  • Nut-Job Obama Supporters Believe Healthcare.Gov Disaster Is Part Of Right Wing Conspiracy With Actual Tweets Steve Watson Oct 22, 2013 Tin-foil hats at the ready as Obamanoids declare Koch brothers are behind healthcare glitches Obama supporters are simply refusing to believe that Obamacare could be anything short of world beating, with many blaming the glitch ridden rollout of on a nefarious right wing conspiracy to sabotage the Affordable Care Act. Many Obama supporters have taken to social media to float the notion that the Koch brothers, Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire industrialists, are funding an army of techies and hackers to somehow infiltrate and take down the website.
  • Of course, there is no actual evidence, and the notion is based purely on the fact that Koch brothersfunded groups including Americans for Prosperity, Pacific Research Institute, and Center to Protect Patient Rights, have steadfastly opposed Obamacare, favoring a free-market approach. The conspiracy also extends to the GOP and the Tea Party, who, according to some Obama supporters, staged the government shutdown to distract from the monumental success that would otherwise have been the Obamacare launch.
  • The principal owners of Koch Industries, the second largest privately owned company in the United States, are often the target of strange left wing conspiracy theories because they plough a great deal of their money into conservative and libertarian policy and advocacy groups in the US, and routinely speak out against politicians and policies they deem to be anti free-market or free-enterprise.
  • Of course, these baseless theories do not take into account the fact that many experts involved with the construction of the website have revealed exactly why it is so riddled with glitches. As reported by TechDirt, tech experts and those within the insurance industry who had access long before the failed launch of the website have said that the problems have arisen from the fact that, besides the $634,320,919 in taxpayer money that was invested to construct, the website was built by political cronies, rather than by Internet native companies and individuals with any experience of building and maintaining large-scale, public-facing web-based apps. Robert Laszewski, a consultant with clients in the healthcare industry participating in the new exchange, said insurance companies were complaining “loudly” that the site had experienced problems before the launch. “People were pulling out their hair,” he told The Washington Post last week, also calling for a complete shutdown and rebuild, because “Things are worse behind the curtain than in front of it”. The New York Times reported that Henry Chao, described as “the chief digital architect for the Obama administration’s new online insurance marketplace,” was “deeply worried about the web site’s debut” way back in March. Chao commented that he hoped Obamacare would not amount to “a third-world experience.” It is now thoroughly documented that senior White House officials probably knew that the site was not ready when it was launched. The firm that built the website, Canadian company CGI, has a long history of failures, cost overruns, and conflicts of interest, including canceled contracts to build health care databases in the provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick. The company also failed to deliver on a contract for a hi-tech registry for the then-Liberal Canadian government’s gun control program. After going ”significantly over budget” and failing to meet deadlines, the end product CGI supplied was faulty and never functioned correctly.

  • Sebelius: I'm Not Signing Up For Obamacare By Susan Jones October 23, 2013 In an interview with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta Tuesday night, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she won't be enrolling in the problem-plagued health insurance system that she was charged to implement. "I have created an account on the site. I have not tried signing up, because I have insurance," she told Gupta. But Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says government officials like Sebelius should be required to live under the same laws they impose on everyone else. Paul is now plugging a constitutional amendment that states, "Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress." The amendment also contains two provisions that apply that same principle to the Executive Branch and Judicial Branch of the federal government. Appearing on Fox News Tuesday evening, Paul told Sean Hannity he thinks this is an amendment "that really everybody ought to be able to agree to." "There have been a lot of times in our history -- originally, congressional members were exempt from Social Security. That's not true now because people got mad about it. But really, the law should be applied equally to everyone," Paul said. "I think that's a basic precept of the law. So I really think maybe we'll get some bipartisanship on this and maybe we'll get it passed." Asked if she found it "challenging" to create her account, Sebelius admitted that she did: "Well, I think there certainly are some challenges. It could be smoother. It could be easier to access. And that's really what we're working on." Sebelius said "no one could be more frustrated than I am, and the president, that this isn't smooth." She also said President Obama first became aware of the problems "fairly early on," in the first few
  • days of the Oct. 1 online rollout. "Not before October first?" Gupta asked. "No, sir," Sebelius said. She said in an ideal situation, her department would have had more time to get the job done -- and would have used every minute of it: "And if we had an ideal situation and could have built the product in, you know, a five-year period of time, we probably would have taken five years. But we didn't have five years. And certainly Americans who rely on health coverage didn't have five years for us to wait. We wanted to make sure we made good on this final implementation of the law. And, again, people can sign up. The call center is open for business... "Sebelius: I’m Not Signing Up For Obamacare VIDEO BELOW Obama Asks Americans To “Be A Part Of Team Obamacare” Steve Watson Oct 22, 2013 Offers psychological reward for loyal subjects if they help push government healthcare on their families The Obama administration is fully aware that one should never let a good disaster go to waste, which is why the President is using the website meltdown as a fundraising tool, and a way of encouraging more of his supporters to volunteer their time to push his agenda. “By now, you’ve probably heard that the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to,” Obama told his supporters in an address sent out late Tuesday.
  • “That’s why I need your help,” he said, in a bizarre video pitch that links to an online fundraiser being pushed by the pro-Obama political advocacy group Organizing for Action. “The other side has already spent a whopping $400 million in anti-Obamacare TV ads,” the fundraiser site notes. “We don’t have to beat that, but we need to have the resources to fight back. Make a donation to support OFA today.” In the video, which is almost as cringingly embarrassing as his infomercial speech on Monday, the president even promises that supporters can become “part of Team Obamacare”, adding “I’m asking you to help tell your friends, families, coworkers, classmates, neighbors and anyone else what the Affordable Care Act can mean for them.” President Obama: The Affordable Care Act is More than a Website VIDEO BELOW That’s correct, Obama is offering his pavlovian subjects a psychological reward for their efforts to push his socialized healthcare project on their friends and families. “Remember, nobody ever expected this would be easy — change never is… [but] I’m absolutely confident that we will finish the job of making health care in the country not just a privilege for a fortunate few, but a right for all Americans to enjoy,” he notes, without covering the fact that hundreds of thousands of Americans are about to have their health insurance plans cancelled due to Obamacare. Many more will see premiums INCREASE rather than go down. The video campaign comes with the news that the White House is planning an aggressive “blitz” of rollout events across the country.
  • Obamacare: Failure And Fascism Kurt Nimmo October 23, 2013 A magnificent example of crony capitalism at work Far too many Americans still believe the myth that the president of the United States is in charge of the government and knows when things go wrong. The myth was trounced this week after the Health and Human Services boss, Kathleen Sebelius, went before the camera with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta. Part 1 of 2 - Dr. Sanjay Gupta Grills Sebelius Over Obamacare, Site Glitches, Resigning VIDEO BELOW Gutpa asked Sebelius when Obama first learned of the massive problems with the so-called Affordable Care website. She said he knew about the problems “the first couple of days” after the site went live October 1. “But not before that?” Gupta asked. “No, sir,” Sebelius responded. “We’re not at all satisfied with the workings of the website,” Sebelius said. “We want it to be smooth and easy and let consumers’ compare plans.” Smooth and easy, however, are anathema when it comes to pretty much everything the government does short of blowing up small nations and killing school children with high-tech cruise missiles and drones. In the real world where careless mistakes can sink a business, new websites are routinely beta tested. Websites are sent outside companies for real-world exposure and testing before they are presented to the public.
  • The government performed a beta test, of sorts, prior to rolling out the Obamacare website. Upon discovering that it was not ready for primetime – it broke after several hundred people attempted to use it simultaneously – they pushed the site live with disastrous result. – an oxymoron if ever there was one – froze up shortly after midnight on October 1 when 2,000 users tried to use it. In the business world, an inept and clueless boss like Kathleen Sebelius would be told to clean out her desk in the wake of such an expensive disaster. But because she is a high level government bureaucrat and a dedicated Obama apparatchik, chances are remote that she will lose her job. It is said Obamacare has all the charm and effectiveness of a Soviet bread market. Obama’s “ACA will in fact create a ‘market.’ But the market will be a federally controlled and federally regulated oligopoly and will therefore resemble the Soviet Union bread market,” writes Bill Butler. “Government will determine who is an authorized provider and will therefore determine (and therefore limit) supply. Government will also determine who is an authorized payer (only authorized insurers and the government itself through Medicare and Medicaid) and therefore limit ‘demand.’” Missed in all the criticism of Obamacare and the hardly surprising sinking of its flagship website is the fact that the whole thing is designed to fail. It is a magnificent example of crony capitalism at work. Ross Douthat cites Jonathan Cohn in, of all places, the New York Times: The system’s sustainability depends on getting enough healthy people to sign up, he pointed out, and if they don’t then insurers “will have to raise everyone’s premiums,” which “could create what actuaries call a ‘death spiral’: Rising premiums prompt people to drop out, causing premiums to increase even more.” Out of the fog surrounding the botching of appears the real reason for the crash and burn of the website in the microcosm and the ultimate failure of project Obamacare in the macrocosm: it will raise profits hand-over-fist for transnational insurance corporations. This is the reason Obamacare was created – not to take care of the health of the people, but to foist yet another fleecing upon them, one enforced at gunpoint by the IRS expropriation agency. This is fascism at its most advanced stage. As Mussolini noted before the partisans strung him up, fascism is the merging of the state and corporations. Thus Obamacare is fascism writ large. White House Staffer Fired For Notorious AntiAdministration Twitter Account October 23, 2013 A senior US National Security Council staffer has been fired for using an anonymous Twitter account to send hundreds of messages criticizing the Obama administration from inside the White House. Jofi Joseph, a director in the nuclear non-proliferation team inside the NSC, was let go a week ago after administration officials spent months investigating who was tweeting from @natsecwonk. The account opened in February 2011 and lasted until last week, sending thousands of tweets critical of Obama’s policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and various high level officials in the interim.
  • Two sources in the administration confirmed to The Daily Beast that Joseph, 40, was behind the account. The staffer was a member of the NSC team that sat across the negotiating table from Iran in Istanbul earlier this year. “Is it just me, or with the Jews celebrating Rosh Hashanah tonight, is Twitter much quieter?” he once wrote. “What’s so disturbing about the Hillary dancing photo is the high-def resolution of Ben Rhodes’ balding pate. And Jake Sullivan behind him,” another read, referencing US President Obama’s deputy national security advisor and speechwriter as well as Vice President Joe Biden’s national security advisor. One tweet said simply: “Has shitty staff #ObamaInThreeWords.” Authorities’ search for @natsecwonk truly heated up when Joseph began espousing doubt over the official account regarding the September 11, 2011 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Daily Beast reported that he was fired at about the time the Twitter feed shutdown last week. Joseph also took aim at prominent Republicans, once tweeting: “So when will someone do us the favor of getting rid of Sarah Palin and the rest of her white trash family? What utter useless garbage…” “Vitriol against @AriFleischer entirely justified,” one said. “He married a woman a decade younger than him – and she’s as ugly as he is! #jackass” The now-former staffer previously refused to tell Politico reporter Glenn Thrush whether he was the one behind the account, calling the question “ridiculous” and that the conversation could hurt his ability to get a new job. “It has been a privilege to serve in this administration and I deeply regret violating the trust and confidence placed in me,” Joseph told Politico. “What started out as an intended parody account of DC culture developed over time into a series of inappropriate and mean-spirited comments. I bear complete responsibility for this affair and I sincerely apologize to everyone I insulted.” INFOWARS.COM BECAUSE THERE'S A WAR ON FOR YOUR MIND
