Top 10 Lies of HBO’s ‘Game Change’

If Republicans weren’t the stupid damn party they would be nominating Palin as their choice to run against Obama! The left is terrified of her. Witness the big guns they rolled out, Tom Hanks being one of them, to attack a politician that many Republicans try to tell us is washed up, has been, quitter…notice that Hollywood hasn’t made any movies attacking Mitt , Newt or Rick…gosh is it because they don’t have plenty of material to use? Really?

Well here are the Top Ten Lies of HBO’s Game Change.

Defenders of HBO’s "Game Change" have fought back against those who criticize the politically charged film as a two-hour attack on Sarah Palin. They claim that unless a person has watched it in its entirety, they cannot judge its content or the people involved with the project.

Well, I’ve seen the entire movie, so don’t mind me while I go ahead and judge this piece of high-dollar propaganda.

"Game Change" is pretty easy to deconstruct. At its core, it’s a left-wing project designed to make one of their most hated political enemies toxic. They used people with an axe to grind to legitimize the story they want viewers to believe and help push their agenda. They also have no problem lying.

Honestly, it was difficult to narrow down this list because there were so many fabrications and distortions throughout the film, but here are the top ten lies produced by HBO.

Lie #10: HBO released a defensive statement to the press along with screeners of the film saying the project "is a balanced portrayal of the McCain/Palin campaign." Having seen the movie in its entirety, I can say that that statement is beyond absurd. There was nothing "balanced" about the story they told. As someone who has studied Palin’s career for years, I can say that I didn’t even recognize the person sold as "Governor Palin," here played by Julianne Moore.

Beyond the grotesque character assassination, there is a heavy partisan imbalance at work. "Game Change" portrays most Republicans in a bad light — everyone minus Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), Nicolle Wallace (Sarah Paulson), Mark Wallace (Ron Livingston), and Chris Edwards (Larry Sullivan). One character refers to former Vice President Dick Cheney as "Darth Vader," while the McCain/Palin rallies depict unhinged men yelling "terrorist" and "he’s a Muslim" at the mention of Obama’s name. Then, there was the the quote they placed toward the end of the movie which had Sen. John McCain (Ed Harris) warning Palin not to get "co-opted by Limbaugh and the other extremists." None of these instances were balanced and were clearly told from a left-wing point of view.

Lie #9: Virtually every characteristic attributed to Palin in "Game Change" is false. They portray her as egotistical, ungracious, demanding, stupid, forgetful and, cruelest of all, mentally unstable. They do show her as a loving mother, even though they have her go into "catatonic stupors" when separated from her children. Even when they’re trying to be nice they’re mean. I don’t know Palin personally, but I know people who do. I have never heard any stories that fit the descriptions listed above; in fact, I’ve heard just the opposite.

An egotistical person wouldn’t put her state’s well-being before her own political career. An ungracious person wouldn’t spend her time making long phone calls to supporters, giving them shout-outs at rallies, or spending countless time shaking their hands on rope-lines. It also appears as though Alec Baldwin didn’t get the lefty memo. In October of 2008, after meeting her on the set on SNL, Baldwin describes Palin as "polite" and "gracious." Oops!

"Game Change" also depicts Palin as highly forgetful. Around the 70 minute mark, Mark Wallace tells Steve Schmidt that Palin couldn’t remember "any" of the information he used to prep her for the debate. As it turns out, another Democrat didn’t get the memo. In 2008, former editor in chief of Ms. magazine, Elaine Lafferty wrote:

I’d heard rumors around the campaign of her photographic memory and, frankly, I watched it in action. She sees. She processes. She questions, and only then, she acts.

Lafferty also said Palin was "smart" and "more than a quick study." She, however, was not interviewed by "Game Change" screenwriter Danny Strong for the film. Seriously, if you think Palin is stupid, just read her emails. Dumb, mentally unstable people prone to falling into "catatonic stupors" don’t generally work their way up to governor. She did, and she did it all on her own. From top to bottom, the "Palin" character is absolute fiction. She is nothing more than a left-wing day dream of who they wish Palin was.

Lie #8: "Game Change" depicts Palin as unwilling to go on stage with Jeb Bradley because he is pro-choice. At the 92 minute mark of the film, Palin tells a staffer:

There’s no way I’m going on stage with anyone who’s pro-choice.

When HBO sends out statements telling people that they "ensure" the "historical accuracy" of the research they conduct, they’re lying. If this woman refused to go on stage with anyone because they’re pro-choice, why did she attend rallies with Joe Lieberman in Pennsylvania and Florida during the campaign? Why did she also allow the L.A. President of NOW to introduce her at yet another rally during the campaign in question? Palin doesn’t ostracize people for having a different opinion than she does. Frankly, that’s more in line with behavior I have come to expect from the left.

Lie #7: The movie suggests Palin wanted to flee Alaska. At the 89 minute mark, Palin whispers into Schmidt’s ear:

I so don’t want to go back to Alaska.

Never mind Moore’s horrendous acting; the statement is ridiculous. If Palin "so" wanted to get out of Alaska, why does she still live there? And how exactly do you explain "Sarah Palin’s Alaska"?

Top 10 Lies of HBO’s ‘Game Change’

Death Panels…Gosh That Sarah Palin Is Sooo Stupid That Would Never Happen! Half Of Euthanasia Cases Belgium INVOLUNTARY! Oopsy…

Updated another rushed attempt at proofing…

Well you may or may not know this but the Elite in the US are REALLY enamored with all of Europe’s systems, especially the vaunted cradle to grave medical system. Little did we know the system might be encouraging folks into the grave sooner than they might wish. Kinda makes you wonder why the bastards just don’t move there, but I digress. This love of all things European includes both Republican and Democrat politicians but of course Democrats are much worse…

One of the reasons the elite (both sides of the political spectrum) in the US really hate Governor Palin is her down home way of framing issues.  While all the other Republicans are running polls on whether they can have an opinion or not she steps right out there.

Noisy Room has more…

For instance everyone in the elite had quite the laugh about Governor Palin calling out Obama’s death panel…oooh that Sarah Palin is such a rube. They tried to shut her down with ridicule…but that only works on folks who don’t know what they believe, doesn’t work on Gov Palin. Doesn’t she KNOW how they do it in Europe? Here is the initial quote by Governor Palin.

And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Well that kicked over the ant mound real quick like…and here are a selection of delicious quotes by both sides of those bastards in DC…well hell let’s forget about Democrats since we KNOW what they think. Kill Granny!

GOP Rep. Jack Kingston distanced himself from Palin: Kingston said, “I agree. It’s rhetorical. It’s a scare tactic. There’s no question about it.” Rep. Kingston also said that there are no death panels.

On Meet the Press today David Brooks called Palin’s claims crazy, “Yeah. Again, that’s crazy. If–the, the, the crazies are attacking the plan because it’ll cut off granny, and that–that’s simply not true. That simply is not going to happen.”

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (Republican-Alaska) told a crowd in Anchorage in August 2009, "It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there’s these end-of-life provisions, these death panels". She added, "There is no reason to gin up fear in the American public by saying things that are not included in the bill".[78]

In a July 2010 National Public Radio segment entitled "The Politics Of Anger", Representative Bob Inglis, (Republican-South Carolina) said, "I think it’s never a good strategy to travel on misinformation. Talking about death panels when there are no death panels is a disservice to the country and, long-term, to the conservative movement."[79]

President Buffoon joked about death panels…(which has me wondering just exactly how do we get out of the jam we are in when over half the population voted for this jackass)

President Obama, meanwhile, treated Palin’s criticism as a joke. As we noted at the time, he told a New Hampshire town meeting: "The rumor that’s been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for ‘death panels’ that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we’ve decided that we don’t–it’s too expensive to let her live anymore." The transcript records that the audience laughed at this callous "joke."

Naturally Gov. Palin didn’t back down…she just doubled down. heh…and realize that I am unable to show that for a few moments (days) Gov. Palin was undefended…because Republicans are completely unable to understand that the world view of Democrats is not only less efficient, something Republicans understand, but it is evil, something Republicans by and large do not understand because they view Democrats as occupying the moral high ground. Of course this is absurd, but if your view of the world is that we are all here to sacrifice ourselves to others, then holding up individual rights as god given is difficult. Governor Palin shows the way forward…

"If the health care bill goes the way Obama wants it, we’re gonna have something very much like foreign countries’ systems of health care like the British, and it’s the American people — if we have our health care paid for by the bureaucracy, by government — depending on our health condition, depending on our age — we’re gonna be subject to bureaucrats deciding, panels and commissions deciding — just like they do overseas — who will be worthy of receiving the health care that government is going to provide."

"So that is the death panel that I referred to, and I won’t back off on criticizing that aspect of the health care bill."

So here we are years later, still laughing at that “rube” Gov. Palin and this story pops up. The biggest take away from this article isn’t the idea that they may begin harvesting organs after they euthanize folks…no. The biggest take away is that over half of the euthanasia cases in Belgium are involuntary! Half, 5 out of 10 folks are murdered against their wishes by their own goddamn government! Those Europeans sure are superior to us…

Euthanasia Study Raises ‘Chilling’ Concern That Patients Could be Killed to Harvest Better Organs – FoxNews.com

“Insofar as euthanasia has been legalized in Belgium, it’s hard to see why they wouldn’t want to take organs for transplantation,” said Ana Iltis, director of the Center for Bioethics Health and Society at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. “People tend to respond with an ‘Ick,’ but that response should be about euthanasia. Once you accept that physicians are going to kill patients, it seems logical that they would harvest those organs for transplantation.”

Dr. Peter Saunders of the group, Care Not Killing, which is a U.K.-based alliance opposed to euthanasia, expressed to The Daily Telegraph that he is very concerned about what is unfolding in Belgium.

“Given that half of all euthanasia cases in Belgium are involuntary, it must be only a matter of time before the organs are taken from patients who are euthanized without their consent,” Saunders told The Telegraph. “The matter of fact way the retrieval process is described in the paper is particularly chilling and shows the degree of collaboration that is necessary between the euthanasia team and the transplant surgeons – prep them for theater next to the operating room, then kill them and wheel them in for organ retrieval. All in a day’s work in Brave New Belgium. Doctors there are now doing things that most doctors in other countries would find absolutely horrific.”

And one might wonder whether doctors will adapt to their new role as ghouls murdering folks against their wishes for the betterment of society? And if they adapt to their new roles then exactly how does that impact healthcare? This might be a good time to review part of the classic oath doctor’s used to take. They have since dispensed with this anachronistic paean to the care of the sick…

I will apply dietic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.

Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.

What I may see or hear in the course of treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep myself holding such things shameful to be spoken about.

If I fulfill this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honoured with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.

Yes so that Sarah Palin sure is a rube…would all the politicians who are so goddamn fascinated with Europe please just go ahead and move there and leave us the fuck alone?

Can Our Nation Be Saved? Nope…

To expect our nation to be saved is to hope that nearly half of the population of the United States will have a revelation causing them to question their desire to press a lever that feeds them a pellet of goodness provided to them at the point of a gun by a diminishing group of producers. This hope of saving our nation becomes even more faint when you consider that even among the producers there exists those ugly creatures who, while themselves being forced at the point of a gun into paying for the pellets of others, willingly press a lever that pumps out a narcotic pill of goodness. Walter E. Williams gets it…not many do on our side.

Everyone who receives government largesse and special favors deems his needs as vital, deserving, proper and in the national interest. It is entirely unreasonable to expect a politician to honor and obey our Constitution and in the process commit political suicide. What’s even worse for our nation is that voters ousting a politician who’d refuse to bring, say, aid to higher education back to his constituents is perfectly rational. If, for example, he’s a Virginia politician and doesn’t bring higher education grants back to his constituents, it doesn’t mean Virginian taxpayers will pay a lower income tax. All that it means is that Marylanders will get the money instead. Once legalized theft begins, it pays for everyone to participate. Those who don’t will be losers.

That’s the nation’s dilemma. The most important job for people who want to spare our nation from economic collapse is not that of persuading politicians to do the right thing but to convince our fellow Americans to respect the limits of our Constitution. In his speech to Virginia’s ratifying convention, James Madison said, "Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it."

1000 Point Drop DOW!?! Greeks Burning Greeks! Wall Street Bonuses Out of Control! Time For The Fed To Bailout Europe…Yea Baby Give Me More!

With Obama’s apparent strategy leaning towards exploring every single way to collapse the United States, it isn’t a surprise that we are bailing out Europe. Ah, all the wonderful leftists love to crow about this or that European fashion, ridiculous pensions, life time employment, huge bureaucracies, nanny state, check, check, check, check and check, leftists in the US want all of that! Don’t worry though because it is the rare conservative indeed who will speak out against the “safety net” indeed finding a so-called right wing politician who will admit forthrightly that he intends to cut spending is akin to finding a leftist questioning the idea that someone’s “needs” trumps my freedom. (This makes Conservative NJ Governor Chris Christie a real up and comer and Ron Paul a saint) We are going straight to hell and the goddamn hand basket is in flames! Anyways Zero Hedge as usual is all the way around the story. Really if you aren’t reading Zero Hedge, The Market Ticker ®, Financial Armageddon, Calculated Risk, Dollar Collapse and a few others then all of what is happening is a big ass shock to you. Being surprised is only fun for your birthday.

We are rapidly approaching a point where it simply won’t matter whether the politicians and their needy minions want to cut this or that “safety net”…we have outgrown our ability to pay for all we have promised. As economist Robert Samuelson points out in a recent article we are witnessing the Welfare State’s Death Spiral. And this European Bailout is the sort of dumb move, that will accelerate our final reckoning. What is hilarious and indicative of Obama’s desire to destroy this country is that at the VERY the same time we rushing to adopt all of the sorts of policies that put Europe in that position. Weee!

Well guess what: with about $500 billion in liquidity swaps about to hit the asset side of the ledger (that’s a conservative estimate based on the last time the Fed went full bore on bailing out Europe, and sorry, that European bailout does not come cheap), Excess Reserves (fed liabilities) are about to skyrocket by a comparable amount to match the assets. And here is the double whammy: $500 billion in new excess reserves earning 0.25% for holder banks, means US banks are about to earn an additional $1.25 billion a year risk-free courtesy of US taxpayers, who already are getting the shaft by paying more for gas thanks to the privilege of having bailed out Europe and drowned the world in new and unprecedented gobs of excess liquidity! Simply stated, the Greek “bailout” is a roundabout way of funneling over another extra billion to US banks! Direct cost to US taxpayers to bailout Europe via IMF: $50 billion; Indirect cost to fund incremental bank excess reserves: $1.25 billion; The joy of being raped daily by the Fed-Wall Street complex and assuring another year of record Wall Street bonuses: priceless. Some things money can’t buy. For everything else there are trillions in Federal Reserve Notes appearing each and every day out of thin air.

‘Those who (laughingly) “represent” us in Congress are vulnerable for the oldest of reasons: they do not have clean hands.’

Read this analysis of the situation our politicians find themselves in after today’s march and tell me it doesn’t ring true!

From Garry Hamilton in e-mail originally and now posted at his wife’s site… this must read:

It should be remembered that in any public demonstration of activism, the percentage of participation — from within the larger group of like-minded constituents — is not only typically single digits, but down at one or two percent.

If you can muster a million actual people, physically present, there will be AT LEAST between 50 and 100 people who would have gone or wanted to go but were prevented from so doing by logistics. And current estimates put the number in attendance at two million or more.

Meaning that their sentiments are shared by anywhere from 100 million to 200 million people. Of whom, I would reckon the solid majority are registered voters.

If I am a member of either House of Congress, these numbers tell me something about my future, and give me pause to contemplate the weight of the two primary threats to my career: “shall I succumb to the blackmail and extortion from the Administration, or cave in to the wishes of my constituents?”

Those who (laughingly) “represent” us in Congress are vulnerable for the oldest of reasons: they do not have clean hands.

You cannot threaten an honest man. You have no leverage. The best you can do is simple thuggery. And against a man of integrity and courage, you don’t even have that.

All but the most arrogant among our legislators have to know, now, the mind of those they presume to represent.

All but the most hubris-polluted will know that the usual shrug-and-dismiss protocol obtains no traction.

Even with the abetting silence of the Fourth Estate, they must know they have no cover.

What remains to be seen is who among them shall offer contrition and seek reconciliation with those whose hand holds the ballot.

I suspect — if what seems actually IS — that those who bluster that it wasn’t their fault, or that they didn’t know, or, indeed, that they were right (in spite of the evidence) will be sitting out the remainder of the game from the next election forward.

I only pray there are enough people left who don’t want the job to replace those husks of rotting souls who have believed that their election was the winning ticket to the ultimate privilege lottery.

Brutally Honest: ‘Those who (laughingly) “represent” us in Congress are vulnerable for the oldest of reasons: they do not have clean hands.’

As Glenn Beck is so very fond of saying…We Surround Them!

 

Oh and watch this…really stop what you are doing and watch it.

 

YOU LIE! A PATRIOT STANDS UP AND CALLS BULLSHIT TO OBAMA!

Teleprompter Jesus got his little self referential show interrupted by a Patriot!

Here is Republican Joe Wilson of SC calling Obama a liar!

Obama heckled by SC congressman Joe Wilson

WASHINGTON — The nastiness of August’s health care debate reached into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday as President Barack Obama tried to move his reform plan forward.

South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You lie!" after Obama had talked about illegal immigrants.

It wasn’t the only interruption during Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives. Earlier, Republicans laughed when Obama acknowledged that there are still significant details to be worked out before a health care overhaul can be passed.

Wilson’s outburst caused Obama to pause briefly before he went on with his speech. Overhead in the visitors’ gallery, first Lady Michelle Obama shook her head from side to side.

Death Panels An Interview With President Obama – NYTimes.com

Hahaha…That Sarah off on a tangent again…Death Panels??? Can I get a Harrumph!?!

Oh wait…hmmm this looks bad.

Now, I actually think that the tougher issue around medical care — it’s a related one — is what you do around things like end-of-life care —

Yes, where it’s $20,000 for an extra week of life.

THE PRESIDENT: Exactly. And I just recently went through this. I mean, I’ve told this story, maybe not publicly, but when my grandmother got very ill during the campaign, she got cancer; it was determined to be terminal. And about two or three weeks after her diagnosis she fell, broke her hip. It was determined that she might have had a mild stroke, which is what had precipitated the fall.

So now she’s in the hospital, and the doctor says, Look, you’ve got about — maybe you have three months, maybe you have six months, maybe you have nine months to live. Because of the weakness of your heart, if you have an operation on your hip there are certain risks that — you know, your heart can’t take it. On the other hand, if you just sit there with your hip like this, you’re just going to waste away and your quality of life will be terrible.

And she elected to get the hip replacement and was fine for about two weeks after the hip replacement, and then suddenly just — you know, things fell apart.

I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost. I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she’s my grandmother. Whether, sort of in the aggregate, society making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill is a sustainable model, is a very difficult question. If somebody told me that my grandmother couldn’t have a hip replacement and she had to lie there in misery in the waning days of her life — that would be pretty upsetting.

And it’s going to be hard for people who don’t have the option of paying for it.

THE PRESIDENT: So that’s where I think you just get into some very difficult moral issues. But that’s also a huge driver of cost, right?

I mean, the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill out here.

So how do you — how do we deal with it?

This is where it gets ugly…and just as lawyers have been trained to do from the beginning of time he does not allow himself to be cornered into saying that these conversations, guided by panels made up of Doctors, Scientists and errr ethicists, will not be voluntary. The elephant in the room is the idea that this “Death Panel” will not have the power to make blanket rules about circumstances which the government should not fund.

I am from the Government and I am here to help.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think that there is going to have to be a conversation that is guided by doctors, scientists, ethicists. And then there is going to have to be a very difficult democratic conversation that takes place. It is very difficult to imagine the country making those decisions just through the normal political channels. And that’s part of why you have to have some independent group that can give you guidance. It’s not determinative, but I think has to be able to give you some guidance. And that’s part of what I suspect you’ll see emerging out of the various health care conversations that are taking place on the Hill right now.   After the Great Recession – An Interview With President Obama – NYTimes.com

One has to wonder who Obama might want on his “independent” group.

John Holdren springs to mind…

John P. Holdren is advisor to President Barack Obama for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST)

Here are some choice quotes from the guy Obama might tap to be on an independent group giving guidance to the sick. Take it away Johnny! All of the following material is borrowed from the absolutely remarkable work by Zombietime blog.

Harrison Brown’s most remarkable book, The Challenge of Man’s Future (Viking, 1954; reprinted by Westview, 1984), was published more than three decades ago. By the time I read it as a high school student a few years later, the book had been widely acclaimed as a monumental survey of the human prospect, illuminated through analysis of the interaction of population, technology, and the resources of the physical world. I knew even before high school that science and technology held special interest for me, and I suppose I also had some prior interest in the larger human condition. But The Challenge of Man’s Future pulled these interests together for me in a way that transformed my thinking about the world and about the sort of career I wanted to pursue. I have always suspected that I am not the only member of my generation whose aspirations and subsequent career were changed by this book of Harrison Brown’s.

What was so special about the book? Perhaps most impressive at the time was the combination of audacity and erudition with which Brown wove together insights from anthropology, history, economics, geochemistry, biology, and the study of technology to provide a coherent, multidimensional picture of his subject—how humans have provided themselves with the physical ingredients of existence in the past, their prospects for doing so in the future, and the connections between these matters and the sociopolitical dimensions of the human condition. As a demonstration of the power of (and necessity for) an interdisciplinary approach to global problems, the book was a tour de force.

And who is it exactly that Holdren admires so much? Well Harrison is a swell character. Here are some quotes from the book that Holdren claims had such an impact on his choice for his life’s work.

Page 105 of The Challenge of Man’s Future by Harrison Brown

First, man can discourage unfit persons from breeding. Second, he can encourage breeding by those persons who are judged fit on the basis of physical and mental testing and examinations of the records of their ancestors.

Priorities for artificial insemination could be given to healthy women of high intelligence whose ancestors possessed no dangerous genetic defects. Conversely, priorities for abortions could be given to less intelligent persons of biologically unsound stock.

Such steps would undoubtedly contribute substantially to a slowing down of species deterioration. But it is clear that they would by no means be sufficient. A broad eugenics program would have to be formulated which would aid in the establishment of policies that would encourage able and healthy persons to have several offspring and discourage the unfit from breeding at excessive rates.

Here is Obama’s science advisor Holdren again lauding the perversion of life that Brown represents. We fought a bloody war against another group of maniacs who thought they knew who was fit and who wasn’t. Now we are putting this maniacs into office. Take it away Obama Science advisor Holdren.

Here are some more choice quotes from this “Tour de Force” The Challenge of Man’s Future by Harrison Brown.

In the first place, it is amply clear that population stabilization and a world composed of completely independent sovereign states are incompatible. Populations cannot be stabilized by agreement any more than levels of armament can be stabilized by agreement. And, as in the latter case, a world authority is needed which has the power of making, interpreting, and enforcing, within specified spheres, laws which are directly applicable to the individual. Indeed, population stabilization is one of the two major problems with which a world government must necessarily concern itself.

Given a world authority with jurisdiction over population problems, the task of assessing maximum permissible population levels on a regional basis need not be prohibitively difficult.

We are handing our lives over to a bunch of folks who think it is ok to decide who lives and who dies. We are handing our lives over to a bunch of folks who further think that there are too many humans on the planet. We are handing our lives to folks whose friends have talked about eliminating millions because they hold the wrong philosophy on life…take it away Weathermen.

The title of this post is a partial quote from FBI Operative and Army veteran Larry Grathwohl who infiltrated the Weather Underground combined with an observation of my wife. It was question to Billy Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn and other Weathermen during a conversation about what they envisioned the United States would look like after they won the war. Yes he confirms that Billy Ayers, a person Obama called a guy in his neighborhood, was in the room when this was said: (thank you to Bob Owens from Confederate Yankee for a terrific article and to Pajama Media for hosting it!)

I asked, Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists? And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say eliminate, I mean kill.

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

So when you laugh at Sarah Palin…maybe it is almost like whistling past the graveyard eh? Cause the folks we have managed to put into power are just this dangerous.

IT’S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG! SARAH COUNTER ATTACKS! Heh…She Baited Him, He Bit, Then Barracuda Set The Hook! Leftist Fanatics…It’s What Sarah Eats For Breakfast.

Facebook | Sarah Palin: Concerning the "Death Panels" This is going to leave a mark. Sarah is smacking this socialist shit of a President up around the head like a red haired step child…

Yesterday President Obama responded to my statement that Democratic health care proposals would lead to rationed care; that the sick, the elderly, and the disabled would suffer the most under such rationing; and that under such a system these “unproductive” members of society could face the prospect of government bureaucrats determining whether they deserve health care.
The President made light of these concerns. He said:

“Let me just be specific about some things that I’ve been hearing lately that we just need to dispose of here. The rumor that’s been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for death panels that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we’ve decided that we don’t, it’s too expensive to let her live anymore….It turns out that I guess this arose out of a provision in one of the House bills that allowed Medicare to reimburse people for consultations about end-of-life care, setting up living wills, the availability of hospice, etc. So the intention of the members of Congress was to give people more information so that they could handle issues of end-of-life care when they’re ready on their own terms. It wasn’t forcing anybody to do anything.” [1]

The provision that President Obama refers to is Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled “Advance Care Planning Consultation.” [2] With all due respect, it’s misleading for the President to describe this section as an entirely voluntary provision that simply increases the information offered to Medicare recipients. The issue is the context in which that information is provided and the coercive effect these consultations will have in that context.
Section 1233 authorizes advanced care planning consultations for senior citizens on Medicare every five years, and more often “if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual … or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility… or a hospice program." [3] During those consultations, practitioners must explain “the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice,” and the government benefits available to pay for such services. [4]

Now put this in context. These consultations are authorized whenever a Medicare recipient’s health changes significantly or when they enter a nursing home, and they are part of a bill whose stated purpose is “to reduce the growth in health care spending.” [5] Is it any wonder that senior citizens might view such consultations as attempts to convince them to help reduce health care costs by accepting minimal end-of-life care? As Charles Lane notes in the Washington Post, Section 1233 “addresses compassionate goals in disconcerting proximity to fiscal ones…. If it’s all about alleviating suffering, emotional or physical, what’s it doing in a measure to “bend the curve” on health-care costs?” [6]
As Lane also points out:

Though not mandatory, as some on the right have claimed, the consultations envisioned in Section 1233 aren’t quite “purely voluntary,” as Rep. Sander M. Levin (D-Mich.) asserts. To me, “purely voluntary” means “not unless the patient requests one.” Section 1233, however, lets doctors initiate the chat and gives them an incentive — money — to do so. Indeed, that’s an incentive to insist.
Patients may refuse without penalty, but many will bow to white-coated authority. Once they’re in the meeting, the bill does permit “formulation” of a plug-pulling order right then and there. So when Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) denies that Section 1233 would “place senior citizens in situations where they feel pressured to sign end-of-life directives that they would not otherwise sign,” I don’t think he’s being realistic.
[7]

Even columnist Eugene Robinson, a self-described “true believer” who “will almost certainly support” “whatever reform package finally emerges”, agrees that “If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care, citizens are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.” [8]

So are these usually friendly pundits wrong? Is this all just a “rumor” to be “disposed of”, as President Obama says? Not according to Democratic New York State Senator Ruben Diaz, Chairman of the New York State Senate Aging Committee, who writes:
Section 1233 of House Resolution 3200 puts our senior citizens on a slippery slope and may diminish respect for the inherent dignity of each of their lives…. It is egregious to consider that any senior citizen … should be placed in a situation where he or she would feel pressured to save the government money by dying a little sooner than he or she otherwise would, be required to be counseled about the supposed benefits of killing oneself, or be encouraged to sign any end of life directives that they would not otherwise sign. [9]

Of course, it’s not just this one provision that presents a problem. My original comments concerned statements made by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor to President Obama and the brother of the President’s chief of staff. Dr. Emanuel has written that some medical services should not be guaranteed to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens….An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” [10] Dr. Emanuel has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which “produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.” [11]

President Obama can try to gloss over the effects of government authorized end-of-life consultations, but the views of one of his top health care advisors are clear enough. It’s all just more evidence that the Democratic legislative proposals will lead to health care rationing, and more evidence that the top-down plans of government bureaucrats will never result in real health care reform.
