    A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

    In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

    My sources say Americans should be very concerned about the secrecy of the obama government camps.

    “There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

    The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

    The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

    “It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

    She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

    “Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”

    She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues.

    Accountability: Two new audits reveal failures in obamaCare on a scale even we didn't think possible, with unresolved discrepancies, rules violations and technology problems that expose taxpayers to massive overpayments.

    In the first of a series of obamaCare audits, the Health and Human Services inspector general found 2.9 million "inconsistencies" in applications submitted to the federal HealthCare.gov exchange in the first five months of open enrollment.

    In other words, the Social Security numbers, income, family size, citizenship or other information applicants provided didn't match existing government data. Some 1.3 million of the problems involved citizenship, and an additional million involved income, the IG said.

    Worse, the IG found HHS was unable to resolve 2.6 million of these discrepancies because the obamaCare "eligibility system was not fully operational."

  • Land of the free? Not so much. Americans' sense of freedom drops, poll finds.

    No surprise here, not with the socialist control freaks in the White House. obamacare has a lot to do with this, ya know.

    Presidential Paternity Cover-Up? Bill Clinton Confessed He’s NOT Chelsea Clinton’s Real Father...
    Radar Online ^

    It’s the secret that could ruin Hillary Clinton’s prospective bid for The White House.

    President Bill Clinton once came clean that he was NOT in fact the biological father of the political pair’s only child, Chelsea Clinton. Even more shocking, he allegedly said the real father is the former mayor of Little Rock, Ark., Webster Hubbell, who’s also Hillary’s one-time law partner, claims former Clinton aide Larry Nichols.

    This comes at quite a sensitive time given that Hillary will soon announce whether she will run for president in 2016 and her daughter is pregnant with her first child with her husband, 36-year-old Marc Mezvinsky.

    Professors Suddenly Don't Like obamaCare Either

    You sound like a Duke University alumni.

  • Los Angeles Times ^ | June 30,2014 | JONATHAN TURLEY (Lib loon attorney)

    The D.C. Circuit Court is expected to rule any day now on the Halbig case, and supporters of obamacare are growing nervous. In January, an obamacare advocate described the Halbig case to a reporter for the Hill as "probably the most significant existential threat to the Affordable Care Act.

    All the other lawsuits that have been filed really don't go to the heart of obamacare, and this one would have." And in a fraught oral argument before the D.C. Circuit Court, the administration seemed to struggle to defend its interpretation.

    If the ruling goes against the White House, it's hard to overstate the impact. Without subsidies, consumers in 34 states would face huge additional costs and, because of those costs, potential exemptions from the law. And voters — a substantial percentage of whom have never liked obamacare — would be further alienated from the Democratic Party just in time for midterm elections.

    A ruling against the administration would mean that obama has been responsible for ordering what could amount to billions of dollars to be paid from the federal Treasury without authority. And it would mean the administration has committed yet another violation of the separation of power

    The administration's loss in the Hobby Lobby case is a bitter pill to swallow, but it is not a lethal threat to obamacare. For critics of the law, Halbig is everything that Hobby Lobby is not. Where Hobby Lobby exempts only closely held corporations from a portion of obamacare rules, Halbig could allow a mass exodus from the program. And like all insurance programs, it only works if large numbers are insured so that the risks are widely spread. Halbig could leave obamacare on life support — and lead to another showdown in the Supreme Court.

  • The public largely blames obama for the flood of children who have poured over the border in recent weeks, creating a growing humanitarian crisis, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll released Monday. The late June survey found that the public largely blames obama policies for the crisis in Iraq and believes the lost IRS emails are an administration effort to cover up wrongdoing at the agency.

    obama's VA 2 Years Too Late

    Government run health care. Pathetic, huh?

  • ACTON (CBS) – “He was steadfast. He took care of us, all of these years.”

    Suzanne Chase of Acton was talking about her husband, Doug, a Vietnam veteran who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011.

    In 2012, she tried to move his medical care to the Veterans Affairs hospital in Bedford.

    “It was so difficult for him to take the ambulance ride into Boston, we wanted to be closer.”

    They waited about four months and never heard anything. Then Douglas Chase died in August 2012.

    But two weeks ago, he got a letter, from the VA in Bedford, saying he could now call to make an appointment to see a primary care doctor.

    “It was addressed to my husband and I opened it,” said Suzanne Chase. “I was in complete disbelief.”

    The sea ice surrounding Antarctica, which, as I reported in my book, has been steadily increasing throughout the period of satellite measurement that began in 1979, has hit a new all-time record high for areal coverage.

    The new record anomaly for Southern Hemisphere sea ice, the ice encircling the southernmost continent, is 2.074 million square kilometers and was posted for the first time by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s The Cryosphere Today early Sunday morning.

    The previous record anomaly for Southern Hemisphere sea ice area was 1.840 million square kilometers and occurred on December 20, 2007.

    Global sea ice area, as of Sunday morning, stood at 1.005 million square kilometers above average.

  • obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him. Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia. The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America. All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia.

    A nightmare for obamacare supporters has been the possibility that only the sick would be left to purchase insurance through its exchanges, driving premiums up and insurers out. While the law’s boosters have been quick to dismiss the possibility that such a so-called death spiral could occur, data published in the Wall Street Journal suggest that this chain of events may not be so far-fetched after all.

    The findings are significant not just for what they say about how obamacare is working now, but also for their impact on the political debate over its future.

    At its base, the data show that people insured through the law’s exchanges have higher rates of serious medical conditions. Of the enrollees who have seen a doctor or other health-care provider in the first quarter of this year, 27 percent have significant medical problems, including diabetes, cancer, heart trouble and psychiatric conditions (ff types). That rate is substantially higher than that for patients in nonexchange market plans over the same period. And it’s more than double the rate of those who were able to hold onto their existing individual market insurance plans after obama was forced to allow them to keep them.

  • Supreme Court Rebukes obama Lawlessness
    Frontpage ^ | 6/27/2014 | Matthew Vadum

    In a humiliating rebuke to obama, the Supreme Court affirmed in a labor relations case yesterday that there continue to be constitutionally prescribed limits to the powers of the nation’s Chief Executive.

    The Court invalidated three recess appointments the constitution expert made in an attempt to unconstitutionally manipulate federal labor relations policy.

    Justices held unanimously (even obama's appointees said "enough is enough") in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning Thursday that the clown overreached on Jan. 4, 2012 when he recess-appointed three members to the NLRB without bothering to wait for the U.S. Senate to recess. obama’s goal was to pack the under-staffed NLRB with likeminded leftists and give the board the quorum it previously lacked to conduct official business.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) lauded the Court’s clampdown on “obama’s unlawful abuse of the president’s recess appointments power.”

    “This marks the 12th time since January 2012 that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the obama administration’s calls for greater federal executive power,” Cruz said. (And obama is the clown who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago. Where do ya go to get your money back?)

    Hillary Called obama ‘a Joke’ at Lunch With Pals: Book
    New York Post ^ | 6/27/14

    Hillary Rodham Clinton called obama “incompetent and feckless” and charged that he had “no hand on the tiller half the time,” during a boozy reunion with college pals, a new book claims. (Booze is a truth serum, ya know.)

    The scathing attacks came as the wine was flowing at a May 2013 dinner at Le Jardin Du Roi, a cozy French bistro near the Clinton family home in Westchester.
