American Thinker: “Oh! What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive,” warned Sir Walter Scott. That’s a good warning that falls on deaf ears among the leading ladies of the Democrats who have a penchant for telling tall tales about their pasts. Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren are now joined by new saviors from the left, Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The “new rising star” of the Donkeys, according to Newsweek, Ocasio-Cortez unseated ten-term Democrat incumbent Joe Crowley in the recent New York City primary. Crowley is part of the Democrat establishment, a creature of the bipartisan D.C. swamp inhabited by career politicians from both sides of the political aisle. Ocasio-Cortez also has her eyes on the biggest prize of all, the White House, according to her own mother.
The self-proclaimed working-class “girl from the Bronx” actually grew up in Westchester County, New York, one of the ten wealthiest counties in the U.S. It’s also the county Bill and Hillary Clinton now call home. She lived there from age 5 through her high school graduation and was even registered to vote there until 2016.
Her campaign website bio makes no mention of her upper-middle-class suburban upbringing, instead mentioning only the Bronx.
At least she now lives in the Bronx, unlike a former U.S. senator for New York who didn’t live in New York until she decided to represent the state as a U.S. senator. More on her later. Ocasio-Cortez can certainly represent the Bronx, but misrepresenting herself and her upbringing makes her one of the Democrat ladies of the lie.
Across the country in California, in another liberal enclave, is another such lady, Senator Kamala Harris. She is another up and coming socialist in the modern Democratic Party, “[s]tarting to make the right moves for 2020,” according to the Huffington Post. She recently told some tall tales about her past.
She tweeted, in response to the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination, that hers was only the second class in the Berkeley public schools to integrate.
Implying that a Justice Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would automatically bring back slavery and segregation, she seems to be suggesting that confirming Kavanaugh to the high court will prevent anyone of color from becoming a lawyer or a member of Congress.
Unfortunately for her, the truth lies far removed from her tweet. Photos from the Berkeley yearbook from 1963, a year before Harris was even born, shows that the school was already integrated. Oops. more here
