Bailout Bill Would Require Banks to Track and Report Personal Checking Accounts to Feds
by Capitol Confidential
It’s amazing to watch the civil libertarians hide when Democrats propose the most sweeping intrusions of privacy in generations. In addition to the litany of bad policies contained in the Dodd Financial Reform bill is this nugget on pages 1039-1040. In short, it extends government reach to every deposit account of every citizen.
Subtitle G of the Dodd discussion draft bill requires that records be maintained and reported “for each branch, automated teller machine at which deposits are accepted, and other deposit taking service facility with respect to any financial institution, the financial institution shall maintain a record of the number and dollar amounts of deposit accounts of customers.”
What’s worse, banks will be required to submit these records to the new super regulatory agency called the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (page 1041). The CFPA will be allowed to use this information for any purpose “as permitted by law” under CFPA rules—rules set by CFPA themselves.
So, lets get this straight—the law requires banks to snoop on its customers MOST PERSONAL INFORMATION and submit it to another government agency so it can be used anyway the CFPA see’s fit.continued....

...and gives us a tip in the event of his untimely demise: for the reason and the culprits, look to those figures to which he pointed, in his Thursday, 4/29 program [ed., or those he is not reporting on, but who are pulling the strings even behind them]
This time, if you have not caught it and wish to see this "Crime, Inc." program, you can view it at Patriots Network. Go on, we'll still be here.
And there, Beck's gems include...
- that Internet regulation lurks somewhere in the Obamafinance regulation bill... or is it the Cap and Trade bill? is there even a Cap and Trade bill to read, anywhere? I mean by the People?
- rubbing it in that no one in Congress is investigating Fannie Mae for investing in the Chicago Climate Exchange, outside their charter - and where did "free as a bird, guilty as Hell" Franklin Raines go?
- the Emerald Cities Collaborative (founded 12/2009) and their Board of Directors
- the Wizard thereof -- one Joel Rogers, founder of Emerald Cities, and... Rogers also founded of The New Party (I think Trevor Loudon likely knew this already, I have to get back in better touch with Trevor, now that I'm posting again)... and the Apollo Alliance (which wrote a lot of the antiStimulus Act) -- Andy Stern and Van Jones love Rogers for the mastermind he is, pulling alchemist's levers and ropes of the Marxofascist Money Machinery behind the curtain at the University of Wisconsin
And by the way, both Beck and Sarah Palin were listed in Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in America" and... Sarah Palin did the clever Glenn Beck write-up, there. (Palin on Beck, also Ted Nugent on Palin.) Is that not a fascinating combination of overlapped signaling?:
- Sarah Palin signals to us awake and aware Americans that she knows what is going on (at least as much as do we, anyway).
- Time Magazine signals to fellow "progressive" evils, "Hey! See! Sarah Palin knows what's going on!"

Updated, 4/28/2010 - Initial post, 4/27, 2:00pm CT
Both of these videos are from Monday evening, April 26th. The Financial Times article is from this Sunday. They are elements of the most extensive scandal perhaps, since original sin.
While the Beck video is even much more significant than this, the point is that Barack Obama personally nixed real reform in the Obamafinance bill. The transparency would have gotten in the way of the astounding plan of which he is a focal point. This entire interview is important, but be sure to listen after the two minute mark, as Greta Van Susteren interviews Senator Jim DeMint.
Next, put that together with this story, out of Financial Times. This is where Barack Obama and his network are driving us. It is global corporatism, i.e., Marxofascism:
U.S. Prepares to Push for Global Capital Rules
Financial Times ^ | Sunday April 25, 2010 | Tom Braithwaite
The US is preparing to pivot from domestic regulatory reform to a push for a tough new international capital regime after the weekend’s G20 and International Monetary Fund meetings glossed over differences between leading economies.
Tim Geithner, US Treasury secretary, met Mario Draghi, chairman of the Financial Stability Board, on Sunday to discuss the contours of a system that would decide the safety and profitability of banks for decades to come and could eclipse the arguments over bank taxes and regulation.
One participant at a US Federal Reserve meeting this month to discuss the new regime said “full and frank” did not do justice to the furious response from some industry delegates.
Once again, of course, Barack Obama is front and center, along with the Chicago Climate Exchange, the Joyce Foundation, George Soros, Maurice Strong, Edmund de Rothschild, the Federal Reserve, Goldman Sachs, George W. Bush's Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, even Fannie Mae, and many others. It entails global Marxofascism / global kleptocracy, with Americans being the chief victims, while a few overlords rule at, and their financiers skim off, the top. If any "mainstream" reporters cared to cover this thoroughly (and could) they could be much bigger characters in U.S. and world history than Woodward and Bernstein. And as for Americans willingly instigating this, it is treason.
Here is a great part of their entire, one-world plan. Element by element, this beast is designed to virtually enslave, yes, the entire world. That includes the "nation" of America. That includes you.
The remainder of Glenn Beck's expose', components of what is behind the Chicago Climate Exchange and so much more, the subterfuge of global Marxofascism as environmentalism and the bigger picture:
Spread it to everyone.
It is extensive evidence of the story.
For more within Investigating Obama about this, I suggest that little search bar up in the upper left corner. There, you may wish to search the words, "Simpson," or "Monckton," or "Obamanomics," or... "Soros" ...or a whole lot of "Marxofascist." And, check out the I.O. Sidebar's "Essential Articles" -- and always, the various categories of I.O. blogrolls.
Now on Fox News: The bad news reached the White House just before the vote on Capitol Hill "and they went into lockdown," that according to an unnamed staff member of the Department of Health and Human Services. This should be very big news that makes it though the Marxstream media defenses.
At the same time, I.O. will be underscoring some much bigger news that eeked out, once again though the Fox News channel, last night. (Including but far from only, Barack Obama; "Think global....")
Meanwhile, here is the report, from American Spectator's Washington Prowler, which Brett Baier and Megyn Kelly cite:
What Lies BeneathBut do not be too taken by this story. Be sure to see two videos that I.O. will be presenting, next. It will present a much bigger picture, very much about Barack Obama, but very very much about so much more.
By The Prowler on 4.26.10 @ 6:09AM
The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama's health care "reform" law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius's staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.
"The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote," says an HHS source. "Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think."
The analysis, performed by Medicare's Office of the Actuary, which in the past has been identified as a "nonpolitical" office, set off alarm bells when submitted. "We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff," says the HHS staffer, "and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretary's office. Everyone went into lockdown, and people here were too scared to go public with the report."
In the end, the report was released several weeks after the vote -- the review by the secretary's office reportedly took less than three days -- and bore a note that the analysis was not the official position of the Obama administration.
By the way, you may wish to refer to an earlier piece reported in I.O.:
'Word of the Lord,' April 2010Amen.I.O. intends to link, with comments, to numerous items recently appearing on the 'net, which further expose Barry Soetoro (a.k.a., Barack Obama) and the "transnational progressive" (i.e., Marxofascist globalist) network of which he is knit. Before I do, one additional, current, Christian prophecy is here submitted for examination by those who will, from someone whose prior missive is linked in I.O's immediate prior posting.Word of the Lord April 2010, by Prophet Phyllis Ford
March 27, 2010
The government will continue to be shaken, and the more she is shaken the more uncovering will come to light. There is some key information that will be found out that was a part of back room deals that have occurred, and as a result the secrets of government leadership will be uncovered. There are those who are standing in the gap, and my work will continue to move forward. There will be change and divine turnaround before the dust clearly settles
Update 4/27/2010 1:09pm CT - According to Bret Baier, the DHS is denying this Prowler report, but actually they are admitting they did have the data needed to calculate the budget overruns, well before the House vote. They are merely saying they had not calculated it all until April 22nd. One would hope Mr. Baier and his colleagues are not accepting that fig leavery out of hand. Now, wouldn't that be a nice way to cover up? "Oops! These numbers aren't in line with what we've told America! I've got an idea! Let's stop calculating them until it's over!"
Does someone need to tell Bret Baier that computers and spreadsheets make calculations very fast, in this day and age? Get real and get a little investigative, Fox News. Or are you going to let others do all your work and accept everything you hear from the White House? Even if this excuse is true (and come on, now) how irresponsible would it be, for the DHS to have this data and not to calculate it before the House vote? Good grief, Mr. Baier.
How long does it take to calculate? They certainly seem to be able to draft thousands of pages of legislation in a hurry.
Update 4/28/2010 1:09pm CT - Below is Bret Baier's prior evening news report (not on April 27th).
Other commentators have piped-up about this very reported cover-up.
In Gateway Pundit and in BigGovernment.com...And now we have what would seem to be a logical way of providing cover for a cover-up. Did every jot and tittle have to be completely finished, for the DHHS to know of the huge overruns in projections, even if they actually didn't have time to prepare their analysis?
Breaking: Dems Hid Damning Health Care Report From Public Until a Month After Vote!
by Jim Hoft, on Monday, April 26, 2010, 10:13 PM
And in WorldNetDaily.com...
Did Obama hide damning health-care report?
'Everyone here went into lockdown, people were too scared to go public'
by Drew Zahn, April 27, 2010, 5:58 pm ET
Richard Foster, chief actuary of the office that produced the report, told WND the Spectator article "is completely inaccurate."
"We began working on the reconciliation bill for the health reform legislation once it was publicly issued on March 18 – three days before the House vote took place on March 21," Foster said in a statement. "Because of the details and complexity of the legislation, it wasn't possible to estimate the package before the Senate vote. We began work on the estimates right away, but we didn't finalize them until the afternoon of April 22.
"We finished our memorandum on the health reform act later that same day and immediately sent it to those individuals and organizations that had requested it, including congressional staff, HHS staff and media representatives," he concluded. "Consistent with the Office of the Actuary's longstanding independent role on behalf of Congress, we did not seek approval or clearance from HHS (or anyone else) before issuing our analysis."
Foster also sent a letter only days before the critical health-care vote in the House to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell explaining there was no way the actuaries could complete their analysis before the critical March 21, 2010, deadline.
"My staff and I will not be able to prepare our analysis within this very tight time frame, due to the complexity of the legislation," Foster wrote.

Leo Haffey Jailed in TN for Seeking Constitutional Justice regarding Obama? And the 4/20 Darren Huff Detainment
Why was Leo Haffey jailed, in Tennessee?
Why was Darren Huff just pulled-over and detained by the Tennessee state and county police, in a separate incident? (link to video)
Guests: Darren Huff and Leo Haffey Listen tonight, Monday, 4/26 at 9-11pm ET (6-8pm PT)
You may use the widget at Investigating Obama, just below on this page...
...or by visiting the Sentinel Radio page and chat room...
...or call to listen, at 646-727-2652.
Why was Leo Haffey recently jailed for sixty days? Was he incarcerated without charges? Falsely labeled a mental patient? Who did this? How was he freed? Through legal processes, Haffey has been seeking constitutional justice regarding the man who would be called President Obama. [Ed., Leo Haffey's site on the Citizens' Grand Jury: http://grandjury.blogtownhall.com/]
And if this story were not odd enough, just this past Tuesday, April 20, while Mr. Haffey happened to be a guest caller on the G. Gordon Liddy Program (special guests were eligibility objector, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin and his attorney - report and audio archive, here) a number of people were driving to a meeting with Walter Fitzpatrick. One of them was Darren Huff, who will introduce himself to you, tonight.
Why was Darren Huff on the highway shoulder with the police for ninety minutes, on his way to this meeting?
Why did they want to search his car? Was it because of his "Oath Keepers" sign? Is this a part of an Obama/Napolitano DHS surveillance plan for the constitutional justice movement? Why did they decide not to search the car - while detaining him for an hour and a half on the highway? [I.O. Ed., Darren says thirty minutes and that they were engaged in healthy and instructive conversation for an hour after that.] Mr. Huff will fill in the important blanks, from his perspective. See the video report of this April 20th incident.
We hope to have time for call-in questions, at 646-727-2652 (option 1, to ask a question). Afterward, the netcast will be archived, for future reference.

Sarah Palin says it is "crony capitalism." Has a friend sent her latest Facebook essay to you in an email?
The hacks at Goldman Sachs say the password is "partner," as Governor Palin points out, below.
Ron Paul says "corporatism."
Yes, yes, and yes. And such fascistic, ministerial control is the initial structural focus of the neo-Marxist. It is Barack Obama's necessary step onto the treasonous road to a pseudo-democratic “dictatorship of the proletariat” and the unnatural and impossible communist dream of egalitarian collectivism. In this scheme, "too big to fail" is the excuse where that excuse may work, while the point is that the few, large institutions should be amoeba-like consuming enough to afford control over the entire market and eventually, the entire economy.
Real reform and truly appropriate regulation can be very difficult to instill, amidst entrenched, corrupt politics and an ideological enmity to the truly virtuous republicanism authentic to America. I personally know of no one with better experience as a pathfinder in just that reform, than Sarah Palin.In the wake of the recent financial meltdown, Americans know that we need reform. Not only have many individuals learned lessons about personal responsibility through this, but we’ve been able to engage in a discussion about government’s appropriate role.4/22/2010 at 9:28pm
The current debate over financial reform demonstrates what happens when political leaders react to a crisis with a raft of new regulations. First off, the people involved in writing government regulations are often lobbyists from the very industry that the new laws are supposed to regulate, and that’s been the case here. It should surprise no one that financial lobbyists are flocking to DC this week. Of course, the big players who can afford lobbyists work the regulations in their favor, while their smaller competitors are left out in the cold. The result here are regulations that institutionalize the “too big to fail” mentality.
Moreover, the financial reform bill gives regulators the power to pick winners and losers, institutionalizing their ability to decide “which firms to rescue or close, and which creditors to reward and how.” Does anyone doubt that firms with the most lobbyists and the biggest campaign donations will be the ones who get seats in the lifeboat? The president is trying to convince us that he’s taking on the Wall Street “fat cats,” but firms like Goldman Sachs are happy with federal regulation because, as one of their lobbyists recently stated, “We partner with regulators.”
They seem to have a nice relationship with the White House too. Goldman showered nearly a million dollars in campaign contributions on candidate Obama. In fact, J.P. Freire notes that President Obama received about seven times more money from Goldman than President Bush received from Enron. Of course, it’s not just the donations; it’s the revolving door. You’ll find the name Goldman Sachs on many an Obama administration résumé, including Rahm Emanuel’s and Tim Geithner’s chief of staff’s.
We need to be on our guard against such crony capitalism. We fought against distortion of the market in Alaska when we confronted “Big Oil,” or more specifically some of the players in the industry and in political office, who were taking the 49th state for a ride. My administration challenged lax rules that seemed to allow corruption, and we even challenged the largest corporation in the world at the time for not abiding by provisions in contracts it held with the state. When it came time to craft a plan for a natural gas pipeline, we insisted on transparency and a level playing field to insure fair competition. Our reforms helped reduce politicians’ ability to play favorites and helped clean up corruption. We set up stricter oversight offices and ushered through a bi-partisan ethics reform bill. Far from being against necessary reform, I embrace it.
Commonsense conservatives acknowledge the need for financial reform and believe that government can play an appropriate role in leveling the playing field and protecting “the dynamism of American capitalism without neglecting the government’s responsibility to protect the American public.” We’re listening closely to the reform discussion in Washington, and we know that government should not burden the market with unnecessary bureaucracy and distorted incentives, nor make a dangerous “too-big-to-fail” mentality the law of the land.
- Sarah Palin
Concurrently, George Soros weighs in. Yes, Marxists go right for the banks. To prove the point to which I above allude, that truly evil, transnationalist master of manipulation (and of timing) has just written on the subject, too.
Big news! He is for Obamafinance plus more and he spills the beans about what that means. He espouses the complete ministerial control of derivatives and has done quite a job of posing this anti-American tyranny as, of course, the only sensible and heroic solution, with the interest of the people in mind. He calls his essay, "America Must Face Up to the Dangers of Derivatives," as if Soros, the economy destroyer, cared about dangers to economies, in his Pinky and the Brain megalomind.Soros' writings on the "open society" are hyper-abstract rationalizations for global Marxist tyranny. Have you noticed that Barack Obama does not like to use the word "freedom" in his speeches and has actually used the phrase, "open society," in lieu of that word? Substitute the words "globally controlled" for "open;" I leave it up to Soros, to explain the tortured pseudo-synonym.
Rep. Michelle Bachmann has called this initiative worse than Obamacare. Are we learning why?

At this moment and in the interest of time, I will avoid further reporting, but to point to Carl Swensson's phone call into the G. Gordon Liddy program (see "Update-2," of this I.O. post) which is how this story broke on Tuesday 4/20. Also, to that day's Globe & Email report, "Citizen Apprehended en route to Fitzpatrick Hearing in Tennessee."
Evidently, the Obama regime's Department of Homeland Security, under Janet Napolitano, is having some sway, by her communiques to America's various law enforcement offices labeling supporters of the United States Constitution as "potential terrorists" -- especially if they include our greatly esteemed military personnel and veterans.
I am told this video from Carl Swensson and presumably the meeting these patriots were on their way to attend were not events authorized by Oath Keepers.
There is more to come from I.O. on this Tennessee focus of the Global Marxofascist Insurrection against Sovereign Americans, Barack Obama, "Commander in Chief" of the former. We have some catching up to do, regarding the stories of Walter Fitzpatrick and Leo Haffey. - AW
UPDATE - Details are not complete, but Sentinel Radio's "The Awakening" will broadcast again, probably beginning this coming Monday, 4/26/2010, 9-11pm ET. We are firming up guests to include Leo Haffey and one or two of those people involved in, or connected with this incident. I.O. and the Sentinel Radio Blog will apprise and link.

Goldman and Geithner,
Goldman, the Paulsons, and the Fed;
Goldman for money,
Goldman for Marxists,
Goldman, for control o'er your head.
Rush Limbaugh asserts today, "Oh ho no! Goldman's in on this; they'll pay a litttle bitty fine here, but I mean they're gonna be sitting pretty once this bill passes." He reads an email from a friend of his, whether inside or outside the beltway:
You know Rush, we have spent a zillion years working in or closely observing the federal government. Now, Bill Clinton's war room was an amazing monstrosity, but I have never seen anything like this kind of strategic intermingling of a bare knuckles political operation with the levers of power. And the cynicism about how stupid the American Public must be is breathtaking."...which is what they call 'direct action,'" concludes Limbaugh, "pretty much what the Gambino family calls 'making an offer you can't refuse.' That's what Obama is a professional at and that's what's frightening to watch."
Even as Gibbs and Emanuel are denying the SEC case and the push for new regulations have nothing to do with each other, Obama's Alinskyites are buying Web links knowing that people will be surfing to get information about the case, assuring that they'll get Obama's spin first.
I mean who even thinks of doing this stuff? Yet they're not just thinking about it, they're doing it! I don't think he's competent at anything else, except giving speeches from a teleprompter, but I do think this guy knows the tactical community organizer stuff through and through and Alinskyite community organizing is a mix of the lawful, the barely lawful, and the clearly unlawful and the extortionate...
This step in the revolution is "where we're at." Next, we will look back, to John C. Drew's account of college age Barry Obama's vehement insistence upon the success of a sophisticated Marxist strategy for overcoming America, already firm in his mind in his undergraduate days at Occidental College.
Many, from Rolling Stone Magazine, to even conventionally conservative publications have dipped their lenses under the surface of Goldman Sachs' recent role in the cause of engineering global Marxofascism. We are likely to present some of those dots, connected for you in the near future, too. - AW

Update 2 - Also in the second segment, Carl Swensson called in and gave his account of the following, reported in The Post & Email, "Citizen Apprehended en route to Fitzpatrick Hearing in Tennessee." This apparent police apprehension of an Oath Keeper is a new element in another story that bears monitoring. Also worth critical review has been the disturbing case of Leo Haffey, who called during the first segment reporting his own story of being kept for sixty days in jail, for communicating about the real Barack Obama. More about Leo Haffey may be read from numerous sources, including the Citizen Wells and The Steady Drip blogs (search "Haffey" there).

While the I.O. Sidebar has been reporting the eligibility news, non-stop, I have not done any writing about it, recently. "Saving up," maybe. Not to slight any of the other important news, as the case against Barry Soetoro (and the endemic breakdown of Constitutional order and justice, throughout the United States of America) builds, below is a link to the G. Gordon Liddy program today, streaming.
It is ground breaking. You can hear it in the voices.
GGL - 4-20-10 H1More may be read about this interview at WorldNetDaily's piece, "Born in the USA? Important question about Constitution." And remember, this is about whether Obama is a "natural born Citizen," not merely whether he was born in America. Remember that book which the Father of our Country did not return to the library and all the other evidence of the two-parent Citizenship requirement. And remember there appears to be evidence that any American Citizenship for Barry Soetoro may have been forsworn, in Indonesia.

In other words, barackobama.com admits their aim is Marxist. Feel free to read the entire email, to find the key phrase. Or, below that, I show the phrase, with closing comments.
Subject: A presidential vetoDid you notice the confession? It comes before the deceptive, slipstream propaganda of Barack Obama's "PS." It is not just that he labels opposition, in true Marxofascist agitprop, as coming from "big banks and Wall Street lenders," in Obama's terms, out to protect "egregious abusers of consumers."
Saturday, April 17, 2010 11:42 PM
From: "Mitch Stewart, BarackObama.com"
To: "Arlen Williams"
President Obama means business.
He's committed his administration to reining in Wall Street and creating the strongest consumer protections in history. And on Friday he made it clear that we can't allow another devastating financial crisis -- so he'll veto any reform bill that doesn't bring the derivatives market under control.
But the Senate could begin debate as soon as this week, and Republican leaders are teaming up with Wall Street lobbyists to defeat the bill -- so the President needs your help to show that the American people stand with him on Wall Street reform:
P.S. -- Don't miss the President's message from Friday below.
From: Barack Obama
Subject: Wall Street reform
It has now been well over a year since the near collapse of our entire financial system that cost the nation more than 8 million jobs. To this day, hard-working families struggle to make ends meet.
We've made strides -- businesses are starting to hire, Americans are finding jobs, and neighbors who had given up looking are returning to the job market with new hope. But the flaws in our financial system that led to this crisis remain unresolved.
Wall Street titans still recklessly speculate with borrowed money. Big banks and credit card companies stack the deck to earn millions while far too many middle-class families, who have done everything right, can barely pay their bills or save for a better future.
We cannot delay action any longer. It is time to hold the big banks accountable to the people they serve, establish the strongest consumer protections in our nation's history -- and ensure that taxpayers will never again be forced to bail out big banks because they are "too big to fail."
That is what Wall Street reform will achieve, why I am so committed to making it happen, and why I'm asking for your help today.
Please stand with me to show your support for Wall Street reform.
We know that without enforceable, commonsense rules to check abuse and protect families, markets are not truly free. Wall Street reform will foster a strong and vibrant financial sector so that businesses can get loans; families can afford mortgages; entrepreneurs can find the capital to start a new company, sell a new product, or offer a new service.
Consumer financial protections are currently spread across seven different government agencies. Wall Street reform will create one single Consumer Financial Protection Agency -- tasked with preventing predatory practices and making sure you get the clear information, not fine print, needed to avoid ballooning mortgage payments or credit card rate hikes.
Reform will provide crucial new oversight, give shareholders a say on salaries and bonuses, and create new tools to break up failing financial firms so that taxpayers aren't forced into another unfair bailout. And reform will keep our economy secure by ensuring that no single firm can bring down the whole financial system.
With so much at stake, it is not surprising that allies of the big banks and Wall Street lenders have already launched a multi-million-dollar ad campaign to fight these changes. Arm-twisting lobbyists are already storming Capitol Hill, seeking to undermine the strong bipartisan foundation of reform with loopholes and exemptions for the most egregious abusers of consumers.
I won't accept anything short of the full protection that our citizens deserve and our economy needs. It's a fight worth having, and it is a fight we can win -- if we stand up and speak out together.
So I'm asking you to join me, starting today, by adding your name as a strong supporter of Wall Street reform:
President Barack Obama
No. It lays wide open for all to read, in the third sentence of this email. I will emphasize the words: "And on Friday he made it clear that we can't allow another devastating financial crisis -- so he'll veto any reform bill that doesn't bring the derivatives market under control."
To control a market under government is the essential nature of Communism. It could be regarded as even more extreme than Fascism. And now, you have seen it from the perpetrators, themselves.
What is a clearer admission of Barack Obama's Marxism than this?
The governmental control involved in this legislation is currently being explained by others. In this humble article, the admission by Obama's personnel is left to speak for itself. Someone who believes in American political philosophy does not speak of "bringing" a market "under control." The most severe word is "regulation," which is far different. Authentic American regulation seeks to allow the market to function freely by preventing it from being controlled, or grossly manipulated or dominated.
Feel very free to show this to your neighbors, the media, and your members of Congress. -- AW

It is hard to believe that the State Department could do this by accident:There is more to the story and it is important. Read the rest from the source. Alec Rawls' "About Me" bio is also an eye opening read. - AW
An Islamic crescent is a very distinct and completely unnatural geometric shape, created the intersection of two circles. This is done on basic religious principle, to make the Islamic crescent distinct from a lunar crescent and from the lit portion of any other globe in orbit around a sun. To take a natural shape like the crescent moon as a religious symbol would risk idolatry (the worship of any actual thing besides God). Thus Muslims use as their symbol a stylized and explicitly unnatural crescent shape.
So why is this unnatural crescent shape being used as an official State Department logo for Obama's Nuclear Security Summit? There is not a Muslim in the world who would miss the symbolism here:
World meeting, called by a United States president who makes a point of reminding the Islamic
world that his middle name is Hussein, presided over by a large Islamic-shaped crescent.
(Photo by Ron Sachs.)
Logos always use stylized shapes, but surely the State Department is aware that this particular stylized crescent shape is the closest thing Islam has to a universal insignia. (Wahabbists reject even the unnatural circle-in-circle crescent shape as idolatrous, making the only truly universal symbols of Islam the Koran, the declaration of faith--recited in the 5 times daily prayers--and the facing of Mecca for prayer, but none of these are graphic symbols.)

He further mulls over and then rolls over the question: What is Barack Obama doing, dealing with health care and now with large-scale nuclear issues with other nations, while avoiding the more acute present crises (of the economy in America and of the nuclear armament of Iran and North Korea)?
The answers to these questions are only understood by correctly assessing who Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are. They are transnational progressives, that is, globalist Marxofascists. Let me take a crack at each question.
Question 1: Is Nancy Pelosi a nice person?
Answer 2: Was it the mass murders of Mao, Stalin, and Hitler only that made them "not nice?" If they had not committed these mass atrocities and yet found ways to install their empires of tyranny, would they somehow have been "nice?"
Question 2: Why does Obama focus on health care and global nuclear proliferation (and the red herring of "man-made global warming")?
Answer 2: Because dealing with these offer the opportunity to advance toward the global Marxofascist goals of centralized control over the People of the world and their God granted nations.
To understand one's objectives, it is necessary to understand his larger goals. It is not difficult to understand political people, if you understand their worldviews. In this case, understanding the collectivist worldview of the "transnational progressive," who would doom the world's People into slavery under the control of a small and highly privileged elite class, is essential.
See for yourself
Obama's DealFor being on PBS, Frontline can be remarkably objective (in at least a conventionalist, inside the beltway fashion). I.O. will watch this and suggest you keep an eye on it too.
"A sobering look at the push to reform health care, revealing the realities of American politics, the power of special interest groups and the role of money in policy making."
"Watch the Full Program Online"
Remember their program on John P. O'Neil, of the FBI: "The Man who Knew," pre-9/11/2001 and what happened to him? The docudrama "Path to 911" has been largely squelched and scrubbed, but that was not.
1. The following, submitted in FreeRepublic.com, explores a question. What would America be experiencing, if it had an Islamist and Marxist president?
Obama is a Muslim Marxist2. And these video excerpts of Barack Obama are pieced together in YouTube, by "FeelTheChangeMedia." Its point of view is one informed directly by the man himself, in his own words and behavior.

Some say that the accusation that Obama is a Muslim is ludicrous and bigoted. But what if it's true? It would mean that Obama has been lying all along. But why would a Muslim be afraid to disclose his faith?
If one is to be a good Muslim, then many, many attitudes and behaviors that are uniquely American would have to be considered evil. He's slipped, admitting his Muslim faith and then recanted. He's stated that the call to prayer is the "prettiest sound on Earth". Obama has bowed (or was it an aborted kneel?) to the King of the Saudis. Obama is hiding his Muslim faith behind the thorny protection of political correctness.
Not convinced yet? Let's use our imaginations for a minute.Let's just suppose for the sake of argument that a random Muslim is sitting in the Oval Office. What, logically would that "good" Muslim do to fulfill the tenants of his faith?
The first target would be the American economy. That was the primary target on 9/11. Militant Islamists like Bin Laden figured that in order to defeat America, it's economic engine had to be stopped. And they are right. America's productivity is the source of America's might. It is buttressed by the American work ethic, faith and family. Of course all these are under attack more each day by Marxist legislators.
Second, America's military might must be curtailed. Funding must be cut. Successful weapons systems axed. Defense systems in particular must be undermined. Islamists want us defenseless as do all Marxists. If America is at a military disadvantage, then it is at a political and economic disadvantage as well.
Third, America's alliances must be broken up. The Europeans are our strongest allies because of the cultural similarities and America's origins. Those bonds must be broken and that puts Europe at a disadvantage as well making it easier for Islamists to colonize Europe.
Fourth, the Israelis must be abandoned both militarily and financially and totally isolated. The end goal would be to conquer Israel. There should be no more settlements. Jerusalem must be taken back to shame the Jews and re-establish Muslim dominance in the Middle East.
It seems to me that Obama is acting just like my hypothetical Muslim President. Like a typical Marxist, he's taking over industries, crippling productivity and wealth creation. He's crippling the military by cutting funding and destroying morale. He's snubbing important allies and the Israelis. He's cutting off weapons sales to the Israelis particularly bunker busters that can be used against Israels greatest threat, Iran. Israel is now at a severe disadvantage visa-vis its adversaries in the region.
Obama is a Muslim and Marxism is his weapon to destroy Islam's enemies, in particular America. He has no past and yet he guides America's future. The Orwellian lash of political correctness and white guilt elected Obama.The Democrats wasted the mantle of the first black president on someone who won't unite, won't uplift, and won't strengthen America. It is both sad and frightening.

Obama: We're Still Working on our DemocracyThe reader is encouraged to read and mull over the entire article in FP.
by Josh Rogin, ForeignPolicy.com, Sunday, 4/11/2010
President Obama said Sunday that the United States is still "working on" democracy and a top aide said he has taken "historic steps" to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.
"In connection with the OSCE, the presidents had a very lengthy discussion of issues of democracy and human rights," NSC senior director Mike McFaul said on a conference call with reporters Sunday. "Both presidents agreed that you don't ever reach democracy; you always have to work at it. And in particular, President Obama reminded his Kazakh counterpart that we, too, are working to improve our democracy."
....McFaul said. "[Obama's] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States."
Meanwhile, Obama will keep working to, in true Marxist, Hegelian fashion, "fundamentally transform" America, from what it is authorized to be, to what the global Marxofascist mind fallaciously imagines. Both the means and ends are always deceit, theft, and on numerous levels, violence. But, in order for Marxists and fascists to gain and maintain power, they always bill themselves as "democrats," administering "social justice" to their (enslaved) people.

In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration. The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care of.Huckabee went on to say while he agreed that Obama is destructive, he did not believe he was intentionally so. His email address with Fox News is email@example.com. Perhaps you would like to send him some informative links.
President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is.
It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new language for the Islamic extremists. The world who looked up to us as a symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire world if America is losing its power.
The American people who understand exactly what is taking place have come together in the thousands, vowing to try to stay together as a unit of love and freedom for all men and women, from all walks of life, shivering to think that this once great nation will be a third world country.
This will be the first president to ever weaken the United States of America. President Obama uses his aggression and arrogance for his own agenda, against the will of the American people when he should be using his will and aggression against our enemies.
Every loving American for peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the liars and agitators.
Let us all stay in Gods light. Let no man put asunder. We can and we will prevail. God bless us all.

In fact, evidence indicates that the reign of Obama/Pelosi/Reid and the opera of the Marxstream media operate largely in keeping with the Bilderberg agenda for global tyranny. Excerpt and link -- America, know your enemy.
Bilderberg Found!There is something in this story that stands out to me like a throbbing thumb, but I want to do more research and perhaps make some phone calls, before I discuss it here.
by James P. Tucker, Jr.
The Bilderberg group will conduct its annual meeting June 3-6 in Sitges, Spain (a small, exclusive resort town about 20 miles from Barcelona) behind a wall of armed guards who will seal off the resort in a futile attempt to keep the event secret.
Bilderberg’s meeting will follow that of its brother group, the Trilateral Commission, which will gather at the Four Seasons Resort in Dublin, Ireland May 6-10. Leaders of Bilderberg also attend the Trilateralists’ meeting to map their common agenda. About 300 attend Trilateral Commission meetings, which are conducted behind sealed-off, guarded floors of their hotel. About 100 will attend Bilderberg, which seals off the entire resort behind platoons of uniformed police and private security.
Bilderberg hopes to keep the global recession going for at least a year, according to an international financial consultant who deals personally with many of them. This is because, among several reasons, Bilderberg still hopes to create a global “treasury department” under the United Nations. Bilderberg first undertook this mission at its meeting last spring in Greece, but the effort was blocked by nationalists in Europe and the United States. “Nationalists” (a dirty word in Bilderberg) objected to surrendering sovereignty to the UN.
AFP’s source pointed to the words of French President Nicolas Sarkozy in a March 29 speech at notoriously left-wing Columbia University, where he said, “We should invent a new global monetary order.”
He was clearly referring to the recently proposed world “treasury department.”
Bilderberg’s ultimate goal remains unchanged: Turn the UN into a world government with “nation-states” becoming merely geographic references. The European Union is to become a single political entity, followed by the “American Union” and, finally, the “Asian-Pacific Union.” The “American Union” is to include the entire Western Hemisphere, including Cuba and other offshore islands.

Word of the Lord April 2010, by Prophet Phyllis FordMore may be perused at Carpenter's Touch Ministries, Arlington, Texas.
March 27, 2010
It is important that you must hear clearly what I am saying…and what I am doing right now. Because there are snares and traps that the enemy is laying before you, and you must be able to see and maneuver around them. So be very aware of what is going on around you. But don’t let what the enemy is doing be your focus---don’t allow the fear that is trying to grip the minds of people to surround you. But walk in the power of my grace; allow me to speak to your heart the peace of my word.
The government will continue to be shaken, and the more she is shaken the more uncovering will come to light. There is some key information that will be found out that was a part of back room deals that have occurred, and as a result the secrets of government leadership will be uncovered. There are those who are standing in the gap, and my work will continue to move forward. There will be change and divine turnaround before the dust clearly settles.
The European nations will gather and discuss the crisis and uncertainty of their financial directives. They are looking to go in a new direction and although it will be discussed, the remedy that they are seeking won’t avert the trouble that is coming. Instability exists in too many areas where there was once financial strength. This nation is close to seeing serious problems that will affect the US dollar, as it is losing its strength.
But, even in the midst of confusion and turmoil, I have a plan; and in the midst of trouble, I have a praise and a song. In the midst of questions, yes, I have answers. And know that I shall by my own hand deliver you out, says the Lord. For I am opening doors and I am making ways in the heavenlies concerning your financial strength: strength and stability that doesn’t come from the dictates of the land. But, I am opening a greater realm for opportunities to be received, achieved, and acquired. This help is from on High. For, I am shifting the wealth of this nation into the hands of those who hearts are prepared and ready to distribute to others as it is released to them. Some dreams that were shelved will live again. A new hope will spring up, and those with great wisdom and strategies will know what to do in this shift. Keep your hearts before me and stay in my presence, and I will release great secrets from the treasures of darkness. Even riches that are hidden will come forth, and the hands of those who have been holding on by faith shall receive great strength. For, even as the children of Israel came out from Egypt—you shall come out with a high hand and a testimony to the miracles I have done in this season, says the Lord.
2 Chronicles 16:9a KJV
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
Warning: Many ill winds will rise up all this month to try to destroy and even bring fear into the hearts of my people. But I call upon my intercessors, for their prayers shall quell the force behind these winds both spiritually and naturally.
A Vision of Seeds:
I saw seeds being planted. (The Lord said they were seeds of doubt and discouragement –so that people would despair.) And the Lord said, “Some have reached the final breaking point where what is going on in the land has caused them to react----if they are not careful these seeds will give way to a great unrest in the land during this season. This must be a time when faith in me and cooler heads must prevail. The work of my kingdom will be established. Anger and petty prejudices are emotions that are not the answer. Truly, these feelings can lead down a dangerous pathway to violence. So, don’t allow discouragement to set in, for I am coming in the midst of your situation—I am coming to bring resolve, resolution, and yes, even closure to situations that have lingered on too long with no answers. Yes, I am bringing change, so that you may grow, move on, and accomplish much.”
Proverbs 14:12 KJV
There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
So, look to my light, my way, and great change shall come forth by my hand, says the Lord. My life, my love, and my truth shall prevail.
So, it’s time to put on your priestly garments, and put on your king’s garment, and it’s time to put on your warrior’s garment, that the purposes of my kingdom be fulfilled. For, the doors of my kingdom shall open and my people shall conquer and cover much ground in a short span of time.
Prophetic Insights: The Lord revealed to me that these garments (all three of them) must be worn by us all. So, we must walk as priest, king, and warrior in the earth. All three garments bear a heavy responsibility now.
Intercessors, watchman, pray for the region of Japan---the Lord said that His eyes were upon it.
