A star is born in the Democratic party and the leadership is worried. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has an agenda that calls for free college, free healthcare, and a 70% income tax on the wealthy. She also wants to totally eliminate fossil fuels as well as the party’s fossil leadership. And she has some nice dance moves.

The media can’t get enough of it.

The party’s millennial base has moved left. Too far left to to win elections fear its baby boom elders. “I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,” says  Joe Lieberman.

AOC’s response, “New party, who dis?”

Politico’s Rachel Blade and Heather Caygle take a look at the party split here in “Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez.”

Meanwhile, WSJ editor Gerard Baker thinks “she may be one of the most important political figures of our age.”

President Trump’s speech from the oval office was short and sweet. He demanded five and a half billion for a border wall, or barrier, or something sticking out of the ground, but didn’t declare a national emergency.

Base Fear

Marc Theissen thought it was great. Trump reached out to Americans beyond his base.

But Chuck and Nancy thought otherwise. Nancy says the wall is immoral. Chuck said Trump used the oval office to manufacture a crisis. And they both looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Could be they were looking to reach beyond their base too.

Christine Blasey Ford made a video presentation of the award. She claims to be a victim too. She accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of molesting her at a high school party.
