AUDIO: Obama Admits Ignorance on House Healthcare Bill

Does Section 102 of the House health legislation outlaw private insurance? How dare anyone doubt the President's word! Nonetheless, Obama was asked that question and his response doesn't instill much confidence. During a conference call, a blogger asked Obama about it based on what he'd read in Investors Business Daily. Obama's response?

Hear it for yourself right here.

Ok, as you let it sink in that Obama is "not familiar" with a key provision in House Bill 3200, take a look at the Investor Business Daily article. Apparently, Mr. Obama could have become familiar with the provision by getting through the first 16 pages.

IBD Reports..
It turns out we were right: The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage. Under the Orwellian header of "Protecting The Choice To Keep Current Coverage," the "Limitation On New Enrollment" section of the bill clearly states:

"Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day" of the year the legislation becomes law.
Here's part of Section 102, which is the provision in question:

(a) Grandfathered Health Insurance Coverage Defined- Subject to the succeeding provisions of this section, for purposes of establishing acceptable coverage under this division, the term `grandfathered health insurance coverage' means individual health insurance coverage that is offered and in force and effect before the first day of Y1 if the following conditions are met:


(A) IN GENERAL- Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day of Y1.

(B) DEPENDENT COVERAGE PERMITTED- Subparagraph (A) shall not affect the subsequent enrollment of a dependent of an individual who is covered as of such first day.
Hmmmm. Check out the whole bill if you dare.

KEY QUESTION: During the audio, Obama says he will NOT SIGN any bill that prevents people from keeping their existing medical coverage. Does anyone think that if a 1018 page Healthcare bill ended up on Obama's desk right now, he'd give a rip about what's in it?

He's demanding the bill be passed before the August recess and he hasn't even gotten to page 16 yet!

VIDEO: O'Reilly Interviews Guy who Punked Barbara Boxer

Harry Alford, president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce called out Barbara Boxer when she tried to play the race card by whipping out resolutions by the NAACP and the CEO of 100 black workers to argue her point on green jobs, which was in opposition to that of Alford.

Alford appeared on O'Reilly's program on July 20th and it was definitely worth watching but Bill refused to concede Alford's point that Boxer was being racial. Yes, the stakes are higher for O'Reilly than they are for the rest of us but Alford's point that Boxer was using black groups to pit against a black group with which she disagreed.

At times, O'Reilly sacrafices objectivity for the sake of being perceived as independent. It was obvious what Boxer was doing and O'Reilly wouldn't admit it.

Other than that, pretty good interview. CLICK HERE to watch.

Just in case you missed the exchange between Alford and Boxer, enjoy....

VIDEO: Obama Gaffe on Healthcare INEFFECIENCIES

Did he really say that? $100 says the Teleprompter now has a counseling report in its file. There are freudian slips that are innocuous, some that carry irony, and still others that seem to reveal true intent. Echoes of when Obama said, "an acorn doesn't fall far from the tree" back in October.

Islamic Conference in Chicago

A group calling itself Hizb ut-Tahrir held a conference at a hotel in Chicago this past Sunday. The name of the conference was, "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam". Why not, "The Fall of Fascism and the Rise of Islam"? Why not, "The Fall of Socialism and the Rise of Islam"?

Attacking capitalism is en vogue these days and Islamists seem to be riding the wave on the same boogie board as the socialists.

Fox News reported:
"Free market, organization, capitalization — all has failed and brought disaster to America," said one of the group's speakers.
Ask yourself how many people who voted for the current administration agree with that statement? Doesn't Bill Ayers and his ilk subscribe to such a notion?

Here's the entire Fox Story.

How about the DHS report? It would seem to me that DHS would be better served by shifting gears and doing a report on Islamic Extremism instead of Right Wing Extremism. If ever there was a group that deserves an entire DHS report dedicated to it, wouldn't Hizb ut-Tahrir qualify? Fox reports that it is
a global Sunni network with reported ties to confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Al Qaeda in Iraq's onetime leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
The State Department doesn't even have them listed as a terrorist organization.

Should we really be all that surprised? In order to win a war, isn't it first necessary to identify an enemy? The west has been fighting a tactic and ghosts. Those are not tangible enemies.

Failed wars:
War on Poverty
War on Drugs
War on Terrorism

After 9/11, George Bush gave all Muslims a pass by throwing a "peaceful" blanket over the entire religion instead of saying Islam is a religion that is home to militant Jihadists.

George Bush uttered the phrase, "Islamo-fascism" ONCE and backed down out of political correctness.

At the heart of American leadership not facing the enemy of militant Islam can only be one of two things.
