AOC Caught Lying About “Government Takeover” aka “Green New Deal”

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) jumped headfirst into her utopian plan to destroy America in the name of climate change, now known as the “Green New Deal,” and she had some tough words for critics on the Right, saying they were trying to “mischaracterize” her impossibly ambitious scheme: “…the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover.” Then on NPR she responded to the question whether or not this requires a massive government takeover: “It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.” It may be time for a Democrat intervention.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about her “Green New Deal” on Thursday, saying that it is not a “massive government takeover” hours after admitting the exact opposite.

During an interview on MSNBC, Ocasio-Cortez criticized the political Right, saying that the Right was trying to “mischaracterize” her plan.

“One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.”

Yet this morning, during a radio interview with NPR, Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite.

AOC’s “Green New Deal” More Laughable

Nuclear energy. Airplanes. Cows. All are on socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) socialist wonderland hit list. The “to-do” wish list is possibly even more absurd and unrealistic. It includes “upgrading all existing buildings in the United States” and guaranteeing economic security for those “unwilling” to work. We kid you not. The vehicle: AOC’s “Green New Deal.” Even more laughable is that AOC has put this pipe dream on a “10-year national mobilization” timetable to achieve. If you want a preview, just look to Venezuela.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) unveiled her much-vaunted “Geen New Deal,” and it’s even worse than you expected. Among other absurd things, it calls for abolishing cows, nuclear energy, and airplanes, “upgrading all existing buildings in the United States,” guaranteeing “high-quality health care” for all Americans, and spreading the Green New Deal to other countries. Oh, and it isn’t even technically a bill.

Ocasio-Cortez leaked a copy of the “Green New Deal” to National Public Radio (NPR), and her slipshod work in progress is a resolution. Rather than making law, the resolution states the “sense of the House of Representatives.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed the proposal Wednesday, saying, “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

The resolution does not lay out specific plans but calls on Congress to “create a Green New Deal,” which will consist of a “10-year national mobilization” yet to be determined.

Georgetown Students Vote to Tax Themselves for Slavery Reparations

More than 180 years ago, Georgetown University sold 272 slaves. Starting in the fall of 2020, the Georgetown student government body wants students to establish a fund for the descendants of these slaves with a $27.20 fee per student each semester of attendance. It passed in a 20-4 vote. Students receiving financial aid will have the option to opt out if the measure takes effect after a campuswide vote in April. This is what we call redistributive justice: those who did not sin paying for the sins of their ancestors.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Students at Georgetown University are considering paying reparations for slaves that Georgetown University sold more than 180 years ago.

Earlier this month, the Georgetown student government authorized a campus-wide student referendum that will ask students to establish a fund for the descendants of these 272 slaves. If the referendum passes, a fee would be collected each semester, starting in the fall of 2020.

The semesterly fee proposed is $27.20 per student “in honor of the 272 people sold by Georgetown,” according to the student government resolution approving the referendum, obtained by the College Fix.

Students receiving financial aid will be able to opt out of the reparations payments, according to student news outlet the Hoya.

House GOP Reintroduces Born-Alive Act

Missouri Republican Representative Ann Wagner reintroduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to protect babies born alive after failed abortions with the same mandatory medical care and legal protection as that of any wanted newborn baby. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has asked for unanimous consent for the bill’s consideration. Republican Whip Steve Scalise (LA) is bringing a resolution that will force a House vote after 30 legislative days if the bill fails to move otherwise. “Innocent life must be defended and protected at every stage, and that includes babies born alive during an abortion,” said Scalise. “We must immediately extend legal protections to these vulnerable newborns and prosecute any doctor who would leave them to die.” The stark contrast between the two major parties on innocent life in the U.S. is now complete.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Missouri Republican Rep. Ann Wagner re-introduced a bill Wednesday that would protect babies born alive after abortion from infanticide.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) asked for unanimous consent for the House to consider the bill.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would ensure any infant born alive following an abortion receives the same medical care and protection the law gives any newborn baby.

Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana – who originally co-sponsored the legislation when it was introduced previously – will bring a resolution that provides for floor consideration of Wagner’s bill. The two Republicans would force a vote in the House after 30 legislative days if no action is taken.

Warren Culturally Appropriated Listed Heritage on State Bar Exam

By now you’ve probably seen Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s claim of American Indian heritage on her application for the State Bar of Texas. “Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.” WashPo further notes that the card “coincided with her first listing as a ‘minority’ by the Association of American Law Schools.” Exactly how this detail remained a secret since 1986 despite her tenure as a Senator suggests an inside job from the DNC. Apparently the powers that be want her out of the picture. But it should be clear Fauxcahontas had already damaged herself beyond repair. This will probably be the nail in her electoral coffin.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed American Indian ancestry in her application for the State Bar of Texas, according to a new report documenting the previously undisclosed example of Warren claiming American Indian ancestry.

The Post notes that this latest revelation is likely to cause problems for Warren because Democrats “want a nominee who can move beyond any problems in their past and present a strong challenge to President Trump.”

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

Senate Dems Block Bill to Protect Babies Surviving Abortion

As if the Democrats’ agenda weren’t already approaching the worship of Moloch, Senate Democrats have blocked legislation to protect babies surviving abortion procedures. Led by Washington Senator Patty Murray, Democrats in the upper chamber blocked the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act (S.130), which would require that babies born alive during abortion receive reasonable medical care and transportation to a hospital. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), who sponsored the bill, asked his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent. It was blocked instead without even getting a vote. “Senate Democrats had the chance today to prove they are not the party of infanticide and instead they doubled down on extremism,” blasted Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser. Democrats: because infanticide is just peachy.

Senate Democrats – led by Washington Sen. Patty Murray – blocked a bill that would require babies born alive during abortion to receive reasonable medical care and transport to a hospital.

Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) to protect babies who have survived failed abortions. Sasse went to the floor of the Senate Monday to ask his colleagues to pass the bill by unanimous consent, but Democrats objected.

Referencing the recent firestorm created by the Virginia bill known as the Repeal Act, introduced by Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran and supported by Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam, Sasse said:

This place fancies itself the world’s greatest deliberative body, but we would be deceiving ourselves if we ignored the biggest debate that’s been happening in America over the last 36 hours.

Kamala Harris: 20-Week Abortion Ban “Immoral”

California Senator Kamala Harris (D) is adding to her far Left 2020 presidential campaign platform. The former prosecutor now wants healthcare for all… so long as it’s before 20 weeks gestation. In the wake of the third trimester abortion “reproductive justice” wave sweeping the nation, Harris contends that banning abortions at five months into a pregnancy is “immoral.” Harris tweeted: “The GOP has scheduled a vote on a 20-week abortion ban on Monday. Add your name to demand Congress votes down this immoral bill.” Memo to Harris: Does not a 20-week beating heart also deserve healthcare?

Here’s more from The Blaze…

Harris’ vision for the country is “frightening” to anyone who is not a socialist. Harris wants to implement her vision of socialized / single payer health care, she wants government funded abortions, she would abolish ICE, and her plan would offer free college to everyone.

In a tweet, Harris called a ban on abortion after 20 weeks “immoral.”

Cory “Spartacus” Booker Launches 2020 Bid

New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker threw his hat into the already crowded ring on Friday to challenge President Trump for the White House in 2020. Booker, who gained special notoriety for his “Spartacus” self-comparison during his defamation of now confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is calling for Americans to unite behind him. In an obvious jab at President Trump, Booker argued that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.” So many words with so little meaning. Thanks, Sparky.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Calling for a sense of common purpose, Sen. Cory Booker on Friday morning declared his candidacy for president.

The high-profile Democrat from New Jersey announced his White House run with a new website and a tweet featuring a two-minute-long campaign launch video, as well as an email to supporters.

“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood,” Booker said in the video.

The former mayor of Newark, known for his oratory skills, added that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.”

Sasse Challenges Senate on Infanticide Support

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) drew a big, fat red line on the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday when he asked all 99 of his fellow senators to stand on the floor and state whether they are for or against infanticide. Sasse gave them heads up, saying: “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 Senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.” Sasse is also taking concrete legislative steps to address the recent flurry of third-term and post-birth abortion legislation across America. He’s using Rule 14 to expedite consideration of his bill “the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Sasse is boldly calling for a vote to pass the bill with unanimous consent as soon as next week. This should smoke out some Democrats on the issue, particularly those running for president. Stay tuned…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, speaking on the Senate floor, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NB) threw down the gauntlet to his 99 fellow senators, informing them, “On Monday, I’m going to ask all 100 senators to come to the floor and be against infanticide. This shouldn’t be complicated.”

As Alexandra DeSanctis reports at National Review, Sasse “announced that he is starting a dual-track process for the Senate to consider his legislation, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, in light of Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s recent comments about late-term abortion legislation in his state. Sasse is using the Rule 14 process to expedite consideration of the bill, as well as calling for a vote to pass the bill under unanimous consent on the Senate floor next week.”

Sasse quoted the incendiary comments made this week by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who intimated that even if a baby is born alive, a mother in his state could still opt to let the baby die. Sasse pointed out that Northam, despite huge outrage precipitated by his remarks, doubled down on Thursday.

Post-Birth Abortion Backlash Slams VA Governor Northam

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) is facing national fury after his comments supporting not only third-trimester abortions but POST-birth abortion went viral. Northam’s office is now pushing back on critics, claiming his comments supporting letting a newborn die in the name of “reproductive justice” were taken out of context. The key phrase of his interview was that abortions would be done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.” Northam’s communications director has since retaliated, arguing that critics are “trying to play politics with women’s health.” Memo to Northam: words mean things. You should resign, sir.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam came under fire Wednesday after he waded into the fight over a controversial abortion bill that one sponsor said could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth — with critics saying Northam indicated a child could be killed after birth.

Northam, whose office is now pushing back on those claims, appeared on WTOP to discuss The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, one of the sponsors, sparked outrage from conservatives when she was asked at a hearing if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion. The bill was tabled in committee this week.

“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.

Northam, a former pediatric neurologist, was asked about those comments and said he couldn’t speak for Tran, but said that third-trimester abortions are done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.”
