Great post. S & F.
One of the major facts that the two videos left out is the fact that the Apollo Alliance came out of COWS, the Center on Wisconsin Strategy, an ultra
far-left think tank organization.
Now here is where everything connects together. COWS understood that the Clean Energy (Apollo) Alliance did not have a chance in hell of succeeding,
UNLESS the government legislates fossil fuels into non-existence, because the cost justification curve is a disaster.
Thus, the Cap and Trade Bill....
The Cap and Trade Bill is the engine that will allow COWS/Apollo to "succeed". Of course, the "success" will be at the expense of the destruction
of the rest of the US economy.
Now add to that the Campaign for America's Future, CAF.
This organization was founded in 1996:
The Left-Wing Network:
Founded in 1996 by 100 activists and writers, CAF’s founders include Mary Frances Berry, former head of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights;
feminist Betty Friedan; Denis Hayes, coordinator of the first Earth Day in 1970 (and who chose Lenin’s birthday for the annual greenfest); Jesse
a large number of union officials including John Sweeney, head of the AFL-CIO, and Andy Stern, leader of the large Service Employees International
Union (SEIU). A scan of CAF’s founders shows that 13 of
them are primarily identified as union officials, and many more are labor activists or labor scholars.
A large chunk of CAF’s funding comes from the unions and left-leaning foundations. Its revenues likely ramped up in 2007 and 2008, but 2006 is the
most recent year for which data is available. Foundation donors’ money
fl ows more to IAF than CAF. Typical is the liberal Agnes Gund Foundation, which was founded by a former president of the Museum of Modern Art in New
York City. It gave IAF $75,000 in 2006. Another foundation donor,
the Arca Foundation, whose money comes from Democratic fundraiser and R.J. Reynolds heir Smith Bagley, gave $50,000.
Of course, most of us have heard of SEIU, as late as this week, when SEI"U thugs beat up a conservative protester at a health care town hall
“They’re a front group for the AFL-CIO,” says Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), a pro-limited government non-profit
that hosts regular coalition meetings for conservative activists in Washington. “Read their rhetoric, they talk about not going back to the Gilded
They’re campaigning as if it’s 1905.” CAF is not quite an AFL-CIO front group, but it does mobilize left-wing activists and union organizers
dedicated to increasing the government’s control over the American economy. Billing itself as “the strategy center for the progressive
movement,” CAF writers and activists generate large numbers of articles, blog posts, and videos pushing the liberal agenda, arguing for progressive
policy proposals and explaining how to sell them to ordinary Americans. With the help of money from George Soros and Big Labor, CAF holds conferences
such as the influential “Take Back America” gathering held in Washington, D.C. earlier this year and regular strategy sessions with other top
liberal groups. CAF and IAF are officially independent of the Democratic Party and all
This is all part of the VAST LEFT-WING liberal conspiracy, which of course, the MSM, outside of FOXNews has been silence about.
This is truly a conspiracy to steal the wealth of America and direct to the chosen few, and indeed, China is a silent partner in this crime.
