Americans for Prosperity Ad Hammers Obama On “Doing Fine” Comment (Video)

Americans for Prosperity released a new ad today, just hammering Obama for his claim that the private sector is doing fine.

Check it out:

While the mainstream media is busy carrying the messaging water for the DNC, trying their best to portray Romney as an out of touch throwback to the 1950s, even go as far as to lie about his speeches, President Obama sits in his bubble, blissfully ignorant about how the rest of America is doing.

NHS Doctor Claims They Kill Elderly Off to Open Beds

When Gov. Sarah Palin said ObamaCare would end up with patients standing before a death panel, she was talking about how bureaucracy would be created to decide if it was fiscally responsible to pay for a patients treatment, or if it was better to just let them die.

That is actually more humanitarian than what is allegedly happening in Great Britain’s hospitals.  They’re just killing the old folks off to open a bed:

NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday.

Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of a controversial ‘death pathway’ into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly.

He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country.

It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.

It can include withdrawal of treatment – including the provision of water and nourishment by tube – and on average brings a patient to death in 33 hours.

There are around 450,000 deaths in Britain each year of people who are in hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent – 130,000 – are of patients who were on the LCP.

Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the LCP and it had now become an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’.

He cited ‘pressure on beds and difficulty with nursing confused or difficult-to-manage elderly patients’ as factors.

Professor Pullicino revealed he had personally intervened to take a patient off the LCP who went on to be successfully treated.

Of course the government denies this is happening, and really who would know better:  the government or a doctor working in the hospital where this is happening?

Proponents of socialized medicine, or single payer, claim that people shouldn’t make a profit off of health care, yet ignore or disregard stories like this.  When a private hospital does something that violates your rights, you can turn to the courts to make things right.

Who do you turn to when it’s the government?

Most Transparent Administration Ever Hides Fast & Furious Docs Behind Executive Privilege

Obama - Pumpus & Smug

President Obama has asserted executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents Rep. Darrell Issa has been demanding from Attorney General Eric Holder:

President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.

Romney Says He Is Vetting Marco Rubio for VP Spot

Yesterday, ABC News reported that Marco Rubio wasn’t being vetted for Mitt Romney’s running mate.

Romney says different:

“There was a story that originated today apparently at ABC based upon reports of supposedly outside unnamed advisers of mine,” Romney said in Holland, Michigan. “I can’t imagine who such people are. But I can tell you this: they know nothing about the vice presidential selection or evaluation process. There are only two people in this country who know who are being vetted and who are not: And that’s Beth myers and myself. And I know Beth well. She doesn’t talk to anybody. The story was entirely false. Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process.”

Marco’s a good choice, but not my first.

I’d take someone more likely to fire up the base who was reluctant to get behind me in the first place.

Not that I have anyone in mind, per se…

Rush Limbaugh: MSNBC Got Caught And They’re Now Trying to Minimize the Damage (Video)

MSNBC tried to pull the wool over their viewers eyes by editing a video of Mitt Romney in a way that showed him to be out of touch.

Today, after their journalistic malfeasance was pointed out by Sooper Mexican, they attempted to explain why they did what they did.

Rush was not impressed:

“That was it?

They just didn’t have time to play the whole thing and that’s it?

Had time to laugh.

Wow. That’s pathetic.

No, that’s a “real journalist,” or so we’re led to believe.

3rd Grader Accused of Taking $20, So Of Course They Strip Search Him

More great news from the Educational Industrial Complex:

Justin Cox, ten, a student at Union Elementary School in Clinton, was ordered to strip to his T-shirt and boxer shorts on June 1 after a girl student accused him of taking $20, WRAL TV reported.

He told his mom Clarinda Cox that a girl dropped the cash and he picked it up and returned it to her.

She told the TV station, “If I felt he needed to be searched, I would have brought him into the bathroom. You could have had a witness in the bathroom with me. I would have searched my son.”

Female assistant principal, Teresa Holmes, did not find the money, and hugged Justin and apologized to him afterwards, she claimed.

I hope she waited until he put his pants back on.

Over the top?


“She came up to him and rubbed her fingers around inside of his underwear,” Cox said. “If that isn’t excessively intrusive, I don’t know what is.”

Who is training these people? In what world is strip searching a third grader the logical choice?

Welcome to the police state, Justin. Now drop your pants. Your rights are worth less than $20.

Shame: MSNBC Deceptively Edits Video To Damage Romney

There’s no excuse for this. This is journalistic malfeasance.

And these are “real journalists.

There is only one reason to edit the video the way they did, and that was portray Romney as out of touch. This is not a “news” organization.

It’s a leftist propaganda channel. Truth does not reside there.

Shame on you, MSNBC. But worse, shame on the people who actually allow themselves to be duped by you.

Hat Tip: Just about everybody in the rightosphere, but I got the video on Breitbart.

UPDATE (by Andrew) Here’s a video without the context removed.

Mayors Support Parents Taking Control of Failing Schools and Privatizing Them

Parents rejoice!

At a recent meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Orlando, Florida, mayors from across the country came out in support of your right to take control of failing public schools, get rid of bad teachers, give the boot to the administration and privatize the school if you choose.

And when I say “mayors,” I mean Democrat mayors too. In fact, they were leading the charge:

The U.S. Conference of Mayors, meeting in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday unanimously endorsed “parent trigger” laws aimed at bypassing elected school boards and giving parents at the worst public schools the opportunity to band together and force immediate change.

Such laws are fiercely opposed by teachers’ unions, which stand to lose members in school takeovers. Union leaders say there is no proof such upheaval will improve learning. And they argue that public investment in struggling communities, rather than private management of struggling schools, is the key to boosting student achievement.

But in a sign of the unions’ diminishing clout, their traditional political allies, the Democrats, abandoned them in droves during the Orlando vote.

Democratic Mayors Michael Nutter of Philadelphia, Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles and Kevin Johnson of Sacramento led the charge for parent trigger – and were backed by scores of other Democrats as well as Republicans from coast to coast.

“Mayors understand at a local level that most parents lack the tools they need to turn their schools around,” Villaraigosa said. Parent trigger laws, he added, can empower parents to do just that.

Representatives from the two largest teachers’ unions, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, were not available for comment Sunday.

Fantastic. The fact is, teacher’s unions don’t give a rip about students. Teachers do. At least, most do. Some.

But the unions. Not at all.

Remember this quote:

Let me reinforce that:

The sooner teacher’s unions are a thing of the past and parents take more control of the education of their children, the sooner American educations starts improving.
