Ocasio-Cortez Gets Rude Awakening with Green New Deal Vote

Even the democrats present voted against the massive spending bill.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

While she may be the fresh, new face of the millennial faction of the democratic party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting the cold shoulder in Washington DC.

The 28 year old bartender-turned-Congresswoman has long been the butt of the joke, with social media users consistently lambasting her naiveté and youth.

In one of her fist forays into public policy, AOC and other ultraliberals were focused on the “Green New Deal”; a massive and expensive piece of legislation designed to regulate ourselves out of the alleged threat of climate change.

And while she may be the youthful face of the party, Ocasio-Cortez just learned one of the oldest lessons in the book.

The Senate voted down on Tuesday S.J. Res. 8, the Green New Deal Resolution, 0-57, with all Republicans, three Democrats, and one Independent voting against it.

Forty-three Democrats voted “present” and three Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Doug Jones (D-AL) — voted against the resolution. Sen. Angus King (I-ME) also voted with Republicans against the measure.

The controversial bill came complete with a controversial end as well, having been called to vote by Mitch McConnell abruptly and without prior hearings, as are customary in Congress.

It was this reality that caused the three democrats to vote in protest against the Green New Deal championed by their “boss”.

Al Sharpton’s Failed 2004 Campaign For President Is Still Close To $1M In Debt

Published

on

Rev. Al Sharpton once ran for president — hilarious, right? — back in 2004 and his presidential campaign was a complete and total disaster. How much of a disaster was it? Well, it’s been fifteen years since he ran the campaign and it’s still $900,000 in debt. Of course, Sharpton also hasn’t paid off his massive tax debts in a very long time, so perhaps the notion that this particular race baiting individual doesn’t pay his bills isn’t all that surprising. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post over the weekend. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly.” He added, “Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.” Sharpton is not personally on the hook for the money 15 years later. Instead, it’s his campaign committee and specifically his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, who are responsible. Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant with an extensive work history with campaigns and PACS said, “It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of. Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.” This isn’t the first time Sharpton’s campaign has run into trouble. He also ran into some problems with the Federal Election…

Bloomberg Claim Of Being Able To ‘Teach Anybody To Be A Farmer’ Resurfaces; It’s Slammed As Being ‘Embarrassingly Ignorant’

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor Michael Bloomberg has been getting raked over the coals for the last few weeks as more and more video footage continues to be unearthed of him saying rather unsavory things that seem to be turning off leftist voters everywhere. First, it was video of him saying rather racist things concerning the Stop and Frisk policy in New York City, then comments about women popped up, then statements about allowing elderly people with cancer to die, and now a comment about him being able to teach anyone to be a farmer. This guy was obviously delusional to even consider a run for president with this kind of stuff in his closet. No amount of campaign spending for commercials is going to save him now. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: A clip of Bloomberg lecturing at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in 2016 resurfaced over the weekend and sparked outrage from the Left and the Right on Twitter. In the footage, the former New York City mayor said that people need more “gray matter” to do the technological jobs of the Information Age than those in agrarian or industrial societies. “The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “I could teach anybody … to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes the corn. “Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,” Bloomberg continued. The now-presidential candidate went on to distinguish the “information economy” from all preceding time periods. “The information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with…
