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 [2], a Marxist coalition that endorsed and helped elect left-wing political candidates; one of its most noteworthy members [3] 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 [4], which became a powerful front group for ACORN [5].

Rogers has been lauded by Van Jones [6]President Obama [7]’s disgraced “green czar” and now a member of the Center for American Progress [8]. Jones has praised [9] 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 [2] and the Working Families Party [4] — 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 [10], an organization Rogers helped create, and on whose board Van Jones sat.
