  • AOC allegedly on hook for unpaid seven-year-old tax bill: report

    NY Post via Fox News ^ | 5/18/20 | Carl Campanile
    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on the rich - just not pay her own. The Democratic socialist congresswoman from The Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill leftover from a failed business venture. AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint The Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012. As the Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently blames Trump for the fact that New York and New Jersey forced nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. And she apparently doesn’t know that Florida’s sunshine is good for your immune system. And she apparently thinks Florida’s death rate is higher than New York’s and New Jersey’s. Wow!Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets so many different things wrong in the video below.As I have explained here and here, New York and New Jersey both required nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. This caused the disease to spread, and infect, and kill,...
  • Ocasio-Cortez claps back at Jonah Goldberg: 'Totally get it if you've never bothered to read the legislation'

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) defended her Green New Deal initiative after The Dispatch editor Jonah Goldberg called the legislation a “fantasy.” “Totally get it if you’ve never bothered to read the legislation you’re commenting so authoritatively on,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. Jonah Goldberg Tweet: "Man this is so dumb and dishonest. You could confiscate every penny held by every billionaire and multimillionaire in America and it wouldn't cover a fraction of your Green New Deal fantasy. " Goldberg, a former National Review columnist, responded to a different tweet from the congresswoman suggesting higher taxes for the rich could have...
  • AOC tells democratic socialists to 'create the conditions' for a general strike

    AOC tells democratic socialists it's their 'responsibility' to 'create the conditions' for a general strike Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., indicated to the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) that they couldn't outright call for things like a general strike amid the coronavirus crisis, but should slowly change public opinion before proposing "alternative structures" for society. "You know, there's a lot of people saying, 'call for a general strike, call for a general strike,'" the freshman congresswoman said during a DSA video event on Tuesday. "The majority of Americans don't know what a general strike is and so our responsibility is to...

  • If you like the pandemic lockdown, you're going to love the 'Green New Deal'

    05/03/2020 4:58:29 PM PDT · by Libloather · 17 replies
    When socialist darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez first floated her “Green New Deal,” it was an intangible vision for society rather than a concrete policy proposal. Even after the New York Democrat and her acolytes added details (including a ban on airplanes and flatulent cows) in a voluminous range of policies costing an astounding $93 trillion, the idea of running the economy without fossil fuels seemed unthinkable. Now, however, thanks to the pandemic lockdown of society, the public is in a position to judge what the “Green New Deal” revolution would look like. It's like redoing this global pandemic and economic...

    There has already been reason to suspect that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is daydreaming more than usual about creating a socialist utopia in the midst of this crisis. The other day she said on Twitter that the collapse of oil prices was wonderful to see, ignoring the fact that it could mean hundreds of thousands of people will be out of work soon.AOC quickly pulled down the tweet in question and never really tried to defend the idea massive job losses were good news. But today there’s a preview of an interview she did with Vice in which she suggests...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she may oppose the next federal coronavirus aid bill for being too small and is urging Republicans concerned about the national debt to help her raise taxes to finance items such as recurring $2,000 direct payments. The New York Democrat, a self-declared socialist who represents one of the areas hardest-hit by the virus, said Monday, “We cannot bow to the logic that a dime and a crumb is better than nothing. We need to be able to play hardball.” “If you’re worried about the deficit and if you’re worried about our national debt, let’s raise some...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) criticized the lack of mainstream discussion surrounding the recent sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden made by former Senate staffer Tara Reade, calling the situation a “silencing of all dissent” that amounted to “a form of gaslighting.” “I think it’s legitimate to talk about these things. And if we want, if we again want to have integrity, you can’t say both believe women, support all of this, until it inconveniences you, until it inconveniences us,” Ocasio-Cortez said in response to a question during an online conversation Tuesday night with The Wing, a networking and community...

    New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Tuesday night that she believes the Democratic Party has an obligation to examine a sexual assault allegation made against presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden by Tara Reade, his former aide when he served as Delaware's senator. In response to a question about the allegations during an online conversation with The Wing—a group dedicated to the "professional, civic, social, and economic advancement of women through community"—Ocasio-Cortez said, "I think it's legitimate to talk about these things." "If we again want to have integrity, you can't say, you know, both believe women, support...
  • AOC and Schumer blasted for ‘photo op’ in top coronavirus ZIP code

    NY Post ^ | April 14
    Critics are blasting Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for staging a “photo op” Tuesday in the US ZIP code hardest hit by the coronavirus. A small group gathered in the virally blighted neighborhood of Corona, Queens, in AOC’s district, to hear a pitch for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to offer funeral assistance. The gathering — convened as officials order ordinary New Yorkers to stay home — gave TV networks an opportunity to shoot footage of the duo, but there was no live feed to allow the event to be covered from afar, let alone a virtual press...

    American ^ | April 13, 2020 | Jeffrey Folks
    The March 2020 issue of Fortune magazine focused on the "existential threat" to the Earth posed by global warming, despite the fact that no significant global warming seems to be taking place. With its appealing cover art — an image of the Earth tied up in a plastic trash bag — this issue is just what I'd expect from a liberal outfit. It's typical of climate alarmists to begin by assuming their premise: warming is an existential threat because, well, it is. And anyone who questions that premise is a criminal. Just what is meant by "existential threat" is a...

    Many times, when Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar talk, it’s their lips that move but the voice of Karl Marx that comes pouring out. In videos posted Thursday night by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Omar, D-Minn., suggested a radical transformation of significant parts of the American economy that are essential for fighting the effects of the coronavirus. After complaining that America’s “systemic priorities” are all wrong, AOC said, “We have to start demanding and organizing from the bottom up - from grassroots movements, from nurses to warehouse workers to grocery store employees to the halls of Congress, demanding...

    Pajamas Media ^ | APRIL 4, 2020 | RICK MORAN
    True to form, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is playing the "a crisis is a terrible thing to waste" game and is calling for reparations because minorities are getting the coronavirus at a faster rate than white people. Reparations for being sick, reparations for being a distant ancestor of a former slave, reparations for being a victim of "redlining," reparations for business inequalities -- eventually she's going to run out of white people's money to take. But that won't deter our fearless warrior queen.

    President Trump fired back at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in a scathing letter, responding to criticism of his handling of the coronavirus crisis, telling Schumer: "I never knew how bad of a senator you are." "Thank you for your Democrat public relations letter and incorrect sound bites, which are wrong in every way," Trump said in the letter released by the White House, referring to Schumer's coronavirus criticism earlier Thursday. "As you are aware, Vice President Pence is in charge of the Task Force. By almost all accounts, he has done a spectacular job." Trump’s firery response came...

    The New York Post ^ | 21 March 2020 | By Jon Levine
    Since going to Congress in 2018, Ocasio-Cortez has become the most high-profile Democratic Socialist after Sanders. She commands more than 11 million followers on social media and her pronouncements and opinions on all subjects regularly make news. At just 30 years of age, she is part of the millennial demographic which powered Sanders’ revolution and the two have frequently appeared on the stump together. Still, critics were quick to point out that a coronation wasn’t in the bag, saying AOC — only a House freshman — would have a hard time uniting Sanders’ fractious coalition. “She connects with woke hipsters...
