Ocasio-Cortez celebrates Amazon canceling
New York offices: ´Anything is possible´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Emily Birnbaum

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday celebrated Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City. "Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world," Ocasio-Cortez, one of the deal´s staunchest critics, wrote. (Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

Amazon cut and ran because they were afraid they might have to pay taxes in New York. The company paid $0 in taxes last year.

Amazon is the Leona Helmsley of Corporations. "Taxes are for little people."

AOC´s reaction reminds me of Winston Churchill´s famous commentary on socialism: "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

In her reaction, AOC definitely shows ignorance and envy, and this is a lost opportunity for local jobs that will lead to failure and misery . . .

A real representative would be happy about high-paying jobs coming to their district.

But Democrats depend on people who depend on government largess. Jobs threaten government dependence. And they are just about power and getting elected. Nothing else. No other principle is at stake.

When you know this, her position makes sense.

She clearly didn´t understand what the actual deal was. NY was going to let Amazon avoid about $3B in taxes as an incentive but they weren´t actually going to "pay" Amazon. There is no money to give to other people by not doing the deal. NY would take in additional taxes and real estate would appreciate because of the greater number of jobs and their secondary effects. Once the $3B incentive was reached Amazon would be paying taxes like everyone else. This is the kind of damage that occurs when people elect ignorant ideologues to positions of power.

Ocrazio has superstar immunity in a party that has zero economic sense. She has not incurred the wrath of John Podesta, the Corrado Soprano (Uncle Junior) of the Democrat party.

She embarrassed Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio. Discussions of a primary challenge or gerrymandering the upcoming redistricting to leave her without a district may gain traction.

Her New Green Deal is an embarrassment to NY Senator Schumer. He may be glad to aid Cuomo and de Blasio in taking her down.

The socialist democrats can´t allow denizens of the Plantation to enjoy any improvements to their conditions. Like jobs, higher income, better quality of life. Nope, socialist ideology is the important thing, and they can´t keep them on the plantation once they experience a better life.

What would AOC do without corporations to dress her in her expensive clothing, to feed her haute cuisine, to house her in luxury?

From another site:

Amazon.com Inc.’s decision to drop its expansion plans in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens plunged local real estate brokers into despair – just months after the euphoria that followed the company’s announcement that it would open offices there and bring thousands of jobs. But not just despair. Also anger.

"I think those local politicians, their careers are over," said Eric Benaim, chief executive officer of Modern Spaces, a Long Island City brokerage, who distributed pins and posters supporting the Amazon deal. "They’re responsible for losing 25,000 jobs."

In a way Alexandria has a point when she says that most of the new Amazon jobs will not ultimately go to people who are current New York residents. As based on recent history, it is fairly certain that Amazon will bring a flood of temporary workers from India, who they can then hire at a lower wage then they would have to pay American workers to fill a lot of those new jobs in New York.

Everyone has a plan until you get punched in the mouth.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has reignited the debate over the Electoral College — she wants to get rid of it, naturally. I say “reignited” because this is a very old argument. But I’m going to skip rehashing the usual — and to my mind, persuasive — arguments in favor of the Electoral College. Arguments against it tend to boil down to two gripes: It’s very old-fashioned, and it’s undemocratic. In 2016, the last time we had this kerfuffle, “Handbook of Electoral System Choice” author Josep Colomer wrote in The Washington Post: “The US electoral college is a medieval relic

For decades, Catherine Leach has never accepted the official explanation about who was behind the series of killings in Atlanta that terrorized the city and left her teenage son dead. Her 13-year-old son, Curtis Walker, was one of 29 mostly black children who were killed from 1979 to 1981 in a spate of crimes that became known as the Atlanta child murders. During those tense three years, children vanished, only to have their bodies turn up days later, with many of them having been strangled. The killings haunted Atlanta and brought grief to families, but also festered racial suspicions.

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity.

DENVER -- Former Colorado governor and presidential candidate John Hickenlooper needed to have a big moment during his nationally televised town hall on CNN. He accomplished that. But it´s perhaps not the kind of attention he wanted. (Tweet) When asked by CNN´s Dana Bash if he would select a woman to be on the ticket, he replied: "Of course." But then he pivoted, perhaps awkwardly, to say, "How come we aren´t asking the women, ´Would you be willing to put a man on the ticket?´" Bash quickly replied, "When we get to that point, I´ll ask you that question."

Fifty-one percent (51%) are opposed, but 22% are undecided. (Snip) The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on March 17-18, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error

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.

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

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.

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...

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery. The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational
