Skip to comments.Obama Czar Has Socialist Ties
Posted on 01/13/2009 12:13:30 PM PST by chuck_the_tv_out
Incoming Global Warming Czar Carol Browner was until last week listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group that advocates what's called "global governance" and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change. The Washington Times reports Browner's name and biography were listed on the Web page for Socialist International .
Mr. Obama's transition team says Browner's membership in the organization is not a problem and that it brings experience in policymaking to her new role. But House Minority Leader John Boehners spokeswoman Antonia Ferrier asks, Does she agree with the group's positions on global governance- that the United States should abdicate its international leadership to international organizations? Does she support its position that the international community should be the ultimate arbiter of climate change policy?"

0be’s a marxist, so why should it be surprising that he hangs out with “progressives”?
“OBAMA CZAR HAS SOCIALIST TIES”
And that is news? Obama himself is a socialist.
Socialist "Ties?" I'd say it was more than just "ties." More like "fellow traveler" or "true believer." Maybe even "Komrade."
Who did he nominate? George W.? George H.W.? Henry Kissinger? Lawrence Eagleburger? Colin Powell? James Baker? Brent Scowcroft?
Socialist you say?
So what's new? Especially when it comes to retarding everyone's living standard; except for the elite governing fascists. I mean only a handful of super genus's have that right, when it comes to governing the wretched masses!
Hey he's a socialist too; that's why everyone voted him in! JEZZ.
What is all this talk about Carol Browner being part of Socialist International? Carol Browner was never part of Socialist International
I’m bout ready to throw in the towel. Let’s have Sarah Palin secede Alaska and all move up there while the rest grovel in the USBR (United Socialist Banana Republc), formerly the USA.
Global Warming Czar
They’re spending our taxes for this junk science is revolting enough
"In April 1985 [Leon] Panetta joined with 13 of his leftist congressional colleagues including Ron Dellums, Don Edwards, George Miller, Christopher Dodd, and Les Aspin in sponsoring a 20th anniversary fund-raising gala for the pro-Marxist Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), which had been described by Brian Crozier, director of the London Institute for the Study of Conflict, as the "perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB." The IPS was originally funded with millions of dollars from the Faberge perfume magnate and Communist Party member Samuel Rubin and his wife."
"Readers who recall the movement to impeach Bill Clinton remember that one of the charges raised by Clinton's critics was the conflict of interest created when individuals connected with the Chinese Overseas Shipping Company (COSCO) such as John Huang, Charles Trie, and James and Mochtar Riady helped funnel contributions to the Clinton reelection campaign. Afterwards, the Clinton administration lobbied for granting COSCO a 10-year lease on the former Long Beach Naval Shipyard in California.
During a March 1997 edition of CNBC's Equal Time program, California Republican State Senator Dick Mountjoy noted that COSCO-linked arms dealer Wang Jun had been granted personal access to President Clinton, and that Wang's business associates had smuggled illegal assault weapons into California for delivery to street gangs by making use of a ship owned and operated by COSCO.
Mountjoy then stated:
The next thing you know, (then-Chief of Staff) Leon Panetta is down here negotiating that port for the Chinese.
There is much more to the COSCO-Long Beach connection than we have room for here, but a good summary of the threat the arrangement made to U.S. security may be found in an item inserted into the Congressional Record by Rep. Gerald B.H. Solomon on May 20, 1997.
Even the most unbiased of observers may legitimately ask: Why on Earth is an individual who helped negotiate the turnover of the Long Beach Naval Shipyard to the communist Chinese, thereby creating the threat to U.S. national security described in the Washington Times article by Rowan Scarborough and inserted into the Congressional Record by Rep. Solomon, being considered for a top position at one of our nation's most critical intelligence agencies?"

Profile: Institute For Policy Studies (IPS)
IPSs [Institute For Policy Studies] Washington, DC headquarters quickly became a resource center for national reporters and a place for KGB agents from the nearby Soviet embassy to convene and strategize. Cora Weiss headed one of the IPS's most successful forays -- into Riverside Church in Manhattan. She was invited there in 1978 by the Reverend William Sloane Coffin to run the church's Disarmament Program, which sought to consolidate Soviet nuclear superiority in Europe -- in the name of "peace." In 1982 Weiss helped organize the largest pro-disarmament demonstration ever held. Staged in New York City, the rally was attended by a coalition of communist organizations. During her decade-long tenure at Riverside, which became home to the National Council of Churches, Weiss regularly received Russian KGB agents, Sandinista friends, and Cuban intelligence agents. Weiss became infamous for her role in the psychological warfare conducted against U.S. prisoners of war held in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" during the Vietnam War.
The Liberation News Service, which is a news source for hundreds of "alternative" publications nationwide (with antiwar, Marxist-oriented perspectives), was founded in 1967 with IPS assistance."

Obamas Agenda for Change and the 2009 Summit of the Americas
'Yes We Can' Change for the Americas Coming from Below
Hemispheric resistance to the first attempt by the U.S. to force the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) on every nation on this continent led to its eventual defeat at the IV Summit of the Americas, held in Argentina in 2005. The organizers of the April 2009 V Summit of the Americas had hoped to focus on a social agenda of providing a decent living for all those who call the Americas their home. The emergence of the PPA, or Bushs Plan B for the FTAA, represents a threat to the urgent need of having all nations in the hemisphere focus on tackling the disparities that make the region the most unequeal in the world.
According to Obama, what's good for the people of the Americas is good for the United States. Among the specific proposals Obama has made (political freedom and democracy; freedom from fear and security; freedom from want and opportunity) in the New Partnership for the Americas document, he says that its time for a new alliance of the Americas that leaves behind eight years of failed policies and top down reforms, and puts forward instead an agenda that advances democracy, security, and opportunity from the bottom up. For Obama to make good on his vision for a new "partnership" in the Americas, the divisive Bush PPA initiative must be laid to rest well before the April V Summit of the Americas gets underway.
The 2009 IV Peoples Summit in Trinidad and Tobago
On April 17-19, 2009, the IV Peoples Summit will be taking place in Port of Spain, Trinidad (while heads of state are simultaneously meeting at the V Summit of the Americas).The message of a "change agenda" for the hemisphere will be brought to the island nation by social movements coming from all points in between Alaska and Tierra del Fuego. A key focus for discussions during the Peoples Summit will be the economic meltdown hitting the capitalist system, and the opening that this provides for the implementation of a peoples agenda promoting sustainable development, social justice, equity, and peaceful coexistence.[ie, communism/socialism -etl]
In conjunction with the Hemispheric Social Alliance, social movements present in Trinidad and Tobago will be providing a "change agenda" that, in large measure, will likely be echoed by representatives from many of the newly elected governments in Latin America and the Caribbean. The V Summit of the Americas will be an ideal setting for Obama to signal a new respectful and consultative role for the US in the Americas as well. Will Obama avail himself of the opportunity to take this courageous step forward? Ojalá!
Also, it’s not just about socialist economics, these people are out to undermine America’s security. They are more aligned with our enemies (Russia, China, Hugo, Cuba, etc) than they are with traditional America. Perhaps if the people who are interested in government handouts knew more about the security issues, they might wake the hell up and abandon the demon-rat party.
He got elected and that's what the constitution says he can do. Heck he could make Scientology the litmus test for all his appointments and there's nothing any of us that voted against him can do.
What we don't need to do is help any RINO's from now on. It's a waste of our money and does nothing for us. RINO's basically threw money at problems and were just Democrat-lite.
Don't ever give anything to any "committee" that has "Republican" on it. Give directly to the candidates through the internet of via snail mail. That's the only way to starve the RINO's. Kill them at the watering hole..... money.
Just another Obama tie to socialism.
Hell, the whole rotten mess is socialist.
