Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested on Thursday that there was a vast “far-right” conspiracy aimed at destroying her that includes a “dark-money internet operation” and a cable news “propaganda machine.”

According to Ocasio-Cortez’s tinfoil hat theory, the alleged culprits are “dedicated to maligning” her and “stoking national division.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s latest crazed idea comes after a new Quinnipiac poll was released on Thursday that led to multiple unflattering headlines for the 29-year-old former bartender.

Far-left Vox wrote a piece titled: “Conservative media’s war on AOC is hammering her poll numbers.”

“A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday morning found that 23 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the member of Congress, while 36 percent had an unfavorable view — a -13 overall approval rating,” Vox wrote. “This new poll isn’t a one-off finding. Three prior surveys — one in January from Morning Consult, one in February from Fox, and a third in mid-March from Gallup — all found that more Americans had negative views of AOC than had positive ones.”

Ocasio-Cortez, who has a history of lashing out at her abysmal poll numbers, did not respond any better to this latest report.

“It’s almost as though there is a directed + concerted far-right propaganda machine with a whole cable news channel, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by the Mercers et al dedicated to maligning me & stoking nat’l division, reported on by @JaneMayerNYer or something,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez has been widely criticized throughout the media for her policies, specifically the “Green New Deal,” which experts have estimated will cost $93+ trillion.

“The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive,” wrote the American Action Forum in its analysis of Ocasio-Cortez’s plan. “Its further expansion of the federal government’s role in some of the most basic decisions of daily life, however, would likely have a more lasting and damaging impact than its enormous price tag.”

The Green New Deal is so fringe that not one Democrat voted in favor of it during a Senate vote this week. Multiple Democrats, including presidential candidate John Hickenlooper and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who is the ranking member on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, have come out and opposed Ocasio-Cortez’s plan.

The AFL-CIO, America’s largest organized-labor group, also slammed Ocasio-Cortez’s plan, noting that it “is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the AFL-CIO Energy Committee stated. “We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”

Aside from her disastrous Green New Deal, which President Donald Trump is eagerly waiting to campaign against, Ocasio-Cortez also holds many other fringe beliefs that are out of touch with the mainstream.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has called the state of America “garbage,” has also openly championed far-left gun control measures, including calling for the banning of all semi-automatic firearms and praising New Zealand for confiscating nearly all firearms from their citizens.

Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly slammed federal law enforcement officials that work in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), even as illegal alien MS-13 gang members murder people in her district.

Ocasio-Cortez also has a strong anti-Semitic streak in her, as she has repeatedly aligned with and defended notorious anti-Semites, whether it be Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), activist Linda Sarsour, or British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Ocasio-Cortez’s political party, the Democratic Socialists of America, have openly chanted for the elimination of Israel. Ocasio-Cortez has also falsely stated that Israel is illegally occupying Palestine and will not disclose whether she supports anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestments, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns.

Former Nevada Democrat state Sen. Lucy Flores accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual misconduct in a piece she wrote about a 2014 encounter she had with him that left her “mortified,” saying she had “never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before.”

Flores, a former member of Bernie Sanders’ political group Our Revolution, says that the incident happened as she was about to go on for a rally just days before the upcoming elections were held.

“Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction,” Flores wrote. “As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?'”

“I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified,” Flores continued. “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. … I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”

“I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before,” Flores said, adding, “he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused.”

“Imagine you’re at work and a male colleague who you have no personal relationship with approaches you from behind, smells your hair, and kisses you on the head,” Flores continued. “Now imagine it’s the CEO of the company. If Biden and I worked together in a traditional office, I would have complained to the HR department, but on the campaign trail, there’s no clear path for what to do when a powerful man crosses the line.”

Flores says that one of the factors that led to her speaking out about what happened to her was that she saw numerous reports about Biden’s creepy behavior toward women and children. Here are some video clips of Biden’s creepy behavior:

In November 2017, a month after the #MeToo movement was launched, The Daily Wire reported on Biden’s disturbing behavior which included allegations that he made female Secret Service agents uncomfortable because he would get naked in front of them.

“Agents say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,” the book “The First Family Detail” alleges. “Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”

The allegation against Biden comes as he is reportedly expected to announce that he is running for president in 2020.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden is out front in a poll by Quinnipiac University out Thursday, with 29% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters saying they’ll vote for him in the 2020 primary if he runs,” CNN reported on Thursday.

“Biden is contemplating a campaign for the White House in 2020, and there is speculation that he is close to entering the presidential field. He is followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (19%), former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (12%), and Sen. Kamala Harris (8%), according to the Quinnipiac poll.”

President Donald Trump railed against the Democratic Party on Tuesday night as he brought attention to their attempts to eliminate the Electoral College by subverting the U.S. Constitution.

Trump’s comments come after far-left Colorado Gov. Jared Polis “quietly signed a bill that pledges Colorado’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote,” the Denver Post reported.

“Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College,” Trump, tweeted. “It’s like training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to just the large States — the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power — & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.”

The National Popular Vote (NPV), which would take effect and eliminate the electoral college after enough states join to comprise 270 electoral votes, now sits at 181 votes after Colorado signed on.

The Federalist notes that the NPV is viewed by Democrats as a cure for their inability to win in the heartland of America but that it faces massive legal problems because it is unconstitutional.

After highlighting how changes to the Electoral College are only supposed to happen through the Constitution, attorney Kyle Sammin writes at The Federalist:

It is a bad idea, but does that mean it is unconstitutional? Not on those grounds alone, but the compact clearly violates the plain language of several sections of the Constitution. The first clue is in its title. Any interstate compact must raise the issue of the Compact Clause in Article I of the Constitution, which holds in relevant part that “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress … enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State.”

That’s a pretty strong statement. No penumbras and emanations here, only the unequivocal language of the Constitution that says any compact among the states must be approved by Congress. Even in those analyses of the NPVIC that support its constitutionality, authors admit that “read literally, this provision would require all agreements between states to be approved by both houses of Congress and to be signed by the President before coming into effect.”

Sammin also notes that another challenge that faces the NPV is the fact that it has the effect of disenfranchising each state’s citizens:

Imagine a scenario like the 2004 election, where Republican George W. Bush won a majority of the popular vote, but did not win any of the current NPVIC member states (Colorado will be the exception to this rule when it joins the compact). The result would have been that John Kerry’s ten best states all cast their votes for his Republican opponent. Does that make any sense? Is that the will of the voters in those states?

Legal scholar Tara Ross produced two videos for PragerU that documented the importance of the Electoral College and the dangers of the NPV.

CNN analyst Sam Vinograd compared President Donald Trump’s 2019 CPAC speech on Saturday to Adolf Hitler murdering six million Jews in the Holocaust.

“The men and women here today are on the front lines of protecting America’s interests, defending America’s value, and reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage,” Trump said on Saturday. “With your help, we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals. These are serious, serious betrayals to our nation and to everything we stand for. It’s been done by the failed ruling class that enriched foreign countries at our expense. It wasn’t America first, in many cases it was America last. Those days are over, long over.”

After CNN replayed the clip from Trump’s CPAC speech, Vinograd, a former Obama official, said: “His statement makes me sick, on a personal level, preserving your heritage, reclaiming our heritage, that sounds a lot like a certain leader that killed members of my family and about six million other Jews in the 1940s.”

Vinograd then stated that Trump “pretends that there are massive flows of illegal immigrants coming over our borders,” ignoring the over 360,000 arrests that were made on the border last year.

Then, without any evidence, Vinograd suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin was somehow behind Trump’s CPAC speech.

“By the way, this whole CPAC speech, how many pieces, parts of President Putin’s to-do list was President Trump trying to accomplish today?” Vinograd continued. “He denigrated our institutions – the Department of Justice and U.S. Congress, he spread misinformation and conspiracy theories, he undermined the credibility of several of our institutions – he sowed divisions, he sowed confusion, he was speaking to his base but he was also saying things that really looked like Vladimir Putin scripted his speech. So it helped him perhaps with his base, and politically, while at the same time, making Russia’s job a lot easier.”

WATCH:

Not surprisingly, Trump blasted the media during his speech, which lasted approximately two hours.

“I’ve learned because with the fake news — if you tell a joke, if you’re sarcastic, if you’re having fun with the audience, if you’re on live television with millions of people and 25,000 people, in an arena and if you say something like Russia please, if you can, it is Hillary Clinton’s e-mails! Please, Russia, please!” Trump joked at CPAC. “Please, get us the e-mails! Please!”

“So everyone is having a good time, I’m laughing, we’re having fun and then that fake CNN and others say, ‘he asked Russia to go get the e-mails. Horrible!'” Trump continued. “I mean, I saw it like two weeks ago. I’m watching and they are talking about one of points. He asked Russia for the e-mails. These people are sick and I’m telling you — they know the game. They know the game and they play it dirty. Dirtier than anyone who’s played the game. Dirtier than it’s ever been played.”

Also not surprisingly, Vinograd took issue with Trump’s joke, complaining on Twitter: “Hey legal eagles – is saying you were ‘joking’ about asking someone to commit a crime a reasonable defense? Trump just told #CPAC that he was ‘joking’ about asking Russia to hack HRC Apparently Stone didn’t think he was joking… nor the campaign officials that coordinated w him.”

President Donald Trump slammed Democrats on Monday evening for refusing to support legislation that would prevent innocent newborn babies from being killed if they were born alive after surviving an abortion.

“All but three Democrats voted against a procedural motion on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, denying it the necessary 60 votes to proceed,” The Mercury News reported. “The final vote count was 53 in favor and 44 opposed.”

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children,” Trump tweeted. “The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.”

“This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress,” Trump continued. “If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

The Mercury News added: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has sought to put Democrats – and 2020 candidates in particular – on the record on the issue after recent comments made by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam of Democrats. McConnell also plans to hold a vote in the coming weeks on the Green New Deal climate-change legislation as he has cast the Democrats as extreme.”

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act states:

This bill amends the federal criminal code to require any health care practitioner who is present when a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion to: (1) exercise the same degree of care as reasonably provided to any other child born alive at the same gestational age, and (2) ensure that such child is immediately admitted to a hospital. The term “born alive” means the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut.

Also, a health care practitioner or other employee who has knowledge of a failure to comply with these requirements must immediately report such failure to an appropriate law enforcement agency.

An individual who violates the provisions of this bill is subject to a criminal fine, up to five years in prison, or both.

An individual who commits an overt act that kills a child born alive is subject to criminal prosecution for murder.

The bill bars the criminal prosecution of a mother of a child born alive for conspiracy to violate these provisions, for being an accessory after the fact, or for concealment of felony.

A woman who undergoes an abortion or attempted abortion may file a civil action for damages against an individual who violates this bill.

“Senators who could not bring themselves to vote to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act should reconsider whether or not they have what it takes to serve,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement to Fox News. “Senator Sasse’s common sense bill would merely require doctors assist a newborn struggling to survive after a failed attempt on her life. Anyone who lacks the basic level of human compassion needed to vote in favor of this should quickly find another job. We look forward to a vote in the House of Representatives so that Chamber can get on record as well.”

The U.S. House of Representatives approved $5.7 billion for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall on Thursday night after Trump said that he would not sign a short-term continuing resolution approved by the Senate because it did not include funding for the wall.

“House approves $5.7 billion for President Trump’s border wall, sending bill back to Senate and raising risk of partial shutdown,” The Associated Press tweeted.

Funding for the border wall passed 217-185 along party lines and now goes to the Senate for a vote.

“The Democrats, who know Steel Slats (Wall) are necessary for Border Security, are putting politics over Country,” Trump tweeted on Thursday. “What they are just beginning to realize is that I will not sign any of their legislation, including infrastructure, unless it has perfect Border Security. U.S.A. WINS!”

“With so much talk about the Wall, people are losing sight of the great job being done on our Southern Border by Border Patrol, ICE and our great Military. Remember the Caravans?” Trump continued. “Well, they didn’t get through and none are forming or on their way. Border is tight. Fake News silent!”

“When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership,” Trump concluded. “Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries – but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!”

“Republicans in Congress have continually told the American people that we would fight for wall funding, and today the House of Representatives took its first step toward fulfilling that promise,” The House Freedom Caucus wrote on Twitter. “The Senate must follow our lead.”

“It’s time we do what we said and work with President Trump and the American people to secure our borders,” The House Freedom Caucus added.
