I LOVE this young woman. Future US President, if she can avoid taking the "Wellstone exit."

I have often thought the same thing. Then again, she is from New York. On top of the New Yorker thick skin, she is of Puerto Rican stock. We Puerto Ricans are old hands at playing dodge ball with TPTB, being a colonized folk for over a century (after hundreds of years of Spain's Imperialism!). 

I'll let you in on this. That type of person is NOT emotional AT ALL. AOC knows exactly when to let loose some vitriol and when not to. She also is clearly aware of the danger she faces from TPTB. Here's who is going to come after her BIG TIME, long before the FBI gets into the Wellstone AND JFK jr. aircraft "accident" skullduggery. It's OBAMA ! Wall Street Lackey Obama and Pelosi and Corporate Dumocrat pals are going to make her life as miserable as those SICK FU-CKS can. She KNOWS it and has plans, in place, ready to be used, modified and honed daily, on how to deal with it.

Sure, they may find some way to compromise her and shut her up. They will certainly try to tarnish her position and run her out with a trumped up claim that she "took a bribe" or something like that.

It might work against AOC, but it will not work against the tidal wave of ANGER against a system of STUPID, GREEDY exploitation of people and planet that is dooming our species and thousands of others that we depend on to survive. AOC is just the leading edge of a TSUNAMI that will destroy the polluter power structure. All those loyal FU-CKS like Mueller and Obama (and so on) will become irrelevant BECAUSE the loyal FU-CKS at the street level have kids EVERY DAY telling them that people like Greta Thunberg, AOC, Kevin Anderson, etc. are THE ONLY HOPE THEY HAVE. As Chris Hedges has correctly stated, Revolutions are successful when the "palace guards" refuse to be stupidly exploitative and cruel to fellow citizens. As soon as that happens, the Nomenclatura ASS-HOLES like Obama (and all the corporate Dumocrats) immediately change their tune, right along with all the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn funded Republicans, who will then claim a massive transition to Social Justice based Equality and Clean Energy is something they were "always in favor of" .

AOC may get taken out, though they will need to bring a sandwich if they think she is a pushover, but what she stands for will not.




 The Fossil Fuelers 🦖 DID THE Clean Energy  Inventions suppressing, Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks 🦀, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or   PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!

Mike Gravel Is Running for President — But He Doesn’t Want to Win

By ROBERT R. RAYMOND, TRUTHOUT

PUBLISHED April 18, 2019

The 88-year-old former senator from Alaska declared his candidacy after being approached by two teenage democratic socialists who wanted him to bring attention to a wide variety of policy positions that were being ignored by other Democratic candidates. Without the pressure to win, Mike Gravel is uniquely positioned to stretch the boundaries of acceptable debate and push progressive Democratic candidates further to the left.

Agelbert COMMENT: Berta Cáceres did the right thing. Evil people killed her for doing it.

Let us learn from her example to not fear, or ever hesitate, to do the right thing.

When all is said and done, doing the right thing, regardless of knowing we will be attacked by evil people for doing it, is the only thing that matters.
