  • PolitiFact's Lame Hit on PJ Media: AOC Wasn't 'Crying Over a Parking Lot,' It Was a Road!

    07/23/2019 9:10:57 AM PDT · by rktman · 7 replies ^ | 7/23/2019 | Tim Graham
    PolitiFact underlined its hypersensitivity to attacks on liberals on Monday by declaring a "Viral Image" of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be "FALSE." The site tweeted: Was @AOC crying over a parking lot while protesting family separation? False, she was standing on a road to a migrant facility, which was in her line of gaze, and was just beyond the port of entry. "Fact" checkers Ciara O'Rourke and Stefanie Pousolides were upset with the Russian-puppet outfit RT and Jim Treacher at PJ Media for mocking the pictures. This is almost a month old, so you can't credit PolitiFact for responding quickly. This...
  • AOC Claims President Trump is “Sowing Violence”

    Despite the Antifa terrorist who tried to firebomb an ICE facility citing her rhetoric numerous times, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pointing the finger at President Trump for “sowing violence”. “This is Trump’s goal when he uses targeted language & threatens elected officials who don’t agree w/ his political agenda. It’s authoritarian behavior,” tweeted AOC. “The President is sowing violence. He’s creating an environment where people can get hurt & he claims plausible deniability,” she added. The tweet was in relation to a Louisiana police officer allegedly remarking that AOC “needs a round – and I don’t mean the kind she used...

    Two members of a police department in a New Orleans suburb were fired Monday — one for a Facebook post calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “vile idiot” and suggesting that she be shot, the other for “liking” the post. Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson announced the terminations Monday. Officer Charlie Rispoli was fired for a post saying Ocasio-Cortez “needs a round” and not “the kind she used to serve” — an apparent reference to her having once been a bartender. Officer Angelo Varisco was fired for “liking” the post. “It’s very disappointing,” Lawson said, adding that the Gretna department...
  • Ted Cruz, progressive hero? Texan defies hard-liner image with AOC cooperation and more

    Something's changed about Ted Cruz – and it’s not just the beard. First, there was the common ground with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Then, there was the push for people to donate supplies to detained migrants at the border. Then, Cruz called out Tennessee for honoring a Confederate Army general with an ugly past. Is the senator from Texas – the unapologetic conservative who ran for president in 2016 saying Republicans win by painting “in bold colors, not pale pastels”– making a conscious effort to expand his appeal beyond conservatives? “I do think it’s intentional,” said Brendan Steinhauser, a Republican consultant based...
  • Democrats Should Unify Behind AOC, Not Pelosi [Fun read from crazed moonbat!]

    Voters want impeachment and a progressive policy agenda. House leaders have another idea. When people say that Democrats should unify, the part they leave out is most important: Around what? Nearly everyone in Washington seems to assume that progressives should shut up, accept their place, and unify around the status quo. Think about what an arrogant and preposterous request that is. Progressive leaders, including our representatives in Congress, should abandon all of our policy positions and sell out our voters to please the Democratic establishment. Saying “hell no” to that would be an enormous understatement. If Democratic leaders don’t want...

    Like Modi, Trump is probably headed to a victory with a bigger margin with this strategy and the Democrats are waltzing into the trap. This week saw some remarkable political manoeuvring from US President Donald Trump. The question is, what do we make of his “go back” tweets on the four Congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar? Is it the new normal in US politics, where accusations of racism fly thick and fast and where not-so-racist House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prefers aligning with the extreme-Left against a more-racist Trump? When Nancy Pelosi herself was called...

    After belittling the Holocaust by comparing holding facilities for illegal aliens to Nazi concentration camps in World War II now Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to create a 9-11 style commission to investigate the Department of Homeland Security. AOC is open borders. She believes women and children entering the US should not be held in detention… at all.

    They are a match made in their political heaven. Tom Steyer and his money along with Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her Justice Democrats. As the 2020 election nears, they will be two of the generals in the Democrats’ civil war. The party that loses the White House often struggles to find unity. When Barack Obama defeated John McCain, the Republicans struggled to find a unifying leader and a unifying message for years. With Trump in the White House and his 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, according to Gallup, Republicans are unified. The Democrats are not. On the contrary, the Democrats...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) assured CBS’ Gayle King that there was no fundamental fracture within the Democratic Party. Who is she kidding? Honestly, congresswoman, the bad news for you is that the entire country isn’t on drugs, so no one will believe such an absurd comment. You just accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of racism, of saddling you with so much work through your committees in order to keep you out of the spotlight. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) said at Netroots Nation over the weekend that any black, Hispanic, or LGBT lawmakers who side with Pelosi are pretty much race...

    President Trump on Wednesday said that he referred to Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as just “Cortez” because he doesn’t “have time to go with three different names.” Trump made the comment during a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Wednesday night while recalling a brief exchange he previously shared about the New York Democrat’s name. “They said, ‘That’s not her name, sir,’” Trump recalled, “I said, ‘no, no, I don’t have time to go with three different names. We’ll call her Cortez. Takes too much time.”

    While the race to be the next president pretty much begins on inauguration day in the modern era, congressional races tend to start a bit later. Yet with more than fifteen months to go, freshman congresswoman and “squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already drawn a challenger who officially launched her campaign today. Shockingly, we’re not talking about a Democrat hoping to take AOC on in the primary, but a Republican. Scherie Murray came to America from Jamaica as a child, is a successful businesswoman and has been regularly involved in NY GOP politics. To call this a steep, uphill...

    EXCLUSIVE -- Scherie Murray, a New York businesswoman who immigrated from Jamaica as a child and is active in state Republican politics, is launching a campaign Wednesday for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Fox News has learned. In a phone interview, Murray, 38, confirmed her intention to run for the New York congressional seat as a Republican. “There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told Fox News. “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the...

    The Democratic Party bears little resemblance to the themes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton embraced in the 2008 primaries. The parameters of marriage — “between a man and woman,” in Obama’s words — have now transmogrified beyond gay civil unions to legal gay marriage to transgendered fixations. Obama once protested that he was no king who could open the border and grant amnesties by fiat. Yet his view of immigration has metamorphosed well beyond Dreamers into Democratic candidates going into Mexico to escort aliens unlawfully into our country — and 500 sanctuary jurisdictions in which federal immigration law is all...

    President Donald Trump may have finally met his match: The Squad. The famously foul-mouthed President on Sunday launched yet another Twitter tirade, saying that the four congresswomen, known as The Squad -- US Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib -- should "go back" to the countries they came from. All four are US citizens, and three were born in the United States (Omar is a refugee from Somalia who spent part of her life in a Kenyan refugee camp). But the women haven't backed down. Nor have they responded with platitudes or undeserved tact. Instead, they've...
