    The 2022 campaign season has already kicked off for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Republican Desi Cuellar — who, like AOC, is an ex-bartender — formed a campaign committee in June to challenge the congresswoman, and this week launched his first attack ad. "AOC is running and propagating so many leftist policies and it has forced me to feel like I have to do something because I don’t see anyone else doing anything about it in my area," Cuellar, 34, told The Post. Despite being just months into the race, the candidate says he’s already banked about $60,000 and held meetings with...

  • Vogue releases fawning video of AOC's ENORMOUS glam squad putting her into THAT dress for $35K-a-head Met Gala appearance as she justifies attendance because she 'did it for the people of The Bronx'

    Vogue has released a fawning video of socialist firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her enormous glam squad revealing how they put together the now-infamous 'Tax the rich' dress for her controversial Met Gala appearance. AOC was coy about her controversial appearance at the ultra-elite Met Gala before revealed that she and her boyfriend Riley Roberts had their $35,000-a-head tickets comped by the museum. However, this new video shows that Vogue and AOC were partners in the controversy. The magazine posted a 10-minute video late Thursday night documenting the Democratic congresswoman's preparations for fashion's big night out.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Tuesday reacted to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sporting a designer dress with the message “Tax the Rich” across the back at Monday’s Met Gala. McCarthy questioned the legality of Ocasio-Cortez’s attendance of the expensive event but said it shows that the self-described “socialist Democrat” is the “leader of the Democratic Party.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., bashed Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., on Thursday in an apparent attempt to assign blame for the 12 flooding deaths in New York City caused by Tropical Storm Ida. "Manchin has weekly huddles w/ Exxon & is one of many senators who gives lobbyists their pen to write so-called 'bipartisan' fossil fuel bills," she said. "It’s killing people. Our people. At least 12 last night. Sick of this ‘bipartisan’ corruption that masquerades as clear-eyed moderation."

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in an interview with CNN that aired Monday evening said she had fears of being raped during the Jan. 6 insurrection in which she recounted people banging on her office doors while she hid. "I didn't think that I was just going to be killed," Ocasio-Cortez told CNN anchor Dana Bash. "I thought other things were going to happen to me as well." The New York Democrat said that "white supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways," and remarked on what she sees are the sexualization that violence. When asked by Bash...

  • WATCH: AOC Caught Using Facemask As Prop For Photo-Op… IMMEDIATELY Takes It Off While Still In Large Group

    Remember in the summer of 2019 when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got called out for faking tears for a photo-op at a migrant housing facility? It turned out that she couldn’t even see the children and the photos were completely staged. Of course we know she’s a fraud now given the fact that she no longer cares about the migrant kids in cages under the Biden administration. Well, it looks like she’s at it again. Both AOC and Ed Markey don their facemasks for a photo op during a sit-in yesterday at the Capitol, but immediately take them off when photo...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the “absurdly cruel” U.S. embargo of Cuba on Thursday for the nation’s turmoil, singling out “Trump-era restrictions” on the socialist state as driving the unrest. In her first formal statement responding to the protests that have rocked Havana’s Communist dictatorship, the Bronx Congresswoman says she backed the protesters. In a statement posted on Twitter, she then laid out where the blame should be laid: She said the repressive Havana regime was not the only cause of the island nation’s troubles: We also must name the U.S. contribution to Cuban suffering: our sixty-year-old embargo. Last month,...

    New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said at a press conference Thursday the U.S. should “stop building” jails if we want to reduce the inmate population. “It is not acceptable for us to use jails as garbage bins for human beings. We need to treat people and see them as human,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “If we want to reduce violent crime, reduce the number of people in our jails, the answer is to stop building more of them.” “The answer is to make sure we actually build more hospitals, we pay organizers, we get people mental health care,” she said. “It’s...

    House Democratic leadership discussed the legality and logistics of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) filing a restraining order against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after the Republican has verbally attacked the progressive lawmaker, and likened COVID-19 restrictions to the Holocaust. Top Democrats have reportedly floated a potential restraining order for Ocasio-Cortez against Greene, sources told Politico, noting the Democrat would likely have to seek the order out herself. Greene first confronted Ocasio-Cortez before she was elected to Congress last year as a conservative activist. Earlier this month, after Greene shouted “Hey, Alexandria” multiple times outside the House chamber, Greene pressed the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took a swipe at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Thursday, likening her to the “kinds of people that I threw out of bars” after the Georgia Republican aggressively confronted her outside the House chamber the day before. "I used to work as a bartender. These are the kinds of people that I threw out of bars all the time,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters on Capitol Hill. “For me, this isn't even about how I feel. It's that I refuse to allow young women, people of color, people who are standing up for what they believe, to...

  • AOC Sounds Off On Border Crisis, Gives Biden A Pass; Blames ‘Imperialism,’ ‘Climate,’ ‘Trade’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the worsening immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border on imperialism, climate change, trade policy, and the prison system. Ocasio-Cortez sounded off on the border crisis Tuesday on Instagram. The New York Democrat did not explicitly blame President Joe Biden for the surge of illegal migrants crossing the U.S. border, though migrants themselves cite the president and his policies as primary factors in their decision to travel to the U.S. “So let’s talk about this because so much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation, about immigration is driven by people who could...

    Etymologically narcissism and narcotics have a common origin thousands of years ago. Narcisissus got drunk with self-love so delirious that it killed him. Narcotics are mind altering substances that can be so damaging that they are illegal. Is there anything more narcissistic than terminating life within you as a method of contraception? (NB some terminations are like this. Not all of them. The decision to terminate is not always narcissism.) How is spending money you dont have and thereby crippling future generations with debt anything other narcissim? Some people like to slam Donald Trump as an alleged narcissist. There is...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused the Republican leader of the House, Kevin McCarthy, of being controlled by QAnon-supporting members of Congress, claiming the party has had an influx of 'legitimate white supremacists' into its ranks. The New York congresswoman appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday night and was asked about shocking behavior by Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. Greene, who openly supports the QAnon conspiracy theory - the idea that Donald Trump was sent to save the world from a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles, working in the 'deep state' - has found herself in the spotlight for her social media posts.

    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...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Wednesday that she does not want to hear the “coup-supporting GOP talk about ‘blue lives’ ever again” in the wake of the Capitol protests, concluding that Republicans care more about “preserving the social order and the mythology of whiteness” than democracy. “I don’t want to hear these coup-supporting GOP talk about ‘blue lives’ ever again,” the New York lawmaker told her 11.5 million Twitter followers Wednesday afternoon.
