An Obama Nation: 74% Of Small Businesses Will Fire Workers, Cut Hours Under Obamacare

07/16/2013 4 comments

If writers of the not-so-affordable “Affordable Care Act” were unable to see this coming, then the Earls of Myopia had no business writing it in the first place …

BY PAUL BEDARD, Washington Examiner – “Despite the administration’s controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

‘Small businesses expect the requirement to negatively impact their employees. Twenty-seven percent say they will cut hours to reduce full time employees, 24 percent will reduce hiring, and 23 percent plan to replace full time employees with part-time workers to avoid triggering the mandate,’ said the Chamber business survey provided to Secrets.

Under Obamacare, just 30 hours — not the nationally recognized 40 hours — is considered full-time. Companies with 50 full-time workers or more are required to provide health care, or pay a fine.

The administration recently decided to wait a year before businesses had to comply, but many are trying to get ready anyway. The president did not delay the mandate that Americans must have health insurance or pay a fine, however.

The Chamber’s second quarter small business survey found that just 30 percent are ready for the law and even understand what is required.

Dealing with Obamacare is the biggest worry of small businesses and comes as they continue to see a sluggish economy which has already put a brake on their hiring. Just 17 percent reported adding employees in the past two years. And only one-in-five small business owners believe that they will add employees in the next two years.” Read more.

The Dumbing Down Of America: A Police State That Terrorizes Its Citizens In The Name Of Protecting Them From Terror

06/12/2013 Leave a comment

And the latest phase in the “dumbing down of America” is the self-dispensing byproduct of the “bowing down of America” that myopic, politically-correct law makers and law enforcement officials have been engaging in for years, a bow that always seems to be in one specific direction …

Revelation 18:3a, “For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her …”

By Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag – “Investigative work is built on selective mistrust. The difference between a state in which there are police and a police state is the scope of that mistrust. A state in which there are police will pursue criminals by using investigative techniques to profile suspects while a police state criminalizes everyone by treating the entire population of the country like suspects.

Some police states are smart, calculated power grabs. Others are dumb defaults.  A smart police state suspects everyone because it’s a tyranny. A dumb police state is run by people who can’t or won’t narrow down the suspect list so that they are forced to suspect everyone.

The United States has been on the road to becoming a dumb police state for a while now. It’s not dumb because its law enforcement officers and military commanders are stupid. They are actually some of the best in the world. It’s a dumb police state because fear of bigotry makes selective mistrust impossible.

The problem hit home for most people when the TSA began strip searching small children and amputees who were a long way from the typical profile of a Saudi male in his twenties or thirties likely to hijack a plane and fly it into a skyscraper.

This didn’t happen because the TSA was run by idiots. That might still be the case, but the TSA was only doing exactly what all American law enforcement had been doing ever since the seventies. It was choosing universal mistrust over selective mistrust. It suspected everyone to avoid singling anyone out. Unfortunately the entire job of airline security depends on intelligently singling out likely suspects, rather than randomly terrorizing passengers in the name of protecting them from terrorists.

Pandering to Islam is just the latest phase in the dumbing down of law enforcement that began when civil liberties activists made it nearly impossible for police to do their jobs…

America and Europe are stuck with dumb police states in the War on Terror because anything else would undermine the illusion on which multiculturalism depends. It is why FBI training materials had to be purged of references to Islamic terrorism and why after the Woolwich attack, the London police prioritized arresting Brits who said offensive things on Twitter. Any idea that undermines multiculturalism is more dangerous than the actual terror that takes lives…

The dumb police state can illogically mistrust everyone, but it can’t logically mistrust anyone, unless he’s a white male who is representative of the majority population. And so it’s stuck in a state of universal paranoia. It mistrusts everyone, rather than mistrust anyone. It randomly harasses people for no reason to avoid harassing those people who deserve it with good reason.

In the age of terror, the compromises of the dumb police state are wearing down everyone and endangering entire countries.” Read more.

The Ghost Of Columbia University: Barack Obama Never Attended Columbia, Says ‘His’ Graduating Class

06/04/2013 4 comments

What else is Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, lying about? …

By Wayne Allyn Root, The Free Patriot – “I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual- he wasn’t there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.

I’m certainly no ‘Johnny come lately.’ For five years now (since 2007 when it became clear Barack Obama was running for President), I’ve been quoted in the media as saying that no one I’ve ever met at Columbia can remember ever meeting, or even seeing, our college classmate Barack Obama. Don’t you think the media should be asking questions? Isn’t this a very strange story?

I am a graduate of Columbia University, Class of 1983. That’s the same class Barack Obama claims to have graduated from. We shared the same exact major- Political Science. We were both Pre Law. It was a small class- about 700 students. The Political Science department was even smaller and closer-knit (maybe 150 students). I thought I knew, or met at least once, (or certainly saw in classes) every fellow Poly Sci classmate in my four years at Columbia.

But not Obama. No one ever met him. Even worse, no one even remembers seeing that unique memorable face. Think about this for a minute. Our classmate is President of the United States. Shouldn’t someone remember him? Or at least claim to remember him?

One of the speakers at the 30th reunion should have reminisced about ‘my days with the future President.’ But no one did. You’d think Obama might have sent a video to tell us all how much he enjoyed his time at Columbia. You’d think he’d have sent at least a letter to be read aloud from one of his former college buddies. Right? But he didn’t. Because Obama has no former college buddies. No one that ever met Obama, let alone befriended him, was in attendence at our 30th class reunion.” Read more.

One Nation Under Siege: Pentagon Confirms It May Court Martial American Soldiers Who Share Their Christian Faith

05/01/2013 7 comments

Classifying evangelical Christianity and Catholics as extremists isn’t enough. Tip of the hat to otcaaron for the link …

By Ken Klukowski, Breitbart – “The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: ‘Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…’.

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of ‘treason,’ and of committing an act of ‘spiritual rape’ as serious a crime as ‘sexual assault.’ He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are ‘enemies of the Constitution.’)

Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.

So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.

This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not allow chaplains (or any service members, for that matter), to say anything about their faith that others say led them to think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life. It’s difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.

In response to the Pentagon’s plans, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC), said Read more…

An Obama Nation: Colorado Undersheriff Warns That State Police, Homeland Security Will Soon Target Christians

04/09/2013 3 comments

Tip of the hat to Kurt J. for the link. More idiocy from the lobotomized left may soon begin encroaching upon the freedom of Christians in the nation formerly known as the Land of the Free. If the article below is any indication, believing in the Bible may soon mean you’ll find yourself under the watchful eye of state and federal law enforcement due to the false premiss that Christians are inherently racist and believe they are above the law of the land, posing any number of threats for Homeland Security as a result. It would seem that the great thinkers in law enforcement have apparently not heard of the Qur’an and the supremacist ideology known as Islam

1 Peter 2:13-15, “For the Lord’s sake, respect all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed… It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.”

Islamic Scholar Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi: “Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it. Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.” (Source).

By Joe Newby, Examiner – “According to a letter written by Ron Trowbridge, undersheriff with the Prowers County, Colo., Sheriff’s Office, Christians who believe the Bible is the literal word of God and others who do not agree with the changes taking place in America could find themselves under scrutiny by law enforcement authorities and Homeland Security, Steven H. Ahle wrote at Red Statements Friday.

Trowbridge, a law enforcement officer with many years of experience, told Ahle that he recently attended a training session in La Junta, Colo., where, he says, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Joe Kluczynski gave a 2-hour presentation on the ‘sovereign citizen’ movement.

‘Kluczynski spent most of his two hours focusing on how, in his view and apparently the view of Homeland Security, people turn to the sovereign citizen movement,’ he wrote.

According to the FBI, the ‘sovereign citizen movement’ is made up of ‘anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or ‘sovereign’ from the United States.’

These people, the FBI says, do not believe they have to answer to any government authority and can cause a number of problems for law enforcement authorities.

But according to Trowbridge’s letter, Kluczynski went much further, including ‘those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and ‘fundamentalists’.’

‘Kluczynski did not explain what he meant by ‘fundamentalists’ but from the context it was clear he was referring again to those who took the Bible literally or ‘too seriously,” he added.

These people, Kluczynski reportedly said, have a right to their beliefs, but needed to be monitored by law enforcement authorities.

Trowbridge said that according to Kluczynski, these individuals and groups are ‘dangerous’ because they are ‘angry over the election of a black president.’

When an attendee suggested the economy was probably more to blame, Kluczynski “intimated that those who are not going along with the changes in America will need to be controlled by law enforcement,’ Trowbridge added.” Read more.

US Military Groups Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism, Islamophobia As Forms Of ‘Religious Extremism’ Alongside Islamic Terrorism – “The U.S. Army listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned. ‘We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,’ said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. ‘It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.’” Read more.

An Obama Nation: President Obama To Nominate Sharia Law Supporter, Illegal Immigrant Advocate As Labor Secretary

Thomas Perez (Right)

By Matthew Vadum, American Thinker – “President Obama reportedly intends to nominate in-your-face radical leftist lawyer Thomas Perez as his next Secretary of Labor.

Now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, Perez is a former top aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and possibly a perjurer.

Perez led the Obama administration’s assault on voter ID laws last year.  As John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky report in Who’s Counting, as a member of the Montgomery County, Md., Council in 2003 he also tried to force governments to accept fraud-prone matricula consular ID cards issued by Mexican consular offices.  He was a board member of Casa de Maryland, an advocacy group for illegal aliens funded by George Soros and the recently deceased Hugo Chavez.

Perez is apparently in favor of Saudi-style anti-blasphemy laws.  In Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries offenders can be condemned to death merely for insulting Islam.

Amazingly, at a congressional hearing last year, Perez pointedly declined to rule out bringing such laws to the United States.  At the July 27, 2012, meeting of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the Constitution, Perez refused to say whether he would uphold the religious speech protections in the First Amendment in the future.

‘Will you tell us … that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?’ Congressman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) asked four times to no avail.

Perez, like so many Obama administration officials, believes that America is a seething hotbed of ‘Islamophobia,’ filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the Muslim religion.  He has worked with hardcore Islamist groups such as the terrorist-linked Islamic Society of North America and applauded Islamists for lobbying against airline security measures.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: The Voter Fraud That ‘Never Happens’ Keeps Coming Back

02/08/2013 1 comment

By John Fund, National Review Online – “Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: ‘A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.’

Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

This is how Channel 9′s website summarized the case:

According to county documents, Richardson’s absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.

“There’s absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,” said Richardson. . . .

The board’s documents also state that Richardson was allegedly disruptive and hid things from other poll workers on Election Day after another female worker reported she was intimidated by Richardson. . . .

During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.

Richardson insists she has done nothing wrong and promises to contest the charges: ‘I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.’

But, of course, as you know there is no voter fraud. Pay no attention to that lightning coming out of Ohio.” Source – National Review Online.

Flashback: Ohio Vote Totals For Barack Obama A Statistical Miracle – “In 2012, 106,258 people in Wood County are registered to vote out of an eligible 98,213. This is not to say that the 108% registered all voted for Obama, just that more people are registered than eligible. Perhaps even more astonishing is FPM reports that he won 100% of the vote in 21 precincts in Cleveland. Think about that… Ohio voters had 7 presidential candidates to choose from, plus the option to write in candidates of their choosing, yet every last voter in 21 districts chose Obama.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Seven Million Will Lose Medical Insurance Under Obama Health Law

02/05/2013 2 comments

By Stephen Dinan, The Washington Times – “President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

CBO said that this year’s tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they’ll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.

But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt.

Overall, the new health provisions are expected to cost the government $1.165 trillion over the next decade — the same as last year’s projection.” Read more.

It appears the same is just as true for the biggest pillar of support for the Obama administration: America’s labor unions … the same labor unions who enthusiastically supported the primary accomplishment of the Obama administration in the past 4 years, Obamacare, only to realize, long after it has become reality that, surprise, their healthcare plan costs are about to go up.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Southwestern Pennsylvania Hospital To Stop Delivering Babies Because Of Obamacare

01/17/2013 Leave a comment

AP, Fox News – “Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March — blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.

The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

In a lengthy statement posted to its website Wednesday, the hospital cited several reasons for the decision — including a claim that the population of women of child-bearing age is dropping and that the number of births the hospital would be called upon to perform isn’t enough for it to provide the service in the face of lower reimbursements under the federal Affordable Care Act.

Citing remarks made by Chairman of the Board, the Honorable David C. Klementik, the statement said, ‘…It was a difficult decision, but coupled with the recent and potential future changes in WMC OB providers, industry trends and market analysis, the board concluded that the timeliness and cost of recruiting a new team of obstetricians may not be feasible and therefore, may not serve in the hospital’s or community’s best interest.'” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Medical Companies Brace For ‘Devastating’ ObamaCare Tax, Prepare For Layoffs

12/14/2012 Leave a comment

“This is going to hurt.”

By Judson Berger, FOX News – “Andre DiMino has been running medical device company ADM Tronics since his father, who founded the decades-old firm, died in 2001. He’s never laid off anybody.

‘These people are like family with us,’ he said.

The boss might not be able to hold out much longer. Come Jan. 1, an ObamaCare-tied tax specific to his industry is expected to go into effect. Though the Obama administration has downplayed the impact, DiMino calls it ‘devastating.’

‘I think after all of these decades of not laying people off, I think we may have to face that,’ DiMino told FoxNews.com. He predicted he might have to immediately lay off three people in his manufacturing division and possibly more after that.

DiMino, whose Bergen County, N.J., business currently employs 20 workers, is one of hundreds of CEOs across the country clamoring for Washington’s attention, urging lawmakers to kill the tax before it kills jobs.

In just the last few days, the intense lobbying push elicited some measure of response. On Monday, 18 Democratic senators and senators-elect asked Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to delay the tax, citing the business impact. They noted the industry employs more than 400,000 people, and is dealing with ‘significant uncertainty and confusion.’

Many in the industry, though, have been clear-eyed about what the tax means — preemptive layoffs and significant cutbacks in research and development.

While DiMino is waiting for next year to see if he’ll need to fire workers, over at Uresil, LLC, in Skokie, Ill., the layoffs have already started.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Another CEO Warns Obamacare Will Be ‘Very Costly’ For Businesses, ‘They’ll Be In For A Very Expensive Situation’

12/03/2012 Leave a comment

And more businesses, in an effort to remain competitive and profitable, will likely do what a large number of businesses are already doing right now instead of passing the cost on to the customer: reducing employee work hours to under 30-hours per week to avoid Obamacare altogether …

https://i1.wp.com/newsbusters.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/main_375/main_photos/2012/December/2012-12-03-CBS-CTM-Rose.jpgBy Matthew Balan, NewsBusters – “On Monday’s CBS This Morning, Cheesecake Factory CEO David Overton spotlighted the looming economic impact of Obamacare’s implementation, especially on small enterprises: ‘For those businesses that don’t cover their employees, they’ll be in for a very expensive situation.’ Overton also warned that the cost of the law would be passed on to customers.

Anchor Norah O’Donnell raised the issue of the still-controversial health care law: ‘One of the things that’s going to change, of course, in the new year is ObamaCare, or the Affordable Care Act. How do you implement that at Cheesecake Factory, and how will you pay for health care for all of your employees?’ (audio clips available here …)

The restaurant chain executive pointed out that, unlike many businesses, The Cheesecake Factory is ‘already…paying a great deal in health care. So, we’re not sure how much more it will be – or how much less – or what exactly we’ll do. So, for us, it won’t be as bad as it will be for others, which it will be very costly.’

O’Donnell followed up by asking about the possibility increased prices for customers: ‘When you say it will be very costly, it will be passed on to who – the customers?‘ Overton confirmed that this would be the case: ‘Well, I believe most people will have to do that or cheapen their product.’

It’s surprising that the liberal morning newscast would bring on a critic of ObamaCare. The decision could be explained by anchor Charlie Rose mentioning ex-Al Gore adviser Dr. Atul Gawande’s compliment of The Cheesecake Factory in a recent article in The New Yorker.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Florida Professor Says Obama An ‘Apostle’ Sent To Create ‘Heaven Here On Earth’

11/27/2012 7 comments

Isaiah 2:11-12, “The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts [shall be] upon every [one that is] proud and lofty, and upon every [one that is] lifted up; and he shall be brought low”

The Examiner – “According to a book written by longtime Florida A&M University professor Barbara A. Thompson, Barack Obama is no mere mortal. He is, as she wrote, ‘Apostle Barack,’ sent to create a ‘heaven here on earth,’ a post at PJ Tatler said Monday.

In her book, ‘The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as ‘Heaven Here on Earth,” Professor Thompson says she was given this message in her dreams.

‘Yes, Barack had worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, especially those who elected him in 2008. His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term, so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or heaven here on earth,” the book description at Amazon says.

‘Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor,’ she added.

“Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of ‘heaven here on earth’ for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a ‘heaven here on earth.’ For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized,’ Thompson wrote.

‘Pity her poor students who are going into hock to attend her classes. Now I fear even more for the future of our nation if this is the kind of manure students are hearing from their professors,’ PJ Tatler said.

This is not the first time liberals have attempted to deify Barack Obama. In November 2010, Newsweek magazine dubbed him ‘god of all things‘ while using a pose reminiscent of a Hindu deity.

A few months after he was first inaugurated, Newsweek’s Evan Thomas elevated him to the status of a deity.” Read more.
