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.

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?

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

Published

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…

Former White House Doc Says Biden’s Mental Health Will Force Him Out of Office

And he did not mince his words.

Published

As soon as Joe Biden found himself on the path to the presidency, the murmurs about his mental health began. Biden has always been a gaffe-machine, providing our nation with a ridiculous number of bizarre and unfortunate statements throughout the years.  But, in 2021, it appears that Biden’s issues are no longer funny or jovial, with many suggesting that his mental health is in a serious decline. This includes a former White House physician, who painted a terrifying picture of where all of this could be headed.  Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), formerly the White House physician, said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that he believes President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or be removed with the 25th Amendment. And Jackson didn’t pull any punches. “I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now. And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” Jackson added, “Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people? There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now.” Jackson’s underestimation of political biases aside, he’s certainly not the only one wondering just how fit Biden’s mental…
