It’s said the younger generations are in favor of socialism and are gladdened—amidst the daily deluge of Trump trashing by the corporate media—by the efforts of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to push her “Green New Deal,” a socialist plan masquerading under cover of saving the planet from the threat of air-conditioning, central heating, and trips to Walmart in the family car.
The plan was dreamed up by a gaggle of millennial socialists over a single weekend.

It seems Ocasio-Cortez and her comrades intend to kill a large number of Americans. The Green New Deal will result in a lifestyle similar to that of say a European peasant in 1820. Solar and wind won’t save us. There is now way it can meet the needs of a technology reliant civilization, a system built on the use of petroleum.
The Green New Deal proposes eliminating nuclear, natural gas, LNG, oil and coal in the next eleven years. That is about 88 percent of America’s current energy sources.https://t.co/3S1QjeAfia

Believe it or not, these people are convinced shutting down the current energy infrastructure and implementing a pipe dream “clean energy” alternative will result in happy days again.
Yes, we can totally see why so many people are excited about the Green New Deal: it plans to turn our country into an energy-efficient, #cleantech, full-employment, living-wage nation. All by 2028! #IIoT #agtech https://t.co/DmG3AQ3GzU pic.twitter.com/djDsz7Ql5I

But it’s not merely a group of seriously deluded millennials onboard with this suicide plan. It’s also opportunistic career Democrats interested in securing their privileged position in the Bizarro world of American politics.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Elizabeth Warren. Beto O’Rourke. Those are just a few of the high-profile names either leading the development of or jumping to endorse today’s environmental cause célèbre, the Green New Deal. Inside congressional halls, at street protests, and, of course, on climate Twitter — it’s hard to avoid the idea, which aims to re-package ambitious climate actions into a single, wide-ranging stimulus program.
The Green Delusion is “being promoted as a kind of progressive beacon of a greener America, promising jobs and social justice for all on top of a shift away from fossil fuels. It’s a proposal largely driven by newcomers to politics and environmental activism (and supported, however tentatively, by several potential presidential candidates and members of the Democratic political establishment).”
Dems and progressives quite typically ignore the math. This green plan—actually a socialist boondoggle to push the Identity and intersectional agenda on the American people—will cost trillions.
No worries. The socialists have it figured out.
TY @rch371 The short answer to ‘how we will pay for’ the Green New Deal is easy. We’ll pay for it just as we pay for all else: Congress will authorize necessary spending, and Treasury will spend. This is how we do it – always has been, always will be. https://t.co/PkGUV86ep4

In other words, massive growth of the deficit and shifting the responsibility to pay for a humongous and largely ignored national debt over to the unborn and small children in an imaginative scheme that will keep the debt beast feeding on its victims well into the future.
Establishment Democrats will back this green delusion. Many have arrived at the conclusion that Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are not the future representing the flip side of the one party arrangement. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is.
Let’s call the Green New Deal what is—a Trojan horse for the socialists.
Socialism—communism lite—is a great control mechanism. If you complain too loudly about brownouts, blackouts, the inability to pay for severely taxed gasoline (think of the Yellow Vests in France), food shortages, and dozens of necessities dependent on the current energy arrangement, you may be called out as a climate denier. This classification is one rung down from that of the holocaust denier.
Those times are coming—and sooner before later, especially as the wheels come off an artificially pumped up stock market.
I keep saying this and I will say it again. If the political arrangement in this country does not change—if the republic and the Constitution (or what’s left of both) are to survive—the wars must end and the monetary system taken out of the hands of international bankers and a predatory global elite.
I’m not seeing this happen. I am seeing millions of ill-informed, propagandized, and badly educated Americans—in history, geography, politics—either fully or partially buying into a delusional system that is teetering on the edge of economic and social disaster.
If the history of the 20th century shows anything it’s that people will go along with the prevailing political arrangement until such a time as there is a breakdown, economic failure, and social chaos. We’re not there yet. We are rapidly approaching that destination.
The socialists are ready to take over. Like FDR, they’re good at demanding sacrifice, and punishing those who reject the premise manmade carbon is responsible for an approaching climate apocalypse. It wasn’t a surprise when they wove this into existing leftist narratives, most prominently race-gender identity and wealth inequality (shorthand for taxation and redistribution to groups carved out by the state).
The Greatest Depression will require the greatest sacrifice, possibly on a level not yet experienced in the West. The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez authoritarians will follow the path of their socialist-communist predecessors. The old New Deal and its subsequent world war empowered the state on many levels, including the establishment of the national security state in the United States.
The endgame is not submerged coastal cities and climate change anomalies, but rather war with either China or Russia, possibly both, as the national security state completes its planetary suicide mission.
