Comprehensive Background Report

This PeopleFinders.Com looks like a source of some information that we don't have yet, but it costs $39.00 to view it. It shows some likely family members, their ages and addresses. The year of birth town and cities of residence match.

Can the CIA-trained Markos Moulitsas get the information scrubbed before his supporter, detractors and the press have a chance to review it? That depends upon how fast readers act, and post their revelations.

Interestingly, the information here connects Moulitsas to the Woodlands Texas (Bush, Halliburton Country) location that we researched and reported about in earlier stories. From

Will Netroots Nation Be a White-Out in 2008, Like it was in 2007

I've heard that, in contrast to last year's YearlyKos, this year's Netroots Nation was making a special effort to reach out to diverse parts of the Democratic Party, instead of having a virtually all-white conference again.

"A Diversity of Opinion, if Not Opinionators:
At the Yearly Kos Bloggers' Convention, a Sea of Middle-Aged White Males"

By Jose Antonio Vargas
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 6, 2007; C01

In that article, the conference organizer, Gina Cooper was quoted as saying, "I hate using the word 'diversity.'

Apparently, she also hates using the word "black", because I searched the entire Netroots Nation website and I can't find a single instance of the use of that word to mean that color group of people that makes up 20% of the Democratic Party. I'm not saying the word isn't there somewhere, but check it out for yourself, using the search function, and see if you can find it! See if you can find us

This actually represents a regression relative to 2007, when the word "black" was used once, in a description of Alexis McGill, who "She has written and taught primarily on urban secession, black youth political participation and organizing the hip-hop generation. She received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University."

So, I searched for the word "African, but every mention of the word "African" is from the 2007 program, with none from 2008.

It seems like instead of trying to address the lack of diversity pointed out by the Washington Post last year, Netroots Nation may have circled the wagons and tried to make the conference even more monochromatic this year then last. Otherwise, why wouldn't they announce any break-out sessions or speakers or participants who are "Black" or "African" American?

Well maybe instead of recruiting Blacks, they're focusing on recruiting Latinos? Well, there are two mentions of the word "Latino" in the database, so maybe they're recruiting non-whites one color at a time.

OK, well now it's time for someone to explain how pseudo-"progressive" only-whites expect to win the 2008 election without input, participation or collaboration from Blacks and Latinos. It must be the progressive "serendipity strategy."

Moulitsas Zúñiga Family Member Sits on Board of Latin American Federation of Associations of Hotels and Restaurants

Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga says he came from a poor family in El Salvador. But not very poor, according to documents publicly available on the Internet. He told the Salvadoran newspaper, La Prensa Gráfica, "No tengo dinero. No vengo de familia famosa o poderosa." (I don't have money. I don't come from a famous or powerful family, he told LaPrensaGráfica.Com.)

However, someone with the last name "Zúñiga", who is also listed in government documents as the "manager" of the Zúñiga's family hotel, also happens to be a director on the board of the Latin American Federation of Associations of Hotels and Restaurants:
TELS. (503) 298 3629, 298 1651, 245 4529 FAX 298 3628
Notice that the e-mail listed for the Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga above is the same as the e-mail for the "family hotel" at which Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga held his honeymoon celebrations, the Hotel Suites Jaltepeque, which is part of the multi-million dollar Club Jewel of the Pacific Group hotel and condominium complex.
Actualmente opera como un hotel pequeño de playa "Hotel Suites Jaltepeque", para el mes de septiembre de 2003, se operará el Club Jaltepeque, Club nunca visto en las costas salvadoreñas, con el "USO DE DIA" exclusivamente para socios. La membresia es nula y demanda una cuota mensual de mantenimiento. Es membresia segmentada. La finalizacion de la primera y segunda etapa será en un término de 24 meses como máximo, se venderán las membresías anualmente y de manera preferencial las primeras a partir del 1o. de agosto de este año. Igualmente se comercializán en la actulaidad acciones de propiedad de la empresa a un precio minimo de compra de $2,500.00 cada una (1,000 en total) de lo que tenemos informacion en nuestra pagina web y posteriormente personalizada para presentar las bondades de este proyecto completamente innovador en nuestro país. ElSalvador.Com
And the same e-mail is listed for Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga in his capacity as a member of the Central American Federation of Tourism Boards, which is highlighted in the "Regional Industry Profile of the Central American Free Trade Agreement."

The Moulitsas "family hotel" provides oppulent services for its guests. There's lovely blue sail fishing off the coast of El Salvador through the Hotel Suites Jaltepeque!
Imagine! Five days of angling for just seven thousand dollars USD!

I swear! For a guy who who has "no money" and doesn't come from a "famous or powerful family", Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga's family members sure are well connected all over Latin America.

So, why, precisely, has Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga felt the need to dissemble about the wealth and power of his family in El Salvador? Oh, well! I guess we'll find out sooner or later!

Which National Reporter Will Break the Real Story of Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga's' Real Background?

Here is an enormous scoop that has not yet been reported in the national press. The first reporter to simply report the little-known but now well-documented background facts about "Kos" (DailyKos) is going to become a national figure.

The biggest name in the blogosphere is "Kos", AKA Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga. He's hosting a national convention, Netroots Nation (previously known as YearlyKos) on July 17–20 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas. This is a good time for the press to at least provide some background information on the man behind the conference.

He says he came from a poor and family in El Salvador. "No tengo dinero. No vengo de familia famosa o poderosa." (I don't have money. I don't come from a famous or powerful family, he told LaPrensaGráfica.Com.)

Yet, he has never told the press or his supporters the names of the members of his biological familly, perhaps because his real family history is patently inconstent with and tends to discredit everything he has said about himself to his supporters, to the press, to the public and to political officials who are scheduled to speak at this Netroots Nation Conference, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

For example:

His own blog says he celebrated his honeymoon at the family hotel on the Pacific shores of El Salvador. It turns out that this "family hotel" is "Hotel Jewel of the Pacific", a massive hotel and condominim complex where the daily rate for a room is about $300 United States dollars! Is that consistent with coming from a poor Salvadoran family?

Research reveals that a member of his family, the same one listed as "manager of the family hotel", Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga, received a $700,000.00 loan from the United States' Overseas Private Investment Council, for his international Baja Salt Group.

It's not wrong to be rich. But, it's wrong to be rich while consistently presenting oneself as a poor immigrant, particularly when one was actually born in Chicago.

And the same member of his family that received the grant from OPIC is also on the business member board of ANEP, El Salvador's "National Association of Private Corporations", which the CIA has calls "a political pressure group" and which has been associated with the assassination of Catholic Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero.

Twenty-seven years ago,

When [Jesuit Fr. Rutilio] Grande was killed, however, [Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo] Romero made an extraordinary decision: The following Sunday there would be only one mass in the entire archdiocese. In order to receive the eucharist, every person would have to come to the cathedral in San Salvador. The oligarchy reacted with alarm. The day after Romero announced the single mass, representatives of ANEP, the national businessmen's association, met with Romero and demanded that the idea be dropped. The church, they said, was stirring up trouble and conflict. Theology Today

And Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga, the same ANEP board member who is the national director of El Salvador's national tourism board, Casatur, and, by his own admission, owns an enormous hotel/condominium complex on the most exclusive ocean front land in El Salvador, is the "manager" of Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA´s "family hotel" and shares his last name, as well as a startling family resemblance.

Presidente : Lic. Carlos Alberto Delgado Z.
Director Ejecutivo: Lic. Ena López
Teléfono y Fax : 2223-9775
Correo electrónico:
Página web:
Dirección: Carretera a Santa Tecla, Pasaje Carbonel contiguo al edificio Carbonel Nº 2.

He also owns an international salt corporation, Baja Salt Group, that exports table and industrial salt to "Japón, Corea, Taiwán, Nueva Zelanda, Centro y Sudamérica y en la costa este y oeste de Norteamérica."

Although some fifty blogs have reported these facts, Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga has never denied any of them, and has confirmed some researched facts, such as that he spent his youth as a Republican campaign operative and vehemently opposed ALL gay service in the military back in 1993.

With Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga hosting a national bloggers' conference in Austin, Texas, with Nancy Pelosi as one of the speakers, I think these are all facts the the public needs to know and would find very interesting. And I can provide MUCH MORE information to fill in any gaps and satisfy editors, based on published government records, newspaper reports, etc.

Again, the reporter who writes this story first will become nationally know because of the high profile of Mr. Moulitsas and his Netroots Nation conference in Austin.

I'll call you this week to talk about this some more.

Netroots Nation Exposé: Conference Founder Trained by Central Intelligence Agency

Netroots Nation Exposé:
Conference Founder Trained by the US Central Intelligence Agency

Adam Zerwer
National Black Programming Consortium

Dear Adam:

As we discussed tonight, Netroots Nation the yearly conference of the white blogosphere, founded by Markos C.A Moulitsas Zúñiga, is coming up on July 17-20. I have two blogs dedicated to reporting upon Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga, DailyKos, YearlyKos (now Netroots Nation) and the exclusion of Black people from his blog and others in the white blogosphere: (1) Truth About Kos, and (2) AfroSpear in the Whitosphere.

Tonight in my conversation with you, I made some very highly inflammatory statements about Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga and DailyKos, for example:

Now, here is the documentation for each of those facts (pages at the Truth About Kos include to primary sources), and based on a speech by Markos C.A. Moulitsas himself, his published writings in his college newspaper, internal polls of membership by race at DailyKos, and a quote from the owner of MyDD, as well as my own independent research.

As I said in our conversation of tonight, Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga does NOT consider himself to be a minority; he considers himself to be white. When he was a student at Northern Illinois University and wrote for the student newspaper, the Northern Star, he wrote a five part series on relations between people of different colors and ethnicities at the campus. However, Moulitsas Zúñiga said in an essay concluding the series, that he was glad his work confronting the issue was simply over and done with:
Today the Star ran the last of my four-part series on racism at NIU. Having been a project that dominated my life for the last couple of weeks, I was more than glad to have it finished and over with so I could return to the mundane world of Faculty Senate meetings and other reporter stuff." Northern Star, September 2, 1993. (Emphasis added.)
Apparently, this was an an assignment that Moulitsas did not relish and he was glad to have his study of racism over and done with. In spite of being partly Salvadoran, Moulitsas never considered himself to be subject to racism and always considered himself to be simply "white." When he finished writing his series on racism for the school paper, he said,
And as I left the ugly reality of racism behind, it struck me that what was such an easy and trivial exercise for me would be impossible for anyone whose skin color or religious persuassion (sic) made them the target of bigotry and discrimination. They would never be able to escape who they were. Northern Star, September 2, 1993. (Emphasis added.)
Shortly after I dug up and reported the existence of the essays, and another letter to the newspaper in which Moulitsas Zúñiga OPPOSED ALL SERVICE BY GAYS IN THE US MILITARY, these essays disappeared from the online archives of the Northern Star. Thankfully, I had taken a screenshot of the one opposing all gays in the military. As a result of my investigation, he has since acknowledged, in writing at DailyKos, that he held this position.

Although his online biographies state that he wrote for the Northern Star during college, you will discover that the archives of the Northern Star have been scrubbed and no longer mention Moulitsas Zúñiga's name, even though these same archives cover the years in which he is known to have published at the Northern Star, 1992 and 1993. But, if you call and ask for them providing the dates of these articles, the Northern Star will confirm the existence of these articles, confirm that they were once available and are not now, and send you faxes of these articles.

As I said, there is unanimous agreement among Black people and Black bloggers that no part of the Democratic Party apparatus should be segregated by color, and that Black people should be adequately represented among the bloggers at the Democratic National Convention.

I have collected all of my research about Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga into an outline with extensive documentation using US and Salvadoran government documents available online, US and Salvadoran newspaper accounts, Moulitsas Zúñiga's own published statements and tthe statements of his relatives as reported in Salvadoran Newspapers:

The Indictment of Markos C.A. Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA by Justice and History (Updated with Additional Information and Counts)

Also see,

Why Has Markos Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (M.A.M.Z.) Lied About His Wealthy Salvadoran Oligarchy Family Background?

Matt Stoller, owner of MyDD, has said,

Now first I'm going to address this community about our culture. Most MyDD readers are comfortable within what I call 'Jewish political culture', which is a very individualistic, progressive style of argumentative discourse . . . There are lots of other cultures out there, and lots of other ways of thinking about the world. These represent themselves online, but they don't necessarily represent themselves here. Does it matter that they don't? Maybe. Maybe not. 12/293#commenttop (emphasis added)

The Strange Tree of Netroots Nation

Cross-posted from the Francis L. Holland Blog.

The Netroots Nation website (previously known as "YearlyKos" or "Yearly Whitosphere")
says it is "a project of . . . "

Something very strange is going on at DailyWhitosphere, beyond its connections to the Central Intelligence Agency.  According to the Washington Post, the Netroots Nation coordinator, Gina Cooper, has said, "I hate using the word 'diversity.' " It certainly shows when you review the website for the 2008 Netroots Nation conference.

The word "diversity" does not appear a single time on the Netroots Nation website with respect to the 2008 conference. The term "African-American" does not appear a single time on the Netroots Nation website with respect to the 2008 conference. The term "Black" does not appear a single time in the Netroots Nation website with reference to Black people. The term "Latino" does not appear in any document on the Netroots Nation site with respect to organizing for the 2008 Netroots Nation conference.

However, the phrase "make my dick bigger" appears prominently among the advertisers and financial supporters of bloggerpower, the "non-profit" that sponsors Netroots Nation. Why is it alright to say "make my dick bigger," but unacceptable to use the words "Black", "Latino" and "diversity"?

The Netroots Nation website (previously know as YearlyKos or Yearly Whitosphere) says it is "a project of with the generous support of the Netroots Arts and Education Initiative (NAEI)." If you go to the website, you discover that one of the sponsor links is "Make My Dick Bigger".


Now, you might be tempted to think this is a frat-house joke from a group that is 70% male and 96% white, but when you click on the "Make My Dick Bigger" link, you actually find a series of for-profit entities that promise penis enlargement.


However, if you look at the conference's contact form, (above) you will find not a single line vaguely referencing diversity, presumably because Gina Cooper and the Netroots Conference "hate using the word diversity."

A Diversity of Opinion, if Not Opinionators
At the Yearly Kos Bloggers' Convention, a Sea of Middle-Aged White Males

According to its website, "Netroots Nation 2008 will feature a spectacular 26,000-square-foot Exhibit Hall centrally located near all the action," but it won't have any Black or Latino listed exhibitors (as far as I can see by reviewing the exhibitors list), and it won't have any Black or Latino sponsors or organizers, as far as I can see. You tell me! I would love to be wrong, but I'm afraid that I'm right.

What a strange "progressives" conference, sponsored by penis enhancement companies but statistically and constitutionally averse to the participation of Blacks, Latinos and diversity.

A Jim-Crow Blogger White-Out at the Denver Convention?

I've looked at all of the blogs selected for the Convention floor, beginning with "A for "Alabama" and ending with "N" for New Mexico. In all of these blogs, I cannot see a single blog that can definitively be identifed as a Black blog. The only blog that seems to run any risk of being a Black blog is the one from Washington, DC, but even that one could just as easily be a white blog.

In all of the bloglists of all of these blogs, I saw two links to Pam's House Blend, or or two to Jack and Jill Politics, one link to Fort Wayne (Indiana) Black woman, none to any Black organization (besides a single link to the NAACP), one link to that Black guy Willis, and one link to Field Negro, out of over a thousand links to "progressive" blogs. So, I figure that links to Black blogs represent less than one percent of the links at these blogs, which is a good indication of the unlikelihood that they will send any Black bloggers to Denver.

What you WILL find among these blogs is that they' almost all part of an interestate "Blue Blogs" network dominated by partisans of Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga (DailyKos), the Salvadoran Reagan-Bush supporter who railed against gays in the military, worked on the poltical campaign of Republican Rep. Henry Hyde, and acknowledges having spent over a year training with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency while he was starting his progressive blog, DailyKos.

You will also notice that DailyKos, MyDD and other closely related blogs are on the bloglists of virtually every blog that was invited to the Convention (of the blogs from "A" to "N").

Somehow, all of the blogs from "A" to "N" on the list of blogs invited to the Convention have gotten the memo that says not to include Black blogs on their bloglists.

I warned my readers last year that a segregated whitosphere where Blacks could not participate openly and freely would result in Democratic Party decisions made exclusively by and for white people whenver these white supremacist apartheid bloggers get their hands on the levers of power, for example selecting bloggers to participate in Denver on the floor of the Convention.

I hope that others will review the blogs from "O" to "Z" and discover that the latter part of the alphabet is more integrated than the former. Good luck!

"Hinessight: The Anti-Drudge" Discovers the Truth About Kos

Today, when I looked at my eponymous (self-named) blog's site meter, I discovered that a blog that usually gets 180 hits a day was getting 41 hits in just the last hour! And then I discovered why: The Hinessight blog posted a link to my Indictment of Markos C.A. Moulitsas by Justice and History, saying, "Daily Kos founder Moulitsas-Zuniga has quite a history ."

There are still a lot of Americans who don't know who MAMZ is, including the entire mainstream media. How long can that last?

Best Selling Right-Wing Author Richard Poe Investigates Markos C.A. Moulitisas Zúñiga (MAMZ), Using "Truth About Kos" as His Roadmap.

New York Times Best Selling Author Cites "Truth About Kos" Blog
as roadmap for investigating MAMZ. ^ | January 29, 2008 | Richard Lawrence Poe

DEMOCRAT BLOGGER Markos Moulitsas Zuñíga never fails to bewilder. He proclaims his humble origins, yet his family is rich. He heckles Hillary Clinton, yet helps her where it counts. He boasts of completing a six-month screening for CIA employment -- but says he turned down the job for no very good reason.

His fans call him "Kos". His DailyKos blog draws more than half a million visits per day, reportedly generating sufficient advertising revenue to support the Kos family in style.

Kos' followers -- called "Kossacks" -- include over 125,000 registered users and hundreds of "diarists" or bloggers, five of them paid "fellows".

Jimmy Carter, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are all DailyKos diarists.

Hillary Clinton spoke at the 2007 YearlyKos Convention, where she told the Kossacks, "We are... putting together a network in the blogosphere... we're beginning to match... the advantage of the other side."

The Washington Post touts Kos as the Democrat answer to Rush Limbaugh.

How did the 36-year-old Kos attain such lofty status?

Moulitsas presents himself as a self-made man. He told the Salvadoran newspaper La Prensa Gráfica:

"Before the Internet, someone like me could never have reached this level of success. I have no money. I don't come from a famous or powerful family."

Baloney, says Francis L. Holland, a disaffected Kossack who runs the Truth-About-Kos Web site.

Kos was born in Chicago on September 11, 1971 to a Greek father, Markos Moulitsas, Sr., and a Salvadoran mother, María Teresa Zúñiga de Funes.

Holland notes that an uncle of Kos served as El Salvador's Education Minister. His mother's family owns the Club Joya del Pacifico, a Salvadoran resort. Another Kos relative, Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga, owns the Baja Salt Group, a global supplier of industrial and table salt.

Kos' parents took him to El Salvador in 1976. They stayed for four years.

Political violence was on the rise. President Carlos Humberto Romero began cracking down on communist insurgents in 1977. This upset U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who sought to appease the guerrillas, not fight them.

Carter backed a gang of leftwing colonels and politicians calling themselves the Revolutionary Government Junta (Junta Revolucionaria de Gobierno). They ousted President Romero on October 15, 1979, promising land reform and nationalization of major industries.

Carter's "revolution" only emboldened the communists. In 1980, the country exploded in civil war. Kos' family fled the country that year when communist guerrillas threatened to kill them.

Kos joined the U.S. Army after high school. From 1989-92, he served as a 13P missile crew specialist in Bamberg, Germany. Kos says that the racial diversity of the Army awakened his inner Latino, transforming him from a Reagan Republican to a hard-left Democrat.

Bolstered by racial pride, Kos earned two bachelors' degrees from Northern Illinois University and a law degree from Boston University. He moved to San Francisco in 1998, seeking his fortune in the dot-com boom.

Then, one day, Kos decided to join the CIA. "In 2001, I was underemployed... between jobs", Kos said in a June 2, 2006 interview. "And so I applied to the CIA." Kos was amazed to find that his CIA interviewers shared his leftwing views. He recalls:

"Every single one of them was liberal... people who want to make the world a better place... people who are internationalist... That was an eye-opening experience for me."
After six months, the CIA offered him an assignment with its Clandestine Service. But Kos said no. "The Howard Dean campaign took off and I had to make a decision," he explains. Kos chose politicking over spying. Or so he says.

Curiously, Kos joined the Dean campaign in June 2003, more than a year after his CIA interlude supposedly ended. His story is fishy. But, then, so is everything else about Mr. Moulitsas.

Kos founded DailyKos on May 26, 2002. He positioned himself as a renegade, "crashing the gate" of the Democratic Party.

Yet he acts more like a gatekeeper than a gatecrasher. Following Hillary's victory in the New Hampshire primary, for instance, Kos squashed speculation that she might have cheated. "Anyone who persists in this crap is engaging in unsupported conspiracy theories and violating site policy, a bannable offense", Kos announced.

Some leftist bloggers have denounced Kos as a government plant. "Once CIA, always CIA", says Francis Holland.

Any statement Kos makes should arouse healthy skepticism. Still, his account of a "liberal", "internationalist" CIA rings true, given the brazen defiance President Bush has endured from that agency.

MAMZ Family Continues Building on Endangered Salvadoran Estuary


While Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga tells the American people that he is a "radical" "leftist" and "progressive", his "family business" in El Salvador continues cutting down trees and building massive residential projects on the bounds of an estuary that is internationally recognized to be endangered by other projects the of same greedy real estate development and tourism family.

One would think that as the owners of the Jaltepeque Hotel Suites and the Club Joya del Pacifico, they would be wealthy enough that they could stop destroying endangered beach front and leeching effluents (sewage and other runoff) into this endangered estuary. But, when you are talking about Salvadoran oligarch capitalist developers who act with the support of the US Government and the Salvadoran Government, and especially when their other family business activities are supported by development dollars from US Government's the Overseas Private Investment Council, greed just knows no bounds.

Now, the goal - as anyone can see at this site if they register for free and log in - is to build skyscrapers along the Jaltepeque Estuary. Will any poor people live in those skyscrapers when a months rent exceeds a year of poor people's income?

It must gall Salvadoran peasants that the same family that gobbles up ocean front land in El Salvador has a kid in the United States pretending to be a leader of the progressive Left! They must conclude that Americans are more gullible than toddlers, dumb as rocks, and I guess some of us still are.

Wanna Know More About MAMZ's Family's Exclusive Country Club in El Salvador?

The following is from Periodico Dia a Dia, which was 404, but still available in Google cache. It's an interview with Carlos Alberto Delgado Zúñiga, who is the "manager" of the Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga "family business" resort hotel and country club on the Jaltapeque peninsula outside of the capital of El Salvador, San Salvador.

I figure this is reliable information since it comes directly from the mouth of the family member who operates the family's country club and hotel, explaining the relationship between the family business, their official role in the leadership of El Salvador's tourism industry, and the Government of El Salvador. Other documents at this site explain the financial and political support provided by the globalization-oriented US Government for the internationalization of El Salvador's tourists industry and support provided directly to the "family business" of Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga.


Por. Mario Alberto Pérez

Entrevista con Lic. Carlos Alberto Delgado, Presidente Cámara Salvadoreña de Turismo y del Club Joya del Pacifico.

¿Cuál es la función de la Cámara? La Cámara de Turismo es la gremial legalmente representante del sector ante las autoridades de El Salvador.

¿Cuántos miembros la conforman? Aproximadamente 150 socios, entre ellos las especialidades: hoteleras individuales, tours operadores independientes, asociaciones de hoteles y diferentes sectores.

¿Trabajan por el desarrollo del sector? Esta Cámara de Turismo es la parte del sector privado, es la contra parte del gobierno, en este caso de CORSATUR que depende del Ministerio de Turismo, afiliada a FEDECATUR que es la Federación de Cámaras de Turismo a nivel centroamericano y que forma parte del Consejo regional de Turismo.

¿Cómo inciden en las políticas de turismo? En nuestro país se le ha dado la importancia al turismo, hay voluntad política, el presidente Saca ha sido muy claro en decir que el turismo es uno de los ejes principales del desarrollo para el futuro, tanto social como económico y estamos coordinando con el Ministro Rubén Rochi para impulsar esta industria.

¿Esta industria se está desarrollando? Esta empezando, el desarrollo del turismo siempre ha estado dormido, no ha sido una prioridad, no ha tenido el apoyo de gobiernos anteriores hacia un sector tan importante como es el turismo, pero estamos viendo que todo esta cambiando, vamos para adelante y esperamos un mayor impulso con la nueva Ley que será aprobada.

¿La Cámara trabaja con el Ministerio? Con el ex Ministro Luis Cardenal iniciamos un trabajo y ahora con el actual Ministro Rubén Rochi, hemos formado una especie de consejo empresarial que se reúne con él por lo menos un a vez al mes para discutir cada aspecto del turismo nacional.

¿Qué tipo de turismo promueven más? Hay que ser relista en El Salvador tenemos el turismo de convenciones, vienen personas de negocios, realmente lo que es turismo jamás hemos tenido a nivel regional, nos falta mucha infraestructura.

¿Qué se necesita para infraestructura? Primeramente una ley, eso le da mayor seguridad a cualquier inversionista, las reglas del juego tienen que ser claras para que el turismo en el país crezca, prácticamente tiene que haber facilidades, hablamos de iniciativas fiscales, se tienen que conformar polos turísticos, el turismo no es solo tener un hotel de 205 habitaciones en una playa, sino que se tiene que vestir, tienen que haber restaurantes, discotecas, toda una infraestructura para vestir el polo turístico.

¿El Salvador necesita promoción? Estamos muy bajos en proyección internacional, para eso se necesitan fondos, el turismo ha sido relegado siempre, nunca se le ha dado la importancia merecida, ahora que se esta trabajando con el ejecutivo, se pretende que con la ley tomemos fondos para la promoción del turismo.

¿Joyas del Pacifico es un nuevo proyecto? Somos un empresa familiar en la Costa del Sol, es un proyecto integral a mediano plazo, tiene un área de 37 manzanas, se inició con la idea de darle a un grupo de personas un lugar de esparcimiento, es un club privado de membresías, se han vendido 12 lotes, 8 de ellos a salvadoreños radicados en el extranjero y todavía tenemos 8 en pre venta.

¿Qué costos tienen? Si usted solo quiere ser socio del club o miembro, hay un costo de por vida que consiste en un bono de seis mil dólares más IVA y después el costo es de 40 dólares mensuales mas IVA, con esto el precio disminuye, una estadía que cuesta 125 dólares al socio le cuesta 45 dólares por ser socio, los precios disminuyen.

¿Hay Membresías mensuales? Hay membresías anuales y trimestrales, las anuales prácticamente no las compra el salvadoreño, si no que las compra el extranjero que viene al país.

¿Qué costo tienen y a qué tienen derecho? Pagan mil quinientos dólares al año, tienen derecho a venir al club los 365 días del año, a quedarse a dormir, hacer una fiesta, usar el salón para hacer una reunión etc.

¿Qué tipo de membresías tienen? Hay tres membresías: la individual, que es para una pareja, vale 750 dólares al año, una pareja puede llegar los 365 días del año; tenemos otra que es la familiar, que comprende padre, madre e hijos menores de 25 años hasta 4, el costo es de mil 500 dólares y la “De por vida”, que es un bono de 6 mil dólares y para toda la vida, tanto del miembro como de la esposa.

¿Venden acciones? Tenemos la acción de propiedad, la empresa tiene mil acciones, en este momento solo quedan 26 a la venta, desde que empezamos en el 2003 hemos incrementado un 300 por ciento en acciones, o sea que cualquier persona que invirtió en aquel momento tiene un 300 por ciento más de su inversión.

¿Cuánto cuestan? Cuesta 6 mil dólares cada una, tenemos restricciones, una de ellas es que tiene que ser avalada por 3 socios accionistas, teniendo en cuenta que el 70 por ciento de las acciones es familiar.

¿Cómo puede invertir un salvadoreño en EE.UU.? Es muy fácil, principalmente visitando la página Web y después escribiéndome para hacer ver su interés en acciones o en propiedades al correo

¿Cuentan con piscina? En estos momentos en el club solo tenemos una de 503 metros cuadrados, está a 3 metros sobre el nivel del mar y frente a la playa.

How The Truth About Kos is Used to Impeach Opinions Offered by Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ)

The purpose of "The Truth About Kos Blog" is to provide bloggers, the public and government leaders with truthful and complete information about Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ AKA "Kos") who, among other things, has acknowledged that he spent up to two years training with the US Central Intelligence Agency between 2001 and 2003, while starting DailyKos.

It is quite a joy, then, to see that the blog is serving its public information purpose, with even members, staff, or interns of the United States Senate using The Truth About Kos as a reference in their research.

In the above instance, for example, in a debate at a Ron Paul blog, a reader at the US Senate referred to "The Indictment of Markos C.A. Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA by Justice and History (Updated with Additional Information and Counts)" at the Truth About Kos blog for a complete list of the known information showing that MAMZ's opinions, information and organization and associates cannot be trusted because, among other things, MAMZ received training and income from the US Central Intelligence Agency simultaneous with starting the DailyKos ostensibly "anti-war" and "progressive" blog.

The information at the Truth About Kos Blog about MAMZ, his activities, his associates and his Salvadoran family background, was used to powerfully impeach the opinions offered by Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga.

Before the advent of the Internet, it would have been virtually impossible to both research the information available here and disseminate it nationally and internationally, with links to the primary sources that prove the veracity of the information at the Truth About Kos. For example, without access to the Internet to research the many essays of MAMZ, we might never have discovered that he opposed ALL gay service in the military.

Without the Internet and The Truth About Kos, we might not have discovered that the manager of MAMZ's family business in El Salvador is connected to a business group that has been associated with Salvadoran death squads. We might not have discovered that the manager of the MAMZ family business received a million dollar project from the US Government's Overseas Private Investment Council (OPIC). And so we might never have been led by these facts to strongly suspect that MAMZ and member(s) of his family are CIA agents and/or assets.

(I happen to agree with MAMZ that Republican US Representative from Texas Ron Paul is an extremely color-aroused antagonist whose views are antithetical to the interests of Black people. However, I also know that one part of surreptitious misinformation campaigns is to provide true information in some respects while misleading and diverting the public at other critical ways. Although I don't pretend to know the nature of MAMZ's CIA-related responsibilities, if any, the facts of his self-acknowledged CIA involvement and other background stand for themselves.)
