The walls are closing in on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The media tried to make the freshman congresswoman a star, but her popularity has hit new lows.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues want nothing to do with her.
And Cortez represents one of the safest blue districts in the country, but her re-election is in doubt.
Now, she’s lashing out by promising to use the government to punish her personal enemies.
She’s been getting pushback for a plank in her unpopular “Green New Deal” that promises to hike tax rates on “the rich” up to an astronomical 70%.
But she doesn’t mean rich people like Bernie Sanders, her fellow “Democratic Socialist” who just confessed he’s a millionaire.

AOC says she’s going to handpick a tiny group of people she hates—“like 10 people”—and walk away with everything they own!
She went on a rant of all the people she wants to bankrupt.
“When we say ‘tax the rich,’ we mean nesting-doll yacht rich,” she tweeted.
“For-profit prison rich. Betsy DeVos, student-loan-shark rich. Trick-the-country-into-war rich,” she rambled.
AOC said she had a right to clean out her enemies’ bank accounts, because “THAT kind of rich is simply not good for society, & it’s like 10 people.”

Forget the fact that it’s totally un-American to pass a bill aimed at a few, specific individuals–that’s called a “bill of attainder,” and it’s unconstitutional. The Constitution means nothing to the Democrats, anyway.
But publicly broadcasting that you’re going to use your power to get your political foes, no matter what? That kind of chutzpah is breathtaking.
One writer compared her tweet to the Soviet Union’s liquidation of people it declared enemies of the state.
Another challenged Cortez to “name those 10 people…Seriously, we are all waiting. This should be a very simple request.”
This isn’t even the first time AOC admitted she wanted to abuse her power to settle personal scores.
Last December, Donald Trump Jr. trolled AOC with a devastating Instagram post showing President Trump telling Cortez he’s against socialism, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”
Even though she hadn’t been sworn into Congress yet, Cortez threatened to throw him in the slammer!
She threatened “Junior” by saying it’s a bad “idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”
She ended by telling him to “have fun!”—dealing with all the charges she’d hit him with once she took office.
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! https://t.co/oQ6MsdJYCk

Make the bubble-headed congresswoman look stupid on social media? See you in court!
If AOC thinks she can jail the commander-in-chief’s first-born son, who couldn’t she destroy?

She’s already put the crosshairs on some of the most powerful people in the country. She’s trying to use her seat on the House committee that oversees banking laws to punish banks that do business with pro-Second Amendment groups. She’s singled out, harassed, and shamed financial execs on national television.
These businessmen didn’t break a single law, but Democrats hate gun owners, so off with their heads!
AOC has gotten more aggressive—some people would say unhinged—as her popularity has tanked, and there are signs she could even be a one-term congressman.
A Gallup poll found her negatives had doubled in six months.
Her fellow Democrats are distancing themselves from her as fast as possible. Five congresswomen from pro-Trump districts in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey went on a national tour dissing Cortez’s far-Left policies.

Things are so bad that Cortez may not even win her ultra-Democrat seat in the Bronx. Her approval rating has skydived by 26 points since she was elected, mostly over her chasing thousands of good-paying jobs out of her district.
AOC has decided that voters might kick her out of office in 2020, so she wants to do as much damage as possible first.
Until now, Republicans just worried about the ex-bartender’s slow wit.
“She’s a dunderhead!” said Fox News host Mark Levi. “She doesn’t know a damn thing. She hasn’t done a damn thing.”
But now they say her plan to use the government to target her enemies has crossed a dangerous line.
“This is why socialism turns into authoritarianism,” said Ari Fleischer, who was press secretary for President George W. Bush. “This is very Venezuela of her.”
First, socialists take you money. Then they take your freedom. And in the end, they take your life.
At least AOC has admitted what’s really driving her lust for power!
