The bottom line is that like Obama, it’s rarely the person that climbs to the top. It’s the “man behind the curtain” that pulls the levers and pushes the buttons, that gets that person to the top.
Last week I put out an article in which I suggested that the Democrats are going to push for many different types of candidates to run against Donald Trump in 2020. As they let these different people with wildly different ideologies get a platform to approach the American people, the first thing that comes to mind is that the party would be “fractured”, by so much division. And that’s what I think they want, total division.
Then, as it looks like they can’t seem to get behind any one candidate and they face the idea of losing against Trump again, I believe their going to usher Michelle Obama out of the wings, and she’s going to announce late in the game that she’s decided “I have to run, the country needs me, and Barack’s platform!” If that happens, the fractured Democrats will come together with a singular focus and make her the nominee. No question.
I didn’t just wake up one day out of the clear blue, and think, ghee, maybe Michelle Obama’s going to run for President. No, my theory was born from scratching my head over none other than AOC. Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
When she ran for Congress, no one had heard of her. That reminded me of none other than one Barack Obama. He was a Junior Senator from Chicago that not one in 100 could identify. Yet, somehow, this no name, this mystery man with the foreign name, came out of nowhere, to win the Presidency of the US. Well, obviously he didn’t do it alone. He was groomed, hand selected, and pushed. He was given all the tools the Dem’s had, and he used them wisely. I suspected I was seeing a repeat when AOC appeared.
Who was/is this girl I wondered? Just about every time she spoke, she was coming up with either some bizarre idea, or she was talking in crazed circles, almost like she had no idea how ANYTHING works. Often it wasn’t “in your face” stupid stuff, but given a moment to think about it and, yeah it was. Sort of like when Amazon said “to heck with NY” she said “Good, now we can spend that 3 billion that we aren’t giving to Amazon, on things like education and infrastructure”. WHAT??? She genuinely thought NY had 3 billion real dollars laying around to “give” AMZN??? Yeah, she did, and no, they didn’t.
Anyway, after seeing this gal pop up out of nowhere, and the UNSEAT a guy that’s been a fixture in that position for years, I started trying to find out where she came from. Not just the silly “I’m a bartender in a taco joint,” but who picked her to run, and who made it possible?
What I found was pretty confusing at first. After college, Ocasio-Cortez moved back to the Bronx and found work as an educational director. Following the death of her father, she took on an additional job working as a bartender and waitress to help her mother—a house cleaner and school-bus driver—fight foreclosure of their home. Ocasio-Cortez later launched Brook Avenue Press, a publishing firm for books that portray the Bronx in a positive light. She worked as lead educational strategist at GAGEis, Inc. Ocasio-Cortez also worked for the nonprofit National Hispanic Institute, serving as the Educational Director of the 2017 Northeast Collegiate World Series, a five-day long program targeted at college-bound high school students from across the United States and other countries, where she also participated in the panel on the future of Latino leadership.
Hmm, none of that sounded to me like “hey lets run for Congress”. But by 2016, she had found work as an activist for Bernie Sanders. Okay that made some sense. But once again, it’s a long leap from helping get the vote out for Bernie in 2016, to “Let’s run for Congress” in 2018 with almost NO money, and NO endorsements, against a 10 time seat holder. Nope, didn’t add up. Someone was behind all that.
Well, the deeper I looked, the weirder things got. She was backed by some outfit called the “Justice Democrats”. Who the hell was that I wondered? Well the more I looked, the more I was amazed. Let’s see what Wikipedia says:
Justice Democrats is an American progressive political action committee founded on January 23, 2017, by Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, and former leadership from the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Alexandra Rojas became executive director of the organization in May 2018. The organization formed as a result of the 2016 United States presidential election and has a stated goal of reforming the Democratic Party by running "a unified campaign to replace every corporate-backed member of Congress" and rebuild the Democratic Party from "scratch" starting in the 2018 congressional midterm elections.
Justice Democrats describes its views as being held by most Americans, but deemed "politically impossible" by the current political establishment because of systemic political corruption. Members of the Justice Democrats comment that as all campaigns need donations and that candidates who hold policies viewed as unfavorable by corporate interests and wealthy individuals will be denied funding by corporations. Therefore the system actually ends up forcing politicians to change their policies to suit the current business environment.
In the 2018 elections, 26 of the 79 candidates endorsed by Justice Democrats won their respective primary elections. Seven of these candidates won in the general election: Raúl Grijalva, Ro Khanna, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Pramila Jayapal.
And there it was. A grass roots movement, but a group of far left organizers, were the people behind AOC. But wait folks, it gets worse. This outfit actually put out a “casting call” for people who would like to run for offices. 10,000 people responded. AOC didn’t even respond, her BROTHER sent in a response and they contacted her. After deciding that she had the Charisma, and she could be coached to say anything they want, they offered her the chance of a lifetime. “Say what we tell you to say, and we’ll run your entire campaign. We’ll do the flyers, we’ll do the door knocking, we’ll post your agenda everywhere.” She went with it.
This is how you get an AOC, with a ridiculous “Green deal” on Capital Hill. So if you’re wondering how a “no one,” bartending in a taco joint, ends up unseating a 10 time incumbent, with a purse of just $193,000 versus the incumbents 4 million, now you know.
There’s a You-tube video I’d like you to watch. It’s only 14 minutes long, and the guy who put it together, did a very good job of showing you who’s behind the Justice Democrats, how they found AOC, and what they want to do to the entire Democratic party. They make no bones about it, they want to “take it over” and install far left progressives.

The bottom line is that like Obama, it’s rarely the person that climbs to the top. It’s the “man behind the curtain” that pulls the levers and pushes the buttons, that gets that person to the top. Go watch this Video and prepare to be amazed. Why? Because more is coming. Count on it.
