CJ Pearson, a 16-year old black pro-Trump blogger, tweeted that the woman next to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kept trying to look the other way as Trump gave his State of the Union speech. US Representative, Nydia Velazquez, a Democrat, wrote back, “I’m not “the woman sitting next to her”. “@AOC and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us.” The Congresswoman now is facing backlash on Twitter for telling a kid that Americans should be afraid of Congress. Pearson, however, got it right when he replied: “Nydia, nothing about you nor [Ocasio-Cortez] scares me. It’s your policies — that jeopardize the stability of our nation and the future of my generation — that scare me,” -GEG
Democratic New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez told pro-Trump teen pundit CJ Pearson that “you’re right to be afraid of us” Tuesday after he referred to her as “the woman next to” Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet about the State of the Union address.
“Hi CJ Pearson, I’m not ‘the woman sitting next to her,’” Velazquez wrote on Twitter Tuesday night. “[Ocasio-Cortez] and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”
Pearson, 16, had joked on Twitter that “[Ocasio-Cortez] has been talking this entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way” during the State of the Union address Tuesday night.
Pearson responded to Velazquez’s remarks Wednesday.
“I’m sorry, Congresswoman, but as [President] Donald Trump said — socialism will NOT be the future of this country. And Nydia, nothing about you nor [Ocasio-Cortez] scares me. It’s your policies — that jeopardize the stability of our nation and the future of my generation — that scare me,” he wrote on Twitter.

A woman, 73, who uses a walker, was blocked and harassed when she tried to put out a fire in a trash barrel. She had made a BLM sign to show her support for the group but discovered the hard way that she was dealing with people who had the destruction of America as their goal, not racial justice.
It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law. That IS the end game of the deep state. Look up the definition of ‘controlled opposition’ and read it twice.
Both the US Surgeon General and the CDC have flip-flopped on this issue but keep returning to the ‘wear-the-mask’ position, perhaps as a psychological measure to convince the sleeping public convinced that the pretended pandemic is real.
All of these actions are unconstitutional, because they are within the jurisdiction of Congress, not the President. However, the government will argue – and the courts will uphold – the idea that the Constitution is suspended in times of national emergency, which is in the power of the President to declare.
Teams now are stopping travelers arriving in the city by train, requiring them to complete a health-status form, and advising that they face fines as high as $10,000 for failing to quarantine. Officials say that the effort relies on voluntary compliance – for now.
In a vote-by-mail system, a large percentage of voters, who otherwise might go to the polls, would not be able to vote. No one knows for sure what will happen to those undeliverable ballots, and it is not paranoia to believe that many of them will be mailed in by unknown partisan activists.
The new law would permit some voters, namely the elderly and those with physical disabilities, to request that someone else fill out and hand in their ballot, a practice Republicans repeatedly decried as illegal “ballot harvesting.”
Columnist Seth Barron says the lawsuit is being used to blame the NRA for the massive 200% increase in shootings, instead of Democrat policies such as releasing prisoners, eliminating bail, restricted police power, and cutting the budget of law enforcement.

The reality is that there is more crime in minority neighborhoods, more need for police intervention, and more exposure to the possibility of excessive violence.

The Democratic Party has published a list of desired categories for women in office. The list does not include white or Christian. Here is the order of their preferences: Black women, LGBT women, Muslim women, Disabled women, Jewish women, Latina women, Millennial women, Jewish women (listed twice), AAPI (Asian) women, and More women. The Party says the reason white and Christian are not listed is that these already are well represented. Statistically, the listed categories predominantly vote Democrat.
‘Universal basic income’ is a socialist scheme that takes money from taxpayers and redistributes it to mostly non-taxpayers. Stockton, a city in California, will spend $900,000 over 18 months to subsidize 100 residents with $500 monthly. [We expect the program to become permanent in California, however, because legislators there do not care if a program is too expensive or unsustainable so long as it gets them elected.]
A mistrial was declared in the corruption case against Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), but he still faces an ethics investigation that will include allegations that were excluded by the judge from his trial. Those allegations include lurid sex acts with underage girls.
