  • Dear Leader bolsters Russian Economy, recommends stocks

    06/27/2014 8:37:21 PM PDT · by wetphoenix · 5 replies
    Obama and Russia: the World Laughs Dear Leader (PBUH) has provided his contrarian investment dog whistles that have boosted the Russian economy. Specific stocks he targeted for "sanctions" have performed magnificently. White House sock puppet press secretary Jay Carney warned that it was not a good time to invest in the Russian stock market because Obama was planning to impose devastating economic sanctions that would send the market into a tailspin. What actually happened, the FT says, is that the Russian market rose from 1,250 on the RTS Exchange to 1,450 -- a gain of over 15%. In fact, if...

    ‘Already worse than Carney’: Obama spokesman’s scapegoat for influx of young illegals drops jaws Unaccompanied young people have been flooding across the border and crowding temporary shelters in the U.S. Is the reason this has been happening due to lax border security combined with an expectation the U.S. government might soon grant blanket amnesty to people in the country illegally?According to Josh Earnest, who is replacing Jay Carney as White House press secretary, the blame is elsewhere: Earnest: "deliberate misinformation campaign" by syndicates in Latin America leading children to believe if they arrive in US they can stay— Jim Acosta...

    White House press secretary Jay Carney says he never lied to the press corps during his three and a half years as the top presidential spokesman. “Honestly, it's not because I’m a paragon of virtue, it’s because that would be a terrible way to do the job,” Carney told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. The press secretary admitted that he sometimes could not or did not want to answer questions posed by reporters. “What you do when you can’t say is you don’t,” Carney said. “You take the question or you explain what you can.” Carney will leave...

    On June 21, 2013, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney unequivocally assured reporters at that day's White House Press Briefing that President Obama “would not make any decisions about transfer of any detainees without consulting Congress and without doing so in accordance with U.S. law." Appearing on Sunday's edition of NBC's Meet the Press, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel claimed that President Obama's weekend decision to do precisely what his official spokesman promised the country he would never do was based upon the need for secrecy and that informing Congress of the highly contentious prisoner exchange would risk scuttling it.

Bowe Bergdahl. "Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Berghdal's release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans," said Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Rep. Buck McKeon (R-Calif.), the Senate Armed Services ranking member and House Armed Services chairman, respectively, in a joint statement.

    On Thursday, the day before a double resignation at the White House, ABC's Jon Karl grilled Jay Carney over Barack Obama's confidence in Eric Shinseki. Less than 24 hours later, the press secretary and Veterans Administration head had both quit. During the back-and-forth, Karl pressed, "But does the President right now have confidence in Sec. Shinseki, yes or no? It's a very simple yes or no question. You told us last week he did have confidence, does he have confidence now?" [See video below.] Carney dodged and responded, "Jon, the President addressed this question from the podium." The journalist pointed...

The spat began when ABC’s Jonathan Karl began questioning Carney about VA Secretary Eric Shinseki. “If this mess regarding wait times isn’t cleaned up soon, are General Shinseki’s days numbered as VA secretary?” Karl asked Carney. Carney pivoted to stress the president’s support for the VA before responding, “What the president wants is for the review and...

Jay Carney on Monday. While the president may have not been aware of the falsified wait lists, however, reports indicate that his administration was informed of excessive wait times at the VA as early as 2008. Obama even campaigned on the issue of VA waiting lists in 2007. “When was the president first made aware of these problems?” CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked. “These fraudulent

    For the Obama White House, tweets from reporters are a kind of early warning system. It’s up to Jessica Allen, 24, to sound the alarm. Allen, whose official title is “media monitor,” tracks journalists’ tweets and flags them in mass emails that land in the in-boxes of more than 80 Obama aides, including chief of staff Denis McDonough, White House counsel Kathy Ruemmler, press secretary Jay Carney and senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer. The result? Reporters who regularly cover Obama have become familiar with seemingly out-of-the-blue emails or telephone calls from officials taking issue with their tweets — often thoughtfully and...

Nevada's biggest Obama fan Jon Ralston was even offended to find out how contrived it is. Now for the cover-up. The video has been blacked out on YouTube. Both Carney and the reporter are denying what she said on air....
