AOC Nails Democratic Party as “Big Business” Opportunists

The DailyWire’s Andrew Kalavan highlights that the Democrats have become the big government party bankrolled by big business, and it’s news coming from none other than socialist U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. More specifically, AOC recently decried the move of Amazon headquarters to New York City, a move highly subsidized at the expense of taxpayers to the tune of $48,000 per Amazon employee. Though she misses the bigger point that this is a mess caused by wealth redistribution and big government, Klavan explained: “Here’s the thing where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is actually right. She says she was ‘outraged’ that they paid out all this money to Amazon to get them to move to New York. Democrats are guilty of precisely the thing with which they paint Republicans.” And it’s another Democrat who is pointing out the obvious. Weird world.

The Arizona border will have 32 miles of existing wall replaced starting next April.

The $324 million project has been given the green light by federal immigration officials, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Thursday.

The project will switch out an old barrier that runs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector west into the Yuma Sector, which is just miles from Arizona’s border with California. The replacement wall is meant to keep pedestrians and vehicles from entering the U.S. Older barriers were largely to prevent cars from driving over, but were only a few feet tall and did little to keep people from trespassing from Mexico.

The undertaking, which will be paid for by congressional funding for CBP from 2018 legislation, is part of President Trump’s January 2017 executive order to secure the country by improving barriers in vulnerable and high-traffic areas.

Scott Campaign Calls for Florida Dem Chairwoman to Resign

Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign manager Jackie Schutz Zeckman threw down the gauntlet and is calling for Terrie Rizzo – Democratic Party chairwoman for the state – to resign. Zeckman made her case accusing Rizzo of conducting “including efforts to extend the due date for corrected mail-in ballots.” This could be seen as setting up the state’s election process for failure or at least a recount like the one happening right now. Failure has its consequences.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign manager is calling on the state’s Democratic Party chairwoman to resign, accusing her of conducting “an illegal scheme to alter election forms” in the still-undecided Senate race.

Jackie Schutz Zeckman, Scott’s campaign manager, said Terrie Rizzo was behind an attempt to extend the legally established due date sent to voters who were asked to correct problems with their mail-in ballots.

“News reports yesterday and today revealed that the Florida Democrat Party engaged in an illegal scheme to alter election forms and deceive voters regarding the deadlines for submitting votes,” Zeckman said in a statement.

Florida officials have sought the help of federal prosecutors to examine the matter, in which Democratic party officials appear to have changed the date from Nov. 6 until Nov. 8 for voters to fix mail-in ballot problems in four counties, including Broward County, a heavily populated Democratic stronghold.

De Niro Blasts “Jerkoff” Trump

Has-been thespian Robert De Niro is selling off his celebrity career on the anti-Trump bandwagon with yet another epithet for President Trump. After referring to Trump as a “jerkoff,” he hyped up his audience of Hollywood elites with this humdinger: “Down with this motherf*cker.” De Niro made the remarks while presenting comedian Billy Crystal the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award. Showing just how tone-deaf he is, De Niro called for a “heroic comedian-in-chief” in the Oval Office. We think reelection in 2020 will give Trump the last laugh.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

It might be time for Robert De Niro to think about attending an anger management class.

The once-great actor just can’t seem to wrap his head around the fact that Donald Trump won the presidency, even though it’s been nearly 800 days since Election Day 2016.

The “Raging Bull” star went on another profanity-laced tirade, this time while presenting comedian Billy Crystal the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award, according to Variety.

“De Niro first shouted, ‘F— Crystal!’ as a wink to his condemnation of Trump at the Tony Awards earlier this year. ‘I just get so upset with that jerkoff in the White House,’ he said, drawing boos from the crowd. ‘Boo is right! Down with this motherf—er!'”

De Niro also said he thinks Crystal should consider running for president. “We’ve got a dangerous buffoon-in-chief. What we need is a heroic comedian-in-chief,” he said.

AOC Upset Amazon is Bringing 25,000 Jobs to NYC

Socialist U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “outraged” that Amazon is going to invest billions of dollars and bring 25,000 jobs to New York City after the company announced Tuesday a new headquarters location. “Amazon is a billion-dollar company,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.” Earth to AOC: jobs mean higher tax revenue, which means more money for socialists to redistribute. AOC is so anticapitalism that she can’t see when it is obviously working in her favor.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not happy that Amazon, the world’s most valuable company, has decided to invest billions of dollars and bring approximately 25,000 jobs to New York City.

The 28-year-old bartender turned politician responded to the news that Amazon is bringing a second headquarters to NYC by claiming, without evidence, that her community is “outraged.”

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday:

New York City and Northern Virginia will be the homes for Amazon.com Inc.’s second and third headquarters, according to people familiar with the matter, ending a more than yearlong public contest that started with 238 candidates and ended with a surprise split of its so-called HQ2.

Amazon is dividing the second headquarters evenly between New York’s Long Island City and Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhoods, which are both located directly across from the major city centers.

Jerry Brown Blames Climate Change for California Wildfires

Forget a wholesale lack of evidence, climate evangelist Gov. Jerry Brown of California is blaming climate change – not poor forest management – for the wildfires wreaking havoc in his state. This is in stark contrast to ample evidence to the contrary: wildfires on the West Coast are largely the result of man-made overregulation, resulting in the underharvesting of forests and an abundance of flammable dead undergrowth and trees. Moonbeam Brown and his ilk also ignore California’s routinely hot, dry climate with cyclical, prolonged drought.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

California Gov. Jerry Brown blamed climate change Sunday for the California wildfires, despite a complete lack of evidence — a day after President Donald Trump was widely criticized for blaming poor forest management.
According to the Associated Press, Brown, described as an “evangelist” for climate change, also blamed climate change deniers for the deadly fires, saying they were responsible for the deaths of California residents.

“Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” he said. “And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we’re now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years.”

Trump’s theory is that over-regulation has led to under-harvesting of forests, leaving more fuel for fires to burn. Brown’s theory is that the global use of fossil fuels is making California warmer and drier, and more prone to fires.

“Serial Election Rigger”: Progressive Candidate Warned About Election Official

Tim Canova, a progressive candidate who lost his 2016 race against Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, is calling out Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes as a “serial rigger.” “I have warned that Snipes is a serial election rigger who would rig the recent elections,” Canova told the Gateway Pundit. “I do not believe in the accuracy of any election returns reported out of Broward County.” Snipes is, of course, the one and same election official overseeing the recount happening right now in Florida with 78,000 “new” votes “found” over the past two days as the race has continues to slide closer to a belated victory for the Left.

The bombshell voter fraud lawsuit that Florida governor Rick Scott filed against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is no surprise to Tim Canova, a progressive candidate who says Snipes rigged his 2016 Congressional race against Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

“I have warned that Snipes is a serial election rigger who would rig the recent elections,” Canova told the Gateway Pundit. “I do not believe in the accuracy of any election returns reported out of Broward County.”

He added: “To restore integrity in our elections, we need to ban electronic voting machines and instead move to 100% paper ballots counted by hand in public. Without free and fair elections, we have no democracy.”

Acosta Acosts Girl, Loses Press Pass

CNN’s Jim Acosta finally crossed the red line of tolerance for his obnoxious White House press room antics, losing his “hard pass” access as a result. As any irrational adult does, Acosta took to Twitter to whine about it: “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.” He forgot to mention that he was ejected for “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” per White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Where’s the cheer of support from the media for President Trump’s zero tolerance of Acosta’s manhandling of a young female intern?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The United States Secret Service took away CNN’s Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” late on Wednesday after the professional provocateur pulled another obnoxious stunt during a White House press conference.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit,” Acosta wrote on Twitter.

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a tweet. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”

WALSH: Democratic House a Blessing in Disguise for Trump

The 2018 midterms concluded with Democrats gaining at least 28 seats and taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives; however, they also lost three seats in the Senate and could not buy governorships in Texas, Florida, or Georgia despite all of the celebrity endorsements, war chests, and MSM lovefest. As Matt Walsh reveals, it isn’t going to be all that bad despite gridlock in our imminent future. He argues that in fact it could help propel a Trump 2020 victory and a Republican retake of the House in 2020 since the Democrats in charge will leave Americans disgusted that their time and money are being wasted attacking President Trump with one political witch hunt after another. Explains Walsh, “If their anti-Trump crusade proves as fruitless as the anti-Kavanaugh crusade, it is hard to imagine just how thoroughly exhausted and sickened the electorate will feel 24 months from now. Trump won’t even have to campaign at all. Nancy Pelosi will see to his reelection herself.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The Blue Wave never came. Democrats gained 28 seats in the House, less than half of what Republicans gained in the 2010 midterms, and lost ground in the Senate. Moreover, three of their up-and-coming stars — Beto O’Rourke in Texas, Andrew Gillum in Florida, Stacey Abrams in Georgia — lost in spite of millions of dollars and much media hype.

Yet they do have the House. This, I think, will certainly be bad for the country. It means two years of gridlock and dysfunction, even worse than the gridlock and dysfunction that already plagued our government. But it’s very possible that last night’s results will prove greatly advantageous to President Trump. He may well have earned re-election in 2020 by losing the House in 2018.

The Democrats have made their plans very clear. They will spend the next two years launching investigations and wielding their subpoena power in a blatant attempt to settle political vendettas.

Pelosi Wants Dems Ready to “Throw a Punch”

Democrats apparently have already forgotten about that whole de-escalating the violent political rhetoric thing. House Minority Queen Bee Nancy Pelosi said her party mates should be ready to “throw a punch” during an Oct. 28 interview with podcaster Jonathan Van Ness. “We are not them,” Pelosi said. “We do not act the way they do. But I do think when you are in the area and somebody throws a punch, you’ve got to be ready [to] take a punch and throw a punch.” So much for “uniting” the country and “bringing people together” if Democrats win.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats should be prepared to “throw a punch” in the political arena, while discussing the midterm election with podcaster Jonathan Van Ness at the Bentzen Ball in Washington D.C. last month.

“What we are trying to do is speak to them not about what we disagree but where we agree, that they need to have a bigger paycheck and lower health care costs, and their voice should be stronger than a special dark money interest money being spent,” Pelosi said of the Democrats’ midterm election message to voters. Pelosi pledged Democrats will move to make the government more transparent if they retake Congress on Tuesday, something the embattled California lawmakers claims, was the case when her party last held a majority.

“We are not then,” Pelosi said of Republicans, before urging Democrats to toughen up for future legislative battles against conservatives. “We do not act the way they do.

Farrakhan Visits Iran: Chants “Death to America”

Anti-semite favorite of the political left Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan traveled to Iran on the anniversary of the 1979 hostage crisis and the Trump administration’s levying of new sanctions on Iran to lead chants of “Death to America.” He also used the opportunity to tell his Iranian audience that black Americans released during the hostage crisis should be regarded as revolutionaries, and that “America has never been a democracy.” With friends like Farrakhan, who needs enemies? He’s one more reminder of why the left’s motley coalition is such an odd thing.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who recently compared Jewish people to termites, led a “Death to America” chant Sunday during a solidarity trip to Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip came ahead of the Trump administration’s re-implementation of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic on Monday.

Speaking to law school students at the University of Tehran, the 85-year-old Farrakhan said “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, according to Iranian news agencies.

“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei. Farrakhan noted his belief America is conspiring against Iran.
