It will haunt this imbecile for decades to come. The economic forecast shows that New York City is edging toward financial disaster. Amazon was the lifesaver.
Peggy Noonan described it this way:
Twenty-five thousand jobs lost, maybe 40,000 when all is said and done, and of all kinds—high-tech, management, white-collar, blue. All the construction, and the signs and symbols of a coming affluence: the streets lit bright, the sidewalks busy, shops and restaurants humming, hiring. The feeling of safety you have when you pass doorways on the street at night and can hear laughter and conversation on the other side.
This is not just “a loss,” it is a whole lost world. And it is a watershed event for my town. After Amazon’s withdrawal no major American company will open a new headquarters here for at least a generation. No CEO is going to do what Jeff Bezos did, invest all that time and money, do all the planning, negotiating and deciding, only to see it collapse in bitter headlines because the politicians you’re making the deal with can’t control their own troops, and because in the end it is summoning a humiliation to do big business in a town whose political life is dominated by a wild and rising progressive left.
“More Bad News for the Chattering Parrot: Ocasio-Cortez Blamed as ‘Biggest Villain’ in Amazon HQ Pullout,” by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, March 18, 2019:
More bad news for the Socialist talking parrot.
A new poll from Siena College blames Socialist Ocasio-Cortez as the biggest villain in Amazon cancelling its plans to move their headquarters to New York City.
Two-thirds of voters say the cancellation was bad for New York.
The Amazon spokesperson also blamed Ocasio-Cortez after the plan was scrapped.
