Ocasio Cortez’s New Green Deal: Tales From The Twilight Zone


Once again the outspoken and ludicrous, arrogant, immature, Ocasio Cortez spouts off with her mouth on her Green New Deal which is so outlandish that it sounds like someone on drugs in their wildest imaginations yet her fellow Dems go right along with her like she’s some messiah spouting futuristic truths that can be worked out with a snap of a finger and she wants it all done in 10 years. When asked once how would you pay for it she responded, “Just pay for it like everything else”. She also suggested taxing the rich up to 70-90% without thinking about the consequences that would cause.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who announced a sweeping “Green New Deal” on Thursday that promises to render air travel obsolete, get rid of flatulent cows and ensure economic security for everyone in less than a decade.

The Green New Deal which Ocasio-Cortez put forth included a series of outrageous claims. The most astounding ones of all cited providing economic aid to individuals who are “unwilling to work,” reconstructing all buildings in the United States, and doing away with air travel. Additionally, the release referenced “farting cows” and took a considerable stance against nuclear power. Suffice it to say, the Green New Deal release was a complete and utter mess. At some point, the staff who works for Ocasio-Cortez realized this and removed the release from her webpage. Ocasio-Cortez is infamous for her gaffes and silly statements which loudly evidence her inexperience and lack of qualifications to serve in Congress.

This imbecile wants to get rid of farting cows as part of her green deal and every person has a job with security, medical leave and vacations among other very juvenile ideas like doing away with gas cars and everyone has an electric car with charging stations everywhere.

As writer and commentator Rich Lowery said in his excellent article in the New York Post. “The Green New Deal calls for a top-down revolution in the ­operation of American society so sweeping that it would be disturbing if it weren’t so wholly ridiculous. It shows all the thoughtfulness of a college sophomore pulling an all-nighter to write a term paper for his Millennial Socialism 101 class.”

Here are five highlights as composed by writer and author Matt Walsh:

1)”Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

Yes, every building. There are over 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S. Add that to the approximately 127 million households, which is to say nothing of all the schools and churches and hospitals, and you have a project that would cost trillions of dollars and take decades, at a minimum, to complete. And we’re only getting started.

2)”Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high- speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”

If we are building enough high-speed rail to make air travel “unnecessary,” we would, of course, need this mythical railway system primarily built across the ocean. There is about five thousand miles separating California from Japan. This railroad would need to span across that entire stretch of the Pacific, which is 13,000 feet deep on average.

3) A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security for every American.”

There are currently about 325 million people in this country, not counting illegal aliens (whom, I assume, AOC would include in this entitlement). Where are these jobs coming from? Who is providing them? What if people don’t want to work?

Cortez does actually have an answer to that last question. She stipulates that “economic security” will be provided to all those “unable or unwilling to work.” So, jobs will be plucked off the magical job tree and handed out to anyone who wants one. If you don’t want one, you’ll be sent to the magical economic security tree where a limitless supply of money awaits. Something tells me the economic security tree will be much more popular than the job tree.

4)Plant lots of trees.”

That is an actual sentence in the document. It is at least practical, unlike the other items listed. But it is also so vague as to be useless.

5) Abolish cows.

Actually “farting cows,” specifically. Yes, the phrase “farting cows” appears, verbatim, in this allegedly serious proposal written by a United States congresswoman. Here is the full context: “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”


Pressed on the plausibility of the Green New Deal by Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes,” Ocasio-Cortez said we must pursue change we don’t conceive as possible.” The Green New Deal certainly meets that standard. It’s the perfect program for a movement that has no idea of how to make means meet ends and doesn’t even care to try.

The architects of the Green New Deal apparently believe once you have lost touch with reality with one proposal you might as well pile on as many wild-eyed schemes as possible.
