Popular and widely read Egyptian newspaper Al Wafd published the above picture today portraying U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama as Satan himself. The unflattering picture has been making the rounds on Facebook in the Middle East and, according to Al Wafd, is representative of the hatred growing numbers of people in the region have for the American president, thanks to his staunch and unwavering support for Islamists and jihadiis — whether in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt, or Syria — even as they terrorize, murder, rape, and burn down Christian churches, that is, even as they engage in diabolical activities.

So the President that was going to restore the US’s credibility around the World an Especially in the Middle East is viewed with such loving respect. President Obama has continually backed the forces of Evil in the Middle East, and the average person on the Arab street knows it.

The sad part is how many here in the West refuse to look at his actions and judge them honestly. James Carville went as far last night as to blame George Bush for Obama’s current problems in Syria. You get the Government you deserve. We in the States put this man in power, twice.

We have complete economic collapse at home, and expanding death and destruction over sea’s that can be laid directly at his feet. Yet those who support him refuse to even acknowledge Obama’s part in any of  it, while they blamed Bush if they caught a cold during his Presidency, and still today they blame him.

Now I ask how can one President be responsible for everything that occurred under his term while another is held responsible for nothing? And you people that support him want to be taken seriously.

    “Now I ask how can one President be responsible for everything that occurred under his term while another is held responsible for nothing?”

    Because many people interested in politics are just like you – partisans who see the sun shining out of their man’s arse while the other lot are Satan’s minions.

    You demonstrated the trait in the post. You said that “complete economic collapse” can be laid at Obama’s feet. While economic collapse is a mathematical certainty at some point in the future, Obama has effected no change in the economic course of the country.

    Incidentally, if you run the link’s text through google translate, you see that the image has the Star of David on the chest, and apparently is cirulated in response to threats to wage war on Syria.

    The CIA theory of blowback explains that such acts always spark reactions.

  2. Oh bull Obama has effected no economic change, your being foolish. His healthcare has destroyed 1/6th of the economy, and is destroying fulltime job employment. Not to mention the ripple effect of all the major companies that are dropping spouses and family members from employee healthplans.

    Plus there is a list of a thousand other detrimental effects he has lead the way on. It is true the majority of the collapse can be laid at Democrats in Congresses feet but the President is the one that sets the direction, and the direction he has lead is right over the cliff.

    As for the star of david.. no shit sherlock. We are the big Satan Israel is the little Satan. In their minds it adds justification for any attacks they do on Israel as a result of this fools actions.

    It never ceases to amaze me how you can take anything, even an anti american ad running in the ME and flip it back so the focus of the post has nothing to do with what is posted.

    Pete you hate America, we get it. Join the rest of the Jihadis and terrorists that you would rather support.

  3. // President Obama has continually backed the forces of Evil in the Middle East, and the average person on the Arab street knows it.//

    Yet they are the very people you’d like to mass murder.

    By the way, that “Popular and widely read Egyptian newspaper” has a circulation of around 9,000 – in a country with a population of over 80 Million. Probably even the Tea Party Times has a larger readership, if that lot can read.

  4. I don’t want to mass murder anyone Noel.

    And if you have a complaint about how the publication is represented blame the MSM that I copied it from.

  5. by the way whats the subscription rate of the NYT? Answer just over 1 million, in a nation of 300 million, so gee that has less support than WALFD

  6. //I don’t want to mass murder anyone Noel.//

    You regularly call for the carpet bombing of the “people in the region with a hatred for the American president, thanks to his staunch and unwavering support for Islamists”, again just in the past few days.

    BTW, if you approvingly quote something, you should stand behind it. Otherwise you make yourself look foolish when it’s shown to be wrong, as it is here.

    //Answer just over 1 million, in a nation of 300 million, so gee that has less support than WALFD//

    So now we can add maths to the seemingly endless list of things you haven’t a clue about.

  7. “//Answer just over 1 million, in a nation of 300 million, so gee that has less support than WALFD//”

    Oh boy!

    And this from the bozo who blamed Clinton for the economic collapse in 2008!!!!

  8. Troll –

    The president does not set the economic direction. The office is pretty incidental to the economy.

    Listen, a serious word of advice –

    The Federal Reserve is vastly more powerful than either the White House or Congress in affecting and deforming the economy. It does this primarily through manipulating the money supply and interest rates.

    Once an increased rate of money supply (inflation) has fuelled an inflationary boom (in, say, housing or the stock market), those markets then become vulnerable to downturns (recessions) when the rate of money supply slows. The supply of new money dwindles, curtailing demand in those markets, precipitating declines in prices.

    Yes, so far?

    In recent months the rate of money supply growth from the Fed has slowed. It actually went negative for a few months.

    In addition, the velocity of money (the rate at which it circulates through the economy) has plummeted.

    Now none of this has anything to do whatsoever with the president. This is what goes on at the Federal Reserve and it affects the economy massively. These recent monetary signals might precipitate a downturn again. The Fed can turn the tap on quickly at any time, but it’s exactly that behaviour which causing the economy to bounce up and down like a yo-yo.

  9. Noel carpet bombing enemy territory is not mass murder, it’s War. I know you strugle with the definitions of War. You confuse it with many things, like Irish Terrorism and other acts, but it isn’t the same.

    Pete you have no concept of how any system works. You prove that daily, debating the subtleties of the American system with you is like trying to explain bioengineering to 1st grader.

    Phantom the readership wasn’t the point of anything, it was just an example of the stupidity of Noels remark regarding the Arab paper. You actually enhance my point with your comment.

  10. As for –

    “Noel carpet bombing enemy territory is not mass murder, it’s War.”

    – Tom Woods spoke about people like you and others who think like that.

    I posted the video. Roll it forward to 10.45 and see yourself. In fact watch it all. I strongly recommend the entire discussion to everyone.

  11. President Obama has continually backed the forces of Evil in the Middle East, and the average person on the Arab street knows it.

    Troll i love the simple world you inhabit. One where events only become illuminated because you dont happen to like the executive for those events.

    The grand strategy has been the same for several decades. You should view the differences between events in iraq and those in say libya etc as cost reductions for the same results.

  12. Pete, did you not say that it was the commercial banks that were holding onto the dosh, which they got almost free from their respective central banks, and that it’s this that’s staving off Inflation so far.

  13. Noel Cunningham –

    Well remembered.

    I said that commercial banks are holding onto ‘excess reserves’. In short, they are amounts in excess of the reserve requirement which banks are required to hold.

    In the US alone, banks have some $2 trillion deposited with the Federal Reserve as excess reserves. This is cash which the banks are sitting on, much of which originated as Federal Reserve money creation. Banks were given the money at low or no interest, and they deposited it back with the Fed to earn interest.

    My point about (price) inflation is that if these reserves were called on by the banks and put out into the economy (via customer loans), prices might well rise significantly. In this scenario it’s of course the poorest who are penalised.

    This is partially related but also seperate from to the Fed’s general money supply. It will continue to rise in the long term because the federal government is running such massive deficits, and the Federal Reserve is monetising the debt (creating cash from nothing and swapping it for US treasury bonds). Across the West, this inflation tax is the mechanism which keeps governments from bankruptcy.

    I don’t know why the money supply has tightened this year (which banks can cover by calling on excess reserves), or why the velocity of money has declined, but these are the kind of indicators which precede changes in the general economy.

  14. BUT when the money enters the economy as debt i.e. as money loaned by the banks to the participants of the economy, the usury of the loan means that more must be paid back than was loaned i.e. more money must come out of the economy to the banks than was put into the economy by the banks. The only way to stop a complete crash is therefore to create more money to be loaned as debt and the cycle restarts – and yet more money will go to the banks.

  15. Inflation and deflation can exist concurrently.

    The outflow of ‘capital’ from central banks to tier one recipients merely keeps the patient in suspended animation. It does not effectively produce more real money. Only a real economy can inflate real capital through production and wages. As this is not where the money is travelling then there is no meaningful bottom line inflation, plus any actual inflation is dampened by suppressing wages, cutting off the (real economic) cycle. Also corporations are sitting on huge cash piles, and thus not putting that money to sound use but keeping it in circulation in the inflationary sphere where they can make more money than risking it in real world investments. Eg a fortune 500 doesnt invest in r&d or new capacity, but simply makes acquisitions in the existing economy. This looks like growth when viewed from the “markets”, but nothing new has been created. They may not even user their cash pile but borrow some of that cheap cash on offer via the teir ones.

    We now fully have a two teir economy where upper asset owners exist in an inflationary system largely abstracted from the lower productive/service tier which exists in a deflationary plain. Theirs is a world of free money and social safety nets while we are told that a handful of benefit cheats in housing estates are the problem.

  16. All very interesting, slightly scary and – in the case of a CB lending out money practically free and then taking it back as deposits and paying interest – totally mad.

  17. Tripper it has nothing to do with the executive. He has supported the Muslim Brotherhood at every opportunity. Facts are facts, just because you refuse to acknowledge them is irrelevant.

    He met with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt before he sold out Mubarak, he went through the Muslim Brotherhood with the over throw of Gaddafi.

    You refuse to acknowledge undeniable facts.

  18. Noel – that is the system and those who control the money, being known as the Money Power, will do whatever is necessary to retain that control. All of the major corporations are owned by the banks which the Money Power owns through interlinking shareholdings and directorships:

    A University of Zurich study ‘proves’ that a small group of companies – mainly banks – wields huge power over the global economy.

  19. Repeating a nonsense does not convert it to a truth

    Obama does not ” support MB ”

    He did not ” sell out Mubarak ”

    The Egyptians wanted Mubarak out at the time. What was Obama supposed t do to save him?

    Do you think that Egyptians should select their own leaders, or do you have that right?

  20. you want to know what we have the right to do?

    not saying what Obama is doing falls into this, but here.

    We go to war with Anyone who impinges on America’s freedom. Terrorist states, Phantom. Someone must bring their war to them. They bomb a church, we bomb ten. They hijack a plane, we take out an airport. They execute American tourists, we tactically nuke an entire city. Our job is to make terrorism so horrific that it becomes unthinkable to attack Americans.

    That is what we have the RIGHT to do, and must do.

    The current administration lacks the balls to do that, so it will go wrong. That’s why I’m against this action. It will not cause fear, it will cause laughter.

  21. Troll 310

    How exactly did / does Obama support the MB? ( be careful in the response. Continuing the aid to Egypt when Morsi was President is not supporting the MB )

    Some say we sold out Mubarak, some say we sold out Morsi. But nobody says how, or what the alternative should have been.

    We don’t control Egypt. We never have controlled it, and never could, even if we wanted to.. We are an actor, with some influence, but it is an Egyptian show. Success or failure in any field is under their ownership, period.

  22. The current administration lacks the balls to do that, so it will go wrong. That’s why I’m against this action. It will not cause fear, it will cause laughter.

    It will cause WW3

    So Trollio, your solution to terrorism is to become the biggest baddest terrorists? Some where there is a little puppy crying

  24. There will be no tactical nuking of any cities.

    For many moral and practical reasons, including that this would completely play into the hands of the likes of Al Queda, Hezbollah, whoever we’re talking about here. They’d greet the news with delight.
