A Good Democrat

By Patrick Van Roy On December 8th, 2018

They haven’t even been sworn in yet and they are involved in ethical violations…… The next two years are going to be a blast…….

 

 

Ocasio-Cortez Threatens To Retaliate Against Trump Jr. Over Meme, Twitter Explodes With Accusations Of Ethics Violations

 

A source close to Donald Trump Jr. says that they expect an ethics complaint will be filed.

 

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.”

“Have fun!” she concluded.

@Ocasio2018

I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.

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.

Have fun!

Donald Trump Jr. trolls Ocasio-Cortez with meme implying socialists eat dogs https://wapo.st/2RGmYfl 

36.9K people are talking about this

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to this Instagram post from Trump Jr.:

Almost immediately, numerous political analysts, commentators, and pundits noted that Ocasio-Cortez’s comments likely constituted an ethics violation.

“It’s worth noting that the official House Ethics Manual explicitly prohibits the kind of threat that @Ocasio2018 just issued against @DonaldJTrumpJr for his refusal to support her political agenda,” The Federalist’s Sean Davis wrote on Twitter.

  1. One major issue is that she can’t issue a subpoena. The House as a body can issue a subpoena but she can’t. So she didn’t actually threaten Trump Jr with something she can actually do. So it isn’t an ethics violation.

  2. Not that she knew that at the time her subsequent tweeted correction is Trumpian in its self-promotion). She is dumb as paint and the sooner the Party treats her as a fringe politician and not some rising star the better.

  3. Guys, when she referred to the “body” she clearly wasn’t talking about her own.

    But anyone who annoys the Trumps and their associates can’t be bad.

    PvR, I doubt if you’d even recognise a “socialist” if you ever saw one.

  4. A politician gets involved in a twitter spat with an opponent. Absolutely shocking immature behaviour. I am sure the White House will speak out reminding elected officials of their dignified duties. 😉

  5. She is seriously stupid, yes

    She’s made many dumber errors than this, including mega math errors

  6. So Phantom then she is the perfect counter point to the turnip

    Maybe they can have a stupid off for the championship

  7. Yes

    Those who support either aren’t really into competence

  8. Noel just so you know my initials are PVR Van Roy is two words but one name….. My middle name is Michael not Van…..

    As for the young lady in question she’s just great entertainment.

  9. Traditionally, Dutch names with ‘van’ (Dutch for ‘of’ or ‘from’) are lower case. Additionally, when it comes to initials, Dutch names ignore the ‘van’ in initials. So for example the former Prime Minister of the Netherlands is Dries van Agt, rather than what the Americanised spelling would be which would be Dries Van Agt. His initials would also have been DA (technically AA as he was Andreas), rather than DVA (AVA).

    So, if the same rules as were applied by the Dutch were used by yourself Patrick, your would be Patrick van Roy, and your initials would be PR.

  10. I am sure Patrick will come back with..

    “F*** the Dutch” 🙂

  11. but I’m American so it’s Van Roy……

    I like the Dutch….. F**k the French as the call the army out to silence their peoples complaints.

    Paris erupts again: Tear gas and water cannon are fired at ‘yellow vest’ rioters as ‘Day of Rage’ clashes lead to more than 700 arrests – with protests now spreading across Europe to Brussels and Amsterdam

    Peace in Europe.

  13. Torching other peoples cars, vandalising property, smashing shop windows, setting fire to Christmas trees and displays. Is that what you mean by “peoples complaints” ?

  14. Colm.

    Yeah, I mean if they want “change”.

    They should jolly well write strong letters to their ” leaders”, or even more useless…vote.

  18. The rioters in Paris are spoilt brats with absolutely NO legitimate grievances. They deserve everything the police throw at them.

  19. No Colm it was ‘antifa’ and climate changers rioting against the EU, ‘elites’ and Macron. I know this because three Americans told me it last night.

  25. Yes Harri those lazy pampered spoilt brat French lorry drivers, taxi drivers, farmers and wine makers. Whinging froggy parasites, the lot of them !

    I’m with Patrick……. F*** the French. 😉

  26. And eff their lovely cheeses and wines too.

  27. Don Junior is a piece of work for sure. He is firmly in Mueller’s sights.

    “Even before the recent spate of court filings, Mueller had generated impressive results. He has indicted over 30 people, including teams of Russian social media manipulators and intelligence agency hackers, and he has convicted Trump’s former campaign chair (Manafort), national security adviser (Michael Flynn), personal attorney (Michael Cohen) and other campaign advisers (Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos) of federal crimes. Even if Mueller’s investigation had ended two weeks ago, it would have uncovered historically significant corruption at the highest levels of politics and government…

    First, the evidence mounts that Trump has committed federal crimes unrelated to Russia. When Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations based on hush money payments to Stephanie Clifford and Karen McDougal, he testified under oath that he had acted “in coordination and at the direction of” Trump. In his sentencing memo filed last week, Cohen reiterated that he committed the campaign finance crimes “in accordance with [Trump’s] directives.” When Cohen pleaded guilty, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said “the President in this matter has done nothing wrong, and there are no charges against him.”
    In Friday’s filing, the SDNY writes that “with respect to both payments, [Cohen] acted in accordance with and at the direction of” Trump. That is a very big deal. It is one thing for Cohen unilaterally to claim Trump participated in a federal crime; it is another for the United States Department of Justice to confirm it. (Shortly after the public filing of the SDNY memo, Trump — entirely inexplicably — tweeted, “Totally clears the President. Thank you!”)
    The evidence also builds that Trump has attempted to obstruct justice by impeding the investigation of Russian election interference: the firing of FBI Director James Comey; the browbeating of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing from the Russia investigation; the replacement of Sessions with Matthew Whitaker, who had repeatedly and publicly attacked Mueller’s investigation; and Trump’s inflammatory statements attacking cooperating witnesses and praising those who refuse to testify.

    Federal crimes of any variety are a big deal, and federal crimes committed by the President are monumental…

    Second, it is increasingly clear that Trump had deep financial and political incentives to curry favor from Russia as the 2016 election approached. Mueller’s recent filings have begun to answer the “why?” question: why did Trump want so badly to please Russia and why did Russia want to help him win the presidency?
    Cohen’s guilty plea last week, and the sentencing memos that followed, provide the clearest answer we have seen thus far. We now know that, as late as June 2016 — well into the presidential campaign and after Trump had become the presumptive nominee — the Trump Organization sought to build a tower in Moscow and needed approvals from the Russian government to make it happen…”

  28. More trouble in paradise. John Kelly is leaving as Trump’s chief of staff. It’s clear that the jerk is impossible to work for.

  29. Paul

    I don’t like French cheese or wine. Vastly overrated.

  30. Bit strong to say you dislike them Colm?

    Spanish tinto is vastly superior to the French equivalent.

  31. “It’s clear that the jerk is impossible to work for.”

    I think the sheer turnover of jobs in the Trump White House would suggest that. However turnover in the Chief of Staff position is nothing new. Most Presidents have several per term. In fact in his first term in office Barack Obama had four.

    Pretty much after Bob Haldeman (and Watergate) the position has pretty much become a temporary one. Gerald Ford had three. Carter two. Reagan had one in his first term and three in his second. Bush Snr had 3. Clinton had two in his first term, two in his second. Bush Jnr had two over both terms. As I said Obama had four in his first term, and one in his second.

  32. Colm

    There is a universe of French wine and cheese

    Don’t judge French wine by the $10 bottle that you bought at Tescos

  33. While on the subject of Trump and social media:

    MUST WATCH:
    Unearthed video shows Michael Flynn bragging about being the “General of an army of digital soldiers waging an insurgency of irregular warfare”.

  34. £10!? What are you, Colm? Some kinda snob!? 😂

    I have to say, I love French wine. The nicest wine I have ever tasted was from a small, family-run vineyard in SW France. Absolutely gorgeous, and no hangover.

    Cheese, in all it’s rancid forms, is disgusting. The only ‘food’ that is considered nicer the more mould it develops 😂

  35. Phantom

    To be honest I don’t think I have ever bought a bottle of French wine. I always choose wine from other countries. I prefer reds from Spain, Chile and sometimes Australians and whites from New Zealand, Chile and Germany. I have had French wine in restaurants and at other people’s homes but never really had one I have liked.

  36. Seimi. Phantom referred to $10 wine. I think he forgot I am a Londoner. Americans think everything is in dollars 😉

  37. IMO Spanish red is superior to all others but of course I am biased. I can’t abide white wine in any form and Champagne / Cava even less.

    Cheese, in all it’s rancid forms, is disgusting

    Yes, duly noted many times. You weirdo.

  38. I didn’t know how to easily make the pound sign on this thing

  39. “I didn’t know how to easily make the pound sign on this thing”

    Hold in your ‘Alt’ key and type 0163.

  40. Phantom. It’s OK, I know what you meant. I don’t know what the average price of wine is in the US but here most people wouldn’t pay more than about £5 for an everyday drinking wine . As to cheese, I know it’s ubiquitous and considered boring but I think you can’t beat a good extra mature cheddar.

  41. No alt sign on ipads

    £ ah here it is

    € and here is Harris favorite one also

  42. I think you can’t beat a good extra mature cheddar.

    A dry, fruity red and a good extra mature or vintage Cheddar is truly one of the joys of life Colm.

  43. Cheddar is wonderful

  44. I don’t know what the average price of wine is in the US but here most people wouldn’t pay more than about £5 for an everyday drinking wine .

    I’m in the company of peasants.

    Chilean wine & double Gloucester.

    You won’t go far wrong.

  45. //Hold in your ‘Alt’ key and type 0163.//

    £

    It works with the number pad on the right, but not with the numbers at the top of the keyboard. Hmmm…

  46. The strong and stable genius loses another key staff member, the 28th is 23 months:

    “John Kelly came into the job promising to bring military discipline to an administration riddled with leaks and palace intrigue. He can claim some success – but the leaks never completely disappeared and, by the end, the chief of staff was as deep into the back-stabbing and personnel drama as anyone.

    A White House job is never easy, but this administration has chewed through senior staff at a record pace. Donald Trump is on his third national security adviser, fifth communications director and soon to be third chief of staff. The one constant is the man in the Oval Office. He likes to say his administration operates like a well-oiled machine, but the grinding gears are amassing quite a professional body count.

    In total, 28 people have resigned or been fired from the White House during Mr Trump’s administration…

  47. Harri

    You wine snob. You can get perfectly decent wines for a fiver or just over in supermarkets nowadays. Or are you one of those people who would “never touch supermarket wine” and will only purchase their special tipples from a master wine merchants 🙂

  48. Colm.

    Nope, I was joking.

    ASDA do a very good Chilean wine, (Wineyard) Malbec, Merlot and Shiraz.

    £4.18

    Yes, its bottom shelf, but it should be on the top shelf, I noticed a while back some bloke loading his trolley up with several boxes, so I thought, he MST know something I don’t?

    He was right, its very good stuff.

  49. Harri

    I have had that wine. The Merlot and the Shiraz anyway. I agree they are fine. Actually in my opinion Chile is the only country that does good Red AND White wine. Other countries do well in one or the other.

  50. Colm

    Just checked among the recycling bottle stash.

    Its actually called “Winemakers Choice” – Valee Central

  51. Harri

    I have an image of your legs waving about upwards as you dive deep through your skip of two hundred empty wine bottles to find the one with that label 🙂

  52. Colm

    Builders skip size
