Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an anti-Semitic progressive Democrat racist, Soros mercenary and outspoken advocate of a proven democidal ideology. She is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Ocasio-Cortez has been mentioned as a presidential candidate in 2028.[1]

Ocasio-Cortez is considered by mainstream media as the embodiment of a rising generation of Millennials to occupy the liberal movement.[2][3] Her rise to power illustrated the increasing economic illiteracy of the Left.[4]

Tom Perez, who rigged the Superdelegate nomination of Hillary Clinton and his own election as DNC chair to slap down the uppity African American frontrunner Keith Ellison,[5] has anointed Ocasio-Cortez as "the future of the Democratic Party." Critics describe her commitment to Democratic Socialism as a the views of a simpleton and naive.

Background

Rich kid

Although Ocasio-Cortez pretends to speak for and come from poverty, she grew up in the white privileged suburb of Westchester County with a median household income of $83,000 – one of the highest in the country. Westchester County is the home of the Clinton and Rockefeller estates.[6]

Sanders retread

Ocasio-Cortez is the quintessential wide-eyed liberal.[7] Early on, her website was a redirect page for the group Brand New Congress, archives in the Wayback Machine show.[8] Ocasio-Cortez is largely viewed as a Bernie Sanders retread. She has appeared on a podcast with another far left activist who stated that Jews "should get the f*** out of Palestine."[9] In November 2018, she tried and failed to name the three branches of government.[10]

2018 election

Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley in the 2018 nominating primary for New York's 14th congressional district with a 12% turnout. Primary victory is tantamount to general election victory in this district, meaning 7 out of 8 people she represents did not vote for her, yet the media proclaimed her as representative of a generation.[11] Crowley had been the leading contender to succeed Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic Party leader.[12] Elected to Congress, Ocasio-Cortez immediately began wasting taxpayer money.[13]

After having offed Pelosi's successor, the Democrats had no one to succeed her. But that didn't stop Ocasio-Cortez from trying to off Pelosi, as well.[14] Socialism can only tear down; Socialism had never built anything that can endure.

Democratic socialism

On the issues

Ocasio-Cortez' advocacy of Medicare for All, free college tuition and housing would cost $42 Trillion, two-and-one-half times the nation's total economic output, or GDP, experts say.[15]

The United States has the world's largest economic output at $17 Trillion with 6% of the planet's population producing 25% of the planet's total economic output. In an interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN, Ocasio-Cortez gave no indication of understanding, or proposals on how to increase total U.S. GDP by 250%, as well as the consumption of the world's resources and increased carbon emissions necessary to produce $42 Trillion in total output, to fulfill any of her proposals.

The question of what other people would live on - the people who are not beneficiaries of Ocasio-Cortez's proposals, was never addressed.

Funeral costs and voter registration

Ocasio-Cortez did however, question the reported figures of the cost of U.S. healthcare, claiming the numbers do not include the funeral costs of the uninsured.[16] Ocasio-Cortez did not explain how a deceased person would be a recurring cost to the U.S. healthcare system either.

In addition to a deceased persons voting, a deceased retiree theoretically could remain a cost burden to the Social Security system.[17] If survivors or heirs hold a Social Security recipient's debit card and pin number, that deceased person could continue for decades voting and drawing entitlement benefits.

There is no uniform system of reporting deaths to both the Social Security Administration and to election registrars simultaneously, an issue with potentially tens of billions of dollars in savings, which Social Democrats have shown no interest in.[18] The savings could be used to fund funeral costs by means testing.

116th Congress

Upon election Ocasio-Cortez immediately began panhandling for cash to meet her personal expenses. On financial disclosure forms Ocasio-Cortez reported she had between $15,000-$50,000 in cash in personal savings.[19] What promises were made in exchange for personal cash contributions were never reported.

Ocasio-Cortez raised $1.8 million in a district where she recieved 78% of the vote, meaning she has plenty of cash to dole out to other Democrat House members to buy thier support, loyalty, and favors.[20] Her Republican opponent spent $1935 on the election.

Fundraising

Ocasio-Cortez is a case study in what is wrong with campaign finance laws. Cortez sits in a safe district, meaning she was virtually elected in the primary. The liberal media turned her into a fundraising magnet - for money she didn't need in a district she ran in virtually unopposed.

Campaign "war chests," as they are called, are not to be used for the candidate's personal enrichment. Some candidates raise more money than they need, others have difficulty attracting donations even in their own districts, let alone from outside lobbyists in Washington. Under existing regulations, candidates and members are free to donate to each other. Congresspeople become laundry machines for disguised donors. Instead of a member taking bribes from outside interests, they are "owned" by a fellow member, where any pretense of equality between the people's elected representatives is a charade. At 29 years old, Ocasio-Cortez was already barnstorming across the country raising money and helping other Democrats get elected,[21] for which they are indebted to her, before she was even elected.

NeverPelosi

Ocasio-Cortez is a nihilist who tried to overthrow Nancy Pelosi.

At the very moment California was consumed by the worst wildfires in history, Ocasio-Cortez led a mob of tree huggers in a takeover of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Capital Hill office.

The wildfires killed scores of people and left tens of thousands homeless. The fires were fueled by bad forestry management and a failure to remove dead trees.

Holocaust denialism

Main article: Holocaust

Ocasio-Cortez compared illegal Central American migrants in Mexico seeking to enter the United States to Holocaust victims.

Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, chairman of the National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene said that
“Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has enunciated a blood libel by designating members of the Israel Defense Forces, demonstrably amongst the most moral on earth, as murderers for defending the state against nihilistic terrorists, as ‘murderers,’ and enunciating other assorted calumnies against the Jewish state."

Ethics violations and abuse of power

Before taking office, Ocasio-Cortez was embroiled in allegations of violating House Ethics Rules and federal law. Ocasio-Cortez threatened a private citizen and political opponent with subpoenas and investigation. The House Rules Manuel states,
“Members…are not to take or withhold any official action on the basis of the campaign contributions or support of the involved individuals, or their partisan affiliation. Members and staff are likewise prohibited from threatening punitive action on the basis of such considerations.”[22]
What's more, Ocasio-Cortez may have violated 42 U.S. Code § 1983 – Civil action for deprivation of rights:
"Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia."
(R.S. § 1979; Pub. L. 96–170, § 1, Dec. 29, 1979, 93 Stat. 1284; Pub. L. 104–317, title III, § 309(c), Oct. 19, 1996, 110 Stat. 3853.)[23]

Controversies

Former President Obama endorsed Ocasio-Cortez while former Democratic party Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman said if Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic socialism is the future of the Democratic party, the party doesn't have much of a future.[24]

Ocasio-Cortez has made numerous blatantly false statements,[25] so extreme that even The Washington Post pointed them out.[26][27][28]

Ocasio-Cortez believes debating issues of public policy is sexist.[29] Ocasio-Cortez has banned the press from attending public speaking events.[30][31]

Her campaign spent nearly $4,000 on Uber after she blamed the company for taxi driver suicides.[32] She has engaged in other examples of liberal hypocrisy.[33]

Ocasio-Cortez could not restrain her racist attitudes toward white males in critizing the NeverPelosi movement.[34][35]
