Talking Pointers – Dear Leader Obama Assembles Meeting of msNBC Media to Push Propaganda…

Control of the media is essential to framing the propaganda.  Today, unknown to the general public because it was hidden from schedule, President Obama met with progressive media entities to receive their talking points on how to sell his position.

However, their arrival at the White House was spotted.

MSNBC-primetimePRAVDA - President Obama met with a litany of liberal media personalities on Tuesday to push his tax cut message. Spotted filing into the West Wing on Tuesday were Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton.

The meeting was not on the president’s public schedule and White House officials initially declined to comment on the meeting.

They later issued a statement to POLITICO: “This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction,” spokesman Josh Earnest said.

    I refuse to pay any attention to this. I am resigned to dealing with the reality of the folly. I may even invest in Tulips.

  3. The “balanced approach” is apparently that he will keep increasing spending, and we need to find a way to “balance” that with increases in revenue, which will come from taxing “The Rich(TM)” & “Evil Corporations(TM)” and from converting unicorn poop into 24K gold bars.

    As in the Dutch Tulip Craze? What am I missing? Admittedly slow on the uptake at times.

      Yes…You got it. History repeats itself. After all we are still just humans. Not many are aware of the Tulip craze.

      Tulip mania or tulipomania (Dutch names include: tulpenmanie, tulpomanie, tulpenwoede, tulpengekte and bollengekte) was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed.[2] By 1636 the tulip bulb became the fourth leading export product of the Netherlands – after gin, herring and cheese. The price of tulips skyrocketed because of speculation in tulip futures among people who never saw the bulbs. Many men made and lost fortunes overnight, to the consternation of Calvinists elites who abhorred this artificial frenzy that denied the virtues of moderation, discretion and genuine work.[3]
      At the peak of tulip mania, in February 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman. It is generally considered the first recorded speculative bubble (or economic bubble),[4] although some researchers have noted that the Kipper- und Wipperzeit episode in 1619–22, a Europe-wide chain of debasement of the metal content of coins to fund warfare, featured mania-like similarities to a bubble.[5] The term “tulip mania” is now often used metaphorically to refer to any large economic bubble (when asset prices deviate from intrinsic values).[6]
      The event was popularized in 1841 by the book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, written by British journalist Charles Mackay. According to Mackay, at one point 12 acres (5 ha) of land were offered for a Semper Augustus bulb.[7] Mackay claims that many such investors were ruined by the fall in prices, and Dutch commerce suffered a severe shock. Although Mackay’s book is a classic that is widely reprinted today, his account is sometimes contested. Some modern scholars feel that the mania was not quite as extraordinary as Mackay described. Some even argue that not enough price data remain, historically, to represent an all out tulip bulb bubble.[8][9]
      Research on the tulip mania is difficult because of the limited economic data from the 1630s—much of which comes from biased and anti-speculative sources.[10][11] Although these explanations are not generally accepted, some modern economists have proposed rational explanations, rather than a speculative mania, for the rise and fall in prices. For example, other flowers, such as the hyacinth, also had high prices with the flower’s introduction, which immediately fell, and fell dramatically. The high asset prices may also have been driven by expectations of a parliamentary decree that contracts could be voided for a small cost—thus lowering the risk to buyers.

    They don’t want to increase taxes on the middle class because, like good parasites, they want to save a prospective host for later. Not, thanks to the POtuS, there’s a hell of a lot of middle class left. Note that Fannie and Freddie have said they’ll suspend evictions for the holiday season but the oustings will begin again on 2 January. They say they want to decrease stress on those about to be booted during the holiday season – hey kiddies, how do you spell ‘disingenuous’? The POtuS’s Christmas gift to the middle class.

    Raising taxes on millionaires to fund all and sundry is a fool’s errand. If they can pay accountants to help them avoid taxes at 35%, they can pay accountants to help them avoid taxes at 40% just as easily. But I guess it sounds pretty when Warren Buffett says he should pay more (and won’t even pay the billion or so he already owes).

    I knew of Ed Schultz ten years ago or so when he was a complete nobody in ND, and when he finally went to the national stage, the majority of normal citizens there just rolled their eyes and heaved a sigh of relief.

    He’s still a nobody. Unfortunately, now he’s a useful nobody to the other nobody that threatens the existence of our nation, Barack Hussein Obama.

    This article is very unfair to Pravda who has recently been providing much more insightful commentary about the sorry USA election and political situation than our MSM.
