‘Squad member’ AOC mocked by both sides after crying and trying to explaining her Iron Dome ‘present’ vote


The following contains editorial which is the opinion of the author. 

WASHINGTON, DC- Congress is full of drama queens, among them Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Adam Schiff (D-CA).

The queen of drama queens however is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who loves to make herself the center of attention and has taken crying on demand to an art form, and a recent vote was no exception, according to Breitbart.  

Last week, AOC (Another Overt Crybaby) decided to vote “present” for a bill that would have provided funds to Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. AOC, as one of the most blatant anti-Semites in Congress (along with her fellow “squad” members) surprised everyone by not voting against the bill.

Her decision to vote “present” instead of in opposition to the legislation was clearly political, since voting no in a state with a large Jewish population would have significantly hurt her aspirations to primary Senate Majority Leader Chuckie Schumer (D-NY) for his seat.

As she often does, Ocasio-Cortez painted herself as a victim because you see, it’s always about her. After the vote, which passed by a vote of 420-9, she portrayed herself as being a victim as she acknowledged she had cried over the “complete lack of regard I often feel our party has to its most vulnerable and endangered members.”

In a video of the vote, Ocasio-Cortez made a point to get herself in position to be on-camera as the final tally of the vote was read. As it was, she “broke down” and had to be “consoled” by another member of Congress, so distraught over the vote which was a fait accompli before it was taken.  

In a letter to constituents, she wrote:

Yes, I wept. I wept at the complete lack of care for the human beings that are impacted by these decisions, I wept at an institution choosing a path of maximum volatility and minimum consideration for its own political convenience.

And I wept at the complete lack of regard I often feel our party has to its most vulnerable and endangered members and communities—because the death threats and dangerous vitriol we’d inevitably receive by rushing such a sensitive, charged, and under-considered vote weren’t worth delaying it for even a few hours to help us do the work necessary to open a conversation of understanding.

CNN confirmed that Ocasio-Cortez was seen “crying on the floor before voting.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s act was panned across the board for her once again making the situation about her, as always.

“This BDS supporter, collaborator in the Squad’s obsessive slanders of Israel, and defender of her colleagues’ anti-semitism, is complaining about the ‘discourse’ around Israel and declaring herself the victim (she’s *always* a victim!) of ‘hateful targeting”

“Are AOC’s sharp political instincts waning? Met Gala now this weird letter that postures one way while failing to explain why she didn’t vote against it.”


“I don’t really believe in electoral politics but @aoc really needs to be primaried. Enough.


“Poor thing. @AOC cried knowing that innocent Israelis (and Palestinians for that that [sic] matter) would be saved by the #IronDome from Hamas. #SorryNotSorry


“No explanation would have been better than this.”


“AOC always makes herself a victim. Ultimately, she voted ‘present’ on apartheid because of a career move. It’s not the first time. She did this same move to fund Capitol Police with $1.9 Billion after initially saying ‘no.’ If your [sic] can’t handle doing your job, get the fuck out!”


“That’s a whole lot of words to say that you are a coward who didn’t have the courage to stand up for the Palestinian people when it mattered most.”


Of course, some of these tweets are dead wrong, since Iron Dome is a defensive missile system which intercepts and destroys short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from a distance of between 2.5 to 43 miles away.

Ocasio-Cortez even drew criticism from far-left Democratic state media, MSNBC.

Fresh off her stunt at the $30,000 a ticket Met Gala with a several thousand-dollar dress that said, “Tax the Rich” from a designer who is a tax scofflaw, her ‘present” vote on Iron Dome seemed to show her as more of a sell out than a true “progressive.”

They referred to her vote as a “tactical mess,” noting that her failure to take a position on Iron Dome suggested she was more concerned about politics than integrity.

MSNBC noted that her last-minute switch from no to present is not likely to convince pro-Israelis that she is suddenly a supporter of the state. As they said, she basically took “no position at all, except one of emotional distress.”

They also noted her vote could develop cracks inside the “squad,” with Omar and Tlaib slamming the idea of funding Iron Dome for as they said, “Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians,” while calling for consistency on America’s human rights stand. Most progressives voted no on the bill, including most of the “squad” full of unhinged leftists.

Clearly this inept legend in her own mind (what exists of it) has her eyes on higher office, in the short-term Schumer’s Senate seat. So her track record on Israel will be closely watched and her voting present simply shows she has no compass and when push comes to shove, she doesn’t take a stand.

MSNBC closed, noting that Ocasio-Cortez seems to be in the “midst of a political identity crisis.” They note she has long had no problem with going against “moderate” Democrats while supporting them on some “defensible” issues. They said that whether she gets “praise” or “elicits fury,” she had always appeared “sure footed.”

“This time, she seems to have slipped into a political no man’s land, and it’s not clear where she’s trying to go.”

What she is clearly is a drama queen…and an attention whore.

The following article contains editorial commentary which is the opinion of the author. 

NEW YORK CITY, NY – It is hard to imagine that a politician from New York would call the war in Afghanistan “immoral,” but that is exactly what Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Thursday evening.

The war in Afghanistan was triggered after the horrific attacks on September 11, 2001, when al Qaeda terrorists hijacked and crashed commercial airliners into the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon.

The heroic passengers and crew of another plane, Flight 93, fought back against the hijackers and crashed the aircraft in Pennsylvania, preventing yet another strike on Washington D.C.

In response to those attacks, then-President George W. Bush demanded the Taliban turn over al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden., who planned the attack from Afghan soil. When the Taliban refused, the United States invaded the country to hunt him down and prevent terrorists from striking from Afghan soil again.

Despite the history of why the war in Afghanistan was necessary, Ocasio-Cortez told MSNBC anchor Joy Reid that the death of 13 U.S. Marines in twin blasts outside Kabul airport Thursday was “the human cost of war”:

“Terrorism happened here on January 6th. We are seeing in Afghanistan right now a terrorist attack today that killed 13 of our troops, Marines and a member of the Navy.

But we’re also trying to get as many people out as possible. Talk about raising the cap, how can it be done, why should be done?

“To speak to today’s attack, what happened is just an absolute and utter travesty. These Marines that have passed away, 13 now, as well as 60 Afghans that died in the explosions, I mean, this is the human cost of war.”

The war was waged for the 2,977 people killed on 9/11, including the 2,763 New York victims including 343 firefighters and medics, 23 NYPD officers, and 37 Port Authority police officers.

It was also fought to prevent future Americans from dying in terror strikes launched from Afghanistan.

Ocasio-Cortez does not think the lost Americans were worth the cost, and said the United States is now indebted to the Afghan people:

“This is what makes war immoral. When it comes to the devastation that we have seen in Afghanistan, the United States plays a role.

We have a responsibility. In order to carry out and in order to make good on the role that we have played in this violence we have a responsibility to make a home for the people whose lives have been upended by interventionist U.S. foreign policy.

Ocasio-Cortez is calling on the Biden administration to accept at least 200,000 Afghan refugees into the country to make amends.

“So, as a result, I’m proud to have co-wrote a letter with Representative Barbara Lee to ask and urge the Biden administration to, as they set their refugee quotas, to make it no less than 200,000 in the upcoming year.”

Ocasio-Cortez was born and raised in New York City, and she was a pre-teen when the attacks on the World Trade Center occurred. It is difficult to understand how someone who lived through those agonizing and angering days could take such a callous position, especially someone who is supposed to represent the people.

Perhaps she does not recall the vivid anger and despair that gripped the nation following the attacks, and the calls of American citizens to hold those who planned the attacks to account. Perhaps she should watch a video of then-President George Bush telling reporters:

“I want justice. There’s an old poster out West that said, ‘Wanted, dead or alive.”’

Or perhaps she should watch the iconic, impromptu speech given by President Bush as he stood on the rubble at Ground Zero and told rescue workers:

“I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people – and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”


She should definitely listen to the lyrics of Darryl Worley’s song titled, “Have You Forgotten?” In the song, he asked the question AOC needs to answer:

“Have you forgotten how it felt that day

To see your homeland under fire-

And her people blown away

Have you forgotten when those towers fell-

We had neighbors still inside

Going through a living hell-

And you say we shouldn’t worry ’bout Bin Laden

Have you forgotten-

I’ve been there with the soldiers

Who’ve gone away to war-

And you can bet that they remember

Just what they’re fighting for.”


The voters remember, and hopefully will remember when Ocasio-Cortez said the war in Afghanistan was “immoral” and the death of U.S. Marines were “the human cost of war.”

Here we go again: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tries to use a really big word to call for the abolition of US prisons

July 28, 2021

The following article contains editorial commentary which is the opinion of the author. 

CLEVELAND, OH- Hey, at least she knows how to use big words!

We’re still trying to figure out how this amateur former bartender continues to get airtime on CNN and MSNBC (we know, that’s a rhetorical question) but her latest absurd statement this past weekend in Ohio has some scratching their heads.

We are of course talking about resident Congressional airhead, former bartender and current New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). This past weekend while campaigning for another far-left loon in Ohio, Nina Turner (not to be confused with Tina Turner), Ocasio-Cortez called for elimination of prisons. She even used a big word, “carceral” system to describe it, according to Breitbart News and other outlets.

Turner is looking to replace now-Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Marcia Fudge who vacated the 11th Ohio Congressional District to assume that position.

Turner is a wanna be future member of the so-called “Squad,” the group of far-left neo-Marxist Democrats including Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and others.

At the rally for Turner, the annoying Ocasio-Cortez said, “I want to abolish our carceral system,” complaining that the system is “designed to trap black and brown men.” In reality, it only “traps” people who commit crime, but we digress.

She continued, “I want justice. I want peace. And I want prosperity.”

Peace? While crime runs out of control unabated in cities run by her party due to their criminal justice policies, she wants peace? Prosperity? The only ones in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago and New York who are becoming prosperous are the criminals ripping off stores unabated due to weak-on-crime prosecutors and judges. Pretty good timing to ask for an end to prisons.

Turner is evidently no stranger to the far-left of the Democrat Party, having served as a top adviser to Crazy Bernie Sanders, the self-proclaimed socialist and twice-failed presidential candidate.

Fox News said AOC compared Turner’s campaign as the fight between grassroots and corporate politics.

“This isn’t about Nina versus any opponent; this is about the people versus big money,” she said.

“This is a deep blue seat. It’s a deep blue seat,” AOC continued. “Districts like Ohio’s 11th should be leading the country on issues. They are opportunities, they are very rare opportunities, very rare districts like this one that can take and be visionary.”

After Ocasio-Cortez’s insane statement, Mike Berg, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee said in a statement:

‘”Every vulnerable Democrat who refused to return AOC’s campaign cash should tell voters whether they agree with her proposal to abolish prisons and release convicted criminals into our communities.”

Berg’s statement comes as Republicans try to tie vulnerable Democrats into the far-left radical fringe of the Democrat Party, especially as polling indicates an overwhelming majority of Americans are concerned about the increase in crime.

In April, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign sent $5,000 directly into campaign coffers for many of the vulnerable Democrats in order to help them boost their fundraising. This was done without the respective campaigns’ consent.

Breitbart noted that AOC’s campaign got the wire transfer information and account numbers from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), who as noted did not check with the members themselves.

Some of the Democrats began giving the money back, not wanting to be tied into AOC which they believed would be politically damaging to them to an extent that it wasn’t worth the campaign donation.

In the Ohio district’s primary, Turner’s biggest opponent is local Democratic Party chairwoman Shontel Brown, a moderate. There are a number of others seeking to advance to the election.

“The contrast in this race couldn’t be clearer,” said Brown’s campaign manager in response to AOC’s comments, according to WJW.

“Shontel Brown is the only candidate who from day one can work with the Biden administration and our house majority to deliver good-paying jobs, affordable healthcare, and affordable prescription drugs to northeast Ohio.”

This is nothing new for Ocasio-Cortez, who has previously made the same demand.

In 2019 in response to a black man being jailed for 10 days for missing jury duty, the far-leftist said the country needed to have a “real conversation” about “prison abolition.”

“Mass incarceration is our American reality,” she tweeted. “It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”

In a follow up tweet, she said, “A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don’t belong in them.” She also made an absurd comment about someone drinking out of a toilet. Somehow that seems like a crock. 


AOC…such a drama queen.
