George Soros, Al Gore, Warren Buffet, Maurice StrongThe Democrat-loving mainstream media is missing the boat on Warren Buffet’s take of America’s economic meltdown as …”a sort of economic Pearl Harbor we’re going through.”

That being the case, then surely the first question should be: “Who is attacking the U.S.?”

Is ANYONE surprised?

When one has more money than one can ever spend (and the poor of the world don’t interest you), what comes next?

What comes next is the seeking of power.

Once upon a time, I remember there being as many threads here at FR about Maurice Strong as there were George Soros. I especially remember the investigations on him and Tongsun Park.

Now, with Global Warming and the financial markets being the hot topics, ironically, I've seen nothing on Maurice Strong. He would be a main man behind the curtain too.

Warren Buffet is a smart man.

However he has made alot of money on the inheritance tax on wealth in this country.

He bought companies that founders families had to sell to pay death taxes.

Now he has shown his hand by investing 5 billion in Goldman with a chance to buy more at a steal of a price. It would be worthless unless they get US guarantees

looking to steal assets from AIG. What a month for him and the Goverment.

>>>Chicago Climate Exchange

Some more tidbits:

http://blog.newyorkcitycommunity.us/2008/09/20/jon-corzine-and-hot-air—perfect-together.aspx

Excerpt:

Maurice Strong is involved with Chicago’s Climate Exchange. Al Gore is chairman of a private equity firm called Generation Investment Management. That firm invests money from institutions and wealthy investors in companies that are going green. Generation Investment Management purchases carbon dioxide offsets. The co-founder of Generation Investment Management is former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson, who is currently the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury. Goldman Sachs bought 10% of Chicago’s Climate Exchange shares for $23 million. Chicago’s Climate Exchange owns half of the European Climate Exchange, Europe’s largest carbon trading company.

Maurice Strong: Chicago Climate Exchange’s board member. Canadian Maurice Strong has made a career and a fortune out of financial rip-offs. Strong served on the board of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (World Conservation Union) and was an advisor to the UN’s Kofi Annan. Among many other things, he was the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program in the 1970’s and Secretary General of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development, also known as the Earth Summit.

Goldman Sachs: The largest shareholder of the Chicago Climate Exchange and the second largest shareholder of the InterContinental Exchange. In fact, Goldman Sachs put Al Gore into the carbon offset hedge fund business in 2003 when David Blood, a former CEO of Goldman Sachs Assets Management, along with two other former Goldman Sachs officers, helped Gore establish his firm, General Investment Management, which focuses on “Sustainable Investing” by peddling carbon offsets.

Jon Corzine: He is now the Governor of NJ. He retired from Goldman Sachs in 1999 after taking the firm public and receiving at least $320 million worth of its stock. He ran for the Senate in New Jersey in 2000, spending more than $60 million of his fortune to win the seat. The bubble of high-priced technology stocks began to burst in March 2000. In August 2000, the SEC issued a warning against aftermarket sales, also known as “laddering.” “I’ve never even heard the term ‘laddering’ before,” Corzine said.

However, Nicholas Maier of Cramer & Co. said it happened on Corzine’s watch. “For Corzine not to know of a common practice being utilized to generate and manipulate stock prices would be surprising,” Mr. Maier said. “He was obviously there during this time. I definitively saw his company engaged in illegal activity. They (the SEC) expressed to me that laddering is a trickier thing [to prove],” Maier said. “I will say it. They did it. They laddered. Whether the SEC can construct a case is a different story.”

Al Gore: Owns a carbon trading business, Generation Investment Management. They were banked with the Lehman Bros. The Generation Investment Management business has considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist.

Merrill Lynch: Deeply involved in the Carbon trading business. They are a founding member and primary sponsor of the U.K.-based Carbon Disclosure Project. Merrill Lynch is headed by John A Thain who is a Goldman Sachs alumni.

Lehman Brothers: Created a propaganda piece last year about climate change to make their investors keep getting high profits from the Kyoto carbon trade scheme and the support of huge public subventions. All that, of course, with the applause of the usual choir of politicians, the entire media and the Greens.

A year ago they couldn’t predict their bankruptcy but were predicting the climate 100 years ahead. Thousands of green militants have been using the Lehman report as a proof of global warming and impending chaos. The report is the basis for policies on climate change in Spain, Argentina and several other countries playing the progress game.

Chicago Climate Exchange: The Exchange owes it existence in part to the Joyce Foundation, the Chicago-based liberal foundation philanthropy that provided $347,000 in grant support in 2000 for a preliminary study to test the viability of a market in carbon credits. On the CCX board of directors is the ubiquitous Maurice Strong, a Canadian industrialist and diplomat who since the 1970s has helped create an international policy agenda for the environmentalist movement.

****Joyce Foundation: Provided grant support to test the market in carbon credits. Barack Hussein Obama sat on their Board for 8 years.**** (Oops, Obama, is that you?)

If the GOP ever gets back in power they need to get rid of the RINO types like Bush - he has been a disgrace. They need to hold trials and convict the dems and RINOs who are behind this. The GOOGLE CEO needs to be arrested along with George Soros and all of the member of the black caucus for the lies, hate and back room dealings that have gone on for all to long.

George Soros invested $811 million (in the single purchase that we know of) in drilling for Brasilian Oil.

While paying big bucks to Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, and an army of democrat party monsters to sabotague US Oil and other energy production!

Not only does he buy-up what death taxes force heirs to sell, he has an “insurance” product to help estates pay the taxes when the founder dies.

Buffet is against ending the death taxes because they are so beneficial to him.

Anyone not aware of Strong's role in taking over the planet for the Greens and the UN either can't read or just hasn't been paying attention. But learning about it requires an attention span capable of concentrating on more than one paragraph at a time without one-liners and funny photoshopped images. That may be why some here are taken by surprise.

This article dating back to 1997 is just one of many that have been published about Strong and his environmental cabal; MAURICE STRONG

Eleven years ago this article contained everything required to understand the global power grab by Strong, Soros, Gore, the UN and its infernal NGOs, etc. Here's a sample:

"It is instructive to read Strong's 1972 Stockholm speech and compare it with the issues of Earth Summit 1992. Strong warned urgently about global warming, the devastation of forests, the loss of biodiversity, polluted oceans, the population time bomb. Then as now, he invited to the conference the brand-new environmental NGOs [non-governmental organizations]: he gave them money to come; they were invited to raise hell at home. After Stockholm, environment issues became part of the administrative framework in Canada, the U.S., Britain, and Europe.

"In the meantime, Strong continued the international networking on which his influence rests. He became a member of the World Commission on Environment and Development (the Brundtland Commission). He found time to serve as president of the World Federation of United Nations Associations, on the executive committee of the Society for International Development, and as an advisor to the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund. Above all, he served on the Commission on Global Governance --which, as we shall see, plays a crucial part in the international power grab."
