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

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.

When did the House start “deeming” instead of voting?

Leave a comment

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h

Later this week, the House leadership intends to . . .

* pass the Senate 2,700 page healthcare reform bill, clearing it for President Obama’s signature
* but pretend that they didn’t

It’s a mind-boggling process suggested by Rule Committee Chair Rep. Louise Slaughter. To summarize . . .

* before Congress can pass a reconciliation bill “fixing” the Senate’s bill, the House must first pass the Senate bill and the President must sign it into law
* but the House doesn’t want an up-or-down vote on the unpopular Senate bill
* so instead the House will tie the Senate bill and the reconciliation bill together in a Rules Committee resolution
* which says that if the reconciliation bill passes, then the original Senate bill will be “DEEMED” to have been passed
* the Senate bill can then be signed into law, after which the Senate will (supposedly) proceed to consider the reconciliation bill

How can they do this? Because the House Rules Committee can propose anything that it pleases. More

Congress Has Betrayed Us Yet AGAIN!!

Hundreds of billions more in the last 2 years for a senseless military occupation, the FISA outrage, paralysis on impeachment or even enforcing subpoenas, and now a total surrender of the future of our treasury in an 850 billion dollar bailout of Wall Street fat cats. Congress has done worse than do nothing, they have done categorically the WRONG thing, and the whole rest of the world knows it, and THAT is why the stock market has been dropping like a rock ever since the Senate stampeded through this bailout monstrosity.

What Are We Going To Do About It?!

And as if all this weren’t galling enough. How do you like how Bush came out in the Rose Garden after signing the “Fox In Charge Of The Hen House Bill” to basically say, “Thanks, chumps.”?

How dare they call themselves “Representatives”? How dare they! With their phones flooded a hundred to one shouting down this massive theft from the American taxpayer, with such an avalanche of emails coming the House email servers almost crashed, how dare they?! And guess what, the people were right. The hundreds of top economists pleading for sanity and a hearing were right.

Pelosi, the queen of the cave-ins must be defeated. There can be no honor in allowing her to remain in office. Shame on us if we don’t do everything we could have done to remove her. Then and only then can all the other things that need to be done to fix this disaster be implemented.

Pelosi & Reid Need to Step Down

Leave a comment

I don’t know which of these two I have come to despise more; Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi.  For me, these two are no different than any other neo-con and I have no use for any one of them and none for what now masquerades as the Democrat faction of our government. 

 

Senate Leader Harry Reid is preparing to schedule a couple of weeks of immigration reform hearings, again trying to establish amnesty for illegal immigrants.  The hook on this new intended reform is border reinforcement (bull!) and implementing tight employee verification requirements for employers unless of course they are big corporations that finance both the Democrats and Republicans…..meaning there will be no tightening and no border reinforcement.    

 

Maybe Senator Reid didn’t get the message last year when American’s rebelled en-mass against several attempts to pass amnesty to people that broke our laws, and who drained the federal treasury (our tax dollars at work) of more than $240 billion as several states faced massive deficits from the overload on social benefits including education and healthcare.  This while these same people sent $45 billion back to Mexico alone in “remittances”. 

 

Speaker Pelosi it is claimed is coming out with her version of the new amnesty plan early this summer.  Apparently Pelosi and Reid both have a hearing or comprehension problem, if not both.   It is obvious neither understands that the majority of legal American citizens will not support amnesty in any form regardless of how they package it.  No doubt, amnesty will be attached to some non-related emergency bill and rammed down our throats. 

 

Reid and Pelosi need to go.  Along with them the Attorney General, one in a long line of AG’s that has refused to perform his duty as require in the US Code.


Title 8 U.S.C. 1103 (a)(5) states: “The Attorney General shall have the power and the duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of States against the illegal entry of aliens.”

 

This one section alone should be enough to have Mukasey removed from office for dereliction of duty.  And by the way…..where’s that fence?  If not the fence, at least call the Canadian Military down here to patrol that border for us.  After all, Reid and Pelosi along with everyone else in our representative congress never said a word about this anti-American agreement called the Civil Assistance Plan that allows foreign military’s to be used on our soil….. against us.  The least they could do is have them secure that border and stop the flow of mass illegal immigration before they turn them on us.

 

Contrary to what we hear daily, our immigration system is NOT broken……it simply isn’t enforced.  We have a very liberal immigration policy, admitting an estimated 2 million new immigrants each year.  This in addition to all the work, education and shopping visas.  Yes, Virginia!  You can get a shopping visa to enter the US from Mexico.  Go figure! And here I thought these people were so poor!  How could they come here to shop if they are? With what? 

 

I also find it hard to believe that these illegal entrants into our country cannot make a decent living in Mexico, where wages are less, but so is the cost of living.  Yet they can somehow raise $1500 (American) or more per person to get smuggled into the country.  Where did that money come from if they are so destitute? 

 

I also realize that it sounds much nicer to call these people “undocumented workers” rather than illegal immigrants.  They are illegal immigrants who are working illegally in this country; employed by unscrupulous employers and sanctioned by our own government that in turn refuses to enforce our laws.  And leading this assault against the will of the American public is Pelosi and Reid who insist on trying yet again to push another amnesty bill through while more jobs are lost here, while 2 million will lose their homes to foreclosure, and many become homeless as a result. 

 

The Pew Hispanic Center estimated in 2006 that there were about 20 million illegal immigrants in this country, and, that of those 20 million, 7 million were employed and only 12% of that 7 million were working in agriculture.   The immediate question arises:  How were the other 13 million surviving? 

 

I find it either amazing or equally appalling that this congress like those before it can seem to do nothing that isn’t harmful to American’s at large.  Laws are passed regularly that strip us of our rights, put us under unnecessary surveillance and invade every aspect of our lives.  Our Constitution has been totally trashed while we are threatened daily with “terrorists” and too many of us now live in fear of our own militarized government. 

 

Based on all the laws that have infringed on our rights, all the laws that are now in progress to be passed, it would appear that you and I no longer have the right to dissent, to be left alone by the government, to attend rally’s, to try and affect any social, religious or political change (now called acts of domestic terrorism) or to be represented in our government.  We could be jailed, held indefinitely without charges, never charged, unable to mount a defense, unable to know what we are charged with and can even be stripped of our citizenship.  All of this on being deemed a “domestic terrorist” by virtue of having exercised your constitutional rights.

 

But!  If you jump the border, enter the country illegally, steal someone else’s identity, social security number or even credit card numbers…….work illegally, illegally access social benefits, and demand to be taken care of and claim you have some kind of rights to all of this….we’ll give you amnesty!  We won’t even charge you for breaking our laws!  For some reason you won’t be deemed a domestic terrorist and you most likely will never see the inside of a jail much less any charges against you.  Heck! Even if we catch you we’ll just tell you to show up at a later date in court (which you won’t) and then forget all about you.  It would seem that being an illegal immigrant into this country will allow you far more latitude and legal rights than being a legal citizen.

 

In the end, if Pelosi and Reid think the majority of us out here are going to sit still for yet another attempt at passing the same old amnesty BS, they need to think again.  We are more determined than ever to see that it doesn’t.

Speaker Pelosi Should Be Impeached

Leave a comment

We should have worked to have her removed from her office when she declared “impeachment is off the table” immediately after assuming the position of Speaker of the House.  This statement was made with the full knowledge that the newly acquired position she occupied was a direct result of the will of the voters to replace the corruption of not only the Republican majority, but also the administration and to impeach Bush and Cheney.  Princess Pelosi made her loyalties very clear, and they are not to the American people.

To add insult to injury, even after millions of American’s repeatedly stood up and demanded that there be no amnesty and that our laws be enforced, effectively preventing the passage of such odorous pieces of legislation such as the Dream Act ….which was a bitch slap to legal citizens….. not once, not twice, but three times at least, the Princess is continuing to work behind the scenes to produce yet another amnesty bill which she will try to ram through congress, due to come out early this summer.  Maybe she’s hard of hearing?  Maybe she can’t comprehend?  Maybe she really does think that what the American people want is not an issue she has to be bothered with. 

Now, Her Royal Hiney is working on a 178 billion dollar package to continue to fund the war in Iraq.  Where, one might ask, does the Princess think she is going to find another $178 billion?  We’ve already borrowed so much from China that they actually own us, and Japan is running a close second.  Revenues are way down from taxes as so many have lost their jobs, their homes, and their quality of life. 

The federal government contiinues to raid the Social Security surplus to pay its operating expenses and to cover the loss of revenues from the tax cuts to the wealthiest people, and the cost of illegal immigrants to the federal government jumped up to 240 billion for 2007.  These two issues alone have bankrupted our country, and this does not include the state by state costs, deficits and resulting debts accrued.  Now add the cost of this illegal war to all of these things.  We are in effect…….not only bankrupt but totally insolvent as a nation.  We can’t even pay the service debt on all the money we have borrowed. But the Princess wants to create another 178 billion dollar debt (this doesn’t include interest, fees, penalties, or other hidden costs) to continue to fund an unwinnable war that the American people have made very clear they want stopped.

I have a plan:

Until congress, the administration and its cohorts in crime work for the American people rather than against them, I believe all of their assets both liquid and invested, including homes, businesses, savings, assets from any source whatsoever, including all the personal funds that they are stashing away in foreign currencies and investments, should be seized and used to pay back these monstrous debts that they have created and claimed that we, the American citizen are responsible for.  Maybe if they have to pay the bill for the money they have spent against our wishes, they might stop squandering it. 

I think we should start with Princess Pelosi.  First, she needs to be dethroned.  Then, all of her ill gotten gains seized and applied to the debt she has helped to create.  Once she is homeless, without any resources, with no political power, she may have an epiphany. 

Ultimately, Pelosi is only one piece of the problem.  Maybe its time we citizens think over the idea that congress is no longer representative of the people.  Maybe its time we end congress.  Having ceded so much of its power and authority to the executive branch, congress has ceased to be a needed branch of government.  God knows congress doesn’t work for the people, opting instead to protect the corporatization of our government and country and actively working to protect those interests rather than those of the people who elected them.  Think of the money that could be saved by ridding our selves of this monumental siphon on the public treasury. 

Think of it as good business practices.  No other corporation would tolerate the inactivity, the bad business decisions, the poor financial practices, or the ignoring of those invested in the corporation.  Our government is in effect, a corporation and if this is how they want to operate, then as investers in that corporation we have a right to call a meeting and demand an accounting,  and a voice in structure and board members. 

Maybe if we start by removing Pelosi from the board of directors which is commonly called “congress”, other board members will get the message.  Maybe not.  But it would sure be a fine start in the right direction.
