  • Watch: AOC Proclaims ‘Latinos Are Black’ and I’m Dead (could get the boot tomorrow)

    I’m not a big fan of accusing people of cultural appropriation. If you want to eat a taco on Cinco de Mayo, have fun. If you like orange chicken, by all means, let’s do this thing. But there’s a difference between casual partaking of other cultures, which is one of the awesome things about America, and trying to appropriate the lived struggles of oppressed people for political and personal gain. That’s what makes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez so insidious. Over and over, usually through the “people of color” canard, she’s tried to equalize her upper crust, pampered upbringing with those who...

    Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr criticized President Trump on Sunday for divulging his thoughts about going down a steep ramp following his speech at West Point earlier this year. Kerr quote-tweeted a video from The Lincoln Project – a political action committee formed by a group of Republicans who don’t want to see Trump get reelected in 2020. Trump made his point about walking down the ramp during his campaign speech in Tulsa, Okla., on Saturday. “There were so many directions he could have gone- Covid-19, unemployment, the murder of George Floyd, systemic racism, global warming, etc. Instead he...
  • Susan Rice: Trump Administration ‘Has Been Racist to Its Core for the Last Three-and-a-Half Years’

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice commented on Mary Elizabeth Taylor resigning as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs because of President Donald Trump’s response to racial tensions in the country. Mitchell said, “I want to ask you about this resignation. Unlike John Bolton, for instance, resigning, and making a lot of money, or Jim Mattis resigning and not explaining until later exactly why he was resigning, this was direct, it was personal, it names President Trump, it was specific.”

    Some of Wall Street's most prominent names have donated thousands of dollars to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary in New York, data from the FEC shows. Federal Election Commission data shows that donors including Goldman Sachs' CEO David Solomon, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, and hedge fund behemoth Paul Tudor Jones have given to the campaign of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC reporter, is going up against Ocasio-Cortez to secure the Democratic nomination for New York's 14th congressional district on June 23. **SNIP** Caruso-Cabrera has raised just over $2 million so far, while Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has received more...

    Alec Baldwin made clear what he thinks about America, launching a fake news filled rant attacking Americans who’ve spent years praising the country’s greatness. The Left-wing actor also blamed President Donald Trump for those killed by the Chinese coronavirus. Baldwin called Trump a “maniac” responsible for overseeing “one of the worst [coronavirus] responses in the world.” “Americans have spent decades telling the world how great we [are],” the Boss Baby star said. “Actually, we don’t shut up about it. And yet we have more deaths from this crisis than anywhere. We have had [one] of the worst responses in the...
  • Roger Waters Sings Terrorists’ Anti-Israel Anthem: ‘We’ll Take Back the Land, from the River to the Sea’

    TEL AVIV – Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters sang that Palestinians will “take back the land, from the Jordan river to the sea,” a battle cry routinely used by terrorists that ultimately calls for the elimination of Israel. Together with anti-Israel far-left British filmmaker Ken Loach, Waters appeared at the UK Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s (PSC) Nakba Day 2020 event, where he claimed that “the Israel lobby and the Israeli government and the Israeli special whatever they are called… [are] trying so hard to destroy the voices of support [for Palestinians],” the UK’s Jewish Chronicle reported. The Palestinian “Nakba” commemorates...
  • AOC allegedly on hook for unpaid seven-year-old tax bill: report

    NY Post via Fox News ^ | 5/18/20 | Carl Campanile
    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on the rich - just not pay her own. The Democratic socialist congresswoman from The Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill leftover from a failed business venture. AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint The Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012. As the Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes...

    (CNN) Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a task force for Joe Biden's campaign on climate change, a source with direct knowledge of the planning tells CNN, a move that adds progressive credentials to the former vice president's effort to unify the party ahead of the general election. The group is one of several task forces being formed to bridge the divide between the polices of Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ended his White House bid last month. "I'm working with Bernie and with his people. And so, and we've made some changes. We've listened to Bernie supporters...

    Responding to a statewide uprising that has led many counties to refuse to continue to abide by his orders, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf had this to say Monday. “These folks are choosing to desert in the face of the enemy. In the middle of a war that we Pennsylvanians are winning, and that we must win. They need to understand the consequences of their cowardly act.” PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR TOM WOLF, 11 MAY 2020

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., condemned the use of three JetBlue aircraft that flew over New York City Thursday as a tribute to the medical community and first responders working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. JetBlue used three planes donned with New York City themes for a one-hour flyover over all five boroughs. The planes -- "I love NY," NYPD and FDNY -- were a tribute to first responders and "hometown health care heroes," the airline said. “Nothing like a corporate PR campaign that burns jet fuel at low altitudes over vulnerable communities dying from a respiratory virus...

    As hundreds of people gathered at the state Capitol building Friday to protest California's stay-at-home order, Governor Gavin Newsom said that the state was only days away from modifying the order. Protesters were observed arguing with members of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) as officers blocked the entrance to the Capitol in Sacramento. Some individuals held American flags while others held protest signs. Several members of the demonstration were detained by law enforcement. Showing opposition to Newsom's administration, a banner was seen flying over the demonstration in Sacramento which depicted the governor as Adolf Hitler. Video of the sign was...

    Samantha Power, the former ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, attacked President Trump's administration for its empty-vessel response to the coronavirus pandemic. Power tweeted: “The saddest form of US leadership: ‘More than 840,000 Americans have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and at least 46,784 have died from it, more than anywhere else in the world.’” The tweet linked to an article out of Europe from The New York Times.
  • Chomsky: Trump’s ‘Adoring’ Crowds Remind Me of Hitler’s Nuremberg Rallies

    Friday on “Democracy Now!,” leftist political activist Noam Chomsky said President Donald Trump’s supporters at his rallies remind him of listening to the crowds at Hitler’s Nuremberg rallies. Host Amy Goodman asked, “Can you talk about what he’s threatening to do right now? First, they reject the WHO tests, that would have been critical, and now saying they’re going to defund the World Health Organization.” Chomsky said, “Well, this is typical behavior of autocrats and dictators. When you make colossal errors, which are killing thousands of people, find somebody else to blame. And in the United States, it’s, unfortunately, the...

    VIDEO The announcement by Bernie Sanders that he is no longer campaigning for the Democrat presidential nomination has caused a wave of very depressed reactions from his supporters. Many of these reactions, as you can see in this video, are quite funny. The only person not depressed is the guy at the end who sees Sanders ending his campaign as a great opportunity to push for Communist revolution.

    **SNIP** Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared a video of a drag queen roundtable that she says will "push society forward." "Electoralism has limits," she wrote. "Elected officials often don’t lead our most impactful societal changes, they follow them. The heroes who lead true change are the activists, artists, organizers & others who educate + push society forward." "People think Congress and government is all about leading people, but ultimately, a lot of our politics is about following the public will. The people who change the way people think are artists and drag queens, and let's not forget who threw that first...

    **SNIP** The stakes were high: In an email to senior staff, Tulchin said that moderate voters were beginning to unify behind Biden and that the consolidation would intensify if he won South Carolina, according to people familiar with the message. But on the stage that night, Sanders didn’t take his aides’ advice. Instead, he largely gave Biden a pass, bashed Bloomberg sometimes - but not over stop-and-frisk - and mostly stuck to his standard talking points. It wasn’t the first nor the last time Sanders eschewed his staffers’ suggestions to be more aggressive with his top rival. Their warnings proved...

    In videos posted Thursday night, far-left U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar push for a seemingly socialist overhaul of the U.S. government in reaction to the coronavirus outbreak. The first-term progressive Democratic congresswomen, from New York and Minnesota, respectively, call for the removal of a “profit motive” from lawmakers’ decisions and the “nationalization” of the nation’s health care system. They and other Democrats have been critical of President Trump’s decision to allow the governors and legislatures of the nation’s 50 states, as well as U.S. territories, to largely set their own strategies for reacting to the virus - which...

    A small group of Bernie Sanders' top aides and allies - including his campaign manager and his longtime strategist - have encouraged the independent senator from Vermont to consider withdrawing from the presidential race, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. The group includes campaign manager Faiz Shakir and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., a top Sanders surrogate and ally, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive private discussions. Sanders himself has become more open to the prospect of dropping out, according to one of the people with knowledge of the situation...
