The EPA Changed the Way it Makes Scientific Decisions to "Sustainable"
In January 2012, the EPA announced it was "realigning its entire research enterprise around the concept of sustainability." The new initiative is titled, "The Path Forward." Agency scientists and managers agreed to base their process on "the widely used definition of sustainability as outlined by the Brundtland Commission in 1987..."
The 1987 Brundtland Commission report, also known as "Our Common Future," stated that the earth was in danger, there was too much poverty and industrialized nations like the US were the cause. According to Brundtland, the only way to protect earth was for powerful central authorites to control all of society, the economy and the environment in an initiative it coined as "sustainable development."
Union Founder's Words on Socialism
"Socialism has no place in the hearts of those who would secure the fight for freedom and secure democracy." Samuel Gompers 1918

"Deja vu All Over Again?"
FDR won his first two terms by attacking the wealthy and pitting them against poor Americans. In 1932 he promised to "cut government operations by 25% and lower taxes", but did neither.
In 1936, he overwhelmingly won by raising taxes on the rich then redistributing the money to larger voting blocks in swing states using the WPA, Silver Purchase Act and the Agricultural Act.
By 1940, needing businesspeople to win the war, he called for unity among the same people he divided and won another decisive victory.
In 1944, FDR sidestepped laws prohibiting union money in elections by forming the nation's first Political Action Committee. This provided urban labor support. Fearing a backlash by Japanese prisoners if released from internment camps, he created an executive order to keep them imprisoned until 3 days after the elections. To gain the Polish American vote, FDR promised special treatment for Poland after the war. He won nearly 90% of their vote, and then betrayed the group by failing to offer the promised "self-determination" for Poland at the Yalta conference. Still, he won a fourth slim victory.
Upon his death, the NYT wrote, "Men will thank God on their knees 100 years from now FDR was in the White House."!
