Irony is completely lost on Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman Congresswoman from New York, who suggested Wednesday morning that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz does not have the experience necessary to run for President.
‘Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to ‘work their way up’ or that ‘maybe they should start with city council first?” the former bartender-turned Congresswoman asked on Twitter.

She was responding to a Daily Beast report that Schultz is considering an independent run for president due to her plans to tax the ever-loving hell out of the rich, which certainly includes Schultz. Her comments were obviously made in reference to the suggestions given to her when she decided to run for Congress without any prior experience governing.
Like it or not, Americans view massively successful businesspeople like Shultz or President Donald J. Trump as presidential contenders because they have experience running massive organizations, not entirely dissimilar to the federal government. In this sense, they have the requisite experience in which voters are interested.
Ocasio-Cortez is so self-absorbed that she cannot understand the difference between herself, whose only experience in the private sector was fetching gin and tonics, and Shultz, who at his peak was one of the most powerful businesspeople on the planet. This is who the fine people in New York’s 14th District elected to represent them in Congress.

COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud
Lankford is an ethnomasochist.
Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.
Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.
The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”
“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.
“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.
Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.
“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:
Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”
In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.
“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”
The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
