SOTU 2019 and American Medicine

by: Jane M. Orient, M.D.

While President Trump called for unity and cooperation in his 2019 State of the Union address, the views of the audience showed a sharp and bitter divide, especially on issues affecting the health and medical care of Americans. Most striking was the solid bloc of Democrat “suffragettes” clad in white like Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

When the President congratulated women for their increased representation in Congress, this bloc rose to its feet to applaud uproariously, as if the home team had scored the winning touchdown in the high-school championship game.

Otherwise, the women mostly sat sullenly with arms crossed, or even displayed overt and in-your-face derision. They sat, as did Speaker Pelosi, while Sen. Bernie Sanders scowled eloquently, during the standing ovation for the President’s promise that America would never become a socialist country. The President had just observed that Venezuela, once the richest country in South America, had become a pit of abject poverty and despair under socialist rule. No sign of compassion have Democratic Socialists shown for women rooting through trash seeking food for their children, and no trace of concern about the refugees fleeing into Colombia and other neighboring countries.

These congresswomen in white are blind to the White Ladies of Havana, Cuba, who march in silence every Sunday after church to protest the communist regime on behalf of their fathers, brothers, and sons who were jailed and tortured by the Castro brothers’ totalitarian regime for their anti-communist beliefs. A naturalized American citizen (a legal immigrant) who grew up in Communist Romania, Ileana Johnson, is dismayed that Americans have elected socialists to rule over our lives. Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez’s mentor, has praised Fidel Castro for educating and bringing healthcare to Cuban children, and “totally transforming” society. More

I tried watching the swearing in of the new House for the 112th Congress.  I couldn’t stand it.  Standing on the steps outside the House, was one of the greatest collections of career liars,thieves and thugs ever publicly assembled, sprinkled with a few new-comers who probably believe they are actually going to affect a change in the District of Criminals.  

By the end of January, these newbies will have been thoroughly indoctrinated and will have had the law laid down to them about how things really work in the District. The newbies will resurface along about February with their talking points memo’s in hand and will dutifully be spouting the party line and will have totally dismissed any notions they may have had about “changing” the way the District does business.     More

The argument is being put forward that it is not fair to exempt small farmers and ranchers from the corporate machine that would wipe them out.  I find it strange to hear the word “fair” applied to this obviously staged conversation.”  More

Ok!  We’ve gone from blue to red. What an event! Why! It is positively historic!  It’s a mandate! A landslide! A big steaming crock of BS the likes of which we will probably never see again….at least until 2012.   What is it all you sheeple out there think you changed?  Now we will effectively convert from a full headlong rush into socialism, to a full body tackle of corporate fascism. Yippee! Instead of dirty backroom deals perpetrated by the Democrats, we will now have even bigger dirtier deals perpetrated by the Republicans.  The K-Street parasites have a raft of new-found friends and bags of corporate money to pass around and the wholesale sell-off and sell-out of America and her people will go on as if nothing happened; and actually nothing did.  We just changed who gets to mug for the camera first; who gets to stare into the camera with all the fake honesty and sincerity they can muster and tell us another big fat lie.  I could just cry with joy…..wonder if Glenn Beck has any Vicks left over? 

This election has seen Sarah Palin morph from being former governor of Alaska, to “Christian Woman!”; able to leap across tall stacks of bibles as she pretends she knows what words with more than three letters mean!  Although she has no idea what is in the Constitution, she can say that great big word! TaDA!  She doesn’t know anything but she doesn’t have to.  She is really pretty and she is now “Christian woman!” and they pay her big bunches of money to show up at meetings and recite the big words someone told her to say.

Are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Joe Lieberman all as insane as they look and sound? 

In case you have not yet been alerted, the above gang of pretended public servants are either truly insane, or they are working for some source other than that from which they draw their constitutional power. 

But then again, the lawmakers in congress who heed Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence – that our government should rule “with the consent of the governed” – are so few as to nullify the good and wise intentions of our founding fathers. May God help us 

It is the democratic leadership (of Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Lieberman, Frank, and many others) that remains steadfast in its support of the draconian healthcare deformity, known as Obamacare, while recent polls show only 34 percent of those polled still supported the Healthcare “Reform” Act.

Requiring Americans and small businessmen to bear the cost of buying into the expensive, corporate health “care” plans of the Monetary Cartel’s mega-insurance giants, and into the ever-sliding quality of American medicine, all under the pain of huge fines and prison time, does not sit well with most informed Americans and could be the death knell for the American small business sector, and our middle class as well.  More

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s mouth issued the following during an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer.

Well, you know, some people will do anything for the insurance companies,”

Pelosi said of Boehner in an echo of the bitter fight over the health care bill.”

Apparently her brain did not engage or she might have remembered this strange little fact from OpenSecrets.org:

The largest Industry contribution to Madame Speakers campaign in the 2009 – 2010 cycle came from the “Health” sector with  “Finance, Insurance and Real Estate” arriving a not so distant second.

Why not just return the donations raised by the evil “Lobbyist” from United Health Care last fall as the moral thing to do with the Health Care Bill before her?

Just as Speaker Nancy Pelosi begins to back away from the public option, the insurance industry holds a fundraiser for her. See David Sirota’s column republished at http://www.prosperityagenda.us/node/1775. Steve Elmendorf, a registered lobbyist for United Health, sent invitations to a Pelosi fundraiser at his home for this Thursday. The asking price: $5,000 for PACs and $2,400 per individual – the legal maximum for each.

Wonder where the Public Option went? I suppose “some people” will, well you know, do anything for the insurance companies.
