AOC Brags She Helped Design Biden’s Job-Killing Energy Agenda

AOC Brags She Helped Design Biden’s Job-Killing Energy Agenda

Does one really feel joy when they find out they helped put people out of work?

https://youtu.be/AoESX5CpAtM

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) bragged about designing President Joe Biden’s job-killing energy agenda after an NBC News reporter pointed out the similarities between it and her Green New Deal.

We can debate numbers another time. We all know that killing the Keystone XL Pipeline costs jobs.

But we all knew this would happen.

Fuzzy wrote about it in September: Biden’s Build Back Better’ is Essentially the Green New Deal.

Fuzzy quoted from Biden’s website:

Mobilize American manufacturing and innovation . . . . he is releasing a plan today to build a strong industrial base and small-business-led supply chains to retain and create millions of good-paying union jobs in manufacturing and technology across the country.

Mobilize American ingenuity to build a modern infrastructure and an equitable, clean energy future. Biden will soon release updated proposals to meet the climate crisis, build a clean energy economy, address environmental injustice, and create millions of good-paying union jobs.

Mobilize American talent and heart to build a 21st century caregiving and education workforce . . . . Joe Biden will soon announce a plan to make it far easier to afford child care and to ensure aging relatives and people with disabilities have better access to home and community-based care; to elevate the pay, benefits, and professional opportunities for caregivers and educators; to create millions of good-paying new jobs in these areas with a choice to join a union; and to free up millions of people to join the labor force and grow a stronger economy in return.

Mobilize across the board to advance racial equity in America . . . . As President, he will pursue a dedicated agenda to close the racial wealth gap, to expand affordable housing, to invest in Black, Latino, and Native American entrepreneurs and communities, to advance policing and criminal justice reform, and to make real the promise of educational opportunity regardless of race or zip code.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) listed key points of the Green New Deal on his website, which included:

  • Transform our energy system to 100 percent renewable energy and create 20 million jobs needed to solve the climate crisis.
  • Ensure justice for frontline communities, especially under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly.
  • Commit to reducing emissions throughout the world, including providing $200 billion to the Green Climate Fund, rejoining the Paris Agreement, and reasserting the United States’ leadership in the global fight against climate change.
  • Huh. Sounds pretty similar. Biden’s just not as blunt as Sanders. He is blunt, but not *as* blunt.

    Still waiting on a woketopian to tell me what energy sour we can transition to immediately that has the same punch as oil.

      There isn’t one.

      Well, you could try hydrogen, but I don’t think anyone would buy a car branded Hindenberg.

        henrybowman in reply to Ironclaw. | January 27, 2021 at 11:35 pm

        Hydrogen isn’t an “energy source,” any more than is a big box of Duracells.
        Energy sources are mined, or similarly acquired.
        Source implies acquisition today of an energetic substance you didn’t have yesterday, at a cost much less than the value of the energy.
        If we could mine the sun’s photosphere, or the Jovian atmosphere, hydrogen might become an economical “energy source.” Until then, it’s nothing but an overly complicated rechargeable battery.

          You realise that plenty of power generation globally is already derived from renewables right? Solar, wind, geothermal and hydro all provide substantial power contributions. Sure it’s not enough but the tech is improving all the time and it’s percentage contribution is increasing all the time. In fact from a free market economics perspective coal (in particular) and oil are yesterday’s industries and as such are declining .

    It didn’t bother her when she had a hand in killing the Amazon deal.

      MattMusson in reply to MAB. | January 28, 2021 at 7:49 am

      They are NOT killing jobs. They are Exchanging them.

      100K US Oil Field Jobs are exchanged for 100K US Army jobs in Syria.

      And, they are guaranteeing huge profits for Oil companies to boot.

    I look at her and I see a Useful Idiot.

      With these people the question always comes to mind as to whether they are so stupid that they believe the fairy tales that back their policies, or they are simply seeking total power and will use whatever lies they can to frighten the public into giving them opportunity to seize it.

      In reality, it makes no difference — the same disastrous results will occur regardless of the motivation. While the people behind the curtain orchestrating it all are certainly in the second group, the great majority are useful idiots who’ve swallowed the propaganda whole, and believe they’re saving the world. You’re probably right, but one can never be sure.

    This woman is a walking three-ring circus of Stupid with a brain the size of a pea operating a mouth as big as a Jackfruit! She is Black Hole Stupid. That’s Stupid so dense no intellect can possibly escape, not to mention being nuttier than squirrel poop and more confused than a mood ring on a paranoid, bi-polar, schizophrenic chameleon trapped in a bag of Skittles!

    She lives in a fantasy world that a lot of people in big cities live in. Turn on the tap the water comes out. Turn on the switch, the lights come on. No thought is give them towel any of this works, or who provides it.

      Victor Davis Hanson had a similar discussion with prpfessor at Stanford. The prof couldn’t understand why the issue of water resources in California was so controversial. He pointed out to a reservor near the campus and noted it had plenty of water.

      These politicians have no idea that a job is nota job. We have seen Biden and all kill not jobs but the vocation and years of training and experience obtained to be a craftsman. It takes thousands of hours to acquire the training and experience to perform many of these jobs that are invisible to those city dwellers. Where is the “equity” of that?

      She’s so Green. I wonder if anyone has actually ever taken her camping?

    This attention-seeking, pathological narcissist, infantile demagogue-twit is so utterly contemptible.

    Another utterly useless, self-aggrandizing Dhimmi-crat in love with the sound of her own voice.

    This vile twit transparently lacked the talent, merit, intelligence and ambition to succeed in the private sector, so, naturally, she gets into government as a Dhimmi-crat, achieving the wealth and fame that would never be hers, otherwise.

    I hate this miserable, self-serving narcissist. Dumber than a box of rocks, and nowhere near as useful.

    Remember when AOC’s former COS let the cat out of the bag:
    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts.
    “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” Chakrabarti added.

    Would be nice if enough people in American gave a damn.

    Gozer the Gozerian: Choose. Choose the form of the Destructor.

    Peter Venkman: Oh, I get it! I get it. Oh! Very cute. [to the others] “Whatever we think of.” If we think of J. Edgar Hoover, J. Edgar Hoover will appear and destroy us, okay? So empty your heads. Empty your heads. Don’t think of anything. We’ve only got one shot at this.

    Gozer the Gozerian: The choice is made.
    Gozer the Gozerian: The Traveler has come.

    Peter Venkman: Nobody “choosed” anything! [turns to Egon] Did you choose anything?

    Egon Spengler: No.

    Peter Venkman: [to Winston] Did you?

    Winston Zeddemore: My mind is totally blank.

    Peter Venkman: I didn’t choose anything! [All three slowly turn to confront the NYC voters]

    NYC Voters: I couldn’t help it. It just popped in there.
    NYC Voters: I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my neighborhood, something that could never, ever possibly destroy us: The cute empty headed waitress from the bar.

    Peter Venkman: Nice thinkin’, NYC Voters.

      Kudos for the Ghostbusters reference. But you left out some very apropos parts!

      Venkman: What?? What ‘just popped in there?’

      […]

      Venkman: NYC Voters have gone ‘bye bye’ Egon. What’ve you got left?
      Egon: Sorry Venkman. I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

    “AOC brags…”

    This is typical of the democrat mind: she is proud of what she ought to be ashamed of.

    The new “green” deal is designed for one thing: to take green out of our pockets and put it in the fascist swamp’s.

    Sure, the young fascists like Cortez have no money, so they’re all in for the dough. But the old criminals like John Kerry, pelosi, biden: it’s all about ego, sadism and masochism. Kerry, pelosi and biden (and the ‘Ho) are sadistic towards us, but they are masochisitc beneath their ChiComm masters.

    The ChiCommos aren’t a nation of neurotics: they’re just ambitious, led by a few megalomaniacs.

    But make no mistake: you can gauge and predict the left by their sado-masochism. Just think about that idiot fauci and his new suffocating’multi-mask’ dictate and the new ‘anal swab’ covid test being pushed by the left: this just doesn’t nore sexually weird.

    If the countless images of Grechen Whitmer so joyously reveling in oppressing the people of Michigan (she never stopped smiling) isn’t instructive, think about the fun Cuomo has had in not only oppressing people in NY, but actually slaughtering tens of thousands of them by jamming them into nursing homes for no other reason than to let them die by the warehouse-ful.

    And if you want the ultimate demonstration of sado-masochism, just look at the weirdos in hollywood so viciously calling for our deaths and America to subjegate itself to fascism: they get their rocks off by being sadistic to us, but then bend over to their Chi-Comm masters by way of democrat ‘leaders’. Nothing else explains the fashionable fawning to biden – a moron they’ve otherwise despised until a few weeks ago.

    More fuel to the fire of ongoing ‘buyers remorse’ from Biden voters. Joe Biden, though President, is an empty vessel. Others use him to fulfill their own agenda items.

    Some of us tried telling folks the truth but were ignored because these folks had been fed a non-stop propaganda diet from the MSM that ‘orange man bad’.

    Policy accomplishments, massive change to the Judiciary including three mostly solid SCOTUS seats filled all that didn’t count. Only personality and media framing. So they voted for Biden.

    The buyers remorse didn’t take long, Joe Biden hasn’t been in office two weeks. Hopefully some percentage of these folks will come to their senses before the next elections.

      Ghost Rider in reply to CommoChief. | January 27, 2021 at 6:59 pm

      And yet the morons in the MSM still sing his praises and the sheeple baa baa along with them. This is still the Trump economy and will be until about six months from now when the Biden stupidity kicks in full force and things take a downturn. AOC is such a brilliant economist and scientist….. she makes Fauci look like a genius as the other scientist and Nobel Prize winners laugh at his lack of knowledge.

      henrybowman in reply to CommoChief. | January 27, 2021 at 11:42 pm

      “Hopefully some percentage of these folks will come to their senses before the next elections.”

      Yeh, right. It’s four years before the next elections (or two, depending on who you’re electing). How many voters remember the violent riots and arson that the Democrats staged four years ago when Trump was inaugurated?

      Hell, a third of them have probably already forgotten CHAZ.

    Joe “The Human Wrecking Ball” Biden just had the worst first week in office in Presidential history, and I’m sure he is very proud of all the damage he did in the name of “progress.” To hell with freedom, only the “progress” of the socialist/communist and victimhood agendas count. If he is talking advice from AOC, then he is an even bigger fool than I thought. The problem is that it is we the taxpayer who are going to get effed good and hard by this moron.

    She is Black Hole Stupid.

    Well, if you lost your good job with good benefits, you now know who to blame.

    Forgotten the proposed Amazon plant so soon?
