~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
On November 13th, 1998, (Friday the thirteenth) a special edition of “The Wizard of Oz was presented on the big screen. Oz is a land where macho does not exist; Pipsqueak-voiced Munchkins, a Wizard who turns out to be a fake weenie, a Cowardly dandy-Lion, a weepy Tin Man, and a gayly dancing Scarecrow with disintegrating fists, make-up the wimpy, casper-milk-toast characters. Luckily, in every good story there is always a villain, a masculine force to be reckoned with and the Wicked Witch of the West plays the ideal feminist who can take the lead.
Eerily, the Obama administration seems to be following a progressive, delusional Oz-like script, where ‘Emerald’ D.C. is headquarters to a somewhere over the rainbow-lit White House with a fake weenie wizard president whose name is Barack Oz-bama. The wishy- washy Oz-bama crew even has its own masculine force to be reckoned with, Miss Valerie Jarrett Gulch, who clearly wears the pants in the feckless cast of sissy characters.
Coincidentally,on November 13th, 2015 ( Friday the thirteenth) in an interview on Good Morning America, Oz-bama declared on the big screen that ISIS “has been contained.” “I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama said of ISIS.
“What is true, from the start our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them.” (I am not a scientist, but how can you contain ISIS in a border-less world?)
That same morning in Paris, Al Gore, Chairman of the Climate Reality Project, was present at the Eiffel Tower in France to host a global broadcast of “The World is Watching” a live 24-hour program to discuss climate change, a topic that Barack Oz-bama feels is the number one global threat, a narrative that suits both Al and Barack in their pursuit of an elite controlled NWO…..
First of all, when I saw this on the news yesterday, I thought that all hell was breaking loose in the UK, France of Germany. When I realized it was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I then asked myself if these anarachists were astroturfed?
Answer: Yes, yes, yes they are, sort of.
Everyone has the right to assemble and protest. I do not know who threw the first volley. However, while these anti-capitalist nutjobs are protesting, rioting and ripping Pittsburgh to shreds, once the G20 summit is over, it is the citizens of Pittsburgh who will be living amidst destruction. Everyone else will fly home, walk home, drive home, hitchhike their way home, many to the suburbs that was built by capitalists with capitalist funding. Their neighborhoods, will in no way look as bad as the destruction they threaten to leave behind.
In the meantime, I point out that these protesters are neither members of the tea party or patriots. As proven, when WE protest while WE may get a little loud and even a little angry, WE come in peace and when WE leave in peace. WE leave the grounds as good as WE found it.
So now when liberals bitch off about patriots, the truth is all the names thrown out there belong to them.
“Police fired canisters of pepper spray and smoke and rubber bullets at marchers protesting the Group of 20 summit Thursday after anarchists responded to calls to disperse by rolling trash bins, throwing rocks and breaking windows.
Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper said 17 to 19 protesters were arrested, and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said swift police decisions resulted in minimal property damage. Officials said there were no reports of injuries.
The afternoon march turned chaotic at just about the time that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrived for a meeting with leaders of the world’s major economies.
The clashes began after several hundred protesters, many advocating against capitalism, tried to march from an outlying neighborhood toward the convention center where the summit is being held.
The protesters clogged streets, banged on drums and chanted ‘Ain’t no power like the power of the people, ’cause the power of the people don’t stop.’
The marchers included small groups of self-described anarchists, some wearing dark clothes and bandanas and carrying black flags. Others wore helmets and safety goggles.
One banner read, ‘No borders, no banks,’ another, ‘No hope in capitalism.’ A few minutes into the march, protesters unfurled a large banner reading ‘NO BAILOUT NO CAPITALISM’ with an encircled ‘A,’ a recognized sign of anarchists.
The marchers did not have a permit and, after a few blocks, police declared it an unlawful assembly. They played an announcement over a loudspeaker ordering people to leave and then police in riot gear moved in to break it up. Authorities also used a crowd-control device that emits a deafening siren-like noise, making it uncomfortable for protesters to remain in the streets.
Protesters split into smaller groups. Some rolled large metal trash bins toward police, and a man in a black hooded sweat shirt threw rocks at a police car, breaking the front windshield. Protesters broke 10 windows in a few businesses, including a bank branch, a Boston Market restaurant and a BMW dealership, police said.
Officers fired canisters of pepper spray and smoke at the protesters, set off a flash-bang grenade and fired rubber bullets. Some of those exposed to the pepper spray coughed and complained that their eyes were watering and stinging.
About an hour after the clashes started, the police and protesters were at a standoff. Police sealed off main thoroughfares to downtown.
Twenty-one-year-old Stephon Boatwright, of Syracuse, New York, wore a mask of English anarchist Guy Fawkes and yelled at a line of riot police. He then sat cross-legged near the officers, telling them to let the protesters through and to join their cause.
‘You’re actively suppressing us. I know you want to move,’ Boatwright yelled, to applause from the protesters gathered around him.
Protesters complained that the march had been peaceful and that police were trampling on their right to assemble.
‘We were barely even protesting,’ said T.J. Amick, 22, of Pittsburgh. ‘Then all of a sudden, they come up and tell us we’re gathered illegally and start using force, start banging their shields, start telling us we’re going to be arrested and tear gassed. … We haven’t broken any laws.”
To those protesters guilty of spewing hateful rhetoric on No Obama’s, welcome to Obamaland where suppression, censorship, attacks on our freedom of speech and our right to assemble is the rule of the day.

“This writer’s conjecture is: Could Obama/Geithner, without any advance notice, slap currency exchange controls on the U.S. that would prevent the repatriation of these excess dollars, and effectively land-lock the dollars already here?
Such a move would immediately set up a two-tiered system of currency for the U.S.: Internal and External.
The pain this would put on America would be sacrificed for the greater global good.”
Answer to Mr. Wood’s question, a resounding YES. Since Obama’s first day in office, both he and Geithner have done everything possible to undermine and inconvenience the American people turning our lives into a living hell. Therefore, we should not be surprised if and when Obama throws the United States “under the bus” to achieve his socialist agenda. Making the United States the ultimate sacrificial lamb is Obama’s viewpoint of “for the greater good.” Obama would become a hero, hence immortalized amongst socialist nations. Okay, so maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic here, but he might, and you get my point.
Furthermore, Gordon Brown has been told that dispatching more money in a stimulus plan is not an option.
Therefore, with the spending option off the table and since Brown and Obama’s plan is a no go from the start, then we must ask ourselves, why is Obama really attending the G20 Summit? What is he up to and how much more damage will he do?
For many, it might sound a bit far fetched, but think about it. Obama speaks of transparency, but provides none. He is always slipping his dirty deeds into legislation under the radar.
“Anarchists” and the “unemployed” are among the thousands protesting and raising all kinds of sand throughout the streets of London. One of the reasons they are protesting is due to lack of transparency. As one interviewee said this morning on CNN, “there is no transparency amongst the G20 leaders. Everything is done behind closed doors.”
Lack of transparency, empty rhetoric, lies, backroom deals all mean trouble for the people, on a global scale.
I am sure from Obama’s skewered viewpoint, such betrayal would provide several chapters to his book.
“LONDON — Divisions on how to fix the global economy deepened Wednesday ahead of a summit of 20 world leaders, as President Nicolas Sarkozy said France and Germany believe the summit action is too weak.
Representatives of the Group of 20 leaders negotiated through the night seeking to overcome disputes on huge spending packages, reforming the financial system and clamping down on tax havens and bonuses for corporate chiefs.
China’s President Hu Jintao repeated a call for revamping the financial system as he headed for Thursday’s summit in a tightly secured zone in London, while US President Barack Obama and Britain’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown held a breakfast meeting to fine-tune their positions on the crisis.
Sarkozy said the G20 representatives had made no agreement on the summit’s final communique despite the marathon talks.
‘Neither France nor Germany are satisfied with the proposals as they currently stand,’ said the French leader who has threatened to walk out of the summit if the measures are not bolstered to his liking.
‘I will not associate myself with a false summit that concludes with a statement of hollow compromises, that does not address the problems that we face,’ he warned.
Sarkozy told French radio that he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had agreed that the current draft ‘didn’t add up….”
Thank God, not everyone is bending to the will of Obama. Let us pray that Obama did not take any of Geithner’s advice to Europe with him or in his zestful pretense to please give away the shop (rather what’s left of it).
GORDON BROWN’S carefully laid plans for a G20 deal on worldwide tax cuts have been scuppered by an eve-of-summit ambush by European leaders.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, last night led the assault on the prime minister’s ‘global new deal’ for a $2 trillion-plus fiscal stimulus to end the recession.
‘I will not let anyone tell me that we must spend more money,’ she said.
The Spanish finance minister, Pedro Solbes, also dismissed new cash being pledged at Thursday’s London summit.
‘In these conditions I and the rest of my colleagues from the eurozone believe there is no room for new fiscal stimulus plans,’ he said.
Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, has insisted that ‘radical reform’ of capitalism is more important than tax cutting.
The attacks on Brown’s ambitions for the G20 to inject more money into the world economy come at the end of a week where the prime minister has travelled to three continents to build support for his proposals.
The likely deadlock at this week’s meeting will kill any remaining hope that Alistair Darling’s April 22 budget will offer significant tax cuts.
The assault by European Union leaders also represents a defeat for President Barack Obama, who is desperate for other big economies to copy his $800 billion stimulus plan.
‘There will be a very long communiqué, but there won’t be much in it,’ said a Washington economist.
Adding to the disarray, a draft of the agreement Brown hopes to secure was leaked to a German news magazine, prompting suggestions of ‘dirty tricks’ by Berlin.
The draft stated that Britain wanted a ‘$2 trillion’ global fiscal stimulus. However, the figure appeared only in brackets, indicating agreement on the package had yet to be reached.
The stimulus would boost world growth by 2% and employment by 19m, the draft said. The rest of the document was mainly general pledges.
‘We believe that an open world economy, based on the principles of the market, effective regulation and strong global institutions, can ensure sustainable globalisation with rising well-being for all,’ it said.
A No 10 source expressed ‘disappointment’ at the leak and insisted the $2 trillion figure was not new money but an expression of the total tax and spending packages already pledged by G20 members.
Privately, government officials admit that no further fiscal stimulus will be announced this week, although there will be a $250 billion package for the International Monetary Fund to help rescue struggling poor nations.
Lord Mandelson, the business secretary, said he sympathised with the concerns of demonstrators planning to disrupt the London summit. ‘There is understandable frustration and some anger. The global economic systems has stalled and what we have got to do is get it started.’
George Osborne, the shadow chancellor, yesterday warned Brown against further tax cuts in the budget. ‘When it comes to your plans for a second fiscal stimulus, I say this Gordon Brown: enough is enough,’ he said in a speech. ‘We will not let you play roulette with the public finances yet again.’
UK officials have not given up on the idea there could be agreement on a fresh boost for the world economy later in the year. ‘It is likely that there will be another heads of government meeting probably in Asia in the autumn,’ said an official.
‘This will be the forum where the next round of stimulus will be discussed.’
Brown still hopes to establish the IMF as an informal referee for international tax cuts. The plan is that the Washington-based body could advise on the timing of any future cuts.
Merkel’s criticism drew an angry response from Labour MPs. Denis MacShane, the former Europe minister, said: ‘Who does Mrs Merkel think is going to buy Mercedes and BMWs if she . . . says putting demand into the economy is a bad thing?’ Another Labour MP said: ‘One has to ask who had something to gain from the leak of the communiqué. This feels like a dirty trick.’
There are growing fears that protests at the summit venue, the ExCeL centre in London’s Docklands could be marred by violence. Scotland Yard will be deploying specialist officers trained to use 50,000-volt Taser stun guns.
Now that Brown has been put in place, one would think that that is the end of it. Of course, it would be too much to hope that Obama would take a page out of their book and consider it a lesson learned. So then, I ask, what is Obama really up to in Europe. It would not surprise me if Obama unveiled an agenda leading the United States that much closer to socialism.
In response to suggestions by China, Russia, and other countries around the world calling on the International Monetary Fund to explore a multi-national currency, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6) has introduced a resolution that would bar the dollar from being replaced by any foreign currency.
“Yesterday, during a Financial Services Committee hearing, I asked Secretary Geithner if he would denounce efforts to move towards a global currency and he answered unequivocally that he would,” said Bachmann. “And President Obama gave the nation the same assurances. But just a day later, Secretary Geithner has left the option on the table. I want to know which it is. The American people deserve to know.”
Asked today about a currency proposal from China at a Council on Foreign Relations event, Secretary Geithner stated he was open to supporting it. Despite attempts to clarify his remarks later in the day, the unguarded initial response calls into question his true intentions.
Although Title 31, Sec. 5103 USC prohibits foreign currency from being recognized in the U.S., the President has the power to engage foreign governments in treaties, and the President is principally responsible for the interpretations and implementation of those treaties according to the Constitution. As a result, legislation prohibiting the President and Treasury from issuing or agreeing that the U.S. will adopt an international currency would need to come in the form of a Constitutional Amendment differentiating a treaty used to implement an international currency in the U.S. from other types of treaty agreements.
