Gibbs: Obama-care Will Be Law Of Land

From The Hill:

Gibbs: By next Sunday, healthcare reform will be ‘law of the land’

By Walter Alarkon – 03/14/10

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the healthcare bill will pass by next weekend.

"We’ll have the votes when the House votes, I think, within the next week," Gibbs said on "Fox News Sunday."

Gibbs added that those on next week’s Sunday talk shows "will be talking about healthcare not as a presidential proposal but I think as the law of the land."

President Barack Obama will look to campaign on the new healthcare law in midterm elections, Gibbs said.

"We believe healthcare reform is going to pass, and once it passes we’re happy to have the 2010 elections be about the achievement of healthcare reform," Gibbs said.

But Republicans on Fox said there’s no guarantee the bill passes and that Democrats will benefit from it…

If Democrats do pass it, "then the American people will be the losers," said House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

"This is a trillion-dollar-bill attempting to overhaul healthcare for every single American," Cantor added…

Cantor also criticized Democrats for talking about "bending the rules" by holding a single House vote that allows passage of both the bill passed by the Senate and a package of fixes. That move, under consideration by House Democratic leaders, would keep House members from voting on unpopular parts of the Senate bill, namely special deals that were included to win over recalcitrant senators…

Let’s hope ‘Baghdad Bob’ Gibbs keeps his record of being wrong on every subject.

    ~The states have to pass laws protecting their citizens from penalties imposed by the federal government.

    ~Law enforcement must refuse to prosecute or incarcerate citizens who refuse to obey unconstitutional mandates.

    ~Citizens must protect each other from harm from the government, not side with and protect the government.

    ~States need to start implanting GPS chips on ALL federal workers entering and or working within the boundaries of their own state. If they try to implement enforcement, states need to round them up, and kick them out like you would do with another country’s ambassador.

    This is a shell bill they have the Student Loan the Senior Genocide and if you are disabled you will go along with it due to the fact the Seniors are to expensive since the Government spent their money and are now having to issue IOUs and if they kill us they will have the melting pot.

    They have the Student Loans your gun rights and freedom of choice and they have destroyed the Constitution.

    Public Option and Abortion is in it if not it will be added.
    this is a ruling Class declaring War on the American People in a attempt to go to dictatorship and if that happens there will be no elections.

    Obama has issued an order to the Governors that he would be in control of Our National Guard in case he has to call martial law now if he breaks the Constitution I would say it will be a free for all’

    Obama’s Appalling Double Standards.
    by Noah Pollak

    The Obama-Israel showdown is an example of high hypocrisy, double standards, and political stupidity, all on display for a global audience.

    As Barry Rubin reminds us:

    For more than four months the U.S. government has been celebrating Israel agreeing to stop construction on settlements in the West Bank while continuing building in east Jerusalem as a great step forward and Israeli concession deserving a reward. Suddenly, all of this is forgotten to say that Israel building in east Jerusalem is some kind of terrible deed which deserves punishment.

    Israelis are used to this pattern: give a big concession and a few months later that step is forgotten as Israel is portrayed as intransigent and more concessions are demanded with nothing in return.

    The administration is using an instance of bad timing to revisit the terms of the settlement freeze in order to accomplish what was impossible before — a freeze in Jewish construction in Obama-disapproved parts of Jerusalem. Robert Gibbs said this morning on Fox News that “condemning” such construction “is, and has been, the policy of the United States .”

    Never mind that even the PA has already agreed that these neighborhoods, such as Gilo and Ramat Shlomo, will remain part of Israel in any settlement. Chris Wallace should have asked Gibbs how he reconciles such a statement, and the administration’s behavior over the past week, with the U.S. endorsement of the settlement freeze four months ago that explicitly exempted Jerusalem . In fact, it might make sense for the Israelis to ask for such a clarification. It’s obvious that Obama is trying to change the terms of the agreement by bullying and unilateralism, not by negotiation.

    And it is important to note that the kind of rhetoric and outrage we are witnessing on Israel has never been employed by the administration against Syria, Iran, Hamas, North Korea, or any of America’s actual enemies. Regarding “announcements about expanding settlements,” a “senior Obama administration official” told Reuters that “the Israelis know the only way to stay on the positive side of the ledger — internationally and with us — is to not have them recurring.”

    Strong stuff! Yet when the administration’s effort to warm ties with Syria over the past month were greeted with a trilateral meeting of terrorists in Damascus — Ahmadinejad, Nasrallah, and Assad — including heated public denouncements of America and pledges to destroy Israel, the administration was silent. No response.

    Maybe this is because the administration is focusing on the peace process and treating Syria and Iran as back-burner problems not worthy of U.S. outrage? No, that doesn’t make sense. If this were true, the administration would have criticized the Palestinians for their far greater obstructions to the peace process. As Rubin points out:

    Even though the Palestinian Authority has refused to negotiate for 14 months; made President Brack Obama look very foolish after destroying his publicly announced September plan to have negotiations in two months; broke its promise not to sponsor the Goldstone report in the UN; and rejected direct negotiations after months of pleading by the Obama White House, not a single word of criticism has ever been offered by any administration official regarding the PA’s continuous and very public sabotage of peace process efforts.

    And as Tom Gross points out, the moment Joe Biden departed the West Bank , the PA held a ceremony to name the town square in Ramallah after Dalal Mughrabi, one of the perpetrators of the infamous Coastal Road Massacre and among the most successful terrorists in Palestinian history. This, too, goes unmentioned by the Obama administration. Palestinian celebrations of mass-murderers are not a hindrance to the peace process, but building apartments in Jewish neighborhoods is. Why doesn’t one of the intrepid Sunday morning hosts ask an administration official why this is?

    We have reached a strange new chapter in American diplomacy in which our greatest outrage and our greatest denunciations are reserved for our allies. Maybe that’s not quite right: they’re reserved for one of our allies.

      It’s all abundantly clear when you consider that the president is first a muslim. Then, when you take it a step further: A muslim who hates the United States of America, it’s even more clear.

      I have no questions.
