I dragged this video out of the vault because Daniel Hannan’s viewpoint of our Constitution and England’s socialized medicine are worth another listen. Y’all can ignore Beck at this point…(when I figure out why all the richest people in the world are trying to stuff their coffers and pockets in the face of a collapse, I’ll let you know. If you know, please enlighten us!)
Now, for Obamacare; I could be wrong, but I really do not think I am. I have been saying for months that this abomination of progressive control over our lives is going to get shoved through. It is the centerpiece of collapsing our Constitution. We still need a plan on how to get this democratic piece of shit repealed after the House passes the Senate version, and Obama skips the Senate reconciliation part and just signs the Senate bill into law. (See the bottom of this post for the update on that skipping process. And once again, Legal Insurrection gets credit for predicting this last week.)
Think I’m joking? The following bill was introduced by Zachary Space (D-OH) yesterday, and the text is not yet available. This bill is being slid into committee by a no name congressman who votes 94% of time along party lines. This bill also has NO cosponsors; assumption being ‘maybe they won’t notice’.
I am sure this will probably be worse than just it’s title. Remember Daniel Hannan saying that the National Health Service is the 3rd biggest employer in the world? England has 70 million citizens. We have over 300 million.
To direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services to develop a strategic plan to retrain displaced workers to become health care professionals serving areas with a shortage of such professionals, and for other purposes.
All the fumbling and bumbling that appears to be happening in the White House, House, and Senate is an act. These people have a plan and they aren’t letting anyone get in the way. Get ready for Obamacare.
(I’ll put up the text when it becomes available…which may be never considering how hard it has been to read the various health care bills.)
The other day I exposed the fact that Harry Reid switched the language in the House-passed H.R. 3590 Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009 and inserted the Senate version of the healthcare bill via a manager’s amendment in order to meet the requirement that all legislation raising taxes must originate in the House.
The Senate passed the revised bill with the healthcare language in it, and now the House must revote on the deceptively gutted changed bill because, according to the Constitution, the identical bill must pass both the House and Senate in order to be signed into law. And, once the Senate Health Care bill pass the House, President Obama will sign it right away.
The threat of reconciliation in the Senate is hollow. There isn’t going to be any reconciliation.
On January 31, 2010, before the House was set to take up the Senate bill, WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” stated:
“If the House would take up the Senate bill then that bill would go to the president’s desk,” Gibbs said.
For further confirmation, here is the audio of that exchange. Listen from about 4:20 to 5.00 and you will here Gibbs confirm that once the House passes the Senate’s version of the healthcare bill, it’s a done deal. No talk of reconciliation here, because reconciliation is not needed at all.
Ever heard the saying “any press is good press.” I mean really; how stupid are these people? I would not have touched this issue for a million bucks. I hope they keep stooping to new lows. If this is all they can attack her on, what is 2010 and 2012 actually going to look like?
Obama’s Chief Minister of Propaganda is de-lus-ion-al. Robert Gibbs is definitely applying the rule that if you tell a lie often enough, it may just be accepted as truth. He would like you to believe that Scott Brown was elected on the same anger and frustration that sent Barack Obama to the White House according to a Washington Post poll. Mr. Brown’s stance against the current policies of this administration has absolutely nothing to do withhis capture of the people’s seat in MA.
NOW would be the time to hammer your congressmen and senators about how much you OPPOSE Team O’s agenda. They are a bit more receptive to listening after the loss Coakley took last Tuesday.
Team O is in trouble, and Obama’s Chicago hacks know it. Their marxist agenda is on life support and he needs the “architect” of his 2008 victory to save Bambi from the American People. Only problem is; America is awake and PISSED. David has been brought back to brainwash the 20% liberal base of the Democratic Party into drinking the koolaid again, achieving the goal of control of 1/6th of the American economy through their socialist version of health care, and making Organizing For America a key component in the 2010 elections. The Borg version of health care isn’t going away so don’t take your eyes off that ball. Also, rest assured that the Obama Team is still not listening to the American people and will not be changing their marxist course because David Plouffe is all about how it looks and not how it really is, and he is the man who convinced 69 million to vote the liar into office. (You know how they like to divert attention; David Axelrod is window dressing.)
David Plouffe, the man who managed President Barack Obama‘s campaign, will be taking on an expanded role as an outside adviser to the White House, according to sources familiar with the plan, a move that comes just days after a stunning defeat for Democrats in a Massachusetts Senate special election.
Allies of the White House cast the Plouffe move as less about the Massachusetts election and more about the fact that the election year is heating up and Plouffe has more free time following the publication of his campaign memoir late last year. Still, the timing is sure to stoke speculation that the White House is seeking to shore up its political operation.
After managing Obama’s successful primary and general election races, Plouffe chose not to go into the White House — as so many of his campaign colleagues did — but rather return to the private sector and focus on writing his memoir of the campaign called “The Audacity to Win”. The book was released on November 3, 2009.
Plouffe did stay involved with Organizing for America, the operation formed in the wake of Obama’s victory to maintain the massive grassroots email and donor base built during the campaign. While OFA officials tout it as a success story there is increasing skepticism within the party about whether it has truly fulfilled its mission of bringing a grassroots army to bear on the President’s top priorities.
Plouffe has also remained in regular touch with the President and his political team. The President talks fairly regularly with David,” said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. “I know that it is somebody whose advice and counsel he both seeks regularly and believes David is an exceptionally smart advisor who understands the type of anger and frustration that he’s seen. ”
“Americans’ health and our nation’s long-term fiscal health depend on it. I know that the short-term politics are bad. It’s a good plan that’s become a demonized caricature. But politically speaking, if we do not pass it, the GOP will continue attacking the plan as if we did anyway, and voters will have no ability to measure its upside”
Click on the link above and see how Poofy is trying to rewrite history when it comes to health care, the stimulus package, and transparency. While you are reading about how the dems are going to create jobs, keep this in mind:
Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) — An exodus of discouraged workers from the job market kept the U.S. unemployment rate from climbing above 10 percent in December, economists said.
Had the labor force not decreased by 661,000 last month, the jobless rate would have been 10.4 percent, according to economists including David Rosenberg at Gluskin Sheff & Associates in Toronto and Harm Bandholz at UniCredit Research in New York.
“The actual unemployment rate is higher than shown by the official numbers,” Bandholz said yesterday after a Labor Department report released in Washington showed the economy unexpectedly lost 85,000 jobs in December while the jobless rate was unchanged.
About 1.7 million Americans opted out of the workforce from July through December, representing a 1.1 percent drop that marks the biggest six-month decrease since 1961, the Labor Department report showed. The share of the population in the labor force last month fell to the lowest level in 24 years.
And for those that can stomach Obama’s Chief Minister of Propaganda, Robert Gibbs is appearing on FoxNews Sunday tomorrow, and more than likely, will be live on the site.
Greta did an interview with Karl Rove which really had the feel of a discussion around any one of our kitchen tables. He was absolutely on fire in this interview covering topics ranging from Obama “lecturing us about the need for transparency and bi-partisanship” in regards to the healthcare bill, and then closed door meetings, Robert Gibbs being insulting and dismissive with the White House Press Corp over healthcare, Dorgan’s retirement, and the pitfalls of letting the dems railroad this bill through. Whatever you may want to say about Karl, (and I will forever be lethally annoyed with him for Bush’s 8 years), he speaks the truth tonight without any spin.
Robert Gibbs is basically telling the American people ‘You want an answer to that, drop dead. We’re not going to give you an answer.’
(6:55) The way this process has been handled, has undermined the peoples confidence in this bill, has undermined peoples confidence in the congress, it has undermined peoples confidence in this president. If the president were smart, he would insist on a more transparent, not less; he would insist on a more bi-partisan, not a less bi-partisan; he would insist on the American people have more time to absorb this, rather than less.
Just days ahead of the pResident’s trip to Hopenhagen to help hammer out some kind of deal that usurps American sovereignty and moola, Robert Gibbs takes a question from Major Garrett about the hacked ClimateGate emails, and totally sidesteps answering it by stating that “…Carol Browner addressed that last week; on the order of several thousand scientists have come to the conclusion that climate change is happening. I don’t think that’s anything that is, quite frankly among most people, in dispute anymore.” Don’t hold your breath waiting for Gibbs or Obama to volunteer that those scientists based their opinions on faked data.
I rarely tell somebody “I Told You So” because so often it comes back around to bite ya in the butt, but this is one situation where I am comfortable making the statement “We Told You!” about the coming Obama Idiocy because America is now so incredibly on fire due to decisions and programs that former administrations and congresses have made since Teddy Roosevelt that Obama and his socialist absorption of our entire economy is just the final straw on the camel’s back.
We told you this guy was a fraud and a poseur, and 69 million lemmings still decided that buying this guy’s marketed image as the savior was going to cut it.
Too bad reality is still kicking his butt. Too bad that the “Silent Majority” has woken up and is no longer silent. The rest of America is NOT going to be held hostage by those 69 million that rolled the dice and doubled down.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8 (see trends).
Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That’s the lowest level of total approval yet recorded. The President’s ratings first fell below 50% just a few weeks ago on July 25. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans disapprovealong with 65% of those not affiliated with either party. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats offer their approval. Most women (51%) offer their approval while most men (56%) disapprove. For more measures of the President’s performance, see Obama By the Numbers and recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.
Most voters (60%) continue to believe the nation is heading down the wrong track, although that number is unchanged from a week ago. But it’s down three points from the third week in January.
The percentage of voters who believe the country is moving in the right direction spiked at 40% in early May, hovered around 37% through June and now has been in the low- to mid-30s over the past month. The latest finding is up 14 points from the week Obama was elected president in November.
The numbers do not lie. We are still losing jobs, the unemployment percentage is wrong because it does not include people that are partially employed and on the way to full unemployment (like myself), the people that are no longer getting benefits but are still without a job, and those that have stopped looking. The commercial real estate bubble is about to pop, the banks are still underwater, this administration is trying to absorb almost all of the economy, David Axelrod is sending emails trying to counter the “un-American” protestors, and Robert Gibbs saying that the townhall protests are not indicative of what is really happening in America. Sorry Robbie – there are many more of us and we are telling everybody!
Kids, we are broke, broke, broke…and Obama and the Fed printing money like there is no tomorrow is NOT GOING TO HELP!
