President Bush Announces North American Summit In New Orleans

 

A triumphant President Bush (framed by two Roman fasces, symbolic of Fascism), delivers the final State of the Union address of his presidency to a joint session of Congress at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington January 28, 2008 as Vice President Dick Cheney (2nd L) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (R) applaud.

President Bush (this year, unlike last year) mentioned the Gulf Coast and New Orleans during his final State of the Union Speech.

Bush said, “Tonight the armies of compassion continue the march to a new day in the Gulf Coast. America honors the strength and resilience of the people of this region. We reaffirm our pledge to help them build stronger and better than before. And tonight I am pleased to announce that in April we will host this year’s North American Summit of Canada, Mexico, and the United States in the great city of New Orleans.

President Bush initially made that pledge in Jackson Square in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  During his speech, the President also announced the upcoming Summit in New Orleans.

In response, Louisiana Recovery Authority (LRA) Chairman Dr. Norman C. Francis issued the following statement regarding President George W. Bush’s announcement: “This is an historic time for our city and state, a time of unprecedented hope and confidence in Louisiana’s recovery. Tonight’s announcement certainly sends that message, and underscores the fact that Louisiana is once again open for business.

“While much remains to be done, Louisiana has made significant recovery progress since the 2005 storms. Federal recovery funds are flowing, neighborhoods are re-awakening and the sound of hammers and construction can be heard throughout the most impacted areas of South Louisiana. Over the last two years, New Orleans has also played host to many large gatherings, conventions, music festivals and major sporting events since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, including this year’s BCS National Championship game, which brought tens of thousands of visitors to the Crescent City.

“I applaud President Bush for his commitment to the people of New Orleans and Louisiana. His pledge and support of federal dollars ensure that Louisiana’s recovery will be successful. We are most grateful for this opportunity to highlight both our progress and our remaining needs to the nation and world.”

  1. Yeah he smirked throughout his entire spiel like: “If they only knew what’s really coming…”

  2. How true. Though some Americans know the real purpose of this, some now are already talking and organizing to converge in New Orleans and show their undying support for their country by resisting the powers that be. It would be be a great time to join together and publicly display our feelings to this “North American Union” and subject his procession, once again, to “eggs over my hammy” and cloned meat products which he endoreses, or allows, so much. Personally, I prefer bricks, no finger prints and more “staying” power. Nothing says look at what you’ve done to my country than a broken windshield.

  3. The sad thing about a broken window is that our tax dollars replace it. They get us coming and going. Is it a surprise? The people of this country are clueless and prefer to stay that way, all you have to do is watch Ron Paul’s numbers. These idiots will vote for anyone the media tells them to, open voting fraud without any repercussions, give me a break. God is going to punnish this country and we deserve it! What people dont think about is how the crashing economy is forcing foreclosures in which even the banks don’t want the house, so the house goes empty, the bank sells off the copper pipes etc. I recently read how a govt official said “It’s good that all of these homes are going empty and unclaimed by the buyer or the bank, it makes it much easier for the govt to buy up or take the land for our own uses”, won’t this be a big help when they want to finish their NAFTA highway system? Here in Colorado, they are actively pushing and using underhanded tactics to force farmers and ranchers to sell. First they call the land “blighted” to reduce the value and then they force an unfair offer on the owner using every police, political, and economic tool they have. One rancher was offered $40,000 for 2500 acres of land with a water supply of ponds and a stream, of which the owner paid $110,000 in 1975 without any of the developements that are now on the property. These people are crooks and a threat to the security of this country, prison is too good for them.

  4. Or the ranchers get outbid by the mega-rich globalists like Ted Turner and others who make the land available to the UN and other international interests.
