Nolte: Ocasio-Cortez Adviser Caught Lying to Tucker Carlson

Nolte: Ocasio-Cortez Adviser Caught Lying to Tucker Carlson

John Nolte 10 Feb 2019 Breitbart News

An adviser to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was caught lying to Tucker Carlson about the disastrous Green New Deal.

On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez adviser Robert Hockett appeared on Carlson’s Fox News show and falsely claimed that something that is in fact part of the Green New Deal [GND] is not; namely, the promise the GND would ensure “economic security” to those “unwilling to work” and is aimed at eliminating air travel.

Here is how it went down: . .

CARLSON: When do we ever pay people who are, quote, unwilling to work?

HOCKETT: We never would, right? And AOC [Ocasio-Cortez] has never said anything like that. I think you’re referring to some sort of document, I think some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating.

CARLSON : That was in the backgrounder from her office, is my understanding.

HOCKETT: No, no, she tweeted it out to laugh at it. If you look at her latest tweets, it seems that some Republicans have put it out there. I don’t know the details.

CARLSON: Thank you for correcting me.

To his credit, Carlson was sincere in admitting he made a mistake, but he did not make a mistake; Hockett was straight-up lying to him.

Here is a link to the original FAQ posted about the GND on Ocasio-Cortez’s House webpage. It was quickly taken down as the rollout began to resemble the Hindenburg crashing . . .

. . . . Here is what Ocasio-Cortez’s own FAQ says about eliminating “air travel” (and even “cows”). Does this sound as though anyone is at all interested in offering you optionality…?

The Green New Deal sets a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, at the end of this 10-year plan because we aren’t sure that we will be able to fully get rid of, for example, emissions from cows or air travel before then.


So, the Green New Deal is “not sure” it can “rid” the world of “cows” and “air travel” in ten short years — you know, it might take 11 or 12 years, . . . before the Great Leap Forward is achieved . . .

It guarantees… economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”


This also from the AOC website . . .


I heard the interview. The guy danced around a number of issues

Anyone linking to the text to the bill?

“The actual resolution that outlines the Green New Deal does not include the “unwilling to work” part, but the overview document, released by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s office, does include the “unwilling” language.”

Posted this two days ago.

I thought the Green Deal Resolution and fact sheet were taken off the internet pretty quick, within hours of being posted.

What are you talking about?

The “Green New Deal” is a set of proposals at this point. Not a “bill”.

Green New Deal (at least in AOC’s objectives) . . .

It guarantees… economic security to all who are . . . unwilling to work.”



St. Paul’s “Deal”. . . .

2nd THESSALONIANS 3:10-12 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: If any one will not work, let him not eat.
11 For we hear that some of you are living in idleness,
mere busybodies, not doing any work.
12 Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work in quietness and
to earn their own living.


Fine. :roll_eyes: Listed among Bills of the 116th Congress is House Resolution 109.
Here is the text. This would be a good thing to discuss

This would be a good thing to discuss

So go start a thread on whatever “resolution” you want.

You and I both know a “resolution” is not a “bill”.

So my question remains regarding your question.

Anyone linking to the text to the bill?

Are you talking about the House Resolution (when the article that I posted does not)?

Are you talking about some other “bill”?

Why did you ask about a “bill” here, when it is irrelevant to my original post?

I am talking about:


Then explain its relevance to the thread or go start a thread on the “resolution” which you wrongly asked about in context of a “bill”.

For readers of this thread. . .

Extensive documentation of Carlson’s interview here . . .


Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her team were caught making false statements about a document on the “Green New Deal” that they published on the congresswoman’s website . . .

AOC has been caught withdrawing some of the more outrageous claims in her resolution. But the internet is often forever thanks to archival capabilities. That’s all that is.


The political satirists are having a field day with this "Green New Deal”.

Here is Mark Dice on AOC and her vision of this “Green New Deal” (Dice already has three hundred and twenty eight thousand [basically a third of a million] views on YouTube) . . .

She’s Truly a Genius :laughing:

it relevance is that BILLS-116hres109ih.pdf is what has been brought forward to the House - whatever Carlson was trying to deflect to.

Not really. In her policy statement, she said “unwilling”. In the Bill, at the very end, it advocates providing economic security for all people in the U.S. without limitation. No difference other than the way it’s worded.

Not sure what you mean. Some of the idea that had been brought up, and that people seem to want to focus on, for whatever reason, did not make it into the Resolution.

That is not in the Resolution either.

True. Socialism always puts strict limits on everyone except the ruling class.

I’m not exactly a fan of just giving out welfare like candy to people who don’t want to work. She’s literally embodying the parodies that conservatives make of socialists and running with it
