Morano on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight: “You know the Green New Deal won’t pass… The solution to the Russian invasion is the same solution to climate change, it turned out to be the same solution to COVID too, which is more functional from home , less driving, less freedom, more restrictions on your freedom. Regardless of the crisis, it always empowers the administrative state, the bureaucrats and those in power. …
They are going to govern by declaration of emergency, by crisis management. This is how they want to do it. The COVID emergency declaration gave us, particularly in the blue states, some red states, all the governors became dictators practically overnight as they imposed whatever mandate they pleased. Whether it was masks, children, vaccine passports, whatever, they could do it because they were empowered.”
Tucker Carlson: There is a reason they are targeting Ukraine and that is to give you the Green New Deal whether you want it or not. Marc Morano is the author of “Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. He joins us tonight.
Mark, thank you very much for coming. He has written and thought so much and reported so much on the Green New Deal. There is no chance of Congress passing something like that because no one wants it, but a war that we are now being dragged into because of their policies is a perfect cover to give us the Green New Deal whether we want it or not.
>> Mark Morano: If it is. They introduced the green new deal in Congress and never scheduled hearings, votes, no town halls, no constituent services. Nobody wanted, they didn’t want to vote for him. They didn’t need a vote. Biden declared that every cabinet agency would be a climate agency. One of the biggest things about our energy that a lot of people miss is the defunding of our energy industry. Through the banking system, through the SEC. Now they are forcing everyone to release information about the weather. They now have their claws, the federal regulators, in every aspect of almost any business that goes forward if this continues, without a vote of Congress. That is what they are looking for.
And they know that the Green New Deal will not pass. The Covid lockdowns actually gave them a lot of Green New Deal aspects with the immediate lockdowns, but now going forward, they’re doubling down, using the Russian invasion.
The solution to the Russian invasion is the same solution to climate change, it also turned out to be the same solution to COVID, which is more work from home, less driving, less freedom, more restrictions on your freedom. Regardless of the crisis, it always empowers the administrative state, the bureaucrats and those in power.
>>Tucker Carlson: That may be the point of the crisis is to do that and this is not a civics show, but I hear the word “democracy” roll off the tongue of virtually every authoritarian in Washington. Is this how democracy works? Are you using a diversion to get massive social changes through the legislature and impose them by force? Is that democracy?
>>Marc Morano: No. What they have decided is how they are going to govern by declaring an emergency, by managing the crisis. This is how they want to do it. The COVID emergency declaration gave us, particularly in the blue states, some red states, all the governors became dictators practically overnight as they imposed whatever mandate they pleased. Whether it was masks, children, vaccine passports, whatever, they could do it because they were empowered.
Look back in history, the fall of the Roman Republic into an empire was due to the abuse of emergency powers. This was the centralization of power in the Middle Ages. The German republic, 1933, the 12-year declaration (state of emergency) in Germany led, of course, to all the abuses in Germany.
We now have the Patriot Act (because of the 9/11 Declaration of National Emergency in 2001), through this type of crisis management. Now that they’re using, right after the Covid crisis, they’re going to pile on this. People wouldn’t volunteer to give up their cars or trucks. But now you have reports like the International Energy Agency calling for car driving to stop on Sunday, they want to make odd/even plates for when you can drive, lower speed limits, taxes on sport utility vehicles. Because we are in this energy crisis. They are achieving policies that they could never achieve through elections.
>>Tucker Carlson: The people who will tell you the oceans are rising are buying $30 million beach houses. I do not believe you anymore!
[Laughs] Marc Morano, we’re out of time, but I appreciate you coming.
>>Marc Morano: Thank you Tucker.
