Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Hall of Fame

The latest gaff by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kind of makes me wonder if she is a GOP operative secretly working to stop Bernie Sanders style socialism.  Ocasio-Cortez was recently in Kansas campaigning for Brent Welder, promising to “flip this seat red”.

This follows Ocasio-Cortez’s assertion that the only reason unemployment is so low is because everyone has two jobs.  Unemployment is actually measured by surveying the percentage of people who are currently seeking employment.  It has nothing to do with how many jobs each person has.

Ocasio-Cortez got famous for beating Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th district.  The district is so blue that if Crowley and Ocasio-Cortez both ran and split the liberal vote, one of them would still win.  But Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem to take that into account when she attacked Crowley for trying to run a third party campaign because he had originally registered for multiple parties, and New York won’t allow him to remove his name from the ballot.  Crowley endorsed her and promised to support her, but Ocasio-Cortez lashed out in paranoia when she found out his name would still be on the ballot.

Perhaps what made her infamous though was her admission that she has no clue what she’s talking about when it comes to Israel.  Ocasio-Cortez fumbled through an interview where she tried to insinuate that Israel was blocking Palestinians from accessing their homes and actively occupying Palestine.  Eventually she gave up.  In a later interview, she promised that she would “get with activists” so she could learn more about the Israel/Palestine issue.

Not all Democrats are on the Ocasio-Cortez Socialist train.  Ocasio-Cortez herself supported lower taxes when she was a business owner, but her business failed shortly before she switched to Socialism and tried to get involved in politics for the first time.  At age 26, Ocasio-Cortez went to vote for the first time and discovered she had been purged from the New York voter rolls for 8 years of inactivity.  That was 2016.  She then joined the Bernie Sanders campaign and rose from non-voting millennial failed business owner to rising star of the DNC.  But not all Democrats are happy with her.

Florida representative Alcee Hastings has already shut down any prospects of her taking over the DNC.  “Meteors fizz out,” Hastings said. “what she will learn in this institution is that it’s glacial to begin with, and therefore no matter how far you rise, that’s just how far you will ultimately get your comeuppance.”

Perhaps her paranoia was justified.  One time relevant Democrat Joe Lieberman is telling Democrats to vote for Joe Crowley.  The party split between moderates and socialists is more defined than ever.  Who knows, maybe she’ll succeed in turning more districts “red”.

Need to Know 7/18/18

Democrats are claiming that Trump told Russia to hack the DNC.  What they are actually referring to was a campaign speech Trump gave after Hillary Clinton deleted 30,000 emails under subpoena from her illegal private server.  The FBI couldn’t find those incriminating emails, so Trump joked that he hoped the Russians could find them.  And that is the closest thing we have to Russian Collusion.

David Love, writing for CNN, is suggesting that #walkaway is actually a ploy by the Russians to make people think that there is an exodus from the Democrat party by those disillusioned with the extreme turn the party has taken toward Socialism.  So when your friends use #walkaway, just know that means they are actually a Russian bot.

Trump is being accused of going soft on the Russians by not starting a war with Putin over the hackers.  But actually, it was the Obama administration who decided to back burner efforts to stop Russian hackers.  After US intel agencies had developed a plan to fight back against Russian hacker attacks, Susan Rice issued a stand down order.

Ocasio-Cortez has screwed up on Israel again.  Despite holding a degree in international relations, the young Socialist candidate for New York’s 14th district has now bumbled through three different interviews on questions about Israel.  But take heart, she is going to be “speaking to activists” so they can finally tell her what to think about Israel.  I feel better already.
