Robert Hockett Unwillingness To Tell The Truth — Tucker Carlson of Fox News is one of the better interviewers and on Friday (Feb. 8), he sold pompous Cornell professor Robert Hockett enough rope to hang himself.
Hockett seems to be one of the puppet masters of new socialist darling Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) who is being marketed as AOC, an abbreviation of her name.
Anyway, AOC released a bizarre manifesto on Feb. 5 calling for a Green New Deal in which she called for spending trillions to replace airplanes with trains, ban farting cows and provide “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”
Well Hockett sputtered she never said those thing and the phrase came from a “doctored document from someone other than us.”
It is truly amazing how easy it is for progressives to lie without shame.

Anyway, here’s a picture of Adam with Ed Buck and Eric C. Bauman.
Eric Bauman was the powerful chairman of the Los Angeles Democrat Party before becoming state party boss in May 2017. He was forced to step down Nov. 29 after several allegations of sexual assault and harassment by men.
