A Hidden Agenda



Maurice Strong with You Know Who


BECK: All right. Before we went to the break I was telling you about Maurice Strong. I want to show you his resume over here.

Now, this is — this is all about the new America Power Act, it’s cap-and-trade, climate bill. Here’s his picture.

He is currently an advisor to China. He was the godfather of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. He is a key player in the U.N., the World Bank and the Earth Council. He was once on the board of the now defunct Commission on Global Governance. Hmm!

I guess you get a lot of experience to be able to write those, you know, those novels when you do all of those things because you’re right there. Anyway, he pushed to get $600 billion sent to the developing world as reparations for a century of industrial development and environmental degradation. Hmm! So, take it from the rich. Got it?

He also was in business with Al Gore while Al Gore was in the Senate. He worked with him on environmental issues. On Earth Day, 1995, vice president then, Al Gore, visits Strong’s green technology company and then later he helps steer $33 million in taxpayer money — your money — to the Molten Metal Technology Company, which is interesting because that money was a — government hand-outs was the only source of income for this company.

And when the government started to say, OK, you know, I don’t think we’re going to pay you anymore. It folded. We stopped sending them money when it was apparent that Molten Metal didn’t actually do anything.

Oh, by the way, Strong cashed out his stocks at the peak, just before they made the announcement on a Sunday that the government cheese was drying up. He made $15 million. Everybody else lost money.

He’s extremely well-connected. He is very powerful. I mean, he’s with World Bank and everybody else. He’s not just some guy. This is a big fish we’re bringing into the boat.

Tell me you knew Maurice Strong. Had you ever heard of him? This guy is really powerful and rich. George Soros we knew. Did you know this guy before we exposed him? How about this guy? Do you know who they are?

I think — one of my producers that shall remain unnamed when we found the stuff that we’re on today cried. Could be wrong if you who are unnamed, but I don’t think so, because she realized what we’re dealing with here and who we’re dealing with. It’s not good stuff.

They’ll leave the illusions in place until the “E” word arrives — an emergency. An emergency. Gosh, there’s no emergency that can happen, huh? Like 20 percent unemployment, dollar collapsing, Greece and all of Europe on fire and chaos?

What happens when the emergency arrives? Germany is bailing them out now. And now, the IMF is saying to Greece what they can and cannot do. Where is their freedom?

They are being told now who they can hire and fire. They’ll look over all the budgets. Excuse me? That is the perfect socialist union.
How is it working out for you now, Greece?

The American power act has nothing to do with American power, unless it means redistribution of America’s power from the American people to the global elite. Find out all you can. Maurice Strong, send it now.

Maurice Strong 


Maurice Strong is a board member of the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). He is a former Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and a leading architect of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement that set binding greenhouse gas (GHG)-reduction targets for 37 industrialized countries.

In 1995 Strong headed a Massachusetts-based company called Molten Metal Technology, Inc. (MMTI), which claimed to have invented a process for recycling metals from waste but had failed to demonstrate that the technology could work on a commercial scale. Another MMTI leader was Peter Knight, the firm’s registered lobbyist and Al Gore’s former top Senate aide. On “Earth Day” in April 1995, Gore traveled to MMTI’s headquarters and praised the firm for its environmentally responsible work. At that time, MMTI had already received more than $25 million in U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research-and-development grants. And although the company had no other sources of revenue, Gore’s laudatory speech caused its stock value to soar to $35 per share.

But in March 1996, MMTI’s corporate officers learned that the DOE was planning to drastically cut back its funding in the near future. Between March and October 1996, seven MMTI officers—including Maurice Strong—quietly sold off $15.3 million in personal shares in the company, whose per-share value continued to hover around $35. Then on October 20, MMTI issued a press release announcing, for the first time, that its DOE subsidies would be scaled back dramatically. The next day, MMTI’s stock plunged by 49%, and it eventually dwindled to a mere $5 per share. In early 1997, stockholders filed an insider-trading class action suit against MMTI and its officers. The suit closely resembled a previous insider-trading lawsuit in which Maurice Strong had also been involved.

In The Capitalist Welfare State, Lund University economist Andreas Bergh explains how Sweden has managed to increase economic productivity despite its large public sector.

Bergh says that despite popular mythology, Sweden is not a socialist success story but instead owes its economic growth to the lowered tax rates and deregulation of the early 1990s, which allowed innovation and investment to flourish. Bergh also discusses how Sweden’s national voucher program revitalized the country’s educational system and warns that Americans who are hoping to emulate Swedish success by growing the public sector are learning the wrong lessons from Sweden.

    Crime, Inc. – Fannie Patent

    May 18, 2010 – 0:03 ET


    On Thursday, May 13, 2010, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) along with Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) sent a letter to David Kappos, the Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as Michael Williams, President and CEO of Fannie Mae, seeking information concerning a patent issued to Fannie Mae regarding a residential Cap and Trade system.

    On June 7, 2005, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a patent for a “System and Method for Residential Emissions Trading.”

    The patent was assigned to Fannie Mae and CO2e.com, LLC of New York.

    Listed as the inventors on the patent were former Fannie Mae Chairman and CEO Franklin Raines, as well as former Fannie Mae Executives Scott Lesmes and Robert Sahadi.

    This patent was issued during a crucial time in the country’s housing market.

    The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issued a report last year saying Fannie Mae and brother agency Freddie Mac contributed to the housing bubble bursting.

    “According to an analysis presented to the Committee, between 2002 and 2007, Fannie and Freddie purchased $1.9 trillion of mortgages made to borrowers with credit scores below 660, one of the definitions of “subprime” used by federal banking regulators.

    This represents over 54% of all such mortgages purchased during those years.”

    Currently, taxpayers will be expected to backstop at least $145 billion of Fannie’s and Freddie’s losses, and just last week Fannie Mae said it needs another $8.4 billion by June 30.

    Rep. Chaffetz told Glenn on Fox News that because the government is the majority owner of Fannie, it should have to open up its books.

    Copy of the Chaffetz/Issa letter can be found here.

    Thee SSN is not on the FOIA request . What the FOIA request shows is the Selective Service number he was issued. If you go on the Selective Service site and enter his name, birth date , and the 042 soc sec number, a matched record comes up – matching the selective service number he was issued. That shows he used that soc sec number. If you enter his name ,birthdate, and a diff soc sec number, you get a “No record found ” message. The above link shos it all.

    Martin, as conveyed via email to me, thinks it’s time to ask Congressman Eni Faleomavaega a few questions:

    1) What was the purpose of visiting Obama’s childhood school?

    2) How much money was given to Barack Obama’s school, and why?

    3) Why was there no mention of his trip to Indonesia and, considering his previous position, why was there a complete shift of his position on autonomy for the residents of Papua?

    4) What did he discuss with the President of Indonesia regarding Barack Obama?


    1) What is the current status of Obama’s Indonesian citizenship? Was it ever repudiated? If so, when? Martin wrote that “Obama is (not was) Indonesian. [Keep in mind from Judah Benjamin’s work that Kenyan citizenship, which Obama has now admitted acquiring at birth, automatically expired, but he would have had to formally renounce Indonesian citizenship by age 21.]

    2) What was the nature of the records that were “acquired” by the US delegation, and how were they “suppressed?”

    The $10 Trillion Climate Fraud

    Posted 04/28/2010 07:11 PM ET



    Thanks to Fox News’ Glenn Beck, we have learned a lot about CCX, not the least of which is that its founder, Richard Sandor, says he knew Obama well back in the day when the Joyce Foundation awarded money to the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, where Sandor was a research professor.

    Sandor estimates that climate trading could be “a $10 trillion dollar market.” It could very well be, if cap-and-trade measures like Waxman-Markey and Kerry-Boxer are signed into law, making energy prices skyrocket, and as companies buy and sell permits to emit those six “greenhouse” gases.

    So lucrative does this market appear, it attracted the attention of London-based Generation Investment Management, which purchased a stake in CCX and is now the fifth-largest shareholder.

    As we noted last year, Gore is co-founder of Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offsets of dubious value that let rich polluters continue to pollute with a clear conscience.

    $606 million for climate credits group


    May 1, 2010

    BY DAVID ROEDER Sun-Times Columnist

    Richard Sandor, an innovator in the Chicago futures markets, is selling out of the market for trading carbon emissions credits.

    Sandor, 68, agreed to sell his Climate Exchange PLC to Atlanta-based IntercontinentalExchange Inc. for $606 million.

    His London-based company owns the Chicago Climate Exchange and the Chicago Climate Futures Exchange as a well as a similar business in London.

    He set up the company in 2003, hoping that global interest in cutting greenhouse gases would lead to a market for the carbon credits.

    After initial growth, trading of the credits has recently decreased as support has foundered for a “cap-and-trade” proposal in Washington.

    Analysts believe the trading still has potential for explosive growth.

    Intercontinental, or ICE, valued Climate Exchange at a 57 percent premium over where the shares traded in London on Thursday, before the deal’s announcement.

    Sandor will sell his 17 percent stake.

    ICE, which already owns 4.8 percent of Climate Exchange, said other large shareholders also have agreed to sell.

    ICE trading is concentrated in the energy market.

    “We believe that a combination with ICE makes strategic sense and look forward to addressing continued opportunities together,” Sandor said.


    Glenn Beck mentioned this sale on his TV show, not too clear on the details.

    Does this sale affect patent mentioned above?

    Obviously ICE sees a profit in its future.

    Isn’t this one more example of artificially inflating the price of a commodity which has no intrinsic value?

    ‘Glenn Beck’: GOP Lawmaker Wants Details on Fannie Mae’s Cap-and-Trade Patents


    BECK: We can’t do it. And it’s awfully — it’s great for Fannie.

    Can you — can you explain why we couldn’t file that Freedom of Information Act?

    CHAFFETZ: Well, we’ve requested information, but because they are government-sponsored enterprise, the GSE, they fall outside the scope of a FOIA request, the Freedom of Information Act.

    And I think this is fundamentally wrong.

    In fact, you have Judicial Watch, one of the watchdog groups filing suit against Fannie and Freddie, wanting information about where all their campaign contributions went and what not.

    The Obama administration has come back now and actually argued in court in the last 60 days or so and said, no, no, no, you do not have the right to that information because they’re not a full-fledged government entity — even though we’re on the hook for literally hundreds of billions of dollars.

    BECK: Right.

    CHAFFETZ: So, we’re trying to get the information.

    But I see what the Barack Obama is arguing and I — and Judicial Watch hasn’t been able to get that information —


    BECK: Are you going to be able to get the information as congressmen?

    Can you get the information?

    CHAFFETZ: I’m not that optimistic but if we need to change the law, we’re going to write a law to change the law.

    BECK: OK.

    CHAFFETZ: But right now, as it stands, we’re going to have a tough time.

    BECK: Here’s the thing: This is a mortgage company.

    All they’re supposed to do, that’s their charter, to do mortgages.

    CHAFFETZ: Yes.

    BECK: They’ve got — they’ve got, I think, four patents out.

    They all are around cap-and-trade, but this is residential.

    When you think of cap-and-trade, you think,

    “Oh, you know, OK, so Exxon has to pay some more money for cap-and-trade.”

    No, no, no — this is your individual house, correct?

    CHAFFETZ: Yes.

    They even have a patent — there’s another patent we found that actually puts a lock on your individual outlets

    — it’s literally to have a patent for this —

    to lock your individual outlet so that they can control the mechanism by which you lock that little outlet.

    It’s unbelievable.

    BECK: Thank you, Jason. I appreciate it. We’ll talk again.

    CHAFFETZ: Thanks, Glenn.

    Birthers v. Truthers, Again [Jonah Goldberg]


    As I wrote last year, I find it amazing that the “Birthers” are considered more dangerous and evil than the “Truthers.”

    The Birthers believe that an ambitious man who travelled a lot as a kid has concealed the circumstances of his birth so he could be eligible for the presidency.

    I don’t think they’ve made their case.

    And, frankly, I’m not sure I’d want them to at this point.

    Aside from the horror of a Biden presidency, I for one don’t yearn for a constitutional crisis.

    And while I am sure there are more elaborate and crazier versions of Birtherism, the basic allegation isn’t that crazy, at least in the abstract.

    Now, Trutherism, on the other hand, is a really insidious and evil claim:

    that the White House was “in” on 9/11 and that it either passively or actively aided and abetted the murder of 3,000 Americans and the attempted murder of tens of thousands more

    (surely the hijackers hoped to kill far more people inside the World Trade Towers).


    Thank you, Mr Goldberg. I’ve been trying to make the same point for a long time now. Birthers and Truthers are hardly the same and shouldn’t be lumped together.

    I don’t believe candidates should touch the birther issue with a ten-foot pole. And if it comes up just say you believe Obama is eligible but Americans have the right to ask questions.

    But to bash birthers the way that Hugh Hewitt does and especially Michael Medved who thinks we’re all racists just gets us riled up.

    And the next time Obama brings it up, ask yourself why he keeps bringing it up.

    The Social Security question is a waste of time. The services these “investigators” like Orly Taitz are using don’t confirm their data. Someone could send a joke application to a credit card company under the name Barack Obama and it would show up in the system under that name until it’s scrubbed. That’s why they had over a hundred results around the election and now it’s something like 20.

I can see that you are attempting to ratchet up the pressure on them and force them to answer and provide the requested information. 🙂

    At some point the “misunderstanding” claim has to be called for the BS it is. I made it very clear what I was asking for. The State Archivist had no problem comprehending what I was asking for.

    No matter how you slice it these people are either incompetent and should be fired, or else lying and should be jailed.

    The fact that both the OIP and the Ombudsman know the HDOH is and has been breaking the law and both refuse to do anything about it means that THEY are either incompetent and should be fired, or else complicit in illegal behavior and should be jailed.

    It goes all the way up the chain of command that way because they were all notified.

    I did notice when I stumbled upon something in Outlook Express that my e-mails to some of the Hawaii House and Senate members were kicked back as spam – I suppose I had too many addressees I sent to at once. I don’t even know how to get back to that information to find out who did or didn’t receive my e-mail.

    44% — 55%

    (More bad news for Obama. My take — I think more and more who were willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt have just lost all patience with him. This is worse than the trust deficit I spoke of before. This is — to hold in contempt. And his obtuseness is becoming more and more apparent. As in stubbornly stupid.)

    (But he is CIC, de jure or otherwise. And he’s losing more and more men, so to speak. You’d think that would soften him, even if nothing else has.)

    Dodd abandons derivatives compromise


    … the industry’s continued dissatisfaction may cause Mr Dodd to drop his plan, leaving the banks with the Lincoln text that means

    a costly restructuring of their business models and the possibility of losing clients to the likes of Barclays Capital and Deutsche Bank.

    “It just gets worse and worse and worse in a rather irrational way that’s almost surreal,” said Judd Gregg, a Republican senator from New Hampshire.

    “It’s almost as if we were at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party the way this derivatives language is evolving.”

    “We already know that [it doesn’t make sense] because a group of those regulators have already said it doesn’t make sense.

    So, we’re going to wait for two years for the council to determine that it doesn’t make sense when we already know that it doesn’t make sense?”

    A Senate vote was due at 2pm Eastern Time to decide whether to enforce “cloture” and bring an end to the debate on the bill.

    Democrats need the support of at least one Republican to win and a final vote would then come either later Wednesday or, more likely, on Thursday.

    Senate’s Dodd Said to Drop Plan for Swaps-Desk Compromise


    Dodd’s decision means the Senate legislation is likely to include the rule,

    which would force banks such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to move swaps trading to subsidiaries,

    when it comes up for a final vote as soon as this week.

    The banking industry and Senate Republicans, who have opposed the Lincoln provision, have argued that the Dodd amendment might actually prove more onerous, given the uncertainty it would cause in the market.

    The amendment “would put in place an even more convoluted system” than the Lincoln amendment, Senator Judd Gregg, a New Hampshire Republican, said today.

    (Whose amendment? I’m confused.)

    Fitzpatrick cruises in 8th District


    Former Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick piled up about 75 percent of the vote to gain the Republican nomination for the 8th Congressional District, according to unofficial results Tuesday night.

    Fitzpatrick, who called his victory margin “humbling,” easily outpaced a field consisting of

    Solebury Committeewoman Gloria Carlineo,

    *** financial adviser Ira Hoffman ***

    James Jones, a businessman with a military background.

    Hoffman, 54, harped on the government’s deficit spending and pushed his eight-point plan for the 8th District.

    It included terminating both the Department of Education and Department of Energy.

    He is a big supporter of Wisconsin conservative Congressman Paul Ryan’s “Roadmap for America,” a proposal that would cut both taxes and entitlement programs.


    an investment adviser from Solebury and president of Hoffman Wealth Solutions,

    said the people of America have a net worth of about $40 trillion but the unfunded liabilities of Medicare are running about $38 trillion.

    “It’s nowhere near sustainable,” he said. “We’d have to liquidate the country and sell it to China.”

    (I’m interested in this story because of Paul Ryan connection. Wish Hoffman had done better. Glenn Beck speaks of Restoring America. But that will require swallowing a bitter pill. And I worry America not ready to take its medicine.)
