Live From DC, It's Obama's Second Inauguration Address

Tyler Durden's picture

The crowd is ready; the pundits are anxious; the country mostly watching American Idol on their DVR but in an understated moment in Washington D.C. Barack Obama is about to begin the 57th Inauguration (retail version following yesterday's 'real' version) to be followed, perhaps, by his "I have a drone..." address in remembrance of MLK Day...

What comes before genocide?

Gun control.

Yes. Where is that "peace dividend?" I thought we were due with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Whatever happened to that?

Yeah but you blew the line. Emmanuel means "God" or in Greek "God With Us."

Sure. Homo homo superior. Their rights above all.

Of course. Barry is a well-known homosexual in the Chicago bathhouse community. Apparently he likes to suck the cocks of older white gentlemen.

Or at least, that's what I heard.

What’s happening is not sustainable. America is hurdling toward an overturn. The more they pile it on, the harder it can swing back.

The reason America has Obama is that the political system is corrupt and the people can’t make their feelings known. But for these people to pound away at these issues thinking they have the support to do it, is going too far. Unbeknownst to them, they don’t have the support of the country.

A word that needs to be pounded into the head of every American, and every denizen of western civilization. Understand the purport bitches.

Did anybody hear he promised 'Changes' today or said something like 'Time to buy bond and house' or let's 'forward' over cliff? I did turn off tv when some ladies shown up.

Biden said he was PROUD to be the President!!!.

And this is the man in charge of Gun control proposals?.

He has a automatic timer on his cell, telling him where he lives, and a map.

WTF is this poet douche talking about?

The Second Rule's picture

Sheeeit. Want to know who'd I'd appoint Poet Laureate? I'd appoint Cormac McCarthy. And I'd have him read from Blood Meridian.

I agree with one thing wholeheartedly. We are priviledged to live in America, I've travelled the world. Some people live better (Swiss) but the vast majority live far worse. My 50 years in this country has taught me one thing. Once you get in, don't leave. Ever.

Key word: "privilege". And that's EXACTLY what they want to make it.

Get it?

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

"Communitarianism is the belief that individual and national sovereignty must be balanced against the needs of the global collective. Their entire foundation for forced social evolution rests on their Big Idea that all the world''s people will be "free" after everyone gives up any claims to their personal freedom. Defined as the new "spirit" of community, Communitarians believe they are leading mankind into an advanced moral and spiritual state of being. Across the globe, communitarian gurus promote a global program designed to create one big, planned, gated community. They call it sustainable community development."

~Niki Raapana


Time to get on the bus (and sit in the back) silly libertardians.


Sustainable my ass....


Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

These guys sound good on the surface then I read stuff like this.


The enjoyment of liberty requires a healthy social order. If the quest for individual freedom and autonomy is pushed too far, society suffers. The resulting social disorder–manifested in such problems as runaway crime, declining public institutions, economic exploitation, eroding manners, and disrespect for of our common civic space–impinges on our liberty. If our streets our unsafe, our schools and other public institutions neglected, and our attitudes toward one another self-seeking and uncivil, our freedom is diminished.


Last time I checked individual liberty works when the people practicing it also have a common moral ground which in turn creates social order.

Of relevance considering the inauguration is taking place on MLK day.


NDAA Would Have Sent MLK to Gitmo, Says Cornel West

Firebrand black activist Dr. Cornel West gave a speech at the Tavis Smiley Presents Poverty In America series on Thursday that may surprise libertarians – in how much they agree with the "socialist radical."...

...Decrying the erosion of civil liberties today, Dr. West loudly lamented the "crypto-fascist" state developing in America – contrasting the federal government to crack addicts, whom he said at least "are honest about their addiction. The White House is addicted to power!"...


...In particular, he described the National Defense Authorization Act as a possible tool of government oppression, pointing out that Martin Luther King Jr. was under federal surveillance from January 1956 until his death in April 1968.

Most alarming for Dr. West was that provisions of the NDAA could have been used to lock away MLK without "due process or judicial process" – because he had known links to a man then commonly called a terrorist and now referred to as a heroic freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela....

How could things get any worse; Jews own the country, and niggers run it.

bunnyswanson's picture

Americans have short memories.  Blocking immigration to the Jews during holocaust and the era of slave labor is not far from the thoughts of the African Americans or Jewish immigrants.  They have other things on their minds besides making this country a better case for American people.

This is the saddest day (1-21-13) in American history. The second saddest day was (1-20-09). It continues to be the grieving of a once proud Republic. The soul wrenching grip on many true Americans is not only that a non-vetted usurper has occupied the Oval office for a full fraudulent term, but the complicit CONgress and all leadership in DC are treasonous oath breakers. The sham of thinking there might be ONE leader to stand on Constitutional truth has been confirmed with yet another term for barry soetero as illegal liar-in-chief.

Nothing rips the righteous soul more than to see evil prevail. Especially when Christian professing members of CONgress voice their opposition to liberal policy but fail to even whimper the confirmed facts of forgery, fraud, ID theft, and hidden past of barry soetero, Soeborkah, Barack or whomever he might be. The intestinal contortions of the rampant flu going around is nothing compared to the contortions of sorrow, despair, depression and sickness of soul we are experiencing. The total depravity of an entire government body has manifested it's true face. The corruption Capital Washington, DC.

The oaths of EVERY member in office are blasphemous. The commitment to values, truth, and Constitutional adherence is a public disgrace and dishonor to the very ceremony it depicts. A shame on the sacred honor of founding Fathers of this Republic. The very office of president has been marred, effaced, scarred beyond recognition by a liar, fraud, and deceiver with a hidden past and a sinister plan for America the once beautiful beacon of freedom.

There will be no recovery without truth. There will be no recovery without CONVICTION. The saddest day in America will historically be 1-21-13. Save this comment board. Four years from now you'll see the Nation in a condition you never dreamed possible.

Another interesting observation concerning the inauguration and why it was on MLK day. MLK is now a federal holiday which means most people get the day off for work. What message would it send about his supporters if 600,000 showed up on a work day? Also the institutions which allow for the day off tend to lean left like universities and minority dominated businesses. Even in non minority dominated businesses black workers tend to be allowed to take the day off with pay while non blacks aren't. Y.M.M.V. but that has been what I've personally observed in many a case.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

You know if it was on a non holiday the implication would be those 600,000+ must be a bunch of unemployed dead beats. If you think about it, it is a shred move. It is all about image not substance.
