Washington — Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has joined about 200 climate-change activists as they stage a protest at the office of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Protesters are calling on Democratic leaders to put forward a “Green New Deal” that includes a swift transition to 100 percent renewable energy in line with findings of a recent report on climate change by United Nations. Some protesters were being arrested Tuesday after refusing to leave a hallway outside Pelosi’s office. Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who is set to become the youngest member of Congress in January, addressed the group

Comments:
Ocarina-Cortex sees the demographically guaranteed waning of old white Democrats in power, so positions herself at the vanguard of the replacements.

Ocassioal-Cortez used this protest opportunity to fund raise for rent money till January because she can´t afford rent money since her Go Fund Me idea did not pan out like she planned.

Note to Ocassional-Cortez...Nancy Pelosi is a democrat and is on your side.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lead the way. Since you can´t afford to live in DC and you want to go green, rent an empty lot in DC set up a tent, some solar panels, and a windmill and demonstrate the feasibility of living the green life.

occasional-cortex is in over her head. Taking on Pelosi before she is even in office is a good way to be assigned to the committee that is in charge of counting paperclips.

Pelosi is a mean person, and like hillary, holds a grudge. She should stay away from Fort Marcy Park. It will be interesting to see if she is any smarter than Maxine Waters or some of those other brain surgeons.

Recent reports (see Hinderaker at Powerline) state that there has been virtually NO "transition" to renewables for the simple reason that our world´s huge economy and structure cannot hope, at this point, to be powered by anything but fossil fuels. Occasional-Cortex and her "rocket scientist" friends are simply unable to process this REALITY when confronted with feel-good Greenie propaganda. Political leadership which cannot comprehend simple science is poorly equipped to move us forward in the 21st century. How many IQ-challenged politicians must we elect before society falls apart?
Hint: look at Detroit and Baltimore.

The next two years is going to be a riot. Even better than anything on Comedy Central.

The liberals somehow believe that everyone will get a unicorn with a democrat house and that the republican senate and Trump have nothing to say about it. They are already eating their own having finally harvested the wingnuts that they´ve cultivated.

The house cant get anything done without the approval of republicans in the senate......and I have several cases of microwave popcorn in the waiting.

Cortez will either get on the San Fran Nan bandwagon or be relegated to a closet for an office.

Climate reports produced by the U.N. are not written by climate scientists. The scientists present their conclusions, and then the U.N. bureaucrats rewrite the reports to fit their agendas. They leave out anything that does not fit their narrative. This has been going on since the 1990s.

Thug busted in subway attack that

Police on Thursday busted the hate-filled rider who fractured a woman’s spine during an attack on a Queens subway, authorities said. Allasheed Allah, 54, was arrested Thursday morning and charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated assault as a hate crime for the Nov. 30 attack, police and sources said. He was nabbed after someone recognized his photo and alerted authorities of his name and his whereabouts, police said. Allasheed allegedly approached the 20-year-old victim, who was standing with another woman, while they were riding a Manhattan-bound E train through Queens during evening rush hour.

Investigators weren’t able to find any text messages between fired agent Peter Strzok and former bureau lawyer Lisa Page from their time on the Mueller probe because by the time their phones were recovered, they’d been reset for others’ use, an inspector general said Thursday. The report also said the FBI still isn’t reliably collecting text messages of all of its employees — despite the black eye the bureau has suffered from Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page. The revelations came in a report Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released to detail the efforts his team made to try to

The Bronx — A teenager who was pushed in front of an ambulette and killed likely lost his life to the same subset of Trinitarios gang members who killed Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz in June, the NYPD said Wednesday. Angel Reyes-Godoy, of the Bronx, was discovered by cops shortly before 7 p.m. Monday near 194th Street and Bainbridge Avenue in the Jerome Park section of the Bronx. Reyes-Godoy suffered severe head trauma and was transported to a hospital where he later died. The teenager was attacked by several people who then pushed him onto the street, where he was struck

The third most powerful man in the Catholic Church has been found guilty of sexually abusing two boys in the late 1990s.

The 77-year-old, who is often referred to as the Vatican´s treasurer, was reportedly found guilty of four counts of indecent assault and one count of rape after three days of deliberations.

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

Police brass can no longer bar officers accused of misconduct from earning overtime, the Daily News has learned. An arbitration board has reversed the NYPD’s order that cops who have been stripped of their guns and shields and assigned to desk duty as they face internal disciplinary action are not eligible for overtime unless no one else is available to do their assignment. The NYPD moved to curtail overtime for officers on modified duty in late 2016, after The News revealed that notorious cops – including Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who put Staten Island man Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold in July

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.
