Crime, Inc.: Our President and friends

For those that have been reading my recent posts on corruption with Obama, Goldman Sachs and friends this is the next piece in the saga. You can get caught up here and here. I am now going to start referring to this as Crime, Inc. as Glenn Beck is currently doing, because that’s about what this all boils down to.

We last left off introducing a new character, Joel Rogers. Joel is an interesting man and yet another self-avowed socialist who seems to support our current President. Coincidence, I’m sure.

Joel recently admitted that Cap and Trade would do nothing to help the environment and that it’s sole purpose is to redistribute wealth.

From a video: “You will be well on your way to actually green the American economy. And you will grow the wealth and GE and CISCO and the other people who are announcing great plans should be relatively happy with that and any environmentalist who’s not concerned about the distribution of that wealth should be relatively happy. I hope you all realize that you could eliminate every power plant in America today and you can stop every car in America. Take out the entire power generation sector. Take out all of the transportation sector. And you still wouldn’t be anywhere near 80% below 1990 levels. You’d be closer to 60%, you’d be around 68% and that’s bringing the economy to a complete halt. Basically.”

From another video: “The profit seeking business essentially owns our political system, it owns the political parties, it funds their conventions, it provides the lions share of the one billion dollars in private cash that will decide this year who even gets to play the electoral game, much less decides who wins it. It owns the major media and a lot of the minor ones too. We must become you in the sense of organized, independent, in the the economy and on the street if business power is to be checked. So let’s check it with some muscle, but also, always beneath the muscle, hear the beating of the heart.”

Hmmm…. Well, last I checked, in the free-market system, we are the muscle. You control where you spend your money and the companies in turn either benefit, or shrivel up and die. Anyone curious why GE and Cisco are going to be the ones to benefit from Cap and Trade? Oh, wait, I know, they are both politically connected. GE political donations to Democrats in the 2008 political cycle $2.5 million dollars, to Republicans $1.43 million. Donations to Barack Obama alone, $499,130. Lobbying spending, brace yourself, $39 million dollars. Cisco political donations: $974,084 to Democrats and $547,056 to Republicans. Cisco spent $2.8 million in lobbying. Now let’s not forget who owns MSNBC. It’s GE. Ever wonder why MSNBC likes Barry so much? Let’s not forget how much Goldman Sachs has invested in the whole Cap and Trade scheme.

The Cap and Trade bill was just proposed yesterday by John Kerry and Joe Lieberman. Keep your eyes on it.
