Ocasio-Cortez Delivers ‘Inaugural Address’: ‘Right to Migrate’ Not Negotiable
Breitbart tells us through a 16 February 2019 article how far-left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can be.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) delivered an “inaugural address” in her Congressional District on Saturday afternoon, declaring that issues like the “right to migrate” will not be negotiable.
Addressing hundreds of supporters in the Bronx, the freshman lawmaker even had a swearing-in ceremony before uttering mostly platitudes.
Defending the Green New Deal after she and her office botched the rollout to much ridicule this week, the Democratic-Socialist claimed that the “Green New Deal is the legislation of indigenous communities in the United states” and many others.
“The Green New Deal is the legislation of the residents of Flynt. The Green New Deal belongs to the people of Puerto Rico. The Green New Deal belongs to the coal miners in West Virginia,” she continued. “It belongs to the victims of wildfires in California.”
She accused President Donald Trump of holding Americans “hostage” during the government shutdown and took pride in helping defeat his plans to get full funding for his border wall. Though she did not yell like former NBA player Kevin Garnett, Ocasio-Cortez said that “anything is possible” when “we center our communities and allow them to lead.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who voted against keeping the government open because the spending bill gave additional funds to the Department of Homeland Security, said the “dignity of immigrants, a living wage, an economic and ecological future” are “not up for negotiation.”

So AOC has gone from her initial claim that Republicans took her Green New Deal site down to now blaming the ownership on Puerto Rico and coal miners in West Virginia? As unbelievable as AOC has always been, this is really unbelievable.

At least someone in New York City knows AOC
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed over anti-Amazon push in New York City billboard: ‘Thanks for nothing’
Fox News reports in a 29 February 2019 article that Job Creators Network in New York City has put up a billboard criticizing AOC for her fight against Amazon.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting some negative reviews in her home city.
Fresh off helping drive Amazon’s planned headquarters out of New York City, the rising Democratic star has inspired a billboard in Times Square.
“Amazon Pullout, Thanks for Nothing, AOC,” the billboard, located on 42nd street near 8th Avenue, reads.
The high-visibility blast is funded by the Job Creators Network and will be up for all to see until next Wednesday.
“The Amazon pullout is a perfect example of what we’ve been saying: socialism takes and capitalism creates,” Alfredo Ortiz, JCN president and CEO said in a release on Wednesday.
“The economic consequences of the HQ2 termination gives America a small taste of the harm that is to come if Ocasio-Cortez’s anti-business canon comes to fruition and is made federal policy.”

In the land of Bloomberg 7mdash; where they want to legislate away your gun rights and your ability to drink large soft drinks — this is almost fitting that they would have jobs taken away by someone who wants to give money away to those unwilling to work.
Then again, nothing would be fitting for these people considering what they have legalized for infants and the preborn.
