The Technocratic Agenda Behind the “Green New Deal”

James Corbett, February 16 2019

You don't need to be holding a crystal ball to see where the globalists are steering society. We just need to be smart enough to listen to what they're saying...

You may have seen "Students Love Green New Deal... Until Hearing What's In It" by now, but if not you probably get the gist just from the title. Yes, it's one of those "man on the street" interview videos where random college students are asked whether they support new progressive superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ("AOC" to those in the cool crowd) and her much-ballyhooed "Green New Deal." And, as you also might be able to guess, the video highlights those eager young idealists who profess their love for the plan . . . until they discover what it actually says.

For those who might have missed it, the Green New Deal made headlines for all the wrong reasons earlier this month when some of its critics picked up on a few of the crazier aspects of the plan. Like the fact that the deal promises economic security to all those who are unable to work (standard fare in the modern nanny state era) and also to all those who are unwilling to work.

Unwilling to work? Really?

Scrambling to do damage control, AOC's team immediately took down the offending post from her website, then claimed that the screenshots of the controversial language came from "doctored" documents that were being placed online by those evil right wingers . . . until it was revealed that archives of the page had been created showing that AOC had indeed posted it to her website. So then they tried to explain away the page by saying that it had only been for internal campaign use (without explaining why that should put anyone's mind at ease).

But try as they might, AOC and her green minions can't dismiss criticisms of their cherished "Green New Deal" as mere knee-jerk opposition from those science-denying, hate-filled Repugs. A score of self-styled leftists, Democrats, progressives and other erstwhile allies in the fight against life-giving carbon dioxide have similarly opined on the ridiculous nature of this plan, from Naomi Wolf to Read more

America is ALREADY a Socialist Country

James Corbett, February 9 2019

This isn't an aberration. This is what government is. It is its nature. There is no political process that makes it better. You cannot vote yourself to freedom any more than slaves could vote their way off the plantation.
