    Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), two of Congress’ most vocal proponents for aggressive climate action, on Monday called for President Biden to establish a Civilian Climate Corps. The CCC had been a key element in early versions of the Build Back Better Act, the sweeping environmental and infrastructure bill. It was not ultimately included in the slimmed down Inflation Reduction Act, which was nonetheless the largest climate bill in U.S. history. Biden was a vocal backer of the Climate Corps early in his presidency, comparing it to the Civilian Conservation Corps introduced during the presidency of...

    A delegation of “progressive” Democrats led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) met with Colombian radical leftist President Gustavo Petro on Monday on the last leg of a tour of friendly socialist governments in Latin America. During the encounter, Petro proposed to build an “alliance for life and nature” with the group and a “change of the economic system” to overcome “climate change.” Colombia was the last stop on the Democrat delegation’s weeklong Latin American tour sponsored by the Washington-based Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) think tank. The lawmakers also visited Brazil and Chile, where they held meetings with...

    Progressive firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez carried thousands of dollars in student loan debt last year, new financial disclosures show. During that time, the Bronx and Queens congresswoman was pining for mass student loan cancellation, publicly urging the the Biden administration to use unconstitutional executive action to accomplish it. “I’m 32 years old now,” Ocasio-Cortez complained on the House floor in December 2021. “I have over $17,000 in student loan debt, and I didn’t go to graduate school because I knew that getting another degree would drown me in debt that I would never be able to surpass. This is unacceptable.”...

    Progressive Twitter users blasted "Squad" member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., this week, after she endorsed President Joe Biden’s re-election bid. Leftists on the platform accused the lawmaker of selling out her progressive and anti-war values with her decision to support the second presidential term of the Democratic Party leader who recently just approved of providing controversial cluster bombs for Ukraine’s war effort. Critics accused the Congresswoman of "maliciously" selling out working class voters with the endorsement. Ocasio-Cortez officially endorsed Biden during the Thursday episode of "Pod Save America." When asked by the host if she would endorse Biden in a...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was “profoundly disrespectful” when disagreeing with fellow Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. Anchor Dana Bash said, “Thomas wrote, ‘Justice Jackson uses her broad observations about statistical relationships between race and select measures of health, wealth, and well-being to label all blacks as victims. Her desire to do so is unfathomable to me. It is an insult to individual achievement and cancerous to young minds seeking to push though barriers. Their race is not to blame for everything good or bad that happens in...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Sunday warned of an “authoritarian expansion of power” by the Supreme Court after it released several controversial opinions in it’s last week of the term. “The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, then we will start to see an undemocratic and, frankly, dangerous authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court,” Ocasio-Cortez said on CNN’s “State of the Union.’

    One of the greatest betrayals in our history happened while America slept.. When Biden met with Lula da Silva, the founder of the Marxist Brazil’s Workers’ Party and a convicted criminal, it was a victory lap for both socialists. Lula da Silva, Brazil’s former leader, had survived his bribery conviction and rigged an election that overthrew Jair Bolsonaro: his conservative patriotic predecessor. Biden had survived his own trial by fire during the midterms which locked down the 2024 Democrat nomination. Lula also met with fellow Marxists: Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Biden and Lula talked of “democracy” and “fighting...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Inside” that Fox News host Tucker Carlson and others on the network are “very clearly” inciting violence. Psaki said, “This week, Fox News settled their defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million, a lot of money. It is now the largest defamation settlement in history. Do you think Dominion’s lawyers made a mistake not requiring Fox to acknowledge on air that it lied to its viewers?”

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Inside” that the Republican Party is attempting to “roll back” the civil liberties of women and LGBTQ Americans. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think we are in a extremely serious moment. I believe that the Republican Party is not starting at Roe. They will not stop at Roe. They will not stop at women’s rights.” She added, “I believe what we are seeing is a concerted roll back of civil liberties in general. Our right to privacy, our right to bodily autonomy, all right to marry whomever we wish to marry, all of...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) are pressing some of the largest depositors at the failed Silicon Valley Bank to reveal the nature of their relationship with the firm that collapsed last month. Warren and Ocasio-Cortez, two of the most progressive lawmakers in Congress, sent letters to 14 of the bank’s largest depositors, raising concerns about the relationship between the failed bank and some of the largest venture capital firms that invested in it. The fall of Silicon Valley Bank marked one of the largest bank failures in U.S. history and sent shockwaves through the global banking...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the site of the devastating train derailment in Ohio is a “potential crime scene,” blasting House Republicans for not holding a hearing on the incident. “This committee needs to hold a hearing on the derailment in East Palestine,” the New York Democrat said during a House Oversight and Accountability hearing Thursday, as the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee grilled the CEO of Norfolk Southern. “This is not just a disaster site. It is a potential crime scene.” The federal government continues to deal with the fallout of the derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently commented on the viral clip of her speaking with Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., during the extended vote to install Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as Speaker of the House. The congresswoman admitted to CNN anchor John Berman that the conversation between her and Gosar revealed their "alignment" on not wanting McCarthy to have the leadership role, though she declared she finds it "uncomfortable" serving with Gosar, and other MAGA-identifying members of Congress because they engage in "stochastic terrorism" against her.

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump will be the Republican 2024 presidential nominee or he will “burn down” anyone who is. Referencing House Republicans voting for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think Speaker McCarthy gets a fundraising boom. I think he gets potentially currying favor with either Trump and his base, saying I delivered on these promises. I’m a good soldier to the Trumpian political base. I am really letting the world know that the House Republican Party is now...

    After two years under the Biden administration and President Biden touting his own economic accomplishments, most Americans are still living paycheck-to-paycheck. In a tweet on Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested Republicans were to blame for Congress failing to raise the minimum wage last year — despite Democrats having a majority in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. "60% of workers report living paycheck-to-paycheck," the Republican Party tweeted. AOC responded: "And yet y’all still voted against raising the minimum wage." While her tweet was likely intended to be a swipe at Republicans, Twitter Fact-Check jumped into the conversation to...

    Hakeem Jeffries seems poised to replace Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats. A Black political moderate, the Brooklyn congressman is often likened to Barack Obama. Even-tempered, he is known to “play” with most of the children in Washington. And at 52, he represents generational change from the 82-year-old Pelosi. Who among Democrats would have a problem with him? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would have a problem. She also has problems with President Joe Biden and, frankly, the mainstream Democratic Party off which she feeds. A preening socialist princess, she has done much to entertain Fox News and cost the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — After a heroic protest at the Supreme Court, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent the better part of three hours sitting in an invisible police car with her wrists bound by invisible handcuffs, waiting to be taken to an invisible jail. "After being threatened with an invisible gun, I was thrown on the ground by invisible police!" shouted Ocasio-Cortez as she flipped her hair for the camera. "They've kept me stuffed in this invisible squad car for hours, the fascists! When I get out of the invisible slammer, I'm going to make them pay - every last invisible one...

    Former New York Gov. David Paterson dismissed US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s influence as a “phantom of the media” after left-wing candidates endorsed by the socialist firebrand suffered brutal losses in last week’s primaries. “AOC are just three letters in the alphabet,” the 68-year-old Democrat said in an interview on WABC radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” aired Sunday. Paterson was asked by host John Catsimatidis about the Tuesday primary results in which the majority of left-wing state Assembly contenders were unsuccessful in their efforts to expand their presence in Albany by ousting more moderate Democrats. Asked if the losses represented “the rise...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called the recent actions of New York City Council speaker Adrienne Adams “movie-villain type of decisionmaking” in a social media post on Tuesday. Ocasio-Cortez posted an Instagram story to discuss “what it actually looks like when politics gets dirty,” accusing the speaker of taking funding away from children’s after-school programs. “The mayor and the city council speaker decided that they wanted their budget right now. The budget had absolutely unconscionable cuts to education, housing services and a lot more,” Ocasio-Cortez explained. “How do you actually get that? Well, you create a psychological environment and a political...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Saturday her connection to her "indigenous heritage" was awakened while protesting the Dakota Access pipeline with Native American tribes at Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Responding to a comment on Instagram, Ocasio-Cortez said she wanted to connect more with the ancestral roots of the Taíno, an indigenous people group of the Caribbean, and that American Indian tribes welcomed her as family. "One of the things that first started awakening and connecting me in a deep to my indigenous heritage was connecting to the Lakota Sioux at Standing Rock," Ocasio-Cortez says in the video.
