The media is attempting to ignore or downplay the admission of an Obamacare architect.
“Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up and decoration. But as time goes by, what is true is revealed, and what is fake fades away.” – Ismail Haniyeh
Over the last few Days, the newly uncovered videos of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber in which he calls the American people “stupid” have caused quite a stir in the media—well, the new media, that is. In the regular, mainstream media, its been a minor blip, if anything at all. According to Fox News’ Howard Kurtz:
“It’s been a virtual blackout…and it’s inexcusable, nothing on the network evening newscasts. One mention on CNN, not a word in the New York Times. On what planet is this kind of embarrassing admission not news? Maybe on that comet where the spaceship just landed.”
The mainstream media refuses to cover the videos in which Gruber speaks disparagingly of the American people because it reflects badly on Obama, and his signature legislation. Why else would the media ignore such a provocative story?
If ever there is a situation in which you wonder about the intent of the media, simply reverse the Party name involved in the story. For example, imagine if Jonathan Gruber were the architect of the Iraq war. Imagine new videos emerged during the Bush years in which Gruber said the following: “It was really the stupidity of the American people that allowed us to go to war in Iraq.” What would be the response? There would be wall to wall coverage, indictments of Gruber, as well as Bush, and calls for resignation. It would be the opposite of a blackout. So, one must wonder, given the severity of these bombshell videos, why no media coverage? Because what was said was true, and it is damning.
When I say that Gruber’s comments were true, I mean that his sentiment is true. A large portion of the American people—the low-information voters—were, and are indeed, too ignorant to see past the smoke and mirrors of Obamacare. Additionally, Gruber’s comments are an indictment of the Obama Administration and its willingness to manipulate the American people.
Why are they an indictment? Because the Obama administration has done nothing to distance themselves from the remarks. Were Gruber’s comments categorically untrue, the administration would have immediately put out a press release denouncing what was said. However, the administration has done no such thing. Rather than denounce, they have kept completely silent. Silence, in situations such as these, is indicative of guilt. Given that, it appears as though the Obama administration is admitting by omission that what Gruber said is in fact true. If it is true, then the Obama administration is admitting to fraud. Not fraud in the legal sense, but a mass deception which was designed wholly to keep Americans in the dark regarding Obamacare.
If the Obama administration is indeed admitting to such fraud, by the fact that they are refusing to denounce Gruber’s comments, they are admitting that Obamacare is not what they alleged it was–which was a fix for all our healthcare woes. With this admission, they have told the American people that Obamacare is a fraud.
The next step is to ask why? Why would the left commit fraud on the American people? Because Obamacare is not a fix, it is not a package designed out of compassion, but a method by which the left is consolidating power. Obamacare gives the federal government incredible new powers that it never had before, and it gives the Democrats new dependents. Once a government has more dependents than it has contributors, all of the power rests in the hands of the elites.
Obamacare is one step in a massive government overreach that is designed to create a dependency state in which we are all reliant on the federal government. This reliance causes more people to vote Democrat, and the Party’s power grab becomes even more pronounced.
Jonathan Gruber made a severe mistake. He pulled back the curtain, revealing just a glimpse of the left’s designs. What we’ve seen is absolutely terrifying.
