Feeling emboldened by an overwhelming victory in her Democratic primary contest last week, the radical socialist superstar is on a rampage, intensely pushing her dangerous agenda.

“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget, so the exact same police remain in schools, It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. The fight to defund policing continues. If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues”, a furious Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a press release after the NY City council and mayor de Blasio appeared to reach an agreement regarding cuts to the NYPD.

AP reported: New York City lawmakers were expected Tuesday to approve shifting $1 billion from policing to education and social services in the coming year, acknowledging protesters’ demands to cut police spending — but falling short of what activists sought.

City Council members were due to debate and vote on the plan Tuesday night, with time running short ahead of the fiscal year that begins Wednesday. Mayor Bill de Blasio supports the $88.2 billion spending plan and Council Speaker Corey Johnson said he was confident it would pass the council, but he expected a lot of “no” votes from members who want to cut more from police.

AOC is clearly aboard with the radical City Council who have been debating the mayor over the police cuts in the wake of the George Floyd murder and subsequent riots. Public Advocate Jumaani Williams has been one of the most vehement council members insisting on deeper more radical cuts.

Meanwhile AOC was one of 4 radical Democrats who circulated a memo threatening to cut off Israel from US funds if the annexation pla goes ahead.

JNS reported: Four Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been circulating a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, threatening the conditioning or even cutting off of U.S. assistance to Israel if the Jewish state goes ahead with its plans to apply sovereignty to parts of the West Bank in what many have said would be an annexation of the area, also known as Judea and Samaria.

The letter has been issued by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Betty McCollum (D-Minn.).

It is clear the young congresswoman wasted no time after her primary victory and is vocally pushing her hardline leftist ideology. The giant cuts are not enough for this young Leninist radical and are not enough for most of the city council who are begrudgingly going along with the mayor’s plan. It is also clear AOC, who once declared herself Jewish, is vehemently Anti- Israel
