If anyone still thinks that the American experiment of free markets and capitalism is still alive and well, think no more. Earlier this week, I raised the flag Obama’s Podesta wants to give the U.S oceans to the U.N. Revealed was his agenda:
That background could inform Podesta’s agenda in the White House, where he is to serve for one year as a “counselor” to the president. The New York Times reported he will focus on executive orders and so-called climate change issues along with Obamacare.
On Friday, the Obama- and Clinton-allied Center for American Progress finally revealed its long-sought corporate donor list after heavy pressure arising from CAP’s quasi-lobbying history. That scrutiny ratcheted up following the announcement that CAP founder John Podesta would be formally joining the Obama administration.
And so CAP handed over the list to the leftist Huffington Post. Incredibly, its 2013 donor list contains a myriad of massive corporations, including Apple Inc., AT&T, Bank of America, BMW of North America, Citigroup, Coca-Cola, Discovery, GE, Facebook, Google, Goldman Sachs, PepsiCo, PG&E, the Motion Picture Association of America, Samsung, Time Warner Inc., T-Mobile, Toyota, Visa, Walmart and Wells Fargo.
The revelation that huge corporations have been footing the bill for the CAP shatters the myth that major corporations are right-wing repositories.
What better a way to knock out future competitors than finance a socialist outfit like the Center for American Progress? Many in corporate America really don’t want free market capitalism.
