Obama: 'I Know People Are Angry'
cns news ^ | 5/20/14 | Susan Jones

Posted on 05/21/2014 2:03:02 PM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - Amid increasing pressure from both Democrats and Republicans for President Obama to say something about the unfolding scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the president finally did so on Wednesday.

"I know that people are angry and want swift reckoning. I sympathize with that," Obama said. "But we have to let the investigators do their jobs and get to the bottom of what happened. Our veterans deserve to know the facts; their families deserve to know the facts. Once we know the facts, I assure you, if there is misconduct it will be punished."

Damn, always another crisis.

There, another crisis put to rest.

Wow.

Talk in a WH back room somewhere...

"Hey, got a great idea: start a talk show - therapeutic for all those "angry people." Call it, ObamaTalk. Yup, think that's all we'll need. On the other hand, maybe not, could backfire, give people to much room to voice what they really think. Hmmm. Well, let's leave a sleeping dog lay. They'll forget about it soon enough. That always works."

Obama then went on to add: "And damn it I can't help it, it just makes me smile! To quote Hannibal Smith "I love it when a plan comes together!" i It's always so gratifying to me and moochelle to see all our hard work is producing results."

It won’t take that long. Less than a year. Negligent care will be re-labeled as “administrative error” and the rate of death will be reported similar to the best (or some other similar comparison that is a complete non sequitur). Less than a year, maybe less than six months, and we’ll be at “found our scapegoats, fired ‘em, streamlined triage.” Other than the firings, it’ll all be made up gibberish.

Obama knew about the veterans way back when Bush was in office and used it as a platform to bash Bush when Obama was running for Pres.

Obama never tells it like it is...because he never has a true handle on what's going on with anything. For him it's all about his image, and right now hes not going to bring that from the abyss he's brought on himself. He's a deplorable President as are those who brought him into office and continue to support him.

This reminds me of a great scene from the movie “City of Ember”. In it, Bill Murray plays the Mayor, who has been hoarding a personal food supply in a secret bunker while the residents are starving and all the generators are failing.

When he is pressed to do something about the problems, he gives a speech to assuage the citizens, where he announces that:

“We need answers. But beyond answers-
more important than answers-
we need solutions.”

“And in order to find those solutions...
I propose we launch
a thorough investigation.”

All the while knowing that he and his cronies intend to do nothing but aggravate the problems.

First thing I thought of was a transcript [of Rush] posted here where Rush gave a zillion examples of the _resident being outraged over this thing or that.... BO always acting as if he were an outsider looking in, placing himself outside the process, no accountability for his own actions or inactions, completely disconnected from the abominations committed by his own regime under his direction.

This POS is a piece of work all right.

this is traitorous work in disguise.

he is killing off vets by willful gross negligence. attrition.

while claiming he never knew, though he campaigned on this very issue in 2008.

he is a g-d muslim doing jihad and practicing al-taqiyaa.

he will kill off elderly whites via obamacare. he will kill off whites in general by obamacare and his thug civilian army and dhs - remember all those uncommon targets were of white people only.

he is’killing off’the middle class, by proportion majority white. whites don’t get welfare, they pay welfare, as they’ve been told when they try to sign up.

Feign anger, launch bogus investigation which doubles as a cover-up, obfuscate real investigation, then move on, claiming political witch hunt and diversion from real issues.
Repeat for next scandal.

"I know that people are angry and want swift reckoning. I sympathize with that," Obama said

Peculiar choice of words. Sounds downright Biblical. Looks like he unwittingly prophesied regarding his own demise.

Veteran

1

a : an old soldier of long service
b : a former member of the armed forces

2

: a person of long experience usually in some occupation or skill (as politics or the arts)

Compare:

Remnant

1

a : a usually small part, member, or trace remaining
b : a small surviving group —often used in plural

2

: an unsold or unused end of piece goods

Sure puts THIS in a new light:

Daniel 7

7. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and exceedingly strong; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns:

Residue = remnant (rest, remainder)

Interesting word because it's r'osh in reverse. Kind of like Pharaoh's abuse of the Hebrews coming back on his own head.

And on *that* note:

>>>With the recital of the Ten Plagues, each participant removes a drop of wine from his or her cup using a fingertip. Although this night is one of salvation, the sages explain that one cannot be completely joyous when some of God's creatures had to suffer. A mnemonic acronym for the plagues is also introduced: "D'tzach Adash B'achav", while similarly spilling a drop of wine for each word.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passover_Seder#.22Go_and_learn.22

Gematria of the abbreviation = 501, same as r'osh, she'ar, and Barack Hussein Obama (full spelling with the alef Obama between b and m).

Notice that the abbreviation uses only one letter (the bet for firstborn) from the name of the final plague, even though it is comprised of two words (plagues 1-9 are one word each). Here's the list:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagues_of_Egypt

To see how the abbreviation is formed, take each first letter:

D'tzach:

1. dalet = 4
2. tzaddi = 90
3. kaf = 20

Adash

4. ayin = 70
5. dalet = 4
6. shin = 300

B'achav

7. bet = 2
8. alef =1
9. chet = 8
10. bet = 2*

*taken from bechorim (firstborn), but the term is makat bechorim - death/striking of the firstborn

The letter mem is not included. If it were included, the sum total would be 541 not 501. 541 is the gematria of Israel.

No wonder it was left off. Otherwise the plagues on Egypt would turn around and point back at Israel.

Instead the head (r'osh) = 501 = Barack Hussein Obama = ten plagues

Or is he an 11th?

FUBO

It is said that in the days of the Messiah that the government would have “the face of a dog”.

Most interpret that to mean that a dog watches where its master goes runs ahead of its master and acts as if it led him there.

Excellent catch. Thanks. Here's a link with the various English translations. The muslim god is ever so beneficent and merciful (strangest definition of bloodthirsty I've ever seen).

I was thinking along the lines of "recompense", as in Isa 66.6

A voice of tumult from the city, a voice from the temple, the voice of the Lord rendering recompense to his enemies:

Deu 32.35. To me belongs vengeance, and recompense when their foot shall slip; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste:

Here's another angle:

"The Midrash compares Amalek to a dog. Rabbi Yitzchak of Volozhin explains that a dog, when struck with a stick, sinks its teeth into the stick. It fails to realize that its real opponent is the person wielding the stick. So too, Amalek's error is that they view all worldly events at face value. They refuse to perceive the secondary forces which cause every event to occur. They only see the stick, and not the master who brandishes it."

http://www.aish.com/h/pur/t/dt/48951241.html

Obama is the latest gilgul. The gallows (obamacare) he is constructing for Mordecai (a man who is a symbol for people who tell the truth and warn of danger) he is unwittingly building for himself and all of his sons.

"The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, eloquence, trickery, and negotiation."

Sort of like a husband bring nagged by his wife and just says what she wants to hear...

I truly believe he looks down on the people of this country because "we" don't understand his magnanimous sacrifice transforming this country into his utopian vision for us mere mortals...
