The Obama Administration

Don't fall for the silly hype about Obama and Saul Alinsky, and John L. McKnight and ACORN and radicalism, and the rest of that hysterical spiel. Those are designed to fix blame on the underlings while giving the big ones a pass. These people and organizations, and Obama himself, are nothing but puppets and front men for the arch-manipulators at Harvard. Without Harvard political connections, they would be nothing. They use ordinary people as bit players and extras in theatrical productions of simulated "democracy." And by serving as recruiting pools for the Harvard elites, they obstruct and prevent community organizing that actually represents the people.

It was Harvard elitists who concocted the corrupt pseudo-science of lifestyle questionnaires to create the pretext for tyrannizing over the details of peoples' lives. Harvard prestige and influence enabled their decades-long mass media brainwashing campaign, to condition the people to submit to it. Harvard economists were the engineers of the healthcare reform plan for which Obama was nothing but the head shill. With Obama for their front man, the slimy Harvard elites can fall back on their standard ploy of smearing anybody who opposes them as "racist," when they're really opposing the crypto-Puritan elders of Harvard, who try to disguise their abusive and oppressive religion as "science."

The Healthcare Reform Railroad

Obama's Biggest Broken Campaign Promise

"Obama made health care in general a major part of his campaign so that when he won, he could claim a mandate and push for reform during his first year. In doing so, Obama savaged his primary opponent, Hillary Clinton, for arguing that people should be mandated to buy health insurance. 'If a mandate was the solution, we could try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody buy a house,' he said on a CNN morning show on Super Tuesday during the election." And he attacked John McCain by accusing him of wanting to give you a tax credit with one hand, while raising taxes with the other. (After Ripping Clinton And McCain, Obama Embraces Their Policies. By Ryan Grim. The Huntington Post, Dec. 22, 2009.)

After Ripping Clinton And McCain, Obama Embraces Their Policies / Huntington Post

"Walk back with us through the mists of time to early 2008, and you might remember then-candidate Barack Obama defending the rights of hard-working people so they would not be forced to buy health insurance. Obama's position was different from his two nearest rivals, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, who included mandates for individuals to buy health insurance in their plans for reform. It was an issue that got downright contentious on the campaign trail... 'Hillary Clinton's attacking, but what's she not telling you about her health care plan? It forces everyone to buy insurance, even if you can't afford it, and you pay a penalty if you don't," said one of his television ads.'" (Obama flip-flops on requiring people to buy health care.

The Government's Case for the Individual Mandate

No. 11-398
In the Supreme Court of the United States

Brief for Petitioners
(Minimum Coverage Provision)

The government and its mass propaganda apparatus pretend that the key issue of its Constitutionality rests on bickering over wheat farming and the like. But the government's actual arguments are mainly a vicious bashing of the uninsured, with unfair stereotyping to manipulate emotions. It reads as if the government is prosecuting poor people for being poor! It primarily relies on a special-interest group report called "The Hidden Health Tax (May 2009), concocted by the so-called Families USA, which has received over $2 million from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. RWJF and its various front groups, including the Service Employees International Union, were primary lobbyists for the ACA. And the Obama administration is infested with their ilk. Some of the Government's cuts and bashes, with rejoinders:

"The uninsured do, however, consume health care (frequently in hospital emergency rooms or inpatient facilities), but often they cannot pay for it." But, emergency rooms have no obligation to treat anyone who isn't an emergency. They can and do refer non-emergencies elsewhere.

"As a class, the uninsured shift tens of billions of dollars of dollars of costs for the uncompensated care they receive to other market participants annually." As a class, the uninsured pay a larger proportion of their bills out of their own pockets. And the government's remedy would do nothing to alter the fact that the costs of people who can't pay must of necessity be shifted to others. Furthermore, those who can't afford the cost of their health care would be even less able to pay the cost of insurance premiums, the average expense of which is higher than the average medical care cost!

"That cost-shifting drives up insurance premiums, which, in turn, makes insurance unaffordable to even more people." But, Government programs currently pick up three-fourths of the bill, not the insurance companies. It would only have been necessary to expand existing programs to cover the rest. An assault on the Constitution is therefore unnecessary. And, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation report, even if all private funding for uncompensated care were recouped from private insurance payments, this would still amount to only 1.7% of private insurance premiums.

"The Act breaks this cycle through a comprehensive framework of economic regulation and incentives that will improve the functioning of the national market for health care by regulating the terms on which insurance is offered, controlling costs, and rationalizing the timing and method of payment for health care services." In fact, according to the CBO, the ACA will force the taxpayers to pay a predicted average subsidy of $5800 for people to buy health insurance, to pay average annual health costs of less than $1800 (KFF). This is hardly a good start for achieving any of those other purported goals.

"The customary means by which people pay for services in the U.S. health care market is through insurance, either private or governmental." This is in large part because the political forces of private profit and social engineering rigged the system, by excluding the cost of employer-provided health insurance from the income tax. This is admitted in the brief, pp. 21-22. And this exclusion is the nation's costliest tax subsidy, which reduced federal revenue by $246 billion in 2007!

"The average bill for a single hospital stay for an uninsured person was $22,200, and nearly 60% of those hospitalizations generated bills greater than $10,000." But, only a very small proportion of the uninsured are hospitalized in a year. And the $5800 taxpayer-funded subsidy to buy health insurance would generate costs of $23,200 in only four years, and $11,600 in a mere two years! This is the cost of forcing people to buy private insurance, whether they need it or not. Insurance is not a good buy. It benefits primarily the insurance companies. Presumably, this is the real intent.

"Congress found that this cost-shifting increases the average premium for insured families by more than $1000 per year." Those figures from "The Hidden Health Tax" are suspect. The cost in lost tax revenues of the exclusion of health insurance from the income tax was $246 billion in 2009, while the total health costs of the uninsured, both compensated and uncompensated, were $116 billion in 2008. The uncompensated costs were only $43 billion. This provides a comparison of who is causing the largest loss.

"Health care providers pass on much of the cost of [uncompensated] care to private insurers, which pass it on to insured participants in the health care market." Health care providers pass on much of the cost to uninsured people, by billing them at higher rates, and help enable the insurance companies to charge lower rates to their customers. Furthermore: "The highest earners were by far the most likely to report getting their health insurance from their employer, with 70% doing so in 2011. Among low-income people, just 24% said their insurance came from their employer."

http://www.medpagetoday.com/Washington-Watch/Reform/31213

"To take another example, the Act will provide substantial tax credits for insurance purchased by eligible taxpayers in the insurance exchanges... It provides an extra incentive for employees to seek and accept, and employers to offer, coverage through the workplace." But, this means more lost tax revenues, which must be made up for by everyone. It's artificially rigging the game to benefit the insurance companies again. These are precisely the features of the current system that ought to be abolished!

"Here, for the reasons explained above, the practice of going without health insurance and seeking to pay for it in other ways has a massive effect on interstate commerce." To put this supremely crass and cynical claim in plain English: Because many people can't afford health insurance or choose not to buy it, it deprives the insurance companies of potential business. Therefore, it is the Government's right to intervene on behalf of the insurance industry and boost their business at taxpayer expense.

The bottom line is that it's unnecessary and improper, because the government could have provided health care to the uninsured simply by expanding existing government programs. Furthermore, it makes covering the uninsured cost even more, not less, and this is contrary to the government's purported purpose.

An additional and even greater outrage, which the supposed opponents of the ACA have never contested, is in the so-called "wellness" provisions which are a required part of every government-approved plan. These require people to submit to government tyranny over the details of their personal lifestyles, whose dictates are based on deliberate and systematic scientific fraud, perpetrated over many decades, and funded by the United States Government itself! This amounts to the establishment of a compulsory state religion of quackery, fraud and charlatanism, resembling in all respects the health ideology of the Third Reich, and resting on the same pseudo-science of ignoring the role of infection. The Nazis could hide behind the excuse of ignorance, but the United States Government cannot!

For the reasons explained above, the so-called "minimum coverage provision" is both unnecessary and improper, and an unconstitutional means to an unconstitutional end.

Robert Wood Johnson's Slave Boy OBAMA SIGNS FDA REGULATION BILL

The incompetent, brain-dead Obama whines that "They're [children] aggressively targeted as customers by the tobacco industry. They're exposed to a constant and insidious barrage of advertising where they live, where they learn, and where they play. Most insidiously, they are offered products with flavorings that mask the taste of tobacco and make it even more tempting." And what about the outrageous lies of the United States government, pawned off on them as truth by lying media who censor all criticism, to systematically brainwash them with the health ideology of the Third Reich! Mewls Obama, "When Henry Waxman first brought tobacco CEOs before Congress in 1994, they famously denied that tobacco was deadly, nicotine was addictive, or that their companies marketed to children. And they spent millions upon millions in lobbying and advertising to fight back every attempt to expose these denials as lies." No, Obama - the unspeakably evil United States Government embarked upon a campaign of smears and defamations to wage a war of cultural genocide against tens of millions of innocent citizens, and force lies down our throats! And the despicable cur parrots the Hitler-like BIG LIE that smoking is an economic burden to society: "it will reduce some of the billions we spend on tobacco-related health care costs in this country." This is nothing but U.S. Government hate propaganda, concocted by falsely pretending that costs paid by smokers were paid by "society," and PRETENDING THAT NON-SMOKERS' COSTS DON'T EXIST AT ALL! THIS PROVES HOW TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY EVIL THE US GOVERNMENT IS! And then the slimy lying pieces of less-than-human filth pretend they're going "solve" society's problems - with lies lies lies lies lies ies lies lies lies lies ies lies lies lies and more lies! And finding scapegoats to persecute, just like their Puritan ancestors in the Salem witch hunts!

The slimy White House press release simpers that "By January 2010, tobacco manufacturers and importers will submit information to FDA in their possession about ingredients and additives in tobacco products, a description of the nicotine content and delivery, and the health consequences of tobacco products." You pieces of filth, when is the public going to be told the truth that the government deliberately and systematically commits scientific fraud by using defective studies that ignore the role of infection in order to falsely blame tobacco! What about all those HPV-LUNG CANCER STUDIES those anti-smoker criminals conceal! And then the corrupt garbage who perpetrate this fraud will be the ones to regulate tobacco, which Obama's RWJF masters pretentiously call, "science-based regulation!" And, "FDA will issue regulations requiring graphics on labels depicting the health risks of smoking." This is nothing but a license for the most putrid and corrupt lie-mongers on the face of the planet to spew crude abuse and defamations in our faces, and at our own expense!

Obama's Nazi Nominees and AIG/RWJF ties

"As New York City’s heath commissioner in the 1990s, [Margaret] Hamburg fought for a total ban on indoor smoking in public places long before states and cities began adopting such aggressive restrictions. And as health commissioner in Baltimore, [Joshua] Sharfstein pushed through an indoor smoking ban in the city that paved the way for a similar statewide ban." (Obama’s Picks for FDA Adopted Hard Line on Tobacco. By Sean Mussenden. Media General News Service, March 18 2009.)

"Smoke-Free Restaurants Are Booming in New York City" - SIC!

Remember how the anti-smoking propagandists boasted that "New York City's smokefree restaurant law is a success. Business in the Big Apple is booming. According to Tim Zagat, co-publisher of the popular Zagat Survey, 1995 finds a record high number of restaurant openings and a record low number of closings." And FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg was the New York City Health Commissioner at the time. (Smoke-Free Restaurants Are Booming in New York City. SmokeFree Educational Services. SmokeFree Air newsletter, Summer 1995.)

They expect us to naively believe that this is proof that smoking bans are good for business! BUT - as the old saw goes, when things look too good to be true, they probably are. We now know that there has in fact been a massive and systematic conspiracy to grant loans, including commercial loans, which should never have been made. And, that these bad loans were insured by AIG - whose directors have included two trustees of THE ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION, Frank J. Hoenemeyer and Edward E. Matthews! Matthews was senior vice chairman of investments and financial services at AIG, and has been a director since 1973.

"Edward E. Matthews, M.B.A., was elected to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Board of Trustees in January 1994. Matthews is senior vice president and director of C.V. Starr & Co. and director of Starr International, private companies affiliated with American International Group, Inc. (AIG), one of the world's largest insurance and financial service companies. He previously served as senior vice chairman—Investments and Financial Services of AIG. Before his move to AIG, he was a partner and managing director of the investment banking firm of Morgan Stanley & Co. Matthews is a trustee emeritus of Princeton University and past chairman of the board of Princeton Investment Company, the managing company for Princeton University's $13 billion endowment. He also is vice chairman of the Princeton Medical Center and a trustee of Princeton Day School. Matthews earned an M.B.A. from Harvard and an A.B. from Princeton University." (Edward E. Matthews bio. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, accessed 3/19/2009.) Meanwhile, the Obama adminstration's transition team included William V. Corr, who received over $1 million from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to lobby for FDA regulation of tobacco; and Nancy-Ann DeParle, a board member of RWJF.

As of AIG's Apr. 4, 2008 filing, Matthews was a director of the Starr Group, the largest holder of AIG common stock.

And they went so hog-wild that they crashed the global economy, and now everybody's screwed - except them, because Barack Obama is their puppet and gave them a bailout!

So this is how the anti-smoking conspirators created their phony economic booms - and now they expect the American taxpayers to bail them out, because they're supposedly "too big to fail!" Those so-called "retention payments" are probably hush money. And naturally, the real conspirators expect to get away, while the public is distracted with ritual punishments of the small fry! And New York City is not the only town where anti-smokers claim that business has "boomed" since smoking bans were passed.

Obama was a campaign contribution darling of AIG

"Senator Barack Obama received a $101,332 bonus from American International Group in the form of political contributions according to Opensecrets.org. The two biggest Congressional recipients of bonuses from the A.I.G. are - Senators Chris Dodd and Senator Barack Obama. The A.I.G. Financial Products affiliate of A.I.G. gave out $136,928, the most of any AIG affiliate, in the 2008 cycle. I would note that A.I.G.’s financial products division is the unit that wrote trillions of dollars’ worth of credit-default swaps and 'misjudged' the risk." (Obama Received a $101,332 Bonus from AIG. By Dan Spencer. Examiner, Mar. 17, 2009.)

Who Benefits From the Bailout?

The beneficiaries of the bailout are the bondholders who own the debt of companies like Citigroup, Bank of America, JPMorgan, and General Motors. Major holders include MetLife, AIG's life insurance arm, Fidelity, Prudential, Dodge & Cox, and TIAA-CREF. But, "if there was a video "Banks Gone Wild," bondholders would be the cheering crowd feeding the banks drinks and encouraging them to go further."

Obama Nominates Nazi to Head CDC

Thomas Frieden, the health commissioner of New York City whom Obama has just nominated to head the CDC, is a deluded, science-despising, power-mad Nazi imbecile, who believes that studies based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires which ignore the role of infection, are legitimate science - which they are not. His ban on trans fats was founded on nothing but the Nazi technique of repeating a lie over and over again. Besides his total contempt for personal liberty, Frieden and his ilk have no respect whatsoever for truth or scientific integrity. To these criminals, studies are valued only for their utility as cynical instruments of mass propaganda. They don't care if their compulsory nostrums won't improve public health, they just want to shove tyranny down our throats. They care even less that they won't save society money - they just want to shove tyranny down our throats. And besides our personal liberties, the really dangerous thing is that this criminal regime will eliminate any research efforts in the CDC and elsewhere on the role of infections in the diseases that these charlatans blame on lifestyle, and consign all the gains we have made to oblivion for being Politically Incorrect. We will be forced to get all our real science from, e.g., the Islamic Republic of Iran! Already, when we write to "our" members of Congress, we find that all of them are nothing but deluded, science-despising, power-mad Nazi imbeciles, or else spineless bootlickers who don't have the guts to resist them, apart from a few cowardly little squeaks about "nannyism"!

Health Fascist Scientific Fraud is the Real Issue!

There have now been more than 50 studies, which collectively show that human papillomaviruses cause over ten times more lung cancers than the anti-smokers pretend are caused by secondhand smoke. Passive smokers are more likely to have been exposed to this virus than non-smoke-exposed non-smokers, so the anti-smokers are purposely using defective studies that are based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, in order to falsely blame passive smoking for all those extra lung cancers which are actually caused by HPV.

The anti-smokers are automatically guilty of scientific fraud for ignoring those fifty eight studies. Furthermore, they have systematically committed the same type of scientific fraud in every disease they blame on smoking and passive smoking, as well as ignoring other exonerating evidence. For example, since the anti-smoking movement began, the death rates from asthma have more than doubled in every age group - yet the criminals who blame passive smoking for asthma are never held held accountable to the facts. No anti-smoker has EVER been held accountable for spewing lies and defamations against innocent people!

The anti-smokers have systematically committed this same type of fraud with every disease they blame on smoking and passive smoking, and their food fascist allies do the same to falsely blame diet and lifestyle. For more than six decades, the United States Congress has nurtured, enouraged, rewarded, and most of all, FUNDED their deliberate, malicious scientific fraud, without the slightest trace of reprimand. For more than six decades, the United States Government has been engaged in the systematic persecution and cultural genocide of innocent people, at the behest of corrupt conspirators who want to impose a totalitarian dictatorship, and shove every detail of their (Puritanism-based) lifestyles down the throats of everyone in the world!

End the War of Cultural Genocide Against Smokers!

For starters, the Office on Smoking and Health at the Centers for Disease Control should be abolished. The very premise of its existence, to wage a war of cultural genocide against smokers on behalf of anti-smokers, is unconstitutional and an outrage against every principle of a free society. The rest of the CDC, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institutes of Health should all be purged of perpetrators of scientific fraud as well. And, the anti-smokers should be prosecuted for conspiracy, fraud and racketeering under the RICO statutes.

Citizen's Briefing Book / Change.gov

Obama Health Policy is NO CHANGE AT ALL!

The Transition Team are the advisors who "begin implementing signature policy initiatives immediately after they are sworn in." They include William V. Corr, executive director of the anti-smoking group Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, as a Lead for the Department of Health and Human Services Team. Corr was chief counsel and policy director from 1998 to 2000 for then-Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. He "joined the anti-tobacco lobby in 2000, and among other things has lobbied Congress to give the Food and Drug Administration, an HHS agency, the authority to regulate tobacco. An Obama transition official said Mr. Corr, a registered lobbyist until September, is recused from working on tobacco issues." (Obama Advisers May Signal New Approach to Health Policy. Wall Street Journal, Nov. 19, 2008.) As if Corr's involvement could be anything other than "tobacco-related," because of this corrupt movement's absolute dependence upon the use of scientific fraud! Could you imagine Obama appointing a tobacco executive to such a position, and then getting away with proclaiming that he's "recused from working on tobacco issues?" Corr is also a board member of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a health fascist cesspool. Nancy-Ann DeParle has been a board member of the health fascist Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Nicole Lurie is one of its stooges. Jeffrey P. Koplan is a former Director of the Centers for Disease Control.

White House liaison to Congress, Philip M. Schiliro, is a former aide of Rep. Henry Waxman

"In the House, Henry A. Waxman of California, a Democrat and chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, plans to move quickly with the F.D.A. legislation, said his spokeswoman, Karen Lightfoot. A majority of House and Senate members are co-sponsors, and Mr. Waxman’s former chief of staff, Philip M. Schiliro, has been named Mr. Obama’s White House liaison to Congress... And among those whose names are being circulated as candidates to head the F.D.A. is Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, the antismoking health commissioner for Baltimore and a former investigator for Representative Waxman. It was Mr. Waxman who convened the memorable 1994 hearing where seven tobacco executives swore under oath that nicotine was not addictive. The F.D.A. legislation would set up a new office to deal especially with tobacco, financed entirely by new industry fees. A director would have to be named, a staff hired, procedures written. The legislation allows further restraints on sales and marketing to young people and provides for stronger warning labels, similar to ones in Canada with graphic depictions of smoking-related illnesses." (Coming Down on Tobacco. By Duff Wilson. New York Times, Jan. 5, 2009.) In fact, the tobacco executives didn't "[swear] under oath that nicotine was not addictive." In a classic imitation of Nazi propaganda, the media sewage falsely captioned a picture of the executives being sworn in. (And let's never forget that Surgeons General have NEVER been obliged to speak under oath! That's because they're lying through their teeth, with the collusion of the corrupt scum in Congress!) Furthermore, the tobacco executives told the truth about nicotine. That "nicotine addiction" defamation was cynically concocted, for propaganda purposes, by the same corrupt clique of politcially-connected scum who have totally corrupted subject they touch with their filthy hands!

HHS Secretary nominee Kathleen Sebelius - another brain-dead robot

Political experience: Elected Kansas governor 2002; re-elected 2006; elected Kansas insurance commissioner 1994; re-elected 1998; Elected Kansas House of Representatives 1986-1994; director of Kansas Trial Lawyers Association, 1977-1987; aide in Kansas Department of Corrections, 1975-1977. Sebelius is the daughter of a former Ohio governor and daughter-in-law to a former Kansas congressman [Keith G. Sebelius]. Education: Bachelor of arts degree from Trinity College, Washington, D.C., 1970; master's of public administration from Kansas University, 1978. (Kathleen Sebelius: Two decades in politics. By Scott Rothschild. Lawrence Journal, Feb. 18, 2009.)

On Jun. 3, 2008, this brain-dead puppet, Gov. Kathleen Sedelius, released a spew of stock and anti-smoker lies and defamations, entitled "Tobacco is costing Kansas." She spewed that "Each year nearly 3,900 Kansans die from tobacco-related diseases, including 290 deaths attributed to secondhand smoke." It's all based on fraudulent studies that ignore HPV in order to falsely blame tobacco. She spewed that "Kansans spend almost $927 million each year in medical expenses related to tobacco. Our state spends an estimated $196 million on tobacco related Medicaid expenses. Kansas businesses lose an estimated $863 million each year in lost productivity from workers due to tobacco related illness." That Hitler Big Lie is based on falsely pretending that costs paid by SMOKERS, namely their lost wages, were paid by OTHERS - namely, the businesses that didn't pay them! Those businesses were out-of-pocket for the sum of NOTHING! And it's based on the deliberate fraud of pretending that non-smokers' costs do not exist at all, when in fact, the extra costs of people with so-called "healthy lifestyles" are the real burden. Furthermore, it's based on systematically falsely blaming smoking for a multitude of diseases that are really caused by infection. So, the criminally insane health policy that Nazis like Kathleen Sebelius inevitably follow is to keep the public ignorant about the true, INFECTIOUS causes of those diseases that they love to blame on smoking and lifestyle, in order to divert money into a war of cultural genocide against anyone who differs from the privileged elites whose burden of these infections is less! It's a so-called "health policy" which has been cynically contrived to blame the victims, while ensuring that they continue to suffer needlessly!

Tobacco is costing Kansas / Kansas Office of the Governor

Kathleen Sebelius is a longtime anti-smoker, dating from when she was a State Representative from District 56. She voted several times for smoking bans (HB 2412, Journal of the House, Apr. 6, 1987; HB 2823 and HB 2717, Journal of the House, Mar. 8, 1988; and SB 779, Journal of the House, May 3, 1988).

Jeanne M. Lambrew, Director of the Health and Human Services Office of Health Reform

Jeanne M. Lambrew "was originally set to work at the White House Office of Health Reform as deputy to Tom Daschle, Obama's original choice for Health and Human Services secretary. Daschle and Lambrew worked together at CAP [the Center for American Progress] and co-authored a book on health-care reform." (Jeanne Lambrew. Who Runs Gov, accessed Mar. 1, 2010.) She "worked at the Department of Health and Human Services during the 1993-1994 health reform efforts, and coordinated analyses of budget proposals in 1995." She was an assistant professor of public policy at Georgetown University in 1996, and from 2001-2007. "From 1997 to 2001, Dr. Lambrew worked on health policy at the White House as the program associate director for health at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and as the senior health analyst at the National Economic Council. In these roles, she helped coordinate health policy development, evaluated legislative proposals, and conducted and managed analyses and cost estimates with OMB, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Treasury Department, the Labor Department and other relevant agencies. She was the White House lead on drafting and implementing the Children's Health Insurance Program and helped develop the president's Medicare reform plan, initiative on long-term care, and other health care proposals." (Jeanne M. Lambrew bio, University of Texas, accessed Mar. 1, 2010.)

Lambrew is also a co-author with John Podesta and Terence L. Shaw, of "Change in challenging times: a plan for extending and improving health coverage" (Health Aff (Millwood) 2005 Jan-Jun;Suppl Web Exclusives W5-119-W5-132). They want a "dedicated value-added tax." According to them, "The first priority is to create a national focus on disease prevention and health promotion. The U.S. health insurance system now focuses on treating diseases instead of reducing their incidence in the first place. With no guarantee that enrollees will remain in their plans, insurers have little incentive to invest in keeping enrollees healthy over time." This is the battle cry of the charlatans. But their supposed "prevention" doesn't work. It's nothing but deluded and fanatical cult faith, founded on deliberate fraud sponsored by the corrupt politicians with our tax money. Furthermore, insurers already have an incentive to try to keep their enrollees healthy until they can be dumped on Social Security and Medicare. "Coverage for preventive serviceswould be carved out of private health insurance and financed through a new nationwide preventive benefit." The health fascists want to eliminate the disincentive for quack "prevention" by making it compulsory, and buying off the insurers with tax-funded reimbursements.

RM Califf has been an author or co-author of 899 articles since 1978, including numerous studies on smoking, most recently, "Cardiovascular risk profile and outcome of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm in out-patients with atherothrombosis: data from the Reduction of Atherothrombosis for Continued Health (REACH) Registry." Baumgartner I, Hirsch AT, Abola MT, Cacoub PP, Poldermans D, Steg PG, Creager MA, Bhatt DL; REACH Registry investigators (58 collaborators).

Am Heart J 2008 Jul;156(1):177-184, which found that "One-year unadjusted mortality rates were higher for former versus never smokers (9.1% vs 6.7%, P = .0002) but were similar for current versus never smokers (6.5% vs 6.7%, P = .7226)," and that "There was little difference in outcomes from 30 days to 1 year for these smokers who quit versus those who did not."

This fraudulent report decries "overeating, reduced physical activity and smoking" as the supposed cause of "massive increases in cardiovascular risk factors" across the globe, while ignoring the fact that the death rates from heart disease have steadily declined despite these bogus "risk factors," that they began declining before there were any interventions in peoples' lives, and that they have decline equally in smokers and non-smokers.

They both graduated from Yale. (Abby Cook-Mack, David Sandler. New York Times, Mar. 11, 2012.)

Abby Cook-Mack, David Sandler / New York Times

DP Sandler was part of a group, whose members included anti-smoking ringleader Jonathan M. Samet and several other authors of ETS studies, which condemned professional criticism of the hyping false positive results: "Although we acknowledge that false positives do occur, we view the position of Boffetta and colleagues on false positives as unbalanced and potentially harmful to public health... The lack of balance by Boffetta and colleagues in their evaluation of the impact of false-positive findings on epidemiology, the charge that "methodological vigilance is often absent" in epidemiologists' interpretation of their own results, and the false characterization of how epidemiologic findings are used in societal decision making all undermine a major source of information regarding disease risks." (Epidemiology, public health, and the rhetoric of false positives.

Jane Lubchenco, a marine biologist from Oregon State University, will lead the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which overseas ocean and atmospheric studies and performs much of the government’s research on global warming. Dr. Holdren will also be a co-chairman the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology along with the Nobel Prize-winning cancer research Dr. Harold Varmus, a former director of the National Institutes of Health, and Eric S.

Genomewide association studies "explain surprisingly little of the genetic links to most diseases." The companies who do it are generally providing merely recreational services, of little or no clinical relevance. "The problem addressed in the commentaries is that these diseases were expected to be promoted by genetic variations that are common in the population. More than 100 genomewide association studies, often involving thousands of patients in several countries, have now been completed for many diseases, and some common variants have been found. But in almost all cases they carry only a modest risk for the disease. Most of the genetic link to disease remains unexplained." (Genes Show Limited Value in Predicting Diseases. By Nicholas Wade. New York Times, Apr. 15, 2009.) This is how rich people like Eli Broad, who control the government, force the taxpayers to subsidize their pet delusions and crackpot beliefs!

Obama Turns NIOSH into a Tool of Tyranny

Statement by NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard: "This is our vision for identifying and promoting integrated health programs in the workplace and recognizing the multitude of factors that influence a person’s health, safety, ability to work, and well-being in every aspect of their lives... using the workplace as a platform for healthy [SIC] life choices." Their targets are "genetics, age, gender, chronic disease, obesity, smoking, alcohol use, and prescription drug use." And, "One such initiative is the current effort by NIOSH and its partners to emphasize the need to regularly include occupational information in medical records, particularly as records systems transition from paper records to electronic records." (NIOSH’s Howard: Tear down the company fence; build Total Worker Health programs. ISHN Magazine, November 09, 2011.)

Total Worker Health™ [sic] promotes the quackery of the American Heart Association, "Worksite Wellness Programs for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention: A Policy Statement From the American Heart Association" (Circulation 2009;120:1725-1741.) This is based on scientific fraud that falsely blames peoples' lifestyles for diseases that are really caused by infection. And their claims of cost savings are based on pretending that costs paid by individuals are paid by others, and that offsetting costs due to the fact that all people eventually die of something, don't exist at all.

Worksite Wellness Programs for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention / AHA full article

The ringleader of this usurpation is the Harvard School of Public Health. The HSPH Center for Work, Health and Well‐being released a 175-page policy document, SafeWell Practice Guidelines: An Integrated Approach to Worker Health Version 1.0 (by Deborah McLellan PhD, MHS; Elizabeth Harden, BA; Pia Markkanen, ScD, MSc; and Glorian Sorensen, PhD, MPH; February 2012). Page 12: "Health Care Reform may offer incentives for workplace health programs. Provisions under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have created incentives for employers to provide employee health care coverage and made technical assistance and support available to promote workplace health programs. This is likely to result in increased interest in comprehensive worksite health programs as a means of reducing health and business costs." What a coincidence that Obamacare was also engineered at Harvard. It includes "Sample talking points about SafeWell from the CEO," such as, "Health promotion and health protection, home life, and work life are not easily separated in our new work culture." (This is clearly the attitude at those companies that force job candidates to give them their personal email and Facebook logins!) "This work was supported by a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (U19 OH008861), and NIOSH’s Total Worker Health Initiative served as an inspiration for the work." The Center is based at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

"As New York City’s heath commissioner in the 1990s, [Margaret] Hamburg fought for a total ban on indoor smoking in public places long before states and cities began adopting such aggressive restrictions. And as health commissioner in Baltimore, [Joshua] Sharfstein pushed through an indoor smoking ban in the city that paved the way for a similar statewide ban."

They expect us to naively believe that this is proof that the smoking ban is good for business! BUT - as the old saw goes, when things look too good to be true, they probably are. We now know that there has in fact been a massive and systematic conspiracy to grant loans, including commercial loans, which should never have been made. And, that these bad loans were insured by AIG - whose directors have included two trustees of THE ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION, Frank J. Hoenemeyer and Edward E. Matthews! Matthews was senior vice chairman of investments and financial services at AIG, and has been a director since 1973.

So this is how the anti-smoking conspirators created their phony economic booms - and now they expect the American taxpayers to bail them out, because they're supposedly "too big to fail!" Those so-called "retention payments" are probably hush money. And naturally, the real conspirators expect to get away, while the public is distracted with ritual punishments of the small fry! And New York City is not the only town where anti-smokers claim that business has "boomed" since smoking bans were passed.

Obama is a Puppet of the Lasker family!

The Lasker family is part of the powerful secret elite that rules America. The Laskers have had ties to Skull & Bones since the 1800s. He's a grandson of the brother-in-law of the most powerful health lobbyist in history, Mary (Woodard) Lasker, of Watertown, Wis., who was the frontwoman for the Yale-Harvard elites who have turned America into a health fascist dictatorship. His cousin, Edward Lasker, Albert D. Lasker's son, was on the board of directors of Philip Morris from 1962 to 1980 - demonstrating how the anti-smoking conspirators control both sides in order to plunder smokers.

"[David E.] Lasker and his cousin John Schwarz, an author and emeritus professor of political science at the University of Arizona in Tucson, initially made contact with people close to Obama in 2006, before he announced his candidacy... The two have held symposiums in Washington, D.C., for high-level political consultants, political analysts, editors and commentators on the subject." Lasker claims that "The founders believed very strongly that in order to promote freedom, it's essential that governments step in and make sure that Americans are doing a good job 'at being our brother and sisters' keepers, as Obama puts it when he talks about that.'" "In the last 30 years, for example, the overall productivity of the American worker has gone up more than 75 percent, while actual pay in real terms hasn't gone up a nickel, Lasker said." [And that is because the additional money workers would have gotten all went to the Laskers' pet cause, health insurance! -cast] (Inauguration speech may include local attorney's words. By Samara Kalk Derby. The Capital Times, Jan. 13, 2009.) Lasker left a glowing review of his cousin's book on Amazon.com.

Inauguration speech may include local attorney's words / The Capital Times

"Obama's campaign is just filled with little inside references to Communism. The speech in Berlin began with the words, "Citizens of the World!" --- a blatant echo of Marx and Engels' most famous slogan, "Workers of the World, Unite!" -- the last line of the Communist Manifesto. That's not close to the American tradition of political speech-making. It's pure 19th century Europe. Marx and Engels were Prussians, imbued with the Prussian sense of imperialist superiority. Berlin is the capital of Prussia, and became the capital of the united German Reich, cobbled together by Otto Bismarck." (Obama: A puppet of revolutionary billionaires. by Saul Alinsky. The Union News Blog, Oct. 7, 2008.) Correction - by Bismarck and Mr. Lasker's collateral ancestor, Eduard Lasker.

Obama's Past Positions

Under the pretext of "Helping Patients," Obama would "Support disease management programs. Seventy five percent of total health care dollars are spent on patients with one or more chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. Obama will require that providers that participate in the new public plan, Medicare or the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) utilize proven disease management programs. This will improve quality of care, give doctors better information and lower costs." That means shoving health fascist charlatanism down our throats, and it wouldn't lower costs. He also boasts that he has "consistently supported funding for the national institutes of health and the national science foundation," which amounts to unquestioningly shoveling more money into their pockets without holding them accountable for the massive scientific fraud they've perpetrated to inflict their totalitarian agenda on the public. "In the U.S. Senate, Obama cosponsored the Healthy Kids Act of 2007 and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Reauthorization Act of 2007 to ensure that more American children have affordable health care coverage." (Plan for a Healthy America. Obama for America, accessed 3/10/08.)

Plan for a Healthy America / Obama for America

"Underinvestment in prevention and public health... [C]ommunity-based prevention efforts, which have helped to drive down rates of smoking and lead poisoning, for example, are under-utilized despite their effectiveness. The nation faces epidemics of obesity and chronic diseases as well as new threats of pandemic flu and bioterrorism." Obama supports workplace health fascism: "EMPLOYERS. Reduced workforce productivity from illness and disability represents an additional drain on business. To address employee health, an increasing number of employers are offering worksite health promotion programs, onsite clinical preventive services such as flu vaccinations, nutritious foods in their cafeterias and vending machines, and exercise facilities. Equally important, many employers choose insurance plans that cover preventive services for their employees. Barack Obama believes that worksite interventions hold tremendous potential to influence health and will expand and reward these efforts." Obama is an unquestioning believer in anti-smoker scientific fraud: "INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES. The way Americans live, eat, work and play have real implications for their health and wellness. Reports show that over half of U.S. adults do not engage in physical activity at levels consistent with public health recommendations. And the Surgeon General’s report [a pile of lies based on deliberate scientific fraud!] has shown that smoking kills an estimated 440,000 Americans each year and costs $75 billion in direct medical costs [This is the Hitler Big Lie of the SAMMEC!]. Preventive care only works if Americans take personal responsibility for their health and make the right decisions in their own lives – if they eat the right foods, stay active, and stop smoking... Americans also benefit from healthy environments that allow them to pursue healthy choices and behaviors that can help ward off chronic and preventable diseases. Healthy environments include sidewalks, biking paths and walking trails; local grocery stores with fruits and vegetables, restricted advertising for tobacco and alcohol to children; and wellness and educational campaigns. In addition, Obama will increase funding to expand community based preventive interventions to help Americans make better choices to improve their health." He cites the health fascist program of the state of California, which is such a fraud that it counts the fraud of McGinnis & Foege 1993 as a supposedly reputable reference.

Obama was a co-sponsor of S-625, the Kennedy-Cornyn bill for FDA regulation of tobacco. He received $2,500 from Johnson & Johnson in 2006. Re a federal smoking ban, Obama said, "If we can’t provide these kinds of protections at the local level, which would be my preference, I would be supportive of a national law." (Huckabee about-face on smoking. By Jeffrey Young. The Hill, Jan. 16, 2008.) "'I've been chewing on this Nicorette, which tastes like you're chewing on ground pepper -- but it does help,' the Democratic candidate said in an interview that aired Thursday on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.' His wife, Michelle, had used his smoking as leverage when the two were discussing whether he should run for president. She would agree only if Obama agreed to give up smoking." (Obama says he's given up smoking. AP, Feb. 28, 2008.) There's a phrase for that - "pussy-whipped." The worthless lackey even has a "Quit Smoking for Obama" club on his official blog.

Elena Kagan's Secret Agenda

"Kagan, though virtually unknown outside the White House, has become the administration's lead negotiator on tobacco, crafting much of Senator John McCain's tobacco legislation. The story of Kagan's involvement in hammering out a deal with Senate Republicans illustrates just how active the administration has been in shaping tobacco legislation behind the scenes. Although [Bruce] Reed and White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles are the public faces of Clinton's tobacco team, Kagan engineered the White House's most significant win in the tobacco talks so far: convincing McCain and his fellow Senate Republicans to give the Food and Drug Administration full authority over tobacco, while keeping the administration's bureaucrats at bay." Wonderwonk. White House Watch, by Dana Milbank. The New Republic, May 18, 1998.) From 2005 to 2008, while she was Dean of Harvard Law School, Kagan was a member of the Research Advisory Council of the Goldman Sachs Global Markets Institute.

Note that if Kagan is confirmed, Harvard and Yale graduates will hold 8 out of 9 of the Supreme Court seats. And now we see the true goal of the phony "constitutional lawyers" imposed on us by the Elders of Zion at Harvard and Yale: To slavishly proclaim that any outrage the anti-smokers at the FDA wish to commit is "Constitutional." These "constitutional lawyers" are so contemptuous of the constitution, they couldn't care less that for the government to deliberately and systematically commit fraud to wage a war of cultural genocide against the people, is inherently a violation of our fundamental right to the equal protection of the law! And where are the constitutional lawyers? Nowhere to be found! That proves that this country is run not by the rule of law, but by the whims of oligarchs! And this is made even more vile from the fact that she is a smoker who whores for the anti-smokers and sells out her own kind, just like her crony, Obama, no doubt because the Elders of Zion think we're stupid sheep, who will trust them merely because they formerly smoked.

As solicitor general, Kagan signed the government's appeal to the Supreme Court of the federal lawsuit against the tobacco companies. "In asking the court to hear its appeal, the administration said the industry's half-century of deception 'has cost the lives and damaged the health of untold millions of Americans.'" The government wanted to rob smokers of $280 billion in past profits plus $14 billion to fund its hate campaign against smoking. The tobacco companies said that the courts' decision to brand their statements about smoking as fraudulent "unfairly denied them their First Amendment rights to engage in the public-health debate about smoking." (High court turns down both sides in tobacco fight. Associated Press, Jun. 28, 2010.) Yet the tobacco companies themselves have refused to attack the anti-smokers' scientific fraud of deliberately using defective studies to falsely blame tobacco for diseases that are really caused by infection at any time, including in this court case, and despite the overwhelming evidence in their favor!

In fact, the government failed to identify a single act of scientific fraud or racketeering supposedly perpetrated by the defendants.

In fact, for the last six decades, it is the United States goverment itself which has engaged in deliberate, systematic scientific fraud, to deceive the public about the dangers of smoking and secondhand smoke, to wrongfully deprive smokers of liberty, and to inflict extortionate taxes - at the direct instigation of the so-called public health groups involved in the case - the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights, and Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund, and with the collusion of the mass media.

Obama's Puppet-Masters' Fraudulent Theory of "Constitutional Law"

Harvard University utilizes fakers and frauds to push its political agenda of health fascism. Here, a "constitutional lawyer" with the reasoning power of a kindergartener, and a fake economist who pulls numbers out of his rear end, attempt to rationalize the unconstitutional individual mandate.

They mischaracterize the issue by pretending that the only Constitutional concern of the Commerce Clause is whether or not buying insurance can be characterized as an "economic activity," and that if it is, then anything goes. Their specious and self-serving line is that 'buying insurance is an economic decision. Congress has the power under the Commerce Clause to regulate economic behavior. Therefore, Congress can force people to buy private health insurance.' This is like saying that 'making a donation to the Unitarian Church is an economic decision. Congress has the power under the Commerce Clause to regulate economic behavior. Therefore, Congress can force people to make a donation to the Unitarian Church.' This is exactly the kind of incompetent and infantile tripe that law schools are supposed to educate students to think above!

They viciously lie that "the uninsured consume more than $50 billion in uncompensated care, the costs of which are passed through health care institutions to insured Americans." IN FACT, three quarters of the costs of uncompensated care have been paid for by government programs, which, unlike the individual mandate, are not unconstitutional. Nothing prevented Congress from expanding those programs or creating similar ones. Furthermore, even if all private funding for uncompensated care were recouped from private insurance payments, this would still amount to only 1.7% of private insurance premiums (Hadley et al, 2008). Meanwhile, those with health insurance have inflicted a burden of $246 billion in lost federal tax revenues due to the exclusion of employer-provided health insurance from taxable income. The cost of making up for these lost revenues is distributed across everyone, including the uninsured (Van de Water, 2009). They pretend that a miscellaneous grab-bag of rationalizations about saving some people from bankruptcy (from a single particular contributing cause, namely medical bills) and empty promises of improving workplace productivity are justifications to violate our Constitutional rights.

Continuing to evade the fact that several Consitutional means existed to fund health care for people who can't afford it, they whine about "adverse selection," and pretend that they are entitled to sacrifice our inalienable rights in the name of the financial well-being of the insurance companies! In fact, the real question that should be asked is WHY DIDN'T THEY DO IT RIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE? And the answer is clear: The health law's requirement that all approved health plans must subject their victims to so-called "wellness" programs, means tyranny over the details of our personal lives, founded on the deliberate, systematic scientific fraud of lifestyle querstionnaire studies that ignore the role of infection. These are the corrupt methods of the Harvard School of Public Health and its tools. Harvard is the mothership of the Unitarian Church, and these fraudulent methods have been chosen to impose its puritan beliefs on everyone else by disguising them as supposed "science." Due to the socioeconomic fact that poorer people are more likely to have been exposed to infection, they are guaranteed to "discover" plenty of bogus "risk factors," and NO REAL ONES! This provides the oligarchy at Harvard with pretexts to wage a war of cultural genocide, in the false names of "science" and with the power of the U.S. government.

And then these shysters and cheats, whose law has been cynically crafted to usurp absolute control over all of our lives, have the gall to simper that "To characterize the ACA as a law aimed at anything other than individual economic conduct is to fundamentally miss the point of the legislation." (Buying Health Care, the Individual Mandate, and the Constitution. By Sara Rosenbaum, J.D. [of the HSPH], and Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D. New England Journal of Medicine, June 23, 2010.) In fact, to characterize the ACA as anything other than outrageous tyranny is to miss the point of the legislation.

Traitor Republicans Promote Obamacare

The Republican organ, The Washington Times, is conditioning their audience to accept the unconstitutional individual mandate, by deliberately misrepresenting that the Democrats' prize rationalization for it, Wickard v. Filburn, permits it. The propagandist left out the key fact that Filburn was a voluntary member of a federal price stabilization program (and also revealed his true agenda by gratuitously spouting health fascist lies about pretended "unhealthy lifestyles" and health costs). He assures us that "The Wickard v. Filburn case is not a constitutional aberration. It is part of the foundation upon which modern interstate-commerce-clause jurisprudence is based." This is intended to make opponents believe that resistance is futile. (Kagan's cookbook: The joy of tyranny. By David P. McGinley. Washington Times, Jul. 13, 2010.) This is a perfect example of how we're being betrayed on purpose by those who pretend to be sympathetic.

In fact: "As a wheat grower, farmer Filburn was a willing, participating member of that class, and could be barred from growing more wheat than his allotment, regardless of how he planned to use it. Unlike farmer Filburn, however, those who decide not to purchase health insurance have not engaged in a commercial activity. Indeed, they have chosen to abstain from engaging in economic activity. In passing the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, Congress only claimed the power to regulate commercial farmers, like Roscoe Filburn, who engage in the activity of growing wheat as part of an interstate market. The statute even exempted small farms. Congress's current effort to compel all Americans to buy health insurance, whether they want to or not, is tantamount to the Agricultural Adjustment Act requiring each American, rural and city dwellers alike, to grow a particular amount of wheat."

Legal Memorandum #49, The Heritage Foundation, Dec. 9, 2009.)

These people think that all we notice is the feely-talk about tyranny, and that if they pretend to share our concerns, we'll accept them as friends, and they can manipulate us and make us swallow Big Lies! Then, they let the tyrants win by failing to mention the crucial facts, and nobody will notice the dirty trick they played! This is exactly the same dirty trick the traitorous tobacco industry lawyers have used to sell out smokers on every occasion.
