Selling Obamacare – Kids, Librarians, Hollywood, but not NFL

Editor’s Note – How do you sell a loser program? Get kids and librarians to push the product, try to get the NFL, NBA and Hollywood to advocate it, and we are sure these are not the last ploys the administration is going to try and employ to sell the Obamacare ‘swamp properties” to America.

Fortunately the NFL said no, flatly:

On Friday, the NFL indicated that the league had no desire to help the Obama administration sell and implement Obamacare this fall. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy emailed the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein to say the NFL had no plans to help promote Obamacare:

We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about PPACA’s implementation.

It is very disconcerting to many Americans that two years after ramming the PPACA down our throats, we are seeing what Nancy Pelosi inadvertently indicated we would, “what’s in it”! The “what’s in it” is a train wreck, and expensive wreck and come this October Americans are all going to see what it means to them, especially as they file their tax returns in 2014.

The administration knows this all too well and the Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius has already been caught pressuring the very industry she regulates and grants are flowing in many states, including California and its kids. 51TvGSvYo5L._SX260_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_

Lest we forget amidst the several other scandals currently blowing up in the Obama administration’s face (it is rather difficult to keep up), last Friday we learned that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been hitting up health-care industry executives and groups, directly asking them to make donations to the non-profits that are working to enroll uninsured Americans and increase public awareness of ObamaCare’s benefits.

And then there are the librarians:

The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Up to 17,000 U.S. libraries will be part of the effort to get information and crucial computer time to the millions of uninsured Americans who need to get coverage under the law. (Read more here.)

If it is so good for America, why do they have to sell it to America since its already law? The answer is easy, its a lemon and no one wants it. Its just so telling when a book named “ObamaCare Survival Guide“, not a very supportive book, was number one on the best sellers list.

L.A. schools use your tax dollars teaching students to sell ObamaCare at home

By Andrew MalcolmInvestors.com

With great excitement, the Los Angeles Unified School District has designed a nearly $1 million program to train teenagers to promote the glories of ObamaCare to parents, relatives and friends at home.

The state’s health insurance exchange, Covered California, is handing $990,000 to LA schools, along with federal grants totaling 36-million more U.S. taxpayer dollars to districts around the most populous state.

obamakidsThe goal is to train millions of student messengers statewide to sell the idea of government-subsidized health insurance to parents and relatives at home and to get more people enrolled in ObamaCare.

Taxpayer-paid public school staff will also be used to phone students’ homes urging enrollment under Obama’s Affordable Care Act. And they will be used to consume precious class instructional time to teach the students all about the healthcare program that the Democrat Congress did not read before passing in 2010.

The use of California school children to peddle ObamaCare is part of a broad, desperate promotional effort by the Obama administration to combat the controversial healthcare program’s declining support in the public and among Democrats, especially those facing reelection efforts next year.

One of ObamaCare’s key congressional architects, Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, now calls the plan “a huge train wreck.” He decided against seeking reelection next year.

Fox News Poll this week found sizable majorities fear the act’s impact on their family and a record number now want the entire measure repealed. Results showed 39% (a new high) favor total repeal while another 19% want parts killed. Only 19% find the act about right.

A new Gallup Poll reports nearly half of Americans (47%) believe ObamaCare will make the country’s healthcare worse.

Previous columns here have reported the steep climb to near-record levels in the nation’s temp job sector as employers shed full-time workers to avoid the massive fines and new costs of ObamaCare. Additionally, the law’s 30-hour work-week cutoff is apparently driving thousands of businesses to cut employees’ work schedules to 29 or fewer hours.

Los Angeles’ immense indoctrination effort has absolutely nothing to do with what many Americans have long associated with the real job of taxpayer-funded public high schools, attempting to teach subjects such as math, history, trades or even, say, reading at a level above eighth grade.

Officials at Covered California said enforcement of the grants would be strict with monthly, quarterly and annual reports required on something. They added that if unspecified targets measured by unidentified means are not met, then additional reports on something would be required.

A spokeswoman for the LA school district proudly said the student ObamaCare scheme was actually a pilot program to see how well teenagers serve as messengers of government-sponsored information.

The goal, she said, is to determine “whether young people can be trained as messengers to deliver” a broad array of school and government-sponsored messages to family and friends. Now, there’s a student indoctrination idea that sounds like some country other than the United States.

If they prove proficient at influencing their own families to believe material sent home from schools, she said, the teens will be used to deliver numerous other official messages to adults in their home and neighborhoods. (Read more here.)

Obama White House Hosts Sheikh Who Called for Killing American Troops in Iraq

By Andrew C. McCarthy – National Review Online – The Corner

President Obama’s top national security advisers have just hosted Sheikh Abdulla bin Bayyah at the White House. As vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) in 2004, bin Bayyah endorsed a fatwa calling for the killing of American troops and other personnel serving in Iraq.

Bin Bayyah is the principal deputy to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief sharia jurist and the driving force of the IUMS. In addition to being behind the 2004 fatwa, Qaradawi also promotes suicide bombing against Israel.

The IUMS strongly supports the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch, Hamas, the terrorist organization designated as such under American law. Indeed, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh – a close ally of both Qaradawi and Turkey’s Islamic supremacist prime minister (and Obama fave) Recep Tayyip Erdogan – was welcomed into the IUMS as a member in 2004.

As detailed here on other occasions (see, e.g., here), Hamas’s charter explains that the group’s imperative to destroy Israel is an Islamic obligation, and it cites authoritative scripture – frequently repeated by Qaradawi – stating that the world will not end “until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: ‘O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!’”

News of the White House meeting with bin Bayyah was broken last night by Steve Emerson and John Rossomando of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The meeting took place at the Obama administration’s request, according to an account of it posted – along with a photo – on bin Bayyah’s website. Since its original posting, the account has been edited to omit mention of Obama National Security Adviser Tom Donilon’s participation.

This marks a new low for the administration that, in brazen violation of U.S. counterterrorism law, previously invited a member of the Blind Shiekh’s terrorist organization for consultations at the White House.

Notably, bin Bayyah lobbied the administration to “take urgent action” to help the Syrian “rebels” (i.e., the factions opposing the Assad regime, which are dominated by Islamic supremacists and violent jihadists – more accurately described as the Syrian mujahideen than as “rebels”). As Emerson and Rossamondo observe, President Obama has since announced plans to arm the Syrian opposition.

Emerson and Rossamondo’s full account is very much worth reading. So is the take offered by Patrick Poole at PJM. Patrick elaborates on Emerson/Rossamondo’s assertion that this is far from the administration’s first consultation with bin Bayyah.

The enemy is not at the gate. He has long since skipped across the welcome mat.

Kill coal, kill jobs, raise costs, crony capitalism again

Editor’s Note – It is time to be honest – Barack Obama has confirmed that greenhouse gas emissions are more important to him than creating and sustaining jobs in America. Further, it tells us that Obama is comfortable, that in trade, it will mean the destruction of the entire economic engine of America.

Once again, his stance on the Keystone XL pipeline and coal energy production means he has declared war on the working class because energy prices would soar. This would choke small business and job production while simultaneously increasing costs to all citizens, whether employed or not. 

Rick Moran at the American Thinker writes:

Sure. Why not? It’s not his job that’s going to be lost. Not his family that might go hungry. Not his life’s work up in smoke because Obama has an animus toward fossil fiuels.

Daniel Schrag, the Obama climate advisor said yesterday. “Everybody is waiting for action,” he said. “The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.”

There is not one sector of the U.S. government that is not in crisis due to fraud, lies, and collusion and there is not a corner of the globe that is not experiencing much the same. It confounds one that Barack Obama would choose such a low level concern of the public, elevating it to his primary concern in his Georgetown speech given just prior to his long vacation once again in Africa.

Climate change ranks number 21 on the list of the top 21 concerns of the public according to a Pew Poll at a time when the situation he speaks of is simply not true. This cult posing as science has been to be one of the largest frauds yet perpetuated worldwide. The only truth here is that money is to be made which remains at the core of this debate.

Barack Obama is going to once again sidestep the checks and balances of a government divided for just that reason, bypassing controls on his policies. This is the very Congress that in his first two years was controlled by his own party, but he could not get these policies passed despite his early popularity.

President Obama will announce Tuesday he is planning to sidestep Congress to implement a national plan to combat climate change that will include the first-ever federal regulations on carbon dioxide emitted by existing power plants, despite adamant opposition from Republicans and some energy producers. (Read more here from Fox News.)

Unpopular policies trump the success of America. You are headed for failure as his friends enjoy a new round of crony capitalism through loan guaranties akin to the Solyndra debacle – the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over, each time expecting a different outcome. But wait, maybe that is the sole reason – its good to be a friend of this White House after all.

Obama: Keystone XL Should Not Be Approved If It Will Increase Greenhouse Gas Emissions

By Sam Stein – The Huffington Post

President Barack Obama will ask the State Department not to approve the construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline unless it can first determine that it will not lead to a net increase in greenhouse gas emissions, a senior administration official told The Huffington Post.

“Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation’s interest,” the president said in a Tuesday speech on climate change. “And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward.”

The president has avoided weighing in on the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline for several years now, citing an executive order asking the State Department to make a determination on the project’s viability first. Environmentalists have called on him to spike the project entirely because of risks that it will contribute irrevocably to global warming and potentially contaminate drinking water if it leaks. Conservatives and even some labor groups have encouraged Obama to approve of the project because of its potential to create jobs.

The new Obama policy somewhat splits the difference — not killing the project outright, but ensuring that it meets a basic environmental standard.

“As the executive order on Keystone contemplates, the environmental impacts will be important criteria used in the determination of whether the Keystone pipeline application will ultimately be approved at the completion of the State Department decision process,” said the senior administration official. “In today’s speech, the president will make clear that the State Department should approve the pipeline only if it will not lead to a net increase in overall greenhouse gas emissions.”

It’s unclear exactly how much in greenhouse gas emissions will have to be offset in order for the project to get the green light. Questions also remain about whether the emissions that would have to be offset include those resulting from economic activity spurred by the pipeline or just those from the construction of the pipeline itself.

Answers to those questions will ultimately determine whether green groups, and even a coalition of concerned former Obama campaign workers, will applaud Tuesday’s pronouncement or scoff at it. Some 40,000 environmental activists descended on the White House in February of this year to protest the pipeline’s construction.

The pipeline, if approved by State, would extend 1,200 miles from Alberta, Canada, to southeastern Nebraska, carrying diluted tar sands bitumen. The southern segment of the pipeline, which is currently under construction, would carry the crude product to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

“Yes Virginia”, that is a drone over our house at Christmas!

FBI Chief: Surveillance Drones Used in U.S.

By Devlin Barrett – WSJ Washington Wire

Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert Mueller testifies during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee June 13, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington.Mueller

The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledged Wednesday that his agency uses drones to conduct surveillance in the United States, but said it does so rarely.

Asked about drones at a Senate hearing, FBI director Robert Mueller said the agency uses them “in a very, very minimal way, very seldom.”

Federal agencies have been using drones for years to monitor the northern and southern borders of the U.S., and those drones have occasionally been deployed to help domestic law-enforcement agencies like the FBI.

The use of such drones is politically charged and civil-rights advocates say there are no clear privacy rules governing their use.

FBI hostage negotiators used surveillance drones during a standoff earlier this year with an Alabama man who had taken a boy hostage inside a makeshift underground bunker.

Asked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) about what privacy protections are used in deploying drones and storing the images they collect, Mr. Mueller said their use was narrowly focused on specific incidents.

“It’s very seldom used and generally used in a particular incident when you need the capability,’’ said Mr. Mueller, who said he wasn’t sure what becomes of the images recorded by such drones. “It is very narrowly focused on particularized cases and particularized needs.’’

He added: “There are a number of issues related to drones that are going to have to be debated.” One area that needs to be explored, he said, was how long-established guidelines on helicopter surveillance should be adopted or altered to cover unmanned drone surveillance. “It’s worthy of debate and perhaps legislation down the road,’’ said Mr. Mueller.

Mr. Mueller spent Wednesday morning testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee for what is likely to be his last time as FBI director. His term expires in September, and President Barack Obama is expected to nominate former Bush administration official James Comey to succeed him.

TWA 800 Explosion Cause Exposed – Whistleblower Video

Editor’s Note – TWA flight 800 was shot down! So say so many theorists over the years.

Those of us who were in the area when it happened heard every explanation from a Navy missile misfired, to a deliberate Navy missile barrage, to terrorists on Long Island using man-pads, to the official explanation that old style wire insulation broke down and ignited a fuel tank. But way too many witnesses were told to be quiet; believable witnesses who saw the event.

In light of recent revelations exposing the Federal government as hiding way to much from Americans, or eaves-dropping on their activities to outright infringement of our rights, its hard to discount the conspiracy theories as the musings of crack-pots who run on any kernel or granule of fact and extrapolating them out to some weird extreme.

Then come the whistleblowers, so many whistleblowers, and now, 17 years later, insiders are coming out on how TWA 800 went down.

twa

Was it shot down after all? If it was a terror event, why didn’t the government trust Americans to be able to handle the facts. Maybe if we were allowed to know more, our nation would not be so full of low-information voters. We are adults and we can take it! Stop coddling the public!

We might even understand how the rest of the world lives under the shadow of existentialism – living like you could die by violence on a daily basis.

Here is what a few insiders had to say, and soon you can see the documentary that hinges on the whistleblower accounts and eye witnesses:

Stalcup, joined Wednesday by former NTSB investigator Hank Hughes and former TWA investigator Bob Young, said they had no doubt that a missile was responsible for the plane’s demise.

“What they portrayed as the cause of the accident is not true,” said Hughes. “I’ve conducted hundreds of investigations over a long period of time. If it smells like a rat, and looks like a rat, after a while you get the idea it’s a rat.”

The NTSB issued a statement responding to the reinvestigation request. Conspiracy theories surrounding the plane’s demise began circulating within days of its crash off Long Island.

“While the NTSB rarely re-investigates issues that have already been examined, our investigations are never closed and we can review any new information,” the federal agency said.

Back then, few of us believed the official story.Here is snippet of what you will see soon and an article that explains it further:

TWA Flight 800 Not A Gas Tank Explosion, Say Whistleblowers

A new documentary called “TWA FLIGHT 800” features six whistleblowers who claim the 1996 airline crash was not caused by a gas tank explosion as claimed by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

TWA FLIGHT 800 will premiere on the cable network EPIX on July 17, which is the 17th anniversary of the controversial airline crash (video below). The plane mysteriously crashed off the coast of New York, 12 minutes after take-off, killing all 230 people on board.

At the time, former JFK spokesman and ABC News correspondent Pierre Salinger (and other witnesses) claimed to have seen an object possibly hit the plane. Now, the whistleblowers claim they were gagged by the FBI and NTSB from speaking out, reports FoxNews.com.

The whistleblowers are former employees of the NTSB, TWA and the Airline Pilots Association, notes EPIXHD.com.

“This team of investigators who actually handled the wreckage and victims’ bodies, prove that the officially proposed fuel-air explosion did not cause the crash,” say the film’s producers. “They also provide radar and forensic evidence proving that one or more ordinance explosions outside the aircraft caused the crash.”

None of the whistleblowers will say for sure that the plane was shot down.
