AOC ain’t A-OK
Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/10/2019 5:10:32 AM

What would Dr. John Silber make of BU alumna Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The longtime president of Boston University would not be impressed, I dare say, with the semiliterate millennial who has gone in months from sticky-fingered Manhattan bartender to the intellectual prophet of the Democratic Party. Which just goes to show you how much the party has changed since Silber was its nominee for governor in 1990. During that campaign, he used to wonder, aloud, why so many illegal immigrants from “tropical climes” were moving to Lawrence. As if he didn’t know.

The $180,000 gal is trying to tell everyone how to think and act. I tend to wonder if she thinks she is some god. Just because her campaign district fell for her line, I hope taxpayers are waking up to what Democrats want from us. They want it all. Maybe Alexandria should donate $80,000 of her congressional salary to what she is asking of everyone else.

Where can taxpayers go to rein in these outrageous congressional salaries?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Hyphen, got elected with 15,000 votes, and we should listen to her because....?

And the Hyphen is a media darling because...? A bright shiny object to distract?

If illegal gimmigrants keep flooding past our wall-less southern border, thoughtful Americans will soon be outnumbered and a commie moron like AOC can be elected in the U.S.

Add voter fraud by the democrats or the republicans who don´t vote because the GOP isn´t perfect enough and you have a recipe for New Venezuela.

Safe bet that BU as well as most universities in US are desperately seeking AOC as their May commencement speaker. And that the graduating classss of these schools will give her numerous standing ovations for her leftist idiocy. And, that she will be given numerous honorary degrees by these schools for her fight to save the planet by eliminating all of the advances that allow people to exist on it.

AOC is the poster child for the millions of Americans who dutifully carry their own bags to grocery stores, who demand “organic and sustainable”, who shun glutens and antibiotics, who drive Prius with Hillary and Obama stickers and who believe that they must require others to behave just like them.

#3 You are right on the money about AOC being a distraction, and it becomes more apparent every day. It´s a whole movement of Send In The Clowns, and to a great degree too many of us (objecting Americans) have laughed and viewed it as an amusing deterioration of the anti American Democrat party, when in fact she is the diversion while the real haters are behind the curtain reloading.

Howie failed to mention that BU granted an earned Ph.D. to Martin Luther King, Jr., despite his obviously plagiarized doctoral dissertation.
When the King Center announced that King´s doctoral dissertation was, without a doubt, plagiarized, BU did not revoke his Ph.D., as is otherwise standard practice.
Instead, they said, well, he is a black preacher, and black preachers have a tradition of ´borrowing´ other black preachers´ sermons. (As a matter of fact, the I Have A Dream speech was ´borrowed´ from another black preacher. That fact came out when the King Family tried to copyright it after MLK´s death. The King family is, shall we say, unusually fixated on money?)
BU added that MLK Jr. ´was really busy at the time he was writing his dissertation.´
So, we should not be surprised that BU granted a degree to Senorita Big Teeth.

We ended up with AOC because the people that voted her in cannot think. They were never taught to think. They were taught Socialism is cool. They were taught Socialism will bring justice, help the suffering, and save the planet. Apparently nobody taught them the history of Socialist states where people lose their wealth and freedom, and if they complain, lose their lives.

There will likely be more AOCs in Congress as the current high school and college crowds start voting more.

I don´t laugh and the future of our Republic is at hand. AOC (make fun all you want) won an election because the old guard was asleep.
It´s here and making fun of the millennial youths is not wise. Universities are pumping out grads like AOC who will vote or run for office.
Pelosi will not win this or reign AOC in because Pelosi´s brain, what´s left of it, is leaking out of her ears and teeth are falling out. AOC will out last her. Don´t complain about her salary because the lazy lay about who had the seat prior made the same salary.
The green dreamers, ex-bartenders, cook line chefs, taxi drivers are on the march this is just the beginning.
When Howie Carr said BU is applauding there is a reason for it, mission accomplished.

AOC has hit the millenial lottery. She’s instantly famous, hanging with celebs, in the money and making a difference in social justice. All she had to do was out-promise a sleeping incumbent pol by reguritating the nonsense she heard in college. Her communist former professors must be feeling so proud and superior.

A mind-numbed millionaire idiot fashion model who scuttles about the world in a carbon-belching private jet has found a "hero" in alexi cowfart cortez.

Is everyone getting the picture here?

Sooner or later even the dumbest of dumb will get a whiff of this one. Even witchypoo is catching on.

One thing though and this is none of her doing; discussing Madam Flatulent´s targeted stupidity is pretty much as fatuous as she is so in that sense she truly is one of Lenin´s "useful idiots" (he didn´t say it but he´s stuck with it).

Joel Chandler Harris would call her a Tar-Baby and he´d be right.

There are bigger sewer-fish to fry.

Much bigger; like the organ grinders about to yank alexi´s chain. It´s important to remember this. alexi cowfart cortez is a diversion now, so be aware.

I do not agree with AOC in ANY way - her belief in government takeover of so much of our economy and the likely forced coercion of all of us to follow government demands. I also believe she is very dangerous to our republic where some of these wacky ideas would not, in normal times see the light of day. Putting these ideas into the public arena makes them more "acceptable" and sets the narrative in the upcoming presidential election, as candidates will be talking about it.

What I DO like about is that she is new, fresh, and proposing ideas. THAT IS WHAT THE HOUSE IS SUPPOSED TO BE!! New ideas brought to the forefront to be debated, considered, and (in this case), hopefully disposed. Without term limits the legislature does not have new ideas, and are limited by a lot of back room deals, "don´t rock the boat" attitude, accept the status quo, and so on. Conservatives can also elect someone to the house to propose new CONSERVATIVE legislation to get the right things done for our country. The house is supposed to be the brash-upstarts that challenge the status quo while the senate is supposed to the the "august" body to provide senior leadership be quell too crazy of initiatives from the house - which should definitely occur in this case.

We need new leadership in the house to propose a clearer conservative vision of the country to fix the emigration problem, border security, economy, budget deficit, and so on....not just settle on the tried and failed attempts of the past. I believe if we truly had term limits, new ideas could be forthcoming that could solve these issues vs. keeping people like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer, Mitch McConnel, and the like.

We need to stop defeating socialists in the legislature in quiet battles and start loudly campaigning to the people against the socialists. Most young people hear these leftist theories and figure that some evil politicians stopped them. They are never told the theories were defeated in the legislature because most everyone of the politicians that weren´t crazy knew they would not work - ever. They need to be taught what is wrong with socialism. This is what was so refreshing about Trumps SOTU is that at least he condemned socialism. But he did it as if everyone already knew it was bad.

The problem with socialism, marxism, communism, etc. Is they all ignore a characteristic of humans. Humans need motivation to work. You guarantee something to us and not require us to work for it and we WON´T work for it. And especially we will NOT work for the good of the state.

Many humans have a natural inclination to just lay around and make minimal effort. (I would if I could get away with it.) The laziest of us live in temperate areas because it requires no planning to avoid freezing to death or gathering food. And those that live like that are certainly not going to go out and work for the good of the state.

Do NOT underestimate this dangerous tool, folks. I can think of numerous "losers" throughout history who preyed on the emotions of sufficient followers to be put in power, and then allowed to implement their evil/off base ideas: Mussolini, Hitler, Lenin, etc. All appealed to the "we are victims and deserve more" emotions of their constituents, and they were put in power with a promise to "correct" those societal injustices.

This woman is scary, simply because she seems so out of it from a practical/logical standpoint. But make no mistake about it: she seems to have the charisma that is appealing to a lot of folks in this country, many of whom have grown up being brainwashed into believing that: (a) they are victims; (b) the United States is an evil nation and the cause of most of the misery in the world; and (3) other people shouldn´t be allowed to have more wealth, power, privileges than they have. Paying for it? Not a problem: the government will pay for it, on the backs of taxing the snot out of the "rich" (which anybody with any sense knows means the vast middle class, where the majority of the money in this country is).

She is rising up at the perfect time to take advantage of decades of indoctrination and misleading by our education system and the lame stream media: one can only hope that the self interests of the decrepit democrat leadership will temporarily squash her for being "too ambitious."

The World Resources Institute, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit devoted to curtailing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainable development, was one of several environmental advocacy groups that received letters from the House Natural Resources Committee in 2018 inquiring about their relationship with China´s government and the impact

A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington.

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

“The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let’s call the President’s tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%.” — Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), in a tweet, Feb. 11, 2019 Harris, who is running for president in 2020, attacked President Trump’s tax law after the Internal Revenue Service reported that preliminary data shows that the average tax refund check is down 8 percent ($170) this year compared with last year. Boy, talk about a non sequitur that turns out to be nonsensical and misleading.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to
