What’s to Say
Posted by Jeff Condon on June 18, 2009
Well I learned another lesson in global warming today. Again, it’s become an effort of know your enemy, I didn’t even know I had so many enemies. I put some reasonable statements up on a pro-AGW blog http://www.climaterogress.org and found the first comment I made was clipped. Don’t they think of the best names, Real Climate, Open Mind, Climate Progress, it all sounds like clean green earth. As stated here many times, there is no denial of climate change by myself only questions. However, my questions are apparently far too dangerous to publish.
I did my usual and began reading the background of the guy in charge of the blog.
As resume’s go, his isn’t too bad ..
After all, phd’s MIT and all that. Not to mention Clinton’s deputy energy secretary, ah yes now I remember! I suppose we should all give up and bow to his holiness, well except for one little detail. He’s a socialist nut being paid to pretend to be a scientist while advocating global warming. Why did a little post by me (a fringe blogger) need to be clipped? My post discussed the recent Global Climate Change Impacts Report -no cussing, no swearing and on topic. The report is nothing more than propaganda about science hurled at congress and America and that wasn’t discussed by me.
The blog article is HERE I saved the attempted posts because after the first one was clipped, I realized this site was apparently another leftist site like Tamino where scientists pretend to be open minded, yet are nothing more than political hacks pushing their views of governance. The difference is that this guy is supposed to be non-partisan to keep his tax-free status.
At the top of Romm’s page is a link to his funding source – only leftist blogs need funding. Joseph is a paid blogger – sounds like a good gig. The source is the Center for American Progress Fund- again pretty words which really mean ‘turn America into Venezuela fund’.
Well American progress apparently means, taking secret ballot rights from unions, promoting illegal aliens in America(a topic which needs to get addressed), socialized medicine, pull out of Iraq and of course global warming. They fund several blogs currently – ClimateProgress, the Wonk Room, Yglesias, and Think progress. In addition, they fund several groups directly including an organization which is dedicated to cutting poverty in half in ten years – sounds good until you realize that their policies do the opposite but the ignorant don’t know that.
Let’s just say they stand for everything America has proven wrong over the last 200 years. This little gem is from their site.
Founded on the ideals of the progressive movement at the turn of the century, today’s progressive movement believes that an open and effective government can improve the lives of everyday Americans by playing an active role in solving social and economic problems.
I have to tell you, the government in the US is already far too active in my life. I can’t believe fools are stupid enough to want more. Right after this beautiful paragraph above is an example of how the government doesn’t work.
The Center for American Progress Action Fund is a non-profit, non-partisan organization under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue code. Donations are not tax deductible and may be disclosed to the IRS.
NON-PARTISAN tax free organization! Do you understand this?!! I think America is sleeping, pretending that everything is reasonable. Does anyone believe that this group actively promoting leftist agenda policies is somehow non-partisan. Why doesn’t the government tax them? Now ask yourself, who benefits from this clear abuse of section 501 code? Wake up people, everything is not reasonable in America and you’re loosing your country right before your eyes.
Here’s a link to the – NON PARTISAN policies of CAP – I strongly recommend you at least skim this article.
And then we need to follow the money- the board of directors.
Carol Browner, Principle, The Albright Group
Richard Leone, President, The Century Foundation
Peter Lewis, Chairman, The Progressive Corporation
Cheryl Mills, SVP for Operations and Administration, New York University
Aryeh Neier, President, Open Society Institute
John Podesta, President and CEO, Center for American Progress
Marion Sandler, Co-Chair of the Board and Co-CEO, Golden West Financial
Hansjörg Wyss, Chairman and CEO, Synthes-Stratec
I wonder if anyone on that list has similar political bias. These groups are all interlinked and serve a single purpose. Socialism for America in exchange for our freedom. Some other related groups.
Add to the collective genius at
You do have to love self proclaimed genius. Those are the best kind.
This is a disgusting and huge network of tax free funding distributed to and spent by politicians pushing left wing policies. Just like Cuba, North Korea and Russia, censorship of dissent is a standard policy on leftist blogs like RealClimate, OpenMind, Climate Progress, DeepClimate and others.
Rather than put up my attempted posts, I’ll put up the last one and Romm’s reply.
JR are you going to let the posts through or keep them in limbo. What is the big deal?
[JR: The big deal is that I have a long-standing policy of not publishing long-debunked denier talking points, since they force me and everyone who comes here to waste time. One quick look at your blog makes clear that your only contribution to the environment is your mastery at recycling the garbage Pielke and his ilk put out.]
The ‘garbage’ by Pielke. Consider that! Pielke’s latest post was only mentioned briefly and I assure you that I made no long-debunked points in my comments but that’s not what the point was, censorship was the point.
We are in big trouble America this is what progressives really stand for; censorship, control, private jets and tax free money for themselves. All that and the illegal aliens don’t know any better.
I’m more afraid of publishing this article than anything else I’ve written. These people are dangerous, they are the same kinds of people who threatened banks with audits to force them to take federal money. Don’t worry about me guys, I’m just a fringe blogger.
The Center for American Progress is a liberal political policy research and advocacy organization. Its website describes it as “… a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to promoting a strong, just and free America that ensures opportunity for all.”
Its President and Chief Executive Officer is former lobbyist John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to then U.S. President Bill Clinton. Located in Washington, D.C., the Center for American Progress has a campus outreach group, Campus Progress, and a sister advocacy organization, the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Citing the significant number of its staff and former staff that have been appointed to positions in the Obama Administration, Time magazine recently declared that there is “no group in Washington with more influence at this moment in history.”
On a hunch, I searched under Soros and sure enough, he was one of three cofounders of this non-partisan group.
