AOC Melted Down and Screamed at Border Control Agents in Texas

With all the reporting about the Facebook page that included some border patrol agents being rude to Alandria Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez, this has been mostly overlooked.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., screamed at federal law enforcement agents “in a threatening manner” during a visit to a Border Patrol facility in El Paso, Texas, and refused to tour the facility, according to two people who witnessed the incident. 

A group of 14 House Democrats, including Ocasio-Cortez, and their aides kicked off their visit to the region at about 11 a.m. MST Monday at the El Paso Station on Hondo Pass Drive.

The group was standing inside the station near an area where migrants are held when Ocasio-Cortez left them to sit inside a nearby holding area with a family as the other lawmakers and aides were briefed on station operations.

“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” said one witness who said he was stunned by the outburst in front of approximately 40 people. 

“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … ” the same person said. “They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’” 

A second official said she went in and out of the cell during the group’s briefing nearby and returned to the group several times to share information she had learned from detainees, including that one person had drunk from a toilet. 

The congresswoman told the group she would not go with the 13 other House Democrats on the tour of the facility and stayed with the family.

AOC: Trump Will Beat the Democrats if They Nominate Biden

Actually, Trump will beat the Democrats if AOC keeps talking.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez predicted President Trump will be reelected if Democrats nominate Joe Biden to challenge him in 2020. 

The New York congresswoman said Biden, the front-runner in the Democratic presidential primary, is “not a pragmatic choice” because he could repel more liberal Democrats while appealing to Trump voters. 

“That’s my frustration with politics today, that they’re willing to give up every single person in America just for that dude in a diner,” she told Vogue. “Just so that you can get this very specific slice of Trump voters? If you pick the perfect candidate like Joe Biden to win that guy in the diner, the cost will make you lose because you will depress turnout as well. And that’s exactly what happened to 2016. We picked the logically fitting candidate, but that candidate did not inspire the turnout that we needed.”

This gets a little repetitive after a while, but I guess that’s the point.

This juvenile is running the Democratic Party. One commentator wrote Tuesday that she is the product of our new educational system, which is not an educational system, but an indoctrination factory.

I think that’s probably part of what’s going on here. More AOC’s are being mass-produced as I write this. Maybe your own kids and grandkids.

AOC Disagrees With Pelosi, Wants to Impeach Trump

Every committee in the House is investigating President Trump. The entire caucus is desperate to impeach him.

But a couple of the sane people in the room – relatively sane people, anyway – understand that this will backfire on Democrats.

But unfortunately for the Democrats, the inmates are running the asylum. And there are a lot more inmates than doctors and nurses, and there’s no medication either.

According to the Washington Examiner:

House Democrats aren’t giving up on attempting to impeach President Trump, even though Speaker Nancy Pelosi all but dismissed it in an interview published Monday.

“I happen to disagree with that take,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-N.Y., told the Washington Examiner Monday night, responding to the Pelosi interview. “But you know, she’s the speaker. … I think we’ll see.”

Pelosi told the Washington Post she doesn’t support the House trying to impeach Trump. “He’s just not worth it,” the California Democrat said in the interview.

Pelosi’s comments contradict the views of many House Democrats who are eager to pursue a path to impeachment, either from the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe or new, broad House investigations that will examine Trump’s business dealings and potential conflicts of interest.

Alexandria Ocasio​-Cortez’s Luxury Digs: No Poor People Allowed​

Well, it looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did, in fact, find an apartment, despite her concerns about affordable housing in Washington. A nice one.

And why shouldn’t socialists live the good life while fighting to take it away from others? It’s not easy to foster social change if there aren’t a couple of swimming pools at hand in which to relax and if your apartment lacks the proper feng shui.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently moved into a luxury apartment complex in Washington, D.C. that does not offer the affordable housing units that were a key plank in the New York congresswoman’s campaign platform. Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who said in November that she was concerned about being able to afford rent in D.C., now earns a $174,000 annual salary and is living in a newly built high-rise in the city’s Navy Yard area, the Washington Free Beacon reported last week.

Ocasio-Cortez’s new building — built by leading D.C. developer WC Smith — is part of a luxury complex whose owners specifically do not offer affordable units under Washington, D.C.’s Affordable Dwelling Units program. The Washington Examiner is not naming the building or complex.

In 2018, a civil rights attorney suedthe Washington, D.C. government for allegedly discriminatory gentrification policies, claiming that development in Navy Yard area and other parts of southeast D.C. encouraged an influx of affluent “millennial creatives” who displaced minority residents. Her new apartment complex — which boasts on its website that it vows to take “luxury apartment living” to a higher level — offers over 100,000 square feet of amenities for its residents. 

These include: two private massage rooms with state-of-the-art hydrotherapy beds; men’s and women’s saunas; a full-scale demonstration kitchen with wood-fired pizza oven; a 25-meter indoor lap pool; a rooftop infinity pool with panoramic views of the Capitol; a Peloton cycling studio with over a dozen bikes; and a fireside lounge featuring a Steinway & Sons player piano. Also included is a PGA-grade golf simulation lounge with a wrap-around screen and viewing bar that allows residents to play virtually at dozens of the world’s most exclusive golf courses with the touch of a button.

Good. If she represents the future of the Democratic Party, then the Democratic Party doesn’t have much of a future. I don’t think this country is ready for socialism. Not yet, anyway. We still have to more work to do on getting enlightened, dontcha know. The RNC is smart to be promoting this video or… Continue Reading

A Gift to the GOP: Democrats Move Toward Leninism Light

The victory of extreme leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York over Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat and someone who many thought would replace Nancy Pelosi, is a huge win for Republicans and President Trump.
