NYC SPIRALS: Biz Owners Say Boroughs Needed ‘Amazon Deal’ to Shore Up Local Economy During Pandemic

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.16.20

Furious business owners across the five boroughs targeted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week; saying the local economy would have survived the global pandemic with the “Amazon Deal” she and fellow progressives sank in recent years.

“Someone like Amazon would have brought business to the area. Especially, not just here for Long Island City, but surrounding Long Island and small business. Right now, we’re at such a difficult point,” Cerbone, the owner of Manducatis Rustica restaurant in Queens, told “America’s Newsroom.”

“People were so opposed to [Amazon] from the very beginning, but, the politicians were not understanding this was about keeping small business running and not about them,” Cerbone said.

“The company, however, announced that it had dropped plans to build a new headquarters in Queens amid pressure from politicians and activists over the tax breaks it would receive. Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and state Sen. Mike Gianaris were among the fiercest opponents of the plan, while Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio supported the proposal,” reports Fox News.

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated her ongoing feud with Facebook Thursday; saying the social media platform relies on “white supremacists” to be “successful.”

“Zuckerberg is not worried about being bullied by Trump. He is worried that Facebook’s PR operation is falling apart as it’s exposed that their platform relies on white supremacists & disinformation peddlers to be successful. They aren’t ignoring them. They’re protecting them,” posted AOC on social media.


Ocasio-Cortez ripped the White House’s use of a standard labor index this week; saying ‘Human Capital Stock’ is “an ugly term with an ugly history.”

“Human Capital Stock. An ugly term w ugly history, but for many powerful ppl it‘s their most honest view of workers: human stock. By their logic, the moment a person stops being useful to profit motive (retirement, health, etc) they are a liability. That’s the system we live in,” posted AOC on social media.
