May 6, 2020 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ Tuesday’s New York Times used the coronavirus pandemic to push both the leftist fight against “inequality” and left-wing politician Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She was fawned over in the lead National story slot, a full-page profile: “Lonely Voice in Congress Amplifies Plight of a Stricken District.” Mark Leibovich who recently hailed “eulogist […]

1

By Ben Shapiro ~ On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., sat for a discussion with author Ta-Nehisi Coates. She dropped a number of shocking statements—statements that elicited nothing but murmurs of agreement from Coates. AOC claimed: “No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars.” How, pray tell, are American billionaires responsible […]

October 22, 2019 by

By Cully Stimson and Henry Featherston ~ Rep.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently offered another unusual idea on Twitter: Abolish prisons. Seriously. The freshman congresswoman wants Congress to pass a law abolishing all prisons. Setting aside the fact that Congress has no authority to require states to abolish prisons, let’s take a look at her idea. Based […]

AOC’s Miami Hype

September 18, 2019 by

0

By Peter Murphy ~ We just can’t get enough of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her every utterance makes news, almost as often as our loquacious president of the United States. The latest from AOC is her warning to the residents of Miami and the state of Florida writ large who are on the front […]

5

From the team at CFACT ~ During a recent tornado warning for Washington DC, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) issued a tweet claiming the tornado warning illustrated that “climate change is real y’all.” Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet revealed just how little she knows about climate change. Ocasio-Cortez wrote in her tweet, “we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been […]

Happer Versus AOC: A Telling Contrast

April 24, 2019 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is by far the best known climate change alarmist today, having way surpassed Al Gore for that title. Gore is now something of a has-been in the fame department. On the other side, Will Happer is far and away the best known skeptic (not counting President Trump, […]

For Love Or Clickbait? Snopes.com Leaps To Correct Obviously Silly Ocasio-Cortez Items

April 18, 2019 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Snopes.com claims to be a fact-checking website, but its recent rash of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defense items suggests it’s a liberal clickbait site. There are five items just in the first 15 days of April. None of them evaluate if AOC mangled facts. They’re all on defense. — April 15: “Did U.S. […]

Senate Rude Awakening For Green New Dreamers

April 3, 2019 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ The terrifyingly naïve socialist Green New Deal (GND) proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offers the best example I can think of why 16-year-olds shouldn’t be given the right to vote. It’s not so much that I fear that Congress would actually succeed in enacting legislation to replace all fossil energy with windmills […]

America’s Past Shows Why Socialism Won’t Work

April 3, 2019 by

1

By Kay Coles James (President of The Heritage Foundation) ~ Socialism is trending in America. Politicians once ran from the term; now more embrace it. And polls show younger people are favoring it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., won a seat in Congress by promising free health care for all, free college tuition, and something called […]

Green New Deal Fails In The Senate

March 28, 2019 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The Green New Deal was designed to “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War II.” That’s how Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fact sheet pitched the plan. Yesterday it was shot down 57-0 by the Senate.  The entire Republican caucus and three Democrats voted against […]

By Rachel del Guidice ~ The Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected Democrats’ so-called Green New Deal, touted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a way of combating climate change. The vote was 57-0 against proceeding to debate, with 42 Democrats and one independent voting “present.” Among other things, the Green New Deal would require significant […]

March 22, 2019 by

2

By Scott Whitlock ~ 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 […]

Green New Deal Has New Cheerleader: Jorge Ramos

March 20, 2019 by

1

By Jorge Bonilla ~ Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a 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. Ramos’ column, titled “The Green Dream”, is arguably one of the first (if not the first) on-the-record […]

PolitiFact Slams Rick Scott As ‘False’ For Citing Actual Green New Deal Document

March 4, 2019 by

By Tim Graham ~ 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.” Just like the Washington Post “fact checkers […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., supported by at least eight prospective 2020 presidential Democratic-Socialist candidates and 40 acolyte lawmakers, plans to eliminate fossil fuels; make air travel obsolete using bullet trains; upgrade or replace every building in America to ensure energy efficiency; and ensure “economic security for […]

By Paul Driessen ~ 29-year old ex-bartender and freshman U.S. Representative (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received thunderous environmentalist and media acclaim when she introduced her Green New Deal resolution in the House and Ed Markey (D-MA) submitted it in the Senate.

The Left Wants To Transform Our Election System. It’s A Recipe For 1-Party Rule.

February 19, 2019 by

1

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Democrats intend to save “democracy” by putting themselves in charge of elections. As absurd as that sounds, it really is a part of the inappropriately named “For the People Act of 2019,” or H.R. 1, moving through the House of Representatives. The Heritage Foundation created a list of the law’s provisions, […]

The True Meaning Of That Green New Deal

February 14, 2019 by

1

By Lee Edwards ~ It would be easy to dismiss the Green New Deal as an impossible progressive dream, but that would be a mistake. The Green New Deal is not the bucket list of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow travelers, but a blueprint to turn America into a socialist state. It is the […]

NYT Heds, Beyond Parody: ‘Lawmaker’s Staff Flubs Green New Deal Plan, And G.O.P. Pounces’

February 13, 2019 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ It’s almost predictable at this point: Democrats embarrass themselves, and the media frames it not as a Democratic error, but as a case of cynical Republicans “pouncing” to take political advantage. The latest example was a brief New York Times story on the thoroughly botched embarrassment that was the launch of […]

California’s High-Speed Rail Failure Shows The Insanity Of Green New Deal

February 13, 2019 by

3

By David Ditch ~ Even California can’t apparently support high-speed rail. Just a few hundred miles of high-speed rail in California was well on its way to exceeding $100 billion in costs by the time of completion. As a result, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that the state will be massively shrinking the project. “Let’s […]

Media Misses: The Embrace Of The Green New Deal

February 10, 2019 by

0

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Democrats unveiled their latest version of the Green New Deal on Thursday, but despite some concessions to reality, this version is still little more than socialism masked as environmental policy. But that didn’t stop the media from fawning all over it. Where was the fact-checking when you needed it? Most media […]

Evening News Shows Ignore Crazy Socialist Green New Deal

February 9, 2019 by

1

By Julia A Seymour ~ Going “green” will require a lot of green, apparently. Two U.S. legislators have a proposal designed to require substantial changes to every building in the U.S., create rail “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” replace all “combustion engine-vehicles” within a decade, and guarantee everyone a “job,” higher education, […]

Green New Deal Would Barely Change Earth’s Temperature. Here Are The Facts.

February 8, 2019 by

By Nicolas Loris ~ Here’s the most important fact about the Green New Deal: It wouldn’t work. Ultimately, fully implementing the Green New Deal would have no meaningful impact on global temperatures. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., released their much-anticipated blueprint for a Green New Deal Thursday. And make no mistake: […]
