The Silence of the Left
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 11/3/2013 2:02:17 AM

There is widespread fury at the lies which were used to sell ObamaCare, a more than 2,000-page piece of legislation no one read before it was passed, a law opposed by the majority of voters which was crammed down our throats without a single Republican vote. The law essentially was a mishmash blank slate which left it to the administration´s HHS head, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to write as she pleased and the president to -- by Executive order -- pay off with exemptions and special treatment those cronies and rent seekers not already paid off in the legislative and regulatory

Clarice pretty much sums up the week´s 0bamacare tsunami fallout. How the useful idiots in the Administration can keep lying outright and defending it is beyond me. Baghdad Bob would be proud.

Harry Reid took a bill unrelated to healthcare that had passed the house, stripped everything from it and inserted the text of the ObamaCare law, and said it was the same bill as what the house had originally passed, and yet if we have one small aspect of our healthcare policy change, it is not considered to be the same healthcare policy. I smell hypocrisy.

The Obamabots are telling us, "Who do you believe, what we say or your lying eyes." Now more than ever they will do anything in their power to hang on to the narrative. The media will assist them as usual. The biggest threat to the Obamacare lie is the truth. That is what will slay this dragon. Obama purposely lied and the American people know it. If the letters from the insurace providers keep going out, no spin can cover this up. The left will try and ride this out until they have the American people in such a state of fear they will be clamouring for single payer (Medicaid). Once that happens, we are toast. Please tell me the Republicans have a strategy to prevent this. I fear their focus now is on immigration reform. Can someone please stop the party from committing political suicide. Focus like a laser on exposing Obamacare and offer a real viable solution. The left wants to change the subject. Don´t allow it.

Notice that in every Obama scandal, from the IRS to Fast&Furious to Benghazi to the unfathomable waste of the "Stimulus" to the cover-up collusion with the corrupt MSM - no one but no one ever gets fired or even lightly reprimanded for doing the wrong thing. Gee, now why is that, pray tell? One could almost detect a pattern, as if doing Wrong and deceiving the public about it was… the whole point all along?

No one who understands what the Left really is is at all surprised.

And this tells us that all this was not about YOUR HEALTH...this was and IS about the CHANGE from Freedom to Socialism and Communism. But personally, I do not believe Obama is a Communist, I believe part of the Muslim Brotherhood that Obama is USING the Socialist/Communist method in order to gain control over USA to fulfill the Radical Muslim dream of destroying the USA Infidels. And USA voters all voted for this out of their purposeful ignorance. Information is at our fingertips, there is no excuse for ignorance in today´s society. Yet, they are more ignorant now than ever before. But now, here we are...losing everything because they wanted everything. Tragic.

FTA: "I was all for Obamacare," wrote a young woman complaining about a 50 percent rate hike related to the health care law, "until I found out I was paying for it."

Now there is the most perfect self definition of a liberal I have ever seen. You have got to laugh at these morons. They believe in statism as long as someone else is paying the freight.

Right now their health insurance is paid for by their employer. Give them a year and the experience of seeing that they will be subject to the tender mercies of the Exchanges. Then they will be yelling as hard as the rest of us.

This is one of the first times that people actually have to pay for the socialist programs soon after they are implemented. Most other socialist programs have their costs hidden until many years later, like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. by printing money and going into debt.Finally Lib are having to pay almost immediately for their profligacy. This what is should be like with ALL socialist programs.

For instance, do all those not-top-tier media people and not-top-tier university people and not-top-tier corporate people, and not-top-tier attorneys and on and on, just go to the local community center and get another glass of He´ll-Always-Be-Kool-To-Me-Aid?

obamacare is just the beginning of the left marching all Americans into the ownerless wealthless freedomless America that keeps them in power. The lofos don´t think of losing what the government gives them but even they are losing under this reign of theft. The money being printed will become as useless as an obamacare policy. Then will America survive economic collapse. The left still has a lot of private wealth to steal but the sights on that have long ago been set. Taxes , after all justice roberts, are legal. No matter what those taxes take and according to the left they can take all that we have. Silence of the Lambs was about evil desires that needed people to die to fulfill. Perfect name for a column about a system that has the same results.

This Clarice Piece, like her others, is well-researched and flawless:

Valerie, here´s another FACT: As the Administration has known for three years, the insurance companies are forced to change their plans because HHS regulations require that they do so,...

And then the administration has the colossal gall to claim that "there´s nothing in the law requiring people to change their plans with their present company. Talk about Lucy and the football.

...Men and women who until two weeks ago believed they -- not you -- knew which plans best suited their families´ needs.

That´s the mindset of the elitist Left who believe they can better manage your children, your money, your property, your energy usage, your travel habits, your private telephone conversations and your health care.

The chutzpah is puke-inducing.

The Democrats have been blatantly lying to the American people with impunity for decades and have gotten away with it because of their friends in the media. Obamacare is the straw that is breaking their back. I´ve been waiting for years to see this happen and must say, thrilled to see karmic justice play out. The Right has to take control of this issue and run with it and to never let up about the hardship this has caused millions of Americans and not be afraid to point the finger at those who voted for this debacle. Real life stories need to be broadcast everyday, everywhere. The Left may be silent now, but not for long. The Dems will try every trick in the book to change the subject or pile on with more lies. This is what they do. The Right needs to counter them with hard facts and when the Left lies ask them to prove it. As Churchill famously said, "never, never give up." This is how we win 2014 and 2016

Obamacare will go down better with fava beans and a nice chianti.

It is taking longer, but it think Obamacare will eventually go the way of the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act, back in the late 1980´s.

Yup, the Obamacare bill was written very vaguely and that´s what they intended. They are not much for the legislative process anyway unless they have an absolute majority, and even then it is an unnecessary bother.

And per Drudge, a Dem state legislative candidate in Virginia is calling for a law to force doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid.
Today´s Dems are fascists... One of the first things that occurs to them instinctively when things don´t work out according to plan is... COERCION.
Obamacare is all about coercion. And the coercion will continue.

I am very disappointed that the Obamacare debate does not center around Liberty. We attack Obamacare with scary figures and various unworkable features of the law, but fundamentally we should be talking about liberty. Even if the web site worked perfectly and most everyone was getting a pretty good deal with Obamacare, it takes away our freedom in so many ways, and threatens our freedom in innumerable insidious ways still to be discovered.

The Obamacare collectivization will affect the radical left-wingers too. UCLA has thousands of employees and they just received notice that four of their health plans will be cancelled because of the Obamaroberts law. Remember that UCLA is a closed shop, all union. Interestingly, they did not say which four plans will be cancelled. This means that thousands of University of California employees are fearing the consequence of their votes in their own pockets now.

Medicaid, Food Stamps, and Obamaphones for all, this is the Vow that Californians shout from the rooftops!

Clarice Feldman is doing what must be done:
clearly, in detail, outlining the crimes, the lies, listing it to millions, to instill the damage that´s being done. Obamacide is just one of the many offenses being thrown at us all at one time, an avalanche of endless garbage, organizing aliens, intimidating whistleblowers, IRS attacking

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.

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.

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.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and
