While the President Honors the Enemy, Americans Honor Americans

Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay

Memorial Day.1

President Barack Obama has visited the Peace Memorial Park at Hiroshima, but Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has no intention of reciprocating with a visit to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The U.S. president said he visited Hiroshima to “honor all WWII dead.” All, Mr. President? Kamikaze’s? Nazi’s? Pearl Harbor bombers? Bataan Death March Imperial Japanese? Murderous SS troops who massacred defenseless American POW’s? All Mr. President?

On the 40th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, President Ronald Reagan said: “We must never forget what nuclear weapons wrought upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki, yet we must also remain mindful that our maintenance of a strong nuclear deterrent has for four decades ensured the security of the United States and the freedom of our allies in Asia and Europe.”

Nearly 22 years ago, Emperor Akihito visited a war dead cemetery just a few miles from Pearl Harbor on a stopover on his…

Piglets 1

Immigrant-boys mistreatment of pigs on a visit to farms in Aarhus got the municipality to intervene and remove the animals.

by, Christian Kloster | MX Metropress | h/t Exponerat

(Translated from Danish) – At Aarhus Municipality visits agricultural Natursamarbejdet near Gellerupparken some children are sad that the funny pigs have been removed.

The explanation so far has been that they were removed for a neighbor, the environment and animal welfare. But behind the word welfare hiding brutal mistreatment of pigs – typically stoning. In one case had a piglet killed after the children of a different ethnic background than Danish had stuck a stick in it.

“In the area out there, there are children of different ethnic origins, which unfortunately does not like pigs. They thought it was fun to throw stones at the pigs, “said municipal biologist Niels Jørgen Friis.

He says that both visitors, the site ranger and…

In last year’s National Defense Authorization Act, Congress cut benefits to veterans by increasing co-pays for prescriptions. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the increased co-pays saved the federal government approximately $1.5 billion. (SeeCBO Estimate FY2016 NDAA) However, it now appears that $336 million generated from the veterans’ cuts was used to pay for 3,000 additional Afghan interpreters to be resettled in the United States.  (The Daily Caller News Foundation, May 16, 2016)

Known as the Special Immigrant Visa (SIV), this program was created by Congress in 2009 for Afghan employees and contractors who were employed by the U.S. government in Afghanistan any time after October 6, 2001, and who experienced an ongoing serious threat as a result of that employment. (See P.L. 111-8; 8 U.S.C. § 1101 note 26) Initially, the annual cap on SIVs issued was 1,500…

MACRA spawned rule proposals must be read, digested, and refused

Dear Physician Colleagues,

That we convened on a Sunday night is evidence of the severe and urgent nature of our current plight in medicine. The care of our patients has been absconded by the Executive Branch of our federal government with a wink, nod, and nudge from Congress and the Court.

I am pleased that this group of us divided up the task of reading the MACRA proposed rules by May 1. Thus far, I have read the preamble and my assigned pages, 400-500. On our conference call last night, those of who read the rules were universally aghast. The suggestion was made to go forward with the assertion that these rules are unconstitutional violating many amendments particularly 4, 5 and 9, and no doubt others. There is much we need to discuss further. We must take action now. I will do my best to highlight my…

Sunday, May 22, 2016

Dear CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt,

Thank you for the opportunity to voice my dissent regarding the proposed rule spawned from MACRA by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and published in The Federal Register on 05/09/2016. I have read the ACA, MACRA, and MACRA proposed rule. Because the rule is extensive, my dissent is accordingly substantial. To be complete, my comments will be submitted in a series of submissions, my daily dissent, over the course of the next month prior to the deadline of 5 p.m. on June 27, 2016. To clarify, the initial document I downloaded from HHS/CMS and read was 962 pages, but my comments will refer to the document as published in The Federal Register on 05/09/2016 corresponding to numbers indicated in the right lower corner of each of 625 pages. The Table of Contents alone spans 12 pages. The rule…
