ANOTHER FREEBIE? Bernie Sanders Vows to Provide ‘Year-Round, Free Universal School Meals’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.29.19

Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders called for another federal program this week; saying the government should provide “year-round, free universal school meals” for every student in America.

“‘School lunch debt’ should not exist in the wealthiest country in the history of the world. When we are in the White House, we are going to provide year-round, free universal school meals,” posted Sanders on Instagram.

The school lunch program is the latest far-left proposal from Sanders, whose ‘Green New Deal’ would effectively nationalize upwards of 30% of the entire American economy.

“Atop our existing government spending, comprising some 40% of GDP, the Vermont Senator wouldn’t just nationalize one-fifth of the economy with a ‘Medicare For all’ bill eliminating private health insurance. Under his Green New Deal plan, he would also nationalize most of the energy sector,” reports the Washington Examiner.

“At a mere $16.3 trillion, the Sanders plan would go beyond simply spending measures to increase climate-focused research and development. It would literally centralize the means of domestic energy production,” adds the Examiner.

“What we need to do is have an aggressive federal government. You can’t nibble around the edges anymore. We need to transform our energy system, that means a massive increase in sustainable energy,” Sanders told MSNBC.

“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives. Communities of color,  working class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately,” writes Sanders.

APOCALYPSE NOW? BBC News Claims Humans Have Just 18 MONTHS to ‘Save the Planet’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.19

Forget the 12 year deadline touted by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, and Bernie Sanders; the BBC News is now reporting that humans have just 18 months to “save the planet.”

“Do you remember the good old days when we had ‘12 years to save the planet’? Now it seems, there’s a growing consensus that the next 18 months will be critical in dealing with the global heating crisis, among other environmental challenges,” reports the BBC. “Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that to keep the rise in global temperatures below 1.5C this century, emissions of carbon dioxide would have to be cut by 45% by 2030.”

“But today, observers recognise that the decisive, political steps to enable the cuts in carbon to take place will have to happen before the end of next year,” adds the article. “The idea that 2020 is a firm deadline was eloquently addressed by one of the world’s top climate scientists, speaking back in 2017.”

“The climate math is brutally clear: While the world can’t be healed within the next few years, it may be fatally wounded by negligence until 2020,” said one scientist.

Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his non-stop climate crusade last week; suggesting the USA should direct upwards of $1.5 trillion to reduce the global risks posed by rising temperatures.

“Instead of spending $1.5 trillion on weapons to kill one other, let us unite against the common enemy that is climate change,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders blamed the current heat-wave sweeping the Northeast USA on Donald Trump’s two-year presidency Friday; saying the Commander-in-Chief is “is threatening the lives of our children.”

“The past 5 years are the hottest on record
This June is the hottest June recorded
Thousands die in heatwaves around the world

Trump’s ignorance is threatening the lives of our children. For their sake, we must stand up to the fossil fuel industry and build a green economy,” posted Sanders on social media.

BACK TO THE USSR: Bernie Says ‘Fossil Fuel Executives Should be Criminally Prosecuted’

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders continued his all-out war on the energy industry this week; saying fossil fuel executives “should be criminally prosecuted” for the “destruction they have knowingly caused.”

“Fossil fuel executives should be criminally prosecuted for the destruction they have knowingly caused,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders unveiled his plan to combat climate change Thursday; allocating more than $16 trillion to help the US become 100% reliant on renewable energy by 2050.

“While the Vermont senator had already endorsed the sweeping Democratic proposal to combat climate change and had teamed up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York on climate legislation, Sanders’ climate plan provides the most detail yet on how he envisions the climate change moonshot taking shape if he is elected president,” reports USA Today.

Sanders claims the proposal will “pay for itself” over a 15 year period; requiring more than 20 million new jobs.

“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives. Communities of color,  working class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately,” writes Sanders.

The proposal aims to: Create a climate justice resiliency fund, decarbonize the shipping industry, replace all shipping trucks, end greed in our energy system, and expand the climate justice movement.

“The scope of the challenge ahead of us shares similarities with the crisis faced by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1940s. Battling a world war on two fronts—both in the East and the West—the United States came together, and within three short years restructured the entire economy in order to win the war and defeat fascism. As president, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of addressing the climate crisis and act immediately to mobilize millions of people across the country in support of the Green New Deal. From the Oval Office to the streets, Bernie will generate the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with support for frontline and vulnerable communities and massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” adds the statement.
