The Green New Deal Is About
Punishing Working-Class Americans

If you haven’t read the details of the Green New Deal, let me save you the trouble: it’s a raging assault on America’s already-declining working-and-middle-class. When Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her fellow Green-Marxists in the Democratic Party put forward their proposal, they made it clear that this program was intended to be used on the “most at-risk” communities in the United States. Thenow-deleted (though it is archived) FAQ section on Congresswoman Cortez’s website specifically outlines the need to “Reverse climate change by fully rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure,

The Green Nude Eel is about forcing America back into the Dark Ages, where it can easily be defeated by its enemies.

That should be quite obvious.

Drain this movement of its oxygen, aka, press coverage and it goes away.
That this stunning stupid, anti-American radicalism is given any attention is amazing.
Sandy from Westchester is a tool and a fool! The co-sponsors of this bill have identified themselves, so now it’s obvious who not to vote for...EVER AGAIN!

Its like a charge of racism. Do they intend to do all the things overnight that remove ´racial injustice´? Of course not. But it is a convenient tool to beat the hapless opposition with. Interesting to see how Donald turns the tables on this one.

A quick back-of-the-envelope calculation using U.S. Energy Information Administration data for current electrical generation and gasoline consumption figures for the U.S. shows that well over one million additional nuke plants would need to be constructed just to fuel electric cars. That is not even taking into account the location and transmission nightmares involved. Any engineers out there who can back me up on this?

Democrats always ask for more than they know they will settle for, but this time they have truly ´´jumped the shark.´´

People who never pay much attention to them are now paying attention. There is an increasing awareness that the democrats have, in many ways, gone off the deep end. When democrats themselves laugh and make fun of the wackos, you know they are cringing inside!

I hate to be the one to inform you, but...they´re already implementing her plan. The goofy Democrats have already started shutting down the coal and nuclear power plants. An article on Drudge today said that the power grid in the midwest may go critical in the near future and endanger about 65 million people. A previous article described how the natural gas-powered plants were strained by late deliveries during the extreme cold wave recently and resulted in alerts requesting keeping homes below 60 degrees.

Little Miss Tippy Top said this problem was "existential". She has no clue what that word means but she´s right for all the wrong reasons.

Wake up! Stop the lunacy in your area of the country before it gets any worse. If you don´t, we´re all going to learn what the Dark Ages were like without having to read any history books.

Its all about control. If you work, you are more free since you have more wealth. The lefty big government types do not want that. Besides it makes all the loafers feel inadequate, and heaven forbid if we had that. They want to be Lords, and the rest of us as Serfs living in hovels serving them, and they do not care if we live or die. It is modern day feudalism. The Green New Deal takes us backwards, not forwards.

I´m not laughing at the extreme idiocy.
Cortez is the look of the democrat Marxist America hating party. Institutions of higher learning, universities, are turning out more just like her so don´t laugh.
It sounds ridiculous but there are Trump hating RINOs who are willing to concede parts of this disastrous blunder in the name of bi-partisanship to hate us.
Ignore this at your own peril the Republicans should support President Trump is squashing this Green New Deal because I take it seriously. The left owns this so hang it around their necks.

I´ve got a question for Sandy Occasional-Cortex...

When Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Accord, the United States had already cut our emissions more than any other country.

If, somehow, we get to "net-zero" and no other country cuts their emissions, then what good has our sacrifice done??

Will the world still end in twelve years??

What will our place in the world look like, when we have voluntarily gone back to the 17th century and the rest of the world is still using 21st century technology??

The "Green Deal" is about POWER. The proponents want to create their idea of utopia. We are not to have any voice in the matter, because we are a bunch of stupid deplorables. Only they possess the divine wisdom to "know whats best for us." For them to succeed, they must control every aspect of our lives. They will use whatever force is necessary to suppress opposition and achieve this fantasy.

Whether you call it Socialism or Fascism, it is Totalitarianism. And, every country where it has been implemented has been turned into a living hell for all but the very few in control. It would destroy America.

Punishing the working-class (and nearly everybody else) would be a by product of this lunacy.

All the billionaires in America are not going to pay enough taxes by a long shot to fund the leftist and liberal Democrats so-called New Green Deal that would cost more than all the existing government programs combined.

The Democrats have not said what government programs they would cut to reprogram money into their New Green Deal, but you can bet that the US Armed Forces are their primary target, beginning with abolishing the extreme US Marine Corps and much of the US Army, mothballing the Navy aircraft carriers and support ships, and grounding and disposing of the expeditionary capabilities of the US Air Force.

Anyone who has been paying attention knows that the big tax money that the US Government collects every year comes from the vast middle class of Americans who make the country go. While the Democrat snow job claims to be attuned to helping the middle class, in reality their socialist programs are attuned to forcing the middle class to pay a lot more taxes.

To follow on to #13, here´s another question:

If we are to eliminate most cars and airplanes in ten years, why should we invest .. er, spend large sums rebuilding roads, bridges, and airports with a new "infrastructure" bill?

Just shut everything down ..

.. at least until the Dems agree to a serious budget.

It is great this Marxist New Deal was rescued in this link.

It guarantees to everyone:
A job with family-sustaining wages, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security
High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
High-quality health care
Clean air and water
Healthy food
Safe, affordable, adequate housing
An economic environment free of monopolies
Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work

Wait’ll socialist Sandy from the block with an Economics degree from Boston College finds out what insider trading is - and how it’s not illegal for people in congress. All it’s going to take is for Sandy to find out how much fun it is to hang out with the really rich people, partying in Monaco during Grand Prix week, etc. She’ll lose her college days social justice morality in a heartbeat.

State Department email records show that environmental activists who have denied operating as foreign agents in response to congressional inquiries partnered with Obama administration officials to advance climate change policies that were beneficial to China and detrimental to the United States, according to energy policy analysts and attorneys who have reviewed the electronic correspondence. The World Resources Institute, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit devoted to curtailing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainable development, was one of several environmental advocacy groups that received letters from the House Natural Resources Committee in 2018 inquiring about their relationship with China´s government and the impact

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the movie theatre, for entertainment and not progressive indoctrination, think again. Netflix just paid a record $10 million for a hagiographic documentary on Democratic starlet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. After the demonization of Dick Cheney in Vice and canonization of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On the Basis of Sex both deservedly flopped last year, Hollywood is going full speed ahead on political fare, as always only in the left lane. Studio bosses never let such trifles as box-office poison change their social justice warrior ways. Netflix outbid Hulu,

9/11 compensation fund to slash
payments as new claims surge
New York Post, by Rich Calder and Bob Fredericks    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/16/2019 4:52:50 AM     Post Reply
A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

And now it’s time for the rest of the story about crooked G-man Andrew McCabe. This is important as we prepare for a weekend of unctuous oohing and ahhing in the alt-left media over the fired FBI director. Sunday night he’ll be treated as a conquering hero on “60 Minutes,” that perennial destination for dodgy Democrats down through the decades. He’ll be portrayed as the greatest lawman since Wyatt Earp, because after becoming the head fed in May 2017 he immediately opened the phony-baloney Russia “investigation” of President Trump. “I was very concerned that I was able

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed
