Yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to resurrect some obvisouly fake news in a back-and-forth with Laura Ingraham on Twitter.
During that exchange AOC slammed Ingraham for inviting on a guest who AOC says “faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital.” Also, she said that the doctor was “tout[ing] a COVID “treatment” that…a man may have died trying to self-administer.”
Didn’t you just put a doctor on your show who faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital and touted a COVID “treatment” that you tweeted & Twitter had to remove because a man may have died trying self-administer it?
I’m sorry, why are you on TV again? https://t.co/Lfc6RvtBDS

Concerning the former claim, Ingraham answered herself. She insisted that AOC needs to learn the difference between “admitting privileges” and “employed by,” before “maligning a man who has spent his life teaching and saving lives….”
Typical liberal. Doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “admitting privileges” versus “employed by”—maligning a man who has spent his life teaching and saving lives of late stage cancer patients. https://t.co/omIV4IMlM7

But the former claim of AOC was not the most absurd part of the tweet, by far.
The claim that a man died trying to administer the treatment touted by said doctor and Trump is completely false. In fact, this narrative has been widely debunked for two weeks now.
The critism of this drug started, of course, when Trump brought it up as a possible treatment.
Trump said maybe the treatment would work, maybe it wouldn’t, but that he was optimistic. This caused Left media to loose their minds.
The media ran stories and asked questions that made it seem as if Trump was saying this was definitely a miracle cure. They also downplayed the study that showed it was working pretty well during testing.
A few days later, the media found the biggest idiots in the entire world. A woman and her husband ingested fish tank chemicals, supposedly because it had a similarly sounding name to the drug in question.
The media then pinned this on Trump, despite it being complete nonsense, as reported here by Richard Moorhead.
This isn’t a case of some story that was accidentally reported incorrectly. It was a blatant misrepresentation by the media in order to discredit Trump.
Also, this isn’t a case of AOC just simply reporting a verifed story that later turned out to be false. The coverage debunking this narrative was extensive and nearly impossible to avoid, and the narrative was utterly absurd to begin with.
It’s clear that AOC is just spreading fake news either for the purposes discrediting her political opposition or because she is a complete moron…or both.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
