SNL’s Mocks Obama’s Shilling of Obamacare … Obama Takes Selfies with the Pope and Kisses Justin Bieber on the Lips to Push Healthcare.gov
SNL mocks Barack Obama for his over the top, excessive selling of Obamacare. But then again, hasn’t Obama made a complete mockery of the presidency?
In the final 48 hours before the deadline to sign up for healthcare, Obama’s aides forced him to be photographed in Pharrell’s hat and alongside Kim Kardashian and Harry Styles. And “a cat dressed as Elsa from Frozen.” And BatKid. And the Pope.
Top Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Admits Pushing Hollywood Writers to Obamacare into scripts of TV Shows and Movies … Joseph Goebbels Would Be So Proud
UNBELIEVABLE ACTIONS OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ACTUALLY THIS SHOULD BE TERRIFYING TO AMERICANS.
To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda.
In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics.
Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.
I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. (Joseph Goebbels)
What might be most shocking about the below Valerie Jarrett interview with ‘Top That’ on Pop Sugar.com is that Democrats and especially the Obama Administration does not even hide it anymore that they and the media are the Democrat-Media Complex. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was out in LA this week meeting with television and movie producers and writers to encourage them to include favorable Obamacare mentions in their scripts. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! A government going to the media to shill their agenda for script and product placement to make it appear that they are mainstream and brainwash the people with propaganda. This is still the United States, is it not?
“That’s the cool thing,” a host said to the presidential advisor. “You’ve been reaching out to people that are, you know, outside of the norm of what the president might work with. Who else are you working with? Like celebrities, personalities, things like that?”
“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of propaganda, would be so proud of Valerie Jarrett’s actions.
Control of the arts and media was not just a matter of personnel. Soon the content of every newspaper, book, novel, play, film, broadcast and concert, from the level of nationally-known publishers and orchestras to local newspapers and village choirs, was subject to supervision by the Propaganda Ministry, although a process of self-censorship was soon effectively operating in all these fields, leaving the Ministry in Berlin free to concentrate on the most politically sensitive areas such as insuring that both major newspapers, and the new far-reaching, instantaneous state radio presented the unified Nazi worldview. In his 1933 speech, “Radio as the Eighth Great Power” Goebbels said:
“We .. intend a principled transformation in the worldview of our entire society, a revolution of the greatest possible extent that will leave nothing out, changing the life of our nation in every regard …
The following are Joseph Goebbels’ quotes. It would be pretty difficult to tell whether they were from the Nazi minister of propaganda, or Team Obama:
- “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” (Joseph Goebbels)
- “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” (Joseph Goebbels)
Leading Democratic Pollster Celinda Lake Says to Democrats, “Don’t Defend” Obamacare … Also Predicts “Huge Turnout Disadvantage” in 2014 for Dems
Democrats Obamacare chickens are coming home to roost …
Earlier this week, following the release of the George Washington University Battleground poll, leading Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, whose firm Lake Research Partners provides the Democratic analysis for that bipartisan poll, told Democrats two things they did not want to hear. One, defend Obamacare at your own peril and two, the GOP is going to have a huge voter turnout advantage in the 2014 midterm elections. At a briefing hosted by the Christian Science Monitor Lake said, “In terms of Obamacare, don’t defend it. Say it was flawed from the beginning, and we’re going to fix it.” Lake also said that the poll indicated that 64% of Republicans say they are “extremely likely” to vote in November’s midterms, compared with 57% of Democrats. Obamacare will be an albatross around the political necks of Democrats.
A leading Democratic pollster predicted a “sobering” turnout disadvantage for her party in this year’s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate “a bigger economic agenda” this fall.
“There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge,” Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. “There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it’s really dramatic this time.”
Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing Democratic intensity by seven points.
The poll indicated that 64% of Republicans say they are “extremely likely” to vote in November’s midterms, compared with 57% of Democrats.
So, what does she mean say it was flawed from the beginning? That Obama and Democrats knew that Obamacare was based on a lie to the America people that they could keep their healthcare plan, doctors and hospital, if they liked them and they voted to pass it anyhow? Going to fix it? How does one fix something that is so inherently flawed and based on a lie? How does one fix something so unpopular and most of the pain has not even been experienced by the American people because it has been purposely delayed by Barack Obama for political reasons.
Obamacare was never a popular idea, bill or law with the American people. It never garnered a majority of popular support with “We the People”. Now even those who were some what in favor or were willing to give it a chance realize it was all based on a lie. The 2014 midterm elections will right the wrong of the 2012 elections that we now know was a fraudulent election based upon lies and scandals.
Barack Obama, the Liar in Chief Strikes Again … Health Industry Officials say ObamaCare Related Premiums Will Double in Parts of the Country,
But I thought Obama said under Obamacare our premiums would go down … Not so says Health Industry Officials.
What would the day be like without out another Barack Obama lie regarding Obamacare? The Hill is reporting that healthcare industry officials are saying that O-care related premiums will double in some parts of the country. This is in direct contrast to what Obama promised and (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continually spins. As one industry official said, “It’s pretty shortsighted because I think everybody knows that the way the exchange has rolled out … is going to lead to higher costs.” Gee, ya think? Let alone they have missed their mark badly on the number of enrollees, and more importantly, the number of young, healthy, non-subsidy seeking enrollees.
Don’t worry Barack, they won’t find out the truth until it’s too late, Hope & Change, Hope & Change, lower premiums … ah-ha-ha-ha!!!
Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.
The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015.
The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but grow more slowly than in the past.
“The increases are far less significant than what they were prior to the Affordable Care Act,” the secretary said in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee.
Her comment baffled insurance officials, who said it runs counter to the industry’s consensus about next year.
“It’s pretty shortsighted because I think everybody knows that the way the exchange has rolled out … is going to lead to higher costs,” said one senior insurance executive who requested anonymity.
Will some benefit from Obama, certainly. But it does not even come close the the amount of people that will be adversely affected. It just goes to show you that if a lie is told long enough and loud enough, and not questioned in any responsible manner, it can become the truth by an apathetic people. Oh yea, and if you like your healthcare plan and doctor, you will be able to keep them too.
Obama promises the applauding lemmings that their premiums will go down under Obamacare
Remember when Obama said that for those who get their healthcare insurance through their workplace, that through Obamacare your employers would see their premiums decrease by 3000% and would be able to give you a raise? Buying that American? Why do you think Obama has delayed the employer mandate for Obamacare, maybe because that is where an overwhelming majority of Americans receive their healthcare and the premiums would escalate, not go down? Or because your employer would toss you off the plan and onto Obamacare? And maybe, just maybe to get by the 2014 and 2014 elections.
Now Obama is promising saving families an average of $2500 a year per family
These people will find a way to destroy anything fun … Obamacare Bracketology … STOP THE MADNESS!!!
As if Obamacare is not already the most over-marketed product ever. Now the Obama administration are launching a new marketing campaign wrapped around the NCAA men’s and women’s college basketball tournaments. Seriously? First of all, Obama should not be filling out NCAA brackets. I would like to think that the President of the United States might have more important things to do. At least, he better! Also, stop attempting to pick winners and losers. With your track record, it has been mainly losers. Could we Americans just have something that is free from Obamacare? Please, we beg you!!!
For the Obama administration, March Madness is another chance to press young people — particularly young men — to sign up for health care.
Health care officials are launching a new marketing campaign wrapped around the NCAA men’s and women’s college basketball tournaments that start this week.
Starting Monday, Obama, some of his aides and celebrity athletes who back the health care plan will conduct interviews, make public service ads and use social media appeals as a key deadline looms on March 31.
Citing the popularity of college basketball during the tournament season known as March Madness, White House senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness said, “We’re putting on a full-court press to remind our fellow fans that there are two weeks left to sign up for quality, affordable health insurance.”
Look what Russian state run TV is saying as American Democrat run media remains silent …
Anchor Dmitry Kiselyov of Russian state run TV said on Sunday, Russia was the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”. So much for that Obama/Russian reset, eh? The anchor went on to say, “Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama.” Newsbusters points out that mum is the world when it comes to the US media reporting on the story. However, it would appear that the media to the North did.
A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”, in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.
“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.
Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.
His program was broadcast as the first exit polls were being published showing an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voting to leave Ukraine and join Russia.
He stood in his studio in front of a gigantic image of a mushroom cloud produced after a nuclear attack, with the words “into radioactive ash”.
“Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama,” he added, pointing to opinion polls which then popped up on the screen.
It’s Official, Democrats are in Panic Mode Ahead of 2014 Midterm Elections … Some Veteran House Dems To Retire
The New York Times has officially declared that the Democrats should be worried ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Why so concerned, Barack Obama’s sinking job approval ratings, the GOP’s special election House win in Florida 13 and the continued dissatisfaction with Obamacare to name a few. Democrats have been in denial for quite some time when it comes to their chances of success in 2014. However, Barack Obama has become toxic and so have his policies and agenda.
Of course Barack Obama sent
Baghdad Bob White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer to go out on ‘Meet the Press‘ this past Sunday and spin the obvious. Pfeiffer said,“the president will be an asset in every way possible to help these candidates” and that Democrats are on the right side of the issue that matters most to Americans, jobs and the economy. Okay, try not to laugh. Really, Americans agree with Obama/Democrats on the economy, polls would say a much different story.
Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.
The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates.
The latest in a cascade of bad news came Friday when Scott Brown, a former senator from Massachusetts, announced an exploratory committee to challenge the incumbent Democrat in New Hampshire, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and when the Republican-aligned “super PAC” American Crossroads said it would spend $600,000 to help his effort.
Earlier, another top-tier Republican recruit, Representative Cory Gardner, decided to challenge Senator Mark Udall of Colorado; the two races create unanticipated opportunities improving Republicans’ chances to take control of the Senate. No prominent Democrats predict their party will win back the House.
Over the weekend on CNN on ‘Inside Politics’, John King said that because of the results in the Florida 13 special election, look for a few more veteran House Democrats to retire seeing the handwriting on the wall and no chance for Democrats to win back the House.
Watch in the week or so ahead for a few more retirements by veteran House Democrats.
I’m told the Florida special election results were the last straw for at least two and perhaps more House Democrats facing tough 2014 races.
Are You Serious, Barack Obama Lectures on Budgeting, Obama Says … You Can Afford Obamacare If You Cut Out Cable & Cell Phones from Your Lives
El Ling Mentira: Hmm, I thought Obama’s ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ was supposed to be affordable? Or as they say south of the border … asequible.
It would appear that even the Hispanics have problems with Obamacare. At a town hall-style meeting with the Spanish-language media, President Barack Obama had the audacity to actually arrogantly lecture others on budgeting properly in order to pay for his signature piece of legislation. What the hell would Obama know about budgeting? This from the president who has increased our federal debt more than any other one in history. When a consumer complained in a letter that he could not find affordable rates under Obamacare, Obama said smugly that maybe he has not prioritized health care.UNREAL!!!
“If you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill, other things they are spending on. It may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.”
The difference is Mr. President that it is their choice to own cable or a cell phone, not a federally mandated law to purchase a product or be be hit with a punitive tax for a service that one does not even purchase. As all can see from this Spanish-language town hall, even Hispanics loath Obamacare. Hint, hint GOP!!!
Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:
“If the President actually believes that a family earning less than $40,000 per year can afford nearly $4,000 in health insurance premiums, then he truly does not understand middle-income families. Americans do not need the President to tell them how to Budget their households. People are already cutting back on things like cable television and cell phones, just to compensate for an awful economy.This President promised he would deliver on affordable health care. Instead, premiums are up, out-of-pocket expenses are up, and overall cost of living is up. The President simply doesn’t get it. And his condescending attitude adds insult to injury.”
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of more of Obama’s lies to the American people regarding the cost of Obamacare. In the video below, Obama says that the cost of Obamacare will cost less than a cell phone. Now he tells people they have to prioritize and give up their cell phone to pay for Obamacare. What a joke. How would that political slogan have played prior to the 2012 presidential campaign … You can have Obamacare or your smart phone, not both … YOU DECIDE!
This man truly is ‘El Ling Mentira’.
Between Two Ferns: Zach Galifinakis and President Barack Obama … Are You Kidding, Obama Brings the US Presidency to al All-Time Low
Obama, The Comedian in Chief: And you though former President Bill Clinton brought the US Presidency to an all-time low, Barack Obama tries his best to outdo Bubba …
UNREAL … Barack Obama agreed to do an interview on ‘Funny or Die’ to shill Obamacare. It is unbelievable that some one in Obama’s staff actually thought that this was a good idea and does that individual(s) still have a job. This was a complete train-wreck from start to finish. But then again Obama is used to train-wrecks, he has Obamacare. And please to the folks on the LEFT, this was not edgy, avant garde humor, is stunk out loud. Yes I understand this was supposed to be a farce. However, this was so below a president. Speaking of Obamacare, what will Barack show up to next to shill his disastrous “un”affordable healthcare act, cutting the ribbon at supermarkets? That sad reality is that Obama has been nothing but a joke and the American
people sheeple have elected and reelected this un-serious person. The jokes on you America and its not rally that funny.
Galifinakis asked Obama, “what is it like to be the last black president”? Obama’s visibly annoyed and thin skinned response was, “Seriously, what is it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president”!
Other questions Obama is asked and comments:
- Where are you planning to build your presidential library, in Hawaii or you home country of Kenya?
- You said if you had a son, you would not let his play football. What makes you think he would want to play football, what if he is a nerd like you?
- Obama shilling Obamacare … Have you heard of the Affordible Healthcare Act … Zach responds, Oh that’s the thing that doesn’t work.
Bill O’Reilly adds his two cents on Obama’s foolish PR attempt. O’Reilly said, Abraham Lincoln Would Never Have Appeared on Funny or Die. Actually, Josh Lincoln and George Lincoln would not have appeared on this show. Who you ask? Exactly.
As anyone could have expected after watching Fox News today, Bill O’Reilly opened his show with a take down of President Barack Obama’s appearance on Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. “Using a comedic web site to enroll people is a little bit desperate, don’t you think?” he asked.
“I’m all for PR,” O’Reilly continued, saying he would have fine with someone like Press Secretary Jay Carney going on Funny or Die, but not with the president of the United States. “All I can tell is you is Abe Lincoln would not have done it,” he said definitively.
“There comes a point when serious times call for serious action,” O’Reilly said. “We’re a divided nation which talking points believes is in decline. Mr. Obama is quick, has a good sense of humor, those are assets. But he needs to be aware, he needs to be aware of how his enemies perceive him, because I believe the testing of America is just getting started.
A note to The Raw Story, it is no success just because people clicked on a the Healthcare.suck website from this interview. 19,000, really? You could get 190,000 to click on a story that is entitled bizarre banana falls. Just because people click on a page hardly means they have signed up for Obama’s failed and disastrous health care plan. You know better than that.
But it also has apparently been effective. A government health care spokeswoman said Tuesday afternoon that 19,000 viewers of the Galifianakis video had clicked through to visit Healthcare.gov.
It is a shame just how low this president has sunk the United States.
Charles Krauthammer Nails It With Putin & Barack Obama … “Putin Looks at this Guy and Says I’m Dealing with an Adolescent, this is a Community Organizer, He Doesn’t Understand How the World Works”
HOW ON EARTH DID THIS “ADOLESCENT” CLOWN GET REELECTED!!!
Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor gets it 100% completely right with regards to Barack Obama and how he is viewed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Last night Bill O’Reilly and Charles Krauthammer showed just how weak the US position is against Putin because Barack Obama is a “community organizer” and “adolescent,” rather than a Commander in Chief.
“Putin looks at this guy and says I’m dealing with an adolescent, this is a community organizer, he doesn’t understand how the world works. What Putin did, a KGB agent and a thug, he pockets all the things Obama offers him for nothing, he walks away and then he struts the world stage knowing he has an adversary in the White House who will do nothing. And he has done nothing.”
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday blasted President Barack Obama’s handling of Russia, starting with his administration’s infamous “reset” towards the beginning of his presidency.
Krauthammer explained that the U.S. and Russia were not on the greatest terms after the Bush administration and some of America’s allies “froze” relations. However, the sanctions were implemented after Russia invaded Georgia in 2008.
“First thing Obama does when he comes into office — the reset means the reversal of all the freezes all the sanctions,” he told host Bill O’Reilly. “That was a freebie, [Putin] didn’t give up anything. That’s the first signal the Europeans are getting from this new president.”
