British bans Doctors from performing surgery if patient smokes

Regardless how one comes down on the “strategy” of the GOP in stopping the forced death march of our healthcare the Government plans for us, Great Britain’s NHS gives us a glimpse into our future as to why we must stop it.  Once some bureaucrat decides who and what treatment are permitted, death panels are just around the corner. The Progressive’s view of an individual’s value ceases when one becomes non-productive. Those born who have little chance of being a benefit to society will have little chance for the support of life. As the amount of funds available for healthcare dwindle, the old and the young will be the first to go.

From Great Britain we get this:

Patients are being denied minor treatments because they smoke, The Mail on Sunday has found.

In one case a healthy middle-aged man was told he could not have a ten-minute operation to cut a small benign growth off the side of his  head, because of his habit.

Paul Merrett thought it would be no problem to get the inch-long fatty lump, called a lipoma, removed.

But when he attended King George Surgery in Stevenage, his GP said  he could not have the minor operation – which doctors often do under local anaesthetic in their own consulting rooms.

Mr Merrett, 46, said: ‘I was told, in no uncertain terms, that unless I gave up smoking or signed up to a quitting clinic they would refuse to treat me.  I was gobsmacked.’

He claims the doctor told him: ‘These directions are not mine. It’s not me refusing this treatment,  it’s the NHS trust.

An increasing number of local health authorities are refusing smokers hip and knee replacements, unless they go on courses to quit smoking.

And obese people are also being  told they must lose weight before costly joint replacement surgery, to increase the chances of success.

In some areas, such as Devon and Cornwall, smokers can no longer get IVF on the NHS unless they stop.

But this is the first time it has emerged that smokers are being turned down for minor treatments, where there is less evidence that smoking affects the outcome.

This is a recording of Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, speaking at the University of California, Berkley on September 26th, 2007

Bottom line: The insiders know that the young will get screwed by Obamacare, that life expectancy will go down under Obamacare and that medical innovation will suffocate. Why are the college students laughing?


Here Obama says maybe its better to take a pain pill.

Jane asks the President if her 100 year old mother (now 105) would have gotten a pacemaker under his plan. Well now that’s a tough one … that costs a lot and maybe we will have to say, just take a pill. Priceless.

Paint makers fight a $2.5B ruling over lead hazard

I was going to try entitle a post today, “Silly Sunday.” The intention was for a post that was beyond the pale of reason with a sprinkle of humor thrown in. Weekends can be tough for bloggers. Hard to get the energy up and be at the ready. This is definitely qualifies as beyond the pale. But the significance could be enormous. Think about it. There has been no lead paint in homes since 1978. Yet this could set a precedent that would ensure the bankruptcy of many major companies.  $2.5 Billion for California alone. And if required across the United States? Kiss these companies good-bye. It never ends.

Paint makers try to avoid $2.5B ruling over lead hazard

  • Lawyers for house-paint providers are due to make their final arguments today in a trial over whether the companies should have to remove lead paint from hundreds of thousands of homes in California, a requirement that could cost the firms up to $2.5B.
  • The defendants are Sherwin-Williams (SHW) NL Industries (NL), ConAgra (CAG), DuPont (DD) and BP (BP) unit Atlantic-Richfield.
  • The case has been brought by 10 city and county governments in California, which argue that the lead is harmful to children. Lead has been banned in residential paint since 1978. Seeking Alpha

Congress: “Beware of the wrath of the Saxons’!

I picked this poem up over at The Freedom Fighter’s Journal.  A Saturday respite from a very difficult week for American Patriots.

In the UK and the USA the old parties seem irrelevant – vehicles for career politicians who don’t care which team they drive for as long as it is the winning one. And out here, beyond the Thunderdome, we’re beginning to see that whoever else wins, we lose. We don’t much like it. But we are slow to anger – and yet our rulers should heed Kipling’s words, put into the mouth of a Norman noble on his death bed, talking to his son:

“The Saxon is not like us Normans. His manners are not so polite.
But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow – with his sullen set eyes on your own,
And grumbles, ‘This isn’t fair dealing,’ my son, leave the Saxon alone.

Our rulers should beware the phenomenon described in ‘The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon”

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON

by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

DHS Muslim Adviser: ‘Egyptian Coptics attacked by Muslim Brotherhood deserved it’

So Obama’s Dalia Moghaed blames the Coptic Christians for being slaughtered and over 80 churches burned?

DHS Muslim Adviser: Egyptian Christians Attacked By The Muslim Brotherhood Had It Coming To Them… Before we get to that:

And just who is she? Egyptian born and “veiled”, she conducted her first interview with notorious Jew-hater and America-hater Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi’s extremist Islamic website, Islam Online when appointed by Obama. From the post: 

Cair plans to plant Muslim interns on key hill staffs  October, 2009

During this week’s broadcast, she described her White House role as “to convey… to the President and other public officials what it is Muslims want.”

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.

The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world. Ed: Right, this group believes in non-violence like the rest of them

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.

They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold position of leadership in government”.

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that “promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.

Via IPT:

Dalia Moghaed, credited with helping President Obama draft his June 2009 Cairo speech about American relations with the Islamic world, recently downplayed attacks against Egypt’s Coptic Christians on a Facebook page.

More than 80 Coptic churches were burned by Brotherhood supporters after the Egyptian military’s crackdown last month on Muslim Brotherhood encampments in Cairo. A local branch of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party appeared to sanction violence in retaliation for the Coptic Church’s backing of the Egyptian military.

Nonetheless, Mogahed pointed the finger at the Egyptian media.

“The Egyptian media took advantage of the Copts to achieve many personal/political gains, which has angered the West,” Mogahed said in a Sept. 22 post which appeared on the Facebook page of the Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR).

The EADHR was founded by members of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which in turn was founded as an “overt arm” of the Egyptian Brotherhood.

Mogahed isn’t the only American Islamist tied to the Obama administration to slam the Copts on social media.

In a Sept. 15 Twitter post, Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, accused American Coptic activists of fanning hatred of Islam.

“For decade since 9/11 attack extremist American #Coptic activists have nurtured anti #Islam & anti #Muslim sentiments among AM RT wing,” Elibiary wrote.

In earlier tweets, Elibiary attacked American Copts for protesting against how their relatives in Egypt have been treated by the Islamists.

“Good read by @mwhanna1 on need to reform #Coptic activism in #US including stop promoting #Islamophobia,” Elibiary wrote Sept. 14.

“I think the Obama administration should be ashamed to have had someone like this in their administration,” said Michael Meunier, president of Egypt’s Al-Haya Party and a Coptic activist. “This underscores the thinking inside the Obama administration.”

FEMA, DHS planning for what if anything on October 1?

Chalk this down to my conspiracy theory Thursday post. I have been picking up various parts of this for the past several months, and I can confirm the purchases by the government from the government website. Most of the various pieces of the story have been reported from reliable sources elsewhere. Some sources have postulated that the Japanese reactor is deteriorating to a dangerous point and work will begin on October 1 with potentially dangerous consequences. Doubt that one. Not so long ago, I would not have even considered doing a post like this. Now? Times have changed. The Purchase Orders were marked urgent for purchase within 30 days.

Do I believe the “bread crumbs” trail goes where it is suggested? No. But do I think it is a worthy effort to inform others that many of what is reported is going down? Yes. So take this for what it is, and come to your own conclusions. Keep the tin foil at the ready.

Here we go:

Following the bread crumb trail of FEMA orders, retired State Senator Sheldon R. Songstad of South Dakota issued an “Emergency Fema Region 3 Alert!!!,” on August 13th.

Region three is composed of; Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Songstad’s research turned up some very interesting facts. Each item on its own could go unnoticed, but the collective facts may be worthy of your attention and scrutiny. The U.S. government appears to be preparing for a major event. It appears that this event is being staged for approximately Oct. 1st. Let’s look at the numbers and dates.

Acorn Replanted – Former Leader, Bertha Lewis Back In The Game

Here is the headline:

Dem NYC Mayoral Candidate Thanks Ex-ACORN Chief Bertha Lewis’ New Group For Helping Him Win Primary, Lewis Rants, “We’re Baacccck, The Right Wing Will Have To Deal With It”…

de Blasio, will turn New York City into a Marxist state. Good luck New York. He is otherwise known as, drum roll please :

The candidate’s official biography is that Bill de Blasio is his third legal  name.

The man who could become the city’s 109th mayor was born Warren Wilhelm Jr.  on May 8, 1961, in Manhattan, his birth certificate shows.

In 1983, fresh out of New York University, he petitioned a Manhattan judge  to formally change his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, according to legal  records.

And in December 2001 he petitioned a judge in Brooklyn to formally change  his name again, this time to Bill de Blasio.

Via NY Post:

ACORN’s former leader is back on top.

Bertha Lewis played critical behind-the-scenes roles in the victorious Democratic primary campaigns of both Bill de Blasio for mayor and Kenneth Thompson for Brooklyn district attorney, The Post has learned.

“We’re baacccck. The right wing will have to deal with it,” Lewis chuckled.

Lewis, a co-founder of the Working Families Party, was an early backer and adviser to de Blasio.

ACORN’s successor group, New York Communities for Change, endorsed de Blasio for mayor in early spring, and a Lewis protegé, NYCC field director Harold Miller, helped run de Blasio’s field operation.

So it was no surprise that Lewis stood behind de Blasio during his primary night victory speech last Tuesday.

Or that de Blasio tweeted, “Thanks to nychange members for coming out tonight!”

Lewis said she played an even larger role for Ken Thompson, who toppled longtime Brooklyn DA Charles “Joe” Hynes.

I picked up this video below from a Fox interview this morning. Bertha Lewis and her hateful rhetoric that is embraced by the next NYC Mayor. Kiss the city good-bye. The interview gives us a glimpse into the so-called “regionalism” that will be embraced. You know the drill. The suburbs kick into the city. We who live in the suburbs are kicked back into the cities to live. Good Luck NYC.

Scandal at Clinton Inc – a tattered curtain being raised?

While Hillary is setting up the stage for her 2016 run for the White House, a story regarding the Clinton Foundation,  and the Clinton’s Global Initiative (CGI) which is the high-profile political family’s other nonprofit, a scandal has been receiving scant attention. September 19, this story hit : Muslim Brotherhood official arrested, worked for Clinton Foundation

Turns out that is the least of the Clinton’s problems. And the story doesn’t come from the “vast right wing conspiracy” media sources. Doug Band is the fellow who gives us a glimpse into the machinations. A name for us to put on the radar. I had caught bits and pieces of the story previously, but hey, when it makes MSNBC and The New Republic writer Alec MacGillis does the drill, time to really pay attention. Keep in mind, it is estimated that Billions flow through the Foundation and the CGI. George Soros wannabes who may even eclipse his influence. For sure if she becomes the President.

No need to recite Bill and their pay to play. It has been well documented. My favorite? When he tried to sell our various port authorities to Dubai. Front Page Mag “The Clintons Double-Team the Dubai Ports Deal” has a great refresher on the two written in 2006.

First, the headline “Transactional’ Relationship”  has to be translated. Otherwise known as “Pay to Play”, or almost legal corruption.  The salient point?

MacGillis said the “increasing overlap” between Doug Band’s private sector endeavors and the “public good” that the Clinton foundation is supposedly focused on smacks of impropriety. (Ed. To say it kindly), who said the scale of former Clinton aide Doug Band’s profiteering off of his relationship with former President Bill Clinton “sets [him] apart” from other former public sector employees who leverage their connections in business Monday on MSNBC. This was a rough story for MSNBC!

To evidence his point, The New Republic writer relayed a story about how Doug Band was able to use his Clinton connections to attain an increased price from U.S. Postal Service for a building owned by his family:

Published on Sep 23, 2013

The New Republic writer Alec MacGinnis said the scale of former Clinton aide Doug Band’s favor trading and personal profit as a result of his relationship with the former president “sets it apart” from other former aide’s who cash in on the private sector

Obama and his Kenya politics – another war in the making

What with the new terrorist attack in Kenya, one has to reflect on the U.S. role in the region.

Looking back, why is Obama determined to unsettle just about every region in the world?  What are his motivations? He shares few internal concerns for the infiltration of terrorists into our country, but loves his drones. A puzzle isn’t it? For starters, from an earlier post:

Drones Away – more kinetic Actions – here, there, everywhere October 25, 2011

A Somali government official, who spoke on the condition of unanimity, told Press TV that there are secret US bases in Kenya mainly used for flying American pilot less drone bombers.

He also said that there are secret US jails in Kenya where hundreds of young people, captured in Somalia, are being held.

The US has increased the number of its attacks by unmanned surveillance aircraft in Somalia. Many civilians have died as a result.

Washington claims the airstrikes target militants, though most of such attacks have largely resulted in civilian casualties.

Somalia is the sixth country where the US military has engaged in unauthorized aerial bombing campaigns through the use of its remote-controlled aircraft. Press TV Ir

Now with Kenya back in the news with the new onslaught of violence, bet he will be in the situation room with this one. My “older readers” got their fill of my Kenya stories back a couple of years ago. Here is a bit of a refresher on our mixing into Kenya politics.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden urged Kenyans to embrace constitutional reform during a speech here last week. But prominent politicians and Kenya’s church leaders want the draft defeated because of allowances for abortion and Islamic courts that deal with family matters, issues opposed by conservative U.S. groups.(here)

Our earlier post: Obama supporting Cousin’s radical agenda in Kenya

Most Americans don’t realize that Barack Obama campaigned across Kenya while a US Senator to get his cousin Raila Odinga elected Prime Minister. Just last month he sent Biden over to Kenya to shill for this Terrorist. For more on this Obama supports Sharia Law and Constitutional change in Kenya  Snopes disputes the notion that they are cousins, but states, “even so, it would only be genetic”.

Odinga is a radical Muslim who’s pushing a new constitution on Kenya that requires all Muslims in the country to obey Sharia law. It also forbids any public displays of Christianity. Odinga cut a deal with radical Islamic groups to get it passed and Obama continues to support him behind the scenes with millions of tax payer dollars.

Odinga burned 50 Christians in a Church seeking refuge.

Get this: Odinga’s campaign slogan was “Vote For Change.”

Members of Congress are beginning to question the Obama administration’s full throated support for a radical Islamic constitution in Kenya. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is calling for an investigation and says the administration may be violating federal law.

This is really rich. Move the vid up to about 2:45 to hear how he tells Kenyans to have transparency when he was campaigning for Odinga. No need to watch the adoring fans prance about.

Michelle says Barack’s Home country is Kenya – full statement. Talking during the LGBT Delegate (The World as it Should Be), Michelle is talking about HIV testing. Her statement is that she and Barack Hussein Obama tested for HIV, when they took their trip to Kenya and visited his ‘HOME’ country

U.S. military plans method of taking over airwaves

For those of us who cringe at the monthly squeal of the test of the “Emergency Broadcast Alert” which is to alert us of any nastiness that is going down, apparently that is not enough. One has to ask why must the government commandeer all stations? But we have seen this plan before haven’t we? Not enough Obumer? Recall that we have been there, done that and it worked out fine.

The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Communications Commission held the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System. The test occurred at 2 p.m. ET and was carried on all broadcast television, radio stations and cable and satellite television systems in the U.S. and U.S. territories. Wednesday, November 9, 2011.

From Forbes:

If you want to take over a nation, then first take over its airwaves. Broadcast your messages and interdict the enemy’s ability to broadcast theirs. When the U.S. attacked Iraq in 1991, or NATO bombed Serbia in 1999, among the first targets destroyed were TV and radio stations. When there is a military coup in Africa, the first buildings the rebels usually grab are the radio and TV studios.

 Here is a question? Are we going to buy this bad boy from China?
 Prior to initiating the FCT, USSOCOM wishes to identify all firms (both foreign
and domestic) which could provide a non-developmental light-weight,
multi-frequency, simultaneous over-broadcast system that has demonstrated a Technology Readiness Level of 8 or higher.
So it is illuminating that the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), the organization that oversees America’s elite special forces, is quietly searching for equipment that will effectively give it control over every FM and AM radio station in an area. The short, innocuous-sounding announcement on the Federal Business Opportunities site states that SOCOM seeks vendors to provide “a radio broadcast system capable of searching for and acquiring every AM and FM radio station in a specific area and then broadcasting a message(s) in the target area on all acquired AM and FM radio station frequencies.” SOCOM wants equipment that is both lightweight and sophisticated enough to detect and broadcast over multiple frequencies simultaneously. And SOCOM wants it fast. The equipment must be at least Technology Readiness Level 8, a Pentagon measure of technological maturity that means that it is fully developed, tested and ready for use.

Obama? Are we to be your Lemmings?

May 6, 2012. The day Obama kicked off his campaign for his next term. His slogan?  Way Forward. Forward off the cliff is what it has been. Here is a Saturday re-do of my post video done then that is even more appropriate today. Forward like lemmings, off the cliff he would take us.

The ending? It is up to us.
