John Holdren: Lets Use Cap and Trade Taxes to Give Money to Other Countries

It looks like John Holdren is back and as radical as ever. Our own Joe Schoffstall unearthed Holdren's latest insanity and CNS News dug into the details to provide context for exactly what this all means:

John P. Holdren, who then-President-elect Barack Obama nominated as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in December 2008, called just five months before his nomination for a global climate-change agreement that would allow wealth to be redistributed from countries in the global "North" to countries in the "South."

On the July 3, 2008 edition of the program “Democracy NOW!” Holdren told host Amy Goodman: “It’s important that we have a global agreement on how we are going to limit the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases going forward, and an agreement that will include the tropical forests, that will include ways to transfer some of the revenues from carbon taxes or carbon emission permits in the North to pay for reduced deforestation in the South.”

Yes, you did hear that correctly. The Obama administration's top science adviser did just advocate for imposing economy-crushing taxes on the United States and give tax revenue from it to other countries. Of course, what you might not know is this isn't the first time Holdren has advocated for global wealth redistribution in the name of global warming.

You know what they say... green on the outside; red on the inside:

It is incredibly disturbing to see just how pervasive radicals are in this administration. I mean this guy is calling for us to destroy our own economy in order to temporarily provide an even greater amount of government welfare to other countries. It doesn't get much more radical than that.

And John Holdren isn't even the only one in this administration whose calling for a radical redistribution of wealth. As we found out yesterday Obama's new Medicare/Medicaid boss hates free markets and loves government redistribution of wealth. Plus we all remember that Obama himself is fond of "spreading the wealth around".

Yet Obama himself, as well as the rest of his administration, continue to insist that they care about creating jobs in America. Both cannot be true. The choice is clear, either you destroy the American economy in order to redistribute wealth or you embrace the free market and prosperity along with it. One or the other.

If Obama wants to use the government to radically redistribute wealth globally then he has to give up the farce that he cares at all about the American economy. If Obama wants to create wealth rather than redistribute it he must get the government out of the way of the free market. A first step down the road to wealth and job creation. at least symbolically, is to fire John Holdren and publicly reject his radical stances.

In case the video evidence of the radical nature of many important figures in the Obama administration that has come to light thus far isn't convincing enough don't worry. We have a lot more coming shortly. Stay tuned.
