Is AOC a puppet prototype to drive hyper-leftism in DC for the Justice Democrats?

Published

on

A new report gives extremely compelling evidence that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is at the very least a figurehead of a hyper-leftist organization and at worst a pawn of the rising forces of radical progressivism attempting to make the fundamental changes Democrats made in the past look like moderate’s making incremental adjustments to the status quo.

I’ll admit, I sat on this story for a week. The allegations are so outrageous, I needed to do my own investigating to make sure it wasn’t a wacky conspiracy theory. After looking deeper into the belly of the beast, I can confirm that the beast is real and at play in the Democratic Party today. By my reckoning, AOC is one of the prototypes of the pieces used in an admittedly brilliant plan to subvert not only conservative and moderate principles in American politics, but the very fabric of what allows America to operate as a free nation.

Near the center of the beast are the Justice Democrats, their current leaders Alexandra Rojas and Nasim Thompson, and their behind-the-scenes ringleaders Saikat Chakrabarti and Cenk Uygur.  At the center is a greater force that I’ll discuss later. For now, let’s look at the scenario surrounding this true conspiracy (as opposed to being a conspiracy theory; this is acknowledged by the players involved), the people we know are involved, the people behind the scenes, and what this all means for America.

Justice Democrats sought out superstars

The core of this conspiracy began with a simple idea. Uygur, Chakrabarti, and others were unhappy with the moderate direction the Democratic Party had seemed to settle into following the 2016 presidential election. They knew a third party such as the Green Party simply wasn’t able to gain enough steam to break through the two-party system, so they decided to infiltrate and take over the Democratic Party instead.

Their tactics were uncanny. They saw with Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) failed run that pulling from even the far left of the established Democratic Party wasn’t going to work, so they chose to start fresh. They needed to field candidates they could control. This likely came from watching the Tea Party work so hard to elect “conservatives” like Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) only to watch them abandon their conservatism quickly once in office. The Justice Democrats didn’t just want to get people they liked into office in Washington DC. They wanted to get people they could completely control.

This required doing what was essentially a casting call. They received 10,000 nominations, from which they found a bartender from the Bronx who was smart enough to handle their talking points, naive enough to buy into their radical progressive mentality, and ambitious enough to let them completely control her actions and words. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was their perfect candidate.

The public puppeteers

Let’s look at the four people currently and previously in charge of the Justice Democrats. You can do your own Wikipedia biographical searches. I’m going to focus on what impressions I get from these people.

  • Alexandra Rojas – Executive Director of Justice Democrats. Rojas seems to be a true believer in the socialist movement, one who thinks the environment is going to kill all life on earth in the near future unless we ride bicycles and stop eating beef immediately. She may be more dangerous than I’m seeing, but my initial feeling is she’s the charismatic placeholder for smarter people to call the shots later.
  • Nasim Thompson – Congress Repealer at Justice Democrats. Thompson is another true believer. If Rojas is tasked with finding and driving candidates, Thompson is the one who takes down the Democratic targets in primaries.
  • Cenk Uygur – Young Turks Host. This whole thing was partially his creation. Unfortunately for Uygur, he just wasn’t woke enough to stay on publicly. Of course, he may still be involved behind the scenes.
  • Saikat Chakrabarti – Chief of Staff for AOC. Chakrabarti was there from the beginning. He’s a true hyper-leftist and not a very good guy. Now, he’s the one directly pulling AOC’s strings. It’s his and his staff who actually control the seat, feed her talking points, and put forth the questions and answers we see from her.

Notably, none of these people seem capable of mounting a serious threat to the Democratic Establishment. All of them have skills that are useful for the cause, but even in a larger group they seem to be smart and motivated yet not the real power driving this. Do these puppetmasters have a puppetmaster?

Pulling the real strings

This is where we insert the latest accusations about George Soros or any of the other hyper-leftist boogeymen. That may be the case, but as a student of the Bible I can say this all seems conspicuously controlled from outside our realm of understanding. Is this an example of the powers detailed in Ephesians 6:12 flexing their muscles?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I find it very hard to believe the merry band of Justice Democrats are so successful, having won seven congressional seats a year after their formation, unless there’s something stronger driving them that we’re not seeing.

What this all means for America

If you thought Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi were dangerous, you’ve never met the Justice Democrats. These folks make the Green Party seem mainstream. The difference is they’re clearly much more effective than any radical progressive movement we’ve seen in most of our lifetimes.

What this means for America is very simple. They must be stopped. They must be countered. Now more than ever, I understand why we need the American Conservative Movement to step forth.

The saddest part about AOC is that she’s such a distraction, her real power isn’t in what she does on Capitol Hill. By taking attention away from the Justice Democrats, she’s pulling double duty for the most dangerous organization in America.

18th century firearm technology, 21st century lies

18th century firearm technology 21st century lies

Repeating and semiautomatic firearms existed long before the recent phenomena of school shootings

One of the Liberty Grabber Left’s favorite lies is to claim that repeating or semiautomatic firearms are the cause of mass murder tragedies because they only recently came into existence. Hence the line ‘21st Century laws for 21st Century weapons’ line of Bovine excreta parroted by the Marx for our lives Astroturf effort.

This is a continuation of our ‘Conversation’ on guns in honor of Gun Pride Month and AR-15 Appreciation Week. In the usual circumstances, this ‘conversation’ consists of accusations of collective guilt of more than 120 million innocent gun owners with a lecture that we should be glad to give up more of our Liberty. All of this is predicated on outright lies such as that previously referenced.

The problem for gun confiscation brigades is that – as is typical – this often repeated lie fails to match up with reality. We’ve already proven that there were many ‘assault weapons’ technologies that existed long before the 21st Century and Long before the writing of the US Constitution.

Firearm technologies didn’t start in the 21st Century.

Perhaps Leftists fail to realize that weapons technology has always been on the cutting edge [pardon the pun]. They also fail to realize that small arms are usually mass-produced, very durable and extremely valuable antiques. This means that many examples of these weapons in reside in museum and other collections with patent numbers and other indicia that prove their lineage.

This means that there are many examples of these Pre-Constitutional Assault weapons as well as patents and other forms of documentation that eviscerated the ‘They only had single shot muskets at the time of the Constitution’ lie from the Liberty Grabber Left. The fact that many of these technologies existed long before the time of the founding fathers destroys that mythology.

The ‘Cambrian explosion’ in assault weapons technology of the 19th Century.

The development of self-contained cartridge ammunition changed the world with the assault weapons of the 1800s. Cartridge ammunition combined the essential elements of propellant, projectile and primer [ignition] into one unit, that could be easily loaded into the breech of a gun. From that point on, it was just a matter of working a lever or bolt to load and fire a cartridge. Thus it was this point in time mid 19th Century that someone could quickly load and fire a number of rounds.

This innovation also vastly improved the revolver, repeating firearm technology that had already been around for centuries, resulting in the famed ‘six-shooter’ seen in every western. Easily loaded and carried, a couple of these guns could have made for a deadly mass shooting during the early 1800’s.

The fact is these early ‘Assault Weapons’ were around 170 years ago and over a century before the school shooting phenomena. Proving the point that these mass murder tragedies were not caused by the presence of repeating firearms.

The 19th Century development of semi-automatic technologies.

Later on in the same century, it was discovered that the excess chemical energy from the combustion of the propellant in a cartridge could be used to unlock the bolt, eject a spent casing and load a fresh round. This semi-automatic process made it far easier to use a firearm, with the working skills built into the weapon. This is why these are in common use, and wildly popular with the more than 120 million gun owners in the country. It is also the reason these very reliable and easy to use firearms are the prime target of the Liberty Grabbers.

The Borchardt C-93 was the first commercially viable semi-automatic firearm produced in 1893. For those counting up the Leftist Lies, this still wasn’t the 21st Century. Please take note that these are the types of weapons used in school shootings and were on the scene 70 years before these became a phenomena. Not to belabor the point, but this also proves that guns aren’t a factor in recent occurrence of these tragic events.

Other weapons and mechanism were developed at this time to the point that the technology was relatively mature at the turn of the Century [This would be the 20th Century – still not the 21st Century]. To the point that any miscreant of recent times could have replicated one of their crimes over 100 years ago – but did not.

The steep rise in school shooting in the 1980’s and 1990’s

Dennis Prager recently discussed this issue in a “Fireside chat” and a column: Why So Many Mass Shootings? Ask The Right Questions And You Might Find Out.

America had plenty of guns when its mass murder rate was much lower. Grant Duwe, a Ph.D. in criminology and director of research and evaluation at the Minnesota Department of Corrections, gathered data going back 100 years in his 2007 book, “Mass Murder in the United States: A History.”

In the 20th century, every decade before the 1970s had fewer than 10 mass public shootings. In the 1950s, for example, there was one mass shooting. And then a steep rise began. In the 1960s, there were six mass shootings. In the 1970s, the number rose to 13. In the 1980s, the number increased 2 1/2 times, to 32. And it rose again in the 1990s, to 42. As for this century, The New York Times reported in 2014 that, according to the FBI, “Mass shootings have risen drastically in the past half-dozen years.”

[Emphasis added]

The Takeaway

Repeating and semiautomatic firearms have been around for Centuries, mass shootings are only a recent phenomena of the past 40 years. A phenomena that has been on the decrease as of late: Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be.

Guns aren’t the problem, they have been around for over 500 years. If they were the problem, why didn’t these take place 300, 200, or 100 years ago? It wasn’t the sudden appearance of guns at the onset of these tragedies soon after the sixties, then what was it? In his column, Dennis Prager had some thoughts. We will explore that issue in a later column.

A trillion dollar deficit is much more dangerous than the GOP acknowledges

A trillion dollar deficit is much more dangerous than the GOP acknowledges

Spending. It’s the thing that helped me make my decision to leave the GOP a few years ago as there seemed to be very little difference between them and the Democrats when it came to fiscal responsibility. Where we spend the money is the only big deviation, but both sides of the political aisle have an addiction to spend more than the country has available. In the past, this was dangerous because of the crushing force of national debt that will eventually bring about an economic collapse. Today, the risk is much, much greater and within immediate striking distance.

What a trillion-dollar budget deficit represents today is an avenue through which Modern Monetary Theory could actually be realized in the United States. Those who are familiar with MMT may still be as complacent about it as I was a year ago; “It’ll never happen, not in America.” But as Democrats push Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, open borders, state-funded education, reparations, and outright socialism, there’s only one conclusion that any economist or political pundit can come to: If the new thinking of the Democratic Party gets a foothold and initiates some of their plans, then MMT is the only possible way to make it happen.

They don’t even need to initiate all of them. Just one or two will be enough for catastrophe.

In other words, they’re policy proposals are already writing checks the U.S. can’t cash, so every scenario in which a partial implementation of these policies takes place can only happen through MMT. For those who don’t want to read up on it, MMT is essentially the practice of printing the cash to pay the bills. Proponents say it will be different this time from every other failed attempt at MMT because America is responsible enough and too crucial to the world economy for it to cause hyperinflation. Reading the delusional excuses for promoting MMT reveals an uncanny ability to deny reality while simultaneously suppressing common sense. It’s the type of thing that only progressive economic scholars can truly comprehend, and that should terrify you.

By moving the budget deficit into the ten-digit arena, we’ve broken a threshold that gives MMT legs. Whether it’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying, “You just pay for it,” or Elizabeth Warren constantly saying the rich will be taxed until it’s paid for despite the basic arithmetic that demonstrates this is impossible, they’ll all latch onto the notion that if we can spend a trillion dollars in one year that we don’t have, why can’t we spend two? Ten? Fifty?

On one hand, I want to do whatever it takes to convince Republicans they need to do what they campaign to do: cut spending. It’s not as easy as just pulling the plug on frivolous programs, services, agencies, and whole departments… except that it truly is that easy. It’s not popular. Some say it’s political suicide. But considering it’s never been tried in the modern era (no real cuts have been made to spending in decades), now is the time to be bold and do what’s right for the nation. The rise of the internet in general and social media in particular gives conservatives an outlet through which they can educate the masses about the need to make cuts. It’s something we plan on doing as part of the American Conservative Movement.

But on the other hand, one thing that can’t happen in trying to convince Republicans they’re doing it wrong by allowing them to lose. The Democrats are now more than the lesser of two evils. They’re dangerous. The plans they will implement are existential threats to America. Sadly, many of them know this. The Justice Democrats, who are driving the leftward lurch within the Democratic Party, are shockingly aware of what they’re trying to accomplish. Destroying and rebuilding America in their image is the end goal. That image is not a pretty one, even to the Justice Democrats, but things are rarely pretty when radicals get their hands on it.

Modern Monetary Theory will be implemented if the Democrats get full control. Unfortunately, Republicans aren’t helping fight it as long as they’re pushing such untenable budget deficits. It’s time for a heavy dose of fiscal conservatism.

Why conservatives shouldn’t support ‘Ag-Gag’ laws

Why conservatives shouldnt support Ag-Gag laws

For the most part, conservatism is black and white, especially when compared to progressive ideologies that dwell in contradictions and allow activists to make a living telling lies. But there are circumstances that demand a deeper examination and possibly a little soul-searching to help decide which conservative stance should prevail. One example of this is with “Ag-Gag” laws that attempt to prevent undercover filming of animal mistreatment on farms.

There have been so many undercover investigations at farms that it’s becoming hard to be shocked by what goes on at some of them. The mistreatment of animals at some farms is unambiguous; we’re not talking about poor facilities or crowded cages. We’re talking about physically harming animals while they’re alive and feeling pain. In some cases, the pain is clearly intense as some farm workers seem to get a thrill out of it.

Ag-Gag laws make it illegal for people to sneak onto farms with the intention of filming animal cruelty. Many Republicans support these laws because they help the agricultural and livestock industries that have had rough times over recent decades. Some justify it by claiming it’s easy to find abuses in any industry, and piecing together weeks or even months of footage of abuse to make ten minute videos intended to shut a farm down is unfair.

This is a case in which a conservative-backed industry has appealed to conservative lawmakers for protection against a generally progressive activism topic, fighting animal cruelty. It would seem on the surface that Ag-Gag laws are, therefore, conservative. They’re not. They’re an attack on the 1st Amendment, not to mention a preventative measure designed to stop crimes from being exposed.

Should we support American farms, their owners, and their employees? Yes. But that support does not give conservatives license to suppress a part of the 1st Amendment or to ignore crimes like animal cruelty. We must take the high road whenever it’s presented, and in this case that high road means siding with progressive activists to prevent farms and their workers from committing these crimes.

This video from John Stossel shows both sides of the Ag-Gag debate. In the end, he rightly concludes that subverting part of the 1st Amendment and enabling animal cruelty is inexcusable, even in support of the farming industry.
