Ocasio-Cortez Hints at Abuse of Power

On the one hand, this is astonishing. On the other hand, it isn’t.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the powers of her elected office to retaliate against Donald Trump Jr. on Friday after the president’s son posted a meme trolling her on his personal Instagram account.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”

It is astonishing because you have a soon-to-be government official threatening to use her official power to subpoena someone who trolled her on Instagram. Put aside for a moment that it was Trump Jr. who trolled her. It was just a person expressing a contrary opinion on Instagram and her immediate impulse is to bring down the official weight of the federal government on him.

It is not that astonishing because this is what socialists like Ocasio-Cortez do – every time they get into power. They use the police power of government as a weapon to attack dissenters and non-believers. We’ve seen it in other nations. We’ve seen it in Wisconsin with the John Doe investigations of Walker. We’ve seen it in Obama’s IRS. There is no doubt in my mind that Ocasio-Cortez would abuse her power to go after her dissenters. The only thing she lacks is the intelligence to keep quiet about it.

    A rare glimpse into what liberals really think and do.

    She is scary.

    Very Stalin-like.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Chant a little louder, “Lock her up!”.

    Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    I did not imply she did anything to merit her being locked up.

    She is sounding like many of the most abusive leftist/socialist/communist leaders/thugs in the lens of history.

    When she actually abuses her power, then I will chant “lock her up”.

    However, currently, she has not power.

    Quite the statement from one of very, very tiny brain. From her lies of a poor upbringing to her hilariously stupid comments on economics, she represents the Democrat Party extremely well.

  5. Merlin

    Pelosi is going to have a difficult time keeping this one in line.

  6. Pat

    I think it’s called, “punching back”.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann

    Hard to believe Democrats elected someone dumber than a salamander.

  8. Le Roi du Nord


    You are getting paranoid.  My comment wasn’t aimed at you (even though it probably applies), but rather at this;

    “every time they get into power. They use the police power of government as a weapon to attack dissenters and non-believers”.

    Sounds just like what 45 has been saying for years.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    Dan Quayle misspelled Potato and liberal media crucified him for years.

    She gets a basic civics lesson wrong every week…crickets from the compliant, disgusting,liberal media.

    Do you support her being crucified in media worse than Dan Quayle? He was Einstein next to her.

    Why or why not?

    >Chant a little louder, “Lock her up!”.

    And you have fallen back to the “the other guys do it too” excuse.  Have you no original thought?

    every time they get into power. They use the police power of government as a weapon to attack dissenters and non-believers

    True dat.  Obozo/Holder and the Milwaukee DA are excellent examples, but hardly the only ones.  Clintoncide was a bit extreme, but it was there for all to see.

    Payback will be a bitch when it comes.  Ask Macron.

  12. MjM

    Kevin sweat: “Hard to believe Democrats elected someone dumber than a salamander.”

    No, not really.

    She is just another in a long, long succession of Dumbocrats. Claire McCaskill, Bernie Sanders, Fauxahontis, Mazi “We Be Smart” Hirono, Spartacus, Hank “Guam will capsize!” Johnson, Maxine Waters, P-P-Pelosi, Chuckles Schumer, Sheldon “Boof” Whitehouse, Barack Hussein “Thank Me!” Obama, Elijah Cummings, Harold Nadler, Kamala “I know nut ting” Harris…..

    And that’s just a sample of the national lever.

  13. dad29

    MjM, I have to respectfully part company with you on some of those names.  McCaskill is stupid, same with Hirono, Guam-man, Waters, Cummings, Nadler.  You forgot another cranial-vacuum:  Tammy Baldwin.  Locally, Tom Barrett and Tony Evers …..and What’s-Her-Hat-Today Moore.

    Schumer, Pelosi, Spartacus, Obozo–they are not box-of-rocks dummies at all.  They are all street-smart albeit with horribly mis-shapen philosophy.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    D’s have no lock on low wattage legislators.  Just tale a look at Gohmert, Grothman, and Sunspots Johnson.

  15. dad29

    Gohmert plays the ‘dumb Texan’ part very well.  You don’t want to get into a crossfire with him.  Grothman….well…..he advertises “conservative” and votes whatever way Ryan tells him to, which is usually Lefty.  RoJo is a very decent guy–look at his inner-city jobs program, which is working extremely well.  As to IQ….he’s prolly a touch above average.
