Like Obama lied about Obamacare, Ocasio-Cortez advisor caught LYING about her ‘Green New Deal’ plan

By Jon Dougherty

Socialists and Marxists have never been able to freely impose their economic and political agendas on free people by being honest with them, so they have to resort to lying about the true effects of their plans in order to fool people into accepting them.

That’s what Barack Obama and Democrats did in order to ‘sell’ the country on a plan for the government to take over one-sixth of the U.S. economy. Obamacare never delivered as promised; people lost insurance plans they liked, monthly premiums skyrocketed along with deductibles, healthcare costs haven’t gone down, E.R. visits never decreased, etc. The law never even achieved 100 percent “universal” coverage, either, which was the central element of the plan.

Now a new socialist/Marxist beloved by the “mainstream media” (MSM) has managed to get elected to Congress, and like Obama before her, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has attracted several Democrats to her cause: The “Green New Deal,” the latest Leftist plan to “transform” America into a country 180 degrees opposite of what we were founded to be.

Billed as an “ambitious” green energy project that conjures images of FDR’s “New Deal,” which was a non-free market, government-centric socialist economic “solution” to the Great Depression that subsequent academic studies found only prolonged America’s crisis and suffering, Ocasio-Cortez’s plan calls for, among other things, ending all air travel, replacing all fossil fuel and nuclear-powered energy plants and installing government jobs programs and benefits even to those who don’t want to work, and all within a decade.

Though there is a lot in the Green New Deal to hate and debate, Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson on Friday honed in on the part of the plan proposing to guarantee “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

As his guest, Tucker had Cornell University law professor Robert Hockett, an advisor to Ocasio-Cortez on to explain the nonsensical proposal.

When questioned about it, Hockett told Carlson such a provision does not actually appear in Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

Carlson asked, “Why would we ever pay people who are ‘unwilling to work?'”

“Uh…I…we never would, right? And AOC has never said anything like that. I think you’re referring to some sort of document that…some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating,” Hockett said.

Needless to say, the Left-wing media monitors were all over that segment, claiming that Hockett really took it to the ‘right-wing conservative host’ who was attempting to perpetuate a ‘lie’ about Ocasio-Cortez’s plan.

In particular, the segment generated much discussion on social media after a Media Matters researcher flagged the segment, claiming Hockett “debunk[s] all the conservative media lies” about the Green New Deal.

    Is that so?

    An archived version of the Green New Deal FAQ page — it was removed from Ocasio-Cortez’s website after generating widespread mockery and derision — show the Green New Deal does, in fact, guarantee “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

    You can see archived versions of the Green New Deal’s FAQ page for yourself here and here.

    In a subsequent email statement to The Daily Caller, Hockett had to finally admit that he was wrong, not Tucker.

    “It appears there was more than one document being discussed yesterday, only one of which I had heard about with any definiteness by last evening after a long day of media appearances – namely, the one referred to by the Congresswoman in her tweet. I regret that we seem unknowingly to have ended up speaking about different documents for a minute during our longer and otherwise ‘on-the-same-page’ conversation last night,” he said.

    Nevertheless, video of Hockett allegedly debunking Tucker continues to circulate on social media — meaning a very large number of Americans have successfully been duped and most likely intentionally so. Corrected versions of events rarely, if ever, receive the same attention as the first incorrect version of events, mostly because the Left’s gatekeepers don’t put nearly as much emphasis on fixing a lie as perpetuating one.

    Which brings us back to our original contention: As Obama did with Obamacare and like Hugo Chavez did in Venezuela, Ocasio-Cortez and her people are going to have to lie early and often about what her Green New Deal would actually do to the U.S. economy if they are ever going to get it passed.

    Because if they were honest about how it will destroy our standard of living by wrecking our economy for decades and turning back our technological achievements, most Americans would reject it out of hand.

    1. Occassional Cortex didnt lie, she was too stupid to know it wasn’t the truth .

      • After forty years of technological improvements, wind turbines and solar panels generate less than 1% of energy output, combined. AOC now claims that these renewable energy sources can generate 100% of our energy needs in ten years! Not likely.

      • Of course she is stupid, she us Alex Occasionally Firing Cortex

        If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.
        If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.
        If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it.

    3. And the Left tell us that Trump is the reason We the People view the MSM as our enemies. But we see them that way because they lie to perpetuate the subversive machinations of the Democrats. We aren’t blind. We can see it WITHOUT President Trump’s help!

    4. It’s what they always do. They start off by lying and cheating and then they confiscate and steal and finally they kill to remain in power. See Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. It’s called socialism a la Democratic Party.

    5. When Cortez was asked her opinion on Roe vs Wade, she replied that she thought that either one was a good way for illegals to cross the Rio Grand into our country.

      “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill

      “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.”
      Margaret Thatcher

      Churchill was wrong. The shortages and deficits will be shared by the workers and peasants. The apparatchiks will make a clean getaway.

      Socialism: When it reigns, it poors.

    7. Notice she needs to eliminate ALL JET aircrafts ? No such thing as bio-jet-A…. and even if there were, we don’t have that much extra food crops to make the fuel. Also:

      “settled science” is political, not science - They only cite the supply side, not the demand side of CO2 (Plant food), They only talk about the affects on temperature from CO2 raise, never the affects on agriculture (Every greenhouse operator knows increased CO2 = increased crop yield.)

      There are two very simple facts the Liberals will not acknowledge:

      #1 This Earth can only sustain 2 billion people without burning fossil fuel - John Deere does not run on batteries… so, what to do with 5 billion dead bodies?

      #2 The “deal” Trump wisely backed us out of would have taxed USA and sent this money to the #1 and #4 producers of CO2 - Chairman Mao’s China, and India…

    8. The AOC Green New Deal is so ridiculous that it’s authors—AOC and her Chief of Staff and Cornell University advisor—are now denying that they put it on their web page—It’s a socialist manifesto that is nonsense, but which Democrats are proudly endorsing because their Deep State puppet masters demand it. Ocasio-Cortez is praised by Dems as being their “rising star.” They are wrong. She is their setting sun. Dems are on the wrong side of everything. They support Open Borders, illegal immigration, socialism, the New World Order, killing babies, pedophilia, destroying America, and obeying Satan. I thank God every day for President Trump, for the Q Team, and for all the Patriots ready to take our country back. Good riddance, demonic Democrat Party and all your corruption and treachery. MAGA!

    9. It seems to me that all of these leftists liberals are the same as stinking muslims in that they have no problem lying. Muslims lie to the infidels while liberals lie to everyone!~

    10. She is moving our civilization back 75 years. Before WWII we had a great passenger rail system. To travel any distance you would naturally take a train unless you were wealthy then you might risk a plane ticket.
      After WWII the passenger train system was reduced by 84% by 1964. Most families could afford at least one car and plane fares dropped drastically. GM bought up financially sick streetcar companies then put a strategically placed buildings on the tracks making sure they would never be restarted.

      Lies are the foundation of the Democratic party. For them, it is an incurable disease.
