Abortion and Planned Parenthood: the Scourge of Heaven

For the past eighteen months, I have been studying Marian apparitions from around the world:

Fatima
Medjugorje
Ecuador
Bayside, New York
Necedah, Wisconsin
Long Grove, Illinois
Belleville, Illinois
Guadalupe
Garabandal

…and many more.

The evidence of a Heavenly presence at these places is overwhelming and includes photographs of celestial beings, miracles of healing and conversion, eye-witness testimony, seers in ecstasy, and Fatima’s famous “Miracle of the Sun” which took place before 70,000 witnesses.

At each and every one of these locations, Mary, who is known in the Church as the Queen of Heaven, has steadfastly spoken of Heaven’s condemnation of abortion. Here’s a small portion of what the seers have reported her saying:

Bayside, New York: “A state of life exists now, far worse than it was in the time of Herod! The Holy Innocents were slaughtered, but your numbers now, of children being slaughtered are counted in the millions! Damnation is the eventual judgement upon any man or woman who takes any measure in the slaughter of the unborn!”

Ecuador: “Another great victory of satan is abortion, which is an attempt against the great blessing of the Father, life.”

Necedah, Wisconsin: “I came here most of all because of the little children… Millions of little unborn have found death in the most hideous and cruel way… the wailing and the death of millions of unborn are on all citizens’ consciences if they have one or not… It is not spoken of in the churches from the pulpits. They fear to offend their parishioners… Remember this, it is a life from the moment of conception. No medical man who is honest, can tell you otherwise. No Clergyman who is truthful, can tell you otherwise… ‘THOU SHALT NOT KILL.’ It is a mortal sin with the reward of eternal Hellfire. My children, STOP this terrible killing. STOP IT, or the chastisement will be so severe you will envy the dead.”

Long Grove, Illinois: “To all those who condone abortion: hear me now, for I tell you of your future. If you do not turn back now, mankind seeks a terrible chastisement from his God. Abortion is strictly murder. Mankind is murdering the Holy Innocents of today”

Belleville, Illinois: “My dear children, you cry and lament over loved ones lost in wars of this century, and fail to see how many of my tiniest dear children are killed in their mothers’ wombs every day, more than all of these past wars put together. I beseech you to pray, pray, pray that this great sin of abortion against the laws of God and man must come to an end. This is truly the work of satan.”

Fatima: Lucia said Mary spoke to her of the sin of babies being killed in the womb. At the time, Lucia didn’t understand what Mary was talking about.

I think the evidence is clear that abortion is a one-way ticket to eternal damnation in hell, not only for the mother who chooses to abort a human life, but also for the father, the doctor, the nurses, the abortion clinic’s administrative staff, organizations that support abortion (Planned Parenthood and others), politicians and judges who enact laws that legalize and support abortion, voters who cast their ballots for these same politicians and judges, media that supports abortion (books, movies, television, newspapers, websites, etc.), the people who either work for or own stock in those media companies, etc.

That’s a pretty long list, totaling hundreds of millions of people in our country alone. Across the world, it runs into the billions. Perhaps that’s why at Bayside, New York, Mary also said: “Souls are falling into hell faster than snowflakes that cascaded upon you in the worst part of your winters.”

Don’t kid yourself by thinking that you can be a good Christian, or a good Jew, or a good anything, who pretends to love and honor God, yet still support people like aka Obama, Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and others who ardently support abortion.

If that statement angers you, perhaps God is trying to tell you something. Remember, the truth hurts. If you feel remorse over supporting abortion in the past, God will forgive you. All you have to do is ask.

Eternal damnation is a long, long time.

By refusing to support any individual or organization that promotes abortion, by refusing to spend your money at any business that is not 100% pro-life, you remove yourself from this most terrible of sins.

Why not pass this on to someone you know who supports abortion? You may lose a friend, but end up saving a soul.

Today’s ObamaCare “What’s Up With That”

After 3-4-5 years of setting up the ObamaCare website, with the greatest minds money could buy from Belarus, I can only come to one conclusion. This was designed to fail on purpose. No other company in the history of the world has been so inept. The kids on the corner selling lemonade have a better business model. So might I say to all those in charge, I mean this from the bottom of my heart..

And I mean it.

And I mean it.

HealthCare.gov can’t handle appeals of enrollment errors

By , Published: February 2

Tens of thousands of people who discovered that HealthCare.gov made mistakes as they were signing up for a health plan are confronting a new roadblock: The government cannot yet fix the errors.

Roughly 22,000 Americans have filed appeals with the government to try to get mistakes corrected, according to internal government data obtained by The Washington Post. They contend that the computer system for the new federal online marketplace charged them too much for health insurance, steered them into the wrong insurance program or denied them coverage entirely.

For now, the appeals are sitting, untouched, inside a government computer. And an unknown number of consumers who are trying to get help through less formal means — by calling the health-care marketplace directly — are told that HealthCare.gov’s computer system is not yet allowing federal workers to go into enrollment records and change them, according to individuals inside and outside the government who are familiar with the situation.

“It is definitely frustrating and not fair,” said Addie Wilson, 27, who lives in Fairmont, W.Va., and earns $22,000 a year working with at-risk families. She said that she is paying $100 a month more than she should for her insurance and that her deductible is $4,000 too high.

When Wilson logged on to HealthCare.gov in late December, she needed coverage right away. Her old insurance was ending, and she was to have gallbladder surgery in January. But the Web site would not calculate the federal subsidy to which she knew she was entitled. Terrified to go without coverage, Wilson phoned a federal call center and took the advice she was given: Pay the full price now and appeal later.

Now she is stuck.

“I hope,” she said, “they really work on getting this fixed.”

The Obama administration has not made public the fact that the appeals system for the online marketplace is not working.spc_angry_smack puter_100-103

In recent weeks, legal advocates have been pressing administration officials, pointing out that rules for the online marketplace, created by the 2010 Affordable Care Act, guarantee due-process rights to timely hearings for Americans who think they have been improperly denied insurance or subsidies.

But at the moment, “there is no indication that infrastructure . . .necessary for conducting informal reviews and fair hearings has even been created, let alone become operational,” attorneys at the National Health Law Program said in a late-December letter to leaders of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the agency that oversees HealthCare.gov. The attorneys, who have been trying to exert leverage quietly behind the scenes, did not provide the letter to The Post but confirmed that they had sent it.

A CMS spokesman, Aaron Albright, said, “We are working to fully implement the appeals system.”

Three knowledgeable individuals, speaking on the condition of anonymity about internal discussions, said it is unclear when the appeals process will become available. So far, it is not among the top priorities for completing parts of the federal insurance exchange’s computer system that still do not work. Those include an electronic payment system for insurers, the computerized exchange of enrollment information with state Medicaid programs, and the ability to adjust people’s coverage to accommodate new babies and other major changes in life circumstance.

The exchange is supposed to allow consumers who want to file appeals to do so by computer, phone or mail. But only mail is available. The roughly 22,000 people who have appealed to date have filled out a seven-page form and mailed it to a federal contractor’s office in Kentucky, where the forms are scanned and then transferred to a computer system at CMS. For now, that is where the process stops

The part of the computer system that would allow agency workers to read and handle appeals   has not been built, 

AGHHHHHH!!

AGHH!

according to individuals familiar with the situation.

In the meantime, CMS is telling consumers with complaints about mistakes to return to the Web site and start over. “We are inviting those consumers back to HealthCare.gov, where they can reset and successfully finish their applications without needing to complete the appeals process,” said Albright, the agency spokesman. The rationale is that, since the computer system is working better now, it’s less likely to make mistakes.

Agency officials have no way of knowing how many people have taken that advice, according to two individuals familiar with the situation. The computer system containing the scanned appeals forms cannot yet communicate with HealthCare.gov’s enrollment database, so it is impossible to cross-check the information.

Across the country, a few specialists trained to help people enroll in the health plans point to examples in which withdrawing an application and starting over has solved the problem. But that is not a solution for everyone.

Starting over would not help Addie Wilson, for example, because she has already begun to pay for her new insurance and would have no way to get her money back. A few days before Christmas, Wilson was hospitalized with what turned out to be a gallbladder so infected that doctors inserted a drain so it would be safer by the time they operated — the first surgery of her life. She needed a health plan because her employer, the organization Home Base, was cutting off the Blue Cross-Blue Shield coverage she and her co-workers had, reasoning that they could find better choices on the new marketplace.

Given her salary, Wilson knew she was eligible for federal subsidies to help pay for her coverage. She was discharged from the hospital on Dec. 23, the insurance sign-up deadline; she did not yet know that CMS had quietly reset its computers to give people one more day to enroll. It had been weeks since the Obama administration had announced that the system was working smoothly, so she could not understand why the HealthCare.gov screen on her laptop, which should have calculated her subsidy, stubbornly refused to appear. She asked her boyfriend to try on his computer and her father to try on his. Nothing worked.

She called HealthCare.gov’s toll-free number, where, she said, a woman on the other end tried typing and then told her, “Well, it’s not working for me either.” The woman recommended that she choose a health plan at the too-high price and file an appeal. Since her Blue Cross coverage would end Dec. 31, she went back onto HealthCare.gov and picked a plan.

A failure to compute a subsidy is among a variety of mistakes the computer system has made. Another involves what some CMS and state Medicaid officials refer to as “loopers.” These are people who applied for coverage on HealthCare.gov and were told that their income was low enough to qualify for Medicaid. But when they went to their state Medicaid agency, they were told they were not eligible after all, and should get a private health plan through the marketplace. So they have “looped” back to the federal system, which is unable to fix the mistake.

The letter from the National Health Law Program describes families who are appealing for other reasons. In one instance, a North Carolina couple were told that they were eligible for subsidies to buy private policies and that their son was eligible for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which is public insurance for children of working-class families. But the computer told them that their daughter was eligible for nothing — an obvious mistake. At the time of the letter, the family was uninsured while waiting for a decision on its appeal.

In Fairmont, Wilson is waiting, too. In early January, she contacted her new health plan about her missing subsidy and asked what to do. She was told to pay the full insurance premium — $215 a month. She did. The next day, Brandon Williams, an enrollment counselor at a local health clinic, helped her check HealthCare.gov again. This time, the computer worked properly and showed that, with the subsidy, her monthly premium should be just $106 and her yearly deductible $617, not $4,750.

Wilson and Williams called the online marketplace and, after three hours on the phone, got only a promise from a supervisor that Wilson would hear from CMS’s “advance resolution team” within five days. The call didn’t come.

Wilson’s scheduled outpatient surgery turned into an expensive, five-day hospital stay after her doctors discovered her gallbladder had gangrene. Home after the ordeal, and dreading the hospital bill and her big deductible, Wilson called Williams, and they tried to reach the advance resolution team. They couldn’t get through. When the call from the team finally came, she said, a knowledgeable-sounding man told her, “The system is not set up to go into someone’s account and correct a mistake.”

With Williams’s help, she has filed an appeal. And she is waiting — waiting to be healed enough to drive so she can go back to work, waiting for someone to decide that she deserves her money back.

“These little kinks should have been worked out prior to this thing being launched,” she said. “This is one more thing stressing me out.”

DEM CASUALTY LIST GROWS

by MIKE FLYNN 30 Jan 2014

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/30/Dem-Casualty-List-Grows

Each week, it seems another Democrat lawmaker announces their retirement from Congress. On Thursday, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) joined the growing list. It is only January, but 11 Democrat lawmakers have said they are quitting at the end of this current term.

Sen. Max Baucus (MT)

Sen. Tom Harkin (IA)

Sen. Carl Levin (MI)

Sen. Jay Rockefeller (WV)

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY)

Rep. George Miller (CA)

Rep. Jim Moran (VA)

Rep. Jim Matheson (UT)

Rep. Mike McIntyre (NC)

Rep. Bill Owens (NY)

Rep. Henry Waxman (CA)

All the lawmakers, with the exception of Owens had a lot of seniority and would have been in line for Chairman gavels on important committees if Democrats took control of Congress. The retirements could be an indication of how unlikely they think that is.

Two of the House seats, in UT and NC, are almost guaranteed to flip to the Republicans. Romney won those districts by 40 and 19 points respectively. That means Democrats need to flip 19 seats now, rather than 17.

Who will be next for the door?

( Mama Pelosi is my hope ) 

Bye Bye,

Bye Bye,

Does Obamacare call for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning?

Death-Panel

Nancy Pelosi famously said in 2009 that “we must pass it [Obamacare] in order to find out what’s in it.”

Since the passage of the unAffordable Care Act, every day Americans are finding out the horrible things that are “in it” — taxes, higher health insurance premiums, cancellations of healthcare plans, loss of the doctors we like, all of which are contrary to what Pres. Lucifer had blithely promised.

So it’s understandable that our suspicions are now on high alert, bracing ourselves for more “surprises” to come while fearing the worst.

The other day, Dec. 29, 2013, FOTM commenter Tina wrote this alarming comment:

his so called obamacare, is in 150 diff languages so far. There is a medical code calling for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning ….

Another commenter James Mappy , who says he’s a 17-year Medical Claims Examiner for one of the top 2 HMOs in Minnesota, seconded Tina that indeed there is such a code. It is ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978: Legal execution.  Mappy states “I verify that this ICD9 code is [...] accurate.”

So what is ICD?

It is the World Heath Organization’s International Classification of Diseases.

From Wikipedia:

The International Classification of Diseases (also known by the abbreviation ICD) is the United Nations-sponsored World Health Organization’s “standard diagnostic tool for epidemiology, health management and clinical purposes.” The ICD is designed as a health care classification system, providing a system of diagnostic codes for classifying diseases, including nuanced classifications of a wide variety of signs, symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury or disease. This system is designed to map health conditions to corresponding generic categories together with specific variations, assigning for these a designated code, up to six characters long. Thus, major categories are designed to include a set of similar diseases.

The International Classification of Diseases is published by the World Health Organization (WHO) and used worldwide for morbidity and mortality statistics,reimbursement systems, and automated decision support in health care. This system is designed to promote international comparability in the collection, processing, classification, and presentation of these statistics. As in the case of the analogous (but limited to mental and behavioral disorders) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM, currently in version 5), the ICD is a major project to statistically classify health disorders, and provide diagnostic assistance. [...] The ICD is revised periodically and is currently in its tenth revision. [...]

What is ICD-9-CM?

From Wikipedia:

International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) is an adaption created by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and used in assigning diagnostic and procedure codes associated with inpatient, outpatient, and physician office utilization in the United States. The ICD-9-CM is based on the ICD-9 but provides for additional morbidity detail. It is updated annually on October 1.

Anyone can look up ICD-9-CM by going on the ICD9data website, which calls itself “The Web’s Free 2014 Medical Coding Reference” that:

takes the official 2006-2014 ICD-9-CM and HCPCS coding books and adds 5.3+ million links between codes. Combine that with a Google-powered search engine, drill-down navigation system and instant coding notes and it’s easier than ever to quickly find the medical coding information you need. ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. 

What is ICD-9-CM Diagnostic Code E978?

On the aforementioned ICD9data.com website, the ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code numbers E000-E999 are for “Supplementary Classification Of External Causes Of Injury And Poisoning.”

The 2013 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978 is “Legal execution”.

This is how the website describes ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978:

ICD-9-CM E978 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare.

ICD-9-CM E978 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.

In an update for the year 2014, the ICD9data.com website says:

2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code E978 (Final Revision)

Legal execution

  • This is the final revision to ICD-9-CM E978.
  • Beginning October 1, 2014, use an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes) instead of E978.
  • Until then, ICD-9-CM E978 is considered a billable medical code and can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.

That same Diagnosis Code E978: Legal Execution is found on the website of the federal government’s Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS.gov.

Together with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are the U.S. federal governmental agencies responsible for overseeing all changes and modifications to the ICD-9-CM. The CMS is located at 7500 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21244.

Here’s a screenshot I took from CMS.gov (click to enlarge):

legal execution

This is how Wikipedia describes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), previously known as the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), is a federal agency within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with state governments to administer Medicaid, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and health insurance portability standards. In addition to these programs, CMS has other responsibilities, including the administrative simplification standards from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), quality standards in long-term care facilities (more commonly referred to as nursing homes) through its survey and certification process, clinical laboratory quality standards under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments, and oversight of Healthcare.gov.

Indeed, on the CMS’s “About” page, it lists the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov as one of the CMS’s websites.

To conclude, while there is no medical code in Obamacare “calling for gas chambers, guillotines, poisoning,” there is a medical code (E978) for “legal execution.”

We don’t know what the term “legal execution” means.

“Execution” means to put to death. Murder by the state is deemed “legal” by the state. See, for example, the National Defense Authorization Act — that grotesque piece of legislation approved by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Lucifer, which “authorizes” the U.S. government to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens, without trial.

“Legal execution” can take many forms, among which conceivably can be “gas chamber, guillotine, poisoning.”

We should all ask why the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (and therefore the Obamacare website that the CMS oversees) has a medical code for legal execution — a medical code that “is considered a billable medical code and can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.”

50 pearls of wisdom to help you through life

Americans increasingly are maxed out on stress and depression. Millions are teetering on the emotional brink; some have gone over the brink, as attested by news headlines. (More on that in my next post.)

Here are 50 helpful pearls of wisdom from Regina Brett, originally published in Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer on Sunday, May 28, 2006.

I don’t know why emails perpetrate the fiction that Brett was 90 years old. Age does not equate with wisdom; some get more evil. Just look at:

Regina Brett’s 45 life lessons and 5 to grow on

Regina BrettBy Regina Brett, The Plain Dealer
rbrett@plaind.com, 216-999-6328

Republished September 20, 2007

To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.

It is the most-requested column I’ve ever written. My odometer rolls over to 50 this week, so here’s an update:

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.

16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: “In five years, will this matter?”

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

35. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

36. Growing old beats the alternative – dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.

38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

41. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

42. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

45. The best is yet to come.

46. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

47. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

48. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

49. Yield.

50. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

The old cow

dead cow

Nancy is riding along in her limo when a cow jumps out into the road, the car hits it full on, and the car comes to a stop.

Nancy , in her usual charming manner, says to the chauffeur, “You get out and check. You were driving.”

So the chauffeur gets out, checks, and reports that the animal is dead but it was an old cow.

“You were driving, so you go and tell the farmer,” says Nancy.

Two hours later, the chauffeur returns totally plastered, hair ruffled with a big grin on his face.

Nancy exclaims, “My God! What happened to you?”

Still smiling, the chauffeur replies, “When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whiskey. The wife gave me a wonderful meal and their daughter made love to me.”

“What on earth did you say?” asks Nancy.

“I just knocked on the door and when it opened, I said to them ‘I’m Nancy Pelosi’s chauffeur, and I just killed the old cow.’”
