More disturbing developments in the creation of Obama's brown green shirts. The Apollo Alliance is recruiting for a "green" army:
You'll recall the Apollo Alliance claims to have written the Cap & Trade legislation as well as the Stimulus Bill; this according to Glenn Beck. The former "Green Jobs Czar" and self-professed Communist Van Jones sat on the Board of the AA. The New York State Apollo Alliance Director is Jeffery Jones, co-founder with William Ayers of the Weather Underground. Now these enemies-within-the-gates are recruiting our veterans. Part of Barry's enforcement crew? Retired military can be intimidating to civilians if they choose. (hat tip Deb)
two green jobs programs—Veterans Green Jobs of Colorado and the Veterans Conservation Corps of Washington state—and the recently launched “Operation Free” campaign that has veterans touring the country to call for federal action on climate change. Veterans Green Jobs runs a 9-week “Home Energy Auditor Training” (HEAT) for veterans, using a rapid, hands-on “military” style of training ....
Deb notes, "Since our veterans are already trained, I'm assuming they will be training civilians to control belligerent citizens, etc".
“We think veterans are uniquely qualified to lead the environmental restoration here at home,” said Kirsten Maynard of Veterans Green Jobs. “Not only have they seen environmental destruction across the world; they also have technical skills and other kinds of work skills that allow them to do the really tough work that needs to be done - like go into homes and crawl in the attic and the basement. They’ve been trained by the military to do it, and they actually feel comfortable being in that kind of environment.” (Deb: Am I the only one wondering if homeowners' permission will be required for anyone, let alone retired military, to be crawling around their attics and basements? Where would YOU store the survival provisions and ammo? Just asking....)
The Veterans Conservation Corps has also inaugurated a new program, called Veterans Corps, which is modeled on the AmeriCorps program. (Deb: Lots of folks think Barry's civilian national security force will be recruited from AmericCorps.)
“It’s a revitalization of a mission they had in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Mark Fischer, who runs the Veterans Conservation Corps. “Once they left the military, that mission is gone, and it’s a big loss. When they lose that purpose it can be disheartening and disorienting. We try to create a meaningful job - for a purpose-driven life.”
(Deb: Note the quasi-religious tone here -- Minister Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Life.")
