You guys, they said a global currency system not a global currency!! Huge difference.
Nicolas Sarkozy has been accused of making a power grab to install himself as president of the European Union, a post that no longer exists after the Irish rejected the Lisbon Treaty in June.
Tony Blair launched his campaign to become the first fully-fledged President of the European Union yesterday by describing the notion of left- and right-wing politics as redundant.
Rather than a calm assessment of the global banking system, followed by a complete restructuring to control the banks and those who would continue to use them to exploit global citizens, world leaders are seizing on the opportunity provided by the Global Financial Crisis to accelerate their agenda and move rapidly toward an ever more centralized concentration of global economic control by the few of the many.
This shift will see all semblance of democratic control removed from the global financial system as faceless bureaucrats and appointees take more and more control of our daily lives through control of our money, the markets, and an ever more abstruse, clandestine and concentrated global economic system.
One has to look no further than the European Union and NAFTA in the Americas to see how increased "harmonization" has had a negative impact on citizens within the countries involved, and it doesn't take a university degree to understand that allowing those who are responsible for the global financial collapse to champion their own cause moving forward at this fragile moment in history would be the height of foolishness, and disastrous for ordinary people everywhere.
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said.
Brussels - European Union leaders Wednesday congratulated Barack Obama on his victory in the US presidential election and called on him to work with the EU to solve the world's most pressing problems.
'This is a time for a renewed commitment between Europe and the US. I want to assure Senator Obama of the support of the European Commission and of my personal support in forging this renewed commitment to face together the many challenges ahead of us,' European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said.
'We need a new deal for a new world. I sincerely hope that with the leadership of President Obama, the US will join forces with Europe to drive this new deal - for the benefit of our societies, for the benefit of the world,' he said in a statement.
Government black boxes will 'collect every email'
Internet "black boxes" will be used to collect every email and web visit in the UK under the Government's plans for a giant "big brother" database, The Independent has learnt.
Home Office officials have told senior figures from the internet and telecommunications industries that the "black box" technology could automatically retain and store raw data from the web before transferring it to a giant central database controlled by the Government.
Plans to create a database holding information about every phone call, email and internet visit made in the UK have provoked a huge public outcry. Richard Thomas, the Information Commissioner, described it as "step too far" and the Government's own terrorism watchdog said that as a "raw idea" it was "awful".
Nevertheless, ministers have said they are committed to consulting on the new Communications Data Bill early in the new year. News that the Government is already preparing the ground by trying to allay the concerns of the internet industry is bound to raise suspicions about ministers' true intentions. Further details of the database emerged on Monday at a meeting of internet service providers (ISPs) in London where representatives from BT, AOL Europe, O2 and BSkyB were given a PowerPoint presentation of the issues and the technology surrounding the Government's Interception Modernisation Programme (IMP), the name given by the Home Office to the database proposal.
Whitehall experts working on the IMP unit told the meeting the security and intelligence agencies wanted to use the stored data to help fight serious crime and terrorism, and said the technology would allow them to create greater "capacity" to monitor all communication traffic on the internet. The "black boxes" are an attractive option for the internet industry because they would be secure and not require any direct input from the ISPs.
During the meeting Whitehall officials also tried to reassure the industry by suggesting that many smaller ISPs would be unaffected by the "black boxes" as these would be installed upstream on the network and hinted that all costs would be met by the Government.
"It was clear the 'back box' is the technology the Government will use to hold all the data. But what isn't clear is what the Home Secretary, GCHQ and the security services intend to do with all this information in the future," said a source close to the meeting.
He added: "They said they only wanted to return to a position they were in before the emergence of internet communication, when they were able to monitor all correspondence with a police suspect. The difference here is they will be in a much better position to spy on many more people on the basis of their internet behaviour. Also there's a grey area between what is content and what is traffic. Is what is said in a chat room content or just traffic?"
Ministers say plans for the database have not been confirmed, and that it is not their intention to introduce monitoring or storage equipment that will check or hold the content of emails or phonecalls on the traffic.
A spokesman for the Home Office said that Monday's meeting provided a "chance to engage with small communication service providers" ahead of the formal public consultation next year. He added: "We need to work closely with the internet service providers and the communication service providers. The meeting was to show the top-line challenges faced in the future. We are public about the IMP, but we are still working out the detail. There will a consultation on the Communications Data Bill early next year."
A spokesman for the Internet Service Providers Association said the organisation was pleased the Home Office had addressed its members and was keen to continue dialogue while awaiting a formal consultation.
Database plans were first announced by the Prime Minister in February. It is not clear where the records will be held but GCHQ may eventually be the project's home.
I keep coming across articles about this Labour government speaking of it’s incompetence, ‘it’s missing the point, ineptitude, not listening to the people‘ etc.
You see speeches of Gordon Brown, speaking of the ‘new invigorated Labour’, making it the party for the people, accountable to the people on the one hand, and trying to secretly sell Britain’s sovereignty to Brussels on the other. That is of course, continuing on from Tony Blair’s legacy of signing over chunks of this country to the EU too.
The articles lament on how ‘Brown isn’t listening, poor us!’ and other defeatist nonsense, some even going to far as to criticise the New World Order puppet. But they are all missing the point.
People don’t want to admit it, and even those that do seem to have their views restricted by the mind control of political correctness, but the truth is Gordon Brown couldn’t give a # about Britain or the people in it. He answers to the Bilderberg Group, just like that other minion, Blair did.
In theory, the voice of the people is supposed to be the deciding factor in every decision the government makes. Nowadays that is just a useful sentence the politicians use to get applause at their conferences.
It is all fake.
We are not living in a time of democracy, we are now living in the era of Corporatism. Corporate interests dictate the actions of the government. In fact, you could consider it a corporation in its own right. Keeping this in mind, I’ll explain a few things about what that little # at Number 10, Downing Street is doing and why.
Firstly though, I think I should set a few main goals of his so it will be easier to see how it all fits together. Remember, he couldn’t give a crap what the people want. He will keep trying to push this agenda until he is STOPPED.

From a Bloomberg article today:
``Nothing in the global economy will be the same as before,'' Sarkozy said yesterday in Annecy, France, as he announced plans to create a sovereign wealth fund to invest in French companies, protecting them from foreign ``predators'' after the global stock-market rout.
He is obviously dead-set toward a global currency, despite saying so in specific terms, isn't he?!!?

They were right that this current system of the wealthy elite taking advantage of the masses would do damage to everyone eventually, whatever country you live in.
World leaders will now be looking at ways to isolate themselves from the risks of other nations and their financial systems."
Wrong answer cupcake.
The "World Leaders got exactly what they wanted from "Globalization."
They set up the wealth resivoirs of the US, (primarily) the EU and others to be drained dry. This was intentional and allowed the first true 'redistribution' of worldwide wealth to begin. The world leaders were collaborators in this and have been handsomely rewarded for their duplicity.
It also set up a "Crisis" that acts as the lead in for the new "SYSTEM" that you are currently defending.
You are absolutely correct in that wealthy elite are taking advantage of the masses. The wealthy elite of this planet have nothing better to do than get wealthier. They work together to continue their consolidation of wealth and control because that is "what they do."
No need for conspiracies here. Does anybody actually believe that the super rich money families don't know each other intimately and work together for their own benefit? Globalization was planned and was a roaring success. It did what it was originally planned to do and any WORLD LEADER that tells you different is a fool or a liar.
The next step in the plan is a GLOBAL system/currency/scam.
Bank on it.
