President Obama acknowledges that he was wrong when he said Americans could keep their existing health plans under the Affordable Care Act. He’s apologized, and he’s told insurance companies they should let people keep those plans for a year.
But has that mollified Republicans eager to kill Obamacare, either outright or by draining it of all meaning? No way. If anything, this perceived weakness has them sharpening their political rhetoric.
On Saturday, their designated attacker as much as said Obama lied when he repeatedly assured the public, “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

“President Obama’s so-called apology was as phony as his fraudulent marketing of Obamacare,” Sen. Johnson said.
“Those assurances weren’t slight exaggerations or innocent shadings of the truth. They were statements that were fully vetted, coldly calculated, and carefully crafted to deceptively sell your health care plan to a trusting public,” Johnson charged. “It was a political fraud echoed relentlessly by House and Senate Democrats who should be held accountable for the disastrous consequences of their grand deception.”
“Consumer fraud this massive in the private sector could – and should – bear serious legal ramifications,” he said. “For President Obama, however, it helped secure enough votes to pass Obamacare, and win reelection.”
Whether or not Obama knew early on that some people would be kicked off their health insurance policies may never be known. There’s no smoking gun – no secret Oval Office tape – so far.
But large numbers of Americans – already fed up with the HealthCare.gov debacle – are not inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Asked whether Obama “knowingly deceived the public when he said that if people liked their health insurance plans they would be able to keep them under the 2010 health care law,” 46 percent of respondents in the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll say “yes,” including 17 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents. (Forty-seven percent say “no.”)
A new Fox News poll came up with similar results: half of those surveyed believe the president knowingly lied when he made the notorious “you can keep it” pledge, nearly 60 percent believe the administration knew ahead of time that people would have their health insurance policies canceled because of the law, and 55 percent think the White House has “tried to deceive” people about it.
With midterm elections around the corner, Republicans are stalking political prey – especially any Democratic incumbents who voted for Obamacare. And they’re using Obama’s “grand deception,” as Sen. Johnson put it Saturday, in politically predatory fashion.
“There’s nothing more damaging than when your word is devalued and people think they were misled,” Rep. Greg Walden, (R) of Oregon, who heads the National Republican Congressional Committee, the House GOP‘s campaign arm, told the Associated Press. “And especially damaging is when it actually affects you and your family. So in terms of degree of impact, this is off the Richter scale.”
For his part, Obama might have been expected to talk about the Affordable Care Act in his radio and Internet address Saturday.
But at this point, it’s actions instead of words that will be judged. And to dwell on it in this venue – apologizing some more, promising that things will get better with HealthCare.gov – would look like he’s trapped in one issue.
In his address, Obama talked about energy policy.
“Just this week, we learned that for the first time in nearly two decades, the United States of America now produces more of our own oil here at home than we buy from other countries,” he said. “That’s a big deal. That’s a tremendous step towards American energy independence.”

By AL HENDERSHOT – Editor of The Obama Hustle – 04/17/2013
On April 10, 2013 the FBI showed up at my front door. When I answered the door they told me who they were and that they wanted to speak to me about activities with / about the exposed website that was posting information about Muller, Holder, and Obama.
Well, obviously, I have nothing to hide so I gave them my computer. I was also handcuffed while they were talking to me.
Two days later I get a phone call from the FBI telling me that I am not in trouble and that I have nothing to worry about in connection to my activities with others and what I am writing about in my blog www.theobamahustle.wordpress.com On the 12th I go by the FBI office with a witness, just in case, to pick up my property and again they tell me, “that I am not in trouble and that I have nothing to worry about in connection to my activities with others and what I am writing about in my blog”.
When they were at my house they, the FBI secured my personal information as well such as my SSN and other personal information. I have no doubt they investigated me out thoroughly and also investigated at what my activities have been in connection to the Obama fraud evidence and others as well.
Later on in the day I received some phone calls from people that I have been working with on the Obama issue. They, the people that I spoke with said that my activities with the “Cold Case Posse” and my postings on Obama in The Obama Hustle along with the evidence that I have collected on him and his family probably had something to do with my visit from the FBI.
I have not heard of any others being visited by the Feds as it pertains to the exposed website. In my discussions on Friday we came to the conclusion that this is very interesting in that there must be some people that are worried over what information might be available against the anointed and protected one from his lies being exposed.
I will not be deterred. I will not be harassed. I am not afraid. I will give my life for my country and for what I believe in. “FREEDOM”.
We are in a fight for our nation from an individual and others who want to destroy the United States of America and transform this great nation into a melting pot and Socialistic paradise for radicals and illegal aliens so they can stay in power.
GOD Bless America and those patriots in this fight against the evil ones that want to enslave us, kill GOD, and kill our babies.
It is well known that Obama supposedly attended Columbia University for his supposed last year of undergraduate studies. However, the name used for the financial aid that he reportedly received has been an unanswered question until now. There can be no denying that Obama used a different name to obtain monies reserved for foreign students to pay for his tuition to Columbia University back in the 80’s when was supposedly an undergraduate student.
In October of 2011 I was conducting one of my daily database searches for any information relating to Obama and his alter identities such as his other last name of Soetoro. I discovered an anomaly using the database information that was pulled when I used the last name of Soetoro in and for the state of New York. The following exhibits are the items that were pulled when the searches were completed.
Exhibit 1 shows the database pull that details two names, one for a Barack Soetoro and the other is for Barack’s sister Maya K Soetoro.
Please note the name of the first person in this particular search. The first name is Barack and the last name is Soetoro. This is the name that “Obama” was using when he was a child living in Indonesia. Now, when he returned to the United States and began living in HI he started using the name of Obama, but secretly he was using his legal last name of Soetoro as of his tenure as a student at Columbia University.
Exhibit 2 details the search that I completed using Barack Obama’s name in and for the state of NY.
The significance of these two searches is that the result shown in (exhibit 1) was the first search completed which lead me to complete the second search detailed in (exhibit 2) which I completed using Obama individually as the search for the state of NY. The information that pulled was Barack Obama linked to the same address as Barack Soetoro. This address is 2960 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Now, why is this significant? Here is why this information is so significant.
I completed a search on the Columbia University website using the address 2960 Broadway and what pulled up in the search was this information in the search results on page 2:
Exhibit 3 below is in the from of a PDF file that I downloaded from Columbia University and it details the process for permanent residents wishing to obtain a social security number through Columbia University.
In order to obtain funding, permanent residents must obtain a number to apply for financial aid and or seek employment. Now it is not known whether or not Obama had a job or not while attending Columbia University, but documentation was required for financial aide. So did he Soetoro / Obama obtain a SSN using the alias of Barack Soetoro through the International Scholars and Students Office?
International Scholars and Students Office:
Office & Courier Address: 524 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10027
Mailing Address: Mail Code 5724 2960 Broadway New York, NY 10027 212-854-3587 Fax 212-851-12350
The following excerpt is from a PDF that dictates how registered foreign student status is handled at Columbia University:
J-1 Exchange Visitor Status
– There are many categories of
J-1, including a student category. To be eligible for the J-1
student category, over half of your funding must come from a
source other than your personal or family funds. Common
sources of funding for EVs include funding from a government,
international organization or university. Students fully funded by
Columbia would be eligible for J-1 status.
Certificate of Eligibility
– This document certifies eligibility for
F-1 or J-1 status. It is presented to the U.S. consulate to apply
for a visa and to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
official when you enter the U.S. The Certificate of Eligibility is
also referred to as the Visa Certificate, I-20 (for F-1 status), or
DS-2019 (for J-1 status). Students are eligible for the Visa
Certificate if they have been admitted to Columbia University,
will study in F-1 or J-1 status, and have documented their ability
to finance their education.
- The I-20 is a form issued by Columbia University for use
in applying for the F-1 visa and entering the United States. The
I-20 is issued to admitted students who have shown proof of
their ability to finance their academic program. It includes your
biographical details and information on your source of funding
and academic program. You must keep all I-20s that are issued
to you. It is recommended that you also keep a copy of all I-20s
for your records.
– The I-94 is a small white card that records your legal
entry in to the U.S., your immigration status, and how long you
can stay in the U.S. You complete it before seeing the
immigration officer who processes it and gives you a portion of
the form that s/he usually staples in your passport. The I-94
also records your arrivals and departures. Each time you leave
the U.S., the I-94 is removed (unless you are traveling to
Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean). You receive a new one
each time you enter the U.S. For as long as you are studying,
you must have an I-94 that shows you are in either F-1 or J-1
status. Though the I-94 does not look important, it is one of the
most important documents you have. It is recommended that
you make a photocopy of both sides of the form each time you
get a new one in the event that your original form is lost or
What student status and what forms did Barack Soetoro use at Columbia University?
In February of 2010, someone had to have accessed the records of Barack Soretoro at Columbia University and altered them therefore creating the imputed data creating the file for Barack Obama on the same day of February 2010 so as to produce the results obtained by me as of October of 2011.
I challenge anyone to disprove my findings. We will have to open the records and examine them completely so as to disprove my findings and get to the truth once and for all.

(CNSNews.com) – In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.
Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.
The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.
The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.
“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.
Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.
In the new final rules published Wednesday, IRS set in law the rules for implementing the penalty Americans must pay if they fail to obey Obamacare’s mandate to buy insurance.
To help illustrate these rules, the IRS presented examples of different situations families might find themselves in.
In the examples, the IRS assumes that families of five who are uninsured would need to pay an average of $20,000 per year to purchase a Bronze plan in 2016.
Using the conditions laid out in the regulations, the IRS calculates that a family earning $120,000 per year that did not buy insurance would need to pay a “penalty” (a word the IRS still uses despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is in fact a “tax”) of $2,400 in 2016.
For those wondering how clear the IRS’s clarifications of this new “penalty” rule are, here is one of the actual examples the IRS gives:
“Example 3. Family without minimum essential coverage.
“(i) In 2016, Taxpayers H and J are married and file a joint return. H and J have three children: K, age 21, L, age 15, and M, age 10. No member of the family has minimum essential coverage for any month in 2016. H and J’s household income is $120,000. H and J’s applicable filing threshold is $24,000. The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000.
“(ii) For each month in 2016, under paragraphs (b)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(iii) of this section, the applicable dollar amount is $2,780 (($695 x 3 adults) + (($695/2) x 2 children)). Under paragraph (b)(2)(i) of this section, the flat dollar amount is $2,085 (the lesser of $2,780 and $2,085 ($695 x 3)). Under paragraph (b)(3) of this section, the excess income amount is $2,400 (($120,000 – $24,000) x 0.025). Therefore, under paragraph (b)(1) of this section, the monthly penalty amount is $200 (the greater of $173.75 ($2,085/12) or $200 ($2,400/12)).
“(iii) The sum of the monthly penalty amounts is $2,400 ($200 x 12). The sum of the monthly national average bronze plan premiums is $20,000 ($20,000/12 x 12). Therefore, under paragraph (a) of this section, the shared responsibility payment imposed on H and J for 2016 is $2,400 (the lesser of $2,400 or $20,000).”

Will Alabama Supreme Court Rule Obama Ineligible?
Over the past year, both before and since the elections, there have been a number of court cases challenging Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility. Most of the cases have been dismissed by judges for reasons that are not truly legitimate, but many feel they were dismissed to avoid the political ramifications.
Just last week I wrote about a case that was filed in Florida, that not only challenged Obama’s eligibility, but stated that he was a direct threat to the safety and security of the United States. That case has yet to be heard.
Yet another case filed in Alabama may present one of the best chances of producing a ruling against Obama. In this case, Hugh McInnish and others have filed suit against Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman for failure to properly verify the eligibility of Barack Obama. The case points out that the state constitution requires the Secretary of State to verify a candidate’s eligibility and that Chapman failed to accurately verify Obama’s eligibility.
The attorney handling this case is the same attorney handling the case in Florida. Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and the Klayman Law Firm in Washington, will hopefully be arguing this case before the Alabama State Supreme Court. The reason the case is going to the state Supreme Court is that a previous judge dismissed the case. In that case the state argued:
“[An attorney general’s opinion] is not case precedent binding on this court… Nevertheless, it constitutes an admission by Alabama’s chief law enforcement officer on behalf of the state that if the Secretary of State has knowledge gained from an official source about a candidate’s eligibility then she ‘should not’ certify the candidate.”
Klayman argues that this admission of the state justifies the actions taken by his clients. They believe that there is sufficient evidence presented by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department Cold Case Posse to indicate that the long form birth certificate presented by the White House on behalf of Obama is in fact a forgery and that its presentation to the people of the United States constitutes fraud. Klayman argues:
“Plaintiffs have shown, backed by sworn affidavits from an ‘official source,’ Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio and his investigator, Mike Zullo, that Barack H. Obama is not a natural born citizen eligible to be president. … There is credible evidence that Mr. Obama was not born within the United States and that his birth certificate or other identifying documents are fraudulent.”
“The secretary of state, having the power to certify candidates, can surely de-certify – in effect disqualify – them if they are found to be ineligible. Mr. Obama proceeded at his own risk. He defrauded the people of the state of Alabama as well as the other voters in this country, and incredibly has served an entire presidential term without once having to prove that he was indeed a natural born citizen, despite all the evidence to the contrary.”
What raises hopes for the success of this case lies with the members of the Alabama state Supreme Court. In an earlier hearing on the same argument the high court denied the petition by McInnish to require that Obama produce an original copy of his birth certificate. When Alabama’s High Court denied that earlier petition Justice Tom Parker filed an unpublished concurrence in the case stating that the charges of forgery were a legitimate concern.
In addition to Justice Parker, Klayman is counting on newly elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore. Chief Justice Moore is a strong advocate of constitutional law rather than ruling on the prevailing politics of the time. When Moore won re-election to the state Supreme Court he vowed that he will do his utmost to uphold the Constitution of the United States as well as the Constitution of the state of Alabama.
In speaking on constitutional law, Moore said that humans will misbehave when they are not constrained by law and that the Constitution was set up with the goal to restraining human excesses. He went on to describe his view of constitutional law as:
“The whole basis of the Constitution is the restraint strength of human power. The only way you can do that is acknowledged that morality and law does come from God. No president has the power to violate constitutional restraints of power. The members of the legislature don’t and neither does the Supreme Court. The Constitution is the rule of law and my job is to uphold the rule of law.”
Klayman is hoping that the skepticism of Justice Parker and the staunch stand for constitutional law by Chief Justice Moore will be enough to prove their case that Barack Hussein Obama has not provided the proper legal documentation to prove that he meets the eligibility requirements for president of the United States as set by the Constitution. This case above all others that I have seen in the past year stands the best chance of winning.
