Ocasio-Cortez Bungled Green New Deal’s Release. Her Staff Took Its Webpage Offline
She's such an idiot. Is it any wonder why she is a leader of the Democrats.
An adviser to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Friday night fact-checked Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to his face for peddling falsehoods about the Green New Deal being proposed by left-leaning Democrats.
Carlson noted that the deal proposes “building out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel would stop becoming necessary.” Hockett replied it was “apparently being misunderstood, right? We are really talking about expanding optionality here, we are not talking about getting rid of anything, right?”
“We are talking about basically making it cost-effective to move into more modern forms of technology, more modern forms of production, which would then enable people actually cost-effectively to transition to that stuff,” Hockett added. “We are not talking about requiring anything or prohibiting anything. That’s sort of 1980s-style environmentalism.”
Hockett explained how the aim was really to obtain carbon neutrality. “Then good, then I’m glad, it’s nice to have a smart person on the show to explain this,” Carlson replied, in a tone that some people on social media have suggested was sarcastic.
Dems are stepping it back bigtime
Fox News' Tucker Carlson Gets Fact-Checked On Own Show Over Green New Deal
You're such a miserable little shit, none of them probably like you.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her aides are rushing to clarify details of her recently proposed Green New Deal (GND) after an FAQ sheet it released sparked an uproar.
Ocasio-Cortez's office sent a copy of the resolution this week as well as an embargoed FAQ sheet about the initiative to various media outlets, including The Hill. NPR published the FAQ sheet, which included provisions about eliminating air travel, guesswork surrounding cows' flatulence and economic security for those who are "unable or unwilling to work."
The document swiftly drew the ire of conservatives who said some of the policies in the FAQ document showed the GND was not a serious proposal.
"There are multiple doctored GND resolutions and FAQs floating around. There was also a draft version that got uploaded + taken down. There's also draft versions floating out there," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Saturday, attaching the proposal she introduced in the House.

Incredibly strange dynamic rn. A zillion outlets have run w/ GND = mystery FAQ sheet, which includes things like $ for those "unwilling to work"
But thats not in the plan the Senators signed off on. Now AOC is retweeting her adviser telling Fox the sheet is itself not theirs

Point is, the real one is our submitted resolution, H.Res. 109:

"When I talk about the GND, this is what I'm referring to - nothing else," she added in another tweet, again linking to the legislation.
The confusion first ballooned Friday evening when Robert Hockett, a Cornell law professor advising Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal, went on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show. When Carlson questioned some of the claims in the FAQ sheet put out by Ocasio-Cortez's office, Hockett said the document he was citing was "erroneous" and "doctored."
"So as best I can tell it appears that Tucker and I were referring to separate documents last night, as apparently there were many! The one that I know I and the Congresswoman were aware of was a hoax, about which the Congresswoman had tweeted. The one Tucker was referring to was apparently something else," Hockett said in a statement to The Hill.
"Since most of us who are involved in this wonderful new Green New Deal initiative were all over the news media yesterday excitedly discussing the big rollout of the day before, it was pretty much impossible for all of us to know about all of the same documents at the same time, so we did the best we could to address the ones we knew about when we could," he added.
"I'm very much hoping, in any event, that we might all turn to discussing the actual content of the actual Resolution onto which so many in Congress have signed very soon."
Ocasio-Cortez's office said that while doctored FAQ documents are circulating on the internet, the one it released was an unfinished draft that it had not intended to publish.
"There separately IS a doctored FAQ floating around. And an early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn't represent the GND resolution got published to the website by mistake (idea was to wait for launch, monitor q's, and rewrite that FAQ before publishing)," Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabati said.
"Mistakes happen when doing time launches like this coordinating multiple groups and collaborators. It's hard to have both a transparent and open process with many stakeholders while keeping all info locked down. But what's in the resolution is the GND."

Ocasio-Cortez's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
LOL, what is it with you communists and your constant state of psychological projection?
Inquiring minds want to know!
NEW YORK DEMOCRATS COULD ELIMINATE OCASIO-CORTEZ’S DISTRICT AFTER 2020
But Ocasio-Cortez’s most determined adversaries are not partisan Republicans, but Democrats who say that she has been a disruptive influence. The Hill recently reported that at least one member of Congress has been urging New York party leaders to recruit a Democratic primary challenger to Ocasio-Cortez.
I am constantly left to wonder wtf he is talking about.
Apparently someone should be blamed for something, and apparently that's me and everyone else.
**** knows why.
We can always expect a weird and incomprehensible comment back from Danbones.
Maybe, we can get a "Heritage Minute" made about them.
