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.

      Well said hopefully getting rid of AOC will slow the destruction of America until we can get rid of anti American Pelosi, Schumer, Shifty Schiff, and Humpty Dumpty.

      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.

Psaki Responds To Biden Calling Reporter A ‘Stupid Son Of A B****’

Published

Jen Psaki

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary responded to Democrat President Joe Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” for asking about the inflation crisis.

“The President, the President called Peter, and [Peter Doocy] confirmed this, so this is only why I’m speaking to this, and if you have private conversations with the president, I will assure you I’m not going to convey that on your behalf,” Psaki said. “But Peter spoke to this, the President called him, he conveyed to him that it was nothing personal man and also acknowledged that all of you are going to ask him a range of questions. So I think that speaks for itself.”

Biden called Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” after Doocy asked if the inflation crisis would hurt the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Do you think inflation is a political liability for midterms?” Doocy asked.

“It’s a great asset, more inflation,” Biden responded. “What a stupid son of a b****.”

Doocy reacted to the incident in multiple interviews, revealing that Biden called him afterward and told him “it’s nothing personal, pal,” but Biden notably never apologized.

“When the president calls from the Oval Office and he says ‘it’s nothing personal, pal.’ And you know, I wasn’t particularly upset about what had happened anyway,” Doocy said on the Guy Benson Show. “I think that that’s enough just to kind of put it behind us. And I know now how much attention people pay to off-color comments like that from the president. But I think that he wanted to just clear the air and he wanted to address it, and he wanted to make sure that he didn’t that I didn’t think he was talking to me in a malicious way. And so it was a nice call. We talked for a couple of minutes right after I did Brett Baer show last night.”

“So the word ‘sorry’ was not expressed,” Guy said.

“It was not. But that’s OK,” Doocy replied.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.
