Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders went full USSR on social media Friday; saying the United States can “no longer tolerate billionaires becoming obscenely rich at a time of unprecedented pain and suffering.”
“In my view, we can no longer tolerate billionaires becoming obscenely rich at a time of unprecedented economic pain and suffering. The time has come to tax their wealth and break up tech giants and other huge conglomerates that have monopolized nearly every sector of our economy,” posted Sanders on Twitter.

BACK TO THE USSR! Elizabeth Warren Proposes ‘Department of Economic Development’ to Regulate Economy
Rising Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren vowed to promote “Economic Patriotism” in a new campaign ad this week; proposing the creation of a “Department of Economic Development” to regulate large corporations.
“A lot of giant companies refer to themselves as ‘American.’ But let’s face it, they only have one real loyalty: Their shareholders. A Warren administration will halt the hollowing out of American cities and create good American jobs. Here’s how,” she posted on social media.

“They have no loyalty or allegiance to America. Levi’s blue jeans? Only two percent of their factories are here in America,” Warren said. “The maker of the famous No.2 pencil — they make most of those pencils in China and Mexico. And General Electric — they recently shipped jobs from Wisconsin, across the border to Canada.”
“If they can close up an American factory and ship jobs overseas to save a nickel, that is exactly what they’ll do,” she continued. “In a Warren administration, government policy will support American workers. I call it ‘Economic Patriotism.'”
“This new agency will have a single mission,” she added, referring to the Department of Economic Development. “Defend and create American jobs. And we’ll direct the new agency to use aggressive new tools… [and] we’ll use them to boost American workers.”

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.
