WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a scathing Twitter thread, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took Fox News hosts to task for not referring to her using her proper title: “Dear Leader.”
“Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Ocasio-Cortez,’ which I can only imagine is because they refuse to acknowledge me as Dear, Supreme, Glorious Leader of the People’s Republic of North America,” she said, kicking off a 27-tweet-long rant during office hours. She further explained how the error was racist, rebuking anyone who disagreed by using clapping emojis and a few Parks and Recreation GIFs.
“No, you can’t simply refer to me as Alexandria or Ocasio-Cortez,” she continued. “My name is Dear Leader. Full stop. That’s my name.”
A review of Fox News footage over the past several months, however, indicated that hosts only ever correctly referred to her as “bananas.”

(Allison) Nixon said countless companies have essentially built their customer authentication around the phone number, and that a great many sites still let users reset their passwords with nothing more than a one-time code texted to a phone number on the account. In this attack, the fraudster doesn’t need to know the victim’s password to hijack the account: He just needs to have access to the target’s mobile phone number.
And there are many ways that the crook can gain access even control over that number even if you are still using that number. Most people have heard of SIM cards, the little thumbnail sized computer chip inside their mobile phone or tablet. But SIM chip cloning isn’t as well known even though it has been around for decades. By cloning (or copying the identification of your SIM chip) the crook can make and receive calls and texts that appear to be your phone.
It’s one of the major reasons I maintain a Land Line in this day and age. It is the only number I give out or have listed for my accounts and a landline can’t receive ‘Texts’. So if a crook steals the monthly statement out of the mailbox (email or snail mail, all the same) and attempts to hijack my account they will fail because they can’t text to the landline and they can’t steal it’s identity.
Sometimes your email accounts can be compromised by the Email Provider themselves, due to their complete lack of concern or caution over security.
A while ago I bought a new phone number. I went on Yahoo! mail and typed in the phone number in the login. It asked me if I wanted to receive an SMS to gain access. I said yes, and it sent me a verification key or access code via SMS. I typed the code I received. I was surprised that I didn’t access my own email, but the email I accessed was actually the email of the previous owner of my new number.
Yahoo! didn’t even ask me to type the email address, or the first and last name. It simply sent me the SMS, I typed the code I received, and without asking me to type an email or first and last name, it gave me access to the email of my number’s PREVIOUS OWNER. Didn’t ask for credentials or email address. This seriously needs to be revised. At minimum Yahoo! should ask me to type the email address or the first and last name before sending me an SMS which contains an access code.
I don’t want the government, especially a government with Obama appointees still sitting at a desk, to “Fix the issue”. A joint committee or task force of business, banking, Federal and scientific members should hash out a set of new regulations for the way ecommerce and ebanking should be done.
In the meantime, don’t give anyone your cell phone or mobile number for any reason. Practice saying, “Fuck off!”.
A couple years ago I was working security at a bar in northern Virginia. I overheard a table of college kids arguing about gun rights and gun control and it was getting far too emotional so I did what any sane combat veteran would do and attempted to exfiltrate. I must not have withdrawn as surreptitiously as I intended, because I was stopped in my tracks when a 5-foot-nothing brunette seemingly leapt in front of me and blurted out “excuse me, can you help us?”
I’m sure I must have looked irritated as I cycled through the possible quips and excuses I considered available to me but being uncertain that she wasn’t some Senator’s daughter, I caved: “What’s up?”
She basically leads me to this table of 2 other females (probably both named Karen) and a very soft looking male.
Becky: “So, we were just talking about current events and, you know. So, you look like you’re probably in the military, right? Like the Army?”
(When you accuse someone of being in the military you probably don’t need to give an example)
Me: “Similar.. yea”
Becky: “Right. Okay. So, do you think civilians should be allowed to own guns?”
Me: “Most of us. Yes.”
Becky: (clearly not happy with my answer) “Okay, so, why do you think you need a gun?”
(At this point it’s almost 2am and I’ve just given up on patience. Hold my beer)
(With intentionally overt condescension): “Oh, honey, I don’t. I don’t need a gun.”
Becky stares at me blankly, so I continue, but with a more serious tone:
“I could follow you home, walk up your driveway, and beat you to death with the daily newspaper.
I could choke you to death with that purse.
I could take a credit card, break it in half, and cut your throat open with it.
With enough time and effort I could beat your boyfriend here with a rolled up pair of socks.
I could probably dream up six dozen other ways I could easily end your life if you gave me an hour or so.
If I wanted to, I could wrap my hand around that beer mug and kill all four of you before you could make it to the exit. The worst part is, in your utopian little fantasyland, there ain’t a thing any of you could do about it.
I don’t need a gun.
You need a gun.
You need a gun because of men like me.”
Call me a jerk, but if you want to keep your guns, these are the conversations we all need to start having.
Dispossessed, Pat Buchanan – In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College.
Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America’s permanent minority party. In the Golden State, Democrats control the governors’ chair, every elective state office, both U.S. Senate seats, 46 of 53 U.S. House seats and three-fourths of each house of the state legislature in Sacramento.
How does the left expect to permanently dispossess Middle America? Let us count the ways.
The worst plot is happening in Democratic controlled states. These states are passing laws that direct that the states electoral votes be only cast in favor of the winner of the national popular vote. Though much of that vote in four or five states with large urban populations is clearly fraudulent. And in those states it’s only getting worse.
If the Electoral College is abolished then the country will break apart into separate, autonomous, self-governed regions. No one would agree to be governed by the Oligarchs of the East and West coasts. Those who endorse pedophilia, infanticide, open borders, total disarmament of the common people. Who hate Whites and want to force socialism (with them on top) on the entire country.
And won’t our little Black brothers be surprised what happens to them when we aren’t there to protect them from the elites who actually hate and despise them. When the Muslims and the Latinos are the dominate voting block and take away all the ‘special’ benefits and programs the Democrats used to control them after they don’t need them any more.
Pray for the Big One to destroy the west coast.
Any video that exists of the mosque shootings in Christ Church New Zealand was been banned. Seriously. The authorities show every sign of complete panic at any suggestion that the public would get an unedited, raw look at any of the video record instead of the heavily edited and commented governmental released version.
Facebook – NZ police would like to remind the public that it is an offence to share an objectional publication which includes the horrific video from yesterday’s attack. If you see this video, report it immediately. Do not download it. Do not share it. If you are found to have a copy of the video or to have shared it, you face fines & potential imprisonment
Pure Stalinist. If you don’t understand what that means, it means you’re a prole not allowed access to the facts or unapproved images. You MUST only see what the Party has decided you are ready to see.
