During Obama’s young days as a community organizer, he was very involved with SEIU, a health industry union founded in Chicago, Obama’s home town.
SEIU spent $28 million to get Obama elected, by the efforts of union president, Andy Stern and 2.2 million members.
Obama took the presidency in 2009.
A social worker, Andy Stern, was made head of SEIU from 1996 to 2010.
From 2009 to 2010, Andy Stern’s last year at SEIU and Obama’s first year in the White House, Stern visited the White House 22 times, much more than anyone else.
As president of SEIU, Stern wanted universal healthcare, insisting that HE (the union members) would never vote for any candidate who didn’t have a universal health care plan. Hence, Obamacare’s passage. Remember Stern’s 22 visits to the WH and topping the visitor’s log. SEIU used it’s 2.2 million members to raise funds and provide people to hit the streets to promote Obama’s candidacy, as well as protestors when needed.
In 2010, Stern left SEIU and was appointed to the Board of SIGA Technologies, a company developing drugs to combat bio warfare pathogens, infectious diseases and EBOLA.
SIGA Tech is owned by the holding company of multi-billionaire Ron Perelman, who donated $50,000 to Obama’s inaugural fund (think Greek columns).
Perelman’s holding company, MacAndrews & Forbes, Inc., frequently “hires” former politicians, White House administration personnel, MONICA LEWINSKY and ANDY STERN, etc. Perelman’s company owned Revlon who took on Lewinsky when she most needed a job. Thought to be at Clinton’s request.
The passage of Obamacare seems like a payback to SEIU and Andy Stern. The forced unionization of Kaiser pre-Obamacare passage, put them in a position to benefit greatly from the law’s passage.
But why was Andy Stern appointed to the Board of SIGA? His talents are never wasted and he always has an agenda. From 2006 to 2013, SIGA was being sued by PharmaAthene. In 2011, the court ruled against SIGA and in 2013, the appeals court upheld the ruling. SIGA would have to pay, threatening SIGA’s viability.
For some reference to the rest of this compilation of facts, read this article which explains that biodefense companies depend on government contracts. They spend large sums of money on government lobbyists. So, SIGA would need government contracts and a good lobbyist and would benefit from a member with a close association to Pres. Obama – Andy Stern.

There was almost a merger between PharmaAthene and SIGA, but SIGA pulled out when it seemed their new drug might be successful and profitable. PharmaAthene sued and won 50% of the drug’s profit. SIGA told the judge this would threaten their company’s viability.
The HHS officials have been awarding government contracts to a few companies with no-bid contracts.
SIGA NEEDS a successful drug/vaccine that the government will purchase in vast quantities. Their new drugs need to be tested to earn FDA approval. They test on animals, but can’t test on humans in most cases, such as the EBOLA vaccine. This headline should concern us.
As Ebola Outbreak Expands, These Experimental Drugs Could See Action
SIGA owes a huge debt to PharmaAthene, viability is threatened, needs a successful drug, needs testing, acquires Obama’s close ally, Andy Stern, on the board of directors, AND EBOLA outbreak occurs at an opportune time for SIGA. Watch the dates of all these things. Coincidences are possible and do happen in life.
****Look at this timeline**** of the number of EBOLA outbreaks in the world and note the huge jump in numbers in 2014.
From 2013 through 2014, SIGA knew it was in dire financial trouble. By September, 2014, they filed for bankruptcy.
The major EBOLA outbreak began in 2014 and Rev. Franklin Graham brought his ministry’s Ebola-infected doctor home to the U.S. for treatment in early August, 2014. THEN Obama arranged to bring a number of Ebola patients into the U.S. afterwards. He then sent 3,000 American soldiers to Ebola-infected areas to help. All of these would need to return to the U.S. The fear of Ebola in the U.S. was hyped in America. Citizens and politicians alike, objected to bringing these patients here, for fear of a wide-spread epidemic.
An Ebola-infected Liberian man showed up at a Texas hospital for treatment where he later died. The U. S. had no stockpile of Ebola vaccines or treatments. There hasn’t been a need for one until 2014. Obama refused to ban flights from infected countries, causing a controversy over the danger that posed to Americans.
Now remember the article above, “As Ebola Outbreaks Expands, The Experimental Drugs Could See Action”.
I remind you that Senator Obama supported infanticide and late-term abortion. That is very barbaric and cruel, but it doesn’t bother him. Pretty hard-hearted and cold. Anyone who can support the brutality on a suffering infant is capable of anything.
But what about HHS officials? Would they be a party to anything unethical? They are Obama appointees, meaning he put the people who agree with him in those positions – thoughtful selections.
An article in November, 2011 says –
Obama’s Cronies: The Ex-SEIU Boss, Donor Dollars, No-Bid Contracts & Testing Anthrax Vaccines on Kids
“According to the Los Angeles Times, with the exception of existing in locked freezers in Russia and U.S. labs, the smallpox virus was eradicated in 1978. Yet, in a no-bid contract, the Obama administration has given $443 million of American taxpayers’ money for an “experimental smallpox drug” to a bio-defense company, SIGA, controlled by billionaire Democrat-donor Ron Perelman and whose board ex-SEIU boss Andy Stern sits on.”
“When SIGA was in danger of losing its grip on the contract a year ago, the officials blocked other firms from competing. “
“While the Times notes that there is no credible evidence that the threat of a smallpox outbreak is imminent and that the U.S. already owns enough vaccine to treat the entire population, the Obama administration’s ties to SIGA become even more questionable, considering the recent recommendation to start experimenting with an Anthrax vaccine on America’s children.
Read the entire short article. It’s enlightening while unnerving.
The Ebola outbreak happened at a time in SIGA’s history when it could most help them and SIGA’s players were Obama, Stern and Perelman. Is there anything in the thousands of pages of the Affordable Care Act that also benefits SIGA and these men? It is the largest Ebola outbreak in history with 24,247 cases resulting in 9,961 deaths.
Another coincidence? Look at this stock information for SIGA.
In the last twelve months, which takes us back to March, 2014, the time of the Ebola outbreak (see the CDC time chart), Perelman’s Holding Company, MacAndrews and Forbes, Inc, started buying SIGA stock. They made four buys in September and November, 2014. Ron Perelman personally purchased more than 403,000 shares. GRUBER & MCBAINE CAPITAL MANAGEMENT LLC (Jon Deroy Gruber – Founder) was selling. I found no connection to the Jonathan Gruber who crafted Romneycare and Obamacare in such a way that stupid voters wouldn’t know what hit them.
Insider trading is illegal and landed Martha Stewart in prison. So, Perelman couldn’t buy in March or earlier without being suspect. However, September and November would not likely arouse any suspicion.

In her farewell address to Congress today, former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, filibustered from the Chair, touting her accomplishments and the miraculous characteristics of Obamacare as if she was identifying her one claim to fame before she fades from the scene. Leaning into the microphone, as if in fear of someone dragging her away, she turned the occasion, which should have been the swearing-in of the new House Speaker, John Boehner, into a celebration of the election of Democrat John Kennedy as president, and her tenure of greatness as former House Speaker. It was painfully reminiscent of former Democrat President Bill Clinton’s all-afternoon-long departure from Washington, D.C.’s presidential limelight.
The Sargeant of Arms of the House, should have grabbed the hook from the coat closet and pulled her off the stage after she launched into her personal aggrandisement and embarrassing effort to appear greater than her successor, while he stood politely behind her, ever the perfect gentleman. While she behaved arrogantly, he conducted himself with humility, dismissing her distasteful mocking of his gavel choice. In her words, “It’s larger than most of the gavels here.” Perhaps he feels the need to remind the House Democrats that he now holds the power of Speaker and that the Republicans now hold the majority, since their interviews on radio and television sounded as if they were not going to acknowledge that.
In both photos, as well as in her speech today, Pelosi sends the message, “It’s all about me! It’s all about me!” Arrogance is a difficult thing to hide.
Contrast her with Speaker Boehner’s demeanor. Even after Pelosi hands him the gavel and the power and respect that accompanies it, she is STILL standing in front of him, monopolizing the podium and the microphone. Boehner’s head is down and his message in one of humbleness, hence the tears when he realizes that America has afforded him the opportunities to rise from nothing to something. He is emotional because he truly appreciates this great country, the freedom we’re all promised and his chance to make a difference in Congress for all of us. House Speaker John Boehner appreciates and loves the Constitution and is humbled by all that it guarantees. He stands there humbly as living proof.
One shows arrogance and a love for power, celebrity, and wealth. The other shows humbleness and a willingness to help others reach their goals and keep their freedom. One is haughty with nose in the air, clinging to the microphone well beyond what was necessary. The other is down-to-earth and mindful that he is no better than the rest of us.
To a thundering and very prolonged applause as he was first introduced as the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, the man, said, “It’s still just me.”Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
After last night’s election of Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts, the throne held by Teddy Kennedy for decades, thoughts turned immediately to Scott Brown’s potential to win the presidency. That’s not a well-thought-out reaction. Scott Brown was the one who took on the challenge and won, but not necessarily because he is a great Republican or even a great moral man. Most of us in the U.S. know nothing about him.
In the past, people got excited about Colin Powell and begged him to run for president as the Republican candidate before they knew much about his political beliefs or even his party affiliation. He was a handsome, well-educated, well-spoken four-star general who became very popular. As it turned out, he affiliated with the Republican Party, but was very left-leaning and moderate, opposing some of the Party’s platform, which is not helpful to achieving those goals. Eventually, he publicly endorsed the Democrat candidate for president over his own long-time friend and fellow veteran, Sen. John McCain.
In a “morning-after” interview aired on Fox News, Brown was asked if he favored the “big tent” theory for the Republican Party and he made it clear that he does. Others who have advocated this position are; Colin Powell, who voted for the Democrat in the presidential election, abandoning his own Republican party; John McCain, who lost the election because of Republicans like Colin Powell who voted against his own party; former Congressman Christopher Shays, who was defeated by the Democrat he wanted to compromise with, perhaps because there was no clear difference between the candidates; and former Sen. Jim Jeffords, who eventually left the Republican party and caucused with the Democrats. There are many others; some who are still in the Grand Old Party. Watch those still in the GOP and see if they lose their elections, leave the Party and/or vote with the Democrats.
The moral is, either you’re a Republican or you’re not. The Party has a platform – goals they are working to achieve. If you’re advocating “not” achieving those goals, why are you a Republican? Join the Party because you share their beliefs, not for the purpose of weakening their ability to accomplish their stated (and voted on) platform goals. If you don’t share those beliefs, you’re in the wrong party.
Some have championed the virtue of “compromise”. You should compromise when you’re out with friends and some want to eat Mexican food, while others want Italian food. You should never compromise on your core values, your moral values, your principles. You should never sell your values for some benefit, which politicians seem to do often. The consequences of compromising your core beliefs are, more often than not, very damaging to people and to the country.
Let’s take a wait and see attitude towards today’s winner, Scott Brown. I’m glad he won because he wants to stop the current health care debacle bill and he was our last chance for that. But President? Not so fast,Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
It’s been twenty years since Saddam Hussein massacred five thousand people, many women and children, in Halabja, Iraq, with mustard gas, a weapon of mass destruction. These were the Kurds, his own citizens. March 13, 1988 has been called Bloody Friday in Iraq ever since.
It’s been five years since “Shock and Awe” was unleashed on Iraq. President Bush has been attacked almost as much by his fellow Americans in the Democrat Party who are cheering their candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama when they pledge to immediately pull American troops out of Iraq. To set the record straight and try to stem the tide of revisionist history put forth in this election, I recommend watching this documentary video about the President and his position on Iraq. (It’s not too long.)
You will see the President riding a horse, wearing a big cowboy hat and smiling and waving as he passes by. He doesn’t care if a German calls him a cowboy. In America, that’s a compliment.
For further study:
The President says the best plan is a new government in Iraq, a government that represents and respects its people – not repress them, and isn’t a threat to its neighbors. He thanks our military as being our means. He talks of American interests.

********LISTEN TO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYw1q2Ew7Bo&feature=related After excoriating the first President Bush for not removing Saddam Hussein, he then excoriates the present President Bush for taking Saddam out. MAKE UP YOUR MIND!
THERE’S ANOTHER ANNIVERSARY THIS WEEK. MARCH 13, 1988. BLOODY FRIDAY.
NOTE TO OBAMA AND HILLARY:

Obama, you would sit down and talk with Saddam to see if you could find common ground. What can an American president find in common with a mass murderer?
When they say there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, I say mustard gas is a weapon. Killing five thousand people is a mass murder and is destruction.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
