Leftist Progressives - #3150 - Van Jones and MoveOn.org Uses Kids to Push Left-Wing Initiative - Breitbart (2) Van Jones & Co. Unveil 'Contract for the American Dream' - The Blaze (3) Militant Environmentalists Call for Executions and 'Decisive Ecological Warfare' - The Blaze


Van Jones and Co. Unveil Contract for the American Dream - The Blaze - As if Van Jones’ “progressive Tea Party” — a.k.a. Rebuild the Dream — were not enough, the former green jobs czar has assembled an all-star cast of left-wing movers, including MoveOn.org executive director Justin Ruben and Rep. Jan Schakowsky, to help debut the group’s new “Contract for the American Dream.” Does the title sound familiar? That‘s because Jones and company have borrowed the contract’s concept, and title, from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s 1994 Contract with America. Rebuild the Dream’s leaders reportedly describe their contract as a “progressive economic vision crafted by 125,000 Americans … to get the economy back on track.” Organizers allege the contract’s debut will involve a nationwide day of action and an ad placement in The New York Times to run at some point this week. Huffington Post explains the premise behind the movement: The basic premise of the campaign is that America isn’t broke, it’s merely imbalanced. In order to stabilize the economy, politicians should make substantial investments in infrastructure, energy, education and the social safety net, tax the rich, end the wars, and create a wider revenue base through job creation. Here are the 10 points - I. Invest in America's Infrastructure II. Create 21st Century Energy Jobs III. Invest in Public Education IV. Offer Medicare for All V. Make Work Pay VI. Secure Social Security VII. Return to Fairer Tax Rates VIII. End the Wars and Invest at Home IX. Tax Wall Street Speculation X. Strengthen Democracy.  Read more..........

'Deep Green Resistance' - Militant Environmentalists Call for Executions and 'Decisive Ecological Warfare' - The Blaze - “Do we need a militant movement to save the planet (and ourselves)?” That was the question posed in recent article on the left-wing site Alternet when it interviewed a group of radical environmentalists who are allegedly endorsing “Decisive Ecological Warfare.” And in order to realize their goal of ridding the planet of industrial civilization — even modern agriculture — the group intends to employ tactics “of both militaries and insurgents the world over.” One of the activists, Derrick Jensen, allegedly even believes those who destroy the environment should be summarily executed: “If it were up to me, all the people associated with the Gulf oil spill, which is murdering the Gulf, would be executed. That would be part of the function of a state,” said Jensen. In addition to Jensen, the two other environmentalists interviewed in the article – Lierre Keith, and Aric McBay — have spearheaded a fringe movement called the “Deep Green Resistance” (with a book of the same name) that calls for “direct attacks on infrastructure” and an annihilation of civilization as we know it. Strategy A: Engage in direct militant actions against industrial infrastructure, especially energy infrastructure. Strategy B: Aid and participate in ongoing social and ecological justice struggles; promote equality and undermine exploitation by those in power. Strategy C: Defend the land and prevent the expansion of industrial logging, mining, construction, and so on, such that more intact land and species will remain when civilization does collapse. Strategy D: Build and mobilize resistance organizations that will support the above activities, including decentralized training, recruitment, logistical support, and so on. Strategy E: Rebuild a sustainable subsistence base for human societies (including perennial polycultures for food) and localized democratic communities that uphold human rights.  Read entire article...... AW:  Please read this, although it sounds too extreme to actually happen, this is why communities all over the United States are organizing to research and determine if their local governments are participating in 'Sustainable' programs, ICLEI and/or UN Agenda 21, and how to mobilize against theses extreme attacks on private property rights.
