On Monday, Gov. Huckabee offered a link to a YouTube video hosted by a conservative who calls himself “Mr. Reagan” and titled “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.” The Governor neither endorsed it nor condemned it, just cited it as something interesting. I had long assumed there had to be some sort of brains behind AOC, as she didn’t seem to have any inside her head. After watching his video a few times, I have to say that his theory is entirely plausible and worth exploring.

Just how does a 29-year-old bartender become the Democratic nominee for Congress from such a densely populated district as hers (the 14th) in New York? We know it had to be because of an organized and very aggressive strategy by “progressive” (as in, radical socialist) Democrats. “Mr. Reagan” asserts that AOC was recruited to run by a group called the Justice Democrats, which he says has a plan to find the “faces” of the new Progressive movement and run them for office around the country, with the ultimate goal of taking over Congress. He believes that AOC is, essentially, an actress, reciting their talking points.

At this writing, the video has racked up over 800,000 views in just 3 days, and I hope it gets millions more. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must-see. Watch it if you haven’t –- it’s a little over 23 minutes long –- and then we’ll continue.

In my view, there is nothing crazy about what “Mr. Reagan” is saying. In fact, his theory makes perfect sense to me and would explain a lot. The only way he undercuts his argument is by using the word “actress” to describe AOC and the others run by Justice Democrats.

As far as I know, AOC has never worked as an actress per se. She did not study acting, has not appeared in scripted plays or films, does not have a theatrical agent, is not a member of Actors Equity, and does not go on the usual casting calls. Living in New York City, if she really were an actress, she would have been doing these things. (Come to think of it, though, she might also have been bartending.) So if this theory is correct, I would rather call her a “proxy,” a “front,” a “figurehead,” maybe even a new kind of Manchurian candidate –- the kind that doesn’t require brainwashing (which I imagine in her case could be done with a Q-tip) because what brain she’s got has already been washed. She has a bachelor’s degree from Boston University; I believe her major was something like international relations and her minor, we’re told, was in economics. (I would love to see her transcripts. If she made A’s in economics, that school is not the place to study economics.)

So, it’s not as if the Justice Democrats enlisted a talent agent, looked at head shots, set up a casting call, and literally signed contracts with real actors and actresses to play progressive politicians. Rather, it appears that they aggressively sought out young leftists who would appeal to very young and millennial voters. This was a “special” kind of casting call, arranged by political operatives rather than movie directors. With AOC, who apparently was brought to the call by her brother, they hit the jackpot, and she quickly became a star. As you saw in the video, the leader of JD, Alexandra Rojas, freely admits that in 2016, they looked at 10,000 potential candidates and found her. They organized her entire campaign for her.

Trying to get inside their heads, I assume they were –- and are –- looking for energetic young people, preferably of color. Older folks and white people (especially male) need not apply, unless there’s something so irresistibly cool about them (androgyny?) that it makes up for those severe shortcomings. They want good-looking people with fresh faces, eyes spaced wide apart, even features and big, gleaming teeth. They want a variety of ethnicities. They will style these young socialists in hip, expensive designer clothes. In others words, they want people who look like they could appear in a Benetton ad.

Now, here’s a picture of one of the other people “Mr. Reagan” says was “cast” to run in her primary. This is freshman Rep. Ayanna Pressley (great name!) of Massachusetts, who just turned 45; it’s a good thing for her political career that she looks great for her age. She recently made news by endorsing the brilliant idea of lowering the voting age in federal elections from 18 to 16.

So this appears to be the new strategy for old-time radical leftism: put a fresh face on it!


Commentary continues below advertisement


AOC does a fairly good job of parroting their talking points, although when she attempts to go off-script and put things into her own words, she tends to get them wrong or turned around.  She did a great job reading scripted questions at the Michael Cohen hearing, though.  She looks good and speaks with conviction, and those are the two most important things.

Her campaign manager and now chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, has been in the news lately over serious accusations of mishandling over $1 million in campaign donations. After cutting his teeth on the Bernie Sanders campaign, he appears to be behind AOC’s messaging. Others from the Bernie campaign –- social media experts and radical Saul Alinsky-style organizers –- came on board as well. As “Mr. Reagan” shows through video clips, the Justice Democrats have been very open about finding new, more electable people –- people who fit their “brand” –- to challenge Democratic incumbents, win in their Dem-majority districts and, in the long run, TAKE OVER Congress. What’s after that? “Mr. Reagan” thinks it’s the Presidency.

This kind of thing wouldn’t work unless there were a lot of people who didn’t know beans about history or economics or ANYTHING but who won’t let that stop them from voting. It’s important to them to elect the first twentysomething female Puerto Rican, or the first hijab-wearing female Somali, or the first (fill in the blank). If these candidates look hip, hate Trump, think abortion and even infanticide is great, want to legalize pot, and promise to provide everything for free, they’re in.

I do think this started in earnest with the election of Barack Obama in 2008. Here was someone with huge star power, a dazzling smile and a fine speaking voice who represented an opportunity to elect the first black President. He himself was a community organizer, and the path was quickly cleared for him. But even that wasn’t a first; for example, John Kennedy had the advantage because he was much more appealing than Nixon. There was even a movie called “The Candidate,” in which the people elected a neophyte who looked exactly like Robert Redford.

Incidentally, this is one more reason why I still think Michelle Obama will announce she’s running and will win the nomination. There’s nobody running with her degree of star power, and that’s what they need for the general election. She fits the “brand” and the media love her. Personally, I don’t care if a candidate looks like Mr. or Ms. Potato Head if that person is going to be a good leader, keep our nation strong and defend the Constitution, but that’s just me.

The best way to counteract this strategy, if it's what they’re doing, is to expose it, so pass “Mr. Reagan” around! I really am worried that, thanks to our education system, there are just too many uninformed voters who think “socialism” has something to do with social media and getting stuff for free. To get an idea of their level of discourse, you might check out the following video, a running commentary on “Mr. Reagan’s” presentation. I warn you –- in fact, I REALLY hesitated to link to it at all –- because the language is just relentlessly filthy. (I turned it off at the 9:00 mark.) But this person, with his lame attempt to refute the theory, is “Exhibit A,” making the case that some people are so wretchedly stupid, a scheme to woo the electorate with pretty faces might actually work. If you do have a functioning brain, that realization will scare the wits out of you.

    When Obama was just nominated I tried to find out more about him because I wanted to be able to justify why you should not vote for me and - lo and behold - all information about him was sealed. All his high school, several colleges, etc records were sealed. I found he had done nothing during his short term as a senator except his usual pontificating, and I tried to figure out why anyone with half a brain would consider voting for this obvious unknown and secretive man so I assumed he must be a front to capture those who vote for party, race, gender, etc. and it worked. After 8 years he proved his total inability to function as a president - for the people - and destroyed anything he touched. Lazy, stupid people, as well as those with a certain ideology do not vote for ability but especially with the Dems, they vote for who they can control - we have seen it for years and continue to see it. Dems will continue to push for more illegals to vote, for lowering the voting age - they abort future voters so they have to import them as they can't wait for babies to grow up. We have passed a point of no return and it is downhill from here - Trump can't hold it off forever. May God forgive us for our stupidity!!!!!!!

    I am becoming increasingly aware of the "Justice Democrats". This evil must be exposed immediately. I implore you, Governor Huckabee, FOX News, Blaze, Rush, Sean, Tucker, absolutely every single news person dedicated to reporting the truth to research, uncover, unmask this evil that will destroy the United States. Socialism is hostile to Capitalism. Socialism leads to tyranny. The "Justice Democrats" want power and AOC must be exposed as their puppet.

    It is easy to believe AOC is choregraphed because Obama was. He was picked out by Geo Sores or Farrikon , somebody with money, groomed and placed to go just where he did. Think of it. He came virtually out of no where only to be a freshman congressman for barely a year, took center stage, dems made deal with HRC she could have it next and off they went so that the American people, who desperately needed not to be raciest, felt very self righteous to elect the first black man as president and for 8 years he took America down as far as he could at home and abroad. HRC was scheduled to finish what he started and when she didn't win, they went ballistic, filled themselves with hate and have put the country through ????
    Pray for our country.

    socialism or communism never will work, look Cuba after 60 and+ years, and Venezuela, a very rich country with 3 million barrels of crude daily in the market and not even toilet paper available, I hope that there will be enough INTELIGENT people to defend the destruction of this GREAT NATION called USA.

    The 'brains' behind AOC, is Andrew Cuomo and all his extreme leftist socialists! I bet that's who. Also, how do you think Obummer got in? He was just an actor perfectly reciting his lines given to him by the black panthers and al sharplesston.... A good actor fools a lot of people.... but not the wise and experienced people. All those who are wise to the leftist, socialist's propaganda of fooling people, are NEVER fooled, we are just expecting it to happen, and it does all the time from leftist socialist always miserable people. Those people who are always pessimistic and can only win because of cheating or 'stacking the deck' in their favor. And when those same misers get their way, they still complain that they only stole a million, when 2 million were at stake.... never satisfied with what they have....meaning their only gain is by cheating at something & getting away with unlawful and unethical immoral acts....so of course they will never be happy.... a Liberal is NEVER a happy person, always miserable and likes deception to stealth around in, instead of truth causing them be seen as what they really are. Hitler was exactly like that, and that is why leftists and socialists admired him.....and want to be just like him. Hitler's bag of tricks was to fool everyone, and it worked until it didn't any more....Truth won out, as truth always does and always will.

    I am SO TIRED of hearing people who THINK THEY KNOW what they are talking about throw the "legalize pot" NONSENSE into this discussion I could SCREAM! HOW can SO MANY WELL MEANING, INTELLIGENT people be SO BRAINWASHED about the cannabis family of plants, and their ENORMOUS BENEFITS to HUMAN HEALTH. There is NO PLANT in the world that is more closely aligned with the workings of the human body than the hemp and marijuana plants. THAT'S WHY IT'S AGAINST THE LAW. IT'S GOOD FOR US. The human body has BUILT IN RECEPTORS for the chemicals in cannabis. The chemical compounds in the cannabis plants are called cannabinoids. The human body has what is called the endocannabinoid system, that controls many IMPORTANT functions of the body. Are you aware of the oils made from the hemp plant, that when given to children with SEVERE epilepsy that causes them to have up to 300 SEIZURES A DAY, COMPLETELY STOP THE SEIZURES, or bring them down to one or two a day, with NO SIDE EFFECTS. It also REPLACES the 10-15 pharmaceutical POISONS that turn the affected children into ZOMBIES. ONE DROP on their tongues. Can you say MIRACLE CURE. If it was YOUR CHILD you sure WOULD. Do you really think the ASSHOLES who have SATURATED AND MURDERED Americans with their opioids want the TRUTH about cannabis to come out? And EVERY TIME someone makes a DEROGATORY REMARK about "legalizing pot", you are CARRYING WATER for these CREEPS. And what about ALCOHOL. 30 MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR around the world die from alcohols' DEMONIC effects, and yet no one utters a WORD about that. Here's a fact EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW. NO ONE HAS EVER DIED AS A RESULT OF ANYTHING CONNECTED TO MARIJUANA, except maybe being beaten to death in JAIL for HAVING IT. No wonder America is SUCH A MESS. We are BRAINWASHED like NO OTHER PEOPLE EVER, and are WAY TOO PROUD AND ARROGANT to say "I didn't KNOW THAT". And just for the record, I recently spent an hour and forty five minutes on the phone with a HIGH RANKING Tennessee politician discussing THIS TOPIC, and this person was the MOST HONEST, WELL INFORMED PERSON on this subject I have ever talked to. GOD BLESS THEM. The chemical compounds in marijuana have been known to SHRINK CANCER TUMORS since the 1850's. Do you think the people ADVERTISING on TV for us to SHIT IN A BAG and mail it to them want US TO KNOW THIS? Or that it can CURE DEADLY DISEASES like CROHN'S, and an ENDLESS LIST of human maladies? OF COURSE THEY DON'T. And to have it's INCREDIBLE AND MIRACULOUS PROPERTIES CONNECTED to the AOC's and the MORONIC "BRAINS BEHIND HER" is a DISSERVICE to HUMANITY AND REALITY. Watching the news in America makes me ASHAMED of THIS COUNTRY, and the IDIOTS that GO ALONG TO GET ALONG with this WARMONGERING, LYING, MURDEROUS bunch of PSYCHOPATHS that RULE OVER US. For the MOST PART, we are nothing but a bunch of stepinfetchits for the NEW WORLD ORDER, and the CRIMINAL OIL AND BANKER class. Just wave an American flag, and we're ready to go slaughter a few MILLION MORE PEOPLE to make sure we keep the world safe for (FROM) democracy. EVERY TIME ANYONE says something NEGATIVE about MARIJUANA AND ANYONE WHO USES IT, you are PROVING that you DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, and make people like ME wonder HOW MANY OTHER TOPICS you are spewing propaganda about, indeliberately or not, it DOESN'T MATTER. We Americans are looked at by the rest of the world as a bunch of MONEY LOVING, MENDACIOUS WARMONGERS, and if we don't wake up SOON, there WILL BE A WORLD WAR 3, and it will be OUR FAULT. We need to REALLY EDUCATE OURSELVES. Put down the beer, whiskey and wine, and READ, READ, READ. The situation is PRECARIOUS. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! TW

    I was on another conservative site about a week ago when it was brought up about her being selected by these Justice Democrats. The person said you can go to their website and see for yourself, which I did. They are asking for others to be nominated on their site, and show the ones that they got into Congress this term as freshmen Democrats in the house. The link is just, www.justicedemocrats.com Look it up! It's crazy how they formed and got under the radar without people knowing about it until now.
