Obama Stuck on Sesame Street – Ignores Libya and the Economy

October 11, 2012 05:09

Hoping Americans are stupid enough to forget that Big Bird is part of a corporation worth hundreds of millions which still receives borrowed taxpayer dollars, Obama avoids any mention of his record. You would think that Obama hasn’t been president yet. He never proposes a solution to the debt crisis, has no real plan to revive the economy, never even mentions his signature disastrous achievement of Obamacare, lies to America about the Libyan terrorist attack, never mentions billions wasted on fake “green jobs” companies, offers no solutions to high gas prices, seems clueless on foreign policy, and never mentions the one promise he kept which was to cause electricity rates to “skyrocket.” Sheesh! ARE Americans that stupid? Apparently almost half are.


Here is an excerpt from Big Bird is a Democrat Dupe by Cliff Kincaid previously on usACTIONnews:

But Sesame Workshop is a rich corporation whose top executives make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and the company maintains investments in controversial hedge funds.

Sesame Workshop, which reported revenue of $130,606,413, in 2009, says 35 percent comes from “corporate, foundation and government support.” The latter includes the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Department of Education, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Gary Knell, chief operating officer of Sesame Workshop from 2000–2011, made a salary of $684,144. He is now the president and CEO of National Public Radio. Sesame Workshop President and CEO H. Melvin Ming earned a salary of $447,885 in 2009.

Direct government grants amounted to $7,968,918. Its Form 990 reported lobbying expenses of $1 million a year, in order to keep the federal dollars flowing. Lobbying is carried out by Tracy Garrett, Director of Government Affairs at Sesame Workshop.

Investments include $17,172,065 in a “hedge fund” that is not named, and almost $6 million in “private equity,” similar to the kind of investment fund that Romney used to run.

Senator Jim DeMint has pointed out that “From 2003 to 2006, Sesame Street made more than $211 million from toy & consumer product sales” and that it could obviously survive without public funding.

Speaking of China, Sesame Workshop not only operates on funds borrowed from China but works directly with the Chinese regime and its communist army.

The NSF grant money involves the “One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure” initiative, designed in part “to foster cross-cultural appreciation between children” and conducted in partnership with the China Youth Development Foundation. On the Chinese end of the relationship, one of the partners is the People’s Liberation Army.


So this is the big Obama vision? Throwing hard earned American dollars down the toilet to rich corporations that conspire with communist Chinese? This is the reason to reelect Obama? This is all he’s got to offer? In 2008 America nearly committed national suicide. Let’s not complete the job in 2012.
