FORMER SENATOR CHRIS DODD, NOW HEAD OF U.S. MOTION PICTURE ASSOCIATION

Chris Dodd served 36 years as Senator of Connecticut: 6 years in the House of Representatives and 30 years in the Senate.

Dodd’s father, Thomas Dodd, was also a member of the House of Representatives, and a Senator. He also served as an Ambassador to Costa Rica and Uruguay.

Significantly, Thomas Dodd was involved in the Nuremburg Trials of Nazi War Criminals after the Second World War.

He cross examined many prominent Nazis, and helped with the collection and presentation of evidence.

He was presented the Medal of Freedom, the Certificate of Merit, and the Czechoslovak Order of the White Lion.

Chris Dodd followed his father into politics, being elected to the Senate in 1980.

Dodd was instrumental in many pieces of key legislation:

– Family and Medical Leave Act, which included paid leave for carers, and a corporate carbon tax.

-Credit Card, Accountability, and Disclosure Act

-Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act, which means a sample of every child’s blood is taken at birth and stored without the parents consent.

-He was also on the Health, Education, Labour and Pensions Committee. As acting committee Chairman it was his job to get the Health Care Reform Bill passed.

Dodd’s career has not been without other controversy, he was caught up in the:

-Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac controversies

-Irish Cottage Controversy

– AIG federal assistance and bonuses controversy.

Dodd’s questionable activities have led political opponents to question his leadership and judgement for high office, with fellow Democrate Senator Roger Pearson saying,

“Senator Dodd stood up on the stage with President Obama when the President announced his healthcare plan and urged legislators to move forward with reform,”

Pearson said. “Now Chris Dodd has failed the President and failed us, lacking the leadership to push this most important initiative through.

“If Senator Dodd wasn’t so busy trying to distance himself from all the money he’s gotten from AIG, big healthcare companies and all the rest of the big money special interests, then maybe he could have spent time pushing healthcare,”

Dodd also worked closely with U.S. Representative for Massachusetts Democrat, Barney Frank.

Together they worked on the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, after the 2008 recession.

The act was meant to protect the economy from banks or corporations becoming “too big to fail”

Critics say the bill is not fit for purpose, and it is now stopping banks from lending money to small and medium sized businesses, and this is a major cause of the sluggish growth in the economy.

Dodd retired as a Senator before the 2010 mid-term elections. After seeing his poll rating plummet making it look highly unlikely he would win another term in office.

In March 2011 he accepted the role as Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

Dodd has been at the Cannes film festival promoting American films to the world.

As CEO of MPAA, Dodd was also one of the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)  and PIPA bills biggest supporters.

These anti-privacy bills would see websites containing illegal material banned and the sites blocked – technology used in nations like China and Iran to stifle free speech.

After widespread anger the bills were dropped last year, but Dodd has recently said, he believes the bills will be resurrected in some new form after the Presidential election, probably softening the implications of “theft”.

The MPAA wants (and needs) to gain control over the internet; they see it is as one of the most dangerous threats to their continued control over the entertainment industry.

Prophet TV have been exposing the political bias in the media.

The MPAA promotes American film and television worldwide.

The appointment of the liberal Dodd, to the position of CEO, strengthens the hold of the liberal elite on the media.

In America today the liberal left and the media are indistinguishable.

THE VETTING OF BARAK OBAMA

This is not turning out to be a good week for the President in terms of news stories, as Breitbart.com continue their vetting process.

Before his death, Andrew Breitbart said they were going to vet Obama in a way the media failed to do, before he was elected President.

So far, they have uncovered plenty about his past which should have been discussed 5 years ago.

The latest revelation is Obama’s biography in a promotional booklet, produced in 1991 by his literary-agent,

which describes Barak Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet promoted Obama’s first book, entitled “Journeys in Black and White”, but was never published.

Although it would be the agents job to write the biography, it is hard to believe Obama did not read what they wrote before going to print.

Breitbart always said he believed Obama was born in Hawaii, but argues that the booklet exposes Obama as creating a different persona, to suit his audience – one where it served him to be more racially exotic as a budding author? Or was Kenya his true birthplace?

COULD SAME SEX MARRIAGE SWING THE ELECTION?

After Obama and Biden came out in support of same sex marriage, Republican Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, clarified his views, saying “marriage is between a man and a woman”.

As the debate continues, pollsters wonder how this matter will impact the election.
We have a President who openly declares same-sex marriage is alright.  This would be unthought of a few years ago. It shows that American public opinion on homosexuality has been so programmed by the liberal left, that this appears to be no longer a problem, for the majority of American people.

Is that true, or will this become a major election issue? The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transexual community began to make progress in politics in San Francisco in the 1970’s with Harvey Milk……..

And Hollywood used it’s influence to program the minds of the youth with pro-sodomite imagery. With this level of political endorsement and the continual bombardment of homosexual and lesbian propaganda,……. consider what the attitude of YOUR children will be towards same-sex marriage?

This is why Prophet TV needs to be in key media areas, and why we have established a gateway in San Francisco. We must break the spirit controlling these regions which impact the entire nation and the world.

Greece: Chaotic Mess Results from the Country’s Election

The two leading parties in Greece have seen their support plummet and are unable to form a coalition, with 70% of the of the electorate voting for parties who are against the EU/IMF bailout.
The recession in Greece has seen the Greek GDP shrink by 13% in two years, many believe the harshness of the EU imposed austerity is to blame for the depth of the recession.
Furthermore unemployment is sitting at 21% and climbing, with official poverty levels in Greece at 27.7%.
The Greek people are desperate for change, but some economists have warned an exit from the Euro would result in an 80% reduction in the Greek standard of living.
Greece is a comparatively young democracy, and was ruled by a military junta until 1974.
The far left and far right are growing in popular support.
For a nation hurting and feeling humiliated these are tense times.
If the politicians cannot form a workable coalition another election in June will be required.
The uncertainty, along with the French election vote, has resulted in turmoil in the European markets, and has destabilised the situation further in Portugal and Spain.
Also in Europe in the past week the Dutch and Romanian governments collapsed with their politicians unable to agree to the necessary austerity measures.
If Greece pull out of the EU/IMF bail out and default on their debts, the domino affect would cause an economic tsunami across the globe.
With the Greek economy the size of Minnesota, that may sink the rest of Europe and by consequence America.
