The Only Thing Green about AOC’s “Green New Deal” is Her

It should come as little surprise that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – the waitress turned socialist congresswoman who is responsible for many of the most head-scratching remarks to ever come out of a politician’s mouth – would be the one to pen the most laughably moronic proposal in the history of Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” was all the rage in the media this week, as they praised the congresswoman’s bold new vision for the United States. Even some prominent Democrats – including Presidential hopefuls Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar- quickly came out in support of the proposal. If you actually take the time to read Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal, though, you’ll quickly realize how fantastical and truly disastrous the “Green New Deal” really is.

It’s really no exaggeration to say that the “Green New Deal” paints a picture of a magical world where money grows on trees and all of the world’s problems are easily solved in a matter of years. For starters, the proposal calls for the United States to completely eliminate all use of fossil fuels within the next ten years – without the use of nuclear power, by the way.

In addition to calling for the US to completely eliminate both fossil fuels and nuclear energy at a time when no other viable alternative is available, Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal also calls for every single building in the United States to be replaced with a “green” building – all on the taxpayer’s dime, of course.

Other nonsensical proposals within the document include replacing all air travel in the United States with high-speed trains, free college tuition for everyone, universal healthcare, guaranteed employment by the government, the replacement of every combustion-powered vehicle with electric vehicles, charging stations “everywhere”, and the elimination of “farting cows”.

Perhaps the most ridiculous – and most dangerous – proposal in the “Green New Deal”, though, is Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to provide a basic living income to all Americans. The proposal guarantees “economic security” for anyone who is “unable or unwilling to work”. That last part is an exact quote from the document – in Ocasio-Cortez’s ideal world, not only are those who are unable to work allowed to live off of the welfare state, those who simply don’t want to work have the option of living off of someone else’s labor as well.

It’s difficult to estimate how much all of this would cost since many of the proposals within the “Green New Deal” are not even possible given our current technology and current system of government. However, it is safe to say that Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” would cost an awful lot of green. Ocasio-Cortez, though, urges us not to worry about the cost of her proposal, saying that it will “pay for itself” in little time at all through economic growth.

It’s one thing to say that tax cuts will pay for themselves through economic growth      since there is a direct, proven relationship between lower taxes and stronger economies. It is another thing entirely to say that stripping our entire economy of fossil fuels and telling people that they don’t have to work to get paid is a proposal that will “pay for itself”. Anyone even remotely familiar with economics will tell you that Ocasio-Cortez’s plan would devastate the US economy at a blistering pace.

If there is one silver lining here, it’s the fact that no one seems to be taking the “Green New Deal” seriously. While Kamala Harris did come out in support of the proposal, she admits that she did not actually read the document.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi, essentially patted Ocasio-Cortez on the head and told her “nice try”. Pelosi’s exact quote about the document was “it’s enthusiastic and I appreciate the enthusiasm”. If you can imagine a mother telling their five year old the same thing after they drew all over their bedroom wall, you won’t be far off from the current dynamic between Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi regarding the “Green New Deal.”

And yet, Ocasio-Cortez remains a sitting congresswoman and a “rising star” within the Democratic Party. Her supporters don’t care about the feasibility of her proposals. All they hear is the things that she is promising. Given the opportunity, Ocasio-Cortez will no doubt do everything she can to make those promises a reality – and quite possibly bankrupt the country in the process. The only thing green about AOC’s “Green New Deal” is her.

  1. Like!! Really appreciate you sharing this blog post.Really thank you! Keep writing.

  2. She needs to be tested. SHE is mentally incompetent!! AND the people that VOTED for herr need to watched CLOSELY because they are even MORE DANGEROUS!!! Wheres MY check??

  3. The Green New Deal is nothing but a manifesto for introducing/interjecting a socialist system into the US…. I’m glad this came out early and totally unorganized so that those that signed up for it (all of the liberals who are running for president) look like the fools that they are. Nothing like endorsing something that has nothing but dreams and wishes in it, and no plan or pathway on how to get there.

  4. The Green New Deal ignores the fact that fossil fuel, in particular diesel fuel, is essential for food production and transportation of products including food. The farmers tractors, harvesters and trucks that haul the wheat to the local grain elevator run on diesel. The train that hauls the grain from the grain elevator to the flour mill runs on diesel. The truck that hauls the flour to the bakery runs on diesel, The delivery truck that takes the bread to the store runs on diesel. In short no fossil fuel means no food for the cities. Then the city voters which the liberals rely on to vote them into office will starve!

  5. I agree and like most of what is proposed.
    Climate change is real. It is happening now, and it is getting worse.
    If you want to see climate change in action, go to Miami Beach or Norfolk Va at the monthly high tides. The ocean is coming in and flooding some streets and buildings, and it is getting worse. Also, the storms are getting worse, and more frequent, followed by doubt
    We have two choices. Take drastic action now, or wait for nature to take even more drastic action to protect itself. If we wait, man kind will most likely not be here to see the results of natures action.

  6. There are a lot of men in the USA that have already spent a significant portion of their life defending the USA from socialism and communism.
    it looks like we will need them to do it again.

  7. If the Global Warming hawkers, such as Al Gore, were in fact quoting scientific fact that the global warming was indeed taking place, then the attendant sea level rise would be swallowing up, in minute increments, the coasts of all the continents of the earth. But this Netherlands paper reveals: “the Earth’s coasts actually gained land over the past 30 years,” Nature Climate Change.
    This research revealed that the earth’s surface gained a total of 58,000 km2 (22,393 miles2) over the past 30 years with over 33,700 km2 (13,000 mi2) in coastal areas.
    “We expected that the coast would start to retreat due to sea level rise, but the most surprising thing is that the coasts are growing all over the world,” study co-author Fedor Baart told the BBC.
    “We were able to create more land than sea level rising was taking.”
    This does not sound like global warming- seas rising supportive evidence at all. So what is the reason behind the hysteria? False narrative. Lies and deceit. Manipulation of truth.

    The fact is, I have lived and been to the beaches of both Norfolk Va and Miami and Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and Key West as well as Aruba etc. etc. For a fact, the sea level has not changed. The docks I fished from some 50-years ago are still there and they are the same height above the sea as they were then. So, there is not an alarming sea level rise taking place. Rather, I have reviewed tide levels recorded over the past century, such as Key West, and the record shows cyclical rise and fall all during the year, each and every year and the total aggregate rise that can be documented for over 100 plus years is less than 6 inches. The yearly cyclical trend is 2.42 mm and the average increase in sea level (as has been recorded for the past 100 years) is .14mm per year.

    The fact is the sea is a complex machine. Al Gore and company proclaimed in 2006 that by 2016 Mount Kilimanjaro would be snow free, the ice caps would be gone and the shores of many countries would be under water with the bottom third of Florida covered in ocean. I live within 2 miles of the ocean and that has NOT HAPPENED!

  8. According to the climate scientist’s own data, if all signatories to the Paris Accord met their goals, the effect would have been a reduction of climate temperature of only 0.2 degrees centigrade in 20 years. The US agreed to contribute 3 billion dollars to a fund to help the other, less developed nations develop the technology to reduce their CO2 output. One of those nations was China, the second highest ranked economy in the world, only minimally behind the US and catching up fast. Meanwhile, no nation except the US was committed to reducing their emissions for 20 years, which would have cost our economy 25 billion dollars due to the changes required to meet our goals. Look it up.
    Amazingly, since pulling out of the Accord, the US has reduced its CO2 emissions by more than the next 3 biggest polluters COMBINED.
    None of this matters, since I have it on good authority that the world will end in 12 years.

  9. The problems lie with those who have no logic [AOC] , those who voted her in with no logic and the fact that she has shown strong bias toward illegals when it comes to breaking the law. American laws aren’t ” govern” for her heritage-who she believes the country should belong to or personal feelings. America is going to be in big trouble if this continues. ITS REALLY NOT WORTH THE LAUGHTER-ITS TIME TO PRAY !!

  10. Read the book. Dark Winter – How the Sun is causing A 30 year Cold Spell – By John L. Casey – Former Whit House national space policy advisor.

  11. That poor little dumb child Cortez. What do doctors recommend for mentally deficient children? Well I know from very many yrs ago the Kennedy’s put their mentally deranged daughter in a home, so she wouldn’t be out in the public’s eye,
    nor to bring embarrassment to the family! SOooo… could occia cortez be a member of a family (the liberal idiotic democrats) & they are just letting her embarrass them, until they are made fools of? (course, that’s what they’re doing
    anyway!) I wonder when Ms Pelosi & Schumer will ” throw her under the bus???” I guess for her district it must have
    been made up of 95% muslims was the reason she got herself elected! I can’t imagine how anybody that had a ‘lick of
    sense’ would have voted for her otherwise!!
    She basically represents ” ten-thousand 13 year olds, it sounds good to children, but when it all boils down to practicality
    it’s just plain stupidity! As my mama used to say “ignorance gone to seed.”

  12. Should your motive here’s to learn paintings
    on the market Melbourne or paintings for sale Brisbane, unfortunately but you can’t view it here.
    Waterslide paper is offered in clear or white however clear
    is a bit more preferred, since any type of unprinted
    locations around the image continues to be clear. As modern humanity
    exposes their tanned skin during vacations they enjoy to
    show off their pictures in online community websites.

  13. NO wonder that AOC stands for All Out Crazy….She Proposes a trip to the SUN but its got to be done AT NIGHT,,,,,,,,,Gues studying mixology got confused with ECONOMICS

  14. This work reveals a type of poetic mood and everyone would be attracted by it.
    Leonardo Da Vinci was created in the Florentine Republic on April 15th,
    1452. The public also serves enormous events from all areas of the globe.

  15. Leonardo lived in the own measured rhythm, try to cared about the quality
    of his paintings completely ignoring time it takes to accomplish the task.
    After the Bourbon Restoration, as the trial participant of Louis
    XVI, David was without the benefit of his civil right and property,
    and was made to leave his homeland to stay in Brussels where David also completed many works,
    last but not least died in a strange land. Matisse also
    had become the king of the Fauvism and was famous in the art circle.
