I think everyone here knows I try to stay out of politics here on the Blog. In fact, I try to be an equal opportunity offender (although some occasional bias slips in)- unless it comes to Tobacco Legislation, DUI and Drug Enforcement and any stupid alcohol policies thrown out there.
Today – I breaking that mold.
I have lifted below the post on FreedomOutpost.Com almost verbatim (I inserted one addition – more on that later). Not because I want Blog Hits – but because I know some readers will not go to the real article to read it. I think this message MUST get out and I hope the people at Freedom Outpost understand. Please visit their site as well, because they do have some really interesting posts.
Anyway – I have often wondered what the endgame was – when you visit the Doctor or Hospital and they ask some invasive questions pertaining to Firearms in the Home, Tobacco Use and Alcohol Consumption….even when none of it pertains to the ailment you are seeking treatment for. Well – now it is starting to come to light.
“Clearly, any family may be visited by federally paid agents for almost any reason.” According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted. The Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the “high-risk” categories below:
- Families where mom is not yet 21.
- Eligible families that have a history of substance abuse or need substance abuse treatment. (added by S&B – Does DUI, Mandatory Alcohol Treatment due to DUI or misdemeanors where alcohol was involved fall under this caveat?)
- Families where someone is a tobacco user.
- Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.
- Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
- There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.”
In 2011, the HHS announced $224 million will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.” Individuals from the state will implement these leveraging strategies to “enhance program sustainability.”
Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states,
“This is not a “voluntary” program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to “intervention” in “school readiness” and “social-emotional developmental indicators.” A farm family may be subject to “intervention” in order to “prevent child injuries.” The sky is the limit.
Although the Obama administration would claim the provision applies only to Medicaid families, the new statute, by its own definition, has no such limitation. Intervention may be with any family for any reason. It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain medications and vaccines and even having more limited – or no – interaction with parents. The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”
Part of the program will require massive data collecting of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source.
A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard and will require inspectors to verify safety compliance and record each inspection into a database.
Last session South Carolina Rep. Bill Chumley introduced a bill, H.3101 that would nullify certain provisions of Obamacare. The bill would give the state attorney general the authority to authorize law enforcement to arrest federal agents for trespassing. It would make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in South Carolina. It passed in the House but died in the senate. Kent Brown and Rep. Rick Quinn discuss “forced” home inspections under Obamacare in the video below.
