As of this writing (the wee hours of Friday morning), “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” by “Mr. Reagan,” was up to almost 1.5 million views after being posted for about a week. I’d like to think I had a hand in some of that.

Here’s more about the organization called Justice Democrats, which was behind the “casting” of AOC to be the new representative for the 14th Congressional District, covering parts of New York City. For those not yet convinced that Mr. Reagan’s claim is more than a wild conspiracy theory, here’s an article in which the head of Justice Democrats boasts of their plan to do just what he was talking about –- on a large scale across the country. Of course, she doesn’t refer to AOC as a “puppet,” but in the interview it becomes clear that all the new faces they select will, in effect, function that way.

The interview appeared at ELLE.com, so no one should be surprised that the slant is NOT “Oh, no! Look what radical leftists are trying to do to game the system and take over the government!” It’s more like, “Oh, wow!! Look what our wonderful friends, the progressives at Justice Democrats, are doing to try to game the system and take over the government! You go, Justice Democrats!!” 

Consider just the title, “Meet Alexandra Rojas, the Executive Director of Justice Democrats Who Helped Elect Your Favorite Congresswoman.” And who might that be? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, yes, they are serious. The article is by Madison Feller, a staff writer covering news, politics and culture.

Once again, a women’s magazine is “mainstreaming” leftist politics, this time by informing me who my “favorite congresswoman” is. AOC is one of my least favorite congresswomen, coming in for that honor just behind Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, both of whom also happen to have been endorsed by Justice Democrats. Apparently, anti-Semitism is fine with them.

In this interview, Rojas, 24, explains that she got into politics in 2016, starting as an intern with the Bernie Sanders campaign. She met other young ‘progressives’ and started a PAC called Brand New Congress. In January of 2017, they created another PAC, Justice Democrats, and had quick success in the 2018 elections, endorsing 65 candidates who ran on “a progressive social agenda.” With AOC, she says, they “were there from the very beginning –- literally put out a call for nominations, someone suggested we reach out to her, and worked with her all the way until she ultimately won her primary.”

The “call for nominations” is what Mr. Reagan referred to in his video as the “casting call.” It really was like that. They looked at about 10,000 people to see who “fit” their idea of a young, energized, socially ‘progressive’ candidate.

“When you see folks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Rojas explains, “that’s a literal case study of the work that we do. And so, in 2020, we’re hoping to double down on competitive primary elections and compete in districts across America to help elect a new, diverse generation of leadership to Congress.” These new leaders will be pushing policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare For All, abolishing ICE, and free college. It’s also important that candidates not run on corporate PAC money.” (Justice Democrats happens to be a PAC, not a corporate one but surely just as well-funded as any of those –- can you say George Soros?) “We’re really dedicated to electing a mission-driven team that is not thinking about their political ambitions but is running on the policies to transform America.”

The article does mention that Justice Democrats’ strategy of mounting numerous primary challenges is getting “mixed reviews” within the party. Can you say Nancy Pelosi?

Rojas goes on to say that her PAC worked closely with about 12 of the candidates they endorsed. “There was a lot of work in terms of campaign launch, campaign management, field programs throughout the entire 2018 cycle.” She worked on AOC’s field program for the last two months of her campaign and helped run the texting and volunteer programs. Now, they’re working to build “infrastructure”; she flies around the country “to places like Texas,” where she’s “interviewing potential candidates on the ground” to mount a primary challenge to Rep. Henry Cuellar, who apparently isn’t far enough to the left for them.

After all, that’s the goal: a very far-left Congress. I should say that’s the interim goal, because the ultimate goal is just what Mr. Reagan said it was: to top it off with a far-left President. “The Democratic President is only going to be as progressive as however progressive their Congress is,” Rojas says, convolutedly. (“Progressive” is the word she uses consistently. Of course; we know there’s nothing actually progressive about leftist policies, which are demonstrably disastrous; my use of that term is simply in quoting her.) In other words, they want to lay the groundwork in the form of a far-left Congress, which will free up the new far-left President to do all the crazy things they are now quite openly planning to do.

Remarkably, Rojas actually veers towards an idea with which conservatives can agree: that “everyday people” should be involved in politics, not just the wealthy and politically-connected. She might not even realize that this is what the founding fathers --- and, wow, would she hate that paternalistic term --- had in mind. But her group goes way beyond what they ever envisioned in terms of organizing for vast political power. Ironically, Justice Democrats recruits “everyday people” to promote the very policies that would wipe out constitutional freedoms that we take for granted.

Think that has occurred to her or that she would even care? Of course not. She thinks of her list of far-left policies as the means of “fixing America.”

Rojas refers to “shifting the Overton window.” In case you don’t know what that is, the Overton window is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse --- the range of policies that a politician can recommend without appearing too extreme and risking his office in the current climate of public opinion. In other words, this is the kind of “climate change” leftists WANT. And, of course, if the window shifts far enough to the left, it shuts out the right, so that politicians who talk about individual freedom, religious liberty, free speech, border security, the 2nd Amendment and protection of the unborn --- even the just-born --- are the ones who are considered crazy-extreme. This is the brave new world they are after.

A postscript: a couple of mornings ago, I tuned in to WBAP Radio in Dallas and caught the last few minutes of what host Chris Salcedo was saying about the Mr. Reagan video. I enjoy listening to Chris, but what I heard on this particular day concerned me. He said he found NOTHING WRONG with what the Justice Democrats are doing; he only wished Republicans were doing the same thing! Now, I didn’t have the full context of that remark, so I’ll give him some benefit of the doubt. I think he meant simply that we’ve got to focus on winning, just as they do, and that we don’t push hard enough. True.

But if we’re “casting” for the new faces of conservatism, we need to do it much differently. While the left is looking for lots of energy and the right demographics, we need lots of energy and the right MINDS. We need many more common-sense people who can inspire voters with the way they articulate their positions. Sorry, leftists, but most Republicans are too smart to accept airheads like AOC, let alone to consider them “their favorite congresswoman.”

    I knew she wasn’t smart enough to get elected on her own. It’s downright scary as to how this ‘progressive’ movement has gained so much traction in such a short period of time. If a progressive is elected in 2020, this country will quickly slide into the dismal abyss know as socialism. Progressive socialist is an oxymoron!

These people have structured a very strict Alinsky/ Marxist approach to the total takeover of America. I am glad you and others can see this attempt to overthrow our Government for what it is. No one listens to little people like us. We need Patriots such as yourself to keep speaking out and uncovering the truth in order to weed this cancer out.

    Keep up the good work. The radio commentator was right in that those who are not far left - socialist need to get organized and get their message out before it is too late (if it isn't already). We are already on a very slippery slope and could very easily lose our country if people don't stand up, speak out, and take action to get the people in office who will save this country.

I’ve not finished reading the whole, yet am angry so many youth and olderare buying into the 3 new members and not asking hard questions of them. After intentionally spending time watching the FB live on Fox...Climate protest revolution Friday with Omar leading the pack, my anger was such, I called our N.C. representatives having to leave VM and only connecting to 1 live intern in George Holding’s office. The youth have been fully indoctrinated by garbage, listen to nothing rational. Holding’s office knew nothing of this protest of DC activists and teen speakers brought in from both Minnesota and Michigan. Consolation was basketball tournaments to watch so maybe it was missed by the liberal students and fans. Scary stuff!!

    I don't think I said they did nothing wrong. What they're doing is unbelievably wrong.
    What I was trying to say was that the casting process itself isn't a bad idea. Conservatives would naturally be more substantive, and we could find a lot of great, principled candidates this way, and I don't even mind primarying ineffective incumbents. I don't want to control congress, but I think some of the strategies used by the Justice Democrats could be appropriated by the right. We have to fight them with every tool we have, even their own tools.

  • Anne Turner

    03/16/2019 04:15 PM

    This morning I received a Facebook quote from a liberal acquaintance that said how disturbing it is that the White Supremacists, including the NZ shooter, are saying the
    that Trump is one of them. (Where do you think the got that?) Our press and cable TV of course. So I ask her to be specific about Trump had actually said to purpertrate such a conclusion by them. She said it didn’t matter what he said only that they think he is! So I guess if everyone thought Obama hated white people, the only think that mattered is that people thought that. Oh wait, this is only true if you are conservative. Is this not an amazing mind set? Never have I heard or seen such hatred for another human being that concludes that it doesn’t really matter what the person thinks, says, or does, only what others believe he thinks or said or is doing. It defies logic.

    As to the socialist agenda, the principle of every action getting a reaction is true. Why would anyone think that there are those in this country who could do socislism so much better that Venezuela, Cuba, Finland, Greece, and others running into trouble. The places where socialism has been most successful are those with a small homogeneous population. You would be a pariah if you didn’t work or if you took advantage of your neighbors. Start mixing in people with other customs and mindsets and it falls apart. Ask Germany. France, England! No, I am not a white supremacist, far from it. I just recognize that all people don’t have the same mind set. That does not mean right or wrong, just different. So we must give people as much freedom to chart their own destiny as possible.

    Governor Huckabee,
    I seldom leave you a comment, but felt that I needed to commend you on your incredible reporting. Thank you for sharing TRUTHS about what is unfolding before our eyes. Many people aren't aware how these progressives are fighting with every ounce of strength they possess! They want to transform our nation (transform=destroy!) We must continue to stay informed and fight for our freedoms! We are no strangers now to the WH hot-line and to our legislatures, as we contact them as we deem necessary. We find it interesting that the democrats don't seem to care that their plots are in wide open view for the world to see. They are harmful and without conscience!
    One Warrior they don't have on their side is GOD. We know that President Trump is a solid man of faith and that those who surround him are also. They are upholding him in Truth! With Truth and Honor as our defense, we know that God is Sovereign and is honoring our prayers! We pray that people will clearly see what the previous Administration (& his minions) did & continue to do to take President Trump down. We, as people of faith, are fighting this horrific battle together. Please continue to keep us informed as we are praying for your daughter, Sarah, and all those who are in the direct line of fire. May God be merciful and faithful until the end. Our deepest appreciation for all that you and your family do to inform us and speak truth.

    I agree to the extent we as conservatives need to get in the game and find responsible candidates that will support our values. If that means fight fire with fire then so be it. Here in Oregon our Governor and legislature are Democrat controlled. The population centers are located in Portland, Salem, and Eugene. Oregon has about 2.5 million voters, 65% are in the population centers. Getting willing qualified conservative candidates has been an uphill battle and we are still struggling.

    This article is very concerning. Is there anything anybody can do to expose them and stop them or do we just have to let them continue on this path? Have you spoken to anybody in the White House about this? Is there anybody I can contact?

As of this writing (the wee hours of Friday morning), “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” by “Mr. Reagan,” was up to almost 1.5 million views after being posted for about a week. I’d like to think I had a hand in some of that.

    This morning I received a Facebook quote from a liberal acquaintance that said how disturbing it is that the White Supremacists, including the NZ shooter, are saying the
    that Trump is one of them. (Where do you think the got that?) Our press and cable TV of course. So I ask her to be specific about Trump had actually said to purpertrate such a conclusion by them.

It defies logic.

    As to the socialist agenda, the principle of every action getting a reaction is true. Why would anyone think that there are those in this country who could do socislism so much better that Venezuela, Cuba, Finland, Greece, and others running into trouble. The places where socialism has been most successful are those with a small homogeneous population. You would be a pariah if you didn’t work or if you took advantage of your neighbors. Start mixing in people with other customs and mindsets and it falls apart. Ask Germany. France, England! No, I am not a white supremacist, far from it. I just recognize that all people don’t have the same mind set. That does not mean right or wrong, just different. So we must give people as much freedom to chart their own destiny as possible.

    I wish we had stronger republicans like our President that stand up to these crazies! But our nature is to be conservative and have manners and not scream and yell and swear and have respect for others. Which makes us look weak but we can only take so much pushback and we have to rise up and take our country back!!! Now!!!

    You're spot on Governor. However, we have a tough road ahead with 9o% of MSM and Social Media against us. I'm suspended from Twitter because apparently criticizing my Senator for his no vote is against their policy. I didnt even cuss. FB I have so many friends but I only see a hondful of theire posts. How did we lose our Country to this? I'm sad and afraid for my kids future.

    Governor Huckabee,
    I seldom leave you a comment, but felt that I needed to commend you on your incredible reporting. Thank you for sharing TRUTHS about what is unfolding before our eyes. Many people aren't aware how these progressives are fighting with every ounce of strength they possess! They want to transform our nation (transform=destroy!) We must continue to stay informed and fight for our freedoms! We are no strangers now to the WH hot-line and to our legislatures, as we contact them as we deem necessary. We find it interesting that the democrats don't seem to care that their plots are in wide open view for the world to see. They are harmful and without conscience!
    One Warrior they don't have on their side is GOD. We know that President Trump is a solid man of faith and that those who surround him are also. They are upholding him in Truth! With Truth and Honor as our defense, we know that God is Sovereign and is honoring our prayers! We pray that people will clearly see what the previous Administration (& his minions) did & continue to do to take President Trump down. We, as people of faith, are fighting this horrific battle together. Please continue to keep us informed as we are praying for your daughter, Sarah, and all those who are in the direct line of fire. May God be merciful and faithful until the end. Our deepest appreciation for all that you and your family do to inform us and speak truth.

    I agree to the extent we as conservatives need to get in the game and find responsible candidates that will support our values. If that means fight fire with fire then so be it. Here in Oregon our Governor and legislature are Democrat controlled. The population centers are located in Portland, Salem, and Eugene. Oregon has about 2.5 million voters, 65% are in the population centers. Getting willing qualified conservative candidates has been an uphill battle and we are still struggling.

  • Pam Crispell

    This article is very concerning. Is there anything anybody can do to expose them and stop them or do we just have to let them continue on this path? Have you spoken to anybody in the White House about this? Is there anybody I can contact?

As of this writing (the wee hours of Friday morning), “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” by “Mr. Reagan,” was up to almost 1.5 million views after being posted for about a week. I’d like to think I had a hand in some of that.

Here’s more about the organization called Justice Democrats, which was behind the “casting” of AOC to be the new representative for the 14th Congressional District, covering parts of New York City. For those not yet convinced that Mr. Reagan’s claim is more than a wild conspiracy theory, here’s an article in which the head of Justice Democrats boasts of their plan to do just what he was talking about –- on a large scale across the country. Of course, she doesn’t refer to AOC as a “puppet,” but in the interview it becomes clear that all the new faces they select will, in effect, function that way.

The interview appeared at ELLE.com, so no one should be surprised that the slant is NOT “Oh, no! Look what radical leftists are trying to do to game the system and take over the government!” It’s more like, “Oh, wow!! Look what our wonderful friends, the progressives at Justice Democrats, are doing to try to game the system and take over the government! You go, Justice Democrats!!” 

Consider just the title, “Meet Alexandra Rojas, the Executive Director of Justice Democrats Who Helped Elect Your Favorite Congresswoman.” And who might that be? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, yes, they are serious. The article is by Madison Feller, a staff writer covering news, politics and culture.

Once again, a women’s magazine is “mainstreaming” leftist politics, this time by informing me who my “favorite congresswoman” is. AOC is one of my least favorite congresswomen, coming in for that honor just behind Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, both of whom also happen to have been endorsed by Justice Democrats. Apparently, anti-Semitism is fine with them.

In this interview, Rojas, 24, explains that she got into politics in 2016, starting as an intern with the Bernie Sanders campaign. She met other young ‘progressives’ and started a PAC called Brand New Congress. In January of 2017, they created another PAC, Justice Democrats, and had quick success in the 2018 elections, endorsing 65 candidates who ran on “a progressive social agenda.” With AOC, she says, they “were there from the very beginning –- literally put out a call for nominations, someone suggested we reach out to her, and worked with her all the way until she ultimately won her primary.”

The “call for nominations” is what Mr. Reagan referred to in his video as the “casting call.” It really was like that. They looked at about 10,000 people to see who “fit” their idea of a young, energized, socially ‘progressive’ candidate.

“When you see folks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Rojas explains, “that’s a literal case study of the work that we do. And so, in 2020, we’re hoping to double down on competitive primary elections and compete in districts across America to help elect a new, diverse generation of leadership to Congress.” These new leaders will be pushing policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare For All, abolishing ICE, and free college. It’s also important that candidates not run on corporate PAC money.” (Justice Democrats happens to be a PAC, not a corporate one but surely just as well-funded as any of those –- can you say George Soros?) “We’re really dedicated to electing a mission-driven team that is not thinking about their political ambitions but is running on the policies to transform America.”

The article does mention that Justice Democrats’ strategy of mounting numerous primary challenges is getting “mixed reviews” within the party. Can you say Nancy Pelosi?

Rojas goes on to say that her PAC worked closely with about 12 of the candidates they endorsed. “There was a lot of work in terms of campaign launch, campaign management, field programs throughout the entire 2018 cycle.” She worked on AOC’s field program for the last two months of her campaign and helped run the texting and volunteer programs. Now, they’re working to build “infrastructure”; she flies around the country “to places like Texas,” where she’s “interviewing potential candidates on the ground” to mount a primary challenge to Rep. Henry Cuellar, who apparently isn’t far enough to the left for them.

After all, that’s the goal: a very far-left Congress. I should say that’s the interim goal, because the ultimate goal is just what Mr. Reagan said it was: to top it off with a far-left President. “The Democratic President is only going to be as progressive as however progressive their Congress is,” Rojas says, convolutedly. (“Progressive” is the word she uses consistently. Of course; we know there’s nothing actually progressive about leftist policies, which are demonstrably disastrous; my use of that term is simply in quoting her.) In other words, they want to lay the groundwork in the form of a far-left Congress, which will free up the new far-left President to do all the crazy things they are now quite openly planning to do.

Remarkably, Rojas actually veers towards an idea with which conservatives can agree: that “everyday people” should be involved in politics, not just the wealthy and politically-connected. She might not even realize that this is what the founding fathers --- and, wow, would she hate that paternalistic term --- had in mind. But her group goes way beyond what they ever envisioned in terms of organizing for vast political power. Ironically, Justice Democrats recruits “everyday people” to promote the very policies that would wipe out constitutional freedoms that we take for granted.

Think that has occurred to her or that she would even care? Of course not. She thinks of her list of far-left policies as the means of “fixing America.”

Rojas refers to “shifting the Overton window.” In case you don’t know what that is, the Overton window is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse --- the range of policies that a politician can recommend without appearing too extreme and risking his office in the current climate of public opinion. In other words, this is the kind of “climate change” leftists WANT. And, of course, if the window shifts far enough to the left, it shuts out the right, so that politicians who talk about individual freedom, religious liberty, free speech, border security, the 2nd Amendment and protection of the unborn --- even the just-born --- are the ones who are considered crazy-extreme. This is the brave new world they are after.

https://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a26537786/alexandra-rojas-justice-democrats-interview/

A postscript: a couple of mornings ago, I tuned in to WBAP Radio in Dallas and caught the last few minutes of what host Chris Salcedo was saying about the Mr. Reagan video. I enjoy listening to Chris, but what I heard on this particular day concerned me. He said he found NOTHING WRONG with what the Justice Democrats are doing; he only wished Republicans were doing the same thing! Now, I didn’t have the full context of that remark, so I’ll give him some benefit of the doubt. I think he meant simply that we’ve got to focus on winning, just as they do, and that we don’t push hard enough. True.

But if we’re “casting” for the new faces of conservatism, we need to do it much differently. While the left is looking for lots of energy and the right demographics, we need lots of energy and the right MINDS. We need many more common-sense people who can inspire voters with the way they articulate their positions. Sorry, leftists, but most Republicans are too smart to accept airheads like AOC, let alone to consider them “their favorite congresswoman.”

    I knew she wasn’t smart enough to get elected on her own. It’s downright scary as to how this ‘progressive’ movement has gained so much traction in such a short period of time. If a progressive is elected in 2020, this country will quickly slide into the dismal abyss know as socialism. Progressive socialist is an oxymoron!

    I have been reading this very disturbing background on these people. I was surprised when ocrazio was elected but now understand. These people have structured a very strict Alinsky/ Marxist approach to the total takeover of America. I am glad you and others can see this attempt to overthrow our Government for what it is. No one listens to little people like us. We need Patriots such as yourself to keep speaking out and uncovering the truth in order to weed this cancer out.

    Keep up the good work. The radio commentator was right in that those who are not far left - socialist need to get organized and get their message out before it is too late (if it isn't already). We are already on a very slippery slope and could very easily lose our country if people don't stand up, speak out, and take action to get the people in office who will save this country.

    Sure hope you have shared this with your daughter and powers that be! Even Rush!! I’ve not finished reading the whole, yet am angry so many youth and olderare buying into the 3 new members and not asking hard questions of them. After intentionally spending time watching the FB live on Fox...Climate protest revolution Friday with Omar leading the pack, my anger was such, I called our N.C. representatives having to leave VM and only connecting to 1 live intern in George Holding’s office. The youth have been fully indoctrinated by garbage, listen to nothing rational. Holding’s office knew nothing of this protest of DC activists and teen speakers brought in from both Minnesota and Michigan. Consolation was basketball tournaments to watch so maybe it was missed by the liberal students and fans. Scary stuff!!

    I don't think I said they did nothing wrong. What they're doing is unbelievably wrong.
    What I was trying to say was that the casting process itself isn't a bad idea. Conservatives would naturally be more substantive, and we could find a lot of great, principled candidates this way, and I don't even mind primarying ineffective incumbents. I don't want to control congress, but I think some of the strategies used by the Justice Democrats could be appropriated by the right. We have to fight them with every tool we have, even their own tools.

    This morning I received a Facebook quote from a liberal acquaintance that said how disturbing it is that the White Supremacists, including the NZ shooter, are saying the
    that Trump is one of them. (Where do you think the got that?) Our press and cable TV of course. So I ask her to be specific about Trump had actually said to purpertrate such a conclusion by them. She said it didn’t matter what he said only that they think he is! So I guess if everyone thought Obama hated white people, the only think that mattered is that people thought that. Oh wait, this is only true if you are conservative. Is this not an amazing mind set? Never have I heard or seen such hatred for another human being that concludes that it doesn’t really matter what the person thinks, says, or does, only what others believe he thinks or said or is doing. It defies logic.

    As to the socialist agenda, the principle of every action getting a reaction is true. Why would anyone think that there are those in this country who could do socislism so much better that Venezuela, Cuba, Finland, Greece, and others running into trouble. The places where socialism has been most successful are those with a small homogeneous population. You would be a pariah if you didn’t work or if you took advantage of your neighbors.
