The rising star of the Democratic Party has expensive tastes for a socialist,” guest host Katie Pavlich said....

    As many have said about socialism, the issue is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. Socialist and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is bound for Congress on an agenda that will cost trillions. $40+ trillion in the first decade alone for her left wing goodies of free college and single-payer health care, those are the two big items. In three decades, the price tag for American democratic socialism will hit $218 trillion. But remember, socialists, like the pigs in Animal Farm, they don’t have to sacrifice a thing. Is Ocasio-Cortez more of a limousine liberal than a...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks the U.S. has 500 million people As of July 1, 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates the U.S. population to be 325,719,178.However, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks the U.S. has 500 million people.She recently stated:“200 million Americans make less than $20,000 a year. That’s 40% of this country.”Skip to 4:45 in this video to hear her say those words:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUmIdCClbTEI certainly would not expect her or anyone else to know the exact number. If she or anyone else had said that the U.S. population was 325 million or 330 million, that would be perfectly reasonable.But 500 million?

    NEW YORK, NY—Star Democratic political candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finally accepted a challenge to debate her economic plan with Count von Count, esteemed number expert from Sesame Street, on a special guest appearance that aired Friday. The congressional candidate got into a heated exchange with the legendary counting expert, fumbling her words as he calmly tallied up the trillions of dollars she hadn’t accounted for in her proposals. “The number of the day is… 30 trillion dollars! Ah! Ah! Ah!” the Count began in his opening statement, as a number “30” puppet followed by a bunch of zeroes started dancing behind...

    VEN (NEW YORK) — “I am like SO HONORED!” an uncharacteristically speechless, self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist Alexandra Octavio-Cortez told reporters, after accepting The Casey Stengel Award For Public Speaking Excellence at the El Club Cubano Interamericanol in the Bronx Sunday. “You have no idea how special this is to me! Dios Mio! Such a great man! My grandfather used to quote him to me when I was a little girl! And I have a recording of his testimony to the Asamblea Legislativa!

    After Ben Shapiro invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to appear on his show for a discussion, she falsely equated his invitation with “catcalling” Conservative Ben Shapiro said he would give $10,000 to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign or favorite charity if she appeared on his show for a discussion.She responded with the following tweet:“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”Shapiro responded to that by saying, among other things:“Have you met me? Have you seen me? Do I seem like the kind of guy...

    Occasional Cortex Disorder (OCD) is a serious medical condition that deteriorates the reasoning power of the human brain.   The OCD brain collects facts, but can't associate or share knowledge across its memory spheres.  If a normal brain is a global network, the OCD brain is a siloed 1980s IBM PC.  OCD causes the cortex to form black holes which gravitationally pull back and stop information from being shared with other spheres. Simple facts the OCD brain can recall, such as: margarita recipes, salsa-sauce-making tips, and kitty litter clean up strategies. However complex thought is restricted.  Questions about foreign policy and...

Bernie Sanders to stump for other left-wing candidates, even as the upstart 28-year-old democratic socialist's rising profile continues to rankle top Democrats. Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are expected to campaign on July 20 for two congressional candidates seeking to unseat Republican incumbents in Kansas: James Thompson in Wichita, and former Sanders delegate Brent Welder in the suburbs of Kansas City. But Ocasio-Cortez is also set to support several progressives seeking...

    .....Ocasio-Cortez said, "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family."..... .....In our review, we found many reasons why unemployment is low, and not for the overwork that Ocasio-Cortez cited. The biggest factors include strong economic confidence and the long-running economic recovery..... ....Over the past 12 months, the number of multiple job holders has ranged between 6 million and 7 million. That compares to more than 148 million Americans who are employed in a single job...... GRAPH AT LINK

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the darndest things. Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally...

    Thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she's now taken a far left fringe issue like Abolish ICE and bringing it to the fore and causing quite the sense of trouble in paradise for the left heading into November. It is for this reason and others that poor Chris Cillizza is in the process of vigorously rubbing his worry beads over the effect the Democrat congressional nominee will have on the political fortunes of other Democrats. One odd thing about Cillizza's July 18 article at CNN is that not once is the S-word mentioned despite the fact that Ocasio-Cortez loudly identifies herself as a...
