Green Trojan Horse: Socialism, Climate Change, and Depopulation

The progressive left is praising Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal, a plan devised by socialists to save the planet from global climate change.

‘China Must Be Destroyed’

There’s an old story from Roman history about Cato the Elder trolling the peaceniks in the Roman Senate by dropping figs on the floor.

Lehman and Bear Stearns-styled Repo Market Risks Remain In Banking
