Obama denies ‘you can keep it’
videotaped promises

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 11/5/2013 9:31:37 AM

President Barack Obama told his enthusiastic supporters Monday night that he never promised what video recordings show him promising at least 29 times. The videos show Obama promising 300 million Americans that “if you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan, period.” But that’s not what he really said, Obama announced Monday in a speech to about 200 Organizing for Action supporters, gathered at the St. Regis hotel in D.C. “What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” he told Obamacare’s political beneficiaries and contractors. That claim is not

If I tried such an brazenly infantile and insulting deception on my mom she would have smacked my face.
Barry obviously lacked parental discipline during his formative years

FTA:“So the bottom line is, is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody,” he declared, prompting loud applause by supporters eager to ignore his three years of fraudulent statements."

It is almost too late, people better stop worrying about finding Common Ground and start fighting back.

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

0 has NO respect for the majority of the people in this country-- believing that he can make them believe ANY thing ---which he did rather well in 2008 and 2012.
Most humans continue with behavior that rewards their desires--- and 0´s desire for power and control has been well rewarded by an ignorant, gullible voting majority.

Doesn´t Obama remind you of Jon Lovitz on the old SNL whose character piled lie upon lie then, when he ran out of lies, settled on "...yeah, yeah, that´s the ticket." We laughed at Jon.

But, unfortunately for us, there is no end to Obama´s lies and what we are hearing is not the least bit funny.

Time to re read your Orwell about changing the narrative:

"About this time there occurred a strange incident which hardly anyone was able to understand. One night at about twelve o´clock there was a loud crash in the yard, and the animals rushed out of their stalls. It was a moonlit night. At the foot of the end wall of the big barn, where the Seven Commandments were written, there lay a ladder broken in two pieces. Squealer, temporarily stunned, was sprawling beside it, and near at hand there lay a lantern, a paint-brush, and an overturned pot of white paint. The dogs immediately made a ring round Squealer, and escorted him back to the farmhouse as soon as he was able to walk. None of the animals could form any idea as to what this meant, except old Benjamin, who nodded his muzzle with a knowing air, and seemed to understand, but would say nothing.

But a few days later Muriel, reading over the Seven Commandments to herself, noticed that there was yet another of them which the animals had remembered wrong. They had thought the Fifth Commandment was "No animal shall drink alcohol," but there were two words that they had forgotten. Actually the Commandment read: "No animal shall drink alcohol TO EXCESS."

Now Obama is lying about his own lies. Worst part is, his zombie followers will keep on believing him, no matter how many new layers of lies he adds on. Either they believe him, or they admit their own unforgivable stupidity.

The guy is certainly arrogant, I´ll give him that.
Most normal folks, when confronted by uncensored, unedited, live audio/video proof, in which they have made the same promise time after time after time, usually back down.

But oh not our leader!! No, he has to keep up with the stupid and double down yet again.

Obambi is trying to take a page out of the Clinton Playdown book. Tweek the lie and hope it doesn´t matter to people. Clinton´s lie was ´only sex. The fact that he lied to a court and got away with it doesn´t matter. What matters is folks didn’t feel the lie affected them. Obambi doesn’t have that luxury. Obambicare is about money, personal choice (or the limits of choice) and death panels. Women with cancer that can´t see their doctors or get ´affordable´ coverage. People getting cancelations and having no choice (thanks to the ´exchange´). And lack of care or denying access to the best doctors is a defacto Death Panel. These will affect people’s lives and they will not let slide the Obambi lies as they did let slide the Clinton lies.

“If we had allowed these old plans [to continue]… then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure that Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin,” he announced."

So Barry is giving us a head start on financial ruin and not waiting around for the illness.

Obama thinks that many people have a relationship with the truth similar to what the OJ Simpson jury had.

He´s right to some extent, but there are still too many reasonable, rational people in the US for this to fly. He´ll keep spinning away, but won´t escape this self-made trap.

How is the lying so effortless?

Go to the Dreams From My Real Father website, check the photos of President Obama side-by side with his real father, self-proclaimed communist Frank Marshall Davis, and side-by-side with his dupe father, Obama Sr.

If a person is willing to lie about his conception and birth circumstances, he can and will lie effortlessly about EVERYTHING ELSE.

Spread the website photos far and wide. Please.

Thanks to above posters for the Ayn Rand and George Orwell quotes. These illustrate that the truth is defined the same in any era as are lies and tyranny. Obama hasn´t invented anything new here.

We must accept the fact that we are not dealing with a rational human being and must act accordingly to remove him from power. We may eventually need to step outside legal boundaries but when the enemy acknowledges no such rules to guide him, it´s necessary to level the playing field.

Typical behavior of a malignant narcissist. Such individuals can take a sledge hammer to your being--emotionally or physically--and if you are hurt, well, that´s just "your perception." It´s merely our perception, you see, that he said we can keep our insurance and our doctor.

#28, and he´s the Arch Deceiver.

WE are not surprised. His guidebook is Rules for Radicals, whose author dedicated the first editions to none other than Lucifer.

BO has earned nothing but contempt. A lie or series of lies, piled deep, should completely Lame Duck him, neutralize him, stop him in his tracks.

Immigration reform? it´ll be an economic benefit? there are only 11 million? whatever. uh-huh! we believe you, BO. (and Dem/Leftie cohorts and RINOs)

(as #20, notes) We can keep our Second Amendment Rights? uh-huh!

You know. The list goes on, everything from ´09 on.

Everything: lies. Except this, his plans for the "fundamental transformation" of America.

You don´t fundamentally transform something you love. He loathes the USA, he loathes us. He has the typical left-wing loathing for the People they claim to champion.

This time, his lies are directly impacting individuals. A lot of these people may now be listening a bit more carefully, and looking anew at the events of the past 5 years.

Let me be very clear about one thing: 0bama is a damned liar.

He lies because he can. It does not matter whether the lie he tells is large or small, it does not matter who gets hurt. 0bama lies because he´s done it all of his life and gotten away with it.

He´s lied about everything from his origins to you being able to continue to see the doctor you´ve had for 15 years.

0bama will continue to lie because it´s who he is, it´s what defines him, and he will continue to lie about lying.

Let us be clear. When George W. Bush caused Hurricane Katrina (to kill black people), he set in motion a chain of evil that led to Sarah Palin inciting shootings in Tucson (to kill Democrats) which, in turn, led to the despicable Republican sabotage that literally forced President Obama to misspeak. Only a fool could deny the truth of this, so blindingly obvious it is. So, let´s be perfectly clear about the root cause of President Obama´s so-called "lies", and place the blame on whom it really belongs: the subhumans who dare oppose the glories of Socialism. Forward!

An acquaintance of mine just posted on Facebook

"Do Christians act like Christ, especially the ones who tell lies about people in office, believe flawed propaganda, call names and spew hatred about Obama in a VERY unkind way but condone the bad behavior of people in Congress who think the way they do?"

I flipped and wrote back all kinds of goodies to make the folks see how hypocritical that was. I said it wasn´t right to paint everyone with the same brush because of a few and I also asked where is the proof that they are all lies? What about the proven lies he has told?

I really like the guy (the acquaintance) but he is one of those ivory tower professors who is out of touch with reality--including economics, finance and the truth about what really is going on today. He thinks he understands it all and knows better because he is so educated (indoctrinated). It is sad.

My father had a boss who was one of these guys who´d lie and then he´d believe his own lies.

Obama has probably always been that way and there are folks out there who look for those guys to put them in charge of something.

I think management´s theory is these guys who can never tell the truth, nor understand what it is, are easily manipulated just in case you need to do something any normal person would find appalling.

#14 ~ you´ve been pushing the ´slut´ angle for years but I met the woman and know something about her.

SHE WAS PLAIN and unpretentious. She could stand naked at the corner and not get picked up by anybody.

We even have her book ~ a short one, but very important. If you ever want to copy some traditional Javanese woven patterns, that´s her work.

I´ve looked everywhere on the net and querried old friends and no one in the broadest circle I can draw that encompasses Obama´s mother can come up with anything to substantiate the ´slut´ part.

So, let´s see your evidence.

I have a feeling he is going to get away with it, despite all the videotaped evidence. Already the liberal pundits are adopting the narrative that you can keep your policy, IF the insurance company didn´t change it. Blame it on the insurance companies and push back on the lie. Repeat it so many times, that people will start believing it.

When a bored president

Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 4/18/2014 3:44:08 PM     Post Reply
Like it or not, the world is a dangerous place, and getting more so. None of the portents look good. Vladimir Putin not so subtly says, in ever louder voice, that he’s in charge of events now, and the rest of the world should just get used to it. When Vlad roars, the rest of the world squeaks. He was in louder voice than ever Thursday, reminding a televised forum in Moscow that his parliament has authorized him to use force “if necessary” in eastern Ukraine, which he called, for the first time, “New Russia.” Whether portent or not, leaflets

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy. During his remarks, the potential 2016

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued. The gun was fired during the struggle, but police

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100. From January to February, the price index for uncooked ground beef rose from 248.864 to 258.323, its highest level ever. The 258.323 price index also indicates that the

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

Revolt Against the Testing Tyrants

Have you had enough of the testing tyranny? Join the club. To be clear: I´m not against all standardized academic tests. My kids excel on tests. The problem is that there are too damned many of these top-down assessments, measuring who knows what, using our children as guinea pigs and cash cows. College-bound students in Orange County, Fla., for example, now take a total of 234 standardized diagnostic, benchmark and achievement tests from kindergarten through 12th grade. Reading instructor Brian Trutschel calculated that a typical 10th-grade English class will be disrupted 65 out of 180 school days this year alone for

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) used President Obama’s own words as a U.S. senator to excoriate him for threatening to veto the ENFORCE the Law Act, which would provide a streamlined system for a house of Congress to the sue the Executive Branch for failing to enforce laws passed by Congress. “How does going from being a senator to a president rewrite the Constitution?” Gowdy asked. Telling House members that he was going to give them a “pop quiz,” Gowdy added, “That may seem unfair to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, but I’m going to give them a hint:

The Pew Research Center’s latest estimate of the number of illegal aliens residing in the United States—11.7 million as of March 2012--was less than the approximately 12.5 million people whom the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated were unemployed in the United States in the average month of 2012. However, it exceeds the approximately 11.46 million people whom BLS says were unemployed in the average month of 2013. Pew released its latest report on the “unauthorized immigrant” population on Sept. 23, 2013. Headlined “Population Decline of Unauthorized Immigrants Stalls, May Have Reversed,” it estimated that the illegal alien

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
