Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ability to create controversy is a huge headache for Nancy Pelosi.
That relationship took a turn.
And it’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said one word that just cost her everything.
There is no national Democrat more associated with defunding the police than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
However, as Tucker Carlson warned, Democrats only want to defund police that vote Republican.
Carlson explained that what the left really wants is a police force loyal to the Democrat Party that can act as a woke militia the way the FBI and CIA spied on Donald Trump to help the left remove him from office.
Joe Biden declared all 74,000,000 Trump voters were white supremacists as part of his administration’s new domestic war on terror.
But to wage this war against the Trump supporters his government branded as extremists, federal law enforcement needs new forward bases.
Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald explained that thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voting “present,” the Capitol Hill Police now have an extra two billion dollars which it plans to use to open new field offices in Florida and California to track and surveil Americans critical of the Biden administration.
According to Greenwald, the vote would have failed without Ocasio-Cortez and two of her fellow “Squad” members switching their votes from “no” to “present.”
“But the large spending increase nonetheless passed for one reason: three other Squad members voted ‘present’ rather than ‘no’ in order to ensure its passage: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Both Ocasio-Cortez and Bowman had originally agreed in private with the other Squad members to vote ‘no’ and block the additional police spending, but changed their mind at the last minute and voted ‘present’ in order to avoid a defeat for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was demanding greater police spending,” Greenwald wrote.
Greenwald wrote that Ocasio-Cortez’s vote flipping was to avoid embarrassing Nancy Pelosi by defeating one of her key legislative priorities on the floor of the House of Representatives.
This could have disastrous effects on American civil liberties.
“As a result of AOC’s craven act in refusing to join with the other three Squad members in uniting with the GOP to stop it, there is now yet another federal law enforcement agency attempting to assert its power outside of Washington: the Capitol Police. They intend to open ‘regional offices’ in two of the country’s largest states with plans to grow even further. Perhaps even more significantly, they are turning themselves into a preventative ‘intelligence-based’ private police force for Congress which, by definition, will monitor and spy on Americans beyond what the FBI, NSA and CIA already do,” Greenwald added.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talks a big game about standing up to leadership and voting her principles.
But like all socialists, her goal is a left-wing police state.
And by voting present, she enabled Joe Biden to spend another two billion dollars to splurge on his domestic war on terror which targets Trump voters.
