Now we hear that Obama is “pivoting” away from the debacle that is Obamacare as well as the many scandals in his administration. One issue to which he plans to pivot is “immigration reform”. In other words, amnesty–preferably for all “undocumented immigrants”, preferably with citizenship included so that all former illegal aliens can vote, preferably without having to secure the border, so that more and more potential voters can invade our country and turn the whole place “blue”. You might wonder what that photo up there has to do with “immigration reform”. Well, I’ll tell you:
Obama bows to the Saudi king, which says something about the esteem Obama feels for the Saudi ruler. The Saudis are allegedly our allies, even though they oppress every female in their kingdom, which is a crime against humanity. They also have a rather un-Obama-like attitude towards illegal aliens: [emphasis added to quotes]
The immigrants gathered in Riyadh on Sunday before being transferred by bus to an assembly center. They are then to be deported, just a week after their seven-month amnesty expired.
Overnight, immigrants of mainly Ethiopian origin rioted in the impoverished Manfuhah neighborhood of the capital. Police said they intervened after the immigrants attacked Saudis and other foreign expats with rocks and knives. The Manfuhah district is home to many illegal immigrants, most of whom come from East Africa. …
On Monday police started a nationwide crackdown on illegal immigrants after the end of a seven-month amnesty for foreign workers whose permits had expired or who were not working for their official sponsors. Thousands of immigrants have since been deported from the country after they failed to legalize their status during the amnesty period, according to local media.
Nearly a million migrants from countries including Bangladesh, the Philippines, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Yemen, left the country during the amnesty period. The Ethiopian government on Saturday said it was repatriating citizens who had failed to meet the amnesty deadline. …
The government says its recent efforts to bring the hammer down on illegal immigrants are aimed at providing more jobs for its citizens. The unemployment rate in Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, is 12 percent.
In Saudi Arabia, amnesty means something far different from what progressives have in mind for our country. The Saudis gave illegals the option to come forward and register as foreign workers or be rounded up and deported. As a result, millions left on their own and the rest are in the process of being systematically rounded up at their homes or workplaces and deported. Not surprisingly, Saudis citizens are on board with the crackdown:
The sweeps and deportations appear to have broad backing by Saudis since it is aimed largely at creating more job opportunities for the kingdom’s own citizens, who comprise less than half of the country’s workforce.
Since the persons being deported from the kingdom are mostly black, one wonders if Obama is going to call the Saudi king on their behalf. Surely this is a racist policy.
“Yes, we can.” “Si, se puede.” نعم، يمكننا أن
To which the Saudis say,
“No, you can’t.” “No, no se puede.” لا، لا يمكنك
If only our president and our Congress would listen to what our citizens think about illegal aliens and how illegals take jobs (not to mention taxpayer-funded social benefits) from our CITIZENS. One poll found that 60% in the USA oppose Obama on immigration reform (the percentage is probably much higher).
Apparently, the Obama administration treats Saudi Arabia with special deference:
Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi King Abdullah [recently] to try and warm relations between the two countries. “A true relationship between friends is based on sincerity, candor and frankness,” said Prince Saudi al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, after the meeting.
But Kerry certainly wasn’t frank about Saudi Arabia’s brutal treatment of women; according to The New York Times, “Wary of inflaming Saudi sensitivities, Mr. Kerry sidestepped a reporter’s question about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, casting the debate as one ‘best left to Saudi Arabia.’” … Lecturing a sexist monarchy like Saudi Arabia is imperialism, according to the Obama administration.
So don’t expect Kerry or Obama to exhibit any sincerity, candor, or frankness on the issue of how Saudi Arabia treats black illegal aliens. Don’t expect them to lecture Saudi Arabia on their rather efficient method for dealing with illegal aliens who steal jobs from Saudi citizens.
Those who admire the Saudi approach to dealing with illegal immigration aren’t alone in thinking that the Saudis have the right idea:
Well there’s a novel concept – you mean the Saudis are actually punishing people who break their laws? Seems kinda racist. …
Well that’s all very backward for Saudis to think that illegals would take jobs away from citizens … They’re not as forward-thinking as we Americans, who let illegals rally for amnesty on our front lawn while locking out war heroes from their monuments.
It’s curious, isn’t it? Conservatives in the USA are accused of waging a “war on women“, yet you never hear those same braying voices decry the very real war on women that takes place daily in the Muslim world.
When conservative politicians stand up for the rights of U.S. citizens to not have their economic future–or the future of our very Republic–threatened by waves of illegal aliens, they’re called “racist”. Yet you never hear those same braying voices decry how illegal aliens are treated in Muslim countries.
Obama’s plan to give amnesty to illegal aliens will indeed “fundamentally transform” the USA. We cannot allow amnesty to be rammed down our throats, like Obamacare was foisted upon us:
“The Senate Gang of Eight bill is yet another tragedy for the American worker,” [Representative Mo] Brooks said. “It either legalizes or imports more than 44 million foreigners over the next decade. When you consider that our entire population is only a little over 300 million, to have a roughly 15 percent increase in our population through legalization of illegals and importation of more foreigners, that’s quite significant. The dramatic increase in the labor supply will, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) over the next decade, increase the unemployment rate for American workers, cut the average income for American workers—those who are lucky enough to get a job—and cut our Gross Domestic Product [GDP] per capita.”
To “import or legalize” 44 million foreigners will “fundamentally transform” this country. Forever. There will be no going back, and Obama knows that. In fact, he counts on it.
Amnesty MUST be stopped. Our borders MUST be closed. NOW.
For what it’s worth, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, said today that the House will not be rushed, that they will never go to “conference” on the Senate amnesty bill, and that this issue is dead for this year, at least.

“Making prisons ‘look like America'”
“The racial grievance industry, with the White House’s blessing, has a plan afoot to up the relative percentage of whites and Hispanics in America’s prisons by keeping young black men out.
This week Broward County Public Schools in Florida reached an agreement with the NAACP and local law enforcement to end what is sometimes called the “school-to-prison” pipeline.
These entities will end the pipeline not by addressing the social dysfunction that leads to crime but by refusing to put students in the pipeline until they commit their fifth criminal misdemeanor.
You read that right, fifth. For the first four incidents, “administrators are instructed to try and resolve the situation without an arrest” through counseling and other such nostrums.
“Everybody deserves a second chance,” said local NAACP honcho Marsha Ellison. “And all students will be treated equally no matter what the color of their skin.”
Despite the NAACP’s happy talk of a color-blind program, its very involvement suggests these programs are not.
Broward officials had to look no further than the Trayvon Martin case at neighboring Miami-Dade County Public Schools to see how racist and counter-productive these programs typically are.”
Everybody may deserve a second chance (after apologizing, reforming, paying their dues to society, and making reparations to the victims) but does every black person need a third and fourth chance, too? Racism.
Broward County is, by and large, Debbie Wasserman-Schultze territory.
“Vice President Joe Biden’s message to immigration reform advocates: Don’t let your issue die like gun control did.
Speaking on a conference call of Catholic clergy and other faith leaders, Biden said it will be incumbent upon immigration reformers to be louder and more engaged with Congress than reform opponents.
“Work the districts so these members understand how all their constituents feel, not just the loudest ones,” Biden said. [60% of ALL who will admit it to Pew, say they are AGAINST amnesty, Joe.] “This kind of reminds me of the gun control kind of fights we had, and gun safety. You know, the people who don’t want anything changed to have a more rational position, they’re the ones who show up in large numbers. The ones who strongly support us, they don’t show up. [Note the passive/aggressive snark–if you don’t agree with Joe, you’re not as “rational”.] You guys have to show up.” …
POLITICO obtained an invitation to the call, which was intended to be a private conversation with advocates. The call was organized by the Catholic social justice agency Network, which plans to distribute 11,000 pro-immigration reform postcards to members of Congress Wednesday. …
Several times on the call Biden referred to comments made by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), the foremost opponent of immigration reform in the House, that suggested all immigrants crossing the border from Mexico are ferrying drugs.
“Real good Christian comment,” Biden said. “He may be a good Christian, but his comments sure the hell aren’t, excuse my language.” …”
btw, it’s a mortal sin to get drunk. 🙂
About this NETWORK:
“On December 17, 1971, 47 Catholic Sisters from across the U.S. gathered at Trinity College in Washington, D.C. They were involved in education, healthcare, community organizing and other direct service activities, and their goal was to shape a new ministry of justice.
This was a time when the Catholic Church was undergoing dramatic changes in response to Vatican II reforms and calls from the Vatican and U.S. Bishops to seek “Justice in the World”. Women religious were joining in the waves of civil rights, feminist and anti-war activism that were sweeping the U.S.
The 47 Sisters voted to form a national “network” of Sisters to lobby for federal policies and legislation that promote economic and social justice. This was the founding of NETWORK, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby. … Their justice agenda ranged from global hunger to nuclear weapons and women’s rights. … NETWORK is also highly visible and active on other critical issues such as peacemaking, comprehensive immigration reform, housing, poverty, federal budget priorities, trade and hunger.
NETWORK’s mission is to be “a Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace.” Issues that the organization lobbies on include:
Peace in Iraq through economic development
Investment [taxes] in human needs globally and locally …”
All the progressive buzzwords! They’re not exactly representative of Catholics:
“… The bus tour is a response to a blistering critique of American nuns released in April by the Vatican’s doctrinal office, which included the accusation that the nuns are outspoken on issues of social justice, but silent on other issues the church considers crucial: abortion and gay marriage. … Network is not formally affiliated with the Leadership Conference. But Sister Simone and other nuns angered some bishops by lobbying to help pass the Obama administration’s health care overhaul.…”
Sr. Simone is a particular favorite of Barry’s:
“Days after receiving a hug of gratitude from U.S. President Barack Obama at the signing of his new health-care legislation, Sister Simone Campbell is still fielding her share of angry phone calls. … Sister Campbell – along with more than 50,000 other Roman Catholic nuns across the United States – has already reached the people who mattered, by staunchly supporting Obama’s health-care bill in a week when a debate about abortion coverage threatened to derail it completely. The nuns fiercely parted ways with the country’s Roman Catholic bishops, who insisted the law would allow the funding of abortion and opposed it on that basis.
Their support – described in one media report as “an eloquent lobby of nuns” – was seen as a key element in the bill’s success because it made the legislation more palatable to Catholic politicians. …”
I wonder what Simone thinks now, as things IMPLODE? btw, AP announcing that Barry’s going to administratively announce that insurance companies can continue to sell the policies he thinks are substandard. AS PREDICTED. He will say they CAN, but now they’ve already cancelled the policies and restructured everything to suit Obamacare and it won’t be easily feasible or cost effective to go back (even if Obama and his thugs won’t strong-arm them behind the scenes, somehow, which you know they will). Then, when the companies don’t re-up the policies, why the DemoncRATS and Barry will simply DEMONIZE “big insurance” and blame those evil capitalists who WANT 5,000,000 Americans to “suffer”.
For all the good it will do, they’ll try to impeach Holder.
“The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare seems to be in the headlines every day because of all of the problems surrounding the launch. And while most realize the law is funded in part by the individual mandate and penalty tax, it is also being funded in ways that are not discussed as much in the media. …
It is a tax on high-income taxpayers when they sell their homes. …
If you are single with an adjusted gross income of $200,000 or file jointly with an income of $250,000 or more, you may be impacted. Once you sell your home, any profits over the first $500,000 are already subject to a capital gains tax. And now those profits will have an additional 3.8% tax to fund Obamacare.
Aioso noted that there is also a lot of confusion surrounding this tax and many homeowners know little about it. …” [BY DESIGN!]
Now this is just another thing about Obamacare that won’t hit the news until it HAPPENS. THEN, as with these cancellations, people will finally wake up. WE knew all this but too many people lack the ability to IMAGINE or PROJECT words (or even read the bill) into what reality will be like when the words take effect.
The people who designed Obamacare are evil geniuses. Because of that, I was pondering that recent story about Ms. Sundby, who found that she can’t buy health insurance ACROSS COUNTY LINES!! Apparently some people who live in adjacent counties could save as much as $3000 a year just by moving to the other county.
IF that’s true, then put that into your head along with the FACT that another of the globalist schemes is to FORCE everyone to move into urban areas and depopulate rural areas (allegedly so you use less gasoline). Could it be that this is yet another disguised goal of Obamacare–to reorder population demographics? They miss nothing in their evil schemes. I haven’t yet found details on this but I’ll suspect this is another ulterior motive if I find that it’s the urban areas with the lower premiums.
hey Miri, just watching right now Obama and he’s discussing healthcare, more fixes about the plans……..Can’t help but notice his nervous tic…his right cheek muscle is going crazy as his eye blinks…..it’s truly a sign of uncomfortable confrontation. I began to notice a little sweat on his upper lip too (slightly visible). His cheek was nonstop spastic-ing. Something else as I stood right up close to my tv…..it’s the weirdest thing….there looks like sort of charcoal smudges on his eyebrows……I don’t notice anyone elses appearing this way. You’ve got to see it for yourself. Can the camera do this somehow. The ligjhting
I just couldn’t figure it out. Even his hair looks a bit smudgy. I donn’t know if it’s digital TV that does it or what the heck
Oh, I’ll bet he has a tic. All this talk of fraud, impeachment, panic, failure. THE ONE cannot fail! Who dares to suggest such a thing? He’s omnipotent. I wish I’d watched. I ordinarily avoid him but it may have been worth seeing him sweat. If anybody finds video, let us see it!
Here it is Alfy. 🙂
it’s where the press was asking questions and on TV he’s bigger and up close…..the whole time he answered questions his right face just at the top of his cheek (actually sometimes the whole cheek) twitched. He is good at hiding it with hand gestures and moving his head about ..not keeping his face directly straight on enough to deflect. It’s not noticeable on this video…and I don’t think most people would ever notice….however I was 10 inches from my TV.
I’m going to watch without the sound.
I agree completely with your thoughts on forcing everyone into urban areas and the health insurance schemes. I just don’t know how. I have noticed that a major research hospital is buying up many older county hospitals and is building small outpost clinics…..one just happens to be in an area where they are trying real hard to put the new rail transportation in place and build up compact living and development just outside of a small pristine historical area. THe zoning laws do reinforce the schemes as well. IT’s happing all over the place.
Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh pointed out that the policies being sold on the exchanges, the individual ones, force people into going to COMMUNITY clinics and hospitals, NOT the big hospitals that everyone associates with excellence. The networks require people to go to what are probably today’s equivalent of the old “public” hospitals that people without insurance had to go to. This is the “leveling” function that all commies like (while, however, the ELITES continue to go to the big, expensive, QUALITY hospitals because they can PAY out of pocket (or we can pay) for their care). This will, after next year, include those whose employers cancel their policies rather than pay the fees/fines involved. It will also cover the people who lose their policies when their employees cut their jobs or their hours.
“According to a New York Times report, the federal insurance exchanges service roughly 2,500 counties; 58 percent of those counties only have one or two insurance providers offering coverage, and of those that only have one or two providers, most are rural. Though the Obama administration optimistically claims that 95 percent of Americans have access to at least two insurers, many experts, according to the Times article, say that two carriers might not create enough competition to actually lower prices. As a result, many in the rural regions with few options are facing the highest premiums of any place with federal insurance marketplaces.
The Times says that many insurance companies have not attempted to enter low-population areas because, among other reasons, the potential customer pool is low, many times one hospital dominates the area, providing little leverage for insurers to negotiate reimbursement rates, and because it is difficult to challenge dominant insurers in a region.
Most counties with only one insurance provider are in the South, predominantly in Mississippi and Alabama. [RED states]
Other plans to increase competition have faced setbacks, including nonprofit co-ops, which were to provide an alternative to major health-care insurers. The co-ops are experiencing budget shortfalls and many have not even gotten off the ground because of limitations in federal funding.”
Background on the “FORCED DEPOPULATION” schemes. He doesn’t, so far as I can see, mention health care but it would work to further their agenda (21) well, too.
I often am reminded of What michelle o. was doing while serving on that hospital board. Remember they were sending patients out of the hospital to nearby clinics.
Then too, the giant corporate hospitals and private hospitals (like the one i was referring to in my previous post are the ones building these clinics, I figure they’re sort of like an expansion of county health departments. These giant hospitals stand to make out real cozy with our new tax dollars.
And they’ll all be “persons of color” and friends of Barry and Mooch, if at all possible.
Here’s a sad story. You can’t make this up. In order to accurately determine the age of one of the oldest living creatures on the planet, “scientists” kill the creature, which turned out to be even older than they thought! http://www.breitbart.com/InstaBlog/2013/11/14/Scientists-Confirm-World-s-Oldest-Creature-But-Kill-it-Determining-Its-Age

~ Allen West ~ said it best in my view. “Obama is a low level socialist agitator.”
To me, and I can only speak for me, Obloody is lower down than whale manure and is dragging this Republic into his depravity, where he is most comfortable.
The “I don’t know” virus is contagious. Recently, Comey, new head of the FBI, claimed in a hearing that HE DIDN’T KNOW that the administration’s peeps were using the excuse that an on-going FBI investigation prevents them from making Benghazi survivors available to the committees! He didn’t know! Everybody in the country who’s paying attention knows that, but Comey testified that he didn’t know! Doesn’t that make you put your faith in the FBI? They, who are supposed to protect us, serve us, and enforce laws? Anyway, Comey also said that he has no problem with letting the survivors testify! So we’ll see how Kerry and/or Holder deal with that, but surely they’ll find some other excuse to block them OR we can be assured that they have already GOT TO THEM sufficiently so that they know the survivors won’t be saying anything that damages Barry. How hard would it be, anyway? I mean, these guys all depend upon taxpayer-funded salaries, benefits, pensions, health insurance (probably required for the badly wounded). Not to mention the history of what’s happened to others who went against the tide.
GO ANNIE….. CRACK SMOKING???? IMBECILE? sounds RIGHT!

“So the establishment RINOs are vacillating between Plan A: a bill that proposes to delay the implementation of Obamacare until such time as all the incumbent Democrats running for reelection in 2014 win, or, Plan B: a bill that addresses the unconstitutional law requiring citizens to purchase a product they don’t want to buy, by augmented it with another unconstitutional bill that requires corporations to offer a product that they don’t want to sell.”
That sums it up nicely. btw, I have no doubt that the allegation that Malia is allergic to peanuts is yet another LIE to make things all about Barry or at least, by extension, his genetic (?) offspring.

THIS NUTCASE MARXIST/SOCIALIST administration EXPLAINED IN A NUTSHELL.
Excellent nutshell! That covers it all.
Benghazi,reports indicate their was no lull in the fighting, http://shoebat.com/2013/11/13/new-problem-benghazi-accountability-review-board
What a surprise! They lied; but Barry knew nothing. He’ll get to the bottom of it, though. He’ll have a committee do an investigation.
SPEAKING OF IMPEACHING HOLDER,
I notice this morning the prez has chosen his fix to his healthcare problems:
Prosecutoral Discretion, that might not be spelled right,
but I guess he’s now sayin’ to the insurance companies you can go ahead
and break the law, sell non-compliant obumacare polices, and the feds won’t prosecute you (well at least not if you stay on side)
Not being prosecuted isn’t the same as not breaking the law,
you can still be prosecuited later.
Behavior that I mght engage in privately is not the same as me being in charge of a large company employing thousands of poeple. If the Board of Directors sanction law breaking, they expose the company to future risk and basically violate their contract with the company to be Directors.
They’d be fools to do it but at least obuma can now say “It’s the Insurance Companies Fault, I tried”
Hopefully nobody will believe him.
It’s so way different than not prosecuting an illegal alien that even if you are only a first year law student (as Megyn would say) you’d know this was a non-starter.
good early morning to you Dave….by the looks of our avatars we appear to be related.
Hey that’s spooky.
I try to post early coz I figure the spys haven’t got up yet so they won’t
be recording all my stuff!
They know who we all are regardless of when we post (waves yet again to NSA monitor) . But you know that, dave,
Stories in the lamestream admit that this was only a political ploy to “successfully punt” the problem TO the insurance companies. It makes the issue complex so that they can create a simple meme: Big insurance is the culprit. They chose not to “help” people keep their insurance, even though Barry tried. If premiums go up because now it’s fundamentally roiled the entire marketplace, well, that will take the blame off Obamacare and allow them to blame the premium increases on the INSURANCE COMPANIES. They’ve done it before, successfully, with the banks when they blamed them for complying with laws that forced them to give risky loans. The “low information voters” bought it because they didn’t bother to educate themselves and Obama’s peeps do a great job of preventing the media from educating the populace.
Miri, may I quote you without using your name?
Because your assessment is so spot on perfect it needs to be shared. But I am a firm believer in attribution
Either way is okay with me. TY.
I was watching the Kellyfile yesterday and seeing this thing getting more broken by the day.
I will not be surprised if one day Obumma goes on TV and says he is sorry
he made such a mess of everything and the only way to fix anything for anybody is he just removes all restrictions for Medicare so everyone can have free healthcare regardless of their age or nationality or immigration status.
I wonder if he can waive the restrictions by so called executive order.
Now I don’t want to ascribe chess master genius to a moron but he does have a team of handlers.
Mind you I didn’t say pay for it. He can leave that problem till later and if the Republicans don’t want to raise everyone’s taxes he can say “look, you now all have free health care and the Republicans are trying to take it from you.” That is a different “doorstep-ready” campaign position than what trying to provide you with a new policy that you pay for delivers.
For a low information electorate, ya know, it just might work.
Oh, great prediction, dave m. That’s EXACTLY what they’ve wanted all along. I said before that none of this chaos upsets Barry because it was the plan all along–DESTROY the current system beyond repair, make sure Obamacare creates chaos, and then go out there like a hero and say that the “only way” to fix the system is to make single payer a reality. Notice how even in supposed defeat (as a “wounded man”), Barry doubles down, won’t accept any bill that repeals any part of Obamacare, won’t accept any bill that extends the amnesty for cancelled policies beyond a year, won’t accept any bill that allows people to continue to buy these cancelled policies, and plans to blame the states and the insurance companies if people still can’t keep their old policies. And he’s going to blame ANY premium increases on the insurance companies. I expect, also, that if the DemoncRATS do fear the increases in premiums, that Barry’s going to come out and BAIL OUT the insurance companies, WITH OUR MONEY, OF COURSE. Wait for it. It’s coming. It’s what they do: Spend other people’s money to buy themselves votes.
He can waive some of these restrictions because the DHHS CREATED them in the first place. Many more policies WERE grandfathered in under the law UNTIL DHHS deliberately created regulations defining what violated the grandfather clause, including a premium increase of, say, just one cent. They created the chaos administratively, so they can undo many of these regulations the same way. But now it’s too late, of course, but they count on it being too hard for insurance companies to explain that to the general public.
It’s just like how he keeps repeating the lie that the current system “was broken” so they had to come up with something and we can’t go back. Well, it WASN’T broken until he broke it on purpose. All the people whose policies were cancelled would say “go back to what we had,” but he’s doubling down. The entire SCHEME depended upon everybody losing their current policies and being forced to buy policies they don’t want, at higher premiums, SO THEY CAN REDISTRIBUTE THEIR MONEY TO OTHERS.
h/t Gordo’s link: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/10/21/why-obamacare-is-fantastic-success/
btw, one of the biggest obots ever wrote posts defining birthers as Stalinistic commies. I’m serious. And it’s as I predicted. The game is to accuse your opponents of exactly what you’re doing, isn’t it?
Another btw, quantitative easing is another redistributionist ploy that’s working. Ever noticed that your savings and investments aren’t earning squat? That’s by design. It’s only “fair”.
What’d I tell you? I just heard this on Dana Loesch’s show: http://blog.heritage.org/2013/11/14/administration-offering-insurers-obamacare-bailout/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%253A+FoundryConservativePolicyNews+%2528The+Foundry%253A+Conservative+Policy+News.%2529
“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) today released guidance to state insurance commissioners implementing President Obama’s “fix” for people losing their insurance. Not only does it violate the explicit text of Obamacare itself, but it also raises the possibility of insurers getting access to a new pool of bailout funds.
As previously reported, the Administration’s latest plan waives many of the costly mandates included in Obamacare that are scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2014. The guidance says that these requirements will be waived—in clear violation of the text of the law—for one year for all plans renewed between January 1, 2014, and October 1, 2014. CMS also implies these waivers could be extended, stating it will “assess…whether to extend [the waivers] beyond the specified timeframe.”
However, the real story is buried in the final paragraph of the three-page memo, where CMS implies it is exploring options to provide additional payments to insurers to offset their losses from this Obamacare debacle:
Though this transitional policy was not anticipated by health insurance issuers when setting rates for 2014, the risk corridor program should help ameliorate unanticipated changes in premium revenue. We intend to explore ways to modify the risk corridor program final rules to provide additional assistance. … President Obama’s extra-legal “fix” could now result in the Administration offering insurers a bailout totaling billions of dollars more.”
Today Barry is meeting in secret with insurance company executives. They’re going to use billions of OUR MONEY to bail out the companies so they can “save” Obamacare. There’s nothing in the law to prevent it and it can be unlimited, apparently.
The evil geniuses built this bailout into the Obamacare’s thousands of pages that nobody read. Rubio is on it and plans to introduce a bill to REPEAL THE INSURANCE COMPANY BAILOUT THAT SAVES OBAMACARE AT OUR EXPENSE. http://www.conservativeintel.com/2013/11/15/rubio-bill-would-repeal-obamacares-insurer-bailout/
” … Allahpundit (h/t) says he’s 90% sure this won’t pass. I’m 100% sure it won’t pass. And that it’s brilliant.
This is well worth a vote, because it will highlight the bailout provision, which most Americans aren’t aware of at all. And when the first bailout is announced next year — which may not happen until after the 2014 midterms — it will harden everyone’s resolve to see Obamacare repealed.”
There are links there to more stories that explain this “risk corridor” bailout. Figures that they’d have some fancy name for a bailout.
“… Rubio spokesman Alex Conant said the Tea Party-aligned senator and potential 2016 presidential candidate is concerned that the fix Obama proposed would increase the likelihood that insurance companies would need a federal bailout. And the existing law would effectively give Obama a blank check to deal with it, he said. …’
Sorry for keeping all on, but if obumma did just open Medicare to everyone by executive order, or by using prosecutoral discretion in notprosecuting people “ineligible” for Medicare to receive free treatment, than in a relatively short period of time he would bankrupt most of the insurance providers. A small few mighth survive selling “private insurance” for those people who are well of enough to stump up the cash for a guarantee of treatment to their liking, but it would not be many.
In a few short years there would be no chance of reconstituting private insured healthcare anyways.
And unless the doctors and hospitals all decide to choose another profession or country, (some will), the only employer in town will be the government.
Maybe I shouldn’t ready those wacky websites but I’m pretty sure this guess doesn’t have anything to do with Comet ISON !!!
so what’s the big secret?
September 2013 who knew?
At: “The Conservative Treehouse”
“Truth From Powers: “He’s just creating chaos” …”
BigMamaTEA’s comment: “Alinsky Rule # 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.”
Hmmm..Kind of sums up the Lyin ‘King’s entire presidency.”

She found religion. That explains the truth.
Bout time too Miri. 🙂
Of course, I noticed that the story of Powers religious evolution came out before her critiquing so the msm followers would already have shut her words out because she is now one of the hated. See how conservatives jumped right into this? They wet their pants over having her come over to their side, instantly making her not one to be listened to. Just think if the followers had heard her talking while they thought she was still one of them?
good point HOOT
Good point, WAH.
Try this one:
If you get bored, fast forward to the 29th minute
this story never made sense when it came out
Round two for James O’Keefe:
Another secret security force; this one is in the bill that nobody read but should have read to find out what’s in it.
Acting lessons on how to be Presidential. http://www.prisonplanet.com/mancow-muller-obama-is-an-actor-trained-by-harry-lennix.html
“During an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Chicago radio host Eric ‘Mancow’ Muller revealed that actor Harry Lennix told him he was hired to train Obama how to look presidential by mimicking the actor’s demeanor and body language. Lennix, who was born and grew up in Chicago, gave frequent lectures before he became an actor, while also teaching music and civics in the Chicago Public School system. Lennix is best known for his role in the recent Superman Man of Steel movie and his part as White House Chief of Staff in the ABC television series Commander in Chief.
Muller, who knew Obama in Chicago before he became president, said Lennix told him that, “He was the actor hired to teach Obama to be Harry Lennix – watch The Blacklist and you can see Obama – this is an actor that we hired in our president.”
“He’s leaving our studio and sees a cut-out of Obama and says ‘he’s a rat bastard’ – oh because I’m black I have to like Obama,” said Muller.
“He says, Mancow do I remind you of him?….Barack Obama is me, you’ve seen me on TV, you’ve seen me on movies, he is me.”
Mancow says Lennix told him, “He mimicked me, he followed me for years, and they wanted me to train him and teach him how to act … like an educated south side African-American,” adding that Lennix thought Obama was “very stupid” and had “been taught to act like this.”
Mancow’s producer, who also witnessed the conversation, confirmed its veracity and added that Lennix said the only person who knows Obama better than him is Michelle Obama. Mancow expressed the hope that he wouldn’t get Lennix in trouble for revealing the conversation, fearing that the actor could now face an audit. He also revealed that Lennix said he knew Obama would be president from at least 1998 if not earlier. …”
There’s your meme again, WAH. He’s stupid. Oh, my. He looks more like Barry than Barry:
If he really thinks Barry’s a “rat bastard” and he knows him nearly as well as Mooch, then he needs to do a service for the country and spill the beans on all that he knows.
It’s Friday, so Barry must dump an outrage:
“The Obama administration will allow some relatives of U.S. service members living in the country illegally to stay, according to a policy directive issued Friday. The nine-page memorandum is the latest in a series of immigration policy changes made by President Barack Obama since he took office. The department has long had the power to stop deportations for relatives of military members and veterans, but Friday’s memo lays out how and when it can be used.
The latest order gives U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials the power to “parole in place” immigrant spouses, children and parents of current U.S. service members, reservists and veterans. The change means that those immigrants can apply to legally live in the United States. … Obama is relying more often on making relatively minor administrative changes to America’s complicated immigration system, as the likelihood dims that Congress will overhaul the law. …”
Hmmm. The Commander in Chief is currently serving, so does that mean this executive order comes just in time to save Uncle Omar from deportation, on the off chance the the judge will vote him off the island on December 3, which is when his hearing is scheduled? Well, so far as we know, Omar is not a spouse, child, or parent of a veteran but that doesn’t mean Barry won’t have more tricks up his sleeve before Dec. 3 rolls around.

I’m a victim; you’re a victim; everybody’s a victim. Kind of takes the “fun” out of it.
Perhaps I am in moderation ?
2 missing comments from about 20 minutes ago or so.
was listening to this so to add a live interview:
Nothing in moderation. Nothing in spam, either. Can’t explain it. It’s concerning, though.
Is this where the other two are? https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/round-up-illegal-aliens-and-deport-them-so-says-saudi-arabia/comment-page-1/#comment-126275
yep! Thanks Miri.
Nope. They’re not it. The two I posted and saw them post were about Tom Fife and the story about “Roman”. Thanks for checking.
Now that’s very strange because I don’t see them anywhere. If you saw them post, then WHAT happened to them? I was offline since Friday afternoon until this morning, so I wasn’t “moderating” or doing anything. I do notice that WP is acting weird this morning. Multiple times I’ve had to hit enter more than once in order to get a comment to post.
Anybody else missing comments? Papoose, I triple checked. The last comment before those two above, that I linked to, was the one about Mooch doing that nasty squat dance or whatever the hell she was doing. That was posted the other day. So if your two about Fife and Roman posted and are now missing, then I haven’t any idea where they went or WHY anybody would disappear them.
Its just one of those things, I guess Miri. I was following the Mancow interview about the actor thing… found something relative to it and posted it. Then found a transcript of his discussion at the dinner party, etc. I don’t know if I told you but it happened before. Specifically, the September 11th post. Then after that I started getting that message “sorry you’re comment couldn’t be posted. Its probably something here on my end. Thanks for checking into it. 🙂
the first video ya’ll posted with ms. karen hudes disappeared. And today I posted and explanation about Bari SHabazz and the lawyer that took care of his case on the record.
it never posted, but I tried, then it just disappeared out of the comments box. Also today I was able to type directly to your comments , not in the comment box, but directly onto the site. IT was strange….I didn’t try to see what would happen if I left it up or hit post….I deleted it.
The first one about Hudes was a couple posts back: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2013/11/11/veterans-day-commemoration/comment-page-1/#comment-126162 You wrote a comment about Bari Shabazz on this post, here: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/round-up-illegal-aliens-and-deport-them-so-says-saudi-arabia/comment-page-1/#comment-126399
It sounds like WordPress is screwing up again.
BUt I wrote two posts about SHabazz and one disappeared
Oh, okay. I can’t explain it. I wish I knew what’s going on. The only trouble I’ve been having is hitting the enter key to post and nothing happens, so I have to hit it over and over and then it tells me that I’m posting a duplicate comment.

“Up Next – Race Based Car Loans ?”
“(Via Moonbattery) America under liberal rule is a racist tyranny. Think that is hyperbole? Then talk to a car dealer about this:
[T]he new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] is ginning up a campaign to use “disparate impact” analysis to charge racism in auto lending. That’s the theory that looks at statistics to prove bias without evidence of specific discriminatory intent. Never mind the financial or other circumstances of the borrowers beyond their race.
That is, car dealers must provide a proportionately equivalent number of car loans, at the same interest rate, to all racial groups, regardless of whether members of these groups are equally likely to repay the loan. Essentially, if Customer X has money in the bank and has never missed a day of work in his life, and Customer Y is living on welfare and just got out of jail, they must be regarded as equal credit risks if Customer Y is lucky enough to be black.
If all of this sounds familiar, you could be thinking of the Community Reinvestment Act, spawned by Carter but doubled down on by Clinton and Obama, by which the federal government forced banks to make mortgage loans on a racial basis lest they be accused of “redlining.” This was a primary cause of the 2008 economic crash.”
Seems that I remember that Elizabeth Warren was involved in this particular ploy. Yep. http://www.forbes.com/sites/jimhenry/2013/06/29/some-house-republicans-dig-in-against-the-consumer-financial-protection-bureau-and-auto-loan-measures/
“House Republicans are keeping up a fight against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which turned its sights this year on the auto lending industry. … Bachus was also one of 35 House Republicans who wrote a letter recently to the CFPB to express concerns about what the group called the CFPB’s “onerous” requirements, according to the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, Arlington, Va. … CFPB in March accused auto lenders of giving dealers too much leeway to set the final interest rates on loans negotiated at the dealership. Dealers earn a cut of the interest rate.
The CFPB says that leeway creates an opportunity for dealers potentially to discriminate against legally protected classes of borrowers, such as minorities. Dealer groups such as the National Automobile Dealers Association, McLean, Va., strongly deny condoning discrimination. But even if the discrimination is unintentional, it’s still discrimination under the CFPB’s so-called disparate impact theory, if protected groups pay higher rates than other borrowers. … The CFPB was created in 2010 and launched in 2011 as part of Dodd-Frank financial reform. Its first interim director was Elizabeth Warren, now a freshman Democratic senator from Massachusetts.
Many conservative Republicans vowed to block the liberal Warren’s appointment, so President Obama appointed Richard Cordray, a former state attorney general for Ohio, as CFPB director instead. Cordray was appointed during a Congressional recess in January 2012, because a group of House Republicans had promised to oppose Cordray’s appointment, too, over the issue of a single director to run the CFPB vs. a commission. …”
btw, as you may recall, the SCOTUS ruled that recess apppointments like Cordray’s were illegal, but they pulled a fast one and got him confirmed by the Senate.
The Truth about preexisting conditions. Good Article. http://csteventucker.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/the-truth-about-preexisting-conditions
i love getting information like this James, Thanks. This will be a great help to know this stuff for my sister inlaw.
[When someone has a serious preexisting condition,] “this is the worst time to cancel someone’s coverage. And, that is precisely why Public Law 104-191 was written and passed by Congress in 1997. It was written to protect Americans from such a situation. I am writing this article not just to help Bill but to help all Americans who are suffering from an ongoing preexisting condition. If you are one of the 5 million Americans who have already received a policy termination letter or one of the 14 million Americans who will soon receive a letter, you need to print out Public Law 104-191 and highlight section 2742 and then contact an attorney. Or, if you have access to your governor – as Bill does – (his governor is the awesome Nikki Haley) contact your governor or state Attorney General’s office because your health insurer is violating a Federal law based on a posting in the Federal register that was not passed by Congress and as such does not trump an existing Federal law.
Since Bill did nothing wrong. No fraud was committed. His health insurer is not leaving the state and they charged him more based on a preexisting condition they are in violation of Public Law 104-191 section 2742. As such, they have no legal right to terminate his coverage, regardless of a posting in the Federal register.
Want to know the best part? I just heard from Bill and after contacting Governor Nikki Haley and his insurance company and reading to them section 2742 of Public Law 104-191 his insurer has decided to keep his policy in force because he has a chronic illness. …”
That author points out that it was also a lie for Barry to say, over and over again, that if you get sick your health insurer can raise your premiums or cancel your coverage. It’s been against the law for 17 years! But this is interesting, too, with regard to Barry’s lie that his mother’s insurer wouldn’t pay for her final illness:
“Worse yet, the president described his mother as an indigent woman who was ‘pretty much drained of her resources.’ The truth is Anne Dunham received a base pay in 1995 of $82,500, plus a housing allowance and a car, to work in Indonesia for Development Alternatives Inc. of Bethesda. Today, adjusting for inflation, that salary would be equivalent to $123,500. This is far from indigent. Today, the Washington Post rightfully gives this story ‘Three Pinocchios”.”
Mir, the DIA inc. in Beteshda is basically, almost word for word the same type organization as the PIDE org. that Joseph Ndesandjo is a part of. Did you know that DIA invites partners to work with them if they are businessies in the HUD zone….or if they are minority run companies or Women entrepenuers. Same with PIDE> understand that these groups use USAID money and UFID gov. money and the guys who founded DIA also utilize the microfinance activities that Dunham has been famous for.
No surprise, really. Did we have that name for her employer before? It didn’t ring a bell.
They’ve ALWAYS been employee owned, they say: http://dai.com/faq
But where’s the proof she ever worked for DIA…IT’s been FORD found., English teacher at the embassy, she worked for Peter Geithner, she had an address in NEW YORK with Ford. We were told she worked in all the countries when with the Ford F. and USAID, she worked in Jakarta bank, the World Bank and some Women’s banking…I’m assuming in microfinance most the time….Exactly when was she part of this Maryland outfit? OH yeah and she’s an anthropologist…my foot. Some anthropologist, huh?
i listened to and hour and a half radio broadcast last night with the Trowbridge women and that lawyer. They kept talking about their years of research yet they cannot present any valuable papers to prove anything. Her connections with MAlcom , SHabazz joAnn NEWman is petty sketchy an has big gaps in it….big leaps. THe biggest leap, while they know nothing hardly on Anna Duke yet they made the leap that MS Duke was around malcolm X in 1958 or so….which if they knew anything about her they’d know it was not plausible . We know why it’s not likely. THey assumed because ms. duke has aliases that joann Newman may be one of her aliases…….THis also tells me they know nothing of joann newman either. They’re trolls or either seekers of personal gain…one or the other. IN the whole hour and a half, i learned nothing except the Bari SHabaz thing…which we found ourselves, was of interest. Only one tidbit was that the case for Bai SHabazz showed there was a bench warant for him because he didn’t show up back then and so it was a lawyer for Bari SHabazz that came back later in 2003 and 2005 to pay off the thing or get it removed from the record. I’d say this did provoke the question that if they knew a lowyer came in to do this…..then I thought find out who that lawyer was.
Good question. I guess we got that nugget from the Janny Scott novella which is nothing but a pack of spin. Hey, check this out. Tons of videos; not sure we’ve seen all of them. I just ran across this: http://videoflavour.net/videos/watch/ujUmmGKYpPo/Obama%27s-Kenyan-Family.html And check out photo number 3 at this link: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/barack-obamas-women/2012/05/11/gIQAoKbIIU_gallery.html#photo=3
OMG. Did you really hear Trowbridge on radio? Which lawyer did you mean? I put no stock in whatever Trowbridge says, especially after her “Nancy Cantor” fiasco. There’s no evidence that I’ve seen, other than that tribute to Malcolm X in the paper after he died, that anybody named Jo Ann Newman even existed. But okay, so she wrote that article so must have existed, but what a “leap”, as you say, to making her Barry’s mother (not to mention making Malcolm X his father). They find a photo of a girl (arguably a girl) on the street after the assassination and turn her into Jo Ann and then turn her into Barry’s mother. We know they seek personal gain because they charge subscriptions to read their unsubstantiated drivel.
