NYC’s Nanny State Strikes Again, This Time They Are Coming For Hamburgers and Hot Dogs

Published

According to Breitbart News, New York City’s recently passed “Green New Deal” will reduce the amount of red meat served in city-run facilities by half.

This program is being conducted in the name of battling climate change.

This “Green New Deal” is different from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal at the federal level.

This local Green New Deal will slowly reduce the purchase of red meat in public schools, hospitals, and correctional facilities by 2040. The end goal is to cut meat purchases by 50 percent. The total costs of this program are estimated to be around $14 billion.

Through its passage of this iteration of the Green New Deal, New York is the first city in the world to enact this kind of measure.

The municipal Green New Deal comes right after New York City’s announcement to expand “Meatless Monday” to all public schools in the area starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

Despite being separate legislation from Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, both proposals share an emphasis on reducing meat consumption.

A divided Congress and a Republican controlled White House makes it next to impossible to pass the Green New Deal at the federal level for the time being.

As a result, climate change alarmists are now taking a page from the gun control movement’s playbook.

They recognize that they can’t get their legislation passed at the federal level, so they’ll work from the bottom up in municipalities and state legislatures.

However, the conversation on the Green New Deal is far from finished.

BLP covered Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’ Rourke’s recent endorsement of the Green New Deal, in which he urged Americans to make sacrifices that were reminiscent to those of WWII.

As the Democratic Party goes further Left, the Green New Deal will likely be a major litmus test issue for future candidates.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
