"As the country gears up for the visit of Pope Benedict XVI, the Cuban authorities must be held to account for their continuous and escalating violations of religious freedom."

Andrew Johnston, Advocacy Director, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW)

March 4, 2012

On February 28, 2012 Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) a Christian organization working for religious freedom through advocacy and human rights, in the pursuit of justice, issued a press release denouncing the escalating violations of religious freedoms, citing the case of the Lady in White, Caridad Caballero Batista in the Eastern city of Holguin:'`

"Over the past two months and in the run up to Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the island next month, CSW has seen a sharp increase in cases of religious freedom violations in Cuba. CSW has received reports each Sunday since the beginning of the year that across the country members of the Ladies in White group, the majority of whom are Roman Catholic, are being prevented by state security agents from attending religious services, or are severely harassed when they attempt to do so."

The week of February 27 March 4, 2012 in Cuba was characterized by the same systematic brutal repression against men and women, human rights defenders who peacefully defend fundamental freedoms in the island. As these activists attempt to assemble, protest or go to Mass they are attacked by Cuban authorities and pro-government mobs with stones, clubs and even machetes.

Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia denounced that the political police has given orders to rip off and tear up any T-shirt or poster that says UMPACU ( Union Patriotica de Cuba) the initials identifying a coalition of human rights groups in Eastern Cuba or any other slogan or motto that authorities consider "offensive".

The ex political prisoner of conscience Angel Moya, who was confined for 24 hours in a prison cell where he was subjected to cruel treatment, denounced that these systematic short term confinements in such inhumane conditions are used to torture the activists in order to force them to stop their human rights activities

State Security agents in Havana warned the Ladies in White that they will not allow that any group of women dressed in white walk together through any street of the capital city, no matter the motive. In Placetas, central Cuba, the arrest of Yris Perez Aguilera, leader of the Rosa Parks Femenine Movement is significant in that a police official removed her pants inside a patrol car and threatened to sexually assault her.

On March 1, 2012, more than 700 Cuban activists sent a letter to Pope Benedict XVI warning the pontiff that his visit could provide the wrong message to the regime to continue the present violent repression against those who peacefully defend civil liberties in the island: (in Spanish)

The Cuban political prisoner Ernesto Borges, who's served 14 years of a 30 year prison sentence for espionage, has been on a hunger strike since February 10, 2012 demanding to be released under parole. His father, Raul Borges who has described his son's condition as "very delicate and serious" was denied access to his son this week but reported that a priest named Mario called the family on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 to inform them that Cardinal Jaime Ortega had gone to the hospital of the Combinado del Este Prison, following a meeting with Cuban authorities, and met with Ernesto Borges for more than an hour. The contents of the conversation were not disclosed. Raul Borges is demanding that his son be transferred to a regular hospital and fears that Cuban authorities want to do the same thing to Ernesto as they did to Orlando Zapata Tamayo and makes an urgent appeal to the world on behalf of his son."We are going to go to the prison every day to demand to see him, because we don't want to see him only after he is dead."

Copy of Ernesto Borges's sentence

Yasmin Conyedo and her husband, Yusmani Alvarez both remain under arrest since January 8, 2012 in the central city of Santa Clara. Yasmin Conyedo is an independent journalist of the group, United Antitotalitarian Front and a Lady in White. Her husband, Yusmani Alvarez is an activist of the Young Democratic League of Las Villas. They are both falsely accused of attacking the home of a communist party official in their hometown of Villaclara who had initially subjected the couple's home to a pro government mob attack the same day of the arrest. Yasmin was transferred to the Prison of Guamajal and Yusmani to the Prison of La Pendiente on January 16, 2012.

The following are some of the human rights violations reported from Cuba during the week of February 27 March 4, 2012:

February 27, 2012  Independent journalist Sayli Navarro reported from the central province of Matanzas that numerous activists were confined inside their homes that were surrounded by combined forces of State Security, Rapid Response Brigades and the National Revolutionary Police since 2:00 a.m. Other human rights defenders were physically arrested in the towns of Perico and Colon to prevent a meeting of the human rights group, "Partido por la Democracia Pedro Luis Boitel" that was going to be held in the house of the expolitical prisoner of conscience, Felix Navarro in the town of Perico. The arrests were violent as described by Juan Francisco Rangel: "The agent Alexander Guerra pushed me against the roof of the patrol car and hit my head". Among those activists who were arrested were: Angel Moya, Emilio Bringas (85 years old),Juan Francisco Rangel, Lázaro Díaz, Nelson Ruíz, Caridad Burunate, Carlos Olivera, Zoilo Delgado. Ivan Hernandez Carrillo sent a photo via twitter of the repressors around his home: political prisoner of conscienceAngel Moya described where he remained arrested for around 24 hours: "In that (police) Unit, I was confined to a dark cell, without water, without my belongings, without a mattress, and completely infested with mosquitoes and without being allowed access to a phone to inform my relatives of my situation".

Ramon Bolaños Martin reported that Lady in White, Karina Quintana Hernandez was summoned to appear at 3:00 p.m. before a Police Unit of the Antonio Mella Municipality with the objective of preventing her assistance to Mass on Sundays and, particularly of trying to force her to stop being a member of the Ladies in White.

February 28, 2012  The activist Dany Lopez de Moya continued under arrest in Palma Soriano since 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 25, 2012 when he was brutally beaten by the police for wearing a T-shirt that said: "BOITEL, ZAPATA , WILMAN LIVE" and UMPACU . Activists reported they had information that he was vomiting blood as a result of the blows he received and was denied medical attention. Further information of this case will follow.

Rogelio Tabio Lopez reported that paramilitary forces carried out an act of repudiation in the Eastern city of Guantanamoagainst the headquarters of the human rights group "Movimiento Resistencia y Democracia" where activists were holding a meeting. Tabio Lopez also denounced that In the town of Caimanera in the province of Guantanamo, a paramilitary mob carrying machetes and clubs attacked and wounded human rights defenders.

Act of repudiation against the house of the Lady in White Karina Quintana, her husband, Ramon Bolaños Martin and their three children who were terrrorized by the eggs thrown against the front of the house. Bolaños reported that it was all orchestrated by the members of the Communist Party and the political police in Palma Soriano.

March 1, 2012  A violent arrest was carried out against the women, members of the Rosa Parks Femenine Movement in the central city of Placetas who were attacked as they were protesting before the Municipal Headquarters of the Cuban Communist Party. Yris Perez Aguilera was beaten and arrested by an officer, Yuniel Monteagudo, who pulled down her pants inside the patrol car and who threatened to rape her. The women remained under arrest, subjected to cruel and degrading treatment in prison cells until Saturday, March 3rd.

In Havana, human rights defenders, members of the secretariat of the 30th of November Democratic Party, were arrested when they were carrying out a peaceful protest at the Jose Marti Civic Plaza.

The wife of human rights defender,Hugo Damian Prieto, reported from Havana that her husband was arrested in their home in Havana, located at: Calle 89 #21410, entre 214 y 216 in the suburb of La Lisa.

March 2, 2012  Luis Enrique Lozada Igarza, a coordinator of UMPACU reported from the Eastern city of Contramaestre that his home was attacked by what he called "a hail of stones".

In Guantanamo, the home of the human rights defenders, Rogelio Tabio Lopez, his wife, Rosaida Ramirez Matos and their son Rogelio Tabio Ramirez was subjected to a search led by State Security and local police forces that began at 9:30 in the morning and lasted until 3 p.m. Both Rogelio and his son were beaten and arrested. The Lady in White Rosaida was detained and released. She denounce on Sunday, March 4 that her husband and son still remain under arrest at an undisclosed location and that she is unaware of the severity of their injuries caused by the beatings they suffered.

Cuban political prisoners Andry Frometa Cuenca, Leonardo Cantillo Galvan and Leoncio Rodriguez Ponce carried out a hunger strike in the Prison of Guantanamo in Eastern Cuba on February 23, 2012 to honor the memory of Orlando Zapata Tamayo and demand that the regime honor the announced pardon of prisoners that has yet to be met. Dozens of common prisoners joined in the hunger strike. Mareycy Columbie, wife of Frometa denounced that her hsuband was beaten and dragged to a women's prison on February 26 without clothes and confined in inhumane conditions and that authorities will not give her any further information. Hayde Galvan, mother of Cantillo is being denied information concerning the whereabouts of her son and his physical conditions.

March 3, 2012  In Eastern Cuba the following Ladies in White were arrested: In the town of Banes: Miladis Pinales and Marta Diaz Rondon. Pinales was released but the whereabouts of Diaz Rondon were unknown. In Holguin: Gertrudis Ojeda andCaridad Caballero.

March 4, 2012  On Sunday March 4, a total of 117 Ladies in White atended Mass throughout Cuba. Around 20 women were reported as detained and prevented from reaching their respective temples.

In Havana, Minardo Ramos Salgado, an independent union leader, was subjected to a short term arrest and threatened not to hold or participate in any meetings.

The Coalition of Cuban-American Women alerts the international community that the lives of those members of Cuban civil society who are actively and publicly struggling peacefully on behalf of fundamental freedoms are in danger. We are particularly concerned with the cases of the political prisoner Ernesto Borges, the activist couple Yasmin Conyedo andYusmani Alvarez, Yris Perez Aguilera and with the continued physical and mental harassment against members of theLadies in White, Laura Pollan throughout Cuba. International recognition of the peaceful resistance and solidarity for these human rights defenders is crucial. We make an urgent call on religious, civic, political, and cultural entities and its leaders, as well as to non-governmental human rights organizations worldwide.

Obamas  your  promeses ????



Brazilian Oil Drilling 
Thank God for Fox News and Glen Beck!

This is a perfect example why many refrain from watching news on ABC, NBC, CBS, or MSNBC.
Last week on a segment of the "Glenn Beck Show" on FOX (Fox Cable News) was the following:
Even though President 
Obama is against offshore drilling for our country, he signed an executive order to loan $2 Billion of our taxpayer dollars (which we can't afford to loan since we're broke) to a Brazilian Oil Exploration Company (the 8th largest company in the entire world) to drill for oil off the coast of Brazil! The oil that comes from this operation is for the sole purpose and use of China and NOT THE USA ! 

Now here's the real clincher. The Chinese government is under contract to purchase all the oil that this field will produce, which is hundreds of millions of barrels"..
We have absolutely no gain from this transaction whatsoever!

Wait, it gets more interesting.

Guess who is the largest individual stockholder of this Brazilian Oil Company and who would benefit most from this? It is American BILLIONAIRE, George Soros, who was President 
Obama's mostgenerous financial supporter during his campaign. If you are able to connect the dots and follow the money, you are probably as upset as I am. Not a word of this transaction was broadcast on any of the other news networks! Are they doing their job? Think about it.

Forward this factual e-mail to others who care about this country and where it is headed. Also, let all your Government representatives know how you feel about this.

Below is the Wall street Journal article confirming this information.

Cuba represents a threat to the national security of the United States in many fronts: biowarfare, cyberwarfare, gathering  intelligence information, alliances with iran, North Korea, China, penetrating many countries through the disguise of medical, IT, engineering assistance, in order to control their infrastructure. All of these fronts we have exposed for many years.

 What are the latest threats?



Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is asking the Department of Health and Human Services to look into whether the Cuban government is helping to scam the U.S. Medicare system.
The Hill reports that Grassley "asked Health and Human Services officials testifying before the Senate Finance Committee whether they were aware of any evidence that Cuba might be involved in fraud." The department last month unveiled its top 10 most wanted Medicare fraud fugitives and 7 of the 10 had ties to Cuba.
The allegations of potential meddling by Cuba surfaced last month in coverage of a University of Miami report that quoted an anonymous former Cuban official as suggesting that the government in Havana is "orchestrating and assisting" in large-scale Medicare fraud in the U.S.
Federal authorities began cracking down on Medicare offenders in 2005, leading to the prosecution of some 3,000 defendants charged with bilking the federal healthcare program. But in all those cases, prosecutors have never asserted that the Cuban government was orchestrating any of the Medicare rackets run by Cuban exiles in South Florida.
FBI and Health and Human Services agents have said privately that they’ve always wondered if the Castro brothers were behind the wave of Medicare cases, but haven't been able to uncover any proof linking the Cuban government to the widespread fraud in Miami and beyond.

FBI struggling to catch dozens of fraud fugitives hiding in Cuba


As Medicare crime spreads across South Florida, accused scammers are escaping in droves to Cuba and other Latin American countries to avoid prosecution — with more than 150 fugitives now wanted for stealing hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. healthcare program, according to the FBI and court records.

The tally of fugitives charged with healthcare fraud here has tripled since 2008, when The Miami Herald first reported on the phenomenon of Cuban immigrants joining the Medicare rackets and fleeing to evade trial in Miami.
But during the past three years, the FBI has captured only 16 fugitives, reflecting the difficulty in catching Spanish-speaking suspects who head south to hide out. Most of the fugitives were born in Cuba, immigrated to South Florida after 1990 and can easily live under the radar in Latin America with hundreds of thousands or millions in taxpayer dollars fleeced from Medicare.
Even if fugitives can be located in Cuba, there’s no way to get them back because of the political realities at play.
“They go to Cuba so they can’t be caught,’’ said Rolando Betancourt, a longtime Miami bail bondsman who has tracked one Medicare fugitive to Havana. “You can find anybody in Cuba; you just can’t arrest them.’’
Because so many of the Medicare defendants are Cuban, rumors have swirled for years that the Castro government has purposely trained and deployed immigrants to take over Medicare-licensed clinics in South Florida, and then harbored them after they returned home. But federal agents and prosecutors, while privately speculating about an official Cuba connection, say they’ve never uncovered evidence linking Fidel and Raul Castro’s regime to the rampant healthcare fraud on this side of the Florida Straits.
Moreover, the feds have made no official attempts to seek extradition of fugitives in Cuba, mainly because the United States has no formal relations with the government. Agents have captured some Cuban fugitives returning from the island as they travel through Miami International Airport.
Repeated calls and emails seeking comment from the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, D.C., were not returned.
Earlier this year, a University of Miami report quoted a former Cuban intelligence official who suggested there were “strong indications” his government was either facilitating the Medicare fraud or providing safe harbor for fugitives in exchange for hard U.S. currency. But the report provided no examples.
Soon afterward, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, a Medicare watchdog for years, questioned Health and Human Services officials at a congressional hearing about the possible Cuban government link after the department’s inspector general posted a “Most Wanted” list of Medicare fugitives, and seven of the top 10 were Cuban.
Cuba watchers, legal experts and others who have witnessed South Florida’s ascendance as the nation’s Medicare fraud capital say the Cuban government’s involvement would not be that far fetched — though they have no proof to back it up.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if one day that is proven to be a fact,” said Miami attorney Sam Rabin. One of his clients, Eduardo Moreno, fled to Cuba after posting a $450,000 bond in 2007 on healthcare fraud charges. He had collected $2 million from Medicare on bogus claims for medical equipment and HIV services.
“I think it would be very hard for someone with millions in currency to stay under the radar in Cuba” without that government’s protection, Rabin added.
Andy Gomez, a senior fellow at the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies, said he has heard from sources in Miami and Cuba allegations that the Castro government extorts Medicare bounty from criminals who are allowed to go back and forth between here and the island nation. But he said he knows of no evidence directly implicating the Castro regime in the fraud.
“The Cuban government knows what’s going on,” Gomez said. “The government knows who the fugitives are, and the bigger they are, the more the government expects to be paid by them. ... It’s a way to obtain hard currency and a way to discredit the Cuban-American exile community.”
James Cason, who served as chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana from 2002-2005, said he was not aware of the fugitive phenomenon during his tenure, but noted that relaxed travel restrictions in recent years have enabled Cubans to fly more easily between Havana and Miami. He said it’s highly probable that the Cuban government shakes down Medicare fraud fugitives, but doubts its direct involvement in the healthcare scams.
“There is no way the Cuban government wouldn’t know about this,” said Cason, who was recently elected mayor of Coral Gables. “Whether the Cuban government is involved or not [in Medicare fraud], the Cuban government wants the hard currency from the fugitives.”
Cason called the Medicare offenders “scammers, not revolutionaries,” saying the FBI should try to work with the Justice and State departments to engage Cuba in extraditing some of the fugitives.
“The Cuban government will investigate if they think it’s in their interest,” he said. “But I bet the FBI hasn’t asked them.”
Officials for the FBI and Justice declined to comment. A spokesman for the State Department also declined to comment on Medicare fraud fugitives, but said that the federal government has sought the extradition of fugitives in Cuba wanted for other serious crimes.
Four years ago, Eduardo Moreno, the Miami-Dade man who had collected $2 million from the government program and fled back to Cuba, became the poster boy for Medicare fraud fugitives. The feds featured him in a news conference with a “Most Wanted” mug shot along with a photo of his $200,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Moreno, who bail bondsman Betancourt believes is running a Havana disc jockey business for clubs, weddings and other events, is among 54 fugitives identified by the FBI who collectively submitted at least $545 million in fraudulent bills to the Medicare program in the last six years, according to federal court and other records.
From those claims, Medicare paid the fugitives a total of $218 million, records show.
An additional 102 defendants have been charged with Medicare fraud under sealed indictments, but the FBI has been unable to arrest them because they have fled South Florida or the country.
The U.S. attorney’s office keeps the suspects’ names under wraps so they won’t know that they’ve been charged — sometimes leading to fortuitous situations when the defendant reenters the United States and gets arrested.
The FBI says the 156 Medicare fraud fugitives from Miami-Dade and other parts of South Florida comprise the majority of fugitives charged with ripping off the program nationwide.
Still, since 2008, the FBI has struggled to capture Medicare fraud fugitives, especially those who flee abroad. Of the 54 named fugitives, 26 are believed to be in Cuba and the rest in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and other Latin American countries.
The bureau, working from 2008 to 2011 with foreign governments except Cuba, captured and arrested 16 fugitives charged with pocketing $83 million from Medicare. Of those, four were known to have fled to Cuba and were apprehended when they returned via Miami International Airport.
FBI agents and federal prosecutors say several factors have fueled the fugitive trend. One is sheer volume: Since 2006, the U.S. attorney’s office in Miami has prosecuted about 1,200 defendants on Medicare fraud charges, accounting for one-third of all such cases in the country.
Also, federal judges have issued much tougher sentences, with the average prison term ranging from five to 15 years. Last month, a physician convicted of writing phony prescriptions for unnecessary HIV therapy was sentenced to 20 years.
Another influential factor: In 2008, Chief U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno of Miami, troubled by the rising tide of fugitives — including some with bonds who fled the country after being convicted — advised his fellow judges to set higher bail for Medicare-fraud offenders.
“They realized that although it’s a white-collar crime, there’s still a risk of flight,” said FBI special agent Bryan Piper.
Also at play: The lure of a quick and easy buck for new Cuban arrivals. Some established clinic operators recruit the Cuban migrants to pose as “straw owners” of their Medicare businesses to protect the real owners’ identities. Then, the migrants are sent back to the island with a pocket full of cash as part of the deal.
The leader of one $100 million HIV-clinic scam in Miami-Dade and other parts of the Southeast admitted that he recruited three Cubans “with the understanding that the ‘straw’ owners would flee to Cuba to avoid law enforcement detection or capture,” according to court records.
Michel De Jesus Huarte pleaded guilty in 2009 to fraud charges and was sentenced to 22 years in prison. His accused recruits — Orlin Tamayo Quinonez, Juan Carralero and Madelin Barbara Machado — are suspected of having fled to Cuba, the FBI says.
Huarte’s accused business partner, Ramon Fonseca, is believed to be in Venezuela.
The Miami FBI’s toughest case involves the Benitez brothers — Jose, Luis and Carlos — who owned and operated a dozen HIV-therapy clinics in Miami-Dade. They allegedly filed $119 million in false claims with Medicare, raking in a whopping $84 million.
The Cuban-born brothers, who fled to the Dominican Republic before being indicted in May 2008, are accused of funneling millions through sham companies to finance their purchase of luxury toys and properties in that country.
Their acquisitions included homes, motels, apartments, land, cars, boats, horses, a helicopter, a distribution plant leased to Coca-Cola, and a hotel flanked by water- and dinosaur-theme parks, all in the areas of Punta Cana, Bavaro, Higüey and the capital, Santo Domingo.
“They became little entrepreneurs with their Medicare money,” said FBI special agent Ellen Lapp, adding that Dominican authorities have helped the United States seize the Benitezes’ properties so they can be sold by the Marshals Service to pay back the Medicare program.
In the past 15 years Cuba has been involved in the illegal entrance, not only of Cuban natives, but persons from other countries, to the United States. This is done through speed boats, or through Mejico’s borders with the United States. The objectives are two:

1.    Infiltration of possible members of terrorist and intelligence activities


2.    Source of dollars for the Cuban government


World Report: Hezbollah Sets up Shop in Cuba

Cuba has allowed a group of Hezbollah operatives to establish a base for external terrorist operations in the region, according to the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera.

Reports of a Hezbollah base on Cuba are still in the early stages, but Investor’s Business Daily has already referred to the base described by Corriere as “Cuba’s Terror Smoking Gun,” and wrote of the operation’s details that:

“Three Hezbollah terrorists operating out of Mexico have left that country to establish a permanent ”bridgehead” to the communist island, calling their clandestine operation “The Caribbean Dossier.” Twenty-three other terrorists from the Iran-linked terror group are expected to join the operation, which has a startup budget of more than $500,000…Corriere reported that the mission in Cuba is to provide logistical support for upcoming terrorist attacks planned in the hemisphere.”

Hezbollah has been considered active in Latin America for years, particularly South America’s Tri-Border area. There have also been press reports on the strengthening ties between Mexican drug cartels and the terrorist group.

    Cuba, obviously, represents a very serious threat to the security of the United States

A scary story

"I was born in one country, raised in another.
My father was born in another country.
I was not his only child.
He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father—-not my mother.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy.
No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.
I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
I became active in local politics in my 30's then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40's.
They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.
I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.
Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.
This bolstered my ego.
At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy...
I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.
But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy.
I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.
I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.
It was the free market, banks and corporations.
I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
I called mine "A People's Campaign."
That sounded good to all people.
I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.
I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world...
So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities".
My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.
I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with.
I'm glad they didn't.
Then I became the most powerful man in the world.
And then the world learned the truth.
Who am I?

If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE, you should be scared, very scared!"

Regulatory changes limited and unclear

Rescission of mandate only complete solution

Continue urging passage of Respect for Rights of Conscience Act

WASHINGTON – The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have issued the following statement:

The Catholic bishops have long supported access to life-affirming healthcare for all, and the conscience rights of everyone involved in the complex process of providing that healthcare. That is why we raisedtwo serious objections to the "preventive services" regulation issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in August 2011.

First, we objected to the rule forcing private health plans — nationwide, by the stroke of a bureaucrat's pen—to cover sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion. All the other mandated "preventive services" prevent disease, and pregnancy is not a disease. Moreover, forcing plans to cover abortifacients violates existing federal conscience laws. Therefore, we called for the rescission of the mandate altogether.

Second, we explained that the mandate would impose a burden of unprecedented reach and severity on the consciences of those who consider such "services" immoral: insurers forced to write policies including this coverage; employers and schools forced to sponsor and subsidize the coverage; and individual employees and students forced to pay premiums for the coverage. We therefore urged HHS, if it insisted on keeping the mandate, to provide a conscience exemption for all of these stakeholders—not just the extremely small subset of "religious employers" that HHS proposed to exempt initially.

Today, the President has done two things.

First, he has decided to retain HHS's nationwide mandate of insurance coverage of sterilization and contraception, including some abortifacients. This is both unsupported in the law and remains a grave moral concern. We cannot fail to reiterate this, even as so many would focus exclusively on the question of religious liberty.

Second, the President has announced some changes in how that mandate will be administered, which is still unclear in its details. As far as we can tell at this point, the change appears to have the following basic con tours:

·It would still mandate that all insurers must include coverage for the objectionable services in all the policies they would write. At this point, it would appear that self-insuring religious employers, and religious insurance companies, are not exempt from this mandate.

·It would allow non-profit, religious employers to declare that they do not offer such coverage. But the employee and insurer may separately agree to add that coverage. The employee would not have to pay any additional amount to obtain this coverage, and the coverage would be provided as a part of the employer's policy, not as a separate rider.

·Finally, we are told that the one-year extension on the effective date (from August 1, 2012 to August 1, 2013) is available to any non-profit religious employer who desires it, without any government application or approval process.

These changes require careful moral analysis, and moreover, appear subject to some measure of change. But we note at the outset that the lack of clear protection for key stakeholders—for self-insured religious employers; for religious and secular for-profit employers; for secular non-profit employers; for religious insurers; and for individuals—is unacceptable and must be corrected. And in the case where the employee and insurer agree to add the objectionable coverage, that coverage is still provided as a part of the objecting employer's plan, financed in the same way as the rest of the coverage offered by the objecting employer. This, too, raises serious moral concerns.

We just received information about this proposal for the first time this morning; we were not consulted in advance. Some information we have is in writing and some is oral. We will, of course, continue t o press for the greatest conscience protection we can secure from the Executive Branch. But stepping away from the particulars, we note that today's proposal continues to involve needless government intrusion in the internal governance of religious institutions, and to threaten government coercion of religious people and groups to violate their most deeply held convictions. In a nation dedicated to religious liberty as its first and founding principle, we should not be limited to negotiating within these parameters. The only complete solution to this religious liberty problem is for HHS to rescind the mandate of these objectionable services.

We will therefore continue—with no less vigor, no less sense of urgency—our efforts to correct this problem through the other two branches of government. For example, we renew our call on Congress to pass, and the Administration to sign, the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act. And we renew our call to the Catho lic faithful, and to all our fellow Americans, to join together in this effort to protect religious liberty and freedom of conscience for all.

Medicare coverage

It's funny and perhaps not too far from the truth. Right now the services we are receiving for my stepmom are curtailed as compared to the services dad received a couple of years ago!
Medicare Coverage
The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, "Hello."
"Mrs. Sanders, please." "Speaking."
"Mrs Sanders, this is Dr. Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory. When your husband's doctor send his
biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well. We are now
uncertain which one belongs to your husband. Frankly, either way the results are not too good."
"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.
"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for HIV. (AIDS)
"We can't tell which is which."
"That's dreadful! Can you do the test again?" questioned Mr.s Sanders.
"Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay for these expensive tests one time."
"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"
"The folks at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.
If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him."

If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
Ronald Reagan

People judge Barak Hussein Obama with emotion, like the people in Cuba or Polonia/Poland or URSS at the beggining of that monster, the comunism. We must jugde people by what they do not for what they say. Vote with your brain not with your emotion. And that is all a matter of personal choice. 
When Clinton was in a office We had a balance budget. Then came Bush and Obama and the economy when in the shitter. Don't fall in love with a candidate. Educate yourself on the politics of this country before you make a decision.
