The Word Is Untrustworthy


by Sam Huntington

“We have to pass the pass the bill so that you can, uh … find out what’s in it … away from the fog of the controversy.” —Nancy Pelosi

Does this make Nancy Pelosi a liar, like Barack Obama?  No, not really.  She was only obfuscating the issue because no one in the Democratic Party wanted (then or now) clarity for the American people.  Although, I think it must be said that while Pelosi wasn’t lying, she was still demonstrating dishonesty.  Who votes on a bill as important as one affecting one-sixth of the entire economy without reading it, understanding it, and being able to explain it to one’s constituents?  The answer is no one.  But there are, I suppose, two possible exceptions: the first possibility is that Nancy Pelosi is an incompetent boob who should never have been elected as Speaker of the House of Representatives.  The second likelihood is that Nancy Pelosi knew full well what the bill entailed, and she intentionally and conspiratorially misled the American people.  It is hard to know which is worse.

What we know now is that it was always a Democratic intention that the American people should lose their existing health insurance, and their doctor.  It is the only way to force the American people into the ACA, or as some would have it —Commie Care.  And President Obama lied to the American people a second time. 

“I’m sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me.” —Barack Obama

It simply doesn’t wash, Mr. President.  You knew all along that the American people would find themselves in this situation because it was your intention to force people into Obama Care.  

But you know, it does make me curious whether Barack Obama has a compulsive lying disorder … and I wonder if it is possible that such a disease can be unhappily transmitted to other members of his administration.  If we aren’t careful, this lying to the American people could become pandemic.

    Excerpt from this source:

    After meeting with several Obamacare Navigators who openly encouraged our undercover reporters to lie about income status, health history and more, it became clear that personal data was also being “cross-pollinated.”

    Enter Enroll America, a Sebelius-linked group dedicated to signing people up for Obamacare and Chris Tarango, Texas Enroll America Communications Director who Project Veritas caught on tape agreeing to help obtain a private list of potential Obamacare enrollee data for election/political purposes. Tarango goes so far to say he’ll “Do whatever it f****** takes.”...

    Excerpt from Second wave of health plan cancellations looms:

    A new and independent analysis of ObamaCare warns of a ticking time bomb, predicting a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall -- right before the mid-term elections....

    UNTRUSTWORTHY, INDEED!

  2. Very frankly I don't believe we on the right NEED any further evidence that those on the left -- and Establishment Republicans who continually aid and abet the left by refusing to offer intelligent, credible, meaningful, constructive opposition -- are guilty of malfeasance -- ABUSE of POWER.

    What we DO need -- most desperately -- is discussion of better, more workable, less intrusive, less disorienting, less punitive, more constructive, less expensive, more market based ALTERNATIVES to the horrifying boondoggle -- this GORDIAN KNOT fashioned, tied and tangled with ROPES of POISONOUS SNAKES the Marxicrats have tossed into our midst. as "The Law of the Land."

    I hate John Roberts' effing guts, because he COULD have STOPPED it dead in its tracks and REFUSED to take the responsibility, but any further discussion of the mental, moral, and spiritual deficiencies and treachery of John Roberts or any of the frankly vile Democrats is bound to be fruitless.

    PLEASE take a good long look at yesterday's post (WEDNESDAY, 11/20/13) at FreeThinke's blog.

    I have made an effort there to offer some POSSIBLE constructive alternatives, and wish with all my heart for constructive criticism and suggestions as to what ELSE we could do, and how BETTER we might improve the status quo.

    I'm not looking for applause, for "fans," or for mindless affirmation, neither do I want to bother with belligerent quips, insults, catcalls, idiotic invective, and baseless accusations. I'm hoping someone will come along with ideas that might be better or more refined than those presented, or at least suggest more effective ways of selling market based solutions to a public hooked on the false premises and deceitful promises of socialism.

    We KNOW Obamacare is ROTTEN. We don't need to keep on complaining about it, we need to explore ways we might UNDO it and REPLACE it with something far BETTER than anything we've had in the past.


    Please try.

    Its progressive assholes like some of these morons on these boards fault. Obama and the progressives are just a symptom of their need to get other people to pay for their crap, while we (the honest hard working people) work for it.
    Welcome to progressive Utopia Pal.........
    By the way, isn't it wonderful how well Obamacare is coming along?

  6. The question is have we gone too far down the road to be able to salvage our health system. This website is no fluke. Planned. IMHO.

  7. I think lying has always been a prerequisite for being a politicians. However, in the past, they weren't so in-your-face obvious with their lies.

  9. "But you know, it does make me curious whether Barack Obama has a compulsive lying disorder … and I wonder if it is possible that such a disease can be unhappily transmitted"

    LIBERALISM is the disease present here and compulsive lying is a major symptom. This disease is transmitted, in no small way, by those so afflicted, who lie compulsively to the : reality challenged, morally impaired and easily fooled. This infirmity is reaching epidemic status and must be eradicated!

  10. Well, look at it this way, Sam.

    His goal was to help for profit insurers slam the plank a little further up our butts and he sure didn't lie to them.

    When your corporate masters call the tune, that's the one you dance to.

    But with the insurance profits rolling in, just think of all the jobs they'll create.

    Bend over, suckers.

  11. Ducktail,

    I am sure you are aware that under obamacare an insurance company is guaranteed a certain return and if they don't make it the governments pays them. This was written by the kill the middle class and small business democrats.

    ACA is truly a great piece of legislation. Provide healthcare for 20 million at little to no cost cancel coverage and raise the cost of 100 million and bill the middle class. While doing this be sure to blame the republicans. "I will shut the government down rather than delay the start of the ACA". He did just that and blamed the other guy, what a leader we have and because he leads from behind, he does have a certain odor.

    2. You live in Neverland. Completely innocent of common sense, and totally out of touch with reality.

      Of course what else could we expect from a self-advertised birdbrain?

  13. I’ll volunteer how bad Obama is: he makes lawyers look good. Pelosi’s been excommunicated, which is a bit of cheerful news in the Christian community. As for the rest of them who haven’t been excommunicated as yet, a pox on all their houses.

    1. Jack,
      I don't keep up with all the doings of the Catholic Church.

      Has Pelosi actually been excommunicated, or has there been only talk of excommunicating her?
