Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four…sounding like LeBron James over here when he signed with the Miami Heat.

13.

That’s how much money Americans would be paying PER GALLON if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” became a reality.

Too bad the media won’t inform the uninformed.

From Washington Examiner:

The socialistic Green New Deal, pushed by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and winning broad support from Democratic presidential candidates could lead to a $10 increase on a single gallon of gas, according to a new study of the so-called “carbon tax” and the liberal bid to rid vehicles that burn fossil fuels.

The CO2 Coalition’s study, mostly focused on the government’s effort to assign an environmental price on the future “Social Cost of Carbon,” also looked at the ultimate goal of liberals to rid gas-powered autos, key to the Green New Deal.

[…]

The result: A $10 per gallon gas tax and final price of some $13, or about the cost of shifting to EVs, about $2,700. “That is the economic breaking point of driving gas-powered cars,” he said.

Ocasio Cortez…(pause to take a breath from laughing)…thought she was attacking the GOP.

Instead, she proved how ignorant she truly is by not knowing that Rep. John Yarmouth is a Democrat.

If this isn’t an instant classic than nothing is!

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat.

The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!”

AOC’s response:

YIKES!

Right before the screw up, AOC was doing what she does best: blasting Republicans on Twitter.

LOOK:

To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system:

Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?”

Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?”

Bc that question reflects WAY more people.

Reminder:
– Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration

– Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes.

– Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth

Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.”

Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in the world – even more than China.

Our system is built to disenfranchise people of color ⬇️

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Save conservative media!

Here’s a bit of news you 100% did not expect to read on a Sunday morning, especially considering the state of American politics these days. But it happened. It actually happened. A New Jersey Democrat is becoming a Republican. After decades of living on planet earth, Rep. Jeff Van Drew finally decided it was time to grow up and become an adult. Good for him and better for America! How must Nancy Pelosi feel, at this moment? She just lost yet another vote when it comes to impeaching President Trump. Do you feel bad for her? Don’t answer that. We already know the answer. Check this out, via Daily Wire: New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew, who has strongly opposed the Democrats’ impeachment efforts, is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a member of the Republican Party after meeting with President Donald Trump. […] Van Drew reportedly met “at length” with Trump on Friday and his decision to switch parties is supposed to be officially announced in the near future, a top GOP source told Politico. https://twitter.com/MZanona/status/1205946597974118400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1205949015734575104?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss Reactions: The stunning move comes ahead of a historic vote on impeachment, to which Van Drew is strongly opposed.

Watch: Democrat Rep. Admits Impeachment Vote Delayed to Maximize TV Exposure

How much attention do they need, at this point?

John Salvatore

Published

on

If the mainstream media was honest with the American people, this would be a story they’d report above all else, at the moment. Not only do Democrats want President Trump out of office because they hate him – not because he broke any laws – but they want as much TV time as possible to let the politically uninformed know they are attempting to kick POTUS out, therefore making it seem as if they are doing a good job. Here’s what’s up, via The Blaze: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) enraged Republicans on the committee by suddenly delaying a vote on impeachment articles that was supposed to occur Thursday night, and one Democrat on the committee has admitted the move was for attention. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) told CNN on Friday that instead of having the vote late Thursday night when no one was paying attention, the committee wanted to maximize the number of potential viewers by pushing it until Friday morning. The Thursday night hearing lasted nearly until midnight. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX2gUexYgEE&feature=emb_logo California Democrat Nancy Pelosi knows she’s got jack. All Democrats know they have nothing against President Trump. Unfortunately, that won’t stop them from acting like children and attempting to impeach. The Speaker’s response to liberal CNN host Jake Tapper’s questions about the process shows she’s vapid on the issue. And considering the issue at hand, that’s kind of a big deal. The fact that Dems have taken the impeachment process as far as they have without any proof of presidential wrongdoing whatsoever speaks volumes about character. But they don’t care. WATCH: You can’t make this up. Nancy Pelosi scolds CNN’s @JakeTapper for asking about impeachment on the day she asks for articles of impeachment to be drafted against @realDonaldTrump. #StopTheMadness https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1202784451559862272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202784451559862272&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fpelosi-scolds-cnn-for-asking-her-about-impeachment-on-day-she-declared-impeachment If there is one person…
