Obamacare, President Payback’s Revenge on Racist Amerika:Today On The Teri O’Brien Show, 3-30-14



Tomorrow is the “deadline” for us serfs to submit ourselves to Barack Obama’s massive income redistribution scheme, the Orwellian named “Affordable Care Act, which, of course, is not affordable for the vast majority of Americans and has nothing to do with improving their health care.


If you don’t have health insurance, you MUST sign up for health insurance by tomorrow. No, not really. His Highness King Barack says you can take advantage of the “extended enrollment period,” if you say it was too hard to sign up, even though you tried, based on the honor system.

Obamacare is designed to address a problem that most Americans didn’t think existed; specifically, the “unfairness” that resulted from the fact that some people made bad lifestyle choices. How mean and unfair was it that people who finished school, waited until they were married to have children, and lived the traditional “Leave it to Beaver” life in their “cushy” suburbs got health insurance at their jobs as part of their compensation? Think about it: the unmedicated mental patient, released at the insistence of the ACLU, swearing under his breath as he pushes his shopping cart, his stench signaling his arrival, didn’t have health insurance. Neither did the serial baby mama and her various sperm donors. Thanks to our Dear Reader, that unfairness is being fixed. Everyone, except of course, the Regime and their cronies, who will continue to receive the absolute finest and most costly of everything, including medical care.

The Lame Stream Media has a self-imposed gag order on discussing the Obamacare debacle, including the many lawless unilateral nullifications of the One’s “signature” achievement, preferring to discuss Chris Christie, the missing Malaysian plane, and the upcoming baseball season, anything to avoid the ACA train wreck. They certainly aren’t asking whether Justice Elena Kagan embarrassed herself during last week’s Hobby Lobby argument, by revealing that she hasn’t read the law. We will.

They are also avoiding any discussion of the information revealed last week by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), which contains the jaw-droppingly disturbing truth about Barack Obama as the “deporter in chief.” Actually, he has unilaterally nullified our immigration laws with his infamous pen, resulting in de facto amnesty for millions. Si se puede, Bitter Clinger!

LIke a Sleazy Used Car Salesman, Amnesty Proponents Press “Urgency”

From the New York Times aka The Liberal Death Star:

Senate Democratic leaders sought on Monday to spur their colleagues to pick up the pace as the immigration debate entered its second week.

With the legislation’s backers hoping to win Senate approval before members of Congress leave for the Fourth of July, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, warned that the Senate could be held in session over the weekend if there was no progress soon.

Senator Patrick J. Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who chairs the Judiciary Committee and is managing the bipartisan immigration measure on the floor, also prodded the Senate.

“Either we do it now or we are never going to do it,” he said.

You said a mouthful there, Senator Leahy. Isn’t that exactly the point? Coincidentally, I happened to be surfing around and I encountered this piece, “Secrets from a Used Car Salesman on Getting the Best Deal.” One tip “They feed on urgency.” Of course they do! When people are trying to get you to do something, and are also telling you “Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! Time is running out!,” you know that they are trying to pull a fast one. Why do you think they call it a “fast one” in the first place?

Yes, time is running out on this con.The more people find out about this 1041-page disaster, the less they like it. Shades of Obamacare, another 1000+ page train wreck that we had to pass so we could find out what’s in it.

As is so often the case, one of my favorite members of the U.S. Senate, Jeff Sessions (R-AL), is spot on. Also from the Liberal Death Star, by way of Daily News Crunch:

Senator Jeff Sessions, an elfin Alabamian with a mischievous smile and a relentless approach to legislative battle, has a theory about the sweeping immigration bill pending in the Senate: It’s as good as dead.

“The longer it lays in the sun, the more it smells, as they say about the mackerel,”(emphasis mine) said Mr. Sessions, the Republican enthusiastically leading the opposition to a bill others on his side of the aisle see as vital to the very future of the Republican Party.

We can stop this destructive amnesty. If you haven’t done so already, please go to the NumbersUSA website and send a free message to your representative. Sen. Reid, Sen. Schumer, Sen. Leahy, Sen. Durbin, and Barack Obama know that if we mobilize, their proposal, which I think of as the “Democrat-Majority for Decades Insurance Act,” is dead. Let’s put it out of its misery.

Sen. Marco Rubio, Please Don’t Let Yourself Get Played By Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin

On yesterday’s show, I told you that I fear that Sen. Marco Rubio is being played on the issue of immigration. Here’s the latest con from Obama and the democrats. They get him to be the front man on their “comprehensive immigration reform,” assuring him that, as he said on several Sunday shows yesterday, any reform allowing people illegally in the country to stay while they get right with the law will be more difficult and more expensive than it would be for them to go home and get in line. All the while, they snicker behind his back. They know that as long as those undocumented democrats stay in the country, the elected democrats can chip away at any of those onerous provisions that mean Republicans and other uncool people who support old-fashioned, outdated concepts like the rule of law support and insisted upon in exchange for amnesty.

illegal aliens, immigration reform

I thought these people were “in the shadows.”

If you had any doubt that I’m right, (and I don’t know why you would since you should have learned by now that you should never doubt me), consider the following, from yesterday’s Washington Post, a story by David Nakamura:

It was early one morning in December when Richard J. Durbin spotted Marco Rubio in the members-only Senate gym.

Dedicated fitness buffs, the two had become unlikely workout buddies. Now Durbin (D-Ill.) wanted to know whether Rubio (R-Fla.) would join him in another heavy lift: a fledgling bipartisan group tackling immigration reform.

“You ought to be a part of this,” Durbin, 68, told his 41-year-old colleague, according to people familiar with the conversation. “You’d be an important voice, so come hear us out.”

Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin is behind recruiting Sen. Rubio into these amnesty shenanigans. Need I say more? This guy is one of the phoniest, duplicitous leftist schemers. That’s how he earned the nickname “Eddie Haskell” from me in the first place, and the nickname “the pudgy huckster” from the late Steve Neal, political reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times. He is legendary in his home state for his soft-spoken, avuncular demeanor which he uses quite skillfully to conceal his extreme views from gullible constituents. This is the man who plotted with radical leftwing groups to obstruct the confirmation of many of President George W. Bush’s well-qualified judicial nominees, including the scary smart, and “especially dangerous” Miguel Estrada. The left-wing, identity politics groups, People for the American Way, NARAL, and the Alliance for Justice, who pull Durbin’s strings demanded that Mr. Estrada never be permitted on the federal bench because “he is Latino” and they could not run the risk that a Republican president would appoint the first Hispanic to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition, Dick Durbin has shown the democrats’ cards on the issue of border security. Let’s pretend for the sake of argument that our government has any way of measuring border security, even though as we heard on the March 24 edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, they have admitted that they don’t. In a congressional subcommittee Obama administration officials testified that the new and improved “holistic” metric that Big Sis, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, promised two years ago does not exist. There is no new metric, and there recent evidence that the border is significantly less secure than we’ve been told. From the awesome Byron York in the Washington Examiner:

“According to internal reports, Border Patrol agents used the airborne radar to help find and detain 1,874 people in the Sonora Desert between October 1 [2012] and January 17 [2013],” reported the Los Angeles Times last week. “But the radar system spotted an additional 1,962 people in the same area who evaded arrest and disappeared into the United States.”

That means officers caught fewer than half of those who made the crossing in that part of Arizona. If those results are representative of other sectors of the border, then everything the administration has said about border security is wrong.

We haven’t seen the “Gang of 8” proposal, but supposedly it sets the bar on border security pretty high. From The Wall Street Journal:

Immigrants in the U.S. illegally would not gain green cards under a bipartisan Senate bill until law-enforcement officials are monitoring the entire southern border and stopping 90% of people crossing illegally in certain areas, according to people familiar with the plan. …

Along the U.S.-Mexican border, 100% of the border would have to be under surveillance, and law enforcement would have to catch 90% of those who cross the border illegally at “high risk” sections—a term that people following the Senate talks did not define. In 2010, the Department of Homeland Security reported that only 44% of the border was under operational control, meaning officials had the ability to detect and block illegal activity there.

Sen. Durbin, along with his partners in crime Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has suggested, though, that this 90% number is not a requirement that must be met before illegals get put on that vaunted “path to citizenship.” (Aside: shouldn’t that be “pathway to a green card?”) Rather, it’s a “goal.” So, in other words, it’s the typical leftwing lying lip service designed to deceive people into supporting proposals that they would never support in a million years if the truth were known. From Politico:

Sens. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Michael Bennet (Colo.) disputed a report in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal that the immigrants would have to wait until law enforcement officials are stopping 90 percent of people crossing the Southern border.

According to Democratic sources briefed on the legislation, the Department of Homeland Security would need to implement a plan that achieves the 90 percent apprehension rate, but the rate itself is not a trigger and a barrier to the pathway for citizenship.

Oh, OK, then never mind.

And then, there’s this from The Liberal Death Star aka The New York Times:

As drafted, the legislation would provide as much as $3.5 billion for the Department of Homeland Security to set up a five-year border security plan. Officials must present the plan within six months, and no immigrants can gain any provisional legal status until the plan is in place. It would include a program to finish any border fencing that border agents deem necessary.

The plan must also show how the authorities will move quickly to spread technology across the border to ensure that agents can have surveillance capability along its entire length. They will also have five years to reach 90 percent effectiveness in their operations, a measure based on calculations of what percentage of illegal crossers were caught or turned back without crossing.

If, after five years, border officials have not reached the surveillance and enforcement goals, the bill establishes a border commission to advise the Department of Homeland Security on how to reach its goals, with additional financing of up to $2 billion.

Seriously, a commission? In other words, they’re admitting before this whole charade gets put into place that they have no hope of securing the border.

Senator Rubio, please don’t allow yourself to be played by the likes of Sen. Durbin and Sen. Schumer. You don’t need to do that to be able to run for president in 2016. Yesterday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Jeff Sessions showed Republicans a way out of the this trap. More on that in a subsequent post.

No Easter Egg Roll, but Food Stamps for Immigrants, and Free Phones for Drug Dealers?

Earlier today, the White House floated its latest phony crisis, the possible cancellation of the White House Easter egg roll. From Politico:

The next casualty of sequestration could be the Easter Bunny – at least according to a White House e-mail that recently landed in Capitol Hill inboxes.

The White House warned Congress that budget uncertainties could nix the annual Easter Egg Roll for kids, which is planned for April 1.

“[B]y using these tickets, guests are acknowledging that this event is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the Executive Office of the President and other federal agencies,” the White House cautioned, according to two Capitol Hill sources who provided the language. “If cancelled, the event will not be rescheduled.”

Really? No money for the Easter egg roll? That’s a shame, and also pretty ridiculous since the Easter egg roll is funded mostly by private money, but not nearly as bad as the threat to cancel meat inspections. Times must really be tough over the FDA, or maybe not …From Fox News:

Salmonella outbreaks. E. coli outbreaks. Millions of dollars in economic losses.

These are among the scenarios the Obama administration warned about last month as it claimed the sequester would force the U.S. Department of Agriculture to furlough meat inspectors.

But while the administration prepares to take that step, it continues to pursue a “partnership” with the Mexican government to “raise awareness” about food stamps among immigrants from that country. When a top Senate Republican proposed cutting off funds for that program last week — in the form of an amendment to a budget resolution — Democrats on the Budget Committee shot it down.

The Fox News piece details the efforts by Sen. Jeff Sessions to get to the bottom of this push to extend food stamp benefits to immigrants, which began during George W. Bush’s administration. (More about Sen. Sessions great work on this issue here.)Now we have 1.23 million immigrants on food stamps! And, at least in Illinois, you don’t even have to be a legal immigrant to get them. From Illinois Legal Aid:

Some programs in Illinois are available without checking on immigration status, including:

  • The Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants & Children (WIC)

  • Medical care for children under the All Kids program

  • Kindergarten through 12th grade public education, and school lunch and breakfast programs

  • Head Start

I guess that helps Agriculture Sec. Vilsack meet his goal of getting at least 75% of eligible people on food stamps.

Meanwhile, as we noted last month, many of the free cellphones provided by the Lifeline program may have been obtained fraudulently, and some of the downtrodden who are taking advantage of this essential government program, have more than one phone. Check out this local news report from Baltimore detailing the success drug dealers have getting their hands on one of these taxpayer-subsidized phones.

Now back to work, Serf. You’ve got a lot of people to support.

Biden’s Buffoonish Gun Ban Side Show: Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

This week we witnessed the ridiculous, predictable, and sometimes infuriating, spectacle of Joe Biden’s silly sideshow, in which he pretended that he and Barack Obama were interested in finding “solutions” to “gun violence,” when in fact for years their “solution” was pre-determined; specifically, infringement on the 2nd amendment rights of law abiding citizens. This idiotic Kabuki aside, we don’t need to wait until Tuesday to hear them unveil these “comprehensive” proposals. It’s a forgone conclusion. Everyone in this administration is hard-wired to believe that you have no right to defend yourself with a firearm, and everybody knows it. Even NBC’s David “Howdy Doody” Gregory can figure this one out. Will B. Hussein Obama attempt to continue his pattern of lawlessness by trampling on our rights with an end run around Congress, an executive order? We’ll talk about that with our guest, Mark Walters, columnist for Concealed Carry Magazine, host of Armed American Radio, and author of Lessons from Armed America.

Speaking of Mr. Gregory, as we warned you, despite his willful violation of the draconian anti-freedom D.C. gun laws that he enthusiastically supports, the authorities let him skate scot free, proving that there are two systems of justice, one for the rich and powerful, and one for the little people. Ah, but, Bitter Clinger, in this case, there’s more to it than that. Is it possible that the personal relationship between someone very close to Mr. Gregory and D.C. Attorney General, the man who decided to give the liberal newsreader a break, Irv Nathan, could have had something to do with this case?

Barack Obama presented his latest political hack for an important cabinet position, Jack Lew, infamous for his laughable lies about Barack Obama’s budget to a Senate panel in February 2011. The awesome Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) vows that he must not be confirmed. What say you?
