Obamacare website sharing personal data

Welcome to State run marketing. Most of us are not surprised. This regime has no shame. The only question is who is getting paid for this little action. We can be sure this is only the beginning.

The government’s health insurance website is quietly sending consumers’ personal data to private companies that specialize in advertising and analyzing Internet data for performance and marketing, The Associated Press has learned.

The scope of what is disclosed or how it might be used was not immediately clear, but it can include age, income, ZIP code, whether a person smokes, and if a person is pregnant. It can include a computer’s Internet address, which can identify a person’s name or address when combined with other information collected by sophisticated online marketing or advertising firms.

The Obama administration says HealthCare.gov’s connections to data firms were intended to help improve the consumer experience.

Daoudi’s company, Catchpoint Systems, came across some 50 third-party connections embedded on HealthCare.gov. They work in the background, unseen to most consumers.

The AP replicated the results. In one 10-minute visit to HealthCare.gov recently, dozens of websites were accessed behind the scenes. They included Google’s data-analytics service, Twitter, Facebook and a host of online advertising providers.

Congresswoman Lummis heartbreaker story with Obamacare

All right. I watched the whole Gruber hearing farce today. This sums up the whole thing.

Rep. Cynthia Lummis finishes her questioning time at the health care hearing by talking about her husband, who died from a heart attack, and the problems they had with health care.

Here he is in all his arrogance.

Gruber: ‘States against Medicaid expansion “Awesome” in their “Evilness”

What this clip shows is that Gruber really is a deluded man. He apparently believes that we should be stupid as opposed to being stupid. Those who have followed the ACA bill know that after the Feds chip in to expand State Medicaid – 90 percent the first year as I recall, it diminishes each year until the States have huge numbers of enrollees that they would be responsible for and would bankrupt each State. Meanwhile, the Medicaid reimbursement rates are so low that Hospitals and Doctors would face bankruptcy as well. A perfect storm, designed to achieve a total Federal takeover of Healthcare.

A new video featuring Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, uncovered by White House Dossier today, shows Gruber concurring that some states refusing to expand Medicaid as part of Obamacare do so out of racist motives and asserting that the refusal is “almost awesome in its evilness” and an effort to “punish poor people.


POLLACK: One of the things that’s really striking to me is, there’s is a politics of impunity towards poor people, particularly non-white poor people that – it’s almost a feature rather than a bug in the internal politics in some of these states, not to cover people under Medicaid even if it’s financially very advantageous to do so.

I think there’s a really important principle to defeat this politically, not just because Medicaid is important for people, but because it’s such a toxic political perspective. It has to be shown that that approach to politics doesn’t work, because otherwise we will really be stuck with some very unjust policies that will be pursued with complete impunity in some of these places.

GRUBER: You know, that’s a great way to put it: There’s larger principles at stake here, when these states are not just turning down covering the poor people, but turning down the federal stimulus that would come with that.

They’re not just not interested in covering poor people, they’re willing to sacrifice billions of dollars in injections into their economy in order to punish poor people. I mean, it really is just almost awesome in its evilness. And I agree, you have to recognize there’s larger principles at stake here.

Romney and Bush colluded giving $500 M a year for Romneycare

In a little reported part of the Gruber reveal is something even more disturbing. The Daily Caller is telling us all we need to know about Romney and for that matter Bush. And there is talk of running another Bush for the White House? Romney never said a peep even knowing that Romneycare was unsustainable. (Sorry folks, a crash when posting – a redo)

“George Bush said why am I sending this Democrat $500 million a year, I’m taking it back,” Gruber explained, adding “Mitt Romney to his credit went to George Bush and said, look, can we keep the money if we use it for universal coverage. And Bush to his credit said yes.”

“We realized that we can’t do this at the state level anymore,” said Gruber. “The feds are going to have to get involved.”

The story begins in Massachusetts where Gruber helped create the state’s universal health law, now known as Romneycare.

“We had a pretty powerful senator you may have heard of named Ted Kennedy,” Gruber said during an event at Simmons College in February. ”Ted Kennedy had managed to figure out a way to rip off the federal Medicaid program to the tune of about $500 million a year through a series of strange manipulations.

“Here was Mitt Romney’s dirty little secret that we don’t like to talk about in Massachusetts, which is the way we passed our law is the federal government paid for it.

Quarantined nurse versus cop killer Frein and Marital Law in NE Pa

Puma by Design has the full story on our quarantined nurse  who raised hell at the thoughts of not getting her way, who doesn’t mind putting at all of us at risk with Ebola. Meanwhile, those living in NE Pennsylvania and caught up in cop killer Frein “quarantine” otherwise known as “Shelter in Place” otherwise known as Martial Law gets zero attention. The Frein case has been going on for over six weeks.

Rich Barry, one of the residents, said he was coming home from work in New York City at 7 p.m. when police stopped him at Route 447.

“I have a wife and a 2-year-old at home and I want to see them,” he said. “I wanted to try walking back home, but an officer told me they’d put me under arrest.”

First, from Puma:

Those of us who have been paying attention the past several weeks knew something was up as we recognized the language, i.e., Barack Obama, White House, CDC, MSNBC and now Sandra Flukes’ Kaci’s talking points were EXACTLY the same, VERBATIM. (It’s an insult that they believe us too ignorant to notice.)

On top of it all, Ebola Nurse aka elitist aka Sandra Fluke, correction Kaci Hickox is a registered Progressive (and Obama shill), which explains her arrogance and overwhelming sense of PRIVILEGE.

GotNews.com by Charles C. Johnson

Initially turned down for Doctors Without Borders, Hickox applied for a position with the Centers for Disease Control’s infectious disease unit. She received that position and began a two-year fellowship in Las Vegas, NV where she currently still works.

Hickox’s travels as a nurse took her to Myanmar, Cambodia, and Nigeria and convinced her of the importance of quarantines and ‘health surveillance,’ according to the University of Texas-Arlington newsmagazine.‘I realize that we need to find better ways to improve health surveillance and outbreak response in settings with poor resources,’ Hickox said. ‘My training in the EIS with the CDC will allow me to learn the gold standard of this kind of work….’

She co-wrote an anti-pharmaceutical industry op-ed for the Baltimore Sun and advocated against policies that would have developed life-saving drugs….

Read the full story and a great read over atPuma by Design .

Now for the thousands caught up in the Frein case:

Martial law in NE PA remains over Cop Killer Frein, call it what you like

The Pennsylvania State Police are asking all residents of Barrett and Price Townships to shelter in place immediately.

Please do not go outdoors and remain away from windows or openings to the outside.

Police are in the process of searching the area.

Please stay tuned to media outlets for further information.

October 21, 2014

 

UPDATE:

This may moot the lawsuit Kaci Hickox planned to file against New Jersey, but it won’t end the debate over the proper way to deal with health-care professionals returning from contact with Ebola patients. The state of New Jersey announced that they would release Hickox from mandatory quarantine after testing negative for the disease, but the tests don’t normally indicate infection in its earlier stages

Military response team getting prepared for U.S. civil Ebola UPDATE

UPDATE: Of course you do have the authority. I am just being silly. Funny that you should raise te question. Did you ask Eric?

“We actually do have the legal authorities to do this,” a Pentagon spokesman said on Monday, one day after U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the U.S. military to form an “expeditionary Ebola support team.”

“This isn’t going to violate Posse Comitatus,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 says the Army (and later, the Air Force) may not be used to “execute the laws” of the United States.

“This is nothing more than potential support, and I stress ‘potential support,’ to civilian medical authorities — if and only if they ask for that,” Kirby said. “But there’s no violation of posse comitatus. The Northern Command commander has the authorities that he needs to get this team ready to go.” More at  CNS

Why a military response team? Why the Department of Defense? I guess we know the answer. No tin foil required. Answer is given in  the post,”What is the purpose of FEMA camps?”which follows. Martial law already commenced.

 Martial Law declared in Connecticut over Ebola, Civil Rights suspended indefintely

 Washington Examiner:

An United States-based emergency Ebola response team is being prepped, the Department of Defense said Sunday.

In response to a request by the Department of Health and Human Services, a 30-person team will be ready to “response quickly, effectively, and safely” should more Ebola cases arise inside the U.S., according to a Pentagon press release.

“Secretary [Chuck] Hagel today ordered his Northern Command Commander, Gen. Chuck Jacoby, to prepare and train a 30-person expeditionary medical support team that could, if required, provide short-notice assistance to civilian medical professionals in the United States,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in statement.

The team of 20 critical care nurses, five doctors trained in infectious disease and five trainers in infectious disease protocols will be sent to Fort Sam Houston in Texas for up to seven days of training provided by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

Once training is completed, the team will remain in a “prepare to deploy” status for up to 30 days, according to the Defense Department.

The team will not be sent to West Africa or elsewhere overseas, as it is meant only to deal with domestic Ebola-related issues.

I encourage everyone to look at the Heritage Foundation link regarding Model State Emergency Health Powers Act.. The Heritage link is not from the tin foil crowd as well. Here we go:

“Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms,” states the CDC.

Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease. More at Heritage Foundation

Just what is the purpose of FEMA camps?

Internment Camp Services Bid Arrives After NDAA

KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus.

Section 1031 of the NDAA bill declares the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allows American citizens to be arrested on U.S. soil and incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay.

A number of civil liberties groups have come out in strong opposition to the legislation, most notably the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), the nation’s oldest and largest Asian American civil and human rights organization.

In a letter addressed to Congress, S. Floyd Mori, the national director of JACL, said the NDAA is the first time that Congress has scaled back on the protections provided by the Non-Detention Act of 1971. Mori said the legislation, if enacted and put into use, would be reminiscent of the unconstitutional indefinite detention of Japanese Americans during World War II.

National Emergency Centers Act

In 2009, the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 was introduced in Congress. It mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.

In addition to emergencies, the legislation is designed to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse, as Paul Joseph Watson noted in January of 2009.

“As always, their safety and security will remain foremost on his mind,” Kirby said of Hagel.

Obama DHS Now EXPEDITING Visa Requests From Ebola-Infected Countries

Two posts today, if my earlier one wasn’t a blockbuster, this one should make us sick. Literally. Dept. of Homeland Insecurity

UPDATE: From Judicial Watch No sources other than the post. Washington Examiner now carrying the story with clip.

Obama Plans to Let Ebola-infected Foreigners Into U.S. for Treatment

Washington, DC – Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.  Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.

Back to the post:

Wondering how Thomas Eric Duncan was able to enter the U.S. while suffering from Ebola? He asked for a visa and received one in August.

In fact, the Department of Homeland Security is proudly advertising its “Ebola Outbreak-related Immigration Relief Measures to Nationals of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone Currently in the United States.”

You read that right. Not only are the Obama Democrats leaving our doors wide open to those seeking entry from Ebola-infected countries, they’re actually expediting visa requests!
