If you needed further proof that the ruling class is seeking to impose its will on you via “climate change” talking points, look no further than Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) spending hundreds of thousands on private jet travel while lecturing Americans about the grave and imminent danger of “climate change.”

“Sen. Bernie Sanders 2018 re-election campaign spent almost $300,000 on private jet service for a recent cross country tour to stump for Democrats and test the presidential waters,” first reported by Vermont website VTDigger. 

Sanders travelled to nine states using Apollo Jets, a private charter jet company out of New York, instead of taking much more environmentally friendly commercial flights.

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” Arianna Jones, senior communications adviser for Friends of Bernie Sanders, told VTDigger.

Sanders publicly scare mongered about the dangers of climate change on Monday.

“Tonight we are dealing with what the scientific community tells us is the great crisis facing our planet and facing humanity,” said in a gathering at the Hart Senate Office building. “That is climate change.”

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) appeared with Sanders at the event to talk about “climate change.”

“This is going to be the Great Society, the moon shot, the civil rights movement of our generation,” she reportedly said said. “That is the scale of the ambition that this movement is going to require.”

Give her a few years in Congress and she’ll be flying private, too.

Meanwhile, ordinary Americans get lectured almost daily by such elitists about the use of plastic bags, plastic straws, plastic water bottles, and, of course, that thing that gets you to and from your job every day, where you pay taxes so Sanders can make a cushy salary.

Sick of the hypocrisy yet?

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
