As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

AOC is Already Running for President

That’s the buzz, at least the buzz the Politico is trying to create.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be 35 in October 2024. She never stops talking, even when she stops thinking. But I wouldn’t underestimate her. I have no doubt that she, and the people behind her, believe she can and should become president.

Look for her not to run in 2024 but to be considered for Vice President, even then. I mean, she will have more relevant experience than Barack Obama had at the point that he ran for president, so why not?

Once, you needed a decent amount of political experience or to have been a general to become president. Donald Trump had run a major corporation for years before running. But with Obama, qualifications for the post went out the window, with predictable results, given his presidency.

AOC, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren — these are very dangerous people, true socialists who would rearrange our entire system. And remember, there is no such thing as a democratic Socialist, because the thinking does not comport with democracy. It’s too certain of itself, but because it cannot succeed, it must take draconian steps like limiting freedom in order to try.

I don’t think the threat of a socialist takeover in this country has ever been more serious.

According to Politico:

LOS ANGELES — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Bernie Sanders at a jampacked beach-side rally last week when she took a moment to look beyond 2020.

“I know, and we all know, that this isn’t just about Bernie Sanders,” she said. “This is about a movement that has been decades in the making.”

Since endorsing him in October, Ocasio-Cortez has become a supercharged surrogate for Sanders in early-voting and delegate-rich states. As she’s drawn massive crowds alongside the Vermont senator in Iowa, Nevada, California and New York, progressive insiders and activists are increasingly whispering about Ocasio-Cortez inheriting the movement one day — and running for the White House with it behind her.

“The future of the Democratic Party is not Pete Buttigieg. It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, president of the California Young Democrats, which has endorsed Sanders. “She has gripped the attention of fellow millennials across the country. The Green New Deal has changed the conversation on environmental action in the Democratic Party.”

While the two democratic socialists are hyperfocused on 2020, some political operatives see their joint appearances as also laying the groundwork for a possible Ocasio-Cortez bid one day, purposefully or not. They’ve shown that she can excite Democrats in critical early-voting states.

The largest crowds at any presidential candidate event this year featured Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez. The events have allowed Ocasio-Cortez to hone her stump speech, which is not focused solely on Sanders and often includes long passages about her progressive vision. In one instance, she gave a keynote talk at a Las Vegas town hall for the campaign — delivered in Spanish — without Sanders present.

AOC Spends $300 on a Haircut

Once the socialist paradise is all set up, everyone will get a $300 haircut. So this is not hypocritical.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has reportedly spent over $300 on her new hairstyle at an upscale Washington salon.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, spent $80 on a haircut and an additional $180 on low lights at the high-end Last Tangle salon in the district. If she tipped the customary 20%, her bill would have totaled $312 for a single hair style.

The freshman congresswoman from New York has made waves supporting socialist ideals since assuming office in early 2019. Despite fighting for inflated government-mandated minimum wages and promoting the “Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez expressed disappointment when she did not receive a congressional raise to her $174,000 salary this summer. 

AOC Agrees That Israel is “Criminal”

Stephen Miller a white supremacist? Israel “very criminal”?

Ladies and gentleman — and fellow Jews, most of whom are liberals — this is your new Democratic Party. Enjoy.

From the Washington Examiner:

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agreed with a New York radio host who said that what’s going on in Israel is “very criminal” on Tuesday.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared on Ebro In The Morning and discussed the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Now you look around the globe and you have multiple corrupt governments working together — you’ve got Israel, you’ve got America, you’ve got Russia, you’ve got the Saudis, right — all working in concert. And I bring up Israel because you’ve been vocal about Palestine, the occupation and what needs to go on there. And specifically, I even think people in Israel are trying to get Netanyahu as well,” the host said.

“I agree, I agree with that,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

The host continued, “There’s a lot of young Jewish people that I know that are absolutely against the occupation and I wanted you, because often on this program, we have the freedom to address the fact that something that you know people, it’s an oxymoron, how do you have white supremacist Jews? How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish and it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing and what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very deep, it is very, very criminal. It is very, very unjust.”

“Absolutely, and I think to where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational thing. I think that when we start looking at it through that lens, a lot of this stuff starts to make sense. It’s like what you’re talking about, young Jews in Israel are sick of this.”

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… Continue Reading

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… Continue Reading
