BREAKING: HHS Started Obamacare Applications for Americans Without Their Knowledge or Permission
Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, April 4, 2014, 9:32 AM

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks?
You start the applications yourself.

Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf.
HHS had started the applications for them.

Sue

First.

NH's iconic motto is "Live Free or Die",which is a quote from Revolutionary war hero John Stark. The opposite of "Be Tolerant or Die."

Maine's motto is "Dirigo" which means wicked good. :)

Bori

Jane- When I heard the over 7 million sign-ups I thought that something was up. My first impression was how would you do it?

Use all those list of information from donor lists to PAC's, etc. and start their application. It doesn't matter if they actually buy Obamacare but that they demonstrate a large enough number to appear at least interested.

Though I admit that I thought that this was too devious and felt that even the O admin would not do that. Well, I guess I was wrong.

Jane

Even Andrew Sullivan is pissed off about the treatment of Mozilla's CEO.

This is a very bad thing for gay people.

Hopefully, it will turn out to be a "very bad thing" for Mozilla/Firefox as well.

Ray Bradbury told us 60 years ago the philosophy that future tyrants would use to seize power... tyranny with a smiley face "Be Tolerant... or die". TomM rightly poins out the sinister hypocrisy of today's fascist Left in adopting Bradbury's smiley faced tyranny.

Orwell warned us about the methods tyrants would use to maintain power. The Left indeed uses Orwell as its How To manual.

I checked the story on GP and it appears that the State was the culprit in sending the HHS the information.

Of course, the HHS could have access to this information anyway and are mentioning the State to cover their misuse of the information.

"This is a very bad thing for gay people."

It wasn't a very good thing for Mr. Eich, either. I believe I'll be able to control any flood of sympathy I might feel concerning damage incurred by gay bigots due to their bigotry.

I believe that, boris. Just like lots of the environmental groups are really just 10 leftist lawyers sittin' in an office filing lawsuits.

Wonder how many gays were actually part of the mob?

narc:
What did she say, 'we will not let you be uninvolved'

Well, she literally said, "Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed."

At the time she said it, Barack Obama shared the same position on gay marriage as the briefly tenured former President of Mozilla.

Also in that quote?

"Barack Obama will require you to work."

What a kidder. What she really meant was Barack Obama will give you more extended unemployment benefits, more EBT cards, Obamaphones-for-all, and will give you the sweet release from job-lock through the wonders of Obamacare so that you can be a cowboy poet.

Well, I liked Firefox, and groomed with extensions, was very happy with how it worked.

Still use TOR of lots of stuff. As TOR uses an earlier version of FF, presumably I will still use FF when using TOR.

But right now, am using Opera (on my MacBook). I can still use the Narcisolator and killfile, still have a great ad blocker, and Last Pass password manager is also available. The Text Formatting Toolbar is not available, alas, and I have not found a substitute.

So far, so Good.

Meanwhile, Mark Steyn, discusses the Brandon Eich situation and his own confrontation with the speech police, here, in his essay Celebrate Conformity!!
http://www.steynonline.com/6236/celebrate-conformity
He recalls:
QUOTE
I heard a lot of this stuff during my free-speech battles in Canada. The country's chief censor, the late Jennifer Lynch, QC, was willing to concede that free speech was certainly a right, but it was merely one in a whole range of competing rights - such as "equality" and "diversity" - that needed to be "balanced". What the "balancing" boils down to is that you get fired if you are an apostate from the new progressive groupthink. Underneath the agonized prose, Mitchell Baker is a bare-knuckled thug.

~It's the thuggishness and bullying that ought to disgust people, even those who support gay marriage. My final appearances at National Review Online were a spat with my editor, Jason Lee Steorts, over "two jokes one can no longer tell on American television" that I quoted in a column on Phil Robertson's suspension for "homophobia". First, Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill:

"I've just flown in from California, where they've made homosexuality legal. I thought I'd get out before they make it compulsory."

Second, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on stage in Vegas throughout the Sixties and Seventies:

Frank: "How do you make a fruit cordial?"

Dino: "Be nice to him."

Mr Steorts thought my resurrection of these ancient "slurs" was "derogatory" and "puerile":

People who used them in different times need not be regarded as monstrous, nor must the canon be censored; we could instead feel good about having awoken to a greater civility and make generous allowances for human fallibility.

Yeah, just like Brandon Eich "awoke to a greater civility" yesterday morning. What Mr Steorts especially disliked about my column was "the slur in its borrowed concluding joke". Which was:

How do you make a fruit cordial?

Be nice to him.

Or else.

In the closing days of the open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) , the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf.

The HHS letter stated that the information they used to begin the application for individual Healthcare was obtain by the state agency in charge of implementing Obamacare.

The next step for the individual would be visit Healthcare.gov and complete the already started application to see if they qualify for “Marketplace coverage.”

I've been using Firefox for about a decade. No more. Uninstalled it last night. I replaced it with Chrome, which I'm not wild about, but it's fast. Firefox was the best, but I refuse to be associated with these spittle-flecked Nazis for another minute longer.

Ukraine: Putin/Gazprom (same thing) have begun the economic war against Kiev/Ukraine, jumping gas prices 80% So those of us who guesse Putin would use economic blackmail/war against Ukraine were correct. Ukraine claims to be on it, and is ready to ramp up native coal for energy. Simultaneouly Putin continues his military build up on the border. So those of you who guessed he would grab Eastern/Russian Ukraine may also be right. Meanwhile Chuck Hagel speaks, and he removes all doubt that he is an idiot: http://hotair.com/archives/2014/04/04/video-russia-raises-gas-prices-80-for-ukraine/

Boycotting Firefox will enhance the illusion of power which the gay bigots wish to present. The gay bigots will claim credit for any damage done to Mozilla at this point, Boycot gay bigots instead. If you can't find a gay bigot to boycott, write a scathing critique of the President's inability to demonstrate proper color coordination in decorating the Oval Office.

I have no idea what the topic is--
but for two days, I've been listening to NPR as I spread 80 bales of pine needles.


Yes, torture--but remember, I have those 20 -something children who are immersed in this view--I NEED to know what is being said.

But this is what we're up against--here I am, listening to to a "historian" on Fresh Air, being interviewed about the Civil Rights legislation passed in 1964, as today is the 45th anniversary of MLK Jrs assassination. ( A day I remember well.)

And this is what featured guest Todd Purdham says, when asked why JFK had wanted to wait until his second term to pass civil rights legislation:

"Well, you have to remember that at that time, the Congress was dominated by Southerners..."

Not Southern DEMOCRATS, just those racist Southerners.

matt

The Leftists/Gay radicals took the issue of marriage as being between one man and one woman and turned it into an "equal rights" issue. Prop 8 was very clear and there was specific language barring discrimination against LBGT people. This is how the Left plans to redefine language and create a new class of offense, thoughtcrime.

Whether it is disagreeing on economics, or the climate, or school choice, or whatever you choose henceforth you can be charged and convicted by an anonymous accuser who is often leaked confidential information from within government files.

Old Lurker

"Ukraine claims to be on it, and is ready to ramp up native coal for energy."

Converting from coal to natural gas is fast and easy.

Going the other way is much much harder, even assuming you have ongoing coal mining that can be ramped up.

So I call BS on that statement, certainly in time to impact the current crisis they are in.

NK(withnewsoftware)

The natgas energy blackmail is one of the major issues in play, another is Ukraine debt renunciation. How much Russian debt will Kiev renounce as “dettes odieuses" made between the prior corrupt regime as insider deals with Russian patrons? Any such renunciation will be...ahem...provacative and destabilizing.... as least as far as Tsa Vlad is concerned: http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/ukraine-s-odious-debts_786503.html

NK,

OTOH - a vote to join the Russian Federation keeps the IMF bank thieves out of the vaults and gets the Gazprom NG subsidy back in play. Meanwhile, the President of the United States has turned to page 2 of Chess for Dummies without fully understanding the import of page 1.

I figured Vlad is just upping the amount owed by Ukraine and then plans to, in US real estate law terminology, apply the doctrine of self-help to go in and secure his debt.

As I have been mentioning I have enjoyed all the Bernard Cornwell Viking books lately. One Viking tactic was to land in England, trash a few towns and rape the virgins and wives to prove their seriousness, then offer to skip over towns that would give them a bunch of gold or silver to go away.

A bunch of that Russian DNA derives from the the same Northmen too.

National Review fired John Derbyshire for a thoughtcrime too (for an article published elsewhere) and Jason Lee Steorts, an editor at NR, upbraided Mark Steyn for writing about two mild and essentially benign jokes that Bob Hope and Dean Martin made about gays. I don't think they have much room for righteous indignation over the treatment of Mozilla's CEO (as expressed today in NROs editorial).

Yes, I will uninstall Firefox, just as I will never again take a NR cruise, although I've been on five of them in the past. Both hurt because I'm a technological dunce who requires some time to learn a new system and because I had a great time on the cruises. A shame to punish myself too, but what other voice do I have?

windansea

I've been reading a novel by Ted Bell called Tsar, a spy thriller with all the usual clichés and unreal characters. But the author just nails the present situation with Russia, Ukraine, Crimea etc. I had to look at the publishing date as the accuracy of current events made me think it was just published, actually it was published in 2008. Strange how a less than famous author could predict what would happen while our clown posse government fumbles in the dark.

"at that time, the Congress was dominated by Southerners..."

Congress has exactly the same number of Southern senators as it had then, and pretty close to the same number of representatives in the house.

apply the doctrine of self-help to go in and secure his debt.

Where I come from, that is changing the locks when the nonpaying tenant is out of the building. In that light, Putin used self help to remove squatters from the bases in Crimea, and appears to me to be poised to do it again in Eastern Ukraine.

Bori

Browsers make money from referral fees. The more subscribers the higher the fee charged. They also make money from companies that pre-package their software with the product.

Old Lurker

The are more southern reps today than than years ago because of the migration south and west. So JFK had a more northern congress than we have now. DoT's correct that the Senate has not changed since the addition of Hawaii and Alaska.

Old Lurker

That is what it means here to GMax but it is frustrating to us landlords in Janet's Arlington County that even when our leases expressly state that the Landlord is entitled to change the locks for non-payment of rent, our lawyers have not let us do that for years now. It did not take the tenants long to figure out they can get six additional months rent free while the landlord gets a court order for eviction.

Is there some person or group (like the Board of Directors) at Mozilla who could have stood up for Eich, refused his resignation? Our ire should be focused on them. There will always be agitators and thugs. The important thing is to stand up to them. This would have been easy--Prop 8 won in lib California after all.

Bori: Sorry to be dense, but what exactly is a referral from a browser? I can't recall ever seeing one - are they "behind the scenes" to the end user? An example would help.

Jane

Something else from Gateway Pundit - which I'm not sure is true, because the LA times had the info. Now where they got if from I don't know.

But I'm perfectly willing to nail Obama for it:

And, how did gay groups know Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 Campaign?
Because the Obama IRS leaked this information to a gay-advocacy group in 2012.
First Things reported, via The Tatler:

Amazingly enough, it is entirely due to the fact that Eich made a $1,000 donation to the campaign urging a ‘yes’ vote on California’s Proposition 8. When this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group, Eich, who was then CTO of Mozilla, published a post on his personal blog stating that his donation was not motivated by any sort of animosity towards gays or lesbians, and challenging those who did not believe this to cite any “incident where I displayed hatred, or ever treated someone less than respectfully because of group affinity or individual identity.”

Porchlight

Jane,

I had this same question but it's been answered - according to CA law, donations over $100 must be made public. The list of those Prop 8 donors went up on the CA SoS site shortly after the election in 2008 and has been public ever since (though Prop 8 supporters tried to get it taken down, a judge ruled against them). So the LAT had the info legally.

Allahpundit has a pretty good post here:

http://hotair.com/archives/2014/04/03/how-did-people-find-out-that-mozillas-ceo-donated-to-support-prop-8

Porchlight

However, I think it's quite clear from other evidence that IRS IS releasing confidential tax data to advocacy groups. The Engelbrecht/True The Vote saga is just one of many examples. Just saying that IRS likely wasn't the source of the Eich info.

Old Lurker

Sorry NK. I eventually figured it out.

The State of Mozilla (2012):

The majority of Mozilla’s revenue is generated from search and commerce functionality included in our Firefox product through all major search partners including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Amazon, eBay and others. Mozilla’s reported revenues also include very important individual and corporate donations and grants, which are growing significantly, as well as other forms of income from our investable assets.

I would think the number of searches generated from Firefox, vs. the raw number of "subscribers" of Firefox, would be the revenue driver.

If that's true, then just using DuckDuckGo (which doesn't share your search) might be the equivalent to "unsubscribing". No?

narciso

Yes, Hagel, does remove all doubt, meanwhile two minor Russian envoys joke about taking California and Miamiland,
as they call it. (re the Interpreter)

Bori

AliceH,

One good example are search engines, for example, Google pays Firefox for them to use their search engine.

In turn Google gets revenues from advertisers for displaying their results first. Having a browser, in this instance, Chrome facilitates that.

Another source is news, those companies pay the browsers to display and link to their news stories. Obviously, the more popular your browser the more views and possible links to your own site.

We have a gay neighbor in Southampton who sic'd the police on us because he thought our AC units were violating the village noise code. We were served a warrant to appear in court. Come to find out that he was known for frivilous complaints and law suits against anyone and anything. The judge and village attorney were scared to death of this guy and his antics. He would call them out and pester them all day. Eventually to maintain peace in my own house as well as the neighborhood we replaced the units but the bitter taste remains.

Everyone in the area walks on egg shells because the out of pocket legal costs to defend yourself can run into the tens of thousands and you get no relief from the village or the police. Have never had a neighbor problem where ever I have lived until we came back to Southampton and ran into this jerk.
