    We need to rename Biden's proposed "American Family Plan". I present the perfect name below.Biden Is No ModeratePresident Joe Biden proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not a moderate.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said President Joe Biden's first 100 days 'have been impressive' and 'exceeded' the expectations of Democrat progressives. The New York congresswoman said during a virtual town hall meeting: 'The Biden administration and President Biden have definitely exceeded expectations that progressives had. 'I'll be frank, I think a lot of us expected a much more conservative administration.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and other members of the progressive "Squad" spent thousands of dollars on private security despite calling on cities to defund police departments, Federal Election Commission filings show. The group of progressive, Democratic congresswomen including Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Cori Bush of Missouri, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan have voiced their support for measures to reduce police spending and allocate those funds toward other community services in an effort to curb police violence. Tlaib's filings do not show any security-related spending, though the other four congresswomen have spent tens...

    With Representative Ocasio-Cortez reintroducing her Green New Deal bill and Joe Biden pledging to halve carbon emissions in the U.S. in less than 10 years, and after the “Climate Summit” goes virtual on April 22, America is going to be so green we’ll be mistaken for an artichoke. There’s no time to lose. The earth is doomed unless we stop poisoning our atmosphere with the exhalation of so many politicians and world leaders. If they stopped and held their breath for a day or two, we’d be carbon neutral in a jiffy. It’s too bad that’s not a real solution,...

    Calling for a "bigger and bolder" infrastructure and jobs plan from President Biden, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the federal dollars in the $2 trillion proposal don't match the "vision" the president has put forward on climate change. "There are a lot of areas that demand a lot of expansion," the New York Democrat said in an interview after reintroducing the Green New Deal on Tuesday. "The problem," said Ocasio-Cortez is that while "the aims of this infrastructure bill are great," the "dollars that they put in don't match the vision they have advanced. "So if they want to actually advance...

    Breitbart ^ | 18April | J Pollack
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has backed Democrats’ effort to pack the Supreme Court by adding four new seats that would be filled by President Joe Biden, arguing the courts should not be allowed to overturn laws passed by Congress. The Washington Times reported: “I do think we should be expanding the court,” she told reporters. The New York Democrat, part of the progressive “Squad” collective on Capitol Hill, reasoned the justices overturning laws is part of the problem with the 6-3 conservative majority. “The idea that nine people, that a nine-person court, can overturn laws that … hundreds and thousands...

    A new book, based on interviews with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claims she mocked rising liberal star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and was furious at The Squad. Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power, written by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page, features ten interviews with Pelosi as well as interviews with over 150 friends, family members, and politicians. Page recalled a July 2019 interview with the Speaker, according a preview of the book in Axios, where she said: 'Pelosi unloads on the Squad, at one point adopting a child-like voice when discussing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.'

    Ocasio-Cortez introduced a total of 21 bills that the center defined as "substantive" — but that is where the story ends. Her legislation received no action in committees, no floor votes, and none ever became law, according to the center, which takes its data from Congress.gov.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the worsening immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border on imperialism, climate change, trade policy, and the prison system. Ocasio-Cortez sounded off on the border crisis Tuesday on Instagram. The New York Democrat did not explicitly blame President Joe Biden for the surge of illegal migrants crossing the U.S. border, though migrants themselves cite the president and his policies as primary factors in their decision to travel to the U.S. “So let’s talk about this because so much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation, about immigration is driven by people who could...

    When a Democrat resorts to blaming “cancel culture,” the writing is well and truly on the wall. A struggling Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) held a press conference on Friday after New York Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler, both Democrats, added their voices to a rising chorus of 117 state legislators demanding the governor resign amid sexual assault allegations and the COVID-19 nursing home scandal. Cuomo again denied the allegations and condemned what he described as a “reckless” rush to conclusions.“Politicians who don’t know a single fact but yet form a conclusion and an opinion are in my opinion reckless...

    New York Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler on Friday joined the chorus of Democrats calling for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct. "This week, the second sexual assault allegation and the sixth harassment allegation was leveled against Governor Cuomo. The fact that this latest report was so recent is alarming, and it raises concerns about the present safety and well-being of the administration’s staff. These allegations have all been consistent and highly-detailed, and there are also credible media reports substantiating their accounts," Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., said in a statement....
  • Pelosi facing dissent, AOC ire on ‘failure’ $1.9T COVID aid bill

    NY Post ^ | 3/06/21 | Mary Kay Linge
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing dissent in her caucus ahead of Tuesday’s vote to confirm the passage of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. With the Democrats’ slim 221-211 House advantage, Pelosi can afford no more than four defections in the vote scheduled for Tuesday. But two members of her caucus, Reps. Marcia Fudge of Ohio and Deb Haaland of New Mexico, could be confirmed to Biden administration posts as soon as Wednesday. That could further amplify gripes coming from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other left-leaning House comrades after some of their major initiatives were stripped out of the...

    Remember how media and folks on the left would attack President Donald Trump over putting kids in “cages” even though those cages (large initial holding areas after illegal aliens are picked up) were built under Barack Obama and Joe Biden? This despite the fact that Trump actually improved the situation by having fewer illegal aliens coming in and discouraging illegal entry. Not to mention actually checking who the kids were ultimately turned over to so they weren’t turned over to human traffickers like they were under Obama.But now it’s ramping up again because of Joe Biden’s encouragement about not deporting...

    There are photo-ops, and then there are photo-ops. For the liberal media, the bad ones are those staged by Republicans. The good ones are those orchestrated by Democrats! Take Mika Brzezinski on today's Morning Joe, tearing into Ted Cruz for posting photos of himself handing out water to victims of the Texas freeze and power-and-water outages. This coming after what Cruz has admitted was a mistake in traveling to Cancun during the crisis. Of course, Mika didn't criticize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for traveling from New York to Texas to be seen handing out supplies. AOC no doubt was unaware that cameras...

    On Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took a swipe at Texas political leaders, propounding that the suffering Texans are experiencing because of the freezing cold and concomitant power outages could have been addressed by her “Green New Deal.” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal. Weak on sweeping next-gen public infrastructure investments, little focus on equity so communities are left behind, climate deniers in leadership so they don’t long prep for disaster. We need to help people *now.* Long-term we must realize these are the consequences of...
