Obama To Deliver Statement At 3:15 PM - Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

The Newtown, CT elementary school killing has already eclipsed Columbine in terms of sheer tragedy and loss of life, and may end up being of the most brutal slayings of innocent life, in US history. As expected, Obama is about to make a statement, most likely on today's tragic events.

oh boy I can hardly wait.

looks like the markets aren't though.

..oh boy, not even starting the first sentence and I can feel it coming: "we need better gun control". Egads.

He is pretending to wipe away tears. 

I wonder if he cries after his drones bomb children and women in Pakistan.

If so he must never stop crying.

He's generally a good actor, but this was an epic fail.  The guy shamelessly pretended to have tears; a big fucking cocktail of LOLOL/WTF/OMG.  What a douche.

It might soothe people more if he just tendered his resignation...


Oh wait... Next in line would be Biden & after that would be an Oompa Loompa... Face it folks ~ We're fucked...

Behold what is to follow, legislatively, as totally predictable (even though the shooter was, based on the latest reports, using firearms that weren't lawfully his & was "developmentally disabled"):

"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before."

--Rahm Emanuel, "Chicago Guy"

"and may end up being of the most brutal slayings of innocent life, in US history."


Sorry Tyler, fail.  Did you happen to get a 9/11 body count?

The adjective most was modifying the adjective brutal, which is a qualitative, not quantitative, assessment.

Interesting why they haven't banned air planes.

Interesting why we haven't banned government. Goverments have killed, by most estimates, somewhere north of 150 million people under their jurisdiction. Not counting war.

Don't forget "Fast and Furious".  How many Mexicans died again???

@ Mr. Lennon Hendrix,


Children are slaughtered everyday in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. by our beloving Nobel Peace Prize Lead Government and not one of the socalled bleeding heart "liberal or conservative" MSM sheds a tear.

The MSM phony act as well as this Certified War CRIMINAL fools no one.

Didn't [yet] capitalize on the tragedy by calling for stricter gun laws.  My guess is that he won't wait long though.  He is, after all, crafting legislation "under the radar."

Same here. Normally I don't give in to the panic buy urges, but this time it IS different. Putting these poor kids in the debate means emotion will rule. Combine that with the "mandate" meme, and this guy has a green light to crush liberty as he pleases.

@ SeverinSlade,

Spot on my brother!!! 

A sad day in Connecticut indeed..No matter how you look at it, the world is getting worse anyways with violence.  Remember guns don’t kill people, people kill people.  Although this sadness has occurred and people died, if we outlaw guns, the only ones with guns are going to be the outlaws and, The Criminal Federal Goverment Globalist NWO Minions.  Today the shooters were the outlaws.

Guns baad, gold baad, debt good....move along.

kliguy38's picture

Yes....keep repeating it over and over sheeple. It will keep you soothed as we implement the next stage of your "protection".....

Chupacabra-322's picture

@ kliguy38,

The PsyOp runs deep.  Remember this:

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

“We have to be repetitive about this,” he said.  “We need to do this every day of the week, and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

Despite what you guys think he's not going to take your guns away.  He's too centrist and quite frankly too cowardly to even attempt it.

But mark my words, greater controls are coming.  Get your guns and ammo, and protect them.

GubbermintWorker's picture

Please remember where he got his beginnings.....Chicago...where only the police and criminals are allowed guns.


Oh, that statement was redundant, wasn't it?

BULLSHIT. Everything that Obama said about guns before he was elected President had a single, unifying theme: guns should not be in the hands of regular citizens.

So now that he's POTUS, he's changed his mind? No, up until a few weeks ago, Obama avoided addressing guns because he knew that it was political suicide. Now that he's untouchable, you can bet your last dollar that he is going to "dance in the blood of the victims" (as Mike Vanderboegh so eloquently puts it) and use this incident to advance one of his most cherished political goals: disarming americans.

AFter all, this is the sick, twisted fuck who brought you Fast and Furious, and used Executive Privilege to dead-end the investigation into that despicable operation.

knukles's picture

approved the creation of, maintains and orders extra judicial killings of American citizens (but wants muzzie terrs to get trials...)

orders constant drone killings of innocents aka too fucking bad, dude

expanding special ops aggressively


Questionman's picture

Instead of connecting the dots to the point of insanity, maybe your disgusting, inhuman ass should present some evidence before he runs his mouth. He makes 4 assertions about this speech with little/no evidence: 1. They're coming for your guns 2. Tears are fake (when in general he may just be wiping his eyes to prevent tears) 3. Entire thing is a mind control experiment (come on man we're talking about 5-10 year? old kids) 4. They are using it for political purposes. No evidence. Of course RFK assassin mentioned.


YOU ARE? MENTALLY INSANE. You are making everything out to seem like some conspiracy when it's not. Please shut the fuck up.

I would normally think someone obtuse who failed to see a level of hypocrisy, given that Obama's drone attacks have killed 10 times as many Pakistani children as died in Connecticut.

But, judging by your ad hominem rant, there may, in your case, be another explanation.

pan-the-ist's picture

Seems to me that the comment was bat shit crazy.  Where is your evidence Obama plans to take your guns away?  On a side note, I will point out that even if that teacher was packing, the killers body armor would have made concealed carry moot.  On the otherhand, if you would have taken his gun away, he may have just turned himself into a human bomb.  These things are like forces of nature, like earthquakes.

All your guns are belong to us!

Some of the script for this announcement was taken from old Bush announcements. The only thing new is the tears.

Mr. 666's

"tears" (odummer's "tears") are as fake as those he "shed" in front of his unions buddies right after the election...

There is a big world out there if you just took off your blinders and looked for it.

...and nobody there was killed with a firearm.

Wow! (44 of which 38 were students)

And I thought the worst massacre back then was this...

 Maybe the Waco Branch Davidian police assault deserves mention,

 as well as Sand Creek.

Maybe he will come out and say that because we have lied to everyone about the current depression we are in, that maybe people don't know how to handle their lives going to shit all the while hearing how good things are, and that he is sorry?

Politicians tossing in their "I feel your pain" BS is too much.
Just shut the hell up already.


Spastica Rex's picture

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

As the country declines with financial, moral and social decay we can expect to see a great deal of violence, this shooting shouldn't surprise anyone that has been paying attention.
