Gone-But-Not-Forgiven

Hope n’ Change doesn’t actually have a lot to add to today’s cartoon because it pretty much sums up exactly what we believe the Obamacare strategy to be – a deliberate fustercluck designed to force people into an unworkable system and destroy the private insurance agency. The eventual goal being a single payer system for everyone…and cost-saving euthanasia (“painkillers not pacemakers” in the president’s words) for the old, infirm, and inconvenient.”

Barnhardt: “There is Nothing New Under the Sun. Know Your History”

Here is a little history from Ann Barnhardt.

FDR

Did you know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt used the US Army to forcefully remove the CEO of Montgomery Ward in Chicago? Did you know that he seized the Philadelphia Transportation Company and installed US Army Major General Philip Hayes as CEO?

Barnhardt has studied history, unlike today’s public school students. She reminds us of the actions taken by what she calls the most dangerous President until Barack Obama.

If FDR had been ten years younger than he was and had lived, I honestly think that he could have become a full-blown dictator. FDR died in April of 1945 after having just been sworn in to his FOURTH term as President. Harry Truman then became president and after the conclusion of the War appointed the Hoover Commission which promptly recommended the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution which limited Presidents to two terms. Truman knew that we had dodged a bullet with Roosevelt and made certain that a tyrannical dynasty like FDR’s would never happen again.”

Of course in these days of instant communication and nearly instant transportation it wouldn’t take four terms to complete the ‘Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America’.

Eric Holder Publicly Threatens Congressman Gohmert

Holy crap! The Attorney General is threatening a sitting Congressman. The Obama administration is getting bolder and more confrontational.

Holder to Gohmert on Contempt: ‘You Don’t Want to Go There, Buddy’

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Eric Holder clashed with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, telling Gohmert, “You don’t want to go there” when Gohmert suggested “contempt” was “not a big deal” to Holder.
“You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?” Holder told Gohmert.”

Reminds me of this image:

Update:

HOLDER: GOHMERT DISAGREEMENT EXAMPLE OF UNPRECEDENTED RACISM AGAINST HIM AND OBAMA

At Al Sharpton’s annual National Action Network Annual convention, Attorney General Eric Holder spoke about civil rights and referenced his back-and-forth at Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, with Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX)…

“I have been proud to stand along side of you in supporting efforts to advance the cause of justice that has always been at the center of this , this administrations work I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way …forget about me… forget about me , you look at the way the Attorney General of the Untied States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me what Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment ”

“Florida Senate Demands a “Convention of the States” to Stop Obama”

Is this getting traction in other states?

One of the most exciting movements to restore liberty going on at the state level is the growing demand for an Article V “Convention of the States” to bypass Congress and draft constitutional amendments to restore our Republic to the design the Framers envisioned.

Term limits, balanced budgets, limited executive power, and other items are on the top of most activists’ agendas for a potential amendment-drafting convention.

Already, the legislatures of Alabama and Georgia have signed onto this proposal and demanded a convention to limit the power of the federal government, which has grown even larger and more intrusive under Obama.”

Didn’t Make The Obamacare Deadline? No Insurance For You.

There are a lot of details in all those thousands of pages. Pelosi was right. Now we’re finding out what was in the bill.

From the AP via Yahoo:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s more fallout from the health care law: Until now, customers could walk into an insurance office or go online to buy standard health care coverage any time of year. Not anymore.

Many people who didn’t sign up during the government’s open enrollment period that ended Monday will soon find it difficult or impossible to get insured this year, even if they go directly to a private company and money is no object. For some it’s already too late.

With limited exceptions, insurers are refusing to sell to individuals after the enrollment period for HealthCare.gov and the state marketplaces. They will lock out the young and healthy as well as the sick or injured. Those who want to switch plans also are affected. The next wide-open chance to enroll comes in November for coverage in 2015.

It’s a little-noted consequence of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, which requires nearly all Americans to be insured or pay a fine and requires insurers to accept people with health problems.”

Obama Draws Red Line With China

Heh. How well do you think that will work?

From the Puff Ho: U.S. Warns China Not To Attempt Crimea-Style Action In Asia

TAIWAN-JAPAN-CHINA-DIPLOMACY-DISPUTE

WASHINGTON, April 3 (Reuters) – China should not doubt the U.S. commitment to defend its Asian allies and the prospect of economic retaliation should also discourage Beijing from using force to pursue territorial claims in Asia in the way Russia has in Crimea, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

Daniel Russel, President Barack Obama’s diplomatic point man for East Asia, said it was difficult to determine what China’s intentions might be, but Russia’s annexation of Crimea had heightened concerns among U.S. allies in the region about the possibility of China using force to pursue its claims.

“The president of the United States and the Obama administration is firmly committed to honoring our defense commitments to our allies,” he said.”

Yawn. Pretty soon all this talk of red lines is going to put me to sleep. There is nothing behind it and everyone in the world knows it.

“Obamacare Takes a Life”

This is all part of the plan. After a few more people die due to Obamacare there will be an outcry for something different. There will no longer be health insurers. The only thing left to do will be single-payer, government run universal health care.

Las Vegas (CBS LAS VEGAS) – Just days after the deadline to enroll for insurance coverage through Nevada Health Link, the first class-action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of residents who say they signed up and paid their premiums – but were never given coverage.

Law firm Callister & Associates filed the lawsuit on behalf of Larry Basich, who signed up for state health insurance and paid premiums as far back as November, but then was not covered following a Jan. 3 triple bypass procedure that saw his $400,000 in medical expenses passed between the wrong insurance companies, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court of Nevada on Tuesday alleges gross negligence and failure to do due diligence against the state of Nevada, the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange (which runs Nevada Health Link), and the company that won the contract to build the exchange, Xerox.”

“Obama Food Police Propose Sending Daily Text Messages to Fat People”

This is so filled with images. I don’t mean about overweight people. I mean about the ‘Boards’ who decide who is fat, how much overweight you are before you are labeled obese, and what can be done about those who lose their excess pounds. ‘Boards’ in positions like that Always become corrupt. But maybe that is the whole idea.

I can think of few ways to anger potential voters that would be more effective than nagging them every day about their weight.

fat bastard

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will meet soon and discuss new recommendations for healthy eating. One suggestion is to send daily text messages to fat people.

The Obama administration plans to send text messages to fat people and offer online weigh-ins to help the country’s obese population get down to what a cartel of career academics considers to be a healthy weight.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee–the folks responsible for bringing you the food pyramid–is in the midst of a series of meetings that will determine the government’s official recommendations for healthy eating. The committee meets every 5 years, and this time, the Obama administration has stacked it exclusively with professors from America’s finest ivory-tower institutions. And these professors have a delicious casserole of nanny-statism to serve you.”

How Bad Were The Obamacare Numbers Fudged?

Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare – but study shows just 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up!

Liar

Liar

Once again we must get the news from outside the United States. From the UK Daily Mail:

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America’s health care system ‘a lot better’ in a Rose Garden press conference.

But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality.

Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.”

Tell Me That Obamacare Isn’t Designed To Fail

There isn’t even any interest in staffing it – or working for it.

More than half of top posts in key Obamacare agency are vacant or held by ‘acting’ caretakers

606x404-d0d9eaa30f16e651b693638718e8018d

Eighteen of the 32 top management jobs in the federal agency that is “ground zero” for running Obamacare are either vacant or filled on an acting basis.

The agency is the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight. Its problems start at the top.

Gary Cohen’s last day as CCIIO’s deputy administrator after less than two years on the job will be March 31, the latest departure from the agency.

Including Cohen’s position, more than half of the most important jobs in CCIIO are either vacant or held by caretaking “acting directors.”

A Brief View Of A Progressive Utopia

This short video was made in a Soviet grocery store in the 1980′s. It illustrates several things. The first thing that you see is how little was available to the shoppers. Then there is the quality. The women at the meat counter find opened packages. They smell them to see if the product is spoiled.

Toward the end you begin to see in the eyes of the shoppers what is meant when someone says we are becoming Russians. Their eyes tell us that they have seen this all before – many times. They also know that it will always be this way. It fills you with sadness.

A fairly common experience for Russian citizenry under the old socialist system in the USSR. Truly a Progressive paradise.

Give Obama what he wants and this is what we’ll all get.

The dumbed-down masses today being brainwashed in Left-wing universities across America are not taught the truth about what full-blown socialism or communism does to a society.

Talk to anyone who lived in the Soviet Union during the cold war years and they can attest to the miseries of this unworkable and failed system of government.”

fart cows As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations.

This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990.

The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas.

“Carville: I Wouldn’t Advise Landrieu to Campaign With Obama”

James Carville

James Carville

Landrieu or any other Democrat. Obama is toxic.

Barack Obama, Mary Landrieu

Landrieu is tainted by her vote for Obamacare. She wouldn’t vote for it at first and held out for some goodies. The Obama team gave them to her so she voted yes. Reminds me a lot of a quote that is attributed to Winston Churchill:

Churchill: “Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?” Socialite: “My goodness, Mr. Churchill… Well, I suppose… we would have to discuss terms, of course… ”
Churchill: “Would you sleep with me for five pounds?”
Socialite: “Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!” Churchill: “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price”

Heh.

Democratic strategist James Carville says he wouldn’t likely advise Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu to take President Barack Obama with her as she campaigns for a fourth term this year.

A new AP-GfK Poll shows 59 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s handling of his job, a record high for the poll, so few Democrats, especially those in red states, have been enlisting the president’s help.

Landrieu was one of several Democrats who were accused by Republicans of getting deals for their states in exchange for their support of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Those deals, dubbed the “Louisiana Purchase” in Landrieu’s case and the “Cornhusker Kickback” in the case of Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, helped pass the bill, but have come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats such as Landrieu.”

Obama Whines About Putin’s Move On Ukraine

"Please stay out of Ukraine" "No"

“Please stay out of Ukraine”
“No”

From CBS News:

You would have thought that after a couple of decades that there’d be an awareness on the part of any Russian leader that the path forward is not to revert back to the kinds of practices that, you know, were so prevalent during the Cold War but, in fact, to move forward with further integration with the world economy and to be a responsible international citizen.”

Mr. Obama said Putin considers the breakup of the Soviet Union to be “tragic.”

“There’s a strong sense of Russian nationalism and a sense that somehow the West has taken advantage of Russia in the past and that he wants to, in some fashion, reverse that or make up for that.

“What I have repeatedly said is that he may be entirely misreading the West,” Mr. Obama continued. “He’s certainly misreading American foreign policy. We have no interest in encircling Russia and we have no interest in Ukraine beyond letting the Ukrainian people make their own decisions about their own lives.”

Now there’s some strong talk. Here’s some more.

Mr. Obama wouldn’t be specific about what the U.S. would do if Russia pushed further into Ukraine, but he did say that there would be more economic sanctions brought to bear, not just by the U.S. but by the world community.”

The White House Calls This A Milepost

Reuters via Yahoo:

“Obamacare enrollment tops six million as deadline looms: White House”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than 6 million people have now signed up for private insurance plans under President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law known as Obamacare, reflecting a surge in enrollments days before the March 31 deadline, the White House said on Thursday.

The milestone gives the White House some ammunition to counter Republican critics, who have described the program as an expensive flop in the build-up to midterm congressional campaigns in November, when Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is at stake.”

I call it a drop in the bucket. Six million out of more than 300 million Americans is two percent – and that’s if the numbers are right.

This administration, with the assistance of the Democrats, the media, and many Republicans, has fudged numbers at every turn. Whether it is ACA sign-up figures or votes, the fraud continues to grow.

We had a post the other day about a woman who admitted to voting for Obama six times in 2012. How many fraudulent O-care sign-ups are there? And how many of these alleged policies have been paid for? And now we find out that people who think they are signed up and have paid their premiums are not able to get care.

The Affordable care act has never been designed to work. It does not provide health care and is not affordable.

Senator Harry Reid said people were lying about the trouble they were having with the ACA. We know who the real liars are. They are the people like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al.

And here is a report from CNN that also does not include his political affiliation.

FBI agents on Wednesday arrested the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, for allegedly taking tens of thousands of dollars worth of bribes “in exchange for the use of his official position,” the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Patrick D. Cannon, 47, faces federal charges of theft and bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, honest services wire fraud and extortion under color of official right, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins of western North Carolina.

The Charlotte mayor’s office declined a CNN request for comment. However, CNN obtained a copy of Cannon’s resignation letter, sent to City of Charlotte Manager Ron Carlee and City Attorney Bob Hagemann.”

There have been more and more Democrat officials arrested lately. Below is the story of Leland Yee, a state Senator from California.

It’s surprising that the Obama FBI is even looking into these people. Musta been a mistake.

“Obama to Kill Tomahawk, Hellfire Missile Programs”

tomahawk missile

Missiles bad. EBT cards good.

President Barack Obama is seeking to abolish two highly successful missile programs that experts say has helped the U.S. Navy maintain military superiority for the past several decades.

The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy.

In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number will then drop to zero in 2016.

The Navy will also be forced to cancel its acquisition of the well-regarded and highly effective Hellfire missiles in 2015, according to Obama’s proposal.”

“Putin establishes military bases in Latin America”

300px-Soviet-R-12-nuclear-ballistic_missile

Here we go again. Remember when the Soviet Union tried to set up missile bases in Cuba? It was October, 1962. John Kennedy was US President. He took action. He blockaded Cuba with Navy ships and succeeded in stopping the USSR from installing nuclear-tipped rockets ninety miles from the United States.

What will Obama do?

Away from the conflict in Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin is quietly seeking a foothold in Latin America, military officials warn.

To the alarm of lawmakers and Pentagon officials, Putin has begun sending navy ships and long-range bombers to the region for the first time in years.

Russia’s defense minister says the country is planning bases in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, and just last week, Putin’s national security team met to discuss increasing military ties in the region.

Gen. James Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command said there has been a “noticeable uptick in Russian power projection and security force personnel” in Latin America.

“It has been over three decades since we last saw this type of high-profile Russian military presence,” Kelly said at the March 13 hearing.

According to Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), there are 10 countries in Latin America that currently have no U.S. ambassador because they either haven’t been nominated yet or confirmed, a sign that the region is seen as a low priority.”
