Harry Reid Tied to Medicare Fraudster Saloman Melgen

 

reid-c-c1-565x429

 

Saloman Melgen is the South Florida doctor who it was determined overbilled Medicare by $9 million in 2007-2008, and who also recently lent his private plane to Senator Menendez of New Jersey for some “vacation time” in the Dominican Republic.

The Washington Free Beacon today reveals that $700,000 found its way from Melgen to a PAC Senator Reid is associated with. I mean it would just look stupid if old Harry Reid took a stroll down to the Medicare building and just picked up a check. There always has to be a middleman, even if that middleman is a known fraudster. Can’t look too obvious.

Blount County Chainsaw Massacre

Blount County Chainsaw Massacre

 

Yes, I know this is what you are thinking, and you are almost correct.
 

Chainsaw_Ganado

No body parts found along HWY 321 or HWY 411, but an attack on free speech, personal property and free election campaigning by person(s) unknown, at least for now.

It appears that campaign signs posted by Blount County Commission candidate for the 7th District in Friendsville, Tona Monroe, displeased, to say it politely, someone enough to apparently take a chainsaw to the signs to remove the message.
 

4-6-2014 8-02-58 PM 4-6-2014 8-04-14 PM

 

County Commission candidate Monroe stated:

“I painted some signs, just simple hand-painted, nothing fancy, that said ‘Greene wheel tax you,’ and painted a tire on there just to remind the voters of my district that Greene supported the wheel tax,” Monroe said.

Greene was one of 13 commissioners who voted to hold a special election in June 2013 on whether to levy a $35 wheel tax on automobiles to help plug a shortfall in the county schools’ budget. It failed 8,885 to 4,087.

“It went over 3-1 against in the 7th District,” Monroe said. “In Friendsville in particular — 82 percent of voters voted against it. I thought that would be a very good campaign issue to focus on because he seems to be very much out of touch with what the citizens of the 7th District want, which is a strong fiscal conservative. He’s not been that. I will be a strong fiscal conservative who will focus on cutting waste rather than their family budgets.”

The Wheel Tax referendum which Monroe references has been shot down 3 times now, the latest vote last year which the Commission wasted $80,000 for the referendum vote.  Some people may not want this waste of Blount County taxpayer money reminded to the voters.

The Blount County Tax Revolt issued a press release and has offered a $500 reward for information leading to the person who is responsible. Also, they have volunteered to donate 2 more signs for each that have been vandalized.

These States Have More Registered Voters Than Eligible Adults

 

One time only please.

One time only please.

 

Now I wonder why that would be allowed to happen?

 

I know that it’s a common talking point among some to argue that voter fraud is not pervasive. Anyone who has lived in New Orleans, West Virginia, Chicago, New Jersey, Baltimore, or voted in the GOP primary in Maine in 2012, can tell you otherwise. It’s a problem.

Of course it’s only a problem for those of us who are not part of the political class which benefits from such fraud.

(From The Blaze.com)
 
“Dirty voter rolls mean dirty elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said during Monday’s press conference. “Many states are shirking their legal responsibilities to maintain clean voter rolls. This undermines confidence in our election system and outrageously, the Obama Justice Department simply refuses to enforce the federal law that requires states to take responsible steps to clean voter rolls. Judicial Watch is now doing the job of the U.S. Justice Department.”

Computer Security Expert Claims he Hacked the ObamaCare Website in 4 Minutes

Computer Security Expert Claims he Hacked the ObamaCare Website in 4 Minutes

 

No-ObamacareThe hits just keep on coming for ObamaCare. It was less than two weeks ago that I highlighted the potential premium rate death spiral that ObamaCare faces due to the fact that only old and sick people are signing up for the program. Now it seems there are further security related concerns plaguing the site, as cyber-security expert David Kennedy recently claimed that “gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes.”

It’s actually hard to be this incompetent if you tried. More from the Washington Times:

The man who appeared before Congress last week to explain the security pitfalls of HealthCare.gov took to Fox News on Sunday to explain just how easy it was to penetrate the website.

Hacking expert David Kennedy told Fox’s Chris Wallace that gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes and required nothing more than a standard browser, the Daily Caller reported.

“And 70,000 was just one of the numbers that I was able to go up to and I stopped after that,” he said. “You know, I’m sure it’s hundreds of thousands, if not more, and it was done within about a 4 minute timeframe. So, it’s just wide open.”

“You can literally just open up your browser, go to this, and extract all this information without actually having to hack the website itself,” he said.

Mr. Kennedy testified before Congress Thursday that HealthCare.gov was “100 percent” insecure, Washington Free Beacon reported.

Nations Largest Cocaine Smuggler Revealed: The DEA

For decades, it has been rumored the United States government was secretly sponsoring the smuggling of cocaine into the country. Federal officials have long denied such speculation, pointing out the billions of dollars spent intercepting drugs. Newly released documents, and testimony from Justice Department and DEA officials now show the stories of government running cocaine are true.

An investigation conducted in Mexico found the American government allowed that country’s largest drug cartel, Sinaloa, to operate without fear of persecution. That groups is estimated to be responsible for 80 percent of the cocaine coming into the country through Chicago. In exchange, the leaders of Sinaloa provided the DEA information on rival gangs.

The drug cartel working with the federal government is run by . He is considered to be the world’s most powerful drug trafficker. In addition to Chicago, his group also maintains cocaine operations in several major cities around the country.

Written statements were provided to a U.S. District Court in Chicago, confirming the alliance between the DEA and Mexico’s largest cocaine cartel. The written testimony, combined with other evidence, shows DEA officials met with leaders of the Sinaloa cartel more than 50 times between 2000 and 2012. This would mean DEA-authorized drug smuggling goes back to at least the beginning of the George W. Bush administration, and continued for year under Barack Obama.

One of the groups leaders, Vincente Zambada-Niebla, claims the American government also sent military-grade weapons to Sinoloa. According to the latest revelations, it was these weapons which were part of the Fast-and-Furious scandal. Automatic firearms which disappeared during that operation, led by Eric Holder, were used to kill U.S. Border agents.

This latest evidence and testimony points toward a massive scandal, involving both Republican and Democratic administrations. At the very least, this provides the best evidence so far that the Federal government was sponsoring the smuggling of billions of dollars of cocaine into the United States. Worse still, weapons purchased for the U.S. military may have been sent to the cartel, and used to kill American agents.

Those actions transcend any partisan politics.

I liked GE so much better when all I thought they made was light bulbs.

 

(From Rolling Stone)
 
The GE Muni-riggers will now join such luminaries as the Gen Re defendants (executives from an insurance company who were convicted in 2008 of helping AIG conduct a fraudulent accounting transaction) and the KPMG defendants (executives of the U.S. arm of the Dutch accounting giant who were convicted in the 2000s of selling illegal tax shelters) in the ranks of Wall Street line-crossers who improbably made it all the way to guilty verdicts in criminal cases, only to be freed on technicalities later on.
 
As one antitrust lawyer I know put it: “Apparently, the government can’t seem to get criminal trials involving financial executives (as opposed to, well, drug dealers) right. Go figure.”

Baby taken from mother by UK social services in ‘forced caesarean’

 

 

Social services in the county of Essex reportedly obtained permission from a High Court to forcibly remove an unborn child from its mother’s womb by caesarean section. The Court Order was granted on the basis the woman had suffered a mental breakdown.

The Sunday Telegraph reported the story, citing the woman’s lawyers, who is now fighting for custody of her child. The woman, who is reportedly an Italian national, was in the UK on a business trip last year when she suffered a panic attack. She called the police who subsequently took her to a psychiatric facility where she was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Members of her family said the panic attack was caused by her failure to take medication for bipolar disorder, which she had been diagnosed with in Italy.

The legal documents handed to the Sunday Telegraph indicate that after 5 weeks in the ward, the woman was sedated and subjected to a caesarean section procedure to remove the unborn child from her womb. The Essex social services had received an order from a High Court giving them the go ahead to carry out the operation on the grounds that the woman was not mentally fit.

“I have never heard of anything like this in all my 40 years in the job,” Brendan Fleming, the woman’s British lawyer, told The Sunday Telegraph.

The woman’s lawyers say that she was never informed of the procedure.

The aggrieved returned to the UK in February of this year to claim custody of her child at a Crown Court. Her lawyers said that although the judge formed a favorable opinion of her, he ruled that the child should be put up for adoption because there was a danger that she could regress.

Following the ruling the case has snowballed and is now at the center of an international dispute. The woman has also filed a case with a High Court in Rome asking why an Italian citizen had been subjected to UK care proceedings. Her lawyers are currently trying to discern why no next of kin in Italy were informed when she was sectioned.

“If there were concerns about the care of this child by an Italian mother, then the better plan would have been for the authorities here to have notified social services in Italy and for the child to have been taken back there,” wrote Christopher Booker in his column in The Sunday Telegraph.

Lawyers also voiced some concern that the child was put up for adoption when there had been an offer from a family friend in the US to take care of her.

A List Of 23 Famous Obama Quotes That Turned Out To Be Broken Promises Or Cold-Hearted Lies

 

Barack-Obama-takes-one-last-look-in-the-mirror-before-going-out-to-take-the-oath-of-office-450x321

 

How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility?  What you are about to see is absolutely astounding.  It is a long list of important promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president.  If he had only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to overlook that.  After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars.  Unfortunately, many of the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in nature.  For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that “you will be able to keep your health care plan” under Obamacare.  But now we are learning that he knew that this was a lie all along.  Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew that this was a lie all along too.  In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, said the following when she was asked about Obama’s promise to the American people recently: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.”  You can see video of her making this statement right here.  The truth is that they all knew that millions upon millions of Americans would lose their current health care policies under Obamacare.  They deliberately lied just so that they could get the law passed.

And of course this is far from the only major lie that Obama has told in recent years.  The following is a list of 23 famous Obama quotes that turned out to be broken promises or cold-hearted lies…

#1 “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

#2 “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

#3 “We agree on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums…”

#4 “I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president
 of the United States of America.”

#5 “We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state level, jobs are going to be created.”

#6 “And we will pursue the housing plan I’m outlining today. And through this plan, we will help between 7 and 9 million families restructure or refinance their mortgages so they can afford—avoid foreclosure.”

#7 “I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

#8 “We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime.”

#9 “For people with insurance, the only impact of the health-care law is that their insurance is stronger, better, and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”

#10 “We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, the location of so many of the worst constitutional abuses in recent years.”

#11 “Allow Americans to buy their medicines from other developed countries if the drugs are safe and prices are lower outside the U.S.”

#12 “We will revisit the Patriot Act and overturn unconstitutional executive decisions issued during the past eight years.”

#13 “Will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid.”

#14 “We reject sweeping claims of ‘inherent’ presidential power.”

#15 “Will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors — saving them an average of $1,400 a year– and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all.”

#16 “We support constitutional protections and judicial oversight on any surveillance program involving Americans.”

#17 “If we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do.  I will get our troops home, we will end this war.  You can take that to the bank.”

#18 “Will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.”

#19 “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

#20 “We have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division and conflict and cynicism…. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this election, we can come together and say, ‘Not this time….’”

#21 “We’ve got to spend some money now to pull us out of this recession. But as soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.”

#22 “[T]oday I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.”

#23 “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States.”

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Obamacare Navigators Counsel Applicants to “Lie”

There is a lot to be said for consistency, but sadly what is consistent is the lies and dishonesty as this video brings to light regarding the Obamacare navigators.  The Project Veritas video below is from the same people that exposed the scandal with ACORN.  Through the various Obamacare navigators and tax exempt entities involved, it appears cronyism, dishonesty and lies must come from higher up the organizational or administrative food chain.  The strong connection to the DNC does not go without notice, or surprise.
