While President Obama ran on a pledge to be the most transparent presidency in history, critics have charged that — as with promises to protect civil liberties and international law — Obama has done precisely the opposite of what he promised. His Administration has radically expanded the national security state while fighting every effort in court to challenge unchecked executive powers, including his successful effort to get Congress to dismiss dozens of public interest lawsuits over surveillance, torture, etc.
The latest effort of the Obama Administration was to refuse to release even redacted version of legal memoranda on Obama’s use of drones to kill U.S. citizens. I have previously written about Obama Kill list policy in columns and blog posts. What is interesting is that the Obama Administration shows utter contempt for the federal courts in first claiming that any release of redacted classified legal arguments would endanger national security and then, after the district court yielded to the government, proceeding to discuss the very same information in public when it suited the Administration.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit finally said enough. The problem is that the district court did not exercise its authority to reject the clearly excessive claims of the government. It is only because the government contradicted itself — not the facially overboard claims made before the district court. The case is New York Times v. United States Department of Justice, 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 7387. The case highlights the extreme hostility shown by the Obama Administration to both transparency and the media. Continue reading

One of the categories in ICD-9 is this one: “Legal execution: All executions performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority (whether permanent or temporary) as: asphyxiation by gas, beheading, decapitation (by guillotine), capital punishment, electrocution, hanging, poisoning, shooting, other specified means.”
These codes were not created by Obamacare, however Obamacare is trying to implement every American citizen under international codes to link us to the “international” system. These codes were actually created by the WHO (World Health Organization) . The WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.
All executions performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority [whether permanent or temporary] as:
- asphyxiation by gas
- beheading, decapitation (by guillotine)
- capital punishment
- other specified means
- Injury undetermined whether accidentally or purposely inflicted
According to reports, more than 68,105 new medical codes are being added due to the Obamacare monstrosity. Doctors all across the nation have been complaining due to the overwhelming burden it places upon them.
Just the time consumption alone, making sure these codes are accurate, will inevitably take time away from the doctor/patient relationship creating a barrier of paperwork while destroying the personal experience with your doctor.
A previous article said welcome to Cold War 2.0. The first one never ended. Since Soviet Russia’s 1991 dissolution, Western policy remained hard-wired in place.
Putin and Obama are geopolitical opposites. They’re world’s apart. Their ideologies clash. They represent conflicting values.
Putin defends Russian sovereignty. He opposes US imperial lawlessness. He affirms UN Charter and other rule of law principles.
Obama claims a divine right to pursue unchallenged global hegemony. Washington considers Putin public enemy number one. At risk is potential East/West confrontation.
Russia bashing persists. It’s intense. It rages daily. It exceeds the worst of Soviet era levels.
Daily vilifying reinvents the Evil Empire. It’s back to the future. It doesn’t surprise. Neocons infest Washington. Business as usual continues.
Recklessness defines US policy. At stake is world peace. On April 19, Putin said there’s “nothing to prevent us from normalizing (US/Russian) relations and (reestablishing) normal cooperation.”
At the same time, he knows how Washington operates. He knows its dark side. He knows what hasn’t existed in a century or more.
He knows it takes a giant leap of faith to expect America to act responsibly. It hasn’t throughout its sordid history. Why expect change now.
It is now clear that the cabal that has ruled the West is in disarray and is unable to act despite a very real surrender deadline given to them. The European power brokers like the Pope and the Queen support world peace and a campaign to end poverty and stop environmental destruction. However, Rockefeller, Bush and the other American oligarchs are acting like deer frozen in the headlights, unable or unwilling to take action. The same can be said of the heads of the Pentagon and the agencies.
Let there be no doubt about it, the United States of America has degenerated into a rogue nation ruled by Satan worshipping gangsters and is the black hole from which most of the world’s misery emerges.
Removing the public face of the US oligarchy, Barack Hussein Obama, raises the question of “what do you replace him with?” If the heads of the military industrial complex do not act with a unified plan, the answer is likely to be chaos, turmoil and possibly even civil war in the US.
The best hope now lies with the State governments who now have the required two-thirds support to demand a conference to rewrite the constitution of the United States of America. Continue reading
Harley Schlanger, the National Spokesman for LaRouchePAC joins me to discuss the latest — as the United States creeps toward another Bankster designed world war led by Obama, the Neocons and the CIA.
We document the crimes of CIA head John Brennan who had boots on the ground IN the Ukraine just days ago, the same man responsible for covering up 28 pages of “redacted” and “classified” 9/11 information implicating the Saudis in the crime of the century. We also discuss the BLM-Bundy Ranch crimes, the Traitor Harry Reid, drought and much more.
One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory.
Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American people were afraid of having an honest discussion about race.The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed.
Truth is Holder’s definition of an “honest discussion” consists of lecturing white Americans about their inherent racism and selectively prosecuting crimes according to the race of the accused. When Black Panther thugs intimidated voters outside a polling station in 2008 in Philadelphia and were caught doing so on camera, Holder refused to prosecute BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACK! Had the incident been the other way around, how long do you think it would have taken for a swat team to arrest, prosecute and/or terminate the perpetrators?
The criminal cabal that hijacked the Republic of the United States of America and turned it into a global pariah have been cornered to a point where they must either surrender or die. This is becoming obvious on many levels. For example, last week even the member nations of the globalist International Monetary Fund lined up 187 to 1 against the United States in an effort to get them to relinquish their veto control of that institution.
Even more troubling for the families that control the Federal Reserve Board has been the massive ongoing attack on their petrodollar. In particular, the situation in the Ukraine is turning into a historical cabal defeat.
President Vladimir Putin of Russia has begun insisting that Europe and the Ukraine pay for their supplies of Russian gas with something other than US dollars. The Europeans have little choice but to agree to this, thus sealing the fate of the petrodollar.
US Corporate Government President Barack Obama, working under orders from puppet masters like George Soros, tried convincing the Middle Eastern oil producing countries to drive down the price of oil and bankrupt Russia but was rebuffed.
Obama then turned around and went to the Chinese where, according to Chinese government sources, he offered to hand over to China control over all of South East Asia and Japan if China agreed to use the People’s Liberation Army to put pressure on Russia. The Chinese, however, are fully aware that Obama represents the same regime that tried to kill most of China’s population with ethnically targeted bio-weapons a few years ago and thus will not make a deal with them against Russia.
The Chinese however, are insisting that the United Nations move its headquarters to Asia and reform its security council so that it more accurately represents the population of the planet earth. They are also coming to the conclusion that the cabal has no intention of handing over control of the World Bank or the IMF so they are preparing to set up a new institution that will have far more funds available to it than both the World Bank and the IMF combined.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
She’s like the old Health and Human Services chief. She’s Sylvia Mathews Burwell. More on her below.
Kathleen Sebelius is out. She said she resigned. Maybe she was pushed. Obamacare claimed its latest victim. She served as chief architect. She presided over its disastrous rollout.
Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a giant scam. It rations care. It’s a ripoff. It’s a monstrosity.
It’s rife with unacceptable inequities. It does nothing to control costs. They’re spiraling out-of-control. They’re increasingly unaffordable for growing millions.
ACA makes a dysfunctional system worse. It’s double the cost of other developed nations.
It’s woefully inadequate. It leaves millions uninsured. It leaves millions more way underinsured. It makes US healthcare more than ever unaffordable.
If employers don’t provide it, consumers are out of luck. They’re forced to choose from among unacceptable options.
They require buying insurance or be penalized. In 2014, it’s $95 per person up to 1% of family income, whichever is greater.
Fines increase sevenfold over the next two years. In 2016, it’s $695 per person up to 2.5% of income. It’s whichever is greater.
It’s a boon to predatory providers. It should be. They wrote legislation mandating it. It assures they benefit at our expense.
