Socialist Ocasio-Cortez lashes out at media for revealing where she lives – in a luxury high rise

According to the New York Post, Democratic Socialist party member and US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “scolded media outlets for reporting that she lives in a luxury high-rise building in Washington, DC, around the time she and other high-profile Democrats appeared on a hit list compiled by a Maryland man arrested for allegedly planning a mass terror attack.”

“It’s reckless, irresponsible & puts people directly in danger. This isn’t a game,” she tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez earns $174,000 per year as a congressperson.

She lives “…in a tony section of the capital in a building where rents range from $2,000 for a studio apartment to more than $5,000 for a three-bedroom,” according to the Post.

Recent articles pointed out that “Ocasio-Cortez’s platform [is] as a champion of the poor and took her to task for living in an upscale building that they claimed didn’t offer affordable housing.”

Ocasio-Cortez made housing affordability one of her top policy concerns.

Ocasio-Cortez also has a second residence in the Bronx, a condo purchased by her late father in 1986. She has lived there since 2011.  The mortgage was paid off by her father in 2007, according to public records. She resides there without any monthly payments other than homeowner association fees and property taxes, according to a report in the Washington Free Beacon.

Ocasio-Cortez seems to have lied about her living situation during her campaign.

She “…focused on being relatable to the ‘working-class struggles’ of fellow New Yorkers, with reports falsely indicating that the family had to ‘fight off foreclosure’ on the Bronx apartment,” according to the Beacon.

CNBC wrote, “In 2008, Ocasio-Cortez’s father passed away from cancer when he was just 48. In order to help fight off foreclosure on her family’s apartment in the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez took on several jobs in restaurants—often working 18-hour shifts.”

The mortgage was paid off before her father died.

There is more:

The Daily Mail revealed that her father purchased a second residence—a three-bedroom home in pricey Westchester, about 30 miles north of New York City.  She moved there as a young child and, thus, her Bronx condo was not her family home.

Ocasio-Cortez made it seem, in an interview with The Intercept, that the Westchester home her mother lived in was in New York City.

“With my family, we sold my childhood home,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “My mother was forced to move to Florida because she could no longer afford to live in New York City, remain in New York City.”

Ocasio-Cortez seemed to go out of her way to describe an affluent or at least middle-class lifestyle as a struggle up from poverty.

Ocasio-Cortez’s new luxury apartment in DC was named by Politico as “one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world.”

In defending her choice of a luxury condo, a spokesman of Ocasio Cortez told the Washington Free Beacon that her office also uses a car with an “internal combustion engine that runs on fossil fuels,” even though she thinks their use should be eliminated.

  • And who voted for this woman???? She was a barista with supposedly a degree in economics. That in and of itself is hilarious. She has no skills , character, leadership qualities, or plan, now her district will reap the gigantic benefits of electing a moron-she wants the attention and money and the media is giving her everything she wants. She is a dope.

  • “Some pigs are more equal than others”. – I may be wrong, but I believe it was the character Pygmalion in the book Animal Farm by George Orwell.

  • Aw getting your panties in a knot over your little leftist bimbo. Don’t worry even though you are much older, you are every bit as shallow as she is.

      • Hiya hypocrite. Love how your buddies at MSNBC talked ncessantly about the supposed Chicago hate crime against your fellow leftist jackass Smollet. Of course after the TRUTH was revealed your fellow hypocrites at MSNBC ran nothing on it..
        Go pontificate your leftist liberal bullshit elsewhere. You like to think you are mentally superior but are nothing but a left wing talking point parrot. You are incapable of an original thought.

      • Do I need to go on about the democrap voter fraud all over the country, you conveniently leave out. One example of hundreds of potential democrap election thievery.

        Vote fraud may have occurred in one of the closest House races in the country last fall, according to an audit of absentee ballots.

        Republican Yvette Herrell declared victory on election night, Nov. 6, over Democrat Xochitl Torres Small in the race for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District seat. But after more votes were counted, Torres Small was declared the winner by about 3,500 votes of about 200,000 cast.

        However, a new audit report obtained by the Daily Signal alleges a “concerted effort” to push for absentee votes where New Mexico voter ID laws are not enforced.

        Torres Small’s victory depended heavily on absentee ballots from Doña Ana County, the largest county in the district, including the Las Cruces area, the Daily Signal pointed out.

        The audit report indicates potential fraud in applying for absentee ballots and says a significant number of absentee ballots were time-stamped after the 7 p.m. deadline election night.

        You also forget that after recounts were started for Hillary back in 2016 Trump picked up votes in Wisconsin and Michigan before a judge stopped things before more widespread deomcrap election rigging was revealed.

        Again please take your alt left talking points and stick them

      • North Carolina admitted that there was most certain voter fraud and chose to do a ‘do-over.’ When will California make the very same admission, as most of the congressional elections there were won by the Dems on the VERY SAME BASIS as the disputed North Carolina congressional election. Or is this just one more example of ‘one law for thee, and another for me’ from the Dems?

  • Ocasio-Cortez is not expounding Socialist doctrine she is actually expounding Communist doctrine.

    There is a big difference between her and Elizabeth Warren.

      • So Anonymous,

        One of the United States most important allies, the United Kingdom, is a quasi capitalist-socialist country as well as all of Western Europe.
        The United Kingdom has universal health care for all citizens.
        Is the United Kingdom, a country that supported the US during the first Gulf war and the invasion of Iraq, a communist country?

        I happen to be a registered Republican.

        By the way anonymous or ‘ Scott’ do your kids go to public school? Well, guess what? Public school is a form of socialism.

        Can you kindly refund your neighbors the portion of their real estate taxes that go towards your childrens attending school for free?

        Well Scott or Bangcock or Tex or Anonymous or whatever your going by today do you have an intelligent reply?

        Are you going to be a big tough guy and call me a snow flake or a libtard because I happen to be an educated republican?

        Maybe you will call be a rhino (Republican in name only) ?

        anonymous please go jump back in your political echo chamber because you are one of those people that can not have an intelligent discourse.

        • That wasn’t me, Frank didn’t post my reply. I agree public schools are socialist, especially in recent decades, where the “education” is very left-leaning. Social Security is also Socialist. In fact, it’s right in the name. It’s not an either/or issue, that a country must be 100% capitialist or 100% socialist, it’s a matter of degree, there is a mixture of both for any country. My kids went to public schools, as I couldn’t afford to send them to private schools AND pay public school taxes. I have no intent to refund my neighbors’ school taxes. I’m a Republican as well. The term is RINO. I don’t know who the idiot is who wrote the comment you responded to.

        • Shut up punk. Your ignorance is more annoying than amusing. what you know about anything could fit on the head of a pin. Your original comment was totally ignorant. There is no difference in what those two political whores believe. BTW, I don’t give a flying what you are politically..

  • It will be interesting to see how her evil leftist Senate counterpart worms her way out of the smollett case. Kamala Harris had lunch with racist and hate crime hoaxer Al Sharpton in Harlem at Sylvias.. My prediction is that Harris will be found to be connected to the Smollett hate crime. This cake is baking

  • Aw the bimbo gift that keeps on giving. The dopey pied piper of our resident left wing nuts that think we only have 12 years before the bogey man climate change destroys us.

    Media Hysteria: Climate Change ‘Heat Records’ Are a Huge Data Manipulation

    The idea that climate change is producing heat records across the Earth is among the most egregious manipulations of data in the absurd global warming debate.

    Americans receive a daily barrage from the fake news media and climate “experts” reporting that each and every day, week, month or year is the hottest on record due to global warming. On Feb. 7, several major newspapers carried stories of the declaration by NASA and NOAA that the past five years have been the warmest on record.

    Sadly, these supposed experts use mathematical equations that do not jibe with reality over the past 140 years.

    The same climate experts warn that record heat is just the tip of the iceberg. We are constantly told that global warming is the root cause behind any and all weather events that are extreme, destructive, unusual or uncomfortable.

    Many of these fear mongers also say we should stop burning fossil fuels that are causing this mayhem

    • You Sir, are a completely indoctrinated snowflake. Your “experts” on climate change in your so-called “newspaper” do not have proof for any of their claims. They do not even know what the difference between climate and weather is. And you are the prime example of an uneducated Republitard.
      Reading shit like this […] The highest temperature ever reported was 136 degrees Fahrenheit in Libya in 1922. The record high temperature for the United States was 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California, in 1913. Fossil fuel emissions in 1913 and 1922 were negligible compared to today.

      The coldest temperature ever reported was 129 degrees below zero Fahrenheit in Vostok, Antarctica, in 1983, when Carbon dioxide emissions were five times higher than in 1913. The coldest temperature in the lower 48 states of 70 degrees below zero in Rogers Pass, Montana, in 1954. Did the media and climate scientists warn that this low temperature indicated that we are headed for another Ice Age?[…]
      means that we need a huge investment in the school system and media competence so that people do not leave it with a degree, but with actual knowledge. It is a shame that you most likely have high school degree, while being unable to read and understand what has been written.
      But it is nice to see the media defending the oil companies. I should look into the billionaire who bought this “newspaper”. My gut tells me that the situation is the same like Tucker Carlson and the Kochs.

  • Ocasio-Cortez is just like her hero Karl Marx. Karl Marx cried poverty and avowed himself a champion of the working classes…..

    The truth is that Marx lived a nice and comfortable life thanks to Frederic Engels support. Frederic Engels was the son of wealthy parents and patron of Karl Marx.

    Ocasio-Cortez is just like all of her social activist predecessors….

    A hypocrite.

    • Socialism often results in the elite living pampered, comfortable, privileged lives, while the minions are herded into small apartments and forced to take mass transit to their work-a-doo jobs, with a huge chunk of their salary grabbed for taxes. That is, unless you’re a helpless or lazy ne’er do well, who lives on government programs. The super rich don’t wait for paychecks and derive their income from investments and interest.

      Bernie Sanders is another example of one living the high life while preaching wealth redistribution. I’m waiting for him to redistribute two of his three luxury residences..

      These folks fully realize that if we merely taxed consumption (and not income), the wealthy would automatically “pay more,” and the government would have more money that it has now. Smarter people than I have already done the math. Taxation of income is a method of suppression and control.

  • “My mother was forced to move to Florida because she could no longer afford to live in New York City, remain in New York City.”

    Many people can’t afford to live in New York City or New York State.

    The high taxes imposed by Ocasio-Cortez’s friends in the New York Democratic party have forced the middle class to flee New York.

    The Latina Trotskyist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears a 3500 dollar outfit while telling everyone else to shop for clothes at thrift stores.

    Ocasio-Cortez also suggested shopping at thrift stores, walking, biking, using public transit and lugging around a grocery bag and coffee mug.

    God Save America if this Marxist is ever elected President.

    • Marxism, socialism are the labels on the lips of people who only judge the surface of things, perhaps pretending to be something that you are not in reality, disliking others as behavior but doing what you want is a matter of socialists or rather of politicians and people in general who like to sell a false image of themselves to obtain the approval and support of other people who in fact only see you superficially according to their own idealistic desires of a leader to leave the responsibility of taking decisions that take away from them responsibility. True socialism and even more true utopian communism supposes a greater responsibility of each citizen both in their behavior towards society and the community and in their obligation to prepare themselves to give their best contribution to them.

  • What are you complaining about? The fact that members of the house earn 174k and that she spends it? That is pretty weak, Frank. Remember how much money you charged NXIVM per month

    • Frank didn’t “charge” NXIVM anything, that’s how much they paid him. As far as I know, Frank was not against Amazon moving into AOC’s neighborhood, she was.

  • Another FAKE. Grew up in Westchester. Family owns property in the Bronx. Now she lives in a Fancy Condo in DC in a Fancy area.

    Sheesh! We were tricked again…working class, struggling to make ends meet. Sure.
