Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson railed against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for attempting to impose her policies onto the Federal Reserve. He called her by his nickname for her, “Sandy Cortez.”

“Now Sandy Cortez who literally couldn’t balance a checkbook, has never had a real job has decided we need to turn the Fed into a vehicle to fight global warming,” Carlson said. “Imagine a world where Sandy Cortez weighs in on Fed policy or the power grid, but she does.”

AOC recently wrote a letter to President Biden to appoint a new Federal Reserve chair that reflected her values. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Chuy Garcia (D-IL) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) joined her. “We urge President Biden to reimagine a federal reserve focused on eliminating climate risk and advancing racial and economic justice,” the letter read.

“How’s that going to end?” Carlson said. “With people with literally no skills whatsoever who can’t do anything, who could not program a microwave are in charge of the most complex and significant systems in the country.”

By law, he Federal Reserve is mandated only to ensure stable prices and employment.

Oil giant Chevron made a huge announcement saying it will be closing its current global headquarters in San Ramon, California. Even more telling, its encouraging employees to move to Houston, Texas.

The San Francisco Gate reported “the oil company will cover relocation costs for those voluntarily leaving for the Texas office, which has been growing and employs nearly 6,000 people. Meanwhile, the San Ramon office buildings have experienced dwindling numbers in recent years.”

Although the company is not leaving the state completely, “company leadership has pushed for a permanent move to Texas in the past” adds SFGATE. Chevron, which has had “deep roots” in California going back to the late 1800s, will vacate its 100-acre campus in 2023.

The Wall Street Journal reports the business hopes to move into a smaller space in San Ramon, which will remain its headquarters. A company spokesperson told SFGATE “the current real estate market provides the opportunity to right-size our office space to meet the requirements of our headquarters-based employee population.”

“The move is expected to occur during the third quarter of 2023” they continued. “Chevron will remain headquartered in California, where the company has a 140-year history and operations and partnerships throughout the state.”

The SFGATE notes Chevron is one of “the East Bay’s legacy companies joining the trend” to move their headquarters out of the area in recent years. Tech companies such as startups like Coinbase to industry pioneers like Hewlett Packard and Oracle have all vacated, with Elon Musk having been “one particularly outspoken voice decrying California’s business conditions.”
