News and Commentary for October 3

“He has declared war on their souls.” Obama Prohibits Practice of Catholicism in U.S.

“The more health care decisions are made by the government, the more power we give them to split limited resources between citizens, the more each little faction of Americans with this condition or that condition is going to have to lobby for care. Every single treatment will have a constituency, an online petition, a lobbyist, and will vie with other Americans to scoop up as big a piece as they can from a pie that will not grow to serve the population it’s serving and distribute resources efficiently, as in a free market, but stay the same size and distribute them Washington-style.” California: So, Obamacare exchange traffic wasn’t actually 5 million; it was 700K

You cannot tell me that Obama is not stealing from our children, because this is proof that he is. “On Jan. 20, 2009, when Obama was inaugurated, 40.6 percent of the federal government’s total debt was intragovernmental debt and 59.4 percent was debt held by the public. On Sept. 30, 2013, 28.4 percent of the debt was intragovernmental and 71.6 percent was debt held by the public.” Treasury: Under Obama, U.S. Gov’t Debt Held by Public Up 90%

“Given the enormous responsibility to handle sensitive data in a careful, neutral manner, combined with the overwhelming pressure to boost Obamacare enrollments, you’d think the feds would only choose navigators with the most impeccable records. Yet, less than a year ago, Seedco agreed to settle a civil fraud lawsuit “for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city.”” Seedco: Obamacare’s fraud-stained navigators

“Washington once said that government is “a troublesome servant and a fearful master.” Government has long ceased being a troublesome servant and has become our fearful master. Today the servants of the people have more servants of their own than many kings and queens.” Serving Our Government Masters

“The most troubling of these “glitches,” (which Kathleen Sebelius called “a great problem to have”) takes the form of lax online security. Numerous fake websites have apparently emerged by third-party websites aimed at stealing the information respondents enter online. The security of the exchanges themselves have also been brought into question: is the information that Americans are entering on the site and sharing with ObamaCare “navigators” safe from outside hackers and identity thieves?” This Is What Government-Run Healthcare Looks Like

“Closed companies forced to buy the Barrycades — “We are like prisoners of war who have to pay for our prison.”” BREAKING: White House Ordering Hundreds of Privately Run, Privately Funded Parks to Close

“Over the last few days, the Obama administration has been exposed as a cynical, heartless political operation that is willing to sacrifice ordinary Americans to its overriding goal of maximizing its own power over our lives. Barack Obama should be ashamed of himself.” The WWII Memorial: More Guards Than At Benghazi

Astroturfing. “Then, remarkably, a guy carrying a sign passed by wearing a McDonald’s employee shirt, which I noted. I then began asking them how much they had been paid to protest, at which point the guy wearing the McDonald’s shirt came back and admitted he had been paid $15 to attend the protest.” BUSTED! SEIU Organizes Fake Protesters At WWII Memorial

“Charles C.W. Cooke takes a look at shutdowns through history, and notes this is the first one in which one side — that would be The Searchlight Stalker Harry Reid and his sidelined flunkie Obama — has simply refused to negotiate at all.” If The Government’ Shut Down, How Come I’m Workin’ So Hard?

“It is rare, indeed, that a president bad mouths his own economy to Wall Street – no matter what Congress is doing. In fact, I have a hard time coming up with any precedent for it. But here was the president yesterday, urging Wall Street to be “concerned” (panic) because of the shutdown.” Is Obama Trying to Panic Wall Street

“”There was a time not so long ago when the world looked to America for both political and economic leadership. But now that can no longer be taken for granted thanks to Mr. Obama’s inability to provide decisive leadership on either front.”” Obama’s fecklessness leads to American decline

Something to ponder. “No question: Republicans use and abuse of the filibuster is unprecedented. But they got the idea from the Senate Democratic leader.” Who Broke Washington? Blame Harry Reid Hat Tip:

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ! “A new wave of redistribution will arrive in America on Jan. 1, primarily thanks to the Affordable Care Act. The president’s health-insurance plan forces those who hire, work and produce to pay full price for health care, while creating generous discounts for practically everyone else.” How Obamacare Wrecks the Work Ethic

A chilling read. We’re getting closer to a police state by the minute. “Coming back to our hotel from dinner, my wife and I were stopped at a GCRNA entrance that has been transformed into a armed checkpoint under the hot glare of flashing red and blue law enforcement lights. As usual, we presented our week-long NPS entrance pass to the armed guard at the checkpoint. The armed officer did not know what the NPS  pass was for, so  this was NOT an NPS employee. He then asked if we were camping in the GCRNA. We said no, and said were staying at the Lake Powell Resort hotel, a few minutes up the road. He then asked for our “documentation” before we could proceed to our destination. This was the second time today we had been asked for our “documentation”. The first time we just happened to have the email confirmation in the car; this evening we brought it with us just in case we were asked again.” Feds’ punitive shutdown in Western parks
