Guess Who Said It?

When I read the remarks of President Obama and Prime Minister Gordon Brown after their meeting at the Oval Office on March 3, 2009 and the speech of the latter to the Joint Session of Congress on March 4, 2009, I realized that a growing antagonism has emerged between certain factions of the ruling elites in the City of London and in Washington DC.
The first warning of the acute differences was sounded by President Obama himself and it was most surprising that the mass media paid hardly attention to it. In his weekly address on February 28, 2009, President Obama said:
Read the underlined words again.
It is clear something is definitely amiss within the ruling elites and President Obama has thrown the gauntlet to his adversaries. The skeptics may say that we should not read too much into this above quoted paragraph, as it could be mere spin to rally the troops in times of crisis. Time will tell.
I take the view that it is inevitable that the members of the ruling elites would go for each other's throats because those who were given the charge to ensure that the money-machine keeps running have screwed up big time. Someone must answer for the fiasco.
The Blame Game
Confirmation that the blame game has started in earnest can be found in the aforesaid remarks of President Obama and Prime Minister Gordon Brown on March 3, 2009 given after their meeting at the Oval Office and Brown's speech to Congress on March 4, 2009.
Let us come back to the issue of the money-lenders. For some strange reason, many people are put off by the term "money-lenders" but are ever so comfortable with bankers.
But are not bankers, money-lenders?
In fact I would say that money-lenders are more honourable than your high street bankers, as they can only rob you in the millions. The global bankers, they rape and plunder in the trillions!
Is it any wonder that Gordon Brown and President Obama, the political representatives of the Power Elites have decided that it is about time that these financial harlots are to be brought under control before they wreck the entire global power structure?
Let us have no illusions about Obama and Gordon Brown. They are going after these financial harlots not because they want to protect us from these criminals, but because for too long the political faction had to play second fiddle to the financial faction in the overall scheme of global one world government.
Until lately, money power triumphed over political power. However, when the entire financial system broke into pieces, it was time to settle scores!
Read for yourself:
Prime Minister Gordon Brown's remarks at the White House, March 3, 2009
President Obama's response at the White House, March 3, 2009
Prime Minister Gordon Brown's Speech to Congress, March 4, 2009
Blink and read again the underlined words. You have just read that Prime Minister Gordon Brown has made the call to "outlaw the shadow banking system and offshore tax havens!"
Even if you are a skeptic and holds the view that the quotes are mere spin to delude the people, you cannot deny that Prime Minister Brown has let the genie out of the bottle!
Whether there are any follow through actions by President Obama and Prime Minister Brown, the global citizens must take action independently, if they want to save their children, and their children's children from decades of impoverishment and extreme hardship.
The most powerful leader of the Western world and his side-kick has openly and unreservedly acknowledged that we are having a global financial melt-down. And that the cause for this catastrophe is the shadow banking system!
There is now an open warfare between the political factions and the financial factions of the global power elites. This will be ugly. And as President Obama warned, "they are gearing for a fight " He has also responded to the challenge: "So am I."
Given the above scenario, we must first take out the financial elites, and thereafter the political faction, failing which we will all plunge into the black hole of financial Armageddon!
