New York Schools features Van Jones anti-cop lesson plan

Do you wonder where these marchers against the Police have come from? They are our own school based indoctrinated children who are being taught to hate cops. Let me take you back in my way back machine and drag out an old post. Yes, our man Van Jones is giving it to us under the guise of Common Core. Posted December, 2010.

Radical Apollo Alliance Named to Obama’s Climate Task Force

Recently I posted Obama signs new lawless Executive Order regarding Climate change. Now we find out more about who and why now the move. Tides foundation, Apollo Alliance funded by George Soros are among those who have their nasty fingers behind this. But first, a few seconds from our “Constitutional” professor regarding our founding document. Just remind us what is ahead of us.

The co-founder of the Apollo Alliance and supporter of wealth redistribution was named this week to Obama’s Climate Task Force. The Bell News reported:

Even while Climate Scientists are backing off from the dire predictions on Global Warming, President Obama has decided to double down on the junk science with an Executive Order.

…… So expect more Federal Land seizures in the near future), one of the most disturbing realizations to come from this latest Executive Order is that one of the “Advisers” on the President’s Task Force is a Co-Founder of the Communist Affiliated Apollo Alliance, Co-Architect of the President’s current “Green” economic plan and is a known supporter of Wealth Redistribution.  That man is Governor of Washington State Jay Inslee.

According to Key Wiki, Jay Inslee Co-Founded the Apollo Alliance (Funded by the Tides Foundation who is Funded by George Soros and is now apart of the Blue Green Alliance) which housed a number of radical leftists such as the former Green Jobs Czar, and self described Communist, Van Jones as well as  a former founder of the Communist Terrorist group The Weather Underground, Jeff Jones.

Bell News:

In 2007, then Congressman Jay Inslee Co-Authored a book with Apollo Alliance Executive Director and Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, Bracken Hendricks, titled Apollo’s Fire.   Apollo’s Fire is the blue print (Which President Obama has been following to the letter) on how to fundamentally transform the United States into a “Clean Energy Economy” in order to save the world from the effects of Global Warming.  This plan is known as The New Apollo Project.

On page 114 at the bottom of the 2nd to last paragraph in Apollo’s Fire, Mr. Inslee and Mr. Hendricks admit (by quoting fellow Apollo Alliance Co-founder Joel Rogers) that their New Apollo Project is not just about creating a Clean Energy Economy, but about redistributing the wealth:

“A new Apollo Project for energy is appealing because it is part of a class of investments that pay for themselves—it is not merely redistribution of wealth—and it makes our whole country better off.”

More from Bell News:

From pushing the Smart Grid, to the seizure of GM through the bailout, President Obama has been following The New Apollo Project as it is laid out in Apollo’s Fire to the letter.  Which brings up the question.  Why now, in his 2nd Term, has the President suddenly decided to create this new Climate Task Force, especially since he has been executing the Apollo plan so well on his own?

The only answers I can come up with is that the President created this Task Force to draw attention away from the new directives he has given Federal agencies in the Executive Order.  Also as he increases the speed of the “Fundamental Transformation” which is called for in The New Apollo Project before his 2nd term runs out, and people begin to complain about losing their freedoms and property in the name of saving the planet, he will have someone to point to and blame it on.  Instead of taking the heat and admitting that he is acting on a plan created by a George Soros Foundation he will just point to the Task Force and say, “We Democratically voted on it”.

Obama’s ShoreBank manager lose $5 Million in Green car venture

This is a story that is definitely in the weeds. But when I picked up a story with the headline “ShoreBank” it brought back oh so many memories of numerous posts. It was a slush bank for Acorn, and all of the worst of  the cronies of Obama. The cast of characters include the Clinton’s, Jarrett, Van Jones, Jan Schakowsky and felon hubby and on and on.

…but because of the Clintons, the Obamas, the Moseley Brauns of the world, and ShoreBank’s sentimental value because it supported their community organizing efforts, it should be saved. No word yet from convicted felon Robert Creamer on this one, or his wife Jan Schakowsky. That is right. Jan’s hubby is in the clinker.

 …evidence that may explain the intense interest of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) in bailing out ShoreBank, the “community development” bank that has received extraordinary assistance from her and several other “friends in high places.”

 None of them were saying that about the bank in Wisconsin that kept family-owned farms afloat. Wonder how those banks’ investors feel about the Obama Administration’s lack of interest in them.” From:American Spectator

The New York Times confirms that Rep. Schakowsky played a leading role in the ShoreBank bailout. Yet ShoreBank is not based in Rep. Schakowsky’s congressional district, and she did not help the Bank of Lincolnwood–which is in her district, and failed in 2009–or Park National Bank, which was also active in community development in Chicago until it was closed by federal regulators last year.

Now, court documents that have been obtained reveal that ShoreBank was one of several banksthat Rep. Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, used in the check kiting scheme for which he was convicted and sentenced to federal prison in 2006.

When another bank, Cole Taylor Bank, refused to continue honoring his checks, Creamer turned to ShoreBank for help. ShoreBank evidently provided him with extra time to find over $1.4 million to cover the overdrafts.

But I digressed. Here is the story:

Crain’s) — The state agency managing the College Illinois prepaid tuition program expects to lose more than half its $10 million investment in luxury hybrid-car startup Fisker Automotive.

ShoreBank Crony Manages to Lose $5 Million for ISAC in Green Car Venture

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission, which runs the $1.1 billion fund backing the college savings plan used by more than 30,000 Illinois families, disclosed the bad news at its Sept. 14 meeting, spokesman John Samuels said.

ISAC, which embarked on an unconventional and controversial investment strategy featuring private-equity and hedge funds under previous Executive Director Andrew Davis, famously lost nearly $13 million it invested in Chicago-based urban lender ShoreBank when that bank failed in August 2010. A few months after the ShoreBank failure, ISAC plowed $10 million into a private-equity venture backing Fisker, a federally subsidized startup firm making the luxury hybrid Karma, which since has endured numerous mechanical problems.

Earlier psot: Jarrett, Acorn, Van Jones and their Shorebank involvement back in the news

This story brought back a memory of a post of May 10 2010. At the time, I was hot on the trail of Obama’s Kenyan connections and his Muslim cousin Odinga running for President. So here is a taste.

In 2006, before his Presidential race, then-Sen. Barack Obama visited his father’s homeland of Kenya, and around the same times ShoreBank donated $1 million to that country to assist in micro-loan programs there. At the time, Obama officials said it was a coincidence that ShoreBank made the contribution to Kenya. Why I am just laughing myself silly!

…discussions to bail out the bank, which has close ties to both senior members of the Obama Administration, as well as the Clinton family, went deep into the weekend as Chicago politicians scrambled to save the bank.

Focus on the White House’s role is due in large part to the ties senior staffers there have to the investors and management of the bank, which started out as a community bank, and lately has been deeply involved in “micro-financing” and “green” loans.

Senior White House aide Valerie Jarrett appears to be the central figure in the Financial Services’ interest, according to Republican staffers with ties to the committee.

A Tri-fecta of intrigue just coming our way! No word yet from convicted felon Robert Creamer on this one, or his wife Jan Schakowsky.

Earlier from Crain:

Prepaid tuition program failed in ShoreBank review, auditor general reports.

The state agency running the College Illinois prepaid tuition program, which lost all of a $12.7-million investment in Chicago community bank ShoreBank, failed to follow the state’s competitive procurement requirements in hiring a firm to vet the investment beforehand, the Illinois Auditor General concluded in a report Thursday

The auditor general also criticized the agency for considering only ShoreBank after changing its investment parameters to consider direct investments in private companies.

The report also chided the commission for hiring a firm with no expertise in advising on equity investments and for not having a contract in place before the work started. Full story here at Chicago Business

Van Jones continues with millions for his nest of vipers

Van Jones continues unabated in robbing the American people under the guise of Green energy. The American Thinker has a great piece that is worthy of a full read, but let me give you a few of the highlights, and include what our gal Iranian born Valerie Jarrett had to say about him before we were on to the game plan. By now, most know that Val is the one running the show in the WH. Here we go:

A solar installation research company based in Oakland, California called Solar Mosaic has just received $2 million in grant monies from the Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative program. Mosaic pulled in 4 times more money than the other eight companies that made the cut. Why did the California company fare so well? 

Simple. Obama’s former green jobs czar buddy, Anthony K. “Van” Jones is listed as an adviser while two radical organizations he co-founded are cited as “members of the Solar Mosaic family.”

The Soros-funded Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (EBC) in Oakland and Green For All (GFA) both started by Jones are in with Mosaic. The social justice fronts continue to haul in taxpayer monies for their far left radical causes while establishment politicians in DC turn a blind eye.

The Mosaic Solar website describes Ella Baker of the Ella Baker Center as “un unsung hero of the civil rights movement who inspired and guided emerging leaders.” Bakerin fact was a bridge between the far left activists of the day and the Communist Party. Read more: The American Thinker

Obama, Jarrett, Acorn, Van Jones and their ShoreBank involvement back in the news

This is a story that no doubt could be of little interest to most. I  picked up this story over at News Alert. It brought back a memory of a post of May 10 2010. At the time, I was hot on the trail of Obama’s Kenyan connections and his Muslim cousin Odinga running for President. I am digressing, hey, I am trying to justify this story and have you hang! So here is a taste.

In 2006, before his Presidential race, then-Sen. Barack Obama visited his father’s homeland of Kenya, and around the same times ShoreBank donated $1 million to that country to assist in micro-loan programs there.

What moral responsibility do we have toward our children?

The Lonely Conservative has an interesting take on the morality of stealing our kids future. with a lot of good links A steady drumbeat in many Christian Churches today, is the development of the concept of Social Justice. Frequently Collective Salvation, which has no less than Communism at its root, is the next step in this philosophy. With this comes a reminder of Obama’s concept of Collective Salvation. It is often being touted under the banner of Religion.  We have a rare glimpse into Obama’s moral compass with the video below.

 Bunkerville refers to a “private document”  by then Cardianl Ratzinger who later becomes Pope Benedict  on “Liberation Theology.” http://www.christendom-awake.org/pages/ratzinger/liberationtheol.htm from whence the concept of Collective Salvation has its eitiology, and his concern with  the dangers of Marxism.

Lonely Conservative :

When Did Robbing Our Children Become the Moral Thing to Do?

The Wall Street Journal has an important piece up today. Many progressive Christians would like us to believe that allowing the government to pick our pockets to help those in need is the moral thing to do. They forget that so many of us are generous, and gladly open our wallets when we  see those in need. But really, it all boils down to this question: Is it moral to steal from our children? Rest here: Lonely Conservative

From one of our earlier posts: The Pope says Collective Salvation is Demonic- Obama believes in it

And there is Van Jones:

Al Gore, Van Jones, Lisa Jackson to speak to 10,000 youth activists

We are so far behind this curve. We must get to our youth. They are literally being brainwashed. Recall our earlier post: NY Schools Curriculum features Van Jones lesson plan. Here is a snippet:  Van Jones Police Brutality lesson plan

And then we have Obama announces creation of a conservation youth corps of America.. I just read that the SEIU is heavily involved in this.

“I’m coming to Power Shift because I truly believe we must lead the world to a clean energy future, and young leaders are the driving force behind the movement that will make it happen,” Gore said today.

Sponsored by the Energy Action Coalition, Power Shift 2011 will feature a range of prominent voices. In addition to Al Gore, leaders such as Van Jones and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson will join the conference.

Gateway Pundit

Van Jones supports Cop Killer, but don’t say anything

Valerie Jarrett, the other side of Obama’s brain it has been called. The one who brought Van Jones and many of the radical Marxists into our government. Please take a moment for a refresher on her comments on Van Jones. Breitbart lost his gig over at the Huff Post because of his comments on Van Jones and this cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal . I lived in Philadelphia at the time it happened. No doubt on this one. Killed in cold blood. The video he produced and appears in, offers a real chance to hear the hatred he has for the United States. And Valerie is well aware of it.

You see thanks to the incompetence – or outright bias – of the mainstream media, Jones has never been held accountable for his role in producing and distributing one of the most vile pieces of anti-war, anti-American propaganda produced in the last decade. An album called WarTimes: Report from the Opposition which was narrated by none other than COP-KILLING Mumia Abu-Jamal. In case you missed this when it was first reported here on this blog, here are some snippets: Van Jones comes on at about 3:45. Slide up to it, if you need to. His anti-Israel rant may be hard to take.
