The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

The real reason Ocasio-Cortez is afraid of the press

For at least the second time, reporters were barred from covering an event featuring Socialist Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The campaign’s reason: we want attendees to feel comfortable since there’s so much national press covering her.

This is an absolutely ridiculous excuse, of course. Nobody goes to a campaign event without knowing the press will (should) be there. It doesn’t make them less comfortable and may actually give some a sense of security knowing the answers to their questions will be judged by more than the audience at hand. That’s one of the reasons for the press in the first place, to give information about an event to people who cannot attend.

Instead, the press is getting another roadblock:

Ocasio-Cortez bans press from covering campaign event

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/17/ocasio-cortez-bans-press-from-covering-campaign-event.htmlAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist star running for New York’s 14th congressional district, is facing criticism after her campaign banned journalists from covering a town hall meeting with voters this week.

The Queens Chronicle, a local news outlet, reported that the campaign for the 28-year-old progressive prevented reporters from attending a campaign event in Corona on Sunday, even though it was open to the rest of the public. The campaign reportedly barred reporters from a prior event as well.

It’s conspicuous that a local publication was barred because it runs contrary to the narrative the campaign is trying to sell. So why is she being hidden from reporters at these types of events?

My Take

It’s clear that her exposure is her best friend and worst enemy. Being talked about is a politician’s best friend on the campaign trail, but it also offers a risk of failure. This is most common in events like the town hall meetings she is holding because she’ll be forced to think on her feet.

What if she can’t think on her feet? What if her answers when placed in an unscripted situation the type of answers many would expect from an inexperienced socialist?

Until she’s ready to handle the pressure of having press cover these events, she won’t be ready to hold public office at this level. The House of Representatives isn’t for people who need to be protected from their own answers.

Shocking videos highlight heinous violence in Ilhan Omar’s Minneapolis district

Shocking videos highlight heinous violence in Ilhan Omars Minneapolis district

Murders, rapes, assaults, and other violent crimes have skyrocketed in Minneapolis over the last year. Robberies alone are up over 53% year-over-year, but the real picture is more disturbing than statistics can show. Recent videos demonstrate a severeness in the violence being perpetrated. The criminals running the streets in Minneapolis aren’t just robbing people. They’re beating them senseless and humiliating them in ways that go beyond the simple motive of theft.

One of those videos is making its rounds on social media today. Warning: This brutal assault is difficult to watch:

Meanwhile, their representative in Washington DC, Ilhan Omar, is busy trying to crackdown on ICE, CBP, and other law enforcement agencies. In case you think that’s a misstatement, the freshman Democratic Congresswoman isn’t trying to crack down crime or criminals. She’s trying to crackdown on law enforcement to prevent them from doing their jobs, in some cases calling for entire law enforcement agencies to be abolished. These are the types of policies that lead to the rise in violence her district is seeing today.

But it’s not her fault. She’s a Congresswoman, and it would be disingenuous to try to pin these problems on her. The point isn’t to blame her but instead to blame the far-left policies that resonate through cities like Minneapolis. To seek blame, we need to look at leadership in the city itself, namely Mayor Jacob Frey and the city council. Frey is a progressive Democrat. All but one of the 13 city council members are Democrats with the lone exception being a radical progressive Green Party member.

These are the people to blame for rampant, heinous crimes that continue to put the people of Minneapolis at risk. To stay in power, they bow to the criminals by hampering police, reforming their justice system, and deflecting their problems by claiming the opposition is racist for wanting to bring an end to crime.

Is it possible for Minneapolis citizens to demand better conditions that allow them to walk the downtown streets unscathed? As long as they keep electing radical progressives to lead the city, any such demands will fall on deaf ears.

Elizabeth Heng’s video draws irrational response from AOC

Elizabeth Hengs video draws irrational response from AOC

Elizabeth Heng is a Republican. She made that clear in a video her PAC ran during last night’s Democratic debate. It drew heavy criticism from the left as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s picture was burned in the beginning of the video to reveal death and misery from Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge genocide, of which Heng’s father almost fell victim.

Meanwhile, many on the right are cheering the bold statement against socialism, which Ocasio-Cortez unabashedly supports. “This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” the video begins just before the image of Ocasio-Cortez burns away.

ABC drew fire for airing the ad, but Democrats should be thankful they did. If it had been censored, chances are it would have been given even more attention than it already has. But instead of sitting back and letting her tribe defend her, AOC decided to chime in with an irrational response that will highlight the video even further.

When all you have is a hammer, everything becomes a nail. For AOC, all she has is the race card, so of course she accuses this video of somehow appealing to… white supremacists?

No, @AOC, this is not a love letter to white supremacists. It’s a warning to all Americans that the unhinged tenets of the socialism you promote would lead to death and destruction if you’re ever given the power to bring it to America.

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

America’s mainstream media is following around the major presidential candidates like ducklings chasing after their mothers. They cover every move they make, word they speak, and hand they shake. But there are times when the media goes silent and selectively omits an activity from being reported. Such was the case for those covering Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, who spoke at the ISNA Convention two weeks ago.

Oh, you didn’t hear about that one? It’s because the ISNA Convention included a who’s-who list of known jihadists, anti-Semites, and people who call for the death of all homosexuals. That’s not the kind of event the mainstream media likes to publicize for their puppetmasters.

Bernie Sanders Attends ISNA Convention With Islamists Who Backed Killing Gay People

When ISNA, an Islamic group accused of supporting terrorists, announced a presidential forum for ISNACON 2019, the expectations were low. The Islamic Society of North America had been created by Muslim Brotherhood members and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas Holy Land Foundation trial.

And even if the 2020 Democrats were willing to overlook the minor matter of murdering Jews, which they usually are, Muzammil Siddiqi, ISNA’s former president who chairs its Fiqh Council, which dispenses Islamic sharia law, has assented to the death penalty for homosexuality.

At the 2019 ISNA convention, Siddiqi spoke on “Strengthening Our Connection with Allah.”

Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing, was there at an Imam Round Table. Wahhaj has repeatedly endorsed violence against non-Muslims. That wouldn’t bother Democrats, but Wahhaj has also declared that “masculine women” are “cursed”, claimed that the “feminist movement” is headed by “lesbians” and then offered a reminder of Islam’s LGBT position.

“And you know, brothers and sisters, you know what the punishment is, if a man is found with another man? The Prophet Mohammad said the one who does it and the one to whom it is done to, kill them both,” Imam Wahhaj said.

Democrats who want to win the nomination need the Muslim vote. But many of the thought-leaders in Muslim communities promote an agenda that is antithetical to the Democrats’ stance, particularly as it pertains to the LGBTQ community. It’s for this reason we do not see reports of these activities in the mainstream media. They’d rather take an extended coffee break or bash on President Trump while major Democratic candidates speak to Islamists.

The symbiotic relationship between the Democratic Party and radical is not based on shared values, only a shared enemy. Both want Trump and as many Republicans as possible out of Washington DC in 2020.
