    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congresswoman from New York, flashed a double white-power symbol during a Zoom conference about New York City’s crime uptick. Perhaps it was just an “OK” sign or even just a mindless gesture, but that doesn’t matter these days. During the Zoom video, which The Hill uploaded to its YouTube channel Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez spoke to constituents and answered press questions about rising crime rates in the Big Apple. She pointed to the Wuhan virus, financial instability, and police brutality as reasons for the rise in crime, failing to mention anything about the violent riots that swept the...

    A California man is suing Twitter and two progressive congresswomen in connection with President Donald Trump's suspension from the social media platform, citing "overbearing pain and suffering." In the complaint filed in a U.S. District Court in California on Tuesday, Erik Estavillo argued that he and every "follower that was, without a doubt, emotionally and mentally damaged as a result of the Presidents' ban" is entitled to $88.7 million each. Estavillo, who is representing himself, is also seeking the reinstatement of Trump's account and a retaliatory Twitter ban on Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, who, he argues, promote "Eastern...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still won't say if she plans to launch a bid against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer when he runs for reelection as New York senator in 2022 – claiming she is 'indecisive' and still trying to figure out her role within the Democratic Party and Washington politics. 'I'm a no bulls**t kind of person,' Ocasio-Cortez told Punchbowl News in a Q&A published Monday morning. 'I'm not playing coy or anything like that,' she said in reference to dodging questions on potentially primarying Schumer, a three-term senator who served as a U.S. representative from New York for 18 years...

    Business Insider via MSN ^ | 12/19/20 | Kevin Shalvey
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday said Amazon's jobs are a "scam" because they're not creating financial security for workers. "A 'job' that leaves you homeless & on food stamps isn't a job. It's a scam," she said on Twitter. Ocasio-Cortez referenced a Bloomberg News report detailing how many Amazon warehouse workers struggle to pay bills, with as many as 4,000 on food stamps. The report said Amazon has turned logistics work from a professional career option to "entry-level" work for many. As Amazon's workforce has soared during the pandemic, safety conditions in its warehouses have failed to keep pace, according...

    Former President Barack Obama called on the Democratic National Committee to give a bigger platform to progressives as they continue to butt heads with the party's centrist members. "One thing I will say about the Democratic Party is that promoting young people is really important. We stick so long with the same old folks and don't make room for new voices," Obama said in an interview with Peter Hamby on Snapchat's Good Luck America. Obama also acknowledge the party's controversial decision to allot Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez only 60 seconds at this summer's national convention, while handing out significantly more television...

    House Democrats returned to Washington this week licking their wounds after a demoralizing election performance and seeking ways to cool simmering internal tensions heading into the next Congress. After predicting big gains to pad their majority, the party suffered the loss of at least 10 sitting members, with several more expected, and failed to knock off even a single Republican incumbent - something that was virtually unthinkable heading into Nov. 3. The disappointing results have sparked an internal reckoning, one that has featured moderates blaming liberals for botching the party’s message; liberals pushing back in defense of efforts to energize...

    ALEXANDRIA Ocasio-Cortez has asked her fans for their 'dream" Joe Biden cabinet - and Bernie Sanders, Ilhan Omar and Stacey Abrams all made the cut. On Monday evening, the representative asked her 10million Twitter followers who their "dream cabinet" was, dubbing it a "fantasy sports: presidential admin edition." Included in the responses were previous presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders as head of the party and Ilhan Omar as Secretary of State. People were divided on Stacey Abrams, with some users showing their support for the politician, but others saying "anyone except" her. One user insisted that a cabinet should be completely...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed 'Republican narratives' for tearing Democrats apart as she revealed over the weekend she considered not running for reelection due to in-house fighting between the progressive and establishment arms of the Party.When asked by The New York Times if she would consider running for the Senate if Joe Biden's administration ended up being too 'hostile' toward progressive causes, Ocasio-Cortez said, 'I genuinely don't know. I don't even know if I want to be in politics.'

    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...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says she's thinking about starting a family and has considered freezing her eggs. "I’m sitting here, I’m like, Do I freeze my eggs? Can I afford to do that?” the New York Democrat told Vanity Fair with a laugh in a cover story for the magazine's December issue, published Wednesday. “My orthodontist was telling me about how she was doing IVF, and I’m, like, asking her what her experience is like," Ocasio-Cortez said. The average cost of in vitro fertilization per cycle is between $12,000 and $17,000, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Freezing...

Voters had been waiting in line for several hours when the congresswoman showed up. 'There is no place in the United States of America where two-, three-, four-hour waits to vote is acceptable,' the Democrat said outside the site in Parkchester.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that she believes it's "extremely important" that Joe Biden offer Sen. Bernie Sanders and other progressive leaders Cabinet positions if he's elected president. The big picture: Ocasio-Cortez was pressed repeatedly on policy differences between her and the more moderate Biden, including her opposition to fracking and support for Medicare for All. She responded that it would be a "privilege" and a "luxury" to be able to lobby a Biden administration on progressive issues, insisting that the focus right now should be on winning the White House. What she's...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday helped host an online event aimed at encouraging young people to vote that was organized by an activist who said last year that “America deserved 9/11.” The New York Democrat congresswoman, 31, spoke at the beginning of the virtual event, which was streamed on Twitch, and announced an “amazing lineup” of gamers to play “Among Us,” a newly popular video game. Hasan Piker, a vlogger who last year came under fire for saying “America deserved 9/11,” organized the event, which featured popular Twitch streamers along with Ocasio-Cortez and fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who herself has...

    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...

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 …...
