Nancy Pelosi Names Dan ‘McCain 2.0’ Crenshaw to Her Climate Change Committee
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is receiving a reward from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for spreading globalist propaganda with regards to climate change.
Crenshaw was handpicked by Pelosi, along with moderate Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), as a new member of her Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, according to the Washington Examiner.
They join existing members, including Reps. Garrett Graves (R Gary Palmer (R-AL), Buddy Carter (R-GA), Carol Miller (R-WV), and Kelly Armstrong (R-ND), as lawmakers betraying their constituents to promote federal environmental policy.
Graves describes Crenshaw as “a real asset in our efforts to reduce global emissions while ensuring the U.S. economy continues to grow and our American workers are protected.” They will be working with the Democrats on a report that will recommend federal solutions for climate change.
Big League Politics has reported on Crenshaw’s surrender on environmental policy in the past, as the former military veteran is happy to work with Democrats on half-measures to gain positive press headlines:
“Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) recently came out of the closet, outing himself as a so-called “rational environmentalist” in a Facebook video repeating leftist talking points about the evil of carbon emissions.
“I’m an environmentalist. And I know climate change is real,” Crenshaw said to open his video.
“I’m also rational – and I know that wasting your tax dollars on crazy Green New Deals will put millions out of work and drastically increase your electric bill and your taxes,” he added.
Crenshaw is trying to stake out a middle ground in which he cedes some ground to the Left in order to get in the so-called “national discussion” on environmental policy. This is a rehash of the weak brand of compassionate Republicanism that resulted in eight years of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House.
He claims that his plan is to “make America the world leader in clean energy” by reducing carbon emissions.
“I’m Dan Crenshaw, and I approve this message because if we come together, we can put America on the path to a new energy frontier,” he said to conclude his video.

Crenshaw is not only bad on environmental policy, but also on gun control, foreign policy, immigration, American history, and Christianity. This is why an America First challenger has emerged to defeat Crenshaw in the 2022 Republican primary.
