It Sure Looks Like Ocasio-Cortez Just Copy-Pasted an Old Bernie Bill

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is lipstick on a pig.

Ocasio-Cortez – Occasional Cortex, as she’s known, because she’s so thick she doesn’t even know how stupid she is – is the lipstick, obviously.

And the pig is the Green New Deal itself which isn’t remotely new, or particularly green, and which is far too expensive and damaging to merit the flattering term ‘deal’.

But since with the telegenic dancing congresswoman promoting it it’s not going to go away, perhaps we’d do well to examine it in more detail.

Natural Gas Now blog has the dirt.

The Green New Deal is just a warmed-over version of Bernie Sanders’s 2015 Keep It in the Ground Act.

Brexit Was a Crazed, Sinister, Disastrous Plot, Explains Cumberbatch TV Drama

I’ve belatedly caught up with Brexit: the Uncivil War — the Channel 4 drama about Brexit starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Here’s what I learned:

1. Brexit was the most enormous mistake.

2. It unleashed a populist beast which should never have been let out of its cage.

3. The tensions it created will divide Britain for years and do little but harm.

4. The Remain campaign was honourable and right but was undone by its own decency.

5. The Brexit campaign was run by a bunch of back-stabbing chancers and weirdos.

6. It only won because it cheated by having a borderline autistic megalomaniacal genius called Dominic Cummings in charge.

7. And because it was handed this sneaky, underhand data harvesting technology by the scary rich Americans who also made Donald Trump happen, enabling it cunningly to make the British people vote against their best interests by feeding them lies about the NHS, the £350 million a week EU membership fee, and the threat of Turkish immigration.

‘Bollocks to Brexit!’ Says Britain’s Deep State

Brexit

The Remainer Deep State is killing Brexit.

Just consider for a moment the last few days’ shenanigans in and around Parliament.

First the concocted hysteria about the barracking of Remainer MP Anna Soubry, designed to recast ordinary Brexiteers as mindless, fascist thugs.

Next two extraordinary pieces of ad hoc legislation rushed through in the last few days, eagerly ushered in by the Remainer Speaker of the House John Bercow, and voted through by a Remainer-dominated Parliament, designed with the sole purpose of frustrating the “No Deal” Brexit that is now Britain’s only way of getting the full Brexit it voted for in June 2016.

MP Anna Soubry’s ‘Nazi’ Scare Is Pure Remainer Propaganda

Audio version.

Today’s excuse as to why Brexit mustn’t happen is that a gaggle of protestors in yellow vests have been caught on film outside the Houses of Parliament calling Remainer MP Anna Soubry a “Nazi”.
Anna Soubry has been milking the story for all she is worth.

So have the fellow Remainer activists who were handily there to witness and then big up the incident — paid EU shill Femi Sorry and Care Bear Communist Owen Jones.

Loony Greens Demand Meat Tax

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas poses for a photograph with a green question mark outside the entrance to Downing Street in central London on May 30, 2017, during a general election campaign event to highlight the lack of debate by other political parties on environmental issues, as campaigning continues in …

Audio version.

Loony Greens, led by their only MP Caroline Lucas, are campaigning to impose a meat tax on the UK. Because climate change — or some such nonsense.

Lucas, a sort of demonic pixie-creature spawned by Mother Gaia with the sole purpose of enabling the rich bunny-huggers and tofu-munchers in her expensive but super-woke Brighton constituency to parade their green virtue and annoy the rest of the country, also thinks that bacon and sausages are destroying lives and killing the National Health Service and that only higher taxes can save us.

As she argues in the leftist New Statesman:

“Experts […] found the price of bacon and sausages would have to increase by 80 per cent to cover their cost to our NHS and save nearly 6,000 lives a year.”

She was also given space to speak at a farming conference, of all places.

Care Bear Commies Like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Are Dangerous. The Fightback Starts Here…

Communism is ugly, dangerous and whenever and wherever it has been tried it has made people poorer, more miserable and often more dead.

That’s why one of our most pressing missions in 2019 is to defend Western Civilisation from what I call the Care Bear Commies – all those youthful, telegenic, smiley, hard-left activists you see across the media reassuring your kids that actually communism is likeable and fun and the only reason it gets such a bad rap is that it hasn’t been tried properly yet.

Probably the world’s current most egregious example of this disturbing trend is U.S. congressional representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who seems to believe – with some justification, worryingly – that no one will notice the terrifying commie tendencies of her Green New Deal (i.e., her plan to impose a watermelon tyranny on the U.S.) so long as she looks cute enough in those college dance videos.

Another Kamikaze Plot by MPs to Destroy Brexit with ‘Trump-Style’ Shutdown

Brexit
AFP/EMMANUEL DUNAND

Audio version.

‘An all-party group of senior MPs’ are plotting to sabotage Brexit by ‘starving the [British] government of cash and creating a Donald Trump-style shutdown’.

Do any of these gimps appreciate what a terrible look this is for representative democracy?

According to the Sunday Times, this group includes “former Labour cabinet minister Yvette Cooper”, along with former Tory ministers Nicky Morgan, Oliver Wetwin and Nick Boles. The idea is to vote on “two amendments to the Finance Bill that would lead to a gridlock in Whitehall unless Theresa May wins approval from parliament for a deal with Brussels.”

No, I have no idea either whether this plan is likely to succeed. It could be just another of those “sounds big, means zilch” scoops that political editors come up with on a Sunday when there’s not much real news out there. Or, for all I know, it could be the beginning of end of Brexit.

Et Tu, Rod Liddle? Another Staunch Brexiteer Caves…

Audio version.

“No Deal” Brexit is the only Brexit worth having – because it’s the only Brexit for which people actually voted.

How stupid do you have to be not to realise this?

Sure, for months and months we’ve been deluged with Remainer propaganda in the largely pro-Remain media claiming there’ll be chaos and economic disaster if Britain “crashes out” of the European Union on World Trade Organisation (WTO) terms.

But most of us know that this is just Project Fear 2.0 spin designed to obscure the fact the most of the world trades with the EU on WTO terms. Do Israel, Singapore, India, Hong Kong and the U.S. really look like they are suffering as a result?

So what on earth provoked one of the UK media’s staunchest Brexiteers Rod Liddle to write this abject surrender monkey drivel in today’s Sun?

Twelve Debunked Climate Scares We Can Laugh at in 2019

Audio version.

2019 won’t be the year the climate change scare finally dies, unfortunately. But the people pushing it will look increasingly desperate, sad and piteously short of evidence to support their junk science theories.

Here, courtesy of the Global Warming Policy Forum, are the top twelve climate scares debunked in 2018. Share it with your alarmist friends to wish them a happy, sceptical New Year.

January 2018:  Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: Study

PARIS (AFP) – Earth’s surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday (Jan 17) which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions.

A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet’s temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature.

February:  ‘Sinking’ Pacific nation Tuvalu is actually getting bigger, new research reveals

The Pacific nation of Tuvalu — long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels — is actually growing in size, new research shows.

My Six-Point Plan for Saving the World in 2019…

Happy New Year everyone. And as – I think – Che Guevara once said, “Let’s hope it’s a good one. Without any tears…”
Here are some of things I’m hoping we’ll see more of in 2019. Unlikely, I know. But I think it’s important to start the year aiming high.

Democracy

As Churchill said, “it’s the worst form of Government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” But right now, across the world, a lot of angry voters have noticed that increasingly we’re all victims of a democratic deficit. In Britain, for example, we’ve all been taught in our schools that we live in arguably the world’s longest continuous democracy. But look at what happens when we put that impressive-sounding reputation to the test. In June 2016, 17.4 million of us – more than have ever voted for anything in British history – vote in a referendum to Leave the EU. And then what happens?
