Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on The View Wednesday where she was at first lavished with praise from the hosts but then grilled about her support for Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg first introduced Ocasio-Cortez as one of the “most talked about and controversial congresswomen,” before Sunny Hostin asked about her endorsing Sanders.
Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Zendaya and….AOC? Apparently, Freeform’s grown-ish wants their young viewers to see the socialist-loving Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as on the level of these popular celebrities.
For the few folks still wondering why the Democrats are not doing so hot this election cycle, could it have anything to do with the fact that sham impeachments and drag queens are their priorities these days?
Many Republicans -- and some Democrats as well -- have been unhappy ever since wildly liberal Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won New York’s 14th congressional district in November of 2018, after she upset 10-term Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley. While several people have expressed an interest in running against her in this year’s primary and general election, the most recent person to challenge that member of the liberal “Squad” is Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former anchor for the CNBC channel who is a registered Democrat and a descendant of Cuban immigrants.
On Morning Joe, Democrat Donny Deutsch, panicked at the prospect of Bernie Sanders winning the nomination, says that Democrats who think Sanders can defeat President Trump are are "smoking something."
On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-N.Y.), sat for a discussion with author Ta-Nehisi Coates. She dropped a number of shocking statements -- statements that elicited nothing but murmurs of agreement from Coates. AOC claimed: “No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars.” How, pray tell, are American billionaires responsible for such massive theft? According to AOC, the very mechanisms of capitalism mandate such theft.
Conservatives are not going to agree with a lot of points in The New Republic -- and it's more liberal than it used to be in the last century. But there's some common ground when it comes to the media's "fact-checking" operations. There is a lot of opinion smeared all over the "facts."
2019 was another year of smashing success for the NewsBusters team as we had umpteen media stories to cover throughout the year, whether it was the Jussie Smollett debacle, the Mueller Report, impeachment, 2020 debates, and more online censorship. While it may seem repetitive, NewsBusters would be nowhere near what its become since its inception in 2005 without the support of beloved readers (and adversaries) who view us as essential reading.
“Blowout” was how one UK newspaper described the decisive victory of Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party in last week's election. How decisive was it? Not only did conservatives win an 80-seat majority in Parliament, a constituency in Blythe Valley in Northeast England elected a conservative member for the first time since its creation 40 years ago. Pundits leading up to the election were wrong, as usual. They predicted a very tight race.
Meg Kelly of the Washington Post "Fact Checker" squad came running to defend Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from ten seconds of a negative ad.
The conservative American Action Network begins with a clip of AOC saying "This is about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year." Then a female announcer adds: "Now, it’s crystal clear their partisan impeachment is a politically motivated charade.”
The intrusion of protest onto sporting venues is becoming more frequent, and that was evident again Saturday when social justice protesters delayed the start of the second half of a football game between Yale and Harvard. This year alone, two college football games have been marred by protest. As Americans shamed their country at the Pan American Games, anthem kneeling continues in the NFL and major league soccer is a forum for rabid political protest. Saturday's debacle got thumbs up admiration from three members of Congress.
Fashion magazine Elle claims that it’s all about strong women. So then why does the December issue choose to honor a bunch of subversive, progressive women who are contributing to the delusion and hysteria of the next female generation?
