Paid Obamascare trolls swarm web

Obamascare: 60% of online Obamacare defenders ‘paid to post’ hits on critics

By Paul Bedard • 2/25/17

A majority of online and social media defenders of Obamacare are professionals who are “paid to post,” according to a digital expert.

“Sixty percent of all the posts were made from 100 profiles, posting between the hours of 9 and 5 Pacific Time,” said Michael Brown. “They were paid to post.”

His shocking analysis was revealed on this weekend’s Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, broadcast on Sinclair stations and streamed live Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Her upcoming show focuses on information wars and Brown was describing what happened when he had a problem with Obamacare and complained online.

Funny how media all care about Russia trying to influence the elections and politics but don’t pay any attention to dopey Obama trolls trying to manipulate public opinion. They do care about what conservatives do though. A real grass movement… of green.

The Swamp, Hillary, Creatures, Corruption, Oh My

Obama hits the trail for Hillary. A lot has happened in 8 years and a lot hasn’t happened. The campaign difference between then and now is stark and Obama is caught in his hypocrisy. “Come on, man!”… as Obama repeats in his mocking way.

How can Hillary have been so wrong in 08 be so right for president today? Come on, man. So after setting up a server to avoid the public, those pesky citizens, and exploiting the office in a pay to play scheme never before seen, Hillary is suddenly ready for the White House. In fact, Obama says she is the most qualified person ever. So he was wrong then, and that was before her most recent scandals: servergate, pay to play and Benghazi.

Draining the Swamp is a great metaphor for Washington. Hillary is its ultimate poster child. Her sole identity is the Queen of the Swamp and the greatest single creature in it. Hillary is the metaphor for the Swamp metaphor. According to their rules for radicals, the Aliskyites’ goal is to personalize the issue. And Hillary Clinton personalizes the Swamp perfectly. She is the Swamp creature. Hillary is the bin Laden of the Swamp.

Obama said premiums are only going up for a handful of people who are not subsidized by government, so apparently it is a non-problem. Right, who cares about people that are not subsidized? I guess that was never a concern for Obamacare. Gruber admitted that they lied to get it passed. What happened was a lot of people wrongly believed that Obamacare would not affect them or their own plans. So all Obama had to do was fool deceive enough people that it would not affect them. Who cared about the truth volcano to follow?

Forget about all the real national security threats, the greatest national threat besides Obama is now Hillary Clinton. We cannot Drain the Swamp if we don’t keep Hillary out of the White House.

Yet Obama says Hillary Clinton is just picture perfect for the job, and she’ll focus on protecting kids and families. That is really not just a little green algae in the water.

Come on, man.

Crazy system, Obamacare

“They are getting whacked.” Hoodwinked, bamboozled, whatever. Crazy Bill opines.

More a case that the Crazy Clintons are running for denial.

Of course people have been whacked by Obamacare since the beginning, as Jonathan Gruber admitted. It’s built on lies.

They’d rather have Obamacare than the truth. New Econ 101: Lie and keep on lying.

“Give me a break, this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

ObamaCare enrollment pitch

Here’s a stunning revelation from the Obama administration. Attention G-Mart shoppers!

In a country with 325 million people, the word most is a big number.
I guess you get those subsidies while paying your subsidues.
I’ll try hashtag get smothered by big-gov now.

Obama Kidnapped America

The US and American people are being held hostage to Obama’s personal political agenda. You can stop reading there because that’s the whole point in a nutshell.

As a matter of his personal political ideology we see country collapsing around it. The Left can’t compare it to Bush and say it is the same thing. The only suitable comparison is to Putin. But even that does not work because Vlad is acting in Russia’s interest, whether you agree with what he is doing or not. Putin does believe in his country at least.

With Obama the only thing that matters is Obama’s ideology, corrupt as it is. Any means to the end. So now we see Obamacare collapsing. Not a problem to Obama. 12 out of 23 states had their co-ops crash. The initial seed money is lost. Silence from Obama. The agency said enough people were not forced into the ObamaCare by loosing their employee insurance. Jonathan Gruber admitted the plot was to lie to the people just to ram it through. Obama basically said what’s it matter, so what? He sends earthquakes again into medical coverage. Did he say anything?

His comrades have declared a war on cops. Again, not a problem for Obama. Even when the FBI director tells us that police are backing off due to all the social chaos and cop-killing, so crime is up. Obama says you cannot cherry pick data or use anecdote to make public policy. But Obama is doing exactly that: cherry picking and using anecdote to make policy.The FBI is not making policy but stating the trend, facts.

Obama declares the Keystone Pipeline dead. The Climate Caliphate is gearing up for a year-end push of their agenda. All he cares about is his environmental agenda. Meanwhile, months back his own administration contaminated a pristine river and region in Colorado.(an interstate disaster)  Obama said nothing. He was not up in arms firing people. No, it was business as usual: lie and make excuses. First they denied the amount and damage.

He told the EPA to go ahead and roll out his anti-business agenda and war on coal regulations, despite whether it is Constitutional. Who cares about the effects, or their impact on people? He weaponized the IRS and used it against his political opponents. He said there is not a smidgen of corruption. then his DOJ declared there was nothing to prosecute Lerner for.

This all and government is just an extension of Obama’s personal ideology. And he’ll go to any end to force it on the people.

Invasion of illegal immigrants, Obama’s executive orders, his forced amnesty, gun control, racism, riots, and even his scandals are all a product of his personal political agenda.

Whatever you think about all that, one thing is clear: Obama is holding America hostage to his own, personal political agenda.

How the truth became politically incorrect to Obama

The story here is not only that truth became politically incorrect to Obama but also, more importantly, that anyone endorsing or trafficking in truth became the opposition to Obama. Imagine that, just by aligning oneself with the truth turns one into an enemy of Obama. And by extension, considering his position, it thereby turns one into an enemy of the state. We see how all this works. In effect, truth has become Obama’s chief enemy, and thereby an enemy of the state.

Of course it would be a difficult thing for media to accept. Fortunately, they don’t have to worry about such a thing. That would admit being played or hoodwinked by Obama.

The Iran deal reveals a chunk of this truism about Bary Soetoro. Go back to his campaign days where, asked about Iran, he always favored talking to Iran. His supporters loved it. Conservatives took issue with that for exactly the reasons we witnessed, of “negotiation” with the talks. Of course we were told we were wrong that talks do not equal negotiating. But they do and did. Now we also see how that negotiation turned out .

So they made it so complex, attaching side deals, which no one will see between Iran and IAEA, that it would be purposefully hard to understand. Trust us, they said, it is a good deal. (a good deal of BS) See it would require trust. However, trust does not make it a good deal. But “trust” is the fallacy that Obama has peddled all along, since his early days as Senator, to his first campaign to today. We are always to just trust him, with little or no basis for it, and then we get screwed in the end. Trust though is a central ingredient in his modus operandi and agenda. It’s the top necessary ingredient with Obama. Which is why I called his a faith-based campaign: “Hope and change” and “change you can believe in.”

The side deals, as they are referred to, are unknown to Kerry and even Obama. By law, all materials of the deal must be given to Congress. So how can they sign off on something they don’t know the details of, and cannot see? But that is what Obama is asking of Congress. It’s a good deal, trust us, “peace in our time.” Trust is the operative word.

Remember Reagan’s maxim of trust and verify?

We always verify after the fact that he lied to us. But it always shows in the end our trust was without merit. We always get a raw deal or royally screwed. He is not happy enough to screw us in the present, he wants to stick to future generations too. There are normally multiple layers of screwage. He also sets it up where future negotiations with Iran will be necessary. Then the future administration(s) will have to deal with Tehran. We really made Iran some kind of a partner.

Every step along the way on issues Obama abused our trust and destroyed the grounds for it. I can’t say he actually destroyed our trust because people cannot accept that their trust was shot through, because that would be admitting they were taken, lied to, or hoodwinked. Who wants to admit being a mark? But they continue to trust him.

It is a serial abuse relationship Obama has with even many of his voters and base. (they aren’t all communists though they endorse Marxist people, which is another subject) To admit it is more than they can take. Each step Obama requires people to just trust him.

Seeing is believing, or not.

We know it is not the transparency he promised, another lie. So behind their backs he is abusing their trust in him. A few, and I don’t know how many, are probably privy to this whole charade Obama plays but who also believe in the destination anyway, so it is acceptable. Remember the professor of Obamcare, Jonathan Gruber, and his repeated statements that they had to lie to us. Which is more profound, that they believed they had to lie to us or that lying is such a necessary tactic in their agenda?

Well, it was the same premise in the Iran deal, they had to lie to the American people. From the beginning they said we would have anytime anywhere access and that would be in any agreement. Now we see we don’t have anywhere anytime access. Then Kerry said that anywhere anytime was not promised, or part of the plan. He denied that there were any side deals and, low and behold, there are side deals. They denied that sanctions were working though they claim that sanctions, in fact — ones congress not Obama imposed — were the pressure that brought them to the negotiation table. Then they condemned any talk of new sanctions or reinstatement of the previous ones, which Obama lifted. They claimed eliminating the prospect of a nuclear Iran was the objective, while they in effect enshrined their nuclear ability. They also denied that containment was their strategy, but voila theirs is a strategy of containment.

Furthermore, let’s back up again to the campaign trail. Obama claimed his mission was to stop proliferation. In fact he wants to eliminate all nuclear weapons. We now see he has proliferated them starting a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. He said he would do these things with, he assured us, the purest of motives. Now we look at what really motivated him.

The political strategy, lie a lot — early and often.

Probably the biggest parallel theme to things though is the lies. Its a tactic and an overall strategy of his. Tell us anything in order to get his way, pass legislation, accomplish his mission or goal — preferably the opposite of what he is doing. Obamacare was built on lies and illusion. He sold the initial idea that it would only affect those who didn’t have insurance or medical coverage. Hello, it affected everyone. He said if you liked your plan you could keep your plan. Wrong, you couldn’t. He said if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. Wrong. He said it would lower the cost of your insurance, saving average family 2500 per/yr. In fact, it increased the cost and for some families by 2500 a year. He said it would lower our debt while it added to it.

But probably the central, critical lie he used from the onset was that, since there was a majority of people already covered, it would not affect them. That made it very palatable. It basically was only going to help those who had no coverage. So people went along because they believed it would not affect them personally, least not negatively. And many of those are the very ones it affects the most, and in the worst way. Now they have soaring premiums and deductibles. It was a pack of lies, actually built on a foundation of lies. Sound familiar? Then came Professor Gruber who said just that. Well, then it was the lie that he was nothing and not connected with drafting the law. Actually he was an architect of the law. See?

So now we have an Iran deal following the same formula. Tell the people anything at the beginning, lie and promise them anything. Whatever means to the ends. Then deny what you said and did. But then Gruber’s admission was even worse than admitting they lied. It was, yes we lied to the stupid American people. But it even went a step deeper than that.

Daily Caller

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said that lack of transparency was a major part of getting Obamacare passed because “the stupidity of the American voter” would have killed the law if more people knew what was in it.

Catch that? First he told us they had to lie to the stupid people. Then he suggested they had to lie to us because we are stupid. In effect, we are the cause for their lying. It’s our fault they lied.(that’s something like the ultimate lie) Like: I’ll admit I lied but the reason was because you made it so necessary. It’s all our fault and we’re stupid, so we probably can’t even understand that. Geesh. Maybe one day we’ll come up to their level and be able to understand — surely it won’t be soon. By then they will be even smarter. It’s not even that government knows best, it is that the progressives know better than all.

Then there was Senator Hillary CLinton’s statement to General Petraeus that his report “requires the willing suspension of disbelief.” Take that from the Liars Club. Ironically, that is exactly what Obama and his administration, including Hillary, requires from us — “suspension of disbelief.” We know he’s lying to us, but let’s not pay much attention to that detail. Instead, let’s accept what he says as the truth. Most places would call deceit on that level fraud. Just like the kind that ushered Obama into office. But in his campaign, at the time, he was busy pointing out Hillary’s lies. Round and round it goes, where it stops only Obama knows. But it never will stop because he cannot allow the lies to end.

Liberal Privilege

The evolving dictionary has found another term that needs defined. All the talk is about white privilege. But there is an obvious term that has not been used called liberal privilege.

We know it’s there, it doesn’t require proof. Obama has played that card often. He doesn’t want to follow or enforce certain laws? No problem, just whip out the old “liberal privilege card” and he doesn’t have to. Whether it was DOMA or writing/rewriting legislation from the Oval Office, no problem. Liberal privilege covers it all. It’s the card with no limits and works anywhere. If they don’t accept the card, force them to, it’s the liberal way.

If you don’t believe in following a particular law, don’t and call it civil disobedience — works great for rioting and looting. If you are an official or politician and do not want to enforce a law, pull your liberal privilege card. Voila you no longer have to. Look how well it worked for Lois Lerner. Does the damage matter? Apparently not. In fact, no one usually pays the penalty, that’s where the card really comes in handy. Hillary Clinton uses hers regularly.

So here’s a slogan candidates could use:
Got Liberal Privilege? Check it!

SCOTUS, Obamacare and quicksand

In honor of today’s Supreme Court decision (bowel movement) on Obamacare,
I’d like to dedicate this song especially to Roberts.

    Swimming in Quicksand by Black Oak Arkansas

It seems Bill Clinton might have been right years ago, it depends on the meaning of is.

I must have missed the announcement where Chief Justice Roberts went into politics.

Hit and run politics

Obama is the Master of Disaster

Hillary is the Mistress of Mischief

Both peddle hit and run politics:
They’ll run you over on the way to their next crime scene.

Obama also does drive-by Executive Orders.

And the Show must go on

Hillary is cranking up the campaign presses but this is her theme in announcing her run.

Hillary campaign

Oh yes, she has decided we need a champion, and she has decided she will be that champion. Oh that smell, I can never get used to it — and hope I don’t.

Americans needed a champion in 2012, to get to the bottom of Benghazi which still hasn’t happened. “Everyday Americans” needed an investigation and explanation of what happened. They got lies about a video and protest in return. Hillary said “what difference at this point does it make anyway?” Champion?

They needed a champion to take on the IRS and the scandal it has become, to stop it from targeting private citizens out of political motives. They needed a champion to stop the usurpation and executive abuse of Obama’s assault on America with his pen and phone. They needed a real Dep of Justice — not a Just-Us department.

They needed a champion to stop the unconstitutional amnesty programs, to force government to enforce the law. They needed a champion to enforce our borders. Anyone? But government told them their perception was the problem.

“We the people” needed a champion to protect us from Obamacare: the creation, the law, the roll out, continued executive fiat, and the damage it is causing. We needed a champion to prevent government abuse of our tax dollars on boondoggles that lost our money.

In short, they need a champion and advocate to protect them from the Federal Leviathan, not someone promising more of the same.

They needed a champion on their side standing up to the tyrant in the White House, and out of control administration with a justice department corrupted from within. They were treated to one scandal after another but told there were no scandals, and that there was not a smidgeon of corruption in the IRS.

What Americans needed and wanted they never got. Americans wanted the ear of their government and got lectures instead. We were told “you didn’t build that”. Obama said we were angry and cling to guns and religion, holding antipathy toward others. We got lectured and called racists. We were told we just didn’t understand Obamacare etc. Middle class Americans and everyone else were lied to, repeatedly. Then they were mocked.

Finally, we got lectured about the Crusades when our national security was threatened, as Americans and Christians were slaughtered in the name of Islamic terrorism. We got an administration refusing to state the objective of Islamic terrorism.

What Americans needed was economic stability but what they got was an assault on the economy and a war on energy, sponsored by their own government.

She tells us what “everyday Americans” really need is a champion. Thanks. Government taking its boot off the throat of the economy and ending its assault on us would help.

So Hillary will stand up for middle-class Americans … from the back of her limousine.

PS: Americans don’t need a champion, they need government to stop its abuse.

Obamacare enrollment appears to have hit the wall

By Thomas Lifson — April 7, 2015 | American Thinker

John Merline of Investor’s Business Daily has been examining the numbers on Obamacare enrollment and discovers that, contrary to predictions of millions more signing up, new enrollments are dying up.

Earlier this year, the Obama administration hoped to boost ObamaCare sign-ups by offering a special enrollment period for millions who didn’t know about the individual mandate penalty until they filed their taxes.

Evidently the same geniuses designed Obamacare as the global warming agenda. Obama sycophants say “you just want to see it fail.” Well, the problem is what failure means: the more it fails, the more expensive it will get. No one is hoping for that.

But it was entirely predictable when Dems did a bill called the affordable care act. I guess this explains Obama shifting his emphasis to his unconstitutional executive amnesty. One scandal or diversion after another.

The Ed Schultz redefinition camp

Here’s Ed Schultz doing his level best trying to describe Obamacare as the bomb wonderful.

“You aren’t denied, you just have to pay a little bit more.”

“The fact is we have federal standards just like we have federal standards on many things in the country.” That’s Ed’s answer to all the problems. Lies…who cares?

Elections have consequences

Cornell students erupt over healthcare fee; ‘elections have consequences’ messages pour in

February 14, 2015 by Carmine Sabia | BizPac Review

Sometimes, the best education is the one life gives you.

Students at the prestigious but liberal-leaning Cornell University found that out the hard way last week, when they stormed the office of school President David Skorton to protest a modern-day example of socialism at work.

On Feb. 5, Skorton posted a memo on the school’s website notifying students that all who opt out of Cornell’s health care program next year will be charged a $350 fee, Fox News reported.

Obamacare requires all students to have health insurance, but those already covered are also forced to pay the opt-out fee. And they’re none too pleased.

“Effective next academic year, 2015-16, we will be introducing a student health fee for those not enrolled in the Cornell Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP),” Skorton’s memo said. “As a physician, parent and president, I am proud of our university’s long history of providing quality medical, mental health, education and prevention services on campus. These essential services play a critical role in student well-being and, therefore, success. Yet funding these services — and creating access to them for all students — has been a growing fiscal challenge, and a personal concern of mine.”

About 150 students protested the move by staging an old-fashioned sit-in at Skorton’s office and a main administrative building on Monday, while others turned to 21st century hashtag activism on Twitter with the #fightthefee rallying cry, according to The College Fix student newspaper.

It didn’t take long, though, for some who found irony in the situation to hijack the hashtag, including these tweeters: see

ObamaCare Takes Full Force in Next 18 Months, Americans Scrambling to Prepare

Tuesday, 16 Dec 2014 | Newsmax
By Newsmax Wires

Barring any new amendments, the massive new healthcare law dubbed “ObamaCare” is set to take full force in the next 12 to 18 months.

Most Americans don’t understand the new law and aren’t ready for its sweeping changes. These changes will impact everyone, seniors, small business, the employed, the unemployed, doctors, and medical professionals.

As a matter of fact, ObamaCare’s numerous provisions will soon alter:

  • The cost of health insurance, medical treatment, and prescription drugs . . .
  • The type and quality of healthcare available in the near future . . .
  • Even the ability to get in to see a doctor (any healthcare provider, for that matter) . . .

In fact, ObamaCare adds more than 30 million Americans to the healthcare rolls.

The program will be a massive tidal wave and experts say it may even cause doctor and nurse shortages.

And one study found that up to 40% of doctors are leaving practices due to the punitive regulations under ObamaCare.

This could result in health-threatening delays just to visit a doctor, as well as potentially substandard treatment. Plus, seniors in particular can expect alarming cuts to their Medicare benefits.

That’s because ObamaCare literally robs Peter to pay Paul by cutting $716 billion from Medicare over the next decade to fund other services under Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Worse, the law puts Medicaid on parity with Medicare, a fact that will likely weaken Medicare!

Given the election results, Americans are now seeking to prepare for these changes. Those who don’t could be hit very hard.

Right now, millions of Americans are desperately scrambling for answers as the new rules and regulations of ObamaCare begin to take hold.

ObamaCare could degrade the quality of your healthcare if you are not prepared.

H/T to Pepp for the article.

These effects are coming just as predicted, and seemingly right on schedule from the master planners. I do get a little weary of the Left acting as if these are just little hiccups and accidents that can be straightened out… like how they ironed it out originally.

There are those net affects of stealing from Medicare to fund it coming to full bloom. Oh remember how they denied that one? That was at the very same time they blamed the GOP for trying to cut Medicare. All the ObamaCare sound bites — lies as we call them.

Getting and being prepared? Well, that is a little hard for most people given the scope of this. In any other reality this might give birth to the largest class-action lawsuit in history. Barring that, what change will we see brought about?

It’s doubtful they will want to fix anything until we feel the full affects from it. The Obama minions would cry ‘that is hypothetical like the death panels’. So when the naysayers of ObamaCare end up being right, who cares to point it out and correct the record? Think of all the people who were demonized for opposing ObamaCare.

PPACA: built on a mountain of lies that keeps on growing. Politicos always say “next election.” We’ve had 4 elections about this monstrosity but it’s gotten worse, not better.

Christmas CRomnibus

Christmas came early this year for Obama. While he attended a Christmas party, the House elves passed the aka CRamnibus bill, which contained funding for Obamacare to next September and the stocking-stuffer funding for his illegal amnesty.christmas bells photo: Christmas bells 3DChristmasbells-1.gif

CROmnibus: The $1 Trillion Betrayal

By James Simpson | December 11, 2014 | American Thinker

Flush from an unprecedented nationwide GOP victory in this November’s elections, House and Senate GOP leadership determined that their essential first course of action should be to snatch defeat from its jaws. They have brought forth a spending bill for 2015 that gives President Obama almost everything he wants, while disenfranchising the very voters who delivered the GOP victory.

The $1.014 trillion Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, (HR 83), has been dubbed “CROmnibus” as it is a combined continuing resolution (CR) and Omnibus spending bill. It will provide full funding for 11 of the 12 annual appropriations bills to the end of FY 2015 (September 30th), and a short term continuing resolution to February 27 for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The 1,603 Page Cromnibus

Speaker Boehner has said he would ensure members a minimum of 72 hours to read legislation. Instead, following former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s innovative “pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it” policy, there will only be a tiny window of no more than 52 hours to read, analyze and vote on a trillion dollar spending bill that is 1,603 pages long. For reference, the Bible (NKJV) is only 1,200 pages. In 2010, incoming Speaker Boehner sang a different tune, “I do not believe that having 2,000-page bills on the House floor serves anyone’s best interests, not the House, not for the members and certainly not for the American people,” he said. But he also said he was going to cut spending…

They start by writing in the extraordinary ability for appropriations to make changes after its passage.

In what seemed like a game of role reversal, Dems objected to the bill and Queen Elizabeth Warren was leading opposition which would shut down Government — and subsequently time as we know it.

For his part, Boehner was shoveling out a 1600-page bill without allowing time  to actually read it. Boehner was also allying with Obama to push it through, in much the way Obamacare was rammed through.  Maybe it was theater night at the Capitol?

The analysis of this Christmas CRamnibus is going to take some time to decipher, especially regarding their rule.  With these Christmas festivities, one wonders what is in store for New Years? With Dems offering their best Scrooge impression, these theatrics won’t be over soon.   This spectator says “bah-humbug” to all their chicanery.

Wait, I think that’s the White House blasting critics: “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch!

Access denied: cancer care on chopping block

Nation’s elite cancer hospitals off-limits under Obamacare

By Associated Press – March 19, 2014 | NY Post

WASHINGTON — Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn that some of the nation’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits.

An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is excluded by five out of eight insurers in Washington state’s insurance exchange. MD Anderson Cancer Center says it’s in less than half of the plans in the Houston area. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is included by two of nine insurers in New York City and has out-of-network agreements with two more.

Doctors and administrators say they’re concerned. So are some state insurance regulators.

“This is a marked deterioration of access to the premier cancer centers for people who are signing up for these plans,”  said Dan Mendelson, CEO market research firm Avalere Health.

It is getting very interesting, as those three thousand pages start to speak.

The steady drip, drip, drip

It’s Ferguson, it’s NYC, no it’s everywhere. In fact, it isn’t black, native American, or other, it’s everyone. And it’s law enforcement across the board.

So that is Obama’s latest on the police acting stupidly, in Obama’s narrative. Only there is no summit in sight on the problem.

Remember last year under the sequester when Obama wanted America to feel the pain of budget restrictions? He threatened us with cuts to fire and police departments. He used those threats as fodder against any opposition to his unilateral agenda.

Now he critiques the cops for their treatment of people. And he broadens it to their treatment of, well, everyone.

His latest statements come on the heels of the NYC grand jury decision not to prosecute police for “murder” or death of Garner, in their arrest of him for selling cigarettes. A case where, once again, Al Sharpton is front and center in the case and reaction to the decision. It’s amazing he can still have time to have a show on MSNBC. But this is probably considered being “on assignment.”

Obama on NY grand jury decision: ‘This is an American problem’

December 03, 2014 | The Hill

President Obama vowed Wednesday that he would not “let up” in his push to address law enforcement issues after a grand jury in New York opted not to bring criminal charges in the case of Eric Garner, a black man killed when a white police officer placed him in a chokehold.

“It is incumbent upon all of us as Americans, regardless of race, region, faith, that we recognize this is an American problem and not just a black problem or a brown problem or a Native American problem; this is an American problem.

“When anybody in this country is not being treated equally under the law, that’s a problem. And it’s my job as president to help solve it,” he said.

Obama said the Garner case speaks “to the larger issues we’ve been talking about now for the last week, the last month, the last year and sadly for decades.”

“Unfortunately, we are seeing too many incidences where people just do not have confidence that folks are being treated fairly,” Obama said.

The president said he had spoken to Attorney General Eric Holder on the phone, and that the Justice Department would have additional information about the federal response to the grand jury finding.

Okay, people are not being treated fairly, and people across the country do not have confidence in the system. That might have some merit in the broader context.

Either people are not being treated fairly, or there is some wide perception in the public that they are not. But when we the people took issue with the border, we were told everything was fine and that we just had a perception problem.

Now based on a few individual instances, he tells us people are not being treated fairly. And that he supposedly stands on the side of the mistreated people. In other words, like an Al Sharpton in the Oval Office. He rolls all this out as if it were just a matter of fact that everyone knows. (contrary to his reaction to what most people think of the border)

Furthermore, if he wants to talk fairness, how about the way he treated this last flood of illegals over the border? Now he wants to lecture us about fairness? Or how about the way the IRS treated conservatives for years? Remember his get to the bottom of this…before his “not a smidgen of corruption” line. But he is a one-man crusader for fairness.

The real dirty truth about Obama is it very much matters who you are, what color you are, what demographic you are, what political party you belong to, or how much money you have, or what job you have, or who your employer is in the way you are treated. This is just how he and his Democrat colleagues see things. Now he once again comes out pushing his old canard about equality, fairness, and victimhood. And if you trust either he or Holder as the guardians for fairness, then you really need your head examined.

Just what we need, Obama vowing a campaign for fairness. He didn’t even demonstrate fairness in his presidential campaigns. And he didn’t push his Obamacare fairly.

Now, he is Obama, Captain fairness. Captain Hypocrite is more accurate. Any time Obama lectures about fairness, look out. These days lies travel faster than the speed of airwaves, especially from the bully pulpit.

Another Obamacare conflict

Obamacare Contractor Faces Renewed Conflict-of-Interest Allegations

As Obamacare enrollment period begins, lawmaker questions HHS official’s denial
WFB (excerpt)

At issue is a major contract awarded over the summer to Quality Software Services Inc. (QSSI). The Department of Health and Human Services brought on QSSI to mitigate a disastrous rollout of Healthcare.gov, the website for online enrollment in Obamacare’s federally run exchanges.

QSSI is owned by OptumInsight, a subsidiary of healthcare conglomerate UnitedHealth Group, which also owns an insurance company, UnitedHealthcare, that will offer more than 7,000 insurance plans through Healthcare.gov in 15 federally run exchanges next year.

That presents a potential conflict of interest, according to Sens. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) and Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa).

“Optum/QSSI will have access to a significant amount of data regarding highly sensitive aspects of FFE operations, including payment calculation for reinsurance, risk adjustment and risk corridors, and the required data collection to support these services,” the senators said in a letter to Marilyn Tavenner, the head of HHS’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which administers Healthcare.gov.

Three days before the enrollment period began, UnitedHealth Group chief executive Stephen Hemsley announced a host of changes among the company’s top executive leadership. Two senior Optum executives are now party to and in positions to influence the operations of UnitedHealthcare.

It’s not even a shock to see another huge conflict, or compromise of people’s data.

More fallout on Gruber

Live from Australia, it’s Prez know-nothing at the G-20 Summit commenting on Grubergate.

Obama: We didn’t mislead on health care bill

David Jackson, USA TODAY | November 16, 2014

President Obama says he and his administration did not mislead the public on the financing of the health care law, disputing statements by a consultant who said supporters of the bill took advantage of the “stupidity” of American voters.

“The fact that an adviser who was never on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is not a reflection on the actual process that was run,” Obama told reporters at a news conference following the G-20 summit in Brisbane, Australia.

“I would just advise every press outlet here: Pull up every clip and every story,” Obama said. “I think it’s fair to say there was not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and was fully transparent — it was a tough debate.

From Politico:

“While Gruber was not a staffer, he was a paid consultant whose models were used to help assess the impact of various policy changes being considered as part of health care legislation. Official logs show he visited the White House about a dozen times between 2009 and this year.

It’s official, not only did they kick the prestigious professor Gruber to the curb, they completely disconnect him to the Obamacare bill.  Fully transparent, extensively debated – and fair to say that?  Back to the lying mode.

Once again, the Oval Office Occupant says he is just learning about this. I imagine Gruber will be stunned to find he had nothing to do with it. All those personal meetings apparently counted for nothing. Gruber is deemed less important than the WH fence jumper.

Politico reported:

When the president was asked whether he had intentionally misled the public in order to get the law passed, he replied: “No. I did not.”

Obama said the notion that any provisions in the bill were hidden is absurd given the intensity of news coverage of the subject when the bill was being drafted and debated in Congress.

Gruber out-Grubered himself

NY Post:

ObamaCare architect was paid over $2M for consultation

By Geoff Earle – November 15, 2014

Now, a series of government contracts totaling more than $2 million for consulting services provided by the Harvard-trained economics professor are coming under scrutiny.

Eight states hired Gruber to help design their health exchanges after he banked nearly $400,000 in 2009 through contracts with the Department of Health and Human Services, records show.

Gruber and a handful of colleagues got state contracts totaling $1.6 million over seven years from Michigan ($481,000), Minnesota ($329,000), Vermont ($400,000) and Wisconsin ($400,000), The Washington Post reported.

He also advised Colorado, Connecticut, Maine and West Virginia.

It’s not clear how much those states added to his bank account.

And we thought Hillary Clinton had a lucrative circuit. I think I hear some song lyrics coming on: “who’s Grubering whom?” Who’s out-Grubering whom?
