    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Israel had “crossed the threshold of intent” and was causing genocide in Gaza. On the House floor, Ocasio-Cortez said, “If you want to know what an unfolding genocide looks like, open your eyes. It looks like the force famine of 1.1 million in a sense. We must write our story in this moment of what it means and who we are as Americans and our story must be not that we were good men who did nothing now.”

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the mastermind behind the ​Green New Deal and a prominent figure on the socialist front, found herself in the spotlight for a particularly peculiar reason. VIDEO AT LINK............ During her appearance on the ​New York City-based radio show, Ebro in the Morning on Thursday, AOC unintentionally provided a soundtrack to her discussion about the ​Israel-Hamas crisis. AOC appeared to let one slip – yes, we’re talking about a fart! The video interview was later posted on her official X (former Twitter) account. WATCH: (Fart sound at 0:38 mark) The internet wasted no time in sharing this comical mishap,...
  • Tlaib Denounces Israel following Hamas’ Horrific Attacks on Israeli Civilians-Will the House continue to look the other way?

    As one of the first orders of business after the House of Representatives selects a new Speaker and additional military and humanitarian aid is approved for Israel, the House should at minimum vote to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and take away her committee assignments. Rep. Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American sworn into Congress, reacted to the Hamas terrorists’ horrific massacre and abduction of Israeli civilians by condemning Israel’s “occupation” and “apartheid” policies. Not one word of condemnation for the atrocities the terrorists committed after invading Israel and rampaging through the streets and into Israeli homes, slaughtering men, women, and children...

    In May 2021, Joseph Borgen was violently assaulted by a Muslim mob while walking down the street in midtown Manhattan in the vicinity of an anti-Israel rally.

Even after Awawdeh reportedly told prison guards, “If I could do it again, I would do it again”,...
  • AOC Torched on Twitter after Claiming Gas Stoves Cause ‘Brain Damage’

    New York Congresswoman and radical leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a Twitter backlash following her claims that gas stoves are linked to brain damage. AOC mocked Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, after he tweeted he would never give up his gas stove on Monday. The heated exchange went viral, with many slamming Ocasio-Cortez for her claims. “Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance?” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in response to a tweet from Jackson. Jackson vowed that he would rather die than give up his gas stove. “I’ll NEVER give up my gas stove....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attempted to defend President Biden’s proposed ban on gas stoves in a viral Twitter spat Tuesday — only to be heckled herself by snarky social media users. “Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance,” the Bronx and Queens lawmaker tweeted in response to Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) vowing to “NEVER” give up his gas stove. But the congresswoman’s attempted clap-back backfired, as detractors — mainly politicians and conservative activists — were quick to pile on. “Is this an attack on @GordonRamsey,” joked Max Avery, a former...

    Reps. Matt Gaetz and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz told Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about a possible Democrat-led bail-out during Tuesday’s House vote, according to The Intercept. Inaudible footage showed Gaetz and Ocasio-Cortez speaking to each other during the vote for the new House speaker. Gaetz, an opponent of Speaker-designate McCarthy, told Ocasio-Cortez that McCarthy believed Democrats would bail him out, allowing him to win the speakership, The Intercept reported. Ocasio-Cortez assured Gaetz her party would not vote in favor of McCarthy, and that she’d spoken to other Democrats who backed her answer, according to The...

    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...

    Even for a guy like Elon Musk, $44 billion is quite a chunk of money to spend on anything, even for the most valuable and influential social media platform in the world. As often happens in the business world, cost-cutting measures are typically deployed upon acquiring a new business. According to a bombshell Bloomberg report Wednesday night, it appears the first money-saving cuts could come Friday in the way of firing roughly half of Twitter’s entire workforce. That would be about 3,700 jobs, according to the report. Musk is also set to require a majority of whichever workers are left...

    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...

Her tweet comes after Twitter owner Elon Musk shared his plan to raise the cost of the platform’s subscription service Twitter Blue to $8 per month. -snip People would still be about to use Twitter if they did not...

    If people haven’t figured out that AOC is a political hack, I am not sure what will change their minds. Maybe this video? Channeling her inner Hillary Clinton circa 2007, AOC got in front of a black audience at a recent speaking appearance for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and went full preacher mode, replete with the drawl, twang, and unmistakable cadence of someone decidedly not New York Puertorican. There are no words. Just watch: VIDEO AT LINK.................... I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail folding clothes for other people...

Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) wrote in a statement Tuesday. “The letter was drafted several months ago, but unfortunately was released by staff without vetting.” Though she blamed unnamed employees for the letter’s...

    The political pleasantries didn’t last long. Immediately after appearing together in public for the first time Friday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took aim at Mayor Adams’ plan to erect a migrant tent camp in her district, charging that there’s a “better solution” to be had. The progressive congresswoman, who’s had a simmering beef with the more moderate-minded mayor for months, offered the rebuke in a brief interview with the Daily News on the steps of City Hall following a press conference with Adams on an unrelated topic. “I think we can get to a place with a better solution here,”...

    A liberal Democratic activist group is being accused of anti-Semitism for mocking the names of two Jewish politicians — House candidate Dan Goldman and state Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz. “The jerk buying a House seat with inherited money is ‘Goldman’ … the IDC-adjacent Assembly member is ‘DINOwitz.’ Who came up with these names, Dickens?” a member of No IDC NY wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Saturday. The left-wing group was formed to defeat former members of the Independent Democratic Conference in the state Senate, who had a partnership with Republicans that helped keep the GOP in power. The IDC disbanded...
