    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

What Is Obama So Afraid Of?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I saw this memo on the official whitehouse.gov website the other day, but I was traveling and never had a chance to post it.  I figured it would be too late by now, yet I am still not seeing it being widely discussed.  It implies that the Obama Administration may be very worried about the truth getting out about all of their crimes, potentially via leaks from high places.  Read it for yourself, but the language is pretty clear.  Here are some excerpts:

This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

 

BARACK OBAMA

Oh and this came out the day before Thanksgiving.  How cute.  As someone said on twitter today, if telling the truth endangers “national security,” then we are doing national security wrong.

 

Full memo here:

Presidential Memorandum -- National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

 

SUBJECT: National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs

 

This Presidential Memorandum transmits the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (Minimum Standards) to provide direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security. These threats encompass potential espionage, violent acts against the Government or the Nation, and unauthorized disclosure of classified information, including the vast amounts of classified data available on interconnected United States Government computer networks and systems.

 

The Minimum Standards provide departments and agencies with the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs. These elements include the capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information; monitor employee use of classified networks; provide the workforce with insider threat awareness training; and protect the civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.

 

The resulting insider threat capabilities will strengthen the protection of classified information across the executive branch and reinforce our defenses against both adversaries and insiders who misuse their access and endanger our national security.

I also seem to remember Marc Faber saying some secret would be revealed about the POTUS, that "where there is smoke, there is fire" and that POTUS would not finish his second term.   Faber never specified.  Any guesses what this could be?

That Obama was an MK Ultra test subject during those years that have fallen off the radar and have no corroborating documentation?

Canada walked in there believing it's own bullshit.  Such a bad business position to be in.  Reading the news out of the visit is was treated as warmly as any trojan horse would be.  Complete bust wasn't long after before Carney made a dash for the exit. 

 

The BRIC is making it pretty clear on how this is going to play out.  They need the MENA oil just as much as the US and Europe does. Otherwise they wouldn't be matching ship for ship, fire power for fire power from everyone minus Brazil.

Everyone that reads IEA production papers knows all the figures on consumption are based from 80's models ergo complete bullshit, just as much as India has some excellent Engineers to point out the costs and production problems with fracking and tar sands extraction in terms of eroie.

It's much more than a "chamber of commerce".

It's a competing currency ultimately.  Gold/silver redeemable likely, which would destory USD's reserve currency status instantly ...and destroy the American financial system ...and the American economy.

"Chamber of commerce" :)  Pretty funny.

The currency is indeed failing before our eyes, especially if it is true that pennies and nickels will no longer be minted next year.  By the way, love the cameltoe geezer.

Yes it is.  See this comment from yesterday.

And yes it is a nice avatar.  I looked thru a lot of photos to find it.  White lacy thong.  Perfect.

Oh, and how many nuclear powers do the BRICS have among them?  Enough to thumb their noses at America's military?

there is some question whether Obama will make it to the end of his first term, much less survive his second. Saturn over O's Neptune end of December 2012 is "a throne toppler". either way, "au bas" Obama.

I'll put this little bit of info with yours. . .

mercury (rules communications, travel, etc.) went retrograde (apparent "backwards") on election day.  last time that happened was the Gore-y hanging chad fiasco, which was "decided" in December by the Supremes - a coup of sorts.

mercury retrograde has a shadow period to cover when it goes direct, which it did on Monday, in scorpio (behind the scenes intrigue, certainly betrayal, sometimes death of a sort). . .

this current shadow period has until the December new moon 13 Dec. to return to the degree it went retrograde at.  the new moon has Uranus going retrograde - shocks 'n' surprises, unexpected information, etc.)

tl;dr

between now and 13 December, there well could be a resolve of the election outcome - it would take looking at individual birth charts to understand where it might play out - but yes, Obama's has a reality check incoming, of some sort.  things are very very dynamic in December. . .

So let me get this straight. The position of the planets at the time of you birth, effect all aspects of your personality and future actions for the rest of your life. After serious thought, I have to say it all makes complete rational sense.

dunno, you read your charts and I'll read mine, k?  you've ascribed a belief system I don't have.

all I'm doing is using math calculations to create a chart that shows the positions/degree of planets at the time/place of an individual or nation's birth/inception, then using archetypal descriptives that date back centuries, plus synthesis skills that vary with the individual astrologer - perspective, personal beliefs, intelligence, etc. - and relating the possibles.

it's kinda like. . . some of the charts you guys create to illustrate your points when trading, or. . .

not magic nor psychic, unless you're going the Mystic Meg route - how many dudes have websites with their readings of charts on them?  it's kinda like that.
