Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was left speechless.
The freshmen Democrat never expected one announcement to end up being the biggest defeat of her career.
And Ocasio-Cortez could not believe she was betrayed by the last person she ever expected.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed the Democrat Party far to the left on the issue of so-called “man made” global warming.
Like many millennials, Ocasio-Cortez believes so-called “man made” global warming is an existential threat to the planet.
Despite this “threat” being a complete hoax, Ocasio-Cortez tried to position herself as a leader on this issue.
She proposed a “Green New Deal” that would lead to eliminating air travel, cows, and buildings that were not “environmentally sustainable” in a complete Soviet-style takeover of the American economy.
Ocasio-Cortez even allowed for a guaranteed government income for Americans who refused to work.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership in the House responded by creating a new select committee to investigate solutions for so-called “global warming.”
Everyone expected Ocasio-Cortez to be a natural fit for the committee.
Some even thought she was the obvious choice to chair it.
But that was not the case.
Nancy Pelosi snubbed Ocasio-Cortez.
Not only did Pelosi not name Ocasio-Cortez as the chair of the committee, Pelosi left her off the panel’s roster entirely.
Ocasio-Cortez tried to put on a brave face and explain that she did not feel betrayed.
“Speaker Pelosi and I have spoken at length about climate. We share this priority. She did, in fact, invite me to be on this committee, so I don’t think that this is a snub,” Ocasio-Cortez began.
“I’m on four subcommittees. We’re doing [the Green New Deal],” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
“Additionally, the select committee is an investigatory body. … So they’re tackling the investigative piece and right now we’re tackling the legislative piece.”
This was not the only time Pelosi took a shot at Ocasio-Cortez and her radical global warming agenda.
Speaker Pelosi mocked Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” in an interview with Politico.
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi sneered. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
Critics believe Pelosi knows Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and global warming radicalism are political poison pills.
And while she wants to appear supportive of one of the most well-known and popular Democrats – at least in terms of the party base – Pelosi knows she needs to minimize Ocasio-Cortez’s ability to create mischief.
That is why Pelosi did not install Ocasio-Cortez on the global warming select committee.
And Pelosi made fun of Ocasio-Cortez’s signature piece of legislation to a news site like Politico so the political class would know her “Green New Deal” lunacy isn’t going anywhere.
Ocasio-Cortez may not have realized that Pelosi was playing her.
But when Ocasio-Cortez wises up to the ways of Washington, she could create a civil war that will tear the Democrat Party in two.
