Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is aggressively pushing in Congress what she calls her “Green New Deal.” I didn’t like FDR’s policies to begin with and her reboot is even worse. It’s absolute socialism on wheels… actually it’s green communism. This woman has made a lot of ill-informed, nutty claims but this one is a doozy. She says in a dozen years the world will end because of climate change if left unchecked.
“I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is–your biggest issue is ‘how are we going to pay for it?’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war–this is our World War II.”

At a Martin Luther King, Jr., Day MLKNOW event, Ocasio-Cortez did a sitdown with Ta-Nehisi Coutes, a leftist writer, at Riverside Church in Harlem in New York City. The left is cheering her for her stand on the “Green New Deal.” It sounds a lot like former vice president Al Gore is pulling the strings here. His rhetoric in 1992 sounded a lot like this. Back then, Gore claimed there was a “crisis” with regard to the climate and he has never stopped since.
Just today I saw fake stories on the Arctic ice reaching its tipping point on melting. Gore, Ocasio-Cortez and the left are still pushing for carbon taxes to pad the bank accounts of the leftist elite over a non-existent emergency. Gore claimed the polar ice caps would melt by 2014. Not so much.

Ocasio-Cortez calling this their World War II is deeply moronic. First off, that war is already taken. Second off, people are not dying from climate change and won’t drop dead any time soon. I don’t see millions dying because of global warming, etc. There is always someone out there saying the world is about to end and it usually serves their own motives.
All I can say is beware socialists and their doomsaying. You might want to hold on to your wallet.
From USA Today:
“Climate change has been a driving issue for the freshman Democrat since arriving on Capitol Hill. Back in November, she joined a group of about 200 climate change protesters outside the office of then-Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., when she arrived for her orientation. Since taking office, she has called for a “Green New Deal.”
“In November, a 1,600-page report from the federal government said the climate is changing faster than at any point in modern history and that the impacts are already being felt. But a dozen years is a short timetable even those who are most concerned about the effects of global warming – such as naturalist Sir David Attenborough, who warned that climate change could lead to a “collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world.”‘

This is all made up drivel and it is fitting that the youngest woman elected to Congress is not only a Democratic Socialist but an empty-headed one. There is absolutely no solid proof the world will end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change. There is, however, more than adequate evidence that the left is using the cause to impose socialist policies and to try and end our freedoms forever.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s comment on Monday was in response to a question about when and why she decides to “clap back” against her social media critics. She said her main priority is to call out what she believes are widely-accepted but incorrect assumptions, including the idea that people must choose between the economy and the environment.
“She said she does not take the criticism personally but sees it as a “deliberate strategy.”
“If you try to attack and discredit the messenger, then perhaps you can discredit the message,” she told Coates.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s latest nonsense should end her political career but it won’t. The left has gone nuts and the inmates are leading the party. They have lurched all the way to the left now and anything goes.
Ocasio-Cortez at #MLKDAY event is Al Gore, circa 1992: "We're like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we going to pay for it? And like, this is the war. This is our World war II." https://t.co/1XP2CpxtHD

Ocasio-Cortez: "The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change."
Yes, she actually said this.

Right @AOC, because 60 million people have been killed, and a genocidal regime has engineered the Holocaust.

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials
It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.
Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.

Whistleblower Didn’t Follow Law: Went To Schiff’s House Intel Panel Before IG
This pretty much explains the Democrat party. When do any of them follow the law? None of them have ever been held accountable for the laws they continue to break.
It is important for the American people to fight back. These politicians believe they are above the law. Time to stop allowing that.
A CIA officer whistleblower failed to follow the law for protecting members of the intelligence community (IC) seeking to report government malfeasance by going to the Democrat head of the House Intelligence Community before the IC inspector general (IG).
On Wednesday, the New York Times (NYT) revealed:
The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistleblower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.
However, the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA) of 1998 explicitly requires an official concerned about wrongdoing within the government to go to the IC inspector general before the congressional panels in charge of oversight of the intelligence community.
In fact, while the URL at the bottom of the document screenshat by @BradMossEsq has apparently been defunct since 2017, here's what it used to say. It quoted the statute saying IC whistleblowers had to go through the ICIG before going to Congress. pic.twitter.com/cqXCIOMoJU
— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) October 2, 2019
Under a section titled, “Summary of Procedures for Reporting Urgent Concerns Pursuant to the ICWPA,” the official Director of National Intelligence (DNI) website states:
The employee may contact the congressional intelligence committees directly as described in clause (i) only if the employee –
a. before making such a contact, furnishes to the DNI, through the IC IG, a statement of the employee’s complaint or information and notice of the employee’s intent to contact the congressional intelligence committees directly; and
b. obtains and follows from the DNI, through the IC IG, direction on how to contact the congressional intelligence committees in accordance with necessary and appropriate security procedures.
The CIA whistleblower in question went to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff’s office days before the intelligence community’s inspector general, the internal investigator, and watchdog.
Investigators from the office of the IC IG are expected to operate independently of political leadership in government.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) knew about the “whistleblower” complaint days before it was officially filed, it was reported on Wednesday.
Schiff – who performed a dramatized version of President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky during last week’s hearing – was aware of the broad contents of the “whistleblower” complaint days before the partisan CIA official formally filed the complaint, the New York Times reported.
After the detailing his accusations to the “the agency’s top lawyer,” the “whistleblower” took his complaint to a House Intelligence Committee aide, who relayed the information to Schiff, who is largely leading the charge on the impeachment inquiry.
Per the New York Times:
Before going to Congress, the C.I.A. officer had a colleague convey his accusations to the agency’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that avenue for airing his allegations was unfolding, the officer then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide, alerting him to the accusation against Mr. Trump. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.
The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and file a whistle-blower complaint. The aide shared some of what the officer conveyed to Mr. Schiff. The aide did not share the whistle-blower’s identity with Mr. Schiff or anyone else, an official said.
As the Times detailed, the “whistleblower” eventually brought the complaint to Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community, as Schiff’s aide suggested. That move “gave the whistle-blower added protections against reprisals and also allowed him to legally report on classified information,” the Times reports:
While House Intelligence Committee members are allowed to receive classified whistle-blower complaints, they are not allowed to make such complaints public, according to a former official. A complaint forwarded to the committee by the inspector general gives it more latitude over what it can publicize.
By the time the whistle-blower filed his complaint, Mr. Schiff and his staff knew at least vaguely what it contained.
The complaint – based entirely on second-hand information – ultimately led to the release of the transcript, detailing the contents of Trump’s July 25 phone call with Zelensky. The transcripts do not show the president engaging in quid pro quo for dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden, as Schiff suggested during his fabricated reenactment at last week’s hearing.
