Wall Street Puppet Obama Sympathizes With Anti Wall Street Protests 332936140 06091506

During a press conference this morning, the president said he sympathized with Occupy Wall Street protesters – words that are already ringing entirely hollow for those engaged with the movement, given that Obama’s top campaign contributors include four of Wall Street’s biggest investment banks.

“The American people understand that not everybody is following the rules. Wall Street is an example of that,” Obama told journalists gathered at the White House.

“These days a lot of folks doing the right thing aren’t rewarded, and a lot of folks not doing the right thing are rewarded,” the president added.

“I think people are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad frustration about how our financial system works,” Obama went on to say.

When asked why he had not done more to prosecute Wall Street crooks, the president suggested that, although highly immoral practices had occurred, no illegal activity had taken place.

“Part of people’s frustration, part of my frustration, is that a lot of practices going on weren’t against the law,” he said.

Realists, however, may be more inclined to believe the inaction stems from the fact that the Obama administration is chock full of former Wall Street executives.

Obama has even added new Wall Streeters who did not work for him in 2008, including former Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine, Evercore Partners executive Charles Myers, Greenstreet Real Estate Partners CEO Steven Green, and Azita Raji, a former investment banker for JP Morgan,” according to a study by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Indeed, Obama’s 2012 campaign is reliant on Wall Street to an even greater extent than his 2008 campaign which was almost exclusively bankrolled by Wall Street firms. including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citi Group and JP Morgan Chase.

During today’s press conference, Obama also defended bailouts of the big banks, claiming that the economy would have been even worse if no action had been taken.

In comments sure to cause more concern for free market advocates, Obama added that the government would fight “every step of the way” to ensure there is a consumer watchdog to ensure that the financial sector is regulated.

In separate comments, Vice President Joe Biden stated today that he understood the “frustration” of protesters.

The Occupy Wall Street response on the official forum has been that Obama’s words represent “more of the same”, with many contributors seeing through the rhetoric.

However, the presence of the Obama front group has amplified on the OWS forum, where last week it was nowhere to be seen. This indicates a coordinated attempt to co-opt the legitimate protest movement and inject White House talking points.

One poster notes: “Now that, Obama and Biden have all come out in support of OWS, we now know that it was never anything more than just an Obama reelection rally. Somehow, OWS keeps thinking it is “outside” the system when it is in the very center of the system.”

Obama is clearly attempting to shift the American people’s frustration onto banks, hoping that people won’t come to the realization that his entire campaign is funded by these very same financial institutions.

He has ludicrously adopted the gimmick of appearing as the populist who sides with the American people, when in reality he is in completely in bed with Wall Street.

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.


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?
