Obamacare’s newest fans: Oink, oink

February 25, 2017

A recent news account in USA Today headlining, “Obamacare’s popularity at its highest level in nearly seven years” piqued our interest. We tracked down the survey and found it was conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF)  — hardly a passive player in the healthcare industry. Telephone interviews were conducted in English and Spanish.

This biased gem is directly from Kaiser:

With President Trump and top White House officials regularly criticizing the accuracy of news from major news organizations, this month’s poll also looks at which sources of information Americans trust most about changes to the nation’s health care system.

The survey finds Americans are more likely to say they trust their Congressional representatives (55%) their friends and family (51%), and local (53%) and national news organizations (51%) than President Trump (42%) or social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter (16%).

While fewer than half of Americans say they trust information about proposed changes to the U.S. health care system from President Trump “a lot” or “some,” one-fourth of Americans do say they trust information from the President “a lot” (23 percent) which may be an indication of the current divisive political environment.

Friday’s skewed report on their news site is titled, “Support for health law grows, leaving Republicans in a bind.”

Says who?

Obamacare was sold to Americans based on lies. This is Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber referring to Americans as too stupid to understand the facts (video) while they were being exploited by the healthcare law. Here U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy eviscerates MIT Professor Gruber as the liar he is at a congressional hearing. (video)

Based on the Kaiser survey indicating the rise in popularity of Obamacare, our readers will see the relevance of this tale which defines the issue of government dependency:

Years ago a wise farmer noticed that wild pigs roamed freely in the woods adjacent to his farm. “If I could just capture some of those wild pigs, I could fatten them up and reap financial rewards,” he told his neighbor. But the neighbor scoffed, “Those pigs are wild animals, clever in fending for themselves. You can never round them up.”

The wild pigs were suspicious of any advances by the farmer. However, the farmer was a very patient man, and knew the rewards would be great if he was able to gain their trust. The farmer set out with his plan to tame the beasts.

His plan evolved. Each day he took corn and tossed it in the woods where the pigs could safely feast under the cover of darkness. Gradually, as the pigs grew less cautious, the farmer scattered the corn in a pasture located nearer the farmhouse. Then he set about hammering in fence posts around one side of the pasture. That night, the pigs noticed the posts with some curiosity but were eager to dig into the big pile of corn the farmer had left them. A few nights later, they noticed more posts had been erected. At last, the farmer attached wire to the posts around the perimeter but the corn inside was so enticing and delicious that they gobbled it up as they had gotten used to doing, setting aside any apprehension they had about the fence.

Finally, the pigs noticed there was a fence around the entire pasture with a wide and welcoming gate, swung open and leading to where the sweet corn was piled high. Although a few pigs were suspicious and refused to enter the gate, the more greedy ones entered the enclosure. After several nights when no harm came to them, the others decided to join in the banquet and gorged to their delight, as pigs do. Then one night as the pigs were busy feeding, the farmer quietly walked up to the gate, closed and locked it.

So it is with reliance on government to meet our basic needs. The trap is set. We simply have to anticipate the gate swinging shut on us.

 


Obamacare or Affordable Health Care?

January 19, 2017

As we eagerly anticipate Friday’s inauguration of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President, we take a break to expose how difficult it can be for serious elected officials to connect with some American voters.  Except for the wasted stoner most of those interviewed here by Jimmy Kimmel Live were adamant about their health care allegiance, though they have no idea what they’re talking about.

This is the 2017 version of a 2013 “man-on-the-street” interview on the same topic.

For those who are paying attention, look over the Trump/Pence framework for repealing Obamacare and reforming America’s health care system.


Obama commutes tranny traitor’s sentence

January 18, 2017

Doles out plum appointments to friends

Just hours before his final exit from the White House, but still able to gleefully poke his finger in America’s eye, Barack Obama has been hard at work finding cushy government jobs for his political, tranny and sports pals — even Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law made the list. He’s also been commuting prison sentences. 

Obama has lopped off all but four months of the 35-year prison sentence of traitorous Bradley Manning the Army intelligence analyst convicted of a 2010 espionage leak that compromised national security as he revealed American military and global diplomatic activities.

In the interim, Bradley who has morphed into transgendered “Chelsea,” has weekly counseling sessions with a prison psychologist. After a 2014 lawsuit filed by Chase Strangio (who could make that up?) on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union, Bradley/Chelsea is now allowed female prison undergarments and cosmetics. American taxpayers are paying for speech therapy to feminize Manning’s vocal tone and pitch and Bradley/Chelsea is now receiving female hormone treatments intended to develop breasts and make hips curvier. “Being me is a full-time job,” according to Manning.

Still Manning, claiming life is bleak as a transgender woman in Fort Leavenworth, a men’s prison,  has experienced “uncertainty” over whether the Trump administration will deny requested sex-reassignment surgery. 

Fox News reports that in 2016 Obama lifted a ban on openly transgender military personnel and will include gender reassignment surgery at taxpayers expense. No wonder Obama has commuted this traitor’s sentence. President Donald Trump’s administration is likely to have kept Manning incarcerated, and roll back those pricey procedures when military readiness is a major concern and the VA hospital scandal which erupted here in Phoenix, remains unresolved.


Phx VA hospital scandal occurred under McCain’s nose

December 10, 2016

McCain’s abysmal record with veterans includes disgraced Phoenix VA Health Care system

U.S. Senate elections occur only once every six years — long enough intervals for the vast majority of voters to forget pertinent facts about candidates. This political disconnect works in the candidate’s behalf. As Jeff Flake noted, “The beauty of six-year senate terms is that voters have short memories.” With a ballot full of mostly unfamiliar names and intended to confuse ballot measures that urge yes votes when no would be the better option, and vice versa, it’s a difficult time for busy voters who want to stay engaged, but have scant information. That fact alone accounts for the barrage of mailers and media ads, many purposely intended to deceive.

This bit of background brings us to John McCain, routinely portrayed as the veteran’s best friend. During the Vietnam War, he was held as a POW, returning to the U.S. in 1973. But facts can be pesky things, though this Fact Check is from his 2008 failed presidential campaign, it remains relevant.

During his 2016 senate reelection, we were once again barraged with the octogenarian’s Friend of the Veteran refrain. But the stark headline — “Phoenix VA earns worst ranking” — in Thursday’s edition of the Arizona Republic newspaper tells a different story. McCain is unnamed but undeniably integral to the report. The massive levels of neglect and fraud as patient records were altered to hide their excessive wait times for medical care occurred on McCain’s watch in his own hometown.

The scandal-plagued Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center is about 4 miles from McCain’s 7,000 sq. ft. penthouse condo. For a blowhard like John McCain, that’s spitting distance from his balcony. The newspaper account of the Phoenix VA Health Care System details the abuses. As a reminder, news first broke about the miserable conditions resulting in over 200 veterans dying due to extreme wait times for medical appointments over two years ago. Lab results were “lost.” The facility misrepresented results from patient satisfaction surveys and continued to give incentive bonuses to colluding employees. The truth is the Phoenix VA Health Care system is rated lowest in the nation.

This shocking Oct. 4, 2016 VA Inspector General’s Office Review on Alleged Consult Mismanagement at the Phoenix VA Health Care System found that 215 deceased patients had open specialist consultation appointments at the Phoenix facility on the day they died.

The self-proclaimed veteran’s pal, John McCain has never ventured onto the hospital complex demanding answers from administrators. 


Final 2016 presidential debate tonight 6 PM AZ Time

October 19, 2016

Date and Time: Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016  9pm ET (8pm CT, 7pm MT, 6pm PT)

Moderator: Chris Wallace, Anchor, Fox News Sunday

Watch: The debate will be broadcast live on all major networks and live streamed on YouTube.
You can only miss it if you want to.

Location: University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The format will be similar to the first debate where both candidates will be firmly planted behind their podiums. Hillary Clinton’s senior staff has requested this arrangement to assist her in maintaining her balance as her serious health issues become more apparent. She previously received a custom-made podium to make her appear taller. It’s all about protecting, positioning and promoting Hillary, after all.

On Tuesday, Trump correctly stated the hard fact, “Either we win this election, or we lose the country.”


Power through: Hillary’s apologists sing fight song in unison

September 14, 2016

Leftwing newscasters get identical infusions of pro-Hillary talking points

Step right up, folks!  The sideshow is about to begin!  Grab yer honey! Git yer popcorn! Watch the ‘Grand Collusion’ as fearful media liberals see their favored candidate lose power, engulfed in scandals, scapegoat friends, insult American voters, stumble, collapse, sweat, nosedive in the polls and cancel fundraisers!

Before your very eyes, you will see Hillary Clintonpower through even as she battles what she calls pneumonia — and what appears to be a serious neurological disease  — now forced to apologize for the insults she hurled at millions of American voters who support her opponent by calling them abasket of deplorables.”

This is a must see.  Watch the blood drain from the faces of the falsely jovial media elites as they confront the very real possibility of losing the White House to Republican Donald Trump, a reality which looms larger with each passing day.

Americans must demand Hillary release her health records

September 12, 2016

Hillary’s renown lack of trustworthiness now bolstered by health deceit, suppression of information

Concerns are mounting regarding Hillary Clinton’s serious health issues. Based on what she repeatedly told the FBI regarding her lack of memory after suffering a concussion and blood clot on her brain, followed by wild coughing jags, uncontrollable head bobs and wide-eyed momentary blackouts during speeches, it’s increasingly evident something is very wrong with the Democrat nominee.

Following her bizarre early departure from Sunday’s 9/11 commemoration ceremony the question as to whether she is either physically or mentally fit to be president of the United States looms large.  Hillary claimed she was “overheated” preceding her stumbling into her van.  Her doctor, not wanting to be part of the ongoing deception, later revealed Hillary was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.. The serious condition, especially in those over 65, requiring antibiotics and bed rest has led to the cancellation of a scheduled fundraising trip to California today and Tuesday.

A newly released poll by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, titled “Concerns about candidate health,” asks six questions of 250 respondents. By a wide margin of 78.57 percent the physicians thought the media coverage was not thorough enough.

Nearly 71 percent regard the concerns serious enough to be disqualifying for the position of President of the United States. Almost 73 percent of the physicians admitted the type of health conditions they were aware of would influence their vote.

Dr. Ted Noel, a medical doctor with 36 years of experience, states he has not treated Hillary Clinton, but makes a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis based on observations of her visible signs: coughing fits, tremors, brain freezes, slow, shuffling movements, Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (impairment of voluntary movements), head bobbing, PD postures, rigidity, impaired balance, loss of automatic movements, speech changes, “off states” where normal function is suspended.

Dr. Noel says she’s only able to get tuned up for partial duty, which relates to her lack of press conferences for 278 days, more than 7 months — until one Thursday, on an airport tarmac with a fawning gaggle of reporters, tossing her softballs.

This video courtesy of The Next News Network features an interview with Dr. Noel. 

Scott McKay writing for American Spectator titles his ‘Hillary Watch’ piece, She’s (Very) SickHe also reveals the facts behind the cancellation of “Dr. Drew On Call” on HLN, following  Dr. Drew Pinsky stating  he was “gravely concerned about not just her health but her health care.” This rapid move to remove Pinsky is clear evidence of shutting down any voices that question the rationality of Hillary’s continued campaign.

Hillary Clinton is not known for her honesty. And her team, whose political futures depend on her election, have become adept at cover-ups.  Now that the concerns have become alarm bells and with the election less than two months away, Americans deserve unvarnished truth. It’s time for Hillary Clinton to disclose her complete, unredacted health record.  We deserve nothing less.
