(NaturalNews) The mainstream media loves Obamacare. They love it so much that when the disastrous launch of the healthcare.gov system was evident to anyone with an IQ above room temperature, the media tried to cover it up for over a week, repeating the ridiculous White House spin that claimed the site was only crashing "because it was so popular." (Yes, people who call themselves "journalists" actually bought into this hoax.)

When that excuse crashed and burned, the media tried to say the glitches and error messages were no big deal because the site had a "new deadline" of mid-November, and it would probably be fixed by then.

Immediately after the site launch, I went public with an analysis of the website, concluding that Healthcare.gov was nothing short of an IT disaster with zero chance of functioning by January 1. Since then, other programmers and IT project managers have independently confirmed what I found, and the consensus among programmers is now quite clear: Healthcare.gov won't work in a week, a month or even three months. It may actually take years to get working correctly, if ever.

This fact is finally starting to sink into the minds of mainstream media journalists. Now, two weeks after attempting to deny reality, the mainstream media is reversing course and actually beginning to scream about the disastrous launch of Obamacare by HHS / Kathleen Sebelius. They are only attacking this, of course, because the disaster makes democrats look incompetent and stupid, and they hate it when that happens because the entire paradigm of centralized government elitism is based on the assumption that democrats are smarter than everyone else (and government is more capable than any other institution).

Here are just a few examples of mainstream media websites going off on Healthcare.gov:

Forbes.com: Obamacare's Website Is Crashing Because It Doesn't Want You To Know How Costly Its Plans Are

CNN: After Two Weeks CNN Reporter Still Hasn't Been Able To Sign Up For ObamaCare

Ezra Klein: "Obamacare is a big failure"

Anderson Cooper: White House is lying about enrollment numbers

Daily Kos (a hard-left liberal site): "Now, because of Obamacare, my wife's rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284. I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any f##king penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?" The author goes on to say, "I realize I will probably get screamed at for posting this, but I can't imagine I am the only Californian who just received a rate increase from Kaiser based on these new laws."

Washington Post: "The Affordable Care Act's launch has been a failure" -- "disaster" -- "Is anybody going to be fired?"

Republicans made huge tactical error by focusing the nation's news cycles on the GOP instead of Healthcare.gov

On that last article above, Ezra Klein makes one point that's frighteningly accurate: the GOP made a huge tactical error in the timing of the government shutdown debacle vs. the Healthcare.gov launch. Instead of the mainstream media focusing on all the failures of Healthcare.gov and the "rate shock" now greeting Americans who try to enroll, they spent the last two weeks bashing Republicans and Tea Party members, thereby distracting the nation from the absolutely disastrous failure of the Obama administration's milestone launch of Obamacare.

The GOP has utterly failed to communicate the real story on this disastrous launch to the American people. Instead of news stories talking about all the people who have wasted hundreds of hours trying to sign up via a broken IT system, the media has spent most of that time denigrating Ted Cruz and other members of the GOP, all while John Boehner displayed what might go down in history as the worst example of House leadership in history.

Thanks to the disastrously disorganized Republicans, the public is hearing only one story right now: Everything is the GOP's fault! And the catastrophic launch of Healthcare.gov is getting a free pass. Somehow, this monumental failure of an incompetent administration is being sidelined in favor of a GOP bash-fest.

The real Obamacare disaster is yet to come

The media, you see, would rather deliver a beating to the GOP than discuss the far more serious issue of how Obama's flagship legislation is actually supposed to work come January 1. Because the real story here -- the story the media is totally missing -- is the unprecedented disaster that's going to unfold across this nation when the Obamacare system utterly fails to function by January 1.

What then? How will doctors, clinics and hospitals function when millions of people start showing up and demanding health care services even though they aren't actually enrolled in the system? When hospitals are being overrun with people who "thought" they signed up -- will Obama find yet another twisted way to blame Republicans?

The real issue here is that Democrats tend to be great communicators and Republicans tend to be terrible communicators. Democrats, however, are terrible economists while Republicans tend to be far better economists. What this means is that on any given issue, Democrats are far better able to tell their side of the story even though their approach is often the worst when it comes to real-world solutions.

The Obamacare fairy tale will soon evaporate

That's how we ended up with a president who is actually little more than a salesperson... a weaver of tall tales. Obamacare, we now know, was a fairy tale, yet it was sold so expertly that many Americans still somehow believe they are about to receive "free" health care just as soon as those little "glitches" get ironed out on Healthcare.gov.

Denial is not just a river in Egypt. It's also the cornerstone philosophy of politics in America. We can't fix the real problems facing this nation until we first concede that problems exist (infinite debt spending, out-of-control government, the erosion of civil liberties, etc). The very people who dare admit to having any connection with reality -- people like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz -- are viciously attacked by everyone, including their own party members.

I want to see someone in Washington who has some guts. I don't care if they're Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Independent. We need men and women with backbone to stand up and resist this mad hurling of the nation into the fiscal abyss. Where has sanity gone? Why does the president refer to people who want to pull us back from the edge of financial collapse as "arsonists?" If we do not stop the unlimited debt spending now, when will it ever stop?

Obama has doubled our national debt. We are at $17 trillion and climbing, plus another $125 trillion in unfunded liabilities. These numbers will crush America's economic future, yet the only thing these kleptocrats in Washington seem to care about is whether their "gang" (party) ends up on top after the fallout settles.

What you are watching unfold in America today is pure madness. The ending chapter of this saga will not be pretty, and it will not be something you want to ride out with anything less than a full supply of storable food, non-hybrid seeds, spare cash, emergency medicine, self defense items and all the usual preparedness gear.
