One World WHAT?!?!

Surprise! Recent headlines suggest that the US-led, worldwide economic ... *cough* unpleasantries *cough* are spurring a global movement for "coordinated control." I mean, "order." Or at least something undoubtedly BAD.

Glenn Beck is on it.
Straight YouTube video (h/t Daily Liberty Research):

And here are a few stories:
  • Only the First (sound familiar?)
  • Happening All Over the World : ("perhaps it's time for a more coordinated approach globally")
  • Rewriting Global Rules : Berlusconi says we're "talking about a new Bretton Woods.'' The Bretton Woods Agreements were adopted to rebuild the international economic system after World War II in a hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire." (hmm... socialist FDR "rebuilt" something international - and hasn't that worked out well?) Sarko "l'américain" is totally on-board, too...
And to all of this, the White House says, "of COURSE not..." Best quote of the article: "There are absolutely no plans or discussions to interfere with the functioning of markets in the United States" - well, aside from what we've already done to completely DESTROY them... but no, why would you be concerned about international meddling? *jaw dropping in disbelief*

Oh, and here's a clearer assessment than I would have expected out of a main news service...
The government is authorized under the law to buy "troubled assets."

Those assets include mortgages, but according to the law, they may also include "any other financial instrument" that is "necessary to promote financial market stability ..."

It is the government's position that this authority extends to bank stocks.

"The plan we are executing is aggressive. It is the right plan. It will take time to have its full impact. It is flexible enough to adapt as the situation changes. And it is big enough to work," Bush said.

EEK! The only thing scarier than, "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help," is "I'm from the government, and I'll do WHATEVER IT TAKES to help!"
