With Chicago prepping and gearing up for the G8 and NATO summits in May, Obama has apparently changed the location of the G8 summit to Camp David in Maryland !!

White House security stated that the change has nothing to do with security concerns however.

They said the "atmosphere" would be better in the mountain retreat



By Associated Press, Updated: Monday, March 5, 3:39 PM -- Washington post Article

WASHINGTON — The White House abruptly announced Monday that it had scuttled plans to hold the upcoming G-8 economic summit in Chicago, and would instead host world leaders at the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland.

It was an unusually late location change for a large and highly scripted international summit and came with little explanation from the White House. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel — the former White House chief of staff who personally lobbied President Barack Obama to hold the summit in Chicago — was informed only hours before the official announcement.

White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor simply said that Camp David, the rustic retreat in the mountains of Maryland, was a setting that would allow for more intimate discussions among the G-8 leaders. He said security and the possibility of protests were not factors in the decision, noting that Obama would still host the NATO summit in his hometown of Chicago from May 20-21.

Obama says no G8 in Chicago !


Last week, an Illinois judge rules state eavesdropping law unconstitutional and now you are allowed to film police.

"Occupiers" have been planning protests for both events

Hmmm...

Perhaps Chicago decided they may not want negative publicity if and when rioting would happen with the G8 and NATO summits

Wonder if the NATO people will change their minds too

The scramble is on

They're scared of the reaction that they'll get because they know that the people are sick and tired of their games.

Rahm must have been pissed at this snub.

Damn sure won't be troubled with riots at Camp David.

Rioters will need to be careful now, the govt might call them terrorists and put them on a hit list!

I agree on both points!

Since Adbusters ran this

Hey you redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,

Against the backdrop of a global uprising that is simmering in dozens of countries and thousands of cities and towns, the G8 and NATO will hold a rare simultaneous summit in Chicago this May. The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there.

And so will we.

On May 1, 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. With a bit of luck, we’ll pull off the biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting the world has ever seen.

Followed by the 99%Spring...

The choice is in our hands. This spring, we will act on that choice and rise up in the tradition of our forefathers and foremothers. We will not be complicit with the suffering in our families for another year. We will prepare ourselves for sustained non-violent direct action.

From April 9-15 we will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to join together in the work of reclaiming our country. We will organize trainings to:

Tell the story of our economy: how we got here, who’s responsible, what a different future could look like, and what we can do about it
Learn the history of non-violent direct action, and
Get into action on our own campaigns to win change.

This spring we rise! We will reshape our country with our own hands and feet, bodies and hearts. We will take non-violent action in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi to forge a new destiny one block, one neighborhood, one city, one state at a time.

This whole event was stacking up to be disaster filled with infiltrators and professional agitators from all angles. They all have a cause and they all want press coverage even the black mask bunch.

Clearly there was enough intel to warrant this move to Camp David. They've been watching and studying this movement since its inception and most likely steering it as well. However, they cannot control and influence all of the radical groups that want a piece of this pie. That's the big unknown.

The NATO summit is still being held there. We'll see... In any event all gatherings like the G8 and NATO fall under direct jurisdiction of the DHS and the Secret Service. That's Federal Jurisdiction so moving this to Camp David is most likely a good thing. Camp David was built for events like these. Security is a no brainer up on the Mountain.

It's an election year. The White House doesn't want people to have days and days of images on TV of the people protesting their guy. It's all election year spin and media control. More "TRANSPARENCY" ...

"atmosphere' ...
yeah, okay ...
