    A 62-year-old Jewish man claims his attacker repeatedly shouted 'Allah' as he beat him in the middle of the road in Brooklyn, New York Sunday morning. Lipa Schwartz was on his way to synagogue when livery driver Farrukh Afzal, 37, battered him until another Hasidic man came to the rescue. 'All of a sudden 'boom!' I tried to protect myself, run away. I fell. He come again on me,' Schwartz told ABC7 Eyewitness News.

    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....

    BROOKLYN — A Brooklyn woman is under fire after calling 911 on a young child, claiming he had groped her inside a Brooklyn deli. The incident has sparked a firestorm on social media because the woman is white and the young child is black. It all happened Wednesday at the Sahara Deli Market on Albemarle Road in Flatbush. The woman identified as Teresa Klein was being rung up at the front counter when the child walked by. According to Klein, the boy “grabbed my ass,” prompting her to call 911. Video of the exchange outside the deli when Klein confronted...

    Alexandria Ocasio Cortez appeared on MsNBC with Chris Hayes last week ago to discus her views on how to properly represent her constituents in Congress. Alex Parker at Redstate spotted a jarring similarity between Ms. Know-Nothing and another amazingly clueless young lady: Miss Teen South Carolina 2007: Of course Caitlin was running for a beauty contest title and Alexandra is running for, well, you know. But her answer is equally epic: (from Redstate) On October 5th, Alexandria appeared on MSNBC to let loose a few more syllables to…well…you’ll see.Host Chris Hayes gushed:“How are you going get along with these people...
  • Ocasio-Cortez: 'There's no debate' that fossil fuel production should stop

    Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied an audience of supporters in Washington Thursday evening with calls to implement single-payer health care and tuition-free college – along with an appeal to stop fossil fuel production entirely. Ocasio-Cortez, who is running to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District, has made no secret of her opposition to fossil fuels. She’s called for politicians to forsake donations from the industry and is pushing a “Green New Deal” plan which entails a shift to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. But she cast her position in stark terms Thursday, during a fundraiser at a restaurant...

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | October 12, 2018 | Brian
    Here is nutcase Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez literally saying Democrats should “Pack” the U.S. Supreme Court if they can regain control of the House, Senate and the Presidency. This because there is now a 5-4 Conservative Majority on the U.S. Supreme Court thanks to President Trump’s two Supreme Court choices. Ocasio-Cortez was asked what should be done about this new reality and she said, “We take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the Presidency and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America.” This hearkens back to Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s...

    Reason ^ | October 8, 2018
    Now that the Senate has confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, some Democrats are turning their fire on the idea that each state should be equally represented in the upper chamber of Congress. "The idea that North Dakota and New York get the same representation in the Senate has to change," NBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian tweeted. Others, like GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe, took issue with the Electoral College, which allowed Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump to place four justices on the Court, even though Bush and Trump lost the popular vote in 2000 and 2016,...

  • Senate defeats measure to overturn Trump expansion of non-ObamaCare plans

    The Hill ^ | 10/10/18 | PETER SULLIVAN
    The Senate on Wednesday defeated a Democratic measure to overrule President Trump’s expansion of non-ObamaCare insurance plans as Democrats seek to highlight health care ahead of the midterm elections. The Democratic measure would have overruled Trump’s expansion of short-term health insurance plans, which do not have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or cover a range of health services like mental health or prescription drugs. It was defeated on an extremely narrow, mostly party line 50-50 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voting with Democrats in favor of overturning the short-term plans. Republicans argue the short-term plans simply provide a...

    Talk about a Freudian slip, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, with a slip of the tongue, voiced what anyone paying attention already knows, that being that there are no moderate Democrats left. Doing what Democrats do best, projecting and flipping the narrative, the head of the party who called un accomplished democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez its “future,” appeared on MSNBC to suggest the GOP is the party of extremists — except his tongue couldn’t keep up with his deceptive mind. “When you see the mistreatment of Dr. Ford, that’s a mistreatment of every woman across America,” Perez declared. “When...
  • Senate Dems to force vote this week to overrule Trump ObamaCare change

    The Hill ^ | 10/08/18 | PETER SULLIVAN
    Democrats are planning to force a vote in the Senate this week on overturning a Trump administration rule expanding non-ObamaCare insurance plans. The Democratic resolution, which will likely get a vote on Wednesday, would overturn a rule finalized in August that expanded the availability of short-term health insurance plans. Democrats decry the plans as “junk” insurance because they does not need to cover pre-existing conditions or follow other ObamaCare rules. Republicans argue the plans provide a cheaper option alongside ObamaCare plans. The resolution, which is supported by all 49 Senate Democrats, is unlikely to pass given that it would need...

    ACORNÂ’s tactics live on in the senatorÂ’s elevator confrontation with activists from a Soros-backed group. On Friday morning, two women raced past reporters and security officers and blocked a senators-only elevator in the U.S. Capitol. They cornered Arizona senator Jeff Flake, who had just announced he was going to vote yes on moving Brett KavanaughÂ’s nomination out of the Judiciary Committee and onto the Senate floor for a full debate. The women wouldnÂ’t let Flake leave until they had yelled at him, face to face, for several minutes. Anyone who thinks the two left-wing activists acted without a well-thought-out plan...

    New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio has agreed to meet with members of a homelessness advocacy group following backlash he received for brushing off an activist who confronted him at the gym, The Hill reported on Sunday. De Blasio, who has promised to deal with homelessness, was approached last Thursday by 72-year-old activist Nathylin Flowers Adesegun while he was doing a workout at the Brooklyn YMCA, but dismissed her by saying "I’m not doing this here," according to footage of the encounter posted on YouTube. De Blasio then walked away from Flowers Adesegun as his bodyguard stepped in between them...

    Apparently triggered by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat Socialist running for the House of Representatives, demanded an end to the Electoral College, and in so doing, also exhibited her complete ignorance about our history and form of governance. “It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” she said in response to another tweet lamenting the fact that four Supreme Court justices have been appointed by two Republican presidents.

    Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour on Friday launched a racial attack against Sen. Susan Collins, saying the Maine Republican was guilty of espousing “white supremacy” with her decision to support the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ms. Sarsour, a prominent Palestinian-American activist, blasted Ms. Collins on Twitter as a “white woman” and the “mother & grandmother of white women in America who gave us a Donald Trump presidency.”

    The women who were screaming at Senator Jeff Flake in the elevator are Soros-funded astroturfed activists. Their names are Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila. ***** They celebrated after Flake caved! And they raised over $30,000 on CrowdPac for their elevator antics. ***** Ana Maria Archila (on right in picture above) is from Colombia where she says she was sexually abused as a child. She was screaming at Jeff Flake in a elevator on Capitol Hill. Earlier this week, thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we discovered Ana Maria Archila is an illegal alien. So we now have illegal alien Soros-paid activists...

    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."
