Climate hysteria leads AOC to concoct Keystone XL oil leak from non-existent pipeline

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Newby New York Democrat representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, thinks the Keystone XL pipeline has had a major leak. But like hate crimes these days, the supply of oil-related disasters just doesn’t meet the demand, so she had to make one up.

I’ve been avoiding AOC related news, and besides, we have our own Canadian dollar store version in Catherine McKenna.

Our federal environment minister shares many of the same kooky ideas about ending our dependence on fossil fuels so I’ve had my fix of wacky green ideas.

But now AOC is getting her facts wrong and plain-old making stuff up about a pipeline that Alberta desperately needs: Keystone XL.

That means she has my attention.

Watch as I show you the question Congresswoman Occasio-Cortez asked the CEO of Wells Fargo about his responsibility for a five-thousand barrel oil-spill from a KXL leak in South Dakota back in 2017.

The problem? KXL isn’t even built yet. The builder, TransCanada, is currently mowing grass and clearing brush in the construction right of way.

She got the pipeline wrong. Keystone - not XL - had a 2017 spill that was cleaned up immediately after it happened. She was so sure of herself, but in the end, so wrong.

Keystone XL has become such a pipeline Boogeyman on the Left — especially amongst the celebrity Left in the United States — that the environmentalists have now concocted disasters that haven't happened.

Keystone XL is the Jason Voorhees of pipelines for the Left — a terrifying figment of their own irrational hysteria.

“Trudeau babbles but I don’t think he’s an idiot,”….. And that Ms. Stephenson “speaks volumes” about your “judgement”…

I don’t care. Either a loan or a tax break are corporate welfare. If you doubt how bad it is, go check out that video by the guy who claims civilization is going to end – he specifically cites it as evidence.

Verbal articulateness and intelligence aren’t always the same thing. Trudeau babbles but I don’t think he’s an idiot, while Doug Ford is smooth talking as hell and dumb as a post.

Andrew Stephenson WRONG!!! She mentioned the tax break as a loan. Try and keep up.

Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson pulls the predictable as usual. He drives a Chevette, but claims it is just like the Cadillac CTS, it’s common to mistake them since they are just GM. Ah, no Andrew, she genuinely screwed up the two because, in case you haven’t watched her interview, she is absolutely a stuttering child, worse than Trudeau, without rehearsing the catch phrases because she is too inept to even remember those, Her interview was absolutely priceless; like you, she opened her mouth and removed all doubt as to how utterly stupid she is.

“this AOC derangement is getting pretty thin on the ground.”??? Actually it just keeps getting better each and every day, and ever time AOC opens her horse’s mouth another blatant stupidity drops out…. "

All you’re doing is calling attention to her, and her policies are quite popular – apparently even 45% of Republicans support her tax proposal (contrary to what the mainstream GOP wants, although Trump himself has made it OK to hate on them) The right wing derangement does nothing for your side, because the people worried about her never would never vote for her anyway.

This is shaping up to be a major political factor that will shape the next Democrat presidency. Even the Rebel admits that in today’s latest AOC Derangement Syndrome Update.

Andrew Stephenson Trump has the US economy booming and AOC stupidly praised Amazon not building there as she was too ignorant to know the difference between a tax break and a loan”

The main reason for opposition to Amazon actually seemed to be overbuilding the infrastructure. Have you ever been to Toronto’s Liberty Village? Ten thousand people with only a single overcrowded streetcar line and one road for transportation. Same thing here.

She doesn’t’ distinguish flavours of corporate welfare. Neither do I. Amazon is not hurting for cash.

“A nonexistent pipeline leaks oil. Interesting.”

A pipeline named Keystone did, in fact, leak oil. Her mistake was confusing Keystone with Keystone XL, which is merely being used a distraction here.

“Ocasional Cortex” is the product of a school system that never challenges it’s students; that hands out ‘participation awards’; that fills their empty heads with the most unsupportable nonsense; that never requires them to support their opinions with evidence; that eschews ‘critical thinking’ and substitutes the mass opinions of ‘the village’; that they are the ‘best’ most important and should never be questioned because the questioners are the enemy.
So it is small wonder that with her ego appropriately stoked with unearned praise and assured of her own superiority, AOC spews whatever idiocy she can come up with. Because of this she is and will remain the Republicans most effective weapon against the democrats in 2020.

The Hoax continues & we pay the taxes while taking all the risks in maintaining our power grid throughout North America. The problem with the hoax begins with the antics of wingnut lefties who can only tell the truth when they can not think of a lie to fit their needs. Unfortunately for the sake of Truth, the left wing loons have an endless supply of lies for their followers to repeat so they can build up another tax grab. To Sheila’s point about answering the lies, I offer these quotes from two very astute men who nail her truth.

“The mad man shouted in the market place,
no one stopped to answer him. Thus, it was confirmed
that his thesis was incontrovertible.”
-Dag Hammarshkjold
Secretary General of the United Nations

“It is important to answer the mad man.
It is important because, left unanswered,
his lies and his malice can poison the climate.
They can do worse. They can make other men mad. Left
unanswered for long enough, they can nourish everything in
men and women that is hateful and destructive and murderous.

Our end is to ensure that every time the madman
shouts in the market place, he is answered."
-Roy McMurtry, Attorney General of Ontario

Andrew Stephenson when she stops being a hypocrite and stops saying stupid things then maybe she will get better responses. This AOC is a God Worship from the left is getting pretty thin on the ground.

First they came for the farting cows, and I said nothing. Then they came for the pigs, and I gave up bacon. Next they came for the chickens, and I was too poltroon to complain. Finally they came for me, and I became Soylent Green.

Green. New. Deal.

I say the IRS should investigate her. There are major election financing crimes, and she still owes almost $1900 in back taxes from her 2012 failed company. (I wonder if she was using a business model she learned in school – just as she figures that a tax break means giving public funds to whomever is getting the break.)

A nonexistent pipeline leaks oil. Interesting. Maybe she can foresee this in the future. After all, she has told us that in twelve years the planet is destroyed. Maybe that is why she isn’t worried about using Über, Lyft, taxis, or taking airplanes instead of walking, using the subway, or taking a train.

Some may excuse her making a mistake in the name of the pipeline. Sorry, she is supposed to know these things before she opens her always running mouth. Does she also call the oil sands “tar sands”? The tar sands are in California, not Alberta.

Wells Fargo being responsible for oil leaks? If a bank lends you money to buy a car and you crash it into another car, is that the bank’s responsibility? How vacant is her mind? Crazy eyes and the brains of the horse she looks like.

She is like a 16 year old girl: she knows all the answers but hasn’t heard the question. Its what she ‘feels". Its about (her) morals being more important than facts. Its about “the tippy-top”. Its about her being the boss. Its all about a politically inexperienced bar server who applied to a job posting for a candidate, getting the job, and then getting elected on hollow words. Its about Trudeau’s intellectual match wanting to create another Venezuelan socialist government.

Its about someone who thinks that if there isn’t enough funds for her “Green New Deal” the government can just print more money. Its about her not having a problem giving the US a $93 trillion bill for her ill-conceived plan, which will give every single home in the US $600,000 dollars in additional national debt.

Hmm… Maybe she is dumber than our dumb as a rock Trudeau. And some Dems have plans that when she becomes 35 running her for president. After all, she is the darling of the leftist press.

Before Occasional Cortex came along, I thought Climate Barbie was dim witted. Now I think Ocrasio has Barbie topped. On the bright side though, after politics, Junior and Ocrasio actually have the job experience to open a bar together. There is always demand for bouncers and bouncy bar tenders.

It was a very similarly named pipeline that leaked?

Clearly everything is fine. No problems here.

Seriously, this AOC derangement is getting pretty thin on the ground.

I bet AOC never heard about the massive emergency garbage cleanup around the Dakota Access sites. An emergency cleanup that was initiated by the pipeline’s proponents, after the protesters had grabbed their paycheques and fled the scene.

Inconvenient truth. Inconvenient truth everywhere you look…
