Nerd Prom Summary: Highlights From This Year's Obama Roast

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In theory, the media is supposed to keep any given administration, even that of hope and change, "honest", and to report its flaws, failings, criminality and hypocrisy. In practice, this never happens, since the bulk of US, and global, media outlets are owned by a handful of corporations which in turn do everything in their power to preserve the lucrative arrangement in which the administration pretends to administer, and the media pretends to do its job. 

With this kind of informational near-monopoly, corporations - and the media - are far more interested in perpetuating the crony-capitalist status quo, which in conjunction with Wall Street's bribery funding of the three branches of US government, has come to symbolize just how broken US governance has become.

For 364 days of the year, the theater that the press and the administration are on the opposite sides of the table, continues without a glitch. However, one day a year, during the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner, the facade falls and Obama, together with his fawning press corps, have a night of laughs in an Oscar-inspired night of self-congratularoty excess. Which, just like every other night in Washington, is at the taxpayers' expense.

Among the over 2000 "guests" enjoying the jokes were Jessica Simpson, Patrick Stewart, Matthew Morrison, Anna Chlumsky, Lindsey Vonn, Katharine McPhee, Jeremy Irvine, Lupita Nyong'o, Julianna Margulies, Sofia Vergara, Brad Paisley, Kevin Hart, Cynthia Nixon, Tim Tebow, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, J.C. Chasez, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Olivia Munn, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Fred Armisen, Richard Sherman and Harvey Weinstein.

The good news: the humor - written by others, of course - was good. Here are the highlights from last night's festivities.

First, Obama's punchlines reported by Reuters:

"In 2008 my slogan was, 'Yes we can.' In 2013, it was control-alt-delete," Obama joked to an audience also studded with film and television stars.

 

"At one point, things got so bad the 47 percent called Mitt Romney to apologize," he said, referring to 2012 presidential campaign scandal in which the Republican candidate was secretly taped saying that 47 percent of Americans have become reliant on government handouts.

 

The president highlighted some of the low points of his administration's last year, dwelling on the disastrous rollout of the website for his landmark health insurance reform legislation.

 

"Of course we rolled out HealthCare.gov. That could have gone better," he deadpanned.

 

Later he turned on Republican opponents in Congress who are clamoring to repeal the legislation despite higher than expected enrollment figures in the government health care exchanges: "How well does Obamacare have to work before you stop trying to repeal it?"

 

At the end of his speech, Obama turned the audience's attention to a video monitor, which failed to work. Kathleen Sebelius, the health secretary who announced her resignation this month after overseeing the botched rollout of Obamacare, stepped to the podium to try to fix the technical glitch.

 

Obama also took a swipe at Republicans for blocking his bid to raise the minimum wage. "If you want to get paid for not working you should run for Congress just like everyone else," he said.

 

In a self-deprecating crack at his own low popularity ratings, the president referred to his fellow Democrats not wanting to campaign with him for November congressional elections in a wistful joke involving one of his daughters: "I did notice the other day that Sasha needed a speaker for career day and she invited Bill Clinton."

 

"Let's face the facts, you'll miss me when I'm gone," Obama directed to the Fox News table. "It will be harder for you to convince Americans that Hillary was born in Kenya."

Some more from  USA Today:

When McHale took over duties, he aimed straight at Obamacare's launch.

 

"It was so bad!" he said from the stage. "I don't even have an analogy, because the website is now an analogy that people use to describe other bad things. 'Boy that latest Johnny Depp movie really healthcare.gov'd at the box office.' "

 

A few of McHale's other best lines:

  • On Chris Christie: "I promise that tonight will be amusing and over quickly. Just like Chris Christie's presidential bid."
  • On Rob Ford: "Between Rob Ford, Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz, you just want to tell Canada, 'Hey, hey, relax. We already have a Florida.' "
  • On Hillary running for office: Hillary Clinton has a lot going for her as a candidate. She has experience, she's a natural leader. And as our first female president, we could pay her 30% less! That's a saving this country could use. Who's with me??"
  • On Chelsea Clinton's pregnancy: "In nine months we will officially have a sequel to Bad Grandpa."

The Communists won!

How did they do it?

They bought the military.

They bought congress.

They bought the press.

I'm sure their children will be happy in this brave new world?

As long as the money lasts, they will.

It isn't about communism, racism or any other "ism". It's about total world control, the "isms" are just developed along way as means to the end. Having the fascist leaders parody themselves as if to show humility is the ultimate control tool. Amazing how many people buy this crap while villagers burn to death in Odessa from their orders.

Larger aggregations are the name of the game. It is easier to control a handful of entities who each control a handful and on down, than to directly control thousands, millions, or billions.

One of Nature's great gifts to mankind: evolution of a formalized chain of command control. Now we can operate as intelligent army ants. Or maybe eventually, a Borg Collective.

Hell, the TITLE is a joke!

'NERD' prom?

Nerds are intellectually ahead of their peers, at least.

"'DWEEB' prom" is FAR more appropriate.

DWEEBS are not as smart as, well, a rock. DWEEBS think they're better than averyone else (because they have grown up around people who are pre-conditioning them to think that they are 'special', A.K.A. 'Special Ed.').

DWEEBS ALWAYS 'go with the flow'. If you meet a DWEEB, you can tell them that Mineet or Comet is Cocaine, and they will believe you, and snort the shit up through a straw, telling you that they are getting 'buzzed' when you ask them how they feel.

A DWEEB is an ACTOR in a play that THEY think is THEIR IDEA (even though they are too stupid to understand that they are merely actors in the plays that are being done to them).

 

A NERD, at least, realizes that ink pens leak, and has taken it upon him(her)self to purchace a POCKET PROTECTOR to keep their mommies from getting pissed off by the stains that won't wash out. A NERD has the ability to make basic utilitarian repairs, such as DUCT TAPE to hold the broken eyeglass frame together. A NERD actually enjoys playing CHESS. A NERD invented the Windows computer, and the 'HTTP' protocol.

A DWEEB, on the other hand, fake-fawns over twats like OBAMA, because they think it will get them 'accepted' by the 'Soc's' (socialites, big-wigs, jocks, Rah-Rah's, Richies, and; yes, the NERDS as well). a DWEEB is always good for a blow-job, if you want one. All you have to do is tell one that it will get them 'accepted'.

 

I have to LAUGH OUT LOUD when I see 'intellectuals' in so-called 'economic newsletters' of 2014 trying to use outdated and archaic expressions from the San Fernando Valley of the late 1970's. You mind as well be trying to explain to a DWEEB how derivatives came to be, or why 'they' call people who are too stupid to know better and too smart to undertand that they're STUPID 'DWEEBS'. Pretty little bitches, all in a row...

It's funny, serendipity.  As I am writing these comments I'm listening to a short presentation on the theory of hypnosis.  The basic premise is that we all have "fight or flight" mechanisms as part of our basic functioning, but over time we develop filters to allow us to evaluate and react to a situation based on the mental stimuli we receive.

Now, the theory goes, if you overwhelm the senses of someone to where they have too much information to process at once, they will lose their filters and revert back to the basic flight/fight gut instinct, and they become very susceptible to suggestion.  This is one way hypnosis works, and this is also how a government controls its citizens.

government ==> govern-ment

 

govern = control

 

ment = mind

I remember back to 9/11.  I remember within the first half hour thinking, "All those planes are headed west, and I'm near some likely targets.  I got to get out of here."  I also remember thinking, "Man, I'm glad Bush & Cheney are in charge rather than Gore & Lieberman."  Geez, what a bitch I was.

It's amazing how simple it is to get people to revert back to their most base instincts.  Just overwhelm their senses, make them feel like they are under attack, and then when they have dropped all their filters, tell them what to do and they will mindlessly follow you like lost sheep.

Don't worry, a nuke will go off in an American port city within your lifetime, maybe a short moment or few weeks before the end of your lifetime. Probably a low yield dirty nuke. Probably. Could also be high yields and dirty. Also, lots of missiles for sale that can put an EMP enhanced nuke 150km up over all out heads and kill 90% of our population, just minutes after launch from a container ship. Sleep tight. Keep on banging against efforts to prevent nuclear proliferation and meta terrorism and psycho petro dictatorships.

Well, Bush/cheney went to war with the weasel congress and traitor libtard media they had, not the one they might have preferred. The Afghanistan job was over in weeks, then the nation-building hogwash set in. Ditto Iraq. These interventions could have cost a tenth of what they did and improved things in both places, by limiting the scope to killing the fuckheads and their support, setting up bases and deterring foreign powers. Obama scuttled even that, by ensuring no status of forces agreement in Iraq and pre-announcing abandonment of Bagram prior to the "surge". The latter abortion was designed to wreck the US military and not much more. Maybe a little backup of his campaigning rhetoric and Manchurian candidate head fakery.

Control by fear. Fear out of losing a "great deal on this used toyota camery. But u have to act now" an old use car salesmen tactic. Set it up as this: the sheep will gain a tremendous value by acting quickly. But you have to blindly act in that moment or the opportunity will vanish.
Kinda like invading iraq now for the value of freedom and safety vs getting attacked by WMD's. You have to do it now!

me-duh is definitely in the business of controlling minds.

we didnt' have TeeVee in the house when nein-eleventy event'd, so we gathered a group in a house that did "subscribe" - I'm glad I viewed the "unfolding of events" with others who also mocked the memes.

the talking heads with the repetitive showings of the "plane" crashing into the tower, and then the towers collapsing. . . so very obvious how the story was implanted - "dramatic" imagery with "dramatic" voice-overs. . . repeated for DAYS.

any one who hasn't awakened from that imposed dream by now is so far down the narrative-path it's unlikely they'll find their way out.

Benghazi Beer Pong

 

This year's White House Correspondents Dinner was very religious. The media was trying to resurrect Obamacare while simultaneously trying to entomb Benghazi forever. 

 

Even David Gregory got in on all fun when he invited his shrink to do a psychoanalysis session using President Obama's teleprompter. 

 

The highlight of the evening was a drinking game called 'benghazi beer pong' that used President Obama's soiled golf balls and cups filled with the blood of all the deceased from the Benghazi attack on 9/11/12.

 

It was a proud night for the media to revel in their own pathetic worthless professionalism.

Communism is about control and money. Communist leaders control the people with an iron fist so they can siphon off the people's wealth into their own pockets.

Today we have a new communism where bankers use the government to control the people with an iron fist so bankers can siphon off the people's wealth into their own pockets.

Who has more votes, government employee unions and government dependents, or bank employees and bank stockholders? The answer to this riddle is that we have a coalition here. Bankers are stroking their monstrously big, ravenous coalition pals in the direction of their fur, for profit, yes, but they know these monsters have teeth. Such teeth are why and how it is the financial sector has been giving more to Dems in general and Obama in particular. Government has guns, prisons, mobs, and media on its side.

The commies described in the book never existed, and they never will. The commies in real life are very simply nasty despotic figureheads for the consolidation of power for even nastier oligarchs (see global banking cartel). -the "communists" exist AND they won because people were and still are fooled by the idea of communism and big government.

The contemporary statist (in the US its all democrats :most repubs too- in other parts of the world labor party) simply have not the slightest idea what they are supporting.

@Chuck Knoblauch: "The Communists won!"

It wasn't the "Communists".  It was the Old Guard, the re-ascending Feudal Masters, led by the Rothschilds and Rockefellers.  "Communism" was created by them and injected into Romanov Russia.  Read up on Lenin and Trotsky, and their Western sponsors.  Since they could not destroy Russia from outside, they created and supported the Bolshevik Revolution, to destroy it from within.

Words matter, as does a thorough knowledge of history -- lest we go down some rabbit hole.  I agree with the rest of your statement, though.

p.s. Ever notice that the West is opposed to "rulers for life" when they are called Presidents, but all in favor of them when they are called King, Prince, or Sultan?  Coincidence?  I think NOT!  TPTB are all in favor of "rulers for life", as long as it creates and perpetuates a feudal system of governance.  The US and the West has been marching toward neo-Feudalism in recent years, via corporate consolidations, via TPTB and TPTJ entities, and a Government "By, For, Of the Plutocrats".

Zero Hedge[1] is a batshit insane Austrian economics-based finance blog run by a pseudonymous founder who posts articles under the name "Tyler Durden," after Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club personality.

Tyler claims to be a "believer in a sweeping conspiracy that casts the alumni of Goldman Sachs as a powerful cabal at the helm of U.S. policy, with the Treasury and the Federal Reserve colluding to preserve the status quo." While this is not an entirely unreasonable statement of the problem, his solution actually mirrors the anatagonist in Fight Club in that Tyler wants, per Austrian school ideas, to lead a catastrophic market crash in order to destroy banking institutions and bring back "real" free market capitalism.[2]

The site posts nearly indecipherable analyses of multiple seemingly unrelated subjects to point towards a consistent theme of economic collapse any day now, and has accurately predicted 200 of the last 2 recessions. Tyler seems to repeat The Economic Collapse Blog's idea of posting blog articles many times a day and encouraging people to post it as far and wide as humanly possible. Tyler moves away from the format of long lists to write insanely dense volumes[3] filled with (often contradicting) jargon that makes one wonder if the writers even know what the words actually mean.[4] The site first appeared in early 2009, meaning that (given Tyler's habit of taking a shit on each and every positive data point), anyone listening to him from the beginning missed the entire 2009-2013 rally in the equities market.

The only writer conclusively identified is Dan Ivandjiiski, who conducts public interviews on behalf of Zero Hedge.[5] The blog came online several days after he lost his job at Wexford Capital, a Connecticut-based hedge fund (run by a former Goldman trader).

Zero Hedge is not quite the NaturalNews of economics, but not for want of trying.

Allegations of "pump and dump" involvement

Ironically, Zero Hedge has itself been accused of some of the manipulation it claims to expose. A company called Noble Investments Limited claims that a financial consultant paid Zero Hedge and a nut from Forbes to write a defamatory blog post about the company, which he then linked to immediately.

Accordingly, just fourteen minutes after the Dalrymple GFC Reptort was published on zerohedge.com, Weinberg published a fully formed blog entry, including pictures, in which he summarized and quoted from the report, and provided readers a link to Ivandjiiski’s blog entry on zerohedge.com where they could download the report. Weinberg did not acknowledge that zerohedge.com had “broken” the story fourteen minutes earlier or state anywhere in the blog that the link from which readers were invited to download the report pointed to Ivandjiiski’s blog entry on zerohedge.com.[20]

The law firm behind the suit describes Zero Hedge as "a portal for people to anonymously distribute derogatory information concerning public companies," giving the impression that Zero Hedge may well have arranged many such pay-to-defame schemes.

 

This is similar to the woman whom I brought in to help keep my house clean, live free of charge and use.  She was at a woman's shelter.  She gets on line and tells everyone what about my house...I work 6 days a week, 8-12 hours and own my home.  It's a spin of another kind that happens to the best of us.

 

Thank you Zerohedge!!  I saw this coming during the Great Credit Expansion and when I found your site, I knew I found the place to go for ~accurate~ information and informed speculation of what is really going on (because it is all a big fucking joke on us).

Stand tall.  Hope you are richer than everyone else.

not only do you need an effective governance model that regulates at a national level, but you also need one at the supra-national level.  the UN needs to be re-designed, and there are some lessons to learn from the EU project.  keep an eye on the EU, because they will be a driving leadership force throughout this century.  pax americana and its economic system are losing credibility by the day, let alone the damage done with the iraq/afghan invasions over a decade ago...

4 months ago Oh happy day Christmas. Feasting on the ox, the ass, lamb, turkey and creatures from the sea. That's what the rainforest is good for after all, cutting trees to feed our livestock with GMO soy and exploit our vast ocean with superior precision because we can lust on it and it's ours.

The self, reflected in bubble shaped mirrors and beads and made up angels glittering in artificial light, the sweetness of our decorated colourful consumerism. The lustre of self magnified. blown up. Christmas, the Disneyfication of christianity.

A few days later, as if a million hearts are exploding in the sky, the smartest creature of the universe celebrates life to the beat of a tune with a drone. As if saying, 'Let there be light and thunder'. The night sky was never that spectacular really, our imitated stars are much more entertaining. We thrill, we chill, we will...

Whilst distrustful animals like birds panic and flee frightened to death with reason. Who needs god anyway when ignorant humans can do a much better job blowing things up. Next year we will do better practising superb empathy, kissing each other.

The next day, foraging at the supermarket. All lined up, checking timelines in social media accounts, curious about what happened to the others while they were away, sharing, waiting. A multitude of cellphone screens screaming for enlightenment...

It's good that our President can laugh and joke just after his reckless actions in Ukraine have just burned 38 people to death in Odessa.  Perhaps, he would have laughed more heartily if he had just droned a wedding party in some poor part of this world.

That Obama is the second most admired person on this planet in a recent poll should give everyone ample hope for humanity.

Back in America, where BigGov is bureaucratizing and hyper regulating medecine in ways that Kafka would find mind bending, 19K people a year expire from MRSA, very uncomfortably, mostly in hospitals, mostly contracted in the hospitals. The ACA does less than nothing for that, or the diabesity epidemic set to overload hospitals, nor the lack of primary care doctors. List very incomplete.

I went to a move last night (Divergent).  It's probably been six months or so since my last theater movie.  The theater now plays a little piece before the trailers that 1) warns you to report suspicious behavior; 2) advises you to make note of emergency exit in case of some kind of attack; and then, 3) depicts a happy little cartoon character blowing up cell phones with a laswer beam.   Meanwhile, we have the President joking with the Fourth Estate, almost coming right out and saying, "aren't we all having fun pretending to have a free society," and only about 5% of the population notices that any of this is off.

So ABC Media != ABC (TV station), but who owns ABC Media and is it not a part of the 6 big media corporations' umbrella of organizations?  I tried googling for info on that corporation, but with a search term like "ABC Media", it is hard to figure out.

At the very least, it seems from its name that it is some kind of holding company related to ABC, but in any case there is no doubt that ZH far too often has crappy articles like this one, where they try to get us interested in the BS the political puppets are up to.

Qui bono?  Why does ZH so much want us to tune in each and every time these known manipulators and professional liars organize some new event from which to try to manipulate us even further?  Is it really nothing more than click-bait for advertising?  I rather doubt it, especially since better articles draw far more views!

Funny because hollywood has been trying to shed the image of being joined at the hip with liberal causes and candidates. The big movie successes of the last decade are mostly superhero movies, (and Spider Man doesn't work with a safety net) Avatar is dystopian fare, and Hunger Games as well, these films go on to show us the government of the future, which looks a lot worse when Hollywood is telling the story.

Never start a converstaion with the phrase yes we can, (that one is a proven loser) Hollywoods is saying get to the lifeboats (Titanic). They have been selling movies tickets to people who are sure the world is going to end, though I'll bet Cliven Bundy doesn't go to the movies. The studios give campaign money to liberal candidates, even if they make decidely right wing films, the old bait and switch. Obama looks uncomfortable, like he is about to get a shoe thrown at him, probably because Bundy will have a movie made about his story before anyone makes a film about Obama, or maybe they already have, (George Scott in Rage). Somewhere along the way the independent who gets his ass kicked bt the government became the Liberal cause celebre. (Silkwood) Nobody told Obama I guess.

The BLM's business, mineral and grazing rights, may seem arcane, but it was huge scandal in the Bush administration. (wild parties between MMS bureaucrats and the company executives who buy these rights) A huge scandal overwhelmed by the most scandalous presidency in history. Obama never changed anything at MMS, (Minerals Management Service) and what happened in the GOM is the asterick on an equally feckless record. Laugh it up Prez, they give you money, but they don't like you much, nobody does. It has nothing to do with your race.
