During the 2008 campaign, Barack Obama said that his favorite movie was "The Godfather" with Marlon Brando. He liked it so much he enjoys doing an imitation of "Don Corleone" for his friends. For his enemies, he's about as close to being the real thing as you can be without being a Sicilian. Like a Sicilian don, Obama—like those who preceded him (constitutionally) to 1600 Pennsylvania—has become one of the three most powerful politicians in the world. I hesitate to refer to Obama as a "leader" since he has none of the characteristics that world leaders must possess for their nations to be economically and militarily secure. But, that's what happens when you put an inept, totally inexperienced community organizer in a job that requires an experienced leader. (His predecessors were all the single most powerful men in the world.) That may be why the Russians now refer to him as "the Godfather."
Obama, like the Chicago mobster he is at heart under the slick talking political veneer, believes he will succeed if he bullies and intimidates the American people enough to frighten them into abject submission. Or, at least, scares them to silence. Complaining about the Tea Partiers at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Arsht Center for Performing Arts in Miami, Florida on April 15, 2010 for protesting his political agenda, Obama noted that on April 15 thousands of Tea Partiers picketed 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to protest his tax policies—and his capricious spending of their money. Obama said: "In all, we passed 25 different tax cuts last year. And one thing we haven't done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250 thousand a year—another promise that we kept." (In reality, Obama dumped almost three trillion dollars in new taxes on the taxpayers since January, 2009.
Congress simply hasn't designated which pockets of whose pants the Godfather and his thugs will take that money from. Congress, which now expects to lose from 30 to 50 House seats is trying to minimize its election losses by waiting until after the election to complete the task of raising taxes.) In his speech, Obama continued, mocking the Tea Party with the words of yet another movie character, this time Jack Nicholson's Col. Nathan Jessep, saying, "I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been at these [Tea Party] rallies about taxes..." then throwing in his Jessep remark: "...I would rather they just said thank you!"
It's not just white Tea Partiers who have a vendetta against the Godfather. Pravda, which doesn't like Obama either, reported on Sept. 25 that a black woman, Valma Hart (who Pravda called "the voice of America") blindsided the Godfather at a rally in Washington, DC on Monday, Sept. 20. Pravda noted that the assembled media "...almost lost their lunch" when Hart asked her question. Given the floor by Obama, she said: "I am a chief financial officer for...AmVets here in Washington. I'm also a mother. I'm a wife. I'm an American veteran, and I'm one of your middle-class Americans. And, quite frankly, I'm exhausted. I'm exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for—and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. I have been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I'm one of those people, and I'm waiting, sir. I'm waiting. I don't fee it yet. And, I thought, while it wouldn't be in great measure, I would feel it in some small measure.
I have two children in private school. And the financial recession has taken an enormous toll on my family. My husband and I joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives. But, quite frankly, it's started to knock on our door and ring true that it might be where we're headed again. And, quite frankly...I need you to answer this honestly—is this my new reality?" In one fell swoop, Valma Hart erased the racist card in the dialogue about the nature of Obama's agenda.
Obama was stunned, not expecting to be bushwhacked by a black woman in what was supposed to be a very friendly audience. His eyes darted around for someone else to defuse the awkward silence by firing off a new question, allowing him to ignore Hart. The TV producer whispered to him: "Psst—You're on TV! Please answer her!" Obama looked at the TelePrompTer and read the que: "We're moving in the right direction."
Of course he is. The Godfather and his Chicago thugs know exactly what they are doing. Their covert agenda is to deliberately destroy the US economy. That is precisely the "change" George Soros-backed Obama was paid to deliver by Soros' funding of his presidential campaign. While logic tells us the Soros-globalist express could be derailed with tariffs and other protectionism measures, the socialist elites in Congress in the pockets of Soros and others like him, are rigidly opposed to any form of protectionism, screaming that protectionism is anti-free enterprise. The media and the left has done a good job of selling the notion that protectionism repudiates the virtues of competitive free trade in which the free market determines who succeeds and who fails. In reality, every nation in the world except the United States uses tariffs to keep the US from gaining equal access to their consumer markets.
This has been going on since the end of World War II when our allies and defeated enemies cried for access to the best consumer market in the world. Feeling an obligation to help Europe rebuild their war torn economies, the United States embarked on a reckless plan in which they deliberately neglected to safeguard the American economy believing it could absorb the demands placed on it by predator economies—both friends and enemies—to sell their wares to US consumers without reciprocating to US manufacturers. As America went from being the world's largest lender nation to the world's worst debtor nation, the US government suddenly woke up to the fact that it needed foreign capital to prop up the US dollar. That opened the door for currency manipulators like Soros. Soros gambles on the rising or falling value of currencies. Today he's betting against all of them by investing his own assets in gold. Which, of course, is one of the reasons why gold is still holding at just under $1,300 an ounce. And why that is likely to continue in the short run.
Here are the 20 most vulnerable currencies in order of vulnerability: Iceland, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, Spain, Latvia, Ireland, Ukraine, Romania, Lithuania, Turkey, Bulgaria, Egypt, India, Italy, the United States, Estonia, Poland, Kazakhstan, and Indonesia. The determination was based on the lack of liquidity and esoteric nature of those currencies in the CDS spreads, based on those countries' potential for gross domestic product growth. It is interesting that the economy of Indonesia is ranked better than the economy of the United States. But then, since they have most of our jobs, that should not surprise anyone.

In an exclusive interview with Reuters on Sept. 15, Soros said that "...gold is the ultimate bubble [and that] this is a period of great uncertainty so nothing is very safe. In a deflationary environment he added, 'gold is the only...bull market. It just made a new high yesterday...'" ($1,274.75) "...In the present circumstances that may continue. It will be very interesting to see if there is a decline in the next few weeks because practically everything that makes a new high almost immediately afterwards reverses and disappoints. I called gold the ultimate bubble which means it may go higher, but it's certainly not safe, and it's not going to last forever." Yet, Soros is betting his chips against every fiat currency in the world. He may not have long to wait. For part two click below.
