Disasters of CANADIAN SOCIALISM; Especially NATIONAL BANKRUPTCY!

Two articles explain why Canada could turn into another Venezuela!

Hey, Trudeau, your “most expensive (HEALTH CARE) system in the world cannot meet the public’s needs.”
“Canada’s healthcare, to paraphrase Hillary, ‘leaves no citizen behind,’ but THIS MOST EXPENSIVE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD CANNOT MEET THE PUBLIC’S NEEDS. Although Canada’s Universal healthcare is excellent once the person is in the system, the key words are “in the system,” and it’s not always “universal,” with wealthier provinces better funded than others. It is true that their efficiency channels the funds more to care than to administration, but patients are assessed in terms of “outcome” and what is acceptable to the voters. This is reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s warning of death panels, where the medical boards evaluate the person’s age and quality of life before deigning to provide costly medication and therapy.”

They Paved Canada and Put Up a Parking Lot! AND OTHER PROBLEMS WITH SOCIALIST CANADA!!

The cover of the August 2017 issue of Rolling Stone magazine displays the image of Justin Trudeau, and the first headline, “Justin Trudeau, Why Can’t He Be Our President?”

Aside from his not being an American, the American people have finally elected to withdraw from their detrimental socialism and return to our Constitutional Republic.  Unfortunately, Canadians have reversed their course toward a more intense socialism.

Trudeau promised real change, the same vague promise made by then-candidate President Obama in 2008.  To reflect his multiculturalism, Trudeau chose a cabinet of thirty, based not on competence, but on gender, ethnicity, and disabilities, yet there appears to be not one observant Jew among them to handle the antisemitism in schools and media and to represent the one percent Jewish population most victimized by hate crimes in an increasingly dangerous Canada. He pledged to legalize recreational marijuana, and to change the electoral system, except that he finds this to be unnecessary now that the very process got him elected.

A globalist, Trudeau promised to welcome 25,000 more Syrian refugees in 2016, without vetting facilities, compared to the 10,000 accepted by the Conservatives. Interestingly, immediately following the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, he accepted 33,200 refugees, a number that soon became 46,700, representing the same belief system and increasing violence to that one percent and more.   I am reminded of the song, “They paved Paradise and put up a parking lot.”

The Trojan Horses!

Canadian-born, then-15-year-old Omar Khadr, had been taken by his father to join Al Qaeda.  Captured at 16, he pled guilty to planting ten landmines and murdering an American soldier by throwing a grenade at Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer, in a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan. US Sgt. Layne Morris was also severely wounded by the explosion and blinded in one eye. Convicted, and after serving eight of his 40-year-sentence in Guantanamo, the 24-year-old Khadr was released to Canada where he would spend the remainder of his sentence.

Despite his being dropped into a war zone by his own father, however, he sued the Canadian government for breaching his rights (as a minor) under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and received $10.5 million and an apology from the Canadian government. Years before, Omar’s father had been arrested and imprisoned for being an Al Qaeda financier in the jihad bombing of the Egyptian embassy in Pakistan, and his mother wanted to raise her six children outside of Canada, away from Western social influences. This is just one of many unvetted families who have emigrated to the west. Trudeau has indeed brought change. Instead of this family’s paying for their crimes, they are receiving payment for their crimes. Inviting and rewarding terrorism has resulted in increased crime against Canada’s Jewish citizens and will ultimately affect all infidels. (ME THINKS A WALL IS NECESSARY AT THE CANADIAN BORDER.) 

Honor killings are on the rise in Canada, sanctioned by sharia, blamed on the challenging process of integration but never experienced with previous immigrants.  They include a 16-year-old daughter of Pakistanis who was killed for wanting to wear western clothes and get a part-time job, like her peers; a 19-year-old daughter whose crime was to stay out all night; a first-wife and three daughters found drowned in their vehicle in a canal, and 13 other such cases under investigation.

The results of Trudeau’s tenure in office thus far range from disappointing to disconcerting. Unable to cap Canada’s budget deficit at $30 billion over three years as expected, after a year in office, Trudeau blames the previous administration for weak economic growth. Considering Trump’s roaring economic growth within his first six months, Trudeau’s excuse is feeble. And, rather than keep his promise to help to defeat ISIS, he has promised humanitarian support for Iraqis and Syrians.

Rolling Stone magazine also bore the headline, “How the Trump administration is destroying the EPA.”  The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an agency of the U.S. federal government, which was created to protect human health and the environment by enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. Created in 1970, this bureaucracy had burgeoned, by 2016, to 15,376 full-time employees, with a budget of $8.1 billion. The Trump administration proposed a 31% budget cut to $5.7 billion and to eliminate a fourth of the agency jobs. This is improvement, not destruction.

The EPA’s increased jurisdiction has encroached on private property, making it more difficult for farmers, ranchers, those in agriculture and homebuilding to meet stringent water supply regulations. The US Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business, The American Farm Bureau Federation and others filed a lawsuit to stop the EPA, which uses the pressure of social media for covert propaganda for their own purposes, violating laws and increasing prices of produce. Farmers depend on a fair regulatory system that protects the environment and does not force them to raise strangling prices on consumers.

As Mark Levin explained, “The EPA is destroying the middle class; it’s destroying working people in this country; it’s destroying coal miners; it’s destroying oil jobs; it’s destroying trucking jobs. The EPA is destroying our smokestack industries. The EPA is doing more damage to our economy and hardworking men and women in this country than any country in the world. The environmental movement is a communist movement.”

Complying with EPA regulations costs the U.S. economy $353 billion per year — more than 30 times its budget, more than Denmark’s entire national GDP in 2011. The annual cost of the global warming industry is, conservatively, $1.5 trillion, enough to reduce our taxes and national debt – for the “possibility” of reducing our temperature by 0.048°C (0.086°F) by the end of the century, the same temperature reduction one experiences traveling down an elevator.

By shrinking its budget to two-thirds, its workforce to one-fifth, and limiting its regulatory powers, Trump is redefining and narrowing the EPA’s focus to its original purpose of 1970, to improve our water and air while also cultivating job growth.  Superfund sites (land previously used for chemical dumps) will fall under the purview of the states, rather than further drain the federal budget.

MORE ON HEALTH CARE:

CONSTITUTION.COM

Brian Lindenberg | April 16, 2012

In my last article for BenefitsCanada.com, I compared and contrasted the state of healthcare in this country at the time that the basic principles for the Canada Health Act were conceived (in 1961) and today.

As the federal government is about to undertake a review of this legislation, it’s important that all Canadians formulate a point of view on the future of our healthcare system. Employers in particular have a vested interest in the outcome of these deliberations, given the interrelationship between the public system and employee benefits programs.

First, an important acknowledgement: the healthcare debate is charged with emotion. Canadians from all walks of life have different experiences with our healthcare system, and these form our opinions. My own experiences with our system have been generally favourable—others I know have had completely difference experiences. Additionally, there are those Canadians who are also health professionals working within the system who are constantly asked to do more with less. The perspectives of the multiple stakeholders are of equal importance in the deliberations of the future of healthcare in this country. Weighing each perspective is the next-to-impossible task put before the government as it develops a template for Canada’s healthcare system that will last another 50 years.

So with this very important caveat, let’s consider THREE THINGS WORKING WELL IN OUR CURRENT  system and SIX THINGS THAT DO NOT!

What works well

No Canadian is left behind – Unlike in the U.S., no citizen of this country is denied access to healthcare based on whether or not he or she can afford to pay. This is a point of pride for many Canadians and clearly distinguishes us from our neighbours to the south. Universal healthcare defines us as Canadians.

Excellent standard of care – Once you are in the system, the standard of care is excellent. For example, health outcomes in the areas of cardiovascular disease and many forms of cancer are far better than in the U.S., which suggests that we are doing many things right. Of course, the operative words here are “once you are in the system.” Clearly, reasonable access to care is an issue that this country must address. (??? HOW COME I MET SO MANY CANADIANS WHEN MY WIFE AND I SPENT SIX WEEKS, FOLLOWED BY MANY VISITS, TO MAYO CLINIC???)

Funds go to healthcare, not administration – For the most part, our Canadian system efficiently allocates funds between healthcare provision and healthcare administration. For every dollar spent on healthcare funding, far less gets spent on administration than in countries such as the U.S. Our system is FAR FROM PERFECT, but in relative terms, it is not bad.

What does not work well

Our healthcare system is costly – Canada has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world. We can look to many OTHER COUNTRIES to see SUPERIOR HEALTH FOR LESS MONEY. Our single-payer model works in theory, but, in practical terms, it has not delivered the results that one would have necessarily expected with respect to value for money.

Healthcare decision-making is political – Healthcare decisions are often made based on “political palatability” or what’s acceptable to the voting public versus what makes sense from a financial sustainability perspective or in terms of health outcomes. The decision-making process is complicated and often slow, and results in small incremental change rather than fundamental change. We are likely at a point in time where we need to ask the tough questions—but the politics of decision-making will get in the way and we may not get to where we need to be.

ACCESS to care is A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM – Restrictions on government funding has limited access to care—wait-lists are routine, and Canadians are increasingly having difficulties accessing the services of family physicians. The system has not kept up with the demands and expectations of the patient.

The healthcare system is NOT VERY NIMBLE – Our healthcare system is huge and, therefore, not very nimble. Although many provinces are trying to change this, our system remains focused on acute and chronic care—addressing the problem once it becomes a problem. Most experts agree that the focus should shift to prevention and health promotion. This is a monumental shift that is going to take time. The system has also not kept up with the changing face of illness and treatment. For example, physical health remains the primary focus of the system while mental illness represents a significant cost to the Canadian economy and society. Drug therapy is used extensively in the treatment of injury and disease, yet these costs fall largely outside of the public system.

NOT ALL CANADIANS ARE TREATED THE SAME – We have a UNIVERSAL healthcare system and yet—in some respects—this is also A MISREPRESENTATION. HEALTH CARE  across the country is far from consistent with access to care defined, in part, by your province of residence. And this gap will only get larger as resource-rich provinces such are Alberta and Saskatchewan are able to invest more on a per capita basis than the other provinces. Health transfer payments are supposed to compensate for these funding imbalances; however, the fact of the matter remains—our healthcare system is far from universal.

So where to from here? Many of the basic principles embedded in the Canada Health Act still work. However, this important piece of legislation needs to be modernized to reflect the realities of today.(MAYBE IT NEEDS TO BE REPEALED AND REPLACED). The principles of public administration and the guidelines for what is “medically necessary” in particular need to be reviewed to ensure that whether what was anticipated in 1961 still works today. And we need to ask the hard questions—the questions no politician wants to ask—to ensure that we establish the most appropriate path for our future.

We can probably all agree on the objective—to develop a framework for a cost-effective, efficient healthcare system that responds to the medical needs of all Canadians. How we get there is subject to debate. But we do need to get there, and the debate needs to start now.

A lawless Government Creates a Lawless Country!

Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

Modal Trigger Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

The Obama administration will tell any lie and break any law to prevent the president’s signature health-care program from collapsing.

Insurance companies such as UnitedHealthcare and Aetna are losing billions trying to sell ObamaCare plans, and the risk is they’ll drop out at the end of 2016. No insurance companies means no ObamaCare.

In 2014, the White House tried to avert that disaster by promising insurers a taxpayer-funded bailout, but public outrage and quick action by Sen. Marco Rubio put a stop to it. Now the administration is at it again.

Desperate to keep insurers on board, the administration scrambled to find another pot of money. Unfortunately, once again, a big part of that money pot belongs to the public.

President Obama doesn’t seem to care. On Feb. 12, the administration announced that the money will be handed out to insurers — a whopping $7.7 billion this year alone.
But it’s not just expensive: That huge handout to the insurance industry is also illegal.

This is money you and everyone else who already has insurance are forced to pay, called a reinsurance fee. You pay the fee whether you buy your own plan or get covered at work, even if your employer self-insures. You may be clueless about it, but the fee is buried in your premium or taken out of your compensation.

The text of the Affordable Care Act is clear as a bell on what this money can be used for.

Some of these annual fees — adding up to billions a year — belong to the public, not the insurance companies. The law states a fixed share “shall be deposited into the general fund of the Treasury of the United States and may not be used” to offset insurance companies’ losses.

But the administration gave all of it to the insurance companies last year, and got away with that heist. So now they’re trying it again.

Anyone in the corporate world who misused funds that way would be headed to prison. This rogue administration is going to any length — including running afoul of the law — to keep insurers hooked into ObamaCare.

In the words of University of Houston law professor Seth Chandler, who tried to call attention to the crime several months ago, this is “an illegal diversion of funds . . . to enrich insurers.” Last year alone, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas got $549 million of these reinsurance funds, while Anthem Blue Cross of California got $401 million.

How did this fly under the radar last year? Because no one — especially members of Congress — has read the law. Insurance companies weren’t about to object to getting more money than the law allows.

Plus, the announcements of these payments were buried in mind-numbing federal agency releases. The latest such disclosure came late last Friday — heading into a holiday weekend.

This week, a few health scholars took notice, including Galen Institute senior fellow Doug Badger. He says the illegal maneuver is “designed to keep a sinking ship from hitting rock bottom.”

ObamaCare was sold on lies: You can keep your health plan if you like it. And keep your doctor if you like your doctor. Then, once it was passed, the administration resorted to a long string of lawless executive actions to keep an unworkable scheme going, despite the damage being done to employers, doctors and consumers.

The administration’s diversion of public funds to its insurance-company cronies is just the latest defiance of the law.

The president has illegally delayed the employer mandate repeatedly. He’s handing out free ObamaCare plans to illegal immigrants. Statutory deadlines are routinely ignored, and funds are slyly shifted from one program to another — the law be damned.

Ultimately, ObamaCare is imperiling not only our health and our nation’s economic growth, but even our nation’s most precious asset — the rule of law.

 AND WORSE, (If anything could be worse)!

Awful, just awful… what a lawless administration.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/431676/obama-administration-enabling-noncitizen-voting

Several well-funded organizations — including the League of Women Voters and the NAACP — are fighting efforts to prevent non-citizens from voting illegally in the upcoming presidential election. And the United States Department of Justice, under the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is helping them.

On February 12, these groups filed a lawsuit in D.C. federal court seeking to reverse a recent decision by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The Commission’s decision allows Kansas and other states, including Arizona and Georgia, to enforce state laws ensuring that only citizens register to vote when they use a federally designed registration form. An initial hearing in the case is set for Monday afternoon, February 22.

A NOTE ABOUT THE APPLE I-PHONE CONTROVERSY:

To see this in perspective, we have to go back to the Snowdon Controversy!  Did Snowdon commit a crime? Yes!  Was his crime a public service? Yes!

If you don’t believe we are living under a lawless government, after reading this far, then you are asleep and I hope you wake up in time!  The wimps in the media (propaganda machine) keep you thinking that the Apple Controversy is about one phone!  IT IS NOT!  As Snowdon proved, we do not have any privacy from “Big Brother”  except for this latest model of I-phone by Apple.

We need to ask, “Why didn’t the FBI take this phone to Apple before they caused it to lock-up?” Seventy times in the past, the FBI prevailed upon Apple to help them with phones that had not reached the “locked-up” stage.  Apple always cooperated.  I’m not very tech savvy, but listening to those that are, I found out that for Apple to get into this phone at this stage would open up the flood gate for the destruction of the last vestige of privacy left in the tech world.

If privacy is so important for the ability to murder a baby in the womb, then maybe “We the People” should be allowed this one little area of privacy.

 Let’s face it, Apple is the one system that hackers from China, Russia, North Korea, Isis and other enemies of privacy have not been able to penetrate!  As Snowdon proved, NOTHING IS PRIVATE ANYMORE, except this one tiny area!

Will Apple win? Probably not, because the “sheeple” believe what they are told by the media!  Apple will cave and the NSA will now be able to spy on this tiny island of privacy left to “We the People.”

From Fixing People to Fixing Politics: Can Ben Carson Do It?

THE BELOW ARTICLE IS GREAT, BUT LEAVES OUT THE ABILITY OF DR CARSON TO REMOVE THE SCHISM, CREATED BY BARRY OBAMA, BETWEEN THE RACES !  BEGINNING WITH OBAMA’S CLAIM THE CAMBRIDGE POLICE WERE STUPID, THROUGH HIS SUPPORT FOR THE GANGSTER MICHAEL BROWN IN FERGUSON. OBAMA HAS CREATED THE WORST ENVIRONMENT FOR RACE RELATIONS SINCE HIS PARTY CONTROLLED THE SOUTHERN STATES AND WATER-HOSED AND BEAT BLACK AMERICANS!

HERE IS THE ARTICLE EXPRESSING MY ENTHUSIASM FOR DR CARSON:

Although Ben Carson is a newcomer to politics, he’s done a relatively good job of sticking close to GOP pack leaders, even overtaking Donald Trump’s impressive lead for a short time. His political inexperience, however, leaves many wondering “can he do it?” Can Ben Carson lead the United States, help restore economic prosperity, protect us from terrorism, and calm racial and political tensions at home that threaten to destroy us? Can the fixer of people fix American politics? Here are some reasons why he just might…

He’s a catalyst for change.

Ben Carson will disrupt the status quo. Unlike many of the other candidates, Dem or GOP, he isn’t bound by DC political ties. He’s fresh off the political boat, as it were, and can bring a new perspective to Washington and the White House. He is willing to state what he believes, even if it isn’t popular, but he does it in a way that demands respect instead of ridicule.

He may be new to politics, but he isn’t new to leadership.

Carson doesn’t have much political experience, but he has a resume chock-full of leadership roles. He was director of pediatric neurology at John Hopkins, and if you don’t think that position entails tough calls and decisions that will affect vulnerable children and parents, then you have another thing coming. He’s also served on the boards of corporations like Kellogg Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp as well as founding and heading his own non-profit.

He’s the smartest in the pack of candidates.

Leading the United States of America isn’t brain surgery, but I would guess it’s pretty darn close. Ben Carson would bring not only his intellectual prowess to the Oval Office, but also his plain old common sense. While the intelligence of many of the candidates can be doubted, no one could ever doubt Ben Carson’s genius stature. Even though he’s new to politics, he has the ability to learn the skills he needs to be able to lead the country well.

He understands healthcare.

One of the biggest issues facing Americans in this presidential election is healthcare: the Affordable Care Act isn’t working, but no one seems to have a good plan to fix it. Because Ben Carson has worked in healthcare for most of his life, he understands the unique pressures doctors face and he understands that patients need exceptional but affordable healthcare. If anyone can fix our healthcare crisis, Dr. Carson can.

He’s civil.

A characteristic that has been lost in American politics is civility. Recent elections feature mudslinging and name calling and ad homonym attacks but little in the way of truth mixed with kindness. Carson has proven himself to be soft-spoken and civil even to those he does not agree with. While his opponents dredge up anything they can to attack him, Carson responds with graciousness.

Conclusion

Ben Carson may not have a plethora of elected roles under his belt, but that doesn’t disqualify him from the role of commander in chief. Who’s to say that serving as a senator or representative or even governor–probably the job most similar in nature to that of president—prepares a person for the difficult job of leading the United States of America? Any new president has a steep learning curve, and we think Ben Carson can overcome that learning curve as well as anyone.

WE BELIEVE BEN CARSON CAN OVERCOME THAT LEARNING CURVE BETTER THAN ANYONE RUNNING TODAY!

We are certain any of the republican candidates are much better than anyone the democrats are offering.  In my house there has been a lot of interest in Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Dr Ben Carson.  However, Ben Carson seems to carry the day!

ALSO, HE CAN RESTORE THE IMAGE OF HARD WORKING, BLACK AMERICANS AFTER THE IMAGE OF THE GOLFER; DO-NOTHING DURING BENGHAZI; START WORK AT 9 IN THE MORNING; WASTED OBAMA!
What do you think? Is Ben Carson qualified to serve as president? Why or why not?

Dems Really Fear Dr Ben Carson! He is my first Choice.

Even then it was obvious!

The hit piece this article is commenting on is found at this link immediately below.  I suggest you read our answer to it first, then come back and click the link to see if I hit the mark, or am I all wet:

http://www.vnews.com/home/19431951-95/column-ben-carson-the-most-dangerous-candidate-in-america#.Vk0xkVTs-w0.gmail

I AM A PROUD DR BEN CARSON FAN.  The article we are responding to makes some hurtful, erroneous and outrageous charges against a man that is one of the few real geniuses of our times.   Without further ado, I will list the charges and give you as factual an answer as I can.

Ben Carson is too smart; my cousin David Mazzola lives as a monk offering constant love; my aunt Anne Mazzola walks with the saints!

Why I like Trump, Cruz and Carson!  They are all men that speak the truth and stand up for the people!  My personal favorite is Carson.  I fear the uninformed voter might get put off by his thoughtful, deliberate speech pattern.  So if he is not the candidate, he should be picked as Vice President.  Here is why, in answer to another writers attack on this great man:

Steve Nelson, the attackers claims are in bold letters.
He is a climate change denier-
Climate change is real. It has always been taking place. We’ve had a boiling ball, times of warmth and times of Ice Ages. WHILE humans add a very tiny bit to it, the Milankovitch Cycles are the cause of climate change. These cycles bring an Ice Age every so many millenia.  That is why the ice caps are actually growing not melting as the global liars try to make us believe. Ben agrees with this fact, not some fairy tale that puny mankind can pollute our powerful planet into oblivion.
If reporters went after the facts of the unqualified Barry Obama the way the are “supposing” about a genius and accomplished man like Ben Carson, the USA would not have fallen into being the laughing stock of the world.
HE EQUATES ABORTION AND OBAMAsCARE TO SLAVERY-
Abortion is not slavery, but it is infanticide and murder.  While in certain situations an abortion can be justified, just as executing a murderer is, or killing an enemy soldier in war would be.  With all of the methods of birth control around, using it as a form of birth control is a sin and a crime.
ObamaScare might not equate to slavery, but it certainly was rammed thru as if Obama was a dictator selling a lie! (Have you save $2,500 on your premiums? In many programs you could not keep your doctor. Did the politicians and we the people have enough time to read the 2000 page monster or was it rammed through with “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it!”) I never heard Ben say it was slavery. Can you cite the quote?
HE THINKS THE PYRAMIDS WERE FOR GRAIN STORAGE-
While Ben said “It was a theory” that pyramids were for grain storage, there is a long historical treatise by some archaeologists that support that theory. If you want me to I’ll try to find it.  One fact I do know is that when they open a pyramid the wheat will still germinate all these centuries later. What a great feature for grain storage.
HE LIED ABOUT WEST POINT-
“… a prior interview during which he stated that he was offered a full scholarship to attend West Point. On the live screen he claimed that he never said he was offered a full scholarship to attend West Point.”   First, I read his book and saw the video.  That is stretching the words a little. Ben was never geared to the military.  He did meet with Westmoreland or one of his aids.  There is some question about the date, but most of us can’t remember every sequence of every event in high school.  However, Westmoreland was in Detroit a few months after the date Ben recalls.  (Bill, maybe you can recall it all, but you were always the brainiest boy in the class!)  Also, as a military academy grad you received what the civilians call a full scholarship. As a cadet you might call it something else, but to the average person you got a full scholarship with a stipend added in.  That is what he thought was being offered
He castigates the “liberal media for doubting that he attempted matricide.”  Never doubt someone’s redemption!-
Ben tells a few stories to show how he went from being another angry ghetto kid on the path to being a criminal, to turning his life around by turning to God!  Compare his ghetto experience to the life of privilege of Barry Obama!  It appears, by Barry’s own words, he turned his life around from being a coddled little boy into a druggy that did poorly in school. I must assume, he turned his life over again. This time to the devil because he became president!
WHAT A COUNTRY! EVEN A FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT, USING “AFFIRMATIVE ACTION” CAN BE PRESIDENT IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS IN HIGH OR FIRY-LOW PLACES! In Barry’s place, I assume he had both kinds of friends, but none were the same God that Ben turned to!
Regarding “Redemption.” I recently lost a friend that was Jr. Mr America (He won that title the same day I was wounded in Vietnam), Mr America. Then Mr Universe four times. He  was also a criminal!  He recently died of cancer because while he was a natural body builder through Mr America, to beat people like Arnold and the others in the Mr Universe category he had to use steroids.  The last time I saw him before he died he wished he never used steroids!  However, he was not angry about any other aspect of his life.  He claimed if he didn’t act and associate with criminals he never would have gone to jail and have a chance for “Redemption.”  When he knew he was dying he was a minister, and helping 100’s of people.  He was also at peace.  His name was Dennis Tinerino. Like millions of people that he touched, I miss him!  His ministry was in Beverly Hills and he was a minister to the Stars.  (Yes, not everyone there is a crazy liberal! Some have to hide their faith.)
Bill, do you remember out days of Christian Doctrine?  I’m sure you continued to live a relative clean life with your dedication to The Military Code.  However, your CD buddy had his tangent experiences, Like Ben and Dennis, I am so grateful that God saw fit to offer me “Redemption.”  So, anyone that sneers at Ben, the ghetto kid that made good because of God, has no standing in my eyes.
Your information source, Steve Nelson, might be a very nice person.  However, he appears to me to lack initiative, class and intellect even though he writes with a clear pen! If he can’t appreciate the hard work and genius of a Ben Carson, he may even be a little dumb.  Yes! I would say that to his face!   I bet he is a big Obama fan!  Obama, the guy that had no experience at anything except to be pushed along by some very powerful people so he could one day do to the USA what no other power has ever been able to do in over 240 years–DESTROY THE USA!
When Steve Nelson says, “The greatest danger is that Carson is a black man conservatives can love. An MSNBC analyst suggested that Carson, if nominated, might win as much as 25 percent of the black vote. These statistics reveal the real challenge Carson might represent to the Democratic nominee,”  I realized that Nelson is just another liberal demonrat (democrat operative) that is fearful.  Ben Carson will pull a lot more than 25% of the Black vote.  My guess is he will pull at least 50% of the Black vote. So, this is just another hit piece. A piece of propaganda from the liberal media that does nothing to help the USA.  If this was the 1930’s and ’40’s I would think Barry was Adolph  and the media was under the control of Goebbles!
I don’t need to summarize, because Steve Nelson does the best job of summarizing his smear campaign against a man that is 1,000 times better than him and me put together!  He does this with the statement, When Carson calls anti-racist work “political correctness,” how might one challenge him? Who knows the black experience better than a black man raised in poverty? When smug white intellectuals argue that affirmative action is reverse racism, we can challenge them to consider how their own white privilege might have stunted their capacity for empathy. When Carson says black folks are playing the “victim card,” what can be said?”

Obama’s Medical Insurance Simply Explained!

 Dear Reader:

The democrats claimed the purpose of The (un)Affordable Health Care Act often called ObamaScare, was to make sure every citizen had health insurance. In 2010 they claimed we had 30,000,000 uninsured people in the USA. Five years later The USA has 30,000,000 uninsured people. Co-pays are astronomically higher! Instead of premiums going down $2500 a year as President Obama promised they have gone up, and up and uuUP!  Suddenly, the people that used to come through our medical facilities have been replaced by an entirely different group. 

“This is EXACTLY what we are seeing with the throngs of frappers parading through Humana, for lo these endless months” stated a Humana employee.

The following synopsis of ObamaScare was written by an engineer.  A good engineer, wrote this. If a Lawyer had written it, we would be reading pg, 2000 by next week! You would have labored through at least 1000 “whereases” ” to-wits”, and as many  “party of the first parts”.

 Here is how you get to the core of this stupid piece of legislation in 4 simple sentences:

As humorous as it sounds…..every last word is absolutely TRUE!

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.
2. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.
3. To  re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.
4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured,
and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, so it will be ‘free-of-charge’ to them.

 Back to the more verbose me:This, ladies and gentlemen, is called “redistribution of wealth” or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM, or “PROGRESSIVE”, the politically correct names for COMMUNISM !

Wow! What a brilliant way to raise money by the productive to fund a free service for the unproductive. Aren’t we lucky to have such a brilliant man as Barry Obama leading us!

Of course, there are government subsidies to help with the extra expenses.  You do realize that a government subsidy is when the government takes money away from the citizen, so the government can take a cut, giving what’s left over to the sick (that deserve help), those in temporary need (that deserve help) and the unproductive that don’t deserve anything!

DON’T FORGET, THERE IS NOT ONE REPUBLICAN FINGERPRINT ON THIS STUPIDITY! THE DEMOCRATS MIGHT WISH THE COULD BLAME THE OTHER PARTY, BUT THEY CANNOT! This proves my theory that the reason historians claim dems are better is because of the following sequence: Democrats make terrible messes of the economy.  The productive people realize it, switch to Republicans that then fix the mess.  Some of the fixes anger enough of the people that it swings the later election back to the Democrats. The dems ride a wave of good economics created by the repubs as they bring back their erroneous policies, messing things up again.  Slavery is a good example:

  It is only the past few decades that the American South has been trending Republican. Prior to that the South was solidly Democrat. From the founding throughout the civil rights fight the dems had a tight control in that part of the USA!  In fact, if it wasn’t for the Northern Republicans, LBJ would never have passed the Civil Rights legislation.  With that in mind, the slave states were controlled by Democrats.

 The Republican President Lincoln and his party in congress freed the slaves.  You could say they fixed the problem.  Then, with various swings in party control in Washington, the South stayed solidly democrat! The dems in the south created a “defacto slave state”, relegating black people to second class status.  It wasn’t until the Republican General Dwight Eisenhower integrated the military and later President Eisenhower integrated the public schools that the errors of the dems were once again corrected.  The same pattern happens over and over again! Especially economically!  How long will it take a Ben Carson, Ted Cruz or Don Trump to fix the many complex economic problems created by the democrats since they took over the countries purse in January 2007. That includes this health care mess!

We invite you to comment on this!

Anchor Babies are under Jurisdiction of Mexico, so are not US Citizens! Here’s Proof!

Anchor Babies on Trial in Texas

By Phyllis Schlafly

A federal case moving to trial in Texas could provide a means to stop the practice of extending automatic U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal aliens. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently called for legislation to end that unpopular practice, which polls show Americans oppose by more than 2 to 1, and even Jeb Bush admitted that it’s perfectly legitimate to call those children “anchor babies.”

The Pew Research Center estimated that 340,000 children are born annually to citizens of Mexico and other foreign countries who are living illegally in the United States, and that doesn’t include children born to “birth tourists,” primarily from Asian countries, which the Center for Immigration Studies estimates could be as high as 36,000. These children are called “anchor babies” because their presumed citizenship enables their parents to access a variety of benefit programs intended for U.S. citizens and makes it so much easier for the entire family to continue living here illegally.

The Texas case is still in its pretrial stage, but an explosive document filed there last week by the government of Mexico adds fuel to the national debate that Trump touched off. The legal brief, which includes a sworn affidavit by Mexico’s consul general for Texas, Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, openly admits that Mexico’s official policy is to encourage its poor people to migrate here illegally in order to access our generous welfare system.

The brief begins by declaring that “Mexico is responsible to protect its nationals wherever they may be residing,” and a footnote clarifies that under the Mexican Constitution, “Mexican nationality is granted to children born abroad of a Mexican-born parent.” In other words, anchor babies born in this country retain their parents’ nationality, which means their citizenship belongs there, not here.

Liberals claim that our own Constitution guarantees automatic U.S. citizenship to all children born on American soil, and it’s true that the Fourteenth Amendment begins with the words, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States … are citizens of the United States.” But behind those three little dots is an important qualification: “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”

What that forgotten phrase means is that when someone born here is “subject to the jurisdiction” of another nation, that child does not become a U.S. citizen unless the laws passed by Congress so provide (and they don’t). By filing its legal brief and submitting sworn testimony in the Texas case, Mexico is officially declaring that children born to its citizens living illegally in the United States remain “subject to the jurisdiction” of Mexico.

The Mexican consul, in his sworn testimony, says, “My responsibilities in this position include protecting the rights and promoting the interests of my fellow Mexican nationals,” and “the main responsibility of consulates is to provide services, assistance and protection to nationals abroad.” Mexico’s assertion of continuing jurisdiction over its “nationals abroad” is inconsistent with any claim to automatic U.S. citizenship merely by reason of birth on U.S. soil.

The Texas case was filed on behalf of about two-dozen mothers who admit they are citizens of Mexico living illegally in Texas. The women complain that without proper ID they cannot get birth certificates for their Texas-born children, and that without birth certificates, they can’t enroll in Medicaid, food stamps, Section 8 housing and other U.S. taxpayer-provided benefits.

Like other states, Texas issues a birth certificate to a close relative only upon presentation of a valid ID issued by a U.S. federal or state agency. These restrictions were adopted to combat the growing epidemic of identity theft, whose main cause is the widespread use of forged or fake documents by illegal aliens.

In order to assist its citizens living here illegally who cannot get the required ID, Mexican consulates issue an official-looking document called the matricula consular, which includes a laminated photo. Of course, Texas rightly refuses to accept such foreign identity documents, which it has no way to verify.

The basic allegation of the lawsuit is that by refusing to accept the matricula consular as proper ID for obtaining a birth certificate, Texas is somehow violating the Fourteenth Amendment by depriving anchor babies of U.S. citizenship. On the contrary, their reliance on a foreign identity document proves they are “subject to the jurisdiction” of a foreign power and thus not eligible for automatic U.S. citizenship.

The Texas lawsuit was concocted by a group called the South Texas Civil Rights Project, which was founded in 1972 as a spin-off of the ACLU. It was assisted by another leftwing legal outfit, Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, whose largest supporter, the Legal Services Corporation, collected $375 million of U.S. taxpayer funds in the current fiscal year.

The newest Obamacare fail: Penalties of $36,500 per worker! THE IRS MONEY GRAB!

” Internal Revenue Service penalty is not written into the Obamacare law.”

The Internal Revenue Service swoops in with a money grab

By
Diana Furchtgott-Roth
Columnist

Hey, employers, don’t even think about reimbursing your workers’ health-insurance premiums.

Beginning this month, the IRS can levy fines amounting to $100 per worker per day or $36,500 per worker per year, with a maximum of $500,000 per firm.

This Internal Revenue Service penalty is not written into the Obamacare law. The amount is over 12 times the statutory amount in the Affordable Care Act of $3,000 per worker per year. That is what an employer is charged when one of its employees gets subsidized care on one of the health-care exchanges. It’s 18 times the $2,000 penalty for not offering adequate health insurance.

The $100 fine is applicable not only to large firms, but also those with fewer than 50 workers that are exempt from the $2,000 and $3,000 employer penalties. Firms with one worker are exempt. The penalty for S-corporations will take effect on Jan. 1, 2016. The new rule is broad, sweeping and overly punitive.

This new IRS penalty does not assist in the ACA’s stated goal of expanding health insurance in the United States. Rather, it does the opposite. It discourages people from finding and purchasing the insurance that suits them. It also discourages companies from hiring. Consider that 14% of businesses that do not offer group health insurance have some sort of arrangement to reimburse their employees for insurance costs, according to the National Federation of Independent Business.

Small employers with a workforce of between 50 and 100 employees are required to offer the more expensive ‘essential health benefits.’

The administration should be encouraging employers to take on more labor, because many capable people are sitting on the sidelines. On the day after the IRS rule took effect, the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued its Employment Situation Report for June 2015. The report showed that U.S. labor-force participation had declined to a new low, 62.6%, equivalent to levels in October 1977. The drop included prime-age workers, those between 25 and 55, who are normally in the labor market because they generally have finished school and have not yet retired.

Rep. Charles Boustany, a Republican from Louisiana, has introduced the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act of 2015, and Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, has a companion bill in the Senate (S.1697). The bills would allow small businesses to use pre-tax dollars to assist employees purchasing insurance in the individual market.

Why has the IRS taken this extreme view? If the employer reimburses an employee for health-insurance premiums, this arrangement is described as an employer-payment plan. The employer-payment plan is considered by the IRS to be a group health plan that has to meet the conditions of Affordable Care Act insurance, including the prohibition on annual limits for essential health benefits and the requirement to provide certain preventive care without cost sharing.

MarketWatch columnist Bill Bischoff explains the new rule as follows. “Employer-payment arrangements have long been a popular way for small employers to help workers obtain health coverage without the hassle and expense of furnishing a full-fledged company health-insurance plan. Under an employer-payment arrangement, the employer reimburses participating employees for premiums paid for their individual health-insurance policies or pays the premiums directly on behalf of participating employees.”

Small employers with a workforce of between 50 and 100 employees are required to offer the more expensive “essential health benefits,” including hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental-health and substance-use disorder services, and pediatric services, including oral and vision care.

In contrast, large employers, those with more than 100 workers, do not have to meet all the generous standards for health-insurance plans offered on the state exchanges, but can offer lesser health insurance and still avoid penalties. The “minimum essential coverage” that large employers have to offer to comply with the law turns out to be substantially less generous than the “essential health benefits” required for plans sold to individuals and small businesses by insurance companies.

Of course, not all employers will choose low-benefit plans. In order to retain workers, many large employers are likely to offer generous plans, and offset the cost by paying a lower cash wage. Recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that benefits account for 32% of compensation packages, with cash wages responsible for the remainder. However, low-benefit plans are likely to be attractive to employers with low-skill workforces in the restaurant, retail, and leisure and hospitality industries.

Although large employers can legally offer low-benefit plants, small employers are not allowed to do so. This leads to an extraordinary discrepancy in potential tax payments between small and large employers. Hence, they face both higher costs for insurance and higher tax penalties if they fail to offer such insurance.

The Boustany-Grassley bill is focused on small businesses, but it makes sense to allow individuals in large companies to choose less expensive options. Health-insurance premiums are rising substantially. Oregon’s health-insurance commissioner has just approved raises of 25% to 33% for Moda Health Plan and Lifewise, affecting over 220,000 people. Other health-insurance companies nationwide are asking for increases in the same range, and insurance commissioners are deciding whether to approve them.

Even the least expensive plans on the health exchanges, termed bronze plans, feature deductibles that are prohibitive for many. The average deductible on a bronze plan is $5,000 for a single person and $11,000 for a family, according to HealthPocket, a research firm.

Businesses need to take a stand against this new IRS power grab. As Americans search for low-cost ways to stay insured, it makes sense for the government to give employers more options, rather than fewer.

Democrats Want Fraud to Run Amok in Obamacare!

A lesson in Media Fraud:  Note the difference between my headline above, and the one used by AP below.  Both are biased.  If you just look at the one saying dems want fraud, you think they are all a bunch of crooks.  If you just saw the one below, you would think “Oh, those repubs are trying to hurt Obama again!” 

If you call AP out on this they will say, “Look at the sub-headline.” “Probe Finds Phony Applicants Got Health Benefits!” They would point to that saying, “See we let our readers know there is more to the story than what the headline infers.” However, they know the majority never read past the main headline.

Anyway, here is the article.  Make sure you read between the biased lines of these liberal, Obama propagandists.

Democrats decry undercover probe of HealthCare.gov

Probe Finds Phony Applicants Got Health Benefits!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior Democrats pushed back Thursday against an undercover government probe of President Barack Obama’s health care law, saying it didn’t uncover any real fraud.

Investigators for the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office signed up 11 bogus beneficiaries for 2014 coverage then got HealthCare.gov to continue benefits this year for all but one.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said these were “fictitious cases” and the GAO investigators themselves admit the findings can’t be translated to the 10 million people getting subsidized coverage through the law’s health insurance markets. Wyden spoke at a Finance Committee hearing on the investigation.

But GAO’s audits chief Seto Bagdoyan said the investigation exposed real concerns. He said it was relatively easy for GAO’s fictitious characters to get and keep coverage, even to get reinstated after HealthCare.gov terminated them. HealthCare.gov seems to put a higher priority on getting people covered than on verifying they are legally entitled to benefits, Bagdoyan said.

Democrats have no tolerance for fraud, but “the report up for discussion today is not about any real-world fraud,” Wyden said. “Not one of them was a real person who filed taxes or got medical services. No fast-buck fraudster got a government check sent to their bank account.”

Bagdoyan said GAO is continuing its work on the strength of HealthCare.gov’s antifraud controls, but his preliminary conclusion is that the administration’s main focus is to get as many people signed up as possible. “As of now, the balance would probably favor access over program integrity,” he said.

For example, the investigation found that HealthCare.gov’s document-processing contractor is not charged with deterring fraud beyond looking for papers that appear to have been altered. “They are not tasked to look for fraud,” Bagdoyan said, adding: “We do have concerns about the flags we’ve detected.”

The law’s subsidies for premiums get paid directly to insurers, not individual policyholders. But health insurance is a valuable product in and of itself, with the cost of employer-sponsored family coverage averaging close to $17,000 a year.

Opponents of Obama’s health care law don’t need much prodding to recite its flaws, real or imagined. But GAO’s findings aren’t pure make-believe, said Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind.

“Sure it’s fictitious,” Coats said. “But if this isn’t an alarm bell … I don’t know what is.”

GAO is the investigative agency of Congress.

The facts prove that it is easy to defraud Obama’s unaffordable health care.

Cash Will Soon to Be Outlawed! How to Protect Yourself from the War on Cash?

Is the U.S. Government Waging War on Cash?

Will cash be Outlawed? Denmark is Moving in that Direction.

Does the U.S. government views money as an enemy? How else can you explain their actions?

Recently, the FBI raided two legitimate businesses: a gun shop, taking everything they had and a convenience store where they took more than $100,000 from their bank account. Their  “crime”? Making  cash deposits in excess of $10,000.

These are not isolated cases. The government uses civil asset forfeiture laws to steal  money from law-abiding Americans on a regular basis.

Does the Government Hate Cash? Would outlawing cash Fulfill the dream of a cashless society?

All governments hate cash because it’s impossible to control, hard to track and easier to hide from the taxman.

The Feds punish cash with it’s civil asset forfeiture laws. They call it “policing for profit”. (Not your profit)

States use other methods. Even “so-called” conservative governors (who should know better), such as Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal put into effect a law that OUTLAWS cash while conducting second-hand deals?

Denmark’s considering a law which would reject cash payments. If it’s successful there, be sure the other countries in the world will follow!

Could this be a first step in outlawing cash, creating a “cashless society”? Such a move would assist the government in controlling all aspects of our lives and our money, taking away all “free choice” as well as how and when your money is spent. (They did it with health care! Why would you think they won’t do it with your money?)

This will also happen right here in America. In fact, Former Congressman Ron Paul has already warned, “The cashless society is the IRS’s dream: Total knowledge of, and control over, the finances of every single American.”

WHAT LIBERALS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT FREEDOM!

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY:
 
A liberal’s paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only law enforcement has guns.   
And believe it or not, such a place does indeed already exist: It’s called Prison.”

Socialist wall street protesters say money is root of all evil (except govt money which is solution to all problems)!
Govt stimulus means using the police power of the state to trick men to do what their reason would tell them not to.
Government subsidy: Take money from the productive; government takes their cut; then returns pennies on the dollar to those that did not produce that money!
All Political Systems enrich SOME group; with big govt it is ruthless politicians. with limited govt it is productive businessmen and workers.

Why would a voter ID be hard to get and disenfranchise the poor yet producing a national ID health card is no problem?
