Comrade Bernie’s Green New Deal Would Essentially Nationalize The U.S. Energy Sector

Hey, this isn’t me saying this (though, having read Comrade Bernie’s GND policy, I completely agree): this is the far left AlterNet, which is all about Trump hatred, holding Trump responsible, and I just got a popup ad asking for money to try and get Democrats to call John Bolton to testify

Bernie Sanders’ Green New Deal plan will nationalize power generation in the US

Bernie Sanders recently released his plan for implementing the Green New Deal. These include such comprehensive goals as transitioning to 100% renewable energy for electricity and transportation by 2030 and decarbonizing the entire economy by 2050 (full details here).

To get there, Sanders plans a number of ambitious projects, including massive and job-creating infrastucture spending and “declaring climate change a national emergency.” The implications of the latter are not entirely spelled out. A number of candidates have proposals that “declare a national emergency” regarding climate change, but not in the same sense that George W. Bush, for example, may have meant had he declared the 9/11 attacks a national emergency (he didn’t, but he could have).

(Excerpts from Comrade Bernie’s plan)

The plan has rightly been called a nationalization of electric power generation. Chris Hayes noted this fact in his recent interview with Sanders, calling it “a federal takeover of the whole thing,” to which Sanders essentially agrees (see video at the top). Other writers have said the same. For example, In These Times, under the headline “Bernie Sanders Calls To Seize the Means of Electricity Production” accurately describes the plan as “moving toward 100% public ownership of power.”

So there really is no doubt. Sanders, if he’s elected, plans to nationalize electricity generation in the U.S.

Yes, there is video at the link. This one

And, of course, climate cultists are excited!

What are the implications of this proposal? A few thoughts:

1. Bernie Sanders is serious about addressing climate change. Simply speaking, Sanders is right. It’s long past time for tinkering around the edges of the problem.

What could possibly go wrong with the Central Government nationalizing the entire energy sector? Also, where are all the Internet folks who told me I was a crazy conspiracy theorist (among other slurs) for noting that the Cult of Climastrology wants to take over the energy sector (among other things)?

Put simply, American voters must be allowed to choose whether or not to address climate change meaningfully, regardless of the possibility that they may choose not to address it at all. An honest conversation is the least we owe voters whose descendants will ultimately thank them or hate them for what they finally decide. Letting voters choose for themselves is called democracy.

Despite the fears of many though, there are reasons for optimism. If voters are given a realistic discussion of the alternatives and a realistic presentation of the way to get there, they could easily choose well. They certainly chose well under FDR, when war raged in Europe and the Imperial Japanese wolf was at the door. It’s at least even odds they would choose as wisely again, when all of nature seems poised to cause their demise.

Really? Climate cultist Thomas Neuburger thinks that the American people will choose to have the government nationalize the energy sector for reals? Remember, again, 68% of Americans do not want to pay $10 a month to “solve” Hotcoldwetdry.

    “This is about candor, honesty,” Biden retorted. “There will be a deductible – in your paycheck … someone making 60 grand with three kids, they’re going to end up paying $5,000 more.”

    Those candidates on stage or rallying their far left socialist base. Those who think that Warren and Bernie are going to give them FREE everything.

    The reality as Biden puts it is that once they are elected you cant Executive Action away student debt or make college free or give medicare for all or abscond with 100 trillion dollars to fix the economy or destroy it more precisely.

    You need congress. You need democrats elected in red districts along with the Senate and if you dont have both branches you have nothing. As the GOP is seeing right now…..Without the house they cant move on much of anything.

    So the reality is that Biden is being honest and the rest are just blowing smoke up the lefts asses. Just like Trump Promised a wall and look how hard its been just to build a wall…. Can you imagine how hard it will be for congress to give free healthcare or free college and forgive student debt????

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH…………good luck with that democrats. Once again they are lying to YOU to get power and get elected.

  2. It worked so well for Venezuela.

    The pattern for socialism is always the same. Loot the stuff that Capitalism built. Socialism is always about theft, never about building productive economies.

      there is a really popular moderate lefty called TimCast Or Tim Pool. He has several Youtube channels and was the co-founders of vox before he started working independently. He is a staunch capitalist and despises the FAR LEFT even though he is a left-libertarian who votes mainly democratic.

      He said he once went to Venezuela to do reporting and needed a cell phone cause his got stolen. He said it took him literally about 8 hours to buy a cell phone. He was led to like a dozen different people who each had like 1/8th of the paperwork and decision-making authority.

      In reality, he said it was how the government gave people jobs. 8 people to do the one-person job. In the end, he got a flip phone that was made in China with Chinese writing on the face.

      The moral of his story was simple. If you want to destroy what America is. Embrace socialism and pretend that WE can make it better than everyone else who has tried.
