Tyler Durden's picture





 

The President will take questions from the White House reporters at 1030ET. Will he mention the equity market at all-time highs? The strength of the housing market? The 'rising' unemployment rate? The 'falling' macro economy?Or, just as we saw with Consumer Confidence, a lot of 'hope'...

His comments like those you pointed out are imho, laying out the groundwork for a slippery slope just waiting to gobble up the lone white wolf, pissed off him family got shit canned out of their house on illegal grounds and slapped in the face with a $300 "reparation" from the guilty banks while the consultants made off with over $2billion.

I recently watched Agenda:The Grinding Down Of America and it really opened my eyes as to what this socialist pos potus, and a seemingly endless supply of lackeys, have in store for the majority.

America is a fucking republic, not a god damned democracy, and for good reason, until it's not anymore.

I only hope and pray the corruption that has permeated every nook and cranny of the power structures in this once beloved, great country ends up being it's own demise. I really don't see how much more blatant, in-your-face nefarious corruption the system can handle.

I'm not an B. Hussein O. fan.

  That being said, if you don't agree with the bombardment/demilitarization of Syria, you haven't been paying attention for the past 35 years.

  Syria has been a hive, a breeding ground for terrorist groups and paramilitaries.  They're like Iran's stupider, younger brother that always gets caught.

"People don't seem intimidated going to Fenway Park." (Can people bring fucking pressure cookers into Fenway? What about allowing stormtroopers to enter their houses?)

"People calling me chicken little on sequestration but it has happened. Flight delays, meat inspectors, no White House tours. It all happened." (WTF? No White House tours are ruining our economy? Why not cut the White House parties instead?)

"Plenty of successes in the war on terror. We've entramped plenty of people all over the place. We can handle this." (I know I'm impressed.)

He blasted big business, Wall Street, big oil, General Motors, “excess profits,” “millionaires” and the “wealthy.”

He called out the “corporation executive” for not paying his “fair” share.

He attacked “GOP” tax cuts that “spare the rich” and “benefit millionaires.”

He advocated wealth redistribution from greedy “corporations” to “health insurance” and “public works projects.”

He described himself as “progressive,” while his detractors accused him of being a communist.

He adopted slogans like “Forward” and “Change.” He wanted to transform America through what he called “fundamental change.”

He was skeptical of preachers and their effect on God-and-gun clinging Americans, and saw the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his vision for the state. He argued that Christians should support his ideas and enthusiastically sought the support of the “social justice” Religious Left. Moreover, many people were unclear about his personal religious beliefs, including whether he was a Christian.

Who is this man?

If you answered “Barack Obama,” you’re only half right. The answer is Frank Marshall Davis, Hawaii mentor to a young Barack Obama, and Communist Party member 47544.

Next, in the herding division, we have Barry, the Nigerian-Irish Mix from Hawaii, owned by a Warren Buffett syndicate and shown today by another talented Jewish handler, Jack Lew.  Barry is a little narrow at the shoulder versus the breed standard, but his flexibility is world class.  Where Barry really excels is in the obedience ring; he is the reigning and multi-year world champion in obedience. 

 

One thing we have learned, Barry is always able to give a good show for his owners. Looking ahead, they have crossed Barry with a much larger black pure-bred bitch, hoping to improve the line, but we will need to wait and see if the obedience trait breeds true.

 

Barry will go down in history as the first champion from goat herding lines to reach the pinnacle of sheep herding.

He never gives a press conference. The fact he's giving one means it is either;
A) He's getting out in front of something terrible to try to shape the narrative on it.
B) He's campaigning for some political agenda. My guess would be immigration.

What is certain though is that the questions and answers have already been chosen so don't expect anything exciting from that aspect.

Mr. President:  We spend billions on homeland security and this did not prevent the Boston bombing.  When are you going to replace the head of Homeland Security for this FAILURE?

And another $400 million for the Muslim Brotherhood so they can oppress their Women, Christians, Jews, and anyone not believing in their "peaceful" religion.

Wonder if he'll mention money and aid to the Jihadists within 60 seconds of talking about the Boston loonies.

I mean like...since we are supporting terrorists - paying people to attack us....we may as well let the immigrants in for free.  Do I have that right?  Maybe we should be paying the immigrants to come and again NOT to bomb us.  We obviously have control of the situation.  More porno connections and bandwidth for the FBI and DHS are clearly what is needed.

See, You fell for it.

With millions of people calling bullshit on Boston, they subtlety "reframed" the propaganda in "welfare benefits." Now people are talking about the welfare supported "terrorists" which means people have been tricked into accepting the story that these guys did it.

It's called "reframing," a propaganda mindfuck.

Either one believes these guys did it and the welfare angle is just more shit on the stick or they didn't and the welfare angle is a propaganda redirect.

That they have resorted to reframing means that Boston IS bullshit. hujel

Business Insider is not a profitable operation. They have a massive cash burn rate.

Business Insider isn't designed to make money, and no-one cares if it does (although, presumably, it'd be nice). I strongly suggest you look into who is bank-rolling it.

 

 

Then again, take a look at any broadsheet these days for the same problem. The internet and craigslist (etc) slaughtered the business model (from $100's billions revenue > $100's millions ~ efficiency @ work).

Business Insider has about 100 employees and is expected to bring in more than $15 million in revenue this year, though it may not reach profitability, said the person, who asked not to be named because the information is confidential."

The best that I can say about Obama is that he is an incompetent Keynesian.

But, since I believe that he is very samart, I have to conclude that he is a socialist in capitalist clothes.

Consequently I believe that he is working towards the collapse of the US economy with the goal to convert it into socialism.

And that he is, merely, using our Keynesian ideologues to do the economical destruction for him.

Why does this most powerful country continue to elect these psycopaths?

Bush, Clinton, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy ...??!!!

You need to stop throwing about buzzwords like "socialist" and think things through...

A "socialist" would not allow the ass-rape (sorry for the graphic) of the US taxpayers by its multinationals, nor the REVERSE-socialism (aka Fascism) to subsidize the crony-Capitalism at $85B/mo ($1T/yr). A true socialist is anti-war.

Sometimes I don't know who is more full of sh*t: the sock-puppet Obama, or some of the people blogging here.

If the Tylers are putting in "sweat-equity" into their posts, then so should We The Bloggers. Educate more, confuse/distract less.

Indeed. Socialism has nothing to do with what's happening in the World.

No country had a Socialist government so far. Socialism is about sharing, about the means of production in the hands of those who produce the real thing.

Nothing like that has happened in History except for a few cooperative experiences and some family farms or little family business.

Using the language properly it's important for understanding, knowledge, freedom.
