Joel Rogers: Original Mastermind of the “Green Economy”
Posted By Discover The Networks On May 4, 2010 @ 12:42 pm In DTN Profiles | No Comments
In 1992, Joel Rogers co-founded the New Party , a Marxist coalition that endorsed and helped elect left-wing political candidates; one of its most noteworthy members  in the mid-1990s was Barack Obama. After the New Party closed its doors in 1997, it was reinvented the following year by Joel Rogers’ partner, Daniel Cantor, as the Working Families Party , which became a powerful front group for ACORN .
Rogers has been lauded by Van Jones , President Obama ’s disgraced “green czar” and now a member of the Center for American Progress . Jones has praised  Rogers’ “extraordinary set of achievements,” including the creation of “an economic model” that is “now reflected in the White House”; a “new politics” — based upon the New Party  and the Working Families Party  — that represent “the basic framework for what just took over the White House [when Obama was elected]”; and “a new energy paradigm” as outlined by the Apollo Alliance , an organization Rogers helped create, and on whose board Van Jones sat.
