Obama: "Stop Focusing On The Bloggers"

Tyler Durden's picture


Fast forward to 5'40" in Obama's speech delivered earlier today.

It is here that he makes the following statement:

"Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul."

We will ignore the irony of a president talking about "profiting from conflict" when less than two months ago the world was on the verge of World War III over a fabricated, false flag-driven invasion "confirmed" by YouTube clips, and designed entirely by this administration to further (and profit) its Saudi and Qatari interests, and which was halted in the last minute thanks to none other than the Russian president, and ask: instead of stopping to "focus on bloggers" who merely do the math in a world in which math is long forgotten, let's for one month, week or day, simply halt the Federal Reserve's circular monetary authority which now purchases virtually all issued US Treasurys that carry any duration risk.

We wonder what that would do to interest rates, to the US debt-issuance and deficit-funding machinery, to the already crippled reserve status of the dollar, to the real default threat of a country that has long passed its Minsky Ponzi point, and to the same once great nation that cemented its world-dominance not thanks to a central bank funding a government which has spent in the past 5 years almost as much as in all of its prior history, but due to the encouragement of the entrepreneurial spirit, to minimal government meddling in (and illegal supervision of) all affairs of man and commerce, to allowing not only the reward of success but the risk of failure, and most importantly to allowing capitalism to reign free once again, if only for a brief period of time.

We will not even engage the question of just how much "wealth effect" has been left on the table with the Fed not actively monetizing all US debt in 95 years of its 100 years of existence, and certainly not engage in trite religious sermonizing written by a recently graduated drama major-cum-teleprompter operator.

The easiest way to know the truth is to assume that every word that comes out of Dear Leader's mouth is a lie. Further, the MSM perpetuates his lies. The bloggers and "talking heads on radio" Dear Leader disparages are helping bring the truth to light.

Even better, "focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do". Last I looked he won with less than 50% of the popular vote. That's less than a majority right? Maybe our lord saviour obammy was thinking of plurality? But wait, he's an Ivy league fuck, never mind.

Barry, this might be a more compelling argument if any of those things were actually being done. 

I'm tired of this 1984 newspeak.  I've seen how effective these sock puppet commenters are at derailing and demoralizing thinking debate, and I'm turning it around.  I think some people should consider Alinsky type tactics to combat the propaganda, but base ours on truth.  Comments like:

"Selfish Progressives want to steal from working-class families and give the money to greedy insurance companies."

This seems to shut them up in a hurry. Try it.  It's fun.

"Last I looked he won with less than 50% of the popular vote"

51.1% of the 57.2% of the eligible voters who bothered to vote in this rigged game in 2012, meaning he won 29.2% of the votes from all eligible voters, only slightly over 1 in 4.  

So, whenever you hear about some kind of "mandate from the people" like I recall hearing from Dubya', you should know what BS that is.

Unquestioningly fail.. unquestioned failure..  (sp)  maybe not..

Double the debt, destroy the economy and global reserve monetary status, export the jobs, expertise and prosperity.. knock the USA down to also-ran status..,.

Destroy the integrity of the borders, flood illegals in.. destroy traditional morality..

But strengthen  the surveillance, police and military state – quite a list of accomplishments.

It looks like his five year plan worked after all – he just was not telling the truth about it.

The next and most critical focus of centralized control will be food --- count on it.  First the means of production, then the means of distribution.  Government monopolization of the food supply will be the last and ultimate method of total control of a cowed and dependent population.

He received a B.A. degree in political science from Davidson College and a law degree from the University of Virginia. In 1976, after passing the bar examination, Taylor became a staff attorney for the FDA, where he was executive assistant to the Commissioner.

Between 1996 and 2000, after briefly returning to King & Spalding, he then returned to Monsanto to become Vice President for Public Policy.

On July 7, 2009, Taylor once again returned to government as Senior Advisor to the FDA Commissioner.[21] And on January 13, 2010, he was appointed to another newly created post at the FDA, this time as Deputy Commissioner for Foods.

That control is already there.  God help you if somebody finds some Roundup Ready genetics in your field if you didn't purchase the seed directly from Monsanto.  If you're a small farmer, expect the FDA and the USDA subject you to scrutiny that is unwarranted, but if you're a big outfit, expect a slap on the wrist for a big fuckup that kills people.  The kind of system that we have now wouldn't be possible without Congress regulating it in a way that gives massive advantages to big ag and regulators turning their heads when it is big ag that fucks up.

What is: Currency debasement?

But don't worry, the Fed has a dual mandate, that makes no mention of currency debasement.

And also, the Fed is just providing liquidity, and is engaged in Quantitative Easing.   I mean you would have to be an idiot to think currency debasement and quantitative easing are the same thing.   Other wise why not just call it what it is?

@ john39,

Moments before House members passed a bill to raise the debt ceiling, a woman later identified as stenographer Diane Reidy approached the microphone at the Speaker’s Lobby in a trance-like state and began to shout.
“He will not be mocked, don’t touch me, he will not be mocked,” Reidy ranted, adding, “The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God, it never was.”
Officials begin to remove Reidy as she screamed, “It never was, had it been, it would not have been….the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God, you cannot serve two masters.”
“Praise be God, Lord Jesus Christ,” she added.
Reidy also reportedly said “A House divided cannot stand — you are all sons of the devil!”
According to Rep. Joaquin Castro, the woman “had a crazed look” on her face. “It was very disturbing for the members of Congress,” he said.
“I had passed her obviously all the time on the House floor, and she smiled a few times, she seemed nice, and according to other members who have been around longer, she seemed nice,” Castro told reporters.

I believe that was one of the most courageous acts weve seen to date. She spoke clearly and made very good and appropriate statements to the truth. She has seen the tyranny, upclose and personal. I bet she could tell some real stories about the collusion, the game of good cop bad cop they play so well. I find it interesting how in this article they keep saying she seeemed so nice..... not but one stated she was dead on to the truth? Yup, she will dissapear or be silenced thru drugs. God bless her and I hope some on the side of truth go to her aid, NOW.

she touched on something pretty important.  the powers that be have their own religion, that they scarcely even try to hide.  anyone who spends just a bit of time working on it can see it.   but the masses just don't want to believe it.   until people understand what is really happening in the background, current events will not make much sense.  there is a war for control going on, has been for a long time.  look for it to heat up, sooner rather than later.

In her rant, I think she made the mistake of believing 'they' were trying to serve two masters.

In truth, they serve only one; the money master.

Bloggers are now an essential source of information, especially for specialized material.  MSM covers little of interest to me and mostly lies about it anyway.

Zero Hedge is one of the few examples of where you can get a great overview of everything that is important in finance and politics.  Natch, President Obama deos not read it...

I can't read, watch or listen to MSM.  Bloggers may or may not have there own agendas, but they are the only source of truth if you have a good filter.  Many people I talk to still want to consider Obama a reasonable person who is handcuffed by congress, but these outrageously hypocritical and sanctimonious comments should make it obvious that he is among the worst of the bunch.  Just as much of a sell out, and a much better pitchman than most.

EVERYTHING he does and says is for well-calculated a reason. 

In spite of our current culture (in education, the MSM, companies) that is against bullying, defamation, ridicule or slander, it is interesting and noteworthy how he cherry-picks the right weasel-words that amount to the same:  Ridiculing and marginalizing the opposition to his Fascist/Feudal agenda.  History is full of this.

Beware, the stage is being set for more.  He feels that he has the political capital -- even in the absence of financial capital -- to railroad his owns and his masters' agenda.  He expects to be Buffetted by all headwinds from his crony capitalist pals, and protected from 'side-winds' from his Praetorian army.

It was raised by $890 Billion...or by $890 Milliard to the people in the rest of the World. The Democrats wanted it higher than that.


If they do not know the difference between an American Billion and what they define a Billion as, then they think that our problem is 1000 times greater than it actually is.


We, in the United States, consider One Thousand Million to be equal to One Billion. One Thousand Million is One Milliard to the rest of the World.


The rest of the World considers that One Billion to be One Million Million.


Just a "Heads Up" and "Be Aware of the Fact" moment.


But 1000 times infinity is still infinity. The problems are just unsolvable. I will grant you that.


But we need to be accurate.

The only people who talk about "milliards" (and "billiards", presumably?) are antiquated and clueless British navel-gazers who still reminisce fondly of their dead Empire and their parastic and useless royal family.

Oh, and while (not "whilst", which I think is some kind of archaic card game) you are getting up to speed on proper English, not every vacation is a "holiday", just as not every dessert is a "pudding".  There is also no such thing as a "vodkar and tonic", just as there are no such places as "Chinar" or "Indiar".

But as kooky as your British slang is, at least you can take some consolation in the fact that you do not speak that garbled goobledygook that is Australian.
