The War Crime of Intentional Refugee Creation

[Obama and friends have created something that it is so monstrous in intent and ruthlessness that it is incomprehensible to most “normal” human beings.  The CIA has weaponized the refugees who flood the highways surrounding the live war zones, or die in great numbers, while bobbing about on the Mediterranean.  In modern Imperial warfare, they are just a free-flowing asset, that can be turned on and off whenever and wherever the Empire needs them. 

This can best be described as a reverse “human wave assault” tactic (the Chinese tactic which literally cost us the Korean War).  Waves of armed men have been replaced by mobile masses of the poorest and most desperate human beings on the face of the planet, who can be covertly directed to overrun “enemy lines,” which impede the Empire’s progress.  This strategy of using human beings as an ocean of refuse causes far more damage than could have been wrought in a controlled attack.  More important, is that it is acceptable to use brutal violence against attackers, while refugees have to be fed, clothed and cared for, in a transparent humanitarian operation.

Now we see the two major strategies of the CIA and State Dept. merging in Libya and the other puppet states of North Africa.  This is enabling a greater international strategy to legally bind the EU to American will, utilizing the terror war (which generates both refugees and new terrorists, in large numbers) to provide the human fodder needed by State Dept. in its  campaign to use refugees and the UN. The State Dept. is Washington’s “spear,” which is being wielded to create a legal mechanism for forcing European compliance with American directives, pertaining to refugees and the international migration of the unwanted.

If the new Libyan Interior minister has threatened to unleash his substantial refugee weapon against Europe, it is because that is what his international bosses want him to do next.  It is NO COINCIDENCE that a tsunami of African refugees has been set in motion upon all of the main arteries of North Africa, just as they are needed for the invasion of Europe, where Obama will use them as a living battering ram to knock-down the wall separating Africa and Europe.  Africa’s poor and destitute have long been suffering and waiting in the wings, much like the people of Palestine, who have served as everyone’s pawns, moving the international drama forward.

Libya threatens EU over African immigrants

Interior minister says Tripoli will allow migrants to “flood” Europe if it does not help Libya combat illegal entries

aljazeera

Mazek said he had just returned from France where he had asked his counterpart for help over the issue [AFP]

Libya’s interim interior minister has warned that Tripoli could “facilitate” the passage of those people seeking to get to Europe illegally unless the European Union (EU) helps it combat the problem.

“With regards to illegal immigration, I am warning the world, and the European Union in particular, that if they do not shoulder the responsibility with us, the state of Libya will take a position on this matter that could facilitate the quick passage of this flood of people through Libya since God has made us a transit point for this flood,” Salah Mazek told a news conference on Saturday.

Mazek said Libya was “suffering” because thousands of mainly sub-Saharan Africans were spreading disease, crime and drugs in the North African nation, the AFP news agency reported.

“Libya has paid the price. Now it’s Europe’s turn to pay,” Mazek added.

For years, Libya has been a springboard for hundreds of thousands of Africans seeking a better life in Europe.

Many cram into makeshift boats to attempt the perilous Mediterranean crossing to Malta or the Italian island of Lampedusa off Sicily. Hundreds lose their lives each year.

More than 22,000 migrants have arrived in Italy since the start of the year, 10 times more than the number during the same period in 2013.

Former leader Muammar Gaddafi, deposed and killed in the 2011 uprising, turned on and off the flow of illegal migrants as a way of exerting pressure on Brussels.

Shortly before the uprising erupted in February that year, he demanded nearly $7bn a year from the EU to solve the problem.

Mazek said he had just returned from a trip to France where he had asked his counterpart for help to tackle the problem, but without specifying the nature of any such assistance.

Kerry In Philippines To Seal Deal for American Re-Colonization

[SEE:  PHILIPPINES TYPHOON CAUSED BY US MILITARY WEAPON – REPORT ]

Kerry in Philippines to propel troop deal as China row simmers

AFP

US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives at Manila International Airport on December 17, 2013

Manila (AFP) – Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in the Philippines Tuesday for a two-day trip that could fast-track a deal on expanding the US military presence as a territorial dispute simmers with China.

Kerry flew to Manila as the two allies are in the final stages of hammering out a deal allowing more US troops, aircraft and ships to temporarily pass through the Philippines, where the last US bases closed in 1992.

He will also visit areas devastated by Super Typhoon Haiyan last month, highlighting a massive US humanitarian response to the disaster which contrasted with a modest contribution from regional power China.

“Kerry’s visit can be expected to act as a catalyst for change,” John Blaxland, a security and defence analyst at Australia National University’s College of Asia and the Pacific, told AFP.

“He will be eager to leverage the visit to speed up and finalise arrangements and assure the Philippines and other regional powers that the US is not just a fair-weather friend,” Blaxland said.

Kerry will meet with Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario and President Benigno Aquino later Tuesday to discuss ways for “broadening of economic and security cooperation”, the foreign department said.

“Humanitarian assistance and disaster response and cooperation on regional issues are also expected to be on the agenda,” it said in a statement. The United States, the former colonial power in the Philippines, has been the greatest contributor of aid following the typhoon which left nearly 8,000 dead or missing, and four million people homeless.

Washington deployed an aircraft carrier group and committed 1,000 Marines and $20 million in a mobilisation that served as a preview of the deal’s intensified defence engagement.

Beijing meanwhile drew scorn with an initial offer of just $100,000 to the Philippines, a Washington ally with which it is locked in a dispute over sovereignty of islands in the strategically vital South China Sea.

Del Rosario and Aquino have been rallying pro-US sentiment to blunt China’s muscle-flexing in the region.

Ian Storey, a senior fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore, said Washington’s humanitarian response could help it secure the military pact with Manila.

“America’s immediate, massive and generous support in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan could well hasten negotiations on US military rotational deployments through the Philippines,” he said.

China’s growing assertiveness in the region as well as the increasing frequency of deadly natural disasters in the Philippines “underscore the growing importance of Manila’s alliance with Washington”, Storey said.

Kerry, who is touring the Philippines for the first time since taking office, will travel to the typhoon-ravaged town of Tacloban on Wednesday.

Tensions between the Philippines and China have risen in recent years as Beijing becomes more forthright in asserting its claim over most of the potentially resource-rich South China Sea.

Earlier this year, Manila took Beijing to a United Nations tribunal over the contested Scarborough Shoal, which lies about 220 kilometres (135 miles) from the Philippines’ main island of Luzon and has been occupied by Chinese vessels since last year.

In a bid to showcase its increasing military alliance with the United States, Manila held war games near the territory earlier this year, further stoking tensions with Beijing.

China’s recent declaration of an Air Defence Identification Zone in the East China Sea — which has infuriated Japan and South Korea — has also raised concerns in the Philippines.

Storey said that while Beijing had not officially declared a similar air cover for the South China Sea “it might do so in the near future”.

“During Kerry’s visit to the Philippines, both sides will likely reiterate the importance of freedom of navigation at sea and in the air,” he said.

The United States already has a long-time ally in the Philippines — until 1992 it had a permanent military presence at two bases in the island nation.

The bases were closed amid nationalist opposition, but the current administration led by Aquino has repeatedly said it wants to build a stronger alliance with the US.

Is Using the World’s Most Powerful Military Force To Punish Civilian Populations, “War” Or State Terrorism?

FOR SOME REASON,

The Powers That Be decided to trash this post, since someone deleted all of the commentary and image previously posted here.  Normally I copy my posts before hitting the post button….Screwed-up here.  I will try to recapture that which was lost.

[The following is a welcome admission by the Establishment press that our wars have been unmitigated disasters, but it is also very deceptive, falling far short of acceptable standards of journalistic integrity.  Despite the long-overdue admission that are wars have been failed efforts, this article is what is known as “limited hangout” propaganda, telling partial truths as a means for concealing more revelatory damning truths.  In this case, the writer wants his readers to begin to see our wars as huge “mistakes,” human-error caused disasters, rather than criminal wars of aggression.   The cold hard truth is that all of our wars have been resounding successes, judging by Pentagon/CIA standards.  The disastrous end-products of these wars was the intended result for all of them, destroying the Muslim countries that refused to follow American dictation.  We fully intended for the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Pakistanis, Yemenis, Syrians, Libyans and all of the rest of America’s perceived “enemies,” to experience unimaginable human suffering on a scale far greater than that which has been experienced so far.  In addition to all of this, the Imperial plan was to take advantage of the rising chorus of humanity, urging that we remedy all of this misery, as an excuse for inflicting even greater suffering and indignation on these populations under the guise of “humanitarian relief.”]    

 

“US ‘humanitarian interventionism’ is the official cover story for the planned destruction of governments and the sustained, relentless punishment of the people who supported those governments…plain and simple.

American foreign policy under Bush and Obama has been a concentrated effort to inflict maximum suffering upon civilian populations, under the cover of pretending to “help” them. America’s foreign policy is criminal…far worse than the alleged ‘crimes against humanity’ which Syria allegedly committed. The chaotic deadly conditions left in the wakes of these criminal wars have affected all of humanity and pushed civilization to the brink of complete collapse. This,makes America’s Imperial wars, by definition, ‘crimes against humanity.'”

The bloody disaster of Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan is laid bare

Bombs and militia violence make clear the folly of Britain’s wars – the removal of law and order from a nation is devastating

Demonstrators Clash With Militiamen In Tripoli

Forty-three people died on Friday in clashes between militias in Libya, as did 22 on Sunday from bombs in Iraq. In Helmand, a return of the Taliban to power is now confidently expected. Why should we care? Why should it feature on our news?

The answer is that we helped to bring it about. Britain’s three foreign wars in the past decade were uninvited military interventions to topple installed governments. All have ended in disaster.

In each case – Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan – it was easy to see evil in the prevailing regime. These are bad guys that we need to go after, said the Americans. Yet the removal of law and order from a nation is devastating, however cruel that order may have been. Iraqis today repeat that, whatever the ills of Saddam Hussein, under his rule most ordinary citizens and their families could walk the streets at night without fear of murder or kidnap. Religious differences were tolerated. Iraq should have been an oil-rich modern state. Even the Kurds, scourged by Saddam in the past, enjoyed autonomy and relative peace.

In each of these cases Britain and its allies, chiefly America, intervened to overthrow the army, disband government, dismantle the judiciary and leave militias to run riot. Little or no attempt was made to replace anarchy with a new order. “Nation building” was a fiasco. The British bombs that flattened government buildings in Kabul, Baghdad and Tripoli did not replace them, or those who worked in them. Those who dropped them congratulated themselves on their work and went home.

It is hard to exaggerate the misery and chaos created by so-called “liberal interventionism”. It is hard to think of a more immoral foreign policy, roaming the (chiefly Muslim) world, killing people and sowing anarchy. That is why the blood-stained consequence should be splashed across headlines. Those who seek political kudos by visiting violence on foreign peoples should never be allowed to forget their deeds.

America’s Addiction to Imperialism

America’s Addiction to Imperialism

Libya 360°

“The people must demand an end to war, not because it costs trillions of dollars, but because it cost millions of lives.”

By Solomon Comissiong

The US has never gone a decade without being engaged in some sort of military conflict.”

The U.S. is Number One in weapons of war and domestic civilian gun deaths – and very little else. Historically, peace has not been a priority for the United States, which has waged war every decade since 1776. A common description for the term addiction is, the continued repetition of a behavior despite adverse consequences,or a neurological impairment leading to such behaviors…” This definition is most appropriate in regard to the world’s most destructive killing machine – the United States military. The United States government has long developed an acquired taste for war. And because much of the US population is completely obsequious to whatever their duplicitous government tells them, they, too, have become complacent to a perpetual state of war. Americans punch-drunk on nationalism fail to realize that “their” government is beholden to the interests of imperialism, not their general well being. Like well controlled puppets they chant, “USA number one”, over and over and over again, failing to ever question what “their” country is actually number one in.

The mental sickness of “American Exceptionalism” maintains the asylum known as American society. American Exceptionalism designs baseless sayings like, “USA number one.” US society is an extremely competitive and insecure environment. Ultimately, a place that encourages its citizens to ritualistically chant how good they are is not so sure of itself. Either that, or it does not wish the Hoi Polloi to ever question their government at all. The US is not number one in quality of life, education or overall healthcare. The USA is not even the happiest nation in the world, by a long shot. However, a few things the United States is number one in are: incarceration, gun related deaths and yes, military expenditure.

These are among some of the unsavory rubrics in which the US reigns supreme. If Americans meant any of those areas when they blindly chant, “USA number one”, then they would be spot on, especially when it comes to military “firepower.” With around 1,000 military bases, well over 10,000 nuclear warheads, and an almost constant state of war, the US is numero uno, without rival. The US is an imperialist monster with a voracious appetite for destruction. It has an uncontrollable appetite for war, caring little what it murders on its way toward global domination. This is evident in the vast number of civilians killed as a result of the US’s military campaigns. The vast majority of people murdered when the US decides to unleash its war machine, are, in fact, civilians. This is news to most Americans because they have been socially programmed to not even think about civilian casualties. They only worry about US military casualties as if those are the only lives that matter. Thinking about the catastrophic impact their government’s wars inflict upon innocent people, in “far off lands”, is well beyond many Americans’ social radar. This mode of thinking (or lack there of) has conditioned numerous Americans to lose vast segments of their humanity.

The vast majority of people murdered when the US decides to unleash its war machine, are, in fact, civilians.”

It is of little surprise that the United States government cares little about the “adverse consequences” that come with being constantly entrenched in war and global conflict. However, when the populace have adopted that inhumane way of thinking it paves a destructive road that we are traveling upon. The people are the ones whose responsibility it is to, not request, but demand an end to these wars of imperialism. Unfortunately, the United States’ mind control program, otherwise known as corporate media, has had a firm grip on the conscience of many Americans. This fact continues to prevent Americans from understanding that the people being terrorized by the US’s imperialist wars, are human beings – just like them. It especially prevents them from understanding that people in places like Afghanistan are, in fact, being terrorized by the US military.

Americans have bought into the orchestrated mythology that “their country,” when it enters/instigates a war, is doing so for some sort of benevolent reasons. Historically speaking, this could not be further from the truth, especially when we consider the number of civilians killed. Since World War I there has been a complete reversal of civilian deaths. During World War I, 10% of all casualties were civilians. During World War II, the number of civilian deaths rose to 50%. During the Vietnam War 70% of all casualties were civilians. In the war in Iraq, civilians account for 90% of all deaths. And when we look at the number of civilians killed by way of George Bush and Barack Obama’s drone strikes (alone), more that 90 percent of the victims have been civilians. However, don’t look at the fourth branch of the US government (the corporate media), to inform you of this. They, like the Pentagon and White House, could not give a damn about the number of innocent civilians killed. When former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (and Secretary of State) Colin Powell was asked, in 1991, about the number of Iraqi civilians killed as a result of the US Gulf War against Iraq, he simply stated: “Its not a number I’m terribly interested in.” It is important to note that the Associated Press at the time quoted US military officials in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, estimating that the number of Iraqi dead at 100,000. However, other independent estimates place the number much higher. Not surprising, the Pentagon refused to provide an estimate of the number of dead Iraqi civilians.

The shear lack of regard for human life, especially that of civilians, is akin to that of a serial killer. The US military apparatus operates like that of a pathological killing machine with lust for war. The history of the United States more than backs up this assertion, especially when we consider the fact that since the US’s “founding” in 1776, this country has been at war 216 of those years. That’s right, out of the US’s 237 year existence it has been engaged in military conflict 216 of those years. If that is not an addiction to war, this author does not know what is. The US has never gone a decade without being engaged in some sort of military conflict.

An American life is no more valuable than that of someone from any country in which the U.S. is waging war.”

United States imperialism is destroying the world, one nation at time. And within those nations are living breathing human beings. Is it really hard to fathom why many people despise the US? It has nothing to do with Americans’ so-called “freedoms” – instead, it has everything to do with the military destruction of their countries. The politicians that ultimately control the US military care little about the soldiers they command to fight in their capitalist conquests of wealth and resources. And they certainly could not give a damn about the innocent civilians in places like Libya, Pakistan and Yemen. They are not concerned with how they are perceived by much of the globe; they are only concerned with maintaining their imperialist advancements and control. You are either “with them” or “against them”; there is no middle ground. And for these reasons it should be crystal clear why people living within the United State must care.

Organized critical masses of concerned people must serve as the moral compass, and rehabilitation, needed to end the US’s addiction to war. Bluntly put, humanity depends on it. The people must demand an end to war, not because it costs trillions of dollars, but because it cost millions of lives. There is no dollar amount that can be used to measure a human’s life. All human life must be seen as invaluable, period. An American life is no more valuable than that of someone from any country in which the U.S. is waging war. The financial cost of war is enormous and is an issue, in and of itself – however, this cost pales in comparison to the cost of human life.

We must unite and be prepared to organize to end the culture of war within the US. Ending the culture of war in this country will pave the way for wars to cease globally, especially since the US global war footprint is virtually everywhere. Creating a culture of peace begins with changing our acceptance of the United States’ addiction to war. Demanding this radical, yet humane, change to take place is paramount if we are to mold a brighter future for subsequent generations. Peace starts with all of us. It is one of the most important tasks before us. We must be firmly against war, in addition to being for peace. They go hand in hand. Now is the time to start building that brighter and more humane future.

Spying eclipses migrant deaths at EU summit

[Here is a clear case where the NSA revelations on American spying have even gotten in the way of the Imperial agenda…putting some teeth into the “R2P” “Humanitarian warfare” plans of the Evil Empire (SEE:  The Obscenity of Humanitarian Warfare).  “Boat People” were supposed to be the “keys to the kingdom” in American plans to overcome the world with its strategy of “soft dictatorship,” a.k.a., “the New World Order.”  The horrendous image of dozens of women and children, the sick and the elderly, crammed into life rafts and tiny boats, bobbing about on the choppy Mediterranean Sea, was intended to produce a sufficient level of misplaced guilt upon Western audiences to move them into acceptance of American war plans for the region.  Merkel has spoiled the moment.

What has been missed, or overlooked by the global press, however, was the US/EU elitist attempt to open the floodgates of dark humanity into the spoiled, white, soft European underbelly.  Just like the unintended consequences of American inability to do whatever the Emperors want to solve the Syrian military situation to everybody’s liking, this particular tentacle of the American “Octopus” will not be able to wrap around the issue of Boat People and weaponize it into another weapon of “soft” war, at least not at this time.  This means that it will now take just a little bit longer to ignite the desired race war in Europe (SEE: THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS). 

That is the reallly tragic part in all of this, that there really are a handful of powerful individuals in the United States and in Europe who are doing everything in their considerable, pooled power, to turn whites against blacks, and vice versa, as a path to ultimate power.  Every individual with a conscience or a soul has a moral duty to do everything within their own power realm to oppose these evil men whose intent is covering the world with their evil seed.

END THE IMPERIAL WARS NOW!  Nothing else will solve either the problem of the Boat People, or put an end to the American invasion of everyone’s God-given right to privacy.]

Spying eclipses migrant deaths at EU summit

“Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003 of 18 February 2003 establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national.”

EU leaders have resumed a Brussels summit with migrant deaths in the Mediterranean and banking union on their agenda. Overshadowing the summit are claims of US spying on the cell phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

VIDEO | Journal 01:52

White House remains evasive

Leaders of the 28-member European Union were due to debate the issue of migration on Friday, facing demands to deliver reform to end boat refugee deaths.

But allegations that the US had tapped Chancellor Merkel’s mobile phone looked set to dominate day two of the summit.

Italy and Malta, which have been confronted with a number of recent boat refugee incidents along Europe’s outer border pressed for a coordinated response from all EU nations.

Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said the capsize deaths of 366 people off Italy’s island of Lampedusa on October 3 “cannot repeat itself.”

European Parliament President Martin Schulz told leaders on the summit’s first day on Thursday that Lampedusa had become a “symbol of a European migration policy which has turned the Mediterranean into a graveyard.”

US eavesdropping: What’s all the noise about?

The German government is boiling. But on the other side of the Atlantic, allegations that the NSA eavesdropped on the German chancellor’s mobile phone hardly caused a ripple. Some even say Germany should stop sulking. (25.10.2013)

Some politicians want the EU to change is so-called Dublin rules, which force asylum-seekers to first enter the bloc’s territory before being able to submit an application.

Reform ideas include the setting up of legal EU migration corridors that would put people traffickers out of business.

Foot-dragging on banking union

An ambitious timetable for banking union within the eurozone was also on the summit agenda, amid signs of integration fatigue.

A summit policymaker quoted anonymously by the Reuters njews agency said doubts were emerging over more transfers of power from the national to pan-European level after five eurozone bailouts over the past three years to member states including Greece and Cyprus.

This reluctance was compounded by fears that anti-European parties could gain ground in next year’s European Parliament election.

Anger over spying claims

EU leaders entered talks Friday still united in anger after reports during their first summit day on Thursday of widespread US spying on its allies’ communications by its National Security Agency (NSA).

In the early hours of Friday, European Council President Hermann Van Rompuy invited other EU members to join Germany and France in seeking “before the end of the year” a trust-based “understanding” with the US on intelligence gathering.

Asked about Britain’s deep intelligence ties with the US, Rompuy said all 28 EU member nations were “on board with this text.”

Earlier, Merkel had said “trust between partners” needed to be “re-established.”

French President Francois Hollande said a special EU team appointed to review leaks by the fugitive former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden needed to “accelerate their work with our American allies.”

More tensions seemed imminent with a fresh slew of damaging claims by Britain’s Guardian newspaper that the US had listened in on the conversations of 35 world leaders.

Yemen Fighting Bandar’s Boys Under the Alias of “Al-Qaeda In Arabian Peninsula,” AQAP

[Yemen, like all Muslim nations, will continue to be plagued by this militant Sunni terrorism until they approach the problem with open eyes, meaning that they are willing to acknowledge the dirty Saudi hands buying terrorism, right before their eyes.  Tribal authorities will have no better luck at getting the terror problem under control, as long as the Saudi royals have a free hand to sow the seeds of terrorism at will.

Yemen is fighting a sprawling giant

yemen-post

 Yemen Post Staff
“Prisoners who are in the jails of the oppressors because of their religion” and told them to “rejoice … as your brothers are pounding the walls of injustice and demolishing the thrones of oppression… We have not forgotten you and will never forget you,” said Nasser al-Wahishi this August. Little could Yemenis have foreseen that those words would signal an unprecedented return in violence and insecurity across the country.

Over the past three months not one week has passed without the media having to report on the targeted killing of an intelligence or military officer, the targeting of a military position, the kidnapping of a foreign worker, or even the targeting of foreign diplomats. Over the past three months alone, Yemen has seen more bloodshed and terror-related violence than in the past two years.

The intensity and frequency of the attacks has security experts both abroad and at home in Yemen, ponder over the validity and relevance of Yemen’s national counter-terror strategy. Even with the full weight of the US military, Yemen coalition government still finds itself vulnerable to al-Qaeda’s attacks, having been unable to prevent the cancerous growth of its terror cells.

Gregory Johnsen, a former Fulbright scholar based in Yemen, now at Princeton University told PBS Newshour back in August that if al-Qaeda militants were only a few hundred-men strong back in December 2009, when the group carried it out its Christmas Day attack on a US airliner, he estimated their number to be closer today to several thousands.

“What we have seen over the past three-and-a-half years is that AQAP has gone from a group of about 200 to 300 people on Christmas Day 2009 to, according to the U.S. State Department, more than a few thousand fighters today.”

Johnsen has often warned that Yemen’ strategy against al-Qaeda essentially worked to strengthen the ranks of its militants rather than weaken their ability to carry out terror operations. While such warnings have often fallen on deaf ears, in favour of a heavier military footprint, officials in Sana’a have begun to see the rational reasoning standing behind Johnsen’s thinking.

Johnsen has long called for a different, more proactive approach to counter-terrorism, one which would involve clerics and tribal leaders as opposed to the blind targeting of civilian communities on the off-chance that terror militants might be passing through.

“The only people in a position to decisively disrupt, dismantle and defeat AQAP are the tribesmen and clerics in Yemen. It is men like Salim al-Jabir, a local preacher, who have the standing and stature to take the fight to al-Qaeda,” Johnsen wrote in Bloomberg this August.

One has only to take a look at Yemen’s mounting death toll to realise that so far the real winners of the war against terror, are actually the terrorists.

Over the span of a week, al-Qaeda has killed at least three high ranking officers, wounded dozens of soldiers in drive-by shootings and flash-attacks against military outposts in the southern provinces. In the past month alone terror militants have grown as bold as to target two military bases: one in Mukalla on September 30 and one in the southern restive of Abyan on October 18th.

More troubling yet, the killing of a German diplomat in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, on October 6th by suspected terror operatives brought home the reality of radicalism, dissipating many Yemenis’ false sense of security and belief that al-Qaeda belonged to the country’s restive tribal regions and not its buzzing capital.

Short from completely cordoning off its capital and deploying an unsustainable number of security personnel to the streets, Yemen coalition government has no real mean at its disposal t protect its people and its interests.

The central government’s inherent political shortcomings, its stumbling hold over the state institutions and its internal divisions have allowed al-Qaeda to grapple Yemen by the neck and hold it hostage.

To make matters worse, recent claims made by Tribune Washington Bureau established that contrary to their public statements foreign powers have been handing wads of cash to terror militants in exchange for their nationals’ release, thus jeopardizing any hope of a financial asphyxiation. Yemen has worked hard at drying up all terror militants finding sources in an attempt to diminish its pull and zone of influence.

“Over the last two years, AQAP, as Western officials refer to the group, has extorted $20 million in ransom money, according to an estimate by Alistair Burt, who until this month was the top British diplomatic official for the Middle East,” wrote the Tribune Washington Bureau.

Burt also warned at a diplomatic meeting in New York earlier this month, “If those payments continue, AQAP’s attack capability in Yemen and against its friends and neighbours will only strengthen.”

Naser Abdel-Karim Wahishi said on the matter, “Kidnapping hostages is an easy spoil, which I may describe as a profitable trade and a precious treasure,” underscoring the profound irony and counter-productivity of Yemen’s anti-terror strategy.

So far Yemen has only managed to feed its now-sprawling monster, rather than cut off its head.

ROTHSCHILDS HIDDEN BEHIND obama AND THE GENOCIDAL OBAMACARE ?

[SEE:  Obama To Save Medicare By Killing-Off the Sick and the Elderly]

ARE JACOB ROTHSCHILD, BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD, ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD AND EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD HIDDEN BEHIND obama AND THE GENOCIDAL OBAMACARE ?

” HOW OBAMA FIRST GOT THE STACHE—THEY PLAN TO KILL YOU

- FACT SHEET: On the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 -

by Marcia Merry Baker

The United States was suffering from a crisis in health care when President Barack Obama came into office. As a result of the deindustrialization of the U.S. economy, the privatization of health care into profit-making ventures, and deregulation, both the health care system and the health of the American population was rapidly deteriorating.
Obama’s health care program, however, has made the situation much worse. If allowed to continue, it will turn the U.S. government into the enforcer of a worse-than-Hitler genocide machine.
In other locations, EIR has provided in-depth examination of the Nazi premises behind what is called Obamacare. Here we restrict ourselves to a presentation of crucial facts which show that such Nazi measures are already underway and leading toward mass death.
– I. PROVENANCE—HITLER’S T4 -

1. HITLER T4 HEALTH CARE. In October 1939, Adolf Hitler issued his official directive on selectively putting people to death, which was already underway in Germany on handicapped children and concentration camp inmates. It was titled, “The Destruction of Lives Unworthy of Life.” It arose from a prior meeting he held with medical professionals, to review “criteria” for practical and cheap methods of removing people, deemed to be “unrehabilitable” and thus burdens on the nation.
Hitler’s directive was administered out of headquarters in Berlin at No. 4 Tiergarten Strasse, where the Reich Work Group of Sanatoria and Nursing Homes, began by conducting surveys of patients nationwide, designating who was not worthy to continue to live. They were put to death; the principle involved came to be applied on a mass scale through the gas ovens at concentration camps.
2. TONY BLAIR T4 HEALTH CARE. In Britain, on April 1, 1999, the first initiative was taken by the Tony Blair government (1997-2007) in the name of health care “reform,” to institute an updated version of the Hitler T4 program: the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) was formed, to dictate what treatments would, and would not, be given to designated groups of patients in the British National Health Services (NHS), which had served the nation since the 1940s.
Blair’s health adviser to set up NICE, Simon Stevens, then moved to takedown the NHS system, by privatizing key functions, in particular through the private insurer UnitedHealth Group UK, which Stevens joined.
The record shows how the death rate has climbed for whole classes of Britons, especially the elderly and cancer patients, as a result of both NICE barring treatments, and the NHS being dismantled. For example, as of 10 years after NICE went into effect, only 40 to 48% of British men diagnosed with cancer survived, and 48 to 54% of British women; in stark contrast to Sweden, for example, where 60% of men and 61% of women survived after a cancer diagnosis.
A particular program to speed up death was put into effect called the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP). According to extensive exposes in the British press, over the 2000s, participating NHS hospitals were offered financial inducements to put patients deemed as at the end-of-life, on the LPC list, under which all treatment is discontinued, and even water and hygiene removed. The LCP started originally for cancer patients in Liverpool in the 1990s, with royal patronage; by 2012, it involved 178 NHS hospitals throughout Britain, and involved patients with any illness. On average, 130,000 persons a year were put under LCP, under the claim of saving medical resources, which as of 2012, had rewarded hospitals with at least $40 millions. An estimated 60,000 on LPC died yearly, without having given their consent to discontinue care. After storms of protest, the U.K. government in July 2013, ordered the LCP to be phased out over the next 12 months.
3. OBAMA T4 HEALTH CARE. In 2009, the Tony Blair/Hitler health concept was launched in the United States, by the new Obama presidency, as a campaign under the euphemism of care “reform,” just as Tony Blair had done in Britain. The Obama drive culminated in the March 23, 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Leading up to this were 18 months of intense propaganda, including 30 hearings and round-tables, under the cynical slogan that, under Obamacare, all Americans will get “access to care” through access to insurance.
In reality, the ACA law is made up of sets of measures to accomplish deliberate cuts in care, the destruction of the means to deliver it, and to perpetrate death. At the same time, private Wall Street insurers get Federal subsidies.
Key figures in bringing about the ACA—including several with direct involvement in imposing this on the British health system— have explicitly expressed the T4 principle, that there are “lives not worthy” to continue.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a longtime advocate for this Hitler health view, was appointed by Obama, in early 2009, as the health adviser to the Office of Management and Budget. In April, 2009, he was put on the new Federal Coordinating Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research, to devise rationalizations for cutting medical treatment. In particular, Emanuel stressed that the Hippocratic Oath caused “over-use” of medical resources, which must stop.
Peter Orszag, Obama’s first head of the Office of Management and Budget, promoted the panoply of Hitler health arguments and mechanisms. He is considered the leading architect of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB)—the analogue to NICE, called the death panel. He advocates cost-benefit analysis to justify whether medical treatment is warranted for a person. He backs the statistical “Quality Adjusted Life Years” (QALY) metric for whether it is worth it for a person to continue to live. Orszag’s London collaborator, Sir Michael Rawlins, head of NICE, pumped the QALY formula, in a Time interview March 27, 2009, saying, “A QALY scores your health on a scale from zero to one: zero if you’re dead, and one if you’re in perfect health. You found out, as a result of a treatment, where a patient would move up the scale…” and you decide, based on how much a year of life is worth, whether to permit it or not, if it takes too much away from society’s scarce resources.
Moreover, Orszag holds that, even if you are not sick, but are living “excessively long,” he advises that you should have your Social Security “adjusted” (i.e. reduced), according to a statistical formula he backs, called the “Longevity Index.”
Simon Stevens, Tony Blair’s Hitler health operative, who re-located from the U.K. to the United States in 2007, personally advised the Obama White House, on what to set up in the new health law. In May 2009, he presented a report titled, “Reducing Avoidable and Inappropriate Care,” saying that $520 billion can be “saved” in the first 10 years of a new reform act, by cutting services to non-worthy people, especially the old. Stevens is the Medicare expert at UnitedHealth Group, the largest health insurance HMO in the United States (70 million policies).
Sir Donald M. Berwick, knighted by Queen Elizabeth, for his work on NICE and “reforming” the British National Health Service, to cut out excessive lives, was given a recess appointment by Obama on July 7, 2010, to be Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). As such, he was responsible for initiating T4 policies in programs affecting 49 million older Americans in Medicare, and 48 million poor, disabled and dependent, in Medicaid. He stayed in office as long as his recess-appointment tenure would allow, leaving in December 2011, to avoid the scrutiny that would ensue in the Senate from a proper nomination to CMS head.
While in office, he moved to strike certain cancer drugs from approved Medicare reimbursement; to set up ways to financial penalize hospitals for “over-treating” patients; and limit physicians by financial penalties and pushing top-down “evidence-based” medical practice dictates. He was followed in office by Marilyn Tavenner, a technocrat for Obamacare, with a pedigree as top executive at HCA, the mega for-profit hospital chain, benefitting from the takedown of the traditional community hospital system.
– II. CONTEXT—POVERTY; ILLNESS; -

- HOSPITAL SYSTEM DEGRADED -

The ACA measures are being imposed as the final health care “solution” to the poverty, illness, and suffering already underway as of 2010, and now far worse.

1. IMPOVERISHMENT. Of the U.S. population of 314 million, roughly 135 million are working, but 20 million are working only part-time, and more than 50 million (inclusive of most of the 20 million) have work defined as low-wage (twice poverty line or lower). 52 million people are in households defined as poor ($22,000 or less income for a family of four); this is the highest ever. The number of people living in “deep poverty,” represented by an impossible $11,000 annual income for that family of four, has jumped to 20 million—one in 15 Americans.
Some 50 million must use food stamps; and 50-80% of public school students in 20 southern and western states are poor, and rely on discount and free meals through the school-lunch programs of the Agriculture Department.
In the official jobless picture: 11.8 million Americans are unemployed; 8.8 million are forced to work part-time; 4.5 million eligible workers have left the labor force or, coming of age, never entered it. This is 25 million eligible workers who need but do not have full-time work.
Due to actual inflation as defined by major categories of the market basket of living, in government statistics, the lower-income 60% of the population has experienced a drop of 10-15% in its real income since 1999. The fourth quintile has somewhat more than broken even and the top 20%’s real income has doubled. Another measure of this for the lower 60%; their actual average income is $500 more per household than in 1999; their actual expenses of living are $5,000 more.
The ratio of the total population employed is at 4-decade low, 52.4%. For young people aged 18-34, the ratio of employed has fallen from 84% in 2000 to 72% in 2012.
But if one abstracts from self-employment, and takes Americans employed full-time by an employer not themselves, that ratio is down to 43.4%. According to Gallup, which surveys it, it has fallen by 5.0% since 2010, a tremendous drop.
As to “saved” wealth (mainly houses), more than 90% of the households in the country have less wealth than they had in 2008.

2. DESPERATION—SUICIDE RATE. The U.S. suicide rate has skyrocketed. The rate at which Americans between 50 and 64 years of age kill themselves, rose 45% between 1999 and 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Women aged 60 to 64 had a rise of 60%; and men in their fifties, had a rise of 48%. The CDC researchers point out that these age cohorts of citizens are being squeezed under impossible pressures of lack of means to care for themselves, their elderly parents, and their own children, also hit by economic crisis.

3. DISEASE, DEATH RATES RISING. Sickness and mortality rates are increasing for cohorts of the population, who are poor, jobless and with no future. Many illnesses are associated with increased accident rates, obesity, malnutrition, parasites, drug and alcohol abuse, and other factors of despair, plus lack of medical treatment.
Add to this, the increased diseases associated with globalization and decline in public health services.
The CDC in September sounded the alarm about the increase in drug-resistant bacteria, in a 114-page report, Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States 2013, giving particulars for 18 microbes. Two million Americans—at the very least—are affected by one or more of the prevalent microbes each year, with at least 23,000 deaths from the infection.
Consider food-associated illnesses. 48 million Americans—one in six—are sickened each year from food-borne illnesses; 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die, as reported by the CDC. A high percentage of the microbes come in food imports, which now supply 15% of U.S. food consumption overall, and much higher percentages for particular types, e.g. seafood (85%).
Overall, even crude vital statistics for the county level, show that U.S. life expectancy is declining for millions of Americans. The July 10 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association ran coverage titled, “The State of U.S. Health”, showing that in 1,405 counties (mostly in the South, Western tribal lands, and Appalachia)—which is 45% of the total number of 3,014 counties in all 50 states—female life expectancy remained static, or declined from 1985 to 2010. In 72 of these counties, the decline was very significant—over two years or more. The same for men in poor counties. If you were born a male in McDowell County, West Virginia, in 2010, your life expectancy is 63.9 years. (The analysis covers all counties; and a set of 291 diseases. See http://www.healthmetricsandevaluation.org/)

4. SAFETY NETS FAIL—MEDICAID. There are now more than 51.5 million Americans on Medicaid, the Federal program—run in conjunction with states—enacted in 1965, as a safety net to see that people out of means for necessities—temporarily or for reasons beyond their control—have medical care. Moreover, this roster of one in six Americans being so poor as to qualify for medical care, does NOT represent the extent of low-income persons who need help, because in recent years, most state governments have imposed ever-stricter enrollment requirements, to try to keep down the numbers. Over the last 10 years, Medicaid expenditures overall grew 90%, and became in many states, the foremost budget category.
Instead of seeing this as the reflection of the economic collapse, many Congressional delegations express their version of Hitler’s health care, by opposing not only Obamacare, but also demanding cuts to Medicaid, in order to “cut the deficit” by cutting lives.

5. HOSPITAL SYSTEM DISMANTLED. Over the past 40 years of worsening economic conditions, the nationwide system of hospitals, which had been built up since the 1946 Hill-Burton Act (Hospital Survey and Construction Law), has been drastically dismantled. The advent of HMOs after the enabling act of 1973, and further deregulation allowing the predation by for-profit Wall Street hospital chains, to take over or shut down non-profit local hospitals, drove the takedown.
As of 1980, when the ratios of standard care (hospital beds and physicians per 100,000 persons) was the best, there were 5,810 community hospitals, spread over 3,000 counties, which provided 987,000 beds for 226 million people. But by 2011, the number of hospitals dropped 15%, down by 837 to below 5,000. The number of beds dropped by 20%, down by 189,000, to 798,000. Yet there were 85 million more people to care for. The national average bed-to-population ratio fell from 4.4 per 1,000 people in 1980, down to 2.6 per 1,000 in 2011, a 41% drop.
In the course of this, waves of local, non-profit community hospitals have been taken over, scaled down, or shut, in the process of a few mega-chains—many of them for-profit—coming to dominate hospital care. This is another aspect of Wall Street. The hospital chains—six of the biggest are publicly traded—are positioning on how to profiteer, in the new corporatist/government ACA world.

6. PUBLIC HEALTH TAKEDOWN. Vital public health services by the Federal government, states and localities—from pest eradication, to food safety monitoring—have been cut back drastically in the last few years, under attempts at cutting government functions to try to “balance the budget” on Wall Street terms.
For example, federal aid has dropped for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s division, Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Infectious Disease, down from around $35 million yearly in the early 200s, down to $10 million by 2012. Among many other things, this is the agency supplying resources for fighting mosquito-borne diseases, such as West Nile Fever, which surged back this Summer.
– III. OBAMACARE KILLER MEASURES -

1. SHUT DOWN HOSPITALS. The U.S. hospital-centered health care system, already contracting, is now under assault from multiple Obamacare measures.
Overall, Obamacare identifies cuts of $716 billion over 10 years in cuts to Medicare, as well as cuts in other programs. Much of this directly and indirectly hits hospitals.

* Penalize readmissions. Financial penalties against hospitals are in effect for their too-frequent re-admission of sick patients. Since October 2012, hospital rates of re-admission are reported quarterly and evaluated. A rate considered too high results in docking Medicare payments to the hospital. The cut is up to 1% in FY 2013; up to 2% the next year; and 3% thereafter.
On Sept. 30, 2013, the end of the first year of the ACA Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP), 2,225 hospitals were penalized a total of $227 million, according to Kaiser Health news.
The intent was clear right from the state. As of the first quarter of the program, of the 3,282 hospitals in the HRRP, fully 66.7%, or 2,189 facilities suffered a cut in Medicare payments. Teaching hospitals, which tend to have complex cases of elderly patients, and safety-net hospitals serving the poor, predictably have the most need for re-admissions, and they are reeling from the cuts. HRRP will cut Medicare spending by $8.2 billion from 2013 to 2019, say Obamacare statisticians.

* Cut charity care. Obamacare specifies cuts in Federal aid to hospitals, which has defrayed costs of treating the uninsured poor. Starting in 2014, Obamacare will cut what is called DSP—Disproportionate Share Payments. The hospitals are to get $22 billion less over the current 10 year period, according to the American Association of Medical Colleges and the Commonwealth Fund.

* Sequester cuts. Some $95 billion in other cuts in Medicare programs, are underway, including the impact of the sequester, all of which are slamming hospitals, according to Caroline Steinberg, vice president for analysis at the American Hospital Association. In fact, a specific sequestration automatic cut has taken away $45 billion from hospitals—more than double what the Obamacare DSP charity cut was.

* Mass threat to rural hospitals. In August, 2013, the Obama Administration proposed a rule change to what is called the Critical Access Hospital (CAH) program, which would shut down hospitals in rural areas en masse. There are currently 1,332 CAH hospitals nationwide, with potentially two-thirds in line for shut down. The CAH system was set up in 199x, to act to curb closures of rural hospitals.

The way it has worked prior to the Obama proposed change, is that, under the CAH system, since 2006, state health officials designate which of their community hospitals—often in low population density areas—are critical to remain open and viable in their localities, in order to provide residents, in particular the Medicare age bracket, the physical means to receive care. The criteria include that the facility not have more than 25 beds, it be at least 35 miles distant from other hospitals, and other rubrics. These CAH facilities then get reimbursed by the Federal CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) at 101% for their Medicare-related expenses, not at any lower Medicare reimbursement rates.
But in August, Inspector General Daniel Levinson, for the Health and Human Services (DHS) Department, issued a report declaring that hundreds of these CAH hospitals no longer meet the criteria. So states should no longer have the right to designate CAH facilities; the HHS/CMS should henceforth do so, and they will disqualify many such hospitals from adequate reimbursement. This will financially ruin hundreds of rural hospitals, and cut access to care for millions of people, whether or not they may have health “insurance.” Particularly vulnerable are Iowa, with 82, and Kansas with 83 CAH hospitals.
2. DRIVE OUT DOCTORS. Under various Obamacare measures, physicians are under financial pressure and subjective coercion to acquiesce to the intent of the ACA to cut care and lives. To begin with, two-thirds of the doctors in the United States no longer practice medicine independently, but they are now in the employ of other entities—groups and hospital systems, to the point where the American Medical Association, in November, 2012, issued guidelines on how to cope with the “conflict of interest” involved—namely, where the physician wants to treat his patient according to the Hippocratic Oath, and the Obamacare system does not.
Only 36% of all U.S. practicing physicians own their own practice (in whole or in part), which is way down from 57% in 2000; and way below 85% or higher in the 1960s.
Rural areas are desperate for physicians, and the threat to shut down Critical Access Hospitals is a threat to cut off all advanced care in these localities, in particular in the farm states, where counties have a high percent of elderly.

PHYSICIAN VALUE BASED MODIFIER This program mandates that all doctors who see Medicare patients, as of 2017, will be paid by the CMS on a new basis of Federal judgment of the “quality” of their “performance,” instead of being paid according to the traditional reimbursement for actual treatment administered to patients—the examination, procedures, tests, etc. Physicians who are classified as “over-treating” will be financially penalized. There a “bonus” system for doctors considered compliant. Obamacare foresees having 500,000 doctors now working in group practice, under this program by 2017..
The system is being implemented in phases, according to what the Obama Administration announced in July, 2013:
Starting in 2015, group practices of 100 or more health professionals (doctors, nurses, technicians, social workers, etc.) will gain or lose up to 1% of their pay, depending on their rating. This will rise to 2% the following year.
Starting in 2016, mid-size physician groups (10 to 99 health professionals). They will be offered 2% bonuses, and the first-year free of penalties, to ease into the system.
Starting in 2017, the remaining physicians, in practices of 9 or fewer health professionals, will be phased in. the CMS estimates this will bring in 350,000.
A whole system of “quality” measures is pending, to rate doctors, with differing factors for each specialty. All physicians and health staff will have to file reports on every case, which in itself, will be an impossible burden for all but the large-scale practices now taking over what’s left of doctoring.
There is already an acute shortage of primary physicians everywhere, and certain specialties (obstetrics and orthopoedic) from region-to-region. In the District of Columbia itself, out of 8,000 physicians licensed to work in the capital, only 453 of them are primary-care doctors, who see patients more than 20 hours a week, according to a September, 2013 report by the D.C. Board of Medicine.
3. CUT DIAGNOSTICS. Screenings and diagnostics for diseases and conditions, and the staff and facilities to conduct them, are being denied and reduced under Obamacare. One of the methods, is the issuance of guidelines to cutback on preventive screening, by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), a pre-existing agency in the Department of Health and Human Services. Private insurers, accordingly, move to implement the new restrictions. Just two examples show the thinking.
* Breast cancer. Within three months of the enactment of Obamacare, new guidelines were, that women should get less frequent mammograms. This decree was made, despite the national concern for the fact that mammography use was already declining in the 2000s, mammography facilities were decreasing, and doctors feared a rise of breast cancer mortality rates. As of 2009, 27% of U.S. counties had no mammography facilities at all, a pattern associated with poor and rural areas.
In May, 2010, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force stated that screening mammography for women aged 50 to 74 should be every two years, not yearly; and for younger and older women, such screening should be less often, and decided on an “individual” basis only.
This went directly against the modern standard, recommended by cancer specialists, for women to have annual screenings age 50 and above; and every two years for those 40 to 49.
Since the USPSTF decree, preventive mammography rates in women in their 40s have dropped nearly 6%, as of 2012. (Mayo Clinic study).
* Upper age limits on screenings? The Task Force is considering an upper age limit for screening mammography. In The Netherlands, women over 75 are not prohibited from mammograms, but they are no longer reminded to do it, despite the fact that breast cancer for elderly women is still a clinical concern, and treatment can extend their lives.
* Prostate cancer. In May, 2012, the Task Force recommended against prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening for prostate cancer.
4. MAKE MEDICINES SCARCE. Obamacare, which empowers Big Pharma to effectively run the health system, has also given them virtual carte blanche over drugs. At present, it is presiding over a fast-worsening situation of medication shortages. This involves cancer drugs, sterile injectibles, certain anti-biotics, and many other basics. For example, in recent months, the frontline drug for tuberculosis, INH (isoniazid), has been scarce.
This is the characteristic, not the exception, under the ACA. As of July, 2013, supplies were short for 302 drugs, which is up from 211, same time in 2012.

5. CUTS TO HOME HEALTH CARE. CMS has issued plans to cutback many Medicare programs, for example home health care. There will be $100 billion in cuts over 10 years to home health care, from the combined impact of new CMS proposals and cuts already under way. Nationally, 3.5 million seniors are lined up for a 14% reduction in Medicare home health payments, potentially losing the skilled services on which they depend to live at home. The entire nationwide system of home-health agencies is jeopardized by what CMS Administrator Tavenner calls, her new plan to “re-base”the rates used to calculate funding for payments for home health care.

6. BASIC RESEARCH STARVED OUT. Funding for public medical research has fallen 20% in the last 10 years to the National Institutes of Health. This holds throughout the nation, at Federal, state and private centers, such as those working with the CDC. In particular, the pipeline is running dry for ways to treat drug-resistant microbes.
Instead, the priorities and grants for studies are concentrated in the control of Wall Street networks, through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the like. For example, the Weill Cornell School of Medicine, named for its financial patron Sandy Weill, former CitiGroup executive, is focusing priority research on “precision medicine”—the polite name for individual gene-profiling and custom-treatment for the elite. If you can pay, you can live.

7. IPAB—CUT LIVES, TO CUT COSTS, BY DECREE. The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) was authorized in 2010 under the ACA, in sections 3403 and 10320. Its purpose is to formulate specific cuts to medical care, mostly for those on Medicare—the old, in order to save money. Because of its infamous mandate, its 15 member board, which must be approved by the Senate, has not even been appointed so far. Unprecedented power is designated for IPAB, which is scheduled to go into effect in 2014. While the law is written to say that IPAB will not cut care according to costs, it will simply accomplish the same objective through application of the criterion of statistical “effectiveness,” and financial benchmarks. The Medicare program is under orders to implement whatever IPAB orders, unless those cuts are expressly overruled by a vote in Congress, which must be through a super-majority.
IPAB is modeled exactly on the 1999 agency created under the Tony Blair government, NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), which has ordered cuts in treatment by the National Health System of Britain, resulting in a record of increased death rates since then.

8. SIGN-UP PRETENSE. After only two weeks into the operation of the new online markets of obtaining insurance, the drastic malfunctioning of the system, the rate of non-signups, and most of all—the fact that 5 to 9 millions of people are known in advance to be disqualified for coverage—manifest how the process is a pretense.
The “disqualified” status hits those poor persons, who make too little annual income to qualify for a Federal subsidy on an insurance policy from the exchange—specifically, less than 138% of the official poverty line; and too much money, to qualify to enroll in Medicaid, relative to the poverty line rules in their state.
These people reside mostly in the 26 states, 17 of which are in the South, where Medicaid has not been expanded under inducement of Federal financial incentives upfront, which are to be then cut back in three years. Both the White House and the respective state Congressional leaders have known all along about these categories of people, considered “unqualified” for arrangements for medical care.
Two national estimates have been done on how many people are in this category nationwide, based on census data, plus Obamacare and Medicaid rules:
A New York Times Oct. 2 report, titled, “Millions of Poor Are Left Uncovered by Health Law,” estimates that nearly nine million are in a “gap” preventing them from any insurance. Obamacare “will leave out two-thirds of the poor blacks and single mothers, and more than half of the low-wage workers who do not have insurance…” (by S. Tavernise and R. Gebeloff).
A report Oct. 17 by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, puts the national figure at 5.2 million Americans denied health insurance coverage. The study reports:

* Texas. More than 1 million people won’t have access to insurance.

* Florida. 763,890 won’t get insurance. Also large numbers of uninsured under Obamacare are in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina.

* Tennessee. Up to 220,000 won’t get insurance.

On the technical dysfunction of the exchanges, details are provided in the Oct. 12 New York Times report titled, “From the Start, Signs of Trouble at Health Portal.” A research team (R. Pear, S. LaFranier, and I. Austen) summarized the analyses of many IT experts. The conclusion, “‘These are not glitches,’ said an insurance executive who has participated in many conference calls on the federal exchange…Interviews with two dozen contractors, current and former government officials, insurance executives, and consumer advocates, as well as an examination of confidential administration documents, point to a series of missteps — financial, technical and managerial — that led to the troubles.” In other words, planned failure is the name of the game. As the Times noted, “just a trickle of the 14.6 million people who have visited the federal exchange so far, have managed to enrol in insurance plans….” The Obama Administration refuses to say how many.

9. PENALIZE TRADE UNION INSURANCE PLANS. Trade union members covered by multi-employer plans—referred to as the Taft-Harley plans—are considered by the ACA as high-end insurance-policy holders, and as a class, ineligible for usage and benefit from the new exchanges. An estimated 26 million U.S. workers fall into this group, according to the National Coordinating Committee for Multi-employer Plans.
Additionally, in 2018 these types of insurance plans, among those considered “Cadillac plans,” are subject to a large new Obamacare tax.

10. BACK COMPANIES TO CUT WORKFORCE. Many companies and local government entities are cutting hours of employees to below 30 hours per week, to avoid the ACA mandate for providing coverage for all “full-time” employees, and making other kinds of downshifts. For example, Trader Joe’s and Home Depot are shifting part-time workers to the Obamacare exchanges.
Smaller companies are socked by the “Employer Shared Responsibility Payment” Obamacare mandate, which, under pressure, was postponed a year to 2015.

11. COST SHOCK. Insurance premium prices on exchanges vary by state, but cost shock is hitting online shoppers cross country for various types of policies. For example, in some states, rates for large and small companies, which already have gone up an average of over 20% a year for the last three years, will now jump as much as 40% the first year (2014). These costs will be passed on to their workers.

12. INSURANCE SUBSIDIES TO WALL STREET. Under Obamacare, the insurance mandate constitutes unprecedented flows to the insurance wing of the Wall Stree/London financial crowd. Dimensions of the matter are reported in Forbes, Oct. 1 (Robert Lenzer), noting that the “value of the S&P health insurance index has gained 43% this year alone.” Among the major companies, CIGNA is up 63%, Wellpoint 47%, and United Healthcare 28%. Since the passage of Obamacare in 2010, the stock values of these big firms have risen 200-300%.
– IV. WHAT MUST BE DONE -

1. The first step is to repeal the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This must taken in the course of Congressional action to restore the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, as the gateway for stopping the Wall Street crash process, and issuance of credits to rebuild the economy.
Glass-Steagall re-instatement bills are in both chambers of Congress: In the House of Representatives, HR 129 (The Return to Prudent Banking Act of 2013 ), with 75 co-sponsors, which is in the Senate as S.985 (Return to Prudent Banking Act of 2013), filed by Tom Harkin (D-Iowa); and S. 1282 (21st Century Glass-Steagall Act of 2013), filed by by Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), with nine co-sponsors.
Bills to repeal the ACA have been passed repeatedly in the House of Representatives. With passage in the Senate, the corollary measures outlined below can proceed.

2. Initiate impeachment proceedings to remove Barack Obama from office, for the crimes inherent and on record, from the ACA and his conduct in office.

3. Declare a moratorium on closures of hospitals, clinics, radiology centers, doctors practices, public health and research laboratories, and other vital parts of the health care delivery system, pending review, and initiation of a new program to build up health care delivery capacity to modern standards for all Americans.

4. Affirm and implement the priniciples embodied in the Hill Burton Act (Hospital Survey and Reconstruction Act of 1948), 42 U.S.C. 291 et seq., as the governing principles for U.S. health care policy.

5. Launch new research initiatives for advanced medical, biological and chemical research, in conjunction with a renewed drive for a nuclear fission-based economy, and soon, nuclear-fusion economic platform.

6. Activate anti-trust action throughout the health care sectors, in which facilities and services have been taken over and dominated by extensions of Wall Street operations in pharmaceuticals, hospital care, group practices of physicians, research, and other matters.
In particular, cancel the 1973 Health Maintenance Organization authorization law, and nullify subsequent laws to the same effect. This means, repeal 42 U.S.C. Section 300c, et seq.

7. Examine and act on the best way to provide health care for all Americans, under the principle of the clause in the Preamble to the Constitution, “to promote the General Welfare.”

The “Medicare for All” act in Congress, is the current foremost proposal to cut Wall Street out of looting health care and dictating death. It calls for instituting an insurance coverage system (called “single payer”)—different from that which worked in the pre-1970s/HMO period—but still aimed at seeing everyone gets treated. Those under age 65 would be eligible for Medicare coverage; premiums and practices would be set accordingly.
In recent years, Medicare’s overhead costs amount to only 3% of its expenditures, in contrast to what has been 30% overhead under the Wall Street HMO insurance system, and the fake mandate under Obamacare, which asks insurers to limit overhead to 20%.
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has a bill (HR 676—”Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act”) in the current session of Congress, with 51 co-sponsors.” http://larouchepac.com/node/28620

” United Healthcare, the largest insurer, with about 70 million insured, reported last summer that they had a particularly strong past year, with net income of $5.1 billion, up by 11% from the previous year; similarly for the others — even before the bonanza to result from the corporatist plan to force every American to buy their inflated products, beginning on October 1.
United Healthcare, it should be recalled, has as a top executive Simon Stevens, who was Tony Blair’s health policy advisor and the architect of NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) in 1999, the “reform” of the British National Health Service which imposed triage and genocide on the British people through selective denial of cancer drugs, surgeries, kidney dialysis, and other treatments. This was the model for the IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board), which is now the law of the land under Obamacare. Genocide can be profitable. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28409

” Obama’s Budget Argument for Killing People: Meet the Elephant in the Living Room

If you are fed up with all the arguments for justifying genocidal budget cuts coming from Obama and his Democrats, as well as the Republicans, consider the following. After the orchestrated government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis, the American population is now being told we have no choice but to swallow a national discussion of how to go about:

* Cutting some $100 billion per year in health expenditures via Obamacare, by wiping millions from the rolls of the insured, reducing payments to hospitals and other providers, and denying care to the elderly and sick whose lives are “not worthy of being lived”—just as Hitler did under the T-4 policy;
* Eliminating $140 billion per year through the “sequester,” half from defense expenditures and half from other budgetary items; and
* Chopping another $95 billion per year from Social Security and other entitlements, through such ruses as the so-called chained CPI.

Those items alone add up to some $335 billion per year in cuts whose predictable—and intended—effect will be genocide. And yet the Federal Reserve is bailing out the bankrupt Wall Street banking system to the tune of $1 trillion per year in Quantitative Easing. That’s three times what we are told we have to cut from the flesh and blood of our people and our productive economy! Not to mention the much larger speculative bubble of worthless international financial assets, which now totals some $1.6 quadrillion, which the British Empire says has to be saved no matter how many billion humans are killed in the process.
And yet when Lyndon LaRouche says we should stop the bailout of Wall Street, and reorganize the banking system based on the Glass-Steagall standard, people holler that he’s “over the top.” The only thing that’s “over the top” here is the damned elephant sitting in the living room. Get rid of him. ”
