'Death panel' is not in the bill... it already exists

   Daschle says health-care reform "will not be pain free." Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them.    H.R. 1 (more commonly known as the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, even more commonly known as the Stimulus Bill and aptly dubbed the Porkulus Bill) contains a whopping $1.1 billion to fund the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research. The Council is the brain child of former Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Tom Daschle. Before the Porkulus Bill passed, Betsy McCaughey, former Lieutenant governor of New York, wrote in detail about the Council's purpose.

Liberals Threaten Whole Foods Boycott Over CEO's Healthcare Stance (WFMI)
08/16/2009  •  The Business Insider 
Comment mine..Liberals are the biggest hypocrites and FASCISTS around. Remember when Shrill Hill said dissent was patriotic? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJxmpTMGhU0 It's a curious phenomenon. Every once in a while, maybe every six months or so, some event in the media reminds Whole Foods (WFMI) shoppers that the company's (in)famous CEO John Mackey most likely doesn't share their political beliefs. Mackey is an anti-union libertarian. Most of his shoppers aren't. And so it is that his recent op-ed slamming Obamacare has got some predictable blowback from customers, who, generally speaking, are sympathetic to the President and schemes that move us closer to universal care.  Read Full Story

Meet the FCC Diversity Czar
Ernest Hancock
  

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced a new “Chief Diversity Officer,” communications attorney Mark Lloyd.

But Doctor of Jurisprudence Lloyd is far more than merely a communications attorney. He was at one time a Senior Fellow at the uber-liberal Center for American Progress (CAP), for whom he co-wrote a June 2007 report entitled “The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.”

Which rails against the fact that the American people overwhelmingly prefer to listen to conservative (and Christian) talk radio rather than the liberal alternative, and suggests ways the federal government can remedy this free-market created “problem.”

* Restore local and national caps on the ownership of commercial radio stations.
* Ensure greater local accountability over radio licensing.
* Require commercial owners who fail to abide by enforceable public interest obligations to pay a fee to support public broadcasting.

Treasury, FDIC And More: How Many Lies?
08/15/2009  •  The Market Ticker 
Crossed out by hand. The final presentation of this to The American People was missing this key disclosure. The FDIC has repeatedly stressed that "nobody has ever lost a penny of insured deposits", to wit: Finally, Mr. Evans' suggestion that the "government" could ever be "on the hook for uninsured deposits" demonstrates a misunderstanding of FDIC insurance. To protect taxpayers, we are required to follow the "least cost" resolution, which means that uninsured depositors are paid in full only if this is the least costly option for the FDIC. This usually occurs when a bidder for the failed bank is willing to pay a higher price for the entire deposit franchise. We are authorized to deviate from the "least cost" resolution only where a so-called "systemic risk" exception is made. This is an extraordinary procedure which we have never invoked. And again, any money we borrow from the Treasury Department must be repaid through  Read Full Story

08-16-2009  Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America -

A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

One must always be mindful of inaccuracy or misinformation when reading articles. Take for example this piece from the Market Oracle also on Dandelion Salad by Andrew Gavin Marshall titled Forging "A New World Order"Under a One World Government. It is a good piece but facts are facts and the fact is it was clinton who put NAFTA- SHAFTA to Americans in place. I have no qualms with Free Trade that is Fair but as we all now know that was not the case. Americans were given the Shaft by ahaha the party of the working people.

In the last few weeks we have seen a huge push-back on the part of seniors against Obamacare. They have turned out in droves to town hall meetings and other gatherings to ask questions or to simply object to the plan, as is their wont. We have seen push-back against the elderly on the part of Democrats, who claimed that the very people who fought the Nazis were carrying swastikas, or were only attending these gatherings in order to get on YouTube. We have even watched as representatives of special interest groups funded by seniors walk out of the very meetings which they staged, ostensibly for the benefit of those very seniors....  Read Full Story

The Swine Flu is an orchestrated attempt to spread fear and chaos into fear and chaos into the population and to try to get people vaccinated, which everyone should know contains mercury that damages your nervous system. Mercury, of course, is one of the most toxic substances you can put in a human body. It is a heavy metal known to contribute to neurological disorders, including autism, dementia, and even Alzheimer's disease. Mercury also tends to build up in tissues in the human body and is not easily removed, so even small exposures to mercury can accumulate over time and end up compromising the health of the person involved. Baxter, the makers of the flu vaccines was caught putting live bird flu in the vaccines and making people get more sick and ill with the help of the World Health Organization. Video:  Read Full Story

" Justice John McLean, Dred Scott v. Sandford, 1857 Is a federal government takeover of the health care system constitutional? Some argue that under the Constitution, Congress is not authorized to regulate or subsidize health care.

   Every time I accompany my mom to the doctors office, I notice a curiously popular sentiment among the drivers on the road. Almost every single car, usually pick-up trucks, carries the ever-so popular bumper sticker: “Out of the job yet? Keep buying foreign!” Much like all the “Buy American” signs, and “Support Your Country” mantra, this has actually become a well received idea.

     America and its freedom is about to be destroyed.. We are now faced with the loss of our sovereignty, and lose what little freedom we have left. And now I read that there is a new bill to prevent political dissents from owning guns, the bill is HR 2159. This bill is being pushed by the GOP rep Peter King of New York and has the support of a number of other members of the GOP. Peter King is also being supported by 9/11 Families For a Secure America. 911 Families For a Secure America also is in support of other programs aimed at destroying our Liberties.Programs that were designed by the DHS such as the E-Verify and The Real Id Act both which promise security at the expense of liberty, we were warned about giving up our liberties for the promise of security 243 years ago.

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust. 

The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Jacko --- complete with disfigured nose.   Unfortunately the bust, which was carved sometime between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C., is of a woman and MJ likely never had the chance to see the statuette.

That AIG is a giant sink-hole for taxpayer dollars is no secret now. But that's not what Washington communicated last year, maintaining that the bailout of AIG was an investment that would be paid back. New documents show, however, that Washington never really believed what it was saying, and that the "this is an investment" rhetoric was just to make the gigantic bailout more palatable. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch just dug up some juicy Treasury documents on Washington's bailout of AIG.  Read Full Story

The Countrywide Senators How do you define 'substantial credible evidence'?
08/15/2009  •  WSJ 
Late last week the six Senators on the ethics panel dismissed complaints against Senators Kent Conrad and Chris Dodd with a mere admonishment about the appearance of impropriety. The three Republican and three Democratic Senators say they conducted an exhaustive probe and inspected 18,000 pages of documents. They say they found "no substantial credible evidence as required by Committee rules" that the Senators received mortgage rates or services that weren't commonly available to the public, and thus did not violate the Senate gift ban. We'll have to take their word that the evidence wasn't "substantial," because they didn't release those documents, nor did they encourage Mr. Dodd to release any of his records. Readers will recall that in February Mr. Dodd staged a peek-a-boo release with selected reporters but did not allow anyone to have copies of the documents. If the evidence was so clear-cut, why the months of stonewalling? The Associated Pre  Read Full Story
