    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, one of the most influential voices among young liberals and a rising Democratic star, plans to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president and appear with him at a rally on Saturday, according to two people with knowledge of her plans. The surprise endorsement is a political coup for Sanders, 78, who has been fading in the polls and has faced growing questions about his age and health. Before Tuesday’s Democratic debate, he had been sidelined from the campaign trail for two weeks by a heart attack. “We’re looking forward to Saturday,” said Corbin...

    BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping warned on Sunday that any attempt to divide China will be crushed, as Beijing faces political challenges in months-long protests in Hong Kong and U.S. criticism over its treatment of Muslim minority groups. FILE PHOTO: Chinese President Xi Jinping attends the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations in Beijing, China May 15, 2019.

    “I speak to you not as an elected official or a public figure, but I speak to you as a human being," the freshman congresswoman told a climate summit in Copenhagen. "A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children's future," she added, apparently choking back tears.
  • Did AOC spend too much on a haircut? NYC women reveal what they pay at the salon

    How much is too much to blow on a new ‘do? Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got the $260 cut and color heard ’round the world, reactions have been mixed. Detractors accuse her of “champagne socialism,” while others argue the price tag is within reason for a public figure — and a New Yorker at that. “I don’t think it’s outlandish,” megastylist Scott Buchanan tells The Post. Prices at his five NYC-area Scott J salons start at $75 for a cut and $90 for color, with lowlights such as the ones AOC received starting at $160. He also notes that...

    How far will Elizabeth Warren bend to get that coveted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsement? Apparently, to some amazing ends. The fake Indian Democratic presidential frontrunner, who's already surging past scandal-mired Joe Biden among the young, now says she endorses Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's plan for every illegal immigrant to get the full panoply of U.S. welfare benefits. That's in addition to the 'free' health care benefits they're in line to get from Democrats: According to the Washington Free Beacon: Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren endorsed a Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) policy proposal that includes taxpayer-funded welfare benefits for illegal immigrants. Ocasio-Cortez's proposal, dubbed "A Just...

    New York City Council Member Fernando Cabrera (D) has launched a primary bid to unseat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). Cabrera filed last week with the Federal Election Commission to run for the seat in New York's 14th District, which includes parts of the Bronx and Queens. Cabrera has represented the Bronx in New York's City Council since 2010, his campaign website notes. Politico reported that he officially began his campaign on Thursday. “Only a Democrat is going to be able to defeat her, and it’s going to be a moderate Democrat,” he told the news outlet. “She’s a no-show in...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended on Thursday her pricey haircut, claiming the 'right-wing' is 'mad' she looks good while promoting Democratic socialism. The 29-year-old progressive congresswoman received a $260 haircut and dye last month, the Washington Times revealed in a Wednesday article that criticized the lawmaker for 'preaching socialism while living the life of the privileged.' '40 million Americans live in poverty under today's extreme inequality, yet the right-wing want you to blame Democratic socialism for their own moral failures,' Ocasio-Cortez posted to her Twitter a day after the report circulated. 'Our policies, like Medicare for All, advance prosperity for working people....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who’s waged war against the wealthy with a 70 percent tax rate proposal — shelled out more than $250 on a recent trip to the hair salon, according to a new report. The socialist darling dropped big bucks — $80 on a haircut and $180 for lowlights — last month at Last Tangle Salon in downtown Washington, DC, the Washington Times reported, citing sources. The outlet noted that a 20 percent tip, or $52, would bring the total to just over $312, while suggesting she could’ve saved about $100 for a chop at the “government-subsidized” Capitol...

    A bipartisan coalition of members of Congress sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on Wednesday “to express our deep concern” over the NBA’s statements surrounding controversy over a tweet last week by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who expressed support for pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. “It is outrageous that the Chinese Communist Party is using its economic power to suppress the speech of American inside the United States. It is also outrageous that the NBA has caved to Chinese government demands for contrition,” the letter reads. It was co-signed by eight members of Congress, including Republican...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking the Green New Deal global. The New York Democrat posted an Instagram story Tuesday afternoon showing herself walking through the airport as she headed for her first trip abroad as a freshman lawmaker. She’s off to Copenhagen, Denmark, for the C40 World Mayors Summit. “After a very busy week in district, I’m headed to Copenhagen for a global C40 conference where mayors and a lot of other public servants are going to be convening to discuss what we’ll be – what actions we need to take for the climate crisis,” she told her followers. Mayors...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked President Donald Trump’s proposal to withdraw remaining U.S. troops from Syria, tweeting Tuesday that a pullout could have “catastrophic consequences.” Ocasio-Cortez’s stance is a complete reversal of her earlier position on the war in Syria and other “endless wars” overseas. She ran in 2018 on a pledge to end the war in Syria and elsewhere: “Alexandria believes that we must end the “forever war” by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world,” her 2018 campaign website said:

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., defended her call for potential "prison abolition" as part of broader restructuring of the criminal justice system, in a series of tweets Monday. "Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery," Ocasio-Cortez wrote in reaction to a tweet from comedian Chelsea Handler. "To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country." The Democrat recalled a conversation she had with a woman who was "thrown into...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused President Trump of anti-Semitism for his criticism of Rep. Adam Schiff “Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted anti-Semitism,” the freshman Democrat posted Saturday “His bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” she added in another post. Trump called AOC a “Wack Job” in a Friday post that taunted her after a supposed constituent ranted about eating babies to combat climate change at the congresswoman’s Thursday town hall.

    The extremist, antisemitic LaRouche PAC claimed responsibility for the “troll” at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) town hall on Thursday, who said we must “eat the babies” in order to save the planet from climate change. The bizarre moment unfolded at Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall at the Queens Public Library on Thursday after a woman stood up and proclaimed that we must “eat the babies” to save the planet from climate change, leaving the New York lawmaker dumbfounded. “A Swedish professor [said] we can eat dead people, but that’s not fast enough. So I think your next campaign slogan has to be...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is promoting a new package of left-wing economic policies, including national rent control and expanding welfare to illegal immigrants across the country, as part of a massive new proposal aiming to achieve a “just society.” The freshman lawmaker, who champions the multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal proposal to combat economic inequality and climate change, has now proposed a package of bills aimed at solving perceived economic injustice. “A just society provides a living wage, safe working conditions, and healthcare. A just society acknowledges the value of immigrants to our communities. A just society guarantees safe, comfortable, and...

    President Donald Trump and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) have been in an ongoing battle. Schiff has repeatedly done everything in his power to make sure President Trump is impeached. For more than two years he told the American people he had the smoking gun, the evidence we needed to prove Trump colluded with Russia. His hopes and dreams were crushed when Special Counsel Robert Mueller – the very guy Democrats wanted to investigate the claims – found no collusion took place. Schiff got a "do over" now that a whistleblower came forward claims President Trump threatened Ukrainian...

    A woman who was thought to be a supporter of left-wing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez an urged people to “eat babies” to save the planet from a supposed environmental meltdown now appears to be someone trolling AOC. As the Daily Caller reports, a fringe political group is taking credit for the disturbance and subsequent national attention the woman created: LaRouche PAC, a fringe political action committee, took credit for the stunt Thursday evening on Twitter and noted the congresswoman didn’t “rule out eating babies.” The group responded to multiple tweets on the incident, writing “it was us” repeatedly, The Washington Post...
