Who’s Been Financially Backing Ocasio-Cortez? The Answer May (Not) Surprise You

Published

on

I’m surprised no one figured this out earlier.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old Congressional candidate who has been taking the media by storm (and providing the right-wing media with ample comedic material with her frequent demonstrations of just how uninformed, ignorant, and immature she is), rose to stardom almost overnight after upsetting prominent Democrat NY Rep. Joseph Crowley in the primary race.

Everyone was stunned that such a little-known candidate with so little experience and no name recognition could actually win the nomination. Clearly, it was an incredible victory for a small, grassroots campaign, by the people, and for the people.

…Or was it?

I’ve got three words for you: follow the money.

In progressive politics, all roads lead back to, you guessed it, George Soros. 

Researcher Richard Weinstein, curious about Ocasio-Cortez’s dubiously rapid rise to fame, appears to have been the first to discover this trail. First, he uncovered Ocasio-Cortez’s association with a group called “Brand New Congress.” Back in 2017, her website belonged to this group.

He explained his findings in a series of tweets:

So what is “Brand New Congress”, exactly? It appears to be a group of Bernie staffers dedicated to, well, a “brand new Congress” full of Sanders-style far-left progressives. Like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

There’s even a policy page which all potential candidates must sign on to:

Looking at the Brand New Congress founder,  Saikat Chakrabarti, it appears he is also the executive director of “Justice Democrats”, an affiliated PAC which was co-founded by none other than Cenk Uygur, the radically progressive host of “The Young Turks.”

Aaaand this is where we find George Soros, whose Media Consortium is what Weinstein calls the “deep pockets” behind the Young Turks and their political endeavors.

“There is no such thing as a grassroots campaign,” says Glenn Beck, who spoke with Weinstein on his television show this week. “The story is that she went out and knocked on doors — which I believe she did, she worked hard for it — but she also has, apparently, funding and support from very Leftist organizations, including George Soros.”

Don’t they all?

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

Published

on

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.

Psaki Sinks to New Low with Tone-Deaf Supply Chain Quip

Middle class Americans didn’t find it very funny.

Published

on

Americans the nation over are nervous.  They are suffering.  They are sick with anxiety.

The Biden administration has been an experiment in many ways, not the least of which is the idea that he was elected not for who he is, but for who he was not – namely, Donald Trump.  Biden was the Democrats’ stop-gap, and a reluctant one at that, and now we are all paying the price for giving this “anti-voting” whimsy.

The last 8 months have been brutal for many of us, and with a swiftly worsening supply chain situation beginning to impact local grocery shelves and Christmas shopping lists, things are only going to get tighter for the American middle class.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki finds it hilarious, however.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki cracked a joke Tuesday about the supply chain crisis affecting businesses and consumers across the country, saying it’s a “tragedy” some people may have to wait longer for their treadmill to arrive.

“The tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed,” Psaki sighed during her daily press briefing.

Psaki was asked to address the supply chain disruptions across the country that have left store shelves bare ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season. One reporter asked why President Biden hadn’t acted sooner to address the crisis and whether his administration had failed to anticipate the issue.

The poorly-timed attempt at humor quickly faced intense backlash on social media, with users lamenting the elitist sentiment.

President Biden has suggested that port operations increase the length of their working day to 24 hours in order to expedite backed-up shipping lanes.
