Democrats Really, Really, Really Do Not Want To Vote On The Green New Deal

Many Senate Democrats have gone on the record in support of the Green New Disaster, er, Deal, especially those who are running for president. Some others have said they were not in favor of it, such as Dianne Feinstein. None of them want to actually go on the record in doing their actual job, namely, voting

Dead On Arrival: Democrats Won’t Back ‘Green New Deal’ In ‘Sham’ Vote

If Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) calls a vote on the “Green New Deal,” it looks likely that many — or even all — Senate Democrats would vote “present” to avoid a public intraparty fight, said activists, lawmakers and congressional aides.

The environmental group behind the climate resolution is not planning to punish Democratic lawmakers for doing so — a departure from the Sunrise Movement’s recent history of attacking both Democrats and Republicans who question the “Green New Deal,” a massive government-led jobs program.

“This vote is a sham,” said Evan Weber, co-founder and political director of the Sunrise Movement. “Mitch McConnell obviously doesn’t support [the “Green New Deal”] so he’s trying to put [the vote] forward as a political ploy.”

Because of that motivation, Weber said he would be fine with Senate Democrats simply voting “present” on the resolution — as most of them did in July 2017 when Senate Republicans tried to split the Democratic caucus by holding a vote on “Medicare for All,” a similar hot-button issue on the left.

“I think it’s perfectly reasonable and respectful for Senate Democrats to call it out for what it is, and if voting present is how they want to do that, by all means go for it,” Weber said.

Well, of course it’s a stunt, just like with the Medicare for All, and, heck, in the wayback one calling for pulling all troops out of Iraq due to Dems stated opposition. The GND isn’t even a bill, though: it’s a resolution, so, voting for it wouldn’t mean anything would be enacted. If Democrats believe in this stuff, why wouldn’t they vote yay or nay on it, rather than present? They really do not like to be called out for their bullshit.

    I really cant get over how anti-trump fox news has become. Its has slowly been overrun by liberals and now I would surmise that 80-90 percent of the network is run by liberals. The next step is to start hiring the Batshit crazy liberals.

    They are trying desperately to torpedo Trump even today.

    Anyone see what is wrong with these two headlines?

    ****With President Trump 8,000 miles away, his disgraced ex-confidante bids to bury him on the Hill****

    I woke up this morning to a startling headline on FOX NEWS that has since been totally removed and replaced with this ******Ex-CIA station chief: CIA gives Trump valuable insights into Kim and North Korea *****’

    Before the headline implied Kim was a raving lunatic and trump needed psycologists to understand the man….Now how the hell is KIM supposed to react to a headline like that and the implication Trump is coming to a summit meeting with the belief Kim is insane and deranged and headlines by Fox news says it so it must be true.

    The headline has since been REMOVED by Fox after Trump was Sabotaged by the leftist news outlet masquerading as a conservative outlet.

    Jenna BUSH….GWB Jrs. daughter takes over for Kathy lee on MSM networks and GWB is proud his daughter is now the mouthpiece for leftist progaganda.

    Anyone getting the idea what is going on here? ThIS….THIS right here is why the left is actively trying to DEPLATFORM the RIGHT on YOUTUBE, and the internet. Once they do that their will no longer be any opposition to their agenda.

    AS Still Alive Proclaims be afraid. Be very afraid at the fascist/communist left in full blown crazy mode with the aim of even outwardly proclaiming the need to pack the supreme court so they can overturn every remote decision they do not like.

    BE AFRAID AMERICA. We let silicon valley run the world and now they are running it including GOOGLE who is now in BED with COMMUNIST CHINA and FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM who is openly banning conservatives and now TWITTER CEO admits his corp has a liberal bias and that indeed conservatives have been banned for no reason.

    BE AFRAID America. Even if your a democrat BE AFRAID when your political opponents no longer can speak freely without the fear of reprisials. That is not America. That is the USSR, RUSSIA, NK, China and a host of other countries with authoritarian laws and policies.

      The funny part about Fox is that they have always been just a little less actively leftist than the other networks. But that earned them the reputation of being “conservative”.

      • david7134 says:

        Stopped with Fox some time ago. Mostly watch Fox Business as they are still conservative and intelligent. Do pick up some select shows like Carlson but people like Hannity are just blow hards and worthless.

        • Kye says:

          Like you david7134, I only watch Tucker on FOX any more. Now I’m a One America News guy. (That’s I especially like Liz Wheeler on at the same time as Hannity. She’s cute and very right.

    Mr. Cohen’s testimony on the Hill is old news. He says Trump is a racist, conman and a cheat. So who in all of America did not already know that. Trump orchestrated paying of a porn star. Big deal. Trump choreographed the WikiLeaks-Roger Stone-Assange kabuki dance. So what? He was informed of the Trump Tower meeting. He thought running for prez would help the brand and was actively pursuing deals in Russia while denying it. Trump was never under oath when he lied, Cohen was. Sucks to be the sucker.

    This show will sting Trump for a bit, knock 2-3 pts off his approval, but his base will dig in hard on defense. Mueller knows more about all this than even Cohen is letting on, though.

      Harvey has been let down by her homies.

      So she wants to talk about anything else.

      • david7134 says:

        Have you noticed that his hate has hit an all time high. I think he realized that Trump is the man for the next 6 years.

  3. Kye says:

    This whole Cohen testimony thing cracks me up. So here we have a disbarred lawyer who is going to prison for lying to Congress testifying before…….Congress. Are we supposed to believe him or indict him? Again. I know, THIS time he’s telling the truth! Honest!

    Just seeing a miscreant like Elijah Cummings in charge warms the cockles of my heart. America deserves better than these people. It may be time to dust off the guillotine.

    • david7134 says:

      My wife has a thing about Korea (loves the place) so she keeps up with their news. The Koreans are very put out with the Dems as they see their antics disrupting the peace negotiations. The Dems lost the Vietnam war for us, they really don’t care about anything but their power.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      You want to behead Representative Cummings? Or just Michael Cohen? How about Individual One?

      We can’t help but notice that tRumpublicans only remember Cohen lying to Congress and forget his other guilty pleas:

      …pleaded guilty on August 21, 2018, to eight counts of campaign finance violations (with Individual One), tax fraud, and bank fraud. Cohen said he violated campaign finance laws at the direction of Trump and “for the principal purpose of influencing” the 2016 presidential election…

      Whoever Individual One turns out to be might be in as much trouble as Cohen.

      Also: From 2017 to 2018, Cohen was deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. Good judge of character there, RNC.

        Little nignorant having a difficult time keeping his narrative straight.

      • david7134 says:

        And your point???? I guess you really want to bring Hillary and group to justice. How about all of Hillary’s people?? Or is it just the trash to Trump used that you hate? How many people do you hate Jeff?? Is it just confined to white people or do you worship brown people??

  4. Kye says:

    Sorry Elwood, but we all remember Cohen’s crimes not just lying but since he’s in front of Congress I would imagine that’s the most germane. When you say something really, truly stupid like “Good judge of character there, RNC” you show a level of stupitude most people even leftists don’t possess. You act like the DNC or for that matter Democrat voters or politicians were never guilty of a wrong decision or bad judgement. Do you really believe that, Elwood? or should you be sat in the corner and forced to write down all the assholes the Democrats have spawned from Ted “The Killer” Kennedy to Dyslexia Occasional-Cotex?

    Your side ain’t exactly lily white. (am I allowed to say that any more Elwood?)
