Keep Calm and Chutzpah on...
In the world of Donald Rumsfeld there are knowns and unknowns. In the world of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Princess of Progressivism, there are only unknowns. However, our darling of the Democratic Socialists doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. But, she doesn’t care and neither do her supporters. They like what she promises and that’s all that counts.
So, we have the irrepressible representative from the 14th District of New York comparing her win to the Moon landing, starting a Twitter war with Donald Jr. and demanding a seat on the House Finance Committee. Well, what does the House Finance Committee do?
“The United States House Committee on Financial Services, also referred to as The House Banking Committee and formerly known as The Committee on Banking and Currency, is the committee of the United State House of Representatives that oversees the entire financial industry, including the securities, insurance, banking and housing industries. The Financial Services Committee also oversees the work of the Federal Reserve, The United States Department of The Treasury, The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and other financial services regulators.” (Wikipedia)
It is an agency just made for the dispensing of left wing social and economic justice. You may recall the sub-prime mortgages which caused chaos in the mortgage-backed securities market (MBS) and which was the primary driver of the financial crash of 2007/2008.
So, you might say, how could anyone so clueless and bent on destroying Trump and the country along with him, possibly be considered for a seat on this committee. Well, in case you haven’t heard, Maxine Waters is slated to be its next chairperson.
Now, that’s CHUTZPAH!
