  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks Wednesday

"I said when Omar made her first comments about all about the Benjamin's, referring to Jews, in America, I said that that was worthy of condemning by name", he said. Take the word of USA representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who went on Yahoo News' Skullduggery podcast today to talk about, among other things, how an outrageous amount of power is concentrated in the hands of just a few large technology companies. Bernie Sanders just behind him.

"I'm very supportive of Bernie's run".

Summarizing the looming problem of dealing with concentrated tech power, Ocasio-Cortez noted the conventional wisdom that "Congress is fundamentally slow and technology is fundamentally fast". "I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is", said Ocasio-Cortez. She launched her presidential exploratory committee Dec 31, 2018 and officially announced she was running on February 9, 2019.

"I think so", Ocasio-Cortez responded.

Warren was the center of controversy a year ago when she released her DNA test results that showed she was only 1/1024 Native American after she made claims to aboriginal heritage when applying for a professorship.

Right-wing media empire Fox News referenced United States lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) 42 days in a row, according to research, for a total of 3,181 unique mentions, leading many to note an editorial "obsession" by the staunchly conservative news giant with the Democratic firebrand. She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has rebuffed overtures to meet with officials from some of Gotham's largest banks since taking office in January, a Fox Business report said Monday.

'I really don't know.

'I just want to be most useful, and I'm not trying to kind of impose some personal ambition.

Ocasio-Cortez said while she had started to "impose little rules" about her social media use - like curtailing her consumption of content on weekends - she still writes her own Twitter and Instagram posts, both platforms where her followers exceed 3 million people. "I don't have like a ten year plan or a five year plan or anything".
