ObamaCare=Public Option=Single Payer=Socialized Medicine

I totally forgot that I said I would repost this video which exposes Obama’s real intent with his ObamaCare plan on ObamaCare infomercial night.

So here it is:

Michelle Malkin sums up the infomercial, thus:

Things the Obamercial taught me…

*More government = less paperwork and less bureaucracy!

*Dear Leader proclaims: “The stars have aligned.” (This from the oaf who wrongly mocked Nancy Reagan for holding seances in the White House. Reminder: It was Hillary who did that.)

*”We can’t afford not to act.” Like we haven’t heard such empty apocalyse-now haranguing a gazillion times over the last year.

What a sham.

UPDATE

markknoller on Twitter says:

Obama faced a number of pointed questions last night on ABC’s health care event, but his answers often didn’t match the questions.

Like on rationing, for instance:

1st questioner asked if Obama would accept limits on the health care treatments given his wife or daughter should they become ill.

Obama called it “a terrific question,” but his answer did not respond to the point of rationing health care to lower overall costs.

Jake Tapper and Karen Travers of ABC News have more.

This Washington Times oped asks Who Are The Uninsured?

By now, you have probably heard a lot about the sad army of the “uninsured” from President Obama and every other elected Democratic Party official in these United States. This is simply political fear-mongering designed to pass a national government-run health-care plan, which has been a union and liberal agenda item since the late 1940s. So the “solution” isn’t new and neither is the “crisis.”

UPDATE:

Some Kansas City area folks took part in a rally outside of local ABC affiliate, KMBC, Wed. afternoon….(Sorry, I couldn’t be coaxed out of the pool). The General Manager, Wayne Godsey was gracious enough allow himself to be interviewed by concerned citizens about the ObamaCare infomercial. Video and commentary at Kansas Meadowlark.

Good News:

The ObamaCare Infomercial was a ratings bomb, too bad for ABC…

NBC and CBS had 3 times as many viewers as did ABC’s Obamacare snoozer.

I guess a television special with President Obama is not very special anymore.

Maybe the public is bored with President Obama. Or maybe the subject of premiums, co-payments and deductibles just bores the socks off all but 4.7 million Americans — but that snoozer last night bombed in the ratings.

A Nine Year Old Girl Is Shot By Basij

ABC News is reporting that even a 9 year old girl was targeted by government militia:

“The most disturbing are reports of a nine-year-old girl being shot @ Baharestan and the basij [militia] won’t let people near her to help.”

Animals.

The website of Iran’s main opposition candidate, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, gives some weight to the other accounts.

“Many people have been beaten and injured at the protests across Tehran today,” the website says.

“At Baharestan the police were waiting inside local mosques for the protesters to arrive. At this point many would consider the actions of the basij and police as acts of terror.

“This is amazing that even in the year 2009 such primitive policing still exists.”

More coverage of this at MSNBC:

On Wednesday, demonstrators gathered at Baharestan Square, near the Iranian Parliament, but the gathering was met with gunshots, according to Saeed Valadbaygee, writing June 24 from inside Iran on his Revolutionary Road blog:

“In Baharestan Sq. A girl is shot and the police is not allowing to let them help”

“The girl who was shot was taken to a private clinic, not known yet of her well being … alive or not?

See Liveleak for result if your heart can stand it.

Here’s an introduction:

Neda’s Family Expelled From Their Home

Another outrage. I can’t even imagine what this poor family is going through.

Via The UK Guardian:

The Iranian authorities have ordered the family of Neda Agha Soltan out of their Tehran home after shocking images of her death were circulated around the world.

Neighbours said that her family no longer lives in the four-floor apartment building on Meshkini Street, in eastern Tehran, having been forced to move since she was killed. The police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her family know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques, the neighbours said.

“We just know that they [the family] were forced to leave their flat,” a neighbour said. The Guardian was unable to contact the family directly to confirm if they had been forced to leave.

The government is also accusing protesters of killing Soltan, describing her as a martyr of the Basij militia. Javan, a pro-government newspaper, has gone so far as to blame the recently expelled BBC correspondent, Jon Leyne, of hiring “thugs” to shoot her so he could make a documentary film.

Obama wants to negotiate with this insane government?

Video: Hysterical Iranian Woman Describes Horrors of Iran Massacre On CNN

A friend of blogger, Revolutionary Rd via his Facebook page describes the massacre in Iran, today…pleads for help:

” You should stop this!…you should stop this!..You should help the people of Iran who demand freedom!”

Hey, Obama is “reconsidering” the invitation to the 4th of July hot dog Party.

Shameful.

Via Twitter, Major Garrett reports:

Gibbs: hot dog diplomacy ended. All 4th of July invites to Iranians rescinded.

About damn time.

UPDATE:

I just found a longer version of this compelling video…listen as this poor young woman describes events today and in recent days as devastating“This is horrific, This is genocide This is a massacre!…This is Hitler!” …pleading again for us to act.  “It’s time to act!”

It’s time for the international community to intervene/meddle/do something!

UPDATE II:

This isn’t much…but it’s something…

WH Now Reconsidering 4th of July Invitations To Iran (UPDATED)

So friggin’ behind the curve, it’s mind-boggling.

Here are some recent tweets coming out of Iran:

  1. we must go – dont know when we can get internet – they take 1 of us, they will torture and get names – now we must move fast – #Iranelectionabout 2 hours ago from web

  2. Everybody is under arrest & cant move – Mousavi – Karroubi even rumour Khatami is in house guard – #Iranelection –about 2 hours ago from web

  3. they pull away the dead into trucks – like factory – no human can do this – we beg Allah for save us – #Iranelectionabout 2 hours ago from web

  4. Lalezar Sq is same as Baharestan – unbelevable – ppls murdered everywhere – #Iranelectionabout 2 hours ago from web

  5. they catch ppl with mobile – so many killed today – so many injured – Allah Akbar – they take one of us – #Iranelectionabout 2 hours ago from web

  6. in Baharestan we saw militia with axe choping ppl like meat – blood everywhere – like butcher – Allah Akbar – #Iranelection RT RT RTabout 2 hours ago from web

  7. reports of street fighting in Vanak Sq, Tajrish sq, Azadi Sq – now – #Iranelection – Sea of Green – Allah Akbarabout 2 hours ago from web

The crackdown has accelerated to the point that it has been compared to Tiananmen Square.

He’s only “reconsidering” retracting the invitation to party with these inhuman thugs?

UPDATE:

Finally the Iranian diplomats are dis-invited…not that they were even planning on coming, anyway.

Jennifer Rubin makes a good point about how exhausting it must be for Obama’s leftist apologists to keep up with his policy swivels;

The president has rescinded his invitation for hot dogs with Iranian diplomats after days of criticism from the blogosphere, members of Congress, and conservatives. Once again the Left has been marched up the hill to defend the inexcusable (How rude to disinvite someone with whom we may have to “engage”! How petty!) only to abandon the position when common sense or political necessity intervene.

This is a pattern of course — on the president’s language on Iran, on release of detainee abuse photos, on Chas Freeman, and sort of on a Truth Commission. One would think the Right has more influence with this administration than do those who launched his campaign and put him in the White House.

Allahpundit helpfully offers the new talking point:

Yesterday’s left-wing conventional wisdom: We can’t jeopardize diplomacy by taking a meaningless moral stand! Today’s left-wing conventional wisdom: Obama has taken a bold moral stand against regime abuses!

UPDATE II:

As today’s crackdown in Iran is compared to Tiananmen Square, Vel Nirtist at American Thinker is reminded of Obama’s nominee to head theNational Intelligence Council, Chaz Freeman…

Yeah….does Chaz Freeman and Tiananmen Square ring a bell? It should….and the association could go a long way toward explaining why Obama has been as soft on the Mullahs as he has…

Here’s Freeman’s own opinion on the Tiananmen Square massacre…if you remember, this was one of the reasons conservatives so opposed his nomination…

I do not believe it is acceptable for any country to allow the heart of its national capital to be occupied by dissidents intent on disrupting the normal functions of government, however appealing to foreigners their propaganda may be. Such folk, whether they represent a veterans’ “Bonus Army” or a “student uprising” on behalf of “the goddess of democracy” should expect to be displaced with despatch (sic) from the ground they occupy.”

Good lord. Who does he (Obama’s 1st choice for the NIC) remind you of, there? Perhaps, the “Supreme Leader” cracking down violently on dissidents…Students rising up on behalf of the ‘Goddess of Democracy’ in Iran?

Spooky.
