The 2013 Hipster Douchebag Quote of the Year goes to: Cass Ghiorse (even the name sounds fake but the quote is one of those instant signs you have a hipster, self important, idiotic, plastic mannequin in your presence) here is Cass:
As a server at Marlow & Sons, the nose-to-tail temple in Williamsburg, Ms. Ghiorse said she loved being surrounded by “that unbelievably saturated population” of creative influencers, like James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem.
While she savors the space and mental calm of the suburbs, she finds herself looking hopefully for signs of creative ferment. “We’ve found it in pockets,” Ms. Ghiorse said. “Once in a while, you’ll think, ‘This place gets it,’ because they have a Fernet Branca cocktail on their menu.”
In Campaign 2012 not one so called journalist asked President Obama how tough it was to order the killing of an American citizen by drone strike, how much did he deliberate, was it a tougher decision than all of the media hype surrounding his decision to kill Bin Laden with a group of Navy Seals?
The idiots in the mainstream media bought the garbage line that President Obama made a tough and calculating decision to kill Bin Laden, really, President Obama orders people killed every week, just about every week there is a drone strike and Obama signs off on Blowhard Brennan’s kill list, do you really think he was going to pass on killing Bin Laden.
OK but even if you believe this was such a tough decision, can the Obama sycophants in the media extend the logic downward and ask him this simple question. President Obama, did you take more time in the decision to order the killing of an American citizen than you did in the decision to kill Osama Bin Laden? Further you can ask President Obama, if you know where an American citizen is in Yemen, why can’t you have the Yemeni government arrest the American citizen and send him back to America to face either a military trial or a trial by jury?
We know the mainstream media is not going to ask the President why General Electric and Apple Computer Inc. pays less than 5 percent taxes every years on billions of dollars in profits but you figure they would get the President on record to an issue that they normally would care about.
These idiots whine and cry about torture, they whine and cry about waterboarding, yet they have no problem with Obama signing a kill list that authorizes the death by drone of American citizens, no problem.
With writers like Andrew Jacobs of the New York Times, it is no wonder that the dictator who probably killed the most humans of any leader during his reign, Mao Zedong or Mao Tse-Tung, estimates range from 40 to 70 million Chinese dead, has received light treatment in most university history departments. This Jacobs character in his latest NY Times piece entitled, “China’s Xi Jinping Faces Problem of Rural Poverty” basically white washes Mao’s knowledge and role in what amounted to a forced starvation of many Chinese villagers and the decision by Mao and his underlings to do nothing for years to change policies in order to end the suffering.
This is what Andrew Jacobs wrote:
Mao’s choreographed rural tours were less successful, in part because the officials who arranged them often shielded him from peasant suffering, most notably during a famine, the result of an ill-conceived industrialization push, that began in the late 1950s and killed tens of millions.
Does anyone, an editor, the actual writer of this piece think to put their words into historical context, I mean “an ill-conceived industrialization push”, seriously, that’s it, that is all you have to write about Mao’s famine, in addition the writer implies that Mao had no idea of the suffering, that he was shielded from that knowledge and the negative effects of his ill-conceived industrialization push.
Perhaps by adding some context, by writing about forced starvations, by writing about the killing of farmers that did not go along with Mao’s directed agricultural collectivization, by writing about the fact that in the face of millions of deaths, Mao and his communist cadres, did nothing for years, which resulted in more millions of deaths. Perhaps Andrew Jacobs could provide a sentence or two into the fact that China has kept these facts hidden from the public. And then perhaps this would explain why the farmer at the beginning of this article, shouts with glee and compares the current President to his beloved Mao.
And it wouldn’t hurt Andrew Jacobs, when bringing up the Cultural Revolution, later in the article, to give a sentence or two about what that in fact was, a different sort of murder imposed by Mao, a murder of intellectuals including many Chinese professors in an attempt to ensure complete loyalty to Mao and the hard line Communists.
War69.com will highlight once again the only words that Andrew Jacobs used to describe Mao’s Famine, “An Ill-Conceived Industrialization Push”. Now compare that with one fact from Frank Dikotter’s heavily researched book:
Not all deaths during the Great Leap were from starvation. Frank Dikötter estimates that at least 2.5 million people were beaten or tortured to death and 1 to 3 million committed suicide.
Now you understand why China gets away with human rights abuses so easily, the propaganda is not just from the People’s Republic of China, it extends out to Brian Williams and the mainstream media’s lack of a focus on negative China stories and it comes full circle in articles like this one from Andrew Jacobs of the NY Times.
And a reminder, this is from a book review in the NY Times about Mao’s famine:
Unlike the horrors of the Soviet gulag or the Holocaust, what happened in China during the Great Leap Forward has received little attention from the larger world, “even though it is one of the worst catastrophes in twentieth-century history,” writes Ms. Zhou, an assistant professor of history at the University of Hong Kong, in the introduction to “The Great Famine in China, 1958-1962.”
Ms. Zhou and a growing number of Chinese — and some Western — scholars believe the Great Leap Forward, Mao’s campaign of breakneck industrialization and agricultural collectivization, resulted in the deaths of perhaps 45 million people, mostly in the countryside. People died from a combination of starvation, overwork and violence in the quest for a perfect Communist society.
The Punchline & Savior of America was Al Gore according to Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States. Ultimate Comedic Twist Al Gore is our JFK, if only he was elected in 2000 America would be a Peaceful Utopia according to Stone and Showtime but Al Gore sold his Green Soul for the Green Dollars of Al Jazeera and their Oil backed takeover of Gore’s Current TV.
Jesus Oliver Stone must still be stoned on acid/heroin/marijuana cocktails as he just offered up a Sixth Sense shock ending to his Untold History of the United States. After watching Episode 8 or was it Episode 9 War69.com could not believe the punchline, seriously does Oliver Stone believe it, if so his brain is truly fried. Showtime and Oliver Stone actually want you to believe that Al Gore is our modern day JFK savior, Stone falsely believes that if JFK lived the Vietnam War never would have taken place and now he is trying to propagate that if Al Gore was elected in 2000, America would be a Peaceful Utopia, we are talking about the ultimate inside establishment figure, Al Gore but it gets better, just as the episode was airing, Al Gore sells his TV network, Current TV to the oil sheiks of Qatar that run the America hating Al-Jazeera network, the so called global warming and green spokesman, Al Gore, sells out to Big Oil for 100 million dollars and this is supposed to be America’s savior according to Oliver Stone.
Go sell that nonsense to your buddy Chavez and Castro. Yes that’s right, Oliver Stone who makes movies that attack the power structure, who champions the little guy, sucks up and kisses the asses of the biggest dictators of the world, Chavez and Castro, the ultimate hypocrisy, if you are going to be against America and the corporate power structure, War69.com digs it man but at least go all the way and be against all power structures, right, left, and center, but when you kiss Chavez’s ass and you kiss Castro’s murdering ass, you are proven to be the phony liar that you are.
The Lies & Hypocrisy of Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States : Showtime Propaganda, Distortions, Quotes out of Context, Moral Equivocations. Where to begin with Oliver Stone’s morally bankrupt retelling of history through the eyes of Stone’s communist/socialist sympathetic world view. Along with his PhD partner fellow Marxist sympathizer Peter Kuznick they’ve done a pretty good job of distorting history with quotes out of context, moral equivocations between the United States leaders and mass murdering dictators of Stalin and Mao and Castro’s ilk.
Of course Stone defends his treatment of Stalin saying he does report in the documentary of Stalin’s crimes. True but when you listen to how he reports them, you’ll see how this Showtime propaganda piece has whitewashed the history to give Stalin reasons for his barbarism or glossing over the murders or stating the United States instigated the Soviet Union’s crimes against humanity and territorial expansion and aggression.
War69.com will dig into a particular episode to highlight the glaring mischaracterizations and outright lies Oliver Stone propagates in this so called documentary. But it will be striking to the viewer how time and time again in Stone’s narration, he utters one statement completely hypocritical to the previous statement. It was as if Stone was stoned while writing or voicing the narration. If you don’t do any research, simply listen to Stone’s narration, you see how poorly executed this piece of propaganda was delivered by Stone. You’ll also see how Stone will take quotes from the same leader and when they suit Stone and Kuznick’s world view, they are lauded, when the same leader’s quote is against communism and the Soviet Union, that quote is denigrated. In addition Stone will take a single quote, a single sentence from a U.S. President or Winston Churchill and proclaim it as if that leader never uttered anything contradictory, never updated the quote as he or she got older, never had conflicting quotes as to the specific contexts of history; leaders that have thousands of pages of speeches, diaries, books, and yet Stone defines them by his select quotes that defend his point of view.
You’ll also see how Stone takes the word of dictators like Joseph Stalin, when in a previous segment he quickly stated that Stalin was extremely paranoid, yet his supposed quotes offering trust and non aggression are to be taken at face value. Every single act or quote by the Soviet Union is to be trusted and when they do act out as in the invasion of Hungary, it is always because of the instigation of the United States. And of course Stone shows no quotes from Soviet leaders threatening America in any way, Stone acts as if we had no right to build up our military to defend ourselves from the Communist threat.
And one has to love Oliver Stone’s amateur psychoanalysis of U.S. Presidents like Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan. Stone will remark about a Western leaders height or lack thereof, talk about them being bullied as a child or dressed up as a girl by their parents. Yet he offers no such look into the backgrounds or the short stature of Stalin and the psychological underpinnings of Mao. Nah, murder millions and Stone never looks into your psychological framework.
At one point Oliver Stone compares the Soviet Union and Joseph Stalin’s view of Poland in the same way the United States views Mexico and Canada, as regions that need to be watched because of a potential invasion. This specious equivocation is laughable considering how many Polish people the Soviets killed or deported to work camps before the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Stone acts as if Stalin held nothing against Poland, simply was concerned with the fact that it was a border country that could be used as a staging point for invasion. When the complete opposite has been proven by legitimate scholars. That after the Nazi-Soviet non aggression pact was signed, the Soviets sought to stamp out Polish history and erase the entire culture.
Do you believe Oliver Stone when he says the rapes of German women ended once Stalin found out about them and ordered them to cease when Stalin himself ordered the killing or deportations of thousands of Soviet troops who made the mistake of being captured by German soldiers and were POW’s, yes folks if you were a Soviet troop that had the misfortune to survive WWII as a POW there was a pretty good chance you were not to be trusted by your dear leader Stalin and you would die in a Soviet gulag. Yes we are supposed to believe in the truth, compassion, and peacefulness of Stalin’s Russia.
We are supposed to believe Oliver Stone’s assertion that the Soviet Union’s post WWII domination of Eastern Europe was all in reaction to the United States interventions in countries like Greece and Italy when in fact that the Soviet-Nazi Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact already sliced and diced Eastern Europe into the Soviet Union’s hands before WWII ever started. It cut Poland in half and Stalin began murdering, arresting, staging elections, and gutting a culture. It offered up Finland, Estonia, and Latvia to the Soviets. Parts of Romania and most of Lithuania would be given to Stalin and the Soviet Union. When Finland did not cooperate, Stalin and the Soviet Union communists invaded Finland. Soviet troops then attacked Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. No mention of this from Oliver Stone. The most damning fact of history that goes against the essence of his documentary. The Soviet Union had a history of territorial expansion, of the outright murder of innocent civilians, of the forced deportation of innocent civilians in these countries to Soviet gulags and work camps, of the looting and gutting of a political structure. Given this history thank goodness Harry Truman did not trust the Soviets. But Oliver Stone will not even mention the facts.
According to Oliver Stone, Stalin and the Communists are the good guys, the United States are the bad guys. Sorry Oliver unlike your conspiracy theories about the U.S. training death squads etc. etc., the blood is on the hands of Soviet troops, actual murders, triggers pulled by the Soviets, orders sent down from Stalin and his comrades, death, destruction, famines caused by the collectivization of farms which you fail to mention in Oliver Stone’s False History of the United States.
Now War69.com will show some of the hypocritical and contradictory narrations of Oliver Stone from Episode 4: The Cold War 1945-1950:
Narration by Oliver Stone:
First some highlights: Stone mentions the U.S. dropping in dissidents via parachutes into Ukraine to foment a revolution but never mentions the millions of Ukraine citizens that dies since 1932 because of Stalin’s forced collectivization of the entire Ukraine farming industry.
Stone blames the Soviet inspired Communist Coup d’etat of Czechoslovakia in 1948 on the Marshall Plan but never mentions the Soviet archives that show that Stalin did not believe the communist party could win a parliamentary election in Czechoslovakia after the party lost in Italy and France and believed force had to be used.
Stone plays a quote from Stalin in which Stalin tells Tito the Communist dictator in Yugoslavia not to fight the United States in Greece. Stone uses this quote to assert that Stalin was not looking for expansion, he was honoring his WWII treaty agreements but if you listen to the quote that Stone uses, Stalin’s stated rationale is that he doesn’t think the U.S. can be defeated in Greece, that they are too strong a country to mess with so it is not worth the trouble. In addition Stone does not say anything about Tito truly pissing off Stalin by running an independent economy and not using one controlled by the Soviet Union. Stone also asserts that the U.S. tried to lump Tito in with the Soviet Union after their split as one big red menace. But Stone fails to mention that Tito accepted money from the U.S. Marshall Plan. Stone also doesn’t mention that the only successful independent split from the Soviet Union was met with Stalin trying multiple assassination attempts of Tito.
Stone mentions Mao Tse Tung’s revolutionary takeover of China in 1949, while Stone correctly labels the Chinese Nationalist Party that Mao defeats as corrupt, Stone never attributes a single murder to a man that eventually was responsible for between 30 and 50 million deaths either through forced starvation, direct murders especially during the Cultural Revolution, or indifference to famines caused by disastrous farming policies enacted by Mao.
Stone who during the documentary tries to make it sound like Stalin and the Soviet Union had no ambition to spread communism throughout the world, states that the Soviets installed the dictator of North Korea Kim Il-Sung, certainly this goes against Stone’s thesis and then once again the blames the United States. Stone states that Stalin ordered Il-Sung’s North Korea to invade South Korea but he did it out of anger because of the U.S. helping to build up Stalin’s rival Japan. You see Stone’s logic, we try to build up Western Europe and Germany’s economy as to avoid another World War and another Hitler and that gives Stalin the right to blockade West Berlin and build the Berlin Wall. The U.S. builds up Japan’s economy to avoid history repeating itself and that gives Stalin the right to invade South Korea. Stone is clearly out of whack mentally.
The Benghazi General Petraeus Lie & Myth That Reference to Terrorism was removed to not “Tip Off” Suspected Terrorists, Bogus/Lie/Coverup/Scam/Politics, Proof: Obama White House Announced Bin Laden Death/Raid Minutes after it Happened,Tipped Off Pakistani’s, Tipped Off Al Qaeda, Tipped Off Al-Zawahiri.
Does General Petraeus and the Obama administration think we have short memories. This idea and obvious lie floated by Petraeus that the CIA removed the word “terrorism” so as to not “Tip Off” the suspected terrorists is laughable:
Former CIA Director David H. Petraeus told lawmakers Friday that classified intelligence showed the deadly raid on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was a terrorist attack, but that the administration withheld the suspected role of specific al-Qaeda affiliates to avoid tipping off the terrorist groups.
The United States was sitting on the most valuable intelligence/information in the world when it comes to the war on terror against Al Qaeda. It was May 2, 2011 and a group of Navy Seals just completed a raid on Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound in which he was killed. What does Barack Obama decide to do, immediately announce Bin Laden’s death in a televised press conference at the White House. Obama Tipped OFF Everybody, He Tipped off the Pakistani’s, He Tipped off Al Qaeda, He Tipped off Al-Zawahiri.
Yes the information eventually would have leaked out but every hour, every minute that the U.S. could have kept Bin Laden’s death out of the media was a minute, was an hour that they could have listened in on the chatter of electronic communications and learned who in the Pakistani military was talking about the death of Bin Laden, who were they calling, was anybody in upper levels of Pakistani government talking about a raid on Bin Laden’s compound, any knowledge would have indicted the official that was talking, did they call Al-Zawahiri and alert him to get out of his protected Pakistani safe house, were operatives of Al-Qaeda calling each other to send out the news and alerts, did they mention any ongoing operations or movement of suspects, the amount of chatter could have been legendary because we are talking about the moments when the raid/murder goes down, before it becomes world wide news, those are the scary moments for Al-Qaeda, the moments when you might slip up and communicate, those are the moments when the mere mention of Bin Laden’s death would implicate a Pakistani official.
Not to mention the fact that the U.S. could have delayed the announcement of Bin Laden’s death to give them precious time to sift through the intelligence they took from Bin Laden’s compound. Any address they found could have been possibly used to find more high level Al Qaeda operatives.
Yet the always political Obama administration would never steal one second of Obama glory for the greater good of the nation, so They Tipped Off The World About Bin Laden’s Death and ruined any potential Pakistani/Al Qaeda chatter/movement. President OBama had to be the big man on campus, the news had to be broken by him and him alone. Hey he probably got reelected on that night, good for him but now don’t tell the American public that you removed any link to terrorism in the Benghazi attack because you were worried about tipping off the terrorist groups, bullshit, you removed it because you didn’t want anything jeopardizing Obama’s reelection.
And by the way, the terrorists were posing for the cameras after they fired on the Benghazi compound, they were boasting about killing Americans, not in hiding, and still at large to this day.
UPDATE: The only member of the media I can find that actually raised this issue was Jonah Goldberg, Why the hurry to gloat about Bin Laden?
President Obama’s rush to break the news of the Al Qaeda leader’s death no doubt cost the U.S. a valuable intelligence edge.:
For a week people have been asking, “Why won’t the president release Osama bin Laden’s photo?” That’s the wrong question. We should be asking, “Why was Barack Obama in such a hurry to tell us Bin Laden was dead?”
“It’s going to be great even if only 10% of it is actionable,” a government official told Politico’s Mike Allen.
I’m no expert on such matters — though I’ve talked to several about this — but even a casual World War II buff can understand that the shelf life of actionable intelligence would be extended if we hadn’t told the whole world, and Al Qaeda in particular, that we had it.
It’s a bit like racing to the microphones to announce you’ve stolen the other team’s playbook even before you’ve had a chance to use the information in the big game.
But that’s exactly what President Obama did. He raced to spill the beans. The man couldn’t even wait until morning. At just after 9:45 p.m., the White House communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, informed the media: “POTUS to address the nation tonight at 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time.”
Yes, killing Osama bin Laden is a big secret that would be hard to keep for long. Certainly Pakistan would grow agitated if we simply said nothing about the incursion, though sweating the Janus-faced Pakistanis with silence for a couple of days might yield its own intelligence rewards. In other words, even waiting 24 hours might generate some interesting “chatter.” The Pakistanis working with Al Qaeda certainly would have been the first to spread the news that Bin Laden was dead or captured.
But the real treasure trove would be that “college library” of intelligence. And while reports are pouring out from a gloating White House that’s leaking like the Titanic in its final hours, one can only assume our analysts have barely begun to exploit the data.
Couldn’t they have at least tried to give the CIA a week, a day, even a few more hours to look at it all before letting Ayman Zawahiri and the rest of Al Qaeda know about it? Why give him the slightest head start to go even further underground?
UPDATE 2: And one other reference found here:
The film charges that Team Obama gave away too much information about the mission and that, in any case, they should have waited several days before announcing that Osama was dead, in order to allow the exploitation of any intelligence gained on the raid and to allow our forces to capitalize on the confusion in al Qaeda while they scrambled to figure out what happened.
And to counter some of the idiot commenters on that above site that mention the fact the explosions at the compound were tweeted by an Abottabad resident, that is not the key, the key is if any Pakistani mentions Bin Laden’s name in reference to the compound before it becomes world wide news, then we have proof that Pakistan hid Bin Laden, but an intelligent commenter points that out:

@David M: Lemme spell it out for you, Davie. I’ll even use small words.
We take out Bin Laden. Then we say nothing, but listen very carefully. The first few people who we overhear saying “oh, crap, that’s where Bin Laden was!” knew where he was, and are now good targets for killing, catching, or watching very closely. And they lead us to more people who are such good targets.
Total time? A day or two, a week at most.
OK, that was a bunch of one- and two-syllable words, with a single three-syllable word in there that shouldn’t be too hard for you to figure out. Get it now?
Or do you need Dora The Explorer to hold your hand?
Act of Desperation: Obama Cries at Final 2012 Rally in Iowa, Fake Tears, Crocodile Tears, Hillary Tears:
DES MOINES, Iowa – At one point even feeling the need to wipe a tear from his eye, President Obama ended his presidential campaign Monday night with an emotional appeal to voters in the state that started it all, asking Iowans to help him finish what he started four years ago.
A desperate act, a crying ploy, A Boehner male ego collapse, a Hillary Clinton New Hampshire con job to gain sympathy and your vote, or Obama knowing he will lose and going out like a feckless wimp?
Mark of Stupidity: Mike Lupica contradicts himself within the same article entitled, “Election Day Arrives: It Will Be Fright Night If Mitt Romney Wins”. Lupica contradicts himself in the next paragraph. Why this tool even deigns to comment on politics is beyond War69.com. It is no wonder that Lupica doesn’t allow comments to be posted about his articles on the NY Daily News website because Lupica illustrates his lack of intelligence and his sycophantic worship of Obama with the following two paragraphs:
This doesn’t mean Barack Obama has been a great President, because he hasn’t, or that he has been a great candidate, because he hasn’t been that, either, has offered no compelling answer to the best question Romney has asked, about why anybody should think that the next four years will be better than the last four.
When people go to the polls Tuesday, there will be a reckoning about that, because at least Obama’s record is right there for everybody to see, at least he has been pretty clear about his vision for the future, whether you agree with that vision, or with the people who have made him out to be some kind of dirty America-hater.
Lupica states that Obama has offered no compelling answer to how his second term will differ from his first term yet in the next paragraph Lupica states that Obama has been pretty clear about his vision for the future. Got that? Mike Lupica is a world class idiot and Obama shill.
War On Women: Ex-Drug Dealer Jay-Z Substitutes “Mitt” for “Bitch”, Women Hating Rapper, “Got 99 Problems But a Bitch/Mitt Ain’t One” Hope and Change/Forward Indeed:
“I changed this one up, I have to do it, I’m sorry. I didn’t get clearance from the Secret Service so if they come tackle me y’all save me,” Jay-Z said onstage before Obama’s speech. “I didn’t get that vetted, so let’s do that real fast before they come snatch me off this stage.”
This rapper thug that promotes violence against women, promotes gang behavior, promotes his drug dealing past, a horrible role model for the African American community is too stupid to know he is at an Obama rally not a Romney rally because slander against “Mitt” happens at every Obama rally, from Barack Obama himself, so why would the secret service want to tackle you.
But this is why War69.com loves America, because an unintelligent thug can make millions by stringing together nursery rhymes based on a vocabulary that is less than 100 words, brilliant, capitalism at its finest.
Joe Biden told by his handlers to prepare for a permanent vacation:
“You need to take a vacation!” the host told the vice president of the United States.
“Well, I’m going to take a vacation about about three days after this election is over,” Biden revealed. “That’s what they told me.”
Can’t wait to see this useless tool voted out of office on Tuesday November 6, 2012.
