RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.  It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours.  Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction.  Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective.  But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.  That's all I promise.

THE STATE OF AMERICAN HEALTH CARE DELIVERY,

BEFORE AND WITH OBAMACARE

BY GEORGE A. SPRECACE, M.D., J.D.

DECEMBER 25, 2015

This analysis is offered by a physician with 59 years of practice experience, 53 of them in New London, Ct…and counting. These insights have been reported since the later 1970’s, on my web site (www.asthma-drsprecace.com) and elsewhere.  They are bottom-line, conclusory statements. If the reader seeks documentation…”look it up”.

HEALTH CARE CHRONIC PROBLEMS AND NEEDED REFORMS, IGNORED BY OBAMACARE.

  1. 50% OF ILLNESSES / DISEASES ARE LIFE-STYLE RELATED – AND AVOIDABLE.
  2. 20 – 30% OF Health Care costs involve “Defensive Medicine”, thanks to the medical mal-practice industry. “Go to the doctor and take a chance on striking it rich”.
  3. 80% of the elderly want an Advanced Directive, to “protect” themselves from their physicians and from their families. 20 – 30% of them actually have Advanced Directives.
  4. Half of all Medicare costs are incurred in the last 6 months of the patients’ lives.
  5. Drug costs…and the “insider trading” Medicare Act of 2002, wherein the Federal Government is prohibited from negotiating drug prices with the pharmaceutical companies!
  6. 20% of health care costs are physician charges.  80% are hospital charges.
  7. Before ObamaCare, no one was dying in the streets…except for the “homeless” who are largely the mentally ill who were thrown out of closing psychiatric hospitals beginning in the late 1960’s – with no alternative care as had been promised as a “quid-pro-quo”. And regarding the emergency room as provider of needed care for these patients: wrong time, wrong place, wrong providers…as recently attested by 80% of ER physicians nation-wide.
  8. ETC….
<>OBAMACARE: A CHRISTMAS TREE OF WANTS, WITH NO ATTENTION PAID TO NEEDED HEALTH CARE REFORMS.  A CYNICAL / POLITICAL EXERCISE IN VOTER RECRUITMENT.

All of the following Results are Bad and Worsening.

  1. “Increased coverage”, if you can find a physician, including your own existing physician.
  2. “Universal” health insurance coverage, and the Fine (aka “tax”), the illegal product of the “800 lb. gorilla” at the U.S. Supreme Court. “It sits where it wants to sit”.
  3. Uniform “Cadillac coverage”: not only the fancy plans, but also the expanded coverage for non-health related items.
  4. Mandated insurance coverage for “prior existing diseases or illnesses”…aka covering the house after it has burned down.
  5. Electronic Health Records… and penalties for non-compliance.
  6. 30 day readmission rules…and penalties.
  7. “Avoidable” infections…and penalties.
  8. “OBV” – prolonged “out-patient” hospital admissions…and penalties imposed on patient and hospitals.
  9. Taxing non-profit hospitals excessively…just “because” the State needs the money.
  10. All of this cumulatively imposes a “how high” mentality on hospitals and physicians alike when yet another disruptive “JUMP” comes down from the Government…instead of a proper “SEZ WHO?”.
  11. 11. Increasing cost transfers to the patients…mainly the working Middle Class: the new “Un-Insured”: delayed care, sicker, costlier care.
  12. The increasingly injurious effect on physicians, 50% of whom were recently reported to be at least partly depressed…and some to be suicidal.  Is that the physician you want to care for your increasingly complex needs?
THE FATE OF OBAMACARE, IF WE’RE LUCKY.

ANOTHER CONVERSATION ON "ISLAM".

GS


David,
thanks.  But by its precise terms, Islam is not only a Religion but also a foreign secular government...completely in control of its peoples' lives.  As such, and by its constant pronouncements regarding its primacy over any "non-believers", I see this Law as applicable to all Sharia - abiding Muslims.

PL 414 is 120 pages long, but I did a search for "islam" and "muslim", and those terms are not in PL 414.  This author is making a large and illogical leap that all muslims are out to destroy the US.

You can pull up PL 414 if you google Public Law 414.

ANGELA MERKEL: "CHANCELLOR OF THE FREE WORLD".
Also: "Time" Person of the Year.

Having had 5 years of German studies in school, and having spent 2 years (1960-62) in Germany with the U.S. Army Medical Corps, I continue to have a interest in that vital and at times benighted Nation.

And today we should all develop such an interest, since Germany has become central to the future of the Western World.  An excellent source for such a quick study is the fine and extended article on Chancellor Merkel published in the above-noted edition of Time Magazine (Dec. 21, 2015).

It turns out that here is not only a Leader, but a "mensch" - a real person whose entire life has been an ideal preparation for her decade guiding the German people from their past to their future - and guiding all of Europe at the same time. As demonstrated graphically in her stern handling of the "Euro Crisis" and now in her sympathetic approach to admitting 1 million refugees into her country, she is the epitome of a "can-do" person.  Or, as she puts it:
"Wir schaffen das", we can do this.

<>The lessons that can be learned by us in America from this experience are, however, not directly transferable.  On this subject, the article recently published in the NYTimes goes too far in criticizing America by contrast. ("Germany, Refugee Nation", by Roger Cohen, Tuesday Dec. 22, 2015, OP-ED, pA25).

I am no expert on the German Constitution. But I doubt that German leaders have as many hurdles involving personal freedoms that our leaders - even when capable - have to clear.  And I know that "the German people" are a far cry from the polyglot that is America, including its historic and continuing penchant for disobedience, civil or otherwise. 
In any case, this monograph on Chancellor Merkel is a very good read that puts many of today's world events in perspective.

The King's Meteorologist

    Once upon a time there was a king who wanted to go fishing. He called
the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the
next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain
in the coming days.

    So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a
farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, "Your Majesty,
you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I
expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area".

    The king was polite and considerate, he replied: "I hold the palace
meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced
professional.  And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very
different forecast. I trust him and I will continue on my way."  So he
continued on his way.

    However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky.  The
King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing
them in such a shameful condition.

     Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire
the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the
prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.

    The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
forecasting.  I obtain my information from my donkey.

    If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will
rain."

    So the king hired the donkey.

    And thus began the practice of electing dumb asses to work in the
government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.

    And the practice is unbroken to this day...

STRANGE.
As I was going to my car after shopping at CVS early this morning, I was hesitantly approached by a Black man.  He seemed in his 40's.  "Sir, could you please lend me a hand. I'm a veteran, I'm homeless, and I don't have any money for food.  The VA is going to help me tomorrow...but I've got to get through today". At that point he offered me his ID. He probably had noticed my Veterans license plate.  "Where did you serve?"
"In Okinawa in the late 1980's".

I gave him a $10. bill, shook his hands and thanked him for his service.

  T'WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,  HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
  IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE,
  MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE.

  I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY,
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE

  AND TO SEE JUST WHO,  IN THIS HOME,  DID LIVE.

  I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
  NO TINSEL,  NO PRESENTS,
  NOT EVEN A TREE.

  NO STOCKING BY MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
  ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES,
  OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.

  WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
  A SOBER THOUGHT,
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.

  FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
  I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER,
ONE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.

  THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
  SILENT,  ALONE,
  CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR,
 IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.

  THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN DISORDER,
  NOT HOW I PICTURED,
  A TRUE AMERICAN SOLDIER.

  WAS THIS THE HERO,  OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
  CURLED UP ON A PONCHO,
  THE FLOOR FOR A BED?

  I REALIZED THE FAMILIES, THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
  OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS,  WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.

  SOON ROUND THE WORLD,
THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
  AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE,  A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.

  THEY ALL ENJOYED  FREEDOM,
  EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
  BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS,  LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.

  I COULDN'T HELP WONDER,
HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
  ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE,
 IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.

  THE VERY THOUGHT BROUGHT
A TEAR TO MY EYE,
  I DROPPED TO MY KNEES,
  AND STARTED TO CRY.

  THE SOLDIER AWAKENED,
AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
  "SANTA DON'T CRY,
  THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;

  I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM,
I DON'T ASK FOR MORE,
  MY LIFE IS MY GOD,
  MY COUNTRY,  MY CORPS...

  THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER, AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
  I COULDN'T CONTROL IT,  I CONTINUED TO WEEP.

  I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS, SO SILENT AND STILL,
  AND WE BOTH SHIVERED,  FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.

  I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE,  ON THAT COLD,  DARK, NIGHT,
  THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR,  SO WILLING TO FIGHT.

  THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER,  WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
  WHISPERED,  "CARRY ON SANTA,  IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY,  ALL IS SECURE."

  ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH, AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
  "MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."

First, a few thousand words from the Left - falling New York Times: a) Charles Blow's article on Social Justice, Dec. 21 - facts...and then "off to the Races"; b)David Brooks "Ego As Ideology", Aug. 4, 2015: "Trump is the perfect confluence of these trends. He won't be President, but he's not an aberration".
  2. "Hillary Has Her Running Mate: Obama", by Juan Williams, WSJ Dec. 23, pA13: "The Downside to this strategy is that today's polarizing President could turn out more Republicans than Democrats next year."
  3. "Cheer up, Obama's Legacy Can Be Eraced", by Phil Gramm and Michael Solon, WSJ Dec. 21, pA23: "All I Want for Christmas..."
  4. Some Adult Discourse: "Uncertain Leadership In Perilous Times", by Peggy Noonan, WSJ November 21-22, pA13.
So, what are the real problems?

Minnesota Muslims Demand Pork-Free Halal Food From Minnesota Welfare Food Bank
 
HOLD THE PORK AND JUST GIVE THEM THE AFTER EFFECTS OF THE BEANS...



Above: Somali “refugees” on lifetime welfare demand their free food adhere to Islamic Law
by Jason DeWitt
 
Whoever said “beggars can’t be choosers” never met Somali Muslim refugees in Minnesota.
These Muslim imports in Minneapolis are now demanding a tax-funded “halal” non-pork food shelf at a free food pantry for the poor.
As if it’s not bad enough that nearly all the “American” Muslims who have joined ISIS have been Somalis from Minneapolis, their relatives here are demanding that Americans adhere to the same Sharia Laws the Islamic State fighters are trying to impose throughout the Middle East.
A group of first-generation Somali Americans says they need help in developing a food shelf that specializes in healthy foods that do not contain pork or pork byproducts. “It’s about human rights also, basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” said Imam Hassan Mohamud.
“Human rights”? Seriously? Their arrogance and self-entitlement has to be unprecedented for a group on the public dole.
Tens of thousands of Somalis settled in Minneapolis/St. Paul after Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and later Barack Obama imported them and funded massive “refugee” centers there. Welfare, schools, hospitals and social services have been crushed by the burden of immigrants who lack the most basic skills to live in a modern society.
This is hardly the first demands Somalis have made on the good people of Minneapolis. When the influx of Somali thugs naturally resulted in a massive increase in crime a decade ago, Somalis demanded a $48 million Sharia-compliant “youth center” to keep Somali gangs “out of trouble.”
We have read for several years now how Muslim cab drivers in Minneapolis and several airports have kicked out blind passengers with guide dogs (dogs are “unclean” in Islam), or customers transporting alcohol. They came here, taking advantage of American generosity, and returned it by enforcing their own brand of Sharia Law upon us.
Liberals in Minnesota have bent over backwards for them, setting up foot-washing basins in their airport and even at a university, in response to their demands.
But as with most appeasement, these refugees keep making more demands. Now it is for “halal” products (meat slaughtered with Islamic prayers and a ban on pork).
The Imam leading this protest actually claimed that there were beans with pork in it and this was a “literacy” issue that required more government funding and special halal-compliant beans. But one commenter on the article from Minneapolis wrote:
As someone who made use of the food shelf recently, I can tell you that most of the food doesn’t contain pork. I hear what they are saying about a literacy issue, but can’t the food shelf people just point out the cans of pork and beans? Besides, the food shelf is based on donations!
This is not about Muslims “making do” or getting help on what to eat. The Koran demands that Muslim make any country they live in adapt to them and Sharia Law. The last thing they plan to do is assimilate.
One blogger added:
How long until they demand separate entrances to the food pantry for men and women and separate entrances for Muslims who don’t want to see any Christmas or holiday food or decorations?
The state of Maine has also been crushed by Somalis that Obama has forced upon them. The Governor of Maine, Paul LePage has valiantly been trying to cut off cash aid to Somalis – nearly all of whom are on welfare – since Obama has purposely dumped thousands of them in Lewiston and Portland.
America got Black Hawk Down and 18 dead Americans. Somalis got 90,000+ “asylum” slots in America, free housing, Sharia-compliant facilities, and a lifetime of welfare. How do you say “chumps” in Somali?
 
Each refugee already has access to the following:
Temporary assistance for Needy Families
Medicaid Food Stamps
Supplemental "Security" Income
Social Security Disability Insurance
Administrative Developmental Disabilities (ADD)
Child Care and Development Fund
Independent Living Program
Low Income Housing Energy Assistance
Postsecondary Education Grants
Refugee Assistance Program
Title IV Foster Care
Title XX Social Services Block Grant Fund
 
And from our lovely State Department...$2200 per month for every man, woman and child.
 
How much is the SSI check you receive every month......the SSI fund you paid INTO all of your working life?
 
IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG HERE?!

For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately."

Do You Remember 1987. . .
 
I had forgotten all of this.  Do you remember when the
Senators were giving Ollie North such a  bad time?
This brings it all into perspective doesn't it?
Have a great day.

Do  you remember  1987. . .

Thought you might be interested in  this forgotten bit of information.........
 
It  was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were
playing an old news video of
Lt. Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra
hearings during the Reagan 
Administration.
 
There was  Ollie in front of God and country getting the 
third degree, but what he said was stunning!
 
He was being drilled by a
senator,  'Did you not  recently spend close to
$60,000 for a home security system?'
 
Ollie replied, 'Yes, I did, Sir.'
 
The  senator 
continued, trying to get a laugh out  of the
audience, 'Isn't that just a little excessive?'
'No, sir,' continued Ollie.
'No? And why not?' the 
senator  asked.
 
'Because the lives of my family and I were
threatened, sir.'
 
'Threatened?  By whom?' the senator questioned..
 
'By a Muslim terrorist, sir' Ollie answered.
 
'Terrorist?  What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?'
 
'His  name is Osama bin Laden, sir' Ollie replied.
 
At  this point the senator tried to repeat the name,
but couldn't pronounce it, which most people back then
probably couldn't.  A couple of  people laughed at the attempt.
Then the senator continued.  Why are you so
afraid of this man?' the senator  asked.
 
'Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of',
Ollie answered, and the Muslims are trying to take over America
and  destroy it from the inside out and putting their people into
our political offices.
 
'And  what  do you recommend we do about him?'  asked  the senator..
 
'Well,  sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an
assassin team be formed  to
eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth.'
 
The  senator disagreed  with this approach, and that was all  that
was shown of the clip.
 
By  the way, that senator was Al Gore!

Also:
 
Terrorist pilot  Mohammad Atta  blew up a bus  in
Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and
imprisoned him.  As part of  the
Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993,
Israel had to agree to release
so-called 'political prisoners.'
 
However, the Israelis would not release
any with blood on  their hands.  The American
President at the  time, Bill Clinton,
and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher,
'insisted' that all  prisoners be released.
 
Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked
us by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center
This was  reported by many of the American TV networks at the time
that the terrorists were first identified.

It was censored in the US from all.

Go Dutch . . . But Wait Until 2016?

The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population
is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism.
  
The Dutch government says it will abandon the
long-standing model of multiculturalism that 
has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a
parallel society within the Netherlands . 
 
A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior
Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament, 
on June 16, 2015 reads: 
 
"The government shares the social dissatisfaction
over the multicultural society model and plans 
to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people."
 
In the new integration system, the values of the
Dutch society, play a central role.

With this change, the government steps away
from the model of a multicultural society.
  
The letter continues: "A more obligatory
integration is justified because the government 
also demands that from its own citizens."
  
It is necessary because otherwise the society
gradually grows apart and eventually no one 
feels at home anymore in the Netherlands ..
  
The new integration policy will place more
demands on immigrants.
 
For example, immigrants will be required to
learn the Dutch language, and the  government 
will take a tougher approach to immigrants who
ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law. 
 
The government will also stop offering special
subsidies for Muslim immigrants because,
according to Donner;
 
"It is not the government's job to integrate 
immigrants." (How bloody true!!!)
  
The government will introduce new legislation
that outlaws forced marriages and will also 
impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants
who lower their chances of employment by the way 
they dress.
  
More specifically, the government imposed a ban
on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2016. 
 
Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and
realized - maybe too late - that creating a nation
of tribes, will kill the nation itself.
  
The future of Australia, the UK, USA, Canada and
New Zealand may well be read here. 
  
READERS NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their
countries of birth because of civil and political 
unrest .. . . "CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF
THEIR CULTURE.?
  
Countries like Holland, Canada, USA, UK, Australia, 
and New Zealand have an established way of life that
actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?
  
If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture,
the answer is  simple; "STAY WHERE YOU ARE!"
  
This gives a whole new meaning to the term, 'Dutch
Courage' ... Unfortunately Australian, UK, USA,
Canadian, and New Zealand politicians don't have
the guts to do the same.  There's a whole lot of truth here!

"Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world." - Winston Churchill 1899

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the 
Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, 
the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

•    Islam is an international State, not only a Religion. All interaction with it should be based on that fact. 
•    Moderate Muslims have an obligation to the rest of the world to suppress / destroy those fundamentalists who preach world - wide Jihad. Otherwise, they will be treated similarly.
•    The national Republican Party is experiencing its long-overdue baptism of fire.  The agent for this is THE  PEOPLE, finally awakened from their decades - long slumber.  Those who listen will win.  Those who actually fear the People will lose.  Dr. Ben Carson was exactly on target when he recently made note of this and chose his side. And so is Donald Trump. And will the "legacy" of Barack Obama be that he saved the Republican Party from oblivion?
•    The "leaders" of the American Black Community (whatever that is, but certainly not homogeneous) continue their decades - long cynical push to keep Blacks on their own plantation of dependency, anger and ineffectiveness, all benefiting those "leaders''' personal careers.  What was Albert Einstein's definition of IDIOCY?
•    The Teachers' Unions Complex, no longer a Profession, continues in its self-serving complicity with the above, graduating from high school students who should never have graduated from grammar school.  This fact is the greatest impediment to "the advancement of Colored People".
•    Other examples of a now - entrenched Culture of Self-Interest include our Political - Bureaucratic Complex in Washington, and some in the upper ranks of our Military.  Meanwhile, the interests of the People languish. But perhaps no longer. 
•    Having highlighted some of the more domestic risks facing this nation, we should never forget the Russian Bear, now fully awake from his short hibernation.  Its leader is no longer a rational Gorbachov or Yeltzin who reacted properly to a nearly bankrupt nation, but a bellicose Putin whose reaction to again - severe economic strains is to empower his own military - industrial complex...and perhaps to put it to use in a distracting War.
•    And then there is "Climate Change".  Whether short-term or long-term, and to what extent caused by human activities, it is here and it is disruptive.  We have an individual and collective obligation to do whatever is feasible, in a "risk to benefit analysis", to mitigate it, while avoiding some more self-service from our leaders and even from some elements of the Scientific Community. 
Folks: "THIS IS YOUR MISSION, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT."

REGARDING DONALD TRUMP, "MUSLIMS", AND FEARING THE PEOPLE.

Donald Trump will continue to succeed so long as he understands and articulates the fear and anger of the American People after the last 7 years, and so long as no one else does.  Some facts:
1) Trump said that he would block the entry of all Muslims into the country "until our government figures out what the Hell is going on". The second and modifying part of his statement is never quoted.
2) Islam is not a "Religion".  It is a Religion and a State, both elements inseparable by its own demand.  It is a State that injects itself into all secular aspects of Muslim life and goals.  As such, it does not blindly deserve the protections of our Constitution.  Nor would or did the Nazis or  the Soviets deserve such protection...particularly in a time of War, which we are now in.
3) The wild criticisms of Trump coming from the Left and from their Leftist Press are simply designed to bury Trump, and simultaneously to bury the opinions of many Americans, in order to advance the candidacy of "Bonny and Clyde".
4) The wild criticisms of Trumps opponents in the Republican Party are simply self-serving attempts both to advance their failing efforts and to block the advance of a person who actually reflects the "will of the people" instead of that of the "Establishment": originally the "Military / Industrial Complex" of President Eisenhower and now the politician / bureaucratic complex of Washington. 
If we experience just one more terrorist attack in the next six months on our soil,  Donald Trump will be unstoppable - and deservedly so.
So: WHEN IS THIS GOVERNMENT GOING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

ON ISLAM AND SHARIA LAW.
I do not know whether this is the whole story of the Religion of Islam. But I will try to find out.  I suggest that you do the same, while protecting yourself.

GS

FOR THIS TO COME TO PASS ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS NOTHING

20 years from now, I will be in Heaven --bye !!
This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim.. Make sure you read the paragraph (in red) towards the end.
  

Joys of Muslim Women
By Nonie Darwish


In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by 9.
  

The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.


Even though a woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce.
  

To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.

Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does not have to say why he has beaten her


The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.


The Sharia Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.


In the Western World ( Canada, Australia, United States and Britain ) Muslim men are starting to demand Sharia Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American, Canadian, Universities and British Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Sharia law.


By passing this on, enlightened Canadian, Australians, American and British women may avoid becoming a slave under Sharia Law.
  

Ripping the West in Two.

Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Sharia law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.


She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law. Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel . He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza .....


When he died, he was considered a "shahid," a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society..


But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing.. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.
  

In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law - what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.


For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual.. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world.


Peace and prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.


While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics - one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others..


While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism


It's hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation.


While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.


(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in Canada, Australia, the U.S. And Britain To elect the heads of Government by themselves! Rest assured they will do so... You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA .. Dearborn Mich. Is one and there are others....) ( Britain has several cities now totally controlled by Muslims)


I think everyone in Canada, Australia, the U.S. And Great Britain Should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!


It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful.. Some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam.. The peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While Canada, Australia, the U.S.A. and Britain are getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great jihad on North America, Australia and Britain ...

MORE ON THE MIDDLE EAST

Extending back in time long before the discovery of Oil there, the Middle East was a favored place for intervention and mischief by European nations. The status of that area today is partly related to that history and largely related to a vicious Muslim family fight between Shia and Sunni divisions that began around 680 AD and that continues unabated to this day.  The permanent presence of the State of Israel in that region only makes the matters worse.

So, what is the proper role of America in that area of the world and in trying to address its many problems - not out of blind charity but out of vital and even existential self-interest?

Here, all of us must know what we know and...more importantly...know what we do not know. For, whether our American sons and daughters in the military are there with boots on or barefoot, we are there for the long-term. A recent publication which, in addition to the biography of Lawrence of Arabia, can serve as a primer was recently published in Foreign Affairs: "THE POST-AMERICAN MIDDLE EAST" (November - December, 2015).

Remember, there are three kinds of people: those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who are constantly muttering "WHA HOPPEN?"

I DON'T MEAN TO "PILE ON", BUT THE EXAMPLES JUST KEEP ON COMING: THE "UBER" - LEFT IS UNEDUCATED AND UNEDUCABLE.

There are my most recent postings making reference to " President Obama's Imaginary World" and to "What No Politician Wants To Admit About Gun Control".
Today in the Huffington Post comes an article entitled "The Continued Degradation Of Health Insurance Under The ACA".  This is another example of the Left's New Math: 2+2=5, or 10, or whatever...but never 4.

After a factual and informative description of the current implosion of ObamaCare, the author (John Geyman) arrives at his universal solution: national governmental one-payor health care.  WRONG, Professor Geyman, for all the many reasons that I have outlined on various parts of this web site over the years.  And I will not repeat them.  Look it up!
And then we have the continuing spectacle of the FBI, the Media and of course President Obama engaging in all manner of contortions to avoid admitting the obvious: San Bernadino was an act of Terrorism, probably the first of others planned by this radicalized Muslim pair. 

The only cure for this spreading acute and chronic illness is political demise.
