Posted on 11/22/2013 3:49:13 AM PST by LD Jackson
Let's start with an acknowledgement of sorts. I suspect many people who may read this post will find no new information contained therein. Anyone who has paid attention already knows how the Obama administration operates. This should serve as a reminder to all who would dare criticize Obama or any action his administration may take. Watch your back because the Sandman may be on his way to your nightmares.
It's not a big secret that President Obama does not like to be criticized. From all accounts, he has a thin skin and he likes to get even with his political opponents. That attitude also spreads down the chain of command and is directed at anyone who speaks out against the Obama administration. I base my information on an opinion piece by Liz Peek. She points out some things that I was not aware of. She starts and ends with how the Obama administration attacks anyone who says the obvious about Obamacare.
Are you afraid of the Obama White House? If you challenge the presidents beloved health care plan, maybe you should be. Consider the fate of William White, the Washington, D.C. Insurance Commissioner, who voiced skepticism about President Obamas hastily assembled fix for the millions losing their insurance policies.Ms. Peek goes on to describe some of the times when criticism of Obamacare has been risky business for those who spoke their minds. The head of the Congressional Budget Office, supposedly a neutral body, was called to the White House shortly after his group pointed out some of the hard facts about Obamacare. This was early in the proceedings, when everyone was trying to determine what the fiscal impact of Obamacare would be. The CBO was not particularly favorable in their first report. After being summoned to speak with the President, CBO head Douglas Elmendorf changed the estimates.
A day after suggesting that the new demands on insurers could destabilize the marketplace and lead to even higher premiums, White was canned.
Telling the truth about ObamaCare is risky.
Who can forget when the insurance companies were brought before President Obama? This was after it was established that Obama had been lying through his teeth about Americans keeping their health insurance plans. It was also after he waved his rhetorical magic wand and declared the insurance companies could continue offering the plans they had already canceled because of his signature legislation.
Do you recall Anthem Blue Cross of California? When it became common knowledge that one of the side effects of the Affordable Care Act was to make insurance much less affordable, they dared to speak the truth, albeit quietly. President Obama attacked them on 60 Minutes and Kathleen Sebelius put HHS into attack mode. She required the company to justify the rate increases and wanted to know where they were going to spend the increased revenue. Government intrusion much?
Here's something you may not be aware of. In recent days, JP Morgan has been in the news because of the settlement they reached with the federal government. Billions of dollars will be paid out and the Obama administration is pushing for real admissions of wrong doing. This stems from the financial crisis of 2007-2008. Every newscast I listen to talks about how the Obama administration is going after JP Morgan for the part they played in selling bad mortgage securities. As it turns out, that's not what really happened.
Now the bank one of the few that didnt need TARP but was required to take it -- is the subject of numerous wide-ranging investigations and has been hit with unprecedented fines and demands for admission of wrong-doing. Lost in the witch-hunt has been the reality that the governments charges of mortgage misbehavior mainly stem from the activities of Washington Mutual, the largest bank ever to fail in the U.S.The "Dimon" the quote mentions is Jamie Dimon and he is a former supporter of Barack Obama. Then he started paying attention and speaking out against the Obama administration's "constant attack on business". He even went so far as to call their investigation into oil price speculation "ridiculous". In other words, he went public with his criticism and his company is now paying the price for his audacity.
In 2008 Morgan was pressed by regulators to buy the failed thrift, which otherwise could have brought down the countrys bank insurance program at an especially fragile moment. Dimons willingness to act earned unusual praise at the time from FDIC head Sheila Bair, who said Some are coming to Washington for help, others are coming to help. That was then before he started sounding off about President Obamas policies. Bank analyst Dick Bove may have been right when he wrote, the United States government has made it a priority to break this company.
The message from the Obama White House is crystal clear. Just as they used a scorched earth policy to help Obama win his first election in Chicago, the trend continues. They are not fond of stating a clear and concise defense of any policy they pursue. Instead, they go on the attack and look to drive their bus over anyone who stands in their way. I would dare say this attitude comes straight from the top, from President Obama and Valerie Jarrett. They know of no other course of action and even if they did, they seem to prefer attacking their political enemies with a special enthusiasm.
And we have three more years of this nonsense...
Alarmingly, Mrs Obama told BET that Mr Obama was constantly in the bathroom---"singing."
I just hope Mr Obama didnt invite the Obama kiddies into the bathroom for a "sing-a-long."
I hope and (you should excuse the expression) "pray" that the Obama children are not being subjected to abuse and neglect.
Might be a good idea to get this checked put.....better safe than sorry, people.

Every one is pu$$ying to this freaking spoiled retard who walks backwards as a way of life in denial.
he is completely crazy and retarded, wanting this that way or this way.
Unbelievable the damage of PC and affirmative action.
This country is headed for the abyss and one half (democrats) give the finger as they are sinking in it with it, while the other supposed GOP half is acting as if nothing really bad is happening.
What a bunch of a holes.
“Unbelievable the damage of PC and affirmative action. This country is headed for the abyss and one half (democrats) give the finger as they are sinking in it with it, while the other supposed GOP half is acting as if nothing really bad is happening.”
Silver linings include the loss of faith in the media and both parties. Also, nobody has any illusions anymore as to whether or not racism is responsible for the failure of blacks, 150 years after the Civil War, to integrate into America. Not due to Obama’s performace, but because he has thrust them into the spotlight, lavished even more freebies on them with ObamaCare, and they are still at the bottom of the educational and economic ladders. He was given the job (twice) for no other reason than being (half) black, and has simply dragged them further into misery.
Why even put the kenyan's name in there?
At some point leading up to the 2014 or the 2016 elections I expect there will be a series of high profile arrests of CEOs and/or politicians.
What are you trying to say?
To paraphrase an old FReeper post, "You could shave a bunch of chimps and send 'em to school but they ain't gonna get educated."
Read this book!
Well, with a name like that, they shouldn't have hired him in the first place!
Scene in Austin Powers, Fat Bastrd singing in the bathroom - “On top of spaghetti....”
0prah has a lot to lose; feud with Mooschelle may be telling as well. Granted, yes, 0prah is stupid, but that said, there are other reasons for not crossing the diktator.
A book such as that can not be read at an American university. Conservative arguments are thrown out before they are evaluated.
Obama is cornered and he and his supporters are lashing out and desperately trying to hold power. I fear that Obama between now and the 2014 election will go over the edge and use some self ordained “emergency” powers to stage a putsch.
Brilliantly written, and spot on.
There also is the gay inquisition of christians... who seem to have their rights to private thoughts and not be criticized, while these religious phobics will ask the NSA to snoop on us.
The perverts are just a handy tool in the hands of the Bolsheviks determined to marginalize religion in general and Christianity in particular. I’m glad the war on the faithful is in the open now; it is much more difficult for people to pretend they are serious Catholics with Obama bumper stickers on their cars...
Indeed, Tocqueville would say of the gays in particular and Bolshevics in general, because they all change the laws to their perverted ends, including the right of self defense and criticism.
America the fool, what are you doing?
“America the fool, what are you doing?”
A question I’ve asked my self; the only answer that makes sense is that they have successfully destroyed the notion of “America”. They have sold the idea that two swarthy perverts in section 8 housing receiving government-subsidized AZT treatments for their AIDS viruses are just as American as the WASP settlers who carved this country out of forest 200+ years ago, killing their own food and building their own homes, schools, and churches as they built a place to raise their nuclear families.
