AOC backtracks on world ending in 12 years says WWII comments were dry humor sarcasm

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked Republicans for taking her too literally. She said she invoked “dry humor + sarcasm” when she claimed the the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.

She went so far as to say people taking her literally “have the social intelligence of a sea sponge” and we’re like Dwight from The Office.

But up until this point, she gave no indication in any of the many times she invoked the claim that she was being humorous or sarcastic. In one of her interviews regarding this claim, she seemed deadly serious about, saying:

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: This world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it? This is the war – this is our World War II.”

If there’s dry humor or sarcasm in this statement, then I must be a sea sponge because I’m not seeing it. In fact, I’ll go ahead and call BS. She was being serious. She was being literal. She was not making a joke, and I say this in her defense because if she really finds humor in WWII or invoking it as a rallying call for climate change, then her sense of humor is widely askew of the norm.

This has been her trademark claim. Presidential candidates have echoed her exact sentiment. If she was using dry humor and sarcasm on an issue she claims is so important, how can we take anything she says seriously? Answer: We can’t.

Steve Hilton: Democrats ‘are totally corrupted by foreign government lobbying and cash’

Steve Hilton Democrats are totally corrupted by foreign government lobbying and cash

Anyone American who’s been awake at any point over the last three years has heard of the Russia scandal. Following President Trump’s comments last week signaling a willingness to accept information from foreign governments, the Democrats were apoplectic. But as Steve Hilton noted on Fox News last night, the real scandal actually surrounds them.

Hilton called this segment, “The people versus Democrat hypocrites.” He cited known examples of foreign lobbyists from Mexico, Saudi Arabia, China, and even Russia paying the very Democrats who are beside themselves stirring up the media to attack the President’s comments. But in the battle of his words versus their actions, the hypocrisy is thick. Watching Democrats make accusations about foreign powers influencing him would be like watching Bill Cosby complain about how the President treats women.

It’s imperative for every patriotic American, whether Republican, Democrat, or Independent, to see through the lies being told by the swamp and disseminated through the mainstream media. Their hypocrisy is thick on multiple levels, which is why we encourage our readers to help us spread the truth by donating to our cause.

There truly is corruption in DC by foreign powers, but it’s not happening at the White House despite what the “news” outlets report. Foreign influence runs through Capitol Hill and the Democrats are their favorite targets.

More is never enough: AOC calls Amazon’s $15 per hour minimum wage ‘starvation wages’

More is never enough AOC calls Amazons 15 per hour minimum wage starvation wages

What is the limit to how high many Democratic Socialists like Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want the minimum wage to go? More. It doesn’t matter how high it is. They’ll always want it to be higher. Never mind the economic consequences of increased costs. Does anyone really care if her policies would shut down many if not most small businesses? What’s wrong with exponential inflation as a result of devaluing wages by forcing the lowest level employees to make as much or more than skilled employees?

It’s all just details to Democratic Socialists. They want to attack the rich and destroy the poor. At least that’s what their policies would do whether they’re willing to acknowledge it or not.

The latest victim of AOC’s wrath is an old foe: Amazon. She and other socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders have been going after Amazon for a while. The latest insult hurled by the freshman Congresswoman is also an old one, though with new wording. She accused the e-commerce giant of paying their employees “starvation wages.”

Here’s the problem. Amazon has a self-imposed minimum wage of $15, the number Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, and other Democrats have tossed out as the value they want for the national minimum wage. Amazon complied, but it wasn’t enough. In fact, they pay many of their workers higher and noted in a statement that they pay more as a starting point for employees in Staten Island near Ocasio-Cortez’s own congressional district.

“These allegations are absurd. Amazon associates receive industry-leading pay starting at $15 an hour – in fact, hourly associates at our Staten Island facility earn between $17.30 and $23 an hour, plus benefits which include comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance. On top of these benefits, Amazon pre-pays 95% of continuing education tuition costs through its Career Choice program for associates who want to pursue in-demand careers. For anyone who wants to know what it’s like to work in an Amazon fulfillment center, sign up for a tour today.”

That’s the thing with Democratic Socialists. Whatever demands anyone meets are yesterday’s demands. If they say they want $15 per hour and that gets delivered, they will not celebrate it as a victory for long. They’ll quickly turn around and demand $20 per hour. Why? Because more is never enough.

More is the starting point for Democratic Socialists. It’s also the middle; those who deliver on the demands of socialists will invariably be told the new demands are more. And more. And more.

Around three dozen people show up to hear Rashida Tlaib talk about impeaching Trump

Around three dozen people show up to hear Rashida Tlaib talk about impeaching Trump

Across the nation, the masses of people calling for impeachment of President Trump rivaled the protests in Hong Kong over the proposed extradition law. Hundreds of police officers in riot gear were forced to take to the streets in every major city as the passionate hordes of people calling for Trump’s impeachment threatened to tear the streets to shreds if they didn’t get their way.

At least, that’s what MoveOn.org hoped to see. Instead, the planned huge events were embarrassingly tiny.

MoveOn.org Held Nationwide ‘#ImpeachTrump’ Rallies Saturday. Not A Lot Of People Showed Up.

MoveOn partnered with around two dozen organizations on the event, including activist group, Indivisible, the national Women’s March, Democracy for America, and CREDO, and looped in celebrities like Chelsea Handler and members of the cast and crew of “Modern Family” to help promote the event. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who is leading the impeachment charge in the House of Represetatives, was among those legislators and high-profile guests invited to speak at the rallies.

But if their intent was to create the impression that hundreds of thousands of Americans stood at the ready to impeach President Donald Trump, the effort failed miserably. Across the country, turnout was sparse, even in dedicated leftist strongholds.

The Detroit event, which was supposed to be one of the biggest, had around three dozen people show up to hear Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) speak about impeaching the President. That didn’t stop one of the organizers from posting a picture on Twitter and calling it a nice turnout.

No, that’s not a nice turnout. That’s shamefully small for a rally that features a member of Congress at an event organized by such a powerful progressive organization.

The Washington Times reports that MoveOn.org expected massive turnout at 120 events in cities and towns throughout the country. They were assisted by around two dozen progressive organizations in putting the rallies together.

Meanwhile, mainstream media has been relatively quiet despite having film crews at many of the events that were supposed to be packed. They didn’t want to harm the narrative that Americans want the President impeached even though a majority clearly do not.

The MoveOn impeachment rallies were about as packed as a Beto O’Rourke speaking engagement in a small town coffee shop. The uprising progressives expected simply didn’t materialize. At least the weather was nice.
