Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Third Party Co-opt Attempt in Progress

Some of you may have seen my Mockingbird Media Squawks post where Chris Matthews really grills this Eliot Ackerman guy. Well, at the Irregular Times, someone has done a bang-up job at researching this American Elect organization to see who is behind it. What they're doing is getting ballot access for a third party candidate to be chosen in the future. With how things are going, that sounds like a good idea, right?  Well, some DPers have gone to their website and taken their questionaire and it is very, very liberal. When you find out who is funding it, and accordring to Eliot Ackerman, his dad Peter, gave the seed money. Who is Peter Ackerman? CFR all the way baby!!!

I've got the list from Irregular Times for your perusal. I prominently highlighted the CFRers so you can see that they're all about this third party thing. The only way these one world commies win is by controlling every angle. Reminds me of that vote in Knox County where they said we needed a new downtown library and the people didn't want it. They were going to raise taxes-you get to choose property tax increase or a wheel tax. Those were the two choices on the referendum, there was no "I don't want a stinkin' library" option. When the people complained about the subsequent wheel tax, the politicians responded with "but you voted FOR it!" And no, the library was never built.

What we've got here is the Establishment realizing that they're witnessing the last hurrah of the two party system which they have controlled pretty much since the Civil War. They're now working their Plan B. Act like the magnanimous post-partisans that are above all of the bickering.

It would also appear to me that this American Elect group is just a continuation of Unity 08, an astroturf group funded by these banksters to promote an end to the bickering. ha. Think about Hegel's Dialectic for a minute, we had synthesis for several decades in the democrats and the liberal media that supported them. For the last 10 years especially we've had anti-thesis with the proliferation of conservative media in FoxNews and talk radio. Now are we ready for some synthesis? Peter Ackerman thinks so.

Note the bankster creds on these people. You can bet they benefit from the free money of the Fed.

Just some of your everyday people working together to ensure that democracy is served. Snark intended.


  1. and pointing it out pisses TPTB off. It's my very minute way of retaliating. Oops, just used a "combative" term, hope I don't get flagged.

  2. Sorry for the brevity. I hope you keep on informing us. I just that I don't know what to do about it and too many people are not even interested on doing anything if they did know. But what else would we do? Join the dark side?

  3. My thing is, I want to understand what and why is going on and hopefully point people to the whole reason that Jesus gave his life on Calvary ---to defeat Evil once and for all. I would hope that everyone would make their "calling and election sure". Jesus said to "fear not" more than anything else, because nothing they do can really harm the real you if you're one of His.

    The Bible tells us that their is going to be a tremendous backlash against the Antichrist. It all starts with knowledge, as Jesus said be "as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves".

  4. Well, there it is.

    Add the Serenity prayer.

    Also, a few days ago, I wrote to some very astute young family members that people and families had been through much much worse, and made good lives for themselves.

    In the end, money comes and goes, you can't take it with you, and our current mortal existence is that we're on a rock flying through space, inhabited by some of the most wonderful and some of the most evil creatures imaginable. There is a reason this isn't called Heaven.

    It will always be that many people will never understand what is going on.

  5. Add former NJ Governor and EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman to the list of bozos behind this nonsense. She's trying to convince Jon Huntsman to be the Americans Elect standard-bearer. Ugh.

  6. Ah, yes, Christine.
    I remember her saying the post 9/11 air was safe to breathe with unbelief. A couple of building built in 1970 blow up, er, fall down with dust flying everywhere and you think some of it ain't going to be asbestos? Sure. She was so qualified for that with her extensive career in environmental science.

    Christine sits on the board of SC Johnson, Texas Instruments, and United Technologies. She wrote a book called It's My Party Too a call for RINOS to be bold about RINO pride or something.

    She has donated to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Bush, Guiliani, and everyone's favorite conservative who isn't Ron Paul, Santorum. If she gave money to Santorum, as did a lot of other RINO types, how do you expect him to govern, hmmm?


    Dear globalist RINO traitors,
    Who do you think you're kidding anymore, seriously?

  7. Thanks for that incredible, detailed reseach. This is hardly a "party of the people". I commented over on Sondrakistan:

    "... …for the first time, America will nominate a president directly. Your voice, your choice, your president.”

    [And carefully chosen by us.]"

    But consider also the other angle: They're trying to sell this as a "party of the people".

    I'd certainly expect people in charge of a big organization to have some heavy-duty connections, but - there does seem to be a big bank and finance connection.

    People with Republican connections: 10
    People with Democrat connections: 8

    (There's a lot of overlap.

  8. There is only one party in this country, the globalist, collectivist party hell-bent on erasing the Constitution in favor of a one-world globalist government. And when you just have one political party, that is the definition of a totalitarian state. Yee hah.
