The Green New Deal has been hailed by Democrats and liberal pundits as one of the most important proposals to tackle global warming in decades, but don’t be fooled: Many supporters of the Green New Deal know it will do absolutely nothing to reduce global temperature or prevent future temperature rise—the primary purpose of the proposal, according to Ocasio-Cortez. The real goal of the Green New Deal is to impose a series of radical, socialistic programs—policies that would dramatically increase the size and power of the federal government, cause immense harm to the U.S. economy, and run up the national debt by trillions of dollars.
“The one thing the president has not talked about is the fact he has systematically engaged in the violation of human rights on our border,” Ocasio-Cortez said on MSNBC Tuesday night after Trump’s primetime address on border security.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the “Democratic Socialists” attempt to distance themselves from the catastrophic socialism of the 20th century that millions died under by emphasizing that their version of socialism is “democratic” and, therefore, completely different and somehow better.
The enormously powerful bloc of Progressives in the House is comprised almost entirely of hardcore leftists with extreme views. This group is pushing the rest of the Democrats in Congress towards an all mighty “Green New Deal” committee or else.

Speaking at a “My Muslim Vote” rally in Dearborn, Michigan, Ocasio-Cortez asked activists to send Michigan Congressional candidates like Rashida Tlaib and Fayrouz Saad with her to Congress and declared, “2018 isn’t the year that we get our first Muslim woman to Congress… it’s that we get our first class of Muslim women.”
“People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP. It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent. That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy.”
Few countries have been moving toward a cashless society as fast as Sweden. But cash is being squeezed out so quickly — with half the nation’s retailers predicting they will stop accepting bills before 2025 — that the government is recalculating the societal costs of a cash-free future.
Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that “the wealthy few” enjoy what, “in justice, belongs to all” and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants.
The comments are quite entertaining.
Fresh off a successful campaign to to name and shame Amazon for its low wages, Bernie Sanders is setting his sights on Walmart. Today, the Vermont senator is introducing the “STOP Walmart Act,” a bill that demands the retail behemoth raise its wages or face penalties.
Across Venezuela, as the once-wealthy oil nation’s economy collapses and sky-high inflation leaves residents struggling to afford scarce food, crimes of hunger and desperation are soaring.
