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

Tyler Durden's picture




 

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!

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.

Dear President,

A house divided can not stand. Get true to yourself. I voted for you because you were the only senator to vote against Iraq. I felt hope when you promised to close Guantanamo. Rather than go back to Iraq, get out. Close Guantanamo, get all the way out of Afganistan. Stop trying to influence Ukraine, Syria, Africa, South America. You sir, need a bath. You can't possibly survive in all the filth. I know you have to work on-the-fly but your sources are compromised, corrupted, slanted, full of alternative agenda and less than savory intention. Your best allies are your worst and the worst are your best. Stop listening to the deceivers and misdirectors. The quick of toungue "smart" people your listen to, aren't. Come clean. Do some honest and clear things. Renew the Consitution and Bill of Rights. Reverse all the NDAA type spooky shit that actually is polar opposite to the American Experiment. Sure, they may threaten you with a "Kennedy" but it is possible for you to expose them, do good, secure your legacy and the wonderful experiment that was and should be America. Perhaps your worst fear is our salvation.

This guy is in-your-face with obvious lies. He mocks his followers, knowing they are easily manipulated morons.

 

During the last election, I showed Repubs film clips of Romney pushing through or advocating policies that they opposed from O. I showed Dems film clips of O lying over his campaign promises made during his first campaign.  Despite the damning evidence, they voted the same as originally planned, anyway.

They come up with a new 'pandemic' scare every year, it seems. Swine flu, bird flu, etc, etc.  (Remember when they put out a trial balloon that people may even be forced to take a vaccine. This was a few years ago; most people ignored them. It was another lie campaign and they ended up dumping most of the vaccine.)   - I heard one guy recently jump on this who is supposed to have some training in science. (Used to work at NASA). It tied in with his seal the border opinions - which I actually agree with. But I am highly skeptical of whatever official voices say about 'the next pandemic threat'.

If you want to learn more about how medical frauds are carried out, check Jon Rappoport's work on HIV, vaccines, and psychiatric drugs.

The established liars of Washington DC are acting like they are the all powerful rulers of all mankind. Since Iraq, they have been sowing war and death across the world. Yet, this is not how they portray it. To hear them speak, they are interested in speading peace, security, prosperity, free markets and justice for all. Does anyone care to square that lie with the reality of their past actions?

Iraq and Afghanistan are at peace, stable and prosperous according to the Neocons of Washington, afterall, they spent trillions of OUR tax money on those two projects.

To spread freedom and religious liberty, they have funded and formed an army to attack Syria. All is going well there as more and more liberty and prosperity spreads with each rebel victory. Again, at the cost of Billions of our taxes.

Libya, suffering a repressive leader, we used a NATO air war to set those people free. Now it is stable, peaceful, prosperous and a bastion of free market liberty. Well done, this one was cheap, only a couple billion of our taxes there.

Where do I begin with setting Ukraine free from corruption. The new government has set the people free to worship and live as they please. The economy is being set right, and anyman is free to be active in politics. The Coup government is one of the worlds most liberal and well meaning. Look how the peace is being spread to the east and prosperity is not far behind. Though the progress has come at a cost of admitted 15 billion of our money, with several billion more funding the peace keepers in the Donnbass taking on an organised terrorist gang seeking to attack the peaceful Euro Maidan Coup leaders of Kiev.

Not satisified with that bit. Washington has eyes on China. The pivot of the Navy and Marines to the China outskirts, along with other military units moving into Australia to keep them safe from all the threats there.

Price tag for all this? Fuck knows! But we are glad to pay it. As Americans, it is our duty to keep spreading freedom, liberty and prosperity. When you look at the past 12 years, who can argue that the price has not been totally worth it? Who, I ask you?

White House has not been living in the real world for a while now and I noticed it a while back when their email, but changed and started sending updates like they were talking to a 5th grader or lower.  Last they used "junk science" numbers that they got who knows where to support their Climate Control bill, so talk about shooting yourself in the foot, duh?  How can one predict and say there will be 2200 fewer heart attacks and 100,000 fewer asthma attacks in the first year of climate control and there more stats like that.

http://ducknetweb.blogspot.com/2014/06/junk-science-appearing-everywhere...

It's what I call "The Grays" and the VA was a good indicator of folks who can't tell the difference between virtual values and the real world anymore and it's not just the White House, but it does start at the top and roll down.  They have some folks on staff that just suck up any old numbers that are tossed at them and then last week the bot sends out an email about the great results with the jobs report..please...we all know it's fake but when the White House says it's great news...well there you go.  I said the VA is just the tip of the iceberg and the VA problems actually roll downhill from the culture woven at the White House and in Cognress today, they are in there too. 

http://ducknetweb.blogspot.com/2014/05/va-crisis-just-tip-of-iceberg-as-...

So who did the quantitated justifications for these folks I wonder?  All you have to do is toss numbers at them and they eat it up.  On the the other hand we have the GOP with their unique perceptions and ideas out there for the full circle and sad thing is that we may have to elect a few of them to wake up the other side from sleeping in the Grays, but I think we can safely say living in the virtual worlds out there is a non partisan issue:)

The really disturbing part about what Obozo is saying, is that he's saying it with a straight face, and he probably believes the make-believe shit that is spewing from his mouth.

All madmen eventually start believing their own drivel, and then shortly thereafter, many millions die.

This is a really scary moment in history, because usually what happens is that the idiot in charge gets all pissed off that things are not going his way, and then starts a war to prove how macho and in charge he really is.

Hope you've made your preparations for a bumpy ride, because it's about to get bumpy.

Expensive as heck but even though I'm a CB, I spurged in this case.

this is the sutpidest article i have ever read, it's not the first time either. it is as if the person writing this wants to gloat over the fact the president may wind up being hypocritcal as he sets up the run up to the next series of wars. 

 

if the godamn president is on tv propogandizing against 'instability' let him do it. at best, he might actually do what he says he will do and not start ww3. and at worst, he has his foot in his mouth. would you rather he give a speech about how now is the best time in history to start ww3 , just so you can be happy that for once a politician is being honest?

There are reasons why most Americans, and many people around the world, are very pessimistic about the future. There are reasons why Americans think Obama is the worst President in 70 years, according to polls. The unstable international situation of the last several years is one of them.

Either most of the people on the planet are wrong, or Obama is (again).

The idea this man is "president" is the most ludicrous theme ever created.

It is past obvious he is a marionette, a puppet, a drug-addicted homosexual deviant pervert blackmailed and managed by TPTB.

He has armed Mexican Cartels, initiated an invasion of the US, and plans to destroy the United States.

Where is your vaunted US Army? Your Armed Forces sworn by Oath to defend your Constitution?

The Ukrainian air disaster may easily lead to War and a nuclear exchange.

The United States is now a lawless, blighted country, it will be destroyed if the Usurper and his Handlers are not arrested and adjudicated.

Good Luck, USA. The NAZI extermination of WW2 is knocking at your door.

It is likely that these official statements are drawn from the research of Steven Pinker, author of a book that has made waves in policy circles over the last 12 months.

Pinker is a cognitive scientist but the hypothesis of his most recent book, The Better Angels of Our Nature: A History of Violence and Humanity, is that violence within and between societies has been declining predictably for millenia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Better_Angels_of_Our_Nature

It is an important book because it is being used by the political class to fuel intellectual reinvestment in the legitimacy of the Leviathan (currently under assaut from numerous decentralising movements).

The most pertinent criticism of the book is that it is virtually silent on Europe's colonial adventures. 

It is worth reading for anyone who wants to see where the next wave of excuses are coming from.

Considering that the US Government has zero credibility, we may need to have 14+ reasons to support why any particular statement the US Government makes should be considered true in the future.

However along those lines, I always wondered why it appears that the MSM and US Government do not care about their credibility... had a conversation yesterday that may shed some light on that.

I was speaking with a sweet 70 year old lady, she mentioned that one of her social groups had a presentation on how to conduct yourself during martial law. One item was why everyone must obey orders without hesitation or question during martial law. The reasoning used was that you could be killed otherwise. I mentioned that they do not need marital law to commit murder. Congress already gave the Executive branch the power to "legally murder" a US Citizen on mere suspicion based on the NDAA.

She said that she knew that but was afraid to say anything because they might take away her Social Security or that speaking out could adversely affect her children that still work for the government.

Yep, I almost "puked" as well and started thinking about that. If we are over the 50% point on those who either are dependent on, or have a family member dependent on the US Government for employment, pension, benefits, etc..., then a reasonable person would expect a very small number of them to risk their comfort by speaking out.

So at this point, I'm thinking that one of the reasons the MSM and US Government do not appear to worry about their credibility is because they no longer have to - as long as they keep a controlling percentage of the US population "bought and paid for".
