    In an Instagram post on Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said the Electoral College needs to be abolished. One of her main gripes with the system was its so-called "racism.""The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown," AOC explained. "Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a 'one person, one vote' system where all are counted equally."She addressed the biggest concern behind abolishing the Electoral College: with populous blue states making the decisions for the country as a whole."You may have heard this Electoral College...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brushed aside reporters on Capitol Hill who were waiting in the wings as she emerged from her meeting with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday, annoyed they didn't want to talk about actual issues. .@SpeakerPelosi doesn’t want to talk abt her meeting w/ @AOC. Walks briskly away from reporters & chides them on even covering it. Says she huddles with members “all the time” “I wish you would be interested in [my meeting] from yesterday on $ 4 community health centers.”— Rachael Bade (@rachaelmbade) July 26, 2019 Yet, what did she expect?

    Unfortunately, the U.S. House of Representatives is starting to look more and more like America's universities. Freshmen show up not to learn but to teach. They think they already know it all and see it as their personal mission to set straight the faculty, university administrators and the world. So we see it with "The Squad," the now-famous far-left freshmen four in the House -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley -- who believe they have been elected to a first term in Congress to reinvent what they think is a failed America and set straight the...

    Prior to November 9, 2016, the media used to attempt to tell both sides of a story, provide context, and let readers judge for themselves.President Trump asked for this standard journalistic practice on Monday.These are people in my opinion that hate our country, the president said of the House Democratic squad. Get a list of all of the statements they've made. All I'm saying is that if they're not happy here, they can leave.Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media chose not to do its job. Instead of showing two sides to the story, they devoted 24 hours of coverage accusing the President...

    There is a new trend in politics thats a hit with all the kids. Its been around for a while, but was never really as popular as it is right now. So, in the interest of science, Ive decided to hop on The Squad train and try thinking like a progressive member of Congress. How hard could it be? I was driving to the grocery store the other day and the person in the left turn lane ahead of me did not turn when there was clearly enough room for him to go. I sat there, angry, and then I...

    For years, conservatives have been complaining about the liberal bias on late night shows and Saturday Night Live. “They always attack Republicans and never go after Democrats,” the criticism goes. But this week brought forth the possibility that maybe it’s not bias, maybe it’s something else. It’s possible, judging by what we’ve just witnessed, that comedy writers don’t mock liberals because they have already become a parody, and it’s difficult, if not impossible, to parody a parody.Make no mistake, that’s what the Gang of Four, who call themselves “The Squad,” are: a parody. They’re like a Pavlovian experiment gone wrong...

    Its hard to take braying morons like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Terrorist Cheerleader Twins seriously, but maybe we should. After all, these aspiring dictatorettes are the heart, soul, and perpetually open mouth of todays Democrat Party. We kind of assume they are jokes because, well, they are jokes, but history teaches that the socialist future they advocate is no laughing matter. They are now setting the agenda for one of Americas two great political parties. What would happen if they somehow took power? Not so funny anymore, huh? Americans are used to power changing hands in Washington; about half the...

    There are no two ways about it, the Democrats are in a civil war. Of course, primary season has begun with the passing of the first round of Democratic debates, so one would expect a certain degree of infighting and jockeying for position, as with any political party at such a time. Yet something darker, more deranged, more Orwellian has taken hold. The socialist self-destruction is great for Donald Trump, great for America, and truly great entertainment. The Democrats may as well be living on Animal Farm.For those who have missed it, Nancy Pelosi, the Trotsky/Snowball old school socialist of...

    President Trump has had enough of the liberal New York officials who are waging a legal campaign against him. Former state attorney general Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against Trump last year accusing him of using the Trump Foundation for his own political purposes. The president agreed to dissolve the foundation's assets to other nonprofit organizations, but New York leaders continued to probe. When Letitia James was elected last year after Schneiderman resigned over sexual misconduct allegations, she promised to use her new power specifically to target Trump. And that she has. In her first year on the job, she has...

    While it has taken several months for the mainstream media and the majority of Democrats to catch on, there is finally bipartisan consensus regarding the existence of an immigration crisis at the United States-Mexico border. When reports of appalling conditions at some border detention facilities began to spread, it became clear that there was a moral imperative that something must be done to combat this undeniable humanitarian crisis.On Thursday, the House passed a bipartisan Senate humanitarian aid package which allocates $4.59 billion in supplemental border funding with the ultimate goal of addressing the reports of unacceptable conditions at migrant detention...

    I just finished watching the amazing HBO miniseries "Chernobyl." It's one of the finest series ever produced. The biggest takeaway is how socialists and communists lie. It's in their DNA. They lie about everything. And those lies are often so absurd they get themselves in trouble. When it came to Chernobyl, the Soviet communist propaganda machine lied about everything. Officials denied there was any problem in the first place. Then they denied it was a complete meltdown. They denied nearby towns had to be evacuated. They denied the KGB knew there was a potential problem long before it happened but...

    Vladimir Lenin once proclaimed, Show me who your friends are, and I will tell you what you are. Perhaps in this day of Russian hoax hysteria, quoting a devout socialist dictator may seem a bit, unnecessarily dramatic. But even as a blind squirrel will find the occasional nut, old Vlad had an insightful and, as it turns, prescient point. After all, if you work in a sewer, you will smell like sewage. If you ride in cars with drug dealers, you may, fairly or not, be called a drug runner. This realization is, in this current political climate, proving as...

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem harmless, but she's a virtue signaler on steroids and a nonstop headline-manufacturing machine. The left adores her, and for conservatives, she's a gift that keeps on giving because she is either too naive or arrogant to rein herself in. Don't listen to those who advise not to be roped into her spotlight-seeking trap. Give her all the attention she craves and more rope. AOC conspicuously put her foot in her mouth again, but she clearly likes the taste of it because she refuses to remove it. "This administration has established concentration camps on...

    You often hear climate change described as a global conflict with existential consequences. As Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once put it, "This is our World War II." It would be interesting to know what survivors of, say, Guadalcanal or the Bataan Death March think of that comparison. But never mind. Let's take the hyperbole seriously. If global warming is a war, who is our enemy? Who are we fighting? First on the list would have to be double agents. These are the people who pretend to be on the side of righteousness but in fact are doing the work of dark...

    The New York Postreports that two military veterans walked out of a private meeting with Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez earlier this week after the freshman congresswoman began bashing US foreign policy. However, AOC's office claims the two men are lying.She knocks the country, she knocks the president. And thats not what America is about, Silvio Mazzella, a Vietnam War veteran and treasurer of Community Board 11, told the New York Post.Another veteran, "Anthony Vitaliano an Army veteran who worked in the NYPD for 38 years, and commanded the Bronxs homicide detectives," was sitting right next to the congresswoman...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to be hoping for a gotcha moment during questioning of Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan Tuesday during a House Financial Services Committee Hearing and instead ended up embarrassing herself. Sloan was brought before the panel by Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) as part of an inquiry into fraudulent misconduct by the bank’s employees in recent years. But rather than focus on issues such as the creation of fake accounts, AOC took an odd twist and accused Sloan of “financing the caging of children” and questioned his responsibility for “damages incurred by climate change.”First, her focus on ICE: AOC:...

    The yells of DOWN WITH COMMUNISM! and LONG LIVE CHRIST THE KING! would make the walls of the prison tremble! wrote a 21-year-old poet whod been imprisoned, tortured and threatened with a firing squad by photogenic U.S. media-hailed hipsters whod recently nationalized most of his nations means of production.The defiant yells the imprisoned poet heard almost daily through the window of his gloomy dungeon were always cut short by another one of FUEGO! and a thundering blast -- as Che Guevaras firing-squads murdered defiant young heroes.At the time the poet, name Armando Valladares, was younger than Nick Jonas is today,...

    At SXSW, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) once again went on the attack, saying that Ronald Reagan was a racist who pitted white working class Americans against those of similar economic standing in communities of color. Guy gutted that remark in just one tweet. President Reagan won 49/50 states, 60 percent of the popular vote including 46 percent of the lowest income class, and 58 percent of the second lowest. Let her talk about policy, folks. Just let her talk. Ocasio-Cortez also said America was trash.I wish I could say this is just sour grapes over Hillary Clinton losing, but something...

    The only thing that should keep you roaring in laughter as Nancy Pelosi freaks out trying to keep a lid on the freak show that is the Democratic caucus is the knowledge that the freshmen freakettes giving her fits would impose an ideology of tyranny and murder if given the chance. But you can still allow yourself a good giggle as you watch Nancys dreams of a Democrat majority die on the altar of anti-Semitism, taking away your health insurance, and banning cheeseburgers.This was on display as the Democrats struggled to find a way to publicly pretend to condemn their...

    Fear is a great motivator, as is anger. Those two emotions are among the most powerful and destructive feelings that human beings can experience. Politicians use them, to varying degrees, regularly and effectively. But rarely has a political party so openly embraced these two sentiments as the argument for supporting them. Democrats no longer use fear and anger as tactics, theyre now both the means and the end to winning elections. And for a large percentage of the public, it works.Successful politicians who have a lasting place in history have taken the other route. Ronald Reagan sought to inspire the...
