    Soros Files ^ | 4/17/12 | Tina Trent on
    Newly recently released tax documents reveal how billionaire “philanthropist” George Soros expanded his U.S.-based empire by using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, also known as the Obama stimulus. Soros and Obama worked hand-in-glove through the stimulus, which has been called the largest single partisan wealth transfer in American history. In 2010, tax records show that Soros, a convicted inside trader with extensive knowledge of the American financial system and government policies under Obama, deployed grantees from his Open Society Foundations1 to lobby for and acquire federal contracts for job training, green energy, and community redevelopment...

    Actual title is: Did Media Matters fund the marketing of Obamacare?: Progressive group under fire for questionable financial practices An organization that reportedly received a grant from the lobbying arm of the embattled Media Matters for America helped the White House to craft and market Obamacare, according to a recently released book. Yesterday, as part of an in-depth investigative series on Media Matters, the Daily Caller revealed that the progressive media organization gave away $125,000 of its donors’ money to a little-known marketing outfit that calls itself the Herndon Alliance. Based in Seattle, Herndon is said to advocate for universal...

    The Blaze ^ | February 25, 2011 | Meredith Jessup
    Last fall, leftist ideological groups of socialists and communists teamed up with American labor unions to march together for “One Nation.” Now, as labor leaders struggle to maintain a stranglehold on collective bargaining privileges in Wisconsin, the same groups are once again marching together under a banner claiming unions are the heart of the American dream.As we’ve reported, former White House green jobs czar Van Jones this week issued a rallying call for the progressive movement to “renew itself and become again a national force with which to be reckoned.” On Saturday, progressive groups and labor unions are reportedly planning...

    A recent State Department appointee is wife to the founder of a radical organization whose leaders include a socialist party founder, communists and a leader of the 1960's anti-American Weatherman terrorist organization. Barbara Shailor, appointed by the State Department as special representative for international labor affairs in May, also carries her own ties to some of the same radicals. Prior to her appointment, Shailor was director of the international department of the AFL-CIO, the country's largest union, and served as senior advisor to the union's President John Sweeney on foreign and international policy issues. She is also a member of...

    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, he’s 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...

    Policymaking: If the stimulus isn't working, perhaps it's because it was largely written by a collection of leftist interest groups called the Apollo Alliance that counts among its directors a co-founder of the Weather Underground.The Labor Department reported Friday that 42 states lost more jobs than they gained in August, and that 14 plus Washington, D.C., reported unemployment rates of 10% or more. Michigan's rate rose to 15.2%, highest in the nation. Nevada, represented by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is second with 13.2%. California, home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is tied for fourth with Oregon at 12.2%. Clearly,...

    Newsmax ^ | 9/14/2009 | David Horowitz
    In a lead story published this past weekend on Frontpagemag.com, conservative thinker and best-selling author David Horowitz likens President Barack Obama to the "Manchurian Candidate" — a tool of the far left fostering the implementation of its radical agenda. In the 1959 book "The Manchurian Candidate" by Richard Condon — which has been made into two movies — an American soldier is captured during the Korean War, taken to Manchuria in China, and brainwashed into being an unwitting assassin for the communists. He becomes part of a plot to kill a U.S. presidential nominee to aid the ascension of the...
  • NY's Tax-Funded Ex-Terrorist

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently credited Apollo with helping write the stimulus bill and getting it passed. Yet the stimulus' "green jobs" provisions funnel federal tax dollars to unions, green groups and community organizers -- that is, the organizations that make up Apollo. Jones was a fugitive from justice for 11 years. His own account at his Web site says: "As a leader of the Weather Underground, Jeff evaded an intense FBI manhunt for more than a decade. In 1981, they finally got him. Twenty special agents battered down the door of the Bronx apartment where he was living...

    VAN Jones resigned as White House green-jobs czar after the public got a look at his history of radical activism, including his time building the so-called Apollo Alliance -- a coalition of left-wing interest groups unified around the green-jobs concept. But another, even more radical Jones (not related) is leading Apollo's New York state activities.

    Direct ^ | December 6th | Apollo Alliance
    WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 — The Apollo Alliance, a national coalition of business, labor, environmental and community leaders, today proposed a comprehensive quick start, clean energy economic recovery strategy to immediately create or retain 650,000 direct green-collar jobs and an additional 1.3 million indirect jobs in communities across the country. The Alliance’s proposed Apollo Economic Recovery Act responds directly to President-elect Barack Obama’s call last week for a “big stimulus package” in January to “jolt” the economy and “lay the groundwork for long- term, sustained economic growth.” “With a new president and Congress taking office in January, we have a tremendous...

The Apollo Alliance has been an important factor in helping us develop and execute a strategy that makes great progress on these goals and in motivating the public to support them.”

    Is an imperfect climate bill (Waxman-Markey) better than no bill at all? Al Gore says yes.To bring environment supporters together, Gore will host a nationwide conference call on June 23 at 8 p.m. ET. The purpose, according to his Repower America e-mail sent to a selected audience, is “to build urgency around this bill and make sure it passes. We have to go to the grassroots – we have to continue building support in communities across the nation.”“As this climate legislation moves before the full Congress this summer, we have an opportunity unlike anything we’ve seen yet,” the e-mail concludes.Gore...

    Here is video from California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy holding a Town Hall Meeting in Bakersfield where he was asked why the Congress was allowing President Obama to create all the "Czars" he is creating. Just before he answered there were shouts from the audience of "He's a communist!" McCarthy answered the question by saying he did not believe Obama had the right to appoint these "Czars" AND give them powers that encroach on the "Checks and Balances" the Constitution requires. . . . .

    ACORN is also listed as a "partner" in the Apollo Alliance, along with SEIU, and Center for American Progress president John Podesta. The "green jobs" group has significant pull in Congress and helped to write the February stimulus bill. It is a major player in the debate over economy-crippling cap-and-trade legislation.The Apollo Alliance "is designed to bring together the elements of organized labor with the community organizers with the green groups, the environmental groups, and to access all of the big foundation money that's been supportive of those causes in the past," according to Phil Kerpen, director of policy for...

    Van Jones, the man appointed as "green jobs czar" to the White House, previously served on the board of an environmental activist group at which a founder of the Weather Underground terrorist organization is a top director. WND previously reported Jones was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader. He was appointed to serve as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. According to the White House blog, Jones' duties include helping to craft job-generating climate policy and to ensure equal opportunity in the administration's energy proposals. Jones,...

    Democratic presidential candidates, progressive political action committees, labor coalitions and filmmakers gathered with more than 3,000 activists in Washington this week for the fifth annual (My added link) Take Back America (TBA) Conference. Next week, activists will attend the first U.S. Social Forum (USSF), an offshoot of the World Social Forum, in Atlanta, Ga. Although the events might appear redundant, or even competitive, they reach different niches in the larger progressive movement -- and their outcomes will determine the degree of cohesion with which the Democratic Party's liberal wing enters the 2008 election season. The two events are not jointly...
