Michael Knowles: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is leading Democrats to defeat in 2020

Michael KnowlesOPINIONBy Michael Knowles | Fox News


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faces backlash after Amzaon’s decision to pull out of building a new NYC headquarters



The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have served a combined 48 years in the Senate. They’ve served an additional 27 years in various mayoral offices and governor’s mansions across the country. Their total time in the House of Representatives adds another three decades of service. When you factor in likely candidates who have not yet declared or formed exploratory committees, those numbers rise to 108, 73, and 76 years, respectively. Yet who leads this historically broad and experienced presidential field? A 29-year-old bartender just wrapping up her first month in office.

To be sure, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is too young to launch her own bid for the White House. Nevertheless, the freshman congresswoman controls an entire primary pack of candidates too craven and opportunistic to offer any ideas themselves.


What major piece of legislation has Cory Booker, D-N.J., ever sponsored? What precisely constitutes the political legacy of Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.? The presidential aspirants have played it safe their entire careers. This cautious strategy has served them well – so well that now they hope to follow a first-term radical all the way to the Oval Office.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY BERNIE'S MONEYBOMB: SANDERS 2020 IS GOING NOWHERE

Last November, Ocasio-Cortez cooked her dinner live on Instagram. Within weeks Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, followed suit and opened their kitchens to the masses. A couple of months ago, a video emerged of Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop in college. As soon as the mainstream media covered the clip, Harris tweeted her own video shimmying back and forth in a chair. “I’m for *more* dancing in politics,” she beamed. Harris may dance, but Ocasio-Cortez calls the tune.



The nearest to a leader among the presidential aspirants is the 77-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to whom progress means nothing more than rehashing the failed economic policies of the 1930s. Insomuch as he successfully pushed the Democratic Party toward the radical left in 2016, Sanders has accomplished more than his competitors. Still, three years later, even Bernie follows AOC’s lead on selling socialism to the people.

Ocasio-Cortez’s thrall over the 2020 race extends beyond style to specific matters of public policy. As she tells it, just a dozen years remain before air pollution extinguishes life on earth. To forestall Armageddon, we must pass the freshman congresswoman’s radical “Green New Deal.” This eco-socialist overhaul would outlaw planes, trains, automobiles, private health insurance, and 88 percent of the American energy industry before demolishing and rebuilding every edifice in the country, sticking the U.S. taxpayer with a $40 trillion tab. Nevertheless, as if in lockstep, Senators Gillibrand, Harris, Sanders, Warren, and Booker all signed up to co-sponsor the plan.

Advocates of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal insist the plan enjoys wide support among all Americans, from liberal Democrats (92 percent) to conservative Republicans (57 percent). They fail to mention that virtually no one knows anything about it. According to the same Yale Center for Climate Change Communication study they cite, a full 82 percent of respondents knew “nothing at all” about the Green New Deal before answering the survey questions, all of which described the proposal in positive terms.

Presidential campaigns shed intense light on candidates and the policies they propose. One suspects support for the Green New Deal might crack once the American public learns the program will cost them their jobs, cars, doctors, flights, homes, heat, and electricity, among other pleasures.

Then the 2020 candidates will face an unpleasant choice: reverse course, thereby revealing themselves as the empty-suited opportunists that they are, or else persist in following an ignorant 20-something bartender down the path to electoral ruin. Leadership entails difficult decisions. The Democrats who would lead the free world will soon regret not making those decisions sooner.

"Dems darling mex"- That statement is racist.
Also indicates a high level of ignorance about AOC's lineage.

Her father was born in the Bronx to a Puerto Rican family and became an architect; her mother was born in Puerto Rico. She has described her Puerto Rican community as an amalgamation: "We are black; we are indigenous; we are Spanish; we are European."

Well AOC can't run for President this time around, but there is a male version of AOC who has announced he is running and that is the present governor of Washington State. Jay Inslee is every bit as goofy as AOC and a lot older. He said he will run on the premise that he will defeat "climate change." Don't be fooled by this idiot; all he really wants to do is raise taxes and waste taxpayer money. Just another typical Dummycratic.

I don't think Spain would want it back. Push it off on the French that way everyone could stink like crap.

One big happy socialist stink hole.

Naw, it was once considered a Texas territory. Or that's how the Confederacy saw it. Conquistadors and
Spain before that.

Mexico was only an occupying force in this territory for a short time. You need to make a trip to the Robert Goddard museum here in Roswell. They spell the history here out very well, so even Libs like you can understand it.

I'd like you to tell those Spaniards up north and the Apache what you just said lol. I would even introduce you to them. The Apache fought on the side of Texas and the Confederacy during the Civil War.
So did the Spaniards, they saw the Union as invaders.

So, before you get on your liberal high horse. You need find out how Mexico enslaved and murdered the Apache. Or let the Apache tell you all about it lol. They will get rowdy about it.

So are you insulting us? Just like a member here did to Texans? I live in southern NM, I don't see it
depressed or needy at all. What's happening up north isn't us. But it's leeching off of us.

Cortez will help secure the re-election of TRUMP, who has defaulted on his promise to build the wall and is now advocating to INCREASE legal immigration.

TRUMP has kept all his campaign promises to Israel but has abandoned most of them to the American people.

TRUMP will betray us just like all the other Republicans.

Ronald Reagan gave us the Martin Luther King Holiday and the first Amensty that opened the floodgates to Mexican immigration.

Richard Nixon, "opened up China" and helped export American manufacturing jobs and paychecks to China.

The Bush family, all of whom are open borders globalists who worked tirelessly to ethnically cleanse Americans and replace them with 3d world immigrants.

Mexican gangs and drug cartels now operate in American "Sanctuary Cities" with the full cooperation of local Democrat mayors, governors and even some law enforcement.

Get ready to be governed by a hand full of billionaires and a drug cartels...just like much of Latin America.
