Obama's Victory Is Very Bullish For This Google Search Query

Tyler Durden's picture

The query in question? "Renounce Citizenship"

 

Simon Black's always interesting insights on this 'event' can be found here.

 

Perhaps the geographical dispersion of those searches will be insightful, if rather paradoxical...

 

And by targeted MSA:

 

And as a bonus, another search query just hit a record: Remington 223

scramble your IP. use VPN and/or proxy. tag my fake IP cause it's YOUR RIGHT to NOT BE TRACKED.

Same thing happened 8 years ago...

The IP address doing the searches were traced back to Alec Baldwin's computer...

I would think a search for 'offshore blind trust' is just as popular now...

The reason it happened 8 years ago is Bush is the same as Obama.

When the fiat dies it all changes.  Get your guns and food stocks.  Get in physical shape to fight.  One thing about stock brokers and bankers, they are not Chuck Norris. 

If you have the money retire out of country.  Lots of places to disappear to.

Hey, come on now....
Hypocrites galore deluxe

 

When Bush was running all the Left Coast Hollywood Uber-Liberals stated unequivocally that if He Won, They Were Leaving America.

And you fuckers lied to us.
You're still here.

I entreat you, please go now....
After all, your sterling little Messiah is following all of Bush's policies and raising your taxes, to boot.

Go, please leave us alone..........

Go.
Before the wealth tax fucks you Cadillac Commies over Real Good.
Which you so richly deserve

If you're going to renounce you better do it soon.  Within a few years if they don't ban it entirely they'll make it so prohibitively expensive that it might as well be banned.

Renouncing your citizenship seems a little radical to me.

Here's an idea: Celebrate Obama's election by buying a ton of coal. Have it delivered to a pit in your yard and then just burn it.

I already do that every year to celebrate Earth Day.

knukles's picture

And prime it with a good drenching of leaded hi octane ethyl

 

And just for the pinnacle of Political Correctness, invite the poor minority single parent children from the wrong side of the tracks to roast marshmallows and hot dogs over the pristine flames.

 

(I am having trouble holding it all together ....
This is seriously fucked up...)

Part of me is actually starting to think O'Bama is the anti-Christ. If that helps?

Cman5000's picture

@ Bubble i hear what your saying on the anti -christ.But i would think the anti-christ wouldn't need a teleprompter and would more than likely speak a number of languages. I say let it burn if the 47% want this have it.

IIRC, its $375 a ton delivered here, min. 4 tons....

Buddy of mine burns it, he "bought" offset credits by not having kids....

Do you burn your garbage in the same pit?

Bennie Noakes's picture

Only $100/ton where I am. There's a guy about 15 miles down the road with a hillside pretty much made of it. High sulfur stuff. The utilities don't want it.

Flakmeister's picture

I am referring to good anthracite from PA... not sure of sulfur content, but it has to be low....

Would love to hear which countries all these zh readers will be immigrating to.

I hear many countries are dying to get their hands on unemployed conspiracy theorists who think BO is a socialist and that burning tonnes of coal in your "yard" is a way to get back at the system.

The world is your oyster! Quick, renounce renounce renounce!

If they go to Gaza, they won't need to apply for citizenship anywhere.  Just become completely stateless.

That's gotta be a better approach than trying to become a taxpayer for some other country.

"There were between 222-235 renunciants in 2008, between 731-743 in 2009, and about 1485 in 2010;[20][21] In 2011, there were 1781 renunciants.[22]"

 

says the wikipedia:

On the other hand the US has got lots of immigrants making up the loss.

ACHTUNG!    ...   ABGANG TEUER!

Let's see, where and when have we heard this before...

 

And those are just the ACTIVE renunciations, where the person a bought the bullet and paid the absurd 'exit tax'. (which now also applies to exiting green card holders which is why only retards and criminals want US residence visas)

Bullies (psychopaths) r all around, where to run? Plus, its my home. I'm originally from very far away, I've lived all over to end up here, and the pitch is same, appeals to apathy, fear, greed, herd symptoms... & of course violence in one form or another

Be sure that to round you out & brand you they tell you to organize to participate in the system you distrust (for screwing Humanity as long as It's been), in order to work through it, in order to free your self from their "management &  protection service"... While at the same time provide acknowledgement, thus legitimacy to the imposed values circumstances system of oppression which you r trying to topple...

All been said, totalitarian tyranny...

If one is a slave among slaves, wouldn't freedom entail a path through a state of being a prisoner AMONG prisoners? And then, can a Human ever NOT be free? I mean a comunity of REAL Humans...

Organization? I dunno...

Individual, that's just a matter of sincere personal priority

And Mossad.  Ole Sergei met with the Israelis to hep them.  It's about fighting terrorism of course, nothing to worry about.

Hey - all my searches for amputee porn were done strictly for research purposes.

There may have been one, perhaps two chubbs... 

Anyway - fun fact - President Clinton, who wouldn't appoint you if you had foreskin given who backed him {see 'the kosher kitchen'} was bugged by Mossad.  Yep - the Israelis bugged the fucking Oval Office. 

 

Think it ain't bugged now?

 

http://freethoughtmanifesto.blogspot.com/2012/10/2-israeli-companies-bugged-us.html

 

No one wants to be one of the bad guys - you don't want to be a filthy racist or Jew hater... and this moral compass is blinding you to the fact that a substantial minority of Jews put Israel and fellow Jews first, will lie and cheat and steal and cry 'antisemite' to cover their actions, and have largely hijacked - explicitly and 'tacitly' much of of the executive branch, and congress, and now the intelligence agencies.

My God, - the Israel First crowd, to start off Obama's administration, blocks the appointment of Chas Freeman because... wait for it... Freeman notes that a lot of what Israel does is illegal and harmful to America's interest.

http://www.serendipity.li/zionism/charles_freeman.htm

I, like most of you, used to think only crazy assholes subscribed to the idea we have a 'zionist occupation government.'  Now, I appreciate that it takes massive brainwashing to get people to not see what is patently obvious by conflating fears/rejection of 'antisemitism' with noting, say, that most of the people delivering the intel from the OSP were right wing neocon Jews.

 

It takes a sort of entrenched intellectual retardation to not wonder why, with 2% of the population, Jews head the fed/fomc, the sec, fdic, cftc, cbo, office of budget and management, national economic council, and council of economic advisors... and have generally had substantial over-influence at the World Bank and IMF and, I'll presume, the ECB.

 

With Jewish people being 2% of the country, and many with primary loyalty to Israel and fellow Jews in other countries... how is it that their basically heading all the major federal agencies overseeing banking and finance isn't a topic of discussion? 

 

It should go without saying that I don't mean to blanket-villify Jews, but neocons like Perle Feither Wurmser Wolfiwitx and Cohen were... fucking Jewish and acted out of dual loyalty!

 

And the sayanim have endangered this country more than anyone on here appreciates.  In a few years some of our ships might be sunk by missiles with technology stolen by Israel and sold to the Chinese.  China and North Korea likely already have Patriot missiles sent to them by Israel via Finland....   Israel knows, as a good parasite, that the American Empire is in decline and prepares to leap onto the Chinese dog.

 

The Chinese do not yet grasp what this means.  That Talmudic Zionism really, really is evil, racist, and megalomaniacal.

 

Are people that fucking afraid of the 'anti=semite' smear, as if such dominance by a 2% minority group isn't statistically aberrent at the least?

 

Tyler - any change of an article on that?

BurgundianRon's picture

If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one quarter of one percent of the human race.  It suggests a nebulous puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way.  Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of.  He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.

His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine and abstruse learning are also very out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.  He has made a marvelous fight in this world in all ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be excused for it.  The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greeks and Romans followed and made a vast noise, and they were gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, and have vanished.

The Jew saw them all, survived them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmaties, of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert but aggressive mind.  All things are mortal but the Jews; all other forces pass, but he remains.  What is the secret of his immortality?

--Mark Twain, September 1897

Darth Mul's picture

It's a good effort at obfuscation.

 

But it's beside the point.

 

You see, I'm not arguing that "The Jews" should go away or suffer any harm.  I'm arguing that right-wing/neocon Jews have largely hijacked American government and foreign policy and intelligence, and this simply isn't good for the US itself.

 

So, why is it you think quoting Clemens, who managed to pile error on error in a few paragraphs, is germane?

 

A:  You don't.  You've been taught, as a godo hasbara troll, to convert all arguments and discussions to 'racism is bad' - the hitler card.

 

Yawn.

 

By the way, I think the Persians and Egyptians and Greeks are still around. and they are older, richer cultures, I daresay.

As to the history of success and survival - the Jews were largely left alone in various Western countries where they acted as a tribal unit across borders and avoided manual work, largely, and went heavily into banking.

 

It also helps to have 2 sets of earth-bound morality - one for the tribe and one for others.  Antisemitic canard, like any stereotype - have a basis in some fact.

I know most people are too stupid to separate anti-Zionist Control of Government arguments from some irrational, global antipathy to Jewish people. 

 

I'm not going to coddle these people - the dumb, or the purposefully deceptive.

 

Send smarter trolls.

 

p.s. Jews can commit crimes.  Israeli Jews were deeply involved in running 9/11 and military intelligence and most intelligent researchers know it.

How long do you think flinging 'anti-semite' at the problem is going to work?

BurgundianRon's picture

I admire your tenacity. However, there was no attempt at obfuscation. I merely offered a philisophical rebuttal to your post. Further, because an individual may post infrequently does not make them a troll. I have come to ZH for years to read posts of differing opinions. Call it a quest for wisdom. I actually don't disagree with your comment. There are indeed extreme right wing zionist Jews (and non-jew zionists), here in America, whom would place Israel a priority over the US. They are the minority however, as they are in Israel. The reason I posted a 100 year old passage was to demonstrate that the power and influence of the jews, perceived or real, has been pondered by thinkers for millennia. 

You are so sure their influence is a negative for our country. I beleive the Mark Twain passage requires one to think about that assertion.

Your beliefs are firm and I don't want to change them. With that said, most of our beliefs are not based in truth or science. They are based on selective filtering of information, emotion and experience. The search for truth is all I seek. My beliefs are as flawed as yours. If you took my post as an accusation of anti-semitism, I apologize for the offense. 

PS - Never heard of hasbara before - which is why I come to ZH!

No problem, just stay off our roads, get your own army, pay us back for teaching you to read and write, oh pay us back for all that research that went into developing many of the products you use today; you get the picture.

Renounce citizenship.  Done that.  No more loot left for Americans anyhow.  USA sucks from now on.   The gov only wants your money.  And to spy on ya with drones and Silicon-valley-produced cyber-surveillance.  Get out while the going is possible.  Get gold, and a kalaschnikov, and get out.  It is the only way now.
