Not only did Republicans make big gains in the U.S. House on Election Day, but among those elected are men and women whose families fled communist and socialist countries and came to America to build better lives.
As regular readers doubtlessly know, the 2018 midterm elections presented Americans with a new phenomenon in the form of the congressional "Squad": several avowedly anti-Israel (and often Islamist-allied) first-term U.S. Representatives. Now, as the smoke from #Election2020 begins to dissipate, it seems that (spoiler alert) The Squad's congressional anti-Zionist cabal is about to get a little bigger.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) thought posting a picture of herself throwing a death stare at Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in response to him condemning socialism and defunding the police was a smart idea.
Instead, it shows how AOC is full of herself and there's still a divide in the Democratic Party.
A few weeks ago, former Clinton Administration official Robert Reich called for a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" to identify and shame people associated with Trump's presidency. Now AOC, Jennifer Rubin, and others are actually pushing just such a thing. These are the people who accused Trump of being a fascist.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—darling of the far-left and heroine of the anti-Israel lobby—recently canceled an appearance sponsored by far left 'pro-Israel' groups, and reportedly is avoiding meeting with mainstream Jewish groups. In this post, I go over the background of how we got here.
So first of all, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez spoke for over 90 seconds, but that matters far less than the fact that she used her tiny pre-recorded time slot to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president over the presumptive nominee, former Vice President Biden.
The Democratic National (Online) Convention is off to a great start.
AOC, relogated to a one-minute pre-taped statement, is upset that John "Pay Attention to Me" Kasich is getting more time. And Kasich is scratching back at AOC.
And also telling. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has been giving a whole 60 seconds for a pre-rerecorded spot at the upcoming Democrat National Convention. Can't risk having her go off-script or having too much time to say anything crazy.
The Democratic National Convention is happening in a little over a week, and it's still not clear if progressive darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have a speaking role.
Former Ohio Governor John Kasich, a Republican, is confirmed but not AOC. That's hilarious.
New York City witnessed 15 shootings in 15-hours on Saturday as violence continues to surge in the Big Apple.
On July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city council passed a budget, which included $1 billion cuts from the NYPD.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn't blame the cuts. Instead, she blamed unemployment "because struggling residents are forced to shoplift in order to 'feed their children.'"
I tend to avoid writing about socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) because I find her intensely off-putting on any number of levels. But her bizarre victory dance over the questionable claim that TikTok users sabotaged President Trump's Tulsa rally seems worth addressing.
Former CNBC correspondent Michelle Caruso-Cabrera launched her campaign in the Democratic primary to challenge Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in the 14th District.
AOC faces off against about twelve challengers. The primary will take place on June 23.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to continue celebrating his impeachment acquittal by the Senate.
Trump made a series of predictions like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez primarying Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Republicans winning the Alabama Senate seat, and Rep. Jerry Nadler will lose to his primary opponent.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has ruffled feathers on both sides of the aisle since she started her tenure in Congress.
Democrats are now ticked off because Ocasio-Cortez has not paid the $250,000 dues she owes to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
