Rep. Bill Chumley (R-District 35) was the primary sponsor of Freedom of Health Care Protection Act (H.3101), which passed the South Carolina house in April by a 65-34 vote. He invited two expert witnesses to speak in favor of the bill. One of the guests was the renowned economics professor Walter E. Williams from George Mason University, and frequent guest host for the Rush Limbaugh Show.
Reading the Ben Swann site today, it appears there is some good news on the horizon. Today, Ben is reporting that Congress is moving on Impeachment on Obama.
South Carolina Congressman Tom Rice (R) has filed a congressional resolution, which would, if adopted, direct the body “to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.”
President Obama has refused to uphold laws as written and passed by Congress. Most notably the President has changed and rewritten, at will, his landmark legislative achievement, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The President’s actions are unconstitutional pursuant to Article I, Section 1 and Article II Section, 3.
State Representative Jason Spencer (R-Woodbine) will hold a press conference on next Monday, December 16th, in the south wing of the Georgia Capitol building. Representative Spencer and several other legislators will meet to discuss two bills that will be introduced in the upcoming 2014 legislative season.
“The bill’s main thrust is to prohibit state agencies, officers and employees of the state from implementing any provisions of the Affordable Care Act, leaving implementation entirely in the hands of the federal government, which lacks the resources or personnel to carry out the programs it mandates,” said Rep. Spencer.
“BBC reports: Leading global technology firms have called for ‘wide-scale changes‘ to US government surveillance. Eight firms, Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, AOL, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Yahoo, have formed an alliance called Reform Government Surveillance group. The group has written a letter to the US President and Congress arguing that current surveillance practice ‘undermines the freedom’ of people. It comes after recent leaks detailed the extent of surveillance programs. ‘We understand that governments have a duty to protect their citizens. But this summer’s revelations highlighted the urgent need to reform government surveillance practices worldwide,’ the group said in an open letter published on its website.”
It appears that South Carolina is poised for “hero” status in the nation. It may become the first state to actually take the responsible approach by adopting a strong stance against the Obama assault on Americanism. I see this a as welcome news.
The bill, entitled “South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act” (H.3101), was voted on and passed by a 65-34 vote in the state House of Representatives last April. Now, it moves on to the Republican-controlled state Senate with a priority flag and could quickly be signed into law by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
Carl has commanded us to talk about impeaching Obama: Little repulsed me more than the Republican approach to impeaching Clinton. They acted that it was self-evident that he should be removed, and so they didn’t campaign on that case in 1998. The result was, of course, the impeachment became a laughable formality and Newt became an ex-speaker. Another result is that Clinton has been vindicated by history, because no Republican historian is continuing the battle for how and what to remember.
The news just keeps on pouring in. Today I read on Slashdot.org that morale over at the NSA is suffering. Really? There once was a time when leaders in our security agencies would have marched in and hauled this fake president off in handcuffs. Those days seem to be gone. Now we just get “low morale”. I guess we’ll just end up spending a decade or three cleaning the mess this fool leaves behind.
“Ellen Nakashima reports at the Washington Post that morale has taken a hit at the National Security Agency in the wake of controversy over the agency’s surveillance activities and officials are dismayed that President Obama has not visited the agency to show his support. ‘It is not clear whether or when Obama might travel the 23 miles up the Baltimore-Washington Parkway to visit Fort Meade, the NSA’s headquarters in Maryland,’ writes Nakashima, ‘but agency employees are privately voicing frustration at what they perceive as White House ambivalence amid the pounding the agency has taken from critics.’
Though Obama has asserted that the NSA’s collection of virtually all Americans’ phone records is lawful and has saved lives, the administration has not endorsed legislation that would codify it. And his recent statements suggest Obama thinks some of the NSA’s activities should be constrained. ‘The agency, from top to bottom, leadership to rank and file, feels that it is had no support from the White House even though it’s been carrying out publicly approved intelligence missions,’ says Joel Brenner, NSA inspector general from 2002 to 2006.
‘They feel they’ve been hung out to dry, and they’re right.’ Former officials note how President George W. Bush paid a visit to the NSA in January 2006, in the wake of revelations by the New York Times that the agency engaged in a counterterrorism program of warrantless surveillance on U.S. soil beginning after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ‘Bush came out and spoke to the workforce, and the effect on morale was tremendous,’ Brenner said.
‘There’s been nothing like that from this White House.’ Morale is ‘bad overall’ says another former NSA official. ‘It’s become very public and very personal. Literally, neighbors are asking people, ‘Why are you spying on Grandma?’”
I really hate to keep having to hammer away at this issue. I wish the man would just turn himself in and be over with it. Clearly no one in the FBI, the CIA, or the NSA has the balls to call him out. The mainstream media are, for some strange reason, afraid to take him on. Perhaps its the IRS angle? Who knows. I dislike very much that this man is consuming so much of my blog time! I want to get on with more pressing issues – like ending the Fed and tearing down the Big Pharma/FDA marriage.
That said, this clip from Megyn Kelly needs to be seen by everyone in America – TWICE!
Its certainly interesting to watch the crash and burn these days. After several years of attacks from this guy who claims to be an American President, it appears the wall will, in fact, come tumbling down. Here is what Canada’s “Globe and Mail” had to say:
Mr. Obama desperately needs healthy young people to sign on to Obamacare in order to subsidize the old and sick. But the salesman-in-chief can’t close the deal. His approval rating among millennials has sunk to a dismal 41 per cent, according to a new poll conducted by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. More than half of those under 25 would like to throw him out of office. Fifty-seven per cent of millennials say they disapprove of Obamacare, and less than a third say they’re likely to sign up.
Remember all the YouTube videos where the man who calls himself “Obama” made promises time after time about citizens being able to keep their plans? Ya? Well, today Ben Swann reports on an Obamacare advocate who just lost his plan. I wonder how he feels?
“If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it” is becoming the most notorious political lie since “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Millions of Americans nationwide – and about 250,000 in Colorado alone – are losing their health coverage as a result of Obamacare. In some cases, this has extended to the very people who championed the program hardest.
I love this piece! Today Ben Swann is reporting that in a bold move, one think tank is going above the rhetoric and mobilizing a nation to fight back against the NSA. The power of many is derived from the power of one, and Michael Boldin, Executive Director of the Tenth Amendment Center, is one titan the government has pushed too far.
The plan? It’s crazy, and risky. So was the iPhone. Attack the Achilles heel of the NSA. Water.
I’m part way through reading the “War Room Notes” from the meetings concerning the Obamacare website failures. I’ve had my own share of involvement with committees and boards and oversight authorities. Even at the local district level, these issues are difficult to work though. It can take months to gain a full understanding.
So when you consider that Obama’s tehcno-peasants are trying to patch together a nation-wide system to handle requests that might top 10,000 per hour, it’s not difficult to see why the system has no chance.
Where did Obamacare go wrong? The first and biggest mistake I can see is they didn’t give the contract to Amazon. Amazon’s system is “nucleic”. Like the living cells of a body that all communicate with each other, tens of thousands of tiny data centers become the cells that make the body that is Amazon. Obamacare needed to be handed over to Amazon for rollout. Clients would just be numbers or codes that are processed rapidly through the system. Those codes, would then interface with the government servers to become active and whole files that represent real people.
This concept is not new. In Canada, for example, natural gas is delivered by a range of companies that pump the product to a numbered station. Only the primary gas provider has the ability to turn that number into to name and face. One company owns the product, while the other company owns the transmission. This is what Obamacare should have done.
Rollout could have been enormously smooth and satisfying for clients. What where they thinking?
When you read the reports coming out of the House Oversight Committee on Government Reform, you just have to laugh and relax a bit. When you read this quote below, you have to know that there is not a chance these buffoons in the NSA or any other government agency can effectively spy on you! These idiots can’t even manage a website launch and plan a database structure that will work. They are techno-peasants … all of them!
“U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has released 175 pages of “War Room” notes — a collection of notes by federal officials dealing with the problems at Healthcare.gov. They start Oct. 1, the launch day. The War Room notes catalog IT problems — dashboards weren’t showing data, servers didn’t have the right production data, third party systems weren’t connecting to verify data, a key contractor had trouble logging on, and there wasn’t enough server capacity to handle the traffic, or enough people on the help desks to answer calls. To top it off, some personnel needed for the effort were furloughed because of the shutdown. Volunteers were needed to work weekends, but there were bureaucratic complications.”
I really hate to even have to report on this stuff. Kudos to Glenn Beck for airing the interview. Only a sequestered main stream media can allow these kinds of digressions to exist. Fixing the country – post Obama – isn’t the issue. This issue is dealing with the confederacy of fools that made this man their prince. It’s indicative of a very sick society.
