Obama Campaign Website Hacked, Or Who Needs Marx When You Have "Commy [sic] Obama"

Tyler Durden's picture

After one group of hackers broke into Fox's twitter account yesterday, today another group returned the favor by converting the president's campaign website to a 21 point summary of politics hosted by, as the Washington Examiner reports, an unnamed "Commy [sic] Obama." Among the points clarifying modern political life were the following pearls "1. Politicians and other public servants lie. 2. Politicians tell you what you want to hear and offer to provide things for 'free' to get votes. 3. When government buys, the people pay." And so forth. The full screen shot is below.

One thing is sure: the amount of high profile website hackings sure is picking up in recent days. So far all have been innocuous. We give that a few more days at most.

maybe they can hack the PPT website and change some of the buy orders to sell orders?

From what I understand, the site wasn't actually hacked. It was posted on a user generated events calendar. Correct me if I'm wrong.

They forgot to list the number one rule of politics: "Politics is like a cesspool: the biggest turds rise to the top."

What are you trying to say.. mobama ain't down for his sheeple people? His next campaign stickers should have a coke background instead of Pepsi looks more Commi..

When will someone here at Zero Hedge publish an article on what I've been talking about for months now. When will someone with web master privileges post that Obama will not even try to balance the budget by lets say cutting 1 trillion dollars from it over a short period of time.

If everyone doesn't know by now what I have been preaching for some time, $1 trillion dollars of federal spending cuts means 1 million lost government jobs. Those are direct government employees, defense, and other contract worker jobs that will be lost.

That means for each and every job lost due to a government spending cut, there will be lost votes from those One Million People who will have lost their jobs due to Obama spending cuts.

You see, Obama's # 1 Priority at this time is to get re-elected in 2012. He cares nothing for the sheeple or anything else than his Ego and to get Re-Elected. That's the name of the game. 

Lets flesh this topic out. Perhaps an article on it?

Yo, Green Hair!

It's OK. Nothing to flesh out. What you said is common knowledge. What you said is what has been said about democratic government for a very long time. Today it's Obama, yesterday it was Bush, tomorrow it will be another empty suit. Frustrating, yes.

 

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
Alexis de Tocqueville

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
Winston Churchill

Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
John Adams

History proves that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings, mankind has not devised anything superior.

Obama's just a circus animal reading a teleprompter as were his predecessors.

Who wrights that stuff for them to read anyway?

They might as well just turn those teleprompters around to the cameras, let the audience read the words on the screen, and make of them as they will.

"Who wrights that stuff for them to read anyway"

 

Certainly not you as teleprompter writers know the difference between 'writes' and 'wrights'!

You're just an obama hater who is trying to make the same old tired comments - show me a president in the last 50 years who hasn't used a teleprompter!

 

I dunno - maybe you were born yesterday - that would explain your lack of knowledge of the past.

Michael clearly said... "Obama's just a circus animal reading a teleprompter as were his predecessors".

But I guess you were to obsessed with the correct spelling of writes to actually comprehend the comment.

$1 trillion dollars of federal spending cuts means 1 million lost government jobs.

No way. Any/all discussion of spending cuts of that magnitude have been spread out over lengthy periods of time, typically 10 years. So lets say its $100bln per year. Then let's factor in all the accounting trickery and column shifting that you KNOW will be in any cuts and *maybe* they cut spending by $60bln per year. Factor in any budgeted spending increases that they'll can, but count as a 'cut' and maybe we're down to $40bln per year.

So MAYBE they cut $40bn per year. No f'ing way that results in 1 million lost government jobs.

The most ludicrous thing to me in all these discussions is that they talk about the total 'cut' over some arbitrary time frame (say 10 years). Why not just say you're going to go eleventy trillion dollars from the budget over the next century? It's about as meaningful.

Until politicians start giving definitive, no BS accounting trickery, on how much they will reduce the budget by PER YEAR, you can just ignore all the noise.

A hack is a hack is a hack. if you change the content of a site that you shouldnt have control over, its a hack. Getting into the specifics of how it was done is arranging deckchairs...

In other words, democracy doesn't work - not for long, anyway.

 

So, now what?

nmewn's picture

Sighhh...

The nation was not founded as a democracy.

I can't wait to be forced to purchase a product or service from a corporation simply because a majority of bleating sheep demanded it.

justanotherday's picture

Yes, but it essentially works (or rather doesn't work) as one now. And wait'll they get rid of the electoral college -- it'll be the urban mob uber alles... that is, moreso than it already is.

you may be on to something. but guess what, the g.o.v. will gladly provide you with a safe internet, just as long as everyone logs on with a fingerprint scan. it's for your own protection you  know.

Bingo"""""""We have a winner!!!!!  ....and it's careless whisper....  That is exactly the goal of all this hacking......scare all those facebook users until they demand a securer and safer internet...fingerprint scan or iris scan so big brother knows all.

No doubt. I'd hate to have my assets in the The DOW Bubble 2.0 when they shut down the exchanges; they will no doubt. Just a matter of time.

Come on Tyler. This has Banzai7's fingerprints all over it. WB7, I thought you were asleep and here you are hacking Obama. Can you say "secret service visits Hong Kong"? :>)

On another note, it looks like the head of TEPCO will stress test Palin. News at 11.

augie's picture

I hardly think the "head" of tepco would be enough for her. Palin needs some jungle love to even arrive close to "stress." How many gremlins has she popped out?  

Aristarchan's picture

Oh...so some Tepco slug thinks he's gonna put the meat stem to my old flame Sarah? Well, when the evil little fuck gets tired of corraling neutrons with a butterfly net, then it is high noon around some igloo in the great white north. But, he better wear a spent uranium jock strap, I practice my Tamakeri with front-point crampons.

And the Internet kill switch gets enabled in 5...4....3....2...!

explodinghead's picture

I am sure its already enabled..just a question of flipping the switch at this point.

Zero Govt's picture

impossible... to kill all telecoms lines and mobile networks too ...commerce would be fuked ...Govt is truly the dumbest institution on the planet but even it's not that dumb, the snap-back from society and commerce would be fuking colossal 

Chuck Walla's picture

A small price to pay for the continuous blessings of Peerless Leader. Oh, the Teleprompter can keep Obama around. He's good for comic relief and a quick pick up game.

Libertarian777's picture

You mean like how there was colossal SnapBack when the tsa started molesting people? Or the colossal SnapBack when $2.5 trillion was monetized?

The only time killing the Internet will affect everyone to revolt is once most tv is ip tv and only delivered digitally through the internet. Then people will revolt. As long as the government just disables net neutrality and gives preference to American idol votes and the bachelorette programming, no one will complain.

Zero Govt's picture

Lib'777  -  how long would/could Govt switch off the telecoms lines just to shutter the web? ..are we talking 2 days here, maybe 5 days without any www? ...and what will that get them? ...a brief muffling of the Web and then they'd have to switch it on again, the modern inter-connected world needs it to churn (Amazon can't operate, nor Google, see the lawsuits coming hard, big and fast?) ...and the shutdown would get them precisely nowhere as they'd have to switch it on again and 'Bingo', what they 'stopped' is only a brief delayed interruption to service... and then collosal snapback from citizens, commerce and the Press for the President to field now the Wall Street Journal, Rush Limbaugh and Rolling Stone websites are back up online!!!

"Mr President, here's Executive Order: Shut Up the Internet to sign. And here's your Political Suicide Note which you may as well sign while you're at it!" 

The Web is a social/commercial monster too big for even the delusional cretins of politics to take on (and they know it). They'll snip, intrude, tap, censor and try to inact control for sure but a full-on take-down (aka Egypt etc) would be the Administrations death sentance (and they know it)

"The Web is a social/commercial monster too big for even the delusional cretins of politics to take on "

Spot on! The "internet kill switch" hype is just "fear mongering for dummies" ... keeping the dummies afraid to speak out on the net, or even to visit sites like ZH. Won't happen.

V in PA's picture

What makes you think the Obama administration gives a shiite about commerce?

writingsonthewall's picture

Sadly no - the internet is a network of nodes - you shut down a portion and it will simply find a new way around - that is why it's a genius and robust design.

This is why the authorities are looking for reasons to restrict it - because they can't do anything else. In order to kill the internet they would need to take out every phone line in the world.......and I would imagine that would cause suspicion amongst the most clueless of the sheepeople.

Ahmeexnal's picture

ummm....how do you know it hasn't been hacked already?

That would explain the complete and utter nonsense during the recent 'presentations'.

DeadFred's picture

It's very difficult to hack between the telepropter and it's source. It's hard wired with a cable that extends directly from the telepropter down, and down, and down...
