We Don’t Need a Czar and We Don’t Need a Murthy Either

Having seen their attempts to blame Ebola on Republican budget cuts go up in flames, the Democrats have stumbled upon a new meme: this outbreak is the fault of Republicans because they’ve blocked Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General.

CNN host Candy Crowley on Sunday challenged Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) while asking him how Republican decisions may have negatively impacted the United States’ ability to address Ebola.

Crowley asked how the sequester hurt funding for the Centers for Disease Control and how the National Rifle Association’s opposition to President Obama’s nominee for surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, also hurt the American response.

“We haven’t had a Surgeon General — who is the nation’s leading public health official, at least the voice of it — for a year. Some Democrats and some Republicans had opposed the particular surgeon general the president had nominated. Do you think it would have helped A. If NIH and CDC had had a little more money and B. Had there been a surgeon general to kind of calm what has been the fear of Ebola?” Crowley asked on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

(Note that Crowley repeats the BS meme that Republicans have gutted NIH/CDC funding.)

First of all, the claim that we do not have a Surgeon General is bullshit, no matter how often the left repeats it. Boris Lushniak has been acting Surgeon General for the last year. Lushniak spent 16 years at the CDC, including work with their anthrax team. He’s qualified to deal with the the current crisis. In fact, I think he’s more qualified to deal with the current crisis than Obama’s nominee, who was nominated mostly for founding the political advocacy group “Doctors for Obama” (now “Doctors for America”) and his support of advancing gun control as a healthcare issue.

(Of course, Murthy’s lack of qualifications is probably seen as a qualification. Obama named an Ebola czar this weekend: a career Democratic political operative. Vox immediately defended the choice, saying we need a manager, not a doctor. Because, you know, if you have a rare and dangerous tropical disease, what you really want is a manager. Personally, I don’t think we need another czar for anything, certainly not for Ebola. Handling this is the job of CDC. Or maybe we should put these guys in charge.)

Second, I’m not sure what the Surgeon General is supposed to do here. The main thing we need is for the public to be aware of the danger and what to do if they might have Ebola. And we need hospitals to have better isolation procedures. I guess the Surgeon General could help with a public information campaign. But I don’t see that this would desperately need the particular skills of Murthy.

That having been said, the Republicans should let the Murthy nomination move forward. I’m tired of this filibustering, especially for a fairly unimportant position. Murthy may or may not be an anti-gun nut, but he’s Obama’s anti-gun nut so let Obama own up to whatever foolishness he says or does.


No bad news for the demcorats until after the election…

The sycophants in the media, in order to protect the democrats and this criminal administration in particular, are also holding off on a lot of information that would be detrimental to the collectivist powers that be. Picking a replacement for that criminal Eric Holder? Not until after the election. The Secret Service scandals? Not until after the election. The whole Ebola disaster that’s unwinding right now as the CDC crashes & burns and the powers that be pretend there is nothing wrong? Not until after the election. The fact that democrats want to give a pass to millions of illegal immigrants so they can drastically skew future elections in their favor as these people line up for their free shit? Not until after the elections. The list of things the DNC controlled media doesn’t want to talk about until after the election is long and distinguished.

And if they are not doing this delaying of bad news, they are outright faking data (unemployment numbers, economic numbers, government scandals) to fool people into thinking things are getting better than they are. If they deign to report, they provide cover. When they can, they bury the story. This despicable behavior is not news to those of us that pay close attention to the incestuous relationship between the DNC shills in the LSM passing themselves off as objective reporters and their masters in the democratic party, and par for the course. For example, bad Obamacare rate news is also being withheld from the public to prevent a negative impact to democrats, whom passed this disastrous and idiotic law on a party line vote, at the polls.

Here in the US, where the LSM thinks its job is to filter news to favor democrats and hurt republicans, we have not heard a peep about the US military investigation of the deserter the Obama administration traded Gitmo detained master terrorists for, but lucky for us the Berghdal story is covered by others outside the country. The unannounced fact, something that seems very common with anything that has detrimental impact for democrats in the coming election, is the military completed that investigation last week. But here in the US that never made the news cycle. Obviously even this compromised and PC-centric military leadership couldn’t sanitize the story enough to cover the obvious conclusion that Berghdal was nothing but a deserter and an enemy sympathizer, and that the Obama administration traded people very likely to attack the US again, to bring one of their own back.

The key to my speculation is the revelation in the MailOnline article pointing out that this information is unlikely to be reported until after the November election.

Low information voters and cheaters win the elections for the left. No wonder the left balks at any talk of actually providing some accountability and verification.

There must be an election soon

And it looks like, just as we saw in 2012, the crooks in government beholden to the crime syndicate in DC, are cooking the books again. The unemployment numbers, especially the decline we are being told has happened recently, are bullshit. Things are just as bad, if not worse, than when the social engineering scheme the collectivists straddled us with – the one that encouraged the lending industry to give money to unqualified people, and then through government agencies bundled the worthless loans and sold them at a premium to investors – collapsed our economy and housing market, and led to the election of the Chicago crime boss now running the country.

There are countless people that have been unemployed for more than 2 years, and those with 4 years or more, are at a record high. Lucky for the crooks in DC the unemployment numbers are unaffected by these people no longer on the dole. There is a reason the number of people on assistance of one kind or another is so high. We have a record number of people on Social Security disability pay, with a record number of applicants in the pipe. I have heard it said that the bulk of these people are those that have been unemployed for 2 or more years. Of course our media has no interest in investigating stories like this, because they are too busy feeding the sheep the bullshit lies the democratic party needs to sell so they can retain their hold on power and keep robbing tax payers blind while destroying the country’s future.

The fact of the matter is that our economy remains in turmoil, and that the left’s agenda is only doing more damage, but they desperately need to confuse the low information voter about this reality to keep their hold on power. The policies of the democratic party but especially those championed by president “I am going golfing or on vacation and the tax payer will pick up the tab” have been abysmal. Obamacare, all by itself, will wreak havoc on the country’s employment and employment opportunities, the ability to start and sustain economic growth, and will annihilate the healthcare system, and anyone pretending otherwise is just propagating the same lies the democrats used to get this horrible thing passed. Good things like this are happening despite the efforts of this administration and the leftards to prevent them. Can you imagine the economic boom if we had people that actually valued economic growth and individuality over vote buying collectivist schemes and scams?

Things are bad, and what the crooks trying desperately to keep their hold on power so the fleecing of the productive can continue, are doing nothing but causing damage and lying about the damage they are causing. Remember that when you vote next month.

I blame Boosh!

Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the role of picking winners & losers. Of course they can’t see the forest for the trees, even when the information stares them in the face.

Those who did find work had a difficult time with their job search and the effects of unemployment, the survey by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University found.

Nearly 40% said it took more than seven months to find employment and about one in five of laid-off workers said all they could find was a temporary position.

Almost half — 46% — of the estimated 30 million layoff victims who found new jobs said they paid less then their old ones, according to the survey of 1,153 U.S adults done over the summer.

“While job growth has been consistent, it has been insufficient to produce enough full-time jobs for everyone,” the study said.

Despite a declining overall unemployment rate, the study says, long-term joblessness has remained a major problem as the U.S. economy has slowly recovered from the deep recession, which technically ended in June 2009.

The study notes that 3 million Americans in August had been unemployed for more than six months. Although that figure has been declining, it still is high.

The effects of long-term unemployment can be traumatic, the survey found.

What a pile of bullshit. The economy has sucked, and continues to suck, despite the fucking LSM’s propaganda to the contrary, and it is directly tied to the burdensome government meddling in the private sector. Whatever good has happened comes despite the people in charge’s efforts that have tried to deny that growth (oil industry anyone?). Our system is one of crony capitalism: one where the powerful and connected buy favors and gain huge benefits from people in government that in turn profit and keep power from selling these favors. This system prevents real economic growth and indubitably destroys the middle class and opportunities for those in or trying to get into the middle class.

That’s why the number of jobless people, which should include people that no longer get counted because they are off the government unemployment benefit dole, is staggering, and the trend so ugly. Most of these new jobs the LA Times want to pretend are responsible for the faux growth the left has been peddling since black Jesus took power, have been low end service sector jobs too. And it is not just that have lost jobs that have suffered. The employed, unless they were in the public sector, have also been hammered. The reasons are blatant as well. Over regulation to serve the left’s various agendas and government power grabs masquerading as social improvement projects, things like Obamacare or the EPA’s assault on fossil fuels, all have drastic economic consequences.

If we had a republican in charge the LSM would be telling us that we were in a recession. Remember that whenever you see these fluff pieces that refuse to acknowledge that the bad times come from the left’s policies and practices.

Even about this they lied..

It looks like that Obamacare “built in” cushion that was supposed to protect those not making so much from getting raked over the coals by a government mandate they purchase healthcare, whether they could afford it or not, isn’t as reliable as the donkeys that sold it made it out to be. In fact, if you look at the new speculative numbers as shown below:

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April.

Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance.

“Health insurance is confusing enough, and now they’re adding the complexities of the Tax Code,” said Lorena Bencsik, a member of the Michigan Association of CPAs and owner of Prime Numbers in Ferndale.

When you file that 2014 tax return next year, the Internal Revenue Service will compare your actual income for the year with the amount you estimated when applying for exchange-based health insurance under the health insurance law.

It looks like the people least likely to afford this shit are about to get slammed with more costs than they could have expected. Of course, to people like me that live in the real world and not in liberal fantasy land, this was blatantly obvious. When the gangsters told you fools that they were “fixing healthcare”, making the thing affordable, accessible, and free, and all while reducing the deficit spending, those of us that can smell bullshit pointed that out, only to be rebuffed by people that want to live in fucking Candyland.

The article goes on to pretend that the issue is with life changes. Well duh! Did anyone not foresee this scenario? The advice? Report everything to the government about your life, and do so ASAP! Because after all, this government hasn’t shown any kind of propensity for abuse of power and a penchant to go after those it considers political enemies. Yeah, real sweet “free shit” deal there bozos. More intrusive government for crappy healthcare. What a trade off.
