For those of you who are keeping track of Barack Obama's ongoing goofs and missteps, here's another one: The Obama administration has announced it has pulled the plug on the unconstitutional snitch line Flag@whitehouse.gov. So all those emails you sent about me will be bouncing back to you.
I feel sorry for those of you who actually sent in an email snitching on your fellow Americans thinking you were doing something.
Following a furor over how the data would be used, the White House has shut down an electronic tip box — email@example.com — that was set up to receive information on “fishy” claims about President Barack Obama’s health plan.
E-mails to that address now bounce back with the message: “The email address you just sent a message to is no longer in service. READ MORE...
Many Americans are waking up to the fact that Barack Obama is a pathological liar who will say anything to win support for his Socialist agenda.
In this video posted by Patterico.com, Obama claims he never said he was a supporter of single payer universal health care. Yet there he was in 2003 saying just that.
In fact, he said it twice in the video. Obama's communications director, a former TV news journalist, called the allegations a lie. Even though the video evidence is clear that he said it and everyone in the room heard him say it.
The single payer pubic option provision in ObamaCare that Barack Obama has been pushing so hard for is officially dead, according to Senator Kent Conrad (D-N.D.):
"The fact of the matter is there are not [enough] votes in the United States Senate for the public option. There never have been. So to continue to chase that rabbit I think is just a wasted effort." READ MORE...
As Barack Obama continues to turn a deaf ear to Americans who oppose Universal Health Care, experts are growing concerned for his safety as hate groups intensify their rhetoric:
The Secret Service is investigating a Maryland man who held a sign reading "Death to Obama" and "Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids" outside a town hall meeting this week. And in New Hampshire, another man stood across the street from a Presidential town hall with his gun on full display.
"I don't think these are simply people who are mentally ill or off their rocker," Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, told ABC News of those behind the threats. "In a very real sense they represent a genuine reaction, a genuine backlash against Obama." Source
The controversial "end of life" counseling provision in the universal health care bill has been dropped competely. The House version of the health care bill allowed Medicare to reimburse doctors for voluntarily counseling the elderly on end of life issues (such as euthanasia) as an alternative to surgery and expensive treatments that might prolong their lives.
The provision caused a furor among the elderly and their family members who packed town hall meetings in their districts. Barack Obama added fuel to the fire when he blamed the elderly for the soaring costs of health care and questioned the "difficult moral issues" of expensive therapy and treatments for the elderly and terminally ill.
Obama's own grandmother underwent a hip replacement procedure shortly before she died of cancer because her dislocated hip caused her so much pain. But Obama indicated the procedure should not be covered under Medicare when he said, "I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she’s my grandmother."
He added, “The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health- care bill out here.”
Currently, family members of patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness are already counseled on Advanced Directives or Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders, which is a written order by a doctor that requires medical personnel to refrain from performing unnecessary procedures (such as CPR) to prolong a patient's life in the event of a cardiac or respiratory arrest.
But in the House version of the health care bill, the end of life counseling would be provided to patients who were not terminally ill or hospitalized, and critics felt it would lead to so-called "death panels" and talks of euthanasia.
After a week of lying and covering up his tracks, a leaked internal White House memo shows that Barack Obama did indeed go behind the backs of Americans to carve out a deal with the big pharmaceutical companies.
This is the same Obama who promised during his campaign to use the power of the government to drive down the costs of drugs to Medicare recipients. According to the memo, Obama agreed to protect the pharmaceutical companies from Congressional efforts to bargain for lower prices for drugs or to import lower priced drugs from Canada. Please read that last sentence again and let it sink in.
In return, the big drug companies agreed to cut $80 billion in projected costs to taxpayers and Medicare recipients over the next 10 years. That's $10 billion per year that the big drug companies don't mind coughing up because they stand to make hundreds of billions more per year from the outrageously high prices of drugs.
According to the daily Rasmussen tracking Poll, Barack Obama's overall approval ratings fell to 47% on Thursday -- the lowest ever recorded for Obama.
The poll reflects the deepening concerns of the American people over Obama's tone deaf campaigning for health care reform, which he now deceptively calls health insurance reform.
Americans are also worried about Obama's reckless spending and they fear his trillion dollar health care reform bill will add to the national deficit, which is forecast to be 4 times higher this year than it was last year.
Obama will spend more this year on the war in Afghanistan than Bush spent on the entire Iraq war.
Yesterday, Barack Obama held a staged "town hall" meeting in New Hampshire to push his Socialist health care reform agenda. Only now he's calling it the "health insurance reform" bill because, obviously, he's seen the poll numbers and he knows that more than 50% of Americans are opposed to health care reform.
Most of the audience in New Hampshire were pre-screened and bussed in. Local news affiliate WMUR even has the footage of the hand picked audience getting off the bus. Meanwhile, anyone opposed to Obama's health care fiasco was forced to stand outside in the rain.
And remember the little girl who stood up and asked a question about the people carrying "mean signs" outside? Well, it turns out she is the daughter of a woman who volunteered to work on the Obama presidential campaign. How is that for transparency and honesty?
Even with all that careful planning, ensuring a zombie-like audience and preparing questions ahead of time, Obama still managed to stick his foot in his mouth by saying the Post Office had more problems than the private enterprises UPS and Fed Ex.
Here's dumbo's exact quote:
"UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It's the Post Office that's always having problems."
A hush went through the crowd as the Kool Aid drinkers realized their Messiah slipped up! Do we really want the same inept government that can't run the post office to take over our health care?
Barack Obama promised transparency in his administration if he was elected. He lied. Obama also promised to give an accounting of every dollar spent out of his $787 billion stimulus bill. He lied about that too. But at least we now know what happened to $140 million of it: Obama's puppeteer, billionaire George Soros, the man who pulls Obama's strings, gave away $35 million of his own money in NY yesterday.
The feds ante'd up an additional $140 million to buy backpacks and school supplies for children on welfare. Naturally, when poor families in NY heard about the free cash, they came running. Thousands lined up at liquor stores and check cashing places to withdraw $200 per child in cash that magically appeared on their electronic benefit cards.
"It's free money!" said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids. Source
While we know abuse will be rampant as welfare mothers spend the loot on liquor, weed and cigarettes, some vowed to spend the cash on their kids:
"Times are really tough right now. The situation is bad with money. So it's easy to want to use the money for other things," said Ana Barcos, 31, of Corona, Queens, where 200 people waited outside a check-cashing business.
"But if the money's supposed to be for my kids, then I will use it for my kids." Source
Another woman who took advantage of the gift to withdraw $800 for her 4 kids was a little more honest:
"I've been eyeing that flatscreen at Best Buy for months, with the $800 I received for my 4 kids now I can get it. Just in time for football season. GO JETS!!!!!!!!!!!!" Source
The other day I posted a link where you could download the full House version of Barack Obama's proposed Universal Health Care Reform bill. After tracking the downloads I noted that only 17 of you downloaded the bill for review. Not 17% -- 17 downloads total!
That's a shame because it provides the bigots with more fuel to call us lazy and ignorant. The joke goes: if you want to hide something from black people, put it in a book.
So for the benefit of those of you who choose to go through life with blinders on, I will shine some light on sections of the bill that I feel will impact our community the most. Please remember that Obama himself has not read the bill, and has never read a bill before he signs it.
Chuck Norris (yes, that Chuck Norris) blogged about a section of the bill (Page 838) that he found particularly disturbing. The provision titled "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children" would send "experts" into your home to "train" and educate you on child behavior and parenting skills.
While Norris has reason to be concerned about strangers evaluating his parenting skills, the program specifically targets the black community. After all, our community has the highest rate of poverty, out-of-wedlock childbirth and black-on-black crime that can be directly traced back to single-parent homes headed by black women.
On Page 840, the bill specifically targets "communities that are in high need of such services, especially communities with a high proportion of low-income families." That doesn't sound like Chuck Norris' neighborhood to me.
On the one hand, Socialized medicine sounds idealistic, but on the other hand, it's shaping up to be an Orwellian nightmare that could lead to population control of the black community.
Norris terms these services "discriminatory and even prejudicial stereotype and generalization that has no place in federal government, law or practice," and he wonders if the "education" will entail religious teachings as well.
Welcome to the New World Order kids! This is the Hope and Change you voted for.
The White House has created an official 'snitch line' and email address for snitches to inform them of critics (such as myself) who oppose the Obama administration's efforts to impose Socialism on America.
They call our freedom to express ourselves "spreading misinformation."
So if this blog is taken offline you'll know why. Is this the Hope and Change you voted for?
The White House strategy of turning supporters into snitches when they see "fishy" information about the health care debate may run afoul of the law, legal experts say.
"The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it," Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.
The White House said it wanted to be made aware of "fishy" comments about its health care plan because it wants to set the record straight. But critics called White House move an Orwellian tactic designed to control the health care debate.
"This is a very troubling attempt to stifle the free speech of Americans who have the constitutional right to express their opinion and concerns about health care," said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice. He called on Obama to repudiate his blog.
"This move is an attempt to intimidate those who have legitimate concerns about the health care plan," Sekulow said. "And, worse, it turns the White House into some sort of self-appointed 'speech police.' This new White House reporting program strikes at the heart of the First Amendment and has no place in this important debate about health care." READ MORE...
