Obama Confirms Leadership Failure, Pulls Out Mother Of All Mutual Assured Nukes: "Raise Debt Ceiling Or Risk Global Recession"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

And people made fun of Hank Paulson for threatening with eternal damnation if congress didn't stamp his multi-trillion blank check to bail out his former co-workers from Goldman. In a step that makes the Kashkari-Paulson threat seem like amateur hour, the teleprompter just received its latest high frequency directive from the Wall Street superiors, promptly delivering the latest MAD message to what continues to be perceived as an idiot audience: "Failure by Congress to raise the U.S. debt limit "could plunge the world economy back into recession," President Barack Obama declared Friday, and he acknowledged that he must compromise on spending with Republicans who control the House to avoid such a crisis. Obama urged swift action, saying he doesn't want the United States to get close to a deadline that would destabilize financial markets. He said he was confident Congress ultimately would raise the limit. "We always have. We will do it again," said Obama, who voted against raising the debt limit as a freshman senator from Illinois."

For those keeping score of the President's numerous accolades, this merely underscores that the president is now in contention for the Nobel Prize in hypocrisy: after all compare this statement to Obama's now supremely ironic remark from March 20, 2006: "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." They sure do. And in order to replace the current failed leadership, they will gladly start with a new president.

From AP:

"I'm the person who is best prepared for us to finish the job so that we're on track to succeed in the 21st century," Obama said. That's the heart of his argument for voters to give him a second term over more than a half dozen Republicans seeking the White House.

As the 2012 campaign gets under way, it's being shaped by a deep disagreement over federal spending in Washington between Republicans who control the House and Democrats in power in the Senate and White House. Obama and Republicans compromised a week ago on a spending bill to avert a government shutdown, a preview of the debate that's certain to dominate the coming months on deficits and the ceiling on money the nation can borrow.

The president said that he doesn't expect either side to get everything it wants in negotiations and that he's pushing for "a smart compromise that's serious."

He warned of dire consequences if the debt ceiling is not raised before it hits its limit of $14.3 trillion; the administration says the latest Congress could possibly act is by early July. But Obama said some longer-term questions about where the government trims its operations will have to be left until after the 2012 presidential election.

"I'm confident that the withdrawal will be significant," he said. "People will say this is a real process of transition, this is not just a token gesture."

When the "Evil Tribe" is done using his ass as a patsy, they will Kenedy-ize him. It will be done by a "white racist" or "Muslim terrorist." The resulting black nationwide chimpouts will lead to a nationalized, miltarized police force and any Constitutionl rights will become "outmoded" in the new emergency. The dollar will die, Nafta currency will replace it (eventually followed by world currency) and control of North America by the ZOG elite will commence. And of course, jooz will get special treatment!

Here is what President Obama told ABC News George Stephanopoulos regarding his Senatorial vote in 2006 opposing a debt increase:
I think that it's important to understand the vantage point of a senator versus the vantage point of a ... president. When you're a senator, traditionally what's happened is, this is always a lousy vote. Nobody likes to be tagged as having increased the debt limit for the United States by a trillion dollars. ... As president, you start realizing: 'You know what? We -- we can't play around with this stuff. This is the full faith in credit of the United States.'

2)  ergo, we may be seeing the bubblish market unable to hold it's "gains" no matter what.  try reflating negative growth?  try wealth transfers to banksters?  probably won't show up in corporate earnings, if we're slowin down here, ok?

3)  the goobermint is bust, not the Country.  make absolutely sure you continue to confuse this, forever, ok?

To gain support, he granted bonuses to those in the military including the Praetorian Guard, city troops and the army outside Italy. He destroyed Tiberius's treason papers, declared that treason trials were a thing of the past and recalled those who had been sent into exile. He helped those who had been harmed by the Imperial tax system, banished certain sexual deviants, and put on lavish spectacles for the public, such as gladiator battles.

The workforce is already cut to the bone. Over half of the people have no savings and are worth less than nothing, so do they give a shit about the stock or bond markets?

The only thing that kept GDP in the black the last few years is QE, and the bankers take almost all of that for themselves.

Instead of being threatened by the elites, why aren't they being threatened with something a little more serious than a delinquent loan payment?

Something like a fucking guillotine?

>>And in order to replace the current failed leadership, they will gladly start with a new president.<<

I wouldn't be so sure.  Virtually all the blacks will vote for Obama as will all the progressive/socialist/neo-Marsits in the Democrat Party.  That gives him 35%-40% of the vote without even campaigning.

The only question is will the independents who voted for him in 2008, many of whom almost immediately had buyer's remorse as demonstrated by the shellacking he took in the 2010 mid-terms, give him a second chance.  If gas is $5/gallon and unemployment above 8%, I doubt it.  But if unemployment is coming down and gas prices come back to $2-$3, then I'd bet the independents vote to re-elect him.

The world NEEDs a major recession, if not a depression.  The dislocations caused by the artificial sugar-high booms created by the federal reserve, especially since the final detachment from gold in 1971, can only be healed by a long, deep recession or depression.  That is the only real, natural, viable cure for the dislocations and inefficiencies caused by the elitist manipulations.

Shut down the government.  Reduce the budget by $2-trillion the first year, and then cut from there.  Eliminate 95% of the departments and programs administered by the federal government, including all that are unconstitutional (not explicitly permitted by the constitution).

Better yet, just terminate the federal reserve, the federal government, the world bank, the IMF, the UN, and every other meddling organization.

Obama is a stooge, the biggest liar ever, and total jerk.  Dump everyone in government today, and close it down.

Not to worry, raising the debt ceiling is a done deal.  There are 192 Democrats in the House who will do whatever Obama tells them to do.  That means only 36 Republicans out of 241 need to capitulate to their Wall Street overlords and vote yes.

The only snag is if the Senate waits until the last minute to act and Rand Paul or some idiot like him decides to filibuster.  At that point, one calendar day must lapse before a vote on cloture can be taken.  Looks like the making of a stock market flash crash to me.

OK, we've got a bid for the debt ceiling of one quadrillion.  Do I hear one quintillion?  Going once, twice ... whoa, did someone just bid one centillion?  Sit down and shut up Geithner!

Cancel the fraud, no need to raise the debt ceiling, although the whole 'debt ceiling' bill that was enacted a few years or decade or so ago, did set up a real stupid dog and pony show that sucks up all political action of a presidential term's worth of time over the course of a few terms. 

Force us to cut for fraud, that's all it was ever for.  (remember, there was no debt ceiling for the first couple of hundred years, just like there was no free trade, etc)

Debt ceiling, is the bankster's best friend.  They can print around it, yet use it to cut public services.  Now all they need is a debt trigger and we can 24/7/365 talk about how we can make fascist tough choices for the bankster profits.

We also didn't bend over for them as bad as we didn't now and actively screw the people 24/7 as the M.O. 

...or we can just cancel the fraud via Glass-Steagall and get on to actually solving our problems so they don't smack us like we're a bird flying in front of a 747.

Good point, debt limit is Newspeak.

"The basic idea behind Newspeak is to remove all shades of meaning from language, leaving simple dichotomies (pleasure and pain, happiness and sadness, goodthink and crimethink) which reinforce the total dominance of the State."

Given that it is clearly not a limit, a more accurate title might be debt target or debt hurdle.

If you are truly honest with yourself, have you no prejudices? Just wondering because I've never really met anyone that didn't, and that would make you pretty special.

That doesn't excuse the comments above, but there is reason some things are better ignored than 'preached' upon thus probably encouraging the 'self-centered, angry racists' just looking for another reason to get angry.

I have prejudices because many of them are confirmed in my day-to-day living.  However, I know they are wrong.  I am a failed Christian by definition.  I can't change that.  I encourage you to read a book like "Peace with God" by Billy Graham.  A good starter book.  There is no Chapter on "Passive Ignoring."

 

My Earthly point was that "ignoring" the hate messages is not the right strategy.  It is understandable to fail all the time, but we need to recognize it.

 

Quick anecdote:  On a flight back from Mexico recently, in the front of the bus.  Stewardess asks me if I want a meal.  I say no, but I would love a double tank and tonic.  She says "what"?"  I say "which part didn't you get?" and we both glare at each other with ill will.  Then I read 75 pages of "Kings Cross" by Tim Keller and feel guilty as heck, (good book; highly recommend).  So I do the hard thing: next time stew comes by I say, "I want to say I'm sorry; this book made me realize I have behaved badly; please take the book jacket and see if you like the book; later she stopped by to say thanks."

 

Rambling answer and off-topic; but if just one person found it valuable I would be very happy...God Bless.

not trying to destroy your faith here, but to me, knowledge of the world around us, makes us stronger and more aware. besides if you base your faith on men, you will be very sorry. anyway, this man graham is a interesting character. his organization got its start with financing by a well known satanist of his time, william randolph hearst. graham is not his real name. his name was franks but he changed it to graham. graham is a 33 degree freemason. in his early days, graham was said to have had many women while he was married to ruth.  graham believes there are many ways to God. at this stage, i am afraid, that mr graham was installed , if you will, to dillute the message of Christ and to mislead and his entire organization was a controlling mechanism and a infiltration from the start.  this method of preaching where these men yell and talk loudly was invented by a man named  E Grandison Finney, who is said to be the father of religious brain washing. in graham's older age, in some of his interviews on national television, his true thoughts have come out on many issues, thoughts perhaps that he has not really dealved into for obvious reasons since supposedly he was a southern Baptist.  just somethhing for you to chew on perhaps.

I take no offense. I am aware of at least the Freemason accusations  We should always question spokespeople of Christianity.  But you also need to understand that Satan is not a mythical figure.  He is amongst us, trying to find our weak points to exploit.  You will not find a messenger of Christ who is not under some kind of attack.  I am personally comfortable that Graham's preaching is a faithful to the scripture.  I love the image of a person who confronts Satan and simply says, "Jesus lives here now. Go away."

 

I have read your posts.  You are clearly searching.  I wish you the best...

What's the point of having a debt ceiling if we continually raise it?

It's to keep the government growing, spending, expanding credit to the elite while devaluing the currency and increasing taxes on the middle class in order to keep them in their places.

Time to eliminate all powers from the Federal govt except defense and set them on a strict budget.

Let each state design it's own programs and regulate itself.

These politicians have completely destroyed this country.

He warned of dire consequences if the debt ceiling is not raised before it hits its limit of $14.3 trillion; the administration says the latest Congress could possibly act is by early July. But Obama said some longer-term questions about where the government trims its operations will have to be left until after the 2012 presidential election.

Biggest piece of shit ever - no one else is close. Much like all of his other unfunded mandates (i.e health care), the real costs are set to show up after 2012 so he could be re-elected. This should be a criminal offense.

You call bullshit.  That almost everyone is a racist here and then claim that some of the people here are libertarians (people who read a lot know how to spell without spell check). You rile against people for their false statements and lack of research.

All of this is interesting.  Yet I don't see any actual substance. All I see is reactionary platitudes common in those who constantly deny the reality of the situation.  But you should be thanked by everyone here.  You see, when you launch into these nothingburger attacks and then attach "racism" to it, you destroy the impact that that word has on everyone else in society.  It no longer becomes an attack. It's no longer taboo. It's just a word used typically by someone who has no substance to their argument.  It can be written off as someone saying "um" and "like" and "you know" a lot.

I do have a problem with your use of bullshit though.  I really like this word.  I find it be extremely effective in normal conversation and it will more often then not incite some sort of impassioned, thought-provoking, introspective exercise. But what I love about bullshit the most is that anyone who uses it should know that it's going to come back strong on them.  And if they invoke bullshit and then back it up with nothing, there's a special pleasure in ensuing person who calls bullshit on the original caller of bullshit. 

So to this end, try to actually contribute to the dialogue here. I would hate for bullshit to lose its meaning.

America's destruction commenced in 1913 when the Fed was created. 

The Fed is the root cause of the Great Depression and every major calamity since.

Who cares about a few bankrupt zombie TBTF banks being kept alive by Fed cash infusions since 2008?  The Federal government has been a bankrupt zombie TBTF institution kept alive by Fed cash infusions since 1920.

We're in the final stages of America's destruction from endless currency printing.  The rest of the world is losing faith in US FRNs now.  Granted, it took 98 years to happen, but it's happening now.

It may take another year, maybe two years, maybe three years, for all faith in US FRNs to be lost. That will be the end of America.

It's not about Obama vs Bush. It's not about Democrat vs Republican.  It's not about politics at all.

It's about a central bank issuing the nation's currency and printing endless amounts of it at will. 

It's about transferrring wealth from the people to the bankers via endless currency printing, otherwise known as inflation.

It's about destroying the living standard of the American people by stealing all their weath via endless currency printing, otherwise known as inflation.

It's been happening slowly since 1913.  The US FRN has lost 98% of it's 1913 value.

We're in the final stages now.  We'll see massive currency printing from here on out.  Massive inflation.  Massive increases in prices of all commodities. 

Forget the fucking dips.  Back off and see the big picture.  This is the endgame.  It might be one year. Maybe two years.  Maybe three years.  But we're approaching the end of the road now.  The end of America. 

You think other nations are going to sit back and watch their trillions of US Treasuries go worthless without retaliating?  

Don't be so foolish.

And the holders of financial assets, who actually control things, will not allow their assets, including FRNs, to become worthless.  There is an end game, but it is not one that allows FRNs to turn into toilet paper.  It will be one that turns us into debt slaves to serve that requirement.  Or there will be revolution.

At this point i wish to question the validity of the education received at any and all collegiate levels, any degrees received, at any level, from US institutions.. from my napkin math, it appears "students/graduates" have an ability to fiscally manipulate debt loads till degree is received (with a potential of not earned through academic achievement) regardless of the students performance. Evident by "national and private student lending programs" performance. I've read to understand, repayment is only around a mere 45% of the interest currently being accrued, is being paid down on these loans, further indebted nation as a whole, by way of credit rating disinformation(akin to my belief of  what "fraud upon the court/perjury" is.

 It is apparent, this received education has lacked a teaching in basic fiscal discipline. and further, potentially aided to this crisis by way of pushing lending akin to these failing new-age "financial products" of the past 4 decades. The fact of this loan performance(or lack of), must be recognized as to how this could have happened, as I am sure, each student had plenty of time to inspect these loan agreement prior to signing them. I must bring into question their competency. As to include all receivers of this education in question, the grads who paid bill in cash. Why have they not found this situation previously, as it has directly affected the costs for(and access to) education( i should add this, ....competent education). secondly, they had FIRST HAND EXPOSURE, with an ability to publicise these practices as this time has passed.

 

 

update: yesterday i ran an add in a community that had been identified as one of MSNBC's "crisis capitals" Elkhart, IN. I offered $22 per hr (which is more than my wife the doctor brings home) for workers willing to earn it...no experience necessary...on job training, aswell performance based pay structuring. I received ZERO REPILES,so i rescinded this offer, as i really don't need the labors, i was just trying to offer work for those that want to.

This isn't a society that encourages people to think for themselves.  If you repeat conventional wisdom and common knowledge long enough and consistently enough, *most people* will internalize that message.

This doesn't mean there's something wrong with those people.  It's the dominant human trait.  The people who refuse to internalize consistently-pushed thought-systems are generally thought of as a pain in the ass, and marginalized, persecuted, mocked, etc.  Once in a very great while, one of those assholes achieves something spectacularly great, and then the common response is to laud him for his refusal to accept predominant views.

Most of the time, though, they just live rather unfulfilled lives surrounded by people who are more willing to accept what they're told.

Welcome to the human species.

The reason we are debt is entitlement? really…

No the reason we are in debt is because money is debt and so debt can only accumulate whilst you try to pay off the current debt.

If you grant a government authority to tax you say 20-30% you ARE entitled to the benfits this was the only reason you granted the government the authority in the first place.

The government need not go into debt it could has all the funding it could possibly need via direct taxation and the monotizing of its own bonds to create currency debt free.

When are people going to see it? Debt is created because you opened the door to the middle man (cartel of banksters) who create from nothing and loan at interest to the government thus indirectly indebting the people.

There is no need to grant these private corporations the privilege to issue the public’s credit, it is somthing you have been accustomed to all you life so you accept it as normal.

You aint gonna fix shit by debating within the box.

Interesting part of a story most people seem to have missed amazing how he knows this but does the opposite..

""I had the emir of Qatar come by the Oval Office today," Obama said. "Pretty influential guy. He is a big booster, big promoter of democracy all throughout the Middle East. Reform, reform, reform. ... Now he himself is not reforming significantly. There's no big move toward democracy in Qatar. But you know part of the reason is that the per capita income of Qatar is $145,000 a year. That will dampen a lot of conflict.

 

"I make this point only because if there is opportunity, if people feel their lives can get better, then a lot of these problems get solved."

Gold and silver are going up because of money printing, right?

So if the debt ceiling is not raised, and the govt. doesn't need to borrow from the fed, that will be good for the US Dollar, right?

And the money from the POMO that is recirculated into the stock market will cease, right.

Stock market goes down. Dollar goes up. And gold and silver go.....?

Goog broke down. A leader biting the dust, so to speak.

Most of the steel stocks look weak. Ditto for copper.

Many of the gold and silver stocks are looking weak. The penny stocks are soaring...

If the end of the world comes, in the form of a govt shutdown, money will become scarce. Confidence will be shaken. It will be deflationary.

Everybody expects inflation. I've noticed that when everybody expects something it usually ain't happenin....

Cheers,

The debt ceiling will be raised. The money will be printed.

The welfare promises require it.

Plan on it.

pmetals are and will go up not only from

recovery printing but also from the nature

of the credit money system itself.  if this system

is maxed out, credit/debt saturation, the true

value or nature of pmetals becomes......

significant and a bird in the hand is worth .....

Is that sort of like the Mayor of Okuma demanding that we do what he wants, or he'll blow up one of the reactors at Fukushima Dai-ichi?

Not that I like O, but he's right.  Don't raise the ceiling, the banks fail and with FDIC broke we all lose our money.  Or do you really have EVERYTHING in PM's?

We need to get rid of fractional reserve lending and the Fed first.

I should add, any President that pushes for that would end up like JFK.

we feel privileged as the fragile link to life is so precious in more ways than one. But the same position experienced with a dour sailor's chord as living thread feels like insult being added to injury... there lies man's illusion of freedom. If we die grasping for gold we feel life was exciting while it lasted. If we die retching from cold we feel cheated before and after...to the same extent, double whammied.

The normal guy/gal is scorned here but for what?? Not understanding the effect of Fukishima on the Llama prices in Zimbabwe?? If no one here can agree on anything how does a non-math or non-economic person have a hope of understanding.

I could not find any other channel that was Obama clear. Go figure. Soon we will have 24/7 Obama Shows, with the greatest speeches. I am investing in Teleprompters.

It's given me a lot to think about as reviews editor moving forward. It seems everyone has different thoughts on what a review should do and what the role of a reviewer is, and it's enlightening to read your thoughts. Thanks everyone.
