- Club of Rome, “The First Global Revolution” There's a new Agenda 21-supporting bill -- proposed by Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) -- called the Livable Communities Act (SB 1619), and it's just been approved by the US Senate Banking Committee, on the fast track to passage in the Senate. There are many things I believe we should all be fearful of about this legislation, the first of which is that it was proposed by Chris Dodd. Let's take a look at Mr. Dodd, shall we?:
"Senator Dodd [has been on the] "Ten Most Corrupt" list [for the past few years] for his corrupt relationship with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and for accepting preferential treatment and loan terms from Countrywide Financial, a scandal which still dogs him. In 2009, the scandals kept coming for the Connecticut Democrat. [That year] Judicial Watch filed a Senate ethics complaint against Dodd for undervaluing a property he owns in Ireland on his Senate Financial Disclosure forms. Judicial Watch's complaint forced Dodd to amend the forms.
"However, press reports suggest the property to this day remains undervalued. Judicial Watch also alleges in the complaint that Dodd obtained a sweetheart deal for the property in exchange for his assistance in obtaining a presidential pardon (during the Clinton administration) and other favors for a long-time friend and business associate. The false financial disclosure forms were part of the cover-up. Dodd remains the head the Senate Banking Committee."
For more on Dodd's corrupt past, present and future, read Dick Morris's "Catastrophe." It's a book with serious Republican-leaning BS throughout, but the portion on Dodd is presented using facts, not BS... and the facts are clear: Dodd's a real scumbag.
Now, with all that in mind, does Dodd sound like a guy who has anything of value to offer our country? Does he sound like a guy who would create legislation that would help us, or help himself? After all, that's the nature of corporatism: politicians create legislation that helps only big corporations who then donate money to Dodd to keep him in his cushy little existence. Dodd and a slew of corrupt and/or ignorant propagandists then move to convince the public that the legislation is in their best interest.
And please, let us not forget that the recently passed "Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act" (H.R. 4173) was proposed and pushed by none other than...Chris Dodd! Oh, and Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), another corrupt politician who makes the "Most Corrupt" list annually. What did this bill do? For more, see here, here, here and here. This is an excellent four-part commentary on the corruption and lies being peddled out of Washington, all for the benefit of unethical politicians (legislators), amoral corporations (special interests) and the bottom-feeders who survive solely off of their excesses.
