Recently radical far-leftist, powerful Democrat Speaker of the US House, Nancy Pelosi -has been forced into the corner because of the rising power of an even further far left, albeit much younger, US Rep. from New York, Alexandria Cortez (AOC). Before becoming a US Rep., Cortez’s only experience in life was serving drinks to people in her district and making a dancing video that went viral.
Pelosi, last week, was forced to hold off on voting for herself a massive spending bill because AOC, her political competition, wanted to hold her up. The reasoning AOC gave for holding up the vote is something of a children’s comic book.
“I stood up in front of Congress and said- you know- that might be an easy thing for some of you to say (that something is better than nothing) because when a bill passes that is underfunded, that only gives a crumb, you get that crumb,” AOC said to a group of supporters, who gathered to hear about the massive muti-Trillion dollar spending spree the Federal Government is planning for themselves.
Multi-trillions that is not enough for Cortez. She wants so much more than that, making even the spending crazy Democrats very woozy. It is like a child is in charge of the keys to the candy store.
To highlight how screwball the Democrats have become, it is worthy of examining recent video footage which shows the woman who has slain Pelosi’s political career, none other than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and consider the magnitude of her powers.

How is the above video that much different from the viral dancing video that made her famous?

AOC is literally dancing in the above video while talking about out-of-control spending by the Federal Government. And she may be the most powerful woman in Washington.
“In their fight over trillions of dollars, their paramount policy goals, and perhaps their political fate, this isn’t helping: Democratic progressives and centrists say they don’t trust each other. So they’re tossing around words like “stupid” and “insanity” and they’re drawing lines in the sand.
Congressional majorities of both parties have rich histories of infighting when it comes to enacting their priorities, even when they control the White House and both chambers of Congress. For example, Democrats had to overcome stark internal divisions in 2010 to enact President Barack Obama’s health care law. The GOP fell short in 2017 when it failed to repeal that statute, President Donald Trump’s top goal.
This time, Democrats’ internal battling over a 10-year, $3.5 trillion package of social and environmental initiatives comes with virtually no margin for error and lots at stake.
The “pro-Pelosi” Washington Post described this bill sort of as Pelosi’s last stand:
Analysis | Pelosi on verge of cementing legacy as one of the most powerful members of Congress ever — or ending her career on a sour note https://t.co/NBhgAQmDE8 WTF here's my analysis . Sausage making is ugly and this isn't about her career it's about getting things done

Consider how Politico described the relationship between Pelosi and Cortez in April of 2021:
“Pelosi was famous for having what POLITICO once described as “an iron fist in a Gucci glove.” There was no better example of that than her dealings with the Squad, the quartet of progressive women elected in 2018. She hadn’t survived as the top Democrat in the House for nearly two decades by ignoring challenges or challengers. Instead, she applied the lessons she had learned to win them over, or at least keep them at bay.
The relationship between the speaker and AOC, her party’s most charismatic newcomer, is complicated. Colleagues and congressional aides said Pelosi saw the New York congresswoman as a talented person but one who was often naïve about how the institution worked and unrealistic about what could be achieved, and how.”
PELOSI LOST THE IRON FIST AND THE GUCCI GLOVE
And how did that happen? Easy: The power that AOC has to get people to watch videos. The Democrats have let AOC reach the heights of popularity and power because she makes videos they like to watch.
Last January I was sworn in for my first term in Congress.
So, what have we accomplished since then?

It is ironic that President Donald J. Trump was not able to bring rabid Pelosi to heel one bit, but a former bartender who has been in DC for three years, and is the most out of control member of Congress, has de-fanged Pelosi, and sent her almost stuttering into the night.
Irony is so ironic.
