FW: Sarah Palin’s Facebook lies

Michael —

A lot of folks use Facebook to stay in touch with friends and family. For Sarah Palin, it’s a great way to spread lies about health insurance reform.

A few months back, Palin took to Facebook to declare that health reform would create “death panels,” and drive private insurers out of business — and nonpartisan fact-check sites and the independent Congressional Budget Office debunked those lies.

But that hasn’t stopped Sarah Palin. She’s back with a new Facebook note claiming that reform will raise costs on families and drive up deficits. Unfortunately for her, even the conservative “Tax Foundation” says those claims are false.

So we’re calling out Sarah Palin, and taking to Facebook to debunk her lies on the very same pages she’s using to spread them.

Call ’em out: Sarah Palin. Watch the video, make a call, spread the word on Facebook.

We’ve put together a short Facebook note cataloging just some of Sarah Palin’s many distortions and the facts that prove her wrong. But we need your help to “share” the note and make sure she doesn’t get away with her outrageous lies.

If Sarah Palin wants to spread lies on Facebook, we’ll call her out in the very same place. And when thousands of folks share our note and expose her lies, it will be clear that those who lie about reform will be held accountable — no matter where they spread their misinformation.

The more we push back with the truth, the more Sarah Palin and others like her will have to think twice before they promote lies, and the less they’ll be able to derail progress.

Even if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can still help us call out Sarah Palin. Visit Call ’em Out: Sarah Palin to watch our video detailing her lies and to call Palin’s political organization and say, “stop lying.”

Rising health care costs are crushing American families and squeezing small businesses. Reform will reign in costs and cut the deficit in the long run — that’s why it’s so important, and why Sarah Palin’s lies are so malicious.

We’re not letting it stand. We’re calling Sarah Palin out:

A call to action



From: info@barackobama.com
Subject: A call to action

Obama for America

Mickel —

This morning, Michelle and I awoke to some surprising and humbling news. At 6 a.m., we received word that I’d been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.

To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize — men and women who’ve inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.

But I also know that throughout history the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it’s also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.

That is why I’ve said that I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations and all peoples to confront the common challenges of the 21st century. These challenges won’t all be met during my presidency, or even my lifetime. But I know these challenges can be met so long as it’s recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.

This award — and the call to action that comes with it — does not belong simply to me or my administration; it belongs to all people around the world who have fought for justice and for peace. And most of all, it belongs to you, the men and women of America, who have dared to hope and have worked so hard to make our world a little better.

So today we humbly recommit to the important work that we’ve begun together. I’m grateful that you’ve stood with me thus far, and I’m honored to continue our vital work in the years to come.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

FW: Bachmann’s “pants on fire!” lies



To: mickel@primalspirit.com
From: democraticparty@democrats.org
Subject: Bachmann’s “pants on fire!” lies

Untitled Document

Media_https3amazonaws_nhwgo

Mary Lynn & Mickel —

“A gross distortion.” “Pants on fire!” “False.” That’s what the independent PolitiFact site said about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s health reform lies.

In fact, PolitiFact has rated six of her statements, and all of them have been either “false” or “pants on fire” false. As PolitiFact’s Bill Adair said, “she has the distinction of a perfect record.”

Let that sink in for a second. Together, we’ve made thousands of calls and written hundreds of letters calling out folks who are lying about reform. But Bachmann is in a class all to herself.

Too many Americans live with the painful consequences of our broken health care system to let Bachmann’s reckless lies go unchecked. So this week, we’re calling her out.

Call ’em out: Michele Bachmann. Watch the video, call her office, spread the word.

In the last week, while Republicans such as former Senator Bill Frist and former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson were putting progress ahead of partisanship by speaking constructively about reform, Rep. Bachmann was on the floor of the House of Representatives spreading fear and lies yet again.

And Bachmann specializes in making lies personal — like her outrageous claim that Ezekiel Emanuel, one of President Obama’s health care advisers, believes health care should be reserved for the non-disabled — so “watch out if you’re disabled.” (“We rule Bachmann’s statement ‘False,'” says PolitiFact).

Bachmann has promoted the death panels lie (“False,” say the Associate Press and New York Times). She’s lied about illegal immigrants receiving taxpayer-subsidized care under reform. And she claimed reform was a “national takeover of health care.” The nonpartisan FactCheck.org plainly refuted her on both accounts.

Last week, she even claimed reform will create “sex clinics” at schools, allowing students to have abortions without parental consent. That earned her one of her many “pants on fire!” false ratings from PolitiFact.

It all adds up to someone who will tell any lie, distort any fact, and shamelessly scare folks about reform in order to kill it. We’ve had enough — so we’re calling her out:

FW: 100,000 calls to Congress

Michael —

While millions of Americans deal with the painful consequences of our broken health care system, the insurance lobby is spending millions to try to delay and kill health reform.

So we need to speak up, drown out the lobbyists, and send a message to Congress: It’s time to deliver on health reform.

Read the email below from Organizing for America director Mitch Stewart, and then help us generate 100,000 calls to Congress by calling your representatives today:

http://www.democrats.org/TTDCall

Thanks,

Jen

Subject: 100,000 calls to Congress

Friend —

Jenny U. from Missouri did what any parent would: When her son needed a kidney, she donated one of hers. But she didn’t realize insurance companies would use her kindness as an excuse to never cover her again, calling her donation a “pre-existing condition.”

Now, insurance companies are spending millions on a campaign of lies to kill health reform that would help folks like Jenny. So, today, with crucial negotiations taking place in Congress, we’re raising our voices and making it clear: It’s time to deliver on reform.

We’ve set a big goal: 100,000 calls to Congress made or committed to in a single day. To hit it, we’ll need your help — will you take 3 minutes to call Congress now?

Call your representatives and tell them: It’s Time to Deliver on health reform.

Media_httpwwwbarackob_fghkk

Health insurance reform is finally ready for consideration by the full Congress, and hundreds of insurance company lobbyists on Capitol Hill are working overtime to kill it. Calling is quick and easy, but effective — and your voice has tremendous power at this critical moment.

After you make your call, tell the staffer who picks up where you live and that you’re counting on Congress to deliver on health reform. Let them know that Americans like you support the President’s plan — and that if your representatives are working to pass it, they have your thanks.

If we hit 100,000 calls made or committed to, we’ll send an unmistakable signal that this time, families must come before insurance companies. We’ll be tracking progress toward our goal publicly — make sure to report your call back to us so we can count it:

FW: It’s time to deliver


Organizing for America

Media_httpmybarackoba_atakv

After months of negotiations, the health reform debate is about to move to the full Congress for the first time. With the insurance industry lobby pulling out all the stops to derail progress, we need everyone who supports reform to weigh in. So here’s the plan: Set a new OFA record by getting 100,000 calls to Congress placed or committed to on a single day.

On Tuesday, October 20th, OFA volunteers will gather at “Time to Deliver” call parties and neighborhood outreach events across the country. We’ll get together in living rooms and public locations, and reach out to friendly voters whose voices are particularly critical in this debate. We’ll talk to them about the President’s plan and then we’ll ask them to call on their representatives to support reform.

President Obama will be joining a call party and then speaking directly to all the other events that evening via an exclusive live webcast, sharing the latest info on the fight for reform and our campaign for change.

It’s an ambitious plan — and it depends on you. Find a “Time to Deliver” event near you, or sign up to host one in your area.

Media_httpwwwbarackob_gjmkj

Participating (or hosting) is surprisingly easy. No special experience is required, and we’ll provide simple step-by-step instructions. You’ll gather with friends, neighbors, and OFA supporters from nearby, and together you’ll have a great time while making a huge difference.

We’re closer to health reform now than we’ve ever been, but we must not take anything for granted. The insurance industry is throwing millions of dollars a day and an army of lobbyists at Congress to stop reform.

If we can get 100,000 calls to Congress placed or committed to on a single day it will ensure the people’s voices are heard louder than the lobbyists — but it won’t be easy. Everything hinges on folks like you stepping up and joining in.

Can we count on you? Please sign up to attend or host a Time to Deliver event on October 20th:

FW: The insurance lobby’s lies


Untitled Document

Media_https3amazonaws_ehbih

After fighting health reform with lies, deceit, and multi-million dollar ad campaigns, the health insurance lobby — America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) — recently released a report on the “effects of health reform.” Surprise! It’s full of flawed claims that reform would increase costs

Many journalists and experts called the report “deceptive” and “implausible.” Even the firm that wrote it now admits they only looked at parts of the health reform plan — because that’s what the insurance lobby paid them to do. It’s exactly what we should expect from an industry that’s been fighting tooth and nail to kill reform, and is now preparing an all-out assault.

We’re not going to take it sitting down. So this week, we’re calling out the health insurance lobby.

The lobby has invested millions trying to convince Congress to oppose reform. So this week, we’re not simply debunking lies: The best way to Call ’em Out is to cut through the spin and tell our representatives to say “no” to deceitful lobbyists and “yes” to reform.

Call ’em Out: Health Insurance Lobby. Send a message urging Congress to stand with voters, not lobbyists.

This isn’t the first time the health insurance lobby has lied, cheated, or used misleading reports. This false report is just the latest salvo in a multi-million dollar offensive that appears designed to frighten voters and bully Congress into opposing reform.

In fact, just days after releasing the report, the lobby announced they will spend a million dollars on a television ad filled with debunked claims of Medicare cuts that could scare seniors away from supporting health reform.

We need your help to call out the insurance lobby and make sure our representatives understand that we’re counting on them to stand strong against their pressure.

Visit Call ’em Out: Health Insurance Lobby, and help fight back. Share a video debunking the health insurance lobby’s lies with your friends. Spread the word about their deceit on Facebook and Twitter. And most importantly, tell your members of Congress to say “no” to insurance lobby pressure.

Soon, health reform will be taken up by the entire House and Senate, and the insurance lobby will take their attacks to a new level. Their lies will grow more extreme — and it will be more important than ever that our voices are louder than those of the Washington lobbyists.

Call out the health insurance lobby today:

FW: Subject: Swine Flu & the vaccine


Date: Mon, 12 Oct 2009 19:12:11 -0700
From: Mary Beth, Washington State
To: xxxx@xxxxx.xxxx, xxxxx.xxxx.xxxx, xxxxxx.xxxx.xxxx, ……………………..

Subject: Swine Flu & the vaccine

I just received this email.  Thought I
would pass it along.  It goes along with what Andrea was told yesterday
when she took Taylor to the ER.  The nurse was talking to Andrea and
she advised her not to take it or give it to the kids.
She said that anyone who takes the vaccine is infectious to others for up to 3 days.
My great-niece in California took the vaccine last week and within 2 or 3 days she was diagnosed with swine flu.
Something for all to think about.

-Mary Beth               

                                                                                                                                        
                

                                                                           No one should take the swine flu vaccine—it
is one of the most dangerous    vaccines ever devised. It contains an
immune adjuvant called squalene (MF-59) which has been shown to cause
severe autoimmune disorders such as 
MS, rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf War syndrome, which killed over 10,000       
soldiers and caused a 200% increase in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This virus H1N1 kills by causing a “cytokine storm”,
which means that it cause the body’s immune system to overreact and
that is why it is killing young people and is a mild disease in the
elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems.)
This vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real
possibility of making the lethality of the virus much greater.         
                                                                       
     
  One’s best protection is vitamin D3. One should take 5000
IU a day now and when the disease begins to spread increase the dose to
15,000 IU a day. Vitamin D3
modulates the immun reaction, reducing the chance of an overreaction
and stimulates the body to produce what are called     antimicrobial
peptides, which are powerful killers of viruses that does not involve
immunity. This is dose related, which means the higher the dose of
vitamin D3 the better the protection. Fish oils (the best is  Carlson’s
Norwegian lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One
teaspoon a day should be sufficient. For severe    symptoms, one
teaspoon twice a day. Antioxidants of various kins also help—this
includes, quercetin, curcumin, grapeseed extract, vitamin C and natural
vitamin E. A good multivitamin/mineral such as Extend Core (www.vrp.com)
is also essential.                                                    
           Feel free to spread this around. People need to know how to
protect themselves.
