King Obama’s Universe Of Lies

king obama

Four years ago on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh  talked about the left’s “universe of lies.”

There are two worlds. We live in two universes. One universe is a lie. One universe is an entire lie. Everything run, dominated, and controlled by the left here and around the world is a lie. The other universe is where we are, and that’s where reality reigns supreme and we deal with it.

He called the president and first lady, the king and queen of the universe of lies.

 I was just watching an unbelievable sight. President and Mrs. Obama on the balcony of their hotel room in Oslo, it’s nighttime over there, and there is a torchlight parade reception, and the street is just filled, it’s teeming with people, with their candles and torches, with the Obamas standing high above and looking down upon them, President Obama in his tuxedo, and I kid you not, Michelle (My Belle) looked like she was dressed in a way to make people think she was royalty, a queen. Make no mistake about it, it was on purpose. But the reason I’m glad it happened, cause, you know, Snerdley is saying, “Gosh, they just have to be eating this up, they just have to love this, they think of themselves as royalty.” That’s right. Let ’em think of that. Let them stay so out of touch with how they are perceived by people in this country. Let ’em go over there, get all these accolades and let them continue to live in the Universe of Lies. I think it’s much better than if he went over there and got booed out of the place. Give that another year and that will happen. This is good. This is good that it happened because it allows them to continue to live this delusion that they are special, unlike any others who have come before them.

Without firing a shot the left has seized the press, they have taken control of the banks, they’re about to take control of the insurance companies and wipe them out, much of the auto industry, the left is now setting a salary scale for people. They’ve taken over our currency, and they’re preparing to seize health care. We’re being occupied by the left.

And of course, it is all being done with the media’s assistance. It couldn’t have been done without a left-wing media, pop culture and academia helping with the non stop propaganda.

The list of lies is almost endless.

The New York Times reporter in the Soviet Union, Walter Duranty, denied that there was a famine in the Ukraine in 1931-32 — the Communist-induced famine that killed about five million Ukrainians. And he won a Pulitzer Prize for it.

The media portrayed the Kennedy assassination as the product of Dallas’s “right-wing” “climate of hate” — even though a card-carrying Communist committed the assassination.

The media told us over and over about a heterosexual AIDS “epidemic” in the U.S. There was none. The media fabricated the heterosexual epidemic in order to remove stigma from gay males and in order to garner support for more AIDS research money.

Why all this mendacity?

There are truth tellers and there are liars on the right and on the left. But for the left, truth is subordinated to whatever it is the left most cares about: gay rights, minority rights, women’s rights, government health care and environmentalism being only the most obvious current examples.

That’s why talk radio, conservative websites, Fox News and conservative opinion pages, such as those of the Wall Street Journal and Investors Business Daily, are so important.

We are able to mitigate some of the damage the left does to the world of reality through conservative media outlets – but make no mistake – we are all now stuck in the left’s universe of lies.

That’s why Obama has been able to get away with lying about his past. That’s how he got away with lying about ObamaCare, that’s how he got away with all his scandals and abuses of power.

And it’s how he got away with lying about his drunk-driving illegal immigrant “Uncle Omar” who he previously claimed not to know.

Ace says, “it would be one thing if he lived with him as a child. But he lived with him as an adult in law school.”

The White House claimed Obama had never so much as met the man. They claim, now, that their previous claim was a mistake or something, because they had “researched” the question and had not found any evidence the two had met.

Instead of just asking Obama. Which they now say just occurred to them to do. And they claim it just occurred to them to ask Obama after a witness with no reason to lie (Omar’s landlord) came forward to say that Obama had lived with Omar.

President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.

Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.

On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.

But what else would you expect from the King of “the Liar’s Club”?:

He has lied from the start of his political life, which began not that long ago. For instance when he informed an audience of teachers in July 2008 on the campaign trail “I’ve written two books…I actually wrote them myself.” It was a lie. He has never written an eloquent line in his life, and those two books were professionally written. He speaks with the assistance of Teleprompters. His rhetoric is formulaic. At best, he counseled with a couple of ghostwriters to write the books that bear his name. At worst one was Bill Ayers, once a member of Students for a Democratic Society turned terrorist and then turned “educator” at the University of Illinois’s Chicago campus. If he were a right-winger he would probably still be in jail.

Writers from as varied backgrounds as Jack Cashill, the conservative journalist, to Obama’s popular biographer, Christopher Andersen, author of Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, have adduced evidence refuting Obama’s claim to authorship of his books. Last week Investor’s Business Daily cast still more doubt on Obama’s claim to have “written two books.” Now Ayers is speaking up suggestively, as he has a book out, which it is not selling all that well. Enticingly, he suggests that he is the real author of President Obama’s first book, Dreams from My Father.

Frankly I would have advised Our President to come clean about his bogus authorship years ago. Ayers is a decidedly shifty fellow and his wife, the former SDSer, Bernardine Dohrn, is worse. They were always spoiled university-bred radicals always expecting the Republic to fall for their Marxist mumbo jumbo. Yet America has never been very hospitable to the disciples of Papa Marx, much less when those disciples have pipe bombs in their hands.

Now, Roger Simon of PJ Media is taking a second look at some the other “conspiracy theories” that have plagued Obama since he first ran for office, and wonders, “what if it’s all true?”

 …in the wake of the serial lies about Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS, Fast and Furious, media surveillance, the NSA, Syria, Iran, etc., etc., I’m now prepared to believe many things of which I might initially have been at least somewhat skeptical.

To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me.

Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal he received financial preferences, scholarships and/or loans, as a foreign student.  They probably also reveal academic mediocrity, but that’s par for the course for many of our politicians (except it becomes embarrassing in Obama’s case where he has the reputation of being brilliant).

But that’s only one area of accusation.  What if they were all true — or, if not all, say thirty, forty or even fifty percent? What if this were actually demonstrated while he was still in office to the degree that the standard spin that all politician lie no longer applied? What if we could prove that it had gone well beyond that, beyond Nixon and Clinton far into the realm of an invented man? What would that mean, exactly?  Should his opponents rejoice?  Would a new era and truth, beauty and prosperity be upon us?

Not likely.  Great damage has been done. Consider for a moment that whatever theories we have about Obama, whatever prevarications and deceptions of which we are aware or unaware, are known equally to our adversaries — the intelligence agencies of China, Russia and Iran. Even if they were too dumb to figure it out for themselves, which they’re not, they read our newspapers and blogs.

These totalitarian — or near totalitarian, depending on how you want to parse it — states depend on lies for their existence.  In Obama they have found a partner in crime, a semblable, as Baudelaire would say. They are currently exploiting this.  In all likelihood our world will never be the same.  This is no cause for celebration by any American.

No. But then I’ve known that from day one. What about the rest of America? Are we sick of being lied to yet? Because whether they’re fudging on the enrollment numbers or the functionality of a glitchy insecure website no responsible entity would dream of directing consumers to, or Democrats doubling down on the “you can keep your plan” promise  – it’s a non stop geyser of  ObamaCare lies every single day.

Come this January, we may see some kingly “fixes” to this hot mess,

What will happen January 1 when thousands of people have car crashes or other need for insurance, but don’t have it, due to Obama’s incompetence and stubborness?

John Ekdahl suggested that Obama will just order hospitals and doctors to treat anyone who says he has insurance, whether he does or not. I believe Ekdahl’s term was that Obama will order everyone to be “deemed” as covered by insurance.

Is that inconceivable? I don’t think so. That’s what Allah’s thinking, too.

…and Republicans in Congress will be forced to go along with it because nobody wants to be responsible for people dying. King Obama reigns supreme in his universe of lies.

 

ObamaCare Is About Power and Control – Nothing More

Catching up on the news Wednesday night after an afternoon of shopping, and I’m struck by how much of it there is. We don’t get a reprieve from this carnival of outrageous outrages even during the holiday season.

The Oversight and Reform Committee held an ObamaCare hearing, Wednesday:  The Roll Out of HealthCare.gov: The Limitations of Big Government.

Gawd, I’m so sick of seeing gut wrenching headlines like this one: CONFIRMED: Obama WH Turned Down Offer to Build O-Care Website for Free – Blew a $1 Billion Instead

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) told Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom today that an internet giant offered to build the Obamacare website for free.

This was confirmed during testimony today before a Congressional committee. Issa, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman, said the Obama White House turned down the offer.

Bill Hemmer: Was it proven today that an internet company offered to build the website for free but the government passed on it? Was that true? Did that happen?

Rep. Darrell Issa: It was stated under oath that it was true. No one argued that it wasn’t.

In the tank, Politifact checked out a claim Newt Gingrich made during a primary debate in November 2011: Says IBM leader told Obama that using IBM technology to cut fraud could “pay for” health care reform.

In a recent Texas debate, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said the CEO of IBM had told President Barack Obama how to save billions of dollars in health-care fraud.

In a 2010 interview, IBM’s CEO said: “We could have improved quality and reduced the costs of the health-care system by $900 billion. … I said we would do it for free to prove that it works. They turned us down.”

Did this actually happen? To our inquiries, the White House did not confirm or deny the CEO’s claim. Read on!

Asked how he thought the White House visits had turned out, Palmisano replied: “We haven’t made any progress. It doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot of interaction.”

Murray: “Well, what’s the point of interaction if it doesn’t lead to progress?”

Palmisano: “You’d have to ask the people who aren’t progressing.”

He added, “We’ve done tons of work, and for whatever sets of reasons, we haven’t been able to establish, be in sync with, the priorities.”

Palmisano offered an example: “We — and I’m fairly confident about this one because it required no legislative change — we could have improved quality and reduced the costs of the health-care system by $900 billion… It was self-funding. You could have insured anybody you wanted to, illegal aliens, dogs, cats, ponies, whatever, right? And the stuff was simple. Did not require any big legislative change.”

About $400 billion of the reduced costs could be realized through negotiating discounts with drug companies, just as IBM negotiates its own discounts, he said. “Buy a nationwide discount,” he said. “Just like pharmaceutical companies sell to us on a nationwide discount. It’s no different. I said, ‘Take the IBM discount! Take the IBM discount.’ “

Another example of savings: “Two hundred billion in fraud. That was a 3 percent improvement, by the way. This wasn’t transformational. … There’s so much fraud in the system — 3 percent and then Year 7 was 8 percent, Year 5 was 5 percent. It’s 200 billion.”

Murray: “And why didn’t they do that? Is there a fraud –“

Palmisano: “I said we would do it for free to prove that it works. They turned us down. You’ll have to ask them… Free. Free wasn’t good enough.”

Murray asks again: Why?

Palmisano replies, “I think what it is, not to be judgmental about these things, I really do think what it is is that we weren’t aligning with the priorities. … the priority at the time, if I stay on my example of health care, was not to reduce costs and improve quality.  It was to provide insurance and coverage for more people.  That was our priority in the line.  All we said, if you did this you could fund the priority without increasing the deficit, taking taxes up.  And we couldn’t sell the case.”

Politifraud found more evidence that it was true than it was not true, so naturally they deemed it  “half true.”  Anyway, it sure looks like IBM could be the company in question.

Palmisano didn’t want to be judgmental – but I will. Costs don’t matter to Obama. That’s why we’ve seen a sickening expansion of government in the past five years and the waste, fraud and abuse that comes along with it. That’s why we see Obama constantly traveling with all the expense it entails –  campaigning, fundraising, and vacationing (hey, what do you know – the fam is heading to Hawaii this month for the 5th Christmas in a row.)

It couldn’t be more obvious that he  wants to spend the country into oblivion.

Palmisano was right – Obama’s only priority was to expand coverage for more people –  that is – to dump more people from the middle class into government subsidized plans and Medicaid.

Another interesting ObamaCare fact was discovered today: ONE PRIVATE MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT, SEBELIUS IN 3.5 YEARS LEADING UP TO OBAMACARE LAUNCH:

A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News’ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch.

The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement.

More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private meetings with 16 other Cabinet secretaries in the same time span from Obamacare’s March 23, 2010 signing to November 30, 2013. Why Obama would devote so little face time to the person tasked with implementing what he calls his “most important initiative” is presently unclear.

Here’s my guess. He didn’t give a shit. He already knew that there would be some “bumps in the road” when millions of people  lost their insurance plans. You have to break some eggs to make an omelet, but you don’t have to yammer on and on about it.  The computer stuff was the least of his worries. And in case you haven’t heard – the website’s fixed, already. Obama said so.

What these little vignettes show is that the  objective of ObamaCare was never about improving the health care system. It is about power and control over peoples’ lives. And obtaining a permanent Dem (Socialist) majority. You know how certain delusional sounding Dems like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid keep saying, people are going to love ObamaCare – Democrats are going to run on it in 2014?

Yeah – no. They’re getting a little ahead of themselves, there. Another 50-100 million people are going to lose their insurance plans, next year. The Regime is not going to be able to fix that in time for the mid terms. 2014 is going to make 2010 look like a Sunday walk in the park – the Dem carnage will be breathtaking. AR Senator Mark Prior is literally on his knees praying to Jesus to save him. But it won’t matter as long as Obama’s “signature” Frankenstein monster is allowed to stumble across the finish line in 2014. If Dems lose more seats in the House, and the majority in the Senate, what’s that to Obama? He’s not running again, and he’s proven to be quite adept at going over Congress’s heads. By 2016, I imagine he thinks the storm will have passed, and people will be delighted with their shiny new ObamaCare plans. There will be expansions of Medicaid and subsidies to the extent that the transformation from our free market based health care system to Single Payer will be nearly complete. And we’ll all live happily ever after.

Oh, but how will the government be able to cover so many more people? Won’t they eventually run out of other peoples’ money? No, they’ll just keep taxing at confiscatory rates, borrowing and printing money. Wow… can they keep doing that forever? Nope, and when the collapse happens, it will be spectacular.

I sure hope Congress is taking a good long look at that “check” to Obama’s lawlessness.
