Is this more rightwing propaganda?

So the plot thickens.................and stomach sickens!!!!!

So . . . you think you know quite a bit about Obama and his band of thieves. You don't know anything yet. Read on all of this as it all comes together in the last part........ a must read.

This is an interesting story put together from various articles and TV shows by the British Times paper. It shows what Obama and his friends are really all about. It's not hope and change, it is money.

I warn you, the first part is a little boring, but stick with it. The second part connects all the dots for you (it will open your eyes). The end explains how Obama and all his cronies will end up as multi-billionaires. (It's definitely worth the read. You will not be

A small bank in Chicago called SHOREBANK almost went bankrupt during the recession. The bank made a profit on its foreign micro-loans (see below) but had lost money in sub-prime mortgages in the US. It was facing likely closure by federal regulators. However, because the bank's executives were well connected with members of the Obama Administration, a private rescue bailout was arranged. The bank's employees had donated money to Obama's Senate campaign. In other words, ShoreBank was too politically connected to be allowed to go under.

ShoreBank survived and invested in many "green" businesses such as solar panel manufacturing. In fact, the bank was mentioned in one of Obama's speeches during his election campaign because it subjected new business borrowers to eco-litmus tests.

Prior to becoming President, Obama sat on the board of the JOYCE FOUNDATION, a liberal charity. This foundation was originally established by Joyce Kean's family which had accumulated
millions of dollars in the lumber industry. It mostly gave funds to
hospitals but after her death in 1972, the foundation was taken over by
radical environmentalists and social justice extremists.

This JOYCE FOUNDATION, which is rumored to have assets of 8 billion dollars, has now set up and funded, with a few partners,
something called the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE, known as CXX. It will be the exchange (like the Chicago Grain Futures Market for agriculture) where Environmental Carbon Credits are traded.

Under Obama's new bill, businesses in the future will be assessed a tax on how much CO2 they produce (their Carbon Footprint) or in other words how much they add to global warming. If a company produces less CO2 than their allotted measured limit, they earn a Carbon Credit. This Carbon Credit can be traded on the CXX exchange. Another company, which has gone over their CO2 limit, can buy the Credit and "reduce" their footprint and tax liability. It will be like trading shares on Wall Street.

Well, it was the same JOYCE FOUNDATION, along with some other private partners and Wall Street firms that funded the bailout of ShoreBank. The foundation is now one of the major shareholders. The bank has now been designated to be the "banking arm" of the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE (CXX). In addition, Goldman Sachs has been contracted to run the investment trading floor of the exchange.

So far so good; now the INTERESTING parts.

One ShoreBank co-founder, named Jan Piercy, was a Wellesley College roommate of Hillary Clinton. Hillary and Bill Clinton have long supported the bank and are small investors.

Another co-founder of Shorebank, named Mary Houghton, was a friend of Obama's late mother. Obama's mother worked on foreign MICRO-LOANS for the Ford Foundation. She worked for the foundation
with a guy called Geithner. Yes, you guessed it. This man was the father of Tim Geithner, our present Treasury Secretary, who failed to pay all his taxes for two years.

Another founder of ShoreBank was Ronald Grzywinski, a cohort and close friend of Jimmy Carter.

The former ShoreBank Vice Chairman was a man called Bob Nash. He was the deputy campaign manager of Hillary Clinton's presidential bid. He also sat on the board of the Chicago Law School with Obama and Bill Ayers, the former terrorist . Nash was also a member of Obama's White House transition team.

(To jog your memories, Bill Ayers is a Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He founded the Weather Underground, a radical
revolutionary group that bombed buildings in the 60s and 70s. He had no remorse for those who were killed, escaped jail on a technicality, and is still an admitted Marxist).

When Obama sat on the board of the JOYCE FOUNDATION, he "funneled" thousands of charity dollars to a guy named John Ayers, who runs a dubious education fund. Yes, you guessed it. The
brother of Bill Ayers, the terrorist.

Howard Stanback is a board member of Shorebank. He is a former board chairman of the Woods Foundation. Obama and Bill Ayers, the terrorist, also sat on the board of the Woods Foundation. Stanback was formerly employed by New Kenwood Inc. a real estate development company co-owned by Tony Rezko.

(You will remember that Tony Rezko was the guy who gave Obama an amazing sweet deal on his new house. Years prior to this, the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland had represented Rezko's company and helped him get more than 43 million dollars in government funding. Guess who worked as a lawyer at the firm at the time. Yes, Barack Obama.

Adele Simmons, the Director of ShoreBank, is a close friend of Valerie Jarrett, a White House senior advisor to Obama. Simmons and Jarrett also sit on the board of a dubious Chicago Civic Organization.

Van Jones sits on the board of ShoreBank and is one the marketing directors for "green" projects. He also holds a senior advisor position for black studies at Princeton University. You will remember that Mr. Van Jones was appointed by Obama in 2009 to be a Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House. He was forced to resign over past political activities, including the fact that he is a Marxist.

Al Gore was one of the smaller partners to originally help fund the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE. He also founded a company called Generation Investment Management (GIM) and registered it in London, England. GIM has close links to the UK-based Climate Exchange PLC, a holding company listed on the London Stock Exchange. This company trades Carbon Credits in Europe (just like CXX will do here) and its floor is run by Goldman Sachs.

Along with Gore, the other co-founder of GIM is Hank Paulson, the former US Treasury Secretary and former CEO of Goldman Sachs. His wife, Wendy, graduated from and is presently a Trustee of Wellesley College. Yes, the same college that Hillary Clinton and Jan Piercy, a co-founder of Shorebank attended. (They are all friends).

Interesting? And now the closing...

Because many studies have been exposed as scientific nonsense, people are slowly realizing that man-made global warming is nothing more than a money-generating hoax. As a result, Obama is working feverishly to win the race. He aims to push a Cap-and-Trade Carbon Tax Bill through Congress and into law.

Obama knows he must get this passed before he loses his majority in Congress in the November elections. Apart from Climate Change he will "sell" this bill to the public as generating tax revenue to reduce our debt. But, it will also make it impossible for US companies to compete in world markets and drastically increase unemployment. In addition, energy prices (home utility rates) will sky rocket.

But, here's the KICKER (THE MONEY TRAIL).

If the bill passes, it is estimated that over 10 TRILLION dollars each year will be traded on the CXX exchange. At a commission rate of only 4 percent, the exchange would earn close to 400 billion dollars to split between its owners, all Obama cronies. At a 2 percent rate,
Goldman Sachs would also rake in 200 billion dollars each year.

But don't forget SHOREBANK. With 10 trillion dollars flowing though its accounts, the bank will earn close to 40 billion dollars in interest each year for its owners (more Obama cronies), without even breaking a sweat.

It is estimated Al Gore alone will probably rake in 15 billion dollars just in the first year. Of course, Obama's "commissions" will be held in trust for him at the Joyce Foundation. They are estimated to be over 8 billion dollars by the time he leaves office in 2013, if the bill
passes this year. Of course, these commissions will continue to be
paid for the rest of his life.

Some financial experts think this will be the
largest "scam" or"legal heist" in world history. Obama's cronies make
the Mafia look like rank amateurs. They will make Bernie Madoff's
fraud look like penny ante stuff.

Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.

Uh... yes that looks like propaganda to me. A nutty diatribe.

I'd be interested in real references to real articles in The Times of London, but not really interested in reading a big copy/paste passed around the internet.

None of this is surprising, I didnt have time to verify all the points, but in politics nothing is surprising.

Interestingly the Joyce foundation has paid for studies of gun violence, they hand pick facts and statistics for use by VPC, Brady Center, Southern Poverty Law Center, etc... Many times their 'studies' have been completely debunked. While it is an organizations right to fund what studies they want, it concerns me to see so many politician aligned with some of these organizations.

People will debate back and forth about Obama's agenda... Unless he comes forward we'll never know. All we can do is look at ties and PAC money contributions to get an idea of who supports him. I am not on the "he's a Muslim, fascist, Kenyan, horseman of the apocalypse" wagon, but still unsure of the true colors.

Recently the IMF (financial strong arm of the UN) recommended the US cut social security benefits to cover us debt obligation. Social Security alone is an overwhelmingly confusing topic, but the article was not talking about the problems SS has, but instead that the US should curtail a certain percentage of benefits and move those moneys (obligation to it's citizens) into accounts to pay debt.

This should mean little as it was a recommendation, and recommendations from an international bank mafia do not dictate US. policy. I am concerned though because Geithner and Bernanke represent the US on the IMF board, and the US has 16% of voting power in the IMF. Why would our country shirk debt obligations to it's citizens to pay foreign banks? Is it because we still have foriegn banks dictating United State Federal Reserve policy? Does the CEO of Credit Suisse have to be concerned about his social security payments being there?

Bush is gone, we were told there was a new sheriff in town, so why does our new sheriff have all the same deputies and polices?

Two observations:
• This rant is from "Chuck's Blog," some guy's personal soapbox. Read some of his "political" posts. They're wild-eyed conspiracy shit. Chuck's Blog Political
• He mentions the "British Times" newspaper as a source for his claims. There's a "London Times," but I can find NO "British Times." Maybe it exists and I didn't dig deep enough. Maybe he made it up.

Credibility? Not that I can see from a very surface examination.

That is just too great!

Here's some proof from a reputable source...i know-all you lefties don't consider Natl. Review credible but please dispute the facts instead of slandering Michelle Malkin. I renominate Obama as D-bag of the year.

Mr. C - "National Review" was a credible source of information when Buckley was alive. These days? Not so much. Recall, if you dare, that they were early boosters of Palin. And Malkin? She has zero credibility. Sorry.

Hey Rwhyman - where was all this concern while Bush/Cheney were enriching themselves by waging a war that many would consider un-necessary?

I'll bet you were blue in the face then, weren't ya?
