On Sunday, I opened the newspaper and came across a full-page ad sponsored by AARP, in favor of “financial reform.” The ad claimed, “It’s time to stop the fat cats from putting your money at risk.” The ad urged readers, “Tell your senators to pass financial reform now.”
So, let’s get this straight. First AARP was on board with ObamaCare. Now, they’re on board with “financial reform,” whatever that is, because just as with ObamaCare, nobody knows what’s in the bill. Whatever. AARP is for it. Yeah! You go, Obama. Whatever you say, Dear Leader.
AARP even has a new video ad running “across the country, ” starting today. Check it out: http://blog.aarp.org/shaarpsession/2010/04/new_aarp_ad_on_financial_refor.html
The video was touted on the AARP blog by Barry Jackson. The inimitable Pam Geller wrote about another item of Barry Jackson’s literature:
“AARP is sending around mendacious emails, selling out seniors in shilling for fascist rule,” Pam wrote. The writer of the email in question was Barry Jackson. One wonders if this is the same Barry Jackson who worked for GWB during the push for the Medicare prescription drug program? http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Article/060279-2009-10-23-aarps-tradition-of-betrayal.htm
From the link: “AARP’s Role in Enacting the Controversial Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003 – the So-Called Part D: Costing tens of billions annually, passage came only after initially being defeated, followed by a three hour all-night suspending of proceedings to exert pressure and offer bribes because passage assured PhRMA big profits at the expense of seniors extorted top dollar for prescription drugs, not the substantial savings government-negotiated prices would have delivered. Yet AARP was one of its staunchest advocates. In an email later revealed, the organization’s associate executive policy director, Chris Hansen (a former aerospace lobbyist), assured Bush deputy assistant to the president, Barry Jackson, that he was on board with only minor issues to resolve.”
If you’re a member of the Baby Boom generation, did y’all join AARP when you hit 50? Did you think it was a cheap and easy way to get discounts on hotel rooms and auto insurance? Did you think they would advocate for you? Or did you imagine in your wildest dreams that instead they would use your dues to pay for propaganda in favor of Marxism? Here’s their vision and motto:
“For more than 50 years, AARP has been serving its members and creating positive social change. AARP’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for all as we age, leading positive social change and delivering value to members through information, advocacy and service. We believe strongly in the principles of collective purpose, collective voice, and collective purchasing power, and these principles guide all organization efforts. AARP works tirelessly to fulfill its vision: a society in which everyone ages with dignity and purpose, and in which AARP helps people fulfill their goals and dreams. AARP speaks with one voice – united by a common motto: ‘To serve, not be served.’” [Emphasis added.]
Is this what y’all signed up for? To SERVE whom? Obama? Via the Collective? Now, if you can’t age “with dignity and purpose,” under ObamaCare what’s your alternative? Not aging at all? Huh? How’s this for an AARP initiative? http://www.aarp.org/issues/dividedwefail/
Pay close attention to the logos at the top of the page, showing their partners in this social justice initiative. Do you see it? SEIU!!!! Here’s the leadership of “Divided We Fail”:
A. Barry Rand — According to the AARP webpage, “Mr. Rand distinguished himself as a leader of social change in some of our nation’s largest corporate and educational institutions.” Social change? He was a big donor to Obama: http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/3963-new-aarp-chief-gave-big-to-obama He even visited Obama at the WH: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31485134 After the State of the Union speech, Rand “praised Obama’s proposal for an automatic IRA to help current workers save for retirement.” An AUTOMATIC IRA. No doubt a mandatory one, subject to control by an Obama-appointed, unelected board (aka, the Marxist government). You save; we take and spend. Change you don’t want to believe in. Give us your 401K, too.
John J. Castellani — President of the Business Roundtable. Suffice it to say that he’s a member of the “economic elite.” During “the first nine months of Obama’s presidency, Castellani met with [Obama] at the White House more than any other person, with the exception of Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue.” Castellani hedges his bets, having contributed to Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, Susan Collins, John Boehner, and GWB, among others, according to Huffington. Here’s an interesting article, source of the above quotes: http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=17767 Can you say, NWO?
Andy Stern — No need to explain. We already know who he is: The most frequent visitor to the WH. Head of SEIU. Soon to retire and become what? WH Minister of Thuggery?
Dan Danner — Now this guy may be the token conservative, there to make what is supposed to be a non-partisan group appear, at least on the surface, politically “diverse.” He worked for Reagan and GHWB. On the other hand, “Danner has deep ties to the Washington business community, including to Thomas J. Donohue, who heads the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. On health-care reform, Danner’s NFIB has allied themselves with groups, including Karen Ignagni’s AHIP and Andy Stern’s SEIU.” http://www.whorunsgov.com/Profiles/Dan_Danner
I heard Glenn Beck talking about Cass Sunstein this morning. He reports that Sunstein is “nudging” Obama supporters to infiltrate entities that oppose Obama’s policies. They’re being tasked to infiltrate Tea Parties, infiltrate pro-Tea Party websites, infiltrate advocacy groups that oppose Obama’s Marxist takeover of the USA, infiltrate, basically, EVERYTHING.
When I mentioned the AARP ad to Renee the other day, she challenged me to do a little investigating of AARP. What I found made me think that this ad was no coincidence. Nope. No more of a coincidence than that SEC complaint about Goldman Sachs, which comes right as Obama starts pushing his financial reforms–those reforms that can’t wait even one more day, lest we have another financial meltdown, caused by those evil banker fat cats. You know, all those guys that Obama’s in bed with, all those guys in his administration. And the ones he meets with more often than anybody else, right there in the WH. (I’m not talking about Barney Frank who, of course, actually deserves more blame than the banks do for the subprime loan debacle.) No more of a coincidence than the plethora of lamestream media stories castigating the fat cats and promoting the crucial need for financial reform and regulation. NOW!
So riddle me this: Has AARP has been subverted and infiltrated, nudged towards the Marxist NWO? If you belong to AARP, it’s time to think about making your voice heard loud and clear, or taking your money elsewhere. For example: http://americanseniors.org/
That pesky B.C. again….

Subject: An American Citizens Response…
Barack OBAMA, in his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
AN AMERICAN CITIZEN’S RESPONSE:
Dear Mr. Obama:
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence?
Bill of Rights?
Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England? No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.
There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?
Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America.
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.
And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.

To make it clear: There are some peace-loving Muslims living in America, but for BO to allege that Muslims have always been a part of our heritage is an outright lie. He is not American in his beliefs and we all know he is trying to bring this country down as fast as he can. We see it over and over again.
Hilarious-lets all make one too !
Miri, Another non coincidence ? I knew there was a dark, deep well where this story was concerned. Just another Brown in the neighborhood ? I just knew it. Not sure however of how much better off they are across the pond though as Cameron name is ALL in my digs too but anyway…
