Obama Contract Slides On InTrade

Tyler Durden's picture


The first debate is still in progress, but the habitual gamblers who have a compulsion to bet all the time 24/7 on event outcomes have already spoken via their favorite venue InTrade, and the initial reaction is not favorable for the incumbent. Having traded over 70 for nearly two weeks, the "Obama for president" contract flash crashed below 70 promptly for the first time in many days, and has slid 8% in the past few minutes. Naturally, the contract has quite a bit to go until parity. On the other hand it does bear remembering that when it comes to predictive capacity InTrade odds are notoriously bad: just recall the Obamacare gamble when virtually everyone on InTrade was certain it would not pass. All that said, at least according to InTrade it appears that the first presidential debate has not gone quite as the current president might have planned.

Anyone expressing interest in this kabuki theater of a "debate" that is a manifestation of the false left-right paradigm & illusion of choice system of duly appointed puppets, with both Rs and Ds working for the exact same institutions (that does not include the American Citizenry), is merely adding support to the game.

It's all horseshit. Whoever wins the election will inevitably ensure that the American People continue to lose.

Neither one are the murderers that our apathy is.

We are the murderers as well because we continue to go to work

Remember 71% believe Iran has nuke weaponry, no matter what the fact may be and

60% are eager for war with Iran

Yep, vote or don't vote

no difference, but don't go to work for a month

means no war and no murderers except the machine's

If there was another candidate he would have been invited to the debate. There is 0% whatever libertarian or freedom minded person that is running will be elected no matter how many people vote for him. No matter how many people agree with his ideas or policies. No matter how much whatever fuck head he is running against proves to be stupid or fascist or corrupt. The rulers have decided who they find acceptable and all the good idiots out there will pick one whenever it's time to vote. And the next 4 years will bring more executive orders, tighter leashes on the people, a dollar that buys less, more debt, more young men and women dead in wars on the other side of the world fighting so rich people can be richer, and another 6 shitty apple products that stupid fucks wait in line to buy for some reason that no rational person can understand.

How the fuck do I bet on this happening at Intrade?

departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued
over a fifteen year period.

Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in
times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce
the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to
establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate
penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to
develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and
distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money
in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also

Regarding Obama, his pick of Timmay "by, of and for the banks" Geithner as Treasury Secretary & his re-nomination of Ben "I'll QE to the world's eyes bleed" Bernanke as Fed Head, along with the eleventy trillion in free fiatski spilled upon Wall Street's lap, one can see why Wall Street feels it needs to extract revenge upon him.





What could Romney possibly give Wall Street that Obama hasn't already? I suppose he could just give them the keys to the White House, along with nuclear launch codes, and do his best to ensure it geta an even more dominant role in the massively growing volume of fiat that is printed (to debase living standards) by Geithner/Bernanke, and then just go on vacation.


It's truly incredible; the extent of the rot, and moreover, how open and obvious the rot and CAUSE of the rot is, yet tens of millions of voting aged adults are absolutely blind to it all.

If an average American can't see how hopeless this country's situation is given the DEEPLY CAPTURED politicians and regulators who are constantly and actively working against their interests, they deserve the criminals they vote for.

This was a game changer.  Romney was channeling Reagan.  Obama looked like he was ill.  Obama was simply AWFUL.  The most important thing said tonight was said by Romney: that he would not cut defense spending, and that he would increase it.


THAT is what people wanted to hear.  We can't agree on social policy, so we channel it through the military.  Dramatic increases in defense spending is what won it for Reagan, and it's what will win it for Romney.

God!  Obama was simply AWFUL.  I can't believe it.  He should fire whoever prepped him.  I just cannot fathom how he could do so badly, when Romney is such a dolt.


But you'll see it in the polls.  Obama will sink badly.  As long as Romney keeps channeling Reagan, he will win easily.  Watch him keep talking up increases in defense spending.  That will win it for him.

And do you really think Oboma was awful because he was awful? My read on it is that Oboma thinks Romney is not worth his time and is insulted he even has to get on the stage with him. And lest you forget, until 30 years ago, so in Oboma's adult lifetime, Mormons would not allow a black man to become a Mormon priest, and even their 12 year-old boys can become priests...ya think Oboma really lost? Not me. Oboma just knows he can take down Romney and is insulted by being paired up with him.

You've got to know that Romney has all kinds of dirt hidden away, and Oboma has to know what that dirt is. The question is: Does Oboma want to bother to be President for the next four years? There is lots to be done and since he has now been president, he will get all the gratuities (high paying speaking engagements, write books) anyways. Romney doesn't care about being president; he just wants the title. Kinda like when he was "governor" of Massachusetts but out of the state physically for 2 or the 4 years.

I knew Obama was inexperienced, but this was simply terrible terrible terrible.  What a catastrophic performance.  Obama is THROUGH.  People really saw tonight how inept he is.  What a Disney cartoon that guy is.


I mean, Romney is godawful, but since that is the case, why did Obama look so discouraged and irritated.  Just appalling.  I'm stunned.  I still can't believe Obama was this bad.

What's more likely is rigging the game so in 2016 he can come back and say 'see I told you so' after hyperinflation has already occured.  This would linchpin the future of the Democratic party, and thus the marxists, for the rest of America's future existence.  In fact, this is most likely the end game strategy, really let the SHTF and then come back and say now its time for socialism, when they caused the problem the whole time.

"One entity??" 

One is argueing for bigger governent and government controlled healthcare one one is supporting smaller government and a cuts to PBS subsidies.  You are obviously watching a different debate.  Now executing on those comments is a different animal.  Either way we are bankrupt due to both Republicans AND Democrats.  I agree they are one in the same.  One borrows and spends and the other taxes and spends.

Nobody will ever convince me that GHWB didn't take a dive.  Do people know why Ross Perot was in the debate?  Because GHWB demanded it.  The story goes that he thought RP would take votes from Clinton, but anyone with half a mind would recognize otherwise.  The purpose of the election was to get a democrat in office.  It's easier to understand when you recognize that the two parties serve the same interests and share "power".  Whoever can best advance the cause for "interests" that both parties represent gets their turn. 

Not only does it not matter who wins... the winner will be the one who can inflict more damage to the interests of "the rest of us".

agreed- but stay away from Russia, China and their allies. Nukes could very well fly. I still like the idea of invading Canada. Thats a safe war which I think we could win.  They've got some damed good natural resources too. However, we need a clean war-we dont need to pollute the environment with millions of tons of depleted uranium and make them a toxic dump for the next thousand years like we did to Iraq. They're already getting populated with tens of thousands of deformed mutant like babies. It would not go over well to have thiousands of mutant white Anglo kids running around the Northern hemisphere. The liberals would make us all pay for them.

Rally around BO?  There are 4 weeks to the election.  The Bengazhi Al Qaeda attack on our embassy is turning into a full blown scandal. That "spontaneous" riot on 911 over a "video" was a lie.  There is evidence now that BO had full advanced knowledge of the Attack weeks in advance.  Don't be surprised if he's not eventually charged and escorted out in handcuffs.

There is something fishy going on.  Obama is a hopeless, stupid, down low Chi Town man with "the slims" who is married to a beard but I think he is taking a dive.  He could not debate his way out of a bag and his transcripts are sealed because he was a foreign student and he could not pass any 101 class at the lowliest jounior college.

He could not debate a turtle without the moderator's help but I think we are getting a bait and switch.  Romney did well, from what I heard, I don't watch scum TV.  

The mansion in Hawaii has already been picked out.  He and his cronies looted trillions and now he is going to take a dive.  The scum newsmedia will slowly sell him out.  They will extract a few hundred million more in ad money but he is finished.  The media will spend a few weeks trying to look a little unbiased. The worry the sheep will shut off their TV shit and all of TV is mind control shit.

He should go on trial but he will be whisked away in january to hawaii.  Bank on it.

This is all kabuki or more of The Matrix.  Maybe the sheep will unplug their TVs and Hollywood someday and stop being controlled sheep/serfs.  I will not hold my breath.

Romney had the better hair cut and looked more GQ so he should get elected. Both have nice voices but Romney sounds more like Reagan so he should get elected. Obama will give away free phones so he should win. Romney will spend more and raise less so he's less filling and should get elected. Obama is likable in a little brother retard sort of way so he should get elected. Either way it's bullish as the futures ramp and decide several trillion worth of market cap at 10pm which is nice...saves having to do actual trading between real people. A bright future is in store no matter which liar/shill/fraud gets the teleprompter job...they said so, so it must be true
