Socialist Economic Saboteurs Exposed

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

Couldn’t resist.

The Blaze has posted an amazing audio of an address by former SEIU senior official Stephen Lerner at last weekend’s Left Forum at Pace University in New York City.

Lerner lays out a detailed plan to create economic chaos in America by attacking key banks.

Listen as co-panelist Abby Scher invokes the infamous Cloward-Piven Strategy, developed in the 1960s to bring socialism to America by deliberately overloading and crashing state welfare systems.

Stephen Lerner is serious. He really wants to bring American capitalism crashing down.

Democratic Socialists of America, the U.S.’s largest Marxist organization have their fingerprints all over this scheme.

D.S.A. organizes Left Forum – which used to be called the Socialist Scholars Conference. That’s right, the same socialist conferences that D.S.A.’s old comrade Barack Obama used to attend while he was studying at Columbia University in the early 1980s.

SEIU, which employed Lerner for many years is completely dominated by D.S.A.

Cloward-Piven Strategy formulator Frances Fox Piven is a prominent D.S.A. member as was her late husband and co-conspirator Richard Cloward.

The particular panel Stephen Lerner addressed was entitled Building Solidarity through Community Power: Community-Labor Coalitions.

Other panelists included:

  • Abby Scher, Brooklyn College/CUNY- an activist with Political Research Associates, “researching the right for progressive changemakers,” which was founded by D.S.A. member Jean Hardisty.
  • John Atlas, National Housing Institute and a one time D.S.A. activist.

Frances Fox Piven spoke at left Forum 2011 as well. Her panel was entitled Excluded Workers: Building a Labor Movement for the Twenty-First Century.

Fox Piven’s co-panelists included:

Talk about revolutionary incest!

When are the Republicans going to convene Congressional hearings into Democratic Socialists of America, Left Forum and the rest of the Marxist left? I’ll happily testify, as would many of my fellow researchers. Wasn’t the recent D.S.A. organized chaos in Wisconsin enough to get the G.O.P. hierarchy up off its collective fat lazy ass?

Will these people be allowed to crash what’s left of the U.S. economy, before the G.O.P. decides to take these self proclaimed saboteurs seriously?

Why should exposing these subversives be left to Glenn Beck and “basement bloggers”?

Oh. My. George. Soros on Europe’s Worsening Banking Crisis & the Most Evil Plan Yet

By: Arlen Williams & Tallulah Starr
Gulag Bound

What am I thinking? This is the “Mouth of Sauron,” from “The Lord of the Rings.”

Yet another oracle from the Mouth of Soros is issued, as the Master of Disaster (known to himself, as “God”) explains what is right and how to wrong it. This time, it is about Europe.

There, he depicts the relatively stronger nations of that financially incontinent subcontinent, e.g., Spain and especially Germany, as the evil forces of nationalism and perhaps even, perish his thought as he hints: national sovereignty! Ye gads! I mean, ye György!

Whenever we have an Edict of Soros, may the Schwartz be with him, one thinks we can generally count on three things; oops, make that’s three and a half:

1. At least one large-scale crisis is impending or worsening.
2. He is actively taking part in the worsening of it, usually intentionally.
3. He and those who gave him the money with which he plays, seek to use that crisis, to further the cause of bringing the world together as one big apple pie, to control, exploit and devour.
(3.a. They are personally making even more money and gaining more power, by means of this crisis.)

In Soros’ March 21st missive, “How Germany can avoid a two-speed Europe,” published in the Financial Times and sent by email to his subscribers, European nations are depicted in classic, Marxist, have and have not fashion. The aforementioned Germany and Spain are among the haves and those nations which are in debt to their banks, the have nots. But, deceit being most convincingly practiced as the art of half-truth, Soros correctly points out that they are all in trouble. And while these nations are in trouble due to their interdependency, in true lying fashion, Soros portrays the problem being the mere fact that these nations continue to be nations at all, acting in at least a vestige of (healthy and manageable) national interest.

His solution of course, is for the haves to make it easy on the have nots, by means of a unified bailout structure over all concerned, in a beast called the “European Financial Stability Facility.” (But Soros uses lower case, allowing it to slip through the conscious more easily.) You can read about this EFSF being “official” already, as the policy of NWO-boy, Geithner and America’s Obamunist saboteurs. It was featured big-time by Matt Drudge last December and we spelled it out in Gulag Bound, at the time.

Remember that phrase. It may go down in the history of hypocrisy, in its Hall of Infamy. When you see “European Financial Stability Facility,” think of the following. Note what Congress got the Federal Reserve to admit recently, about the American Mortgage Meltdown. (Read about that here, in Financial Times; perhaps it takes a foreign venue to spell it out, instead of knuckling under.)

Recall as you read that FT piece, that our financial institutions were dealt their worst blow when they were already staggering, in September 2008, due in large part to European banks demanding their mortgage derivatives payments. Understand that America, by means of Congress and the mockingly labeled “Federal Reserve,” then gave them hundreds of billions of dollars we hardly have, thus backed by TARP. Remember also, that this “Federal Reserve” is essentially the kind of European dominated structure of the financial bleeding and manipulation of America that presidents such as Jackson and Lincoln bitterly fought.

The proposed “European Financial Stability Facility,” should therefore cause us to ask, “How will you rob America of any remnant of its wealth, now? How will you drive up our debt any further and drive the final nails into America’s coffin?” And just to be academic, “Will Congress get to vote on involvement in this European Financial Stability Facility?”

This iniquitous EFSF scheme also goes back to the beginnings of the 2008 Meltdown. One can read further about the mega-scam in The Daily Bail, including their reference to WikiLeaks documents:

For the second imperative, [Bank of England Governor Mervyn] King suggested that the U.S., UK, Switzerland, and perhaps Japan might form a temporary new group to jointly develop an effort to bring together sources of capital to recapitalize all major banks.

We must also remember the essential objective of György’s warfare: to destroy America for the advancement of his very un-Open Society of globalist collectivism and technocracy, controlled by financial mega-criminals, for which he is both front man and bag man.

Make no mistake, the European Financial Stability Facility is a criminally led megabank, for encroaching global empire, fed through the burgeoning, Ponzi-like insolvency bubble of the International Monetary Fund.

My take for a good outcome: How can Spain and Germany divorce from and begin to dismantle the European Union? It could begin either before or after the very imminent and inevitable, international collapse of the world’s corrupt financial systems (and with it, the economies of the world, especially, America). How can they, the United Kingdom — and America and all nations begin to truly reformulate and police our nations’ banking systems and reestablish the wealth of free nations for posterity? (Hint: Adam Smith did not write The Wealth of the Global State, nor The Wealth of Transnational Mega-Corporations, nor The Wealth of Financiers.)

My request: Pray for that dismantling and a return to the only realistic way for the world to get along with a shred of decency: benign, post-Babel nationalism. There is no healthy internationalism without nationalism, despite what any postmodernist can imagine. The nations function when we are sovereign nations and essentially practice 1:1 diplomacy and commerce with each of the other nations.

But, if you wish to read about what happens when globally collectivist and technocratic governance, and global finance do reign supreme, go to the Book of Revelation — and rest assured it will not be allowed to reign for long.

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz picks up the baton.

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

Rush Limbaugh spent the second hour of his program today talking about this. To his credit.

Utah Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz steps up to the plate, swings, and…

Fox News not expected to report it any time soon… busy with Bill Maher’s t’what story and sex offender Lawrence Taylor…

***

From The BLAZE:

The Blaze has obtained an exclusive letter sent from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding shocking video uncovered by The Blaze on Tuesday.

(Watch the original video.)

In the letter, Chaffetz references video, posted yesterday on this site, showing a one-time SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, outlining a plan to collapse the American economy — including crashing the stock market — so that unions can become more powerful. The sinister plan is set to take place in May and includes mass homeowner mortgage strikes.

(Read our report on Stephen Lerner.)

Chaffetz tells Holder “the escalation of Mr. Lerner’s threats would clearly constitute domestic terrorism and pose substantial harm to the American people and the economy.“ He goes on to request Holder investigate ”Mr. Lerner’s terrorist plans and notify me how the Department of Justice plans to respond to these threats.”

The letter, sent Wednesday, was also distributed to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House committee on Oversight & Government Reform, and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking minority member.

You can read the letter below:

March 23, 2011

The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.

Attorney General

U.S. Department of Justice

950 Pennsylvania Ave., NW

Washington, DC 20530-0001

Dear Attorney General Holder:

Recent media reports suggest that the former director of the Service Employees International Union’s (“SEIU”) banking and finance campaign has threatened to seriously endanger the welfare of the United States. In a forum at Pace University earlier this month, Stephen Lerner, the former SEIU official, revealed a “secret plan” to “cause a new financial crisis . . . destroy J.P. Morgan . . . and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power” by using “civil disobedience” to create “the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.”[1]

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”[2] The escalation of Mr. Lerner’s threats would clearly constitute domestic terrorism and pose substantial harm to the American people and the economy. I am therefore requesting that you investigate Mr. Lerner’s terrorist plans and notify me how the Department of Justice plans to respond to these threats.

The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is the principal oversight committee of the House of Representatives and may at “any time” investigate “any matter” as set forth in House Rule X. An attachment to this letter provides additional information about responding to the Committee’s request.

If you have any questions regarding this request, please do not hesitate to contact [redacted]. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
_______________________

Fox News – again deciding what they will NOT report.

By: Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

“At first, I was a little nervous. Who do you call? The Department of Justice? The Treasury? The White House? We couldn’t call any of them. I felt alone.”

On his radio show today, what Glenn Beck did NOT mention was the uncomfortable fact that Fox News did not report on the plot he revealed yesterday.

When Glenn had all the information about the clandestine meeting at Pace University in which former SEIU thug Steve Lerner laid out plans to topple America’s banking system, he knew he stood alone. But he had to be hoping the news operations — the producers of the Barbie and Ken brain pilot shows at Fox News – would grab the ball and run with it, even if no other news outlet would. A reasonable expectation, right?

Wrong.

As we’ve sadly and disappointedly come to expect from Fox News, Glenn Beck continues to stand alone. One would think that his home network — of ALL the TV news operations out there — would have run with the exclusive story he broke wide open yesterday. And that they’d have played it high up in the first segment.

We waited… nothing. (But we did get a “stimulating” discussion on the panel about light bulbs…)

Nope. Nothing on last night’s Special Report with Bret Baier, the show that immediately follows Beck’s. (It’s not like they didn’t have all day to put it in the line-up — Glenn broke the news on his radio show yesterday morning.) Nothing with Shemp (I know it’s Shep…). O’Really didn’t cover it. Hannity (stay within the lines) didn’t cover it. Greta didn’t cover it (but wait a beat… John McCain coming up next!)

I checked the Fox News websites just now — not a word about it. Proof? Take a look at today’s Fox News websites — (roll your cursor over the bottom to pause slideshow – [visit Andrea’s site to see this]). See any mention at all??? Just as shocking — nothing at Fox BUSINESS News’ site, for the love of Mike. The Business Channel doesn’t cover the biggest economic story this year? Are these people brain dead? Or is this by design? Fox News, once again, deciding what you will know. “We decide…”

The New York Times today runs a story about Glenn (see the post beneath this one) and his future at Fox, but NOT A WORD about the plot to destabilize our economy through economic terrorism against our banking system. Is it a wonder THEIR ratings are dropping? No one believes them anymore.

And anyone who believes that Fox News is the answer to the lamestream media is being duped. And mislead. And if I’m wrong, please bring it to my attention. I’d be delighted to issue a correction and set the record straight.

***

Also, why did Drudge have the story up on his site for only about five minutes before it was taken down?

It wasn’t played very high up on the page… in fact, it was buried down several headlines in the middle column. NOT where one would have expected it to be. I was looking for red letters above the fold.

***

Glenn’s reporting that Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz is launching an investigation into the Leftist Plot to use economic terrorism to bring down our banking system.

More details to come…

An Open Letter to All Locksmiths

By: T F Stern
T F Stern’s Rantings

An Open Letter to all locksmiths regarding Proposed Texas Legislation HB2577, SB1400 and HB1867.

I read the introductory line regarding proposed legislation on the GHLA website and have to wonder why, “It is important that we work cooperatively to get our industry omnibus bill passed without too many changes.” For all practical purposes SB1400 and HB1867 make no significant changes to the licensing of locksmiths and act only as a continuation of what is already on the books; unless you wish to spotlight the addition of a single licensed locksmith to the 9 member board of DPS/PSB.

HB2577 is a round about way of making it a crime for anyone other than a licensed locksmith to own or produce specialty tools of our trade when used with criminal intent. I’d say this was really dumb since criminal intent must be established in concert with some other crime committed and would already be covered under criminal law. What HB2577 does is establish yet another violation of civil rights by implying criminal intent by virtue of ownership or production of specialty tools associated with the locksmith industry, as if (licensed) locksmiths had exclusive proprietary right to these items.

I’ve written many articles regarding the licensing of locksmiths and the associated loss of God-given rights through well meaning legislative efforts instigated by and through ALOA, TLA and GHLA. What many of my fellow locksmiths fail to recognize is the fine line between membership requirements in those fine organizations and the necessary separation of thought and action when it comes to defining laws which restrict any individual’s movement within the free market system.

“THE CONSCIENCE OF THE OSLO ACCORDS IS CRUMBLING” – SAYS MOSHE FEIGLIN

By: Fern Sidman

A palpable excitement filled the air as over 1000 people gathered on Monday evening, March 21st at the Terrace On The Park catering hall in New York to attend the 9th annual gala dinner for the Manhigut Yehudit (Jewish Leadership) movement. This year’s dinner was dedicated to the incredible life and enduring legacy of Herbert Zweibon, ZT”L, the beloved founder and chairman of Americans For A Safe Israel (AFSI) who passed away on Tu B’Shevat, January 19, 2011, as special tributes were paid him. Considered a shining paradigm of pro-Israel activism in America, Mr. Zweibon was remembered in the fondest of terms by the Manhigut Yehudit leadership.

“My first memory of Herb Zweibon was when I took a year off to volunteer my time to AFSI,” said Rob Muchnick, US Director of Manhigut Yehudit. “We are proud to say that we continue to work with AFSI and will continue our important work together in the future. Herb’s fighting spirit was infectious and his entire being resonated with an overwhelming love of Israel and the Jewish people,” he added.

Helen Freedman, executive director of AFSI said, “I was very touched and pleased by the fact that Manhigut Yehudit saw fit to honor our beloved Herb Zweibon, z”l at their annual dinner. Since the goals of Jewish leadership and the preservation of a whole Israel are shared by both AFSI and Manhigut Yehudit, it was very appropriate that AFSI’s Chairman should be honored at this occasion. The large turnout of AFSI members was a tribute both to Herb and to the ideology of Manhigut Yehudit.”

The recent barbaric murders of five members of the Fogel family in the settlement of Itamar on March 11th took center stage amongst dinner attendees and organizers. “Tonight we not only pay tribute to the extraordinary contributions to Jewish activism made by Herbert Zweibon, but we recall with profound sorrow the horrific and tragic massacre of the Fogel family,” intoned Shmuel Sackett, international director of Manhigut Yehudit.

“There are revolutions underway in Egypt, Libya and the entire Arab world, but what about Israel?,” declared Mr. Sackett. Recalling that he and Manhigut Yehudit party chairman Moshe Feiglin led hundreds of thousands of Israelis in protests across the nation, he ruefully observed, “they did not help.” Adding that, “Israelis believe they live in a democracy in contrast to the people of Egypt who knew they didn’t live in a democracy. Israelis still believe in the democratic process and thus, we are here talking about positive change in the Israeli government. We are building a new leadership that will be committed to a complete and undivided land of Israel living to serve the one and only G-d of Israel,” he said.

“The conscience of Oslo is crumbling before our very eyes,” declared keynote speaker Moshe Feiglin, founder and co-president of Manhigut Yehudit. Regarded by many as the leading spokesman for the Land of Israel sector, Mr. Feiglin founded the Zo Artzeinu (This is Our Land) grassroots movement in 1994 which stood in vehement opposition to the Oslo Agreements and later established the Manhigut Yehudit (Jewish Leadership) organization, which has since joined the Likud with the goal of “influencing from within.” Manhigut Yehudit is credited with giving the Likud, and especially its list of knesset members, a more nationalist slant than it would have had otherwise.

“After attending the funeral of the Fogel family, I realized that a dramatic shift in Israeli society was taking place,” intoned Mr. Feiglin. “When Galei Tzahal (Israeli Army Radio) broadcast the entire funeral live, I took note of the fact that this station is the second largest radio station in the country, and definitely not a right wing one, felt the need to report this event that rocked the entire nation. That means something as does the left wing journalist from the Ma’ariv newspaper who said after the slayings of the Fogels that he is “scared and frustrated that there will be no peace” and that he wants to “hide under the dress of Daniella Weiss” (a leading figure in the settlement movement).

Delivering an optimistic prognostication of his future on the Israeli political scene, Mr. Feiglin declared, “The Oslo Accords had in the past engulfed the nation and caused a disconnect from reality, but now we have witnessed the fact that people are coming to terms with the abysmal failure of Oslo. It was then that I understood, that with the help of G-d, I am going to be the next prime minister of Israel and it’s going to be sooner than ever before.”

Addressing the recent ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Mr. Feiglin said, “Arab dictators are moving aside. Israelis have now come to the stark realization that they never had peace with Egypt when they saw Egyptian government opposition forces holding pictures of Mubarak with the Star of David scrawled over his face.” Mr. Feiglin promised a change in Jewish leadership in Israel by carving out a new direction for Israeli youth. “For these young people, Oslo is the only language that they know. They have no concept of a true Jewish state but we are going to offer them an alternative that includes an authentic Jewish identity.”

He concluded by vowing, “When I become prime minister of Israel, no Arab will ever take a knife and slaughter a Jewish child.”

“Moshe Feiglin is a man who understands that the eternal possession of the Jewish people is a united and not divided state of Israel,” declared Pastor James David Manning of the ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem. A staunch pro-Israel advocate and ardent Christian Zionist, Pastor Manning recounted his biblical obligations to the Jewish people and the land of Israel by saying, “In the book of Genesis, chapter 12, G-d spoke to Abraham and said “whoever blesses the Jewish people shall be blessed and whoever curses the Jewish people shall be cursed.”

Recalling his youthful introduction to the “love of Zion” and the Jewish nation, Pastor Manning declared, “As a young man, I vividly remember the very clear, very resolute and very powerful words of Rabbi Meir Kahane. I was truly encouraged by his honesty and wisdom and the work that he accomplished in his life. I was so greatly impressed by his great love for G-d’s word.”

Fukushima nuclear emergency – media hype vs. real concerns

By: RBT
Ron The Cop

I’ve been sharing emails with some friends re the tragedy of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami [See full text here]. It’s been apparent that the talking heads of the MSM including FOX NEWS have been hyping/sensationalizing the Fukushima nuclear event either intentionally or through ignorance. It is clear that many commentators/anchors have very little understanding of the inner workings and engineering of a working nuclear power plant. There is a constant drumbeat if this event will surpass the tragedy that occurred in Chernobyl.

To be sure the Fukushima event is a very serious event. In the end this event will not be about the integrity of the nuclear reactor cores after all they survived a earthquake of magnitude 9 and the resultant tsunami but about backup secondary power to continue circulating the fluid through the reactor core. The tsunami took out the backup generators not unlike the surge water took out the backup generators for the pumps for dikes in New Orleans in Katrina. This was a foreseeable event. The newer generation nuclear power plants have water gravity feeds, but the US also has many older reactors nearing their useful life of similar designs to Fukushima.

More importantly the containment and security of the spent fuel rods stored on site is the real story because of the inability of reaching a political consensus to permanently store these nuclear wastes. If spent fuel rods in the meantime are to be stored on site then more must be required to do this safely. We have many sites in the US with many reactor cores of spent fuel rods stored on site that pose many of the same problems that have now come to light in the Fukushima event.
