Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be putting the heat on Congress, but it’s her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who’s dropping the napalm. In the last three weeks, he’s accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being a weak leader, moderate Dems of being racists, and took heat for a T-shirt glorifying a Nazi-sympathizing Indian nationalist. “If you put in a gatekeeper who’s an arsonist, what is the message that you are sending?” asked Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. One Democratic DC source said the “incredibly polarizing” Harvard grad is “pushing this conflict between Pelosi and AOC. “He and AOC

Chakrabarti is the guy pulling the strings behind AOC. The Social Democrats auditioned enough disaffected idiots until they found one with no shame and a big mouth. They're looking to unseat every house member in 20, 22, and so forth. If they're successful where do we normals go - Venezuela?

Trying to infuse an aspect of foreign origin Indian socialist politics into US liberal Democrat politics will probably be a looser, outside of radical Democrat socialist Congressional Districts in the big cities where Democrat socialist candidates can easily get elected in those Congressional Districts with low vote counts, since a good portion of those District constituencies are aliens, both illegal aliens and legal immigrants, who are not qualified by law to vote in US elections.

Why is a known Communist allowed to be Chief of Staff in Congress? The Russians claimed years ago that America would be taken over by Communism without a shot being fired. They were right. Interesting that all the Communists who are anti-Trumpers use the term "Russian" in order to instill fear in the hearts of Americans. They know that most Americans born and raised here are against Communism yet they are bringing it in slowly but surely. AOC is just a Trojan Horse.

Pelosi and the Dems should spend their money wisely backing a candidate to replace AOC,. No AOC, no Chief of Staff. And while you're at it take out the other 3 members of the Odd Squad as well.

I predict that Nancy is going to putting up with her because she is drawing interest in the democrats. Eventually she is going to have enough of her disrespect. I look for her to pull her committee assignments. Then she will order the media to isolate her. Other than Twitter, she will be unable to get her name mentioned. That will be the biggest issue for AOC. She is addicted to the attention. She would rather have bad attention than no attention.

Pelosi was born and raised at the knee of a father who ran Baltimore back in the day. She learned her politics well, and I do not think she is to be underestimated by a punk upstart. I cannot believe I am actually sort of rooting for Pelosi as much as I loathe her. But I do not appreciate the newbies who do not respect tradition, nor do they respect their districts or the rest of America. IMO, Pelosi needs to release the Kraken on the newbies and finally show them how it is done. The DNC needs to support Pelosi just a little better as well. Their whole party is imploding and it is fascinating to watch.

To elaborate on what #16 says, look here: https://www.facebook.com/ARGPoliticalNews/videos/1265846290229750/ Looks like Occasional Cortex was recruited, groomed, and managed in the same way Obama was. (Did we ever know who Obama was speaking to all that time on this Blackberry?) The video claims that everything she says and Tweets is written by her handlers. In the same way that I'd like to see the Beto person called O'Rourke, or Robert Francis O'Rourke, I'd like to see us drop the AOC and call her Occasio or Cortez, or even if we must, Occasio-Cortez. Those who were called by initials-----LBJ, HST, FDR, MIL, JFK, etc., had earned notoriety from something positive. (Although I mostly disagree with this bunch.) They had gained prominence **before** the nicknamed initials were given. I refuse to call her by her initials, just like I refuse to use the purposely misleading Hispanic diminutive for the O'Rourke person.

Whatever happened to the investigation of Saikat shifting millions into his three personal accounts ? How many politicians in DC are handled by foreigners? How many are obligated to Sorryos? This is so disturbing and not enough conservatives care or will do anything to stop it.

Rep. Ilhan Omar fired a heated broadside at President Trump in the wake of his recent inflammatory tweets about the Minnesota Democrat and other progressive congresswomen. Speaking during a news conference alongside Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Omar forcefully went after Trump. "This is a president who has ultimately violated the very value our country aspires to uphold," she said in the stunning attack. "To distract from that, he is launching a blatantly racist attack on four duly-elected members of the United States House of Representatives, all of whom are women of color.

An internal Democratic poll that is circulating among party leaders shows Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota might be a liability to their party in the 2020 election. The poll, whose details were published by Axios on Sunday, surveyed over 1,000 white voters with two or less years of college education. It found that 74% of those polled recognized Ocasio-Cortez, while only 22% of them had a positive view of her. Additionally, 53% of those polled recognized Omar, while only 9% had a favorable view of her. A top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional

Joe Biden's anti-busing stance was a lot harsher than he's previously been willing to admit. The former vice president's opposition to federally mandated busing to integrate schools during his early senatorial career hit the mainstream in last month's Democratic primary debates, when Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) revealed how she'd benefited from busing as a child. That sparked the The New York Times' deep dive into "how Joe Biden became the Democrats' anti-busing crusader," which, published Monday, digs up a slew of anti-busing quotes from Biden's long political record.

A new poll released by Gallup shows almost two-thirds of Americans saying they oppose making Washington, D.C., a separate state. In the poll released Monday, 64% of those polled said they oppose making D.C. a state, while only 29% favor it.

AUSTIN —Just nine months ago, attorney Katie Baron was so inspired by Beto O’Rourke’s Senate campaign in Texas that she commissioned a sprawling mural on the side of a building in east Austin featuring the candidate in a Superman-like pose. After O’Rourke lost race and began mulling a presidential campaign, the artist added a sweeping “2020” in blue paint — providing what seemed to be yet one more call for O’Rourke to get into the crowded race. Now, four months into O’Rourke’s campaign, Baron wishes he had stayed out. After the first Democratic presidential debate last month, Baron posted an
