Obama Walkout Linked To Debt Panic Ploy?

Obama: “This may bring my presidency down but I will not yield on this”

President Obama’s dramatic decision to walk out of debt talks with Republican leaders yesterday all but confirms Senator DeMint’s claim that the White House is deliberately stalling until the last minute as a ploy to push through a deal on its own terms, relying on stirring panic in a similar vein to how the 2008 bailout was passed on the back of bellicose threats of martial law and economic catastrophe.

Obama abruptly ended a tense budget meeting with Republican leaders by walking out of the room, a Republican aide familiar with the talks said,” according to Reuters.

Obama also reportedly stated, “This may bring my presidency down but I will not yield on this,” a petulant threat that characterizes how the White House has repeatedly resorted to financial terrorism in a bid to scare lawmakers into submission.

Obama, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner have consistently claimed that failure to reach an agreement on raising the debt ceiling would be catastrophic and almost certainly lead to the US defaulting. Republican lawmakers like DeMint, Michele Bachman and Speaker of the House Boehner insist that this is not the case. Yesterday, Bachman said the inevitability of a default was “simply not true.”

The President’s apparent effort to blackmail America into acquiescing to his administration’s agenda prompted Republican Senator Jim DeMint to accuse Obama of “burning the clock” and deliberately fanning the flames of panic to push a deal right down to the wire.

Obama intensified his warning of an economic fallout earlier this week when he told CBS News he could not guarantee that social security checks and other benefits would be paid on August 3. “There may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” the President stated.

“That would then entail a kind of ‘Sophie’s Choice’ situation, where you have to decide what bills you can pay,” Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, subsequently stated. “And the fact is, you know, whether it’s Social Security checks or veterans’ benefits or disability benefits, it’s pretty clear that the effect will be significant.”

Florida Senator Marco Rubio lambasted Obama for the provocation, accusing the President of threatening to hold up checks merely “to make his point”.

Former Florida House Majority Leader Adam Hasne also chimed in, labeling Obama’s tactics “shameful” and “a new low for Washington”.

In pursuing such tactics, the Obama administration is mimicking how former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson was able to intimidate Congress into voting for the 2008 bailout by fabricating lurid scenarios about economic catastrophe and martial law.

In an effort to stampede lawmakers into voting for the bailout bill, Paulson threatened lawmakers with “martial law in America” if the legislation failed to pass.

Senator James Inhofe later confirmed that Paulson told members of Congress the crisis would be “far worse than the great depression” if Congress didn’t authorize the bill to buy out toxic debt, a proposal “which he abandoned the day after he got the money,” added Inhofe, referring to how immediately after it was approved, Paulson announced that the bailout money would not be used to buy up toxic debt but would instead be injected directly into banks like Goldman Sachs, of which he was a former CEO.

Polls have consistently shown that a majority of Americans oppose hiking the debt ceiling. The biggest owners of US debt are the Federal Reserve and China, along with a host of private investors.

Obama’s walkout dovetailed with ratings agency Moody’s announcement that the US could lose its top credit rating if a deal is not reached in the coming weeks. However, a report out of China Daily suggests that the US credit rating would be downgraded even if the debt ceiling is hiked.

“The US’ sovereign credit rating is likely to be downgraded regardless of whether the US Congress reaches an agreement on raising its statutory debt limit,” states the report, with the Dagong credit rating agency’s CEO Guan Jianzhong adding that a US downgrade is merely “a matter of time and extent”.

Emergent Asset Management’s David Murrin also told CNBC yesterday that a US default was “inevitable,” calling the US “an empire which is overextended and in decline”.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
