The truth about the ‘Green New Deal’
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/9/2019 5:00:26 AM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got it about right this week when she off-handedly spoke of the “green dream” to refer to the hopelessly overhyped Green New Deal. The non-binding resolution from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey isn’t a plan but a fantasy — a wish list not just for environmentalists, but for every faction of the modern left. Far too many on the right rush to call AOC dumb or ignorant, but this bill actually shows that she (like Markey and their allies) is fundamentally dishonest. Why? Because it’s not remotely focused on their stated belief

Someone once described mixed emotions as watching your mother-in-law drive over a cliff in your new Mercedes. That´s kind of how I feel about this thing going on between San Fran Nan and Lipstick Ali. Even though I detest both of them, I am rooting for Nan to really clean Karlita Marx´s clock because you KNOW it´s gonna be good!

Now we have a list of all the socialists that jumped on the Green New Deal train.

That should be an important list during the next election cycle.

I would hope so #5 but, the problem is they are all are located in deep, deep blue districts that a republican can not be elected. The only hope is that the moderate dems wake up and clean their own house. I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one. I have never seen a party before that can march in lockstep as consistently as the rats.

It´s the left´s fantasy. Cortez went big with her wish list but stupid Republicans will give them something in a budget deal. Watch.
Republicans better take a firm stance against this nonsense and follow the President´s wishes. This is a war and no time to play.
Don´t be too sure that Cortez is going anywhere. She´s going to keep her seat for a long time until a more crazy person comes along. Cortez in my opinion is going to out last Nancy Pelosi who´s mind is slipping badly.

Airhead Occasional-Cortex, the new braying donkey face of the Democratic Party, has issued a communist manifesto that, under the guise of "green" environmental policy, would put the entire U.S. economy under government control -- jobs, wages, pensions, health care, housing, manufacturing, transportation -- essentially, almost all aspects of our economy.

It would be impossible to achieve, and if realized would turn our standard of living back to the 18th century and destroy our national economy. BUT, and this is important for AOC, Sanders, Camelface Harris, Fauxcahontas, et. al., it would put the U.S. completely under government control, a la Soviet Union, Cuba, and Venezuela.

Boston University, her alma mater from which she earned a degree cum laude in international politics and ECONOMICS, should be decertified as an institution of higher education.

Also, the Dim campaign slogan for 2020 is definitely "Make America Venezuela"

This young woman is hopelessly uninformed and criminally stupid. I cringe in embarrassment for her as what comes out of her mouth is what she truly believes! I believe she gets as much coverage as she does only because the media hopes the Right takes her seriously and gags.

In California, just south of Red Rock Canyon, a vast tract of desert is being converted to a sea of solar panels. Only a decade ago this same Mojave Desert was proclaimed a precious, fragile ecosystem that must be preserved. Solar panels require huge areas of land - orders of magnitude more land than any other means of generating power (except wind, of course!). They change the albedo, supplant all plant life and drastically alter the animal habitat. Yet, the same people who wept for the destruction of habitat by evil off-roaders now cheer for the advanced ecosystem destruction that will ´save the planet´!

Democrats and other assorted socialists continue to take the definition of hypocrisy to new heights.

Why Trump will win the wall fight

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “If my fellow citizens want to go to hell, I will help them. It is my job.” What he was expressing is the limited role of courts in challenges to federal law. It is not their task as judges to sit as a super legislature to question the priorities or policies of the political branches. They will gladly send Congress to hell. It only needs to be clear about the destination. In the matter of the border wall, Congress could not have been more clear where it was heading.

The percentage of government workers who belong to a union dipped again in 2018 and has hit a 40-year low. Just 33.9 percent of government workers now belong to a union, according to government figures, the lowest point since 1978, and down from a peak of 38.7 percent in the 1990s. Behind those numbers has been the failure of government labor groups to bounce back from a steep decline in government employment that began in 2009. That year, unions boasted 7.897 million government workers. Last year, however, just 7.162 million workers

Following months of complaints from the progressive politicos who control local politics in New York City, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos abruptly canceled plans to open the online retailer´s new corporate headquarters branch in Queens. Amazon had spent more than a year hunting for the location of its new headquarters, baiting cities across the country into falling over themselves and making ridiculous promises in a bid to get Amazon´s 50,000 jobs. The tech giant ultimately settled on splitting its new HQ between New York and Crystal City, Va. New York´s corporate welfare package was especially large, appallingly so.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Ex-cardinal McCarrick defrocked

ROME — The Vatican on Saturday said it had stripped ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick of the rights of the priesthood, leveling a historic penalty against a onetime church power broker and former archbishop of Washington who has been credibly accused of sexual abuse. In a short release, the Vatican said a canonical process had found McCarrick guilty of several charges, including “sins” with minors and adults, “with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power.” McCarrick, the Vatican said, was notified on Friday of the decision. The decision was affirmed by Pope Francis, meaning McCarrick has no further recourse.

Federal authorities seized two massive shipments of cocaine at the same California port of entry in late January. The total for the two shipments was 221 pounds -- the largest at that port in 25 years, according to officials. The busts, which were announced on Friday, were both found aboard ships at Port Hueneme in Ventura County, about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, coming from Central and South America. The first shipment, which was 204.2 pounds, was seized on Jan. 22 on a cargo ship from Ecuador. Six days later, the same authorities found a seven-bundle, 17.5-pound shipment

The most egregious anti-democratic actions ever taken by the what can now fairly be called the Deep State are confirmed with the publication of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book detailing how the FBI and Justice Department plotted to remove President Trump from office for firing FBI Director James Comey. Justice Department and FBI officials spied on U.S. citizens with false warrants, gave a pass to one presidential campaign with a predetermined investigation, investigated another political campaign on the basis of no verified evidence, and illegally leaked information on investigations. They discussed wiretapping and using the 25th Amendment

In the late ’70s there was a horrendous spate of child murders in the Atlanta area. Once it became clear that a serial monster was on the loose, people sprang into action. It was all little black children, almost all boys. Racist slanders to the contrary, white people were just as appalled as black people. Committees were formed, ribbons were worn, buttons were sold that said, “Stop the Racist Murders.” OBVIOUSLY, it was racist, right? Who in their right mind would believe that a black man had done such hideous things to black children? Then they arrested Wayne Williams

On this day in 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini announced a fatwa calling for the killing of the novelist Salman Rushdie. His “crime” was having described Islam’s founder Muhammad in his book, “The Satanic Verses,” in a way that displeased the Islamic leader. All Muslims were called upon to kill Rushdie — basically, an international contract was put out on him. For an America that was not yet fixated on the dangers of Islamic extremism, it was a chilling moment, both frightening and confusing. As the fates would have it, that same year the United States faced its own debate

The Green New Deal Is Make-Believe

WASHINGTON -- The "Green New Deal" is upon us, and the question is what to make of it. The Democratic proposal mandates that, within a decade, virtually all fossil fuels -- which represent about four-fifths of the nation´s energy supply -- shall be replaced with clean fuels that don´t worsen global warming. Just how is this task to be accomplished? The main sponsors of the Green New Deal -- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass. -- don´t say. The difficulties are made apparent by new projections of energy use between 2017 and 2050

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

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,”

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

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep.
