Retire Quid Pro Joe Biden
Despite declaring air travel a threat to the planet, former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has spent nearly a million dollars so far on private jets.
“Biden’s campaign dropped $924,000 on to Advanced Aviation — a private jet charter company,” POLITICO reports, noting, “Biden’s campaign told POLITICO that the payments also included carbon offset purchases for flights.”
The companies that make easy cash selling “carbon offsets” are largely owned by Democrat donors, making the scheme an easy way to reward political supporters.
Biden has endorsed the “Green New Deal” narrative hatched by socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face,” his campaign website’s “Climate” page reads.
“It powerfully captures two basic truths, which are at the core of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected.”
The text of Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” admitted the plan was part of an effort to eventually get rid of “air travel.”
Ocasio-Cortez heavily hyped the plan, until it was criticized for its stated goals of eliminating airplanes and even cattle.
When confronted with that text, Ocasio-Cortez bizarrely claimed she never said that. When shown her own words, she doubled down and claimed the document she previously promoted was not hers and was “leaked” onto her own website.
None of that seems to have dissuaded Biden from embracing both her anti-airplane socialism and pro-airplane hypocrisy.
