The evil Republicans are simply beyond contempt:

How Dare Republicans Make Us Vote On The “Abolish ICE” Bill, Say Democrats Who Wrote The “Abolish ICE” Bill

What this means is most Dem politicians realize "Abolish ICE" is a loser at the state and national level and even most Congressional districts.

You wonder if their kook base realizes it. Octavia-Cortez won on an anti-ICE platform but that was a primary without only 20% voter participation. :lol:

And her election was in a Democratic primary, in a Democratic district, and as you pointed out, with a low turnout.

Her message played out well enough in her district primary.
That message ain’t gonna work for incumbent Democrat Senators in the red states that Trump carried in 2016.
And it ain’t gonna work in many other places across the nation.

A 5 term incumbent Democrat Senator from an overwhelming Democrat state, fails to win her own party's endorsement:

Quote:
California Democrats endorse de León for US Senate race, snubbing Feinstein

https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-go ... 13325.html


Feinstein only managed to get 7% of the ballots cast by the CA Democratic board members.

Will this increase the changes a Republican can win?
Hardly.

The man (Kevin de Leon) they endorsed is further to the left then the described "moderate Feinstein.

Ocasio-Cortez embarrases herself again:



'Unemployment is low because everyone is working 2 jobs' :roll:

Seems an embarrassing statement to make when you consider that She graduated fourth in her class[16] from Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in economics and international relations

It would be cute if she was an 8 year old. Which is what she looks like next to Margaret Hoover. :)

I still like her, though. Trump should hire her during his next term. Or put her on The Apprentice: Post PotUS.

As for embarrassment; Trump European tour was one awkward embarrassment after another. :roll:

I don't know, thought the Queen handled herself pretty well.

But you think otherwise, shame.

Her campaign positions (per Wikipedia):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandri ... _positions

Quote:
Political positions
Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described democratic socialist.[68] She supports progressive policies such as Medicare for All, a job guarantee,[69] tuition-free public college, ending the privatization of prisons, and enacting gun-control policies.[70]

Education
Ocasio-Cortez campaigned in favor of tuition-free universities and public schools,[71] saying that "[f]or the cost of the GOP’s tax bill, we could forgive ALL the student loan debt in the United States."[71][72]

The environment
Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described hardliner on climate issues. She advocates for the United States to transition by 2035 to an electrical grid running on 100% renewable-energy production and end the use of fossil fuels. She also calls for a Green New Deal in the United States, in which the federal government would invest in the construction of large-scale green-infrastructure projects.[73]

Healthcare
Ocasio-Cortez supports transitioning to a single-payer healthcare system, calling healthcare "a human right".[74][71] She says that a single government insurer should ensure that every American has insurance, while reducing costs overall.[69] On her campaign website, Ocasio-Cortez says "Almost every other developed nation in the world has universal healthcare. It's time the United States catch up to the rest of the world in ensuring all people have real healthcare coverage that doesn't break the bank."[71]

Immigration
Ocasio-Cortez supports abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), calling it "a product of the Bush-era Patriot Act suite of legislation" and "an enforcement agency that takes on more of a paramilitary tone every single day".[75] She has called immigration detention centers operated by the Department of Homeland Security "black sites", citing limited public access to those locations.[76] Two days before the primary election, Ocasio-Cortez attended a protest at an ICE child-detention center in Tornillo, Texas.[77] She supports a "path to citizenship" for immigrants who entered the United States legally and illegally.[78][79]

Impeachment of President Trump
On June 28, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez told CNN she would support the impeachment of President Trump, saying, "I think that, you know, we have the grounds to do it." She cited Trump's violations of the Emoluments Clause.[80][81]

Israeli–Palestinian conflict
After 60 Palestinian protesters participating in the violent 2018 Gaza border protests were killed on May 14, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez criticized the Israel Defense Forces' use of deadly force,[82] tweeting, "This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can't be silent about this anymore."[83] In a subsequent interview, she said, "The idea that we are not supposed to talk about people dying when they are engaging in political expression just really moved me", and noted that many constituents, including Jewish Americans, had thanked her for taking that position.[84] In an interview with the PBS series Firing Line, Ocasio-Cortez clarified that she is "a proponent of a two-state solution."[85]

After her primary victory, J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami expressed his support for "a new generation of candidates who are more outspoken about their opposition to the policies of Netanyahu’s far-right coalition and are eager to see the US play a more constructive role in making life better for both Israelis and Palestinians".[86]

Puerto Rico
Ocasio-Cortez calls for "solidarity with Puerto Rico." She has advocated for granting Puerto Ricans further civil rights, regardless of Puerto Rico's legal classification. She also advocates for both voting rights and disaster relief. Ocasio-Cortez was critical of FEMA's response to Hurricane Maria and the federal government's unwillingness to address Puerto Rico's political status.[87] She believes the federal government should increase investment in Puerto Rico.[70]

Social issues
Ocasio-Cortez is supportive of the LGBT community, thanking its members for their role in her grassroots campaign.[88][70] She spoke at a Black Lives Matter rally in 2017.[89]
