The Joke’s On Us: Obama Mocks Talk of End of the World, Armageddon, Forced Health Care

Do you LOVE America?


    President Obama, in a speech in Portland, mocks opponents of the health care bill:

    Over the last year, there’s been a lot of misinformation spread about health reform. There’s been a lot of fear mongering, a lot of over heated rhetoric. You turn on the news, you’d see that those same folks who were hollering about it before it passed, they’re still hollering, about how the world will end because we passed this bill. This is not an exaggeration.

    John Baynard called the passage of this bill Armageddon. You had others who said this is the end of freedom as we know it.

    So, after I signed the bill, I looked around.

    [crowd cheers]

    I looked up at the sky to see if asteroids are coming. I looked at the ground to see if cracks had opened up in the earth. It turned out it was a pretty nice day. Birds were still chirping. Folks were strolling down the street. Nobody had lost their doctor. Nobody had pulled the plug on granny. Nobody was being dragged away to be forced into some government run health care plan.

    The joke is on the American people. There they are, folks, laughing right along with President Obama, not realizing that he is actually telling them exactly what his bill did to them and will do to them in the future. They will not believe until the socialist boot crushes their throats.

    The world as we knew it in America did end when socialized health care was passed. It is most certainly an end to the freedom we have come to know. It is, essentially, the first real step in allowing the government to take from those who have and redistribute to those who the government deems needy. There is nothing free about it, at least not to those having to give up their hard earned income to pay for those who can’t do for themselves.

    One day, maybe not today or tomorrow, or next year, but when the new health care system is on the verge of insolvency, you can be assured that they will pull the plug on granny, and anyone else who is deemed too-small-to-save.

    And, as soon as the health care policy goes active, people will be dragged, by forced mandate through the IRS first, and the criminal justice system if that doesn’t work, into a government run health care plan.

    Socialized health care is a stepping stone to even more central planning. We are already “on the brink” as our former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said, and our economy may very well fall apart even without the added pressures of universal health care. Passage of this massive tax on the American people will most definitely not help the situation. If we do experience a massive economic collapse, one could argue that it could quickly turn into Armageddon in America.

    Call it misinformation. Call us fear mongers. But it’s all in the bill – you know, the one President Obama didn’t read and the one Congress didn’t write.

      1. Meanwhile Fascists Obama, Reid, and Pelosi maintain their premium government sponsored healthcare at absolutely no cost to them. 

        Wake up citizens, your biggest threat is Washington D.C., not Al Qaeda. 

      2. Comments…..”Any evil that befalls a man is from self infliction”. Plato. Some times I wonder about these people that attend these political gatherings as they cheer at their own demise. It makes me question are these people real or paid actors. I keep hoping there’s no way people can be that stupid. Then again animals are oblivious when they’re led to the slaughter house.

      3. Revere:   The republican right are the facists. The Obama left are socialists and commies. If you are going to warn US that the “redcoats are coming” know who the redcoats are.  

        Both left and right push more government on the American people, erode the Constitution, and chip away at individual liberty and personal responsibility.  Both  advocate their own particular form of  Totalitarianism; each to our detriment.

        “One if by land. Two if by sea ….. ” Please, know the difference. (But your point is well taken.)

        The republicans and democrats are simply different sides of the same coin. Tyranny is tyranny… It doesn’t matter who is at the other end of the gun when it is pointed at you. Both are big central government advocates. Both steal from the American people – their freedoms, their money…
        and anything else not nailed down.

        We need to elect strict constitutionalists, otherwise say goodbye to the American dream.

      5. Obama in this video defines the phrase “pissing into the wind”.

        Even the simple law of “you reap what you sew” evades this Harvard trained elected official.

      6. Yo Paul Revere ~

        You are exactly right. Not only do the employees of the US Federal Government have their own premium quality health care insurance while the rest of us get Obamacare; they have their own private retirement program also. Notice that they haven’t ‘borrowed’ the so-called surplus from their own retirement plan like they have from the Social Security Trust Fund either. I wonder why???

        Aren’t these people our employees who are paid with our tax dollars? Why are we so kind to our employees while we treat ourselves like crap? Does your boss treat you better than he treats himself and his family? (That’s assuming that you still have a job!)

        If Obamacare and Social Security is good enough for us, then it should be good enough for our employees!!!! However, this isn’t going to happen anytime soon. And these are the nitwits who express surprise that the ‘natives’ are growing increasingly restless with each passing day and wonder why the jungle drums beat louder and longer into the night?? Go figure!

      7. zuk, “National Socialism” aka Nazism, is still Socialism. The idea of Fascism being extreme right and Communism being extreme left is a idea promoted by the left. It’s really Statism (them) vs. Liberty (us).  Obama’s mix of government and Wall St. power looks more like Mussolini than Lenin.

      8. TONY:  You are preaching to the choir:

        Eradicate the G-FLU:  R1D1L1   !!!

      9. POC:    There is nothing “socialist” about National Socialism. Its State welfare for corporations, in which the means of production (industry and banks) are owned by the political and financial elite of the society at the expense of the people; as opposed to Communist economic theory which is State ownership of the means of production on behalf of the people, and distribution is not made based upon individual  contribution, but rather:  “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need” i.e. redistribution of wealth. Can you say, “Obama Care?’

        In either system the average person gets little or nothing for their labor and creativity, while promotion and priviledge is reserved for loyal party members. Hope that clarifies “left” and “right’ for you.

         However, I do like your position of “them” versus “US”.

      10. These people cheering him on have no clue what is going on. The bill doesn’t take full effect until 2014. They KNOW the average mental capacity of the public is VERY short. By end of this year or next year when they begin World War 3, everybody would have forgotten about the healthcare bill. Even if WW 3 doesn’t kick off, nobody will remember anything about the healthcare bill in 2014. But when it kicks in, people will realize it is too late, they had their chance to fight it and chose instead to cheer it.

        Every bad event is going to accumulate bit by bit, until the breaking point. We’ve got hyperinflation coming, collapse of nations around the world, increased volcanoes and earthquakes activity, Iran and Israel, Bees are still dying off, continued Job losses, the coming Commercial real estate collapse, silver and gold manipulation etc.

        Armageddon is coming but the timetable is set for the elites.

      11. Comments…..Please listen to Judge Andrew Napolitano as to why the immediate exercise of state sovereignty at this time is critical to the survival of the Republic.
        In my view Judge Napolitano is the most important political commentator  / leader of our lifetimes.

      12. Right on Phil! Remember, “There are none so blind as those who will refuse to see”, and I am speaking here about the political and financial elite. They will continue their madness until the CHANGES come. Then they will be caught totally by surprise, in a living hell called DC and NYC. Their just reward I might add.

        Consider that the President thinks it is Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck who are formenting  “vitriolic partisanship”. That just shows how clueless he really is! (Just like the last idiot who lived in the White House.)  Mr. President, its everybody outside of the beltway who hasn’t drunk the kool aid!

        Hell, America is ready for a New Revolution, to re-establish the first revolution! Americans are ready to tar and feather and string up republicans and democrats alike! There’s bi-partisanship I can believe in!  If its a lawyer, lobbyist, bankster, or politician ……. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

        Now that is CHANGE I can believe in! Come, Robspierre, come!

      13. Bob, please……”judge” napolitano is a fox news wannabe.  Anyone who would make their living on fox news, (or msnbc) is an idiot and should not be listened to or taken seriously at all.

        We have to force ourselves back to the center and understand that nothing is ever as bad, or as good, as it might seem.  Notice how all the republican lawmakers are running away from the pledge to “run on repeal”?  That’s because all the outrage (ALL OF IT) was fomented solely for the purpose of maintaing insurance corporation profits.  We have massively serious problems, but health care is not one of the most serious.

        We have to be in the center.  That means some really odd positions, like the same person being all in for the Second Amendment, and the right to abortion.  We have to hope for the best and plan for the worst.  We have to formulate new social circles among the local farmers markets and the local sporting goods dealers and the local butchers and the local hardware store owners.  We have to be prepared, but not paranoid or given to wild eruptions after some numbskull posts up stuff on a website.

        We have to turn off the dumb-asses on fox and msnbc, get the fuck off the couch, and start working on things.  We are in a period of time that will end up rewarding the industrious and penalizing the lazy.

      14. In what appears to be “these troubled times” I am reminded of the phrase, “war is not the answer, for only love can conquer hate”. Buy gold, buy silver , have faith! 

      15. Jonny V:   I have to defend the Judge. He understands the basis of the Constitution (that “we the people” are “endowed by our creator”) and he understands all the nuances in the text, as our Founding Fathers intended; from a lifetime of research and deliberation as a Federal Judge on the bench. He understands individual liberty, States rights, and the enumerated, limited powers of the federal government.

        This is a man that belongs on the Supreme Court. Semper Fi

      16. Obama:” So after I signed the bill I looked around….” And the crowd goes wild.  But seriously, its troubling to look into the blank stares of the local yocals surrounding our great leader.  I imagine anyone on this site who watched that video wouldn’t be able to ignore the look in the crowds eyes. Pathetic. Sam said, “It makes me question are these people real or paid actors.” They almost seem like zombies that have been captured and domesticated by a zoo keeper.
        Regardless of how we categorize tyranny and its various isms, the fundamental scenario still involves humans dominating other humans. Essentially the subjugation of others wills. Now we must admit free will is a bitch in the sense that many people (see video above) will be “captured” and subsequently domesticated. So yeah we have to deal with armies of uninformed and state compliant zombies.
        What was that ? WW3 has begun? Gather up the peasants, uhh I mean patriots, yeah isn’t that what they like to be called? Meanwhile a propaganda blitz would be ramped up (as if it isn’t already , 24/7) to essentially “inform” the peasantry that they would need to make great sacrifices for their rulers on the East coast and that all able bodied men would need to report immediately. Not sure if it would ever transpire that way though. Who knows? One thing that makes me doubt it is that if a war of any of the “great powers” erupted it would seem like nuclear first-strike would be the way to go. Full-spectrum dominance or possibly just a pipe dream.

      17. SD Mule:  You are right of course. I love my country, but hate my government and I have faith that the American people will rise up against their oppressors and and reclaim their God given rights.

        In the meantime, I refuse to “turn the other cheek” because I know it will only give our adversaries further opportunity to rob us blind and beat us senseless.

        Take a Wall Street Bankster to lunch ….. and feed him to the fishes!!!

      18. Commentswe are on agreement that we need to make the changes to goverment; not the goverment changing us.Get back to basics and STAY TOGETHER. THANKS…..

      19. Truthfully, we taxpayers were already paying for those that didn’t have health insurance prior to the passage of the health care reform bill.  Those without get their care from the emergency room.   The cost has traditionally been passed on to other consumers through higher health care costs (have you noticed how much a band-aid costs on a hospital bill?) and taxes.  
        It is shameful that a country as rich as the US would allow its citizens to die simply because they can’t afford health care.  This bill is long overdue and will hopefully lead us down a road to a future in which individuals are not marginalized and left to die because they were laid off from their job, they choose a career that didn’t afford them group health insurance or for whatever circumstances lead them to that outcome.
        And, really? the criminal justice system? no where in the law is it stated that individuals will be arrested for not having medical insurance. 
        Besides, we have been required to have auto insurance as long as I can remember and that works pretty well for the average citizen.

      20. Susie, you are typical of a person NOT thinking with their own mind.  In your first paragraph you admit we were already paying for those who don’t have health insurance. The hospitals were compensated, last year it was a 14 billion taxpayer dollar fund and their higher prices.

        A lot cheaper than what is coming and probably many times better. There was no reason to add the coming tremondous burden unless you are out to topple the whole system.

        When the system topples, we can all be assured the darkest, bluest portions of America will reap the worse outcomes!

      21. Joe,
        I understand your naive misunderstanding of the situation.  Likely because you haven’t been exposed to facts or have chosen to ignore them like so many of your misinformed cohorts.
        Maybe you should dig a bunker and crawl in.   😉

      22. Joe,
        Well said!
        Susie you are great example of what the ObaMaoists in power want you to think.. one day you will wake up and there will be nothing for any of us. Our country and the freedoms we enjoy will be gone… replaced with a government that will make ALL of us miserable! You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Wake up Susie!! It takes courage and great leadership to make the tough decisions that need to be made. You hold the power as a voter… are you going to join us and throw these bums out or vote to keep them in power?
