President Trump is Decisively Dealing With America’s Problems!

Pesident Trump is taking bold and LEGAL action to solve many of America’s long running problems in spite of a worthless Congress. Trump’s actions are forcing our self-centered and “do nothing” Congress to take legal action to deal with these things like they were supposed to do originally. In addition to Congress President Trump is also working against a totally dishonest Main Stream Media that is obsessed with helping destroy the Trump Presidency.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.  The recension gives Congress six months to solve the problem legally. With the clear understanding that Congress is going to have to negotiate with him or he will veto whatever they send to his desk.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally. Congress still has a short window to repeal and replace Obamacare with something that could actually work for the American people.

He signed an Executive Order directing the insurance regulatory agencies to remove any regulations that prevented people or groups from buying insurance across state lines. The order also directed the regulatory agencies to allow individuals to form groups, or join existing groups so they could buy insurance at lower group rates and to allow individuals to buy lower priced insurance plans that did not require people to buy coverage they did not need, like single males being required to buy coverage that had maternity benefits.

He refused to re-certify the ridiculous Iran Nuclear Deal. This effectively throws it back into Congress’ lap to try and make it better for America and the rest of the free world.

He and his Administration have dealt quickly and decisively with multiple disastrous hurricanes, multiple disastrous California wild fires and the worse mass murder in modern U.S. history.

He has met, and positively influenced, more world leaders in his first few months in office than Obama did in his eight years in office. Many world leaders are beginning to respect America again, and in many cases actually work with us to solve some of the world’s problems. This is happening in spite of the Democrat’s and RINO Republican’s rants to the contrary, the Main Stream Media’s obsession with dishonest reporting and fake news, and Obama “holdover’s” who are continuing their efforts to sabotage the Trump Presidency.

Nine months after President Trump was sworn in the ISIS capital of Raqqa was taken by a U.S. backed coalition of fighting forces!  It is amazing what is being accomplished with a change in the Commander in Chief, new battle tested military Commanders with the authority to make the decisions necessary to accomplish their objectives, and a change in the “Rules of Engagement”!

President Trump is accomplishing all this and more in spite of the fact that many of his chosen appointees, to various top positions in his administration, are being deliberately delayed by the Senate. This is another way that President Trump has exhibited his Senior Executive and Manager skills. He simply appointed qualified people to “acting positions” and watched the results to assure that they are doing the jobs well.

This is only a sample of what an amazing job President Trump is doing in spite of an unbelievable number of road blocks being constantly thrown out in front of him by the America hating “Never Trumpers”. This is a classic example of the difference between a highly qualified, skilled and successful MANAGER (President Trump) compared to an incompetent loser who constantly surrounds himself with incompetent sycophants and fails at everything (Obama). I wrote a detailed article about this in April and posted it here:  http://www.onlymakessense.com/business-management-101-trump-versus-obama-what-is-the-difference-between-successful-business-managers-and-incompetent-looser-managers/

 

 

A Total Disrespect for Authority and Open Hatred for America. How Did We Get to Such a Dark Place in America?

The Main Stream Media continues to “report” open displays of hatred for everything American. The most recent and visible examples of this were the over-paid professional athletes’ deliberate and disgusting disrespect for our flag and national anthem. One of the worst examples of this was the Baltimore Ravens refusing to stand up while our national anthem was playing before a game in England , and then they stood up to honor the playing of England’s national anthem, “God Save the Queen’!  This was a glaring example of how far the “America haters” are willing, and eager to go to show their hatred for everything American.

Based on my own life experiences I am really having a problem understanding how so many people in America openly hate America. From my earliest memories as a child I was taught that there were certain basic rules that I was expected to live by throughout my life. These basic rules were not complicated. They were:

  1. Respect the American flag and everything it stands for.
  2. Respect authority.

In addition to these two basic rules I was also taught that I was, “Blessed to be born in America”! Throughout my childhood and teen years I was reminded of this “blessing” on a periodic basis. The people that taught me this insisted that I understand that “being born in America” meant that I had unlimited opportunity to lead a happy and successful life and could overcome almost any obstacles that life placed in my path, if I really wanted to do that. Most over-paid professional athletics are perfect examples of being “blessed to be born in America”, but some of them are leading the anti-American protest?

Unfortunately there are a lot of people in America now who do not believe in the basic rules noted above, and do not believe that it is a “blessing to be born in America”. However, they do have a strong belief that they are somehow “entitled” to do as they please and be given anything they want with no negative consequences?

How did we did get to this “dark place in America” where so many people in America are willing, and in some cases eager to publicly display open hatred for everything American? It did not happen overnight. It has been building up for decades, became more visible during Obama’s eight years in office and then literally exploded onto the “national stage” during the last few months as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” reached epidemic proportions.

As I watched the “America haters” publicly attack everything American and flaunt it, it occurred to me that America is being viciously attacked from two directions. The primary attack is from the hard Left people who are obsessed with destroying America and making America become part of their “One World Order”. The second attack is coming from people in America who have become convinced that they are “entitled” and that “respect for authority” is an old and outdated principle that no longer has a place in America. The people in this second group are so obsessed with their belief that they are “entitled”, they are easily manipulated by the hard Left, ”new world order” America haters. That is why they are referred to by some people as “useful idiots”.

When Patriotic Americans stood up in November 2016 and elected Donald Trump as President of the United States of America the America haters and all the people in the “Washington Swamp” were literally shocked. They did not believe that anyone but their anointed one, Hillary could be elected. Clearly the “shock” has worn off now and the America haters have come together and are obsessed with one goal, destroy the Trump Presidency by ”any means necessary”. They are well aware that if the Trump Presidency survives their dreams of a “One world order” are finished or at least delayed indefinitely. Those of us who want America to survive must be vigilant and stand up for America as aggressively as the America haters are working to tear it down.

The America haters have good reason to be panicking. President Trump will never quit! He will drain the “Washington Cesspool” and “make America great again” if enough of us stand with him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antifa is Absolutely Not What They Claim to Be!

The Anti-Fascism movement has been in existence since the 1920’s in various forms. It originated as a loosely organized movement to fight the spread of Fascism in Europe.

Antifa is NOT actually true Anti-Fascism! Antifa is a well-organized and well-funded group with the expressed purpose of fighting against “White Supremacy”, which they claim is Fascist. But this is NOT WHAT Antifa is either! Antifa is a new and uniquely American group of professional (organized and paid) violent anarchist with one objective. That objective is to destroy America’s current, Constitutional Republic form of government so it can be replaced with a Fascist form of government and become part of the “New World Order”. ULTIMATELY ANTIFA  ITSELF IS AN ORGANIZED FASCIST GROUP!   

If you watch any video footage of Antifa “anti-rally” or “anti-protest” activity you will see that they show up in large numbers wearing mask and protective gear and carrying weapons. These weapons include clubs, bottles, balloons filled with urine and feces, and sling shots to use to launch projectiles, including the urine and feces projectiles, at the police and legal rally or protest participants.

The Antifa thugs were not only allowed to gain strength during the Obama Administration, they were allowed  and even encouraged to become openly violent with the knowledge that they would not be arrested or charged with any crimes regardless of what they did.

Of course the Left and the Main Stream Media are still screaming that everything bad is caused by the “Alt-Right” groups and their Conservative supporters. The Left and Main Stream Media rarely say anything negative about Antifa or any other violent hard left group.

The good news is that police departments, including Berkeley recently began to stand up to violent protesters, including Antifa. The police are actually forcing the violent protesters to disperse, making arrest and charging people with crimes. Some are being charged with felonies!  The people arrested are also being prosecuted, not simply being released to walk away!  Tim Kane’s son was recently found guilty of charges of public violence at a protest in Minnesota late last year.

More important, some of the “leaders” of previous violent protest have recently been arrested and charged with crimes. One example is the middle school teacher in Southern California that was one of the leaders in the violent Berkeley protest earlier this year. After the violent protest she went on shows like FOX NEWS’ Tucker Carlson show to loudly claim that she was within her rights and was fighting Fascism.

Here is another great example of the difference in how things were under the Obama Administration and how they are during the first months of the Trump Administration. Far Left college professors are actually losing their jobs for disgusting public statements supporting violence against Conservatives, Right Wing groups and police. Here is a recent example. Michael Issacson, a professor at a well-known college of Criminal Justice in New York actually went on Tucker Carlson’s show to claim that he was an original organizer of Antifa. He then tweeted this, “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teacher at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cop”.  Social media exploded with outrage against this professor’s tweet and he was immediately suspended.

It is unarguable that Antifa should be on the “Domestic Terrorist List” Congress asked the President to create in the resolution they passed on September 11 and 12 condemning all hate groups!

Things are not changing fast enough for most of us but they are changing for the good of America!

 

Part Two: Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Reached Epidemic Proportions!

The Anti Trump and America haters, including the Main Stream Media have become completely “unhinged”!

“Unhinged” defined by Merriam Webster:  upsetungluedespecially :  mentally deranged

Last week I wrote about how it is impossible to turn on the “news” or log into the internet without constantly seeing examples of “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (TDS). At that time I did not think it was possible for TDS to get any worse, but this week it has continued to rise to disgusting new levels! The MSM has moved even further away from “inaccurate reporting” to “publishing openly dishonest information”.

Here are a few new disgusting examples:

  • As Harvey moved onto land the MSM obsessed with statements like, “Trump is facing his first disaster that is not of his own making”. And, then of course the inevitable “blame it own Bush” and the grossly inaccurate discussions of how badly the Bush Administration mishandled Katrina. The facts are that it was NOT the Bush Administration that was to blame for the level of disaster that the victims of Katrina experienced. Yes, the Bush Administration could have done some things better, but the majority of the blame for the magnitude of Katrina’s disaster falls squarely on the shoulders of the Governor of Louisiana at the time, Kathleen Blanco and the Mayor of New Orleans at the time Ray Nagin. The Governor refused the Bush Administration’s initial offer of Federal assistance and the Mayor (and city council) did nothing to minimize the destruction and loss of life that resulted from the delay in accepting Federal assistance. As usual the MSM still refuses to acknowledge the incompetence and gross negligence exhibited by the governor and mayor and is still focusing on President Bush’s low level fly over to see the destruction himself without landing. Landing would have interfered with other air traffic that was delivering desperately needed supplies and support personnel and flying refugees out. On an added note Ray Nagin was re-elected and was subsequently charged (surprisingly by the Obama/Holder Department of Injustice) with 20 counts of corruption. He was convicted on all 20 counts and is now serving 10 years in a Federal prison.
  • President Trump is being vilified for pardoning Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Arpaio is 85 years old and has been in public service his entire adult life. He was charged with refusing to obey a judge’s order by the corrupt Obama/Holder Department of Injustice. Federal prosecutors spent years trying to convict the Sheriff before they finally got a conviction in a non- jury trial. If he had been tried in a jury trial it is unlikely that he would have been convicted, and his conviction would most likely have been overturned on appeal. In spite of the facts the MSM chooses to see the pardon as racism. For example an Arizona Newspaper Editorial said, “Joe Arpaio Pardon Shows Institutional Racism Is Trump’s Goal”! As usual the MSM is focusing on this one pardon while totally ignoring the facts that Obama pardoned more hardened criminals than all modern day presidents combined (including Bill Clinton), and traded five terrorist from Gitmo for a known traitor, Bo Bergdahl.
  • The Berkeley police stood down again and allowed Antifa thugs to physically attack a small group of people trying to participate in a peaceful free speech rally. The police chief issued a statement that, “the police were ordered to stand down after counter protesters breached police lines to avoid escalating the violence”. REALLY!!!!!! It still amazes me that the Trump haters and the MSM still refuse to acknowledge that Antifa, BLM and several other destructive far left groups are responsible for any of the daily violence we are seeing in America now!
  • With everything that is happening in America and the world (especially North Korea) the MSM spent part of two days criticizing the First Lady for wearing heels as she boarded the plane this week to accompany the President on his first trip to Texas.

On a positive note I believe we are seeing the greatest response to a major disaster in our history on every level, federal, state, local and thousands of volunteers. But I have not heard a single anti Trump, America hater or member of the MSM acknowledge that?

You can find all my articles on this and similar topics here on my website.

Obama and the Democrat’s Legacy After Obama’s Eight Years in the White House!

This is obviously not a complete list of America’s current problems but it is indicative of the depth of problems America is facing after eight years of Democratic control of the White House:

The absolute destruction of the American healthcare system, to the point it may be unsalvageable. The new Democratic proposal to fix it is to replace it with a “single payer” healthcare system. If you want to know how a “single payer” healthcare system works take a look our VA healthcare system and the recent baby Gard case in England. Instituting a “single payer” healthcare system would require a huge expansion of our Federal Government bureaucracy, which would create another massive “transfer of power” to the “Washington Cesspool”.

The final transition of the Democratic Party to an anti-American Socialist party being led by self-centered ego maniacs who refuse to acknowledge what happened to their party in recent elections (they now have less Democrats in elected state and national positions than they have had in almost 100 years). And they continue to obsess with overturning the November 2016 election and putting Hillary and Kaine in the White House!

A totally corrupt, anti-American and dysfunctional Democratic National Committee.

The final death throes of American media that actually reported news. We now have a Main Stream Media (MSM) that loudly obsesses with “fake news” based on un-named sources or obviously fabricated lies. These are recent examples of what we get from the MSM:

  • A widely circulated article that claimed General Kelly called Comey and threatened to resign his position as head of Homeland Security because of Comey’s firing. If you look at any of General Kelly’s long career you will see that he would NEVER take any action like this. This “article” was allegedly based on two un-named sources.
  • CNN host Fareed Zakaria did an on camera analysis of the 2016 Presidential election that can only be described as arrogant and elitist. He actually said that Trump was elected by angry, white, blue collar men who were opposed to the growing influence of women and people of color in American politics!
  • A report that Donald Jr’s written description of his meeting with the Russians last year was dictated by President Trump, while he was on Air Force One returning from one of his international trips, and was fabricated to take attention off of the “Russian Investigations”. This report was allegedly based on a leak from inside Air Force One.
  • Maxine Waters’ endless media exposure to demand that President Trump be impeached.
  • Barbara Lee gets national media coverage of her claim that, “Trump is militarizing the White House with his appointment of General Kelly as White House Chief of Staff and this is putting America at risk”.

International threats to America are at the highest point in American history:

  • More countries are becoming nuclear powers and some are openly threatening to attack America. The most notable are Iran and North Korea.
  • Putin is openly obsessed with restoring the Soviet Union and becoming the most powerful and influential head of state in the world, by any means necessary.
  • The entire Middle East continues to become more unstable with no reasonable solution to improve the situation.
  • Venezuela is descending into total chaos and many Central and South American countries appear to be poised to have their own internal problems due to government corruption and growing gang and drug cartel violence. This will cause total chaos on our southern border.

Several states and many major cities in America are openly defying the rule of law regarding illegal immigrants in exchange for votes and cheap labor.

The US legal immigration system is an engine for graft (dirty money) and corruption.

Various Federal judges are openly defying the rule of law in America and “legislating from the bench”.

We have what can only be described as an unsolvable US debt crisis.

The biggest expansion of entitlement programs in US history.

A dramatic increase in the number of children growing up in broken homes in America.

A dramatic increase in the number of people in America who are unemployable.

A population that is so fragmented that practically no level of Government can function properly.

A dramatic increase in the number of young people in America who feel “entitled” and have no respect for authority.

Opioid addiction crisis in many states.

A dramatic increase in violent gangs in America, including MS13.

A Washington bureaucracy that prefers to destroy America rather than have the “Cesspool” they live in drained!

“Washington Cesspool” – Democrats, RINO Republicans, self-appointed    members of the “Washington Elite”, Washington career bureaucrats,          Federal Government employees, Lobbyist.

17 US intelligence agencies that are increasingly self-serving rather than putting America’s best interest first. Obama made this dramatically worse during his final months in office by unilaterally changing various government rules relating to agency sharing of information (unmasking of Americans).

A Pentagon immigrant recruitment program that had to be suspended when it became obvious that it had been “infiltrated” with immigrants that had been poorly vetted and did not meet the program’s requirements. Some of the immigrants working in the program have “disappeared” (are unaccounted for and are assumed to be somewhere in America).

An overall level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and in many cases treason in every Obama Administration agency and department. This level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and treason never existed in any previous President’s Administration. This was especially true in the IRS, FEC, BATF and DOJ. Some examples of this are Benghazi, ”Fast and Furious”, “Operation Choke Point”, the illegal withholding, destruction of and altering of subpoenaed records, contempt of Congress, an endless stream of new Government regulations issued by bureaucrats and Presidential executive orders without Congressional input……  And many “Obama holdovers” are still in their government positions today doing everything they can to bring down the Trump Presidency!

You can find detailed articles about everything I have listed here and more similar topics here on my website.

 

 

 

Washington is Not a Swamp. It is a Cesspool!

Merriam Webster definitions of cesspool:

  1. an underground reservoir for liquid waste (such as household sewage)
  2. a filthy, evil, corrupt place or state (a cesspool of corruption)

Here is a tiny sample of Washington’s “filthy, evil, corruption”:

The first chapter of Eric Bolling’s new book, “The Swamp” begins with a detailed description of Senator Ted Kennedy’s callous indifference to killing Mary Jo Kopechne in what seems to me to be a clear case of aggravated manslaughter. While she was dying trapped in the submerged car, in a small pocket of air, he was being consumed with trying to figure out how to prevent this from interfering with his plans to be President! If you look at the facts in the case she most likely could have been saved had he alerted authorities immediately!  Even after this he was repeatedly re-elected to the Senate until his death 40 years later, and was considered to be a superstar to all liberals. He was even given a “state funeral” as if he was President when he died!

Also in the first chapter of the book, “The Swamp”:  “the police reporting site, Capitol Hill Blue, did a study of then-current Congress members arrest records and reported that twenty nine had been accused of spousal abuse, seven had been arrested for fraud, nineteen had been accused of writing bad checks, one hundred and seventeen had bankrupted at least two businesses, three had been arrested for assault, seventy one were unable to qualify for credit cards, and eight had been arrested for shoplifting.  Another Capitol Hill Blue survey found that in 1998 alone 84 of 535 members of Congress had been stopped for drunk driving. But in all cases they were released by the loyal United States Capitol Police after claiming congressional immunity”!!!

Sharyl Attkisson’s new book, “Smear’ is another, long and detailed, book about the astonishing level of corruption that exists in Washington today, and has existed for decades! One example of unbelievable corruption,  that she details, is that there are Congressional staffers, whose salaries and expense accounts are paid with tax payer dollars, whose sole duties are to dig up dirt on the opposition, or create it, and then share it with friendly Main Stream Media people who will eagerly publish it as “news”! As noted above this is a long and detailed book that is well worth the effort to read it. And if you really want to fully appreciate this book I strongly suggest you read her first book, “Stonewalled” before you read “Smear”. It is a horrifying description of how traitorous the Washington Cesspool really is, including various government agencies and the Main Stream Media.

Maxine Waters lives in a high end gated community in California, which is not in her district, and has a residence in Washington. How does she do this on $175,000 per year? She does it by doing whatever she wants to do with tax payer dollars, like illegally using bank bailout funds to save a California bank her husband had stock in and was also a paid member of the bank’s board of directors. This was clearly a federal crime that the bi-partisan Congressional Ethics Commission spent over a million dollars investigating but could not agree on any recommendations for action against her! This is why some Republicans tried to pass legislation earlier this year to eliminate this expensive “sham” commission, but they were loudly shouted down by Democrats and RINO Republicans who want to keep this “sham” commission so they can continue to “whitewash” any potential investigations of Congressional wrong doing they want to cover up.

Shelia Jackson Lee, like Maxine Waters and many other members of the House of Representatives, remains in Congress solely because her district lines were deliberately drawn to guarantee that. I watched her being interviewed by Neil Cavuto earlier this week and she was furious that he dared to question her public declaration that she would not vote for ANYTHING that the Republicans wanted to do, especially if Trump wanted it! Another bit of her history that is “revealing” about the level of corruption in Washington is about the voter registrations in her district. Several years ago a non-partisan voter integrity organization began a study of the registered voters in her district. They began by researching the registered Democrats in her district where five or more had the same address, and then moved on to four or more with the same address. What they found was that many of the multiple registered voter addresses did not exist, or were not residential addresses or could not possible be reasonable living quarters for multiple adults. No surprise that this non-partisan voter integrity organization was one of the groups that was targeted, and then shut down  by Obama’s criminal IRS and Department of Injustice.

Recently I saw a collection of video footage of Chuck Schumer where he was speaking on the floor of the Senate in the past and since President Trump was elected……This could not be the same person, but it is!

Nancy Pelosi. Do I really need to elaborate on this deranged person?

John Lewis is continues to play off of what he did over 50 years ago, while living a life of luxury with an expensive Washington townhouse, on his $175,000 a year Congressional Salary?

John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chair, and former partner in an international consulting firm that did work for foreign governments and foreign business entities, was called to testify before a closed door Congressional committee. When he exited the hearing he gave an impromptu press conference and talked about what he was asked and his answers. He lied about this so blatantly that the committee chair person immediately called him out publicly!

Insider leaks from people in Congress and Obama holdovers are literally doing criminal damage to America, with eager help from the Main Stream Media. In some cases testimony from closed door Congressional hearings has been leaked before the hearing was over!

Trained and paid protest organizers are organizing, and in some cases paying, protesters to attack every Republican appearance in their district or state! The same is not true for Democrats!  

Recent surveys, by somewhat reputable survey organizations, show noticeable increases in the percent of Democrats who openly say that they ARE NOT PROUD TO BE AMERICAN!

You will not hear anything about any of this from the Main Stream Media.

Clearly the Washington Cesspool is a huge financial criminal organization that the Democrats and RINO Republicans suddenly see as being threatened by the Trump Administration and the few actual Conservatives in Washington. The Democrats and RINO Republicans are so desperate to save the Cesspool they will do anything to save it. What is even more astonishing about all this is that these people have NO FEAR of any repercussions for their actions! If Washington’s history is any indication of what to expect they seem to be justified in their lack of fear of any repercussions regardless of what they do. Time will tell if this is still true. My money is on the Trump Administration.

 

 

 

Waste, Fraud and Corruption. A Glaring Example of Misuse of Taxpayer Dollars, Planned Parenthood.

This is not a pro or anti abortion article. As the title says it is about blatant misuse of taxpayer dollars and the Democrats and RINO Republicans who enable it. It will be one of the shortest articles I have published and will include links to articles with more details because the facts speak for themselves.

Facts:

Planned Parenthood donated $734,000 to the recent failed Jon Ossoff campaign for Congress in Georgia. They were the second largest contributor to his campaign, second only to the Democratic Congressional Election Committee.  http://truthfeed.com/planned-parenthood-donated-734000-to-failed-georgia-election/84123/

It is important to note that none of the Main Stream Media has even acknowledged Planned Parenthood’s involvement in that election.

Spending huge amounts of money on political campaigns is “standard operating procedure” for Planned Parenthood, their subsidiaries and their executives. They have a long history of heavy donations to liberal Democrats and liberal organizations. Some reports indicate that they donated as much as $20 million to Hillary’s recent failed Presidential campaign. Planned Parenthood and their subsidiaries are a mixture of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations. 501(c))(4) tax exempt organizations are allowed to be politically active. http://freebeacon.com/politics/planned-parenthood-pours-cash-to-clinton/

Recently I published a detailed article about Obama’s criminal IRS rushing to hand out tax exempt status to groups who shared their America hating Ideology. You can read the article here: http://www.onlymakessense.com/obamas-organizing-for-action-relaunches-its-efforts-to-fundamentally-change-america-and-they-may-succeed/

The CEO of Planned parenthood, Cecile Richards’ annual salary in 2014 was $590,000 dollars. I am sure it has increased every year since. In addition there are numerous other executives at Planned Parenthood, and their various subsidiary organizations with six figure annual salaries (some of them almost) as much as Cecile.  http://www.lifenews.com/2015/07/01/planned-parenthood-president-cecile-richards-makes-590000-aborting-babies-for-a-living/

In addition to their bloated incomes the staff at Planned Parenthood, and it subsidiaries have fat benefit packages and excessive travel and expense accounts including travel on private jets.

Government funding for Planned Parenthood this year was $540.6 million. Over the last ten years it was over $4.3 billion.  http://www.foxnews.com/tax-calculator/2015/07/24/government-funding-planned-parenthood-10-years

Republicans in the House defunded Planned Parenthood last year but Democrats and RINO Republicans insisted on putting the funding back in the budget. A Democrat had the gall to say that the $500 million was not really significant in the overall Federal budget, and RINO Republicans had the gall to agree with this statement!

Merriam Webster:

Gall: brazen boldness coupled with impudent assurance and insolence.

Cecile Richards is the daughter of Ann Richards, a career hard Left Texas Democrat. As the old saying goes, “the apple did not fall far from the tree”.

As I have written in a number of my recent articles I hope the Democrats and RINO Republicans keep doing what they are doing. If they do it will assure that many of them will be replaced with Conservative Patriots in 2018, 2020, and 2022, and that President Trump will be re-elected in 2020 and replaced with a Conservative Patriot in 2024 (Mike Pence?).

The Deliberate Destruction of the “Moral Fiber” of America is Now at Crisis Level!

Moral: of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior

Fiber: essential structure or character – the very fiber of a person’s being

Over the last few years I have become increasingly dismayed at some of the things I continually hear and see happening in America. As I watched the Democrats, RINO Republicans and Main Stream Media (MSM) over the last few days I noticed they all have one thing in common, a total lack of MORALITY!  If you really think about it, everything they do can be viewed as a deliberate attack on the “moral fiber” of our American way of life. Whether this is a specific “Liberal” plan or not, this is how they are steadily achieving their goal of maintaining the status quo in Washington, D.C .For them the “Swamp” must remain in place for their personal pleasure and enrichment. And too many people in America have become part of their plan! Politicians of all stripes, PARENTS, college and school administrators, school teachers, and professors are, wittingly or unwittingly, steadily helping the Liberals destroy the “moral fiber“ of America.

Here are a few examples of the increasing lack of morality in America:

The Democrats are obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency, and the RINO Republicans and MSM are helping them. They are all obviously willing to say and do anything imaginable, even immoral to accomplish that objective.

Politicians from all parties are proving to be Academy Award winning level actors including two RINO’s I once had some level of faith in, Rubio and Kasich. These two RINO’s, and others, showed their true colors when they lost the Republican primary to Trump. They stood on the debate stage, on camera and took the oath to support the winning candidate whoever it was, and then immediately refused to honor that oath as soon as they lost!

Many of our school systems are allowing hard Left radicals to continue to teach (indoctrinate) students and they are graduating students who can barely read or write (political correctness). In some instances grade school teachers are openly participating in violent protest, radical rallies and “acting out” in the class rooms and are still “teaching”.

Our colleges and universities are overwhelmingly being run by hard Left radicals and staffed by hard Left professors. In many cases radical student groups have literally “occupied” the schools and are openly organizing disruptive activities. Even schools like Notre Dame are beginning to experience this outrageous behavior.

One of the most influential groups of people contributing to the decaying morality in America is PARENTS”! Some parents joined in with the students who walked out of the recent Notre Dame Graduation ceremony when V. P. Mike Pence began to speak.

The Democratic National Committee has become one of the most corrupt and crude organizations in the history of America. Openly rigging the primary for Hillary and then electing a new chairman with a very dirty history who is traveling around America giving profanity laced speeches.

At the California State Democratic Convention the election of the new chair person was so contentious that the runner up refused to concede and has hired lawyers to sue the organization. Also during the convention the attendees performed one of the crudest acts I have ever seen an organization like this do publicly. A poorly dressed man standing at the speaker podium looked at the people standing around him on the packed stage, smiled, leaned into the microphone, and said “Trump”. Instantly everyone in camera view raised BOTH hands in a “middle finger salute” with a big smile on their faces! Yes, this was on the stage at the California State Democratic Party Convention!

As noted earlier the Democrats, RINO Republicans, and MSM are totally lacking in MORALITY and are totally obsessed with maintaining the status quo in Washington, no matter what the cost to America is!

What can we do about this “crisis”? Like we did in November 2016, we must stand up and make our voices heard. Insist on term limits and refuse to support politicians, organizations or media outlets that are dishonest and UN-American. Let President Trump know we support his Administration ANY WAY HE NEEDS US TO!

I have written a number of detailed articles about everything I have touched on here and a variety of other similar topics. You can find them all here on my website.

 

 

Washington is Rotten to Core! Shut it DOWN October 1!

Congress, and consequently the entire Federal Government, has been increasingly dysfunctional for decades. Unfortunately eight years of the Obama Administration took the level of dysfunction to a “point of no return”. Democrats and RINO Republicans (Republican in name only) are equally at fault.

It is obvious that the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) are already painting a bright target on the chest and back of every Republican that is up for re-election in the mid-term elections in 2018.  What the President and Republicans do, or do not do between now and November 2018, will not change that.

I have written a number of articles where I said that the Democrats get up every morning with a daily message waiting for them with the specific Democrat Party talking points and marching orders for the day, and the Democrats all stick to those talking points and marching orders no matter what happens. The opposite is true for the Republicans. Some Republicans are actually trying to listen to their constituents and the rest (RINOs) are playing the “Washington Game” (how do I stay in office and how do I get more rich while I am here).

Elected members of Congress alone are not the entire “Washington problem”. Many people appointed to positions of power are also part of the “Washington problem”. Federal Judges who “legislate from the bench” and people like Jim Comey who use their position to assure that they continue to be an integral part of what they see as the “Washington Elite”. The Democrat’s comments and Comey’s testimony during the Congressional hearings on Wednesday, May 3rd were a perfect example of what is happening in Washington now. I watched part of the hearing while eating lunch and got so upset that I had to turn the TV off! One example of how ridiculous some of the things Comey said was his explanation of why Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Wiener were not prosecuted for mishandling classified documents. Comey said that the FBI had no way of knowing if Weiner read any of the classified documents Huma sent to the unsecured computer that she shared with Weiner. It was his (Comey’s) understanding that all Weiner did regarding the shared classified documents was “to print them for Huma”. Yes, Comey actually said that, as absurd as it was. He did the same regarding questions about Hillary and the rest of her staff’s mishandling of classified documents. He said that he did not believe the FBI could prove “intent” in the mishandling of classified documents!  REALLY!!! If Comey had even an ounce of integrity in his body he would have resigned and held a public press conference explaining why he resigned when he was ordered by Obama, through Loretta Lynch, to NOT attempt to build a prosecutable case against Hillary or any of her staff. UPDATE: JIM COMEY, FIRED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP, MAY 9, 2017. DRAINING THE SWAMP!

Two more perfect examples of the “Washington problem” are Tim Kaine and Bernie Sanders. I have written about the actions of these two before but it is important to keep people aware of the fact that they, and other people like them, are openly inciting violent anarchy in America! Senator, and VP candidate Tim Kaine recently stood before TV cameras and said, “Democrats must be willing to fight Republicans in the streets”.  Senator and recent Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders just completed a 10 day speaking tour around America calling for a “revolution”. This from a 75 year old declared Socialist who has never had a job in the private sector except for being a “community organizer”. He has spent almost all of his adult life in politics on a local and national level, and gotten very rich along the way!  I have a simple question for Kaine, Sanders, and all their supporters. Do you really want to start a revolution in America and “fight Republicans in the street”? I, and I am sure millions of other Americans like me, really do not think that you do!

It is inarguable that Congress does not remotely resemble what our Founding Fathers planned for it to be. The Founding Fathers believed that elected officials should serve America out of a sense of patriotism. They should go to Washington, do their job and then go back home to their family and personal businesses. THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL CAREER POLITICIANS!  ESPECIALLY NOT POLITICIANS THAT PROMOTE VIOLENCE!

Why did I say in the title of this article, “SHUT IT DOWN October 1”?  Because I am now convinced that shutting the Federal Government down is the only way to begin to fix it (other than an actual revolution).

There are two points regarding a Federal Government shut down that are important to know:

  1. Critical services continue to function during a shut down. Anyone who says things like old people will not get their social security checks if we shut the government down is an absolute liar!
  2. Government employees are still paid when they are not working due to a shut down! This should not happen!

President Trump, please do not agree to anything Congress proposes that does not meet the mandate you were sent to Washington to do. Shut the Federal Government down October 1, 2017 and keep it shut down as long as necessary to force needed changes (no more Federal budget “continuing resolutions”). Use your “phone and pen” to conduct Washington’s business until you are convinced that Congress may be willing to actually do what it is supposed to do. Direct your Cabinet Secretaries to cut their departments like you proposed for them to do, not what Congress wants. Stop trying to “fix” Obamacare. Let it collapse and then replace it. INSIST on a Constitutional Amendment establishing TERM LIMITS for all members of the U.S. Congress and Senate! And please keep tweeting regardless of who suggest that you stop. You are communicating directly with Americans and not allowing the corrupt, deranged Main Stream Media to “filter” what you say! I am absolutely convinced that there are enough people in America now who have “had enough of the Washington problem” and will fully support you ANY WAY THAT IS NEEDED to fix the “Washington problem”.

How do the Democrats Continue to be So Wrong About EVERYTHING?

Immigration, sanctuary cities, counties, states, President Trump’s choices for Cabinet Secretary and other appointed Federal Government positions and a constant message of hate and destruction are just a sample of how wrong they are on “everything”!

Immigration:

There are two “immigration problems” in America, legal and illegal. Illegal immigration into the US happens two ways. One is legal immigrants who become illegal when they overstay their visa or do not use their visa for the purpose it was issued. One example is people who come here on a student visa but instead take jobs from Americans, usually at lower wages than would be paid to an American. In fact legal immigration has become so corrupt and mismanaged that some experts on the subject believe that the majority of the illegal immigrants in America originally came here legally. I am confident that the Trump Administration will FIX this problem!

The “legal immigration problem” is just as bad (or worse) for the American middle class as illegal immigration is. Our corrupt government system is letting the wrong people in and keeping the people we need out, This is done systematically to satisfy big money donors like Google, Face Book and other companies like them who want to replace high tech American workers with foreign workers who work for a lot less than the Americans they replace, and are NOT provided with company benefits like assistance with health insurance or retirement plans. These companies spend millions of dollars annually on campaign contributions, lobbyist and public relations campaigns insisting they need more visas for high tech workers, “to be competitive on the world market which benefits all Americans”. Meanwhile the labor that is desperately needed to harvest crops, and consequently keep food cost down for everyone in America that is struggling to put food on the table, are systematically passed over for work visas in favor of the high tech workers noted above. I am confident that the Trump Administration will FIX this problem!

Sanctuary cities, counties, states:

The “sanctuary” concept began with some cities choosing to function as “sanctuaries” for what they referred to as “undocumented immigrants”. Now we have cities, counties and states that have formally declared they are “undocumented immigrant sanctuaries”, all run by Democrats of course. The “leaders” of these sanctuaries actually stand before local and national TV cameras and indignantly declare that being a declared “sanctuary” actually makes their residents safer!  Here are two well documented, heart breaking cases that prove otherwise:

Kate Steinle was killed in a random act of violence while standing on a pier overlooking the San Francisco bay with her father. Her father held her while she died begging him to help her. She was pregnant with her first child. Her murderer was Francisco Lopez Sanchez. He had been deported five times and had numerous drug convictions. He had recently been released from Federal prison to Customs Enforcement who then turned him over to the San Francisco County Sheriff Department. Instead of holding him for deportation the Sheriff Department released him. He randomly gunned Kate down with a stolen gun while high on drugs.

Edwin Ramos was an illegal from El Salvador and member of the violent Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang. He had a long criminal record (including felony weapons charges). In June 2008 in what can only be described as an act of unprovoked violence he murdered Tony Bologna and his two sons while they were sitting in their car at a traffic light in San Francisco. It is important to note that this was an MS13 gang member and it happened in 2008.  Based on AG Sessions’ and DHS head Kelly’s recent press conferences MS13 activity is now approaching national emergency status.

The truth is that the real reason Democrats support sanctuary areas is for illegal votes and cheap labor. In some cases they do not even try and deny the “voter issue”. In New York City, California and a growing list of other places illegals are actually issued driver’s licenses, which they can use to vote by simply declaring that they are a U.S. citizen at the polls. In some places people who are issued driver’s licenses are automatically registered to vote. Many Democrats deny illegals are voting but it has been documented in some places and Obama actually encouraged it when he was campaigning for Hillary. In some cases people who are issued visas to come here legally are automatically given a pathway to citizenship for themselves and their family members. Do you want to bet on which party all these people vote for?

As I have written in the past it is obvious that Democrats all get out of bed every morning with an e-mail, text or phone message providing their talking points and “marching orders” for the day. President Trump’s choices for Cabinet Secretary and other Federal Government leadership positions are a constant target of the Democrat’s disgusting talking points. The Democrats regularly stand before local and national TV cameras and talk about how “Trump is expanding the swamp, not draining it by filling so many positions in his administration with Wall Street Fat Cats”.  In fact the opposite of the Democrat talking points is true. The Trump Administration has the most qualified, accomplished and patriotic Cabinet Secretaries and Department Heads I have seen during all the decades I have been following national politics. None of the Trump appointments needed the job and some publicly said they did not want it! They were personally asked to serve in order to help “make America great again”, and stepped up to help do that at great personal expense to themselves and their families.

And my final points in this article are about the absolutely disgusting Democratic Party “leadership”. Here are four specific examples of Democratic leaders who are text book examples of people who are “deranged”:

Senator Warren, who is already openly ramping up her 2020 Presidential run, changed her personnel records when she was a law school professor to indicate that she was 1/64 Cherokee to get minority status. The claim was publicly rejected by the leadership of the Cherokee Nation and certified genealogist. Her public explanation for doing that was embarrassing, and totally ignored by the MSM (Main Stream Media). She and her husband bought distressed properties during the housing crisis and resold them at a profit (a practice she has publicly ranted against President Trump for doing).

Senator Sanders, an avowed Socialist, just finished a 10 day speaking tour promoting an American revolution. This from a man who has never accomplished anything other than getting elected to various public offices in an extremely Liberal state, and getting rich along the way (he now owns three homes. Two of them are expensive vacation homes)!

And next let’s look at Tom Perez. He is the newly elected head of the Democrat National Committee (DNC). At one point in his professional career he was the President of a radical communist group funded by George Soros and Hugo Chavez. The rest of his entire professional career has been spent frantically working (in Democrat Administrations) at destroying America. How this guy has managed to remain “under the radar” for so long is astonishing to me?  He is, by any definition, a seditionist at best and a traitor at worst. He is an anti-white people, racist communist, who was appointed to powerful positions in the Clinton and Obama Administrations. In these positions he did things like sue the city of Jacksonville, Fl. because black fire fighter applicants got lower scores on application test then white applicants, had his own Hillary like illegal e-mail set up while he was Obama’s Secretary of Labor, supports complete amnesty for Illegals, and a long list of other radical anti-American positions. He is now on a long profanity laced speaking tour promoting everything anti-trump and anti-America. His first act after getting elected DNC Chair was to appoint Keith Ellison, his main opponent in the Chairman race as his assistant.

Keith Ellison is an avowed Muslim Congressman from Minnesota that took his oath of office on the Koran. He has a Muslim name, Keith Hakim that he used to publish articles while he was in college demanding that all white people pay all black people slave reparations. His extreme radical history includes trips to radical Muslim countries and membership in radical Muslim organizations.

I did not think it was possible but Perez and Ellison represent a Democrat Party leadership that is even more UN-American than Obama!

I have researched, written and published a number of detailed articles about everything I have touched on here. You can find all of my articles here on this website.

 

 

Trying to Reason With Liberals can be Challenging

As I researched, studied and wrote about where we are in politics in America today one thing kept coming back up in my thought process. It was how Liberals could be so irrational and unreasonable in their beliefs and their position on issues.  I actually had a lengthy discussion about this with some of the other “old guys” at my gym one morning, including a very liberal psychology professor. The consensus of opinion was that the reasoning portion of the brain simply does not work in people who are liberal.

The more I thought about this the more I began to believe that the “left brain, right brain” explanation that I wrote about earlier this year is too simplistic. There are too many different people who hold liberal views for this simple explanation to be valid. There are people from all races, backgrounds and professions who are Liberal. Many are very intelligent, highly educated and very successful in their chosen profession.

As I studied this subject and tried to figure out how to understand and interact with people who are Liberals, I noticed that they usually fall into one of five different groups:

  1. Liberals who are totally uninformed about facts regarding issues and do not have any interest in being informed.
  2. Liberals who think that they are informed when they are actually misinformed. This is because the people they usually associate with have deeply held liberal views which they constantly share with their friends.
  3. Liberals who acknowledge that Liberalism is not perfect but openly say that they prefer it over Conservatism. These people are different from the people in group “4”. They are much less demanding and personal agenda driven. Their mindset is more attuned to a “live and let live” lifestyle.

4.Liberals who simply want things to be the way they want it to be even if it is not logical or ethical. Unfortunately, too many of the young people in America today are in this group. There is no other way to explain how so many of them supported a professed Socialist for President or organized protests groups like Occupy or BLM.

  1. Liberals who are so agenda driven that they are deliberately working to make America be a Socialist/Communist country.

As I thought about how different Liberals can be in some ways, I also noticed that they do have some things in common:

Many of these Liberals had a bad life experience that shaped their views. Something like a failed business or personal relationship that they refuse to acknowledge was their fault.

Almost all Liberals are Fox News haters. They cannot tolerate any opinion about anything other their own.

Trying to reason with most Liberals can be challenging. Some will politely ignore you, some will question you and some will become angry and absolutely nasty in their responses to you.

I have actually tried to understand how some of these Liberals have the views that they do, and even tried to have a rational exchange of ideas/facts with some of them, with limited success

During some of my attempts to interact with various Liberals I noticed that some had to suspend all semblances of reason, ethics, and honesty to profess such strongly held liberal views. I cannot understand people who can do this and will simply avoid those that do in the future.

I do still believe that there are some people with liberal views that can be positively influenced, but based on my experiences in recent years I will “pick my battles” more carefully in the future. I ask all of my fellow conservatives and Libertarians to do the same. We cannot just give up and allow the Liberal base in America to continue to grow!

Updated December 1, 2016 – The Collapse of Obamacare Was Planned

I have heard people say that the collapse of Obamacare was pre-planned ever since its inception and implementation. However it was only in recent months that I became convinced that this is absolutely true! It is common knowledge that a long time dream of the liberal Left is to replace ALL healthcare in America with a single payer, Government run VA style healthcare program. When a “single payer healthcare system” is established there will NOT be any private healthcare providers or institutions left operating in America. That means that everybody in America will be forced into that single payer plan, including people currently enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, private insurance, and people who are currently uninsured.

However the Liberals knew that the increase in healthcare premiums and deductibles, for everybody every year since Obamacare was implemented, would not be enough to force everyone into a single payer healthcare system. So at the same time that Obamacare was implemented they implemented the second part of their carefully planned effort to take over healthcare in America. The second part of their plan is to increasingly deny healthcare to patients and increasingly reduce reimbursement to health care providers for services rendered (which will eventually force them out of business).

My conclusion that there is a twofold plan being executed to take over healthcare in America is based on my personal healthcare experiences in recent years, especially this year, plus conversations with friends and health care providers about their healthcare experiences since Obamacare was implemented, and now recent reports that Obamacare premiums will increase as much as 116% in some states January 1. Here are a few examples:

  • I was forced into Medicare when I turned 65 by my private healthcare coverage provider.
  • My Medicare premium, which is deducted from my Social Security check is being “means tested” What that means is that I am charged more than the basic monthly premium each month based on my and my wife’s annual income and it is going up another $40 each month on January 1 (our income has not increased?).
  • I chose to also pay for a second healthcare provider in addition to Medicare to assure I had full coverage. This second coverage provider has changed every year since I signed up for Medicare except this year. I am currently Medicare/United Health Care (UHC) with UHC being the secondary coverage and administrator for my coverage for both plans.
  • My wife’s health care provider has changed every year since Obamacare was implemented except one. She will be forced into Medicare with UHC as a secondary carrier when she turns 65 this month. She got a letter from Medicare yesterday informing her that both of our Medicare premiums will go up $12 a month this month because we file a joint tax return?
  • My wife and I lost our individual, $1,000, preventive care budget on January1 the year after Obamacare was implemented and our deductibles increased (we were not on Obamacare).
  • In September one of my healthcare providers tried to get approval for a critical back procedure for me over the phone. My insurance providers refused to approve it over the phone so I had to wait two weeks, in pain, for the procedure.
  • My health care coverage providers required me to have an extensive evaluation before they would approve any more treatments for my accelerating back problems. I say again, it was a required evaluation. Last week I got a letter from UHC informing me that they were declining to pay for the required extensive evaluation and I was responsible for the total cost of $912.
  • I was scheduled for a new MRI to evaluate my treatment options for my increasing levels of back and hip pain. My health care provider approved the procedure and it was scheduled. Two days after the MRI I got a letter from UHC informing me that the procedure was approved however “ This approval did not guarantee that the plan will pay for the service(s).”
  • Out of my total medical expenses this year (YTD June end) that were billed by my medical care providers (which have been considerable), my combined healthcare coverage paid a total reimbursement of 08% and I had to pay 01% including my up-front deductibles. Some charges were reimbursed at a slightly higher percent, others at a lower percent and some were reimbursed at “.00” %! Note, I just received my September YTD medical care summary and the total reimbursement for medical services billed dropped to .06% with my combined healthcare coverage providers only paying .05% with me being responsible for the other .01% including my upfront deductibles. There were more treatments and procedures reimbursed at .00% in the 3rd quarter than there was in the first six months of the year! Update, just got a notice that one of my healthcare providers filed an appeal and received additional reimbursement for some of my medical care but the total reimbursement is still significantly below what was billed. And as a condition of accepting health care coverage reimbursements the healthcare providers cannot require the patient to pay more than their plan’s deductibles, or other charges their healthcare provider dictates (like the $912 example noted above). They are also requiring so much “red tape” that many healthcare providers cannot comply. Even if you consider some healthcare providers may be overbilling for certain services, no healthcare provider can stay in business with this level of reimbursement.  Especially when you consider the patients who cannot pay their upfront deductibles (I have witnessed this repeatedly while sitting in waiting rooms).
    • > My primary care Doctor sold his practice to the local hospital chain and left the profession.
    • > My eye Doctor stopped treating patients with any combination of Medicare insurance coverage so I have to pay him cash for my annual checkups.

As noted above I am now absolutely certain that the liberal Left is executing their carefully calculated plan to destroy America’s Healthcare system and replace it with their “dream single payer healthcare system”! It is also undeniable that a single payer healthcare system is the centerpiece for Socialism!

Note, the liberal Left referred to here is the Obama Administration since day 1 of his presidency and the Democrats in Congress since January 20, 2006 (when they had a veto proof majority during the last two years of President (43) Bush’s administration.

This election is our last chance to save our Republic!  I am repeating what I said last week. If you voted for Obama and still support Hillary, please look at history! No form of Communism/Socialism (no matter what it was called) has been successful since mankind began recording our history!

UPDATE NOVEMBER 28, 2016:

As noted above I have been “means tested” since I was forced into the Medicare program when I turned 65 in 2012. My Medicare premium has increased several times over the years even though my income has not increased? According to the Social Security Administration (SSA) the $40 increase noted above on January 1, 2017 is the result of the IRS notifying the SSA that I had TAX FREE income from tax free municipal bonds (I originally invested in them while I was still working years ago). My wife was forced into Medicare when she turned 65 this month (November).

In addition to the two recent SSA letters noted above regarding increases in our Medicare premiums since my wife was forced into the program, on November 25 we both got identical 4 page (printed on both sides) letters from the SSA explaining our Medicare monthly premium status and how it is calculated. The calculation process is referred to as “IRMAA” (income-related monthly adjustment amount).

According to these letters, based on our current joint IRMAA calculations both of our premiums will increase an additional $112.70 on January 1, 2017!

On January 1, 2017 we will be paying more for Medicare than we were paying for a family healthcare plan, that we were very satisfied with prior to me being forced into Medicare in 2012. That coverage was available to us through my wife’s employer provided group coverage plan (she was and still is working). Unfortunately the plan requires people on the plan to sign up for Medicare as their primary coverage when they turn 65.

For those of you who are still “in mourning” over the election, do you really want our healthcare system to continue down this path of destruction!

UPDATED DECEMBER 1, 2016

On November 21 I had an appointment at the spine center for a reevaluation of my options for treatment for my back problems. I had to pay a $95 co-pay since I was seeing a specialist. Based on my latest MRI and recommendation by my orthopedic surgeons (I have permanent, inoperable back problems that are accelerating), I was scheduled for a pain block injection procedure this morning, December 1. Tuesday afternoon the center called to confirm my appointment and that I was fully aware of the pre-procedure prep requirements, “nothing by mouth after midnight, etc”. Yesterday at 3:45 the center called again and informed me that my insurance, UHC/Medicare had informed then that the procedure was not approved and that I needed to come in this morning for another evaluation and  to provide more personal information! The additional information that was needed was information I have provided literally dozens of times already this year to all my medical care providers, including the Spine center every time I have been there this year, including during my appointment on November 21 (so it was already in my current and past records).

I paid another co-pay, answered the same questions again, watched the Doctor’s assistant verify that the information was already in my files (with a somewhat perplexed look on her face) and  was rescheduled for another procedure on December 19th.  So I will spend the next 18 days with Tens unit pads on my hips and lower back for 12 hours a day!

I am beginning to think I am being personally targeted……

 

Obamacare was Designed to Collapse so it Could be Replaced with Government Run Healthcare for Everyone
