We are all now dumber for what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to say

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to sound like a college student in an Introduction to Philosophy class, full of misinformation and ridiculous analogies and downright mistruths.

In her recent interview with PBS's Margaret Hoover, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Israel "the occupiers of Palestine."

Boy, she's really flexing that degree in International Relations from Boston University. Then there's this:

Well, I think the numbers that you just talked about is part of the problem. Right? Because we look at these figures and we say, oh, unemployment is low. Everything is fine, right? Well, unemployment is low because everybody has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their kids.

Uhhhh. Do what now?

As reported by Politifact, which awarded Ocasio-Cortez with the label of "Pants on Fire" on the Truth-o-Meter: "The Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps track of how many people work two jobs rather than just one. Over the past 12 months, the number of multiple job holders has ranged between 6 million and 7 million. That compares to more than 148 million Americans who are employed in a single job."

That difference is not only outlandishly different from Ocasio-Cortez's claim, it's dauntingly wrong. Look at the difference on a graph and, in comparison to the number of single jobholders, the portion of multiple jobholders barely appears. It's not anywhere close. In other words, Ocasio-Cortez is telling a lie—no, it's more than that, she's arrogantly stating a lie as if it is undeniable fact.

Host Margaret Hoover's measured response is excellent:

And so I do think that right now, we have this no-holds-barred wild West hyper capitalism, what that means is profit at any cost. Capitalism has not always existed in the world. And it will not always exist in the world. When this country started, we were not a capitalist -- we did not not operate on a capitalist economy. You know, the benefit of capitalism is that you engage in voluntary trade and because it creates value, it is the system that, unlike all the others has lifted more people out of poverty over the course of human history than any other system.

Ocasio-Cortez responded:

Well, so I think that those things that you talk about, that you discuss, are part of the course of human evolution. And so I would hope that the most recent economic system -- our current economic system is the one most beneficial for everyday people. But what we're also starting to say to see is that, first of all, I think when we talk about socialist -- especially Democratically socialist economies, first of all, they're done with the full input of everybody. You vote. It's democratic. So if something is not a good idea, it doesn't get voted for, ideally.

Oh, she must be talking about the totally corruption-free elections of socialist countries like USSR, Mao's China, Cuba—or, more recently, the "elections" held in Venezuela. Yeah, totally better than the "democracy" we have here in America. Does Ocasio-Cortez actually believe this crap? For some reason I get the impression she's never stepped foot in a socialist country. I mean—ugh, never mind. Actually, here's the only thing I have to say about Ocasio-Cortez and anything she has to say:



An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
