Democrats bury funding for “Climate Change Police” in Senate reconciliation bill


Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

WASHINGTON, DC- You cannot make this up. According to Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), conveniently hidden inside the Senate reconciliation bill is an $8 billion albatross which would create a Civilian Climate Corps…think a bunch of snowflake environmental wackos with enforcement authority, The Right Scoop reports.

Banks noted that when far-left neo-Marxist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started talking about the so-called “Green New Deal” a few years ago, most people with more than a couple of brain cells (that leaves out most leftists) laughed it off.

It was so absurd and outrageous that nobody took it seriously. That was before the Democrats gained control of the entire federal government.

Now, part of the reconciliation bill is to create, as Banks says “a climate police department or climate militia from the federal government.”

“So the federal government will go hire a bunch of climate change activists and give them a badge and tell them to go out and enforce the Green New Deal mandates. Can you imagine how dangerous that would be?” Banks asked.

Banks noted that some Americans already don’t trust federal law enforcement (and rightfully so). He noted that when these so-called “green cops” come knocking at people’s doors to enforce key portions of the degrowth movement otherwise known as the Green New Deal, it will not end well.

The fact that AOC and the other leftist nutjobs in Congress want to fundamentally change our economy is nothing new. In fact back in May, the New York Post, citing Fox News said that Democrats were indeed looking to create a “Civilian Climate Corps” consisting of 1.5 million…that’s right, million…far left environmental snowflakes to browbeat the American people. The inclusion of this boondoggle inside the reconciliation bill which numbers hundreds of pages is what is new.

According to the Post, so-called “corpsmembers” would get on-the-job training and would collaborate with community groups to “reduce carbon emissions, enable a transition to renewable energy, build healthier and more resilient communities, implement conservation projects with proven climate benefits, and help communities recover from climate disasters.”

The Green New Deal would expand on the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and is a play on the Franklin Roosevelt-era “New Deal,” created by him during the Great Depression and put people to work in federal programs in order to improve the country’s public lands, parks, and forests.

Although the New Deal is given credit by leftists with ending the Depression, however most people credit World War II for reigniting America’s manufacturing and economic engine.

The Civilian Climate Corps would pay that 1.5 million lefties at least $15 an hour and also receive full, free (for them) healthcare benefits.

The plan would also give education grants of up to $25,000 a year, up to a total of $50,000 which would be “eligible for further education at any level or to pay down student debt,” the proposal noted.

“What we’re going to do is make sure communities like Flint, Baltimore, the South Bronx, St. Louis, rural communities whose infrastructure was never properly built in the first place, are first in line to rectify the injustices of the past and make sure they get everything they need to thrive in the future,” Ocasio-Cortez said at the time in her annoying, high-pitched fingernails on the chalkboard voice.

When Biden announced his so-called “American Jobs Plan,” he embraced the Civilian Climate Corps, saying it would “put a new generation of Americans to work conserving and restoring public lands and waters, increasing reforestation, increasing carbon sequestration in the agricultural sector, protecting biodiversity, improving access to recreation, and addressing the changing climate.”

This is all part of Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan, which is nothing more than a play on the Great Reset, a globalist plan basically to fundamentally change the world economy.

In case you missed it, last year we reported on The Great Reset and Build Back Better. You better familiarize yourself with it because if Democrats get their way, it’s coming.

DAVOS, SWITZERLAND- Have you heard about the “Great Reset?” How about “Build Back Better?”

The latter, used as a campaign slogan by Joe Biden is so much more than just a slogan.

It is part and parcel to the Great Reset,” and we are here to tell you that it is ugly. All you have to know is that it is an initiative being pushed by the World Economic Forum (WEF), part of the annual “Davos” meeting.

What is Davos? An annual gathering of the political and business elite which is typically held in Davos, Switzerland, where they basically plot on how to keep the peasants in check. However this year, apparently emboldened by public willingness to bend to authoritarian orders by the political class, they have much bigger plans.


According to Breitbart News, the WEF has announced plans for the 2021 event, which will be held virtually due to the pandemic, announcing, “The time to rebuild trust and to make crucial choices is fast approaching as the need to reset priorities and the urgency to reform systems grow stronger around the world.”

The WEF added that the time has come for “global leaders to come together to design a common recovery path and shape the Great Reset” in a so-called post-coronavirus world, saying that need was urgently needed.

The WEF then lays out plans the organization has for the rest of us and modeled after a world which they design. According to the WEF:

“An entire week of global programming will be dedicated to helping leaders choose innovative and bold solutions to stem the pandemic and drive a robust recovery over the next year.

“The Davos Agenda will also mark the launch of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset Initiative and begin the preparation of the Special Annual Meeting in the spring. Each day will focus on one of the five domains of the Great Reset Initiative.”

In another report by Breitbart, the outlet reported that a ghost from the past, John Kerry, who has been tapped as a “special climate advisor” under a theoretical Biden administration, is involved with the Davos initiative.

One such element sees the United States rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement—which is bad for America and which doesn’t hold countries such as China and India—identified as two of the biggest contributors to so-called “Climate Change”—accountable.

Rejoining that agreement would virtually gut President Trump’s “America First” strategy and would more than likely end up being “America Last.”

That accord is estimated to put over a million American jobs at risk, according to James Delingpole. It would also decimate the economy in four states—Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Delingpole also noted that joining that agreement would also be a driver of the Great Reset, which basically would have unelected global bureaucrats destroy the world’s economy by abolishing money, private property, and democracy for the sake of a “New World Order.”

Speaking to the WEF agenda, Kerry said:

“I know Joe Biden believes this. It’s not enough just to rejoin [the Paris Climate Agreement] for the United States. It’s not enough for us to do just the minimum of what [the agreement] requires,” Kerry said.

He continued:

“The Biden administration will focus on every sector of the American economy. There will be a 2035 goal to achieve net neutrality with respect to power and production…we’re ready to come back in and help to lead and raise the ambition in Glasgow to accelerate this incredible capacity for a transformation in the private sector.”

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that commission was looking forward to Biden rejoining the climate accords, referring to Biden as a “friend in the White House.”

Von der Leyen said that this new cooperation between the United States and the European Commission would include “writing a new rulebook for the digital economy and the digital society.”

She said:

“So, covering everything from data to infrastructure, but also talking about security and democracy, technology to fair taxation [emphasis added]—all of these are topics are on the table with digital change.

So ladies and gentlemen, the need for global cooperation and this acceleration of change will both be drivers of the Great Reset. And I see this as an unprecedented opportunity.

“It’s good to have a friend in the White House. We should not forget what kind of strength we can develop…we need a new agenda and of course, we will have to start with the most pressing issue which is COVID-19..the second big topic is climate change, fighting climate change…the third topic is the tech topic.”

None of this bodes well for the United States, as you can well imagine, as the sovereignty of our country will likely suffer tremendously.

The Davos Agenda will feature:

  • Heads of state and government from the G20 and international organizations giving special addresses on the state of the world.
  • Industry leaders and public figures discussing in leadership panels how to advance and accelerate public-private collaboration on critical issues such as coronavirus vaccination schemes and climate change, among others.
  • The Forum’s core communities, including its international business council, sharing their insight and recommendations from global, regional and industry initiatives on impact sessions.

Kerry also couldn’t resist taking a shot at President Trump and his supporters, saying that the nationalist-populist movement around the world is “a reflection of the inability of democratic governments in many parts of the world to deliver” on issues facing their citizens.

“What astounds me is that as many people still voted for the level of chaos and breach of law and order [whose supporters was it exactly who were rioting this past summer?] and breaking the standards and…I think that the underlying reason for that is something everybody has to examine,” Kerry said, referring to the over 74 million people who voted for President Trump in November.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a New World Order without the complicity of the media, and they admitted as much.

New York Times columnist Ben Smith said the media believes that they are the rule makers and set the national agenda—not Americans.

“I think in this election you saw major media outlets just much more careful about picking up, for instance, these stories about Hunter Biden just because they were on the internet in a way that Wikileaks came to dominate the campaign last cycle.”

The difference of course was that the Hunter Biden laptop stuff wasn’t part of a “Wikileaks” type of operation but was brought forward by a business owner who had possession of the laptop.

The media, with the exception of Newsmax, OANN, Fox News, the New York Post, and other conservative outlets ignored it. Why? They were on the Biden team, that’s why.

Smith continued, “I think that you’re seeing the mainstream media institutions become a bit more confident in trying to set the national agenda, trying to establish priorities that they think are the priorities rather than simply reacting to what’s happening on social media.”

You see, Smith admitted…the media decided THEY were going to set the agenda for the election, not act as reporters “reporting” the news. Social media did the same thing. They decided what the public needed to know and what they did not. 

Keep an eye out for Davos, which will be held between January 25-29. This will not end well for the American people. Bet on it. Especially if Biden prevails on January 6.
