Close To Nearly

We came close to half of the House nearly dying on Wednesday.”

– By close to half, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez means none.

By contrast, inspired by Democrat hatemongers: The 2017 Congressional baseball shooting.

    I used to think “Half a Cortex” was a rude appellation.

    Now I realise it was a bloody compliment!!

    Would I give her one?

    Absolutely.

    Would I tell her my real name?

    Not a bloody chance!

    Would I I tell her “Just call me 1735099”?

    YES!!

  3. Some History

    This is the very short clip where the nitwit, AOC, makes that claim… among other nitwit claims.

    Ocasio-Cortez against GOP lawmakers suggesting a second impeachment of Trump would threaten unity..

    “We came close to half of the House nearly dying on Wednesday.”

    How?

    Anyway, I’m glad her tits are ok.

    Does AOC have close to nearly half a brain?

  6. WDYSIA

    Here is what another Democrat who was there said. This is the guy who founded Walk Away and was in the front row when Trump spoke at the Capitol Hill rally.

    Why would the RINOs not think they’d be first against the wall when the revolution came. Well now the revolution has arrived, and guess what guys?

    Trump please save us from these idiots. The majority of Australians do not realise the repercussions that will occur world wide as a result of their cheating.

    Brainless … and yet people voted for her.

    Well, at least today you didn’t refer to him as the “pussy grabber”, and then start sooking about the “vulgarity” on the site.

    “Would I give her one?

    Absolutely.

    Would I tell her my real name?

    With this I agree, yes.

    Alexandria Occasional-Cortex has truly splendid tits!

  22. Mother Lode

    Why would the RINOs not think they’d be first against the wall when the revolution came.

    They all think that if they submit they will be OK.

    But the people they submit to don’t respect them. (They don’t even really respect their allies.) But these guys? They were only going to be protected while they were useful, and would be put to the sword when that was useful.

    And all so unnecessary.

    The Republicans did win more votes than the Democrats (who had to mass print extra). There is more Republican support (inasmuch as Trump was part of them) than Democrats. They deliberately sided with the weaker team with the lower moral calibre.

    Re-post from November:

    It is well known that “Politics is show-business for ugly people”.

    Also well known, but MUCH less acknowledged is: “Show-biz is politics for the “beautiful” people”.
    Also well understood in both “fields of endeavour” is that: “Timing is everything”.

    Thus;
    https://thehill.com/changing-america/enrichment/arts-culture/524877-indoor-concerts-may-be-made-safe-from-coronavirus

    and

    This is Pfizer on the time-line a while back.

    “We are operating at the speed of science.” There it is, the magic worship word.

    “Since we must wait for a certain number of cases to occur, this data may come earlier or later based on changes in the infection rates.”

    https://www.pfizer.com/news/hot-topics/an_open_letter_from_pfizer_chairman_and_ceo_albert_bourla

    Then look at this article about the process.

    At that time, the companies decided to stop having their lab confirm cases of Covid-19 in the study, instead leaving samples in storage. The FDA was aware of this decision. Discussions between the agency and the companies concluded, and testing began this past Wednesday [Day after the election]. When the samples were tested, there were 94 cases of Covid in the trial.

    https://www.statnews.com/2020/11/09/covid-19-vaccine-from-pfizer-and-biontech-is-strongly-effective-early-data-from-large-trial-indicate/

    Imagine that. As soon as the voting was over, 94 cases magically appeared! It’s *science*!

    ” Mirabile dictu”, on high rotation. Res miranda, as well.

    This morning, THEIR ABCess is going full throttle on promoting “Impeachment” for Donald trump. Not that their efforts are to directly influence the actual USA. No their objective is to maintain a reasonably consistent dose-rate of a plethora of political toxins to the local “market”.

    Similarly “Nein” and ” CBS Down Under / Ten” are heavily into their self-appointed role as “opinion-shapers”. In this, they are merely a little ahead of the rest of the churnalist pack.

    This will NOT end well for the remaining sane members of the Australian population; that’s the plan, Stan.

    Can’t wait for the ol’ switcheroo with this one – it will be just like KK. “I don’t remember voting for her.”.

    After nearly four years with nothing to show for it who could blame them.

  32. AOC’s reaction reminds me of the “it might have been us” fantasy of the attendees at a past ALP National conference, when they donned their victimhood attire to indulge in a circle-jerk of imagined self-pity.

    From the 2011 Conference:

    “A tall young man whom Anders Behring Breivik did not kill on Utøya Island speaks of 80 suddenly massacred friends in lucid, unaccented English and we imagine a Young Labor gathering of 1970 – Carr, Keating, Richo, Brereton, Egan, Susan Ryan, Carmen Lawrence – thus decimated and all that fresh brave talent lost.”

    This is from the ABC web site. Of course it is.

  33. Roger

    The US is close to nearly fucked. And us too.

    We won the Cold War but lost the post-Cold War cold war against the enemies within, who exploited our inability to face the paradox of tolerance.

    Can someone buy the bloody woman a dictionary so she can look up the meaning of the words she uses? It was not an insurrection, it was a demonstration that was deliberately manipulated by some participants (probably not Trump supporters) to get out of hand.

  36. Snoopy

    Not close to half, but it’s a start.

  37. Mother Lode

    I wonder if the other waitresses in the bar where she worked would listen awestruck in the break room while she held forth on how they were oppressed and she had all the answers? Or if they said “Give it a rest, Alex. We’re going out clubbing after work. You can come as long as you don’t do your political thing.”

  38. Roger

    Occasional-Cortex can’t help that she’s a fool.

    The bigger problem is that the media takes her seriously.

  39. candy

    She’s just a liar and greedy for power and knows how to brainwash youngsters with talk of free money and peace for all and nonsense like that 12 year olds believe in.

    She is going on 35 or 40? so she knows what she is doing and saying.

    We came close to half of the House nearly dying on Wednesday.”

    Yes, BLM/Antifa activist leader John Sullivan, who negotiated with DC police for mob entry into the Capitol, was recorded as he advocated burning down the building.
    Unfortunately for John’s cause, there weren’t enough Antifa or OTT Q-nutters to overcome the disinclination of the thousands of genuine Trump supporters to loot, pillage and burn.

    Not a good idea at the moment in NSW.
    3-layer masks; 1.5m distancing; solo sex; no casual sex; take a shower first; use phone sex and video sex – all are RECOMMENDED at the moment, but still….

    I’m still trying to get my head around sex at 1.5m.

    They are incredibly lucky that not more of the protestors were armed with assault rifles, or sought to use them – or yes, lots of people could have died.

    All of which says more about Capitol security than it does about this particular protest.

    Superb hyperbole comrade. Excellent trollshit.

    Where were the people armed with assault rifles, Grigory? What sode ofnthe barricades where they on?

    It’s not clear to me what the first dud impeachment achieved? It seems to be a nothing event, meh they could run one weekly. Did it used to mean something I presume?

    The amount of money the Dems spent for such a tiny win is amazing.

  46. Mother Lode

    Sounds like she is close to saying 1/4 of 3/5 of nothing but forgot what she was saying and, gambling that other people had too, stopped with what she hoped seemed like finality.

  47. FelixKruell

    Rex:

    Where were the people armed with assault rifles, Grigory? What sode ofnthe barricades where they on?

    Thankfully very few came armed with assault rifles, as I said. But sadly some did.

    Another man allegedly showed up in the nation’s capital with an assault rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition and told acquaintances that he wanted to shoot or run over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, prosecutors said.
    The revelations are some of the most unsettling details federal prosecutors have made public this week as they detail the extent of the arsenal available to aid pro-Trump rioters who stormed the Capitol.

    And…

    A cooler containing a long gun and Molotov cocktails were also seized at the Capitol. And six firearms were recovered Wednesday, in addition to three the night before, according to Contee.

    And…

    Among them was Lonnie Leroy Coffman, 70, an Alabama grandfather who drove to Washington to attend Trump’s “Save America Rally” in a red GMC Sierra pickup packed with an M4 assault rifle, multiple loaded magazines, three handguns and 11 Mason jars filled with homemade napalm, according to court filings.

    Perfectly understandable. I’m sure there are a lot of unlikeable people in Congress, but judging by her behaviour, Nancy is a standout.

    Grigory, your side has not carried-on at this level since Sherman’s March to the Sea in 1864.

    We’ll conventiently ignore all those pallets of bricks and molotov cocktail makings that miraculously kept appearing on the streets of Portland, etc. immediately prior to all those ‘peaceful demonstrations,’ and focus exclusively on one mouthy old fart and a box.

    To paraphrase Orwell: All your spoutings are trollshit, Grigory. But some are shitter than others.

    Sorry Grigory, but this MSM trollshit about nasty MAGAts and gunses (in an area where it is illegal to open carry) and potential violence is pissweak, even by your lack of standards.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes a more cogent argument when she farts and sneezes at the same time…
