  • WHITE HOUSE TELLS YOU TO TURN IN TRUTH TELLERS - ORWELL'S 1984 14 comments
    Aug 5, 2009 1:37 PM

    It is beyond belief. This is the United States President's website requesting that all emails that are contrary to Obama's healthcare spin be turned in to them.

    WHY? 

    WHAT WILL THE WHITEHOUSE DO WITH THE EMAIL ADDRESSES? 

    WILL THEY BE COMPILING AN ENEMIES LIST? aka Nixon

    OBAMA SEES HIS SOCIALIST MASTER PLAN STARTING TO FAIL. THE TRUTH TELLERS ARE THE ENEMY.

    LET'S CLOG THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS WITH SPAM AND ANY OTHER BS YOU CAN THINK OF.

    BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING

    Facts Are Stubborn Things
    Posted by Macon Phillips

    Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."

    Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

    In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to "eliminate" private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

    For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them.  He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

    There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

    James, are you starting to lose it?

     

    They just want help in keeping tract of all the BS and lies out there, from people who are intentionally putting out BS and lies.

     

    And you think this is Big Brother?

     

    I generally like your posts, but I'm starting to wonder about you.

    For nearly 40 years I have seen liberal socialists denying the obvious inevitable next step down the the slippery slope they are advocating. "That will never happen!", they object. "Stop exaggerating!" 5-10 years later EXACTLY that thing happens, as any idiot with open eyes could have foreseen and as a lot of people who are not idiots warned about from the beginning. "4 legs good, 2 legs bad will NEVER become 4 legs good, 2 legs better." But it invariably does come to that.

     

    Macon Phillips claims Obama never said he would "eliminate" private coverage. A true statement would be, "Obama said he would not eliminate private coverage, yet." Slippery slopes have to be travelled one step at a time.

    Author’s reply » Keeping track of people who disagree with you. Does Obama have a monopoly on the truth? Is the Youtube of him giving a speech about wanting a single payer system BS and misinformation? I'm wondering about you.

    BO calling the citizens "MOBS" and attempting to intimidate them through this Gestapo type tactic is doing nothing but creating distrust of his administration and angering the masses (citizens) even more.

     

    HIS Chicago mob tactics and thuggery demonstrate his inability to even act presidental in a confrontation and I believe are going to cost him and his supporters dearly next election.

     

    Not allowing the citizens to speak, or attempting to limit that freedom through intimidation is unforgivable. We are talking about the very first amendment. It is first for a reason and is strongly supported by the second amendment. Take away the first and the second is what the masses will grab.

     

    I hope he quits this foolishness very soon. I do not want to see this country torn apart over health care reform!!!!

    Here's hoping his first term is also his last one, like Jimmy Carter. He is losing popularity. Have you heard about GOOOH? Kick em all out of the House of Representatives:

    I have been preaching this on SA since early June. I have been beaten up badly for preaching it but it IS THE SOLUTION we need.

     

    Keep preaching. We need to get the word out. I am glad others are starting to see the light.

    Have your heard of the FEMA Concentation camps, just waiting to be occupied by US Citizenry? This pre-date's Obama. This video has been floating around for several years. I don't know if it is really true, but I did check Snopes to see if it is an urban legend, and it is not listed there if you input Fema concentration camps.

    Ah, debunked on Glenn Beck show as reported on Huffingtonpost.com! www.huffingtonpost.com...

    I saw that episode of Beck.

     

    The satellite photo is an actual concentration camp in North Korea, not Montana.

     

    Got to watch out for misinformation. The left wants to point to things like this to discredit the entire argument of the other side.

    The Governmental Documents referenced are the "RX84" or "Continuity Of Government" Program written under Regan By Oliver North of Iran Contra Fame. The Triggers Are Specific With The Open Ended "Other" Included. It was written as a contingency yet seems to be gaining favor with those worried about their "Continuance Of Power".

     

    Concentration Camps - Not Yet; No Need.

     

    Privatized Prisons - Currently In Process.

     

    Military on call for "Riots" - 3Rd Armor under Northern Command, 3Rd Infantry in Georgia. Training ongoing - 82nd airborne has been involved as well.

     

    Suspension of "Due Process" and "Habius Corpus" with the "Patriot Act" simply by applying the term "Terrorist". Those who talk of the Constitution and Veterans are on the list of "Possible Domestic Terrorists". When Dissent Is All That Is Needed To Merit This Label It Will Be Too Late For Action.

     

    Dire Situations Rarely Develop Quickly - "Boiling The Frog" Is The Norm.

     

    Most of Germany had no idea what was taking place at the "Re-Education Camps" within their boarders.

     

    Things have not deteriorated into "Totalitarianism" yet. Although, The "Background Noise" coming from DC is "Disconcerting".

     

    There Is More To Know Than Can Be Known. The More You Learn The Less Certain You Will Become.

     

    The Wold Is Not Black and White - It Is The Interplay Of The "Shades Of Grey" That Make It Resolve.

     

    Humanity Is Constant - To Assume Benevolence Is Foolish.

     

    Just Because Something Seems Improbable Does Not Necessarily Mean It Is Impossible.

    You don't have to be thought of as a terrorist to have your rights clipped. For instance, it is no longer necessary for the police to read Miranda when someone is arrested, unless they were taken into custody FIRST. So, if you are arrested on the street, or in your home (like Professor Gates), the police don't have to advise you that you are entitled to a lawyer, and that you don't have to speak with them. Look at this:
