“The best of Americans went up those smoke-filled stairwells, knowing they may never come down,” says TPPF’s Kevin Roberts. “The best of America donned the uniforms of our armed forces and went abroad to confront our enemies.

What to know: They’re coming—the foot soldiers of Civilian Climate Corps.

The TPPF take: This is going to get annoying and expensive.

“Though the CCC is said to support such innocuous projects as solar panels and parks, it’s really a slush fund for progressive activism paid for by your tax dollars,” says TPPF’s Jason Isaac. “The CCC also plans to extend taxpayer dollars to ‘providing education on climate change,’ which is code for funding political activist groups like Greenpeace, the Sunrise Movement, and Movement for Black Lives.”
