Earlier, we heard Dick Bove's take on the fraudclosure settlement. Now it's time for the TOTUS' spin.
He should spend the rest of his life in jail with bubba for this along with Geithner and Bernanke.
Nevermind the obvious.
Today's drinking game:
Fair= 1 shot of your favorite liquor
Bonus= use of the phrase "jail time"= 1 keg of beer ;)
Is it just me, or is he looking a little greyish?
Obama speaks. No one listens. All smoke 'n mirrors, double speak, white washed BS full of rhetoric and big words. Great guy to hustle chics with, other than that he's wholly inadequate as a leader.
Ron Paul 2012.
"Ron Paul 2012" It will never HAPPEN.
A drowning man is thrown a life ring and says "No thanks, I'm good. But when I get 18 feet under can you jump in and pull me out? You know CPR right?"
If it does not happen then it is because of people that give up or give in. It is a result of the fact that they only wield a 'battle axe' made of jello.
My god you made a play of my online name, how clever. The reason I say it will never happen is that he will not even win the primary much less the general election. He is just doing this for one simple reason, he wants to set it up his son Rand for 2016, which is a noble quest for a father to do for his son. You look at any analysis and Ron Paul has no chance.
So, I guess you are saying that he doesn't really believe what he is saying? It has to be humiliating for him to be treated like a leper by the very organization he has been a member of for so many years. No, I believe he is in it to win. However, the majority of the electorate is still enamored by X-Factor and other diversions and choose not to do any critical thinking - takes too much effort.
If you rely solely on other people's analysis you are already lost.
100% agree, I never expected the guy to actually pass one single piece of legislation limiting the power of the government either though.
Ron Paul day 1:
Tries to cut government, sorry need congressional approval for that.
Ron Paul day 2:
Brings all US troops home.
Ron Paul day 3:
Double digit inflation hits as all profitable shipping lanes are now under someone else's control. (maybe wikilaks can dump another 1000 reasons why the world needs the US more than the inverse but I am not holding my breath)
Dope and mange under a different moniker.
Hmm, since you want to be the World's Policeman, I'll gladly buy you a gun, you have to pay for your own planefare though...
LOL, we must remain an empire, otherwise inflation explodes!
That's one of the stupidest arguments I ever heard.
The reason I say it will never happen is that he will not even win the primary much less the general election.
The phrase "self-fulfilling prophecy" springs to mind, here.
And there u have it...the Cocksucker In Chief leaving no doubt he is what I said he was all along. A Bitch Made Banker Owned House Nigga...
Fuck all bankers and their bitch made politicians......
what are you doing now? Trolling for affirmative repsonses? Wasn't your pussy just hurting a week or so ago over some racial issue?
What a brave heart...hurling insults from the safety on net....
U got a rebuttal for my assessment of O'bammer... or u want people here to imagine how tuff u r....waste ur time anonymous bad boy..its cool by me.....
don't deflect it cocksucker. You were all bitchy about the race issue in the not too distant past. Now here you are, on the other side of the fence.
What gives? You find out that your momma had a friendly mail man or something?
Blah Blah Blah, re-elect me for president, Blah Blah Blah...
"Is it just me, or is he looking a little greyish?" The gray tinge is common for the Chicago variety of zombie during the late winter.
oh shit, I just sobered up from yesterday
Honestly, is it really that hard to plan ahead?
This is such a drop in the bucket. $28-billion divided by 2 million under water homes is around $14,000 relief per home owner. The real lost value in the real estate sector is in the trillions.
This was a BIG WIN for the banks!
Yet the homeowner will only get $2k, if they're lucky!
The other $12k? State spending sprees (a.k.a. "filling budget holes").
You are absolutely right!
There are record bonuses to pay for frauds work!
Mark it, 2012 will be a blowout for bankers profit.
Anything non TBTF will fucking eat cardboard.
Buy another 12pak of Red White & Blue Ice.
Read from Armada Markets recent private report that Obama will get re-elected for the second term. Nobody believes in this and that's why it's gonna happen.
Of course Obama is gonna get reelected. EVERYTHING points towards it.
The sheeple LOVES Obama.
Eighty-three percent of those asked in the Washington Post/ABC News survey said they backed Obama's use of unmanned drone aircraft against terror suspects
Seventy-eight percent of those asked approved of Obama's plans to draw down troops in Afghanistan
Voters were also asked whether they approved of the decision to keep the Guantanamo Bay war on terror detention facility in Cuba open and 70 percent approved.
The poll showed that Obama led Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, by 56 percent to 36 percent when respondents were asked who they trusted to combat terrorism.
Respondents also trusted him more on international affairs by a 56 to 37 percent margin.
In previously released findings, the poll found that 50 percent of Americans approved of Obama's job performance the most since early last year.
Obama WILL get reelected. Bet on it. Even if he starts a war against Iran. Even if the economy totally crashes.
If Obama gets re-elected its 100% the GOPs fault.
The Tea Party and the real Independants will NEVER vote for Romney. If they vote at all, they will vote for whoever the Green Party or the Libertarian party put out there. The GOP used to be the conservative party -- conservative on both social AND fiscal issues. Now they are ULTRA conservative on social issues while being big spenders at the same time. They are 180 degrees out of phase with the tea party/independants. Right now the GOP assumes that everyone will get in line behind whoever gets the nomination -- that ain't gonna happen, no way no how. Why they can't see that -- and adjust accordingly -- is beyond me.
"The GOPs fault". Come on, the 2 heads to this beast share a body; It's one beast. If the GOP loses this election that indicates to me that the banking interests don't want to train a new puppet.
First they HERP, then they DERP.
Unless... they mix it all up crazy-like and DERP first.
Maybe that's what bdc63 is talking about? Then I'd have to agree, as everyone knows you never, ever DERP until after you HERP.
I mean, it's on the Georgia Guidestones and everything!
I think he will win again too. Just anecdotal evidence but speaking with several people (idiots) I know, they haven't a clue as to what's really going on. They believe in the genius of the TelePrompTer. They will learn during the second term what idiots they truly are.
I've been yelling from the rooftops around here, but am drowned out by the "Yay! Payback Money Time!" crowd.
Well, that's if there's any response at all, other than blank stares and drooling. But hey, it's a college town, so terminal tenuritis of the brain is a common affliction amongst the "educated" class.
(Funny, if I hadn't dropped out, I'd have a minor in their Keynesian Cult-Studies, but instead have an education in debt slavery. Meanwhile, thanks to Rockwell, Mises and Rothbard, I now recognize its absence of value.)
Had a guy ask me last night if I knew who Paul Krugman was as he believed "printing" was the answer to our problems. Straight face, dead serious. I shit you not.
I said "you know there has never been a single instance in history where that has worked out dont you?"
(crickets.....deer in headlights)
I'm shocked that you could even find someone to discuss it with. Why wasn't he watching ESPN, like the rest of us?
Duke sucks. Just not as hard as NC.
No, most of them won't even learn during the second term.
Need more co-conspirators than that, and a bigger cell.
wow, I can see right through him
It doesn't matter how many times I see the ZH Obama-presser headshot of him with that goofy smile on his face, I laugh out loud. My enjoyment of that picture is second only to the Deer In the Headlights.
He looks like Alfred E. Newman's black cousin...
Looks like Erkel to me.........Did I do that????
LOL. He sure can imitate deep "soul," though, with that trademark vocal affectation where he roughens his voice with faux emotion. It's like a fucking tic when you start seeing it for what it is.
"a fucking bloodsucking tic"
Don't mean to be pedantic, but that needed editing.
Frikkin' Cornholio man, talk about a tic, every time I see him now he's frikkin' Cornholio.
My caption: "Boy lost opportunity of a lifetime"
I mean... the marshmallow plugging that gap would be enough.
Funny, that face bugs the fuck out of me.
Seeing the Obama photo and reading the comments about our much beloved First Kenyan make me all happy and fuzzy feeling. Gotta love it.
I said the same thing only in 2008. I was terribly alone then.
I was with you. He was transparent even back in '08.
sure he was...
One of the things that keeps me humble in life is remembering that I considered voting for him. <shiver running up spine>
People still brainwashed
Can anyone translate? I don't speak douche.
A DNC announcement concurrent to the settlement announcement was that the DNC sold out all the million dollar seats at the convention....
I'm hoping to see their corporate logos covering the fences of the "free-speech" zones, as anyone dumb enough to encage their self deserves it.
I wonder how much of the shadow side of this settlement is going into his re-election coffers...
Well let's see, $766 mln fines to 5 banksters is $153 mln per so... back up to the discount window for free loan and charge out 5-6% interest.
Payback the principle, rest to Totus = $38 mln and change you can believe in.
At the end of the day, Mormon robot talk about contracts and constitutions doesn't put food on the table for millions of Amercians who are still trying to make ends meet....

Therefore....Free shit bitchezzzz!
'swatI'm talkin' about.
Why bother? Just have a mannequin at the podium and play a pre-recorded message. I think that would be more inspiring.
Ficus for POTUS!
(I'm partial to potted plants)
They grow too well.
But they do well in the shade.
And tolerate over-watering.
The way he tips rights his head as he talks reminds me of the martians in 'Mars Attacks'...they had the same speech patterns and physical affectations when they talked...could it be?
The USAs' Dear Leader
He is a good speaker, what's more?
The sound is coming from the wrong hole. Through the ears it could amplify a lot more, I think...
How many rails does he do before his morning briefings?
actually, I think he's more a meth guy being a 99%er...
That's quite a line up of Toads in the back...
I was thinking the exact same thing. That guy behind and to the right looks like a pedophile.
I think I heard him introduce one of them as George Jetson. Is that to see if we're paying attention or did they run out of finctional names?
Well, they sure aren't going to reuse Soetoro.
Ah. I wondered why I couldn't fix my spelling error. These drinking games are gonna be the death of me, but I guess there are worse ways to go.
A better video...
How America is screwed, in RAW numbers.
Just Yesterday he changed his view on Super Pacs: COINCIDENCE?
Super-Duper Pacs are your friend!
"former classmate of mine"
Now that's the most truth I've heard come from him in... forever...
Funny, I don't remember the "investigation" part. Skipped from robo-signing story hitting the news right to settlement talks.
What an amazing collection of crooks assembled all in one place!
"Banks that were rescued by US taxpayer dollars, will be required to right these wrongs"
Hey you gave them the money, asshole.
Still no prosecutions.
The man is bought and paid for.
I can't post what I'm really thinking for fear of a visit from the TSA, FBI, Secret Service, IRS, et al... So I will simply say: screw him.
I wonder if DHS can trace green arrows?
this will free up more $ for ipad purchases...bullish!
"…didn't read what they were signing…" sorta like this legislation an the TOTUS
They'll figure out what's in it after they sign it...
…outside of the obvious $2000 votes
an independant inspector..............LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kenneth Feinberg will be the overseer.
More like that wretched fuck of fraud, Ken Lay.
The puppet king of Puppetshire speaks his puppet words,
Its depressing to watch what has happened to leadership not just in America but globally.
Leaders? The last of those types were taken out in the revolutions and resulting world wars. As you note, Puppetshire is filled with nothing but followers of the revolutionary financiers.
you lie - 28 billion dollar re-election fund
Well, he's the Great Appeaser when it comes to the oligarchs and their toadies, at least.
He kept saying,
Whose economy, now?
I think he must mean their economy.
Con-e France Us sang that, right?
Dedicated to all the people who didn't vote for Ron Paul in 2008:
"we have an independent monitor t omake sure they pay what they owe or they will be forced to pay it back plus a penalty...the penalty will be that they will be invited to join Michelle, the kids and me on our next vacation at either Nantucket or Hawaii."
BO's moment of truth is obviously not today.
OOOO! a bank "monitor". We had "monitors" in grade school. I am so sure that will clear everything up! </sarc>
They will simply reprovision the hope-monitors.
Eric Holder is a worthless piece of shit.
Does he have eyeballs? I couldn't see them.
that's giving him way to much credit...
Good job, Barry. $1m speaking arrangements when youre done with this gig.
President Obama "banking" on there being more deadbeat/criminal voters in November than honest contract-abiding people. Damn, he is probably correct.
...Rosemary's Baby (AKA ''The Lawless One'') just told you to ''GO TO HELL''.
obama is lying criminal cunt
HORSE SHIT. PUKE!
I do not know how this man can bewitch such a high number of persons...don't really know.
I don't know why they can't hear Ron Paul. They must not want to.
Right, nailed it Jena.
Lifetime of television. Their emotional and intellectual responses are completely programmed. Takes at least two years of complete rejection of the medium before they start to wake up. It's worse than crack really, because only the ones who have made the effort to distance themselves from it even realize there is a problem.
Fear is a powerful motivator. Combined with hopelessness it generates extreme apathy, lest a person become consumed by their own cognitive dissonance.
You know you're amongst them when you hear their battle-cry, "But, we have to do something!"
My response, as always, is "How about stop perpetrating evil via fraud?" At which point the person adopts one of several incoherent/combative positions aimed at undermining my integrity. Because to them, all I am is an obstructionist.
Never mind it's their pure idiocy that I'm obstructing...
Despite all noise devoted to it, the last thing most people want it to be told the truth.
4 million americans have been foreclosed according to TOTUS today, the same exact number 4 million that were supposed to be helped by HAMP 2 years ago by this same TOTUS
Wait, so you're saying that they got their math right the first time?
Wonders never cease.
er,just a minute Mr Bollocks Embalmer...are the banks paying this 25 billion back from the hundreds of billions the taxpayer gave them?...
Mr Embalmer,Mr Embalmer,where've you gone? Come back and explain...
This is a pathetic use of money. Obama said it has been 6 years....... he is pathetic. This is by far the ugliest political move ever. I'm telling you this man has zero respect for our constitution and zero religious morals. Zero!
You sure have extremely high standards for puppets.
Where is Vegas? his nickname for Obama (chalky Soetoro) always makes me giggle, (my co-workers are looking at me weird) I TRULY LOVE ZH! I know what it feels like to laugh on the way to my execution. Peace to all who read ZH, whatever your beliefs are.
now that that's solved. time for deadbeats to catch up on their mortgage payments, tax payments, school taxes! am i right or what?
The Deadbeat Nation. I meet more and more people who are not paying for anything anymore...credit cards...mortgages....rent....doctor bills....you name it.....
And yet zero down houses are still being given out.....
why does he do this around lunchtime......hard to keep anything down after seeing this guy and his assemblage of scum, crooks, thieves, and liars.
I wouldnt be surprised if they are using some form of narcotic to control O at this point.. he seems to be under complete control of the Banks. Must serve the banks.. must serve..
...what? you thought the Pharoah's inauguration ritual was something other than the invocation of Loyd's ''god(s) work'' (AKA Lucifer)? Did you not notice the pyramid on the Fed debt note, with the words ''In God We Trust''? ...or did you not notice the worlds largest phalic and it's ''as above so below'' reflection in the reflection pool in the Capitol City of America? Lol
What happens if EVERYONE files a tax extension???
The IRS investigation unit takes 5 months off to surf porn. But nothing else happens...you still have to "estimate" and pay.
Rephrase, what if everyone gets an extension and is OK with paying penalties.
Will Benron loan me the money?
Well the best I can say is, at least Obama is consistently on the wrong side.
Leave it to Oblamo to welcome the debt free as slaves to the lawless money plantation.
More bullshit from the Commander of bullshit.
Why pay any bills at all?? Money is nothing but Fraud Inc.
Wheres Timmy to tell us that they saved the banks, but lost the fucking nation!?
...Dear Americans, if you do not accept the moral hazard, my new world order, and you try to defend; the Constitution, life, liberty, freedom, independence and justice for all, ...well you are a terrorist. If you say anything against my new world order, the moral hazard, you are subject to NDAA and can be stripped of your citizenship, tortured and killed ...without public review.
Thank you, all you Suicide Vampire Squids.
GO TO HELL
and God bless America.
Love, Rosemary's Baby
Silly, he doesn't need to strip you of your citizenship. He can just kill citizens extra-judiciously if he wants.
This 'settlement' was money coming from my pocket by increased bank fees and socialized cost into a deadbeat borrowers pocket. Redistribution in vivo. Fuck it, why try anymore?!
I don't need to hear what the Manchurian Candidate has to say, I already know.
Obummer spouting off about the "settlement" with Eric "Three Blind Mice" Holder and a bunch of other puffy faced lackeys behind him to crow about BULLSHIT.
You are FULL OF IT!!!!
You SOLD OUT THE POPULACE!!!
You DID NOTHING YOU ASS!!!
...what Rosemary's Baby just said was, your 1999 mortage inside the Beltway was cheaper than rent, BUT, now the people that own that home, the working people that can now not afford to own that home becaue of the ''moral hazard'' tax inflation, they must sell their home, BUT, rent is now to high inside the Beltway if you worked and always paid your bills. So, if you think you can move outside the Beltway and drive to work to escape the moral hazard, by renting a room in a house filled with people like you, well, you are going to pay for that at the pump etc... and you will need more food stamps etc... but it still will not be enough, so just go to sleep in the street and someone, a Pig or Soldier, will come along and put you in a prison cell that will cost more.
I wonder how this will affect staffers ability to pay kickbacks to their benefactors who employ them? Will the politicos become so destitute as to have to openly seek bribes, undermining the sanctity of their office?
This could become a national scandal.
Hate to bust up the 24/7 Obama hate-a-thon here, but you're way off the facts.
It's the GOP who led the charge to get this done. Obama originally vetoed the bill (HR 3808), and it stuck. The House GOP voted 169 for, 5 against, in trying to force the bill past the veto.
I'm not saying the Democrats aren't corrupt as well, but the GOP is clearly worse. If you ACTUALLY care about this stuff, want to change it, and live in reality rather than FoxTV-land, you will vote Democrat in 2012 (unless you're lucky enough to live in the district of someone like Ron Paul).
The Democratic party absolutely has plent of corruption - no argument there. But there is an obvious difference between the two parties. The GOP is way out front, in handing over control of America to the financial 'services' industry. Look at the vote totals, below, then explain to us how "there's no difference between the parties".
We can fix this problem in three years. Vote out the clowns who supported the takeover. If your two candidates were both involved, vote out the one who was the dirtiest of the two. Politicians are nothing if not good at scenting a shift in the wind. Do this for the 2012 and 2014 elections, and we'd have substantially different Congress.
The bankers have more lobbyists in DC than everyone else, combined. The GOP votes virtually in a block for every bill giving the bankers more control of DC.
E.g. Senate vote tallys:
Gramm-Leech-Bliley (repealed Glass-Steagall): 54 'yes' - 53 Republicans, 1 Democrat; 44 'no' - all Democrats
Dodd-Frank (weak piece of crap, but best Americans could do - Republicans fillibustered anything stronger): 60 'yes' - 57 Democrats, 3 Republicans; 39 'no - all Republicans.
House vote tally on Gramm-Leech-Bliley: 243 yes, 57 no. The 57 'no' votes were 50 Democrat, 7 Republican
The financial 'services' industry is donating to the Romney campaign at 5X the rate they're donating to Obama. Guess which one they think is better for their interests? The average donation to Romney's SuperPac is $103 thousand dollars, the average to Omaba's is 55 bucks.
