Egypt’s current situation is no laughing matter. But its about to get worse thanks to the Russians. Today Real Clear Politics had a video that showed Vladimir Putin having trouble starting Europe’s “cheapest car”. It’s the Lada Granta. The Lada line includes the worst car in history, the Lada Riva. There are still a ton of these wretched cars in north Africa. As a matter of fact North Africa is where all failed auto models go. (future home of the Chevy Volt) But new developments give this story the potential to be hilarious.
First off, the Lada line is produced by AutoVAZ. They have a factory in Egypt which they rent from Suzuki. Last month AutoVAZ announced that it would expand in north Africa. From the release: “The expansion of the brand in foreign markets is likely to take place in both Egypt, where AutoVAZ is said to plan the expansion of the local facility and even building a new one near Jordan, and in South America”. Notice they say “the local facility” not “their” facility. That is owned by Suzuki.
Nothing but the best for Egypt
The Lada line of cars is so notoriously bad that it was featured multiple times on the UK tv show Top Gear; where it lost a race to a dog…seriously. Also named one top ten cars that should never have been built (Hysterical video below) The Muslim Brotherhood is rising in power in Egypt, and maybe an influx of more bad cars will cause them to focus on developing stronger forces in the Caucuses to fight Russia for this great injustice. After all, the rag-tag terrorists like Hunafa could use some help. They literally spend all day in the woods walking around with machine guns and Korans. (Go check their site, Im not kidding)
Top Gear Communist Cars (Must See-Hysterical)
Will the radicals seek to avenge the great injustice of having more shitty cars? Probably not. The North African car market is the equivalent of the “island of misfits toys” and they have been getting the worlds junk for, well, a long time. And they may be complacent. But if the jihadis decide to take up this cause then these are the jerks that will be doing the fighting.
Caucus Radical Losers
The video opens with a quote from the Koran taken from Surah 3 verse 140. “If ye have received a blow, the (disbelieving) people have received a blow the like thereof. (This refers to Badr) These are (only) the vicissitudes which We cause to follow one another for mankind, to the end that Allah may know those who believe and may choose witnesses (martyrs) from among you; and Allah loveth not wrong-doers” In italics are the footnotes from the Pickthall English translation; the only translation approved by Islamic scholars
When he is being buried (1:40) the verse cited is the Qu’ran verse surah 9:111 which I quote “Lo! Allah hath brought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden (Eden) will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay the and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him int the Torah and the Gospel and the Qu’ran. Who fulfilleth his covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.
Frequently, new politically active non-profit groups emerge, and after a quick once over look of the board members it is usually blatantly obvious what philosophical category the group falls into. However, one that has been somewhat innocuous is 25×25.
Their objective is to increase renewable energy to be 25% of total US energy consumption within 25 years. Imagine that. It can be achieved if we cut ourselves down to the standards of a third world nation. There are thousands of groups like this with similar goals. Anyone who follows the Climate Change debate can probably name a handful off of the top of their head. So how is 25×25 different?
Was it the fact that the original bill proposing the co2 reductions bears the signature of our current President (then Senator) or the current Secretary of State? Not at all.
What caught my attention and raised suspicion is where I found all of the group’s files. They seemed misplaced. Not only were these files absent from their own site and its “directory”, all of the internal documents of this Green group were placed in the “Parent Directory” of the AFTFACE directory. AFTFACE is the American Federation of Teachers Faculty and College Excellence.
However, it does make sense if you go back and read AFT president Randi Weingarten’s statements. Their association with green groups tells how the union could benefit; then the story starts to speak for itself.
IMPORTANT: The rest of this post contains documents taken from AFTFACE website directory; while they still had the directory available with public access. Although the directory and folders originally had public access, these documents were not directly accessible while visiting the AFTFACE site-no links existed; these were in “storage”.
Lets start with the politicians (including then Senator Obama and Senator Clinton) that signed off on the 25×25 legislation. Click image for full document.

The above document is dated January 2007. Shortly after this document (hosted on the one of the AFT/Teacher’s Union Website) the AFT released their “Building Minds, Minding Buildings” report with its focus on building “green” schools with “green jobs”. Out of nowhere the Teacher’s Union was especially interested in “green jobs”. Why? I’ll show you shortly with private letters from the teachers union lobbying for green jobs in recent legislation concerning foreclosures on homeowners. Click on image below for “Building Minds, Minding Buildings” report. (Again-in storage on AFTFACE’s “parent directory”)

In the Introduction, signed by Randi Weingarten, the AFT expresses its concern over making buildings conform to LEED standards. This week, a blog on Forbes took a look at LEED certified buildings and found some terrible flaws; it turns out the new regulation standards actually cost more $$$. Via a report from Fast Company citing that the buildings are actually “Energy Hogs”
Anyways back to the the “Green Jobs Act” of 2007; it seemed to be helping out more than just the tree-huggers. The “FAQ” sheet hosted on the AFTFACE website outlines who helped draft this legislation. (click image for full document)

Money from All Over spread out All Over
After the Green Jobs Act of 2007 the AFT president Randi Weingarten started talking up the importance of going green. Even in H.R. 3221 (a housing and anti-foreclosure bill) they were touting the importance of “green jobs” even though a brief of the bill doesnt mention anything about green jobs here (govtrack) or here. But the Union letter to all house members mentions it on the bottom of page 2 under “Community Colleges”

When Capitalism just wont work…Socialism is the answer
To the informed it’s not a surprise to learn that the Teacher’s Union as well as other Unions are not at all capitalists. However, this is usually an assertion that is just made from those “right-wing lunatics” (like Beck, who are right nearly 100% of the time). But it is quite different when you see them say it in their own words. The following entries/documents show the breakdown of the AFT with the AFL-CIO and other organizations, the denouncing of freedom and capitalism, and the Teacher’s Unions open invitation for staff to attend the leftists US Social Forum. Lets Roll!
#1 The invitation for AFTFACE members (same site hosting all these “green files) to attend the US Social Forum.
and then there is the video invitation…from the above screen cap…to get faculty to join with the same group that receives praise from Hugo Chavez. Make sure you take to the streets and push for totalitarian control; sell out generations of freedom for next weeks paycheck!
Here is the AFT’s Political Action Report. Notice the group that prides itself on helping children doent have the childrens needs listed once in this report. Its all about members and advancing union power. (Clicking both images brings you to the same file)

But Wait there’s More!
In a 2007 interview AFT president Randi Weingarten said “…schooling is important for all kids. There is universal acknowledgement of that now. It used to be just us progressives that said that!” (pg. 18 of document below). Its an interesting interview that trashes capitalism and achievement and later, quoting from page 27, “We cede some of our individual rights to have collective responsibility and representative democracy (I thought we were a representative republic). Thats not Socialism; (yes it is) thats not communism (yes it is-especially when youre bilking the public of funds for “green” projects) . thats ceding certain things to have a democratic structure. That’s like Hillary Clinton and others saying ‘It Takes a Village’ “. I believe Jonah Goldberg already discussed how fascistic this was in Liberal Fascism. Here is the interview that starts on page 18 (click image below for full document)

I lied-you can see the AFT files
Yes I am a dirty rotten scoundrel-the parent directory is still open at the AFTFACE site but I will not be posting the link…I want to still be able to access and review the files-I’ll publish the direct path later. But just so you know I’m not BS’ing you here is a screen shot of their backdoor. Good luck and Happy Hunting!
