A former Senator is cautioning voters against voting for socialist candidate for U.S. Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s victory ‘seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party,” wrote Joe Lieberman, former Independent Senator from Connecticut in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.
He urged Democrats to vote for incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, whose name will still appear on the voting ballot in November though he lost the primary election.
“Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is a proud member of the Democratic Socialists of America, whose platform, like hers, is more Socialist than Democratic,” Lieberman wrote. “Her dreams of new federal spending would bankrupt the country or require very large tax increases, including on the working class.”
Lieberman cited Ocasio-Cortez’s “reflexive criticism of one of America’s great democratic allies (Israel),” as another reason to dump the 28-year-old candidate.
Ocasio-Cortez made a major gaff in an interview with PBS over the weekend.
“I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition,” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”
Kudos to the interviewer, who continued to push regarding Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “occupation of Palestine,” one rarely used outside of small circles of white liberals on college campuses.
“Oh, um… I think what I meant is, like, the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas, in places where, um, Palestinians are experiencing, um, difficulty and access to their housing and homes,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
BLP Passage Ends.
“If Democrats are to regain a majority, it will be by winning swing districts with sensible, mainstream candidates,” Lieberman wrote.
The political left seems to be over the honeymoon phase of Ocasio-Cortez’s meteoric rise, perhaps realizing that moving towards the center instead of the fringes is the better strategy. Even House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) distanced the party from Ocasio-Cortez.
“They made a choice in one district,” she said. “So let’s not get yourself carried away as an expert on demographics and the rest of that within the caucus or outside the caucus. We have an array of genders, generations, geography, and opinion in our caucus and we are very proud of that. The fact that in a very progressive district in New York it went more progressive—Joe Crowley is a progressive, but more to the left than Joe Crowley, is about that district. It is not to be viewed as something that stands for everything else.”
The Hill reported that several current Democrats in Congress are unhappy with Ocasio-Cortez for bashing Crowley on Twitter after he committed to endorsing her.
“She’s carrying on and she ain’t gonna make friends that way,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ). “Joe conceded, wished her well, said he would support her … so she doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.” “She’s not asking my advice, [but] I would do it differently, rather than make enemies of people.”

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
