posted by Hannity Staff - 8.02.19

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez renewed her calls for the ‘Green New Deal’ on social media Friday; posting video of melting ice in August to promote her “ambitious” government program.

“This is what sea level rise looks like. Those who argue that a #GreenNewDeal is too ambitious don’t see that glacial melt isn’t waiting – in fact, it’s happening at a much faster rate than predicted. We don’t have time to argue. We need to act – on a massive scale,” posted the Congresswoman on social media.

The temperature in Greenland is currently is 22 Celsius, approximately 72 Fahrenheit.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez similarly doubled-down on her vicious rhetoric regarding the American immigration system Friday; saying most Americans are in “denial” over the “concentration camp system” along the US-Mexico border.

“To the folks outraged at the academics + experts naming our concentration camp system what it is, what else do you call camps where parents die as their children watch? Discomfort at the truth should spur us to change it. Denial prioritizes our comfort over people’s lives,” posted AOC on social media.

NOT A DRILL: AOC Discovers Her Own ‘Terrifying’ Garbage Disposal, Says ‘I Don’t Know What It’s For’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows across the country this week; posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

The Congresswoman’s comments come days after she was amazed by her own community garden; saying that “food comes from the dirt” like “magic.”

NOT A DRILL: AOC Publishes the ‘5 Principles’ of Her ‘Green New Deal’ That NO ONE Voted For

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.19

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Green New Deal’ this Memorial Day weekend; publishing the legislation’s “five principles” months after the bill failed to secure a single vote.

“5 Principles in the Green New Deal: 1. Go Big 2. Be Specific 3. Set Deadlines 4. Let Them Sue (aka, “Don’t Flinch”) 5. Make Floors, Not Ceilings,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called AOC’s ‘New Deal’ to a full Senate vote months ago; where it failed to secure a single “Yes” vote despite receiving widespread support from a handful of Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Three Senators -Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, and Independent Angus King- joined Republicans in voting against the measure as all other Democrats voted “present.”

“Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others. McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing. The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change?” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez after the lop-sided vote.

“This should not be a partisan issue,” said the Democratic-Socialist lawmaker. “This is about our constituents and all of their lives.”

Despite the vote disaster, Ocasio-Cortez routinely calls the legislation a “success.”

“The #GreenNewDeal, as much as GOP hiss, scream, storytell & cry about it, has forced even the most entrenched Tea Partiers into publicly abandoning their climate denial stance. The reason they’re so focused on discrediting the GND is because it’s a winning policy,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
