Marc Morano: Thank you very much, Sebastian. Happy to be here.
Sebastian Gorka: Marc, explain just in a thumbnail sketch why none of this should surprise people who are students of history as a child of parents who escaped socialism who understands the horrors of Stalin of Lenin of the quote-unquote ‘workers paradise’ that Karl Marx promised that actually led to the deaths of a hundred million humans in the last century. How do we understand the Green New Deal, the mask mandates, the vaccination mandates, as really a new form of socialism?
Marc Morano: Well that’s a great question and here’s a simple thumbnail: For decades the progressive movement has tried to impose and sought a one-party state in America. Climate activists from Tom Friedman on the pages of the New York Times extolled the virtues of China’s one-party system. UN climate chiefs talked about a centralized transformation and praised china for getting it right on climate. So what happened was they spent decades trying to scare us about overpopulation, global cooling, the amazon rainforest (allegedly disappearing), and finally, climate change, and they failed. A virus comes along and they realized that this cut across ideologies, cut across political affiliation and they were able to declare an emergency and suspend normal democracy. They were able to achieve their one-party state with an unelected bureaucracy.
So the climate activists became very jealous of COVID because everything COVID did depressed the economy, locked the economy down, kept people from moving, limiting travel, micromanaging every level of your life, weddings, funerals, whether you could go out, whether it was a justified reason, imposed curfews, bans on backyard barbecues. This is the kind of control they wanted for climate and the environment left for decades — COVID gave them that that’s why Jane Fonda said COVID was God’s gift to the Left.
Fast forward: The reason Joe Biden can try to impose a vaccine passport system in the United States is because of the COVID emergency health declaration where democracy is suspended. We are now in a Chinese-style one-party state. This is not something that’s going to happen in the future, it is being imposed on us now using the COVID 19 emergency declaration. They don’t want hearings in Congress, they don’t want to vote, they don’t want town halls, this is raw authoritarian power that they’ve sought for decades and they never thought in their wildest dreams that in a year and a half of COVID they could have this kind of success — but here we are.
China’s one-party state
Sebastian Gorka: So let me be clear, let me repackage what Marc Morano just told us: They’ve succeeded for a year and a half to shut down America, to tell you what you can do and now they’re going to use the same tactics the lockdowns, the shut-ins, the quarantines, the business closures, not for covid or COVID 20 or COVID 21 the excuse is going to be the climate. It’s all a watermelon it is green on the outside but a deep red communist on the inside. Educate yourself.

Bloomberg News: The political divide in the U.S. Congress has slowed efforts to pass climate legislation and is ‘very detrimental’ to the fight against global warming, she said.
‘China, the top emitter of greenhouse gases, is also the country that’s “doing it right” when it comes to addressing global warming, the United Nations’ chief climate official said.’ ‘China is also able to implement policies because its political system avoids some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S., Figueres said.’
Apple CEO Tim Cook claimed China ‘aligns completely with Apple’s values’ on climate – Cook defended CCP as ‘very fixated on doing the right things to avert climate change’
Tucker Carlson: Apple is now an active collaborator with China’s murderous police state
Video from 2017 of Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook: TIM COOK: “China has done an unbelievable job of lifting people out of poverty. They’ve done an incredible job and far beyond what any country has done. We were talking about 19, mid-90’s to today, the biggest change is the number of people that have been pulled out of poverty by far and we should all applaud that and we should all feel good about it and so there are, and the environmental leadership today, is very clear and it aligns completely with Apple’s values.”
QUESTION: “The Chinese environmental league, the government?”
COOK: “Yes, I mean they’re very fixated on doing the right things to avert climate change.”
Flashback 2019: Prof at Cambridge U. claims: ‘Democracy is the planet’s biggest enemy’ – ‘The authoritarian Chinese system has some advantages when it comes to addressing climate change’ – David Runciman in Foreign Policy mag: Runciman is a politics professor at Cambridge University and the author of How Democracy Ends: “If electoral democracy is inadequate to the task of addressing climate change, and the task is the most urgent one humanity faces, then other kinds of politics are urgently needed. The most radical alternative of all would be to consider moving beyond democracy altogether. The authoritarian Chinese system has some advantages when it comes to addressing climate change: One-party rule means freedom from electoral cycles and less need for public consultation. Technocratic solutions that put power in the hands of unelected experts could take key decisions out of the hands of voters.”
Former Harvard Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl of Czech Republic Comments on UN’s Christiana Figueres: ‘The totalitarian system rocks while democracy sucks!’ – Motl: ‘The actual goal of the climatism is to liquidate democracy, freedom, and prosperity in the world.’ – ‘Figueres’ totalitarian advertisements are indefensible by the struggle to reduce the CO2 emissions because China’s CO2 emissions were actually growing significantly more quickly than America’s emissions in recent years – and China overtook the U.S. as the world’s #1 producer of CO2 six years ago or so’ – ‘The goal of these “people” is to stop democracy, freedom, and prosperity regardless of the fate of Nature, the temperatures, or the CO2 concentrations.’
Flashback: UN climate chief Christiana Figueres seeks ‘centralized transformation’ that is ‘going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’ – ‘The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’Ex-Obama Energy
2015: Secretary Chu praises China’s one-party rule for ‘looking out for what’s best for their country’ – Former Sec. Stephen Chu: Excerpt: Chu praised China’s ability to take unilateral action on climate change. “China doesn’t have open elections, we do. That makes a big difference, for a number of reasons,” Chu said. – “It’s different in China because their government has to in the end look out for what’s best for their country, for their entire people, not a particular industry,” Chu added.
Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau praised Communist China. – “There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar,” Justin Trudeau told the group of women. “There is a flexibility that I know [then Prime Minister] Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”
2013: Trudeau under fire for expressing admiration for China’s ‘basic dictatorship’ – Trudeau later tried to minimize his comments: “It’s ridiculous for anyone to suggest that I of all people would trade our rights and freedoms for any other system of (government).”
Communist Party of China CPC always focuses on well-being of Chinese people, says former Costa Rican president: The Communist Party of China (CPC) has always focused on the wellbeing of the Chinese people since it was founded 100 years ago, former Costa Rican President Jose Maria Figueres has said. In an interview with Xinhua, Figueres lauded China’s remarkable achievements made under the leadership of the CPC, including the tremendous economic growth over the last decades and China’s increasingly important role in the international arena.
“If I may focus on one element, it would be that throughout the 100 years, the CPC has concentrated on the wellbeing of the Chinese people,” said Figueres, who served as Costa Rican president between 1994 and 1998.
The focus has always been “on the people, on their wellbeing, on their opportunities to lead meaningful lives with good health, good education and good opportunities to carry out their dreams,” he said.
Dennis Ambler comments: He seems ignorant of the Great Leap Forward: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/great-leap-forward.asp
- It is estimated that between 30 and 45 million Chinese citizens died due to famine, execution, and forced labor, along with massive economic and environmental destruction.
- The Great Leap Forward remains the largest episode of non-wartime mass killing in human history, and a clear example of the failures of socialism and economic central planning.

Biden Treasury nominee: China is a ‘shining example’ of ‘smart’ economic policy – By Jordan Schachtel – A top Biden Administration Treasury nominee wants to model America’s economic system after the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) centralized control platform. Saule Omarova, the Biden Administration’s pick for comptroller of the currency, recently praised the Chinese government’s monetary system for its “shining example” of “smart pro-innovation policy.” Yes, she couched the language in “critics of” format, but it’s clear, given her background and published work, that this is her personal view. … Omarova is a true radical, according to her published work and biographical background. Educated at Moscow State University when it was under Soviet control, she wrote her dissertation on Karl Marx and communist economics, but the university has reportedly helped bury her thesis from public view. Moreover, Omarova has removed any reference to this work in her Cornell Law School CV. The Biden Treasury nominee has long advocated for a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) system that allows the federal government to reward what it deems “productive” behavior. The CBDC system, the Western version of China’s Corporate Social Credit System (CSCS), grants the government the ability to digitally and instantly remove the wealth of any non-compliant citizen.
