Over $5 Billion and Counting for Obamacare Websites:

You thought Healthcare.gov had problems?

A handful of state-run exchange websites—which cost nearly half a billion dollars to build—still don’t work, nearly seven months after they first went live.

Largely inoperable state exchange websites in Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon and Nevada have racked up $474 million federal tax dollars so far, Politico first reported. The costs will continue to climb as states scramble to salvage the flailing websites or transition onto the federal exchange. Continue reading »

Report: Busted Obamacare Website Cost $2.1 Billion–Twice What White House Claimed:

New data compiled by Bloomberg Government reveal that Obamacare has already cost taxpayers $73 billion, including $2.1 billion on its busted Obamacare website–a figure more than double what the Obama administration originally claimed. 

As Bloomberg notes, its “analysis shows that costs for both healthcare.gov and the broader reform effort are far greater than anything publicly discussed” and are “substantially greater than what the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) initially estimated health reform would cost by this point.” Continue reading »

US Soldiers Who Were Just Killed In Jordan Actually Worked for CIA:

On November 4, Jordanian troops shot and killed three US special forces soldiers who were described as “military trainers” at the time. The troops were killed at a checkpoint at the al-Jafr Air Base, and Jordanian officials said they didn’t stop like they were supposed to.

The situation is looking a lot more complicated now, with officials conceding that the US troops killed in the incident were actually working with the CIA in a program to train “moderate” rebels. Jordan is still insisting it was a simple checkpoint shootout gone wrong, one of those things that just happens at checkpoints. Instead of claiming the US troops didn’t stop, they’re now claiming one of their guns went off by mistake, and the Jordanian troops killed them because of heightened security. Continue reading »

Big League Lie: Trump Goes Back on Promise to Repeal Obamacare:

Reports have already begun to surface that President-elect Donald Trump has surrounded himself with establishment insiders, meaning those who voted for Trump may soon begin feeling the betrayal many Obama supporters felt when they came to learn Obama was not going to bring the change he peddled.

After meeting with Obama this week to discuss an array of presidential issues, Donald Trump made a complete U-turn on one of his biggest campaign promises.

ObamaTrade Is Dead: White House Abandons TPP As EU Halts Trade Talks After Trump Victory:

It appears the entire ‘ObamaTrade’ farce is collapsing under the weight of its secrecy and corporatocracy in the immediate aftermath of Trump’s triumph. First this morning, Bloomberg reported that EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said EU-U.S. negotiations on a free-trade agreement are on hold, and now WSJ reports that the Obama administration on Friday gave up all hope of enacting its sweeping Pacific trade agreement, denting American prestige in the regions at a time when China is flexing its economic and military muscle.

Just days after Donald Trump won the election, all of Washington’s major trade deals are dead or dying. Continue reading »

Trump Says May Keep Parts Of Obamacare:

One day after his first and only meeting with Barack Obama, Donald Trump suggested he may take a more flexible view of what to do with Obamacare. “Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.

Trump said that Obama had suggested areas of the health law that should be kept.  “I told him I will look at his suggestions, and out of respect, I will do that,” Mr. Trump said in his Trump Tower office.

Ironically, Trump’s walkback comes just day after Trump’s attacks on the health law intensified toward the end of his campaign, and comes on the same day as he suggested he may be more lenient on Dodd-Frank. At his final rally on the eve of the election in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he called for “repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare.” As we reported yesterday, according to Trump’s initial health plan, published yesterday on his transition website, the ACA would be “repealed and replaced.” Continue reading »

–  U.S. military announces that civilian casualties in Iraq and Syria are more than double previous estimate:

The number of civilians killed by U.S. airstrikes in Iraq and Syria is more than double the previous estimate, U.S. Central Command said on Wednesday, after reexamining its air campaign based on allegations from activist groups.

The announcement of 64 additional deaths brings the total civilian death toll in U.S. air attacks to 119 since the campaign against the Islamic State began in 2014, Centcom said. The command, responsible for U.S. military operations in the Middle East, is investigating other allegations.

Nigel Farage causes controversy describing Barack Obama as a ‘loathsome creature’ – and warns Donald Trump not to ‘touch’ Theresa May:

Nigel Farage has described Barack Obama as a “creature” and joked about warning Donald Trump not to “touch” Theresa May.

The interim Ukip leader said the current US President was a “loathsome individual who couldn’t stand our country.”

Mr Farage also suggested he could act as a middle man between the next Republican President and the British Prime Minister, as he called on Mr Trump to try and “schmooze” her.

 Speaking on talkRADIO , he said: “I’m now going to become a diplomat. Come and schmooze Theresa – don’t touch her, for goodness sake.”

The radio programme’s presenters said: “Only in an affectionate way – like Bush did to the Queen.” To which Mr Farage replied: “I could be there as the responsible adult to make sure everything is OK.”

President Obama Invites “Uniquely Unqualified” President-Elect Trump To The White House:

After Donald Trump stunned the world last night, President Obama, who has constantly bashed Trump saying that his rhetoric and temperament made him “uniquely unqualified” to be his successor, was forced to invite him to the White House tomorrow to begin reviewing transition plans.  This should be sufficiently awkward.

“The president invited the president-elect to meet with him at the White House on Thursday, Nov. 10, to update him on the transition planning his team has been working on for nearly a year,” the White House press secretary’s office said in a statement Wednesday.

“Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the president identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the president-elect is the next step.” Continue reading »

Lawless Obama openly calls for illegal aliens to VOTE… says they won’t be deported even if caught:

The total lawlessness of Obama and the democrats is on display yet again today as President Obama is captured in a new video encouraging illegal aliens to vote and promising nothing bad will happen to them if they do.

In this video interview with leftist Latina propagandist Gina Rodriguez, Obama declares that illegal aliens won’t be caught voting, won’t be deported and won’t be punished in any way. Even more, he’s actually encouraging illegals to vote to make sure democrats win in the election.

GR: Many of the Millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens… and I call them citizens cuz’ they contribute to the country… are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will immigration go where I live, will they come for my family, will they deport us?

Obama: Not true. And the reason is, first of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself, and there is not a situation where the voting rolls are somehow transferred over and people start investigating etc. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential in terms of who you voted for. If you have a family member who maybe is undocumented, then you have an even greater reason to vote!

Fox News contributor Neil Cavuto went understandably ballistic after viewing this view. Check out his response in this video:

Cavuto: I can’t believe I heard what I heard. The President isn’t even questioning whether the person who is an illegal is voting… it’s very clear the question is being asked about illegals voting and afraid that they might be reported to border security. You’re ILLEGAL. You cannot vote. And the President of the United States is saying don’t worry, no one will be spying on you or catching you…

Loretta Lynch ‘pleads the fifth to avoid answering questions’ on $1.7bn payments to Iran:

Loretta Lynch is ‘pleading the fifth’ to dodge questions about $1.7 billion payments made by the United States to Iran, two members of Congress have claimed.

Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Mike Pompeo wrote a letter to Attorney General Lynch Friday, accusing her of refusing to answer ‘straightforward questions’ about the payments.

The Fifth Amendment keeps people from having to be witnesses against themselves in a criminal case. Commonly, ‘pleading the fifth’ means refusing to provide information that might incriminate oneself.

The United States gave $1.7 billion to Iran in three different payments, the first of which, worth $400,000 was made in January.

Obama: “We Are The Indispensable Nation” Thanks To “The Most Powerful Military On Earth”:

As outgoing president Obama makes his final media rounds to bolster support for Hillary and to make the case for his legacy, he sat down with HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher to say that humility in foreign policy “is a useful trait” – although one wonders just when the US has been humble about interfering in foreign sovereign states’ domestic affairs –  even as he claimed that America is “an indispensable nation” that has “a lot to be proud of” in the world, thanks to having the most powerful military force.

While the interview focused on the president’s foreign and domestic problems, the commander-in-chief also shared his thoughts on why the US needs a military that costs over $600 billions a year: “The US having the most powerful military on Earth… helps up check the impulses of some other bad folks,” Obama said, giving North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his country’s nuclear weapons program as an example. What he did not add is that as a result of being virtually unopposed around the globe, the US can interfere with impunity in every nation’s affairs, and then claim moral superiority when others try to follow in its own footsteps.

Despite the United States being engaged in what it calls “reconstruction” in Afghanistan, quarterly reports on their progress doing so reveals expanding violence and deepening poverty.

Washington Times in an article titled, “Afghanistan failures rising, progress eroding 15 years after U.S. intervention,” reports that:

Opium production is up 43 percent in Afghanistan, the economy is struggling and the government has lost ground to insurgents over the last year, according to an inspector general’s report released Sunday that shows ongoing failures overshadowing the few signs of hope.

Indeed, every quarter, the “Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction,” or SIGAR, submits a report to the US Congress regarding US activities in Afghanistan regarding “reconstruction.” Continue reading »

Something Big Is Underway On All Fronts: “Within The Next Few Weeks The Future Of The United States Will Be Decided:

By Jeremiah Johnson

As of this writing, the increased U.S. troop presence in Eastern Europe includes a battalion-sized element of American troops being emplaced in the Suwalki Gap, Polish territory that borders Lithuania in a 60-mile stretch of corridor.  The Russian Defense Ministry announced that 600 Russian and Belarussian airborne troops conducted training exercises in Brest, on the Belorussian-Polish border only a few miles from where the U.S. forces are deploying in Poland.  This on the heels of Britain deploying 800 men, tanks, and jets to Estonia, along with pledges of Challenger 2 tanks, APC’s (Armored Personnel Carriers), and drones.  Two companies of French and Danish Soldiers will join the British in the deployment to Estonia.

Pepe Escobar – The real November surprise:

“As bad as it is the folks above the President make the decisions. They may have decided on Trump. These things do not happen by accident.”

Thus spoke a high-level US business mover and shaker with secure transit in rarified Masters of the Universe-related circles, amidst the utter political chaos provoked by head of the FBI James Comey’s latest bombshell.

It’s virtually established by now that US Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Comey not to release his letter to Congress. But Comey did it anyway. If he had not, and a scandal would – inevitably – spring up after the US presidential election, Lynch would be perfectly positioned to deny she knew anything, and Comey would be on the firing line.

Lavrov: US will have to negotiate with Russia, can’t act alone on global issues:

The US will have to negotiate with Russia on finding solutions to international issues as no state is now able to act alone, the Russian foreign minister said, adding that problems in bilateral relations began to mount long before the Ukrainian crisis broke out in 2014.

The international community should not play by Washington’s rules despite the US being a great power, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday, referring to a recent statement by President Vladimir Putin.

“Two or three months ago US President Barack Obama said it is they who set the rules,” Lavrov said, following a meeting with his Greek counterpart, Nikos Kotzias. Continue reading »

Obama “Meddles”, Slams FBI Director: “We Don’t Operate On Leaks”:

In an unexpected flip-flop, just two days after White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that “President Obama doesn’t think Comey tried to influence the election”  and that “Obama still believes Comey has good character”, the US president – who has expressly stated that he doesn’t wan’t to look like he is meddling – on Wednesday changed his tune, when he unleashed criticism addressed at FBI Director James Comey’s disclosure of the Bureau’s new probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

In his first public comments on the decision, Obama told NowThis News he did not want to interfere with the investigation. Yet, he did just that when he said it’s important that the public’s judgment not be colored by incomplete information, hinting that the reopening of the FBI probe should not influence voter decisions, even though it would mark the first time a candidate could become president pending an active FBI investigation, with potential criminal consequences.

“I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don’t operate on innuendo,” Obama said in the interview published Wednesday. “We don’t operate on incomplete information. We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”  Continue reading »

“Nobody Is Above The Law. Guaranteed. Full Stop.” – Meltdown At The Justice Department Exposes Obama’s Lies:

Originally posted op-ed at The Wall Street Journal,

Fewer than three of 10 Americans trust government to do the right thing always or most of the time, Gallup reports, and the years since 2007 are “the longest period of low trust in government in more than 50 years.” The details emerging about the multiple investigations into Hillary Clinton explain a lot about this ebbing public confidence in institutions such as the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

***

Start with Attorney General Loretta Lynch. A cavalcade of former Justice heavyweights are now assailing FBI director James Comey for reopening the Clinton email file, and Justice sources are leaking that the director went rogue despite Ms. Lynch’s counsel not to alert Congress so close to an election.

Will Barack Obama Suspend The Election If Hillary Is Forced Out By The New FBI Email Investigation?:

Just when it looked like Hillary Clinton was poised to win the 2016 election, the FBI has thrown a gamechanger into the mix. On Friday, FBI Director James Comey announced that his agency has discovered new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information that they had not previously seen. According to the Associated Press, the newly discovered emails “did not come from her private server”, but instead were found when the FBI started going through electronic devices that belonged to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner.  The FBI has been looking into messages of a sexual nature that Weiner had exchanged with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, and that is why they originally seized those electronic devices.  According to the Washington Post, the “emails were found on a computer used jointly by both Weiner and his wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, according to a person with knowledge of the inquiry”, and according to some reports there may be “potentially thousands” of emails on the computer that the FBI did not have access to previously.  Even though there are less than two weeks to go until election day, this scandal has the potential to possibly force Clinton out of the race, and if that happens could Barack Obama delay or suspend the election until a replacement candidate can be found?

The Top 100 Most Damaging WikiLeaks

TMR Editor’s Note:
Dear Readers,
The following list of WIKILEAKS emails is perhaps the best compilation of hard evidence of government crime and corruption ever made public in U.S. history.

Please copy and disseminate this proof of extreme criminality in the highest echelons of the U.S. Federal Government.

Be very careful not to dismiss the sheer strength of this high integrity evidence that may very well contribute to the dissolution of the US Government.  Once this confirmed proof of high crimes and misdemeanors has been officially verified by the appropriate authorities, it will serve as the basis of a mass indictment of numerous elected leaders as well as appointed officials throughout the Obama Administration.
