The mayor of America’s most populous city has a new plan to fight “global warming,” and it involves doing away with the landscape of the city over which he presides.
“We’re going to introduce legislation to ban the glass and steel skyscrapers that have contributed so much to global warming,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “They have no place in our city or our Earth anymore.”
The mayor did not offer much in the way of specifics regarding his plan. Will existing skyscrapers be demolished, or will the city ban new ones from being erected? Many such buildings are apartments and condos. Will the people who live in them be forced to move? Also, what happened to “climate change?” This reporter was under the impression that “global warming” was an outdated term.
According to Spectrum News 1 in New York City, de Blasio’s proposal would prevent developers from “using all glass facades unless they meet strict new energy guidelines,” which he called “the city’s version of the Green new Deal.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) introduced her signature Green New Deal legislation in Congress, which was a disaster. Not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of the proposed legislation last month.
Big League Politics reported:
Not a single U.S. Senator – including the Democrats – voted in favor moving the ball forward freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Tuesday.
The first vote, called by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), would have opened up the floor for debate on a non-binding resolution. For that, the Senate only needs 60 votes. It received none.
“No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster,” according to Fox News. “Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting ‘no.’ Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted no.’”
Forty-two Senate Democrats voted “present.”
McConnell called the vote largely to see where Democrats stood on the measure. None are biting, especially not presidential candidates Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) or Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). The legislation represents a giant swerve to the left, even for the already-radicalized among the party.

Young Black Male Admits to Killing the 2 Mothers of His Children
Davone Unique Anderson, a 25-year-old African American male confessed to killing the two mothers of his children during an interview with police at the Cumberland County Prison in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
He admitted to shooting and killing Sydney Parmelee at a home in Carlisle on July 5 because he suspected her of cheating on him, according to a report from Detectives Christopher Miller and Antanine Klinger.
Additionally, Anderson informed the detectives that he killed Kaylee Lyons, who was six weeks pregnant, at the same home. A firearm was found close to the murder scene at Lyon’s home.
Police came to the conclusion that the pistol used to kill Parmelee was stolen from Boiling Springs.
Miller and Klinger recounted that while in the Cumberland County Prison on July 31, a day following Lyons’ death, “Anderson made an excited utterance to a correction officer that he ‘killed them both’.” In addition, the investigators also said that Anderson told detectives “I killed Sydney” and “I killed Kaylee, too.”
Anderson said he killed Parmelee “due to his belief of infidelity” and shot Lyons because he believes that she would call law enforcement on him, the officers noted. They said Anderson confessed to murdering Parmelee with the stolen firearm from Boiling Spring and of shooting Lyons with her own handgun.
Anderson wasn’t allowed to possess firearms because of a 2017 drug conviction, which is the standard for American gun control law. Anderson received two counts of first-degree murder, one count of murder of an unborn child, on top of counts of illegally possessing firearms, receiving stolen property, and child endangerment.
Tragically, Anderson was not on the same page and committed heinous acts against innocent women.
