I Wrote A Biography About AOC. She Was Once A Capitalist.

I spent months researching AOC for a biography. I found that she was once a capitalist, among other fascinating exclusive information.

Once upon a time, in the not-too-distant past, Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) was a capitalist.

My research began when my book publisher asked if I’d write a biography on the young congresswoman. I gladly obliged, fascinated by the prospect of learning about what makes a political phenomenon – perhaps even first hand.

But my book, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Her Mysterious Rise from Bartender to Congresswoman, does not include an interview with AOC. In fact, she and her staff stayed as far away from me as possible.

Though I did manage an exclusive interview with her spokesman Corbin Trent when I showed up at her office unannounced, I couldn’t help but think that her campaign was desperately trying to protect an image that it had cultivated for her.

I began thinking: what do we actually know about AOC?

The answer, in short, is not much.

Despite the hundreds of thousands of news headlines, AOC’s biography – at least the once cultivated by her campaign team – is short.

She was a bartender, then she worked for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-V.T.) in 2016 when he ran for president, then she ran for Congress.

She is, and always has been, a young socialist.

But what if I told you that wasn’t true?

What if I told you, instead, that AOC was actually a bona fide entrepreneur?

What if I told you that she complained on record in 2012 about how small business taxes were crushing private enterprise – particularly her private enterprise, Brook Avenue Press?

What if I told you that she is surrounded by upstart young capitalists, including her closest friends and boyfriend Riley Roberts?

That information turned AOC’s biography into a mystery (hence the title), and all the receipts can be found within the text. AOC did much more than mix Manhattans in Manhattan before running for Congress, and for some reason, her campaign people are hell bent on keeping that side of her story out of the public eye.

The book also includes bombshell interviews with local residents from her real hometown, an upper-middle class suburb of New York City called Yorktown Heights, which is nowhere even remotely near her claimed hometown of the Bronx, as well as other exclusive biographical information.

Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump

The GOP is crumbling.

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.

This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.

“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”

“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”

Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.

“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.

Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.

“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said. 

“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.

The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
