Obamacare is a destroyer that knows no bounds and has an insatiable hunger to rip apart the soul of the American middle class.

Staples was recently in the news after mr. Obama chastised them for cutting back on part-time hours in order to avoid the draconian employer mandate.

Turns out they are not the only business cutting back hours to avoid the Obamacare Death Star (emphasis added):

Staples isn’t the only employer to cut hours. Investor’s Business Daily has tallied more than 450 private companies and government agencies that have done the same.

Betsy Webb, a school superintendent in Maine, recently testified before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions that her school system will have to cut substitute teachers’ hours, as it can’t afford to provide them health insurance. The school will also have to require those working two part-time jobs for the district to quit one of them.

As she told the senators, everyone loses.

Other schools have had similar experiences. More than 200 colleges have cut work hours because of the mandate, according to the College Fix, a higher education news source. <Forbes.com, link>

And there are people in this country who still openly support the Affordable Care Act!

I saw the following opening paragraph in the latest news coming out of Venezuela, home to the former Hugo Chavez regime and the present ongoing Socialist regime of his successor, and I didn’t bother to read the rest of the story (because those of us who pay attention to history already know how the story ends):

With long, everyday waits in line to buy milk or toilet paper, Venezuela’s economic crisis is proving ever more painful, as President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist government struggles with the inflation-wracked, collapsing economy. <Yahoo News, link>

Another central government failure in attempting to manage a large economy, and another chapter in the human resistance to learning from past failed experiments.

Chavez Socialism

Will Socialism be tried again in countries around the world?

Yes.

Will the outcome be any better than what the poor citizens of Venezuela are being forced to live through?

No.

Will American Liberals and “Progressives” learn anything from this latest tragic example of central planning?

Rudy Giuliani suggested last week that Barack Obama does not love America, igniting a fierce backlash against him (Giuliani). The backlash stems, I believe, from the cognitive dissonance of the idea that a president of the United States could in fact be opposed to the country he was elected to lead: this is too much for many people to even contemplate, and so they must squash the mere utterance of the possibility that mr. Obama in fact is more ashamed of America — more against it — than he is proud of it and for it.

But as hard as it may be for many people to believe, mr. Obama has been in office for many years now — six long years, in fact — and his actions speak more loudly than any theories of what thoughts rattle around in his mind; this is not 2007, when he was a candidate with a shocking lack of credentials to even consider running for president, but is 2015, in his second term.

The evidence is all around us, and there is so much of it, that a pattern emerges, and this pattern supports Mr. Giuliani’s comments.

And so let’s begin, one ugly fact and event at a time.

#1: The Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange for the “Taliban Dream Team” of terrorists

Barack Obama authorized the release (and likely return to the battlefield against us) of five senior Taliban military commanders in exchange for the return of a U.S. serviceman who had deserted his post after having written anti-American messages to his parents.

Taliban commanders released by Barack Obama

When one considers the rank and terror threat of these five men, one would imagine that the USA would have negotiated a very high value exchange.

However, Mr. Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post — up and left it, in the middle of a war — and reportedly sought refuge with the enemy.

BergdahlHow did Mr. Bergdahl feel about America? We do not have to guess, as he wrote some hate-filled emails to his parents just prior to leaving his post, and those emails included these gems:

“I am ashamed to be an american.”

“The horror that is america is disgusting”

His conduct alienated his fellow soldiers, many of whom spoke up when news of the prisoner exchange emerged.

This from Sergeant Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon:

Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war, and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.

Strong words.

And since then, the wheels of military justice have been turning.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by enemy forces in Afghanistan for five years, will likely be charged with desertion, senior defense officials tell NBC News. <NBC News, link>

On what basis would a president release the “Taliban Dream Team” for a man like Bowe Bergdahl?

Perhaps a president who also feels “ashamed” of America, and that America is “disgusting”?

Let me ask it a different way: if you were a terrorist leader in Afghanistan or Pakistan and heard that president Obama was willing to release your top five senior military commanders in exchange for an American who deserted his post while hating the United States, what would you conclude about Barack Obama?

Coming up next….

Giuliani For President

Rudolph Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City and a man whose restoration of that city from the wreckage of David Dinkins to a shining city on a hill — a feat most thought impossible — will be celebrated and revered for hundreds and even thousands of years to come, has spoken the Truth about Barack Hussein Obama.

I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you and he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.

Such plain-spoken truth has most certainly provoked our thin-skinned president and his servile enablers, but like the voice of an adult among so many gutless and infantile politicians in both political parties, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani is making no apologies, and in fact is doubling down. Rudy Giuliani is not running for President in 2016, but if he were, I would consider joining his campaign.

Truth Teller

Truth Teller

Here are excerpts of his follow-up on Fox News, under intense questioning by Megyn Kelly, a Fox News host (from The Kelly File, link): KELLY: The president’s team also getting involved today. The Deputy White House Press Secretary Eric Schultz taking a shot at the mayor over his failed run for president saying, quote, “Mr. Giuliani test drove this line of attack during his fleeting 2007 run for the presidency. I agree with him on one thing, it was a horrible thing to say.” Here now to respond, former New York City mayor and former Republican presidential candidate, Rudy Giuliani. Mr. Mayor, do you want to apologize for your comments?

RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: Not at all. I want to repeat it. The reality is I — from all that I can see of this president, all that I’ve heard of him, he apologizes for America, he criticizes America. He talks about the crusades and how the Christians were barbarians, leaves out the second half of the sentence that the Muslims were barbarians also. He sees Christians slaughtered and doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference although he holds a press conference for the situation in Ferguson. He sees Jews being killed for anti-Semitic reasons. He doesn’t stand up and hold a press conference. This is an American president I’ve never seen before.

…. KELLY: A lot — a lot of Liberals don’t believe in American exceptionalism, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love America.

GIULIANI: Well, that I don’t feel it. I don’t feel it. I don’t feel this love of America. I think this man was — when I talked about his background, I’m talking about a man who grew up under the influence of Frank Marshall Davis who was a member of the communist party who he refers to over and over in his book, who was a tremendous critic of the United States.

This is a man who worked on Saul Alinsky who was a tremendous critic of the United States. I believe his initial approach is to criticize this country and then afterwards to say a few nice things about us.

KELLY: But when you say he wasn’t raised to love America, I mean, he was raised in part by his grandparents, his – his grandfather served in World War II, his grandmother worked in ammunitions plant to help the nation during World War II. I mean, to suggest he was raised by people who don’t love America, who don’t — didn’t help him learn to love America.

GIULIANI: Well, his — his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis who was a communist who the president says.

KELLY: He fought in — he fought in World War II!

GIULIANI: OK. You can fight in World War II and then you introduce someone to a communist and the young boy gets.

KELLY: It’s a political world view. It’s not a hatred for the country.

GIULIANI: Communism wasn’t a hatred for America?

KELLY: I’m talking about this particular — his grandfather, if he had a leftist view of how politics in the United States should run, does that mean he doesn’t love America? Doesn’t mean.

GIULIANI: Well, OK. Well, Kelly, how about being in a church of 17 years where the minister of the church says, “It’s not God loves America but God damn America.” Now, if you were in that church, wouldn’t you quit that church?

KELLY: Let me ask you this.

GIULIANI: Wouldn’t — I’m going to ask you that? Would you quit that church?

KELLY: Well, listen. That is not — it’s not about me. But it’s not — it’s not about me. But I want to ask you this because.

GIULIANI: But I know you would quit that church. And the reason you would is because you were brought up about how exceptional this country is, how wonderful this country is. I am saying, and I may be wrong, it’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it.

KELLY: Yes.

GIULIANI: I do not detect in this man the same rhetoric and the same language, the same love of America that I detected in other American presidents including Democrats and I think it guides a lot of the things that he says and a lot of the things he does.

KELLY: Let me ask you this, so I mean, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is — she’s all upset about what she said.

GIULIANI: Well, she’s always all upset.

KELLY: — just for the record. She — she didn’t condemn Barack Obama when he called George W. Bush unpatriotic. She had no problem with that and she had said a lot of incendiary things.

GIULIANI: I did not — did not call him unpatriotic.

KELLY: I know. But she — she suggested you did. And she had an — an issue with that.

GIULIANI: I did not.

KELLY: She — Barack Obama actually did call George W. Bush unpatriotic. And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had no problem with that. what I want to ask you thought because I have you here instead of her.

GIULIANI: OK.

KELLY: All right, is you went on Hannity’s show back in 2007 when you were running and this back when General Petraeus was — was testifying before Congress on the Iraq war and the surge and defending it. And MoveOn.Org had taken out an ad of the New York Times calling him “General Betray Us.”

GIULIANI: Right.

KELLY: And you were upset about that. You had the following exchange. I want to ask you whether it still stands. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, “HANNITY & COLMES,” SEPT. 13, 2007) HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE: The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief. GIULIANI: It comes on the same day as the MoveOn.Org ad in the New York Times accusing General Petraeus of being a traitor, this is a despicable attack. Hillary Clinton should disown and condemn MoveOn.Org. SEAN HANNITY, Co-HOST: You actually said these times call for statesmanship, not politicians spewing political venom. GIULIANI: Yeah, you know, I mean, what — what kind of civility is that? (END VIDEO CLIP) KELLY: And so I ask you the same thing, what kind of civility is that?

GIULIANI: I think that’s perfectly civil. I think that is a perfectly reasonable opinion. But the president and his comments if we look at all his rhetoric has not displayed the kind of love of America, the kind of love of American exceptionalism that other American presidents have displayed. That he has gone abroad (ph) and criticized us over and over again, apologized for us. Every time he does it, it embarrasses me.

I was in Europe a lot this summer and this fall. And all I heard about is the bigoted American Police Departments and I never heard the president of the United States defend the policemen of America, 800,000 of which put their lives on the line for us.

KELLY: What about — what about the critics who say you’ve hurt the GOP? Because now you’ve got some people coming out saying these Republicans, this is how they are. I mean, that’s what Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, she wants Scott Walker to disavow your comments. She’s — she’s the head of the DNC. But — but do you think you hurt the Republican brand?

GIULIANI: I — I — I do not think I did. And last time all the candidates for president wanted me removed from office is when I fought the RICO case against teamsters union, the only one didn’t reach (ph) was George Bush.

KELLY: Accusing them of racketeering.

GIULIANI; And — and that case was just settled successfully after 30 years of changing the teamsters union (ph). I’m right about this. I have no doubt about it. I do not withdraw my words. If the president goes and makes a speech and talks about what a great country this is, if the president could complete the following sentence, “During the crusades the Christians were barbarians and so were the Muslims.” if the president could say, “Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is our enemy,” I will applaud the president.

But until he does that, I will have doubts about his emotions, his feelings, his attitudes and the way in which he developed. We haven’t even mentioned some of the other communists and leftists who educated him as a young man. But all we need is Reverend Wright. Seventeen years in that church and that man condemned America over and over and over again, and he remained a member of that church.

KELLY: the president suggested he wasn’t there –

GIULIANI: I would have –

KELLY: — for those sermons.

GIULIANI: The other parishioners didn’t tell him about it? I would have walked out of that church in two darn seconds because I love my country.

KELLY: Mr. Mayor, thanks for being here.

GIULIANI: Thank you.

KELLY: All the best, sir.

On Friday, the government scam known as healthcare.gov had another massive failure:

The Obamacare website had another major stumble on Friday when the White House revealed it sent hundreds of thousands of customers bad tax information. <Yahoo Finance, link>

This should surprise no one, because Barack Obama and his corrupt team have lied repeatedly about so-called “fixes” to the broken system known as Obamacare.

Way back in November 2013, an Obama minion admitted a rather shocking truth to a Congressional Committee:

A crucial system for making payments to insurers from people who enroll in that federal Obamacare marketplace has yet to be built, a senior government IT official admitted Tuesday.

The official, Henry Chao, visibly stunned Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) when he said under questioning before a House subcommittee that a significant fraction of HealthCare.gov—30 to 40 percent of it—has yet to be constructed.

“We still need to build the payments system to make the payments [to insurance companies] in January,” testified Chao, deputy chief information officer of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that operates HealthCare.gov. <source>

NEWS FLASH: it still isn’t built.

From Politico.com a few days ago:

The “back end” of the Obamacare website still isn’t properly wired to the health insurance companies… <Politico.com, link>

But wait, the Obama administration said it would be fixed by “mid-March” 2014, and then on 4/25/14 revised the date of the “fix” again:

The Obama administration posted a document earlier [in April 2014] indicating that insurers will continue to be paid through an “interim” accounting process — pretty much a spreadsheet and some informed estimates — until at least September. When the permanent system eventually goes live, it could lead to a massive correction that either exposes taxpayers to more costs or puts pressure on insurance companies to raise prices. <Politico.com, source>

September 2014? Was it fixed?

From two days ago, 2/20/15:

Subsidy payments aren’t automated, so the insurers get payments based on estimates. …Instead of a swift process, health plans use clunky workarounds and manual spreadsheets

Your government at work, under the leadership of an America-hating bureaucrat.

So we have a government-run system with over 11 million people “enrolled” (under threat of IRS penalties if they didn’t enroll) for which no back end yet exists.

Barack Hussein Obama is a con artist — the greatest who ever lived, in fact — and in plain sight had his team labor to fix the front end of Obamacare while ignoring the back end, in the hope that enough people would take their eyes off of the flimflam that is this law.

The article quoted an “insurance industry official”, who had this to say:

You’re not going to find a lot of customer-facing issues. It’s more like you lift up the hood, and that’s where the problems are.

Right, just take a look “under the hood” to see the truth, again: the law must be repealed as soon as possible.

obamacare under the hood

Journeying inside the Liberal mind is really quite something.

As we all know, in 2010, Democrats and Barack Obama forced through the Affordable Care Act, a corrupt and destructive law built on a host of extraordinary lies.

Not one Republican voted in favor of the law, a fact that will stand up more beautifully each year.

One of the principal scams inherent in the fraud known as Obamacare is that it would not cost the government much money — less than $1 trillion, lied Barack Obama — which in the midst of the 2008 global financial crisis was an important lie for Obama and Democrats to tell.

This lie was unmasked almost immediately, but not enough people cared. Remember this from 2012?

When President Obama was selling his health care legislation to Congress, he declared that “the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.” But with the law’s major provisions set to kick in next year, a new analysis by the Congressional Budget Office projects that the law will cost double that, or $1.8 trillion.

What accounts for the dramatic difference? It’s true that at the time of passage, the CBO said the gross cost of the law’s provisions to expand insurance coverage would be $940 billion over a decade. But as many critics of the health care law pointed out at the time, this number was deceptive because it estimated spending from 2010 through 2019 even though the program’s major spending provisions weren’t scheduled to go into effect until 2014. Effectively, the original estimate measured the cost of six years of Obamacare instead of 10. <Washington Examiner, link>

Obamacare shit burger

As we can recall, the true cost of the monstrosity known as Obamacare was masked in several ways, including outright fraud (the 6-year / 10-year flimflam mentioned above), but also via the expected “income” the law would produce by various penalties and fees that would smack Americans in the face as the law got implemented.

But now that a particular form of those draconian consequences is about to be felt (penalties for those who did not sign up for health insurance), leading Democrats are calling for relief…

The three are Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.

The lawmakers say they are concerned that many of their constituents will find out about the penalties after it’s already too late for them to sign up for coverage, since open enrollment ended Sunday.

That means they could wind up uninsured for another year, only to owe substantially higher fines in 2016. The fines are collected through the income tax system.

“For the many families who may now be about to pay a penalty, there should be an opportunity to avoid both further penalties and to obtain affordable health insurance,” said Doggett. <Yahoo News, link>

I love the phrase “…many of their constituents will find out about the penalties…”

Since when do Democrats care about their constituents? Certainly they did not in 2010: the very essence of Obamacare is to shit in the face of constituents, because Americans NEVER WANTED THIS LAW.

The only question worth asking and answering is when Americans will demand that the law be repealed and replaced with something that is not diabolical and against

Since the day he left office, Bill Clinton has been working overtime on boosting his “Legacy”, and with good reason — he needs to.  Despite great promise as a transformational politician and leader, he chose instead to use the White House as a pit of corruption, lawlessness, and personal aggrandizement while simultaneously weakening American power on a global scale and failing to hold Al Qaeda accountable as it struck our interests with impunity around the world, ultimately culminating in the September 11 attacks.

Clinton playing saxophone

Now comes the absurd presidential candidacy of his faux wife, Hillary Clinton, and the Clinton Sexcapades are back in the news.

Except in an a way that’s even bigger than Lewinsky…

Just a few weeks ago, reports broke that Bill Clinton had flown at least 11 times on “The Lolita Express” — a private plane owned by the mysterious financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. According to Virginia Roberts, who claims to have been one of Epstein’s many teenaged sex slaves, Clinton also visited Epstein’s private Caribbean retreat, known as “Orgy Island.”

Clinton also spent years traveling and partying with Ron Burkle, a billionaire bachelor with a penchant for very young girls. Clinton spent so much time on Burkle’s private plane that it came to be known in Burkle’s circle as “Air F—k One.” <New York Post, link>

How presidential — “ORGY ISLAND”, and “Air Fuck One”.

Bill Clinton.

Oh, and the teenage sex slave had this to say:

I remember asking Jeffrey, ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?’ And [Jeffrey] laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes me a favor.’ 

How bad, reportedly, is Mr. Epstein, Bill’s friend?

In 2005, Palm Beach police responded to a complaint filed by a woman who claimed her 14-year-old daughter was lured to Epstein’s mansion. There, the girl was forced to undress and massage Epstein and was paid $300.

In all, it’s believed Epstein had 40 victims in Palm Beach alone. The Daily Beast reported that some of Epstein’s victims claimed he imported girls from Europe and South America, and that three were 12 years old. They were a treat to himself for his birthday. <

Bill Clinton was with Epstein on his “Lolita Express” at least 11 times…

And so we Americans are facing the prospect of potentially having the Clintons back in the White House after having had our way of government and life beaten down by a man who has done more damage to the United States than any foreign nation or dictator ever has or ever could.

And the Republican answer to this suicidal insanity is Jeb Bush?

I am officially taking suggestions on where in the world we can run to as our nation crumbles into dust.
