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
GEE ONCE AGAIN, THANKS BARACK OBAMA …
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel claims Iran lied about ending nuclear weapons program.
The evidence of Project Amad, a program to design, build and test nuclear weapons, is in 55,000 pages of documents and 55,000 files on compact disks that the Israelis sneaked out of the nondescript storage facility in Tehran where Iran’s nuclear secrets are held, Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu said that Iran shelved Project Amad in 2003 but didn’t “shelve its nuclear ambitions” and that it continues to preserve and expand its nuclear capabilities.
Hannity: Appeasement never works
Revealing a huge archive of stolen Iranian nuclear plans, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accused Iran on Monday of lying for years about its efforts to build a nuclear weapon.
Days before President Trump was to decide whether to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Mr. Netanyahu presented records from a secret warehouse in Tehran, making the case that Iranian leaders had deceived the international nuclear agency when they insisted their nuclear program was for peaceful purposes. Israeli spies seized the documents in an overnight raid in January, a senior Israeli official said.
But Mr. Netanyahu did not provide any evidence that Iran had violated the nuclear agreement since it took effect in early 2016. That suggests that the Israeli prime minister — who has opposed the deal since its inception, and even went to the American Congress to try to block it — was hoping that the disclosures would bolster Mr. Trump’s resolve to scuttle the agreement on May 12.
Doing so could be one of the most momentous foreign policy decisions of Mr. Trump’s time in office. In recent days, a succession of European leaders, including President Emmanuel Macron of France and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, have gone to the White House to make the case that the United States was more secure with the Iran deal than without it. Mr. Netanyahu’s presentation seemed intended to push the president in the other direction.

UPDATE II: Obama’s team scrambles knowing damn well it was a bad deal for America.
TRUMP Destroys Hillary on Clinton Pay for Play Foundation and Challenges Hillary to Return Money From Nations Abusive to Women and Gays (VIDEO)
TRUMP DESTROYS CLINTON ON CLINTON FOUNDATION PAY FOR PLAY AND HILLARY’S TAKING MONIES FROM COUNTRIES ABUSIVE TO WOMEN AND GAYS …
During last night’s third and final 2016 Presidential debate, Fox News moderator Chris Wallace asked Hillary Clinton a tough and direct question regarding The Clinton Foundation and the perceived pay for play that took place when Clinton was Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton did not answer the question. She just flat out ignored the question and gushed over what the Foundation did. Donald Trump then pounced on Hillary and the monies she has taken from nations that are abusive to women and gays. Trump asked Hillary to return the money. Of course there is no chance in hell that Hillary would ever do such a thing, yet she claims to be the champion of women and gays. Hillary Clinton had no response to the question of returning the money and was left with that that uncomfortable goofy smile. Would not it be the honrable thing to return monies to countries that abuse women and kill gays? Then again, we used the word honorable.
They kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money.”
“So I would like to ask you right now,” he continued. “Why don’t you give back the money that you have taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money?
BTW … what the hell was up with Clinton in laughing and that bizarro, dopey grin (see video 0:32) she get when Trump mentioned that “these are people that push gays off buildings?” Laughing and that inappropriate, goofy smile?
Wallace: In this bucket about fitness to be president there’s been a lot of developments over the last ten days since the last debate. I’d like to ask you about them. These are questions that the American people have. Secretary Clinton, during your 2009 Senate confirmation hearing you promised to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest with your dealing with the Clinton Foundation while you were secretary of state, but e-mails show that donors got special access to you, those seeking grants for Haiti relief separately from non-donors and some of those donors got contracts, government contracts, taxpayer money. Can you really say you’ve kept your pledge to that Senate committee and why isn’t what happened and what went on and between you and the Clinton Foundation? Why isn’t it what Mr. Trump calls pay-to-play?
Clinton: Well, everything I did as secretary of state was in furtherance of our country’s interests and our values. The state department has said that. I think that’s been proven, but I am happy — in fact, I’m thrilled to talk about the Clinton Foundation because it is a world renowned charity and I’m so proud of the work that it does. I could talk for the rest of the debate. I know I don’t have the time to do that, but just briefly the Clinton Foundation made it possible for 11 million people around the world with HIV AIDS to afford treatment and that’s about half of all the people in the world that are getting treatment in partnership with the American health association.
Wallace: Secretary Clinton, respectfully, this is an open discussion.
Clinton: Well, it is an open discussion.
Wallace:The specific question is about pay to play –
Clinton: There is a lot of evidence about the very good work –
Trump: And it’s a criminal enterprise –
Wallace: Please let Mr. Trump speak.
Trump: It’s a criminal enterprise. Saudi Arabia given $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries. You talk about women and women’s rights? So these are people that push gays off business, off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly and yet you take their money. So I’d like to ask you right now why don’t you give back the money that you’ve taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money? I think it would be a great gesture because she takes a tremendous amount of money. And you take a look at the people of Haiti. I was in Little Haiti the other day in Florida, and I want to tell you they hate the Clintons because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace. And you know it and they know it and everybody knows it.
Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry Says … Funds From Iran Sanctions Relief Could End Up In Terrorists’ Hands
WELCOME TO THE NOT SO SAFE WORLD OF OBAMA IN WONDERLAND … REMEMBER WHEN A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PURPOSE WAS TO ACT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF WE THE PEOPLE, NOT THE MULLAHS OF IRAN?
Barack Obama White House and Secretary of State John Kerry both admit that some of the $100′s of billions of unfrozen Iranian assets could find its way to support terrorism. In other words, Barack Obama and John Kerry just negotiated a deal to fund terrorism against the United States. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? These same people will provide you with the twisted logic that the United States and its allies are now safer because of an Iranian nuclear deal, that most rational people know and understand that Iran will never keep its word, and having paid Iran billions, knowing that some of it will go to support and sponsor terrorism.
These people should be jailed for treason. They actually just admitted that they have funded terrorism. So if an individual person does it or is accused of it, they are arrested, thrown in jail, tried, founds guilty and imprisoned. But if Obama does it, he is hailed as a hero. Who is buying this BS?
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that could be prevented, but I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time. I’m sure at some point some of it will, but that has never made the difference of what is happening there.”
“The only observation we’ve made on how they would spend the money is the observation from the secretary of state that it certainly seems possible, if not likely, that they will use some of those funds to support acts of terrorisms,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest added later in the day. “That possibility certainly exists.”
What a sick, twisted America we live in under the Obama regime. It took Barack Obama and his band of woefully ignorant and all too willing cronies to pay off Iran and the mullahs; however, the American hostages held in Iran got butkis as the State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.
Ali Khamenei congratulated Iran’s diplomats on Tuesday for making the “front of arrogance and bullying”—that would be the U.S.—retreat. Iran’s Supreme Leader has good reason to be happy. Having preserved the core of his nuclear capabilities, his regime is now on the receiving end of a financial windfall.
Take the financial component of the nuclear accord that took formal effect on Saturday. In addition to lifting most sanctions and releasing more than $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets, the Obama Administration over the weekend agreed to pay the mullahs a separate $1.7 billion to settle an Iranian claim dating to the 1970s.
That amount includes a $400 million trust fund used by the Shah to purchase American arms before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, plus $1.3 billion in interest. You can argue whether the trust fund properly belongs to the regime that overthrew the Shah, but at least that $400 million was originally Iranian money.
The $1.3 billion interest payment will come from U.S. taxpayers, which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claims “was fixed at a reasonable rate of interest.” Maybe so, but it happens that $1.7 billion is also the amount at issue in a case brought by American victims of Iranian terrorism against the Central Bank of Iran. The plaintiffs include victims and survivors of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing and the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, among other Iranian-directed atrocities.
Yet President Obama and Mr. Kerry didn’t press for fair settlements for these victims as part of the nuclear deal and now seem to be pre-emptively reimbursing Tehran for its potential losses from the claims. The State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.

Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’
IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …
The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.
Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.
Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.
Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?
Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.
The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.
Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.
But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.
Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.
