Democrats´ ´Green New Deal´ Is
Really A Call For Enviro-Socialism

Investors Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/8/2019 11:14:54 AM

The far-left Democrats finally unveiled their plan for their "Green New Deal." It´s a shocking document, essentially a call for enviro-socialism in America. It´s no doubt prompting many across the nation to wonder: Has this once-respectable political party of the working class gone collectively mad?It sure seems that way. Reading the Green New Deal (GND) plan, put out Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, one is tempted to think it´s not real, just a joke from the satirical "The Onion." The individual planks in the plan, individually and collectively, sound like the rantings

At least we now know their true agenda. Back to the stone age. Diapers for farm animals and high-speed bullet trains under the ocean, as well as an end to the airline industry and shutting down all oil and natural gas production worldwide. Free money for everyone earth, and taxes taxes taxes on everything and anything. The Green New Utopia. Another grand social/economic experiment doomed to fail. But hey give it a shot. It almost worked in Russia, Cuba and Venezuela.

The whole proposal is total nonsense.
We lack the ability to capture energy (wind, solar, tide, geothermal). We just don´t have the ability to transform very much of it to a useful form. We lack the ability to store the energy until it is needed.
There is sufficient energy available. Solar energy is only available when 1) the Sun is up; 2) there are no clouds; 3) the solar panels are not covered with snow; 4) the temperature is high enough. Wind power is only available when the wind blows, and the wind does not blow on a regular schedule.
The technology needed to capture sunlight is expensive and polluting: it is not just a glass plate, but a plate coated in a specific way with a specific blend of elements. Making such plates is a technically sophisticated process. And when left in the sunlight (duh!) they age rapidly and the output falls off. My little solar powered driveway light was dead in five years.
The technology needed to capture wind power requires magnets which produce enormously powerful fields; these are usually made with rare earths. And the wind turbines fail disastrously when the weather is too cold. And they break down quite quickly. And they kill birds and bats.
If you focus on the actual (not theoretical) output of "green" energy, you soon learn that the U S would have to shrink to perhaps 1/10 of its current population, and return to subsistence living (no computers, radios, televisions, electric lights, powered farm equipment, and so on).
Is that really what we want?

Reminds of the old USSR communist plans.. ten-year-plan, (not working) seven-year plan (not working), five-year plan (not working, seven-year-plan (not working)... just give us more time, we will get it right. Never did.
But where people had their OWN plots of land, success for that family. They could eat.

Green New Deal is just a buzz word to get the United States to pay a debt it does NOT owe. We didn´t break it and we can´t fix it.

Ms. Occasional-cortex thinks we can finance this incredibly massive project by just "printing more money".

I would encourage her to read up on the history of numerous countries in recent years that fell for this method of financing things, and how the ensuing hyper-inflation drove their economies to ruin.

Not that it would stop her. The one thing about our home grown socialists is that they won´t admit that their theories are flawed, they just think "this time" they will implement things "correctly" and everything will work.

The GND is nothing but a project for population control. By not having transportation, you won´t have food, medical access, a job, school for your children (if they are allowed to be born). In essence, you will be totally dependent on the government.

#6, bingo! The left would like all the peasants concentrated in large cities—easier to control. Then, those people wouldn´t be able to go very far—electric vehicles don´t go across the country without recharging. Where are all those recharging stations? Not in "flyover country." Speaking of flying—does anyone believe that the private jets (think of the Bilderburg conference) will be grounded? No. I´d bet that there would be carbon exemptions for the "elite"—read that to mean politicians and those at her "tippy-top" of the wealth scale The proposals from Occasional-cortex are being fed to her by another New York entity. Any guesses?

#6 got it. Agenda 21. Check it out. Get rid of suburbs. Reclaim the land. Put people in high rise apartments. Bikes or government controlled transportation. Bike lanes have already been install d in cities.
All about control. And those doing the control have freedom to do what they want to do

At the feverish height of its madness Mao´s Great Leap Forward called for twenty years´ progress in a single day! These people are not too far behind. The key here is to stick it to the enabling Democrats like Velcro. Denying them any opportunity to shake it off as they approach 2020. Luckily AOC is doing just that.

It is just another socialist tool to gain power not only in the USA but through the planet. It´s propaganda has been spread around the planet for years and saddly has been believed and its threats to individual lives & liberties are already well under way through the socialist pols´ unscrupulous policies. It doesn´t have to be this way.

Will this century have the task of defeating the tyranny of socialism yet again as did the last?!

Why does the conservative media twist itself into pretzels to avoid calling communism by its rightful name? Socialism implemented outside of economic merit, using government coercion is communism. Those forcing it are communists. Our constitution is predicated on political and economic tenets anathema to communism.

As the perpetrators of one of the most shameful scandals in American political history begin slowly to retreat, we are left to ponder one overarching question: What now?The tale we’ve been told for more than two years—that Donald Trump’s campaign team, possibly even the candidate himself, colluded with the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election—has been exposed as a lie. Various investigations into this alleged conspiracy are coming up empty and the accomplices are trying to change the subject.

In pushing his new book, former FBI acting Director Andrew McCabe dropped a bombshell on CBS News. The Justice Department held meetings to consider removing President Trump from office under the 25th Amendment, after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey for lying. If that doesn´t convince you there´s a Deep State, perhaps nothing will.We have maintained since early 2017 (see here, here, here, here, and here) that the supposed "Russia-Trump collusion" was in fact engineered by the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton campaign working with Deep State officials and bureaucrats who hoped for advancement

NBC News proudly notes that “Meet the Press” is the longest-running program on network television. But it’s unlikely anyone at the network will be looking back with pride on this week’s show. Almost two full years after Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) told NBC he had seen “more than circumstantial evidence” that associates of Donald Trump had colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election, the network not only welcomed him back without demanding that he finally produce the evidence to support his claim. NBC gave him a platform to make new allegations.

Kirsten Gillibrand confronted a piece of fried chicken in South Carolina over the weekend. She began to eat it with a fork, realized that others around her were using their hands, asked if she should do likewise and ditched the utensils. Reading the reports of this, you got the sense that she would have grabbed that chicken with her pinkie toes if she’d been told to; she would have sucked it through a very large straw if those were the cues. Anything to conform. Anything to please.

Virginia´s Del. Kathy Tran´s and Governor Ralph Northam´s open and public admission that their bill, H.B. 2491, allowed for the murder of a baby up until the time of birth and afterward was never supposed to happen. Tran´s and Northam´s partial-birth abortion-funders, Planned Parenthood and EMILY´s List, have always encouraged their candidates in Southern states to stay mum on abortion until they get into office. For example, in the run-up to the 2018 midterms, in blue state Virginia, where there are still plenty of conservative voters and where congressional races were tight, Democratic candidates focused on health care, fair wages

If you expected any diminution of media malpractice following the recent spate of fake news scandals, you were mistaken. Less than a month after wrecking what remained of their credibility by parroting a piece of fiction from BuzzFeed about a former Trump lawyer, and compounding that offense by running a fake story about a group of Catholic high school students, they have struck again. This time the target is Candace Owens, the young black conservative who has urged African-Americans to stop voting Democrat. Over the weekend, the media ran with a BuzzFeed hit piece depicting Owens as a Nazi apologist.

Politicians in blackface? For Democrats,

America has been told, relentlessly, that the nation became officially and irrevocably unhinged in November 2016. That’s when a vulgar reality TV star flipped off the calcified Washington establishment, became president and triggered much hysterical weeping and teeth-gnashing among pundits and other palace guardians who play journalists on TV.But as we lurch toward the 2020 presidential campaign, what of the Democrats? Is the party of the angry American left —moving ever leftward and angrier by the minute — any more stable than Republicans of two years ago?

Elizabeth Warren’s whole embarrassingly improbable account of her claims to Native American ancestry has just fallen completely apart. It’s now indisputable that she’s been lying all along.The Washington Post has uncovered her 1986 Texas State Bar registration card, which Warren personally filled out and signed, where she listed her race as “American Indian.” And, she now admits, there may be other such documents out there. Funny: Back in 2012, when news first hit that Warren had been recorded as an American Indian in various faculty directories, she insisted she was unaware of the listing and hadn’t asked for it.

Gov. Ralph Northam (D) can no longer effectively serve the people of Virginia who elected him. His shifting and credulity-shredding explanations for the racist photograph on his medical school yearbook page, and the silence into which he then succumbed for days — after initially promising to do “the hard work” of atonement and apology to restore his standing with Virginians — is simply too much. His decade-long record in public office is admirable; it is equally true that his governorship has been irredeemably wrecked by the self-inflicted, racially callous and clueless mess he has made in recent days.

There were laughter, tears, raucous cheers and awkward silences. But more than anything else, it was a punch in the gut that President Trump delivered Tuesday night. Time after time, on issue after issue, he laid down a marker about the remaining two years of his term — and the outlines of his re-election campaign. Speeches that are too long — as this one was — often smother their key points in windy verbiage. But there was no mistaking Trump’s meaning or his intent to seek a second term on the platform of a strong economy, strong defense and secure

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department
