Barack Obama and his psychiatrist!


Presidential Psychotherapy

According to sources the President apparently has an issue with every single one of the over 300 million Americans.

He is, however, working hard to overcome these feelings and once again regain his focus on his more important presidential endeavors!

This is according to a report at The Onion concerning the fact that the President is in therapy in order to get past his ‘complaints and grievances’ against every American man, woman and child.

The President, one can be very sure, is anxious to rid himself of this heavy burden so that he can get back to what appears to be his greatest second-term concern which is getting his golf handicap down to what he considers to be acceptable levels!

Now if he could only rid himself of some of those other pesky items on his to-do list, such as Syria using chemical weapons, civil war in Egypt and the stumbling US economy.

Fortunately though, at least for him, the President seems quite proficient at putting those ‘crises’ squarely on the back burner.

From The Onion:

Psychiatrist Patiently Listens To Obama Complain About Every Single American

‘Carefully jotting down notes as the two sat in his small second-floor office on K Street, psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Eccleson patiently let President Barack Obama angrily voice his complaints and grievances about every single American in the nation, sources confirmed Tuesday.

While conceding that the president has “made some decent progress” over the course of several months of therapy, Eccleson told reporters that Obama still has many deep-seated issues with each of the 313 million members of the U.S. populace.

“This week we continued exploring Barack’s resentment about being constantly judged by others,” said Eccleson, noting the president’s reliance on unhealthy defense mechanisms to distance himself emotionally from the American public. “Again and again I hear things like, ‘No matter how hard I try, nothing is ever good enough for Seattle resident Bryan Harrison.’ But I keep stressing that, at the end of the day, Barack is a human being and can’t expect himself to be perfect.”

“A lot of his feelings of inadequacy—thinking that no matter how successful he is, he can’t live up to people’s expectations—stem from his relationship with his father,” Eccleson continued. “That’s also at the core of his trust issues with not only Bryan, but also Gail Shaughnessy, Eric Corker, Amy Bergin, and more or less the entire population of Worcester, MA…”‘

18 warning signs of a another global financial crisis!


From The Economic Collapse blog these are numbers one through nine with a link for ten through eighteen!

If you were a casual observer who simply looked at the headline unemployment numbers and the stock market you would likely be under the impression that all is well with the U.S. economy and by extension the global economy.

These eighteen statistics provide a deeper look at the facts that tell a much different story!

18 Signs That Global Financial Markets Are Entering A Horrifying Death Spiral

#1 The yield on 10 year U.S. Treasuries has risen for 5 of the past 6 days, and it briefly touched the 2.90% level on Monday.
#2 Rapidly rising interest rates are spooking investors and causing them to pull money out of bonds at a very rapid pace…
Investors have yanked nearly $20 billion from bond mutual funds and exchange traded funds so far in August. That’s the fourth highest pullback ever, according to TrimTabs data. In June, investors took out $69.1 billion — the highest on record.
#3 The sell-off of U.S. Treasuries is being led by foreigners.  In particular, China and Japan have been particularly aggressive in selling off bonds…
China and Japan led an exodus from U.S. Treasuries in June after the first signals the U.S. central bank was preparing to wind back its stimulus, with data showing they accounted for almost all of a record $40.8 billion of net foreign selling of Treasuries.
The sales were part of $66.9 billion of net sales by foreigners of long-term U.S. securities in June, a fifth straight month of outflows and the largest since August 2007, U.S. Treasury Department data showed on Thursday.
China, the largest foreign creditor, reduced its Treasury holdings to $1.2758 trillion, and Japan trimmed its holdings for a third straight month to $1.0834 trillion. Combined, they accounted for about $40 billion in net Treasury outflows.
#4 Thanks to rapidly rising bond yields, some of the largest exchange-traded bond funds are getting absolutely hammered right now…
• The $18 billion iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond fund (ticker: LQD) has fallen 7.94% since May 2, according to S&P Capital IQ. That’s including reinvested interest from the fund’s bond holdings.
• The 3.7 billion iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) has plunged 15.9% the same period. Longer-term bonds typically get hit harder when rates rise than shorter-term bonds. For example, the iShares Barclays 3-7 Year Treasury Bond fund (IEI) has fallen 3.2% since May 2.
• PowerShares Emerging Markets Sovereign Debt (PCY), which invests in government bonds issued in developing countries, has fallen 12.7%. The fund has $1.8 billion in assets.
#5 In recent weeks we have witnessed the largest cluster of Hindenburg Omens that we have seen since prior to the last financial crisis.
#6 George Soros has bet a tremendous amount of money that the S&P 500 is going to be heading down.
#7 At this point, the S&P 500 has fallen for 9 out of the last 11 trading days.
#8 Margin debt has spiked to extremely dangerous levels. This is a pattern that we also saw just before the last financial crash and just before the dotcom bubble burst…
The exuberant mood comes as margin debt on Wall Street hovers near $377 bn, just below its all-time high and well above peaks before the dotcom crash and the Lehman crisis.
“Investors have rarely been more levered than today,” said Deutsche Bank, warning that the spike in margin debt is a “red flag” and should be watched closely.

Watcher’s Council Nominations ‘Four Tickets to Paradise’ Edition! (Martha’s Vineyard Photos)


This edition of the Watcher’s Council including music and photos  is dedicated to President Obama who, along with the First Family, will be vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard!

So while the President tells us he understands the economic pain and struggles of the middle class he certainly doesn’t suffer through such pain and suffering himself.

And while no one can begrudge a President a vacation, even one who really doesn’t work very hard or seem to need or deserve one, you would think that common sense would say to cut back a little even if only for the perception value.

The only reason I can see for insisting on opulence is that the President’s words and rhetoric are only that and that he and the First Lady don’t really give a crap about the pain or perception of the middle class and know that the mainstream media will protect them anyway.

‘President Barack Obama and his family will travel to Martha’s Vineyard for eight days beginning on Aug. 10.

Architect Rick Sundberg, now of Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects, confirmed Monday that the Obamas will stay in a home that he redesigned. The $7.6 million home is located on 9.5 acres in Chilmark, the wealthiest town on the island.

The home was built in 1961 and renovated in 2006, according to Sundberg’s website.

It features a private master suite with its own den. An open floor plan includes pond and ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. There’s also a small basketball court.’ (Source)


The Watcher’s Council!

For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher’s Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.

A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to be part of!

Each week members select and submit an article that they have written in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.

While you may not always agree with what you read, that fact alone may make the experience much more valuable!

Once all of the nominated articles have been received at an undisclosed location by the Council leader, a location that is well hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members review and vote for their favorite entries.

These votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner has been chosen for the Grand Prize.

This Grand Prize which consists of the appreciation of ones peers.

In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate source for conservative opinion, commentary and analysis!

So without further ado the Watcher’s Council nominations for the week of July 29, 2013 are…?

Humor: Can you believe that the US Olympic Committee replaced Lindsey Vonn with Barack Obama?

Just weeks ago, Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn tore the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in her right knee and fractured her tibia during a harrowing ski accident in Schlamding, Austria.

Vonn was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Schladming.

Concerned that she wouldn’t be ready for the 2014 Winter Olympics, the U.S. Olympic Committee announced today that her spot on the U.S. Olympic Team would be filled by Barack Obama.

U.S. Olympic officials said Obama deserved the spot on the team because no one has ever taken a country downhill faster than he has.
