… Fibaroni [ObamaCrapCare – related] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 20th,2013

.. the ObamaCraps propagated the Big Lie on your doctor , your insurance , and your medicine . Back in 2010 , they knew very well that millions of people were going to lose their insurance ….

.. [link] to the videos ..

.. then they proceeded to repeat the lie , over and over again ..

.. In the coming year [2014] , it will get worse . Much worse . The business market is going to subject to the same problems that that the indivdual health insurance market is going through , now . The requirements of ObamaCrapCare [the essential benefits packages , the regulations , the med loss ratio invasion , among many] are going to make what is going on this fall look like a garden party , by comparison . Guess What is also coming up ?

.. the 2014 Congressional midterm elections . The economy is not in the best of shape , the job market sucks , inflation could well take off , and the federales are monkeying around with people ‘ s health care — just in time for the Midterms . The DemoCraps are running scared , especially in districts and states that are at least decently competitive .

.. It will help the GOP to gain seats in the House of Representatives . How many , God knows . The Senate is in play , though . 3 to 4 seats , net , are likely to flip to the GOP , meaning the Republicans need at least 3 more seats (net) to take over the Senate . The way things are going , it could be a whole lot more than that …

… ObamaCrapCare enrollments are in the Toilet …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 20th,2013

.. so , His Lordship makes another unilateral change ?

.. It appears that POTUS & Co have made another unilateral change to ObamaCrapCare . They did it once again without any consultation with or the agreement of Congress . As is supposed to be done under our Constitution …

.. Those who have lost their insurance policies under ObamaCrapCare have been made temporarily exempt from the individual mandate . I believe that it does not apply to those folks who have lost their policies this year [2013] … I think that the ObamaCraps have the folks who will lose their policies in the coming year [2014] in mind . It is not only that …

.. They have now been made (somehow) eligible for the catastrophic insurance policies . These policies were supposed to only be open to those under 30 years of age . Now , those catastrophic policies will be open to many , many more people . Not just several hundred thousand people , though . It will result in millions being made eligible for those policies …

.. Remember , it is not just this year (2013) that is in mind , but 2014 as well . I can imagine the insurance companies are just going to love this . Another unilateral change that screws with the metrics of their business ….
if it keeps up , then , sooner or later , it is going to cause one or more companies to withdraw further from the states , in order to preserve their remaining business , and concentrate on the state(s) where these folks are the strongest …

.. Over in Europe , it seems that the abortion debate is going on just as fiercely as it is here in the United States . However , you do not see people descerating Catholic churches here , stateside . Not in a million years . Anyone participating in such a stunt here would be roundly condemned , not to mention sued in court , and criminally prosecuted .

.. Not over there . The femiNazis marched into a local Italian cathedral [in Bologna , I think] and hung a banner carrying forth their blasphemous viewpoints , and defaming the cathedral in the process .

.. to most folks , black conservatives help contribute to the intellectual fabric , by helping contribute to and feed the debate . With black liberals ,however , it is most definitely not the case . They feel threatened by black conservatives . They feel that black conservatives are a grievous threat to their power and their influence .

.. So , what happens ? They are mocked and ostracized , sent to the never – land of the black community , not to be dealt with . They are that afraid of them . While that happens , the black conservative community continues to grow in size and influence …

.. Sooner or later , the black community will have to take note of these folks . They cannot ignore them . These conservatives are among the most vigorous intellectuals , creative artists , athletes , and thinkers , no matter what the skin color . They cannot and will not be ignored , Steven A. Smith …

Vatican Chief Justice: Denying Communion to Nancy Pelosi “Makes Perfect Sense”

by Steven Ertelt | LifeNews.com | 12/16/13 4:21 PM

Catholics across the United States have for years wondered if and when pro-abortion “Catholics” like Nancy Pelosi or John Kerry would be told not to present themselves for Communion because they are out of step with Catholic Church teachings on the sanctity of human life.

Cardinal Raymond Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis and now the chief justice at the Vatican’s highest court saying prohibiting Pelosi and Kerry from receiving Communion”makes perfect sense,” according to a new interview Burke gave to EWTN.

As CNS News reports on the interview:

In an interview with EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo on Dec. 13, Cardinal Burke explained that it is necessary to protect the Sacrament, the Communion wafer offered at Masses, from “being profaned, being violated by someone receiving unworthily,” someone “who knows that he or she is unworthy and yet presumes to come forward and to take the Holy Eucharist.”

Host Arroyo then asked,  “Now, over the years, you have said everybody from John Kerry to Nancy Pelosi to Rudy Guiliani — these are public figures who are, by and large, pro-choice, in their public pronouncements, and manifestly so — you’ve said they shouldn’t receive the Sacrament. Now, over the years, you have received such scorn, for that clear teaching, do you ever stop and say, ‘Maybe I should back off a little bit’?”

Cardinal Burke, whose official title is Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, or chief of the Vatican’s highest court, said,  “I’ve thought about it because I’ve received very severe criticism, both at the time that I was insisting on applying the discipline and also in my writing and other situations. But I have to say that, I think about it again, the discipline itself, and it’s a consistent discipline from the time of St. Paul, from the very first years of the Church, and it makes perfect sense.” “In fact, it makes such fundamental sense that I can’t feel badly about it or question [it],” said the cardinal.  ‘The question in my mind is, ‘Why don’t more people understand this?’ Because I don’t consider it to be rocket science or some kind of very unusual insight. It’s something that is natural to our Faith.”

The cardinal continued, “The Holy Eucharist is the most sacred reality. It is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. And I simply wouldn’t approach to receive Holy Communion if I was in a state of sin, and neither would I give Holy Communion to someone who I knew was in a state of sin.”

This isn’t the first time Burke has said they should not receive communion.

In a September interview with The Wanderer, a Catholic newspaper, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome, sheds light on Pelosi and communion. He issues a call for pro-abortion politicians to be denied the sacrament — saying that Catholic Canon law must be applied to them.

… John Podesta should be Fired …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 19th,2013

.. you may wonder , why ?

.. when an ass such as this makes comments such as this …

.. in an interview with Politico ‘ s Glen Thrush , Podesta compared the GOP to a ” massive suicidal cult , ” in particular , the Reverend Jim Jones and his crew that committed mass suicide in November of 1978 ..

.. [link] to the video …

.. [link] to the Politico story ..

.. quote from the relevent story text ..

This is not just about providing added muscle to a beleaguered and undermanned  West Wing staff. According to interviews in recent weeks with an array of Obama  insiders and a dozen current and former senior aides, Podesta’s  hire is explicitly meant to shake things up inside the White House. In effect, I  was told, it represents the clearest sign to date of the administration’s  interest in shifting the paradigm of Obama’s presidency through the forceful,  unapologetic and occasionally provocative application of White House power.  Podesta, whose official mandate includes enforcement of numerous executive  orders on emissions and the environment, suggested as much when  he spoke with me earlier this fall about Obama’s team. “They need to focus on  executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy  of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,” he told me.

Note the change in the middle letter , A , from ” Advancement ” to ” Abortion . ” I believe Ryan is right .

NAACP: National Association for the Abortion of Colored People

by Ryan Bomberger | LifeNews.com | 1/16/13 11:45 AM

What better way for an out-of-touch liberal organization to celebrate itself than in the land of make believe? The NAACP’s 44th Annual Image Awards honor black imagery churned out by often racist, anti-Christian, perpetually sexist, violent and pornographic Hollywood. Just skim the list of nominees and one is left with an overwhelming feeling: emptiness.

Django Unchained, with its graphic violence and 100 plus uses of the racially denigrating epithet, “nigger”, gets praise and nominations from the NAACP. “Lincoln”, a powerful film of historical substance, completely eliminates the most potent influence in Lincoln’s ideology and evolution on slavery—Frederick Douglass. There’s no protest from the NAACP, just a nomination.

The nation’s oldest civil rights organization revels in a distorted reflection of who black Americans are, the struggles faced and the real world around us.  Though they will dress up their liberal causes in bright lights, filtered lenses and entertaining performances, the NAACP Image Awards worship a false image.

The NAACP’s selective, and often feigned, outrage on a myriad of issues is befitting of a multiple personality disorder, with its stronger personality being one that embraces all things liberal, most things socialistic, and nothing pro-life.  They’ll beat the drums of economic, social and environmental “justice” while over 360,000 black babies, annually, never get a chance at one of the few Constitutional rights that actually exist—the right to Life.

At a time when 72.3% of black children are born into homes without fathers and (in some places like Philadelphia) 50% of viable black pregnancies end in abortion one would think protecting future generations would become a national emergency for this historic organization. Single female-led homes are the norm in the black community. Children who grow up in these homes are 5 times more likely to live in poverty than those in two-parent married homes. Yet, these issues are non-existent on the organization’s website. And all the NAACP can do in regards to marriage is push gay marriage—hardly the solution to crumbling, impoverished families in our inner-cities.  What about equality for these beautiful children living without the economic, educational and emotional security of both a mother and a father?

The NAACP would rather sleep with Planned Parenthood, the urban staple and instigator of sexual irresponsibility, regardless of what people say. The affair has been going on for decades. The NAACP, despite denials, has publicly supported Planned Parenthood numerous times (here, here and here). It’s fought to prevent the abortion chain from being defunded while simultaneously fighting to ensure a massive influx of funding for its beloved ally (and annual convention sponsor) through Obamacare.

In fact, both organizations are part of the nation’s largest coalition of “civil rights” groups, The Leadership Conference. It was co-founded by famed civil rights figure, A. Philip Randolph, who was the President of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. He also happened to shill for Planned Parenthood back in 40s. Today, the NAACP, Planned Parenthood and a who’s who among pro-abortion groups are part of this “civil rights” collective. (The chair of The Leadership Conference just happens to be Judith Lichtman, the President of the rabidly pro-abortion National Partnership for Women and Families.)

Planned Parenthood, gay marriage, HIV/AIDS initiatives, and demonizing the GOP are far more important to the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People than the devastating reality that black babies are aborted at staggering levels. Black babies are aborted 6 times more frequently (in NYC) than white babies: 1,448 are aborted for every 1,000 that are born alive as compared to 244 white babies aborted for every 1,000 born alive (all losses are a tragedy).

No outreach. No outcry. No outrage.

The only racial profiling the NAACP supports is the vilification of any black public figure or organization that is conservative and the targeting of unborn black children for death via abortion.

The National Association for the Abortion of Colored People has no moral ground to stand upon, just quick sand oozing with the blood of those most discriminated against. The NAACP’s covert and overt support of Planned Parenthood negates any other human rights they purport to defend.

If they can’t show any concern for the most basic civil right stripped away before birth, how can they convince the American public that they’re dedicated to rights post-birth? Why should anyone care about those black lives that the NAACP is so willing to throw away in exchange for political prominence?

It’s not “rights” the NAACP is pursuing, but the Right (Senator Tim Scott, Judge Janice Rogers Brown, Allen West, The Radiance Foundation) in a venomous campaign to alter history to suit their allegiance to liberalism. Mainstream media has no spine or is complicit in the NAACP’s cause-du-jour. Whether it’s “dirty coal”, anti-charter school teachers’ unions, legalizing pot, or faux voting suppression crimes, the real crime is that news outlets never scrutinize the organization for its false claims, outrageous policies and destructive actions.

.. LEC again — in case you are wondering , yea , LifeNews and Ryan got sued . The case is now before the federal courts in (I believe) Norfolk , Virginia . A decision in the case should come sometime after the first of the new year  ….

… What is He Referring To [Senator Sessions] ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 18th,2013

.. Senator Jeff Sessions [R – Al] has turned into one hell of a senator .

.. He has made it into the G.O.P. leadership . He is the ranking member of (I believe) the Budget Committee . He may well also be the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee . Not bad . He was once a judicial nominee to the federal District Court by Ronaldus Magnus [Reagan] , and his nomination was filibustered (and thence stopped) by the DemoCraps . This happened to a fine man , one who would have made a fine judge . However , he would go on to bigger and better things …

.. Once Howell Heflin announced his retirement , Sessions sought his seat , and won it .

.. [h/t — http://www.RealClearPolitics.com] ..

.. [link] to the a/v

.. Sessions made an appearance on the Mark Levin radio show . What he was referring to was a provision in the recent Budget agreement , one that only applies to the Senate . It was one that the DemoCraps , I think , wanted dearly .

.. It changes Senate rules , temporarily . For purposes of the current environoment , it allows only 50 votes to waive provisons of the upcoming Budget Act for spending [but , not for tax cuts , i will bet] .

… nice Catch , Ellison [on Medicaid and ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 18th,2013

.. before , you literally had to choose to apply for Medicaid .

.. when I fell ill , and was medically confined to where I live (with good reason , then , and now [to a point]) , I had to choose to apply for Medicaid . I actually had a choice . Not much of one .

.. Yea , right , not much of one . I would have had a sky – high liability for my bill , with virtually no $$ to pay it . So , choosing not to was not much of an option …My finances had been flattened . I am completing the process of going through Bankruptcy . Also , because of the severity and the chronic nature of all of this , my student loans [all of them] will be discharged . So , I will be able to start out fresh . But , I could choose to apply for Medicaid …

.. Not now . If your income is of a certain level , BOOM , in you go to Medicaid . You do not get to choose , and go to get private insurance . The government sticking its nose into this intimate choice in my life is offensive …

.. [link] to the video ..

.. Ellison Barber is a very good reporter , in addition to being seriously cute (Yea , I am a guy , and I do notice) . She is very good on the pickup on commentary on TV and she was spot on on this …

… Bob , POTUS does not know How to be an Administrator …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 16th,2013

.. to be rather blunt and honest , his Lordship , POTUS , could not give a damn about being an administrator .

.. [link] to Bob Woodward ‘ s comments on Fox News Sunday

.. He does not know , generally , how to manage his staff . He leaves those tasks to others , such as his wife , his senior staff , and other flunkies , ones such as Valerie Jarrett . He has not had to deal with political opponets , ones who stand in direct opposition to what he wants . What usually happens is an environment where Dems dictate , and Republicans behave like docile sheep . That is what he has usually dealt with . The situtation in Washington has him in a constant state of political culture shock . What do I do ?

.. He has never had to be a payroll manager or had to make a payroll in his life . He is used to the political parlor , the debating club , the salon . He has never had to deal with the impact of government regulations on private individuals and on businesses …

.. His idea of management is giving a speech , and passing a diktat . He could care less , otherwise , about management or about government . He never has , and he never will …

… Australia faces What We are Facing [so – called ” Gay Marriage ” battle] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 16th,2013

.. if you think that battles over so – called ” gay marriage ” are limited to the United States , you would be wrong . They are not .

[h/t — CNSnews.com]

.. [link] to the article …

.. Legalization of this monstrosity is making its way around the European Continent , for sure . How many nations , so far , I am not sure .

.. Where it gets interesting is in Oceana [Australia / New Zealand] . New Zealand has legalized the immoral act . So far , more than one – third of their immoral acts are those of foreigners . The figures are not precise as to where those folks are from . Undoubtedly , a fair number are Aussies .

.. Australians are battling to legalize the immoral act . The legislature of the Australia Capital Territory [Canberra & the surrounding area] legalized it two years ago . The federal government of the previous Labour government challenged it , and the federal High Court overturned the legislature . They upheld the federal bill from the Liberal government from 2004 , defining the act of marriage as between one man and one woman . So , at least for now , marriage remains in Australia …

.. With what is going on and has happened in New Zealand , though , it is hardly the last word . More legal fights are bound to ensue . Given that there are loonie leftie judges that were placed on the bench during the Rudd – Gillard Labour Government , there are legal time bombs just waiting to go off , almost at any time …

… Here We Go [plural marriage ruling in Utah] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 16th,2013

.. ever since Windsor v US and Hollingsworth v Perry came out , people have been warning about this . They brought out warnings about it long before those 2 rulings emerged from the last U.S. Supreme Court term . Now , it gets much worse ..

.. the cause of so – called ” gay marriage ” continues to advance . Gays and lesbians are continuing their unabashed legal offensives , even against states who have constitutional prohibitions against this immoral offense . The radicals in the federal judiciary continue to accomodate them . How gross is that ?

.. ” Gay Marriage ” is unnatural and immoral . It must not be allowed to happen . Marriage is the natural and moral coupling between one man and one woman . It is that simple , folks . That is it …

[h/t — CNSnews.com]

.. Now , this . A federal judge in Utah has ruled that major parts of the state ‘ s polygamy prohibition law are unconstitutional . Yes , unconstitutional . Yea , amazingly enough … [article]

[update] [h/t — http://LegalInsurrection.com]

.. an update to this — the ruling is not quite that dire , at least not yet . It does effectively de – criminalize polygamy in Utah . No , the state will not touch this . It cannot . Utah ‘ s admission to the United States was made on condition that you-know-what was banned . So , they cannot go back on this .

.. However , the courts can act in this area . I expect them to continue to do so . The TLC ” Sister Wives  ” could appeal the partts of the ruling that they lost . The state will likely appeal , itself . Since Utah is in the 10th Federal Appeallate Circuit , they have a decent chance of winning an appeal . Not great , but a decent chance .

.. LEC here — given the legal environment , especially with those two ” gay marriage ” cases and Lawrence v Texas , eventually polygamy will be legalized . Not that I like it . I do not , not at all . Given the appalling lack of quality of judges that His Lordship is appointing to the bench , one should not be surprised …

They wanted to buy time on ESPN to promote their cause during the Christmas season . No biggie , there . Or , so you would think . ESPN rejected the ad . Why ?

.. I think that it was for its ” overly ” religious content . Also , the ad encouraged people to visit the foundation ‘ s website , and write sympathetic and empathetic messages for children , if possible , ones with a religious basis . These days , TV channels behave like a bunch of wussies . They run like hell away from anything that they think might or could be controversial . It seems that religion , amazingly enough , is a controversial subject . Why ? …

.. you need 60 votes in the Senate to invoke what is known as ” cloture ” to move legislation forward . It generally needs this amount in order to forstall any possible threat of a filibuster . So far , there has not been one , as of yet .

.. The problem is that the DummyCraps forgot how to count . You need 50 votes (+ VP Biden , if needed to break a tie) to pass a bill . The Democratic leadership assumed that they would pick up a couple of GOP votes to pass the bill , also assuming that they would lose some of their own people . They just did not think that they would lose very many people . They were wrong  .

.. Big Oops . Both of them . Nice going on the assumptions , tricky Dick Durbin (the Senate Majority Whip , for now) . He is supposed to know how to count to either 60 or 50 . Durbin generally does not admit that he is short of the mark , unless he really is . Doing it in public on a Sunday show [wrap up] is probably his way of creating some form of pressure on the GOP to produce some votes . Evidently , they are short of the mark .

.. Nice going , dummies …

… Meet the DePressed is Really Bad …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. I knew it had slid downhill , but not this far .

.. I caught the audio for it on Sunday from another room when I was watching my favourite N.F.L. team (yea , the Browns)

Russert's last book, Wisdom of Our Fathers

Russert’s last book, Wisdom of Our Fathers (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

lose another game . I did not pay attention to it that much , but yes , I did hear enough of it .

.. Yeech !! David Gregory is a terrible host , and an even worse questioner . He does not push his guests at all , whether they be newsmakers or the media . Tim Russert has to be turning over and over in his grave , watching this from up on high with the Big Guy .

… Why is the Government Doing This to Us ? [ObamaCrapCare diktats] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 14th,2013

.. unfortunately , because they can (from the law) , or the providers and others are afraid that the Government can (some undiscovered power) ..

[h/t — theGatewayPundit.com]
.. I came across this on the GatewayPundit site . As sad as it is , it is a real gut – wrencher . it is Jim Hoft [the GatewayPundit , himself] ‘ s own personal story .

.. on this day , Jim made this post on GP ([link] here) . I saw it the day that it was made . It grabbed at me because over the last couple of years I have been going through several major health issues of my very own . However , they are tough , but nowhere near as tough as Jim ‘ s , that is for sure .

.. A couple of days later , I caught up , and learned that the MahaRushie himself [Rush Limbaugh] had read from Jim ‘ s post on a segment of his show … [transcript] … this segment is amazingly powerful , and well worth the time to listen to it and watch it …

[also , h/t — theGatewayPundit.com]

.. [link] to Rush ‘ s show here ..

..  Medicaid is not much . I do have something . I am also active in managing my own case . Trust me . I drive the staff of the place where I live nuts at times with questions and interventions because I want to stay active in my own case , and manage my own affairs , and not rely on it being on automatic pilot .

.. I am praying for you , Jim . I understand where you are coming from . That Psalm you chose on your post was perfect . Stay active . Fight like hell . Make sure your preferred doctors and hospitals are included …

… The Insurers Asked for This [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 14th,2013

.. guess what , they have got it .

.. They supported the bill when it was being considered . They were warned about the dangers of socialized medicine , down through the years . They ignored the warnings , and threw their lot in with the ObamaCraps . Guess What ?

.. It blew up in their face . The ObamaCraps are bullying them , and dictating to them as if they are a wholly – owned subsidiary of the government . They are not , as of yet . The ObamaCraps are behaving that way , and they continue to do so …

.. We are the losers , and will continue to lose . Until the great mass of the American people come to their senses , and smash the DemoCrap party to bits …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 14th,2013

.. at least those clowns are showing some signs of life .

.. It is about time . Given the absolute all – out disaster that is ObamaCrapCare , it is long past time for the Press Corpse to show itself as professionals , and not as a bunch of ObamaCrap butt – kissers …

… I do Not Often Agree with Politifact [on ObamaCrapCare whopper] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 14th,2013

.. but , in this case , I do .

.. How POTUS could have gotten himself caught in this megawhopper is beyond me . He had to know that the developing policy would not allow him to keep his promise .

.. ” If You Want to Keep Your Doctor , You can . Period . ” Jeezus , to be honest , it is not just the Whopper of the Year . It is the MegaWhopper of the Decade . The ObamaCraps should have known better . Once they knew that they could not keep this promise , or others like it , they should have changed course , and quick . They should not have lied through their teeth the way that they did …

… Only in Obama ‘ s America [food stamp trading] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 13th,2013

.. It tells you how far our standards have fallen …

.. food stamps [a.k.a. , S.N.A.P.] are for the purchase and consumption of food …. not for being traded for use of and for consuming of other products , such as beer , wine , and alcohol .

.. I saw this short [segment] on Watters ‘ World on the O ‘ Reilly Factor [on FoxNewsChannel] the other night . Jesse was his usual whimsy and funny , but this literal ” beach bum ” was sick …
