CNN: ObamaCare So-Called Success Story Says She Can’t Afford ObamaCare (November 19, 2013)

……….

From Obamacare Success Story to Obamacare Failure Story in 3 Days

November 19, 2013 at 5:01 pm

President Obama used Jessica Sanford as an Obamacare success story during his October 21 health care event. However, only three days later, Sanford turned into another Obamacare failure.

CNN reports that Sanford, a 48-year-old single mother from Washington state, purchased health insurance from the Washington state exchange. She was so excited that she emailed the President expressing her gratitude. He read the email during a health care event at the White House Rose Garden.

Three days later, Sanford said that she started receiving letters from her state’s exchange explaining that its tax credit calculator was incorrect, and instead of receiving a federal tax credit, she was not eligible. That meant the cost of her insurance would be higher than she anticipated—so high that she said she could not afford it.

Manufacturing Dissent is a documentary posthumously dedicated to Syrian Palestinian actor Mohamad Rafea, who was kidnapped, tortured and finally brutally murdered on Sunday November 4th 2012 by terrorist groups that have been set loose on the country since the US, UK and their western and Gulf State allies launched a covert war in Syria in early 2011, dressed up by the media as a “revolution”. The words spoken in this video by Rafea, and the courage he shows here, is why he was murdered.

Manufacturing Dissent is a feature about the psychological-warfare by the media and political establishment of the west and their allies aimed at facilitating the US, European and Israeli agenda of getting rid of the current Syrian government. It demonstrates how the media has directly contributed to the bloodshed in Syria.

Manufacturing Dissent includes evidence of fake reports broadcasted/published by the likes of CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and others and interviews with a cross section of the Syrian population including an actor, a craftsman, a journalist, a resident from Homs and an activist who have all been affected by the crisis.

Produced by journalists Lizzie Phelan and Mostafa Afzalzadeh.

RNC warns networks: Drop Clinton movies or lose 2016 GOP debates

By Jonathan Easley 08/05/13 11:49 AM ET 
 
 

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton.

“If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement.

In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt, Priebus called the documentaries “a thinly veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.”

“This special treatment is unfair to the candidates for the Democratic nomination in 2016 who might compete against Secretary Clinton … and to the Republican nominee should Clinton compete in the general election,” Preibus wrote.

The RNC chairman cited executives and employees from both networks who have been “generous supporters” of Clinton and the Democrats.

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Slams Surveillance State, Hails NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

– Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Steve Wozniak speaking with Piers Morgan this week. (Screenshot)Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has cheered NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and admonished the rise of the surveillance state.

Speaking with CNN‘s Piers Morgan on Thursday, Wozniak expressed support for the whistleblower and said, “I felt about Edward Snowden the same way I felt about Daniel Ellsberg, who changed my life, who taught me a lot with a book he wrote…” He continued:

Read the facts—it’s a government of, by and for the people. That sorta means we own the government. We’re the ones that pay for it, and then we discover something that our money is being used for.  That just can’t be, that level of crime.

On the proliferation of computers made possible by geniuses like him that enables widespread surveillance, Wozniak told Morgan:

I actually feel a little guilty about that but not totally. We created the computers to free the people up, give them instant communication anywhere in the world, any thought you could share it freely. That it was going to overcome a lot of the government restrictions. We didn’t realize that in the digital world there are a lot of ways to use the digital technology to control us, to snoop on us.  In the old days of mailing letters, you licked it, and when you got an envelope that was still sealed, nobody had seen it. You could have private communication. Now they say because it’s e-mail it cannot be private, anyone can listen.

In another recent interview, however, Wozniak offered a more in-depth look at his thoughts on government snooping.

A chance run-in with Wozniak at an airport last week offered Spanish language technological news site FayerWayer the opportunity to get the tech giant’s thoughts on the widespread government spying exposed by Snowden. In the interview, Wozniak lamented the current state of surveillance in the U.S..

When asked what he thought about the NSA’s PRISM program, Wozniak said:

I was brought up, for example, and my dad taught me that other countries when they got prisoners in a war, they tortured them.  But we Americans didn’t torture them; we gave them good food and clothing and everything.  And I was so proud of my country, you know?  And now I find out it’s just the opposite, you know.

And I just wish all these things I thought about the Constitution that made us so good as people — they’re kinda nothing.  They all dissolved with the Patriot Act.

There’s all these laws that say we can just sorta call anything terrorism and do anything we want without all these rights of courts to get in and say we aren’t doing the wrong things.

There’s not even a free, open court anymore.  And I read the Constitution and I don’t know how all this stuff happened.  It’s so clear what the Constitution says.  It’s extremely clear in the Bill of Rights.  One thing after another, after another.  It just got overturned, and that’s what a king does.

The king just goes out and has anyone rounded up, killed, put in secret prisons.

When I was brought up, I was taught that communist Russia was the ones that were gonna kill us and bomb our country and all this.  And communist Russia was so bad because they followed their people, they snooped on them, they arrested them, they put them in secret prisons, they disappeared them.  These kind of things were part of Russia.

You know, we’re getting more and more like that.  […]

Look at the guy who just turned over the information on what the NSA program was.

He said that anyone like him sitting at a terminal could instantly go and grab all the data of anyone they felt like, with no courts […] no warrants, nobody having to approve it.

That means there’s a thousand people in the CIA that could just sit and whoever they want … they could just go look at.

That sort of structure is wrong.  But troubles come from the top.

With the failure of the most recent cyber bill in the Senate and a possible Obama Executive Order, it seems the government is looking for other ways to beef up Internet protection. As heavy speculation swirls around the future of the Internet, RT’s Abby Martin sits down with Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, to speak about net neutrality and his fear that freedom on the Web might become a thing of the past.

Honor  amongst   Thieves!!

Perhaps  we  should   hold   Congress accountable  for  treason having  violated  the  Constitution that  they  swore to  protect?  

Or  perhaps for putting  self interest  and  politics,  not to  mention  profits  before  the  will of the  people  who  they  have  sworn to  represent? 

How is  it  that everything  that has  to  do  with  covering  up  the crimes of the  government  are  a matter  of   National  Security? 

When exactly will it  be in  the  interest of   the  People’s  security? 

It would be  nice  to  see the  people protected  with the  same   fervor  as  the   cover up of their  crimes?

Members of Congress seem to be playing a game of one-upsmanship in their increasingly hawkish reactions to the NSA leaks. Democrat Dianne Feinstein said whistleblower Edward Snowden committed an act of treason, and now Republican Peter King has decided that any journalists who reported the information leaked by Snowden should face criminal prosecution.

Anderson Cooper asked King if he thinks journalists revealing this information should be targeted. “Do you believe they should be punished as well? King said that they unequivocally should, and though he didn’t mention any specific names, he was mainly referring to Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who printed exclusive after exclusive with more information on government surveillance programs.

Here is King’s comment in its entirety: “Actually, if they–if they knew that this was classified information–I think action should be taken, especially on something of this magnitude. I know that the whole issue of leaks has been gone into over the last month. I think something on this magnitude, there is an obligation, both moral but also legal, I believe, against a reporter disclosing something which would so severely compromise national security. As a practical matter, I–I guess it happened in the past several years, a number of reporters who have been prosecuted under us, so the answer is yes to your question.”

On Monday, King declared Snowden to be not just a threat to national security, but “dangerous to the country” and a “defector.”

Time to Expose Them: Whistleblowers Can Take Down the System

susanne_posel_news_ JBstuff 022Susanne Posel
Occupy Corporatism
June 13, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

General Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency (NSA) is expected to appear before the Senate Appropriations Committee (SAC) to answer for PRISM.

Senator Ron Wyden wants hearings to be scheduled for Alexander and others to answer Congressional questions to explain once and for all he details about the government’s surveillance program.

House Speaker John Boehner and Senator Dianne Feinstein are adamant that Edward Snowden, NSA whistleblower, is a traitor and should be dealt with accordingly.

Closed meetings between federal intelligence heads and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) officials have taken place to discuss how to deal with the NSA leak.

With PRISM becoming a household name, those surveillance organizations working for the Obama administration are concerned about those programs that have yet to be exposed.

Chuck Hagel, Defense Secretary, has demanded that the Department of Defense (DoD) make sure that private sector contractors are clear that whistleblowing will not be tolerated.

The need for relationships of trust between those corporations and the federal government is necessary for the surveillance programs to continue.

In essence, it is the whistleblower that could take down the system.

Mainstream media (MSM) would have the populace believe that government surveillance is perfectly fine – as long as the citizens are told that they are being watched.

Under the PRISM program data collecting on citizens includes knowing:

• Websites visited
• IP addresses
• Type of device used
• Search terms used
• Passwords and logins

Alan F Westin, professor of public law and government at Columbia University, explained in an op-ed piece that: “American society is in the midst of a great debate over privacy, precipitated by the development and use of new surveillance devices and processes by both public and private authorities.”

Westin points out that the concern of the masses is that “these new means of augmented surveillance over individuals and groups now spans the ideological spectrum from extreme left to hard right. Worried protests against ‘Big Brother’ tendencies have become a staple item in the press, government proceedings, law reviews, and social science journals.”

The Signals Intelligence Service (SIS), begun after World War II and the pre-cursor for the NSA, dealt with telegraph corporations, much as the NSA collaborates with internet service providers (ISPs).

Under Project Shamrock , agents would be given telegraph intelligence under the cover of night through literal back-door deals.

For 30 years, Project Shamrock provided intelligence and was only exposed by Senator Frank Church during a Congressional investigation.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was passed to prevent another Project Shamrock from being implemented in secret by intelligence agencies within the federal government.

Since the George W. Bush Administration FISA has been twisted and broken with the advent of warrantless wiretapping. The Obama administration has taken FISA a step further and sought to manipulate it for their purposes to make illegal activity legal.

In a propaganda piece meant to discredit Snowden, USA Today and Verizon Wireless released a short broadcast that exposes the whistleblower.

• Snowden being in Hong Kong is fortuitous because of it’s connections to major cities across the globe through airports.
• Lindsey Mills, Snowden’s girlfriend is missing.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) is preparing a criminal case against Snowden, at the behest of the Obama administration. The FBI has been sent to interview Snowden’s friends and family.

Snowden has released documents that show the National Security Agency (NSA) has been involved in hacking attacks on officials in China, the Hong Kong University and students.

Snowden says that the NSA is conducting more than 61,000 cyber attacks globally.

He said: “We hack network backbones — like huge internet routers, basically — that give us access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers without having to hack every single one. Last week the American government happily operated in the shadows with no respect for the consent of the governed, but no longer.”

Snowden explained: “People who think I made a mistake in picking Hong Kong as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality… My intention is to ask the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate.”

Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee, former chief security officer for Hong Kong said that it was in Snowden’s “best interest to leave Hong Kong.”

House Representative Peter King adamantly declared that Snowden is “either a defector or traitor. “I think what he’s done has done incredible damage to our country. It’s going to put American lives at risk.”

King said that journalists should be punished for doing their job of exposing corruption “if they willingly knew that this was classified information, I think actions should be taken, especially something of this magnitude. I think something on this magnitude there is an obligation both moral but also legal I believe against a reporter disclosing something which would so severely compromise national security.”

King claims that whistleblowers are aiding al-Qaeda by exposing the details on how the US government conducts surveillance operations.

He said: “By giving [al-Qaeda] such detail about what we are doing that enables them to adjust their tactics.”

Texas woman arrested in ricin letters to Obama, Bloomberg: Officials

NBC News

In a new twist, the woman who blamed her husband for sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was charged Friday with sending the letters herself. NBC’s Ann Curry reports.

A Texas woman has been arrested in connection with the mailing of three letters containing a form of the poison ricin to President Obama, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, federal authorities said.

Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson of New Boston, Texas, originally called the Federal Bureau of Investigation claiming that her husband had sent the letters, officials said. The investigators found that she had sent the letters herself, they said.

Richardson is an actress with minor roles on television shows like The Walking Dead and the Vampire Diaries, and was arrested in Arkansas on charges that will be filed Friday afternoon, the authorities said. She has five sons, according to the New York Times.

Her husband, Nathaniel Richardson, is an Army veteran

Investigators have been probing who sent the three letters, all postmarked May 20 from Shreveport, La. and sent without a return address, authorities have said.

Authorities are still investigating the three ricin-laced letters sent to Michael Bloomberg, President Obama, and a lobbyist, but Texas-based actress Shannon Rogers Guess has said her Army veteran husband Nathanial Richardson is behind the letters. NBC’s Stephanie Gosk reports.

(CNN) — A Texas actress in a troubled marriage was arrested and charged Friday in connection with ricin-tainted letters that were mailed last month to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, authorities said.

Shannon Richardson, 35, also known as Shannon Rogers and Shannon Guess, initially told the FBI that her husband, Nathaniel, sent the ricin-laced letters, but a polygraph exam found her to be “deceptive” on the matter, court papers said.

Investigators found that her computer storage devices contained the text of threatening letters sent to the president, but the couple’s computer records show her husband couldn’t have printed them out because he was at work at the time, an FBI arrest affidavit said.

On Thursday, Shannon Richardson told investigators she mailed the ricin-tainted letters, but she claimed that her husband typed the letters and forced her to print and mail them, the affidavit said.

Her husband denied involvement and claimed his wife wanted to end their marriage and leave him, the affidavit said. He told investigators that his wife was “intentionally misleading” them, the court papers said.

Shannon Richardson is accused of mailing a threatening communication to the president and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney John M. Bales’ office in Texas.

Issa Sees Washington IRS Connection in Employee Interview

By Richard Rubin & William Selway Jun 3, 2013 12:11 PM CT

The tougher scrutiny given to Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service was “coordinated in all likelihood” from Washington, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee alleged, bolstering his case with excerpts of interviews with agency employees.

“The administration’s still trying to say there’s a few rogue agents in Cincinnati when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington,” Representative Darrell Issa, a California Republican, said yesterday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

In the interviews, one employee, described as “more senior,” said it was understood that the purpose was to single out conservative and Republican groups and that some officials in Washington were involved.“I mean, rogue agent?” the employee said, according to a partial transcript released by Issa’s office. “Even though I was taking all my direction from” technical experts in Washington, “I didn’t want my name in the paper for being this rogue agent for a project I had no control over.”

The panel didn’t disclose which employees were being quoted, what else they said or who in Washington was thought to be involved. Working with other panels, the oversight committee has said it was interviewing John Shafer, Gary Muthert, Liz Hofacre and Joseph Herr, all of whom worked in the Cincinnati office, where the applications were processed. Issa said the committee staff has 18 more interviews to do.

Tax Exempt

Previous public reports on the IRS’s scrutiny of Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt status, which started in 2010, have shown that some officials in Washington were aware of how the applications were being handled before a June 2011 meeting. At the time Lois Lerner, then director of exempt organizations, learned about what was happening and ordered it changed.

Nothing released yesterday directly undercuts that timeline or shows that Lerner or anyone above her was aware of the selective scrutiny earlier than stated.

Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on Issa’s committee, said in a statement yesterday that no witnesses have identified Washington IRS workers as ordering the use of “Tea Party” to screen applications.

“Rather than lobbing unsubstantiated conclusions on national television for political reasons, we need to work in a bipartisan way to follow the facts where they lead,” he said.

Three Executives

The revelation last month that the IRS applied extra scrutiny to small-government groups has led to six congressional inquiries, a criminal probe and three IRS executives, including Lerner, being pushed out of their jobs early or temporarily.

Danny Werfel, the acting IRS commissioner, is scheduled to make his first appearance at a congressional hearing today since taking over May 22.

Werfel announced several personnel moves today. He selected Heather Maloy, who had been overseeing large businesses, as deputy commissioner for services and enforcement, taking the place of Steve Miller, who was acting commissioner before he was forced out.

W. Todd Grams, the chief financial officer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, will be Werfel’s chief of staff, rejoining the IRS, where he was chief information officer and chief financial officer. Jennifer O’Connor, who was a partner at the WilmerHale law firm in Washington, will be counselor to Werfel and Chief Counsel William Wilkins.

Issa: White House spokesman ‘paid liar’ regarding IRS

Republican Congressman Darrell Issa said in an interview Sunday that the Obama administration directed the IRS to target Tea Party groups and that soon-to-be-released transcripts would prove his accusation.

“Their paid liar, their spokesperson—picture behind,” Issa said on CNN’s State of the Union while sitting in front a photo of White House spokesman Jay Carney. “He’s still making up things about what happens and calling this a local rogue.”

The IRS maintains that two “rogue” administrators at the agency’s Cincinnati office were responsible for singling out conservative Tea Party groups for scrutiny in their applications for tax-exempt non-profit status.

Last week, Lois Lerner, director of Tax-Exempt Organizations at the IRS, was placed on administrative leave. Lerner had invoked her Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in a House Oversight Committee hearing chaired by Issa.

In the weeks since the targeting was made public, it’s come to light that several of the Tea Party groups that were targeted for extra scrutiny have close ties to the Republican Party—a violation of the non-profit status rules that would allow them to remain tax-exempt.

There has been no evidence that the Obama administration knew of the targeting, although senior officials at the Treasury Department were alerted about the IRS audits last summer.

But Issa, chair of the House Oversight Committee, said that the Obama administration directed the entire affair.

“As late as last week the administration’s still trying to say there’s a few rogue agents in Cincinnati when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington,” he said.

Arrogant Bastards Obama & Eric Wants Off The Record Meeting With Reporters, What The Hell

Attorney General Eric Holder’s plans to sit down with media representatives to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media have run into trouble.
The Associated Press issued a statement Wednesday objecting to plans for the meetings to be off the record. “If it is not on the record, AP will not attend and instead will offer our views on how the regulations should be updated in an open letter,” said Erin Madigan White, the AP’s media relations manager.
The New York Times is taking the same position. “It isn’t appropriate for us to attend an off-the-record meeting with the attorney general,” executive editor Jill Abramson said in a statement.

Holder runs into roadblocks on off-the-record meetings on leaks

Updated at 12:38 p.m. ET on Thursday 5/30

Washington (CNN) – Attorney General Eric Holder’s plans to sit down with media representatives to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media have run into trouble.

The Associated Press issued a statement Wednesday objecting to plans for the meetings to be off the record. “If it is not on the record, AP will not attend and instead will offer our views on how the regulations should be updated in an open letter,” said Erin Madigan White, the AP’s media relations manager.

The New York Times is taking the same position. “It isn’t appropriate for us to attend an off-the-record meeting with the attorney general,” executive editor Jill Abramson said in a statement.

Like the New York Times and the Associated Press, CNN will decline the invitation for an off-the-record meeting. A CNN spokesperson says if the meeting with the attorney general is on the record, CNN would plan to participate.

The Huffington Post’s Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim, also said he will not attend unless the meeting is on the record. “A conversation specifically about the freedom of the press should be an open one. We have a responsibility not to betray that,” Grim told CNN.

But Politico posted an item on its website saying editor-in-chief John Harris plans to attend one of the meetings with Holder.

“As editor-in-chief, I routinely have off-the-record conversations with people who have questions or grievances about our coverage or our newsgathering practices,” Harris said in the Politico item. “I feel anyone – whether an official or ordinary reader – should be able to have an unguarded conversation with someone in a position of accountability for a news organization when there is good reason.”

Piers Morgan: Now I see U.S. Government Tyranny (Video)

WND
May 17, 2013

Is British CNN host Piers Morgan finally admitting gun advocates have a point when they say the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from tyrannical government?

Morgan has made headlines for many months as he loudly trumpeted the cause of gun control, even to the detriment of his shows ratings.

Since the Sandy Hook massacre last year – in which Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 students and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. – Morgan has made advocating for gun-control legislation a frequent topic of his program, clashing with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich or rocker and National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent, for example, and calling Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt “an unbelievably stupid man” for disagreeing with him.

Following reports of his vitriolic attacks, a petition was started on the White House “We the People” website demanding Morgan be deported back to England – and it now has more than 109,000 signatures.

As WND reported, despite his avid criticism of guns, Morgan protects his own personal property with signs warning that it is guarded by “Armed Response Security Systems,” according to a recent investigation by self-described “guerrilla journalist” James O’Keefe.

And on March 11, Morgan insisted that, “people need the nanny state occasionally.”

Now – after learning of the Obama administration’s involvement in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups and its secret seizure of Associated Press phone records – the CNN host admitted to guest Penn Jillette that perhaps gun advocates were right about creeping tyranny after all:
