The rabbit hole, indoctrination and Obama Youth

"He said red, yellow, black or white/All are equal in his sight. Barack Hussein Obama."

Yep. That’s great.

So now that we have the Obama Youth, how long before we have children informants, camps for political prisoners and all the other goodies that showed up in the last country, which got involved with National Socialism.

I don’t know. It is a catchy tune – and I love the way they’ve rewritten the Christian hymn. I especially like the part where the kiddies sing "He said we must be clear today/Equal work means equal pay."

Oh, so much fun. They had a countdown in New Jersey before they had the children break into the new tune – kind of like what NASA does before a launch. And this, along with eight other skits, was allegedly performed during “black history month.” But whether that is simply to divert from the obvious question of indoctrination, is an obvious, albeit painful question.

The author of the little ditty hasn’t come forward or otherwise been identified, and that’s a shame. The world will benefit so much from the verse such an artist would no doubt produce. Art Galleries and Museums would be erected in their name – right next to the Barack Hussein Obama National Headquarters for Marxism and Socialist Studies, which would be across the street from the new “Dictators r’ Us” department store.

The video saw its’ online debut by Charisse Carney-Nunes, an activist and author of the children's book "I Am Barack Obama." Nunes is the founder of “Brand Nu Words, a publishing company, which according to her website is “dedicated to telling unique stories for children and families.”

Another story, which could not be confirmed, suggested Nunes, allegedly created the vid as a father’s day tribute to Obama classmate at Harvard.

The whole Harvard thing is a fun angle. Let’s take a little romp around Nunes world, shall we?

Nunes is VP of the Jamestown Project, which according to the description on the organization’s website, is “a diverse action-oriented think tank of new leaders who reach across boundaries and generations to make democracy real.”

Thank God. They’re saving us all.

Wait! There’s more.

“Founded and operated primarily by people of color and women,” reads the website overview, “the Jamestown Project consists of scholars, activists and communities who use five broad strategies to achieve our mission: generating new ideas; promoting meaningful public conversations and engagement; cultivating new leaders; formulating political strategy and public policy; and using cutting-edge communications techniques that reach a broad public.”

If you dance around on that website for a while, you will no doubt, come across some real gems of information, but what I found most interesting was a tree.

An Ogle-tree to be exact.

Charles J. Ogletree is the Harvard Law School Jesse Climenko Professor of Law and Founding and Executive Director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice. The Jamestown site calls him a “prominent legal theorist who has made an international reputation by taking a hard look at complex issues of law and by working to secure the rights guaranteed by the Constitution for everyone equally under the law.”

Wow. He’s the man. In fact, he’s the man who has been referred to as the college mentor of Barack Obama. But he’s also a trustee of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, chaired by Sheila P. Burke. And Sheila is an amazing character.

Let’s look at Sheila’s list of occupations: She’s been on the faculty at Georgetown University Public Policy Institute, she’s been an advisory council member for the Center for State Health Policy, she’s been a member of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, she’s been the director of the Partnership for Public Service, she’s been the Deputy Secretary and COO of the Smithsonian Instituton, she’s been a trustee on the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, Executive Dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government, member of the Kaiser Commission on the Future of Medicaid and the Uninsured, trustee of the University of San Francisco, member of the Institute of Medicine, Director of Wellpoint Inc. and the Chubb Corporation. Oh yeah – and she was a secretary at the U.S. Senate, where Senator William H. Frist used to work – and he’s also on the board at Kaiser.

Incidentally, Chubb Corp. is the eleventh largest property and casualty insurer in the world, with over 120 offices located in 29 countries, and is a large, U.S. based health insurance company and the largest member of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

How about them apples?

But Sheila was also Chief of Staff for Bob Dole, who was the majority leader at the U.S. Senate and once remarked, “There is no crisis in health care." It’s strange how the world works.

Another trustee listed at Kaiser is Cokie Roberts, of ABC News fame, who is the director of the Partnership for Public Service, at which dear Sheila is also a director – but when you look up Cokie you find an amazing collection of folks.

Cokie has been involved in the following: Pew Partnership for Civic Change, National Public Radio, ABC News and the Foundation for the National Archives.

The Pew Partnership for Civic Change on which Cokie is an advisory board member, is (according to their website), “a civic research organization that provides consulting and program support to communities, governments, foundations, and nonprofit agencies.” They help clients “identify and implement solutions and strategies crucial to making communities stronger.”

An advisory member of Pew is Marsha Johnson Evans who was a director at Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., which was called by Fortune Magazine “One of the biggest calamities of the current recession.” She was also the CEO of the American Red Cross from 2002 to 2005 just prior to the Dole Presidential campaign. Although some claims were made that Evans resignation from ARC was related to the Red Cross' Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, Evans in fact, cited difficulties in dealing with the Board of Governors.

Evans was also a director of the Huntsman Corporation, which leads to Chesapeake Enterprises, an 11 lobby firm with all kinds of connections including a few Indian tribes and the Oracle Corporation, etc. Huntsman also leads to the Ben Barnes Group, which lobbies for Energy Recovery Technology, Transglobal Petroleum, Glo-Fish-Yorktown Technologies, Williams Bailey, Dynamotive USA, Weatherford International Ltd., American Airlines, Patient Privacy Rights Foundation, Search Light Minerals Corp., Behavioral Recognition Systems, Life Sciences Research Inc. and Novacentrix Corporation, just to name a few.

The rabbit hole is endless, dear reader. But remember, this all connects back to Ogletree, the Jamestown Project and a lady who wrote some Obama books for children and was somehow involved in that production in Jersey with the snappy tunes replacing the name of Jesus with that of our dear President.

Oddly, this particular rabbit hole all leads to Charisse Carney Nunes.

There’s only one problem with this rabbit hole, however. Unlike the one Alice fell into, this one doesn’t seem to provide an opportunity to wake up.
