Non-binding Resolution only a prelude


Yesterday the House passed H CON RES 63. The vote was:

Republicans:  17 Yes…………180 No

Democrats:  229 Yes………….2    No

According to the Democrats, the Republican arguments that this resolution was a prelude to other action  is not the case. So, what is this website, MoveCongress.org all about? Read on:

Welcome to MoveCongress.Org

Welcome to MoveCongress.org, an on-line resource for Americans who want to end the Bush war in Iraq. You will be able to find everything you need to help move Congress to use its constitutional power – the power of the purse – to provide a check on a president and a war that is out of control.

It is time for Congress to exercise its power, stop the Bush war in Iraq and begin the redeployment of our troops out of harm’s way. Together, we will end the Bush war in Iraq and take back our country.

About Us

Its allies are associated with so many different organizations and such that inter twine it is hard to follow their path. Either by direct affiliation or by board member affiliation they are all tied together. CAP is one and it is said to be “a whitehouse outside the whitehouse.” Former Clinton staffers, George Soros, Harold Ickes [both helped form the Shadow party with Hillary Clinton.

Samuel Rubin (1901-1978) was a Russian Bolshevik and the father of Cora Weiss, who headed the Samuel Rubin Foundation from its inception and is currently the principal financier of IPS. Weiss’ husband, Peter, is Chairman of the IPS Board of Trustees. He is also a member of the National Lawyers Guild and the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, both of which were created as Communist Party fronts. The Weisses selected Richard J. Barnet and Marcus Raskin to be the first Co-Directors of IPS, with the aim of transforming the United States by altering public attitudes, changing laws, and reversing foreign policy through an Academy that reached every nexus of the national nervous system………The Center for Security Studies was a 1974 IPS spinoff and strove to compromise the effectiveness of U.S. intelligence agencies………..[my emphasis]

All except Mr. Honda are members of the radical Progressive Caucus.]

Working Assets – [Just as Working Assets, which is a member organization of the Peace and Security Funders Group, condemns the Iraq War, so does it stand in strong opposition to numerous aspects of the Patriot Act anti-terrorism legislation, which it views as an assault on the civil liberties of Americans. A piece contributed to the Working Assets website by Sojournersan evangelical Christian ministry that preaches radical leftist politics, embraces liberation theology, and championed Communist revolution in Central America — asserts the following:

“A few short years ago, almost no one in America had heard of places called Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Now, those names have become infamous worldwide – for repeated instances of torture, inflicted by Americans on prisoners we continue to hold there as part of the so-called ‘war on terror.'”]

Kellogg Foundation, the United Nations Foundation, the Tides Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. According to the Institute on Religion and Democracy (IRD), the Council “is more dependent financially upon the Ford Foundation than upon 32 of its 35 member denominations.”

Says IRD: “Most of the NCC-supporting groups share several characteristics:  (a) They are not affiliated with an NCC member communion, or any other church body; (b) Christian unity and common witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ do not appear to be among their principal aims; (c) They have a much stronger interest in addressing social and political issues; (d) Their positions on those issues, insofar as they can be discerned, lean overwhelmingly toward the left.”]

2020 Vision – [funded by: The Educational Foundation of America , The Energy Foundation , The Ford Foundation,  The Ploughshares Fund, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund,  The Rockefeller Brothers Fund , The Rockefeller Family Fund,  Rockefeller Financial Services, The Town Creek Foundation,  The Town Creek Foundation.

AFSC– [In the 1970s John McAuliffe, who then headed AFSC’s Indochina program, initially characterized the news of Cambodian massacres under Pol Potas an American “misinformation campaign,” and lauded the Pol Pot regime as “the example of an alternative model of development and social organization.” AFSC also distributed a printed defense of the Khmer Rouge well after the genocide in Cambodia had been exposed. At that time McAuliffe said “all reliable sources indicate that the [Marxist] Vietnamese are carrying out the task of reconstruction with extraordinary humaneness.” When McAuliffe and AFSC finally recognized the horrors of Pol Pot’s regime, they placed the blame squarely on the United States….According to AFSC, the chief exploiter of other nations, and consequently the primary agent of evil on earth, is the United States. ….AFSC has received grants from the Blue Moon Fund, the Columbia Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Minneapolis Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Public Welfare Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation, and numerous others. In 1947 AFSC was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.]

UUSC – [Mission Statement:
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to challenge oppressive policies.
  
Vision Statement:
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) envisions a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights.]

NETWORK -[nothing significant at this time.]

IPS– [Financial support for IPS comes from such foundations as the Ford Foundation, the Ploughshares Fund, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Arca Foundation, the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation, the Compton Foundation, the Educational Foundation of America, the Energy Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Foundation for Deep Ecology, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Turner Foundation, and many others.]

According to the MoveCongress.org website, Murtha has already laid out plans for blocking the “supplemental funding bill.” Didn’t all those Democrats say in the House yesterday they would do nothing to endanger out troops already in the field. If blocking funding doesn’t hurt the troops I don’t know what you would call it.

If you go through each of the organizations above, nearly all are members of UFPJ or ANSWER. For over thirty years there has been a systematic encroachment of our government in all three branches and other areas that will allow these comnmunist organizations to change our government from the inside out. By alliances with legitimate causes and now more openly, they have already succeeded in gaining control of the Democratic Party.

They have also worked diligently to make foreign governments see America as the single greates threat to world peace. They have lobbied world nations to force UN votes against us. They want any action of self defense we take to be perforemed by peace keeping troops. That way the U.S. can’t take any action on its own. Go through these agencies, their parent agencies, their sub-ordinate agencies. Follow the trails and and you will see that the trail almost always ends at the same one or two places.

  1. An interesting plan. I have made a comment on your blog. I will put up a link to your site too.

  2. The Democrats will stop at nothing to ensure a defeat for not only America, but the entire West, at the hands of Islamofascists in Iraq who want to start their caliphate with BAGDAD as their capital city.

    But, I came in here to give you good news of great joy!

    A new political party is being offered to the tens of millions of Americans who feel that both the Republican party and the Democrat party have NOT led them to achieve what they really want our government to do for them.

    We want our borders secured and our immigration laws ENFORCED NOW! We want tax reform-and we want it ASAP! We want much more efficient, innovative and effective SMALLER government that gives us more bang for our hard-earned buck. We want Senate rules that currently do not allow an up or down vote for all executive appointment to the federal judiciary changed to allow a constitutional up or down vote. We want our second amendment right to keep and BEAR arms VIGILANTLY protected! We believe America’s best and brightest days are YET to come! We yearn for REAL change that PRODUCES real results that truly satisfies our good desires for our families, America’s future and our posterity. And, we want it all RIGHT NOW!

    The new party is called the ‘New Republican Party’ and can be further studied at my website. This party is what we, and millions of others like us, have all been searching for…but it has never existed before…until NOW!

  3. It was a disgusting display of liars!

  4. Ah yes ~ all the familiar socialists and communists and professional protesters. Murtha should be removed from office. He is not looking out for the welfare of our troops. He only wants to bring down the Administration. I think and pray that the Left is in for a rude awakening when middle America starts to really feel the pinch of the Nanny State the Progressives (read Socialists) are pushing for so hard.
    I heard one of the House republicans call the resolution nothing more than “San Francisco Sophistry”. I loved that.
