    Two years ago during the G-20 Summit, a spokesman for Russian president Vladimir Putin reportedly said that Britain was a “small island no one listens to.” British Prime Minister David Cameron accepted the official line from the Russians that such remarks were not made, but nevertheless responded with a robust defense of the United Kingdom. “Britain may be a small island”, he said, “but I would challenge anyone to find a country with a prouder history, a bigger heart, or greater resilience.” He focused on this small island doing its bit in being resolute throughout World War II in the...

    Before leaving for home after the Group of 20 summit, President Barack Obama sat down with Russian civil society activists on Friday evening to assure them that he would keep pressing Moscow to respect human rights, some of the activists said. But Obama also explained to them why this wasn't always possible. The meeting was held several hours after two dozen of gay activists rallied in St. Petersburg to protest Russia's new law banning gay propaganda, which prompted some activists to call for the boycott of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. Igor Kochetkov, the head of LGBT Network, who...

    World leaders arrived Thursday for a dinner hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin where they would discuss the crisis in Syria, with US President Barack Obama showing up alone and well after the main group. The main group of leaders led by Putin arrived together at the historic Peterhof palace outside Saint Petersburg, with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande seen talking animatedly at the back of the pack. But Obama was nowhere to be seen and only arrived at the palace a good half an hour after the rest.

    President Obama, arriving Thursday in Russia, anticipated a lively two-day G20 summit, during which he’ll reprise his lobbying for international airstrikes against Syria with President Vladimir Putin, an ally of the Assad regime, as well as other world leaders. Russia said it compiled a report asserting that Syrian rebels were behind a chemical weapons attack in March near Aleppo, according to the McClatchy news service. The 100-page report, which Russia said it delivered to the United Nations in July, runs counter to U.S. claims that the regime of Bashar al-Assad has been behind chemical attacks in Syria, including a mass...

    President Barack Obama was intent on getting the upper hand as he greeted Russia's Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit on Thursday, according to body language experts who watched the frosty exchange. From a jacket-buttoning pause to a hard-pumping handshake, Obama displayed tell-tale signs of dominance after he alit from a limo in front of St. Petersburg's Konstantin Palace, where Putin waited to meet him, communication experts said. There was no outright hostility, but the chill between the two world leaders — at loggerheads over NSA leaker Edward Snowden and a strike against Syria — was evident in clenched-jaw smiles...

    "Izvestia" reported on September 4 that the organizers of the G20 summit in Saint Petersburg have rewritten the seating plan with the Latin instead of Cyrillic alphabet to ensure that Putin and Obama are not placed near each other. The presidents of Russia (Rossiya in Russian) and the United States (SShA) would have been almost side-by-side, separated only by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, if the seating plan had been written in the host country’s language. In English, however, Russia and the United States’ place names would be separated by South Africa, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Turkey, and the...

Yonhap news agency quoted government sources as saying the exercise involving a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier has been postponed to avoid tensions on the Korean peninsula during the upcoming G20 summit in Seoul. There was no official confirmation of the reports. The Chinese government has fiercely opposed the deployment of the U.S. aircraft carrier George Washington in the regional waters.

This is downtown Toronto — this last weekend of June. “It could be lots of fun, it could be downright miserable,” said Sgt.

    Gross Domestic Happiness? Why the French want to redefine economic growth. French President Nicolas Sarkozy recently said he wanted the nations of the world to stop using GDP, or gross domestic product, as the main measure of their economic performance. He wants them instead to work up another metric that takes into account not only economic production but such things as environmental quality and even time not spent in traffic—a sort of gross national satisfaction index. France has excellent reason to suppress GDP statistics. Since 1982, among developed nations, France has been a clear laggard in GDP growth. Mr. Domitrovic...

    More than 1,000 police officers were hired from precincts throughout the U.S. and sworn in prior to this weeks G-20 summit held in Pittsburgh. As expected, the presence of such a large contingency of officers was needed as an estimated 2,000 left-wing radicals descended on the city in protest of capitalism. Protesters clad in masks and in some cases armed erupted into violence breaking windows in restaurants, a bank and a local BMW dealership. Police were forced to respond to the violence by using tear-gas, firing bean bags and setting off high frequency sounds systems designed to disperse the mob...

    PITTSBURGH — Police fired canisters of pepper spray and smoke at marchers protesting the Group of 20 summit Thursday after anarchists responded to calls to disperse by rolling trash bins and throwing rocks. The afternoon march turned chaotic at just about the time that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrived for a meeting with leaders of the world's major economies. The clashes began after hundreds of protesters, many advocating against capitalism, tried to march from an outlying neighborhood toward the convention center where the summit is being held. The protesters banged on drums and chanted "Ain't no...

    The recent G20 summit -- a much expanded platform from the traditional and exclusive G7 and G8 -- brought together a disparate, and somewhat desperate, group of world leaders from across the political divide. They gathered after realising that they could no longer afford to operate within the constraints of ideological straitjackets, economic orthodoxy and in a business-as-usual mode in the face of the global financial meltdown, which has left a bloodbath of banking failure, business collapse and job losses. The meltdown had to be addressed urgently or else it would result in a world economic depression. So they had...

    It is hard to imagine a bigger slight to the memory of the more than 100,000 American soldiers who died liberating Europe than the image of a U.S. president attacking the “arrogance” of his own country on French soil. President Obama’s speech last week ahead of the NATO summit in Strasbourg, barely 500 miles from the beaches of Normandy, marked a low point in presidential speechmaking on foreign policy. The largely French and German town hall audience cheered like ancient Romans in a packed Coliseum. This time, however, it was not Christians being fed to the lions but the symbolism...

    AT the recent meeting of G-20 nations in Lon don, officials from many nations agreed on one thing -- that the United States is to blame for the world recession. President Obama agreed, speaking in Strasbourg of "the reckless speculation of bankers that has now fueled a global economic downturn." One problem with this blame-game is that last year's recession was much deeper in many European and Asian countries than it was in the United States. By the fourth quarter of 2008, as the nearby table shows, real US gross domestic product was just 0.8 percent smaller than it had...

    In a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate, President Obama bowed to Saudi King Abdullah at the Group of 20 summit in London last week. Mr. Obama later said in Strasbourg, France, "We have to change our behavior in showing the Muslim world greater respect." Symbolism is important in world affairs. By bending over to show greater respect to Islam, the U.S. president belittled the power and independence of the United States. The bow was an extraordinary protocol violation. Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king's subjects, not his peer. There is no precedent for...

Workers, land, steel, fuel, and other resources in the United States that were once used to make, say, shoes and television sets, are today used to design Web sites, to erect cellphone towers, to carry out research in pharmaceutical labs, to perform Lasik surgery, and to do countless other jobs that wouldn't exist if trade were less open.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: President Obama with a joint press conference this morning with Angela Merkel, she is perhaps unique on the world stage among all the European Union leaders in that she is not spellbound and she's not rendered a little high school cheerleader when Obama comes to town. A story here from Baden-Baden Germany: "Last time Barack Obama came to Germany, he was campaigning for the White House, met Angela Merkel, and was treated like a rock star by hundreds of thousands of people in Berlin. But today there's an undercurrent, however slight, of resentment against the United States...

    Obama: “In America there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.” Krauthammer: “It’s hard to appreciate an entity’s leading role in the world when it’s been sucking on your tit for 60 years as Europe has.” “I think what he did, in order to gain the adoration of the crowds, he denigrated his country in a way that I think is disgraceful.

    The Washington Post has yet to run a story on President Obama's bow to the King of Saudi Arabia. The Post is not alone. It is a story that has the status of a great unmentionable among the MSM and apparently even on FOX News.

    I doubt there's ever been anyone dumber on TV than this misguided liberal schmuck/Allan Colmes. He said it today on Fox News at around 12:30 PM ET, so there's no link available (yet?).
  • G20: A 'new world order' is simply fantasy

    Those who thought that Dr Goebbels came to an end on a stretch of waste ground in Berlin in 1945 have been forced to think again. The piece of theatre that concluded in London on Thursday was one of the great confidence tricks of our lifetimes. Just getting the 20 most important heads of government on the planet together in one place and not being unpleasant about each other was, we must concede, something of an achievement. But it won't make a blind bit of difference to the world's economy. Nor, I imagine, will it have any effect on the...

    Footage has emerged of the Queen appearing to express mild irritation at Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for being too noisy. The incident took place as the Queen posed with world leaders from the G20 summit in the traditional "family" photograph at Buckingham Palace. Mr Berlusconi then shouted "Mr Obama", prompting Her Majesty to turn around in mock frustration at the noise. Buckingham Palace have denied that any offence was taken by the Queen. The footage has been placed on the YouTube website and has quickly proved to be a popular clip. 'Loud and jolly' A palace spokeswoman said the...
  • G20: Advantage Nicolas Sarkozy vs Les Anglo-Saxons? (Socialism Oui, Capitalism No!)

    G20: Advantage Nicolas Sarkozy vs Les Anglo-Saxons? Posted By: Henry Samuel at Apr 3, 2009 at 13:43:39 "A new world is emerging before our eyes," wrote Le Monde in breathless tones in its editorial dated today. "A world less Anglo-Saxon." "The irony is that it is in Washington (in November 2008) and in London that the ultraliberal bracket opened 20 years ago by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher is now closing." This is certainly the message that Nicolas Sarkozy is bringing home with him, after a crafty and, it has to be said, effective, bit of political theatre. First we...
