EXCERPT When the list of donors to the Van Jones Green for All organization is examined, one name stands out the Open Society Institute of billionaire George Soros. The Green for All 2008 annual report is also notable for the pictures of the powerful people who associated with Jones, a known communist. They include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Al Gore. While the Open Society Institute was supporting Green for All in 2008, when Jones was running it, the
Soros-funded organization was also financially underwriting the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights when Jones was in charge of that group. The Open Society Institute gave the Ella Baker Center $151,800 in 2006 and $140,000 in 2007. Jones ran this group during the years 1996-2007. He then emerged as a senior fellow at the Soros-funded Center for American Progress.
Other funders of the Green for All group included Gores Alliance for Climate Protection, the Rockefeller family, Mens Warehouse, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the New World Foundation, the Schwab Charitable Fund, the Streisand Foundation, the Service Employees International Union, and the Tides Center and Foundation.
MoveOn.org is another Soros-funded organization, while Organizing for America is the official successor to the Obama for President campaign and continues to organize people to support the Obama agenda. In an article in Political Affairs, the CPUSA publication, Tyner says that Obama is not a socialist but is heading in a positive direction and the left and progressive forces are linked to Obamas destiny.
The interesting development is that todays progressive forces dont need funding from Moscow anymore. They have George Soros. The communists know this, even if most of the public does not. (Excerpt) Read more at worldtribune.com ...

STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE Obama came to town to deliver a speech at a charity dinner for "children in poverty" at the pricey, exclusive Mandarin Oriental Hotel----but also to pursue another, less high-minded, but more momentous, objective: to begin the process picking Hillary Clintons pocket.
The conference room belonged to George Soros. After talking to Soros for an hour about his 2008 bid for the White House, Obama walked down the hall and found assembled a dozen of the citys heaviest-hitting Democratic fund-raisers: investment banker *Hassan Nemazee, Wall Street power Blair Effron, private-equity hotshot Mark Gallogly, hedge-fund manager Orin Kramer. Most had been big-time John Kerry backers in 2004. Most had a connection to the Clintons. All were officially uncommitted for 2008.
* Charges of fraud, dated September 2, 2009 stated that "Hassan Nemazee to obtain a $100 million loan, represented to HSBC that he had $89 million in Treasury Notes, with a current market value of more than $125 million, in a specified brokerage firm account; submitted a supposed agreement from the brokerage firm with forged signatures, false addresses, and false telephone numbers; used a mail drop; and submitted fabricated brokerage statements."
Soros uses people. Jones may think he’s got full support...but I’m betting that Soros has money put into the right places to double or triple in nature...and then at the right moment...dump his support and those investments to find the next trend and double-up again.

Within 48 hours after President Obama issued the six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling, the George Soros-backed Brazilian oil company, Petrobras, contacted a large New Orleans company, Laborde Marine, which services the deep-water drilling market. The company was seeking to lease all its vessels. If the moratorium on deep-water drilling is not lifted, 33 semi-submersible rigs and/or drill ships affected will simply go to other countries where they will be well received, such as Brazil, Cliffe F. Laborde and J. Peter Laborde, Jr. wrote in a June 4 letter to their Louisiana Senators.
Could this be merely a happy coincidence for George Soros, the major financial backer of Obamas presidential campaign who also has $811 million invested in the Brazilian oil company, Petrobras? Wasnt it enough of a payback to Soros when the Obama Administration loaned up to $10 billion to Petrobras?
Soros, with his far left-wing organization, MoveOn, is called the Godfather of world socialism. But most relevant currently is that he has been an enthusiastic proponent of global warming and environmental liberalism. He has urged adoption of a global carbon tax. Could it be more than coincidence that his position is strikingly similar to what Obama called for in his June 14 Oval Office speech on the Gulf oil spill and future energy actions?

Do not forget...Meg Whitman thinks Van Jones is a “wonderful man”.
bookmark for the picture. I had forgotten about it.
Obama declares he IS the Savior of the Dem Party.
OBAMA'S MEMO TO THE DNC: This is the new Democrat campaign poster."
CAPTION: "Voters, Obama is baptized in the fire of faith."
" Alleluia, Obama's been saved. Thank you, Jesus. Amen."
Soros is VILE and EVIL....he’s no pure capitalist....he uses his money for EVIL ENDS!!
Yup. Could not agree more.
Idiot Liberals create a mass to target for criminals such as Soros. Easily led by the Soros type, and easily disappointed, but so damned stupid the Liberals will believe their lies, rather than the disappointment that confronts them at the hands of the Soros type liars.
Liberals, Leftists are like flies, irritating, and worthless.
He’s not a Capitalist.
He’s an International Banker, a Money Lender.
He lends money to capitalists and communists alike, he messes with their currencies. But he doesn’t build things, or provide services, or do anything of value in a free market economy.
He influences events to make his currency bets and other bets turn out right. He’s a global socialist, or glozi.
because he is looking for a big payday when the communist implement all the stuff he have invested his money in
Ok, I’ve been using glozi.
Should it be wozi? World Socialism.
Considering that he started his fortune by being an informant to the Nazis, it is fitting.
Soros is a sociopath.
Mmmmm.......I like "Wozi Blender".....(world socialist banker and money lender).
And stealing JEWISH people’s (he a fellow Jew) painting for the Nazis!
Nazi - national socialist
Wozi - world socialist
Something like that catches on, as terminology, philosophical adherents identified, etc etc, we can go a long way. Illuminati, Bilderbergers, etc. Not catchy. Wozi or Glozi whichever. Easy to say easy to remember reminds people of Nazi’s which people don’t like.
Soros is not a capitalist. A capitalist produces.
Communism is nothing but the centralized concentration of capital.
