Generally, Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accepted all of the media fawning that’s come her way since she won a surprise upset in a primary and subsequently coasted through the general.
But when left-wing Vox’s Matt Yglesias tried to puff her as a 2020 presidential candidate, she hilariously shut him down on Twitter.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should run for president and dare the Supreme Court to stop her, argues
@mattyglesias,” said Vox on Twitter.

AOC is apparently too tired for that, having just switched careers from bartender to politician.
“How about… no. Sometimes political media is too fixated on personalities instead of policies. The whole country JUST went through an exhausting midterm election. We need a break. Can we instead talk about healthcare, a living wage, legalizing cannabis, GND, & other issues?” she said in response.

That’s sort of embarrassing for Yglesias, who fawned over her in his piece.
“Not everyone shares her brand of politics, of course, but her constituency has exploded beyond the initial set of ideologues who powered the challenge to Crowley because of her incredible wit, charisma, social media savvy, and basic political smarts,” he said.
Wit? It’s difficult to see where Yglesias came up with that. He is right about one thing, though: her political “smarts” certainly are “basic.”
“In a year when moderate incumbents generally didn’t lose primary challenges from the left and in which Our Revolution endorsees failed to flip a single GOP-held House seat, AOC constantly dominates the conversation — living rent-free in the heads of conservatives, racking up magazine profiles and Twitter followers, engaging supporters on Instagram in a heretofore unprecedented way, and pulling back the curtain on some of the seamier aspects of ‘business as usual’ in the US Congress,” he continued.
This makes total senses – magazine profiles, Twitter followers and Instagram usage are definitely what ordinary Americans are looking for in a presidential candidate. Never mind that AOC can barely elucidate any coherent policy point without tripping over herself.
If the piece weren’t funny enough, AOC’s rejection of it made it that much sweeter. I suspect that she will be receiving an angry text – or perhaps an Instagram direct message – from Yglesias saying something along the lines of “wtf? lol.”

National Review Spits on Whistleblowers Attesting to Massive Vote Fraud, Endorses Election Rigging
The editors at the National Review have released an op/ed that essentially endorses widespread Democrat vote rigging and denigrates the efforts of whistleblowers who have attested via sworn affidavit under penalty of perjury to witnessing fraud on election day.
“The chief driver of the post-election contention of the past several weeks is the petulant refusal of one man to accept the verdict of the American people,” the editors wrote.
The editors paid lip service to concerns “about the security of mail-in ballots and the process of counting votes” but only to sweep the massive evidence of fraud under the rug. They claim that Trump has circulated “already-debunked claims and crackpot conspiracy theories about Dominion voting systems,” without doing much of anything to address many credible claims about the vote hacking software.
National Review proclaims the honor and the integrity of Republican officials who are refusing to investigate the electoral abnormalities or use their constitutionally-delegated powers to overturn the steal.
“Trump’s most reprehensible tactic has been to attempt, somewhat shamefacedly, to get local Republican officials to block the certification of votes and state legislatures to appoint Trump electors in clear violation of the public will,” the editors wrote.
“This has gone nowhere, thanks to the honesty and sense of duty of most of the Republicans involved, but it’s a profoundly undemocratic move that we hope no losing presidential candidate ever even thinks of again,” they added.
It is worth noting that the op/ed by National Review did not mention the hundreds of sworn affidavits attesting to fraud one single time. The article makes it clear that these editors are a party to the color revolution coup that is underway against the president.
Big League Politics has covered the whistleblowers who have come forward amidst tremendous institutional pressure to tell the story of how the vote was stolen on election night:
Poll worker Mellissa Carone is going public after signing an affidavit that detailed extensive abnormalities happening at the absentee ballot counting board in the TCF Center in Detroit on election night.
Carone wrote in her affidavit about how ballots were scanned and counted multiple times at the facility. She has also attested that Republicans were deliberately disenfranchised throughout the process and robbed of their rights so they could not snuff out any potential fraud.
“I witnessed countless workers rescanning the batches without discarding them first which resulted in ballots being counted 4-5 times,” Carone wrote in her affidavit.
She appeared on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Wednesday. Dobbs described an IT specialist who was “contracted by Dominion voting services to offer technical support while votes were being counted in Detroit.” Her attorney, David Kallman also appeared on the broadcast alongside her. She explained how mysterious food vans showed up bringing up cargo that did not appear to be food.
“I worked a 24 hour shift… I was there during their day shift and their night shift. The city provides the workers with food for their shift. Well, they only had enough food for one-third of their workers. So, that is the reason why they were claiming that these vans were brought in, but these vans did not have food in them,” Carone said.
“I was not allowed over in that area at all, but the van was definitely not big enough to be carrying food for two-thirds of those workers,” she added.
Kallman explained how he is proceeding with lawsuits to create an audit for the elections to ensure full transparency.
“Michigan now has a new constitutional provision that allows voters to request a results-oriented audit to ensure the accuracy and integrity of elections, so we are asking the court, and we did it today…The judge is going to rule at noon on Friday as to whether or not an injunction will issue to stop the certification of the vote and whether or not there or not will be an audit order as well as a protective order to protect evidence so it is not destroyed,” Kallman said.
The editors at National Review have picked a side and will have to live with the consequences of their behavior if the dubious election is overturned and those guilty of treason are punished appropriately.
