New York City’s mayor, the honorable (cough…, cough) Bill “de Blozio,” takes yet another step out towards the abyss of the whacky left with his latest proposals and intentions.
With politicians like de “Blozio,” they may have to rename Florida “Southern New York,” considering the mass exodus of New Yorkers fleeing to Florida in an effort to avoid being taxed into liberal oblivion.
According to Andrew O’Reilly for Fox News, “New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio faced a crowd of angry protesters Monday at a raucous rally promoting the city’s Green New Deal inside the lobby of Trump Tower, where the Democrat threatened President Trump’s family company with millions of dollars in fines if his buildings don’t comply with new environmental standards.”
Going off the deep end environmentally and attacking President Trump? Now that’s a winning liberal combination!
“Speaking in front of the same escalators where Trump launched his 2016 campaign, de Blasio blasted the President’s rollback of Obama-era environmental policies, his move to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement and his appointment of climate change skeptics to the Cabinet.”
These “fake news,” socialist-liberal, politicians are all the same. It’s all about appearance and promoting a narrative rather than dealing with facts and truths.
The TRUTH is…, the Paris Climate Agreement only required the U.S. to make any real changes which would continue to negatively affect our economy, while all of the other countries in the agreement got to sit back, take advantage of us in the meantime, and then probably renege on their commitments 15-20 years from now.
It was the typical, stupid Obama, type of deal that we became familiar with during his reign of anti-Americanism.
‘“His [Trump’s] buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said. ‘Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about.’”
In case you’re wondering, “How are these buildings causing pollution exactly?” They aren’t directly causing pollution, as the mayor and his friends would make it seem…, the buildings are indirectly causing pollution by their consumption of electricity and their consumption of fuels for heating, etc. It’s all about improving the efficiency of how these building use energy.
“De Blasio, who is mulling a Democratic presidential run, added: ‘We’ll take your money.’”
Oh…, no doubt Mr. Mayor…, no doubt. You actually mean “we’ll take MORE of your money,” don’t you?
“The mayor, though, was forced to shout for much of his speech amid jeers from a crowd of about a dozen protesters inside the lobby of Trump Tower, which also had music blasting over the speakers. A number of protesters rode up and down the escalator behind de Blasio carrying cardboard signs with slogans like ‘Worst Mayor Ever,’ ‘Failed Mayor,’ and ‘Trump 2020.’”
“De Blasio said he did not mind the protesters and added that it was ‘so nice for them to serenade us.’”
That’s a lie.
‘“They’re scared of the truth,’ he said. ‘Anyone that has a problem with saving the planet, I have a problem with them.’”
No…, we’re not scared of “the truth,” Mr. Mayor…, we’re scared of people who treat “fake news” like “the truth” and try to shove it down everybody else’s throats while grabbing money out of our wallets at the same time!
“New York City’s own Green New Deal plan – officially called The Climate Mobilization Act and modeled after the one proposed in Congress by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. – passed the City Council last month in a 45-2 vote. De Blasio has not yet signed the legislation but is expected to soon.”
You mean modeled after the Act Ocasio-Cortez proposed which failed on a 57-to-0 vote in The Senate, with all Republicans and four Democrats blocking the resolution, while 43 Democrats, including those who introduced the Green New Deal, voting “present?!” Is that the Act New York’s plan is modeled after?
Of course, as opposed to the U.S. Senate, New York’s City Council overwhelmingly passed this nightmare 45-2.
This is just another example, ladies and gentlemen, of why all of our democrat led major cities are in a death spiral right down their respective toilets.
“The main facet of the deal is the plan to clamp down on emissions from the city’s famed skyscrapers with a goal of reducing overall emissions by 40 percent by 2030. Buildings create almost 70 percent of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a recent survey.”
It’s really not the buildings, Mr. Mayor…, it’s those irresponsible people who work and live in these buildings who insist on lights and heat and stuff like that in order to work and live.
And here’s a newsflash, Mr. Mayor…, heating systems and electrical systems in these building will just naturally increase in efficiency over time as equipment fails and is replaced by newer and more efficient equipment.
There’s no need to go getting your undies all in a bundle!
That is unless you’re just grandstanding for political reasons.
‘“The first of any major city on the Earth to say to building owners, you’ve got to clean up your act, you’ve got to retrofit, you’ve got to save energy,’ de Blasio said last month. ‘If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings.’”
Does this include government buildings, Bill? Why do I see some sort of waivers built in for the government and other “friends of Bill?”
“Upgrades to buildings in order to meet the new standards are expected to cost owners around $4 billion – a figure that has the city’s powerful real estate lobby up in arms.”
Is that all?
‘“The bill that passed…will fall short of achieving the reduction by only including half of the city’s building stock,’ Real Estate Board of New York President John H. Banks said in a statement. ‘The approach taken today will have a negative impact on our ability to attract and retain a broad range of industries, including technology, media, finance, and life sciences, that provide opportunity and continued economic growth that is so important for our city.’”
So this would be consistent with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s belief that New York doesn’t need any more of those evil good paying jobs, Like Amazon proposed, for its citizens.
“New York is not the only major American city to push its own version of the Green New Deal.”
Really! Tell me more!
“Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti released a plan last month to make the city carbon neutral by 2050.”
Ahhh…, Los Angeles…, I should have known.
What would our country be without New York City and Los Angeles, besides much better off?
