    AOC’s Alleged Aunt Disputes Claim Trump At Fault For Puerto Rico Aid Issues: ‘We Had The Assistance And It Didn’t Get To The People’


    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) alleged aunt disputed the far-left lawmaker’s recent claim that former President Donald Trump was responsible for the lack of aid in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, saying in an interview that the problem was the Puerto Rican government, not politicians in Washington, D.C.
    “Just over a week ago, my [grandmother] fell ill,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed in a tweet last week. “I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.”

    The Daily Mail tracked down the home of AOC’s grandmother and, when they approached the home, they were met by a woman who told them that she was AOC’s aunt.
    “I am her aunt. We don’t speak for the community,” the woman said. “We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.”
    The Daily Mail said that AOC’s “aunt” “refused” to blame Trump for the alleged problems that many of the victims of Hurricane Maria had with getting aid to repair their homes.

    “In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven’t had anything,” she said. “It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.”
    AOC’s tweet last week set off a firestorm, with many calling out AOC online, saying that she needed to help her grandmother.
    The following are some of the responses AOC received:


    • Curtis Houck, NewsBusters Managing Editor: “You need to help her!”
    • Tom Elliott, founder of Grabien Media: “AOC: My grandma can’t fix her ceiling without a Washington bailout.”
    • Christopher Bedford, Federalist senior editor: “When your grandmother is ill and living in squalor, you can start working to get her into a proper home right away, or you can tweet attack Donald Trump. Your call, I guess.”
    • Steve Milloy, political commentator: “Maybe instead of sporting uber-expensive designer clothes you could sacrifice for your abuela. Maybe you could wear an outfit and then auction it off and send the money to your abuela. The possibilities are endless.”
    • Mike Cernovich, political commentator: “You couldn’t swing a mortgage payment or two?”
    • Matt Walsh, Daily Wire columnist: “AOC went and bought herself a Tesla while her grandmother lives in a shack with a collapsing ceiling. It never fails with these champagne socialists. They expect everyone else to make sacrifices while making none themselves.”

    Walsh later trolled AOC by starting an online fundraiser that raised over $100,000 for AOC’s grandmother in a short period of time. The fundraising website later shut down the effort, claiming that AOC’s family told the website that they would not be taking the money.

    More bold faced lies coming from the dimwit in DC.
    You know what pisses me off more than the lies coming from democrats? The fact that they think we're dumb enough to believe 'em.

    You know what pisses me off more than that? A lot of people do believe those lies. We've got a lot of dumb folks in the USA.

    What a damn fool!


    Days After Biden Snubbed Men Who Stormed Normandy, His Defense Secretary Thanks LGBT Soldiers for Freeing America and Defeating the Confederacy

    The “woke” Pentagon this week thanked transgender troops and other members of the LGBT community for winning historic conflicts, including the Civil War — and the hat tip came just days after the Biden administration snubbed D-Day veterans on the anniversary of the invasion of France.
    If you’ll recall, President Joe Biden was too busy this week costing Americans their jobs and making food for their families more expensive to thank the men who liberated France and, later, the rest of Europe.
    Not a single proclamation, public comment or social media post was issued by the commander-in-chief to honor those who landed at Normandy on June 6, 1944.

    Perhaps those men, who were mostly white male teenagers, weren’t ethnically or sexually diverse enough to be honored. Maybe it’s problematic that they didn’t discuss their thoughts on “pride” as their LCVP landing crafts faced MG-42 machine guns, artillery and mortar fire while they came ashore.
    But Biden’s defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, made sure to produce a bizarre statement three days later honoring members of the alphabet community for their service — even in the Civil War, he said.

    “Throughout American history, LGBTQ+ citizens have fought to defend our rights and freedoms — from the Founding of our nation to the Civil War, from the trenches of two World Wars to Korea and Vietnam, and from Afghanistan to Iraq,” Austin said Wednesday. “They fought for our country even when our country wouldn’t fight for them.
    “Even as some were forced to hide who they were … or to hang up their uniforms.”

    I'd like to see a list of names of the LGBTQ+ fighters from the Civil War... betcha they can't come up with one name.



    “And today,” he said, “we reaffirm that transgender rights are human rights, and that America is safer — and better — when every qualified citizen can serve with pride and dignity.
    “Now, that’s real progress.”
    The defense secretary added that that “our work isn’t done until we create a safe and supportive workplace for everyone –free from discrimination, harassment, and fear. Because nobody should have to hide who they love to serve the country that they love.”
    Is this even real?

    Nobody is doubting that gay men have fought valiantly for this country — or any country — throughout the long history of combat.
    In fact, the British man who cracked Nazi Germany’s Enigma code, Alan Turing, was exiled and cruelly imprisoned for being gay by that country after World War II.

    Turing saved countless Allied lives, and he was treated horribly. But what made Turing exceptional was his mind, not who he found himself attracted to.
    History was often cruel, as we all well know. Ask the few men still living who liberated Europe about the cruelty of humanity. Some of those men also liberated concentration camps.
    How does Austin’s statement Wednesday serve to make the U.S. military a better, stronger, meaner and mightier fighting force? It doesn’t. In fact, Austin’s comments were strange and nonsensical in their entirety.

    The man came off as a caricature of a bad left-wing comic book hero. Really? Gender-confused people won the Civil War? No, they didn’t. Men who embraced the American identity won that war, and many others.
    By politicizing the military and embracing neo-Marxist identity politics, Biden, Austin and others are turning the world’s most elite fighting force into an international laughingstock. Sadly, their actions might result in a lot of people getting killed the next time the country finds itself engaged with an enemy that hasn’t spent its time crying tears about discrimination.

    Our enemies are ruthless killers. This country’s international adversaries are well-trained and heavily armed, and they probably smell blood in the water at this point.
    Hopefully, the Pentagon will change course quickly.
    China and its vast army are hungry for conquest, and its riflemen don’t care what color of dress, which brand of tissue or which gender identity our troops and their ineffectual leaders embrace while they should be keeping their sights downrange.

    I'll bet people all over the world are laughing at our military now due to these changes.

    I couldn't help but to laugh uncontrollably when I read that. It was just so damn crazy that I could help it. What did the LGBT soldiers do to defeat the confederacy? Blow 'em to death? lol

    the term LGBTQ+ wasn't even known back then.

    Being Gay was considered to be against the word of God, and IF anyone was gay they were looked upon as poorly as a witch.

    with the suicide rate being greater than that of VETS I highly doubt they would be good for any around them. In fact the military folks I know wouldn't trust them to have their backs ( or their 6's )

    murder.
    driving drunk.
    felons with fire arms.

    even you can't be as stupid to think just because there's a law that it hasn't been violated! or can you be that stupid? yup I guess you can.
    Here in California we have 2 laws that they take advantage of all the time, Motor Voter where you can register to vote at your nearest DVM office and driver licensing for non citizens.

    Illegal aliens by their very presence have shown that are not subject to the jurisdiction thereof, that is they do not respect any of our laws.

    You must be talking about the ones who push the lie that the November election was stolen. Oh, and don't forget the ones who believe that lie.
