Obama, Bush and Cheney, in the same FEMA Camp, they can do wild sex together.

Bush invoked executive privilege to keep Clinton-era documents secret. The move shocked Republican lawmakers. Dan Burton - the Chairman of the House Government Reform Committee, even threatened to hold Bush in contempt of Congress unless he releases several sets of subpoenaed Justice Department documents. Bush promised to never comply with congressional investigators. Bush is determined to keep Clinton's crimes concealed.
Bush also flatly refused to hand over records of internal energy task force meetings that could incriminate Bush and Cheney regarding allegations of conflict of interest in the Enron scandal.

That headline should be: "Obama would like us to believe he's stopping NSA spying on IMF, World Bank headquarters"

How IMF/World Bank bring down a country and destroy the resources of the people. First you open up the capital markets. That is, you sell off your local banks to foreign banks. Then you go to what's called market-based pricing. That's the stuff like in California where everything is free market and you end up with water bills no one can pay. Then open up your borders to trade - complete free marketeering. Its like the opium wars. This isn't free trade; this is coercion trade. This is war. They are taking apart economies through this.

The World Bank - IMF is owned and controlled by NM Rothschild and 30 to 40 of the wealthiest people in the world. For over 150 years they have planned to take the world over through money. The former chief economist of the World Bank, Joe Stiglitz, was fired recently. He pointed out to top executives that every country the IMF/World Bank got involved in ended up with a crashed economy, a destroyed government, and sometimes in flames with riots. Jim Wolfensen, the president of the World Bank would not comment on his dismissal.

What a joke, the corporate powers believe people are just plain stupid and we believe these lies.

It's likely they spy on them anyway to prevent any real leaks other than the goverment sponsored ones.

The IMF and World Bank are spy factories also.

Note that the IMF were the first to have dicussions with Iran before the detente with the West was allowed. Iran is now in the western camp.

And we are to believe this because a serial liar working within an institution that has engaged in serial lying and obfuscation says that it is now going to end a process that only requires a program to run by some anonymous operator. Without substantial oversight by a nongovernment entity, it is only a matter of time before the switch is flicked back on if it was ever really turned off. The American government has proven time and time again that it cannot be trusted, we should not extend it trust, we should extend it our enmity. It's time for change in Washington, it's time for a new government.

Boys and girls you have been cheating on me again. I thought I was the only one. This time its with the IMF and World Bank. Now this wouldn't be up there in the Second Circuit in NY would it? It is a good thing you all didn't stopped and frisk these guys because then they would be really mad.
