Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t known for holding her tongue. Love her or hate her she says what she means and means what she says.
And recently she made news again saying cutting $1 billion from the NYPD wasn’t enough because “Defunding police means defunding police.”
But now, The Washington Post just tried to absurdly claim the opposite in this “fact check.”
Today’s Fake News Media outlets are more openly biased and liberal than ever before.
In fact, they’ve gone from bias to outright support of the Left and their Democrat owned politicians without missing a beat.
And now they’ve taken it one step further. The media isn’t content just supporting their left-wing masters, they are trying to help them with their messaging as well.
Take the whole fight over defunding the police.
As the riots started after the death of George Floyd at the hands of rogue cops in Minneapolis, calls started for defunding and even abolishing the police.
In fact, Minneapolis has begun to do just that.
Unfortunately for the BLM thugs, socialist agitators, and their Antifa storm troopers, the calls to abolish police departments came at the very same time these criminals were destroying entire city blocks and maiming, raping, and killing almost at will.
So of course, the American people strongly signaled their disapproval of defunding the police.
Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” either didn’t get the message or just didn’t care.
Because AOC recently weighed in on the proposed New York City budget cuts to the police department she said don’t go far enough, saying “defunding police means defunding police.”
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the Congresswoman said in a statement.
Seems pretty clear, right?
Well, not according to the Amazon-owned Washington Post.
In fact, The Washington Post ”fact-checker” just recently attempted to defend Vice President Joe Biden from very valid charges that he wants to “defund the police.”
The theory used by the newspaper’s “fact-checker” is that cutting police spending and therefore spending less money on the police does not actually mean “defunding” them.
Funny, this same newspaper screams that Trump is trying to defund Planned Parenthood when he is only proposing a cut in the increase of their government money.
Here is what Glenn Kessler, The Post’s fact checker wrote:
“We should pause a moment and explain what ‘defund the police’ means. It generally does not mean eliminating the police. Instead, advocates want to redirect some funds now spent on police forces to items such as education, public health, housing and youth services. The idea is that low-income communities would become stronger — and less in need of police — if root problems were addressed.
Under this concept, some police officers would be replaced with trained social workers or specialized response teams in an effort to let police focus on violent crime, not drug overdoses or homelessness. The theory is that police would be better positioned to deal with rapes and murders if they were not required to deal with other social ills that sometimes lead to community confrontations with police.”
While Kessler admits Biden agrees with proposals that would “redirect” police funding, he tries to explain why that is not the same as defunding police.
What? Isn’t this the same newspaper who ran doom-and-gloom, end of the world, people are going to die in the streets headlines because of proposed “cuts” to Obamacare?
Not defunding Obamacare mind you. Just cutting it.
But no when it’s a liberal program being cut it’s always announced by the media as defunding.
When it’s something like the police, it’s merely budget cuts.

This NBC News host just made one outrageous claim that caught Trump off guard
With the coronavirus relief benefits set to expire, politicians in Washington, D.C. are squabbling over what will be included in the next round of so-called “stimulus aid.”
The Fake News Media is having a field day amid the hysteria and has wasted no opportunity to attack President Trump and his allies.
And now this NBC News host just made one outrageous claim that caught Trump off guard.
NBC News is in lockstep with the Fake News Media in their attacks against Trump and Republicans.
Democrats have opened the floodgates on Big Government spending under the guise of “coronavirus stimulus relief” and have been packing the legislation with their wish list of socialist agenda items and personal favors.
Worse still, their allies in the Fake News Media have been defunding them spending the American taxpayers’ money by trying to incriminate President Trump, his allies, and Republicans.
NBC’s Chuck Todd began a recent broadcast by turning things over to NBC’s White House correspondent, Kelly O’Donnell, who wasted no time in glorifying the Democrats for leading the charge to help struggling Americans.
O’Donnell’s bit included soundbites from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, both of which cast Democrats in a good light out of context while providing only one quote from the Trump administration, that again, out of context came across with a negative connotation.
The claim that Democrats were leading the charge to help struggling Americans was the most egregious. Democrats have been using the chaos to ram through the entire radical agenda and spend trillions in American taxpayer dollars.
When asked if “Congress feels the urgency so many American families” do, Todd really twisted the knife in NBC’s smear campaign.
“Look, in fairness, I don’t know if I would lump them all together,” Todd said of members of Congress. “I mean, the Democrats passed a bill a couple months ago. So, I think they would argue that, hey, they met the urgency of the moment and they would argue it’s the Republicans that haven’t met this moment here,” Todd concluded.
Todd went on to claim Trump “undermined” the outcome of the 2020 election by bringing attention to potential voter fraud and calling into question voter integrity with the advent of mail-in voting – calling it “deeply dangerous for the democracy.”
This is the same Chuck Todd whose palms are greased routinely by the Left. For example, in 2016, news broke and was quickly covered up that Todd’s wife was getting millions of dollars from the Bernie Sanders campaign, and prior to that she was an advisor on the Jim Webb presidential campaign. In early 2020, Todd was linked to Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), once having acted as her landlord.
Chuck Todd is a leftist operative in the mainstream media and his wife has the resume of an Obama-era Deep State operative.
Yet Todd will readily claim objectivity while he forces his propaganda on Americans across the country.

The Washington Post stooped to a new low with this attack on Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz
The Washington Post is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
So it’s no surprise they’ll rush to the billionaire’s defense when tech titans are called out for censoring conservatives.
And after Jim Jordan ripped Google and Amazon on Capitol Hill, WaPo stooped to its lowest level yet.
The Washington Post is facing difficult times.
That’s the only possible explanation for the fact that the left-wing rag assigned a fashion critic (yes, really) to cover a Congressional hearing on big tech censorship.
Robin Givhan, The Post’s fashion critic went after Republican firebrands Matt Gaetz (R-FL-1) and Jim Jordan (R-OH-4), saying they must be drinking hand sanitizer.
Givhan droned on, “one couldn’t help but wonder whether some of our representatives are drinking the hand sanitizer instead of using it for good hygiene.”
Then she complained about Rep. Jordan not wearing a jacket.
Before Givhan smeared the conservative Congressmen, she made sure to critique the video conference backgrounds of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and of course Amazon and The Washington Post’s own Jeff Bezos.
Givhan praised Google’s Pichai for his “perfect posture” and having “an office that looked like it had been inspired by the West Elm catalogue.”
Then she marveled at her boss Bezos’ “wall of honey-colored shelves with a distinctly mid-century modern feel.”
The Washington Post would rather suck up to Silicon Valley than actually do investigative journalism on their blatant censorship of conservatives.
So they’re now assigning fashion critics to heap praise on anti-conservative tech companies.

This Washington Post claim about America has readers divided in a heated debate ahead of November
America is going through a very turbulent time.
Amid the COVID-19 panic and racial tensions boiling over into violent riots with political agendas, the Fake News Media has been blasting toxic identity politics to further divide the country.
And this Washington Post claim about America has readers divided in a heated debate ahead of November.
Following the death of George Floyd in May, the Left and their allies have rallied around calls to “defund the police.”
Under the guise of radical Left rhetoric that law enforcement in the United States is “historically and structurally racist,” riots fueled by Marxist Black Lives Matter and Antifa groups have broken out across the nation.
Although defended by the Fake News Media as “peaceful protests,” Americans see these riots as what they really are – violent and destructive.
So-called “protesters” have created an environment in cities across the nation that has allowed for looting, rape, and the murder of innocent Americans.
Regardless, The Washington Post recently published a column by Amrita Chakrabarti, who is an associate professor of history and gender studies at Indiana University titled, “Violence in Portland Exposes the Real Purpose Embedded in Law Enforcement.”
In a time where Americans need to come together more than ever, Myers claims that “American policing was designed to uphold white supremacy – not keep people safe.”
Myers goes on to blame President Trump for “escalated” conditions in Portland and that tensions are high because “a highly militarized force with no known training in crowd control” was deployed to “supposedly protect the federal courthouse in that city.”
“The death of black people at the hands of the police . . . isn’t few. For well over a century, black people have been terrorized by those who wear blue. [American policing] was designed to uphold white supremacy by surveilling, capturing, assaulting and killing black people,” Myers concluded.
These baseless claims are the type of misinformation The Washington Post and other Fake News Media outlets are poisoning Americans with.
The Left’s scheme to destroy America with revisionist history and rebuild a socialist play space for Big Government goons is in full swing.
