Obamacare: Barry Gets His Private Army (Ready Reserve Corps)(Updated)

(See Update At End Of Post)

I know it is impossible to forget Nancy Pelosi saying “We have to pass this bill to find out what is in it”, and now that we are able to finally read it, some very interesting facts are coming to light.  After reading the section below will there be any more arguments about repealing this fascist runner-up to the Patriot Act?

Ready? Read it all.

UPDATE:

According to World Net Daily:

Obamacare prescription: ‘Emergency health army’

Force subject to ‘involuntary calls to active duty’ during ‘public crises’

President Obama’s recently passed health-care reform legislation includes a surprise for many Americans – a beefing up of a U.S. Public Health Service reserve force and expectations that it respond on short notice to “routine public health and emergency response missions,” even involuntarily.

According to Section 5210 of HR 3590, titled “Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps,” the force must be ready for “involuntary calls to active duty during national emergencies and public health crises.”

The health-care legislation adds millions of dollars for recruitment and amends Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204), passed July 1, 1944, during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency. The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is one of the seven uniformed services in the U.S. However, Obama’s changes more than double the wording of the Section 203 and dub individuals who are currently classified as officers in the Reserve Corps commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.

The following is the previous wording of the act as of 2004, before Democrats passed the health-care legislation:


Wording of Section 203 of Public Health Service Act before Obamacare amendment

It appears that WND has the research down pat, but in the course of running around looking for information, the Monster, of course, stumbled down a couple of rabbit holes. Will still keep you updated on what I found.

  1. All commissioned officers shall be citizens of the United States, well isn’t that special, the officers need to be citizens but the leader does not . Do you suppose the officers can be felons, just as long as they are citizens?

    While I hope and pray a lot of this will be repealed those of us who are awake and see this have to suffer through the what if possibilities, while those who put him where he should not be are oblivious to all the chaos they have allowed to happen.

    The media can not spin what is in the bill no matter how hard they try, it is out there and even the Congress will eventually know what they voted for. It is going to be a very interesting mid-term and not one of those who voted for this bill can use the excuse they did not know what they voted for, as that will really finish them, politically speaking.

    • The Matrix is about to get alot bigger.

      The longer this drags on, the more the American people are going to see that his allegiances do not lie with us. I still am hoping for the perp walk moment.

  2. So does this mean they can inject us with a deadly virus or something by using this corps of people to force it on us? We better fight this thing tooth and nail. If your state is not on the list of lawsuits filed by State Attorney Generals yet, you had better call your Attorney General and put pressure on them.

    And what is it about “isolated, hardship and under served communities”? Watch out if you live in the country!

    I ask myself time and time again, how did we come to this? Why did we allow it to happen?

  3. Good comments, so far, but I’m reminded of nervous laughter — if ya know what I mean.

    A few months ago, it was like a dark cloud hanging over us & now I can’t find the words so I will say nothing other than “God Bless America”.

  4. i am going to read this as if it is to be a catastrophic emergency unit….that way i will sleep at nite…..

    something very interesting going on in the senate right now…..tom coburn objected to the unemployment extension coming to the floor for a vote unless his bill to fund it from stimulus funds was passed. the democrats defeated the funding bill, so they are at an impasse regarding the unemployment extension. the extension expires at the end of the month, so they have to address it before they leave for easter break. right now they can not even get a quorum to the senate floor to discuss/move forward…….they keep sending the sgt at arms out to round up absent senators….thus they are all stuck there until they get the quorum and until they agree to fund it.

    (per what i read earlier, bunning was going to take the lead on this again, but it was decided coburn would take lead. the other republicans are more actively supporting the action this time…….on a personal note, i think tom coburn is very hot…..especially when he is giving one of his rousing patriotic speeches…..)

    • yes that was one of the 29+ amendments the republicans put forth for the reconciliation bill. they were on the senate floor until almost 3am hearing the amendments and doing some of the initial voting……

      after all that work, they did not need any amendments to send the bill back to the house. the parliamentarian took care of that for them when he concurred with the republicans on two points of order. too bad the changes to the bill were minor……

  5. Uh… Did anyone even bother to read what this is amending? Although the author of this blog wisely didn’t include that in his post, you could have at least looked it up in the actual bill online. And while you’re at it, wikipedia “Uniformed Services of the United States.” They are forming a reserve corps of officers because this is amending the structure of a uniformed service, specifically adding a reserve element to an existing service that has been around since John Adams. Yes, they’re brownshirts… BECAUSE THEY WEAR THE NAVY’S KHAKI UNIFORM! This “private Obama army” is already lead by a surgeon general. Come on, people, do some research before you post…

  6. The Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service has been around since 1889. They are one of the 7 uniformed services of the US. see http://www.usphs.gov .
    The Commissioned Officers in the service provide health care to our military, those in prision, and serve as a ready trained Corps to meet public health and medical needs during times of man made and or natural disaster. There is nothing communist going on here. The Corps was limited by law to 6000 members, now there can be more members (you can learn the medical and or public health qualifications to join at http://www.usphs.gov) to better meet the needs of America’s people during times of natural disaster or terrorist attack. This is just giving the services what they’ve been asking for for decades.

    • Good post Toasty. We are not well known but… many who served proudly in the Armed Services are now serving proudly in the UnArmed Service of Public Health. We are not allowed to carry weapons by statute, even when we work in Federal Prisons. We work for the Surgeon General and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, NOT the Department of Defense! We primarily serve UNDERSERVED populations throughout the United States but also do humanitarian missions to Third World Countries. Several PHS officers were deployed to the recent earthquake in Haiti. We were also deployed during Hurricane Katrina

  7. This is just too f’ing scary. The Army/Navy/Marines/Air Force/Coast Guard/National Guard/Reserves just isn’t enough to keep the unruly masses in line? Now we need Obama’s private army to step in? Bet their uniform jackets will be brown.

    This part I find especially puzzling:
    ‘(2) REQUIREMENT.—All commissioned officers shall be citizens
    of the United States and shall be appointed without regard
    to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to
    the Classification Act of 1923, as amended.

    Appointed without regard to civil-service laws? Compensated without regard to the Classification Act of 1923? Does this mean these will be The Pretender’s handpicked army and no laws will have to be followed regarding who is appointed and how and the compensation they’ll receive?

    LM – if the SCOTUS doesn’t rule this whole POS bill unconstitutional and toss it all out, the move to Montserrat just got bumped up to NOW. Pack your bags, we’ll meet you there!

      • Please stop using the terms communist and fascist interchangably. They are more-or-less opposites.

        Communism is an extreme left ideology.
        Fascism is an extreme right ideology.

        Universal healthcare and high taxes is closer to communism. Big, unregulated insurance companies is closer to fascism. By all means pick one, but don’t mix the two up.

        Can you please tell all your right-wing buddies to stop making the same mistake. It’s just plain ignorant and makes Americans look stupid.

          • There is some debate around where fascism lies on the left-right scale. Since it is marked by collectivism and centralized economic control, some consider it on the left. But since it is also marked by romantic nationalism, ethnic intolerance and maintaining the status quo, many consider it on the right.

            American historian Robert Paxton describes it as follows:

            “a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.”

            Sounds like the Republican Party to me. Fox News is like Goebbels’ wet dream.

            Go away? That’s not exactly in the spirit of your founding fathers, now is it.

  8. Ok,

    Most of those who have commented must not know about the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service. The Corps is over 100 years old and has been serving proudly alongside our fellow uniformed personnel in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. There is also a commissioned corps for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). All seven (7) uniformed services have an Active Duty and Reserve Corps. This legislation that you are “freaking” out about will essentially alter the status of present commissioned officers in the Corps. It will convert all active duty officers in the Corps to the Regular Corps and eliminate the “active duty” Reserve Corps. Prior to this legislation, commissioned officers on active duty in the Corps had to apply for assimilation into the Regular Corps. They were then boarded and accepted into the Regular Corps (permanent corps of the USPHS). This legislation will also eliminate the limit on the number of officers in the Regular Corps which was previously set to 4000. So, educate yourselves and understand that this is not a “New Army” created by Obamacare. Learn more at USPHS.GOV

  9. Well…..we have two commenters that are leaving interesting tidbits of information which of course will prompt me to put aside the frakkin’ bank I am chasing and chase this topic for a while. Will keep you folks updated.

  10. Looked up commisioned corps of the US Public Health Service. I have never heard of these people ever. And I come from of a military family. What struck me as strange was the application part of their site. A drop down section asked how you found out about them– word of mouth,? google,? ahh publications,etc.? Do they have anything to do with the Defense Dept. It looks like they only answer to the dictator in chief.

    • More education is due! Because the Corps is only 6500 strong, a lot of people have not heard of us. Yes, including the majority of the military. The Corps lost its identity when they closed all the Public Health Service Hospitals after WWII. We are now an ALL commissioned corps (no enlisted people) which means we all have professional degrees i.e. Physicians, Nurses, Engineers, Scientists, etc. Corps personnel work for several agencies of the government to include Indian Health Service, CDC, NIH, FDA, Bureau of Prisons, and Immigration Health. Our chain of command includes someone you might have heard of…. The Surgeon General of the United States, currently Dr. Regina Benjamin. Arguably, the most famous SG of recent past is C. Everett Koop. The SG in turn works for the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

  11. jane (anonymous) you ignorant slut. Better do some checking on your history pal. They are all the same bullshit with different names. It’s called totalitarianism. It’s all the same and its killed 100s of millions dipshit!

    Hey I hear they have room in North Korea for you and your leftist buddies.

    • How does making fun of me help make your point, you donkey raping shit eater? 🙂

      You are right that collectivist ideologies always run the risk of leading to a totalitarian government. However, unwavering individualism leads to dog-eat-dog anarchy. Libertarianism doesn’t work on the face of it.

      For example, who will make sure that everyone gets access to clean water in a society driven only by “survival of the fittest”?

      The reason political science is so complex is because there are few easy answers. Casting issues only as extremes leads to ignorance and violence.

  12. WAIT A MINUTE!! READ IT AGAIN…..
    SEC. 5210. ESTABLISHING A READY RESERVE CORPS.
    Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204)
    is amended to read as follows

    SEE the word AMENDED? This means existing law before the health care bill.
    READ existing law: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/42/204)%20sec.%20203.html

    As pointed out….this goes way back in our history and signed into law by one of our founders John Adams.

  13. There seems to an agreement that not very many people know anything about these people. What bothers me is the fact that this has been stuck in a 2700 pg.(may be different now) bill with no explanation as to what this means to the average American-until after the fact. In other words, couldn’t we have been afforded some explanation before the passing? I am a civil person and like civil answers.With so much a stake, why shouldn’t we ask?

    • Time – you are serf – get over it! (snark) It’s the ‘of the aristocracy, by the aristocracy, and for the aristocracy”. Don’t you dare ask to know what’s in a 2700 page bill before it passed because you know we have to pass it to find out what is in it!

      On a serious note, MOST of the country is upset over this bill and it’s passage because of all the other crap the Dems rammed through – the hc bill wasn’t our first assault.

  14. Obama said he wanted a civil defense corps as well funded and as well armed as the armed services. So here you have it, Healthstapo!!

    Why doesn’t anonymous become alarmed with, …..”and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws”?

    The Federals have determined they can make up the law as they go…(recurring theme) per their discretion. Every American should be SCREAMING if not for themselves, their children and families.
    Some transparency……..this isn’t healthcare reform. This doesn’t belong in this bill……it just speaks volumes.

  15. Obama is following Hitler and Stalins blueprint for the takeover of America, his Ready Reserve Corps will surely be made up of Communist, Muslims, Black Militants, and every other form of miscreant he can find. I’m also sure there loyalty will be sworn to Obama. He is forming his brown shirt army right under our very noses yet we continue to nothing but complain. Obama may be right about us being sheople. Where is the God, Guns and Guts that made America.

    We can either live in freedom or die as communist slaves, I fear the choice will soon have to be made, and I also fear that the 2010 elections will not change anything as they will steal the elections if necessary.

    Obama and Communism are winning!

  16. Facades and Charades: left vs. right, communism vs. capitalism, fascism vs. socialism, Dem. vs. Rep., “liberal” vs. “conservatism” etc. Who defined these idealogical terms? Tyrants at the top. These concepts have been fabricated to enslave by making people think in terms of “us” versus “them.” The scam began with the first post-Flood tyrant Nimrod, and has been operating ever since. “Follow the money, honey.” It has funded and shaped all conflicts in history as soon as the post-Flood ancients began mining precious metals and gems. There will never be a political solution to the world’s problems. All the problems have been engineered by the power elite throughout millennia. The Christian message is that only Jesus can save the world. Put your faith in Him rather than in mankind. I think that He will be ruling the world by the end of the decade ahead, as I have been studying this topic for over 20 years.

    This message is to show approval for what LogisticsMonster posted 3/25 9:14 p.m. The only “difference” between fascism and communism lies in the “legal” title to real assets. But when you follow the money, you see that “legal” title is just another layer of facade. The founding of 13 colonies and the subsequent “independent” nation was a scam. Certainly, real Christians came here to escape persecution, but the “movers and shakers” wore a veneer of Christian terminology to get the Christian vote.
