A leftist anti-war activist was visited by the California Highway Patrol for a tweet he made that lightly criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) pandering and bumbling comments about a “two-state solution” in the Middle East. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s office has denied contacing police about the tweet.
On April 7, activist Ryan Wentz tweeted, “On April 1, @AOC did a livestream with Michael Miller, the head of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York. She was asked about ‘peace between Israelis and Palestinians.’ Her response was incredibly underwhelming, to say the very least”…
The next day, Wentz was visited in Los Angeles by two plainclothes members of the California Highway Patrol, who reportedly accused him of “threatening” Ocasio-Cortez.
Wentz posted a picture of a business card provided by one of the officers, with the caption, “I’m really shaken up right now. I was just visited by two plainclothes police officers from California Highway Patrol at my home. They said they came here on behalf of the Capitol Police and accused me of threatening @AOC on Twitter yesterday. This is provably false.”
The activist added, “I felt scared, intimidated, and violated. They knew my name and where I live. It was done on behalf of a congresswoman who advocates against police state tactics.”
For a couple of decades, police forces across the country have been militarized. Stepping into a new decade, police forces, like NYPD, are seeking to deploy automation and artificial intelligence systems to combat crime.
NYPD first received the robot dog, called “Digidog,” a couple of months ago. At the time, NYPD Technical Assistance Response Unit Inspector (TARU) Frank Digiacomo told ABC7 that the four-legged robotic dog “will save lives, protect people, and protect officers and that’s our goal.”
Digidog is like any Boston Dynamics Spot robot – though this one is equipped with lights, two-way communication, and video cameras.
The latest video shows the 70-pound robot being tested in the Bronx. The department also deployed the robotic dog back in October to a Brooklyn shooting.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flat out lied earlier today when asked by a reporter if she would apologize for accusing Ted Cruz of inciting her murder.
The NY Post reporter asked AOC about her tweet in which she said the Senator from Texas behaved like he had tried to have her murdered during the January 6 Capitol breach.
“So, um, that’s not the quote,” responded AOC, adding, “And I will not apologize for what I said.”
The Congresswoman was then quickly ushered away by her aide, although she ended up almost falling over on the slippy ground in her rush to get away from reporters.
Ocasio-Cortez is flat out lying when she suggests she never accused Ted Cruz of trying to have her murdered.
Back on January, she literally tweeted, “I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.”
After Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Capitol Hill riot exaggerations backfired, the young lawmaker has now likened herself to war veterans who have experienced trauma on the front lines.
The controversial Democrat at first intimated that she was facing a pro-Trump mob in the halls outside her office when rioters stormed the Capitol building. However, it was revealed that Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t present at the time of the attack on Congress, and that her office is in another building entirely.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and fellow progressive lawmakers organized a special order hour on the House floor Thursday evening to “recount their experiences of the January 6 attacks.
The special order hour, which is slated to begin at 5:30 p.m. ET, comes after Ocasio-Cortez posted videos of herself on social media describing in dramatic detail what she was thinking as the Capitol building was breached by some pro-Trump supporters.
However, after many pointed out that she was not actually in the Capitol building during the breach, but in an adjacent House building that protesters did not enter, she was mocked by prominent conservative commentators on Twitter for exaggerating.
The hashtag #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett trended throughout Wednesday evening, which compared her to actor Jussie Smollett, who alleged he was a victim of a hate crime that people now widely believe was made up.
Ocasio-Cortez’s office then released a request to her supporters to report those mocking comments to Twitter, and avoid using hashtags aimed at mocking her to stop their spread.
According to a release posted by The Hill’s Scott Wong, the special order hour was organized by Ocasio-Cortez and members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus “with the goal of creating space for members to talk about their lived experience and to call for accountability.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) begged supporters to mass report the viral #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett hashtag on Facebook and Twitter this week, signalling that she is not handling the fallout from her debunked tales of fearing for her life and hiding from pro-Trump protesters who were “trying to kill” her on Jan. 6 all that well.
In an email sent from Team AOC, supporters of Ocasio-Cortez are asked for their help in forcing “Facebook and Twitter to take action and enforce their own rules.”
“We need your help,” the email reads. “Here’s what you can do… scan your social media to find posts with this misleading information, especially those using the trending hashtag. Don’t tweet any hashtags yourself, because we don’t want to spread them further!”
Supporters are then commanded to “Identify any posts that are threatening or harassing and use the built-in report features to flag them for moderators. Facebook and Twitter both have built-in tools for reporting posts and tweets that break the rules.”
