Alexandria Ocasoi-Cortez - Needs her own thread.....

Recommended Posts

Well - like DJT - She is not a polished politician......And SF learned a new phrase today.....

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ocasio-cortez-vows-to-run-train-on-progressive-agenda-in-bizarre-turn-of-phrase

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., used a strange – and sexually charged – phrase to describe to The Washington Post her plan for implementing a progressive agenda.

“... enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda,” the newly minted congresswoman told the newspaper.

The choice of words sent the Internet into a tizzy, as it has a well-known and highly disturbing connotation. According to the Urban Dictionary, to “run train” means “to gangbang” someone. The phrase was injected into more mainstream parlance in October, after a client of adult film industry lawyer Michael Avenatti claimed – with no evidence – that now-Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh “ran trains” on girls while in high school near Washington, D.C.

Perfect timing for a distraction from the Right Wing. She's their new poster child. She's a rookie Congresswoman. I wonder why Trump Groupies are so scared of her?

I take my hat of to her, she has a vision, she did the work to get where she is. I vehemently disagree with just about everything that comes out of her mouth, but she got off her ass and did it, so she does deserve some respect.

Venezeula Ocasio-Cortez and those of her ilk, are pretty much the TEA Party of 2010. D's lost the election, and they've ran to the left, and think this is how to "change Washington", then when they get there, they realize they're all just rookie congressmen/women. You can watch it playing out now, while VOC is out there stumping to any camera that will look at her medicare for all, Nancy Pelosi is meeting secretly with the insurance companies padding her wallet, and making deals.

Pelosi throws shade as Green New Deal unveiled: ‘Green dream or whatever they call it’: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi-ocasio-cortezs-green-new-deal-the-green-dream-or-whatever-they-call-it

Quote

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is set to release her much-touted “Green New Deal”on Thursday -- a package of far-reaching, big-government proposals like health care for all, federal job guarantees and a push to eliminate U.S. carbon emissions -- but it’s already receiving shade from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi told Politico on Wednesday. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

The ding by Pelosi comes just as Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., are teasing the ambitious deal and set to unveil it at a Thursday afternoon press conference. The measure is currently in a form of a non-binding resolution -- meaning even if it passes it won’t do anything. But it formally outlines the proposal in Congress for the first time and would mark a start on the path toward what Ocasio-Cortez has called “a wartime-level, just economic mobilization plan to get to 100% renewable energy.” Cost estimates for the sprawling proposal range into the trillions.

The resolution, obtained by NPR, says the U.S. “has historically been responsible for a disproportionate amount of greenhouse gas emissions” and calls for the U.S. to take a “leading role in reducing emissions through economic transformation.”

The resolution paints a grim view of present-day America, saying it is “experiencing several related crises” including declining life expectancy, economic stagnation, erosion of worker bargaining power, increasing income inequality and the exacerbation of “systemic racial, regional, social, environmental and economic injustices.”

It goes on to say that “a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal” is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices of minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and “provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States.”

She's going to have to play ball with the leadership at some point. She's a representative, that means she's going to have to get re-elected next year. If she continues on the path she's on, don't be surprised if she doesn't get primaried, I would predict if that happens, she'll be serving drinks again two years from now.

Climate change is the excuse; radically remaking the American economy is the aim.: http://reason.com/blog/2019/02/07/green-new-deal-democratic-socialism-by-o

Quote

Progressive firebrand Naomi Klein once declared that climate change has given the world "the most powerful argument against unfettered capitalism" ever. She added that progressive values and policies are "currently being vindicated, rather than refuted, by the laws of nature."

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.) has taken that message to heart. Today the democratic socialist released the text of a resolution "recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal." It invokes climate concerns to urge Congress to adopt a sweeping plan to totally remake the American economy.

There's a lot to consider in this resolution, but let's for the time being focus on the goal of "meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources" by 2030. The resolution is light on fiscal details, so let's consider the question of how achieving this goal would cost.

 

As it happens, a team of Stanford engineers led by Mark Jacobson outlined just such a plan back in 2015. Jacobson's repowering plan would involve installing 335,000 onshore wind turbines; 154,000 offshore wind turbines; 75 million residential photovoltaic systems; 2.75 million commercial photovoltaic systems; 46,000 utility-scale photovoltaic facilities; 3,600 concentrated solar power facilities with onsite heat storage; and an extensive array of underground thermal storage facilities.

Assuming steep declines in the costs of each form of renewable electric power generation, just running the electrical grid using only renewable power would still cost roughly $7 trillion by 2030. The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation calculated that the total cost of an earlier version of Jacobson's scheme would amount to $13 trillion. And based on how fast it has taken to install energy generation infrastructure in the past, Jacobson's repowering plan would require a sustained installation rate that is more than 14 times the U.S. average over the last 55 years and more than six times the peak rate.

Where is the money to pay for this massive transformation going to come from? The headline over at The Week sums it up pretty well: "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to pay for her Green New Deal by essentially printing more money."

More on the Green New Deal proposal later.

Printing more money.  Yeah, we'll see how well that works out.

The 5 Most Hilarious And Insane Things In Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' Proposal: https://www.dailywire.com/news/43177/walsh-5-most-hilarious-and-insane-things-matt-walsh

Quote

Here are five highlights:

-"Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency."

Yes, every building. There are over 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S. Add that to the approximately 127 million households, which is to say nothing of all the schools and churches and hospitals, and you have a project that would cost trillions of dollars and take decades, at a minimum, to complete. And we're only getting started.

-"Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high- speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle."

If we are building enough high-speed rail to make air travel "unnecessary," we would of course need this mythical railway system primarily built across the ocean. There is about five thousand miles separating California from Japan. This railroad would need to span across that entire stretch of the Pacific, which is 13,000 feet deep on average.

-"A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security" for every American."

 

There are currently about 325 million people in this country, not counting illegal aliens (whom, I assume, AOC would include in this entitlement). Where are these jobs coming from? Who is providing them? What if people don't want to work?

Cortez does actually have an answer to that last question. She stipulates that "economic security" will be provided to all those "unable or unwilling to work." So, jobs will be plucked off the magical job tree and handed out to anyone who wants one. If you don't want one, you'll be sent to the magical economic security tree where a limitless supply of money awaits. Something tells me the economic security tree will be much more popular than the job tree.

-"Plant lots of trees."

That is an actual sentence in the document. It is at least practical, unlike the other items listed. But it is also so vague as to be useless.

-Abolish cows.

 

Actually "farting cows," specifically. Yes, the phrase "farting cows" appears, verbatim, in this allegedly serious proposal written by an United States congresswoman. Here is the full context: "We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast."

The implication is that getting rid of gassy cows is a goal, but it may not be achievable in 10 years. This may be the most reasonable concession Cortez makes. But, longterm, what will happen to the farting cows? Will they be sent off to an island for flatulent bovine? Will they be launched into space? And how will we make up for all of the lost meat and milk that many Americans depend upon to live? Does Cortez have plans to genetically engineer cows who don't pass gas? These specifics are not provided.

And how will she pay for any of this? She provides few particulars, other than to admit that "even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they could make would not be sufficient."

Confiscating all of the wealth in the country is a start, you see. Then we kill all the cows. Then we tear down all the buildings. Then when everyone is broke and homeless and starving, we can figure out where to go from there. A flawless plan, you must agree.

Yep, sounds like a plan.

Does she have any idea how the vast majority of our electricity is generated?

California has been build a high speed rail for how many years? It’s how many years behind schedule and how many billion over budget?

Seems foolproof to me, hence I shall call her Venezuela Ocasio-Cortez.

Lastly is she even attempts to take my beef, it’s gonna bo on like Donkey Kong!

Within 12 hours, VOC goes from stating her Green Dream is a massive government takeover, to telling Chuck Todd that the Republicans are claiming it’s a massive government takeover and it’s not. We need to pass this thing to see what it is.

Where was that that she said government should take care of those unable or unwilling to work (paraphrasing here)?

I’m curious, is VOC drinking urine? I mean as the leader of the revolution, I’m sure she’s leading by example.
