Barack Obama snubs Ocasio-Cortez

Barack Obama has come out of relative political hiding to endorse an array of Democratic candidates in the midterm elections.

The former president released the list of 81 candidates on Twitter Wednesday — in elections as large in scale as Governor, as well as smaller races such as State Senate.

“I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, and the rule of law,” Obama said of his picks. “But first, they need our votes.”

This is just the first wave of endorsements from 44 for these midterms, but it leaves out a few pretty large names, including New York’s rising star, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez gained quick fame after defeating Democratic establishment candidate Joe Crowley (D-NY) in the race for New York’s 14th congressional district. She campaigned with Sen. Bernie Sanders(I-VT) for a Democratic primary candidate in Kansas and is a vocal champion of human rights, speaking out about injustices on the campaign trail and on social media.

No word yet from her campaign about the snub.

  1. Obama left behind a legacy of warmongering and corruption comparable to the days of George H W Bush. He presented himself hypocritically to the US public as a peace loving democrat who would bring the troops home from Afghanistan – for which he received the Nobel Peace Prize – an absurdity in the same category as Henry Kissinger’s award. He did bring the troops home but sent more of them back again. He teamed up with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State to destabilise Libya and lynch Gaddafi.
    During his two terms Obama sacked numerous generals and admirals he feared may stage a coup. He promised to repeal the onerous Patriot Act and close Guantanamo Bay. He did neither. He began the campaign of vilification against President Assad, and promoted the fiction that it was a civil war in Syria. With help from Israel, Obama recruited, trained, equipped and paid mercenaries, ISIS, to slaughter Syrians and pretend they were rebels. He bombed the Sudan and Somalia began the US invasion of Africa.
    Obama supported Saudi Arabia against Yemen, where the US allegedly used a pathogen to create a cholera epidemic and armed the Saudis with cluster bombs. The US/Saudis blockaded the port causing starvation and death.
    Towards the end of his disastrous two terms he, like Hillary Clinton, used private emails for classified government business, and Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and Robert Mueller sold uranium 1 to Russia. This happened shortly after Bill Clinton netted millions of dollars for a Russian speech.
    Worst of all was the tragic and preventable torture and assassination of Ambassador Stevens and his staff at Benghazi. Apparently those responsible knew where to find Ambassador Stevens by hacking Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private emails. To ensure poor Stevens had no chance, Obama stood down a rescue team of Navy Seals.
    Obama used the Patriot Act to gaol numerous whistleblowers who dared to tell the truth.
    There is a monument in Kenya which commemorates Obama’s birth. His Hawaiian birth certificate was proved conclusively to be a forgery. His social security belonged to a dead Connecticut man.
