    On Tuesday, 2020 Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) continued her cringe-inducing appeal to millennials with a tag-team video about Game of Thrones. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) joined her, to bash the show for not being feminist enough. Their pop culture analysis mimics the gender pay gap complaints by focusing on equal outcomes rather than equal opportunity and character development. Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6 below. "I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with just women running the world and then the last two episodes … it’s like, ‘Oh, they’re too emotional....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., attempted to make a case for universal health care on Thursday after a tense confrontation over the HIV prevention drug known as PrEP. During a congressional hearing, Ocasio-Cortez pressed Gilead Sciences CEO Daniel O'Day on why his company's drug -- Truvada for PrEP -- cost so much more in the United States than in Australia. She later answered her own question on Twitter, saying that the U.S. health care system was to blame. "Spoiler: Because Australia has universal health care," she tweeted. During the hearing, O'Day responded to Ocasio-Cortez by noting how the drug was under...

    On Monday, during a rally held by the controversial Sunrise Movement, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY, 14) expressed that she refuses to allow the Democratic Party to nominate a “middle of the road” candidate in 2020. “I’ll be d*mned if the same politicians who refused to act (in past decades) are going to try to come back today and say we need a ‘middle of the road’ approach to save our lives,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. Ocasio-Cortez remarks come just after former Vice President Joe Biden expressed that democrats need to find “middle ground” on climate change policy, as reported by Reuters. The...
  • If Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders really cared about everyday Americans they would do THIS

    It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the infamous socialists Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., unveiled a new policy that’s aimed at targeting Wall Street. However, the only thing their deceptively titled Loan Shark Prevention Act will do is hurt the pocketbooks of common Americans. The Act would cap all interest rates on consumer loans at 15 percent, effectively eliminating credit line options for millions of Americans. Credit lenders often times extend credit with higher interest rates as a precaution if the potential borrower has bad credit as a way to mitigate risk. For example,...

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz has suggested that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would be the Democratic party’s best candidate to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020 if she were legally able to run. “The key is authenticity,” Luntz told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Tuesday evening. “You want to say what you mean, mean what you say,” he continued. “You want to be able to look straight at the camera and be yourself. And at least half of them [the 2020 Democratic candidates] are trying to be something that they’re not,” he argued. Ingraham then pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez, despite her disagreements...

    There are a couple of stories out today that sketch out a coming battle within the Democratic Party between the far left, led by freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the more moderate left exemplified by Joe Biden. As Buzzfeed reports today, Democratic candidates were quick to jump onboard when Ocasio-Cortez suggested a push to “Abolish ICE” but a few months later almost no one in the field wants to talk about it: The push to abolish ICE surged onto the national stage after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won her primary — in part by hammering her incumbent opponent for voting...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would be her party's best bet against President Trump in 2020 -- if only she were eligible to run for president. That was the observation of pollster Frank Luntz on Tuesday night during an appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." Luntz told host Laura Ingraham that 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez has a "genuine" quality that most of the Democrats seeking the party's presidential nomination seem to lack.

    She was passionate. She was angry. She was borderline psychotic and clearly in need of medication. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivered a bizarre and completely unhinged speech at Monday night's Green New Deal event hosted by the Sunrise Movement. Alternating between screaming at those in attendance and REALLY screaming at those in attendance, the freshman congresswoman eviscerated eardrums as she touted the need to "decarbonize the economy" and for American workers to get paid as much as "they need." Asked to clarify what that amount might be, Ocasio-Cortez responded, "a living wage," then failed to specify what constitutes "a living wage."

    Dwight Schrute is a beloved character from one of America’s all-time favorite shows, “The Office.” He was hilarious. Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is also hilarious in her own way, but certainly not beloved. Check out this tweet from AOC, who berates Republicans and mocks their intelligence… This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it. Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.

    TODAY, THE INTERCEPT launches “A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” a seven-minute film narrated by the congresswoman and illustrated by Molly Crabapple. Set a couple of decades from now, it’s a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone conclusion. Instead, it offers a thought experiment: What if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves?

The New York Democrat said Thursday she would like to see a presidential candidate who has “a coherent world view and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward. I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”

    Twitter supposedly allows parody and satire accounts on its platform. But those privileges seem to only apply to accounts mocking the GOP. An account that parodied Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was suspended on May 6. The user, named Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Press Release, was “permanently suspended” because it was too similar to the Congressional representative’s account. According to the Washington Examiner, the man running the account, Michael Morrison, received an email explaining his permanent suspension and ominously saying, “This account will not be reinstated.” Michael Morrison’s other account, OfficeOfMike, was also permanently suspended as being linked to the Ocasio-Cortez parody...

    Ocasio-Cortez has previously been criticized for transparent attempts at cultivating her image as a poor girl from the Bronx. Newsmax host John Cardillo called her out last year for misleading the American people about her childhood. He tweeted this picture of her childhood home in Yorktown Heights, saying it’s “a far cry from the Bronx hood upbringing she’s selling”: The New York Democrat, never one to shy away from a Twitter feud, fired back, explaining how her mother scrubbed toilets so they could afford to live in that modest home, which apparently didn’t have a garbage disposal. “I grew up...
