MoveOn.org is planning to launch a protest movement to compliment the Occupy Wall Street momentum with the stated goal of “mak[ing] Wall Street pay” and rebuilding the entire U.S. financial system.
MoveOn.org is financed by the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Another grantee of Tides is the Adbusters magazine, which is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.
MoveOn.org on Sunday held a planning meeting in Manhattan to discuss ways to take on Wall Street in coordination with Occupy Wall Street.
This new campaign serves as further evidence suggesting that the anti-Wall Street movement is a well-planned effort and not the spontaneous uprising its leaders claim it to be.
Last week, KleinOnline broke the story that Fenton Communications, a public relations firm closely partnered with Tides, represented the anti-Wall Street march past millionaires’ homes in New York two weeks ago. Fenton also crafted the public relations strategy of MoveOn.org, as well as a who’s who of far-left causes, organizations and activists, from Soros himself to Health Care for America Now to a litany of anti-war groups.
The Occupy Wall Street march past millionaires’ homes was first announced in a press release entitled, “Community Groups and Progressive Organizations Join Together to Plan ‘Millionaires March’ with Occupy Wall Street Protestors.” The contact for that release was Fenton Communications.
Fenton Communications was founded in 1982 by David Fenton, an activist who served as a photographer for Bill Ayers’d domestic Weather Underground terror group.
Fenton works in conjunction with the Soros-funded Tides Center that funded Adbusters. Fenton used the Tides Center to set up Environmental Media Services in 1994. Tides reportedly originally ran EMS’s daily operations.
David Fenton serves on the board of numerous Tides-funded groups, while his firm represents more than 30 Tides Center grantees, as well as Soros himself and the billionaire’s Open Society Institute. Fenton helped to craft MoveOn.org’s attacks on Gen. David Petraeus.
While David Fenton first photographed Ayers in the 1960s, he later served alongside both Ayers and Obama on the board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago nonprofit which channeled money to a slew of progressive groups, including the Tides Center and the Alinsky-style Midwest Academy training outfit. Obama served as a paid director on the Woods Fund board from 1999 to 2002.
As the Chinese military reportedly expands its overseas aid missions and military exchanges in a major fashion, questions continue to arise regarding the White House’s response to Chinese expansionism.
President Obama’s China adviser, Evan Medeiros, has a long history of downplaying the threat to U.S. interests posed by China’s rapid military and economic growth, once even penning a paper that argued China should embrace a “great power mentality.” Medeiros is the White House National Security Council China director, a position to which he was appointed in 2009.
Medeiros was formerly a senior research analyst at the Arms Control Association in Washington D.C. He was also a project associate with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and joined the RAND Corporation as a political scientist in 2002.
In his “Inside the Ring” column in the Washington Times in July, Bill Gertz cited Congressional Republicans as identifying Medeiros as a key player involved in the Obama administration’s policy of refusing to sell needed arms to Taiwan. The same report blamed Medeiros for delaying the release of a second Pentagon report to Congress on the shifting air power balance in the Taiwan Strait.
The Washington Times also cited Republicans staff aides and a defense official as stating they believe Medeiros was behind efforts to delay the release to Congress of the Pentagon’s annual report on Chinese military power. The report on China’s military was also delayed last year. When it was eventually released, the report was watered down with a more innocuous-sounding title. Previously called the “Annual Report to Congress: Military Power of the People’s Republic of China,” the report was renamed the “Annual Report on Security Developments Involving China.”
Medeiros, meanwhile, was fingered by Gertz’s sources as a key official in preventing the U.S. sale of 66 advanced F-16 jets to Taiwan and for delaying the sale of equipment to upgrade Taiwan’s existing F-16s. Both sales were expected to anger China.
A review of Medeiros’s articles and statements to the news media in the past reveals a regular trend of minimizing China’s threat to the U.S. In 2009, just before his appointment to the NSC, Medeiros stated China is not seeking to “confront the United States or expel it from the region.” He argued China is not aiming to replace America as a superpower.
In 2007, Medeiros, speaking as an expert at the RAND Corporation, argued Beijing’s military buildup is limited to Asia and that China has not sought to project power globally. “Cumulatively, this is a substantial amount of money devoted toward military modernization. And it’s clearly a reflection of the Chinese government’s priorities and the fact that they seek to build a modern military with regional power projection capabilities,” Medeiros said.
In 2002, he minimized China’s missile project, telling The Economist that the Chinese “don’t really see missiles as weapons of mass destruction while most American policymakers equate the two.”
In an article in the November-December 2003 issue of Foreign Affairs magazine, Medeiros, with analyst M. Taylor Fravel, presented the views of experts on Chinese foreign policy as stating China should overcome its long-held “victim mentality” and adopt a “great power mentality” instead.
Speaking to Knight Ridder in 2001, Medeiros stated, “The Chinese defense industrial base is very outdated and dilapidated, especially in these areas where warfare is headed.”
