Glenn’s program today covers all of the radicals that surround the pResident. Check out the related links at the bottom of this post for more information.
Glenn starts this program with how we have approached the economic ‘insanity stop’ on the alert system as people like George Soros are moving their money into gold. He then goes on to explain a story about a tenured professor and a researcher from the University of California (San Diego) who want to ‘dissolve America’, and are using taxpayer dollars to achieve their goal. Please be warned; duct tape needed.
Glenn has a completely different perspective on Barack’s speech about the oil leak, and with the information that follows of how the liberal media hit a hysterical moment after the speech, Glenn is probably right. He explains that the language used was based on Woodrow Wilson and FDR (both progressive democrats), and that the language itself is ‘war language’. He also shows the discrepancy between this speech being given from the Oval Office (traditionally used for announcements of war, disaster, and major economic news) and the speech about the stimulus where America ‘may not recover’ if it wasn’t passed.
So the complete and total collapse of America doesn’t warrant a speech from the oval office, but an oil spill that the president has waited months to address, and golfed 6 times, went to a Paul McCartney concert in the meantime, suddenly does warrant the oval office and him declaring war.
Glenn also figures out that George Bush really is a ‘right’ progressive with the passage of the Patriot Act which did nothing to secure the borders, but only makes one slight mistake, IMHO; he believes that progressives on the left want to have a global government with the UN in charge, and that the progressives on the right want to rule the world with the US as the leader. The progressives on the right want to rule the world with Britain/America in charge.
When the entire show becomes available, I will post the rest and put in necessary comments as Glenn does make the connection between George Soros, Petrobras, Center for American Progress and Obama’s agenda in the gulf.
Is it any wonder that average Americans are a bit confused by the mixed signals we are receiving from TPTB via their media lackeys? Hedgefund managers are buying up gold at a rate that rivals world central banks, yet we are ‘in recovery’? Add to this the fact that nobody seems to know what is happening in markets that are behaving erratically. Could it be that there is more than two competing interests trying to manipulate the decline?
May 24 (Bloomberg) — Speculators are buying gold faster than the world’s biggest producers can mine it as analysts forecast a 27 percent rally that may extend the longest run of annual gains since at least 1920.
Exchange-traded products backed by bullion added 41.7 metric tons in the week to May 14, the most in 14 months, data from UBS AG show. China, Australia and the 15 other largest mining nations averaged weekly output of 41.6 tons last year, researcher GFMS Ltd. estimates. Even though prices have fallen 5.1 percent to $1,185.30 from a record $1,249.40 an ounce May 14, the median in a Bloomberg survey of 23 traders, analysts and investors shows it will reach $1,500 by the end of the year.
Buying accelerated as the MSCI World Index of 23 developed nations’ stocks tumbled as much as 16 percent since mid-April and the euro weakened to a four-year low against the dollar. Holders of ETPs, including George Soros and John Paulson, accumulated a record 1,938 tons by May 21, eclipsing all but four of the biggest central-bank holdings. (emphasis mine)
“People are afraid of the debasement of all the currencies,” said Peter Schiff, president and chief global strategist for Darien, Connecticut-based Euro Pacific Capital, whose clients have more than $2 billion in assets. “What’s surprising is that gold is still as low as it is,” he said, predicting $5,000 to $10,000 an ounce in the next five to 10 years.
Since the last week of April, ETPs have been adding bullion at a pace not seen since the first quarter of 2009, in the wake of the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. Buying rose as European policymakers agreed on an almost $1 trillion emergency loan package to prevent sovereign defaults.
Muenze Oesterreich AG, the Vienna-based mint that makes the Philharmonic, the best-selling gold coin in Europe and Japan, on May 12 said it had sold 243,500 ounces since April 26, more than the 205,300 ounces sold in the entire first quarter.
Central banks and governments are also buying gold, adding 425.4 tons last year, for a combined 30,116.9 tons, the most since 1964 and the first expansion since 1988, data from the World Gold Council show. Official reserves of central banks and governments may expand by another 192 to 289 tons this year, according to CPM Group, a research and asset-management company in New York.
Billionaire John Paulson’s New York-based Paulson & Co. hedge fund is the SPDR gold trust’s biggest investor, with 31.5 million shares, or about 96 tons, a May 17 regulatory filing showed. Kyle Bass, the head of Dallas-based Hayman Advisors LP who made $500 million in 2007 on the U.S. subprime collapse, bought gold this month, according to a letter to clients.
Buying at the start of a bubble is “rational,” Soros said in January. His New York-based Soros Fund Management LLC was the sixth-biggest investor in the SPDR fund in the first quarter, a May 17 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows. He trimmed his holding by 9.6 percent from the previous quarter.
It really doesn’t matter whether George is or not; one of the organizations he supports has donated to The Coffee Party. Is this an astroturf campaign more than a year after millions of regular Americans got up off their couches and pushed their kitchen chairs back? More than likely. Will it matter in the long run? Definitely not because there are still more people in this country that remember the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and what they stand for than there are people that are busy rewriting history to achieve the “collective greater good”. To borrow a phrase from the Red Lemur, “Communism Kills, Capitalism Builds”.
I watched the above video and of course, did some investigating. (The Video has been removed from YouTube).
I have included a few questions from the Coffee Party USA’s own website. There are more if you want to do a fly-by, but these were the relevant ones.
Fri, 2010-03-12 14:20 — Coffee Party USA
Q: Is Coffee Party USA affiliated with billionaire George Soros, the founder Soros Fund Management and Open Society Institute?
No. Democracy in Action is a vendor that licenses Internet technology for websites, including ours. Democracy in Action has received funding from Mr. Soros, but Coffee Party USA has not received any money from either the Open Society Institute or from Mr. Soros.
Q: What is Coffee Party USA’s affiliation with Democracy in Action and Wired for Change?
Democracy in Action and Wired for Change are vendors that offer Internet (CRM) services. When our Facebook fan page began to grow very rapidly, we realized that we needed a website. Democracy in Action, Salsa, Wired for Change, and Spherit technologies were all donated to us by their respective vendors. As a grassroots movement with no initial operating budget, we have relied on services, volunteer hours, tools, and expertise donated by a variety of individuals and organizations.
So who is Democracy In Action? If you want to double check this quote, you will have to Scroogle their site because I definitely am not linking to them.
Through DemocracyInAction, nonprofits have access to a special Salsa configuration built specifically for the progressive nonprofit community.
DemocracyInAction, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization itself, believes technology can be a decisive force for social change. We exist to empower those who share our values of ecological and social justice to advance the progressive agenda.
Well isn’t that lovely?
Ever wonder why you don’t see Google ads or super conservative ads on this site?
Remember the progressive mantra; “the ends justify the means”.
The Times noted that a dinner was held in New York last month where “representatives of some of these hedge funds discussed betting against the euro” in the wake of the Greek financial crisis.
The New York Times is quoting a spokesman for George Soros as saying that the well-known hedge fund operator is guilty of no wrong-doing in connection with the financial upheaval currently affecting Greece and Europe as a whole. But Zubi Diamond, author of the powerful new book, Wizards of Wall Street, says the agenda of Soros and other short sellers is clear. Their purpose, he says, is “to loot America and any foreign country which invested in America. Greece was one of them. Iceland was ravaged and annihilated.”
The term “short selling” in this context refers to investors, speculators and currency manipulators who bet on the decline or collapse of a stock or currency through complex financial instruments handled mostly through secret off-shore accounts. For the hedge fund short sellers to make money, prices have to go down.
Short sellers, who are appearing at a March 11 event at the libertarian Cato Institute, insist that they “provide liquidity and transparency to our capital markets” and that their operations “expose corporate fraud and mismanagement.”
But Diamond strongly disagrees. He says the Managed Funds Association, the lobbying arm of the hedge fund short sellers, is crafty and deceitful. “When they tell you that short selling contributes liquidity to the market, that is a lie,” he says. “Short selling destroys capital and takes away liquidity from the market. When they tell you that they are taking steps to remove manipulation from the stock market, that is a lie. They are taking steps to introduce manipulation to the stock market, and prime the stock market for manipulation and looting. When they tell you that the uptick rule is outdated, because of decimalization, that is a lie. They lie to deceive, to bring forth a big payday from short selling, hence the looting of America and America’s wealthiest corporations and their shareholders, sanctioned by their Washington D.C. lapdogs.”
“The most influential members of Managed Funds Association, the hedge fund short sellers, have an anti-capitalism agenda, an anti-industrialized nation agenda, and a far left liberal, Marxist radical agenda,” Diamond says.” Hedge Fund short sellers are not capitalist. They are anti-capitalist and they are not investors; they are anti-investors.” He says they “loot” companies and countries.
The Times noted that a dinner was held in New York last month where “representatives of some of these hedge funds discussed betting against the euro” in the wake of the Greek financial crisis. As a result, the paper said, at least four hedge funds had been asked by the Justice Department to turn over trading records and other documents. They were Greenlight Capital, SAC Capitol Advisors, Paulson & Company and Soros Fund Management.
Claiming that Soros is not involved in any wrong-doing, Michael Vachon, a spokesman for Soros Fund Management, told the Times that “It has become commonplace to direct attention toward George Soros whenever currency markets are in the news.”
Diamond, an African immigrant who came to America and became a successful businessman, concludes otherwise, saying that Soros and other short sellers who belong to the Managed Funds Association, the “voice of the global alternative investment community,” are corrupting influences that undermine nations, their economies and currencies, and the global financial system as a whole.
Diamond, with 14 years of experience in the financial markets, calls his book a course in “Economic crisis 101” because of the need to inform ordinary Americans of what is happening right before their eyes. The book is easy to read, although it deals with complex financial regulations and operations, and is only 118 pages. The theme is that the economic crisis was deliberately engineered for profit and political gain and has already resulted in the “looting” of $11 trillion from the U.S. economy.
AIM had warned about this potential problem in a January 16, 2008, column, “Soros Bets on U.S. Economic Collapse,” in which we noted hedge fund ties to the Democratic Party and a report that hedge fund managers, including Soros, stood to make billions of dollars from a U.S. housing market collapse.

This coming from the private banking cartel known as THE FED, with comments by George Soros?
“We are in a form of a depression.” – Economist David Rosenberg is putting it mildly so as not to panic the cattle. Gold is at $1,195.00.
I’m so freakin’ done with being lied to, and I hope y’all started buying gold, silver, precious gems, food, etc., a year ago when I suggested it.
The Federal Reserve says it could be five to six years before we return to normal growth.
That’s according to Fed officials in the central bank’s latest economic forecast.
They expect unemployment, now 10.2 percent, to remain in a range of 6.8 to 7.5 percent through 2012.
“Business contacts reported that they would be cautious in their hiring and would continue to aggressively seek cost savings,” Fed officials said in minutes from their most recent policy meeting.
Businesses would be able to meet any increases in demand in the near term by raising their employees’ hours and boosting productivity, thus delaying the need to add to their payrolls,” the officials said.
“It is a slow-motion recovery,” Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group, told The Washington Post.
“It sure doesn’t look like the beginning of a normal, rapid recovery.”
Economist David Rosenberg is even more pessimistic.
We’re in a form of depression,” Rosenberg, chief economist and strategist at Gluskin Sheff Associates, Inc., a Toronto wealth management firm, told CNBC.
“Depressions . . . typically happen after a prolonged period of credit excess morphs into a collapse, and you get asset deflation. We had asset deflation, and we had a contraction in private-sector credit.”
Billionaire George Soros believes a “bloodletting” may be in the offing for leveraged buyout firms (LBOs) and commercial real estate investors amid the worst economy in seven decades.
“In commercial real estate and leveraged buyouts, the bloodletting is yet to come,” Soros said in a speech in Europe, reported by Bloomberg News.
“These factors will continue to weigh on the American economy, and the American consumer will no longer be able to serve as the motor for the world economy.”

Monster readers may not be surprised to know that I sign up for lots of lists to receive lots of emails containing all sorts of information. This morning I received an email titled ‘Cavier Dreams’ from Jon Vogel, DCCC Executive Director announcing the launch of a new store to raise money because they are at a financial disadvantage with the GOP (implied). Whining liberal victims…
The truth is that most of the time it’s easy for Republicans to raise money – they just go to one of their “Fat Cat” special interest friends and ask. And, poof, sure enough Republicans are granted a check so large it will most certainly guarantee a carefree year full of champagne wishes and caviar dreams.
Jon needs to pick up the phone and call George Soros.
Right now is a critical time for Democrats to show our strength and let the big GOP special interests know that we’re ready to stand up to their dishonest attacks. But when you’re working to improve the lives of all Americans-not just the big money special interests – it isn’t as easy, especially in tough economic times. In just a few short days, Democrats are facing their first FEC filing deadline following the historic health insurance reform vote and we’re already under attack by GOP special interests in an earlier than ever ad assault.
Jon, would you consider ACORN and SEIU to not be big money special interests? Also, you might want to print the whole truth; Democrats are under attack by a majority of average, every-day AMERICANS that are spitting blood because they are so pissed the Dems continue to go against their wishes without even so much as a ‘by your leave’.
That’s why we launched MyDemocraticStore.com. The proceeds benefit House Democrats running for office, so you can help strengthen our Democratic Majority AND get a nice package to put under the tree or the menorah at the same time.
Jon, you better start fund-raising for your traitorous dems who are going to be in the fight of their lives for re-election if they even have the stomach to run after what is surely going to occur when Dems ram this, currently $1.8 Trillion, health care bill through.

Martin Jacques thinks that Obama possesses a rare quality for a president, humility, (STOP FREAKIN’ LAUGHING!), and that we are fortunate to have him at the helm during America’s decline in the world. (I believe there is a very special place in hell for quitters.)
This is the 800 pound gorilla of disconnect between Washington/New York and the rest of the taxpaying country strolling through the room flipping everybody off.
I am wondering how well this type of thought is going to play out in fly-over country with people who DID NOT create the crisis, but are willing to roll up their sleeves and clean it up to save their childrens’ future.
The president’s visit to China was seen as failure, but what if that was just the new standard? Martin Jacques on why the U.S. must get used to decline—and learn humility.
Obama’s visit to China last week was starkly different from previous such occasions. The United States has stumbled into a new era. Just a decade ago it all looked so different. President Bush—in one of history’s great miscalculations—believed that the world stood on the verge of a new American century. In fact, the opposite was the case. The defeat of the Soviet Union flattered only to deceive and mislead. In a world increasingly defined by the rise of the developing countries, most notably China, the United States was, in fact, in relative decline. It took the global financial crisis to begin to convince the U.S. that it could no longer take its global supremacy for granted. This dawning realisation has come desperately late in the day. Even now most of the country remains in denial. Never has a great power been less prepared or equipped to face its own decline.
Fortunately, in Barack Obama the nation has a president that possesses a rare characteristic for that office, humility. He has made it clear from the outset that the U.S. cannot run the world on its own but only in co-operation with others. In Beijing he welcomed China’s rise as a positive and sought a relationship of partnership with it. But as with the U.S. financial crisis, Obama is making it up as he goes along. Like the rest of the ruling elite, he finds himself ambushed by American decline, a situation that his administration was entirely unprepared for.
Is anybody here going to be surprised that Martin was the editor of the Communist Party of Great Britain’s journal Marxism Today?
Martin Jacques (born October 1945) is a British former magazine editor and academic.
He was editor of the CPGB‘s journal, Marxism Today from 1977 until its closure in 1991, a publication which was politically quite mainstream in its final years, with regular contributions from figures generally identified with the Atlanticist left such as David Marquand. In this period, Jacques was the co-editor or co-author of The Forward March of Labour Halted? (1981), The Politics of Thatcherism (1983) and New Times (1989).
Jacques was a co-founder of the think-tank Demos. He has been a columnist for The Times and The Sunday Times and was deputy editor of The Independent. Currently he is a visiting fellow at the London School of Economics Asia Research Centre. During the last year he has been a visiting professor at the International Centre for Chinese Studies at Aichi University in Japan, a visiting professor at Renmin University in Beijing and a senior visiting fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. In 2009, Jacques’ book about Asian modernity and the rise of China entitled When China Rules the World: The Rise of the Middle Kingdom and the End of the Western World was published. He is a columnist for The Guardian and New Statesman.
Demos is a non-partisan public policy research and advocacy organization founded in 2000. Headquartered in New York City, Demos works with advocates and policymakers around the country in pursuit of four overarching goals:
- a more equitable economy with widely shared prosperity and opportunity;
- a vibrant and inclusive democracy with high levels of voting and civic engagement;
- an empowered public sector that works for the common good;
- and responsible U.S. engagement in an interdependent world.
A multi-issue national organization, Demos combines research, policy development, and advocacy to influence public debates and catalyze change. We publish books, reports, and briefing papers that illuminate critical problems and advance innovative solutions; work at both the national and state level with advocates and policymakers to promote reforms; help to build the capacity and skills of key progressive constituencies; project our values into the media by promoting Demos Fellows and staff in print, broadcast, and Internet venues; and host public events that showcase new ideas and leading progressive voices.
Do a flyby and check out the rest of Demos’ site.
I will give you one guess who has funded Demos; George Soros’ Open Society Institute.

DEMOS, headquartered in New York City, calls itself “a network for ideas and action.”
DEMOS director of research David Callahan believes America’s problems stem from “the values of extreme laissez faire ideology that have deeply permeated our society. We’ve had 20 years of deregulation. We’ve been told that government is the problem, not the solution.” DEMOS’ remedies require undoing Ronald Reagan’s economic policy legacy. Callahan is the author of a new book, Kindred Spirits: Harvard Business School’s Extraordinary Class of 1949 and How They Transformed American Business.
Grant: “$75,000 over one year to support network/ policy advocacy group working to revitalize America’s democratic life and to create a more broadly shared economic prosperity.”
That sounds so much like the social justice engineering that we are hearing from the czars in the White House. Add another name to the list of marxists that George Soros has hired to spread “America in Decline” propaganda and try to remake the world as we know it.
