Barack Obama, Operation Hot Mic

Watching the United States and the political theater from afar is quite instructive. For starters, you quickly realize how much bullshit and fluff dominate the U.S. airwaves. Consider, for example, the bullshit, bogus story that Mitt Romney is a gay bully. The foreign coverage of this is correctly puzzled by the fact that a story without substance and corroboration is even being reported. There is not one shred of evidence that Mitt Romney has bullied anyone in his adult life. Yet, despite the lack of contemporaneous eyewitness, the Washington Post is trying to pretend that Romney acted like Lee Harvey Oswald and was guilty of killing a beloved leader. What utter bullshit!

What we really ought to focus on is why Obama is ready to sell out the United States to Russia.

Obama has no moral or ethical core.

He is all about self-indulgence and self-worship. While this piece was crafted tongue-in-cheek, it contains an important kernel of truth. Obama is not about preserving or protecting America. He is ready and willing, once he can stretch out and get his flexibility back, he’ll sell out our country. That’s the meaning of this video.

    NOBAMA = TOTAL FAILURE! And to think, he was given a Nobel Peace
    Prize, for Nothing! Even Nobama and his Handlers know the Game is OVER!
    Nobama is History! Nobama is Going to lose ALL 57 States! Yes Nobama

    Mr. Johnson you should ask Europeans what they think of Obama.

    If Obama had lead a pose of bullies to hunt down and hold down a younger student and shave his head because he thought the student was gay, you and your website would be all over it with many many comments and stories. NoQuarter has reported on plenty of bogus stories.

    Selling out America to Russia? Such drama! Such a “bogus” comment.

    • Anthony_1

      Obama is not President of Europe.  He is POTUS, where he’ll find it hard to win re-election.  That’s what the American people think of him.

      As far as bogus comments, just exactly how long have you been calling kettles black?

       Romney left Bain 1999, GST Steel went belly up in 2001 – so how is that Romney’s fault? Or is it a case of once more facts don’t matter to dems.

      • Anthony_1

        Its always Romney’s fault, remember?  Mitt Romney is somehow at the source of almost any unsavory happening that has ever occurred.

        • elizabethrc

          You mean that Romney is taking Bush’s ‘honored spot’ as the one to be blamed for everything by the Dems?
          Who’d thought?!

          • Anthony_1

            I think its more of a “share” at this point.  There’s still a few more good sound bytes left in the “Its Bush’s fault!” barrel 

            As far as I can tell, the Obama handlers’ strategy is “evolving” more and more, and soon the baton will be fully passed to Mitt (most likely by June)

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Hank-DeCat/100001190387982 Hank DeCat

           And it’s never Obama’s fault — don’t forget that part. Obama isn’t responsible for anything bad during his last 4 years in office, but Romney is responsible for GST even though he hadn’t been at Bain for the 2 years prior to it’s going bankrupt. Obot logic.

          • Anthony_1

            I heard Romney was also responsible for the crash of ’29, the Holocaust and the entire Brittney Spears phenomenon.  

            Oh, I almost forgot – the ice age, too.

            Obama is simply the innocent inheritor of all that is evil, and it is only by evolving his ass off that anything will ever become whole again.

        Not only wasn’t Romney at Bain, but Jonathan Levine a top Obama bundler was in charge then. I bet Axelgrease didn’t bother doing any sue diligence.

        Thank you Newt Gingirich for the Obama ammo.

        We went through this before. Bain tried to save GST Steel. The american steel market was losing out to lower priced competitors elsewhere. Remember U.S. Steel? They are still around but they make their money from energy – not steel.

        • jrterrier

          oh, and by the way, all the 27 steel mills that went belly up during that period — due in large part to dumping of cheap steel by foreign countries — were union shops.  the ones that survived, were non-union shops.

      What would really be interesting, Popsmoke, is if Obama decided to run on his record and accomplishments as POTUS.

  • DianaLC

    The state of journalism in the U.S. is indeed a very sad state.  You wrote this:  “The foreign coverage of this is correctly puzzled by the fact that a story without substance and corroboration is even being reported.”  This morning our only major paper features a little survey about this supposed incident, under the assumption that it is indeed important news.” 

    I am writing to them to give a piece of my mind, not that they seem to want people with real minds reading their rag.

    And, the thing about O’s open-mic gaffe is that he states so calmly that he will be elected.  Scares the bejeezus out of me to think that, as during the last presidential primary, the fix is in.

    • FLDemFem

       It is probably just his narcissism that made that statement. He can’t conceive of an election he doesn’t win. It hasn’t happened to him since Bobby Rush handed him his head back in the 90′s. Now Rush is on his side. So why worry? It would not occur to him that people would vote against him because his policies suck.

      • DianaLC

        I hope you’re right.

  • KenoshaMarge

    That “open mic” bit needs to be played as often as possible. Anywhere that’s possible. In a campaign ad that is then funded to be played again and again. We know the LSM won’t play it or report on it if they can avoid it. Something so fundamentally important is virtually ignore by corrupt entities like the WaPo while they make a major story about something a teenager did 50 years ago.

    No wonder the Post is losing money. Losing credibility might have something to do with that.

       GREAT  CARTOON!!!

  • Retired_from_SPOnaj

    And in other news:  It has now been revealed that George Zimmerman, the “white hispanic” under indictment for the killing of Trayvon Martin, is actually “blacker” than Barack Obama.  Zimmerman is 12.5% black on his Afro-Pervuvian mother’s side, while Mr. Obama is 6.25% black on his Afro-Arab father’s side.

    It will be interesting to see how the race pimps handle the evil Zimmerman being more black than the savior Obama.

    • KenoshaMarge

      That’s easy Retired, it simply won’t be reported in the lamestream media.

      The same media that designated Zimmerman as a “white” Hispanic in order to ramp up the racial unrest.

    • Flop_Flipper

      Love this photo of the white guy.

    • DianaLC

      That’s easy—O will come out to amend his first comment on the case.  Rather than claiming that if he had a boy the boy would look like Trayvon, he’ll say that if he had a boy he would have a name like Trayvon (but, God forbid, never George).

      • Retired_from_SPOnaj

        Never use the word “boy,” it’s racist (unless applied to a white boy, like Tarzan’s son).  To be politically correct, you have to say “young man.”

        • DianaLC

          I stand corrected.

        • lola828

          no one will ever claim that you are politically correct given your views on race and women.

          • Retired_from_SPOnaj

            Ad hominem attacks do not add to the discussion, however, if that’s all that one has to offer, quod erat demostratum.

    • lola828

      Not sure what the ethnic make up of Zimmerman has to do with anything. He clearly was using racial profiling and shot and killed someone because he thought they were suspicious, which given his previous statements on race, was clearly driven by his racist views.

      • Retired_from_SPOnaj

        Is there such a thing as justifiable racism?  For instance, if a black man targets a white man for some action largely because of the white man’s race, is that justifiable racism?

        Or, alternatively, if a black man targets another black man for some action largely because of the black man’s race, is that justifiable racism?

        If a black man makes any type of selection, is that truly racism, or is it only racism if a white man makes such a selection? What about men other than black and white, say, Hispanic or Asian?

        If so, why?

      • APO_AE_09173

        Zimmerman saw and individual who was behaving suspiciously. HE ended up in a wrestling match and shot the young man after Zimmerman had been injured. There are independently verified photos of Zimmerman’s bleeding head.

        This is tragic for Zimmerman and the Martin family.

        But I have to say–were it my son who was at the time suspended from school for cause (pot residue in is backpack) He wouldn’t be walking around to 7-11.

        It has nothing to do with race.

      • beachnan

  • alicewolf

    If we all know this and understand that Romney is not pulling out all the stops to make everyone aware of the unconstitutionality of many of the Obama Administration’s deeds, then tongue in cheek becomes
    our indictment.    There several young men and women running for Congress under the la Rouche banner, who have a program that would get the USA on the road to recovery.   This last Saturday Rep. Jones was interviewed on the La Rouche Show put out by E.I.R.  The Executive Intelligence Review, who was asking for help getting his Resolution 107 through…………………….. He was very clear in his remarks, and anyone interested in preserving our wonderful republic should take take time out of their busy schedule and at least give this gentleman a chance to get some assistance in his effort to stop us hurtling into yet another war, without first obtaining a Declaration of War from Congress as per the mandate of the US Constitution which seems to have found it’s way into the garbage can.

    • FLDemFem

       LaRouche? That would be Lyndon LaRouche, the convicted felon? The guy who had a paramilitary project going near Leesburg, Va in the 80′s? My grandmother’s farm was nearby and we used to hear the ratta-tat-tat of machine gun fire regularly. The whack job who thinks everything is a conspiracy to bring down America, including rock music? That LaRouche?? You must be joking. If not, you are a fool.

      • alicewolf

        Goodness, you really don’t like Mr la Rouche do you. Oh well…………………………….. it’s a free country and we are all allowed to have opinions on people and things don’t we, and obviously it’s possible for at least me, for one, to make a mistake. I will most certainly check out what you say. Thanks for taking the time to give me your perspective. Peace out.

  • Retired_from_SPOnaj

    May we have an Obama supporter explain what our President can’t tell the American people now, but that he will be more flexible on with the Russians after the election?  I can tell you from personal, first hand experience that the Obama-Medvedev hot mic conversation is exactly how traitors sound when they are selling out their country.  If the FBI had such a video on a lesser U.S. citizen, he would be in jail while the Justice Department was building a case against him.

    • lola828

      “traitors sound when they are selling out their country”

      You are the one making the accusations, so you are the one needing to explain yourself.

      Not sure why stating the obvious is a problem. Clearly there is more flexibility to talk to the Russians on nuclear issues after the U.S. election is decided. There is nothing that is going to get done or decided in the heat of a  U.S. election no matter who is President.

      Hard to believe you guys were actually assigned to protect this country. Did they teach you to read that much BS into a 15 second clip on something you have no context on?

      • Retired_from_SPOnaj

        1.  Ad hominem attacks do not distract me from the issue at hand, which is what Mr. Obama’s intended actions are are and why he cannot freely and honestly disclose them before the election.

        2.  Mr. Obama, the President of the United States, needs to explain what his intended actions are before the election so that the American people can decide whether or not we agree with those intended actions and thus whether or not we intend to vote for him.  That’s what elections are all about in a free and open society.  Didn’t Mr. Obama promise to be free and open with us, his fellow citizens?  Or is that just a promise that he made without intending to keep it?

        3.  I say again, when I recruited spies who were betraying their countries, they sounded like Mr. Obama’s “15 second clip” when we finished the conversation.  It only takes a few seconds to betray one’s country.

        In short, it is Mr. Obama who needs to expain himself to the American people, not the other way around.

  • Hokma

    The Romney high school story was a plant and obviously timed to coincide with Obama’s gay marriage declaration which was obviously timed to collect money from Hollywood.

    The intent was to blunt the impact of Obama’s commitment to gay marriage.

    But a few things went wrong:

    1. The content of the story began to fall apart when one of the witnesses only heard about it a few weeks ago and the supposed victim’s family came out against the story and its characterization.

    2. No one ended up caring about Romney’s high school years except the Obama shills.

    3. The gay marriage issue will hurt Obama significantly in the swing states.

    Last night, I watched an episode of MI-5. The British, we find out, have decided to shore up their relationships with the Middle East via Russia, not the U.S.  The Brits spirit a top Russian official and his wife into London secretly with the intention of cementing their new path into the Middle East with the Russians.  As one Brit points out, the M.E. is only a three-hour air ride from the U.K., not so for the U.S.  

    Of course, MI-5′s plot complicates things.  The top Russian official’s wife was turned by a then-MI6 agent and a CIA operative.  With one major difference.  The then-MI6 agent was the lover of the wife.  There are yet more complications.

    Btw, this aired about 3-4 weeks ago. I’m just getting caught up on MI5 episodes.

    • nickoury

      Really great series.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        LARRY and everyone else:  THANK YOU for not linking to the Washington Post’s tripe.

        I heard that it takes 11 — eleven — pages to print in full.

        We can boycott that D.C. rag.  Besides, its competitors are just fine + there are publications like The Hill that pride themselves on balanced reporting about substantive topics.

        Red Eye might introduce a new character to appear alongside the “Grey Lady” puppet.

        P.S. Please d0n’t think less of me – oh hell, do so if you want — but I love the new D.C. TV series, “Scandal,” on ABC Thursday nights, right after Greys Anatomy, and exec-produced by the same VERY bright black woman.

        Scandal’s president lies to everybody. He and his chief of staff lie to each other, often. The biggest mystery is why any of the women love and want to have sex with him. He’s no McDreamy and he’s sure as hell no McSteamy.  He exudes weakness and indecision and plays at being ruthless but it’s not convincing. 

        Perhaps it was a casting error. He’s no Jeff Bridges or Michael Douglas or Dennis Haysbert (in “24″).

        Luckily, the chief of staff has the acting chops.

        It’s been renewed for a second season. I guess I’m not the only one who loves trashy TV sometimes. It beats a trashy newspaper that’s also boring and has no sex in it.

        • elizabethrc

          I don’t think a boycott is necessary since, by all accounts, they are in danger of folding due to a huge drop in readership.  They are shooting themselves in the foot not with a pistol, but with a semi-automatic.
          I am counting on the resilience that is part of the American psyche to make us rebound after Obama is gone.  He’s lead a Congress and a government which has been actively dumbing down our values, our expectations, our morals and I am counting on the people to express their will to reverse this in November.
          Fresh air is coming!

    • BronwynsHarbor

       Just my two cents: (Caveat: I’m no lip reader.) I watched the numerous repeated words and don’t see how a lip reader can 100% verify that that is what she said.  (I was also appalled by the collection of similar videos aligned with this one — including one about Michelle that, at the end, asks how we can trust Obama to be president if he “can’t control his own wife.” Ugh. The next video was about Hillary but, given the very unflattering image, I had a strong hunch that it’d be negative and elected not to give it a +1 view.)

      • FormerLiberal9

        My bad. I didn’t check out the other videos I was in a hurry.

        • BronwynsHarbor

          That in no way calls on you to apologize. What’s probably truest is that the lip reader has sufficient experience reading Michelle’s lips that she was correct.  The other videos — heck, nobody can control how those get added on (best I know).

    • bbf

       I looked at the link..and have no doubt that what she said was exactly what the YouTube poster claimed.  It was so obvious..even at the normal speed…that she said what the lip reader reported.

    I have to laugh. During the late 60s and 70′s when we actually had race riots. I had a friend (Bob)  who was a 1st degree black belt and we both had the same Sensi. Well one evening a group of us  got into it with a group of our black brothers. Bob knocked down one of the opposition and then took a trash can placed it over the head of the guy, pick him up and began to round house kick the can until the guy just did not get up…. Luckily he did not kill him or seriously hurt him. Major head ache though.

    Today ole Bob is a ……………S t a t e….P r o s e c u t o r………..

      Great story.  Was the guys name Oscar?

    • elizabethrc

      I’m not so sure that Obama has or ever will grow up.  He operates at a juvenile emotional level. 
      As to how we all did stupid things in high school aspect of the Romney situation, I know that a dress code is considered important (probably too much so) in many private schools and is taken as a personal affront by most students who follow that code.  I’m not as willing as the media to ascribe the hair cutting episode as gay bashing (which may have been the case) but question whether it might have been the result of a more typical youthful righteous indignation against the young person for thumbing his nose at the code. 
      Bottom line:  I don’t know and neither does the WaPo.

      • Popsmoke

        Obama is all grown up just as you and I. He believes in his convictions as you and I do in our own.  I do not hold that against him. Better criticized for ones convictions rather than have none at all.

        However, the high school crap? Please…. Shit when my senior class graduated the principle threw a party….

        We were pretty bad and it was a rather interesting time in history. If the kids pulled today what we pull back then. They would all be in jail.

        Hell one of the seniors to me when I was a freshman chased the principle up the school stairs one day…….using his car…..

        30 years later? That same senior? Wealthy businessman and mayor of the town…..

        Another story… Remember Woodstock? Cousin got arrested for burning down one of the out houses at the concert. Today? He is an astrophysicist…. 

        Like I said, we all grow up….. Just youthful indiscretions or should I say… stupidity….

        Even the Saints were not all saints when they were youthful…..

        • elizabethrc

          Obama manifests the outward appearance of an adult, but his reactions and treatment of criticism are decidedly immature.

        Narcissists rarely outgrow narcissism.  They are indeed stuck in the toddler egocentric mode of thinking.  (Don’t get that word “egocentric” mixed up with “egotistic.”  It’s an important difference.)

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Hank-DeCat/100001190387982 Hank DeCat

    You mean the foreign press recognizes that a single bad act (if true, which I don’t concede as I have expressed in a previous thread because of serious flaws, many of which have been exposed) by an adolescent is not a “pattern of behavior” nor can it can be extrapolated to tell you about a person’s character 47 years later? You mean they recognize the social & scientific evidence that proves that a person’s brain isn’t fully developed until their mid-20s, which is the reason juveniles are not treated as adults under the law? You mean they recognize that adolescents are moody, irrational, impulsive, overly dramatic, overly emotional and don’t consider long-term consequences of their actions because, literally, their brains are still developing? You mean they realize the universal truth that any adult who can swear that s/he is proud of every choice they made in high school is a liar?

    Well, they are certainly smarter than anyone at the Washington Post, the MSM (in general) and the Obama supporters.

    In 1972 the Washington Post took down all the president’s men.
    In 2012 the Washington Post are the president’s men.
    If the Washington Post can evolve so drastically in 40 years, so can Romney.

    PS — I have expressed some of the facts above about the development of the human brain in a previous thread, but I wanted to repeat them in advance of the trolls.

  • Propertius

    The foreign coverage of this is correctly puzzled by the fact that a
    story without substance and corroboration is even being reported.

    I think your use of the term “reported” is excessively charitable. It seems to me that nearly all “journalistic” outlets these days, whether they’re considered Left or Right, have basically adopted the standards of Hollywood gossip columnists. There was a time when, if you read something in the Times or the Washington Post, you could trust that it had been fact-checked and corroborated. That just isn’t the case anymore. Everyone seems to be trying to beat Murdoch in a race to the bottom.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Hank-DeCat/100001190387982 Hank DeCat

       Totally right. It was much closer to to pro-Obama fanfic than reporting. I saw a draft of Jason D. Horowitz’s next piece for WaPo;  it starts: “It was a dark and stormy night.”

        What is the name of the contest that rewards the worst fiction, and uses “It was a dark and stormy night” as its major example?

           It’s the Bulwer-Lytton contestrize, named for Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, who is mainly known for having written The Last Days of Pompeii and for coining the phrase “the pen is mightier than the sword”. He also wrote the novel Paul Clifford which begins with the (infamous) sentence:

          t was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at
          occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind
          which swept up the streets (for it is in London
          that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely
          agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the
          darkness.

            Do they give a Pulitzer for run on sentences?

      I agree that the term “reported” is excessively charitable. As is the term “reporter”. With a few exceptions, too damn few, we no longer have “reporters” we no longer have “journalists” and we no longer have a press we can trust.

      The job of the media, at least the one I remember learning many years ago is:

      To comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable. ~Finley Peter Dunne

      Instead we have press agents for one side or the other. Mostly for the left. Truth? They neither share nor care.
