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.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
