There were few of us thought that the arrival of Ocasio-Cortez came from out of the blue. Our hunch included that perhaps Soros may have had his long fingers in this special find.
After all, a media darling in no time flat. Even after making a total fool of herself with her lack of savvy about most everything, the beat goes on. Merely a primary winner, she already has been chosen for President in say 2020?
It turns out she as well as Cynthia Nixon, candidate in New York for Governor had some powerful backing including from the George Soros’ Media Consortium.
Ocasio-Cortez was a Bernie Sanders organizer.
And as Rich Weinstein in a great Twitter thread points out, this is what her website looks like now:
But this is what it looked like last year according to the Wayback archive.
What is a Brand New Congress?
Their goal was to have 400 candidates to run for Congress by last year and each of those 400 is supposed to commit to a similar far left platform including immigration reform and the abolishment of ICE.
Justice Democrats were founded in part by Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks and former Bernie people. And they are promoting not just Congressional candidates but gubernatorial candidates like Cynthia Nixon in New York.
And as Ocasio-Cortez notes in this interview after with Uygur at the ten-minute mark that BNC and the Justice Democrats were instrumental in soliciting her and then promoting her “after she left Standing Rock” which means she was among the far left pipeline protesters.
Start at about the ten minute mark:
Uygur doesn’t, however, explain in the interview about his connection to the effort.
And Uygur’s Young Turks is part of the Soros Media Consortium that provided wattage for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign. According to the MRC, this provides favorable coverage to 300 million people across the globe in a month.
