The Scheme of World Power?

The 58th Bilderberg Meeting was held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010f with 130 participants discussing the future of:  Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.      

I find it especially humorous the topic of global cooling, as opposed to global warming. What is not so funny, is how the Bilderberg meetings and other think tanks influence our lives.      

David Rockefeller heads the Member Advisory Group and the list is a who’s who of people of prominence.  A third of the people are from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion. http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/meeting_2010_2.html      

A few select photos of some attendees can be found here at http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2010/jun/09/bilderberg-spain  and at http://www.danielestulin.com/galeria/fotos/bilderberg2010/  

Wouldn’t you have loved to have been a fly on the wall?  Which one of the members would have held the fly swatter?      

“You don’t need a conspiracy site to know what these supposedly elite and powerful people were ‘secretly’ meeting about. They weren’t talking about their golf handicaps; they’re talking about the economic shape of the world. They’re asking if the euro will survive. They’re wondering if America will survive. What will the world look like a year from now?” …      

There are forces trying to make you believe everything is OK and that more government and more spending is the way to go. There are forces who want to gain more international power and control. And then there’s you. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,594127,00.html      

And then there’s you.      

Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, claims Bilderberg’s goal, is “the creation of a global network of giant cartels, more powerful than any nation on Earth, destined to control the necessities of life of the rest of humanity, obviously from their vantage point, for our own good and in our benefit – the great unwashed as they call us.”      

Charlie Skelton summed up some of the connections nicely at his blog,  http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2010/jun/14/charlie-skelton-bilderberg-2010      

One of the participants snapped by Quierosaber is the glacial senior fellow of the Hudson Institute,[sic http://www.hudson.org/]   Marie-Josée Kravis, (wife of Henry Kravis, head of private equity megafirm KKR). The tax-exempt Hudson Institute is a US “thinktank” which has a clearly stated aim: “We seek to guide global leaders in government and business.” It’s funded by good and wise people like Monsanto, DuPont, Pfizer, McDonald’s, General Atomics, IBM, Proctor & Gamble, and Conrad Black (Bilderberg attendee and currently guest of Florida correctional institution).      

The Hudson Institute was set up by the Rand Corporation (which had previously been set up by the Douglas Aircraft Company to advise the US military). In a nutshell, that’s who Marie-Josée Kravis works for, and that’s who George Osborne spent Bilderberg 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 listening to. In the words of Aretha Franklin: who’s zoomin’ who? And who the hell asked these foundations for their guidance in the first place? Stop issuing reports! Stop thinktanking! Stop presenting “well-timed recommendations to leaders in government”. Mind your own unelected business for a change. And pay some tax while you’re about it.      

 Educate Yourself  blog claims, “There is a worldwide conspiracy being orchestrated by an extremely powerful and influential group of genetically-related individuals (at least at the highest echelons) which include many of the world’s wealthiest people, top political leaders, and corporate elite…” http://www.educate-yourself.org/nwo/      

What about the 200 other think tanks besides Bilderberg, that are intermingling in public policy, and possibly manipulating governments and people?       

The Tavistock Institute: A Think Tank or A Propaganda Factory?

 The Tavistock Institute website http://www.tavinstitute.org/ says, “The Institute is engaged with evaluation and action research, organisational development and change consultancy, executive coaching and professional development, all in service of supporting sustainable change and ongoing learning.”      

Mmmm, sustainable change? Change you can believe in?       

The http://greatamericanpoetryshow.com/articles-and-essays/tavistock-the-best-kept-secret-in-america/ shows a more opportunistic organization whose influence and power may not be used for the good of the people :      

Tavistock Institute is headquartered in London. Its prophet, Sigmond Freud, settled in Maresfield Gardens when he moved to England. He was given a mansion by Princess Bonaparte. Tavistock’s pioneer work in behavioral science along Freudian lines of “controlling” humans established it as the world center of foundation ideology. Its network now extends from the University of Sussex to the U.S. through the Stanford Research Institute, Esalen, MIT, Hudson Institute, Heritage Foundation, Center of Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown, where State Dept. personal are trained, US Air Force Intelligence, and the Rand and Mitre corporations. The personnel of the corporations are required to undergo indoctrination at one or more of these Tavistock controlled institutions. A network of secret groups, the Mont Pelerin Society [sic http://www.montpelerin.org/] , Trilateral Commission,[sichttp://www.trilateral.org/ ]  Ditchley Foundation, [http://www.ditchley.co.uk/] and the Club of Rome[sic http://www.clubofrome.org/eng/home/ ]  is conduit for instructions to the Tavistock network.      

That’s some network.  Here’s a few more think tanks, errr- networks to think about:      

  • Brookings Institution
  • Council on Foreign Relations
  • Hudson Institute
  • Trilateral Commission
  • Kepner-Tregoe
  • Rational choice theory
  • http://www.rand.org/
  • Amron Harry Katz
  •  Via Wiki, “Critics such as Ralph Nader have suggested that, because of the private nature of the funding of some think tanks, their results are biased to a varying degree.  Some argue that members will be inclined to promote or publish only those results which ensure the continued flow of funds from private donors.” (emphasis mine.)      

    Continuing the flow of funds, my antennae turn to The World Health Organization.  WHO, with it secretive list of members  failed to disclose their connection and possible/probable influence by major pharmaceutical companies in declaring the now defunct Swine Flu Pandemic.    http://www.resistnet.com/profiles/blogs/h1n1-vaccine-scandal-world  

    The Bilderberg Meetings were covered in the press, somewhat. http://de2008a2012.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/bilderberg-2010-analisis-suma-y-seguimos/ writes ” the abandonment of secrecy purest of these Sects / corporations / lobbies has been caused in a gesture more than a sign of their absolute power over a society completely drugged with their vices and cultural naivety and utter spiritual darkness.”  There are also numerous links to press and video coverage of the meeting .       

    Ideological propaganda or ideological solutions?  Who pays for think tanks?  The taxpayer. The capitalist. And then there’s you.        

    The government funds, wholly or in part, activities at approximately 30 Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs). FFRDCs, are unique independent nonprofit entities sponsored and funded by the U.S. government to meet specific long-term technical needs that cannot be met by any other single organization. FFRDCs typically assist government agencies with scientific research and analysis, systems development, and systems acquisition. They bring together the expertise and outlook of government, industry, and academia to solve complex technical problems. These FFRDCs include the RAND Corporation, the MITRE Corporation, the Institute for Defense Analyses, the Aerospace Corporation, the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and other organizations supporting various departments within the U.S. Government.     

    Master Government List of FFRDCs can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/nsf05306/ and a updated list at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/ffrdclist/ and at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federally_funded_research_and_development_centers. Partial funding disclosure can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/about/budget/fy2011/pdf/22-Facilities_fy2011.pdf       

    Blurred between the FFRDCs and Think Tanks, we have is what is referred to as “the twilight zone.”  Blurring the lines of The Constitution they often acts as a quasi government as reported in “The Quasi Government: Hybrid Organizations with Both Government and Private Sector Legal Characteristics.”  report at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL30533.pdf    

    Characteristically most people are more familiar with the The Twilight Zone TV show, than the influence and power of these organizations. Throw in media think tanks like such as the conservative Heritage Foundation http://www.heritage.org/ and the Cato Institute, who promote libertarian social and economic reforms and you see who influences government policy, and the push toward globalization and a New World Order.   The liberal Tellus Institute  http://www.tellus.org/ website headline reads, ” research and action for a global civilization of  sustainability, equity, and well-being.”  What action and whose best interest will be served is anyone’s guess.

    John Perry Newsmax wrote an article that suggested a military coup to overthrow President Obama was a real possibility. 

    The article has since disappeared from the Newsmax site but here it is :

    Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’

    Tuesday, September 29, 2009 10:35 AMBy: John L. Perry
    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic. America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

     Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

  • Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
  •  They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
  •  They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
  •  They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
  •  They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
  •  They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.
  •  They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.
  •  So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan’s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

    Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

    What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

    Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

    Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

  • Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

    Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

     In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

    I clearly understand the intent of the author is to say he and many members of the military do not agree with President Obama’s policies and seek an alternative to the direction our country is heading.  So do a lot of people.  While The President’s poll numbers are slipping, to suggest a domestic military intervention could happen is wrong- but it is the author’s opinion. 

    Should the article have been removed? 

    I don’t think so. 

    While I defend the office of President and disagree with his politics, he is The Commander and Chief of the greatest nation on earth and is still deserving of the respect of the office. 

    Perry wrote “So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?”  We say, you take orders and do as you are told. Period.  You do not attempt to overthrow government and oust President Obama- that is the voters job!   Suggesting an uprising is degrading to the military personnel who fight the current wars and is equally offensive to veterans. 

    You think those soldiers who went to Vietnam totally agreed with American policy at the time? 

    The article should stand as a reminder to freedom of speech and Perry’s opinion. Removing it is censorship and curtailing freedom of the press.  I don’t have to agree or disagree, but I can sure as $hit flip to a new web site in a matter of seconds.

    I’d like to turn off health care reform, ACORN, the Olympic endeavor and other Obama propaganda with a wave of the wand (and Katie Couric too), instead we rant about politics and life here,  just like Perry does on Newsmax.  While we do not suggest a military over throw, we also hope no one decides to remove and delete our posts either.

    You can write Newsmax directly and ask them why they scrubbed the article http://www.newsmax.com/contact/editorial/

    Auditing The Federal Reserve is long overdue.  http://www.federalreserve.gov/oig/oig_bio.htm Elizabeth Coleman as the inspector general of the Federal Reserve of the United States and is supposed to be responsible for preventing and detecting waste, fraud, and abuse, but in a videotaped Congressional testimony, she acknowledged that she can’t account for many trillions of dollars of our taxpayers money. TRILLIONS.   Specifically she says she knows nothing about nine trillion dollars ($9,000,000,000,000) that is claimed to be unaccounted for. 

    Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida on May 6th asks about the huge piles of money that the Federal Reserve is responsible for,  saying “I have to tell you honestly, I am shocked to find out that nobody at the Federal Reserve, including the Inspector General, is keeping track of [the unaccounted for trillions].” sourced at http://www.examiner.com/x-6495-US-Intelligence-Examiner~y2009m5d22-Federal-Reserve-Inspector-General-hedges-on-trillions-missing-in-Congressional-hearing

    In an effort to find trillions of dollars we turn to The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, “To amend title 31, United States Code, to reform the manner in which the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States and the manner in which such audits are reported, and for other purposes. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1207 .  By my account it must have taken several years to misplace so much money, so any deceit has been going on for years. 

    While the the Reserve is owned by its member banks and not by the government, it issues currency and charges interest.  These banks certainly would never want an audit, but the American people do and so does Congressman Ron Paul with over 200 of your elected officials as co-sponsors of the bill.   www.ronpaul.com continues to crash my system so enter at your own risk. 

    Is there any money or gold at Fort Knox either? My bet is that there is nothing but gold dust laying in the vaults.  As Proof from The U.S. Mint on June 22, 2009- http://catalog.usmint.gov/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=13238&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=10191&top_category=10191:

    Production of United States Mint American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coins has been temporarily suspended because of unprecedented demand for American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins . Currently, all available 22-karat gold blanks are being allocated to the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin Program, as the United States Mint is required by Public Law 99-185 to produce these coins “in quantities sufficient to meet public demand . . . .”

    The United States Mint will resume the American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coin Programs once sufficient inventories of gold bullion blanks can be acquired to meet market demand for all three American Eagle Gold Coin products. Additionally, as a result of the recent numismatic product portfolio analysis, fractional sizes of American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins will no longer be produced.

    America is out of gold and money and we are headed up a shit creek.  So what about silver and other metals to make bullets and guns?  Can’t seem to buy that easily either, “It’s no secret, of course, that small-denomination bullion is hard to come by and gun sales are way up, but finding out first-hand that this stuff is unavailable brings home the reality of the situation, which is that the social mood is growing darker. On the surface everything looks normal; no one is protesting in the streets, the trash is getting picked up, and elections are as orderly as ever. But the market is quietly reallocating resources as individuals insure against a systemic breakdown” http://news.goldseek.com/DollarCollapse/1245697526.php

    Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Traficant warned numerous times of looming catastrophe before being sentenced to prison for being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and requiring office workers to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat in Washington, D.C..  He is currently serving an eight-year prison term with a projected release date of September 2, 2009http://www.bop.gov/iloc2/InmateFinderServlet?Transaction=NameSearch&needingMoreList=false&LastName=traficant&Middle=&FirstName=james&Race=U&Sex=U&Age=&x=0&y=0  Traficant turned down an offer of early release to a halfway house in Youngstown, Ohio because the prison official there testified against him.  Either way government officials must be so happy to have him tucked away having said: 

    “It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.” http://www.apfn.net/DOC-100_bankruptcy.htm

    We need to bring accountability to the Federal Reserve now before Obama and anyone else in government spends one more dime.  Have these people been tripping over quarters to pick up pennies for so long to be so ignorant and incompetent or it it just the little old taxpayer who continues to deny we are in a financial meltdown? 

    Amazingly, gold was recovered from the rubble of The World Trade Center but  http://factsnotfairies.blogspot.com/2009/06/they-hate-us-for-our-gold.html notes the convenience of it all and explores the theory that something was amiss.

    “We are on the verge of a global transformation.  All we [ the CFR ] need is the right major crisis and the nation[s] will accept the New World Order.”  End Quote.  David Rockefeller: Founder and Honorary Chairman, Council of the Americas; Chairman, Americas Society; Founder, Forum of the Americas; Chairman, Emeritus, Council on Foreign Relations [CFR]; Founder and Honorary Chairman, Trilateral Commission [TC]; Chairman, The Bilderbergs.

    Loose lipped Joe Biden warned of looming crisis. Between the Public Health Emergency over the Pandemic A/H1N1 Swine Flu, North Korea taking aim at Hawaii, discourse throughout the world, the events of 9-11 and the Federal Reserve misplacing NINE TRILLION dollars, the crisis are indeed adding up.  America sits in the eye of the perfect storm for the change you don’t want to believe in.

    Crude Oil prices are up and the value of the U.S. dollar is down while our duly elected President Barack Hussein Obama is meddling yet again with free markets, furtherer eroding world confidence in the dollar and bringing our entire economic and political system another step toward socialism.  He is putting other nations in the position to ignore the U.S. dollar as the leader in world currency as, ” China and Russia have agreed to use each other’s currencies and eliminate the use of dollars in their trade,” according to  WWW.EVERBANK.COM blog, A Pfenning for Your Thoughts.

    President Obama yesterday said…” we will dismantle the Office of Thrift Supervision and close loopholes that have allowed important institutions to cherry-pick among banking rules. We will offer only one federal banking charter, regulated by a strengthened federal supervisor. We’ll raise capital requirements for all depository institutions….” http://scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0906/S00188.htm

    Noam Chomsky, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky is critical of the American capitalist system and big business, he describes himself as a libertarian socialist who sympathizes with anarcho-syndicalism -a potential force for revolutionary social change.  Like, The Change You Can believe in?

    Chomsky said, “I think it only makes sense to seek out and identify structures of authority, hierarchy, and domination in every aspect of life, and to challenge them; unless a justification for them can be given, they are illegitimate, and should be dismantled, to increase the scope of human freedom.” 

    The pattern for the Obama manipulation banking game is disheartening to say the least.  The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation- FDIC, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency- OCC, and OTS are all a part of the supervisory and regulatory framework of the banking industry.  Closing the Office of Thrift Supervision is more than likely going to result in the closing of more Savings and Loan Institutions through default, bankruptcy or government bailout.  There are existing laws an the books that had they been enforced, would not have allowed the “cherry picking” among banking rules and may have reduced this financial fiasco America and the world has gotten itself into. 
     
    Offering further proof of another American Fiasco comes from NEW YORK (Dow Jones) via http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090616-714654.html–The dollar declined Tuesday as major emerging market nations urged more diversity in the global currency system, another sign that big investors are growing restless with the greenback’s dominance. Brazil, Russia, India and China, collectively known as the BRIC nations, said after a meeting Tuesday that “it is very necessary to have a stable, predictable and more diversified currency system.”

    Two years ago Jerome Corsi reported that the director of international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations has launched a scathing attack on sovereignty and national currencies.  Benn Steil, writing in the current (now past)  issue of CFR’s influential Foreign Affairs magazine, says “the world needs to abandon unwanted currencies, replacing them with dollars, euros, and multinational currencies as yet unborn.” http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=55595  Looks like BRIC agrees.

    All conspiracy aside, has the time come when are we saying goodbye to the dollar; hello to the New World Order, a One-World-Government, and loss of American dominance?

    Paying taxes is Patriotic? 

    Congress is considering a National Sales Tax called a Value Added Tax-VAT in some circles. Forget about repealing all the income taxes already collected, they are planning to keeping the existing income tax and add a national sales tax on top of it.  How’s that for Patriotic?

    Poor people who don’t make enough to make ends meet now will be forced to rely further on social services, further enhancing the debt and reliance on government.  Socialism, pure and simple.  

    A commentator from the Say Anything Blog had this to say- http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/congress_considering_a_national_sales_tax/ that “Bush took 96 months to give us the largest debt in decades.  Obama took 4 months to QUADRUPLE that.”

    This is the change you can believe in.  …”Everybody who understands our long-term budget problems understands we’re going to need a new source of revenue, and a VAT is an obvious candidate,” said Leonard Burman, co-director of the Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, who testified on Capitol Hill this month about his own VAT plan. “It’s common to the rest of the world, and we don’t have it.” 

    I don’t have my armpits infested by the fleas of a thousand camels like some parts of the world either, but something stinks to high hell.  I understand that our economy and the world’s economy are fragile, but a VAT on top of what we already pay? Somewhere in this VAT is an angle for government subsidized healthcare, I just know it.  We are going to have to pay for the the Swine Flu Vaccine and Vaccine Stockpiles somehow, won’t we now?  Doing away with an antiquated tax code that our own Secretary of Treasury apparently couldn’t figure out is one thing, but not repealing it and expecting tax revenue on top of that is just greed and a nasty power play on the part of our elected democratic office holders.  Do they really want to be responsible for more burdens on the poor while they sit on the throne of power under the Obama reign?

    You think a gallon of milk is expensive now?  A gallon of gas locally was $2.49 in Podunk USA- in the EU it is between $5-$8 per liter.  http://goeurope.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=goeurope&cdn=travel&tm=59&gps=294_333_986_501&f=10&su=p531.50.336.ip_&tt=2&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/prices.html%23Motor

    I get that not everyone pays taxes and that not everyone qualifies but for those of us who do; for the government to even consider a VAT is just another nail in the coffin of capitalism.  I am tired of scraping up the change off the floor to pay for President Obama’s proposed socialistic programs and endless bailouts.  If I wanted to own a car company, I would have purchased the stock on Wall Street.  I didn’t need a President to do it for me.

    Patriotism is not getting your money for nothing and your tricks for free. Best link on the topic is here-

    Enough already.  What religion, in the name of God is Obama?

    First Obama was a Muslim, then a Christian attending the hate filled, anti- American services of Reverend Wright for 20 years.  Is he turning to Judaism next?  Where does Obama get his divine orders?

    On the schedule tonight, President Obama and his family will mark the beginning of Passover with a Seder at the White House with friends and staff.

    From the Jerusalem Times, “He also said the holiday presented a message for all humankind. “As part of a larger global community, we all must work to ensure that our brothers and sisters of every race, religion, culture and nationality are free from bondage and repression, and are able to live in peace.”   http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1238562942442&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

    Perhaps brother and sisters, his faith is only in The New World Order and the larger global economy.

    The Washington Times says that Obama has not attended a public church service since the Sunday before he was inaugurated. But the president has quietly kept up his faith, talking by phone with a handful of evangelical pastors, including Bishop T.D. Jakes and the Rev. Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, both of whom once served as spiritual advisers to former President George W. Bush, and the Rev. Otis Moss Jr., a pillar of the civil rights movement.

    At least we can rule out Catholicism for the Obamas.  President Obama will deliver the commencement address to graduates at Notre Dame. The preeminent Catholic university in America will bestow upon him an honorary degree when he stands against what most Catholics believe, obfuscating everything from traditional marriage to abortion.
