GOVERNACIDE: An “Obamacare” death

Woman in class-action lawsuit against Xerox dies

*** begin quote ***

Time ran out for Linda Rolain.

The Las Vegas woman died Monday, less than two weeks after her family went public with details of how enrollment trouble through the Nevada Health Link insurance exchange kept her from getting treatment in January for an aggressive brain tumor.

Rolain was one of about 150 Nevadans suing Nevada Health Link contractor Xerox for enrollment mixups that left them without the health insurance they paid for.

Rolain is the first to die of complications from an illness that her family said went untreated for lack of coverage. But observers close to her case say she may not be the last, because others are in similarly urgent situations.

*** end quote ***

Now no one is saying that without the screw up she would have survived, …

… BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), …

… … … it couldn’t have helped and may well have shortened her time.

The hubris of Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats is stunning.

Remembering that the whole “benefits” issue is the direct result of Gooferment meddling.

  •  WW2 Wage and Price controls forced companies to offer “benefits” as non-cash compensation
  • The Tax Code gave corporations breaks on “benefits” that individuals didn’t get (A corporation can deduct healthcare insurance costs, but an individual tax payer can’t!)
  • The Gooferment created Medicare and forced the old into a Gooferment “reservation”. (Medicare works as well as the VA healthcare and Indian healthcare.)
  • Obamacare

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!

This is the first death; there will be more.

GOVERNACIDE: County Galway mass grave

Mass grave of up to 800 dead babies exposed in County Galway
Cahir O’Doherty @irishcentral May 26,2014 04:22 AM

*** begin quote ***

Church officials have consistently denied that they ever received payments for these adoptions, insisting many of the papers and documents from that period were lost in a fire. 

Since there was simply no question of the birth mothers keeping their children – the shame was thought too ruinous – they lost all future claim to them. Their punishment was to work without wages for two or three years in atonement for their sins. In the homes they wore uniforms at all times, they had their names changed and they had their letters censored.

Critics contend that the ongoing reluctance of Irish religious orders to hand over their internal records or compensate past victims of mothers and babies homes, Magdalene laundries and reform schools, can be traced to their alarm over being compelled to offer mandatory payments or fear that further horrors could come to light. 

But calls for investigation of the various sites are growing. In the end, critics say, it should fall to the state itself to open the unmarked graves and count the dead.

This is shocking.

It’s a Gooferment and Church failure.

At the very least, there deserves to be a thorough investigation and inquest.

Legion: VA secret list ‘abhorrent’

BY Marty Callaghan – April 24, 2014

*** begin quote ***

“We’re going to find out what happened in Phoenix,” Dellinger said. “We are going to find out who was responsible for this secret list and if they are still working for VA. These preventable deaths keep mounting, and yet we see not a single VA manager being held accountable. The American Legion will work with Congress and the VA Central Office to find out exactly what has been happening, and why. It is not sufficient for VA to simply say it’s going to try to do better next time, without holding people accountable.”

GOVERNACIDE: Stalin DID order the Katyn massacre; FDR covered it up

Monday, January 13, 2014

Stalin DID order the execution of 3,500 Polish soldiers according to newly discovered testimony of U.S. officer who watched Nazis exhume the bodies

U.S. researcher Krystyna Piorkowska found testimony from U.S. Lt Col John H Val Vliet from May 1945
In the statement he says he witnessed Nazis exhuming the bodies of 3,500 Polish soldiers killed under Stalin

Vliet’s testimony fuels speculation that the U.S. tried to cover up the genocide to keep the Soviets on their side for the end of the war

PUBLISHED: 02:12 EST, 9 January 2014 | UPDATED: 06:00 EST, 9 January 2014

*** begin quote ***

Another report that Van Vliet made a few days later in Washington is considered missing. This has fueled speculation that the U.S. government helped cover up Soviet responsibility for the massacre out of fear that saying the truth would anger Stalin, whom the Allies were counting on to help them defeat Germany and Japan in World War II.

How far has the Gooferment strayed from morality?

GOVERNACIDE: TWA Flight 800 shot down by a Navy missile?

Monday, June 24, 2013

Witness: ‘I’d be willing to bet dollars to donuts that we shot the plane down’
Published: 13 mins ago

*** begin quote ***

The impending release of a new documentary has dramatically revived media interest in the destruction of TWA Flight 800, the Paris-bound plane that blew up off the coast of Long Island in July 1996.

Although producers Tom Stalcup and Kristina Borjesson do not name names or point fingers, the video leads the viewer to believe that the U.S. Navy accidentally shot the plane down.

The video features a half-dozen truth tellers from within the investigation, and the news of it has inspired several more to step forward, including one who talked with WND about the disaster Friday.

Mack, not his real name, cautioned that his information was limited, but his insights had merit nonetheless. Mack was a crewmember on the sub, the USS Albuquerque.

This was one of three subs acknowledged by FBI spokesman James Kallstrom as being in the “immediate vicinity” of the crash site. The other two were the USS Trepang and the USS Wyoming.

MINEOLA, N.Y. (TheBlaze/AP) — Authorities say a police officer’s bullet killed a New York college student during the response to a home invasion at an off-campus home.

Nassau County homicide squad Lt. John Azzata said Saturday night that Andrea Rebello was killed by a police officer as she was being held in a headlock by a masked intruder.

*** end quote ***

I don’t fault the police officer. He was in a bad situation. It’s only int he movies that the bad guy can get shot and the hostage walks away.

Doesn’t anyone ask why was a repeat violent felon on parole in the first place. And, when he violated his parole, why wasn’t he scooped up?

Then, let’s talk about the “NY Safe Act” and the culture of “Victim Disarmament” that exists in New York, Chicago, LA, and New Orleans.

I don’t KNOW that an armed “good guy” could have changed the outcome. But, could it have made it any worse?


Is this an example of “political wishful thinking”?

The world is a dangerous place made even more so when the Sheeple and Clovers forgo their own defense.

GOVERNACIDE: Poor growth tied to fiat money; it’s a “killer”

Friday, October 26, 2012

Markets Alert
from The Wall Street Journal

U.S. economic growth picked up in the third quarter as consumers spent more, federal government spending accelerated and the housing industry improved in the months leading up to November’s presidential election.

The nation’s gross domestic product–the broadest measure of goods and services produced by the economy–grew at an annual rate of 2% between July and September, the Commerce Department said Friday.

# – # – #  

A national disgrace.

IF you believe the Gooferment’s numbers!

Doesn’t “feel” like 2% to me. Just like “unemployment” doesn’t feel like 8%. And, inflation, don’t make me laff, ain’t ZERO! (Gasoline four years ago was UNDER $2 / per gallon and yday I paid 3¾$ per gallon! That’s 80% over four years or 20% per year. Consider that gas costs gets built into EVERY product and service created!)

Sorry, but we a “KILLING” people.

I trace it back to the “funny money”. It allows the politicians and bureaucrats to fool us. And, the standard that money should represent.

I think Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and others have demonstrated the path. Peaceful non-cooperation.

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

GOVERNACIDE: Who knew what when — Benghazi edition

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Who Knew, Redux

*** begin quote ***

It doesn’t take a foreign policy wonk to understand why the Obama Administration is so desperate to “spin” its version of how Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate (and diplomatic safe house) in Benghazi, Libya almost two weeks ago, resulting in the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.  As the true details of that incident begin to emerge, one thing is clear: this is a security, intelligence and leadership debacle of the first magnitude.

Mr. Stevens and his colleagues didn’t have to have to die–it’s that simple.  There were warnings of a possible attack up to three days prior, from Libyan officials and Egyptian intelligence.  There are also indications that the Brits knew something was up and shared that information with us, but to no avail.  Ambassador Stevens, who reportedly told co-workers he “had a price on his head,” elected to travel to the unsecure Benghazi facility, with no dedicated security detail.  However, it is unclear if Stevens received the latest threat information before setting out for the consulate.

And, it now evident that senior U.S. officials knew the Benghazi compound was under attack as it unfolded (emphasis ours).  According to media reports, President Obama was told of the assault between 90 minutes and three hours into the incident.  He later went to bed, before the fate of Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues was determined. 

*** and ***

Based on what we’re hearing, it seems likely that President Obama was in receipt of similar messages on the night our consulate was breached and Ambassador Stevens was murdered, along with three other Americans.  And, if NSA was monitoring terrorist phone calls in the run-up to the attack, there is a very real possibility that the commander-in-chief knew what was going on well before the “three hour” mark.  That possibility raises very real questions about what Mr. Obama knew, when he knew it, and his initial response to the crisis.

As Congress digs deeper into the incident, they should ask the NSA Director (General Keith Alexander) about CRITIC reporting from Libya on the night in question.  The amount of CRITIC reporting by NSA is very small–usually no more than a handful of messages a year.  It won’t be very hard to determine if any FLASH/CRITIC messages were sent to the White House that night; when the President received them, and exactly what he knew before his “command decision” to go back to bed.

“… real questions about what Mr. Obama knew, when he knew it, and his initial response to the crisis.”

This is what it always comes down to.

The cover up. 

The media and the talking heads roasted Bush43 on the events of 9/11.

Yet, with this, we hear nothing.

Having worked at NSA, I know how serious they are about the mission.

We spend a lot of money on Gooferment. Be nice to know if we got our moneys worth!

Politicians send troops abroad to die. Then they bestow fake honor on them at home. It’s called Memorial Day.

Chances are EVERY member of Congress will be back in their district, pontificating and posing as a patriot, who values the sacrifice of the fallen.

Maybe I’m a curmudgeon. Maybe I’m a cynic. Maybe I’m just a disagreeable SOB.

He knew the truth about “Viet Nam, Republic of”, but played along with the “gag”.

He confessed later on.

Too late for 55k boys who made the ultimate sacrifice because they weren’t in on the “gag”.

Ditto for WW1; Wilson’s war. Ditto for WW2; FDR’s war. Ditto for Korea; Truman’s war.

Sorry, but “We, The Sheeple” have put a stop to politician’s standing on the graves of a lot of good men and women to make their speeches.

Time to call them to account.

When the “enemy” arrives at the water’s edge, then, and only then, should we be asking the youth to defend their land.



Not in the least. 

Dissent is by definition patriotic.

Like Ron Paul says: “… first thing smoking coming in this direction …”!

Sorry, but I think the best way to honor Decoration Day is stop creating more graves to “decorate”.

And, the fact, that a charity has to pander on TV for funds to take care of the “wounded warriors”, is further national disgrace.

Tell me about how that’s fixed and the girls and boys aren’t wasting their blood, then you can celebrate “Memorial Day”.

Argh! To the n-th power.

GOVERNACIDE: “Prostitute-gate” gets a bigger reaction than “Fast and Furious”

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Another Letter from A.X. Perez

Anyone who has any doubt about the pro administration bias of the media or the anti gun bias of our media need only look at the current Secret Service scandal. I may be mistaken but it seems to me that over the last two weeks the news have given more time to the fuss created by Secret Service agents trying to cheat prostitutes out of their pay than it has given the Gunwalker Scandal over the last two years.

Anyone who pays attention to things will note that more people have been fired, reprimanded, or allowed to quit over cheapskate gate (doesn’t even rate caps) than have been punished over Operation Fast and Furious. Apparently the Government “error” which caused the deaths of some two hundred or so Mexican citizens, plus American citizens killed because they were visiting kin in Mexico, plus at least two American Law Enfocement agents is less noteworthy than Secret Service agents defrauding whores.

The United States Government’s Willful Ignorance Is Costing Soldiers’ Lives
Posted by John Bernard, 1st Sgt. USMC (ret.)
Dec 29th 2011 at 5:23 pm

*** begin quote ***

To that end, it has been my contention that this administration, the past administration and the entire upper end structure of the military machine has failed miserably. Not only have they chosen the wrong strategy to achieve a definable victory for their nation, they chose one that has been disproportionately brutal for our forces while providing cover for the enemy and the population that has proven over and over again to be untrustworthy.

History has defined and will continue to define only a miniscule number of opportunities for a theater-wide application of the precepts of Counterinsurgency Doctrine to have been efficacious. Even a casual glance at the human terrain in either Iraq or Afghanistan, with Syria and Iran to possibly follow, should have given the critical thinker everything they needed to adequately keep COIN under lock and key in the vault of terrible ideas.

*** and ***

First of all, if someone can point me toward the ongoing, public record of support for America in either of these operations or the public record of Muslim denunciation of the actions of the “terrorist” or “radicalized” Muslim or Jihad as a war doctrine, Taqiyya as a deceptive practice with the intent of keeping the enemy off balance, please show me?

The clear evidence only suggests groups as defined by those who willingly strap on bombs and those who do not. Unfortunately, we know that from within the second group comes the financial and spiritual support for the first.

Suggesting you can parse these two and do harm to one while garnering support for said harm from the “moderates” simply misses the truth about religion – all religion!

*** and ***

We watch the wanton destruction of human life by the forces of Islam and the associated silence from the “moderates” every day. Is it the contention of those who submit to the “two Islams” vision that we should continue to assume the best of a people whose religion is belligerent to non-believers?

*** end quote ***

The First Sargent correctly imho distills the “problem” into the concept: “It not what we think, it’s what it is that counts.”

Their “moderates” support their “extremists”.

Any failure to recognize this fact in policy, strategy, or tactics dooms us to failure. And, failure, in this case, translates into dead human beings. Soldiers and civilians on both sides are lost due to the stupidity of our leadership. Or lack there of.

We need to get the girls and boys out of the fire zone until we figure it out.

U.S. Failed To Learn From Conquest of Philippines, Historian Says
April 16, 2011 posted by Veterans Today
Unintelligent Design
By Professor Michael Chesson

*** begin quote ***

David R. Kohler (a Navy special warfare officer) and James W. Wensyel’s (a retired U.S. Army officer) essay, “America’s First Southeast Asian War” (1990), explains that the U.S. plunged into a war that would see 200,000 American soldiers sent to the Pacific, with 125,000 actually serving in the Philippines, and suffering 7,000 casualties.

About 15,000 to 20,000 Filipino rebels were killed, along with more than 200,000 civilians, all too easily dismissed as what would today be called collateral damage. There were mounting atrocities on both sides. The Americans used various forms of torture, including water boarding, to interrogate captured rebels. Though a few officers were court-martialed for sanctioning torture, their punishment was light. Our generals adopted a fortified hamlet strategy, free fire zones, and destruction of crops in the countryside to deny the rebels food.

Aguinaldo’s guerrilla tactics dragged out the war and made it one of attrition. His men received no outside help, despite pleas to Japan, because the U. S. Navy blockaded the islands. Our troops, with some exceptions, were better armed, fed, and supplied. America won the war, but paid a terrible price, the worst part of which was that neither our military nor civilian leadership seemed to have learned anything about the challenges of jungle fighting against a resolute foe supported by the local population at the end of a logistical chain ten thousand miles long. The lessons were forgotten, to be relearned in Vietnam sixty years later.

LAS VEGAS — A woman died Saturday night after undergoing a medical procedure from two people who are now facing murder charges.

Police say the incident took place at a small office near east Charleston Boulevard and Palm Street. The victim, 42-year-old Elena Caro, arrived Saturday for a buttocks enhancement, but was pronounced dead at a hospital hours later.

So much for the vaunted Gooferment protection.

All the regulations, all the inspectors, and all the laws couldn’t save this poor woman from her own bad decision.

Now, I am sure, that everyone will “blame the victim”.

And, there is some blame for her in this incident.

But, shouldn’t we examine the system that enabled it to happen?

The Gooferment controlled by the AMA, Big Insurance, and Big Pharma, keeps prices high by restricting supply. So what are poor people, without insurance, without money, supposed to do?

Go to the “shade tree mechanics”. The back alley doctors. The con artists.

Could she have been fooled by the illusion of respectability?

And, what did the Gooferment do to prevent this from happening? I bet there were all sorts of tell taale warning signs. I bet various agencies have “inspectors” on the payroll “vigorously” “Inspecting”.

Deregulate healthcare and train the Sheeple to do their own “inspecting”!

US breast cancer drug decision ‘marks start of death panels’
America’s health watchdog is considering revoking its approval of the drug Avastin for use on women with advanced breast cancer, leading to accusations that it will mark the start of ‘death panel’ drug rationing.
By Nick Allen, in Los Angeles and Andrew Hough
Published: 10:07PM BST 16 Aug 2010

*** begin quote ***

Avastin, the world’s best selling cancer drug, is primarily used to treat colon cancer and was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2008 for use on women with breast cancer that has spread.

It costs $8,000 (£5,000) a month and is given to about 17,500 women in the US a year. The drug was initially approved after a study found that, by preventing blood flow to tumours, it extended the amount of time until the disease worsened by more than five months. However, two new studies have shown that the drug may not even extend life by an extra month.

*** end quote ***

Every one sneered at Sarah for “death panels”. However it appears she was right. It’s one thing if a patient decides to forego the drug. Even if it’s just that they don’t have the money. But, when politicians and bureaucrats make decisions based on money, it doubtful that this is in our best interests.

A British doctor, Dr Karen Woo, was among ten aid workers ambushed and shot dead by gunmen in a remote area of northern Afghanistan, it emerged today.

The body of Dr Woo, whose family came from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was found on Friday next to three bullet-riddled four-wheel drive vehicles.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, which also claimed the lives of six Americans, a German and two Afghan interpreters. The attack happened in the Kuran Wa Munjan district of Badakhshan province in Afghanistan.

It is understood that the victims were lined up, robbed and shot dead with AK-47 rifles. “Yesterday (Friday) at around 8am, one of our patrols confronted a group of foreigners. They were Christian missionaries and we killed them all,” said Zabihullah Mujahed, a spokesman for the Taliban.

Dr Woo was returning to Kabul after working in an eye clinic in the Nuristan province when her convoy was attacked. She had previously worked for private health care firm Bupa before she decided to do aid work in Afghanistan. Her parents and two brothers were too upset to comment on her death.

“An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.” Gandhi

I’d say a plague on their house. And, walk away.

I’m touched by the human suffering. But only the folks there can upset the apple cart.

Clearly, the Taliban don’t want any help. So we should pull back. And, if they stick there head up to hurt us, then we help them back to the stone age “dog eat dog prison” that they have created. That means no “diplomatic” trips to NYC, London, or Paris. No personal foreign bank accounts. They’re in a jail; that we don’t have to pay for.

And we can use the power of Marque and Reprisal! (Think of a “get out of jail free” card and a “dead or alive” wanted poster with “alive” crossed out.

“We, The People” have to direct our representatives to get the hell out of this mess and save some lives.

Although Anbar province took the brunt of today’s attacks, Baghdad and Mosul also saw a surge in violence. At least 40 Iraqis were killed and 109 more were wounded in those and a few other attacks. An American soldier died of unknown causes in Babel province as well. Meanwhile, the death toll in yesterday’s massive triple bombing in Basra rose to 43 dead; about 185 others were wounded.
