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

Published

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.

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?
