Max Keiser is a new kind of terrorist. He uses the Internet and boycotts to manipulate stock prices. In that way, he forces corporations to comply with his brand of radical environmentalism and Sustainable Development. He puts his hands around corporate throats and squeezes. Max Keiser and his ilk hate business and they hate free enterprise and are using these tactics to redistribute wealth and cause chaos in the market place.

And if anyone disagrees with Keiser’s tactics, or advocates a difference of opinion to his policies, he attacks – viciously.

Case in point. A new mutual fund called the Free Enterprise Action Fund (FEAF) has been started by two champions of free enterprise, Steve Milloy and Tom Borelli. FEAF has been openly calling on corporations in which it has invested, to ignore the pressures of the radical greens and stick to the business of real growth strategies, not “feel good” social programs.

Of course, the Free Enterprise Action Fund is a threat to Max Keiser’s plans to make corporations slaves to his radical social agenda. And so he has attacked FEAF with a vengeance.

On his radio show, “Karmabanque Radio,” Keiser went on a diatribe against Milloy and Borelli, calling them “brown shirts” and denounced FEAF as an “appeaser to global warming and climate change terrorists.” Incredibly, Keiser then went on to say, ” I think the kids, the children of these people (Milloy and Borelli) should knife them.” You can hear the actual broadcast:

Keiser and his partner, Stacy Herbert, like to call themselves the Bonnie and Clyde of the Internet. Apparently, Keiser takes that role seriously. Bonnie and Clyde were not heroes or role models. They too hated the free market system and stole from it and killed people.

Here’s your chance to stick a blow for Free Enterprise. Let me explain.

Keiser is scheduled to speak at a conference in Frankfurt, Germany, November 2ond, called the Triple Bottom Line Investing (TBLI) Conference. This conference is not one that you would want to attend. It is a gathering of radicals who advocate “Corporate Social Responsibility.” That is a euphemism for Sustainable Development. They demand that businesses toe their radical line. Once a business complies, the demands become even more radical – the bar continually raised. That’s what this conference is all about. It’s the “Who’s Who” of radical-left investing.

A main sponsor of the conference is the Calvert Fund. They are basically paying the bills. Calvert is a $10 billion investment company for the Corporate Social Responsibility crowd. They engage in shareholder activism to get companies to adopt their social agenda. Calvert is a major player and can not afford to sponsor a conference which features a speaker who advocates violence.

We can get Calvert to cancel Keiser’s appearance at the TBLI conference and thereby damage his reputation and influence in the radical movement. But you must act now. We have only a few days.

Action To Take

Call the President of Calvert Investments and demand she remove Max Keiser from the program at the TBLI conference.

Her name is Barbara Krumsiek.

Phone: 301-951-4800

We must make the calls and send the e-mails to create a firestorm of protest. The more pressure she receives, the more likely she will take action to remove Keiser from the program.

This is a chance to strike a blow for free enterprise and take a whack of the sledgehammer at a real enemy of freedom.
