This headline is only half right–“Putin turns up the heat in Ukraine.”  It should read, Obama and Putin turn up the heat.  I think this is the big story, and it is being underreported.  It has both financial and real war implications.

Let’s start with what Russia is doing.  It is now going to issue a new bond based in the yuan.  Are you getting that?  This is yet another move away from using the U.S. dollar to settle international trade.  Russia is also hiking the price of natural gas to Ukraine by at least 50% in May.  The Russians are going to want the cash for natural gas up front.  Russia is warning of the dire debt crisis in Ukraine and how this could threaten Russian natural gas deliveries to the EU.  I said it’s game on for financial war, and this is proof.

Raven Clabough ~ Too Late To Buy Health Insurance In 2014 For Most, Thanks To Obamacare

TheNewAmerican  April 9 2014

obamacareTaxThe implementation of the new healthcare law has brought with it quite a number of unpleasant surprises for those who ignored warnings by ObamaCare critics, including increased costs, less choice, and for many, the loss of their current health plans and physicians. Adding to this list is the latest development: Consumers — including those outside the healthcare exchanges — will be unable to purchase health insurance from now until the next enrollment period, which begins January 1, 2015.

John Divito, president of Flexbenefit, states, “It’s all closed down. You cannot buy a policy that is a qualified policy for the purpose of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) until next year on January 1.”

According to Fox News, this requirement will leave tens of millions of people out of the health insurance market for the rest of the year, with only a few exceptions, such as qualifying events that include marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or loss of employment.

“Only about one in four subsidy-eligible people signed up for health insurance,” reports Robert Laszewski of Health Policy Associates. “That means about 13 million subsidy-eligible people have not yet signed up for health insurance.”

Raven Clabough ~ Gallup Survey Calls Into Question ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers

TheNewAmerican  April 7 2014

obamacareExchangeCartoonAccording to a new Gallup survey released April 7, the number of ObamaCare sign-ups is not as high as the White House has been claiming. The survey shows that the number of uninsured Americans has decreased by less than three million, not the 7.1 million the White House is alleging.

Why the discrepancy? Fox News pointed out: “The administration’s numbers include people who switched their previous coverage, as well as people who have not paid their first month’s premium, and who would therefore still be uninsured.”

Analysts at Goldman Sachs had warned that approximately 20 percent of those who signed up for ObamaCare will not follow through, bringing the number of enrollees closer to five million (based on the assumption that seven million people actually signed up per the White House), about the same number of Americans whose coverage has been cancelled.

Immediately following the deadline to sign up for ObamaCare, critics called into question the final tally touted by the White House and noted that the healthcare law ultimately failed to do what it set out to.

The Boston Globe observed in the days following the close of the March 31 deadline, “The vast majority of those signing up to date were previously covered, a travesty given the bill’s 10-year cost of over $2 trillion.”

The Globe determined that those figures were even less impressive considering the following:

Each year, millions of uninsured Americans find coverage through a new employer, Medicaid, or other means. In fact, the number of uninsured has fallen every year since peaking after the 2008 recession. Many of the 1.2 million newly insured through the exchanges likely would have found coverage regardless.

Kurt Nimmo ~ Mission Accomplished: Millions Of Americans Will Pay Billions To Avoid Obamacare

Infowars.com  April 5 2014

Murray Rothbard: “The state is a gang of thieves writ large.”

Predictably, over at AOL-Huffington Post, they are celebrating the installation of governmentcare at gunpoint.

“The president stood firmly for affordable health care, and the public has responded. Millions who were previously uninsured have reached for the safety net offered by our government. The president and his team deserve great credit,” Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, wrote last week.

Offered? Didn’t she mean coerced, ultimately at gunpoint? If Obama and his team deserve credit, it is for creating the greatest federal bureaucracy since LBJ declared his phony war on poverty.

The racist Johnson later admitted what the overriding agenda of the “Great Society” was – making sure millions of economic victims voted for the Democrat Party.

“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years,” he boasted on Air Force One.

There may not be a shooting war between the U.S. and Russia, but the financial war is game on. Iran and Russia are in the process of sealing a deal where Iranian oil is going to be traded for goods. The deal is worth an estimated $20 billion (500,000 barrels a day is what the Iranians will be producing for this deal), but they are not trading in dollars. Why would Russia, the world leader in oil production, want more oil? Might Russia want to increase the selling of oil in non-dollar currencies?

This is yet another dollar negative bit of news. Now, Russian lawmakers are openly calling for the end of trade for oil and natural gas in dollars. They call the USD “dirty” and “stained with blood.” Add up the recent trade deals with India and China and anyone using the dollar might be getting a little nervous. Last week, President Obama was in Saudi Arabia, and now he is considering arming Syrian rebels with shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles. Of course, as many as half of the rebels are al-Qaeda linked, and the U.S.? Is the U.S. desperate to keep Saudi Arabia selling oil in only U.S. dollars?

Catherine J. Frompovich ~ Had Enough Of Obamacare: You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet!

Activist Post  March 20 2014

cartoon_obamacare-insuranceWith all the spin, fallacies, half-truths, and a few facts thrown in regarding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, readers probably have not heard some of the more egregious stories making the rounds.

Before I’m castigated for not liking ObamaCare, let me say that back in the 1980s and ‘90s I was working for affordable and effective healthcare for everyone in the USA, long before Mr. Obama came on the political scene. Anyone with half a brain understood, even back then, that we needed healthcare reform, but not healthcare destruction!

The number one issue I have with ObamaCare is how it was passed into law. I contend it was passed under duress, i.e., Nancy Pelosi’s “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” That’s downright ILLEGAL! Why did Congress fall for such arm twisting, ploy, and deceit? When parties don’t know the full facts, or information is kept from them during negotiations, according to contract law that contract is not valid and is non-negotiable. On that fact alone, the U.S. Supreme Court should have ‘displayed’ certain parts of the male anatomy to reject ObamaCare when it came up before it, instead of reclassifying it as a “tax.” SCOTUS’s ruling is something that many legal minds question. Congress initiates, passes/enacts, and modifies legislation.

The second issue I have with ObamaCare is how it’s being manipulated by the White House when only Congress should be initiating changes to that unfortunate law. Apparently, there is total disregard for that branch of government by the sitting POTUS. Why is Obama so at odds with Congress? Wasn’t he the one who ran on a platform that his administration would be the most transparent administration, all while having Washington work better?

Vegas Man Stuck With $407,000 Medical Bill After ObamaCare Breakdown

TeaParty  March 19 2014

ObamaCareFormsFox News ~ The busted ObamaCare websites cost a lot of people a lot of time. But for one Nevada man, problems with the state insurance exchange reportedly cost him $407,000.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Larry Basich, a 62-year-old Vegas resident, has been stuck with the massive medical bill despite signing up for an insurance plan via the state exchange last fall.

Basich, according to the article, selected a UnitedHealthcare plan in November, and even paid his first premium. But he never received confirmation that he was enrolled, despite being assured that he was by Nevada Health Link.

Amid the confusion, Basich suffered a heart attack at the end of December, and had to undergo a triple bypass. Now, according to the Review-Journal, no insurer will claim his bills — and he’s caught in a financially frightening battle as he appeals to the exchange and its contractor, Xerox, for help.

“All I wanted to do when I moved here was buy a house, get a dog and go to some spring training games for the Dodgers,” Basich, who moved from Hawaii, told the newspaper.

Xerox reportedly tried to assign Basich’s bills to another insurance plan, but that plan is refusing to accept them. Basich’s insurance broker also complained that Xerox is spending a lot of time lawyering up and documenting all of Basich’s communications. Continue reading

Kurt Nimmo ~ Americans Worried About The Economy, Not Climate Change

Infowars.com March 12, 2014

If you listen to Obama, the Democrats and their propagandists in the corporate media, climate change, immigration, and terrorism are top concerns for Americans.

recent Gallup poll, however, paints a different picture. Climate change comes in second to last as a national problem, according to a survey conducted between March 6-9. Race relations lands at the dead bottom of the list. Immigration is near the bottom, followed by environmental concerns.


Not surprisingly, most Americans are primarily worried about a dismal economy which, according to the establishment media, is on the rebound. Nearly 60 percent of Americans rate the economy as the problem they are most concerned about.
