“Obamacare Architect: ‘Be Prepared to Kiss Your Insurance Company Good-Bye Forever’”
The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, was not designed to make health care affordable. Nor was it designed to provide health care. It was designed to destroy the health insurance industry. Now one of the chief designers of the act says exactly that:
Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the architects behind Obamacare, is now claiming that “insurance companies as we know them are about to die.” Critics of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law have long alleged that one of the real goals of the law was to put private insurance companies out of business.
“The good news is you won’t have insurance companies to kick around much longer. The system is changing,” Emanuel writes in an op-ed on New Republic. “As a result, insurance companies as they are now will be going away. Indeed, they are already evolving. For the next few years insurance companies will both continue to provide services to employers and, increasingly, compete against each other in the health insurance exchanges.”
Due to Obamacare, “new actors will force insurance companies to evolve or become extinct,” he continues. Instead, new groups called “accountable care organizations” (ACOs) must start competing directly in the health care exchanges for exclusive contracts with employers.”

Cowardly Secretary of State John Kerry on confronting Russia about the Ukraine incursion:
“President Obama and I want to make it clear to Russia and to everybody in the world that we are not seeking confrontation.”
Like other groups and other countries they have learned how to get their way with him. They threaten him and he gives in. This is how the cronyism works. It’s certainly how Chicago and Detroit work.
The headline at POLITICO reads:
National Council of La Raza leader calls Barack Obama ‘deporter-in-chief’”.
President Barack Obama has lost the nation’s largest Latino advocacy organization.
The National Council of La Raza is set to declare Obama “the deporter-in-chief” and demand that he take unilateral action to stop deportations.
NCLR, the nation’s largest Latino advocacy organization, had been the last significant progressive grass-roots immigration-reform organization publicly defending the White House immigration stance. NCLR President Janet Murguía will on Tuesday night demand Obama put a halt to his administration’s deportations.
“For the president, I think his legacy is at stake here,” Murguía said in an interview in advance of NCLR’s annual Capital Awards dinner, where she will deliver a speech lambasting Obama’s deportation policy. “We consider him the deportation president, or the deporter-in-chief.”
We are, as the alleged Chinese curse says, living in interesting times. Would-be tyrants are cropping up everywhere in America. Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit, has noted, however, that they back off when the people resist their actions. In an article in USA Today he notes some examples:
First, in response to widespread protests last week, the Department of Homeland Security canceled plans to build a nationwide license plate database.”
“The DHS put out a bid request for a system that would have gone national, letting the federal government track millions of people’s comings and goings just as it tracks data about every phone call we make. But the proposal was suddenly withdrawn last week, with the unconvincing explanation that it was all a mistake.”
“On Friday, after more public outrage, the Federal Communications Commission withdrew a plan to “monitor” news coverage at not only broadcast stations, but also at print publications that the FCC has no authority to regulate. The “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN (pronounced “sin”) involved the FCC sending people to question reporters and editors about why they chose to run particular stories.”
“Meanwhile, in Connecticut a massive new gun-registration scheme is also facing civil disobedience.
As J.D. Tuccille reports: “Three years ago, the Connecticut legislature estimated there were 372,000 rifles in the state of the sort that might be classified as ‘assault weapons,’ and 2 million plus high-capacity magazines. … But by the close of registration at the end of 2013, state officials received around 50,000 applications for ‘assault weapon’ registrations, and 38,000 applications for magazines.”
Not mentioned but equally telling is the reaction of the public to the harsh gun control laws passed by Democrats in the Colorado Legislature. The result was a successful recall of the ringleaders.
One might doubt that tyrants will back off if the people react strongly but observe how the Obama administration has reacted to threats from abroad. In every case they say a few halfway petulant things, do nothing, and declare success. Why would it be any different at home?
Dave Blount, writing about this subject for Absolute Rights, makes this accurate observation:
Despite the promised “fundamental transformation,” we are still Americans, and we are still capable of defending our liberties, so long as we choose to risk comfort and safety as required. The government knows this or it would not back down when challenged.
But every retreat on the part of tyranny is temporary. The NSA will track every car, the FCC will shape every broadcast, and the federal government will first register then confiscate every privately owned firearm as it soon as it becomes clear that enough of us would opt for the cowardly comfort of passivity rather than pay the price to be free.”
Yes they will not give up. They may retreat and wait for a new opportunity to present itself. That is exactly why we Americans must remain vigilant and determined to act.
“… We Are Armed… And Are Familiar With the Finer Points of Marksmanship.”
It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to understand that the enforcement of this law can only come at the barrel of a gun. Therefore, we can conclude that we may soon see SWAT-style raids on the homes of suspected law breakers. Because we’re talking about gun confiscation, you can be fully assured that the state will not be knocking nicely, and they won’t be asking residents to exit their homes.
They’re going in full force.
But Americans simply don’t take well to being told what to do, especially as it relates to their Second Amendment rights.”
Some of the people there are indeed taking this seriously.
This is deadly serious stuff, this foray into an undiscovered country that you have so blithely entered upon, like blind men and women tap dancing in a minefield you scarcely comprehend. Fully eighty-five percent of the people you targeted with the law — the people that YOU AND YOU ALONE made into lawbreakers — have just told you by their noncompliance to take your unconstitutional law and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Does that not tell you ANYTHING? These people are ARMED.They are familiar with the finer points of marksmanship. They are principled in a way that perhaps only the Founders would understand — at the risk of their own lives. So what part of “Oh, HELL no” don’t you understand? You have been playing with titanic forces. You are going to send armed agents of the state to their doors to work your collective and collectivist will upon THEM? You have unintentionally sown the wind and if things go predictably south you will reap the whirlwind.”

Brigade Combat Teams. From Wikipedia: “A brigade is a major tactical military formation that is typically composed of three to six battalions plus supporting elements. It is roughly equivalent to an enlarged or reinforced regiment. Three or more brigades constitute a division.”
So it sounds like they will lose two entire divisions.
The Pentagon’s fiscal 2015 defense budget proposal will cost the Army another six combat units, shrinking the active force to 28 brigade combat teams by 2019.
Prior to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s Feb. 24 announcement, the Army was already on track to shrink to 490,000 soldiers. The force reduction will eliminate about a dozen BCTs, bringing the active force down to 32 BCTs by early 2016.
This latest round of budget cuts will force the Army to cut another four active BCTs as well as two combat aviation brigades, according to an Army official with knowledge of the plan.
The end strength announcement was part of the larger budget roll out that Congress still needs to sign off on before President Obama can approve it.
In addition to combat brigades, the Army would also have to cut up to 20,000 soldiers from combat support units, an Army source who asked to remain anonymous told Military.com.
The Army currently numbers just over 520,000 soldiers. Cutting the active force to a size of 440,000 to 450,000 would shrink the Army to the smallest it has been since before World War II.”
So the number of unemployed will necessarily skyrocket.
“I am not a liar. Obama is the one who lied.”
Go for it.
Here Come The IRS Bullies. They’re not after just conservatives.
A ‘Shared Responsibility Payment’ is pure socialism.
President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obamacare individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.
In “Four Tax Facts about the Health Care Law for Individuals” the agency writes:
Your 2014 tax return will ask if you had insurance coverage or qualified for an exemption. If not, you may owe a shared responsibility payment when you file in 2015.
In “The Individual Shared Responsibility Payment- An Overview” the agency warns Americans they must prove they were covered each and every month of the year:
For any month in 2014 that you or any of your dependents don’t maintain coverage and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your 2014 tax return filed in 2015.”

Sipsey Street: “Connecticut Tyrants List, voluntarilary subscribed by the participants on 3 April 2013″
Mike Vanderboegh takes it to a whole ‘nother level. He posts a list of every Connecticut legislator that voted to outlaw semi-automatic rifles and their magazines. The list includes addresses.
The state of Connecticut is making lists of firearm owners to raid. It seems obvious to me that it is thus only fair to list those anti-constitutional tyrants who will have blood on their hands the moment the first Connecticut citizen is shot by the CT state police while carrying out their orders. I will be sending these folks my own email later today.
CT State Senators voting Yes on “An Act Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety, also known as Public Law 13-3 or Connecticut Senate Bill No. 1160,” 3 April 2013. List includes home addresses. Photos and home phone numbers of these tyrants are available here:http://www.cbia.com/ga/CT_State_Senators_List/-AZSENATE“
The entire list is also at Sipsey Street Irregulars. Both Senate members and House members.
They’ll do it, too. This is the Volkswagen plant where the workers voted against unionization. Of course the United Auto Worker’s union wants the vote reversed.
One week after losing a bid to organize workers at a Chattanooga, Tenn., Volkswagen factory, the United Auto Workers called on the National Labor Relations Board to void the election results and order a new one.
In a filing Friday afternoon with the federal labor law enforcement agency, the UAW said the election was tainted by interference from state Republicans lawmakers, particularly U.S. Sen. Bob Corker. The Republicans had warned the employees that voting for a union was not in their best interests or the factory’s.
UAW lost the election Feb. 14, when a final tally showed employees voted 712-626 against collective bargaining. The tally also showed 89 percent of eligible workers turned out for the three-day vote.”

I never thought I’d ever hear this but here it is. It came about with the FCC’s decision to send people into broadcast studios. That will stifle dissent and Stern knows it. Also, the merger of Sirius satellite radio wit XM satellite radio had to be approved by the FCC. Stern has seen the FCC for what it is.

Cuba’s starvation policy is a crime against humanity.
I just got back from a business trip to Mexico. While there, I met with some Mexicans who had recently traveled to Cuba. What they told me was shocking. The Cuban people are being held on the edge of starvation.
According to my Mexican friends, ordinary Cubans are not allowed to eat beef. Instead, what beef there is in Cuba is reserved for the nation’s rulers and for tourists who can pay for it with foreign exchange while staying at the all-inclusive resort hotels. It is in fact illegal to sell beef to a Cuban — not that any of them outside the ruling class would be able to buy much, since the average wage in Cuba is about 50 cents per day, or one-tenth of the minimum legal wage in Mexico. With this pittance, Cubans must subsist on the subsidized rations made available to them by the government. These comprise 5 pounds of rice, 5 pounds of sugar, 1 pound of salt, 10 ounces of beans, 8 ounces of cooking oil, 0.15 ounces of coffee mixed with unknown stuff that isn’t coffee, 6 ounces of very-low-quality fish, and 1 pound of a disgusting product made from unsalable animal parts, per month.”

Freedumb of the press:
Like Obamacare? Then you’re going to love Obamanews – the exciting new FCC initiative to make sure that decision-making in the nation’s newsrooms gets (ahem) “fixed” to assure that voters will hear only what they are supposed to hear.
The program, called the “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs” or CIN (presumably pronounced “sin”) for short, will place FCC “researchers” in newsrooms to examine how reporters, editors, and station owners decide which news stories to run, and why more female anchorwomen aren’t wearing tampon earrings (as was done on MSNBC) to protest the GOP’s War on Women.”
Did any of you think it would be any other way?
Democrat candidate for Congress Domenic Recchia (NY-11) calling for a “Barack Obama dynasty.”
A headteacher who expelled a six-year-old boy after he brought in Mini Cheddars for his packed lunch fed pupils food from McDonald’s, it was revealed today.
Jeremy Meek ordered the notorious junk food for youngsters at Colnbrook Church of England Primary School in Berkshire, just weeks before kicking out a pupil in a row over healthy eating.
Pupil Riley Pearson was expelled earlier this month following the fall-out over his lunchbox. His four-year-old brother Jayden also had his place at the pre-school withdrawn by the headteacher.
But it has now emerged that the school bought around 100 children McDonald’s meals for lunch after a break-in at the school at the end of the Christmas term had left the canteen out of action.
Riley’s father Tom Pearson said: ‘It is just so hypocritical and makes me really angry at their double standards. There were five dinner ladies working.
‘Why didn’t they go to the shop a few minutes’ away, get some bread and make some sandwiches if they are so concerned about healthy eating? McDonald’s is junk food, pure and simple.”

One way to reduce health-care costs is to kill the patients. The Times supports this.
“Extend assisted suicide to children? Belgium says yes; so should we.”
The Belgian government this week approved new measures allowing the euthanasia of terminally ill children, a decision that on first reading would make most of us gasp.
It is a distressing concept, and the idea of helping a child die sounds incredibly cold and morally and ethically unsound — until you dive into the issue. While it raises painful and conflicting emotions, and choices, the Belgians — who have pushed assisted suicide to the edge before — are on the right, groundbreaking track.
As one might expect, it was a highly controversial issue, and the bill was opposed by the Roman Catholic Church as well as some pediatricians.
The issue boils down to what steps should be allowed to alleviate the suffering of terminally ill patients who are in great pain and choose to end their lives at a timing of their own choosing, rather than waiting for nature (medically extended as it might be) to take its course. Five U.S. states recognize physician-assisted suicide, or “aid in dying,” as proponents call it. California is not among them, despite several attempts to get such laws through the legislature. The Times’ editorial board has gone on record supporting the right of terminally ill patients to end their lives on their own terms, and I hope state lawmakers — or voters — eventually agree.
And that right should extend to children, in tightly controlled circumstances and with legal protections. I suggest a system, much like the Belgians approved, in which the child (first and foremost), the child’s parents or guardians, the attending physician and a court-appointed lawyer, medical doctor or psychologist acting as the child’s agent all agree that assisting the death is the humane thing to do.

Yes, Virginia, actions have consequences. The Empire State has passed laws designed to be damaging to gun owners and gun makers. What did they think would happen?
Remington says no jobs will leave New York but a couple thousand new ones will be created in Alabama, not New York. Then, when the new plant in operational and the NY politicians ramp up the hassling Remington will have a bolt-hole.
Remington Arms Company, Inc., founded in 1816 in upstate New York, announced today they will build their new factory in Alabama and not the Empire state. Since New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) signed the SAFE Gun Control Act, multiple gun companies have left the state. And, now Remington will not build its new plant there.
Remington Outdoor Co. plans to open a 500,000-square-foot factory in Alabama that would employ 2,000 people, AL.com and the Military Times reported today.
The Military Times story says the expansion would not affect the gun company’s factory or jobs at the plant in Ilion, Remington’s oldest and largest manufacturing site. Remington employs about 1,300 people in the Herkimer County village.”

A perfectly selected term for what the Democrats are doing. Kneecapping was done by organized crime members against finks and traitors.
Wikipedia: “Kneecapping is a form of malicious wounding, often as criminal punishment or torture, in which the victim is injured in the knee. The injury is typically inflicted by a low-velocity gunshot to the knee pit with a handgun.”
Yet another example of how desperate (and clueless) Democrats are about the pending midterm ass-whuppin’….
Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the Internal Revenue Service to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races. In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly.
Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, has introduced legislation that would block the agency from implementing new rules until after the 2014 midterm election.
“The administration’s proposed rules openly target groups that are exercising their First Amendment rights. We cannot allow these draft regulations to go into effect,” he said in a statement.”
The Democrats continue to miscalculate and it will be their undoing.”
Civil disobedience in this scale has never been seen before. The Constitution State has become the first battle in the war for the Constitution. This will spread.
Connecticut Criminalizes The Second Amendment
In a massive display of civil disobedience, tens of thousands of state residents have refused to register what the left calls assault weapons, instantly making them criminals guilty of a felony.
The legacy of the Connecticut residents who used their privately owned firearms to help overthrow the tyrannical colonial rule of King George III, who probably considered their muskets the military-style assault weapon of the day, apparently lives on.
Connecticuters in the tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands have refused to comply with a law, adopted after the December 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, requiring them to register what gun-control advocates consider assault weapons by the end of 2013.
As the Hartford Courant reports, as of Dec. 31 some 47,916 applications for assault weapons certificates had been received by state police. By some estimates, this represented as little as 15% of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents.
Estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation, place the number as high as 350,000.”
How unfair. And racist, too. In some states people who have been convicted of felony charges may no longer vote. That unfairly restricts black voter participation.
That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder says.
I would think that those states that restrict felons from voting do so because they think people who commit felonious acts are not thinking straight. That makes sense… unless you are a Democrat.
In Florida, more than one in five black adults can’t vote. Not because they lack citizenship or haven’t registered, but because they have, at some point, been convicted of a felony.
The Sunshine State’s not alone. As in Florida, more than 20 percent of black adults have lost their right to vote in Kentucky and Virginia, too, according to the Sentencing Project, a group that advocates for reforms to sentencing policy that reduces racial disparities.
Three states — Florida, Iowa and Kentucky — ban anyone who has ever received a felony conviction from voting. But many other states have weaker disenfranchisement laws—ones that ban those currently serving sentences or those on parole or probation. And Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday called on them to rethink the “unnecessary and unjust” policies.”

From the Washington Post:
Ankeny police are defending the raid, saying they needed to use that approach to protect officers’ safety.
Ankeny police Capt. Makai Echer said officers knew at least one person in the house had a permit to carry a firearm. She said the department isn’t currently investigating how officers handled the search, nor does the department have a written policy for executing warrants.”
Not only are they defending the SWAT-style raid for suspected credit card fraud they are informing the world that they will use this kind of violence against any home that has a known gun owner living there. This is provocation. They will provoke a violent encounter.
And her actions. She is calling out the IRS, the FBI, and BATFE as well as Congressman Elijah Cummings by name for their bully tactics against her and her family.
King Street Patriots founder Catherine Engelbrecht, one of many conservatives who claim they were unfairly targeted by the IRS when applying for tax-exempt status, told Congress Thursday that she is “more determined ever than before to stand before you and to all of America and say that I will not retreat.”
“Know this,” she said, “my experiences at the hands of this government in the last five years have made me more determined ever than before to stand before you and to all of America and say that I will not retreat. I will not surrender. I will not be intimidated, and I will not ask for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”
In her prepared remarks, Engelbrecht said she refuses to “let a precedent be set that allows members of Congress, particularly Cummings, ranking member of the Oversight committee, “to misrepresent this governing body in an effort to demonize and intimidate citizens.”
“Three times, Representative Elijah Cummings sent letters to True the Vote, demanding much of the same information that the IRS had requested. Hours after sending letters, he would appear on cable news and publicly defame me and my organization. Such tactics are unacceptable,” she claimed.

Vilsack: Obama ‘Expects His Cabinet to Be Forceful and to Act’ on Climate Change Without Congress
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced Wednesday the establishment of “climate change hubs” in seven states – and three sub-hubs – that will assess and come up with a plan to help rural America deal with climate risks – all without congressional approval.
“The president’s been quite insistent in cabinet meetings and in private meetings that he expects his cabinet to be forceful and to act. We can’t wait for congressional action. So pursuant to his climate action plan, we established a number of climate change hubs,” Vilsack said during the White House press briefing.
The seven states are: New Hampshire, North Carolina, Iowa, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon. The sub-stations are located in California, Michigan, and Puerto Rico.
“These climate change hubs in the sub-stations are going to do a risk analysis of crop production and of forestry in terms of changing climates. It’ll establish the vulnerabilities that we have in each region of the country, will determine from those vulnerabilities strategies and technologies and steps that can be taken to mitigate the impacts and effects of climate change as well as adapting to new ways of agriculture,” Vilsack said.”

Or air conditioning in the summer? While campaigning for President the first time Barack Obama promised to make electric rates ‘Necessarily skyrocket’. He also promised to kill the coal industry and is killing the oil and natural gas industries. Now they are outlawing wood stoves.
EPA Bans Most Wood Burning Stoves In a Corrupt Scheme, Fireplaces Next
As of January 3rd, the EPA banned about 80% of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts in the United States. Stoves which are used to heat 12% of the homes in America and are especially needed in outlying rural areas. Fireplaces are also being looked at.
The EPA is attempting to reduce particle pollution with new rules. Instead of limiting fine airborne particulate emissions to 15 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) of air, the change will impose a maximum 12 μg/m3 limit. That is equivalent to a person smoking 3 to 4 cigarettes in a small confined space.
The draconian EPA regulations will be spread out, one will take place in March and the next in five to eight years. Stoves currently in use will not be affected but obviously, getting them repaired will become more and more difficult.”
Are they trying to make us want to live in internment camps?
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) just released its latest analysis of the country’s economic and budget outlook, and it’s a doozy. If you’re a Denver Broncos fan who watched in horror as your team disintegrated during the Super Bowl on Sunday, then you’ll have some idea of how Obamacare’s proponents will feel as they read this report.
Yes, it’s that bad.
1) Obamacare Will Destroy 2.5 Million Jobs By 2024
2) In 2024, There Will Still Be 31 Million People In The U.S. Without Health Insurance
3) Surprise! Millions Of People Who Liked Their Health Plan Will Lose Their Health Plan
4) Obamacare Reduces The Incentive To Find And Keep A Job
5) Your Paycheck Will Be Smaller Thanks To Obamacare

I don’t think Obamacare proponents will feel bad about the outcome. I think they knew all along that this was the plan.
Of course this report will be spun as the collaborative effort of those evil Republicans in Congress who are trying to hurt Obama.
