Obama Flubs Job Count: Why Trust His Health Care Numbers?
Creation or salvation of jobs in non-existent congressional districts and other anomalies
By John Lillpop Thursday, November 26, 2009
The Obama administration has shown a remarkable inability to apply simple math in order to keep track of the number of jobs created and saved as a result of the stimulus blowout.
Without accusing anyone of anything (except fraud and deceit), it is an incredibly curious fact that the White House consistently reports creation or salvation of jobs in non-existent congressional districts and other anomalies which erroneously inflate the success of the stimulus bill.
Given the administration’s dreadful performance, why would anyone of sound mind and disposition trust anything this president and his like-minded hucksters in congress have to say?
This band of bandits want the American people to believe that they will add 30-40 million uninsured to the ranks of the insured AND, by so doing, cut medical costs and the federal deficit.
Does that make any sense whatsoever?
Is there even one person in America who does not believe that if ObamaCare is enacted it will quickly join social security and Medicare as bankrupt entitlements programs that will add more even more crushing debt to the backs of American taxpayers?
Given the fact that Barack Obama and his administration can not keep track of the number of jobs created or saved, how in the hell they be expected to accurately predict the costs associated with the Marxist HMO that they call health care reform?

Never Stop
Ask the following questions and demand answers
By Bill Turner Tuesday, September 1, 2009
We live in trying times. No one in Congress or the White House is following the Constitution. Laws are being passed, being proposed, and policies implemented that are in direct violation of the Constitution of the united States of America. There is a czarist layer, a fourth leg of government, not established or authorized by the government.
There is a Marxist as president. There are criminals, communists and Marxists in the presidents cabinet and none of our elected officials, you know the ones who took the oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, are doing anything about it. The actions of B. Hussein Obama, both Emmanuel’s, Axelrod and Congress are acts of treason and sedition.
As Americans, all Americans, conservatives, liberals, independents and everyone in between should be asking why their God given, Constitutional rights are being taken away and, while you are asking those questions, ask the following questions and demand answers:
With what authority did president B. Hussein Obama take over the banking and financial industries? The American government is in charge of and owns majority shares in a number of financial institutions. The government, with no authority, put the 19 largest banks in America through a “stress test” to determine if the government should supervise and run them. With what authority is this happening? Why are the banks being nationalized?
How is it that B. Hussein Obama came to fire the CEO of General Motors? Why is our government the majority shareholder in two of the big three auto makers in America? By what authority did this stock purchase take place? Why is the auto industry being nationalized and under what authority?
What section of the Constitution has allowed B. Hussein Obama to appoint 32 Czars, without congressional approval, accountable only to him, not to the voters, or Congress, who would have control over a wide range of US policy decisions? Why is there a Stimulus Accountability Czar, an Urban Czar, a Compensation Czar, an Iran Czar, an Auto Industry Czar, a Cyber Security Czar, an Energy Czar, a Bank Bailout Czar, and more than a dozen other government bureaucrats with unchecked regulatory and fiduciary powers over US domestic and foreign policy?
B. Hussein Obama ran a campaign based on “hope & change”. He promised lower deficits. Obama delivered, a deficit that would be $915 billion in the first six months of the his presidency and a projected annual deficit of $1.75 trillion dollars, triple the $454.8 billion dollars in 2008, for which the previous administration was highly criticized by obama and his fellow democrats. Congress passed Obama’s $3.53 trillion dollar federal budget for fiscal year 2010. The projected deficit over the next ten years, without cap & trade or health care legislation is $14.4 trillion dollars. By what authority is the Treasury Department borrowing $5 billion dollars a day to pay interest on our debt?
Why is it that B. Hussein Obama and Congress have directed FBI agents to read Miranda rights to detainees captured on the battlefield and held at US military detention facilities in Afghanistan? Why has obama ordered the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility with no plan for the disposition of the 200-plus enemy combatants held there? Who approved the release of several suspected terrorists at Guantanamo and had them sent to live in freedom in Bermuda, at the expense of the American taxpayers? Why is it that Department of Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano, is allowed to label returning soldiers terrorists, after sending real terrorists to Bermuda at our expense?
Why would Congress not hold B. Hussein Obama accountable for his traveling to the middle east and bowing to the Saudi king, repeatedly apologizing for America’s past actions? B. Hussein Obama traveled to Latin America where he warmly greeted Venezuela’s strongman Hugo Chavez and sat passively in the audience while Nicaraguan Marxist thug Daniel Ortega charged America with terrorist aggression in Central America. President Obama is disgraceful for his actions and seditious for his remarks regarding a nation at war, America.
Obama and his czars seek to dismantle conservative talk radio through the imposition of a new “Fairness Doctrine.” He wants to curtail the First Amendment rights of those who may disagree with his policies via blogs, cable news networks, or advocacy ads. Most major network television stations and most newspapers will only sing obama’s praises like state-run media in communist countries, why? And, why is this attack upon America being tolerated by Americans?
The legislation being ordered by obama, written by his minions and pushed through Congress by the Marxists and fools that inhabit that hallowed hall, are to eliminate states rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment and to give the federal government sweeping new powers over policies currently under the province of local and state governments, voted on by the people. Obama plans to control the schools, energy production, the environment, health care, and the wealth of every US citizen, creating a totalitarian state. Under what authority is this being done?
The president, the courts, and the government have ignored the American Constitution and have seized powers which the founders of our country fought to restrict. Why has no one stopped this?
So, there are the questions surrounding B. Hussein Obama, his minions, and Congress. What are you prepared to do about it? Are you prepared to stand up and demand answers? Are you prepared to ask obama and congress these questions, again and again, until you get answers and get the change we want? I want my country back and I am not willing to stop until I draw my last breath, what about you? Elliott Ness once said, “Never stop, never stop fighting till the fight is done”. Well my fellow Americans, the fight is not done. We are nowhere near the end of this battle. Be bold. Stand up. Demand this stop. Demand answers. Demand people be held accountable for their actions.
Marxists, communists, socialists and other anti-American, anti-Constitutionalists, go back into the shadows, back under the rocks you crawled out from, and force your ugly, fascist, totalitarian regime on a people, a nation, that does not mind failure, does not mind enslavement to their government and a huge national debt. Leave America alone. It is my country. It is my Constitution. It is my America and you cannot have it for your brave new world.

Seek Truth and Pursue it Steadily
Watch your freedom, Watch your Constitution, Watch your wallet
By Jim O'Neill Wednesday, August 12, 2009

“There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.”—George Washington
I’d like to share with you a couple of quotes by dictators from the Far Left. First, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it” —Adolf Hitler
And here’s one by Lenin: “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
Can you imagine George Washington, or any of the other Founding Fathers saying such things? Of course not, but to the Far Left those two quotes are gospel.
After watching Obama’s fake “town hall meeting,” filled with kool-aid drinkers, I have a few things to say.
Defending the status quo: Defending individual rights, the Constitution, and American freedom
Obama said today that those who oppose Obama-Care are merely “defending the status quo.”
If Obama defines “defending the status quo,” as defending individual rights, the Constitution, and American freedom, then d—n straight I’m defending the status quo.
I resent Obama implying that I’m merely a shill for “special interests,” and denigrating my patriotism as nothing more than an impediment to constructive change. I won’t even go into “Madame of the House” Pelosi calling me un-american.
Don’t tell me that my resistance to your attempt to make America into a socialist/fascist collective, is motivated by hard-heartedness towards those who need health care.
Obama’s eloquent way of obfuscating and misdirecting
Almost every conservative is behind health care reform. We are simply bright enough not to confuse health care reform, with a socialist/fascist takeover hiding under the guise of Obama-Care.
Obama is the Far Left’s chief snake-oil salesman, and as such, his expertise at verbal smoke and mirrors is justifiably renowned. His ability to mix truth with lies in a seamless whole, would have made Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Goebbels, go green with envy.
He is so good at what he does—but so was Hitler, so was Lenin, so was Robespierre. So is every demagogue who has successfully pushed the Far Left’s collectivist doctrine—from the terror of the French Revolution, up to the present day..
A few weeks ago I saw Newt Gingrich interviewed, and he talked about hearing an eloquent speech by Obama about health care that, while entertaining, left him no more informed about the details of Obama-Care than he was before.
Newt compared Obama’s speech to President Reagan’s speeches, and he noted that whereas one of Reagan’s gifts, was the ability to explain and clarify, Obama’s “gift” lay in his eloquent way of obfuscating and misdirecting.
This was a less than surprising observation, as the Far Left has historically made a science, if not an art, of obfuscation, misdirection, and just plain lying.
Roger Kimball made the following observation almost twenty years ago, when discussing what Far Left professors were teaching American college students.
“As anyone with even a passing acquaintance with the products of the new academic scholarship knows—writing [and rhetoric] no longer means attempting to express oneself as clearly and precisely as possible, but is rather a deliberately “subversive” activity meant to challenge the “bourgeois”...faith in clarity, intelligibility, and communication.”
Far Left has no firm moral foundation
I believe Obama was a college student around that time, associating with, in his words, “Marxist professors.”
The philosophers that the Far Left adore—from the French Revolution’s, Rousseau, to the card carrying Nazi, Heidegger, (darling of the radical French philosophers of the 1960s), are all atheists. Marx, Engels, Nietzsche, et al.—all atheists, everyone.
The Far Left always promotes a religion of the state, because they have no spiritual life of their own.
They smugly dismiss a belief in God as being fit only for clueless sheep. They refer to religion as being “the opiate of the people.”
This means that the Far Left has no firm moral foundation whatsoever. They would have us believe that just because all of the philosophies that they read and espouse are atheistic, that it doesn’t mean that they are spiritually bankrupt. Yeah, right.
Among other things, the fact that atheism permeates the Far Left, means that they have no reason to be honest—other than personal preference. They believe that lying has no consequences—only getting caught lying is bad.
Pardon me if I cast a jaundiced eye, upon the idea that the Far Left are such sterling examples of moral rectitude, that they have no need for spiritual beliefs, in order to rein in the baser elements of their nature.
If you catch a fascist/socialist in a lie, they’ll fall back on another lie (or the truth, if that will serve as well). They will keep falling back, and falling back, until finally cornered.
Watch your freedom, Watch your Constitution, Watch your wallet
At that point, with no further fall-back positions available, they’ll retreat to their ultimate fall-back ploy. They’ll tell you that logic and reason are meaningless, and ask, “What’s the truth, anyway?” Everything is relative to these people. Except one thing.
They are adamant about installing all of us in a Collective—a Rousseauian dream of a people’s “utopia.” That their dream always turns into a nightmare, is of absolutely no significance to these people.
The Fascist/Marxist Far Left is a toxic waste-dump of nihilistic sophistry and lies. The closer you are politically to them, the more tainted you become.
You absolutely cannot trust anything they say. They might be telling you the truth, or lying straight to your face. You just can’t tell.
What you can be sure of, is that “the end always justifies the means” to such people, and they will use any means at their disposal to further their agenda of building a people’s “utopia.” The fact that such “utopias” have historically ended in failure and bloodshed notwithstanding.
So don’t listen to their words, instead watch what they do, watch their actions. Dig into their past, like Michelle Malkin does in “Culture of Corruption.” And watch your freedom, watch your Constitution, and watch your wallet.
