We all know it was never about “climate change,” but now even the chief of staff for socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just confessed it’s all about a socialist revolution. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Saikat Chakrabarti told The Washington Post. Chakrabarti then asked, “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” before letting the socialist cat out of the bag: “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” In rare moments of clarity, Leftists reveal the truth, and everything comes crashing down.

The chief of staff for firebrand freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) admitted what the true goal of the Green New Deal is, and it’s not to defeat global warming.
Saikat Chakrabarti made the startling admission in a conversation reported in the Washington Post.
“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” Chakrabarti said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.”
Chakrabarti was speaking with Sam Ricketts, the climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination.
As viewers continue to flee from CNN, the Fake News outlet is using the opportunity to downsize its staff while sliding into new, luxurious headquarters. With less than half of Fox News Channel’s average, its prime time lineup is tallying behind TLC as well as Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channels, according to media watchdogs. Media expert Joe Concha is predicting these numbers will only get worse with the outlet’s liberal 2020 propaganda in full swing. In other words, the American people have had their fill of fake news.

CNN is suffering a credibility crisis as viewership for the once-proud network continues to crater with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.
CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers, less than half Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million.
The Hill media guru Joe Concha told Fox News that CNN’s freefall may not be slowing.
“The numbers warrant concern, yes. Q2 was a particularly news-rich quarter highlighted by the release of the Mueller report and all the aftermath and controversy following it, plus the launch of several high-profile Democratic candidacies including Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg to propel 2020 coverage into high gear,” Concha said.
If elected president in 2020, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will implement a scorched-earth policy on America’s sovereignty and our border security agents, even decriminalizing illegal border crossings. It comes complete with a vow to “reshape CBP and ICE from top to bottom,” create an Office of New Americans, raise the number of refugees by more than 100,000 in her first year as well, and put more than 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship. Warren calls it a “rules-based system that is fair, humane, and that reflects our values.” But if public polling is any indication, the American people say, “Thanks but no thanks.” Good luck with all that, Liz.

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has released a new immigration plan that would include decriminalizing crossing the border in a Medium post on Thursday.
“We need expanded legal immigration that will grow our economy, reunite families, and meet our labor market demands. We need real reform that provides cost-effective security at our borders, addresses the root causes of migration, and provides a path to status and citizenship so that our neighbors don’t have to live in fear,” the post reads, “That’s why today I’m announcing my plan for immigration reform — to create a rules-based system that is fair, humane, and that reflects our values.”
Along with decriminalizing border crossings, Warren vows to “reshape CBP and ICE from top to bottom” to focus them on smuggling and trafficking, and to use methods of monitoring migrants outside of detention, such as parole, case management, and surveillance.
Capitol Hill newbie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just took her catfight with SanFran Nancy to a new level-by accusing the House Speaker of “singling out” women of color in an attempt to keep AOC and her new radicals in check. “When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Post. “But the persistent singling out…the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” Outlook for AOC’s electoral future: not so good.

The war between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is approaching nuclear reactor meltdown levels. This was bound to happen. It’s the new guard versus the old guard. That battle has intensified over the border crisis. Moderate House Democrats bolted and pushed to pass the Senate’s border package, which was also overwhelmingly bipartisan. It’s also one that President Trump said he would sign. The House passed their version, but had provisions that would have hampered enforcement of federal immigration laws. The funny thing is that AOC voted against the House bill too.
AOC, Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) all make up this far left witches coven and they’re even giving the House Democratic leadership heartburn. Pelosi has dismissed them, their policy initiatives, and said that their clout is grossly overrepresented due to their social media activity.
Former President Bill Clinton denied on Monday knowing anything about billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking of underage minors, but new developments put Bill Clinton on 27 trips on Epstein’s airplane. Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News, “I actually attempted to interview Clinton, but he did not agree to do so, and I know from the pilot logs, and these are pilot logs… you know were written by different pilots and at different times, that Clinton went. He was a guest of Epstein’s 27 times. Many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him, and many times he did not,” Sarnoff continued. “Almost every time that Clinton’s name is on the pilot logs there are underage girls. There are initials, and there are names of many, many girls on that private plane.” Of course, none of this comes as any surprise, but it begs the question why the FBI let Epstein and Slick Willy off the hook.

Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Monday night that there were “underage girls” on accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s plane when former President Bill Clinton traveled on it — at times without his Secret Service detail.
Fox News’ Lukas Mikelionis reports that Sarnoff is the executive director of Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and is the author of the book “TrafficKing: The Jeffrey Epstein Case.” The Fox News segment followed the recent developments in the Epstein case that have occured after the financier was arrested on Saturday on child sex trafficking charges.
Sarnoff made the remarks in response to the following statement from Clinton on Monday:
President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York.
In her latest open borders remarks, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made it clear she doesn’t believe in American sovereignty. “I think that the whole notion of criminalizing the approach to coming across the border without documentation is not making anybody any safer. We just need to be in a different position on this,” Warren said in an interview this week. Nevermind U.S. Customs and Border Protection data revealing that among the two caravans arriving in the U.S. between October 2018 and January 2019 the “women and children” Warren aims to protect were among some 1,520 previously deported illegal aliens convicted of crimes in the U.S., including murder, rape, and assault. Warren also conveniently forgets intel on ISIS incursions at the Mexican border.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) does not believe it should be a criminal offense to cross the border illegally, she said during an interview with the California Nation podcast, which was posted Monday.
While the presidential candidate hit a number of issues during the broad discussion, Section 1325 of the immigration code, which makes it a criminal offense for people to cross the border illegally, became a highlight.
“Are you in favor of repealing that?” she was asked.
“I am,” Warren said, arguing that “criminalizing” illegal entry does not make people safer.
Sleazeball Clinton crony Jeffrey Epstein has just been indicted on two counts of sex trafficking. “The victims described herein were as young as 14 years old at the time they were abused…and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation,” court documents revealed. “Epstein intentionally sought out minors and knew that many of his victims were in fact under the age of 18.” The documents also reveal that Epstein created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from at least 2002 to 2005, and among his frequent clientele treated to services by these exploited young girls on his private island were global elites, including Bill Clinton.

An indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed Monday morning against billionaire financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who is set to make his first appearance in a New York City federal court later in the day.
Prosecutors allege Epstein, the 66-year-old wealthy hedge fund manager arrested on Saturday, preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14.
“The victims described herein were as young as 14 years old at the time they were abused…and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation,” prosecutors wrote in court documents. “Epstein intentionally sought out minors and knew that many of his victims were in fact under the age of 18.”
Democrats are refusing to acknowledge the open borders crisis of their own making and are continuing to deny any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall ahead of federal fiscal year 2020, which begins Oct. 1. “In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers,” reported The Hill. The next big fight is the homeland security appropriations bill, which at this point rescinds $6 million in previous funding and provides zero border wall funding or additional funds for agents or checkpoints.

Democrats on high alert to block any funding for Trump’s border wall
Democrats are doing everything they can to block off any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall amid rising tensions over the crisis at the border.
In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers, limit the use of flexible funds and oppose refilling accounts that could be used to build the barrier.
Their efforts come as anger within the Democratic Party is rising over the treatment of migrants detained at the border. Lawmakers who visited the border on Monday described conditions as “inhumane” and “abhorrent.”
The tiny town of Needles, California, wants to be a “sanctuary city” for the Second Amendment in the otherwise Left coast gun-control stronghold. The city council voted unanimously last month declaring it as such and cited encroachment of the state’s strict gun laws on residents’ constitutional gun rights. The city also wants a new gun law tweaked that outlaws residents from bringing in ammunition from other states when the nearest California stores are more than 100 miles away, while Arizona is “local.” Look for more municipalities to push back against Leftist collectivism, which may trigger key SCOTUS decisions in the near future.

The Old West desert town of Needles, California, is where the beleaguered Joad family crossed the Colorado River into California in John Steinbeck’s classic novel “The Grapes of Wrath” and was a boyhood home to “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz.
These days, Needles is gaining notoriety for another reason. Leaders have declared it a “sanctuary city” for people who believe California’s strict gun laws have encroached too much on their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
The City Council in the town of 5,000 that borders Arizona and is a few miles from the southern tip of Nevada last month unanimously declared Needles a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City.” The vote had no immediate practical impact on how guns are treated in the city.
Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey withdrew financial incentives previously promised to Nike after it kowtowed to “offended” former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and pulled “The Betsy Ross Flag” shoe from store shelves. Ducey tweeted: “Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history.” According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Nike will lose about $1 million in planning fees and about $4,000 per full-time employee, who will now no longer be hired. Corporate America clearly won’t see the light until they feel the heat.

On Tuesday, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, a Republican, announced that the state would be withdrawing financial incentives promised to Nike over the company dropping an American flag-style shoe, reportedly at the behest of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“The Betsy Ross Flag” edition shoe was kicked to the curb by the athletic gear giant after Kaepernick complained about the new sneakers, allegedly calling them “offensive.” The former QB, who famously took a knee during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games, claiming to protest police brutality and racial injustices, signed a multi-million dollar sponsorship deal with Nike last year.
“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike,” Gov. Ducey posted in a string of tweets on Tuesday morning. “Nike is an iconic American brand and American company.
