Blind Faith

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Authored by Tom Lester via Economic Noise blog,

Obamacare, the Stimulus, TARP, Fast and Furious, support of the Egyptian regime change, Libyan Leading from Behind, four American killed in Benghazi, blaming a video for the Benghazi attacks, the IRA targeting, NSA email and phone file storage, Syrian Red Line, the Russian takeover of Crimea, the VA handling of veterans, release of Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo, the onslaught of children crossing the Mexican border, two years of lost emails of the key IRS individual and now Iraq.

I can’t imagine any previous U.S. President having so many scandals attributed to his administration and virtually none of them adequately answered or resolved. One must reasonably ascribe the failure to question these issues and ferret out the truth by a lack of earnest reporting by a sympathetic media that ignores the denials, stonewalling and misdirections of the White House. Were there any other person in occupancy at $17 Trillion Pennsylvania Avenue NW, I’d wager the lame-brain press would be bellowing that such action or, more often and more accurately, inaction represents a massive conspiracy to change our nation into something entirely different. But the press, that guarantor of truth and honesty, is asleep at the wheel while our American Republic is raced injudiciously toward becoming a European social democracy.

But what’s truly astounding is the poll numbers of individuals who still trust the president! This is blind faith beyond comprehension! I’ve heard all the left-wing zealots who advocate bigger government beyond the specifics of the Constitution. I’ve heard the collectivists who stupidly want open borders and a non-existent military. And I’ve heard the dismissals of complete lies about what Obamacare would bring – keep your plan, keep your doctor, etc. – bad enough when it’s political spin, criminal when total fraud.

Religiously, as Christians, Jews or Muslims, we rely on blind faith of a Creator who will deliver on the words we deem as our respective holy documents. We may come to that decision as we view the magnificence of the universe, the intricacies of a flower or the beauty of procreation of all species. Blind faith in our Creator is not an unreasonable practice in that most preach beyond the faith must be good or charitable works for our fellow man. History, however, has shown faith in our fellow man must also be combined with unfiltered verification.

But perhaps part of those good works are embodied in the old maxim of never saying ill of someone unless you can also find something good to say about them. Beyond the trappings of a good husband and father, I’ve diligently searched for the good things of Obama and finally come up with:

First, I find it admirable that he can find time to play golf in spite of the obligations of the office of president and in spite of the present chaos in the world. An earlier leader would have been on-station agonizing on whether his decision could make a difference. He’s been able to golf so much more frequently than I ever could with my meager and comparatively insignificant obligations.

 

Second, I admire how often Obama can take elaborate vacations for himself and his family on someone else’s dime. It would be nice if my rich uncle would foot the bill for the nicest hotels, food and private transportation to the many exotic places in the U.S. and throughout the world.

 

Third, I find it remarkable that Obama’s scruples allow him with a straight face to demonize any opponent with a differing view and to make statements that are false but that his minions attempt to spin as fact.

 

And lastly, I admire Obama, as a self-appointed messiah, giving speeches that mesmerize his apologists and send chills down certain commentators’ legs. His performances bring back memories of James Warren “Jim” Jones and other notable tyrants always accepted as truth by an unthinking multitude with unfathomable blind faith.

Stand-down at the Mexican border allowing illegal immigrants free access to US.

Lieing about Obamacare and not correctly accounting for the trillions of added costs introduced.

Curious that your original post some of the writer's list of Obama's failures, yet you failed to enumerate Bush's.  Instead you stated that it was so.  Your reply didn't lack imagination; it lacked facts, yet you wanted us to accept your charges and blindly vote "guilty..because JC said so".

Later another posters picked up the ball that you dropped, and you nod in assent at the assist.

Obama voted for each of the 3 listed Bush guilts, and can we suppose that you still want to give him a pass?  You had the opportunity to write something like, "Yes, Obama is a worthless piece of shit and guilty as charged, but I'd like you to also consider these Bush failures (which Obama supported as a senator and continued as a President)", but you did not.  Your  left it to the reader to wonder/assume that you're still a partisan doofus stuck in the (D)/(R) dichotomy.

And I care? zh has devolved into a bunch of old low class white male losers with nothing interesting to say whining incessantly about how the evil darky (and his evil libtard allies) in the white house is the source of all their problems. The blaze.com is already a handy heatscore for such idiots, why they gotta take over zh too?

Over the past year tyler has gone from writing consistently good commentary to openly encouraging these losers. And this article takes the recent cake (thankfully not tyler attributed). 

Sometimes it ain't the guy in office, it's just you.

The problem right now is the enormous destruction Obama is imposing on the US (Mentor Bill Ayers is probably gushing).

Bush did his own damage, but that is not the current issue.

 

Perhaps information on how Obama rose so quickly...

 

Rockefellers Midwifed Birth of Obama-mania

April 23, 2008 (EIRNS)—In 2004, a national environmentalist entity created and managed by the Rockefeller family endorsed Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator with little national reputation, in his race against other Democrats in his Democratic primary for United States senator.

The League for Conservation Voters announced they would "launch a new TV spot, titled 'Rising Star,'" which would run regularly "through Election Day in the Chicago media market." The League's press release boasted that the promotion was expensive: "the ad buy is a significant, six-figure purchase."

In the 2003-2004 campaign season (according to the Center for Public Integrity), the League also paid $297,867 to the political consulting firm of David Axelrod, which was managing Obama's campaign. Axelrod and his firm AKP Message and Media shaped Obama's political image and today manage the Obama Presidential campaign top-down.

The League of Conservation Voters was founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller and his close associates. Among the current directors of the League are Larry Rockefeller, son of Laurance (who died the year of the Obama Senate campaign); Wade Greene, counselor to the Rockefeller family; Donald K. Ross, strategist for the Rockefeller family's envirnomental and foundation activities; and Theodore Roosevelt IV, partner of Felix Rohatyn at Lehman Brothers. Roosevelt is the League's honorary chairman and a long-time leader of the group.

Historically, the Rockefeller family has been a central organizer of the financier faction which took Chicago from Lincoln nationalism and made it a center of the British fascist policy outlook (see accompanying item on David Axelrod).

The League of Conservation Voters works in tandem with the Partnership for New York City, in setting the agenda for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Partnership was founded by Laurance's brother David Rockefeller, to carry on Felix Rohatyn's policies past the 1970s period when Rohatyn ran the bankers' dictatorship called Big MAC in New York City. ...

one of obama's few accomplishments is to make republicans hate the destruction of the constitution (warrantless wiretapping, indefinite detention, executive assassination, "preventive" war) when a democrat, particularly a somewhat black one, adopts (and expands) the policies of the previous republican administration.

"The sheeple believe in a god who'll reward their overlooking of his flaws with a forgiveness of their sin of slavery. They just can't seem to name what god that is."

I do not now nor have I ever owned a slave.  Neither have my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, or great great grandparents. 

Considering the depth of my origins in IRE, it's more likely that my ancestors were themselves slaves rather than slave owners.

Go peddle your 40 ounces and an Escalade in Da Hood where the utter bullshit can be appreciated. 

"500 years of slavery in this country"?  How often do we hear that bullshit?  The 13 colonies declared independence on July 4, 1776.  Slavery was outlawed nationwide less than 90 years later.  It was already outlawed in multiple of those 13 colonies prior to their declaring independence btw.   500 vs < 90.  Math-challenged or simply mendacious?

Anything prior to then and you might want to peddle your beef to France, England, and Spain.  Blame me because I've supposedly benefited from slavery??  Logical gymnastics aside, you might apply the same twisted logic to those 3 countries and their current residents. 

Tiny Cuba held more African slaves than the USA ever did.  Curiously no one complains to or about them.  Pockets not deep enough, and not enough Jew handlers to peddle the false guilt and division?  Brazil held at least 15 times as many slaves as did the USA.  Cue the crickets.

If slavery is the one sin that you hang your hat on, then your silence on the rest of the world's slavery (incl that by historical and current African negroes), is simply deafening, and your outrage is utter self-serving bullshit that has little to do with slavery.

you outline what is going on very well. however, the reason why the status quo continues to exist is that the average person does not know about it. this is all one big confidence game. Inflation calculated how we did it in the 80s means we are at 6-8% inflation, which means our GDP has been negative for at least a decade, which puts us in a depression not seen in nearly a century. what do we talk about? gay marraige, immigration reform, abortion. its nothing but a confidence game, and it will be able to continue as long as the average moron in the US isnt aware of whats being done to him

Too much anti-obummer stuff on zh lately. Attacking a pawn of the system rather than the system itself confers unwarranted legitimacy on the system, a system not limited by term mandates. It gives dullards the impression that the problem is the 'salesman in chief' themselves and not what they are selling.

What is racist?  

What is racist code?

Any particular code or just the code(s) you identify as racist?

Are terms such as diversity and affirmative action part of a code?

What is political correctness?  Fairness?  Inclusiveness?  Justice?  Quotas?

Is La Raza any more or less racist than Black Power or White Supremacy?

There are so many types of racisism, so many types of racists, so many types of baiting and coded proxy accusation that I would feel very much better if We would all dispense with these damned codes and pc anti-codes and just call spades spades.

He thinks he is a king, but he's an ass.

Lincoln's handling of the Civil War is exactly why he is the worst US president of all time. Rather than let the South peacefully separate, Lincoln decided to wage the bloodiest war in US history and assumed dictator-like powers in the process. People always seem to wonder why the executive branch has so much power. Lincoln was a major reason why that has come to pass.

As for how Obama would handle a civil war of his own, I'd expect he'd do the same shit as Lincoln... jail dissidents, censor the media, maybe even deport a Congressman and cause him to flee to Canada. Isn't that right, Clement Vallandigham?

I for one detested Bush/Cheney and that crew as much as Obama and for the same reasons:  they are all traitors and war criminals who have carried out a single policy of destroying the constitution, advancing universal surveillance and furthering the militilarization of the police and the policing role of the military, committing either covert or falsely justified military aggression against sovereign nations, leaving them in ruin.  Obama is a fraud, a phony, an impostor whose records are sealed for good reason--why else spend the money to keep them that way?  He is worthy of total contempt and gets ZERO slack from me because of his race.

The difference isn't in the parties. If Bush had sicced the IRS on his political opponents, staff inside the IRS would have leaked it, and the NYT and Washington Post would have made it front page news for weeks. That's the difference.

The Democrat Party is more than just the Party. The federal civil service is also, for practical purposes, an organ of the Democrat Party. The news media are, as well. So both parties may well be equal in venality, but one side has far more power.

The problem with the "whole country is pissed off" idea is that Obama's approval is still over 40%.

I'm afraid that too many people are either corrupt or inattentive. OTOH, since they have few principles apart from self-interest, they should turn in a heartbeat once they start being hurt directly:

I think I'll keep my commentary limited to my quest in silver and gold.  Stocks are operating on a frequency that is beyond me.  I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss that reversal pattern in the future, though.  A sustained move up over weeks that pulls back for a few days and then pokes to new highs, reverses, and closes at the lows of the day is a reversal pattern that happens all the time.  I can show you dozens of examples.  Clearly, once the gap was filled and there was no hint at follow through, it's moot.  But recognizing it can keep you from buying a dip when you shouldn't.     

I have no criticism of traders who are just doing what's been working until it stops working, but the list of reasons to be cautious is off the page.  This particular bull market is not only irrational, it's unnaturally irrational, due to the Fed, and no clearer example was the negative GDP print going green.  I appreciate the traders out there who at least recognize the danger of such a disconnect with the real world.     

I feel like doing something nice, so I'm gonna promote some peeps I feel are legit.  First, thanks to John Carter for helping to keep me on the right side of the market today.  And kudos to everyone over at his trading room called Simpler Options.  I'm trying real hard to force myself to like individual stocks but I'm not sure it's my game.   There's too many things to focus on.  We'll see.  But John runs a legit room if you like trading stocks and options.  He also has a futures room that I should probably try as its more my thing.    

Jack Steinman over at SwingTradeOnline is up 50% this year.  I'm not currently in the room b/c I have too much going on in my life. Oh, and I hate stocks.  But I was before and he's a legit guy.  I really need to get over this stock thing.  

I'm a big fan of the Tasty Trade network and everyone on there.  I'm constantly learning new things and it's good to hear the thoughts and struggles of other traders during the day.  I'm more of a technical guy, but I'm looking forward to selling premium when we get some to sell.  

And I just recently came across a great blog if you trade commodity futures.  Trader Dan Norcini has consistent, insightful analysis that reflects COT positioning in many of the commodity markets.  His blog is here: http://traderdannorcini.blogspot.com/

Enjoy.

Mr. Obama is a religious leader. From Wikipedia

Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church that states that, in virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error[1] "When, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church."[2]

Ask yourself about the process that raises up such weak individuals, where inexperience is not a handicap but a requirement. The same bunch is now touting Warren for team blue and Cruz for team red. Who the hell ARE these people?  How about decades of work, negotiations, legislation, speeches, celebrations and funerals, until a qualified 65-year-old shows the gravitas to be both head of state and head of government.  (how about Michael Lewis?? he knows how stuff works, is a patriot and doesn't need the money).

Some people are more offended that BHO is head of state, others that he is head of the goverment.  The founders thought that they could constrain the "mob" by allowing the voters to signal divided government.  It takes real support/conviction for one party to have both the House and the Presidency.

One thing I do know, if Senate flips in November we will have an impeachment.  It's a shabby solution to the frustration holding the House and not having a Prime Minister.  When a war is lost, or the ecoomy is damaged (or BOTH!) the government should fall and a new team come in.  THe worst part of the 2008 election was that it turned out that we didn't clean house.  But this intermediate form was given to us by the Founders who had seen nasty stuff in Britain and France, and really feared the mob.

The ultimate faith isn't just blind.  It's Deaf, Dumb and Blind: "Organized Religion".  Been around for thousands of years. 

If you study civilizations, and how their tribal faiths morphed into national faiths (to keep pace with its size, structure and sophistication), you will see the parallels.

Most civilizations had multiple deities, which were difficult to export as a "Product", via secular or religious imperialism.  Their faith declined and died with their secular decline, and was replaced by other faiths, which had better attributes as an Invasive Species in the fertile soil of Faith (as models for Hopes & Dreams of Life, the Universe and Everything).  By contrast, the civilizations which had just one deity -- an omnipotent and all-knowing deity of logical necessity -- could export their intolerant and dominant deity for purposes of physical conquest.  This was possible, because their worldview became simple and manageable, and therefore exportable: hot-swapping a complex template with a simple template, that made life itself simple for simple people.

E.g., the ancient Jews worshiped several deities, until the followers of one of them (Elohim) won out and routed out all competition.  Their faith was/is exclusive, and not for power via direct physical conquest.  Rather, theirs is extreme cooperation within the faith, and competition outside it.  Their philosophy isn't control via raw power (Goliath), but via leveraged control & power (David).  Theirs is strategy of ascension to positions of power & influence, which required extreme cooperation within the members of the faith.

Christianity would have stayed a Jewish sect, had Saul not become Paul and made a monstrously successful paradigm shift: Change Christianity from being exclusive (to Jews), and being inclusive.  This "repositioning" and "re-branding" of a religious Product made ALL the difference, as history has shown.  Eventually Jesus became a Roman deity, and his followers created an organizational structure that mirrored the Roman military structure: local and regional hierarchies (priest, bishops and cardinals) that all reported to the Supreme Rule of Rome and its supreme ruler (the Pope).

In Mohammed's time, each of the hundreds of tribes had their own god -- they had hundreds of gods.  Coincidence?  I think not!  If Muhammad wanted to fuse the many tribes into one, he also had to fuse, i.e. "standardize" their faith and many deities into One deity.  He did both.

The real curiosity is, what will happen when ETs make First Public Contact with humanity?  Clearly the religious followers of earth must be prepared, lest "all hell" break loose.  E.g., the Catholic Church is already taking such steps, with its Observatory and "reframing" of God and Jesus.  Otherwise, Aliens would have to be "baptized", lest the entire faith collapse.

With all due respect, you could make that hierarchical analogy with any organization; not simply the Romans, and not simply because it furthered your point.

Jesus' followers mirrored the NBA: players, owners, league executives, commissioners.  No, wait, that's not so good an analogy because over half the NBA owners are Jewish and the commissioners and their administrations have been strictly a kosher affair for the last 31 years.

"Christianity would have stayed a Jewish sect, had Saul not become Paul and made a monstrously successful paradigm shift"

What proof is there to support this assertion?  Yes, Jesus claimed to be the savior the Israelites had been awaiting, but he also did NOT exclude anyone else from being saved.  Their leaders rejected Him.  Saul had nothing to do with that. 

His represented a fundamental and total schism with their Old Covenant, and by His own acts and words He was a savoir to ANYONE who heard the Word of God and believed.  He was decidely NOT a savoir to only the Israelites. 

With all due respect you're wrong.

I'm not even a Christian and even I know that what you wrote is incorrect.

"Religiously, as Christians, Jews or Muslims, we rely on blind faith of a Creator who will deliver on the words we deem as our respective holy documents."

Request to the author:

Please do not conflate Judasm with Christianity by uttering them in the same breath.  The Quran mentions Jesus multiple times and each time follows it with "blessed be his name" or something equally reverential.  Judaism?  Well, the Talmud says that Jesus is boiling in excrement and that His mother was a whore.  Conflate? 

Please do not fall into and promote the "Judeo-Christian" values bullshit.  I'd very much like to hear some of these supposed Judeo-Christian values that are distinct from human values in the rest of the world (and in particular the non-Abrahamic world).  Gentiles are animals to the Talmudic Jew and they say so hundreds of times in their Talmud.

Muslims, meanwhile are vilified with MSM bullshit propaganda and outright lies.  I challenge any of you to find a passage in the Quran that says anything about killing infidels and being rewarded with (insert number here: ____) of virgins.  Isn't it quite the cohencidence that none of us heard a peep about that until Sept 2001.  1300 years go by and the first we hear about it was MSM Jew bullshit in 2001.

To say we are awash in scandals is an understatement. It is fortunate that the American people have the attention span of a gnat, this will help them through these troubled times. It is almost guaranteed that  all the scandals and all the revelations that emerge from the nations capital  will come to naught. A polarized America has become unable to react  with any real outrage.

It appears that in its current form our Government has simply become to big to obtain the degree of over-site necessary to keep its agencies in line. These scandals are becoming to many to count, but to small to have much meaning to many people. Even when the law is broken the Presidents supporters often try to argue it away as political nitpicking. More on this subject in the article below.

This is the dumbest post I've read on this site. Half the shit mentioned aren't scandals. They are policy choices you disagree with. I'm no fan of Obama, but calling saying he has more scandals than every other president is as laughable as it is revisionist. Since when did Zerohedge become a site for such political garbage?

"I’ve heard the collectivists who stupidly want...a non-existent military"

I'm no leftist, but is ending the perpetual warfare of the military industrial complex, against having 700 military bases around the world, and bringing the troops home to defend our borders mean people are arguing for no military?  This claim is dubious to me.

Why has he gotten away with it?

1.He's a negro.Negro's are to 21st century liberalism/ progressivism what the noble savage was to Rousseau's romanticism

2.The ruling elite believe in liberalism /progressivism like Moslems believe in the Mahdi.

Simple

As above, so below.

If you are stupid enough to believe in a celestial  Kingdom, then you are also stupid enough to believe in its the earthly manefistation.

He's black which means he is a good guy that can be trusted. Don't critcize. It's racism if you do because many blacks were slaves 150+ years ago.
