Green New Deal

AOC and her communist buddies embrace a COVID-19 world

Robert Knight, Washington Times

The most plausible scenario is that the virus was, indeed, cooked up in the lab. Former CIA officer Clare Lopez makes that case in her April 20 article “Made in China”. Beyond debate is that the communists covered up the outbreak for weeks — assisted by the World Health Organization (WHO) — as it morphed into a worldwide pandemic that has killed hundreds of thousands and crushed the world’s economy. Not everyone is unhappy about the latter. New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) says she’s thrilled by the crash of the oil industry, which has cost hundreds of thousands of jobs and could put many U.S. producers out of business.

If you like the pandemic lockdown, you're going to love the 'Green New Deal'

Editors, Washington Examiner

The socialist greens acknowledge that the meltdown and shutdown we're enduring (with gritted teeth) is what their climate agenda entails. They're right. A whopping 26 million people have filed for unemployment benefits in the past five weeks. The economy is in free fall. People are miserable. Obviously, AOC and other green dreamers don't want people dead or depressed, but these are the implications of their carbon-free agenda. It entails suffering that gets worse as time goes by. Voters who weren't instantly repelled by the plan's fiscal obscenity and rejection of freedom are now getting a taste of what the militant socialist agenda would actually mean.

The Rout of Oil

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Lifting the national economic lockdown is the only thing that will really restore function to the oil markets. As to the future of the two million jobs the domestic oil industry supports, and the global leadership American oil had assumed until the collapse of the past six weeks, that’s a lot murkier. Practically free oil is the death knell of renewable energy and makes obsolete every one of the draconian and ridiculous enviroloon policies the AOC's of the world espouses. Here’s hoping the shock of the oil rout knocks the stupid off a sizable chunk of our political leadership and gets America back to work before there is nothing left of our economy.

Green New Deal Would Cost Households in 5 States $70K+ in First Year

The CEI and Power the Future analysis shows that, if implemented, the Green New Deal would cost for American households at least tens of thousands of dollars annually on a permanent basis. Perhaps that’s why exactly zero Senate Democrats, including the resolution’s 12 co-sponsors, voted for the Green New Deal when they had the chance.

How to Miss a Big-Time Political Point

William Murchison, The American Spectator

It would be nice to get back to the central point here, which is that the Green New Deal — outlined by whites, blacks, who cares, really? — is nonsense and merits utter rejection. We can’t afford it. We can’t tolerate it, never mind the size of the Bernie Sanders Fan Club. The reported vogue for socialism on the part of the young needs squelching — not by force (the tool of the Left) but by rational persuasion. Trump, master operator as he conceives himself, plans to squash the ultra-left Democratic presidential ticket he hopes will result from embarrassing party moderates into alliance with Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Might work. But if not, what then?

The Growing Drive To Destroy The Beef Industry

If one reads the documents and statements from the World Wildlife Fund, the United Nations Environment Program and others involved, it is not hard to realize that the true goal is not to produce a better grade of beef, but to ban it altogether. The question must then be asked, why are Ag industy groups allowing this to happen, and indeed, are joining with the Sustainable Beef Roundtable to force these policies on America's farmers and ranchers?

Blowhard Democrats Are Green Phonies

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democratic Party at the moment seems to be in a knockdown, drag-out fight for who can be the greenest of the green and push us forward to a brave new world propelled exclusively by solar and wind energy. Only the strongest (i. e. most slavishly devoted to renewable energy at all costs) will survive. Bernie and AOC are currently beating Joe Biden over the head about this. Poor Joe is frantically shoring up his "environmental" credentials. But those who've tried renewables (like Germany) discovered it doesn't work. I doubt this would mean much to true believers like Bernie and AOC, but the rest of us might pay attention.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Trump To Lead Fight Against Socialism

In conversation with White House staff it has been made clear that the President’s remarks at CPAC about socialism were not just an example of preaching to the choir and that the administration considers the Democrats’ move to the Far Left to be a serious challenge that was observed coming a long way off and would be confronted at every opportunity.

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Environmental Alarmism Killing Mankind’s Most Ancient Dream

Titled “Forget Mars” a recent environmental alarmist article begins with the plea, “Please stop with these reckless journey imaginings” and demands that humans stop “presenting space voyages as inevitable.” Instead, mankind is admonished to throw our collective weight and brains into fixing the harm we’ve done here on Earth and to stop our expansionist pipe dreams.

Little Climate Change Monsters Turn On Democrats

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, they cannot move fast enough to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, think, say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Democrat Presidential Candidates To Provide Comic Relief This Week

his week’s Senate debate on the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” is going to be comical, but never forget that behind the zany ideas is the same cold iron hand of Socialist authoritarianism that has killed millions every place and every time it has been tried.

Whistling Past the 'Green New Deal'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The socialists are running the show at the Democratic National Committee, and to say they're not ready for prime time is an understatement. Theirs are policies grade schoolers might love. Or maybe even they would laugh at the inanities prescribed. So are the media at all concerned? It's so nice to be a Democrat with today's network-news environment. No ABC or NBC anchor will narrate a commercial sternly warning, "Air travel. A cheeseburger. A glass of milk. You may have them today, but you may be about to lose them! Is this what the country wants?"

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal and the Unicorn Caucus

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

These are not happy days for Democrats, proving once more that nothing recedes like success. The radicalization of the party quickens. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the newly elected congressperson in Minnesota and a fierce supporter of the campaign to boycott, sanction and pull investments from Israel, accused Jews of being obsessed only with money and of showing more loyalty to a foreign country — i.e., Israel — than to their own. It was a familiar canard, demonstrating again how friendly the party has become to purveyors of anti-Semitic poison.

The Green New Deal is a Suicide Note for Democrats

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In a presidential election, the "out" party candidate usually has an advantage. No record to defend. He or she can choose the terrain on which to attack the incumbent, who has a four-year record. Rarely does an out party present a fixed and stationary target as exposed as this, as out-of the-mainstream as this, as vulnerable as this. The only explanation for the endorsement of the Green New Deal by candidates with a prospect of winning the Democratic nomination is that they are so fearful of Ocasio-Cortez and the left for whom she speaks that they must endorse her plan.

How About A Red, White And Blue New Deal?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s funny how the solution to every problem the left obsesses over is having leftists take away your money and your freedom. But, in my Red, White and Blue New Deal (Support your own damn self and leave me the hell alone.), no one takes anything from anyone else. You take care of yourself, and you get left alone, which is frustrating for the left because the left exists to steal what you have earned to redistribute as the left sees fit, and to command you to do, think, say, and feel as the left sees fit.

Green is the new red

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

We will need these to pay for the deindustrialization of America. Conservatives have tended to laugh and sneer at the GND (me included), but these frontal assaults on free market capitalism are quickly becoming Democratic orthodoxy. Green is the new red, as the saying goes, and unless conservatives defeat and discredit these dingbat ideas, Donald Trump will be proven wrong. America will be on its way to becoming a socialist nation.

The Democrats' 'Green New Hoax'

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The so-called “Green New Deal,” onto which 70 leading Democrats have signed, doesn’t exist. Like a salesman parked at a corner hawking a small bottle filled with a mystery substance that will cure everything from insomnia to cancer, the Democratic Party is promoting a fraud-work quilt promising a cure for all. In reality, this hoax targeting the liberal base, GenXers and progressives, is nothing more than an elaborate Get Out the Vote organizing effort. No one asked former President Barack Obama for specifics of his “hope and change” plan, and we all know how that worked out.
