Glenn Beck, 11.15.2010: Building The ‘People of The Decade’

Glenn uses the beginning of this program to recap many of the ‘crazy’ things he has told people about in the last four years that have come true from getting out of the stock market, protecting your 401(k), getting out of debt, the monetization of the federal debt by the Federal Reserve mafia, the rise in the price of gold, the decline of Mexico, the progressives taking off their masks, the unions, communists, death panels, etc.  Glenn has enlisted 912SuperSeniors.org and AsaMom.org to be inflation watchdogs.

He also covers how congressmen and senators should never make more than our soldiers and have the exact same benefits as those same Americans standing on the wall for us. He then goes into his plan for the new year by simplifying his life by cutting their stuff in half in order to prepare for the upcoming nastiness. There is an estimate $25K in extra stuff just sitting around peoples homes which could be sold to be used as a cushion, food stock, paying down debt, etc.  He plans on building the ‘People of the Decade’ by creating people that are ready for the disaster so as to be ready for those that did not.  He also covers the new boycott of Sarah Palin’s ‘Alaska’ by Credo Mobile (Working Assets) which is run by Michael Kieschnick, who also established George Soros’ ‘Secretary of State’ project.  Credo also funds many of Soros funded progressive projects.

Michael has a Ph.D. in public policy from Harvard University, and earned bachelor’s degrees in biology and economics at Stanford University.

In his spare time, he helps run the Secretary of State Project, which works to elect reform candidates to the critical position of chief election officer at the state level.

Mr. Kieschnick is a fellow at the New Politics Institute. Yet another think tank operating under the radar which everybody should become familiar with.

“Working like a conventional policy-oriented think tank, NPI will assemble some of the finest minds in progressive politics, the non-profit world and the private sector to study, master, incubate and promote new strategies, technologies and techniques for the rapidly changing politics of this new century.” [1]

From SourceWatch:

The New Politics Institute, a think tank of the New Democrat Network (NDN), was launched May 10, 2005. The NPI was provided with a major start-up grant by Andy and Deborah Rappaport.[1]

Mission

NPI “has been established by people from across the country and across the political spectrum to help progressives succeed on the dynamic new battlefield of 21st century politics.”

“Working like a conventional policy-oriented think tank, NPI will assemble some of the finest minds in progressive politics, the non-profit world and the private sector to study, master, incubate and promote new strategies, technologies and techniques for the rapidly changing politics of this new century.” [1]

Start-Up Funding

“The NPI will have a budget of $1.5 million to $2 million, and funding will come primarily” from “Bay Area philanthropists Andy and Deborah Rappaport [who] have provided NPI a substantial start-up grant.” Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is “a major partner in the start-up phase” of NPI. [21][22]

Projects

“NPI’s first several projects will include a new report on the Hispanic electorate by NPI Fellow Sergio Bendixen, a new major report on building a new majority coalition by prominent pollster and strategist Mark Penn and a report on the future of progressive media by NPI Fellow Jamie Daves. NPI will also be showcasing the internet television technology of a new start-up, Participatory Culture.” [23]

Simon Rosenberg: Inspiration

“The New Politics Institute (NPI) will leave it to others to develop a future policy agenda for the party. Simon Rosenberg, founder of the New Democrat Network and the inspiration behind the new institute, said the new group will study what the rise of the conservative movement, anticipated demographic changes in the country and the ‘post-broadcasting’ world of new media mean for Democrats’ hopes of winning elections.

“‘Until we can really get our act together and win elections, all the policy white papers aren’t going to do us a lot of good,’ said Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, whose Daily Kos is one of the most popular political blogs on the Internet and who is an adviser to the institute.

“Other advisers include a cross section of centrists and liberals, among them Joe Trippi, who was for a time Howard Dean‘s presidential campaign manager; Gina Glantz of the Service Employees International Union; pollster Mark Penn; organizer Cecile Richards, president of America Votes; and pollster Sergio Bendixen, an expert on Hispanic trends.” –Jim VandeHei, Washington Post, May 14, 2005.
