Exclusive: Feds are building a
detective squad to target consumers
and companies that don´t
follow Obamacare´s rules

Daily Mail (UK), by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 8/22/2013 5:55:21 AM

More than 1,600 new employees hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources in the aftermath of Obamacare´s passage include just two described as ´consumer safety´ officers, but 86 tasked with ´criminal investigating´ – indicating that the agency is building an army of detectives to sleuth out violations of a law that many in Congress who supported it still find confusing. On the day President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, HHS received authority from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to make as many as 1,814 new hires under an emergency ´Direct Hiring

Comments:
These "Obamacare police" must be in addition to the 15,000 other enforcers of this law. So how does it feel to be living in a police state?

They can start by investigating the criminal in the WH that has already broken the law by allowing subsidies for Congress and their staff and delaying implementation for others.

obama promised to "make government cool again." Apparently, he defines "cool" as selective enforcement of laws, political persecution of conservatives, confiscation of individual liberties, and constant spying on citizens five different ways. The list is much too long to cite all the abuses of power in one post.

Please explain how the President can issue waivers to certain groups of Americans while the rest of us are forced into a government plan. Is this not a blatant example of discrimination? The law must apply to all of us, or apply to none. The president can´t pick and choose who is exempt. It is either all or none.

I re-registered for the Do Not Call list... now it says it won´t be active until next quarter... great.

Let´s not let Congress off the hook. Someone is appropriating the money to pay for all this. Boehner whines he only controls one-half of one-third of the government...he forgets it´s the font of all money. Republicans talk a good game - they haven´t played one for decades.

Once again, I am not surprised. Obie said during the 2008 campaign that one of his goals was to organize a civilian police force whose mission it would be to monitor the citizenry.....but,thanks to the lo fos and those who sat out 2008, then is now.

And all the while McConnell and Boehner cower in the corner terrified of calling out Zero. Terrified of doing the right thing. Terrified of just about everything.

All the rest of the weaklings we call Republicans, too. All terrified of losing their checks and their perks. Except for a few, a few who are vilified by their fellow Republicans.

Why be worried about this?
By the time the Office of Managment and personnel actually gets around to filling these positions, it will be with barely literate products inner city public schools, affirmative action hires, quota hires, no-show crony hires, and layabouts.
This is just another Jobs Corps payoff, intended to expand the federal government´s reach and the number of federal employees.

Detectives? Hah! They won´t be able to find their butts with both hands.

And the Republicans are worried that people will be mad at them for doing their constitutonal duty and defunding this monster that most of us don´t want. What courage /s.

We´re paying for this if we still have jobs that is, some of us will be denied care because of this, some of us will die because of this and our last hope is a bunch of chicken RINOS.

This is no longer a free country thanks largely to one word everyone is afraid of: racist.

Obama gives wavers to his friends and swivel chair servants and sends more enforcers after the rest of us. This is an offence against the principle of equal protection of the law for all citizens.

How many armies, private so-called elite gun carrying gestapo, SS, Nazi, Soviet, mobs will Josef Obamaovitz put into place before the revolution starts? Homeland security has all the millions of ammo, NSA excludes investigating mosques only, IRS targets tea party free speakers, FEMA death camps, IRS sits with you and your doctor, these newly announced high school dropout, side armed detective thugs can accuse you of violating an unconstitutional law you want no part of. Meantime, Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, our communist news actors, exempted from all this trash, continue to censor and lie, sponsored by lobbied products you foolishly continue to buy, all backed up by the traitors Boehner, Cantor, Mitch, Rubio, and the most frightening turncoat of them all, Indian lobbyist, red John Commie McCain. Mitch, an endless list of old timers too corrupt to stop any crime committed right in their faces. NONE OF THIS COULD EVER HAPPEN WITH A WATCH DOG MAINSTREAM PRESS. Our press/media is Nazi/commie corrupted with the exception of a few radio heroes and journalists, internet geniuses, and even a few on Fox. The rest, ALL of the Sawyers/Boners/McCains are down the drain for freedom. Time for deja vu, to catch up, read all about the tyrannies of Hitler and Stalin. Hitler had idylic Berchtesgarden. Obama has no photos golf.

Every Federal Agency now has Police Powers and it´s own LEO´s to enforce them.

In effect every citizen is in violation of some obscure statute of which they are unaware.

Property and wealth confiscation will come first, then arrests and confinement for those who loudly protest.

I can´t say it often enough. Buy more ammo. Find others that believe as you do and find those who are capable leaders and do not fear the "govmint" and start the next revolution. And remember, the original revolution was supported by only about 40% of the population. The others backed the Crown or just didn´t care one way or the other. I´m ready. Are you?

# 38: "In effect every citizen is in violation of some obscure statute of which they are unaware."

“Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against—then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it.

You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.

Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there it that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of lawbreakers—and then you cash in on it.

Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

To continue on the theme #42 brought to our attention, and major dittoes for #39, it is way past time for thinking patriots to have charted their path of noncompliance. The governing elites have broken the social contract and there are a scant few in congress to mount any type of defense for our beloved Constitution. Therefore we must rethink our role as citizens. Our duties can no longer remain the same as when we were a free people with responsive representation. To continue signing petitions, writing letters, sending faxes, making phone calls is a massive waste of personal time, energy and focus. It plays into their game by distracting you from living your life. They are already controlling you.

Our Constitution only codified our God given, inalienable, individual rights. It is up to us to defend them; not Boehner, McConnell, or even Ted Cruz. You and I are the ultimate and final defense of the Constitution. We do that every day in our own personal pursuit of happiness while conducting ourselves as honorable people, and we will do that in the full knowledge that we live in a time and place in history when doing so will bring us into conflict with ruling authorities.

Be smart. Know your enemy. It will be a bureaucrat of the type eloquently described by #19. When new federal/state policies are passed down to the local level for implementation, it is usually poorly planned, chaotic and ineffectual. Ignore their letters, deadlines, and requirements for self-reporting. Make it tough on the local paper-pusher and you’ll get permanent status at the bottom of the in-box. Do not self-identify, do not comply, resist and live free. “Be not afraid.”

That´s 1 special cop to each 200,000 people in the country.

Actually, they won´t be very helpful.

Almost any police force anywhere of any size depends to a great deal on the people within their jurisdiction to care about what´s going on. Then, too, they need many years in existence, and it´s desirable they all be very much team players.

So, you got 1 cop and he´s going to do what to 200,000 people owning about 250,000 firearms.

Not to laugh, but this is actually fewer than the number of Postal Inspectors, and they spend the greater part of their time inside government owned buildings ~ or on detail to DEA to work on special jump out teams.

Postal Inspectors also know what they are doing and the general public agrees they ought to be doing what they are doing.

That´s not the case with this new special bunch of federales.

I suspect most of them will stay in the office all the time.

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Muslim Cleric Urges Homeless

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

Lopez previously served in the Army National Guard in Puerto Rico and did one four-month tour of duty in Iraq occurred in 2011. He was not wounded in action while serving overseas, but self-reported a traumatic brain injury upon his return to the U.S.

Ezekiel Emmanuel´s Reaper Curve

Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

It was a turning point in my life. Some people remember where they were when Kennedy was killed or Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I remember where I was the day Terri Schiavo died. I was crying in a bathroom stall at work, wondering what kind of merciless country I lived in. It was nine years ago this month. Looking back at the appeals and legislation surrounding the Terri Schiavo case makes my head spin. At the time, my family and I followed every twist, every turn, and every detail of her family’s struggle to keep her alive. Frankly I’d rather not look back. It only reminds of how messed up our laws were, and how much farther we’ve

A lawless and politically transparent Obama administration just became more so on both counts. The “imminent” decision to implement yet another delay of ObamaCare, reported by The Hill on Tuesday, became reality Wednesday. Americans who have plans that don’t comply with the ObamaCare mandates can keep them through October 2017, provided that their states allow it, according to the latest fixes. In addition, next year’s open enrollment period was extended by a month, and insurers will get additional financial help to offset the costs of claims made by new ObamaCare enrollees.

It´ll be a bit easier for Speaker John Boehner to get that famous tan now that he has a place in Florida. The Ohio Republican just bought a condo in tony Marco Island, FL, known for its tropical climate and white sand beaches. "This area of Florida has been the Boehners´ family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo. Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be,” Michael Steel, Boehner´s spokesman said.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is contracted to purchase 704,390,250 rounds of ammunition over the next four years, which is equal to a total of about 2,500 rounds per DHS agent, according to a January 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report entitled Ammunition Purchases Have Declined Since 2009. “If DHS were to purchase all 704 million rounds over the next four years, and if they were used by 70,000 DHS agents and officers, it would be roughly 2,500 rounds per agent per year,” David Maurer, author of the GAO report, told CNSNews.com.

The Seattle Seahawks have revealed that a good part of their defensive strategy at the Super Bowl came from the fact that they were able to decode Peyton Manning´s hand signals on the field. Controversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play. ´We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
