As long as Ava #miniAOCofficial enjoys doing these videos she will continue to keep making them and as long as #AlexandriaOcasioCortez keeps being #AOC we will have plenty of material to keep making them as well.

The Attorney General needles the Speaker of the House.
Today at a law enforcement ceremony at Capitol:
AG Barr approached Pelosi, shook her hand: "Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?"
Pelosi smiled and, per a bystander, told Barr the House Sergeant at Arms was there should an arrest be needed. Barr laughed; walked away

Undoubtedly he had heard about this standard operational demoncrap-for-brains idea:
Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! Cheese it! It’s the Cops!
Polly want a lawyer!
A parrot in Brazil was taken into custody for warning his drug-dealing owner that cops were about to launch a raid — squawking, “Mummy, police!”
The green-feathered watchdog began screeching loudly the moment officers showed up at his home in the eastern city of Teresina, the UK Independent reported.
“He must have been trained for that,” a police officer involved in the operation told the paper. “As soon as police got close, he began shouting.”
The loyal loudmouth, whose name was not reported, was seized by cops and placed in a chicken wire cage at a local police station.
But the bird is refusing to sing like a canary.
“So far it hasn’t made a sound,” a local journalist reported, according to a paper.
The parrot’s owner, known as “India,” had been busted twice for drug trafficking in the past. Her husband, known only as Edvan, 30, was arrested during the raid when cops found crack cocaine in the home.
The parrot was later taken to the Teresina Zoo.
Pelousy compares Occasional-Cortex to a glass of water?
More and more of that circular firing squad.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday made a point to heap more praise on Democrats who flipped Republican seats in the 2018 midterms and downplayed representatives like herself and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who carried districts where a “glass of water” with a “D” next to it could win.
“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress [yeah right Nance] as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”
To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”
AOC’s ‘code-switching’ hypocrisy gets it’s proper razzing.
NABOO—Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has come under fire after giving a speech to a crowd of Gungan supporters on the planet of Naboo. Critics claim Ocasio-Cortez clearly shifted her speaking style to try to emulate the Gungans’ speech patterns, changing her speech to sound exactly like that of Jar Jar Binks.
“Meesa Ocasio-Cortez. Meesa gonna seize the means of production big-big,” she said as the Gungan crowd cheered. “Meesa your humble servant who’s in charge.” The congresswoman unveiled a plan to save Naboo, one which would coincidentally require giving her all the power and money. “Yousa planet gonna die big, icky icky goo goo if yousa don’t change your habits.” She pointed out that the ecosystem of the planet’s core was already changing, and the giant monsters which live down there will likely die within 12 Coruscant solar cycles.
“Yousa all gonna do whatever I say now, okeeday?” she added.
Some Gungans were offended by her remarks. “Ex-squeeze me, but wesa the ones who say ‘mesa,’ not yousa!” cried one Gungan in protest. Ocasio-Cortez ignored his comments, as he was sitting in the cheap seats.
Critics quickly called the obvious shift in speech patterns “pandering,” but Ocasio-Cortez immediately fired back on her Comlink, saying, “How wude.”
The Singularity Is Here. Unfortunately for our new AI overlords, the crusade to take over the world has been stopped in its tracks by an unlikely hurdle: a 16-year-old’s math test.
Faced with the same level of exam that a 16-year-old in the U.K. would take, according to a new paper by Google’s DeepMind, its cutting-edge AI flunked…
It turns out, according to the research, that even a simple math problem involves a great deal of brainpower, as people learn to automatically learn to make sense of mathematical operations, memorize the order in which to perform them, and know how to turn word problems into equations.
But artificial intelligence is quite literally built to pore over data, scanning for patterns and analyzing them. In that regard, the results of the test — on which the algorithm scored a 14 out of 40 — aren’t reassuring.
That’s a Dillon M134 minigun, supposedly in semi-auto and only $125,000

A few days ago, the new president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Abrader, demanded that King Felipe VI ask for forgiveness for the conquest by Spain, and now a mosque in Seville is doing the same but for the Reconquista (the Reconquest, when the Muslim rulers were driven out of Andalusia-Spain).The Ishbilia mosque has published a post on Facebook under the name of the Islamic Community itself and its president, Yihad Sarasua, in expressing “the sentiments among Spanish Muslims and those who for certain reasons, reside in Spain, for the lack of conciliation between the Crown and the heirs of the Andalusian legacy.”“Sir, being the King of Spain, I believe that the historical moment has arrived to carry out the recognition of the vileness, plunder, displacement and murders carried out by orders of the Catholic kings and their most direct collaborators, which culminated with the surrender of Granada and the breach of everything subscribed to the Muslim community”, reads the letter.Besides, he adds that the Muslims were subjected to a “constant persecution” that left “millions of dead”:“Never has existed such a fierce persecution and eagerness to eliminate a religious community, as was carried out by the old Spanish royalty in the times of Felipe II, an extermination that culminated in the War of the Alpujarres subsequent to the Pragmatic Sanction of 1567.”This is why King Felipe VI is asked by the mosque to apologise to the Muslim community.“As a descendant of the aforementioned kings, what a formidable opportunity you would have to demonstrate to the Muslim community your respect and your discrepancy, with the Islamic theses, apologising to our community for so many atrocities and interceding for the recognition of Spanish nationality for the descendants of Al Andalus, as was done with the Sephardic Jewish community.”So far King Felipe VI has not responded to the Muslim leader’s request.
According to AOC, Congress amended the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected:
"They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt dd not get reelected."

The ditzhead keeps illuminating just how stupid she really is.
And her constituents back in the Bronx are already complaining she isn’t doing her job as their Representative.
Amid her zeal to save the world with the Green New Deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ignored residents in her own Bronx back yard.
“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district.
Delgado, 40, says she has made numerous calls to Ocasio-Cortez’s offices in Washington and Queens and sent a barrage of tweets after the freshman lawmaker encouraged residents during a recent visit to a Bronx public library to hit her up on social media.
But she’s heard nothing back.
“NO email or contact on @AOC’s page except DC number which has full #voicemail and no one picks up,” Delgado tweeted on Monday.
When I lead off with ‘Crap-for-brains’ Mondays, I really lead off.
A video made its way to Facebook on Monday, showing clips of Venezuelan military forces taking part in “intense training” activities. The caption on the Facebook post asserts that the clip is not a “humorous television program” and that it was released by “the Venezuelan government to scare the US Marines.”
A highway patrolman high in California was a little confused when his onboard radar went off without another car in sight. The mystery was quickly solved, though, when a F-16 Fighting Falcon flew overhead, streaking low and fast over the lonely patch of winter road.
The video, shared by California Highway Patrol-Bishop station and credited to Officer Chris Bol, shows a patrolman’s Ford Explorer parked on the road, wind buffeting the camera microphone. Coming up from behind fast is a F-16 fighter jet, which flies on ahead and then banks to follow the road, rapidly fading from sight.
According to the CHP, the radar in the patrol SUV was “going crazy” even though Bol couldn’t see another car anywhere. But then the jet came into view. It seems likely this wasn’t the jet’s first pass, though—the camera is positioned exactly to catch the fighter’s approach.
Bishop is in California’s high desert country. It lies in a relatively flat basin with mountains to the west and east, as the video amply demonstrates. It’s not surprising that the highway patrol’s onboard radar picked the fighter up relatively far away. The fighter approaches from the north or south and then veers off to the west or east.
As for the F-16, the video isn’t clear enough to show the two letter tail code that would explain which base it was from. The jet could have been from the Arizona National Guard or Hill Air Force Base in Utah. Hill’s two resident fighter wings are in the process of transitioning to the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter, but the base is still a hub for F-16 upgrade and repair work.
“THIS is CNN.”
Hey CNN: you want an example of a President truly being distracted from important official business by personal matters? That would be Bill Clinton, being attended to by Monica Lewinsky while on the phone with a congressman regarding US troops in Bosnia. Now that’s a concerning distraction. Yet on this morning’s New Day, co-host John Berman fretted that President Trump’s signing of a check on days he was also fulfilling his official duties constituted a “jarring juxtaposition.” Alisyn Camerota echoed Berman’s concern over the “juxtaposition.”
That this was a ginned-up nothingburger is reflected in Berman’s supposed concern that Trump signed a check on February 14th, 2017, “just after Michael Flynn was pushed out of the White House.” But Flynn resigned on February 13th. So that “jarring juxtaposition” that has Berman so verklempt didn’t even happen on the same day. The faux outrage reached its absurd apotheosis when Camerota cited Trump for signing a check on the same day . . . that he pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey.
Little Miss Marxist™ revolutionary keeps threatening to kick her demoncrap colleagues off the .gov gravy train and she’s liable to discover just how deleterious to her health – political and personal – that might be.

In a closed-door session, a frustrated Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lashed out at about two dozen moderates and pressured them to get on board. “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision,” Pelosi said, according to two people present but not authorized to discuss the remarks publicly.
But Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election.
Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said she told her colleagues that Democrats who side with Republicans “are putting themselves on a list.”
“She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” Trent said, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
An Ohio music shop owner placed a sign in front of his shop turning away supporters of President Trump, saying he felt “unclean and dirty” from doing business with them.
The owner of Joe’s Music Shop in Willoughby, Ohio, placed a sign outside his store outright telling those who support Trump to go “shop somewhere else,” WOIO reported.
“Dear Trump sympathizers, I am truly sorry, however, I feel unclean and dirty accepting money from you. Please politely shop somewhere else,” the sign read. “Sorry, I would rather starve and close the store than participate in wrongdoing. Many blessings to you. I hope you understand.”

Ben Rhodes was right about the political reporters in DC;
They don’t know anything.
Where is Gary Larson when you need him?
I loved Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, Dilbert, and Bloom County, but I was in awe of The Far Side. Larson could do more in one panel — daily — than the best often did in three. And he was weird, and I like weird (you’d know that if you could see what I’m wearing right now).
Anyway, I could write about Larson all day long, so long as the armadillo I have under my breastplate doesn’t need to go to the bathroom. But I should get to the point.
Larson loved cows, and he made them into cultural things like no one before. “I’ve always thought the word ‘cow’ was funny,” Larson once said. “And cows are sort of tragic figures. Cows blur the line between tragedy and humor.”
And that’s why we need him now.
Contained within the FAQ for the Green New Deal is one of the greatest sentences ever written with the intention of being taken very, very seriously:
We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.
I love this sentence so much I want to stand outside its house holding up a boom box blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”

Great news. The scourge of racism has been cured in the best way possible: through the exuberant application of indigenous culture.
Pandemonium broke out on Clifton’s Fourth Beach on Friday when demonstrators arrived with a sheep which they slaughtered to exorcise the “demon of racism”.
Clifton is an upscale suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. It offers the most expensive real estate in the country, and no doubt is chock-full of well-to-do liberals who helped bring down Apartheid.
Uh oh. We have an intersectionality problem. Sheep are oppressed too:
Animal rights activists protested as the sheep arrived, one of them holding a sign saying: “End racism but don’t kill the sheep.”
Chumani Maxwele, formerly of Rhodes Must Fall, directed the ritual.
“We are going to untie the sheep and walk it to the ocean to waken Nxele’s spirit. Nxele’s spirit is along this ocean. Down with white racists, down,” he shouted.
The reference is to a savage who instigated an attack on a British garrison 200 years ago.
Maxwele then cut the sheep’s throat as other protesters burnt incense. He declared: “Today, the dignity of the black people has been restored. This is an offering to our ancestors.”
There followed a melee, as the black supremacists and animal rights advocates hurled obscenities and footwear at each other.
Yet again, we see that leftism can only be used to destroy. You may be able to wreck the established order with a temporary alliance of leftist groups, but you cannot establish a functional new one, because they will soon be at each other’s throats.
He’s not called “moonbeam” for nothing.
California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown warned that America and the rest of the world are falling behind in the fight against climate change and likened the challenge to fighting the Nazis in World War II.
In an interview for Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” the outgoing governor called on President Donald Trump to take the lead in addressing the issue. “Instead of worrying about tariffs, I’d like to see the president and the Congress invest tens of billions in renewable energy, in more-efficient batteries, to get us off fossil fuel as quickly as we can,” Brown said.
“I would point to the fact that it took Roosevelt many, many years to get America willing to go into World War II and fight the Nazis. Well, we have an enemy, though different, but perhaps, very much devastating in a similar way. And we’ve got to fight climate change. And the president’s got to lead on that.”
