Wow I never realized we were so in sync—great post.I have always viewed zero as just a Manchurian paid for front man with a wife that really is a beard courtesy of the Down Low club:

http://hillbuzz.org/time-to-tell-everyone-you-know-about-jeremiah-wrights-down-low-club-barackobama-presobama-26407

and Rev. Wright.


Well, I don’t doubt Obama is a former down-lower but its his credentials as a front lady for Soviet-like Marxism in America and his ability to keep his communist leanings and origins in the closet that concern me most.

Essentially, I think he was a creation of Castro, who in the 1970s ordered Bernadine Dohrn to stop bombing and go home to the USA and find an acceptable black communist candidate for president who would be able to “shame” racist white America into electing him.

She and Billy Ayers spent decades at the task, which in itself ought to tell us all how ferocious and pathological communists are, and finally found Obama—just what Castro had ordered.

The rest of the story we all know.

But Castro himself was driven by Mao’s “long march” theory of communist takeover (Gramsci and Alinsky were devotees of this too) and by then-KGB director Yuri Andropov’s certainty that America, of all the places on earth, was the most susceptible to Stalin-like Cults of Personality in its culture and politics.

So you get a “Messiah” or a “One” that exists like the grill on the front of the train pulling the rest of the rotting hulk of miserable sure-to-fail ideas with it.

But communism is the favored tool of grifters who only live for Power and Privilege and will spew any nonsense or destroy anything that needs destruction to get what they want.

That’s what it is: it’s the most effective form of organized crime ever developed. It has stolen more wealth and rubbed out more enemies than all of the rest of the criminal entities by orders of magnitude.

With a sunny smile of course and the offer of a “workers paradise.” And, you know, a “fair shot” too.

Yes, and they are trying to sell this one new 7.8 Unemployment Number as a “TREND”, when it is quite commonly spoken that it takes at least 3 months to show a trend may be happening. A real Economic Trend is taken over a longer time period.

Economic Trend Definition
http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/economic-trend.html#ixzz28cwMtKX9

The overall direction in which a nation’s economy is moving. Most business managers need to be aware of the prevailing direction of the economic trend for the product markets and countries in which they operate in order to make more accurate and effective plans for their company.

“incomprehensible support of this narcissistic madman we have in office”.
___________
I agree wholeheartedly with you, but it is larger than O-the-puppet in office. It is the system he represents which has grown so stong it is strangling our country.

How does it come to this? We see France lost to Islam: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/12268#.UHFfHJjMhd4

Sarkozy started to put his foot down to curb Islam and Sharia, and his reward was removal from office.

We need more brave people to stand up and lead. And we need an informed electorate. Damn the so-called media. It needs replaced by the real truth peddlers (internet, blogs, talk radio and FR).

MTP, Chuck Todd appalled that ANYONE could criticize the 7.8% UE report. Demeaning the credibility of our institutions. Damaging our faith in government.

And here is the difference. Article 1, Section 2 of the US Constitution: The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.

That means the federal government is authorized and required to actually count noses every 10 years. Until the government experts started estimating how many people they missed, this was an exact count and could be verified.

On the other hand, nobody has ever proven that the BLS number crunchers are right or wrong or even in the ball park. Ever. In the history of mankind.

A thousand years ago, the spiritual grandparents of the BLS analysts were arguing about how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. Now we pay heads of pins and provide pensions so that they can measure exactly what they don't know, to 3 decimal places.

And all of the empty storefronts provide more objective evidence of the condition of employment than the number crunchers can produce. So can the unemployment numbers, and the proliferation of "Cash For Gold" places that have shown up in so many strip malls and inner-city neighborhoods.

The only ones buying the 7.8% figure are the Leftists and Obama’s Media buddies.


After 4 years of 8 plus % getting to 7.8 is like your team scoring a TD when they have just been beaten by 20+ points.

2 issues not mentioned in the 7.8 debate. We are to believe Obie wouldn't apply pressures to fudge the numbers ? (find 400K jobs somewhere, dammit)

From a guy who is bullying defense contractors to break the law about upcoming layoffs, saying he'll pay their fines if they'll just stop reminding the workers/voters they're about to lose their jobs in January ?????

Puulllleeeeaaassseee. You really do think we're stoopid.

Once again you are right in there where I go so often.I too see ozero as being influenced if not played by a communist influence although I was guessing teh Russians more than Cubans but what is the difference? Little if any.
Info is sketchy but there are small,short references to a black Manchurian played by guess who, which go back for years. And my take has always been they are true.
The Russians are famous for attacking from within,and its muzzie style as well.
So what we face in reality is a half black bi-sexual muslim with influences by black and white commies here in the US and who knows outside of the us.Financed, I believe, by mid-east money since college days.

You describe Communism perfectly. This is an idealogy meant for people with nothing going for them to ascend into a leadership role they’d never get without the lies and deceit. It’s how zeroburgers get elected president.

As for Obama’s origins, you got a good theory.

I got a better one. I have no links but this has been floating out there for a couple of weeks now.

Seems that back in the 60’s a bunch of Muslims began to filter money into the Illinois culture, all with an intent to groom angry young blacks...with prisons as just one target, into becoming Muslims, maybe starting churches that are really mosques...like say Revrund Wright.

Money poured into the corrupt Chicago political machine and folks like Valerie Jarret....she who has a very Iranian background.....got money and began to cultivate those deemed who will would be good political candidates.

Jarret’s power and taking Obama under her wing gave him a nice nothing job at college. Annenberg grants were also used to filter this money through to the community organizers.

All of the Illinois political scene was corrupted and infiltrated to a point that it was small matter to get the groomed and appointed presidential candidate in for a quick senate take, a speech at the DNC Convention...

All of the participants were in place so a George Soros was ready to throw down his bucks that he can get more oil money, Harvard became owned by the Sauds and it was small matter to squeeze a pothead Obama through that system with enough money and some affirmative action.

Jarret had enough contact with the Chicago scene that she found a good match for OBama, a half white black man who would not scare the white people across the fruited plains, who spoke without negro dialect, who would go on to have cute kids. Revrun Wright came on the scene to run Obamer and family through the black liberation theology.

Obamer his own self had been “mentored” by Frank Davis and had parents that hated America. He was properly schooled, handsome, of good speak....

Obamer’s leanings were covered vastly in the 2016 movie, of course. Left out was how he climbed through an active underground system been going on for years in this country.

You know what? I think you really nailed it right here:

0bama didn’t understand what Romney was talking about.

The Marxist has never studied anything but communism. He probably was unable to comeback, because he had no idea what Romney was talking about MOST OF THE TIME. "Economic freedom" is sort of a foreign language to him.

He certainly can't change the subject and expound upon how much he hates the American people.

Exactly and then there is this:

The unemployment rate has specific limitations. It can’t differentiate between full-time and part-time jobs. It doesn’t account for people who are underemployed, or working in jobs for which they are overqualified because they can’t find a good job. It won’t tell you how many people have become so discouraged in their job search that they have given up hope of finding a job.

More shell games.

I like your scenario. Hangs together well. I buy it all except the “handsome” part. I have never seen this quality in the one. “Disarming” maybe but not my idea of attractive or handsome. Certainly not manly. Of course I gag whenever all the fashion mags rave about how stylish and lovely Moochelle is...

Also the pre-Chicago days, which are lengthy. His buddies at Occidental (who put him up) were Pakistanis. He is photographed seated next to one, I mean right next, on a love seat. This guy (Monsoor?) hosted him on a tour of Pakistan, and who only knows where else? Set him up with lots of Muslim backers which have carried him forward. He had enough Muslim cachet to impress them, and they put up enough walkin’-aroun-money to impress him, apparently for life, and much to our detriment.

It is somewhat dismaying that fifteen or so years after the fall of the Iron curtain most Americans have totally forgotten that there were people risking their lives to escape Communist hell. My family was one, and we, due to being from an East-European communist country did go to the front of the line in the US Visa lottery.

Over the years we have had the Communist press in America (CBS, ABC, CNN, etc.) cover for Vietnam, Cambodia, Daniel Ortega (Reagan) in Nicaragua, Chavez in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, South Africa and now for the last four years here in the USA.

Some founder (Franklin?) said something about Democracy and freedom being nice if you can keep it.

Socialists, either from the Democrat party or RINOs are all after the same thing, telling everyone what to do, when to do it and how to do it. -short for Slavery.

Limited G’ment is the only answer. Anything else is a slippery road that get quickly traveled.

Kristen Powers is still a liberal Democrat.....

JMHO, her reaction this week doesn't have as much to do with Progressives, Conservatism or Christianity as with her very own finely-honed sense of self-preservation.

Put yourself in her shoes: "Been carrying this load of crap with no questions at all for eight or ten years, and the first time The Apparat hits a bump in the road, they run out and trash For-Pete's-Sake Jim LEHRER, and then John Freaking KERRY."

Okay, I'm putting words in her mouth, but if I'm any good at reading that bunch of slugs at all, Kirsten's just doing a pretty good impression of the lookouts who spotted the iceberg ahead of the Titanic....only all the lifeboats on this cruiseship are already reserved, and she's just realized that her name ain't on that list. Anywhere.

A girl's gotta take care of herself, so she's probably going to be sounding more conservative than Palin by the end of the month, just to keep ahead of the rest of the media types who are a bit slower on the uptake.

It's almost a ROFLMAO moment.

During the years of the USSR, the American media was as soft toward Communism as they are today about Obamaism. So, most Americans have no idea what the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc people actually lived through.

Right. As we reflect, the media has been on the side of communists for a long time. Loved Castro fighting the evil Batista in Cuba, loved Daniel Ortega and the Sandanistas standing up to the evil Reagan-backed Contras. Loved Che, Mao and all the other sweatshirt silk screened mass killers.

The younger generations have no idea what communism is or does. All they hear is media saying it gives folks a chance, cares for the poor and underprivileged, is “cool”...

The campaign scam is about to hit the fan.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2941478/posts?q=1&;page=51

Here’s a post from that thread:
To: Snuph
so 709,520 people donated $250 each to Zero in September.

Actually, it’s even more people than that. They reported 1.8 million donors.

35k people gave an average of $2,600, while just over 1.7 million people gave an average of $53. Half the campaign’s haul came from people giving around the maximum amount and half from people who don’t have to be disclosed.

Contributions under $200 don’t have to be disclosed, but the campaign still has to keep track of the donor’s name, in case subsequent donations push their contribution over the reporting threshold.

For contributions under $50, however, the campaign doesn’t even have to keep track of the donor’s name. It is effectively considered a “petty cash” donation. A person could theoretically make 10 $49 donations and never be reported, even though their total contributions are above the FEC’s reporting threshold.

With an average donation of $53 from small donors, Obama has A LOT of donors who will never be disclosed and whose names aren’t even known to the campaign.

Most of that info from here: Windfall: Obama Raises $181 Million, Only Around 2% of Donations Reportable.

But, one thing to keep in mind: The Obama campaign has turned off name and address verification. You can put any name or address you want on the online form. As long as it is a valid credit card number, it will go through.

This opens the door for several forms of election fraud:

You can make multiple donations, with different names.
You can make multiple donations with a pre-loaded debit card, after buying them at Wal-Mart or any grocery store with another credit card or cash.
You can make donations from a foreign account.

I suspect that some of these issues are what will be hitting the news in the next 24 hours. The question is whether the Kneepad Media will cover it. If not, Ryan and Romney should figure out a way to insert it into the debate. That will get it past the Kneepad Media’s filter.

You are exactly right. Hillary is right in the middle of this debacle. I can recall at the time when she was speaking at Andrews AFB on the arrival of the four caskets from Libya that she was really agitated and angry. She was surprised that this could happen to someone who helped "liberate" Libya.

She seemed personally invested to a degree I had not seen before. And she strongly made the connection between the video and what happened in Libya and elsewhere in the ME. She also warmly introduced Obama--her partner in crime. I have no doubt that Hillary and Obama concocted the video explanation story. And now they are both hiding behind the investigation meme to tamp down the reaction to the story in much the same way that Obama used the investigation into the Ft Hood shooting. The public has a very short attention span as does the MSM except when it comes to attacks against Reps, e.g., the 47% Romney tape.

I have no doubt that Hillary has future political ambitions to be President. She will make any deal and do anything to keep her ambitions alive--unlike the lives of the Ambassador and his colleagues. Hillary is involved in the Libya cover-up up to her eyeballs.

Re Fast and Furious: It wouldn't surprise me that Hillary had some involvement in the scandal, at least in the cover-up. I can remember her exploitation of the issue of US guns going to Mexico to fuel the violence long before we knew of the existence of Fast and Furious. She was trying to exploit the violence in Mexico to support more gun laws in the US restricting their sale.

Wow blockbuster post kabar! During the FNC feed they commented that it was unbelievable that they would cut security after at least 13 security incidents in the area.You gotta wonder what is going on who ordered the security cuts and why?

I know its a bit of a stretch to think that bubba did the convention to keep Hillary from being a fall guy,thrown under the obama bus, but I guess stranger things have happened.

Neither the Chicago mobsters nor the Clinton mob have any regard for life. They are both so narcissistic it never occurs to them.

Looks like its all going happen right before our eyes and soon.

Great report and here's a photo to back up the size of the crowds you mentioned. Unbelievable and quite encouraging.
