.................declining pilgrimages in all parts of the World.

Demand of the time: Smart non-violent politics.
The Greatness of the West: 1 Pre-meditated murderer of 80 lives still alive in the West and 8 needy thieves, earning not enough as foreign workers in a richest Country to became accidental killers and die in unimaginable brutal ways in the East.

Recently, one Norwegian killer in a pre-planned way killed 80 and probably won’t receive even suspended death penalty in the World Class generous atmosphere of the Western Justice System and in Super rich: Saudi Arabia, 8 poor foreign workers from Bangladesh (with insufficient wages (e.g. US$ 5 to $10 a day for 12 hours of hard laboring job) have been murdered openly by autocratic order of a non-benevolent king in this modern, globally awakened time: in a primitive, brutal, barbarian style as a punishment for accidental killing of one!

If, it is not for sharing profiteering fortune of artificially raised oil-price money, then, non-violent removal of only a few guys in business of politics of the West would also force the brutal ruler-ships to change their inhuman policies of the old or expedite the removals of the ‘Out of date’: opportunist guys’ or king’s businesses of terrorism for it’s own comfort to remain in the power vacuum, historically unnoticed by the majority of the then old-world and not ever claimed by wise guys like evolved most intelligent men of this 21st Century Generation.

The evidences of these types of heinous acts (Just like Assad’s of Syria; for personal enjoyment of hereditary power, in old styled form of politics, to suppress awareness of true justice by brutal treatments for creating fear in isolated portion of the collective global Public) that are currently taking place in this rapidly growing digital communication technology and time are now invincible and not subject to procedural destruction anymore, therefore, to the surprise of the perpetrators, the painful memories shall never be wiped out! (All the credits, eternally go to the neutral wise-understanding of the region-less Creator of Cosmos).

The Bangladeshi heads in power, just like money hungry mongers of Pakistan, India, Syria, Bahrain, Nigeria, Somalia, Iran, North Korea, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela etc. neither have enough intelligence (because they are elected to represent ignorance of majority) nor any idea about how to join the emerging new body of honest politicians in the West for help create a one standard Global justice system for aiding Humanity’s positive side for a possible new peaceful world where…..........

Obama and Bush do know a lot about dishonesty and murder !!

Obama knows Wachovia Bank laundered $378 billion for murderous Mexican Drug cartels, and no one was prosecuted !!

B of A, American Express Bank and Western Union also laundered drug money and no one was prosecuted.

AIG, JP Morgan Chase, MetLife, Prudential, Unum, rigged huge bids and no one was prosected, and they have all received multiple Non Prosection agreements for multiple crimes !!

Goldman Sachs and many mortgage companies have received Non Prosecution agreements too !!

Three Professor’s wrote the following quotes about massive health care crimes the F.B.I., DOJ and DOL are protecting :

This quote was written by Joseph Belth, Professor Emeritus at Indiana University :

“They’ve turned Erisa on its head,”  “It was supposed to protect employees, and it’s being used to protect insurers.”

“The most important federal insurance regulation of the past generation is ERISA,” says Tom Baker, deputy dean of the University of Pennsylvania Law School in Philadelphia. “If ever a law backfired for the public, ERISA is the perfect example.”

John Marshall Law School Professor Mark Debofsky wrote:

“empirical evidence is now available that shows insurers operating under ERISA have systematically engaged in the wrongful denial of claims. Cases of abusive benefit denials involving other disability insurers abound.”

Obama, Bush and their DOL and DOJ have also protected insurance companies that are committing identical crimes in five different types of insurance.

ProPublica wrote this about DBA War Zone insurance :

Labor officials can recommend cases for prosecution to the Justice Department–but have only done so once in the past two decades, according to Labor officials.”

“CNA withheld portions of the investigators’ findings when it submitted the claims to the Labor Department, court records show.”

Here’s proof insurance companies are removing medical records in two more types of insurance :

These quotes were written by the Judges from the 6th Circuit in the case of Wanda Glenn verses Metlife :

“This inappropriately selective consideration of Glenn’s medical record was compounded by the fact that the occupational skills analyst and the independent medical consultant were apparently not provided with full information from Dr. Patel on which to base their conclusions.”

WFAA-TV wrote this about Workers Comp claims :

“Some insurance companies send peer review doctors medical files “stripped” of records important to the possible approval of workers’ comp claims.”

WFAA - TV also wrote :

“a remarkable number of Texans committed suicide because they could no longer endure the pain caused by their injuries and they had been repeatedly turned down for worker’s comp care.”

In the case of Brenda Zanny, U.S. District Judge Richard Enslen wrote :

“Metlife and its henchmen should appreciate that such conduct may itself precipitate the suicide death of a person who has placed implicit trust in their organization. This record is an open indictment of MetLife’s practices and treatment of the mentally-ill and long-term disability benefits.”

In the case of Wright verses Metlife U.S. Magistrate Judge Jennifer Guerm wrote these quotes :

“MetLife relied on clearly erroneous findings of fact in making its benefit determination. MetLife’s review of Plaintiff’s appeal consistently omitted or misrepresented relevant information in several ways. On October 18, 2004, Dr. Barnett wrote a letter to MetLife stating:

“I am gravely disturbed by your misrepresentation of the facts with regard to my discussion with your independent physician consultant and your lack of due diligence in collecting further medical information regarding Mr. Wright’s health condition. Indeed, Mr. Wright has ongoing cardiac disease including ischemia and loss of function due to previous myocardial infarctions.”

U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner won the Thurgood Marshall Award of the American Bar Association in 2008.

Here are three important quotes Judge Gertner wrote about Metlife:

“It misquoted Whitehouse’s doctors and cherry-picked or took out of context statements made. The denials continued to press factual inaccuracies even after being informed of the errors.”

“Perhaps most egregious of all, it misquotes Dr. Bhan as stating that Whitehouse “[was] able to function” AR 116 when, in fact, he said “she was not able to function.”

That is about one percent of the evidence that has been reviewed by Obama’s DOL and DOJ Directors. They are also very aware that patients can die during the years it takes their case to get to Court and be resolved.

Obama and Bush’s DOJ and DOL will not lift one finger to help. They cannot be trusted in anything they do !!!!!!!!!!!

Never forget Obama knows Wachovia Bank laundered $378 billion for murderous Mexican Drug cartels, and no one was prosecuted !!

The thing is this, you cant count any Government jobs….All it takes to creat a govenment job is money. You dont even have to have a need for the job, just taxes provided by “Non” government workers. See the government doesnt make money, they collect it. All Government jobs are bought and paid for by non government workers, and the taxes paid back from government workers came from the hands of the government in the first place…..Sooooooo… many jobs did Obama create without Tax payers buying them?

G 20 meetings, job plans etc. will be unfruitful and waste of time unless ‘in order just to compete with the East in deficit free trade condition’, we start to abolishing trade Unions ASAP and let less-educated lower middle class and the immgrant cheap labor @ minimum wages work in the oil sand,fields, aircraft, machinary, tools etc. factories, constructions sector etc..
The boom of China, India, Brazil etc. will be confined in their own homeland only.
No Union, Minimum wages and Balanced trades are must but the main problem is these drastic changes are not good for elections matters of G 20 leaders.
