Do Illegals Help or Hurt Our Economy?


Considering the Denver Post is a very liberal paper I’m surprised they published this.  This really shows how the hiring of illegal’s is a false economic practice.

Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post.  She writes some really good stuff and she is a strong advocate for LEGAL Immigration homework on issues is part of her make-up and fabric ..

What if they left?

Somebody really did their homework on this one.  Best on the subject to date.  It does not have a political slant to it, it’s just the facts: Not Democratic, not Republican, not liberal and not conservative.

What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?
I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, “Mexican Visitor’s Lament.”
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week.  Hernandez said, “Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes.  What happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?”
Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.

It’s a good question…  it deserves an honest answer.  Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped.  But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America?  The answers I found may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons.  It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested.  Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back “home,” mostly to Mexico.  That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs.

It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens.  Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages.  At least200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado.  Denver’s 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home,’ the U.S.  economy would return to the rule of law.  Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage.  Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books.  That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English.  No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids.  Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually.  That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ‘ 18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation.  No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans!  No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock.  Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America ‘s economy is drained.  Taxpayers are harmed.  Employers get rich.  Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers.  Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy which currently suffers a $20 trillion debt.  $20 trillion debt!!!

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle.  At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Flo rida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.
Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country – brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities.  It would also put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods.  Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta w here grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse.  They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘ Third World ‘ inside our own country.  Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias.  (I’ve seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico.  We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico.  We already invite a million people into our country legally annually, more than all other countries combined.  We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.  Interesting Statistics!

Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1.  $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that’s Billion with a ‘B’)

3.  $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4.  $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English

5.  $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6.  $3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.  That’s $1.2 Billion a year.

7.  28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8.  $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9.  $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10.  The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens.  In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.

11.  During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries.  Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists.  Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S  from the southern border.

12.  The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13.  In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
14.  The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!  $46 billion is 8.5% of $538 billion!!!!!

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:

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.
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?
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.
“… 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?”

What’s Killing White People?

What’s Killing White People?  The answer is easy, Liberalism!  First read the excerpt from the article in

The NY Times:


Death Rates Rising for Middle-Aged White Americans, Study Finds

“That finding was reported Monday by two Princeton economists, Angus Deaton, who last month won the 2015 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, and Anne Case. Analyzing health and mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from other sources, they concluded that rising annual death rates among this group are being driven not by the big killers like heart disease and diabetes but by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse: alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.”
Why blame the Liberals?  Liberalism/Progressivism or what ever you wish to call it gave us promiscuous sex, drugs and lack of morality called Rock ‘N Roll! As a former idiotic liberal I assure you I rue the day so many of us embraced that philosophy and life-style.
Without the moral underpinnings divorce and dissolution of the family unit runs rampant.  In the “devil may care” environment of the Rock ‘N Roll environment we stopped caring for our bodies and decided it was easier to escape in a hazy drug cloud instead of building our families economic future.  Woman’s Lib turned men into wimps even if mistreating the wife was never part of his character!
Whether the drug of choice is alcohol, heroin or opioids it leads to the same dead end, suicide!  There are many forms of suicide such as the “Installment plan with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.”
Alcoholic liver disease takes longer, and you can play the game as if you are living, but you are just as dead as you would be shooting a gun into your head!
Another area of discouragement for the white person, as pointed out by this article, is economics.  Liberalism provides the environment for “crony capitalism.”  Only with a big, liberal government can the lobbyists of the major companies convince the politician to screw the little guy so he can make more money.  The cry of the liberal democrat is “Take the money out of politics!”  We can question “Why?”  Is it so the liberal politician can have more money for graft?
These problems are fixable!  This article isn’t intended to lay out all of the solutions, just heed it as a wake-up call!  While some of you might call the solutions “Polly-anna-ish” or too spiritual, they work.  We hope to lay out some of these ideas in a new blog, with high lights mentioned here in Amateur vs Competent.  We’ll keep you informed.

How to Lose at Least 22 lbs of Stomach Fat in Just 1 Month.

Special Report 2014: How to Lose at Least 22 lbs of Stomach Fat in Just 1 Month.

This report was created by Fit Life Report to expose the truth behind a new effective product!
Where is Helen? Maybe they used Megan Kelly to indicate Fox News.

Staff reporter Helen Crisell investigates a weird weight loss solution that is quickly gaining popularity in the United States.

(Fit Life Report) – “No magazine cover will have my photo and the word “fat” together, ever again” says Cameron Diaz in her shocking revelation about her two secret fat burning weapons that helped her shed 18 lbs in under a month. For the past couple of months our readers have been going crazy over the same two internet products that are helping women across the world lose weight. As both products have been featured on countless popular TV shows, proven to be safe for ongoing use and best of all, are affordable on any budget, we decided to investigate the incredible results thousands of women have been blogging about and sharing via Facebook and Twitter on a daily basis.

Waves of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Hudson have lost a significant amounts of body fat by taking 2 simple diet cleanses daily. The combined effect is clinically proven to not just shred fat off your physique but flush out all the junk and toxicity that builds up in your body, while also increasing your metabolism. Studies of these natural nutritional supplements show that these rapid benefits all happen without harming your immune system.

As we all know, losing weight often feels like an impossible challenge and all too frequently the results of complicated weight loss programs and diets are painfully disappointing. As we investigated these groundbreaking new products taking the fitness world by storm, we noticed the testimonials from real people as well as major TV docs and celebrities all seemed to actually back the promise that these products were the real deal. Keep reading and you’ll find out why we created this exclusive, special report for women around the world.     combines both ingredients for maximum results!

Cameron Diaz used the diet to lose 18 lbs in just 1 month.

The reason for why most diets fail, in our opinion, is that they impose unrealistic restrictions on how you live your life. Some advocate eating tons of protein others emphasize carbohydrates. In either case, you’re left with having to make rather drastic changes to the types of food you eat and when you eat it. In this special report, we take an in-depth look at an emerging and promising weight loss trend that we believe is a game changer, and it won’t break the bank.

You may have heard of the enormously popular Garcinia Cambogia in the news. It’s a completely organic pumpkin-shaped fruit native to Indonesia – scientifically proven to tear away fat from you body. In studies taken out by renowned health research institution GNP Labs in Los Angeles – Garcinia Cambogia was proven to ignite your metabolism and therefore fat burning capabilities by around 300% when taken regularly. That said, the problem is that very few Garcinia products out there are pure. Most fluctuate between the 60-70% purity levels – well that’s off course until we ran into the product ‘Garcinia Cambogia Plus ‘. The Garcinia Cambogia Plus Formula claimed they delivered 95% pure Garcinia Cambogia Plus extract to your body so to put it simply – we were intrigued.

Further to the above, we had also researched that those taking Garcinia Cambogia Plus experiencing shocking weight loss were also using the natural detoxifier Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra. Together, testimonials claim the combined usage of these two products led to significant weight loss, more energy and generally a healthier day to-day feeling. If you’re skeptical, you’re not alone. When we first learned about this weight loss combo, our diet fad radar went off right away.

Nevertheless, as we began to investigate the countless success stories reported by people from all around the globe, we decided that this weight loss trend was worthy of a closer examination. Moreover, we found it of particular interest that these people had not significantly changed their current lifestyles.

proof2-300x147Jennifer McCarthy from Hollywood, California was reported to have lost a healthy 22 lbs in just 5 weeks while being on the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra combo diet.

In the story on her blog she states, “I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I didn’t change my diet or my daily routine, but the fat melted off like it butter. I love this stuff! Finally a diet that just works.”

For the Fit Life Report test, it was inevitable that I was to be the guinea pig for this diet since I was about to get married. I wanted to lose 14 lbs for my wedding. In order to try the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra diet, I ordered the two products online. Although there are many Cambogia Extract products available, I chose Garcinia Cambogia Plus on the basis that it had been clinically tested and approved at GNP Labs in Los Angeles, California – an organization renowned for their strict guide lines on weight management products.

The bottle of Garcinia Cambogia Plus was delivered in a few days after ordering. All I had to do was pay the $4.95 shipping fee. Garcinia Cambogia Plus is one of the most concentrated and purest weight loss products on the market. This was our shared opinion.

Garcinia Cambogia Plus has been clinically proven to:

  • Cause 4 Times More Weight Loss Than Diet and Exercise
  • Boost Energy
  • Be Richer in Antioxidants Than Blueberries, Goji Berries, and Acai Berries
  • Promote Cardiovascular and Digestive Wellness

Although we were pretty skeptical, we wanted to find out for ourselves if this product could actually do everything that it claimed. Most of the success stories talk about combining Garcinia Cambogia Plus with a cleansing product called Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra to achieve maximum weight loss. The idea behind combining the products is that while the Garcinia Cambogia Plus encourages weight loss and increases energy whilst the Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra helps rid your body of toxins and allows yourbody to work and burn calories more efficiently. After further research, we put Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra to the test.

Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra has been clinically proven to:

  • Help Eliminate Bad Toxins That Have Built Up Over the Years
  • Destroy harmful parasites in your digestive tract
  • Remove ‘Sludge’ From the Walls of the Stomach
  • Help Get Rid of Gas and Bloating
  • Help Regulate the Metabolism
  • Increase Energy

The Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra product like is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Putting the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra Combo to the Test

Both the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra arrived within 4 days of having placed my order online.

  1. Take one Garcinia Cambogia Plus pill per day (in the morning)
  2. Take one Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra pill per day (in the evening)

My Results – 22 lbs In Just 1 Month4-weeks-1

Week One:

After one week on the diet using both products I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I wasn’t even hungry. A welcomed side effect of the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra diet is its power to curb the appetite.

I honestly felt fantastic!

Best of all, I didn’t even change anything about my daily routine. On Day 7, I got on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. I had lost 3.5 lbs. But I still wasn’t convinced, since they say you lose a lot of water weight at the beginning of any diet. I wanted to wait and see the results in the upcoming weeks. But it sure was looking up! I now weighed under 122 lbs for the first time in years!

Week Two:

After two weeks of using both supplements, I started the week off with even more energy, and actually sleeping more soundly than before. I was no longer waking up during the night and tossing and turning because my body was actually able to relax (this is a result of getting rid of the toxins, I think). Plus I still managed to lose another 7 lbs, putting me at an unbelievable 10.5 lbs of weight loss, in just 2 weeks.

I must admit that I’m starting to believe that this diet is more than just a gimmick.

Week Three:

After 3 weeks, all my doubts and skepticism had absolutely vanished! I am down, 2 full dress sizes after losing another 3.5 lbs. And I still have a ton of energy. Quite often, around the third week of other diets, you tend to run out of steam. But with the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra diet my energy levels don’t dip, instead they remain steady throughout the day. I no longer need that cat nap around 3pm in the afternoon! I am even noticing that my stomach is digesting food so much better. No bloating or embarrassing gas after I eat.

Week Four:

After the fourth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 22 lbs since starting the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra diet! Actually everyone at Fit Life Report is kicking themselves for not having volunteered to be the guinea pig. Using the Garcinia Cambogia Plus and Green Coffee Cleanse Ultra in week 4, I lost an additional 2.2 lbs. The results are consistent! But to be honest, I really didn’t have much more than that left to lose. I am definitely going to continue taking the Garcinia Cambogia Plus afterwards because it has so many antioxidants and vitamins that makes my skin look unbelievable.

I couldn’t be any happier with the results. I Lost 22 lbs in 4 Weeks, No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise.

In conclusion, if you are a little doubtful about the effects of this diet, you need to try it for yourself; from our own test, the results are real. We at Fit Life Report had our doubts initially, but we were quickly turned into believers. After conducting our own study, we are pleased to see that people really are finding success with the diet.

In Case you wondered Why the People of the Middle East are Angry and Blood Thirsty……

Genesis: 16:12

And he shall be `as’ a wild ass among men; his hand `shall be’ against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his brethren

Ismael, the father of the Arabs, set the stage for today’s activities by ISIS, Hamas and the other crazy groups! … “thou shalt call his name Ishmael” who like his half brother Isaac, and his nephew Jacob, spawned many generations of people.  While the children of Isaac and Jacob have had their crazy spells (ie the Christian Crusades, Russian Revolution, etc) it seems like over the past 5,000 years the Judeo-Christians have moderated a lot of that craziness, but the spawn of Ismael is still stuck back in the 7th Century!  Below you can read the entire record of the birth of Ismael, and decide for yourself if he set the stage for the blood letting of the Jihadist Muslims?

Genesis: 16   
1 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, bare him no children: and she had a handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, Jehovah hath restrained me from bearing; go in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
3 And Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to Abram her husband to be his wife.
4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I gave my handmaid into they bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: Jehovah judge between me and thee.
6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her that which is good in thine eyes. And Sarai dealt hardly with her, and she fled from her face.
7 And the angel of Jehovah found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s handmaid, whence camest thou? and whither goest thou? And she said, I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.
9 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
10 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, I will greatly multiply thy seed, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
11 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son; and thou shalt call his name Ishmael, because Jehovah hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he shall be `as’ a wild ass among men; his hand `shall be’ against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his brethren.
13 And she called the name of Jehovah that spake unto her, Thou art a God that seeth: for she said, Have I even here looked after him that seeth me?
14 Wherefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bare, Ishmael.
16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

Only a $95 Fine the First year if you do not join ObamaScare-or ‘SAY WHAT’ !?!?

JIM MEIER OSP PROJECT ENGINEER 346 CLINTON AVE SPRING CITY Tennessee 37381 or 369 HORIZON DR N. Fort Myers Fl. 33903 RE: OBAMACARE – A comment posted on the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare FB page:

“I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 AM. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually. I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your driver’s license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”

Kinda sheds a lot of light on all of the arming and beefing up of arms for all of the domestic departments INCLUDING the IRS now doesn’t it? There’s a war coming folks…KEEP IN MIND THE OBAMA LITMUS TEST FOR MILITARY OFFICERS-“WILL YOU SHOOT ON AMERICANS”


Before reading the article below, keep in mind Barry and Michelle Obama spent over

$600,000,000 for a computer system that does not work!!  Presumably, this

computer system was going to keep you healthy!  Please realize that money could

have put $2,000,000 into the pockets of every American! That’s right!  In the family

of 4, Papa could have bought a lifetime worth of insurance for the entire family, and

still had $6,000,000 in the bank for college for the kids, a nice family vacation and

a nest egg for future opportunities and or emergencies! Yes sir!  A crummy computer

for $600,000,000, not to count the $trillions of other dollars wasted on a stupid,

expensive health care system that most Americans don’t want!!!

Doesn’t it make you wonder where all that money went???  We would all like to

know!  We know, two students put together a similar, but functional Health Care

Computer System at little or no cost to anyone.  Many computer experts also claim

they are able to put together the functionally working system for around $1,000,000

with an additional $10 to 50 million with all of the necessary add-ons!  At worst,

the most ObamaScare’s computer system should have cost is $51,000,000.  If

they really had to spend the rest of the $600,000,000 they could have sent it to

the legal citizens of the United States!!

By the way, did you know one of the main people of the Canadian company that

got the contract to set up a non-functioning system is a college friend of Michelle


Like you, I have no idea how they could have spent so much money on a

program that should have only cost 8% of the $600,000,000 Obama spent!  Yet, if

we had a legitimate press someone would have dug up how that suspicious

company doled out it’s largess of $600,000,0000!  Did some go to George Soros to

continue funding his leftist groups and causes? Did a chunk of it end up in the

Obama Secret Bank accounts in the Caribbean and Switzerland??  Of course, to head

off a congressional investigation, quite possibly speaker of the House Bohner and

some other Key republicans and democrats must have been paid off as well???

Who really knows, except for God, the Obama’s, Valery Jarret, the incompetent

computer company and a few other trusted Key Players! (And they ain’t saying).

Me thinks that if the public really knew the truth some very big people in

Washington, District of Corruption would be off to jail!

My wish and prayer is that the politicians in Washington would start thinking like the YouTube video below,

and get off of their greediness, corruption and egoism!

Support those that want to Save America!

Subject: YOU & I ARE members?

 All Politicians take a beating in latest polls!!!!


Ted Cruz, and anyone that takes his similar positions, is trying to save America.  If the Republican establishment, the democRATS and their propaganda arm the mass media, and especially MSNBC (which I watch just to know what not believe) where everything is a lie attack these great, loyal Americans you can be sure they are the people we need to support!  We grass roots RepublICANS only have the Internet and word of mouth!  Use both every chance you get!  The once great USA is at the edge of the precipice and we have one foot going over!  It will take a mighty effort to save AMERICA!

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday.  If all of us “old farts” have all of the money, then let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after feathering their own nests.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs.  Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire.  Others have been retired for some time.  We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.  We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together.  Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true.  But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age.  Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience.
We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes.  For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators.  A few even remember when cars were started with a crank.  Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many.  But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off.  We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam.  We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so.  We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield.  We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America ; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”  We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.  We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner,  America , and  America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing.  We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it.  It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us.  We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep.  There are those who want to destroy this land
we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.


You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all.  You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting.  Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse.  With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’  Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it.  No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.

This is what you voted for and this is what you got.  We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we are going to take back our nation.  We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2014 we’re going to the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom.  We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.  So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Grey-Haired Brigade.”

This is spot on.  I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on.  I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county.

Can you feel the ground shaking???
It’s not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

All Politicians take a beating in latest polls

National Constitution Center

By Scott Bomboy 1 hour ago

Polling numbers are starting to roll in after last week’s deal in Washington to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. And it looks like the folks on Capitol Hill face some historically bad numbers that could foreshadow a rocky midterm election in 2014.

View gallery



In a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday morning, the backlash seems to be mostly against Republicans, but other recent surveys spread the blame more equally.

The CNN poll said that 31 percent of those surveyed had more faith in House Republicans than President Obama to handle major problems facing the country. In comparison, 44 percent of people had more faith in President Obama.

That is actually a worse number than the GOP received in 1996, when Republicans faced criticism for a government shutdown that featured Speaker Newt Gingrich taking on President Bill Clinton. The bad feelings against the GOP in 1996 were seen as a contributing factor in Bob Dole’s defeat in that year’s election against Clinton.

Also in the CNN poll, 12 percent of people thought Congress was doing a good job, a number near its historic low of 10 percent, which was set last month. Back during the 1995-1996 shutdown, the congressional approval rating stood at 30 percent.

And in two other questions that might concern Republicans, the favorability rating of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was up 4 percentage points from late September, despite headlines about its website problems and withering attacks on the ACA by Republicans.

Americans also are clearly unhappy with John Boehner, with 63 percent saying he should be removed as Speaker of the House.

A Pew Research poll from last week showed low numbers for President Obama and Democrats, as well as the Republicans.

“Approval ratings for President Obama (43 percent approve), Democratic congressional leaders (31 percent) and GOP leaders (20 percent) all are at or near all-time lows, yet are not substantially more negative than they were in early September, a month before the shutdown started,” Pew said.

Pew said the 20 percent approval rating for GOP leaders was driven by unrest among Republicans.

In the Pew survey, 74 percent of Americans wanted to see most members of Congress defeated if they ran for re-election. That is a record in the survey for data gathered back to 1990 about midterm elections. (The previous record was 57 percent in 1996.)

Over at Gallup, polling data released Monday show that President Obama’s approval rating was down after the debt debacle, but not at its historic low.

It stands at 44.5 percent in his 19th quarter as president. In comparison, President George W. Bush had a 43.9 percent rating as the same point in his second term.

During the shutdown, other polls showed growing dissatisfaction with Congress.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll said 60 percent of those Americans surveyed said they would replace the entire Congress in the same election if they could—including their own representative. About 31 percent of those polled blamed Obama for the budget breakdown, while 44 percent blamed Republicans in Congress.

A Fox News poll from October 3 found that the disapproval rating of Congress stood at 81 percent. Fox said 45 percent of Americans had a favorable view of Democrats, in general, with the Republicans stood at 35 percent.

Another Gallup poll showed the favorability of the GOP fell 10 percent between September and October, to 28 percent, its lowest rating since Gallup started asking the question in 1992. The Democrats were down 4 percent to 43 percent for the same time period.

And in a telltale sign, 25 percent of Americans said they didn’t like either party.

About 60 percent of Americans—the same number that would vote out Congress—would favor the creation of a third political party.

I knew he was lying when I saw his lips move!

After listening to Obama’s speech today, and a brief encounter with two Obama worshiper’s, I decided to share the exchange, then add information on how to reach Obama and Reid, and tell them we are on to them, and it is blood on their hands this time! The republicans did all they could to keep the government open. It is the dems that caused this. If the rich corporations can get a one year extension, why can’t the little guy? If congress and their staffs can get financial consideration (because they cannot afford the Obama Un-affordable Health Care act) then how does Obama and his minions figure the average American with his $30,000 a year income can afford it? Those of you that are deluded into thinking Obama care is FREE, WAKE UP!

“You can live in the past if you wish, Richard and Catherine, but that doesn’t help us in the present! To address your incorrect history: Reagan saved the country from a disasterous Jimmy Carter presidency! Clinton’s so called”economic miracle” only happened because republicans Gingrich and Hastert controlled the House of Representatives while he was president. If the dems controlled it at that time, “our current day of disaster” would have come about much sooner. Yes, Bush did his share of screw-ups-but remember until the dems took over congress in January 2007 unemployment and most other indicators were doing quit well!

“Now, to the present: If everyone reading this wants government intrusion into the most personal part of living, do nothing! If you want to stop the UN-affordable Health care act, (called ObamaScare by many) you better write the White House and Harry Reed (LOL) in the Senate telling them, “Give the American people the same extension you gave the rich, billionaire Obama supporters! Also, if the overpaid, princes and princess bums in the beltway of DC can get major discounts & considerations on the cost of ObamaScare, why can’t the little guy?”

On this one the republicans are right, and you, Pres. Barry Soertero Obama are WRONG, Wrong, Wrong!

For an idea starter (use your own words) here is what we sent the clowns in Washington:
“Why can’t you listen to the people and the republicans and give the little guy the same extension
and financial considerations you gave your RICH Billionaire friends, unions and Congressional people.”

How to find them: google The White House and you will follow the comment/contact us buttons and send an email!
Phone “comments” and leave a message 202/456-1111
If you want to speak to a person 202/456-1414
Write: The White House
Pres. Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC 20500 They want you to include an email address if you have one.

Each senator has his own method of contact on line. Harry Reid can be emailed at

Phone Sen. Reid at 202/224-3542

I’ve contacted my two senators telling them to support the House of Representatives, Ted Cruz (202-224-5922), Rand Paul (202-224-4343), Mike Lee (202-224-5444), Marco Rubio (202-224-3041) and the other sane republicans trying to “save the nation from the pits of socialism.” You might want to call and thank these four wonderful “warriors for the people of America!” (If you disagree with Rubio on immigration, it’s a good chance to tell him, after the praise for standing up against the UN-affordable Health Care Act.)

The only value in looking back in history is to avoid making the same mistakes. Currently, it appears the repubs are leaning that lesson, and the dems are ignoring it! If you don’t believe me look at the cities and states run by democrats over the last 20 years, compared to the well run cities and states run by republican governors. Why hasn’t Washington learned socialism doesn’t work?

Back to the present.  I’ve been on medicare for some time now, but the last time I was employed I believe the cost of insurance for my family of four was about what the Obama plan is going to be for an individual.  In case you haven’t had a chance to see how much it will cost you if you are under 65, take a look at this chart and article:

Obamacare may be a national health law, but it has a different price tag in each state.

Americans under age 65 who buy insurance through the new health exchanges starting Oct. 1 will pay the most in Wyoming and the least in Minnesota, according to data released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services officials.

The report analyzed rates in 47 states and Washington, D.C., including those already released by states running their own exchanges, as well as prices in 36 states where the federal government is running the marketplace. Hawaii, Kentucky and Massachusetts have yet to disclose their rates.

Minnesota has the lowest unsubsidized prices—and is the only state where middle-tier “silver” plans come in at under $200 a month. Monthly premiums for the state’s cheapest “bronze” plan (the lowest tier of coverage) average $144. In Wyoming, meanwhile, the cheapest bronze plans average $425, and silver plans start at $489. Across the country, bronze plans start on average at $249, and silver plans start at $310. (Among people eligible for subsidies, however, premiums will vary by income.)

Exchanges will also offer higher gold- and platinum-tier plans, but those will compete less on price than on quality, insurance consultants say. And government officials say 56% of the currently uninsured will be able to pay $100 or less per month after factoring in federal subsidies.

Excluding subsidies, a comparison of the premiums to the Congressional Budget Office’s earlier projections of $392 per month for the second-cheapest silver plan (on which government subsidies are based) shows that on average plans are costing 16% less. Indeed, the average price of the plan in Minnesota is only $192, or less than half of the projected amount. But the monthly cost is higher than the $392 estimate in seven states, topping $400 in Alaska, Connecticut, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, Vermont and Wyoming. The latter’s $516 price tag on the second-lowest-priced silver plan is nearly 32% higher than the forecast (see chart below).

Proponents of the health-care law say the data show that this new insurance not only covers services individual plans currently don’t, but, in the words of Kevin Lucia, a research professor at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms, “the premiums are definitely coming out more reasonably than anyone thought.”

Prices will still vary significantly by age, though. The HHS report is based on average costs for a 27-year-old, which are lower than what older people will pay. The overall state averages include everyone under 65, so younger Americans will likely pay less. In Oklahoma, for example, average monthly premiums for the lowest-cost bronze plan is only $114 for a 27-year-old, but the state average for the same plan is $60 more.

In general, states where more insurers are competing have lower rates, says Gary Cohen, deputy administrator and director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. States with average premiums in the lowest quartile had an average of eight insurance companies participating, while states with average premiums in the highest quartile only had three, according to the HHS report.

Exchanges in states with few insurers participating tend to be the most expensive. For example, Wyoming, the most expensive, and Alaska, the second-most expensive, each have just two insurance carriers competing for customers. New Jersey, which has four competing carriers, has prices slightly lower, followed by Delaware and South Dakota, where three insurance companies are participating in each state.

“The more vendors that are competing, the lower the rates are going to be,” says John Haslinger, vice president of ADP Strategic Advisory Services. But rates could also be higher in certain regions, he adds, because those areas have more people with pre-existing conditions and health risks, which in turn could deter insurers from competing.

NOTE: Premiums shown above are a weighted average of the lowest-cost silver plan, the second lowest cost silver plan, and the lowest cost bronze plan in each rating area within the 36 Supported State-based Marketplaces, State Partnership Marketplaces and Federally Facilitated Marketplaces as of Sept. 18, as well as 12 State-based Marketplaces. The rating area weights are constructed based on county-level population under the age of 65. For State-based Marketplaces, premiums are a weighted average across all rating areas for California and New York, and are for the entire state in Rhode Island and Vermont and in D.C. For the remaining states, premiums are for the following rating areas: Denver, Colo.; Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven, Conn.; Baltimore, Md.; Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Portland, Ore.; and Seattle, Wash.  Age weighting for all states is based on expected age distribution in the marketplaces, estimated by the RAND Corporation.

How to Survive ObamaScare-The Making Health Care Unaffordable Act!

I I find it funny when I hear people praise ObamaSCare!  They actually think it not going to cost anything.  Too bad Americans just take as gospel what they hear and read in the media.  The book below was very interesting, and explained some of my misconceptions, but
opened my eyes to the real destructive force of ObamaSCare.  Keep in mind, we are only starting to pay for this monstrosity, and in 2014 will start pay much more of the costs.  By 2020, no one will be able to afford it, if we don’t stop it NOW!
My brother told me in order to keep his wife on his insurance where he works, it is going to cost him an additional $800 this year. What will it be in 2014, when we really start paying for this terrible bill that no one “read until it was passed!”
Read the article about CVS, then the letter below that from “Newsmax.”

CVS Demonstrates Your Future Under Obamacare


The consequences of the big lie that is Obamacare and the U.S. deathcare system continue to come to light. From layoffs to hour reductions to business closures to companies being dragged into court over abortion and contraceptive coverage to doctor shortages to rising deathcare costs, Obamacare is a building disaster of rising premiums, doctor shortages and rationing death panels. Now, legal drug pusher CVS Caremark pharmacy is telling its employees they must report specific personal health information or pay an extra $600 per year for their health insurance coverage.

Among the measures employees are required to report are their weight, body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Employees must also be tobacco-free or enroll in an addiction program.

“These changes aren’t just about costs, they’re about us, each of us taking personal accountability for our own health,” said Lisa Bissacia, CVS senior vice president and chief human resources officer, in a recorded video released by the company.

The irony that a company that peddles to an unsuspecting public pharmaceuticals with a list of side effects as long as your arm and responsible for millions of adverse reaction events and 106,000 deaths annually would actually be concerned about their employees’ health is no doubt lost on Bissacia. On top of that, such a policy is an egregious violation of the employees’ rights.

Employment lawyer Richard Schramm told KPIX 5 News: “(CVS Executives) better get some pretty good legal counsel and decide whether your policy is really legal, because the policy as announced is not legal.”

Schramm told KPIX 5 the company is trying to tell employees what they can and can’t do on their off time.

“If we granted that right to employers, employers could tell employees who to date, who to see, what kinds of foods to eat, what to drink, all kinds of behavior off site could be controlled. And that’s absolutely not the law in California,” he said. Nor anywhere else, except maybe Florida.

“The approach they’re taking is based on the assumption that somehow these people need a whip, they need to be penalized in order to make themselves healthy,” Patient Privacy Rights founder Deborah Peel, M.D., told ABC News.

For the company’s many low-wage in-store employees, it’s essentially blackmail. There’s no way they can absorb an additional $50 per month increase in premiums, so they’ll have to comply.

And what will CVS do with the information? Not to worry; CVS won’t have access to the personal information. It will be given to WebMD.

And therein lies another rub. WebMD is a major propaganda arm of Big Pharma, and Big Pharma and the health insurance cartel wrote the Obamacare law. Drug criminal Eli Lilly was an original investor of WebMD. Eli Lilly has repeatedly been cited, fined and successfully sued for illegal and deceptive marketing, covering up the harmful effects of its drugs and buying the influence of doctors and regulatory agencies (as have all the major drug manufacturers).

WebMD uses subliminal sales tactics to peddle drugs, including harmful psychotropics, according to research by

Lilly is not the only pharma company receiving unmarked product placement on WebMD.

Last summer, a video featured a woman patient confessing she was fearful of life while a voice over said she needed treatment for “general anxiety disorder” and the camera showed bottles of Forest Pharmaceuticals’ antidepressant Lexapro moving down the manufacturer’s assembly line. Get it? No disclaimer on the video or “sponsored content” appeared.

Another unsponsored WebMD video last summer urged people on antidepressants to remain on their therapy “despite side effects” and a third suggested women concerned about cancer, heart attack and stroke risks of postmenopausal hormone therapy should continue their treatment at lowered doses. Hang in there, valued customers.

Also on WebMD is a “depression test.” The test is rigged and the questions framed to elicit “yes” answers to all the questions. But even after answering “no” to all the questions, you are told, “You may be at risk for major depression.” So everyone taking the test is depressed, according to test sponsor Eli Lilly.

As Joseph Mercola, M.D., writes on his site, WebMD and its subsidiaries claim to be independent, but how independent and objective can a company be with its health recommendations when one of its major investors is a drug company?

For example, (WebMD subsidiary) has the following statement at the bottom of every web page:

“ provides free, accurate and independent advice on more than 24,000 prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines & natural products.”

And yet is owned by WebMD, which has close ties to Big Pharma, and recommends drugs for their advertisers and pharmaceutical partners…

Also counted among its financial backers are producers of harmful processed foods — the type that contain artificial “fruits” that can be, according to the Food and Drug Administration, peddled as fruits. Curiously, or maybe not, there is no mention of natural alternatives and supplements. So much for preaching a healthy lifestyle.

WebMD also has a partnership with the FDA, the first-ever public-private partnership for the agency. Why? To be the agency’s major propaganda arm. WebMD and its subsidiaries are four of the top 10 most-visited health information sites on the Internet.

WebMD’s own announcement stated:

The partnership will enhance the FDA’s ability to get crucial information to the American public, FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach, MD, said in a news conference.

… “WebMD has been a leader with regard to innovation in the use of the web as a form of communication and service to the public,” von Eschenbach said. “What we will do by virtue of this partnership … is to really be able to present online … content material we at FDA feel is extremely important for consumers to be aware of as they are making critically important decisions for themselves and for their families about their health and the products that they use to ensure their health.”

Of course, the FDA is co-opted and owned by Big Pharma and regularly provides cover for the pharmaceutical companies to peddle drugs with harmful side effects — sometimes for a period of years — until the lawsuits mount to such an extent that the agency is forced to require them be pulled from the market. The drug manufacturers then pay a big fine and/or settlement and move on to the next case, raking in billions of dollars in the meantime on drugs that treat symptoms and create more diseases in a never-ending cycle.

Now, back to WebMD and how it might use the information obtained on CVS’s 161,500 employees.

According to WebMD’s privacy policy, it won’t share any of the information it has on you, with the following exceptions:

  • To comply with legal requirements, such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order;
  • To our vendors and suppliers in the course of their provision of products or services to WebMD;
  • In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a merger, a sale of assets, or bankruptcy; or
  • In special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others.

So CVS employees can expect their personal information to be shared far and wide. There can be no expectation of privacy and the data can be used by anyone — government included.

With government running healthcare, expect programs like this to expand and the information to be used to force behavior modifications for everyone forced to buy into Obamacare.

But look on the bright side. Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg could head the new Federal Agency of Behavior Modification. Telling people how to live their lives seems right up his alley. He’ll be available come November.​m (
