After Stinging Rebuke of AOC, Pelosi Hands Powerful House Committee Seat to Freshman BLM Activist — and Then Some

As my RedState colleague streiff reported on Friday, House Democrats on Thursday handed “would-be Democrat thought leader and power broker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a humiliating loss in her quest for a seat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.”

Ocasio-Cortez fell to Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) in a 46-13 beatdown.

Before we continue, Speaker Nancy Pelosi gets what she wants from the Democrat Caucus. And when she doesn’t? There is hell to pay, and AOC is no doubt paying hell as we speak after publicly calling for the ouster of Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chucky Schumer and replacing them with left-wing lunatics — just like her, of course.

Bottom line: AOC might have lost the seat in a “secret vote,” but make no mistake; Madam Speaker was up to vacant eyeballs in the engineering of that vote. Other bottom line: As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

Analogically speaking, of course.

This was a stinging rebuke of Socialist Barbie AOC because of her silly hysteria over all things climate. The House Energy and Commerce Committee maintains principal responsibility for legislative oversight relating to telecommunications, consumer protection, food and drug safety, public health, air quality and environmental health, the supply and delivery of energy, and interstate and foreign commerce.

As streiff noted, the powerful committee would be “an ideal vehicle for AOC to use to grandstand while pushing Medicare For All, the $15 minimum wage, and destroying the US economy in creating her ridiculous ‘Green New Deal.’”

That Black Lives Matter Activist turned Congresswoman

On Friday, Pelosi unveiled committee assignments for the incoming freshman class, as reported by Fox News, and Rep.-elect Cori Bush, (D-MO), the first Black Lives Matter activist elected to serve in Congress, was handed a seat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, which is charged with overseeing the administration of justice within the federal courts, administrative agencies, and Federal law enforcement entities.

For those of you keeping score at home, AOC is now 0-2 in her quest to matter.

The newest member of AOC’s “Squad” — which includes Rep. Ilhan Omar D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — Bush said in a statement she will use her seat to ‘affirm the dignity and humanity of Black and brown communities.”

“I ran for office on the promise of justice. Justice for Black lives. Justice for Michael Brown Jr. and Breonna Taylor. Justice for every community held back by racist systems and oppression. Today, I am proud to have been named to a committee with the power to bring about justice for all.”

Spoiler, Ms. Bush: Justice was indeed delivered to Michael Brown Jr.

Pelosi Was’t Done

In a show of support for the LGBTQ community, Pelosi tapped another incoming freshman, New York Rep.-elect Mondaire Jones, reportedly the first openly gay Black man to serve in Congress, to join Bush on the House Judiciary Committee.

Here’s Jones earlier in the month with The Most Trusted Name in News™ [sarc] host Wolf Blitzer, sounding relatively moderate — for a Democrat, that is.

But in a series of tweets on Friday, Jones sounded a whole lot more like exactly what you might expect —including his support for packing the Supreme Court.

If there is a better example of how far to the Left the House Democrat Caucus has moved and continues to move than Pelosi handing seats on two powerful House committees to a committed Black Lives Matter activist and a champion of packing the Supreme Courts, “reimagining” America’s criminal justice system, and “restoring our democracy” —Left-wing-advocacy-style — I have yet to see it.

Troublingly, I’m sure I won’t have to wait too long at all.
