Is this astroturf? Who is NSC and who is Robert Crone?

I'm trying to find out more about the hearing, and all I'm finding is a bunch of sites blindly linking to this National Seniors Council. Digging through their website, it seems like it's something of a virtual corporation with no real people behind it. I can't find evidence that this "National Director" Robert Crone actually exists. The only real person they link to on their website is someone at an inside-the-beltway astroturf PR/lobbying firm (an inside-the-beltway PR firm that claims to "Grassroots Lobbying" doesn't understand the meaning of "grassroots") named Trio Strategies.

The address given for NSC -- 1100 North Glebe Road, Suite 1010, Arlington, Virginia 22201 -- that exact suite -- is shared with dozens of other firms. It appears to be run by a company called "Intelligent Office" that provides "virtual receptionist" services.

Something stinks about this whole thing. Can anyone independently confirm that this hearing took place?

Oh hey, as I was writing this, I did some more digging and found that this article at NSC was originally posted over 2 years ago (October 2010). I don't understand why it got picked up and is being trotted around again now.

Overall, I think NSC might just be a way for Trio Strategies to get people to contribute to their fake lobbying org and "sign petitions" to create a mailing list of easily duped senior citizens, which they sell:

This whole thing stinks.

Is that idiot

trying to force the people to revolt? He seems to be doing a damn good job of it! Every 24 hours he gives out another bitchslap to the citizens.

this is why I never opened up

this is why I never opened up an IRA or a 401k 25 years ago. even then I knew this would eventualy happen before I turned 65. You know the Government is getting desperate when they have to do this.

When will they LEARN...

Give this sermon a listen; an election sermon from Isaiah Chapter 40... http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=114121050123

All our political leaders, IDOLS to some; are but grasshoppers ... once this nation REPENTS, goes God's way(the way of Ron Paul) understanding He is on the throne of this whole globe - He will blow Obama away as a grasshopper, as if he were nothing ... to trust in government, or the temporal riches of this life is stupid....REPENT America, or it will just get MORE painful...

In Christ, there is HOPE!!! - there is no hope anywhere else on planet Earth!

I hope the do this right away!

It would narrow that window between political awakening and sheer economic disaster. More time to resist and prepare...

we are already going to

we are already going to experience a economic disaster.. that is why they are being forced into doing this. All this will do is buy them a little time.

I'm surprised (but not

I'm surprised (but not really) this is even new news to anyone. LOTS of countries have been doing this for years. But whenever I mention this to an Amerikan Sheeple, that it's going to happen here, they have that stupid glazed over look in their eye's. BAAAAAA.... BHHAAAAAA

Heh. They also think HDTV is

Heh. They also think HDTV is new. It was in Rome when I went there in the early '80s..Europe had it at least 20 years before we did...
you are right--watch out.

Stefan Molyneux's podcast about 401ks

He basically says they are going to take it just like they did SS money. A really good podcast.

She's a PHD who has proposed a plan to nationalize 401Ks and IRAs and replace them w/ T-bonds.

Saw this coming

anyone who saves and scrimps for their retirement is "rich" and deserves to be stripped of their savings. Government does not create, they can only confiscate wealth and destroy what others have created. Increasingly, it appears that some people , jealous of the ability of others to create, MUST destroy and steal, it is their "prime directive".

some are already locked

you can borrow against it but only a certain percentage,and have to pay it back,before it can be borrowed from again
but you cannot take it all out unless you quit or are fired
i went round and round for what seemed an hour,talking to a rep
about who owns what,and who doesn't own it,all i heard was it is the law..it is the law blaa blaa blaa
