Media connection to Obamacare Navigator fraud videos
Project Veritas published a video showing members of the nonprofit National Urban League (NUL) appearing to counsel applicants to lie on their Obamacare forms and “defraud the federal government.” Alarming and quite a preview of the corruption that will come with our new bureaucracy. Helpful also to take a look at the connections between groups like these, our government, and the mainstream media.
It turns out, in the case of the NUL, all three come together quite tidily.
The NUL’s allegiance to Obamacare stems all the way from its president, Marc Morial, who sits on the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability. Morial is connected to more than the President — Capitol City Project reports:
The National Urban League (NUL) is gaining nationwide attention after being caught on tape by James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas suggesting undercover reporters lie on their Obamacare enrollment applications. The president of the group, Marc Morial, sits on an Obama advisory board.
Morial, the current President and CEO of NUL, is a former Louisiana State Senator and Mayor of New Orleans. On March 29, 2012, President Obama appointed him as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
Morial also has direct ties to the mainstream media. His wife, Michelle Miller, is a correspondent for CBS News and is based out of New York.
Media, government, and the nonprofit world — quite a threesome.

Does Mr. Morial have any connections to ACORN, the Working Families Party, the SEIU, etc? I wouldn’t be surprised. Instead of three-of-a-kind you might have a royal flush.
It would be interesting to ask the same questions of the leadership of the NUL Irving Community Center.
ACORN got its start in the Big Easy, I believe, so a connection wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
Media, government and the nonprofit world – the gathering of the stupid.
added your post on NUL to my post on video.
think I attributed correctly.
We knew it would be like this, given the parties involved, but it is still disgusting to see it.
Kudos to Project Veritas for shining a light on this corruption. Keep up the good work!
Just ACORN writ larger. The people, the motives, the methods — all the same. It never changes. Obamacare was always just another power-grabbing, data-mining, franchise-expanding ideological campaign. It was only about “healthcare” in the sense of how the healthcare industry represented an exploitable opportunity — the fattest one in the American landscape. The mission had nothing to do with improving, broadening, streamlining, economizing the healthcare and medical industry. Nothing. It was entirely about turning empowered citizens into slaves. They’ll do it by taking away your doctor as surely they’ll do it by taking away your gun as by taking away your dreams. The idea is to take away all options until you can see nothing but the giant edifice of government at every turn, can’t help but look at them in need and fear and supplication.
Who couldn’t have see this coming? And yet here we are. And James O’Keefe, a disciple of Breitbart and a reprobate pretty much despised by ALL the media is the only one doing the hard, dirty work to prove what we already know in our guts.
My 14 and 12 year old granddaughters went to their doc yesterday. They were given forms to fill out, with lots of questions, including:
Does anyone in your family own a gun?
If so, where is the gun kept?
This does not feel good, and it is not going to end well.
Low-information O-care navigators are doing irreparable harm to applicants when they advise against reporting non-W2 income streams.
First of all, the IRS has already decided that overestimating 2014 income in order to meet minimum poverty level amounts as defined under O-care will not be penalized. So reporting at least the poverty level amount for family income will assure that unfortunate sub-poverty level folks will qualify for ACA plans as opposed to getting stuck with inferior Medicaid coverage.
And since the IRS has decided not to enforce the O-care law as written, we cannot be very critical of the NUL. On the other hand, cheating on income tax filings has become the norm everywhere – from the Chicago South Side neighborhoods to 100 multimillionaires at Jupiter Island, FL.
I am sure that James O’Keefe will get more blame for this video than Obama will.
Seems to be no shortage of black women who have no remorse about promoting fraud and squandering of taxpayer money working for Obama. So many Bertha Lewis females seeking their own vigilante social justice.
Dunno’ if any viewed this from yesterday, but it was a brewski spewer..
Perhaps the most important point above is the fact that the wife of this bozo is a CBS correspondent–CBS is happy to keep quiet I’m sure, because its in their and all the other media outlets interest to protect their own (and the spouses)!
Not reporting (fill in the blank)? Why should they embarrass a rival network’s hubby or wife when a payback could embarrass them next week? No percentage in it.
they were fired.
If we could get the facts, we would find the majority of the new claims under Obama for SNAP, federal welfare, disability, Pigford, and other government giveaways were fraudulent. They don’t check on anyone who applies, and that word spreads quickly.
A reporter in NYC with a $60,000+ salary found three separate Obama-Phone providers who were willing to help her apply even knowing she was ineligible and already had an iPhone. All three applications were approved.
It’s not just widespread fraud, fraud is the new rule.
I don’t know if we would find a majority, or just a large, unconscionable percentage. But the trend is worrisome. They can vote for Obama and the Dems, and get a lot of free stuff as a result as their due. The goodies are sold as a safety net, but in actuality, with so many of them now, and with one public benefit working effectively as a gateway to the next, much of the parasite class can live decently well on the public dole with near free rent, healthcare, food, phones, and with air conditioning, flat screen TVs, computers, etc. All for pulling the lever for Obama and the Dems – at least once, and sometimes more.
Someone above mentioned the stubborn Scott’s-Irish, who still value thrift and hard work. This to some extent is the big divide developing in this country. Traditional American values of thrift, hard work, and individual responsibility, versus doing what it takes to get your due out of the common pot.
