New Census May Mean AOC is O-U-T

Published

AOC

After the release of the most recent census, New York’s Congressional delegation will be losing one seat after the 2022 election. Rumors have swirled before about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez losing her seat, but it was because she “was at such strong odds with Pelosi and other establishments Dems” according to WayneDupree.com.

Town Hall reported blue states are losing seats and red states are gaining them:

It was a rather alarming piece of news regarding congressional reapportionment. Blue states are losing seats and red states are gaining them. The Trump bastions are increasing their clout in Congress. How dare people move to states that are friendlier to their pocketbooks. This is happening and New York is about to lose a congressional seat. Who will get the axe? Will it be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

We’ve discussed how her biggest enemy isn’t Republicans, it’s the New York Democratic Party who aren’t too keen to her brand of politics. She might be eyeing launching a primary challenge against Chuck Schumer. She could run for governor. For Ocasio-Cortez, the sky is the limit, and while she might challenge Schumer anyway, keeping her district from the shredder could entice her to sit out 2022, maybe.

Axing her district would release her into the wild where she’s more unpredictable. She very well could run in a neighboring district and win. Who knows? But why is this happening in New York? Why are they losing a seat?

The New York Times reports:

New York’s congressional delegation will shrink by one seat after the 2022 election…but the state came excruciatingly close to snapping an eight-decade streak of declining representation in Washington: it was 89 residents short, to be precise…

It was the narrowest margin by which a state lost a seat in the modern era, according to census data. The next closest call was in 1970 when Oregon fell short by 231 residents…

And it means that New York’s congressional delegation will continue a steady decline in size that began in the 1940s when the state boasted 45 members of the House. Now it will have only 26.

    AOC, and the rest of her peers in the House, have been socialist missles fired at the heart of the Congress to foment a disruptive narrative.

    Overwhelming numbers of Americans, are not aware of the consequences that these
    politically weaponized Representatives bring, especially bolsteted by the Fake News Media.

    This propagandistic association is disquised as the saviors of democracy, and champions of oppressed minorities.

    It’s all BS, and thanks to Leo 2.0, his credible messages carry hopes and dreams for the future of the American people of all colors.

      Great comment, Slideglide.
      I hope many people read it (Liberals) and it causes them to start thinking for themselves and not blindly follow the directive to snap into line with the socialist agenda.

    Is there any way she can move up the leaving date. She is dumb, dishonest, hates our country and one of the biggest liars in the Democratic party. I hope she takes her little gang with her. Let it be true. the Bobby 🙂

    She may be what she is, but you have to remember, the people of her district voted to re-elect her. If you think she is bad, then you must point the finger that those who allowed her to be re-elected. The question, is her District made up of Socialists (communists)?

    We can only hope and pray this evil ???? wombat get’s completely out of politics and gets exorcised. New York is already a mess, no need for her to obtain higher office for that State. Maybe she can be the Senator of Puerto Rico someday.????

    I hope it’s her that gets cut out. of CONgress. If she took the jab maybe we won’t have to wait til 2022. With a little luck she got a little extra in her dose. It would be ironic if she is the one cut. The reason so many are leaving NYC is because of policies her and her ilk have done. She and that dipshit mayor and dipshit gov. are the reasons many have left.

    Occasional Cortex is a Marxist shill 99 bricks short of a load.

    Raised with $$$$ & no solid foundational values, she seems happy to suck Marx’s tit & pretend there’s gushing goody with every suck when it’s actually poison that will generously destroy her, too.

    No insight. No foresight. No Constitutional understanding or appreciation. No understanding of history or of human nature.

    She certainly has no appreciation of our Judeo/Christian heritage and values and the solid cement they have been to our founding & functioning.

    She’s also delusionally arrogant enough to think that her empty poisonous blather is meaningful and important.

    She may titilate low information voters. She may cause the talking heads in the media to salivate or get tingles down their legs. But she’s bad news up one side & down the other to anyone with significant cranial neurons still functioning.

    She’d do better to confess her ignorant idiocy, repent for being such a plague on the Republic & retire from public life. Maybe she could still tend bar. Her customers would be about as pickled as she is.

Reporters Want Answers on Biden’s Persistent Cough Which Consistently Interrupts Briefings

Published

on

Joe Biden

On Thursday, President Joe Biden’s persistent cough, which forced him to pause and clear his throat several times, has the public concerned. The noticeable coughing fit occurred during a speech about tax hikes. Soon after, reporters questioned White House press secretary Jen Psaki about Biden’s health.

NBC News reporter Kelly O’Donnell addressed the matter head-on. “Many of us were in the East Room watching the president, we’ve seen him on many occasions where he had a repeated cough. What is the situation with that cough and is it a concern?”

Psaki snapped back, “It’s not a concern.” She added, “We have a doctor who travels with him, obviously who checks in if it is ever warranted, and certainly that continues to be the case, as it has been since the beginning of his presidency.”

O’Donnell followed up, “Is there an explanation for why he coughs so frequently in situations like that?” Psaki again downplayed the concern, responding, “I don’t think it’s an issue of concern. I think there is a range of reasons why we may need to clear our throat or we may have a little light cold, and that’s certainly something that presidents, elected officials, reporters, spokespeople can confront.”

There is only so much longer the White House can ignore the pressing concern. Even #Bidencough became a popular social media hashtag. In Thursday’s same briefing, Psaki was asked about when Biden would receive a full physical examination, as his mental acuity has been called into question for years.

“I know this is an understandable question. I don’t have an update. He will get one soon. And when he does, we will make sure you all are aware of it and get the information,” Psaki condescendingly responded.

The New York Post reports the recent times Biden’s cough has been problematic:

After he coughed and was hoarse while speaking in December after the Electoral College confirmed his victory in the 2020 election, aides said he was suffering from a slight cold.

More recently, the president hacked at several points during a speech Monday in California in support of Gov. Gavin Newsom in the recall election, causing him to apologize and even pause to take a sip of water.

During the presidential campaign, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, told the Wall Street Journal that Biden is fit to serve as president, but also noted that he is being treated for high cholesterol, acid reflux disease and seasonal allergies.

Acid reflux often forces him to clear his throat, O’Connor said.

“This may also contribute to occasional cough and sinus congestion,” O’Connor wrote in a medical statement. “He has received an endoscopy to rule out any more significant disease.”

Clinton Campaign Attorney Indicted For Lying To FBI In Trump-Russia Investigation

Published

on

Hillary Clinton

An attorney who represented Hillary Clinton’s most recent failed presidential campaign in 2016 was indicted on Thursday for allegedly lying to FBI officials, as part of U.S. Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s investigation of supposed ties between Russia and former President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Michael Sussmann, a partner with Perkins Coie who also represented the Democratic National Committee in connection with Russia’s hack of the organization, is accused of making false statements during a Sept. 19, 2016 meeting with former FBI General Counsel James Baker,” Reuters reported. “This marks the second criminal case Durham has filed so far since former Attorney General William Barr tapped him in 2019 to investigate U.S. officials who probed the Trump-Russia contacts.”

According to the New York Times, Biden administration Attorney General Merrick B. Garland has the authority to overrule Durham but declined to.
“Donald J. Trump and his supporters have long accused Democrats and Perkins Coie — whose political law group, a division separate from Mr. Sussmann’s, represented the party and the Hillary Clinton campaign — of seeking to stoke unfair suspicions about Mr. Trump’s purported ties to Russia,” the New York Times
reported. “The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Among other things, investigators have examined whether Mr. Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.”

“According to the indictment, Sussmann ‘lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI’ when he met one-on-one with FBI General Counsel James Baker,” the Daily Mail explained. “That prompted to Baker to assume he was acting merely as a ‘good citizen’ rather than as a ‘paid advocate or political operative.’ He stated falsely that he was not doing the work ‘for my client,’ according to the indictment. Sussmann had handed over three ‘white papers’ as well as computer files containing evidence of the reported secret channel.”
