President Obama To Sermonize On Unspeakable Sequester Evil - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture





 

We suspect that if one combines all the most apocalyptic scenes from 'Day After Tomorrow', 'Armageddon', 'Planet of the Apes', and '2012', then President Obama's address (scheduled for 1045ET) on the impact of the sequester will come close. Of course, he could merely comment on the fact that we need to cut spending (not slow spending growth) in order to revert to sustainability but we suspect this is not 'silver linings playbook'. Young children and pets should probably be removed from the room as our leader explains just how cataclysmic things are going to get unless we all just get along... As a gentle reminder, here is the very same President threatening to veto any effort to stop spending cuts - oh well, it seems there really are no easy off-ramps.

 

As a reminder:

 

"I will veto any effort to get rid of the automatic spending cuts... No easy off-ramps on this one. We need to keep the pressure up to compromise. Not turn off the pressure. Only way the spending cuts will not take place is if congress gets back to work and agrees on a balanced plan to reduce the deficit by at least $1.2 trillion. That is what they need to do. That’s the job they promise to do"

- Barack Obama, November 21, 2011

 

Fast forward to....

With our economy poised to continue to strengthen this year, the President will make clear that we can’t see another self-inflicted wound from Washington. The President will urge Congress to come together and act to ensure these devastating cuts to defense and job-creating programs don’t take effect.

- White House statement, February 5, 2013

.... and

"The threat of massive automatic cuts have already started to affect business decisions.  Deep indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security, will cost us jobs and it will slow down our recovery.... It’s not the right thing to do for the economy, it’s not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. And the good news is this doesn’t have to happen.... [Congress] should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay the economically damaging effects of the sequester for a few more months until Congress finds a way to replace these cuts with a smarter solution.

- Barack Obama, February 5, 2013

Prepared text of Barack Obamney's speech:

 

"Forget that bullshit speech I made as a senator in 2006. We need to ensure more debt-derived fiat money is given freely to the banking-WallStreet-Defense complex that owns me, your duly elected Congress, federal & state level regulators, and the judiciary branch of your government, bitchez."

Up His.  And up Congress'.  Automatic sequesters appear to be the ONLY way to cut (growth of) spending.  America got what they wanted when they chose Him, or so they think.  Not my president, not my Congress, not my banksters.

It's interesting how cuts to GOVERNMENT are construed as hurting the economy. This is real 'plantation' thinking.

$85 billion in cuts is one month of QE. It's navel lint.  They need to talk at least a couple $Trillion for any 'recovery' allusion to be less than glib. 

"Failed presidency" was in the bag regardless of whoever took office. 

It's so UNNECESSARY.

Whether a defense contractor that lives or dies on making essentially wealth-destroying (and pollticially destabilizing, in many cases) products in 100% government-funded contractual batches, or the now 4th generation welfare-dependent children somewhere in America (which means that their great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, and now they have all received welfare)...

....plantation thinking indeed.

I am thinking of the DSM type definition.   Obama is not delusional.   He knows he is taking down the US and the former colonial powers of the developed world by allowing Congress to expand spending and debt.   As to drone strikes this isn't the first president who has presided over US controlled assets or proxies killing FOREIGNERS.    It is the 45th president who has done so, and I'm OK with that for the most part.   There is no such thing as international law and the UN is a horrible joke, as is national sovereignty...OTHER nations's sovereignty that is to say.

It is obvious that (1) he is high, literally, and (2) the speech was prepared for him by the military-contractor-financial-industrial complex. FTEs will be protected at all costs. Departments have plans to deal with sequestration which involve saving FTEs and cutting travel, office, and ... contractors. That last one is why Obama was told to read this speech.

All of this is by design within our one party system. Life would be no different today under Romney or McCain. The need for credit markets to expand and the inability for them to do it on their own is baked into our system. Politics is ALL theater. Republican opposition is theater. Joe congressman from the 10 district in some random state may not realize it... but that only makes for better theater. The talking head on MSNBC or Fox News may not realize it... but that too makes for better theater. And certainly the majority of mouth breathing Americans who sport an "end this war" bumper sticker next to an Obama one... or the brain dead idiots on the right who believe we went to war with Iraq because of WMD... those idiots don't understand the theater either. Fock all of them.

Smedley Butler's observation that the US military is a thug for Wall Street... premeditated entries into WWI and WWII... we didn't need to NUKE men, women and children to end the war with Japan, the whitewashing of the JFK assassination, MK Ultra, Bay of Pigs, Gulf of Tonkin, America defaults - closing of the gold window, Ronald Reagan's handlers (speed it up ronnie.... oh... um... ok), Gulf War propaganda, Banking Modernization Act, etc, etc, etc.

I shudder thinking back to the arguments that I had where I was happily on one side of the Hegelian dialectic.  

Keep up the good work.  Eventually all who keep learning will come to the conclusion.  

Most of our entire lives were a carefully constructed lie.  
And most of that lie was done by each and every one of us every day.

My favorite line from V:

"How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror."

But most of the pain goes away eventually, and it gets replaced by anger and a motivation to lead others toward the truth.

He swore to carry out his father's life work you know, his father the enraged failed anti-colonialist pro-third world lefty.

Keep on trying to attach the evils of an entire corruptly designed system on one man.  You will find that once the men leave, the problems are not fixed.  The problems tend to compound. 

Are you not paying attention or do you just not recognize patterns?

I'll tell you the same thing I've stated before..It doesn't fucking matter if he is a puppet or if he was democratically elected....he is still an evil bastard. His pre-election commentary, that is so conveniently buried, has all been about weakening the U. S. To ignore that fact is pure idiocy.

Biggest problem for the Dems in 2014 will be Obamacare. For those old enough to remember, Hillary's attempt at healthcare reform (which didn't even become law) is what caused the Dems to lose the house in 1994. Obamacare will be something Dems will have to desperately run away from ("I voted no, don't you remember?") in 2014.

That's a key in his Alinksy playbook.   When he's not demonizing specific targets he's setting up strawman targets that don't exist to demonize.     A big part of his base enjoys hating his targets.

Hmm, the movie that comes to mind for me is Dr. Strangelove......with a few modifications.  Obama is "Major Kong" (yes, the irony is delicious...), and instead of an atomic bomb, he's riding a giant nuclear dildo with the name "Ben Bernanke" scrawled on the side.

Bob Woodward’s "The Price of Politics" extensively covers the President's introduction of the sequester as a tool that, at the time, he thought would beat the Republicans over the head if they failed to toe his line. Even though Bob is a facetime camera whore, he is Obama's little cuckold and lacks the balls to show up and tell the world how wrong this President is when he continues to act as though he had no role in introducing the sequester strategy. Crickets will be louder than those who dare challenge the leader.

Bob Woodward is just another leftist media whore. He made his chops taking down Nixon but only because Nixon was Republican. He sucks Obama and pronounces it "journalism". He wouldn't know journalism if Maureen Dowd fucked him in his patulous out-box.
