    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

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.

Forward (over the cliff).

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.

If the American people really sent politicians to DC to get that list of things done they deserve a shitty economy, no jobs, decimated middle class, stupid kids, a declining standard of living and debt imprisonement.

"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 world was bipolar during the Cold War.   Then it was unipolar (US as sole superpower).  Now we are transitioning back to bipolar/multipolar.

But its not happened by accident, or 'naturally'.  Its very much engineered.

Absolutely correct.

But not what these marxistic globalists say shocks me. What really shocks me every day, is the stupidity of the sheeple recognizing absolutely nothing, and those who recognize that something is fishy, they simply don't care because all that matters to them is bread and games.

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.

"Not filing your taxes?  Not paying for Obama(don't)care?  Then no food ration book for you!"

Expect to see this within five years.  You heard it here first.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_R._Taylor

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.

You guys might be onto something..
