Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reveals Ridiculous "Green New Deal" – Multiple Immediate Backfires…


Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, aka “Occasional Cortex“, revealed an energy and social justice plan today called “The Green New Deal“, promising a massive transformation of American society.  However, the substance (full pdf below) is so ridiculous, there are many people now wondering if she and her allies were set-up by political opponents to make themselves look like fools.

The goal is to have all Americans eating sustainable algae cakes and sitting around campfires, barefoot, picking parasites off each other…. or something.

    • G3 says:

      Who are you wearing Alexander Ocasio-Cortez?
      You’re a spokesperson for who?
      Burning so Bright, you gotta wear shades. (Designer ones)

    • Henry says:

      Is this the full miniseries?

    • Ready Steady Go says:

      I used to think she was dumb or a snow flake. She is neither. She isn’t serious about any of this. She doesn’t believe in free healthcare, college, and jobs. She knows it’s all bs. It just sounds good and Noble and she can make millions writing in books and staying in Congress for the rest of her life. She got a degree in economics from Boston University!!! Her economics 101 course debunks all of this. She is a demogog and a phony.

      • Ziiggii says:

        She’s no normal freshman Congress Critter. What freshmen do you EVER remember pushing such legislation so quickly after becoming a member?

      • Right to reply says:

        Yes, and very dangerous when someone like Bezos proposes to her!

      • webgirlpdx says:

        Also part of this was to rebuild every. single. building. in the country in the next 10 years.
        I think you’re on to something Ready. She is a con…..and all her socialist/greenies are falling for it.

      • hoghead says:

        Ready, the horror of all this is that she does believe it. Her “degree” in economics isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. I had a little bit of college, and a lot of railroad work, but I instinctively know more about economics than this boob. (Did I say “boob”? I’m sorry, I meant to say BOOOOB!)
        Occasional stinko’s degree allowed her to tend bar somewhere, but now she wants to upend our society to chase her marxist vision that apparently has been pounded into her puddin’ head since she learned to talk. Her “ec 101” course doesn’t debunk anything, because they gave her a degree when she doesn’t have the faintest idea how economics works.
        Talk about child abuse! Taking a young child, full of wonder, and filling her skull with marxist mush so that she sees the world through some indoctrinator’s eyes.
        Now multiply that by the millions of kids in the US edumacation system. If the Republic is lost in the end, this will be the reason. Sad. Needless.
        I wish POTUS would somehow pull the Dept. of Ed. out by the root and plow the damn place under.

        • Rhoda R says:

          I have to disagree a bit. She knows that this is totally undoable, but that’s not the point. Her followers don’t know that – you’re absolutely correct about the dumbing down by our universities. She, like Bernie and the other ‘leaders’ of this socialist movement, plan to be on top raking in all the mullah that they are robbing from us. Socialism is real good for the folks in the upper tier – everyone else is screwed.

    • farmhand1927 says:

      Interesting since the Obama’s and Val Jar pretty much run the programming now at Netflix. “Sandy” (apparently that’s a nicname) does possess alot of the same America Last, Break America’s Back wet dreams that BHO has.
      Pelosi came out of the shutdown with a 28% approval rating, then she got taken to school at the SOTU presiding over a bunch of weak women that had to dress alike and prompt each other when to stand or clap because they can’t make an identity for themselves.
      Today, Revolution Sandy introduces a new New Deal so nutty only squirrels can love it, and she wants to take away Nancy’s plane! We reap what we sow, Madame Speaker.

      • steph_gray says:

        SO SO glad I dumped Netflix. Just finished watching all of Last Man Standing on Hulu – it was great fun!

    • Top Cat says:

      Since energy will cost more subsidies for everyone.

    • 335blues says:

      THE GREATEST MISTAKE YOU CAN MAKE IS TO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A
      “SOCIALIST WING” OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.
      THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS WELL HID THEIR TRUE IDENTITY AS THE PARTY
      OF SOCIALISM/MARXISM/COMMUNISM.
      There are no wings. Look at how they vote as a block. Where are the “wings”
      in how they vote?????
      The democrat party IS the party of socialism/marxism/communism.
      Open your eyes and understand or America will fall.

      • Ziiggii says:

        ?, why does everyone want to put their comments at the top – even if it has no relation to the comment there?
        WTH? Why is this a reply to my comment?

    • kiskiminetas says:

      I am sure the Democrats who run the party are regretting AOC being in congress. The woman is naive and stupid.

  1. Mars Belmont says:

    She is deeply stupid.

  2. starfcker says:

    I wouldn’t dismiss it out of hand. Some of it is perfectly logical. Replacing airlines with high-speed rail would be awesome. If we started now, we could totally transform our transportation system in less than a hundred fifty years and probably only would cost us maybe 700 trillion dollars.

    • Publius2016 says:

      thats their stupidity! if we got out of the way, Amtrak and national rail could be replaced with a consortium of investors for high speed rail…the issue is replacement!

    • sickconservative says:

      Double that if done by Gov’t and will lose billions every year like Amtrak.

    • nimrodman says:

      “700 trillion dollars” – good one, star
      Mazie don’t like it either:
      Plan calls for making airplanes obsolete and investing massively in high-speed rail lines
      ‘That would be pretty hard for Hawaii,’ Sen. Mazie Hirono, from the Aloha State, said Thursday

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6679905/Green-New-Deal-Electric-cars-ban-airplanes-farting-cows-4-6-TRILLION-infrastructure.html
      … although there’d be a boon in the luggage industry as all Hawaii travelers replace their aircraft-friendly suitcases with 1930s-era steamer trunks

      • 1stgoblyn says:

        Aw, c’mon, Mazie. Can’t you just swim to the mainland? You’re all wet anyway, so who’d notice anything amiss?

      • ?Gunny66 says:

        Actually high speed rail in Hawaii would be the perfect place to start……
        Not much distance between islands…..
        Japan has high speed rail all up and down the island
        Amtrak already has the “right of way” for their rail lines and if they switched to high speed rail they could finally make some money.
        Whoever has traveled on high speed rail…. it is extremely nice.
        Just sayin…

        • lemmus1 says:

          All new Hawaiian vacation attraction – the AOS Special – high-speed intra-Volcano steam-powered rail with heat-exchangers …one-way ticket on a once in a lifetime tour of Dante’s Inferno – guaranteed to melt your heart …sign me up!

      • Risa says:

        Actually Mazie, the fact no one would be able to afford vacations, except for our ruling overlords, would wipe out Hawaii’s tourism. No need for planes, except private ones for the Elites!

    • webgirlpdx says:

      Sen. Crazy from HI said trains would be really hard for her state 🙂

    • tonyE says:

      • sickconservative says:

        • 1stgoblyn says:

          We can’t forget ole Charlie Rangel. Remember, all those NY residents voted for him election after election after election.

    • Attorney at Law says:

      Did she? Or was it the fraud, the left enjoy utilizing?

    • Charlotte Powell Brooks says:

      I know it’s nothing compared to the entire gov’t., but taxpayers are footin’ the bill for this genius. The enormous waste that already exists, the slow motion mode on getting anything done that is actually doable, and now we’re getting this. She would make Will Rogers want to cut his own throat with a butter knife.

  4. Publius2016 says:

    and you can keep your doctor!

  5. LKAinLA says:

    I knew she would over reach. The people who voted her in made her feel smart because they are not. I mean that sincerely. People like her can never get the bills paid. It takes real life experiences to make things happen and households to function. She is a know nothing, camera ready, Kardashian generation embarrassment. Thanks NY.

  6. mikebrezzze says:

    If we bring back the guillotine, she’s first !

  7. wlbeattie says:

    Sorry to disagree – but IMO she’s not even that smart!

  8. California Joe says:

    I think “Almost Occasionally Coherent” is more accurate!:

  9. vfm#7634 says:

    Average Puerto Rican IQ is 87. Average black American IQ is 85. This suggests the average Democrat IQ is about that.

    • Fake Nametag says:

      Well, if those numbers are actually correct you have to assume most of the smarter ones vote Republican. For every average IQ (100) voter that voted Republican, the democrat would have to have an IQ of 70 just to average it out. If a genius level black American (IQ 130) voted Republican it would take someone of IQ 30 to vote for the democrats to balance it out. Sounds about right to me.

  10. Deb says:

    The goal is to make the progressives look so foolish, Dems will embrace the losers like Biden. Then once they are in office they can continue to shove this “deal” down our throats incrementally.

  11. Rachel Guess says:

    The ‘occasional cortex’ has never needed any assistance in making her look like an idiot…she does a great job of it all by herself…LOL
    Truthfully, while I am completely opposed to her agenda and her politics, I do admire her gumption in being willing to take on one of the big dnc operatives in the primaries. She did the legwork herself and pounded the pavement hard, and managed to kick him out of his seat, so kudos to her on that score. However, as a freshman, one thing is abundantly clear…she needs to keep her mouth shut for a while, pay attention, and learn the system because you can’t be a good legislator while being a community agitator, and she has made it abundantly clear that is her main priority. She is an embarrassment to her district and her office and will be likely be tossed out if she doesn’t get her proverbial ducks in a row.

    • Publius2016 says:

      • nimrodman says:

        “males should urinate in an empty milk jug”

                  Burt Reynolds and the “Brakeman’s Friend” in the football / self-help-movement satire “Semi-Tough”
                  Hilarious film, worth a watch. Spoofs football the EST movement, known for its seminars where they berated people and wouldn’t let them take bathroom breaks. Bert Convey plays the guru and is on-the-money smarmy.
                  Burt does a great job, I thought.

          Very good point! How incredibly sexist is it to insinuate that males can pee into a jar and females can’t? How dare she suggest that women are less capable than men! And what about transgenders – she completely ignored them and inferred that there are only two genders! She needs to be sent to inclusivity training immediately!!

      Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got her BA in “Economics” from Boston University — the same school my daughter went to… I have emailed BU demanding an AOC refund.
      And GND co-author Ed “Mister Frosty” Markey is not making parents of Boston College grads very comfortable either…
      Why “Mister Frosty”? Because a political opponent once claimed Markey “had never worked a day in the private sector”… Markey vehemently took offense to the charge and said he had indeed worked in the private sector earlier in his life…
      “What job?”… Driving a neighborhood ice cream truck.
      So we have the Good Humor man and a cocktail waitress in a Mexican restaurant leading the “massive transformation of our society”…
      God help us.

  13. farmhand1927 says:

    Someone should bird dog her on Fridays to see if she flies back and forth to NYC on the weekends.
    The ‘no fly zone’ Miss Charlie Manson Eyes is declaring across America will certainly put Grandma Nancy in a bind since she’s used to ultra deluxe flights complete with top shelf booze and plenty of Air Force and SS armed guards riding along to keep her safe. And to answer her every beck and call.
    What a laugh riot to hear the Dem presidential contenders all knocking each other down to be first to sign on to this ‘revolution’. Yes, yes, run on that, please.
    As foolish as this girl is, no doubt she’s got quite a past. Hope she’s ready for what her own party will dig up once leadership is ready to send her packing. The Dem’s are quite experienced and successful in creating lies, deflecting blame, fomenting crises out of thin air and other forms of railroading a person simply because they disagree with them.

  14. MIKE says:

    What is she, still in fourth grade? This must be a joke. Certainly the DSA can think of more convincing utopian bulet points.
    Then again, they know that within a Month after trying to survive with “renewable”, “sustainable”, “unpossible” energy sources, the entire rest of the world will be attacking and overrunning our once great nation.

  15. alliwantissometruth says:

    Absolutely ridiculous? Of course it is. These are the views of a child, an ignorant fool “educated” in our schools, where social justice takes the place of traditional tried and true proper education
    Yet what’s not ridiculous is the ever growing population of third world peasants and our own home grown social justice nincompoops who elect these absolute idiots into our halls of power
    Yeah it’s funny now, but in ten years, how funny will it be if we have a big number of these nitwits ruling over us?
    I’ll tell ya, all of the past nonsense we allowed while we were asleep at the wheel in this country is starting to hit us like a ton of bricks

  16. PInky1920 says:

    The mexibeaver is letting the entire party’s agenda out. They all want the same thing, only they don’t want people to know all at once.
    They will have to shut her up very soon. She’s impatient and they don’t want the frog jumping out of the water, it’s just too soon.
    It will be hilarious watching what they do to her.

    They took JIll Stein’s GND. Handed it a cartoon version of a politician, and she pressed aluminum foil over the face of the bill. Took the shape but none of the contents. Not that Jill’s plan was good or great, but Jill offers studies and a financial plan.
    The democrats appropriated the Green party’s GND, gutted it, and then handed it to the most non-competent politician without also helping her add backing plans and cost analysis.
    The Democrats are effectively creating stones to throw at the green party ideas.

Their hatred and anger have made them irrational…..bat schitt crazy.
    This woman is drunk on her own celebrity and too stupid to understand who and what she is up against. Nancy and friends are going to shut this woman up. AOC is going to pay a high price for what she is doing. She really needs to watch her back. Better than Seth Rich watched his.

      They put her on the banking and finance committee but I have serious doubts that she can answer “what is 2+2?”

    • Agree.
      If people and press totally ignore her, she will go away and wilt into the background. She is just an extreme “Look At Me” millennial. She is like Hollywood people always needing attention – good or bad. Just give me attention. She is too dumb to argue with or discuss rationally because she has no ability to reason.
      She is the ultimate brain dead cute attention demanding millennial. Product of FB, TWTR, etc. total life style. How many clicks and likes is what her life is about. Their worst fear is that nobody will recognize them or respond to them.
      So give her a total blackout and she dies.

    • Vince says:

      The question is, which helps President Trump more, giving her attention, or ignoring her? President Trump himself poked her with a stick at the State of the Union address by promising that we would never become a socialist nation. He obviously thinks pushing the democrats to the left helps him.

    • Republicanvet91 says:

      I disagree. I think she needs as much attention as possible. She is already a massive thorn in Pelosi’s side. Pelosi likely wants the same things as AOC, but is not dumb enough to say them out loud. AOC says them out loud, and many of her followers too ignorant to to know who Che Guevara was start wondering why Pelosi doesn’t support her.
      AOC and her nutty following will show American voters how crazy the left has become. She puts her whole socialist thinking into this bill for everyone to see, and while Pelosi might want the same things, Pelosi knows she has to be sneaky about getting them done.
      AOC makes it difficult for the left to be sneaky.

    The USA does not have the Natural gas storage or pipeline volume, to run every power station, manufacturing plants, and heat everyone’s home in the dead of winter.
    This was shown here in Michigan and Minnesota, during the “Polar Vortex.”
    What manufacturer, would build in the northern climates, when their electric and heating bills, will be increasing TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME, due to say, three cold winters in a row?
    The polar vortex, caused natural gas shortages, in Michigan and Minnesota, and the cold weather lasted only for a week.
    Plus, as stated in the article, we are paying for this, as taxpayers. Then the CROOKED utilities, get to fleece the taxpayers again, by depreciation of their new citizen funded windmills.

    I’m all in with ya AOC! Now I suppose you and congress will lead the way and show us how to live this way. Start now by using only electric cars to get back to your district–West Coast and Hawaii members will like this one.
    Only eat local DC grown organic farm goods.
    Only use hospitals powered by solar and wind. And forget most of that medical equipment because it’s made with petroleum products.
    Only wear hand raised, gathered, spun, and sewn clothes of wool, hemp, or cotton. Oops, skip the wool–methane producers, so you can skip your leather shoes too.
    Turn off that energy wasting air conditioning in the capitol and enjoy the fresh air!
    And if I remember the average mean wage per household is around $52,000, which must be a living wage because half the population earns less and lives, so make sure congressional households(not just members) only earn that the same livable wage.
    Start with just those few items for the first year and I’ll see how congress does before I jump on the band wagon! Shucks, I’ll even buy you a ticket for your green powered ocean train!

      What better way to get rid of the “troublesome” people than using so-called green energy to control food production? It wasn’t predicated on green energy, but the Bolsheviks starved the Kulaks by forcing them to send all their grain to feed the cities. Those who tried to pick up the few kernels left in the soil after harvest were shot. The Kulak farmers were successful enough to have risen from peasant to middle class status, and Communist theory requires the elimination of the middle class. There is more than one way for government to perpetrate genocide.

  63. jack says:

    There is something about AOC that seems very child-like and playful and kind-hearted, … she is cute … and expresses herself in sort of innocent way. I can see the appeal of her. Also the early christian church , the first 2 centuries had the idea what they all put money into a one pot and help each other to get by. The kingdom of God is OPEN to those that have hearts like little children. But the part that is missing is “you must be gentle like sheep but wiser than wolves!” 🙂
    I don’t think she is “wise”, she is cute though, in a spontaneous way and she is in OVER HER HEAD … and over-whelmed by all the people advising her. She could grow up to be Conservative in 20 years ( I know she is 29-30 years old now).

At the end of the night, when it came time to split the $560 in tips she had gotten at the bar, Ocasio-Cortez gave the waitress only $50. After the waitress complained to her manager, her take was doubled to $100. “It says so much about her character. From that point on, I wouldn’t talk to her. I couldn’t look at her.”

It includes a 10-year commitment to convert “100 percent of the power demand in the United States” to “clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources,” to upgrade “all existing buildings” to meet energy efficiency requirements, and to expand high-speed rail so broadly that most air travel would be rendered obsolete.”
    No, that is NOT what she has written! It was “tear down all existing buildings” and eliminate “all” oil-based transportation. Will there be electric airplanes? How will that work? 😉

      I work with the agriculture industry. Many people, liberals in particular just don’t realize how much energy it takes to produce food and fiber to support ours and much of the world’s population. Many have never driven through, never seen, never experienced, the hundreds of millions of acres of farmland across great swaths of the US. They have no idea how much energy, particularly diesel, it takes to produce our food. In 2012 alone crop production consumed 250 trillion BTU’s of liquid fuel and livestock production 150 trillion BTU’s. You simply can’t run 400 hp tractors over thousands of acres in remote locations with alternative fuels. Even organic agriculture consumes as much or more diesel per acre notwithstanding the massive increase in tillage and erosion that would ensue if we went totally organic. These people don’t think these things through.

        The Monolith. The opening scene of “2001: A Space Odyssey”.

      A scene from 2001 Space Odyssey of un-evolved man finding something above their capability to understand.

      • nimrodman says:

        I think the film also implies that the higher-intelligence “being” responsible for the obelisk imparted greater intelligence to the tribe of proto-hominids.
        I think the sequence was – obelisk appears – primates fawn and jump all around it –
        – and then the next day they face off a rival tribe, gesturing and fighting with fists and such.
        – then, one of the primates who had experienced the obelisk, grabs a femur bone from an animal carcass of dried bones on the ground, and uses it to whack a rival primate. Then his pals also pick up bones and lead a charge against the rival tribe, vanquishing them
        – implied is “first use of a tool” and maybe secondary implication is “first use of a tool in conflict / warfare – although that’s reaching
        – but implied is that obelisk forces contributed an evolutionary jump for the bone-wielding tribe, imparting advanced knowledge and fostering further evolution
        – final scene in that segment is primate tosses the bone skyward, where the camera zooms in on it as it rotates through the air; then the bone dissolves into a similarly elongate space station revolving in space to create it’s internal gravity – a masterful dissolve, I think
        My read, YMMV

        • felipe says:

          Nimrod, OK, was that straight from memory? If so, I am mightily impressed with your memory retention skills. Otherwise, yes, that is my understanding of what was implied by the monolith on a couple of different levels.

          And..the obelisks ratio of dimension is 1:4:9 or the first three squares.

    • mr.piddles says:

      It’s the “monolith” from the opening scene of “2001: A Space Odyssey”. So the real question is: what is the significance of the first scene (titled “The Dawn of Man”) of the movie? You could get really deep into the symbolism etc… but my uneducated interpretation is simply that it represents human evolution (the “beginning of man”), which continues through space exploration where more monoliths are discovered, which further points to the next “phase” of evolution. There’s a fetus floating in space at the end, which, I suppose, symbolizes “the dawn of a new age” of evolution. (I think)

      • Dutchman says:

        It was a clever msrketing campaign; make a movie, with lots of special effects, and an intriguing story,…but no one can figure it out,….until you read the BOOK, which then enables it all to make sense.
        The obelisks seeded the universe, and tested animals on each planet. When they found the smartest, on earth it was monkeys, they gave them ambition.
        The obelisk projected images in their minds of them having enough food, being secure, etc.
        That motivated them to fight another group of monkeys, to establish their TERRITORY.
        Were the obelisks from God, Satan or some advanced race? When the result of the experiment (man) discovers the obelisks, it sends a message out into space, and so astronauts are sent to investigate, and they ‘meet their makers’, and er something like that.
        Sorry, memory fades,…

        • Zaza says:

          “My god, it’s full of stars…”
          I think Arthur C Clarkes original concept was for the Obelsiks to be something akin to the worm hole in the movie Interstellar, a combination “black hole/worm hole” or dimensional gateway. I think he later backed away from that and switched to the story we saw in 2010, YWMC likely because readers would be more accepting of a “new planet” in our solar system than actually leaving it for a new galaxy.
          The 2010 movie had Cold War metaphors as we USA astronauts had to travel with Cosmonauts to check out the “disturbance” on Io, while the cold war became hot back on earth.

        • John says:

          Excellent reply. Arthur C. Clarke penned three more sequels: 2010, 2060 and 3010. All were very agnostic referrals to advanced “energy” existant entities that aren’t constrained by space or time.
          Beating around the “burning bush” IMHO.

    • Crabby says:

      I think it was from a movie… planet of the apes or something?

    • James Carpenter says:

      It comes from the Stanley Kubrick film “2001, A Space Odessey”. The apes in contact with the monolith are placed on the track to become homosapiens. Fast forward, “Pan AM” runs scheduled fights to a moon colony. A second monolith is discoverd when people are exploring the moon and it broadcasts a powerful beacon signal which is determined to be aimed at Jupiter. A mission is sent there where another mono;ith is found which transports the one surviving astronaut to a room where his life is shown quickly advancing to old age. Laying in bed, about to expire of old age, another (smaller) monokith appaers and transforms him into a star child gazing at the Earth. Basically a presentation of alien superior beings taking a hand in our evolution, leading us to greater and greater things
      .
      And now, here we have AOC, offering another monolith to us knuckledraggers.
      Ar you ready to stroke her superior, alien offering and go to the next, wonderful step?

    4) The details of the NGD are so outrageous that there is NO WAY independents will vote for anyone who approves of and endorses it.

    When high-minded idealists release a Communist Style Green Manifesto over an entire nation, it should be masterfully well written, detailed and a reasonably defensible document. But most importantly, it should be carefully timed so it will appeal to a vast audience.
    When Marx and Engels released their 1848 “Communist Manifesto,” (that did invoke enormous change in some duped nations) many of the “Workers of the World” were not exactly living prosperous lives. Life was often “nasty, brutish and short.” The dismal living and working conditions of most workers and their families was not a theory. They were living it.
    In 2019, based on a Climate Change Theory, the people of the world are supposed to give up their freedom and liberty to a Green Politburo and allow them to uproot their lives based on an ill conceived Green Manifesto. I don’t think so.
    Ocasio’s Manifesto has done serious harm to her cause. It was capitalism that lifted millions out of poverty and despair which is why Communist China has a major capitalist sector. Unlike Communism however, capitalism is mutable; so OC would have been wiser to continue promoting reasonable cost effective innovations and reductions in overall pollution, toxic waste and other environmental abuses rather than uproot the lives of millions when you haven’t a clue of the unintended consequences. ie. War, mass starvation.

    Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is battier than crazy Aunt Flouzzy, who people keep sequestered in their attic lest their friends find out about her. The difference between Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Aunt Flouzzy is that media simply cannot get enough of AOC. With any luck at all the whole liberal/socialist establishment will be hoisted by their very own AOC petard.

    • I’m persuaded by SD’s (implied?) argument that AOC and the GND are a Deep State/Uniparty ploy to make whichever globalist pro-infantacide anti-American “serious” candidate the Uniparty annoints as the 2020 Democrat nominee look “moderate” and semi-reasonable by comparison.

        Farmhand: Well, I will take a stab at explaining this!
        You see back in the day, Julius Ceasar surrounded a walled city of socialist Gauls. Being good socialists, they had naturally failed to store enough food for a long seige.
        To solve the food shortage, the socialist Gauls expelled all of the young, sick, crippled, and old, useless people from the walled city figuring Ceasar would take care of them!
        However there was one slight problem! Julius Ceasar didn’t have enough food to feed both them and his legions!
        So Ceasar wisely elected to keep the useless hungry socialist mouths trapped between his legions and the city’s walls.
        Mother Nature soon showed up but didn’t provide and these poor ex-socialsts started getting hungry and dying!
        Finally things got so bad the socialist inside the city walls couldn’t take the suffering anymore and let their useless ex-socialsts back in!
        Julius Ceasar soon dispatched all of the socialists in the walled city!
        The end!

I agree completely that the solution does not lie in correcting, reorganizing, restructuring, or changing the personnel of these agencies. The vast majority need to be abolished, which is why I called for “abolishing the federal DOE and returning control over the public schools to the states.”
          They can be funded as appropriate through federal block grants to provide support in addition to local funding, but each local community may choose HOW to manage and control their respective school systems. Of course, along with the demise of the federal DOE, should also come the demise of the federal teachers’ union. No one organization outside of the US congress, has done more harm to our children, than the federal teachers’ union…….that is, our children which survive to see the world after birth.
          I graduated from public high school in 1984, and we were still REQUIRED to take both U.S. Government and Economics, our senior year, in order to graduate. We were taught the difference between capitalism and communism – that communism is the natural enemy of capitalism. Capitalism is the economic engine of freedom, while communism enslaves its masses to the benefit of only the despotic few, who maintain control by force. We were taught the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the three branches of government and their respective powers and duties. Somewhere along the way, the public schools stopped teaching those truths, and every last one of us should DEMAND that our taxpayer funded schools return to teaching “Common Sense 101.”

          • swissik says:

            Like my own children who graduated in 1980, 82 and 84! I look back and realize that they are most likely the last generation receiving a decent public school education here in Cali. Now the state is pushing for mandatory early childhood education starting at the age of 2. I am not sure where its at as I have no dog in that hunt, but just yesterday the local paper here stated that our local Kindergartens are changing from half to full days. Gives them so much more time to brainwash the kids, doesn’t it?

            • BebeTarget says:

              That was the socialists’ agenda all along . . . .separate children from their parents and then put the children in government schools/daycare . To this day, I believe many parents STILL have no clue as to what their children are being taught (brainwashed). We are seeing the results today, yet people still do not “get it.” Getting rid of the DOE and the teachers’ union is a good start. An interview with AOC’s teachers would be interesting.

            • De Oppresso Liber says:

              I would politely disagree with your contention that you do not have a dog in this fight….whether or not we currently have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or whatever attending public schools, we are ALL affected by the outcome of the current brainwashing, or rather more accurately, the absolute “radicalizing” of our younger generation(s) into “progressive social/enviro-justice warrior neocommunist snowflakes.”

      I did an analysis of Obummer’s cutting CO2 by 80% eons ago. It means we have to go back to life in the 1700s because COAL was used in the 1800s.
      The average for the USA is 335.9 million BTUs per person. (Total population: 246,081,000)
      (wwwDOT)nuicc.info/?page_id=1467 or (wwwDOT)fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R40187.pdf
      In 1949, U.S. energy use per person stood at 215 million Btu.
      epb(DOT)lbl.gov/homepages/Rick_Diamond/docs/lbnl55011-trends.pdf
      The U.S. in 1800 had a per-capita energy consumption of about 90 million Btu.
      (wwwDOT)bu.edu/pardee/files/2010/11/12-PP-Nov2010.pdf
      If the USA reduces its energy consumption by 80% it equals 45.18 million Btu. per person however lets use the 1800 consumption level of double that, about 90 million Btu. per person. Since part of that consumption will be Wind & Solar according to the Green Lunatics.
      What does that mean?
      The site inventors(DOT)about.com/library/inventors/blfarm4.htm helps us figure that out.
      Farmers made up about 90% of labor force  in 1790 and 69% of labor force in 1800. (2.6% in 1990)
      About 250-300 labor-hours required to produce 100 bushels (5 acres) of wheat with walking plow, brush harrow, hand broadcast of seed, sickle, and flail in 1830. (This is all by hand not animal power BTW) (1987 – 2-3/4 labor-hours required to produce 100 bushels but that takes lots of oil.)
      1810-30 saw the transfer of “manufacturing” from the farm and home to the shop and factory. It wasn’t until the 1840′s that we saw factory made farm machinery, labor saving devices and chemical fertilizers became at all common. It was in the 1860′s that kerosene lamps became popular.
      Also up until the 1850′s dung and wood were the major source of energy.
      dieoff(DOT)org/page199_files/image002.gif
      http://dieoff.org/page199_files/image002.gif
      In other words for the USA to use HALF the energy per person that was used in 1800 we must abandon ALL factories and 90% of the population must return to subsistence farming using animals if enough farm machinery can be produced.
      Remember in 1800 there was only 2% of the current population in the USA. Solar and Wind just are not going to produce enough power to keep us in anything but a few lights, a few wells and if we are lucky a refrigerator for the entire town. FACTORIES use a huge amount of power and that is why cotton mills and other primitive factories were built on rivers.
      Anyone who tries to tell you differently is talking baffle gab because at present less than 9% of the US labor force is in manufacturing. The USA got rid of most of its really energy intense industry like smelting the ores to make machines. The USA shipped its factories to China and I mean that literally because I knew a guy whose business was packing up and shipping factories in New England to Israel.

    The Democrats’ latest heroine might not be quite the early Christmas present they had hoped for as scandal after scandal engulfs the newly elected Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). People are often judged according to those with whom they associate, and in the case of AOC’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, the congresswoman-elect may well find herself destined for trouble.
    Saikat Chakrabarti is a highly motivated, smart guy. A Harvard grad, he founded a web tools company, Mockingbird. He is a founder of Justice Democrats, the PAC set up with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, was instrumental in getting AOC elected, and is presently going through congressional training to learn how to become an effective chief of staff for the Dems’ golden girl.
    Based on a recent clothing choice, Chakrabarti might justifiably be considered a Nazi sympathizer. But really? Well, yes. In his latest love-fest video for AOC, Chakrabarti is sporting a tee-shirt that features a portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. Not familiar with this former Indian head of state? Here a few facts:
    Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.
    Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.
    The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.
    Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.
    Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

    Where well meaning commentaries go very wrong on the topic of socialism is to conflate socialism with forms of government. Socialism is an economic philosophy, while the government system required to implement socialism is (and always has been) totalitarian. Starting with that basis in fact one can state socialism as practiced has been a failure. As practiced, socialism since 1917 has been a tyranny of a controlling rich elite, governing through a class of elite politicians and academics. I lump the media with the politicians. The miserable failures include the defunct Soviet Union as well as the exiting states of Venezuela and of Nicaragua and in Africa, and China Incorporated.
    That is the truth President Trump was declaring in the State of the Union Address, with respect to socialism. In the face of a populous that values individual freedoms as well as the right to decide ones own future, socialism will always fail.
    This may seem like splitting hairs but is a required basis of understanding. As the democrat party trying to foist a socialist economic platform on the US has to be forced to admit that they will also drive the US away from being a Democratic Republic, to becoming a dictatorship, in order to implement their plans

Economic growth, to them, is a bad thing in and of itself. Wealth, in the hands of private individuals, equals 1) independence from government and 2) social mobility. Therefore the increase of private wealth is the same thing as decrease in power and control. So, it is no accident that the focus of these leftist busy beavers is the energy sector. In history, any increase in human access to energy, whether by food sources or by harnessing processes from the natural world, has been the precursor to population growth and expansion. So if the power of the political state can’t keep up, they feel threatened and afraid. But it’s fun to watch them freak out in the face of genuine US economic expansion.

    I’m going to run for some kind of democrat nomination. Three words: “Solar. Powered. Jetpack.”

    Ben Stien said it best about AO Kotex-“She doesnt know her ass from her elbow”. AOC takes low IQ to a entirely new below zero level.

    The epitome of Socialist Utopianism.
    Also the epitome of ignorance, idiocy, and insanity.

    We’ll have to return to slavery and child labor to do the work machines won’t be doing. Then, we’ll somehow need to make our own stuff because those six month voyages to get stuff from overseas will be so inconvenient.

    • Meanwhile, as the US slips further and further into the 19th Century, the rest of the world will wage the 3rd and 4th World Wars (hi-tech version), and we will be left unscathed as we are not a threat to anybody!! I get it now… brilliant!!!

    AOC was set up to look like a fool and I worked all last night making the sun rise this morning.

    The more I think about this “Green New Deal,” the more the whole thing stinks – and not because it is ludicrously stupid. No, it stinks because of the timing. Right on the heels of a disastrous shut-down for Democrats that hurt no one and accomplished nothing, right on the heels of an amazingly successful SOTU by President Trump that totally blew up in the Democrats’ faces, right on the heels of the pro-death pinnacle of evil in New York and other states, right on the heels of the PoundMeToo revelations and racist outpouring from the Virginia Democrat leadership, and right before next shut-down and likely cave by Democrats on the border wall… after all that, this GRN is issued to get everyone riled up. And issued by the darling of -SOME- on the left. It all smells like a giant distraction meant to get everyone thinking about something else and, at the same time, damaging the liberal darling Occasional Cortex. It all seems rather clever really. And that worries me. Who is pulling the strings on all these weaves and dodges and lightning fast shifts in focus?

  232. KinderandGentler says:

    “Occasional Cortex” is good – I also like “O’Crazio”….

  233. …Oh yeah, and “Green New Raw Deal” – Thanks Laura Ingraham!

    This is just like Obama-care, a huge socialist wish list, written over decades, waiting for somebody with enough popularity to release it. Much like little o and o-care, Queen Commie Mama had zero to do with writing this, unless this was a homework assignment at BU. The Sewer State in DC wrote this, and she is hungry enough, and foolish enough, to proudly put her name on it.

  235. Rockitz says:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Adam Schiff – Twin siblings of different mothers? Note the identical bug-eyed appearance, radical left ideology, and moronic intellect.

  236. Steve says:

    This woman is just a DNC operative, a shock trooper. She’s saying all this; and then the “level headed ” progressives will put forth a “reasonable alternative ” and the silly RINOS will vote for it.

      All cows will be fitted with moofflers to cut down and on fart emissions. If moofflers are successful other animals that fart to much will receive modified moofflers designed to fit each aninal. There will a task force of fart police that will be in charge of making sure these animals are in full compliance. The biggest problem I can see is getting politician’s to wear moofflers. Seeing that politician’s by far are the largest violators. Less face it they do nothing but talk shit and shit all over us. Cows pale in comparison. If anyone has any idea how to bring politician’s in to compliance please email AOC with your ideas.

  237. Samuel says:

    I hope I am wrong, but I suspect that she is doing this for name and face recognition for “future” plans.
