WATCH: Ocasio-Cortez Complains On Video About Having to Work ‘All The Time’

Is this for real? Can she be serious?

Freshman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) earns $174,000 annually, just like every other member of Congress – aside from the leaders of the House and Senate, who make more.

The 29-year-old Alexandria has only been in office for a couple of months and she’s already complaining about working “all the time.”

No joke.

AOC: “Okay guys, I’m just getting out of work, that’s my office behind me.”

AOC: “Um the thing they don’t tell you about working in Congress is that if you do what you’re supposed to do, you’re working all the time, which means you have no time to set up your life.

WATCH:

Americans work, Alexandria. It’s what we do.

For $174,000, AOC has to know she’s doing far better than the average worker, right? RIGHT!?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has finally come out to tell Ocasio-Cortez that enough is enough with the “Green New Deal.”

From Daily Wire:

Pelosi has been coy about her support for the GND (or lack thereof), calling the plan “enthusiastic” when it first debuted earlier in February, and has regularly distanced herself from Ocasio-Cortez — and she hasn’t tabled the Green New Deal for a vote, leaving it effectively dead as an answer to “climate change.”

This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her characteristic subtle criticism on Ocasio-Cortez and her partner in the Green New Deal, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), in an interview with a reporter from “Rolling Stone” magazine, who asked her why she had yet to allow House Democrats to dicuss the plan openly.

“The Green New Deal,” Pelosi said, goes “beyond our charge.” and “is not what we hope to achieve.”

This is not exactly the first time a member of AOC’s own party has told her to stop.

Not even close, actually.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.

From Daily Wire:

Bloomberg reports that Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left plan would “tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum, which is run by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the non-partisan CBO from 2003 to 2005.”

The enormous price tag, which amounts to over $650,000 per U.S. household, covers a low-carbon electricity grid, net zero emissions transportation system, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, guaranteed green housing, and food security.

S. Mitra Kalita has a blue checkmark on Twitter and works in the programming department for CNN.

She sent the following tweet:

Seeing the words “prepared” and “authentic” to describe @AOC, often with surprise that she’s made it so far. This is the superpower of women of color: to prep more than everyone else, read the room, yet stay true to yourself because the alternative ain’t worth it. Just guessing.

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded, essentially playing the victim card:

People think it’s a joke when folks say we have to work 2x as hard for the same seat.

Whether you believe it or not, the upside is when we do get here,we’re used to being held to a diff bar. To being doubted. To getting new hoops thrown @ us last min.

So we know how to perform.

Twiter took notice, and things quickly backfired on Alexandria:

Seattle Gov’t Held Training Session for Whites to Examine ‘Complicity’ In ‘White Supremacy’

Disturbing.

John Salvatore

Race, race, race. That’s all that matters to Democrats. As long as they can continue to divide Americans based on skin color, it seems like they’re having a good day. Check out what’s happening in Seattle, via City Journal: Last month, the City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.” Hoping to learn more, I submitted a public records request for all documentation related to the training. The results are disturbing. At the beginning of the session, the trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color. The trainers claim that “individualism,” “perfectionism,” “intellectualization,” and “objectivity” are all vestiges of this internalized racial oppression and must be abandoned in favor of social-justice principles. In conceptual terms, the city frames the discussion around the idea that black Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “blackness” and white Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “whiteness”—that is, the new metaphysics of good and evil.

De Blasio: All Large Gatherings to be Banned In NYC, Except for Black Lives Matter Protests

He’s quite the card…

John Salvatore

Published

There should be very little doubt that spiking COVID-19 numbers are due to more testing nationwide, along with Black Lives Matter protests/riots. That’s just the truth, whether some care to admit it or not. On Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will ban all large gatherings in the city – except for BLM nonsense. WATCH: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1281354252422651904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1281354252422651904%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fde-blasio-to-ban-all-large-gatherings-in-nyc-except-black-lives-matter-protests%2F More from Fox News: Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell ripped New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on “Bill Hemmer Reports” Thursday for commissioning local artists to paint the legend “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower. An animated de Blasio slammed Trump during public remarks on the block, and was cheered loudly when he said the artwork will “show Donald Trump what he does not understand.” Rivera noted that even as the mayor snipes at Trump, he is asking the federal government for $7 billion to close a gap in the city budget caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
