  • The Green New Deal Dress Rehearsal

    06/06/2020 4:27:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | June 6, 2020 | Paul Driessen
    More than 1.4 million cases of Wuhan Coronavirus and 106,000 deaths in the United States alone have accompanied stay-home lockdowns, businesses bankruptcies, over 40 million unemployed workers, plummeting tax revenues and unprecedented debt. Ongoing rioting, vandalism, arson and looting are compounding problems for many cities and minority communities. But where many see disaster, others see opportunity. Some want to use the crises to enact laws and welfare programs they could never get otherwise. More ambitious activists see the lockdown as a blueprint or dress rehearsal for a total energy, economic and lifestyle transformation to “save the planet.” If three months...

    New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez repeated Democrat claims “white supremacists” were responsible for violence as riots raged nationwide over the death of George Floyd. “There are increasing reports and investigations that white supremacists may be infiltrating these protests, breaking windows and destroying property,” said an Instagram post by Ocasio-Cortez. “If anything seems off to you, DOCUMENT IT. Always check who is organizing,” (see tweets) ...The Democrats’ claims came as other tweets suggested that “far-right extremists” hope for more violence. But a report by did not provide any evidence that “white nationalists” were leading the riots: Far-right extremists are...

    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on the rich — but not pay her own. The Democratic socialist congresswoman from The Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture. AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint The Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012. As The Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate...

    New York lawmakers have some to the defense of congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez following a report which claims that her fellow democrats are avoiding her while they plan to combat the coronavirus. The report from the New York Post claims that Cortez's peers are ignoring her over fears she will overshadow the work they are doing to combat the virus in an area with one of the highest infection rates in the entire world. The report, based on unnamed sources, claims that Ocasio-Cortez "simply rubs many of her fellow New York Democrats the wrong way." Ocasio-Cortez has become one the most...
  • Ocasio-Cortez claps back at Jonah Goldberg: 'Totally get it if you've never bothered to read the legislation'

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) defended her Green New Deal initiative after The Dispatch editor Jonah Goldberg called the legislation a “fantasy.” “Totally get it if you’ve never bothered to read the legislation you’re commenting so authoritatively on,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. Jonah Goldberg Tweet: "Man this is so dumb and dishonest. You could confiscate every penny held by every billionaire and multimillionaire in America and it wouldn't cover a fraction of your Green New Deal fantasy. " Goldberg, a former National Review columnist, responded to a different tweet from the congresswoman suggesting higher taxes for the rich could have...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was bounced Tuesday from the Working Families Party ballot line by a Queens judge, raising the stakes in her potentially tricky Democratic primary fight for reelection. The firebrand lawmaker collected just 13 signatures from members of the small union-backed party, two short of what she needed to get on its primary ballot. Now, AOC won’t be on the WFP ballot line in the November general election either, said Martin Connor, a lawyer for Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, AOC’s opponent in the Democratic race. “AOC has hurt working people of the Bronx and Queens with her votes and creates disunity...

    AOC tells democratic socialists it's their 'responsibility' to 'create the conditions' for a general strike Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., indicated to the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) that they couldn't outright call for things like a general strike amid the coronavirus crisis, but should slowly change public opinion before proposing "alternative structures" for society. "You know, there's a lot of people saying, 'call for a general strike, call for a general strike,'" the freshman congresswoman said during a DSA video event on Tuesday. "The majority of Americans don't know what a general strike is and so our responsibility is to...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., condemned the use of three JetBlue aircraft that flew over New York City Thursday as a tribute to the medical community and first responders working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. JetBlue used three planes donned with New York City themes for a one-hour flyover over all five boroughs. The planes -- "I love NY," NYPD and FDNY -- were a tribute to first responders and "hometown health care heroes," the airline said. “Nothing like a corporate PR campaign that burns jet fuel at low altitudes over vulnerable communities dying from a respiratory virus...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) addressed the sexual assault allegation faced by former Vice President Joe Biden (D) during an interview with NPR on Thursday, explaining that it was not a "clear cut" situation for Democrats. Questioned on what she wanted to see happen in response to Tara Reade's allegation of a 1993 assault, which Biden has publicly denied, the New York lawmaker noted that Reade herself had not called on Democrats to abandon their support of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. "It's very difficult because this is a hyper-politicized zone, right? Instead of focusing on her account, instead of focusing...

    The dash to overnight millennial celebrity can take abrupt detours. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist from the Bronx in New York City, was propelled from an anonymous existence as a bartender after her upset victory in 2018 straight onto magazine covers, late-night TV and the top of every partisan love-hate list in America. It made her perhaps the most exposed and fixated-on House freshman in history. Today, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress - known simply as AOC - owns another distinction, this one far grimmer: She represents the nation’s most devastated hot zone of the coronavirus outbreak....

    Talk about dimwit. At a time when millions of Americans are demanding to be allowed to return to work, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling for a "work strike." According to PJMedia's Tyler O'Neill: "When we talk about this idea of reopening society you know, only in America does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean 'go back to work.' When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot of people should just say no — we’re not going back to that," AOC told Anand Giridharadas in the first...

    A resurfaced clip on "Larry King Live" in 1993 appears to show the mother of Tara Reade -- who has accused Joe Biden of past sexual assault while in the Senate -- alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator. In a telephone interview with Fox News on Friday night, Reade confirmed that her mother called into the show. Biden's presidential campaign has adamantly denied Reade's allegations but the video could be cited as evidence supporting Reade’s allegation – even though her late mother, in the clip, does not specifically refer to a...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., defended her "nay" vote during the House's largely bipartisan passage of a $484 billion coronavirus relief package on Thursday, calling it "too small." The progressive lawmaker -- whose state has been ravaged by the coronavirus, with the highest numbers of infections and deaths in the country -- said the bill left out any real aid for Americans struggling to pay rent or purchase necessities including food after being left jobless or stranded due to the virus. That, compounded with the lack of a timeline for another vote on additional aid, made her the single Democrat in...

    This week’s words of wisdom from AOC: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was the only Democrat in the House or Senate to oppose the $484 billion coronavirus relief package to replenish the depleted small business loan program.She argued her problem with the bill — which was overwhelmingly passed — was “giving Republicans what they want.” …and to be clear, her problem with them is they don’t want enough: “McConnell is already talking about the deficit the moment we talk about getting people relief,” she told CNN, adding: “That to me is a signal that Republicans are done.” AOC would clearly keep...
