CAT FIGHT! Ocasio-Cortez Goes to War With Democrat Senator, & She’s Losing Big

Have to be careful. You might hurt Alexandria’s feelings.

Outgoing Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill (MO) isn’t Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s biggest fan.

Claire, like dozens and dozens of millions of Americans, believes AOC’s policies are too far left.

She also says that since AOC, a self-proclaimed Democrat Socialist, is so far left, she’s causing people to flee the Democrat Party.

Alexandria isn’t pleased.

McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat who’s in her final days in office after losing her bid for a third Senate term, told CNN in a wide-ranging interview that her party must begin to focus and deliver on real issues to attract independent and white working class voters — not pie-in-the-sky policy ideas, such as tuition-free college, that have little chance of becoming law. Her concern: Voters grow cynical after hearing campaign promises that never go anywhere, empowering forces like President Donald Trump to rail against Washington for failed promises, as he did in 2016.

Democrats, she suggested, should be cautious about the rise of politicians like the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, who vanquished a Democratic leader, Joe Crowley, in her primary, and have vowed sweeping changes in policy.

McCaskill: “I don’t know her. I’m a little confused why she’s the thing. But it’s a good example of what I’m talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman.

And so she’s now talked about a lot. I’m not sure what she’s done yet to generate that kind of enthusiasm, but I wish her well. I hope she hangs the moon.

But I hope she also realizes that the parts of the country that are rejecting the Democratic Party, like a whole lot of white working class voters, need to hear about how their work is going to be respected, and the dignity of their jobs, and how we can really stick to issues that we can actually accomplish something on.

More McCaskill on “what’s her name” Ocasio-Cortez:

From Daily Wire:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) warned against nominating “far-left” Democrats like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week, saying that candidates like her “have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to” their political views.

McCaskill made the remarks while appearing on a Thursday podcast with The New York Times where she blamed her loss on “irritating” pro-abortion activists and also warned against nominating far-left Democrats.

McCaskill: “What’s her name, [the one] everybody’s fascinated with from New York? I hope she listens to people who defeated Republicans because it’s the people who defeated Republicans in this election that we need to be emulating. Not the people who defeated Democrats in primaries” in deep blue districts.

They’re so passionate about their beliefs they feel if everyone would just be more pure, more people would come to the cause, and many of them have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to that concept. And so, I just want to make sure that we don’t make a mistake and go so far to the left in nominating a candidate that we lose all those white working-class voters that have been a huge part of our party decades ago.

We have an opportunity in 2020 as long as we don’t go so far-left off the side of the earth that we alienate those people that, when they hear the word ‘free college,’ they hear that phrase, they think, ‘Oh, look, they’re giving away something to other people besides me again. I had to earn mine. Why aren’t they having to earn theirs?’ That thing is real. Sometimes, going too far, we turn off people and make election victories impossible.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld has some thoughts on Alexandria:

This is what happens when you run on slogans and know nothing about actual policy or how things work.

Check out AOC’s tweet on “death panels”…

Then see how quickly she gets destroyed…

Hikers Find Abandoned Puppy, Then Get HUGE Surprise

Americans are animal lovers, by and large, and stories of our unique relationship with these creatures has been well documented in the past. As a nation of explorers and farmers, we have spent centuries in the presence of animals; from livestock to lapdogs, and venison to vermin.  Of the myriad creatures that we interact with on a regular basis, nothing is more iconic than the dog.  After all, this is an animal whose very existence stems from the influence of the human species on the wolf species some 10,000 years ago. Dogs are no longer the wild creatures that their ancestors were, and, as such, hold a special place in our collective heart.  That’s why a group of hikers in California couldn’t resist an opportunity to help a young pup with they found her abandoned on their walk. Now, however, they have a whole different story to tell. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the man was walking his dog when he spotted what he thought was an abandoned puppy. The hiker picked the animal up and took it home, where he called the San Diego Humane Society. Wildlife officers then went to the man’s home, where they examined the animal. “Our Humane Officers recently received a call about an abandoned puppy in a canyon in Tierrasanta. To their surprise, the little creature was actually a coyote pup!” explained the San Diego Humane Society, in a Facebook post. “The officers took the adorable pup to Project Wildlife for care before being transferred to The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center.” The tiny canid is now in good hands. Rehabilitation is ongoing and, despite some challenges, wildlife experts are hopeful that this young coyote can be released back into the wild at an appropriate time.

Liz Warren, Lagging in Polls and Cash, Offers Up Hail Mary on Student Loan Debt

Liz Warren’s campaign isn’t going according to plan, and this latest diatribe has her snatching at millennial voters in desperation.

The democratic field for 2020 is already enormous, with no fewer than 20 candidates on the dance floor. And while it may look as though all of these liberal politicos are dancing to the same tune, we are beginning to see a few candidates attempting to distance themselves from the rest. Somewhat predictably, the policy positions that would be most helpful in distinguishing these candidates are also the most radical.  Similar, the candidates who are espousing them are all the one who are struggling to stand out in the crowded field. Liz Warren, who entered the presidential race earlier than many, has routinely been looking to manufacture this sort of “breakthrough” moment in the campaign.  Her first foray into this field was a farcical video broadcast from her kitchen, while drinking a beer and cooking dinner.   The only issue was who phony and staged the entire thing felt, from the undoubted use of professional lighting to the mental tick Warren had about keeping the label of her beer bottle from facing the camera.  (We wouldn’t want to alienate the Coors drinkers in Miller country, after all). Now, as Warren’s campaign admits to recent fundraising struggles, a bold new strategy is emerging for the dwindling democrat. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has identified something else to finance with her proposed wealth tax: wiping out student debt and tuition at public colleges. The Massachusetts senator, who has raced ahead of her 2020 rivals with detailed plans to rearrange America’s economic priorities, unveiled on Monday her proposal for easing access to higher education. It would: Spend $1.25 trillion over 10 years to eliminate up to $50,000 in student debt for those with household incomes under $100,000 Allow states to make public colleges tuition-free Spend $100 billion on expanded Pell grants to defray…
