The $10 Trillion Climate Fraud (Cap-And-Trade and CCX)
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 04/28/2010 | IBD Editorials

Posted on 04/30/2010 8:07:12 AM PDT by pyx

Cap-And-Trade: While senators froth over Goldman Sachs and derivatives, a climate trading scheme being run out of the Chicago Climate Exchange would make Bernie Madoff blush. Its trail leads to the White House.

Lost in the recent headlines was Al Gore's appearance Monday in Denver at the annual meeting of the Council of Foundations, an association of the nation's philanthropic leaders.

Glen really hit them hard. And it makes sense. How do we stop that machine? The fix is in and it will take more than just praying and marching to get the job done. Even November will may be too late to stop the damage since it is so massive.

We had a good Beck thread yesterday. He points us in the general direction and we go collecting info. Beck didn’t say much about Phil Angelides but he led us to a place where we couldn’t miss him.

“Once you price CO2 and put a price on it, you find, as you would with any other product, it tends to be rationed. We as a people on this planet have lived under the false concept that air and water were free. And we’ve learned with a planet of 7 billion people, that we have to ration these precious goods. And the good old price system is the best way to do it.”

“They’ll never find out how we made the coal mine and oil rig disasters. Once we stop all energy production in th US Cap & Trade is a shoe-in. Hey Rahm, make sure those union workers get paid for those wack jobs. Then it’s trillions and CCX”

Isn’t this like that Bruce Willis movie where it APPEARED terrorists wanted a bunch of demands met when in reality is was a good old fashioned bank robbery.

“Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select
individuals in the "green" movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.
Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 --
the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H.,
criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had "nothing to do with Fannie Mae's charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable."

"It wasn't about mortgages. It was about greenbacks. The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation."


“Here comes the next bubble -- carbon trading
Forget CDOs and other inventions of the great credit bubble. That’s all old hat.
Investment bankers are moving on to an area of securities trading that is potentially even
more lucrative, and what’s more, even has a social value – saving the planet.
….According to Mr Schapiro, carbon trading is now the fastest growing commodities
market on earth. Since Kyoto signatories bought in to the cap and trade concept in 2005,
there have been more than $300bn carbon transactions, prompting several investment
banks, including Goldman Sachs and Barclays, to set up their own carbon trading desks.
But that’s just the start. If President Obama and his supporters can institute a cap-and-
trade system in the United States – and that’s a big if for this increasingly marooned
presidency – demand could explode into a $2 to $3 trillion market.

And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will
eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon market is based on
lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one. Since the market revolves around
creating carbon credits, or finding carbon reduction projects whose benefits can then be
sold to those with a surplus of emissions, it is entirely intangible.

“Carbon developers”, many of them employed by large multinationals, travel the world
in search of carbon reduction projects to sell, while firms of carbon accountants have been
established to verify on the United Nations’ behalf that those reductions are real.
The whole thing, though well intentioned, looks wide open to abuse and scams. “

I also have to take my hat off to both Canada Free Press' Judi McLeod and Freeper maggief. Judi McLeod and maggief spotted the CCX and Cap-and-Trade oddities way back on Saturday September 27, 2008 with this post on Free Republic.

maggieg named names in Post #6 on that thread. Talk about being, first to the punch ! Remind me never to be anywhere around when you're throwing upper-cuts, maggief ! LOL.

For those who would like a quick catch-up or a video review of the background on CCX and Cap-and-Trade, Glenn Beck has an archive of his Fox television programs. You can watch the Glenn's archive show from April 29, 2010 to catch up.

Lastly, Glenn Beck and many others such as Rush Limbaugh make mention that, "We The People" should look into CCX and Cap-and-Trade and not rely nearly as much as we have on the mainstream media. Therefore, if its OK with others, I will be posting follow up posts on this thread on, HowTo very simply be a Citizen Journalist. As Citizen Journalists, many of us are very effective and are by-and-large quite savvy when it comes to using new media on the Internet. All it takes is, knowing how and actually following through.

101 Steps to Better Blogging - Kim Roach

http://www.lifehack.org/articles/technology/101-steps-to-becoming-a-better-blogger.html

Actually, its now 102 VERY EASY Steps and it could be many more ... :)

I have noticed that the most successful bloggers online have all taken similar steps in becoming great bloggers. After lots of research and study, I can also tell you that blogging is much more complex than it seems to be on the surface. However, with a bit of effort, I believe anyone can become a successful blogger.

Here are 101 steps to becoming a better blogger…

1. First, I’m going to assume you’re using Wordpress. You are using Wordpress aren’t you? The built-in SEO and pinging functions make Wordpress a search engine machine.
2. Sign up for Feedburner.
3. Post at least once a day.
4. Optimize your blog for the search engines.
http://www.problogger.net/archives/2006/11/24/how-to-optimize-your-blog-for-search-engines/
5. Make sure you have an “About Me” page.
6. Submit your blog to 9Rules.
http://9rules.com/
7. Submit your blog to NewsNow.
http://www.newsnow.co.uk/
8. Let your readers see the REAL you. Blogging is more personal than conventional websites. Don’t be afraid to tell a few stories from your own life. By being real and personal, you will build a relationship with your readers based on loyalty and trust.
9. Blog and ping.
10. Submit your blog to rss and blog directories.
http://www.masternewmedia.org/rss/top55/
11. Use trackbacks.
12. Get involved in the blogosphere. Being a blogger is about being part of a community. Leave comments on other blogs and get to know your favorite bloggers.
13. Give your blog it’s own unique voice… You!
14. Spend 99% of your time focused on creating unique, quality content. Content is King; or as John Reese says, “content is King Kong”.
http://www.income.com/blog/
15. Add a large RSS subscription button to your site.
16. Place an RSS feed link at the bottom of every post.
17. Set up a MyBlogLog Widget.
http://www.mybloglog.com/

The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) advertises itself as "North America's only cap-and-trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide." Barack Obama served on the board of the Joyce Foundation from 1994 to 2002 when the CCX startup grants were issued. As president, pushing cap-and-trade is one of his highest priorities.

Greenhouse theory is pure bunkum. The "Greenhouse Effect" defies established laws of physics.

Jim. Can it make sense for your admins to create a forum titled Climate, or Global Warming other. Where all FReepers can tune into one place where everything is stored?
The function of the forum would be primarily for a centralized place to archive much of what has been coming out over the past year or so. And a place where groups may want to form in order to give local support to their state/fed/local representatives with easy to obtain article, science papers, graphs whatever.... at their finger tips.
Thanks for the consideration if it makes sense to do so.

All this week, Glenn Beck has been is doing his best to expose what is potentially the biggest con in history.

Before I lose you, let me state why this story is so very important: It appears that there is a chance that people at the very HIGHEST levels of our government are creating something-out-of-nothing (carbon credits) and then passing a law which will force American businesses to buy $10 TRILLION dollars worth of that something-out-of-nothing and then passing billions and billions and billions of dollars along to their political pals and business cohorts... uh, can you say “corruption and graft of the highest order”?!?

For some reason, other conservative sites are being slow to pick this up (afraid?!).

Let’s do our part to help Glenn get the word out.

Email this.
Tweet this.
Post this on Facebook.

Wherever and however you can get this out, do it.

Glenn Beck The One Thing 4/29 - Crime Inc.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4172383/the-one-thing-429

Go back and watch the 4/26 show if you need more back ground.

4/26 show Part 1:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQitjq2CXS0

4/26 show Part 2:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7zKCaSLISQ

In a nutshell, here is the deal:

The Chicago Climate Exchange CCX - a $10 trillion dollar carbon credit market (here’s where the creating something-out-of nothing comes in... it is literally a product created out of thin air.)

As Glenn says, they sell puffs of smoke! Enron would be proud!

Barack Obama helped to direct funds from The Joyce Foundation in order to fund the creation of the CCX. Remember, it is the CHICAGO Climate Exchange... nothing shady happening in Chicago, right?

Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s top advisor, was reportedly on the board of the CCX back in the early 2000’s.

There are many ex-Goldman Sachs executives and at least one ex-Goldman lobbyist working in the Obama administration.

A British company, Enterprise, is set to make billions off of the CCX market and is partially owned by Al Gore and Goldman Sachs among others.

Franklin Raines (the $90 Million Dollar Paycheck man of Fannie Mae accounting “irregularity” fame) bought the technology needed to run the CCX through Fannie Mae back when he was running Fannie.

Franklin Raines is/was an Obama friend and advisor (they have kind of tamped-down talk about that relationship since the whole financial meltdown thing happened).

The patent for the technology (owned by Fannie) to run the CCX was approved one day after Congress was taken over by the Democrats back in 2006.

Raines was reportedly also instrumental in starting Emerald Cities, a collaboration of radical, far left-wing groups who are planning on reaping billions of dollars in grants and other type of funding that will flow from the carbon trade credits that will be sold through the CCX.

Here is the link to Emerald Cities.

Look at their Board of Directors, members and staff bios in the About Us section! The “Members” tab under About Us reads like a Who’s Who of the Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Social Justice movement.

Dig down into their Goals, Policies and National Strategies pages. Count how many times they talk about redistributing wealth and income and achieving social justice!

Check out all of the ways they are planning to milk money out of this system. LOOK at the framework they have in place. They have been planning for a long, long time. This is NOT about the environment. It is about power and money, period.

“The Wizard”, as Glenn calls him, appears to be Joel Rogers. Here is Joel’s bio on the Emerald Cities webpage:

Joel Rogers
COWS, Director
Joel Rogers, a former labor organizer, is a professor of law, political science, public affairs, and sociology at the university. He is the director of COWS, MIP, and CSI, senior policy advisor to Green for All, and cofounder and first chair of the Apollo Alliance. Joel has written widely on democratic theory and contemporary politics and is a MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellow, identified by Newsweek as one of the 100 living Americans mostly likely to shape U.S. politics and culture in the 21st century. John Sweeney and Andy Stern jointly said of Rogers: “nobody outside the American labor movement has shaped our present thinking as profoundly.”

Here is a youtube video of (big mouth) Van Jones bragging about Joel Roberts’ Progressive Accomplishments:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b84fGcs-byQ

(Highlights: Jones brags about Joel Rogers’ roll in founding the Apollo Alliance, how the Stimulus is going to put something like $80 Billion dollars in this direction, The New Party which is now The Working Families Party “is the basic framework for what JUST TOOK OVER THE WHITE HOUSE”).

Did you get that?!? The New Party, which is now The Working Families Party, just took over our White House!

http://www.workingfamiliesparty.org/

Why is this so important? Well for one, it is possibly the biggest con in the history of the world. Making something-out-of-nothing and forcing people to buy $10 trillion dollars worth of it... breathtakingly brazen!

And two, Cap and Trade would cause the price of everything we buy and use to skyrocket. It would drive millions more American jobs overseas. Radical left-wing groups and politicians will reap untold political power and billions of dollars if Cap and Trade passes.

I know we are tired and overwhelmed (that is one of their main goals, to overwhelm us)... but we have to stop this.

No less than the future of our country depends on it.

Glenn Beck clued Fox viewers onto Obama's connection to the Chicago Climate Change. The truth always outs—even when you’re Barack Obama.

Obama’s involvement in Chicago Climate Exchange—the rest of the story
By Judi McLeod, March 25, 2009, Canadian Free Press

“Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program He Is Now Pushing Through Congress” is a FOXNews story by Ed Barnes.

In short, “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president.”

The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

And that’s only the beginning of this tawdry tale, Mr. Barnes. The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange is heavily influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong. For years now Strong and Gore have been cashing in on that lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.

Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, Wikipedia-described as “the world’s first and North America’s only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil.”

Gore, self-proclaimed Patron Saint of the Environment, buys his carbon off-sets from himself—the Generation Investment Management LLP, “an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C., of which he is both chairman and founding partner. The Generation Investment Management business has considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist, including the Chicago Climate Exchange.

Strong, the silent partner, is a man whose name often draws a blank on the Washington cocktail circuit. Even though a former Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the much hyped Rio Earth Summit) and Under-Secretary General of the United Nations in the days of an Oil-for-Food beleaguered Kofi Annan, the Canadian born Strong is little known in the United States.

That’s because he spends most of his time in China where he has been working to make the communist country the world’s next superpower. The nondescript Strong, nonetheless is the big cheese in the underworld of climate change and is one of the main architects of the failing Kyoto Protocol.--SNIP--long read

Lost in the recent headlines was Al Gore's appearance Monday in Denver at the annual meeting of the Council of Foundations, an association of the nation's philanthropic leaders.

"Philanthropic" my a$$; these creeps are engaged in a purely profit-making venture. They belong in jail for racketeering, tax-evasion, and fraud.
