Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff just admitted something very OMINOUS about the Green New Deal

The Chief of Staff to AOC has just revealed something very ominous about the Green New Deal. Well I say ‘just’, because we’re just now learning about it. But in actuality, this was revealed back in May in a meeting between Chakrabarti and the climate director for Gov. Jay Inslee, who is running for president. I’ve bolded the revelation in case you don’t have the time to read the rest:

WASHINGTON POST MAGAZINE – On a Wednesday morning in late May, emissaries of two of the strongest political voices on climate change convened at a coffee shop a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol. Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), was there to meet Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is running for president almost exclusively on a platform of combating global warming. A newly released plank of Inslee’s climate change agenda had caught the attention of Chakrabarti and his boss, who had tweeted that Inslee’s “climate plan is the most serious + comprehensive one to address our crisis in the 2020 field.” Pleased by the positive reception from the demanding Green New Deal wing of the climate struggle, Ricketts had set up this meeting with Chakrabarti to establish a personal connection and share approaches to climate advocacy.

“Congrats on the rollout,” Chakrabarti told him as they sat down. “That was pretty great.”

“Thank you again for the kudos you guys offered,” said Ricketts. “We wanted to be pace-setting for the field, and I think we’re there now. … I want to ask you for input … in addition to hearing what you guys are working on.”

This is the revelation from Chakrabarti:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”



It continues:

“Yeah,” said Ricketts. Then he said: “No.” Then he said: “I think it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s dual. It is both rising to the challenge that is existential around climate and it is building an economy that contains more prosperity. More sustainability in that prosperity — and more broadly shared prosperity, equitability and justice throughout.”

Chakrabarti liked the answer. “The thing I think you guys are doing that’s so incredible is … you guys are actually figuring out how to do it and make it work, the comprehensive plan where it all fits together,” he said. “I’d love to get into a situation where everyone’s trying to just outdo each other.” But Chakrabarti couldn’t help adding: “I’ll be honest, my view is I still think you guys aren’t going big enough.”

Ricketts seemed unfazed by the critique. “Well, you know, we’re not done. When it comes to a nationwide economic mobilization, there’s more to come on this front, for one. And other key components we’re going to be rolling forward speak to some of the key justice elements of this … ensuring every community’s got a part of this.”

Radical socialism. Redistribution of wealth from the rich to the non-rich. Super high taxes. The exact formula to drive America’s rich people away and tank the economy.

This is what the Green New Deal is really all about. Climate Change is just the grease on the skids that get us to socialism. That’s all it is and that’s pretty much what Chakrabarti is admitting.

As Rich Weinstein put it…

  1. This is an article everyone who is interested in the future of our country SHOULD READ! It lists all the groups that are working together NOW, to take over the future of the DEMOCRAT party. And it WILL NOT BE the party of your fathers and mothers. They are the Socialists and Communists who have signed up to work TOGETHER.

    How 57,000 Socialists and Communists Are Planning to Take Over the Democratic Party

    In a move that could have major implications for American politics, the leading socialist and communist organizations in the United States have formally allied to increase their infiltration and manipulation of the Democratic Party.

    Communist Party USA (CPUSA) leader John Bachtell partially explained the new strategy in a pitch to Party members to attend an online webinar that was held on May 23, 2018. According to Bachtell, the webinar would feature a panel of representatives from the

    1. Communist Party USA (CPUSA),
    2. Democratic Socialists of America (DSA),
    3. Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO),
    4. LeftRoots,
    5. Left Inside/Outside Project and others.

    The event was sponsored by a group called the: Left Inside/Outside Project, which is the idea of “building power inside and outside the Democratic Party.”

    The organization began shortly after the 2016 election as a response to the presidency of Donald Trump.

    Bachtell claimed that CPUSA “is collaborating with several left groups and progressive activists to promote unity and coalition building.

  2. The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is infiltrating the Democratic Party across the country.

    Communists, some openly, some secretly, are working in Democratic campaigns, holding Democratic Party leadership positions, and even running for public office on the Democratic Party ballot line.

    The communists also are pushing their policies inside the Democratic Party, to the point that it’s almost impossible to distinguish between the CPUSA and Democratic Party programs. Many comrades also work closely with influential congressmembers or U.S. senators.

    The CPUSA supports China, Cuba, Venezuela, and the Russian Communist Party—all enemies of the United States. The CPUSA still advocates for the “overthrow of the capitalist class” in this country, yet the Democrats do absolutely zilch to keep the communists out of their party.

    CPUSA infiltration of the Democratic Party is widespread—it effects every region where the communists have a significant presence.

    The Democratic Party knows the identity of most of their communist members. They do nothing about it. They do more than turn a blind eye; they welcome the revolutionaries into their party.

    The Democrats have spent the last two years bashing President Donald Trump for having ties to Russia. Yet the Democrats are willing to tolerate pro-China communists actively working within their own party.

    By allowing communists to stand for office on their ticket, Democrats are cheating the American voter. By allowing communists to work closely with Democratic congress members and senators, they are endangering national security.

  3. Is anyone surprised? Their goal is to tank the Economy and remake it into their image of socialism.

  4. Inslee should stick to screwing up Washington. His challenge is to get Boeing to move its mfr plants and Microsoft to move its offices.

  5. fwiw
    govt run healthcare isn’t about healthcare…it’s also a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thingy…

  6. Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff just admitted something very OBVIOUS about the Green New Deal

    fixed it for you

  7. Don’t you love it when Lefties are so stupid they confess their own duplicity? Is it arrogance, or just stupidity? Either way, I love it when they chew their own feet off trying to get out of what they just admitted. So entertaining.

  8. It’s working. I see more and more friends of mine who have been staunchly conservative people all their lives now being indoctrinated to GW. They are concerned about the floods, mudslides, fires, etc. and are listening to their college age grandchildren who have been indoctrinated and are spreading the contagion.

    1. Tell them that you’ve survived nuclear annihilation, pollution, global cooling, overpopulation, global warming, the hole in the ozone layer, acid rain, Y2K and numerous other imminent threats and that you think that you’re going to survive climate change.

    2. Trust me, the amount of grandparents being indoctrinated by their grandchildren is negligible. Sounds like you’re talking about Californians and, well, need I say more?

  9. Marxists hiding behind pretense to cover for radical policy implementation? Color me shocked. Climate change is nothing but an anti-capitalist agenda.

  10. I would rather take my chances that my life, house, retirement, investments, etc will be swept away by the slim possibility of climate change than the absolute fact and certainty that they will be swept away by socialism.

    I didn’t make that up, but am paraphrasing something I had read.

  11. These people don’t seem to realize that novels like “1984” and “Atlas Shrugged” are cautionary tales not “how to” manuals. The ending for their ignorant stupidity would still be the same as it was in those books because those are the facts of the matter. But they just have to double down on suicidal stupidity to try over and over again to prove that the premises and endings in those book were only mere opinion and not concrete outcomes. They definitely ARE the mentally insane that Einstein spoke of.

  12. I didn’t need Chakrabarti to confirm this…although it is telling that they are no longer trying to hide it.

  13. Gee, I don’t think I could have figured this one out on my own. Why do we have to have these people confirm their motive? We know what it is. Anyone that took the Green New Deal seriously as a way to deal with climate change needs to have their head examined. The only people that would ever been manipulated by this are the idiots that voted for AOC in the first place, and if you are the Chief of Staff to that moron, let me suggest, you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Liberals used to be pretty clever about their subversion, and now they just come out and tell you how they are going to screw you over and people still vote for them. It’s amazing to me. Other than the promise of handouts, which they can’t actually deliver, I don’t really understand why anyone has any interest in what that despicable party is selling.

  14. The idiots in the picture look like they smell and are in need of a flea dip, delousing and a hot, soapy shower.

  15. When politicians set about the business of “…figuring out how to make [an economy] work…” while they set about dismantling, by force of arms because there’s just no other way to do it, then it is time for everyone to pay rapt attention.

    Those that actually make an economy work–the producers, the entrepreneurs, the investors, the innovators–WILL be the losers because those who do NOT do any of those things but expect to benefit from the results of those things will be calling the shots. If you are concerned about IP rights then you can, pretty much, forget about that because ALL property rights will be subsumed by the state “For The Greater Good”. Of whom? Did I hear you ask? Well, of course, those holding the reins and controlling the levers of power. SCREW EVERYBODY ELSE.

    Chakrabarti’s hero and role model, Subhas Chandra Bose, should be the give-away here. He models himself on Bose, despite all the high-minded bullsh*t he spouts suggesting he’s an affable, serious family man who reveres his ancestors. He’s every bit as affable and avuncular as Pol Pot or Mao Zedong or Bose’s personal idol, Adolph Hitler.

    Google this guy and Bose and learn all you can about him. He may well be, at this moment, the most dangerous man in America, a title I’m certain he would happily claim and embrace.

  16. The green new deal is a cure worse than the disease.

    I’d rather have global climate change than communism.

    1. Indeed. IF, and it’s a helluva big IF, global climate change is causer by human activity (HIGHLY unlikely), run-away climate might be bad or it might not, depending on where you live. But the communism sought by Chakrabarti and his allies would be a literal hell for everyone but those in power, not all that different from what Dante describes.

  17. As if conservatives didn’t already know that it’s a transfer of wealth intended to implement a socialistic takeover.

      1. I read an article on American Thinker probably 10 years ago which referred to it as the “de-industrialization of America”. Both are succinct encapsulations.

      2. I read an article on American Thinker probably 10 years ago which referred to it as the “de-industrialization of America”. Both are succinct encapsulations.

  18. It’s working. I see more and more friends of mine who have been staunchly conservative people all their lives now being indoctrinated to GW. They are concerned about the floods, mudslides, fires, etc. and are listening to their college age grandchildren who have been indoctrinated and are spreading the contagion.

  19. The hard thing is determining which people actually believe in climate change along with it’s solutions and which people only use it as a tool for economic change (socialism). It doesn’t really matter because they are both equally as dangerous but….

    I’m on the fence when it comes to AOC. Originally I thought she actually believed her own nonsense, that the planet will die in ten years if we don’t implement economy crippling policies. But now I’m leaning towards her being a lying manipulating politician that doesn’t believe a word she says and only uses it for a tool. It makes me look at her differently. Instead of looking at a gullible fool I’m looking at a diabolical con-artist.

    1. AOC is a puppet, propped up by her handlers. What she obviously believes in is power and wants more of it.

      1. Seems to be the case.

        I’m glad she’s not my puppet. I wouldn’t want to put my hand up……

    2. She is neither. She’s an ignoramus who, despite sporting one or more degrees in economics and international relations, is ignorant of both. She’s an actress that auditioned for the role specifically to run in the Primary against the man she unseated. She was chosen for two reasons: (1) she’s attractive, perky, committed to the cause and reasonably articulate and (2) Chakrabarti and his co-conspirators KNEW that her opponent would not take her seriously and would not mount a serious primary campaign to defend a nomination that he was certain was in the bag for him. He misunderstimated her ability to garner primary votes. She won her seat unopposed in the general election. Perhaps she will get primaried next time ’round and her brief but brilliant career in politics will come to an ending as abrupt as its beginning.

  20. These guys are like little Wesley Mouch’s, the character from Atlas Shrugged who starts out as an “incompetent lobbyist,” but is feigning incompetence to ingratiate himself with more powerful politicos and later establishes himself as the economic dictator.

    The comparison to professional swindler, con artist, and propagandist Jonathan Gruber is very apt…this is the only way they can seize and consolidate power.

    1. Yes. As Lenin said, “Socialized medicine is the keystone in the arch of the socialist state.”

  21. The Cold War began far earlier than most people believe and it still has not ended.

    If enough Americans accept this path there will be civil war and death on a scale no one wants to believe possible. Your bunkers and guns and food rations won’t save you if we’re not better organized and united.

    If these people take the US there will be no place on this Earth that will be safe. “Bugging out” to escape will not be an option.

    1. Prepping is, for the most part, a racket. I’m modestly prepared for a natural or social disaster, but when the SHTF, no one will be safe.

      1. Agree. You can only be the Boy Scout and “be prepared” so much before the world rolls over on you. After that, it’s prepare for Jesus.

      2. Agree. You can only be the Boy Scout and “be prepared” so much before the world rolls over on you. After that, it’s prepare for Jesus.

        1. Yeah, if the Yellowstone supervolcano goes up, there’s going to be a whole lot of crispy freeze dried beans.

  22. “Radical socialism. Redistribution of wealth from the rich to the non-rich. Super high taxes. The exact formula to drive America’s rich people away and tank the economy.”

    I’d go a step further, it’s communism. It’s about complete government control over every facet of our life.

    1. Communism actually calls for an absence of government. Marx asserted that socialism was the vehicle to achieve Communism. It’s nothing but a pipe dream. It’s a bait and switch for socialism. It’s always been socialism that is the real enemy and yet these sick bastards have somehow managed to make everyone think that socialism is less tyrannical and more friendly than Communism. Communism is the socialist’s fairytale that many have simply given up telling in favor of stopping at socialism, which makes sense because Communism is a destination that can never be reached and its narrative usefulness has been worn out. It’s always been socialism that is the great evil and it’s here in the US and a greater threat than ever.

        1. Thanks. I’m really worried about where we’re headed and how well Marxists have masked themselves from public scrutiny.

  23. Anyone who couldn’t see that was blind. Of course, that’s what the whole climate agenda is about – before AOC came on the scene. This is what they want to do to us. They just didn’t want it done so blatantly. They’ve been busily indoctrinating kids for decades now. One day they’ll get to the point of bringing it to fruition.

        1. Correction: Many Americans are simply stupid. How or why they got there is up for discussion but stupid, they are.

          1. I think that’s an effect of willful ignorance and apathy.

            Their inability to name the Vice President, or identify the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, or locate Iran on a map isn’t because they’re stupid. It’s because they don’t care to learn. And worse, when it comes to social issues or current events, they’re willing to be misled.

            1. “they don’t care to learn. And worse, when it comes to social issues or current events, they’re willing to be misled.”

              The definition of stupid. 2019 version.

              1. Nah. Stupid is willing, but unable. The lesson is just completely lost on them.

                This is unwilling. That’s a whole lot worse than mere stupidity.

        2. Or, regarding disciples of the Great Climate Change Hoax, maybe they just have their heads up their butts.

        3. Or, regarding disciples of the Great Climate Change Hoax, maybe they just have their heads up their butts.

  24. This is why Al Gore, after making the global warming movie “An Inconvenient Truth”, bought a 30 million dollar mansion a couple feet above sea level. His movie predicted that in a little over a decade sea levels would rise at least ten or so feet, I believe. Now, why would you invest that substantial amount of money into something that would be under water in no time flat? Because he knew it was BS. Remember the “carbon credits” he was pushing? Yeah, his movie was pure propaganda and not about the climate. He was going to get rich on the new economy him and his elite friends were trying to bring forth. It didn’t work then but he damn sure poisoned enough minds to one day bring it to fruition.

  25. Cloward and Piven! These two radicals theorized that if they could collapse the economy then it would be the Radical left’s chance to rebuild the US into a socialist model! The people who voted for these Marxist are useful idiots!

    1. He is definitely her handler, he auditioned and interviewed her, not the other way around.

  26. The thing is, when the Democrats had a chance to vote on it not a single one did. None of this will ever happen, not Medicare for all, not Green New Deal, not reparations, none of it because the commiecrats know it will end their party. They have to pretend they are doing something to hold on to their commie base. We will fighting over whats left of Obamacare for years but thats it.

    1. I think you’re wrong. The pathway to what they’re pushing has accelerated quickly. The younger generations are on board, full throttle. They aren’t being taught anything else but victimhood and socialism. Groupthink. It’s taking hold and will fully realize itself once our generations die off.

      1. That’s what I’m seeing that’s going on. Our younger generation is being taught that they should get a free ride through life. Crying closets and all. SMH

      2. That’s what I’m seeing that’s going on. Our younger generation is being taught that they should get a free ride through life. Crying closets and all. SMH

      3. I think we will still be here with the speed they are traveling. Each State that is nuts is going full throttle on everything…We live in Wa. state .

        1. I almost moved there a couple times. The last time was a couple years ago. Decided it was a no go. Based purely on my daughter. I wouldn’t be able to afford to put her in a Christian private school given the cost of living. No way will I put her in public schools in Washington state. Way to progressive.

          1. The schools usually go buy what you can afford and you know, there are wonderful homeschool programs now…you no longer have to be home all the time teaching your child…they have networks, the kids socialize with each other. That is what I would do if I still had kids in school. We live across the street from the senior high, middle school, elementary and pre school. It used to be a good Christian mostly community and school. Now it’s a gun free zone with the big boys in Wa. State controlling all the schools. Most of the teachers are young enough where they have all been brainwashed. We had better get hold of our education system Now. It only gets worse if we don’t correct the direction.
            If Trump loses, we can kiss another democratic election (what’s left) goodbye.

      4. Much of that is true, though I see glimmers of hope here and there. Typically the younger generation does tend to be more liberal due to their naivety and lack of real world experience, then move to the right the older they get. Only time will tell if that holds true with this generation. The progressives are certainly playing the long game, and they are decades ahead of us.

    2. I think you’re wrong. The pathway to what they’re pushing has accelerated quickly. The younger generations are on board, full throttle. They aren’t being taught anything else but victimhood and socialism. Groupthink. It’s taking hold and will fully realize itself once our generations die off.

    3. I disagree. It’s like the Johnny Cash song, “One Piece at a Time.” They have preferred to slowly dismantle the country. Apparently, there are some people who have run out of patience. They have already captured the minds of most of the children as well as generations before them. That’s a key part for their plans.

      1. I heard that Cash song on my local station yesterday, it’s one of my favorites.

  27. That’s why we call these filth “watermelons.”

    They’re green on the outside and deep commie red on the inside.

  28. Chakrabarti is not only an arrogant crook and chief of staff but plays a major role within the group “Justice Democrats” that was in charge of organizing an audition to find useful idiots like Ocasio, Omar, Rashida etc. Justice Democrats was created by George Soros. Sandy is George’s Girl and let’s call her that to avoid saying Ocasio-Cortez-Maduro-Chavez-Castro-Pinochet-Videla…………
    Ocasio receives every morning an order to write or say something stupid either via Twitter, TV or infront of a Walmart’s fence trying to make us believe that she is at the Border. Ocasio is one of those women who can cry without tears and quack whatever is told to with or without her bloody lipstick.

  29. Mark was spot on tonite…hear his podcast if you didn’t listen today. The only way this climate change, warming, cooling takes hold is be blaming humans (mostly white people lately). You can’t put this on the planets or the oceans or the polar bears etc. they have nothing the Tyrannical wackos want. No amount of money from us will “Fix” the climate as it doesn’t need fixing at all. Get the countries who pollute to fix theirs..and good luck with that..I’m doubting China will listen…

  30. There’s no difference between this and the Paris Accord. Merkel told Trump that he had to stay in the Paris Accord because it was the key to globalization—a big change in this economic thing. No matter how it’s packaged, it’s all for the exact same purpose.
