Obamacare subsidy enrollees could see substantial increases in 2015, Nine state analysis, Shopping and switching plans may help, Avalere study

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama

“If you’ve got health insurance we’re going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500 per family per year. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.”…Barack Obama

 

“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

 

Obama, Valerie Jarrett, the Obama camp are good at what they specialize in, diversions.

The impact of Obamacare has been marginalized by the lack of coverage due to the diversions.

From Kaiser Health News June 26, 2014.

“Health insurance premiums for people with subsidies could increase substantially in some markets – but consumers who shop around may not end up paying more, a new report out Thursday says.

Shopping around may not be as likely, however, under proposed rules also released Thursday by the Obama administration which will automatically re-enroll the vast majority of those who are signed up for plans through the online marketplaces. Automatic re-enrollments might ease the experience, but will also make it less likely consumers will check out other options.

Consumers who choose to would still be able to shop around, the administration said. And the Avalere study shows they should.

The analysis of rates filed in nine states found that as insurers battle for a share of the individual market, some plans that were the low-priced leaders this year are not the least expensive options next year.

Because subsidies through the Affordable Care Act are tied to “benchmark” plans, which are the second lowest-cost silver-tier plans in each market, even those with subsidies could see the monthly amounts they pay change. In most of the states studied, the second lowest-cost plan is changing.”

“If you are a savvy buyer, you could pick a low-cost plan and probably avoid a significant rate increase,” said Caroline Pearson, vice president at Avalere. But those who do nothing may end up paying more.

Here’s how it works: Subsidy-eligible individuals – those who earn between about $11,480 and $45,960 – can enroll in any plan they like. But those who choose plans other than the benchmark silver plans would pay the difference in monthly premium cost, dollar for dollar.

In a hypothetical example cited by Avalere, a 40-year-old consumer who enrolled this year in a $214-a-month benchmark plan paid $58 of her own money toward the premium after the subsidy. But now her insurer plans to raise rates next year to $267 a month. Because other plans have come in lower, her plan is no longer the benchmark. That benchmark plan is now a different one, whose price is $231 a month.

Unless she switches plans, the consumer must now pay the difference. Her income has stayed the same, so her subsidy of $173 a month remains unchanged. But, because her plan is now $36 more than the benchmark plan, her monthly payment rises to $94 for the premium – unless she switches to the lower-cost plan.

Instead of narrowing, as might be expected, the range in premium prices widened from 2014 to 2015, Pearson said.”

    Good morning.

  2. CW……
    Sounds,and looks like GOOD OLE BAIT AND SWITCH to me.

  3. OT…….AND NOW
    The SCOTUS has once again rammed Soetoro’s SHI# back down his throat. Now all the American people need to do is get off their a$$es and FINISH the job. The SCOTUS HAS OPENED THE DOOR!

  4. CabbyAZ…….
    Thanks loads for the TIMELY post on the Hobby Lobby decision. He is now far less than even a LAME DUCK. His accomplishments while in office equals…….ZERO, just like his so aptly earned nickname.

  5. EVERYBODY…….
    There is now a lot of hype going on by the LAME STREAM MEDIA,wherein they are trying to make people believe that by voting Democratic in the primaries, and in the 2016 general election that so doing will FIX all the problems that Soetoro,and his goon squad have brought about. If you believe the LSM bullshi# you must also think UP IS DOWN. It will NOT CHANGE A DAMN THING,but voting Democratic WILL COMPOUND THE PROBLEMS we are facing……beyond imagination,and if you think this is bullshi# then I personally invite you to vote Democratic,and then take particular notice if it helped you or HINDERED you……but don’t WHINE on our shoulders,when you discover the truth.

  6. BYE BYE all have a great day!

  14. Obama (gag) speaking on immigration, saying congress must act. What a flippin joke. Mr. President, we already have immigration LAWS on the books. The problem is YOU are not enforcing them.

    We don’t need reform….Secure the dang border and quit using your pen and your rhetoric to encourage illegals to invade my country. The laws have already been passed. In case you forgot, it is your DUTY to faithfully execute them. Liar, Liar

    Just watched an impeccable display of whining and petulance by the boy king Obama re: him not getting his way with “comprehensive” immigration reform. The crisis on the southern border is due to his previous pen and executive order on immigration policy — and we shouldn’t borrow more money in order to send to these countries. We have chronic unemployment here in America and Obama is the one playing politics to “fundamentally transform” America even more into a welfare nanny-state and create an expanded voting electorate for the liberal progressives. What a pathetic performance. He should have come out and pledged his support to Israel to destroy the forces of evil who killed three Jewish teenagers, one an American.

    Want To Get Obama Out Of Office? Don’t Impeach; Do This Instead!
    We can either hope, or we can take direct action!

    Allan Erickson — June 30, 2014

    This president and his comrades long ago forfeited the right to govern because they have frequently violated the trust of the American people–and the law. If polling data is accurate, the clear majority of people have no confidence in this regime, knowing that the longer it remains in power, the more damage will be done–some of it irreparable.

    People talk endlessly about impeachment. So long as the Senate is Democrat-controlled, and the media is in Obama’s pocket, it is not going to happen–and besides, time is running out. Others suggest charges of treason, but there is no political courage in Washington to file charges and then prosecute.

    Consequently, we can either hope for the best in the next two election cycles, during which time the world economy may collapse and Jihad might pound us into a deeper hole; or we can take direct action.

    It is time for The People to show this government that we are in charge; that in America, government acts according to our consent, not against our will. I suggest We the People call a General Strike, one involving the following measures and demands:

    Tax revolt: refuse to pay income taxes until such time as the following steps are taken to correct course, A-Z
    Repeal ObamaCare
    Secure the border
    Enforce current immigration laws to the fullest; reform the system without granting amnesty
    Immediately deport all individuals who have a criminal record of any kind
    Cut federal spending 20% across the board immediately, and then prioritize spending according to national polls–which will most likely demand inclusion of healthcare for Veterans. Top priorities for most Americans today include jobs, the economy, corrupt politicians, education, government spending, debt, and taxes.
    Flat tax: 20% for the upper income brackets (more than $300,000 gross per year), 15% for the middle class (annual gross income between $70,000 and $300,000), 8% for the lower class ($30,000 to $70,000), no tax for those below $30,000 per year. Abolish the rest of the income tax code. Abolish the death tax, estate tax, capital gains tax, and set corporate tax rates at 15% federal, 8% state, 2% local.
    Provide tax breaks to new businesses, especially if they hire veterans.
    Return defense spending to what it was in 2007 as a percentage of the overall federal budget
    Put our missiles back in Poland and reaffirm our total commitment to Israel
    Affirm our Christian Founding by introducing resolutions to each state legislature and prohibit any and all harassment of Christians, canceling all efforts to violate conscience with regard to moral issues–particularly relating to same sex marriage and abortion. No further prosecutions of Christians for refusing to participate in activities associated with objectionable behaviors.
    Give the military full authority to come up with a strategy to destroy ISIS, and turn them loose to execute that strategy. Obviously, the War on Terror is too much for some civilian President alone. The military and intelligence communities should come up with an overall strategy to present to the Congress and the President for approval, installation, and action.
    Roll back every EPA regulation promulgated by that agency during the last six years
    Cancel Common Core and dismantle the Dept. of Education, returning education to localities.
    Push all authority with regard to abortion and same sex marriage down to the state level, insisting the judiciary stop trying to legislate and allowing the will of the people to prevail as expressed in elections on propositions placed on the ballot by the people. Only states can decide on the matter of public funding of abortion.
    Term limits in Congress: six terms maximum for Representatives, two terms maximum for Senators.
    Pass a law that requires an audit of the Federal Reserve System.
    Pass a law that requires all government officials to abide by any law they pass.
    Abolish the IRS. Reform DOJ. Suspend all pending gun control legislation.
    Abolish the Energy Department.
    Reform regulations allowing for radical energy development, allowing the market to dictate where and how development occurs rather than arbitrarily giving preference to ‘green’ energy.
    Abolish affirmative action and all hate crimes legislation.
    Affirm the original intent of the Constitution: insist the federal government get back in line with the original definitions of federal authority and abide the limitations placed on the central government as defined. Return to the original method of selection Senators— Article I, section 3: “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, chosen by the legislature thereof for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.”
    Repair our relationships with our allies; remind enemies that America is back.
    Reject Sharia as a matter of federal law and prohibit its influence in our legal system.
    Remove all Jihadists from government jobs and deport all of them.
    Each state will have the right to enact and enforce voter identification rules and regulations.
    If the tax revolt does not achieve each of these goals within one year, the following will occur to ‘encourage’ our leaders and representatives to earn our consent:
    Boycott the public schools
    Refuse to sign up for, or fund, ObamaCare: refuse to pay any penalties or taxes associated
    Refuse to show up for jury duty
    Stop quarterly business tax payments
    Stop work one day per week
    Urge garbage workers in D.C. to stop collecting
    Various acts of civil disobedience, non-violent of course

    If The People act in solidarity, asserting their rights and their will, legally and non-violently applying consistent pressure to send the clear message we expect results, then perhaps we’ll finally start the restoration process.

  26. I agree. I’ve been having a problem with Megyn Kelly myself these days starting when she was disrespectful to former VP, Dick Cheney, in my opinion. I’m boycotting her show for now. Greta and Hannity are the only ones I will watch these days.

  27. I also send my deepest sympathies and pray for the souls of the three slain Israeli teens. Interesting how the first lady tweeted about the girls in Africa, but said nothing about the Jewish boys in Israel. When a Palestinian dies, the lamestream media goes almost 24X7 about it. I hope Israel gives Hamas what it deserves.

    That is what they said they would do. We can thank the DO GOODER half wits in DC. I personally believe that the Keystone would have helped the US immeasurably. No it would not solve all of our problems but it would have put a hell of a lot of TAXPAYERS to work. Unfortunately such a pipeline needs an ubundance of skilled workers…..a big percentage of which are certified welders. There would have been a need also for Certified Machinery repairmen. All jobs would have required HEAVY past experience in ALL areas of endeavor. But alas, I knew that Canada would not wait very long for the WHACKEY HOUSE to decide. Waiting has already cost Canada billions of dollars.
    **********************************************************************
    Did anybody watch Megyn Kelly interview the SLIMEY LITTLE BASTARD last night. I did not watch it. Just wondering. I personally feel like the slimey little SOB should NOT BE GIVEN ANY PUBLICITY of any kind,from anybody simply because doing so reinforces their TWISTED MINDSET……..FURTHER WHAT MAKES HIM THINK THAT HE,AND HIS pimple faced followers ARE THE JUDGE AND JURY OF ALL OTHER PEOPLE. As I said before I PRAY that the twisted little BASTARD will fall into an open manhole and disappear forever.

  29. Here is another thought……..If all taxpayers in the US refused to pay income taxes for one year it would probably finish the federal government as well as the SICK TWISTED PEOPLE who are now controlling our government. Without somebody else’s money to spend the FED would be broke …..totally. But as I said for such an action to work it would require ALL taxpayers in the US along with all corporations to refuse to pay taxes. There are not jails enough to hold 330,000,000 people. To finish the fed would only require the stroke of a pen, along with a formal Declaration of Severance,to disenfranchise the Corporation that is loosely referred to as the Federal government. Such an action would also put about 150,000 federal employees,along with all of the alleged officials of all three branches of the fed (parasites) on the street. It would also dismiss all of the now corrupted FEDERAL JUDGES,including the SCOTUS. With the stroke of the same pen a temporary government could be put in place,who are under heavy bonding,with imprisonment clauses if they try to do wrong,as interim government managers. New money would need to be printed,and all debts formally declared “PAID”. If the UN would attempt to intervine they would face our entire military might, whose basic orders would be “TAKE NO PRISONERS”. All of this is only a notion at this point,but as each day passes I believe that the notion will inevitably become a REALITY. Basically all of this follows the same path that our forefathers took in 1776,out of which came the Declaration of Independence,from the British tyranny.

    Boko Haram Members ‘Being Killed by Mystical Bees and Mysterious Snakes Possessed by Ghosts’

    Members of terror group Boko Haram have allegedly been arrested in Nigeria after fleeing a forest to escape deadly bites from “mystical bees” and “mysterious snakes”.

    According to Nigerian newspaper Vanguard, the captured insurgents claimed the creatures — possessed by ghosts — had killed many Boko Haram members.
    “We were told that the aggrieved people who had suffered from our deadly mission — including the ghosts of some of those we killed — are the ones turning into the snake and bees,” one militant told Vanguard. “Our leaders fled, too.”

    Boko Haram made headlines worldwide for the kidnappings of 220 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, last April.
    The girls are being allegedly smuggled to Cameroon and Chad and sold as brides to militants for 2,000 naira (£7). Others are being forced to marry their abductors.

    Some Boko Haram members believe the insects and reptiles are hunting the insurgents to punish them for the mass abduction.
    “We decided to flee when almost all our comrades are leaving the Sambisa [Forest] because of constant attacks by snakes and bees, which we were told was as a result of Chibok abducted schoolgirls,” one insurgent said.

  31. I read that Obama is sending 200 combat troops to Iraq. Are You kidding me??? He says they are going to defend the Embassy. This sounds like a sure ambush to me and a disaster in the works. We have the finest, deadliest military in the world (despite O’s desperate efforts to dismantle it) but 200 Vs 10,000 sounds a bit daunting.

    What do our warrior veterans here say???

  32. My opinion is if we are going to re-enter Iraq, then we go in with a credible force, blow them to glass and come home to watch the finals of the world cup. Wham, Bam! O is foolishly trying to look like he is doing “something” while not upsetting his base. A half azzzed effort is dangerous…God help us.

  33. Note that Turley is a liberal and agrees with many of O’s policies, and yet he is very outspoken about this:

  34. Honor First,
    Your opinion is spot on……Unbelievable to send in 200 combat troops. Could this be another hostage event in the making? (Like in Iran in the late 70’s) His straddling the fence IS most dangerous. Politics is his driving force.

    Let me pose this question: What if ISIS (now they want to be called just IS) seized the embassy and held our military and others hostage? Would O yield to extortion? Say, if IS demanded that we surrender NYC or kill all Americans over there, what do you think O would do?

    Sometimes when I see him on TV lately, I wonder if he is going to “lose” it; I mean, go off the deep end and become unable to continue. He can’t take much of the type of pressure he is now getting, notwithstanding his goal to bring America down to its knees. His pathetic narcissism and ego can’t hold up to constant criticism. Something may have to give.

  35. Honor First……..
    If it was up to me I would put together a air force made up of about 100 PUFFS, all updated with the very latest equipment,and accompany them with a like amount of A-10 Warthogs. You draw the bastards out into the open,then you use napalm on them and their equipment. Those who survive the initial assault,you send in the PUFFS to finish off. I would be willing to bet that they wouldn’t even have a chance to fire any Stingers. Stingers aren’t really that fast, they can be shot out of the air if a gunner sees it coming soon enough. Laser sighting makes it all a lot faster and super accurate. They would all have extra anuses,along with being fried WELL DONE by the Napalm. I would see to it that the napalm pods were dispensed like they were coming off a CONVEYER belt and it would be a continuous cloudburst of .50 cal.and 20 mm, gatling fire,combined with 120mm mortars…..all coming down like one hell of a rainstorm. I would bet that the stinking a$$ed goatherders would be screaming for ALLAH very quickly. Those who aren’t screaming are already DEAD. Without a doubt there would be civilian casualties,but I would bet that it would be not near as many unless the enemy got to them first. I would bet that ISIS would no longer exist as a force within 24 hours. Remember DESERT STORM,well Stormin Norman had the right idea. He went in to win,and before long the goatherders were surrendering to passing aircraft.

  36. ……..when you turn a battlefield into HELL ITSELF, the people who think they are real badasses end up COWERING in fear,babbling like nitwits,and CRYING FOR their MOMMIES.

  37. bye bye all,time for a snooze.

    wow, you pose an interesting and frightening question. You are right, i don’t think his ego can take much more criticism. He certainly cannot be shielded from all the negatives coming at him at once.

    I do believe his sending minimal troops is going to be a disaster…either hostages or headless (God forbid) soldiers dragged through the streets. Reminiscent of Mogadishu.

    Joe “plugs” Biden’s statement is coming true. ISIL (along with Russia, China and So America) is certainly testing his “mettle”. It appears that the pRez is once again choosing politics over National Defense. He is proving us all correct but that is no comfort! We need a strong, decisive leader not a community organizer. Right now, Netanyahu is responding decisively to his Country’s defense. He didn’t wait for poll numbers or some silly report……he acted and he acted swiftly. We have a CIC who is AWOL.

    On a side note:

    Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is on life support! I heard they are recalling 29 million vehicles…Does that not break all records? Does anyone find it curious that none of these recalls started until our gov’t sold their last shares of stock? GM has known about these safety issues for years, but conveniently nothing was acknowledged until the gov’t got out of the auto business.

    Obama Taunts Republicans Over His Excessive Use of Executive Orders…So Sue Me

    “Obama continues to have the maturity level of a second-grader.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama defiantly dared congressional Republicans on Tuesday to try to block his efforts to act on his own and bypass a divided Congress that has thwarted his policy initiatives.

    “So sue me,” he taunted on a sweltering day, as he pushed lawmakers to pay for road and bridge repairs. “I’m not going to apologize for trying got do something.”

    Obama struck an aggressive tone in the face of a lawsuit threat from House Speaker John Boehner and in the wake of two defeats before the Supreme Court, including a unanimous decision from the court that he overreached when he appointed members of the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was in recess.

    His remarks came a day after Obama declared that he would act on his own to address weaknesses in the nation’s immigration system after Boehner informed him that the House would not take up an immigration overhaul this year.

    One section of the Constitution that the usurper is familiar with, and has studied, is what it takes to impeach his ass, and throw him out of office. In this regard, he knows he has Harry Reid to block any attempt at impeachment in the Senate, thus giving the usurper unrestricted, free reign over the Citizens without repercussions.

    This criminal usurper needs to be arrested like the common criminal that he is. Impeachment is for Presidents, not felons pretending to be a pResident!

    Immigration Criminal Voted for Gun Ban
    By Michael Filozof

    One of the chief concerns of America’s Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68, “[the] most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally be expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain improper [ascendancy] in our councils.”

    The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today’s climate of mass illegal immigration.

    The latest case in point is that of former New York State Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa, a Democrat, who plead guilty last week to immigration fraud charges that could land her in federal prison for up to ten years. The New York Times reports that Rosa, a native of the Dominican Republic, paid an American $8,000 for a fake marriage so she could illegally obtain American citizenship. (Since Rosa’s American “citizenship” was based on fraud, it would presumably be accurate to call Rosa an “illegal alien.”) Rosa subsequently got herself elected to the New York State Assembly in November 2012.

    In January 2013, the New York State Legislature passed the most draconian and unconstitutional gun control law in American history: the so-called New York “SAFE” Act. The SAFE Act forever banned virtually all military-style firearms issued in the last 60 years, including the FN-FAL, the AK-47, the M-14/M1A, the H&K G3, and the most popular target rifle in the U.S., the AR-15. The original version of the law banned any “ammunition feeding device” that could hold more than seven rounds. The SAFE Act requires a background check for every ammunition purchase and requires the registration of every ammunition purchase with the State Police. It requires any doctor or nurse who thinks you are unfit to own a firearm to inform the State Police, who are then required by law to confiscate all of your firearms (and it grants the doctor or nurse who filed the complaint immunity from civil lawsuit). The law bans nearly all private transfers of firearms – even transfers between brothers and sisters. It was passed at two o’clock in the morning without any debate; members of the Republican minority were presented with the 39-page bill fifteen minutes before the floor vote.

    Democratic Assemblywoman Rosa – a foreigner, an illegal alien, and now an admitted criminal — co-sponsored and voted for the law that destroyed the Second Amendment rights of 20 million New Yorkers. Rosa is the fifth Democrat who voted for the law to be indicted or convicted.

    Pro-amnesty Republicans who think that illegal aliens are nascent conservatives-in-waiting who will uphold the Constitution and traditional American values are simply barking mad.

    Is Obama Trying To Get Us Killed?
    By Stella Paul
    As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible?

    Say What? Michelle and Barack Discuss Whether There Is Crack Cocaine in the White House Pies

    http://www.ijreview.com/2014/07/152512-say-michelle-barack-discuss-whether-crack-cocaine-white-house-pies/

  56. So where is the Center for Disease Control? Nobody seems to be able to do the job they’re paid to do under the law with this criminal regime. This is criminal to hide the real danger of possible epidemics from the American people and their children:

    Headline now on Drudge:

    Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest

    A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

    In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

    My sources say Americans should be very concerned about the secrecy of the government camps.
    “There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

    The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

    The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

    “It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

    She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

    “Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”

    She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues.

    “It was not a good atmosphere in terms of health,” she said. “I would be talking to children and lice would just be climbing down their hair.”

    A former nurse at the camp told me she was horrified by what she saw.

    “We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country,” she said. “We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base.”

    Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses.

    “When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant – ‘Don’t mention that. Don’t say scabies,’” the nurse recounted. “But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don’t worry about it.”

    The nurse said the lice issue was epidemic – but everything was kept “hush-hush.”

    “You could see the bugs crawling through their hair,” she said. “After we would rinse out their hair, the sink would be loaded with black bugs.”

    The nurse told me she became especially alarmed because their files indicated the children had been transported to Lackland on domestic charter buses and airplanes.

    “That’s what alerted me,” she said. “Oh, my God. They’re flying these kids around. Nobody knows that these children have scabies and lice. To tell you the truth, there’s no way to control it.”

    I don’t mean to upset anyone’s Independence Day vacation plans, but were these kids transported to the camps before or after they were deloused? Anyone who flies the friendly skies could be facing a public health concern.

    The counselor told me the refugee camp resembled a giant emergency room – off limits to the public.

    “They did not want the community to know,” she said. “I initially spoke out at Lackland because I had a concern the children’s mental health care was not being taken care of.”

    She said the breaking point came when camp officials refused to hospitalize several children who were suicidal.

    “I made a recommendation that a child needed to be sent to a psychiatric unit,” the counselor told me. “He was reaching psychosis. He was suicidal. Instead of treating him, they sent him off to a family in the United States.”

    She said she filed a Child Protective Services report and quit her job.

    “I didn’t want to lose my license if this kid committed suicide,” she told me. “I was done.”

    The counselor kept a detailed journal about what happened during her tenure at the facility.

    “When people read that journal they are going to be astonished,” she said. ‘I don’t think they will believe what is going on in America.”

    So it was not a great surprise, she said, when she received a call from federal agents demanding that she return to the military base and hand over her journal.

    She said she declined to do so.

    “I didn’t go back to Lackland,” she said.

    Both workers told me while they have no regrets, they want to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals.

    “They’re going to crush the system,” the nurse told me. “We can’t sustain this. They are overwhelming the system and I think it’s a travesty.”

    Just saw my first Impeach Obama commercial, while watching FOX news.

  58. There should be a threat of a class action suit against all of these health care workers (what a laugh) who are shown to know the risks and yet agree to endanger the public. Maybe if THEY were on the end of the threats they just might wake up to the horror of a world they are involved in creating.

    ObamaCare coverage for millions in jeopardy as watchdog finds widespread data flaws

    ……Critics fear these issues also could cause chaos during the 2015 tax-filing season, as many would have to pay back subsidy money they were not entitled to.

    According to the report, those running the federal marketplace are having trouble resolving problems “even if applicants submitted appropriate documentation.”

    “The federal marketplace was generally incapable of resolving most inconsistencies,” the report said, claiming the government could not resolve 89 percent of the problems.

    Obama: Gay College Professor ‘Helped Shape How I Think’

    At an event to celebrate the “pride” of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people at the White House on Monday, President Barack Obama credited a homosexual professor who “helped shaped” his thinking on the LGBT rights agenda.

    “I just wanted to acknowledge him, because he helped shape how I think about so many of these issues, and those sort of quiet heroes that sometimes don’t get acknowledged,” Obama said of Lawrence Goldyn, one of his college professors at Occidental College.

    Probably both.

  65. These are important predictions made in 2005 – especially note Third, Fourth and Fifth Phases.
    Journalist Fouad Hussein Called It In 2005, His Prediction About the Course of Jihad Eerily Predict Today’s Events (hat tip to commenter Dora)

    Fouad Hussein spent time in prison with al-Zarqawi. He seems to have understood the strategy of Al Qaeda and the Grand Jihad.

    Events this weekend reminded me of this from 2005:

    The First Phase Known as “the awakening” — this has already been carried out and was supposed to have lasted from 2000 to 2003, or more precisely from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington to the fall of Baghdad in 2003. The aim of the attacks of 9/11 was to provoke the US into declaring war on the Islamic world and thereby “awakening” Muslims. “The first phase was judged by the strategists and masterminds behind al-Qaida as very successful,” writes Hussein. “The battle field was opened up and the Americans and their allies became a closer and easier target.” The terrorist network is also reported as being satisfied that its message can now be heard “everywhere.”

    The Second Phase “Opening Eyes” is, according to Hussein’s definition, the period we are now in and should last until 2006. Hussein says the terrorists hope to make the western conspiracy aware of the “Islamic community.” Hussein believes this is a phase in which al-Qaida wants an organization to develop into a movement. The network is banking on recruiting young men during this period. Iraq should become the center for all global operations, with an “army” set up there and bases established in other Arabic states.

    The Third Phase This is described as “Arising and Standing Up” and should last from 2007 to 2010. “There will be a focus on Syria,” prophesies Hussein, based on what his sources told him. The fighting cadres are supposedly already prepared and some are in Iraq. Attacks on Turkey and — even more explosive — in Israel are predicted. Al-Qaida’s masterminds hope that attacks on Israel will help the terrorist group become a recognized organization. The author also believes that countries neighboring Iraq, such as Jordan, are also in danger.

    The Fourth Phase Between 2010 and 2013, Hussein writes that al-Qaida will aim to bring about the collapse of the hated Arabic governments. The estimate is that “the creeping loss of the regimes’ power will lead to a steady growth in strength within al-Qaida.” At the same time attacks will be carried out against oil suppliers and the US economy will be targeted using cyber terrorism.

    The Fifth Phase This will be the point at which an Islamic state, or caliphate, can be declared. The plan is that by this time, between 2013 and 2016, Western influence in the Islamic world will be so reduced and Israel weakened so much, that resistance will not be feared. Al-Qaida hopes that by then the Islamic state will be able to bring about a new world order.

    The Sixth Phase Hussein believes that from 2016 onwards there will a period of “total confrontation.” As soon as the caliphate has been declared the “Islamic army” it will instigate the “fight between the believers and the non-believers” which has so often been predicted by Osama bin Laden.

    The Seventh Phase This final stage is described as “definitive victory.” Hussein writes that in the terrorists’ eyes, because the rest of the world will be so beaten down by the “one-and-a-half billion Muslims,” the caliphate will undoubtedly succeed. This phase should be completed by 2020, although the war shouldn’t last longer than two years.

    (There was an awful lot of poopooing about this “plan” at the time. In the same article der Spiegel wrote “The supposed master plan for the years 2000 to 2020 reads in parts more like a group of ideas cobbled together in retrospect, than something planned and presented in advance. And not to mention the terrorist agenda is simply unworkable: the idea that al-Qaida could set up a caliphate in the entire Islamic world is absurd. The 20-year plan is based mainly on religious ideas. It hardly has anything to do with reality — especially phases four to seven.” Yeah. Ok.)

    Bill Roggio wrote about it

    As did others

    Well done Uncle Barry and friends. Well done indeed.

    (You have to scroll down quite a lot to get to the article. That is why I posted it above.)

  66. More on Bill Ayers now on Kelly File.

  67. Kelly File will have FBI on that infiltrated the Weather Underground….probably with their rationalizations for not accomplishing much with Ayers.

  68. What the heck has Brit Hume been drinking? Claims Obama is trying to accelerate the deportation process….huh? There have been other things he’s said lately that sound more like apologizing for the creep. Especially he doesn’t ever touch on the real motives of Zero….pure evil….not just idealism or ideology.
