Harkin on Health Care, Nelson's Kickback, and Global Cooling

Have you seen or heard of Senator Harkin's comments on the health care bill on tv or in your newspaper? Neither have I. So, let his own words inform you of the intent of this health care bill: "Make no mistake, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a profoundly progressive bill. As Ezra Klein wrote in the Washington Post, "The bill is the most important social policy achievement since the Great Society."

"To be sure, the path to securing 60 votes was paved with painful compromises. That's also the way our predecessors were able to get the votes to pass Social Security and Medicare, both of which had big gaps in coverage when they were first enacted. They passed bills that were less than a full loaf, and then they came back for more in later years.

"Instead of that "partial loaf" analogy, I like to think of this bill as like a starter home. It is not the mansion of our dreams. But it has a solid foundation, giving every American access to quality, affordable coverage. It has an excellent, protective roof, which will shelter Americans from the worst abuses of health insurance companies. And this starter home has plenty of room for additions and improvements."

It has been said that Harkin declared health care to be an "inalienable right" now - forever. And here I thought that inalienable rights, like those in our Bill of Rights, are only those given by God, for they are by definition incapable of being taken away, given up, or transferred to another. One exception to this rule, we know, is those rights being declared or given away by tyrants. Could Senator Harkin have been any more clear about the intent of Democrats? And I say that we can call Nebraska's exclusion from ever having to pay for Medicare taxes an inalienable right for Nebraskans, given by this proposed health care bill. We are in serious trouble....


  • I know I've written about this before, but it deserves to be repeated: As reported this time by CNS News: A provision deep within the Senate’s 2,000-page health-care overhaul bill would make it impossible, once approved, for the legislation to be repealed or changed by future Congresses -- a provision that a Senate Republican and a conservative analyst say is unconstitutional. On page 1,020, the bill states: “It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection.” Senator Jim DeMint is challenging the constitutionality of this section, as well as others.

  • ObamaCare also legislates racial discrimination to such an extent that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights was compelled to send letters to the president and congressional leaders warning about the "racially discriminatory provisions" in the Senate's health care bill.

  • Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) reached out Thursday evening to South Carolina GOP Attorney General Henry McMaster, the leader of a group of 13 Republican state attorneys general who are threatening to file suit against the Senate health care bill, and urged him to forgo any legal action, POLITICO has learned.

    According to a copy of a memo sent by McMaster’s chief of staff to other GOP state attorneys general detailing the call, Nelson asked McMaster to “call off the dogs,” a reference to recent threats by the state AGs to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a Medicaid provision in the bill that benefits Nebraska at the expense of other states. . . .

    The memo, written by McMaster Chief of Staff Trey Walker, explains that Nelson told McMaster that the Medicaid deal had not been his idea, and that the same Medicaid exemption would be extended to other states.

    “Senator Nelson insisted that he had not asked for the Cornhusker Kickback to be placed in the U.S. Senate version of the health care bill to secure his vote. Senator Nelson told the attorney general that it was simply a ‘marker’ placed in the U.S. Senate version of the bill and assured the attorney general that it would be ‘fixed,’ says the memo [Right]

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended Congress' work on a healthcare bill Tuesday saying the process has displayed historic transparency, just as C-SPAN mounts an effort to open the negotiations. Pelosi also hinted that holding informal negotiations--likely without TV cameras--might be the most practical way to push the legislation through

    "We will do what is necessary to pass the bill," Pelosi said.

  • Even if Umar Farouq Abdulmuttalab had never boarded that Christmas flight from Amsterdam to Detroit wearing explosive underpants, a passage on page 17 of a report published in July by the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security would still be eye-popping.

    "Not all known or reasonably suspected terrorists are prohibited from boarding an aircraft, or are subject to additional security screening prior to boarding an aircraft," says the passage.

    More than eight years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, people boarding commercial flights in the United States -- and sometimes those boarding international flights bound for the United States -- are still not screened against the government's full Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

    This is not an oversight. It is a policy.

  • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Are you aware that our government is set to offer a plea bargain to the underpants bomber?? Now that will probably not deter further terrorists, in my estimation! I do have to wonder what wonderful enticement will be given, so that he will be ready to tell all he knows against his fellow jihadists, don't you?
  • ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Following our President's silence for four days after the underpants bomber's failed attemp to explode an airplane en route to Detroit, we get this news: Meanwhile, the White House was working overtime to build a case against Bush regarding the failed terrorist attack on America. A source in the White House counsel's office told The American Spectator of memos frantically seeking information that would "show that the Bush Administration had had far worse missteps than we ever could". [Now that's real leadership, isn't it?]
  • ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • A bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the Obama White House not to go forward with plans to send a number of Yemeni terrorists now being held in the Guantanamo Bay detention facility back to their home country. But the Obama White House insists it will continue to send those Gitmo inmates to Yemen -- a country now recognized as a hotbed of terrorism so dangerous that the U.S. has decided to close its embassy there. "We've had close dialogue with the Yemeni government about the expectations that we have as far as what they're supposed to do when these detainees go back," Brennan said. Washington Examiner, by Byron York

  • As of yesterday, President Obama has declared that we will not be sending Yemen detainees back to Yemen. Perhaps he is learning just what a threat America is facing from jihadist Muslims....This does, however, make more difficult his campaign pledge to close Gitmo. Oh, well - what's one more pledge broken - and this one for good reasons.

  • According to Jim DeMint, he has not put a hold on Erroll Southers for the TSA, but he objected to a request to have Southers confirmed by unanimous consent - that is, without a roll call vote. DeMint wants to discuss the notion of TSA agents being allowed to form a bargaining unit thus taking the safety of our entire air transport system out of the hands of the geniuses who check your hand bags and pack packs, and putting it into the hands of union executives. Total time elapsed between Obama's inaugural and Senate floor action? 303 days. No holds. No filibusters. Just showing how important Obama and the Senate Dems felt this whole thing was, prior to Christmas day.

    The elapsed time between DeMint objecting to the unanimous consent request and the attack by the Tighty-Whitey Terrorist? 36 days.

  • Do you remember the story about how many times the Bertha Lewis of ACORN has visited the White House? There is an update from Andrew Brietbart of ACORN videos fame - at According to Politico’s Ben Smith, the Bertha Lewis who went to the White House is not ACORN’s CEO but another woman named “Bertha Lewis.” I contacted Smith to tell him that Big Government would offer a correction if the “administration official” who offered the information went on record and told us who the “other” Bertha Lewis is and got the unnamed administration source to come out from behind the veil of anonymity and use his/her name. So far, according to unnamed White House sources, “different” people with the familiar names of Malik Shabazz, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers were discovered on White House visitors logs. As I skeptically asked on my Twitter account, “What are the odds?”

    First thing Monday morning, Smith contacted the White House and White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki came from behind her anonymous veil and confirmed for Smith, “it was a different Bertha Lewis, though she declined to share details about that visitor, citing privacy reasons.”‘

  • As posits: Must have been the Bertha Lewis who is president of the Bertha Lewis Society only for people named Bertha Lewis.

  • And as if we need further proof of the degradation of our American Society and henceforth our chosen language, here is what Amanda Simpson, believed to be America's first openly transgender presidential appointee, says about the job she starts Tuesday in the U.S. Commerce Department. "Being the first sucks," she told ABC "I'd rather not be the first but someone has to be first, or among the first. I think I'm experienced and very well qualified to deal with anything that might show up because I've broken barriers at lots of other places and I always win people over with who I am and what I can do." I don't care what her genetics are. I do care that a government official sinks to such language, just as I cared when our First Lady chose to depart the Presidential airplane wearing short shorts... Oh - you think I'm making that up? If so, go here: It shows to me a lack of respect for America and the Presidency, as well as our former standing in the world.

    Jihadists, Nancy Pelosi, Immigration

  • President Barack Obama has ordered a "surge" of federal air marshals to be in place by Feb.1 in what officials said was a "race against time," with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline, although there is no specific imminent threat, federal officials told ABC News. [Seems President Obama has finally figured it out - we can only hope.]
  • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • As further proof that the mainstream media is in Obama's camp, there is this story from American Thinker: MS-NBC spent much of its Monday prime-time promoting the spurious contention that intelligence agencies may have deliberately allowed the attempted Christmas Day plane bombing to proceed in order to make Obama look bad.

    This contemptible idea was floated during the "Countdown" comedy hour when The Sportscaster reported "Breaking News" that White House sources believe the intelligence community's failure to stop the plot "might have been intentional and not accidental." Further, "the information was in some way deliberately withheld from some higher or broader authority to make someone look bad," leaving little doubt that the victim of this new, vast right-wing conspiracy was Obama.

    Earlier, fellow Obama sock-puppet Richard Wolffe reported that White House officials said the intelligence debacle was the result of "a failure by individuals who maybe had an alternative agenda."

  • Only 12 days after the panty bomber tried to blow up an airplane over Detroit, our government has decided to revoke his Visa! Isn't that just great?!
  • ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Michelle Malkin writes: Even absent the intelligence we had on this al-Qaida-trained operative before his fateful trip, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was required to know better than to issue a coveted entrance pass to a globe-trotting, Nigerian-born nomad. [Why is she not being given any responsibility?]
  • ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  •,_global_warming_trumps_national_security There is no doubt that the CIA should have done something more to prevent this attack. But, then again, President Obama has been keeping them busy. With global warming. Seriously.

  • According to the New York Times on Jan. 5, just a few days after Obama excoriated the CIA publicly, "The nation's top scientists and spies are collaborating on an effort to use the federal government's intelligence assets -- including spy satellites and other classified sensors -- to assess the hidden complexities of environmental change." This project, the Times reports, "has the strong backing of the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In the last year, as part of the effort, the collaborators have scrutinized images of Arctic sea ice from reconnaissance satellites in an effort to distinguish things like summer melts from climate trends …"

    While missing a potentially catastrophic terror attack is problematic, it's good to know that we've got the inside dossier on the mating habits of polar bears.

  • 'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj'
  • Snopes has confirmed the following: Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development

    Back in 2007, Alikhan, the son of Pakistani immigrants, was instrumental in removing the Muslim terror tracking plan in LA.

    The controversial Muslim 'Mapping' Plan of the Los Angeles Police Department is now "dead on arrival" according to Chief William Bratton.

    In 2007 the German publication Der Spiegel stated that Alikhan is a "devout Sunni"

    DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

    [It is easy to see just how reticent Barack Obama is to secure our country against those who wish us dead. The fox is guarding our hen house, and even CAIR is full of praise for these appointments.]

    Atlas Shrugs described Professor Agha Saeed of the American Muslim Task Force (AMT) who spoke of the aftermath of 9/11 and the struggle of the Muslim Community against the pervasive atmosphere of Islamophobia and hatred. It was a struggle against the tide - a very strong tide - to prevent Muslims in America from being marginalized and silenced.Professor Saeed ....issued five demands from Muslims to the Department of Justice. These demands included a cessation to the infiltration by spies of mosques and an end to the introduction of agents provocateur. In addition there was to be a cessation of attempts to undermine Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Award winning war correspondent Michael Yon was detained and handcuffed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Yesterday by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel.

    At this point the TSA officials escorted Yon to a designated screening area where they examined the contents of his bag. “Then they asked me how much money I make,” Yon said. Yon suggested to the TSA officials that the question was inappropriate and unrelated to transportation security. The award-winning blogger noted another TSA officer approached Yon: “he asked who do I work for.” ”I did not answer the question which clearly was upsetting to the TSA officers.”

    Yon was escorted to a room elsewhere in the airport where he said he remained silent during much of the questioning. According to Yon, “they handcuffed me for failing to cooperate. They said I was impeding their ability to do their job.”

    Yon continued, “They said I wasn’t under arrest, but I’m handcuffed. In any other country, that qualifies as an arrest.”

    Ultimately Port Authority police released Yon; according to Yon, the police were “completely professional.”

    In January of 2009, Yon’s article “Border Bullies” detailed a Homeland Security officer coercing a friend to give up her e-mail password so that he could read private email correspondences between her and Yon. [''You don't professionalize until you federalize'' - Tom Daschle]

    [Isn't it just great to see that the TSA is working so hard to protect us?]

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey student of history, [that would be Barack Obama] you claim Gitmo is a recruiting tool for Al-Qaeda. Where was Gitmo when they attacked the World Trade Centers in ‘93? Where was Gitmo when they attacked the two U.S. Embassies in Africa? Where was Gitmo when they attacked the USS Cole in ‘98. Where was Gitmo when they attacked the World Trade Centers in ‘01? The fact is that the detention facility was created in the wake of a declaration by Congress in September 2001 that “all necessary and appropriate force” should be used “against those nations, organizations, or persons” [emphasis added] responsible for the attacks of September 11 [That seems to prove that Gitmo is NOT the reason jihadists hate us.... Neither is poverty, as most jihadists are middle class or well-to-do. In point of fact, the recent murder of our 7 CIA agents in the middle east has been said by Al Quaeda to be a direct response to our killings of their civilians via US drones.]

    From NPR: The United States military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has been holding prisoners from the invasion of Afghanistan and the war on terror since early 2002.
    As a blogger wrote: Do not … REPEAT … do not ask Barack Obama how moving the GTMO prisoners to a prison on domestic soil will somehow cause Al Qaeda to say, “Yo, we’re cool now.” In fact, if GTMO causes Al Qaeda to want to come to America to kill Americans, how much more so will a prison in Illinois incite them to come here and not only kill us but also free their brethren.


    US border officials were aware that an alleged extremist was on a Detroit-bound flight on Christmas Day and were ready to question him on landing, according to a report in the the Los Angeles Times.


    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, piqued with White House pressure to accept the Senate health reform bill, threw a rare rhetorical elbow Tuesday at President Barack Obama, questioning his commitment to his 2008 campaign promises.

    A leadership aide said it was no accident.

    Pelosi emerged from a meeting with her leadership team and committee chairs in the Capitol to face an aggressive throng of reporters who immediately hit her with C-SPAN’s request that she permit closed-door final talks on the bill to be televised.

    A reporter reminded the San Francisco Democrat that in 2008, then-candidate Obama opined that all such negotiations be open to C-SPAN cameras.

    There are a number of things he was for on the campaign trail,” quipped Pelosi, who has no intention of making the deliberations public.

    Senior House Democratic leadership aides say Pelosi was pointedly referring to Obama’s ’08 pledge not to raise taxes on the middle class, which she interprets to include a tax on so-called Cadillac health care plans that offer lavish benefit packages to many union members.

    [And now we learn that we Americans will get ONE hour of time watching their health care bill finagling. Isn't that terrific! They are being oh so open and transparant! Sounds like the perfect amount of time for an infomercial to me.]


    More global cooling headlines and stories:

    Midwest bracing for heavy
    snow, wind chills of -50

    Human Events reports:
    Dallas had its first “White Christmas” in more than 80 years and Oklahoma City broke a 95-year old record by getting 14 inches of snow -- the previous record was 2.5 inches for that day.

    From the Irish National Meteorological Service, Met Éireann, December 2009 was “the coldest December for 28 years over most of the country and the coldest of any month since February 1986 at a few stations.” It’s not just Europe and Asia that are cold: From Columbia, Missouri (January 4, 2010), “If Columbia doesn’t warm up to more than 20 degrees by Wednesday, this winter will make the list of worst cold snaps in Columbia history. The National Weather Service predicts temperatures will stay below 20 degrees through Saturday, which would be the ninth day of temperatures that low. A streak that long hasn’t happened since 1983.”
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overridden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: 'take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver's license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be ...'

    Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram this legislation through, as with the health care bill. What a surprise! Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his book, How the Obama Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections.

    From American Thinker blogpost: Clarice Feldman
    The blog And So It Goes in Shreveport notes that a petition to recall Senator Mary Landrieu has been accepted for filing by the Louisiana Secretary of State. Citizens have 180 days to file enough signatures to get this on a ballot:On Dec. 29, a recall petition was filed by Ruben Leblanc of New Iberia, for the recall of Mary Landrieu. Sec. of State Jay Darden stated that he WILL accept the filing."

    If the story reported by The Dead Pelican this weekend holds true, that she used her vote for Obamacare to bargain for national democratic support for her brother's mayoral campaign, I'd say more than a recall is in order. We're keeping our eyes on that story and will update accordingly.

    When he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people finally woke up, but it was too late.

    Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ? Personally, I like happy endings.

    If you are an Obama Supporter, please recognize that you have elected a president who is a 'socialist'. There is simply no debate about these facts. But you need to seek the truth; you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

    Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there as well, but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth?

He does not call them down on any specifics, and he has failed to refute any facts presented – because it is all true. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn't. Please, find the truth, it will set you free.
