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 […]

Patients may be forced to abide certain requirements to keep the system more “efficient.” ~  Arnold Ahlert   ~     “Fat shaming doesn’t need to end; it needs to make a comeback. Some amount of shame is good. We shamed people out of smoking and  into wearing seat belts. We shamed them out of littering […]

Beware Feeling The ‘Bern’ On Climate

September 1, 2019 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ So says the presidential campaign website of Bernie Sanders. This U.S. Senator from Vermont, now 2nd time presidential candidate, and socialist without apology, is leaving nothing to chance. He’s just come out big – really big – for a Green New Deal. Bernie Sanders’ Green New Deal is less about the […]

Bernie’s $16 Trillion Green New Deal — $150,000 Per Household

August 29, 2019 by

1

From the team at CFACT ~ Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has announced a Green New Deal proposal he says will cost $16.3 trillion. Divided among America’s 120 million households, that equates to nearly $150,000 per household. And that is in the unlikely event that Bernie’s plan comes in on budget. We all know how […]

The Green New Deal: Less About Climate, More About Control

August 22, 2019 by

1

By Nicolas Loris and Kevin Dayaratna ~ If someone asked you to describe the Green New Deal, what would you say? According to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., it’s a “bold idea” that would “create millions of good-paying jobs” and help “rebuild communities in rural America that have been devastated.” Oh, you thought the Green New Deal […]

Thank You AOC!

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ Thank you, AOC for your “public service!” We’re serious…sort of. At a time when politicians and pundits have focused most of their attention on the outrage of the day and a core set of issues in the culture wars, AOC […]

Reality Bites Joe Biden’s “Clean Energy Revolution”

June 19, 2019 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently announced his “Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice.” While it might be viewed as a Green New Deal Lite, the plan would inflict enormous economic, environmental and societal pain on most of the nation, for no climate benefits. First, as I’ve noted here […]

Socialists Ruin the Environment

June 3, 2019 by

1

The extreme Left may hawk the Green New Deal, but its track record is woefully poor.  ~ Michael Swartz  ~    The steady drumbeat of speculation about the “i-word” (impeachment) has pushed America’s political mindset away from the s-word: socialism. But it’ll be back soon, wrapped in the cloak of “climate change.” Despite what’s predicted […]

The Green New Deal’s Epic Transportation And Commerce Fail

June 1, 2019 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ On the surface, the Green New Deal (GND) sounds enlightening.  Use a nonexistent super grid of renewable intermittent electricity energy to replace fossil fuels so we can all breath air with no emissions from energy production. But the renewable term in all these cases is not energy in its totality, but […]

‘Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment’

May 18, 2019 by

2

Joe Bastardi  ~     Apparently, the new strategy to fight climate change is shock therapy. It’s like today’s environmental crusaders are channeling the Ramones song “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment.” Here are some illustrations. Example #1: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said she was only kidding around when she made a big deal about the world ending […]

Fear, Loathing, Intolerance – And Worse

May 17, 2019 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Throughout history despots had effective ways of reducing dissension in the ranks. Inquisitors burned heretics. Nazi’s burned books – before taking far more extreme measures. Soviets employed famines, gulags, salt mines and executions. ChiComs and other tyrants starved, jailed and murdered millions. Today’s Green New Dealers and their allies have mapped […]

San Antonio Cooks Up Its Own “Green New Deal”

May 16, 2019 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The recent defeat of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” in Congress may have given some the impression that her grandiose and bizarre scheme to transform the United States into a green Utopia was finished, once and for all. Nothing could be further from the truth. While […]

Beyond Partisan Ideology and Big-Oil Interests: Why Climate Skepticism Thrives

May 9, 2019 by

4

Cornwall Alliance   ~        By Vijay Jayaraj ~   It is easy to associate climate skepticism with the Republican Party and climate alarmism with the Democratic Party. It’s also easy to brand skeptics as beneficiaries of big oil and proponents of unfettered capitalism and alarmists as in the pocket of big wind and solar […]

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, […]

Mark Green, U.S. representative from Tennessee’s 7th congressional district, offers his perspective on freedom.  ~ Mark Alexander  ~    “Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.” —Thomas Jefferson (1781) Editor’s Note: Mark Alexander has a family commitment today, so standing in for him […]

NY Times’ Peters Plays Defense For Dems: Trump’s ‘False’ Attacks On Green Deal, Abortion

April 15, 2019 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ In Saturday’s New York Times, political reporter Jeremy Peters tried to inoculate Democrats against supposedly “false” Republican attacks on the issues of abortion and socialized medicine., “G.O.P. Hones Blunt, Misleading Attacks on the Democrats.” Republican leaders are sharpening and poll-testing lines of attack that portray Democratic policies on health care, the […]

We’re told climate change is going to end the world, but the solutions are terrible. ~ Roger Helle  ~   I have to say, I was somewhat troubled when I heard that in just 10 years, life as we know it is going to end … or something. When I listened to the explanation of […]

Big Donors Pave Youth Group’s ‘Road’ To Green New Deal

April 12, 2019 by

By Kevin Mooney ~ A self-described army of young people devoted to climate change activism are taking their show on the road to build support for national Democrats’ Green New Deal and to counter business interests that favor fossil fuel use. The Sunrise Movement first attracted media attention when hundreds of its followers organized sit-ins […]

2020 Climate Madness Looms

April 6, 2019 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The year 2020 is shaping up to be one of madness when it comes to the climate change debate. Several huge milestones are in the cards and these cards are on the table. One is the US Presidential election, where the entire world wants to see if President Trump can […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Debate Green New Deal To Lay Its Nonsense To Rest

March 13, 2019 by

By Larry Bell ~ Uber-left lunacy has launched climate hysteria and fossil fuel replacement fantasies to record stratospheric levels. Such clueless fictions are being trumpeted to advocate policies which would have disastrous consequences to our national economic and social well-being. A growing public awakening to the transparent ignorance and socialist agendas driving this craziness make […]
