Progressive Democrat and freshman Congresswoman for New York's 14th District Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can't stop shaking things up.


Ever since she began the campaign that resulted in her besting a ten time incumbent, Ocasio-Cortez has vocally supported policies more moderate liberals have been scared to, and called for the restructuring and overhauls of various institutions.

Her boldness has many Republicans reeling. Among them: Fox News host Sean Hannity, who rails against Ocasio-Cortez almost nightly. When he recently laid out a description of her policies, the Congresswoman had something to say about it.

Most notably, Hannity pounced on a proposed 70% tax marginal rate for America's wealthiest. Many Republicans were quick to decry the policy as the government taking Americans' hard-earned money, despite the fact that the 70% taxation wouldn't occur until after that person's 10 millionth dollar.Similar marginal tax rates have been in place during the United States' most innovative decades. What's more, marginal tax rates are more complicated than Hannity is presenting. Here's an excellent guide to them.

Hannity and Fox News may think the term "radical" has only negative connotations, but in a recent 60 Minutes interview, Ocasio-Cortez pointed out the place of radicals in history.

Twitter hailed Ocasio-Cortez for not shying away from radical policies.

Healthcare was another important topic.

And they're certain Hannity and his ilk are quaking in their boots.

Hannity devotes much of his air time to Ocasio-Cortez. Her Twitter supporters had some things to say about his latest segment.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
