We’re all veterans of the liberals’ environmental “blame game.” But what’s the real deal regarding pollution on our planet?

It seems we are bombarded by liberals in our country, shaking their fingers at us, and perpetually making us feel guilty for our standard of living, and for “trashing” the world’s environment on a daily basis.

blame 4

We hear “The evil United States is to blame for the world’s air pollution, global warming and ‘climate change…,’ with all of our evil factories, evil cars, evil trucks, and evil farting cows!”

blame 9

blame 8

We hear “The evil United States is to blame for polluting our oceans, especially with our evil plastic bottles, our evil plastic this and our evil plastic that.”

We hear that we must adopt the democrats’ “Green New Deal” policies, which would set out economy back 200 years, in order to pay our environmental dues and save our planet.

blame 6

blame 7

What’s really going out there, however?

According to data from the World Health Organization, regarding air pollution and air quality per city:

INDIA has 13 of the top 20 worst cities.

CHINA has 23 of the top 50 worst cities.

CHINA has 44 of the top 75 worst cities.

CHINA overwhelmingly dominates the list in general.

But wait!  How many U.S. cities are in there and where do we rank on the list you are probably asking?

NOT EVEN ONE U.S. CITY APPEARS ON THE LIST OF THE 500 WORST CITIES!

Let me repeat that.

NOT EVEN ONE U.S. CITY APPEARS ON THE LIST OF THE 500 WORST CITIES!

How can that be, you might be asking?

How are the democrats allowed to get away with all of this misrepresentation and disinformation regarding the environment?

blame 5

The answer is the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is a co-conspirator in this environmental charade.

blame 12

blame 13

Okay, okay, but what about saving our oceans?!

What about the polar bears and the whales?!

According to Earthday.org website, the United States ranks number 20 on the top twenty list of ocean polluters.

Yes…, we’re last on that list, and a distant last at that.

How can that be, you might be asking?

How are the democrats allowed to get away with all of this misrepresentation and disinformation regarding the environment?

The answer is the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is a co-conspirator in this environmental charade.

All of the other countries on this ocean pollution list account for 2 times, 3 times, 4 times, 5 times, 6 times, 10 times, and 32 times the amount of ocean pollution the United States is guilty of!

And who’s at the top of this list?

Well if isn’t our old friend CHINA again!

blame 10

blame 11

So the next time you hear some liberal crying about the environment and demanding we flip our country upside down and turn it inside out to save the planet…, tell them to take their story walkin’…, over to China and India, for starters.

blame 15

And tell them they can take their “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” with them!

New York City Mayor, Bill (de Bozio) de Blasio, announces his own “Green New (Bad) Deal.”

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.”

blasio1

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.

blasio 6

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.

blasio 4

“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?

blasio 7

“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.’”

Too funny.

“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!

blasio 5

“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?

Impressive.

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.

blasio 8

blasio 3

“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.

The nerve!

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.

Bingo!

‘“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?

Deal or no deal? No deal!

The “Green New Deal” failed its vote, to just begin the debate on the resolution, in the Senate 0-57!

That’s ZERO in favor of this whacky socialist proposal.

Zero!

But there are a hundred senators, you may recall.  So why are there only 57 votes?

Because 43 of our esteemed guardians of democracy (senators) are complete and utter cowards…, that’s why.

They chose to not vote “yea” or “nay,” but voted “present” instead.

The “Green New Deal,” is a sweeping democrat proposal, dreamed up by some of the more liberal and socialist leaning members of The House  of Representatives, for dealing with climate change, and a favorite topic of discussion of the current democrat presidential candidates.

green-new-deal-revealed

NONE of them chose to go on the record here in the senate and support this socialist dream scenario gone wild.

Not Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, not Sen. Amy Klobuchar, not Sen. Elizabeth Warren, not Sen. Cory Booker, not Sen. Kamala Harris, and not even Sen. Bernie Sanders could muster up the courage to cover the bill for the checks their mouths have been writing regarding “The Green New Deal” while on the campaign trail.

green new deal

Like I said…, cowards, and misrepresentative shysters.

“The Green New Deal” is really less about climate change and more of a “radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy,” as described by Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY.

In keeping with their usual incomprehensible ramblings, the democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called the vote a “sham vote” that aimed to draw attention away from a real debate on the consequences of climate change.”

Ooooooooookay.  So let me get this straight.  This vote to begin debate on “The Green New Deal,” which is a proposal to deal with climate change, is a vote “aimed to draw attention away from a real debate on the consequences of climate change,” according to comrade Schumer?

“Climate change is an existential threat, and confronting it requires bold action,” Sen. Kamala Harris said in a statement following the vote.”

I guess voting “for” the “Green New Deal” wasn’t a “bold” enough action for her.

“Today’s #GreenNewDeal vote is a partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action, and give Republicans cover to put oil lobby checks over our kids,… I don’t play ball with bad-faith farces.  ” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted after the vote.

My first question is “what the hell are you talking about?”

My next comment, Sen. Gillibrand, would echo my reply to comrade Schumer.  So you’re saying this vote to begin debate on “The Green New Deal,” is a “partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action…?”

Again…, amazing.

“[McConnell’s] stunt is backfiring and it’s becoming clearer and clearer to the American people that the Republican Party is way behind the times on clean energy and that Democrats are the party willing to take action,” added Senator Schumer, who also asked, “… What’s the Republican Party proposal?  Is it more coal?”

If I may…, most conservative Americans believe that even if humans are capable of affecting the global climate, there’s not a damn thing we (The United States alone) can do about it now that is going to make one bit of difference.  We, of course, would prefer “clean” energy, and we want to move in that direction, but not a pace that would sacrifice our standard of living and our economic health.

How’s that for a response?

Isn’t that entirely reasonable?

CNN chimed in with an incredibly insightful observation when “reporter” Ted Barrett stated that the “Green New Deal” stalled in the Senate after, “largely political debate.”

You don’t say Ted?  Political debate in the Senate?  Really?  Who’d a thunk it?

Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX, correctly pointed out that “The Green New Deal,” “is a “radical environmental policy that also includes Medicare for all, free college, and guaranteed jobs.”  “You might as well throw in free beer and pizza!” he added.

Some administrative workers in the Senate claim to have heard Mr. Schumer whisper to his friends, “Hey…, ya…, we could spring for the pizza and beer if that’s what it would take.”

0-57.

Just more WINNING.

And I’m not getting tired of it yet!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…, yes…, you are an idiot.

Patrick Moore, the co-founder of the environmentalist group “Greenpeace,” ripped into New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the weekend, calling her a “pompous little twit,” and saying the Green New Deal plan she’s advocating is “completely crazy.”

aoc

This is a damning statement coming from someone who is a legit and historically important environmentalist.

For nearly 50 years, Greenpeace has been sailing the world’s oceans protecting our planet and fighting for environmental justice.  From obstructing nuclear tests in the Pacific, to documenting plastics in our oceans; from conducting research into the effects of climate change in the Arctic, to stopping shiploads of illegal timber leaving the Amazon; from bringing humanitarian relief to communities devastated by extreme weather to collaborating with local authorities to arrest illegal fishing operations.

According to Alex Pappas of Fox News, “In a series of tweets, Moore argued Ocasio-Cortez, who has called for drastically reducing fossil fuel production, doesn’t realize what would happen across the world if the radical plan were implemented.”

‘“If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating,’ Moore said in a tweet Saturday directed at Ocasio-Cortez. ‘You would bring about mass death.’”

“Referring to the New York Democrat as a ‘pompous little twit,’ Moore said, ‘You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities.’”

“Moore also unloaded on her for calling climate change ‘“Our World War II.’”

‘“It’s her @GND [Green New Deal] that would be worse than WW2,” he said. ‘Imagine no fuel for cars, trucks, tractors, combines, harvesters, power-plants, ships, aircraft, etc. Transport of people & goods would grind to a halt.’”

“In another tweet, Moore called the Green New Deal ‘so completely crazy it is bound to be rejected in the end.’”

“He also referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a ‘garden-variety hypocrite,’ in response to a New York Post story that said the democrat frequently used gas-guzzling Uber and Lyft rides during her 2018 campaign instead of taking the subway station near her campaign office.”

‘“You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know,’ Moore said.”

“Ocasio-Cortez responded to that story over the weekend saying she’s ‘living in the world as it is.’ But she said that shouldn’t be ‘an argument against working towards a better future.’”

aoc 2

It’s all a matter of perspective I guess.

Nobody is opposed to working towards a better future, unless your method of doing that destroys our future!

‘“The Green New Deal is about putting a LOT of people to work in developing new technologies, building new infrastructure, and getting us to 100% renewable energy,’ she said.”

Is there anything stopping the development of new technologies now?

Is there anything stopping the building of new infrastructure now?

The sticking point is that last one about “getting us to 100% renewable energy.”  It’s just not realistic.  Especially when she wants the United States to be “emissions free” in 10 years.

This is because she is predicting “our world will end in 12 years if we don’t change our ways.”

Her plan of course doesn’t take into consideration any other country on our planet…, just the United States, and we are already one of the best performing countries in the world regarding pollution and emissions.

I would agree with Patrick Moore that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has no basis for her claims and no common sense regarding her “Green New Deal” demands.

Why the democrats would allow a “know nothing” idiot like Ocasio-Cortez to drive their environmental and economic agenda is beyond me.

On the other hand, I guess that’s just the way the democrats are doing business these days.  They are choosing to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

So, what the heck is this “Green New Deal” anyway?

Well, first of all it’s NOT a law.  It’s more like a “game plan” or a “road map” to follow.

It’s a liberal/socialist/environmentalist manifesto in the same vein as the Communist Manifesto.

Yes…, that’s exactly what it is.

Let me be your guide about something you will be hearing about non-stop for a long time. The “biased, liberal, fake news media” will be getting their propaganda machine cranked up into overdrive for this one.

The people that put this “Green New Deal” resolution together were either high on drugs, extremely naive, extremely confused, stupid, or some combination of all of the above, in my opinion.

So…, let’s see exactly what we have here.

This resolution validates all of its proposed actions based on the October 2018 report entitled “Special Report on Global Warming [of 1.5 degrees centigrade]” by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the November 2018 Fourth National Climate Assessment report.

If the report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is to be believed, humanity has just over a decade to get carbon emissions under control before catastrophic climate change impacts become unavoidable.

At the rate our government works, I guess we should all start planning our funerals, or preparing to live underground, and stockpiling food and water, because nothing is going to happen over the next ten years to fix our environment, if in fact it is broken, and if in fact it is our fault.

The United States is already the most environmentally friendly country, among major industrialized nations in the world by the way.  You sure wouldn’t know this by the way the “biased, liberal, fake news media” demonizes the USA on a daily basis.  Is China, Russia, India, Germany, The United Kingdom or Japan on board with any of this?  Because we surely cannot effect global climate change without global participation.

If the Paris Climate Agreement is any indication of the level of global participation we could expect, we’re in trouble!

In the Paris Climate Agreement, which President Trump wisely backed the U.S. out of, all of these other countries pledged their support with flowery environmental words and swore to meet the new pollution regulations AFTER the U.S. had piloted the proposed pollution levels for the first 10-20 years of the agreement!

Such determination!

Such support!

Such disingenuousness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The resolution consists of a preamble, five goals, 14 projects, and 15 requirements. The preamble establishes that there are two crises, a climate crisis and an economic crisis of wage stagnation and growing inequality.

The goals are: achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, creating jobs, providing for a just transition, and securing clean air and water.

The projects are things like: decarbonizing electricity, transportation, and industry, restoring ecosystems, and upgrading buildings and electricity grids.

Our liberal/socialist/environmentalist friends have managed to incorporate virtually all aspects of our society, economy, employment, racial issues, gender issues and government into their “end all, be all” “primary directive.”

The document itself is not even 14 pages long, so please, read it for yourself if you get the chance.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at some excerpts taken directly from the resolution:

“Whereas climate change, pollution, and environmental destruction have exacerbated systemic racial, regional, social, environmental, and economic injustices (referred to in this preamble as “systemic injustices”) by disproportionately affecting indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this preamble as ‘‘frontline and vulnerable communities’’); Whereas, climate change constitutes a direct threat to the national security of the United States…”

Say what?

Are you starting to get the point?

This new Raw Deal…, I mean Green Deal, is your typical “bleeding heart” bunch of politically correct mumbo jumbo.

Here are some of the more detailed goals taken directly from the resolution:

“Upgrade all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification.”

Well gee…, that doesn’t sound expensive at all.

“Spurring massive growth in clean manufacturing in the United States and removing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and industry as much as is technologically feasible, including by expanding renewable energy manufacturing and investing in existing manufacturing and industry.”

What exactly is meant by “spurring?”  I’m guessing it means spending more money.

“Working collaboratively with farmers and ranchers in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector as much as is technologically feasible…”

“Working collaboratively” mean dictating unmanageable pollution standards.

“Overhauling transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically feasible, including through investment in zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and manufacturing; clean, affordable, and accessible public transportation; and high-speed rail.”

“Overhauling transportation systems” sounds like a lot of money…, again.

“A Green New Deal must be developed through transparent and inclusive consultation, collaboration, and partnership with frontline and vulnerable communities, labor unions, worker cooperatives, civil society groups, academia, and businesses…”

This last part is just a bunch concepts that sound good, but will never actually happen.  Just like with The Affordable Care Act legislation, there will be nothing inclusive or transparent about it.

“To achieve the Green New Deal goals and mobilization, a Green New Deal will require the following goals and projects:”

“Providing and leveraging, in a way that ensures that the public receives appropriate ownership stakes and returns on investment, adequate capital (including through community grants, public banks, and other public financing), technical expertise, supporting policies, and other forms of assistance to communities, organizations, Federal, State, and local government agencies, and businesses working on the Green New Deal mobilization.”

“Making public investments in the research and development of new clean and renewable energy technologies and industries; directing investments to spur economic development, deepen and diversify industry in local and regional economies, and build wealth and community ownership, while prioritizing high-quality job creation and economic, social, and environmental benefits in frontline and vulnerable communities that may otherwise struggle with the transition away from greenhouse gas intensive industries.”

Mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money!!!

“Ensuring the use of democratic and participatory processes that are inclusive of and led by frontline and vulnerable communities and workers to plan, implement, and administer the Green New Deal mobilization at the local level; ensuring that the Green New Deal mobilization creates high-quality union jobs that pay prevailing wages, hires local workers, offers training and advancement opportunities, and guarantees wage and benefit parity for workers affected by the transition.”

“Ensuring the use of democratic and participatory processes that are inclusive of and led by frontline and vulnerable communities and workers” means only selected “enlightened” liberal individuals and groups will dictate to all of the rest of us “knuckle-draggers” what to think.

“Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.”

In the government world “Guaranteeing” something means there will be no budgetary concerns.

“Strengthening and protecting the right of all workers to organize, unionize, and collectively bargain free of coercion, intimidation, and harassment; strengthening and enforcing labor, workplace health and safety, antidiscrimination, and wage and hour standards across all employers, industries, and sectors.”

“Enacting and enforcing trade rules, procurement standards, and border adjustments with strong labor and environmental protections, to stop the transfer of jobs and pollution overseas; and to grow domestic manufacturing in the United States.”

Hasn’t President Trump already pretty much taken care of this one?

“Ensuring that public lands, waters, and oceans are protected and that eminent domain is not abused.”

This means eminent domain will be abused.

“Obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of indigenous people for all decisions that affect indigenous people and their traditional territories, honoring all treaties and agreements with indigenous people, and protecting and enforcing the sovereignty and land rights of indigenous people.”

Here’s your “bone” Native-Americans!

“Ensuring a commercial environment where every businessperson is free from unfair competition and domination by domestic or international monopolies; and providing all people of the United States with: high-quality health care; affordable, safe, and adequate housing; economic security; and access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature.”

This last section, and the last section of the resolution, is kind of a catch-all.

According to David Roberts for Vox.com, “The question of how to pay for the many public investments called for in the GND [Green New Deal] is still a bit of a political minefield. There are centrist Democrats who still believe in the old PAYGO rules, keeping a “balanced budget” within a 10-year window. There are Democrats who think deficit fears have been exaggerated and there’s nothing wrong with running a deficit to drive an economic transition. And there are Democrats who have gone full Modern Monetary Theory, which is way too complicated to explain here but amounts to the notion that, short of inflation, the level of the deficit is effectively irrelevant, as long as we’re getting the economy we want.  That discussion is just getting underway, and the better part of valor is to do what the GND resolution does: say nothing about it. Leave it for later.”

Just in case you’re keeping score at home, the Green New Deal includes a “federal job guarantee,” the right to unionize, liberal trade and monopoly policies, and universal housing and health care.

In other words, “Hello Socialism…, here we come!”

Some of this stuff is even too far left for Nancy Pelosi!  She is actually coming under some attack for even having the slightest bit of skepticism about some of the goals in the Green New Deal!

Remember the name Rhiana Gunn-Wright.  She has apparently been tabbed to be the architect of any official policy platforms developed from the Green New Deal resolution.

“Obviously, figuring out how to fundamentally transform the world’s largest economy is a lot for one person to take on. When Gunn-Wright was asked if she knows what she’s gotten into, she laughs. “It’s really exciting!”

Do you mind if I ask if this person has ever really done anything regarding any of this stuff, or is she just working from a theoretical stand point?  Has she ever had a non-political job?  Does she really know anything about economics?

“If you have more money or access to power, you can either opt out or pay to make it simpler,” she says. “The people who will have to go through all the mess are generally poorer people, with the least access to power.”

So it’ll be just like usual…, with the rich liberal entertainers, athletes, businessmen and politicians being exempt or being able to “buy” their way out of the policies the rest of us are forced to deal with.  Again…, “do as I say not as I do.”

David Roberts for Vox.com Thinks, “Gunn-Wright’s command of the issues, coupled with her unapologetic belief in the public sector to “shape markets and direct innovation,” coupled with her evident concern for the low-income and working classes, make me excited to see what New Consensus produces.”

So…, apparently Mr. Roberts is just as clueless as the authors of the resolution, Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ms. Gunn-Wright and all of their partners in crime.

Ocasio-Cortez calls for 100 percent renewable electricity within 10 years, but very few policy experts believe that is possible.

By their own admission, the top three challenges facing the GND are paying for it, convincing the public, and winning over Democrats.

Roberts adds, “In the real world, if the GND looks like it has any chance of becoming a reality, it will face a giant right-wing smear campaign, coordinated across conservative media, think tanks, and politicians, funded by effectively unlimited fossil fuel wealth. The right will rush to define the GND as a silly, ridiculous, naive, unaffordable government boondoggle meant to destroy your way of life and funnel your taxpayer money to Democratic constituencies like illegal immigrants.”

That’s because, Mr. Roberts, the Green New Deal IS “a silly, ridiculous, naive, unaffordable government boondoggle meant to destroy your way of life and funnel your taxpayer money to Democratic constituencies like illegal immigrants.”

Trumpeting the truth about this foolishness is not a “right-wing smear campaign,” it’s just a matter of combating the propaganda of the “biased, liberal, fake news media” and the rest of “the swamp.”

Well, there you have it.  I hope this helped.

Like I said…, we’re not going to stop hearing about the Green New Deal anytime soon.
