  • Why Trump is courting Romney for the State Department

    American Thinker ^ | 11/29/2016 | Thomas Lifson
    All the brouhaha over the alleged rifts within the Trump transition over Mitt Romney misses the point. I think it is theatre, a distraction by the same man who was able to direct media attention where he wanted it all throughout the campaign. Donald Trump has a plan that eludes his critics, who can’t help thinking about politics the way it has always been played, and still do not grasp his thinking nor the range of new tools he brings to the presidency. The Department of State is badly broken and desperately needs to be fixed. State requires fundamental restructuring...

    Concern is growing over revelations that voting machines in a significant number of states will be controlled by a company tied directly to billionaire leftist George Soros and his personal quest to create a nationless, borderless global state. Smartmatic is providing machines to Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington, D.C., Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
  • Exclusive: Trump Camp Mulls Using Seized Cartel Assets to Pay for Wall

    To fund construction of a new U.S. border wall, Donald Trump and senior advisers are considering various ideas, including the use of assets seized from drug cartels and others in the illicit drug trade. As the debate over who will pay for the wall dominates the discussion on cable news, sources involved in the pre-planning of the GOP nominee’s Mexico trip told LifeZette the Trump camp is looking for innovative ways to pay for the construction of the border wall that both countries can support. Sensitivities in Mexico regarding Trump’s visit, and specifically paying for the border wall, are running...

    WND ^ | 8/2/16 | Paul Bremmer
    Paul Nehlen is just one of hundreds of candidates running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives this year, but the businessman and inventor is running as if he’s in a national race. In a way, he is. His Republican primary opponent, after all, is House Speaker Paul Ryan. And with the election scheduled for Aug. 9, national attention is intensifying as the campaign comes down to the wire. “It’s absolutely a national campaign,” Nehlen told WND. “Paul Ryan opposes 92 percent of the GOP electorate on immigration and seven out of 10 voters on the Muslim refugee...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Lots to do here on Open Line Friday, Rush Limbaugh. Determined to be in a good mood, folks. Determined to be happy. Determined to do everything I can to enjoy life. And if that makes some of you think I'm out of touch, so be it. I've been dealing with that complaint for 27 years. Over and over again I've heard that, "You're out of touch, Rush, you're losing touch with what it's like to really be in America." No, I'm not. Never have lost touch, never will lose touch. But it doesn't mean that you can't...
  • Doctors Disagree on Efficiency of Electronic Medical Records (video)

    COLUMBIA - Electronic medical records, or EMRs, have given some physicians joy and others nightmares. The federal government mandated all health care providers in the U.S. switch to EMRs by January 1, 2014. EMRs replaced the previous medical records systems done by hand on paper. The days of the 4-inch thick patient chart are over. "We knew it was coming, we knew we had to do it." said Tom Selva, chief medical officer at University Hospital. But University Hospital was always ahead of the game. It switched to an EMR provider 15 years ago when it started using Cerner, based...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I want you to imagine the federal government eliminating your private property rights due to the interpretation of political correctness by five people, or a very tiny minority of people. The tiny minority of people are ostensibly, they say, offended by something that you own. Imagine an agency of the federal government, without any proper adjudication before any sort of court, tribunal, or what have you, just comes along and, on their own whim, decides to eliminate your private property rights. Because of interpretation of political correctness, because they're liberals, because they're statists and authoritarians and assigned...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The NBC News/Washington Post poll. It is indeed very bad for Obama, but it's irrelevant. The poll means nothing to Obama. His presidency is not over. It's just getting started. I say this because Obama is operating unilaterally. He doesn't have to face voters anymore. The lame duck analogy doesn't apply to Obama. Mostly when a president reaches lame duck status, it's usually meant to be that he's powerless. But that doesn't apply here to Obama. His lame duck status simply means: The fact that he doesn't have to face the voters anymore means there's no reason...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I want to go back to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll for one little tidbit of additional information that was not imparted by F. Chuck Todd. However, it could be one of the reasons he's so despondent. Washington Examiner dug deep. "Hispanics Help Drive President Obama's Approval Rating to a Fresh Low." Hispanics. Now, remember, the conventional wisdom in Washington is the Republicans had better adopt the policies of the Democrats so that they get some Hispanic support so that they can win some elections again. And if they don't do that, it's sayonara -- or...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So I got in here today, and I got a flash e-mail: "Hey, Rush, I know you've got a ban on MSNBC, but F. Chuck Todd said that the Obama presidency is over. It's done. It's fini because of the latest NBC News/Washington Post poll." I'm sad to say that F. Chuck Todd is wrong. In fact, the correct way to look at the Obama administration is that it's just now getting started. It is in no way over. It is in no way crumbling. It may be in public opinion, but that doesn't matter. I will...

    With the situation in the Ukraine escalating and the US continuing to call for sanctions against RussiaÂ’s financial and political elite, Vladimir Putin is now not only mobilizing tens of thousands of troops on his Western front, but sending intercontinental strategic bombers across the Pacific Ocean. According to the US military, itÂ’s the first time since the cold war that RussiaÂ’s incursions have come this close to America. WhatÂ’s even more alarming is that Russia is making it clear that any attack on the Motherland would likely lead to widespread bombardment of western interests. Nuclear capable Russian bombers have been...

    It's time to defy health-care mandates issued by bureaucrats not in the healing profession. In my 23 years as a practicing physician, I've learned that the only thing that matters is the doctor-patient relationship. How we interact and treat our patients is the practice of medicine. I acknowledge that there is a problem with the rising cost of health care, but there is also a problem when the individual physician in the trenches does not have a voice in the debate and is being told what to do and how to do it. As a group, the nearly 880,000 licensed...

    No major injuries were reported after a magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck near Los Angeles last night. Beyond word of property damage, power outages, and general anxiety—there were dozens of reported aftershocks—moviegoers, especially those who saw the biblically-themed "Noah," were a little shaken up.
  • My turn: Just say no to ACOs (Say hello to Obamacare’s latest technocratic gimmick)

    Mountain Democrat ^ | February 26, 2014 | Sally Pipes
    Say hello to Obamacare’s latest technocratic gimmick — the Accountable Care Organization (ACO). The first of these federally-chartered Pioneer ACO groups of healthcare providers just recently launched. Proponents of ACOs claim that the new entities will help doctors and hospitals better coordinate care in order to improve the health of Medicare patients and reduce costs. Don’t count on it. Instead of helping doctors and patients to make individualized treatment decisions, ACOs will empower government bureaucrats to consolidate healthcare providers into top-down organizations and dictate how care is delivered — at greater cost. According to Obamacare’s supporters, ACOs will streamline communication...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 1/13/14 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
    Robert Laszewski—a prominent consultant to health insurance companies—recently wrote in a remarkably candid blog post that, while Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.” How can this be? Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them. The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers. For some reason, President Obama hasn’t talked about this particular feature of his signature legislation. Indeed, it’s bad enough that Obamacare is projected by...

    Harvard professor David Cutler, a so-called architect of Obamacare, says we "could be" witnessing "the beginning of a death spiral" for the unpopular health care bill. Cutler made the comments last night on Fox News: "So when you were on last week I asked you, if they don't get enough people in the exchanges, then what happens?" said host Megyn Kelly. "And you said then the premiums go up very, very high. Now, was that ball put in motion today?" "We don't know yet," said Cutler. "So what the president is trying to do is to say the website is...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) - The National Security Agency has been collecting the telephone records of millions of U.S. customers of Verizon under a top secret court order, according to a report in Britain's Guardian newspaper.</p> <p>The order was granted by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on April 25 and is good until July 19, the newspaper reported Wednesday. The order requires Verizon, one of the nation's largest telecommunications companies, on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries.</p>

    Reuters ^ | 3/13/13 | Emily Flitter and Stella Dawson and Mark Hosenball
    (Reuters) - The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters. The proposed plan represents a major step by U.S. intelligence agencies to spot and track down terrorist networks and crime syndicates by bringing together financial databanks, criminal records and military intelligence. The plan, which legal experts say is permissible under U.S. law, is nonetheless likely to trigger intense criticism from privacy advocates. Financial institutions that operate...

By the way, this is a challenge for me. The Democrats are talking about what a great era the Clinton era was.
