    US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has insisted that police ensure the safety of Ghislaine Maxwell in light of the suicide of Jeffery Epstein last year. **SNIP** “Maxwell’s arrest is a significant development,” AOC tweeted. “I hope the SDNY and all relevant parties have conducted an extensive review of the failures of Epstein’s custody to ensure Maxwell’s safety as this case bears out.” **SNIP** With Ms Maxwell being charged just over a month from the anniversary of Epstein’s 10 August death, Rep Ocasio-Cortez urged police not to make the same mistakes this time around and protect her from harm to ensure that...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NY City Council have reached an agreement to cut $1 billion from the NYPD budget next year but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it isn’t enough.The mayor appears to have come up with a plan that will shift a big portion of that $1 billion in funding to another city agency without actually cutting anything. But the remainder of the cuts still mean less overtime and that the city won’t be hiring nearly 1,200 new officers: The mayor and the City Council agreed on Monday to reach that $1 billion in cuts by, among...
  • $1.5B in NYPD cuts not enough for AOC: ‘Defunding police means defunding police’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday the proposed $1.5 billion NYPD budget slash didn’t go far enough. “Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the self-described Democratic Socialist said in a press release about the budget deal between the City Council and Mayor de Blasio. “It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending...

    Four House Democrats have written to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling on the United States to cut assistance to Israel should it proceed to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, JTA reported on Monday. The letter was initiated by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Betty McCollum of Minnesota. The letter to Pompeo is circulating among Democrats in a bid to add signatures. “Should the Israeli government move forward with the planned annexation with this administration’s acquiescence, we will work to ensure non-recognition as well as pursue conditions on...

    CLAIM: A May 20 tweet sent and later deleted by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat representing New York, argues that governors should keep businesses closed until after the presidential election because economic recovery will help get President Donald Trump re-elected. AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The tweet was fabricated. It does not appear in archived versions of Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter feed or in databases that track deleted tweets by politicians. The congresswoman’s office also confirmed the tweet is not real.

Eliot Engel, the 73-year-old chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and a member of Congress since 1989. . . . “I’m a Black man raised by a single mother in a housing project,” Bowman tweeted on Wednesday. “That story doesn’t usually end in Congress.

    Good news, sorta. Looks like we’ll have AOC to kick around for another two years. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez buried her Democratic primary challenger Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC reporter who tried to unseat the frosh Representative after her “fluke” election in 2018. After winning 72.6% of the vote in NY-14, Ocasio-Cortez wants her props for a “mandate”: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said her reported results of about 70% of the vote, which put her far ahead of challenger Michelle Caruso-Cabrera in the Democratic primary election, would be a ‘transformative’ mandate— Reuters (@Reuters) June 24, 2020 When I won in...

In New York, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, successfully defended her seat for the first time, dispatching a number of challengers, including former CNBC journalist Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

    I’m not a big fan of accusing people of cultural appropriation. If you want to eat a taco on Cinco de Mayo, have fun. If you like orange chicken, by all means, let’s do this thing. But there’s a difference between casual partaking of other cultures, which is one of the awesome things about America, and trying to appropriate the lived struggles of oppressed people for political and personal gain. That’s what makes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez so insidious. Over and over, usually through the “people of color” canard, she’s tried to equalize her upper crust, pampered upbringing with those who...

    A significant number of teenagers and K-pop fans used China-owned social media platform TikTok to coordinate placing fake ticket reservations for President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa, drawing support from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the blue-check Twitter brigade. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cheered on the teens who deliberately interfered in a presidential campaign, by tweeting: "Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID Shout out to Zoomers....

    President Trump urged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to run against the state’s longtime Sen. Chuck Schumer in the 2022 primary in November, saying that she would be a “big improvement” and that she would likely win. Schumer, the Senate minority leader, has been a vocal critic of the president, but so has Ocasio-Cortez, who faces her own primary challenger this year for her House seat. Critics of the president say Trump's call on Ocasio-Cortez to run is simply an attempt to divide the party. Trump retweeted a report from the Washington Times that said liberals “are kicking around the idea”...

    Some of Wall Street's most prominent names have donated thousands of dollars to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary in New York, data from the FEC shows. Federal Election Commission data shows that donors including Goldman Sachs' CEO David Solomon, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, and hedge fund behemoth Paul Tudor Jones have given to the campaign of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC reporter, is going up against Ocasio-Cortez to secure the Democratic nomination for New York's 14th congressional district on June 23. **SNIP** Caruso-Cabrera has raised just over $2 million so far, while Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has received more...

    (Reuters) - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning upset over a member of the Democratic congressional leadership in 2018 made her a household name and inspired similar insurgent campaigns around the United States. Now the democratic socialist from New York City, best known by her initials AOC, must survive her own challenge from within the party in a June 23 primary election. Two other members of "the Squad" – four women of color who, in their first terms, have become the face of the U.S. House of Representatives' liberal wing – also face primary challengers. Like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan's Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota's Ilhan...

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany condemned the “defund the police” movement during a press conference on Monday. In doing so, she named prominent Democratic congresswoman who want to defund the police. Among them, she named Congresswoman and “Biden advisor” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). This prompted outrage from AOC, who accused McEnany of betraying a racist impulse. McEnany “wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman,” AOC tweeted. The congresswoman went...
