Move over Green New Deal, AOC eyes a new plan of action — like the others, she probably didn’t think this through

Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has moved on after being widely mocked for her failed war on farting cows.

Now, the former bartender is targeting President Donald Trump’s 2017 temporary travel ban, which was upheld by the US Supreme Court in June 2018.

Obama Targeted the Same Muslim Countries

In his majority opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts noted that Trump’s “policy covers just 8% of the world’s Muslim population.”

Justice Roberts also pointed out the Muslim-majority countries named in Trump’s 2017 executive order were identified as “countries of concern” by Barack Hussein Obama’s administration.

Roberts wrote: “The entry restrictions on Muslim-majority nations are limited to countries that were previously designated by Congress or prior administrations as posing national security risks.”

‘Ocasio-Cortez Is a Liar’

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra smacked down AOC, pointing out that the travel ban can’t be a “Muslim ban” because it only applied to 5 Muslim-majority countries but allows travel from the 44 other Muslim-majority countries in the world.

“Daily reminder that Ocasio-Cortez is a liar: There are 7 nations on the travel ban list — which are considered to be terror hot spots — only 5 of them are Muslim-majority nations.

There are *50* Muslim majority nations in the world, meaning the ban did *not* apply to 90% of them.”

Obama Had 6 Travel Bans: Where Was the Outrage?

Ken Paxton, the Attorney General of Texas, recently pointed out that other presidents — including Barack Obama — have instituted travel bans in the past, and the media silence about those were deafening.

“You know that there have been 44 total travel bans since 1980 by presidents, and these are the only 2 that the courts have ever stopped?” Paxton said. “Obama did 6; no one cared about those.”

Instead of worrying about a 90-day travel ban that would have expired on its own by now had the Democrats not blocked President Trump’s executive order two years ago, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez should be worried that she doesn’t end up in jail for tax evasion.

Accountant: Ocasio-Cortez Ignored Tax Warrants

As BizPac Review reported, AOC wants Americans to pay more taxes, but she didn’t paid her own back taxes from 2012.

A book company AOC founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in the Bronx still owes New York State over $1,870 in corporate taxes, according to public records.

The state dissolved her company, Brook Avenue Press, in October 2016, presumably due to its failure to pay corporate taxes or file a tax return.

In typical socialist fashion, Ocasio-Cortez’s “book-publishing company” got cheap office space as part of a city-subsidized program.

However, there are no records of Brook Avenue Press ever having published a single book.
