Socialist diva Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez added yet another bizarre claim to her greatest hits, claiming that abortion is an economic issue because women being forced to care for an unwanted child are “conscripted” into a lifetime of work that deprives them of autonomy. The childless New York City congresswoman’s wild assertion came on Thursday during a House hearing called by Democrats to grandstand on abortion less than six weeks before the midterm elections. “Abortion is an economic issue,” proclaimed the New York Democrat.

What a hateful, nasty, self-centered, loud mouthed barmaid. I really see why she stole the tip jar. My bet is that nobody ever gave her a tip, so she had to steal the tip jar to "get her fair share".....not realizing that in customer service work, when you do terrible service, you don't get tipped. A thoroughly rotten person with a black heart.

If pregnancy was a spontaneous thing then maybe she has a point. But, it's not. A woman ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS has the ability to avoid becoming pregnant outside of rape, which is an extreme outlier in the statistics. There are a thousand ways to enjoy someone else's company that do not involve the chance of pregnancy. Girls... just buy a blue dress.

If you don't want to get pregnant, either abstain from sex or use contraception. Easy enough.

No darling, with rare exception the act resulting in the birth of children is something you freely choose to do. Now being forced to work longer hours and past what otherwise might be retirement age in order to pay for those who refuse to work for themselves, now that's coercion.

Child rearing is always an economic issue. People have to decide if they are willing to stretch their money to the point of raising a child. It can be tough and most people don't regret having children, even ones who never go on welfare. If AOC doesn't want kids I think most of us Wouid laud her decision.

It's a moral issue which she knows nothing about. Going on in her present condition she will go into a lost eternity. Repent, own you are a guilty sinner, and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personnel savour. That is your only hope, that is your only way to heaven when you die. "Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners."

How about this AOC? Maybe women should start taking responsibility for their bodies by using something called Birth Control? Maybe they could also stop being so promiscuous? There is no excuse for destroying unborn life. Not a single one. That life doesn't belong to us, it is a gift from God who happens to be watching all of this play out.

Same question here as #12. I'm not aware of anyone who has ever been "forced" to raise a child. Adoption is a wonderful option; there are couples who are unable to conceive children who would be thrilled to adopt a child to love and raise. But, based on the number of pregnancy centers who have been vandalized or worse, dems don't want that option to be considered. Babies can also be left at hospitals no questions asked and some fire stations accept babies. Abortion is NOT the only choice available to women who don't want to raise a child. Dems worship mammon; respect for the sanctity of life isn't even a consideration for them. $$$$$$ will always come first.

Who is forcing women to get pregnant in the first place? (conception by rape is very much an outlier). Just keep your legs shut. You cannot participate in the act that is sepcifically designed by Nature for the purpose of the continuation of the species, and then claim victimhood when the naturual process is "successul". Intellectually discombobulating to even attempt to portray this specific natural function of the females of the species as a "Curse and Rotten deal dealt to women and females of other species" which must be forever resisted and fought against so that they can become more like males are! This is even more fraudulent when there is the option not to participate in the "procreative" act. But then women have always been self cnetred about having their cake and eating it too.

It's refreshing to see that abortion is no longer "healthcare" or an invisible ink, Constitutional issue. Now it's economics. Next month it will be a national security issue. Then a climate issue . . . Because Democrats don't reason. They rationalize. Because that's the only way to find support for an irrational system of beliefs.

She's brilliant! She figured out what every parent knows, and she doesn't even have kids! Did she carry around one of those dolls in high school that ratted the student out if they didn't change the diaper on time? Yes, we know having a child 'conscripts' you. Every exhausted parent knows this. Don't want to get drafted into parenthood? Keep your knees together. Otherwise, no child should die because you want to dodge the parenthood draft.

AOC is disgusting on so many issues. Nothing shocks me about pro-abortion people anymore. But I am very curious that with all the information, all the evidence of the grotesque acts of abortion, these people are unmoved. All of the medical imaging technologies that show in very high detail, an unborn child, do not seem to register with these people. I don't know if AOC has shared her spiritual beliefs. Some pro-abortion people claim to be religious (I don't know how you square abortion with the idea of spirituality or an afterlife). Does the religious mass-abortionist believe that when he or she dies, he or she will be swept up into an all-welcoming embrace of God, thanking him or her for all the "good" that abortion provided? I consider myself spiritual, with a strong faith and this is a huge puzzle to me.

Former President Donald Trump railed against New York Attorney General Letitia James at a Michigan rally Saturday, accusing her of being “racist” as he and his family contend with a lawsuit from the prosecutor alleging “staggering” fraud. The $250 million lawsuit filed on Sept. 21 accuses the Trump Organization of vast fraud for allegedly falsely inflating his net worth by manipulating the value of some of his prized assets — including his numerous golf courses, hotels and homes. Trump, who has dismissed the suit as a “witch hunt,” blasted James for going after his company while violent crime surges in New York City at the rally at Macomb Community College in Warren.

Five men were arrested on June 17, 1972, while trying to bug the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters at the Watergate, a hotel and office building in Washington, D.C. A day later, Richard Nixon’s White House press secretary Ronald Ziegler famously called the Watergate break-in a “third-rate burglary.” More than two years later, on August 8, 1974, that “third-rate burglary” led to Nixon’s resignation. The lesson of the Watergate scandal: Sometimes, particularly in our nation’s Capital, these things take time to play out.

While testifying at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing called on by Democrats to discuss how restricting abortions can harm a woman’s life, a planned Parenthood physician Dr. Bhavik Kumar insisted that men can get pregnant and have babies. “Men can have pregnancies, especially trans men,” Kumar claimed, answering a question asked by Rep.

PS 111 on West 53rd Street normally has class sizes of 25 to 30. As the classes filled with newcomers, the school wound up sending 15 of the kids to nearby PS 51, where they were enrolled in “transitional bilingual” classes, according to a PS 111 insider.

Liliana Bakhtiari’s bio on the Atlanta City Council website touts her remarkable (at least to the woke) accomplishments. “Liliana is the first queer Muslim person to be elected in the state of Georgia, and the first nonbinary person elected in the city of Atlanta,” the bio states. “She identifies as gender fluid and uses ‘she/her’ and ‘they/them’ pronouns.” (Keep the whole pronoun thing in your mind. It’ll come in handy later.) Bakhtiari is the daughter of Iranian immigrants, which makes me think: I can’t imagine she’d be able

Members of a Vermont girls high school volleyball team have been banned from using their own locker room and now have to change in a single bathroom stall after they complained about a transgender teammate. Some teammates allege that the transgender player at Randolph Union High School made an 'inappropriate remark' to some of them while they were changing in the locker room. They now want the school to relocate the transgender player, who hasn't been named. No details of the alleged inappropriate remark have been shared. But Vermont's state law means that students can play sports and use the locker which correspond to the gender with which they identify.

The day after Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida, President Joe Biden issued his forecast: “This could be the deadliest hurricane in Florida’s history.” Was he hoping it would be? Or is he just ignorant of the history of hurricanes? “The numbers are still unclear,” Biden said, “but we’re hearing early reports of what could be substantial loss of life.” So far, the death toll in Florida from Ian is a little more than 20. That number will no doubt rise, but it is far short of the deadliest, and might be one of the least deadly hurricanes to hit that hurricane-prone state. The deadliest record was set in

A campaign adviser to Florida governor Ron DeSantis accused Vice President Kamala Harris of causing “undue panic” with her suggestion that Hurricane Ian–relief aid should be distributed “based on equity.” Harris said Friday that those in lower-income communities and people of color are “most impacted by these extreme conditions,” and “we are all thinking about the families in Florida and Puerto Rico with [Hurricane] Fiona and what we need to do to help them in terms of an immediate response and aid.” Speaking during the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum, she said: “We have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity,

It shouldn’t be shocking anymore to hear a woke political figure claim that men are capable of getting pregnant. Actually, it has become a common, yet not true, statement to hear. Unfortunately, this is what America has come to. While testifying at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing called on by Democrats to discuss how restricting abortions can harm a woman’s life, a planned Parenthood physician Dr. Bhavik Kumar insisted that men can get pregnant and have babies. “Men can have pregnancies, especially trans men,” Kumar claimed, answering a question asked by Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) asking if he believed biological men can get pregnant.

It's not just heating that could be missing across Europe this winter: cell phones may be the next to go. That's because if power cuts or energy rationing knocks out parts of the mobile networks across the region, mobile phones could go dark around Europe this winter according to the latest doomsday reporting from Reuters.While everyone knows by now that Europe's chances of rationing and power shortages have exploded ever since Moscow suspended gas supplies, in France, the situation is even worse as several nuclear power plants are shutting down for maintenance. And the cherry on top: telecom industry officials told Reuters they fear a severe winter will put Europe's

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Friday spoke about illegal immigrants and claimed Florida farmers needed them to pick crops, but her remarks drew much criticism. While speaking during a press conference, she did note the U.S. needed to secure the border, according to the New York Post. “Right now, the best thing that we can do for our economy is to have comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi said: (Tweet/Video) “We have a shortage of workers in our country and you see even in Florida some of the farmers and the growers saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north?

President Joe Biden banned cameras from his bill signing on Friday to name a Veterans Affairs clinic in memory of late Rep. Jackie Walorski who died last month. The move comes just two days after the president, 79, erroneously called out for Walorski at a speech in Washington on Wednesday. White House officials stumbled to spin the latest of the president's gaffes in the immediate aftermath, with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre saying that the Indiana congresswoman was just on the 'top' of Biden's mind because of the bill signing.

Bank of America analysts issued a report on Friday warning that America’s military support for Ukraine in the conflict with Russia has pushed United States military stockpiles to “dangerously low levels” not seen for decades. As part of $16.2 billion in support committed to Ukraine since Russia invaded in February, the Department of Defense (DoD) has sent approximately $8.4 billion worth of military equipment from its own weapons stockpiles through an authority known as “presidential drawdown.”(Snip)They forecasted that Raytheon Technologies (Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s employer before he become defense chief), Lockheed Martin, and General Dynamics are best positioned to benefit from the demands, given their experience in producing
