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.

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!

Capitol Rioter Facing House Arrest After Mountain Lion Hunt

The excursion ran afoul of a “no guns” stipulation set by a judge.

Published

on

While we may be thankfully several months removed from the tumultuous events of the January 6th attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, there is still a great deal of adjudication left to be done on the subject, as these cases are expected to drag out for several more months, or perhaps even years. One of the alleged participants of that event is now in hot water after the court discovered that he had gone on a mountain lion hunt despite being ordered to avoid firearms completely as a condition of his bail. A Colorado hunting guide charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will likely be placed on 24/7 house arrest — instead of remaining free while his case is pending — because he violated the conditions of his release by hunting and killing a mountain lion. Patrick Montgomery, a Littleton hunting guide, shot a mountain lion during a hunt in Douglas County on March 31, even though he was ordered not to possess any guns while the federal charges against him are pending, according to motions filed by prosecutors last week. Montgomery, 48, is accused of kicking a Metropolitan police officer in the chest and wrestling with the officer to try to take the officer’s baton during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., according to court records. He was indicted on 10 charges in April, including assaulting a police officer, engaging in physical violence and illegally entering the Capitol building. Prosecutors pulled no punches in their assessment of Montgomery’s actions. “Montgomery has no respect for the Court’s orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors. “…Montgomery has flagrantly violated the law and has shown by his actions that he…

Boy Scouts Now Forcing Kids to Earn ‘Diversity’ Badge Featuring Anti-White Training

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge.

Published

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge pushing the radical gay/transgender agenda with training that will include anti-white courses to be able to earn Eagle Scout status. The Boy Scouts long ago went full woke, but this new “diversity” badge amps that up to full speed. The BSA added that it will include information about George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor in its indoctrination of boys and girls. In its announcement, the organization insisted that it “has not been as brave as we should have been” to address evil white supremacy. Oh, but to put up at ease, the BSA insisted this isn’t about left-wing politics… even though it is. “The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter,” the organization said in a letter on the BSA’s blog, Scoutingwire. “This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.” For some inexplicable reason, the BSA also reiterated that it stands against Civil War history, too, in order to “ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.” “We will also continue to listen more, learn more and do more to promote a culture in which every person feels that they belong, are respected and are valued in Scouting, in their community and across America,” the scouting organization added. Then there is the Scouts’ gay problem. As CNN noted, “Court testimony released last year shows that over 7,800 former scout leaders are accused of sexually abusing 12,000 scouts over 72 years.” Seriously, America, if you haven’t removed your children from the Boy Scouts already, now is the time. It is…
