    It seems that Democratic socialist and New York City congressional hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lot to learn about Congress. Ocasio-Cortez spoke Monday at her alma mater of Boston University, raising eyebrows with a comment on implementing her campaign promises if she wins in November. "It doesn't mean you get everything tomorrow. As much as I would love that, I would love to get inaugurated January 3rd [and] January 4th we're signing health care, we're signing this."

    PParkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez spoke out against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Friday, calling him a “privileged white boy.” Shortly before the Senate Judiciary Committee voted on confirming Kavanugh, Gonzalez urged her followers on Twitter to contact their senators and ask them to vote against the potential Supreme Court Justice. “Call your senators and tell them to vote no for Kavanaugh,” Gonzalez tweeted.”The future of our country deserves more than a privileged white boy who’s spent his whole life over-drinking and can’t answer a simple question without acting more immature about it than a 4-year-old.” .... Gonzalez and her...

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Cory Booker once called those who supported putting Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the U.S. Supreme Court "complicit in evil." Booker, D-N.J., said he didn't mean it quite that way. But he says he's learned a big lesson. . . . "Some of my comments have been referenced numerous times and I know that I have not been as precise and allowed my comments to be mischaracterized.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California announced plans Sunday to formally oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, saying justices “should not be an extension of the Republican Party.” Ms. Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was troubled by how the nominee had been vetted, citing a lack of documents on Judge Kavanaugh’s career with the Bush administration. But, she wrote in the L.A. Times, her decision was determined by the “very real-world implications” of placing him on the court. “We already knew that Judge Kavanaugh held highly ideological views on the 2nd Amendment,...

    But surely, I push him, Bach could give Trump a valuable lesson in humility; if he asked you to do a private performance . . . ? “Would I play for him on his deathbed? No,” Ma says. “I operate on the premise that absolutely anybody can change, and I also recognise that it’s possible that somebody may never change . . . I also think, just by observing the performance arts world, huge ego is very often matched by huge insecurity.”

    A survivor of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, ripped Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Saturday after he complained about an upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic for failing to include the astronaut planting an American flag on the moon. Sarah Chadwick, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, tweeted at the senator in response to his comment slamming the film’s omission as “total lunacy.” “Where was this energy from you when 17 people [were] killed at my school?” she tweeted, alongside the senator's comment. The tweet quickly went viral, garnering more than 3,500 retweets and 19,000 “likes” in...

    PHILADELPHIA — An arbitrator is sending Colin Kaepernick’s grievance with the NFL to trial, denying the league’s request to throw out the quarterback’s claims that owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests of social injustice. Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos tweeted a picture Thursday of a ruling by arbitrator Stephen B. Burbank. The former 49ers quarterback argues that owners have colluded to keep him off any NFL roster since he hit free agency in 2017.

    A Massachusetts Democrat has added a plank to her campaign platform: Impeach Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Barbara L'Italien, a state senator running in a crowded field to replace retiring Rep. Niki Tsongas, is declaring her intention to file an impeachment resolution against Thomas as part of an effort to address sexual assault if elected to Congress. L'Italien said she is also calling for congressional hearings into President Donald Trump's alleged sexual misconduct. “There is an elephant in the room for Congress in the #MeToo era. Our leaders have to start talking about it. Two of the most powerful men...

    ATLANTA Georgia's Democratic candidate for governor told more than 1,000 attendees at the party's state convention Saturday that Democrats' fate in November rests with people who don't usually vote. "In the areas of town we pass by and write off because no one there votes; we've gotta stop the car and go back," Stacey Abrams told the crowd in Atlanta. Driving turnout was a major theme of the event and has long been a staple for Abrams in her bid to become Georgia's first Democratic governor in 15 years and the nation's first-ever black female state chief executive.

    Oprah Winfrey waded deeper into political waters this summer by promoting the “Shout Your Abortion” movement and its attempts to normalize the killing of unborn babies. The July issue of her “O” magazine featured “Shout Your Abortion” founder Amelia Bonow in its “Inspiration” section, CNS News reports. Bonow, who began the campaign to urge women to brag about aborting their unborn babies, soon will be coming out with a new book by the same title, according to the report. She told the magazine how it all began in 2015: “[W]hen I found out that the House of Representatives had voted...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will introduce legislation Wednesday aimed at making the nation's largest companies accountable to employees and their local communities, not just shareholders. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Warren said companies in the late 20th Century started operating in a way that made them slaves to shareholders. "That shift has had a tremendous effect on the economy," she wrote. "In the early 1980s, large American companies sent less than half their earnings to shareholders, spending the rest on their employees and other priorities." "But between 2007 and 2016, large American companies dedicated 93% of their...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have just handed Republicans a ready-made campaign ad for his rumored 2020 presidential bid – by declaring Wednesday that America “was never that great.” The Democratic star made the seemingly offhand remark as part of his rebuke of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan during a bill-signing in New York. But the line drew gasps from the crowd. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles. “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American...

    PHILADELPHIA - Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins resumed his protest against social injustice during the playing of the national anthem prior to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Defensive end Chris Long put his arm around Jenkins in a sign of support, as he did for much of last season. Defensive back De'Vante Bausby also raised a fist. Defensive end Michael Bennett appeared on the field during the playing of the anthem and walked behind his teammates, most of whom were lined up along the sideline.
