Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), currently the youngest representative in the legislative branch, may be looking at even higher office in the future. During an interview with Vanity Fair, the democratic-socialist congresswoman revealed that she doesn’t “know if I’m really going to be staying in the House forever, or if I do stay in the House, what that would look like.”“I don’t see myself really staying where I’m at for the rest of my life,” she added, which could simply imply seeking a congressional leadership position or moving beyond the House of Representatives.

Higher office? Maybe AOC wants to be the Pope? She certainly has a lot in common with the current pope. And never forget that the ex-wife of Richard Celeste, a former governor of Ohio, divorced him, became a lesbian and then declared herself the first female Catholic priest in North America. If Dagmar Celeste can do this, then certainly AOC can declare herself the Pope.

Actually, with so many bars and restaurants closing in NY she'd have a tough time being hired into a position for which she is truly fit (barely). And since the democrat party typically chooses the least qualified candidates for any government position it looks like she might be around for awhile. Democrats do not demand that the people they choose be the sharpest tool in the drawer. Lucky for her.

As President Trump said, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will run against Chuck Schumer for his Senate seat in the New York primaries and will win. The old liberal Democrats like Schumer are going to be knocked off one by one by the much younger Democrat socialists and will loose their seats.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is assembling an “all-star” legal team to spearhead legal challenges in battleground states such as Michigan, according to a Wednesday report.Just The News’ John Solomon reports. Among the lawyers the president is activating include his private attorney Jay Sekulow, who will help campaign lawyers with matters before the Supreme Court as well as former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, officials said.

With the unprecedented decision of key battleground states to suddenly stop counting votes on election night, it is apparent that Democrat efforts to steal back the White House are in progress. The counting was paused after it became clear that Trump had built large leads in both Michigan and Pennslyvania and after his voters had already debunked the media's scam that Joe Biden was going to win in a landslide. With the fate of the nation now hanging in the balance and the election in limbo, it is important to point out that lunchbucket Joe let the cat out of the bag with one of his trademark gaffes;

The Trump campaign insisted that it could still win Arizona and pushed back against Fox News, which had called the state for Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump allies have lined up to blast pro-Biden sections of the American media after predictions of a Democratic landslide crumbled and the race went down to the wire. The president's conservative cheerleaders took to the airwaves to lampoon U.S. commentators for consistently writing him off during the course of the campaign. Despite a strong showing in opinion polls and forecasts from pundits, Biden has failed to flip crucial battleground states such as Florida and Ohio blue. Biden supporters are cautioning that a rally for President Trump could be a 'red mirage' and that mail-in ballots will tip the balance for Biden when counted.

CNN’s hatred for President Trump and Republicans was boiling over on the eve of Election Day. Their animus was perfectly summed up during a Monday segment of Cuomo PrimeTime which featured New York Times columnist, the insufferably pompous Tom Friedman. According to the duo, the Republicans were just a bunch of “manure” eating racists and whores trying to stir up a Lebanese-style civil war while trying to suppress votes, while President Trump was trying to “put a bullet into the country.” Nothing about that description is an exaggeration. With just hours until polls opened, they were throwing everything they had at the all.

Washington—Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, will not make public how they voted in this year’s presidential race, four years after the couple revealed on Election Day that they had selected “none of the above” in the 2016 White House contest. Bush spokesman Freddy Ford—who has stressed repeatedly over the 2020 campaign cycle that the former president is “retired from presidential politics”—on Monday confirmed that the Dallas residents are keeping their ballot box decisions to themselves this year. That it’s even a question is remarkable, underscoring yet again how Trump has transformed the Republican Party from the party it was under Bush.

President Donald Trump suggested to a Florida rally crowd he might fire Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, once Election Day has passed. This is called an About Time moment. Fauci should’ve been fired long ago. Truth be told, Fauci never should have been granted the wide-scale, nationwide public platform at the White House in the first place. He should’ve been kept behind scenes, as one of many COVID-19 advisers to the president. He only should have been given the media platform when he was speaking a tightly controlled administration-penned message. Why?

Meanwhile, five more states legalized marijuana for adults.
