I love everything about this.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York is planning to visit Kentucky soon despite being uninvited by one of the state’s Republican members of Congress.

Corbin Trent, a spokeswoman for the New York congresswoman, told CNN on Friday that they’ve been invited by other Kentuckians and that plans are in the works for a visit to the Bluegrass State on their own, though the exact timing is unclear.

“Luckily, we still have open borders with Kentucky, we are free to travel there,” Trent said. “We hope to visit and have a town hall, listen to concerns of workers in Kentucky.”

AOC was originally invited to visit Kentucky by Congressman Andy Barr who challenged her to visit Kentucky to explain her Green Bew Deal to the coal miners.

When Ocasio-Cortez immediately took him up on that offer Barr then backpedaled and claimed she would have to apologize to Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas who she called out online for refusing to co-sponsor the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, after he attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar for remarks of her’s that were taken out of context.

I think this is a great idea and I would bet money that AOC wins over a number of Kentuckians with her visit and perhaps even gains some more support for her Green New Deal in the process. 

I would encourage more Democrats to go into supposedly hostile red states and demonstrate to everybody who shows up that they are compassionate people only trying to what is best for the American people.

    AOC will turn KY blue. Sarah will go berserk and blame her for trying to take god out of the heartland. Then AOC will do the same in PA, FL, TX, and OH. Sarahs head will start melting. Then AOC will get the masses to see there is no literal savior. The borders of Christianity will melt. Fast food will be no more. Guns will be smelted. Aggression will be no more. Everyone globally would retroactively get a Waldorf education. We will all be dancing amongst flowers. It will be a contest of smiles. Rainbows will be our source of transportation.
    And Sarah will have melted into a puddle.

    #WakeUpAmerica How is it the American people are picking up the tab for Education Secretary DeVos to tour the country supporting her “rush to privatize public education.”
    “‘I know you’ve had a few frustrations,’ DeVos said during the discussion with [KY Governor] Bevin and other school choice supporters. ‘I just want to encourage you to keep at it and keep fighting.'”
    “Critics of the scholarship tax credit proposal in Kentucky have said it would divert money away from public education. An analysis by the Legislative Research Commission found it would cost the state $209 million in tax revenue by 2025.” (VMY)

    ““The moratorium provided protections on public lands for more than 14 months,” Morris said in Friday’s 34-page order. He added that lifting the moratorium was a “major federal action” sufficient to trigger requirements for a detailed analysis of its environmental impacts.”

    “The decision means that “the Interior Department has to go back to the drawing board if they want to continue to sell coal mining leases on public lands — they have to do a better job of legally and scientifically justifying this,” said Jenny Harbine, an attorney for Earthjustice, who took part in the oral arguments against the Trump administration.” ” 40-odd Trump administration environmental and actions have been rolled back, delayed, or suspended, following judicial review. “
