U.S. GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN 2013: DEMOCRAT HARRY REID REFUSES REPUBLICAN COMMONSENSE COMPROMISE -- GIVES THE FINGER TO AMERICAN CITIZENS

United States Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Gives the Finger to the American Public …

harry-reid-finger

Only one man to blame …

Progressive democrat socialist and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) refuses to delay  “individual mandate” for one year or make it voluntary – after President Barack Obama granted a similar exemption for American industry and a host of special interests like the unions.

Additionally, Harry Reid refused the “Continuing Resolution” that would have demanded that Congress participate in the very same manner as all American citizens – without subsidies unless they were entitled to them by virtue of their income.

The continuing resolution that Reid refused to consider also funded the majority of the government while holding the progressive socialist democrats responsible for an unworkable piece of legislation that is already experiencing major implementation problems. The House of Representatives has also passed a number of smaller Continuing Resolutions to insure that certain parts of the government will remain functioning and that the military and senior citizens will be paid as usual.

This is nothing more than a short-term stunt by the progressive socialist democrats as they know that the debate over the debt ceiling involving the full faith and credit of the United States is on the short-term horizon.

Not only is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act a lie because it provides no real patient protections and is not always affordable, it is basically unconstitutional. The President of the United States has illegally and seriously compromised the constitution by usurping Congressional power as the sole lawmaking body by modifying portions of the Act.

If anything the progressive socialist democrats should be charged with a crime for violating the Truth in Advertising Act.

All of the legislators had plenty of time to negotiate a settlement -- but they shirked their duties and engaged in brinksmanship for political purposes.

Progressive Socialist Democrats in the People's Republic of Santa Monica want to use an aircraft accident to shut down the Santa Moncia Airport

Just like other progressive socialist democrats elsewhere in the nation, the progressives in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica want to use the latest fatal accident at Santa Monica Airport to shut down the airport or curtail flight operations at this historically important airport that serves as an emergency gateway into West Los Angeles and Santa Monica.

Mostly driven by yuppies and aging hippies who live nearby, complaints of noise and pollution have been a constant. Especially since the surrounding area has undergone gentrification. When I was growing up on Clover Avenue next to Clover Field, as the airport was then known, it was a place of wonder and delight. Of course, it was home to a portion of Douglas Aircraft and Bill Lear and Donald Douglas, Jr. roamed the grounds. People respected the airport for what it was and accepted the fact that there was bound to be aircraft-related accidents from time-to-time. One, when I was walking home from grammar school, the same one attended by Beau Bridges who lived nearby, and had a plane make an emergency landing in a tulip field next to me.

Unfortunately, the nature and character of the airport changed as the progressives attempted to cut back the length of the runway or shut down the FAA control tower. Night flight hours were restricted, strict noise abatement procedures were placed into effect, many antique aircraft and old war-birds were forced to seek accommodations elsewhere – and, worst of all, non-aircraft tenants took hold in the park – architects, artists and artisans were allowed to rent space. It seemed that the People’s Republic of Santa Monica wanted to pursue progressive politics – the same type of politics that curtailed light industry and manufacturing in favor of restaurants, yoghurt, and antique stores. What was the home of Himmel Steel Products, where I learned to weld and bend metal on Main Street became an antique shop. The wood-burning barbeque joint nearby was told to take their pollution elsewhere.

And, now the recent airport fatality is being used as an excuse to revisit the airport issue once again …

Bear in mind, this was not a crash landing. This was an accident, possibly caused by a blown tire that caused the aircraft to veer off the runway and strike a nearby hangar where it exploded. We will not know part of the story until the NTSB team removes the hangar and support beams off the aircraft fuselage and removes the bodies. Then their will be the usual thorough NTSB investigation.

Santa Monica Airport crash sparks safety debate

Douglas Aircraft Co. built its famous DC-3s there, and in 1924 it was the jumping off point for U.S. Army pilots who were the first to circumnavigate the globe by air. The first woman to fly the U.S. Mail began her milestone flight at Santa Monica in 1938.

But the oldest operating airport in Los Angeles County has become the most embattled general aviation facility in the nation as housing tracts, started during the Douglas years, moved right up to its boundaries.

Concerned about noise, pollution and safety, those well-heeled Westside communities have been pushing city officials for years to either close the airport or slash its flight operations -- demands that intensified after a private jet slammed into a hangar Sunday in a crash believed to have killed at least two people.

The fiery crash, which occurred as the flight from Idaho was landing, is believed to be the first fatal accident involving a jet in the airport’s history. The impact and fire collapsed the hangar’s steel roof onto part of the aircraft as well as on planes stored inside.

Some community activists are pushing to turn the 227-acre airfield into a park. They claim that the federal requirements and leases to operate a large portion of the property as an airport, including a section of runway, end in 2015.

Only in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica can you have an Airport Commissioner calling for a reduction in airport traffic …

“We hope it’s a wake-up call,” David Goddard, chairman of the Santa Monica Airport Commission, said of Sunday’s crash. “Now we hope the City Council will take the next step” and reduce flights.

Protecting the airport …

But the Federal Aviation Administration asserts that Santa Monica must operate the airport in perpetuity under a 1948 transfer agreement reached when the facility was returned to the city after World War II. Agency officials have vowed to protect the interests of pilots and aviation-related businesses at the airport.

The fate of the airport has been debated for decades. When jets began operating at Santa Monica in the 1960s, the city imposed restrictions and, at one point, a total jet ban, which aviation advocates successfully challenged in court during the 1970s.

Robert Chandler, a veteran Santa Monica pilot who lost a vintage 1953 Cessna in the crash and fire Sunday, said the airport has a good safety record and is a vital part of the region’s transportation system. “To close it would be the equivalent to closing 10 miles of the Santa Monica Freeway,” Chandler said. “It’s disingenuous to move next to an airport and then complain about it.”

But Sunday’s accident has emboldened those who live near the airport. In the 12 years since Pete Thorson moved into his house, he said the jets have gotten bigger and faster, posing a safety risk. The only things separating Thorson’s home from the crash site are a 7-foot wall and about 50 feet of space.

The last fatality related to an airport flight was in 2010. A pilot was killed when his plane crashed on takeoff on the Penmar Golf Course in Venice. Residents said the incident highlights the perils of having an airport so close to homes. Then-Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, whose district bordered Santa Monica Airport, visited the crash site and called for the closure of the airport. His successor, Mike Bonin, on Monday renewed that demand.

“I have long thought that the airport should be shut down, and I feel the same way today,” Bonin said. “The airport is a proven danger to nearby residents, both from the risk of crashes and from growing evidence of pollution and emissions from jet fuel. Sadly, this is déjà vu all over again.”

I am not exactly unbiased in the issue …

I grew up overlooking the airport’s final approach, watched the planes land, and monitoring its tower frequencies. I washed planes in return for rides around the pattern. Even youngsters my age, between eight and twelve years old were welcome on the airport property, taught how to be safe around aircraft, and guided by any number of people who shared their love of flying. I learned to fly at this airport. And, on it’s Fiftieth birthday, I was pleased to add my name to the list of well-wishers. When the signature panels were passed out, I told them if I couldn’t be first signature on the page, I demanded to be the last.

Bottom line …

This is no different from any number of fatal car crashes or home fires that have occurred nearby. Accidents will happen and are a part of life. To turn this historic airport into just another park – or even worse, allow developers to build luxury homes on the site – would be a tragedy.

Global Warming: Latest United Nations IPCC report laughably flawed -- Costliest Joke in History!

Leaders of the pack …

The Climate Devil Personified

ip ag
Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, Chairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States who is still pissed that he was not declared the President by the Supreme Court

How can a “consensus” of brilliant climate researchers ignore their deeply flawed models that failed to predict or even acknowledge the last decade of global cooling – and then tell us that they have increased their confidence estimate of man-made global warming to near certainty?

The big lie …

IPCC Climate Change Report Expresses Extreme Confidence In Human Cause Of Global Warming

Scientists now believe it's "extremely likely" that human activity is the dominant cause of global warming, a long-term trend that is clear despite a recent plateau in the temperatures, an international climate panel said Friday.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change used its strongest language yet in a report on the causes of climate change, prompting calls for global action to control emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

In its previous assessment, in 2007, the U.N.-sponsored panel said it was "very likely" that global warming was due to human activity, particularly the CO2 emissions resulting from the burning of coal, oil and gas.

The change means that scientists have moved from being 90 percent sure to 95 percent — about the same degree of certainty they have that smoking kills.

"At 90 percent it means there is a 10 percent probability that it's not entirely correct," said Chris Field, Carnegie Institution scientist who is a leader in the IPCC but wasn't involved in the report released Friday. "And now that's 5 percent. So it's a doubling of our confidence. That's actually a consequential change in our level of understanding."  <Source>

Where does it say that the global warming phenomena is ONLY a hypothesis, existing only in computerized projections that have not been observationally verified?

When in doubt, shout like hell!

It is a “fact” that man, at his present stage of development cannot alter the energy output of the Sun, cannot change the Earth’s orbital position in relationship to the Sun, cannot alter the Earth’s rotational dynamics, contain the gaseous output of volcanoes, control landmass movements on a tectonic scale, change the dynamics of deep ocean currents, or alter the greatest greenhouse gas, atmospheric water vapor.

It is a “fact” that much of the United Nations’ IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is dominated by politics and the need to create a scientific justification for self-serving public policies that are aligned with the tenets of international socialism, including, but not limited to, population control, wealth re-distribution, perpetual political control mechanisms, and the basis on a one-world government.

It is a “fact” that the dire consequences predicted or projected for our planet arise only in the silicon-based memories of computer models. Models that are widely acknowledged to be based on limited and incomplete assumptions about our physical environment, highly suspect and statistically manipulated input data, and that produce output that does not agree with physical observations over the past ten to fifteen years. Much of the acknowledgement of the cooling trend has been downplayed in the IPCC report as being a pause or by being dereferenced by cherry-picking time frames and graphic scale values. It appears to be the latest fashion by IPCC scientists to claim that the heat that would have created obvious global warming, is somehow hiding in the deep ocean waters. Prima facie evidence that the computer models are deeply flawed and incomplete or unrealistic models of the physical environment.

It is a “fact” that there is an inherent institutional bias in climate research that is producing a mass of “pro global warming” and alarmist literature. This is a natural consequence of scientists and institutions being able to receive funding for projects that confirm or extend “conventional wisdom” than presenting a contrarian view or pointing out flaws in the research work of others. This also extends to the ability for scientific work to be published in so-called “peer-reviewed” journals. With few left-biased mainstream media sources failing to point out that peer-review is a publishing process to improve publication clarity and to eliminate obvious mistakes prior to publication. They do not tell the public that the reviewers do not always have access to the underlying datasets, the computer programs, and all of the output of computer runs – as well as not investigating the claims of the author or confirming their work. In fact, as far as the climate sciences go, peer-reviewed literature has become suspect as in no other field.

It is also a “fact” that some world-renown and well-credentialed scientists, working for prestigious institutions have become climate activists and appear willing to do or say anything to protect their reputations, incomes, and the continued funding of their work. And, as we have seen with the release of the purloined “ClimateGate” e-mails between top climate scientists.

Bottom line …

In my opinion, global warming is a political scheme to advance international socialism. And, while man does contribute some measure to the overall heat load with his activities, these signals are often obscured or lost within the natural variability of climate. The sad fact is that is often ignored is that carbon dioxide is being falsely demonized – but is essential to the political system as it allows for government control over energy exploration, recovery, production, storage and usage, Energy, the key to controlling the economy, analogous to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act being a political scheme to enable the government to track and control individuals.

For those with a well-defined bullshit detector, you may wish to note that global warming is a natural phenomenon, to be expected after our Planet emerged from the little Ice Age. And, that the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide lags the rise in global temperature by approximately 600 to 1,000 years (depending on the dataset) – giving rise to the simple conclusion that carbon dioxide is not causing global warming. In fact, there is a case to be made for the benefits of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide that promotes increase plant life and oxygen. The rising atmospheric carbon dioxide level can be simply explained as the outgassing of dissolved carbon dioxide in the oceans into the atmosphere as the water temperature rises.

It should also be noted that the Earth appears to have been hotter, colder, with more atmospheric carbon dioxide and with less atmospheric carbon dioxide before the industrial revolution an man’s industrial-based output. What is a constant, however, is that politicians have fought mightily to build perpetual empires to perpetuate their power and influence over individuals – keeping the spoils for themselves and their special interest friends.

Unfortunately, by the time people wake up to the scheme, most of the politicians will be out of office and the special interests will have banked their obscene and ill-gotten gains in productive assets like real estate and corporations controlling hard assets. And, only “We the People” will have been screwed.

It would be nice if my fellow Americans would set aside the racial and hyphenated-American divisions and unite to throw the corrupt bastards out of office. Unfortunately, it appears that my best friend Al is right – people don’t care and will do nothing.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS FOUND YET ANOTHER WAY TO DISRESPECT ISRAEL

As you may know, Israel is only presumed to be a nuclear power and has never declared that they have nuclear weapons or signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

So, now with Barack Obama’s cadre of progressive socialist democrats, some of whom appear to be virulently anti-Israel and anti-Jew, we are seeing signs that Obama’s actions with Syria and Iran being used to disadvantage Israel. More specifically, there are those who are calling for Israel to declare the presence of nuclear weapons, enumerate their holdings, and worst of all, allow non-Israeli parties to inspect their nuclear facilities – all in the name of international peace and good will.

Rouhani says Israel must declare nuclear bomb

Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani Thursday called on Israel to admit it has a nuclear bomb ahead of a landmark meeting between Iranian and western foreign ministers. Rouhani also said he believed a deal could be struck with the international community on his own country's controversial nuclear drive within three to six months.

The Iranian president spoke at a UN nuclear disarmament conference just before Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Mohammad Zarif was to hold landmark talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry and ministers from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia. The meeting was called to discuss western allegations that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons capability and was to be one of the highest level Iran-US encounters since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Rouhani said Iran's arch-foe Israel should join the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which aims to contain the spread of nuclear weapons. Israel has never declared a nuclear arsenal, but is widely assumed to have several bombs. <Source>

Locate Israel …

MiddleEast

 Does this help?

Or better yet?

Israel, surrounded by blood-thirsty enemies whose religious teachings command them to kill infidels (non-believers) and reward them in the afterlife for killing their enemies. Fighters who do not fear, but welcome death. Fighters who think nothing of killing men, women, and children – and even their own – for the cause. Israel does not have significant oil like their neighbors. Israel is not governed by stone-cold monarchs in a dictatorial fashion. And, yet nobody can deny that Israel created a paradise out of the dessert, producing products and services that aid humanity. In fact, the only thing that keeps the average Muslim relatively peaceful is that their leaders point to Israel as the source of all their discomfort, discontent, and disadvantage in the world.

There comes a point when you need to point out the obvious. Even if Israel ceased to exist, the Muslims would still be fighting each other over who is the religious inheritor of the faith. The truth is that Mohammed was less of a prophet than a warlord that created a malignant religious out of subverted Judeo-Christian precepts, but with a twist – reserving unto himself and his followers the ultimate power guaranteed by faith in his religion. Islam, as it presently stands, is antithetical to civil society without a reformation. Something that is not likely to happen until a catastrophe strikes the region. Perhaps a natural disaster of unimaginable proportions or a man-made one born of nuclear arrogance.

Bottom line …

Drawing any moral equivalence between Israel and Islam is, of course, bullshit. There are vast differences between a stable, peaceful, democratic state such as Israel and a malignant unstable, theocratic state sponsor of terrorism. To allow the progressive socialist democrats to use political correctness, multi-culturalism, and moral equivalency to define foreign policy is not only wrong, is is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of the United States.

I have little or no doubt that President Barack Obama does not like Israel or the Jews – having sat for twenty plus years at the feet of his spiritual mention, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, listening to anti-Jew, anti-White, anti-American, and anti-Israel rhetoric that rivals anything put forth by Wright’s buddy Louis Farrakhan. Unlike, President Nixon and President Carter, both of who appeared to be anti-Jew and anti-Israel, there appears to be little holding this President in check.

Pretty much why removing radical progressive socialist democrats from the House and the Senate in the 2014 congressional election cycle is an absolute must.

HARRY REID: THE ONE MAN BELIEVES THAT HE HAS THE ENLIGHTENMENT AND POWER TO THWART THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!

The face of dictatorial progressive socialism …

REID

Senator and Majority Leader Harry Reid … a man who refuses to entertain Republican amendments to bills and rules the progressive socialist democrats with an iron fist. A corrupt man whose ethics appear to be severely compromised. Many believe that Reid, out of spite, will not call the Senate into session until the last minute to reject the vote – theatrically enhancing the drama surrounding a bill that accomplishes little, but kicking the can down the road for a month or so.

What will Harry Reid do? 

House delays Obamacare as shutdown near

House Republicans forced through a short-term government funding bill that delays Obamacare and permanently repeals a tax on medical devices, setting up their most dramatic face-off ever with President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats.

The vote to delay Obamacare was 231-192, with two Republicans voting against the bill, while two Democrats supported it.  The Republicans opposed to the bill were New York Reps. Chris Gibson and Richard Hanna, and the Democrats who supported the measure were North Carolina Rep. Mike McInytre and Utah Rep. Jim Matheson.

The move represents a complete about-face by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the House Republican leadership. They wanted to shift the focus of health care and budgetary squabbles onto the debt ceiling fight, but conservative Republicans honed in on the government funding battle. This strategy — forced upon Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) by the conservative rank-and-file — dramatically increased the chances of a government shutdown come Oct. 1.

The House has again passed a plan that reflects the American people’s desire to keep the government running and stop the president’s health care law,” Boehner said in a post-vote statement. Repealing the medical device tax will save jobs and delaying the president’s health care law for all Americans is only fair given the exemptions the White House has granted to big businesses and insurance companies.”

He added: “Now that the House has again acted, it’s up to the Senate to pass this bill without delay to stop a government shutdown.” The House also passed a bill to fund U.S. troops in case of a shutdown. The chamber further adopted a “conscience clause” that postpones until 2015 an Obamacare requirement that employers cover birth control as part of their health-insurance packages. Their funding resolution keeps government open until Dec. 15 at a level of $986 billion.

Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) have already warned that the GOP proposal is unacceptable. Reid may not even bring back the Senate into session until Monday afternoon — just hours before a shutdown would begin — to reject the GOP proposal.

“Today’s vote by House Republicans is pointless,” Reid said in a statement. “As I have said repeatedly, the Senate will reject any Republican attempt to force changes to the Affordable Care Act through a mandatory government funding bill or the debt ceiling. Furthermore, President Obama has stated that he would veto such measures if they ever reached his desk.”

Bottom line …

Both the progressive socialist democrats and their republican counterparts have had months to work out an acceptable solution to implementing the will of the people. It is not like these deadlines are not known well in advance. And, both sides do not seem all that bothered about leaving the mess to fester while they enjoy their vacations.

It is time that the American people set aside their differences and throw the socialists and communists out of government. Investigating and prosecuting those who have profited from insider trading and other illegal acts such as lying to Congress, gun-running to Mexican drug cartels and Islamo-terrorists.

PATTON VS. EXTREMIST MUSLIMS E-MAIL SURFACES AGAIN: And it is still true as the day it was written!

Sometimes I see something in my e-mail stream that rings with the absolute truth …

  ATTENTION!

To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Citizens, it's time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great.

WHICH PART DON'T YOU GET?

Islam Extremists are peaceful people? My Ass!

Millions of these warped misled sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can.

Some of them are here among us now.

They don't want to convert you and don't want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah's paradise. They don't give a shit how "progressive" you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

clip_image013They want your ass dead, and they think it is God's will for them to do it.

Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke, chemical agents, or even some anthrax -- you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded?

You may never get another chance!

NOW GET OFF YOUR SORRY ASS

And pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about - if you ever gave a damn about anything!

DISMISSED!

Do you have enough guts to forward this email? I did.

Bottom line …

Sometime in this age of politically correct Generals, relieved of command for their “sexual activities” or inability to speak respectfully in politically correct tones when they see America being attacked by our enemies, both foreign and domestic … we need to remind ourselves there was a time when our politicians fought for America – and on the side of the American people – and did not provide aid and comfort to the enemy. Or disrespect our friends and allies while sucking up to our enemies.

It is routinely acknowledged that General Patton was a flawed individual. A man with a messianic complex, a man who was virulently anti-Semitic, and a man who thought that civilian leaders were sometimes an impediment to getting things put into the proper world context. But, he was no fool and was a superb fighting man and an inspiration to his troops. One of a kind.

But then again, there never has been a President like Barack Obama or a corrupt Congress willing to pocket cash from lobbyists representing terrorists and other evildoers. And, while the former President may believe that he is being a gentleman and respecting the Oval Office – he is every bit as much a part of the problem as Obama as he fails to use his status as the former President of the United States to inform the American public of the dangers they continue to face.

At some time there will be a definitive act perpetrated by our enemies that will demand that the American Public rise up and demand that the corrupt be punished and the traitorous sent to prison for life.

Think about this when you vote in the 2014 congressional election cycle and consider those corrupt republican bastards in Congress who “go along to get along” And, those progressive socialist democrats who want to sell out capitalism in favor of European-style international socialism and become just another unexceptional member-nation of the corrupt and impotent United Nations.

PROOF THAT OBAMA AND HIS PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS WERE LYING ABOUT OBAMACARE BEING ABOUT COST-SAVINGS THROUGH INCREASED COMPETITION

President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats explained over-and-over again that competition between insurance companies will drive down the cost of insurance plans to the benefit of the country and individual citizens. Unfortunately, this appears to be as much as a lie as the 9/11 anniversary attack in Benghazi being caused by a protest over a video. It appears that this Administration, perhaps more than others, is willing to lie to the American people in order to pursue their prime objective, disadvantaging capitalism and decentralized control over the economy in favor of socialism and centralized control over our economy.

Here is HHS touting competitive cost savings – lower than originally predicted …

Premiums on Obamacare marketplaces beat expectations, report shows

When open enrollment begins on the online, state-based marketplaces established under Obamacare, premiums nationwide are expected to be around 16 percent lower than originally predicted, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department said in a new report released Wednesday.

 

The administration sees the lower-than-expected premiums as a sign that the plan to drive down health costs for consumers by increasing competition is working. They also point to the insurers entering the individual health insurance market for the first time as a sign of strong competition, as well as the variety of plans that will be available on the market.

For families nationwide, "these new options will finally make health insurance work within their budget," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told reporters Tuesday.

She noted that, according to the report, six in 10 uninsured Americans will be able to find coverage for less than $100 a month, while the average consumer in one of the 36 states with a federally-run marketplace will be able to choose from an average of 53 different plans.

The big lie …

North Carolina Representative Renee Ellmers has released a statement proving that President Obama was lying when he claimed that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was about cost savings due to increased competition.

NC Company to Gain Monopoly under Obamacare Exchanges -- Blue Cross Blue Shield and Coventry to be the Only Providers in North Carolina to Offer Obamacare Insurance Exchanges

Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (R-NC-02) released the following statement after receiving news that health insurance monopolies are forming as a result of Obamacare in North Carolina:

"We are now four days away from Obamacare's implementation and each moment, we are receiving new reports as to how devastating this law will be for the men and women of North Carolina. Yesterday, we discovered that health insurance rates are expected to triple for women and quadruple for men in North Carolina once this law goes into effect. Today, we were informed that virtual monopolies are now being created to sell this poison pill to our people."

"We were promised lower costs and more competition. Yet Obamacare is doing the exact opposite. The whole point of an online marketplace was to provide options, so North Carolinians could go online, compare prices, and choose plans from different companies. That is how competition is supposed to work! Although seven insurance companies currently operate in North Carolina, under the new Obamacare exchanges, those options will dwindle down to one in the majority of counties."

Starting October 1st, only two insurance companies will offer health insurance in North Carolina. Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) will offer insurance in all 100 counties while Coventry (now owned by Aetna) will not be available in the eastern part of the state. Coventry will only offer insurance in 39 counties, leaving BCBS of North Carolina with a monopoly in the remaining 61 counties. The variety will be even less pronounced in the exchange set up for small groups - the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) with only BCBS offering plans in 2014, according to Tracy Baker, Carolinas CEO for Coventry.

The Associated Press reported this morning that in North Carolina, over 60 percent of the counties will have only one insurance provider to choose from when the Obamacare insurance exchanges go live in just 4 days:

"Only Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina will offer insurance plans available statewide on the exchange. The only other company selling coverage on North Carolina's exchange is Coventry Health Care of the Carolinas. It plans to offer plans on the exchange in 39 counties, including rural ones and those that include Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Asheville and Fayetteville. Aetna acquired Coventry in May."

"North Carolina shoppers also will have fewer than half the policies to choose from than the average of 53 plans across the 36 states."

Bottom line …

Doubling down on the fundamental mistake of allowing for-profit insurance companies to insert themselves between the patient and the doctor, with incentives than penalize good medicine and incentivize insurance companies to delay or deny care to qualified individuals – resulting in even larger executive bonuses – the progressive socialist democrats refuse to delay or re-work this unconstitutional and dastardly plan.

To this day, most of the regulations, commissions, panels, boards, databases, and other infrastructure either do not exist or have not been tested under a record patient load.

Common sense tells you that you cannot add millions of new patients – many of them with government-subsidized premiums – to the medical marketplace without a substantial increase in facilities, physicians, nurses, diagnostic equipment and additional infrastructure.

But, then again, that is the socialist plan – to create a chaotic and unworkable system that can be resolved only with a complete government takeover of healthcare in the United States under a socialistic one-payer system. In essence turning the United States into England, France, and Canada.

And here are the names of the 25 Senators who failed to stand up to Barack Obama and joined the radical progressive socialist democrats in destroying American healthcare.

Remember these names in your state when you are denied healthcare or healthcare is delayed.

Amerika: Why not elect a communist to be Mayor of New York?

At least we found a progressive socialist democrat who is not afraid of the title that describes his beliefs …

“I thought the story clearly could have been more balanced and I thought the particular use of terminologies–I found it surprising, let’s just put it that way,” responded, Mr. de Blasio, likely referring to the paper’s mention that he had described himself back in 1990 as an advocate of “democratic socialism.”

“Yes, I did write that phrase on a piece of paper in 1990, but I always described my philosophy of being made up of a blend of influences and ideas,” explained Mr. de Blasio. “I was surprised in the year 2013 to see in that newspaper that particular approach.”

The candidate went on to provide a description of that blend, which was described in the story.

“I think that article didn’t fully represent what I feel except for one passage,” he said, “that very accurately noted that one part of me is a New Deal Democrat–just an updated version of it–one part of me is probably similar to a European Social Democrat, and I’m also very deeply influenced by liberation theology, which I learned a lot about in the years I worked on Latin America.”

Overall, he said, people should understand him as “a consistent progressive with a very strong activist worldview and someone who wants to make substantial change in this city.”

Mr. de Blasio also yet again defended his support for the Nicaraguan Sandinista party, which has been slammed repeatedly by his Republican rival, Joe Lhota. Source: Bill de Blasio Explains His ‘Liberation Theology’ | Politicker

Bottom line …

What the hell is happening to America when a candidate for one of the nation’s premier cities can openly proclaim himself to be a progressive socialist democrat interested in revolutionary-style change?

No pun intended, but there is something radically wrong in America when our politicians seem to espouse the values of our life-long enemies.

WTF: John McCain Hires Elizabeth O'Bagy, Disgraced Lobbyist with ties to Militant Syrian Terrorists Pushing For U.S. Funding and Intervention?

Why is sell-out John McCain pushing so hard for the United States involvement in the Syrian civil war between radical militant terrorists – with no apparent national interest at stake other than Obama’s reputation and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid and mercenary assistance? Duh! It must be the money!

John McCain Hires Elizabeth O'Bagy, Syria Analyst Recently Fired Over False Ph.D Claim

 

Less than a month after being fired for falsely claiming to hold a Ph.D, Syria researcher Elizabeth O'Bagy has a new job.

Foreign Policy's The Cable reported Friday that O'Bagy has been hired by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to work as a legislative assistant. It was McCain who propelled her into the national conversation, reading part of an "important op-ed" she wrote for the Wall Street Journal at a Senate hearing on Syria earlier in September.

"Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year," McCain told The Cable in a statement. "I look forward to her joining my office." O'Bagy was previously employed by the Institute for the Study Of War, who fired her on Sept. 11 after learning that her Dr. title was untrue. She had appeared on various TV networks under that guise, including CNN and Fox News.

Bottom line …

Believe it or not, John McCain has little or no ability as a military strategist, his sole credentials are that he was an unlucky pilot shot down in enemy territory and tortured – eventually becoming a self-acknowledged collaborator with the North Vietnamese.

To think that this scumbag could have been the President of the United States speaks to the heights from which we have fallen to the depths of an Obama Presidency. Something stinks when a major Senator cannot articulate why we need to intervene in a civil war where both parties hate us and will use weapons we supply to attack us after a decisive winner is declared. Who yanks this guy’s chains?

Obamacare: Here are the twenty-five Republicans who voted with the progressive socialist democrats to screw the average American citizen and move us further down the road to international socialism!

As you feel the pain from Obamacare implementation, remember these twenty-five Senators, RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) stood with progressive socialist democrats to implement a socialist takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy and to build the most comprehensive government tracking database that keeps a dossier on every America. All of which is unconstitutional and being enforced at the point of a gun by the Internal Revenue Service.

When given a chance to stand up for America, these turncoats and democrat ass-lickers turned tail and ran …

Bottom line …

Never forget that these men and women form the fifth column that has destroyed the Republican Party and American ideals. Led by John McCain, a man who collaborated with the enemy in Vietnam and continues to be a fictional “war hero” in the eyes of the media.

We have been sold out by a group that is working hard to secure a democrat victory in the next congressional and presidential election. And, to think John McCain was the Republican candidate for the Presidency makes me sick.
