71% of Voters Believe It’s Somewhat Likely President Obama or Senior Officials in his Administration Were Aware Before Obamacare was Passed that Health Insurance Costs Would Go Up for Some Americans.” … #You Lie
71% of Americans believe they were lied to about Obamacare …
From the Washington Examiner via a recent Rasmussen poll, that 71% of Americans believe that President Obama and his health care team knew well in advance that insurance costs would surge despite his promises they wouldn’t. Also, 40% want HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to retire or be fired. So not only did they know you could not keep your insurance if you liked it, they also knew the costs would increase as well.
Rasmussen Reports found that 71 percent of voters believe “it’s at least somewhat likely that President Obama or senior officials in his administration were aware long before the law began being implemented that health insurance costs would go up for some Americans.”
Worse for the president: Only 18 percent want Obamacare to move on unchanged, but 43 percent want it repealed and the process started over and another 35 percent want Congress to fix it in a piecemeal fashion.
However, I have to sadly agree with the comments by Debra Heine at Brietbart.com with regards to the apathy and “oh well” mentality that is going on in the United States. We are a government of, by and for the people and ‘We the People” seem more engaged to the celebrity of the day and reality TV.
When the vast majority of American voters can agree they were lied to in order pass a controversial bill on a party line vote that amounts to a takeover of nearly 1/6 of the economy, and a large percent of them say, yeah, so what? – Our country is in deep trouble. According to Rasmussen, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still approve of Obama’s job performance. Unbelievable.
America, would you stand the hell up for yourselves and take your liberty, freedoms and country back! Pretend like you actually care. The Founding Fathers are shaking their collective heads at the apathy.
In other polling, Rasmussen finds that 51% believe that the “individual” mandate should be delayed, while 34% say no.
More Executive Orders from The Imperial President Obama Creating “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” to Implement “Climate Change” Agenda
WAKE UP AMERICA, STOP THE TYRANNY!!! Barack Obama, the Imperial president is at it again with his global warming, oh sorry, “climate change” agenda …
The Halloween season, but nothing should be more scary to Americans that Barack Obama and his liberal, socialist agenda. It would appear that the imperial president is at it again, as The Daily Caller reports, on Friday issued an executive order titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.” Obama knows that nothing like this would ever pass through Congress, so instead the Obamamessiah looks to devastate, regulate and control the economy even more through executive fiat. As if Obama has not done enough to destroy jobs, put record number of people on food stamps, destroy the coal industry, devastate the economy with Obamacare and now this? He will not be happy until he turns the United States on its head into something that you do not even recognize.
This is what you get from a community agitator, an individual that says the hell with the US Constitution and looks to just force his agenda without consent of the will of the people. Folks, this is what tyranny looks like. Obama is proving to be nothing more than a menace.
Brought to you by the president who delivered “cash for clunkers,” the “billion dollar “stimulus” plan, promises of a job recovery and Obamacare that has caused more Americans to lose their insurance than enroll in it.
President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property.
Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween.
The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.”
The new order was issued even though recent scientific data have contradicted claims that use of carbon energy — such as gasoline — will drive up the world’s temperature and induce damaging climate change. Average temperatures have leveled for more than a decade, despite the sharply rising use of carbon energy in China and other countries.
U.S. use of carbon energy has stabilized with increasing market-driven efficiency and tightening regulations. (Read Full story)
Just curious Barack, how is it possible that the Earth has gone through a myriad of climate changes, both cooling and warming, before man ever had any type of impact on the environment?
This is just another federal government grab … when will Americans ever take back their liberty and freedom on which this country was founded?
REMEMBER THIS SCANDAL …
The Washington Examiner is reporting that the IRS broke federal law when it shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission. According to emails obtained by Judicial Watch, former IRS official Lois Lerner, who is presently on paid leave, shared the information with the IRS on conservative Tea Party groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project. As Weasel Zippers opines, remember “It wasn’t long ago when Lerner was telling the House Oversight Committee, ‘I have done nothing wrong.’”
I guess that is true, if you do not consider committing a felony doing something wrong.
Lois Lerner’s statement before Congress just before she plead the 5th, “I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations … “
The emails obtained by Judicial Watch show that the IRS, which was considering the tax status of the groups, gave the FEC the tax returns of the groups, including income, expenditures and staff pay. The emails also revealed the exact working of the prying political questions the IRS wanted the groups to reveal, such as their goals and the requests for brochures and ads.
The information, sent via email, to the FEC came in response to the organization’s questions about whether the IRS had granted tax-exempt status to the Tea Party groups. It is unclear how the information the IRS sent was going to help the FEC, since the IRS hadn’t determined the tax status of the groups yet.
The emails were produced to Judicial Watch last week by the FEC in response to an Aug. 9, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
The email chain began Feb. 3, 2009, when the FEC made it’s request to Lerner.
She emailed back 10 minutes later, and said: “I have sent your email out to some of my staff. Will get back to you as soon as I have heard from them.”
More from the Washington Examiner via Judicial Watch and Lerner’s involvement in IRS-gate:
The revealing email chain obtained by Judicial Watch begins with a February 3, 2009, email from a redacted FEC attorney asking Lerner if the IRS had issued an exemption letter for American Future Fund (AFF). The writer of the letter notes, “When we spoke last July, you told us that the American Future Fund had not received an exemption letter from the IRS.” In the same email, the FEC attorney asked Lerner if she could also advise him if the IRS had granted an exemption letter to American Issues Project (AIP) as well as to AIP’s predecessor organizations, Citizens for the Republic (CFTR) and Avenger, Inc. (AIP).
In her response sent ten minutes later from her irs.gov email address, Lerner indicated that she would require her staff to cooperate fully, saying, “I have sent your email out to some of my staff. Will get back to you as soon as I have heard from them.”
The bulk of the records obtained by Judicial Watch consist of extensive materials from the IRS’ files sent from Lerner to the FEC containing detailed, confidential information about the organizations. These include annual tax returns (Forms 990) and request for exempt recognition forms (Form 1024), Articles of Organization and other corporate documents, and correspondence between the nonprofit organizations and the IRS. Under Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code, it is a felony for an IRS official to disclose either “return information” or “taxpayer return information,” even to another government agency.

How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
While Americans were sleeping, the US debt jumped a record $328 billion in one day on Thursday and now is over $17 trillion. The jump was not a result of new spending, but instead because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures”.
U.S. debt jumped a record $328 billion on Thursday, the first day the federal government was able to borrow money under the deal President Obama and Congress sealed this week.
The debt now equals $17.075 trillion, according to figures the Treasury Department posted online on Friday.
The $328 billion increase shattered the previous high of $238 billion set two years ago.
The giant jump comes because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures” — the federal funds it borrowed from over the last five months as it tried to avoid bumping into the debt ceiling.
The PJ Tatler could not have stated it any better when it comes to the games that only the government is allowed to play.
This robbing Peter to pay Paul nonsense should be banned — especially since neither Peter or Paul have any extra cash anyway. If the feds were a private business, they would have been arrested, tried, and convicted for cooking the books long ago.
Hmm, I guess Barack Obama must have missed the civics class that discussed the three branches of government and that the legislative branch consisted of the US Senate and House of Representatives.
From the Divider in Chief … Yesterday, the imperial president lectured Americans and the GOP stating, “Win an election” if you want change. Really? Talk about your double standards. Like Democrats have never pushed for change and their agenda with a GOP president. Is President Obama unaware that the GOP actually does have control of the House of Representatives? Last time I remembered there was a system of checks and balances withing our Republic to prevent exactly what Obama is espousing. Some one might also want to ask Emperor Obama if the same will be true in the future when the GOP has control of government? Is he saying that the minority party in office has no voice? Hey Barack, remember this little document called the US Constitution? Seriously, this guy is dangerous. This is what tyranny looks like America.
President Barack Obama challenged the GOP to end political brinkmanship and said Republicans should “win an election” if they so badly wish to change his policies.
In his first extended remarks since the government reopened, Obama said that the public has grown “fed up” with its government and urged lawmakers to move past the conflict of the past few weeks.
“To all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change,” he said.
“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election,” The president said. “But don’t break it.
A note to Democrats, be very careful what you ask for or what your Obamamessiah says as you may be on the other end of the stick in the not too distant future and his words are going to come back and haunt you.
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, October 16, 2013 – Ex-San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Pleads Guilty to One Charge of False Imprisonment & Two Counts of Battery
- Disgraced Bob Filner pleaded guilty to charges involving 3 women; one charge of false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery. “Filthy” Filner finally resigned effective August 30, 2013, even though back in July he did not believe he was guilty of any sexual harassment of woman. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Listen to the podcast below.
Under the plea agreement, Filner will not serve any time behind bars but will spend three months in home confinement, give up most of his mayoral pension and promise never to run for office again.
Filner will also undergo treatment as “directed by a mental health professional” during his three years of probation.
Lost Priorities … North Andover High School Punishes Teen Erin Cox for Being Responsible and Giving Drunken Friend a Ride Home From a Party
Honestly, what has happened to the world that I grew up in … ZERO Tolerance has ZERO common sense.
North Andover High School senior, 17 year old Erin Cox has been demoted from being captain of the school’s volleyball team and suspended for 5 games because she did the right thing and went to a party to drive a drunk friend home. That is correct folks, punished because of an ignorant “zero alcohol” policy for actually doing the responsible thing. How is it that we have become a nation that punishes people for doing the right and responsible thing? UNREAL. This is not a trouble making student, in fact she is a model student. I guess the rocket scientists at the school would rather have teenagers drive drunk and harm kill themselves, as well as putting other innocent people in harms way?
Is this the message that we want to be teaching kids? Attorney Wendy Murphy, friend of SM and frequent guest of the Dana Pretzer Show, is representing the teen against the ridiculous policies of the North Andover, MA school. Murphy stated, “If a kid asks for help from a friend, you don’t want that kid to say ‘I’m sorry I can’t help you. I might end up in trouble at school.’” She is 100% correct.
Two weeks ago, Erin received a call from a friend at a party who was too drunk to drive. Erin drove to Boxford after work to pick up her friend. Moments after she arrived, the cops arrived too and busted several kids for underage possession of alcohol.
A North Andover High School honor student, Erin was cleared by police, who agreed she had not been drinking and was not in possession of alcohol. But Andover High told Erin she was in violation of the district’s zero tolerance policy against alcohol and drug use. In the middle of her senior year, Erin was demoted from captain of the volleyball team and told she would be suspended from playing for five games.
From The Daily Caller … We are proud of her as well!!!
According to AHS’s student handbook, student athletes are forbidden from “knowingly being and remaining in the presence of other minors using alcohol or illegal drugs or controlled substances.” Since Cox admittedly attended the party–in order to help her drunk friend–she violated the policy.
But Cox’s mother says she did the right thing, regardless of district policy.
“She didn’t do anything wrong,” said Eleanor Cox. “She did what she thought was right, and I’m very proud of her.”
NSA Collecting Hundreds of Millions of Contact Lists from Personal E-mail & IM Accounts, Including Americans
The government may be shut down, but the NSA is not …
Nothing is off limits to the NSA and so much for anything personal privacy. According to the NSA and their collection techniques, we are guilty until proven innocent. According to the WAPO, “Each day, the presentation said, the NSA collects contacts from an estimated 500,000 buddy lists on live-chat services as well as from the inbox displays of Web-based e-mail accounts.” But don’t worry, President Barack Obama previously stated that the NSA’s email collecting program “does not apply to U.S. citizens.” Of course this is the same individual who says that the Obamacare website is a success, it is just “glitchy”.
The National Security Agency is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world, many of them belonging to Americans, according to senior intelligence officials and top-secret documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
The collection program, which has not been disclosed before, intercepts e-mail address books and “buddy lists” from instant messaging services as they move across global data links. Online services often transmit those contacts when a user logs on, composes a message, or synchronizes a computer or mobile device with information stored on remote servers.
Rather than targeting individual users, the NSA is gathering contact lists in large numbers that amount to a sizable fraction of the world’s e-mail and instant messaging accounts. Analysis of that data enables the agency to search for hidden connections and to map relationships within a much smaller universe of foreign intelligence targets.
During a single day last year, the NSA’s Special Source Operations branch collected 444,743 e-mail address books from Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from Gmail and 22,881 from unspecified other providers, according to an internal NSA PowerPoint presentation. Those figures, described as a typical daily intake in the document, correspond to a rate of more than 250?million a year.
From The Hill … Maybe some one might want to define and quantify what “required to minimize the ‘acquisition, use and dissemination’ of contacts of U.S. citizens” is!
Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said the program is aimed at “valid foreign intelligence targets,” including terrorists, drug smugglers and human traffickers. He added that the NSA is required to minimize the “acquisition, use and dissemination” of contacts of U.S. citizens.
But of course because of media bias, we hear really nothing of this invasion of privacy. However, as the Lonely Conservative states, image if a Republican was in the White House?
Take a good look at what peaceful disobedience looks like …
Memorials and monuments belong to the American people and any government that would barricade an open air, outside memorial is nothing more than an act of tyranny. From KLTV, watch patriots rip through the tape, move the barriers and take back what belongs to “We the People” as they walk up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and celebrate.
