Obama Admin Built On Architects Plan Of Potemkin Village

Common Sense Commentary: Everything about the Obama/Clinton Democrat bamboozle is smoke and mirrors, bate and switch, a ponzi scheme rip off,
a flimflam racket, a con-artist hustle. Obama's agenda in four four letter words ... FAKE WITH ZERO HOPE. It fits the historic description conjured up by the similarly deceptive actions of two other swindlers. One in 1787 in an area still being fought over today, the Crimea. RB

Grigory Potyomkin was a dashing 18th century Russian nobleman who intrigued in courts, smote his enemies upon the steppes and allegedly wooed Catherine the Great. It was while he was courting his nation's comely Tsarina, at least according to legend, that his name came to forever stand for something insubstantial. For Catherine's 1783 tour of new Russian possessions in the Crimea, Potyomkin endeavored to show her the best face of the empire. As the story goes, pasteboard facades of pretty towns were set up at a distance on riverbanks. At stops, she'd be greeted by regiments of Amazonian snipers or fields set ablaze by burning braziers and exploding rockets spelling her initials; whole populations of serfs were moved around and dressed up in fanciful garb to flaunt a prosperity that didn't exist (later precipitating famine in the region). A "Potemkin village" signifies any deceptive or false construct, conjured often by cruel regimes, to deceive both those within the land and those peering in from outside.

(From Wikipedia Encyclopedia)
The phrase "Potemkin village" (derived from the RussianПотёмкинские деревниPotyomkinskiye derevni) was originally used to describe a fake portable village, built only to impress. According to the story, Grigory Potemkin erected the fake portable settlement along the banks of the Dnieper River in order to fool Empress Catherine II during her journey to Crimea in 1787. The phrase is now used, typically in politics and economics, to describe any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that some situation is better than it really is. 

My Comment:
How apropos can a comparison get?  Something put up high in the media for all to see. Something fake like unemployment numbers, Inflation rate, False gun accusations, ObamaCare ruse, Undermining Law Enforcement Officers, False claims of strong economic conditions, Making criminals of the law abiding and law abiding of criminals .... and the list goes on and on and on. The whole nation is being converted into a Potemkin Village, a paper tiger, green paper money with zero standing behind it but broken promises and hot air. Like Potemkin's fake villages, a hollow facade, a lying smile on the face of our modern day Potemkin Obama, Potemkin Clinton .... and even some Potemkin Republicans. RB 

(2) Ponzi Scheme

And then there was a swindler who went by the name, "Charles Ponzi" and several other aliases, but his real name was Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi. If that were my name I would shorten it too, but its length was not the reason he changed it to "Charles". He was a swindler, a scam artist who changed his name often to hide from the LAW and those whose money he had stolen. So his name lives on today associated with a pyramid type scheme still being used with a mixture of lies to mislead and rob people of their confidence and their savings. It is called a "Ponzi Scheme".

(From Wikipedia Encyclopedia)
Charles Ponzi (March 3, 1882 – January 18, 1949) was an Italian businessman and con artist in the U.S. and Canada. His aliases include Charles Ponci Carloand ,Charles P. Bianchi. Born in Italy, he became known in the early 1920s as a swindler in North America for his money-making scheme. He promised clients a 50% profit within 45 days, or 100% profit within 90 days .... Ponzi was paying early investors using the investments of later investors
My Comment
How would you and your descendants like your name to come to mean a liar and thief? Which gives me an idea......

As of today I will introduce two new words for the dictionaries.  A "billary " Clinton is "A greedy, power hungry liar". And a "baracko" is "A conspiratorial  traitor".   RB

How fitting .... and to think Hillary and Barrack got these two new words the "old fashioned way" .... THEY EARNED IT.
