Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the rising star in the Democratic party. The 30-year old self-proclaimed 'Democratic Socialist' and former bartender is New York’s 14th Congressional District for 2020 and beyond. AOC, for short, is the third most popular US politician on Twitter after Barack Obama and President Trump. Some believe AOC will be president one day as well. One of the biggest question. South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is trolling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. On Twitter after former President Barack Obama said that she should have a more prominent. Obama did not endorse Ocasio-Cortez, however. The former president’s other New York endorsements included Jackie Gordon, Rep. Max Rose, Mondaire Jones, Rep. Antonio Delgado, and Dana Balter.

A coalition of more than 40 progressive groups—Just Democracy—is ramping up the pressure on Majority Leader Chuck Schumer by running a digital billboard in New York's Times Square—the heart of Schumer's district—urging him to end the Senate filibuster. The filibuster rule requires most legislation to reach 60 votes to pass in the Senate.
The coalition—made up of over 40 grassroots civil rights and social justice groups from around the country—created and paid for the week-long billboard starting Monday.
Just Democracy tweeted Sunday that the billboard was previewed on NBC's 'Meet the Press' earlier in the day:
[email protected] unveiled our new billboard to @SenatorDurbin. He responded: “If this filibuster has now become so common in the Senate that we can’t act, that we just sit there helpless, shame on us. Of course, we should consider a change in [the] rule under those circumstances.” pic.twitter.com/enXawodRxL

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the majority whip, said on 'Meet the Press' that 'the American people want us to take action, action on this pandemic, action on this economy and on a host of other issues, and if this filibuster has become so common in the Senate that we can't act, that we just sit there helpless, shame on us. Of course we should consider a change in the rule under those circumstances.'
The Just Democracy ad quotes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'A Cherished Tool of Segragationists'; former President Barack Obama: 'Jim Crow Relic'; and ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: 'Outlived Its Usefulness.' Ocasio-Cortez is reportedly considering a challenge to Schumer for his Senate seat in 2022.
“Democrats gained control of the Senate because of Black and Brown organizers and voters,' Stasha Rhodes, campaign director for 51 for 51 and a member of the Just Democracy coalition, said in a statement. 'Now they have a chance to remove the biggest impediment to the legislation those voters care about most — voting rights, healthcare, a serious COVID rescue package and more.'
Meanwhile, another progressive/labor coalition—Fix Our Senate—ran a full-page ad in Sunday's New York Times that also pushed Schumer to end the filibuster. “There is absolutely no reason to give Sen. McConnell months and months to prove what we absolutely know — that he is going to continue his gridlock and dysfunction from the minority,” said Eli Zupnick, a spokesman for Fix Our Senate. The group has launched a six-figure ad campaign and plans to deploy field staff in states where Democratic senators have expressed reluctance to ditch the rule.

The filibuster is a Jim Crow relic that must be abolished.

The Founders did not create the filibuster. In fact, Alexander Hamilton warned us that supermajority rule in the Senate would be a 'poison.'
Boy was he was right.

It’s time we stop letting the Minority Leader control the Democratic majority. https://t.co/4hTY81Or6C

The filibuster must go.
There’s no time to waste.
The stakes are too high.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has effectively compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, and his administration to the Third Reich.
That’s the logical consequence of her claim that detention facilities at the southern border are “concentration camps” — because the same facilities existed under Obama.
Breitbart News first broke the news in 2014 that large numbers of children were being “warehoused by authorities” after crossing the border illegally.
Few Democrats showed any concern, or criticized the Obama administration for its policies — even when photos emerged of children being detained in facilities where they had been separated from adults by chain-link fences.
Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats continue to hurl accusations of “kids in cages” at the Trump administration, but few said anything five years ago — even after the mainstream media documented the Obama administration’s policies.
Now, Ocasio-Cortez has decided that such facilities — which cannot accommodate the surge of migrants, partly because Democrats refuse to fund the Trump administration’s border security efforts adequately — are “concentration camps.” She has even used the phrase “never again,” popularly associated with the Nazi Holocaust against Jews.

And when faced with criticism, from Yad Vashem or even friendly CNN and MSNBC, she has refused to apologize.
But since Ocasio-Cortez is digging in, rejecting any criticism of her false and offensive comparison, it is perhaps fair to let her analogy run its course. She is accusing the first black president, and still the most important figure in the Democratic Party, of running “concentration camps.”
The Lyndon LaRouche fans who crashed Tea Party rallies with posters of Obama wearing a Hitler mustache were considered a lunatic fringe; AOC is apparently eager to join them.
