Bestselling Third Wave Feminist, author and journalist, Naomi Wolf has spent most of her professional life as a darling of the Liberal establishment but she is its rare denizen who is more committed to the truth than to the approval of her peers.
Wolf’s latest venture is called the Daily Clout, which makes tabled legislation easier to understand for the average citizen. In this video, she breaks down the Green New Deal, promoted by Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and so far supported by Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker an Beto O’Rourke.
Wolf gives us an excellent analysis of the Green New Deal, which she suspects might be a dialectical setup where “You get the same old power elites owning everything,” complaining that some of its ideas are gifts to “private sector hyper-elite stakeholders, without any kind of oversight from the people of the nation.”
Reading the language of the 11-page Googledocs document, entitled, “DRAFT TEXT FOR PROPOSED ADDENDUM TO HOUSE RULES FOR 116TH CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES”, she tells us, “This is not legislation…this is not delivering a bill to you or a new law. It is delivering a new form of power…It sets the stage for draft legislation to be written by people who weren’t elected to do it.” In other words, the committee of appointees that this proposal forms will entirely circumvent the will of the American people.
The language of this proposal seeks to take over the entire economy and a specific statement, “To draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and oceans,” refers to patented, experimental, carbon sequestration geoengineering technologies owned by venture capitalists in Silicon Valley.
Wolf has been reporting on “SCoPEx”, the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment and she says the proposal’s language represents a gigantic allocation of the nation’s resources to these new, experimental technologies that are owned by non-transparent Silicon Valley companies like Intellectual Ventures.
“I’m very familiar with this because of the reporting I’ve done on the influence of Silicon Valley and their owning of the tech and IP for geoengineering and their pushing of a similar bill, which passed by Zoe Lofgren’s (D-CA) sponsorship, that created a kind of private weather industry.”
She adds that this language: “To promote economic and environmental justice and equality,” indicates that, “It’s not just about saving the planet, it folds in very intensive proposals and programs in the name of economic equality. I like economic equality. I think our country needs more of it…but it hands over the resources, the allocations, the execution of ending those income disparities to this committee of these 15 people, who are not elected by you for this committee.
“What worries me about this, as an American,” Wolf says, “is that we have that language. It’s called the Constitution of the United States. It guarantees equality for all. So, Paragraph 6 basically re-writes the Constitution…I’m a feminist and I’m anti-racist but…it worries me that these 15 people are deciding what is ‘racial justice’, what is ‘gender justice’, what is ‘regional justice’, what is ‘economic justice’, what is ‘social justice’ – that’s not what we elected them for and that’s not the way our government is supposed to work.”
Wolf says she wants some kind of Green New Deal “yesterday” but at the outset, she sees a great deal of problems with this proposal. What it looks like to me is that some Silicon Valley geoengineering firms want Ocasio-Cortez to tax the American people at up to 70% to pay them to spray us with chemtrails and to re-write the Constitution. No, thanks!
