Democrat presidential hopefuls Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Kirsten Gillibrand publicly endorsed U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical ‘Green New Deal’, which would require rebuilding every building in the United States.
Eager to please the new Democrat firebrand, several Democrat Presidential candidates have already endorsed Ocasio-Cortez’s radical ‘Green New Deal’, which she claims would pay for itself. Absent from their endorsement was any mention of the staggering cost of rebuilding or “upgrading” every building in the United States to become compliant with the proposed legislation.

According to the text of the bill, it would require the United States to go through the arduous process of “upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification.”
While Ocasio-Cortez has claimed the bill would pay for itself, there is no mention to the potentially astronomical cost of rebuilding or “upgrading” all existing buildings. In New York City’s Manhattan alone, there are 60,000 individual buildings, and government estimates suggest there are 5.7 million commercial buildings throughout the United States.
The vast majority of these buildings would likely not meet Ocasio-Cortez’s standards.
Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ would also tackle the menace of farting cows in the agricultural sector by “working collaboratively with farmers and ranchers.”
Additionally, it would require discontinuing use of the majority of existing vehicles by requiring “zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and manufacturing,” and necessitate an unknown amount of spending on nationwide public transport, which the bill claims will help with “mitigating and managing the long-term adverse health, economic, and other effects of pollution and climate change.”
It appears Ocasio-Cortez is successfully dragging the Democrat Party further to the left, and away from any semblance of sanity.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
