Beware The Leopard

Guess what Obama Stooge Loretta Lynch will not being doing this year? And the Liberal Media will bury under 600 Feet of concrete BS.

“What difference does it make?”

Hillary is the Once and Future Queen. The Left ordained it. The Leftist Media works 24/7 to bring the peasants in to vote for it.

The truth is utterly irrelevant.

Liberal Media:  YAWN!!

But I bet if you talked about Nixon ordering someone to break into the Watergate Hotel to sneak a peek they’ll have your rapid attention for hours…

The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department early Friday contain what may be the smoking gun that forces the Justice Department to charge the former secretary of state with a crime, according to former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova.

“This is gigantic,” said diGenova. “She caused to be removed a classified marking and then had it transmitted in an unencrypted manner. That is a felony. The removal of the classified marking is a federal crime. It is the same thing to order someone to do it as if she had done it herself.”

On the June 17, 2011, email chain with senior State Department adviser Jake Sullivan, Clinton apparently asked Sullivan to change the marking on classified information so that it is no longer flagged as classified.

Clinton, using her private email server, asks for “the TPs,” apparently a reference to talking points being prepared for her. Sullivan, who is using his official State Department email, responds, “They say they’ve had issues sending secure fax. They’re working on it.” Clinton responds, “If they can’t, turn into nonpaper w[ith] no identifying heading and send nonsecure.”

It’s not clear if Sullivan actually followed through on Clinton’s orders. But if he did, it may expose Clinton to serious legal jeopardy.

“This makes it impossible for the bureau not to recommend charges,” diGenova said of the FBI. “This makes it impossible not to go forward, and it certainly ties the hand of the attorney general.”

Some have speculated that while the FBI may recommend charges, Attorney General Loretta Lynch might try to avoid doing so for political reasons.

” …You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anyone or anything.’ But the plans were on display…’ o n display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.’ `That’s the display department.’ `With a torch.’ `Ah, well the lights had probably gone.’ `So had the stairs.’ `But look you found the notice didn’t you?’ `Yes,’ said Arthur, `yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of The Leopard”.’ — Douglas Adams.

The revelation also appears to put the lie to Clinton’s claim that she never handled classified information on her server.

“What difference Does it make?” 🙂

Hillary is incapable of telling the truth. She’s a Reverse Pinocchio, her nose would only grow if she actually told the honest truth. 🙂

“I did not send nor receive anything that was classified at the time,” she has claimed. By instructing her aide to send her material marked classified, it is clear that she not only may have received classified information, but that it was indeed “classified at the time.”

“I did not have sex with that woman…”

“This means that when she said, ‘I never received anything marked classified,’ she in fact did,” diGenova said.

And a Little blue dress says you did, Bill. 🙂

David Bossie, president of the watchdog group Citizens United, said the email could become the emblem of Hillary’s email scandal.

But the Media will put a “Beware the Leopard” sign on it.

“It proves that Hillary Clinton affirmatively instructed senior staff to send classified data to an unsecured server,” he said. “With that, it cements into history, much like the famous Bill Clinton finger wag.”

Now let me be Clear… 🙂

Making Society Better

Allen West: I found a definition of Yin and Yang to be, “In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also, yin-yang or yin yang) describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.” It appears that our 2016 presidential election cycle is early on being defined by that philosophy. The question is, can this media-driven divide be good for the future of our Constitutional Republic?

In 2008 it was all about the “anti-Bush” sentiment in America – heavily fueled by a complicit media. The rallying slogan was “Hope and Change.” Some of us will never forget the statement, “we are the change that we have been waiting for.” Huh?

Pronoun Trouble… 🙂

None of this was challenged, but embraced as a historical moment that truly was the Yang to the existing Yin. Amazingly, there were little to no questions about policy; just the simplistic retort that “I will not be like the current president.” Furthermore, any challenge to the issue of a lack of policy proposals and experience in 2008 was met with the Alinsky tactic of personal demonization by way of being castigated as racist. And so in 2008 America replaced the Yin with the Yang and we had a new Yin – progressive socialism.

In 2012, the new slogan became “Forward,” and that was even as we recognized that so many quantitative assessments evidenced we were not going forward. We were certainly not progressing, and that situation continues to today. There were deceptions of jobs report numbers and we know that the economy was suffering under one of the most anemic recoveries in American history. But what was most telling was that we actually believed that we were safer; that Islamic terrorism was quelled. That was because Osama bin Laden had been double-tapped by U.S. Navy SEALS. However, the reality was far from being such. And so another deception took place when on 9-11-12 four Americans were abandoned to die in Benghazi – a place which had been destabilized by a horrific intervention by the current administration. Yet the new Yin, aided by a dedicated media campaign told us it was just a video.

So in 2012 we kept the current Yin.

Today, the situation is completely reversed. There is a new Yang that has risen due to the failures of the current Yin. The new slogan is “Make America Great Again.” This Yang has tapped into the evident weakness of the current Yin and has garnered a solid support base. Funny, this new Yang is not being embraced by the liberal progressive media, but its incessant assaults have enhanced the popularity of this new Yang in many aspects. And why is this happening? Simple: because the media clearly established and continues to establish itself as the protector of the progressive socialist ideal in 2008 and 2012. They have lost their credibility.

However, I would caution America to carefully assess whether this new Yang presents any viable policy solutions – similar to 2008.

My concern is that we Americans are once again being driven by media news cycles and not focusing on the prevailing issues or the future of America. Instead of basing our decisions about the future leadership of America on individual personalities, we must seek out a vision. Sadly, the social culture in America forces us to pay more attention to personas rather that principles. Now, I will be the first to admit that consideration of policy solutions may seem boring, but a base understanding is essential.

 

We have become more drawn to the person than the ideal. And what is lacking is a representation of the embodiment of that American ideal. Some would say that it does not exist, and God knows there are many who are trying to eradicate it – “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America.”

What is necessary at this time in the current election cycle is for the American electorate to listen, and not be emotional. How do we restore the free enterprise opportunity society in order to get Americans back to work and productive in their own lanes? How do we develop a strategy to defeat militant Islamic terrorism? What needs to be done to reasonably stem the flow of illegal immigrants into America, secure our sovereign borders, yet also streamline our legal immigration system? How do we repair a healthcare system where individual premiums are rising, the individual mandate tax is increasing, and the level of care is decreasing? How do we advance the idea of parents being in charge of educating their children and being responsible for determining their outcomes – not the government?

The current Yin has done an exceptional job at focusing America on emotional “feeling” oriented issues. The reality is that the American public feels less safe. They know their beloved America, the land of individual economic empowerment, is becoming a breeding ground of collective economic enslavement, wealth transfer to grow the dependency society, a playground for social egalitarianism, and abject weakness.

And so we have the rise of the new Yang, a new slogan, but a lack of defined policy vision. The interconnection of the Yin and Yang of politics in America is that demagoguery has no favorite side. It can appear anywhere and finds a way to feed off the other.

As we close out 2015, enjoy a blessed Hanukkah, have a Merry Christmas, and celebrate a joyous and Happy New Year. May your favorite college football team win its bowl game – unless they are playing mine. But was we enter into a pivotal presidential election season, seek out an American leader, not an American celebrity.

The Housewife of DC From the Arkansas Shore,Madame President

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Let’s be honest: It is just an unfortunate fact that Hillary Clinton stands a good chance of becoming the next president of the United States.

As unappealing as that prospect is, it’s true. It has nothing to do with policy – aside from being old enough, Hillary lacks any qualifications a nation should desire in a leader. It has everything to do with celebrity, and the Clintons are the political Kardashians.

Aside from making millions upon millions of dollars, what do the Kardashians do? Yes, they have businesses now, but they’re all based on, and sell, the celebrity they have. They didn’t create anything; they didn’t start companies that employed thousands of people and then become famous. They did all of that afterwards to wring every last dollar out of that fame. And God bless them for it.

The Kardashians are true capitalists – they saw an opportunity, seized it, and made hundreds of millions of dollars off it. Sure, it all started with a sex tape that only a decade earlier would have had the entire family hanging their heads in shame, but the moral degradation of society they spearheaded aside, they earned their money.

Granted, they earned it through no real talent, skill, intellect or any other attribute that could be considered beneficial to society, but they played the cards they were dealt and made a fortune. They are the embodiment of the American Dream, at least in concept (execution is a different story).

The Clinton family has done pretty much the same thing.

The Kardashian wealth came from patriarch Robert, who made a fortune as a lawyer and businessman. The fame came from a porn tape of then-unknown Kim with a then-famous rapper time has all but forgotten.

The Clinton wealth comes from Bill Clinton being elected president. It’s safe to say that no one in history has milked more personal wealth from past elected office than he has. Hillary’s fame comes from having married him and not divorced him after numerous affairs. Although there (thankfully) wasn’t a sex tape, Hillary’s parlayed her victim status from the Monica Lewinsky affair into a U.S. Senate seat from a state she’d never lived in.

Hillary had gone to good schools and practiced law, but she was nothing special, just Bill’s wife. Kim had grown up around rich and famous people, but no one cared who she was because she hadn’t done anything.

Media attention elevated both, especially after the sex scandals in which they were involved. Sympathy was drummed up for Hillary; curiosity for Kim. But the result was the same: elevated, unearned status to the point of being culturally important.

Hillary Clinton had accomplished nothing in life that hadn’t been accomplished by 100,000 other female lawyers in the country except for one thing – she married a guy who became president. Deciding to live life as an enabler of a sexual predator has rewarded her with fame, incredible wealth and unimaginable power. But she didn’t really earn any of it; it was, for the sake of brevity, given to her.

In a very real sense, Kim Kardashian has accomplished more than Hillary has. Yes, Hillary was twice elected to the Senate, but that came largely as a result of sympathy and a famously inept opponent. New York Democrats essentially cleared the field for her, the general election (after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani dropped out because he had been diagnosed with cancer) was a formality. It could not have been easier if she’d been appointed.

Hillary had no real qualifications to represent New York in the Senate, and she had no real accomplishments in the Senate. But she was portrayed as a star because of who she was, much like celebrity magazines put Kim on their covers because she exists.

From the Senate, Hillary ran an awful, aimless campaign for the 2008 Democratic Party nomination for president, losing to a man with even fewer achievements on his resume. She was appointed secretary of state not for her ability, but to prevent her from mounting a primary challenge in 2012.

With zero foreign policy experience, Hillary was a disaster running the State Department. Her ineptitude was so obvious from the start that President Obama did not involve her in the most complex foreign policy area on the planet – the Middle East. Three days into his presidency, President Obama created the position of “United States Special Envoy for Middle East Peace” and appointed former Sen. George Mitchell to fill it.

Kim Kardashian is paid to show up to events and be seen as a way to draw attention to the events. She is not expected to say or do anything important. As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton was paid to show up to events, draw attention to them and be seen as showing the United States cared about them. But she didn’t do or say anything important. That job was left to Mitchell.

In many ways the Kardashians are better than the Clintons. Sure, they’ve lowered the bar of celebrity and degrade our culture, but people have to voluntarily choose to empower and enrich them. The Clintons have been empowered and enriched at our expense.

If someone sucks up to a Kardashian it costs only that person. If someone sucks up to a Clinton, it costs all of us. The Kardashians can only annoy; the Clintons can grant government contracts, special permissions, taxpayer dollars, etc., etc.

Given the choice, I’d rather see Kim Kardashian in the White House than Hillary Clinton in 2017. We’ve literally seen everything both have to offer, and although what Kim offers is worthless and damaging, at least she doesn’t complete the Clinton trifecta of being corrupt to boot. (Derek Hunter)

The Case For Hillary

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

1) After being accused of racism every time they disagree with the President, Americans will enjoy the change of pace by being accused of sexism every time they disagree with the President.

At least we’d get rid of “race relations” being the problem. We’d replace it with “gender relations” and White Males would STILL be the ultimate enemy!! 🙂

2) America’s military would be unstoppable because of three little words that Hillary would bring to the White House, “Flying Monkey Legions!”

Vast Right Wing Conspiracies would be true. 🙂

3) It would be terrible for our first black President to be the worst POTUS of all time and Hillary can take care of that problem.

4) Americans LOVE dynasties! Next it’s Jeb Bush’s turn. Then Chelsea Clinton. THEN Michelle Obama. Then Jenna Bush. Then Malia Obama and so on and so on into infinity. If Americans didn’t like being ruled by royal families, then you’d think there would have been some small indication of it in our history by now, right? 😉

5) We Americans take pride in giving good value for the money that’s paid to us and all those foreign governments that paid off Hillary when she was Secretary of State would REALLY hit the jackpot if she became President.

You wouldn’t have to worry about whether the President was corrupt because you’d already know she is BEFORE you elected her so nothing would be a surprise. The media wouldn’t would have to cover it as a “scandal” because that would just be Hillary being Hillary so nothing out of the ordinary there.

6) She’ll be a fantastic role model for young women who’ll learn that as long as you marry the right man and ride his coattails at every opportunity – you, too, can succeed!

7) Well, if she could handle being Secretary of State with no problems, then obviously…oh wait, she didn’t, did she?

8) Eight more years of complete and utter servile capitulation to a President of the United States should be enough to destroy the whole liberal mainstream media’s reputation for good.

9) If Hillary were to win, then all the people who tell America how incompetent she’ll be will be able to enjoy being proven right about her over and over again just as they have been about Barack Obama.

10) It’s long since time that small children were shown The Vagina Monologues before the White House Easter Egg Roll.

11) Everybody THINKS he can be President, but for hundreds of years, Americans have insisted on choosing Presidents based on “merit” and “accomplishments.” If both Obama and Hillary can be President, then that proves any undeserving idiot can do the job as long as he or she checks the right diversity box.

12) Despite the many credible claims that the money she made was part of a shady bribe, obviously parlaying $1,000 into $100,000 in highly speculative commodity market trading proves that Hillary Clinton really is…THE SMARTEST WOMAN ON EARTH!

13) Who could possibly be a better role model for young women in America than a politician who has been endorsed by Larry Flynt AND Hookers for Hillary?

14) Replacing Air Force One with a broomstick would mean tens of millions in savings for the taxpayers!

15) Like duh, she’s an incompetent lying socialist who will drive the final nails in America’s coffin after 8 years of Barack Obama and…oh wait, the goal here IS to destroy America, right? Oh, wow…it’s not? Then maybe she’s NOT the right candidate. (John Hawkins)

Naw, she the only one LEFT according to the Media… 🙂

And imagine how how annoyed the Jihadists will be with a Woman in charge! How dare we do something so vulgar and such a heresy! Maybe we can get her to wear a Burka. 🙂

Imagine what Bill could do for fundraiser for her re-election in 2020! The Hookers For Hillary could become his extended family, especially with Bill around to “entertain” them.

Imagine his School Lunch program. Wieners for everyone!

Think of the possibilities! Maybe even get Monica Lewinsky for a Cabinet “position”.

Go ahead, make my day…

Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, concluded, “President Obama is begging to be impeached.”

“For all I know, Obama is preparing to process five million illegal immigrant kids and teenagers into the United States,” Stockman said upon observing border operations near McAllen, Texas.

“He wants us to impeach him now,” Stockman theorized, “before the midterm election because his senior advisors believe that is the only chance the Democratic Party has to avoid a major electoral defeat. Evidently Obama believes impeachment could motivate the Democratic Party base to come out and vote.”

Egging on the mindless to do their Kings bidding? Yeah, I do think he’s that calculating. And yes, I think the Republicans are that stupid.

Imagine how much “right wing extremist” bashing the Liberal media could get out of that circus?

And that’s what they want. The results of King Fiat’s immigration policy, plus ObamaCare failures would fade to black as the Liberal Media when on an all out Nuclear Annihilation Attack against these “extremists”.

They would be Liberal slob heaven.

Vote you us, we aren’t that “extreme”. They are worse, but by Orwellian Doublethink comparison and 24/7 Alinsky bashing they just might win.

And that is all that matters.

The country and it’s people sure as hell don’t.

But I doubt “jar jar” Boehner and company smart enough not to take the bait. And there is a nagging doubt in the back of my mind that says that they want to deliberately lose but look “patriotic” and “strong” while doing it.

That voice won’t go away.

Stockman observed that rather than begin impeachment proceedings now, what the House of Representatives should do is to take away money from the Obama administration.

“The only way we’re going to stop Obama from opening the border is to take away the money he needs to operate,” Stockman concluded. “What we should do is shut down the White House.” (WND)

The House controls the money. Use that power, if your smart enough and brave enough because the Liberal will come at you with Annihilation in their eyes.

The beautiful thing about the Left is that they’ve trained the general public, via the public school system for the last four decades, to believe their blather; and thus anyone who disagrees with “them” is deemed by their ubiquitous foot soldiers to be the scourge of the earth.

Which brings me to their latest bunkum they’ve been bantering about, namely, if you aren’t cool with this tsunami of illegals then you must hate babies and Latinos. Yep, you are an infantophobe and a xenophobe and you must repent, you evil spawn of Satan.

Y’know, if it were just a bunch of nursing infants and their milking mamasitas that are pouring through the mesquite and prickly pear down on the Rio Grande, I might feel a little weird about wanting to send them back to their dreaded casa in their suck-ass country. But what I keep seeing, via the images that have slipped through the cracks of the heavily guarded media, is not a bunch of babies. That is, unless of course, the definition of “baby” has changed to include scruffy gangbangers who’re sporting more tats than a Maori warrior.

Another thing that’s difficult to swallow in their heavily invested and publicly foisted fairy tale is, according to law enforcement and white crackers like the “suspicious” Governor Rick Perry, if that is indeed his real name, is that these “poor babies and their mommies” have committed 8000 rapes and 3000 murders in the last five years in Texas alone. So, if we are to believe the Left regarding who’s coming over the border, then that sure is strange behavior for infants and their nursing moms. (Doug Giles)

So “impeachment” is precisely what they want you do. Go ahead, make their day!

The King’s Rule

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Among the many costs of the Barack Obama presidency is an intentional corrosion for its own political gain of public faith in so many American institutions, among them Congress, the Supreme Court and the media.

If numerous sectors of society are feuding or distrustful of each other, then a well-controlled central authority like a chief executive can more easily rule the pieces. It’s classic Chicago politics, the way the mayor there controls the city’s feuding neighborhood fiefdoms of Democrat pols and workers.

We’re going to examine the American media today and urge some temperance and caution in the now endemic condemnation of the much-reviled MSM for the country’s own self-interest.

To be honest, it has done much to earn widespread public distrust. This stems from the inherent institutional and individual arrogance of its long-time monopoly over the information flow through broadcast networks and large daily newspapers.

And from its laser focus on conflict as “news” and its do-good social agendas that instinctively turn to government intervention instead of far more effective individual responsibility and action. The traditional media’s disconnection from its audience became even more starkly visible with the Internet’s welcome explosion of information sources, many of them responsible.

Reporters Without Borders released its annual World Press Freedom Index the other day. Much of it was predictable. Few would be surprised that China, Syria and North Korea inhabit the bottom rungs of press freedom.

What was shocking to those of us who favor a strong, independent — and, yes, imperfect — media as a constitutional check on government’s power was the ranking of the United States, the world’s largest economy and most enduring democracy.

The U.S. during the fifth year of Obama’s reign plummeted 13 spots to 46th in the world, right between — are you ready? — Rumania and Haiti. The group based that embarrassing ranking largely on the Obama administration’s unusually determined efforts to curb dissent and plug and track down leaks. (For the five countries deemed most free, scroll to the bottom.**)

Not all leaks are bad. With a twinkle in his eye, a knowing politician once authorized me to leak government information with the order: “See that you suppress this widely.”

Trying to gain dominance over each 24-hour news cycle, the Obama administration leaks like a sieve with the advantageous info it wants out — a new cabinet member, EPA policy shift, some nickel-and-dime small ball gimmick Obama intends to announce to placate a segment of his base. None of this is unique to him.

And no president or wannabe likes un-orchestrated leaks.

But no other administration in recent memory has gone to the lengths of this one to plug leaks, catch leakers and intimidate would-be news sources.

Atty. Gen. Eric Holder even signed a court document certifying that a Fox News reporter was a criminal co-conspirator, when he wasn’t, in order to obtain authority to wiretap him, his emails and his parents’ phone to track the reporter’s source.

Then, under oath, Holder told Congress he could not contemplate ever doing such a thing.

Obama is notorious for dodging responsibility, professing ignorance of a problem or blaming others.

In his Super Bowl interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, a jolly Obama virtually dismissed the IRS scandal of intimidating conservative groups as a bevy of “bone-head decisions” by confused local agents free of even a “smidgen” of corruption. And the president as victim implied that Fox News harps on the case to drive its own anti-administration agenda.

This from the same cynical mouth that less than nine months ago denounced the same affair as an outrageous abuse of power, promising a thorough investigation to ensure it never ever reoccurred.

Now that the Obama crowd has separated media from many who once trusted it, comes an even more dire threat.

The Federal Communications Commission this spring will launch a nationwide “study” of newsroom values, priorities and processes to see if they meet a list of government “critical information needs.” This will also involve print media over which the FCC has heretofore had no authority under the Constitution.

This process, similar to ones employed by Communist regimes behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War, is not designed to gather any information at all. It’s designed to sow doubt, fear and intimidate traditionally independent news media into self-censorship, which can be a very powerful tool limiting critical news coverage.

And — oh, look! — there’s an important midterm election coming in nine months.

Americans need not trust, respect or even like the nation’s disparate news media to see this campaign for what it is: A bold political move by an omnivorous government that threatens, like a clogged human artery, to limit the flow of independent information envisioned by the Founding Fathers as so essential to the daily health of this democracy. (IBD)

The Roots of Success Part 1

In 2008, Barack Obama promised, “We’re going to work with your employer to lower the cost of your premiums by up to $2,500 a year.”

Of course, like everything else he promises, he’s LYING. But the American people are too narcissistic and too stupid to know that. And too programmed to put two-and-two together Now.

But middle-income consumers face an estimated 30% rate increase, on average, in California due to several factors tied to the healthcare law.

Some may elect to go without coverage if they feel prices are too high. Penalties for opting out are very small initially. Defections could cause rates to skyrocket if a diverse mix of people don’t sign up for health insurance.

Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.

“She said, ‘I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it,'” Kehaly said

“This is when the actual sticker shock comes into play for people,” said Gerald Kominski, director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. “There are winners and losers under the Affordable Care Act.”

Fullerton resident Jennifer Harris thought she had a great deal, paying $98 a month for an individual plan through Health Net Inc. She got a rude surprise this month when the company said it would cancel her policy at the end of this year. Her current plan does not conform with the new federal rules, which require more generous levels of coverage.

Now Harris, a self-employed lawyer, must shop for replacement insurance. The cheapest plan she has found will cost her $238 a month. She and her husband don’t qualify for federal premium subsidies because they earn too much money, about $80,000 a year combined.

“It doesn’t seem right to make the middle class pay so much more in order to give health insurance to everybody else,” said Harris, who is three months pregnant. “This increase is simply not affordable.”

Blue Shield of California sent termination letters to 119,000 customers last month whose plans don’t meet the new federal requirements. About two-thirds of those people will experience a rate increase from switching to a new health plan, according to the company.

HMO giant Kaiser Permanente is canceling coverage for about half of its individual customers, or 160,000 people, and offering to automatically enroll them in the most comparable health plan available.

The 16 million Californians who get health insurance through their employers aren’t affected. Neither are individuals who have “grandfathered” policies bought before March 2010, when the healthcare law was enacted. It’s estimated that about half of policyholders in the individual market have those older plans. (LA Times)

So they won’t see the 1000 lb gorilla in the room and vote for Liberals again. Because, it’s not hurting them, after all.

And if it doesn’t hurt them personally, it’s ok.

All these cancellations were prompted by a requirement from Covered California, the state’s new insurance exchange. The state didn’t want to give insurance companies the opportunity to hold on to the healthiest patients for up to a year, keeping them out of the larger risk pool that will influence future rates.

Forcing good consumers out of their plans and their doctors to make the exchange look better.

Gee, Obama didn’t promise that either. 🙂

Here’s another one:

Forbes: A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.

HHS didn’t want users to see Obamacare’s true costs

“Healthcare.gov was initially going to include an option to browse before registering,” report Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky in the Wall Street Journal. “But that tool was delayed, people familiar with the situation said.” Why was it delayed? “An HHS spokeswoman said the agency wanted to ensure that users were aware of their eligibility for subsidies that could help pay for coverage, before they started seeing the prices of policies.” (Emphasis added.)

Misdirection? Never sen that from Obama and his Alinsky-ites before…:)

The answer is that Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy people with average incomes get health insurance. It was designed to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line, and those with chronic or costly medical conditions.

P.T. Barnum couldn’t have done better.

The middle class that liberals go on about endlessly will pay more for their insurance so the poor can have more.

After all, socialist societies don’t have a middle class, do they… 🙂

Wayne Root: The GOP needs to stop calling ObamaCare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a gigantic flop, or failure. It’s NOT. 

Message to the GOP: This isn’t a game. This isn’t tiddly-winks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism. 

This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism. 

It’s not a failure, it’s Obama’s grand success. 

It’s not a “trainwreck,” ObamaCare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government.

Obama’s hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky — a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinksky’s stated advice was to call the other guy “a terrorist” to hide your own intentions. 

To scream that the other guy is “ruining America,” while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again…in every sentence of every speech…that you are “saving the middle class,” while you are busy wiping out the middle class.

The GOP is so stupid they can’t see it. There are no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack.

I said that years ago, myself.

The real sign that this is a purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration members and Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and anyone who wants to stop ObamaCare “terrorists.” 

There’s the clue. Even the clueless GOP should be able to see that.

But they are too busy agreeing with them.

And the people are too programmed by “Vote for me the other guy’s an asshole”

The asshole being the person who disagrees with the Alinsky Liberal!

Here’s to the successful launch of ObamaNation.

To be continued tomorrow.
