The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), a division of Johns Hopkins University based in Washington, D.C., is one of the world's leading graduate schools devoted to the study of international affairs, economics, diplomacy, and policy research and education.
The SAIS main campus is located on Massachusetts Avenue's Embassy Row, just off Dupont Circle and across from the Brookings Institution and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and next to the Center for Global Development and the Peterson Institute
ALL OF THESE INSTITUTIONS ARE FREE-MARKET GLOBALIZATION POLICY GROUPS. THEY HAVE FORMULATED THE POLICIES THAT CREATED THIRD WAY POLITICS AND CREATED THE MESS WE HAVE TODAY. THEY WORK FOR/ARE THE 1%. THEIR MISSION IS GLOBAL EXPANSION OF US (THEIR) INTERESTS. THEY ARE THE REASON THE US IS NO LONGER APART OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT. LET'S LOOK AT HOW THE WORLD MAY SEE THIS MISSION:
1) DECLARING THAT THE US WANTS TO RECRUIT THE 'BEST OF THE BEST' IN THE WORLD OR ' WE AIM TO TAKE ALL YOUR FUTURE BUSINESS/COMMUNITY LEADERS'.
2) WORKING TO BRING GRATEFUL IMMIGRANTS TO LABOR AS HEALTH CARE AND EDUCATION WORKERS RATHER THAN SERVE IN THAT CAPACITY IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES. WE DO IT BECAUSE OF THE CHEAP LABOR.....WE WOULDN'T WANT TO RAISE WAGES SO OUR OWN PEOPLE WILL DO THE WORK.
3) BUYING ALL THE LAND GLOBALLY ASSOCIATED WITH FUTURE COMMODITIES SO AS TO CONTROL THE MARKET/SUPPLY......FOOD, WATER, FUEL, RAW MATERIALS....WHY ARE WE EXPORTING ALL THIS? PROFIT
4) VIOLATE ALL INTERNATIONAL LAWS REGARDING SOVEREIGNTY AND BUSINESS LAW BY DRONE SURVEILLANCE/KILLINGS AND MASSIVE FINANCIAL FRAUD SUCKING WORLD'S MONEY TO THE RICH.
NOW, ALL OF THIS POLICY BENEFITS THE 1%.....NOT YOU AND I. WHAT IT DOES FOR YOU AND I IS PLACES US AT THREAT OF ATTACK AND A FUTURE OF WARS AND CONFLICT. ADD TO THAT THE FACT THAT GLOBALIZATION WILL STALL AND CREATE A GREATER ECONOMIC COLLAPSE THEN 2008 TO OUR DETRIMENT AND THE 1% BENEFIT, AND YOU HAVE VERY DANGEROUS, IDIOTIC, SOCIOPATHIC POLICY MAKING.
THIS IS THE JOB OF THE INSTITUTIONS LISTED ABOVE!
REMEMBER, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS GO BACK TO A STRONG DOMESTIC ECONOMY FUELED BY INCOME EQUITY AND A STRONG MIDDLE-CLASS AND SAFETY NET THAT MAKES CONSUMERS OF DOMESTIC WORKERS, GIVING CORPORATIONS MILLIONS AND NOT BILLIONS IN PROFITS...... AND WE WOULD NOT BE AT THIS POINT. WE DO NOT NEED TO BE THE SUPERPOWER THAT EVERYONE HATES. WE WERE ADMIRED FOR DECADES AS THE FORCE FOR GOOD. THAT IS NO LONGER THE CASE!
VOTE YOUR INCUMBENT OUT OF OFFICE!!!
EACH REGION OF THE COUNTRY HAS ITS OWN INSTITUTIONS WORKING THIS ELITE TRANSITION.
I'M GOING TO PICK ON JOHNS HOPKINS BECAUSE THEY ARE THE 1% IN MY HOME STATE OF MARYLAND AND ARE DEEPLY INVOLVED IN ALL THE ISSUES I SPEAK AGAINST. THE STUDENTS COMING THROUGH ARE NOT BAD, THEY ARE FOLLOWING A COURSE THEY SEE ATTRACTIVE. HOPKINS IS BEHIND GROWING US IMMIGRANT WORKFORCE....BEHIND HOMELAND SECURITY'S GROWTH TO 'SECRET POLICE' STATUS.....BEHIND GLOBAL MOVEMENT AND PROTECTION OF WEALTH.....BEHIND ELITE SCHOOLS FILLING ALL PUBLIC/ORGANIZATIONAL POSITIONS. LOCALLY, IN BALTIMORE, THEY HAVE USURPED ALL PUBLIC FUNCTIONS. THEY DO IT FOR CONTROL AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH STRENGTHENED DEMOCRACY.
BELOW YOU SEE HOPKINS IS TIGHT WITH THE POLICY-MAKERS WE LOVE TO HATE......THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND TIMOTHY GEITHNER BEING THE PINNACLE OF THE CRIMINAL ELEMENTS IN THIS MASSIVE MORTGAGE FRAUD AND THE SOURCE FOR GUIDING THE FINANCIAL SECTOR THROUGH THEIR OWN CRIMINAL DEEDS WITH A PROFIT AND NO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. IT IS A FACT THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NO LONGER HAVE FAITH IN THEIR GOVERNMENT LARGELY BECAUSE OF THE ACTS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE, GREENSPAN AND BERNANKE, AND TIMOTHY GEITHNER AS WELL AS ERIC HOLDER AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. THEY ARE INFAMOUS.
AS COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER (IT'S LIKE HAVING GAMBLING MAGNET, CORDISH ON YOUR LACROSSE MUSEUM) GEITHNER PAINTS A PICTURE OF PATRIOTISM OF A PROCESS WE ALL KNOW TO HAVE BEEN PLANNED AND MANUFACTURED FROM THE START. INTERESTINGLY HE SPEAKS OF OBAMA'S OPPORTUNITY TO NATIONALIZE THE BANKS WHICH WOULD HAVE PLACED THE COUNTRY ON A TRAJECTORY BEST FOR THE 95%.....RATHER HE CHOSE THE 1%.

Remarks by Secretary Tim Geithner at the Commencement Ceremony for the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies
I came to SAIS in September 1983, right out of college. I was eager, impatient to learn the craft of governing, and there was, and there is still, no better place to do that.
It was a tough few months at the beginning. I remember in those early weeks receiving from a friend a copy of the Teddy Roosevelt quote about “the man in the arena.” You may know the quote. It starts like this. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by sweat and blood…”
I thought that was a thoughtful gesture from this friend, and then, well, about 10 more people sent me the same quote, and I thought, well…this can’t be good—they must really be worried about me.
I was not overly concerned by the loud chorus of critics. I didn’t have the luxury of time to think about them. And I had an advantage they did not have. I knew then that we had a good plan for fighting the financial crisis.
There are many people who understand that now, but there were not many who believed it at the time.
In confronting the financial crisis, we were fighting two battles—one to save the economy from collapse, and one to convince the American people that we were doing the right thing, the fair and the just thing. We won the first of these battles, and we are still fighting the second. At the height of the crisis, President Obama made a difficult and courageous choice. He decided not to alter economic strategy to fit the demands for a more simple and compelling popular narrative—that we nationalize the banks, for example, or let them all burn.
He did not let politics get in the way of doing the right thing, and that made all the difference.
So, graduates of the class of 2012—you already know you have to be prepared to take the risk and heat.
You chose the harder path in graduate school. You chose to learn about power and conflict among nations; about incentives and human behavior; about why nations fail and prosper; about hubris and achievement. This is the study of how to think and how to choose and how to lead.
You chose a place where you could learn the craft of how to advance a cause, a cause larger than yourself.
You chose SAIS because you understand, to complete Teddy Roosevelt’s words, that “the credit belongs to the man in the arena…who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause.”
I look forward to seeing you in the arena, and I wish you the very best.
THE THIRD WAY CORPORATE DEMOCRATS LOVE TO SPEAK OF TEDDY ROOSEVELT AS THEIR HERO......TEDDY FOUGHT FOR THE UNIONS AND WORKER'S RIGHTS AND HE FOUGHT TO BREAK UP THE 'TRUSTS'....CORPORATE LARGESSE AND FOUGHT FOR REGULATING CORPORATIONS......ALL THINGS THAT THIRD WAY DEMOCRATS HAVE UNDERMINED. HE WAS A PROGRESSIVE IN THE REAL SENSE.....FISCALLY. THIRD WAY DEMOCRATS ARE POSERS.
GEORGE W BUSH AND OBAMA ARE GUILTY OF INTERNATIONAL CRIMES.....THAT IS WHY THE US IS NOT APART OF THIS INTERNATIONAL BODY. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE GOOD POLICY FOR A DEMOCRACY? IT IS POLICY THAT CAME FROM THESE THINK TANKS!
International Criminal Court From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
State parties As of July 2012
121 states are states parties to the Statute of the Court, including all of South America, nearly all of Europe and roughly half the countries in Africa. A further 32 countries, including Russia, have signed but not ratified the Rome Statute; one of them, Côte d'Ivoire, has accepted the Court's jurisdiction. The law of treaties obliges these states to refrain from “acts which would defeat the object and purpose” of the treaty until they declare they do not intend to become a party to the treaty. Three of these states—Israel, Sudan and the United States—have informed the UN Secretary General that they no longer intend to become states parties and, as such, have no legal obligations arising from their former representatives' signature of the Statute. 41 United Nations member states have neither signed nor ratified or acceded to the Rome Statute; some of them, including China and India, are critical of the Court. The Palestinian National Authority, which neither is nor represents a United Nations member state, has formally accepted the jurisdiction of the Court. On 3 April 2012, the ICC Prosecutor declared himself unable to determine that Palestine is a "state" for the purposes of the Rome Statute.
