    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...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for many things, like her exceptional wit, her impassioned tweets, her signature red lip, and her always flawless skin - and in a recently released Vogue beauty video, the freshman congresswoman revealed the secret behind the latter two. Every day like clockwork, AOC will glide on Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso because “the easiest way to look put together is with a bold lip.” Amen. When it comes to her skincare routine, the congresswoman triple loves tinted moisturizers because they’re more lightweight than regular foundation. But while the product you put on your...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday refused to condemn Black Lives Matter protesters who demanded white folks “give up their homes,” instead saying there is a need to “establish just policies and address the core issues of brutality in order for us to come together.” The Democratic socialist made her remarks Saturday during a stop at the Woodside Houses, a NYCHA housing complex in Queens, where she greeted residents and spoke to locals and reporters. “Since this is happening in Seattle, I don’t have as close of a view on what’s happening. Of course I represent New York’s 14th Congressional District,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) thinks the NYPD union endorsement of President Trump is inappropriate. “NYPD union endorsed Trump. I’m sure this is part of their neighborhood outreach plan,” she said. “Also, does anyone else see a potential problem with police unions - enforcement arms of the state with lethal weapons - promoting ‘preferred’ candidates for office or is that just me?” In his announcement Friday, union boss Pat Lynch acknowledged it was almost unheard of for the PBA to endorse for President of the United States, but said current circumstances required it. “I have 36 years on this job …...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Kamala Harris introduced a new bill in Congress on Thursday meant to combat climate change. How will this new legislation prevent the planet from heating up? By creating equal economic outcomes for all races. In the same vein as the highly criticized “Green New Deal,” the “Climate Equity Act” forwards the philosophy of environmental and climate justice, an ideology that links the issue of the “climate crisis” to the liberal “social justice” agenda. “For a year, @AOC and I have worked with communities on landmark legislation to ensure that as we fight the climate crisis,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was nominated for an Emmy for her film project “Art of the Green New Deal.” “So... while 2020 is highly unpredictable, I *definitely* did not expect to be nominated for an Emmy Award for our Green New Deal project with @theintercept, @mollycrabapple, @NaomiAKlein & others,” the New York Democrat wrote on Twitter. “Rather shocked & very grateful.” The seven-minute film, which was a collaboration with The Intercept, is narrated by Ocasio-Cortez and illustrated by Molly Crabapple. “Set a couple of decades from now, it’s a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone...

    Former President Barack Obama released his list of election candidate endorsements on Monday, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was nowhere to be seen. “I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly qualified Democrats,” tweeted Obama. “If you’re in one of their districts or states, make sure you vote for them this fall. And if you can, vote early—by mail or in person.” In the list of 118 endorsements across 17 states - including California, New York, Illinois, and Texas - Obama gave his blessing to candidates for the House, Senate, and state positions. Six of...

    The House of Representatives on Thursday voted against the passage of an amendment spearheaded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that would bar the United States military from recruiting via game streaming site Twitch. Ocasio-Cortez brought the amendment to a vote as part of the H.R. 7617 Department of Defense Appropriations Act. The House voted to block the amendment, with 292 votes against compared to 126 in support of it. The amendment came after a July 15 report in The Nation that detailed the military’s recruitment tactics on Twitch, which include unspecified gaming hardware giveaways. The Army, Navy, and Air Force each...

    **SNIP** But to believe Bowman’s ouster of Engel is a sign that the Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democratic Party is taking over would be a severe misreading of the political landscape at the congressional level - and nationally. She attracts an inordinate amount of attention for a first-term lawmaker, keeping up an active and innovative social media presence, and appearing frequently on television. It’s easy to conflate the publicity with political influence. In fact, the vast majority of Justice Democrats who have run over the past two House cycles have lost, often in humiliating fashion. Since emerging on the national...

    Joe Biden has pledged to take action on climate change that would be "impossible" for a future president to reverse should he beat President Donald Trump in the November election. The former vice president told renewable energy industry executives on a fundraising call Monday night he would put down "such a marker" on climate change it would be "impossible for the next president to turn it around." He added that the climate crisis was the "most sweeping crisis of all," adding that it had an impact on other crises facing the U.S., including the coronavirus pandemic and the related economic...

    Crime spike? What crime spike? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shrugged off New York City’s frightening rise in crime, suggesting that tough times are forcing parents into committing petty theft to feed their kids. “They feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens) said last week on a virtual town hall for constituents that was broadcast on her official Facebook page. **SNIP** The city recorded 43 shootings in the last week, up more than 300% from the same time period in 2019. Ten people were shot over a bloody July 4 weekend The progressive lawmaker counterintuitively...

    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...

    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 former television news anchor. A retired New York City police officer and high school civics teacher. An attorney who runs a mediation practice and serves as a volunteer minister. These are just a few of the candidates -- Democrats and Republicans -- who have lined up to challenge three of the most high-profile freshman House Democrats: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. It's not easy to unseat a sitting member of Congress, and the three members of the progressive "squad" have a number of built-in advantages as they run for reelection. **SNIP** But they have become high-profile targets...

    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...

    New York's primary election is just over a week away and eyes are on the state's 14th Congressional District. Two years ago a relatively unknown candidate, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, pulled off a stunning upset, and she now represents the Bronx and Queens. The first term congresswoman says she has used her spotlight to work on environmental justice through the Green New Deal, to fully fund NYCHA and fight for more health care provisions. "All of these have been profound priorities, in addition to fighting for our immigrant neighbors here that are so wonderful in their contributions as community members," Ocasio-Cortez says....

New Yorkers can cast ballots at select polling locations under a law that passed last year, when the state joined 38 others with some form of early voting.

    AOC is going AWOL for the city’s only in-person debate ahead of next week’s Democratic Party primary. First-term Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens/Bronx) plans to skip out on a face-to-face showdown with three challengers Wednesday, her office told The Post. Ironically, the Parkchester Times-sponsored debate is the same one the previous incumbent, 10-term Rep. Joseph Crowley, shirked in 2018. It was seen as a backhanded diss of his upstart opponent — and helped AOC unseat him in a shocking primary result one week later. “Ocasio-Cortez is claiming her incumbency privilege,” Parkchester Times publisher Sheikh Musa Drammeh told The Post. “But if...
