    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to Israel at the end of the month to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Kushner has been leading President Donald Trump's effort to develop a peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians. After proposing a $60 billion aid package for the region last summer, he has yet to unveil a proposed political plan that gets at the thorniest issues in the decades-old conflict, with Netanyahu struggling to form a governing coalition. The official, speaking on condition...

    Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, three of the most influential voices among young progressive liberals, will all reportedly endorse Senator Bernie Sanders in his 2020 bid for presidency. In an article published on Tuesday evening, The Washington Post reported that two unnamed sources with knowledge of the plan said Ocasio-Cortez, 30, will join Sanders, 78, at a campaign rally on Saturday to announce the surprise endorsement. During the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders revealed that a "special guest" would join him in New York. "We're looking forward to Saturday," Corbin Trent, a spokesperson for...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president and appear with him at a rally on Saturday, according to two people with knowledge of her plans.

Before Tuesdays Democratic debate, he had been sidelined from the campaign trail for two weeks by a heart attack. Were looking forward to Saturday, said Corbin...

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies." Affleck concluded his attack on his...

    It used to be that American politicians abided by a code of conduct when visiting other countries that included leaving politics at the waters edge. That meant politicians didnt go overseas and bash the president or America to foreign audiences. That was then this is now. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez traveled to Copenhagen last weekend. The freshman congresswoman from New York was invited to speak during the C40 World Mayors Summit. The summit brought together mayors from around the world to discuss climate change. Apparently AOC is an internationally recognized expert on the subject now. Since she was in town anyway,...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigans far left of left Democratic congresswoman, called for a complete transformation of Americas government a political revolution and economic overhaul to change the capitalistic system and, as she framed it, to put the people, not the corporations, back in power. This is not simply a difference of political differences; a Democrat view versus a Republican view. This is treasonous. Its treason wrapped in a social justice ribbon. Tlaib is a member of the U.S. Congress, bound by oath of office to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Yet this is...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) revealed in a new interview that House Democrats have discussed jailing allies of the president who do not comply with congressional subpoenas, an escalation of the House's efforts to force White House compliance with an impeachment inquiry. Tlaib told Deadline Detroit that such an action, known as inherent contempt, would be "uncharted territory" for Congress but added that "serious discussions" about taking the step have occurred within the Democratic caucus. There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like... if we did have to force someone through a court order to come...

    Far-left Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) told constituents on Tuesday that her Democrat colleagues are looking into how to arrest White House officials who refuse to comply with subpoenas as part of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Speaking to her constituents at a town hall in her hometown of Detriot, Tlaib said Democrats are puzzled about how to arrest Cabinet secretaries, telling voters in a video captured by America Rising PAC that they could be taken into custody if Congress votes to hold them in contempt.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) has promoted at least four racially charged hoaxes or debunked stories on Twitter in 2019 and failed to issue statements retracting or correcting her comments. The most recent example: the case of Amari Allen, a black 12-year-old girl in Virginia who claimed three white boys in her class pinned her down and cut off her dreadlocks. Allen has since recanted the story, but Tlaib has not issued a correction or deleted her tweet praising Allen as "courageous & strong" and having a "power that threatens their core."

    How much is too much to blow on a new do? Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got the $260 cut and color heard round the world, reactions have been mixed. Detractors accuse her of champagne socialism, while others argue the price tag is within reason for a public figure and a New Yorker at that. I dont think its outlandish, megastylist Scott Buchanan tells The Post. Prices at his five NYC-area Scott J salons start at $75 for a cut and $90 for color, with lowlights such as the ones AOC received starting at $160. He also notes that...

Cabrera filed last week with the Federal Election Commission to run for the seat in New York's 14th District, which includes parts of the Bronx and Queens. Cabrera has represented the Bronx in New York's City Council since 2010, his campaign website notes. Politico reported that he officially began his campaign on Thursday.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended on Thursday her pricey haircut, claiming the 'right-wing' is 'mad' she looks good while promoting Democratic socialism. The 29-year-old progressive congresswoman received a $260 haircut and dye last month, the Washington Times revealed in a Wednesday article that criticized the lawmaker for 'preaching socialism while living the life of the privileged.' '40 million Americans live in poverty under today's extreme inequality, yet the right-wing want you to blame Democratic socialism for their own moral failures,' Ocasio-Cortez posted to her Twitter a day after the report circulated. 'Our policies, like Medicare for All, advance prosperity for working people....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked President Donald Trumps proposal to withdraw remaining U.S. troops from Syria, tweeting Tuesday that a pullout could have catastrophic consequences. Ocasio-Cortezs stance is a complete reversal of her earlier position on the war in Syria and other endless wars overseas. She ran in 2018 on a pledge to end the war in Syria and elsewhere: Alexandria believes that we must end the forever war by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world, her 2018 campaign website said:

    Its getting harder and harder to take Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seriously. She may be extremely popular on social media to radical progressives, keyboard social justice warriors, and left-wing bot accounts, but shes losing her edge when it comes to promoting extreme ideas. Other radicals have been stealing her thunder, so her natural response is one of the most predictable weve seen in DC in recent years. She doubled down on crazy ideas. Her latest scheme was to attempt to make a logical argument for abolishing prisons by highlighting anecdotal incidents that represent a tiny portion of the prison population. Then,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., defended her call for potential "prison abolition" as part of broader restructuring of the criminal justice system, in a series of tweets Monday. "Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery," Ocasio-Cortez wrote in reaction to a tweet from comedian Chelsea Handler. "To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country." The Democrat recalled a conversation she had with a woman who was "thrown into...
