    Rather than provide universal coverage as promised, obamacare actually denies it to some who need it most

    Boy with cancer loses coverage after Obamacare launch

    He was born with a rare form of cancer and lost his health insurance just after Obamacare went into effect.

    Americans were told the health-care law was designed to help children just like Hunter, born with a deadly pre-existing condition and little means to pay for expensive treatments.

    The Affordable Care Act was not supposed to take away the insurance these most-vulnerable children already had and leave them utterly defenseless against a life-threatening disease.

    Answers are hard to come by, but it looks like that’s what the president’s signature achievement has done in the small town of Gainesville, Texas.

    In a sense obamacare is a deliberate genocide – eliminate those who are not seen as useful, viable members of the ‘master race’, perhaps?

    And another thing we were warned about – how it would exacerbate the shortage of medical professionals.

    Dr. Ted Mazer is one of the few ear, nose and throat specialists in this region who treat low-income people on Medicaid, so many of his patients travel long distances to see him. But now, as California’s Medicaid program is preparing for a major expansion under President Obama’s health care law, Dr. Mazer says he cannot accept additional patients under the government insurance program for a simple reason: It does not pay enough. It’s a bad situation that is likely to be made worse,” he said. His view is shared by many doctors around the country. Medicaid for years has struggled with a shortage of doctors willing to accept its low reimbursement rates and red tape, forcing many patients to wait for care, particularly from specialists like Dr. Mazer

    Moonbats LOVE their false tails

    The media is still feasting on yet another lie about GW Bush. Remember how much they enjoyed the lie that he was the President with the lowest IQ?

    Nine years later they’re still loving the story about the fake turkey – the problem is it’s the story that was fake – the turkey was real.

    Lack of civility is not the issue in Washington DC – it’s the outbreak of lawlessness that is the issue.

    For all the gnashing of teeth over the lack of comity and civility in Washington, the real problem is not etiquette but the breakdown of political norms, legislative and constitutional.

    Obama politicizing Thanksgiving.

    Is nothing sacred?

    He’s enslaved more Americans than any President before him – that much is a fact.

    As Breitbart News has reported, food stamp enrollments “have remained over 47 million for an unprecedented 13 consecutive months.”

    So Kanye West is a bigot – who knew?

    And racist too – as moonbats brand anyone who speaks ill of Obama as such, and he’s talkin’ pretty bad about ol’ Barry Sotero here!

    You know why Barack Obama is having problems executing his agenda?

    Rapper Kanye West told 105.1 FM radio in New York City earlier this week that it’s because “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people”

    Apparently it’s all the Jews fault?

    Frankly, I think Obama’s failures have more to do with the fact that he never was in the business world and never ran anything, never earned anything.

    That said, I guess West wasn’t aware that in the 2012 campaign, Obama’s connections helped him raise and spend more money than Mitt Romney.

    Kanye complains about Bush’s alleged “oil money” backing and claims Obama (and blacks) have no contact with anything like that.

    Obama’s top backers:

    James Simons: $4.1 million

    The hedge fund ‘quant king’ is the biggest billionaire donor to the left, giving $2 million to Obama-backing super PAC Priorities USA Action as well as supporting left-leaning Majority PAC and House Majority PAC.

    – Irwin Jacobs : $2.1 million

    The retired head of chip manufacturer Qualcomm also cut a $2 million check to Priorities USA Action, the super PAC backing Obama’s reelection.

    – Jon Stryker: $2 million

    Medical device heir, like Jacobs and Simons, pitched in $2 million to Priorities USA Action. He’s also a longtime donor to LGBT causes.

    – Anne Cox Chambers: $1.6 million

    The 92-year-old Cox Enterprises TV billionaire backed Obama supporters Priorities USA Action.

    – George Soros: $1.275 million

    The legendary investor hasn’t supported Obama directly, but he’s contributed to left-leaning groups Majority PAC, House Majority PAC, and American Bridge 21st Century.

    – Haim Saban: $1 million

    The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers mogul has divided his donation between C Priorities USA Action and left-leaning Majority PAC and House Majority PAC.

    The rot is a cancer that may soon be incurable.

    Tucson, a longtime foe of Arizona’s ‘papers, please’ law, is modifying how it enforces SB 1070 to join a national trend that suggests the pendulum is swinging on illegal immigration.

    Or so the moonbat media wishes we would believe.

    And they are the ones that made up the phrase ‘papers please’ – that is not what the law is about.

    QUOTABLE QUOTES

    “Because only in America do people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have…”

    Moonbats do the darndest things

    Jimmy Carter’s grandson is running on – GET THIS – his grandfather’s record.

    That’s right – this kid is saying, “Remember the WORST PRESIDENT EVER?” Well, not quite, not any more. He WAS the worst president ever, until 2008. So in that light it makes sense that he’s telling people, “Remember the good years? The gas lines? The last time we failed to stand up to the mad mullahs in Iran?”

    Yeah, perhaps, with Obama and the Democrats well along in their plan to fundamentally destroy America, a little nostalgia for the good old Jimmy Carter days DOES make some sense after all.

    What’s the worst thing that could happen?

    Obama running for a third term. He’s defied the Constitution in many ways already. What’s to stop him from doing this?

    The worst thing, though, would be the idiots who would vote for him if he did. They’re out there.

    It’s just astonishing that the U.S.A. has such a worthless imbecile as POTUS.

  11. Bob Roberts says:

    Where is Al Gore when you need him?

    If he read this you know the first thing he’d do is get on the phone to try and start scaring up some venues that will let him whine and moan about how close the Earth is to becoming just like Venus.

    Nearly 1000 Record Low Temperatures Set As Another Round of Arctic Air Forecast To Deep Freeze The U.S.

    Almost 1000 record low max temps vs 17 record high temps
    Records in the last 7 days:
    205 snowfall records.
    969 Low Max. 203 Low temps.
    17 High Temp.

    If I read this right, the most interesting thing is the one about 969 low max temperatures – that means that even though it’s only November we’re setting almost 1000 “lowest ever” temperature records, just as the headline says. That’s significant.

    And that’s not all:

    Global Sea Ice Area Highest In 25 Years, 6th Highest On Record

    It has been 25 years since Hansen predicted the demise of polar sea ice. Gaia has celebrated the date by producing the most polar sea ice in the last 25 years.

    Of course, it’s dysfunctional, decaying, non-standard, socially unacceptable ice that hasn’t been peer-reviewed. So it doesn’t count, or something, or is only more proof human-caused (anthropogenic) global warming causes extremes.

    And now, the weather (& climate):

    Greenland’s shrunken ice sheet is nothing new, scientists say — it was even smaller more than 3,000 years ago, as small as any time in recent history.

    “What’s really interesting about this is that on land, the atmosphere was warmest between 9,000 and 5,000 years ago, maybe as late as 4,000 years ago,” Briner said. “The oceans, on the other hand, were warmest between [5,000 and 3,000] years ago,” when the ice sheet was at its smallest, he said.

    Those Stubborn Facts: Climate Reality Refutes IPCC’s Sea Level Predictions, Studies Show

    An 11″ rise by century-end is definitely not a catastrophe and certainly an outcome that humans can adapt to/cope with. And clearly, it represents a 2100AD level substantially below the IPCC’s predicted 24″ rise.

    The IPCC’s prediction not only does not comport with climate reality, other expert research indicates that sea level rise by 2100AD will amount to only a 4-6″ increase. Two recent studies, one by NOAA and another by China’s experts, represent ‘those stubborn facts’ that are continually undermining the IPCC prediction fantasies.

    NY Times climate news shrinks 30% — another signpost in the decline of The Great Global Warming Scam

    The cause is declining in popularity, but we’re still at the stage where the major players are pretending to go along — “it’s only structural” — and saying how much they are concerned even as their actions suggest the opposite. Look for the next shift where people don’t bother pretending.

    One day people will rush to declare that they never really believed it.

    GISS Data Confirm Winters Definitely Getting Colder Over Northern Hemisphere Continents Since 1995! – See more at: http://notrickszone.com/2013/11/24/giss-data-confirm-winters-definitely-getting-colder-over-northern-hemisphere-continents-since-1995/

    There is much denial disbelief going around about our ever changing world. Are the winters getting colder? Are the summers getting hotter? Are the ice-caps melting? What’s going on?

    Fortunately there are systems keeping track. And there are simple ways of plotting the data. One plot, available from Goddard Institute of Space Science (GISS), is a temperature trend plot by month of the year.

    Note that nearly all the continental areas in the northern hemisphere where people actually live, with the exception of India, are experiencing colder winters. The chart also shows Europe’s Alps region is getting significantly colder in the winter time, too, just as German meteorologist Dominik Jung found when evaluating data from the Austrian Weather Service, read: Austrian meteorologists stupefied.

    Major US Hurricane Drought Continues

    The five-year period ending 2013 has seen 2 hurricane landfalls. That is a record low since 1900. Two other five-year periods have seen 3 landfalls (years ending in 1984 and 1994). Prior to 1970 the fewest landfalls over a five-year period was 6. From 1940 to 1957, every 5-year period had more than 10 hurricane landfalls (1904-1920 was almost as active). If you are interested in a global perspective, go to the link for a graph of the ACE (accumulated cyclone energy), a measure of the true state of tropical storm trends worldwide. If you just want the summary, we’re at a record low ACE and trending downward.

    Another alarmist promise: Extreme weather events will increase dramatically. WRONG! Just the opposite.

    They’re NOT increasing. If anything they could be decreasing a bit.

    By comparing current Arctic sea ice to a recent maximum (1978) alarmists try to make it look like the Arctic is melting – though it does every year, then it re-freezes!

    What NSIDC is hiding is that there were satellite measurements much earlier than 1978, which showed that 1978 was the peak ice extent. The graph below is from the 1995 IPCC report. I added the red circle to show NSIDC’s misleading start date. (See at link, above.)

    Note that 1974 had about the same anomaly as the current value (top graph) indicating that there has been no long term change in Arctic sea ice extent through the entire satellite record.

    Most people who made it past high school would understand that you can’t claim a linear trend based on a plot of one leg of a cyclical function.
