The laughable, pathetic, infantile Green
New Deal sets a new low for Democrats

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/10/2019 5:21:30 AM

Right from the outset, the six-page document laying out the “Green New Deal” seemed like a joke, something a few devious wags in the Republican Party whipped up to parody an expansive environmental plan conjured up by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The first words in the document put together by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez to explain the congressional resolution are “Overview — We will begin work immediately on Green New Deal bills to put the nuts and bolts on the plan described in this resolution (important to say so someone else can’t claim this mantle).” “Important to say so someone else

None of these people has what it takes to lead the country.

The Democrat party was taken by surprise by these imbeciles in the freshman class and some who have been there a bit before. How much more were the rest of us taken by surprise at how many people are taking these people seriously?

Uh, is the GND really more ridiculous than saying that Mexico will pay for a border wall or that Trump can eliminate the (then) $19 trillion dollar debt in eight years??

What really is laughable, pathetic, and infantile is the mindless tribalism that now pretends to be political discourse.

Attacking the details of this nutty scheme is almost as dumb as the scheme itself.

What SHOULD be attacked are not the details - - but its underlying notion - - the fake, phony hoax called Climate Change.

It doesn´t matter what the details are - - the entire premise is false.

#4, in the immortal words of John McEnroe..."You cannot be serious!" The AOC Green New Deal is a whole other level of truly infantile. Eliminating cow farts and airplanes? Paying people who are unwilling to work? That´s on the same level as making Mexico pay for the wall? Please. You are beclowning yourself.

AOC is not capable of putting this together, gaining congressional support, and having every media source give it air time. She is just a puppet that doesn´t know she is a puppet.

We should expect the vast majority of Americans are not radicalized morons- not yet, anyway. At least 60% of thinking people have got to understand the GND is a fantasy that- for now, can go nowhere at all legislation -wise. The DemoKKkrat party may initially seem to endorse it- but, it has to be greatly watered down to almost non-existent status before being placed in a convention created platform- even as a single plank! Why? Because it is a politically devastating position for a nationwide election. For now, it is safe to moderately praise - but, political reality is soon going to squash it like a bug.

The key here is not to let them get away with it. Just to ridicule it and let them go politically unscathed (because otherwise you will be accused of being a racist) is exactly what McCain, Jeb, Mittens would do. Let us hope PDT doesn´t let them off the hook that easily.

Not so sure we should dismiss this as laughable and preposterous. We need to consider the Millennial mindset. They have been taught and believe that our OneWorld essential goal is to work together, united and feverishly, to save the planet. This is a generational thing and there will be increasingly more of them than there are of us.

We have the greatest economy in the world and the Democrats want to change it. These people don´t have the gray matter to read a balance sheet or financial statement let alone run the most powerful country in the world. They are the party of ignoramuses!

Climate Change is their signature issue. They think they sound smart when they spew fake facts about it. Basically, they´ve run out of issues. In the early 20th century there were many rights issues to run on, such as civil rights, womans rights, workers rights, etc. Those rights have been achieved and along the way the country became an economic giant worldwide. Democrats never run on accomplishments. They are the party of complainers always looking for fault. Obama was good at that.

Democrats say they go to Ivy League schools but sound like high school drop outs when you look at the field of qualified candidates. They are ingrates filled with hate, not only for President Trump, but also for the United States.
They are embarassing themselves by even acknowledging this stupid Green New Deal. No planes, trains and buses. Let´s do no trucks which means no food at the grocery stores and we all starve to death.
Insanity on steroids.

Many of the Democrat President wannabes who endorsed this deal before reading it are trying to back away from it claiming it´s a fake document.

Look for many, many revisions to be made to this deal as the most outrageous proposals are modified or removed. All earlier versions will be declared to be fake.

The GND is yet one more example that our Washington ´elite´ are not fit to lead. As for Trump being no better than the rest, at least he is not Washington, and a number of things have been done that would not have been done if A democrat or any other Republican were President.

So many of these people need to be voted out, but how can that be done when there are no real choices.

Don´t laugh but there are spineless Trump hating RINOs in Congress that would give or vote to give parts of the GND to the left to show they are not partisan. That´s the real scary part. Maybe a debate on the floor about abolishing cow flatulence or solar panels for jet planes adding thousands of bird killing wind mills. Our government has been dumb down and I´m not laughing I´m crying.

After the disasterous rollout of this mess, AOC is trying to say it isn’t really what she said and it was somehow doctored. Really, they are trying to blame the Republicans for somehow doctoring this to make it look bad. So the narrative to save her begins and the group think groupies are grabbing the bait.

How can anyone vote for these fools?

All the comments here are on point....these people are imbeciles, morons, and idiots. Their proposals boarder insanity. They have just lost the 2020 election with this green manifesto. Just look at the numbers of voters tied to the jobs they want to abolish, if they had the revenue to implement--which they don´t. The airline industry, from Boeing on down; the coal, oil, gas industry and affiliated jobs; the farming,ranch, food industry associated with cow, meat, dairy products; etc.
Now while these fools run around espousing their fraudulent, impossible scheme, the Republicans, conservatives, and rational people should attack them with every legal means available to civilized society---And destroy that ideology forever!!!!

Just the idiotic proposal to retrofil every building and rebuild them as energy efficient is mindblowingly stupid. Do they realize how much resources and building materials would be required, not mention all the waste to be disposed of?

Where are they going to find quality education and healthcare and safe and affordable housing? Most of us already have clean air and water (except perhaps some demoncrat cities) and access to nature.

With no trucks or trains, how do we get food and supplies across the country? Where do all these charging stations get their electricity? From solar and windmills?

Apparently we don´t need a lot more trees, either. We already have way too many in our national forests, and liberal policies allow them to burn every year. The Mid-west and Southwest were once all grasslands and desert, now covered with tress planted over the past century.

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

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.”

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.

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington.

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

(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.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday celebrated Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City. "Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world," Ocasio-Cortez, one of the deal´s staunchest critics, wrote. (Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

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!”

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.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

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. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

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 — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

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

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to
