Former Florida Rep. and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West just wrote the following on his blog on Wednesday <Yahoo News, link>:

The only plausible explanation for many actions taken by President Obama and his administration is that they are working counter to the security of the United States of America.

Among six example he gives to back up his point is Obama’s decision to release of five Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl in May, providing weapons of support to the Egyptian government led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and negotiating with Hamas.

He also writes at length about Obama’s recent decision to lift a ban on Libyan’s attending U.S. flight schools and studying nuclear science, which had been in place since 1983.

Can anyone explain what the strategy and objective is here in lifting this ban with a nation that is or should be on the terrorist watch list? Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause.

The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals. Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.

What a train wreck, this Obamacare monstrosity…

The number of Obamacare enrollments for top health insurer Aetna is plummeting, according to a report from Investor’s Business Daily.

Aetna’s enrollment reached 720,000 by May 20, after the final end to the the extended open enrollment period. But by the end of June Aetna had less than 600,000 paying customers, IBD reports, and the company expects paying customers to fall to “just over 500,000″ by the end of 2015. That would be a drop of just under 30 percent from the May sign-up numbers — the last time the Obama administration released its official Obamacare enrollment tally. <The Daily Caller, link>

I and all my friends and colleagues are astounded that Ebola patients are being brought from Africa into the United States for treatment. Whoever made the decision to do so should have his or her head examined.

But this morning National Security Adviser Susan Rice assured the nation that there is nothing to worry about:

The second American who contracted Ebola while in Liberia, Nancy Writebol of North Carolina, is expected to arrive in Atlanta today to receive treatment at Emory University Hospital. Rice says there’s a low risk of the deadly virus spreading in America. <WIBC, link>

The risk to Americans is deemed by the Centers for Disease Control to be very low… This is not a disease that can be communicated by sneezing or airborne or food or water.

Wow, I feel so much better now that a high-ranking serial liar within the Obama administration has issued this reassurance, don’t you?

Never mind that Susan Rice also made the following comments about other matters of national security.

On the Obama prisoner swap of the Taliban “dream team” (5 senior military commanders) for Bowe Bergdahl, a known deserter and anti-American man (yes, he wrote to his parents that “The horror that is America is disgusting” <link>) — actual Susan Rice quote on an ABC News appearance:

Rice Bergdhal

Source: an ABC News appearance on 6/1/14 with George Stephanopoulos <link>

Rice’s comment on Bergdahl despite his obvious acts of dishonor while on the field of battle show just how untrustworthy her words are.

And then there is her legendary Benghazi lie:

Susan Rice actual quote (WSJ Blog, link):

The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video.

People of all political stripes condemned this obvious lie, especially when it became clear that she was instructed by the Obama administration to say such lies.

New White House emails made public Tuesday by conservative Judicial Watch further support that the Obama team wanted then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to stress that a video disparaging the Prophet Muhammad was the catalyst for a series of anti-American protests across the Islamic world, including the deadly attacks on the Benghazi mission in September 2012.

In an e-mail with the subject line: “PREP CALL with Susan,” deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes wrote that one of the goals before Rice went on the Sunday news shows after the killing of four Americans  was to “underscore these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.” <The Washington Post, link>

And so when she opens her mouth now about anything, whether important or unimportant, rational listeners can only conclude one thing: that she is lying, and cannot be trusted.

It reminds one of the president, does it not?

 

 

From the Huffington Post:

 WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama made a major political mistake by lying about the details of his health care plan, according to former House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.). <link>
The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled — I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis. But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people.
And don’t forget that Barney Frank has been having second thoughts about more than just Barack Hussein Obama’s lies: he regrets that he supported the Obamacare creation of an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), one the most fascist elements of the Obamacare monstrosity. I wrote about this here and here.

We are on target to open the health insurance marketplace on Oct. 1 where small businesses and ordinary Americans will be able to go to one place to learn about their coverage options and make side-by-side comparisons of each plan’s price and benefits before they make their decision.

Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to president Obama, July 2, 2013, The White House Blog

This post is for Liberals who support the ACA: I’m just checking in with you on how your minds are holding up under the daily assault of the crumbling of lies coming from Barack Obama and his allies regarding the fatally flawed law known as Obamacare, or the “Affordable” Care Act.

A story I saw yesterday prompted my concern for you: it seems that Orwellian Newspeak is again in full swing, this time on a core part of the law, the employer mandate.

Remember this, from a year ago, in 2013?

…the administration on Tuesday abruptly announced a one-year delay, until 2015, in his health care law’s mandate that larger employers provide coverage for their workers or pay penalties.  <New York Times, July 2, 2013, link>

The manchurian gutted a major piece of his own law in this manner because he knew that Democrats running in this year’s midterms would face a firestorm of protest had the law been allowed to do what it was designed to do: that is, seek and destroy employers and jobs for the average American citizen. This firestorm will result when employers try desperately to avoid Obamacare’s financial penalties by firing employees to get below the 50-employee minimum (or reduce certain workers to part-time status, thus depriving them of making a living and forcing them to get a second job).

The decision postpones the effective date beyond next year’s midterm elections.

Right — keep the voters asleep for as long as possible, and once you’ve gotten past the midterm elections -BOOM, smash the faces of employers and average Americans. Nice guy, this Obama. God forbid the voters would be allowed to experience Obamacare in its full glory — oh no, can’t let the truth of it be known all at once.

But now it’s a year later, and the employer mandate, even though delayed, is still out there getting ready to destroy wealth and jobs…

Unless the Obama administration delays them further, the penalties are scheduled to go into effect next year on employers with more than 100 workers. The administration plans to impose penalties on employers with more than 50 full-time workers beginning in 2016.

SO GUESS WHAT: some of the original architects of the law are now saying that the employer mandate was “never really necessary”.

Isn’t that convenient?

This from two days ago:

Four years later and after repeated delays, the so-called employer mandate has become something of an orphan, reviled by the law’s opponents and increasingly seen as unnecessary by many of its backers. Twice in the last two years, the Obama administration has put off the penalties…<LA Times, link>

So the employer mandate is now an “orphan”?

Here comes the Orwellian language, courtesy of Dr. Bob Kocher, “former special assistant to the president for healthcare and economic policy” and a man who “worked extensively on the law in 2009 and 2010″:

The employer mandate is not an essential feature of the Affordable Care Act.

Is that so, Dr. Bob!

But Bob, what about this THIS inconvenient truth:

The penalties on employers that don’t offer coverage are slated to generate more than $100 billion over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. That money, which pays part of the cost of expanding health coverage, would be difficult to replace. <LA Times, link>

Dr. Bob, it would appear that you are a

LIAR

And so much for “deficit neutral”.

Barack Obama and his Orwellian allies would have us believe that the (a) the ACA was deficit neutral in 2009 when it was passed, and (b) can still be deficit neutral even if mr. Obama removes, by fiat (in violation of his Oath of Office), a piece of the law that would have contributed $100 billion to the wealth redistribution of Obama’s socialized medicine.

If you are an Obama supporter, did you believe him then?

Do you believe him now?

And then there is the question of where that $100 billion will come from, I wonder?

The Affordable Care Act—also known as Obamacare—is “not an affordable product” for many people and it does not fix the underlying problems causing high health-care costs, Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark Bertolini told CNBC on Wednesday.

If we’re going to fix health care, we’ve got to get at the delivery of care and the cost of care.  The ACA does none of that.
