RAPID RESPONSE...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.

GERMANY: BEWARE...

My father fought in WW I against Germany.

I was born on Jan. 30, 1933 - the exact day that Adolph Hitler came to Power in the Reichtag.

I lived through WW II with a family member in that war. 

I studied five years of German.

I served two years in the U.S.Army Medical Corps, 1960-1962, in Germany.
 
I keep informed.

GERMANY: BEWARE !

SEE : "THE COMING COLLAPSE OF THE U.S.HEALTH CARE SYSTEM", by Robert Glatter, M.D. and Peter Papadakos, M.D.
 
This is REAL, folks. 
 
And it doesn't even mention the constantly increasing abusive, self-serving and often duplicative demands being made by Medicare and by commercial health insurance payors for "records" and for professional documentation - even on a quarterly basis when the only datum that has changed in the interim is the professional's Age. 
To this add the abuse of requirements for "Prior thorization" before a physician-prescribed service or substance can be paid - and therefore made available to the patient.
The sum total of this is substantial increases in the payor's bottom line at the expense of the professionals providing the health care services. 
 
The Losers here: the Patients and their Care-Givers. 
 
This cannot be sustained. Thus: "THE COMING COLLAPSE...."
Physicians and other Health Care Providers do not have the political power to correct this. 
ONLY AN IMPATIENT PUBLIC DOES.. But they do not have much time.

Fox News: 210 Democrats vote against bill requiring medical care for babies born alive after abortion attempt

The radical Left has once again shown their true colors.

We must do everything we possibly can to make sure Democrats’ dreams of infanticide NEVER come true. We need 10,000 supporters to sign the Official Right to Life Petition before today’s March for Life event in D.C. ends.

We’re begging you to help protect the unborn by putting an END TO INFANTICIDE. Please do your part by adding your name.

After his MAJOR win on Election Day, Governor DeSantis had this to say:
 
“We have embraced freedom. We have maintained law and order. We have protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers, and we reject woke ideology. We fight the woke in the legislature. We fight the woke in the schools. We fight the woke in the corporations. We will never, ever surrender to the woke mob. Florida is where woke goes to die.”

SO NOW WE HAVE A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, SUCH AS IT IS:
 
a *president who still may be proven to be a "pretender to the throne" - Drip. Drip. Drip; 
a vice president who is a laughing-stock;
a run-away Bureaucracy that is usurping power all around it; 
a U.S. Supreme Court being forced to labor under organizational and personal threats; 
a House of Representatives almost evenly divided between crazy Democratic lemmings and fractured Republican independents;
a Senate that places its own historical reputation above addressing current pressing national enigmas;
 
AND WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT THEY SHOULD BE ADDRESSING AS AMERICA APPROACHES A MOST CONSEQUENTIAL NATIONAL ELECTION?
 
Election Integrity.
Abortion. 
Border Control.
Law and Order.
Bureaucracy.
National Solvency.
National Security.
Cyber-Security.
Politicization of our Critical Institutions: Military, Law Enforcement, Justice, Intelligence, Education, Health....
Work and Welfare...the balance.
Morality, Ethics...and Religion.
Personal Privacy and Tech.
Integrity of Journalism.
Our Economy: the balance between Freedom and Regulation.

ALRIGHT: I'M ALMOST OVER COMMENTING ON THE HOUSE SPEAKERSHIP CIRCUS ABOUT TO ENTER ITS SECOND ACT. 
 
I have already recommended one article that describes the despotic Speakership just ended, versus that which has been imposed on Speaker McCarthy:
the recent article in the WSJ by Kimberly Strassel.
 
Now comes another insight by a long-time analyst, whose offering is enhanced by the fact that her long anti-Trump fever appears to have broken, leaving only a clear view of what we have too often come to laughingly call that "deliberative body" - Congress. 
"Normal Republicans, Stand Up To the Fringe", by Peggy Noonan, (in WSJ January 7-8, 2023, Opinion, pA13).
 
NOW, PERHAPS, ONWARD AND UPWARD.
 
GS

RR#3


FOR THE SPEAKERSHIP: "CONCESSIONS" OR REFORMS?
 
With rare exception, generally from the WSJ and on Fox News, there is no longer unbiased journalistic reportage. 
There are half-truths and outright bias on every page. 
 
Example: look up the Newsweek article (and numerous other reports) that describe the recent House Republican negotiations as distorting or weakening the Speaker's role and latitude in conducting the nation's business. 
In fact, LOOK THEM UP. The changes negotiated alter the Speaker's role from DESPOT to democratic representative (small "d") of his colleagues and of the people who elected them all. That's A Good Thing...And It's About Time.

RR#1

DOCTORS AND THEIR PATIENTS GENERALLY KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE DOCTORS MAKE A WRONG DIAGNOSIS. 
 
And the Republican Political Doctors made a wrong diagnosis regarding the poor outcome for them in the November, 2022 elections. 
They attributed the results to an anti - Trump vote.   WRONG. 
The result was directly attributable to the Poison Pill of American Politics: ABORTION. 
If the USSC had announced its decision after the election, the Republican Party would have wrested control of both the House and the Senate from the Democrats. 
 
And the mess of the House Speakership election is the direct result of that misdiagnosis and the frustration that followed.
There are ample excellent analyses of what is now going on, much better than I can offer. I urge their review on the reader, for your sake and for that of our nation. Meanwhile, some Republicans marvel at the "discipline" of the Democrat House members in their constant voting unanimity...in supporting positions and actions like the erasure of our national southern border with the influx of millions of unknown foreigners throughout our cities and neighborhoods; support of lawlessness on our streets and in our courts; enabling of raw sex experimentation on even very young children; the killing of human beings in abortion; the bankrupting of our nation; complete erasure of any semblance of morality, personal or societal....
THIS IS NOT "DISCIPLINE". THIS IS MADNESS.
 
BUT WHO ARE "REPUBLICANS"?  AND HOW MANY KINDS ARE THEY?
There can only be ONE KIND OF "REPUBLICAN": A PERSONALLY AND POLITICALLY CONSERVATIVE PERSON WHO STANDS AND FIGHTS AGAINST EVERY BIT OF THE ABOVE NOTED MADNESS, for the benefit of his country - and even at his personal expense. 
 
If the current Speakership exercise ends up producing that, it will have been worth it...and we as a nation will have avoided an explosion in the Fall of 2024.

GS

RR#4

AS A GROUP OF REPUBLICAN MEMBERS (TOO FEW, IT TURNS OUT) TRY TO RETURN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO A DELIBERATIVE BODY,
an equally serious change in our system of "self-governance" has taken place in recent decades, something which I appreciated during a Law School course:
"ADMINISTRATIVE LAW".
American Law is supposed to be enacted by ELECTED  representatives of the PEOPLE - and administered by non-elected hired workers under the theoretical control of the President. It became clear to me that that had long ceased to be the case, with resulting great loss of influence and control by the People on how and by whom they were being controlled. Although Serious and un-democratic on its face, I did not realize the broader implications of those changes on the nation's entire structure and function. 
 
Now comes an excellent article on the subject that bodes ill and dangerous for our national integrity unless corrected:
 
"How The Supreme Court Set The Stage For The Jan.  6 Riot.", by Philip Hamberger, (in WSJ Januiaryi 6, 2023, Opinion, pA15).  
 
Beware.
