You Thought Occasional Cortex Was an Accident?

Nope. There’s a guy behind the curtain that shields her from reality. AOC was groomed by rich capitalists. Think of those talent shows that find performers who look good and sound good reading a script. Then polish them up till they’re good enough for prime time. Simon Cowell comes to mind…but he’s in real show business, not politics.

In this case, it’s not Simon C. doing the grooming but an entity (a PAC, Political Action Committee) called Justice Democrats.

What a group of motley capitalists behind that curtain. Like, man, these people are part of the American nomenklatura, fer sure. And just like all totalitarian groups, they expel anyone who ever had a wrong thought, no matter how long ago they expressed those ideas. So Cenk Uygur has been airbrushed.

OC – or AOC, if you insist – is our latest actress in Washington. And she’s having more fun than a blond would. So take that, white guys!

  1. DailyCaller: Ocasio-Cortez Quietly Removed From Board Of PAC She And Top Aide Controlled
    Democratic Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez and her top aide are no longer board members of the outside PAC credited with orchestrating her political rise, according to a corporate document filed Friday to a Washington, D.C., agency.

    The New York Democrat and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, joined the board of Justice Democrats in December 2017, according to the political action committee’s website. It also said the two held “legal control over the entity” at the same time it was playing a key role in supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign prior to her shock victory over incumbent Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in June 2018.

    Attorneys for Ocasio-Cortez said she was removed from Justice Democrats’ board in June 2018, but she was listed an “entity governor” of the PAC as recently as March 14, according to corporate filings, The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

    Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were officially removed from Justice Democrats’ board on March 15, according to a corporate document filed that day to the Washington, D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.

  2. As I have said many times already, AOC is not as dumb as the republicans constantly reassure themselves that she is. Just as democrats make the mistake of assuming Trump is a moron who only barely succeeded at business because of money he had inherited, as well as being an ex-reality tv buffoon and then wrapping that thought around them like a warm blanket, republicans are making the same mistake with AOC in assuming she is an ignorant former bartender with socialist proclivities.

    I am a lot closer to millennials age wise than I am to the dinosaurs of the boomer generation or the older Gen-Xers. I have an appreciation for how shrewd she is with social media and how she wields it and public perception like a surgeon wields a scalpel. Being photogenic never hurts in politics, and she also skillfully uses the perception that she is a poor underdog against the wealthy elites of her own party. Those on the right always seem to forget that they are not her target audience; her message is instead geared towards the younger Gen-Xers and Millennials who are only now beginning to discover just how badly they have been defecated upon by their elders. If anything, she is a female version of Trump when it comes to the waves she is making within her own party, and she has become a serious headache for the dinosaurs and octogenarians of the democrat party hierarchy. In my opinion, she is the most dangerous person on the democrat side of the aisle, and assuming Trump wins reelection in 2020, she will stomp the democrat dwarves into the ground when she runs for president in 2024. The demographics are also in her favor; her base of support is only growing while the dinosaurs and their voters die off on both sides of the aisle.

  3. For The Record, this is exactly how Nixon got his start. Back in 1948, Richard Milhous auditioned in front of a group of San Gabriel Valley businessmen who represented various interests in the valley that they felt Congressman Voorhis was not properly representing. The audition took place at the Ebell Club in Pomona on Holt Boulevard and the building is still standing. Common knowledge states that not a few of those businessmen represented the military/industrial establishment and whose flagship operation was General Dynamics which was in western Pomona until it was moved to Arizona.
    Nixon did a pretty good job of representing his employers’ interests all the way to the Viet Nam war. His fatal mistake was coming down with a case of good conscience and helping Israel during the Yom Kippur War which everyone thought at the time would go nuclear. He was fired for doing that and was forced to resign.
    AOC should learn the lesson of the moneyed masters that Nixon tried to ignore. The way she is running off at the mouth she is apt to find out what the moneyed elites are made of.

  4. It’s not clear who are the capitalist villains behind the Justice Democrats. The JDs, from their Wikipedia article, seem like a small-fry outfit that disburses $1.5 million a year. I always suspected that AOC has strong staff support. But she is still a human being with some agency. She represents a legitimate point of view that I mostly disagree with. People will continue to be attracted to the radical left as long as the Republicans seek to redistribute wealth upwards through massive tax cuts and cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and other programs that benefit most of us.

    • I agree that she represents legitimate views although I don’t know if that is because she is a true believer or simply pragmatic regarding her own selfish interests.

      Republicans and conservatives have made this own mess by misrepresenting cronyism as capitalism. This has corrupted capitalism in the eyes of many, since the cronyist system that masquerades as capitalism has become synonymous with it. And there are legitimate grievances against capitalism anyway; Lenin was correct when he was said to have described capitalists thusly; “When it comes time to hang the capitalists, they will vie with each other for the rope contract.”

      This is the source of my frustration with capitalism; the shortsighted nature of capitalists who in a race to the bottom will outsource production to third world nations while supporting the importation of illegals to undercut domestic labor costs, thus impoverishing their own countrymen. All the while, both parties representing the Boomers have stolen the wealth of generations unborn while living high on the backs of the underpaid labor of younger generations. In this sense, the socialism advocated by AOC has broad appeal to younger voters because it is the only means by which they might claw back some of the birthright which was stolen from them by their elders who should have had the decency to know better.

      • Good points about capitalism and cronyism. But this country (and us in it) does not deserve socialism – I had lived in its better version (Central Europe) and it was utterly pathetic intellectually, deficient materially and corrupted beyond belief.

        If socialism is the future of America … I still hope it is not.

        • Socialism doesn’t age well…I think it will have a short shelf life. However, the bank bailouts by the Feds in 2008,ff, allowed the face of crony capitalism to be seen without its mask. So it may be the case that we’ll have a brief encounter with socialism before it shuffles off. Won’t be in the immediate future and it won’t last long: there is some genetic quirk in the American DNA that will shrug it off.

          Perhaps by then, the crony capitalists will have been reined in.

    • Cuts in Social Security?
      1) It has never been cut. Spending has risen every single year – no exception
      2) The disability portion of SS has been totally scammed and people like you have said nothing. Everyone knew for years certain doctors will put you on lifetime disability even though you can work. It has cost the taxpayers $ billions.
      3) Social Security is a stupid program that takes from Person A and gives to Person B. It could invest in the economy through equities or even gold for that matter but instead settles for lousy returns from US Treasuries.
      4) Tax cuts return money to the person who works. If you don’t like that try the USSR or Venezuela.

  5. I wonder if AOC’s sponsors are the same bunch behind Dear Leader of Dystopia to your North? Maybe not, but the methodology is the same.

    • Trudeau is legitimately an idiot. I wouldn’t trust him to pour me a beer without screwing it up, let alone mix a martini or an old fashioned.

  6. Leftists took over the city government in small and large California towns and cities years ago. At first they were not competent, but they learned on the job and eventually took larger cities and then the state as well. Some of them are now skilled legislators and bureaucrats. They get things done. Pelosi and Feinstein benefited from this trend. Now they’re on the chopping block.

    Just goes to show you never can tell.
