AOC, Dems Incensed Over Biden’s “Middle Ground” On ‘Climate Change’ Comment

Joe Biden is certainly a leftist, but, he’s more old-school leftist, as opposed to today’s unhinged Modern Socialist leftist. His policies are, for the most part, not as extreme as the rest running for president, and he’s smart enough to push more middle of the road policies. So, we get something like this

Exclusive: Presidential hopeful Biden looking for ‘middle ground’ climate policy

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is crafting a climate change policy he hopes will appeal to both environmentalists and the blue-collar voters who elected Donald Trump, according to two sources, carving out a middle ground approach that will likely face heavy resistance from green activists.

The backbone of the policy will likely include the United States re-joining the Paris Climate Agreement and preserving U.S. regulations on emissions and vehicle fuel efficiency that Trump has sought to undo, according to one of the sources, Heather Zichal, who is part of a team advising Biden on climate change. She previously advised President Barack Obama.

The second source, a former energy department official advising Biden’s campaign who asked not to be named, said the policy could also be supportive of nuclear energy and fossil fuel options like natural gas and carbon capture technology, which limit emissions from coal plants and other industrial facilities.

Of course, ‘climate change’ is still a low hanging issue for most Americans, something they may profess to care about, but not enough to even pay more than $10 a month to deal with. Joe seems to be crafting a policy designed to make people feel good, but not destroy their cost of living. So, of of course

Blaming blue collar Americans? Huh what? The leadership part is amusing, since she refuses to demand a vote on her Green New Deal in the House, flipped a wig when Cocaine Mitch held a vote in the Senate (her proposal received exactly zero yes votes), and has even said that “it’s messaging focused and was never meant to be passed”. Where’s Squeeky’s leadership?

The crazy climate kids are not amused, either

A death sentence, you guys! But, they’re cool with fossil fuels if it gets them to places, such as spring break. And, going back to Naomi Klein, let’s not forget that she gives lots of talks and writes books and newspaper pieces about getting rid of capitalism. But, hey, this is all Science, not politics, right?

    “China is paying the tariffs to us!”

    — “Brokeahontas”

    “Brokeahontas” – latest trending nickname for the world’s worst businessman. ROTFLMAO!

    The Truth: “Trump raised tariffs from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and threatened to impose new 25 percent tariffs on an additional $325 billion of Chinese exports, all of which would be paid by American consumers through higher costs.”

    “Daddy’s Boy Don” received over $400 million from his daddy and still ran multiple businesses into the ground, even with the decades long trump family crime spree.

    Meanwhile, the NRA is investigating how Wayne LaPierre spent your membership fees… $270.000 to a Rodeo Drive clothier. An apartment rented for a summer intern. Over $200,000 in travel expenses. All funneled through a PR firm, Ackerman-McQueen ostensibly to hide the details of the spending. $24 million for legal fees the past year.

    Meanwhile, the unpatriotic, Deep State FBI is investigating Cindy Yang (she’s a member of Mar a Lago; founded the brothel where trump buddy, Bob Kraft was arrested) for illegally funneling money from China into the trump campaign. Numerous family members and friends “donated” $5400 each to the campaign.

    “The campaign finance probe comes after the FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office in Miami opened a probe into whether Chinese intelligence operatives were targeting Trump and Mar-a-Lago.”

    As always, he lies (I knew this would come).

    From AP

    customs duties total $41 billion so far this year, up 82% from a year ago, a big increase that reflects the higher tariffs the Trump administration has imposed on China and other countries. The duties on China increased again Friday with both sides unable to reach a deal to resolve a number of contentious trade issues.

    So far this year, receipts are up 1.8 percent to $2 trillion while spending is up 7.6% to $2.57 trillion.

    So we’re not paying it, they are.

    Blow “Brokeahontas” out your ass. Notice no sources. As always. Bill Maher, another jerk, is behind this one.

    This nonsense came from Salon, so you can guess how reliable it is. Read it, and you’ll see just another witch hunt.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      No, they’re not paying it, American consumers are. Nothing in your quote contradicts that, you serial misinformer.

      The importer pays the tariff (tax) to the US gov’t. The importer passes the cost to the consumer. China does not pay the tariff.

      You should never trust what Brokeahontas tells you. He’s ignorant, and a liar. A lot like his worshipers.

      • formwiz says:

        The Reds need our food to keep going. They pay the tariff. Tariffs aid domestic businesses, so their prices are better. So cheap Commie knockoffs don’t look so good.

        Also, if the tariff is jacking up prices, why are the markets doing so well? After a brief drop, they;re back on their way up again. The day after the tariff went up, the markets jumped better than 100 points.

        All the articles in Fake News say could hurt, not will. So far, the only real price increase is due to the mess in Venezuela’s oil production.

        I’m going to love it when we get the chance to shove Brokeahontas down your throat.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          The importers pay the tariff, not the exporters.

          Brokeahontas is lying to you, and you keep deepthroating his lies.

          You see how clever the nickname Brokeahontas is don’t you? trump has bankrupted several companies, lost over $2 billion (or claimed he did, so as to avoid paying taxes) and slurs Senator Warren as Pocahontas. And it rhymes with Pocahontas.

          And the bonus is that it seems to enrage you to the point of violent talk!

          • formwiz says:

            No, dear, the country does.

            You see how clever the nickname Brokeahontas is don’t you? trump has bankrupted several companies, lost over $2 billion

            Actually, it isn’t since Trump’s problems came in the ’89 wipeout. A lot of casinos went under.

            And the bonus is that it seems to enrage you to the point of violent talk!

            Violent? It’s as old an expression as there is in this country. Similar to eating crow.

            I guess we know who writes your drivel.

        Mr Dowd tells us:

        The importer pays the tariff (tax) to the US gov’t. The importer passes the cost to the consumer. China does not pay the tariff.

        That is absolutely correct. And now we know that Mr Dowd understands that the carbon taxes he advocates will all be paid by the consumer, not those wicked ol’ corporations!

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Not exactly. Just as cons expect the ultimate consumer of Chinese goods to switch over to US made tschotskes, Americans would find ways to economize on carbon based fuels. In addition, unlike the trump taxes on Chinese goods, the proposals for a carbon tax include rebates for those most impacted.

          Clearly he misunderstands the objective of a carbon tax. It’s not to change the behavior of corporations, but to change the behaviors of consumers. A pigovian tax such as a carbon tax balances the actual costs of fossil fuels with the actual costs of renewables.

          The objective of the tax on Chinese goods is to raise the price to consumers so that they would switch to buying US made goods.

          • formwiz says:

            Just as cons expect the ultimate consumer of Chinese goods to switch over to US made tschotskes, Americans would find ways to economize on carbon based fuels.

            People go for the better bargain. But, if gas is available at a reasonable price, why should they have to change anything?

            It’s not to change the behavior of corporations, but to change the behaviors of consumers.

            What, exactly, gives the government, or the environuts, the right to change this country’s behavior? Especially since it’s all built on lies.

            The objective of the tax on Chinese goods is to raise the price to consumers so that they would switch to buying US made goods.

            No, the object is to make the Reds stop flooding the country with cheap junk.

            Actually I wasn’t manly at all when I signed up with the Army. Like so many teens I was afraid. But then I didn’t criticize those like Senator McCain, as Trump did. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    As I said, snowflake. He should be taking Mommy out to lunch since he sponges off her.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      You’re saying Lil Bitch sponges off his mom? Meow, fighting like cats and puppies.

      Previously another commenter corrected your ridiculous claim that China is paying the tariffs Brokeahontas has placed on their exports.

      As for me, my mother passed away years ago, but thanks for the kind thoughts. And as a fiscal conservative I’ve lived my life in the black. I not only pay my own way but my taxes also pay for elderly Cons sponging of the gov’t. Are you on SS and Medicare? You’re welcome. Brokeahontas should maybe chip in.

      Meanwhile…

      U.S. Posts Largest-Ever Monthly Budget Deficit in February!

      So we supposedly have the greatest economy in the history of the world, yet we’re piling up record deficits and adding to our national debt.

      Brokeahontas is running America like he ran his businesses! Is that what Cons had in mind when they wanted a “businessman” president?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Brokeahontas wants to spend $2 trillion on infrastructure (more gov’t stimulus for the economy, but more debt) just to guarantee that the economy keeps percolating up to the election.
