A time for global action
By Barack Obama
Monday, March 23, 2009

WASHINGTON: We are living through a time of global economic challenges that cannot be met by half measures or the isolated efforts of any nation. Now, the leaders of the Group of 20 have a responsibility to take bold, comprehensive and coordinated action that not only jump-starts recovery, but also launches a new era of economic engagement to prevent a crisis like this from ever happening again.

No one can deny the urgency of action. A crisis in credit and confidence has swept across borders, with consequences for every corner of the world. For the first time in a generation, the global economy is contracting and trade is shrinking.

Trillions of dollars have been lost, banks have stopped lending, and tens of millions will lose their jobs across the globe. The prosperity of every nation has been endangered, along with the stability of governments and the survival of people in the most vulnerable parts of the world.

Once and for all, we have learned that the success of the American economy is inextricably linked to the global economy. There is no line between action that restores growth within our borders and action that supports it beyond.

If people in other countries cannot spend, markets dry up -- already we've seen the biggest drop in American exports in nearly four decades, which has led directly to American job losses. And if we continue to let financial institutions around the world act recklessly and irresponsibly, we will remain trapped in a cycle of bubble and bust. That is why the upcoming London Summit is directly relevant to our recovery at home.

My message is clear: The United States is ready to lead, and we call upon our partners to join us with a sense of urgency and common purpose. Much good work has been done, but much more remains.


Like him or not its a quite savvy way of twisting his fellow world leaders arms who are reluctant to do any further action to stem the global economic meltdown going into the G-20 summit.

I can hear some of the New World Order loons laying an egg over this one claiming he is promoting a one world government.

Personally if they are plotting a new world order... I wish they'd hurry up and get on with it... its not like the individual nations are managing things any better.

Obviously, this is urgent. Because, if given any amount of thought or process, the masses will wake up to their agenda in time to stop them.

I have an alternative to Obama's plan. Let's stay cool, and not rush into anything.

Bless us, in Liberty, by God,
O-315

A response from none that matters:


A time for global action
By Barack Obama
Monday, March 23, 2009

WASHINGTON: We are living through a time of global economic challenges that cannot be met by half measures or the isolated efforts of any nation.


Half-measures and 'isolated' efforts are never adequate to meet any challenge, by definition. The only fact to be addressed here is that of the 'global' economic challenge. Clearly, and distinctly you are telling the world that they must all 'work together' since this is a 'global' problem. But is it?

This 'challenge' exists independently of nationality - that is very true - but to fail to recognize the reason is foolish and childishly manipulative. The reason it is a 'global' problem is because the 'cause' is global - not national. So how is that possible?

Because the banks are global, transnational, and seeking to become supranational.


Now, the leaders of the Group of 20 have a responsibility to take bold, comprehensive and coordinated action that not only jump-starts recovery, but also launches a new era of economic engagement to prevent a crisis like this from ever happening again.


The "leaders" of the G20..., bold? responsible? coordinated? - Hardly.

The 'boldness' you preemptively attribute to them is obviously intended to dissuade any objections from those who must bear the full weight of the decision, namely, those who pay for it. At the risk of sounding like a "NWO loon" how do 20 nations cooperate comprehensively? Do the other nations of the world matter at all?

Were this a vehicle, I would not object to the 'jump-start' analogy thrown about by the intelligentsia, including you. But this is not a machine we are referring to here, it is an economy, one that is affected by emotion, and trust. What emotion, what trust, are we "re-establishing" here? That the Central Banks are infallible? That we simply MUST have a Central Banking Authority to exists in a state of supranational authority to 'control' economies? And of course we are to blindly 'trust' that this is the "best" solution? Because the operate on our behalf, almost like clergy, devoted in heart and soul to the prosperity of the people from whom they derive their wealth?

This "new era of economic engagement" - sounds like a familiar phrase. What paradigms will change, exactly? What people will suddenly and irrevocably become bereft of economic fluidity? And perhaps more telling, what people will suddenly become the equivalent of economic gods?

What will you do to ensure that not only the mega-industrialists are protected, but the people whose jobs have been given over to other economies, whose skills and trades will become utterly diluted and no longer viable?

"...to prevent a crisis like this from ever happening again."

To prevent a crisis like WHAT? Our monetary policy maker, the government-sanctioned monopoly that is the Fed, stopped issuing the M3 report, has personnel running our treasury - explicitly free from challenge or redress. You can't order the Fed to do anything, or explain anything. WHAT CRISIS? Can you describe it? Can they? Will they? Or are we to pretend that it's all about AIG bonuses? We still don't know about derivatives, we are only NOW finding out about the money we now owe the Fed that was used to shore up European Banks, and others.

The only way to prevent this from ever r happening again is to revoke the Fed's charter and print our own money. Which is to say - it's not a GLOBAL problem to America that the Federal Government gave shelter and support to an international bank who used American prestige and power to rip off the world.

But you're not talking about doing that are you? You're talking about giving them MORE control, and MORE power.


No one can deny the urgency of action. A crisis in credit and confidence has swept across borders, with consequences for every corner of the world. For the first time in a generation, the global economy is contracting and trade is shrinking.


No surprise there, If you leave a parasitic infestation on a host long enough, it WILL kill the host. And then search for another (Carbon-credits, anyone?)


Trillions of dollars have been lost, banks have stopped lending, and tens of millions will lose their jobs across the globe.


That's just wrong. Trillions were not LOST. From one perspective, the Trillions never existed at all. They were 'virtualized' by accountants who got permission to create financial vehicles which obscured the lack of backing. Now the holders want their money - the money that never existed, and your letting the Central Banks "loan" it to us, as if WE had anything to do with their scheme.


The prosperity of every nation has been endangered, along with the stability of governments and the survival of people in the most vulnerable parts of the world.


Yes, the Central bank establishment has endangered the planetary economy, purposefully, and they stand to inherit the throne; since they have all the wealth and are hording it despite global suffering.


Once and for all, we have learned that the success of the American economy is inextricably linked to the global economy. There is no line between action that restores growth within our borders and action that supports it beyond.


Because the banks force it to be so. Because you and your ilk, simply refuse to allow them to be liable for their conduct, and the bankers are just as frightened of a world where the market can't be manipulated. They know they can't compete with a free market, so their solution is, and has always been, to kill it.


If people in other countries cannot spend, markets dry up


In monies 'created' thus far by the global banking system, every person on the planet could have been 'given' enough wealth to buy a house and go to college, what do you think THAT would have done to the global economy? But no, the banks, after having been caught in crime, rates total bailout AND they get to KEEP the money, until THEY are satisfied that they can TRUST people to repay.... How did that happen, Mr. President?


-- already we've seen the biggest drop in American exports in nearly four decades, which has led directly to American job losses. And if we continue to let financial institutions around the world act recklessly and irresponsibly, we will remain trapped in a cycle of bubble and bust. That is why the upcoming London Summit is directly relevant to our recovery at home.


This is putting the cart before the horse. We are in a cycle of bubble and bust BECAUSE the BANKS get rich doing it. Not because of the people who aren't taxed enough, or controlled by governments. It was the politicians world-wide that LITERALLY ALLOWED this to happen. And now you are going to gather together and FORMALLY hand the reigns over to the bankers - because they are obviously the only one's who can 'save' us.


My message is clear: The United States is ready to lead, and we call upon our partners to join us with a sense of urgency and common purpose. Much good work has been done, but much more remains.


Your party has killed the dollar. You have allowed economic terrorism to succeed in our nation. NOW you need to revoke the Fed charter, for failure to protect the assets with which it was entrusted. Start printing our own hard currency. DO NOT PARTICIPATE in ANY action that diminishes the purchasing power of your citizens who will end up having to become further entrenched in debt-slavery to survive otherwise.

For God's sake. Please don't play along to get along anymore. You want to lead, fine. Lead, but that means we all must be able to follow you, I know I can't follow you into a further deterioration of the American Republic, whose only failure thus far has been caused by agents of external interests, who engineered this catastrophe for their own gain.



Surely, you must know that.


Well I would continue, but - no one listens anyway....

(((By the way - when I say 'your party' I refer to the single party that represents itself as two)))

I just want to say THANK YOU for your response above.

We are so far from the "truth" of the situation - that
anything might look better to the masses than what
they are being told is about to befall them.
Manipulation at its most disturbing. Fear and control and
untruths.

The foundation is hollow.
Time to rebuild in a new and more solid and honest way.

Did you notice that Mexico and Canada didn't run the articles? Anyone care to speculate why that is?
