Thanks Obama

Josh, in his paper (part one) on the Business Plot, took a look at racketeering while on his way to other destinations. It works as in this example: Suppose you have a small business in an urban neighborhood, and a man comes in (wearing, if course, a Trilby hat and dark trench coat), and offers to sell you insurance to prevent your windows from being broken out. You have to buy the “insurance,” as it is understood that of you don’t, your windows will be broken out.

That is how a “racket” works. A problem is first created and then solved by the same people.  The payment, the “insurance” you are forced to purchase, is called “extortion.” Here is the legal definition:

“The obtaining of property from another induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right.”

I have outlined here the true nature of what is called “Obamacare.” All of the problems we have experienced in our health care system have been created or exacerbated by health insurance companies. Obama (as if) stepped in to remedy these problems by extracting from us an extortion fee paid each month to the same insurance companies who created the problems.

Obamacare is, as I see it, the greatest single financial burden placed on the American public since the imposition if the income tax in 1913. It was a financial coup d’etat of staggering proportions. No way was a mere election farce in 2016 going to have any effect on it. It is with us to stay.

So what of the attempts by Republicans to repeal Obamacare? Understanding those attempts requires a nuanced understanding of politics, where everything is layered and nothing is what it appears. It helps to understand the following:

  • There is only one party, as Chomsky labeled it, “The Business Party.”
  • Congress, as Mathis so often explains, has no real power, and merely gives the news media, also under control of business, something to focus on, a way to fill hours of TV and volumes if newspapers. They are an ongoing sitcom. The real business of running the country happens elsewhere.
  • Often in politics an objective is achieved by pretending to oppose that objective in designed-to-fail stage plays, called “Kabuki Dances.” In such farces, we are given “… appearance of conflict or of an uncertain outcome, when in fact the actors have worked together to determine the outcome beforehand.” (Wikipedia, for once accurate.)

So it is easy now to see that Trump’s attempts to repeal Obamacare were really nothing more that disguised attempts to tighten the Obamacare straightjacket. Trump, a controlled clown, seems to have been put there to make Obama look good. That’s all I can make of him. We’ll never be rid of Obamacare.

So with a better understanding of politics, we can see that the health insurance industry, whose lobby is known as AHIP, spent decades ruining our already shaky health care system via an economic process known as “enclosure.” By this process an activity is fenced off and access controlled. Huge rents are charged for entry. Think of the NFL or MLB, where every access point, be it a stadium or TV or computer screen, charges an access price. This is how AHIP controls health care. The entry fee is known as an insurance policy, but is only a ticket to the nosebleed seats.  We are still burdened with huge costs even with insurance.

The insurance concept is widely used and extremely useful in things like home ownership and automobile accidents, where millions of people need protection and there are only a very few claims. Costs, which far exceed an individual’s ability to pay, are spread out over a huge population, and are affordable. Without the insurance industry, ownership of homes and automobiles would be impossible.

Health care is quite different. Everyone needs it at various times, especially as  we age (which is why health insurance companies refused to sell policies to senior citizens, thereby forcing the creation of the Medicare system, another racket). Health care is something else … a “utility.” (Use of that word will get you booted from every AHIP board room.) Everyone needs it, and we need to use the cheapest and most efficient system available to provide it, government. Every other country on the face of the planet has some form of government-provided health care system, and they all work better and are cheaper than ours. (Did the business-owned news media fail to point this out to us?)

As Americans, with Obamacare now a fixture, we are screwed in perpetuity. Insurance companies, AHIP, our racketeers, are extorting billions now by force of law, tracking us, levying fines (breaking windows) if we fail to pay them their extortion. Where before we simply had a lousy health care system overseen by greedy insurance companies, we now have a refined system of extraction of wealth … this in addition our lousy, overpriced and inefficient health care system.

So an executive order recently signed by Trump is little more than a band-aid, and will have little effect. OBamacare may be a leaky ship, but it was not designed to fix our health care system, and so will continue to leak but never be allowed to sink.

Thanks, Obama, and oh, by the way, fuck you so very much.

    1. Perhaps I should have inserted the word “modern” in front of “homes.” People simply lost everything if their homes burned or were destroyed. Ownership of today’s automobiles, extremely sophisticated machines, depends on credit, and credit will not be issued without purchase of insurance.

      My mother’s family farmed near Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Their home burned down (they did not own it but it had no insurance), and they were forced to move. They ended up in Montana and lived in my great uncle’s tar paper homesteader shack, a three room mansion with no plumbing. For one year it was home for three adults and seven children, all daughters, before my grandparents found a place to rent.

      Insurance, true insurance, and not the medical hybrid, goes far back in time. Chinese farmers and craftsmen would bring their goods from inland to the coastal cities via boats. They spread everything out among the boats so that no one’s belongings were all in one place. If a boat sank, everyone lost something, no one lost everything. That is the nature of true insurance. It does not work in health care except for catastrophic illness or accident.

  2. If the politicians are mere actors and tools with no real power, then Obama is a mere front as well. It’s not Obama, but the powers that be who want this system in place. Obama, like Trump, are really nothings (and both one in the same), they are just there to give us normies a feeling that we have a free, democratic government. America never was a free democracy from the very beginning. It seems like America was, and is controlled by a covert oligarchy and aristocracy, masked by the charade of a fake democracy.

  3. I get up to $300k liability auto insurance for about $20 a month on my clunker. Why can’t I have $300k health insurance for about $20 a month? $300k=$300k no matter what it’s spent on. The odds of me having severe health problems are greater than mowing down a rally of KKK and BLM protesters on the side of the road? I’ve been paying out the kazoo for health insurance every month for the last 20 years more so in the last 5 years, and only used it once for an antibiotic when I got sick for two weeks. Doesn’t cover the doctor visits. Be nice to have that money back, which would probably pay for most of my future health concerns, since I’ll probably die before I get to run up a big hospital bill that this crap insurance is supposed to pay for. Fuck You Obama and AHIP is a very correct statement!

  4. The ultimate con is the brainwashing that produces patients that make choices that go consistently against their own best interest. This enables the (business) “funnel effect” to suck every last drop of profit from the government-permitted “private” (government licensed-to-kill) “health-care” system.

    “These sophisticated forms of behavioral
    modification force many physicians to adjust their ethics to fit corporate
    economics. When treating physicians become company doctors there is no record
    of denials and nothing to regulate. I have recently become aware of a situation in
    which a treating physician not only withheld care, he actually subjected a patient
    to harmful care in order to ensure that she did not qualify for a more costly
    procedure. Even a medical director does not have that kind of denial power. Yet
    this pales before the best denial method of all: forcing patients to limit their own
    care. I know of a case in which a woman will die because she does not have the
    money to pay for something she needs. She has insurance but it will not cover her
    condition. There is little need for company doctors when patients themselves
    become the agents of their own denial. More and more patients discover that the
    copayments, co-insurance, and other cost-shifting tactics mean that they may have
    “insurance” but it will be useless at a time when they most need it.” https://www.insurancereformwatch.org/problems/peeno.pdf

    Not to worry, every government-permitted business system is running the same con.

  5. Health Insurance is just part of the bigger racket.
    Our society is designed to make us sick. No one gets the proper nutrition from their food, and our water and air are contaminated. Its no wonder that cancer and diabetes rates are skyrocketing.
    And then, once sick, what does our “health care” system really provide for us? Prescriptions for pills, mostly, and perhaps surgery for those in really bad shape.
    Meanwhile, the latest National Geographic has an article on “why vaccines matter.”

    1. why so pessimistic? The stores are full of any food and for reasonable prices the entire year. It’s up to you, what you eat. There’s no need to get sick anymore. Healthcare indeed takes care of your health and will do anything to keep you sick as long as possible. They will make you pay for it but they can’t force you to use their services.
      Just avoid doctors and medicine of any kind. Eat healthy and exercise daily. There is nothing to fear except the fear. Even if food or water may not be perfect clean, it is not poisoned. And we can get rid of a lot of poison. Our body is designed to repair a lot of damage. Just try to minimize the risks and damages and you will be fine.

      1. Why so patronizing?
        I put a lot of effort into being as healthy as i can.
        I’m also fortunate enough to be able to afford high quality food and supplements. I don’t use doctors and haven’t been to the dentist in 25 years.
        However, it is expensive and difficult for many people to get the proper food and nutrition they need.
        And perhaps you don’t consider fluoride a “poison,” but many people do, and it is extremely difficult to remove it from the water we consume.
        Here in the USA, at least diabetes and cancer rates are skyrocketing.
        I am certainly glad that you are healthy and doing well, yourself, though.

        1. I grow up in the Eastern Block and I’m in my 50-s now and I remember times where we had no choice what to have for lunch and were happy if we went to bed not feeling hungry. It wasn’t that bad actually but it was very different to now. Even after my parents moved to Bavaria in the 90-s there still weren’t tomatoes in the winter time or only very expensive ones. Now you can even have strawberries in January and they are cheap and great. Thanks to globalization. So I look positive at the current times. High quality food is not expensive and I consider this entire organic movement being one further psyop. I buy what looks good and fresh not what is called “organic”. We don’t have any fluoride in the tab water here in Germany and our tab water is very clean and we are drinking it, so I don’t even buy any bottled water. In the USA it maybe more complicated. But that is not the reason for diabetes. People get fat because they eat to much and move not enough and then they get sick and doctors diagnose diabetes and if you start taking insulin you will get what is called diabetes. Everybody hast to make a choice about his way of life but you still have choices and it is always up to you. I know from my friends in the USA, the prices for vegetables and fruits and other basic groceries are not higher than here so don’t tell me, people cannot afford to eat properly.

            It’s not that simple. The metabolism is not a first-order linear system. But root cause are always thoughtless people who are not aware that it does matter what they eat. Easy prey for a predatory “health care” system that makes billions with treating symptoms.

          2. The primary reason Americans are obese and diabetic is Coca Cola, and in line behind that beer, chips, pizza, donuts, french fries, cookies … it is not the quantity of food but the type of food that changes the metabolism from a fat burning machine to a fat storing one.

            Gary Taubes said it best when he asserted the essential contradiction in our thinking. He said people don’t get fat because they don’t exercise. People don’t exercise because they get fat.

          3. I believe there are many people who can’t afford to eat proper food. I also believe that oxygen levels in our air have dropped as well as mineral content in our food. But I agree that many people could be making better choices that could increase their levels of health. It’s definitely easier for those of us with a higher education and more money/resources, however.

  6. GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY…when will the draining of the little man end ??
    According to the Emerald Tablets, especially tablet #8, The Key of Mysteries, there’s this, in case we ever wonder how come these politicians are so insanely against us common human beings; against us to the point where we start wondering to ourselves: “are these people even HUMAN BEINGS ?”…

    Emerald Tablet #8;
    The Key of Mysteries

    Far in the past before Atlantis existed,
    men there were who delved into darkness,
    using dark magic, calling up beings
    from the great deep below us.
    Forth came they into this cycle.
    Formless were they of another vibration,
    existing unseen by the children of earth-men.
    Only through blood could they have formed being.
    Only through man could they live in the world.

    In ages past were they conquered by Masters,
    driven below to the place whence they came.
    But some there were who remained,
    hidden in spaces and planes unknown to man.
    Lived they in Atlantis as shadows,
    but at times they appeared among men.
    Aye, when the blood was offered,
    for they came they to dwell among men.

    In the form of man they amongst us,
    but only to sight were they as are men.
    Serpent-headed when the glamour was lifted
    but appearing to man as men among men.
    Crept they into the Councils,
    taking forms that were like unto men.
    Slaying by their arts
    the chiefs of the kingdoms,
    taking their form and ruling o’er man.
    Only by magic could they be discovered.
    Only by sound could their faces be seen.
    Sought they from the Kingdom of shadows
    to destroy man and rule in his place.

    But, know ye, the Masters were mighty in magic,
    able to lift the Veil from the face of the serpent,
    able to send him back to his place.
    Came they to man and taught him the secret,
    the WORD that only a man can pronounce.
    Swift then they lifted the Veil from the serpent
    and cast him forth from the place among men.

    Yet, beware, the serpent still liveth
    in a place that is open at times to the world.
    Unseen they walk among thee
    in places where the rites have been said.
    Again as time passes onward
    shall they take the semblance of men.

    I have found that the section of tablet #8 that I posted above clearly explains, to anyone who cares, which way the wind’s blowing regarding these perverted, non-human entities that have taken over not only politics but the entertainment industry as well.

  7. The word that only a man can pronounce = KIN-IN-I-GIN.

    In ancient times the elders of a village would greet traveling strangers at the edge of the village and ask them to say the word. If they could not say the word to the satisfaction of the elders they would be quickly bundled off, away from the eyes of children and women folk, and be decapitated. If only we could return to this simple method of lifting the veil on these malevolent entities in human suits..
