A new breed of Obamaphobes: Tornado truthers

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama

Considering the feverish zeal with which Obama-haters are pushing their conspiracy theories these days, I guess THIS KIND OF THING was inevitable:

If our planet’s increasingly extreme weather isn’t caused by man-made climate change, then it stands to reason that it’s actually caused by man-made supervillains using government technology to take American Freedoms with superstorms like Monday’s mile-wide monster tornadoes.

If that makes no sense at all, it’s because the Powers That Be don’t want you know the real truth about Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy and this week’s devastating twisters that mowed down entire towns in Oklahoma.

The Tornado Truthers know these shocking weather events have nothing to do with the weather extremes climate scientists have long predicted for a planet rapidly heating from our civilization’s burning of fossil fuels and global industrial production of farting meat animals. Monster storms are caused by Barack Obama and his predecessors in the White House/New World Order, using powerful storm-making technology like the massive HAARP antenna farm in Alaska.

HAARP stands for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, which is an unclassified “ionospheric research program” based at a research station on Air Force property in the remote Alaskan wilderness. The stated goal of HAARP is to study the ionosphere and how the spectrum of radio waves works within these upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. Because the Air Force and the Navy have particular interest in global communications from the bottom of the sea to suborbital space and beyond, HAARP is funded by the Pentagon and its mad-scientist division, DARPA. The remoteness of the massive collection of transmission antennas and the involvement of secretive/weird defense researchers has led to the obvious conclusion that HAARP is actually a Doctor Doom/Loki machine for torturing humanity into further submission.

    And here we all thought it was Ming the Merciless on planet Mongo. Thanks for clearing this up Pat.

    If you have ever been to Disney in Orlando Florida they have a town called luney tunes…that’s where these nutjobs belong….good God we have some scary people on this planet…!

    Pat, you got to give us more than one nut job.
    What do we have like 10 morons who follow this guy?

  4. Robert

    How about a little truth from the DOJ about their failure to go after the big banks for the fraud they perpetuated on the world? Even GHWB and GWB went after the cons during their administration between the S and L and Enron / Qwest scandals, but not this DOJ or this President. Lots of people wondering why. Nobody of any stature has been arrested and prosecuted. And now its coming out the reason the DOJ has been giving is a total fabrication.

    Pat, in your unabashed liberal perspective, where do you weigh in on this travesty?

    I think one Obama weakness has been from the start is Eric Holder. This guy hasn’t went after any of those that helped destroy our economy. why are these guys so afraid to admit a mistake. Im sure Mr.Holder is a fine attorney just not a good AG.

  6. Robert

    He’s a fine attorney for the big monied banks. From what I’ve read and heard, especially from Mike Pappatonia on Ring of Fire radio, the firm he worked for, Covington and Burling, were well know for their advocacy of the big monied banks. Obama knew exactly how this guy would error and that’s why he was chosen. Obama could replace him anytime if he wanted to. Eric is doing what he was put in place to do. And don’t forget Obama and his look forward view.

    Here’s some of Obama’s economic team. Let’s face it, we were hustled in 2008 and 2012. The democrats are just as in bed with big money as the repubs and they joust to see who can tempt big money to donate more to their party. We’ve been hustled. What’s so disgusting beyond that we the people are being sold out is how the republican base think this guy is a socialist commie, pinko… he’s a corporatists that gives the corps all they want while feigning some alignment with the people, but the republicans are so filled with hate they can’t and won’t see it… what are we defending when we support the dems anyway? I’m really tempted to stop voting in federal elections.

    * Larry Summers, Obama’s chief economic adviser, was paid $5.2 million for his part-time work for a massive hedge fund in 2008 alone. He also took in more than $2.7 million in fees for speaking engagement­­­­­­­­­­­­s at such places as Citigroup, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs — including one visit alone that netted him $135,000 from Goldman Sachs.

    * Michael Froman is deputy national security adviser for internatio­­­­­­­­­­­­n­a­l economic affairs. He made more than $7.4 million at Citigroup from January 2008 to January 2009, including a year-end bonus of $2.25 million that he received just days before coming to work at the White House — though well after he had already served in a key post in the transition­­­­­­­­­­­­. Froman was a senior executives at Citigroup’­­­­­­­­­­­­s Alternativ­­­­­­­­­­­­e Investment division, which “ran up hundreds of millions of dollars in losses [in 2008] on their esoteric collection of investment­­­­­­­­­­­­s­, including real estate funds and private highway constructi­­­­­­­­­­­­o­n projects, even as they collected seven-figu­­­­­­­­­­­­r­e salaries and bonuses.”

    * David A. Lipton, a presidential special assistant who also serves on both the national security and economic councils, made $1.5 million from Citigroup in 2008, managing its Global Country Risk group — another shining Citigroup success. He received a bonus in 2009, right around the time he started work at the White House, of $762,000

    * Jacob J. Lew, a deputy secretary of state, is another key player in internatio­­­­­­­­­­n­a­l economics. He, like Forman, was at top officer of Citigroup Alternativ­­­­­­­­­­e Investment­­­­­­­­­­s­, earning $1.1 million in 2008 – plus an as-yet undisclose­­­­­­­­­­d bonus in 2009.

    * Gene Sperling, a top adviser to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, in 2008 earned $887,727 from Goldman Sachs simply for providing “advice on charitable giving.” He also made $158,000 for speeches mostly to financial companies.

    * Lee Sachs, another top Geithner aide, “reported more than $3 million in salary from Mariner Investment Group, a New York hedge fund.” When he took his new job, he reported that he was still owed a bonus where the value was “not ascertaina­­­­­­­­­­b­l­e­.­”

    * Lewis Alexander, another top Geithner aide, is the former chief economist at Citigroup, for which he was paid $2.4 million in 2008 and the first few months of 2009.

    * Mark Patterson, Geithner’s chief of staff, was one of the top lobbyists at Goldman Sachs before joining the Obama campaign. He took in what seemed at first glance to be a relatively modest-by-­­­­­­­­­­G­o­l­d­m­a­­n­­-­­s­­t­­­a­n­d­a­­r­d­­s salary of $637,230 in 2008. It turns out that was only for three months’ work — he left Goldman in early April. Until then, his title had been vice president for government relations, and he acted as a lobbyist on a wide range of issues including tax treatment of corporate reorganiza­­­­­­­­­­t­i­o­n transactio­­­­­­­­­­n­s­, nonbinding shareholde­­­­­­­­­­r votes on executive compensati­­­­­­­­­­o­n­, and over-the-c­­­­­­­­­­o­u­n­t­e­r energy derivative­­­­­­­­­­s­.

    Don’t forget the head wrist slapper Lanny Breuer of the criminal division who quit to work for the banks. He couldn’t find enough evidence to prosecute a banker for jaywalking.

  9. Robert

    Yup, Lanny Breuer, the guy that stepped down from the DOJ after Frontline exposed him. Now he works for the very banks he was in charge of investigating. That is how corrupt our govt has become. And there’s nobody out there in our political system except for Elizabeth Warren, that has the guts to lead a “have you no shame moment”. Obama never was the candidate he posed as being. I’m so disappointed.

    Frontline has done great expose’s, but most people don’t watch them. Many would rather listen to the garbage on Fox because it titillates their prejudices and phobias. (I’m amazed at how many business’s have Fox News on their tv’s in the waiting room areas.)

    The link to the Frontline story, The Untouchables, shows just how much evidence is out there to prosecute big names in big banks, but it will never happen. Rules and the letter of the law is just for us little people.

  10. Neftali

    So let me get this straight. You liberals want people in charge of the US Treasury that have no experience in the private sector of the financial world? Good luck with that. Then again, you managed to find a Supreme Court Justice (Kagan) and a President with no private sector experience, so I suppose anything is possible. Say!! Perhaps we’re on to something. Perhaps we can have everyone in the Obama administration not have any private sector experience. What a grand liberal utopia!!

    Oh, and Brian. Its “Looney Tunes.” Not “luney.”

  11. Robert

    Neftali, what are you babbling about? You’re blinded by your hatred. Romney would have been no different. He would error in favor of who paid the republican party the most just like the dems. The only difference in the parties is how they excite their base and the red meat issues they throw at them. Are you that blinded by your partisanship to not see that?

  12. Brian Opsahl

    Thanks Nef…thats correct..!

    Justice Kagan has no expearience….really..?
    but yet Scalia spends the day hunting with Cheney right before a big dicision and brags about his anti-liberal stances….hhhmm

  13. Craig Knauss

    Nef,

    “…you managed to find a Supreme Court Justice (Kagan) and a President with no private sector experience….” LOL

    Another great comment from you. What’s private sector experience have to do with it? Did you vote for McCain? How much did he have? Did you vote for GWB? How many private sector business failures did he have? Would you have voted for Donald Trump? How many business failures did he have? Would either of them have made an acceptable Justice for you? At least they graduated from law school which puts them one up on GWB or The Donald. And way, way. way above your knowledge level.

  14. Craig Knauss

    Robert,

    I don’t recall too much being done to the Enron criminals. What little prosecution there was occurred long after the fact. On the other hand, the few people I knew that worked for Enron got their “punishment” (lost job, lost pension) right away.

  15. Robert

    Kenny Boy Lay and Jeffry Skilling got prison sentences if I recall correctly. That was more than Obama’s DOJ… Lay is dead and Skilling is seeking an early out last I heard.

  16. Neftali

    Robert – I would fully expect and encourage Romney to hire people with experience in the banking industry to his administration. I’m not the one upset by such people, you are.

    Craig – I was no huge fan of McCain, but he was better than the alternative. Plus, private sector failures are better than zero private sector experience. What’s so bad about failure? You learn from failure. Colonel Sanders declared bankruptsy something like 7 times because finding a product that made him rich. President Lincoln lost more elections than he won in his career. Failure is not necessarily a bad thing. I know in liberal la-la land you want to give everyone a ribbon for first place because you hate competition and capitalism, but the real world doesn’t work like that, son. GWB and Trump had more success than failures in their business ventures. I’m actually surprised you don’t know that. I actually thought you were smarter than that. guess I was wrong. I, of course, wouldn’t dream of having GWB or Trump be a Supreme Court Justice, you’re just being absurd. I do, however, expect any Supreme Justice to have experience at least as a private council, prosecutor, or as a circuit court judge, none of which Kagan had. (She was nominated to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, but never actually served.)

    As far as Enron goes, Kenneth Lay was convicted of six counts of securities and wire fraud, and he was subject to a maximum total sentence of 45 years in prison However, he died before sentencing was scheduled. All told, sixteen people pleaded guilty for crimes committed at the company, and five others, including four former Merrill Lynch employees, were found guilty. Kenneth Rice, the former chief of Enron Corp.’s high-speed Internet unit, received a 27-month sentence.

    Brian – Scalia also has a very close personal relationship with Justice Ginsburg. Think that affects his decisions? Are Supreme Court Justices not supposed to have a life outside of court? Or is there a list of people that Supreme Court Justices are “allowed” to hang out with, and others there are not? You gets to make those decisions? You?

    I think private sector experience should have something to do with it.

    The only way that our economy is going to thrive is if we have cooperation between the job creators and the regulators. An increasingly adversarial relationship may make a left winger feel better, but it isn’t going to create jobs.

    The classic example is the ridiculuous grilling that Tim Cook was subjected to earlier in the week in Congress. No tax laws were broken and yet he was being questioned like he was a criminal. What a joke! He only followed the ridiculously complicated tax code that Congress put in place.

    The best hospital administrators I have worked with have come from a clinical backround (nurses,physicians etc). They understand what it takes to deliver care and can much more effectively supply the tools and run an administration that helps that to happen.

  18. Robert

    Have we ever had a person from industry leading the country? Haven’t they all come from the political field or of lately, the banking fields? At least in modern times? Seem to work fine before. When we entered into the industrial age, was there some industrialist that became president. Pardon my ignorance if there was.

  19. Robert: Two 20th century presidents who had business experience, George W. Bush and Herbert Hoover, are ranked among the worst we’ve ever had.

    Some of the early presidents — Washington, Adams and Jefferson, to cite three examples — had agricultural businesses, but that’s not the same as today’s definition of “business experience” in the White House.

    Various other presidents were lawyers in the private sector, but that, too, isn’t the same as being a business executive.

    Harry Truman ran a business, but it failed. However, he’s now ranked among the 10 best presidents.

  20. expdoc

    Agricultural business in the time of the early presidents is the same type of business experience that I am talking about. It was the business of the day.

    I still think some form of term limits would prevent alot of the shenanigans that we are witnessing with modern politicians.

  21. Robert

    expdoc, What has Obama done that wasn’t first tested for approval by the corps he pursued it for? Obamacare is something the insurance providers wanted. It wasn’t something he sat and thought up and jotted down. He’s a shill to bring the left along while he does the business of the corporations. You don’t see that?

    You did notice that the Supreme Court had no problem with Obamacare?

  22. We have term limits, exdoc. No politician can stay in office longer than voters want them to.

    And as for “the business of the day”, you should note that our current economy is based largely on delivery of services as opposed to goods. So it is natural that doctors (Pauls), lawyers (Obama, GWBush), consultants, investors, clergy, actors, athletes, etc., all carry about the same business cred as a self-titled “businessman” like Ron Johnson (who actually inherited his station and wealth, which he managed poorly).

    Career politicos (Ryan, Biden, McCain, GHBush) are the only true business novices I see.

    Luke,

    What was the name of the law firm that Obama ran so succesfully for all those years?

    I want to give them a call, but Dewey, Cheatem and Howe says he never worked there. :)

    By the way, read this about Ron Johnson and explain your standard talking point comment about Ron Johnson and his success or lack thereof.

    Sendek says that Bemis now constitutes less than 10 percent of PACUR’s business. The Investext numbers imply more than that, but in any case, Sendek says, “they would still be viable without it.”

    But it wasn’t always that way.

    According to Johnson’s campaign bio, “With the help and dedication of the fine people Ron had the privilege of working with, PACUR has grown from a company supplying a single customer to the largest producer in the world of a specialty plastic used in medical device packaging and high tech printing applications.”

    That single customer? Bemis. Or, rather, the company that became Bemis according to The Northwesterner.

    Sendek says that in the years since, PACUR has done business with about 1700 clients in 25 countries.

    Broadly speaking, Johnson’s company extrudes rolls of rigid polyester and sells those rolls to Bemis, which further converts them and sells them all to medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies

  24. Craig Knauss

    Nef,

    You make a lot of assumptions about me and most, if not all, of them are total BS. Maybe that’s because it’s YOU that’s really not very smart. I joined the workforce in 1967. I’ve been a licensed professional since 1974. I registered to vote in 1969 and have voted ever since. While I did work in federal government (DOD) for 11 years, I worked in the private sector for 27 years. I am not a socialist, communist or even remotely far-left, except in the feeble minds of rightwing idiots, Birchers, Neo-Nazis, Klan, etc. You say I “…hate competition and capitalism…” which proves you’re full of crap. I believe in both of them. But I also know that we need some controls because big business is in it for money. Period. And there are some government functions business can’t or won’t do, such as build the Interstate Highway System or Hoover Dam or Mississippi River levees.
    And while you obviously think that multiple business failures grooms one for success (didn’t work for GWB, did it?), I frequently see the same “mistake” being made repeatedly, which indicates a pretty flat learning curve. Did Col. Sanders fail 7 times doing the same thing? No. He failed at different concepts which broadened his knowledge. And he didn’t run for president either. And how many prominent Republicans lacked private sector experience before running for office? What was McCain’s? Or former Illinois governor Big Jim Thompson’s? (Hint: U.S. Attorney) And FYI, the U of Chicago, where Obama taught, is a PRIVATE university. Just thought you should know that. And like I said, any prosecutions for Enron were well after the fact. And course you know the Enron failure wasn’t due to incompetence. It was due to out and out FRAUD. Just a big shell game. Division A sold equipment to Division B. Division A recorded it as revenue. Division B recorded it as a business expense. However, Division A and Division B were part of the same company. Also, the Enron directors were encouraging employees to buy Enron stock right up to the day they declared bankruptcy. However, the directors were dumping their stock as fast as they could. Nothing but outright FRAUD.

    BTW, was Neil Bush ever prosecuted for his involvement in the Silverado S&L failure? I’ve never heard that he was even investigated. Guess it helps when Daddy is president.
