Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America
Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez in November …
As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.
She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.
Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:
It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.
DEMOCRATS WANT A NEW FACE, BUT WHO?
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, Democrats want a fresh face as a 2020 presidential nominee; however, they have nothing. This is easier said than done as the Democrats have no bench. In the eight years of Obama, the Democrat party was decimated. It was only Obama who benefited. Democrats say they want a new face, yet according to a recent Harvard/Harris poll, the top three favorites for a presidential run were former Vice President Joe Biden, Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. So who is it that could possible run? Will the old guard step aside and let the next generation replace them. Is that possible when Democrat politicians find it so hard to give up their power?
Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are among those touted as serious Democratic presidential contenders in 2020, but three-out-of-four Democrats think their party needs to turn to someone new.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 73% of Likely Democratic Voters believe their party should look for a fresh face to run for president in 2020. Just 16% disagree and think the party should promote a candidate who has already run in the past. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
As for Clinton, 58% now believe she has been bad for the Democratic Party. Only 22% think she’s been good for Democrats, while 12% say she’s had no impact on the party.
Firing Line PBS Margaret Hoover: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Steps in It, Called Israel “Occupiers of Palestinian Land” & Says Capitalism Will “Not Always Exist” (VIDEO)
SO THE FUTURE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS A CLUELESS SOCIALIST?
This weekend Alexandria Ocasio Cortez held an interview with Firing Line and Margaret Hoover on PBS. Let’s say it did not go very well. As reported st the Daily Caller, the 27-year old new found darling of the LEFT called Israel occupiers of Palestinian land. When pushed on the comment, Ocasio Cortez mumbled and struggled to give an answer then ultimately admitted that she does not know anything on the issue of what she was talking about. Imagine that? She is a novice who has been thrust into the limelight because the Democrats have nothing. She then, sans a clue, went on to say that that unemployment is low ‘because everyone has two jobs” and “unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week, and can barely feed their kids.” Needless to say, this is not how the unemployment rate works, bit what could you expect from a novice, clueless socialist.
Establishment Democrats are in deep worry mode as this far-leftist socialist is becoming the face of the Democrat party and her insane rhetoric is going to be used in political ads for the midterm elections. It has already been said by DNC Chair Tom Perez that she is the future of the Democrat party, yet other Democrats realize she is divisive and tearing the party in half. Americans might want to take this into at when voting for the 2018 midterm elections, the future of the Democrats is socialism.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’
Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez explained, lamenting that people are employed but having to work long hours, “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world,” she continued.
In an ironic twist, just two weeks before the bungling interview, Ocasio-Cortez had been bragging on twitter about her economics degree and wondering if her assumed future House colleagues would be able to match her educational prowess. In a tweet, the socialist asked “Wondering: How many other House Democrats have a degree in Economics like I do? Trying to find who out here is going to be in the Gini Coefficient Appreciation Squad.”
Ocasio-Cortez graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences just a six years ago
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) vs FBI Agent Peter Strzok in HEATED Exchange at Congress Hearing on Reagarding Different Versions of Russian Dossier (VIDEO)
FBI HAD 3 VERSIONS OF RUSSIAN DOSSIER AND STRZOK REFUSED TO DISCUSS IT ..
Pay real attention to this folks … This was a total set up and the FBI knew there were three versions. As Jordan got close to breaking Strzok, Democrats interfered and obstructed the hearing. It would appear Bruce Ohr is the key and Democrats made every effort for this info to be quashed.
ANOTHER FBI SCANDAL, FBI HAD 3 VERSIONS OF FBI SO-CALLED RUSSIAN DOSSIER …
Bombshell from by John Solomon at The Hill:
Was the FBI using circular information flows to create the case of collusion against Trump? It sure looks that way and they were very well aware of it.
“The pattern is so troubling that one investigator said this to me: “The dossier and its related dirt was on a circular flight path aboard a courier service called ‘Air Clinton,’ and the FBI kept signing for the packages.”
Like dandelions in an untreated lawn, the now infamous Russian dossier apparently multiplied in numbers — and emissaries delivering it to the FBI — the closer Donald Trump got to the White House.
We know from public testimony that dossier author and former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele shared his findings with the FBI in summer and fall 2016 before he was terminated as a confidential source for inappropriate media contacts.
And we learned that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) provided a copy to the FBI after the November 2016 election — out of a sense of duty, his office says.
Now, memos the FBI is turning over to Congress show the bureau possessed at least three versions of the dossier and its mostly unverified allegations of collusion.
Each arrived from a different messenger: McCain, Mother Jones reporter David Corn, Fusion GPS founder (and Steele boss) Glenn Simpson.
That revelation is in an email that disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok wrote to FBI executives around the time BuzzFeed published a version of the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.
“Our internal system is blocking the site,” Strzok wrote of the document posted on BuzzFeed. “I have the PDF via iPhone but it’s 25.6MB. Comparing now. The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson.)”
The significance of Strzok’s email is obvious to investigators who reviewed it in recent days. The FBI is supposed to be immune to manipulation by circular information flows, especially with sensitive investigations such as evaluating whether a foreign power tampered with an American election.
