History

The Manhattan-based Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS) has discussed the concept of a Green New Deal since at least 2013:

The RLS is the American affiliate of the Berlin-based Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, a wholly owned affiliate of German political party Die Linke (The Left)—a direct descendant of the former Stalinist East German Communist Party.<ref>https://www.theepochtimes.com/former-east-german-communists-training-guiding-democratic-socialists-of-america_2628662.html</ref> The RLS works closely with the United States' largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and the pro-China Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), as well as the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), all of which are fully behind the Green New Deal. According to the New Yorker the proposal was

According to Momentum's website:

Momentum boasts of training activists from groups “doing some of the most important movement-building” in the United States, including “Black Lives Matter, Dream Defenders, BYP100, United We Dream, Showing Up For Racial Justice, 350.org, National People’s Action, PICO, and more.”<ref>https://www.momentumcommunity.org/about-momentum/</ref> All of these groups are front groups or close affiliates of the FRSO. In short, the Green New Deal seeks a fusion of climate activists with the civil rights movement, as was done with the Feminist movement in the 1970s and Gay rights movement in the 1990s.

Strong similarities exist between the Green New Deal and Germany's failed environmental program.<ref>Peek, Liz (February 21, 2019). AOC's green deal isn't new — it's been a flop in Germany. The Hill. Retrieved February 21, 2019.</ref>

Funding

Several of the organizations promoting the Green New Deal are connected to far-left financier George Soros, as well as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.<ref>Klein, Aaron (February 19, 2019).

The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to “mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and create economic prosperity for all.” New Consensus provides the theoretical backbone for the Green New Deal. The DSA, FRSO, and CPUSA are all behind the Green New Deal. Even the League of Revolutionaries for a New America, has backed the plan.<ref>https://www.facebook.com/events/227647884777976/</ref>

Reparations

's brother-in-law.]] Progressive leftists see this plan as being a vehicle through which “social equality might finally be realized through the use of reparations to right historical injustices.” To paraphrase Rep. Ilhan Omar, “because some people did something somewhere,” all non-African Americans, post American Civil War immigrants, descendants of veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, descendants of residents of Free Soil states, descendants of residents of states that never had Jim Crow laws, Native Americans and residents of states that joined the Union after the Civil War, must pay taxes into the federal treasury which than will disburse reparations to compensate for the Democratic party's slave power, under the Democratic Socialists' distorted sense of “justice”. Whether persons of mixed race receive only partial compensation has not been determined, or whether a partial payment would be offset by any culpability for having white blood. There is no means test proposed for descendants of African Americans who owned slaves. Neither qualifying parameters for African Americans such as Barack Obama or Kamala Harris who have no family relationship whatsoever to slaves in the United States. The final Green New Deal will

2020 presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have expressed support for slave reparations.<ref>https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/21/us/politics/2020-democrats-race-policy.html</ref><ref>https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/430999-warren-harris-back-reparations-for-black-americans-affected-by-slavery</ref> The program is little more than a Lyndon Johnson-era recycled Great Society and War on Poverty vote buying scheme to force the federal Treasury and all Americans to pay for the crimes of the Democrat party throughout the Democrat party's long racist history, and to keep African Americans subservient and dependent on the Democrat slave plantation.

The most unjust aspect of the proposal is asking white descendants of the 700,000 white males who gave their lives to free Blacks in the Civil War to now share in the culpability of white Democrat slave holders. And it was the same Democrats who implemented segregation and Jim Crow. White Republicans were the first victims of lynching in the Reconstruction era. After Republicans had been driven out of the South by Democrats, then Democrats turned to lynching Blacks. No Republicans were slave holders.

War on Cow Flatulence

:

The Green New Deal seeks to turn all Americans into vegans.<ref>Should plant-based meat replace beef completely?, Paul Solman, PBS News Hour, Dec 21, 2017.</ref>

The dirty little secret about the global warming hoax is that it's not Dick Cheney, Halliburton and capitalism destroying the planet with carbon emissions, but rather American's beef-eating habits and reliance on dairy products. As population grows, dairy cow and slaughter beef herds get bigger. One cow gives off more methane gas daily than an automobile at a McDonald's drive thru.<ref>https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/should-plant-based-meat-replace-beef-completely</ref>

The proposal doesn't spell out if “massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing” supports President Trump's trade war with oversees automobile manufacturers, or if the jobs will go to China to achieve the Democrats' plan to create “a job for anyone who wants one.”

Financing

:

Ocasio-Cortez's plan would be financed by taxpayers, the Federal Reserve and other institutions the government can create.

This proposal violates the House Paygo provision, which mandates all new spending proposals must carry with them cuts in programs for existing constituencies, or proposals for tax increases to offset added spending. Ocasio-Cortez's Medicare for All proposal, which Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi both claim to support, adds spending more than two times America's Gross Domestic Product,<ref>https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-07-30/study-medicare-for-all-bill-estimated-at-32-6-trillion</ref> making the Medicare for All provision a fantasy, Ocasio-Cortez a simpleton, and Pelosi and Sanders bald face liars to stupid people. Paygo is Pelosi's own rule that she herself formulated as Speaker of the House.

Printing money causes inflation and a dramatic rise in the cost of living. To get to net-zero carbon emissions the government of France has targeted elimination of carbon-emitting vehicles by the year 2040 - ten years later than Green New Deal targets. An 8 cent per gallon fuel tax increase in November 2018 to discourage fossil fuel consumption and encourage conversion to electric cars sparked months of rioting leaving at least 10 people dead and dozens with serious injuries including loss of limbs. The protests and riots - originally over carbon fuel taxes for a green economy - now include protests over rising living costs.

House Committee on the Climate Crisis

The House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis was formed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2019 under pressure from Rep.

The crisis

Economist Thomas Sowell, in his 1995 book, The Vision of the Anointed, outlined the general pattern with multiple examples.<ref>http://nobsblog.blogspot.com/2002/12/vision-of-anointed-by-thomas-sowell.html?m=1</ref>

  • STAGE 1. THE ‘CRISIS: Some situation exists, whose negative aspects the anointed propose to eliminate. Such a situation is routinely characterized as a 'crisis'
  • STAGE 2. THE ‘SOLUTION’: Policies to end the ‘crisis’ are advocated by the anointed, who say that these policies will lead to beneficial result A. Critics say that these policies will lead to detrimental result Z. The anointed dismiss these latter claims as absurd and ‘simplistic,’ if not dishonest.
  • STAGE 3. THE RESULTS: The policies are instituted and lead to detrimental result Z.
  • STAGE 4. THE RESPONSE: Those who attribute detrimental result Z to the policies instituted are dismissed as ‘simplistic’ for ignoring the ‘complexities’ involved, as ‘many factors’ went into determining the outcome.

Later in the book Sowell adds other potential responses:

  • Goals are redefined after the fact to give the public the illusion of success regarding the policies put in place.
  • Bad motives are ascribed to the opposition or to society in general.
  • The good intentions of the anointed are highlighted.
  • They attack the accuracy of the data showing failure.

Government spending & debt vs investment

This is an old ruse first introduced by candidate Bill Clinton in 1992, referring to increased government spending and piling on the national debt as “investment.” Many other politicians and journalists have since misused the term. Clinton aimed to hide the negative associations most voters had from experiences of the New Deal and Great Society - new spending meant vote buying, tax increases, and inflation. Fortunately for Clinton, he presided over two years of balanced budgets in the post-Cold War era and negative aspects of increased spending weren't immediately apparent.

Investment,” used in its proper context, comes from savings. Government spending only increases debt.

Job killer

Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York, who supports the Green New Deal, was livid when her fellow communists killed the prospect of Amazon bringing its main headquarters to New York and creating 25,000 jobs with wages averaging $150,000.<ref>https://youtu.be/nnVS-Zah54k</ref> Elizabeth Warren and Ocasio-Cortez took credit for killing the deal.

CNN reported the fight over Amazon is the fight for the future of the Democratic Party. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

Warren tweeted

Amazon was promised up to $1.5 billion in tax abatements in exchange for the promise of creating 25,000 jobs. Ocasio-Cortez believes a tax abatement is a bucket of cash the government can spend on subways or teachers. Warren called the tax incentives “bribes.”

CNN claimed

Mayor Bill De Blasio blamed Amazon for the deal falling apart.<ref>https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/14/politics/amazon-aoc-democrats-future/index.html</ref>
