16 Apr The Green New Deal & Agenda 21
Back in February, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez introduced House Resolution 109, to create a Green New Deal. This legislation has 91 co-sponsors.
On that same day in the Senate, an identical piece of legislation was introduced by Senator Ed Markey (Senate Resolution 59). That has 12 co-sponsors.
Despite all the co-sponsors, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought it up for a vote, all of the-co-sponsors voted ‘present’ instead of voting for the resolution.
The vote was criticized by Cortez but is that the end of the effort? After all, there’s one individual who’s analyzed this deal in light of the goals of Agenda 21 and he sees numerous connections.
That individual is Tom DeWeese. Tom is the president of American Policy Center. He’s one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence and protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights. He’s the author of ‘Sustainable: The War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals.’
Tom pulled no punches as he began this broadcast by noting that ‘…probably about half of the Green New Deal is already in the works in various ways.’ He described how over the years, there are those who tried to put this in place via very innocent sounding language, claiming it’s voluntary and has nothing to do with the U.N. However, Tom feels that when Cortez rolled this out, it showed exactly where those who support it intend to go.
So just how does the Green New Deal parallel Agenda 21? Tom described how under the Green New Deal there’d be no coal or gas burning as everything will involve alternative energy. What’s worse is that their planned alternatives have shown to be a failure in the sense that wind and solar power don’t produce the amounts of energy that are needed. Relying on these sources would result in energy shortages leading to things like curfews.
Deals like this also affect our food, single family home ownership, and even government. For example, Tom described how we’re seeing the establishment of non-elected, regional councils. These councils are applying for grants that bring these ‘green’ programs into place. Then they systematically eliminate political boundaries.
The process works like this: They’ve picked the environment as the ‘threat’ because the environment doesn’t follow political boundaries. Since rivers, for example, can run through several counties or even states, they use that excuse to claim everyone needs to get together and forget political boundaries. At that point Tom believes you are ceding the elimination of any sort of governing power by those that you elect because those who were elected are then ‘kowtowing’ to these regional councils.
Is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez a ‘created product’? What organizations are involved in promoting this overall agenda? Of those organizations that claim they’re only about environmental protection, can we take them at their word? Is the Green New Deal just a ‘Trojan horse’ that’s really pushing socialism? These questions and more are answered and listeners get their chance to provide input as well.
