So, what are we really looking at here, people, with the “Green New Deal?”

How about fundraising based on false pretenses, which makes this “Green New Deal” one of the slickest SCAMS to come down the pike in a long, long time, made possible by Al Gore’s invention of the internet as a potent and powerful fund-raising tool, as we are seeing in the case of this “Green New Deal,” which is being used to raise internet funds on several different but inter-connected websites, such as the Sunrise Movement and the Justice Democrats, to wit:

OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE

A Platform Democrats Can Fight For


Opinion polls in the United States demonstrate that these policy positions are overwhelmingly popular.

Indeed, throughout the industrialized world these ideas are considered moderate.

This is a movement about freedom and justice.

And it’s a movement of, by, and for working people.

If the Democrats refuse to embrace this platform, they’ll continue to lose, either to Republicans or to us.

Transform Our Economy

We need a bold economic vision that will both reclaim lost capital and put money back in the pockets of hard-working Americans, and create millions of new jobs for those who have been left out of the workforce.

GREEN NEW DEAL

Scientists are sounding the alarm on climate change.

Communities are fighting back.

It’s time to drastically and immediately move away from fossil fuels, develop the technologies of the future, and create prosperity for all of us — not just those on top.

The Green New Deal is a mass mobilization to dramatically expand existing renewable power sources and deploy new production capacity with the goal of meeting 100% of national power demand through renewable sources.

The Green New Deal will also provide all members of our society, across all regions and all communities, the opportunity, training and education to be a full and equal participant in the transition, including through a job guarantee program to assure a living wage job to every person who wants one and ensure a ‘just transition’ for all workers, low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous communities, rural and urban communities and the front-line communities most affected by climate change, pollution and other environmental harm including by ensuring that local implementation of the transition is led from the community level and by prioritizing solutions that end the harms faced by front-line communities from climate change and environmental pollution.

And up at the top of the page is that box that says “DONATE.”

Except what you are donating for, as AOC herself informed us on the MSNBC Town Hall with Chris Hayes on 03/29/19, is nothing at all, to wit:

OCASIO-CORTEZ: And first all of we wave a magic wand and we passed the Green New Deal resolution tomorrow, what happens?

Nothing because it’s a resolution.

end quotes

So why aren’t the people being asked to donate on these various websites touting and promoting the “Green New Deal” as the cure for everything that ails this country being told the truth that if the “Green New Deal” were to be passed this afternoon, nothing is going to happen and nothing is going to change?

And where is all that donation money going to?

And for what cause then?

WE HAVE PLENTY OF ENVIRONMENTAL INJUSTICE HERE IN THE CORRUPT ****HOLE OF AOC'S NEW YORK STATE THANKS TO DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST GOVERNOR YOUNG ANDY CUOMO, SO ANYTHING AOC AND KAMALA HARRIS CAN DO TO REIN IN HIS INJUSTICES WOULD BE APPRECIATED ...

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

"Harris announces 'landmark bill' with AOC to fight 'environmental injustice'"


John Gage

30 JULY 2019

Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was teaming up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to make sure the Green New Deal would lift up low-income communities, people of color, and indigenous communities.

"Too many communities in America face systemic environmental injustice — that must end," the California Democrat said Monday on Twitter.


"Today, I'm partnering with @AOC to announce a landmark bill to ensure that a Green New Deal leaves no one behind and lifts up low-income communities, people of color, and indigenous communities."

The bill, titled "Climate Equity Act of 2019," would require congressional climate and environmental bills to have an equity score and require additional review for "climate equity" in federal regulations.

The bill would additionally require all major federal climate and environmental investments to consider front-line groups, including low-income communities, indigenous communities, and communities of color.

The bill would create an office of Climate and Environmental Justice Accountability to handle new responsibilities created by the bill.

Harris is currently polling in fourth place at 11% in the Democratic presidential primary according to RealClearPolitics.

Ocasio-Cortez originally introduced the Green New Deal in February.

The bill seeks to shift large amounts of the U.S. economy to be directed at fighting climate change.


The non-binding resolution includes calls for the U.S. to deal with "a large racial wealth divide."

The resolution also claimed environmental issues "disproportionately" affect indigenous communities.

Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti claimed earlier this month about the Green New Deal that "it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all ... we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing."

Paul Plante says:

And while we are on this subject of the great Democrat “climate crisis scam,” where “scam” means a “fraudulent scheme” performed by a dishonest individual or group in an attempt in this case to obtain scads on money on the backs of the American taxpayer through the federal budget and considerable political power over our lives and futures, which “climate crisis scam” in this case needs all of us so petrified by fear that we can’t think straight for it to succeed, let’s flesh the “climate crisis scam” out a bit more by going back to a Washington Examiner article entitled “Harris announces ‘landmark bill’ with AOC to fight ‘environmental injustice'” by John Gage on 30 July 2019, where we have as follows:

Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was teaming up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to make sure the Green New Deal would lift up low-income communities, people of color, and indigenous communities.

end quotes

Now, that one sentence alone with its direct reference to the Democratic Socialist/AOC scam known as the “Green New Deal” and “lifting up” low-income communities, people of color and indigenous communities should give us a real clear idea of what is really at stake here, which is something called “social engineering,” which simply stated is the use of centralized planning in an attempt to manage social change and regulate the future development and behavior of a society.

Which raises the serious question as we head into the 2020 presidential elections, where the soul of our nation is now truly at stake, of do we, the American people, really want to put our future and the future of our children and grandchildren into the hands of AOC and Kamala Harris in their attempt to manage what they consider to be needed social change here in the United States of America as they regulate the future development and behavior of our society here in the United States of America?

Do we really?

And besides exactly nothing, what does carbon dioxide have to do with lifting up people of color?

As to this “social engineering,” and “lifting up” of people, those of us who still have functioning memories of events more than a few minutes or TWEETS ago who also follow the news as part of our citizenship duties and responsibilities, those few of us who are still citizens as opposed to consumers, who don’t have to think, only shop, because they are the main engine of our economy today, are witnessing the results of previous attempts at “social engineering” by the United States in the on-going riots in Baghdad, Iraq, where people are demanding all the stuff they thought they were promised when Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton put their imprimatur on the invasion of Iraq to remove dictator Saddam Hussein , as well as all the troubles in Syria, which was an attempt by the witless Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton to impose “social justice” on the people of Syria at the point of a gun, which is where change always seems to have to come from, from those people, that said by myself as a VEET NAM combat veteran who saw “social justice” being imposed on the people of Viet Nam at the point of a bayonet by the Democrats and LBJ, who had a thing about “people of color” in VEET NAM.

So, do we really need more of it, this time here in the United States of America?

Think very seriously about that, people, while you have time to do some clear thinking before entering that voting booth come November of next year.

As to the “Green New Deal” itself being nothing more than a fundraising scam, to see how that is, all we need do is go back to the Cape Charles Mirror on April 12, 2019 @ 9:54 AM http://www.capecharlesmirror.com/news/g … ent-140073 where we had as follows, to wit:

Pardon my mistake, but the link above is incorrect.

The Cape Charles Mirror article in question I was referring to is titled “Green New Deal is really just about ending Capitalism” on April 7, 2019 by Wayne Creed:

This thread is in essence a follow-on to that thread given the passage of time and new developments in the story since April of this year.
