Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Why Go West?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The harshest critics of the West in general and the United States in particular are the best arguments for it. What enervates and often destroys Western societies are not barbarians on the horizon, plagues, or invasions, but complacency and unreal demands put on society to reach utopian perfection. Such efforts are contrary to human nature and often result in disastrous social and political polices, leading to impoverishment and collapse. The Hellenic polis, Rome, and Byzantium eventually eroded because each in its complacency forgot the very values that had created its successful cultures in the first place. Why flee from what you find intolerable to what you soon find intolerable?

Socialized Medicine: Saving Money By Killing Grandma

The Economic Report of the President has several interesting sections on the effects of socialist policies and one of the most interesting is its examination of socialist healthcare plans, such as the Socialist Democrats’ “Medicare for All” (M4A) legislation, which would achieve its purported savings by cutting off life extending healthcare to older Americans.

Trump To Lead Fight Against Socialism

In conversation with White House staff it has been made clear that the President’s remarks at CPAC about socialism were not just an example of preaching to the choir and that the administration considers the Democrats’ move to the Far Left to be a serious challenge that was observed coming a long way off and would be confronted at every opportunity.

America's Dual-Justice System Grants Immunity to Ocasio-Cortez

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, The Daily Caller

Russian roulette-style justice finally found its bullet for Steve Stockman in a system stacked against him. Ocasio-Cortez, whose support for what I describe as Lois Lerner’s dream campaign finance legislation, will assuredly receive no such unfair treatment. Lois Lerner was never prosecuted by Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, and now H.R. 1 is dream legislation for partisan deep state operatives like her. Oh, and AOC sure knows how to butter her bread. The irony isn’t so delicious for Steve Stockman and small-government, constitutional conservatives in this dual system of justice.

Socialist Democrat Star AOC Headed For Jail?

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has been quite vocal in condemning so-called dark money, but it appears her own campaign went to great lengths to avoid the sunlight of disclosure, and these are not minor or technical violations. If the allegations are true, we’ve never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent campaign reporting requirements.

It’s Time For America To Break Up With Liberals

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Why not let liberals have their own place, where they can do what they want and enjoy living in their own mess? Make AOC president – that would serve you right. Outlaw “hate speech” and “racism” and “bad think” and generally turn your whole new country into one big college campus. Take New England, libs, with its snow and chowder and Kennedys, and build your pinko Utopia. Would it be congested? Yeah, sure, but hey – you’re all for high-density urban living, right?

Democrats Move From Crony Capitalism To Class Warfare

Nothing illustrates how far Left the Democratic Party has moved than the reaction of the Democrats’ most popular and media savvy politicians to the news that Amazon was abandoning plans to build part of its East Coast headquarters in the New York city of Long Island City.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vs. JFK

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

If AOC or Mrs. Warren were to have their way, the rich would pay less not more of the burden of the taxes. A 70 percent tax rate would mean that the United States would suddenly have the highest tax rates in the world on our small businesses, jobs would leave, and the economy would so tank that the incomes and tax payments of the wealthy would shrink. The modern-day Democrats may not even care if that happened. The modern left is not driven by fairness. It is guided by an ideology of greed and envy. Those are vices, not virtues.

Saving The Earth At The Point Of A Bayonet

The only way the Green New Deal could be accomplished would be through the forced relocation of millions of workers and their families in a massive societal restructuring akin to the forced collectivization of Russian agriculture after the Soviet Revolution of 1917 or Chairman Mao’s Great Leap Forward economic restructuring of Communist China.

Conservatives Hate Dancing, Strong Women So Much!

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

As with everything the elite does to try and retake and hold power, it’s a lie and a scam. They plan to push an image, a vibe, a feel, and thereby distract us from the poisonous ideology they back. We can’t let them. Even as their coordinated propaganda push gets underway the truth still keeps slipping through. We can’t let them dance around it. Since we have zero cultural/media power, we have to fight them on substance. We have to make people see what these monsters would do given the chance.

Don’t Underestimate Dumb Voters’ Appetite For Idiot Leftist Politicians

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We need to take these hacks head-on, both for ourselves and our kids. Don’t think for a moment that the millennial generation is not stupid enough to embrace the agents of their own servitude. The first generation to fail to surpass the success of the previous one is perfectly capable of eagerly voting to make their own lives worse in the name of…whatever it is that motivates these fools. Probably kale and feelings. They deserve laughter, but it’s a mistake to laugh them off. It’s a mistake our country might not recover from.

Ocasio-Cortez Is a Pain in Pelosi’s Agenda

David Catron, The American Spectator

Pelosi will prevail in her January Speaker vote. And, if America’s favorite Democratic Socialite wants to avoid being burned and banished to outer darkness in two years, she will be wise not to set the price for her support too high. Pelosi has been a member of the House since June of 1987, more than two years before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born. Nancy Pelosi has seen a lot of ambitious young fire breathers immolated by their own hubris.

Let’s Give Thanks For Leftists Being Themselves

There’s much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving; a world at relative peace, a booming U.S. economy and a President who has worked hard to lift the heavy hand of government from the backs of America’s working families. But let’s not forget to also give thanks for the power of truth, as Democrats, through their own words, slowly disclose who they really are.

A newer, hungrier kind of Democratic radical

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The leaders of the so-called Justice Movement sometimes sound as if they’re eager to terminate many Democratic old-timers. They’re determined to break up and shake up the old order. The Justice Movement is focused on biography, identity (no more white guys, if possible, and white ladies can be tolerated if they behave themselves). They have their eye on lots of free stuff — free college, free health care, after-school programs for children, nutrition for old folks.

How Far Left Can Democrats Go?

Democratic - Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hardly the only radical Far-Left Democrat on the ballot this November, nor is she in many respects the most radical.

The Left’s Newest Star Is None Too Bright

David Catron, The American Spectator

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless.
