By The Right Scoop


Tonight on his show Mark Levin gave what I think is probably the most important reason I’ve ever heard on why Republicans must keep fighting Obamacare. And it couldn’t be more clear after what we witnessed today with Obama trying to keep WWII veterans from visiting their own memorial.

This is scary and you know Levin is dead on:

“Imagine the power the government would have today – let’s pretend it’s ten years from now and Obamacare is fully in place and there’s a legitimate fight over spending and taxing…and there’s a government shutdown… Do you know what a president like Obama would do?

He’d start cutting off your health care to force you to capitulate to his demands. Oh yes! They’d start shutting down hospitals, refusing to pay doctors and nurses, refusing to approve prescriptions. Because that’s where we’re headed, to the complete iron-fisted control of our health care. Can you imagine the kind of power they’d have over us then?

It’s certainly one of the reasons we must resist now.”

    This country is in for a rude awakening very, very, soon.

      This President is in for the rude awakening and reckoning!

  • LibertyLinda

    I like what was said on Mark’s show last night by his guest (whose name I can’t remember) that the current Socialist takeover law is NOT the same as what was passed by Congress and not the same as what the Supreme Court reviewed – therefore it null and void! Conservatives MUST FIGHT THIS Socialist takeover of our healthcare industry! Personally, its a career-ender for me- a RN of 30 years- as I will refuse to work for any Socialist administration.

    • breakn70

      Betsy Mcaughey was the guest. She is the former Lt. Governor of NY and an expert on O’Care. Very smart woman.

    • JohnCraven

      We need to storm the BARACKades of ignorance somehow LibertyLinda and penetrate the invincible ignorance of the BORG drone supporters of Nero Obama and only God can help us do that.

      Hi, I think that was Betsy McCaughey (sounds like McCoy). She’s incredible and has been on Neil Boortz’s show too recently when he was filling in (or back) for Herman Cain. She’s a sharp one and should be our secretary of HHS, not that airhead socialist Sebelius.

    God declared long ago, “But if you do not obey Me … if you despise My statutes … I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you .… I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. … I will break the pride of your power …” (Leviticus 26:14-19; New King James Version).

    • waffle_anna

      Exactly. What we need to do is turn back to God. There are many, MANY people pleading for this nation before God, just like Lot was pleading for Sodom and Gomorrah… But America is not Sodom and Gomorrah. America was founded upon God’s principles and statutes.

      this isn’t as good a source, but in the same vein;

    We still don’t know what’s in this law, how can anyone trust enough to sign up for an unknown ? Congress must know something, they aren’t willing to be a part of it. Whatever is being asked of big business is getting a years delay, it must be horrible. But getting you on the hook, he won’t back down from that, he knows, those people will be on the hook forever.

    • PNWShan

      Somebody who tried signing up made the point that even before he found out what the cost would be of getting Obamacare that the Feds had learned a whole lot of information about him just through the sign-up process.

      • deeme

        It’s acorn, and other not to be trusted people, who could trust the IRS , they attack anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Like an honorable man like Ben Carson and true the vote.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Oh my god, I have to confess I hadnt thought about that, once again Levin nails it. I just hope he wouldve expanded on a little bit more.

  • aposematic

    Said basically the same thing, I think on a Breitbart comment, involving the barrycades of the WWII Memorial… If Obuma can shut down a Memorial that is publically funded in a childish uncompromising snit fit, what can/will an Obuma do with ObumaNOcare fully implemented.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

    Of course a dear leader would. But it won’t even take that. A government who has a power to “give” perceived rights can take them away at their whim. That’s why people need to wake the he!! up and realize that free stuff isn’t free and some day it won’t be there anymore- then what will you do?!

    • keyesforpres

      Exactly. I want to shake those idiots that just look at the “free” shiney object. That is all they care about. They are too stupid to know and get the CLOWARD PIVEN STRATEGY. Overwhelm the system and collapse it so our dollar is worthless and our bank accounts become nothing but air. We will all be standing in bread lines. That is this piece of crap’s goal and deciding who lives and who dies.

    • Patriot077

      I didn’t read the posts before writing my own diatribe, Duckie. We are definitely on the same page here though my view may be too cynical for you :)

    Obamacare Fines to be Seized From Bank Accounts?

    http://www.infowars.com/obamacare-fines-to-be-seized-from-bank-accounts/

    Man who attempted to sign up claims he was threatened with driver’s license being revoked, federal tax lien on home.

    October 2, 2013

    A man who attempted to sign up forObamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his drivers license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.

    • keyesforpres

      Yes, they will have direct access to our bank accounts. Don’t think they won’t clean them out and take away our homes.

      • jerseydave

        The irony is it ill all go to the banksters and the people who think the Dems are looking out for the “99 percent” will get their ca$h vacuumed out to the banksters like everyone else.

          That’s what Communists always do….pretend they are looking out for the middle class….while stealing all their money.

      If that’s the penalty for not buying health insurance, one might as well go full throttle and refuse to pay taxes. If they want war, make it all-out war.

  • keyesforpres

    I have said this from the get go. Under ObamaNOcare I believe Republicans will be put in one database and democommunists in another. Not a member of the democommunist party? No medical treatment for you.

    • Patriot077

      Agree. And the same goes for college loans for our kids. And jobs.

    • jerseydave

      …or, the Gov’t types and the regular folks, like the old USSR with the two sets of clinics. One for the connected and one for the average folks.

  • StrangernFiction

    He’d do a lot worse than that if he could.

  • Phil_GA

    Honestly, I wish on hadn’t listened to this segment, because now I know.

    If anyone still doesn’t believe Obamacare is essentially evil for this country, just what kind of “overreach” could be foreseeable with this juggernaut?

    Dare I say that life support (as one example) could be denied to a segment of the population due to “shutdown” considerations?

    Seriously — don’t begin imagining what your federal government is capable of if given the power and authority.

    And health care is the ultimate power over the individual.

    Just wow.

    • Patriot077

      Spot on, Phil. It forever changed the relationship of we the people, as sovereign individuals, to our government. We cannot let up the pressure on this as too many of our fellow citizens do not have your understanding.
      Keep thinking along those lines and educate others.

      • JohnCraven

        Ditto! Patriot077! Ditto!

      Spread the word, Phil_GA! We have to storm the BARACKades of ignorance about Nero ObamaCARE (N O CARE).
      John Craven
      New Orleans

  • Patriot077

    It won’t even take a shutdown for that result. All it would take is a Congress that feels it is more important to fund turtle crossings than hospitals. In any event, as soon as the money dries up, they will be cutting corners on anything that benefits the people. Look at the NIH trials that children with cancer have been denied in this shutdown – by 0vomit. And that is for spite and political effect. When there ain’t no money in the “lock box” the people will suffer. The political grifters will, of course, take theirs first.
    Maybe I’m totally cynical, but I’ve always known this potential. It’s why I have always resisted it. I do not want any government in charge of my life and death or that of my loved ones.
    I actually think one of the reasons they want control of the care is so they can prolong fewer lives thereby cutting the medicare & social security payouts. That’s why it was so urgent for them to force it through. They were desperate to get it done while the baby boomers are reaching recipient age.

    • JohnCraven

      Very excellent points, Patriot077. I think you nailed it in a nutshell. Their real targets are the baby boomers and they want to send as many of us to the Nero Obama death panels as possible as quickly as possible and of course they get to keep everything we have through their endless death taxes.
      John Craven

    • colliemum

      Indeed so – and don’t think they couldn’t or wouldn’t do it!
      Just google “Liverpool Care Pathway”!
      Sounds oh-so-caring – but kills people off who didn’t need to die. Worse – we’ve learned that several NHS hospitals were given financial incentives to use this “Care”. The more they did – i.e. the more people were killed off – the more money the got.
      And the worst is that this all comes form our money, our taxes …

      You better believe they want and need to kill the elderly – just recall the surreptitious propaganda already under way about how the Baby Boomers are greedy and cost too much, depriving the young of whatever they want to have now.

      • Patriot077

        It is a grisly business when the government controls our health delivery system. I knew of “The Pathway” and have read some truly horrific stories, mum, and cringe at the thought of the young people who are becoming doctors and physician assistants. They are not being taught medical/patient ethics and most will not have the moral foundation to exhaust all efforts to save lives much less to “first do no harm”.
        “Quality of Life Years” will be the first factor considered when doling out any treatment authorisations.

        • colliemum

          Just so – and “Quality of Life Years” will not be defined by your nice family GP, but by a central computer programme, all very scientific of course, and no medical knowledge will be needed to ‘decide’ who should or shouldn’t get treatment.

          Here’s another ‘example’ from the glorious NHS: there are ‘helplines’ now which you can ring 24/7 (because your doctor isn’t available …) and ask the person at the other end if you should take your child or dad to the Emergency Room. After all, most of us don’t want to disturb the doctors unnecessarily.
          The person at the other end uses a computer programme … after two weeks training. That person can be a school leaver on their first job.
          So guess what happens – they’re scared of making a mistake, people are scared, so they go to the Emergency Room anyway.
          Now these departments are overstretched, because this wasn’t how the thing was supposed to work! Now it needs even more money …
          Imbeciles!

    It has been the human condition throughout history that some men live only to enslave others. And some men willing to be slaves.

    If we are not fighting, we are forging our own shackles and noose.

    • Patriot077

      On one of Glenn Beck’s shows he talked about a general in George Washington’s army who reported on his soldiers after a hard fought battle.
      His words written to Washington were that “his men fought as men determined to be free.” Sorry that I don’t recall the officer’s name, but his words still ring in my heart.

    Levin is spot-on. Don’t think for a moment that these self-appointed “overlords” will not hesitate to use the i.r.s. against its enemies. also, let’s see if boehner and reid will succeed in getting their obamacare waivers. these people should be railroaded out of d.c.

    Absolutely correct.

    Thank God the Founding Fathers insisted that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

  • Conservative_Utopia

    Let’s not forget the database that will put pressure on us from every direction. Common Core, tax code, EPA, healthcare student loans, etc. You don’t have to violate a law, you just have to give them a reason to target you and shut you down with administrative thuggery. There will be so many avenues for the feds to shut you down, overwhelm you or detain you, they just need a reason. And if they are able to crash the dollar, well… your gov’t EBT card just might not work when you need it most.

  • Darrell Griffin

    How ironic that the WWII veterans went to Europe to end a regime that conducts itself like the one in the WH now

  • MiketheMarine

    That would get that president, in ten years, targetted.

      I’m not suggesting he should be, but I’m surprised Obama hasn’t been targeted yet.

              • MiketheMarine

    It’s happening right now. Patients are being denied cancer treatment because the federal government already has too much power in their lives.
    It’s crazy to give the federal government any more power. Look how much power Obamacare gives the federal executive branch – just look at what it does for the IRS alone.
    Given the arbitrary abuse of power exercised by this president, the American people should see a clear mandate to roll back the federal government’s power – not increase it!

    • kong1967

    Quotes from the greatest General who ever wore the uniform, my personal hero General Chesty Puller:

    All right, they’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of us, they’re behind us…they can’t get away this time.”

    “Great. Now we can shoot at those bastards from every direction.”

    “We’re surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them”

    “Remember, you are the 1st Marines! Not all the Communists in Hell can overrun you!”

    “Take me to the Brig. I want to see the real Marines.”

    “Alright you bastards, try and shoot me!” (to Korean forces)

    “Where do you put the bayonet?” (upon seeing a flamethrower for the first time)

    “You don’t hurt ‘em if you don’t hit ‘em.”

    “Hit hard, hit fast, hit often.”

    “Retreat! Hell, we’re just attacking in a different direction.”

    Is there a Marine who’ll drag this impostor from our beloved White House and put him in chains, where he belongs?

  • Darrell Griffin

    Here’s the unfortunate reality that people like me have been saying and regular people are just now figuring out. Mark Levin sums up what would take me an hour to type up and support with evidence in 1 minute and 30 seconds.

    He’s a totalitarian leftist. This is who liberals are. They can’t convince, so they force. He is just more brazen about it, and why not ? Nobody has stood up to him, his ego has been inflated for decades, and he’s never been told no. So he is emboldened to rule by fiat. Honey Badger don’t care.

    When they do stand up to him, they get run over, impugned, demagogued or investigated, along with the media anal exam. Honey Badger wants it.

    Brown Shirt tactics. Quite literally. The parallels between this Administration and Hitler in the 1930s, right down to the political platform, is quite troubling although not surprising. It’s who leftists are. Honey Badger don’t give a sh_t.

    He has no standards, he has no limits, he has no conscience when it comes to employing his policies. For him the ends justify the means. He and his minions will do whatever it takes to force compliance and “fundamental change”. Honey Badger gonna take it.

    In other words, he’s a typical liberal. Only more dangerous because he has a compliant Senate, a leg humping media, and the most powerful government on the planet at his disposal.
