‘Believing women…whether it’s politically convenient or not’: AOC Likes Article Corroborating Tara Reade’s Claims Against Biden

In a surprise twist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez liked an article on Twitter Tuesday that supported a woman who has long claimed she was sexually assaulted decades ago by former Vice President Joe Biden.

The article posted to Twitter had two independent witnesses corroborating the accusations made by Tara Reade, a former Biden aide, regarding sexual assault allegations that resurfaced in March against the Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful.

Moreover, Ocasio-Cortez’s liked Tweet from Jessica Valenti, a feminist author and GenMag columnist, read: “Believing women means doing so whether it’s politically convenient or not.”


Reade, a former Senate staffer for Biden, is alleging that the former lawmaker sexually assaulted her in 1993 when she was working in his Washington D.C. office. Her brother, Collin Moulton, also came forward telling Business Insider he remembered his sister saying Biden “had his hand under her clothes at some point.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter reaction comes after she pledged last week to vote for Biden in November and as so many of her Democratic colleagues, who were part of the outspoken “believe women” crowd during the Brett Kavanaugh supreme court confirmation hearings and the #MeToo Movement, remain silent on Reade’s accusations. For example, The Daily Caller’s Henry Rodgers recently asked every Senate Democrat to comment on Reade’s claims, giving them 24 hours to respond, but not a single one responded.

Several sources close to Reade, both then and now, have since come forward to corroborate her claims and Rep. Ocasio Cortez’s liked Tweet brings some of the most recent of those to light.

Lynda LaCasse, Reade’s former neighbor, told the Insider Tuesday of Reade’s claims, “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.” LaCasse was Reade’s next-door neighbor at the time, according to the news site.

The Insider also spoke with Lorraine Sanchez, Reade’s former colleague in a California state senator’s office in the mid-90’s, who “recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington, DC, had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns.”

In a recent interview with The Intercept, Reade described an anonymous phone call her mother made to “Larry King Live” asking for advice for her daughter who was “sexually harassed and retaliated against” while working for a “prominent senator.” The Media Research Center later uncovered the damning clip from a 1993 airing of King’s show on CNN (above).

Biden, himself, hasn’t acknowledged Reade’s allegations, but his campaign continues to deny them.

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’



Screen Shot 2019 01 04 at 7.05.24 PM

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
