Glenn Beck vs. Joel Rogers, King of the Progressives
If Fox News commentator, Glenn Beck is right, Joel Rogers may be the man behind Obama and the entire Progressive Movement. Not a far stretch as Progressives got their start in Wisconsin, where Joel teaches law, political science and sociology at the University of Wisconsin. Thursday morning, Joel was a featured speaker at an Earth Day conference in Chicago on public transportation. Needless to say, hes all for it!
But Beck has connected the dots on his magic blackboards (He needs about three or four now, at least!) as he ties Joel Rogers as the man behind most of the Progressive movements organizations. The focus of todays program was the pending Cap and Trade bill, now in the Senate. Back in the early 1990s, Obama and his close friend and adviser, Valerie Jarrett, arranged for funding Chicagos Climate Credit Exchange from the Joyce Foundation. The exchange is already trading carbon credits, the core to Cap & Trade. Such an exchange is a must have to institute the program.
Next, Beck relates how Franklin Raines, one of Obamas principal fund raisers in 2008, had purchased the technology for managing Cap & Trade while the head of Fannie Mae. Why would Fannie Mae, a mortgage lending entity, invest in such software? As a Government Secured Enterprise, it gives Uncle Sugar a piece of a potential $10 TRILLION dollar prize.
Everybody is in on this caper. Beck uses the film Oceans Eleven (the crappy remake) as an analogy, but I think Kellys Heroes may be more to the point. Even the band and grave diggers are in on this scheme. The Apollo Alliance, ACORN, SEIU, AFL-CIO, Goldman Sachs, Al Gore, Vance Jones, Bill Ayers, and a partridge in a pear tree. At the center of them all, keeping everybody in synch, is Joel Rogers. He has his own group, COWS, which focuses on spreading the Progressive message in Wisconsin, Emerald Cities, which is into urban planning for the New World Order, and the Brookings Institute, to keep the egg-heads in line.
Joel Rogers belongs to just about all of them, or has ties through other cross-over groups like The New Party and Change to Win, where Andy Stern is now hanging out in since leaving SEIU. Another key player is Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, whos name pops up a lot, too. Shes CEO of Green for All, was a bigwig in the AFL-CIO, and works with a host of groups like Working Partnerships, USA, National Alliance for Fair Employment Partnership for Working Families and Emerald Cities. When you check out these groups, you will see people serving on several of them. Its all one big happy Progressive family. Naturally, all are in favor of Cap and Trade. Is Beck hitting pay-dirt finally? Is Cap & Trade the next step towards a totalitarian state?
Well since you PINGed me to this...
Beck is the progressive...
I cant think of anything more progressive than believing you will progress from man to a god...
You won’t have a choice unless you wish to freeze in the dark!
In this country, most of the money will be derived from your electricity bill.
Thanks very much for the ping to #22, Taxman. Great post, Painesright! GRRRREAT thread! Thanks to every poster.
HOORAY Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck is OUTSTANDING!
Finally hitting pay dirt?... Geln ahs been plowing the filth of the Progressives for months now, and this is but another in the crop of scum he’s surfaced.
Not to worry - Gores had that down pat.
an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Golly, isn't he worried about those rising seas?
This makes his other mansion looks like a cottage - Sure glad he's concerned about energy use. Just THINK of the place he'd have if he wasn't.
I love Glenn ,,, I have a commercial property that is only partially used right now ,, electricity usage will go from $10k/yr. to $1k and natural gas from $40K to $0 ... how do I profit from the CCExchange TODAY? ,, take some cash from the believers...
Beck is a Progressive?
Would you care to back that assertion up with facts?
He is doing the work of every major news outlet in the world!
No one else is on this story, as far as I know.
When it is over, and the Evil Forces of Whacko Environmentalism are soundly defeated, we’ll be thanking him for his Herculean efforts.
He is taking a lot of flack right now because of his Apocalyptic warnings.
But then so did Winston Churchill, and he turned out to be right.
See post 22
“The Global-Warming-Cap-and-Trade-Carbon-Credit FRaud is the largest, most complex and most complete scam ever conjured up in world history.”
I’ve been saying this very thing from the first time I saw oblablah (lower case intended)state that our utilities would necessarily skyrocket. Good to see Glen peeling back the layers of this onion.
Remember when Glen started his series about know your czars? He was right about that too!
Sending to everyone I know. What else can we do?
Thanks so much for the ping:)
Ping. Post 22 sums it up.
( Sitting here shaking my head in dismay! )
Geeze! There are things about Beck that get me, too. Hey! It really annoys me that Beck insults those who question Obama’s eligibility.
BUT..Beck is doing GENIUS level work here! He needs our SUPPORT!
It is time we put pettiness aside.
“And CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC work to cover it all up and hide and protect the criminals and thugs and they wonder why Beck & Foxs ratings are so high...,”
Notice how they all avoid Fannie & Freddie’s involvement in the housing bubble? There are clips of Bush stating something has to be done about them and clips of Bawney stating the entities are just fine.
Now we have this administration taking Fannie & Freddie over and pouring even more mega bucks into them.
And what do we hear about the dumocrats roll in all of it?.....crickets. All the alphabet networks cover is oblablah going after the, “bad guys” on wall street. All the while, they are in bed with wall street.
Superb summary, and thank you, Painesright, for providing this.
There is a wealth of information here for concerned citizens to begin investigating. I urge you all to research these organizations, their sources of funding, their connections, and their intentions.
I do not believe I'm guilty of exaggeration in saying that there is a coup d'état underway in the United States: it is - so far - a largely quiet revolution organized and directed by individuals and groups linked together by a powerful infrastructure they have built over the course of the last thirty years.
Kudos to Glenn Beck for shining a spotlight into their dark corners. As citizens, we must now do the work that the mainstream media refuses to do - and will continue to refuse to do - in no small measure because they are interested in and supportive of the Progressive aims of this far-ranging effort to transform America into a socialist democratic state.
Moreover, it is readily apparent that the Progressives who largely funded their infrastructure development with tax-free foundation money, now plan to fund their implementation scheme with our money, whether taken from us in the form of taxes, fees, fines, or corporate pass-through charges.
Restating for clarity: The primary beneficiaries of socialism are socialist politicians. The leadership of the Dem party is all about the leadership of the Dem party; screw the Dem party rank and file, to he** with the independents and the rest of us are not even on the radar. The primary goal is to take control and then loot the place. When it comes down to it they are just common criminals.
He is waiting for someone to prove him wrong. The carbon trading scheme is designed as a permanent Democrat election machine and will crush the life out of America if implemented.
We wouldn’t want to say anything to make anyone think we’re kooks, because that is more important than the enslavement of the American people to the state. What’s the matter with enslavement anyway? It has persisted throughout much of our history and this little “Freedom and Liberty” experiment is too hard.
Does this sarcasm tag make my butt look big?
The differences between conservatives hanging out together and progressives hanging out together is that conservatives do not plot to control every aspect of individual liberty under the auspices of big government.
On the other hand, the progressive, left wingers are always involved in enterprises that seek to manipulate people to do their bidding. Progressives believe they are superior intellectuals and conservatives have no basis.
I take issue on your statement that leftists hanging together do not entail a conspiracy to take control of the World. It appears to me they are positioning themselves to be not only the collectors, but the prosecutors of those who defend personal liberty. You are too trustful of socialists when they lie and smile about it.
"Secession belongs to a different class of remedies. It is to be justified upon the basis that the States are Sovereign. There was a time when none denied it. I hope the time may come again, when a better comprehension of the theory of our Government, and the inalienable rights of the people of the States, will prevent any one from denying that each State is a Sovereign, and thus may reclaim the grants which it has made to any agent whomsoever."
