In Trump’s first rally since the Mueller Report dropped, the crowd was feeling feisty.
When Don Jr. gave some opening remarks before the President took the stage, he happened to mention how crazy the politics on the Left are getting.
How — apparently — Alexandria Occasional-Cortex is becoming the real nexus of power in her party now.
She’s ‘making a list’ of Democrats that will need to be primaried for the ‘sin’ of voting for the interests of their constituents rather than the party line… and she managed to bully Pelosi out of explicitly denouncing anti-semitism.
She’s telling Senators — Senators! — to vote ‘Present’ on her own still-born brainchild, the Green New Deal… and they listen! Senate Votes 57-0: AOC’s GND Is DOA
She’s the ‘boss now‘ (how bow dah?)
This star power of hers is strange, considering the rest of her party are just as elected as she is, are universally more experienced, and are, for the most part, far more intelligent and knowledgeable. But she has power, connections and a ‘movement’ behind her… and that’s the real power base of the Democrat Party.
The President’s son said it well — and listen to the crowd react:

Who could have guessed that making yourself out to be an American Aristocrat with the presumed moral authority to tell the little people (‘mere’ citizens) what changes the new dictates her Green New Fiat will demand of us would be considered somehow… obnoxious?
Or that free citizens don’t appreciate her use of Congressional authority to bully banks to stop supporting businesses she personally finds distasteful?
New polls show that marching lockstep behind her may not be the best strategy for their party. The good news is that even if we warned them that it’s bad for their party, they wouldn’t believe us.
They’d chalk it up to being ‘scared’ of a ‘dynamic young woman of color’ and start spewing talking points about patriarchy and white supremacy or something.
But here’s Quinnipiac’s latest survey:
The Quinnipiac University survey, which also included multiple questions about various issues and figures in the Democratic Party, shows 36 percent of respondents gave Ocasio-Cortez an unfavorable rating while 23 gave her a favorable one. Thirty-eight percent said they didn’t know enough about her.
Thirty-six percent of respondents said Ocasio-Cortez is a bad influence on the party while 33 percent of voters said she was a good influence.
The only age group in which she registered positive favorability numbers was among likely voters aged 18-34. Among millennials, she received a 35 percent favorable rating compared to to 23 percent unfavorable.
“All is definitely not A-OK for AOC. Most voters either don’t like the firebrand freshman Congresswoman or don’t know who she is,” Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement after the poll was released.

But if this is what they really want for their party, who are we to stop them?
Maybe they should double down. Lean harder into that Socialism that we’re ‘so afraid of’.
Are they trying to set up a repeat of the election in 1984? Because most of us would be perfectly fine with that.
