Nolte: Pelosi Folding on Antisemitism Proves Ocasio-Cortez Really Is ‘The Boss’

Posted by M. C. on March 8, 2019

Ilhan Omar is impessive.

She speaks the truth about Israel’s influence in Washington, Congress’ kowtowing to Netanyahu, the Likud and criticism of god’s (Obama’s) policies. Let’s not forget her recent criticism of the scum known otherwise as Elliot Abrams.

Antisemitism is the new “He is a Hitler”. If you don’t fall in line, you are a fill-in-the-blank.

Occasional-Cortex as the de-facto leader of the democratic party. This is only the beginning.

How bad will it get?

She cited the “caging of kids” at the Mexican border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch — and argued that he wasn’t much different from President Trump

“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine.

“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said.

“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

HSINO… That is Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — our “House Speaker In Name Only,” an aging figurehead limping towards extinction.

Late last month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared herself “the boss” — and Thursday’s disgraceful House vote condemning All the Hates proved that sentiment 100 percent true.

Don’t be fooled by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MD); she is not “stepping on rakes” or “accidentally” revealing her antisemitism. This is a coordinated strategy on the part of her and her allies to legitimize antisemitism, to normalize bigoted stereotypes about money-grubbing and dual loyalties that go above and beyond honest criticism of Israel.

That’s the play here, that is what is at stake, and because she’s lost control of the House and her caucus to the Ocasio-Crazies, Pelosi is helpless to stop it.

In fact, Pelosi has become Ocasio-Crazy’s puppet, her mouthpiece… “I do not believe she understood the full weight of the words,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday to explain why she does not believe Omar should apologize or lose her consequential seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“I feel confident that her words were not based on any antisemitic attitude. But that she didn’t have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people where these words have a history and a cultural impact that might have been unknown to her,” the ventriloquist dummy added without blinking….

Party, Ethnicity, Immigration, and Our Politics – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 7, 2019


The relation between party affiliation and ethnicity depends upon many factors that can change over time. With that qualification borne in mind, the evidence provided below suggests that party affiliation and ethnicity are strongly related. (This result is not new.) Therefore, if immigration favors people of particular ethnicity, this is likely, other things equal, to tilt voting to a favored political party. Open borders will favor Hispanic, Latino and Asian groups. This will favor Democrats and a more socialist and authoritarian government.

Wiki has a “List of Hispanic and Latino Americans” who have ever been in the House of Representatives. There have been 71 Democrats and 19 Republicans. (This count omits 1 who was in the Know-Nothing Party and counts another as a Democrat who switched to Republican for a brief period.) That’s 79 percent Democrat and 21 percent Republican.

Other things equal, open borders to Mexico and regions further south are likely to result in a higher proportion of Democrats among voters and in Congress.

Wiki has a “List of Asian Americans and Pacific Islands Americans” in the House of Representatives. Of the 36 people who have ever been elected to the House with these ethnicities, 29 have been Democrats and 7 have been Republicans. That’s 81 percent Democrat and 19 percent Republican. This sample includes people whose extractions include the Indian sub-continent (including Bangladesh), Japan, China (including Taiwan), Korea, the Philippines, Samoa and Vietnam.

Ocasio-Cortez: I Give ‘Zero’ F–ks About Criticism from Democrats

Posted by M. C. on January 22, 2019

Occasional Cortex and Colbert apparently went to the same finishing school as R. DiNero.

New York’s vision of the future.

by Joshua Caplan

Appearing on CBS’s Late Show with host Stephen Colbert on Monday evening, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said she gives “zero” fucks about the pushback she has received from challenging establishment Democrats.

COLBERT: For you and some other freshman members of Congress, you’re getting a fair amount of push back, privately and publicly from more established members of even your own party, saying, wait your turn, you know, go slow. Don’t ask for so much, so fast, right now. You’re new, wait your turn for everything and don’t make waves. Now, I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you’re from Queens, so you’ll understand this question —

REP. OCASIO-CORTEZ: And the BX [Bronx].

COLBERT: On a scale from zero to some, how many fucks do you give?

REP. OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think it’s, uh, zero…

The “F” man.

Don’t buy long term bonds.

By Tom Elliott

The world is going to end in 12 years unless the government takes action, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Monday at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City.

Here’s an excerpt from her interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates:

“And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change. You’re biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II. And I think for younger people looking at this are more like, how are we saying let’s take it easy when 3,000 Americans died last year, how are we saying let’s take it easy when the end person died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system?

How are we saying take it easy, the America that we’re living in today is dystopian with people sleeping in their cars so they can work a second job without healthcare and we’re told to settle down. It’s a fundamental separation between that fierce urgency of now, the why we can’t wait that King spoke of. That at some point this chronic reality do reach a breaking point and I think for our generation it reached that, I wished I didn’t have to be doing every post, but sometimes I just feel like people aren’t being held accountable. Until, we start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let them have it.”

Ocasio-Cortez also suggested the federal government should nationalize Tesla’s technology, following the company’s receipt of tax subsidies. [Video]

It’s past time, she said, that the government gets its “due” for this “investment.”

Consider yourself warned.

And they complain about what comes out of Trump’s mouth!

…‘It’s inevitable that we can use the transition to 100% renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social, and racial justice in the United States of America’…

Obviously concussed after falling off her unicorn. Be seeing you

Ocasio-Cortez Gets Hammered After Anti-Israel Remarks, Admitting Ignorance

Posted by M. C. on July 25, 2018

The corollary to Faux Pas (defined as accidentally saying what you really think) is accidentally telling the truth.

Particularly dangerous when speaking about Israel.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received intense backlash after an interview with PBS in which she made comments with anti-Semitic undertones that prompted even left-leaning pundits to express embarrassment over her remarks.

In an interview on PBS’s “Firing Line” with host Margaret Hoover, Ocasio-Cortez called Israel the “occupiers” of Palestine and then fumbled over her words when pressed to explain herself.

After an stumbling attempt to explain her answer, the economics and international relations major eventually conceded that she did not know what she was talking about, saying that she was not “an expert.”

Still, the backlash that she faced online was overwhelming and brutal, with tens of thousands of people responding to Ocasio-Cortez’s disastrous interview. Below are some of the reactions:

And now comes the cornucopia of tweets…
