Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to muddy the waters surrounding her ‘Green New Deal’ Tuesday; suggesting the legislation will focus on asthma, the Flint water crisis, pensions, and Native Americans.
“Climate Equity means:
When we talk water, we discuss Flint
When we talk air, we discuss BX asthma
When we talk coal, we fight for miners’ pensions
When we talk abt just transitions, we honor Native people
When we talk economics, we center working people & families,” posted AOC on social media.

Leading economists threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ climate-change proposal this week; saying it would likely cost $70,000 per household within the first year of implementation.
“The study, released jointly by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and Power the Future on Tuesday, looked at a wide swath of data to estimate how transforming the energy sector — which includes de-carbonizing transportation and retrofitting U.S. commercial and residential buildings — would affect the average household in five representative states,” reports Fox News.
“Within the first year of implementing the program, the average household in each of the given states (Alaska, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania) would incur at least $70,000 in expenses — followed by roughly $45,000 in annual expenses for each of the following 2-5 years and over $37,000 after that time frame,” adds Fox.
Failing Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand unveiled her own version of the ‘Green New Deal’ Thursday; pledging $10 trillion to fight climate change over the next ten years if elected in 2020.
“Polar ice and glaciers are melting at a rapid pace. Heavy rains are causing catastrophic flooding in the Midwest, leaving farms submerged and homes and businesses destroyed. Changes in our oceans are disrupting fisheries and killing coral reefs. Droughts and wildfires are threatening communities across the West, and extreme weather is leaving millions of people without homes and causing billions of dollars in damage every year,” writes Gillibrand.
“The scientific community is telling us that we only have a short amount of time to act if we’re going to prevent the most catastrophic and irreversible damage in the future. But President Trump refuses to even acknowledge that human-caused climate change is happening,” she adds.
“Climate action should be this generation’s moonshot. To save our planet, the energy, talents, and commitment of every American will be required, from our farmers and workers to our scientists and entrepreneurs. The next president has to be willing to take bold leaps to lead this effort and stand up to the climate change deniers, polluters, and oil and gas special interests. I will, because we can’t afford not to,” concludes Gillibrand.
The man plan “mobilize” $10 trillion in funds to achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions; forcing climate “polluters” to pay stiff fines and penalties.

AOC IMPLODES: Ocasio-Cortez Says Republicans Running ‘Torture Project’ Along US-Mexico Border
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Concentration Camp’ comments Thursday; telling reporters the Republican Party is running a “torture project” along the US-Mexico border.

“How do you respond to Republicans who are talking about physical barriers being part of any package that deals with the actual crisis in terms of the traffic coming across?” asked a reporter from the Intercept.
“If they want to do that, that’s fine… but they should not be using a humanitarian crisis as a bargaining chip to make sure they pursue their little torture project,” fired-back Ocasio-Cortez.
Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.
“@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back-away from her outrageous comments regarding American ‘Concentration Camps’ along the US-Mexico border Wednesday; saying the United States has a “shameful history.”
“The US ran concentration camps before, when we rounded up Japanese people during WWII. It is such a shameful history that we largely ignore it. These camps occur throughout history. Many refuse to learn from that shame, but here we are today. We have an obligation to end them,” posted AOC on Twitter.
“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children & families. Congressional appropriations season is now. That means it’s money time – we‘re voting to fund federal government programs. We should not fund the caging of kids & families. Pretty simple,” she added.
