The Mysterious Case Of AOC’s Scrubbed 'Green New Deal' Details

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her "Green New Deal" proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

By the afternoon of Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., removed the document from her website without explanation but following backlash and even ridicule over the radical plans outlined within it, including a call to "eliminate emissions from cows or air travel" — which would functionally ban the latter — and to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” --

The document vanished just hours after Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., formally unveiled a "Green New Deal" resolution that has so far attracted 67 Democratic co-sponsors in the House. It’s a nonbinding measure that is less detailed than the now-deleted FAQ document but calls for a complete and speedy overhaul of the nation’s energy, transportation, and farming sectors in order to eliminate carbon emissions in the coming decades.

The communications staff has so far not responded to an inquiry about the now-missing blog post.

But on Saturday morning, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted that the FAQ page was indeed posted by the Ocasio-Cortez staff but was done so in error. He called the page "an early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn’t represent the GND resolution got published to the website by mistake (idea was to wait for launch, monitor q's, and rewrite that FAQ before publishing)."

Ocasio-Cortez later Saturday admitted the same, tweeting at a Washington Post reporter, "There was also a draft version that got uploaded + taken down. There's also draft versions floating out there."

A policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, though, told Fox News Friday night that the claims were some kind of hoax perpetuated by Republicans.

Robert Hockett, professor of law and finance at Cornell University, appearing on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," called the contents of the now-missing blog post “some kind of document that somebody other than us has been circulating.”

Hockett said Ocasio-Cortez does not endorse the idea of paying people “unwilling to work” and does not want to ban airplane travel.

He said Ocasio-Cortez “tweeted it out to laugh at it.”

He added, “It seems apparently some Republicans have put it out there.”

Hockett may have been referring to the Ocasio-Cortez Friday tweet of a doctored version of the blog post by frequent tweeter and humorist David Burge and others that called for recycling urine to conserve water.

“When your #GreenNewDeal legislation is so strong that the GOP has to resort to circulating false versions, but the real one nets 70 House cosponsors on Day 1 and all Dem presidential candidates sign on anyway,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

"Unwilling to work" just like their hero Karl Marx.

Which is followed by "unwilling to murder so get someone else to do it for you" like Lenin, Stalin, Guevara, and Manson.

Democrats. Lying. Making stuff up. Being dishonest. Telling untruths. Failing to be truthful. Avoiding the truth. Cheating. Saying one thing and doing the opposite. Committing crimes and misdemeanors and blaming innocents for them. Bearing false witness. Lying. Did I say lying? That’s dem democrats.

So AoC's camp has said that the thing never existed and was created by Republicans. Also the thing that never existed was part of a draft that wasn't meant for the website. Also the whole thing was a joke she created.


They can't even pick a story to stick to to explain away their idiocy, and yet the left fawns over her while claiming Trump is the dumb one.

Anyone who has ever watched an emotion filled story take off on the net knows how little credibility there is in lots of people signing on to something.

An early draft meaning that these are their real goals and they had to be hidden because they would otherwise not survive the scrutiny of American's. The lower class couldn't care about air travel. Most of them don't get on planes and travel. They will either drive there themselves or they will take a bus. The rest of us on the other hand use air travel as a convenient means of getting to far off destinations. The DNC on the other hand sees air travel as a means to keep people free and they obviously need to get that entire industry under their control. Too much freedom of movement is a horrible thing for a marxist. People moving freely means they are not in power enough.


The fact that they pulled this crap down shows their true evil intent. Not many planes coming out of Venezuela these days. Nor Cuba, but man there are literally millions a day in the free nations of the world.


For those of you curious there is a great ap and website called flight radar 24:

https://www.flightra...om/2.3,-67.26/5

You can see all the aircraft in the air in the world at any time. Notice Venezuela, airplanes all around it but little to no traffic going into or out of Venezuela. This is what marxism does, no one goes without the gubmint's permission. That's what they want here.

I saw this guy Robert Hockett on Tucker Carlson’s show when I watched the recording yesterday. (He looks just like Eraserhead, BTW.) What an idiot. Carlson is asking him questions about the points in the “manifesto” that Occasional-Cortex put up on her website and this guy keeps saying “Oh no, that isn’t ours, we didn’t say that!” He actually said she put it on her twitter account to laugh at it. He kept saying it was a republican plant, not from the AOC camp at all. Yea, right. Carlson was obviously hearing his producers telling him through his earwig that they had gotten it off her site, but this guy was trying to back step and say it wasn't from the democrats. Sheesh.

Occasionally-Conscious got caught with the rest of her cronies. I believe she will last one term and the Dem's old guard will replace her. She'll have a future job as either a lobbyist or middle class hooker.

Yes, this has always been the pattern of the Left. Just as they've spent decades denying they were Socialists, only to see Bernie Sanders get real traction in the 2016 DNC primary. Now that part of America is accepting of Socialism, Democrats are finally admitting what Republicans and Libertarians have accused them of being all along.

Yes, many Americans claim to be in favor of socialism but it's painfully clear that most of them and that certainly includes the vacuous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have absolutely no idea of what socialism actually entails. Plop her down in Cuba or Venezuela for a few months and let's see what happens as she tries to shoot off her cavernous mouth for a "living wage" and a "green new deal". :P
