Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Really the Democratic Future?
City Journal, by Howard Husock    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/11/2019 5:32:34 AM     Post Reply
There is little doubt that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, representing parts of Queens and the Bronx, is being treated as a leader of a new Democratic swing to the left. Nor is there much doubt that the media-savvy upset winner in New York’s 14th congressional district combines personal charisma with a knack for policy packaging, as with her “Green New Deal.” But before she’s anointed as representative of a political trend, it’s worth looking closely at how many—or how few—votes she received compared with other members of Congress, including moderate Democrats, and what that says about a little-discussed aspect

Hiding Evidence: The Continuing Cover-Up
American Thinker, by Bryce Buchanan    Original Article

More information is supporting the theory that the current big Justice Department "investigations" are actually functioning as big cover-up operations. Robert Mueller´s team is effectively hiding key evidence related to serious crimes committed by government officials. Mueller has nearly complete control over what the public or any investigator can see. He has control over what witnesses can talk about. This means that the Huber and Horowitz investigations exist to make you think something is being investigated when it is not.

Beto O´Rourke and his magic border beans

Beto O’Rourke — or, as he was born, Robert Francis O’Rourke — tweeted out a video response to President Donald Trump’s border wall speech that in essence said this: There’s nothing to see here, folks. Go home to your families, eat and be merry. The borders are safe, safe, safe. And then he clapped his hands, spun three times and threw down some magic beans and voila, the borders were indeed safe. Just like that. Seriously, this is the guy the Democrats are mulling over for the White House in 2020? Well, with talk like this,



Mitt Romney, Commander

No surprise: Senator Mitt Romney does not like President Donald Trump, as he recently explained in The Washington Post. But what, one wonders, was the former GOP presidential candidate thinking two years ago when he supped with the man he now claims to deplore while seeking an appointment as secretary of state? Much of Romney’s complaint is over manners. Yes, the president is a boor. Most people, including many of Trump’s supporters, recognize that. Trump won not because of his etiquette but because of what he stood for—and against. Romney also defended The Blob, Washington’s bipartisan foreign policy establishment.

The new Fox Nation subscription service posted the documentary Black Eye: Dan Rather and the Birth of Fake News at 6:00 a.m. (Eastern) this morning. The documentary revisits the Rathergate scandal from its origin in the 2000 presidential campaign to the 2015 film Truth and slightly beyond. I have now watched the documentary and want to offer a few notes with my impressions on it for what they may be worth.(Snip)The documentary overlooks Dan Rather’s 2012 memoir Rather Outspoken to the same effect. Rather seethes with hatred for Republicans and conservatives. Despite his fake September 20, 2004 apology

Now that the nation has heard the President explain how he wants to address our immigration crisis, and we have all enjoyed the comic relief offered by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in lieu of a serious response, the media have launched a propaganda campaign they hope will pull the Democrats from the ditch they have driven into regarding “the wall.” But our friends in the Fourth Estate are approaching the project in a manner that merely highlights how divorced they are from the world beyond the Beltway. Their primary focus involves the heartrending human tragedy of … idle bureaucrats.

Romney 2020 touted by Nevada’s
Harry Reid, calling Trump ‘amoral’

Former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid is pushing for a Mitt Romney challenge to President Trump in 2020, saying Thursday that Trump has no conscience. “I’ve had dealings with the man,” Reid said of Trump. “I think he’s amoral. I don’t think he has a conscience.” Reid said he and Romney had differences in the past. But he said he likes Romney and thinks he’s “a moderate voice the Republicans need.” He also insisted that he had claimed Romney hadn’t paid “his fair share of taxes,” rather than no taxes and said he was glad he had raised the issue.



Media had no problem calling it a
border ´crisis´ in 2014 under Obama

Both Democrats and most news media are yelling as often as they can that there is no border "crisis," even though they spent the last year telling everyone there was and even though they had no problem explicitly calling it a "crisis" in 2014, when the situation was the exact same as it is now. "We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the borer that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all," then-President Barack Obama said in the Rose Garden in 2014.

No, this isn´t a new lunar rover you´re looking at, or a Star Wars creation. But Hyundai´s new walking car concept for CES is just about as otherworldly. Called the Elevate, this futuristic vehicle—which is entirely hypothetical at this point, mind you—has four wheels mounted on robotic legs that can move around in all sorts of different configurations to traverse essentially any terrain you can imagine. The legs, which have articulating hips, knees, and ankles, can be programmed to move in a variety of different ways. It starts off with stuff we´ve seen before—passive

MacKenzie Bezos holds all the
cards in $137B divorce with Jeff

The prospect of a scorched-earth divorce battle between Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos may drastically change the balance of power within Amazon. If the world’s richest soon-to-be-ex-couple can’t reach an amicable agreement, the question of how to divide the retail behemoth might be left to the discretion of a judge in Washington state, where the prevailing “community property” law is very different from the “equitable distribution” in places like New York. Under the latter, a judge has discretion to consider circumstances in determining how property acquired during the marriage is split. Here, judges can consider the desirability

The Democratic Party is running

Americans love a fighter. Even the adversarial media has to admit that President Trump is a champion pugilist. Since 2015, the old media oligarchy has been unsuccessfully trying to pin Donald Trump to the ground like Gulliver, but he contemptuously breaks every one of their slings and arrows. Their Lilliputian cords have failed to bind this political giant. When Trump says something, he means it. And does not back down. Most contemporary presidents have backed down under pressure from the news media which has set itself up as kind of Inquisition -- the new unholy office of secular inquisition!

Frances Bavier, the late actress who played the kind-hearted Aunt Bee on the TV classic, "The Andy Griffith Show," apparently felt a lot of appreciation for her local police force. When Bavier died in 1989 at age 86, her will specified that $100,000 go toward a trust fund for the police department in Siler City, N.C., the small town where she lived alone with her 14 cats in her later years, the News & Observer of Raleigh reported. It was considered a nice final gesture by a woman whom the locals say could sometimes be difficult

“Democratic socialist” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been fined by the State of New York for failing to carry workers’ compensation insurance for a month during her congressional campaign last year. The New York Daily News reported Thursday: “The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said. “This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries." Her spokesman said she had nothing to add.

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza says the establishment media and Democrats’ claim that illegal immigration is a “manufactured crisis” are kicking the graves of Americans who have been murdered by illegal aliens. Angel Mom Mendoza’s son, 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way down a highway in Mesa, Arizona. During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Mendoza said the claim that illegal immigration and the southern border is a “manufactured crisis” — first used by Sen.

Boston - The former chief executive of Insys Therapeutics Inc (INSY.O) pleaded guilty on Wednesday to participating in a nationwide scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe an addictive opioid medication and has agreed to become a government witness. Michael Babich, who resigned as the Arizona-based drugmaker’s CEO in 2015, pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston to conspiracy and mail fraud charges after entering into a cooperation deal with prosecutors. His plea comes less than three weeks before five former Insys executives and managers including John Kapoor, its onetime billionaire founder and former chairman, face trial after being charged with participating in

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has repeatedly said she will retire when she is no longer able to work “full steam” — a promise that could be put to the test this week — or soon after — with the 85-year-old justice sitting out oral arguments while recovering from cancer surgery. Ginsburg’s absence for the past three days and recent health issues have fueled speculation about her future on the high court. If Ginsburg steps down as one of the four liberal justices currently serving, President Trump will almost certainly appoint a conservative replacement, tilting the court further to the

Frankfort, KY - Already mired in three lawsuits over abortion restrictions, Kentucky lawmakers are ratcheting up the stakes with a new bill to ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. As a new legislative session opens, the measure appeared to be on a fast track in the Republican-dominated state Senate. The American Civil Liberties Union, the state´s adversary in the ongoing courthouse fights, warns the heartbeat bill would prohibit most abortions in Kentucky and would immediately trigger a legal challenge. "It´s blatantly unconstitutional," ACLU attorney Brigitte Amiri said Wednesday, a day after the measure

The image of a young woman’s legs soaking in the tub along with a vape pen was circulated on Reddit forums and eventually made its way to online news outlets. “For those out of the loop, Republicans began to circulate a fake nude photo of me,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter Wednesday night. “Completely disgusting behavior from Conservative outlets.” Although the image was labeled as Ocasio Cortez on Reddit, it was actually Anthony Weiner’s sext partner

AT&T said Thursday that it will stop selling its customers´ location data to third-party service providers after a report this week said the information was winding up in the wrong hands. The announcement follows sharp demands by federal lawmakers for an investigation into the alleged misuse of data, which came to light when Motherboard revealed a complex chain of unauthorized information sharing that ended with a bounty hunter successfully tracking down a reporter´s device. AT&T had already suspended its data-sharing agreements with a number of so-called "location aggregators" last year in light of a congressional

In the age of identity politics and increasing demands for diversity, especially on the left side of the political spectrum, can the Democrats nominate a male Caucasian for president in 2020? In a recent CNN poll of registered Democrats, the top three choices were all white men: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’Rourke. If the 2018 midterms are a guide to Democratic voter sentiment, however, this may not cut it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put it bluntly in her primary campaign slogan against former Rep. Joe Crowley. “It’s time,” she said, “for one of us.” “It’s hard to imagine

You´ve heard of "Movember," you´ve heard of "Dressember," but have you heard of "Januhairy"? According to People, the trendy new movement that encourages women to let their body hair grow unabated for over a month has become quite the "it thing" on social media. Started by Laura Jackson, a drama student at the University of Exeter in the U.K., the movement seeks to liberate women from the uncomfortable constraints of shaving. She originally began growing out her hair in preparation for a role, however a few weeks later she began to really appreciate her own body hair and decided to

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might want to confiscate someone’s selfie stick. CNN’s Jim Acosta was mocked across social media on Thursday for posting a video that was meant to downplay President Trump´s claims of a border crisis -- but ended up supporting his argument that border barriers improve security. “Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about,” Acosta said while reporting from the southern border. “But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger.”

WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal. Instead, the open downstate New York slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive. Suozzi will assume the committee seat of Rep. Joe Crowley, the Queens Democrat Ocasio-Cortez defeated last year in a stunning upset.
