  • Richard Nixon's son-in-law says Dems' impeachment inquiry being driven by 'AOC effect'

    President Richard Nixon’s son-in-law said Monday that House Democrats are being driven by the “AOC effect," arguing that Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced significant pressure from far-left members to pursue impeachment. “Most of her conference is in majority Democratic districts and they are all scared of a primary and that’s what’s driving them in large part,” Ed Cox told “Fox & Friends." Cox said that despite Pelosi’s initial decision to pull back the impeachment push, the lawmaker chose to maintain her position in leadership by going along with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s, D-Calif., impeachment inquiry.

    Every Columbus Day, liberals insist that the story of European colonization is a simple narrative of good versus evil: horrible Europeans came upon innocent Native Americans, introducing slavery, exploitation, and oppression. A massive archaeological discovery blows one of many gaping holes in this narrative. While Europeans did indeed do horrible things, the natives weren't exactly innocent. Two hundred and fifty skeletons of children between the ages of 4 and 14 have been unearthed at Huanchaco, Peru, in what experts say is likely the world's largest child-sacrifice site. Huanchaco is a site of the Chimú culture (1200-1400), a predecessor to the...

    The centuries-old remains of more than 200 children have been discovered in Peru, according to reports. Experts say that the macabre discovery is likely the world’s largest child sacrifice site. The children, who were between the ages of 4 and 14, reportedly were sacrificed to honor the gods of the pre-Columbian Chimu culture. Experts think that the children — killed during wet weather and buried facing the sea — were sacrificed in relation to an “El Niño” event. Peruvian press agency Andina reports that archaeologists found the skeletal remains of 250 children and 40 warriors at Huanchaco, 346 miles north...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said after President Donald Trump’s tweet about former U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Republicans were “beclowning themselves” trying to defend the president. Host Chris Hayes said, “It’s not surprising the president did that.” Ocasio-Cortez said, “No, not surprising at all. I’m sure, and it certainly seemed my Republican colleagues were scrambling after he sent out those tweets trying to provide some kind of cover. I mean, it’s — they’re really beclowning themselves at this point trying to find a way to somehow preserve their careers and futures...

    Socialist New York Rep.

This is not just about something that has occurred, about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome next year," she told CNN.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Wednesday said that impeaching President Donald Trump is necessary to prevent a "disastrous outcome" in 2020. Ocasio-Cortez said on CNN's Situation Room that House Democrats need to move quickly, citing the "potential compromise of the 2020 elections," that could lead to "a potentially disastrous outcome." "This is not just about something that has occurred, this is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year," she said. Ocasio-Cortez framed her concerns as a matter of national security, stating that House Democrats need to "come together as a caucus" and use impeachment to defeat...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on senior White House aide Stephen Miller to resign after leaked emails showed he promoted stories that appeared on white nationalist websites. Some 900 emails Miller sent to Breitbart News editors between 2015 and 2016 were exposed in a report Tuesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit that monitors hate groups. The article sparked outrage among Democratic presidential candidates and politicians, including Ocasio-Cortez, who tweeted, “Stephen Miller, Trump’s architect of mass human rights abuses at the border (including child separation & detention camps w/ child fatalities) has been exposed as a bonafide white nationalist.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would be given a vital role in a Bernie Sanders administration and could even be tapped for a cabinet-level position, the 2020 presidential hopeful told ABC News on Sunday. "Look, I have said this before, let me say it again -- and I don't want [Ocasio-Cortez] to hear this, because [her] head will explode," Sen. Sanders, I-VT., said during a joint interview alongside the freshman House member. "I don't know of any person -- I've been in Congress for a few years, who in the course of less than one year -- she's been in office...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — As she took the stage here on Friday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., noted it was her “first time” in the key presidential primary state. But many of the thousands of people who came to see her campaign for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, were confident it wouldn’t be her last visit. “You’re going to be the first female president,” one woman told Ocasio-Cortez as she met with audience members on a rope line after the event. “I’m hope I’m not the first,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding that she’d like a woman president “sooner”...

    Apparently, the occasionally operating cortex kicked in yesterday, and the experience of mental activity temporarily threw Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez off her memorized talking points. She was in the midst of lecturing a crowd of Bernie-supporters, pacing around the stage with a hand-held microphone, engaging the crowd the way a fifth-grade teacher might lead along the children she is indoctrinating. But as she was building up to some sort of prepared punchline, she said, "Here's the deal" and then drew a blank. She actually used the expression "here's the deal" three times before coming up with the payoff.

    A referendum on Tuesday’s ballot in New Jersey’s northernmost county asked whether voters wanted local officials to cooperate with federal immigration agents. It passed by a lopsided 2-to-1 margin. Nearly 200 miles away, along the state’s southern swath, a directive by the state attorney general that in part bars county sheriff officers from doing the work of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents has led two counties to file federal lawsuits. A third county has threatened legal action. The state attorney general’s rule not only precipitated the lawsuits, but also became a key election issue, generating support for Republican candidates who...

    Freshman Rep. Katie Hill resigned Thursday in the wake of multiple controversies, including engaging in at least one sexual relationship with a campaign staff member. Conservative website Red State published intimate photos of the California Democrat on Oct. 18 after they were leaked to the site, sparking a debate about inappropriate relationships and “revenge porn.” Hill should not have engaged in a relationship with a subordinate while holding public office, and thus should shoulder the blame for that choice. Nonetheless, there’s little the public can do about her personal choices other than to call for her resignation. There may be...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Saturday gave her backing to a New York City anti-police protest, in which demonstrators jumped subway turnstiles and yelled anti-cop slogans to protest a crackdown on fare evasion and allegations of police brutality. “Ending mass incarceration means challenging a system that jails the poor to free the rich,” the left-wing freshman congresswoman tweeted, retweeting a video of protesters jumping subway turnstiles in Brooklyn Friday night. "Arresting people who can’t afford a $2.75 fare makes no one safer and destabilizes our community." "New Yorkers know that, they’re not having it, and they’re standing up for each...

    The Fatah movement headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas emphasizes its continued adherence to the "national struggle" as a means to counter all the "colonialist" plans which they believe seek to undermine the existence of the "Palestinian people" and their cause. Such "colonialist" plans range from the Balfour Declaration to US President Donald Trump's peace plan. On the occasion of the approaching 102nd anniversary of the statement by former British Foreign Minister Arthur Balfour in support of the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people, the Fatah movement called the Balfour Declaration a "historic crime" against humanity...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says fellow freshman Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.), who is resigning her seat citing a series of explicit photographs published in conservative outlets, was the victim of a "major crime" that could deter other young women from running for office. Hill is the subject of an ethics investigation into allegations of an affair with a staffer in her congressional office, but she specifically cited the photographs, the release of which she attributes to her estranged husband, in her resignation announcement. She has denied the affair but conceded a relationship with a campaign staffer, which does not violate...

Talk about a haunted House…” the Fox Nation host continued in the post, in which she also included the hashtag “SocialismKills.”
