Queens. Bronx. Come on, man…

It’s just comical.

AOC literally has no clue how anything works.

Need more proof? Okay, but you asked for it…

The freshman lawmaker, who sits on the Oversight panel, stood at the witness table Thursday and raised her hand to be sworn in for a hearing focused on conditions for migrants families at the United States’s southern border.

In response to a tweet from MSNBC host and liberal commentator Mika Brzezinski questioning why the lawmaker was sworn in — a step taken for witnesses but not usually for members of Congress — Ocasio-Cortez maintained she was asked to make the move.

MSNBC Mika’s tweet:

What is this. Why? @AOC ?

AOC’s response to Mika:

Hey Mika – GOP has alleged that I am lying about the accounts of migrant women at the border, particularly about the fact that they were were told to drink out of a toilet bowl.

Committee staff conferred with me ahead of time about formally requesting to be sworn in.

AOC and her ilk continue to do everything in their power to re-write the greatest single document in the history of any nation.

Check out her latest, via Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”

AOC said, “We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right. What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.

She added, “I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right? Wrong. Because one of the big things that we talked about was that we need to clean our buildings. … When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we’re talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn’t mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem happy or sad after learning that a billionaire is going to pay off student debt for the entire 2019 graduating class of Morehouse College.

But conservatives on Twitter let her know what she missed.

Here’s her tweet:

Every Morehouse Class of 2019 student is getting their student debt load paid off by their commencement speaker.

This could be the start of what’s known in Econ as a ‘natural experiment.’ Follow these students & compare their life choices w their peers over the next 10-15 years.

Reactions:

This amazing act of kindness brought to you by a billionaire – and the capitalist system that made his billions possible.

This is how it’s supposed to work – personal and or private charity. It is not the government’s job to pay off debt for college students.

Period the end. 🙂

Good for the students but Robert F. Smith didn’t make his wealth in a #socialist society. He worked at Goldman Sachs, left and built Vista Equity Partners that is worth over $4 billion and manages an estimated $30 billion. That’s called #capitalism.

Sure is nice that a billionaire could pay that as a gift to these students.

Glad no one called them all evil or anything.

People can give things to each other voluntarily? Who knew?

Yay for capitalism!

Save conservative media!

‘We Will Not Stop!’ Maxine Waters Says There May Be More ‘Impeachment Activity’ Later In 2020

Exactly what America does not want to hear…

John Salvatore

Published

Maxine Waters appeared on MSNBC on Sunday to virtually announce that the Senate will acquit Donald Trump. However, that doesn’t mean Democrats won’t stop trying to impeach a duly-elected president who has not committed a single crime. In other words, Republicans need to retain the Senate and win the House at the start of Trump’s second term in office so the nation can have any hope of putting this impeachment embarrassment to bed. Here’s what’s up, via Free Beacon: Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said Sunday that Democrats “will not stop” on impeachment and added that there may be more “impeachment activity” in the near future. “The subpoenas that I have issued that have gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC. “We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gg4xP_uOy4&feature=emb_logo While on CNN late last year, Mad Max did what she does best and attacked POTUS for attempting to make America a safer place. She said, “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border, and basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign. And I think some of that is very racist.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewDay/status/1129367547046813697 Democrats today are a different breed. They care more for bashing Trump than they do helping their country. It’s not only sad, it’s downright un-American.

WATCH: Warren Doesn’t Understand How People Could Vote for ‘Someone Who Lies to Them’

Irony.

Despite claiming she was of Indian decent for decades only to have that myth publicly disproven over an embarrassing phone call, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren think it would be best for the American people to choose a person for office who doesn’t lie. Does this mean she’s dropping from the race? After all, Warren has been caught lying on so many occasions that it’s kind of ridiculous. SMH. The irony. Oh, the irony. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to answer a question from a CBS reporter on Sunday about whether it was acceptable for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public. WATCH: https://twitter.com/cbszak/status/1218971964443893760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218971964443893760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F442220-elizabeth-warren-how-could-the-american-people-want-someone-who-lies-to-them%2F The problem is that Warren can say whatever she wants and get away with it because she has the media on her side. Thanks, Obama. WATCH: Holy shit. I have Warren on video lying about where she sent her kids to school. Sarah Carpenter: “I read that your children went to private schools” Warren: “No my children went to public schools” https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1197972004412051457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197972004412051457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Reactions: Warren was confronted by an activist for sending her son to a private school, and denied doing so. Then she admitted to the ⁦@FreeBeacon⁩ that she sent her son to private school beginning in 5th grade. https://twitter.com/BrentScher/status/1198034214005940224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198034214005940224&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Holy shit. I’m the first to figure it out. I’m nearly certain Elizabeth Warren sent her son to an expensive private school in Austin Texas (Kirby Hall School). Warren has been trying to cover this up since she fights against school choice. https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032032464244736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032032464244736&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F I found this yearbook entry for Alex Warren (born in 1976). It’s the only one. It’s Kirby Hall School. A private school right next to UT in Austin Texas (where Warren was teaching). https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032556240478209?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032556240478209&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Here’s the ONLY family photo I could find of Alex…
