Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes and his Investigation of George “Spooky Dude” Soros – Scary!

This article is written by Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes. It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (in particular the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi recently to the minority leader position in Congress):

This is almost too scary to contemplate.

If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President or why the media is “selective” in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama’s every move. Think this is absurd? Invest a few minutes and read this. You won’t regret it.

Who is Obama? Obama is a puppet and here is the explanation of the man or demon who pulls his strings. It’s not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world. I don’t think he knows how to tie his shoe laces. After reading this and Obama’s reluctance to accept help on the oil spill you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US? “In history, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet someone planned it.” [ Franklin Delano Roosevelt ]

Who Is George Soros? He brought the market down in 2 days. Here is what Steve Kroft’s (CBS) research has turned up. It’s a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together. “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States .” [George Soros]
George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American and anti-good. What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist world-class philosopher, despises the American way, and loves to do social engineering and change cultures.
György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary . Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.” Be that as it may, after WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994. Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and fallibilism.

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.) The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society,” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City where he worked on Wall Street and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation. Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and he quickly made his fortune. By the 1980’s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for The American Thinker she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England. He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”

In 1994 Soros crowed in The New Republic, that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history. “The “Soros Empire” indeed. In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia . At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”
The website Greek National Pride reports, “[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma ]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that the Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary ‘s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach. But what about America? Soros told Australia’s national newspaper The Australian, ” America , as the centre of the globalized financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.”

Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).

Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U. S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U S could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independence.”

A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com. Their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”

Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago, news sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous.” In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately, deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”

Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book The Shadow Party outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which recently became the Obama Administration.
DiscoverThe Networks.org (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia , Croatia , Georgia , and Yugoslavia . When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”

The November 2008 edition of the German magazine Der Spiegel, in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U. S.) should do after taking office. “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion dollars would be about right. Soros also said that, “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U. S. needs a cap-and-trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”
Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by The Baltimore Chronicle’s Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr.
In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time. In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 ( that’s five billion ) to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky-trained Radical Rules, Anti-American Socialists. George has been contributing a billion dollars plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g., he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations to which he funnels millions. In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’s NEMESIS. As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance (which wrote the Stimulus bill), Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.

Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”
Without Soros’ money, would Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barack Obama is leading the way.

The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Radical Disconnect – Minority Rule…..or ….Who Goosed the Moose!

I was sitting on an airplane all day today contemplating the source of all of the wrong thinking, and general lunacy floating around the universe today. Just when I had almost convinced myself that 1/2 of the world wasn’t nuttier than squirrel dung I clicked over to the beeryblog and read this very wonderfully written and nearly 100% fictionalized alternate reality some people live in.I encourage you to give it a quick read and report back here and tell me what you think then fair enough?

Radical Disconnect – Minority Rule
Posted on November 11, 2011 by beeryblog 7
by Diogenes ~
There is a fundamental divide in our politics that the current, brutal recession has exposed. It is not just a problem for liberals – it is a fundamental problem for the country. The majority voice has been silenced.
The decline of the middle-class and muting of its voice was largely concealed in the era of easy credit. We felt ok financially and because we felt ok we kept quiet. Quiet while corpo-criminals weakened democracy’s safeguards – from union participation to financial regulation. Not satisfied that we kept silent while they dismantled democracy, the wealth-class now rejects the credit it offered to secure our acquiescence. They want even that.
The economy is a wreck, we are all in pain and everyone wants to know what the hell happened. There’s no more pretending that everything is ok because we can run out and buy new Hummer, eat at a fancy restaurant or flip a house. In the halcyon days we felt first-class, but the real elite were quietly running the show. Now, they are unmasked as the One Percent.
The Republican Party has long been a minority party – the party of the One Percent – despite trumpeting itself as the “Silent Majority” and the “New Majority.” Nikita Kruschev, as I recall, once thought that the Democratic Party was the natural ruling party of America. He also said that the Democrats and the Republicans were a “pair of boots.” That may have been true at the time, but no longer. If one party is a boot, the other is a ball and chain, weighing down the entire body politic.
To put this in perspective, we need only look at disturbing trends – not only in the Republican philosophy of government – but in their political tactics. Deception, corruption and manipulation. It all famously coalesced with Richard Nixon and the Watergate break in. The ultimate dirty trick.

Since then, the Republican playbook has clearly been based on divide-and-conquer tactics. Fear-mongering, distrust and enmity toward the “other” is the order of the day. Damn the liberals, Democrats, immigrants, people of color, politically active women, NOW, ACORN, the Tri-lateral Commission, gun control advocates and on and on. All demonized and held up to scorn by a legion of talking heads from Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage to Sean Hannity.
Resenting the perceived “liberal bias” of the old, Big 3 broadcasting networks, conservatives even created their own cable channel and turned it into a propaganda organ – one that only mistakenly features actual news. Dictionary.com defines propaganda thus:
prop·a·gan·da
[prop-uh-gan-duh]
noun
1. information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to
help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation,etc.
2. the deliberate spreading of such information, rumors, etc.
3. the particular doctrines or principles propagated by an organization or movement.
The combination of Fox News and conservative talk radio has created a Republican echo chamber in which “facts” are transmitted only after they have been filtered and embellished by a host of talking heads. Almost always, these facts are lies, distortions or gross exaggerations. But then, propaganda does not require truth. It requires impact.
Propaganda, often originating at the Republican National Committee, is distributed in the form of talking points which become the text of right-wing radio and television shows and even opening statements at Republican debates.
The overseers of the Republican Party – the ultra rich and various whole industries from Wall Street and international oil to health care and pharmaceutical interests – pay vast sums of money to control information and manipulate the electorate. Wealth-class propaganda, when not being spouted directly but puppets, is disseminated in the form of campaign ads – particularly attack ads. An art form perfected by Lee Atwater and his nefarious acolyte, Karl Rove. Indeed, these ads reached their highest pitch in the shameful “Swift-boating campaign” against Senator Kerry.
How does the One Percent control the Republican Party – money and lots of it. Corrupting politicians by means of campaign contributions and promises of future riches is not confined to Republicans of course, but it is part of the conservative fabric. That fabric is stronger than ever in the age of the SuperPac – grand old political slush funds activated by anonymous donors. Thanks to the Citizens United case, decided by radical conservatives, we suffer under the destructive assertions that corporations are people and money is speech.
This year, the propaganda and money playbook is augmented by naked attempts to tilt the playing field by voter suppression measures aimed at likely Democratic voters. Whether these measures will survive constitutional challenge remains to be seen, but many state governments where Republicans run the show are giving it the old college try.
To this we add their stubborn obstruction in Congress where they have a majority. They are now truly the Party of No.
Republican tactics and innovations do nothing less than undermine and subvert our democracy. Their agenda is clear: Preserve, protect and advance the interests of the financial elite and large corporations. They champion minority interests and in a real democracy they would lose more than they’d win. They advocate minority rule – plutocracy.

Dear Italy, Be careful because when you are on fire ….gasoline looks like water!

Credit Suisse

It is another exciting day to be alive in the EU … Let’s see:

Yesterday the 5yr Italian Notes hit 7.7% with the yield curve going flat after that (I am predicting that the Italian yield curve will go inverted before the weekend) … and with their debt level being what it is (just north of 1 trillion) it surprises no one their debt load isn’t sustainable at 6.7% let alone 7.7%. Right now it sucks to be Italy.
 
Remember, it was yield levels just a little below these that forced Greece and Ireland to start sending up flares and calling in their “maydays” to the rest of the EU. With Italy’s economy being 3-4 times both Greece and Ireland, it will take some real money and a real plan happening really really fast to slow this freight train down. (Read …it’s not going to happen).
 
In mathematical textbooks written on risk management, one of the most common and persistent errors in the world of trading is the presumption of infinite liquidity at a single price (or sometimes at any price) during a time of crisis. That is because liquidity is the one asset whose supply disappears as its price rises. This is why we get volatility spikes during stock market sell-offs and large gaps on the charts when the unexpected happens. Another thing we see at times like this are a widening of the spreads between the Italian 10 yr notes, and the German 10 yr notes… which tells us to what degree the market values the risk of owning Italy over Germany …yesterday we saw that spread go to 125 bp and then pull back to about an even 100 bp. wow! That’s alot and it’s only going to get bigger.
 
There is nothing anyone can do to make this work. Italy is going to default and that’s all there is to it. Much better to just get it over with now than in 5-10 yrs, complete with all of the hand wringing and bailouts that would go with it). Or are you looking forward to 10 or 15 more years of on-again, off-again bailout funds, stability funds, EU votes, eurocrat politicking, yield spikes, shock and awe, volatility over nothing, and constant uncertainty? I’m sure not; it’s bad for business even for people who don’t even do business in Europe much less own any of this toxic debt.
 
I hope I don’t sound too cynical when I declare …”Well if there is nothing that can be done to make it work… then I may as well look for ways to profit from it not working”. So you weigh the various scenarios and then search for a spot in the market to exploit for fun and profit. What better place to start looking for those weak points, than in places where the government, and not the market, have been calling the shots…government meddling in the markets, where they insist on calling both the dance and the tune always creates exploitable opportuinities.
 
In other words in places like the “swissie”, who’s value was artificially pegged at 1.20 Euros back at the end of September. Whats happening now is classified for modeling purposes as a “Black Swan event” meaning an event that is so rare and unpredictable that it’s almost impossible to factor into the “grand equations”, including the options pricing equation. These Black Swan events are the achilles heel of forecasters. What that means in this case is this: right now with the euro/swissie artificially pegged at 1.20 Euros we have an options pricing model that does not factor this into its pricing strategy… you with me?
 
Let me put it a different way, essentially, what we have right now is a dam with the water rapidly rising behind it, and at some point that dam (the price pegged value freeze) is going to burst and we will see a very sudden rise in the intrinsic value (IV) of the swissie. The liklihood of this happening, we can predict with a fair amount of accuracy and not too much work.
 
Keep in mind that the fact this dam even exists is not considered by the currency option models which has been keeping the IV’s low. Also keeping these options prices low is the Black-Scholes-Merton model which also contains no way to factor in these “black-swan” events, and since it uses the most simplistic log normal distribution assumptions…it too is responsible for the IV’s being very low – this weakness is very exploitable and has the potential of being a big money maker provided:

– The 10 yr Italian Notes stay up over 6.70% ,

– The Italian yield curve goes inverted (Look for that to happen in the next 48 hrs), and

– The market maintains a huge comparative yield spread between italy and everyone else.

By the weekend all 3 of these factors should be in play …

According to the news wire…the Italian 10 yrs just bottomed out at 7.09% with a lot of help from the ECB.

Whats Goin On With the Occupy Movements? – Two Different Viewpoints~!

In the spirit of fair play and equal time I decided to post a recent blog on the Occupy Portland Movement written by a friend of mine; David Loftus. David has been actively volunteering his time and effort to the OP movement and has a much different perspective than I do.

My take on these occupy movements taking place all over the country (with varying degrees of participation and success)is this:

1. I question any movements motives and agendas that is as manufactured and contrived as this one was. Breitbart’s reposted emails spelled out the movements genesis with very little left to doubt.

2. David is upset because he thinks the media has been purposely ignoring what the movement has been saying and doing since it started. I posted over 100 links to various news stories (all reporting some level of criminal activity or arrest) to prove him wrong. The truth is we are both right and wrong at the same time; they are getting their coverage …it’s just been all negative and I agree that, “yes” the rest of what they6 have been up too has been curiously as missing in action as Ron Paul’s campaign coverage.

3. My biggest concern is that the occupy movement has gone hunting with a shotgun and is more focused on killing something than killing the right thing. I told David and others that if they are after corporations (who are designed to make money for their shareholders), and rich people then they have the wrong targets in their sites. If however they are after Wall Street and the small group of international financiers who have been actively trying to enslave us all …then I am with them.

4. Why in the world would these occupy movements be holding hands with big labor? This is a huge concern. Granted, the OWS appears to have been started by big labor but in my opinion it’s impossible to protest jobs being sent overseas and be pro-labor union.

In my opinion the OWS people in every city need to police their ranks, clean up their campsites, exclude the drug addicts, freeloaders, racists and criminals. Take some of their money and rent portable toilets, sever ties with the labor unions who are using them as shills to do the heavy lifting and advance the movement for them. Anyone who remembers their “Cloward and Piven” and “Alinsky” training manuals will no doubt see that this movement appears to be following their scripts, line and verse. They need to refine their aim so they target the cause of the problems and not just the symptoms. The should be demanding an end to the Federal Reserve! They should be demanding a breakup of the TBTF Banks and force a clear separation between their banking operations and their investment banking business. They should be demanding a smaller and less intrusive government and finally they should take a good long look at the people currently in office who accept money from Wall Street and in return vote in lockstep for Wall Street every single time (Obama, Wyden. Blumenauer, Frank, Pelosi et. al) and organize to have them retired to the scrap heap of corrupt politicians who sold out the interests of this country in favor of their own.

Here is David’s Blog posts on Occupy Portland:

Occupy Portland, part 1 – First Impressions

I knew that if I volunteered at the Information desk I’d be learning a lot more than I’d be helping anyone. But that was part of the point: I figured this would be the fastest way to get a handle on what’s been happening on Chapman and Lownsdale Squares, downtown Portland, over the past two weeks.

You probably won’t be able to read it in the above photo, but posted at the entrance to Lownsdale Square, and elsewhere around the parks, are the camp’s extensive “Collective Agreement on Guidelines for Community Safety and Well-Being.” They dub the Occupy site weapon-free and nonviolent; prohibit any recreational alcohol or drug use; sequester cigarette smoking to the corner of SW 4th and Main; and call for respectful treatment among everyone, among other things. The panel on the right lists the steps to take in response to any threats to safety and well-being on the site.

I had participated in the initial protest march on Oct. 6 that involved at least 4,000 people and might have drawn in as much as 6,000 or 10,000 – various numbers have gotten batted around in the media – but I hadn’t had a chance to get a good look at the site where the long-haul protesters had chosen to camp ever since.
I looked around for an hour on Thursday, Oct. 20 and was intrigued by what I saw. When I came home, I skimmed the local newspaper’s website to check the latest official spin, and found the usual snarky comments from readers … probably people living out in the suburbs who had never been in these parks a minute of their life, never mind checking out the protest for themselves. Then a Facebook friend dumped a bunch of the usual “witticisms” about gross, un-bathed hippy types and the smell, and that made up my mind to get involved.
So for four hours on the morning of Oct. 21, 2011, the fifteenth day of the Occupy Portland protest and the fourteenth morning of occupation, I sat at the table in the Information tent and talked with people who stepped up to it.
It turned out not to matter that I didn’t know much. Most citizens who came to the Information desk just wanted to talk. Some were curious folks who asked the usual “What is this for? What are you doing here?” — not me, in particular, just the entire camp — and I gave them my answer. At this point there is no single right answer, and I certainly wasn’t authorized to speak on behalf of anyone else. Others just wanted to know how the protest was going.
Still other visitors were passing through Portland and either desired to see what they’d been hearing about on the TV, or had news from other Occupy protests to pass along to us. CONTINUED AT THE SOURCE!

There are at least two conflicting views of the Occupy Wall Street mob. One is that the media are overplaying the protests and that they are much ado about nothing. The idea is that the protesters are primarily a bunch of idealistic kids living out their fantasies of the turn-on, tune-in, drop-out crowd of the 1960s.
At the other extreme is the view that the protests are the start of a worldwide left-wing revolution promoted by communists, union Mafiosos and a variety of down-with-the-rich misfits. While I believe that the goofy, confused kids — who can’t seem to coherently explain why they are protesting — are being used by the heavyweight, behind-the-scenes players who are funding the protests, that’s beside the point.
What’s more important is to understand that these kinds of protests are nothing new. Class warfare has been a fact of life throughout most of modern history. Whether we like it or not, envy fuels a never-ending, contentious relationship between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” It’s always been that way, and it always will be. The “Kumbaya” stuff is nice for dreamers who love to Twitterpate, but it’s not reality. Human nature is what it is.
Just as the mid-1950s represent the pinnacle of Western civilization, the French Revolution has always served as the gold standard for aspiring left-wing revolutionaries. The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, which came on the scene nearly 130 years later, is often held up as a model for would-be revolutionaries, but it didn’t have the passion and romanticism of the French Revolution.
The reason those on the far left have always held a special place in their hearts for the Maximilien Robespierre-inspired guillotine crowd in France is that the riffraff of that country transformed their angry fantasies into the spilling of blood — lots of it — and did so without mercy or discretion. Even the revolution’s leader, Robespierre, ended up losing his head!
That brings us back to today and the Fleabagger protests. While some may be hesitant to attribute too much power to the nation’s most famous community organizer, the sad truth is that the driving force behind the current movement is none other than Chairman Obama.
Between playing the role of venture capitalist with your money and instructing fellow radical Eric Holder to double down on the Fast and Furious cover-up, he has been stoking the fires of revolution since the day he arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Those who don’t get this are naïve to the core. CONT’D HERE

Some things I know are true and other things I think are true… This one I know!


There are some things I know very little about and there are other things I know a great deal about and of course there is everything else which falls somewhere in between. One of the topics that falls squarely on the “I know a great deal about it” side of things is giving money away to universities, museums, the arts, you name it.

If you have a pulse then you have heard the uproar and tried to wade through the BS being spewed forth over the Koch Brothers’ Foundation giving Florida State University 1.5 million dollars to hire two new professors to teach some special economic courses …pretty outrageous I know. … The Koch foundation had some strings attached (as there often times are) regarding who the university would hire to do this and the ability to veto anyone the foundation had any objection too. OMG! you would have thought someone had started WWIII or insulted motherhood or some other outrageous act. Journalists from every daily weekly and monthly newspaper in the country said nearly the exact same thing …expressing the right amount of manufactured shock and outrage. Every left wing blog exploded with headlines like “Koch Brothers Buy Professors at FSU” or “FSU Integrity for sale …Price $1.5MM” …Has it come to the point that the left isn’t capable of telling the truth about anything to anyone? If I read one more blog that makes sure to remind us that 15 yrs ago Yale returned a 20 million dollar gift because th donor asked for the same sor4t of conditions that the Koch Bros . had asked for… (Read: Yale – Good , FSU- Bad)

Had those journalists …all hungry for the ‘scoop’, simply taken the time to ask or look it up … they would have all discovered what I am going to tell you right now. There are generally 2 types of money a university customarily chases …

1. Endowment grants
2. Operating /program grants

The endowment grants are generally larger sums of money where the actual donation itself is given to the university where it is added to the institutions endowments account and the only money that can be spent of this donation ….are the earnings the endowment throws off each year always leaving the principle untouched.

The operating grants are generally smaller and done to support special projects etc. Most foundations give operating gifts exclusively. Endowment gifts produce investment returns, while operating gifts are spent directly during the grant period. Operating contributions come with strings, because they are spent directly, and then evaluated immediately. While it’s true most universities do have policies regarding ENDOWMENT GRANTS … but they don’t when they are talking about operating contributions. Almost all foundations who approve money for an operating grant will want to know:

1. How was the money spent?
2. Was it effective?
3. What is the evidence that it had an impact?
4. How can I justify a future renewal of this money?

Operating contributions come with strings, because they are spent directly, and then evaluated immediately.and the generous people and foundations who offer these types of grants are our friends and would want to know all about how their money was spent. It is perfectly acceptable for a grantor to retain some control of their money …including veto powers and being able to have their grant money returned to them if there are any irregularities or the money was spent supporting people other than the ones required in the grant.

The money the Koch’s gave to FSU was grant money to be used for operations, and it’s perfectly legal and acceptable if that’s how it’s been set up. Once again the MSM is not only giving out bad information …they are giving it out to any one of 2500 people ..or more! not concerned over whether it’s accurate and true or not.

Now …left-wingers before we continue could you please find a conservative somewhere nearby and look him in the eye and apologize to him for slandering him and sullying and besmirching his good name ….please!
