"Politician" = Liar: Whitehouse lies about Obama bowing to Saudi king - Why?

A brief amusing digression from the subjects at hand (fluctuating mediums of exchange, usury, and legal tender laws): One poster on an internet talk string referred to Obama as Yorick1. I thought it was hilarious. At left is a painting (click on it to enlarge) of the gravedigger in Shakespeare's Hamlet holding up Yorick's (aka "Obama's") empty skull.

Check out the Politico story titled, "White House: No bow to Saudi". It's not a big story other than that it constitutes absolute proof of the lying scumness2 of politicians3.

First look at the video for yourself, then check out what some of the Politico posters said. The video is in a foreign language (Spanish?), but Obama's bow to the Saudi king takes place at about 54 seconds into the video. Notice that, contrary to Whitehouse lies, Obama doesn't raise his second (left) hand until after the bow and he has straightened up.

According to Politico, "The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets. It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity."

It seems that more than a few posters disagree:

"Oh what a LIE! It is easy to see that Obama extends only one hand while bowing, and only reaches out with the second hand as he is rising from the bow. Look close and you can see his left hand in front of his left leg as he bows, and shakes with his right hand. What liars!"

"What really bothers me a whole lot is the total worship the media has for this guy. What exactly did Obama and Mitchell do to earn this level of worship by the democrats and the media? Can anybody answer this question?Im stumped.Don't tell me it was his speeches from teleprompter."

"It is interesting that the press ran the clip non-stop of Bush touching Merkel's shoulders, which I agree was poor judgment. But the complete lack of coverage for Obama BOWING to a muslim king is complete hypocrisy - The press is dead - thank goodness for YouTube. I hope all the big press outlets go-under and they all spend their days waiting in the food-stamp lines, which will be a very long line, considering Obama's business acumen."

"Why would they lie? Are they idiots? Or, do they think we the people are idiots? Shame. Shame. Shame."

"Mr. Obama only continues to disappoint me. Here we are barely 3 months into his presidency and he bows to this muslim leader. Why did he shake hands with everyone else. I think I might be sick. I can't handle another 3 yrs 9 months of this outrage."

"The BOW!! How can the WH spin office think we are all so gullible as to buy their canard that POTUS was simply bending to make it easier for the shorter King of Saudia Arabia to shake hands! When BO met the Queen he did not give the protocol prescribed nod from the neck. The Queen is MUCH shorter than the King of Saudia Arabia. The arrogance displayed toward the Queen and the subservience to the King of Saudia Arabia shows that America?s Foreign Policy is in the hands of a dangerous oaf."

"Alas, poor Yorick. Obama is an empty skull. He bowed and continues to lie like Pinocchio because he is a liar and a dumb rookie President who doesn't know how to be a global leader. Hollow words from his hollow head followed by hollow actions of an Islamic wanna-be."

"It is extremely troubling that our government can get away with such blatant lies. In just a few months Obama and his team has made us weaker in the eyes of the world. It is truly embarrassing to see our president kiss up to those who would love to see our great country wiped off the face of the earth. What an incredibly naive administration! The pendulum has swung far left and got stuck. We need to help it swing back to the center with the power of our VOTES!!"

Government Deception, by Walter E. Williams - TownHall.com - "Mike Whalen, former policy chairman of the Dallas-based National Center for Policy Analysis, commenting on last year's Social Security Trustees annual report on the state of the Social Security and Medicare programs, said, "The report on the state of entitlement programs is rather grim -- the combined unfunded liabilities of both programs are $101 trillion." What that means is that in order for government to make good on its promises, Congress would have to put aside tens of trillions of dollars in the bank today. Keep in mind that our GDP is only $14 trillion." - The bad news that all the "government4" control-freak liars and demonizers won't tell you is that the Social Security Ponzi scheme is a simple arithmetic formula with only three possible factors: 1) radically increase retirement age, 2) radically reduce benefits, and/or 3) radically increase taxes. - JRW

Feds join Twitter revolution - NetworkWorld.com - "From NASA to the General Services Administration, more federal agencies are embracing Twitter as another Web-based channel to communicate news and engage in conversations with U.S. citizens." "'All of this Web-based technology will really have an enormous impact on this administration and the speed and velocity of getting information out to constituents,' says Adelaide O'Brien, research manager at IDC's Government Insights. 'The use of Web 2.0 tools…can accelerate the movement of government to share information. We think its' time has come.'"

As long as we're holding Obama up to the light, check out this video of Alan Keyes talking about Obama. Unfortunately the American sheeple are collectively too stupid to elect Keyes over Obama for senator or president.

FOOTNOTES:

1."Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?" (Hamlet, V.i)

2. Regarding the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals: Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads work. And since the so-called "left" uses lies, half-truths, demonization and the politics of personal destruction as standard political strategies, failure to engage in a little "turn about is fair play" merely makes it easier for the various assortments of disordered illiterate fascist control freaks to destroy individual freedom. As I said on my blog homepage, "Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential." To avoid the violence which is directly related to repression of free speech and the crushing of polite and civil discourse, I believe it is essential to engage in strategic tit-for-tat with wannabe-clever manipulative demonizers by openly calling them what they are: the anti-freedom, anti-Golden-Rule scum of the earth (aka "scumbags"). Accordingly, it doesn't bother me in the least to do so. No less brilliant a person than Jesus of Nazareth himself referred to the scumbags of his day as "hypocrites", "blind guides", "vipers" and "whitewashed sepulchres". To paraphrase Ann Coulter, Jesus was not some moron driving around in a Volvo with a "be nice to people" bumper sticker on it. So having read The Art of Political War and Other Radical Pursuits by David Horowitz I don't have any problem with calling "scum" what it is.

3. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver, and why "political" = deception-based, or having to do with deception. Everybody is competing for political power to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical impossibility, most of their promises of necessity get broken. Because they know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and a deadly enemy to individual freedom.

4. The harsh reality is that there is no such real thing as government. Government is merely the dominant individuals in the inherently evil and inevitably corrupting stupid-human pecking order who call themselves "government" and pretend to be "serving" their followers while robbing them blind under the "forms of law and calling it taxation".
