    Democratic California political leaders have remained silent on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comment appearing to doubt the existence of smash-and-grab robberies. "We have to talk about specifics because, for example, we’re actually seeing a lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out," Ocasio-Cortez told The Washington Times in an interview last week. "I believe it’s a Walgreens in California cited it, but the data didn’t back it up." Fox News reached out to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s press team, Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s communication’s director, Sen. Alex Padilla’s press secretary, as well as Mayor London Breed’s and Mayor...

  • AOC insists the Democrats' 'woke problem' is made up by Republicans and critics wanting party to run away from racial justice and voting rights

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats' so-called 'woke problem' was 'made up' to try and push the left away from fighting for racial injustice and election reform, which she claims could help them win. 'One dangerous aspect of thinking there's a 'woke problem' is that Dem chances for re-election or majorities in House, Senate, & WH rely on the racial justice issue of voting rights,' the New York representative tweeted Sunday evening. She added: 'Dems distancing from racial justice makes protection of voting rights less likely, ensuring losses.' Republicans and establishment Democrats claimed that the party's embracing a more progressive agenda and...

    The incumbent Democratic mayor of Buffalo, running as a write-in candidate, declared victory Tuesday night as he held a nearly 20-point lead over his Democratic Party opponent. India Walton, a socialist backed by many high-profile progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, refused to concede to Mayor Byron Brown in the highly publicized contest until her campaign sees “all the votes,” her spokesman Jesse Myerson told The Post via text. Brown, 63, who lost to Walton in the June Democratic primary, claimed what would be a stunning victory in a speech to supporters from his campaign headquarters shortly after 11 p.m. “Today’s election,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday said her supporters raised more than $185,000 for organizations in Texas supporting reproductive rights. The fundraising effort came after the Supreme Court in a single-paragraph decision said it wouldn't block a restrictive abortion law in Texas. The decision led to an uptick in "rage giving," MarketWatch reported. One organization, the Texas Equal Access Fund, received about $200,000 in donations in the days following the decision, the report said. "Let this be your sign," Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. "Find an organizing community, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. It feels better to be in...

    A Polish brewery has sparked outrage with a new beer called White IPA Matters and an advert featuring a black barman drinking it at a US-themed bar. The Mentzen brewery, owned by right-wing politician Slawomir Mentzen, has been flooded with complaints by people claiming the commercial is racist. It features a black barman cleaning glasses with the camera cutting to symbols of America's Deep South, including a Confederate flag. The camera cuts back to the barman before a customer slides him a bottle of the White IPA - a light-tasting ale generally marketed at people who don't like the taste...

    While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents part of the Bronx and Queens, she's not really a New Yorker. Although born in the Bronx, the socialist congresswoman was brought up in non-diverse, chi-chi Yorktown Heights (median household income: $137,580) and attended pricy Boston University (annual tuition: $58,560). Her policies has been disastrous for her constituents, whether on a local or national scale. Now she has a challenger. Tina Forte, a Bronx native, an athlete, a passionate MAGA-supporter and patriot, and a social influencer with a sizable following has announced her candidacy and has a knock-yer-socks-off introductory campaign video. What Forte has is grit,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Friday warned what to expect from Donald Trump’s most ardent acolytes - suggesting that even some of the president’s staunchest supporters may now try to pivot away from him. As the 2020 election remained in the balance, but with Democratic nominee Joe Biden on the cusp of victory, Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter if anyone was “archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future,” added the New York lawmaker, who this week won reelection...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should “radicalize” Democrats ahead of November’s election. "Let this moment radicalize you," the freshman representative said in a Friday night Instagram Live video. “Let this moment really put everything into stark focus because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives. And if anything, tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before.” Ocasio-Cortez urged viewers to check and update their voter registration and vote for Joe Biden despite progressive disagreements with his policy platform. “Voting for Joe Biden is...

    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on the rich - just not pay her own. The Democratic socialist congresswoman from The Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill leftover from a failed business venture. AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint The Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012. As the Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes...

    New York lawmakers have some to the defense of congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez following a report which claims that her fellow democrats are avoiding her while they plan to combat the coronavirus. The report from the New York Post claims that Cortez's peers are ignoring her over fears she will overshadow the work they are doing to combat the virus in an area with one of the highest infection rates in the entire world. The report, based on unnamed sources, claims that Ocasio-Cortez "simply rubs many of her fellow New York Democrats the wrong way." Ocasio-Cortez has become one the most...

    **SNIP** Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared a video of a drag queen roundtable that she says will "push society forward." "Electoralism has limits," she wrote. "Elected officials often don’t lead our most impactful societal changes, they follow them. The heroes who lead true change are the activists, artists, organizers & others who educate + push society forward." "People think Congress and government is all about leading people, but ultimately, a lot of our politics is about following the public will. The people who change the way people think are artists and drag queens, and let's not forget who threw that first...

    In videos posted Thursday night, far-left U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar push for a seemingly socialist overhaul of the U.S. government in reaction to the coronavirus outbreak. The first-term progressive Democratic congresswomen, from New York and Minnesota, respectively, call for the removal of a “profit motive” from lawmakers’ decisions and the “nationalization” of the nation’s health care system. They and other Democrats have been critical of President Trump’s decision to allow the governors and legislatures of the nation’s 50 states, as well as U.S. territories, to largely set their own strategies for reacting to the virus - which...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Republican challenger, Dalia al Aqidi, criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for injecting race into the coronavirus pandemic discussion. “COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities,” Ocasio-Cortez, who is a member of "the Squad" along with Omar, said on Twitter. “Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.” “Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations," she added. Al Aqidi responded by asking for evidence of Ocasio-Cortez’s claim and accusing the New York congresswoman of trying to divide the country. “Where is...
