Why Is the Center for American Progress Cavorting with Neocons? Oh, Right, Because They Are on the Same Team

(Gee. I really hate being right all the time. (no, actually I don’t) Let’s not forget the CAP’s “progressive” blog/free focus group, Think Progress, has been called out, by this blogger,  as a neocon/neolib echo chamber for years now.)

The Center for American Progress, which was founded by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta in 2003, masqueraded as a “progressive,” semi-anti-war organization through the dark years of the Bush administration when it required little political courage to oppose the White House and wars that were portrayed as Bush’s or the Republicans’.

If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their money,
first by inflation and then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will
grow up around them (around the banks),
will deprive the people of their property
until their children will wake up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered
.”  Thomas Jefferson, 1802 in a letter to then Secretary of the Treasury
Behind locked doors and in the privacy of the Pharaohs, our “leaders” take their orders and devise new ways to sell off the fruits of our collective labor. Here, the wife of NAFTA and WalMart profiteer swoons as a Chinese financial giant greets an corruption plagued ex-Federal Reserve chairman turned Secretary of Treasury.

The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Open-mindedness

This is a very good video. Keep two things in mind while watching this;

1. People’s unrelenting alliances with political parties,  despite mounting evidence…

2. People’s resistance to even discuss the solid evidence relating to the events of 9/11.
