    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,”...

    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...
  • Greta Thunberg says she has daily ‘laughing attacks’ and says her Asperger’s helps her see through ‘bulls**t’

    “People seem to think of me as an angry teenager,” she told the publication. “They obviously haven't met me. At least two or three times a day I get laughing attacks where I can't breathe. It can be anything. If I’m in a room with people, they suddenly realise I’m not breathing and ask me if I’m OK and it’s because I can’t stop! The teen reckons her Asperger’s Syndrome helps her quickly get to the truth of the matter and cut through the soundbites often given by politicians when it comes to climate change.
  • AOC says governors sending migrant buses to liberal cities are committing ‘crimes against humanity’

    Republican governors who are shipping migrants to liberal cities are committing “crimes against humanity,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fumed. “It’s appalling that far-right politicians seem to have decided that fall before an election is their regularly scheduled time to commit crimes against humanity on refugees,” she said in a tweet Friday evening. “Don’t normalize this. Lying to & trafficking people for TV and clicks isn’t politics as usual. It’s abuse.” For months, Texas has been busing migrants to so-called “sanctuary cities” like New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago in what they say is an effort pressure the Biden administration for more...
  • AOC’s Biggest Problem Is That She’s AOC

    I don’t know if the purpose of GQ‘s profile of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was to make its subject look like a whiny, cartoonish, spoiled, self-indulgent mediocrity, but that’s certainly the effect it had on me. At no point during the interview, it seems, did it occur to either the writer, Wesley Lowery, or his interviewee that the core problem that AOC faces is AOC — not other people. Take this line, for example, which represents just one part of a rambling, embarrassingly pseudo-eloquent answer to the question of whether, one day, she might be elected president:People ask me questions about the...
  • AOC predicts she won’t be president — because Americans ‘hate women’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it’s unlikely she could ever be elected president of the United States — because so many people in America “hate women” and “would never let that happen.” The socialist firebrand New York Democrat speculated about the possibilities of her launching a future White House bid in a wide-ranging cover interview with GQ magazine published Wednesday. Ocasio-Cortez said that while she tries to hold onto the belief that anything is possible, her experience in Congress has “given me a front-row seat to how deeply and unconsciously, as well as consciously, so many people in this country hate...

    A Democratic New York state Senate candidate backed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., celebrated her primary election victory by declaring "socialism wins." Kristen Gonzalez, a tech worker whose campaign for the New York state Senate was backed by the Democratic Socialists of America and left-wing lawmakers including Ocasio-Cortez, made the declaration to cheering supporters on Tuesday after winning her primary election. "I know we’re saving the speeches for a little later, but today we really proved that socialism wins!" Gonzalez said as her supporters cheered.

    Megyn Kelly blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a “moron” and a “Kardashian in Congress” after the progressive lawmaker called for impeaching Supreme Court justices over their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. During an appearance on Eric Bolling’s Monday night program on the right-leaning cable channel Newsmax, Kelly unloaded on the congresswoman from the Bronx and Queens during a discussion of the aftermath of Friday’s dramatic abortion ruling. Kelly was asked to opine on the Sunday comments by Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) when she demanded that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh be impeached for allegedly lying under oath during their...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Saturday slammed Congress for being corrupt and full of “so much decay and moral emptiness” after failing to pass radical policies to fundamentally alter the nation. “It’s just really wild to be a person that works in a corrupt institution, which is what Congress is,” Ocasio-Cortez stated after Congress failed to pass socialistic policies last year. “And to try and be a normal person surrounded by so much decay and moral emptiness — that frankly transcends party — is very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said, clearly referring to both the Republican and Democrat Parties.

    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.

    Eager to side with the winner and in the process steal some credit, AOC tweeted in support of the Amazon Labor Union’s emphatic victory with emojis of a clench-fisted arm. However, journalist Krystal Ball was keeping track of it all, and confronted AOC with proof that AOC has lied about postponing public appearances weeks before she attended the high-profile Met Gala. “Here’s the guy who organized the union drive talking about how you left them high and dry. These are your constituents, and you couldn’t be bothered to show up until they’re on the cusp of victory,” Ball tweeted to...

    Fox News host Jesse Watters asked former Bush deputy chief of staff Karl Rove about the possibility that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., could make a run for the presidency in 2024. On "Jesse Watters Primetime," Watters noted that Ocasio-Cortez portrays herself as a paragon of knowledge, most recently pertaining to the public's understanding of capitalism and socialism. He asked Rove his thoughts on whether the left-wing "Squad" member has a chance. "This is way too wild … Wouldn't it be great if you were right? Because it would be such a fun campaign, and the Republicans would win overwhelmingly —...
  • 'The entire country supports a shift away from fossil fuels': AOC calls Biden's SOTU speech a 'lost opportunity' for failing to promote renewable energy, tackle the 'crisis in education', student loan debt or immigration

    U.S. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said President Joe Biden's State of the Union address 'left a little to be desired' for Democrats because he did not push issues like renewable energy, student loan debt, education or immigration. The New York Democrat said Biden's speech on Tuesday, where he focused on COVID recovery and the conflict in the Ukraine, failed to capitalize on moving away from Russian oil by committing to green energy. 'I think it was a lost opportunity,' Ocasio-Cortez, 32, told MSNBC. 'There is profound bipartisan support to a long-term shift away from fossil fuels.' She added that Biden had...

    Any sane person realizes that the Virginia gubernatorial election was in effect a referendum on the gallop toward socialism that Old Joe Biden and his handlers have taken the country on since Jan. 20 and knows that race-baiting and the repudiation of parental authority are not a winning formula. But when we’re talking about rational and reality-based assessments, that leaves out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Trotsky), who has her own analysis of why the socialist, authoritarian Democrats crashed and burned in Virginia on Tuesday: they weren’t Leftist enough..@AOC finds a silver lining in Virginia election losses.“I think that the results show...
