The Green Leap Forward

Many in The Movement think they’re working against The Establishment, but they are not. The Green New Deal has always been Hillary’s baby.

Climate change is a big deal, and I have no problem accepting that our country needs to clean up its act, or that our government needs to help us deal with its consequences and causes. But I am not convinced that the Green New Deal would be the best policy for this.

08 February 2020 Note: It’s funny how some want to dismiss this blog post as conspiracy theory. What I write is not “theory”. It is an actual plot to use climate crisis as an opportunity to overthrow our system of government (system change), complete with an actual plan for carrying it out, and people who are actually coordinating the effort. It is an actual conspiracy.

AOC’s Chief of Staff Admits the Green New Deal Is Not about Climate Change.

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) don’t even hide the fact their agenda is about system change, not climate change.

Meghan McCain confronts her, and AOC doesn’t deny that the Green New Deal would transform our country into a socialist one.

A recently released document shows Bernie Sanders’s team preparing dozens of potential executive orders. An executive order declaring a national emergency to enact the Green New Deal’s 10-year mobilization plan, included. Elizabeth Warren has also often expressed that she intends to circumvent congress and govern by executive order.

Yuri Mattsev: The Green New Deal is modelled after Stalin’s Constitution.

Have we learned nothing from the twentieth century? The Green New Deal sounds a lot like Mao’s Great Leap Forward… a five-year plan that forced all of China to work collectively to modernize industry throughout their entire nation. Mao promised the people, “Hard work for a few years was then to be followed by a thousand years of happiness.” What could go wrong? Quite a lot, actually.

Advocates for the Green New Deal like to say that this is something that we must do, or we will all die. They also say that it won’t be as bad as people think — FDR’s mass mobilization for World War II turned out just fine.

But FDR’s mass mobilization wasn’t a lot of fun. It was hard work. And it wasn’t launched on as grandiose a scale as the Green New Deal’s mobilization would be. Like Mao’s Great Leap Forward, the Green New Deal is more closely modelled after Stalin’s Five Year Plans, than FDR’s.

Sanders describes his plan, … as a ten-year, nationwide mobilization centered on equity and humanity” that would create 20 million new jobs.

Like Stalin’s Plan, the labor needed for the Green New Deal would require a massive increase in the workforce; and like Stalin’s Plan, this would be achieved by “an utterly ruthless use of the power of the state in the provision of work-slaves”. With the Green New Deal, at least 20 million of us would be called up for a total war effort against climate change through AmeriCorps… under the guise of a Federal Jobs Guarantee.

Tulsi Gabbard has cited its Federal Jobs Guarantee as one of the main reasons why she does not support the Green New Deal, and she is wise to have these concerns. Especially since AmeriCorps is run by the Clinton Global Initiative. The Green New Deal would provide the Clintons with a work force of at least 20 million people to help them further their Disaster-Capitalist Empire, fully funded by our tax dollars.

Most people don’t realize it but, the Green New Deal is actually Hillary’s baby, and it’s something the Center for American Progress has been brainstorming for her since at least 2009.

What’s more… Dr Naomi Wolf has warned us that the devil is in the details of Green New Deal Committee Rules, which would use National Emergency Powers to bypass congress to establish a Politburo-like managerial class run by the very people we’re supposed to be fighting against.

The Green New Deal pretends to empower the people, but it does the opposite. It gives the rich and powerful complete control over our country, with direct access to our treasury. It would turn most of us into their indentured servants — especially targeting our most vulnerable minority communities — while pretending to save us from the existential crisis of climate disaster.

Plus: The Green New Deal would establish Hillary Clinton as our unelected Shadow Queen. NO THANK YOU!

Tulsi Gabbard’s OFF Plan is the better way.

February, 2019: AOC claimed that, even though her Green New Deal Resolution is vague and doesn’t actually address climate issues, at least she’s trying. She also bragged that since *nobody* else is even trying, it makes *her* the boss.

But someone else actually had been trying, for at least two years: Tulsi Gabbard, when she introduced her Off Fossil Fuels Act. A *real* plan for transitioning America off fossil fuels, and which would ensure that our economy and livelihoods would survive the end of the fossil fuel era.

AOC totally knew about Tulsi’s OFF Act. It’s even mentioned in her “DRAFT TEXT FOR PROPOSED ADDENDUM TO HOUSE RULES FOR 116TH CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES”.

Unlike the Green New Deal, Tulsi’s OFF Act is an actionable plan based on science, and doesn’t try to sell us on ideology. It is also designed to work within the framework of our democracy… which is probably why AOC, Bernie, and other key players in The Movement like to pretend it doesn’t exist.

Tulsi Gabbard’s OFF Act is the best way to ensure clean air, clean water, clean energy, clean living, and to keep our hands clean of bloody oil… without enriching the already rich, and without giving more power to the already powerful. Combined with her healthcare plan, it would also knee-cap the #GreenLeapForward… which is one of the reasons why I fight so hard to get her in the White House.

The Progressive International: Lipstick on a Pig

I really wish that people would stop acting like Tulsi Gabbard resigned her DNC co-chair position for Bernie’s sake. She did not do it for him. She did it to protest nomination rigging, and she later joined Bernie’s campaign to bring issues of war and peace into the public debate.

Tulsi Gabbard gave Bernie Sanders an endorsement. He gave her a platform on war and peace.

At the time, Bernie’s foreign policy platform focused on one single issue: His 2002 vote against the Iraq AUMF. Back then, his apparent disinterest in militarism had many convinced that he would not pursue wars of intervention.

Since then, however, he has taken the time to articulate his vision… revealing that he really is no different than the others. Bernie’s Progressive Internationalism is a continuation of the same failed foreign policy that has kept us in a perpetual state of war. Bernie now stands with the War Party that Tulsi Gabbard is fighting against. They are not on the same team.

A new authoritarian axis demands an international progressive front

Even more shocking: Bernie’s longstanding deal with the War Party exposed. #BomberBernie

The candidates like to pretend that Progressive Internationalism is a new thing. But it really isn’t. It is the Clinton Doctrine…

Progressive Internationalism: A Democratic National Security Strategy

Tulsi is the only one offering us a new foreign policy. Everyone else, pushing this really-not-really-new idea, is tricking us into agreeing to more perpetual wars of intervention… under the guise of humanitarianism.

“Humanitarian” war is a lie.

Lipstick on a Pig…

Neoconservatism is making a comeback — and not among the Republicans who have made it famous but in the Democratic Party.

Beware the Global Do-Gooder Democrats.

By the way: Disaster capitalism is big money. And the Clinton Global Initiative is its most prominent broker. Talk about huge conflicts of interest.

Making a Killing Out of Catastrophe

TulsiCare Saves Lives, and Our Freedoms.

Both presidents Obama and Trump promised us Universal Healthcare, but failed to deliver. Universal Healthcare is once again on the table, and Tulsi Gabbard’s plan is superior to all the rest… not just because she is modeling hers after existing universal healthcare programs that have proven to work in other liberal democracies around the world (like Australia and the UK), but also because she actually has a plan to pay for it.

When defending Tulsi Gabbard’s Single-Payer-Plus Universal Healthcare Plan (TulsiCare), there are really only three things that we need to keep in mind. The rest of it is just noise and irrelevant nonsense that we shouldn’t bother with.

And for the sake of argument, let’s pretend that what Medicare-for-All advocates are saying about dead bodies is true. Let’s pretend that their numbers are accurate, and that there are tens of thousands of people who die every year because they don’t have health insurance.

1. TulsiCare expands Medicare coverage to every single American.

Like Bernie and Warren’s Medicare-for-All, TulsiCare expands government healthcare coverage to every single American. Nobody gets left behind. The plan Bernie and Warren are advocating for wouldn’t save any more lives than Tulsi’s would. TulsiCare saves lives, too.

2. TulsiCare is constitutional.

Tulsi’s plan has a better chance of actually becoming a reality, because it is constitutional. Bernie and Warren’s Medicare-for-All may not be. Their plan calls for abolishing private health insurance, in whole or in part. And the only way they can make that happen, is if they alter the constitution or get a Supreme Court ruling that would redefine the constitution in ways that remove protections for private property and free enterprise. The latter is not something I would like to see happen, and I think many would agree.

3. Why should we give up some of our freedoms, when we don’t have to?

Neo-progressives have created a false dilemma, leading many to believe that we must give up some of our freedoms in order to save lives. They’ve done so, because healthcare is not their primary goal. The constitutional changes required to abolish private health insurance would also empower the government to seize the means of production. The debate about private health insurance isn’t really about healthcare — it is a sneaky referendum for abolishing free-market capitalism.

TulsiCare saves lives, without our having to sacrifice any of our constitutional freedoms. Some may not appreciate our freedoms, but I do. And there is nothing anyone can say to change my mind. I’m voting for Tulsi… because America is a free country, and I trust President Gabbard to keep it that way.

A President We Can Trust.

Help Wanted: A president we can trust to protect the constitution; strategically command our military and ensure our national defense; diplomatically conduct foreign relations; responsibly manage the executive branch (including setting budgets); faithfully execute our national laws.

Major Gabbard is in her 18th year of service in our National Guard. As a commanding officer in our US military, and as a member of high level USIC congressional committees, she is the most highly DOD vetted, and holds the highest security clearance of all candidates for POTUS.

Leaked Trump admin docs  also reveal that she has no unscrupulous financial dealings, no compromising debts, no shady associations, no conflicts of interests, no revolving doors, and is not involved in corrupt activities. Tulsi is an honest politician.

Of all the Tulsi scandals floating around, the only one that Trump admin found to be true, was about her ditching a VA meeting that she was invited to attend, to go surfing.

My own research turned up the same. I’ve investigated every scandal published about her and found them all to be either distorted versions of truth, baseless, or patently false… except for the surfing incident. Here’s what she missed that VA meeting for:

Pundits and Trolls who redbait Tulsi with baseless rumors don’t give a damn about our national security. If they did, they wouldn’t be trying so hard to turn American voters against the only candidate who is fit to serve as our Commander in Chief.

How did a patriot with such impeccable national security credentials end up demonized as a traitor?
