14 Reasons The White House's "The World Is More Stable & Less Violent Than Ever" Meme Is A Lie

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog,

With a straight face, Barack Obama has been repeatedly telling us that the world is "more stable" and "less violent" than ever.  In fact, he believes that this is the best time in history to be alive because of how peaceful and stable everything is.  And of course Obama is more than happy to take credit for his role in bringing all of this "stability" about.  Just this week, his press secretary told the media that this administration has "substantially improved" the "tranquility of the global community".  Apparently these guys don't think that we will notice all of the violence, war and terrorism constantly raging all around us.  It would be wonderful if the planet actually was becoming a more peaceful place, but instead the exact opposite is happening.  The world is becoming increasingly unstable, and if we aren't really careful we could see World War III break out before too long. But if you listen to Obama, he makes it sound like we are living in an emerging global utopia.  The following is an excerpt from remarks that he made during a White House event in June...

[T]he truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.

You can watch video of him making those remarks below...

And as I mentioned above, a similar statement was made by White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Monday...

"I think that there have been a number of situations in which you’ve seen this administration intervene in a meaningful way, that has substantially furthered American interests and substantially improved the, uh, you know, the – the tranquility of the global community."

In addition, posted below is video of Obama declaring that the world is "more stable" than it was five years previously during a speech to the United Nations last year...

It would be great if all of this stuff was actually true.  But I think that at this point not even Obama believes half the things that are coming out of his mouth.  He has told dozens of major lies while he has been in the White House, and the following are 14 reasons why Obama is lying when he claims that the world is "more stable" and "less violent" than ever...

#1 The downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has brought Ukraine and Russia even closer to the brink of war.  The government in Kiev is blaming Russia and Russia is blaming the government in Kiev.  But Barack Obama does not seem too concerned about it.  During a speech on Thursday, he spent a mere 40 seconds addressing the downing of the plane before he began a 16 minute speech in which he told numerous jokes.

#2 If it wasn't for revolutionary Ukrainian groups funded by George Soros and the U.S. government (among others), the Ukrainian government may never have been violently overthrown and there might not have been a civil war in Ukraine at all.

#3 Relations between the United States and Russia are the worst that they have been since the end of the Cold War, and the economic sanctions that Obama just slapped on Russia are not going to help matters any.

#4 Israel has just launched a major ground offensive in Gaza, and many fear that a full-blown regional war in the Middle East could erupt at any moment.

#5 The civil war in Syria has been raging for several years now.  Thanks to the United States and Saudi Arabia, those seeking to bring down the Syrian government are very well armed.

#6 The civil war in Iraq continues to get even worse.  ISIS has already captured vast stretches of Iraqi territory and they are using American weapons to do it.

#7 The Kurds claim that ISIS is now using chemical weapons against them.  If this is true, it is really, really troubling news.

#8 The Iraqi government has told the United Nations that ISIS was able to steal 88 pounds of uranium from Mosul University.  Some experts are concerned that they may be able to use this material to create a dirty bomb (or worse).

#9 Barack Obama told us that we were "liberating" Libya, but instead we just transformed it into a war-torn wasteland that is constantly being fought over by warring militia groups.  Just this week, one of those militia groups launched a devastating attack on the main airport in Tripoli.  And the horrible fighting in Libya has spilled over into other nearby countries in North Africa such as Mali.

#10 Relations between the United States and Germany are at the lowest point that they have been since the end of World War II.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel was so furious when one U.S. spy was discovered recently that she expelled the top U.S. intelligence official from the country.  But Germany is far from alone.  The truth is that most of the rest of the world is sick and tired of our "Big Brother" behavior.

#11 Islamic terror group Boko Haram continues to cause havoc all over Nigeria.  The following is from a news report about an incident that happened earlier this week...

Suspected members of the deadly Boko Haram Islamic sect on Monday attacked Dille village in Borno State, killed 45 people and torched several houses and shops and forced many people to flee into nearby hills for safety. The terrorists, it was gathered, came in a convoy of over 20 vehicles and motorcycles. According to one of the villagers, Njimtiku Papka, who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri on the phone, the terrorists on arriving the village started shooting indiscriminately at everyone in sight.

#12 The ongoing civil war in the Central African Republic has forced hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes.

#13 There is horrible fighting going on inside Somalia right now...

A fierce and violent conflict erupted on the outskirts of Qoryoley district in Lower Shabelle between joint African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) troops and Somali National Army soldiers (SNA) against Al-Shabaab. The terrorist insurgents attacked an SNA and AMISOM military sitting in the town just outside Qoryoley when the battle initiated. Locals have reported to Shabelle that the fight also affected towns in the district like Maanyo Mudug, Farhanle and Abdi Ali.

#14 Things are not even stable in North America.  Horrific gang violence and warring between drug cartels in Central America and Mexico has been one of the factors that has caused millions of illegal immigrants to come pouring toward the United States.  Today, Honduras has the highest murder rate on the entire planet, and the Mexican drug war has claimed more than 120,000 lives since 2006.

Of course this is just a partial list.  The truth is that there are dozens of other conflicts that are happening all over the globe right now that could be added to this list.

CNN is running this "Russia did it" meme nonstop.  No one is asking what they had to gain vs to lose by doing so.  

Is this a bid to boost Obama's popularity?

Guest on CNN just said (wife had it on) "this is an existential issue for Putin".  

All the "military analysts" say "we have to do something...be "strong"...we couldnt control Iraq, an area the size of Texas, and these psychos want to start a war (in Europe) with Russia?  They can kill themselves if they want, but not me and my family and friends.  What the fuck is wrong with them?

CNN is a direct outlet for the Fedearl Government and the Neocons. Whatever they say on air comes direct from Obama and the State department, also the Pentagon.

They say Russia did it, but present shit for proof, and never ask the hard queations. This looks more and more like a prefect false flag. The CIA is hding the evidence and will never release it, the blame will stay on Russia. America want war, if they can't get it, they will kill more innocents in East Ukraine. As of today, Kiev artillery has littered the cities with mutilated corpses. I had to stop looking at the releases videos, you just vomit looking and can't sleep after seeing it. Kiev just killed maybe 400 people in the last few days, more than died on the Jet disaster. But CNN refuses to report the Kiev murders. All lies!

Maaysian Flight 17 is a HOAX.

Flight was cancelled, then flown anyway?

Re-directed over E Ukraine, lowered to 33,000 ft.

Followed closely by Uk jets until 3 minutes before shootdown.

interior ministry run by Right Sector gave orders.

All bodies found drained of blood, and in stages of decomposition suggest dead for at least several days before incident.

Conclusion: MH 370 provided bodies, aircraft placed on autopilot, remotley controlled, shot down as propaganda/false flag by US and EU/Uk, to frame Russia and seperatists. Maybe MH 17 is really MH 370, put to a final "good use".

FUCK THESE FUCKERS!

30% of the girls are reporting sexual abuse. If one in ten arrivals is a girl, we're talking 10,000+ cases before this year is finished. Don't minimize things unless you know what you're talking about. Now do these girls a solid and start referring to the fecal matter in the white house by its proper name, President Pimp.

10,000 = N x 0.1 x 0.3.     For that to be true we would need N= about 300k central American unaccompanied minors.  That's a crap ton of undocumented democrat chain migration anchors for just one year.   And people are still saying Obama is incompetent.   No.   He's fucking up the USA and western civilization pretty quickly.

Barry is a communist/socialist and all that Saul Alinsky spew that Barry memorized for years (Barry has never had an original thought of his own and is merely a hand puppet) is now coming out in full force.

 

Lying by Barry is what Barry does and has been doing to ascend the throne and try to make changes.  But it's not working that well for Barry.

 

Saul Alinsky's nastiest works is called "Rules For Radicals" - how to fuck with the herd and fool them into following.

 

The timing of that movie "America, blah blah blah" is perfect - this movie is Barry's Mein Kampf in the theaters for the world to see - suck on it Barry.

Alinsky controls nothing here, he's dead and apparently has his wish.

ALINSKY: ... if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.

PLAYBOY: Why?

ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.

PLAYBOY: Why them?

ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

lol...short on virtue, his kind of people, no doubt.

I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain
Somehow I'm still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up and fight for yourself?

As our ZH theological divertissement, the standard run-of-the-mill Christian postion is that anybody in Hell freely chooses to be there.  Unless they're Calvinists, and then it's not their fault.
