‘Green New Deal’ runs through Russia

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

Forget about AOC’s Green New Deal! It is a ruse, a wily effort to slip communism through the back door.

The former Soviet Union controlled their population by essentially impoverishing them. In grounding, disarming and making Americans vegans, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez crowd will have done the same to their countrymen.

Make no mistake! The Green New Deal is about certain people gaining power. Real concerns are irrelevant.

Case in point: Many communities in rural America do not have access to clean drinking water, thanks to outdated infrastructure. The Government Accountability Office estimates that the costs of remedying the looming water crisis might take $190 billion in the decades to come.

Being forced to follow through with the Obama plan, “to cut greenhouse emissions 80% by 2050,” came with a price tag of $5.3 trillion dollars, per Columbia Business School economist, Geoffrey Heal. Little money remained for clean drinking water in rural America. President Joe Biden later labeled the plan, “Build Back Better.”

In reality, “Build Back Better” is a strategy designed to force a socialist, globalist agenda on the American people. According to Heal, the plan would have a marginal, if any impact on global temperatures.

Global temperatures have been rising and falling for eons. During the Minoan war period, 1300-1000 B.C., the Earth was about five-degrees Celsius warmer than the current average. Earth temperatures today are comparable to the Roman era. When Columbus was discovering the new world, we were probably three degrees cooler. That period was known as “the little ice age.” Despite billions spent on research, government-funded scientists have ignored evidence that global warming has nothing to do with carbon dioxide emissions.

As carbon emissions go, we do have issues. But fixing the problem shouldn’t amount to destroying American prosperity. We already ARE the example for the rest of the world! And don’t bring up Trump’s pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord! He surmised it to our “trusting” the United Nations with “one-hundred-million” of our dollars.

Here is the bald-faced fact about a “real” Green New Deal: We must force China and India to comply; successfully pressure them to adopt our standard. And that won’t happen UNLESS we have help.

From Russia? Are we kidding ourselves? Russia’s environmental report card is nearly as bad as the Soviet Union’s was. How could they be anything but a nuisance, if not a deterrent?

When I first visited Russia in 1998, I was astounded to learn that the average life expectancy for Russian men was only 57! Medical sources cited the fact that 70% of Russian men smoked cigarettes, often of the highest tar and nicotine content. There was also the inexpensive, often preferred beverage of choice: Vodka! Today, most of those in power during former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev’s years are six feet under.

Those old Soviet types have been replaced by “Children of Perestroika,” Russians who were in middle and high school during Gorbachev’s time as General Secretary. These Russians have lived with computers, cell phones, and world access. Most are noticeably embarrassed with their country’s environmental record.

America needs to come to terms with Russia on a number of key issues. A plan to lower carbon emissions might be the ideal starting point. While Russian implementation may require American financial help, it is a certainty that Europeans will support it. Our “New Green Alliance” could then mandate the standard to the rest of the planet, threatening sanctions for those not participating. This is the “real” Green New Deal!

Yet 70’s and 80’s vintage cold warriors would be skeptical. While their Soviet counterparts have mostly passed, they remain a potent force. They would ask, “even if we offered to foot the tab, could we honestly trust Putin to do his part?”

Let us place ourselves in President Vladimir Putin’s, and most Russian shoes for an instant. Their predicted response would be “could we trust the Americans who were making such a proposal?”

Russian intelligentsia concludes correctly that there are two Americas vying for power and control in the United States. They have identified the two factions as “faith based, national populists,” and “secular socialist, globalists.” The latter is on board with former President Obama and current President Biden. The former is solidly with former President Donald Trump. To do anything with the United States comes down to knowing “which” America you are negotiating with.

Contrary to popular opinion, Putin and his inside circle are not the communists. In fact, they are the opponents of the communists in Russia!

Since 1993, Gennady Zyuganov had been the leader of the Russian Communist Party. In 2018, Zyuganov then 73, announced that he would not oppose Putin in the upcoming election. Instead, he was passing the mantle to 57-year-old Pavel Grudinin, who ran and lost. It should be noted that Grudinin and Zyuganov are close friends with John Brennan, who served as CIA Director under Obama.

Putin and associates see the commonalities between Trump’s opponents and their own. They recognize Trump as a nationalist, which makes for a more difficult negotiator, but easier to understand.

Putin is also a nationalist. He pr0fesses to love Russia and doesn’t have a problem with Trump’s “America first” ideology. If anything, he admires Trump’s conviction! In political science terms, both Putin and Trump are “realists.” Both are likewise avowed Christians.

As one Putin surrogate phrased, “Putin is “nash ceela moosheena,” (our strong man). Trump is “vash ceela moosheena,”(your strong man).

Most recall the almost fanatical fixation Trump’s opponents held when he met with Putin in Helsinki. Some even wanted to interrogate the translator! Could this have stemmed from fear that Trump might go around the State Department (as Richard Nixon did in 1972 in arranging a summit with Mao Zedong) and negotiate directly with Putin?

Putin would see a “green new deal” instigated by Trump as an opportunity to work out other differences. Starting with a freeze on NATO expansion in conjunction with Russia’s return to the G-7. Then would come the new “START” treaty, followed by the lifting of sanctions and recognition of Crimean annexation. Neo-cons, most Democrats, and the corporate media would likely experience convulsions!

The overriding question would be, “what would the United States get in return?”

Putin is nobody’s fool. He would know that to gain those concessions, he would need to offer something significant. Global carbon emission reduction could be the foundation for something greater. Bi-lateral cooperation begins with knowing that you are negotiating with the right party.

Unbeknownst to most, Putin had first broached former Presidents Bill Clinton and later George W. Bush about Russian inclusion in NATO. In her recent book, “The Limits of Partnership,” Angela Stent described both Clinton and Bush telling Putin, “I don’t have a problem with it. In fact, I will endorse it.”

Yet, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell couched the path for Russia to join NATO, ignoring the bipartisan endorsement. This action led Russia to conclude that America is not run by elected representatives, but by a large industrial apparatus that they accurately describe as the “deep state.”

Russia’s conclusion that an army of unelected bureaucrats is doing America’s bidding further complicates an already delicate relationship.

At stake is a cleaner, greener planet! Not to mention, peace!
