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.
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.
