Now the Climate Scammers are Coming for Your Homes

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Seriously, how much WINNING can one nation take?  – Believe it or not, the NASDAQ did not close at a new record high on Friday, falling slightly to break an 11-trading day winning streak. But the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials did manage new record closings, making Friday yet another banner day for investors. The WINNING truly never grows old.

The Enviro-Marxists are now coming for your homes. – As we come to the end of 2019, it is only appropriate that the radical leftist climate change lobby signals its clear intent to deprive you of yet another basic human liberty: The right to own your own home.

After all, 2019 was the year in which the insane Green New Deal introduced by the insane Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed to deny you the right to travel by air, own your own automobile, enjoy affordable power and home heating bills and eat beef – due to all the cow farts, you know. It was the year in which, during the summer, the climate alarmists began to mount an organized, global effort to deprive those who can afford them of any vacations that involve long-haul flights. It was the year that a George Soros-funded New York State Attorney General’s office attempted to convince a court to hold ExxonMobil responsible for knowing about “climate change” a full quarter century before anyone actually knew about it, only to be laughed out of the room by the state’s own supreme court.

So, at the end of a year such as this one, you had to figure it was inevitable that the Enviro-Marxist left would end it with yet another assault on free enterprise and Americans’ civil liberties.  Hey, it’s what these people do.

Writing at the communist publication The Nation, some urban planner from…wait for it….California – because of course this nitwit is from California – named Kian Goh is now proposing that it would be just a peachy idea for the government to end the basic American right to own private property in general, and single-family homes specifically. Because, climate change, or something.

You can tell just from reading the title of Mr. Goh’s piece – “California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable” – that it’s going to be a smorgasbord of Enviro-Marxist fright tactics wedded to openly Marxist policy proposals, and Goh does not disappoint, oh, no. All you really need to know about the piece, in fact, is contained in the subhead that reads, “If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership.”

Oh. Sounds legit, right? Well, it does if you are a hopelessly ignorant nitwit who wants to the government to dictate every step you take every day of your life, which sadly describes roughly 40% of the U.S. population today, and about 90% of the employees in the nation’s corrupt news media.

I’m old enough to remember when leftist Democrats pretended to be all for individual rights to home ownership. That was waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the…wait for it … 1990s when Bill Clinton was forcing Fannie May and Freddie Mac to give mortgage loans to pretty much anyone who wanted one, even to those who manifestly could not afford them. Because, fairness, or something. That, by the way, was also the administration of Vice President Al Gore, the scam artist who has profited perhaps more than anyone on earth from pushing the climate scam during the 21st century.

But that’s all changed now and Mr. Goh is the new left’s poster child. Goh’s basic thesis is to use the issue of California wildfires as a tool to attack private housing. He is especially against building individual homes in rural areas, basically because they’re, er, flammable. Oh, yeah, and he’s also opposed to – you’ll never guess – “cheap energy”, i.e., affordable utility bills:

The growth of urban regions in the second half of the 20th century has been dominated by economic development, aspirations of home ownership, and belief in the importance of private property. Cities and towns have expanded in increasingly disperse fashion, fueled by cheap energy.

His proposed solution is, of course, less individual freedom, replaced by government command-and-control, i.e., Marxism:

To engage with these challenges, we need to do more than upgrade the powerlines or stage a public takeover of the utility companies. We need to rethink the ideologies that govern how we plan and build our homes.

Next, he plays the race card in a transparent attempt to curry favor with minorities:

In and around so many cities, new building technologies, racist lending practices, systemic criminalization of the poor and people of color, and uneven patterns of “creative destruction”—that is, cycles of investment and disinvestment across city centers and suburbs—favored one kind of residential development: single-family houses for those deemed qualified, which typically meant white, middle-class families.

So predictable. So tiresome. So utterly Alinskyite.

The next step in this paint-by-the-numbers leftist climate alarm piece is of course to blame the fires on “climate change” even though the frequency and intensity of U.S. forest fires has in fact fallen since all the climate alarmism as a stalking horse for Marxism began in the late 1980s:

The valorizing of homeownership and property rights results not only in increased exposure to climate-change-fueled fires, but also in our inadequate responses to them.

Then he goes on to signal the next step to come in this Enviro-Marxist campaign to deprive Americans of their rights: The assault on individual rights to own homes on the coast:

Discussions have surged over the last two years about the need for coastal communities to retreat further inland as they face rising sea levels—a seemingly more imminent threat. How should we broach the more uncertain risks of fire?

This dude has your future all planned out for you, you just don’t know it yet.

And here comes the money paragraph, the paragraph in which Goh very predictably exposes himself as a supporter of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, who has chosen to enlist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her Green New Deal as his campaign’s mascot:

There are other options, in theory: Rental housing serves many cities around the world well, although we should be wary about perpetuating the power of landlords in this country without delinking ownership from wealth creation. There has been resurgent interest in government-planned and -built public housing, including recent legislation proposed by Ilhan OmarAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Bernie Sanders that would shore up and invigorate the federal system. The Green New Deal invokes prior eras of government intervention, lending itself to revitalized thinking about the social value of public goods.

The Climate Scam always has been and always will be a stalking horse for the global implementation of Marxist-style socialism. Every suggested “solution” ever offered by any adherent to Climate Change religious dogma has, without exception, involved a Soviet-style command-and-control central government depriving individuals of their rights and prosperity.

The right to own personal property was enshrined by the founders of this country because they understood that it was a crucial tool in maintaining personal freedom. As such, it should surprise no one that the climate scammers would seek to deprive Americans of that key right, along with their liberty and pursuit of happiness.

They are telling you everything they want to do to you, folks – all you have to do is read and listen.

That is all.

    Evidently, it is Ms. Goh (although who really knows in California).

    Ms. Goh is supposedly an architect and urban planner, who is ‘researching the relationships between urban ecological design, spatial politics, and social mobilization in the context of climate change and global urbanization’, if you’re into that. In other words, another post-modern academic parasite.

    Her architectural theme is ‘SUPER-INTERESTING!’

      Oh, it’s a “her”? I didn’t even notice, or care to figure it out.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - December 28, 2019

        Either way, she/he/it can Goh to hell.

    The strategy is not just to eliminate individual liberty, it is to centrally corral everyone into state-controlled blocs (think Soviet-era housing…).

    It is the same reason they push ‘high-speed rail’, because individuals driving their own vehicles when and where they wish is personal liberty that cannot be tolerated and must be crushed.

      That’s the reason the release of Moller’s “Skycar” gets pushed back year after year; too much “freedom” for the average Joe.

    I’ll think about giving up private property when Lizzie gives up her millions; the al-Bama’s give up their millions and homes; Bernie gives up his properties and millions; when CheatinGropinQuid Pro gives up his mysterious newfound wealth; then the House Cud Chewer gives up all her properties, bank accounts and homes; when Blobberg distributes all of his wealth and eschews armed bodyguards; when the Clintons give up their cash; when George Soros redistributes all of his wealth, too. Then tell me I can’t have private property.

    I hope the author of that ridiculous notion has bodyguards. She may have just lit a fuse.

    Ok, first California Libs BAN the clearing of deadwood and debris from around Public Utility transmission lines (cause “nature”), then blame the resulting fires on the utility? Now it’s the fault of the houses?
    Google “San Francisco Micro-Apartments” to get a feel for all “they” think you need.

    The Climate Scam is just a part of One World Government. (That used to be the sign of an eccentric, to talk about this “One World Government.”) Fact is, the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11) speaks of a people who want a single world government, and a tower with which to throw off the threat from G0D. That was an attempt at a One World Government. That’s what Globalism is: an attempt to throw off the power of G0D.

    Which is all the more troubling that certain church leaders, (including current Pope Nimrod I,) are willingly joining this One World movement. Private property is only one of the things they want to control: their ultimate goal is total control over everything.

    They deceive themselves into thinking that they can control weather, when they can’t even make a good weather forecast more than a week out! (see “chaos theory”) Fluid dynamics are way beyond prediction, even with the possibility of incredible computational power via AI.

    The Climate Scam is an evil, corrupt conceit, a dishonorable way to redistribute wealth and an attempt to make man into god. Enter G0D: one flick of His finger, and we’re an ice ball or an inferno, no matter what man attempts.

    When Al Gore was born there were approximately 7,000 polar bears on the planet. Now, after years of his yammering about how global warming was going to kill off all of the polar bears, their numbers are down to just around 25,000.

    Lucy of Charlie Brown fame to Linus: “Liberal scientist can prove that climate change is real”.
    Linus to Lucy: “They can’t even tell the difference between boys and girls”.

    Anyone who promotes or leads this (bowl) “movement” of “Climate Change” fraud should have their “carbon footprint” reduced to ZERO.

    Nature, which all the followers of the same (bowl) “movement” seem to bow down to, is beautiful, but also unforgiving of stupidity, with deadly consequences.

    Humans are the only species who allow stupidity to survive and thrive.

    If any animal is stupid it will soon die, or be killed by a smarter animal/predator. It is time we quit supporting stupid; let the stupid fend for themselves, and they will either figure out how to smarten up pretty quickly, or they will fail and die. Twenty to forty percent of the country are certifiable morons. They need to be ignored, their illogical opinions are baseless and, as a group, they contribute little of value to society; they also happen to universally vote for Democrats. I’m not saying they should be Seth Rich(ed), what I am saying is we should stop supporting stupidity via government programs and parents must stop supporting their ignorant brats and force them to smarten up, and most importantly: GROW UP!

    As Ron White said: “You can’t fix stupid” but we can start punishing stupid rather than rewarding it.
