Who the hell made Nancy Pelosi Queen? More like Wicked Witch of the West.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) first tries to position herself above Trump saying he’s not worth bothering to impeach when there’s nothing to impeach him on. Now, she has revoked the honorary office that former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) gave Vice President Mike Pence on the first floor of the Capitol back in 2017.
Pence rarely used the office but the symbolism of Pelosi removing his nameplate from the door and then reassigning the space is brutally clear. However, right now that space is just sitting empty, much like the space between Pelosi’s ears. There seem to be a plethora of Marxists on the HIll these days that are bested in the IQ department by a number of rodents in the same vicinity.
“Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress,” a Pelosi aide told NPR. The aide also said the White House legislative-affairs team “was given new House-side space this year that they did not previously have.”
The vice president, who serves as the president of the U.S. Senate and has an office on that chamber’s side, was given the House office shortly after President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017; it was a sign of goodwill between the House, then led by the GOP, and one of its former members.
This is a definite sign of ill-will by the new Speaker of the House. Frankly, if the Dems want to be petty like this and go to war politically, if I were President Trump, I would oblige them. Aggressively.
If that old moonbat Pelosi wants to dance, block every piece of Democratic legislation that comes down the pike. Veto everything they ask for. Tie the rest up in the courts with executive orders. Two can do a political tango… but that’s just me and why I should never be president.
Pence has an office in the West Wing as well as a set of offices in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Plus, he has space in the Senate. He likely won’t miss his space in the House. In fact, he’ll probably relish not rubbing elbows with evil, Godless leftists who care more about murdering babies, throwing open our borders, doing a two-step on the Constitution and destroying the freest nation on earth than doing what they were elected to do.
I could spend every hour of every day just writing on the idiocy of Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)… more often referred to as ‘Occasional Cortex‘ for good reason. I’m stunned every single time I listen to her blather.
She tried to grill Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Tuesday and made an utter fool of herself… again.
You will be shocked to know the hearing was held by moonbat supreme, Democrat Chairwoman Maxine Waters, and was entitled: “Holding Megabanks Accountable: An Examination of Wells Fargo’s Pattern of Consumer Abuses.” What a farce and an exellent example of abuse of power.
Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t wait to lay into Sloan and thought he would be easy prey for the likes of her political prowess. Not so much. She pushed her political agenda against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and against the fossil fuel industry. It did not end well for the freshman congresswoman.
“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez demanded.
“I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t,” Sloan responded.
“Uh, so in finan–, you’ve, you were financing, involved in debt financing in CoreCivic and GEO group, correct?” Ocasio-Cortez sputtered.
“For a period of time, we were involved in financing one of the firms, we are not anymore,” Sloan responded. “I’m not familiar with the specific assertion you are making, we were not involved in that.”
“OK, so these companies run private detention facilities run by ICE, which is involved in caging children, but I’ll move on,” Ocasio-Cortez conceded.
The gist here is that she accused Wells Fargo of being “involved” in family separations at the border because of the bank’s prior financing of groups that run private prisons. Which is just incredibly dumb and not true.
The back and forth got much worse after that for Occasional Cortex.
“Should Wells Fargo be held responsible for the damages incurred by Climate Change due to the financing of fossil fuels and these projects?” Ocasio-Cortez again put forth.
“I don’t know how’d you calculate that congresswoman,” Sloan responded. Neither does anyone else especially Ocasio-Cortez.
“Say from spills, or when we have to reinvest in infrastructure building sea walls from the erosion of, um, from the erosion of infrastructure or cleanups, wildfires, etc…,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Related to that pipeline?” Sloan replied. “I’m not aware that there’s been any of what you’ve described that’s occurred that’s related to that pipeline.”
Ocasio-Cortez proceeded to talk over Sloan as he finished answering her question: “How about, uh, the cleans up from the leaks of the Dakota Access pipeline?”
“I’m not aware of the leaks associated with the Dakota Access pipeline that you’re describing,” Sloan responded.
“So, hypothetically, if there was a leak from the Dakota Access pipeline, why shouldn’t Wells Fargo pay for the clean up of it since it paid for the construction of the pipeline itself?”
“Because we don’t operate the pipeline, we provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline,” Sloan answered. Ouch. I doubt that Ocasio-Cortez can grasp that logical fact much less debate it.
Why does anyone listen to this Marxist miscreant? There are small rodents with higher IQs out there than Ocasio-Cortez. Just sayin’. If you are going to debate a CEO of a major bank, one who has worked his whole life to climb up the corporate food chain, you might want to come prepared and have a clue concerning what you are talking about.
We hate it when people cheat, but when the elite do it including lawyers, it is worse. It must be mentioned, however, that in many cases the children/students did not know what their parents actually did.
Rick Singer, the founder of the consulting company that devised this scheme just pleaded guilty.
At least 50 well-known people have been charged in several states and authorities are dealing with several universities. It is the largest college admissions scam EVER. Celebrities, coaches, lawyers and wealthy power-brokers have been charged with a variety of federal charges including fraud, cheating, and bribery.
This scheme goes back to at least 2011 and the money involved could be higher than $25 million. Operation Varsity Blues began as an FBI investigation in May of 2018 when the FBI stumbled across a lead on a completely unrelated and separate investigation.
On Feb. 26, former federal prosecutor Lori Lightfoot and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle won the top two spots in Chicago’s mayoral primary. After beating 12 other candidates, Lightfoot, who received 97,000 votes (17.5 percent of the total), and Preckwinkle, who received almost 89,000 votes (16 percent), will compete in a runoff election on April 2.
If Preckwinkle wins, Chicago will elect its most left-wing mayor since Harold Washington (1983–1987).
Preckwinkle was part of Washington’s team when he won the office with a coalition led by white socialists and communists, black radicals, and Latino activists. Washington’s coalition was the model for Jesse Jackson’s multi-racial Rainbow Coalition, which earned the Chicagoan 7 million votes and fourth place in the Democratic presidential primary in 1988. It also foreshadowed the left-led multi-racial coalition that elected Barack Obama to the U.S. presidency in 2008 and 2012.
Preckwinkle has long moved in the overlapping circles of the Obama camp and Chicago’s socialist and communist left.
In the mid-1990s, Preckwinkle was listed as a member of Friends of Alice Palmer, alongside future Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL), Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, Timuel Black, and Obama. Palmer, then an Illinois state senator, would later lose her seat to her own staff member, Obama—his first elected office. Palmer was active in the Communist Party USA-controlled U.S. Peace Council. She was also a regular visitor to the former Soviet Union and active in two international communist front groups: the World Peace Council and the International Organization of Journalists.
Davis and Garcia both had long histories with the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), and Davis was also a member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in the mid-2000s. Black was a veteran of the Socialist Party, DSA, and the CPUSA spin-off Committees of Correspondence.
Preckwinkle also was close to Progressive Chicago, a radical creation of ACORN, the Service Employees International Union, the DSA, and the Committees of Correspondence. Obama was a leader of this group, as were Ron Sable and Lou Pardo of the DSA and Carl Davidson of the Committees of Correspondence.
A Chicago seminar, “The Progressive Potential of Chicago City Politics,” was held Dec. 8, 1998, at the University of Chicago. The panelists included Jackie Grimshaw of the DSA-run Alinsky school Midwest Academy, far-left Chicago Alderman Helen Shiller, and Alderman Preckwinkle. The event was sponsored by the University of Chicago DSA Youth Section and the Hispanic Association for Cultural Expression and Recognition.
Preckwinkle has been an Obama loyalist since at least Obama’s successful state Senate campaign in 1996. In 2000, she backed Obama in a disastrous congressional campaign against former Black Panther Bobby Rush. In 2004, Preckwinkle supported Obama during his longshot, but ultimately successful, run for the U.S. Senate.
On Feb. 25, 1996, more than 300 people attended the first of two “Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity” at the University of Chicago. The meeting, titled “Employment and Survival in Urban America,” was sponsored by the University of Chicago DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA, and UCDems.
The panelists were Preckwinkle, then alderman of Chicago’s 4th Ward; Obama, then-candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; Professor William Julius Wilson of the Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago (a DSA member); professor Michael Dawson of the University of Chicago; and professor Joseph Schwartz of Temple University and a member of the DSA’s National Political Committee.
Obama and Preckwinkle met at another socialist setting in March 1998: the memorial service for Chicago DSA stalwart Saul Mendelson at the First Unitarian Church, Chicago.
Preckwinkle and Obama gave eulogies, as did DSA leaders Carl Shier and Deborah Meier, Quinn Brisben (Socialist Party USA presidential candidate 1976, 1992), David McReynolds (Socialist Party USA presidential candidate 1980, 2000), newly elected U.S. Senator Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill.), and Illinois House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie.
The Chicago DSA formally endorsed Preckwinkle’s successful city council run that same year.
Move forward 21 years and the socialists still support Preckwinkle. Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a one-time DSA member, endorsed Preckwinkle early on, describing her as “the progressive in this race.”
Serving Chicago Alderman and DSA comrade Carlos Ramirez-Rosa also has endorsed Preckwinkle because of her “bold plan to support, integrate, and provide equity to LGBTQ Chicagoans.”
If Preckwinkle wins in April, she won’t be alone. Besides Ramirez-Rosa, DSA member Daniel La Spata won a council seat outright in the Feb. 26 primary, and three more comrades—Rosanna Rodríguez-Sánchez, Byron Sigcho-Lopez, and Andre Vazquez—will advance to run-offs in April. Already there is talk of forming a DSA caucus on the Chicago City Council.
Chicago DSA co-chair Lucie Macias told the Chicago Sun-Times: “For the third biggest city in the country to have a DSA caucus is amazing, and having members around Carlos will only amplify the causes that working-class Chicago—not the rich—wants.”
If Preckwinkle wins the mayoralty and three more DSA comrades win council seats in April, the Windy City better brace itself for a major lurch to the left.

Let’s go deeper shall we?
Notice the name Alexandra Rojas. She is the Executive Director of Justice Democrats. The team at Justice Democrats includes: Corbin Trent, Zack Exley and Saikat Chakrabarti. Chakrabarti is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff and the brainchild behind the Green New Deal.
There is another fella named Sean McElwee. He is the tech guy behind all the fancy social media and websites. He is also the found of Data for Progressives, the left-wing think tank where at least ‘abolish ICE’ was born. McElwee is also the activist that beats the drum of equal votes and voter suppression. Imagine his email directory and how often he sends out talking points to all the Democrat caucuses in the House and Senate as well as the DNC leadership like Tom Perez.
So, back to Saikat Chakrabarti and his idol Subhas Chandra Bose. Before and after working on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign where all these people met and collaborated, Saikat promoted the legacy/manifesto of Subhas Chandra Bose.
Both being of Indian decent, Bose traveled Europe in the mid 30’s and came to know Benito Mussolini. Ah, but during the early 40’s, Bose fled to Germany after the government of India sought to arrest him for mass disobedience and protests of the British and the government of India. After two years, he left for Japan in a German U-180 submarine. As a side note, the Hitler regime endorsed and promoted the Bose‘Free India Government’, the Bose mission and the propaganda war at the close of WWll.
So, the plan is to continue to primary Democrats in Congress under the ‘Brand New Congress’. So far, here is a photo of their success, with more to come.
Beyond Data for Progress, the progressives have been using a pollster called YouGov Blue. Elizabeth Warren loves that pollster as does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Media including NBC and CNN taps that source for talking points and headlines.
John Ray is the senior policy analyst at YouGov Blue. He is after Senator Tom Cotton and Cory Gardner but don’t forget Hillary could be a large part of all this due to her former campaign press secretary Brian Fallon. Fallon at one point worked on the Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign, for Chuck Schumer, was the press secretary for Senator Robert Menendez and later moved to the Justice Department, working for Eric Holder.
Fallon now is the founder and executive director of Demand Justice, a robust operation that was protesting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Oh, by the way, his wife, Katie was the former White House Director of Legislative Affairs in the Obama administration. The swamp is still out there and advising democrat legislators as well and cultivating new candidates.
This is hardly a comprehensive summary, but in hopes the reader has enough information to research deeper and understand the socialist machine and operatives. Tough head-winds ahead, so be armed with the operatives and the mission.
