In 1644 Rev. Samuel Rutherford published LEX, REX, The Law & the Prince to demonstrate that the natural law is above the King, Some 364 years later The Invisible Hand Blog is born after a historic election a Reagan Conservative born in the 60's molded in the Reagan years begins this blog to demonstrate the God given Unalienable rights given to every person by God. God bless the truth and let the truth be raised.
The Russian President Dmitry Medvedev looked into Obama's eyes and says,"MY COMRADE." "My comrade Obama can listen." Those two words, "My Comrade" are all you have to hear to know that Obama's Policy in Foreign Affairs is a 180 degree turn from our Super Power past. This is the shape of a New World Order, a new COLLECTIVISM. Robert Hormats, vice chairmen of Goldman Sachs International, who helped prepare summits for presidents Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, claimed, "it's the passing of an era, the U.S. is becoming less dominant while other nations are gaining influence." A new world collectivism where the voice of the collective is the leadership in the world.
At the conclusion of the G20 summit Obama explained, "in a world that is as complex as it is, it is very important for us to be able to forge partnerships as opposed to simply dictating solutions." The president brokered the New World Collectivism even signing on to a communique that Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz said repudiated the previous U.S. led push to free capitalism from the constraints of government. "This is a major step forward and a reversal of the ideology of the 1990s, and at a very official level, a rejection of the ideas pushed by the U.S. and others, it's a historic moment when the world came together and said we were wrong to push deregulation," said Stiglitz.
The moment when the world came together, a moment Obama called, "the turning point" a new collectivism all equal in power and might. This moment in time is a turning point, but not in the way Obama wants it to be remembered, the invisible hand believes this is the moment the 2009 G20 Economic Summit when the USA jumped the shark in world affairs.
For you uninformed in pop-culture cliches, jumping the shark refers to a point in time when a television show or series' history where the plot veers off into the absurd or out-of-the-ordinary characterizations making the television show lose its original appeal and has passed their peak. The colloquialism comes from the TV show Happy Days, where Fonzie actually jumped a shark. At that point, you knew it was just a matter of time before Happy days was off the air.
Now, the USA has joined the forces of Europe and other communistic, socialistic countries, no longer is America the Super Power that dictates, no longer is America the leader in the world, no longer America alone, Obama's path is a one way road to be like Europe, to be like his comrades. The only problem by going down this path enables other would be powers to fill the void and the USA will no longer be willing or able to thwart that advance, because just like Happy Days, the USA has jumped the shark and our time as a rating leader has been canceled.
Obama Says USA will rebuild and emerge stronger... Obama vows to increase number of soldiers... Obama vows to seek cure for cancer 'in our time'... Obama says bank bailout may cost more than expected... Obama promises universal EDUCATION THROUGH COLLEGE... Obama promises universal health care...
Obama blames Bush ...
Comrade Obama promises to REBUILD THE COMMUNIST PARTY & EMERGE STRONGER.
President Barack Obama chose an Arabic satellite TV network for his first formal television interview as president, part of a concerted effort to repair relations with the Muslim world that were damaged under the previous administration.
Obama cited his Muslim background and relatives, practically a taboo issue during the U.S. presidential campaign, and said in the interview, which aired Tuesday, that one of his main tasks was to communicate to Muslims "that the Americans are not your enemy."
The interview on the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya news channel aired as Obama's new envoy to the region, former Sen. George J. Mitchell, arrived in Egypt on Tuesday for a visit that will also take him to Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
Obama said the U.S. had made mistakes in the past but "that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there's no reason why we can't restore that."
Let's all sing Kumbaya, or better yet lets all sing the coke song, Obama would love to buy the Muslim world a coke and live in perfect harmony. Here were two answers that bring a chill up my leg of fear, what have we elected? Buying a Coke is not a policy to deal with Terror or Iran, extending an open hand is not the way to go. Here are the two Obama answers that should scare every American from the Al-Arabiya interview.
Q: President Bush framed the war on terror conceptually in a way that was very broad, “war on terror,” and used sometimes certain terminology that the many people — Islamic fascism. You’ve always framed it in a different way, specifically against one group called al Qaeda and their collaborators. And is this one way of –
THE PRESIDENT: I think that you’re making a very important point. And that is that the language we use matters. And what we need to understand is, is that there are extremist organizations — whether Muslim or any other faith in the past — that will use faith as a justification for violence. We cannot paint with a broad brush a faith as a consequence of the violence that is done in that faith’s name.
And so you will I think see our administration be very clear in distinguishing between organizations like al Qaeda — that espouse violence, espouse terror and act on it — and people who may disagree with my administration and certain actions, or may have a particular viewpoint in terms of how their countries should develop. We can have legitimate disagreements but still be respectful. I cannot respect terrorist organizations that would kill innocent civilians and we will hunt them down.
Q: Will the United States ever live with a nuclear Iran? And if not, how far are you going in the direction of preventing it?
THE PRESIDENT: You know, I said during the campaign that it is very important for us to make sure that we are using all the tools of U.S. power, including diplomacy, in our relationship with Iran... Now, the Iranian people are a great people, and Persian civilization is a great civilization. Iran has acted in ways that’s not conducive to peace and prosperity in the region: their threats against Israel; their pursuit of a nuclear weapon which could potentially set off an arms race in the region that would make everybody less safe; their support of terrorist organizations in the past — none of these things have been helpful.
But I do think that it is important for us to be willing to talk to Iran, to express very clearly where our differences are, but where there are potential avenues for progress. And we will over the next several months be laying out our general framework and approach. And as I said during my inauguration speech, if countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us...
Lets extend a hand, buy a coke and lets talk, and the World will be a better place as we all sing the Coke song . . .
Christmas in Hawaii, the $9 million beach house, the palm trees, the surf, the sun, the beaches, the hula girls, the aloha shirt? Well leave the aloha shirt in the suitcase, there is Change in the world, lets say a New World Order, which World Leader is the real voice for Joe SIXPACK?
You have to wonder what in the wide world of sports is going on here?
You have Vladimir Putin fishing topless:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy ... paddling a canoe on Lake Winnipesaukee while on vacation in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire :
Even, IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME!!! Hillary and her puppet getting into the act:
And our beloved leader and his wife Barack Hussein Obama in Hawaii:
This is the state of the NEW WORLD ORDER, jacuzzis, saunas, massages at the G8 Summit in Italy July 2009. But why was Obama and Michelle photogged by the paparazzi?, there can be only one explanation.
Barack Hussein Obama was trying to appease the gays, this is the only explanation. Obama wanted to give something back for his insensitive pick of Reverend Rick Warren. So, Barack Hussein Obama purposefully exposed his bare chest for all gays to see, thinking this would some way brush aside his anti-gay pick earlier in the month. However, the AP REPORTS
Gay-rights leaders' enthusiasm for Obama subsides
One Gay Activist Leader called it a "double punch to the gut" — the choice of a pastor they consider hostile for a prime inauguration role and dashed hopes for the first openly gay Cabinet member.
Enthusiasm among gays over Barack Obama's election has deflated rapidly in the days since his inaugural organizers announced that the invocation would be delivered by the Rev. Rick Warren, a prominent pastor who backed a recent ballot measure banning same-sex marriage in his home state of California.
The Warren announcement coincided with the final round of Obama's Cabinet selections — confirming that gays on the short list for interior secretary and labor secretary would not get those posts.
"It felt like a double punch to the gut," said Denis Dison of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which supports openly gay political candidates. "Now, he is trying to appease us with the bare chested photo, Barack has no compassion or sensitivity for us gays."
The Invisible Hand wanted to check this out for our readers, so I went were the gays are . . . Nordstrom. Since it was sleeting and icy in Kansas City, I was only able to track down one gay shopper in the shoe department at Nordstrom.
I asked the gay shopper about the released Obama SIxpack photo and what it meant? "Obama has a nice gut and the butt, oh I will not go there, I am so upset , I just maxed my Visa at Nordstrom's. I just do not feel like talking about it, it makes no sense whatsoever, why does he torment us?" "Please, do not use my name, my mom does not realize I am gay."
The Invisible Hand never reveals sources and your gayness is and will remain a secret, and I want to thank you for being my first gay source for my blog. As you can see Obama's plan of baring it all has back-fired with the gays, maybe Obama-girl has a different take, however two days before Christmas and Obama's bare chest is doing nothing for the gays.
The London Times reports today that Pirates are wreaking havoc off Africa, threatening world trade. But as governments fight back, the raiders are getting more daring and their demands are growing.
Google Somali Pirates and the headlines abound, but this is nothing new even in Somalia, below is a map of the recorded Pirate attacks of the coast of Somalia, East Africa from 2007;
Surprise attacks by Muslim pirates, lost lives, cargo and ships lost, a U.S. president who decides to let slip the dogs of war --these are the headlines of today, yet these are ripped not from the headlines but from the pages of history books. If you have forgotten the Barbary War, Joseph Wheelan who wrote the book "Jefferson's War: The First War on Terror 1801-1805" wants to remind you.
"When it is remembered at all," the former newspaper reporter writes in "Jefferson's War," "the 1801-5 war with Tripoli is often recalled as a swashbuckling adventure bookended by America's two struggles with England. ... In truth, the Barbary War was America's first war on terror."
For two centuries, the piratical Muslim powers of Tripoli, Tunis, Algiers and Morocco had treated the Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic as their personal hunting preserve, capturing hundreds of thousands of Christian slaves and millions of dollars' worth of booty. And although their power had faded significantly by the end of the 18th century, the North Africans continued to extort additional millions from Western nations by means of regularly broken treaties - "a jihad protection racket," in Wheelan's phrase.
When Thomas Jefferson assumed the presidency in 1801, the Barbary States and the idea of dealing with them by naval force had been in his mind for years. And so U.S. ships were dispatched _ to serve as a "squadron of observation" if violence proved unnecessary or (in the words of Navy Secretary Samuel Smith) "to protect our commerce and chastise their insolence - by sinking, burning or destroying their ships and vessels wherever you shall find them."
As it happened, the Barbary War was not a constant clash of water-borne cannon - frustrations emerged because some U.S. officers proved less than pugnacious - and "Jefferson's War" smells less of blood and gunpowder than some might expect. But the martially inclined will be intrigued by the Philadelphia story - a daring raid to destroy a captured U.S. vessel - as well as an expedition aimed at "regime change" that inspired the "Marine Hymn" line "... to the shores of Tripoli."
Wheelan draws lines between "The Terror" of 200 years ago and that of today, and the headlines in the past few weeks draw the lines boldly. Yet, something is missing . . . could it be a leader of Jefferson's calibre?
Thirty percent of Europe's Oil arrives via the Gulf of Aden and When the Sirius Star and its US$100 million crude oil cargo and 25 crew were hijacked by Somali pirates nine days ago, one country was ready to respond immediately. The USA, I am afraid not, but it was the up-in-coming Naval Super Power to be, INDIA. Yes, India is wanting to show its muscle, after a successful trip to the Moon, India dispatched the INS Tabor.The National reports that India's anti-piracy aggression is a sign of an emerging Super-Power, the article continues, the United States has been particularly feeble. Last week the US navy told shipping companies to ensure their own security by hiring private contractors. Yet over three years ago Adm Michael Mullin, now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, suggested a global security partnership to tackle maritime piracy and terrorism. The only result is the US-run Global Fleet Station, a pilot version of which was launched last year in the Caribbean, suggesting the United States is either living in the past or watching too many movies. Contrast this with the Indian government authorised hot pursuit of pirate vessels, announced the imminent dispatch of three more warships and a reconnaissance aircraft and urged the United Nations to orchestrate joint action. The International Maritime Bureau has praised India’s response and urged the international community to follow it. The INS Tabor below, has since sunk a Somalia pirate "Mother Ship" in the treacherous Gulf of Aden." in
the Gulf of Aden, the world’s most treacherous waterway
Where is Jefferson? Where is the USA? Is the USA on the verge of losing its dominance in the world? Is Somalian Pirates along with the War in Iraq, the War in Afghanistan, and the coming show-down with Iran, along with the Economic turmoil in our markets the final steps toward the future of the USA as a Super-Power of yesterday? For the USSR it was perestroika, For the United Kingdom it was the Suez Canal 1956 crises, Is it the Somalia Pirates for the USA? Where is Jefferson when you need him?
Prime Minister Gordon Brown & Barack Obama Seeks New World Order . . .
President-elect Barack Obama seeks New World Order & Global Citizenship . . .
"In Europe, the view that America is part of what has gone wrong in our world, rather than a force to help make it right, has become all too common. In America, there are voices that deride and deny the importance of Europe's role in our security and our future. Both views miss the truth - that Europeans today are bearing new burdens and taking more responsibility in critical parts of the world; and that just as American bases built in the last century still help to defend the security of this continent, so does our country still sacrifice greatly for freedom around the globe.
Yes, there have been differences between America and Europe. No doubt, there will be differences in the future. But the burdens of global citizenship continue to bind us together. A change of leadership in Washington will not lift this burden. In this new century, Americans and Europeans alike will be required to do more - not less. Partnership and cooperation among nations is not a choice; it is the one way, the only way, to protect our common security and advance our common humanity."
REPRESENTATIVE RON PAUL CONFRONTS FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIRMAN BERNANKE ON GLOBAL
Congressman Ron Paul confronted Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke this morning about plans to replace the dollar with a new global currency during the House Financial Services Committee meeting on Capitol Hill.
“Already we see talk….about a new international world reserve currency and to me that’s pretty important because the fiat dollar reserve system is not gonna work anymore,” said the Congressman, adding that currencies have failed throughout history. Full Story
