Deep Dive on Justice Democrats

This morning, Grandma in Texas linked a tweet which had a video linked: The Brains Behind AOC, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez  which has been viewed over 2.5 million times. In sharing the link across other venues, I found another SECOND part to the video, also excellent…. makes correction to the first video, and is jaw dropping in it’s revelations.
Link is here: The Brains Behind AOC Part II
As is common in the age of Trump, we learn there is a great deal of subversion behind the scenes and most Americans are oblivious. Hence, the deep dive today. Can’t wait until the forum here, Q Treepers, begin to add information and plug in other data points. Please add data as you find it, and we will update. Thank you.
First, we need to know the players, the people and their organizations to track. While new spotlight has landed on Saikat Chakrabarti, the real top of the operative pyramid is Zack Exley.


Back in 2013, Zach had an idea he pitched called “Brand New Congress”/”Justice Democrats, which are really both the same thing. In a nutshell, it called for throwing out the establishment leaders and running “500 Elizabeth Warrens – as a slate” to accomplish their radical mission. Zack Exley explains it in his own words, starting at 4:45 in the video linked here: Link Important to note, Politico describes Saikit Chakrabarti as being the founder of “Brand New Congress” two years AFTER the Bernie campaign in a glowing puff piece found here Link to Politico , but we have Zack, on audio, talking about it in 2013.
Shocking, right? Oh, but that’s just the beginning. In fact, Zach has always talked about the same radical ideas. Take a look at his Wiki page: Link
Summary from Zack Exley’s background. Know this man and know him well.

  1. Zack Exley started as a Union Organizer and Computer Programmer, according to Neal, Terry. Nov 29, 1999, The Washington Post, p, A2
  2. In 2000, to protest BushV.Gore Exley used a website to allow citizens to self-organize more than 100 protests around the United States . Link  
  3. Exley was Organizing Director at MoveOn.org during the group’s campaign to prevent the Iraq War, and during its controversial involvement with the Dean campaign.
  4. Exley moved on to the Kerry Campaign, Director of Online Communications and Organizing
  5. He also worked overseas, in the UK, to help the Labour Party in 2005. The Independent (UK), “No 10 in new dirty tricks row over role of US ‘garbage man’,” February 27, 2005.
  6. We lose track of Exley during the ’08 campaign cycle (which is very odd), but he shows up again in 2010 as Chief Revenue Officer for Wikimedia from 2010-2013, and worked in contracted fundraising consultation until 2017 (which means he has direct relationship with donors).
  7. Exley worked for Thoughtworks, IT consulting, based out of Chicago, 6000 employees and locations all over the world. Link
  8. Exley co-founded, with Judith Freeman, the “New Organizing Institute” which trained Dem activists in social media and tech platforms – dissolved in 2015 Link Donors were Open Society, Bauman Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Atlantic Philanthropies (worthy of another deep dive). Lot of activist names here worthy of tracking and the org was shuttered in a major controversy.
  9. In August of 2015, he joined the Bernie Sanders campaign, Politico reported, as a senior advisor responsible for digital communications.
  10. Exley is now associated with the Justice Democrats.

Interesting that Zack’s public persona never includes info about his family (wife/kids/parents/siblings = nothing). Well, our Coyote genealogy researcher, Aubergine, spent some time on Zack Exley. This is what she found.

Zack’s mom Alma is deceased. She was an educator; there is a scholarship for “persons of color” in her name in Connecticut.
His dad is Elwood “Woody.” I found a FB page for him. He just looks like an average liberal old guy. His father, also Elwood, was an architect in PA from what I can find.
Elwood owns a company called Exley Communications, LLC in Connecticut, est. in 2015. I can’t find out anything about the company. He is 79 now; that’s pretty old to establish a company four years ago, but who knows?
His sister Alexandra got married in 2007. She was at the time the director of information resources at the Young Survival Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to helping young adults affected by breast cancer. This was probably because her mother died of breast cancer in 1995 at age 52.
Zach also has a FB page. First thing on it was about Alex Rojas on CNN. Lots of lefties in his friends list, people working for Cory Booker, ACORN, Bernie Sanders, etc. I could spend a week looking at people from that list. I find it odd that his FB stuff is so accessible.
It looks like Zack grew up in the standard liberal family to me. Activism, scholarships for people of “color,” etc.

While Exley and others work on the “idea” of overthrowing Congress, Exley and Becky Bond wrote a book together called “Rules for Revolutionaries” in 2016. Becky heads an org called Realjusticepac.org which is all about installing radical District Attorneys all over the country. The organization’s mission ( Link )  is to “Elect Prosecutors who will fix our broken criminal justice system.” Sound familiar? Becky is the FIRST person listed as part of the team for this PAC and here’s what they have to say about Becky Bond:

BECKY BOND

Becky served as senior advisor to the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign and is the co-author of “Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything.” She was formerly the president of CREDO SuperPAC and political director of CREDO Mobile. (The whole thing needs another deep dive) As BAM points out, the success of Becky Bond and the radical DA program can be found in San Antonio, where, according to the candidate, “It was just impossible to overcome a million dollars in NY money.” Link
Here’s Becky and Zack together.
 
Zach Exley and Bonds
Guess who else is on the team list for Becky Bond’s PAC. Wait for it……… Shaun King. Yeah, THAT Shaun King. The white guy who pretends to be bi-racial and went to Morehouse College, President of their SGA, and won the Oprah Winfrey Scholarship. We all thought he was half-black. But no….. He’s still very involved in “Civil Rights” activism. Harry Lime, our contributor found Shaun King yesterday…..

Praises Antifa Terrorist Willem Van Spronsen as Hero – Compares Him to Abolitionist John Brown Link

Shaun King
We haven’t introduced you to Corin Trent, better known as Zack Exley’s right hand man: Here’s Corbin Trent, the 31yr old from Tennessee.
Corbin Trent
We learn lots and lots about Corbin here  Link , such as his shoe size, he’s single, 5′ 9″ and 165 lbs, etc., and………. (warm and fuzzy narrative). He’s also the Communications Director for AOC.  Within this link, we also learn Ira Allison is the Exec Director for “Justice Democrats” And there’s Corbin, following AOC.
Corbin Trent and AOC
Corbin Trent is listed as the Co-Founder of “Brand New Congress” and Co-Director of Justice Democrats, here Link  The website is VERY visitor friendly and includes a “Blog” with radically slanted articles where all the reader has to do is push a button for sharing on Facebook. It’s all so easy………
In this video, Link    , beginning at about 10:10 minutes, we have Corbin on video discussing running Republicans, who are really Progressives (Neo-Marxists), and targeting districts which have historically low turnout. It wasn’t really Corbin’s idea, it was Zack Exley’s idea. Hear Zack talking about it here at about 12:30 in the video Link 
But we found another pic of Corbin, when he did his stylized photo shoot, in the same shirt, with these people. Oh my, who are these people? Let’s find out!!
group
The one in the middle is Alexandra Rojas. She’s the head of Justice Democrats and we have her on video at 4:05 minutes,  Link  talking about social, racial, and economic justice. Yes, it’s full blown Soviet Bloc Communism, with “justice” thrown in, favoring certain skin colors. They really don’t like white people, men, and especially Christians. Here, at 1:00 minute Link    Alexandra Rojas talks about how they recruited the bartender, AOC, to run for Congress, and BOTH AOC and Alexandra Rojas are on tape, admitting it. AOC is merely a figurehead.
To get into the deep weeds of policy, Alexandra Rojas does the 28 minute interview Link    here, rather than risking AOC talking for herself……… cuz Rojas knows the words far better than AOC…… because the words and policies belong to Rojas. Here, Rojas is polite, almost timid, young, fresh-faced…… carefully scripted. It’s the policies which scare the hell out of most Americans. She started as an intern in the Bernie campaign and worked her way up to national staff. She is now the Exec Director of Justice Dems. Alexandra is only 24yrs old and did a couple of years at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA.
Then we have Saikat Chakrabarti:
Saikat Chakrabarti
The guy on the right is Saikat Chakrabarti, Chief of Staff for AOC. He’s received a great deal of attention lately, which is fine with Zack Exley (who prefers the background). Saikat is often seen in the same green t-shirt with a meme of Subhas Chandra Bose….. who is a whole nother issue. Bose was the alternative to Gandhi in the quest for India independence from Britain. Gandhi advocated for peaceful return of rule to Indians and expelling the British. Bose argued for an armed overthrow and was STRONGLY influenced by Hitler’s Germany, actually MET Adolf Hitler, living in Germany during portions of WW2. Here is the Wiki page for Bose, one scary guy. Link
Even in India today, “anti-colonialism” sentiment runs strong among political parties. A push back against the USA in 2019, is often couched in language harkening back to that used by Subhas Chandra Bose. This political wing obviously does not like the British……. but they also identify America as an “Empire” …… which is pretty strange……. because we threw out the British before they did. So, why aren’t we kissing cousins with Saikit and his buddies? Because it’s not about resentment from India Independence in the 1940’s……. it’s about CONTROL of America in 2019. Bose is Chakrabarti’s idol.
Chakrabarti’s wiki page is found here:  Link   We learn more about him when we expand into the sources USED for his profile. For instance, Saikat is described as born and raised in Ft. Worth from a “Bengali” family. Were his parent His parents Indian Nationals, Bay of Bengal, this is the old Calcutta region and among the wealthiest regions in India. OR, were they from Bangladesh? Which is it? Why can’t he just say it? Bengali????? What the heck is a Bengali? I have 15 employees in India and no one uses this terminology. I’ve done biz in Bangladesh, no such thing as a Bengali. It’s odd and makes me wonder…… why?
ALSO, Bangladesh is one of the MOST polluted regions of the world. The mouth of the Ganges River, which drains into the Bay of Bengal is one of the 9 rivers responsible for 80% of ocean pollution. If Saikat wants to change the world and push Green New Deals, the best place in the world for him to start would be Bangladesh. Note: Biggest problem for Bangladesh today is China moving industry there for LOWER wages and CHINA acting as an overlord over the natives. Bangladesh GDP is about 275 Billion Link  but has almost doubled in the last decade. Saikat isn’t in Bangladesh or India though, he’s in the USA, blaming the USA for all the problems in the world.

Saikit graduated from Harvard with a degree in Computer Science, took off to Wall Street, then Silicon Valley, where he was involved in a number of startups. There’s a note in Saikit’s Wiki page which does not have a source. LOOK at this one: “founding a web design tool called Mockingbird”………. nah, it couldn’t be……. could it?
Saikit sounds like an American success story and VERY privileged. Yet, he joined Bernie Sanders campaign in the very beginning. Saikit became the Sanders Campaign Director of Organizing Technology and was part of the effort that created technology for grassroots supporters to collaborate on organizing events. Saikit also met Corbin Trent and Alexandra Rojas while working in the Sander’s campaign.
Saikit has received a number of puff pieces in the media, thank you to Michael H., contributor to this article. Here we see a full spread in ELLE magazine, by author R. Eric Thomas, who nicknamed him “Snack Saikat”, and openly discusses Saikat’s beard in a sexually appealing way, and how lucious his white button down is……. Who wrote this crap? The photos are staged and designed to be a “picture of America”……….. which would be a Communist picture……. but Elle doesn’t talk about that part. Link    Note: Elle Magazine is selling a new picture of the ideal sexy male — and it looks like Saikat, to young American women. It’s not the 6’3″ blond Harvard fraternity guy on the crew team  anymore. What’s even MORE shocking? The article is described as “Everything you need to know about Saikat” — except that he’s a radical Communist who wants to overthrow the American economic system.
Again, from Michael H, via Peter Hanson, Senior Reporter for Daily Caller Link

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts.
“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” Chakrabarti added.

Today, publicly, the founders of Justice Dems are listed as Corbin Trent, Rojas, and Chakrabarti. The others, like Exley prefer the shadows. These young activists push a message of “getting big money OUT of campaigns” and “anti-establishment” but it looks like they still rely heavily on traditional funding sources and only want to replace the current system with another system…….. which they control. What confuses me is….. why aren’t they all still working on Bernie’s campaign? No love for Bernie? Hey, I’m a Trump supporter, but Bernie’s supporters were completely screwed in 2016. Not fair to them at all.
One final word about Cenk Uygur, head of The Young Turks, which is probably the most popular youtube channel among young progressives/Neo-Marxists. Many people THINK it was Cenk’s idea to run these candidates. That’s wrong. Cenk was merely a media outlet who was used. Cenk is now disassociated with the Justice Democrats completely….. which would be strange if it was his brainchild…. given their success. Cenk was used.
Cenk Uygur
Yet, Cenk and the Young Turks are still the favorite propaganda arm for this political wing of leftists. And YES, Cenk still loves them… good for business. Maga Mom turned in this link: Watch closely, 7 minutes of pure propaganda: Link
We now more clearly understand their goal, which is to take over government of the United States, at every level of power. From your local District Attorney and Dog Catcher all the way up to Congress. This is no longer classical liberals who value individuals, rule of law, and free speech. Not your Daddy’s Dem Party anymore. Their idea works, but is dependent on those who don’t ask too many questions = naive voters. They are scaling up, will learn from their mistakes, and try again. Listen again to Zack Exley talking about how to USE Democracy to their advantage at 17:10 minutes, here. Link  They have no problem picking puppets as front men/women, people “of color”, which is odd because they’re almost exclusively white, for their ultimate goal. It’s even okay if they run Neo-Marxists as Republicans in historically low voter turnout districts. They’re organized and on the move.
Want to see what happens when they get together? Here’s Cenk Uygur interviewing Becky Bond and Zack Exley:

Are we ready to counter the effort?
Takeaway: I’ve been listening to their speeches for the better part of the day, in the background of the office. These people are slick, expert, trained in propaganda, highly proficient in creating a fluffy narrative. All their pics in the media, take a look, they are smiling broadly, no suit, no formal attire, they appear….. approachable and non-threatening. Yet, these are some of the worst bigots I’ve ever heard. They hate our side and most Americans. They recoil at the sight of us and think we are worthy of an untimely death….. and if only we would die……. everything in the world would be better, for their world/view/friends. It’s incredibly divisive and harmful….. the kind of thing any parent would shield their child from hearing……. and yet we send our kids to college and straight into the belly of this beast.

This is TOTALLY AWESOME .. ✋😎👍❤️‼️‼️‼️
TY kinthenorthwest …. great post .. 🤨👍❤️

NYGuy54

What is very concerning to me is that AOC has raised an amazing amount of cash for a congressional candidate (truly raised or diverted). I think I read that she had over $1 million on hand. I don’t think Angel Hernandez, the R candidate, has even cracked $10k.
With that kind of money advantage, she will get re-elected without a doubt. Time to start following the money.

cthulhu

And where does the money come from? Cui bono if the American Experiment should fail — China and the EU come to mind.

NYGuy54

Separate issue that the FEC needs to check. But right now, she is unbeatable, contrary to what the media on our side are willing to admit. Forget the polls. Hernandez (R) can’t even make poster signs…not enough money.

George Soros in part. Open Society connections.

When it comes to liberal money, its usually spelled Soros.

Harry Lime

And just like that Shaun “Whitey” King pops his empty cranium out from under his slimy rock to call Antifa terrorist a hero. These people are sick!
AOC also refused to condemn the terrorist. When asked by a reporter she remained silent and kept walking.

Big round of applause Miss Daughn. Mockingbird, IT, the nonexistent offices, etc, etc. There is big money who trained these people and brought them together. If aoc doesnt get reelected they all need to be watched even more.

singingsoul1

Daughn excellent thread as always well thought out and well researched. We are encountering a new wave of Marxists they are smart well educated in our Universities. We now opened the door to give thousand more foreigners green card who have been educated in our Universities. Many come from socialist countries that formed their views in formative years. Not all mind you but enough to change our culture our values and way of life. If this continues we will lose our Christian majority and our Christian influence on our culture. What will the influence bee? Marxism? Hinduism with its last system? Or Muslim with Sharia law?
We need to keep the balance to keep a healthy culture , society and Government.
Thank you everyone who contribute to this profound enlightening thread.

Molly Pitcher5

Daughn! You’re a treasure. I thought I knew about this group.. I knew exactly what they wanted people to know, the top layer.
It’s not enough to fight the old guard deep state but now this bulldozing machine too…smh.

GA/FL

…the more we need to fix, expose and counter their talking points and destructive policies – with solid defense of wise constructive policies.

singingsoul1

We need to find out the root of their activism. Not only who funds them but also where were they educated where were they born and their parents. Often I noticed meeting Immigrants the first generation seems to be drawn back to the old country. Many times parents send them back in summer to grandparents and family.
Most people do not realize that and these people are stuck between two cultures.
I purposely did not send my kids as children to Germany I did not wanted for them to be torn between two countries.
This is really something to look into.

wheatietoo

Great work, Daughn!
The Justice Democrats have their own twitter account.
This tweet from Jan 16th is the pinned tweet at the top:

.
You should check out the header picture on their account…😬😳
It is a monochromatic, commie-looking group photo of the 4 Harpy Sisters.
In fact…the twitter account seems to be Dedicated to the Four Harpies.

“They spend a sizable sum on their own salaries and seem to provide info and services to the candidates”
This is one of things I love about these Democrat organizing fronts. They’re so corrupt that they have a huge amount of overhead paying the salaries of the entitled elitists that run them. They think that b/c they have a college degree they’re worth being paid over six figure salaries for a non-profit. Actually, they whine about having to make “cuts” to their lifestyle to work in non-profit supposedly serving others!
Huge amounts of money are simply wasted as a result. If the slightest little chink hits the money hose, they start feeling financial pain fast.

michaelh

Dawn you’ll remember when I said that the “Green New Deal” was NOT about the environment, but about implementing economic policy?
I have to say that even my jaw dropped when I realized how correct I was, and they put it out there for the world to see.

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.”

I am working on it… But first I want A/C in my TRUCK!!!! These summers with high humidity and no A/C are killing my asthma.
….
Speaking of having to budget. I wonder how many of these city folk LIKED their power outages?
I wonder if they would LIKE the Green/Red Commie New Deal if they understood it meant they had DAILY power outages WHILE the corporations and the RICH did not?
NO ENERGY = NO JOBS
China and India figured that out and are building coal and nuclear plants as fast as they can. They know windmill and solar are just not going to hack it. The energy density and reliability means it is just not possible. The power companies in the USA are already installing smart meters so they can cut power to homes and small businesses and our few remaining big corporations can get what power there is.
If you do not believe me see:
href=”http://www.centerpointelectric.com/staticfiles/CNP/Common/SiteAssets/doc/Smart%20Grid%20FAQs%20complete%20081612.pdf
How Smart Meters Work

Once your meter has been installed, you will be notified when you will have access to BGE’s Smart Energy Manager…
Can BGE use the smart meter to shut off my electricity?
In 2013, the smart meters will enable BGE to remotely turn service on and off at customer premises. This feature will be used when customers move out of their current homes and start service elsewhere. This capability was mandated by Maryland’s Public Service Commission in their requirements for smart meters. This cost effective feature eliminates the need for a BGE field visit when customers move or start service. BGE’s policies for situations involving a disconnection will be the same as they were prior to the installation of smart meters. The remote connect feature will also enable BGE to place customers back into service more expeditiously.

From a NIMBY site

“Smart” meter planning in the United States is related to the Energy Act of 2007 and administered by the US Dept of Energy, the FCC, and each state’s public utilities commission (PUC). However, in that Act, there was NO mandate to force all residential customers to accept installation of “smart” meters–only that they would be offered….
Q: Who, then, does the “smart” meter benefit?
Only the utility companies benefit. The utility can save itself money by getting rid of meter readers. Because the “smart” meter measures hour by hour, the utility can charge you more for electricity used during certain periods of the day of their choosing.
Their story is that this device will save you money. But there are no studies, no evidence, to back this up. In fact, in the one study done so far (from Canada), customers’ bills went up, not down.
http://stopsmartmeters.org/frequently-asked-questions/faq-smart-meter-basics/

Smart Grid System Report Annex A and B

Smart-grid technologies will address transmission congestion issues through demand response and controllable load. Smart-grid-enabled distributed controls and diagnostic tools within the transmission system will help dynamically balance electricity supply and demand, thereby helping the system respond to imbalances and limit their propagation when they occur. These controls and tools could reduce the occurrence of outages and power disturbances attributed to grid overload. They could also reduce planned rolling brownouts and blackouts like those implemented during the energy crisis in California in 2000. http://www.smartgrid.gov/sites/default/files/pdfs/sgsr_annex_a-b.pdf

Linda K Harrison

“Because the smart meter measures hour by hour….” This has been true for more than 30 years, long before smart meters. My sister lived in Derwood, MD and she was placed on “time of use” by her electric company. She did not choose time of use and could not opt out.
Electricity during certain hours was almost double the price. She was home all day and was really limited as to what she could do during the day that used electric (example: her husband was an executive and it wound up being cheaper to send his shirts to the cleaner than trying to do them at home).

Linda K Harrison

Daughn – actually back in those days it was the dryer and iron. His shirts had to be clean and crisp. I don’t think the washer was as much a problem – you would have been safe there.

michaelh

Some people don’t need a washing machine because all their clothes are dry clean only… maybe that’s where the “New Green Deal” came from. Well they don’t call them the unwashed masses for nothing.

The easiest way to ‘consume’ CO2 is with trees so now The World Bank is deporting farmers form their farmland.

World Bank Carbon Finance Report for 2007
The carbon economy is the fastest growing industry globally with US$84 billion of carbon trading conducted in 2007, doubling to $116 billion in 2008, and expected to reach over $200 billion by 2012 and over $2,000 billion by 2020.

Remember carbon trading PRODUCES NOTHING OF VALUE! It just transfers wealth from ordinary people who have to work for a living to the ultra-wealthy who can afford to own vast tracks of forest… Forest stolen from indiginous people in Africa and South America.

Conversation about Drones with some interesting context… trimming the drone conversation down to the pieces that are interesting WRT “Green New Deal”:
https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/dear-maga-20190330-open-topic/comment-page-1/#comment-114445

Thank you so much for this explanation FG&C. I’m not a pilot (I’m in cybersecurity) and didn’t have the details I needed to connect the dots.
All I knew was that Amazon thought they could walk in to the FAA, propose a bunch of “common sense” regulations for drone space, and that everyone should just go along with it! They wanted to split the 500′ airspace into bands for different speed drones. It just smelled bad – like they were trying to do a land grab on the entire U.S. airspace. Amazon’s own private flight deck – you have to use their ATC system, and woe unto those who Amazon decides to evict. There are very few companies in the world that have the compute power and capabilities to build municipal and national drone ATC. It should give us pause that Amazon is precisely one of those companies.
Now we know why AOC and the “Green New Deal” crowd want to eliminate air travel! The Brave New Drone World can’t be realized as long as the public believes that flights are at risk from drone traffic. Indeed it would be easier to build a completely new drone ATC ground up than try to work through the FAA in the present system and walk on eggshells to not be disruptive to the needs of the airlines.

When you hear pols talk about “crumbling infrastructure”, one of the BIG things they’re talking about is the US ATC system.
With population growth comes increased air travel and the number of planes in the air at any given moment. And the worldwide population is exploding.
As it is right now, ATC in the US desperately needs upgrading. But as with all things in aviation, this is HUGELY expensive and time consuming. So what does DC do? Why, punt the problem and kick the can down the road, of course!
Perhaps you’ve heard of “landing fees” or “user’s fees”. This idea has been kicked around a lot as a way to pay for the needed upgrades, but all it would do is dramatically increase the costs of air travel. And guess who would start crying to their pols about that? Voters, of course. It is a very complex, dynamic, and massively expensive problem.
You see…air travel is responsible for HUGE amounts of money (think special events, hotels, rental cars, restaurants, etc). No air travel = > hotels, > rent cars, > full restaurants, > Uber, etc. Oh, wanna make all those people travel by car? Really? On our already congested roads and highways….which themselves have their own infrastructure issues??
You pointed at private companies (broadly speaking). And you are exactly right. Wouldn’t Amazon just LOVE to get it’s greedy little “proprietary ATC program” hooks into/over airspace the PUBLIC owns?? But hey….you think Amazon just thought of that? Hell no! The airlines thought of that a LOOONG time ago and have lobbied the FAA and the gov’t for YEARS to allow them to privatize US ATC….for precisely the kind of commercial control and monopolization you speak of.
The devil loves to sell his evil through two main conduits to the unwary…..#1 is convenience and #2 is safety.
Our liberties and way of life are being attacked and degraded by these two things, in every walk of life. Thing is, you can’t sell #1 without #2 when it comes to transportation. Too much blood has been spilt to undo that pairing.
The whole thing is a giant ball of tangled-up yarn.
The one thing we can be grateful for, in this sense, is the FAA, DOT, and NTSB. Because like any GIANT gov’t agency, they will fight anything that threatens it’s mission and reason for existence. And if the pols were to privatize the PUBLIC’s airspace….the air over our heads….then the they would have less reason to exist. And THAT isn’t going to happen.
Not in our lifetimes, anyway.

I wouldn’t mind rail travel as a substitute, but that was destroyed decades ago.
Wow.

michaelh

Passenger rail works best in the northeastern United States where there is plenty of infrastructure. But in the south and west there are not enough tracks in the right places to make it practical. I think if we had a well written infrastructure bill, backed by Republicans not in the RINO caucus, that used innovative funding mechanisms like private investment/tax shelter bonds/repatriation shelters, it could be possible. Beside that the biggest problem with passenger rail is that it is a government owned and subsidized monopoly at present. I’m sure the Soviets are proud of what Amtrack has accomplished. I imagine them having a platform much like the Justice Democrats to eliminate Pullman Cars from the railroads.

Deplorable Patriot

Amtrak – I’ve taken it to Chicago, but since the rail lines serve two masters, we sat outside of Alton for over an hour.
Years ago…we still use all the old train stations here. Some of the old tracks have been repurposed. I guess having traveled in Europe, I got used to it.

michaelh

Another place where if there was genuine financial incentive to restore passenger trains improving the infra would help. As it is, the rail network is at freight capacity, overloaded, and massive stretches are being upgraded in decades-long projects that have to be carefully coordinated due to them being major critical arteries that cannot be closed. I’d say it’s shocking how we let our rail infra get to this point, but I’m not, we all know the story. Don’t get me started on the problems with rail signalling – it truly frightens me.

I could’ve written a better Green New Deal in my sleep.
While there are many things about the “Green New Deal” as described in the media that are absurd, spidey sense tells me that behind the embarrassing presentation, there is a much more ugly reality.
If you have ever visited an Environmental Education Center, you’ll learn REAL FAST that what you think is absurd, they are DEAD SERIOUS about.
It is worth the trip just to open your eyes to their propaganda, and what they expose schoolchildren to.
Let me translate a few key points:
“Rebuilding every building in the U.S.”
Require LEED and LEED+ certification for all U.S. construction moving forward.
Require inspections of “legacy” structures for environmental compliance
Impose a ramp schedule for “legacy” structures to ensure they are either retrofitted for compliance or condemned
Increase the environmental and safety requirements for single-family dwellings so that they become prohibitively expensive to built new or maintain existing.
Push people increasingly into “environmentally sustainable” high-density housing.
Eliminate automobiles:
Yes, they mean eliminate automobiles.
See above: Rebuilding every building in the U.S.
Every building moving forward will be built in high-density “environmental impact” zones optimized for energy and travel efficiency, not for human persons.
Reduce the “need” for automobiles through high density spaces and mass transity
Increase CAFE regulations until traditional automotive technologies are no longer feasible
Increase subsidies of electric cars (limited range)
Discourage options for travel
Discourage private operation of vehicles by limiting parking areas or garaging options, increasing policing for minor violations, reducing lanes on roads, engaging in heavy traffic control, congestion tolling (See de Blasio’s NYC for a shining example of the Brave New World)
Discourage all private ownership of vehicles through taxation, tolling, high operational costs (high fuel prices, sky high insurance, tolls). Make alternatives like mass transit and ride-share seem easy and affordable. They won’t even notice when their freedom is gone.
“Eliminate airplanes”
Eliminate air travel – especially international air travel – except on a “need” basis. (It’s the Soviet way, comrade! Why should you impose a burden on the State’s transit system for your joyriding trip?)
This includes Domestic air travel
Return to train based inter-city travel – no automobiles. And by train, don’t think you’ll be riding in any Pullman cars either.
“Eliminate cow farts”
They’ve confronted Al Gore on his duplicity about eating steaks – if their patron saint isn’t above scrutiny, then precisely who is safe?
The short version: Elimination of livestock and meat as a staple of the American diet.
This will be a phased approach because most people will reject it if done too quickly.
A lot of “diet” noise will help in this regard – leaving behind “red meat” as key to a healthy diet.
Fat shame people who do not abide by standards.
Require the printing of calorie counts on menus to enforce guilt mechanisms.
Promote veganism and vegetarianism as new, trendy, healthy eating alternatives.
Drive up the cost of livestock through special subsidies, herd culling, and herd disease. (Swine flu, foot and mouth disease, etc.)
“Protect nature”
More land grabs.
Land not turned into parks – but into “preserves” or “forests” where ordinary Americans are prohibited from stepping foot or engaging in agricultural activities.
Effectively force rural peoples to urbanize.
Reduce the “suburban sprawl” with “small footprint” overcrowded cities. (People in small spaces are easy to control.)
I could go on…

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is economically illiterate—but what is Paul Krugman’s excuse?
The “Green New Deal” Is a Fiscal Fantasy
https://www.city-journal.org/green-new-deal-ocasio-cortez-krugman
…Details remain vague, but some context on the AOC plan, and on the sleight of hand that Krugman uses to support it, is revealing.
So far, the only concrete step Ocasio-Cortez describes to enact the Green New Deal is the formation of a House select committee to formulate specific goals. On the environmental side, these would include, among other things, expanding renewable-energy sources until they provide 100 percent of the nation’s power; building an energy-efficient “smart grid;” upgrading every residence and industrial building in the U.S. for energy efficiency, comfort, and safety; eliminating greenhouse-gas emissions for industry and agriculture; funding “massive” investments to draw down greenhouse-gas levels; and making the United States a leader in the use and export of green technology.
To these ambitious goals, Ocasio-Cortez adds a long list of social objectives: providing training and education for the energy transition, including “job guarantees at a living wage for everyone who wants one”; diversifying the economies of regions dependent on fossil-fuel extraction; helping communities most affected by pollution; protecting the “sovereign rights of tribal nations”; mitigating racial, regional, and gender-based inequalities; developing universal health-care and income-support programs; and ensuring that organized labor has a major role in all these efforts.
Achieving even a small portion of this to-do list would have enormous costs. At last count, there were some 136 million housing units in the United States. Upgrading each unit to high standards of energy efficiency would cost, conservatively, at least $10,000 per home, adding up to a total cost of $1.3 trillion. Doing the same for industrial structures would easily exceed that amount. The single-payer health-care part would cost another $3 trillion or more, annually. Stabilizing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would add another $1 trillion to $2 trillion to the price tag—and all these still only account for three items on AOC’s list.
To be fair to Ocasio-Cortez, she does not downplay the costs. She did, after all, draw a parallel to World War II. She has also acknowledged that a 70 percent marginal tax rate would increase annual federal receipts by only about $225 billion—far short of what would be needed. For the rest of the cost, she would rely on debt, “printing money,” and government willingness to take an equity stake in some of the enterprises involved.
AOC’s proposals to expand government ownership and take on more debt didn’t cause much of a media stir. What did get attention was her suggestion to raise taxes on the wealthy—in part because Krugman has taken up the fight on her behalf. …

It’s Not Really a Climate Thing: It’s about Control

He was Eager to burn it down when it came to the DNC. I’m not sure he was “used” as much as he was a willing partner. And from this 5 day old video, he is still a willing partner and is happy to use them to bludgeon the DNC.

Yes Most of the were just melting down and considering all of the twisted news and outright fake news they serve up on their show, good and fun to see it. However, Cenk Uygur was “righteously indignant at his side of the uniparty and was determined to do something about it.
I assume, due to his show and his many years active in the dem party, he already had contacts. He used his frustration and anger “productively” (I put that and righteous in quotes because of how far left he is and I think he is destructive v. productive and that his “success” is actually disastrous for the US).
You gotta hand it to him –>> had been part of and very helpful to some Very significant change in the last 2 .5 years! He channeled his energies and the New Congress players upped their media game. Would seem that Cenk and his contacts would have played a roll in the increase media coverage and the filming, etc. but that is pure speculation on my part

The whole topic is kind of mind blowing. The surviving company names are all mid-19th century in origin, and all trace lines to aristocracy. Well, except for Union Carbide. Not counting Monsanto since it’s essentially gone at this point.

Interesting about Union Carbide. Whenever I think about them I think about the Bhopal gas disaster. It’s thoroughly documented and researched. Last I checked the plant is still sitting there rusting away, ticking time bomb to cause a problem again.

Well, I don’t know if you read what I put in the open thread yesterday about du Pont and Mallinckrodt, but an anon has connected some dots with the du Ponts and the Epstein affair. Then, I looked up Mallinckrodt since it was the OTHER hometown chemical company and found out they’re the ones working with andrenochrome synthetics. Lupus and MS are the two diseases that are treated with it.
Really mind blowing stuff.

3/13/2015 — THE FOOD GESTAPO
This report was open for public comment for 45 days:
*http://www.health.gov/dietaryguidelines/dga2015/comments/
NOW it is part of the US government Dietary Guidlines.
The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) came up with the recommendation that America Should Adopt a ‘Plant-Based’ Diet. It recommends taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at schools and worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television or computer. The new Food Safety Modernization Act and Obamacare will be used as the weapons to transform American dietary habits to a more sustainable pattern of eating.
This load of Bovine Feces is straight out of the mouth of Maurice Strong:
In 1992, As Chairman Strong told the UN conference at Kyoto…

“It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”

The same propaganda was repeated by WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy…

“climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared… Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? “

It is being ‘presented as a health issue by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee as the excuse to ram radical changes down the throats of Americans. However it has nothing to do with health. There is certainly a lot of information in the scientific literature that shows humans need meat especially early in life if the brain is to develop fully.
For example: Role of red meat in the diet for children and adolescents
*http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Role+of+red+meat+in+the+diet+for+children+and+adolescents.-a0169311698
The US governments concern for the health of Americans does not play given the FDA has routinely over looked

“…significant departures from good clinical practice, such as underreporting of adverse events, violations of protocol, violations of recruitment guidelines, and various forms of scientific misconduct…. or submission of false information… The FDA does not typically notify journals …nor make any announcement intended to alert the public about the research misconduct that it finds. The documents the agency discloses [FOIA] tend to be heavily redacted. As a result, it is usually very difficult, or even impossible, to determine which published clinical trials are implicated by the FDA’s allegations of research misconduct.” — Research Misconduct Identified by the US Food and Drug Administration
*http://archinte.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleID=2109855

In an article for Slate, study author Charles Seife said the FDA repeatedly hides evidence of fraud from both the public and trusted scientific advisers. In at least one case, falsified data in a trial comparing chemotherapies led to a patient’s death. — Medical Daily:
*http://www.medicaldaily.com/fda-underreports-scientific-misconduct-peer-reviewed-articles-benefits-negative-321548

Nor does concern for public health play given the USDA recent conduct. The Government Accountability Project – “Shielding the Giant, USDA’s ‘Don’t Look, Don’t Know’ Policy” report shows the USDA routinely hid the fact they KNEW Con-agra was shipping E. coli O157:H7 laced meats. It wasn’t until John Munsell forced the issue that the extent of the problem was finally disclosed to the public. Unfortunately the damage was already done to the reputation of farmers and the Ag Cartel dominated USDA/FDA and World Trade Organization got their much wanted Food Safety Modernization Act past Congress.
So why are Americans suddenly about to be forced into a change in eating habits?
A year ago the chair of DGAC told us why and it has NOTHING that so ever to do with health and everything to do with Agenda 21 aka Sustainability.

“After 30 years of waiting, the fact that this committee is addressing sustainability issues brings me a lot of pleasure,” she began. Clancy went on to advocate that Americans should become vegetarians in order to achieve sustainability in the face of “climate change.”

That statement certainly sounds like the DGAC is more concerned with Sustainability than with the health of Americans. The Chair goes on to say:

“What pattern of eating best contributes to food security and the sustainability of land air and water?” Clancy asked. “The simple answer is a plant-based diet.”…
Clancy said plant-based diets lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and have a “smaller ecological impact” on “drought, climate change, soil erosion, pesticides and antibiotics in water supplies.”

Based on my past 20 years of experience I can say with authority Clancy doesn’t know what the heck she is talking about. Years of crop farming removed 2 feet of top soil from my farm until it was sold. There was nothing left but inorganic clay that produced weeds not crops. I have used it for livestock farming and rebuilt six inches of fertile black soil.
Clancy goes on to say:

“In terms of keeping a broader idea of food security in your minds it would be perilous, I would think, for this committee or anybody else to not be taking climate change into account in any of the deliberations about sustainability,” she said.
Clancy said beef production is the “greatest concern.”
Meat production is harmful to the environment because of manure runoff and “methane production by cattle,” she said, which has “a much stronger effect on climate change than carbon dioxide does per unit of methane.”…..
*http://weaselzippers.us/179187-meet-the-radicals-creating-the-new-federal-dietary-guidelines/

So beef production, not the health of Americans are the ‘greatest concern’ Gee thanks for telling us that up front.
The report was open for public comment for 45 days, and will be used as the basis by the government agencies to develop the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines are used as the basis for government food assistance programs, nutrition education efforts, and for making “decisions about national health objectives…
DGAC proposed a variety of solutions to address obesity, and its promotion of what it calls the “culture of health.”

DGAC called for diet and weight management interventions by “trained interventionists” in healthcare settings, community locations, and worksites.

“Government at local, state, and national levels, the health care system, schools, worksites, community organizations, businesses, and the food industry all have critical roles in developing creative and effective solutions,”
…policy interventions to “reduce unhealthy options,” limit access to high calorie foods in public buildings, “limit the exposure” of advertisements for junk food, a soda tax, and taxing high sugar and salt items and dessert.
“Align nutritional and agricultural policies with Dietary Guidelines recommendations and make broad policy changes to transform the food system so as to promote population health, including the use of economic and taxing policies to encourage the production and consumption of healthy foods and to reduce unhealthy foods,”
The amount of sedentary time Americans spend in front of computers and TV sets is also a concern to the federal panel…
They recommended “coaching or counseling sessions,” “peer-based social support,” and “electronic tracking and monitoring of the use of screen-based technologies” as a way to limit screen time….
“The major findings regarding sustainable diets were that a diet higher in plant-based foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds, and lower in calories and animal-based foods is more health promoting and is associated with less environmental impact than is the current U.S. diet,”…
*http://freebeacon.com/issues/feds-america-should-adopt-plant-based-diet/

On top of that is this article: Hospitals to begin monitoring your credit card purchases to flag ‘unhealthy’ habits

What you buy at the grocery store, where you live, and even your membership status at the local gym are all subject to a new data collection scheme by the American medical system. Reports indicate that hospitals and doctors’ offices all across the country are now collecting this and other personal information in order to target individuals deemed to have “unhealthy” lifestyle habits that put them at high risk of disease.
Bloomberg reports that hospital systems in both North and South Carolina as well as Pennsylvania have already begun tracking people’s food-purchasing habits by spying on them through public records and credit card transactions. Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS), which operates some 900 care centers throughout the Carolinas, has teamed up with a data-mining company to compile and track this information for the later purpose of calling “high-risk” folks and urging them to make a change.
“What we are looking to find are people before they end up in trouble,” stated Michael Dulin, chief clinical officer for analytics and outcomes at CHS, to Bloomberg. “The idea is to use big data and predictive models to think about population health and drill down to the individual levels to find someone running into trouble that we can reach out to and try to help out.”….

And just to give you the warm fuzzies, Why Is the USDA Buying Submachine Guns with 30-Round Magazines? Are those bullets for our livestock or for us farmers.

BTW Daugh, an absolutely great article. I hope Wolfie pins it on the side bar so we have it as reference.

I’d think people aren’t going to be happy receiving Big Brother notices – once they’ become aware of how this data got out, there should be lawsuits regarding invasion of privacy and lack of permission to use personal data. It’s one thing to count sale of chocolate candy bars in general, another to say who purchased them.

I sent your article round. Also DM’d it to Jeff Carlson and Unseen.

Was my first thought – get it out there. Sometimes the campaign branches of POTUS’ team will take a peek. Jeff Carlson (Epoch Times) is a strong investigative reporter with wide reach.

Elizabeth Harrington, GOP spokeswoman, does a thread documenting the shocking pro-terrorist, anti-American sayings of the Sharia Stalinist Sisters:

President Trump has noted how the establishment Democrats are strangely scared of these newly elected/selected ‘leaders’ of the Democrat Party.
As soon as these young women arrived in congress, they began their brazen campaign of outrageous statements while ignoring, even disparaging the old guard.
They’ve come to congress like bulls in a china shop – just as their overlords intended/directed – doing exactly what they were hired to do – as we have learned – thanks to Daughn and all the great researchers above.

Well, we’ve all met the bartender and the others of the Four Horses’ Asses of the Apocalypse.

The co founders of Justice Dems & leaders – Dec, 2020. He no longer officially counted himself as part of the org but I think he is still very much involved and incredibly suportive.
It is not so much that they are a shadowing deal – it is that they are the head of their new party, setting the agenda and supporting their candidates just as the DNC and the Dem party leadership are the leaders/power behind elected Dems.

This guy says AOC is nothing put an actress, a puppet —>> but he is missing the point. That is part of the appeal. The org, the new Party, publicly looked for non experienced people who agree with their platform and their stance on the issues who will then run and that they can support. Yes, they are initially non politicians and That is part of the mission, part of the appeal! Outsiders, committed to an agenda, to drain the swamp and make real change.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_zJeoTHxfU
Same idea – that AOC didn’t just come up with all of this on her own but again, that is not the point. They very much advertise their methods and their methods are one of their selling points. It is not a secret that these are non politicians who all working toward *their* parties platform and are supported by *their* party – the Justice Democrats

MAGA Mom

Sorry – didn’t realize it was a repeat. But the point its that the power behind them is not a secret – it is an advertised, well known, admired by their supporters Feature.
The fact that they are coming to together to lift up outsiders (to elected politics) who are insiders to their own group, part of the support and activism of Justice Democrats, is a Feature. “Anyone of can do it” & “we are all in this together” kind of thing.
AOC is being a puppet to secret bosses. She is thrilled to follow the program put out and supported by her party, her leadership, in a group she believes in. She isn’t being used – she volunteered to be the public face, to be a candidate and then be a worker on the Hill and within the Dem party for her party.
Same as the Tea Party – but better organized and not as hunted by the media and their own party. This is grassroots coming together to support a party/platform/agenda and some run for office. Not a secret, not damaging and not embarrassing to them. Its something they are proud of – to be an outsider, pure, not corrupt, ordinary American who can run on the issues of this group and then win.

The kicker is..as she said in that short vid..it doesn’t matter if they’re a one term ..the inroad has been made.
That’s a little scary. It’s a borg. All parts of the machine, one part fails and another will take it’s place.

Note: I am not a Young Turks fan. I just happened to find their meltdown in ’16 so funny I watched it multiple times…until I stopped laughing at their ridiculous left wing rants and their complete disconnect from reality as shown by their true surprise at President Trump’s strong win and started listening to what they said, matching it up with what they did and the down stream results from their passion that night.
A video from 7/13 showing Cenk Uygur recognizing the Uniparty.
He is attacking the DNC side of the Uniparty, wanting the Dems to be big $ free and true to their leftists foundations, sentiments and voting base.

Young Turks immediately after their loss in ’16 saying they need to completely clean house on the DNC and in the Dem leadership. Very obvious direction that they are going and easy to see how they were working behind the scenes to do exactly what they say they are going to do.

Cenk Uygur interviews Becky Bond & Zack Exley
They were already friends, already thought alike and already agreed on the problem.
Uygur had a platform and the others had an org with activist working to make “change”.
Yes, he was in contact and knew this whole crowd and their leaders and future plans

Jan, 2017 – Justice Dem launch update
He sees this as a separate political party on the left, challenging the Establishment Democrats. This video encapsulates what they are doing – finding leaders in the communities/districts and then run them for congress, taking recommendations from their audience, key position is not taking big donations and PAC money

MAGA Mom

Well, then, we need to find the big money. One of many reasons: their supporters expect no big money. Showing big money, showing any connections between big money and agenda items or voting patterns would be determinable to their message and core follower #s. Plus, show their own use of the big money for salaries and perks above and beyond their followers and show their own donations against their followers donations and average income….eye opening to their followers.
yes, mostly followers v. supporters. followers are supporters in the sense that they literally support them with time & $ but followers in the idea that they did not all have these ideas independently and then decide to support the org. Their followers are “educated” by the org to a great degree. Another roll Cenk plays – not just promoting, advertising and amplifying the org but education the audience/potential supporters to be ready to support them and to want to support them

Great article DNW. Great posts from Q Tree peeps. My regret is that I can’t find time to read all, digest it, remember it all, and spread the information. But, thank you for giving me the opportunity to try to learn as much as possible.
I say this also to Wolfie, Flep, and all you terrific bloggers here.

Hi Daughn. Great article! I don’t know if it adds much to the convo, but I found a few things.
Zack’s mom Alma is deceased. She was an educator; there is a scholarship for “persons of color” in her name in Connecticut.
https://almaexleyscholarship.org/
His dad is Elwood “Woody.” I found a FB page for him. He just looks like an average liberal old guy. His father, also Elwood, was an architect in PA from what I can find.
Elwood owns a company called Exley Communications, LLC in Connecticut, est. in 2015. I can’t find out anything about the company. He is 79 now; that’s pretty old to establish a company four years ago, but who knows?
His sister Alexandra got married in 2007. She was at the time the director of information resources at the Young Survival Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to helping young adults affected by breast cancer. This was probably because her mother died of breast cancer in 1995 at age 52.
Zach also has a FB page. First thing on it was about Alex Rojas on CNN. Lots of lefties in his friends list, people working for Cory Booker, ACORN, Bernie Sanders, etc. I could spend a week looking at people from that list. I find it odd that his FB stuff is so accessible.
It looks like Zack grew up in the standard liberal family to me. Activism, scholarships for people of “color,” etc.
That’s what I’ve got, for now.

Truly strange that he has no family mention at Wiki.
He said “meep, meep,” but I got him anyway, lol.

Hmmmm….very interesting idea, that.

Daughn, FYI, not enough discussed. Bangladesh is a corrupt disaster. Corrupt corrupt corrupt. Makes India seem like a first world country. They’ll do the dirty work (environmentally toxic) that India turns away. I’m sure others have better insight into this.

Good for you! Basically I just tell people don’t buy anything that says made in Bangladesh. I heard an immigrant story once and the family basically said the same thing point blank and with moral emphasis.

The country has made Islam its official religion. That is a big source of trouble right there.
