THREAD - Let’s destroy this radical claim.

There isn’t a single shred of evidence for this radical position, in fact the opposite is true. The costs of a Green New Deal will far outweigh the benefits, both to our environment and our economy. Here is why.
For our environment, energy demand will only increase in the coming years, and that demand will either be met by American energy or by countries like Russia or Iran.

Russian natural gas shipped abroad has 47% more emissions than American LNG.…
America has some of the highest energy production standards in the world. Russia? Not so much.

Just last year, Russian oil companies shipped massive supplies of toxic, intentionally tainted Russian oil abroad.

Is this who we want powering the world?
And for the economy, the Green New Deal would be a job killer, not creator. Especially in Texas.

In Houston alone, there are 125,000 employees working in oil and gas production, according to the Texas Oil & Gas Association.
When asked if oil and gas jobs should be sacrificed for unrealistic policies like the Green New Deal, Joe Biden said simply “yes.”

And remember: Bernie Sanders is a top advisor to Biden on energy policy.…
And what would be the cost to American taxpayers? Trillions.

According to estimates, the low end of the range is $52 trillion (over the next 10 years) and the high end is $93 trillion.…
Bottom line: the GND would force us to rely on foreign polluters to power the global economy. It would kill countless jobs.

Bernie wants you to believe that the only way to protect the environment is to destroy the economy. Don’t believe this false choice.

Joe Biden made it clear last night that he is the Democrat Party.

He acts like he’s the moderate who will control the radical left. But the reality is the exact opposite. It is the radical left who controls Joe Biden.

Just look at his own words from the debate.

The Democrat Party is now the party of abolishing the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court with liberal judges.

Biden wouldn’t even answer the question about whether he would support this policy.…
Democrats are now the party of the Green New Deal. Joe Biden said it is not his plan, but he defended it last night, saying it would “pay for itself.”

And if it isn’t his plan... why does he praise it on his website as a “crucial framework”...? Because AOC is his energy advisor.

Despicable, shameless left-wing activists and @wendydavis using the credibility of veterans to spread lies. Claiming @chiproytx doesn’t support Gold Star families is beyond the pale - he’s a cosponsor of the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act.

I rarely weigh in on this kind of thing but this infuriates me. Wendy Davis is using veterans and Gold Star families for her political advantage and I won’t stand for it.

If Wendy Davis doesn't denounce this, she has no business representing a single Texan.
Wendy Davis lied to this Gold Star family and manipulated them into doing an ad for her.

It is shameful.

Here is the truth:

Joe thinks you can’t tell the difference between absentee voting and universal mail-in voting.

Absentee voting is safe and secure. If you requested an absentee ballot, you should use it.

Universal mail-in voting is vulnerable to abuse and mistakes.

Here are examples. THREAD:
More than 1 in 5 mail-in ballots were rejected in New York City during a recent election - as many as 84,000 ballots were invalidated - delaying the results of the election for more than a month.…
As NPR reported in July, mail-in voting “is fraught with potential problems. Hundreds of thousands of ballots go uncounted each year because people make mistakes, such as forgetting to sign the form or sending it in too late”…

Remember when they told us that “defund the police” didn’t mean defund the police?

Remember when they said bail reform wouldn’t affect your safety?

This is today’s Democrat party. Do you trust them to protect your family? You shouldn’t, look at these stats (1/3):

Instead of attempting to spin the public into a hateful, frightened frenzy, let’s try reporting some facts with the correct context. Here’s what that might look like:

On March 3rd, the day after you claim Trump should have shut our economy down, this is how the WHO downplayed the virus:

“COVID-19 spreads less efficiently than flu, transmission does not appear to be driven by people who are not sick”…
Would the America public really have accepted millions of jobs destroyed for a virus that had infected just 102 people by March 2? Especially considering Italy would not lock down until March 10th, Spain on March 14th, and the UK on March 23?

A bit of context is in order here.

THREAD (1/4) Many of those laid off workers are involved in the oil and gas industry. They are still your fellow Americans, whether you like it or not.
(2/4) Foreign oil is produced with poorer labor protections, higher emissions, and generally worse standards than American oil. We set the standard in clean oil production.
(3/4) How do you think we will pay for education and healthcare in the country without oil and gas revenues? Many states rely on this revenue. Curious where you believe these funds will come from.
