SCOTUS Obamacare Decision Makes Individual Mandate A Fact & Universal Healthcare Coverage A Fiction

Individual Mandate

Supreme Court ruling re “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” means corporations can use federal law to force people to buy their products.

SCOTUS OBAMACARE DECISION MAKES INDIVIDUAL MANDATE A FACT & UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE COVERAGE A FICTION

If you want to read all 974 pages of the deceptively-titled “Patient Protection And Affordable Healthcare Act” (the actual Obamacare law) you can do so here:

If you want to read all 193 pages of the obscurely-styled “National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius” U.S. Supreme Court decision (the actual Obamacare ruling) you can do so here:

http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/11pdf/11-393c3a2.pdf

As was the case with F. James (“Fat Jim”) Sensenbrenner Jr.’s USA Patriot Act, NDAA 2012, HR347, HR658, HR3606 and so many other corporate-backed bills that have taken us down the slippery slope from freedom to fascism and widened the gap between our ruler Haves (the 1%) and serf Have Nots (the 99%), there’s a good chance your Senators and Representative in Washington didn’t read the law before they passed it. There’s a better chance the television talking heads tripping over themselves to tell you what to think about the SCOTUS Obamacare decision didn’t read that either…

…and it’s a sad certainty that the vast majority of the American Sheeple (a) will never look up from their iPhones or away from their Fakebook pages long enough to read either the new “healthcare” rules or the ruling that proclaimed them “Constitutional” and (b) wouldn’t understand all the deliberately obfuscated legalspeak if they did.

So where can Average Joe get the plain and simple truth about the “Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA)” and the Supreme Court’s “NFIB v. Sebelius (11-393)” ruling?

Well according to the “truth in politics” (ugh!) watchdogs at FactCheck.org, he won’t get it from Barack Obama (a.k.a. Odrona the Indefinite Detainer), and he won’t get it from Mitt Romney (a.k.a. the Godfather of Obamacare)…

‘With the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act on June 28, voters are guaranteed to continue hearing the same old false claims about the law from politicians. And President Barack Obama and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney wasted little time in taking to the airwaves to rehash plenty we’ve fact-checked before. Obama even threw in a few new claims.

  • Obama reiterated his “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” refrain, despite the fact that at least a few million workers won’t keep their employer-sponsored plans, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
  • The president also exaggerated the benefits of the law, such as the number of young adults who were able to join their parents’ plans, thanks to the law, and the number of individuals who will receive rebates issued by insurance companies that didn’t spend enough premium dollars on health care.
  • Romney repeated a number of distortions, saying that the law would “cut Medicare” by $500 billion and that it “adds trillions to our deficits.” That’s a reduction in the future growth of Medicare spending over 10 years. And CBO says the law would reduce the deficit.
  • Romney said the law is a “job-killer.” But CBO says the law would have a “small” impact on jobs, mainly affecting the amount of labor workers choose to supply. Those getting subsidies, for instance, might work less hours since they’re paying less for health care.
  • Romney claimed the law “puts the federal government between you and your doctor.” The law would set minimum benefits packages, but medical services will not be government-run, nor does the law allow for rationing of care.’

http://factcheck.org/2012/06/romney-obama-uphold-health-care-falsehoods/

Average Joe won’t get the plain and simple truth about what the SCOTUS Obamacare decision really means from Congress, from TV coverage, or from the corporate-sponsored political puppets representing either side of the “Two-Party Tyranny” the global elite use to keep us divided and fighting each other rather than united and attacking them. Fortunately, however, he can get a glimpse of it here:

“A deeply divided Court held that the individual mandate, which requires that virtually all Americans either obtain health insurance or pay a penalty by 2014, is constitutional… Defending the constitutionality of the mandate, the government’s primary argument was that Congress can require everyone to buy health insurance using its power under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, because the failure to buy insurance shifts the costs of health care for the uninsured to health-care providers, insurance companies, and everyone who does have health insurance. Five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito – all rejected that argument. But the government still won, because a different set of five Justices – the Chief Justice and Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan – agreed that the mandate was constitutional, but for a different reason… Although the Chief Justice rejected the government’s Commerce Clause argument, he agreed with one of the government’s alternative arguments: the mandate imposes a tax on people who do not buy health insurance, and that tax is something that Congress can impose using its constitutional taxing power.”

http://www.scotusblog.com/2012/06/todays-health-care-decision-in-plain-english/

The bottom line is this:

As were “Citizens United v. FEC” (which allows global and even foreign corporations to buy our elections) and “AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion” (which makes consumer class actions against corporations infinitely more difficult), the SCOTUS “NFIB v. Sebelius” decision is a BIG WIN for corporations in general and health care and insurance companies in particular. Contrary to the claims of clueless Obamapologists from coast to coast, neither Obamacare nor this ruling “paves the way to Universal Healthcare Coverage”. Instead, they set the precedent for more individual mandates by which the corporations which control our politicians and through them our government can order us to order their products.

Many American Bikers Suffer From Sensenbrenner Syndrome. Do You?

Sensenbrenner

How can Bikers be “against totalitarian enactments” yet align themselves with the fascist “1%er” stooge who sponsored the most totalitarian act in U.S. history?

MANY AMERICAN BIKERS SUFFER FROM SENSENBRENNER SYNDROME. DO YOU?

Wisconsin’s 9th Congressional District morphed into its 5th in 2003, but since 1979 and for almost a quarter century that district has been represented in Washington DC by the same silver spoon politician: United States Congressman F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. This district is the home of almost 700,000 of Wisconsin’s wealthiest residents and two of Harley-Davidson’s primary motorcycle manufacturing facilities – H-D Powertrain Operations in Menomonee Falls, and the H-D Product Development Center in Wauwatosa.

Many Harley riders (including myself) and other Bikers like to think of themselves as defiant examples of personal independence and liberty, and refer to each other as “freedom fighters”. There are many so-called motorcyclists’ rights organizations (MROs) to exploit that, among them being the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM), A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments (ABATE), and the US Defenders. Here are some representative mission statements:

“The mission of the American Motorcyclist Association is to promote the motorcycling lifestyle and protect the future of motorcycling.”

http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com

“To continue developing an aggressive, independent national advocate for the advancement of motorcycling and its associated lifestyle which is financially stable and exceeds the needs of motorcycling enthusiasts.”

http://mrf.org

“ABATE of Wisconsin’s goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety, and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.”

http://tinyurl.com/ABATEMRO

In addition to a common membership base and political message, these MROs also share an affinity for Congressman Sensenbrenner, who due to his portly stature is known to some as “Fat Jim”. Here are a couple of their accolades:

“The AMA thanks [Sensenbrenner et al] for protecting the motorcycle lifestyle, and encourages motorcyclists in these representative’s districts to thank them for their support…”

http://tinyurl.com/76ez5sw

“Sensenbrenner has redefined what it means to go ‘above and beyond’. He has worked tirelessly to protect motorcyclists’ rights on every front at the federal level for over 35 years. ‘Not only are the motorcyclists of Wisconsin in Mr. Sensenbrenner’s debt, every motorcyclist in this country has benefitted from his steadfast support,’ said Jeff Hennie, MRF Vice President Government Relations and Public Affairs.”


http://tinyurl.com/7v53dyz

So despite the fact the he was an heir to the Kimberly Clark (Kotex) family fortune and born one-percenter – in Occupy Wall Street, not Hells Angels, terms – it certainly sounds like Fat Jim is a champion of democracy and a true defender of the freedoms and liberties cherished so dearly by our two-wheeled cowboys from coast to coast, right?

WRONG.

Jim Sensenbrenner sponsored the USA PATRIOT Act (HR3162). Let me repeat that for any leather-covered sons of liberty whose jaws just dropped or eyes glazed over. JIM SENSENBRENNER SPONSORED THE USA PATRIOT ACT:

http://tinyurl.com/3l4z2n4

That’s right, all you riders for justice. The man your MRO leaders claim has been protecting your “rights on every front at the federal level for over 35 years” has actually been decimating them for much of that time. The Patriot Act he sponsored did more damage to what was once your Constitutionally-guaranteed Bill of Rights than any other bill ever signed into law, and he didn’t stop there. He also sponsored the REAL ID Act (HR418) – which turns your state-issued drivers license into a nationwide “homeland security” identity and tracking device – and has been behind a number of other corporate-sponsored Big Brother affronts to personal freedoms, civil liberties and even Internet privacy:

http://tinyurl.com/3qdv4

So this chubby, lobby-funded frequent-flying fascist (labeled the little “dictator” by Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi) is who American motorcyclists expect to champion their rights in Washington, huh?

http://tinyurl.com/2g2lar

God help them. They must be suffering from Sensenbrenner Syndrome. No, not this one:

http://tinyurl.com/6oyy2mm

The Sensenbrenner Syndrome I refer to is defined crudely as “befriending those who be f*#king you”. This disease has clearly afflicted a large number of Wild Hogs, and that’s sad. What’s worse is that the epidemic doesn’t end there:

How many fiscal conservatives voted for Bush Era Republicans while they were running up record deficits and wrecking our economy with unsustainable tax cuts and reckless deregulation? How many Koched-up Tea Party Patriots support those very same long-tenured corporate puppets today? And how many anti-war progressives that voted for “Change” in 2008 are willing to admit that their drone-happy Democratic President Bushbamney has expanded rather than shrunk the American War Machine overseas while doing nothing for the people back home than might alienate his Wall Street masters?

Like Judge Napolitano, I ask: Where are the Jeffersonians? And where is the outrage?

Balochistan: Next Stop In Corporate Fascist Amerika’s War-For-Profit Tour?

Baluchistan | Balochistan

Are the human rights issues raised over Baluchistan real or just another ruse and excuse for the U.S. to invade a former ally and install a puppet government?

BALOCHISTAN: NEXT STOP IN CORPORATE FASCIST AMERIKA’S WAR-FOR-PROFIT TOUR?

Having failed to strike a deal on NATO supply routes through Pakistan largely due to the killing of thousands of innocent civilians by Bushbamney-approved American military/CIA drone strikes, in violation of international law the United States has within the last week moved its nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise into Pakistani territorial waters within 70 nautical miles of the city of Gawadar in Balochistan.

http://tinyurl.com/7tp45fp

Modern maps show Balochistan (or Baluchistan) as a province of Pakistan. But historically, ethnically and tribally the “Land of the Baloch” is a mountainous region in the Iranian plateau of Southwest Asia that includes portions of the sovereign territories of not only Pakistan but also Afghanistan and Iran.

http://tinyurl.com/7a5pudk

Consequently, increasing American covert “intelligence” operations and overt military presence in this region is the geopolitical equivalent of playing with fire in a match factory. And that may be exactly what the Wall Street-controlled Washington War Machine intends to do…

There is already an ongoing conflict between Baloch “separatists” and the Pakistani government, with both sides accusing the other of human rights violations or other crimes and injustices. So-called “militants” from the Persian portion of the region have also clashed with the Iranian government. And Baloch “insurgent groups” are reportedly operating in southern Afghanistan as well. According to Wikipedia:

“Pakistan has repeatedly accused India, and occasionally the U.S., of supporting the Baluch rebels in order to destabilise the country. Both countries have denied the charge. Iran has accused America of supporting Jundallah for years. America has denied the charge.”

http://tinyurl.com/29tdfy2

But now, according one source “…the United States is coming out of the closet in favor of the dissection of Pakistan. Nothing could be more clear – all of the ‘conspiracy theories’ about US/India meddling in Balochistan are true. Pakistan is on a countdown to invasion.”

http://tinyurl.com/87fbruc

Another source suggests the U.S. strategy may be to help Balochistan gain its “independence” then install a puppet government to give America’s war profiteers the routes and resources they seek in the region: “Most [exiled] Baloch leaders, including Geneva-based Sardar Brahumdagh Bugti of the Baloch Republican Party, are miffed why the U.S. is talking to Pakistan on these routes instead of the Baloch.”

http://tinyurl.com/73wpyuc

Next steps for Balochistan (Baluchistan) will be important topics on the agenda of this two-day seminar in Crystal City VA sponsored by the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and scheduled for this week:

Pakistan Symposium: 2014 and Beyond Draft Agenda

  • “What will be the the role of economic and social development in the FATA/Baluchistan?”
  • “What will be the effect of regional dynamics on the FATA and Baluchistan?”
  • “What will be the impact of demographics and population movements within the FATA, Baluchistan, and the areas immediately surrounding these two regions?”

http://tinyurl.com/6psr3rq

Our research shows the panel members for this symposium include Baloch separatists, activists and sympathizers – but no one representing the government of Pakistan. How do you think the government of America would react if the government of Russia staged a seminar where they laid out plans for the future of an “independent” Iowa? Here’s James Corbett’s take on the big picture for Balochistan (Baluchistan):

“Exactly as in Sudan, Libya, Uganda and other flavours-of-the-week in the great game that has defined global geopolitics for decades, however, this newfound attention on Baluchistan has very little to do with grievances about the plight of the long-suffering locals and much more to do with the region’s vast, untapped mineral and resource wealth, its geostrategic location on a proposed pipeline route that threatens to undermine Western influence in the region, and its role as a base of operations for terror groups that Mossad and the CIA have been using to wage a proxy terror campaign on Iran.”
