AOC appeared pleased at the climate change orders

President Joe Biden implemented by executive action on Wednesday some of the climate change policies advocated in the Green New Deal after he said that he didn’t support it in 2019.

Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who was one of the main authors of the controversial plan, confirmed that she was pleased with the orders from Biden that were similar to the Green New Deal.

Biden sang a different tune during the first presidential debate against former President Donald Trump in September 2019 when he was backed into a corner and moderator Chris Wallace asked him directly if he supported the Green New Deal.

“No, I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden said at the time.

“Oh you don’t? Well, that’s a big statement! That means you just lost the radical left! Gone!” Trump replied.

“I support the Biden plan that I put forward. The Biden plan, which is different than what he calls the radical Green New Deal,” Biden said.

Part of Biden’s executive orders include:

  • Indefinitely halting all oil and gas leases on federal land
  • Goal of doubling offshore wind energy production by 2030
  • Elevating climate change to a national security priority
  • Creating a White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy

Ocasio-Cortez hinted, “It’s almost as if we helped shape the platform,” when a reporter noted the similarity between Biden’s actions and the Green New Deal.

She also took credit for a “Civilian Climate Corps,” an apprenticeship program for young people to train them for jobs in the climate energy industry.

In July 2019, the chief of staff for Ocasio-Cortez at the time admitted that the real intent of the Green New Deal was not to battle climate change, but to change the entire economy.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Saikat Chakrabarti asked. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

The Biden’s executive orders are expected to cost about $2 trillion, while some estimates placed the cost of the Green New Deal from Ocasio-Cortez at close to $100 trillion. The socialist democrat fumed at this estimate and said that it would only cost about $10 trillion, which is more than twice the size of the current federal budget.

‘To say there’s nothing to rework is not true’

A CNN report bashed the Trump administration for having a ‘nonexistent’ vaccine distribution plan, but the story imploded after Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked about it during a media briefing.

The CNN report by MJ Lee relied on quotes from anonymous sources in the Biden administration intending to paint the previous administration as completely incompetent.

“There is nothing for us to rework. We are going to have to build everything from scratch,” one anonymous source said to CNN.

The other source said the new administration would have to begin from “square one,” because there was no plan in place.

“Wow, just further affirmation of complete incompetence,” the second anonymous source told CNN.

‘There was, indeed, a plan from Trump’

The prized “scoop” was almost immediately undermined by other reporters, including Sam Stein of MSNBC and Politico.

“Biden folks are spinning here or trying to lower the bar strategically. There was, indeed, a plan from Trump. I listened in on govs calls on vaccine distribution,” tweeted Stein.

“The plan had obvious shortcomings. but to say there’s nothing to rework is not true,” he added.

Fauci, the head of the coronavirus task force under the Trump administration, was asked about the claim during a media briefing on Thursday and he denied the report.

“We’re certainly not starting from scratch, because there is activity going on in the distribution,” said Fauci, who will continue in the role under the Biden administration.

“I mean we’re coming in with fresh ideas, but also some ideas with … the previous administration. You can’t say it was absolutely not usable at all,” he added.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday that about 11.1 million Americans had received the first shot of the coronavirus vaccine, or about 3% of the total population.

Biden has set a goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of his administration.

Fauci also went on to say that he found it liberating to work under the Biden administration compared to the Trump administration.

Here are the comments from Fauci on Thursday:
