Posted on 06/27/2018 2:19:23 AM PDT by Libloather
QUEENS, N.Y. ― Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs stunning primary victory over powerful U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in the working-class New York district stretching from the Bronx to Queens is likely to propel her avowedly left-wing platform into the Democratic mainstream as the 2018 midterm elections heat up.
But her detailed proposals to deal with climate change could prove among the most influential at a time when the Democrats have failed to rally around any policy that could feasibly reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically enough to make a difference.
Ocasio-Cortez outlined plans to transition the United States to a 100 percent renewable energy system by 2035. Its a goal hailed by environmentalists as the last best hope of staving off the most catastrophic effects of human-caused planetary warming, and its one already adopted by a coalition of mayors representing 42 percent of U.S. electricity use and representing major cities such as Atlanta and St. Louis.

Thanks for the warning. Doesn't it seem a bit odd that the folks that go 'all in' on the global warming hoax are socialists?
Just another draconian certified nut in Rat Camp.
Hopefully shell be SUPER-SHRILL and OFF-PUTTING. In that heavily RAT District shell be a lock for the November general election.
Ok, how many jobs has she created so far in her lifetime? And hiring a Mexican to cut her lawn doesn't count …
As for the "new deal" who is going to pay for all this baloney? I thought so …
She appears calm.
Next mayor, Senator, Governor of NY? Will be youngest female Democrat congressman?
You sound excited. Just another NYC leftist that has no to little appeal outside of hard blue areas.
Excited, no but she will touted as the new face of Democrat party future.
And I thought Nancy Pelosi had a new face. /s
Democrats throughout US need to copy her extreme left agenda.
Bet no one in MSM will call her a left wing extremist.
So they replaced a possible Democrat Speaker of the House with an infantile idiot Bernie clone who will get tons of media attention and pass ZERO legislation in her entire career.
Keep it up Dems. You are doing our work for us.
Ahh ha! Shes a social justice warrior who promises everything. Hopefully, for the sake of her idiotic constituents who voted for her, shell be good at constituent service because she sure wont be delivering on her promises.
In hard-blue RAT districts across America, thousands of twenty-something Bernie Sanders supporting Starbucks baristas and bartenders are saying Damn, why didnt I think of running fo Congress?.
She’s a communist, and I couldn’t be happier that the battle lines are being drawn. There is no longer a political middle ground; it’s right or left and I’m fine with that.
Stalinist Red to the core.
So they replaced a possible Democrat Speaker of the House ....
Should be very worrisome to Pelosi & her old guard - this was quite the upset in more ways than one. As for Cortez, I don’t see her being a “leading” Democrat on much of anything. First & foremost, she’ll be a wet-behind-the-ears newbie with a lot of silly ideas and no clout. The media is trying to make lemonade out of lemons.
This extremely Radical Person will have more power .
We are becoming more like Far Left France every day.
Proof shes just another free stuff Democrat.
The "pro-military" della Pia, BTW, supports the Iran nuke deal, thought bribing the Iranians was fine, snd says we can't pull out of the "treaty".
A self-designated Socialist gets elected in a district with 50%+ Hispanic population. This is what is being brought from Latin America when we have unfettered immigration and illegal entry.
