Obama Fans Can’t Believe Their President Wanted This to Happen – The Rush Limbaugh Show

Obama Fans Can’t Believe Their President Wanted This to Happen – The Rush Limbaugh Show.


RUSH:  It was an LA Times story on Obamacare, and these are popping up more and more.  An Obamacare fan says, “Now I can’t sleep at night.  I can’t imagine this is how President Obama wanted it to happen.”  No matter what problems that they’ve had at the website or the exchanges, you can find some Obamacare supporters who’ve touted the relative success of some of the state exchanges.  One of the ones they point to is Covered California, as a success.

But now, people who have been able to sign up with Covered California, are discovering that doctors are refusing to see ’em. Doctors are refusing to treat cancer patients. This is another thing, folks. I can’t tell you how many times that I… I hate doing this. I hate, “See, I Told You So,” and I don’t want to be misunderstood with this.  What really frustrates me is this need not have happened.

This tragedy, this destruction of one of the greatest health care systems the world’s ever known, need not have happened.  I know it has, but it’s still tragic.  Some doctors are not seeing cancer patients, the doctors that are choosing to not be in network.  This is the thing that I spent a lot of time warning people about. Even if you are able to log in, sign on and enroll, some of you were gonna find out your doctors are not playing.

They don’t want any part of this.

They’re not gonna be the network.

Some of you, your hospitals are not gonna be in the network, the Obamacare network.

In fact, the top-tier hospitals across the country are pretty much all opted out of the network.  LA Times: “After overcoming website glitches and long waits to get Obamacare, some patients are now running into frustrating new roadblocks at the doctor’s office. A month into the most sweeping changes to healthcare in half a century, people are having trouble finding doctors at all, getting faulty information on which ones are covered and receiving little help from insurers swamped by new business.

“Experts have warned for months that the logjam was inevitable. But the extent of the problems is taking by surprise many patients — and even doctors — as frustrations mount.”  Now, this is where I run the risk of getting into trouble, but none of this surprises me.  It was all predictable.  This is how frustrating it is.  When you know that 2 + 2 = 4 and the country’s gonna act like it’s 5, would that not frustrate you?  I wish I could come up with a better analogy than that.

It’s just outrageous.  There was no way for this to fall out any other way than how it is, and they point to California as one of the successes.  Some patients plaintively say this is not what they were promised.  “Aliso Viejo resident Danielle Nelson said Anthem Blue Cross promised half a dozen times that her oncologists,” that’s cancer doctors, for those of you in Rio Linda, “would be covered under her new policy.

“She was diagnosed last year with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and discovered a suspicious lump near her jaw in early January. But when she went to her oncologist’s office, she promptly encountered a bright orange sign saying that Covered California plans are not accepted.” She went to her doctor, and her doctor isn’t playing.  She said, “I’m a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act, but now I can’t sleep at night. I can’t imagine this is how President Obama wanted it to happen.”

The truthful answer to that, Ms. Nelson…

I’m gonna assume you’re listening.  I’m gonna speak to you from my heart.  I’m just gonna tell you the truth.  I know you’re gonna reject it, and you’re gonna couple it with whatever you think you’ve heard about me from the media, but I’m gonna tell you right now, President Obama didn’t care.  He doesn’t even know you.  This is the kind of minutia and detail that he either just assumed would magically work because it was his idea or because were there competent people implementing it.

But, no. He knew that wasn’t the case because he knew his own website wasn’t working.  Oh, have you heard the latest on that?  How many times have you heard Obama bellyache and whine and moan about outsourcing?  His own is in Belarus — and that’s one of the reasons why it’s a security nightmare.  I’m not making it up., part of it is outsourced and is run by an outfit in Belarus.  Russia, for those of you in Rio Linda.

So, Ms. Nelson, I’m just telling you: President Obama doesn’t care.  What President Obama cares about is having the government in charge of and in control of the nation’s health care system — and what the president eventually wants is for you to only be able to solve your problem by going to somebody in government.  President Obama wants government to be looked at as a god by you or as an angel.

President Obama wants you and everybody he can convince to look at government as their only chance, as their last resort, as their first resort, as their angel, as their savior, as their guardian angel, guiding light, what have you — and if it takes a little pain along the way to get there? He doesn’t mind if you get mad at your doctor, by the way.  He doesn’t mind if you get mad at your insurance company.  In fact, the madder you get at your insurance company the faster he can get rid of that and have the government become your insurance company.

Now, folks, I’m really not persuading Danielle Nelson while I tell her this.  I know that.  I wish there was a way to do it.  But she’s out there, she wants the president to fix it. “Oh, gosh, if Obama knew, he wouldn’t permit this!”  He doesn’t care.  He’ll say he does, but this is so beneath the long-range objective here.  This is so minuscule in relevance to the long-term objective here, that it’s just one of the small prices to pay.  There gonna be glitches along the way to getting it right.

By the way, I expect if enough people have this problem, the president will try to find a way to blame it on the Republicans or George Bush.  Is it the wrong thing to say?  I mean, I could sit here and maybe try to reach her another way.  I could say, “Well, Ms. Nelson, this is exactly how it was designed to happen because of what the real long-term objective is.” That’s not gonna work.  She’s not gonna be persuaded by that.  This is a very personal issue.

This is what really rips me apart, folks, because these Democrats have turned all of this into the most important thing in people’s lives, and they’re out there playing with it like a political football and a game and a toy to be bandied about for votes — and as a tool to expand the size and scope and the reach of government in people’s lives.  “I’m a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act,” you shouldn’t have been,” and now I can’t sleep and I can’t imagine this is how President Obama wanted it to happen. “

Ms. Nelson, it didn’t have a prayer of working the way it’s designed, the way it’s implemented, and the people behind it, it never had a prayer of working.  The evidence is all around.  I cringe to see people used this way, their lives manipulated and toyed with.  Now this woman’s got non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  She doesn’t have any options.  They’ve been taken away from her.  She thought they were all gonna be amplified better than ever.  She probably believe that the Affordable Care Act was the cheaper health care act, and some of it was gonna be free but, whatever, it was gonna be plentiful.  I just hate what this is doing to people.  I just hate what this ideology does.  It rips families apart, it destroys incentive, founded on one lie after another.


RUSH:  No.  Here’s the thing about Danielle Nelson.  She says, “I’m a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act, but now I can’t sleep at night.  I can’t imagine this is how President Obama wanted it to happen.”  See, I feel sad for her, ’cause I think that’s a sad way of thinking.  “Oh, if only Obama knew, he would fix everything.”  It’s like when it’s discovered that somebody in Obama’s cabinet is a communist sympathizer, “Man, how’d that get past Obama?”  What do you mean, how’d it get past Obama?  It didn’t.  “If only Obama knew, he would fix everything.”  This is the way citizens of Third World banana republics think about their strongman dictators.  “Oh, if they just knew, I’m sure they didn’t mean it.  I’m sure they didn’t intend this to happen.”

If the reality of being turned down for treatment of cancer — folks, stop and think of this.  If the reality of being turned down for treatment of cancer can’t convince her, how can anyone?  What could anyone say?  So she’s not blaming Obama.  He’d fix it if he knew.  So somebody, in her mind, is sabotaging her health care.  Not him.  Maybe her doctors don’t want to give their services away.  Maybe the doctors want to charge too much.  Maybe Obama knows the doctors aren’t any good.  Who knows what she’ll come up with to explain this.


RUSH:  Tom in Spring, Texas.  Welcome to the EIB Network.  Hello, sir.

CALLER:  Good afternoon to you, sir.  It’s an honor and quite a privilege to talk with you today.

RUSH:  I appreciate you being here.  Thank you very much for that.

CALLER:  Everybody should realize when the CBO makes an estimate, they’re gonna be wrong generally most of the time. So if they’re saying it’s only two and a half million jobs to be lost, you can almost guarantee it’s gonna be significantly higher than that.

RUSH:  Well, let me tell you why that’s true, and with all due deference to the CBO, they are limited by law for projecting 10 years out.  That’s why the first 10-year projection came in the way it did.  They can only analyze the data they’re given.  They’re called bipartisan, but if you got a bunch of cheats and frauds giving them incorrect data, you’re gonna come out with gobbledygook, and that’s what happened.  We got a lie.  We got health care is gonna cost less than a trillion dollars.  We got premiums coming down, more people covered, all of it was a lie.  So now the 10-year period covers four years of implementation, and we’ve added an additional four years to the original 10, and that’s where they’re saying two and a half million jobs lost.  If you go another five years after that, using just the data now — you’re right.  The two and a half million jobs lost is gonna be even more.  That’s even more people liberated from the responsibility of working.

CALLER:  And when this happens, the people dropping out of the workforce, being pushed to part-time work or leaving the workforce, that’s gonna increase the premiums to the people and that’s gonna increase the cost to the government, so this is just another way to accelerate the economic collapse, and then it goes to intent.  And the intent all along, as you so eloquently put it, is what we’re seeing happen, because if this wasn’t the intent, they would make a change.  But not only will Obama not change —

RUSH:  See, that is the key right there, folks.  You know, you’d be charitable to say, “Okay, gross incompetence, people’s good intentions but didn’t know what they were doing and too embarrassed to admit it so they’re trying to make the best of it.” Or, it was intentional. Either way, there’s enough data, and not just on health care, but on every other economic policy, there’s five years of data now.  It isn’t working!  If they really wanted it to work the way the poor woman in the LA Times wants it to work, they would change it.  They would make the changes necessary to make it work.  Now, what are those changes?  Those changes would be admitting that they’re wrong.  And that is never going to happen because they aren’t wrong, because the sad fact is, this is the intent.  You can’t get around it.  There’s enough years now, like you say, if this isn’t the intent, change it, fix it.  Get it back on the right track.  No effort whatsoever to do so.

CALLER:  And not only that, but Obama has said, “If you won’t work with me, I’m gonna use executive order to move forward on my agenda.”

RUSH:  Exactly right.  And not only that, rather than admit it’s not working, they’re continuing to try to sell it.  They are bribing. I’ve got the story here. I put it in the middle ofthe Stack.  The way they are getting Millennials to sign up, I’ll give you the short version of this.  They are, 18-34, they are bribing some to sign up.  They’re paying Millennials if they succeed in registering new enrollees.  We have also found out — remember, ladies and gentlemen, when we learned that the National Football League was going to be helping the Regime? It turns out that the Obama administration sat down and wrote some bulk boilerplate tweets and Facebook posts and sent those to the NFL Players Association, the union, and the union just assigned them to random players.

The players themselves did not write those pitches.  They didn’t write those tweets or messages.  They didn’t write the salesmanship.  They just had their names attached to it.  So rather than take any step to fix it, they are continuing to try to sell it.  That’s what Obama’s constant campaigning is about.  They’re trying to sell this.  In other words, this poor woman, as identified by the LA Times: “Hang in there.  Hang in there.  It’s gonna work. We’re on the case. We’re gonna fix it.”  It’s fraud at the base minimum, what’s happening here.  But it’s all permitted in politics.  It’s hard to prove fraud in politics.  You indict the whole industry.

But you’re gonna have two things happen.  You’re gonna have 2.3 million fewer people pulling the wagon, 2.3 million more people riding in the wagon, 2.3 million fewer full-time workers will mean much lower taxes to pay for these and other government benefits.  The question remains, are the American people gonna swallow it?

See, I don’t think they are.  I think the polling data clearly indicates that they aren’t, but I don’t know what they can do about it.  Or, better stated, I don’t know what they think they can do about it, other than find a way to not participate in it for themselves.  It’s gonna be a free-for-all, you know, everybody for himself, which, in normal circumstances, would not be bad thing, but it’s just such a tragic thing.  It just didn’t have to happen.

Folks, this is not like lamenting the fact that Denver lost the Super Bowl.  “Oh, this didn’t have to happen.  Why, if Denver…”  This is a whole different thing.  We are in this circumstance because a giant fraud has been perpetrated on the American people by the political class of the country.  And what it’s doing to people and their lives… you take away the desire, necessity, to work, you’re effectively dehumanizing people.  You are taking away from many people one of the primary sources of their confidence, self-identity, reason for being, particularly in men, but in more and more women now with feminism and so forth making its giant strides.  It’s just a tragic thing here that’s happening, and it’s turning more and more people into satisfied wards of the state.

And when you have organizations like the New York Times come along, “Oh, hey, these two and a half million people, there’s nothing wrong here.  They have been liberated from the choice of having to be in a job they only had to have health care benefits.  Now, because of the brilliance of Obama, they’ve got their benefits, but they don’t have to be locked in a job they hate.”

it was an inside job

The Best TheBlaze Comment
9/11 Truther Disrupts Post-Super Bowl Press Conference in a Big Way

sorry, your ‘look at the video’ attitude is ridiculous and the underlying ‘theories’ that have been advanced have been thoroughly debunked.

Instead of being thankful that engineering allowed those buildings to withstand that impact force at speed jumbo jets fully loaded with fuel (and larger than the buildings had been designed to tolerate) striking, and instead of being toppled immediately standing long enough for thousands to escape, a petty fearful self-important few choose to believe that a conspiracy that would have necessarily involved hundreds of people has been kept completely silent for more than a decade…

It doesn’t happen, mike, and arguing the contrary is providing our enemies with ammunition and our allies with doubt that the sheeple of America will ever throw off the yoke of big government tyranny and resume the mantle of world leadership.

Bin Laden never claimed it was an inside job. There are plenty of REAL things to be suspicious of your government about, stop wasting time with fantasies.

Government is collective oppression

Listen to what the progressive liberal Democrats are saying to you. They tell you that you can’t do stuff without them. That the deck is stacked against you, that you’re simply not good enough to run your own life to make your own choices. I simply don’t agree with them. Conservative libertarians don’t agree with them, we know that you are the best one to run your life. We know that you are the best one to make your own life choices. The only obstacles that are in your way are those obstacles that you have put in your way and that the government has put in your way. If someone is telling you that the deck is stacked against you it is because they are the ones that are holding the cards. If someone is telling you that you can’t do something without them it’s because they’re trying to control. You don’t just listen to what the Democrats are saying for your evidence that they are trying to control you and oppress. You look at what they are doing, government is not freedom and government is not individual responsibility, individual prosperity or individual freedom. Government is collective oppression.

I promise to fight laws that take away your freedom

Hello I’m Jon Senter ex-heavy equipment operator, maintenance, fuel lube, everything man. After I got hurt in 2000 and with my dyslexia I had real trouble finding a job. I started playing around with websites, it turns out I wasn’t half bad at it. My little business, making and managing sites for non-profits, went to crap after the election of BHO and the Dem takeover…

I believe with my whole being that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

I promise to bring you the truth as it is where ever I find it, with logic, facts and humor as my sword & shield I will go forth and do battle with the progressive agenda of big government and little freedom.
I promise to raise a ruckus when and where I can to expose the lie of big government.
I promise to  put the Federal Government back into the confines of the Constitution.
I promise to fight laws that take away your freedom and to pass laws that give it back. (by pass I mean repeal, the action of revoking or annulling a law or congressional act)

I Promise to do the best I can, while staying true to my self, to free US.

before you eat tuna read this

Japan radiation poisoning America?.

This is an issue of significant importance to the United States since, according to the National Marine Fisheries Service, the U.S. imported almost 45 million pounds of fish from Japan in 2012.

There is evidence the radioactive water emanating from the plants starting two years ago has made its way into the ocean currents and will soon start to affect the ecosystems in North America as early as the spring of 2014.

Some say it is already here.

Reports are coming in that the North American food supply is already being affected by Fukushima.

Bluefin tuna caught off the San Diego coast is showing evidence of radioactive contamination. This is the first time that a migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity 3,000 miles from Fukushima to the U.S. Pacific coast. It is a nutrition source that accounts for approximately 20,000 tons of the world’s food supply each year.

According to the report published by the National Academy of Sciences, “We report unequivocal evidence that Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, transported Fukushima-derived radionuclides across the entire North Pacific Ocean.”

“We were frankly kind of startled,” said Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting the findings online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

“That’s a big ocean. To swim across it and still retain these radionuclides is pretty amazing,” Fisher said.

To rule out the possibility the radiation found in the tuna was carried by ocean currents or dropped into the ocean through rainfall from the atmosphere, the team also analyzed Yellowfin tuna, found in the eastern Pacific, and Bluefin that migrated to Southern California before the nuclear crisis. They found no trace of cesium-134 and only background levels of cesium-137 left over from nuclear weapons testing in the 1960s.

The report went on to say: “The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. But even so, that’s still far below safe-to-eat limits set by the U.S. and Japanese governments.”

The results were surprising enough to conduct further tests this coming summer with a larger sampling of migratory fish. The tuna that were the subject of the previous study were exposed to radiation from Fukushima for approximately one month. The upcoming study will be looking at fish that have been swimming in radioactive waters for a longer period.

They will also be expanding their study to cover other migratory species including sea turtles, sharks and seabirds.


To provide funding to Veterans with PTSD

Veteran Josh Schutt’s Story Living with PTSD

on Tuesday, 27 August 2013. Posted in Service Protection Dogs for World PeaceVeterans with PTSDGerman Shepherds,Service Dogs

spdwp logo


In June 2013 We officially launched our Veterans with PTSD Programming through our Non Profit Arm Service Protection Dogs For World Peace.  

Our Mission:  To provide funding to Veterans with PTSD or other neurological disorders and individuals who have a need for help from a service protection dog,  where they might otherwise not be able to acquire a service dog.

We are currently working with Veteran Josh Schutt, Philadelphia, PA who served for six years in the US Army including 2 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Josh lives with PTSD and TBI.  His daily life struggle is documented on his facebook  page Help Support A Veteran.  Josh came to GatorlandK9 and Service Protection Dogs For World Peace four months ago.  We are actively working toward his goal of funding a service dog.

Josh has opened up his world to all of you.   This is his story.


Josh Schutt’s  Story


I served in the US Army from 1998 until October, 2004. I was medically discharged due to injuries I suffered in Iraq.


I was injured in Iraq on Aug 1, 2003, when my weapon, a .50 cal machine gun, misfired and exploded on me and I was left only holding what they call the butterfly handles. My body immediately went into shock, so I didn’t feel any pain but I did recognize the severity of my injuries. My bleeding was very significant so I wasn’t sure that I was going to make. It took three hours to get to the closest medical unit. When I got to the MASH unit, I explained to the doctor what happened and he was so shocked he lost all the color in his face. He said he couldn’t believe that I was alive, let alone awake. I took shrapnel to my leg and my stomach. He immediately had to operate on me to remove the metal throughout my body. I spent a week in Iraq until I became stable enough to be transported to Germany. Once I was there, many tests were run and they were able to partially close up some of my wounds. I spent another week there before I was sent to Walter Reid where they proceeded to run more tests, close up the rest of my wounds and made sure I was healing. Once they ruled out internal bleeding, I was released.


I was medically discharge from the military for my physically injuries. However, my emotional and psychological injuries were a lot harder to recover from.  For the next few years, I spent a lot of time looking at the bottom of a beer mug and trying to avoid everyone and anything.  I could not sleep unless I drank enough to pass out and when I did fall asleep, I would wake up screaming and sweaty from the nightmares.  I experienced a lot while in Iraq and I was having trouble learning to live a normal life again. I didn’t know what was going on or how to deal with it. I finally went to the VA where I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). PTSD is a type of anxiety disorder usually caused by a life threatening event(s). It is diagnosed when someone experiences recurring flashbacks and high levels of anxiety that continue a month after the traumatic event.


My doctors suggested a multitude of medications but they weren’t enough.  I finally came across something called a PTSD service dog and after researching, I realized they had helped many Veterans like me deal with PTSD. I discovered that having a PTSD service dog would allow me to live a more normal life. For example, I am constantly looking around to make sure there aren’t any snipers or IUDs hidden in my surrounding but the sense of security the service dog will give me will allow me to relax.  It will also wake me up when I have night terrors, which are frequent. It will help me to go out and be social in big crowds, which I typically avoid. If it senses me getting stressed, a PTSD dog is trained to calm me back down avoiding a full blown panic attack.


The challenge with obtaining a specially trained service dog is that they cost more than I can afford due to the fact that the training is so extensive that is takes years to complete. There are many agencies out there that offer free dogs to Veterans but they have an extremely long waiting list and I have dealt with this for way too long.

▶ Women Ends Fight Against Home Demolition

We just had a older lady have her house demolished because San Antonio city code knocked it down before the holidays saying it was unsafe. This town has so many programs to help the Spanish speaking poor , teen moms, and Sec 8ers who need homes and even send Habit for Humanity out to help fix up old houses. This is not the town I grew up in, this is commie Castro’s city now. They let illegal aliens live in complete hovels (for generations illegally) selling drugs and pushing human trafficking, abusing and even killing their kids and animals, living like the third world nation they came from throughout San Antonio’s West side but knock down this little old lady’s house? This widow having the city evict her is becoming more common and having cities implement rules for some things and not others is the name of the game as international codes are the wave of our crap future.

How Many People Did Joseph Stalin Kill?

Joseph Stalin, who died 60 years ago in Moscow, was a small man — no more than 5-foot-4. The abused son of a poor, alcoholic Georgian cobbler, Josef Vissarionovich Djughashvili (the future Stalin) also had a withered arm, a clubbed foot and a face scarred by small pox, but he stood very tall as one of history’s most prolific killers. Stalin’s extremely brutal 30-year rule as absolute ruler of the Soviet Union featured so many atrocities, including purges, expulsions, forced displacements, imprisonment in labor camps, manufactured famines, torture and good old-fashioned acts of mass murder and massacres (not to mention World War II) that the complete toll of bloodshed will likely never be known.

An amoral psychopath and paranoid with a gangster’s mentality, Stalin eliminated anyone and everyone who was a threat to his power – including (and especially) former allies. He had absolutely no regard for the sanctity of human life.

But how many people is he responsible for killing?

In February 1989, two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, a research paper by Georgian historian Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev published in the weekly tabloid Argumenti i Fakti estimated that the death toll directly attributable to Stalin’s rule amounted to some 20 million lives (on top of the estimated 20 million Soviet troops and civilians who perished in the Second World War), for a total tally of 40 million.

”It’s important that they published it, although the numbers themselves are horrible,” Medvedev told the New York Times at the time.

”Those numbers include my father.”

Medevedev’s grim bookkeeping included the following tragic episodes: 1 million imprisoned or exiled between 1927 to 1929; 9 to 11 million peasants forced off their lands and another 2  to 3 million peasants arrested or exiled in the mass collectivization program; 6 to 7 million killed by an artificial famine in 1932-1934; 1 million exiled from Moscow and Leningrad in 1935; 1 million executed during the ”Great Terror” of 1937-1938; 4 to 6 million dispatched to forced labor camps; 10 to 12 million people forcibly relocated during World War II; and at least 1 million arrested for various “political crimes” from 1946 to 1953.

Although not everyone who was swept up in the aforementioned events died from unnatural causes, Medvedev’s 20 million non-combatant deaths estimate is likely a conservative guess.

Indeed, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the literary giant who wrote harrowingly about the Soviet gulag system, claimed the true number of Stalin’s victims might have been as high as 60 million.

Most other estimates from reputed scholars and historians tend to range from between 20 and 60 million.

In his book, “Unnatural Deaths in the U.S.S.R.: 1928-1954,” I.G. Dyadkin estimated that the USSR suffered 56 to 62 million “unnatural deaths” during that period, with 34 to 49 million directly linked to Stalin.

In “Europe A History,” British historian Norman Davies counted 50 million killed between 1924-53, excluding wartime casualties.

Alexander Nikolaevich Yakovlev, a Soviet politician and historian, estimated 35 million deaths. Even some who have put out estimates based on research admit their calculations may be inadequate.

In his acclaimed book “The Great Terror: Stalin’s Purge of the Thirties,” Anglo-American historian Robert Conquest said: “We get a figure of 20 million dead [under Stalin], which is almost certainly too low and might require an increase of 50 percent or so.”

Quotes attributed to Stalin reflected his utter disregard for human life. Among other bons mots, he allegedly declared: “Death is the solution to all problems. No man — no problem,” and “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.” Part of the problem with counting the total loss of life lies with the incompleteness and unreliability of Soviet records. A more troubling dilemma has to do with the fact that many some deaths – like starvation from famines – may or may not have been directly connected to Stalin’s policies.

In any case, if the figure of 60 million dead is accurate that would mean that an average of 2 million were killed during each year of Stalin’s horrific reign – or 40,000 every week (even during “peacetime”).

If the lower estimate of 20 million is the true number, that still translates into 1,830 deaths every single day.

Thus, Stalin’s regime represented a machinery of killing that history – excluding, perhaps, China under Chairman Mao Tse-Tung — has never witnessed.
