Jennifer Rubin: How Democrats should respond to Ocasio-Cortez

"It is a policy of dehumanizing", said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., one of four high-profile Democratic freshmen who testified.

Things further escalated Friday night when the official Twitter account for the House Democratic caucus singled out a tweet Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, wrote on June 27 criticizing Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kansas), one of the first two Native American women to serve in Congress, for supporting the border bill. "She is not a racist", he said of the speaker, who rarely hides her contempt for the president and certainly was not seeking his support.

Ocasio-Cortez replied, "No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not".

"But the persistent singling out ... it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful ... the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color", she added.

The row comes amid accusations by AOC and by other freshman democrats, namely: Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of MA. "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world", she told columnist Maureen Dowd. "They're four people and that's how many votes they got", she said.

You see, despite her Tweeted attempt on Tuesday to blame Republicans for not understanding a simple matter of two women who "happen to disagree", AOC was directly going after Pelosi.

The House speaker declined to elaborate but confirmed she recently talked about an "offensive tweet" at the request of her caucus members. "In a now-deleted tweet, Chakrabarti compared centrist Democrats to old, racist, southern Democrats". She should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect.

Iran has said its breaches of the nuclear pact can be reversed if the other parties to the agreement - Germany, France, Britain, China, Russia and the European Union - can come up with enough economic incentives to effectively offset the American sanctions. Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN that she does not believe Ocasio-Cortez's criticism of the speaker is "correct".

Pelosi is right in one regard: that Democrats' "diversity is their strength". "Unity is our power".

During an interview on Huntsville, AL radio's WVNN, Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL), the chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, laid out how the rise of Ocasio-Cortez is problematic for Pelosi as a well-funded Ocasio-Cortez is recruiting candidates to primary Pelosi loyalists and sabotaging Pelosi-led legislative efforts.

"On the floor, the bill has taken a radical left turn", said Texas Rep. Mac Thornberry, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee.

"Brent can win, he can win", Ocasio-Cortez said past year on The Dig, a podcast from far-left Jacobin magazine, according to The Intercept. The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the USA from Mexico has surged above 100,000 monthly since March, overwhelming federal agencies' ability to detain them in sanitary conditions and highlighting the issue as the 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns are in their early stages.
