LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary Features New Works by Damien Hirst and David Bailey Among Others

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The 17th Annual LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary will feature the California debut of new works by artists Damien Hirst and photographer David Bailey. Locally accessible for the first time, new works by Hirst include ‘The Souls’ series of shimmering foil-­‐block butterfly prints and gold foil block skulls ‘Death or Glory.’ Bailey will exhibit new works of still lives, fashion images, and portraits. Both artists are represented by Paul Stolper Contemporary Art Gallery from London, UK.

Additional gallery highlights include a collection of works by one of California’s most significant contemporary artists, Tom Holland. Holland’s work will be presented by David Richards Contemporary from Santa Fe, NM and will feature pieces from the 1960s, a period in which Holland’s work transitioned from traditional painting on a two-­‐dimensional plane to more literal, three-­‐dimensional constructions. Tom Holland’s work is in the collections of many major museums in the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

Pan American Art Projects from Miami, FL will feature Oakland-­‐based artist Tracey Snelling, based on her experiences in China and the United States, creating a cultural dialogue between the two. Jack Rutberg Fine Arts from Los Angeles, CA will showcase a variety of artists including Jordi Alcaraz, Karel Appel, Norman Bluhm, Hans Burkhardt, George Condo, Clarie Falkenstein, Patrick Graham, George Herms, Pablo Picasso, Ruth Weisberg, Jerome Witkin, and Francisco Zuniga. The LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary will also feature select Chinese galleries that have never exhibited in the United States. Chinese artists include Im Jari and Zhang Xianyong, represented by FQ Projects from Shanghai; China, Jiang Peng Yi, represented by ME Photo Gallery from Beijing; China, and woodblock prints by Liu Qingyuan from CM2 Gallery, from Los Angeles.

The LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary is committed to showing the highest quality works ranging from Jamie Reid, Ed Ruscha, Armando Romero, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Arshile Gorky, Jim Dine, Andy Warhol, Fernando Botero, and others. Designed to showcase cutting-­‐edge artwork as well as forward thinking artists, this show will feature performance pieces, mixed media installations, video installations, contemporary paintings, a sculpture garden, and a series of curated special exhibitions.

The LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary will feature additional curated spaces including Hypoxia artist James Peterson. Curated by The Los Angeles Art Association, Hypoxia will be a flowing form designed in the likeliness of algae blooms. This ‘organism’ will wash over the space and redefine the momentum of traffic. Fabien Castantier Gallery will present a live art performance by celebrated Parisian graffiti artist, Speedy
Graphito. Graphito will paint on-­‐site throughout the 4-­‐day show.

The LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary Symposia Series will focus on the confluence of art & design with interactive discussions led by Milton Esterow, Suzanne Lacy, and a book signing by renowned artist Hunt Slonem.

Additional programming for the LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary includes Project Spaces which offers solo artist exhibition space to select participating galleries. Galleries invited to participate for project spaces at the 2012 show include Boma Modern from Santa Fe, NM; Davidson Contemporary from Seattle, WA; and The Master League of Arts from Moscow, Russia.

The LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary will kick off with a high-­‐profile Opening Night Premiere Party on Wednesday, January 18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Hosted by actor and Art of Elysium supporter David Arquette, proceeds from the Opening Night Premiere Party will enable Preview beneficiaries The Art of Elysium to expand its program to bring arts to critically ill hospitalized children and increase substantially the number of school children who visit the Getty through the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Education Department program for Title One School visits.

With more than 5,000 patrons in 2011, the Opening Night Premiere Party has consistently drawn attendees who love art, including museum patrons, political dignitaries, collectors, celebrities, and supporters of arts education. 2011 LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary attendees included: Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez, Finola Hughes, Russell Young, Shepard Fairey, Kat von D., Cheech Marin, Councilman Tom LaBonge, Chinese Consul General Qiu Shaofang, Executive Director of the DCA, Olga Garay, and Gayle and Ed Roski.

Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri Host Celebrity Cook-Off

Food Network stars Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri are hosting a new Celebrity Apprentice-like cooking show which puts eight (mostly) throwback celebs in one kitchen. The show is called Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off, and it premieres January 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Lucky contestants include 90's pop stars Aaron Carter (who is now sporting a goatee) and Joey Fatone (still sporting his goatee), as well as Coolio, Cheech Marin, and Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella.

Ray and Fieri will coach the budding chefs, who are "divided into ‘Team Rachael’ and ‘Team Guy,' [and] each episode features celebrity contestants battling it out in a fun, fast-paced culinary fight-to-the-finish," according to a press release. The winner gets $50,000 for the charity of their choice.

We're expecting a couple of tantrums and cut fingers, since the trailer features some contestants falling to the floor. Also notable: Coolio claims he's "the ghetto gourmet, baby," Joey Fatone says, "Dessertalicious," and for some odd reason there's a piñata.

Rob Schneider Sitcom will Debut January 12

CBS' new Rob Schneider comedy, ¡Rob!, will debut Jan. 12 at 8:30 p.m., the network announced as part of a pair of midseason premiere dates Monday.

¡Rob!, which stars Schneider as a lifelong bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican family, will take over Rules of Engagement's timeslot; CBS said Rules would return sometime later in the season. ¡Rob! also stars Cheech Marin, Claudia Bassols, Diana Maria Riva, Eugenio Derbez and Lupe Ontiveros.

No word on why CBS would hire Cheech Marin, an alleged wife beater.

LA's The Place Catches Up with Cheech Marin

LA's The Place host Jeff Gaskin chats with legendary comedian Cheech Marin at the Oscar's gifting room.  This is where celebrities get expensive things for free even though they can afford to buy them.  

Cheech loves getting free things.  This is one of the reasons he does so many charity golf tournaments.  For instance, if it's a BMW tournament, BMW gives all the participants a beemer for a few weeks.

Tacky?  Yes.

Peter Frampton Talks About Working on Up in Smoke

Many people don't know this, but music legend, Peter Frampton, was one of the many artists that worked on the Cheech and Chong Up in Smoke Soundtrack.

When asked about it, he says...
“That’s going to be something to talk about till the day I die because everybody loved the movie so much. It was a lot of fun to do that. That’s when I was played with Waddy Wachtel Warren Zevon and those guys. We did most of the soundtrack I mean they used songs from other artist but all the background music was what we recorded for that movie. When they’re driving around in the van you hear the music in the background could be a reggae song or a rock song. I don’t think the songs we did really had names or anything we were just providing music for the background.”

Good Times Announces Cheech & Chong Radio Campaign

Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM) today announced a new radio campaign featuring iconic 1970’s comedians Cheech & Chong to promote their limited time Santiago’s Green Chile menu.

"We asked our ad agency, Sukle Advertising, to come up with a creative platform that pushes the envelope with breakthrough qualities consistent with our historically irreverent brand personality and they certainly filled that bill with very funny scripts delivered by Cheech and Chong,” said Boyd Hoback, President and CEO. He added, "We originally questioned whether Cheech & Chong are relevant to our customer base, but they are gaining new traction and affinity, particularly with the millennial crowd having appeared on the Simpsons, That ‘70s Show and a national comedy tour. While their personas are still tied to their movie and comedy album characters from many years ago, our ads make light of them turning All Natural and Good Times now being the dispensary of happiness.”

The company said that it has created three radio spots that will air throughout October and November. The ads highlight Good Times’ Cheeseburger Burrito, Green Chile Fries and Green Chile Sliders, all featuring Santiago’s authentic Hatch Valley New Mexico green chile.

Hoback added, "We found that our customers use us primarily for the quality of our all natural, made to order products and because they feel better about themselves for choosing Good Times, so we are aligning our brand communications under the theme of ‘Happiness Made to Order.’ Using Cheech & Chong is a fun, tongue-in-cheek way to bring that to life and not take ourselves too seriously.”

Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard has 46 restaurants, mostly in Colorado serving premium quality, 100% all natural beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, and fresh frozen custard.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws. The word "intend” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, which may cause Good Times’ actual results to differ materially from results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These risks include such factors as the uncertain nature of current restaurant development plans and the ability to implement those plans, delays in developing and opening new restaurants because of weather, local permitting or other reasons, increased competition, cost increases or shortages in raw food products, and other matters discussed under the "Risk Factors” section of Good Times’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 filed with the SEC. Although Good Times may from time to time voluntarily update its forward-looking statements, it disclaims any commitment to do so except as required by securities laws.

Cheech and Chong Pitch 'Magic Brownies' for General Mills Fiber One Brand

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Now in their 60s and 70s, Cheech and Chong need an extra ingredient in their “magic brownies” – fiber.

General Mills is bringing back the iconic stoners, played by Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, for a promotional campaign for Fiber One 90 Calories brownie snacks. The duo stars in a fictional movie trailer for Cheech and Chong’s Magic Brownie Adventure.

Explaining the idea on its company blog, General Mills said the idea was born when somebody called them “magic brownies” in a marketing meeting, and the concept came to life.

The trailer, posted on YouTube, shows Cheech and Chong on a mission to deliver a van of brownies to a Burning Man-like festival called Flaming Pole. Along the way, they’re reminded that "now that you're getting older, you need a new kind of magic from your brownie".

Slightly Stoopid is pleased to announce their live debut at Grateful Dead/Furthur founding member Bob Weir’s TRI Studios on Tuesday, September 13, 2011. The band will perform two sets (acoustic & electric) and the performance will feature guests Karl Denson (Greyboy Allstars, Tiny Universe), Ian Neville (Dumpstaphunk, Funky Meters), and Don Carlos (Black Uhuru), with plenty of surprises in store. In between sets, fans can partake in the first-ever live Stoopid Q&A from TRI Studios, communicating with the band via onscreen Facebook and Twitter feeds.  Tommy Chong will be hosting.

TRI Studios is a state-of-the-art performance studio, broadcasting live HD video and audio streams via the Internet. The show will air live at at 6:00pm PDT, and will also be offered on re-play at 9:00pm PDT. Each streaming costs $10.00 for access. Tickets are on sale now for both showings and can be purchased by visiting or clicking the banner at The band members will be featured speakers at the SFMusicTech Summit on Monday, September 12, 2011, in support of this high profile, groundbreaking broadcast.

Slightly Stoopid is currently on their Seedless Summer 2011 Tour making 25 stops in all, including some of the country’s best outdoor venues, such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, and Cricket Amphitheater in their hometown of San Diego, CA. As The San Diego Union-Tribune recently reported, “Headlining Cricket for the third year in a row is a coup for the Ocean Beach-based group -- a feat unmatched by blink-182, Jason Mraz, Jewel, P.O.D. or any other nationally prominent San Diego act, past or present.” The complete list of Slightly Stoopid’s Seedless Summer 2011 Tour dates is included below.

Formed in 1995 in San Diego, CA’s Ocean Beach by childhood friends Miles Doughty (guitar, bass, vocals) and Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Slightly Stoopid has become one of the most influential and progressive improvisational musical outfits on the tour circuit. As Amped Up Magazine points out, it’s for good reason. “Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove.” Always a festival favorite, Slightly Stoopid has performed at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Outside Lands, Milwaukee Summerfest, Wakarusa, and many others. With their two most recent albums both debuting on Billboard and iTunes charts, the band has sold over 750,000 albums and now releases all material on Doughty and McDonald’s own record label, Stoopid Records.

Chicanitas: Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection to open at the Snite Museum of Art

SOUTH BEND, IND.- The Snite Museum of Art presents Chicanitas, Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection on view beginning Sunday, September 4, 2011.

This exhibition showcases 65 paintings by 26 painters represented in Cheech Marin’s noted collection of Chicano art. Marin, the entertainer well known for his work in movies, television, and improvisational comedy, has been acquiring art for more than 20 years, and he has amassed one of the most renowned collections of Chicano art in private hands.

The Chicano art movement arose in California in response to the political, cultural, and labor causes of the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Inspired by the struggles of migrant farm workers led by labor organizer César Chávez, Chicanismo evolved into a general political and cultural revolution within the United States, stressing political self-empowerment, an assertion of cultural pride, and an affirmation of ethnic identity among Americans of Mexican heritage.

The Cheech Marin Collection includes a number of widely exhibited works from the 1980s and 1990s by such first-generation Chicano artists as Carlos Almaraz, Margaret García, Frank Romero, and Patssi Valdez, whose artistic careers began during the Chicano civil rights movement. Many in this generation were political activists, creating posters, graphics, and murals in the monumental tradition of Diego Rivera. Others convey Chicano experience through scenes of daily life in the barrio, expressive portraiture, and surrealist-influenced dreamscapes with a keen psychological edge.

Collector's Statement
The paintings herein are whole, entire and complete unto themselves. There is great power in clarity, and the featured artists have distilled the essence of their individual visions into a format that speaks clearly the message that they want to convey … in other words “size doesn’t matter” – it’s what’s inside the frame that counts.

There is something about the intimacy of a small painting that draws you in and implants itself is the warmth of your memory. For the collector, the small paintings are the ones that remain with them throughout their lives. They are the paintings that are always in their bedrooms or their kitchens or whatever room in which they spend the most time. The owners know every square inch of these paintings and can almost see them in the dark.

In Chicanitas, several young artists are getting their first national exposure. These paintings are their calling cards and they speak with eloquence, style, and clarity. Enjoy!

~ Cheech Marin, Malibu, California, 2011

Finishing Touches Being Put on Cheech and Chong Animation Movie

The Cheech and Chong Animation Movie may actually see the light of day.  Tommy Chong revealed that he and Cheech have finished recording a weed song for the film this past week.

This film was created using entirely of old Cheech and Chong bits to create a story.  Not really sure how that's possible.

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong each received an upfront payment of $100k for this film.

Tommy Chong Remembers Gaye Delorme

The legendary guitarist, Gaye Delorme, passed away on June 24th after years of declining health. Gaye wrote Earache My Eye and numerous other Cheech and Chong songs and sketches.

The Vancouver Sun interviewed Tommy Chong about his memories of Gaye.
“When I met Gaye, I had just started the Cityworks Improv Company at the Shanghai Junk [nightclub in Chinatown]. It was like fate, the universe put us together. Gaye was really part of the original cast. He was a writer for the comedy, he actually wrote the first bit we ever did.

He was also responsible for getting me out of music,” laughs Chong, who played guitar with soul greats Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers in the '60s. “After I heard him play guitar, I thought well I’d better concentrate on the comedy, because I’ll never be able to play guitar as good as he does.”

During the interview from his home in California, Tommy Chong discusses how Earache My Eye was written. Chong's version of the story constantly changes, similar to the way explanation of how 'Dave' was written constantly changes.

In a 2008 interview with Vue Weekly, Gaye says he and Cheech wrote Earache My Eye.  Tommy was going to play guitar, but the guitar went missing.  Gaye wound up writing the infamous Earache riff.  Tommy got everyone in the studio, except Gaye, completely stoned.  Tommy Chong re-recorded the song with Cheech so he could claim it was his own.  Tommy frequently claims he wrote the song....which he did not.

There will be a tribute to Gaye Delorme this Sunday from 5-9PM at the Yale Hotel in Vancouver.  Tommy Chong will not be attending.

We're Glad Lopez Tonight was Canceled

George Lopez' show, Lopez Tonight, has been canceled by TBS. He's a funny guy and sure, he had Cheech and Tommy on there multiple times.

However, when the George Lopez show was on the air, his publicist emailed us looking for free Cheech and Chong merchandise. We said we would if the merchandise would be featured on the show. His publicist agreed.

We sent him tons of free merchandise. The items were never featured on the show. His publicist denied he made such a promise. I forwarded him the emails. He stopped denying it, but he implied that his company also represented Cheech and implied he'd cut off my access to Cheech information.

Years later, George Lopez' wife gives him a kidney and then they get divorced.  Classic!

Cheech and Chong Show at Humphrey's Canceled

Cheech and Chong's August 5th show at Humphrey's in San Diego has been canceled.  Tommy says he doesn't know why.  It's either because of poor ticket sales or because Cheech has a television show or movie to work on.

Cheech and Chong Reunion Script is Finished

Tommy Chong has announced that he's finished writing the Cheech and Chong reunion script.  This is not to be confused with the script Tommy's daughters wrote, nor the script Chong wrote when he and Cheech still weren't speaking.

New Line Cinema wanted to do a Cheech and Chong film, but the canceled the project because...Tommy was busted by the Feds and served nine months...and their Director, Larry Charles, left the project to do Borat.

The film probably won't see the light of day.  Cheech and Chong don't have a film studio at this point.  Plus, Cheech is working full-time on a sitcom with Rob Schneider.  The show will debut this January on Fox-TV.

Pee-Wee Herman Talks About Working with Cheech and Chong

Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) was at Comic-Con this week talking about his new film.  The film, which hasn't actually began filming yet, is a road trip film and is being produced by Judd Apatow.

During the Q&A session, he was asked what it was like being in two Cheech and Chong films (Next Movie and Nice Dreams).  He said Nice Dreams was filmed almost entirely in a mansion.  This same mansion is now owned by Johnny Depp.  Reubens says he doesn't remember much about working with Cheech and Chong...just that they hired a lot of improv actors because they didn't have a script.

SAN BERNARDINO: California Theatre brings back comedy fest

The LOL Comedy Festival is returning to the California Theatre of the Performing Arts to tape more specials for the Showtime cable network.

It will bring six headliners to downtown San Bernardino in four evenings, Aug. 25-28.
They are sitcom star Anthony Clark ("Yes, Dear"), Jeff Dye, Jay Mohr, Tommy Chong, Rita Rudner and Willie Barcena, who participated in the 2010 LOL festival at the California Theatre. The DVD of that concert will be released this month.

The 2011 concerts are posted on the California Theatre website but were not yet on sale at at press time.

The website did not post show times. But according to the event description there will be free entertainment outside the theater, as there was last summer.
The theater coordinated on the street event with the city and other San Bernardino agencies as a line-free way of loading audiences into the theater for the 2010 LOL festival. There were two tapings on July 30 and three on July 31.

The turnout around the theater on July 31 was comparable to the Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous, Joseph Hansen of the California Theatre said at the time. Emil Marzullo, executive director of the San Bernardino Economic Development Agency, described the crowd control as "flawless."

The 2010 event featured nearly two dozen comics, including Tom Arnold, Caroline Rhea, Jon Lovitz and Louie Anderson. More names are yet to be announced for 2011.
The LOL Comedy Festival is only one recent addition to the California Theatre schedule.

California Theatre
LOL Comedy Festival: Aug. 25-28
'Forever Tango': 8 p.m. Aug. 13, $38.50-$77.50
'Rock of Ages': $50-$77.50 plus fees.
Where: 562 W. Fourth St., San Bernardino

Tommy Chong's Intense Argument with Drug Czar

Tommy Chong was on CNN's The Arena.  Tommy is pushing Obama issue an executive order rescheduling marijuana from a Schedule 1 to a Schedule 2 drug.

Paul Chabot, a former White House senior advisor of the Office of National Drug Control Policy and founder of the Coalition for a Drug Free California, was also on the show.

Chabot, of course, disagrees with Tommy...and so the argument ensued.

 "All President Obama has to do is sign an executive order rescheduling marijuana from Schedule 1, which says it has no medical use whatsoever, to a Schedule 2, which would allow it to be sold by prescription only. Then we'd be all done," Chong said.

Winner of this argument=Tommy Chong.

Breaking News...Music Legend Gaye Delorme Dies on Stage

Sorry for the bad news folks.  Music legend, Gaye Delorme, died of a heart attack Thursday night at the young age of 64.  He was performing a soundcheck for a show in Calgary, Canada when it happened.

Gaye wrote the legendary guitar riff for Earache My Eye which appeared in Up in Smoke and on Cheech and Chong's Wedding Album.  It sold over 14 million copies.  He also wrote 'Me and My Old Lady' and 'Chilly Winds' from the film Things Are Tough All Over, as well as wrote other skits.  He also played on the soundtrack to Next Movie soundtrack.

Gaye was a huge supporter of this site in it's legal troubles with Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong.  He often spoke of similar issues working with the duo.  He felt he was never given proper credit for his work with Cheech and Chong.

In a 2008 interview with Vue Weekly, Gaye says he and Cheech wrote Earache My Eye.  Tommy was going to play guitar, but the guitar went missing.  Gaye wound up writing the infamous Earache riff.  Tommy got everyone in the studio, except Gaye, completely stoned.  Tommy Chong re-recorded the song with Cheech so he could claim it was his own.  Tommy frequently claims he wrote the song....which he did not.

He's worked with a number of other musicians including kd Lang (co-produced her first album) and David Foster.  Country fans may know him best from his dirty song 'The Rodeo Song.'

His music was a mosaic of different styles.  In a 2008 interview with The Journal, Gaye describes his guitar playing as "swamp style." His true passion was flamenco guitar.

His years of drug and alcohol abuse caused a number of health issues.  Gaye developed diabetes and eventually became blind, but this didn't stop him from performing.

There was a benefit for him back in January 2008 because he had suffered a number of injuries from a mugging.

He was a brilliant man and a really nice guy.

“When you’re inspired you really play a different way, but when you start thinking like, ‘Oh yeah, people will really go for this,’ it just dies.”

Bio form Gaye's official website...
Internationally renowned guitarist, vocalist and tunesmith, Gaye Delorme is one of the most recorded aural artists on the North American music scene today.  This Grammy-nominated songwriter worked for many years scoring films for Columbia Pictures and recently returned to Canada to embrace his original love of live performance.

Delorme possesses a musical range unparalleled - from gut wrenching blues to improvisational jazz-influenced experimentation to stunning flamenco styling.  He has mapped the existing musical territory and beyond.  He brings his wide-ranging musical influences, from the country stylings of Chet Atkins and Doc Watson to the Brazilian Jobim, into his production work as well.  Gaye has produced such Canadian superstars as k.d. Lang and Jann Arden and co-produced several artists in Los Angeles with critically acclaimed composer David Foster.  For the last 10 years Gaye has appeared as signature performer at the Edmonton Folk Festival where he's hosted the International Guitar Stage.  His own studio work has brought forth five fantastic albums: the "Blue Wave Sessions", a work much compared with Dire Straight's Mark Knopfler; "Borderline", a country rock innovation; "Beautiful Guitar" an international musical exploration of original compositions for Spanish guitar; "Rodeo Songs", some kickin' country comedy crafted around Gaye's groundbreaking hit; and his latest, a compilation of "Gaye's Best".

Unable to Send Cheech & Chong Orders to Canada

Due to the ongoing strike of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, USPS is no longer shipping orders to Canada.  In other words, we can't ship to Canada until this strike is over.

A strike in Europe is not too far behind and the United States Postal Service only has three months of cash before it goes bankrupt.

This is all part of the globalist's plan for a New World Order.  One government.  One world currency.  The banks will own everything.  Your taxes will go directly to the banks as interest on the debt the banks created.

This is what's going on in Greece right now.  The banks bankrupted Greece by putting their money in bad investments (derivatives).  Now, the banks (Goldman, JP Morgan, etc) are accepting Greece assets as payments....highways, stadiums, everything will be owned by the banks.

The globalists have been planning this for years at the Bilderberg meetings.  In fact, there was just a Bilderberg meeting in Switzerland last week.  Washington is now run by bank executives.  This is how they received the huge bailout.  Most of the bailout money went to overseas banks, including Libya.

In case you didn't know, here are the globalists that attended the Bilderberg meeting this year.Note: It's illegal for government officials to make back room deals with other countries.  This is why Hillary Clinton was fined for attending the Bilderberg meeting in Virginia a few years ago.

This data will be used to launch a false flag.  There will be a major computer hacking incident which will get Congress to allow an internet kill switch. The legislation has already been written.  It allows the government to shut down any site that speaks out against the government. Google also took credit for the uprising in Egypt.  They planted articles on Google encouraging the overthrow.

On a related topic, Obama is doing what many leaders do when their economy crashing, create a war(s).  For instance, Hitler wanted WWII because Germany's economy was a mess.

Obama and the other Globalists are WWIII.  I'm not joking.  This is World War Three.

Here are the wars we're in right now...
Afghanistan - Needed to run gas pipeline to Turkey. Also, some good mineral deposits.
Iraq - Oil and allowed Dick Cheney's company, Haliburton to get trillions in no-compete contracts.
Egypt - War was started by Al Quaida (CIA-backed rebels). The globalists wanted a new head of Egypt so they got rid of Mubarek.
Libya - We've been there for over six months, planting sensors so the NATO missiles know their target. The US and Europe are there because Ghadaffi nationalized Libya's oil.  In other words, they kicked the European oil companies out of Libya (BP, etc).  The oil companies were pissed off.  Europe gets their oil from Libya.  The US doesn't, but Obama promised the oil companies he'd do this for them.  Libya's citizens are tribal and actually like Ghadaffi.  They get a free education (including PHD), $20k as a wedding gift, each citizen gets a few thousand dollars per year in oil profit sharing, he built the world's biggest aqueduct which the banks want to own and charge Libyan citizens for.
Pakistan - The Bin Ladin being captured and killed story was bogus. He was a CIA operative whose code name was Tim Osman. There are tons of photos of George Bush, Sr with Bin Ladin when Bush was still in the CIA. 
Osama died in early 2001 of kidney failure, diabetes, marfan syndrome and low blood pressure.  No dialysis equipment was found at the Pakistan compound, neighbors said that structure had been unoccupied for years, first Obama said Osama put up a fight, then he said he used his wife as a shield, then he said his wife wasn't there, then he said the cameras were off when Seal Team Six went in there, then he said they were watching the entire event via the cameras on their helmets, then Hillary said the photo of Obama, Hillary, etc watching the capture really wasn't them watching the capture, she said she was covering her mouth because she was sick, not excited by what she was seeing on the tv. Bin Ladin DNA tests came back in less than one week, DNA tests take over six weeks, Obama said they buried him at sea because that's Muslim tradition.  In actuality, Muslim religion says the body must be buried facing Mecca.  

Osama Bin Ladin's death was always going to be George Bush, Jr's 'ace in the hole.'  He was going to announce his capture if he needed additional votes to get re-elected.  Instead, Obama used it to increase his ratings and use it as an excuse to invade Pakistan.

The plan is to take over the middle east and northern Africa.
