And AOC herself has just re-tweeted this tweet by Kate Riga:
"Wow. AOC just backed ex-acting SecDef Miller into admitting that he didn't approve plan for the Nat Guard to deploy on 1/6 until 4:32, a difference from his claim that he ordered deployment at 3. That 4:32 order came after he talked to Pence (after calls from many panicked Dems)".
Ocasio-Cortez expresses security concerns after Greene reportedly asks why she supports 'terrorists'Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) office is calling on top lawmakers to ensure that Congress remains “a safe, civil place" for members and staff after Rep.thehill.com
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) office is calling on top lawmakers to ensure that Congress remains “a safe, civil place" for members and staff after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) reportedly accosted her on Wednesday and accused her of supporting “terrorists.”
The incident was witnessed by two Washington Post reporters, according to the newspaper, which reported that Ocasio-Cortez exited the House chamber before Greene shouted “Hey Alexandria” multiple times to get her attention.
Ocasio-Cortez did not stop to address Greene, and the Georgia lawmaker continued shouting while asking her why she supports antifa and Black Lives Matter, claiming they are “terrorist” groups, according to the Post.
Greene also reportedly accused the New York lawmaker of not defending her “radical socialist” beliefs by not publicly debating her after the Republican challenged her on social media last month.
“You don’t care about the American people,” Greene shouted, according to the Post. “Why do you support terrorists and antifa?”
The Georgia lawmaker reportedly told reporters after Ocasio-Cortez left that the Democrat is a "chicken" who "doesn’t want to debate the Green New Deal.”
“These members are cowards," Green added. "They need to defend their legislation to the people. That’s pathetic.”
Ocasio-Cortez spokesperson Lauren Hitt told the Post that Greene "tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer.”
“We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff — especially as many offices are discussing reopening. One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene’s attacks,” Hitt added.
Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) announced earlier this year that she was moving her House office away from Greene’s due to safety concerns. The progressive lawmaker accused Greene and her staff of berating her in a hallway, adding that the Georgia Republican targeted her on social media.
“A maskless Marjorie Taylor Greene & her staff berated me in a hallway. She targeted me & others on social media,” Bush tweeted at the time. “I'm moving my office away from hers for my team's safety.”
Greene on social media challenged Ocasio-Cortez earlier this year to debate the progressive lawmaker's signature legislation, known as the Green New Deal. The Georgia lawmaker later approached Ocasio-Cortez on the House floor and tweeted a photo of the encounter.
“I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal,” she wrote in the post.
She meant to write: "Trust the Signs".One of them acts like a child and it isn't AOC.

But I'm certain that it's a grift for Cruz. He does this theatrical BS not because he needs to stay in the Senate (he's in texas after all), he does it to keep himself in the game for a presidential candidacy... He's smart. Green on the other hand is really really really dumb. Did she manage to read all 14 pages of the GND by now?I just can't with MTG. She's right up there with Cruz and Hawley. More like past them.

Kevin Van Ausdal’s uphill campaign for a U.S. House seat ended with a knock on his door late Wednesday while he was cooking dinner.
It was a deputy sheriff, there to serve him divorce papers from his wife. As part of the proceedings, he would have to vacate the home they shared.
After flirting with renting a nearby place, the Democrat decided to move in with family in Indiana – and abruptly abandon his congressional bid for an open seat against Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Van Ausdal didn’t initially want to share those details, which were provided with his approval Friday by his campaign aide, Michael McGraw. But rumors of threats and coercion had surfaced on social media after he cited “personal and family reasons” for his surprise decision to drop out.
