AOC Again Vows To Push Biden Further Left, Says Dems Need To Win Senate To Avoid Being Bipartisan

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) again vowed to push Joe Biden further to the left should he win the election and added Democrats need to retake the Senate to avoid the burden of having to govern in a bipartisan fashion.

AOC, known as one of the more vociferous voices in the far-left element of the Democrat party, made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

In the segment, the ‘Squad’ leader dismissed bipartisanship as little more than “Republican manipulation.”

She hinted that the 2020 election could be a “once-in-a-generation opportunity to have the White House, the Senate, and the House majorities Democratically-controlled.”

“We have an obligation to the American people to show what a Democratic administration can actually accomplish,” claimed Ocasio-Cortez.

She went on to suggest her party needs to demonstrate to the American people “that we can govern” and do so as “a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship.”

AOC Scoffs at the Idea of Governing in a Bipartisan Manner

So much for the notion of reaching across the aisle. But then, was there any doubt that the fringe elements in the Democrat party plan a full-on takeover should they be voted in?

This is, after all, the same group that forced Democrats into conducting the first partisan impeachment in the nation’s history.

Also of little surprise, but noteworthy for voters, is that AOC has again telegraphed to the entire nation that she and her band of merry progressives plan on pushing Biden as far left as they possibly can.

“Frankly, I think it would be a privilege and it would be a luxury for us to be talking about what we would lobby the next Democratic – and how we will push the next Democratic administration,” she said.

AOC suggested progressives are “the base of the Democratic Party” and she will play a role in pushing Biden to accept their agenda.

“Is my job to push the Democratic Party? Absolutely,” she added. “And that has been a part of my role since I have been elected.”

AOC Will Push Biden Left, Can’t Say She’ll Definitively Back Pelosi For Speaker

Earlier this month, the Working Families Party and all four members of the ‘Squad’ unveiled an agenda designed to push Biden to the far-left should he win the presidency.

Known as the “People’s Charter,” the plan seeks universal health care, re-allocation of resources away from policing, canceling student debt, and advancing the tenets behind the Green New Deal.

AOC has previously expressed confidence that she can push Biden as far left as possible, implementing policies such as the Green New Deal which has a price tag in the trillions.

In the interview with Tapper, Ocasio-Cortez also seemed to be gearing up for a fight with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

When asked if she could commit to supporting Pelosi as Speaker again, she hedged.

“I believe that we have to see those races as they come, see what candidates are there. I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there.” she replied.

“But, if Speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate, then I will be supporting her.”

Is AOC simply biding her time, ready for a takeover of the entire party should they sweep their way to victory?

Ayanna Pressley Compares Trump’s Coronavirus Response To ‘War Crimes’

Ayanna Pressley, Democrat Representative from Massachusettes and proud Squad member, believes President Trump’s response to the coronavirus is “akin to war crimes.”

Pressley made the remarks during a virtual press conference on Facebook, a social media entity that at least pretends they’re cracking down on misinformation.

“As far as I’m concerned what’s happening with this administration, it’s akin to war crimes,” the wildly misinformed congresswoman stated. “Criminal negligence, science denial, a sluggish response.”

Her statement leaves little doubt that the radical left truly does believe that Trump is responsible for the deaths of those who succumbed to a virus that originated in China.

How mind-numbingly low can they possibly sink?

All They Have Is Insane Rhetoric

Pressley went on to suggest now is the time to capitalize on the pandemic and implement their radical agenda.

“We find ourselves in the position of playing catch up in the midst of a pandemic,” she said, seemingly unaware that the curve has been successfully flattened in most parts of the country. “Which is the last place you want to be in the midst of any public health crisis — certainly not a pandemic — is working from behind.”

“And we just have to reject any calls for a return to normal because that normal was what was slowly killing people,” she concluded.

Ignorance Is a Crime

If a sluggish response is ‘akin to a war crime’ then the Democrat party has a lot of blood on their own hands.

While the resistance party was plotting impeachment for months, President Trump was setting up a coronavirus task force, ordering more testing and ventilators, restricting travel from countries known to be battling the virus, and declaring a national emergency.

Well after all of these actions had been taken, Pressley declined to attend Trump’s State of the Union address – in which he warned about the pending coronavirus crisis!

That is negligence.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted that the Democrats’ impeachment sham “diverted the attention of the government” away from focusing on important matters at hand.

That didn’t stop the President from saving lives, as Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said the travel ban did.

“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States,” Fauci said.

Any idea what Pressley and the Democrats were doing then?

They were actively pursuing the ‘No Ban Act‘ which was designed to restrict the President’s authority in implementing new travel bans.

They were trying to prevent the President of the United States from saving lives during a pandemic.

Which of these people sound more like they’ve taken actions “akin to war crimes”?
