Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Trump Threatening Iranian Cultural Sites Was an ‘Extension of White Supremacy’

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said on Monday at the MLK Now 2020 event that President Donald Trump’s tweet that America was targeting Iranian culture sites is “an extension of white supremacy.” Ocasio-Cortez said, “In speaking about war too, I’ve been

AOC Calls Democratic Party ‘Center-Conservative,’ Would Drag It Further to the Left

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is as far left as they come in American politics, and that’s saying something with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders around. But if AOC has her way, her entire party will follow her lead. As things currently stand, even with the Democratic Party’s shift to the far left in recent years,…

Dem House Candidate in NYC Supports Replacing Jail Time with Art Class

Jamaal Bowman, a hard-left candidate looking to primary New York Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel out of a seat in New York’s 16th Congressional District, is a former middle school principal. A lot of the solutions he proposes were no doubt shaped by his milieu. There is a limit to what I can reasonably understand, however,…

Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez Angry USMCA Doesn’t Contain ‘a Single Damn Mention of Climate Change’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are upset that the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) agreement, which passed in the U.S. Senate on Thursday, does not contain “a single damn mention of ‘climate change.'”

Millennials’ Favorable View of Socialism Will Play Prominently in 2020 Election

Exclusive – Matt Mowers: Democrat Chris Pappas a ‘Partisan Pelosi Puppet’

Former Donald Trump White House official Matt Mowers told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Tuesday that Rep. Chris Pappas (D-NH) betrayed his campaign promise to remain an independent voice in D.C. and instead has become a loyal supporter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Party Rift Becomes Clearer Than Ever as Dem Leader Won’t Even Call Ocasio-Cortez ‘Good’

The praise was faint — and it was damning. During her first year in Congress, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been the subject of embarrassingly fawning media coverage and hailed by Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. But for a picture of how actual, serious members of the party establishment feel about the…

PETA Feuding with AOC for Setting Bad Example by Getting French Bulldog

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals v. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the useless cultural battle America didn’t know it needed until this past week. And make no mistake — we needed it. Between Iran and impeachment, we required a bit of levity, a cute French bulldog and liberals eating their own. So, here’s the setup,…

DCCC Chair Dodges Multiple Times on Whether Ocasio-Cortez Is Good For the Democratic Caucus

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.) in a Sunday interview dodged multiple questions as to whether Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) is good for the Democratic caucus.

Asked by CNN anchor Victor Blackwell if Ocasio-Cortez is “good for the Democratic caucus in the House,” Bustos offered that “she has a lot of followers. I have respect for her. She brings a new voice to Congress.” Pressed by Blackwell, Bustos added, “We’ve got members from all different spectrums. I respect her, and she brings a new voice. I think that’s always welcome.”

Angling for an answer to the same question, Blackwell brought up Ocasio-Cortez’s fundraising prowess, noting that in the last quarter she outraised even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.).

“I’m asking the chairwoman of the DCCC if this member, who is right now in the top ten of House members raising money, if she’s good for the caucus. You can’t give me a straight yes or no,” Blackwell said.

“Look, I have respect for all 235 of the Democrats in our caucus. She is bringing a new voice. The fact that she has raised unbelievable amounts of money and the fact that she just announced she’s willing to help our candidates who need—who could benefit with that financial help. That’s welcomed,” Bustos said.

“I’m trying to get to a simple answer. And I took four passes each at two questions. I didn’t get there,” Blackwell said.

Bustos’s comments are just the latest contribution to the controversy surrounding Ocasio-Cortez’s unwillingness to fork over the $250,000 in dues expected of all House Democrats. Responding to news of her nonpayment, several House Democrats publicly said they were angry about the freshman Democrats’s refusal to pay up. The self-proclaimed democratic socialist in turn defended her choice, saying her move was a protest against the DCCC’s policy of blacklisting any organization that helps primary opponents opposing Democratic incumbents.

The fundraising kerfuffle is not Ocasio-Cortez’s only recent clash with fellow Democrats. In an interview with New York magazine, she criticized the party for being “too big of a tent” and said that she did not belong in the same party as former vice president Joe Biden.

AOC: People My Age Are Scared to Have Kids Because of Climate Crisis

On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told TMZ that due to the effects of climate change people her age were “stressed” about having children. Ocasio-Cortez said, “I mean, this is our future because I think for us the stakes are

Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Freeloading on DCCC

Self-proclaimed democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) reportedly has yet to pay dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Fox News reporter Judson Berger reports that Ocasio-Cortez has not paid up, which has upset some of her Democratic colleagues.

“Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?… And do you want to be part of a team?” Rep. Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) said.

Every Democrat in the House is expected to pay dues to the DCCC to help the committee protect vulnerable members and elect new candidates. The Intercept, however, reported last year that freshman congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez would not be paying. When Ocasio-Cortez joined Congress, she asked the DCCC if raising money online and social media for her colleagues would be counted as her dues. The DCCC said those funds would not count, prompting Ocasio-Cortez to notify the committee that she would not be paying dues.

Ocasio-Cortez has recently clashed with members of her own party. In a recent interview, she criticized her party for being “too big of a tent” and said that she did not belong in the same party as former vice president Joe Biden.

“They let anybody who the cat dragged in call themselves a progressive. There’s no standard,” Ocasio-Cortez said about the Congressional Progressive Caucus, adding that the same goes for the Democratic Party. “Democrats can be too big of a tent.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blasted as a ‘Deadbeat’ by Fellow Democrats for Refusing To Pay Party Dues

Democratic socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ruffling some feathers within her own party by refusing to donate any money to the House campaign arm of the Democratic Party. Ocasio-Cortez has always been something of a rebel within the Democratic Party. After all, she won her seat in 2018 after successfully primarying longtime Democratic…
