Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just suffered this humiliating defeat

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is sitting in an unfamiliar position.

The freshman Congresswoman has only known success since entering the political arena.

But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just suffered this humiliating defeat.

The centerpiece of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to turn America into a socialist nation is her 93 trillion dollar “Green New Deal.”

The “Green New Deal” will ban air plane travel, hamburgers, and gas-powered powered cars.

But while this plan is ambitious, it is also wildly unpopular.

That’s why Democrat leadership in Congress introduced a scaled down version of the plan.

Breitbart reports:

Leading Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives announced a plan Tuesday to introduce a new, more conservative alternative to the “Green New Deal,” the plan introduced earlier this year to great fanfare by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

The original bill, proposed by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) in February, calls for “meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy source” through a “10-year national mobilization” — i.e. roughly by the year 2030. Ocasio-Cortez has also suggested the world only has 12 years before reaching a point of no return before the problem climate change becomes impossible to solve.

The new proposal to be backed by Democrat leadership, however, will set the goal as 2050 — twenty years later, according to The Hill. It also assumes that 2050 is the point of no return — not sometime in the next 12 years.

The new proposal echoes early criticisms of the Green New Deal, such as those offered by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said the party needed a plan that was more practical. “I’m a little bit tired of listening to things that are pie in the sky, that we never are going to pass or never are going to afford,” he said at the time, as quoted by the Washington Examiner.

Nancy Pelosi spent weeks feuding with Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members over immigration.

Now it looks like Pelosi is trying to placate Ocasio-Cortez with a half-measure on her signature legislation.

But will Ocasio-Cortez be satisfied with Pelosi tossing her crumbs?

Or will this defeat inspire her to keep battling Pelosi?

We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

  1. AOC like all Demorats/commirats if this doesn’t say “I’m stupid” nothing will. Air travel That will go over big in DC where all the politicians travel by air and hamburgers????? Wont even go there. Outlaw ALL gas powered vehicles? Can you imagine all the Electric cars by the road side because there batteries ran down and all the politicians standing around scratching there moron heads wondering what to do???? AND what really gets my goat is why is the mass shootings Trumps fault? Notice the moron news never mentions the 37 mass shooting on Obami’s watch!!!AND the band on assult weapons was never upheld when it lapsed in 04, under the demorats! No you don’t hear that.

  2. These Idiots do not realise that the oceans lakes and swamps in the world release more methane gas in 1 day than america can in 10 years

    • Is the so-called Squad really the Democrat’s response to the continuing success of the Trump Administration? This is appalling considering the historic respect and admiration many have had for the Party and it’s leaders of years past such as Roosevelt and Kennedy….shameful and disgraceful.

  3. How can you possibly vote Democrat. Trump is the only one who said what he was going to do AND DID IT. GOD Bless Trump. 4 more years

    • Another 4 years of Trump would be disastrous !! We need a man with integrity, not one who is a pathological liar, and writes cruel tweets. HE IS A CRIMINAL, AND I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY PEOPLE STILL WANT HIM.

      • That pathological liar idea that you picked up I’m someone that wants to promote that simply foolish and unfounded. You really should do study on your own and not get it from the news media that are full of poison. He’s the least criminal although those running for the Democratic party believe me.

      • For a starter, Trump is responding the vile lies said against him. he has a right to return insults with the democrooks. they say nasty lies about him, he returns the favor. people have been defending themselves against lies told about them for as long as we have known how to speak.As far as integrity? you are still talking about politics, right ? the word hardly fits with the subject as politics are concerned. don’t believe it? there are twenty examples, right now in the upcoming elections that prove my point. Trump is by far, the closest this country has come in integrity, and I for one, will continue to support a man, though not a saint, that tells you what he wants to do for our country, then ACTUALLY DOES WHAT he says KEEP AMERICA GREAT Mr Trump. KAG 2020 !

      • The regression of the Democratic Party accelerated during the Clinton years when Integrity, Veracity and Honesty were discarded as meaningful and admirable attributes. …effectively replaced by dishonesty and self-indulgence. Shameful !!

      • Els: You mindless fool…you’re another moron in the giant pool of brainless morons. You’ll never You obviously suffer from rectumyopia wherein you have your asshole mixed up with your optic nerve giving you a sh*tty outlook on life. I could have been your father for a quarter but the neighbor’s dog beat me over the fence.

      • And, who would you think is capable enough to run this country.
        If you read all that Trump has done in just 2 years, it’s amazing what he has accomplished.
        But all you read is the fake news, that leaves out or turns the story into a degrading piece of trash.
        Educate yourself a bit, and just read what this man has done for you, me and our country.
        Look, I am not here to argue with you. But we, ( and many others) have different opinions. And each of our, and others opinions should be respected in a adult way. We can agree to disagree, without disparaging each other.

    • Robert: Hopefully they’ll ride off into the sunset being headless. For all intents and purposes, they essentially have no head as it is since they are all brainless morons!

    • yes, the cortex one who claims to care about the illegal children already sent a death threat to an little 8 year old girl who is a great comedian and mimicking to the ‘t’ AOC. Mini aoc had to take herself off social media for fear of getting executed by this squad member. The little girl was hilarious, more so than older comedians who get paid to be funny.

  4. PEelosi is a severely feeble minded prune and AO-C is suffering from such an intense form of psychosis that there is no known cure for it, the war wages on.

  5. curious outside of killing the US economy how doe she plan to deal with the worlds to biggest polluters of the land water and air> China and India. The USA could easily zero out all of its energy use and still not make a dent it what these two polluters are contributing world wide.

    • With their obvious imperial aggressive actions inevitably China will find themself in a war with both the United States and Russia eventually there will be no more coal burning plants in China.

    • if the US spends trillions to clean up, and back out of the polluters equation, China and India can continue polluting for a much longer time while US trashes their own economy to ‘come clean’
      AOC doesn’t know what she’s talking about. True Bimbilino.

  6. Caucasians will drop below 50% on or before January 1, 2042 and depending on how rapidly opioids kill off Caucasians remember 17 states had negative Caucasian population growth is due to opioid deaths
    July 27, 2019 at 12:54 am

    Wow I’ve never seen so many race as this article produced just a friendly reminder a black lesbian lost to a Republican who had a free reign in jumping names out of the election rules by 5301 votes than you may think she lost but we know she’s going to win in 2022
    One third of the nation is now over 49 Hispanic Caucasians will drop below 50% on or before January 1, 2042 and depending on how rapidly opioids kill off Caucasians remember 17 states had negative Caucasian population growth is due to opioid deaths

    • How do you edit after it’s printed I see some typos well in the first paragraph I believe it’s not race but racists yes I’ve never seen so many races in this place as I did tonight

    • Opioids have nothing to do with it! The white race is not having as many babies as the black race & Muslim race. White women have one or two kids, they are not on welfare and get paid by the kid, Muslim men have a number of wives and they are the father to something like 40 kids each. There you have it and the black folks should not be too happy that they are beating out the white folks because the Muslims are beating you out. You keep killing each other which make it a lot better for the Muslims because they will not have as many heads to cut off.

    • Good I hope it plays out that way one thing you can not fight is deme graphics. It will bite you every time.

  7. Mr. Murti:
    Why you keep posting that “Democrats For Life” address as they’re not any to speak of. It’s like a website that says KKK members for the AACP.

    • The volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing out volcanic ash has, in just four days, negated every single effort you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet!!CO2 is a vital chemical that every plant requires to live and synthesize into oxygen.
      t

    • It’s obvious the reason they changed the prediction from 12 years to the year 2050 is because they probably won’t be remembered by then when they say the climate disaster will occur but doesn’t.

  8. But will Ocasio-Cortez be satisfied with Pelosi tossing her crumbs?

    Of course not, but it will take the JV Donkey some time to realize they are crumbs. But Nancy will insist it will be Amazing.

    Kinda like when she tells us Trump’s Tax cuts didn’t help the average person (who got a few thousand a yr savings) but the $40 Obama gave us was she said- Money that would make a difference in peoples lives! lol, and I never even got my 40 bucks!

    The master con-artist at work. Pay attention Sandy Nancy will school you well.

  9. Vasu;
    And where is the water who waters those vegetables coming from when there’s no rain to water them? That water comes from sprinkler systems that are powered by powerful engine pumps that are powered by electricity which comes from burning fossil fuels smart a** Vasu. Solar and wind power can only supply a mere 10% of our energy needs at best.

  10. Hello!
    I’ll betcha! Girl AOC! next 2020 ELECTION those fellows DISTRICT’S “Constituents” definitely! Oh! in that SEAT?… GOODBYE!… FIRED & Canned …See Ya!

  11. A free market economy Vs a Green New Deal? Vegan author John Robbins provides these points and facts in his Pulitzer Prize nominated Diet for a New America (1987):

    Half the water consumed in the U.S. irrigates land growing feed and fodder for livestock. It takes 25 gallons of water to produce a pound of wheat, but 2,500 gallons to produce a pound of meat. If these costs weren’t subsidized by the American taxpayers, the cheapest hamburger meat would be $35 per pound!

    Livestock producers are California’s biggest consumers of water. Every tax dollar the state doles out to livestock producers costs taxpayers over seven dollars in lost wages, higher living costs and reduced business income. Seventeen western states have enough water supplies to support economies and populations twice as large as the present.

    U.S. livestock produce twenty times as much excrement as the entire human population, creating sewage which is ten to several hundred times as concentrated as raw domestic sewage. Meat producers contribute to half the water pollution in the United States.

    A free market economy Vs the Green New Deal? If we abolish all taxpayer support for the livestock industry, the cheapest hamburger meat would be $35 per pound, effectively making everyone in the United States a vegetarian. This would have far greater and far-reaching consequences than merely taxing meat.

    It takes nearly one gallon of fossil fuel and 2,500 gallons of water to produce just one pound of conventionally fed beef. (Mother Jones)

    Nearly 75% of the grain grown and 50% of the water consumed in the U.S. are used by the meat industry. (Audubon Society)

    • Vasu, why do you come here??????? Your ignorance is profound!!!!! I live in livestock country and you have no clue at all what you are even talking about.

      • Why should *my* tax dollars subsidize *your* choice of “lifestyle” — especially if I don’t want my tax dollars subsidizing the taking of innocent life? Abolishing “welfare ranching” is based upon free market principles which conservatives claim to espouse and would have far greater impact than the so-called “Green New Deal” involving greater expansion of government powers, which conservatives claim to oppose. Abolishing “welfare ranching” is the animal rights equivalent to the Hyde Amendment.

  12. If I Was Nancy Pelosi, I would ask Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Resign from the House of Representatives, because she is giving all of the Democrats a worse Name than they already have and I am a Republican. I have already suggested that she should be removed from the committees she is in.

    • I believe that Nancy and Ocasio-Cortez need to be run out of Washington. Why do their supporters vote for them when they are not qualified????? They don’t know anything but yet they veto all President Trump wants to do. They need to know about the real world and have to live like we do. They don’t deserve their salary as they have not worked for our country since Trump went in. He has done more for us than anyone in years. What is wrong with you guys? You act so “dense”.

      • Oh, I somewhat disagree Sarah, AOC, Nancy and the Squad are doing a great job, the RNC could not have hired a better crew 🙂
        They are helping Trump 2020 more then a billion-dollar campaign could lol.
        And think of who Has Not Been In the News- 25 Democratic clowns.
        WTG ladies keep up the good work!!!

        • Izib
          Once again President Trump’s letting these lunatics give him the victory without him having to utter a word! See we don’t even need dear old putin, we got the libs????

    • She should also be told “You want no one to travel by air, then YOU stop flying and use the trains. That way you can show what you want others to do and they may take you seriously.”

    • I could not agree with you more sir. Aside from AOC lack of any political knowledge and her ongoing antics about whatever it is she is trying profusely to utter out. All I hear is blaa blaa blaa. I sometimes speculate that the only reason she won her district was #1 a pretty face #2 it must have been a joke gone wrong #3 maybe the size of her district consisted of only the bar she waitressed in.

    • You don’t have to worry about OAC. She is history. She cost Andy Cuomo 25,000 Amazon jobs in NY and he will see to it she does not survive a primary challenge. Her district can still be Democrat but without her.

  13. No! President Trump needs to Kick all 4 of this So-Called Squad out of Congress and then out of the United States but first to strip them of their Citizenship.

  14. The stupid bug eyed bitch needs to be recalled by petition. Oh I forgot. We are talking about the people’s republic of New York.

    • Hi Dan! I have signed petitions for All in the Chicken Squatters. I know there are tens of thousands that have signed them. Letters too.
      No clues as to why they are still in Congress. They are flat out domestic terrorist! Congress took an Oath to defend against domestic terrorist. What gives?

    • The “bug eye” indicates a thyroid problem. Maybe she needs to get checked for that? Maybe treatment would get her on a better path.

  15. Vasu:
    If the “green new deal” was implemented,(god forbid) we’d have to ground all of our aircraft, stop driving our cars, buses and trains go without electricity as well as dock all of our boats and ships which all depend on fossil fuels to function as there are no practical alternatives for these fuels. If this ever came true you can take your Hawaiian trip by swimming there you ignoramus.

  16. I don’t understand Republican hostility towards Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. But since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a Green New Deal, she really should be vegan, like so many of her colleagues. An animal rights message is warmly received on the political left, not on the right. Bill Clinton was vegan and Al Gore is vegan. Dennis Kucinich is vegan. Cory Booker is vegan. Reverend Al Sharpton is vegan. Chelsea Clinton was vegan for a number of years: her wedding in 2010 was strictly vegan. Amy Carter is a vegetarian. And the Bush daughters were famous for… underage drinking? Well, to be fair, PETA reports that Lauren Bush, niece of George W. Bush, is a vegetarian.

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      • Ditto that Dan! What a crock of crapola. Where are they from? Not where they live where is Vasu from? Sounds like a Muslim. They all do that half baked fact throwing like that are soooo wise? Just useless dribble. But they all do it.

    • Vasu …

      Cortez wanted to ban hamburgers? Her “chief of staff” may be a Hindu Indian from India where the people don’t eat cows due to their reincarnation belief?

      Becoming a full-blown vegan can be dangerous to health. See that the liberals think they know what’s the best for the society …

      Stay away from us.

    • You dam dumb dems you well all srew this country up like pos Obama did to this country you dems aware pure pos people srew a dam demrat

    • I don’t think it’s just Cortez that we the people don’t like, but the out of touch with America squad in its entirety. And when Omar is in the mix, it goes downhill. We don’t want anyone pushing the green new deal on us, but Omar is so Anti-American that we know any policy that she supports is not going to be for the good of Americans. She’s also in a crap load of hot water and looking at being held criminally accountable. So it makes no sense for congress to come to the American people with their policies and expect support. Bottom line, the so called squad is hurting democrats right now.

      • Why should *my* tax dollars subsidize *your* choice of “lifestyle” — especially if I don’t want my tax dollars subsidizing the taking of innocent life?

Abolishing “welfare ranching” is the animal rights equivalent to the Hyde Amendment.

    • When I lived in Virginia during Clinton’s term he was famous for buying hamburgers! Maybe he went vegan after.

    • Vasu Merti: Thank you for being a sole voice of reason in this wasteland of name-calling, nine word responses. The Green New Deal does NOT call for banning hamburgers or air travel, but just a call for a reduction in factory farming and fossil fuel dependency. The Green New Deal is overly ambitious, but it’s goals are positive; you have to start somewhere.

      • If the animal exploitation industries had to compete on the open market, they’d collapse overnight. I’m pointing out to conservatives: why should *my* tax dollars subsidize *your* choice of “lifestyle” — especially if I don’t want my tax dollars subsidizing the taking of innocent life? Abolishing “welfare ranching” is based upon free market principles which conservatives claim to espouse and would have far greater impact than the so-called “Green New Deal” involving greater expansion of government powers, which conservatives claim to oppose. Abolishing “welfare ranching” is the animal rights equivalent to the Hyde Amendment.

    • Really Bill Clinton well we all know what he is and Al Gore oh yeah he invented the internet and dear ole Al Sharpton well H-m-m Guess all great minds work alike

    • Bernie is raising his staff to 15 dollars an hour, but wait he is also cutting thier hours. So higher wages equates few hours and same amount of money earned. Maybe Bernie needs a keyas installed!

    • Vasu Take your head out of your ass if you want to be a vegan I don’t care!! I love veggies next to my steak.You also forgot to add a vegan to your list his name was Hitler.go crawl back under the rock you came from.

    • It’s documented, and you can see it also.
      It’s difficult to talk to a person that’s not on a reasonable level
      of knowledge, about subjects concerning planet earth.
      We are small, earth is big……all the people on earth can drown
      in a spot on the ocean. That’s how big earth is, your not a flat earther to are you?

  17. There is already no return, and bankrupting the world with ridiculous schemes will have no effect. The earth will continue to warm until the ice caps are gone, then begin gradually cooling into the next ice age, just as it has all along. It is nothing but foolish arrogance to think we are capable of causing or stopping it. The money would be much better spent on adapting.

  18. Alessandra’s “Green New Deal” will ban air plane travel”. She has already cost New Yorkers 25,000 jobs and billions in revenues. How many more jobs and revenues will be lost if JFK and LaGuardia are shut down?

    • And here I thought Dia de los Muertos was in October, but apparently it is November 3, when the dead are dug up to cast their votes.

      • Ya California found over 1.5 million illegal votes. And the electoral college will suffer because demoncrates are loosing their asses. The liar’s will change the rules to win and that won’t work. What other states are lying about the count ?

  19. Lets be honest, humans being are predators and meat is one of the things we can eat. Now you don’t have to if you don’t want to. It is not up some non meat eating to force me to change my eating habits. Hamburger is nothing more than ground up beef and is easier to digest. I don’t know about other people buy buy aa chuck roast and have in ground up into hamburger, it is versatile that way.Realistically to a new green deal (base on theories) would be deviating to the economy

  20. Worst part is …. any deal is selling out the American voters …. Remember when Al Gore stated the polar ice caps will melt away …. well the date has come and the polar caps are still there. Regretfully, this individual does not care about anyone just her backside and will sell whatever to protect it.

      • Having faith is important…but action against the left is has more value. Sitting back and doing nothing will only result in “what you get” for apathy. Sorry you don’t like what I have to say, yet if you wish to protect Christianity…best rise up and take action.

        • David, you and Randall are both right. We are to trust God/Jesus, but Jesus did not tell us to sit back and do nothing. We are to go out and fight evil and bring all to Him that we can.
