Obama's "We Must Kick The Can" Presser - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


Sequester, Schmequester. It would seem Q4's initial warning from the DoD was enough to get the DC-ites scrambling. President Obama takes to the teleprompter to suggest (we assume) humbly that we swap today's sequester plans for tomorrow's 'balanced' slower rate of spending growth (oh and we are sure some new taxes). And yay verily, all will be well once again in the land of make-believe fiscal policy...

"My fellow Americans, we've thought long and hard about this, and decided we are such cowardly pussies that we are going to redouble our efforts to enslave future generations with an unpayably large debt burden instead of taking responsible steps to deal with our own problems. In short, our political livelihood and comfort are far more important than your children living free, so therefore we take these steps today to further sell them into slavery and line our own pockets with electronically generated money that represents complete and unabashed theft of the current and future value of the savings and labor of you, the American people. Wait, oh shit, my teleprompter got hacked by Anon!"

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."


Senator Barack Obamney (D-IL)

I've said it before and I'll say it again it looks like some of the real left liberals not the faux-liberals are starting to wake up and smell the coffee. Real liberals most certainly do not like wall street, war and violation of civil rights. The fabian socialists like Obama and the other faux-liberals are not in the same ideological league.

To make my point.

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!"

"Love and justice is always weak ... [which is why] first you have to have a suspicion of government. This is why I resonate with my conservative brothers!" West said.

Continuing, he pointed out, "governments can be repressive! Vicious! Ugly! Violate your rights! Violate your liberties! Crush your people! Generate the propaganda! We need that sensibility too!"

Dr. West says that he understands the growing collusion between corporate America and the federal government to be a form of creeping crypto-fascism, a security state where rights are routinely violated and ignored – not so dissimilar to the plight of the black community today. 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

Surprise! IRS Calculates Cheapest ‘Obamacare’ Plan Will Average $20,000 Per Family

Finally we can officially declare the middle class FUCKED, and for good. Nice job boys and girls..


When the Obama White House and Congress passed The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (i.e. “Obamacare”), we clearly recall being told that the bill would save Americans money.

Yet, as reports, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in a regulation issued Wednesday “assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.”

Wait, what?

Yes, while explaining the penalty for not purchasing government insurance, the IRS calculates that the average annual cost for a family will be at about $20,000.

“The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan,” reports.

“The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan,” the report adds.

Wait a minute. What is the exact language of the IRS regulation?

“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation states.


“Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare — after Silver, Gold, and Platinum,” CNS explains. “Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.”

Thanks, I will read it.

Imagine a family of four in their 20s who is pretty healthy being asked to pay $20K for medical insurance.  Even with help from the employer for funding, that will put a dent in your home budget.  

I pay that much for our family and an employee now and both of us are in our late 50s.  We own a small business.

I am probably going to have to opt out of providing insurance to employees.  What a mess.

In a visit with my Dr. last week he seemed to really want to talk about Obamacare.  Some interesting concerns he had (we didn't talk for long).  The "Good Dr./Bad Doctor" list has some pretty fucked up metrics.  For example, he mentioned, if he prescribes medication and the patient doesn't purchase it (or purchases it for cheaper than a threshhold [Walmart]) then that's a point to end up on the "Bad Doctor" list.  He also mentioned that he is allowed certain percentages for patients to refuse preventative care.  He used colonoscopies as the example.  If his refusals for that procedure exceed a certain percentage he is once again on the "Bad Doctor" list.  Seems pretty fucked for the government to be instituting these sort of standards.

No it is not this is exactly how fabian socialism works. Coercion will be the classification along with fines all while having the old system subsidize the new. You do a gradual shift from one to the next and at the same time you've brought what is left of the decimated middle class into the entitlement state. EBT entitlements for the poor, health care for the middle, free money for the banks and wall street, the list goes on and on.

You know, if the US was going to be flushed down the crapper, wouldn't it just be perfect if a black muslim dude was in charge? Just saying.

Obama is America's chosen leader of her advanced democracy, i.e., mob rule.

For “it is an ancient insight,” writes Clarence Carson, “that democracy is mob rule.”

It was the selling of democracy in the latter part of the nineteenth century and in the twentieth century that connected America’s limited government to “representative” government – culminating in WWI bloodletting that “made the world safe for democracy."

It is now culminating in full-fledged socialism.

Writes Carson:

“The foundation of liberty was in constitutionalism which was itself based on the natural law philosophy. The practical defense of liberty lay in the separation of powers within the government, a separation that would have the tendency to restrain and limit government. Popular or representative government can, at best, only reflect the prevailing mood among the populace, whatever that may be…"

Now, all political decisions are made on the basis of a manipulated popular support by a state-controlled media and a co-opted party system. And if that doesn’t work, the borders are opened to invite potential welfare recipients with an offert to vote themselves Americans’ property. Why?

The practical effect of this says Carson, is “to concentrate all power in the legislatures and to negate the restraints upon government that rested upon a separation of powers.”

Now, empowered by the collective vote of his constituency, Obama is concentrating that power further solely into the executive branch while the bankers cover his back. Thus, the vote is being used to force the productive individual not only to yield his property but his conscience to the tyranny of the mob.

Why? Keynesianism is soft communism.

Polls amongst the higher echelons of bankers and celebrities show that the economy is truly improving. Thus, problem solved. All hail Barry-- 4 more years! 4more years! U.S.A! U.S.A! Can we have a singer sing the national anthem everyday before the day starts? It'll do the country some good to remind them why we pay money into a broken crony system.

Obama should have a sign made and placed on his desk in the Oval Office: The buck stops somewhere else.

Can't the TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States) just deliver the speech instead?  I grow weary of hearing this bankster step-n-fetchit open his cock holster.

There is no way this guy won legitimately. The fraud must have been rampant.

It's not just a make believe fiscal policy, the biggest problem with cutting the military is that you can't keep stretching it thinner and thinner, while also getting ready to chop the defense bugdet.  So at some point, the Joint Chiefs are going to say to Obama that 'Sorry Mr. President, we do not have enough assets to go where you want us to go, and win the fight you want us to fight."  Presidents seem to have no problem getting us into conflicts that are unwinable - and just linger for years in a stalemate.  But there is NOTHING a President hates more than to get us into a conflict that we LOSE.

It is by design it is not a mistake. Weaken the military while building up the civilian force like DHS. This way once the low information and distracted people finally realize they been enslaved and start revolting the military will be too weak to step in and stop the last stage of the fabian socialist's dismantling of America and the Constitution.

Tell all the shit-for-brain sheeple to stop voting for any candidate that has a law degree. They wonder why there is so much incompetence, yet they can't see what is clearly in front of them.


These lawyers are trained moral and intellectual criminals. They are trained not to do what is right but by what is expediant and relative to them. The law schools are a training ground for corrupt politics and deception.
