Health Care, C-Span and Other Broken Promises

How many of you would let your children, business partners, employees, or friends be consistently dishonest? Would you pay for a product that you had not seen or researched? Would you purchase a product if you knew the company was incompetent and could not deliver quality? I think not. Yet here in America we do exactly that.

In the last several days, C-SPAN has called on President Obama to televise health care discussions after Obama repeatedly promised to air live meetings. He stated:

“I’m going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We’ll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies — they’ll get a seat at the table, they just won’t be able to buy every chair. But what we will do is, we’ll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies. And so, that approach, I think is what is going to allow people to stay involved in this process.”

Current health care discussions are far from being televised on C-SPAN. In fact they are hid behind closed doors, and are bypassing committee. So much for open discussion. Although President Obama pledged otherwise, this is not the only example of broken promises.

President Obama has also made many executive declarations. For example, “When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as the president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it.” Despite this pledge, Obama signed the 1,000-page $787 billion stimulus bill on February 17, 2009. This occurred one business day after it was passed through Congress. Let’s see how long it takes him to sign the health care bill into law.

President Obama also declared to improve the economy. According to the Heritage Foundation, Obama is following the same course as the hated Bush. President Bush expanded the federal deficit by $700 billion and created an $800 billion Medicare drug entitlement. In the space of a year, Obama has added a trillion to the deficit and proposed a $634 billion down payment on new health care spending. With the health care bill looming, the federal deficit is destined to grow by trillions in the years to come.

How about Obama’s attempt to reach across the table to republicans? (i.e. Senate’s 60-39 recent health care vote.) But wait, that’s not what he wrote about in his own book The Audacity of Hope:

“Genuine bipartisanship,” he wrote, “assumes an honest process of give-and-take, and that the quality of the compromise is measured by how well it serves some agreed-upon goal, whether better schools or lower deficits. This in turn assumes that the majority will be constrained — by an exacting press corps and ultimately an informed electorate — to negotiate in good faith.”

So much for the exacting press corps, good faith, and informing the electorate! His administration even declared that Fox New Corp was not real journalism!

Despite his promise to “fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington” and to “demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent,” President Obama has done the complete opposite.

According to the Washington Post, many in Obama’s administration have supported increased taxes such as a “A European-style value added tax, or VAT.” The Post further indicated that “This tax would apply to every level of production or service, and it is beloved by politicians in Europe because it raises so much money so easily without voters noticing. Ezekiel Emanuel, a White House aide and brother of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, has advocated a 10% VAT to finance national health care.”

In addition to transparency, economic, and bipartisanship lies, here is a list of other broken promises:

  1. Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials
  2. End no-bid contracts above 25, 000
  3. Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses
  4. Eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses and start-ups
  5. Create a $3,000 tax credit for companies that add jobs
  6. Allow penalty-free hardship withdrawals from retirement accounts in 2008 and 2009
  7. Eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses and start-ups
  8. No family making less than $250,000 will see “any form of tax increase.”

Although he has broken many promises, according to President Obama has kept or is attempting to keep almost all of his socialist policies. Here is a short list of the social promises he has kept:

  1. Increase minority access to capital
  2. Expand eligibility for State Children’s Health Insurance Fund (SCHIP)
  3. Launch an international Add Value to Agriculture Initiative (AVTA)
  4. Push for enactment of Matthew Shepard Act, which expands hate crime law to include sexual orientation and other factors
  5. Champion the importance of arts education
  6. Create an artist corps for schools
  7. Create a Social Investment Fund Network
  8. Enact tax credit for consumers for plug-in hybrid cars
  9. Extend unemployment insurance benefits and temporarily suspend taxes on these benefits

Clearly, President Obama has no intention of keeping his moderate election promises. He may provide excuses, but he still would be deceiving you. For in his own words Obama boldly declared, “Understand where the vision for change comes from, first and foremost, it comes from me.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
