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:



If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
