Ocasio-Cortez Reveals Plans to Implement Change Without Congress Approval

The issue of gun control (read “confiscation”) is a hot button for liberal Democrats who want to disarm the general population. A recent story from California we did was GUN CONFISCATION LAW IS A SOLUTION FOR MASS SHOOTINGS – DIANNE FEINSTEIN and we talked briefly about the slippery slope of Red Flag laws which allow someone to turn in another to authorities, thereby initiating confiscation of the second person’s guns with no other substance than the first person’s word that they are dangerous or mentally deficient and unsuited for gun ownership. In other words, they do an end-run around the individual’s Second Amendment rights.

A similar attitude is now being put on display by the now-famous freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wants to implement an end-run around the Congress from another direction.

More from The Blaze:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) went viral this month for grilling Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan, who was testifying before the House Financial Services Committee in a hearing meant to hold “megabanks” accountable.

Ocasio-Cortez questioned Sloan why Wells Fargo was “involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children.” The freshman lawmaker even later suggested Wells Fargo should be held partially liable for environmental clean-ups because the bank finances projects that counter the climate change agenda.

Now, according to Politico, Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive lawmakers plan to use similar tactics to advance their anti-Second Amendment agenda and circumvent the legislative process.

What are the details?

Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are joining veteran Democratic lawmakers to try to “shame” America’s massive financial institutions “into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues: climate change, gun violence and immigration,” Politico reported.

More from Politico:

The lawmakers are leveraging seats on the powerful House Financial Services Committee and a huge following on social media to confront finance industry executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, firearms makers and private prison companies that operate immigration detention centers. Like-minded activist groups are helping amplify the message.

Ocasio-Cortez even slyly admitted to Politico that part of applying pressure on banks to initiate the change she wants is to circumvent Congress.

“There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly,” she said. “We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.”

Will the plan work?

If history indicates future success, then Democrats could be highly successful in implementing sweeping changes by pressuring banks. JPMorgan and Wells Fargo announced earlier this month it would cut all ties with prisons after Ocasio-Cortez and progressive activists pressured the banks to do so.

The plan even worked last year against the National Rifle Association. In the wake of the Parkland, Florida, massacre, millions of Americans boycotted the NRA, which forced First National Bank to sever ties with the pro-gun organization. The bank had supplied the NRA with its branded credit card.

Karen Shaw Petrou, a managing partner at Federal Financial Analytics, told Politico banks are unusually susceptible to public pressure.

“Banks are acutely sensitive about their reputations because they are in a business acutely susceptible to severe and sudden customer attrition if consumers vote with their wallets,” she explained. “As a highly regulated business, banks are also acutely aware of how changing reputations alter their political-risk profile and what Congress can do to them when and if desired.”

The more we hear from Ms. AOC, the more obvious how dangerous she really is. She “on a roll” as the saying goes, with one outrageous manipulative unconstitutional pitch and sweeping policy reform after another, such as the Green New Deal she brought to the floor. That one may have fallen by the wayside, but this here is much less visible, and if left to her own devices, she may just pull off some of these stunts and schemes.

One big difference between her and some of the old-school leftists is that with her social media familiarity, she’s making public statements that we wouldn’t hear about from many of the other more senior members of Congress who prefer to engineer a deal in private and in person with the other lawmakers. It’s almost as if she can’t stand it if she’s not strutting her brilliance out for everyone to see, but unfortunately for her, she isn’t picking up on the fact that sometimes “less is more” so when she goes live she exposes her ignorance by the way she speaks when confronted one-on-one.

Another danger I see here is that if she continues down this path, she may win over some of her more radical senior members of the House, and if they start teaming up, we could be looking at some serious trouble.

Easter Sunday’s Sri Lanka Bombings Condemned by Jewish Leaders

A few hours ago we posted a report of a deadly series of simultaneous bombings in Sri Lanka. At the time of that report, the estimated death toll was around 100, but the most recent update we have now says at least 207 are dead, with hundreds more wounded.

From Breitbart:

Arutz Sheva reports: Israeli and Jewish leaders condemned the series of deadly bombings which killed at least 207 people and wounded hundreds more in Sri Lanka Sunday morning.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “In the name of the citizens of Israel, it expresses deep shock at the murderous attacks against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka, and Israel is ready to assist the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult time.”
President of the State Reuven Rivlin condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the families of those killed: “The attacks in Sri Lanka, including against those who were celebrating Easter, are a despicable crime. We are all children of G-d, an attack on one religion is an attack on all of us. Best wishes for the wounded.”

Source: Breitbart News

It’s so moving to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support of the people left behind after this heinous act. There are many on the left, even in our Congress, that are openly anti-semitic and anti-Christian, yet Netanyahu recognizes, acknowledges, and supports the Christian community (much to the liberals’ chagrin, I’m sure).

The sounds of the mainstream media’s reports are being deafened by the noise of crickets, unlike when the mass shooting of Muslims took place in New Zealand. I’m sure they will conveniently remain silent since there won’t be any ammunition in this attack they can use to try to tear down President Trump. The rule of thumb that became the norm decades ago was “if it bleeds, it leads,” but now the only ones the liberal media want to see bleed are Trump supporters and Trump himself.

I remember when it was truly a day of mourning when events of this type were aired, but now the MSM outlets are much more selective. The way they treat crisis events of this type now, the only ones whose blood matters is that of innocent non-Christians. I would not be at all surprised to find that if their private conversations were made public, liberal haters of God would be applauding the deaths of every Christian on the planet.

Early Fake News Victim is the Subject of a New Clint Eastwood Movie

The term Fake News has become a daily flogging point against those in the mainstream media, from the White House press crew to the full gamut of TV, online, and print outlets. President Trump regularly trolls them with verbal backhands, and for a good reason; they’ve become the absolute masters of disinformation and left-leaning propaganda.

Clint Eastwood staunchly supports the president and has taken on a  new project, a movie based on a story called The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, who was a victim of a media smear campaign twenty-odd years ago from which he never recovered.

This from Breitbart:

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood is circling The Ballad of Richard Jewell as his next project, the tragic story about an early victim of our fake news media.

Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and at first he was rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area. After the bomb went off, dozens were injured and one person was killed. There is no question, though, that many, many more would have died had Jewell not sounded the alarm.

Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell. The entire story was based on a criminal profile of the bomber.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution launched the hate campaign by comparing Jewell to the serial killer behind a horrible series of child murders in Atlanta.

Immediately, the rest of the unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.

Source: Breitbart News

The article goes on to talk about many more details that I don’t have room for here, but the real bottom line here is that Jewell died young at the age of 42 and never recovered from the media assault on his character and his life.

That kind of abuse is what absolutely infuriates me about the way many of the far-left politicians and media personalities behave. It reminds me of the cliques that become a part of high school life. If you’re in the “in” crowd, nothing matters except adherence to the Group Think. If you dare express your individuality, woe is you, because they will slaughter you verbally, if not physically.

I know many people who have been deceived by the mantra of the Left, and while in many ways they may be friendly people, when it comes to some things (such as politics), they seem to totally lose their minds. It’s almost as if there’s a recorded message in there that certain things trigger, and their minds are made up, so don’t confuse them with the facts.

Richard Jewell was a victim of Fake News attacks long before it became a national buzzword. I believe Clint Eastwood’s movie will shed some light on how despicable and pervasive the problem has become in today’s political climate.

Donna Brazile Says Obama Admin ‘Did Everything They Could’, Defends Obama’s Actions Concerning Russian 2016 Election Meddling

We know from history that Donna Brazile is what I would call a hard-core Democrat. I suppose you could say she was hired to be a contributor at Fox News as somewhat of an “expert” on things Democrat (I won’t use the term “democratic,” because that term completely twists the meaning). In a recent segment, she defended the most radically-left president this country has ever seen, Barack Hussein Obama, against naysayers who are critical of his action, or rather the lack of action, concerning Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

This from Breitbart:

Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president. 
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. 
In the Fox report, Brazile claimed it was the Trump campaign that “exploited” information from WikiLeaks, which has suspected ties to Russia.
“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the WikiLeaks information; they would blast it,” Brazile said. “He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings.”
“Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president,” Fox reported.

Source: Breitbart News

So now that the Mueller report has been wrapped up, the findings say clearly that neither President Trump nor anyone in his presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The report should have cleared him from any charges of obstruction of justice, but that didn’t happen. Of course, we know that the reason it was left open-ended is to set the Democrats up with something they call a “road map for impeachment.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren is still beating the impeachment drum as she continues to campaign for a shot at the Oval Office, but Brazile has stepped back from that position a bit. She may believe Trump should be removed from the White House, but she isn’t endorsing it nearly so vigorously right now.

She was quoted as saying“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is. Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report.”

Fox News reported, “Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.”

President Trump’s exoneration via the Mueller report is a stinging rebuke to all those of the far left who howled for over two years about him being unfit for the White House. They keep running the old playbook plan in which they accuse him of all the things of which they are most guilty. Obstructionism? Look no farther than the Democrat party. They would stand against an ice cream social if it came out that Trump suggested it.
