Press Secretary Gibbs Expected To Hold Egypt Briefing At 3:00 PM

Tyler Durden's picture

The outgoing press secretary of the White House is supposed to hold a press briefing at 3PM to share the White House's views on this week's events in Egypt. Earlier, Hillary Clinton already made a statement which pretty much asked Egypt's citizens to go back home and resume purchasing iPads. We are quite curious to see how the White House will spin the overthrow of one of its favorite regimes over the ages. Even more so, since this is a revolution inspired to no little part by none other than the Federal Reserve and more specifically its genocidal monetarist practices.

The second we see a live link with the feed we will provide it to readers.

Are the Pyramids or the FED the mother of all pyramid schemes ? I am getting confused :)

asteroids's picture

The FED wanted higher prices. Well, students of history will tell you this was a VERY predictable result.

Gibbs has a bugger on his lip. Someone should tell him.

This may seem trivial and off-topic, but what the hell is Hillary doing with her hair? I swear it looks like a robo-Hillary has replaced the original and the robo-Hillary has fake, barbie-style hair.

Listening to her monotone, "support everyone" speech, must only further inspire the Egyptian people to burn the fucker down.

If anything is going to persuade me that David Ikke's lizard people exist, it's Hilary C.

Hell ! He can't even forge a simple birth certificate !

No kidding.  He could go to the kitchen of any Applebees and find five guys that could turn him on to a guy that knows a guy that can get him a new birth certificate.

Well you do have to make a decision once in a while to get things done. He'll appoint a blue ribbon commission to study it. They'll give the results around 2013.

Webster Tarpley's analysis from January 16th

http://tarpley.net/2011/01/16/tunisian-wikileaks-putsch/

"Another figure worthy of mention is Robert Malley, a well-known US left-cover operative who currently heads the Middle East and North Africa program at the International Crisis Group (ICG), an organization reputed to run on money coughed up by George Soros and tactics dreamed up from Zbigniew Brzezinski. Malley was controversial during the 2008 presidential campaign because of the anti-Israeli posturing he affects, the better to dupe the Arab leaders he targets. Malley told the Washington Post of January 16, 2011 that every tree in the Arab forest could now be about to fall: “We could go through the list of Arab leaders looking in the mirror right now and very few would not be on the list.” Arab governments would be well advised to keep an eye on ICG operatives in their countries."

Maybe one of the worst press meetings ever.

These guys just telegraphed to the world that they were caught flat footed and have no ideas or power on the topic.  The best they can do is beg Elbaridea to rouse himself from his Vienna apartment and be a placeholder for the IMF.

Can't even say Obama talked to Mubarak.

Not even the student government at my kid's high school could ef something like that up.

Perception is reality.

The reality is Obama drunk again and everyone can only pray.

Adventures in Hail Mary Foreign Policy.

gibbs clueless;

unarmed citizens getting mowed down by army and the pres doesnt want to jump to conclusions

this ambivalence makes things worse

Will the "grievances" of the AMERICAN people "continue to be monitored closely?"  They better be watching our streets soon.  We have "issues and grievances" with our government and elites too!!!

william the bastard's picture

The more Gibbs talks the lower the S+P goes. Oh, and BTW Obama hasn't called Mubarak- annual recipient of $100 BILLON in US aid !!!!! WTF?

Cleanclog's picture

Yup.  At this rate, "the crisis in America will be solved by the American people", and I don't mean waiting for the next ballot vote.

Do they get it?  Interesting that the Army appears to be siding with the people in many of the Egyptian cities. Could it happen in America?

There's a constitutional prohibition against using the US military in a domestic action. Remember Bush's dilemma in the aftermath of Katrina?

This ICG is looking friendlier by the minute. Our good friend Zbigniew is invited to their parties also.

Watching Al Jazeera now and still no official position. Democracy is bad for globalist foreign policy. Expect no surprises from Gibbs.

Did u c it? Oh yes.

Sudden Debt's picture

No, the police joined the people after the army took over.

They armed the people as much as they could.

 

Also there have been riots in Jordania, the biggest US outpost of the region.

The US will need to step in now.

If that is true, then it's checkmate.

The White House and State Department were scheduled to hold a press briefing but they have canceled it, waiting for Mubarek to speak first. CNN reports Mubarek is trying to avoid losing his grip on power and does to want to come across as week. The US is pressing for reforms from Mubarek rather than supporting the protesters full-on.

 

Where is this comment from?  They mis-spelled WEEK. 

tmosley's picture

Sorry, that's the amount of time left in office.  

Saxxon's picture

Which iPad-wielding Ivy League Communications Major  wrote, "does to come across as week" ?

Misspellings and gibberish are more common now than when they invented spellcheck.  Yahoo! comes up with them frequently in their 'headlines'.

Id pick 20 people at random from the phone book to replace this current JOKE of an administration chock full of retards!
