‘Green Deal’ voor duurzaam Europa: explosief vat vol peperdure politieke ambities

20-05-20 08:22:00,

De nieuwe Green Deal-routekaart van de Europese Unie moet leiden naar nul broeikasgassen in 2050 en economische voorspoed zonder uitputting van grondstoffen. De verwachte kosten zijn astronomisch: een triljoen euro. Hoe haalbaar zijn de plannen? Wie betaalt en wie profiteert? Dit is het eerste artikel in een serie waarin Hans Wetzels de Green Deal onder de loep neemt.

Het is 11 december 2019, ‘s middags rond twee uur, en er schijnt een waterig zonnetje over het Brusselse Luxemburgplein. Ursula von der Leyen, kersvers aangetreden als voorzitter van de Europese Commissie, gaat er de vergaderzaal binnen van het Europarlement, geflankeerd door haar nieuwe ‘Klimaatcommissaris’ Frans Timmermans. Zij is gestoken in een wit jasje met een subtiele speld van de Europese vlag, hij in een nonchalant openhangend maar stemmig donkerblauw pak. Von der Leyen gaat haar Green Deal aan de wereld presenteren. Het politieke meesterplan dat in 2050 van Europa het eerste klimaatneutrale continent moet hebben gemaakt.

Man op de maan

Nooit eerder zegde een Europese Commissie zo expliciet toe de economie duurzamer te maken. De stakende scholieren van Fridays for Future, de over het continent uitgewaaierde klimaatprotesten van Extinction Rebellion, de gestage groei van groene partijen, maar ook de toenemende droogte, de zorgwekkend snelle insectensterfte, de smeltende gletsjers en de steeds frequentere bosbranden nopen de Europese politieke elite tot actie.

‘Groeimodel op basis van fossiele brandstoffen en vervuiling is niet meer van deze tijd’

Volgens Von der Leyen is de Green Deal dan ook een heus ‘man-op de-maanmoment’. Onder haar leiding moet de CO2-uitstoot drastisch dalen, wordt het oerbos gered, het vervoer elektrisch gemaakt én komen er nieuwe banen bij. De Europese Unie moet wereldleider worden in klimaatvriendelijke technologie en groene financiering. ‘Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat het oude groeimodel, gebaseerd op fossiele brandstoffen en vervuiling, niet meer van deze tijd is,’ zegt een ambitieuze Von der Leyen. ‘De Green Deal is onze nieuwe groeistrategie. Europese burgers zijn al begonnen met het aanpassen van hun leefstijl om de planeet te beschermen. Onze Green Deal maakt duidelijk dat ze daarin niet alleen staan.’

Op het schild

Ursula von der Leyen wordt na de verkiezingen van mei 2019 uit het niets op het schild gehesen als voorzitter van de Europese Commissie.

“Green Energy” – Wind Turbines Are “Piling Up In Landfills,” Can’t Be Recycled – Activist Post


06-02-20 07:29:00,

By Chris Menahan

“Green energy” is just one giant grift operation.

From Bloomberg, “Wind Turbine Blades Can’t Be Recycled, So They’re Piling Up in Landfills”:

A wind turbine’s blades can be longer than a Boeing 747 wing, so at the end of their lifespan they can’t just be hauled away. First, you need to saw through the lissome fiberglass using a diamond-encrusted industrial saw to create three pieces small enough to be strapped to a tractor-trailer.

The municipal landfill in Casper, Wyoming, is the final resting place of 870 blades whose days making renewable energy have come to end. […]

A wind turbine’s blades can be longer than a Boeing 747 wing. But where do they end up when they aren’t in use? Landfills in Iowa, Wyoming and South Dakota https://t.co/tPSRSQINiu

— Bloomberg (@business) February 5, 2020

Tens of thousands of aging blades are coming down from steel towers around the world and most have nowhere to go but landfills. In the U.S. alone, about 8,000 will be removed in each of the next four years. Europe, which has been dealing with the problem longer, has about 3,800 coming down annually through at least 2022, according to BloombergNEF. It’s going to get worse: Most were built more than a decade ago, when installations were less than a fifth of what they are now.

Built to withstand hurricane-force winds, the blades can’t easily be crushed, recycled or repurposed. That’s created an urgent search for alternatives in places that lack wide-open prairies. In the U.S., they go to the handful of landfills that accept them, in Lake Mills, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Casper, where they will be interred in stacks that reach 30 feet under.

“The wind turbine blade will be there, ultimately, forever,” said Bob Cappadona, chief operating officer for the North American unit of Paris-based Veolia Environnement SA, which is searching for better ways to deal with the massive waste. “Most landfills are considered a dry tomb.”

Wind turbines really are the ultimate example of phony “liberal” environmentalism.

They’re highly inefficient (only in the past few years was it realized there’s such a thing as “wind shortages” and “wind droughts”),

Europe’s Green Deal: Same Hysteria, Same Destruction


03-02-20 10:47:00,

Authored by Andrew Moran via LibertyNation.com,

Today’s brand of the left-leaning politician is all about substituting what sounds good for what actually works. Modern politics, whether in the U.S. or Europe, is about taking a chainsaw to everything that produced even a modicum of success to appease the deities espousing progressive orthodoxy. There is no better example of this than fossil fuels, energy sources that have lifted us out of destitution and darkness and given us incredible wealth the world had never witnessed. What is the left interested in doing? Confiscation, cronyism, centralization, and coercion to combat climate change. The European Union will achieve these objectives through the boondoggle-in the-making Green Deal.

What Is The Green Deal?

The European counterpart is a bit more realistic than the American version, aiming for net-zero emissions within 30 years rather than in a decade. But that is probably the best thing you can say about this proposal, which was approved by the European Parliament – some policymakers had requested even greater ambitions to be inserted inside the climate change scheme. Overall, the Green Deal is bad economics that will affect the already dreary conditions of Europe and exacerbate the slowdown.

The Green Deal begins by the European Commission examining every European Union law and regulation and then modifying them to align with the bloc’s new climate objectives. If you thought the E.U.’s regulations were already egregious, just you wait until March 2021 when the bureaucrats will submit a package containing all the statist goodies. At least Great Britain will not have to.

Policymakers want to implement a circular economy, one that emphasizes the sustainability factor in how the continent produces stuff. Its objective is to consume fewer materials and ensure there is more concentration on reusing and recycling.

Like the Green New Deal (GND), the E.U.’s flagship program is to “at least double or even triple” the renovation rate of buildings. Today, this figure stands at about 1%, so bumping up that figure would require a concoction of interventions and mandates to ensure buildings are more efficient.

One provision is to introduce carbon tariffs for nations that refuse to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions at a comparable rate to Europe.

EU spricht vom „Green Deal“ – und lässt sich von Öl-Unternehmen sponsern

Kroatien hat die Ratspräsidentschaft der EU übernommen. Eine der ersten Amtshandlungen ist, heimische Unternehmen zu offiziellen Ausstattern und Sponsoren der EU zu ernennen. Die Praxis ist umstritten, hat aber eine lange Tradition in Brüssel.

German Green Party Urges Allowing 140 Million “Climate Refugees” To Migrate To West


21-12-19 08:26:00,

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

The Green Party in Germany is urging that up to 140 million “climate refugees” should be allowed to migrate to the west and given citizenship.

Political leaders like Claudia Roth are claiming that island states in the Pacific could “completely disappear” and that entire population groups should be allowed to re-locate to the west as a result.

“Citizenship in the receiving country can be an option,” for people existentially threatened by global warming, said Roth

In their proposal, the party cites the World Bank’s estimate that there could be as many as 140 million “climate refugees” flooding into the west from Africa, South Asia, and South America by the year 2050.

Other parties in Germany expressed their opposition, noting that creating the idea of “climate refugees” would increase migratory pressure worldwide.

Germany should “not function as Noah’s ark for the whole world,” remarked FDP general secretary Linda Teuteberg.

The proposal is not likely to sit well with German voters, many of whom have expressed their opposition to mass immigration by voting in large numbers for the right-wing AfD party.

As we previously highlighted, the former director of Germany’s foreign intelligence service has accused Angela Merkel of creating a “security crisis” in Germany as a result of her open border refugee policy.

According to the German government’s own statistics, violent crime in Germany rose by 10 per cent between 2015 and 2016, when the country began accepting large numbers of migrants, many of them young men. More than 90 per cent of the rise was attributable to young male “refugees.”

“Young male refugees in Germany got the blame…. for most of a two-year increase in violent crime,” reported Reuters.

Germany also suffered a mass molestation of women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve 2015, attacks almost exclusively carried out by migrant men.

Given the establishment’s increasingly desperate effort to push the “climate emergency,” primarily by using Greta Thunberg as a poster child, look out for global warming hysteria to be the next excuse as to why the west needs to absorb tens of millions more migrants.

Green Deal: „Europas Mann-auf-dem-Mond-Moment“? Wie von der Leyen den Planet retten will


11-12-19 06:55:00,

EU-Kommissionschefin Ursula von der Leyen hat ihren „Green Deal“ mit der Vision der Mondlandung verglichen. Investitionen von hunderten Milliarden Euro jährlich seien erforderlich. Das Maßnahmenpaket ist hoch umstritten. Vor allem von Seiten der Arbeitgeberverbände kommt harsche Kritik.

„Jemand hat mal gesagt: Das ist Europas Mann-auf-dem- Mond-Moment“, verkündete die neue EU-Kommissionschefin Ursula von der Leyen am Mittwoch in Brüssel.

„Wir haben noch nicht alle Antworten. Wir sind sehr ehrgeizig, aber wir werden auch sehr sorgsam alle Auswirkungen und die nächsten Schritte prüfen.“

Zuvor hatte die neue EU-Kommission den „Green Deal“ beschlossen, ein umfangreiches Gesetzgebungsprogramm mit dem Ziel eines „klimaneutralen“ Europas bis 2050. Konkrete Vorlagen sollen 2020 und 2021 folgen und dann von den EU-Staaten und dem EU-Parlament beraten werden. Geplant ist ein kompletter Umbau von Energieversorgung, Industrie, Verkehr und Landwirtschaft, damit ab 2050 keine neuen Treibhausgase in die Atmosphäre gelangen und die globale Erwärmung gestoppt wird.

​Klimaneutralität bedeutet, dass von 2050 an keine neuen Treibhausgase aus Europa in die Atmosphäre gelangen, um die Erderwärmung – wie im Pariser Klimaabkommen vorgesehen – bei 1,5 Grad zu stoppen. Dafür muss der größte Teil der Klimagase, die zum Beispiel bei Verbrennung von Kohle, Öl oder Gas und in der Landwirtschaft entstehen, vermieden und der Rest gespeichert werden. Zum „Green Deal“ gehört ein Zwischenziel für 2030: Bis dahin sollen die Emissionen um 50 bis 55 Prozent unter dem Wert von 1990 liegen. Bisher hat sich die EU ein Minus von 40 Prozent vorgenommen.

Von der Leyen nannte den „Green Deal“ einen Fahrplan zum Handeln. „Er hat 50 Aktionen bis 2050 für ein klima- und umweltfreundliches Europa“, sagte sie. „Unser Ziel ist, unsere Wirtschaft mit unserem Planeten zu versöhnen und dafür zu sorgen, dass es für unsere Menschen funktioniert.“ Es gehe um die Senkung der Treibhausgase, aber in gleichem Maße auch um die Schaffung neuer Jobs.

Das alte Wachstumsmodell, das auf fossilen Energien und Verschmutzung gründe, habe sich überlebt, fügte sie hinzu. Gefragt sei nun eine Strategie „für ein Wachstum, das mehr zurückgibt als es wegnimmt“. Entscheidend sei, dass beim Wandel niemand im Stich und niemand im Unklaren gelassen werde.

Zusätzlich 260 Milliarden jährlich

Um das Ziel zu erreichen, müsse eine erhebliche Investitionslücke geschlossen werden, heißt es in einer Mitteilung der Kommission.

Is The Nuclear “Green”? “CO2- And Climate Neutral”? – Global Research


30-11-19 07:25:00,

On the 28th of November 2019 the European Parliament in Brussels voted in favor of nuclear energy, because it is defined as CO2- and climate-neutral.

This happened when a resolution proposal for the coming UN Climate Conference in Madrid had to be approved (1). The leader of the Green Parties in the EP, Ska Keller, voted in favor, whereas a majority of the Greens did not, because the nuclear question is the most basic one for green politics, historically speaking. It seems however that this is going to change and a division of the green parties over the issue seems to be inevitable.

This decision was taken on the same day as the declaration about a „European climate emergency“ which was accompanied by another decision about a trillions of € budget for the climate in relation to a „Green New Deal“ and „digitization“ as the major issues of the new European Commission under Ursula von der Leyen who had her very first day as the new President of this Commission in the EP.

What does all this mean? At this point some questions have to be asked:

Since its beginnings in World War II the nuclear question has, first of all, always to do with the military. So, is the military behind the CO2-climate change-theses?

Is the „Green New Deal“ that propagates the change toward a new „green“ civilization globally, related to the interests of the military?

So, are the Green parties who are just now coming to power in Europe and are propagating the same Green New Deal, themselves related to the military, as well?

Do green voters and party members know about these potential relationships?

What is „green“ about that Deal, the military, digitization and nuclear energy?

What does it mean for the credibility of the CO2-thesis that the military joins the chorus of the UN and its IPCC, and at the same time uses its own technologies to manipulate and weaponize the weather, worldwide and for decades, already?

Do the youth movement of Fridays for Future, Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion never mention the military and nuclear weapons, readioactivity, uranium mining and nuclear waste as dangers for the Planet,

The “Green” Illusion Continues: Tesla Crash Victim Can’t Find Anyone To Recycle His Wrecked Car


14-11-19 10:43:00,

It was just over a month ago that we reported on a Tesla accident in Austria that resulted in firefighters needing to use a special container to transport the remains of the vehicle and the battery at the scene of the accident. 

Now, the owner of the vehicle is having trouble finding someone who will properly recycle his wrecked car and its battery. It’s been sitting in one place since the accident and Tyrol reports that “nobody wants to burn their fingers to dispose of the car with its unpredictable 600kg lithium ion battery”. 

The owner, Dominik Freymuth, says he feels “abandoned by the manufacturer”. Every morning he passes by the wreckage of his old vehicle, a stark reminder of being pulled out of his burning vehicle before it was charred to the ground, he says. 

To try and get the car taken care of after the wreck, he reached out to Tesla’s Austrian disposal partner ÖCAR Autoverwertungs. Tesla’s website says “ÖCAR Automobile Recycling has a large network of authorized recycling and disposal partners fully licensed by the Department of the Environment.”

But ÖCAR reportedly has “no permission” to take over Tesla models, according to a spokeswoman for the company. She stated: “I can not give you any information because we have no authorization for Tesla.”

Many disposal companies don’t want to deal with the Tesla batter, because its a “fire hazard” and because you “do not remember where the battery starts and where it stops” – especially after a wreck. 

Martin Klingler, waste disposal expert at the Schwaz environmental company DAKA, said (translated):

“Such a large lithium battery can not be taken over by his company, since one does not even know the mix of dangerous substances inside them. The electric vehicle manufacturers kept the composition of their elixirs top secret so as not to lose their competitive edge. The liquid in which the accident car was cooled by the Walchsee is a dangerously poisonous brew, but now a coveted drop. The Montanuniversität Leoben has already secured samples of it in order to discover the secret of its content.”

Green New Deal and the Climate Movement. Trojan Horses for the Billionaire Class? – Global Research


29-09-19 01:51:00,

“As the oligarchs financed, shaped and largely managed the climate movement – it’s only natural that they alone benefit from it. The power-elites repackaged our oppression as revolution and sold it back to us. By exploiting the innocent youth, which in turn exploited our emotions and fears as a collective populace, we devoured it.  And soon, young Greta, and all the youth they have exploited, will be thrown under the bus.” – Cory Morningstar, from Act IV of the series ‘The Manufacture of Greta Thunberg – with Consent’ [1]


Click to download the audio (MP3 format)

During the week from September 20-27th, an estimated 6 million people in thousands of towns and cities around the world, took part in “climate strikes” intended to spur world leaders into action around the mitigation of climate change. [2]

Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who inspired these mobilizations with her solitary protests outside the Swedish parliament and her uncompromising stance in her public messaging and demeanour, has become an international celebrity. The youngster, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, spoke at Friday’s 500,000 strong mobilization in Montreal, in the Canadian province of Quebec:

“…The numbers are still coming in, but it looks like well over 6.6 million people have joined the Week For Future through strikes on this and last Friday. That is one of the biggest demonstrations in history!

The people have spoken, and we will continue to speak until our leaders listen and act! We are the change! And change is coming!”

We live in a world where over 200 unarmed protesters in Gaza, including 52 children can be killed by Israeli snipers with impunity, as happened last year following the Great March of Return, and where Israel’s economic strangulation of Gaza is having devastating impacts on the people living there. We live in a world where sanctions on countries like Iran and Venezuela are devastating the populace of those counties, and where children die and a major humanitarian catastrophe continues unabated in Yemen under U.S.- backed Saudi military brutality. Where hundreds of millions of children live in extreme poverty.

The Green New Deal: Less About Climate, More About Control


22-08-19 08:08:00,

Authored by Nicolas Loris and Kevin Dayaratna via DailySignal.com,

If someone asked you to describe the Green New Deal, what would you say?

According to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., it’s a “bold idea” that would “create millions of good-paying jobs” and help “rebuild communities in rural America that have been devastated.”

Oh, you thought the Green New Deal was all about fighting climate change? Well, think again.

Turns out it’s a green-glossed Trojan horse designed to increase government control over the economy.

Just ask Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the author of the deal. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said. “We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

Just how much change would the Green New Deal bring to the economy? Put simply, it would bring it to its knees.

We know, because when we tried to use the Energy Information Administration’s National Energy Model to assess how the plan would affect the economy, the model crashed.

The Green New Deal is big on vision, but sparse on details. For example, it calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 60% below 2010 levels by 2030, with the ultimate goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. But it doesn’t say how to get there.

One thing is clear: to meet these goals, Washington would have to force all Americans to reduce their energy consumption and/or switch to “green” energy sources—and fast. And the only way to do that is to impose coercive taxes and regulations.

To assess the economic effects of such a scheme, we started by looking at a carbon tax—the most popular recommendation of those asking government to “nudge” us off of fossil fuels.

Using the Energy Information Administration’s model, we tested to see how high a carbon tax would have to go to meet the Green New Deal’s emission targets. We ratcheted the tax up to $300 per ton, which dropped emissions 58% below 2010 levels—but not until 2050.

That left us far short of reaching the deal’s targets,

Green Revolution: Washington State To Allow Composting Of Human Beings


04-05-19 08:55:00,

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:

1. Washington State will allow human body composting

It doesn’t get much greener than this.

Staking his presidential run on climate change, the Governor of Washington is set to sign a bill legalizing composting of deceased humans.

An especially high percentage of the deceased in Washington are cremated, so this alternative will cut down on carbon emissions.

Instead, family members can pay around $5,500 to turn their loved ones into compost, and use the composted-remains to plant a tree.

Hell, why not throw it right into the vegetable garden. Then your loved ones become a part of you.

Friendly reminder though, soylent green is people.

Click here to read the full story.

2. Satanic Temple gets tax-exempt status

Surely a sign that the end times are nigh, the Satanic Temple has successfully gained tax exempt status like any other religion.

The thing is, they aren’t really all about worshipping Satan.

The church was founded as a bit of a joke. The group is meant to protest the meddling of government and religion.

For instance, if government functions start with a prayer, they want to open with a prayer to Satan. And if a courthouse lawn has a ten commandments statue, they want Lucifer spreading his wings right there beside it.

And now they have forced the government to recognize them as a religion, with all the tax exemptions that come with it.

Click here to read the full story.

3. Laying the groundwork for conscientious objection to taxes

Speaking of interesting tactics to avoid taxes…

Last year a man who refused to pay taxes since 1997 had his case dismissed by a federal court.

He refused to pay because some tax dollars fund abortions which he morally objects to.

But the reason his case got dismissed had nothing to do with that.

The government couldn’t prove he evaded taxes,

USA: “Green Deal” – Von Umfragewerten und “aufgeladenen Fragetechniken” | www.konjunktion.info

Die Zustimmungsraten der Wähler für die Partei Die Grünen ist in den letzten Monaten in Deutschland rasant gestiegen. Auch in den USA unterstützen immer mehr Menschen den neuen “Green Deal”. So sollen nach neuesten Umfragen 80% der US-Amerikaner hinter dieser Politik stehen.

Aber entsprechen die Umfragen der Realität oder wird hier nur wieder im Sinne der verschiedensten Agenden der UN Propaganda betrieben?

Denn unter der Oberfläche solcher Umfragewerte von 80% steckt immer etwas mehr als man auf den ersten Blick vermutet. So wurde zwar die eingangs erwähnte Umfrage von einem Professorenteam der George Mason University in Virginia und der Yale University in Connecticut vorgenommen, aber bei der Umfrage handelte es sich um einen sogenannte “Push Poll”, der so gestaltet ist, dass ausgewählte Befragte sich zugunsten des von den Verfassern formulierten Vorschlags aussprechen.

Der Trick dabei ist die eingesetzte Fragetechnik bzw. Wortwahl. Statt die Befragten direkt zum Thema des “Green Deal” zu befragen, wird den Befragten zuerst eine “flammende Synopsis” für den “Green Deal” präsentiert:

Einige Kongressmitglieder schlagen einen “Green New Deal” für die USA vor. Sie sagen, dass ein Green New Deal Arbeitsplätze schaffen und die Wirtschaft Amerikas stärken wird, indem der Übergang von fossilen Brennstoffen zu sauberen, erneuerbaren Energien beschleunigt wird. Der Deal würde in den nächsten 10 Jahren 100% des Stroms der Nation aus sauberen, erneuerbaren Quellen erzeugen; eine Erneuerung des Energienetzes, der Gebäude und der Verkehrsinfrastruktur des Landes [mit sich bringen]; die Energieeffizienz erhöhen; in Forschung und Entwicklung für grüne Technologien investieren; und Schulungen für Arbeitsplätze in der neuen grünen Wirtschaft anbieten.

(Some members of Congress are proposing a “Green New Deal” for the U.S. They say that a Green New Deal will produce jobs and strengthen America’s economy by accelerating the transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. The Deal would generate 100% of the nation’s electricity from clean, renewable sources within the next 10 years; upgrade the nation’s energy grid, buildings, and transportation infrastructure; increase energy efficiency; invest in green technology research and development; and provide training for jobs in the new green economy.)

“Green Deal”: Kommt es zu offenen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Trump- und Ocasio-Cortez-Anhängern? | www.konjunktion.info


08-03-19 09:20:00,

Im Artikel Brexit: Welche Folgen wird der Brexit für uns alle haben? Der Versuch eines Blicks hinter die Denkweise der Globalisten schrieb ich im Juni 2016 über einen möglichen US-Präsidenten Donald Trump:

Im Lichte der hier geschilderten Schlussfolgerungen gehe ich davon aus, dass der neue US-Präsident höchstwahrscheinlich Donald Trump heißen wird. Trump warnt beständig vor einer Rezession – und mit den einbrechenden Märkten (auch aufgrund des Brexits) wird es dann für den unbedarften Bürger “prophetisch” sein, da sich seine Warnungen bewahrheitet haben.

Natürlich kann man Trump nicht trauen. Und natürlich ist er auch eine kontrollierte Opposition zu Clinton. Aber darum geht es eigentlich nicht. Selbst wenn Trump ein legitimer Anti-Establishment-Konservativer ist, wird sein Eintritt ins Oval Office den Kollaps nicht aufhalten und er wird genauso den IGE dienen wie ein Obama oder Bush oder Clinton. Die internationalen Banken müssen nur den Stecker an EINER Lebenserhaltungsmaßnahme ziehen und das System wird implodieren. Und man kann es dann ganz bequem einen Trump und seinen konservativen Unterstützern in die Schuhe schieben.

Donald Trump - Wikipedia / Michael VadonDonald Trump - Wikipedia / Michael Vadon

Donald Trump – Wikipedia / Michael Vadon

Gleichzeitig warnte ich davor, zu hohe Erwartungen an eine Präsidentschaft Trumps zu haben, da es zahlreiche Szenarien gibt, die von den Internationalisten/Globalisten/Eliten (IGE) benutzt werden könnten, um die konservativen Kräfte nach einem Wahlsieg ins Chaos und in die Konfusion zu stürzen.

Kurz nach den Wahlen verfasste ich den Artikel Ordo ab chao: Es ist angerichtet – Der Wahlsieg Donald Trumps in dem ich mich mit der politischen Linken befasste und davor warnte, wie diese agieren wird, wenn sie mit ihrem eigenen politischen Scheitern konfrontiert wird. Im Ergebnis haben die Linken (und dazu zähle ich in den USA insbesondere die Demokraten) ein sogar noch extremeres Verhalten und eine extremere politische Ideologie an den Tag gelegt, wie damals von mir beschrieben. Zudem deutete ich bereits darauf hin, dass diese Verschiebung ins Extreme dazu führen kann, dass auch die konservativen Kräfte als Antwort auf die Linken in extremere Positionen verfallen könnten.

Aber genau hierin liegt das Problem, wenn man versucht das falsche Rechts-Links-Paradigma Menschen zu erklären, die sich mit diesem Konzept bislang noch nicht beschäftigt haben.

Why Technocrats LOVE The “Green New Deal” : The Corbett Report


16-02-19 08:43:00,

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 Howard Schultz to Queen Pelosi herself, who provides the money quote: “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

Now there is no lack of nonsense to roll our eyes at in the proposed “Green New Deal” legislation,

Retired Green Beret Warns Mainstream Media Is A Tool For Destroy America

A deliberate attempt is being made by the MSM (Mainstream Media) to destroy the remaining fabric of American society and force the country’s disintegration and absorption into a global government.

They don’t have very far to go: since the 1960s, a family-centered culture that was the “hub” of the greatest nation this world has ever seen…that bastion of the family has been eroded and all but destroyed. The replacement “culture” has been one of drug use, pornography, “sloth” within all the generations… young, middle-aged, and elderly, and a fostered unwillingness to take responsibility for anything of value. The country is an entitlement nation that “asks not what you can do for your country, but what can you take from it.” The family is not even referred to in that manner anymore. I have read the term “consumer units” to refer to households, as well as “household groupings.”

Communities… true communities where individuals and families contribute to the overall welfare of the area and each other… are almost nonexistent. This has been replaced with Communism, currently undergoing its “genesis” from the soft form of socialism and the semi-laissez faire authoritarianism that is exemplified by the surveillance state. The socialism will turn into communism, as Lenin (Ulyanov, if you prefer) pointed out to us. A forced “communal” mindset is being blared at us by every weapon the Media has in its arsenal: the radio, newspapers, television, and the Internet/Social Media monster.

Daily, the paradigm is shifted, and the consciousness of the people is being battered with wave after wave of unrelenting actions. No publication better exemplifies the heinous nature of the Media’s intentions than Time Magazine. A Feminist Agenda is being peddled under the guise of “equality,” but in reality it is a sinister operation carried out by nefarious individuals masquereding as “reporters,” “editors,” and “columnists,” meant to polarize groups and to foster a sense of “blame” or “guilt” with every action.

As an example, the September 18, 2017 issue of Time Magazine has an Editorial Page (page 4) by Nancy Gibbs,

“Green” California Is More Reliant On Foreign Oil Than Ever Before

“Green” California Is More Reliant On Foreign Oil Than Ever Before

  • California’s biggest source of crude oil imports is now Saudi Arabia with more than 98 million barrels in 2017.

  • Environmentalists want Gov. Jerry Brown to stop issuing new oil and gas leases.

  • However, that will only make California more reliant on foreign countries.

There’s a growing call for California Gov. Jerry Brown to stop issuing oil and natural gas leases in the state, with some even arguing that all state fossil fuel production should be shuttered.

Yet continuing the current trend of dwindling in-state crude production wouldn’t mean California stops using oil. The state, ranked as one of the “greenest” in the country, would still use lots of oil, it would just come from other countries.

In fact, more than 56 percent of the crude oil received by California refineries were extracted in foreign countries, according to California Energy Commission data. California, once the third-largest oil state, is now more reliant than ever on foreign oil.

The biggest share of California’s oil imports come from Saudi Arabia, which makes up 29 percent of foreign crude flowing into the state. More than 70 percent of foreign oil imports to the state come from OPEC members, including Iraq, Kuwait and Ecuador.

California’s share of oil coming from foreign sources has ballooned since the late 1990s. Decades of state policies restricting drilling played a role, as did declining production in Alaska.

The state legislature also completely banned new offshore drilling leases in 1994, decades after the massive Santa Barbara oil spill. Geological factors also make it expensive to pump out crude compared to other states.

While environmentalists have chastised California for its oil production, the state’s eschewing of crude extraction has contributed to its increased reliance on foreign oil.

California’s oil production has fallen 56 percent since 1985, according to state data. Much of that is being replaced by oil imports from countries without the same level of environmental and public health protections that U.S. agencies require.

“The West Coast used to be the part of the country least dependent on oil imports,

Retired Green Beret: Was Congo’s Ebola ‘Bungle-In-The-Jungle’ A Planned Mishap?

Retired Green Beret: Was Congo’s Ebola ‘Bungle-In-The-Jungle’ A Planned Mishap?

Malthusian theory holds that depopulation (or zero population growth) is a necessity to control a species (namely humanity) that reproduces and consumes natural resources without limits. This is a “New Age” mantra adopted early on by Communists as far back as Marx and Lenin. The ball has been carried successively by Edward House and Woodrow Wilson, and further exacerbated by such “gems” as Kissinger, Bill Gates, Al Gore, and so forth. Much of the public and almost all of the youth (a recent poll taken showed young people prefer Socialism to Capitalism) have fallen for this mantra.

The “problem” for them is how to push it along quickly: war is one answer, and disease is another.

There has been another outbreak of Ebola in the Congo, with WHO (World Health Organization) estimates as many as 1,500 people have been exposed to it. The Daily Mail has a good article on this that was posted on 8/17/18, titled to that effect. It is a good read, as it summarizes with brevity the parameters of the disease itself.

This is how they’re “setting the stage” for this planned “mishap” tied in to the recent outbreak. Read this excerpt very carefully to see the hidden agenda:

The World Health Organization said on Friday [8/17/18] that at least 1,500 people had potentially been exposed to the deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s North Kivu region, where fear of local militia is preventing aid workers from reaching some areas. But it is expected more people to become infected and could not be sure that it had identified all chains by which the virus is spreading in the eastern part of the country beset by militia violence. The region is haunted in particular by the Allied Defence Forces, a Ugandan Islamist rebel group blamed for hundreds of civilian deaths over the past four years.

Now this is setting the script: the valiant doctors and aid workers are unable to break the flow and transmission of the disease because of those pesky Islamic rebels…
