Obama Tries Stand Up Comedy … Bombs

George Washington's picture




 

President Obama tried his hand at stand up comedy.  Here’s the punchline:

Russia has pointed to America’s decision to go into Iraq as an example of Western hypocrisy. Now, it is true that the Iraq war was a subject of vigorous debate, not just around the world but in the United States, as well. I participated in that debate, and I opposed our military intervention there.

 

But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system. We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory. We did not grab its resources for our own gain. Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people in a fully sovereign Iraqi state that can make decisions about its own future.

We get the joke …  For example, we know that:

  • The protests against the Iraq war were the largest protests in history, and yet the politicians plowed ahead with the disastrous war and refused to listen to the facts … or the will of the people

We get it … the whole satirical opposite-of-reality comedy schtick. It’s just not very funny.

So – other than a few polite claps by his secret service escorts – Obama’s stand up act is getting no applause:

Sometimes I feel like the Cold War set a higher scale for the USG to adhere to; probably naive on my part.

The US and Russia had a chance to join forces and police nuclear weapons, but more it seems the USG's rogue operators (wealthy bankster families) used the collapse of the USSR to turn the US into a fascist paradise.

We also threw away a chance at building a cooperative open-market system.

They'd prefer silence to being laughed at. The sociopaths had been laughed at.

Sure is great to see so many good folks reporting the truth. Being the truth.

Here is a comedy that we should all hope is just that. A comedy.

Will you fire on American citizens?:

I've never interacted with a Jew but I would love to know how many of the population really think they are the chosen ones. Any Jews on this site I'd appreciate your feedback. If this belief is representative of the population then the reason has got nothing to do with holy books or gods, it will have to do with arrogance and this will lie at the very heart of the problems this group has faced through out history.

I am not a Jew, but I have interacted with a few. They are proud of their achievements as a community, but not any more than any other similarly identifiable community may be. I did ask one guy about this "chosen people" business and his response was a religious one, that Israel was chosen by God to keep and spread the law (of the Torah) amongst the lawless. Not sure what that means because Jews seem to be least interested in converting anyone to their faith.

They may believe they are special, but so does almost everyone else who have survived and had been successful.

I've always thought it devious marketing the way they name these things. By malicious intent or lack of vigilance afterwards, they always end up doing the opposite.

Its how the Patriot Act becomes, spying on the patriot. The Affordable Care Act becomes, completely unaffordable. Free Flow of Information Act becomes, restriction of press & information.

But they always have cleverly crafted names don't they? ;-)

But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system.

This operation was not authorized by the United Nations and was the first time that it used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council and against a sovereign nation that did not pose a threat to members of the alliance.

I always wondered why German citizens never rose up against hitler and now we witness the exact same thing with America. I guess while depotism doesn't affect us directly we don't give a fuck and when it does we just resign meekly to our fate.

The US leadership is truly evil and we are witnessing the rise of the next pre WW2 Germany. I dread to think what the future holds for you yanks.

you know you are in trouble as a citizen of a country when your leadership believes its own lies, can't understand why no else does and responds to dissenters with names and character assasination. this is the same path israel took so it is no mistake the usa is becoming equally useless(and very dangerous) in the eyes of the world.

Watching this as a Canadian and our boot licking PM heir harper play a tag team role with john kerry (no caps for these AHOLES) I believe Canada's good reputation is being sold cheap.  The west sanctions Russia and then accusses them of starting a cold war? 

I wonder if anyone in the near future will die of natural causes.

How can Obama, Kerry, Nuland,MCain, Graham, Aipac,,,etc etc...look at themselves in the mirror the next day? How can they justify their lying?  Do they not realize that, although the US might be sound asleep, the rest of the world is wide awake and they are calling BULLSHIT on the whole thing. We have no right to say anything. Unless you are Cheney or W. and now add the Potus. They said what they wanted to say..I suspect out of a drunken stupor. Our whole personality of the US looks like shit. FAT, STUPID, LAZY< MONEY GRUBING assholes with leadership that we let do these things without a total OUTCRY! We only have ourselves to blame.

But isn't this what 'out-of-town' tryouts are for? And is this standup act any worse than the usual BLS stats that spew out every week?
My guess is that the road crew might have been let go with those SS agents, and thus the applause sign didn't get lit up properly. Thus the audience didn't know how to react except with the truth, and how scary is that!

Could Obama and Putin have the same handler?

Would that handler be stationed somewhere just east of the Mediterrainian Sea?

Remember, Rothechild financed (handled) both France and England when napoleon was doing his thing.  I think they also did ok during hitlers rampage.

Barry never was in control but his brain is on vacation and his mouth is working overtime.

Ahhhh, Crash.

Great ponderers think alike.

We see the build up of Russian troops on the Ukraine border.

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Russia-troops-border-mass/2014/03/27/id...

We see the nazi trouble makers in Kiev disrupting things again proving instability, thus rightly justifying an intervention to bring total stability. Russian style. All adding to the boiling pot of more contrived reasons for the US team to add thier bantering, and riff-raf antic acting.

http://rt.com/news/right-nationalists-storm-ukraine-701/

Hummmm...two plus two equals four?

Like, is the instigation part of a clever plan to take the Ukraine from the west and seal that deal of a leaky back door of skulduggery for now?

Heck, if the USA can contrive all kinds of reasons and false flag events that everybody knows about, why not Russia. It should be no surprise, or something to make a big deal out of. Can we just bring all our troops home and mind our own farking business. Maybe guard our own borders, instead of every other border in the world?

SUPPORT THE TROOPS!

BRING THEM ALL HOME NOW AND SAVE THE ECONOMY!!

His shelf life expired long ago.  I'm actually quite surprised Soros couldn't have done better with his team than trying to go another season with this lefty.  With the draft coming up and the retirement of the fed's script, I'm hoping to get a strong righty on the mound to face the line up coming out of the eastern division.
