AARP Corrects Obama: It Has Not Endorsed Health Care Reform Package at CNS News
The AARP, the nation’s largest advocacy group for seniors, corrected a statement by President Barack Obama yesterday that indicated the group was “endorsing” the health-care plan being developed in Congress. “We have the AARP on board because they know this is a good deal for our seniors,” Obama said at one point. AARP Chief Operating Officer Tom Nelson issued a statement saying that the organization has not endorsed any legislation.  “While the President was correct that AARP will not endorse a health care reform bill that would reduce Medicare benefits, indications that we have endorsed any of the major health care reform bills currently under consideration in Congress are inaccurate,” Nelson said. 
Well.. OK… Check out this video of the AARP meeting held in Dallas a week or so ago:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoMNDdQ1_h0
Problem is AARP stopped being advocates of seniors when they became an insurance company… but many do not realize this. Sure does explain the attitude of their spokesperson here, huh?

(House Un-American Activities Committee) HUAC is Back! at CNS News
http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=52322
When the Soviet Union was threatening to bury the United States this was big stuff. The U.S. House of Representatives even had a whole committee devoted to nothing but sniffing out McCarthy’s Commies. It was called the House Un-American Activities Committee: HUAC. In 1947, this was the committee which held hearings into the influence of communists in Hollywood. Called before the committee to testify about who else might be a Communist was the end of a career in acting, directing or writing because the studios simply refused to hire someone who was connected to the Red Scare. So, Nancy and Steny have resurrected those glory days of demonizing dissent by calling those who are attending town halls and announcing their opposition to the nationalization of our health care system (whether that’s what is in the bills or not) “un-American.” Let’s go to the rule book. The Constitution of the United States. Says here in the very first Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Note the construct of this Amendment. Each of the freedoms is separated by the word “or:” Religion, speech, press … Then look at the last clause: “… or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” The petitioning the government for a redress of grievances is part of the right of the people to peaceably assemble. Ok, you say, but is shouting at a town hall “peaceably” assembling? Who is going to make that call? How loud is too loud? When does too loud become no longer “peaceable” and thus un-American?  Do union hires pounding on the bottoms of large plastic tubs for hours on end to protest a non-union construction project in downtown DC count as “peaceably” assembling? Or are they un-American?  And the “facts themselves?” The facts themselves are Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer sent their caucus home without a clue as to what they were supposed to be selling.  So, what Pelosi and Hoyer really want is to have Americans accept anything the Federal government chooses to impose upon us with no dissent, no discussion, no pesky First Amendment. That, my friends, sounds un-American. Maybe we do need to bring back HUAC. 
We’ve been focusing on HR3200.. Now let’s look at Senate Bill 703 
Thanks to Dr. Jan at Country Doctor for taking the time and using her expertise to help us decifer the purposely ambiguous and confusing language in these bills.

 Obama Failed to Master Alinsky’s Rule #12 by American Thinker

Alinsky’s 12th Rule of Tactics:  The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying, ‘You’re right – we don’t know what to do about this issue.  Now you tell us.’
Why is President Barack Obama suddenly drowning in a sea of widespread resistance to his centerpiece legislation?  Because it has now become quite clear to Harry & Louise Q Citizen that this was a man without a “constructive alternative” to the out-of-control healthcare system he has badgered and rhetorically beaten bloody to a pulp. Obama himself, Organizer in Chief, had no plan.  He proposed no plan to Congress.  He has let committee after committee of witless tax-and-spend, haggard old liberals write the convoluted mess they’re calling healthcare reform, and has virtually done nothing for own his part but bash the insurance companies, the doctors and even the patients, who ask for individual control over their own life-and-death choices. This, dear readers, is the fundamental difference between an empty-suited celebrity and a nuts-and-bolts executive:  flim-flam artistry vs. substance and real results.
  
In Congo, Hillary Clinton Suggests Government Ownership of Industry Would be a Good Thing at CNS News
How can you help this country?” Christian Lusakueno of the Congolese television station Raga TV asked Clinton.“The future of this country is up to the Congolese people,” said Clinton. “The choices as to what direction you go are truly yours to make. “For example, the country has an extremely rich reservoir of natural resources,” she continued. “Right now, the benefits from those resources are not ending up broadly developing the country. They are either being taken out of the country or they are ending up in the hands of a very few people. There are models for what has worked elsewhere. The model that Botswana used when it discovered diamonds–it made sure there was a trust fund created for the country so that all of the money didn’t leave the country. In order to let a company like De Beers exploit their diamonds, they said we want to own 20 percent of the company. And as a result, if you go to Botswana, you see good roads, you see clean water, because the people and their leaders said we’re not going to be exploited and we’re not going to let the benefits end up in a very few hands.” Brett Schaefer, a fellow in International Regulatory Affairs at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said of Clinton’s statement: “Her phrasing was extremely clumsy.” “I think it’s probably a mistake to urge the government to have a control, or a controlling stake, in these types of industries because government historically, especially in Africa, has been particularly prone to corruption and mismanagement,” said Schaefer.
 
Michigan’s Own Debbie Stabenow – Aren’t we proud? (not so much)
 “Climate change is very real. Global warming creates volatility and I feel it when I’m flying. The storms are more volatile.”
This explains a lot !  We wonder why the state is in such bad shape – duh??????

News for 08/02/2009-Nothing Is What It Seems

Posted on August 2, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Does AARP Think It’s OK to Kill Granny? Where is the Voice of ACLU on Cars.gov?  Why is the left silent? The more time passes the more I realize NOTHING is about what it seems to be about! Government is smoke and mirrors and EVERYONE needs to pay attention! Unless of course communist America is ok with you.

Cars.gov includes disclaimer they are able to track all your internet moves, computer files forever, just for logging on. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jeff-poor/2009/07/31/beck-exposes-cash-clunkers-language-giving-feds-authority-take-control-co “Here is Cars.gov. Let’s say you go in, if I understand this right – I go in and I say, ‘I want to turn in my clunker.’ The dealer goes to Cars.gov, and then they hit submit transaction. Here it says, ‘Privacy Act & Security Statement,’ and you’re just like, ‘Oh, it’s the Privacy Act of 1974. Whatever, I agree. Now, this is how bad this system is.” “A warning box comes up, and it says, ‘This application provides to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a federal computer system and it is property of the United States government,'” Beck read. “‘Any and all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign.'” Kimberly Guilfoyle, a legal analyst for Fox News interpreted the language to mean the government has very broad authority over your computer – including the ability to seize personal and private information.

Senate Bill SB-2009 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It may require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun. This bill was introduced on Feb.. 24. This bill will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law. This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all. The full text of the proposed amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage, http://www.senate.gov/ You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2009. You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please tell every gun owner you know. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, a physician, appointed to Obama health care job admits killing old people is the only way to cut costs! http://www.nypost.com/php/pfriendly/print.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nypost.com%2Fseven%2F07242009%2Fpostopinion%2Fopedcolumnists%2Fdeadly_doctors_180941.htm

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. He has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts will not be pain-free. “Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’ cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change,” he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008). Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, “as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others” (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). Yes, that’s what patients want their doctors to do. But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else. Emanuel, however, believes that “communitarianism” should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia” (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. ’96). Translation: Don’t give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson’s or a child with cerebral palsy. He explicitly defends discrimination against older patients: “Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years” (Lancet, Jan. 31). The bills being rushed through Congress will be paid for largely by a $500 billion-plus cut in Medicare over 10 years. Knowing how unpopular the cuts will be, the president’s budget director, Peter Orszag, urged Congress this week to delegate its own authority over Medicare to a new, presidentially-appointed bureaucracy that wouldn’t be accountable to the public.
