Update: Jump to the end for a new video linking Obama to Gruber’s deceptions.
Another day, another Gruber video drops where he demonstrates what a complete snot he is. As I said previously on #Grubergate, the man has a fundamental distaste for Democracy, and the #Grubergate chorus has gotten loud enough to force Obama to talk about it. Via Hot Air:
When asked directly if he or his administration had, as Gruber insisted, intentionally misled the public and oversight organizations like the Congressional Budget Office when they crafted the Accordable Care Act, Obama’s reply was terse and direct. “No,” he said. “I did not.”
Obama was joined on Sunday by Health and Human Services Sec. Sylvia Burwell who appeared on Meet the Press to distance herself and the administration from Gruber.
“I have to start with how fundamentally I disagree with his comments about the bill and about the American people,” she began emphatically.
Do read the whole thing, but, dear reader, you are looking at the website of a Google ninja. Just as the now-famous Rich Weinstein, a.k.a. @phillyrich1 went through publicly available videos and found the video that kicked off Grubergate, I have found another video previously available that also proves just how much the architect of Obamacare looks down on ordinary Americans, which I will share with you after the break.
Of course, this would be a patented Aaron “Worthing” Walker head fake. I kept saying the “architect of Obamacare,” making you think I was talking about Professor Gruber, but in fact I was talking about Obama himself. And as usual, there is a point to my head fakes. Obama may be distancing himself from Gruber’s disdain for the average American, but the evidence shows us overwhelmingly he shares it. Besides the infamous “clinging to guns and religion” comment we have Obama saying Americans are too uninvolved to understand that we can just keep going deeper and deeper into debt.
The truth is that Obama agrees, in principle, with everything Gruber has said. He fundamentally doesn’t believe in the essential wisdom of the American people, which is why he shoved Obamacare down our throats when the people clearly didn’t want it, and why he will probably shove some kind of amnesty down our throats after getting clubbed in the last election. Because fundamentally, he sees himself like a parent forcing a child to eat his or her vegetables: sure, they object, but that is because they don’t know what is good for them.
So as much as Obama might try to distance himself from Gruber, it is plainly a feint: he agrees with him on every point.
Update: Can I call it or what? I barely get done writing this post and I pop over to Hot Air to find... another video, this time Gruber saying explicitly that Obama was in on the deception.
In other words, for Obama opacity was a tremendous political advantage. The #Grubergate scandal has officially reached Obama. As W. James Antle III wrote:
For five years, Republicans have been searching for the perfect messenger to speak out against Obamacare.
They have finally found him. His name in Jonathan Gruber.
Indeed, it has gotten so bad that I am beginning to think that any day now we will reach the most ridiculous stage of any bad news for Democrats: when conspiracy theories start coming out of the woodwork. See whenever reality becomes sufficiently awful for liberals, they tend to claim that the whole thing is a set up, and we are about there. So expect soon for liberals to claim that Gruber was a plant, a mole, designed to worm his way into the creation of Obamacare and then blow it up at the right time.
(Never mind that the right time would have been several weeks before the election to create potentially a veto-proof majority in Congress (or at least get us close enough that a veto override would be in reach). Because facts and logic are beside the point with conspiracy theories like this.)
So, when you start seeing that shoe drop, you’ll know you read it here, first. Or maybe on my twitter feed.
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist (and adjudicated pedophile) Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years. I know that claim sounds fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence. If you would like to help in the fight to hold Mr. Kimberlin accountable, please hit the donation link on the right. And thank you.

I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct. In some cases, the conduct is even criminal. In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system. I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence. This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.
In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him. Do not call him. Do not write him a letter. Do not write him an email. Do not text-message him. Do not engage in any kind of directed communication. I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.
And for that matter, don’t go on his property. Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him. Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision. Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).
And do not contact his organizations, either. And most of all, leave his family alone.
The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report. And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request. That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.
And let me say something else. In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above. But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.
