New York Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s embarrassing conversation with a CNN Reporter Sunday revealed her complete ignorance. Apparently, AOC does not understand that America has three EQUAL branches of power and that Congress does not have the ability to undermine the Supreme Court when some members don’t like a ruling.

AOC went on ‘State of the Union and told CNN host Dana Bash that the Congress has authority over the Supreme Court’s decisions,
“We have a broad level of tools to deal with misconduct, overreach, and abuse of power.”

She continued, explaining why the High Court should be curtailed following their recent decisions to uphold the Constitution. In late June, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the First Amendment, protecting free speech and expression by allowing a media company to decide which websites they want to create. The Court also upheld the 14th Amendment, prohibiting colleges from using race to determine admission. Both rulings angered leftists who have largely taken control of the Democrat party. A party that previously advocated for freedom of expression but has moved towards suppression and intolerance at an alarming rate.

Using a mishmash of rhetoric meant to sound smart, AOC instead showed her ignorance of the Constitution and the American system of government. AOC recommended that Congress oversee the Court’s decision to make the Supreme Court legitimate. If Congress attempted to overstep its authority by applying AOC’s absurd suggestion, it would be breaking the law. The Supreme Court does not have to prove its legitimacy. AOC and other Democrats who have attacked the Court have yet to suggest that the other branches of government have to prove their legitimacy. She told Bash,

“The Supreme Court has not been receiving the adequate oversight necessary in order to preserve their own legitimacy. And in the process, they themselves have been destroying the legitimacy of the Court. Which is profoundly dangerous for our entire democracy.”

The left has made a hostile attempt to undermine the Supreme Court and is attacking the brilliant balance of powers given to us by our founding fathers. During the Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe, the left encouraged illegal rioting and picketing outside of Supreme Court Justice’s homes, likely hoping to intimidate them into backing down.
AOC was crushed on social media following her ignorant calls to subpoena the Supreme Court. Twitter users took AOC to task, educating her on the rule of law.

Veteran James Bradley tweeted,

“AOC thinks anything that happens on the national state that she doesn’t like should be eradicated by government. Hate to tell you, lady, but that’s known as fascism, and it isn’t a very good look for an American congressperson…But we must employ the same strict background checks on our congresspeople as we do on our gun buyers because a bad lawmaker can do way more harm than a gun. And AOC uses her platform as a deadly weapon against the American process and the people who rely on and support it.”

Bradley also said AOC should go back to bartending, where her opinions will only be heard by drunks.

Another Twitter user pointed out that when the Supreme Court struck down Biden’s student debt forgiveness act, they were protecting the role of Congress rather than usurping it. Does AOC not understand the lawful separation of powers? Perhaps her ignorant rants are an attempt to stir up an equally undereducated audience.
