Obama caught in a massive lie (Beck +video)
GlennBeck.Com ^ | 7-13-11 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 07/14/2011 12:30:06 AM PDT by STARWISE

So has the President been caught in a massive lie? Apparently author Scott Wright has been doing some research on stories he told on the campaign trail, and he has found some contradictory information – primarily that a story he told on the campaign trail about his mother’s cancer coverage was exaggerated, to say the least.

“For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in a hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they’re saying that this may be a preexisting condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.

“There is something fundamentally wrong about that. It’s a lie,” Pat said. “Her insurance company covered her completely for the problem that she was suffering.”

“That is weird. According now to the records in January 1995, she left Indonesia to go to Honolulu where she was diagnosed with an advanced uterine and ovarian cancer. She began a regimen of surgery and chemotherapy.

*snip*

But Scott, an author of a new book who has access to Dunham’s correspondence from the time reveals that she unquestionably had health coverage.

Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance which covered most of the cost of her medical treatment,” Glenn read.

Glenn emphasized that she came from another country to the United States and received her medical care. Pat added that she was actually misdiagnosed in Indonesia, where she was said to have appendicitis.

“Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly leaving Ann only to pay the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which she said claimed to be several hundred dollars a month.

Scott Wright said Dunham, who wanted to be compensated for those costs as well as for her living expenses.

She filed a separate claim under her employer’s disability insurance policy. It was that claim with the insurance company Cigna that was declined in August 1995 because as Cigna investigators said, her condition was known before she was covered by the policy.

The man's lies and soaring, theatrical speechifying become so preposterous and ludicrous when you hear it again, it's easy to laugh along with Glenn and crew, but how truly pathetic.

Is there nothing about which there aren't lies....

No. His whole life is a lie. I am not sure HE even knows his real name, where he was born...IF he was born and not manufactured, or who birthed him.
My guess would be a jackal and his REAL name is Damien. But that’s just me.

When you're not called on your lies and you're a Liar they become more and more outlandish. Hence...Obama.

Bill Clinton was given the same press coverage and he became “Liar in Chief”.

Make no mistake Republicans out there who think “Say anything Mitt” has a chance. The media will ignore all his whoppers long enough to put him on their Tee. Then it will be 18 holes to election day and Mitt will be dissected with a Putter and exposed. It will be one time the MSM does their job but in a self serving manner. Mitt's the best candidate to get their Boy Wonder reelected because he lies just like Barry. Effectively taking the issue off the table.

What kind of sick sorry bass turd would use his own mother’s death as a demagogic lie? That’s so sick it would make Hannibal Lector lose his lunch.

This is why we constantly lose the debate.

That lie was a relatively benign one compared to the real scandalous lie that the establishment conservatives want to ignore:

THE MASSIVE LIE IS NOT SOME FACTOID OF AN EXAGGERATION ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL BUT RATHER WHO THE MAN HIMSELF REALLY IS.

I hate to shout like that but dammit when is "our side" going to get a clue? When you can lie about who you are there is no limit to the lies you can tell.

balack obama is am animated figment of his own imagination...a true representation of “he thinks, therefore he is.”

Or is it he is before he thinks? I’m so confused.

....Is there nothing about which there are not lies

The regime lies all the time we are just not smart enough to turn them around on them.

The biggest one of all recently is that

there might not be enough funds in the coffers to send out social security checks

If we were on the ball we could turn that one around.

Since we know there is plenty of money to send out SS checks why not turn it around on them. We could accurately state that seniors only get SS checks when Obama is in the mood to send them!!

Do that and they will be scared of the left not us.

2.Destroying Capitalism and advancing Communism.

Probably the biggest lie of all is the class warfare game that zero keeps trying to play take away all the "deducts for the rich".

This is a complete attack on capitalism since zero knows that kill the producers and you are left with big government,that's what they want.

We need to get it across to people that producers=rich people create jobs for people on the way up and poorer people. We should revere them not demagogue them! We need to turn the tables on these a-hollls far more than we are currently doing. And do it with gusto not a shy retiring manner.

You’re absolutely right but now Stand and Poor’s is playing the game on obama’s side by threatening to downgrade if the U.S. misses even one payment.

Well, downgrade! We haven’t been downgraded since 1917 and truthfully, this nation under his regime, deserves the downgrade.

He’s successfully run our nation into a Depression.

Defeat the corrupt bastard Marxist. GO SARAH!!!!

More of the same Onyx. This is the Chicago way coming out in the open--do or die,they are mobsters in reality.

There is no question we can make interest payments from now until hell freezes over.

We spend 300 billion per month but take in 2001 That's plenty of money to make interest payments.

What this is about is the real campaign fund for zeros' reelection.

The rats have nothing to run on they have to buy votes to have a chance of winning.

To win they need 2.5 trillion to buy votes with--the money that comes from bumping up the debt ceiling. The billion dollars he will raise is just all show money. Its small change compared to what they really use.

And when every government agency that has records on you engages in either lies to cover up your lies OR outright forges documents to support your lie... while the courts deny standing to anybody who would challenge you in civil trial... and law enforcement refuses to investigate the crimes.... then the only thing that can stop you in ANY LIE you live or speak is when the public wakes up and calls ALL THE ABOVE onto the carpet.

And that is what none of the “conservative media” and politicians will do. Because their careers, reputation, lives, and families have been threatened. That’s the criminality that controls the media, government, law enforcement, and courts. The difference between this and the mafia is that everybody knows what the mafia is up to, but people like the “conservative” personalities won’t expose this for what it is.

And THAT is what makes it seem hopeless to do anything through the electoral process, and why it seems like a waste of time to even consider what laws will be passed. We’re not operating under the rule of law. Only when we reclaim the rule of law will it make any difference what laws are made. Until then, we are ruled by whoever owns the unelected, unaccountable regulators that control and coerce EVERY SQUARE INCH of our lives. Obama’s only job is to be a placeholder. As long as he is POTUS, Soros owns the regulators who have the power to do whatever they darn well please.

I most certainly agree with you and you know a lot more about this than me.

Everything he says and does is all about his reelection. He has no other interest. The GOP leadership must stand strong.

Mitch McConnell’s stupid idea is unbelievably idiotic. DeMint deserves to be the Minority Leader!

Never give the Marxist control that belongs to Constitutionally to congress!

We know who is pulling his strings...a ‘one world’ communist cabal that includes George Soros et al. Obama has been marinated in communist ideology all of his life. Couple that with his narcissism and puer psychology and we have a man that will do untold damage to this country without blinking an eye. He hates America.It will take decades to get this country back on the right course even if he loses next November.

Agreed, you have the macro picture.

I'm curious about who makes the day to day loading of the prompter.Whether its Plouffe, Axelrod Jarrett or whom.

Zero just does not have the stones to load his own prompter.

My take was for us to always be in control and let them have only increases in the debt ceiling for every cut in spending that has occurred,not what they "anticipate" or some phony ten year plan that never happens.

Biden did it with the death of his first wife.

Al Gore did it with his sister's death from lung cancer. Said he promised at her death bed to fight big tobacco -- but took contributions from them for years afterward.

Very few politicians are trustworthy, and some are down right despicable. They will tell any lie to advance their careers and completly destroy anyone who gets in their way.

No conscience and no shame.

John Edwards was no stranger to using family tragedy to advance his own career either.

But watch this story. If it reaches a broader public, Obama's people will deny that he ever said his mother was denied coverage. Of course that's not what he said and not what he was charged with saying. He said they "tried" to deny her coverage. That's apparently not true either, but denying something you aren't accused of is a classic lawyerly ploy and Obama isn't a lawyer for nothing. If worse comes to worse for him, his people make reference to the other disability policy that didn't work out for her, and they'll be very indignant about having this called into question. Indignation also works in situations like this -- at least for Democrats.
