Certain news stories are guaranteed to appear in the Liberal mainstream media. One of those is the fiction that “…deficits have gone down during Obama’s tenure…”.

National Debt under Obama

 

Never mind that the national debt has increased from $10 trillion when George Bush left office to over $19.2 trillion right now — we are still subjected to this kind of blatant propaganda / Lies (emphasis added):

But Americans just don’t get his economic achievements, he [Obama] insisted to the New York Times Magazine last month.

“If you ask the average person on the streets, ‘Have deficits gone down or up under Obama?’ Probably 70% would say they’ve gone up,” Obama said “with some justifiable exasperation,” according to the magazine, because the deficit has declined during his presidency. <Los Angeles Times, link>

The deficit has declined? Obama wants credit for reducing the deficit?

I don’t see a year of decline in the above chart, do you?

Of course not, and Americans know this even in a general sense:

Polls show that a large majority of Americans believe the opposite to be true, setting up a challenge for the White House truth-squadding campaign.

Ha ha, “setting up a challenge for the White house….” What challenge is that, convincing people that Up is really Down?

Not only have we had huge deficits in each year, the total debt at this point is bigger than the entire U.S. economy.

For shame.

If you are a government fascist seeking to nationalize an entire industry that 86% of the population is happy with just the way it is, you have to LIE, and LIE BIG, and hope enough Americans will believe your lies.

If you are a Liberal who naively believed Barack Obama’s lies about health care, see if you can get through this video without realizing what a fool he made of you.

A majority of Americans in 2009 knew that Barack Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” was a sham and did not want it to become law.

Proof positive of this, in addition to polling at the time, was that the “Ted Kennedy Seat” in the Senate went to a Republican candidate from nowhere (Scott Brown). According to exit polls, this special election in Liberal Massachusetts turned out to be a referendum on Obamacare.

Famously, Barack Obama pushed forward on his vicious power grab and spun many more lies in support of getting it through a reluctant Congress, then controlled by Democrats in BOTH houses.

These lies were and still are very costly, but many Liberals to this day believe the lies (shocking as it it to acknowledge this).

But today we have a new entry in the bright sunshine of the truth courtesy of Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber, one of the original architects of Obamacare (The Hill.com, link).

Are you ready for your medicine, Liberals?

Behold what the rest of us have known all along about the people behind the Obamacare charade and have been screaming as loudly as we can:

Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.

If CBO scored the [individual] mandate as taxes, the bill dies.

If you had a law that made it explicit that healthy people are going to pay in and sick people are going to get subsidies, it would not have passed.

It is a kind of ecstasy when a fascist admits to his schemes to enslave a nation — so rare, and so sublime.

I say this because political debate is usually a dead-end. I have many friends and family members with whom I’ve tried to make my case, but no progress can ever be made, it seems. The strength of my arguments gives me the winning hand — after all, I’ve got several thousand years of failed collectivist policies to rely on — but they will not yield, so committed are they to their emotion instead of their reason.

So when a member of their own camp admits the truth about various diabolical actions, it is an elixir, because how can Liberals ignore one of their own, who was on the inside?

Let’s end this post with Barack Obama’s commitment to transparency, in his very own words (from WhiteHouse.gov):

My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

Barack Obama and his regime have allowed a virulent fast-killing disease for which there is no cure to take root inside the United States.

Ebola has been in Texas, Ohio, and now it is in New York City.

But note the Orwellian manipulation in the reporting of this horrible news:

NEW YORK (AP) — A doctor who became New York City’s first Ebola patient was praised for getting treatment immediately upon showing symptoms, and health officials stressed that the nation’s most populous city need not fear his wide-ranging travel in the days before his illness began. <Associated Press / Yahoo News, link>

Amazing isn’t it, how fast the writer of this news story shifts into propaganda by jumping into a positive message about the patient being “praised” and how health officials are saying that people “should not worry”.

But should we worry?

Read this next part:

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged residents not to be alarmed by the doctor’s diagnosis Thursday, even as they described him riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling since returning to New York from Guinea a week ago. De Blasio said all city officials followed “clear and strong” protocols in their handling and treatment of him.

Well now, I feel so much safer that De Blasio is telling us not to worry, don’t you?

Ebola passing through the subway system, a taxi, and a bowling alley.

I don’t see any possibility of an outbreak, do you?

The real question on Ebola is whether we as citizens are going to swallow these false assurances or not.

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?

Orwellian Obama has been riding Obamacare enrollee numbers like a true Soviet propaganda stallion, with Liberal commentators and pundits cheering him on (how embarrassing for them).

As he gallops around he proclaims that “we won” when it comes to forcing Obamacare down the throats of the American citizens who don’t want it, one wonders who “we” is.

Anyway, let’s have a dose of reality this morning:

Over half of the 221,604 Georgia Obamacare “enrollees” the Obama administration claims as enrollments have not paid for their plans, thereby leaving them still uninsured.

Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens says only 107,581 Georgians have paid for coverage. <source>

What we have in Georgia, and the rest of the nation, is an insurance death spiral in the making. This occurs when the composition of the insured population is such that too many sick people need care for existing PAID premiums to support the health insurance reimbursements, leading insurance companies to raise premiums to offset the losses, leading more people to drop out of the pool (too expensive), leading to worse losses for insurance companies, leading to even HIGHER premiums, and so on and so on until bankruptcy and total loss of health insurance for the entire population.

Nothing — NOTHING — about this probability has diminished in the last six months.

All of the alleged signups on exchanges are a complete sham in one way or another:

  1. Many haven’t paid the premiums, meaning they aren’t real signups;
  2. All enrollees have volunteered personal data in a site with no security on the backend: the state their health and body parts are naked to the world;
  3. The back end on the exchanges doesn’t exist…Insurance companies have no electronic way of getting paid.
  4. More Americans have lost insurance because of Obamacare than have gained insurance because of Obamacare

This last point is right out of George Orwell’s 1984 (or Chavez’s Venezuela): the central power touts its “success helping the people” while an offsetting amount of people are crushed along the way, and the subjects of the regime are fed lie after lie in order to hide the destruction readily apparent all around them.

Hudgens also said that insurance department estimates that 400,000 Georgians may lose their current health insurance coverage because of Obamacare.

So 400,000 Georgians lost their health insurance in order to facilitate 221,604 Georgians in getting health insurance? Does this sound like a winning election strategy for Barack Obama back in 2009 – 2012? Of course not — no politician would get a single vote running on such a promise.

Which is why he lied, and lied, and lied, and is still lying.

As for the exchange and its famous no-back-end, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain, Barack Hussein Obama, the Great Soviet Oz:

Even as the Obama administration struggles to deal with the approaching end of open enrollment for health care exchanges, one critical part of the website has yet to be fixed. The back end of the website is the two-way connection between the government and insurance companies aimed at telling each other who signed up for what.

Said Robert Laszewski of Health Policy and Strategy Associates (source):

Insurance executives just see this as a major nightmare. I mean, when are we finally going to be able to reconcile all the data, to know who is really covered, who is really paid, and what the insurance companies should be paid for?

And you thought Obamacare was “working”?

It is a complete and total charade run by hard-core Marxists telling lies every single minute of every single day.

Will Americans keep believing the lies until it’s too late to fix this?

It is being reported that the CIA used the novel Dr Zhivago as anti-Soviet propaganda during the Cold War because it was written by a Russian novelist and showcased the difference between individuality/freedom and state control/repression/fascism.

Readers of history will recall that the Russian revolution of 1917 (in which the feudal society of Czars and subjects was overthrown) gave way to an even more stifling Communism and the torture and death of tens of millions of Russians. This turn of events led the George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm, in which the new bosses were the same as the old bosses, as the song “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who also recounts.

“We feel that Dr Zhivago is an excellent springboard for conversations with Soviets on the general theme of ‘Communism versus Freedom of Expression,'” runs a 1959 memo. “Travellers should be prepared to discuss with their Soviet contacts not only the basic theme of the book itself – a cry for the freedom and dignity of the individual – but also the plight of the individual in the communist society.” <source>

The irony here is that this message of freedom and dignity for the individual in the face of a central power hell-bent on controlling the lives of its subjects is sorely needed right here at home, in the United States of America under the regime of Barack Hussein Obama.

Mr. Obama is not only a fan of central power through stifling and crushing bureaucracy under the control of a small group of thugs, he is an implementer of policies that create this kind of life in America, a once proud and free nation now in the grip of a Socialist demagogue.

Perhaps the CIA should send him a copy of the book.

Doctor Zhivago? Animal Farm? The Communist Manifesto? Rules for Radicals?
