Howard Dean critiqued Rep. Paul Broun’s medical credentials Wednesday, expressing his disappointment in hearing “doctors talk like that” about Obamacare.

**************

“I don’t know where these people get their M.D.’s, but it must be in the state lottery or something,” the former Vermont governor and Democratic presidential candidate told Ed Schultz on MSNBC.

Dean, a doctor himself, was responding to assertions Broun made to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that Obamacare would “destroy everything we know as a nation.”

Broun, who is also a Republican senatorial candidate in Georgia, told Blitzer that he supported the shutdown because Obamacare would ruin patient care in the United States and shatter the economy.

Woodward: White House ‘Code: You Better Watch Out’

Newspaper editor and book author Bob Woodward continued his battle with President Barack Obama’s administration on Thursday, saying the White House is playing the “old trick” of attacking the messenger because he accurately reported the president’s reversal on the upcoming sequester.

“They got caught and — this is an old trick — make the conduct of the press the issue rather than their conduct,” Woodward told Fox NewsSean Hannity Thursday night. “The biggest story in Washington is the town itself. What a craze it has become.”

Appearing on CNN Wednesday, the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward said a “very senior person” at the White House warned him that he would “regret doing this,” referring to his outspoken criticism of President Barack Obama’s handling of the impending forced cuts known as the sequester.

 

 

“I think they’re confused,” Woodward told CNN host Wolf Blitzer. Woodward apparently went on to criticize Obama further over the sequester the same day he received the warning from the White House.

Audio which indicates police involved in the siege against Christopher Dorner deliberately planned to set fire to the fugitive’s cabin was preceded by an attempt by authorities to impose a media blackout in an apparent effort to cover up the chain of events that led to Dorner’s death.

 

As the standoff reached its height, Big Bear-area police scanners were disabled online in order to “ensure officer safety.”

Government Has Proven One Thing, and We Can’t Say It

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Today, any American who speaks up has reason to expect he will be set up, imprisoned, killed in an air crash, called an anti-semite or terrorist or see a family member die of a freak accident.

There are thousands of these cases and huge “medium-secret” bureaucracies that exist to silence dissent and defend the hold criminals have over the state. I have had friends bankrupted, asset siezed, jailed for nothing whatsoever, their grandchildren murdered in mysterious street crimes.

Most of those I speak of all worked in the White House at one time. Take that as a warning, public service has its risks. No pattern has been reported, news simply passes on the press releases, accidents, bodies found, planes crashed, endless coincidences that go unnoticed. Unnoticed? Those who would notice had been gotten rid of long ago. We never asked as “the news” forgot to mention that we should be concerned.

Even complacency requires awareness.

Try naming a reporter who isn’t a teleprompter Zombie or, worse than that, a “Wolf Blitzer.” Attempts at real news comes from Jon Stewart who gets it right so long as he doesn’t go too far, we call folks like him our “gatekeepers,” an outlet for those seeking truth but willing to be managed like children.

Rush: CNN set up Trump on birther issue

May 30, 2012 4 comments

Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says CNN “set up” billionaire developer Donald Trump last night, springing the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility for office during an interview with the cable network’s Wolf Blitzer.

“It was clearly a set-up,” Limbaugh said. “Here’s Donald Trump being set up by Blitzer and CNN, for the express purpose of what? Using that interview last night to do nothing but besmirch Romney with Trump and this birther business. That becomes the media narrative all day, so you can talk about Romney and his associations.”

Limbaugh then listed some of today’s media headlines to prove his point.

Letters: Will the tea party kill U.S. compassion? (Here it comes!)

September 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Have no doubt about it: compassion is out of fashion, as Paul Krugman noted in the New York Times Sept. 15.

At the recent tea party-sponsored GOP debate Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul what we should do if a 30-year-old man chose not to purchase health insurance and then found himself in need of six months of intensive care. “That’s what freedom is all about — taking your own risks,” said Paul.

Blitzer followed up, “So, society should let him die?”

Before Paul could answer, the crowd erupted with cheers and shouts of “Yeah!”

Who are these tea party people?!

A year and a half ago when this movement got started we were assured they were just “average Americans.” And polls in April 2010 showed this was somewhat true: a little over half were Republican and the rest were independents and conservative Democrats. But the latest survey of their membership shows a much different picture. More than 80 percent are Republicans, 15 percent are independents and 5 percent Dems. They are for the most part the radical religious-right sector of the Republican Party that we have always known.

The most recent study of this group, posted Aug, 17, 2011, on the Internet, reveals the truth: They are white, have a low regard for immigrants and blacks, have a desire for religion to play a prominent role in politics, seek deeply religious elected officials, want religion brought into political debates.

These people who scream to let the poor fellow without health insurance die are religious! And let’s say it, they are Christian religious!

This is most disconcerting to me, a Christian clergy person. I have always assumed being Christian meant being compassionate for the weak and vulnerable. And especially those who are vulnerable through no fault of their own. For as Krugman points out, most uninsured Americans either have low incomes and cannot afford insurance or are rejected by insurers because they have chronic conditions. The tea party attitude, evidently from the audience response last week, is let them wither and die.

The same for immigrants. The same for minority school children in poor school districts. The same for Muslims.

So, the lack of compassion has become a matter of principle for tea party members.

It is a truly radical movement that is angry and organized to overturn the kind of society that we have enjoyed in the past, a society that tries, with the help of government, to ease some of the hazards of life through programs like Social Security, unemployment insurance, Medicare and Medicaid.

Tyranny of the Typical

September 21, 2011 1 comment

And now let us recall the “Fable of the Shoes.”

In his 1973 “Libertarian Manifesto,” the late Murray Rothbard argued that the biggest obstacle in the road out of serfdom was “status quo bias.” In society, we’re accustomed to rapid change. “New products, new life styles, new ideas are often embraced eagerly.” Not so with government. When it comes to police or firefighting or sanitation, government must do those things because that’s what government has (allegedly) always done.

“So identified has the State become in the public mind with the provision of these services,” Rothbard laments, “that an attack on State financing appears to many people as an attack on the service itself.” The libertarian who wants to get the government out of a certain business is “treated in the same way as he would be if the government had, for various reasons, been supplying shoes as a tax financed monopoly from time immemorial.”

If everyone had always gotten their shoes from the government, writes Rothbard, the proponent of shoe privatization would be greeted as a kind of lunatic. “How could you?” defenders of the status quo would squeal. “You are opposed to the public, and to poor people, wearing shoes! And who would supply shoes … if the government got out of the business? Tell us that! Be constructive! It’s easy to be negative and smart-alecky about government; but tell us who would supply shoes? Which people? How many shoe stores would be available in each city and town? … What material would they use? … Suppose a poor person didn’t have the money to buy a pair?”

It’s worth keeping this fable in mind as the reaction to last week’s CNN-Tea Party Express debate hardens into popular myth. Moderator Wolf Blitzer had asked Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) what should happen if a man refuses to get health insurance and then has a medical crisis. Paul — a disciple of Rothbard — explained that freedom is about taking risks. “But, congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?”

At this point, a few boneheads in the audience shouted “yeah!” and clapped, though liberal pundits and activists imagine they saw an outpouring of support.

Paul calmly replied that he’s not in favor of letting the man die. A physician who practiced before Medicare and Medicaid were enacted, Paul noted that hospitals were never in the practice of turning away patients in need. “We’ve given up on this whole concept that we might take care of ourselves and assume responsibility for ourselves,” he observed. “Our neighbors, our friends, our churches would do it.”

Both Mitt Romney and Rick Perry have condemned the response from the Paulistas in the audience and endorsed a more active role in government in health care.

Still, it’s amazing how quickly status quo bias kicks in. Since the 1960s, it has become a given not only that the government should be more involved in areas like health care and poverty but that these problems remain intractable because the government has not gotten more involved. That’s the premise behind so many of the anti-libertarian questions at the GOP debates. Any rejection of the assumption is derided as a right-wing effort to “turn back the clock.”

Well, let’s do just that for a moment. Charles Murray, my colleague at the American Enterprise Institute, notes that the most remarkable drop in the poverty rate didn’t come after President Lyndon B. Johnson declared war on poverty but when President Eisenhower ignored it. Over a mere 12 years, from 1949 to 1961, the poverty rate was cut in half. Similarly the biggest gains in health coverage came when government was less involved in health care, i.e. before the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1966. Duke University Professor Christopher Conover notes that in 1940, 90 percent of Americans were uninsured, but by 1960, that number was down to 25 percent.

Blitzer’s specific error was to use “society” and “government” as interchangeable terms. People need shoes. But that doesn’t require the government to provide shoes for everyone. Similarly, poverty rates should go down. But does that mean it’s the government’s responsibility?

Maybe the answer is yes. But if it is, the burden of proof that the government can do better than “society” should fall on those who, in effect, want the government to win the future by “investing” in shoes — rather than on those of us who are open to the idea of turning back the clock………….
