• Happy New Year, and Wishing You A Productive 2021

My oh my, the cracks are already starting to show!

#1
On one side are the young progressives lead by AOC and Ilhan Omar and they are supported by the social media young thugs like Zuckerberg who habours dreams of being president right NOW if not tomorrow. These kids want things now, right now. And they are not taking no for an answer. They want green energy and defunding police NOW!!

On the other side are the old guard, the old slay queens and kings who have been around for decades since the 1950s going for plastic surgery every two months. These include Pelosi, Biden, Hillary, Schumer etc. Old conmen. Real gangsters. Wealthy. Snake tongues. Corrupt to the core.

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday disputed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's claim that the Democratic Party isn't building new leadership.
  • "Why does AOC complain that you have not been grooming younger people for leadership?" CBS's Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi during a "60 Minutes" interview.
  • "I don't know. You'll have to ask her — because we are," Pelosi, who was recently sworn in as the House speaker of the 117th Congress, replied.
  • Pelosi told Stahl she was "not dismissing" Ocasio-Cortez, adding, "I think she's very effective, as are many other members in our caucus that the press doesn't pay attention to. But they are there, and they are building support for what comes next."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday disagreed with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's claim that Democratic leaders haven't been assembling a new cohort to take over the party.

"Why does AOC complain that you have not been grooming younger people for leadership?" the CBS News host Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi during a "60 Minutes" interview.

"I don't know," Pelosi replied. "You'll have to ask her — because we are."

"That was kind of sharp, kind of dismissing her," Stahl said in response.



"I'm not dismissing her. I respect her," Pelosi said. "I think she's very effective, as are many other members in our caucus that the press doesn't pay attention to. But they are there, and they are building support for what comes next."

These comments came after Ocasio-Cortez told The Intercept in December that Pelosi, 80, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, 70, needed to be replaced as the heads of the party. Other high-ranking Democrats include House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, 81, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, 80.

"We need new leadership," the New York progressive said. "The internal dynamics of the House has made it such that there is very little option for succession."

Ocasio-Cortez, along with several other Democrats who have been critical of Pelosi, voted last week for Pelosi to become House speaker of the 117th Congress. Pelosi, who turns 81 in March, has previously indicated that this may be her last term in the top post. She has been speaker since 2019, when Democrats took back the House, and previously held the position from 2007 to 2011.

A handful of Democrats did not back Pelosi's leadership, including Reps. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, Jared Golden of Maine, and Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey.

Pelosi faced heat from her caucus after Democrats lost several House seats in the November elections, reducing their majority to a tight margin. Moderate members, such as Lamb and Spanberger, feuded with progressives like Ocasio-Cortez over the party's strategy. But Democrats resurrected hope in the party last week by picking up two highly coveted Senate seats in Georgia, granting them control of the upper chamber. Schumer has already signaled that he intends to be Senate majority leader.

In the CBS interview, Pelosi didn't elaborate on any members who were being considered for party leadership. Her office didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.


A few lawmakers, such as Reps. Hakeem Jeffries of New York and Adam Schiff of California, have been rumored to be gearing up to take the reins of the Democratic Party.

Ocasio-Cortez has shut down ideas of her having a leadership position, saying that she's "not ready."

"It's easy for someone to say: 'Oh, well, why don't you run?'" Ocasio-Cortez said in December. "But the House is extraordinarily complex. And I'm not ready. It can't be me. I know that I couldn't do that job."

Patricia, why would AOC say the dems are not grooming young leaders yet she is one of those young leaders?
She is the de facto leader of the leftiest of the left.

In your conspiracy crazed mind, all people in a party are supposed to be in agreement all the time?? Patricia, at this rate, you'll require a brain transplants to be able to function like a normal 60 year old..
