Irish Politician Calls Obama A War Criminal And Hypocrite In Parliament

220px-Clare_DalyPresident_Barack_ObamaMany civil libertarians around the world have rallied to support Clare Daly, Irish Parliament member of the United Left Alliance representing Dublin, after she challenged the prime minister and the reception given to President Barack Obama who she called a war criminal. The video of the speech is below. Daly called Obama the “hypocrite of the century” for lecturing children on peace while expanding drone attacks and funding civil wars around the world. Many in the United States particularly took note of her attack on the type of cult of personality surrounding Obama that seems detached from his horrendous record on civil liberties, privacy, and international law.

Daly noted that it is not just the government but the media fueling this cult of personality — spending endless time on what the Obamas were ordering for lunch rather than discussing his authoritarian policies. She is the former Socialist Party Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin North constituency but resigned from the Socialist Party and joined the United Left Alliance TD.

Daly is being attacked as immature and radical in her comments.

  1. Oops! I didn’t mean to say “penultimate” or “ultimate” when referring to the first bad-guy (Satan the Devil). I meant to say “quintessential” to refer to the perfect evil-guy. My bad!

    1. To associate the word perfect to Satan is an oxymoronic statement. He is the darkest of dark. He is in a body that dies making living things dead calling it good. He is in stars as they violently consume themselves. He is in war with proud people charging into it thinking they are working for freedom doing a good thing.

  2. sonofthunderboanerges; The truth comes in many forms and the fact that you have interpreted it through ancient script needs no apology when it is right on the money. You should remember that these occurrences are not new, they are just at greater and greater magnitudes.

    Believe in Obama all you want, but don’t let him marry your daughter!

  3. Bruce, Frank, Jonathan – I am PRO-OBAMA! I do not want to see him go down with the ship (or jail). I think there is an alternative and I think he knows what he needs to do. He is not blind to reality as so many seem to be today (Matthew 15:14). Right now we can only pray for him the way Jesus said we should pray to his non-triune God (Matthew 6:9-13). But he may also need to follow an old Cajun-Creole proverb: “When the ‘gators are up to you butt it’s too late to remember that you shudda’ drained the swamp!”

    Firing all of his Bush-era cronies probably won’t be enuf’ to save his legacy. Right now all he can do is hope for massive help from a higher-power and hope it’s not the same one that was helping Reagan (astrology?), Dubya (voices & false-evangelicals), Hitler (thule?), etc. I think if he prays to President Eisenhower’s mom’s God he may just have a chance (or not if it’s too late – who knows?).

    “I think Gene’s angst should be aimed at the entire system and not just one POTUS.”

    I think you should be more familiar with my history here before making such a pronouncement…

    Actually you are correct. I admit I was just focusing on your posts in this thread. My apologies for over looking your big picture and only looking at the parts vs the whole. You might say it was a knee-jerk reaction on my part.

    I said you are very different from the rest of the pack. One needs to really examine your POV before passing judgment on your state of mind. I agree that Mr. Obama’s true intentions need to be examined by the public (us). I personally can not see a hidden agenda as I see in the “others”. If he is the same as them I really am blind to it.

    However, I for one do not believe humans can guide their own destiny without help. I think the past 6,000+ years of human history has proved that. There’s always the selfishness, greed, and avarice, that get’s in the way of true human progress. I truly feel sorry for Mr. Obama as I personally think that the time for testing that theory (human self-rule) is just about up.

    Of course I am not an atheist. I believe that a higher power has allowed a certain misanthropic drop-out (i.e. bad-guy) from his heavenly group try to prove that it deserves sovereignty (i.e. right to rule) over humans rather than him. From a Biblical sense the penultimate bad guy has been called the “god of this age” or system of things. Jesus and Paul both referred to him as something like that scripturally. That means that our calamities, success, failures, technical advancements, etc. MAY have been because of the bad-guy above NOT the higher power we know as God.

    I believe that the legal challenge in the Book of Job to “prove your case” (i.e. human self-rule with bad-guys help) is in it’s last days. This means Mr. Obama is now a ‘pawn’ of sorts just like Pharaoh (i.e. possibly Ramses ?X?) was during the incident with Moses and the release of the Israelites. In that scenario arguably BOTH meta-physical parties where manipulating Pharaoh mentally (i.e. God turned his heart hard against the Moses’ people…). Jannes and Jambres (Pharaoh ‘s magicians and advisers) proved that Pharaoh was also being manipulated by the bad-guy too.

    So why all this mumbo-jumbo from me to reply to your posting? I believe that we (humans) don’t have a clue what to do about Earth’s woes today and we need large-scale help and soon. The present evil prince, ruler, masquerader who has been fooling people (2 Corinthians 11:14) in THINKING he is God has been trying to bring us to the brink of destruction via his other inventions (fundamentalist religions). Case in point was WW2. IMO if it weren’t for the good One giving a little help through Eisenhower and Allan Turing I do not think we would have survived that point in history. There is a lot we are NOT told about WW2 for good reasons.

    Then there was the USSR and Red China. They STILL are a threat to our survival only under different names, and then add in DPRK to make things even worse. Al-Queida is a tiny pebble in the real bad-guy pool. The meta-physical penultimate quintessential bad-guy has been very busy ever since 911. Why? Read Revelation 12:12 for your answer.

    Mr. Obama should have lost the last election and pass that cup onto someone else. I pray that he (and all of us) survives what’s next…

    Sorry for the holy-joe routine… I try not to be pious but sometimes it just overwhelms me… Please serious consider my mumbo-jumbo before summarily dismissing it as the pschyo-babble of a religious nut. Remember Jonah went through the same scenario. And look what happened to the archeologically-proven city of Nineveh. Oh well…

  5. Swarthmore mom is a hate filled idiot seeing racism everywhere. Shes a hypocrite. Give it a rest already. People like you are making things worse in this country. Alll you do is cry racism. WE DONT CARE ANYMORE WE ARE SICK OF HEARING ABOUT IT. 90% of the time when you open your mouth its not even racism to begin with. Oh and when the hell are you going to start calling out blacks being racist against whites? You wont because it doesnt fit your agenda.

  6. sonofthunderboanerges: True believers…go down with the ship. Unfortunately, they contributed to the ship sinking as well.
    Facts are no conspiracy theory. Face the facts. You have been HAD!

  7. Why our lawyers cannot bring a law suit in the supreme court against the president for engaging in treason by violating the constitution that he was supposed to protect (if that is what Jonathan Turley and other esteemed lawyers believe he has been doing) …?

  8. To Obama and the U.S. Government

    Matthew 23
    King James Version (KJV)

    13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

    14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

    15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

    28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

    33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

  9. sotb,

    “I think Gene’s angst should be aimed at the entire system and not just one POTUS.”

    I think you should be more familiar with my history here before making such a pronouncement.

    I’m all about systems, complexity and reduction of systemic error. Although my first column here (“What Makes A Good Law, What Makes A Bad Law?“) was couched in the language of philosophy, I’m very much a technocrat. I approach the subjects of law and society with as much (if not more) of a scientific eye as I do a philosophical eye. Even the philosophical approach taken there was filtered by the reductionism of the scientific method.

    Do not mistake my extreme displeasure with one man to be representative of how I look at the problems of government.

    I’m not anti-Obama because he’s Obama. I’m not swayed by charisma (particularly in politics) nor do I evaluate what something or someone is by anything other than their function and actions. For example, I don’t consider the Kochs fascists for any other reason than they operate like fascists. They certainly don’t sell themselves or their causes as fascist, but if you understand the nature of fascism, the quality and content of their actions becomes clear. I’m anti-Obama because he’s a war criminal as well as an aider and abettor of treason after the fact and he reflects a systemic failure at self-correction as the checks and balances system was intended to operate. It’s not just his actions at fault, its the inaction of Congress (and to some extent the Judiciary) at fault. If Congress was doing their job as defined by the Constitution, both Bush and Cheney would have been impeached before they left office, the Patriot Act would have never been passed and Citizens United would be nothing but a bad footnote in jurisprudence at this point. The same can be said of Obama. The instant he claimed the ultra vires power to assassinate American citizens without Due Process, he should have been impeached.

    That is a systemic failure.

    Not only that, it’s a systemic failure I can trace to its roots. Money in politics. A great many of our systemic dys- and malfunctions have their roots in the soil of what is essentially by function institutionalized graft. It’s not the only systemic problem we have, but it is the taproot.

  10. The true focus need be upon reality not fiction made fact.

    Wots reality ? Whats the purpose of life? Is there a God ?.

    Ultimate stage in human development IS VIA MeDiTaTiOn
    NO not MEDICATION but via MEDITATION in one’s turning
    the senses inward / thus doing so one has a very practical
    experience of the power of creation / such experience then
    gifting one a clarity in understanding unto creation creator.

    Throughout history of humanity there be always a Teacher
    of Teachers whom will guide aid those reaching such stage
    where meditation is required in their furthering / experience.

    Present time the Teacher of Teachers is Prem Rawat Prem
    has dedicated his life in aid guide to those where reaching
    the stage that meditation vital in their further understanding.

    On pc search put (words of peace) (words of peace global)
    on site a selection of videos which Prem explains meditation
    as a invitation he will guide aid all in their further experience
    as understanding / to go beyond ideas as beliefs unto their
    understanding in clarity the ultimate purpose being granted
    a human life / understanding creation / knowing the creator.

  11. @Darren Smith – LMAO – good one dude…

    These guys are parrots repeating conspiracy theories from specious websites like Infowars and that other one I can’t remember. Then there’s my friend Wayne Madsen at I believe about 80% what he says as he was a NSA analyst and worked for MIC. But all of his “Obama was a homo” and “The CIA groomed Obama for POTUS” is all WAG (wild-a$$-speculation) on his part. He admits that but the parrots skip over those parts as they have already made up their minds.

    However, there is only one POTUS that was “groomed” by CIA as his dad was the CIA Director in 1978 and tried to steal the POTUS spot by executive-succession-by-bullet (i.e. Hinckley Incident). Then there is the rumor that daddy had Jr go through that Dr. Sydney Gottleib program (CIA-TSS-MK Program) to get his dumb-a$$ in line and focused on his two stolen terms as POTUS. Both GWB elections followed the same MO that CIA used in Philippines et al. So yes you can get a CIA groomed child but your last name better be BUSH not Smith. 🙂

    ““Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought he could possibly be president,” said DuJan.”

    You are welcome to join me at my favorite bar, a gay bar in my state’s capital, that I frequent about once a week or so to do some research on your proposal. I like the clientel and the bartender is a pretty good guy. You can mention your suspicions about President Obama’s experiences you proffered in the page and I am quite sure many of the bar patrons would be happy to deliver their response to you without hesitation.

    Also I didn’t realize the CIA manufactured families. I don’t have children and the adoption process is something I am a bit leary of, but if I could get a couple custom built children from the CIA it would make my wife quite happy. CIA built kids seem to go places in life as you have suggested, straight to the Whitehouse it seems. Their incubation surrogate-bot must be very proud.

    So how do I go about ordering a couple CIA children? Do I just pick up a phone and dial some random phone number and say “Hey, I’d like a CIA built child” and a friendly CIA operator will then tap in and take my order?

    Sounds exciting. Thanks for the help.

  13. @Arthur Randolph Erb – Dammit I think we know each other… we have crossed paths before on the Internets (as Dubya would say) – LOL

    Gene H is one of the good ones. The others (you know who you are) are just screeching parrots repeating gibberish. Gene has valid concerns about Barry (President Obama). He is for Globalization. That worries me. I’m a pro-Obama citizen too. Many of the things he said above are quite true. However, you know the old expression “in a perfect world” blah blah blah.

    I think Gene’s angst should be aimed at the entire system and not just one POTUS. Mr. Obama is not a king and does not have unilateral control of the country. He can’t close GTMO as his own party objects. He has tried. He can’t gut the MIC as that would be like how JFK, Frank Church, and Leo Ryan tried to do that with the CIA. Where are they now? You think the MIC is not just as powerful? I give Barry an A for effort but he has too many obstacles before him.

    Art I remember that old fat drunk McCarthy. You know he was just a puppet of that homo lawyer Roy Cohn.

    Back to Gene… He is basically right. If we let the fat cat Industrialists continue to control our country through lobbyists and giving corporations so many breaks we will one day be ruled by a corporate-based governance as predicted in so many models prophesied by sci-fi book authors.

  14. @Gene H – If the MIC fails then that means critical jobs will be lost (a Republican screed). Yes all you said I agree with we (USA) needs all of that. However, I see Mr. Obama doing things to help American high technology (i.e. DARPA, NASA, JPL, etc). He needs to shore up the off-shore outsourcing Dubya started in 2001.

    I will concede that he can target some MIC’s like Halliburton, CSC, Academie, etc who all seem to have criminal intent but nobody can prove it.

    Your not lazy my friend… you are different. Yes I am lazy. No argument.

    Re 300: adoption?

    I think 1 of 300 John Eleuthere DuPont (Delaware USA) tried that with an Olympic Wrestler (David Schultz) also back in 1996. He was a son of William DuPont Jr (uber-300). I don’t think you want these sociopaths to adopt you. Truffles (dug up by trained hogs) would be the least of your problems. You could ask George Soros (uber-300) but you’d have to move to Hungary and eat gulash (bleech) and celebrate Hanukkah (not bad).

  16. ” I have to keep the status-quo or the entire system might fail. And where does that leave us defenselessly.”

    Apparently you don’t grasp the scale of the disparity in spending. And the only thing that would fail is the defense industry. That money could be spent elsewhere. Like high speed rail, finding an alternative to carbon based fuels, making sure our educational system is the best in the world, making sure every citizen could get healthcare and not have to worry if it was going to bankrupt them, rebuilding our collapsing infrastructure, basic science research, developing technologies to combat climate change and space exploration. Those few items alone could easily offset the collapse of the defense industry. If you want to talk about lazy thinking? Keeping the “status quo” or “the entire system might fail” is pretty damn lazy. The status quo is not only not working, it’s marching us headlong into fascism and tyranny. And that’s a story that ends badly every time.

    1. I agree with most of what Gene H said, but he left out one of the best things about non-defense spending which is that the multiplier effect of that kind of spending is FAR in excess of defense. So for every dollar spent on goods and services in the civil sector yeilds twice the return that defense spenidng does.

      The reason for that is obvious since defense spending results in nothing that goes on the market for others to buy. Then most of that spending uses high salaried engineers and scientists along with high tech equipment, so what is bought are fewer things, and the money spent is to a very limited small branch of consumers.

      Since I lived and grew up during the McCarthy era, and I recall the post WWI USA, we are far freer than we ever were back then. There was the same kind of illegal spying going on, only that hundreds of people were sent to prison for nothing other than incorrect political views. Back then, while the Federal government did not do as much poitical murder as the states, murder by government was a long establish tradition in most parts of the US. So I get a little tired of chicken littles running around saying we are now a fascist state. If the US were truly that, we would NOT be discussing this right now.

      I am glad though that many make a protest against some of the bad laws and precedents that have been set. That needs to keep on to prevent worse from happening, but one has to keep a sense of proportion in it. Otherwise, you will inure Americans to the idea that more governmental restrictions are good since they will not be affect by these prohibions. Don’t cry WOLF unless there is a real BIG WOLF that is going to eat you ASAP.

  17. Dante, Jonathan Hughes, Bruce, Frank – Are you guys serious or are you all suffering from something in DSM-IV-TR? Mr. Obama is NOT gay. Even though according to mainstream society is no different than being Black or White so is now not a problem. That’s my friend Wayne Madsen’s fault. Wayne is talking out his arse on that one.

    Mr. Obama was called “Barry” (short for BARack) by his step date Mr Soyeto. SO F&&KING WHAT? How is that a problem?

    Guys (i.e. Jonathan) when your preaching at someone please address that person like this: @Jonathan Hughes It will only help us know who you are aiming your specious religious diatribe at.

    Dante please stop spamming – OK?

    Bruce – GITMO can not be closed because every time Barry tries his own DEMOCRATS stop him. So stop blaming him. Blame his party. They want to keep it. The right thing to do is reopen the closed supermaxes in NY and Michigan and send them there. They closed Plum Island in NY and moved to central USA (underground I think). They could move them there. At least the microbes will get ’em there (LOL).

    Blouise – why does your WordPress account keep changing? Am I talking to an imposter with lower case “blouise”? You are upper-case “Blouise” – yes?

    1. The people against Obama are trying to destroy Obama. Do you think anything good comes out of trying to destroy anyone? Does trying to destroy Obama teach anyone what is good? What we are going to get is debt. Money is based on debt. Money is mans idea not Gods idea. That is why we have the problems that we have with money.

  18. @Gene H – Snowden and Manning are an odd lot. I’m still not convinced that BOTH of them are not part of some really insane op concocted by some over-achiever in CIA-NCS (with Barry’s approval). With PRISM being so effective how did either of them go off grid – as you and I know is actually impossible. That’s unless you talk to your neighbor over a tin-can and string. Even that can be tapped too (LOL)

    “What should we do about our Defense Industry? Let them fail? I would allow Carlyle Group* fail but they where smart enuf’ to go overseas and join up with BaE (UK). (*HW Bush MIC company).”

    We shouldn’t base our foreign policy on keeping them in fat contracts and fully employed. If the go out of business? Screw ‘em. We currently spend a hugely disproportionate amount of money on defense compared to other countries for wars that are unnecessary and against “terrorism” which is about as likely to result in your death as your own furniture. In 2011, we spent 739 billion dollars on “defense”. Our next nearest competitor? China spent 89.8 billion dollars. Our defense budget that year was more than the next top 10 spenders combined by almost 250 billion dollars. And yet, somehow, we can’t afford to rebuild our infrastructure or fund social programs. Hmmmm. But those defense companies sure are making out like bandits and the pols whose campaigns they fund never seem to suffer from a lack of ad dollars.

    You my friend are like the rapper 2 Chainz – you are different. The rest sound like paranoid-schizophrenic babblers. What you say is important and valid. I enjoy reading your posts. I have to agree with this one but being like the “Prince”; Barry (was his real name once) and I have to keep the status-quo or the entire system might fail. And where does that leave us defenselessly. I mean without Boeing, Martin-Marietta, Raytheon, etc. what would happen to America? I don’t know what POTUS ever bit the hand that feeds America (and him). In a perfect world than yes – screw ’em all. Destroy Wall Street – OK – it would stop so many conspiratorial activities against America but what do we do after that? Thread water and let the EU take care of us in a One World Government. I don’t think so. China as well as DPRK are spending critical dollars (or Yuans) that feed their people. Obama is trying to stop the Republicans from taking food out of our mouths – literally (i.e. destroying SNAP program?)

    “What money in politics?”

    Are you asleep? is a good place to start if you want to see how money unbalances the electoral and legislative processes. Our “campaign finance system” is little more than formalized graft.

    Yes pretty much. I get too much sleep though – (LOL)

    Yes I know about “campaign finance reform”. I kinda’ thought it was a step in the Right direction to keep the Republicans honest – d’oh too late! That’s a tall order which is probably one of those perfect world model thingies.

    However, I agree with you it aint working. Back to the drawing board I guess. You should become a pol and see if you can bring change that’s needed.

    “Two-tiered justice system— I can’t debate with you on this as it sounds like an opinion rather than an alleged fact.”

    How about the fact that Bush and Cheney got away with treason and political nobody whistleblowers like Manning and Snowden get crucified for starters. The principles of the 14th Amendment mean no man is above the law. Even the President. The Nixonian meme “It’s not illegal if the President does it” – one you seem to buy into with gusto – is legal gibberish by the terms of the Constitution and ethical garbage if you value democracy and egalitarianism.

    Oh yeah you and I already discussed this. This is one of those things I said “evolve” and might be better handled in a different way. I think the only target should be Dick Cheney. Bush is still hanging himself with his moronic speeches on immigration. His legacy is now set as the WORST POTUS of all time. Somebody needs to do a movie on Dick. A producer/director still alive and not suicided like Ridley Scott.

    Yeah, I’ve got an opinion, but it’s based on fact.
