(RepublicanWire.org) – Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York denied that government policies exacerbated inflation and instead blamed corporate greed while claiming Americans were in an “environment of fascism.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the claims while being interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes on his show. She was addressing how Democrats were failing in polls ahead of the midterm elections because of the weak economy.

“Even when we talk about issues like inflation. A lot of this has to do with the massive consolidation of our markets and corporate greed,” she claimed emphatically.

“Our inflation is not going up due to government policies, inflation is going up due to Wall Street decisions,” she angrily said.

Earlier in the interview, she also said America was facing “an environment of fascism” from Republican candidates running for Congress in the midterms in reference to some citizens, mostly on the right, ostensibly guarding voter ballot boxes from voter fraud.

“There is absolutely no doubt that the data shows that the vast majority of incidents of domestic terror come from white nationalism,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And that we are really truly facing an environment of fascism and in the United States of America,” she continued, “this type of intimidation at the polls brings us to Jim Crow, it bring us back and hearkens back to a very unique form of American apartheid that is not that long past ago. And we have never fully healed from it. And those wounds threaten to rip right back open if we do not strongly defend democracy in United States of America.”

Ocasio-Cortez was repeating a well-worn defense used by Democrats and others to try to defend President Joe Biden and his high-spending policies from those saying they made inflation worse. Polls show that Americans mostly blame Biden’s policies for inflation ahead of a key midterm election season.

Though current inflation levels were likely inevitable due to the Federal Reserve’s decade-long zero interest rate and quantitative easing policy following the 2008 recession, the creation of $5 trillion into the money supply out of thin air during COVID greatly exacerbated the inflation rate.

Though the Federal Reserve is incrementally raising interest rates, the government is still continuing to spend more than it takes in, especially as a result of the Biden regime constantly sending billions of dollars the U.S. doesn’t have to Ukraine.

(RepublicanWire.org) – New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got more than she bargained for at a recent town hall where she was confronted by furious constituents. The constituents hammered her for voting to send funds to Ukraine and, in their opinion, push the United States closer to nuclear war.

“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” one of the protesters said on Wednesday. “You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China. Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?”

“Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts where you’ve shown cowardice,” another protester said. “I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against.”

“I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against. That’s what you’ve become,” he said. “You are the establishment.”

The representative argued back but it is tough to hear in the video. But she did vote to send $40 billion in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine in May.

Being “war hawks” was one of the reasons that former Democrat Rep. Gabbard left the Democrat Party, but not the only one.

Gabbard, who has been critical of the party in recent times, has finally had enough of the “wokeness” and “warmongers” in the party, calling it an “elitist cabal.”

“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, are hostile to people of faith & spirituality, demonize the police & protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans, believe in open borders, weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, dragging us ever closer to nuclear war,” she said on Twitter while not elaborating on whether she would join another Party.

“I believe in a government that is of, by, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite,” the former representative said.

“I’m calling on my fellow common sense independent-minded Democrats to join me n leaving the Democratic Party. If you can no longer stomach the direction that so-called woke Democratic Party ideologues are taking our country, I invite you to join me,” she said.

It was a brutal statement that took down the entire Party and its leaders.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday morning for the congresswoman’s recent video about the “burdens of capitalism.”

“There are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people, under the burdens of capitalism, are not having kids. We’re not having kids at the same rate! We actually need immigrants to help balance things out,” explained the Congresswoman in a social media post on Wednesday.

Failla roasted AOC, calling her “a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve Congress.”

Failla said, “you’ve always got to qualify this through the lens of, AOC is a low-IQ TikToker who happens to serve in Congress. Okay, when she says we need immigration because of Social Security and funding, stuff like that. Yes. But the caveat there is we need legal immigration, because legal immigration is what contributes to Social Security and funds the systems. What they’re encouraging on the Democratic side of town is anything but legal immigration. But going one step further, young people aren’t having kids. Yes, they’re waiting longer. But also, your party is championing the idea of not having kids as a badge, abort them. They’re walking around like that’s a badge of honor now. We went from abortion is safe, legal and rare to like ‘I’m so proud it’s abortion Tuesday.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – A video has gone viral showing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., being harassed outside the U.S. Capitol by social media personality Alex Stein, who calls her “my favorite big booty Latina.”

In the video, which appears to have been shot by Stein, he is seen shouting out to Ocasio-Cortez as she walks by.

“I love you, AOC,” he said. “She wants to kill babies, but she’s still beautiful. You look very beautiful in that dress. You look very sexy. Look at that booty on AOC. That’s my favorite big booty Latina.”

Ocasio-Cortez later shared Stein’s video, calling it a “deeply disgusting incident.”

“I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today,” the Bronx Democratic socialist tweeted after the incident.

“It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad,” she added.

It wasn’t too long ago that AOC’s “principles” on the issue of protests were based on the following:

“The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable,” the proven liar tweeted in December 2020. “Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point.”

Some Twitter users, including former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis, mocked ‘AOC’ for complaining.

“This you?” Ellis asked.

And less than a week ago, she mocked concerns over the safety of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as protesters hounded him out of a D.C. restaurant.

“Poor guy,” she snarked. “I will never understand the pearl clutching over these protests.”

(RepublicanWire) – Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is angry with her party’s leaders. She shared her frustration after left-wing immigration attorney Jessica Cisneros failed to immediately defeat Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar in a heated primary.

Top Democrats, most notably Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Majority Whip James Clyburn, supported Cuellar’s campaign through robocalls and in-person events, while Ocasio-Cortez and Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Cisneros.

“Accountability isn’t partisan. This was an utter failure of leadership,” Ocasio-Cortez complained of leadership’s support for Cuellar.

“Congress should not be an incumbent protection racket and sadly it is treated as such by far too many. The fact is those who fail their communities deserve to lose. They don’t need rescuing from powerful leaders who state they fight for gun safety, the right to choose, and more,” she continued.

Cuellar has consistently been rated as one of the most conservative Democrat in the House of Representatives. Cuellar was the only member of his party to oppose a bill that would legalize abortion up to the moment of birth and eliminate conscience protections for healthcare providers. He has spoken out against the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis, and has an A rating from the National Rifle Association.

Cisneros on the other hand has received support from the left-wing Justice Democrats and NARAL Pro-Choice America. She also called for Congress to break up Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Cuellar has claimed that Cisneros’ left-wing record would allow Republicans more easily take the seat in November. Although he won re-election by 19 points in 2020, Joe Biden would have only defeated Donald Trump in the district by seven points.

Whoever wins the primary will face off against Cassy Garcia, a former staffer to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, in the general election.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that the U.S. Capitol riot last January was a “trial run” and that Congress could come under attack again if Republicans regain a majority.

“If we lose the House, this is no joke — January 6 was a trial run, and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that,” the New York Democrat said at a town hall in Queens on Wednesday.

“It was a trial run, and they’re going to come back if they win the House,” she continued. “The only reason it wasn’t worse is that Democrats had the House, and they didn’t have the votes.”

“If they take the House, then they have the votes not to authorize and legitimize the presidential election, whatever the results are. So this is very serious,” added Ocasio-Cortez.

The truth is AOC is trying to scare Democrats to go vote during the 2022 mid-term elections. Democrats know it isn’t looking good for their party. AOC’s newest claim is just desperate.

(RepublicanWire.org) – GOP Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office was among those responding on social media to NY Democrat’s pre-holiday visit

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to get an early start on New Year’s weekend Thursday, according to a report.

The New York Democrat was seen, maskless and drink in hand, as she dined outside in Miami Beach, Florida, the National Review reported. The congresswoman and a companion were spotted at Doraku Sushi and Izakaya, the report said.

The sighting quickly drew snarky reactions on social media.

“You’re being played by @AOC dummies,” one writer claimed, referring to the Democrat’s supporters.

“Hey @AOC tell me you endorse @RonDeSantisFL without telling me you endorse @RonDeSantisFL,” another commenter wrote, referring to Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has been known for coronavirus policies that contrast from many of those in Democrat-run states.

DeSantis’ office also responded on Twitter.

“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” the tweet said. “We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL’s leadership.”

“P.S. We recommend the Rock Shrimp Roll and the Aoki Tai the next time you decide to dine in Miami. Cheers!,” another tweet said.

Ocasio-Cortez’s pre-holiday trip came as her native New York City was dealing with a record number of first responders calling out sick heading into New Year’s Eve. More than 20% of the city’s police officers and 30% of paramedics were out sick Thursday, city officials said.

Meanwhile, incoming New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who will be sworn in Saturday, said Thursday that he plans to keep in place the current coronavirus restrictions of outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio, including a vaccination mandate for entering local businesses.

The state of New York also set a new record for coronavirus infections for the second day in a row, reporting more than 74,000 new cases Thursday, according to WNBC-TV of New York City.

Hospitalizations also continued to increase in the Empire State, reaching more than 7,300, the report said.

The number of ICU patients in New York rose to more than 1,000 on Thursday, breaking that mark for the first time since March, the station added.

In Washington, congressional Republicans were asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block President Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees, arguing that Biden and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) were exceeding their authority.

Fox News contacted representatives of Ocasio-Cortez about her Florida trip but received no immediate response to late-night messages.

It looks like the Democrats are not feeling optimistic about Joe Biden running for Reelection in 2024. In a recent poll, one out of three said that he should not run for president in 2024 and 31% want him replaced by Vice President Harris. But that’s not the worst news…Read until the end to see who they’ve just added to the list of potential candidates!

Biden has long said that he will run for re-election after his four years are up, but new rumors are  that he would only run in 2020 to defeat Trump and help usher in a replacement of establishment choice.

A recent survey revealed that 60% of Democrats want him to seek a second term while only 9% of Republicans feel the same way. Among GOP voters, 86% disagree with their party’s leader and say Biden shouldn’t get another four years in office as president; 31%-percent disagreed when asked how long they wanted this current administration to stay in power.

If Biden didn’t run, Vice President Kamala Harris is leading with 31%  saying they would want her on the ticket if not Biden in 2024.

Next on the list is Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg with 11%.

Followed up by Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who are tied for third place with 8% each.

AOC is a new entrant on this list and one that seems to baffle the mind. No idea what makes Democrats think she would make a good President. The Socialist AOC would destroy America as we know it, and everyone, including the Democrats would be worse off for it.

Biden still pretends he’s running in 2024, not sure how that’s possible since most of his party doesn’t want him to. We’ll soon see how this all shakes out.

(Republicanwire.org) – Walgreens has blasted a left-wing lawmaker after she tried to minimize the wave of organized thefts afflicting US retailers. The pharmacy chain says stores aren’t exaggerating – the problem is bad enough some stores have been forced to close.

On December 3, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed the organized pillaging of retailer stores like Walgreens complained about this year isn’t actually happening. She told the Washington Times the theft allegations, although cited by Walgreens in California, are not supported by data.

The response from Walgreens was rapid and furious – which probably isn’t a surprise. In November, the chain closed not one, but five, stores in San Francisco, CA, after theft became so serious it wiped out their profits. Walgreens says organized theft is one of the biggest challenges they’re facing, and they’re backed up by the Retail Industry Leaders Association, which said “the Congresswoman has no idea what she is talking about.” Multiple stores have released security camera footage of gangs clearing out shelves, confirming beyond a doubt the problem is real.

Other lawmakers also intervened. Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) called AOC’s statement “tone-deaf,” and an offense to the family of a security guard shot dead last week at the scene of a smash-and-grab robbery.

Not surprisingly, AOC’s office has not replied to requests for an explanation of her comments.

As first reported by the conservative Washington Examiner newspaper this morning, “As a member of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes a whopping $174,000 annually, meaning that she individually earns more than twice the average U.S. household’s income. Yet the progressive Democrat nonetheless thinks that working-class taxpayers should have to pay off her student loan debt.”

As one political pundit commented this morning when asked about what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is demanding, “They should put her picture in the dictionary next to the word “chutzpah.”

Still, believe it or not, it’s true. AOC, as she’s known, wants American taxpayers to pay off her $17,000 in student loan debt.

Here’s what happened.

While giving a speech on the floor of the United States House of Representatives about student loans and the impact student loan debt has on young Americans, and calling for “student debt cancellation,” AOC stated:

“I’m 32 years old now. I have over $17,000 in student loan debt, and I didn’t go to graduate school because I knew that getting another degree would drown me in debt that I would never be able to surpass. This is unacceptable.”

What do you think?  Should American taxpayers – meaning you – pay off the student loans of AOC – or anyone else – making $174,000 a year? Why or why not? Would you favor low-income Americans having some amount of their student debt forgiven? Why or why not?
