It turns out the Green New Deal is even too extreme for even the solar and wind industry — especially its elements that extend far beyond energy and climate policy, according to Reuters.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was on Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday night and the whole interview was one big gushfest with Meyers playing the role of the president of the "AOC" fan club.The freshman Democrat congresswoman who is known for her gaffes and bumbling through interviews, didn’t receive any tough questions from Meyers. Instead she was given the fawning, Hollywood celebrity treatment by the host, while being invited to freely tear into her conservative critics.
Dinosaur media outlet Time magazine awarded Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a gushing cover story for the April 1 issue, rhapsodizing over the “phenom” who is “the best storyteller in the [Democratic] Party.” Ocasio-Cortez’s hard-left brand of socialism is portrayed positively and Time national correspondent Charlotte Alter found no time to mention the cow farting and airplane elimination removal part of the Green New Deal.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a recent rehash of recurring tropes, but also features a strange apologia for radical liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as well as the distinct odor of censorship.
One of the rotten fruits produced by what passes for today's American education system is the ignorance some young people have about socialism. According to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios, the news and information website, Generation Z (comprised of those born in 1995 or later), “has a more positive view of the word ‘socialism’ than previous generations, and — along with millennials — is more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations.”
Reacting to a new poll showing 65% of Iowa Democratic caucus-goers support the Green New Deal, on MSNBC Monday afternoon, Politico’s Jake Sherman found it “absolutely stunning” that the policy proposal from left-wing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was enjoying so much support among the party’s liberal base.
It was a tale of two very different stories Monday morning, as both NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning reported on 2020 Democratic candidates speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. While NBC celebrated potential contender Beto O’Rourke as a “home-state heavyweight” and hailed left-wing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as one of the “brightest stars” at the liberal event, CBS actually pressed Democrats on the issue of socialism.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims that “the world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change.” The people at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change agree, saying that to avoid some of the most devastating impacts of climate change, the world must slash carbon emissions by 45 percent by 2030 and completely decarbonize by 2050. Such dire warnings are not new. In 1970, Harvard University biology professor George Wald, a Nobel laureate, predicted, “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
In 24 hours, NONE of the flagship morning and evening news programs for the Big Three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) saw fit to inform viewers that liberal darling, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was facing serious accusations of campaign finance violations. If true, those allegations carried possible jail time.
The “fact checkers” keep sounding like they’re merely doing aggressive spin for the Democrats. On February 25, PolitiFact flagged Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) as “False” for writing in an Orlando Sentinel op-ed that the Green New Deal has a goal of “ending air travel.”
Rolling Stone gave liberal women in Congress the rock star treatment in their March issue, with glowing interviews and glamorous photo shoots. The “Women Shaping the Future” are Speaker Nancy Pelosi and "the new voices of the House" Reps. Jahana Hayes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar.
How much would a Green New Deal cost? That’s the $93 trillion question some media outlets won’t ask.
New estimates suggest the price tag of the climate and economic ideas contained in the Green New Deal promoted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could cost $93 trillion, Bloomberg.com reported. That’s a very green deal, indeed. However, the evening newscasts ignored the new information about the Green New Deal the day the American Action Forum released its cost estimate as well as the day after (Feb. 25 and 26).
