after discovery of conspiracy/coverups by some at FBI, hate for Trump; new radicals in Congress & apparent unwillingness//ability of DEM leadership to reign in//rebuke//penalize these radicals--has the DEM Party leadership been comprimised by some foreign entity ? it appears these new radicals are calling the shots, not Pelosi//Schumer--it all is very scary to me for our Democracy
Face it, the younger generation likes those radical ideas. They don't see anything wrong with socialism, because they believe it favors "everyday people"... not realizing that these aren't new ideas - Hitler, Mao, Stalin all promised those things too - and we know how those turned out. First step to Dictatorship.
No, they don't know those socialist/communist horrows turned out. The young I have talked only know what they are promised. I tell them about the poverty, the oppression and the millions and millions of people slaughtered and they call me a liar! It is amazing how the left has covered this up.
Hitler was a Fascist, Mao was a Marxist, Stalin was a totalitarian Nationalist posing as a Marxist...none of them were Socialists. Look at waht they did and what they espoused, not at what they have been labeled.
Many of the elected folks in Washington (and elsewhere) are puppets and actors. That is why President Trump is hated by so many...he's not a puppet. Even the effort to portray Russia and Putin as his puppeteers has turned to poppycock and hogwash.
AOC and her ilk may be just actors and puppets, but the danger they and their handlers pose can not be underestimated.
I watched the entire video and my initial reaction was to be skeptical. The primary reason for this is that if these wizards behind the curtain are so brilliant how could they allow Occasional Cortex to say some of the profoundly ill informed and stupid things she says, to ask the incredibly insipid and stupid questions, etc. I will say I watched a debate between this Uygr dude and Ben Shapiro and he was equally profoundly inane so I guess if he is the "brains" behind their strategy then it's entirely possible.
As an example, I refer you to her questioning of the CEO of Wells Fargo about their being liable for putting children in cages, climate change and spills from pipelines they participated in funding. I suppose another possible explanation is that they consider the American public in general and Millennials and younger voters in particular to be equally stupid and uneducated, or more properly miseducated. The more I see and hear from these young people the more I think they may be onto something.
I am of the opinion that she along with the other two Frosh reps that seem to get so much attention are actually puppets of the GOP to ensure they retake the House and keep the Presidency.
Some of her comments remind me of Trump and his less than brillant tweets and statements. This exchange with Cohen may well be Trump's worst nighmare. The New York Department of Insurance is investigating it and, if true, may well end up as fraud. I wonder what Trump thinks of her now?
Ocasio-Cortez: I want to ask a little bit about your conversation with my colleague from Missouri about asset inflation. To your knowledge, did the president ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company?
Ocasio-Cortez: Who else knows that the president did this?
Cohen: Allen Weisselberg, Ron Lieberman and Matthew Calamari.
Inflating assets for insurers is not a crime as far I know....or at least I hope not because it is very common in business. All it does is increase your rates due to overinsurance. And it is up to the insurer to audit it so they don't undervalue assets and get stuck paying for more than they got premium for. And Cohen said he did this to inflate his total value to make him look more wealthy. So this is really all about his ego, which we all know is important to him.
More omoinous is if he inflated assets to get loans. So Occasional Cortex still was on the wrong track but at least closer to being able to score some political points to the extent that any Trump voter cares whether he's worth $4B or $9B......which I doubt.
