    TO: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez FROM: Donald F. Kettl and Paul GlastrisDATE: July 1, 2021RE: Only You Can Save the Federal Government It may seem audacious, even patronizing, for two moderate-ish Baby Boomers like us to be offering advice to you, the most influential leader of the Millennial left. But we come in peace, with a message we urge you to consider because, as Princess Leia said to Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re our only hope.You and other progressive leaders have bold ideas for how government can help people and save the planet.

    AOC calls out ‘white men’ who voted against Juneteenth Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called out her House GOP colleagues who voted against establishing “Juneteenth” as a federal holiday. “They were all men and they were all white. Like all white men. There weren’t even women. Like no diversity in it,” AOC told TMZ in an on-the-street interview on Capitol Hill. “It just goes to show that there is a lot of denialism and that also kind of ties into why they don’t want us to teach the history of racism in our school either,” she added, taking a shot at...

    Catholic voters helped elect Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the next U.S. president, as more people belonging to the denomination shrugged off an often hostile clergy and key issues like abortion rights, a recent survey found. While President Donald Trump won support from eight out of every 10 white evangelical Christian voters, Catholics were split nearly down the middle between him and Biden, according to data from AP VoteCast. Fifty percent of Catholics backed Trump while 49 percent favored Biden. In the 2020 election, Catholic voters accounted for a significant 22 percent of the electorate—a crucial demographic for either candidate...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed Friday evening that 50,000 Americans died because the Senate failed to remove President Donald Trump from office during the impeachment trial in February. (snip) Schiff told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: There is one thing that, really, I have to say haunts me from the trial and it was before that snippet you showed where we knew we had to answer the question to the senators, okay, essentially, house managers, you’ve proved him guilty [sic] (emphasis mine), does he really need to be removed after all? we have an election in nine months....

    The Organic Prepper ^ | 12 March | Daisy Luther
    Yesterday the World Health Organization officially declared Covid-19 a pandemic (like we didn’t already know this.) As well, President Trump addressed the nation, closing American borders to all flights from Europe and announcing some ways he intends to help the people of the United States financially. In unofficial terms, this is sh#t getting real. Things are going to get worse – possibly much worse – before they get better. Illness completely aside, this will cause financial problems that many folks will feel for years after the pandemic is over. The biggest question people are asking now is, “When?” When will...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in an interview Tuesday, suggesting that even if the billionaire candidate were to win the presidency in November, he would pave the way for "a worse Trump." "Obviously, we have to beat Trump, but if we beat Trump and go back to the same policies that we had before, a worse Trump is going to come. A Trump that’s more sophisticated, whose fascism is less obvious, is going to come, and things could get even worse," Ocasio-Cortez, a prominent campaign surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), said during...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he won’t promise to serve just one presidential term because of his advanced age but pledged that he would not seek a second if he loses “energy and mental acuity.” “Look, I guarantee you this: if anything changed in my health making incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, I give you my word I would not run again,” Biden, 77, told a CNN town hall. “It’s totally legitimate for y’all to ask about my age or anybody else’s age up...

    On May 31, 2002, 18-year-old Brenden Flynn was involved in an auto accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was med-flighted to a hospital in Syracuse, New York. Shortly thereafter, he was transferred to Park Ridge Hospital near Rochester, where doctors notified his mother, MaryJo Flynn, that Brenden had a zero chance of recovery or having any meaningful “quality of life.” They suggested ending his life. If Brenden were to survive, his doctors said, he would be in a nursing home for the rest of his life. Brenden’s mother, not wanting to make the decision to end her son’s...

    Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is “really proud” of the incoming class of Congressional “members.” She is just super-pumped about the future of women in the elective bodies. And why shouldn’t she be? Aside from cussing like sailors, rave-worthy high school dance skills, and members who failed geography in school, one who married her brother and evidently neither lived through the Jimmy Carter malaise nor ever read anything about it in what has passed for public education since then, she’s got some real gems to deal with. Not to be out done the newly elected Senator from Arizona is...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proven, once again, how out of touch she is with the average American. On Friday evening, she said there wouldn't be a border wall. But the real kicker? She seems to think that a wall along our southern border isn't a political issue but rather a morality issue.“We’re not doing a wall. Does anybody have any doubt about that? We are not doing a wall. So that’s that,” she said. “It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with: The wall is an immorality between countries. It’s an old way of thinking [and]...

    “Another question from a student. Shelly Ward, a senior studying journalism and media studies. Shelly, what’s your question?” MSNBC host Joy Reid stated. “Congratulations on the election,” Ward said before asking, “Do you support the Black Lives Matter movement?” “Well, I support the recognition that black lives matter, for sure. And I have incorporated that in many of my statements. I think all lives matter, yes,” Pelosi responded. “But there has — we really have to redress past grievances in terms of how we have addressed the African-American community.

  • John Bolton unveils new Africa strategy based on "America First" principles

    12/20/2018 11:10:47 PM PST · by aquila48 · 27 replies
    Ambassador John Bolton, the President's national security adviser, unveiled the strategy in remarks delivered at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. "Under our new Africa strategy, we will target U.S. funding toward key countries and particular strategic objectives," Bolton said. "We will make certain that all aid to the region—whether for security, humanitarian, or development needs—advances U.S. interests," Bolton said. Currently, the U.S. sends more than $8 billion annually to African countries, though Bolton, citing a "longstanding pattern of aid without effect," indicated that amount may soon be slashed. "Unfortunately, billions upon billions of U.S. taxpayer...

    The showbiz left, secure in their swanky California and Manhattan digs, can’t honestly be expected to care much about border security. But, the most strident voices have chosen recently to outright denigrate it, too assured of their inherent goodness and cosmopolitan virtue signaling. Here are some Twitter highlights: Kathy Griffin, who when not holding a bloody model of President Trump’s head is known to sell Christmas ornaments that read “F*** Trump,” shouted her love for Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz and his opposition to the wall: Ron Perlman, the muscly guy who played Hellboy in the first and second installments of...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who's about to become the youngest Congresswoman ever this January, is taking some time for self-care. The Congresswoman-elect took to her Instagram stories on Monday to let her followers known she'd be starting a week of self-care, though she admitted she doesn't really know how to do that or what it entails. After describing some of the self-care tips she's heard in the past (drink wine and watch Netflix, go to Cancun), she showed a photo of Amnesty International's signs for burning out, writing, "Self-care is important for activists because without we WILL burn out and walk away."...
  • Pedophilia Isn’t The Main Problem With Catholic Priests, Homosexuality Is

    The editorial board of the New York Times declared it had identified the source of “The Catholic Church’s Unholy Stain.” It names pedophilia and asks: “How have so many pedophiles been allowed into the priesthood?” The question was purely rhetorical because the board had an answer ready. It cited the usual grounds: “the all-male priesthood and the celibacy imposed on Catholic priests; the elitism, careerism and clericalism of the church hierarchy; the lack of transparency or accountability among bishops.” Most damning is “the power a man of God has over a child.” Every parent knows instinctively that sexual abuse of...
