Now that we have affirmation on WHY the website does not work. Lets take a look at how it’s put together and follow the network.  (HatTip Fantasia for some links)

privacySometimes looking into the engineering side of the new Obamacare Cyber Construction (Rabbit Hole) makes you wonder…..

In 2010 when the ACA (Obamacare) was passed it was 2,700 pages, 381,517 words, formulating a bill that no-one read before it was voted on; and “we’d have to pass it to see what’s in it”.

In 2013 Obamacare, and the accompanying regulation which compromise it’s construct, is now 10,535 pages long (11,588,500 words).  Thirty times larger than the initial construct and so massive that no-one knows what it all means in totality.

So a website to sign people up for it needed to be constructed.

Where did the feds turn?  To a previously authorized cyber engineering firm, CGI, who held a very special status –  “Indefinite Delivery and Indefinite Quantity.”   As the Washington Examiner outlined:

Federal officials considered only one firm to design the Obamacare health insurance exchange website that has performed abysmally since its Oct. 1 debut.

Rather than open the contracting process to a competitive public solicitation with multiple bidders, officials in the Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid accepted a sole bidder, CGI Federal, the U.S. subsidiary of a Canadian company with an uneven record of IT pricing and contract performance.

CMS officials are tight-lipped about why CGI was chosen or how it happened. They also refuse to say if other firms competed with CGI, or if there was ever a public solicitation for building Healthcare.gov, the backbone of Obamacare’s problem-plagued web portal.

Instead, it appears they used what amounts to a federal procurement system loophole to award the work to the Canadian firm.  […] 

In awarding the Healthcare.gov contract, CMS relied on a little-known federal contracting system called ID/IQ, which is government jargon for “Indefinite Delivery and Indefinite Quantity.”

CGI was a much smaller vendor when it was approved by HHS in 2007. With the approval, CGI became eligible for multiple awards without public notice and in circumvention of the normal competitive bidding procurement process.

The multiple awards were in the form of “task orders” for projects of widely varying size. Over the life of the CGI contract — which expires in 2017 — the IT firm can receive awards worth anywhere from the “$1,000 to $4 billion,” according to a contracting document provided by CGI to the Washington Examiner.

This is apparently the route chosen by CMS officials in awarding the Obamacare Healthcare.gov website design contract to CGI.

Between 2009 and 2013, CMS officials awarded 185 separate task orders to CGI totaling $678 million for work of all kinds, according to USAspending.gov, a federal spending database.  The Obamacare website design contract was for $93 million.  (link)

United States Cyber CommandBut who exactly is CGI and how do they relate to the U.S. Federal Government?

CGI owns another company called Silver Oak Solutions (SOS) which specializes in business construction platforms which take advantage of large government contracts.   Seemingly innocuous until you look into what SOS controls under their proprietary development.

Through the development of its own proprietary Spend Management offerings called PRISM®, [SOS] grew from under $1 million in revenue in 1999 to over $23 million in 2005.  During this period, Silver Oak Solutions emerged as the pioneer and clear market leader in the government / public sector, which represents a $100 billion total market opportunity.   (link)

“PRISM®” might be familiar to you because of NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden.  This UK Guardian article is from July 2013 and was one of the first to reveal the NSA super-secret cyber spying program on Americans.

PRISM scandal: tech giants flatly deny allowing NSA direct access to servers

Silicon Valley executives insist they did not know of secret PRISM program that grants access to emails and search history. 

[…]  Two different versions of the PRISM scandal were emerging on Thursday with Silicon Valley executives denying all knowledge of the top secret program that gives the National Security Agency direct access to the internet giants’ servers.

The eavesdropping program is detailed in the form of PowerPoint slides in a leaked NSA document, seen and authenticated by the Guardian, which states that it is based on “legally-compelled collection” but operates with the “assistance of communications providers in the US.”

Each of the 41 slides in the document displays prominently the corporate logos of the tech companies claimed to be taking part in PRISM.

However, senior executives from the internet companies expressed surprise and shock and insisted that no direct access to servers had been offered to any government agency.

The top-secret NSA briefing presentation set out details of the PRISM program, which it said granted access to records such as emails, chat conversations, voice calls, documents and more. The presentation the listed dates when document collection began for each company, and said PRISM enabled “direct access from the servers of these US service providers: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Paltalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple“.  (link)

So let me pause before moving forward.    The “international” company who was quietly awarded a no-bid contract to build the Obamacare website is the same company who operates the PRISM® platform which the NSA uses to gather phone, data, telecommunication, social media, and e-mail transmissions for review.    Got it?

Okay, lets move forward.

Forward, because recently it has come to light the NSA is doing a little more than just “gathering” innocuous information.   As the Washington Post outlined just yesterday:

edward-snowdenNSA collects millions of e-mail address books globally - The National Security Agency is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world, many of them belonging to Americans, according to senior intelligence officials and top-secret documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

The collection program, which has not been disclosed before, intercepts e-mail address books and “buddy lists” from instant messaging services as they move across global data links. Online services often transmit those contacts when a user logs on, composes a message, or synchronizes a computer or mobile device with information stored on remote servers.

Rather than targeting individual users, the NSA is gathering contact lists in large numbers that amount to a sizable fraction of the world’s e-mail and instant messaging accounts. Analysis of that data enables the agency to search for hidden connections and to map relationships within a much smaller universe of foreign intelligence targets.

During a single day last year, the NSA’s Special Source Operations branch collected 444,743 e-mail address books from Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from Gmail and 22,881 from unspecified other providers, according to an internal NSA PowerPoint presentation. Those figures, described as a typical daily intake in the document, correspond to a rate of more than 250 million a year.

Each day, the presentation said, the NSA collects contacts from an estimated 500,000 buddy lists on live-chat services as well as from the inbox displays of Web-based e-mail accounts.

The collection depends on secret arrangements with foreign telecommunications companies or allied intelligence services in control of facilities that direct traffic along the Internet’s main data routes.

Although the collection takes place overseas, two senior U.S. intelligence officials acknowledged that it sweeps in the contacts of many Americans. They declined to offer an estimate but did not dispute that the number is likely to be in the millions or tens of millions.

A spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which oversees the NSA, said the agency “is focused on discovering and developing intelligence about valid foreign intelligence targets like terrorists, human traffickers and drug smugglers. We are not interested in personal information about ordinary Americans.”

The spokesman, Shawn Turner, added that rules approved by the attorney general require the NSA to “minimize the acquisition, use and dissemination” of information that identifies a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.   (read more)

So a mandatory taxation program (Obamacare) which has the enforcement arm of the IRS, and an additional 16,000 approved IRS agents,  yet contains no baseline “income verification” within the legislation, is being implemented by a data registry/collection platform which also provides the National Security Agency with data intelligence on American citizens.

Well at least now we know why CGI is operating out of Canada.    Because so long as the data collection is “international” the extent of the data mining by the NSA is unlimited.

And subsequently why would you need pre-registration income verification when every single aspect of your life, employer wages, income, banking, purchases, as well as e-mail and e-billing are just a few mouse clicks of inter-agency data bank assembly away from review?

Think about it.

Apparently, and factually, it is all well connected.

      You are absolutely correct. Any revival first requires repentance – genuine sorrow and regret for sins. However, many pastors avoid the issues of abortion, homosexuality, or pornography. As a result, the message of holiness is not delivered and true repentance is never experienced. Christ’s message was one of repentance, renewal, forgiveness, and regeneration. Compare this to the “liberation theology” viewpoint which, with the likes of Sharpton and Jackson, seeks out vengeance and misappropriation of resources to “liberate” (i.e., finance) oppressed peoples.

Someone once told me that the ,aim problem with the Japanese economy was that their banking and major industries were too closely connected to the Japanese government – government members and businessmen/bankers regularly swapped positions so no problems were really solved, just put into a new pigeon hole. Almost the same with the Feds and their ;little cabal of friendly contractors GCI’s prez was previously a top figure with AMS, another big Federal juggernaut contractor and board relationships with other businesses in the Federal realm. You can bet other board members have interlocking relationships with other businesses with Beltway positions and have lotsa heavy-hitter lobbyists on their payroll. Let’s also not forget that many higher-level Fed bureaucrats who are in a position to let contracts – also don’t forget military flag officers in that boat – get jobs with certain Fed contractors who ‘look on them kindly’. Crappy products are not unusual – in two Federal careers spanning over 40 years I was inundated in them. There used to be a High Tech Test Center (HTTC) at Ft Lewis many years ago where contractors would being off-the-wall stuff for the military to test for use in combat. Some stuff, like the ‘dune buggies’ SF uses, were great but so much garbage came down through Washington insiders we started calling the HTTC “Here Try This Crap”.

      Eisenhower warned us about it on the way out the door.

      Heritage gives a number for all those extra pages of regs added to the bill:

      http://blog.heritage.org/2013/10/15/obamacares-secret-is-out/

      “One of the reasons the Obamacare website has been so slow and glitchy? It requires people to enter personal information before they’re able to see insurance plan options. Health and Human Services does this so that if you’re eligible for a subsidy, you won’t see the true cost of your health plan.

      Obamacare is laden with mandates that are driving up the cost of health insurance. And it didn’t stop with the original law. Federal bureaucrats are continuing to write more Obamacare regulations. One estimate is that these paper pushers have added 30 words of regulations for every word in the original law.

      No small tweak to Obamacare can fix this. No small tweak can give relief to these hard-working dads who are supporting their families and getting the wind knocked out of them by hundreds of dollars in insurance hikes.

      If Congress does anything less than defund Obamacare, it is turning its back on all of these suffering Americans.”

      ————————-

      Given our national legislature’s inability to defund *anything*, I’m not holding my breath.

      We just got a notice that we can keep our current coverage with no changes. Not a peep about the premium increase. Maybe they think we’re too stupid to notice?

      We’ve been without paid steady employment for a couple of years but luckily we saved enough to live on for 10 years if we are very very careful. Will there be any social security then??

      Our small cottage has been free and clear for many years. Before this nightmare, I always looked at the health insurance as another kind of mortgage: we pay it and we get to keep our house if any humongous medical bills came along. So the monthly premiums seemed to be about right for the cost of the little lifesaver they throw you so you can tread water and not drown…

      We don’t dare go without now that the Baron has macular degeneration. The treatments have been scary but VERY effective, and they must continue if he wants to continue to see..I can hear some bureaucrat now…” nice vision you have there.

        Your story makes me so sad and angry and livid. In India they have a program started by a native schooled in the U.S. who is delivering cataract surgery to, I think, four communities now. He has set up a company in India that manufactures the lenses for $11 each. With a nurse and another doctor volunteer from the U.S. he has changed the lives of thousands — from young children to the very elderly — who lacking sight, became a burden vs. a contributing member of their family. Eleven dollars, 10 minute surgery, probably less than an hour for the pre-diagnosis and after care. Those with more wealth pay $100 or more, which funds the poorer families. Duh!

        That same surgery in the U.S. costs at least $3000. My mother’s insurance company paid $5000 over six years ago. That surgery plus $4 reading glasses have allowed her to go about her daily life with depth perception, so she is no longer falling or knocking over objects and, yes, she can drive, although we limit her to the “country” roads.

        I just realized my neighbor needs this surgery, but his insurance doesn’t cover “vision” care. How stupid. Let the poor man fall down the curb and break a hip because he can’t see correctly?

    On Aug. 12, Kimberly Dvorak reported for San Diego 6 News that Hastings at the time of his death was working on an exposé on CIA director John Brennan.

    In July, a source provided the station with an email hacked from “super secret CIA contractor” Stratfor’s President Fred Burton and subsequently posted on WikiLeaks that suggested Brennan was in charge of the Obama administration’s surveillance of investigative journalists.

  18. Okay, so here is something that occurred to me today:

    45,000,000 Americans lack health insurance. So far Obamacare has added an alleged 51,000 new Americans to the health insurance roles over the first 10 days. That averages out to 5,100 new individual policies per day.

    45,000,000 divided by 5,100 = 8,824 days until everyone is covered. 8,824 divided by 365 = 24+ years before everyone is covered. Assuming that population growth is zero.

    This rate is roughly 1,861,000 people per year being added. How about demographics? According to the world bank our population growth is currently = .7 % (which has dropped 30% since Obama took office – and a return to historical rates will make the numbers far worse).

    Source: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.POP.GROW

    This means that the US population is growing by ~ 2,300,000 people per year. Obamacare at it current rate is only adding 1,861,000 people per year. That leaves an additional new 438,000 American lacking health insurance per year if everyone here already has coverage.

    At this rate, not only is Obama not going to cover everyone, but every year the ranks of those uncovered will grow.

    Food for thought.

    Cheers,

    O.V.

      • If I may, as I have seen government contracts handed out, from the construction side.

        The government would have built language into the law or bill that earmarked this money, most likely something along the lines of “we reserve the right to select the contractor of our choosing, and it will be for ID/IQ, blah, blah, blah.”
        There might have been something in there that said, “The department of healthcare and human services, will select 5 (this number can be 2 if they want it to be, it would probably be noted somewhere in there) small businesses, based on submissions packages, that qualify to get on a ID/IQ comm infrastructure project contract, and bid various projects over the course of so many years.”. Pretty normal and simple so far.

        Once locked in, however-many they select, (possibly 2), because they ultimately choose who they want to use, eliminating the bidding process – would then bid on multiple projects over the course said designated years. What is 99.8 percent of time part of the law, and this is so you would help build businesses – there would have been a requirement to award a percentage based amount to the EACH contractor on the contract. (Usually a 8(a), SDVO, Minority, small business set aside, something like that – to help promote industry and build the economy by giving special privileges to certain businesses) But in there, are laws or articles, or clauses, in place that prevent the award of an ENTIRE ID/IQ contract to 1 company! Again pretty normal and the way 99.998% of Federal contracts work.

        The government does do what transpired fairly often it seems.

        http://www.redstate.com/aglanon/2011/11/21/obama-administration-sends-weapons-contract-to-foreign-company-with-ties-to-iran/

        BUT in my line of work I have never seen a contract put out, without the requirement of at least 2 contractors to bid so they can “spread the wealth,” if it isn’t a specific product say F-22 raptors. But what’s interesting is that the work taking place on American soil was awarded to 1 of 16 companies (GCI appointed by Bush in 2007) and they were Canadian, They don’t normally allow a contractor from outside the country to do that much work at one time $1000 to $4 BILLION, without at least splitting it up. How a Canadian company got this work is simple the “greased the wheels.” Or they were Buddy-Buddy with GW’a

        There are also complexities in the language, when talking about where materials come from and what can be used, and what percentage can be made outside of the US, and what percentage has to be Assembled here, if using parts from a certain country, because of Trade-Agreements. ALWAYS on a fed contract do you have to abide by the Trade-Agreements, always.

        You know though, if they happened to use parts for there system that were manufactured in say China or Thiland, it would be against Federal Law, No questions. It is a twisted game, and if you are friends with a senator or president, then all you need is two employees, and you can get on an ID/IQ contract- at least that’s what I gathered, been going about the wrong way the whole time – Huh!

        • I wonder what friend of McCeenls owns a construction company that builds dams, union affiliation is a toss up. Oh @sundance the only you left off your summary of things they can monitor and control with this program – electrify. I.e. the smart grid. That’s everything, I think. (I cant resist) End of times.

    Leave the dead horse alone. Where’s the scope of work for this government contract? Who in the Government accepts the web designs that the contractor continues to propose? That’s more pertinent for the future.

    Jeezus H….. This is WAY over the top.
    And to think those “other guys” had the GALL to complain about Halliburton, when basically all they were doing was underbidding everybody else.
