there has to be a way to calculate the actual time he devotes to presidential matters.  for instance, it takes an approximate time to write a speech, communicate with embassadors, meet with XXXXX, so on and so on. all of this can be quantified.  and i will bet my bottom dollar that the numbers just dont add up when the rubber meets the road.  thus proving that he has handlers, doesnt write speeches, doesnt meet with anybody of importance- only when the cameras need some shots for a magazine cover.  he is the definition of a manchurian candidate.

Obozo always was just the fall guy who's only real job was to placate the masses with his bullshit slogans and programs.

Everybody in DC and Wall Street has always known this so they're grabbing all they can get out of the resulting "give a shit" mentality of his admonistration.

Which is why the whole thing is about to implode violently as we've started to see with Ferguson.

The Federal Reserve knows it's all a lost cause now and so they're only concern is saving the Fed which means the U.S. dollar.

The Fed Res knows it but they cannot save the Fed or the USD.

Those in the know are buying assets than can be re-converted back into the 'new' local currencies (i.e./maybe SDRs) after the aftermath - assets like farm land, Ag Au, some stocks

that will survive.

Yeah, I used to think that George W. Bush was worse.  He probably still *could* be worse than Obama by sheer number of days but ... these last couple weeks have really made me not want to equate them anymore.

Crap in Iraq, crap in Syria, crap in Gaza, crap in Libya, crap in Ukraine.  And he goes golfing.  True, Bush made a mess but did he really take time off when he made two messes in the middle East?  Obama inheritted two, so yes, that's true.  However, Obama doubled down and made messes in Libya and Ukraine and took ZERO steps to deescalate anywhere else.  He's made sh*t worse in Syria and Iraq by training people like al-Baghdadi...

So, even if Bush had more "days off", Bush could get away with it because he made fewer messes than Obama has...

"Obama inheritted two, so yes, that's true." - sorry, but straight from the DNC talking points.  The single party created those two messes (you know, for the sake of American kids) and included most from the D and R brands...So Obama's party was front and center with the R party supporting Bush's cowboy/oil wars (as the left might say), and only when it was convenient for them politically (say around early 2004), did the Ds show any cracks.  But the establishment Ds and Rs were pretty much lock step on Iraq, and certainly lock step on Afghanistan, and still pretty much are re: 'the war on terror' all these trillions and many lives later...and yes, Syria and ISIS and Iraq are all fiendishly intertwined, and there are no very easy answers to Middle East policy, although I think Ron Paul is sounding wiser and wiser as we've moved along..

Do you/we doubt that the establishment power in both parties is annointed/controlled by the same source, have the same paymasters - that the puppet masters are the same?  Obama's performance these past 6 years should prove that quite well..

You know, I think Obama was a full on commie when running for President but once he got "the talk" he did what he was told but fully tried to implement his vision as much as possible.  Lately it seems he has not only recognized the futility of his dreams of fixing Stalin and Mao's miskates but now understands that it just doesn't matter.

It would be nice of him to use his outlaw President status to declare war on the Fed and its owners in a last desperate gasp attempt to wrest control for himself.  I doubt he could pull it off but he and they might weaken each other significantly which would open a window of opportunity for the rest of us.

He has to go for treason, not impeachment. The evidence is there if the military has any courage to stand up and fire the boss for violating the law and Constitution.

That would free up Gowdy on Benghazi from political considerations and pressure to go after the puppetmasters like Jarrett who the evidence will point to as the pointwoman in the whole mess as it went down.

Actually, it is constitutional if circumstances merit the action.  If circumstances merit the action then it is practically required in order for the military uphold it's oath to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States" which supercedes the bit about being loyal to the President.

You don't think the military doesn't understand the clearest in this deal, that their perks and goodies will be the first to go in a "return to the Constituaton"???

They have code language in the .gov worker world, it goes something like "never ask permission, always ask for forgiveness" and "it's all just talk until someone doesn't get their paycheck"!!!

They know they are untouchable and now the average Joe is starting to realize slowly that truth too!! But I think it's a little too late for that, but will see!

The interesting thing is how a golf obsessed president has "accomplished" so much in the world while playing so much golf. However, it becomes quite clear when one considers Obama as a CIA puppet and figurehead implementing his orders before heading off to the links.

No doubt he is a CIA puppet.  His first job out of college was working for a CIA-front company:

Obama defends CIA torturers

President Barack Obama went before the television cameras Friday afternoon to defend CIA Director John Brennan and the agency itself, while admitting for the first time that the CIA tortured prisoners at secret “black site” prisons. “We tortured some folks,” Obama declared almost casually. He then proceeded to excuse and justify the torturers.

In the course of his White House press conference, Obama declared his “full confidence” in Brennan only one day after the release of a CIA inspector general’s report that exposed the CIA chief as a brazen liar. Brennan had denounced claims by the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, of illegal and unconstitutional CIA spying on the committee staff, which was investigating the CIA torture program carried out during the administration of George W. Bush. The inspector general’s report admitted that the spying had taken place.

The CIA’s surveillance of the Senate, which is legally mandated to oversee the agency, is a stark expression of the unchecked powers of the unelected spooks and generals who run the intelligence and military agencies. The fact that the top US spy agency can carry out secret torture programs, act to sabotage a congressional probe of this criminal activity, and then go scot-free reflects the disintegration of American democracy and the emergence, behind the formal trappings of elections, etc., of the framework of a police state.

Obama himself—whose first job after graduating from college was as an analyst at Business International Corporation, an institution with well-documented CIA connections—functions in practice as a front man for the military and intelligence bureaucracy.

ISIS: The jihadist movement stamped “Made in America"

For three years, the US, along with the Gulf states and Turkey, poured billions into “opposition” groups, supposedly to unnamed “moderates,” but in reality to Al Qaeda-linked Sunni groups such as al-Nusra and ISIS to spearhead a sectarian war. The US, Turkey and Jordan have operated a base in Jordan where US instructors trained dozens of ISIS members. In an article last year, the New York Times confirmed that the CIA assisted Arab governments and Turkey by airlifting weaponry to these groups in Jordan and Turkey. The Guardian reported last March that British and French instructors were also involved.

Other ISIS members were trained near Incirlik Air Base near Adana, Turkey, where US forces are based. After completing their training, they went to Syria and later Iraq

Reason to own silver

To fill a 20 gal. gas tank

Year 1979 =  6 hrs labor or 3.4 oz silver

Year 2014 = 9 hrs labor or 3.4 oz silver


We’ve been robbed

That's your reason to own silver?

A family can't eat for the price of an ounce of silver these days and I guarantee you in 1979, for $20 you could have a family dinner of steak and lobster.

"...and I guarantee you in 1979, for $20 you could have a family dinner of steak and lobster."

$20, which was 4 oz silver then and 1 oz today. Help me out please cause I cant follow your logic.

In Oblama's defense, all the major, important decisions have already been made for him (a lot of them made years ago). All he needs to do is simply following the instructions or reading something off the teleprompter.


No serious, original, independent or critical thinking required (nor is it encouraged). So he can afford to play goof whenever he likes. Remember how many vacations Georgie W Bushit boy had taken while in office?


Similar situation here.

Its not just pure numbers. Its the in your face opulence and indifference he shows.

Camp David. Crawford too but for special reasons. Georgie Bushit boy had long gotten used to opulence long before he moved to the White House. Big difference in family background and wealth there. You get tired of prime ribs and steaks if you eat them three times a week.


The important thing common to both is the tremendous damage they have inflicted on America and Americans, and the indifference both have shown while doing it.


Both have been puppets. And there is a good reason why they were chosen in the first place.

But its implications about the US Senatorial Reb/Blue Oligarchy  complicity, as well that of France, in supporting armed factious elements who in fact have subsequently COALESCED into becoming  the IS Caliphate; and have beheaded an innocent Reporter doing his job; are just awesome/

On this issue as more secrets are now revealed by anonymous sources to the french press the position today is that France delivered in 2013 to Syrian rebels the same kind of small arm weapons as currently to the Peshmerga Kurds (12 mm rapid fire and armoured car rockets). But the Army source maintains it was SOLELY to the moderate ASL not to the Salafists and Al-Nosra (al Qaeda branch).

So lets see how this develops.

Hollande now is openly blaming Obama for not having followed through when the Assad chemical attack was established.

He maintains if there had been rapid intervention then by West Putin would not have been able to make his move in Syria and also in Ukraine. That is NOW official french position which shows that France and oBama are OPENLY at loggerheads as the Syraq problem now festers.

Awesome divide in West alliance now coming out into open.

Always thought Romney the oddest of "choices," but then thought he was "chosen" to lose. The Mormons have so much dirt under their fingernails and are such a weird group; notice no one lives in Utah or Idaho except Mormons? And the few who aren't complain Constantly about the use of federal/govt resources by the Mormons for their own cult. 

Now the Republican presidential candidates will have to demand that the Republican party jettison that carpetbagger Mormon and set them free of him. Saw Ryan and Romney sitting side-by-side for an interview. What a joke. What has Romney done except steal money by destroying companies? Answer: NOTHING. 

Like Oboma in the four years he was "governor" of Massachusetts, he was physically out of the state for two of those four years. Oversaw gay marriage and socialized health care while governor. Now what about that says "Republican>" 

The Republicans donlt need the Mormons and need to get rid of them; as the US should have taken away their "church" status years ago when they challeneged the US govt to a showdown over creating their own defacto country witin the US. 

Whoever runs for the Republicans had better make it clear; they don't need Romney's approval and they'd better refuse to sit down with him. Anyone who'se been around the mormons knows just how creepy they are; also have the highest rates of child sexual their papers and you see just the edges of it.

President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.

“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.”

The GAO rejected the idea that the action was legal and sidestepped the Obama team’s suggestion that the law is unconstitutional.

“It is not our role or our practice to determine the constitutionality of duly enacted statutes,” the report says. “In our view, where legislation has been passed by Congress and signed by the President, thereby satisfying the bicameralism and presentment requirements in the Constitution, that legislation is entitled to a heavy presumption in favor of constitutionality.”

Barack Obama, at a recent rural elementary school assemblyin South Carolina, asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds, holding the audience in total silence. Then he said into the microphone,

"Children, every time I clap my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence"

Then, little Darrell, with a proud South Carolina drawl, pierced the quiet and said,

"Well, dumb ass,  stop clapping!"

 When we look at the definition of propaganda we find it is a form of communication that is aimed towards influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.

Today a program at the White House creates a message by spinning, scrubbing, molding, and shaping it, they then send it out to the public. They often go as far as to make a, "call to action", where those listening are encouraged to push forward their agenda. This is one of the ugly realities of modern communication, the ability to send out millions of messages directly and unfiltered, Obama has taken all this to a new level. More on this subject in the article below.
