FLASHBACK: AOC Has ‘No Problem’ Admitting Green New Deal Is ‘Massive Gov’t Takeover’

Will anyone in the Bronx or Queens admit they actually voted for her?

Politicians on both sides of the aisle are often caught spouting falsehoods.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is by far and away one of the worst and it’s kind of not even close.

Let’s go back to a time, not long ago, when AOC admitted that her far-left “Green New Deal” was a “massive government takeover.”

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.

AOC: “One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover. 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.

The funny thing is that Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite earlier in the day.

Host Steve Inskeep: “As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?

AOC: “It does. It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.

WATCH:

So, which is it, Alexandria?

For some reason, spending countless trillions on liberal policies until the end of time is no problem whatsoever but $5 billion for the border wall is preposterous.

The Democrat Socialist’s proposed Green New Deal proposal would cost tens of trillions of dollars, and apparently has the support of over 40 Democrats in Congress.

From Daily Caller:

Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades.

[…]

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” calls for creating a House committee to draft legislation to fight global warming and turn the U.S. economy into something akin to what Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders envisions. Indeed, the “Green New Deal” could be a preview of what policies the Democratic Party will back in the 2020 elections.

[…]

Those goals include moving the U.S. to 100 percent green energy, federal job guarantees for workings forced out of their fossil fuel jobs, guaranteed minimum income and universal health care.

The New York representative wants Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “scrapped.”

You know, because America shouldn’t have the right to keep out people who shouldn’t be here, or something.

Liberal logic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday night in a social media post that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency should be “scrapped” altogether.

The Congresswoman knows very little of which she speaks.

Save conservative media!

China’s ‘Oppressive & Inhumane Regime’ Has Been Added to UN Human Rights Council (Details)

Right after they failed to warn the world sooner of COVID-19…

China has no business being on the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. That should go without saying. And yet, we live in crazy times. Here’s the deal, via UN Watch: China was appointed on Wednesday to a United Nations Human Rights Council panel where it will play a key role in picking the world body’s human rights investigators — including global monitors on freedom of speech, health, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detention — in a move that has sparked protest by international human rights activists. “Allowing China’s oppressive and inhumane regime to choose the world investigators on freedom of speech, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights organization based in Geneva that closely monitors the 47-nation UN Human Rights Council, and a leader in speaking out at the UN for victims in China. Neuer added, “It’s absurd and immoral for the UN to allow China’s oppressive government a key role in selecting officials who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide.” https://twitter.com/HillelNeuer/status/1245890358342553603?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245890358342553603&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Funwatch.org%2Fchina-joins-u-n-human-rights-panel-will-help-pick-experts-on-free-speech-health-arbitrary-detention%2F https://twitter.com/UNWatch/status/1245891526892363776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245891526892363776&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Funbelievable-china-joins-united-nations-human-rights-group-despite-unleashing-global-pandemic%2F Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246522120584208384 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246548840980725760 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246578318679343104 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246554736788033536 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246587867603886080 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246432969469726720 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522957398245381 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522958421639168 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246534491402895363 https://twitter.com/IAMTOMMACDONALD/status/1246510492958494720

Ocasio-Cortez: America Is A ‘Brutal, Barbarian Society’ for Most ‘Working-Class Americans’

She cannot be serious…

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should not be seen as a role model for young women. Sure, she obtained a prestigious position at a young age as a member of the lower chamber. But at the end of the day, morals and values are what matter. AOC also has next to zero love for her country, despite her successes. To claim the United States is a “brutal, barbarian society” is bush league at its finest.

Either that, or she’d unintentionally list things she deems unacceptable that actually occurred on Obama’s watch. Behar named Ocasio-Cortez as a potential running mate for 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden. There’s just one major problem. And Joy had no idea.
