Ocasio-Cortez Slapped With Fine For Bad Behavior

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been a congresswoman for one week, and already she is screwing up majorly. Now, we have learned that she’s been slapped with a fine for her bad behavior. What an embarrassment this woman is.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a very bad week. It all started over the weekend, when she was bested in a Twitter debate with Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana. Scalise was debating tax policy with the Socialist congresswoman on Saturday when two of her supporters tweeted, “snipe his ass,” and, “kick his cane.”

“Hi @AOC. Happy to continue this debate on the Floor of the People’s House, but it’s clearly not productive to engage here with some of your radical followers. #StayClassy,” Rep. Scalise tweeted in response.

Of course, if Ocasio-Cortez and her radical supporters had anything of substance to add to the debate, they wouldn’t have to resort to making threats. But, this is a favorite page from the Democratic playbook. When they’ve been bested in a debate, you can count on the fact that they will scream “racism” or other names in order to destroy the credibility of their opponent.

As if this weren’t bad enough, there was only more embarrassment in store for Ocasio-Cortez as the week unfolded. Following President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night address from the Oval Office, the newly sworn-in congresswoman went on television to trash his stance on border security. She was promptly humiliated, however, after a little fact from her past was exposed.

Ocasio-Cortez sat down with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and demanded that Trump explain why American taxpayers are still funding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which she accused of committing “human rights” abuses. What she failed to mention, however, was the fact that she had voted to continue funding ICE just one week earlier.

That leads us to today. With the week finally coming to a close, Ocasio-Cortez managed one last mistake. According to The Daily Caller, her congressional campaign has now been fined by the state of New York for failing to provide the proper workers’ compensation coverage to campaign staffers.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018 to April 30, 2018,” explained Melissa Stewart, the spokeswoman for New York’s Workers Compensation Board. “[It] was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid. This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”

This, of course, is quite problematic for Ocasio-Cortez, who has been portraying herself as a champion for workers’ rights. During her campaign, she advocated for a $15-an-hour minimum wage and a Federal Jobs Guarantee because according to her website, “anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment.”

One Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that “it’s not a great look” for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers’ compensation coverage. “This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers,” said the source, as reported by Daily News.

“Hypocrisy at its finest,” remarked state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud. “The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable.”

Indeed, it seems that wherever Ocasio-Cortez goes, the hypocrisy is sure to be found. She accuses ICE of committing “human rights” abuses, yet she votes to fund ICE. She portrays herself as a champion for workers’ rights, yet does not even carry the basic workers’ compensation coverage so that her own campaign workers will be protected. She’s a real piece of work.

Still, however, the mainstream media loves her, trotting her out on television on a daily basis to discuss topics she clearly does not understand. It is truly mind-boggling that this woman is a United States lawmaker.

Omar, Tlaib, And AOC Are Destroying The Democrat Party According To Crucial New Report

Published

on

By

The so-called ‘Democratic socialist’ wing of the Donkey Party is so toxic with voters in critical swing states that it’s becoming extremely difficult to win them next year, according to a new internal party poll.

As reported by Axios, the survey discovered that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) are not the popular little socialist firebrands their outsized media love would indicate:

Ocasio-Cortez is recognized by 74 percent of voters, yet has an approval rating of 22 percent

Omar is recognized by 53 percent of voters and has an approval rating of just 9 percent

Voters understand what socialism is, and 69 percent of them view it unfavorably, while just 18 percent view it favorably

Capitalism, meanwhile, is viewed favorably by 56 percent of respondents, and negatively by 32 percent

The unpopularity is so bad, in fact, that Democrats’ chances of retaining control of the House, let alone defeating POTUS Donald Trump, are dim.

“If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk,” a top Democratic source told Axios. “[S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.”

“Socialism is toxic to these voters,” the source added.

Axios says the survey is important because it shows that “Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency.”

Cortez and Omar — along with Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) form the socialist-leaning “Squad” that has become House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) worst nightmare.

Their outsized attention and following is beginning to define who Democrats are, to the detriment of the entire party.

The “Squad”- what a joke.

God Bless.

Jeb Bush Breaks Silence On Generosity The Trump’s Showed The Bush Family

Published

on

By

The Bush family had a choice – go the John McCain route and have every speaker bash Trump in public or they could put politics aside and celebrate the life of a great man.

They chose the latter and that made all the difference in the world. They invited Trump and then refused to let anyone bash Trump, in fact, they demanded every speaker show the proper respect for the office that George H.W. Bush held so dear.

The Trump’s for their part returned the kindness many times over going above and beyond the call of duty to help the Bush family.

From The Daily Wire: Both the Trump and the Bush families have been all class in the wake of the 41st president’s passing. On top of refusing to pull a McCain by inviting President Trump to the funeral, the Bushes have only expressed kind words regarding the current president.

On Tuesday, while speaking before the WSJ CEO Council, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, thanked both Donald and Melania Trump for their graciousness throughout this process, adding that President Trump “couldn’t have been nicer” when he called to pay his respects.

None of that means, however, that Jeb Bush and President Trump’s differences have been resolved. In the same talk, Jeb spoke about his father’s famous call for a “kinder, gentler America” and how that needs to come back.

“Politically it’s not winning,” Mr. Bush said of his father’s style. “But that’s not to say we shouldn’t restore it.”

 Jeb Bush hoped that his father’s death would not be “an end of an era.” Later, he spoke of the optimism he has that such an era will return.

“A whole lot of people focused on solving problems, and they know that with civility and kindness and compassion and generosity of spirit you can do far more than pushing people down and making yourself look better,” he said. “I’m much more optimistic because I don’t come here often.”

As to why President Trump would not be giving the eulogy at his father’s funeral, the former Florida governor said that it was a matter of circumstance, being that his brother is a former president.

“What people want to talk about is, Well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’ It’s because we have a unique circumstance here my brother was president,” he said. “I’m sorry. First dibs.”

Laura Bush echoed Jeb’s words earlier when she thanked Melania Trump for her kindness.

From The Hill: Former first lady Laura Bush on Tuesday afternoon thanked first lady Melania Trump for a “sweet visit” to the White House.

Melania Trump led 20 members of the Bush family on a tour through the White House on Tuesday, a White House source told CNN. She reportedly gave them holiday cookies and arranged for them to meet with residence staff members.

 Laura Bush posted an Instagram photo of the family with some residence staff members Tuesday.

“A sweet visit during this somber week,” the former first lady captioned in the Instagram post.

“Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff.”

Trey Gowdy Lands New High Profile Media Job And He Deserves It

Published

on

By

Trey Gowdy just landed a new high-profile gig and he deserves it. Trey took to social media to make the announcement that he will be moving to Fox News as a contributor.

This is a good move on many levels – Trey is known as a straight shooter who is not afraid of the hard truths and that is needed more than ever in our political landscape.

The left will be trashing Trey and Fox News when they hear the news, but this is standard procedure for media companies to hire ex-Congressmen.

Trey will moonlight for Fox and will keep his day job at his old law firm in South Carolina.

Trey tweeted out: “Appreciative to Fox News for the chance to weigh in on legal/political issues. Sure to be a lot of both in 2019. Practicing law with Nelson Mullins, contributing where appropriate with Fox, and living in South Carolina. Looking forward to a great year,” Gowdy wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday.

From The Hill: Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

Gowdy, who retired from Congress earlier this month, will offer political and legal analysis on Fox News and the Fox Business Network, the outlet said in a press release.

The former four-term congressman representing South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District served as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during his final two years in office.

From Deadline:

Among his appointments during Gowdy’s eight years representing South Carolina’s 4th District, he chaired the House Select Committee on the Benghazi attack and played a key role in Congress’ probe into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Libya. He also got plenty of screen time — including many shouted mild expletives — during last year’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.

Gowdy’s hiring follows that of retired Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona joining CBS News on Tuesday; NBC bringing on ex-Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri); and CNN signing as contributors former Ohio Gov. and 2016 GOP presidential candidate John Kasich — who also inked with CAA this month — Andrew Gillum, who ran for Florida governor last year; and ex-Reps. Mia Love (R-Utah) and Luis Guiterrez (D-Illinois). McCaskill and Love fell victim to midterm elections in November.
