‘Our Planet Is In Peril’: Cory Booker Compares Green New Deal To Fighting Nazi Germany

From The Daily Caller

Fighting Nazi Germany

Chris White | Energy Reporter

Democratic Sen. Cory Booker appeared to compare adopting the so-called Green New Deal with fighting the Nazi regime.

“Our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold,” Booker said at a Friday campaign event in Iowa. There are a lot of people who are critical of the deal. Critics claim “it’s too impractical, and it’s too expensive.”

“And when the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save Earth … from the scourge of Nazis and totalitarian regimes?” Booker asked rhetorically. “We came forward.” (RELATED: Does Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Outlaw Every Building In The Country)

“We came forward with the Marshal Plan,” he added, referring to a U.S. program concocted during the 1940s to rebuild parts of German and other European countries bombed out during World War II.

The GND, which was introduced Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calls for a “10-year national mobilizations” toward a series of goals aimed at fighting global warming. A separate fact sheet published online claims the plan would “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War 2.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s original concept received support from Booker and other potential presidential candidates. The updated version, however, which was rolled out Thursday morning, got only tepid support from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who called the idea a “green dream” Wednesday.

Projection? The green blob behaves like a classical mass movement, acting as if they were an evangelical religion, much like the socialists of various flavors before the Second World War.
While the NSADAP had eugenics as a cause to exploit, the greens have climate science. Neither actually seems to treat the centerpiece of their obsessions in a rigorous manner. I am sure a National Socialist could no more rigorously define “aryan” any more than a green blob member could rationalize why more than 1.5 degrees warming is deadly.
But I think either should be taken seriously as a threat. True Believers might do nearly anything.

The green movement sounds more and more like Hitler’s Germany. Invade and tare down sectors of society, rebuilding it in their preferred format, all the while striving for globalized governance. Cory Booker has one thing right, the Green New Deal movement is exactly like Hitler’s plans in the late 1930s so we do need to fight AOC and her ilk with all the fervor of the Allies against the Green Axis.

WRONG – Hitler’s Germany was not about global governance or creating fake science. Hitler strictly forbade exporting Nazism because it wouldn’t work without Germans (obviously). Everyone knows that the Germans were way ahead of the US, Britain, France and the developed world in scientific matters. So it’s truly stupid to accuse the Germans of fake science.

Stalin and the USSR openly exported Bolshevik Communism all over the world. Their stated goal was Communist world domination. Bolshevik Communism was responsible for at least 100 million deaths worldwide. Look to Bolsheviks and Stalin for a beautiful example of state managed, insane ‘science’ run amok.

George Orwell wrote 1984 and Animal Farm based on his experience with Communism during the Spanish Civil War. Both novels highlight the fact that Leftist Communist ideology generates fake knowledge. For example, in 1984, a goal of Big Brother is to force people to believe that 2+2=5. They used torture and mind manipulation to achieve this.

Even Jordan Peterson has a Youtube video on the weird mentality of the Soviet era secret police. They had a fetish about forcing their victims to confess to crimes they obviously did not commit. Very much like the Spanish Inquisition or the Salem Witch Trials.

The concept of ‘denier’ as in Global Warming Denier or Holocaust Denier is a beautiful example of Orwellian doublespeak.

The Germans were not guilty of that kind of reality-bending nonsense.

Hillerisem: One type of government to rule the world. Both based on totalitarianism and so called “social justice”.

tarrasik and GW,

Germany happens to be the main Nation triggering and fighting two WW for global dominance.
Especially in the second one, with Nazis in charge of Germany the fever of global dominance by Nazi Germany was beyond the clarity of obvious.

Oh well, their vision of global government will be like a Nazi AUN instead of simply UN.
Hopefully not too hard to figure out what “A” stands there for.

Oh well, maybe I got it all backwards….again 🙂

“Hitler didn’t want to export Nazism…true”

Not true. The Nazis did try to export nazism, though mostly only to countries with “aryan” population (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, flemish Belgium). And they were perfectly willing to ally themselves with kindred political movements however non-aryan such as e. g. Moslem extremists in the Middle East and the Balkans.

Per the WIKI article on “Occupation of Poland”

From the beginning, the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany was intended as fulfilment of the future plan of the German Reich described by Adolf Hitler in his book Mein Kampf as Lebensraum (“living space”) for the Germans in Central and Eastern Europe. The occupation goal was to turn former Poland into ethnically German “living space”, by deporting and exterminating the non-German populace, or relegating it to the position of slave labour. The goal of the German state under Nazi leadership during the war was to destroy the Polish peoples and nation completely and their fate, as well as many other Slavs, was outlined in genocidal Generalplan Ost (General Plan for the East) and a closely related Generalsiedlungsplan (General Plan for Settlement). Over 30 years, approximately 12.5 million Germans were to be resettled into the Slavic areas, including Poland; with some versions planning for a movement of at least 100 million Germans over a century. The Slavic inhabitants of those lands were to be eliminated by genocidal policies

So the ultimate plan was to exterminate/relocate/subjugate indigenous peoples and repopulate with Germans

If Hitler hadn’t expended so much capital on hosting the Olympic Games, he would have had more to pour into the German War Machine.
They had developed Stealth Technology…The Horton Ho 229 which had twin Jet engines and could travel a 620 mile range in an hour
There was even plans for a larger Horton 18A with 6 engines and a greater payload capacity
If Germany hadn’t run out of wartime capital and these had been deployed, the War would have ended differently

As far as I can tell, two main points the Germany lost the War, in my opinion.
First it lost the battle for or over Britain, against any odds it still lost!
Second it lost almost its entire main army in Russia due to a very cold freezing winter.

First loss, the turning point, the second one, the end of Nazi Germany then.

I do not think Hitler could be blamed or hold responsible for the second one, while considering the very implication of the first major loss over Britain, almost the entire Luftwaffe potential against GB and the Allies.

Germany did not lose the war because it had not a big enough or powerful enough army, or because it did not have any good enough logistics or not good enough resources or industry to support the war machine.
It lost due to mainly man and weather, in concept of strategy…I think.

Everyone knows that the Germans were way ahead of the US, Britain, France and the developed world in scientific matters.

So what, …… everyone also knows that the US was way ahead of Germany, Britain, France and the developed world in development of the Atomic Bomb.

And you all had’ta ask …….. “Just why was Nazi Germany way ahead of the developed world in scientific matters”?

Well “DUH”, to wit:

The German rearmament was an era of rearmament in Germany during the interwar period (1918–1939), in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. It began as soon as the treaty was signed, on a small, secret, and informal basis, but it was massively expanded after the Nazi Party came to power in 1933. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_re-armament

And what was the US’s “HIGH PRIORITY” in the 1930’s.

“YUP”, instituting and trying to enforce Prohibition …… but only succeeded in creating a corrupt Legal system and organized crime, both of which is still prevalent to this day.

Olympics? I doubt it to be honest. We are talking apples to wardrobes to the comparisons are very abstracted, but the 1936 games cost about $30 to 50 million. The Bismarck apparently cost about 197 million RM. Conversion is about 1:4 apparent so, roughly, the 36 games cost the same as to build (not build and operate) one battleship.

Also I wouldn’t draw too much on German ‘secret’ weapon projects. Concentrate on what actually became operational and WHEN it became operational. In context the US was developing a trans-Atlantic bomber during the war. This eventually became the B36 after the war, but the point was they were developing it, as a ‘secret project’ etc etc, DURING the war. Claiming that the Germans had all sorts of amazing super weapons just around the corner is largely meaningless without considering the large amounts of Allied ‘super weapons’ that didn’t get into service either at all or until after the war.

As for Battle of Britain under the circumstances it is impressive that the Germans did as well as they did. What most forget to discuss is the fact that basically the prime function of the RAF was air defence Great Britain and the system in place in 1940 was the best in the world.

Germany, having more or less stumbled into the rapid collapse of France (not that they were complaining, but pretty much everyone assumed it was going to take longer) they were then faced with the question of what to do with the UK. General feeling was they would realise they were not in a position to keep fighting and would ask for terms in a few weeks. They were then rather shocked with the British decided to destroy the French fleet to prevent those ships being seized by Germany – think about it, Britain had gone from fighting alongside the French to blow them up in the space of a few weeks – and suddenly realised they were going to need to do SOMETHING about Britain.

Unfortunately for Germany they had never really seriously made plans and were forced into both the Battle of Britain and Sealion as pretty much planning on the fly. They tried a number of tactics, more or less failed at all of them and eventually switched to night bombing with the vague promise they would sort it all out come next Spring. (Then pretended it wasn’t important and invaded Russia).

Britain naturally talked up the Battle because there was a war on. Why would you talk down a victory after all? Of course it was hard. Of course it was backs to the wall. Of course it was Their Finest Hour. Not saying it was a complete cake walk but the RAF had planned for this and fought the battle with a brutal pragmatism. The Germans hadn’t planned and fought the battle with a stunning ego that moved into a mild concern and eventually became something to deal with later. In real terms it cost the Germans a lot more then it did the RAF which despite loses, actually increased in size over the course of the battle.

WW2 – big subject. We digress.

Nazism is by definition globalist – the nation state, first given form in 1783, is to be rolled back, a Hitler clearly said, who’s model was Napoleon. Neo-con is just fascism with a grin.

Good for them, they are now free to go and earn some decent money.

I can only congratulate Ukraine for making their choice, sending corrupt “Yanu” back to Moscow where he & his Omon/FSB/Berkut hooligans all belong, then the USA sticking Manafort in klink for a decade for stage managing it all.

As for the climate stuff, same as 1941, a few nice cold winters and we will soon see how the authoritarian socialist stalewarts survive the freezing cold.

For the most part your statement is true –

However, A large portion of the leading german scientists were jewish. Hitler removed most, if not all the jewish scientists from their posts, banned the teaching of most segments of science that were discovered by jewish scientists.

It should also me noted that a majority of the jewish physists migrated to either Britain or to the US and worked on the manhattan project or the british equivilant of the manhattan project.

The Green New Deal reminds me most of Imperial Japan and the Rape of Nanking. Where the “super race” of The Imperial Japanese (eco-leftists) butchered all the Chinese males and burned the city to the ground (green retrofit every building). The Left has screamed their HATE of males so loudly and persistently, that the APA has actually labeled ALL men as toxic. All testosterone as toxic. Extermination comes next, as there is no cure … short of transgendering every male into a eunuch. And the women were raped, and tortured, and mutilated. The eco-left favors post-birth abortion to “thin the human herd”. The entire Chinese culture was selected for elimination and enslavement … so too the totalitarian, morally-superior, eco-leftists have selected Capitalism … esp. American Free Market (sorta) Capitalism … American culture for elimination.

Our existential THREAT comes from the radical eco-left, who have the temerity to call OUR CULTURE the equivalent of Nazi Germany … to justify our DEATHS. We climate crisis skeptics will be put to the sword FIRST. Our voices, videos, and writing will be urgently silenced … by any means necessary.

Exactly what worries me Bryan A.

With the difference that where I live we have the stigmates of how it started and ended. The words “ecology” and “bio dynamic agriculture” were part of the officially supported ideology. Earth had to be purified from polluting inferior races and their natural riches put under the management of superior (genetically) pure Arians.

The entire nation was mobilized to create and support the required structures and “tools”.

America should never forget the memory of those who gave all to terminate the resulting mayhem.

Remember, by declaring CO2 a pollutant, green hegemony sets a de facto framework to control all breathing beings.

It’s no more a racial or species question, control went on a global unprecedented scale.

Those guys want power and money by means of an invented process. However once they get it, their only solution will be to persist and carry further or risk to be held accountable for the resulting destruction.

“And somehow Americans don’t see 9/11 as exactly a failed Reichstagsbrand. ”

Mostly because we’re not stupid.

We and most of the world have recordings of Bin Laden admitting to the plan for 9/11. In addition, it’s pretty clear if you actually STUDY the Reichstag fire that the “False Flag” Theory has never held water.

It was almost certainly the actions of Van der Lubble, done in the hopes of sparking a massive Communist revolution against the German government and the ascendant NSDAP.

American management of it after the fact has left *much* to be desired, to put it mildly- as the DHS and TSA show. But this doesn’t mean it was INSIDE JOB any more than the far worse NatSoc consolidations mean the Reichstag Fire was.

Then there is WW2 in Europe. It started when Stalin and Hitler conspired to divide up Eastern Europe. Hitler attacked Poland first on 1 Sept 1939, their Soviet allies attacked seventeen days later after they had signed a non-aggression pact with Japan. So, I would divide the 40-50 million civilian dead in Europe during WW2 to the National Socialists and Marxist-Leninist Socialists. They were all socialists of one stripe or another. Just like AOC.

No, but Democrats have, in the form of the hysterical progressive/socialist/radical/liberal/Democrat ultra-orthodox believers in their Green religion of Climate Change. And theirs is the only religion allowed (except for Islam), so everyone else of any other belief system, please bow down to the “One True Faith.”

That self-proclaimed well-educated and intelligent individuals who are members of this country’s government are unable to recognize the utter destruction we would face — with the elimination of the commercial aviation industry, trucking, and fossil fuels; the mandatory retrofitting of every building in the United States; the installation of hundreds of thousands of land and ocean-based windmills, and millions upon millions of solar panels on roofs across the continent — is utterly incomprehensible.

Do the environmentalists really want migratory birds roasted in mid-air when flying over millions of acres of solar panels? How about birds being decimated by windmills? Do they want the American landscape and seascapes scarred by windfarms wherever anyone looks? Would the National Parks also be subjected to this treatment?

How many people in dozens of industries would lose their jobs? If you consider just the aviation industry, consider the following: as of 2017, there were 17 major U.S. carriers; 609,000 pilots; 965 million U.S. passengers flying both domestic and international airlines on 9,756 million flights. How about the flight attendants, the mechanics, the flight controllers? How many millions of people will be losing jobs, and what would they do instead? What other industries could absorb how many of those highly skilled people into jobs they’re not trained for, and may have no interest in?

Does this mean that families will no longer be able to visit relatives in distant destinations nationally and internationally when they want to? When a loved one has died or is critically ill, and hours are crucial? Or to attend a wedding, or the celebration of a newborn? What happens to the travel industry? How many millions of people are employed in resorts worldwide? Where will they find work when Americans can no longer travel overseas? The restaurant industry is tied to the travel industry. What happens to that? Are we marching right back in time to the 19th Century, when it took a horse and carriage an average of 8 to 12 hours to travel 50 miles, including stops for the horse to rest and eat? How do you travel overseas for a 2-week vacation when it typically takes about a week to go from New York and Southampton, and if you’re going to or from Hamburg, it can take up to 11 days (10 nights) to make the journey?

One question leads to another, and there are dozens, if not hundreds, more. Have any of the progressive/socialist/radical/liberal/Democrat geniuses considered any of them, and come up any answers? One of Shakespeare’s most famous lines was “Let’s kill all the lawyers.” I’m no Shakespeare by I say “let’s lobotomize all the Democrats.” The world will be a better place because of it.

Rhoda R, you are spot on. “He sees it as a path to socialist feudalism with him on the top of the heap.”

What they don’t have the ability to comprehend is that the degree of fall associated with going from a semi-free society to one without the energy producing technologies we now possess will involve a societal collapse so vast that the “heap” will probably be a only few inches high. The older members of the ruling class who do, perhaps, realize that there will be no lavish lifestyle for anyone after they achieve hegemony don’t care because they will be safely dead by the time all wealth disappears, and along with it much of the human species.

For the UK at least there is such a plan ,as revealed by Paul Homewood last month
The plan , which is being kept from the public for the moment, is to plant wind farms along the high speed line from London to , ultimately , Manchester and Leeds.
Rather tongue in cheek I suggested that for the proposed all electric vehicle fleet we should need wind farms at every motorway service station , only to be trumped by someone who pointed out that in France that is already in progress.

Even if we granted Booker the Nazi analogy, the result would be 50% of GDP/year just to rid the Atlantic coast of U-boats. There is literally nothing that the U.S. could do by itself to “save the world”.

When we export all of our manufacturing jobs to China our CO2 emissions should go down. Their emissions will go up, plus the extra transportation emissions. This would be a net “loss” for the world by the alarmist’s own stupid metrics.

And it promises to control the climate so that bad weather is no more.

It is perfectly possible that climate change might prove to be a problem if temperatures get too high.

The problem is that natural causes are the more probable cause and if we first spend all of our capital “solving” for CO2 simply to find that solves nothing, then where do we get the capital to solve the correct problem.

The saner solution is to roll out actual (as in implementable) energy solutions, likely nuclear in the long run. That can be cost effective and doesn’t require a complete reorganization of the economy of our world.

If we have problems with temperature in the future, solve that problem then. We’ll still have the capital, likely more than now. And with better tools and technology.

Conservatives will join the Greens in pushing for new nuclear power. The problem is solved. No more existential threat to Earth. No need to disrupt the entire economy.

Cory Brooker and Ms. Cortez’s proposals do not add up:
She is proposing 10 years for “100 % renewable energy.” Impossible. Here are the numbers based on Dept. of Energy statistics (all numbers are in one and the same unit, the GW).
Over-all energy production in the US in 2017 was 3300
Electrical energy alone was 465
Now, the question is, which energy was Cortez referring to? One is 7 times bigger than the other. But, because renewables generate only one form of energy, electricity, let’s assume she meant the smaller number.
In 2017, electricity production from renewables averaged 35. That implies 465-35 = 430 to go. Is that possible?
Wind and solar are the only renewables with appreciable growth potential in the US. Together, they have been adding about 3.5 annually lately. At that rate, 430/3.5 = 120 years to reach her goal, not ten. And that is, providing the consumption should not be increasing during that century as it should in a prosperous and growing population.
Cortez might say: So, we’ll grow renewable energy sources twelve time faster than we ever did!

Unlikely. Nor is it in our interest. The renewable-energy industry already employs slightly more than either the gas or coal industry at about 250 000 jobs and growing. The irony: We are growing energy sector where one employee at thermal power-plants accounts for 1600 kW, in contrast to the 16 kW in W&S industry. The available US work-force will be insufficient to manufacture, operate, maintain, tear down, dispose of and erect all those millions of W&S plants that would be needed anew every 20 years.
We also should recognize that jobs are a cost. And that unnecessary, unproductive jobs are demoralizing thus reducing productivity. Employing robots instead, as some claim, implies more energy yet for powering them.
I claim: not in 10 years, not even in a century can we have 100 % renewable electricity, let alone all of energy. (But we could have: there is a better source of CLEAN energy – nuclear generated electricity and heat.)
PS: In case you are missing wood, geo, bio, and hydro sources among the renewables – their yield is minuscule and has no worthwhile growth potential.

Lacking any political platform that the people would embrace it’s more social engineering for the Left. If Green is their new calling card it means the desperation is increasing and they will dig their own political graves. Americans have proved over and over at the polls that given the choice between saving some sub species over saving people’s lives and standard of living they vote for the people. Carbon tax anyone? Obama temporarily enacted some Green plans to destroy our economy and livelihoods but given the chance to vote on them he knows he would have never succeeded. Kyoto anyone?

It will be interesting to see Democrats like Booker campaigning in Iowa (first presidential primary). The state is primarily a farming state. It’s entire economy would be destroyed by the GND. Some people will figure this out and start asking uncomfortable questions.

-Lots of cows in Iowa that the GND wants to eliminate.
-Lots of corn grown for ethanol which is unneeded with electric cars.
-A forced healthy diet would reduce the need for corn as well. No high fructose corn syrup, corn chips, etc. Can’t grow all that much fruit in Iowa.

I doubt they could put up more wind turbines as the state already has too many.

Here is a link to the updated summary & FAQs released by AOC’s office in conjunction with the draft of the GND resolution itself:

Reading this summary+FAQs document is very entertaining, yet scary for its ignorance of reality. Among the highlights:

— “Move America to 100% clean and renewable energy” (Specifically, nuclear power plants are to be eliminated)

— “Create millions of family supporting-wage, union jobs.” (Apparently, non-union jobs aren’t worth including in the Resolution)

— “Ensure justice and equity for frontline communities by prioritizing investment, training, climate and community resiliency, economic and environmental benefits in these communities.” (no definition provided for “frontline communities”)

— Guarantee (no less):
“ A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical
leave, vacations, and retirement security
 High-quality education, including higher education and
trade schools
 Clean air and water and access to nature
 Healthy food
 High-quality health care
 Safe, affordable, adequate housing
 Economic environment free of monopolies
 Economic security for all who are unable or UNWILLING to
work” (capitalization emphasis added by me)

“Yes, we are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases. Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy.” (Hmmm, among other things, I wonder what will replace cement and concrete? And asphalt, as well? And we will have to get rid off all those plants, including food plants, that release CO2 during nighttime.)

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast . . .” (Yes, that is a verbatim quote!)

“The Green New Deal makes new fossil fuel infrastructure or nuclear plants unnecessary. . . It would simply not make sense to build new fossil fuel infrastructure because we will be creating a plan to reorient our entire economy to work off renewable energy.” (Hmmm, reliable and dispatchable renewable energy across the United States to the exclusion of fossil-fuel or nuclear powered backup generation capability . . . that’s gonna require a LOT of new dams, batteries, molten salts, flywheels, gravity trains, and compressed air underground storage. The waste heat from such energy storage processes is sure to contribute to global warming for hundreds of years into the future.)

It’s better comedy than Saturday Night Live offers up . . . and this is only a sampling of the full document.

Those efforts involved sacrifice; rationing of meat, butter sugar and gasoline (we didn’t have EVs to take the place of our ECIs). Our youth volunteered to fight overseas for several years without home leave. We had “Victory Gardens” for staples. Patriotism soared!

Notice the GND only promises “free entitlements” and the righting of “environmental” and “social” injustices.

Of course Booker compared the “Green New Deal” to WWII. That has been the go to metaphore of “progressives” for more tyhan a century. Jonah Golberg reviews the history of the trope.

“Everyone a Conscript” By Jonah Goldberg

“As I have argued at length elsewhere, such as in my book Liberal Fascism, ever since the philosopher William James gave his lecture “The Moral Equivalent of War” in 1906, the agenda of 20th-century liberalism has been an exercise in trying to decouple the benefits of war from the bloody bits.

“James, the philosophical godfather of progressivism (along with his disciple John Dewey), gave the lecture at Stanford in 1906. He proposed that war is “the only force that can discipline a whole community.” As a pacifist, James wanted to find some new way to inculcate toward productive ends the social solidarity and unity of purpose that war provides.

“the New Deal, that great lodestar of the liberal imagination, was itself pitched as “the moral analogue of war,”

“Roosevelt served in the Wilson administration and campaigned on a promise to bring the same methods to bear in the war on the Great Depression.

“the New Deal has remained the ideological idée fixe of American liberalism, and from Truman’s Fair Deal to Kennedy’s New Frontier to Johnson’s Great Society and War on Poverty to Barack Obama’s “New Foundation” and Cold War–nostalgic rhetoric about “Sputnik moments” and “economic patriotism” to Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, American liberalism has been recycling the same motif over and over again, often without realizing it.”

“The mysterious case of AOC’s scrubbed ‘Green New Deal’ details” by Susan Ferrechio | February 09, 2019

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her “Green New Deal” proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.” …

By the afternoon of Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., removed the document from her website without explanation but following backlash and even ridicule over the radical plans outlined within it, including a call to “eliminate emissions from cows or air travel” — which would functionally ban the latter — and to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

But on Saturday morning, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted that the FAQ page was indeed posted by the Ocasio-Cortez staff but was done so in error.

“Democrats have always needed an enemy, real or imagined,”

When one is a hater, one has to have something on which to focus that hate. And this fits in well with the Democrat tactic of trying to divide various groups in order to pit them against each other for political gain.

Democrats play on the basest of human instincts. They foment fear, anger, hate and division as a means to political power.

Cory Booker: “And when the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save Earth … from the scourge of Nazis and totalitarian regimes?” 

The irony is mind blowing! Booker and most of the designer-brained products of progressive Big Lie miseducation have no idea that they are servants to the new totalitarians that threaten the lives and wellbeing of billions of people.

The Nutsies didnt threaten the planet. The planet isnt vulnerable to destruction by puny humans. They threatened most of humanity, exactly the intention of the exploiters of the invented Catastrophic Anthropo Global Warming crisis. Booker’s and fellow travelers’ numbed minds will never understand this.

Who saved us from the Totalitarians last time? USA! That is precisely why they are coming for the USA now!

In 1929 USSR dictator Joseph Stalin declared that peasants who owned one or more cows were “capitalist roaders” and thus “enemies of the people”. More than 1.8 million “kulaks” were “liquidated” by 1930 and their lands confiscated.

By 1932 famine had struck and ~15 million people starved to death, mainly in the Ukraine. This famine-genocide is known as Holodomor.

The same Stalinist policies are now endorsed by Booker, OAC, and other progressives, with the additional bludgeon of eliminating fossil fuels.

Should all this come to pass, there will not be enough peasants to yoke up to pull plows on the confiscated farm lands and many tens of millions of Americans will starve to death.

Stalin is correctly viewed as one of the most monstrous mass murders in human history. It is unbelievable that modern American politicians would be endorsing his insane policies.

That’s a Red Herring – look closer to home – its Confederate economics. The US only became an industrial powerhouse after Lincoln won, and within a few years Germany and Japan took off from agrarian backwardness. The British Empire looked on in utter desperation – result a century of war.

ACO and the GND fully intend de-industrializing which means mass murder, or “optimal population” as decarbonizer Dr. Schellnhuber CBE smirkingly calls it.

The intent is genocide on a scale to make Goebbels blush. To cover for the sticker-shock all kinds of free-stuff is pasted on.

This could only be done at gunpoint. What could possibly go wrong with putting the government in charge of a plan to force the American people to save the planet and create universal social justice and equality.

Each time I hear “Nazi” My ears shut because I know we are in the “Goodwin law” territory which means there can be no more arguments on anything without being called bad names.
Trying to equate the green new deal to the fighting of nazi Germany is just that.
This is the typical posture of people having no sensible argument for their case.
The problem here is that this madness is now turning into a political platform aimed at defining idiotic and dangerous policies for you and me !

For every Marshall Plan $1 to Berlin, $4 went to Paris and $4 to London. Look what Germany accomplished – modern nuclear power, transport, housing.

It defeated the Morgenthau Plan to force Germany back pre-Bismarck without industry. Today Berlin is imposing the Morgenthau Plan and refused any kind of Marshall Plan for southern Europe, shutting nuclear and coal down.

AOC wants the Morgenthau Plan now for the US ! Looking at that Plan it is exactly the Confederate plan, from the Nashville agrarians. It’s a I’ll make my Stand, whistling Dixie plan.

Interesting now that London supports it (HRM RIIA Chatham House photo-op with AOC) as they supported the Confederates then and Hitler also (Royals all involved).

There is a very true saying, “The countryside does not need the cities, but the cities do need the country”

Snag s that today we see the cities getting bigger, and the countryside getting smaller. population wise.

The thinking in the cities is very different to that n the countryside.

I used to wonder why the USA had a Electorial College, but now I realise that it is in effect what we here in Australia call a “Gerrymander”, a system of giving the folk in the countryside a greater say in governing the country. . It is not democrancy, , but it is necessary if on e wants stability.

That’s why the Democrats don’t want it, Hillary should have won if one talks about the “Will of the people”.

What I do not understand is FDR. I grew up in a time that FDR was my hero, that with the aid of Harry Hopkins, FDR saved the USA from gong Communist during the Great Depression.

So was FDR a good or a bad man. He was unlike his uncle a Democrate, . So were Democrats back then very different to todays ?

Alexander Hamilton Federalist Paper 68 showed why the Electoral College (as is called now) is needed – to stop the tyranny of the majority. FDR saved the US by applying as much as he could the American System of Economics (Henry Carey’s book). Friedrich List applied exactly that to Germany. FDR’s New Deal with the RFC (Reconstruction Finance Corp) worked – AOC’s parody is a deadly attack on FDR and the American System of Economics. The German KfW is modelled on the RFC.
Trump more than once reminded people of this, the first Pres. to mention this since they assassinated McKinley.
This means Trump has enemies at the FED, WallStreet and the City of London – from there comes the endless harassment.
Teddy Roosevelt nominally also a patrician was a disaster. FDR caught polio and emerged from hospital a totally different person.

As all recent campaigns have noted, a campaign based on winning the electoral college is a lot different from a campaign based on winning the popular vote.
Anyone who declares they know who the winner would have been had any past election been a popular vote election is fooling himself, or deliberately trying to fool others.

Anyways, given the poor quality of voter identification in most states (especially heavily Democrat ones), we don’t really know who won the popular vote.
