Teacher Stabbed by Man Claiming to be Associated with ISIS in Aubervilliers, France … Jihadist Stated, ‘This is a Warning, This is Only the Beginning’ (Update: Hoax, Teacher Made Up Story)
A teacher was attacked by a man claiming to be associated with ISIS on Monday at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. The 45 year old male victim was alone in his classroom at the kindergarten in the northern suburb of Aubervilliers, when the assailant burst in at around 7.30am local time. The injuries are reported to be non-life threatening. The attacker was wearing overalls and a balaclava, fled the scene and is currently being hunted by police. The investigation is being led by anti-terror officers. Previously, jihadists have also made specific threats against teachers in France, claiming they were “enemies of Allah” and that schools cultivated “ignorance and moral corruption” in children. According to a statement from Bobigny district prosecutor’s office, the attacker said, “This is a warning, this is only the beginning.”
A teacher was attacked and injured in a Paris suburb Monday by a man claiming to be associated with the ISIS terror group, French police said.
Sky News reported that the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident, which is being investigated by anti-terror police.
The Agence France-Presse news agency reported that the teacher was stabbed in the side and the throat while preparing for class at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. Sky reported that the assailant, who remained at large, was carrying a knife and a pair of scissors.
AFP, citing a witness who works at the school, reported that the suspect was dressed in painter’s overalls, gloves and a ski mask. He arrived in the classroom without a weapon, but grabbed one that was lying around in the classroom. According to the witness, the attacker said, “This is Daesh. This is a warning.” Daesh is the Arabic acronym for ISIS
Turns out this idiot made up the entire story so that he could have himself transferred. Where, to a mental institution?
The French authorities said on Monday that a teacher who claimed to have been stabbed with scissors and a box cutter at a preschool near Paris had fabricated the story.
A police official in Aubervilliers confirmed that the teacher, who has not been identified, admitted to having invented the assault by a supporter of the Islamic State at the Jean Perrin preschool in Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris.
It “was a fake attempt, done so that he could have himself transferred” to another job, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to reporters about the episode.
A spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, Agnès Thibault-Lecuivre, said, “He wounded himself alone in his classroom, before the children arrived,” in what she called the first such instance in France. She said the preschool teacher, 45, was in the hospital for his wounds, which were not life-threatening, and was being questioned further.
Damn, To Bad This Story was a Hoax … Mexican Drug Lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Declars War on ISIS … “You [ISIS] Are Not Soldiers. You Are Nothing But Lowly P*ssies”
El Chapo declares war on ISIS after they interfere with his business …
It would appear that the Mexican Drug Lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has declared war on ISIS before the United States of America has. Accord to accounts, El Chapo is none to please with ISIS who seem to have been interfering with his business and have impacted shipments. In an email El Chapo stated, “You [ISIS] are not soldiers. You are nothing but lowly p*ssies. And then went on to say, “I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.” Maybe the El Chapo drug cartel should be tasked to fighting ISIS instead of Obama?
“You [ISIS] are not soldiers. You are nothing but lowly p*ssies. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”
“My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a wh*re that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”
Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has a lot of enemies: the Mexican government, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Donald Trump.
But now the world’s most powerful drug trafficker allegedly is taking on what is arguably the world’s most feared organization, ISIS.
In an unconfirmed report, Chapo’s anger toward the radical jihadist group does not stem from some sense of altruism for the victims of the recent attacks in Paris or San Bernardino, but instead from concerns about his bottom line after ISIS destroyed several of his Sinaloa Cartel’s drug shipments that were being moved through the Middle East.
Guzmán allegedly sent a harshly-worded warning via email to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, which was published by the website Cartel Blog, about messing with the cartel’s business.
“You [ISIS] are not soldiers,” Guzmán purportedly wrote. “You are nothing but lowly p**. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”
14 Year Old Ahmed Mohamed Who Was Arrested for Bringing What Looked Like a Bomb to School Visits War Criminal Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE … CLOCKMED MOHAMED MEETS WITH WAR CRIMINAL SUDAN PRESIDENT …
This might be a head scratcher and something the US Secret Service might want to take notice of ahead of Clockmed’s visit to the White House. It would appear that Ahmed Mohamed is visiting Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in Khartoum. The Sudanese president has been charged with war crimes. But of course that makes no difference to the LEFT, Clockmed is a celebrity to them. However, there was no racism and Islamophobia when 14 year old Ahmed Mohamed was arrested in Texas for bringing what any average, normal person and even uber-libs perceived to be a bomb to school. That is of course unless you are the liberal MSM for the divisive always looking for a way to divide America, Barack Hussein Obama. Why didn’t Obama invite all the other school children who were handcuffed and suspended from school who brought what looked like guns to school when some where in fact a pop tart? Who is the bias racist with an agenda?
Why does this entire thing look like one big attention seeking hoax?
The arrest of Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old Texas student, in mid-September for bringing a homemade clock to his high school created a nationwide debate about racism and Islamophobia in the United States. Despite facing a wave of ugly criticism, Ahmed won support from high places — President Obama tweeted his support, and the teenager is expected to be a guest at the White House this weekend.
Ahead of that that visit, Ahmed has met with another president. This meeting is a little bit more surprising.
According to the Sudan Tribune, Ahmed met with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in Khartoum on Wednesday evening. The Paris-based Web site reports that the teenager told reporters that he was “extremely delighted” to meet Bashir and hoped to return to visit the Sudanese president again “with a new invention and success.”
At first glance, perhaps Ahmed’s journey to Bashir’s presidential compound isn’t so strange. The teenager has met with a variety of big names over the past few weeks. Besides, his family are Sudanese immigrants: On his Twitter account, Ahmed posted a number of images that described his visit to Sudan as a type of homecoming:
Dominique Sharpton, Al Sharpton’s Daughter Sues New York City for $5M after Spraining Ankle (Update: Pics of Dominique Sharpton Hiking Mountains)
The apple does not fall far from the shake down tree in the Sharpton family … or is it by Shaking the Apple tree, trying to take a bite out of the Big Apple?
28 year old Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton is suing the city of New York for $5 million. Dominique Sharpton is claiming she fell in the street, sprained her ankle and severely injured and bruised her ankle because of uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown. Good grief. It would appear that Dominique has learned from the master of shakedown. According to her lawsuit, she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.” Dominique Sharpton claims she fell in a crosswalk, which would make hers a “defective roadway” claim. However, in December Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach. And even with the claims of “permanent physical pain, there are pics on social-media of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree. Yup, she has learned well from the Shakedown master.
My Monkey senses make me say the following …
Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle, court records show.
Dominique Sharpton, 28, says she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown last year, according to a lawsuit.
Currently on vacation in Bali, the membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.
She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.
And despite claiming “permanent physical pain” in a breathless notice of claim, there are social-media shots of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.
Hmm, isn’t that called fraud if you claim one thing and it is a knowing false claim?
From Weasel Zippers comes the screen shot of Sharpton’s daughter, who is currently of vacation in Bali hiking up mountains. How many Americans in this terrible economy can afford to take a vacation to Bali? Oh but wait, I thought she claimed permanent physical pain? So sharpton’s daughter is looking to ceat the NYC tax payers out of money with a trunped up claim that she injured herself as she
Oh wait, here is another picture from Dominique Sharpton’s Instagram site showing her hiking in Red Rock canyon about a month ago. Because everyone knows that some one with a severe and permanent damage to their ankle can hike there. Of course I guess it is just a coincidence that her daddy Sharpton owes $4.5 million in back taxes.
NYC should sue her for fraud.
It not only adds up to no case, it amounts to fraud.
Dominique Sharpton posted pictures to Instagram showing she completed a difficult mountain climb in Bali, Indonesia — even though her suit says that “she still suffers” debilitating pain after twisting her ankle in a street crack in Soho last year.
She didn’t seem to realize that her mountaineering exploits might undermine her legal claims as she bragged online about the difficulty of her ascent.
What legal experts saw as truly unreal, however, is the younger Sharpton’s brazen boasting after she claimed in court papers that she was in “permanent physical pain.”
“It is starting to look like Tawana Brawley is orchestrating the Sharpton trial strategy,” quipped CNN legal analyst Paul Callan. “It graphically demonstrates bad judgment and good feet. It all adds up to no case.”
Sabrina Rubin Erdely, Author of Rolling Stone Magazine Article on University of Virginia Rape Offers Apology for False Story to all but the Fraternity
HEY SABRINA, YOU MISSED SOME ONE IN YOUR APOLOGY FOR FALSE RAPE STORY …
Rolling Stone magazine is in full retreat on their now completely discredited University of Virginia rape story where the so-called rape victim, Jackie, was assaulted at a UVA fraternity. The author of the article, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, is now offering an apology and Rolling Stone is asking what went wrong. Hmm, you mean besides everything? Rolling Stone has officially retracted the article, ‘A Rape on Campus,’ as nothing can ce corroborated; however, has the damage already been done? Sabrina Rubin Erdely offered an apology saying, “I want to offer my deepest apologies: to Rolling Stone’s readers, to my Rolling Stone editors and colleagues, to the U.V.A. community, and to any victims of sexual assault who may feel fearful as a result of my article.” Um, and I can’t actually believe I am saying this as I have no love for the fraternity system, but where is Rolling Stone’s apology to the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity where the faux rape occurred? Could it be because the fraternity will most likely sue Rolling Stone for libel?
Rape is a terrible crime unto itself and affects a victim for the rest of their life. But to report such a sensational, false story like this and not have any journalistic integrity, no fact checking, no nothing what so ever, is a crime itself.
Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the author of a now-discredited article in Rolling Stone magazine about a rape at a University of Virginia fraternity, issued this statement:
“The past few months, since my Rolling Stone article “A Rape on Campus” was first called into question, have been among the most painful of my life. Reading the Columbia account of the mistakes and misjudgments in my reporting was a brutal and humbling experience. I want to offer my deepest apologies: to Rolling Stone’s readers, to my Rolling Stone editors and colleagues, to the U.V.A. community, and to any victims of sexual assault who may feel fearful as a result of my article.
“Over my 20 years of working as an investigative journalist — including at Rolling Stone, a magazine I grew up loving and am honored to work for — I have often dealt with sensitive topics and sources. In writing each of these stories I must weigh my compassion against my journalistic duty to find the truth. However, in the case of Jackie and her account of her traumatic rape, I did not go far enough to verify her story. I allowed my concern for Jackie’s well-being, my fear of re-traumatizing her, and my confidence in her credibility to take the place of more questioning and more facts. These are mistakes I will not make again.
There seems to be more missing from the Rolling Stone mea culpa on this false rape article that they published, who is being held responsible for such a miscarriage of journalism? Who got suspended, who got fired … no one. So how are we to believe this will never happen again at Rolling Stone, because they said so? Sorry folks, but as private investigators Sam Spade, Humphrey Bogart, said in The Maltese Falcon, some one must take the fall.
So, there was a massive “failure of journalism” here, but none of the journalists who failed so massively will lose their jobs, and none of the journalistic practices that led to this failure will change.
Somehow, this is so America 2015. Leaders “take full responsibility” for failure, but rarely seem to pay a price for it. As we tell our children, “‘Sorry’ is not a magic word.” That is, it’s great to say “I’m sorry” when you’ve done wrong, but saying the word does not erase the consequences of the deed. You have to show by your actions that you mean it.
The editors who handled that UVA story will remain in place. Unbelievably, even the writer who wrote the catastrophic lies will not suffer any professional penalty at the magazine.
Police Say that Kidnapping of 29 Year Old Denise Huskins in Vallejo, CA Appears to be Hoax … Charges Possible Against Huskins and Quinn
THE REPORTED KIDNAPPING OF DENISE HUSKINS WAS A HOAX …
29 year old Denise Huskins was reported kidnapped on Monday, March 23, 2015. Her boy friend Aaron Quinn made the report to police many hours after the so-called crime, which would raise red flags. Between the delay in the reporting and the accounts of the kidnapping, it did seem a bit sketchy when first presented. As it turns out, the kidnapping was a HOAX. The Vallejo police have stated that the investigation into the reported kidnapping of a woman found Wednesday in Huntington Beach was a “wild goose chase”. Lt. Kenny Park, of the Vallejo Police Department. stated, if Huskins or her boyfriend committed any criminal act in the false story, they will seek federal charges against them.
Kidnapping Of Denise Huskins Ruled A Hoax, Criminal Charges Are Possible
A reported kidnapping for ransom that set off a frantic search for a Vallejo woman who surfaced Wednesday morning in Southern California appears to have been faked, and criminal charges against the “victim” and her boyfriend are possible, police said late Wednesday.
Now, Vallejo detectives say they are looking for 29-year-old Denise Huskins, who has hired an attorney and is hiding in an unknown location and refusing to meet with Vallejo police, according to Lt. Kenny Park. Huskins and her boyfriend, Aaron Quinn, demanded $8,500 in a ransom communication, police said Wednesday night. Huskins’ father had not communicated with police since Wednesday morning, Park said.
“Mr. Quinn and Ms. Huskins have plundered valuable resources away from our community,” Park said at a news conference. “If anything, it is Mr. Quinn and Ms. Huskins who owe our community an apology.”
Quinn was not in custody Wednesday evening, Park said. It was not clear if police knew his location.
Vallejo police reported Wednesday night that this “appears to be an orchestrated event and not a kidnapping.” They issued a statement saying, “Today, there is no evidence to support the claims that this was a stranger abduction or an abduction at all.”
Huskins, 29, was unharmed and spoke with Huntington Beach Police before moving to an undisclosed location in Southern California. Tuesday, Huskins’ boyfriend reported that she was kidnapped from his home in Vallejo, and an email and audiotape purporting to be from her kidnappers was sent to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The disappearance had many unanswered questions: How did she make it from Vallejo to Orange County? Why did her boyfriend wait 12 hours before calling police to report her missing? How and why did the kidnappers set her free?
Huntington Beach police would not provide any of those answers, as their investigation continued. Public Information Officer Jennifer Marlatt confirmed Huskins was safe and that she was making arrangements to talk with Vallejo police.
As the day went on, however, Vallejo police said that those arrangements broke off and that they lost track of Huskins and that she’s now got a lawyer.
Vallejo police said at a Wednesday news conference the FBI is involved.
Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy J. Longo Says They Found No Evidence in UVA Sexual Assault Case Reported in Rolling Stone
CHIEF OF POLICE SAYS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT SEXUAL ASSAULT AS REPORTED IN ROLLING STONE …
Police Chief Timothy J. Longo said in a press conference Monday afternoon that they have found no evidence to support claims in a Rolling Stone article that a University of Virginia student (Jackie) was gang raped at Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, in September 2012, after months of investigation. It is a sad state of journalistic integrity and malpractice that Rolling Stone tried to passed this story off as the truth and a sexual assault of a student turned out to be nothing more than a work of fiction.
“We’re not able to conclude to any substantive degree that an incident occurred at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, for that matter,” Longo said at a news conference. “That doesn’t mean something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie … we’re just not able to gather sufficient facts to determine what that is.”
Police here say they have found no evidence to support claims in a Rolling Stone article that a University of Virginia student was gang raped at a campus fraternity in September 2012, noting that months of investigation led detectives to discredit several claims about the alleged assault.
Police Chief Timothy J. Longo on Monday afternoon said the police department had multiple meetings with “Jackie” — the woman who claimed she was gang raped at a fraternity party — and that she declined to speak about the alleged incident or provide any information about it. Numerous lines of inquiry yielded evidence that the fraternity did not have a party the night of the alleged attack, and police were unable to find anyone matching the description of the alleged attacker.
“We’re not able to conclude to any substantive degree that an incident occurred at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, for that matter,” Longo said at a news conference. “That doesn’t mean something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie … we’re just not able to gather sufficient facts to determine what that is.”
WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD … Hillary Clinton Lied Too About Taking Sniper Fire … Do We Hold News Anchors to a Higher Standard Than a Presidential Wannabe?
HOW GREAT IS THE BELOW VIDEO … NBC’S LYIN’ BRIAN WILLIAMS COVERING A NEWS STORY ABOUT LIAR HILLARY CLINTON AND HER BOSNIA “SNIPER FIRE” LIE …
Can you say double standard? How is it that we hold a news anchor to a higher standard than that of a presidential wannabe? The below VIDEO is a classic and should have already been made into a 2016 political ad to run against Hillary Clinton. Remember when Hillary Clinton lied about being caught in “sniper fire in 1995″ during her 2008 presidential campaign when she got off a plane in Bosnia? But it gets even worse for Hillary Clinton, her own bubby, Bubba Clinton blamed her Bosnia mistake on age and fatigue. OUCH! Bill Clinton said back in 2008, “some of them [women] will forget something when their tired at 11 o’ clock at night.” I wonder how former President Bill Clinton feels about that same comment in 2015, seven years later?
Even though coverage of the Clinton fib was dying down, Clinton spoke in defense of his wife, bringing back up the subject multiple times on the campaign trail. He said that his wife’s age might have played a part in the error while as she fought Barack Obama, a much younger and more energetic opponent in.
We are still waiting for the MSM to call Hillary Clinton out and go after her lie in the same manner that they did with Brian Williams. And we are still waiting. I know, I know … “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE.”
Sharyl Attkisson: Why Did Hillary Survive a Brian Williams-like Tale?
Emmy Award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who covered the story of Hillary Clinton’s lie about being shot at in Bosnia, says she can’t understand how the former secretary of state weathered the scandal while NBC News anchor Brian Williams may not.
“To me, part of the irony is if Brian Williams isn’t able to survive it — that we think it’s important enough when somebody gives this kind of story that he would lose his career — yet we didn’t care enough to have it matter that much with someone who became our secretary of state,” Attkisson said Monday on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
“[A person] we relied on for honest answers and truths in the aftermath of Benghazi and so on.”
Sorry Hillary, no one, no one would ever misremember being shot at by a sniper …
Video shows tarmac welcome, no snipers. … Poilitifact rules Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit on fire.
How is it that we would hold NBC new anchor Brian Williams to a higher standard? Seriously, does one who aspires to the the President of the United States get a free pass because she is Hillary Clinton even though she has pretty much claimed the same lie as Brian Williams? Where is the MSM clamoring for her head?
During an introduction to a foreign policy speech on Iraq on March 17, 2008, Sen. Hillary Clinton reminisced about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she made in March 1996.
“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
But that’s not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton’s comments, reporting that a review of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats to the First Lady.
CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who covered Clinton on the Bosnia visit, wrote of her memories of the trip : “To be sure, it was not the ‘safest’ trip for a first lady to take: there were serious risks in traveling to Bosnia, even for the president’s wife under the vigilant protection of the U.S. military. It took some guts for her to go. But I don’t recall, and did not note, any close calls on this trip with sniper fire or any other dangers. “
Immediately after the speech that day, a reporter asked Clinton about remarks from others on the trip who suggested the trip was for photo opportunities rather than foreign policy and she stood by her account of sniper fire. “There was no greeting ceremony, and we basically were told to run to our cars. Now, that is what happened,” she said.
But she retracted the remarks a week later, telling the Philadelphia Daily News editorial board on March 24, 2008, that she “misspoke,” correcting herself to say she had been told there was a threat of sniper fire in the area. The next day she told reporters, “So I made a mistake. That happens. It shows I’m human, which for some people is a revelation.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) Says Dems Screwed Up Passing Obamacare … “Democrats Blew the Opportunity the American People Gave Them” in 2008 and “Put All of Our Focus on the Wrong Problem”
ISN’T THIS INTERESTING, DEMOCRAT CHUCKY SCHUMER SAYS THAT DEMOCRATS SCREWED UP PASSING OBAMACARE …
Speaking Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, New York Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer had an epiphany and stated that “Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them” after the 2008 election. Schumer went on to say that, “We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem, health care reform.” Gee, ya think? Sen. Schumer was one of the 60 Democrat senators who passed Obamacare, with not one GOP vote, and forced the unpopular law down the throats of Americans. Now suddenly because as we predicted back then, it would be their undoing, Schumer has misgivings that Democrats focused on it first and did not focus on what Americans were dealing with on a day to day basis, a poor economy and unemployment. Schumer told those in attendance “that considering 85% of all Americans got their health care from either the government, Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer … we would still only be talking about only 5% of the electorate.” Wasn’t that the same argument that those opposed to Obamacare were making in 2009? Why blow up the healthcare system in the United States for only 5% of the people? This is a kin to demolishing a house because the back porch needs repair. Not only did Democrats not listen to the people, the law they forced upon them was nothing more than a lie.
Democrats made a strategic mistake by passing the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third-ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, said Tuesday.
Schumer says Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in the 2008 elections, a Democratic landslide, by focusing on healthcare reform instead of legislation to boost the middle class.
But why is Sen. Schumer talking about the Democrats disastrous decision to pass Obamacare now, is it because they have buyer’s remorse and care about the American people? Not at all, it is because they have taken a political shellacking in 2010 and 2014 and now find themselves in the minority in the House and the Senate. It all has to do with power, not the people. Honestly, who in their right mind thought that an unpopular bill that adversely affected so many people to only benefit a few would not have ramifications? If Democrats could not see that, then they deserve what they got.
SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus. But unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem — health care reform. Now the plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed, but it was not the change we were hired to make. Americans were crying out for the end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs, not changes in health care.
This makes sense, considering 85% of all Americans got their health care from either the government, Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer. And if health care costs were going up, it really did not affect them. The Affordable Care Act was aimed at the 36 million Americans who were not covered. It has been reported that only a third of the uninsured are even registered to vote. In 2010 only about 40% of those registered voting. So even if the uninsured kept with the rate, which they likely did not, we would still only be talking about only 5% of the electorate.
To aim a huge change in mandate at such a small percentage of the electorate made no political sense. So when Democrats focused on health care, the average middle-class person thought the Democrats are not paying enough attention to me. Again, our health care system was riddled with unfairness and inefficiency. It was a problem desperately in need of fixing. The changes that were made are and will continue to be positive changes, but we would have been better able to address it if Democrats had first proposed and passed bold programs aimed at a broader swath of the middle class.
Had we started more broadly, the middle class would have been more receptive to the idea that President Obama wanted to help them. The initial faith they placed in him would have been rewarded. They would have held a more pro-government view and would have given him the permission structure to build a more pro-government coalition. Then Democrats would have been in a better position to tackle our nation’s healthcare crisis.
Healthcare, it wasn’t at the top of the agenda for middle class people …
“We should have done it, we just should not have done it first”. People were hurting and said, what about me, I am losing my job. It’s not health care that is bothering me.”
EXIT QUESTION: So why is Sen. Charles Schumer making these comments about Obamacare? Maybe because Schumer does not want to be the next on the list of 29 Democrat Senators who are no longer in the US Senate who voted for Obamacare.
GRUBERGATE:The Liar in Chief President Obama Says Regarding Gruber’s Remarks, “No, We Did Not Mislead to Get Obamacare Passed”
GRUBERGATE … THE GREAT OBAMACARE HOAX, LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES.
Yesterday in Brisbain, Australia Barack Obama finally was asked the question, did you misled the American people with regards to Obamacare. Wouldn’t it have been amazing id he said, YES, you caught me. But, in typical Obama fashion, he denied the allegation and then went off on a tangent explaining away the accusation and never really providing any valid facts to support his denial. All you have done in your six years in office is mislead the American people. President Obama, you have already lied about you can keep your insurance plan and doctor, if you like them … why wouldn’t we think you lied about everything else to pass Obamacare?
Ed Henry – Fox News: At you Burma town hall a couple of days ago you tried to inspire young leaders by saying governments need to be held accountable and be responsive to the people. I wonder how you square that with your former adviser Jonathan Gruber claiming that you were not transparent about the health law, because in his words, ‘the American people, the voters, were stupid’ (VIDEO). Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan, to get the bill passed?
Barack Obama: No. I did not. I just heard about this. I get well briefed before I come out here. The fact that some adviser, who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion, that I completely disagree with, in terms of the voters, is no reflection of the process that was run. We had a year long debate Ed. Go back and look at your stories. The one thing we cannot say is that we did not have a lengthy about health care in the United States of America. Or that it was not adequately covered. I would just advise every press outlet here to go back and pull up every clip, every story, and I think it is fair to say that there was not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and fully transparent.
First, Obama just heard about this? You mean he can’t remember one of the many meetings with Jonathan Gruber in the White House? Good grief, Obama is using that tired response of he just learned about the issue from the news? Where have we heard that before, maybe in the following VIDEO.
Second, Just curious, does it make an adviser less credible if he did not work directly on Obama’s staff? There are these people called consultants Barack. Who would actually believe that the architect of Obamacare, also the architect of Romneycare, would actually work directly for the President? This sounds an awful lot like the Cheers episode when Cliff was on Jeopardy answering the final Jeopardy question … “who are three people who have never been in my kitchen.”
Third, read the following quote from Obama, “The fact that some adviser, who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion, that I completely disagree with, in terms of the voters, …” All Obama disagrees with is Gruber’s remark that the American voters are stupid. Obama is not saying that he disagrees with the rest of the misleading comments.
Fourth, Barack Obama claimed that the health care debate was extensive, adequately covered and transparent. Hmm really? So why did Nancy Pelosi famously say, “We Have to Pass Our Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It.”
Fifth, President Obama, do you really want everyone going back and taking a look at every clip and news account? Look what happened so far by those on the right and bloggers.
Sixth, fully transparent? The Obamacare you can keep your plan if you like it was already awarded the 2013 Politifact lie of the Year. It would appear you are looking to win the award two years in a row. As Jonathan Gruber said, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage.”
Seventh, no asked the question whether Obamacare was extensively debated. However, what good is a debate when the premise is based on a lie that is being discussed?
On a completely different lie, check out the 2:20 mark of the Obama VIDEO where miraculously Obama comes up with all of these stats for the Healthcare.gov web site now that it is not crashing all the time. Remember last year when Obama minions were asked for the same type of data and we were told they did not have access to it.
Yeah Mr. President, Obamacare is working … that is why the majority of Americans have not even been affected by it because you delayed it.
