Don’t get me wrong. I mean that firebrand from the Bronx- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- who managed to win an election in a district so Democratic even Mr.Ed could win does look kind of hot in that unearthed dancing video from a few months back. That being said, today the Congresscritter has the teeth of Mr. Ed, the eyes of Adam Schiff, and the intellectual capacity of a mentally challenged child (apologies to mentally challenged children). And the past week has solidified in the minds of anyone with an ounce of operational gray matter that this dingbat is certifiable bats*** crazy.
First, we find out that Ms. AOC wants to impose a 90% tax on millionaires, yet cannot seem to pay her own taxes. After graduating from Boston University, an institution that should bow its head in shame for conferring a degree to her, she fancied herself an entrepreneur and founded Brook Avenue Press which was dedicated to writing children’s books in the Bronx. Someone forgot to tell her that companies pay taxes and she, in fact, still owes the IRS almost $1,900 in unpaid taxes. She also received a government grant at the time for her business which was essentially dedicated to glorifying life in the hell hole of the Bronx to children even though her own family had the sense to escape the area along with a young AOC. By the way, we found that AOC’s mother had escaped New York itself and the reason is…get this… to get away from the high taxes. This whole story sounds like the woman who embraces lesbianism because of bad experiences with boys. In AOC’s case, she embraces socialism because of a bad experience with capitalism. It is much easier to fantasize about doing things with other people’s money rather than becoming a success in business. That pretty much summarizes socialism and explains her attraction to it.
So what is a tax scofflaw to do? Well, if you’re a Democrat named AOC, you run for Congress. And if you’re a socialist one from the Bronx you put that degree in economics to work by setting up a private slush fund involving campaign contributions and other such shenanigans. First, she obtained an official House e-mail address for her boyfriend Riley Roberts by falsely identifying him as a staff member. Her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, dismissed the insinuations of impropriety by stating Roberts was a paid staff member, meaning AOC learned the fine art of sorta nepotism real quick. The Daily Caller explains a possible second ethics violation: “The second complaint was filed by The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) Thursday and alleges Ocasio-Cortez’s political Instagram account contains direct links to her House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside posts of official video footage on the House floor.”
They also explain a third possible campaign finance violation against AOC:
National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a conservative government watchdog, accused Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti Tuesday of illegally funneling money between political action committees (PACs) and private companies that were both controlled by Chakrabarti. NLPC claims the transfers from the PACs to the LLCs were part of an “extensive” plan to avoid reporting campaign expenditures to the FEC…both Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff obtained majority control over the Justice Democrats PAC in 2017, despite the fact that the PAC was credited with being the central force behind her primary victory.
She never disclosed her control over the PAC, leaving open the possibility that they could face serious criminal charges if it is found that they intentionally withheld the ties from the FEC.
More on this in a minute, because…
AOC had to jet to San Antonio to attend the annual SXSW festival where she wowed the audience by labeling Ronald Reagan a racist because of the use of the phrase “welfare queen.” Apparently, the racism charge enters the discussion because people like AOC see race behind everything and automatically assumes that because Reagan used the term, it refers to blacks pnly as if there are no white welfare queens. She also managed to equate her rise in the ranks of the Democratic Party to the civil rights efforts of Martin Luther King while also giving us a lecture in economics:
“Capitalism is an ideology of capital — the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit…To me, capitalism is irredeemable…Just as there’s all this fear mongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government.
Wow! Capitalism is an ideology of capital. And this darling of the Left has a degree in economics.
While in Austin, AOC managed to capture a picture of herself with noted climatologist Bill Nye, the science guy. Of course, she is the biggest proponent of the Green New Deal which has visions of meatless diets, high speed rail replacing air travel, non-farting cows and people not having children (the latter being OK with this writer if one of those people not having kids is AOC). It is interesting to note that Ms. AOC arrived at the speaking event in a gas-guzzling SUV and that one of her aids is seen getting out of the car violating a cardinal rule of the environmentally virtuous: he was holding and allegedly drinking from a plastic water bottle.
Speaking of which, she managed to piss of environmentalists, including the founder of Greenpeace, organized labor and her party’s leadership with this Green New Deal. You see, all three entities want to institute socialism piecemeal, incrementally, and slowly so that us rubes won’t realize it until it is too late. AOC and her POC posse are giving away the plan with their demand for immediate action because, after all, the earth is going to explode into a fireball in twelve years.
Returning to Washington, this mentally deficient woman beclowned herself in a hearing by surprising the CEO of Wells-Fargo, in a hearing about banking consumer abuse tactics, of somehow being responsible for caging children at the border. She also accused him of helping finance the leaking of oil from a nonexistent pipeline. She was referring to the Keystone XL pipeline which did not leak because it has not been built yet. Wells-Fargo is one of 19 financial institutions that deals with TransCanada.
She also went on the attack claiming President Trump refuses to divert money for the opioid crisis, instead preferring to divert money for a border wall. She, naturally, used Twitter. Except this Tweet bought her three Pinocchio’s from the Washington Post. Why? Because Congress had already allocated funds for the opioid crisis in 2017 equivalent to $6 billion. In other words, there was no need to transfer funds because funds had already been allocated.
Staying with Twitter and getting back to that FEC complaint, she then sent out this tweet:
Whoah: the creepy org filing bogus ethics complaints against me just *actually* got hit with one of the biggest fines in FEC history
Instead of correcting the inaccuracy (the right to Rise PAC has nothing to do with the complaints against her), she claimed that former Right to Rise operative Luke Thompson was the target of the fine (he wasn’t) and that Right to Rise was behind the complaints (they aren’t) and that Thompson works for the groups behind the complaints (he doesn’t). Thompson is the one who revealed that her boyfriend has a House email account.
Then along came Nancy Palsi, titular head of the House Democrats, to dismiss impeachment possibilities against President Trump. Within hours, AOC went to reporters to tell them that despite what Palsi says, impeachment will never be off the table. This, in turn, brought a stern rebuke from Steny Hoyer who reminded the world that more than three new Democrats were elected in 2018, a reference to the triumvirate of AOC, Omar and Tlaib- otherwise known as the three pain in the asses of the Democrats in the House.
The week ended when Venezuelan president Juan Guaido, whose citizens are now obtaining water from polluted rivers and rummaging through trash bins for food scraps, invited the witless AOC to the socialist paradise Venezuela has become under Maduro and Chavez. Unless invited by Maduro himself, one doubts this out to lunch horse toothed darling of the Left will be jumping on the next nonexistent high speed train to Caracas.
The saddest part of this whole story? People actually voted for this buffoon moron which may be justification for establishing basic literacy before casting a ballot. The fact is, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, although a quick learner in the ways of DC sleaze, is a better dancer than she’ll ever be a Congresswoman.
