Social Media is clearly censoring the wrong accounts.
While thousands of conservatives face shadownbans daily, liberals continue to make utter fools of themselves.
First, Elizabeth Warren tried to “drink a beer” and throw her hat in the presidential ring. Now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used Instagram Live to showcase her growing stupidity.
“There’s scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead young people to have a legitimate question: is it okay to still have children?”

The basic jest of her ramblings is this: between student loans and climate change, should people even have kids anymore?
Scare Tactics vs. Green New Deal
Obviously, Ocasio-Cortez isn’t ready to give up on her Green New Deal. Thus, she hopes she can employ scare tactics to convince people to chase her pipe dreams. But even Nancy Pelosi thinks this is a bad deal.
Of course, Pelosi served under the biggest scam artist in history. We all know Obama used the ruse of “green energy” to suck billions out of the economy. In fact, Obama spent nearly $40 billion a year on green energy projects. This is an amazing figure, particularly considering all America got for the money.
The Solar Letdown
For decades, green energy supporters touted solar energy as the answer. However, the solar energy industry cannot support itself without massive government subsidies. The average homeowner would need a $30,000 system just to save $2,000 a year. And who really knows what the savings are, given the Obama administration’s “fake data.”
Regardless, even using their numbers it would take 15 years just to recover one’s initial investment. Since the average home owner stays in their house less than 13 years, a buyer never recovers his or her investment.
But Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t care about Americans losing. Leftist policies aren’t really about saving taxpayers money.
The Institute for Energy Research reports:
President Obama subsidized solar and other renewable energy in the United States with taxpayer money to the tune of $39 billion per year on average for the past 5 years. These massive subsidies, however, have done little to increase the contribution of solar power to the electricity generation mix as solar is expected to produce just 0.6 percent of electricity generation this year.
The Numbers Speak for Themselves
With statistics like these, it’s no wonder most of the green energy companies funded by Obama went belly-up. Green energy could easily have been called ObamaFuel, reminiscent of the healthcare scheme that failed just as badly. How many of those ObamaCare co-ops were total flops?
Nearly 40 companies that took big government pay-outs are bankrupt or headed for bankruptcy.
Fox Nation compiled a list of the failing energy companies along with the amount of government funds at their disposal. Most of these companies had millions thrown at them:
- Evergreen Solar ($25 million),
- Schneider Electric ($86 million)
- Johnson Controls ($299 Million)
Other companies actually received billions of taxpayer funds.
- First Solar (1.46 billion)
- Sun Power (1.2 billion)
- And many others.
We are still totaling up the damage from the green energy debacle under Obama. But before we’re even out of the woods, another leftist wants to take his scams to the next level.
Under Ocasio-Cortez’ plan, we would completely turn away from fossil fuels. This requires retooling nearly 100% of our infrastructure. And for what benefit?
The Earth experienced Ice Ages and other drastic climate changes millions of years before we drove cars down the highway. And there’s still the issue of cow farts. According to Ocasio-Cortez, we need to eliminate those, as well.
So leftists think we need to get rid of our cars and factories and even our steak dinners.
For once, she might be on to something. Imagine if all the people who believe in the Green New Deal stopped reproducing!
