Alex Jones has announced the ‘Occupy The Federal Reserve’ movement today on his radio program. He starts out this program by explaining that all corporations and stockholders aren’t evil and puts the spotlight on the true culprits (TPTF banks) with planned stops at the three Texas Federal Reserve Banks over the weekend (and possibly a local Bank of America branch on Monday). (more…)
The ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement has arrived in Kona, Hawaii complete with ‘tax the rich’ posters, and when asked by the demonstrators which side of the fight I was on, I had to reply that I have been a libertarian for decades and a Ron Paul supporter – neither nanny-state left nor corporate big government right. I understand what these folks are trying to accomplish, but I do see them as doing the Fed’s and Soros’ dirty work of taking out the competition without said elitists getting their hands dirty. Better to take the head of the beast off by abolishing the Federal Reserve System (and thereby the IRS) then to be a ‘useful idiot’ for the very people enslaving you.
(Editor’s Note: I’ve been an independent voter for some three decades, and have watched as progressive president after progressive president has led this country down the garden path to global integration. Today, I fear for my country’s future as I have not ever feared.)
In 1944, 730 delegates from 44 Allied Nations sat down in a posh hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire and hammered out a global financial policy that maintained fixed exchange rates linked to the US dollar and a promise that America would keep gold at $35 an ounce. The International Monetary Fund and the predecessor to the World Bank were both established at this conference being lead by Harry Dexter White (Treasury Official, CFR member, and accused soviet spy) and John Maynard Keynes (yes, that british economist, born in 1883, who thought the government should be deeply involved in the private sector). As the global economy grew, more reserves and liquidity were required until in 1971, Richard Nixon took America off the gold standard (which was backing the US dollar as a reserve currency), and America’s currency became entirely fiat with only a federally backed promise. The Bretton Woods agreement ended and floating exchange rates were used as a replacement.
Now for the scary part.
Recently, I received a link to an article about George Soros funding a second Bretton Woods conference of economists and globalist bankers on April 8th through the 11th at the same posh hotel in New Hampshire. This conference is being sponsored by a Soros moneychild named the Institute for New Economic Thinking which was started with a $50 million pledge from the globalist himself after conversations with Anatole Kaletsky, former Economic Editor of UK’s The Times. Mr. Kaletsky is commonly punked by satiracal UK magazine, Private Eye, because of his faulty economic predictions. You may experience the same cold shivers I experienced when you check out the advisory board for this particular think-tank including but not limited to a faculty member of the New School for Social Research (remember those folks promoting seizure of your 401(k)?), and one of our favs, Drummond Pike, founder of the Tides Foundation.
(Editor’s Note: Get comfy kids. Yes, I found a video and stumbled into a rabbit hole. H/T PatriotsNetwork for the video.)
The Algebra Project:
The Algebra Project was founded in 1982 by a Harlem-born and Harvard-educated Civil Rights’ leader, Dr. Robert P. Moses through the use of his MacArthur Fellowship award. Over the past two decades, AP grew from teaching math in one school in Cambridge, MA, to more than 200 middle schools across the country by the late 1990s, developing successful models of whole-school and community change.
AP’s unique approach to school reform intentionally develops sustainable, student-centered models by building coalitions of stakeholders within the local communities, particularly the historically underserved population. Since 2000, we have continued to provide the context in which students, schools, parents and communities maximize local resources and take ownership of their own community building and mathematics education reform efforts, which now include high school as well as middle grade initiatives.
The civil rights work in the 1960s culminated in the national response to protect a fundamental right: the right to vote. Our current work seeks a national response to establish a fundamental right: the right of every child to a quality public school education.
I cannot let these two groups, (The Algebra Project and Young People’s Project), and this particular topic go by without some attention, as the propaganda and indoctrination continues (and yes, Soros is in the background).
In a simple nutshell: Robert Moses, a civil rights’ activist (who was mentored by Ella Baker; bio here) started the Algebra Project with funding from a MacArthur Fellowship to tutor and elevate the math scores of disenfranchised and minority children to help them be more prepared for higher learning institutions. It sounds like a noble, worthy goal that no one would deny until one hears about the National Student Bill of Rights from an Baltimore Algebra Project member and realizes that these children do not know who exactly is directing them.
For people who don’t know what the Algebra Project is; it is a youth run tutoring program where high school students and also some older members who are in college (like me) tutor math for an hour and a half after school and also organize for quality education as a Constitutional right. So, it’s a youth run program where the tutors are actually paid to improve the math skills and math literacy, build political awareness and exercise political power as students, as young people. – Chris Goodman (Rap Name: Comrade), Baltimore City Algebra Project
We’ve been working on a National Student Bill of rights…some of those rights include free college, free public transportation, clean bathrooms, no more standardized tests. So we are in the process of really getting students to have these dialogues in their classrooms, outside the classroom, all over the place…”
As readers now have a nutshell understanding of the Algebra Project, let’s drill down a bit and further the education.
Robert Moses bio from the Algebra Project’s Board of Director’s page:
Dr. Robert P. Moses
President and Founder
In his young adult life, Dr. Moses was a pivotal organizer for the civil rights movement as field secretary for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and was director of SNCC’s Mississippi Project. He was a driving force behind the Mississippi Summer Project of 1964 in organizing the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP), which challenged the Mississippi regulars at the 1964 Democratic Convention. From 1969-1976, he worked for the Ministry of Education in Tanzania, East Africa, where he was chairperson of the math department at the Samé school. Dr. Moses returned to the USA in 1976 to continue to pursue doctoral studies in Philosophy at Harvard. A MacArthur Foundation Fellow from 1982-87, Dr. Moses used his fellowship to develop the concept for the Algebra Project, wherein mathematics literacy in today’s information age is as important to educational access and citizenship for inner city and rural poor middle and high school students as the right to vote was to political access and citizenship for sharecroppers and day laborers in Mississippi in the 1960s. As founder and president of the Algebra Project Inc., Dr. Moses also serves as director of the project’s materials development program. See more at www.algebra.org. Together with Algebra Project Inc. board member Danny Glover, Moses and others recently launched a national discussion calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution for Quality Public School Education as a Civil Right; see more at www.qecr.org. Dr. Moses has received several college and university honorary degrees and honors, including the Heinz Award for the Human Condition and the Nation/Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship.
More information about Ella Baker’s mentoring of Robert Moses, SNCC, MFDP, and her influence on Students for a Democratic Society:
Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (1960-1966)
That same year, on the heels of regional desegregation sit-ins led by black college students, Baker persuaded the SCLC to invite southern university students to the Southwide Youth Leadership Conference at Shaw University on Easter weekend. At this meeting the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) was formed.
The SNCC became the most active organization in the Delta, and it was relatively open to women. Following the conference Baker resigned from the SCLC and began a long and intimate relationship with SNCC (pronounced “snick”). Along with Howard Zinn, Baker was one of SNCC’s highly revered adult advisors, called the “Godmother of SNCC.”
In 1961 Ella Baker persuaded the SNCC to form two wings: One wing for direct action and the Second wing for voter registration. It was with Baker’s help that SNCC (along with Congress of Racial Equality) coordinated the region-wide freedom rides of 1961 and began to work closely with black sharecroppers and others throughout the South. Ella Baker insisted that “strong people don’t need strong leaders,” and criticized the notion that a single charismatic leader at the helm of movements for social change.
Ella Baker pushed the idea of “Participatory Democracy”, therefore, she wanted each person to get involved individually. She also argued that “people under the heel,” referring to the most oppressed sectors of any community, “had to be the ones to decide what action they were going to take to get (out) from under their oppression.” She was a teacher and mentor to the young people of SNCC, highly influencing the thinking of such important figures as Julian Bond, Diane Nash, Stokely Carmichael, Curtis Muhammad, Bob Moses, and Bernice Johnson Reagon, who wrote a song in Baker’s honor, called “Ella’s Song.” Through SNCC, Baker’s ideas of group-centered leadership and the need for radical democratic social change spread throughout the student movements of the 1960s. Her ideas influenced the philosophy of participatory democracy put forth by Students for a Democratic Society, the major antiwar group of the day. These ideas also influenced a wide range of radical and progressive groups that would form in the 60s and 70s.
In 1964 she helped organize the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) as an alternative to the all-white Mississippi Democratic Party. She worked as the coordinator of the Washington office of the MFDP and accompanied a delegation of the MFDP to the National Democratic Party convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1964. The group’s aim was to challenge the national party to affirm the rights of African Americans to participate in party elections in the South. When MFDP delegates challenged the pro-segregationist, all-white official delegation, a major conflict ensued. The MFDP delegation was not seated, but their influence on the Democratic Party helped to elect many black leaders in Mississippi and forced a rule change to allow women and minorities to sit as delegates at the Democratic National Convention.
Many of my readers have heard the name Ella Baker because of Van Jones, the co-founder of the Ella Baker Center in Oakland, California who wrote STORM: Reclaiming Revolution and is beating the ‘social justice and green jobs’ drums, but let’s get back to Robert Moses, The Algebra Project and an offshoot of TAP, Young People’s Project. As of 2007, TAP was being supported by The Tides Foundation and the Ford Foundation, among others. Also, Robert Moses is the recipient of the 1999 Heinz Award in Human Condition netting him $250,000. Does the ‘Heinz’ name sound familiar? It probably does because John Kerry’s wife is the heir to the Heinz family fortune and the founder of the Heinz Award, and benefactor to many left-wing organizations including Tides.
Teresa Heinz Kerry is Board Chairwoman of the Heinz Family Foundation, Board Chairwoman of the Howard Heinz Endowment, and a Board member of the Vira I. Heinz Endowment. Collectively these are known as the Heinz Family Philanthropies, grant-making institutions that fund primarily leftwing causes. Teresa is the widow of Senator H. John Heinz III, and the current wife of Democratic Senator John Kerry.
Through her various foundations, Mrs. Heinz Kerry has given millions of dollars to a host of far-left groups, with a special focus on environmentalist causes. Key recipients of her funding include the Tides Foundation; the Tides Center; the Environmental Defense Fund; Earth Action Network; Global Exchange; the Natural Resources Defense Council; the Environmental Media Association; the Brookings Institution; the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund; the Earth Island Institute; Oxfam America; Physicians for Social Responsibility; the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund; the Nature Conservancy; the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund; the Feminist Majority Foundation; the Union of Concerned Scientists; the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition; the Sierra Club; the Waterkeeper Alliance; ACORN; the National Urban League; and the Izaak Walton League of America.
Moving along we come to the 1996 offshoot of The Algebra Project, the Young People’s Project:
The Young People’s Project (YPP) is an outgrowth of the Algebra Project, “a national mathematics literacy effort aimed at helping low income students and students of color successfully acquire mathematical skills that are a prerequisite for a college preparatory mathematics sequence in high school and full citizenship in today’s technological society.” YPP joins the Algebra Project in its belief that all the children who live in the country are children of the country and that they have the right to a high quality public school education.
A brief cruise around YPP’s Board Members’ page brings forth this interesting tidbit of information:
Jessy Molina graduated from Harvard College in 1999 and from Yale Law School in 2002. Upon graduation from law school, Jessy accepted a Soros Justice Fellowship to work at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights on the Books Not Bars project, with the goal of shifting state funding priorities away from incarceration and toward education and youth opportunities. After completing her fellowship, Jessy worked for the John Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University. As Program Director for the Gardner Center’s West Oakland youth initiative, she worked with high school students at McClymonds High School in Oakland to develop and implement a youth-led social justice curriculum. Jessy currently serves as National Co-Coordinator of Quality Education as a Constitutional Right (www.qecr.org), along with her husband, Michael Molina. Jessy enjoys learning from and with the young people she works with, especially her daughter, Maya.

A never ending rat-maze of progressives that definitely understand how to brainwash an entire country over the course of generations through the indoctrination of our children. When enough generations of children are taught to be good little worker bees as part of the collective hive, America’s great experiment will have ended without so much as a whimper.
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

(H/T Read Between The Lies)
Glenn starts this program with the footage of Jay Rockefeller spouting his treasonous BS about shutting down news outlets because they keep the government from getting their work done. Glenn also plays the video of Jay’s dad; David Rockefeller (famous globalist and eugenicist) speaking about controlling the world’s growing population. The very same family whose patriarch is responsible for the University of Chicago.
Today’s show also have a studio audience covering the subject of preparing for hard times.
Glenn starts out this program by pointing out that the media is covering the British royals’ engagement instead of the biggest story of the month; TSA’s sexual groping procedures. He also covers George Soros’ and Michael Chertoff’s financial involvement in the nude body scanners. Glenn recaps the ‘top-down, bottom-up and inside-out’ marxist plan to allow the government to crack down on average Americans, and then interviews Isaac Yeffet, former security chief of the El Al Airlines on Israel’s track record for security.
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.
CEO and President, CREDO/Working Assets
Michael Kieschnick is CEO, president and co-founder of CREDO/Working Assets, a company dedicated to changing the world through progressive philanthropy and political activism. Since its founding, Working Assets has donated over $65 million to progressive organizations. Its members have contacted selected decision-makers by phone, e-mail and letters over 32 million times. During the last seven years, the company has helped over four million Americans register to vote. Michael teaches a course on social innovation at Stanford University, and previously taught a graduate seminar on financial innovation at the University of California, Berkeley. Michael has a Ph.D. in public policy from Harvard University, and earned bachelor’s degrees in biology and economics at Stanford University. He currently serves as a board member for several nonprofits — the League of Conservation Voters, the OneCalifornia Bank Foundation and the Beatitudes Society. 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.” 
Listen up MOOS! You are a revenue stream one way or another. If they cannot get your money using the Federal Reserve, QE and inflation, and the IRS right out in the open, they get it using District of Criminals’ appropriation bills.
The Washington Examiner nailed the story of the where the $338 Million behind the TSA full body scanners went, with names readers are going to recognize. Among many DC lobbyist leeches, the names of Michael Chertoff, George Soros, and Chad Wolff who happens to be a former aide to Kay Bailey Hutchinson (Ranking Member of the Senate committee that has called for a TSA oversight hearing on the 17th) appear. (Yeah! The hearing on Wednesday is really going to accomplish something, doncha feel it? Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooo……………)
If you’ve seen one of these scanners at an airport, there’s a good chance it was made by L-3 Communications, a major contractor with the Department of Homeland Security. L-3 employs three different lobbying firms including Park Strategies, where former Sen. Al D’Amato, R-N.Y., plumps on the company’s behalf. Back in 1989, President George H.W. Bush appointed D’Amato to the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism following the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. Also on Park’s L-3 account is former Appropriations staffer Kraig Siracuse.
The scanner contract, issued four days after the Christmas Day bomb attempt last year, is worth $165 million to L-3.
Rapiscan got the other naked-scanner contract from the TSA, worth $173 million. Rapiscan’s lobbyists include Susan Carr, a former senior legislative aide to Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee. When Defense Daily reported on Price’s appropriations bill last winter, the publication noted “Price likes the budget for its emphasis on filling gaps in aviation security, in particular the whole body imaging systems.”
An early TSA contractor for full-body scanners was the American Science and Engineering company. AS&E’s lobbying team is impressive, including Tom Blank, a former deputy administrator for the TSA. Fellow AS&E lobbyist Chad Wolf was an assistant administrator at TSA and an aide to Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who sits on the Transportation and Defense subcommittees of Appropriations. Finally, Democratic former Rep. Bud Cramer is also an AS&E lobbyist — he sat on the Defense and Transportation subcommittees of the Appropriations Committee.
The companies that make the airport nudie-scanners have high-priced lobbying teams that include former congressmen, top Capitol Hill staff, and former TSA brass, as I reported in my column yesterday.
But because I focussed on registered lobbyists, I left out the highest-profile revolving-door character in the pay of the nudie-scanner industry: George W. Bush’s Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. After the undie-bomber attempt on Christmas 2009, Chertoff went on a media tour promoting the use of these scanners, without disclosing that he was getting paid by Rapiscan, one of the two companies currently contracted by TSA to take a nude picture of you at the airport.
Then this morning Carney also noted that former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff was flacking for Rapiscan.
As for the company’s other political connections, it also appears that none other than George Soros, the billionaire funder of the country’s liberal political infrastructure, owns 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. Not surprisingly, OSI’s stock has appreciated considerably over the course of the year. Soros certainly is a savvy investor.
There aren’t any criminals, double-dealing, or insider trading happening inside the District of Criminals. Move along now, nothing to see here.
World Net Daily is reporting that a Soros funded group, Institute for Policy Studies believes that ‘Progressives Won!’ and because they only lost three members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, they feel justified in writing as many executive orders as possible and ‘pushing’ Obama to do the right thing and sign them now that the blue-dogs have been eliminated. How’s that for some interesting circular thinking America? You must want progressive mandates because you didn’t vote Nancy and her anti-Constitutional cohorts out. Psychotropic drugs anyone?
Dead weight gone. Good Riddance. The blame for the stalemate to come can now fall squarely where it belongs…on the anti-progressive, anti-democratic, anti-populist Republican members of Congress.
Our work is now finally beginning. The veil of a happy Democratic governing majority is finally lifted. We didn’t have it then; We don’t have it now. But what we do have now is a more solidly progressive bunch of Dems in Congress and a president presumably less encumbered by the false illusion that playing nice will get him a date with the other team.
Let’s throw our support unabashedly behind the Congressional Progressive Caucus and let’s push Obama to finally do the right thing through as many Executive Orders as we can present to him.
(Editor’s Note: Please remember that progressives like Soros and the groups he funds are only one agenda at the table. They aren’t the only ones playing the game of ‘Divide, Conquer, and Pillage America’. My money is still on the international central bankers who, in my opinion, are using the left and the far right to do their dirty work.)
Organization cites mid-terms, claims progressives registered victory
NEW YORK – It was progressives who won the mid-term elections, particularly incumbents in a socialist-founded congressional caucus that emerged from last week’s ballots virtually unscathed, boasted an article published by the George Soros-funded Institute for Policy Studies, a Marxist-oriented think-tank in Washington, D.C.
The article recommends that President Obama govern from executive order to push through a progressive agenda.
“Progressives won in the 2010 mid-term elections,” wrote Karen Dolan, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, or IPS, and director of the Cities for Progress and Cities for Peace projects based at the radical organization.
“The Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus in the House Democratic Caucus at over 80 members, emerged virtually unscathed, losing only three members,” she wrote, in the piece published on the IPS website.
“By contrast, the conservative Blue Dog Democratic caucus was more than sliced in half from 54 members to only 26. Further, of the 34 conservative Dems who voted against Obama’s Healthcare Reform, a mere 12 won re-election,” she wrote.
Dolan declared that “our work is now finally beginning.”
“The veil of a happy Democratic governing majority is finally lifted. We didn’t have it then; We don’t have it now. But what we do have now is a more solidly progressive bunch of Dems in Congress and a president presumably less encumbered by the false illusion that playing nice will get him a date with the other team.”
She went on to recommend that progressives “throw our support unabashedly behind the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and let’s push Obama to finally do the right thing through as many Executive Orders as we can present to him.”
WND reported the Congressional Progressive Caucus was founded by the Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA.
- America’s oldest leftwing think tank
- Has long supported Communist and anti-American causes around the world
The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was founded in 1963 as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization with seed money (derived from a fortune made in cosmetics sales under the Faberge trade name) from the Samuel Rubin Foundation. Samuel Rubin (1901-1978) was a Russian Bolshevik and the father of Cora Weiss, who headed the Samuel Rubin Foundation from its inception and is currently the principal financier of IPS. Weiss’ husband, Peter, is Chairman of the IPS Board of Trustees. He is also a member of the National Lawyers Guild and the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, both of which were created as Communist Party fronts. The Weisses selected Richard J. Barnet and Marcus Raskin to be the first co-directors of IPS, with the aim of transforming the United States by altering public attitudes, changing laws, and reversing foreign policy through an Academy that reached every nexus of the national nervous system.
