Tyranny "Lurking Just Around The Corner"

Tyler Durden's picture

18 months ago President Obama warned a graduating class to "reject" those that "warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner." It appears he went full Keyser Soze...


Source: Investors





"Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can't be trusted.


We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn't want to. But we don't think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it's not about what America can do for us, it's about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process."

Tyranny "Lurking Just Around The Corner"

Tyranny Lurking Around Twitter, Too.


State Department trolls Islamic State militants on Twitter



Our colleague Anne Gearan described in September these new strategies by the State Department to

“counter online militant propaganda with a U.S. messaging campaign.”   “The countermessage is simple:

These guys are lying to you, and if you go to Syria to fight Western oppression you’ll just end up

killing innocent Muslims,” Gearan wrote.

The counter-countermessage is also simple: The US State Department is lying to you, and if you go to war to defend the Petrol Dollar you’ll just end up killing innocent people.

  • Iraq invading Kuwait had nothing to do with US-assisted horizontal drilling into Iraq.  Lie.
  • Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Lie.
  • Syrian launched gas attacks against its own people. Lie.
  • MH-17 was shot down by Russian Separatists in Ukraine, not Ukrainian nazis put in power by a US coup d'etat.  Lie.
  • 13 years and counting since invading and occupying Pipelineistan to capture Osama Bin Ladin.  Lie.

Tyranny is NOT "Lurking Just Around The Corner"

Despite however deeply we may wish it to be that far away...

Barry Soetero Husein Obama .... the most well documented liar in the history of the world.


Freedom isn't free. It shouldn't be a bragging point that 'Oh, I don't get involved in politics,' as if that makes someone cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic. Liars and panderers in government would have a much harder time of it if so many people didn't insist on their right to remain ignorant and blindly agreeable.

Bill Maher


The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they're not.

Hillary Clinton


I have never lied about my relationship with Bill Clinton. The only proven liar, at this point, and the only admitted liar, is Bill Clinton; not Gennifer Flowers, not Kathleen Willey, not Paula Jones and not Monica Lewinsky, at this point. He is the only proven liar.

Gennifer Flowers

You have two choices with Obama. You either believe that he is a man of Christ... or you think he's a liar. And I'm surprised by the number of atheist free thinkers that support Obama, and their argument is essentially, 'He's lying about being religious 'cause you have to do that to get elected.' It's a horrible reason to like somebody.


Penn Jillette


The good news is that, according to the Obama administration, the rich will pay for everything. The bad news is that, according to the Obama administration, you're rich.

The best one, of course, is his authors biography which, from 1991-2007, claimed he was "born in Kenya". Explain that one away, Progressive useless idiots!

Billy the Poet's picture

It's a lie that fit Obama's needs at the time. He wasn't born in Kenya and his father was not Kenyan but rather an American citizen. Like so many other misconceptions about Obama that which is widely accepted as being a lie is simply an attempt to direct attention away from a different lie.

A poster (1920) from the National Socialist Worker’s Party.

“ALL people tell us: Your programme appears to be correct but one point prevents us from joining you is that we don’t understand your OPPOSITION TO JEWS. Are there not also good Jews and, vice versa, CHRISTIAN SCOUNDRELS? Aren’t you aware of the Christian profiteers, blackmarketeers, exploiters, capitalists and their press? Can Jews be blamed if they are not German? We will explain to you: We fight all kinds of capital, Jewish or German, which is only used to earn interest, an income without labour or effort. We fight the Jews, not because they are the sole owners of such capital, but because they are the founders of this system and the deliberately hinder any opposition to it. We fight them not because they are the only profiteers but because their one percent of the population represents 90 percent of all profiteers. We fight them not because they are the only gluttons in our present time of need, but because their one percent of the entire population includes 90 percent of all gluttons. But above all, we fight them because of their ability to appear innocent whilst allowing others to take the blame for their deeds. Those who cause millions of small hoarders to be hunted as CHRISTIAN PROFITEERS so that they themselves can safely make millions on the black market. Above all we fight them because they only support a law so long as they themselves are not directly affected, but as soon as it is applied to criminals of their own race it becomes JEW-BAITING. We fight them as a foreign race not because they are non-German but because they fraudulently pretend to be German. We fight them because, as Mommsen says, they are ‘emzymes of destruction’ to countries and races. Whilst destroying countries and driving starving people to emigrate to strange lands they, themselves, settle in these countries. We fight their actions as they cause a RACIAL TUBERCULOSIS OF NATIONS. And we are convinced that convalescence can only begin when this bacteria has been removed. This is why we appeal to you ALL to attend the big public MEETING TODAY, FRIDAY August 13, in the Hofbrauhaus. Adolf Hitler will speak about: WHY ARE WE ANTI-SEMITICS? The meeting begins at 7:30pm. Listen to us first and then decide. An entrance fee of 50 Phennings will be charged to cover expenses.”

"Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Lie." Better start reading the NY TIMES there, Ace. They reported on all the chemical weapons found and never reported. I believe chem weapons are classified as WMDs.

How is Progress! on the path the country was already on a "radical tranformation"?  It seems to me he just dumbed down the effort to the point it's so obvious even a caveman can see it.

suteibu's picture

I get it, man.  The point is, he used the system to get what he wanted.  I've come to the realization that he won this battle.  All the crying in the world won't make that change...and neither will the newly elected, supposedly conservative and Constitutional-abiding Congress.  Time to lick our wounds and prepare for the next battle lest the war end now.

What self-rule? Here's proof of NSA control from Snowden in your own government's memo you were never meant to see:

The most extraordinary passage in the memo requires that the Israeli spooks “destroy upon recognition” any communication provided by the NSA “that is either to or from an official of the US government.” It goes on to spell out that this includes “officials of the Executive Branch (including the White House, Cabinet Departments, and independent agencies); the US House of Representatives and Senate (members and staff); and the US Federal Court System (including, but not limited to, the Supreme Court).”


The stunning implication of this passage is that NSA spying targets not only ordinary American citizens, but also Supreme Court justices, members of Congress and the White House itself. One could hardly ask for a more naked exposure of a police state.

The Zionist cries out "anti-semite!" as he spies on you...

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Just tell them you're a "Pro-Semite anti-Zionist" and for them to FOAD already.

ZHers, AIPAC assholes and Zionists would do well to educate themselves on who exactly the "Semitic People" are. Start at Wikipedia: Here and here.

Speaking of Liar, Liar... "And the truth shall set you free! "  And for extended (3 minute) clip from the scene, see this little gem of a clip.

Note that of all the Semitic tribes and languages, there is no "Ash_K_Nazi" language or tribe.  Also, being pro-Aramaic (the language of Jesus), which IS one of the Semitic languages, most likely makes you a "pro-Semite". 

Praise the Lord, and hope you die, you smegma-licking Zionists.

I just want to know what all these fucking militia guys are doing ya know the so-called fighters of the constitution and blah blah ...they came running out for a rancher and then poof back to crying online and drinking beer I assume

LFMayor's picture

Check yourself, fool.  Maybe that rancher was worth it and your hurt feelings... aint?

What are YOU ready and prepared to do?  

Sub MOA's picture

So the one man was worth it ( which I never said he wasn't Jack ass) but the rest of the fucking country is not get a better arguement dipshit ...

LFMayor's picture

The point is that about 1/2 of this country is not worth it.  So how about we let these fucking idiots burn it all down around them,  sort of a rapid, fast paced Darwinian selection event.  Then, we can sift the ashes for usable nails and build it back.  Along with other good fun that is funny, like hanging the ones responsible if they're still alive.  Or even if they're dead, if it's a slow day.

Now once again, are you ready?  What are you going to do?  Worry about your own damn AO first.

The logistics worked at Bundy ranch, simple as that. In the desert one can apparently get away with sitting on an overpass with heavy weaponry. Most other places the local authorities are going to nix such activity. It would have been great if the Oath Keepers could have liberated Justina Pelletier (for example) but it just wasn't in the cards.

Personally I believe the day is near where someone will say as  Major John Buttrick  implored the men down by the river when the British soldiers  came up, "Fire, for God's sake, fellow soldiers, fire!" and they will and it will be on.


I actually thought it got pretty close when the veterans threw the barricades up against the White House fence just about a year ago.


LFMayor's picture

Those people had big brass ones that day. I wish, now I can only fucking wish I would have gone and helped.  That was the perfect op,  a real live "flash mob" and I'm thinking it Scared the Living Shit out of some people who thought they were beyond reach.

Freddie's picture

Some weird stuff that day.  The Bureau of Land Management goons were Blackwater/Academi/Xe paid mercs.  The ugly MF'er at the gate was a merc seen in the video in Iraq or Afghan.

The Las Vegas PD supposedly had their SWAT unit one exit up the road to come in if a war started.

The guys on horses were unarmed and had a lot of guts.  They also knew people had their back on that day.

The MF'er Mercs killed a few of Bundy's animals before they were rescued by the cowboys.

Sub MOA's picture

First of all my AO is just dandy.  In asking where these groups are is a valid question maybe to get a news worthy insight as to what they're views are these days or maybe just to smoke one out (such as yourself possibly?) either way I got an answer.  When it does burn down maybe we'll meet one day...or not who's to say right ?  Thanks for your opinion

LFMayor's picture

So, you showed up here on this site a whole 8 days ago just to protect us all from being outed by moles and agent provacatuers. 

Gee thanks, handsome stranger!

Welcome to fight club, you've got a lot merit badges to earn.

some how this got a bit twisted ah whatever ...anyway I just threw out a question with some sarcasm and humour but I suppose it flew a bit to high, actually I was surprised anyone commented at all.  Oh and after 3 years I decided to join the posts... a form of therapy lol to save whats left of my sanity if indeed there is any.


ps if anyone can't get sarc  tough shit I am not using that stupid fucking /s tag  it's akin to having to explain a joke.
