A Moment of Silence for the Green New Deal

Updated on March 27, 2019

Trump promised that we would win, boy did he deliver on his promise.

While Leftist Tears were pouring over the conclusion that Trump did not collude with the Russians, the Diva Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(AOC) beautiful “Green New Deal” proposal was slammed in Congress.

For a bill that was seen as so important. AOC was saying that we were literally going to die in the next 10 years and this bill would save us all from that apocalypse. This is what turned out:


Do you want to save the world? The Democratic response “ meh, present.”


A 0-57 vote was reached, literally no one wanted to have this bill on their name.

All of the Democratic candidates running for president didn’t vote yes when they praised the Green New Deal a couple of weeks ago.

Senator Mike Lee had the best take on all of this when he pulled out a picture of Ronald Reagan sitting on a dinosaur with a machine gun. I imagine that when the Founding Fathers were constructing the vision of Congress that they didn't realize one day that this would be a topic of discussion.


The best rebuttal to all of this came from Kirsten Gillibrand, the woman who is less interesting than ranch according to an Iowa voter, she came out and said “Today's #GreenNewDeal vote is a partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action, and give Republicans cover to put oil lobby checks over our kids.”

So let me get this straight Miss Gillibrand. When a vote for a bill that you endorsed, you claimed it to be holier than the Dalai Lama, when that came to a vote in the United States Congress, you just said: “Nah, the Republicans are just trying to prevent us from stopping climate change.” When we are actively showing how ridiculous the whole bill is. If you want a full rundown of the bill I left a link for a previous article about the Green New Deal.

Well, I guess we are all going to die in 10 years guys if we are to follow the Democratic logic.

      I would argue that the issues were over for the most part. Yes countries like Hungary and Poland were controlled by the Soviets but the majority of countries in the world were liberated by the Allies. Maybe it just comes down to an opinion but that seems like a victory to me.

      South Korea was a truce, and that is not the same as a win.

      Look at the power of N Korea in a military sense today.

      And yes WWI and WWII is included in losing the war.

      My definition of winning a war is that the issues are over, and we don't have to do it again.

      WW1 was the war to end all wars, of course it wasn't called WW1 it was just called WW. That is proof that we didn't win WWI.

      When we entered the War in Europe after Pearl Harbor. The NAZIs had occupied and controlled Easter Europe, all the countries they controlled were once free countries. At the end of WWII, these countries went from the NAZIs to the USSR. That lasted until the USSR just became Russia.

      The point is that beginning at the end of WWII we entered the Cold War and that didn't end until the USSR became Russia. Now, some in the US congress want us to start up another cold war.

      During the cold war we had the Korean War, and the Vietnam War that we didn't win because they were backed by the USSR and China. We liberated China from the Japanese and then they turned communist. We weren't fighting N Korea, or N Vietnam we were fight China and the USSR. So how did that work if we actually won WWII.

      Authoritarianism is a form of government characterized by strong central power and limited political freedoms.Individual freedoms are subordinate to the state and there is no constitutional accountability and rule of law under an authoritarian regime.

      B: look closely and see if you can see how the democrats have shifted to this in this century.

      -------------------------------------

      Once again these are my opinions.

      I was referring to South Korea in that example.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but I assume you're not talking about WW1 and WW2 in that scenario of "we lost every war in the last 100 years". Those two wars were the best examples of American saving the world from authoritarianism.

      The only reason why the USSR dissolved is because of Gorbachev's incompetence to the communist cause. People who lead authoritarian governments know not to allow their citizens to speak freely aka glasnost. When people speak freely they almost always want to rebel.

      As they said in Star Wars, these are not the terrorists you are looking for.

      Iran captured the US embassy there, and we didn't invade them.

      Going to war with N Korea and Vietnam was dumb because the politicians started the war, and the politicians lost the war. Communism would have died on its own eventually like it did in the USSSR. We didn't invade the USSR or even Russia, nor should we.

      We have in my opinion, lost all the wars in the last 100 years with my definition of winning.

      Using your logic, if these 19 terrorists were based and trained in Canada, then we would have invaded Canada.

      "bad for the US to intervene due to the waste of American lives on a resource-poor nation, but now is one of the strongest economies in Asia because of American influence."

      B: What nation is that?

      The issue is that Iraq and Afghanistan was a different situation to others because we were attacked by terrorist. I'm willing to admit that for the time being it was a waste invading, but that can change. Look at Korea, some Americans might have said in the 1950's it was bad for the US to intervene due to the waste of American lives on a resource-poor nation, but now is one of the strongest economies in Asia because of American influence.

      Don't you think that invading Iraq and Afghanistan was a total waste of American lives, and lives in general. There was no need to do that, and if WMDs were the reason then we should have also invaded N Korea, Pakistan and Iran.

      Removing Saddam didn’t automatically give the iraqies freedom, but it is a stepping stone. Maybe in like 10 years we can judge again wether it was a good move to invade.... oh wait I forgot the world is going to end by then.

      We don't even have democracy anymore, and Iraq has less of chance than Iran.

      I would definitely say that usually urgent responses to situations mostly never work. On the Iraq war, how I look at it is that it’s simply too early to judge wether we made a good move going to war with them. Right now we may see it as bad but what about in 20 or 30 years if Iraq turns into one of the few democratic government in the Middle East? It’s similar to the Black Death. People dying obviously isn’t good but it did encourage innovation in Europe and opened up the labor market, based off of my 9th grade knowledge of history

      After posting my last comment, I thought of something else.

      This green solution and its sense of urgency, a decade is urgent.

      This is useful when you want people to make snap decisions. Snap decisions don't usually mean intelligent decisions. Like what happened after 911. What that resulted in was a loss of our privacy, and more control by the government.

      Without the sense of urgency, I doubt whether we would have given the government the Patriot Act, or Invaded Iraq. And how is carbon trading helping the environment. What it does help is trading money for taxes.

      Urgency is the ability to get people and animals to stampede. And there is no intelligence in a stampede. But the people that cause the stampede have the intelligence to direct that stampede.

      Just a thought.

      Pretty good point Brad,

      Also side note. Apparently a glacier was given attention because there was an “alarming” decrease in the size of it due to global warming. There’s now people saying it increasing. Here’s the link

      Then, all 60 votes in the house to send it to the senate where it tanked 0-57 were house democrats.

      Since 1980 till today, the US population has increased by 100 million people, and the world population increased by 3 billion people.

      US population 1980 (226,536) 2019 (327,167)

      World Population 1980 (4,458,411,534 ) 2019 (7,714,576,923)

      That is a lot of carbon dioxide just from people.

      So it would seem logical that we have an inhale only law?

      The way that the green movement tries to solve the problem is similar to conservation. And conservation doesn't work when the population keeps increasing. The solution if any is needed should come from factoring in the increasing population. And coming all this way in modern living to revert back to the cave days doesn't seem like a solution.

      It seems to not be the case sadly. I wish it did. I want Democrats to be on the record and I want people to see them defend this idiotic bill so that people can vote them out.

      The party has now been infected with the cancer of leftism. If they can remove that cancer I don’t think it’ll be the end of the US if they get power. Wether or not that will happen is if “moderates” like Nancy or Joe can stand up to AOC and Ilhan, will that happen? Probably not

      The Problem with the Democrats today... is they are by and large becoming populated by politicians of the Pro-Globalization, No-Borders, Apologizing for America's Past... "Free" healthcare, "Free" college, Full Benefits mantra.

      You cannot open up your borders to the world, allow all your businesses to flee to other nations where labor is cheaper and taxes are less, and then expect to hand everything "Free" to your citizens as well.

      The problem with the Democrats today, is they promise things that cannot work in the real world, and they blame the people who are holding this country together and keeping it from falling into economic collapse for standing in their way of bringing the people all the "free" stuff they are promising.

      The Democratic Party has become filled with politicians who are either depraved and delusional, or are selling out the Nation and peddling delusional promises to their 'faithful' while filling their bank accounts with hundreds of millions of dollars.

      When the Democrats get control again, and give us more abominations like 'Obamacare', the country will abdicate its role as world economic leader, it will forfeit its sovereignty to global institutions, and our quick decline will be unprecedented and never before seen in the annals of the history of mankind.

      Fair enough. We probably won't have to worry about the Green New Deal actually being a major issue until Democrats get major power, and if this week has any correlation to the future it's defiantly not looking bright for Democrats.

      I never stayed into it long enough to hear the ending, nor did I do that for Romeo and Juliet. So, it is more like the Heaven's Gate.

      Led by Marshall Applewhite (1931–1997) and Bonnie Nettles On March 26, 1997, police discovered the bodies of 39 members of the group in a house in the suburb of Rancho Santa Fe. They apparently had participated in a mass suicide in order to reach what they believed was an extraterrestrial spacecraft following Comet Hale–Bopp.

      Just before the suicide, the group's website was updated with the message: "Hale-Bopp brings closure to Heaven's Gate ... Our 22 years of classroom here on planet Earth is finally coming to conclusion – 'graduation' from the Human Evolutionary Level.

      The details are different, but the message is the same.

      ...and I Agree with Brad Masters that it is simply repackaged Algore doctrine -he was slinging same doom & gloom ‘end of world’ shite decades ago all the while being a massive air polluter. The press loved him and promoted all his fallacies yet the earth remains well past his predicted expiration date!

      It still boggles my mind that this happened. They had the opportunity to get their stupid law passed but they didn't do it. It didn't happen "the right way" according to them.

      The Senate rejected the Green New Deal, the measure failed on a 57-to-0 vote, with all Republicans and four Democrats blocking the resolution.

      The six Democratic presidential contenders in the Senate, all of whom co-sponsored the legislation, voted "present" on Tuesday, they wouldn't even go on record as supportive of their own Bill.

      And that sums up the Democrat politicians in DC... they tell a good story, tell their voters what they want to hear, and then do what those filling their pockets with millions tell them to do.

      The biggest frauds, and biggest sellouts, are the Dems.

      At least in Chicken Little there was a happy ending. AOC won't have a movie made about her where she turns into a super attractive model that saves the world and ends with her flying away with paper underpants.

      This is the political version of the childhood story, Chicken Little.

      This is along the same urgency for the world that democrat Al Gore used in 2006. "“unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return.” In Gore’s own words, he claimed we were in “a true planetary emergency.”"

      These urgent predictions are the same thing that 13 years later is being used by AOC.

      BTW, He was one of the worst polluters, but he always bought carbon replacements to offset them. I guess when his speaking fees were $100,000 that wasn't much of a burden.
