WHO IS GROVER NORQUIST AND WHY SHOULD YOU KNOW HIM?
Grover Norquist is the reason President Obama and Republicans cannot go to work on the failing U.S. Economy. Aside from having one of the most corrupt reputations in Washington as a lobbyist and backstabber, for decades he has worked mostly to promote extreme right-wing causes. He has earned millions from Wall St., the four largest banks, Big Pharma, and Fortune 100 companies. Far right-wing religious organizations also fund Norquist. His millions are protected by foundations and overseas banks. No one knows his net worth because it is hidden overseas.

You probably remember Grover Norquist from a few years back being a central player in the Jack Abramoff scandal where he used his connections to launder $1 million from Abramoff’s Indian tribe clients to conservative activist Ralph Reed and Christian groups.

The only reason he didn't go to prison was because he sought out and accepted immunity from prosecution in exchange for ratting out Abramoff and giving up dirt on several members of Congress.

So how is Grover Norquist the central player in Obama's failure to negotiate with House and Senate Republican's? Again, to simplify, Norquist saw a opportunity with the "Tea Party" and he sold them the idea that he and his organization "American's for Tax Reform" could empower the Tea Party and stop President Obama and House Dems from working together by him promoting the "Taxpayer Protection Pledge", which was signed by 95% of all Republican Congressmen. Republican Congressmen signed the pledge to insure Norquists corporate backers would financially support their re-election campaigns.

The pledge opposes increases in marginal income tax rates for individuals and businesses. But it gives Norquist blackmail power against the GOP. Norquist has the goods on the GOP and he publicly says that he will ruin any republican congressman if they break Norquist's signed pledge agreement.

So there you go, Norquist (one man), has power over the U.S. Government because the GOP is afraid of him. For the past 4 years our leaders in Washington have not been able to compromise to pass any legislation and our economy is directly effected by it.

He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and you know who they are, and who calls the shots, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, George HW Bush, Dick Cheney just to name a few.

A PARTIAL LIST OF NORQUIST BACKERS: Alcoa, American Express, AIG, Bank of America, BP Oil, Chevron, Citigroup, Christian Coalition, Coca Cola, Comcast, Deutsche Bank, Exxon/Mobil, FedEx, Focus on the family, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Halliburton, JP Morgan, Lockeed Martin, Merck, Merrill Lynch, Nasdaq, News Corp, Shell Oil, Pfizer, and Verizon.

For more on this scumbag google him, he is our biggest national threat.

Whether you are a democrat or a republican, you should be very concerned about Grover Norquist, and how he is interfering with our government's ability to fix our economy.

I have been railing about this asshole for 5 years or so. He obviously is a clear and present danger to the health of the US. Have you read "Starve the Beast"? If not you should it clearly documents the political history of the US since 2001. Especially, the Congressional scene.

Not to worry, the Beast, like all beasts from Byzantine to Rome to Britain, will starve itself. It's inevitable. It's the evolution of humanity, a sort of economic natural order.

Twenty-five hundred years ago most Romans could conceive nothing more grand than their opulent existence, and now portly tourists tromp over the ruins of the Acropolis with seventy dollar, ten mega-pixel cameras in hand.

It's sort of interesting to be living during the fall of an empire.

Grover Norquist calls it "The Pledge" but let us call it what it really is: the instrument of blackmail against the 95% of republicans who signed it.

There will be no compromise between President Obama and House Republican's until Grover Norquist is shutdown.

Until that time, every American will suffer the consequences of a tanking economy.

The Petraeus Affair is probably linked to GN. The modus opprandi is clearly that of this whart. Why would Gen Patraeus suddenly come out the way he did? Obviously, someone who knew about this was attempting to blackmail him. Benghazi? One doesn't know but clearly the resignation was an attempt to stop the blackmailer in his tracks. Why would the Gen not simply resign claiming health issues etc..? The way this was handled clearly points to the use of this impropriety being used to try and get the Gen to do something which was so outrageous he chose this method to stop them.

I watched the 60 minutes episode when it aired. It was shocking, how so many repubublicans signed his no tax pledge.
It is the reason there is not compromise in congress. So why is this not huge? How can a congress get things done if they are not willing to work together?

Yes, this Grover man is evil. He actually is proud of what he has done! He is one sick puppy.

Yes. Generally, I am opposed to the use of drones on civilians....innocent civilians, that is. But hey, using drones against enemies of the republic....especially those inside the gates, seems quite appropriate.

Next time the Bilderberg clowns get together, I'd say protesters should stay far away...just in case someone decent in the military or even CIA decides to use the drones properly...in defense of the republic.
