Obama Looks for 'Consensus' in a Turbulent World

By Ben Pershing
President Obama has already begun trying to save the U.S. financial system and housing industry, and is laying the groundwork to reshape the nation's health care. So how much harder could it be for him to bring the whole world together behind a plan to fix the global economy?

Speaking from London this morning, Obama predicted "enormous consensus" from the G-20 meeting about the need to work together in this time of crisis. Given events in the world, consensus of any kind seems like a tall order. France and Germany are teaming up to counter the U.S. and Britain with their own set of reform proposals. Russia and China want the dollar replaced as the world's reserve currency. Outside the summit, North Korea says it will shoot down U.S. planes monitoring its missile launch. And the administration has had it's first (brief) face-to-face meeting with Iran. Obama has talked often of his ability to multitask, so now he's got another chance to prove it.

Obama has already met with Gordon Brown this morning and done a joint media appearance with the British prime minister. Obama is meeting with Dmitry Medvedev at this writing. (If either of them follows the Political Browser Twitter feed, they will be able to pause and read this post. Good luck, comrades!) The two men are expected to announce an agreement on "principles for cooperation" between the two countries. Later on, the president and first lady will have a private audience with Queen Elizabeth II. The couple has reportedly been briefed on proper palace etiquette and so know not to wink at Her Majesty or do anything else embarrassingly American.

Open Letter to the American People
We are citizens of Germany and want to inform you that new possibilities of terror may arise from Germany. We don't want that once more there could be terror in the U. S. or other countries coming from persons or weapons from Germany!
The USA could be attacked with microwave weapons (directed energy weapons / radio frequency weapons) that are already used by perpetrators, and organized crime in Germany.
Microwave weapons and e-bombs are a real threat to people and critical infrastructures like computer networks, power grids, literally anything that works with electronics or computers. They can take down airplanes.
The German police and law enforcement don't do anything to stop the misuse and testing of these weapons by criminals.

I never imagined that Merkel and Sarkozy would be the biggest obstructionists and headaches for Obama at the G-20. And China and Russia are cooperating...

URGENT TO: Attorney General Eric Holder (staff, please forward)

WHILE THE GENERATED, MANUFACTURED ECONOMIC CRISIS CAPTURES THE HEADLINES...

DEMOCRACY AND PERSONAL LIBERTY ARE POISONED AT THE GRASSROOTS.

AND CHENEY'S 'STAY-BEHINDS' ARE REPORTING BACK TO THE BUNKER.

INNOCENT BUT TARGETED.


Google it.


YOU -- or someone close to you -- could be the next victim.


Unless Team Obama -- especially AG Holder, SecDef Gates, SecDHS Napolitano, SecTreas Geithner -- take down the draconian Bush-Cheney extrajudicial punishment network...


...an array of secret "programs of personal financial destruction" and a government-funded network of vigilante "community stalking"... using the GPS satellite system to hunt and harass human prey (with the full knowledge of law enforcement)...


...coupled with the proliferation of mind- and body-degrading "directed energy" microwave radiation weapons -- the Zyklon-B of a grassroots, government-enabled American Gestapo.


Attorney General Holder, you must act NOW to restore human and civil rights in America.


Before the naivete of liberals empowers the saboteurs and Dr. Strangeloves who say "No!" to change.

Where is the civil rights division investigation that victims have demanded?

Or is there "nothing to investigate" -- because the government already knows all about this?
