“My job is now obsolete.” “America’s sovereignty is over.” “The Obama Administration hasn’t told us anything.” “I’m gonna get a raise to continue reading Yahoo News all day long.” “The borders are now open because we can’t arrest most illegal aliens, even if they come into the country today, tomorrow, or next year. They can come here, stay forever, and laugh at us.” – ICE Agent
Those are just some of the reactions I’ve gotten from demoralized Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents who contacted me yesterday and last night regarding Barack Obama’s announcement of mass amnesty for illegal aliens via executive fiat. Some rank-and-file ICE agents told me they were taken into meetings, yesterday afternoon, to be told the bad news about how little work they’d be doing (even less than they’re already doing because they aren’t allowed to do their jobs). Other agents–including some in higher level top official positions in various ICE offices–told me they’ve been told little to nothing and been kept in the dark regarding Obama’s amnesty plan.
But what they’ve told me is disturbing, though not surprising. To wit: Obama is not just instantly legalizing five million illegal aliens. It could be up to 40 million, I’m told. That’s because Obama’s new plan isn’t what he announced last night in a speech to America. In fact, agents tell me that anyone here before January 2014 can stay. And, since there’s no way to verify that, the border will be overrun with illegal aliens who will now say they’ve been here since then. And even they don’t have to lie.
ICE agents have told me that in their meetings yesterday, they will not be allowed to pick up or arrest any illegal aliens here who have fewer than four misdemeanors. Those misdemeanors cannot include traffic offenses to be considered. So if the misdemeanors are drunk driving and they have more than three, they skate anyway. ICE agents also cannot arrest anyone who is basically not a murderer or terrorist or serial serial serial serial child molester (hey, he/she/it can have three misdemeanors pleaded down from sexual conduct felonies, and no big deal, welcome to America; continue to enjoy your stay, habibi). It’s hands off–hands off not just with regard to illegal aliens who claim they’ve been here, but those who came here yesterday, come here today, or will come here tomorrow. They all get to stay and taunt ICE agents who cannot touch them now or at any time in the future. Continue reading →
“. . . as anyone with even a cursory understanding of economics understands, even if a policyholder isn’t directly paying for a subsidy, someone else in the system is. This means that, all subsidies considered, the cost of health insurance under Obamacare is still higher across the board now than it was prior.” – E A Huff
Natural News – The true “affordability” of Obamacare has been called into question by a new study, which found that average premium costs across the board have skyrocketed from what they were before the unconstitutional tax dubbed “healthcare reform” became law in 2010.
The health insurance aggregate site HealthPocket found that, among three different non-smoking age groups, 23, 30 and 63, insurance premiums jumped significantly as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The worst age category was 23-year-old men, who saw their premiums increase by an average of 78 percent.
Similarly, 30-year-old men saw their premiums increase by an astounding 73 percent, while 63-year-old men witnessed a 22.7 percent increase, on average. Women in the younger age groups also saw premium increases, though less severe.
According to the report, 23-year-old women will pay, on average, 45 percent more for health insurance under Obamacare, while 30-year-old women will pay 35 percent more. The only age group where women fared worse than men was the 63-year-olds, which saw a nearly 38 percent premium increase compared to pre-Obamacare days.
“It’s very eye-opening in terms of the transformation occurring within the individual health insurance market,” stated Kev Coleman, head of research and data at HealthPocket, as quoted by The Washington Times.
“If that weren’t enough to cause the purveyors of ObamaCare indigestion, there’s this: the cost of coverage under the Act will substantially increase this year. As Tom Maguire notes of the administration’s suggestion we use the Thanksgiving break to shop around to get the best new deals on health insurance: “If you like your health plan you can reminisce about it.”” – C Feldman
As the story broke bit by bit over the internet — one angry citizen’s (Rich Weinstein) research established that MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, a major architect and salesman for ObamaCare, boasted in 6 separate videos that he lied and that voters were “too stupid” to catch on — we got to see inside what Professor Charles Lipson smartly coined “the smug filled rooms” of the Capitol.
Many observed the only “stupid” people were the Democrats who — without a single Republican vote — twisted parliamentary procedure to pass this into law, accepting California’s constitutional genius Nancy Pelosi’s admonition, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.”
The revelations could not have come at a worse time for the administration.
For one thing, the Supreme Court just granted certiorari in the King case. That case tests whether the clear language of the ObamaCare subsidies for those who sign up under state-run plans was improperly extended by IRS to signers on the federal website, a bit of administration legerdemain to keep ObamaCare viable after 37 states refused to set up state insurance exchanges.
You see, Gruber’s arrogance revealed that the scheme was not only contrary to the clear language of the statute, but as well to the intent of its authors. He has gravely undercut the administration’s argument to look beyond the language to sustain their expansion of it. While countless Democrats — including especially Nancy Pelosi — who credited and relied on Gruber’s work now act as if they never heard of him, they can’t so easily dispose of him and his role in the creation of Obamacare .
Harley Schlanger, historian and national spokesperson for LaRouchePAC joins us to discuss the total rejection of Barack Obama, his globalist policies and his Bankster inspired agenda.
“He has given us so many reasons for impeachment, but you have to pick at the most important ones.” says Schlanger, “Under the war powers act Obama should have gone to the Congress about three weeks ago on the question of the troops we sent into Iraq. He not only didn’t do it, bur he says he doesn’t have to… He says he doesn’t need the Congressional approval, which is a direct assault on the Constitution.”
“Well, here is the reality. By the most conservative estimate, the US medical system kills 2,250,000 people per decade. That’s the system that’s heading for massive expansion under Obamacare.” – J Rappoport
Everybody knows Jonathan Gruber now. He was a consultant who helped frame the Obamacare law.
He’s stated that that, yes, Obamacare has a tax in its provisions, and yes the public was deceived.
Gruber: “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies…[I]f you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
Tax? Penalty? Tax? Penalty?
Either way, Obamacare is an order, a command, from on high.
The whole debate hides the real fact: people are being coerced into a system that kill and maims at a staggeringly high level.
No one in Congress or the White House brought that up during the process of promoting and passing the bill. Too hot to handle. Much too hot. Continue reading →
“Obama and his team are not chastened, much less repentant, over the recent election results. They remain undeterred, and they intend to continue using whatever means they deem necessary, in their self-assessed superior wisdom, to accomplish their political ends, beginning with immigration.” – D Limbaugh
Recently, a very disturbing video emerged that contains the metaphorical smoking gun concerning President Obama’s many lies about Obamacare. This should remove any lingering doubt that we’re dealing with a fascist-type administration.
Of course, there should be no need for a smoking gun, because it is now undeniable that Obama lied on his major selling points about the Affordable Care Act. Unlike many Democrats in falsely accusing President George W. Bush of lying about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, I don’t use the term “lie” lightly.
I don’t mean that Obama made good-faith statements about his bill that he honestly believed at the time but would later turn out to be erroneous. I am not even suggesting that he made promises he knew would be difficult to fulfill that he ultimately could not. I am saying that he made statements that he knew to be false when he made them.

“We get analysis from Lori Wallach of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, who notes that while some analysts say GOP gains will accelerate the passage of fast-track legislation in Congress to enable an agreement on the TPP, “it is kind of hard for the Republicans to voluntarily delegate more authority to the guy they’ve been attacking as the imperial president who grabs power that’s not his.”” – Sartre
You just have to love the wit and precision of a political image. Pat Dollard’s title NY Post Destroys Obama With Brutal Cover, says it all. The arrogant despot was indeed STRIPPED! The belated question is why did it take so long? In order to answer the obvious, most political analysts’ will fall into the partisan trap of party politics. Hope and change finally was seen as dictatorial haughtiness. Most voters do not believe that they are deceived by skilled liars when they cast their ballot. Yet, that is a pattern that is uninterrupted in most elections. Only the style of administrations differs, while the establishment continues to pull the strings and policies to move the consolidation of the New World Order forward.
That Nefarious Warrior Organism is eager to accelerate the next stage of the master plan. Under an openly NeoCon front, John McCain’s chairmanship of a Senate Armed Services Committee will get to pressure the public into believing that their national security requires vigorous interventionism. Before you think that the Democrats differ from this same post WWII strategy, it would be best to brush up on a necessary history lesson.
Obama never attempted to confront, much less reverse the foreign policy of defending an empire. At the core of American power is the use of force that threatens any regime, which will not capitulate to the dictates of the financial elites that put Obama in office. The same can be said for most of the presidencies from FDR onward. The mere attempt to buck this system got JFK killed and Reagan shot. Yet to even mention such vial thoughts earns the historiographer a place in the conspiracy hall of infamy. Continue reading →
