SELECTION OF HENRY PAULSON TO BE U.S.
TREASURY SECRETARY IS A VICTORY FOR THE BIG BUSINESS, BIG BANK, NEW WORLD
In his latest effort to consolidate his New World Order, Big Business
Establishment credentials, President Bush has named the Chairman of
Goldman Sachs to be his Treasury Secretary.
MRS. PAULSON GAVE $11,000 TO HILLARY
While Paulson served as a Bush “pioneer” in the 2004 campaign,
raising more than $100,000 for the President’s reelection, his wife,
Wendy, has contributed heavily to Democrats, including $11,000 to New York
Senator Hillary Clinton and her Political Action Committee. Most of the
$55,000 contributed by Mr. and Mrs. Paulson that went to Democrats came
from Wendy Paulson.
PAULSON PREFERS ENVIRONMENTALISM TO
Steven Milloy, portfolio manager of the Free Enterprise Action Fund,
says “Paulson is extremely weak on property rights. …He has
basically used corporate assets to pursue his personal interest. …When
the conservative base finds out what Paulson really stands for, they’re
going to be up in arms”.
According to the Free Enterprise Action Fund, in a shareholders
resolution earlier this year, Paulson “looted shareholder assets when
Goldman spent $35 million to buy land in Chile to donate to the Wildlife
Mr. Paulson, a fervent environmentalist who has been Chairman of the
Nature Conservancy, has actively supported the Kyoto “global warming”
Treaty, and backed Bill Bradley for President when the former New Jersey
Senator was a candidate in the Y2K campaign.
AS EHRLICHMAN SUBORDINATE PAULSON
HELPED PRESERVE “GREAT SOCIETY”
Paulson served, during the Nixon Administration, on the staff of RN’s
liberal Domestic Council chief, John Ehrlichman, at a time when Ehrlichman
did all he could to thwart my efforts to close down the $3 billion “Great
Society”, through which Federal funds were provided to promote “welfare
rights”, abortion, homosexual activism, Indian reservation
extra-territoriality, AZTLAN, and voting rights for illegal aliens, among
other dangerous policies.
PAULSON HAS PROFITED FROM HIS
COLLABORATION WITH CHINESE COMMUNISTS
Of particular concern is Paulson’s close relationship with the
leaders of Communist China. When Chicom Party Chief Hu Jintao visited the
White House recently, Paulson and his wife, Wendy, were invited to
participate in a private lunch with the Red Chinese boss.
HENRY PAULSON: BACKER OF CHUCK
SCHUMER, BILL BRADLEY, AND EMILY’S LIST
“ ‘EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest grassroots political
network, is dedicated to taking back our country form the radical right
wing by electing pro-choice Democratic women to federal, state, and local
office.’ That’s how Emily’s List describes itself. It surely doesn’t
sound like a group that shares President Bush’s stated goal of building
‘a culture of life.’ Yet Emily’s List is one of the groups
supported by Henry Paulson, the President’ s new nominee to be Secretary
of the Treasury. The Wall Streeter also backed the Senate campaign of New
York’s Chuck Schumer (Democrat-Liberal). Schumer has been led the
way in grilling any Bush judicial nominee he even suspects of ‘deeply
held beliefs’ that might include respect for human life.
“Of course, George W. Bush might not be president at all if Henry
Paulson’s choice had prevailed in 2000. Paulson donated to Sen. Bill
Bradley’s (D-NJ) presidential campaign. Bradley ran against
then-Vice President Al Gore (D) in the primaries - attacking Gore for
having formerly supported the idea that taxpayers should not be
forced to pay for abortions. The Bush Administration is reportedly long on
loyalty among its appointees: had Paulson had his political way, someone
besides the President and his party would now be doing the appointing and
confirming.” Source: Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council,
