WASHINGTON – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was unable to work Friday after being traumatized from an incident involving a fellow politician. A day before, AOC had accused Senator Ted Cruz of trying to have her murdered during the unrest at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Whether it’s climate change, economics, or anything Republican-related, AOC is considered the drama queen of all drama queens. She accused Ted Cruz’s words of making her a marked woman, when Cruz did nothing of the sort. Still, she pretends to be on edge.
On Friday morning, as Senator Cruz cruised into the Capitol parking lot in his 2008 Chrysler LeBaron, his car backfired. Cortez and several of her aides screamed and hit the ground. According to witnesses, Cruz was laughing his ass off in his car at the sight.
The shaken congresswoman, unable to work the rest of the day, was only able to tweet after the incident. “Sen. Cruz tried to shoot me with his car today. As much as I would like to work with him on issues we can agree on, I refuse to do so with someone who continues targeting me.”
Cruz responded, saying, “Give me a break. My car backfired. The engine timing is off, maybe a cracked distributor cap, I don’t know. I need to get it checked out, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. Good lord, where does she come up with this stuff?”
At first, Cortez thought she had narrowly escaped sniper fire, like Hillary Clinton imagined she had. But after talking with aides, she determined Cruz had tried to shoot her with his car.
“I don’t know what, like, backfiring is, but I’m going to call a gun store and ask them. If I can save even one drama queen from being the victim of a backfire, it’s worth it.”
When told that backfiring was the by-product of a combustible engine, she first said she didn’t know that cars were a type of gun. Then, she insisted this is another reason to rid our world of fossil-fueled engines. AOC claimed that future engines, powered by flower petals, would never backfire.
On Friday, former President Donald Trump’s legal team went on the offensive, using a strategy many conservatives have recommended.
They argued that Trump did not use any inciting language on January 6th, before the breach of the Capitol, but that numerous members of Congress have done so repeatedly over the past two years. Then they played lots and lots of videos.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the 2016 election was “hijacked.” She has also called the president both an “imposter” and a “traitor.” And she recently referred to her Republican colleagues in the House as “the enemy within.”
Speaker Pelosi never called the violent left-wing anarchists who conducted a sustained assault on a federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, “insurrectionists.” Instead, she called the federal law enforcement officers protecting the building “storm troopers.”
When violent mobs destroyed public property, she shrugged it off saying, ”People will do what they do.”
In one instance in 2018, referring to anger over migrant children being separated from their parents, she told reporters, “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend.”
She also said on multiple occasions, “You have to be ready to throw a punch.”
Other Democrat leaders have followed her example.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), during a 2020 appearance on MSNBC, said, “There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”
Vice President Kamala Harris encouraged people to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which bailed out defendants charged with murder, violent felonies, and sex crimes.
President Joe Biden and a number of senators spoke to crowds on multiple occasions about beating Trump up.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) objected repeatedly to 2017 electoral results, something that supposedly is a threat to democracy if Republicans do it.
The point clearly went over Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s (D-CT) head. Afterwards, he told reporters, “They’re trying to draw a dangerous and distorted equivalence. I think it is plainly a distraction from Donald Trump inviting the mob to Washington.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that the prosecution’s case presented “virtually no argument” on how Trump’s conduct meets the legal standard of incitement. “The House managers focused a great deal on the president, using words like ‘fight or fight like hell.’ Well if that constitutes incitement, then every single political candidate in America is guilty of incitement.Because I guarantee you all 100 senators in that chamber have stood on the stump and said we need to fight or fight like hell.”
CANCEL CULTURE: MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano, who starred in the Star Wars show “The Mandalorian“, has been fired for comparing criticism of conservatives to the oppression of Jews in Nazi Germany.
But, unlike the Left which eats its own, the Right takes care of its own. The Daily Wire has picked up Carano with an offer to let her develop, produce and appear in an upcoming film.
Carano says, “I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
Ben Shapiro said, “This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob.”
CATHOLIC: [15:37] – CINO Pelosi says that promoting abortion and slandering pro-lifers is “for the children.” EWTN interviews Pelosi’s archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, about his criticism of Pelosi. “Killing children in the mother’s womb is evil.”
In related news, Catholic University of America (CUA) chaplain has come under fire for pressuring the university’s Students for Life chapter to cancel its invitation to pro-life activist Abby Johnson. The CUA College Republicans group hosted the event instead, while the pro-life group’s president resigned “because of how I was pressured, against my conscience, by the University Chaplain in his capacity as adviser.”
COVID-19: The CDC is now recommending “intubation kits” at vaccine sites. Know why? Probably because the VAERS reports include many cases of anaphylactic shock so severe that multiple doses of epinephrine were not sufficient to restore breathing and intubation and ventilation were required.
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, M.D., a world-renowned microbiologist living in Germany says masks and social distancing are unwarranted, while the COVID-19 vaccine is “downright dangerous.” His book, Corona: False Alarm?, gives the facts and figures.
DEMOCRAT vs. REPUBLICAN: A data mining geek has found that the best predictor of voting trends, bar none, is marital state.
In the presidential race, married men voted 56% Trump – 42% Biden, while married women voted 52% Trump – 48% Biden. Married couples voted for Trump at a higher rate in 2020 than they had in 2016.
While it is true that conservatives are more likely not only to get married, but also to stay married, researchers suspect that getting married tends to make couples become more conservative, particularly if they have children.
EATING THEIR OWN: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the son of former U.S. attorney general Robert F. Kennedy, nephew of former president John F. Kennedy, and reliable left-wing Democrat, has fallen prey to the Left’s ever-changing, yet always-rigid standards.
RFK Jr. is the founder of Children’s Health Defense (CHD). In recent years, he has been an outspoken critic of harmful vaccines. Too bad for him that the Left’s speech police are currently pimping the COVID-19 vaccine. Because he posted negative information to his Instagram, the platform has banned him.
At the time his account was removed, he had over 800,000 followers.
MASKS: Campaign Joe said he would mandate 100 days of mask-wearing; now he’s saying a whole year. Meanwhile, the science shows that, outside of a medical setting, masks make no statistical difference in case rates.
Iowa’s Republican Governor Kim Reynolds has lifted the state’s mandate on masks, physical distancing and size limits on gatherings, urging Iowans to make their own decisions.
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: For the second time in two years, seven-year-old Skylar’s dad stood her up. But this time, her 11-year-old brother Christian was prepared to step in. He said, “She deserves to know that a man can keep his word and that she’s really special.”
His mom posted her pride in her son on Facebook saying, “Just know that I’m raising someone a GREAT HUSBAND one day.” Yes. And a great DAD too!
SUICIDE REGRET: Watch this! [10:10] – In the four seconds he had between stepping off the Golden Gate Bridge and hitting the water, Kevin Hines called out to God to save him.
“I thought I had to die, and I was wrong.”
As he struggled in the water, he prayed not to drown. To his amazement, and the amazement of onlookers, a sea lion kept him afloat, pushing him above the water until the Coast Guard arrived.
A year to the day after his suicide attempt, Kevin’s father father took him back to the Golden Gate Bridgeand encouraged him to throw a flower in the water. When he did so, a sea lion popped above the water.
ZOMBIE IMPEACHMENT: The same Democrats who have repeatedly encouraged political violence on the part of their own followers have acknowledged that President Trump did urge the “Save America” rally to march peacefully.
BUT, he only said it ONCE in the whole 11,000 word speech! And he, like, said “fight” or “fighting” TWENTY times. Oh. Em. Gee.
GRAMMY NOTES: Our Texans had freezing rain for half a day straight! Army Princess sent a bunch of photos from their yard. The left one is a rubber tree plant, while the right is a close-up of the lawn.
My sil is such a sweetheart. They have a bird nesting in the rafters of their covered deck. He aimed his grill at her and turned it on low to provide some warmth during the frigid temperatures.
