Nancy Pelosi: One of Mikhail Gorbachev’s most useful idiots
Wednesday, November 15, 2006
Investigative journalists doing their jobs should dig deep—really deep—into Nancy Pelosi’s role in the controversial, $280-million, federal-funded Hunters Point Shipyard affair--in relation to her alleged role as an investor in a real estate investment entity called PRESIDIO PARTNERS.
Look past the fact that the 936-acre site, of which about 443 acres are not polluted and that Hunter Point Shipyard is the largest tract of undeveloped land in San Francisco.
Roll Call has stated that in early 2004, John Murtha “reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the City of San Francisco” and that “Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights of the land.”
But that’s only the most recent chapter of Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha and San Francisco’s largest tract of undeveloped land.
Even critics clamoring that Pelosi is reneging on her pledge to clean up corruption by endorsing Murtha’s bid for House Majority leader don’t paint the whole picture.
In her own words on March 31, 2004: “I have been working on this agreement for more than a decade, and I am proud we are near our goal. I thank Senators Feinstein and Boxer, Mayor Newsom, and former Mayor Willie Brown for their work on the Bayview Hunters Point Shipyard agreement. I also thank my good friend Congressman Jack Murtha for assisting us in this last round of negotiation.”
“Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been a point of contention since my days as a San Francisco Supervisor, with all sides fighting over the level of contamination at the base and who will pay for cleanup.” said Senator Dianne Feinstein. “This agreement is a significant breakthrough, and signals an end to the bickering that has gone on for a quarter of a century.”
But the truth is Pelosi’s alleged involvement in the Hunters Point Shipyard fiasco goes well beyond what shows on the surface. For Pelosi it’s a well trodden trail that goes all the way to former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the Presidio’s most famous tenant.
“Among the unpublicized facts about Nancy Pelosi was that she was an investor in a real estate investment entity called PRESIDIO PARTNERS, which set up shortly after the Nixon Administration’s first closure of federal military bases around the US,”.
“Among the choicest real estate properties were (a) San Francisco’s Presidio Fort then the headquarters for the Sixth US Army (b) Treasure Island and Yreba Buena Island, the US Navy’s parcels in San Francisco Bay (c) The Hunter’s Point Naval Base, then biggest US Navy base between Seattle Washington Long Beach and San Diego California.”
Pelosi’s involvement in the disposal of federal military surplus land is matched only by Gorbachev, who as founder of Green Cross International (GCI) devised a mechanism for converting American military bases to civilian uses converting the bases over to “global centers for sustainability”. Gorbachev’s mission of converting American military bases to global centers for sustainability came just two years after he resigned as president of the Soviet Union on December 25, 1991.
CGI built on the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and supported the implementation of the summit’s Agenda 21.
Smells like corruption, and using one's political office to enrich ones self to me, read the rest here, and spread the word on the climate of corruption.
