Deception and Fraud: Chicago Politics in the White House
In May of 2013, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told Fox News Sunday, “President Obama learned about the Internal Revenue Service targeting Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt status only after it had come out in the media but that the administration would make sure ‘it never happens again.’”
The question we should ask is, “Make sure what never happens again—bullying the Tea Party or the president learning about such incidents after the media announces them?”
With apologies to humorist Will Rogers, Obama has something in common with him. Rogers said, “All I know is what I read in the papers.” That’s fine for a humorist, but it’s not acceptable for the President of the United States.
Did the president lie about the IRS bullying the Tea Party, purposefully derailing a tax exempt status to Tea Party affiliates and other conservative groups–supposedly originated by “a few rogue agents” in the IRS’ Cincinnati office?
The liberal Atlantic reports former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman signed in 11 times between 2009 and 2012, not 157 times as reported by some Conservative media outlets, and those meetings had to do with the implementation of ObamaCare, nothing else. A report from Conservative WND says that cabinet members and other important individuals don’t always have to sign in or if they do, they can go to several different meetings on different topics once admitted to the White House. The Atlantic acknowledges that is true. If Schulman’s visits were only related to ObamaCare, why did he struggle to describe to a congressional committee the purpose of his visits, naming as his number one reason the Easter Egg Roll?
Did Obama lie to Americans about not having their insurance policy cancelled and being forced to buy a more expensive one?
A longtime mainstream news media ally, NBC News says Obama knew for years and was telling the public just the opposite. Even Bill Maher told CNN’s Piers Morgan that Obama should not have lied, but if he told the truth, ObamaCare probably would not have passed. It was all calculated, deliberate and cynical—fraud.
Did Obama lie about employer-sponsored health plans?
My daughter’s boss said ObamaCare would not affect their small business employer-sponsored health insurance. Why would she think that? Easy. Obama said,
“If your employer provides you health insurance on the job, nobody is talking about messing with that.” Yet, this past week, her plan was cancelled—no more payroll deductions. “Because of the requirements of the new laws, we can no longer offer your current Anthem policy.”
However, they are offering other plans that are compliant with ACA—however—too cost exorbitant to afford. The law actually expects 66% of small businesses to get hit by ObamaCare.
It makes one wonder not how many policies will be cancelled but rather do we know of anyone who has not been cancelled.
A recent Rasmussen Reports found that 71 percent of voters believe Obama or his senior officials lied about health insurance costs going up.
“Americans are losing (insurance) coverage by political design,” says Rush Limbaugh. He continues, “Whatever is necessary to say or do to advance the agenda is what is morally correct” in Obama’s mind. 93 million Americans will be affected.
Did Obama lie about premium increases?
Forbes.com says that annual health care premiums for the average American family of four will increase to $7500/year by 2022, but Obama promised that the average American family would see a cost savings of $2500/year.
Did the White House tell private insurance executives to keep quiet over what is happening with ObamaCare?
According to CNN, the White House told insurance executives to keep quiet on ObamaCare, basically saying that if you speak out or are quoted, you’re going to receive a call from the White House pressuring to be quiet.
In an interview with CNN, Robert Laszewski, President of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, LLC, told CNN he’s receiving calls from insurance executives asking him to speak out on their behalf because they feel defenseless against the White House. Laszewski said:
“The administration was told they were being over regulatory, you’re requiring too many things, you’re making this too complicated, you’re not letting people keep their plans who have them now and the Obama administration decided to do it the way the Obama administration was going to do it. One of the things I think is clear here, is the Obama administration has no trust in anything the health insurance industry tells them about how to run a health plan and I think the administrative mess you’re seeing right now is indicative of what happens when somebody tries to run somebody else’s business who thinks they’re smarter than you are.”
For the first time in the history of the United States, citizens are forced to buy a product created by a socialized Democrat health care grab that is not only undemocratic, but equally immoral and un-America, thanks to the infamous actions of the complicit turncoat, Supreme Court Justice, Rogue Roberts. This insidious law that forces Americans to have to buy something they don’t want or else pay a fine is also forcing large employers to drop health care offerings to their employees because it will negatively affect their profit margin. Many have chosen to pay the fine instead.
Did this administration lie to get the bill passed and to pave the way for a single payer system?
This opens the door to what Harry Reid wanted from the get-go. He said he would have passed single-payer had he had enough votes in the Senate, and ObamaCare is a just a step toward single-payer. Having failed at that, Reid took the unprecedented act of disallowing a 60% vote of the Senate and allowing this notorious Communist grab of power to be “deemed as passed” by a majority of one. Out of one hundred senators, this first step toward the complete over throw of democracy and institutionalizing a totalitarian Communist Sate was passed by only 51 votes. Without a defendable retort from the Left, we will soon be hearing the cries of “Witch Hunt” and “McCarthyism.” It worked for the Communist infiltrators in the fifties—let us hope it will not work again.
Maryland Congressional Candidate and former Secret Service member, Dan Bongino, sums up most Americans’ frustrations with the “Affordable” Heath Care Act in his rightful, explosive smack down of liberal commentator, Julie Roginsky, on a Sean Hannity recent radio program (listen to his interview via the Independent Journal).
What if you don’t sign up? How much are the penalties?
Kate Pavelich inTownhall.com writes:
In 2014, the penalty will be no more than $285 per family, or 1% of income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the cap rises to $975, or 2% of income. And by 2016, it reaches $2,085 per family, or 2.5% of income, whichever is greater…The dollar amounts for a single adult would be $95, $325 and $695 during that same time period or 1% of your income, whichever is higher.
Can the IRS seize your property?
Despite the rumors that you will lose your driver license and then possibly have your property confiscated if you don’t purchase a healthcare plan, the IRS is limited on what they can do. They cannot do either of those, nor will you be considered a felon if you don’t comply. However, they will be able to add interest and maybe add more financial penalties—but still—put extra bolts on your doors and secure your windows.
Is the President of the United States a serial liar?
This is a partial list with one direct quote from the president. There is not room to list all of his pontifications.
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan—period. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor—period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

Bob Woodward, formerly an Obama supporter and known for taking down President Nixon, on a panel hosted by CBS’ anchor Bob Schieffer, recently referred to this administration as being a “rat’s nest of concealment and lies,” and that his “secret” government needs to be reviewed. Listen when Bob Woodward speaks.

Next stop: November of 2014 where we need a massive overhaul of Congress, including the purging of liberal Republicans. Oh and by the way—history has shown the REDS are on the Left—even if they are hiding behind a blue coat. It is only a matter of time before the Progressives turn their blue coats inside out exposing their red lining—it has happened before. Does the term “turn coat” remind you of anything?
