AOC and John Kerry Will Lead Biden Climate Change Panel
Camp Biden is courting the party’s liberal wing
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, but now she’s working with former VP Biden’s presidential campaign.
Ocasio-Cortez will join former Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry to co-chair the Biden campaign’s climate policy group.
U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a climate change panel for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, giving him a prominent liberal voice that could help garner his party’s full support.
Ocasio-Cortez, who had backed fellow liberal U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ bid for the Democratic nomination, will co-head the climate policy group Biden had set up in collaboration with his one-time rival Sanders, his campaign confirmed on Wednesday.
The panel’s other co-chair will be former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, a Biden ally who helped architect the Paris climate accord when he was President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.
…Ocasio-Cortez has said she expects to ultimately support Biden’s candidacy but wanted to see him refine his stances on several issues.
“She believes the movement will only be successful if we continue to apply pressure both inside and outside the system,” a spokeswoman for Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement late on Tuesday.
Varshini Prakash, a co-founder of the youth-led climate activist group Sunrise Movement, will also serve on the task force.
Biden has been courting liberals who were initially hostile to his candidacy to shore up support ahead of the Nov. 3 election against President Donald Trump, who has questioned the scientific consensus that global warming is dangerous and driven by fossil fuel consumption. Trump has vowed to exit the Paris agreement and wants to increase oil, gas and coal production.
Was only a matter of time before Biden looped AOC and the left-wing into the campaign.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
What about Greta Thunberg? A panel this important demands at least 3 stooges.
He probably would put her on if she were only a US citizen. It wouldn’t look right for a foreigner to be a campaign advisor, especially after the Dems spent three years screaming about foreign interference in US elections.
Do they really care what ‘looks right’?
Just call her an undocumented immigrant and Joe’s people would get a two-fer. She can advise on climate and immigration.
Greta can be in charge of energy policy
Perfect, just what the country needs right now, more green deal BS that costs billions or even trillions. Keep digging that hole democrats…
Hey, that money is going to flow to their friends and family, just like in the Solyndra scandal. The “investors” will set up companies, and then get repaid, even if it means taking the companies through bankruptcy in a year.
The brains of the operation.
All they need is crazy little gretchen, or whatever his name is.
How dare you
What’s funny about gretchen is that she’s a school dropout!
The dumb leading the dumber.
But then again, we allowed a situation to exist in our culture where absolute morons like cortez hold the highest office in our land.
How can you say that about those who stole their way to the top?
She wasn’t learning anything in school anyway, so she’s probably better off dropping out. Where do you think she learned all the nonsense she’s spouting?
you mean “Scoldilocks”?
You can’t make this crap up
If AOC wins re-election after losing her county 6 figure jobs by the thousands, Well identity politics. Latinos don’t vote as much lock step as blacks but they do vote almost as much for color.
It’s narcissism. Narcissistic people can NEVER admit they’re wrong. They’d rather see the world destroyed.
How does she manage to look like an idiot in every picture?
she can’t hide what she is.
Like my Grandad would tell my Grandma when she would say she didn’t want her picture taken because they always made her look fat
“Well, that’s what you look like”
i hope the fill out the paperw*rk for the election people, documenting their “in kind” donation to Trump’s re-election campaign…
“they”, not “the”…
Careful, AOC is cootagious
Meanwhile, the NY Post just put up an article about how NY Dem elected politicians overall aren’t overly fond of her:
That liberal wing of which you speak is almost the whole Dem party. AOC is mainstream Dem. The difference between her and others is she says out loud what they all think. They won’t go on record for fear of losing votes. She doesn’t care and thinks her seat is safe.
AOC and Kerry, two of the three stooges. Apparently St. Gretta was not available.
If only there were some public fund billionaires could pay into along with everyone else that helps fund our infrastructure, hospitals, and public systems all at once.
It could even be a modest % of what they earn every year. We could have an agency collect it and everything https://t.co/g0vI45xnYG

Man this is so dumb and dishonest. You could confiscate every penny held by every billionaire and multimillionaire in America and it wouldn’t cover a fraction of your Green New Deal fantasy. https://t.co/6D71GbhQfB

Hey there! Totally get it if you’ve never bothered to read the legislation you’re commenting so authoritatively on.
The Green New Deal is a non-binding resolution of values. It does not have a price tag or CBO score and costs us $0 if passed.

So it’s pointless?

So…then you don’t need to strip the evil billionaires of their wealth?

If it costs nothing, why do billionaires have to fork over their money?

In what world does fulfilling your list of demands cost $0

I personally cannot wait to see what happens when Joe sniffs AOC’s hair. How much do you want to bet that the handlers appoint someone to maintain a defensive perimeter? In his present state, it’ll take the Green Bay Packers.
the jar jar binks of the democratic party
AOC is an obvious sop to the Bernistas, and it looks like they’re relying on Kerry, a sop to the party faithful, to smother her ridiculous noise under his usual blanket of humdrum and ennui.
Those Dems sure do know how to throw a wild party.
So the lech is looking to take Lurch and Loon into his campaign. Dementia Joe sure is a mental paragon to come up with this winning combo.
With these appointments Uncle Joe further demonstrates his absence of mental capacity to be President.
What, no Al Gore?
Did they tell her that she will be expected to answer questions about paying for it and questions about economic impact?
Cortez and Kerry in the same brain trust.
