10 Very Strange Things That Have Happened In Just The Past Few Weeks

By Michael Snyder

Have you noticed that events have begun to accelerate? Over the past few weeks, things have officially started to get very weird. Chinese stocks are crashing, the Greek debt crisis is spiraling out of control, the New York Stock Exchange was down for about four hours on Wednesday thanks to a “technical glitch”, and global politicians have been acting very strangely.

After several years of relative calm, could it be possible that the second half of 2015 will usher in a time of chaos and confusion on a worldwide scale? Personally, I have never been more concerned about a period of time as I am about the last six months of 2015. And if I am right, what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. The following are 10 very strange things that have happened in just the past few weeks…

#1 On Wednesday, the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal were all taken down by unexpected “technical glitches“. Authorities are assuring us that hackers were not responsible for any of this.

#2 In China, a full-blown stock market crash is unfolding. The Shanghai Composite Index has plummeted more than 30 percent in less than a month, and the Chinese version of the NASDAQ has dropped by more than 40 percent. The amount of “paper wealth” that has been lost in China is 15 times greater than the GDP of Greece.

#3 Just the other day, hackers were able to hack into a German surface-to-air missile battery

Well, this is absolutely terrifying. According to The Local, hackers attacked a German Patriot surface-to-air missile battery, like the one shown above, stationed along the Turkish-Syria border. The cyber attack caused the battery to carryout “unexplained” orders.

It’s believed that cyber attackers managed to exploit the Patriot battery in two different ways. The first exploit was through the Sensor-Shooter-Interoperability, which controls interactions between the actual, physical missile launcher and its control system, while the other was on the guidance chip. These weaknesses could have allowed the hackers to steal data or, more worryingly, actually take control of the battery.

#4 Earlier this week, Barack Obama told reports that “we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces“…

#5 Just a few days ago, the U.S. Mint announced that they were sold out of American Eagle silver coins on the exact same day that the price of silver hit a new low for 2015. How does that make any sense?

#6 On June 30th, an unexpected blood moon was seen over a significant portion of the United States. The following is an excerpt from a recent article by Caiden Cowger

On June 30, 2015, a surprise blood moon appeared in the sky, that was only seen in the United States.

According to the National Weather Service, large wildfires in Canada have been burning. Due to extremely high winds, smoke from these fires have traveled into the United States.

According to NBC-Chattanooga, “the smoke should remain in the higher atmosphere and not affect air quality, it gives the moon and sun a rosy glow.

Here’s what causes the effect:

As light from the moon or sun enters the atmosphere it gets scattered by particles like water, aerosols, and in this case smoke. Green, blue, and purple colors are sent in all directions but colors with longer wavelengths like red, orange and yellow continue through the atmosphere and remain visible to the human eye.”

#7 Even though NASA recently stated that they know of “no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth” and that “no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years“, NASA has teamed up with the National Nuclear Security Administration to try to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons to destroy asteroids that are threatening our planet. If there is no threat, why spend so much time and energy on this?

#8 A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Barack Obama has issued 19 “secret directives“. What is Obama planning, and why won’t he let the general public know about it?

#9 This week, Pope Francis called for the creation of “a new economic and ecological world order where the goods of the Earth are shared by everyone, not just exploited by the rich.” So exactly what would such a “world order” look like?

#10 The Greek people just overwhelmingly voted to reject austerity, so EU officials have responded by giving the Greek government a one week deadline to come to an agreement that will include even more austerity for the Greek people. If the Greek government does not submit, EU officials are threatening them with bankruptcy, the collapse of their banking system and expulsion from the euro.

Things promise to only get stranger from here. One week from today, on July 15th, a massive military exercise known as “Jade Helm” begins. More than 1,000 members of the U.S. military will be taking part in drills that will be conducted in the states of Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California, Mississippi and Florida.

Then in September comes the end of the Shemitah year, the fourth blood moon of this tetrad, the launch of a radical new sustainable development agenda at the United Nations that is being endorsed by the Pope, and a vote on a UN Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state.

And that is just the stuff that we know about.

  1. Of all these items listed, the most dangerous is Obama himself….he I think, is an imposter set there by someone or group…if that is actually the case, the only outcome will be unimaginable horror….for us all

    • I do not like Obama on many levels, but you are blinded to what is going on by your hatred of him. He was not set there….he was elected by 65 million people. He has made some bad decisions (and a few good). He is not an imposter…he really IS the President; he really was elected; but I would wager you agree with him on his worst decisions, such as refusing to prosecute Bush for perjury and war crimes, drone attacks, funding the destruction Libya, Syria, Ukraine. These are terrible situations he has led us into by listening to the neo-cons in charge of US foreign policy.

      Ironically, those who call him a liar believe his lies about Russia, Syria, etc. They deal with this cognitive dissonance by believing he is an imposter. He is no more an imposter than all Presidents. Most of these claims are rooted in racism, as I see it, since the hatred started the day he took office and those who condemn him rarely give any specifics, since, I have found, they actually support his worst decisions but are unable to admit it. I denounce him for this policies in Ukraine, Israel, Syria, Yeman, and Libya but when I say the simple truth that he is the legitimate President, I am called an Obamabot or paid shill.

      I don’t think Obama is paying anyone to call him a war criminal. But, oddly, those who hate him (which is why I think it is denied racism), are the ones who actually support the policies which are part of his record of violating international law and crimes against humanity.

      • Obama has lied from day one since he has become our dictator or so called president. Obama is also doing drone attacks, he has made enemies with Israel as they was one of our good allies. I guess Muslims really do hate Jewish people as Obama is a Muslim. I support Obama in no way shape or form. Obama is also a racist.

        • You confirm what I said: you have hated him from day one, before he had a chance to do anything. As far as Israel, under Obama the US is still giving Israel billions in military aid. In addition, 70% of American Jews, whom he represents, supported him.

          Obama is a Christian who got in trouble for the Christian church he attended for 23 years. The claim that he is a racist is pure projection. Thank you for illustrating the point I was making.

          • don’t like it do you when another writer on this site calls you out…
            Ya that’s alI I got and that’s all that is required

          • dale ruff | July 10, 2015 at 7:38 pm |

            I find it amusing. Calling out horseshit is not calling someone out; it is just demonstrating your stupidity. And calling someone a shill is just lying, libeling, exercising hate speech. I love it when people display their vulgarity and ignorance…..thank you.

          • name calling is not my thing…..garbage though is just that…garbage….and has nothing to do with stupidity or enlightenment….it has to do with honesty….my friend…..

          • dale ruff | July 10, 2015 at 8:39 pm |

            What’s this? “horseshit my ….friend…you are a shill for the regime ….nothing more…geta life….which you now don’t have.” Just trash talk, personal insults, accusations….pure garbage. You are very amusing.

            Here’s some of the links I gave to that idiot dale….some you might want to keep….

            Here are 95 examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, and cronyism


            A whole 43 min video on proof of obama being a mulim:

            Anymore you want? I have at least 30 websites about obama, and all the stuff he’s done to show he is NOT an american, and willing to share with ya! I’ve shared with dale quite a few of them…maybe one day he’ll have his eyes opened to the evil we have in our government.

          • thanks…..did you read the non fiction….hardcover, book that was printed shortly after this imposter’s first election? Can’t recall the title…it detailed all the crooks he took with him from Chicago to the W H….talk about a bunch of hoodlums….Wow….I cked it out from our public library….

          • Ah, a video…..how can I doubt it? BTW, what is a mulim?

          • Joan Camara | July 12, 2015 at 2:15 pm |
          • Like all Presidents, Obama lies. What’s your point? That he is a normal President. Bush’s lies led to half a million deaths of civilians. Did you march against that war? Did you express outrage when McCain said we should bomb Iran? Or is it only the black President whose lies etc upset you?

          • Obamabot? More likely a “useful idiot” We watched the worst vote fraud EVER in the history of America! He got in, What we saw before he got in, was enough! He was a Chicago Crook, that assioated with crooks and communists! But Reid said: If we put him in, we can accuse anyone who discovers his crimes, of JUST BEING RACIST! The democrats knew he was not elgible, but as they now control the ENTIRE election system, it doesn’t matter! There is no election system anymore! Nor is there any governing of LAW. This usurper just does what he wants (actually he is told and even his speeches are written for him) With the NSA digging up dirt to blackmail the SCOTUS and other politicans, The men behind him rule America! Like I said, there is no more election system, only computer controlled vote counting machines (and Soros owns the controlling interest in all 3 of the companies).

          • there you go…………….with some ammo to back up my statements to the Imposter……he is a fake…………….god…one would think he would leave town in the late of night

          • absolutey….”the worst vote fraud ever” that happened with Obumer’s entry on our stage…a Complete Fraud………via anyone’s count that takes the time to research this whole implant of this man into our daily life………….The Single Biggest Shame in the Nations History

          • honest there was a voting prescient in the state of Ohio…a large one, that had not ONE vote for the challenger, John Mccain ……..takes only one of these incidents to tell all of us the truth….

          • There are districts, 100% African American, where no one voted for McCain. Since nationally, only 2% of Republicans are black (and these almost always are not poor blacks), it is not surprising there are districts where Republicans get no votes.

            snopes. com investigated claims such as you make and found

            Claim: “In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations — and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).”

            A precinct-by-precinct breakdown of the official voting results from Wood County, Ohio, for the 2012 election shows that Barack Obama received nowhere close to 100% of the votes cast in any of that county’s 97 precincts. The highest percentage he achieved in any one precinct was 75.5%.

            Claim: “In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.”

            The official Voter Turnout statistics for Ohio show Wood County recorded a total turnout of 64,342 voters, an amount far smaller than the number of registered voters in that county (108,014).

          • thank you……never the less, doesn’t make sense to me

          • michael lawless | July 13, 2015 at 9:40 am |

            well if snopes said its true it must be
            i know its true i read it on the internet
            a true libtard

          • Kill the messenger. Snopes is respected because it gives primary sources for its information. Clearly, you did not read the snopes analysis and so you are ignorant of the sources it used. Here is an example of the source for the primary vote breakdown:


            Intelligent people demand reliable sources; idiots don’t even check to see if they are provided. Which are you?

            Admit you didn’t read the snopes article and you didn’t know they use primary sources. Instead, you started with personal insults and name-calling. Shame.

          • michael lawless | July 14, 2015 at 4:14 am |

            no i didnt read snopes because like i said libtard dont believe everything you read on the internet
            wake up

          • dale ruff | July 14, 2015 at 8:10 am |

            snopes give primary sources for its claims. Thanks for admitting you just ignore evidence that doesn’t fit your cherished illusions. Name calling is no excuse for checking sources. If you would check the primary sources, you would find that the snopes article is based on reliable documentation. I gave a primary source but you don’t have the intelligence or the guts to check sources. Your comments can be dismissed as empty rhetortic. Wake up. If you don’t check sources, you are believing everything you read on the internet.

            Here is your logic:
            claim: snopes backs up its claims with primary sources.
            You: you are an idiot…you believe everything you read, you libtard.
            Me: NO, the snopes article give documented sources. Check it out for yourself.
            You I told you I don’t read snopes.
            Me…..Why not?
            You I told you, I don’t read snopes.
            Me: So you reject it without having read it?
            You: I told you, I don’t read snopes because it is for libtard idiots. I don’t need to read it.
            Me: But it provides primary sources.
            You: Libtard!

            I urge you to check primary sources to determine if a report is accurate or not; to do otherwise is to believe whatever you read on the internet, which by your logic makes YOU the libtard.

          • michael lawless | July 14, 2015 at 8:44 am |

            like i said i read it on the internet so it must be true

          • dale ruff | July 14, 2015 at 9:18 am |

            You are not too bright are you? Critical thinking demands that claims have sources, and assessing the value of information requires primary sources.
            What you are saying is something you read on the internet. I urge you to assess the value of a report based on its ability to document its sources, as snopes does. Dismissing an article you have not read, an article which bases its information of primary sources it provides, is pure stupidity, Perhaps you do not know what a primary source is. Perhaps you read on the internet that the way to dismiss documented information is by repeating mindlessly the phrase “I read it on the internet so it must be true.”

            The internet is full of truth and lies; whether you believe it or not has nothing to do with the fact that it is “on the internet” since nearly all human knowledge is now on the internet. Judgement is based on whether the information is supported by adequate sources. Primary sources are the gold standard.

            I know it is pointless to try to educate you since you have your learned response….but I just want to make it clear that only an idiot would dismiss good information because “it is on the internet.” I suggest you go to the snopes article and check out the primary sources and judge it based on that, as any intelligent person interested in the truth would do.

            Don’t be an idiot: do your own factchecking.

          • michael lawless | July 14, 2015 at 11:32 am |

            i know but everything on the internet is true because al gore invented it and he is my hero
            facts are just things that get in the way
            since when has a liberal every used real facts
            wake up libby
            i feel bad for you fools
            well not really
            wait until isis gets here and amerika collapses the liberals and the homos will be the first to go
            isis just loves you libtards
            once they have eliminated all of you useless sheeple
            we will take back our country and show them what real proud americans can do
            now get off the couch get out of mommies basement and get a job
            ps just so you know not everything snopes says is true

          • It is ironic that you DO believe everything you read on the internet while hiding from information which is backed up by primary sources, like the snopes article under discussion.

            1.Gore’s contributions to internet history have nothing to do with engineering or programming, which he never claimed. Instead, Gore introduced the legislation that would move what we now call the internet from its academic roots to a commercial enterprise.

            2. The snopes article bases its refutation of voter fraud on primary sources, which are linked in the article, from the local election districts.

            3. At 74, my mother had been dead for 20 years….I suggest you grow up, and take a look at the snopes article and check out the sources if you have the courage to give up lies you have read on the internet and verify the truth with primary sources you can find at snopes. Here, knowing how lazy you are, I will provide proof:

            In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations — and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

            A precinct-by-precinct breakdown (http://www.co.wood.oh.us/BOE/Election_Results/2012/Nov%206%202012%20Prect%20Breakdown%20Official.pdf) of the official voting results from Wood County, Ohio, for the 2012 election shows that Barack Obama received nowhere close to 100% of the votes cast in any of that county’s 97 precincts. The highest percentage he achieved in any one precinct was 75.5%.

            In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

            The official Voter Turnout statistics for Ohio show Wood County(http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/elections/Research/electResultsMain/2012Results/20121106turnout.aspx) recorded a total turnout of 64,342 voters, an amount far smaller than the number of registered voters in that county (108,014).

            In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

            This statement demonstrates a misunderstanding between the difference in “number of votes” cast and “number of cards” cast. The official election results from St. Lucie County, Florida, show, a total of 123,301 votes were cast for the office of President of the United States, but a total of 247,383 cards were cast because St. Lucie County used a two-page ballot (i.e., a ballot consisting of two cards), so every voter who returned both pages of his ballot cast two cards.

            As the web site of that county’s elections board (http://www.slcelections.com/) explains:) “Turnout percentages will show over 100% due to a two page ballot.
            Read more at http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/2012fraud.asp#CrceMJQRrXz5tjtz.99

            So there is documented proof that the claims made are false. If you don’t accept documented proof, you are a total idiot. You can prove that by refusing to check out the sources and doubling down on your claim that snopes is untrustworthy, without actually investigating on your own.

            oh yeah sorry i cant be racist im african american
            just ax my momma

          • That comment proves you are a white racist. Fuck off.

          • What is your evidence of voter fraud? There is none. Even foxnews admits it is all but non-existent: “Several states adopted new laws last year requiring that people show a photo ID when they come to vote even though the kind of election fraud that the laws are intended to stamp out is rare.

            Even supporters of the new laws are hard pressed to come up with large numbers of cases in which someone tried to vote under a false identify.

            Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott, a Republican, launched an investigation in 2005 to uncover what he called an “epidemic” of voter fraud. But reviews of Abbott’s investigation two years later yielded no cases of voter impersonation fraud. A Dallas Morning News review in 2008 found the 26 cases prosecuted were all against Democrats, most involved blacks and Hispanics, and typically involved people who helped elderly voters with mail-in ballots, but failed to follow state law by signing their names and addresses on the envelopes.

            Abbot’s investigation was paid for with a $1.4 million Justice Department crime-fighting grant.

            After a five-year hunt for voter fraud, the Bush administration’s Justice Department came up with little widespread fraud, finding mostly cases of people mistakenly filling out voter registration forms or voting when they didn’t know they were ineligible, The New York Times reported in 2007. But none of the cases involved a person voting as someone else.”

            Electoral fraud, on the otherhand, is widespread, being used by Republicans in the 2000 election to defeat Gore with “purge lists” of felons, which were used to disqualify thousands of non-felons who shared names (or parts of names on the list).

            If you look up Florida Central Voter File (Wikipedia), you will find the deliberate creation of “false positives” as a strategy to disqualify mostly Democratic voters.

            “The first list DBT Online ( private firm) provided to the Division of Elections in April 2000 contained the names of 181,157 persons. Approximately 65,776 of those included on the first list were identified as felons.

            In May

            2000, DBT discovered that approximately 8,000 names were erroneously placed on the exclusion list, mostly those of former Texas prisoners who were included on a DBT list that turned out never to have been convicted of more than a misdemeanor. Later in the month, DBT provided a revised list to the Division of Elections (DOE) containing a total of 173,127 persons. Of those included on the “corrected list”, 57,746 were identified as felons.

            Between May 1999 and Election Day 2000, two Florida secretaries of state, Sandra Mortham and Katherine Harris, distributed the scrub lists produced by the cleansing process to counties and ordered the 57,700 people identified as felons to be removed from voter rolls. Together the lists comprised nearly 1% of Florida’s electorate and nearly 3% of its African-American voters.[citation needed]

            At the time of the election, the purge list contained a number of false positives — people identified as felons who were not actually felons.

            Details about the errors[edit]

            There were many specific problems with the purge list regarding the verification of felons, including over 4,000 blank conviction dates, and over 325 conviction dates dating in the future.[9]

            Nearly 3,000 out-of-state felons with voting rights restored, as well as voters linked to felonies in states which do not remove felons from voting rolls or that automatically restore voting rights, were included on the list. According to a 1998 ruling by the 2nd District Court of Appeals, they cannot then be ruled ineligible by another state.” Wikipedia

            Thus election fraud by Republican state officials purged thousands of voters, mostly those likely to vote Democratic and robbed them of their right to vote.

            “”I told my brother we were going to deliver Florida; we’re going to keep that promise, aren’t we?” Bush told an enthusiastic crowd at Daytona Beach’s Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.”

            So while voter fraud is extremely rare, and when found almost always is not fraud but a mistake, electoral fraud has been used to determine Presidential elections.

            idiot yes useful doubt that very much

          • absolute not true….if you will look closely

          • dale ruff | July 10, 2015 at 8:41 pm |

            I have looked closely. Obama won by 5 million votes. 49% of Republicans believe the election was rigged by Acorn, which was dismantled 3 yrs before the election. You have zero.

          • I didn’t start hating him from day one. Obama is nothing but a habitual liar and he did get an award for that. He started out with ” If you have your doctor, you can keep your doctor” ETC, ETC. He knew he was telling lies, but yet he kept it up. How soon did you try to forget that. So the U.S. is giving Israel weapons ? I haven’t seen that but as sure as i use my real name, Obama hates Israel . So you think Obama is a Christian ? You better look up the video where he ” Admits ” to being a Muslim. Obama was going to Reverend Wrights church which was far from being a Christian church as Wright was spewing Anti American garbage. Obama is nothing more that a piece of shit and i bet you are glad you voted for the piece of garbage he is. I also see he has you brainwashed like all the other idiots who voted for him. I really feel sorry for you. May i also suggest that you read the post of adbj102 .

          • Do you support his decision not to prosecute the Bush administration for perjury and war crimes? I’ll bet you do. I denounce him for his neo-con foreign policy of droning and aid to “opposition” in Libya, Syria, and Ukraine? Do you?

            Did you hate Bush for his lies, which led to half a million civilian deaths in Iraq and his claiming to be a “fiscal conservative” while more than doubling the debt.

            Compared to Bush’s lies, Obama’s lies are minor. I sense you have always hated him, a sentiment that most likely is based on the color of his skin.

            As for keeping your own doctor, that assumed your own doctor would continue to treat you. The government cannot force doctors to treat a patient but nothing in the ACA forced doctors to reject patients or insurance providers to cancel existing policies. Obama should have said: you can keep your doctor or you existing policy if your doctor or insurance company offers it.

            Bush, whom you no doubt supported, told bald-faced lies which led to the deaths of 500,000 people. His Patriot Act robbed you of civil rights, and his economic policies cost you dearly. To his credit, he was white.

          • Jim Evans | July 13, 2015 at 5:33 pm |

            I didn’t support Bush on a lot of his policies and if he was to be prosecuted for war crimes it should of been done a long time ago. You could also say the very same thing about Obama. Obama has told more lies than Bush ever did and i think you probably forgot about that. For the year of 2014, Obama was voted ” Liar Of The Year ” I don’t hate Obama on the color of his skin as you say, but he is just a worthless president. Obama has also continued the Patriot Act for your information. Obama trades five or six high level terrorists for one deserter. He has no foreign policy and Bush didn’t go around the world apologizing to other world leaders like Obama did. I bet you forgot about that too. Obama ” LIED ” about ObamaCare or the ” Affordable Health Care Act ” and for a lot of people it is far from affordable. Also if a person didn’t get it, the can ” Fine ” you or as the call it a Fee. Same damn thing. Yep, Welcome to Obama’s world. Also who really cares about the civilian deaths in Iraq as they would 3end up fighting against us anyway. They did nothing for this country and my friend ” War is Hell ” and you probably never been in combat, so you would have no clue. By the way, how many civilians have been killed overseas while under the Obama administration ?

          • You didn’t answer the question. You weasel out. I asked: did you support Obama’s decision not to investigate and prosecute war crimes.

            As for civilians killed under Bush over 500,000 and under Obama, possibly a few thousand.

            I await your answer. Should Obama have prosecuted for perjury and war crimes when he came into office. Did you agree with his decision.

            There is no statute of limitation on war crimes for good reason. War criminals for WWII have been prosecuted in recent years. Are you with Obama or not on letting Bush off the hook? Can you give a simple honest answer with no weaseling?

            Do I understand you to suggest that the killing of women and children and elderly and wounded in Iraq doesn’t matter because they will end up fighting us anyway?

            By that logic, we should kill every last child in Iraq. Of course, they can’t fight us if we are not there.

            It doesn’t take combat to know that war is hell, stupid, and a racket. One of the great sadnesses in my life is to see so many vets from the criminal war in Vietnam come back destroyed mentally. While they were risking their lives in killing Vietnamese (nearly 3 million civilians, 1 million children and women), I was risking my ass confronting the police and National Guard to try to bring the troops home in one piece. I refused to participate in a criminal war and did all I could, with millions of other including returned vets, to end it.

            How sad to see so many vets destroyed in mind and spirit by that ugly evil war.

            So did you support Obama’s decision or not, my friend? I denounced it as a terrible decision which lets leaders get away with lying and mass murder. It is never to late to have justice…….

          • Joan Camara | July 12, 2015 at 2:01 pm |

            Here’s 15 second clip showing obama saying he’s training Isil forces. And you probably don’t see nothing wrong with this either?? Your really really blind if you don’t…and the guy with all the medals behind him? Doesn’t even bat an eye!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2NkjNvwuaU

          • He meant Iraqi……US Presidents since Carter have supported al Quada…….in one form or another. Obama’s worst feature is that he is a typical politician. He does have the distinction of getting more death threats, including against his family, than any President….not because he is black, of course, but because he is a typical President. Racism is no more.

          • verdiblue | July 13, 2015 at 9:11 pm |

            obama is NOT a Christian. and of course you believe him when he says that he didn’t notice or pay attention to the rantings of the head preacher there. and you might want to have a look at michelles thesis – she is more racist than her husband

          • dale ruff | July 13, 2015 at 9:32 pm |

            For 23 years, he did not notice the church he attended was the Unity Church of Christ, and for 23 years, no one noticed that when everyone bowed their heads, he got on the floor and faced East.

            As for Michelle’s thesis at Princeton, it explored the racial divide of the university based on questions she sent out to 400 black Princeton students on their experiences. To recognize cultural differences resulting from hundreds of years of racism is not racism but an attempt to understand it. Obama is not a racist….he honors both his African and his American-European heritage.

            I can see you hate him, and I can’t find a rational reason other than racism.

            You can yell it out but it is just a pretext for your bigotry. Suppose he was a Muslim, so what? So are 1.6 billion people.

            As for this black preacher at the Unity Church, he had the same beliefs as Nelson Mandela, Dr. King, and many liberation theologans and preachers.
            He condemned the US for its mistreatment of blacks, and so does any decent person.

            I suggest you crawl back under the rock you emerged from and stew in your own racist hatred without spreading it as a toxin to others.

          • true – despise the man and his wife – if indeed she is that. the whole family seems strange. but anyway – michelle not bigoted huh? why did she only interview blacks? as for mandela? a card carrying member of the communist party whose wife invented necklacing.
            he faced east for a reason – yes he is a muslim. and if you cant see a problem with a muslim running a country that was founded on judeo Christian foundations then you will get what you deserve come martial law day but my bet is that as he swings the sword on your neck you’ll be thanking him for his kindness in that your beheading was swift. he is destroying your country bit by bit. talk about blind….
            tho the dead rise still they would not believe.

          • She was doing a thesis on the experiences of blacks attending a 95% non-black institution.

          • You doubt that Michelle is Obama’s wife? Where do you get this shit?

            Was Mandala a Communist when they were fighting against apartheid. Yes. So what. Many great men have been communists. Even Bill O’Reilly agrees with that: “O’Reilly said, “Nelson Mandela — I spent some time in South Africa. He was a communist, this man. He was a communist. All right? But he was a great man. What he did for his people was stunning — the sacrifices that he made. He could have repudiated and got out of that prison. He wouldn’t do it. He was a great man. But he was a communist.”

            Communists in many nations fought for justice and in the US the end of legal segregation, the rights of women, etc. In the Civil Rights struggle, communists marched with Christians, liberals, and even some Republicans who supported civil rights.

            Winnie Mandala did not invent necklacing, which was used as a form of justice, but she did defend it, which caused the ANC to distance itself from her.

            Did you take seriously when I said in a Christian church for 23 yrs Obama went his knees and faced East? You will believe anything that makes him look bad, won’t you. You probably think his wife is a man and he is a homosexual.

            Your fantasies about beheadings are disturbing. You need help.

          • So what about Obama’s hometown having huge townhall meetings trashing Obama, Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson because they finally realized they’re all full of [email protected] Obama told them he was going to help them if they elected him, once the sociopath got elected, he could care less. These meetings were about 100% black people. So do they hate him because he’s black?


            There are good and bad people in every race. The bad ones shouldn’t cause people of other races to hate their entire race.
            Years ago, I used to listen to conservative talk radio almost every day, Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh. In that time, there were three callers who called in, two of them identified themselves as black & said that they were sorry to say it, but their race has the most racist people in the United States. The third was a lady who identified herself as a white lady. She said that she had adopted two babies from Africa, who were grown up now and they came home one day and told her that black people are racist. Because the two kids were black, the other blacks told them what they really think. These three people called in at three different times, to three different talk shows.
            Another time, I was eating lunch at jack in the box and there was a couple of white people visiting from another country and a bunch of us eating lunch were talking. The tourists wanted to know where they should go and a black lady that was there said, ” whatever you do don’t go to Inglewood, those are my people, I don’t know what’s wrong with them.”

            I’m really tired of racist black people calling white people devils and other things, when in fact anyone who hates someone they don’t even know is a racist.

            Obama, Bush, and Clinton are all buddies. They’ve been flying around in Air Force One partying together. They’re all sociopaths and all took part in the incremental agenda of advancing a Marxist world dictatorship. George Bush, refused to investigate the 9/11 attacks until being relentlessly pressured by the families of the victims and their lawyers. Then hand picked the team that did the phony investigation. Since then 9/11 has been proven to be an inside job. Why? To falsely justify the Patriot Act, and suspend our Constitutional rights, authorize Homeland Security, the TSA and the beginning our our current Police State. Obama’s “Fundamental Change”, was just the next increment of our phony two party dog and pony show’s continuation of the implementation of our new Marxist dictatorship. We have United Nations Agenda 21, United Nations Common Core (brainwashing of our kids in our government run schools), United Nations demanding the government confiscate our weapons, Mexico & China also demanding our government confiscate our weapons, Obama telling Congress he doesn’t answer to them, he answers to the UN. In 2014 our border patrol was told to stand down, open the borders and even give bus transportation to illegals to Greyhound bus stations to be transported throughout the US. This is on homeland securities own website. A solicitation to contract businesses to transport illegal aliens throughout the US, a 5 year contract. There’s much more, do some research.

            You’re the one who has the racial bias. In the last Presidential election, there were democrat voters bragging about voting 6 times, there were States where more people voted than the population. Democrats were telling illegals to vote. There’s video of Hillary Clinton & Harry Reid making speeches years ago saying the illegals are hurting the country. Until more recently after they realized if they give them welfare, the illegals will vote democrat. Now they encourage them to vote, so they can stay in power.

          • Joan Camara | July 26, 2015 at 3:08 pm |

            A Christian?? Wow, you are REALLY dumb! He himself, can’t even make up his mind what he is, or did you not see that video either…??

          • dale ruff | July 26, 2015 at 6:46 pm |

            Joan, I need a video; Obama has been attending Christian churches for over 35 years and out of college, he was a community organizer working for the Catholic Church. That’s pretty overwhelming evidence.

            And if he were a Muslim, so what? Why are you obsessed with his religion unless you are harboring religious bigotry? I don’t care what his religion is.
            Why should anyone?

            Are you aware many Founding Fathers denounced Christianity? He wrote in Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom: “The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit. We are answerable for them to our God. The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. … Reason and free enquiry are the only effectual agents against error.”

            Jefferson to the Baptist Association of Danbury, Connecticut). “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship.”

            Obama’s religion, which for over 35 years has been Christian is none of your business. Fuck off!

          • dale ruff | July 26, 2015 at 6:53 pm |

            Jefferson to the Baptist Association of Danbury, Connecticut). “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship…..”

            Translation from Jefferson: “Fuck off; my religion is none of your business.”

      • horseshit my ….friend…you are a shill for the regime ….nothing more…
        geta life….which you now don’t have

        • You clearly do not know what you are talking about, thus the vulgarity and absurd claims. I am being paid to say that countries like Mexico and Haiti or El Salvador have police states? Recently, I stopped in El Salvador airport on my way from Costa Rica back to the US. A dead-eyed cop with an Uzi and mean looking dog looked ready to shoot me on the spot.

          Police in Mexico are militarized, underpaid, and often work with drug cartels and the military. Here is a recent example of their brutality: “43 students who were protesting discriminatory hiring practices for teachers in Mexico have disappeared at the hands of the Mexican police and are feared to have been handed over by the police to drug cartels or criminal gangs to be executed. Six burial pits have been found on the outskirts of the town where the protesting students were disappeared and relatives are awaiting the results of DNA testing to identify the bodies.” http://www.soaw.org/news/organizing-updates/4256-mexicostudents

          In Haiti last year, “Two musicians who were on stage at the time told a local Haitian radio station they saw an officer beating up revelers, and others fired automatic weapons into the air and tear gas onto the crowd of 20,000 to 30,000, creating a stampede.
          The violence caused 43 casualties

          .Earlier this month the country’s leading human rights group, the National Human Rights Defense Network, issued a report detailing recent acts of police brutality saying that it was concerned about “an alarming upsurge in violent beatings causing death” perpetrated by HNP agents.

          Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/americas/haiti/article1981305.html#storylink=cpy

          From Sudan, police killings are common “South Sudan should take immediate action to end human rights violations including torture, shootings and sexual violence by security forces carrying out a civilian disarmament campaign in Jonglei State, Amnesty International said in a new report today.”

          “Two leading rights groups say Sudanese police have killed at least 50 people during protests (over fuel prices) in the last week, often “shooting to kill”.”

          Etc. etc.

          You are clearly just trolling, looking for pretexts to vent your toxic view of life, totally ignorant of the widespread abuse of police power. Enjoy.

          • You could also tell us what happens after the citizens are disarmed! Then the genocide begins, Murdering Christians! And THE DEMOCRATS WANT ALL OF THE HONEST TAXPAYERS DISARMED, They even claim that America’s worst enemies are the honest TAXPAYERS! Now, what does that make them?

          • absolutely….well said

      • @”dale ruff” – I tried very hard to ignore your finely focused vitriol and ad hominem attacks, which only seem to reflect your cherished opinions and well-defended stories about the world, and possibly to hang out red meat to garner more reaction, which you also seem to cherish. However, “He was not set there….he was elected by 65 million people… He is not an imposter…” is just too ignorant and counterproductive to ignore.

        Please do some research. There is a LOT of great, well documented and written material out there showing Barry Soetaro’s roots, background, and probable grooming by very powerful interests to put him in his position to further the communitarian destruction of the once great nation once called the United States of America. This is not a matter of opinion. Just because it is not covered by the corrupt media does not diminish the truth, as is always the case now due to the monopoly ownership of what’s left of our public communications by the global social engineers of the elite consensus. Being “legitimately” (and, IMO, this is questionable) elected as “President” does not make someone any less of a placeman. In fact, since the murder of JFK, anyone elected is assuredly so, simply the figurehead of what is demonstrably a criminal conspiracy. But, again IMO, no weaker person than Obama has yet occupied the Oval office. If you can’t see that, you don’t have the requisite intuition to be out parading your half-baked opinions in public. Go ahead and flame me, it’s all you know.

        • Ah, your real name.

          You say: I tried very hard to ignore your finely focused vitriol and ad hominem attacks.

          Here is where it started: ” “horseshit my ….friend…you are a shill for the regime ….nothing more…geta life….which you now don’t have.”

          Under US election law, the person who gets the most electoral votes is the legitimate President. As for his place of birth, that was proved with the original birth certificate and two confirmed notices in Honolulu newspapers.

          That is not a defense, just a fact. In fact, I consider some of his acts to be war crimes. Is that shilling. You are quite amusing. I am not flaming but presenting facts. If that inflames you, you need therapy.

          Do you support his decision not to investigate/prosecute the war crimes and perjury of the Bush administration? Do you have the courage to tell the truth?
          Or would you rather produce more hackneyed trash talk?

          • michael lawless | July 13, 2015 at 9:44 am |

            ask lorreta fuddy about that

          • Ask the Hawaii office that stores birth certificates and the two newspapers that reported his birth.

        • you are correct and ignore this ruff guy………he is wallowing in his own stuff right now…………………

          • My stuff is fact and evidence. People do not need you to tell them to ignore me. Why don’t YOU just ignore me and let others make their own decisions. I feel badly for the hatred and irrationality that you are living with.

      • you complete phony………………get out of my site

        • Ok, you are irrational and filled with hatred and cannot give a reason for your hatred. This is not YOUR site. I have been posting here for years. It is a public forum. I suggest you just stop insulting me and I will have no motive to defend myself.

      • OK, here’s a 43 min video, on showing obama and all the proof you need that he is a muslim……https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tKMiRxnRN4

    “we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces“… hilarious…. a secret directive?

  4. Because Obama is the biggest terrorist threats this country has ever seen. I do think that he might declare Martial Law during the Jade Helm exercises. His secretive ass is up to something and the American public should demand to know what it is all about. So what happened to his ” Transparent Administration ” ? Just another lie from Obama.

    • Did you agree with his decision not to investigate and prosecute perjury and war crimes of the Bush administration? You have been dodging a straightforward response. That would imply you DO agree with his decision. You are, in fact, a supporter of some of Obama’s worst decisions while pretending to denounce him. Just another lie from Evans.

      • Yes i do agree with him not to investigate and prosecute perjury crimes and war crimes of the Bush Administration. Why, Because Obama should be tried for treason for making deals with our enemies, There, i hope that makes you happy. You can’t prosecute one while the other one is doing the same exact thing. I am not supporting Obama in any way, shape or form. For you information , i don’t tell lies. I didn’t like Bush and i don’t like Obama. Now, you are not even saying whose side you are on. I think it is about time to tell me what you think about Bush and Obama. I will say Bush had a backbone and balls to do what he did unlike Obama. The only thing that Obama might of done good was to have Osama Bin Laden killed and that is very debatable as no pictures of his body was shown and they got rid of his body so quick, if in fact it was him. They did show pictures of Saddam Hussein when he was executed. So Ruff, man up or shut up.

        • You do not agree with Obama “in any way, shape, or form” and yet you support his first important decision. Classic!

          Your reason is that he is himself a war criminal. Well, he wasn’t when he made that decision, and your logic is upside down, since your support of Obama on this decision means sets the precedent of future leaders being able to lie and commit war crimes and get away with it, including Obama.

          If, like me, you had denounced this decision, not only would the precedent be that lies and war crimes would be prosecuted but Obama himself would be held accountable.

          Thus, you support Obama in his worst decisions and agree that Presidents should be allowed to get away with perjury and mass murder.

          I don’t get the “man up or shut up.” I think leaders should be held accountable. You don’t. You should man up or shut up, since you are the one supporting Obama on this and defending the right of Presidents to get away with war crimes.

          You say you don’t tell lies: here is a lie you admit:

          ” I am not supporting Obama in any way, shape or form. For you information , i don’t tell lies

          Yes i do agree with him not to investigate and prosecute perjury crimes and war crimes of the Bush Administration.”

          So you lie and you support the right of Presidents to get away with war crimes. And then you tell me to “man up.” Very funny.

      • By the way Dale Ruff, Why is your activity so private, what do you have to hide ?

    • I don’t call myself Dale Ruff. That is my name.

            “horseshit my ….friend…you are a shill for the regime ….nothing more…
            geta life….which you now don’t have” and continually calling me a fake without once giving a reason for doing so is hardly “respect.”

            In my youth, I risked my ass to try to stop the criminal war in Vietnam and keep people like you from destroying their bodies and minds in that war….I joined with many vets to oppose that war to spare more young men the devastating experience of participating in a criminal enterprise.

            You ask what I am: I am a person who has lived his life opposing injustice and deception and who, in his retirement, has taken on the obligation to speak the truth about US policies, lies, and myth, opposing falsehood where I find it. I am a human being with a conscience.

      • you are a phony ….nothing more……….and with no shame……………..even worse

        • I’m sorry you think that. What have I faked? I wanted to find common ground as individuals opposed to war. I have no idea why you think I am a fake. I assure you I do not lie. I do not make shit up. I practice what I preach. If that’s not good enough and you would rather make an enemy than an ally, that is your choice. You seem very messed up…..I feel sad for you.

      • alright mr Dale Ruff….tell me about yourself…some thing that I am able to independily verify….

  7. Our prime minister in Canada was put in charge by Americas CIA………so……..who put Obama in charge?

  8. Greece is nothing but an experiment……they will not recover they will fail so the true world leaders can gauge how people will react before doing the same thing to the rest of the world Jesus walks among us NOW he is 32……this time…..

  9. Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.
