    Concerned that “free speech can be abused by enemies of the Biden Administration to undermine its policies and programs,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for “the creation of a commission or some similar agency to rein in media who deviate from the truth.” While the United States has relied on the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech for the last 230 years to prevent the government from censoring criticism of itself, Ocasio-Cortez contends that “the anarchy allowed by our Constitution is not up to the task of shepherding the American people toward the democratic socialism voters just endorsed...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is criticizing President-elect Biden's new coronavirus relief, arguing that it doesn't go far enough to help people in need during the pandemic. Biden's stimulus plan, which includes the increased payments, would cost $1.9 trillion. According to The Washington Post, most people would end up with a total of $2,000 in stimulus, including $600 checks dispensed in recent legislation. But that wasn't enough for Ocasio-Cortez, who appeared to want the latest checks to reach $2,000 as she and others have repeatedly requested. "$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,″ she told the Post.

    AOC is calling on Congress to directly violate the First Amendment by ‘reining in’ media that might be favorable to President Trump. ‘We’re going to have to figure out how we reign in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation’ Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated that some Congress members are discussing the need to create an investigative commission to “rein in” media sources that she said “spew disinformation and misinformation” that played a part in the January 6 storming of the Capitol building. “There’s absolutely a commission that is being discussed, but it seems to...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fumed at Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) for contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election last week, saying that they needed to “get out” and they “do not belong” in the Senate. “And so, I want to be clear to Senator Ted Cruz, you do not belong in the United States Senate.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that half of the members of the House were at risk of dying during the Capitol protests on Wednesday as she and other Democrats prepare to vote this week on another impeachment against President Donald Trump. 'If another head of state came in and ordered an attack on the United States Congress, would we say that that should not be prosecuted? Would we say that there should be absolutely no response to that?' the New York congresswoman posed to ABC's 'This Week' host George Stephanopoulos. 'No,' Ocasio-Cortez asserted. 'It is an act of insurrection. It's an...

That’s the warning New York’s Democratic party boss has for the sophomore Congresswoman, who is rumored to be mulling a primary challenge to US Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. “I think it would be a primary driven by ambition more than by need,” Jay Jacobs told The Post. “Chuck Schumer has been a progressive force in the state for decades,” added the chairman of the state Democratic committee. “She has a constituency that admires her and supports her, and they’re in her community, and I think it would be a loss for them if she were...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is trashing President-Elect Joe Biden’s “revolving door” transition team of corporate insiders and special interests, calling it “horrible.” During an interview with The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill of the Intercepted podcast, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about Biden’s choice to give cabinet positions and transition team spots to Washington, D.C. insiders, McKinsey consultants, Big Tech employees, and Wall Street executives. Scahill called Biden’s transition team a “corporate revolving door” while Ocasio-Cortez noted Biden’s seemingly total rejection of left-wing populism that has, in some cases, allied with right-wing populists on issues of stimulus checks for Americans and ending foreign wars.

MTA officials have threatened 40 to 50 percent transit cuts and layoffs unless the agency gets $12 billion it requested from Washington D.C. The plan obtained by NY1 shows that on weekends, trains could run every 15 minutes, with longer waits between trains on weekdays, and even potential, unspecified suspensions in...

A constituent asked Ocasio-Cortez about her thoughts on Democrats shrinking their majority in the House and expressed her frustration. “Why did we lose so many seats, and what needs to be done to get them back next term?” the moderator asked on behalf on the constituent. “So, you know, of course, the loss of the House majority is just extraordinarily upsetting to all of us.
