O’Keefe Undercover Sting: ObamaCare Navigators Caught on Tape Telling People To Lie On Applications – Defraud The Government!

Well, this should be the nail in the coffin, right here.

And it isn’t even surprising given that ObamaCare Navigators aren’t properly screened, or trained and even convicted felons can get the job. But who could have predicted that James O’Keefe would be able to get them encouraging fraud on camera, this soon. Holy cow.

Here’s Project Veritas, once again doing God’s work….(and the MSM’s):

The Obama Administration’s campaign to sign everyone up for government healthcare inspired Project Veritas to go straight to the source and investigate what’s really going on.

What we found is shocking: navigators, in positions of public trust, told our undercover journalists to lie and defraud the government. Over and over again.

Yes, as if the roll-out of Obamacare hasn’t been disastrous enough, Project Veritas has caught Obamacare navigators counseling citizens to lie about their income and deceive the IRS, commit fraud on applications by not reporting full health history, and worse.

Despite reassurances that “fraud could not be committed,” clearly, that is not the case.

Obamacare Navigators counseled applicants by saying:

“You lie because your premiums will be higher.”

“Never report it … I always lie on my applications.”

“It didn’t happen.”

It gets worse! O’Keefe found that Enroll America  appears to be sharing data and working with Battleground Texas – the Democrat PAC dedicated to turning Texas blue…One of the navigators actually thinks he’s working for the DNC…

Part one of a series…

What the hell is going on in Texas? Some kind of vote mining operation? Shut it down. Shut the whole damn thing down.

O’Reilly kicked off “The Factor” Monday night with the O’Keefe video  showing Obamacare navigators committing fraud.


Da TechGuy: EXCLUSIVE: DaTechGuy Interviews Project Veritas Executive Director Daniel Francisco on Obamacare Fraud Videos

Andrew McCarthy, NRO: Obama’s Massive Fraud:

If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period.” How serious was this lie, repeated by Barack Obama with such beguiling regularity? Well, how would the Justice Department be dealing with it if it had been uttered by, say, the president of an insurance company rather than the president of the United States?

Fraud is a serious federal felony, usually punishable by up to 20 years’ imprisonment — with every repetition of a fraudulent communication chargeable as a separate crime. In computing sentences, federal sentencing guidelines factor in such considerations as the dollar value of the fraud, the number of victims, and the degree to which the offender’s treachery breaches any special fiduciary duties he owes. Cases of multi-million-dollar corporate frauds — to say nothing of multi-billion-dollar, Bernie Madoff–level scams that nevertheless pale beside Obamacare’s dimensions — often result in terms amounting to decades in the slammer.


National Urban League is among several other left-wing, Obama Friendly organizations riding the Obamacare navigator gravy train:  Planned Parenthood, and Virginia Poverty Law Center Inc. and the United Labor Unions Council Local 100 are also helping Obama inflict “his signature achievement” on America.

ACORN Offshoot Tapped To Help With Multi-State ObamaCare ‘Navigator’ Drive:

We now hear that Wade Rathke, the former activist for the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), who founded  ACORN, and is an Executive Board member of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is now  providing navigators for ObamaCare. Rathke describes himself as someone who is dedicated to “winning social justice, workers’ rights, and a democracy where ‘the people shall rule’” – (i.e. he’s a Socialist.)  ACORN was shut down in 2009 after citizen journalists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles shined a much needed spotlight on their corrupt identity fraud and voter fraud operation. Prior to that,  our current POTUS had an intimate and longstanding association with the group.

It shouldn’t be a shock that the shady ACORN spin-off Rathke now leads, has been tapped to help people enroll in Obamacare exchanges but it should enrage American taxpayers  that members of the group are collecting taxpayer money for their work despite Congress’ efforts to cut ACORN and its affiliates off from government funding.

Fox News Reports:

The United Labor Unions Council Local 100, a New Orleans-based nonprofit, announced last month it would take part in a multi-state “navigator” drive to help people enroll in President Obama’s health care plan. The labor council was established by ACORN founder Wade Rathke after his larger group was broken up amid scandal in 2009 and banned from receiving taxpayer funds.

But the group went bankrupt after a journalist’s sting operation caught employees allegedly telling clients how to cheat on taxes, causing donations to dry up and lawmakers to cut off public funding.

Epstein said the ban on funding to ACORN-related groups was mysteriously dropped from the key Health and Human Services appropriations bill in the most recent continuing resolution, which Congress uses to fund the government absent formal budgets. He said there appears to be little oversight as to who gets Navigator grants.

The United Labor Unions (ULU) Local 100 is helping to navigate people into the marketplaces in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas under the Affordable Care Act. Republicans in Congress need to step up and do something about this.

Obama: al Qaeda “On The Path To Defeat” Even Though They Have “Grown More Active Recently”

In his half-hearted Veterans Day address, Obama resurrected one of his favorite lines from the 2012 election, adding the caveat – “Core” al Qaeda – whatever that means: “Core al Qaeda is on the path to defeat,” he intoned.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Oddly enough, Obama admitted just a short while ago that *whoops!* “unfortunately al-Qaida has still been active and has grown more active recently.”   Maybe he “misspoke”, again, huh? Because God knows – this president would never lie to the American people?

A Veteran who blogs at RivrDog gave Obama’s Veterans Day speech a big thumbs down:

I just listened to Obama’s speech, given at Arlington National Cemetery. In the speech, he said ALL the right things to the assembled Veterans. Trouble is, his words don’t match his deeds, AGAIN (see Healthcare Reform Act).

The sad facts for veterans have not changed:

  • VA medical care is a shambles, a pretense of comprehensive modern medicine;
  • Veterans are treated, almost universally, as if they are all dangerous crazies, almost forced to “admit” PTSD, leading to their Second Amendment rights being removed without benefit of due process;
  • The current GI Bill is like a penny in a beggar’s cup compared to the post-WW2 benefits;
  • Above all, Obama LEADS the military of the USA, he leads it in war, and he has forgotten how to win a war, or even why winning is necessary.

As a Veteran, I am terribly disappointed in my Commander-in-Chief.

In other words – when it comes to Obama. Don’t listen to what he says. Watch what he does.

Speaking for myself, it’s hard to be disappointed in someone you had no confidence in to begin with.


The Blaze: Did You Catch the Ironic Part in Obama’s Veterans Day Speech?

President Barack Obama on Monday heralded one of the oldest living veterans in America, even talking about his trip to the nation’s capital this year as part of the Honor Flight program.

That would be the same Honor Flight program that brought veterans to Washington, D.C., last month who entered the World War II Memorial in defiance of the government shutdown.

Barricades were placed around the World War II Memorial and other monuments on the National Mall to keep visitors out during the shutdown. Some veterans, aided by members of Congress, ignored the barricades and went to visit the memorial anyway.

Veterans Day 2013: Honoring America’s Heroes

This Veterans Day we honor the courage and dedication of all who have served our nation and defended our freedom.

The NRSC released a video message from some of our veterans in Congress:

Here is a heart-felt video message via the George W. Bush Presidential Center from former Commander in Chief G.W. Bush:

Senator Ted Cruz released the following message in honor of our nation’s veterans:

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the fighting between the Allies and Germany ceased. Today, we commemorate that moment by thanking our veterans who have continued the quest to preserve our peace and freedom.

We should all be proud of our country’s long tradition of service. General John J. Pershing eloquently expressed his thanks in a letter to the troops who helped win the “war to end all wars,” that is just as relevant now as it was then.

Pershing wrote, “By willing sacrifice of personal rights; by cheerful endurance of hardship and privation; by vigor, strength and indomitable will, made effective by thorough organization and cordial co-operation, you inspired the war-worn Allies with new life and turned the tide of threatened defeat into overwhelming victory.”

We are so fortunate that throughout history, millions of Americans have come forward to fight tyrants, fascists, communists, and terrorists to keep us free.

Still, we live in a violent world, where the freedoms we enjoy remain exceptional to millions of less fortunate forced to abide by brutal dictators, oppressive regimes, and cultures of intolerance.

The persistent threats of terrorism at home and abroad are reminders of how precious it is to be an American and how fiercely our rights must be protected.

We are blessed to live in a society where men and women continue to fight for our flag. Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, more than 3 million Americans have volunteered to defend their country, knowing full well the risks they may face. More than 50,000 are serving in Afghanistan right now.

They, like millions of veterans before them, are willingly putting themselves in danger to keep us safe.

Thank you.

President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” He was right.

Please join me on this Veterans Day in saying a prayer of thanks for our veterans. And, please find a veteran. Grab their hand. Look them in the eye and tell them, “Thank you for your service.”

We will never be able to express enough thanks for the troops, but they must always know they are treasured.

May God bless the veterans, may God bless all those who continue to protect our country, and may God bless the United States of America.

A friendly reminder:

Video: Trey Gowdy Rips MSM For Media Malpractice On Benghazi

ObamaCrash has been sucking the oxygen out of all other news stories for over a month now, so when Republicans held a press conference on Benghazi two weeks ago, I totally missed it.

On October 30,  Senator Lindsey Graham reiterated his threat to hold up all future Senate confirmations unless the Regime is more forthcoming with the information Republicans are seeking.

And Trey Gowdy took the opportunity to shame the MSM for being basically AWOL on the story. He asked if they could answer a series of pertinent questions about the attack – knowing, of course –  that the answer would be no, because the media as a whole allowed the Regime to lie and stonewall on Benghazi so Obama could be reelected. Some great investigative journalism was called for, and they totally dropped the ball. Instead, they dutifully reported the lies as truth – and attacked Romney for questioning it. 

Few in the media are interested in genuine journalism, anymore. They seem to be satisfied with their positions as White House stenographers.

He concluded by saying, “I am not surprised that POTUS called this a phony scandal. I’m not surprised that Sec. Clinton asked ‘what difference does it make?’ And I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said it happened a long time ago. I’m just surprised that people bought it.”

Thanks to Allen West, who posted this video on his website:

West predicts that “one day he will be our US Attorney General.”

Here is the entire presser via US Sen Lindsey Graham:

U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire) and John McCain (R-Arizona), along with Congressmen Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), held a press conference today to address the latest issues surrounding the Benghazi investigation and demand that the Benghazi survivors be made available to testify before Congress.
