Now that Joe Biden has shed his skin as the false “moderate” that he portrayed himself as during the campaign, he is getting lots of love from the most radically left voices in the Democratic party.
The most vocal of all progressives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was even impressed by Biden’s commitment to extremism that was expressed at the big two-day virtual Climate Summit last week.
Having long been lukewarm about Biden’s willingness to bring about the transformational changes necessary for the left’s utopian Green New Deal vision, AOC doled out high praise to the nation’s 46th president for his vow to reduce over half of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 regardless of how punishing that the measures are to Americans who still don’t understand the true nature of the new regime.
During a social media town hall, AOC said; “Yeah, I mean one thing that I will say is that I do think that the Biden administration and President Biden has definitely exceeded expectations that progressives had.”

According to AOC; “You know, I’ll be frank. I think a lot of us expected a much more conservative administration, and I think not just what has ultimately come out but the active invitation and willingness and collaboration with progressives in his first 100 days has been very impressive,” she said.
She added; “Biden announced that he plans to cut emissions by half by 2030, “I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that two years ago, it was almost unthinkable to think that Joe Biden would be making an announcement like that.”
In addition to Ocasio-Cortez, Biden got props from his vanquished primary opponent Bernie Sanders.
The avowed socialist appeared on CNN’s “Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer following the Climate Conference and gushed about the wonderful direction that Biden has taken with his pivot to the extreme left.
Sen. Bernie Sanders says Democrats may turn to reconciliation if the GOP doesn't cooperate on climate legislation.

According to Bernie; “Well, I think we’re off to a good start. We’re going to need a whole lot of discussion to fill in the details. But here is the bottom line: If we do not act extraordinarily aggressively, not only ourselves, but the entire world, what we are talking about is an unprecedented crisis facing the entire planet.” he said.
Sanders continued; “We’re talking about more drought, more floods, more extreme weather disturbances, more disease. And today, a major, major insurance company, Swiss Re, declared that there would be a 14% reduction in global output, economic output by 2050. that’s a $23 trillion reduction in global output as a result of climate change.” He said, “so, wolf, this is a moment in which we have got to act aggressively, lead the world, transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency. and when we do that, as the president indicated, we can create millions of good-paying jobs.”
It is now abundantly clear that Americans were hoodwinked by Biden and his surrogates who foisted the former veep off as a steady hand at the wheel, a moderate who could be trusted to steer the ship in the right direction but it was all a lie; just as many included former President Donald J. Trump pointed out, he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing and a Trojan horse for the most extreme elements of the left.
Bernie and AOC are certainly happy with the real Biden as are the globalists.
