WAPO: "Fact-checking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's media blitz"

This is not pretty.

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs."" - False

“ICE is required to fill 34,000 beds with detainees every single night and that number has only been increasing since 2009.” - False

"“They [national Democrats] were campaigning most when we had more of an American middle class. This upper middle class is probably more moderate but that upper middle class does not exist anymore in America.” - False

"“In a Koch brothers-funded study...it shows that Medicare for all is actually much more, is actually much cheaper than the current system that we pay right now.” - False

DNC Rule Change: Want Dem nomination for President? Must be a Democrat and run and serve as a Dem


The Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a new rule on Friday aimed at keeping outsider candidates like Bernie Sanders from trying to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

The new rule, adopted by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, requires all Democratic presidential candidates to be a member of the Democratic Party, Yahoo News reported.

A presidential candidate running for the Democratic nomination must be a member of the party, accept the Democratic nomination and “run and serve” as a member.


You want access to the Party's resources? You want to take advantage of all that the Party has to offer?

Be a Democrat. Simple.

I'm totally done with this "Democrats bad! Democrats bad! Oh I want to be President so give me access to your party's resources and support me for President". No, sorry, it doesn't work that way.

Freed from DUs TOS JackAssRadicals tell us what's they really think of Obama


Here is a hint for those who don’t want to click on the link, the title is “The Stupifying Mediocrity of Barack Obama”.

This is what we were arguing with when they were here. If you defend them, this is what you are defending. If you identify with them, well, you can figure out the rest.

Well this appearance by Condoleezza Rice didn't age well

Well this appearance by Rice didn’t age well. Only a year later, H R. McMaster is now gone. When asked whether he was having trouble with Trump, Rice responded “not that I can see”. Uh huh, right. Rice paid McMaster all these accolades and Trump fired him in a very humiliating way. As was Rex Tillerson fires by Trump. So just about all the folks Rice mentioned to try to make us feel better about incompetent Trump are now gone.

Rice said all these negative things about North Korea’s leader and now Trump is saying we should negotiate with him. Nope, this video and Rice’s words haven’t aged well at all.

I wonder how Rice feels about what she said now. How would she spin it away to defend Trump.

You have to read this thread


Person A wants to have praise directed at historical figure because of being at Pearl Harbor, I see in the person’s wiki page they have a viciously racist quote attributed to them and I point it out.

Person A says that’s not “Germaine” to the discussion.

Venezuela's Maduro only got 68% of the vote after banning all opposition parties and candidates

How pathetic is that?

12/11/17 "Venezuela opposition banned from running in 2018 election" - http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-42304594

Today: "Venezuelan President Maduro's election win denounced as a sham" - https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/20/americas/venezuela-elections/

Caracas, Venezuela (CNN)Socialist President Nicolas Maduro has won another six years in power in crisis-hit Venezuela, in an election that the political opposition and Western powers have denounced as a sham.

Many eligible voters boycotted Sunday's vote, bringing turnout to a lackluster 46%, according to the country's election board. Participation was far below the 80% rate in 2013, when Maduro rose to power after the death of veteran leader Hugo Chavez.


"I am a better prepared president and human being right now," he said to a cheering crowd outside Miraflores presidential palace. "You trusted in me and I will respond. Thank you for giving me 68% of those votes."
