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

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

Today’s cartoon could not be more perfect.

Do you remember GaryTrudeau depicted George W. Bush as a floating feather? Airhead Alexandria is now going to be depicted as a balloon . Just… Perfect.

A better question will be ´How many in her district pay income taxes´.? I doubt the number will rise to double digits.

"Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Really the Democratic Future?"

Gee, I hope so. An air-headed dead end.

I´d rather have the dem party be a dead end instead of the Country.

#1 I disagree. Labeling AOC with Palin´s name is a real insult to Sarah Palin. She is a class act, and Cortes is an idiot.

Every so often I check out Democratic Underground to read what the nuts are posting.

I just so happened to read them this morning, and they love, love, love her.. are expecting great things from her including the office of POTUS in the future.

Democrats have to play the numbers game to stay alive, otherwise, they have nothing of any real substance. It’s all smoke and mirrors with them.

She must be driving Pelosi and the other Democrat lifers nuts. She is sucking up all of the air around them. She is becoming the face of the Democrat party--to their dismay and the Republicans´ joy.

They´ll toss her in the dumpster just as soon as they find someone they like better.

Here a month ago all I saw was ´Beto´, ´Beto´ ´Beto´.
Now I don´t see him quoted at all.
I think he ´blew´ an interview, and his ´shine´ all evaporated.
Same thing will happen to this woman.

Trump’s Caddy Will Put You in a
Chokehold If You Criticize His Boss
Politico Magazine, by Rick Reilly    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/24/2019 5:54:26 AM     Post Reply
President Donald Trump’s two most loyal employees aren’t politicians or fixers or publicity flacks. They’re caddies. He has a regular outdoor caddy—a 60-something ex-Marine named A.J.—who loops for him faithfully at Trump National Golf Club Washington in Northern Virginia. And then he has a kind of indoor caddy—Dan Scavino, Trump’s social media director, and one of the very few staffers who’s remained in Trump’s orbit from the start of the campaign—who actually met Trump caddying for him when he was a teenager. In a way, A.J. and Scavino are the same guy. They’re both mostly unknown,

The Democrat Party and its persons and policies have been more than a bit off-plumb for decades. But only over the last couple of years have they been moonbat barking mad. (Affirmative action is a policy misdemeanor next to the felony fraud of reparations.) The current D lot makes the George McGoverns and Hubert Humphreys of yesteryear seem like measured statesmen and deep thinkers by comparison. There no longer appears to be an adult in that room. The reinforced platoon of Democrats who’ve announced their intention to run for president in 2020 include a scrum of foul balls,

College admissions scandal generated disgust
and outrage. But what exactly was the crime?
Los Angeles Times, by Joel Rubin & Matthew Ormseth    Original Article

The college admissions bribery case has left people fuming. Stories of wealthy, well-connected parents allegedly paying large bribes to buy their kids seats in top-tier universities or high scores on college admission exams have stoked disgust and angry calls for the accused to be punished. But prosecutors cannot bring a case on outrage alone. In filing criminal charges last week against 50 people alleged to have played roles in the wide-ranging scam, the U.S. attorney in Boston embarked on an ambitious and, in some regards, uncertain legal odyssey, legal experts said.

Brexit is, at bottom, about self-rule
Washington Examiner, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/24/2019 5:05:34 AM     Post Reply
Amid the shambolic fracas in the British government and Parliament over how and when Brexit should take place, it’s important to step back and remember the why. The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union is not ultimately about trade or regulations. It´s about something more fundamental: the natural right of people to form and control their government. At its core, Brexit is about democracy and self-rule. Britons wanted their government, parliament, and courts to once again be the final authorities in the land. The flow of power out of Britain and into Brussels isn’t some theoretical concern.

End of the Mueller affair
Power Line, by Scott Johnson    Original Article

Robert Mueller is closing up shop. He has delivered his report to Attorney General Barr. No more indictments will be secured by his office: CNN hardest hit. What have we learned? Paul comments cautiously here. I throw caution out the window to make these provisional observations and comments. Mueller has secured the indictment of 34 individuals (and three companies). A few of the individuals would have rolled merrily along but for their association with the Trump 2016 presidential campaign or their service in the Trump administration. The lion’s share of those indicted are Russians who are alleged

   

 

  


 
Imagining Trump’s America
Without Robert Mueller
Atlantic, by David A. Graham    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2019 12:11:42 PM     Post Reply
For nearly two years, the American public, and quite a few observers overseas, have hung on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s every word and action: each hire, each redaction, each revealing and yet opaque footnote in hundreds of filings. His fans have indulged in devotional candles and meme T-shirts. The document that Mueller delivered to Attorney General William Barr has been so eagerly awaited that its official name might as well be “The Highly Anticipated Mueller Report.” This must be uncomfortable for Mueller, who shuns publicity, doesn’t seem to have much taste for politics, and has maintained a silence

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are

Barbra Streisand says Michael Jackson’s

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.
