Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Quits Facebook, Calls Social Media a 'Public Health Risk'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Ilhan Omar

According to a Time Magazine report, Ocasio-Cortez and her staff received special training from Capitol Police on assessing visitors that may be potential threats.

Ocasio-Cortez shot to national prominence past year after unseating New York Rep. Joe Crowley, then a top Democrat in the House. The Democrat has been under fire in recent days for her recent comments about 9/11. Omar at a speech last month said that "some people did something" as she talked about the creation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who burst onto the national stage after defeating a high-ranking incumbent, said her departure from Facebook was a "big deal" because the platform was crucial to her campaign.

Take the word of US representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who went on Yahoo News' Skullduggery podcast today to talk about, among other things, how an outrageous amount of power is concentrated in the hands of just a few large technology companies.

Ocasio-Cortez touted a phone call with British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn earlier this year, despite his lengthy history of anti-Semitism.

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news". The fund, which helps first responders and others harmed in the 9/11 attacks, is up for renewal.

White House Denies Trump Stirring up Violence with Anti-Omar Tweet
He said he wants the returns in hand by April 23 and said neither the Trump administration nor the courts can undercut him. Mnuchin could not say if the Treasury, which oversees the IRS, would complete its review of Neal's request by the deadline.

Crenshaw served five deployments overseas - while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed his right eye and badly injured his left eye.

However, many came to his defense over Ocasio-Cortez's criticism due to his status as a decorated war veteran.

But Barr in the Friday letter said Ocasio-Cortez's remarks about Crenshaw go too far. He urged her to apologize before visiting Kentucky, which would be "a step toward restoring a culture of respect among Members of the U.S. House of Representatives - a culture I hold in high esteem".

Her priorities include tackling climate change - and her environmental stance would most likely go down well among the eco-friendly crowd at the festival which has banned single-use plastic bottles on site.

Now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could follow in the footsteps of Jeremy Corbyn and address thousands of people at the Glastonbury Festival.
