High Flying John Kerry Praises AOC Over Green New Deal Or Something

John Kerry, who is really proud of flying all over the world on fossil fueled airplanes as Sec of State, squee’d a bit, but, he forgot one really, really important point

John Kerry Praises Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Leadership’ with Green New Deal

Former Secretary of State John Kerry testified before the House Oversight Committee Tuesday, claiming freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has demonstrated more leadership on combating global warming than President Donald Trump “has in his lifetime.”

REP. JAMES COMER (R-KY): Secretary Kerry, my question to you is printing a lot of new money and opening a bunch of new public banks is a real way to pay for this Green New Deal project proposal?

JOHN KERRY: Well, let me begin by saying, Congressman, there are a lot of different proposals about how to proceed. I don’t know that any of them are coming from your party or your side of the aisle. Do you have a plan to deal with climate change? I think you said you’re not sure of the science. But my focus is on how we’re going to move forward and we all have some differences about one piece of legislation or another, but in proposing in what she has proposed together with Senator Markey, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has, in fact, offered more leadership in one day or in one week than President Trump has in his lifetime on this subject.

So, we’re talking about it, and my question is where is your proposal? Did you have any hearings on it in the last few years? Mostly on Benghazi, if I can recall, when I was up here. So, I think what we ought to do is stop the politics and get down to really serving the people of West Virginia and Kentucky.

What’s missing is that AOC has never demanded a vote in the House on the GND. Nor even just a floor debate. If the resolution is so darned “leadership”, then where are the calls for a vote? Further, she was mad that the Senate voted on the GND, a vote where almost all Democrats voted present. So much leadership that AOC didn’t seem to understand that they weren’t voting on “her” resolution as submitted to the House, but the one submitted by Senator Ed Markey (D) in the Senate.

Kerry is cute, though, with his “where is your proposal” schtick. Why would anyone submit anything for a fake science issue that’s really all about hardcore Modern Socialist politics?

But, in fact, Warmist Republican Matt Gaetz has released a legislative plan, which highlights the use of alternatives and, especially, nuclear power

U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) announced, at a press conference on Capitol Hill earlier today, the introduction of the “Green Real Deal,” a plan to address climate change by harnessing the power of free markets, embracing technological innovation and entrepreneurship, and cutting excessive governmental red tape. Congressman Gaetz’s “Green Real Deal” is the preeminent conservative response to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (NY-14) “Green New Deal” introduced earlier this year.

Rep. Gaetz’s “Green Real Deal” recognizes that a national commitment to innovation, competitive markets, and the deployment of advanced energy technologies will help the United States as the global leader in clean energy. The Green Real Deal calls for increased investment in clean energy technology and sources, like solar and nuclear power, while improving transparency and accountability for the benefit of customers, investors, and shareholders alike. Pointing to the unprecedented demand for job-creating, American-made clean energy, as well as the need to empower individuals and businesses to come together, the Green Real Deal harnesses the power of the free market to create millions of U.S. energy jobs and secure the nation’s position as a global environmental leader.

He’s doing the right thing for the wrong reason, namely, anthropogenic climate change. But, it is a decent plan, meant to limit the input and control by and of the federal government. All the taxes and fees that Warmists usually love are missing (Gaetz has never supported a carbon tax, cap and trade, etc.). All the big government dominance and decrees in controlling our lives are gone. Kerry wanted a plan, here’s one.

    Notice that Kerry evaded answering Rep. Comer’s reasonable question before “filibustering” about “your side” and Chiquita Khrushzchev
    LOL. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    “John Kerry, who is really proud of flying all over the world on fossil fueled airplanes as Sec of State”

    Making s#it up is a time-worn tactic of the extremist far right. Porter Good is doing the only thing he know how to do.

    “Why would anyone submit anything for a fake science issue that’s really all about hardcore Modern Socialist politics?”

    And Porter Good makes s#it up again.

    He’s really proud of his made-up s#it.

    Why does anyone care what Kerry says? He is not a public official.

      Correct, old horse face has been put out to pasture. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

        I didn’t care what that left wing hypocrite said when he was a public official so I certainly don’t give a rat’s azz now. Anything that old Soviet says is garbage.
