Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made history this midterm election cycle, becoming the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Now, the lawmaker is making headlines for highlighting the racism and sexism she says has been at play during her first days on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez was on her way to a member luncheon in Washington, D.C., when someone directed her to an event being held at the same time for the spouses of elected Democrats. “I was sent to the spouse event,” she wrote on Twitter. The congresswoman added that she was also stopped because someone

When I saw that quote in stories yesterday, about how she "was sent to the spouse or intern event," it sounded like a pre-written byte, ready to go with her whine of the day. It doesn´t sound real. It reminds me of Sir Edmund, who thought using plants during her speaking engagements, who would stand up and say, "iron my shirt," would score points with prospective voters. Nobody talks like that, lives like that, or cares for things like that. It´s so last century. Ditto, to the Occasional Cortex and her constant prattling.

First, I seriously doubt that this even happened. Second, if it did, it wasn´t racism or sexism. It was a mistake. When you´re looking for prejudice, you see it everywhere. She has vastly overestimated her own importance. Rookie mistake. But she´s not there to learn or to serve. She´s there to agitate and overthrow.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – A special tribute to fallen officers is on display at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. They installed a Christmas tree with 137 blue ornaments to represent the 137 officers killed in the line of duty this year, including Boone County’s own Deputy Jacob Pickett. “It means a lot to all of us – we were all very close. He was a wonderful officer, and it’s our way of honoring him and the other 136 officers that have been killed this year,” said Mike Gideon, Boone County Senior Dispatch Officer.

Before she blocked me on Twitter, I frequently read the posts of Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as tweets from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the chief financial backer of Watts’ organization. Combined, the two gun control groups stand front and center in America’s anti-gun cult, with 4 million members, which is about on par with the membership of the National Rifle Association. It’s alarming how frequently Watts manipulates data to craft a narrative that America is held hostage to

Fired former FBI director James Comey is at it again. Last week, Comey testified before members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. In a single appearance, Comey, on 245 separate occasions, while under oath, stonewalled questions with “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall,” according to a congressional interrogator, Rep. Jim Jordan. (R-Ohio). If any private citizen tried Comey’s gambit with federal IRS auditors or FBI investigators, he would likely be indicted for perjury or obstruction. Why did Comey, the nation’s former top-ranking federal investigator, avoid

The subheadline in the Daily Mail said it all, "A tearful Cohen pushed back at President Trump for calling him ´weak.´" What a dork. He was Donald John Trump´s private attorney for many years, but when the heat was on for Cohen´s non-Trump activities, Cohen sold the president out for a plea bargain. And Bungling Bob Mueller failed to keep his end of deal. The judge gave Cohen a three-year sentence.

The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
