Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., blamed a member of her staff for not paying the "several thousands of dollars' worth of goods and services" for her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala. The House Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) opened an investigation into whether Ocasio-Cortez violated House rules by improperly accepting gifts at the Met Gala, but the congresswoman claimed she was unaware and proceeded to let a staff member take the blame. While speaking to investigators, Ocasio-Cortez said that she was unaware of unpaid expenses related to the dress she wore and stylists that helped her get ready for the Met Gala in 2021.

she has since paid the "Rental value" of the custom couture, one of a kind designer dress, made just for her....Uhmmm...did her millionaire boy-toy pay for his designer shoes and bowtie...or just return them? The BIG problem is that she was used to living on tip-jar money, suddenly put into control of $millions, and just had "The Help" do everything, all she worried about was her next society page appearance(even when that was supposedly a News Show).

Yes! Yes - - it was those darn "staffers"! My cousin's friend's car was sideswiped - - and of course - - it was done by a "staffer." And a month ago someone tried to cut in front of me on a Line at CVS - - and yes - - that was a "staffer" too. You just can't trust a "staffer" - - they're always up to nothing good.

Was the Met Gala an official Congress related or election related fund raising event for AOC? If not, it was a personal event. As a personal event, there is no reason why a government paid , or campaign paid "staffer" should be responsible to have to deal with AOC's expenses related to the event. Staff is for Congressional or campaign related things. The Met Gala was neither of those things. Sure, AOC was there to make a political statement with her painted white designer dress and to be seen with her cool uber liberal friends. The bills are AOC s responsibility and she is only mad that she got caught. Accept personal responsibility for something for once!

I’m sure her ‘underling’ had nothing to do with it. I bet she couldn’t show a shred of documentation where anyone other than herself was responsible, or even knowledgeable of what she was doing for herself.

AOC certainly learned well from the women who went before her. As far as I know, Hillary still has outstanding bills from her 2016 campaign. No doubt AOC never had any intention of paying for that dress.

Jim Banks Leads House GOP Crusade Against Wokeism 1 reply
Posted by Moritz55 3/5/2023 2:14:05 AM Post Reply
At a time when Republicans are increasingly asserting themselves in battles over a coterie of acronyms that have captured the commanding heights of American society – ESG, DEI, and CRT – Rep. Jim Banks has emerged as a leader in the GOP-controlled House of the fight against the “wokeism” these theories collectively represent. A fourth-term congressman from Indiana, Banks has earned his anti-woke bona fides by engaging in high-profile clashes with military officials over their embrace of “anti-racist” literature and related initiatives, the Chamber of Commerce over issues ranging from woke capitalism to China, and Twitter over his “misgendering” of Assistant Secretary for Health Admiral Rachel Levine.

The need for America to re-affirm the First Amendment and its principles has once again been underscored by the recent findings coming out about the origins and impact of the coronavirus. The most important problem we have as a society is not misinformation but the suppression of non-conforming opinions that often (but not always) turn out to be true. Americans sense this already. They are concerned about what tech companies have been doing to censor content, with 61% of voters in a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll believing that the government and tech companies worked together to enforce political censorship.

Proud of her efforts that resulted in the potential loss of tens of thousands of jobs, Rep.

Unfortunately for Ron DeSantis, expectations of him could not be higher. For a critical mass of Republicans seeking to move past Donald Trump, the Florida governor is already the anointed savior. While Trump still holds the lead in most polling, DeSantis is almost always second choice and is the favorite for many Republicans who want a new standard bearer because they believe Trump can’t win. Though he has not yet launched a campaign, and his allies say he would not until the state legislature completes its session in May, DeSantis definitely wants us all to think he will soon be a presidential candidate.

The Washington Elementary School District, which serves students in the Phoenix and Glendale areas, had an ongoing contract with Arizona Christian University for five years, enabling their student teachers to be placed in its schools for field experience. The contract opened up opportunities for recruitment and hiring. On Feb. 23, the board agreed on a motion to dissolve the partnership with the Christian university.

After nearly a year, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann once again argued on Wednesday that the easiest solution to push back against Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., would be to move Disney World to another state. The tweet came two days after DeSantis signed a bill into law that officially revoked Disney’s previous self-governing power over the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the district where Disney World is located. The bill put the district under the control of a state board of term-limited members recently announced by DeSantis. In response to this move, Olbermann insisted that Disney should fire back by moving its massive park and "burning" the remains.

Just over a year ago, Chancellor Olaf Scholz gave a speech to the German parliament that is likely to define his chancellorship — and he was barely two months into it. The "Zeitenwende" speech (literally "turning of the times"), a response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, was built on the announcement that the German military would receive a special one-off fund of €100 billion to be upgraded. On June 3, the center-right opposition in the Bundestag joined forces with the ruling parties to change the constitution and allow the additional debt — an unprecedented occurrence in the history of the Federal Republic. Since then, Scholz's center-left coalition has been dogged by broadsides

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are at risk of having their royal titles challenged if one lawmaker has his way. Following the couple’s release of their six-part Netflix documentary in December, Bob Seely, a Conservative Member of the U.K. Parliament, announced he would try to introduce a bill to strip the couple of their royal titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Jonathan Sacerdoti, a British broadcaster and royal commentator, told Fox News Digital the 56-year-old is adamant about moving forward with his plans.

In 2021, homicides in Chicago rose to their highest numbers in 25 years, outpacing other crime-ridden cities like New York City and Los Angeles. Throughout her tenure, the mayor has been blasted for her poor relationship with law enforcement, as the city's police department lost a significant number of officers in recent years amid the rise in crime.

Attorney General Merrick Garland made an unannounced trip to Ukraine on Friday, according to a Justice Department official, his second trip to the country after Russia invaded a little more than a year ago. The trip was not announced for security reasons, the official said. Garland was invited to Lviv by the Ukrainian prosecutor general, the official said, and joined President Volodymyr Zelensky at the "United for Justice Conference." The official added that Garland "held several meetings and reaffirmed our determination to hold Russia accountable for crimes committed in its unjust and unprovoked invasion against its sovereign neighbor."

Host Bill Maher asked, “I hear you all the time say, the rich don’t pay their fair share. Now, maybe that’s true of those three guys you mentioned [Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos], they are pretty rich. But, I guess I’m not very rich, but I pay more than half. California is 13.3% and the federal is 37% for people who make over 250k…and then there [are] the state and local and property taxes.

We’ve seen that Democrats don’t seem to understand some of the basic principles of the Constitution. Or perhaps, more accurately, don’t seem to care about complying with it. We’ve also seen that they don’t understand that Joe Biden isn’t king. He doesn’t get to declare, by unilateral fiat, the cancellation of student debt. That’s not within his Constitutional power, no matter what Democratic politicians may think. But they wanted to do it to pay off their base for their votes. So, they threw a tantrum on the steps of the Supreme Court. All they understand is that they should get to do what they want to hold onto their control.
