‘Death Panels’: Here’s the Deal

In Can You Hear Me Now?, Obamacare, Obamarama on 22/03/2011 at 18:55

That little ditz Sarah Palin was right again. Just when you were convinced he didn’t want to give granny an early sendoff to the Big Sayonara, Barack’s other shoe drops. Death panels are here.

Whether you call it an end-of-life counseling contingency or a mandatory Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), death panels are a cleverly hidden reality within the trillion-dollar government snafu we all affectionately know as ObamaCare. In fact, end of life counseling—perhaps a better term is “end-of-life lotto”—isn’t the half of it.

Even some Democrats are jumping ship on this one.

The Daily Caller:

An often-overlooked portion of President Barack Obama’s prized health care law, the creation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), will face heat in the coming months from Congress and from the courts. Congressman Phil Roe, Tennessee Republican, told The Daily Caller the IPAB is the “real death panel” in the health care law, as compared to “end-of-life counseling” provisions in Obamacare that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin once deemed “death panels.”

“This one is the real baby right here – and most people missed this,” Roe told TheDC. “What everybody was talking about, when you saw Sarah Palin and so forth, what they were talking about these advanced directives where you sit down and there’s sort of mandatory counseling – and Medicare paid for it. This IPAB got missed – and it’s the real death panel.”

In his exclusive interview in today’s DC, Congressman Coe, who is a medical doctor, goes onto say that the IPAB will cap total sums Medicare recipients can receive for care, and thus make decisions based purely on cost rather than need options.

Palin has been lambasted in the media for months on end since 2009 when she warned the nation that the President’s takeover of national health care would result in what essentially amounts to death panels. The blogosphere is still loaded with slanderous lies.

Palin was speaking of the so-called “end of life counseling” panels, but the congressman is talking about another board that will essentially accomplish the same end; i.e. kill off seniors and others with “low quality of life” prospects by denying essential care.

Both schemes are still embedded within the bowels of ObamaCare.

The intent here is self-evident. While Democrats in Congress would like you to believe that Nanny State governance will put you on the road to cheaper insurance rates, it in fact will put you on the gurney to a Margaret Sanger-style liquidation mill. What’s next, “Soylent Green”?

Be assured, this is not the end of it. When the lid finally comes off ObamaCare it will be rife with “quality of life” panels and boards, all designed to give you a quick sendoff in your twilight years.

Where is Charlton Heston when we need him!

New Pigford Documentary: Another Multi-Billion Dollar Grift

In Bowling for Dollars, Civil Lefts, Disappearing Ink, Obamarama on 12/02/2011 at 18:46

Grifter in Chief

Further evidence of fraud by Andrew Breitbart in the Pigford reparations scandal should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the story. Now Lee Stranahan, whom Breitbart brought in from the Huffington Post to double check his facts, is on board with an upcoming documentary that will expose organizational wrongdoing in the case.

In other words, not only did thousands of un-entitled claimants file for damages, but they may have been encouraged and told how to successfully file those fraudulent claims by the organizations that set up the scam.

Stranahan and Breitbart presented a video at a CPAC presser yesterday that will eventually become part of a larger documentary; it includes undercover audio that indicates a conspiracy to commit fraud by the head of at least one Democrat-supported nonprofit.

Rep. Michele Bachmann introduced Breitbart who in turn brought on Stranahan and GOP Rep. Steve King from Iowa. King, who has been investigating Pigford II since 2008, has been smeared as a racist by the left for describing the scheme as a Trojan horse for slavery reparations.

Does any of this sound familiar?

A disturbing pattern is emerging here that indicates far more than the multibillion-dollar Pigford theft of taxpayer dollars. Put it together with the massive 2009 ACORN scandal and recent revelations of corruption within Planned Parenthood, and we begin to see a much-repeated, criminal modus operandi within Democrat-supported nonprofits.

Stranahan—who is not a conservative—has laid out a scathing indictment against Pigford II; he has not only exposed widespread corruption on the part of lawmakers and liberal nonprofits, but also suggests further intentional disregard by the national media, after similar abuses were expose in the ACORN and Planned Parenthood scandals.

More shockingly, it appears that President Obama himself may have been knowingly involved in this fraud from the very beginning, as a United States senator. Lots of luck making it stick but it certainly appears that way.

With the revelation this week by former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel that he supports slavery reparations, and President Obama’s outright prevarication to Bill O’Reilly that he is not for wealth redistribution, it is clear that this administration will stop at nothing to promote its socialist agenda.

In 1972, a couple of cub reporters at the Washington Post brought down an American presidency for a little two-bit burglary at the Watergate; you’d think a multibillion-dollar grift by this president would at least attract a sidebar.

BOMB IN TIMES SQUARE

Evacuation In Times Square - Daily News

While President Obama was busy bombing at the White House Correspondents Dinner tonight, someone was apparently planting a potentially devastating explosive device in Times Square.

Reuters – An apparent failed car bomb in a vehicle that was smoking and emitted a small “flash” caused police to evacuate New York’s Times Square as bomb specialists worked to dismantle the device on Saturday night, Broadway’s busiest night. (Read Story)

How many does this make on Obama’s watch?

June 1, 2009: Little Rock, AR – Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, a Muslim, with ‘religious motives’ shoots a local soldier to death inside a recruiting center.

November 5, 2009: Ft. Hood, TX – An Army Muslim psychiatrist, Nidal Malik Hasan, guns down thirteen unarmed soldiers and wounds over 40 more while yelling praises to Allah.

December 25, 2009: Detroit, MI – An Algerian Muslim trained in Yemen gains entrance into US and attempts to detonate a bomb onboard a trans-Atlantic flight and is subdued by passengers and crew.

February 19, 2010: Fort Jackson Five; South Carolina Five Muslims were arrested in an alleged plot to poison food supplies at Fort Jackson. The Army was quick to do containment on this story and little is knows about what actually transpired.

Between the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon and the end of Bush’s final term, his administration thwarted 19 terrorist attacks on US soil. Not one attack was successful in taking human life.

It is not known at this hour if this most recent act was a hoax, a domestic attack carried out by non-Muslim, or another attempt by Islamic jihadists. What is known is that by the grace of God the device didn’t detonate.

Whether it was domestic non-Muslim or a failed Islamic attack, does it matter? Just how many passes does this President give Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano?

And, Barack, don’t let us down. When you catch these guys, let’s try them in New York City.
