The Greedy, Genocidal Mafia
Behind the Green Jobs Fraud

by Nancy Spannaus and Mark Bender

[PDF version of this article]

March 13—Almost one year after its highly useful exposé of the fascist "behaviorist" cabal playing a decisive role within the Obama Administration, Time magazine has released a new bombshell. This time they point the finger directly at the green genocidal mafia (as in Al Gore), which, having poured massive funding into putting Barack Obama in the White House, is reaping billions out of the Green agenda, which that mafia has convinced the Administration to put into law.

The leading figure in the Time story (March 15), by Michael Scherer, is one John Doerr, a Silicon Valley billionaire and business partner of Gore's, who has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Party, and sits on the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board (that's PERAB, nominally presided over by Paul Volcker). According to Time, at a November meeting of the PERAB, President Obama essentially turned the meeting over to Doerr, who is heavily invested in green technology, so that he could present his so-called "Cash for Caulkers" program, Home Star, in December—allegedly in the interest of providing jobs.

Does the Obama Administration not know that the whole idea of "green jobs" is a total fraud? That it has been documented, without doubt, that the creation of such jobs—especially in solar and wind power—costs more money, and jobs, than it produces?

Of course, it does. The "green jobs" program is simply a populist way of trying to sell a global depopulation program, the same agenda promoted by the now-discredited Global Warming mafia. What "entrepreneurs" like Doerr are doing, is profiteering off a program of genocide, which is the only possible result of their so-called energy plan.

The Fraud Exposed

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has forced the Environmental Protection Agency to release hundreds of pages of documents, proving that they engaged in a coverup to protect the hoax they call "green jobs." According to a CEI report by senior fellow Christopher Horner:

In March 2009, King Juan Carlos University in Madrid conducted a study of the Spanish "green jobs" scene, and concluded it was nothing more than a bubble, sucking in government subsidies, and returning virtually nothing. Specifically, the Spanish report said that Obama could expect a loss of nine jobs for every four created, a ratio of 2.2:1 in the loss column. This hit Obama hard, since he often referred to "what's happening in Spain, Germany," during his campaign, and afterward.

Right away, the bloggers at George Soros's Center for American Progress went to work attacking the report, and by August 2009, the Department of Energy had produced a five-page "talking points" workaround of the Spanish report, through the National Renewable Energy Lab in Boulder, Colo. The NREL is an extension of the Energy Efficiency Renewable Energy Office, run by former Al Gore associate and CEO of the Climate Action Project, Cathy Zoi.

Then, in September 2009, the Danish think tank Cepos (Center for Political Studies) has produced a report on wind power, coming to similar conclusions: that subsidies accounted for 175-250% of the worker's average pay, and that the sector as a whole underperformed, in terms of "value added per employee," by about 36%, compared to the industrial average.

What upset the Obama Administration most, however, was not the truth of the charges, but that the reports might threaten the involvement of the U.S. in the scheme, which would cause the bubble to burst. The 900-page FOIA release reveals late-night phone calls, meetings, and e-mails, during September, on the issue. Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) asked Zoi for clarification of several points in late September; she sent him a one-paragraph reply.

The Spanish wind market is controlled by Iberdrola Renovables (the world's largest wind power producer), which has a U.S. component, as well as a presence in 32 other countries. The head of the U.S. branch is Don Furman, who doubles as head of the "Big Wind" American Wind Energy Association.

Big Money...

Back to the Time exposé.

What Scherer asserts, is that the Obama Administration's green programs are basically the same phenomenon as that which came out of Vice President Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force of 2001. But, whereas Cheney's task force produced $14 billion for "drillers and miners in 2005," "Obama's greener advisers have helped produce six times that amount, much of it for the comparatively smaller reusable energy industry."

Scherer attributes Obama's green agenda to insiders like Doerr, who sit on the PERAB board. He details the huge contributions to the Democratic Party, or to Obama's activities by these insiders, among them, Chicago billionaire Penny Pritzker, who chaired Obama's 2009 campaign finance committee; UBS's Robert Wolf; and private-equity investor Mark Gallogly. Many of those on the PERAB, he says, benefit mightily from the green job policy they pushed. Now, Doerr and his allies are trying to push it through Congress, complete with its subsidies for green-energy providers such as Silver Spring Networks, and iControl, both Doerr interests.

... And Genocide

But, let's look at the larger picture, the one that Time does not touch.

Billionaire Doerr, who made his fortune in the Silicon Valley dot-coms, is in a close partnership with Al Gore. They agree on blood-sucking for profit, defining green investments as the "biggest economic opportunity of the 21st Century." While their alliance began in the political arena, it became a business interest by no later than 2007, when they began to serve on each others' boards.

In November 2007, Gore joined the board of Doerr's California company, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers (KPCB); and Doerr joined the International Advisory Board of Gore's London company, Generation Investment Management. KPCB and Generation are partners in numerous investment initiatives, and Doerr co-sponsors Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection.

Neither Gore nor Doerr are important as individuals: They are simply tools for the Genocide Lobby which has been created by the British oligarchy over centuries. Today's leading spokesman for this anti-human bunch—which claims that it is people who must be eliminated in order to aid the environment—is Royal Consort Prince Philip, the cofounder of the World Wildlife Fund, who personally patronized Gore from the 1980s on. Other financial interests around the royal family, including the Rothschilds, have also provided significant funding for the promotion of the anti-human green ideology.

Take the World Resources Institute, a leading purveyor of the "scarce natural resources" line, which is used to suppress living standards and human life itself. Today the chairman is James A. Harmon, an American who is a senior advisor to the Rothschild Group in London. Doerr's partner Gore is also on the board of World Resources Institute, which pushes his Global Warming hoax, among other projects.
