Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ once-failing presidential campaign gained momentum in recent days; with new polls showing the far-left lawmaker now neck-and-neck with former Vice President Joe Biden.
“With three days until the next scheduled Democratic presidential nomination debate, a new national poll indicates former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont are leading the rest of the still large field of White House hopefuls,” reports Fox News.
“Biden – who has remained at the top of nearly every national poll since even before he declared his candidacy in late April — stands at 24 percent among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters in a NPR/PBSNewsHour/Marist poll released Monday,” adds Fox. “Sanders, the populist senator from Vermont who is making his second straight run for the Democratic nomination, is at 22 percent. Biden’s slight 2-point edge is within the survey’s sampling error.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren fell to third place with 17% and Mayor Pete Buttigieg lands in fourth with 13%.

SOCIALISM USA! AOC Says Capitalism ‘Not Sustainable’ Because of the ‘Environmental Costs’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the American economic model during a speech in Texas over the weekend; saying “capitalism” was “not redeemable” because it places “profit” over the “human and environmental cost.”
Here's where @AOC says capitalism is "irredeemable."

“The tough part about this, about like, is capitalism redeemable? For me, when I think about what those definitions are, capitalism isn’t, to me, it’s an ideology of capital. The most important thing is the concentration of capital,” claimed Cortez.
“It means that we seek and prioritize profit […] above all else. We seek it at any human and environmental cost. That is what that means. To me, that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed,” she added.
SOCIALISM USA! AOC Says Right to ‘Have a Home’ Trumps Americans’ ‘Privilege to Earn a Profit’
Far-left legislator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her progressive housing policies this week; telling a crowd in the Bronx that their right to affordable housing is more important than others’ “privilege to earn a profit.”
“What are we doing to make sure housing is being legislated as a human right?” Ocasio-Cortez asked during a town hall in New York City. “It means our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows throughout the Big Apple again this week; bizarrely suggesting all NYC public housing units should resemble her new “luxury” apartment in Washington, DC.
“I move into this building, and it’s marketed as a ‘luxury’ building in D.C.,” she said. “It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y’all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water. And I think about this and I’m like, ‘Hm, this is what a luxury building is like,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“I just toured an affordable housing unit yesterday in Queens. This was one of the first developments of its kind… It’s a phenomenal building,” she added.
“I go in and I do a tour with one of these seniors. She opens the door, and I open it, and it looks just like my luxury apartment. What that shows me is that what we have been taught, is a luxury, should not be a luxury,” concluded AOC.
Last month, the left-wing lawmaker made national headlines after posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
