Did Alexandria major in economics? Because after the NYC-Amazon debacle, it looks like she majored in Lunch. She actually celebrated the loss of 25,000 jobs in NYC. And suggested that the $3B in tax credits that NYC was planning to give to Amazon should be invested in her district. Could someone please explain to Alexandria that a future tax credit is not the same thing as a pile o’ cash? Via Free Beacon. MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” broke away from its daily grievances with President Donald Trump Friday to accuse Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) of economic illiteracy and helping reelect the president. For seven minutes Friday morning, the show’s hosts and guests worried that the self-proclaimed Democratic-socialist was flaunting her...

Two possible explanations for yesterday’s chyron disaster: The CNN/Democrat cheerleaders were overcome with joy at watching Nancy wielding that gavel again. Or maybe they were still drunk from New Year’s. Note from Tammy: This is especially relevant considering CNN mocks the slightest mistakes made on other networks when it comes to chyrons and when clips are used, etc. Everyone makes mistakes, and CNN might want to look into the own house before pointing the finger at others!

Just a guess, but you probably did not watch CNN’s coverage of NYC’s Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration. Well, you missed…nothing. Unless you wanted to see Don Lemon get drunk on live TV, for the third year in a row. Via BizPac Review. Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen joined CNN’s Anderson Cooper to co-host the Trump-hating network’s New Year’s Eve special. Instead of celebrating a fun night, Cohen wasted much of the evening whining that Times Square authorities had warned him not to use his umbrella, citing safety reasons. Cohen — who wore a hooded coat amid the drizzle — was furious that the Times Square Alliance repeatedly told him to get rid of his umbrella. Andy’s longtime friend, Anderson...

Wait, why is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeting this week? Wasn’t she “taking a break” for “self-care” because “yoga sessions” or “face mask”…or something ? HT Twitchy. And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall. $5.7 billion What if we instead added $5.7B in teacher pay?Or replacing water pipes?Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies?Or green jobs? But notice how no one’s asking the GOP how they’re paying for it. https://t.co/jXdm1w9bpy — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) December 21, 2018 Here’s the thing… umm… defending our borders is actually… like… a function of Federal government.

If Harris is telling the truth about “not knowing,” this bodes very poorly for someone who wants to be POTUS. Via Washington Examiner. When news broke that the California Department of Justice settled a $400,000 sexual harassment settlement involving one of her longtime staffers, Larry Wallace, Harris was supposedly stunned. The senator didn’t know that Wallace preyed on a female executive at the California Department of Justice while Harris was attorney general in 2016. The senator was similarly oblivious to the fact that Wallace was still a defendant in a lawsuit the next year when she decided to bring him to Washington to serve as a senior adviser. This would be more believable if this was an isolated incident of...

Looks like Democrat Socialist “Star” Ocasio-Cortez ‘Don’t Know Much About History,’ or how government works…or math, or… But apparently, you don’t need to understand any math when you can sit on the House Finance Committee. Via Twitchy. Celebrity Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blatantly misrepresented this Nation article on Pentagon waste in an effort to make her Medicare-for-all affordable seem affordable: Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion, Come on, This is embarrassing. https://t.co/ezdhqWQFyc — Brian Riedl (@Brian_Riedl) December 2, 2018 This is annoying because AOC is making a bad/self defeating argument for something I support. 1, "can't be audited because DOD is bad at accounting" is not the same...

Mika and Schmoe, er, Joe, “titans of journalism.” Yeah, no. Via CNS. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were quick to mock President Trump and Fox News after the midterms about the migrant caravan swarming to the U.S.-Mexico border, sarcastically remarking on Morning Joe that the story was overblown, had no legs, and was essentially an election stunt. However, there are 7,000-plus migrants now in Tijuana and Mexicali and more than 40 people attempted to breach a hole in the border fence yesterday and another 42 migrants were caught and arrested on U.S. soil…. It’s unlikely that MSNBC’s Mika and Joe will retract their doltish mockery of the caravan story. For the record, here is what these titans of journalism...

Well, now that a judge has ordered the Trump administration to reinstate Jimbo’s WH press pass, we can look forward to more of his “All About Me” narcissistic-nitwit acting-out, er, journalistic endeavors. Via Daily Caller. Members of the migrant caravan are currently trying to climb over the U.S.-Mexico border wall, despite CNN’s Jim Acosta’s claim that they would not “be doing that.” Last week during a testy exchange with President Donald Trump at a post-midterm press conference, Acosta debated the president on whether or not the migrant caravan is an “invasion.” The White House correspondent rejected the notion that members of the caravan would try to climb walls and fences to get into the United States as depicted in a...

Anyone who disagrees with her half-baked talking-points is insane? She sounds like a twelve-year-old. With apologies to twelve-year-olds, everywhere. Via Free Beacon. Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a new interview her party couldn’t compromise with the “insane people” on the right holding the country “hostage.” Asked by Vanity Fair how she intended to balance her desire for rapid, progressive change with the need in Washington to make deals, Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats too often compromise even before getting to the table. “When you’re dealing with these insane people holding the country hostage on the right, you can’t go in with your end point. You have to go in with a strong position,” she said. “If they’re trying to end...

Now we know that Obama and Raul Castro discussed “climate change” over dinner in Havana. And nothing on the topic of the Castro brothers’ brutal and repressive regime, their history of executing Cuban political opponents and their continued denial of basic rights for the Cuban people? They did, however, talk about the “rising oceans.” But wasn’t the election of Barack Hussein Obama supposed to be the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal ? Via American Mirror. Nancy Pelosi thinks the seriousness with which China and Cuba are supposedly tackling “climate change” is just great…. During a speech last week at the University of San Francisco during the Global Climate Summit...

“Fight Trump,” “Take out Trump” — A kids’ “civics lesson” from a Socialist. Via American Mirror. In Chicago, Democrats recruit the dead to vote. In New York, they recruit children. While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning in Queens today, she attempted to sway a group of kids to her cause. Out here in Corona, Queens with @JumaaneWilliams organizing the kids 💪🏽💜 pic.twitter.com/urFuwFXQ3W — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) September 1, 2018 Speaking to a handful of children with Lt. Governor candidate Jumaane Williams, Cortez put on the sell.

150 workers lost their jobs at The Coffee Shop in Manhattan due to skyrocketing rents…and the increased minimum wage. But for someone who thinks “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” she could probably not understand the connection between raising the minimum wage and job loss. But… Yay Socialism! Via Free Beacon. Socialist New York congressional hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lamented the closing of her former employer but glided over the fact that it was closing because of the minimum-wage hikes she supports… “The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors. I swung by today to say hi one last time and kid around with friends like old times,” she said on Monday. “I’m a normal, working...

This is the fourth candidate endorsed by Socialist “star” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to lose a primary. SAD! 🙂 Here she is in Hawaii, endorsing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing but soooo excited to pepper the crowd with her old, tired clichés, and to bash “American colonialism,” that she forgot to introduce him to the crowd: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got so excited at the end of her speech at the #fightforaloha rally that she almost forgot to introduce Kaniela Ing pic.twitter.com/D0sHb4b99w — Michelle Broder Van Dyke (@MBVD) August 10, 2018 Via American Mirror. Is an endorsement smooch from the socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually a kiss of electoral death?…. It turns out Cortez’s support did nothing for his chances, and in fact, it may have...

This is the new voice of the Democrat Party. Watch the video…and let that sink in. Via Free Beacon. Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday knocked a couple key members of her own party, Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Bob Menendez (N.J.), saying they don’t represent the “working-class champion.” She also wrongly identified Menendez as being from Florida before being corrected by her interviewer. The self-described democratic socialist took aim at Manchin and Menendez during an appearance on the podcast “Pod Save America,” which is hosted by former Obama administration staff members…. Since Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.) in the Democratic primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, she has become a thorn in the paw of...

NJ Senator Cory Booker needs an eye exam, ASAP. Or maybe he needs a better excuse for pandering to the Nutroots, er, Netroots Israel-hating crowd. Via NY Post. Memo to Sen. Cory Booker: Next time you’re caught committing a politically embarrassing faux pas, man up and own it instead of offering ridiculous excuses. The New Jersey Democrat was one of several presidential wannabes who trekked to New Orleans last weekend for the lefty Netroots Nation conference, where he delivered a predictably overwrought speech. He also posed for photos, including one where he held a sign reading: “From Palestine to Mexico. All the Walls Have Got to Go.” The US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, which coined that slogan, was quick to...
