Obamacare \”Essential Benefits\” Rendered Most Current Health Plans Obsolete
By Alan Joel Full Story
The great bait-and-switch of ObamaCare (“you can keep your plan and your doctor”) was intentionally orchestrated by the architects of the legislation.
There were thousands of policies offered nationwide that were good and even very good but now they can’t be sustained under the new Obamacare policy requirements.

To prove the great conspiracy, Stanton relied on his crony, Judge Advocate General Holt, and on his creature, General Lafayette Baker. The latter bustled off to Canada where he collected the most preposterous herd of witnesses ever for a political trial…Meanwhile Judge Holt ran a school for perjury in Washington.”

Ted Cruz wants to be president more than anything; I think that\’s obvious to most.

None of the $100 million from the public purse or the $15 million judicial inquiry called by then mayoral candidate Councillor David Miller into the MFP scandal was ever recovered—and to this day, no one has ever been brought to justice.Miller did go on to be Toronto mayor for two terms.

Look out Americans! Obama may be giving the Canadian company behind healthcare.gov’s glitch-ridden website a pass for reasons other than you may think. CGI is famous in the U.S. as ObamaCare website builders, and infamous in Canada as the company that built the $2.7 billion plus busted gun registry.
Make that the $2.7 billion plus Canadian LIBERAL Government gun registry for which the Canadian taxpayer is still paying through the nose some 20 years later.
President Barack Obama who threw temper tantrums in getting his way on last week’s government shutdown, is curiously calm when it comes to a $292-plus million website that’s still bogged down by a potential 5 million lines of bad code.
Could it be that the website that doesn’t work is a diversion for something else Obama doesn’t want people thinking about, like a computer driven gun registry?
In 1993, the Liberals passed Bill C-68 (the Firearms Act). Over half of all registered handguns in Canada were prohibited without any evidence provided that these handguns had been misused. Almost overnight, owning a firearm, an ordinary rifle or shotgun in The Land of the Maple Leaf became a criminal offence for those not holding a valid licence.
The CGI Canadian Firearms Information System (CFIS) brought on stream by the Prime Minister Jean Chrétien-led Liberal government was so wrought by delays and cost overruns that it came to the attention of Canada’s Auditor-General Sheila Fraser.
In 2002, the auditor-general revealed that the Liberal created Firearms Centre had grown out of control. (Gary Mauser, Special to the National Post, Dec. 11, 2012).
“Despite political promises that the program would not cost over $2-million, costs were expected to exceed $1-billion by 2005. By 2012, this had ballooned to $2.7-billion. The auditor-general uncovered irregularities including mismanagement and corruption. Her findings stimulated a parliamentary revolt. In 2003, Parliament imposed an annual spending cap. The auditors’ reports led to RCMP investigations of Liberal insiders and contributed to the fall of the Liberal government in 2006.”
Did the U.S. Democrats, who make the protection of women and children the main motive for gun control copycat corrupt Canadian Liberal politicians?…………………………………..

Of course, Rubio is now showing his true colors in his mad dash to legalize illegal immigration and help millions of illegal aliens become democrat voters, making him one of the biggest political turncoats in recent history.
Failing the biggest test of all, Rubio refused to disqualify himself for president and vice president and hold Obama accountable for his massive identification fraud. Cruz is on track to make the same mistake, telling FOX RNC shill Sean Hannity that he is a Natural Born Citizen because his mother was a citizen of both the United States and Canada.

As America grew in the 1800s from a republic of a few millions, whose frontier stopped at the Mississippi, into a world power, there were constant collisions with the world’s greatest empire.
In 1812, we declared war on Britain, tried to invade Canada and got our Capitol burned. In 1818, Andrew Jackson, on an expedition into Spanish Florida to put down renegade Indians harassing Georgia, hanged two British subjects he had captured, creating a firestorm in Britain.
In 1838, we came close to war over Canada’s border with Maine; in 1846, over Canada’s border with the Oregon Territory.
After the Civil War, Fenians conducted forays into Canada to start a U.S.-British battle that might bring Ireland’s independence. In 1895, we clashed over the border between Venezuela and British Guiana.
(EXCERPT!) ~ PROPOSED SALES TAX ON INTERNET PURCHASES IS JUST ANOTHER INCOME TAX ON RETAIL SELLERS – EDRIVERA.COM : EDRIVERA.COM
The idea behind the Marketplace Fairness Act is that it levels the competitive sales field between brick and mortar merchants and Internet sales operators. The truth is it just provides more illicit tax revenue to incompetent State governments.
The American people freed themselves from the tyrant King George III and nothing short of a coronation of a new monarch can re-impose monarchical power upon them. This being a free country the people are free to enslave themselves individually or collectively. A sales tax is a government charge on the privilege of selling at retail. It is a tax on the retailer indirectly paid by the consumer in the cost of goods purchased.

Articles: Cruz, Haley, Jindal, Rubio: Flight 2016 Cleared for Takeoff… “Attempts To Change POTUS eligibility requirements For Hillary, Arnold, obama, etc.”
So we think the silly season in presidential politics should be closed down, early. We believe that Cruz, Haley, Jindal, and Rubio are all eligible to serve as president. Now, this is not the same thing as endorsing any one of them. But, it’s a safe bet than any one of these worthies is capable of being a better president than the one we now have.
If conservatives want to be a majority of the electorate, we need to welcome, not put off, immigrants and children of immigrants. Any other stance will result in our “self-deporting” ourselves as conservatives — from the White House.
Consider this historical question: Could it have been the original intent of the Founders to disqualify themselves from serving as president? It was not until Martin Van Buren, eighth president, that we elected a man who had been born an American citizen. There was actually some silly maneuvering around the accession of Chester Alan Arthur in 1881. Some misguided folks then tried to argue that young Chet had been born in Canada and smuggled across the border into Vermont as an infant.

When Hannity keeps it going Cruz says he was born of an American mother avoiding place of birth. Hannity brings up the Canadian birth. Cruz says he had American citizenship at birth because of his mother.
…..Makow Note: According to the late Alan Stang’s courageous book ,”Not Holier Than Thou: How Queer is Bush?” (2007) homosexuals play a huge part of the Illuminati Jewish subversion of Western society.
Stang speculates that Bush was a homosexual and demonstrated that, despite his Christian family pretensions, he advanced the homo-sexualization of America and gave “organized sodomy considerable control over the federal government.” (66)
Stang documents that a well-known male prostitute, Jeff Gannon, made dozens of visits to the Bush White House in 2003 and 2004 often staying over night.

Canadian Citizenship of Terrorists Should be Revoked
Arthur Weinreb Full Story
Last week, Jason Kenney, Canada’s Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, floated the idea of legislation to strip Canadians who commit terrorist acts of their citizenship.
The idea came after the government of Bulgaria said a citizen of Canada was involved in an attack on a tourist bus filled with Israelis last summer. The attack has been attributed to Hezbollah.
He used to be known as Uncle Sam—a tall, grandfatherly, if a little stern, gentleman dressed in red, white and blue. He was patriotic, straight laced, and distinguished. He taught us to say the pledge of allegiance, he asked us to help—whether it was “I want you to buy bonds,” or “I want you to serve in the Army,” and he even exhorted us to “ask not what the country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Brooke County, WV – A McDonald’s restaurant earned a fair share of controversy Wednesday when an American flag was shown to he hanging upside down early in the morning, thought initially to be a protest of the results of the 2012 election.
Many wondered whether or not the McDonald’s upside-down flag was a deliberate political message. Turns out, the upside-down flag wasn’t intentional disrespect, but rather a timely, accidental coincidence.
A local reporter for NEWS9 had called the McDonald’s restaurant earlier Wednesday to ask why the flag was flown upside-down, usually taken as a sign of distress. Reportedly, the employee who answered the phone said that the flag was flown that way on purpose.
Later, a person identifying herself as a manager of that particular McDonald’s called to clarify her employee’s comments.

According to The Washington Post, the Obama administration is considering a “national database” of all firearms in the United States to “track the movement and sale of weapons.” If such a database comes to fruition the database will lead to confiscation.
Last year Canada ended its national long gun registry, a national database of every rifle and shotgun in the country that was supposed to help police track the movement of and sale of weapons. When it was introduced twenty years ago critics said the registration of firearms would eventually lead to confiscation, a criticism dismissed as ridiculous, yet that’s what happened and more right up until its dismantling.
As recently as last winter law abiding gun owners who had complied with the registry were having their rifles confiscated. In late 2011 hundreds if not thousands of people who had legally purchased the Armi Jager AP80, a .22 calibre variant of the AK47, were informed that their rifles had been deemed illegal and must be surrendered .

Four more years of Obama has left America in a massive depression with We the People feeling there is nothing left but to give up.
But giving up is never the answer when the way to free America, and in fact citizens of the world from Obama, is to petition Canada—the nation that started it all—to dismantle the United Nations. Dismantling the United Nations is an end-around, out-of-the-box type of tactic that we have yet see anyone consider, yet could well be an effective method of neutering threats on multiple levels.
