Anyone have insurance with Progressive?

Anyone have insurance with Progressive? I’ll think even worse about
that stupid commercial with the crazy girl in the white dress from
now on!

PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE is owned by Peter Lewis: Who is he? Read
this…VERY IMPORTANT INFO TO PASS TO EVERYONE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR
COUNTRY.

You’ve seen and smiled at the Progressive Insurance TV commercials.
Well, you’re about to learn the rest of the story:

PROGRESSIVE AUTO INSURANCE

You know their TV commercials, the ones featuring the
ditsy actress all dressed in white. What you might not know is that
the Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the major funders
of leftist causes in America . Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled
$15 million to the ACLU, the group most responsible for destroying
what’s left of Americas Judeo-Christian
heritage. Lewis also gave $12.5 million to MoveOn.org
and American Coming Together, two key propaganda arms of the
socialist left. His funding
for these groups was conditional on matching contributions from George  Soros,
the America-hating socialist who is the chief
financier of the Obama political machine.
Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism, but now finances a
progressive movement that threatens to destroy the American free
enterprise system that is
targeting television shows on Fox News.

Peter Lewis is making a fortune off of conservative Americans (who
buy his auto insurance) that he applies
to dismantle the very system that made him wealthy. He’s banking on
no one finding out who he is, so,
STOP buying Progressive Insurance and pass this information on to all  your
friends.

MoveOn.org Backs Palestinians against Israel

Supports Palestinian Right of Return, Blames Israel for Breaking Off Peace Talks, Quotes Electronic Intifada
by Bill Levinson

We came across this through Clifford Lazar’s site. It seems that http://www.moveon.org/moveonbulletin/bulletin19.html (MoveOn.org official bulletin by Noah Winer) turned out to be so embarrasing to MoveOn.org that MoveOn.org took it down. Thanks to web.archive.org, however, we can present our readers with highlights of MoveOn.org’s official position (they can’t blame this one on the Action Forum) about the Palestinians and Israel.

NOTE: In response to feedback about this bulletin, MoveOn.org would like to clarify that The MoveOn Bulletin is a free weekly collection of links, which represent a broad range of views on important political issues. These links aren’t meant to represent the position of MoveOn.org.

We beg to differ. Noah T. Winer is the editor of this bulletin and, as an official representative of MoveOn.org, he is entirely responsible for the content of the page. By posting the indicated links in the context of advocacy as opposed to condemnation, he, and therefore MoveOn.org, are indeed endorsing the indicated positions. In addition, it already seems that MoveOn.org was getting heat over this from pro-Israel people, and the above paragraph shows exactly why MoveOn.org felt compelled to take the bulletin offline. After recovering the material from archive.org, we are hardly surprised. It begins by blaming Israel for breaking off the peace talks:

INTRODUCTION: WHERE DOES THE ROAD MAP LEAD?
In July, 2000 Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak broke off talks with Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat at the Camp David summit hosted by U.S. President Bill Clinton. That September, Ariel Sharon, chairman of the Likud party, made a provocative visit to the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Control over this holy site for both Muslims and Jews is contested by Palestinians and Israelis. The visit implied Israeli sovereignty over all Jerusalem, the eastern portion of which is considered occupied territory by the international community. So began the second intifada, or Palestinian uprising.

As in the first intifada in the late 1980s, the demand is for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem — which has persisted since 1967 — and acknowledgment of the Palestinian refugees right to return to the villages from which they were forced to leave during the 1948 war that established the State of Israel. In the 33 months since, human death has saturated the region: 816 Israelis and 2,384 Palestinians have been killed.

Early in his presidency, George W. Bush avoided substantial involvement in the Israel-Palestine conflict. After September 11, 2001 a number of factors — escalating violence in the area and Israel’s attempt to link September 11th with Palestinian suicide bombings, pressure from the Israel lobby and the Christian Right, and the desire for an increasing U.S. influence in the oil-rich Middle East — prompted Bush to take an active, personal role in promoting an agreement.

That proposed agreement is the Road Map. While the initiative has been praised for calling for an end to violence and for endorsing the formation a Palestinian state, the Road Map provides no mechanism for actually ending the violence, leaves uncertain the borders of the proposed state, and postpones determining the status of the 380,000 Israeli settlers and four million Palestinian refugees. With matters so central to the resolution of the conflict left to be decided at a future date or ignored entirely, the Road Map is still far from being a bona fide peace proposal.

True and lasting peace begins with justice for all the people of the region. That the Road Map will lead in that direction is not at all evident.

CRITIQUE
From the only joint Palestinian-Israeli public policy think-tank in the world:
“The Road Map is severely lacking in detail. It mentions that the sides will have to negotiate the permanent status issues such as borders, Jerusalem, settlements, refugees, etc. but makes almost no mention of these issues throughout the process in the earlier phases.”
http://www.ipcri.org/files/roadmapgb.html

From the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz:
“According to the facts on the ground, the [Palestinian] ’state’ will apparently be comprised of three enclaves cut off from one another inside the West Bank — in addition to the Gazan enclave, and with no guarantee the settlements inside the enclave will be dismantled. The ’separation fence’ has been described as ‘temporary,’ but it is a wall with hefty fortifications taking up a lot of land, and it has already scarred the Tul Karm-Qalqiliyah area, the most prosperous Palestinian farmland, thus sabotaging one of the cornerstones of Palestinian economic security.”
http://www.moveon.org/r?456

From The Nation:
“For in failing to focus on the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, about to enter its 37th year, and on Israeli settlements, which underpin that occupation, the Road Map misses an opportunity to end this conflict. Instead, it concentrates on Palestinian violence and how to combat it — as if it came out of nowhere, and as if, were it to be halted, the situation of occupation and settlement would be normal.”

From the Nation: “Blame the Jooooooooooooooz.”

FACTS ON THE GROUND: TERRORISM

http://www.gush-shalom.org/archives/article254.html

An Israeli parliament member and 25 former Israeli generals have raised questions about the timing of Sharon’s assassination attempt.
http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0612-05.htm

Senator Dick Lugar (R-Indiana), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has raised the possibility of U.S. military intervention “to root out the terrorism that is at the heart of the problem.”
http://www.moveon.org/r?453

Quoting Gush Shalom, are we? Let’s digress a bit and show what Gush Shalom supports:

Aims of Gush Shalom

The primary aim of Gush Shalom is to influence Israeli public opinion and lead it towards peace and conciliation with the Palestinian people, based on the following principles:

Putting an end to the occupation,

Accepting the right of the Palestinian people to establish an independent and sovereign State of Palestine in all the territories occupied by Israel in 1967,

...Establishing Jerusalem as the capital of the two states, with East Jerusalem (including the Haram al-Sharif) serving as the capital of Palestine and West Jerusalem (including the Western Wall) serving as the capital of Israel. T

Recognizing in principle the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees, allowing each refugee to choose freely between compensation and repatriation to Palestine and Israel, and fixing by mutual agreement the number of refugees who will be able to return to Israel in annual quotas, without undermining the foundations of Israel.

The above is the position of the source that MoveOn.org is promoting, and that of Electronic Intifada (see below) is even worse. Now we return to MoveOn.org’s official bulletin by Noah T. Winer.

FACTS ON THE GROUND: OUTPOSTS AND SETTLEMENTS
From the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz:
“Don’t make do with the outposts. There are more than 100 of them, and about 60 went up in Sharon’s days. If he takes down 7-10 he hasn’t done a thing. Many were put up just to pull them out, like a goat from a crowded corral.”
http://www.moveon.org/r?454

From The Nation:
“A recent poll by Israel’s Jaffee Institute for Strategic Studies shows that 56 percent of Israelis — up from 48 percent last year — would ’support a unilateral withdrawal from the territories in the context of a peace accord, even if that meant ceding all settlements.’ Here is the signpost for a realistic road map that could be charted by the Bush Administration.”
http://www.thenation.com/doc.mhtml?i=20030630&s=carey

This is the “realistic road map” that MoveOn.org seems to support.

FACTS ON THE GROUND: THE SEPARATION WALL
Gush Shalom reports that the separation wall Israel is constructing in the West Bank is not at all along the internationally recognized 1967 “green line” border. The wall, officially being built for security, annexes illegal settlements into Israel.
http://www.gush-shalom.org/thewall/

A troubling report on the 25-foot tall separation wall from Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot describes how the system of barbed concrete walls and armed watchtowers will imprison hundreds of thousands of Palestinians without access to their agricultural lands.
http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article1546.shtml

The Palestinian Society for the Protection of Human Rights and the Environment on legal efforts to block the wall.
http://www.lawsociety.org/Press/Preleases/2002/oct/oct15e.html

Res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself. In the above MoveOn.org bulletin, edited by Noah T. Winer, MoveOn.org endorses the following positions:
(1) Israel is responsible for breaking off the peace talks
(2) The “occupation” is responsible for the Palestinians’ violent behavioral choices
(3) The security wall is bad and “imprisons” Palestinians
(4) Israel should cede the settlements unilaterally
(5) The Palestinians have a “right of return”
(6) MoveOn.org promotes positions taken by Gush Shalom and the Electronic Intifada (the same organization that accused Israel of “murdering” Rachel Corrie)

This is hardly inconsistent with Mr. Winer’s bulletin that accuses “Zionists” of divided loyalties–a smear also quite common on MoveOn’s disgraced Action Forum–while citing a known anti-Semitic source (Christison).

PAX ISRAELICA?
Nearly all PNAC participants, whether Jewish or Christian, are right-wing Zionists who support Ariel Sharon’s Likud Party. In 1996, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and others drafted a paper for incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urging him to make “a clean break” from the Oslo peace process preferring “peace through strength,” including the ouster of Saddam Hussein.
http://www.israeleconomy.org/strat1.htm

This essay describes many of the familiar neo-conservatives as having “dual loyalties,” making policy decisions in the interests of the State of Israel as much as the United States.

Will MoveOn.org chant “No blood for George Soros?”

Will MoveOn.org chant “No blood for George Soros?”

Dr. Soros-stein Betrays his Monster, buys 1.9 million shares of Halliburton
by Bill Levinson


George Soros should remember those scenes from those old black and white horror movies in which the monster discovers that its creator has betrayed it–and MoveOn should remember what happens to those who bite the hand that feeds them.

Dr. Frankenstein Betrays his Monster
Reuters reports, “Soros also added 1.9 million shares of Halliburton (HAL.N)”

Now the MoveOn.org people who chant “No blood for Halliburton” can chant “No blood for Soros” instead.

MoveOn.org Bites its Sugar Daddy’s Hand
https://pol.moveon.org/donate/halliburton.html

While soldiers are dying in Iraq, Dick Cheney’s old company Halliburton has overcharged the government millions and charged for meals for the troops which were never delivered. We need to raise $1.1 million to get a new ad exposing the Bush Administration’s ties to Halliburton on the air. Please help by contributing below.

Here is what MoveOn.org’s ad script says about the company in which its patron, George Soros, is now a major shareholder.

Ad Script
…AUDIO
ANNOUNCER (VO): But Halliburton wanted more. They overcharged millions for gasoline. Worse, they charged hundreds of millions of dollars for meals for our troops that they never delivered.

VIDEO
CUT BACK TO THE DOMED SILVER TRAY. THE BUTLER RAISES IT AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME WE SEE STACKS OF MONEY.

AUDIO
ANNOUNCER (VO): And George Bush is still doing business with them.

And now MoveOn.org benefactor George Soros owns 1.9 million shares of the same company.

We do not have any problems with Halliburton or Soros’ ownership of its stock, but MoveOn.org obviously does. Now, either MoveOn.org is asking its members and supportors for money to propagate lies about Halliburton, or MoveOn.org is telling the truth. Let us examine each of these cases by itself, without passing any judgment on the merits of either. We don’t have to in order to prove our case.

(1) MoveOn.org is lying about Halliburton
If MoveOn.org is lying about Halliburton, then it is asking its prospective supporters to donate up to $2000 on false pretenses. This should be enough to make every single rank-and-file member quit in disgust. We remind MoveOn of what happened to Soros’ other organization, the Million Mom March, when it came out that the organization was soliciting money under false pretenses.

(2) MoveOn.org is telling the truth about Halliburton
If MoveOn.org is telling the truth about Halliburton, then its patron George Soros has bought 1.9 million shares of the same “evil company.” It may also be noted that Soros is a major backer of Barack Obama, to whom he and members of his family gave $60,000 to support his Senate primary.

Now our question to both MoveOn.org and George Soros, and we are sure the nation’s entire progressive community wants a prompt and unambiguous answer, is as follows: Did MoveOn.org solicit donations from its followers by lying about Halliburton, or is it telling the truth about the company whose stock its benefactor just purchased?

Now here is a bonus piece of information:

As WND reported, another outspoken leftist who had criticized Halliburton was discovered to own stock in the company – filmmaker Michael Moore.
