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.

OH…MY…GOOD…NESS!!

Then-GOP nominee Donald Trump was giving a speech. Then-Congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib was in attendance at the event. She. Went. Bananas. Bonkers. Wild. Crazy. Nutso. SEE IT: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1152711615877398528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152711615877398528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-video-emerges-of-screaming-rashida-tlaib-escorted-out-of-trump-rally-watch%2F Yeah.

If she’s not wearing the Palestinian flag or meeting with anti-Israel activists she’s introducing articles of impeachment against Trump. If she’s not caught on video saying “impeach that motherf*****” Trump, she’s claiming all members of her party are racist. It’s kind of never-ending with this one. Now, Tlaib is saying she’ll go on a hunger strike in order to get ICE to “shut down.” Oh, and she wants her fans to follow her lead. From Free Beacon: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress. Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border. Tlaib noted, “It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress.” She added, “I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.” Concluding, “I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these other things, going to the border, and I plan…

BUSTED! Video Resurfaces Of Pelosi Saying ‘We Certainly Don’t’ Need More Undocumented

Oh, is that right?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them. See for yourself: https://twitter.com/IWV/status/1152186873252651014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152186873252651014&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-surfaces-showing-hypocrite-pelosi-sounding-a-lot-like-trump%2F Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats. She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” https://twitter.com/joshjame/status/1147615395018354688?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147615395018354688&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/RobertGeist/status/1147663330049515526?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1147663330049515526&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F07%2F06%2Fgavel-drop-nancy-pelosi-says-the-freshman-four-have-their-twitter-world-and-just-four-votes%2F Do we still do the mic drop thing?

She ain’t scared and is an impressive leader. She missed a chance to negotiate a lot of legislation by dealing with him.
