Democrat Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) is the representative from Long Island City where Amazon was going to put their headquarters. Along with many other Democrats Ms. Maloney is stunned at how the moonbat wing of the party has taken over.
AOC and her followers think a ‘tax abatement’ is an actual bucket of pre-existing cash they can now spend to improve New York schools and infrastructure. No, seriously, they actually believe this… It’s far beyond economic dissonance, it’s Moonbattery.
70% tax rates. Free college and medicare for everyone. Cars and airplanes made illegal. A ban on cows and meat. Social justice mobs who cheer destroying jobs… Alexandria Occasional-Cortex and her millions of followers is the gift that keeps on giving.
Chicago police have arrested two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo (pictured below), and are calling them potential suspects in the alleged attack against actor Jussie Smollett.
The arrest could be problematic for the victim if the police request a line-up to identify the perpetrators. Previously, the actor stated the attack was carried out by two white males wearing MAGA hats. Based on an investigative review of the alleged attackers they do not appear to meet the profile.
Chicago – Two potential suspects in the alleged racial attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett have been arrested, Chicago police said Friday. […] Police also confirmed “they have a relationship with [Jussie].”
This news comes hours after police told ABC News they were classifying them as potential suspects.
“Detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline as our investigation continues,” police said. (read more)

Oh dear, once again a high-profile hate crime claim is exposed as a hoax. Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News in Chicago that police are investigating actor Jussie Smollett and two men who staged the attack; allegedly because Smollett was being written out of his television show “The Empire”.
What a mess. Hopefully police will file charges against the fraudsters.
Amazon announced today it was canceling a plan to build new East Coast headquarters building in New York City. [The planned building in Virginia will go ahead.] The company said it would not look for a new location to replace the cancelled $2.5 billion Long Island City project. The cancellation also means the loss of 25,000 new jobs.
“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” Amazon spokeswoman Jodi Seth said in a statement.
A socialist political movement led by New York Representative Ocasio-Cortez who are against allowing Amazon to receive $3 billion in tax abatement incentives, was cited as the primary reason for the cancellation.

The actual budget appropriations bill is seven compartments consisting of more than 5,000 pages. However, here is the 29 page summary outlining the key elements as negotiated by congress.
WARNING: This is a bad deal, but it reflects the UniParty reality within congress. Take a deep breath; don’t lash out. Remember, there are very few MAGA minded representatives. This was negotiated by two wings of the same corporate bird and both want open borders.
- Provides $1.375 billion, or $4.325 billion less than the $5.7 billion the Trump administration requested, for a very limited 55 miles of physical barrier that can only be placed along the southern border in *only* the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
- Contains language allowing only fencing designs in use as of 2017.
- No funding for new border patrol agents above the current on board levels.
- Does not fund the Administration’s request for joint detention facilities.
- No funding for additional enforcement and removal field personnel.
(Via Ryan James Girdusky) Border wall bill is out, here are some highlights:
$415 million for humanitarian aide
$77 million for opioid equipment
1,200 new Customs and Border Patrol Agents (retain current levels)
The bill expands Catch and Release by reducing the number of border beds from 49,060 to 40,520.
No funding for additional enforcement and removal field personnel. – that means no more ICE agents to deport people already in the country.
Expands the Alternatives to Detention program from 82,000 to 100,000… so instead of housing family units at the border- they get moved into the interior where they almost always stay in the country permanently.
Provides $40 million for additional ICE staffing dedicated to overall ATD (Alternatives to Detention) case management, particularly for asylum seekers… so no new ICE agents, but money to ICE to help illegal aliens settle in a non-detention center in the country.
The bill gives over $1 billion for the Smithsonian.
$3.4 billion in refugee assistance – $74 million more than last year.
$4.4 billion in international disaster assistance – $100 million more than last year.
Does not eliminate any foundations that Trump wanted to get rid of including: The Asia Foundation, the U.S. African Development Foundation, the Inter-American Foundation, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
Israel, Ukraine, and Jordan receive $5.3 billion for border security fencing.
The language of the bipartisan border security funding legislation is still being written. Unfortunately, reports indicate Democrat language will be inserted into the DHS funding bill that will allow any town, city, municipality, mayor, city manager or local council within any border state to veto the construction of any structural border security wall or fence.
This definitely sounds like an approach the Lawfare group would be assisting with. Despite overwhelming support from the majority of Americans, the DC Uniparty seems to consistently find a way to usurp national sovereignty. Very frustrating.
al-Qaeda is at the functional military end of the Muslim Brotherhood spectrum. The Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella political face for multiple factions of radical Islam.
al-Qaeda’s representative to congress, Ilhan Omar (AQ-MN), was given a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Earlier today al-Qaeda’s rep had a heated exchange with Elliot Abrams, the U.S. special envoy to Venezuela.
The visual of al-Qaeda seated under the capitol dome of the U.S. congress is quite stunning. Watching al-Qaeda directly question U.S. officials from the dais of a congressional committee is something I never thought we would see. Quite remarkable:
