President Trump Rips Green New Deal Insanity in New Mexico Rally

Sept. 17, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump gave a hearty 2020 campaign speech to an overflow crowd in Albuquerque, New Mexico last night, directed, as he said, to “the forgotten men and women” who want a future for their children and the country.

There was no bowing at this rally to the British Empire’s Malthusian dictate that the human race give up fossil fuels to save the planet from a non-existent “man-made climate crisis.” First up in President Trump’s list of his administration’s successes, was that he has rolled back “the war on energy,” and geared up U.S. oil and gas production.

The U.S. is the number-one oil and gas producer in the world now, and that means more jobs, higher wages, and energy independence, he told the crowd. “Under the Green New Deal that all goes away.... You can forget it. No more cows, no more airplanes. No more trips, a single car—make it electric, a single car. You’re not allowed to travel more than 162 miles.

“They’ll call us the hermit nation; we’ll never leave our house now. It’s crazy!”

Every major Democratic candidate wants to eliminate oil and gas, he warned.

Interestingly, one of the strongest points where he drew applause, came later to his attack on the Democrats for wanting to indoctrinate our students with such “left-wing ideology.”

The British gambit to sink Trump into an Iran military strike was nowhere to be heard in his New Mexico speech. Trump made brief reference to the tough sanctions he has placed on Iran, but there was no mention of any pending crisis. His only reference to last weekend’s bombing of the Saudi oil refinery was an implicit one, when he pointed out that if a few years ago the U.S. would have faced “a problem” like we saw two days ago in the Southwest Asia, there would have been panic, but now, he said, we are energy independent.
