Corporate Execs Responsible for Creating Jobs Not Invited to White House Jobs Summit

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Another Obama “dog and pony show” with an audience stacked with his supporters. We can expect the constructive content of this “summit” to be nil.

A large number of union executives and academics who were heavy donors to President Obama’s 2008 campaign will be at the table for his White House jobs summit Thursday.

But few big Obama donors are among the top corporate executives on the list — and they are the ones who will bear the burden of creating the jobs that are needed to bring down the staggering unemployment rate.

And the Chamber of Commerce, with whom the Obama administration has battled over health care and climate change policies, and the National Federation of Independent Business confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday that they were not invited to attend the forum on expanding job creation.

According to Federal Election Committee records, of the 29 attendees named on a partial guest list of the 133 forum attendees, five donated personally to Obama while four others work at organizations that contributed heavily to political action committees that supported his campaign.

Several attendees are labor leaders whose political action committees contributed impressive amounts to Obama’s war chest, including one group that gave nearly $29.5 million.

Court Issues Reunification Plan in Rifqa Bary Case

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Rifqa Bary, the teen who ran away from home, in fear of her life, after she converted from Islam to Christianity, will be made to “hear her parents’ explanation of their religious beliefs and that the parents must listen to the girl’s explanation of her Christian faith”. What does that mean? She knows about Islam, since she grew up with it. Also, it’s highly unlikely that her parents are going to care about anything she has to say about her conversion to Christianity.
Robert Spenser from Jihad Watch, makes this valid point:
“It’s inconceivable that the father is going to say, ‘Well, in Islam, we have to kill the apostate, and thus we’ll have to kill you.’ He’s not going to say that in front of the caseworker”.
Continue to pray for this brave young lady.

The proposal was filed Monday in Franklin County Juvenile Court in Columbus, Ohio, by a government caseworker. It says 17-year-old Rifqa Bary needs to hear her parents’ explanation of their religious beliefs and that the parents must listen to the girl’s explanation of her Christian faith so that both sides can better understand Bary’s summer runaway to Florida.

Bary has said she feared her father would harm or kill her for converting from Islam. Her father has denied this claim, but the reunification plan leaves open the possibility that the girl may not be forced to return home. Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, concurs.

“She shouldn’t return home — and if it were any other situation, there would be no possibility of her returning home,” he argues. “If she were a Christian girl who had fled from her family and converted to Islam, nobody would be talking about her going home. Islam has this powerful deception machine in the United States.”

“Unfurling the False Flag” by Jack Kinsella

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Like everyone else, I’ve been watching the political kabuki dance unfold over the past year with a mixed sense of dread and horror.

There was a general sense of agreement that whatever is going on with the economy, it appears to be deliberate. Where there are two possible course of action, the administration’s choice always seems to be the one most obviously wrong.

Joe Biden’s “gird your loins” speech from the campaign trail about how Obama is going to be tested, and how it is going to look like he’s got it exactly backwards keeps playing in my head. . .

“Mark my words,” said Candidate Joe Biden last October in Seattle.”Watch. We’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.

“And he’s going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it’s not going to be apparent initially; it’s not going to be apparent that we’re right. So gird your loins.”

Everyone dismissed it at the time as one of Joe Biden’s gaffes — and therefore, not worthy of further comment.

But I always suspected that it was more a case of Biden inadvertently blending facts he heard during a long-range strategic planning session into a stump speech.

On July 16th, in a speech delivered to AARP members at a town hall meeting, Biden accidentally leaked another planned event when he announced;

“The status quo is unsustainable. . . We’re going to go bankrupt as a nation,” he told his stunned audience. But was that a gaffe? Given the administration’s economic policies, I’m not so sure that isn’t part of a larger plan.

The dollar continues to collapse and the Fed is monetizing the debt, which historically is the first step on the slide toward economic hyperinflation. The simple fact is that the US dollar has been hopelessly compromised. It has been over-collateralized to the point there is nothing left to borrow against.

Whatever happened to the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Canada and Mexico and the introduction of a replacement currency like the ‘amero’?

Republican Congressman Virgil Goode introduced a Congressional resolution blocking the creation of a North American Union in early 2007. Similar resolutions have been introduced in several state legislatures – in Montana’s case, the resolution passed nearly unanimously.

In July 2007, the US House of Representatives easily approved a measure that would cut off federal funds for an existing trade group set up by the three countries. Similar overexposure in Mexico and Canada made moving forward too politically risky for all concerned, so the idea was quietly shelved.

The fact is, the idea of a North American Union (NAU) was under discussion because Joe Biden is right. The status quo IS unsustainable, and since the public won’t come along willingly, then, to quote the old gangster movies, they’re going to have to ‘muss us up’ a bit.

Ok, so who are ‘they’? There IS a ‘money trust’ — a cabal, if you will, of the world’s top bankers. They are the ones who control and manipulate the international money supply. This trust DOES exist. See “Is There Really a Money Trust?”

Like the members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberger Group, the various UN foundations and NGOs, and dozens of non-governmental ‘think tanks’, the members of the Money Trust are not evil men planning nefarious deeds, but elitists who are willing to make the hard choices for the good of mankind.

Caiphas did not think himself evil when he suggested it would be expedient for one man to die (Jesus) to spare the whole people from Roman retribution. Indeed, Caiaphas proved himself a capable politician capable of making the hard choices when called upon.

In today’s world, he’d have probably been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

According to Bible prophecy, there will exist four spheres of global power in the last days. The ‘global’ government of antichrist is ‘global’ in the sense of what is today called “the West.”

It isn’t truly global, since the other three spheres of power — Gog-Magog, the Kings of the South and the Kings of the East are all independent entities.

Indeed, each of these, at one time or another during the Tribulation, come into military confrontation with the antichrist.

But it is the antichrist’s governmental policies that determine what the rest of the world will do, in much the same manner that the US does now. When the US housing market collapsed, it reverberated around the world, hurting friend and foe alike.

To illustrate how that works, the two nations worst hurt when our market tanked were simultaneously our closest ally, (Japan) and our most dangerous adversary, (China).

Revelation 13:17-18 says that during the Tribulation, the antichrist will have centralized control of the world’s (read: the West, and therefore, indirectly the rest of the world) economy, religious system and government.

The operative word here is ‘centralized.’ We’ve already seen a live demonstration of centralization and how it works, as applied to the media industry.

A generation ago, there were more than 1300 independently owned and operated newspapers. That’s 1300 independent editorial boards.

Today’s media is concentrated in the hands of just five super media conglomerates, Viacom, NewsCorp, AOL/Time/Warner, Disney and GE.

They control everything you see and hear on TV, at the movies, read in the newspaper or hear on the radio. Viacom is French-owned.

Viacom owns CBS, UPN, MTV, Nickelodeon, Showtime,Sundance Channel, VH-1, King World Productions, Infinity Broadcasting and Comedy Central.

It also owns Blockbuster Video, the world’s largest video rental chain, and Blockbuster Music; book publishing, including Simon & Schuster, Scribners and Macmillan; film, video and television production, including Paramount Pictures and a 50 percent interest in United Cinemas International.

What’s left? Doesn’t seem like there’s anything they don’t own. But whatever it might be, you can bet it belongs to one of the other four. That’s how millions of Americans can participate in thousands of national ‘tea parties’ while the majority of the country stays in the dark about it.

It appears that the elites of the banking industry and their allies like the CFR and Trilats (and so on) have decided to force the issue. If America won’t voluntarily subject itself to supranational control, then its time to make one of those hard decisions.

In this case, tip over the economy. Once its tipped, do everything possible to ensure it stays tipped. Triple the deficit. Borrow until there are no more lenders, then start inventing money — and then burn it on useless programs that make things worse, like ‘Cash for Clunkers’ or a trillion dollar ‘stimulus’ that remains under lock and key — ‘spent’ as it were, but not distributed.

Like locking next month’s rent money into a two year CD and then paying your rent with a rubber check and a ‘payday’ loan from the local loan shark.

I know it sounds nuts. But Gerald Celente sounds even crazier. Unfortunately, he’s not. Celente is the head of the Trends Research Institute, which analyzes current trends to forecast future ones.

Celente’s record for accuracy is nothing short of astonishing.

“Five More Amateur Mistakes By the Obama Administration” by John Hawkins

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Since he has been elected, Barack Obama has been like a four year old wearing water wings and desperately trying to reach the edge of the pool. In other words, he has been completely out of his depth. Who could have known that giving soaring speeches about “hope” and “change” while voting “present” on the tough issues wouldn’t be enough preparation for the most important job on Planet Earth — oh wait, millions of Americans knew that and pointed it out at every opportunity. Unfortunately, the media was too busy obsessing over Sarah Palin’s wardrobe and parody songs on the Rush Limbaugh show to actually consider whether or not a man whose biggest accomplishment was winning a Democratic primary against Hillary Clinton was qualified to be President.

Of course, we can debate Obama’s ideological decisions all day. Does the country need socialized medicine? Should he have pursued that staggeringly expensive stimulus program? Has he been applying enough pressure on Iran? The answers to those questions are no, no, and no — but, there’s a more important question we need to consider: does Barack Obama know what he’s doing?

Early on, the Obama Administration made a lot of foolish mistakes. Obama selected numerous tax cheats for his Cabinet. They gave the Russians a button that was supposed to say “reset”– but that actually said “overcharge.” They gave our best allies, the Brits, 25 DVDs of American movie classics — that were not only wildly inappropriate, but wouldn’t even play in their DVD players. Unfortunately, those early gaffes have not only continued; they’ve begun to have more serious policy implications.
