How embarrassing!

Many people on the left are beginning to see Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for what she truly is: a young, energetic, know-nothing.

It’s really that simple.

AOC has ideas but they are all garbage and would never work. That’s kind of a problem.

Her latest defense of the VA even caused one observer to describe the Democrat Socialist as “disconnected from reality.”

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) reinforced her opposition to reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs on Saturday, calling it a “myth” that the system was broken and in need of reform.

Ocasio-Cortez pledged at a town hall a week ago that she would fight bipartisan efforts to reform the scandal-plagued VA health system.

Reactions:

AOC is scary and so disconnected from reality

Instead of “protecting the VA” how about protecting the veterans they are supposed to serve?

The VA isn’t being starved of funds.

How is it possible that @AOC has this so completely wrong?

Only explanation is that she’s lying. The VA lacks ZERO funding. ZERO. They have more money than they know what to do with.

Her intelligence is a myth.

As a disabled veteran who lives in constant debilitating pain, I can say with 100% certainty that the VA is a disgrace. It took over a year for me to be put into “physical therapy” after having my spine fused, and they literally gave up because I didnt show improvement.

They want us to believe it’s all fine and dandy because this is what “Medicare for all” will likely be similar to.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared on the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” this past weekend.

Hosts Daniel Klaidman and Michael Isikoff asked AOC to name three reasons why she wants to impeach President Trump.

That’s when the train came off the tracks.

See for yourself as Alexandria turns into a bumbling mess:

ISIKOFF: What would be your top three if you were drafting the articles of impeachment?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: The top three? I think number one is emoluments. I think it’s always been emoluments. It’s always been about that for me.

ISIKOFF: Two and three?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Two and three. I think two would be tax fraud. And number three, um. Man, number three.

ISIKOFF: Interesting that you don’t mention Russia.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: No, I don’t. Because I think that for a lot of aspects of the Russia investigation, as we saw with the Mueller report, I think there are a lot of parts of the Russia issue that some down to emoluments. Pay-for-play, financial transactions, Trump Tower. It comes down to money. And if we had gotten something from the Mueller report I would probably put that up there as number one, but I feel like it is a little risky to put all your eggs in that basket. And I think a lot of this stuff happens through backdoor bank accounts and stuff like that. So emoluments kind of includes any financial misconduct in relation to Russia.

KLAIDMAN: Specifically on tax fraud, what do you have in mind? Is there something specific, like deflating assets, or the insurance issue. Those issues you brought up when you were questioning Michael Cohen?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: Yeah, I agree, I think it comes to that. There is just so much, like the census, you know, I can’t even, the tax bill, like, what can, there is just so much!

Dr. Fauci Refuses to Rule Out Lockdowns as Omicron Spreads

But have Americans begun to see Fauci as the “boy who cried wolf”?

Published

on

Just in time for the Christmas holiday, Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning that Americans should be ready, willing, and able to lock themselves down once more.

Fauci, who seems to get less popular with Americans by the week, has begun to sound the alarm after the latest “omicron” variant of COVID-19 has begun to mutate and spread out of South Africa.

From a recent appearance on ABC:

Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Should we expect to be seeing more lockdowns again, new lockdowns, more mandates?”

Fauci said, “I don’t know, George, it’s really too early to say. We just really need to, as I said so often, prepare for the worst. It may not be we’ll have to go the route people are saying. We don’t know a lot about this virus. So we want to prepare as best we can, but it may turn out this preparation, although important, may not necessarily push us to the next level.”

And then…

He continued, “People talking about lockdowns, people talking about that, let’s see what the information we’re getting in real time tells us. We’ll make decisions based on the science and the evidence the way we always do. But you want to be prepared to do anything and everything. That’s the reason why we’re paying such close attention to this and why we’re all over it.”

Fauci has earned himself the nickname “Dr. Doom” over the course of the least several years, as his predictions for the pandemic continue to err on the side of abject horror and viral catastrophe.

This latest prediction certainly falls into this category, but many Americans have begun to write Fauci off, citing the “boy who cried wolf” principle.

Vladimir Putin Begins Mass Production of Unstoppable Nuclear Rockets

These missiles are little more than overcompensation, similar to when men with little confidence by a sports car to show off.

Published

on

In a move that reeks of overcompensation in the same way that a loud exhaust on a 4-cylinder car does, Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin is now ramping up production on a bit of nuclear overkill meant to have the rest of the world shaking in their boots.

Putin, after being caught red-handed attempting, (and failing), to influence American politics via some sort of army of cyber-trolls, is now pouring Russian resources into amassing a cadre of “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles.

MASS production of Russia’s terrifying Zircon hypersonic missile has begun, as tensions with the West mount.

The Kremlin boasts that the 6670mph weapon – which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead – is “unstoppable”.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November. A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time. Vladimir Putin has ordered the Zircon missile to be deployed next year by the Russian Navy boasting that it is “truly unparalleled … in the world”. And while this all may sound very frightening, the move is likely just another bit of puffery from Putin. The US and Russia have long had a policy of “mutually assured destruction”, in which the two nations would reciprocate any nuclear strike against them with a full emptying of their entire nuclear arsenal.  Even if Putin managed to get one of these “unstoppable” devices airborne in the direction of the United States, it would be a death sentence for everyone from Moscow to Mongolia.
