World’s Most Valuable Company Invests in New York, Makes Ocasio-Cortez Furious

This is liberalism at its finest.

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not at all happy about, Amazon, arguably the most valuable and important company in the world investing in the city of New York.

Apparently there’s a problem with the idea of a company investing billions of dollars and creating 25,000 jobs in her city that just irks her to no end. After all, why would anyone want to see folks going back to work, providing for themselves and their families, and having a number of doors suddenly open to them, when they can have the government take care of them from cradle to grave?

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday:

New York City and Northern Virginia will be the homes for Amazon.com Inc.’s second and third headquarters, according to people familiar with the matter, ending a more than yearlong public contest that started with 238 candidates and ended with a surprise split of its so-called HQ2.

Amazon is dividing the second headquarters evenly between New York’s Long Island City and Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhoods, which are both located directly across from the major city centers. The company plans to evenly split the offices with as many as 25,000 employees.

The decision effectively gives Amazon a major presence in three coastal hubs that politically lean left, at a time when tech companies are under scrutiny for their perceived elitism and liberal social views.

“Amazon is a billion-dollar company,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.”

Ocasio-Cortez provided no evidence that residents in her district were angered by Amazon’s decision. As for Amazon receiving tax breaks, the Journal only notes that the company’s decision to open additional headquarters “has brought additional scrutiny to potential incentives Amazon might receive to locate in certain areas.”

Like any good socialist, Ocasio-Cortez stated that she wants Amazon to “pay their fair share,” which is code word for “wealth redistribution.”

“Lastly, this isn’t just about one company or one headquarters. It’s about cost of living, corps paying their fair share, etc.,” she wrote. “It’s not about picking a fight, either. I was elected to advocate for our community’s interests – & they‘ve requested, clearly, to voice their concerns.”

How sad is it that instead of seeing this as a fantastic opportunity for the folks who live in her local community, providing them with much needed economic stimulation, she sees it as a greedy corporation — that she herself probably uses — coming to take advantage of the less fortunate.

This is the kind of warped mindset that leftism produces and when applied to the real world, it can cause some serious damage.

BOMBSHELL: New Report to Show Obama Interfered MORE Than Putin In 2016 Election

WELL, WELL, WELL!!

Now that President Trump has cleared of “colluding” with Russia during the 2016 election, more and more information points to the Obama White House’s wrongdoing. It looks like a new report, set to drop in May or June, will show that Barack Obama interfered more in the 2016 presidential election that Russian President Vladimir Putin. Former US Attorney Joe diGenova recently appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” He noted, “The Horowitz report is coming out in May or early June. There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone. That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWH8i5jQNPM MORE: BREAKING: FBI agents Joe Pientka and Mike Gaeta, along with DOJ official Stu Evans, are figuring prominently as witnesses in IG Horowitz’s investigation of department FISA abuses.

INSTANT CLASSIC: AOC Tries To Shame ‘GOP’ Lawmaker, But It Turns Out He Is A Democrat

A MUST SHARE!

Oh man, LOL. OH, BOY!! Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez…(pause to take a breath from laughing)…thought she was attacking the GOP. Instead, she proved how ignorant she truly is by knowing that Rep. John Yarmouth is a Democrat. If this isn’t an instant classic than nothing is! From Daily Wire: Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat. The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!” https://twitter.com/KYGOP/status/1121440855770968065?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121440855770968065&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra AOC’s response: https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121455629149921280?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121455629149921280&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra YIKES! https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121451199918739456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121451199918739456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra Right before the screw up, AOC was doing what she does best: blasting Republicans on Twitter. LOOK: To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system: Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?” Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?” Bc that question reflects WAY more people. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121421715324772354 Reminder: – Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration – Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes. – Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121434432840376322 Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.” Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in the…
