Facts you can verify by searching on the internet. Then draw whatever conclusion you want – or not.
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.
http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703627704575298504043411376 FIGHT BREAKS OUT BETWEEN BIOFIRMS
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.

AMERICA IS IN CRISIS. WHAT CAN WE DO?
WILL POLITICIANS HEAR OUR PLEAS? DO THEY HAVE THE SOLUTIONS?
WHO CAN HELP WITH ALL THE NATURAL DISASTERS? WHAT’S COMING NEXT?
WHO CAN RESTORE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE?
WILL YOU BE PART OF THE SOLUTION?
Please join Americans from all across the nation on August 6, 2011 at Reliant Center in Houston, Texas.
The solution is recorded in 2 Chronicles 7:14,
“If My people which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
The solution is to turn from our wicked ways and humbly ask God for forgiveness. If that’s the key, then the crisis must be the result of our sinfulness and must be punishment. Like any father, punishment is measured and administered for the purpose of teaching that sin has consequences. America was once a blessed nation and can be again. TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS and SEEK HIS FACE AND FORGIVENESS. That’s the path for returning to a blessed state and a blessed life. Teach it to your children and grandchildren for their sakes.
There will be opposition, as always. No matter how worthy the action, someone always takes issue. Ignore them. Let those people remain in stagnation and crisis. Be one who is coming out and DON’T LOOK BACK.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
This is the White House in Washington, D.C. It is currently occupied by this president.
This speech is dispicable for so many reasons. Particularly offensive are the comments beginning at 19:00 in the speech.
The history of the border fence, what little there is, begins with a 14 mile stretch in SanDiego, California, which border patrol agents have said is effective for that area. The rest of the 2100 mile U.S. Mexico border remained wide open until Republican Pres. George W. Bush signed a bill into law in 2006 which would build another 700 mile segment, still leaving 1400 unprotected miles.
“The bill was introduced on Sep. 13, 2006 by Peter T. King (R-NY). In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283 -138 on September 14, 2006. On September 29, 2006 – the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80 -19. Most Republicans voted in support of the Fence Act while most Democrats voted against it.” From Wikipedia Source: Obama & McCain back-to-back speeches at NALEO Jun 28, 2008
Take note that it was a Republican who proposed the bill and Republicans who voted for it and Democrats who opposed it and voted against it. Would there be any fence if the President’s party had their way? NO. They voted against it.
As a U. S. Senator, Obama voted for the fence, but has since backed away, sensing the disapproval of Latino Democrat voters, as did Hillary Clinton. As if he lived in a cacoon somewhere on Mars, he answered a question about his position on the border and illegal immigration this way:
“For all the noise and anger that too often surrounds the immigration debate, America has nothing to fear from today’s immigrants. They have come here for the same reason that families have always come here–for the hope that in America, they could build a better life for themselves and their families. Like the waves of immigrants that came before them and the Hispanic Americans whose families have been here for generations, the recent arrival of Latino immigrants will only enrich our country.” Barack Obama, Source: Obama & McCain back-to-back speeches at NALEO Jun 28, 2008 http://www.ontheissues.org/international/barack_obama_immigration.htm
Nothing to fear from all those illegal immigrants. Don’t fear the drug cartels that behead their victims and dump the headless bodies in public places to terrorize citizens. No need to fear the high-powered weapons they use to gun people down on our side of the border. The thefts, property destruction, rapes and kidnappings should not disturb our sleep at night. We should feel perfectly safe with drug cartels targeting our kids with highly addictive drugs and dangerous gangs ruling some neighborhoods and initiating new members with drive-by shootings, or settling turf wars by murdering their rivals. Don’t worry about being caught in a cross-fire. And as you write that big check to the IRS and your state and local taxes, don’t worry about how much of it is required to finance the jam-packed prisons and jails needed to house all the illegal alien criminals that will probably get out someday and commit another crime.
(This is where there should be a photo of people killed by illegals, but gore isn’t needed. Everyone except the guy behind the heavily guarded fence at the White House knows what’s going on at our border.)
After Obama moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue behind heavily-guarded fences, the clamor for a southern border fence grew too loud to ignore. Fox News had reporters on-site filming lots of illegals streaming across umimpeded. They filmed the large number of guns and weapons confiscated from apprehended illegals and the truckloads of drugs netted.
What happens when someone climbs the U.S.-Mexican border fence most of the time?
What happens when someone climbs the fence at Obama’s residence?
Does Obama feel unsafe without a fence, or without guards at the fence? Does he fear for his family? The citizens of the border states fear for their safety and the safety of their families, too. They appealed to Obama for help. To be fair, Obama and his Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano, who also believes the border is safe, even though she said just the opposite when she was the governor of Arizona, decided to build a high tech fence rather than a physical one. Oh wait! That was also a Republican Pres. George W. Bush project! Obama and Napolitano cancelled it, offering nothing in its place. The project was too expensive and didn’t work, costing $1 billion and five wasted years. Cancelled in 2010, it was the last effort to build a barrier to illegals.
Obama lives safely behind a physical fence with human guards, dogs and security cameras, while Texans, Arizonans, New Mexicans, Californians, and many states northward, live in danger, possesions stolen and/or defaced, and have to endure Obama telling them that the fence is finished, he added plenty of border patrol and the nation is safer than it’s ever been. EVERYONE IN THE BORDER STATES KNOWS ITS UNTRUE!
To add insult to injury, Obama sarcastically mocked and laughed at the people in danger without admonishing the illegals climbing the fence portion that does exist, without demanding that the murder, human trafficking, drug running, rape, theft and property damage stop. Without the slightest stern warning to the law-breakers, Obama insults the victims! A higher fence, Mr. President? How about any fence? How about tearing down that fence around the White House and leaving it down until there is a fence around the U.S.?
The web site for the U. S. Customs and Border Protection Agency above provides a map of the U.S.-Mexico border showing the progress of the border fence. A green line is finished fence. A yellow line is fence under construction. A red line is fence that is planned but not yet under construction. You will notice a lot of green lines, but note that there are breaks in the line that amount to miles. You will also notice that Texas is wide open, with only a small portion of fencing at El Paso. I wonder why Obama made his “fence speech” at El Paso rather than further south in Texas. I know why he didn’t choose to go to Arizona. He is suing them. This is the only map on their site and it’s dated 12/29/2009. It appears that nothing has been planned since then and no construction is under way. That represents the two years that Obama has been in the White House, yet in his speech he talks as if he has finished the fence and satisfied everyone’s requests, but Republicans keep moving the goal posts.
Regarding his statement that “they will want a higher fence”, it might be a good idea, considering all the video of illegals climbing over the existing fence. What good is a fence that can be scaled?
This was not the speech of a statesman. Not the speech of an informed politician. Not the spirit of a president of the United States. This was a vindictive slap at those who dared fight back when he said “no.” The border states asked for federal border control to keep them safe. They were rebuffed. When they had no other choice but to defend themselves, Obama sued the state of Arizona to block them from their own defense. While no one has asked for a mote or an alligator, Obama has dogs that can tear your leg off if you climb his fence.
Obama incorrectly assumes that the only aliens crossing our border illegally are honest hard-working Mexicans coming here to work so they can feed their families. Well, how honest can they be if they break the law to get here, take a fake social security number, falsify documents to conceal their immigrant status, take pay in cash to avoid paying taxes, use our welfare and medical benefits reserved for citizens, etc., etc., etc.? Since none of these illegals check in with anyone, they can be from any country with any motive, such as felons escaping prison in their home countries, Al Qaeida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Chinese spies, Russian spies, Venezuelans, virtually anyone with any motive – terrorism being the highest on the list.
Obama has forgotten that he is the president of the United States and should behave accordingly, sensitive to the needs of all citizens, and not a stand-up comic taking shots at people he doesn’t like.
Shame on Mr. Obama.
Where did these guns come from? The government’s deadly Fast and Furious gun running scheme?

So it’s Friday afternoon and everyone’s anxious to get on with their weekend plans, especially the Obamas who are taking off for a vacation in “the tony Martha’s Vineyard”, as some reporters put it. They’ve rented a $20 million dollar farm from a wealthy Republican, which begs the question, “why did Michelle tell college students at their commencement ceremony to forego a corporate career and chose a life of service, essentially steering them away from making hefty salaries. It seems like a case of “do as I say, not as I do”, which is a typical Obama pattern.
What you might have missed in all the vacation talk, or your own scurry home for the weekend, is the little bit of news released by the White House amidst the Friday afternoon “no one is paying any attention right now” time slot. Obama’s administration has raised its 10-year deficit projection to approximately $9 trillion. They tried to stick with the former projection of $7.1 trillion (oh what’s a trillion or two?), but finally had to agree with the Office of Management and Budget Office on the higher figure.
This doesn’t include the universal health care bill that the Congressional Budget Office pegs at a cost of $1.6 trillion or the cap and trade bill that will wind up costing $2 trillion over eight years instead of Obama’s initial projection of $646 billion. As usual, the government underestimated the costs. Don’t be surprised if they raise the projection for the cost of the health care bill, too. http://www.usnews.com/blogs/capital-commerce/2009/03/18/will-can-andtrade-cost-2-trillion.html
So why do you think Obama’s people released the new $2 trillion higher figure on Friday afternoon as the President is capturing the news media’s attention with his vacation plans? Why do they always tend to release bad information on Friday afternoon during the “no one’s paying any attention right now” time slot?
With the Communist Chinese buying our debt instruments, at least for now, we could find ourselves in a peck of trouble someday. Where will the government get the money to pay these astronomical debt amounts if and when the Chinese call it in? They’ve got two places to grab a buck or a trillion bucks: print it or take it from our paychecks by hiking taxes to astronomically high rates. If they print it, the dollars in our bank accounts will be diluted to minimal value. A dollar that once bought a loaf of bread, now only buys one-fourth of a loaf. So it could take four diluted dollars to buy the same loaf. (Of course, I’m not trying to be accurate, just over-simplifying.) Either way, or a combination of the two, would be devastating to families, young people trying to get started in life and retirees on a fixed income.
It certainly seems that Obama is hell-bent on taking Americans to that unholy place of “flat-broke” at home and in Washington, D.C. Do you think the White House, the Congress and the Senate will give up their jets, cushy hotels, world travel, expensive restaurants and other perks to save money? Rather doubt it, don’t you? They never have!
We’re going to have to stand up and fight these bills and expenditures without growing weary. We can’t let up. Our future is at stake. Our chidren and grandchildren’s futures are at stake. America is a republic, and it should never be a banana republic.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
