Green Party Accuses Obama of Being Traitor









The Green Party of America has accused President Elect Barack Obama of pandering to corporations and “warhawks” with the appointments of Rahm Emanuel, his choice of vice president such as Joseph Biden, nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General, and former Governor of Iowa Vilsack for Agriculture Secretary.

Cliff Thornton who is the spokesperson for the Green Party of the USA accused the emerging Obama Administration of not living to its promise of change. He also revealed the records of each of the nominees. The following was taken from the Green Party USA Press Release.

“Greens called Mr. Obama’s choice of Rahm Emanuel for White House Chief

of Staff especially unfortunate, citing Mr. Emanuel’s position as

managing director of investment banks Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein,

earning him $18 million between 1999 and 2002 and his track record in

Congress since 2003. The appointment of Mr. Emanuel confirms Mr. Obama’s pledge to AIPAC that he will maintain the same uncritical support for Israel as the

Clinton and Bush administrations, whose policies resulted in

increasing human rights violations against Palestinians and greater

instability in the region.  Mr. Emanuel was also one of the original

drafters of NAFTA and now favors similar antidemocratic ‘free trade’

pacts with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea which would cost more jobs and suppress environmental and labor protections.


Despite his reputation in the media as a defender of

working people, Mr. Biden helped draft a law signed by President Bush

that relaxed regulations on financial institutions, giving them more

power over Americans facing financial problems and transferring risk

from predatory lenders to borrowers.  As an architect of mandatory

minimum drug laws (including the RAVE Act), Sen. Biden helped put the

children of working families behind bars.


Among the corporate-connected names on the list for the Obama Cabinet

are Eric Holder, Jr. for Attorney General and former Iowa Gov. Tom

Vilsack for Secretary of Agriculture.  Mr. Holder is a partner at

Covington & Burling, which represents the National Football League,

Chiquita, and Merck, and Gov. Vilsack is an enthusiastic advocate of

genetically engineered crops and corn- and soy-based biofuels, with

ties to Monsanto, whose products and policies have destroyed

independent and family farms around the world.”


I am already making plans to invite the Green Party of America for an interview. There is no guarantee that they will reply. I will also check these reports by the Green Party of America and publish them.
