Public Service Announcement: ACA Open Enrollment

I haven’t talked much about the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) on his blog, but there are certainly any number of conspiracy theories around it, like the one that says everyone is required to have an RFID chip implanted in them.

While Republicans have made the repeal of the Affordable Care Act a high priority, they are having a hard time articulating just what’s wrong with it. Rather than being repealed, the second open enrollment period for enrollment for a health car plan under the exchange started yesterday, November 14, and extends until February 15, 2015.

My understanding is that if you were covered by a healthcare exchange plan in 2014, you will have to re-enroll to maintain your coverage in 2015, but if you want to know for sure, visit HealthCare.gov.

Personally, I was not affected by the Affordable Care Act in any way I could see. I kept my current health plan and doctor.

Obama hacked reporters’ computer?

Star Trek The Next Generation meets Mission Impossible

Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked, or so she says in a new book “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.” She says her phone’s acting funny. Oh, and her TV is on the fritz too. The mysterious government IP guru, “Number One,” found “classified documents deep inside her operating system” possibly put there to frame her. I might expect this story at Western Journalism (which has it) or Fox News (which has it), but I’m reading the Washington Post.

Why the intrusions? Attkisson believes it is the result of her Benghazi reporting. You remember, that scandal where nobody did anything deliberately wrong?

The story reads more like a thriller spy movie than a news story (“Suddenly data in my computer file begins wiping at hyperspeed before my very eyes”). Most of Attkisson’s security expert sources are given pseudonyms, and the one real name she gave won’t comment. It’s a serious accusation, but completely unverifiable at this point.

Obama! Kenya! Tribe! Human Sacrifice!

Shocker. Brian Reilly reveals: in March 2012 Mike Zullo was speaking to a group of influential Christians (plus Reilly and his wife) that he had asked Reilly to assemble. Zullo told them that he had received information that when Obama was in Kenya with his tribe, he attended a human sacrifice.

You can hear the story from Reilly himself at the end of the RC Radio Show, September 24, 2014. Unfortunately the show ended in mid sentence, with the most important question dangling: Did Mike Zullo pick up the check at Denny’s?

Birther issue moot: President to announce resignation in November

Can we call this a “September Fools” joke? Good satire is fun to read, and the September 1 article at National Report, “Obama To Resign January 1st Amid New Benghazi Revelations,” certainly qualifies in my opinion as good satire, but it’s disappointing when something like this gets legs and runs off on its own. You might want to read the National Report article at this point for context of what follows.

I saw it in a chain email from Sentinel Intelligence Services’ Lyle J. Rapacki, Ph.D. (member of the august Birthers from A to Z list), there attributed to a “serious writer,” Devvy Kidd,  herself a birther. Here’s Rapacki’s repackaging of the story:

Devvy Kidd is a serious writer whose articles and commentary I have enjoyed reading these past few years.  My communications with Devvy have proven her to be kind and considerate, most helpful and willing to stand and assist in the fight to maintain sovereignty and the freedoms we have been gifted by our Forefathers, and by God.  The article below is eye opening to say the least.  Shocking is more like it!  Devvy is not a conspiracy theorist nor a reactionary.  She is a thoughtful professional which makes her article all the more critical to read and ponder. 

Yeah, right.

Whatever Devvy Kidd put on her web site, it’s gone now, with only this tantalizing remnant left in Google search (but not its cache) containing exact wording from the spoof article:

The story has been forwarded and reposted on social media sites, reports Snopes.com.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Aussies got birthers!

It sounds all too familiar. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abb0tt was born in London to a British father and Australian mother. He later emigrated to Australia and became Prime Minister. The Australian Constitution requires that the MP not hold any foreign citizenships.

“Show us the renunciation papers!” say 5400 petitioners. Abbott’s refusal to provide the document raises serious questions, they say.

A birther questions his assumptions

With the notable exception of Michael Shrimpton who has not really been a mainstay of the birther movement, birthers have been remarkably consistent in their agreement on President Obama’s day of birth, August 4, 1961. No matter where in the world they think the President was born, that date has always been the date, even though it causes problems for their alternate histories. Even the Lucas Smith fake Kenyan birth certificate has that date.

Now, however, Jack Cashill raises the issue and suggests that Obama could younger by 5 years! The article, “Obama Turned 53—Or Did He?” at WorldNetDaily and his own web site, Cashill.com, is the usual collection of petty smears and catty insults. Here’s an example:

If there ever were a romance between Dunham and Barack Senior, it likely started at closing time and ended when Senior sobered up.

In reality Cashill is not really suggesting Obama is impossibly younger than it says on his birth certificate, but actually criticizing a remark Obama made in a speech in Selma in 2007 where he talks about events in Selma making his own birth possible. The discussion of the date of birth, coincident with Obama’s birth day, is nothing more than a way to make a largely-discredited smear topical again. The alleged anachronism was analyzed at Snopes.com 6 years ago, and interested readers can follow the link and evaluate their argument.
