The Green New Deal Will No Longer Have Meat on the Menu

Published

on

Democrat’s recently unveiled Green New Deal might get in the way of your favorite carnivorous treats.

Spearheaded by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.), the Green New Deal is a government-directed plan to eliminate greenhouse gas emission through carbon taxes, confiscatory levels of taxation, and a myriad of other top-down schemes.

One of the ways the “enlightened” political class in DC wants to reduce greenhouse emissions is by cutting emissions from “farting cows”. In a section of the Green New Deal FAQ sheet that addresses the differences between reaching “100% clean and renewable” energy and “100% renewable” energy, Green New Deal advocates were quick to pin the blame on methane emissions coming from cattle. They conceded that they won’t be able to get to zero greenhouse emission because they aren’t sure that they’ll “be able to fully get rid of farting cows”.

Naturally, groups like the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) have pushed back against these claims on cattle’s impact on greenhouse emissions. Colin Woodall, NCBA senior vice president of government affairs, chimed in on the matter:

Despite all the progress we’ve made on the environmental front in recent decades, some policymakers still seem to think targeting U.S. beef producers and consumers will make a huge impact on global emissions.

Claims that cattle contribute significantly to global warming are dubious at best. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that direct greenhouse gas emissions coming from cattle and their manure are only 2 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.

Virginia Tech and USDA-ARS have also countered the livestock argument. Their research came to the conclusion that if all livestock were eliminated from production agriculture U.S. greenhouse gas emissions would only drop by 2.6 percent or 0.36 percent globally.

Blaming beef for increasing greenhouse emissions is not a novel concept.

The UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) published Livestock’s Long in 2006, arguing that meat production contributed to 18 percent of all greenhouse-gas emissions.

However, such an assertion was challenged by Frank Mitloehner at the University of California at Davis. Mitloehner countered by claiming that the FAO’s original analysis yielded an “apples-and-oranges analogy that truly confused the issue” and led many people to believe that meat production produced a higher output of greenhouse emissions than transportation.

Sadly, Green New Deal proponents don’t care about facts and only care about policies that line up special interests’ pockets, while consolidating their own political power.

If that means taxing your juicy steak to oblivion, so be it.

Middle America’ s opinions and preferences are afterthoughts to control freak politicians.

The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now

Published

on

Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.

She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.

Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.

Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.

However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.

She told BLP:

Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.

Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive.  It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.

Espinoza added:

Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country!  Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.
A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.

DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.

Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.

This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.

Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.

Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.

In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.

Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.

This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.

The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
