Schumer says health care isn’t dead yet – Dems might have to do it alone!

Add to Technorati  Favorites

This is getting creepy – we had just no more than posted the article about focus, and talking about how the Dems might get sneaky when this pops up on my news wire from FOX.

Chucky “I’m gonna get you” Schumer is at it again. This man is a dyed in the wool socialist and is out to make you into his image whether YOU like it or not.

He is bound a determined to get this health care plan through, costing, no costing, plan, no plan, what ever the cost, YOU’LL pay it.

The House of Reps is doing the same thing under Pelosi – starting a bill for a SINGLE PAYER MEDICARE SYSTEM for ALL Americans – mandatory.

Except unions and the Federal Government – of course. WHY IS THAT? Why is no one faxing the House and Senate and asking WHY this plan excludes them – WHY can THEY have their own plans, untaxed and unfettered? What makes them so special? They’re OUR reps – WE’RE the ones THEY should consider special.

The ultimate, snide, condescending, loathing, hate filled arrogance of these people is beyond anything we have seen before. The small smirks and sneers say it all. They look down their noses at us, because when we elected them to office, they achieved demi god status and are immediately better than us. Listen to their words and how they say them – how they look when it comes out of their mouth. They know we don’t want this, and they don’t care.

The NYT/CBS poll was of I believe a little over 100 people and 48 said they voted for BO while only 24 said McCain. This is a highly SKEWED lie. This is a poll that is 2:1 in favor of BO to begin with and they are mostly going to support the health care plan.

Is it any wonder that 72% of this LITTLE poll was for BO’s health care?

The Gallup poll of, I believe, 1000 people showed 42% for 42% against. Not the overwhelming poll the Senator wants to hear. But then – BO had a mandate with a slight majority of the popular votes – right?

Read all about the arrogance of Schumer and the dems.

It isn’t dead yet my friends. Keep fighting the fight!

Walpin-gate opens wider – IG proven right – FBI involved

Add to Technorati  Favorites

Well, now.

There is a stink coming from the beltway, and it is smelling like it is coming from an area around Pennsylvania Ave.

New information is coming out regarding what happened with IG Walpin and the firing of that same IG by Barack Obama. Shattering information. In depth information that points towards cronyism and machine politics that smells an awful lot like Nixon with his Watergate people. A major cover up.

Walpin isn’t the only IG in trouble with our “transparent” President.

Let’s get into some of the details:

The president fired Mr. Walpin June 11 after Mr. Walpin filed two reports critical of Obama friends. The highest-profile of the two reports focused on misuse of funds at Sacramento’s St. Hope Academy, then run by former NBA star Kevin Johnson before Mr. Johnson was elected Sacramento’s mayor in November. Mr. Johnson was a frequent stump speaker for Mr. Obama during last year’s campaign and has claimed in TV interviews to be particularly good friends with first lady Michelle Obama. 

Friends with the Obamas? Supporter? This at the least has some tinge of protection of a person who is without a doubt guilty of something not good in regard to handling of Federal Taxpayer Dollars.

Now comes more interesting news:

In turn, the U.S. attorney filed a complaint against Mr. Walpin, charging him with unethical behavior throughout the investigation. The White House fired Mr. Walpin long before the relevant committee would have finished its assessment of the U.S. attorney’s complaint.

As The Washington Times reported in a previous editorial, U.S. Attorney Brown’s complaint included at least two major, easily discernible errors of fact. Many other complaints against Mr. Walpin, both by Mr. Brown and by other AmeriCorps officials, were strangely petty in nature.

Now here is where the story gets really interesting. On the very same day that the president fired Mr. Walpin, St. Hope’s executive director, Rick Maya, left his job at St. Hope. He did not go quietly. His resignation letter charged Mr. Johnson and several St. Hope board members with numerous ethical violations. Most explosively, he charged that a board member improperly deleted e-mails of Mr. Johnson’s that already were under a federal subpoena.

So, we have INSIDE confirmation of what was said by the IG who according to Barack was “confused, disoriented, …” and that is why he was dismissed.

Now the hammers start to fall:

On Wednesday, the Sacramento Bee reported that Mr. Maya’s allegations have been deemed serious enough that the FBI is investigating potential obstruction of justice at St. Hope. In that light, the firing of Mr. Walpin, who properly blew the whistle on mismanagement and possible corruption, looks ill-considered.

Oops. Damn that confused, old, troublemaking, rebellious man we all saw on Beck look about as harmless as a teddy bear. Now he’s gone and done it – he’s got the FBI involved.

I wonder how long it will take for the White House to start backing away from KJ and saying they didn’t know anything about this whole affair at the time of the firing.

It also was learned last week that the White House is involved in major disputes with two other inspectors general who were poking around the administration’s business, including Neil M. Barofsky, whose job is to serve as watchdog for spending the $787 billion in controversial economic bailout funds.

All of this suggests that the purported White House mistreatment of independent inspectors general is a scandal that might have real legs. As well it should.

Wow. The conspiracy theorist strikes again. Kind of funny how we keep getting these things right when everyone who is trying to spike us keeps telling us we’re future forecasting and fantasizing without any truth in the matter. We must be touching some buttons somewhere, eh?

Amazing how accurate someone can be when they list facts and then comment on what it could mean based on proven behavior observed by most people. Speculation obviously isn’t as wild when you keep hitting the mark, huh?

Once again, why is this cover up of criminal behavior, dismissing of charges, investigating and complaining about an IG who was RIGHT, and the pattern of cover ups already taking place (Philly NBPP poll thugs for example) being tolerated by the main stream media?

Better yet, with this pattern of Chicago politics dishonesty coming out, why would anyone BELIEVE what this man says?

“I don’t want to run the auto industry” – but he takes over a car company and forces two into bankruptcy.

“You can keep your private health care package” – but his handlers say that was rhetoric – “Don’t take him literally”

“It’s not a single payer plan like medicare” – but in the same article it talks about that being exactly what it is.

Now – he is telling us about all these crises that aren’t really crises and ignoring the crises, like Iran, that he shouldn’t be ignoring.

When does this strong arming, bullying, cover up, lying and otherwise very bad behavior approach the level of Nixon? I had hesitated to call for the “I” word, but at this time, it starts to creep up from the subconcious to the concious mind.

I wonder what the excuses will be this time?

Obama Walks Back Promise On Keeping Your Private Insurance

Add to Technorati  Favorites

When people started hearing promises by Barack Obama that we could keep our private insurance and that he didn’t want to take over insurance, that he didn’t want government to become a single payer system, that we were all liars, I just sat back and waited.

I kept waiting for the other shoe to silently drop.

I have already, in my short stint, been accused of being a consiracy nut. That I believe aliens are pulling the strings, etc. Still not sure where that came from since I have linked to information on almost every single thing I have talked about.

I know there are people who are questioning the sanity of what I talked about in my very long post about the breakdown of what health insurance could really cost. (up to the tune of 22k dollars per person per year – see the article for my math)

I realize it seems far fetched.

But what I based my math on was the CBO PARTIAL scoring (their word for “figuring up the potential cost” or guessing) of the health care plans before Congress RIGHT NOW and the idea that they were going to base this system on the current medicare system which doubled in cost to the taxpayers every 4 years.

“But Rich, Barack, the anointed one, says we won’t be single payer or based on a medicare system!”, you say.

Couple of things to remember – you as an employer aren’t going to keep the costs in your life of insurance if you could foist it off on the government to stay competitive with a competitor that does it. That would quickly kill your market share.

Government is going to tax employers who don’t cover employees, and employees are going to get taxed if they have a private plan as if the value of that plan were INCOME. If you make 50k and your insurance plan is worth 15k – you WILL be paying taxes at a 65k level.

Go look up the difference and see how much more you’ll pay – dare ya!

And if you think this won’t happen – this is the SAME party who believes if you don’t WANT to join a union – you don’t deserve a job or you get charged the dues anyway. Sound familiar? Want proof of that – see the long list of videos about union tactics.

So, why am I rehashing all this? We are seeing more and more proof of what we’ve been predicting in ominous little comments such as the one you see in the linked article. There is also independent corroboration of what we looked at in that big long article – that 119 people who ARE insured will eventually be forced onto the dole of government insurance – thus making our numbers seem all that more realistic.

I can see the future quote now:

“America, I am sorry that it has come to this juncture. While I, as President, do not want to step in and nationalized the entire health care system, I find myself being forced into this by the failure of the private health insurance industry to continue to hold up it’s part of the bargain while government health care patients enjoy all the benefits. Therefore, it saddens me to sign into law this bill so that I can save you all from yourselves and bring you into the fold under my thu…. er contro….er wings!”

Americorps fraught with Fraud? IG fired for discovering it?

Michelle Malkin has done it again, bringing us a story on Americorps and the fraud and corruption inside it.

This little-noticed story in Youth Today yesterday points to another example of Walpin blowing the whistle on fraud:

The inspector general (IG) of the Corporation for National and Community Service is being removed by President Barack Obama, a week after the IG questioned the eligibility of the largest and most expensive AmeriCorps program, and while the IG was contesting the “propriety” of a settlement made with a mayor for alleged misuse of AmeriCorps funds.

Funding for the largest AmeriCorps program – the Teaching Fellows Program, run by the Research Foundation of the City University of New York – is in abeyance pending resolution of widespread problems identified in a recent audit. Although Walpin recommended that funding be curtailed and that previous funds (perhaps as much as $75 million) be repaid to the corporation, the corporation has said it will take no action on that matter.
 

Walpin concluded that nothing was being gained by the grants to CUNY and that the money was simply being used to subsidize an existing and funded program.

This Inspector General filed his report which you can read here: http://www.cncsig.gov/AuditReports.html

This is only the beginning – here is a little piece of the report filed:

The Office of Inspector General (OIG), Corporation for National and Community Service (Corporation), contracted with Cotton & Company LLP to perform agreed-upon procedures to assist the OIG in grant cost and compliance testing of Corporation-funded Federal assistance provided to The Research Foundation of the City University of New York (RFCUNY). The Corporation awarded two Education Award Program grants to RFCUNY that were categorized as Professional Model grants.

SUMMARY OF RESULTS

As a result of applying our procedures, we questioned education awards of $16,152,414 and draw downs of $773,254. In general, we questioned the education awards for members whose eligibility was not established in accordance with grant requirements for criminal background checks. Draw downs were questioned mostly for fixed fees related to members whose eligibility we questioned and also for drawing down in excess of fees earned. In addition, our compliance findings when taken as a whole indicate pervasive problems of eligibility, timekeeping, and documentation. A questioned cost is an alleged violation of a provision of law, regulation, contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or other agreement or document governing the expenditure of funds or a finding that, at the time of testing,
includes costs not supported by adequate documentation.

…Participants who successfully complete terms of service under AmeriCorps grants are eligible for education awards and, in some cases, accrued interest awards funded by the Corporation’s National Service Trust. These award amounts are not funded by Corporation grants and thus are not included in claimed grant costs. But at the time that a grant is awarded, and due to the grant award, these amounts become immediate obligations of the National Service Trust. Therefore, as part of our agreed-upon procedures, and using the same criteria used for the grantee’s claimed costs, we determined the effect of our findings on AmeriCorps members’ entitlement to education and accrued interest awards.

The following is a summary of grant compliance testing results…

1. RFCUNY drew down more funds than it was due.

2. RFCUNY did not follow certain AmeriCorps Provisions.

3. The supervisory signature on members’ timesheets was not the members’ supervisor, or that of someone with direct knowledge of hours served by the members.

4. Members did not always record actual service hours on their timesheets.

5. Some members’ timesheet hours were not accurately recorded in the Corporation’s Web-Based Reporting System.

6. RFCUNY did not require its members to timely submit their member contracts, forms, and timesheets.

7. RFCUNY used preprinted member documentation and did not ensure that all member documentation was completed, signed, and dated.

8. RFCUNY did not maintain documentation to demonstrate that each member’s evaluation complied with AmeriCorps Regulations and the Member Agreement.

9. RFCUNY did not maintain documentation to demonstrate that members received criminal background checks and that any background checks conducted complied with AmeriCorps Provisions.

10. RFCUNY entered incorrect member start dates in Corporation systems and in member contracts.

11. Some members worked beyond their contract-end date.

Personally – I would love to add something pithy or meaningful – but frankly, this is something I can’t add much to. This is just corruption and the cover up of corruption by people who are trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the majority of the American people and act saintly while practicing cronyism, machine politics, and protection of a supporter caught with his hand in a cookie jar.

Since the American people, in their wisdom decided in their knee jerk pied piper routine to follow the media down this rathole to socialism and petty identity politics, we have no way of slowing this train down if the Democrats all decide to hop on the ride at the same time.

It’s becoming more and more apparent that investigations are going to be stopped, people looking into things will be punished or removed and people who question methods or ideas will be attacked, and generally in a hateful manner.

This is the hope and change that everyone was hoping for, right?

The debt everyone cursed Bush for is quadrupled, the war continues with more troops being sent back to the Middle East, our ally is being ignored in favor of Iran and Hammas, unemployment is worse than predicted, tax cheats put into office, people being fired to cover up fraud, dates, fly overs, etc.

I can’t stand what is going on here –  this IG did his job, and should be rewarded, not punished. The people who should be punished are the people who are committing misdeeds, not the ones discovering them.

Al Gore sued by over 30,000 Scientists for Global Warming fraud

How in the world can the mainstream media decided to ignore these people?

30,000 scientists, 9,000 with PhD are together in this.

30,000.

“We might have raised the temperature 1/10th of 1 percent…”

“CO2 is not a pollutant….”

Weather Channel founder is out to provide an end to this Global Warming Farce.

This is to allow these people to get Al Gore and his crowd to argue their points with scientists who feel that they can prove that he is wrong.

On the hockey stick theory:

“It has been proved without a shadow of a doubt that it is built on bad science – you can put any data into that formula you want and it will come out a hockey stick…”

Very worthwhile listen!
