Saturday Silliness – Who should lead the climate revolution?

Al Gore has become less and less pertinent to “the cause”, mainly because his many predictions of climate gloom and doom, just haven’t panned out. For example, he famously predicted the Arctic sea ice would be gone by 2013, and of course it’s still there. So, who should lead now?

  1. I second the nomination of Rep Accusatory Occasional-Cortex. She can really get a message across!

    • “Accusatory Occasional-Cortex”
      is insulting, and not her real name.

      Be nice, like me !

      Her real name is:
      Alexandria Occasionally Coherent

      And don’t you forget it !

    • “She can really get a message across!” Because she’s always the headliner in the news. The media can’t resist. The masses can’t resist looking, just like any another car wreck, but without the “move along, nothing to see here” traffic cops. She is the new leader of the revolution, not just the climate revolution.

      She really is a leader, by the definition that she is out front fighting, unlike the politicians whose only accomplishment was to get elected. Not that she is the leader anybody should want.

      Who’s Al Gore? Is he one of those has-beens playing Vegas?

    • I am sorry, I have to criticize Josh, it does not really look like her without her mouth open and showing her teeth and gums like the jackass she is.

  2. Compliments to Josh for not portraying AOC with the “horse teeth” so many artists use. Not that I’m a fan — oh no — but this likeness totally removes that as a possible criticism.

    There’s enough to fault her for regardless.

    • No teeth showing only because her mouth is closed. That is an unrealistic portrait. Her mouth is ALWAYS open.

    • James, For a caricature to be recognizable as the subject be caricaturized it needs recognizable traits of the subject. Like it or not, her “horse teeth” and “crazy eyes” are her signature facial characteristics, hence why many artists emphasize those traits even if they do so to an extent greater than you’d like.

  3. AOC! Who else. Pretty but stupid. All attitude, no knowledge. She is easy to mock and the media cannot resist her.

    • …..And, don’t forget that she has a level of science, economic and money literacy that are all somewhere in the negative range. Most of what she knows about anything is not really true.

    • There simply is nobody else who can touch her on the outrageous scale. She’s young, energetic, well spoken when she wants to be, attractive … . You just could not ask for a better political zombie to head the charge in World War Z, where the “z” is short for “crrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-Z-y”.

      • Attractive? . . . obviously, it was never more true that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

        • I didn’t say “drop-dead gorgeous”, but, yeah, I’ll give her “attractive”. You’re probably used to seeing only her worst candid shots that the critical media use as visuals. Look at some other pics of her, when she’s not all wide-eyed and crazy looking. (^_^) I’m not saying that the crazy pics aren’t the best representation of her intellectual tone, but I won’t be a photo puppet of the critical media and deny her some semblance of a compliment in some semblance of her being.

        • Good Lord Boyet, my beauty, though but mean,
          Needs not the painted flourish of your praise:
          Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye,
          Not utter’d by base sale of chapmen’s tongues
          I am less proud to hear you tell my worth
          Than you much willing to be counted wise
          In spending your wit in the praise of mine.

          Princess of France. Love’s Labours Lost II, 1. Lines 497 – 503

      • attractive? she’s ok looking and by no means ugly, atleast when she isn’t in full on ocrazio ranting. but attractive is a bit higher bar than “ok looking/not ugly”. YMMV.

  4. Is AOC the pied piper of the brainwashed youth? Are the efforts to lower the voting age to 16 meant to swell their eco-fascist ranks? Who’s behind her sudden rise? This is an interesting insight…

    “In 2016, AOC was working as a bartender in New York City. She’d never dreamed of running for Congress. It was her brother who entered her into a contest being held by a group called the Justice Democrats. […] It was quite literally a casting call. Out of 10,000 entries, AOC won the role to play the Congresswoman from New York’s 14th District. They make no secret of this. […]

    From the Justice Democrats’ own promotional film, it appears that at least going in, AOC doesn’t plan on being the Bronx’ Representative for very long. As she says, in the promo, “If you’re a one-term Congressmember, so what? You can make ten years’ worth of change in one term.” Disposable candidates actually appears to be part of the Justice Democrats’ business model.

    The Justice Democrats have created a very data-driven, organized, Silicon Valley approach to politics and the Democrat Party. They have a business plan and a platform, which includes the Green New Deal. […] Their lack of qualifications notwithstanding, they want nothing less than to 1. replace the Democrat Party with the young Social Democrats who they control, 2. take control of Congress and then 3. take over the United States. It’s all about control.

    AOC’s Chief-of-Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, a 33-year-old self-made millionaire tech entrepreneur came under fire last week when it was discovered that he’d diverted over $1 million of AOC’s campaign funds into a series of shell corporations that appear to have been deliberately set up to obscure the destination of the funds, in a total contradiction to AOC’s pledges to increase transparency and to reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics. Both he and AOC have been named in a complaint filed with the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) to investigate their shady PACs. If convicted, they could technically do a few years in prison.

    It’s been determined that the mastermind behind Chakrabarti is Zack Exley, a Saul Alinksy-ite, Radical Leftist who’s been a political operative for some time, working on campaigns for John Kerry, the UK’s Labour Party, Bernie Sanders, as the Chief Revenue Officer of the Wikimedia Foundation and an associate of George Soros’ Open Borders Foundation. ”

    • Thanks for the ref. Linda but that particular website (i.e., forbiddenknowledgetv.com) seems a bit iffy looking at the articles listed on the right side of the page. I’d have to verify the information in that article on several other sources before assigning any credence.

  8. No, see, the way the next leader is chosen is to place several different objects in front of Greenie babies, three of which are Gore’s, including his Nobel, and if the child chooses all three of Gore’s objects, then he/she is their next leader. Simples.

  9. The US Military has sunk into a green swamp. A letter signed by leading retired flag grade officers and defense related analysts, as well as John Kerry and Chuck Hagel. Titled: “Letter to the President of the United States: 58 Senior Military and National Security Leaders Denounce NSC Climate Panel.”

    Beware the “leftie childish” label – this is serious. AOC might like to serve under Kerry or Hagel, maybe they are working on new mil attire?

  10. If it takes a “global village” to “save the planet”, then the savior/leader should be the village idiot.

  11. Oh, let’s not be so hard on the young star of the Democratic party. She’s spunky, outspoken, just-as-uninformed as her colleagues, not hard to look at, and is doing a stand-up job representing the heartfelt interests of the 18-to–36 year olds of the DNC. Who knows, probably of the Republic and Independents too.

    Blessedly, the more she says, the more she’s erecting a cardboard box around her stance, which everyone on the outside, necessarily older than her, sees for what it is. And the rhetoric is essentially harmless.

    The Democrats, if they are to have a fighting chance at pumping oxygenated blood into their voting constituency, must embrace the AOC message. Pump it up, bill it as “listening to the people”, and doing a way better job than the Republicans in practice. A lot of young folk will take it as gospel, and run with it.

    The Republicans on the other hand, if they want to make hay … ought to preëmpt the Dems in this embrace, and go for the gold: coming forth with an energy-competent plan to substantially increase the nation’s independence on fossil fuels, without seriously harming their Big Oil benefactors. It can only be done thru aggressive, progressive, reverse-subsidized taxation. But it definitely can be done.

    Would be quite the thing for the Republicans to use Tax-and-Burn methods to take on the Democrats. My virtual jaw is agape just considering how do-able it might be.

    Just saying,
    GoatGuy

  12. “coming forth with an energy-competent plan to substantially increase the nation’s independence on fossil fuels”

    Got any suggestions for that? The only ‘competent’ alternative to fossil fuels is nuclear power, and the youth have been brainwashed to avoid anything to do with nuclear and radiation. They would ban bananas if they knew…

  13. Climate revolution?
    Normally it means changing it completely, but most efforts goes to keep it as it is, meaning conservation, no change at all.
    If you want a climate revolution, then you should not do anything. According to climate scientits then we will se a revolution.
    Is that really what they mean?

  14. She and her fellow freshman Democrat Congressional Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are such a magnificent gift to Trump and the Republicans going into 2020.

    These 3 are committing the mortal sin in the Democratic Party of actually telling the public what they think.

    AOC with her new Green Deal, her significant part in sending away 14,000 well-paying AMazon jobs from Long Island City, her continual ignorant comments about economics.

    Tlaib and Omar both making anti-semitic remarks. Bashing American Jews support for Israel will drive more of the jewish vote away from Democrats.

    Now Ilhan Omar is even trash-talking Obama and his Hope and Change deception.

    It is wonderful to see these new up-coming Democrats driving their party into bouts of self-immolation.

    • If I didn’t have my tinfoil lined propeller beanie down snug, I might think ol’ Trump himself had secretly set up the Social Justice Democrats.

      They really are the gift that keeps on givin’.

      ^¿^

    • AOC with her new Green Deal, her significant part in sending away 14,000 well-paying AMazon jobs from Long Island City, her continual ignorant comments about economics.

      the total touted was 25,000 jobs. and that’s just from Amazon. That’s not counting the jobs that would have supported those workers (construction workers to build the HQ for one example). Not to mention, in the future, companies will think twice before making any deals to come to NY after when happened to Amazon. They lost way more than the 25,000 jobs Amazon was planning to bring to the area.

  15. “Al Gore has become less and less pertinent to “the cause”, mainly because his many predictions of climate gloom and doom, just haven’t panned out.”

    If that was true, wouldn’t the whole “Cause” be less pertinent? I mean, no prediction by anyone promoting global warming has come true!

  16. Soon AOC is not going to be a joke any longer, she is preaching philosophy that may turn out into something much worse.
    Today in London the Downing St. entrance was covered in red paint, how long before it is not paint but someone’s blood?

  17. She is doing a wonderful job of making people finally realise just what the Green movement really stands for. And her being of the Democrat Party is just the icing on the cake. Trumps patty ? will be very happy.

    MJE

  18. Y’all realise AOC is only playing a role, like an actor right?

    Her campaign manager and the justice democrats script everything she says down to the word, surely you are aware of this

    She was recruited via an ad that asked people to nominate people the justice democrats could “market” as progressives in their bid to eventually take over the democrat part and especially congress

    Surely you see this a mile off no?

    AOC’s brother responded to the ad, nominating her, she didn’t even apply, and Saikat Chakrabarti and the justice democrats completely build her into this fake person she is now

    She makes NO decisions, they make the decisions

    Why do you think she says the most stupid things? cos she’s off script on her own!

    Even a cursory glance at Saikat Chakrabarti and the justice democrats and what they were saying before AOC came along will prove it, because she is now repeating those exact same things

    Also, the justice democrats came up with the Green New Deal IN ONE WEEKEND!!!

    AOC was elected and those who voted for her have no idea that she is figuratively a PUPPET, she makes no decisions, none, nada nil.

    research it, and you will find I am 100% right here

    • If AOC is only playing a role, like an actor, then she is no different than the TV reality show actor currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?

      LOCK HIM UP

      • It really is sad how hatred of those who have succeeded in life rots the brains of those on the left.

        To a leftist, the greatest crime in the world is having more than the leftist does.

      • “Lock him up” for what, exactly?

        After more than 2 years of intensive investigations (in which the investigators broke the law to even get their investigations started… reference the FISA court rubber-stamping the investigation without vetting the fake information from Steele, information bought and paid for by Clinton and Obama, a set-up from the get-go), nothing actionable was found as regards the original charges of Trump attempting to affect the outcome of the election by colluding with Russia. All Mueller got Trump aides on are process charges, several of those are trumped up and won’t even stand a court challenge.

        However, there is evidence of collusion with Russia… by Hillary Clinton. Reference the uranium sale and the massive ‘donation’ to the Clinton’s foundation immediately after.

        Hell, McCabe just tacitly admitted on television that the entire thing was an attempted coup while admitting to several illegalities. He should be looking at some serious time.

        Stop listening to the people telling you to hate without reviewing why you’re being told to hate… they’re using your hatred for their own nefarious aims.

        Meanwhile, Trump has done a lot of good… the business climate is booming, people are better-employed and more well-paid, regulatory costs have decreased, businesses have flooded back into the US and illegal immigrants are soon to be walled out.

        But for people such as yourself, who wish to see the greatest experiment in capitalism and representative republicanism fail, all that good which has been done is bad.

        That says something about you… none of it good.

        • Very well put! Far too many people in America, on all sides and all colors, are filled with guilt about things they never had anything to do with and a simmering self-hatred which has been pushed on them by media and education professionals. All to push the leftist political agenda which can not and has never in history stood on it’s own. Jealousy, guilt, greed, self hatred, racism and a lack of ability to perform in the work and business environment are all being stoked by the political left to drive people apart. Balkanization. A term you can not explain to anyone under 50 because they don’t have the attention spam to understand it.

    • Mark, do you not see the inherent incompatibility between:

      Her campaign manager and the justice democrats script everything she says down to the word

      and

      Why do you think she says the most stupid things? cos she’s off script on her own!

      either *everything* she says is scripted down to the word or she often goes “off script” (in which case everything she says clearly isn’t scripted). You can’t have it both ways, it’s one or the other.

      She was recruited via an ad that asked people to nominate people…

      Link to this ad? or at least a screenshot (if the ad is not longer available online) or scanned image (if it was an offline ad). No link or image, than you need to put the tinfoil away.

      Even a cursory glance at Saikat Chakrabarti and the justice democrats and what they were saying before AOC came along will prove it, because she is now repeating those exact same things

      All that proves is that she believe/has been indoctrinated to believe it. Which makes her no different than most other socialist/communists who routinely spout from the writing of Marx.

      Also, the justice democrats came up with the Green New Deal IN ONE WEEKEND!!!

      And it shows.

      research it, and you will find I am 100% right here

      or, since you claim to have all the knowledge, you can share your links and research sources to save everyone some time. After all the burden of proof is on the one making the claim. You do have links and sources you can point to? right?

  19. “Saturday Silliness – Who should lead the climate revolution?”

    Well who’s doing the asking? The topic may not be as silly as it first seems, or as silly as it seemingly deserves to be.

    The disparate, and desperate, schemers involved in the climate caper all have their own personal motivations/justifications so a leader isn’t really what they are after, and is not really achievable, IMO. What they would all probably be happy with is just a prominent loudmouthed figurehead who keeps the it in the news even though they know sweet FA about the subject. (Or is that is what some people mean by a “leader”?)

    Whatever. As others have suggested, the Stochastic Vortex certainly has the ability to keep the media paying attention to her utterances. And she seems quite happy to take on the role of making outrageously ill-informed alarmist statements on the matter, which is the main qualification for being a climate spokesman. While I think most Democrats realize that it would be foolish to let her near any real power without an adult minder to keep an eye on her, I’d bet that at least one Presidential hopeful would take the risk of having her as a Vice-Presidential running mate. Rightly or wrongly, they’re looking at Trump’s election and thinking that maybe anything might now be possible. After all, someone also thought Dan Quayle could be VP and, with a few exceptions, they did manage to keep him quiet for the most part while he was in office.

  20. “mainly because his many predictions of climate gloom and doom, just haven’t panned out.”

    Misplaced comma.

  21. “Who should lead the climate revolution?”

    Margaret Thatcher started it, but she’s dead now, so I really don’t want her to lead it.
