They need to call in the IT people and change Bernanke's printer settings.  When he Ctrl-P'd that one, it went to FT instead of the Teleprompter....

Hillary's Madness Caught on Tape!

Apologies for OT but could everyone make this video viral.

Hillary Clinton on Gadaffi: We Came. We Saw. He Died!

Damn.  You are putting Hill on trial right now?  We already convicted her as being a horrible wench.  But fair enough, she deserves the world to see how she wiggles with pleasure at the mention of death again and again.

Note, her play, that script, is to inundate housewives everywhere into thinking death (and most accurately, murder) is good, so they too act out Hill's role (and not just women but squirely men, too).  It is not just the rhetoric the illuminatti is trying to implement, but the mindset.  Remember that- they are implementing the mindset to think in the way of the death cult.

Scull and Bones, bitchez.

Or perhaps, Heil to the Chief?

I suspect Obama has merely lost touch with his younger self. One of the rare examples of his writing comes from his stint at Columbia U. In the university's Sundial magazine,  dated March 10, 1983, there appears an article "by Barack Obama" titled "Breaking the War Mentality". Buried in the text he chides then-president Reagan about the pace of negotiations with the Soviets regarding nuclear weapons: "By being intransigent, Reagan is playing directly into the Russians' hands". Aside from his being wrong in that assessment, it is clear that Obama is now trying to follow the Reagan playbook, sending troops to Libya, Uganda and who knows where else. If liberating Grenada was good, killing Gaddafi is better must have been his reasoning. Obama also has one-upped Reagan on intransigence with his my-way-or-the-highway attitude when addressing Republicans.


Perhaps he can write a new article, "Implementing the War Mentality", explaining how things are different when one has the power.

Doesn't he have to do something sometime?  To prove to himself he deserves th job?  Or do you really think he is Nero?

I understand why they have him speak plainly, so that the dumb people can repeat his jibberish, but wouldn't they have him write at least proper?

"In the US, we’ve had 19 straight months of private sector job growth and added more than 2.5m private sector jobs."

Now he's progressed from "lying when his lips are moving" to "lying when his typing finger is moving"!

(Or, more accurately, now publishing lies written by his handlers rather than just reading lies written by his handlers).

I don't think he is incorrect.  Job growth has been exceedingly slow but nevertheless continuous since a couple of months after he took office.  The stock market also bottomed in March 2009, a couple of months after he took office.  You can question whether it is sustainable, whether it is as good as we would have had if we tried other things, but you fricken can't call it a lie.

So, they were right: There is one born every minute!

Have you looked at the shadowstats.com unemployment figures recently? (or ever?). http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts

They report unemployment without hedonic adjustments (the bullshit factor), seasonal adjustments (made up 'balancing items') or other fudges ('the dog ate my homework' new criteria for deleting more from the count). They compare apples (those counted decades ago) with apples (those counted today).

They show not only that total unemployment has risen since 1Q2008, but that private payrolls have waterfalled down since then.

So, I fricken well can, and fricken well do, call it a fricken bald-faced lie! And so should you....

There was one interview with the almighty O - I thought it was so surreal. Because O went on and on how about people are disappointed by politicans in DC and stuff like that. He sounded not like he was the president of your country, just a bystander.

Funny and sad to watch this. People here in Germany were also high on hopium. They would have elected the O here too. It was almost like a hysteria. Makes you think. But it confirms that Germans are still looking to America for guidance.

Maybe the Germans liked Obama because he speaks Austrian so well. As far as I can tell, he makes just as much sense in that language as he does in English/American.

In a single word:


The root of this word is 'terror' and quite appropriate as such.

How can any thinking person in the US of A possibly consider voting for a president? How many obamas, bushes, clintons, reagans do we have to see before walking away from what passes as democracy in the US???

The editorial saddens me more than angers me----over and over, day after day the same old same old, and we still find it funny

His speaches were enough of a communique.  Penmenship lasts forever.  This is his first op-ed, right?  How many speeches has he given?  The speeches will get lost in the annals of history, but this will stand alone; glaringly alone.

I learn so much on this site. From Mr Lennon Hendrix I learned that Obama has lost his speeches up History's ass. Do you have to go to the ER to dig that out, or is it best to just leave it there? I know history does not like it, but it is kind of used to being butt raped given that the victor gets to write it and all...

There is one speech that always will be remembered with Kaiser Wilhelm II. - Die Hunnenrede (Hun Speech). We still laugh about that one.

"Should you encounter the enemy, he will be defeated! No quarter will be given! Prisoners will not be taken! Whoever falls into your hands is forfeited. Just as a thousand years ago the Huns under their King Attila made a name for themselves, one that even today makes them seem mighty in history and legend, may the name German be affirmed by you in such a way in China that no Chinese will ever again dare to look cross-eyed at a German."

What stands glaringly alone is his failure to release  grades or writings of HIS from his college days.  You would think he would be proud of papers written as president of the Harvard review not a one of them has seen the light of day and where are his grades..  Imposter, fabian marinated in a soup of African post colonialism and white guilt..

And he married chewbacca, his judgement is in serious doubt..
