I have tried to show you that the government will never punish itself. I wrote a whole piece explaining that the entire concept is absurd. The idea of it is just one piece of the whole puzzle set up to distract the people into imagining that there are consequences to government abuse etc. and that the people themselves are IN CHARGE. As long as the people accept the laughable idea that the federal government can be trusted to police itself, there is NO CHANCE to change anything. The reality is that AT MOST when there is a “scandal” the government fires a few people so they can go on to better paying private jobs.
We are seeing this now played out with Obamacare, and of course it is doing so in a way that is NOT making news. Hmmm, so hard to figure out why? Turns out that the lady who ran the whole thing for the last 5 years is stepping down. The one who supposedly is “in charge”. The one person, if there is any person, who needs to be the person where the “buck stops”. That lady. So what’s the big deal you say? Well, do you remember all the crap that went on with Obamacare?
It all started when the website was rolled out. It became a “huge scandal”. It crashed it didn’t work. It was junk. It is STILL JUNK. Do you realize this p.o.s. cost in excess of 2 BILLION dollars. Are you hearing me? 2 B. for a f’ing website? Here, from Bloomberg.
The federal government’s Obamacare enrollment system has cost about $2.1 billion so far, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis of contracts related to the project.
Remember how it was built by a Canadian company and the whole thing stunk of an inside deal b/c of a relationship with Michelle O?
First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website.
Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.
Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
Did anything happen when any of that happened or when it was discovered? Oh, the fools and jesters on the right raised a big stink. Made all sorts of threats and determined to “get to the bottom of it”, as usual. But what ACTUAL consequence has there been for any of this billion dollar scam? Come on, you know the answer… none.
Then we all learned about Grubergate. Remember how the “architect” of Obamacare got caught admitting that it was intentionally sold as something it was not to the American People. He called the people “stupid”, and HE IS RIGHT, lol, they are stupid since they allow this stuff to happen over and over again and still BELIEVE that the government will check ITSELF.
This is one of the best series I have found on the whole Grubergate thing if you’re interested. It is packed with info. Here is an excerpt of what it covers. Do people even care enough to even bother to read it? Lol I doubt it. So is it any wonder our “rulers” keep ripping everyone off and calling the people stupid?
“Grubergate” has so many facets, I divided this post into several parts. Here in part one, I present the full context behind Gruber’s “stupidity of the American voter” comments. The context is essential for understanding the breadth and depth of the deception he admitted. Part two explains that indeed Gruber admitted the entire PPACA is just one giant deception. Part three explains that Gruber also admitted he approves of such deceptions when necessary to achieve universal coverage. (Too harsh? Read on.) Part four explains how Gruber’s remarks prove Chief Justice John Roberts was wrong in NFIB v. Sebelius. Part five explains how King v. Burwell, the next big ObamaCare case to go before the Supreme Court, could thwart efforts to hide the law’s costs from voters. Part six shows how Gruber and other PPACA architects, including President Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are determined to keep the deception going. Part seven explains how many supporters of universal coverage don’t even realize they are among those the architects deceived. Part eight offers Congress suggestions on minimizing the harm from the PPACA’s deceptions and preventing similar deceptions in the future.
Excuse me while I laugh at “part eight”. Okay, I’m back. Now, did anything happen as a result of Grubergate? Did anyone go to prison? Has Obama been brought up on impeachment? How about Gruber himself? Is he going to prison? Is he “ruined”? what do you think? Are any of the congressmen who pushed it being investigated for bribery or fraud or anything AT ALL? Of course not, and they never will.
Did I tell you that this is exactly what would happen when the whole thing was all the rage? YES.. yes I did. But still people continue to believe WHENEVER SOMETHING IS HAPPENING AGAIN, that it is Bungling or accident or that they “will get to the bottom of it with hearings and other nonsense”.
Now we have found out that the Obamacare sign ups are laughable frauds. I am Shocked… shocked I say. When the news broke it was yet another “scandal”. Those representatives up there helping us “got right on it”. Right wing radio was cranked up to do its part to drain off energy into a dead end of “political” effort and blather. There was going to be hell to pay. But did anything ever actually happen? Will anything ever happen? Come on now, all together… NOOO. Lol All of the “miscounts” and double counts and all the other crap they pulled are being blamed on bureaucratic errors and “honest mistakes”.
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee last month grilled Tavenner about the miscount, which had helped push the first-year enrollment total for ObamaCare past 7 million — a milestone that was celebrated by the administration at the time. Tavenner said some figures were “inadvertently” double-counted, an explanation that was greeted with deep skepticism from Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), whose staff identified the error.
It is Always the same people.
So my point is simple. Why is she allowed to leave without answering for the fact that she is in charge of a fraud? Why is she allowed to leave without serving prison time for the hundreds of millions wasted on the inside deal that was the website? What about the fraud of the faked up numbers that made them “hit their minimum sign up goal”? Why? Why can she simply go on her way and the news doesn’t even bother to REMIND the people of WHO is leaving and their actual legacy, let alone be up in arms that she is allowed to go freely?
You want a real kicker on her leaving? As she leaves, Orrin Hatch, that “esteemed” Senator from Utah, often considered for the supreme court! actually “praises her”. Lol. Yes, the “opposition party” discusses what a wonderful job she did.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) praised the departing official in a statement released just minutes after her announcement.
“Marilyn has done a great job in a very difficult position under near impossible circumstances,” Hatch, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, wrote in a statement.
“She has proven herself to be a strong leader and a straight-shooter who brought in much needed private sector sensibility into the agency,” he wrote.
Excuse me once again while I laugh. This is what passes for “oversight” in the political system. This is why GRUBER is right, the people are stupid. What does it take for people to see that the “conservatives” and liberals and everyone else up there are ALL ON THE SAME TEAM?
It isn’t complicated, if you are sailing you have to tack left and tack right to get where you are going. That is the same thing the opposition is in politics. In order to fool the people, you have to appear to have opposition. It isn’t complicated, they make up foils in the form of “opposition” in order to tack left and right as we go where they ALL want.
Distractions. Fake investigations. “Outrage” and more investigations. Then new distractions and never any resolution or consequence to the old ones. That is all just part of the system. Stop buying into the idea that the conservatives or any other party is going to DO anything about it.
IF THEY AREN’T TALKING ABOUT THE REAL PROBLEM, WHICH IS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS IN CHARGE OF OVERSEEING ITSELF, THEN THEY ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM AND PART OF THE DISTRACTIONS. It is no more complicated than that.
The whole thing reminds me of that great WHO song with the famous ripped lyrics, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
That’s all for now my brainwashed Brethren. Don’t be down, live in the light and tell someone about the truth about the law.
