Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Behind the Scenes Story by The Elephant's Child


Daniel Henninger at the Wall Street Journal’s column today had a picture of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at the South by Southwest event in Austin.Texas on the 9th of March. His first sentence was brilliant:

Something called “socialism” is in the air. Should we worry? The answer is yes, if you can stop laughing.

That pretty much sums up the situation. When A O-C appeared on the scene, Republicans couldn’t get over the nuttiness of her comments. We couldn’t quite believe the things that were coming out of her mouth. I suspect that all the Republican attention alerted the media to someone with real ‘click bait’, and the more we paid attention, the more they gave her their attention and column space and news coverage. In other words, we created a monster. Does the fact that Republicans find her astonishing in her ignorance, mean more approval from the Democrats? Has their guaranteed distaste for anything conservative meant that they like anything that threatens us? Analyzing the Left is a task I have long assigned myself, but I’m not sure I’m getting anywhere.

Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is, quite literally, impossible. There is no possibility of replacing energy from fossil fuels with solar energy and wind energy. Nationally, with all the emphasis on solar energy, solar plants generated just 0.3% of U.S. power in spite of investment of millions of dollars and mandates that require solar panels in some areas. But I have explained several times previously the impossibility of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. Just scroll down for any number of explanations. It is physically impossible. There is hot the possibility of enough alternative energy to replace fossil fuels, it would destroy the country financially (which is the goal for some), and little things like eating, heating our houses, transportation would all be impossible.

Frank Hawkins has investigated the “Rasputin” behind Ocasio Cortez at American Thinker. Shall we say “the plot thickens”? This seems to be one of those underground operations that sprouts all sorts of other organizations. It’s pretty clear that Nancy Pelosi has lost control of this group. Where it goes from here remains to be seen, but it is very troubling. Do read the whole article and watch the video, and see what you think.
