“We Tear-Gassed Some Folks" - Obama Makes Statement On Ferguson, Iraq

Tyler Durden's picture

While we are sure President Obama will comment on the apparent US intelligence failure that Chuck Hagel explained last night - there were far fewer 'refugees' on Mt.Sinjar than expected... but Iraq is still a troubled nation; we suspect the calmer-in-chief will address the situation in Ferguson. Having already disappointed many African American residents of Ferguson, who rejected his previous comments as "insultingly inadequate," it seems the President will take a few minutes out of his day to address the turmoil in middle America... 'we tear-gassed some folks...'

 

President Obama is due to speak at 1215ET - plan accordingly...

This year would be a trifecta if we have another major oil spill and a cat V hurricane

If looting is OK with Obozo, I hear the White House has some nice stuff.

Since government is by far the most destructive force in society, the fault lies with the dupes who want government

Obama says "there is never an excuse for violence against police".  The Supreme Court begs to differ.

I thought Obama was a Constitutional scholar?

we the people should have a rule for when they use this military shit on us

like gas and noise cannons and lights, we just open fire on them with live bullets.

 

 

all peaceful protests should be attended by people open carrying loaded rifles with live ammo.

+1.  Force, and the threat of force, are the only things they understand.

Actually I think the Clintons took it the good stuff with them when they left.

Well, afterall, they were dead broke.

They left a few things, tho... stains on the rug.

Ferguson isn't even a Cat III chimpout.  It's getting media attention, but it's no CAT V chimpout.

The OIC (Oreo In Chief) has spoken.  Move along or you will be arrested.

He will probably be on time for this one since it is interfering with his vacation.

More misdirection. Everything that is discussed that is NOT about our southern border, western Africa or (possibly) Japan is a "win". This is ALL about buying a little more time.

Igore this:

Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, on Wednesday disclosed that about 198 cases of Ebola virus infections have been recorded in [Nigeria].

Out of these, he said, 177 are said to be in Lagos, while the remaining 21 are in Enugu.

Source: http://dailypost.ng/2014/08/14/nigeria-confirms-198-cases-ebola-lagos-en...

Besides, if anyone really wanted calm in Ferguson the military, er police, would pack up and leave. It's really that simple. Oh, and allow free exercise of R2KBA. Self correcting in hours.

I am as alarmed as anyone about Ebola, but that is the number of people in quarantine as a result of contact tracing, not the number of infections.

Alea Iactaest's picture

My bad. Several paragraphs down it makes clear these are observations, not cases. I read the opening "198 cases of Ebola virus infections have been recorded" and didn't realize these were not confirmed cases.

My apologies for being alarmist.

Well... The government would never do that to Americans...
But...
What are Americans?
In a way....
Most of them...
Came from Africa....
So... Does a birthcertificate make you a American?
Maybe... Maybe not...

Of course they're Americans, more American than a hell of a lot of other so-called Americans squatting in the US without citizenship.

 

Pure Evil's picture

We'll just confer Americanism on everyone.

Alright everyone, stand up, you're now Americans.

Don't bother moving to the US, we'll bring Walmarts, GM dealerships, and trashy violent Hollywood movies, along with worthless celebreties of all types to a neighborhood near you real soon.

As long as all out secret agitators are protected it was worth it, right?

Lemme also guess, the "mommas buried alive with their babies" might not be quite accurate?

Fuck the news and anything you hear nowadays.  

This nation is so corrupt now that I wonder if anything is real.

For the record, I do not watch any news, but I still have to deal with those who do.

Tyler(s):  WTF:  *“We Tear-Gassed Some Folks"*  ?!?!?! 

*PLEASE* tell me that was an oversight putting Quotation Marks around that phrase, and that those words didn't come out of his mouth in exactly that way....

Otherwise, *unbelievable* assininity...

This is a reference to the POTUS acknowledging that the CIA illegally tortured prisoners in the wake of 9/11.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-01/obama-we-tortured-some-folks

"In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values."

Now he only tortures the truth.

I think you need to replace the batteries in your sarcasm meter, as this is about as blatant as snark can get.
