Glenn Beck: Soros Conference New Bretton Woods will arrange Global ‘Financial Order’

This story hit Glenn Beck this morning on his radio and on his blog. We have different details. First is part of the Blaze post. There is a link also to the Economic Policy Journal which has great info. Update from Bretton Woods conference in progress now Here

The Blaze:

On April 8, dozens of “academic, business and government policy thought leaders” are scheduled to gather for a forum reminiscent of the 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped launch the World Bank and International Monetary Fund following World War II.

The George Soros-founded Institute for New Economic Thinking will hold its annual conference April 8-11, 2011 at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, N.H.  According to the group’s website, the event will bring together economic figures such as Soros, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker to discuss a new, globalized vision of economics in the post-war world.

Here is part of our earlier post: George Soros Plans New Bretton Woods Conference click on the link for my full story.

Here is a link to George’s own words. Please read it. hereA New World Architecture written in 2009 will let you know what we are in for and his plan for this very conference this Spring. Included is a “One Currency”  He is an honest man.

“Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council. That process needs to be initiated by the US, but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals. They are reluctant members of the Bretton Woods institutions, which are dominated by countries that are no longer dominant. The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters”.

For a list of the attendees: Logistics Monster: (WordPress is having linky issues at times)

You may experience the same cold shivers I experienced when you check out the advisory board for this particular think-tank including but not limited to a faculty member of the New School for Social Research (remember those folks promoting seizure of your 401(k)?), and one of our favs, Drummond Pike, founder of the Tides Foundation.

The core problem of the world monetary system after World War II was essentially that the gold standard had broken down, or rather, government had destroyed what remained of the old-fashioned gold standard through relentless inflation, debt, and devaluation. Economists in the Keynesian tradition had encouraged this, viewing money creation as some sort of panacea for all that ailed the world economy.

Keynes, the maestro of the Bretton Woods Conference, had recommended this and celebrated the results. To him, a flexible and standardless currency was the key to macroeconomic manipulation of his beloved aggregates. In a perverse way, he was right about this. A government on the gold standard is seriously constrained. It can’t take a sledgehammer to aggregate supply and aggregate demand. It can’t spend beyond its means. It must pay for the programs it creates through taxation, which means having to curb the appetite for welfare and warfare. There can be no such thing as a Keynesian state on the gold standard, any more then a cocaine addict or compulsive gambler can be on a strict budget.

As was the fashion, world elites assembled to plan some gigantic coordinated solution. They met from July 1 to July 22, 1944, at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, and drafted the Articles of Agreement. It was nearly a year and a half later, in December 1945, that the agreement was ratified. On March 1947, one of the monstrosities created during event, the International Monetary Fund, began operations.[The World Bank was also created at Bretton Woods-RW]

What was the goal of the plan? It was the same goal as at the founding of the Federal Reserve and the same goal that has guided every monetary plan in modern history. The stated idea was to promote economic growth, encourage macroeconomic stability, and, most absurdly, tame inflation. Of course, it did none of these things.

Bunkerville full story here: George Soros Plans New Bretton Woods Conference

The Blaze:

“This conference reflects INET’s dedication to inspiring and provoking new economic thinking,” the website says.

“Crisis and trauma offer us a rare opportunity to work together to create real lasting change.  This is one of those times,” INET says.  Promoting “real” justice and equity requires “reinventing” the prevailing economic model — capitalism

Don’t mess with a beauty queen packing heat

Eastern Right snagged a piece that brings a bit of joy here at Bunkerville. If you havn’t had a chance to read her blog, be sure and take a look see. Slide over for her comments and other picture.

Never mess with a beauty queen packing heat.

“I had my gun drawn, focused in on him; as he moved, my gun moved,” she said. “I waited for my shot, and when I saw an opening, I fired.” One less to mess with the ladies!

 

Meghan Brown had fired her pink .38-caliber handgun only inside a shooting range. Even there, she said, she wasn’t very good.The 2009 Miss Tierra Verde, 25 and a slender brunet, had trouble pulling back the trigger. When she did manage, she said she almost never hit the target.

That Saturday was different.

A man barged into her home, attacking her and beating her fiance. Adrenaline pumping, she fetched the gun from her bedroom. She trained it on the man, following his movements as he tussled with her fiance.

She saw an opening. She pulled the trigger. Pop. Pop. Pop. Pop.

Albert F. Hill, 42, never got up.

“I’m glad it was me,” Brown said. “Not everybody else is that prepared, you know what I mean. Not everybody else is walking around with a loaded .38.”

Obama panders to the Latino Voters upon his return to the U.S.

When I heard that the first interview Obama did when heading back to the USA was to grant an interview with Spanish langauge Univision, I knew we had the same old Obama. No address to the nation as to what he is about regarding the Middle East. First and foremost, remain in campaign mode.

Obama, when asked about an exit strategy during an interview with the Spanish-language network Univision, didn’t lay out a vision for ending the international action, but rather said: “The exit strategy will be executed this week in the sense that we will be pulling back from our much more active efforts to shape the environment.” News 24

 So that is what this whole South American thing was about. Pandering to the Spanish-speaking part of the world and the U.S. When looking for others who may have a thought that his dissing of us Gringo’s as sort of those in the way, I came upon this post from the Huff. So another Town Hall meeting with the Latino voters on March 28.  Anyone heard about his Executive order in October 2010? Here from  Huffington Post:

On the U.S. Department of Education’s blog, the White House announced that President Obama will coordinate with Spanish-language media company Univision to broadcast a town hall meeting on March 28.

Titled “Noticias Univision Presenta: Es El Momento — El Presidente, Los Hispanos y la Educación” (The Moment is Now: The President, Hispanics and Education), the town hall forum will feature President Obama discussing the state of Hispanic educational attainment in the U.S. with students, parents and teachers.

In October 2010, Obama signed an executive order to boost educational achievement for Hispanics and Latinos, reports AP. Obama noted that about 20 percent of students in America are Hispanic or Latino, yet they are statistically more likely to drop out.

He said:

“This is not just a Latino problem. This is an American problem. We’ve got to solve it, because if we allow these trends to continue, it won’t just be one community that falls behind. We will all fall behind together.”
