New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Edward Markey are the main members of Congress behind the “Green New Deal” sham proposal (that’s an absolute embarrassment by the way), and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to move it forward:
Hey, look at that! The Dems’ emergency proposal that they say would save the planet from a fiery demise will get a vote. Progressive climate change alarmists like Sen. Markey must be thrilled, right? Well, no:
Give McConnell at least a hundred “called your bluff” points. The Dems don’t want this steaming pile of multi-trillion dollar socialism brought to a vote because they don’t want to be on record.
At the same time Virginia’s governor is spinning like a top after the emergence of a blackface photo from the 1980s, the state’s Lt. Governor is fending off a sexual harassment accusation:
Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who over the weekend was championed by many Democrats as a successor to embattled Gov. Ralph Northam, is now fiercely defending his own reputation in the face of a sexual assault allegation.
Fairfax said it was no coincidence that the allegation, which was published on the same conservative website Sunday night that first published a photo from Northam’s page in the 1984 Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook showing a man in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, surfaced just days after the Northam bombshell.
“Does anybody think it’s any coincidence that on the eve of potentially my being elevated that that’s when this uncorroborated smear comes out? Does anybody believe that’s a coincidence?” Fairfax asked a swarm of reporters Monday at the Capitol, where the lieutenant governor presided over the Senate chamber during a long day of legislative business.
Remember what happened after the uncorroborated Brett Kavanaugh allegations? The Democrats were in full “BELIEVE ALL WOMEN” mode, but now?
And what does Bernie “we need a national discussion about sexual harassment and abuse of power” Sanders think about a woman’s allegation against Justin Fairfax? Comrade Bernie went to “fake a phone call” extremes in order to dodge that question:
Instant hypocrisy classic!
The tendency of certain liberal wannabe fascists over what you do and don’t “need” continues, this time from a completely clueless Connecticut state senator:
Either she’s getting a commission on all the ammunition sales that kind of talk from a politician results in, or she’s a total idiot. I know which option my money is on.
Gilchrest is obviously decided that I only need a certain amount of bullets or shotgun shells to defend my home — and that’s provided I don’t do what any responsible gun owner does, and that is go out and practice shooting so you actually know what the f**k you’re doing, unlike progressive politicians. And have you noticed that the Democrats’ concern about how thing unfairly “impact the poor” doesn’t extend to their right to defend themselves, not to mention their 2nd Amendment rights?
There really are no words:
The funny thing about radical lefties like Tran is that they probably don’t see any issue with this:
Tran came under fire Tuesday for her support of legislation that would allow an abortion to be performed just moments before the birth of a child.
Tran’s other piece of legislation aims to protect insects such as “gypsy moths” and “cankerworms.”
According to Virginia’s Legislative Information System, House Bill No. 2495 is:
A BILL to amend and reenact § 15.2-2403 of the Code of Virginia and to amend the Code of Virginia by adding in Article 1 of Chapter 9 of Title 15.2 a section numbered 15.2-926.4, relating to cankerworms; eradication; prohibition on spraying during certain months.
Yep, she’s get her “priorities” alright.
Polar vortexes have been areas over the earth’s poles for almost as long as there’s been an earth. The term “polar vortex” was first used to describe the atmospheric low-pressure areas as far back as 1853. So naturally lefties like Elizabeth Warren are trying to tie the age-old occurrence to man-made climate change, pledging to get rid of it if only we transfer a few trillion dollars of wealth to liberal schemes under the guise of “saving the planet.” Vote for Elizabeth Warren in 2020 if you want to end the modern scourge of weather:
What a condescending embarrassment.
But for now it’s not totally clear that Warren’s decided to commit to the 2020 race, which is what this is all about:
Gee, I sure hope she runs and wins so this polar vortex goes away!
