  • Democratic Socialists of America Cheer Murder and Kidnapping of Israelis at Hands of Hamas Terrorists

    10/09/2023 5:25:46 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 20 replies
    Hamas terrorists fired rockets into towns, shot at civilians from paragliders, and kidnapped women and children from their homes. Grandmothers at gunpoint, loaded onto golf carts, to be held hostage or killed by twisted, depraved thugs — supported by soulless New York City progressives. Yes, in Times Square on Sunday, the Democratic Socialists of America will host an “All Out for Palestine” rally. Wear a mask so you’re not recognized, the organizers say. Best to just let the swastikas do the talking. “Never mind the hundreds of Israeli civilians and children who have been murdered, wounded, abducted, and terrorized. Their...
  • AOC just endorsed Joe Biden for reelection: ‘I think he’s done quite well’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign, sending a strong sign of Democratic unity from one of the party’s most liberal members. “I think he’s done quite well, given the limitations that we have,” Ocasio-Cortez said on the “Pod Save America” podcast Thursday. “I do think that there are ebbs and flows.” Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist from New York, has sometimes bucked Biden and the party’s leaders, including voting against the deal the president negotiated with Republicans in May to raise the nation’s debt ceiling and casting the lone Democratic vote against a spending bill...

    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...

    The Christian Post ^ | 02-13-2023 | Leonardo Blair
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., sparked a still raging firestorm of reactions Sunday night when she compared an advertisement about Jesus during the Super Bowl to “fascism.” “Something tells me Jesus would *not* spend millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet in response to the airing of an ad from He Gets Us, “a diverse group of Jesus followers” and supporters committed to telling the story of Jesus through "a modern lens." In one of the 30-second ads from the Christian group called “Be Childlike” set to the soundtrack of Patsy...
  • House Ethics panel extends probe into dress, other gifts Ocasio-Cortez received for 2021 Met Gala

    The House Ethics Committee is extending its review on whether Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accepted impermissible gifts associated with her appearance at the 2021 Met Gala. The bipartisan committee said Thursday members decided in December 2022 to extend their review into the allegation after they received a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics. An 18-page report prepared by the office made public Thursday and reviews by NBC News shows the New York lawmaker may have violated House rules, standards of conduct and federal law and concluded there was "substantial reason to believe" Ocasio-Cortez accepted impermissible gifts. House lawmakers are...

    What do we call people who don't pay the help? Well, in the past, they were known as plantation owners, or slave-holders, a hot topic for wokester leftists. Nowadays, just say "Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez." She's got quite a track record of not paying the help based on her appearance at the Met Gala last year, according to revelations from the congressional ethics investigation on her. She not only took "gifts" (really big gifts, which started with the $35,000 price of the ticket), but failed to pay in any timely manner the staff who fluffed her up in her famous "Tax...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — During a tense Congressional Hearing, deductive polymath Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put a widespread conspiracy theory to rest when she vocally insisted that there were no hysterectomies being performed on minors because most of them are too busy working in the mines anyway. The truth-filled gavel drop utterly destroyed the claim by conservatives that the Boston Children's Hospital was performing the irreparable surgeries on minors. "How can minors find the time to travel via minecart to far-away Boston when they're busy mining for coal, iron, and lapis lazuli," explained Ocasio-Cortez to an awestruck chamber. "And it's not just...

    The Babylon Bee ^ | Feb 4, 2023 |
    In yet another stunning move that barely registers as a shock anymore, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez labeled oxygen as a so-called “dangerous greenhouse gas” in a speech delivered to a climate-change skeptics group. “Oxygen is a very insidious gas,” said the self-described Democratic Socialist, who is surely no stranger to the radical notion. “It causes irreparable damage to our environment, with earth-poisoning properties that are only now beginning to be understood. We must take swift action in curbing its emissions and limiting the amount that individuals can encounter over their lifespans.”

    Morning Joe's parade of woke virtue-signaling marches on! Earlier this week, we caught Joe Scarborough apologizing for his white privilege. Speaking of the death of Tyre Nichols, Scarborough said that the police wouldn't have attacked him in similar circumstances because they'd know that "that hell would rain down from above." Scarborough conveniently ignored the fact that hell did rain down on the cops involved in the Nichols beating—all were promptly fired and charged with murder! Today, Morning Joe's virtue-signaling spotlight turned to the ouster, by a vote of Republicans, of far-left Representative Ilhan Omar from her seat on the House...

    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...

    Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York criticized Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, an outspoken gun-rights advocate, due to a shooting at a Colorado Springs bar. A gunman killed five people and 18 others suffered injuries at a Colorado Springs bar Saturday night before two people tackled the gunman and held him until police arrived, CNN reported. At least two people were in critical condition at one local hospital. “@laurenboebert you have played a major role in elevating anti-LGBT+ hate rhetoric and anti-trans lies while spending your time in Congress blocking even the most common sense gun safety laws,”...

    I’d pay $8 just for this. There have been quite a few reactions to Tesla CEO and Chief Twit Elon Musk announcing that checkmarks will be handed out to anyone who signs up for Twitter Blue at $8 a month. The goal seems pretty obvious. Not only will it reduce the number of bots and help identify real accounts, but it’ll also bring in a fair bit of revenue for Twitter Many blue-check lefties are getting up in arms over the announcement as they now understand they will no longer be the elite Twitter users. Then, there’s naturally the argument...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens, Bronx) is running a robust retail operation that would make Jeff Bezos envious, shelling out $2 million since January 2021 on campaign merch that is flying off the shelves. The products hawked on her campaign website include $58 “Tax the Rich” sweatshirts — currently sold out — $28 Green New Deal hats and $27 tees that say “Drink Water & Don’t Be A Racist.” A “Better World Is Possible” sweatshirt for $58 is sold out in all but one size. Like true cut-throat capitalists, the campaign appears to have marked up the AOC gear by more...

    While discussing issues surrounding the upcoming midterm elections, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she believes the United States is 'facing an environment of fascism.' The New York representative was joined by Rep. Jamie Raskin in a discussion with MSNBC political commentator Chris Hayes to talk about the nearing elections, recent economic turmoil and infrastructure. Ocasio-Cortez likened alleged voter suppression in Arizona, a state in which a federal judge refused to bar an activist group from monitoring outdoor ballot boxes, to historical instances of racism.

    Sometimes, you’ve just gotta dance. Drumming protesters crashed another town hall event hosted by far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Wednesday night, with the “Squad” member eventually bopping along to their rhythmic chants. Video of the protest in Queens showed demonstrators chanting “AOC has got to go” and holding up signs denouncing the 33-year-old congresswoman while a man with a hand drum pounds out a beat. The loud jeering and chanting left Ocasio-Cortez with nothing better to do than show off her moves while she sat on the edge of a stage. At one point, the lawmaker appeared to spot a...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz mocked progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday night after the New York Democrat pretended to be handcuffed during a pro-abortion rally this week. The Republican legislator used Ocasio-Cortez's arrest as a punchline while denouncing the sky-high 9.1 percent inflation rate seen just last month as a failure of the Biden administration. He also took a shot at California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell for his past links to an alleged Chinese spy named Fang Fang. 'Inflation is out of control. Food is skyrocketing. Electricity is skyrocketing. Health care is skyrocketing,' Cruz told his audience. 'It is so...

    The DCCC told Fox News on Monday that it plans to spend $425,000 on a new ad buy to boost Republican challenger John Gibbs against Meijer, who was one of the 10 House Republicans that voted to impeach former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol. The ad buy appears to be an effort by national Democrats to help Gibbs win the primary in hopes of setting up a more favorable general election showdown for Democratic candidate Hillary Scholten, who is running unopposed in the primary.

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez missed the Aug. 13 deadline to submit her 2021 financial disclosures to the House Ethics Committee. Ocasio-Cortez, a prominent Democratic member of the House, is not worried. "[T]he Committee provides a 30-day grace period before fines are levied. The Congresswoman plans to file before the period expires," a spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic nomination in a Tuesday primary as she ran unopposed, meaning that Democratic voters did not get the chance to scrutinize her disclosures during the primary process. The documents are expected to be filed with the Clerk of the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes Americans should be more supportive of one another — and that we can start by embracing President Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness plan. On Saturday, one of Ocasio-Cortez's Instagram followers asked her, "How does cancelling student debt help us who paid their loans?" The New York representative, 32, respectfully took issue with the question and offered a lengthy response explaining why. "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Not every program has to be for everybody," Ocasio-Cortez replied, mentioning other programs that use taxpayer dollars to benefit specific populations — like first-time homeowner benefits,...
