Representative of the 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Giving accountability the finger

The Grayzone

An anti-war activist was visited by California Highway Patrol officers after posting video of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s bumbling comments on Israel-Palestine. The action, which AOC denies triggering, was initiated by a call to US Capitol Police.

As he waited for a food delivery at his home in Los Angeles on April 8, Ryan Wentz, an anti-war activist and producer for the online viral program Soapbox, heard two men calling his name from over his front gate. When he approached, he realized they were not delivery drivers, but police officers flashing badges of the California Highway Patrol.

The cops informed Wentz that they had received a call from the Capitol Police, the federal law enforcement agency tasked with protecting the US Congress, about a tweet he had sent that allegedly threatened Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Wentz told The Grayzone, “The officers said, ‘We got a warning about a sitting member of Congress. And it was because of your tweet, which tagged them in it.’ And then they just wouldn’t back down from this accusation that I threatened to kill her.”

The California Highway Patrol indicated on Twitter that it had acted on a call from Capitol Police.

Though AOC’s office has denied falsely informing Capitol Police of an online threat by Wentz, the Democratic congresswoman has in the past asked her supporters to report critics to social media censors.

Whoever called the police on Wentz furnished law enforcement with a patently false allegation, as he has never threatened violence against any member of Congress.

In the tweet that triggered the police action, Wentz merely posted video of AOC delivering a vapid and embarrassingly convoluted answer to a question about resolving the crisis in Israel-Palestine. Describing her answer as “incredibly underwhelming,” he let the congresswoman’s cringeworthy commentary speak for itself.

Going by my recent difficulty with the Twitter, this incident confirms that the social media platform is no longer a “private company” and has become an arm of the government hell bent to induce and normalize censorship and will shut down any attempt to hold elected officials accountable for their bad policies and idiotic statements. And just like in my case, this person got clamped down for words belonging to another person.

AOC should be less concerned about what she perceives are threats to herself, her brand, her political party and evidently a powerful political lobby and more with the persistent problems and crises that’s affecting her district starting with the recent fire that left hundreds homeless in Jackson Heights. But apparently, the politically gutless AOC would rather have her own personal National Security Agency apparatus than have her manifesting her virtue signal tweets into getting better hourly salaries, secure housing and medicare for all to the people.

 

Fascist idiot.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Has Forsaken Political Courage

Too soon mural in the East Village, Manhattan taken in 2019.

Washington D.C., U.S.A.

This has been quite the new beginning for re-elected wunderkind Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. After easily winning the primary and the general election last November along with Trump falling to a guy who didn’t make any effort to win, AOC became the most culturally powerful figure in Congress with a massive social media following bigger than most celebrity figures in movies and pop music. With this much status and power in presumably good hands, it seem the iconic Latinx from the Bronx had solid momentum to get progressive policies and programs for the working people and working families ratified into laws.

Then all of sudden, a jagoff comedian dared her to back her words and foment change…

Days after her victory, California Man Jimmy Dore released a video from his youtube channel/podcast encouraging her to make a concerted effort to get universal health care on the floor in Congress. Well renowned on social and corporate news media as Medicare For All, Mr. Dore’s video manifesto laid out how it could become a reality if she would use her leverage as the most popular lawmaker to get M4All on the floor. Dore also pointed out how getting it on the floor can be easily realized with more votes from her progressive congressional allies in the “Sqaud”; Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Talib and the immensely popular Ihlan Omar who all recently came off huge victories themselves in their districts. Along with victories by fellow progressives Cori Bush and Jamal Bowman (also from the boogie down Bronx), Dore pointed out that these progressive minds could align and force the vote for medicare for all, and with AOC as social media’s alpha dog, she and they could use that new leverage against Rep. Nancy Pelosi who was looking to get re-elected as house speaker and withhold their votes for her unless Medicare for All gets heard.

Dore’s advice made absolute sense. Forcing the vote was certainly not complex to execute; besides the gains progressives made in the election, the House lost a bunch of seats and Nancy Pelosi’s hold onto the gavel was tenuous to say the least plus her popularity poll levels shown her to be more despised by voters than they were for Donald Trump. Another major factor for forcing the vote for Med4All and against Pelosi is that support for universal free health care has 3/4 support from the citizenry of all political parties. Plus the misnomered Affordable Care Act prices are obscene for working class people who have to pay half their paycheck on rent. Look at these monthly rates for the bronze level which is the lowest tier on the program.

All the facts were on AOC’s side and the odds and momentum were all in her favor. But while Rep. Ocasio-Cortez continued her prolific tweeting and instagramming spree on myriad other issues as #ForceTheVote was furiously trending on those platforms, she never acknowledged the hashtag or the jagoff comedian with a response. She remained insouciant even as a portion of her 11 million followers from the left tweeted her to step up and challenge the Speaker and her peers in Congress and see if they have the collective balls and nerve to deny health care to hundreds of millions of people during a resurgent pandemic. After all, it’s what she campaigned on in her inspiring run for office in 2018 against the corporatist Joe Crowley. But it wasn’t until pro football player Justin Jackson of the L.A. Chargers called her out for her stunning lack of tenacity on the issue.

Apparently, this message somehow triggered Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. which was shocking after weeks of unlimited profanities and laced urgent messaging directed to her from Jagoff Dore, but quite obvious because Jackson got positive hits and RT’s and got showed up a jock and getting ratio’d on social media is clearly to only way to get her attention. Her justification for remaining tentative about forcing the vote was that the votes weren’t there to force it among her congressional peers and then followed up with a feeble example of what she was certain could be passed, like a $15/hr minimum wage (and she wasn’t even sure about that). For someone that has gone all out to distinguish herself as such an influential and righteous figure on social media, her gateway-splaining to Mr. Jackson was uncharacteristically off-putting and dripped with condescension, which led to blowback attacks from her disappointed and disillusioned followers who were stunned by her betrayal of her promises and her remarkable ignorance of historic progressive change.

AOC, clearly affected by J.J.’s tweet and also by her hard left followers and political twitter personalities, followed this up by resorting to throw shade at Jimmy Dore because of his salty language.

For a woman that didn’t mind to swear to make a point before when she called out a Republican congressman who called her a fucking bitch and used those words on the house floor and in a cream puff interview and fashion shoot in Vanity Fair magazine and most recently while talking shit about a hypothetical run to primary Senator Chuck Schumer, AOC becomes quite an arbiter of speech when those same dirty words are used for an agenda to institute national health care for everyone that has bipartisan agreement from everyone that counts. Really off character from a Bronx resident who at times throws down her provincial street cred and can’t even handle a fucking curse word. That she suddenly equates these words with actual violence is inherently absurd and she kind of comes off like a pussy.

As the days went on, Jimmy kept railing her but AOC kept defensively tweeting her legislating tactics about and against forcing the vote while more progressive pundits, comedians, regular folks got more hip to her blatant gaslighting. But AOC still persisted and strangely still wanted to make the force the vote for Med4All issue all about language and tone on social media. When it clearly got too for the social media icon to temper reasonable retorts to her obsession with words instead of fomenting change to nationalize free health care, she threw one her tweets into the memory hole.

This sudden erasure by the congresswoman is a far cry from what she tweeted a few weeks earlier (and which she didn’t delete). AOC not only lost her political courage but also some of her thin skin. This sure is a far cry from the earnest working girl from the Bronx that was presented in a well produced, brilliant and (seemingly) sincere campaign video she put out. on her way to her stunning victory and immediate national and worldwide fame.

But her insouciance towards her social media followers concerning Medicare For All is worse is that she wasted no time getting the COVID vaccine and did an instagram video chronicling the procedure for it, considering that her elderly and essential worker constituents are having trouble getting inoculated because of the botched rollout by her state of New York and that her other constituents and millions of other people don’t have health insurance because they are unemployed during a resurgent pandemic. Clearly a vote for Nancy Pelosi is also a vote to bankrupt the infected.

But when the opportunity came for the political courage to force the vote on Medicare For All and take the gavel from Speaker Pelosi’s lizard hands, AOC still persisted and she meekly voted to re-elect her, following the lead of her fellow and new Squad members

Even though this resulted in universal condemnation from a wide swath of her base that believed in her, AOC benefited for her fealty to Pelosi and was rewarded with an oversight committee role (along with a few other squad members). Noting how this was a way to push Biden to implement progressive policies, it would seem that AOC now had the ability to influence the House to get the votes on the floor for Medicare For All.

But then January 6th happened. (Which was the day after she got her committee role),the new day of infamy when Ex-President Donald Trump whooped up hundreds of thousands of his MAGA horde to bum rush an under-guarded and under-surveilled U.S. Capitol and after a woman veteran got shot to death and a cop got killed and then roamed the halls and chambers calling out for elected officials as they hid for their lives.

After this, AOC and her fellow committee members and Pelosi  got busy and wrote up new articles of impeachment practically overnight against Trump even though he had 2 weeks left in the oval office. Following the majority vote for impeachment, AOC suddenly recovered her political courage. After posting a rather self-indulgent video that was presented as a town hall  on her Instagram account where she described how she and her fellow legislators were close to being killed, she has been at the forefront for calling for government committees to explore  moderating social media platforms and deprogramming bigots and proclaiming that the government should spare no expense in getting these inherently unconstitutional policies into bills then laws post-haste

Queens Chronicle

“This is not a problem that’s going to go away Jan. 20,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, “What Trump has created doesn’t dissolve overnight.”

She noted that Trump cut funding in 2017 to a Department of Homeland Security program known as “Countering Violent Extremists,” which provides grants to communities to counter radicalism through outreach.

“We have to get that funding right back up and we probably need to double, triple, quadruple or increase funding for these deradicalization programs en masse,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

While she’s right about Trump’s omniscience and his role in the political zeitgeist is not going away soon, all the things she’s advocating for have already manifested with Big Tech Social Media’s banishment of Trump and his followers and web services collusion clampdown to ban a competitive social media platform Parler. As for the need for stronger surveillance for domestic threats, the Patriot Act is already there to pursue them, but it’s looking clear that what AOC and her elected peers are proposing is Patriot Act 2.0 to make organizing and discourse even more surveilled with the assistance of the Big Tech monopolies.

It’s amazing how fast progress can be made when your own house gets invaded, in this case the House Of Representatives and their Senate Chamber co-op neighbors. Also amazing and disturbing that AOC has devolved from a Democrat Socialist to the new Sen. Joe McCarthy, but the signs clearly were there when she was deflecting from progressive people’s tweets and cowardly putting the onus on Jimmy Dore’s videos criticizing her, trying to get her growing brunch liberal/Dem establishment base to back her up in attempts to undermine him and everyone else that was ratioing her. It’s apparent that there is something motivating her to be such an arbiter and growing authority and expert on violent words and proactive legislating when she’s on Jack’s Twitter and Zuckerberg’s Instagram while she’s calling them out to arbitrarily shut down people on their platforms.

But during all this, she clearly has forgotten all about Medicare For All and is more about forcing the vote for a surveillance state dictated by Big Tech monopolies; during a fucking pandemic with new strains of COVID spreading. AOC not only lost her political courage but also her thin skin. Along with this betrayal, she is now sacrificing what’s left of our constitutional liberties. AOC‘s rejection of most of her base at the dawn of a new term in Congress is worrisome to say the least. Sadly, she’s clearly more concerned with her career and her social media celebrity status than for the welfare of her constituents and the rest of millions that are unemployed in this nation. She ran on democratic socialism and has meekly embraced establishment pragmatism. At this rate and at this moment, those Dem votes she claims that aren’t there for Medicare for All won’t come in 2 years or even 100 years.

In 2018, it really did look like she was the real thing and it was truly a miraculous occasion when she won and beat the Democrat machine in Queens and in the Capitol. But the more AOC speaks and tweets, the more her motives in congress looks more like a side hustle to her huger status as a social media influencer and the more she sounds like a spox for tech surveillance than a representative for the people. This is yet another case of a careerist who forgot how she got where she’s at. She went from walking the streets of the Bronx and Queens to the prospect of her eating $20 chocolate popsicles in Nancy Pelosi’s kitchen.

But if AOC thinks bigger clampdowns on social media and deprogramming people are going to protect her and her Democrat establishment allies from another invasion of the U.S. Capitol, she better consider that the next invasion by hundreds of thousands of people will be about genuine demands like wealth redistribution and Medicare For All. Then what the fuck is she going to say when actual violence comes knocking at the doors and busting through the windows again? Will she and her peers lock the doors and hide under the tables and then go on Instagram comparing them to assassins too?

Or will she remember what political courage really means and not words to exploit to pacify voters and then hoodwink and bamboozle them. Words to bait and switch and then wind up switching, rather than fighting.

Your fucking move, congresswoman. Fuck this surveillance and deprogramming bullshit and force the vote for Medicare For All.

Despite The President’s Racist Tirades, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Must Fire Her Chief Of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti

https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fa57.foxnews.com%2Fmedia2.foxnews.com%2FBrightCove%2F694940094001%2F2019%2F03%2F05%2F931%2F524%2F694940094001_6010177054001_6010181983001-vs.jpg%3Fve%3D1%26tl%3D1&f=1

A few weeks ago on the heels of the congressional hearings of the Senate’s border funding bill, a brash man in his 30’s  decided to take to social media and rail against the establishment very old guard and “moderate” Democrats for their support of it. And the social media storm came from the chief of staff of the most pop-centric elected official of our time (and arguably maybe all time since the young Kennedys) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Saikat Chakrabarti. Although he made salient points about the congressional hacks constant cave-ins, he made a boneheaded analogy comparing Speaker Pelosi and the other Dems voting for it to the Dixiecrats of nearly a century ago, which he immediately deleted. This led to Pelosi and her assembled old and rich peers to come down hard on Ocasio-Cortez and also three other women who objected to then rejected the bill, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rahsida Tailb, and Rep. Ayanna Pressely (which AOC’s chief of staff also name dropped in his thread) who are now affectionately branded by the said establishment Dem hacks as “the Squad”, purely to undermine and degrade their popularity, familiarity and whatever ideas to make the country a better place.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez then backed herself into a corner and pulled out a race card implying that Pelosi and all of them were being a bit racist considering the race of her and her aforementioned allies in order to defend Sakit’s deleted tweet. Speaker Pelosi and long-time shady establishment hack Congressman Gregory Meeks then laid on accusations of Ocasio-Cortez being just a figurehead character whose is being controlled by her chief-of-staff.

Even though these are atypical reactions from an electorate body of officials that are cognizant of their weakening status in office and of the growing and widening disdain of them by their constituencies to undermine a young and immensely popular upstart like Ocasio-Cortez, their vindictive accusations of her being dependent on her obnoxious chief of staff does have merit.

But in actuality, it’s not only because of his tweet conflating the current shitty Congress and the shitty racist enabling one back in the day or even wearing a very stupid t-shirt, it’s mostly because he’s a dishonest person and a multi-millionaire feigning to be a revolutionary, trying to become a player in D.C.. He also could have underhanded reasons to personally profit from what on the surface are progressive policies that are being pushed.

Chakrabarti, or Chak as he will be referred to here for the sake of brevity and it sounds better, got filthy rich in Silicon Valley developing a web tool called Mockingbird and participated in Bernie Sanders miraculous yet defeated presidential campaign, followed by hooking up with the current representative of New York’s fighting fourteenth district in Northeast Queens and the South Bronx with the Justice Democrats PAC he co-formed.

But since that victory, he’s been pulling some very shady and non-progressive stunts. A few of which involved some pitiful photo ops with the all-star rookie congresswoman.

Like how he transferred $885,000 from his two PAC’s he formed, the Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats and to two new LLC’s (one of which uses the former name) so he and the congresswoman can evade transparency in how they are charging contractors for services like polling and marketing, how the funding is accrued, who is donating and how much they are donating. The purpose for these former PACs cum companies is to bolster fellow and future Justice Democrats who run for elected office.

A lot of what transpired with the transactions and the conflicts involving AOC and her chief of staff are incredibly convoluted yet almost masterful so to avoid any serious fines or even serious charges. Especially the creative way that Sakrit can work for the congresswoman and earn a taxpayer funded salary while still running these LLC’s.The fact that these are “progressives” involved in dark money transactions and the machinating efforts behind them flies in the face of the Justice Democrats creed of getting money out of politics.

Although after these initial complaints, it seems the machinating is still continuing. Back in April on Earth Day, the congresswoman held an 5k running event in Astoria touting the Green New Deal, the environmental economic program she debuted at Nancy Pelosi’s office in her first day at work in D.C. Thinking that it was for the cause, attendees paid registration fees of $30 and $20 for kids to be in the presence of the representative, but turned out that Ocasio-Cortez and her staff had integrated the event into a campaign fundraiser for her new AOC for Congress PAC. Despite the unethical bait and switch, there was no actual malfeasance because it was written in fineprint on Ocasio-Cortez’s facebook page.

When confronted about this during the run, Alexandra was able to dodge the question while holding a baby. It looked so horribly evasive as something Selena Meyer would pull.

Then there was another event she and her staff arrangedwhere she went back to her roots and tended bar in Jackson Heights to address a raise of the federal minimum wage. Despite the utter lack of disclosure to the press and the public (and her constituents), the optics of this was made worse with the bar she chose to revisit her former trade, a recently opened hipster barsteraunt. The type of establishment that usually is a harbinger for gentrification and a death knell for struggling rent-burdened tenants. Listed on the blackboard menu was a $16 order for the notorious foodie delcicacy avocado toast.

There was not much information about this event, but it would be easy to speculate that it might have been another cleverly plotted fundraiser since attendance to the publicity stunt was tightly regulated to labor union reps and some workers and the only press there was one reporter from the NY Daily News which covered it.

Since Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is more occupied with her current job and actually doing a bang up job and also still maintaining her social media feed, the number one suspect behind these recent stunts has got to be Chief of Staff Chak. Well, now he’s evolved from that role to public enemy number one by the multi-millionaire Democrats in Congress with his twitter outbursts, who were collectively and vicariously through Speaker Pelosi were calling for Chaks head on a pike while calling for his “boss” to shut his ass up and undermining her status at the same time. Even President Trump mouthed off in solidarity defense of Nancy Pants.

Fortunately for Saikat oh Chak, the President has no sense of boundaries. Because following Nancy Pelosi’s degrading insults of Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez as well as Reps. Talib, Omar and Pressely as just four votes that don’t mean shit despite them representing millions of Americans, President Trump became emboldened by Nancy’s dressing down of those women and shot  xenophobia and racist bombs and missives from his faceanus and on social media, degrading his own office and nation even further by telling those four women to go back to horrible places where they came from since they “complain” to much. Never mind with the exception of Omar who is a citizen, the three women are from the U.S.A. and are precisely there because there is still shit wrong with this country according to a lot of voters. (I always wondered if Trump believed that the Bronx was another country). Then Trump quadrupled duced down and decided to target Omar at his second campaign rally (the first was the Farce of July) by ragging on her and waiting patiently for the crowd to chant “Send Her Back”, the sequel to the Hillary refrain “lock her up” (another promised he broke, a lot of progressives actually want that too.)

Despite this lucky distraction, and the inevitable rise in solidarity support for AOC, it still doesn’t absolve the fact that despite Trump’s vicious bloviation Chak is a bad influence and detriment to her status and her future in elected office. That’s if she gets re-elected, because despite her phenomenal celebrity, Chak is still endangering and undermining her ability to represent her district with his own social media and disruptive antics which have obviously carried over from his time as a software creator in Silicon Valley, where the general edict there is to “move fast and break things”. That shit may work in the tech community but it doesn’t work in real life with real people and in politics. His big dumb mouth is also belittling AOC not only as a congresswoman but a woman with independent ideas and visions to make her country great again. It’s like Chak thinks he’s a modern day political Svengali with her and certainly with future candidates he wants to churn from his shady superpacs. While he makes reprehensible poitical reprobates like President Trump look rational and good (until he goes off-script) and gives long time corrupt parasites like congressman Greg Meeks to recruit protege candidate hacks of his own.

She has got to get rid of this guy or her political career and whatever destiny she wants to achieve will be kaput. Otherwise the fact will rise that she is way to dependent on him and that’s not going to go over well in due time, especially with her constituents.

Which means Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has to fire her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti. Or at least he should voluntarily step off.

Hell, he can afford to, he’s a fucking multi-millionaire.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wins 14th District Congressional Primary; Good Riddance Virginia Joe Crowley

https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/1e3c98160aac3b42221ded77ab4289f7429c46e3/c=0-59-5747-3306&r=x329&c=580x326/local/-/media/2018/06/26/USATODAY/USATODAY/636656541175044456-GTY-984863094-101008583.JPG

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez emerges victorious, winning 57% of the vote, trouncing her opponent and longtime political hack Joe Crowley, the alleged “King Of Queens”.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez pulls this off despite no mainstream news media attention since her announcement to run a year ago and raising 3 million dollars less than Crowley for her campaign run. Showing that resorting to soliciting cash and then compromising to defer to the mega-doners is becoming a thing of a sordid recent past since the passage of Citizens United. This is what breaking a glass ceiling sounds like.

 

She brings with her a platform to bring medicare for everyone and to tamp down on the influence of Wall Street predatory-style rampant runaway capitalism in national laws and policies and the defunding of the redundant and sneaky law enforcement agency, Immigration Customs Enforcement.

As for her devastated opponent…

Congressman Joe Crowley, his guitar and the Queens Machine, 1998-2018.

Congratulations again to Congresswoman-elect Ocasio-Cortez. Outstanding campaign. Best candidate in a very long long long time. You and your righteous platform are going to be practically alone at D.C and the swamp is thicker than ever. Then there is that damn aspiring king American Gangster Trump, who thinks the people of Bronx and Queens voted for you because Joe wasn’t “nice to him”

Go get ’em kid.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Deserves Your Vote For Congress, 14th District Of New York

 

https://i2.wp.com/fabiusmaximus.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez-3.jpg?ssl=1

Queens, N.Y.

Today is the day to make genuine social change and get rid of a perpetually useless, avaricious and selfish elected hack in Congressman Joe Crowley. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Bronx born and bred 28-year-old woman and former teacher and waitress is outstandingly more qualified to represent the citizens of Queens and the Bronx.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is super informative not only on local politics and issues but also on international issues as well. Her platform is solid and will truly help this district’s working poor and middle class constituency and could possibly influence progressive legislation in the nation as well. This woman knows income disparity is getting worse and is making it impossible for people to save and advance in life. Most of all, she knows the toxic influence of money from giant corporations and dynastic wealth into politics is the priority substantial threat to democracy.

The latter summarizes the last two decades of existence in Congress of “Virginia” Joe Crowley. His nickname long known in Queens being that he doesn’t live in the borough he was elected and purports to represent. But because of excessive donor cash and nepotism, which could be why the Republican party has never put up a viable candidate to beat him. Or didn’t even bother for that rea$on alone.

So since the right doesn’t want to bother and he is a reliable bipartisan ally when it comes to whoring for one percenter donor cash, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is attacking from the left where Joe has at the last minute embraced because of her public profile reached nationally because of a dynamic campaign ad.

After refusing to acknowledge her for a year and in the winding weeks of spring, Mr. Crowley accepted her request for a debate on television and predictably got fed his overdue lunch.

While he stammered, stuttered, pathetically pandered to his multicultural constituency and at one point accused her of supporting the owning of military grade assault weapons and bumpstocks, she dominated the majority and took advantage of the brief time of the debate (about 19 minutes!) by sticking to the relevant issues and offering legitimate solutions and got in his face about the fallacy he touts about Democrat party solidarity in fighting President Trump’s twitter based policies and ideological stands shaping government and our perception from (former) allies and embracing facism, the established influence of Wall Street and Stadium Banks ghostwriting legislation to further benefit itselves and not doing enough to challenge the gun lobby and the private equity firms that bolster the selling of the weapons he brought up to undermine her.

He has proven to be a heinous bastard and inveterate sellout. No one is more deserving of utter humiliation and destruction, the same he is meting via his fraudulent pose and pathetic pandering as a progressive and his cozy political career as an elected official. He has proven this along with his desperation to hold on to his undeserved position with vile race-baiting by claiming that he couldn’t help being born white.

Beyond all that, Crowley’s money whoring both proves that he will not do a damn thing stopping Trump’s insane and expensive policies, which he hasn’t done already, but is just like him with his duplicitous behavior, brazen lying and of course being a silver spooned fed manchild whose career is derived from good fortune nepotism.

All you have to do is look around, not only in district 14 but throughout the five boroughs and you can see the consequences of Mr. Crowley’s obeisance to his donors and obscene cronyism. Look at all the towers being built which has resulted in the rising of rents, which takes half of your paycheck away to survive having a roof over your head, look out it’s draining services and the toll it’s having on the streets and transit. Look at the thousands of homeless people forced to live in hotels after being disenfranchised from their homes and on the streets thanks to Joe’s complicity with and his major role of government’s part of the Gentrification Industrial Complex. Look at all the heroin junkies in the street and reading about those dying every day from the effects of the real gateway drug, prescriptive painkillers, another industry “Virginia Joe” unquestionably takes money from to influence his legislative duty.

Well, folks are going to have their opinions on Trump, but this is about this opportunistic irrelevant asshole Crowley here, who is exploiting that bastard’s brazen and blatant incompetence and fascism (incompetent fascism?) so he can get re-elected and continue to enrich himself and his lawyer friends and real estate, stadium bank and private equity donors (just like his elected hack peers in the McResistance)

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows that the we, the people make and run this nation and it isn’t going to run efficiently or smoothly when they can’t make the rent or when they are devoid of health care. And it definitely won’t run at all with a shitty version of democracy being dictated by oligarchs and plutocrats being machinated by useful idiots like Joe Crowley.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and her presence in Congress will give a sliver of hope for true reform in DC and this city, which certainly has the gentrification industrial complex shitting in their skivvies being that the Bronx is now targeted for hyperdevelopment and market rate rental fabrication/speculation. If not then this bald asshole will make certain there is absolutely no progress for the working poor, middle class and even scared immigrants in the process to get citizenship in this city and nation and more perks and profits for his dumb ass self.

To paraphrase a bit from Alexandria’s ad, even though she makes it starkly plain at the end, Congressman Joe Crowley only serves and listens to money. He didn’t serve and didn’t listen to the people.

Vote for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Let’s get this jerk out of Congress and destroy the corporate stranglehold and the pernicious influence of the Queens and Democrat Machines.
