Benny Johnson took a microphone and camera to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s district to find out just how fond they are of socialism (RIGHT SCOOP):
(UPDATE BELOW THE “FOLD”) Acting the part of a radical socialist:

- SO yes she thinks the Congress changed the Constitution to prevent FDR from getting re-elected… two years after he died.
Everyone focused on this aspect of it. However, if you watch it…
According to AOC, Congress amended the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected:
“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt dd not get reelected.”

…what I took from it is that this Commie wants to be elected (or have some other tyrant commie elected) leader for life… like a Stalin, Mao, Castro, or Chavez. I don’t think it’s cute or funny.
The second thing I wish to note from this past weekend is the civil war in the Democrat Party. Here is a partial introduction via the WASHINGTON EXAMINER, and what the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is trying to do is stop a casting call socialist from getting elected:
TWITCHY says — “Ha! We hope the DNC enjoys the company of their party’s newest star.”

Remarks on the green new deal… more at THE DAILY SIGNAL:
Mark Dice hilariously opines:
- While I like their rants (Paul Watson, Mark Dice, and others) and these commentaries hold much truth in them, I do wish to caution you… he is part of Info Wars/Prison Planet network of yahoos, a crazy conspiracy arm of Alex Jones shite. Also, I bet if I talked to him he would reveal some pretty-crazy conspiratorial beliefs that would naturally undermine and be at-odds-with some of his rants. Just to be clear, I do not endorse these people or orgs.
Larry Elder takes Media Matter to the tool shed and excoriates the headline grasping leftist org:
- Fox News guest co-host claims that FDR’s New Deal created the Great Depression (MEDIA MATTERS)
In this opening segment of his show, Larry sets forth a strong case for his view in 8-minutes.
I wanted to also have the first 2-hours of his show included in another upload (they were excellent), but alas, I am too tired and am working long hours. (I wish I could do this for a living! 870AM should have their own YouTube with uploads like National Review and other orgs.) Here are two articles mentioned during the show:
Bob Frantz (TWITTER) fills in for Hugh Hewitt and reads a 1989 Associated Press article about the dire warnings from the United Nations giving us a decade to turn it around.
- “1989 FLASHBACK: U.N. Predicts Climate Disaster by 2000 if Global Warming Wasn’t Stopped” (BIG LEAGUE POLITICS)
Good segment – I added the “Goreacle” video and the full “Kat Timpf” segment from Greg Gutfeld’s show. (Related, “Occasional-Cortex Called A ‘Pompous Little Twit‘”) For more failed predictions see my: “CLIMATE MANTRAS“
John and Ken had me cracking-up today reading from a New York Post article and Patrick Moore’s Twitter.
Even small airports bring in the $$$$$
Here is just a snippet of the economic impact of New York airports:
…In total, New York’s commercial airports, which includes LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty International and New York Stewart International, flew 138 million passengers in 2018, a 3.8 percent increase.
LaGuardia — based in Cortez’s district – employs 12,000 individuals directly and as many as 136,000 indirectly, totaling $6.8 billion in wages and $18.7 billion in economic activity for New York and New Jersey, according to data from the New York Port Authority…
…Passenger operations at JFK International Airport have an estimated impact of $30.4 billion on the region, while LaGuardia Airport had a $11.2 billion impact and Newark Liberty International Airport was at $16.5 billion.
Cargo at JFK alone is an $8.8 billion bump.
To handle the massive number of travelers and goods, JFK employs 38,232 workers. Newark employs 20,268 followed by LaGuardia at 11,977….
Think of all the jobs lost, continued revenue, taxes, and the like if Cortez gets her way:
ANDREW CUOMO’S Press Room:
More from the CALIFORNIA POLICY CENTER:
I am amazed at the illiterate nature of politicians who think money is a zero sum game. That wealth is not created through investment. What Ocasio-Cortez apparently doesn’t or won’t understand is that there is no $3 billion out there that New York could spend… there would have been 24-billion-to-27-billion to spend after the 3-billion in tax-breaks — on subways, infrastructure, and the like. But now there is zero. Zilch. Nada. This deal would have created roughly 25,000 well-paying jobs. The residual job creation was estimated to be an additional 67,000 jobs. Wow. See more here:

NATIONAL REVIEW’S article from July of 2018 seems fitting:
This is more of some commentary by Hugh Hewitt on The Green New Deal. Hewitt makes the point that this isn’t socialism, but Communism. Jonathan Swan of Axios (TWITTER) joins Hugh in discussing the utter lack of thought involved in this New Green Deal.
Hugh Hewitt reads through the Green New Deal and has some fun time with the grammar and lunacy of the text and ideas. I include TARZANA JOE’S (below) poem dealing with the New Green Deal. Long but informative.
