    "I would encourage my colleagues to visit, meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear," Omar said at a news conference. "We cannot let Trump and Netanyahu succeed in hiding the cruel reality of the occupation from us." "There is no way that we are ever, ever going to allow people to tear us down, to see us cry out of pain, to ever make us feel like our (citizenship) certificate is less than theirs," Omar said. "So we are going to...

    Meh, whatever. The only former Trump cabinet officials this guy’s talking to are the voices inside his own h— [record scratch] Anthony Scaramucci dined with the former U.S ambassador Nikki Haley ten days before publicly withdrawing his support from Donald Trump and warning Republicans the president ‘eventually turns on everyone’. The former White House aide, 55, was seen ‘in deep discussion’ with Ms Haley at a Harlem restaurant just over a week before he suggested the Republican Party had better find another leader for the 2020 elections…The pair’s sighting, which was reported by Page Six today, comes after the...
  • AOC: Trump's coalition includes 'racists' and those who 'could be susceptible' to racism

    Fox News ^ | August 16, 2019 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., weighed in on President Trump's supporters Thursday, saying a "core part" of the president's base is composed of "racists" and "people who could be susceptible to racist views." She also said many discussions on racism devolve into defenseness because "we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism." The far-left freshman congresswoman made the remarks during an appearance on the podcast "Pod Save America," hosted by former Obama administration staffer Jon Favreau. At one point, Favreau asserted that "there's racism there" when crowds gather for Trump rallies. But Ocasio-Cortez said it's more important...

    A new analysis of those who have given political contributions to socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) reelection campaign has reportedly found that only 10 contributors live inside her district. "The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election," The Daily Caller News Foundation's Andrew Kerr reported. "The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign's itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019." While Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshman representatives, the DCNF found...

    Only 10 people who live within Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district have been recorded making donations to her reelection campaign in 2019, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of available Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. Ocasio-Cortez outraised all other 87 freshmen representatives in the first half of 2019 in individual contributions, but the New York Democrat came in second-to-last place in terms of reported itemized contributions from the people she represents.

    An Ohio man charged after writing on Facebook that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "should be shot" told police he was "very proud" that he did it. Timothy James Ireland, 41, was indicted in Toledo for making interstate threats against AOC in addition to separate counts of being felon and fugitive in possession of a firearm, the US attorney's office in Ohio announced on Friday. Officials say a concerned citizen reached out to U.S. Capitol Police on July 23 to warn of the threatening Facebook post, which they later confirmed was written by Ireland. "She should be shot.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Friday that it was "scary" and "hurtful" how many people President Trump was able to "radicalize" in the United States. Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks after being asked by ABC7NY about the president tweeting that she and other progressive congresswomen should go back to their home countries, and whether or not that was hurtful to her. "What hurt was not the president and his actions and his words. It was the fact that he is radicalizing stadiums of people in the United States," she said. "That is what is scary and hurtful." The New Yorker added...

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's power and influence to get 'The New York Times' to update a headline about President Trump's statement on the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. Penn told FOX News host Tucker Carlson: "To actually bend after it is printed to a political faction is to cave in a way that I think will haunt them for some time to come." "The paper wanted to please a constituency and they weren't willing to stand behind their own headline and were then willing to change for that constituency," Penn said. "That...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) said in a tweet Friday that Democrats will work hard and win over Texas in 2020. The freshman lawmaker responded to a tweet from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, which read, “Time for the GOP to start fully freaking out about Texas.” Ocasio-Cortez took Hayes’s sentiments a step further in a tweet completely in Spanish, telling supporters to get ready because they are “going to work hard and win in Texas” Hayes’s tweet followed Rep. Will Hurd’s (R-TX) decision not to seek reelection, leaving the 23rd Congressional District of Texas wide open.

    It’s very interesting indeed that Ocasio-Cortez’s right-hand man, Saikat Chakrabarti, is on his way out just a week after her first meeting in months with Nancy Pelosi. And that the news is breaking late-ish on Friday afternoon, traditionally the hours when politicians dump inconvenient developments which they’d rather the public not pay any attention to. The most hated man in the Democratic caucus is headed for the exit, just half a year into his boss’s first term. I wonder if Pelosi demanded his head on a plate or if AOC offered it as a gesture of goodwill.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on ‘Ebro in the Morning’, and agreed with Ebro Darden that Israel’s government is ‘criminal.’ The hip hop jerk Ebro said there is a collection of corrupt “governments in Israel, the United States, Russia, and Saudi Arabia.” Grouping the US and Israel with Russia and Saudi Arabia is insane. He called Stephen Miller a ‘white supremacist Jew.’ That is also very extreme. These leftists are in the outer zone. Cortez agreed with everything he said like the little Bobbie doll she is. When Ebro said Israel’s actions are “very, very criminal and very very unjust,” the anti-Semitic...

On his hip-hop program "Ebro in the Morning," interviewer Ebro Darden said there was a collection of "corrupt" governments in Israel, the United States, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, "all working in concert," and referred to White House policy adviser Stephen Miller as a white supremacist. "How do you have white supremacist Jews?" he asked. "How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are...

I’m tired of moments of silence, thoughts and prayers as people continue to die every day. I’m tired of having a government so divided they can’t come together to save lives or our future.”...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday unveiled legislation that would be the first step in implementing the Green New Deal, outlining plans for addressing how environmental plans affect low-income communities. The draft bill is designed to address what the lawmakers describe as the third pillar of the Green New Deal — ensuring that no community gets left behind. Dubbed the Climate Equity Act, the legislation lays out steps for Congress and the White House to “guarantee that the policies comprising a future Green New Deal protect the health and economic wellbeing of all Americans for...
