Anti-Israel Socialist Defeats Powerful Democratic NY Congressman In Primary Upset

Queens party boss Joe Crowley loses Democratic primary to Bernie organizer Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in stunning upset

Queens party boss Joe Crowley loses Democratic primary to Bernie organizer Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in stunning upset

"That fact that in a very progressive district in NY went more...to the left than Joe Crowley is about that district". Since it was his first primary challenge since 2004, some analysts likened this election to a boxing match of a fighter who had not entered the ring for a very long time.

Others in the party, like rising star Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., simply blamed the unpredictable nature of elections. "Not only would she be the youngest female ever elected to Congress, she'd also be the first member of Congress that talks like Cardi B".

Trump got more good news elsewhere in New York City as Grimm failed in his political comeback attempt at the hands of the Trump-backed incumbent Donovan.

All three young upstarts support Medicare for All and decriminalizing weed.

If Ocasio-Cortez did turn out new voters, it wasn't reflected in the overall turnout in the district, which was just 12 percent, barely higher than the citywide average.

Picking candidates tuned to the district is what a winning party does. But these challengers can, in many ways, already declare victory. "We've got people, they've got money".

Pelosi defended her slot at the top of the party Wednesday at a news conference in the Capitol. Bernie Sanders during his run for the 2016 presidential primary. Citing the congresswoman's 2012 comments about the potential (and completely fake) link between vaccines and autism, Patel's campaign sent a mailer with photos of Maloney and anti-vaxxer Jenny McCarthy.

"The biggest hurdle that our communities have is cynicism-saying it's a done deal, who cares, there's no point to voting", Ocasio-Cortez told volunteers in the lead-up to election day.

LeBron James could stay in Cleveland, but return is murky
Bleacher Report made the prediction that both players will sign in L.A.in their latest free agency predictions. It's obvious that the relationship between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James became strained at one point in time.

And while many Ocasio-Cortez supporters criticized media coverage, many had love for Crowley's handling of the loss, including his dedication of a "Born to Run" cover to Ocasio-Cortez.

"Everyone has all their analysis within hours of the election taking place", said Pelosi, who was the first female speaker in U.S. history and has said she'll seek the job again if Democrats retake the House in the fall.

She faces Republican Anthony Pappas in the November midterms. That includes putting an end to private prisons and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). "We can do it now".

Ocasio-Cortez says her first goal, if elected to the House (an nearly sure thing), is to introduce legislation abolishing ICE, a bridge too far for even Bernie, but a romanticized goal among the online far-left monster given life by Dr. Bernie Frankenstein. When Lynch was the U.S. Attorney, she did nothing to crack down the corrupt court system even though the problems were well known to just about anyone active in NY politics.

Sanders was elated on Wednesday after what transpired the previous evening in NY, and also in Maryland, where Ben Jealous, a progressive who previously chaired the NAACP, had won the Democratic primary for governor by more than 10 percentage points.

"I think that some of the issues we even have today may have to do with some of the calcified structures and relationships", she said.

After graduating, she returned to the Bronx where she became a community organizer.

The de-evolution of the Democratic party should be a concern to all of us, and not just the Pelosis of the country, who will soon enough be fighting for their own seats in Congress.
