Ever wonder why Bernie Sanders would approve a bill that even HE says it won’t do the thing its name says it will do? Simple — he knows the REAL purpose of the bill … and loves it.
The left gets angry with Republicans Repbublicans do what we say we are going to do, but never seem to mind when Dems do things they explicitly promised they would NEVER do.
Remember how everyone lost their mind when Trump moved the embassy to Jerusalem, despite every President since Clinton promising to do exactly that? Trump kept that promise, and they raged. Just like they did with the wall.
Meanwhile, Biden made explicit promises that he was running as a moderate, NOT a socialist. Remember when he said this?
“If you could address our camera directly, talk to the voters that are worried about socialism and you raising taxes,” Murray asked.
“First of all, I guarantee, a promise, I’ve never broken my word, anyone making less than $400,000 will not see one single penny in their tax raised,” Biden said.
“Number two, I beat the socialist. That’s how I got elected. That’s how I got the nomination,” Biden added, referencing his overwhelming defeat of Sanders following a strong showing by Sanders in several early states.
“Do I look like a socialist?” Biden continued. “Look at my career, my whole career. I’m not a socialist.” — Mediaite
That was enough to comfort many suburban voters that they were making the ‘safe’ choice. They were relieved that they had ‘dodged the Bernie bullet’ with a ‘moderate’ in his place.
Only after the swearing-in ceremony did we see the ‘big reveal’ that Joe Biden has no interest in ‘ruling’ us as a moderate.
Joe immediately pulled HARD to the left and went so woke that he made some Democrats uneasy. All of the latest hyper-divisive partisan policies he could find were squeezed into every conceivable issue.
Then Manchin and Schumer unveiled the Inflation Reduction bill. We remind you that even Bernie won’t concede it has anything to do with inflation.
“Madam President, I want to take a moment to say a few words about the so-called inflation reduction that we are debating this evening,” Sanders said on the Senate floor on Saturday night. “And I say so-called, by the way, because according to the CBO, and other economic organizations that study this bill, it will, in fact, have a minimal impact on inflation.”
Sanders went on to criticize the bill by saying that it does not address childhood poverty, income inequality, or the “dysfunctional” healthcare system in the United States.
Sanders explained that the bill “turns its back on the working parents of this country and our children.” –FoxNews
If this bill failed to meet Bernie’s demands on so many fronts, why would he even dream of supporting it? Simple. The agenda it DID advance had nothing to do with inflation. It was all about the environmental policies.
Remember when the Green New Deal was voted on in Congress and NOBODY supported it? They were lying to us. They loved the agenda, but understood it was very unpopular at the time, so they pretended to hate it.
This was 2019: Senate Votes 57-0: AOC’s GND Is DOA
But now Joe Biden has enough votes to push more or less whatever the hell he wants through the House and Senate. He’s going for broke. Anything he couldn’t accomplish by fiat will be done using reconciliation bills to force unwanted policies down our throats.
There’s something we need to keep in mind… until she was elected, AOC was never a Democrat. She was part of a group called Democratic Socialists of America.
A description of their platform was included in several ClashDaily pieces we have written, including this one: Hey Bernie: Why Does Your ‘Democratic Socialism’ Look So Much Like Lenin’s Communism?
Here’s a taste:
Like most socialist organizations, DSA believes in the abolition of capitalism in favor of an economy run either by “the workers” or the state — though the exact specifics of “abolishing capitalism” are fiercely debated by socialists.
“The academic debates about socialism’s ‘meaning’ are huge and arcane and rife with disagreements, but what all definitions have in common is either the elimination of the market or its strict containment,” said Frances Fox Piven, a scholar of the left at the City University of New York and a former DSA board member.
In practice, that means DSA believes in ending the private ownership of a wide range of industries whose products are viewed as “necessities,” which they say should not be left to those seeking to turn a profit. According to DSA’s current mission statement, the government should ensure all citizens receive adequate food, housing, health care, child care, and education. DSA also believes that the government should “democratize” private businesses — i.e., force owners to give workers control over them — to the greatest extent possible.
What are the chances that when Joe Biden was trying to pull a fast one on Americas by sneaking in critical elements of AOC’s Green New Deal that AOC was, herself sneaking in some OTHER agenda?
We need not wonder. Her own chief of staff let the cat out of the bag.
Joe thinks that by being a President who serves as a Trojan Horse for the Green New Deal he’s saving the world from warming.
The joke’s on him (AND us). Joe may think his grand contribution to history is an environmental plan, but as ClashDaily reported in 2019, the Green New Deal was really never about the environment. Environmental policy was always just a means to an end. We know because the guy serving has AOC’s original chief of staff during the time the Green New Deal was crafted plainly said so.
Chakrabarti let the cat out of the bag in a recent extensive profile in the Post Magazine. According the report, Chakrabarti told anaide for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee(D), a Presidential Candidae, that his boss’s Green New Deal ‘wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.’ ‘Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?’ Chakrabarti says, ‘Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy-thing’ You can’tget much more revoutionary than that.
Conservatives have long claimed that with the end of the Cold War, Soviet Sympathizers kept their old goals of pushing socialism, but swapped out one movement for another.
Someone coined the term ‘watermelon’ to describe it, meaning enviro ‘Green’ on the outside but Commie Red on the inside.
Here is AOC’s chief of staff admiting we’ve been right all along, while the President who claims to have ‘defeated’ the Socialists in his party just signed the entire country away to their agenda.
Only one question remains… was Joe merely being a useful idiot or was he in on the con?
