WE HAVE PLENTY OF ENVIRONMENTAL INJUSTICE HERE IN THE CORRUPT ****HOLE OF AOC'S NEW YORK STATE THANKS TO DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST GOVERNOR YOUNG ANDY CUOMO, SO ANYTHING AOC AND KAMALA HARRIS CAN DO TO REIN IN HIS INJUSTICES WOULD BE APPRECIATED ...THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR APRIL 12, 2019 AT 9:54 AM
So, what are we really looking at here, people, with the “Green New Deal?”
How about fundraising based on false pretenses, which makes this “Green New Deal” one of the slickest SCAMS to come down the pike in a long, long time, made possible by Al Gore’s invention of the internet as a potent and powerful fund-raising tool, as we are seeing in the case of this “Green New Deal,” which is being used to raise internet funds on several different but inter-connected websites, such as the Sunrise Movement and the Justice Democrats, to wit:
OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE
A Platform Democrats Can Fight For
Opinion polls in the United States demonstrate that these policy positions are overwhelmingly popular.
Indeed, throughout the industrialized world these ideas are considered moderate.
This is a movement about freedom and justice.
And it’s a movement of, by, and for working people.
If the Democrats refuse to embrace this platform, they’ll continue to lose, either to Republicans or to us.
Transform Our Economy
We need a bold economic vision that will both reclaim lost capital and put money back in the pockets of hard-working Americans, and create millions of new jobs for those who have been left out of the workforce.
GREEN NEW DEAL
Scientists are sounding the alarm on climate change.
Communities are fighting back.
It’s time to drastically and immediately move away from fossil fuels, develop the technologies of the future, and create prosperity for all of us — not just those on top.
The Green New Deal is a mass mobilization to dramatically expand existing renewable power sources and deploy new production capacity with the goal of meeting 100% of national power demand through renewable sources.
The Green New Deal will also provide all members of our society, across all regions and all communities, the opportunity, training and education to be a full and equal participant in the transition, including through a job guarantee program to assure a living wage job to every person who wants one and ensure a ‘just transition’ for all workers, low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous communities, rural and urban communities and the front-line communities most affected by climate change, pollution and other environmental harm including by ensuring that local implementation of the transition is led from the community level and by prioritizing solutions that end the harms faced by front-line communities from climate change and environmental pollution.
SECURE A LIVING WAGE AND TIE IT TO INFLATION
ENACT A FEDERAL JOBS GUARANTEE
REBUILD OUR CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE
BLOCK BAD TRADE DEALS
END TAX DODGING AND LOOPHOLES
END UNNECESSARY WARS AND NATION BUILDING
And up at the top of the page is that box that says “DONATE.”
Except what you are donating for, as AOC herself informed us on the MSNBC Town Hall with Chris Hayes on 03/29/19, is nothing at all, to wit:
OCASIO-CORTEZ: And first all of we wave a magic wand and we passed the Green New Deal resolution tomorrow, what happens?
Nothing because it’s a resolution.
So why aren’t the people being asked to donate on these various websites touting and promoting the “Green New Deal” as the cure for everything that ails this country being told the truth that if the “Green New Deal” were to be passed this afternoon, nothing is going to happen and nothing is going to change?
And where is all that donation money going to?
And for what cause then?

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
"Harris announces 'landmark bill' with AOC to fight 'environmental injustice'"
30 JULY 2019
Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was teaming up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to make sure the Green New Deal would lift up low-income communities, people of color, and indigenous communities.
"Too many communities in America face systemic environmental injustice — that must end," the California Democrat said Monday on Twitter.
"Today, I'm partnering with @AOC to announce a landmark bill to ensure that a Green New Deal leaves no one behind and lifts up low-income communities, people of color, and indigenous communities."
The bill, titled "Climate Equity Act of 2019," would require congressional climate and environmental bills to have an equity score and require additional review for "climate equity" in federal regulations.
The bill would additionally require all major federal climate and environmental investments to consider front-line groups, including low-income communities, indigenous communities, and communities of color.
The bill would create an office of Climate and Environmental Justice Accountability to handle new responsibilities created by the bill.
Harris is currently polling in fourth place at 11% in the Democratic presidential primary according to RealClearPolitics.
Ocasio-Cortez originally introduced the Green New Deal in February.
The bill seeks to shift large amounts of the U.S. economy to be directed at fighting climate change.
The non-binding resolution includes calls for the U.S. to deal with "a large racial wealth divide."
The resolution also claimed environmental issues "disproportionately" affect indigenous communities.
Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti claimed earlier this month about the Green New Deal that "it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all ... we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing."
