The title is no joke.

It looks like conservative Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and far-left radical Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) are set to team up.

What do you think of this…?

On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) — a duo in Congress who could not have more polarized views on most issues — signaled support in a potential bill targeting congressmen-turned-lobbyists, AKA “the swamp.”

AOC tweeted:

If you are a member of Congress + leave, you shouldn’t be allowed to turn right around&leverage your service for a lobbyist check.

I don’t think it should be legal at ALL to become a corporate lobbyist if you’ve served in Congress.

At minimum there should be a long wait period.

Cruz’s response:

Here’s something I don’t say often: on this point, I AGREE with @AOC Indeed, I have long called for a LIFETIME BAN on former Members of Congress becoming lobbyists. The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?

AOC fired back:

[email protected] if you’re serious about a clean bill, then I’m down.

Let’s make a deal.

If we can agree on a bill with no partisan snuck-in clauses, no poison pills, etc – just a straight, clean ban on members of Congress becoming paid lobbyists – then I’ll co-lead the bill with you.

Cruz’s retort:

You’re on.

AOC once more:

Okay, with @brianschatz + @tedcruz we’ve got at least one D-R team in the Senate to ban members becoming lobbyists, & myself w/ @chiproytx makes at least one D-R team in the House.

And that’s just in a few hours – there will surely be more from both parties to sign on.

Nice ????????

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just broke dozens of hearts around the nation by once again mocking Ocasio-Cortez.

Pelosi did it on “60 Minutes” with host, Lesley Stahl.

It was blatant. And it was obvious.

In other words, Nancy needs AOC to know who is boss.

Stahl: “So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is can you?

Pelosi: “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream.

Stahl: “You have these wings– AOC, and her group on one side–.

Pelosi: “That’s like five people.

And boom goes the dynamite!

OUCH! Five whole people, huh?

You just know that has to hurt Ocasio-Cortez’s feelings.

WATCH:

Pelosi has already rained on Alexandria’s parade when it comes to her “Green New Deal.”

She recently did it again.

AOC may have a large presence on Twitter, but Nancy couldn’t care less. Here’s why…

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” ⁦@SpeakerPelosi⁩ told me.

Even CNN took notice:

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.

Published

on

Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1173432452435644416 The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.

Published

on

One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
