This is how socialism really works

Loading


 
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a know-it-all ditz. The founder of Greenpeace has called her a “pompous little twit.”

While she is amusing, she is also a media darling That makes her dangerous as she is accorded far more press coverage than is warranted. Still, her utterances are both a source of hilarity and a warning. AOC has spent her Congressional tenure bashing America and endorsing socialism. While do so, she exposes her own galactic hypocrisy and demonstrates how socialism and socialist leaders really roll.



Her “Green New Deal” would do away with all fossil fuels and jet aircraft, but that doesn’t stop her from using a gas guzzler when she desires:

To achieve this, the GND fact sheet says, the nation must “totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high-speed rail … create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”

But the woman who boasts of a “razor-sharp BS detector” seems to have trouble sniffing out her own.

Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustion-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.

Her explanation? “I’m just living in the world.”

Freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to The Post’s report on her giant carbon footprint by saying she’s just “living in the world.”

“I also fly and use AC,” the Green New Deal-touting pol tweeted Saturday night. “Living in the world as it is isn’t an argument against working towards a better future.”

Part her Green New Deal is the demand that Americans stop eating “farting cows” but her chief of staff was caught happily downing a burger.

She took great exception to this. Not him eating the farting cow, but someone actually catching him eating it.


 
She responded with the hypocrite’s favorite defense- outrage

She feels America is “garbage” and asserts that capitalism is “irredeemable” 

“To me, capitalism is irredeemable,” she added, arguing that capitalism’s goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.

The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, added during her interview that “we should be scared.”

“Just as there’s all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government,” she said.

That’s pretty funny stuff considering the capitalist life style she lives.

AOC has had three ethics complaints filed against her.

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation, a nonprofit, filed an ethics complaint last week alleging that Ocasio-Cortez had used House resources for personal means when she allowed her boyfriend to obtain a House.gov email address. The complaint also alleged that she obtained the email address by falsely listing him as a staff member.

Just a few days earlier, the National Legal and Policy Center had filed a complaint with the FEC alleging an incestuous relationship between Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and Justice Democrats — a PAC which was at the time controlled by the congresswoman and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti — in addition to possible campaign finance violations.

third complaint was filed by The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, which alleged that Ocasio-Cortez’s social media use may violate House ethics rules. At issue is her use of a political Instagram account — which contains direct links to her House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions — includes posts of official video footage from the House floor.

Her Chief of Staff funneled a million dollars from her campaign into a two of his own companies:

Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics.

Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

The arrangement skirted reporting requirements and may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates, according to the complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Campaign finance attorneys described the arrangement as “really weird” and an indication “there’s something amiss.” They said there was no way of telling where the political donations went — meaning they could have been pocketed or used by the company to pay for off-the-books campaign operations.

The networks have had zero interest in this. Speaking of dodging, AOC created the ruse that she would cap her employees’ income at $80,000 in the interest of fairness. The real reason for that was to allow her staff to avoid transparency:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ decision to cap her office salaries at $80,000 will let her chief of staff and senior employees avoid public transparency laws that would require them to reveal outside income, gifts, and stock trading activity.

The New York Democrat announced last week that she would institute “living wage” rules in her office, paying staff members a minimum of $52,000 a year and a maximum of $80,000 a year.

Under federal law, congressional employees who earn more than $126,000 a year — which includes most chiefs of staff — must submit public financial disclosure forms that detail outside income they earn, stock investments, debt, and gifts or paid trips that they are given by outside sources.

Ocasio-Cortez chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, would be shielded from the public disclosure laws that apply to the vast majority of chiefs of staff in Congress.

Chakrabarti, 33, founded a Silicon Valley app-building company called Some Character LLC before taking an active role in left-wing politics. Last June, Chakrabarti purchased a $1.6 million home in Montgomery County, Md., according to real estate records reviewed by the Washington Examiner.

The National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, said the $80,000 salary cap for Ocasio-Cortez’ senior staffers was concerning because it could be used to intentionally evade financial disclosure laws.

That sounds pretty capitalist to me.

Ask her about Venezuela and Maduro and she’ll launch into tirade- against Trump

Despite her not having even been born at the time, she knows all about Ronald Reagan:

“One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in the ’80s when he started talking about welfare queens,” Ocaiso-Cortez said. “So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing that were ‘sucks’ on our country.”

AOC has made abundantly clear that she is not willing to live up to the ideals she espouses, just as the socialist leaders of the past have failed to do:

Socialist leaders come to power promising to equalize society.

Venezuela

Hugo Chavez brought socialism to Venezuela and once said that it is “bad” to be rich. Yet his family lived in opulence even as the rest of the country has in recent years descended into starvation and violence.

Chavez, despite not being wealthy when he was democratically elected as president of Venezuela in 1998, was worth between $1 billion and $2 billion at his death, according to global risk analysis firm Criminal Justice International Associates.

Soviet Union

The top leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had access to a network of palaces, cars and delicacies. However, Soviet leaders lived up to their ideals in one way: they never officially owned any of it. Upon death, the things they used went to the next leader.

Joseph Stalin loved American-made Packard cars, and had several.

Soviet leaders and bureaucrats also had their own elite, exclusive system of grocery stores, hospitals and schools — even while ordinary Russian citizens sometimes waited for hours to buy food.
China

China’s constitution states that it “is a socialist state under the people’s democratic dictatorship led by the working class” – yet, its leaders live far better than workers.

China suffered more deaths than any other country due to starvation caused by the government takeover of farms. Sixty-five million people were killed, per The Black Book of Communism.

“The leaders never intended for themselves to be the ones who were tightening their belts,” Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, told Fox News.

“Mao [Zedong] is a great example. He had a rotating harem of underage girls,” Smith said. That is per Mao’s former personal physician, who later moved to America.

“Mao was sitting in his luxurious pool, talking to Western journalists, while millions of Chinese died of starvation,” Smith added.

To the visionary pantheon of  Chavez, Castro, Stalin and Mao we can add Ocasio-Cortez. She’s a hypocrite now. One can only imagine the horror she’d visit on this country given the opportunity. In Orwell’s Animal Farm, Ocasio-Cortez would be the most equal of the animals.

Of course, that would have to be after she paid the outstanding corporate tax bill she still owes New York City.

Democratic socialism. This is how it really rolls.

She’s full of sh*t.

If you listen to AOC carefully you see hints that she’s scripted sometimes and off-the-cuff other times.
I was putting together the same thought as the above video but without all his research into her puppet masters.
According to this video:
She won a cattle call for an actress to play the part of Congressperson by a very left-leaning but very uncharismatic group of rich men.
She is only one of 11 they managed to get into office, according to the video.
Their plan, which conservatives ignore as it only hurts Dems, (at this time) is to replace ALL moderate Dems with puppets who will act in a very liberal manner.

As a useful idiot, she is perfect.
Perhaps she is unfamiliar with how socialists/communists treat their puppets once they attain power: they purge them!
Somebody buy this female a history book!

The founder of Greenpeace has called her a “pompous little twit.”

Apparently he is an environmentalist that also wants to eat.

Joseph Stalin loved American-made Packard cars, and had several.

Actually, they bought all the tooling for older models and built them in the Soviet Union. Also, Hitler, another socialist in good standing, enjoyed an opulent lifestyle.

Of course, that would have to be after she paid the outstanding corporate tax bill she still owes New York City.

She probably won’t pay them because they’re too low. I bet that’s it.

@Nan G:

As a useful idiot, she is perfect.

Well, she hasn’t quite mastered the “useful” part. Yeah, when she was rambling on at SXSW, she was practically incoherent, which is probably when she does the least damage to herself.

I’m the boss, and you are just yelling from the cheap seats.
Newbies from the Democrat Socialist Party socialistworker.org/2018/07/04/socialists-aoc-and-the-democratic-party.
Destroy the party from within, and the moderates extinct, the old dogs trying to be just like the new face of the Democrat party.
Terribly amusing to watch them promise to out tax each other, up to and including confiscation suggested by Warren. (it wouldnt pay 1 year of spending)
https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/01/elizabeth-warren-tax-plan
Problem the promises free stuff green stuff out spend the confiscation by miles.

Moore is not a founder of Greenpeace; Greenpeace specifically disavows his ideas on this topic. He’s a paid spokesman for the nuclear industry.

https://www.greenpeace.org/archive-international/en/about/history/Patrick-Moore-background-information/

@Michael: Your article confirms he was a co-founder in 1971 there were others, Dorothy Stowe, Irving Stowe, Marie Bohlen, Jim Bohlen, Ben Metcalfe, Dorothy Metcalfe, Bob Hunter and Bill Darnell.
Moore joined the committee in 1971 and, as Greenpeace co-founder Bob Hunter wrote, “Moore was quickly accepted into the inner circle on the basis of his scientific background, his reputation. [as an environmental activist]
In 1986, after leaving Greenpeace over differences in policy, Moore established a family salmon farming business, Quatsino Seafarms, at his home in Winter Harbour. He commented that he had left Greenpeace because it “took a sharp turn to the political left” and “evolved into an organization of extremism and politically motivated agendas”
Extremism and politically motivated agendas is exactly what the Green deal is.
I dont care for this guy because there is no such thing as safe nuclear power as it is fueled today. It doesnt have the emissions of coal or gas. I also dont like his association with Monsanto.
You dont have to be a wacko to care about the planet. AOC is a total Wacko, drunk on power. Her 10 year plan is genocidal, she has no children much like the leaders of the EU no skin in the game for the next generation.

@kitt: Well, Greenpeace says he wasn’t a founder. Surely they know more about their organization than you do…?

The passage you cite as proof he was a founder specifically says that he joined the group a year after its founding.

@Michael: Is that why they voted him as a president? My source was not exactly 100% Wikipedia, he was with the organization longer than Hunter, he was leader as it expanded and gained media attention save the whales.
As I said I am not a fan of his, but wouldnt discount his contributions to Green Peace.
He is absolutely correct on AOC, her Nazi philosophy should remain buried, the democrat party is unearthing this philosophy and trying to repackage it as “new” stuff.
https://oldmanoftheski.com/2017/11/30/the-nazi-roots-of-the.
Know history to avoid repeating it.

@kitt: Trump is President, but he didn’t found the United States, for crying out loud.

@Michael: Do want a discussion or to blow it out your a$$
Trump wasn’t elected 1 year after we told the king to cram it.
More trivia GW our first president did not sign the declaration and the constitution wasnt adopted until 1787 all parts of our founding.

@kitt:

Trump wasn’t elected 1 year after we told the king to cram it.

Neither was Washington, for what it’s worth.

All things being equal, I’ll take Greenpeace’s word on its own history over yours, and Greenpeace specifically says that Moore was not a founder.

@Michael: Greenpeace wouldn’t be if it were not for his contributions, good things were accomplished, an end to above ground nuclear testing, save the whales, there was infighting during his time as well. But that aside, this is about how socialism is a political philosophy that kills, they always need a scapegoat a boogeyman, they are the monster in the closet and under the bed and if we look at how the Nazi movement began we see the signs of this “new” face of the Democrat Socialist Party using the same recycled tactics. They must not gain power, I can only show you this has happened before. I cant convince you or sway you of anything just point to obvious. Its up to you to accept or reject it. You could try to stay on subject and convince me I am in error.

Bottom line is that Occasional-Kotex IS a pompous twit. An ignorant, socialist, radical, pompous twit. The the left loves her.

@Deplorable Me:

Occasional-Kotex

Is that the “spark of intelligence” you say justifies name-calling?

@Michael: I’ve seen much worse, when the Congress woman uses data and science to justify her claims the planet has 12 years
and destroying our country is the only way to fix it she can be defended in her Nazi philosophy. The fear mongering arrogant newbie has no grip on reality, history or science.

@Michael: That’s how much respect I have for this mule-faced socialist idiot you Democrats think is such a genius.

@Deplorable Me: He fails to see Ms Cortez wants a WW2 like effort effort taken to make her Nazi plan come true. The irony of that escapes totally him. Perhaps he will go out to sell “green” bonds to fund the cause.

@kitt: Seems he and people like him want to discuss everything but the problem.

@Deplorable Me: There is a word for that Troll.
The Anti-semite Nazi backers havent a clue what the end game is.

@kitt:

Michael is just anther mindless troll who doesn’t ask the right questions. Questions like:

Who, really, is AOC?

Where did she come from?

Did she, while working as a bartender, just decide one day to run for public office? Can you just hear the conversation she had with herself? “Um, I think I will run for public office. How about councilman? No, too local. State Rep or State Senator? Nah, beneath my intellect level. Hey, how about Federal Congressman? Yeah, I’ll get a tony apartment, and my face all over the TV. Let’s see; I can do this all I need is some group to fund me”

Who funded her and where did they come from?

We all know when AOC goes “off script” she comes off like a total dimwit. Who is writing her scripts? Who is her “Chief of Staff” and where does he come from?

Who are the Justice Democrats PAC and how did they pick the candidates they supported like AOC, Ilhad Omar and Rashida Tlalib, not to mention the Reconquista, Raul Grijalva.

Those are the questions Michael should be asking. I suspect, he would like the answers.

@Deplorable Me: Remember, though: you told me that name-calling was only okay if it showed a “spark of intelligence” in highlighting a particular aspect of someone’s personality. I have no respect for Kitt, and you objected to my calling her a name, simply on the grounds of name-calling.

@retire05:

We all know when AOC goes “off script” she comes off like a total dimwit.

Hmm… kind of like Obama.

@Michael: As I said, you prefer to talk about anything but the subject. But, believe me, if my party was accepting the blight on humanity of socialism as an acceptable ideology and welcoming jabbering dimwits into the national legislature and hailing them as its very future, I’d change the subject, too.

@retire05: What do you expect from a kid. Poor little government brainwashed child. I would guess his age as early 20s with no life experience.

@Michael Greenpeace listed Moore as a co-founder until 2007. https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/12/greenpeace-patrick-moore-green-new-deal/

AOC’s popularity depends on the ignorance of American youth concerning socialism.

Public schoolchildren have been indoctrinated in socialism for a long time, a romanticized version where there are no purges, no skyrocketing inflation, no inner circle getting rich and no regular folks suffering greatly.
If you ask a young person what socialism is they conflate it with “fairness.”
They have no idea that “socialist” dictators make up many of the top richest world leaders, Castro was a billionaire with over 70 beachfront homes and a yacht, Hugo Chavez (killed by CastroCare) was worth between $1 &2 Billion on his death.

I remember Pelosi thinking ObamaCare was socialist enough to where people could play violin in the subway and live comfortably! That’s the romanticized socialism.
That’s not the real deal.

People working like dogs for a bare subsistence lifestyle is more the norm for the non-inner-circle in socialist systems.

@Nan G: Supporters of socialism all think they will be the screwer’s and not the screwed. And that, of course, is the key. Keep in mind, we have a lot of the population that is perfectly happy with police state tactics used against their opponents or people they don’t like because they can’t envision it happening to them. Of course, they really never have to worry about those who respect the Constitution doing to them what they encourage to be done to those who are not of their ideology.

@Deplorable Me: Here’s something on the subject. As a paid spokesperson for the nuclear industry, anything that Moore says about alternative energy production is suspect.

In order to power the US, without nuke or fossil, the area the size of Texas and California would be needed. Can you tell me where those solarpanels and windmills will come from? The labor and time to build such a grid? The carbon footprint to produce the materials, no fossil we need to carry them on our backs, put them up without cranes ect. All while needing the material and manpower to rebuild or retrofit every building. AOC has no answers or solutions for logistics or planing, its a brain fart.
Then that land mass is not able to produce food. the panels must be kept clean, the blades of the windmills de-iced in the winter.
You must be 100% on board with this, or else.

@Michael: However, what he said about Mule-Face’s $93 trillion throat-slitting of the United States were certainly accurate enough. What would be the carbon footprint of a construction project of rebuilding every building in the country? Without gas, coal, nuclear or even hydro, where will the energy come from to accomplish all this? Solar or wind cannot power heavy trucks or aircraft… what is the answer for that?

Oh… sorry. You don’t like to talk about such things and AOC thinks it is “nit picking”. $93 trillion worth of nit picking.
