“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
For most people, winning the presidential election would be enough—but not Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Now that Joe Biden has “won” the election, she wants him to act more like a dictator, turning left-wing pipe dreams like her Green New Deal into law with one stroke of the pen.

Instead, the organization says, Biden should cram through their left-wing agenda with a string of executive orders…and Biden’s advisers say he plans to do just that.
Biden has no national mandate. He won the presidency by hiding in his basement and relying on the media to ignore any story that made him look too weak, out-of-touch, or corrupt.
Now that it looks like he’ll take office next January, AOC and her leftist “Squad” are hell-bent to “push” Biden as far to the left as they can…with or without giving the American people a say in the matter.
The group, called New Consensus, was founded by Ocasio-Cortez’s former campaign manager and chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, and is run by the same people who lent her a hand in crafting the Green New Deal.
Since Republicans will likely control the Senate, depending on the outcome of two run-off elections in Georgia next month, the Democratic Party expects Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to slow the worst Democratic legislation or stop it in its tracks.
New Consensus wants Biden to ignore the voters and start writing new executive orders right and (mostly) left.

“New Consensus shows in its new memo that Biden can achieve most of his ‘Build Back Better’ agenda even without a cooperative Senate,” the group said in a press release announcing the document.
“We could not be happier for the nation that you have won election to the White House,” the seven-page memo, released on November 18, starts off.
The group says it offers its advice in the “spirit of both celebration and collaboration.” It wants Biden to collaborate with the far-Left—just not with the Republicans who run one whole branch of government or the American people who elected them.
The group advises Biden to enact the shell of the Green New Deal—AOC’s socialist program with an eye-popping $93 trillion price tag—through executive orders.
Their plan would have Biden hand massive power to the Federal Reserve, which would dole out taxpayers’ money to “foster, nurture, and scale-up” green industries like solar panels and wind turbines. Biden already did that during the Obama administration—and many of the recipients went bust, leaving taxpayers footing the bill.
If AOC’s gang gets its way, this time the spending will be much, much bigger.

New Consensus wants Biden to bring expensive government projects into “literally every Congressional district in the country.”
It also wants the government to create “digital taxpayer wallets,” where the government could see every financial transaction that you make.
It wants Biden to make all this happen on day one. While they say that Biden could introduce “desirable new bipartisan legislation,” he should only do so “as a matter of signaling.” It’s not meant to pass, and it probably won’t. Biden’s only real job as president is to put their executive orders on his desk and sign, sign, sign.
“The nation does not have the luxury of waiting for such perks” as “formal legislation” before working on these “most urgent and indeed ‘existentially’ compelling needs. What can legally be done must quickly be done.”
New Consensus sent its manifesto to Biden’s transition team, and Biden’s team has already said it’s listening.
One of his most important staffers has publicly admitted that Biden plans to use his pen and phone to back policies related to the Green New Deal, defunding the police, and gun control.

Biden’s national policy director during the 2020 campaign, Stef Feldman, let the cat out of the bag on a Zoom call at Georgetown University recently.
Feldman said that Biden already has plans to “make big, bold changes through executive action—not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”
“There’s really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action,” she added.
The Constitution was meant to make it impossible for one man, desperate to reshape his own country, to monkey with the system through royal proclamations. When Biden and AOC try their hand at it, Republicans have to be willing to go to the mat to stop them.
