David Davenport: Doom and Gloom of the Green New Deal

It’s amazing that more than 70 House members and a dozen senators have already signed onto the Green New Deal. I say amazing for two reasons:

(1) It is full of doom and gloom, and
(2) will cost a staggering $90 billion and counting.

The original New Deal of the 1930s was a response to the tragedy of a worldwide Great Depression. With a strong economy and low unemployment, it is difficult to paint that kind of bleak picture today, but the recent House Resolution introducing the Green New Deal surely tries, describing economic stagnation for four decades; racial, economic and gender divisions; and a planet doomed by global warming.

Greg Thornbury: Nothing New Under The Sun

Greg Thornbury on WikiLeaks

When President Trump informed the media via Twitter that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, he became the first Commander in Chief not to do so in 36 years. This followed on the heels of Mr. Trump saying that the media was the enemy of the American people.

But as the book of Ecclesiastes reminds us, there’s nothing new under the sun. Who was the last president to ditch the Correspondents’ Dinner? That would be Democrat Jimmy Carter, who did not go to the event twice in his four years in the White House.

Nixon excused himself from the festivities too … twice, and called the press the enemy.

The press thinks they are entitled to access to the POTUS. The President thinks that access should mean more favorable coverage.

But it would certainly help if both sides worked toward giving the American people what they deserve: more reliable and more balanced news.
