    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday there is nothing she would trade for President Donald Trump’s border wall, setting a hard negotiating stance in advance of an expected December showdown over the issue. “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” the California Democrat said during a discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Furious tenants of a public housing project in the Bronx were pleading for help Monday, saying their buildings are overrun with rats — and they’re not kidding. They have the video to prove it. But we should warn you, the pictures are not for the squeamish. “I’m traumatized,” tenant Veronica Martinez told CBS2’s Marcia Kramer. You’d be traumatized, too, if you had the same kitchen as Martinez. Rats. An entire family of rats, some as big as cats, have taken over, hopping in the sink, into pots and pans. It’s absolutely gut wrenching. “I should never...

    Full title: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Picks And Chooses Which Parts of Her Life to Highlight – But Here's What She Left Out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Congressional candidate from New York, hit the scene a few months ago and quickly became the face of the future of the Democratic Party. Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    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."

    Former President Barack Obama on Monday endorsed dozens of Democrats in races across the country, including liberal darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her New York House race. Obama had left Ocasio-Cortez off his initial round of 81 endorsements over the summer, prompting speculation over why the ex-president had seemingly snubbed the Democratic socialist candidate who defeated House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in the primary and whose big-government views align with those of Sen. Bernie Sanders. However, on Monday, Obama included her name on the list of 260 endorsed candidates for governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House and state legislatures.

    Former President Barack Obama on Friday lectured Europeans on rising nationalism across the continent and beyond while speaking before entrepreneurs in Denmark — two days after taking a swipe at the Trump administration’s environmental policy in Norway. “I’m concerned enough about the international and American trends that I thought it was important to offer my views,” Obama, who is on a break from campaigning for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections for a series of speaking engagements around Europe, told attendees of a business forum in the central city of Kolding.

    New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended an ambitious slate of policy proposals Sunday, casting the various planks of her Democratic Socialist agenda as long-term investments that would pay dividends for future generations of Americans. “What we need to realize is that these investments are better and they are good for our future," Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union." "These are generational investments," she said. "They're not short-term Band-Aids, but they are really profound decisions about who we want to be as a nation and how we want to act as the wealthiest nation in...

    Two politicians not known for brevity will face off at 6 p.m on statewide television. When Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and his Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke, face off in their first debate Friday, watch as two long-winded politicians struggle for brevity. This past weekend, a reporter asked Cruz a simple question about Hurricane Harvey. His answer lasted 3 minutes, 57 seconds—which is forever on television. O’Rourke recently used 3 minutes, 38 seconds to give his defense of National Football League players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against blacks. The abridged version of...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    Was this Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez part two? Not really, but we’ll get to that in a moment. Another senior Democratic congressman with ten terms under his belt has been knocked off in another primary that nobody had predicted. Congressman Michael Capuano of the 7th district in Massachusetts was dethroned in his primary battle by Boston councilwoman Ayanna Pressley. So thorough was the upset that NBC News is reporting Capuano sent in his concession statement when only 4 percent of the vote had been counted. A month ago, Ayanna Pressley told NBC News she was in “a fight for the soul...

    Just a decade ago, “socialism” was a dirty word in American politics. Debates over its merits were mostly limited to obscure blogs, niche magazines and political parties on the other side of the Atlantic. But more recently Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a handful of other politicians have breathed new life into the label, injecting a radical alternate vision for the U.S. economy into the mainstream political debate. Ahead of the midterms, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and Kansas’ James Thompson have proudly held up their endorsements from Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest socialist group, whose numbers...

    Labor Day, a creation of the labor movement, is a public holiday held on the first Monday in September. It is a national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Of course you need jobs in order for workers to contribute to the “strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country” so you might think everyone would be cheering President Trump on today for all the jobs his administration has created.But they’re not. So I’ll take this opportunity to present a brief public service announcement. It’s actually a warning about the path...
