The Socialist That Could
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/8/2019 5:15:22 AM

The Republican Party has a secret weapon for 2020. It’s especially effective because it’s stealthy: The Democrats seem oblivious to its power. And the GOP needn’t lift a finger for it to work. All Republicans have to do is sit back and watch 29-year-old Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . . . exist. AOC, as she’s better known, today exists largely in front of the cameras. In a few months she’s gone from an unknown New York bartender to the democratic socialist darling of the left and its media hordes. Her megaphone is so loud

To a lot of unsuccessful people, socialism sounds good. Maybe what should be examined is why they are not successful in the first place. Interesting to see AOC take Markey under her wing. It’s going to be fun watching this play out!

She may be nuttier than squirrel droppings but she appeals to a large component of our population that is OK with be a ward of the state. Most of these types are of course the dregs of our society, folks with no will-power or drive to try to better themselves. They believe that if others have acquired more than they, it was done immorally and possibly illegally. Unfortunately these types also reproduce faster than field rats. It is a real danger.

Taco Barbie is a dangerous combination of Zippy O and Criminal Clinton. And white male Dems and that Rag-Head Tlaib lined up behind her, literally backing up her insane Green Socialism Forever proposal.

I used to call Barack Obama The Student Council President because he was good for nothing except boring the world to death with word salad speeches while accepting applause he didn´t deserve.

He´s been supplanted by AOC, whose hilarious combination of sanctimony and ignorance makes her sound like a 16 year old discussing the merits of having a school pep rally on Friday. Her answer on ´how to fund it´ was an especially bizarre brand of magical thinking in which there is an orchard of money-growing trees somewhere in the District.

The scary part is that seemingly educated persons can be mesmerized by all the media attention surrounding this brainless egomaniac.

If she gets her way, future generations of Americans will never know what it was like to live in Liberty and Freedom.

I think the Democrats in Congress will be the ones to take down AOC. They are all sitting in the Background, getting virtually no air time because she is always out there sucking up the Oxygen! Nancy and her Gang will take care of that in due process. AOC may think she is running things, but I would bet before the year is out, she will be shut down!

Socialism always sounds good on paper. Everone is taken care of and everyone is equal.

The reason that socialism always fails is that it fails to take into account human nature. If everyone gets the same stuff, why bother working hard and excelling. It fails to take into account that everyone wants something different. Socialism only works as a stepping stone to something better when economics and education advance to allow it. Countries that had bad absolute monarchies or dictators rarely make the transition successfully to a democratic style government.

Going from and advanced democratic government to socialism is a recipe for disaster.

The problem is that most who favor socialism have never read beyond the bumper stickers, nor do they realize thst most socialist governments remsin in power through propaganda, coersion and tyranny.

I saw a clip of her giving her green talking points. OMG! The girl is as stupid as her ideas. She kept stumbling over her words, backtracking, waving her arms around with those deer in the headlights eyes never really making any points that made sense. This is the NEW democrat darling? Quite frankly, I´m embarrassed for her. She´s completely out of her element, and the only thought running through my head is that she was the smart one of her group.

Socialists want to give away money but where are they going to get it from if no one works to pay taxes. It does not grow on trees. How is Nasty Nancy going to get to CA every weekend without a jet? How can Hollywood make their vile movies without planes and trucks to get them to their locations. Sandy really hasn´t thought this out very well. She is just a big mouth with a little brain.

If I were a graduate of Boston College (difficult to get into) I´d ask for my money back. This rich brat is reaping admiration from a media that is only one step above her thinking. I, too, saw her spew her green "dream" yesterday and it was embarrassing. I watched the people behind her and mostly men whose expressions made me laugh. They were looking at each other as she touted her nonsense and if they could, would have dragged her away from the mic. She didn´t make any sense at all. What a fake!

Occasional Cortex claims "greenness." And yet she wants to remodel or replace every building in America.

I have a "green" question for the likes Occasional Cortex: What the hell would we do with all the waste generated by such a project?

Landfills? Oh that´s a green solution! NOT! Recycling? Not everything can be recycled. And what could be recycled from such a project would generate so much material that it would take untold amounts of energy to process it. What´s green about that?

My questions are legitimate. And they lead me to conclude one thing: Occasional Cortex is an absolute idiot who cannot think past those bunny rabbit teeth (my apologies to bunnies everywhere).

My dog produces better ideas when he squats on the lawn than what comes out of Occasional Cortex when she speaks!

If you want to know what your college dollar is purchasing for the student you are sending to school, then she is a glaring example of the product. She is the perfect parrot for all of the stupidity that is forced into the minds of these young people. The humanities have become a vacuous wasteland of intellectual endeavors. It has evolved into an incestuous environment of mental midgets convinced that they are gods, rejecting the unique value of the individual´s life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. In the end you get a generation of AOCs.

Bad links, here and in Must Reads.

As I understand it, AOC won a democrat primary because ticked off constituents voted for her instead of the entrenched congressman with such a sense of entitlement that he didn´t even bother to show up to campaign, taking his seat and his voters for granted. In a "we´ll show you" moment of pique voters handed his seat to what was in effect the "ANYONE else" line on the ballot. Mistaking a political fluke for something else, AOC has now set off on her crackpot "free stuff for everyone" crusade. Ah youth!

My guess is there are already serious political folks in that district just itching for the opportunity to pick her off in 2020. I hope she saves as much of her congressional pay as she can. She´s going to need it when she is job hunting in 2021. Great fun in the meantime. Good dancer too.

I love having AOC around. She has the same beliefs that BO had without BO´s filters. BO KNEW he couldn´t talk like this without being seen as a fool and alienating a lot of Americans. However, it is a true representation of modern Socialism, something the Left has been pushing for but the dems have been masking their intent of doing.

AOC is now OUT THERE. The public can see what she wants to do. Even if some dems reject her goals, the public is going to see this intent as a part of the dem party and suspect that some dems that SAY they don´t support it actually do.

Someone said that if democrats actually told the truth about what their plans are they would never win another election. They can only win by lying. Well, AOC is telling the truth and I suspect that the prognosticator may have been correct.

No to all the people who espouse AOC´s demise by her own party. Cortez is going to outlast them all and the media love her. I´ll bet if she held a rally with her nonsense she would draw more people than Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton.
On a daily bases Nancy Pelosi is deteriorating before our very eyes. Her brains have leaked out of her ears. Cortes will out last her and others no matter how dumb a stupid she sounds. As for her NY district they probably love her and would vote for her again she´s going to have that seat for a long time unless someone more radical comes along if that´s possible.

I´ve said before, I think AOC has a Svengali, someone who is giving her the socialist plans which she spouts like a good student.

I will say she has the enthusiasm of a true believer, so whatever was taught in her "economics" and "foreign relations" classes, they did nothing to impart the true effects of capitalism and socialism on society, but maybe she chose the college for it´s reputation for indoctrination.

Some say she is stupid, but I think it is all a calculated act...but if we think she is stupid, her behind-the-scenes handler will be cementing "her" plan, and we won´t catch on until it is too late...

Like a frog in a pot of cold water.

He was “Big Newk” in every way. Don Newcombe, who died Tuesday at age 92, was the biggest guy on the field, as the 6-4, 225-pound pitching ace of the 1950’s “Boys of Summer” Dodgers in Brooklyn, who became the first of only two players in baseball history to win Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award honors – and was likewise a big man off it, as a pioneer in breaking down racial barriers in baseball and later as the game’s foremost spokesman on alcohol and drug abuse.

For the last two years, millions of Americans have come to view Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as a kind of national insurance policy. This assessment is now in need of revision. Rosenstein is the guy who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate whether Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 election a week after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As the president rages on Twitter, Rosenstein is seen as the avatar of what one anonymous administration called the “steady state” — the resistance to Trump from within.

El Paso’s Tigua Native American tribe suffered another major defeat this week in their quarter-century battle with Texas over casino-style gaming when a federal judge ruled that their bingo and machine games violated state law. U.S. District Judge Philip Martinez of El Paso issued a summary judgment on Thursday in favor of the state, which has gone to court multiple times over the past two decades in attempts to close the tribe’s popular Speaking Rock Casino. Martinez’s ruling relied heavily on past court decisions, including one

MILWAUKEE — Gregory Greiten was 17 years old when the priests organized the game. It was 1982 and he was on a retreat with his classmates from St. Lawrence, a Roman Catholic seminary for teenage boys training to become priests. Leaders asked each boy to rank which he would rather be: burned over 90 percent of his body, paraplegic, or gay. Each chose to be scorched or paralyzed. Not one uttered the word “gay.” They called the game the Game of Life. The lesson stuck. Seven years later, he climbed up into his seminary

Weiner has been transferred from Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass. where he served a bulk of his 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons records. The 54-year-old is now being supervised by the federal Residential Reentry Management, which has a field office in Sunset Park and operates multiples facilities, the records say.

Every Oscar Best Picture Winner, Ranked

Every year starting in late August and ending sometime around late February, Hollywood is consumed with winning an eight-and-a-half-pound gold trophy. Even in a world overrun with awards shows, the Oscars remain the grandest prize, and a Best Picture victory cements filmmakers and actors’ place in history. It also means that, for the rest of time, a lot of people will complain that your movie wasn’t that great and should have lost to some other movie they felt was eminently more deserving. It’s very easy to second-guess the Academy on its Best Picture picks, but while putting together

There were thousands of liquidators - workers who came here as part of the mammoth, dangerous clean-up operation following the 1986 explosion. The worst nuclear accident in history.

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/16/2019 7:53:36     Post Reply
The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office. The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting,which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy.

It’s fitting that William Barr’s confirmation as attorney general happened just as two powerful law-enforcement figures were trading accusations involving President Trump. Mr. Barr’s greatest challenge isn’t antitrust deals, immigration policy or even handling special counsel Robert Mueller. His overriding challenge is to reboot a Justice Department that has shredded its reputation and lost the confidence of Congress and the public. It’s hard to feel confident in law enforcement when a former deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, reveals

VATICAN CITY—Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, chief adviser to Pope Francis on protecting children from sexual abuse, called a meeting with top papal aides in 2017, concerned the Vatican wasn’t living up to its promise of “zero tolerance.” An appeals panel set up by the pope had reduced the punishments of a number of Catholic priests found guilty of abusing minors. In some cases, the panel canceled their dismissal from the priesthood and gave them short suspensions instead. “If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,” Cardinal O’Malley told Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin,

It is clear that the United States government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign. Figures throughout the Obama administration were using their power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to pols like Harry Reid and sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump. Many of those figures — from John Brennan to James Comey to Susan Rice — appear on television these days displaying the very anti-Trump bias that drove their official actions during the campaign. We’re told gravely that the Mueller and Congressional investigations aim to protect the people’s democracy

Forty years after his death, John Wayne’s views on race and homosexuality have suddenly sparked a firestorm of tweets from users who believe his comments are somehow representative of America as a whole in the Trump era.

At a news conference after a rally in Las Vegas, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told KLAS’s 8 News NOW that Trump administration officials “have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” if they think it is needed. Warren was asked about the CBS’s “60 Minutes” interview with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who claimed Justice Department officials discussed invoking the 25th Amendment. Warren said, “I’m not the one who hangs out in his office and who sees him everyday and sees how well or how poorly he able to manage from day to day with the decisions he

To prove that there´s a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning´s New Day, CNN´s John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. After displaying a photo of Trump at a Mar-a-Lago omelet bar, the trio engaged in this banter:JOHN AVLON: While ´emergency´ is not defined in this statute, the dictionary definition of emergency certainly doesn´t fit this. And this weekend, he´s at Mar-a-Lago at the omelet bar, also not exactly communicating urgency. CAMEROTA: Nothing

Citing abortion and stripping away 2nd Amendment rights, Fagan introduced the legislation on Monday, at the behest of doorbelling-for-democrats operation known as the Bus Project.Oregon Public Broadcasting reports: “It’s time to lower the voting age in Oregon and to give our young people a chance to participate in the ballot, about their decisions that affect their homes, their clean air, their future, their schools and as we’ve seen, their very lives,” Fagan said.

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

Now for the charming topics of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ed Markey, and the so-called “Green New Deal.” If ever there was a multi-pronged way to snatch Depression from the Jaws of prosperity, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez seems to have hit upon it. Ms. AOC has discovered that the planet is warming to an alarming degree. Never mind that she is in no sense a scientist. Never mind that many climatologists say that climate change is a hoax — and many say it’s not a hoax at all. Never mind that there are many different possible causes of climate change and that human activity

Conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp took aim at Republican lawmakers in the opening of her Saturday evening television show, slamming them for apparently abandoning their traditional “principles” in support of President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration regarding the United States’ border with Mexico. “Knock, knock Republicans, anybody home?” Cupp, who identifies as a Republican but has been a staunch critic of Trump, said. “Any Republicans in Washington have a problem with this? Remember conservatism? Limited government? You know, your principles?” she asked in frustration.

Failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton warned of “real national emergencies” that included “Americans dying for lack of health care,” despite Obamacare remaining in place. Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care. Clinton identified “real national emergencies” as: – Relentless gun violence

CBS journalist Lara Logan on Friday unleashed a blistering, uncensored attack on the extreme liberal bias polluting America´s news outlets. Logan derided the “horses**t” “propagandist” press that had no interest in fairness. Appearing on Mike Drop, the podcast of former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, the foreign affairs correspondent and occasional 60 Minutes reporter berated slanted coverage in a way rarely seen by those in the mainstream press: “We’ve become political activists in a sense. And some could argue, propagandists, right?”

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.

The “we reported the Jussie Smollett case responsibly” contention has been blasted to smithereens. Twitter accounts and headlines in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times reported as fact Jussie Smollett’s wildly implausible allegations, and many other journalists did so as well, not to mention the innumerable activists and celebrities who piled on. So, a question for all of the above. Why did you believe Jussie Smollett? Let’s try to catalogue the red flags. Had you ever heard of Jussie Smollett before the alleged January 29 attack? Do you think it likely
