Good news out of the non-scientific community Monday morning, as a former bartender turned Congresswoman turned prolific Tweeter reassured the American people that she was not being serious when she (very seriously) said we only have 12 years to live.
“This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it. Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said.

But the freshman Congresswoman made that exact claim at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, where she was interviewed by Ta-Nahesi Coates.
“The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” she said at the event.
It wasn’t just the GOP who took Ocasio-Cortez’s scare mongering seriously.
Several children being used as political pawns by their liberal parents stormed the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to demand action on climate change, and that the elderly Senator vote in favor of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.
“Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around,” one little gild told the Senator in the following video:

Failed U.S. Senate candidate and 2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke repeated the claim on the campaign trail in March.
“The scientists are unanimous on this,” he said. “We have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.”
The Washington Post ran a headline that read “Ocasio-Cortez says the world will end in 12 years. She’s absolutely right.”
Apparently, O’Rourke, the kids, The Post, and the GOP all “have the social intelligence of a sea sponge.”
Or perhaps Ocasio-Cortez took a bad faith swipe at the GOP when she made her boneheaded climate change comments in the first place, and now she’s making a bad faith attempt to walk them back.

WOW: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Caught LYING UNDER OATH about Censorship in Senate Testimony
This is damning.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is giving testimony to the U.S. Senate today after being subpoenaed over his social media monopoly’s brazen censorship and electoral interference with regards to leaks of Hunter Biden’s embarrassing personal information from the laptop from hell.
Things are not going well for Dorsey, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has pointed out. He noted, ironically in a tweet, that Dorsey lied under oath while giving his testimony on Wednesday.
Dorsey told Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that anyone can now share the Hunter Biden stories from the New York Post on his platform. Individuals on Twitter soon went on Twitter to prove in real time that he was lying.

Other clips from Dorsey’s appearance before the Senate are not much better, as the disheveled tech CEO fluttered in the limelight.

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s aggressive role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference considering the censorship campaign is being perpetrated in large part to help his father’s presidential hopes:
A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.
“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.
“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.
When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”
The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.
“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.
“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.
Dorsey should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath. Big Tech is a bigger threat to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.
