All Senate Democrats abandoned Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ radical Green New Deal that was written by her team of ‘Justice Democrats’ advisors. The GND aims to shut down the economy, retrofit every building in America, and eliminate personal vehicles and air travel. Senator Kamala Harris, a 2020 presidential candidate, was a co-sponsor of the resolution last month, but refused to stand behind it in a vote. Senators Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, also running in the presidential race, backed away from it, too.

Not a single U.S. Senator – including the Democrats – voted in favor moving the ball forward freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Tuesday.

The first vote, called by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), would have opened up the floor for debate on a non-binding resolution. For that, the Senate only needs 60 votes. It received none.

“No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster,” according to Fox News. “Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting ‘no.’ Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted no.’”

Forty-two Senate Democrats voted “present.”

McConnell called the vote largely to see where Democrats stood on the measure. None are biting, especially not presidential candidates Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) or Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). The legislation represents a giant swerve to the left, even for the already-radicalized among the party.

Did George Floyd Die from Asphyxiation or Drug Overdose?

The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

Why Social Distancing Is Harmful to Children

July 3, 2020 Leigh Dundas 1

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.
