And why do we care what the bank shill in chief has to say?  Nothing is possible so long as he holds office and the banksters will get him his billion to make it another 4.

Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Americans, good people of the world. I bring to you today an important message, a message vital to the security and safety of our great nation. For even as I speak there are forces gathering around us. These forces gather like storm clouds on the horizon, ready to strike into the heart of our civilization. These forces seek to undermine our government. They seek to destroy our way of life. They seek to compromise our interests overseas. They seek to crash our economy. These forces do not want us to win the future.

The forces of which I speak know no master. They know no borders. They do not obey our rules. Yet they are here in our midst, lurking beneath the surface of society, waiting for the right moment to erupt from their lairs and wreak their horrible havoc. Their time is close. We must be ready.

Folks, let me be clear, this will not happen as long as I am President. I promise you that.

There are those who say that these forces do not present a danger to us, to our freedoms. But we have seen the damage for ourselves. Good Americans have already fallen prey to their manipulations. Those who downplay this danger are in fact complicit to it. This is not right.  This is not the America I love. Rest assured that over the next several weeks my administration will put forward a twenty-two step plan to fight this new threat.  We will be successful in this fight. We will win the future.

Thank you, good night, and God bless America.

'He said he was confident Congress ultimately would raise the limit. "We always have. We will do it again," said Obama,'

Does this need any further comment?

Barack H. Obama is like a cancer in our country, Dr. Ron Paul is like a cure for that cancer. Be on the lookout for MSM reporters, who are virtually all card carrying members of the Council on Foreign Relations, who will try to disparage Ron Paul for the globalist agenda now that Ron Paul has filed his paperwork for his Presidential exploratory prospects. We have seen their play book before. Now go get them.

if all you do is raise it each time you reach it, what's the point in having it?

Why not just ban the debt ceiling?

How Much did the Kashkari/Paulson bailout raise the debt ceiling. Oh, I forgot, like the war, it was off the books.


Thank You ZH or being one of the very rare sites to know that Neel Kashkari was also one of the engineers.

Republicraps or Demublicans...

...False left-right paradaigm....

...Kabuki Theater and 3 Shell/Thimblerig.


All designed to give Americans the impression they have a choice.

They don't.

Deep Capture of your alleged elected representatives has been accomplished by soul-less corporate interests, where every human on the planet is a mark, and none have inherent or inalienable rights from God. We are just tissue and DNA to them, and there for experimentation of economic, social, political and psychological means.

And we are tools and instruments to further deepen the trench between the haves and have nots, to be used and discarded.

This is what civilization looks like when power in all its forms takes over and wealth is the new god and control is the new religion.

Dear Friend, do you not understand the magnificancne that is the U.S.A.?

Give up all your positions to the FED and the Dimons and Blankfeins and Holy Bansksters and their Legislative Accolytes; it is the only way for you to truly be free.

When you know the love of the Tnemnrevog; you may spread it with us in the airports and the shopping malls, and with your family and friends.

War is peace, servitude is wealth, toil is liberty, obedience is freedom.

is Obumma past his 'honeymoon period' yet so that i can call him a lying fuking scumbag like every other politician in human history?!!!

TD it's no good going through everything Obumma once stood for, including all his campaign promises now lying broken on the floor. This snake bankster puppet has and will shed every skin that means anything and undermine every word in the English language before he's through. Snake oil's not only Obummas game, it's been played as a religion b everyone in DC for 200 bloody years.

Where's the surprise in this? Were we born yesterday that we forget we've been lied to by every politician and every Govt in our lives. That we've always given some new fresh faced 'Great White Hope' a chance and always been pissed on without fail. 

We thought Bush was shit (he was). We thought nobody could be worse but Obumma has taken shit to a whole new level. What does it take to wake up around here the Govt system is broke and rotten at the core???

Govt is the toilet of society and politicians are its turds. Flush Govt and the crap down the drain once and for all, where it came from and where it belongs. I for one have had enough of this stinking system in my lifetime already

I keep foolishly wondering how long it will be before those so focused on smaller government begin to realize that any government is too large. I know, I should just stop worrying and love the bomb... I mean vote the bums out... er form a third party... Nahh, I just can't do it.

Even idiot McCain would have been nirvana.

I don't think so. Outside of swapping left wedge issues for right wedge issues, the end results would be the same: continuation of W's neo-con foreign policy, contiuation of W's internal police state expansion, continued regulatory capture by the banking criminal class. The substantive difference of electing Obama over McCain was putting our first black president in office. This one thing by itself is a big deal in helping to pull the race monkey off our collective American backs.  If nothing else, every black parent can now tell their son or daughter that they can one day grow up to be president, meaning they can rise to the highest heights of our society, and not have it be some sick, cosmic joke.

Yay! What a pile of horse shit. Remember that talk about hatchets and scalpels? I was hoping someone would have brought out the battle axe but would have settled for hatchets, it eems Obama is using the scalpel for other purposes closer to breast and butt implants.
