Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that any plan to sufficiently address the climate crisis will need to cost at least $10 trillion.

AOC said, “I think we really need to get to $10 trillion to have a shot.”

She added, “I know it’s a ton. I don’t think anyone wants to spend that amount of money, it’s not a fun number to say, I’m not excited to say we need to spend $10 trillion on climate, but … it’s just the fact of the scenario.

When it rains, it’s climate change.

When it snows, it’s global warming.

When it’s too hot out, it’s a climate crisis.

Democrats are too funny. You know, if they want to be known as the party of science they might need bigshots like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to know what she’s talking about.

AOC posted a video to Instagram likening a tornado warning to “climate change.” She was quickly rebuffed by a meteorologist.

From Fox News:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to social media on Thursday during a tornado warning in Washington, D.C., and swiftly tried to connect it to climate change — prompting one meteorologist to call her out for not knowing “the difference between weather and climate.”

The freshman congresswoman began by sharing a video on Instagram briefly showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway.

AOC noted, “There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out. This is crazy.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in the capital region.

Maue tweeted:

The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate.

Let’s try an easy analogy:

Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door.

Climate is your closet wardrobe.

AOC now needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.

Published

on

Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1173432452435644416 The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.

Published

on

One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
