What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

Ocasio-Cortez: Make socialism great again (Updated)

Me & my memes

American Thinker   "Politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez deserves credit for spewing enough wishful thinking to fire up a crowd of equally delusional socialists.
"Facts do not get in the way of the novice Millennial demanding Medicare for all (yeah); picking up the college tab for everyone (double yeah); and, best of all, fulfilling the anarchists' dream of abolishing ICE (boo-hoo for taxpayers fearful of drug-traffickers and career criminals pouring over our porous borders).
"Her list reads like a wonderland of benefits for social justice warriors who are fiscally illiterate and clueless about the end results of socialism.  Still, they are not shy about trying to stick their fingers into someone else's heavily tax-burdened pocket.  No wonder Hillary Clinton had trouble firing up a crowd of liberals with such promises as "A Better Deal" or "Stronger Together."  Voters should feel some gratitude toward Hillary's team for dispensing with the slogan "Because It's Her Turn."
"All the passion Hillary lacked on the campaign trail can be found in the female Democratic newcomer, who was the surprise winner in New York's 14th Congressional District race.  She wasn't going to measure every word – like Hillary – and her campaign rhetoric on immigration was nothing short of hyperbolic stupidity: "We have to occupy all of it," she said, building up to the "it" of geographic terrain.  "We need to occupy every airport.  We need to occupy every border.  We need to occupy every ICE office," she said, referring to separating families illegally crossing over the border.  (She conveniently omits President Trump's order to stop the policy dating back to the Clinton administration.)" . . .

Update: Pants on Fire: Politifact confirms Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t know how unemployment rate works
"Ocasio-Cortez got just about everything wrong. Wrong facts. Wrong theory. Wrong conclusion. She has a bright future in the Democratic Party."
