Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez at War: AOC Green New Deal Proposal Disappears!
Ocasio-Cortez released her Green New Deal Summary on Thursday with huge fanfare and on Friday it suddenly disappeared!
The disappearance came soon after a series of questions that Pelosi was being asked about the proposal and FAQ, that made her obviously uncomfortable.
“I haven’t read it yet”, was basically her response!
Within a short time, long enough for Pelosi to read the document, the whole thing just disappeared!
Fortunately for America… we have the WayBackMachine!
Here’s the Proposal FAQ: HERE!
Nancy Pelosi didn’t seem all that impressed with Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal in the first place. She was asked about the “the proposal in an interview with Politico on Wednesday. Pelosi seemed to poopoo the whole thing, while being as nice as she could.
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive. The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
Then Pelosi was asked about the proposal at her weekly news conference on Thursday afternoon. Pelosi struck a less dismissive tone, not quite sure what to say.
“Quite frankly I haven’t seen [the Green New Deal], but I do know that it’s enthusiastic, and we welcome all the enthusiasm that’s out there,” Pelosi stated. “I’m very excited about it all, and I welcome the Green New Deal and any other proposals.”
Then, obviously she read it!
There is definitely a battle coming. Like Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez is not afraid to openly call herself a socialist and openly praises socialism.
But when Trump condemned socialism at the State of the Union Address last week, Nancy Pelosi applauded…
Ocasio-Cortez is charismatic, and has become a HUGE rising star in the Democratic Party and in the house. Before it was released, she already had 60 co-signers for her Green New Deal. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have already signed on and are discussing it openly.
This puts Nancy Pelosi in a very hard spot. How do you keep the Democrat party from totally being engulfed by socialism, without making enemies of the friendlies of Ocasio-Cortez?
As well, Ocasio-Cortez is three times as gaffe prone as is Joe Biden.
After Ocasio-Cortez gave NPR the scoop on her Green New Deal, her office provided NPR the Green New Deal resolution and its accompanying FAQ document that laid out its goals, namely to “Move America to 100% clean and renewable energy” within 10 years.
What immediately became clear, however, was that the legislative language didn’t match with Ocasio-Cortez’s FAQ, especially when it came to nuclear power, welfare programs and “farting cows.”
Then the headlines began to roll! The proposal was actually chucked full of great conservative headlines!
It was seriously a catastrophe that I am sure even Bernie Sanders turned red at!
Ocasio-Cortez wants to get rid of everything in 10 years, not just airplanes and cow farts. Fossil Fuels and Nuclear Power Plants are at the top of the list!
A Green New Deal is a massive investment in renewable energy production and would not include creating new nuclear plants. It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.
She has constantly pointed out that 10 years is her goal, but she thinks it will tale longer.

This is going to be fun!
