WASHINGTON, D.C. — In the latest display of liberal, faith-based eco-fanaticism, newly-elected U.S. Rep. Oscasio-Cortez is attempting to force a “green ‘new deal'” on the American people, according to reports.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “new deal” is a very expensive deal. It is, in fact, fiscally impossible without expanding U.S. GDP (total wealth created by American people in a single year) by four times its current size, according to Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) from from 2003 to 2005.
Holtz-Eakin is now head of the right-of-center think tank “American Action Forum,” which released the report.
In fact, current unfunded federal liabilities owed to the rest of the world, i.e. America’s creditors — the countries who own U.S. treasuries and to whom America must pay annual interest in order to even turn the lights on and pump clean water into our communities — exceed $80 trillion (four times world GDP).
When such figures are taken into account, it’s not difficult to understand how some in Congress and the public may identify mathmatical deficiencies in Cortez’s ambitious “green” agenda.
The so-called “Green ‘New Deal'” may tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum.
“The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive,” the group said in its analysis. “It’s further expansion of the federal government’s role in some of the most basic decisions of daily life, however, would likely have a more lasting and damaging impact than its enormous price tag.”
“That includes between $8.3 trillion and $12.3 trillion to meet the plan’s call to eliminate carbon emissions from the power and transportation sectors and between $42.8 trillion and $8.6 trillion for its economic agenda including providing jobs and health care for all,” reports Bloomberg.
Cortez’s “green” agenda is nothing more than the latest manifestation of “Watermelon Marxism” — green on the outside, but red on the inside.
It’s an old technique for socialists to utilize the cover of other issues and emotional appeals to conceal totally unrelated (but coveted) policies of wealth redistribution and totalitarian control.
Don’t believe us at Big League Politics; believe former Obama admin. Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein. During the lead-up to former Pres. Barack Obama’s own attempted “Green ‘New Deal,'” Sunstein wrote the following:
It is even possible that desirable redistribution is more likely to occur through climate change policy than otherwise, or to be accomplished more effectively through climate policy than through direct foreign aid.
We agree that if the United States does spend a great deal on emissions reductions as part of an international agreement, and if the agreement does give particular help to disadvantaged people, considerations of distributive justice support its action, even if better redistributive mechanisms are imaginable.
Furthermore, Sunstein thinks that “[i]f we care about social welfare, we should approve of a situation in which a wealthy nation is willing to engage in a degree of self-sacrifice when the world benefits more than that nation loses.”
Sunstein is not alone. Van Jones — Obama’s environmental czar — propigated the term, “eco-apartheid.” Such convenient (and self-serving) ideological devices are the basic for Jones’ wild-eyed exclamation, “Give them the wealth! Give them the wealth! No justice on stolen land…we owe them a debt.”
Obama presumably was on board, since even he pledged to “bankrupt” the coal industry, among other outrageous remarks:
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
Obama’s “cap-and-trade” plan would have reduced U.S. GDP by $9 trillion and lowered emissions past a point where no industrial nation could endure — wholly consistent with Obama’s pledge to bankrupt the coal industry, despite the fact that coal accounts for 50 percent of U.S. energy consumption.
Obama also tried to lock the U.S. into the never-ratified Kyoto Protocol — despite the obvious threats to US security. In its non-partisan report to study the implications of implementing Kyoto, the US Environmental Information Agency predicted a loss of between $100-400 billion in US GDP and skyrocketing energy prices. Moreover, the Kyoto Treaty’s effect on our national security due to reductions in military training and operational tempo would have been staggering.
When combined with the no-sale Copenhagen Treaty and the Paris Agreement, both of which sought to achieve global wealth redistribution under the banner of “climate debt,” Cortez’s “Green ‘New Deal'” is clearly the extension of socialist ideology by other means.
There’s nothing new under the Sun, especially hot-tempered socialists.
Cortez should cool off before she confuses her next outburst of grade-school antics with sensible public policy.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Must CENSURE Uncle Mitt Romney After Impeachment Betrayal
Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney-McDaniel has claimed to be a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump as well as her uncle Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) throughout the years, often straddling the line between the warring factions within her party.
“This President has stood for life. He stood for rule of law judges. He stood for tax cuts. He stood for deregulation, energy independence. These are Republican ideals,” McDaniel said earlier this week in favor of Trump.
“And he has made the RNC significantly stronger by supporting our party. And we will be stronger after him because of the investment he’s put in data and digital and the things to make us strong beyond his presidency,” she added.
McDaniel has steadfastly supported the President, and kept her distance from her uncle as he has emerged as the leading anti-Trump voice in the Republican Party. This arrangement has worked well for the most part, until the infamous announcement made by her uncle earlier today.
Romney announced that he would be officially joining the Democrat Party witch hunt against the President during a lachrymose screed on the Senate floor. Romney dubiously said that God told him that he needed to vote to convict President Trump due to an alleged quid pro quo he made with Ukraine.
McDaniel rushed to social media shortly after Romney’s announcement to wag her finger at her uncle over his betrayal of President Trump as she has been forced to do several times in the past.
This is not the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last.
The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him.
I, along with the @GOP, stand with President Trump.
— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) February 5, 2020
However, it’s not merely enough to “disagree” with Romney at this point. The vile acts he has committed must be punished, and punished swiftly. McDaniel has a tremendous amount of power in her leadership role atop the RNC, which she could use to punish her uncle for his treasonous display.
One measure that the RNC could take is to formally censure this reviled individual who brings shame to the Republican Party. McDaniel could throw her weight behind such a measure in order to sternly rebuke her turncoat uncle. It is what has to be done in order to send a message to weak-kneed Republicans that their actions will have consequences.
The RNC last censured a Michigan committeeman five years ago for making naughty posts on social media that caught bad headlines. What Mitt Romney has done is a million times worse than that, and he has given ammunition to the enemies of America as they try to rip the country away from President Trump’s “America First” movement.
If McDaniel refuses to censure her uncle for his crimes against party and country, it will show that she can offer nothing more than lip service in defending President Trump from the pernicious enemies within. It will show that she does not have the courage to steer the ship in a Trump-dominated GOP that demands a bold fighter in a position of leadership.
Ms. Chairwoman, the line has been drawn in the sand. You can be wishy-washy no longer. It is time to pick a side. Censure your disgraceful relative so he can be recalled from office and tossed into the ashbin of history forever, with his rotten family name alongside it.
