Ocasio Cortez Involved in “Close Door Fight” on Capitol Hill

Cortez and controversy are a match made in progressive heaven, apparently.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

With the class of the 2018 midterms set to descend upon Capitol Hill in earnest in the coming weeks, there are a few notable new faces set to grace the Beltway.

Of course, one of the most prominent of the new wave of congresswomen is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – a young democratic socialist from New York City, who has been a controversial figure like no other during the midterm elections.

Now that Cortez has finally made it to Washington, (after a silly mishap with finding an apartment to rent in DC), it seems as though her reputation for combative absurdity has come along for the ride.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly involved in a “closed-door fight” on Thursday with Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ), a top Democratic official, demanding that the party move even further left on climate change and create a special panel for the issue.

“New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, incoming chairman of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee — backed by a number of other committee members — slammed the creation of the new climate panel,” Politico reported. “Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.”

Cortez has long been a stanch believer in man made climate change, using her Twitter soapbox to make alarming suggestions that we could have less than a decade until “cataclysm” occurs.

When pressed on the subject, Cortez has learned a thing or two from her fellow democrats, and is simply denying that the fight occurred at all.

Regarding the fight that broke out, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez told Politico, “We’re not going to comment on the internal discussions of a meeting.”

Immediately following the statement from her spokesperson, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “This is completely false – I never even have a direct interaction with him today. When did Politico turn into TMZ?”

Cortez was famous on the campaign trail for her off-the-rails rhetoric and bizarre insinuations…many of which lead to moments of sheer bewilderment for political observers.

Fox News: More Than 600K Illegal Immigrants Have Been Released by Biden Admin

According to a Fox News report, the Biden admin. has released more than 600,000 illegal aliens into the U.S. since he took office.

According to a Fox News report, the Biden admin. has released more than 600,000 illegal aliens into the U.S. since he took office.

For a comparison, it appears that Joe Biden has released more illegals than the population of two U.S. states. Wyoming only has 578,759 citizens, and Vermont has 623,989.

Last week, Sen. Ron Jonson said that Biden’s administration is flat out lying about the numbers of illegals that are streaming into the U.S. Johnson said that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas lied about how many of the 1.3 million illegals that have streamed across the border since January have been deported back to their home countries.

”You know, I gave him questions for the record, which he didn’t respond to. And so, you’re coming into hearings yesterday in the Senate, today in the House, you’ve got to know that you’re going to be asked that question,” Johnson told Newsmax on Sept. 22. ”How could you not come prepared with that basic information?”

”They know the number,” Johnson added. ”They don’t want the American people [to] know the number, because the American people would be shocked. During his last appearance, I just did the back of an envelope count, calculation. I figured, probably about 600,000 people will be dispersed all over this country this year.”

”And again, that’s while they still have the Title 42 powers in place to return a lot of those individuals. So, 600,000 people. That’s a number larger than the population of Wyoming. And so they don’t want people to know that because there’s still denying that this is a crisis,” the Sen. said.

Joe Biden Claims ‘Trillionaires’ Aren’t Paying Enough Taxes, But there Are No U.S. Trillionaires

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday even though there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday who he says aren’t paying enough taxes, but — fact check, Joe — there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

“I’m running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows,” Biden said during a presser. “I’m tired of trickle-down. Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well. You all report it.”

It is also unclear what Joe thinks he’s “running” for, unless he has forgotten that he has been crowed president of the United States.

Aside from that, though, even America’s richest person, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, is a mere multi-billionaire with a net worth of $177 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

Per Breitbart News:

The president spoke about raising taxes on the wealthy after an event promoting coronavirus vaccine booster shots at the White House.

He claimed his policies for a permanent childcare tax credit were not costing the government any money.

“It’s not,” Biden said. “It’s reducing taxes, reducing taxes, not increasing taxes.”

He again pressed the issue of taxes as a moral issue, noting corporations were not paying enough.

“I just think it’s about just paying your fair share,’ he said, adding that it was “just wrong.”

Apparently, Biden doesn’t know who earns what in the U.S. Indeed, his plan would be just another broken campaign promise because it raises taxes on people making under $400,000 a year, something he said he would not do.
