Senate ObamaCare Bill to give HHS Kathleen Sebelius the power of life and death; Socialism – it isn’t just a concept

The Socialists are availing their “Perfect Opportunity” to inflict as much Socialism on the American People as possible, as fast as they can, before the 71% of Angry American Voters collectively slams the door in their Socialist Faces in 2010 and 2012.

From The Washington Examiner…

HHS would become federal giant under Senate plan

By: Susan Ferrechio
Chief Congressional Correspondent
November 26, 2009

A quick search of the Senate health bill will bring up “secretary” 2,500 times.

That’s because Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would be awarded unprecedented new powers under the proposal, including the authority to decide what medical care should be covered by insurers as well as the terms and conditions of coverage and who should receive it.

“The legislation lists 1,697 times where the secretary of health and humans services is given the authority to create, determine or define things in the bill,” said Devon Herrick, a health care expert at the National Center for Policy Analysis.

For instance, on Page 122 of the 2,079-page bill, the secretary is given the power to establish “the basic per enrollee, per month cost, determined on average actuarial basis, for including coverage under a qualified health care plan.”

The HHS secretary would also have the power to decide where abortion is allowed under a government-run plan, which has drawn opposition from Republicans and some moderate Democrats.

And the bill even empowers the department to establish a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation that would have the authority to make cost-saving cuts without having to get the approval of Congress first.

“It’s a huge amount of power being shifted to HHS, and much of it is highly discretionary,” said Edmund Haislmaier, an expert in health care policy and insurance markets at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Haislmaier said one the greatest powers HHS would gain from the bill is the authority to regulate insurance. States currently hold this power, and under the Senate bill, the federal government would usurp it from them. This could lead to the federal government putting restrictions and changes in place that destabilize the private insurance market by forcing companies to lower premiums and other charges, he said.

“Health and Human Services … doesn’t have any experience with this,” Haislmaier said. “I’m looking at the potential for this whole thing to just blow up on people because they have no idea what they are doing. Who in the federal government regulates insurance today? Nobody.”

The health care reform legislation would rely on the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force for recommendations as to what kind of screening and preventive care should be covered. Last week, the group, which operates under HHS, drew sharp criticism for advising that mammograms should begin at age 50, a decade later than the current standard.

    Facing Scandal, Head of Climate Research Lab to Temporarily Step Down

  4. Foxwood says:

    Lisa said:
    “You know I’ve been sparring with a couple of whack jobs on You Tube over the meaning of the song Cherokee Nation and those folks totally do not get it IMO…..
    The song is about a Proud people that was treated horribly and murdered, yet survived to pass on their traditions to their children. Yes, many were forced onto the rez, but many also became a part of those that conquered them to unite both races.
    It is NOT ONLY the white man that looses to this Communist take over of our country, but EVERY American in this nation that is at risk of losing everything they hold dear to them.
    Those that keep playing the RACE card, need to understand, no matter the race, we ALL face the same loss should our country fail to those commies in charge. They don’t care about traditions, they are all about dividing us from ourselves and destroying our way of life period.”

    This nation has done a lot of things wrong, but most of the mistakes have been taken care of. Slavery was ended. Native Americans are as free as any other race. We live in (for now) the greatest nation ever on earth, where people from other nations come to live the “American Dream”.

    I have to admit that the HEALTHCARE services that the Native Americans get is piss poor.

    If we go to a Communistic government, Native American HEALTHCARE will NOT change. Everyones HEALTHCARE will be the same as theirs. I guess that might make them happy, but I can’t see how.

    Communism is NOT good for anybody in the nation it takes over. NEVER HAS BEEN!

    The director of the embattled Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in the United Kingdom is stepping down pending an investigation into allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change.

    In a statement posted to its Web site, the University of East Anglia says Phil Jones will relinquish his position until the completion of an independent review into allegations that he worked to alter the way in which global temperature data was presented.

    Professor Jones said, “What is most important is that CRU continues its world leading research with as little interruption and diversion as possible. After a good deal of consideration I have decided that the best way to achieve this is by stepping aside from the Director’s role during the course of the independent review and am grateful to the University for agreeing to this. The Review process will have my full support.”

    Details of the independent review will be releasd in the next few days, according to the statement.

    Matt Dempsey, spokesman for Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., thinks more is still to come from the scandal coming to be known as Climategate. “It certainly shows that there’s more to the investigation and there’s more to come, and we’re only at the beginning stages of learning about climate-gate,” he told FoxNews.com.

    Dempsey added that Inhofe plans to request a hearing on the topic formally from Enivornment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer in a letter later today.

    Jones’s biography page, published on the CRU’s servers, notes his research interest “in instrumental climate change, palæoclimatology, detection of climate change and the extension of riverflow records in the UK using long rainfall records. I am principally known for the time series of hemispheric and global surface temperatures, which I update on a monthly basis. I have numerous research papers over the last 20 years and these are available in the CRU Publications List.”

    The controversy spun from a collection of e-mails stolen from the CRU and leaked onto the Internet. The e-mails were seized upon by some skeptics of man-made climate change as proof that scientists are manipulating the data about its extent. And the trustworthiness of the scientific community’s global warming data pool is being called into question as the scandal over doctored data continues to unfold.

    The loss of the data prevents other scientists from checking it to determine whether, in fact, there has been a long-term rise in global temperatures during the past century and a half.

    “They are making scientific progress more difficult now,” says Willie Soon, a physicist, astronomer and climate researcher at the solar and stellar physics division of the Harvard University-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “This is a shameful, dark day for science,” he said in an interview with FoxNews.com.

    How the Obamahealth scare bill COULD go down as written!!

    Well… it turns out that not only was Maurice Clemmons a now known Racist against Whites… he is also an Islamic Militant who converted to Islam in Prison…

    And his Islamic Terrorist White Hating Friends, the self-called The Black Foot Soldiers is canonizing Maurice Clemmons as their HERO.

    But dont worry… the Department of Homeland Security knows who the real terrorists are… its that 71% of Angry American Voters who are fed the hell up with Congressional Malpractice and White House Malpractice…

    Them Islamic White Hating Bruddaz at BlackMaleFelon be makin a lot of noizz

    Do Not Comment On Their Website… it will be crawling with the FBI and DHS agents.
    the group on that wordpress blog are in the toilet and I dont want anyone here to get spashed with sh!t from that group.

    Sadly Lisa the Native Americans of yesteryear were portrayed back east as Savages and or “Terrorists” to those who knew no better.

    I think Dances with Wolves was the first ever movie to capture the true beauty of the Native Americans we conquered.

    I think it was Politics then as it is now and back then it was the land they wanted to sell for profit. I am sure a good many Corrupt Government Officials got rich by exploiting the Native American Indians.

    DAMN VF!!!
    I read about 10 comments and I feel sick at my stomach!!! That these people are allowed FREE in our country just amazes me…WOW!! And I thought they were rabid on Icry!!…..

  10. LisaInTX says:

    Fox and Sami
    You both are so right on. Much horror and many mistakes were done during the early years of our developing nation.
    That those days changed for the most part, gives clear credit to our founding fathers and the wisdom of most of those that came after.
    Our nation is not perfect, but it is inclusive, where we are endowed by our Creator, with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for all that choose to follow the laws of God and our nation.

  11. samiam60 says:

    Checked out that web-site VF.

    Looks like Arlene has given us a very good picture of what we can be expecting in the near future.

    Because of my location I can say that I have been watching this sentiment brewing now for years.

    It is at Fever Pitch right now.

    Just one spark and BAM

  12. VotingFemale says:

    Sam and Lisa,

    The sh!t they are stirring will not be to their liking…

    Most people, black and white dont want to have anything to do with asshats like that.

    this is yet another attempt at 15 minutes of fame… and it will not be the kind of fame they will enjoy…

    I will not write a blogpost about them… others will though, and that is what they want… I say let them stew in juices of their own making.

    this information I have shared is all way way ahead of the curve.
    the Lame Stream Media will likely be the last ones to pick it up and FOX News, the first.

    This is the cutting edge of the Blogosphere.

  13. Foxwood says:

    Now that’s a lot of hate at that website.

    How many have been murdered now in the last month by Islamics who hate for a living?

    and rest assured the Socialists will also use it as a weapon against the 2nd amendment…

  61. arlenearmy says:

    Lisa
    Obama looked really fucked up in the eyes. I was staring at pureeeeeeeeeeeeee evil.

  62. m2 says:

    I couldn’t watch Obama. I just don’t care what he has to say…

  63. LisaInTX says:

    Foxwood
    I find that ANYTIME I agree with him, I have to question WHY and what he REAL hidden motive is.
    He’s a slick snake-oil salesman for sure!!
    Put aside party politics like we did after 9/11 attacks and unite behind a common cause…yeah right—like a Global cause maybe? A little NWO perhaps?
    Not this American!!

  64. m2 says:

    “Today is World AIDS Day, but we’re missing something… “

    Although former President Bush signed into action the largest American foreign aid program ever, the media has overlooked how he out-did every U.S. president in his commitment to combat AIDS. Under Bush’s program, the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (PEPFAR), over two million lives have been saved; the program has prevented 240,000 babies from becoming infected by the virus through their mothers; and, it has also supported care for nearly 11 million people affected by HIV, including 3.6 million children.

    It seems strangely out of place, that on a day meant to acknowledge those suffering from HIV/AIDS, there has not been a single mention of arguably the largest humanitarian effort ever made on its behalf.

    Regardless of public sentiment towards Bush, his work in assisting Africa and the Caribbean surpasses any previous endeavor, and the accomplishments of his program stand out as a great acheivement in fighting the pandemic. Whether we choose to blame it on our short-term memory or the failure of the media to remind us, an effort that has saved millions of lives and assisted countless more certainly warrants acknowledgment.

  65. LisaInTX says:

    Arlene
    He is an advocate of the devil I have no doubt….talking like he did a few minutes ago is more dangerous than if he remains a radical commie!
    Folks might think he is ‘maturing’ and finally figuring out his job…..I didn’t like it one little bit!

  66. tellitlikeitis says:

    Obama is an insult to all the brave African Americans that fought and died for this country. He is an insult to his race and he is an insult to America.

  67. m2 says:

    What did he say a few minutes ago?
    Was it any different than the usual BLAME the Bush’s and Tea Baggers?

  68. tellitlikeitis says:

    I don’t think he is convincing anyone of anything anymore. He has already played his best hand. The only thing left to do is to kick the dead beat asshole out of the casino. His credit is no good.

    He doesn’t need the losers to pump his ego- like Obama does.

    Arleane retweeted some other Twitter about someone saying Chris Matthews called West Point ‘enemy camp’

  90. arlenearmy says:

    Tellit
    He’s an insult to the male species & the human race.

    When he got on that stage & looked into the camera, I felt a cold chill… His eyes were pure evil. I almost turned my head away.

  91. LisaInTX says:

    M2
    Baraq Ubama…..hahahahah

    Matthews WOULD say that—where’s the love & the thrill up the leg with all those cute cadets running around ?
    Ahh—unrequited love, where fore art thou my love Baraq!! Hahahaaa

  92. tellitlikeitis says:

    Obama is hollow man in and empty suit.

  93. arlenearmy says:

    m2
    Somebody on twitter said Chris Matthews said that Obama was in the enemy camp (re: westpoint cadets). In other words, Obama gave a sour speech.

    Personally, I think he was high.

  94. LisaInTX says:

    Tellit
    Now THAT is what I would call a REAL PIN HEAD!! hahahahaaaa

  95. tellitlikeitis says:

    Could Obama be the antichrist? It’s possible. You can’t rule it out. Anything is possible in todays topsy turvy world where upside down is the norm.

  96. m2 says:

    Yup, it’s so true. Everything is topsy-turvy in the Liberal world of LIES!

  97. tellitlikeitis says:

    Arlene, I agree. Didn’t Obama say he once smoked weed and snorted coke? Old habits die hard.

  98. arlenearmy says:

    M2
    A twitter left this video of what Matthews said regarding the enemy camp

  99. m2 says:

    Arlene, seems every speech since his manufactured “State of the Union” speech after 1 week in office or whatever time of year that was, has been poo-ed on by his worshippers….

    I guess he’s just falling flat all the time.

    I don’t know, but he creeps me out and I just don’t watch it anymore.

  100. tellitlikeitis says:

    Wow! An enemy camp on our own soil. Maybe it’s just these educated young people know bullshit when they hear it and did not show a positive reaction to his teleprompter speech and photo op. I believe that is a more realistic explanation.

  101. arlenearmy says:

    tellit
    I dont think it was weed. Possibly coke, but he was not licking his lips. His eyes was glazed like Summers. Watery looking. And the white of his eyes was veryyyy white.

    And there was no pupils shown. We got 1080p HD. And I analyzed it carefully.

  116. tellitlikeitis says:

    Sam ,I just purchased the new Obama alarm clock. Instead of an alarm It comes on with Obama’s voice saying. “Wake up asshole! You have got to get your big ass out of bed and go to work to pay for all my socialism!” It’s such an inspiring alarm clock. Makes me just want to jump out of bed in the morning. lol

    Just checking in before bed- saw a tweet that he took out the “God Bless our troops” part of his speech.

    Is that true?

    What a coward.
    He can’t even stand up for God and our nation because he’s either so scared of his tiny political base- or he has no spiritual grounds, or understanding of this nation.

  119. LisaInTX says:

    M2
    He did say God Bless America….gave me chills to hear it from his lips—-just wondering whose ‘God’ he wants to bless us with???

  120. arlenearmy says:

    m2
    its true. he never said God bless our troops…. nor did he say ‘God Speed’.

    Obama is the same old Obama who refused to wear flag pin.

    His heart is black & sinister. If we had the ability to hear & see his mind & heart while giving that speech, we probably would had heard him curse our troops.

    That man wants harm to come to us.

    May God protect our troops.

  121. LisaInTX says:

    Damn my big mouth!! Done insulted my son in Iraq!!
    We were NOT seeing eye to eye on the 3 Navy Seals and I told him he was being neutered by the Army into a policeman instead of a soldier!

  122. LisaInTX says:

    Needless to say, he was not happy with my comments…:-/

  123. LisaInTX says:

    Damn—how to make up for that one??? Sami? Arlene? You both have served, was my comment really as bad as it sounds?…..
    I told him it was anger at how our troops were being persecuted by our government for doing their jobs and he said he was there to “keep the Peace”……where as I said what i said….??

  124. LisaInTX says:

    Who the hell is the CIC’s National Security team????

  125. arlenearmy says:

    Lisa
    sometimes in keeping the peace, its necessary to get rough. your comment didn’t sound bad to me. but you know your son better anybody else.

    i don’t think most soldiers like obama. just from looking at the cadets, i’ll bet obama was glad to leave the stage.

  126. LisaInTX says:

    Dang—talking to myself here….so I’ll say good night to myself…lol

  127. arlenearmy says:

    lisa
    also, most soldiers realize that it is their duty to obey…. but when it comes down to who is serving w/them on the ground, the soldier will morelikely side with who is closest to them. And obama is not the one.

    obama is internationally known as a coward.

  128. LisaInTX says:

    Hey Arlene
    He asked me if I had just insulted him

  129. LisaInTX says:

    And I was like WHAT? Then i read what I had written and said NO i was not trying to insult him—just venting over the 3 Seals….

  130. LisaInTX says:

    My son started talking about the Geneva convention and blah—blah—I’m like a busted lip and a punch in the stomach? Give me a break….

  131. LisaInTX says:

    My son said the Nobama WAS the elected president and until it was proven he was not, that he would follow his orders……That didn’t help my frame of mind one bit either!!

  132. LisaInTX says:

    Okay—that helps allot. Thanks Arlene…maybe he isn’t TOO mad at me….

    He also wasn’t impressed by the speech either….

  133. LisaInTX says:

    OMG!! Nobama advocating against Tyranny in the world. That that is what America fights against1! REALLLLLY……..and we that oppose tyranny on our soil are called domestic terrorist, etc……. who would have thought it1!

  134. LisaInTX says:

    And I’m pissed. my hubby got a $2000 bonus this year (1st time EVER) and the gov got $800 of it!!!

    Tax and spend…tax and spend….Mmmm….Mmmm…Mmmmmm

  135. arlenearmy says:

    its not you who insulted him.

    it sounds like you were trying to tell him that obama was doing the insulting.

    sometimes “men” take things the wrong way or “personal”. i think if the remark had be phrased with a “we” instead of in the singular “he” being neutered, he might had took it different.

  136. arlenearmy says:

    Lisa

    There’s a difference between military obedience & slavish loyalty.

    I remember sometime ago, we (several veterans) tried to tell some active duty soldiers to keep up w/there medical records because the VA will mess over them when they get out.

    It was hard to convince them. When they got out of service, they found out how quick Uncle Sam turned his back on them.

    We have seen the VA actually called the cops on a recently discharged vet. They claimed that he was not a vet & accused him of trying to steal medical services. We had to take him back to the VA to convince them that the guy was really a genuine veteran.

    Sometimes the active duty soldiers learn the hard way.

  137. LisaInTX says:

    Arlene
    You make a really valid point. I should have said it in a more ‘general’ framing, and not personally—but I didn’t…now i’m in hot water with him I guess. I send him an email–maybe he will understand what I was really saying by using your words …if not, I can’t help it.
    My dad, if alive, could tell some tales of his own regarding the treatment he got from the VA in Shreveport and in Amarillo.
    And 40% of the country WANT that??? WOW!! What a bunch of clueless wonders!!!

  138. LisaInTX says:

    Well I’m done making out my stack of bills….time for bed now.

    CLIMATE CHANGE ‘FRAUD’

    THE scientific consensus that mankind has caused climate change was rocked yesterday as a leading academic called it a “load of hot air underpinned by fraud”.

    Professor Ian Plimer condemned the climate change lobby as “climate comrades” keeping the “gravy train” going.

    In a controversial talk just days before the start of a climate summit attended by world leaders in Copenhagen, Prof Plimer said Governments were treating the public like “fools” and using climate change to increase taxes.

    He said carbon dioxide has had no impact on temperature and that recent warming was part of the natural cycle of climate stretching over ­billions of years.

    If you have to argue your science by using fraud, your science is not valid.
    Professor Pilmer

    Prof Plimer told a London audience: “Climates always change. They always have and they always will. They are driven by a number of factors that are random and cyclical.”

    His comments came days after a scandal in climate-change research emerged through the leak of emails from the world-leading research unit at the University of East Anglia. They appeared to show that scientists had been massaging data to prove that global warming was taking place

    The Climate Research Unit also admitted getting rid of much of its raw climate data, which means other scientists cannot check the subsequent research. Last night the head of the CRU, Professor Phil Jones, said he would stand down while an independent review took place.

    Professor Plimer said climate change was caused by natural events such as volcanic eruptions, the shifting of the Earth’s orbit and cosmic radiation. He said: “Carbon dioxide levels have been up to 1,000 times higher in the past. CO2 cannot be driving global warming now.

    “In the past we have had rapid and significant climate change with temperature changes greater than anything we are measuring today. They are driven by processes that have been going on since the beginning of time.”

    He cited periods of warming during the Roman Empire and in the Middle Ages – when Vikings grew crops on Greenland – and cooler phases such as the Dark Ages and the Little Ice Age from 1300 to 1850.

    And he predicted that the next phase would cool the planet.

    Climate change is widely blamed on the burning of fossil fuels which release greenhouse gases such as CO2 into the atmosphere, where they trap the sun’s heat.

    The talks at Copenhagen are expected to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally.

    But Professor Plimer, of Adelaide and Melbourne Universities, said that to stop climate change Governments should find ways to prevent changes to the Earth’s orbit and ocean currents and avoid explosions of supernovae in space. Of the saga of the leaked emails, he said: “If you have to argue your science by using fraud, your science is not valid.”

    The CRU’s Professor Jones has admitted some of the emails may have had “poorly chosen words” and were sent in the “heat of the moment”. But he has categorically denied manipulating data and said he stood by the science. And yesterday he dismissed suggestions of a conspiracy to alter ­evidence to support a theory of man-made global warming as “complete rubbish”.

    But mining geology professor Plimer said there was a huge momentum behind the climate-change lobby.

    He suggested many scientists had a vested interest in promoting climate change because it helped secure more funding for research. He said: “The climate comrades are trying to keep the gravy train going. Governments are also keen on putting their hands as deep as possible into our pockets.

    “The average person has been talked down to. He has been treated like a fool. Yet the average person has common sense.”

    But Vicky Pope, head of Met Office Climate Change Advice, said: “We are seeing changes in climate on a timescale we have not seen before.

    “There clearly are natural variations. But the only way we can explain these trends is when we include both man-made and natural changes to the climate.

    “We have also seen declines in summer sea ice over the past 30 years, glaciers retreating for 150 years, changing rainfall patterns and increases in subsurface and surface ocean temperatures.”

    And as the war of words between the rival camps intensified, leading economist Lord Stern dismissed the sceptics as “muddled”.

    Lord Stern, who produced a detailed report on the issue for the Government, said evidence of ­climate change was “overwhelming”. He accepted that all views should be heard but said the degree of ­scepticism among “real scientists” was very small.

    Climategate: it’s all unravelling now

    So many new developments: which story do we pick? Maybe best to summarise, instead. After all, it’s not like you’re going to find much of this reported in the MSM.

    1. Australia’s Senate rejects Emissions Trading Scheme for a second time. Or: so turkeys don’t vote Christmas. Expect to see a lot more of this: politicians starting to become aware their party’s position on AGW is completely out of kilter with the public mood and economic reality. Kevin Rudd’s Emissions Trading Scheme – what Andrew Bolt calls “a $114 billion green tax on everything” – would have wreaked havoc on the coal-dependent Australian economy. That’s why several opposition Liberal frontbenchers resigned rather than vote with the Government on ETS; why Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull lost his job; and why the Senate voted down the ETS.

    2. Danes caught fiddling their carbon credits. (Hat tip: Philip Stott) Carbon trading is the Emperor’s New Clothes of international finance. It was invented by none other than Ken Lay, whose Enron would currently be one of the prime beneficiaries in the global alternative energy market, if it hadn’t been shown to be (nearly) as fraudulent as the current AGW scam. It is a licence to fleece, cheat and rob. Still, jolly embarrassing for the Danes to get caught red handed, what with their hosting a conference shortly in which the world’s leaders will try, straight-faced, to persuade us that carbon emissions trading is the only viable way of defeating ManBearPig.

    3. Hats off to The Daily Express – the first British newspaper to make the AGW scam its front page story.

    The piece was inspired by another bravura performance by Professor Ian Plimer, the Aussie geologist who argues that climate change has been going on quite naturally, oblivious of human activity, for the last 4,567 million years.

    4. BBC finally gets round to reporting – sort of – that Climatic Research Unit at University of East Anglia may have been up to no good. It’s true that this report on their website is so hedged with special pleading for the temporarily suspended director Phil Jones the man might have written it himself. But on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning, I did hear the newsreader reporting it as more than just a routine theft story. Which is a start.

    5. Legal actions ahoy! Over the next few weeks, one thing we can be absolutely certain of is concerted efforts by the rich, powerful and influential AGW lobby to squash the Climategate story. We’ve seen this already in the “nothing to see here” response of Dr Rajendra Pachauri, the jet-setting, troll-impersonating railway engineer who runs the IPCC and wants to stop ice being served with water in restaurants. This is why those of us who oppose his scheme to carbon-tax the global economy back to the dark ages must do everything in our power to bring the scandal to a wider audience. One way to do this is law suits.

    At Ian Plimer’s lunch talk yesterday, Viscount Monckton talked of at least two in the offing – both by scientists, one British, one Canadian, who intend to pursue the CRU for criminal fraud. Their case, quite simply, is that the scientists implicated in Climategate have gained funding and career advancement by twisting data, hiding evidence, and shutting out dissenters by corrupting the peer-review process. More news on this, as I hear it.

    Lord Monckton has written an indispensible summary of the Climategate revelations so far.

    6. Watch out Green Dave! The Independent reports on the growing backlash within the party to Cameron’s libtard-wooing greenery. Turning to the Independent for a balanced report on environmental matters is a bit like consulting Der Sturmer for a sensible, insightful view on the Jewish question. Still, for once, the house journal of eco-loonery seems to have got it right and the point made by Tory backbencher David Davis is well made:

    “The ferocious determination to impose hair-shirt policies on the public – taxes on holiday flights, or covering our beautiful countryside with wind turbines that look like props from War of the Worlds – is bound to cause a reaction in any democratic country.”

    Searching in Vain for the Obama Magic

    Never before has a speech by President Barack Obama felt as false as his Tuesday address announcing America’s new strategy for Afghanistan. It seemed like a campaign speech combined with Bush rhetoric — and left both dreamers and realists feeling distraught.

    One can hardly blame the West Point leadership. The academy commanders did their best to ensure that Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama’s speech would be well-received.

    Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower Hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond “enthusiastically” to the speech. But it didn’t help: The soldiers’ reception was cool.

    One didn’t have to be a cadet on Tuesday to feel a bit of nausea upon hearing Obama’s speech. It was the least truthful address that he has ever held. He spoke of responsibility, but almost every sentence smelled of party tactics. He demanded sacrifice, but he was unable to say what it was for exactly.

    An additional 30,000 US soldiers are to march into Afghanistan — and then they will march right back out again. America is going to war — and from there it will continue ahead to peace. It was the speech of a Nobel War Prize laureate.

    Just in Time for the Campaign

    For each troop movement, Obama had a number to match. US strength in Afghanistan will be tripled relative to the Bush years, a fact that is sure to impress hawks in America. But just 18 months later, just in time for Obama’s re-election campaign, the horror of war is to end and the draw down will begin. The doves of peace will be let free.

    The speech continued in that vein. It was as though Obama had taken one of his old campaign speeches and merged it with a text from the library of ex-President George W. Bush. Extremists kill in the name of Islam, he said, before adding that it is one of the “world’s great religions.” He promised that responsibility for the country’s security would soon be transferred to the government of President Hamid Karzai — a government which he said was “corrupt.” The Taliban is dangerous and growing stronger. But “America will have to show our strength in the way that we end wars,” he added.

    It was a dizzying combination of surge and withdrawal, of marching to and fro. The fast pace was reminiscent of plays about the French revolution: Troops enter from the right to loud cannon fire and then they exit to the left. And at the end, the dead are left on stage.

    Obama’s Magic No Longer Works

    But in this case, the public was more disturbed than entertained. Indeed, one could see the phenomenon in a number of places in recent weeks: Obama’s magic no longer works. The allure of his words has grown weaker.

    It is not he himself who has changed, but rather the benchmark used to evaluate him. For a president, the unit of measurement is real life. A leader is seen by citizens through the prism of their lives — their job, their household budget, where they live and suffer. And, in the case of the war on terror, where they sometimes die.

    Political dreams and yearnings for the future belong elsewhere. That was where the political charmer Obama was able to successfully capture the imaginations of millions of voters. It is a place where campaigners — particularly those with a talent for oration — are fond of taking refuge. It is also where Obama set up his campaign headquarters, in an enormous tent called “Hope.”

    In his speech on America’s new Afghanistan strategy, Obama tried to speak to both places. It was two speeches in one. That is why it felt so false. Both dreamers and realists were left feeling distraught.

    The American president doesn’t need any opponents at the moment. He’s already got himself.

    House Republicans Blast Democrats, Obama Over Alleged ACORN Ties

    A handful of House Republicans did their best on Tuesday to shame Democrats and the Obama administration for its supposed connections to the controversial anti-poverty group ACORN.

    Republicans also voiced complaints that Democrats are not moving forward with investigations into the organization that is alleged to have committed widespread voter fraud to support Democratic candidates, in violation of the group’s tax-exempt status.

    “ACORN is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said at Tuesday’s two-hour long partisan forum attended by eight Republicans but no Democrats.

    Another source of frustration for Republicans is a legal decision from the Justice Department, made public last week, that says officials at Housing and Urban Development can honor its existing contracts with ACORN despite a recently passed law forbidding federal funds from going to the group.

    Congress banned federal funding to ACORN after members of the group were caught in an undercover video offering advice on how to evade tax laws to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    “The White House will do everything it can to make sure ACORN will continue to get federal funding,” Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., exclaimed.

    Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who was dubbed the “ACORN king” because of the bucket of acorns displayed prominently by his side, said he’s convinced that any investigation of ACORN will reflect poorly on the Obama administration.

    “These roads will lead to the White House,” King asserted.

    But one of the panel’s guest speakers said there’s no evidence to suggest there’s an ongoing FBI or Justice Department investigation. Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation suggested that if the allegations made against ACORN were lodged against a mortgage company, there’d be great fanfare from Attorney General Eric Holder.

    A Justice Department spokesman simply said “we decline comment” when asked about plans to investigate ACORN.

    The lawmakers also heard from Anita MonCrief, a former ACORN worker-turned- whistleblower who said she saw organized illegal activity in what she described as a “culture of dishonesty.” She talked about how ACORN was armed with a list of “maxed out” Obama campaign donors who were solicited for funds to help voter registration efforts.

    MonCreif also discussed how the voter registration workers were pressured to meet daily quotas and even threatened with prosecution if they failed to keep pace.

    “The poor will be better served when ACORN is no longer the go-to place for the poor,” Issa declared.

    Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita blamed ACORN for producing hundreds of bogus registration in just one Northern Indiana County.

    Rokita, a Republican, said the problem of intentional fraudulent voter registration threatens to undermine the democratic process.

    “This is an American issue,” he said. “This is a constitutional issue. Americans should be mad.”

    Representatives from several House Democratic offices did not immediately respond to Fox News’ questions about the Republican forum.

    Tiger Woods Apologizes for ‘Transgressions’ in Statement as More Affairs Are Alleged

    Tiger Woods apologized Wednesday for letting his family down as more women were romantically linked to the married golfer.

    In a written statement Woods said, “I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings.”

    Last week, two days before Woods crashed his sport utility vehicle into a fire hydrant and tree outside his house, the National Enquirer published a story alleging that Woods had been seeing a New York nightclub hostess, and that they were recently together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters.

    SLIDESHOW: Woods’ alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel.

    The woman, Rachel Uchitel, denied having an affair with Woods.

    Since then, San Diego cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs told to Us magazine that she had a 31-month-long affair with the golf champ, and Life & Style magazine has a story claiming Woods had a sexual relationship with Vegas nightclub manager Kalika Moquin.

    The allegations of infidelity continue to multiply as the ramifications from his accident recede. The world’s most famous golfer will only be cited for careless driving outside his home in the exclusive gated community of Isleworth. It will add four points to his driving record, but he will not face criminal charges, the Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday.

    Woods, who was briefly unconscious after the crash, never spoke with investigators. Instead, he provided his driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance to investigators, as required by Florida law.

    SLIDESHOW: Woods’ alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs.

    Florida “is not pursuing criminal charges in this matter nor is there any testimony or other evidence to support any additional charges of any kind other than the charge of careless driving,” said Sgt. Kim Montes, a spokesman for the highway patrol. “Despite the celebrity status of Mr. Woods, the Florida Highway Patrol has completed its investigation in the same professional manner it strives to complete each traffic investigation.”

    His only regret was getting caught.

    C”mon who is he trying to kid.

  190. tellitlikeitis says:

    These celebraties crack me up. They forget that the world is watching them 24/7. This comes with the territory of being rich and famous. When you have a face like Tigers that is recognized all over the world you have to be pretty stupid if you think you are going to be able to cheat and get away with it.

  191. tellitlikeitis says:

    These women are going to be coming out of the woodwork now trying to cash in on their stories with Tiger Woods. I wonder if this will drive him into retirement and seclusion.

  192. Foxwood says:

    It may drive him to the poor house.

  193. tellitlikeitis says:

    All I know Foxwood is his wife will be in for a huge pay day over this. She has got him literaly by the short and curleys now. lol

  194. tellitlikeitis says:

    I would be surprized if she doesn’t bail on him. Most women would in a situation like this would with exceptions like Hillary Clinton. lol
    It would be hard enough for her to deal with his cheating with one woman but this is with multiple women. This has got to be devestating for her.
