Dobbs – Congressional Leaders Like 
“Little Pink Poodles” Afraid Of The Bad Guys
{rickwells.us} ~ Lou Dobbs and Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch have both had more than they can take of the corruption and complicity in it that is so commonplace in the DC swamp... particularly in the Department of Justice. From judges in America to the Attorney General and all points in between, fairness and the fidelity to the Constitution are no longer valued or required. Dobbs opens by taking note of the fact that Paul Manafort is not being allowed to defend himself in public against such a tyrannical judge, making his point. Dobbs moves on to the topic that really has him beside himself, saying, “The House Intelligence Committee has decided to strike a deal with the co-founder of the political smear machine, Fusion GPS.” He continues, “It’s the outfit that authored the infamous Trump dossier. The panel will lift its subpoena and Glenn Simpson will meet behind closed doors with them.” Dobbs asks his audience, “Do you see the theme here, gag orders, closed doors? Simpson’s attorneys say he won’t plead the Fifth as two fellow executives did just last month.”... https://rickwells.us/dobbs-congress-pink-poodles/#prettyPhoto

Trump Gives China “Great Credit” For Taking
Advantage Of Weak, Compromised US Presidents
{rickwells.us} ~ President Trump, speaking in Beijing on his Asian trip was considerate of the hospitality, relationship with President Xi and the cooperation he’s receiving in a variety of areas... including the important and tense matter of North Korea. President Trump recognizes that much of the inequities between our two nations are simply the result of China acting in their own best interest competing with an America with leadership that was unwilling to put their own nation first. He said, “Both the United States and China will have a more prosperous future if we can achieve a level economic playing field.” That might have been the point at which some were expecting the attack language from the American President, but it was not to be. Trump said, “Right now, unfortunately, it is a very one-sided and unfair one. But, but, I don’t blame China. After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefit of its citizens?”...  https://rickwells.us/trump-china-credit-presidents/

Rep. Gaetz: "We Are at Risk of a Coup d'Etat 
in This Country" Unless Mueller Resigns or is Fired
by MICHAEL W. CHAPMAN
{familysecuritymatters.org} ~ House Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller -- who is investigating alleged Russian collusion with the Trump 2016 campaign -- to resign... because there is an apparent conflict of interest involving Mueller and an alleged campaign to undermine the president and force him from office. Rep. Gaetz also called for a special prosecutor to investigate the Uranium One scandal, the liar-Clinton Foundation, and the Fusion GPS firm, which produced the "Russian dossier" alleging Trump-Russia collusion and which was paid by liar-nObama for America's law firm, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the liar-Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.  Special Counsel Mueller's investigation is, in part, based on the Fusion GPS-provided "dossier."...  http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/rep-gaetz-...

Judge again dismisses liar-Clinton email suits
by JOSH GERSTEIN
{politico.com} ~ A federal judge has dismissed — for a second time — a pair of lawsuits seeking to force the State Department to do more to recover former Secretary of State liar-Hillary Clinton's emails... The new ruling from U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg could irritate President Donald Trump, who is said to have been fuming in recent weeks over reports that the State Department is still processing a backlog of tens of thousands of liar-Clinton emails the FBI came across during its investigation into whether liar-Clinton or her aides broke the law by exchanging information deemed classified. Trump has also complained publicly that the Justice Department has failed to to dig into liar-Clinton's email use...These Judges need to get out of the way, the people want to know the truths. https://www.politico.com/story/2017/11/10/clinton-email-suits-dismi...

Podesta Group CEO, 
Kimberley Fritts, Quits Lobbying Group
{theconservativetreehouse.com} ~ An interesting development amid the various swampy happenings both domestically and internationally.  With Robert Mueller focusing on foreign interest lobbying efforts within Washington DC... and amid Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman confronting corruption within the financing of foreign political influence; Podesta CEO Kimberley Fritts announces she is leaving to form her own firm. Considering that Mrs. Fritts previously announced her intention of remaining at the Podesta group and rebranding the lobbying firm, sans Tony Podesta, questions arise as to what might have made Fritts change her mind...  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/11/10/podesta-group-ceo-k...

With Teladoc, the Doctor 
Will See You Now ... Really!

by Cal Thomas
{townhall.com} ~ If you're tired of the dysfunction in Washington -- the backbiting, the questioning of motives, the failure to agree on much of anything, the one-upmanship, the allegations about a "stolen" presidential election, Russian "collusion," the posturing and boorish behavior -- how about focusing on something that is working and benefits a growing number of people?

Consider a company called Teladoc, which provides access to a doctor through a computer screen, telephone, or mobile app. The waiting time, a company official tells me, is between eight and ten minutes. That beats any doctor's office I have ever been in, even with an appointment. The company claims a 95 percent satisfaction rate with 92 percent of issues resolved after the first visit.

Here's how it works. Say your child wakes up in the middle of the night with a fever or some other health issue. You go to your computer, phone or mobile app and describe the symptoms to the doctor, who then prescribes treatment. It can be in the form of a prescription or, if the symptoms seem more serious, the doctor will recommend a specialist or a trip to the hospital. The doctor has previously been provided your family's medical history through the app.

Teladoc services are offered through a subscribing company's insurance plan. The company currently serves 10,000 clients and 20 million members, according to a company spokeswoman. All physicians are board certified and licensed in their respective states. They are available any hour of the day or night and every day of the year. Is your doctor that accessible? Unless you live with one, probably not.

The cost? A low $40 to $45 per session.

Jason Gorevic, Teladoc's CEO, tells me: "Consumers of health care are looking for a better way. Regardless of the political environment, there is a growing demand for a better way to provide medical services to individuals."

Gorevic says Teladoc is especially helpful to people living in rural areas where a doctor is not close by, or unavailable.

Reporting on this growing and popular trend in telemedicine, health care writer Bruce Japsen wrote in Forbes magazine: "Health plans see a way for patients to get high-quality care from a physician and the potential to avoid a more expensive trip to a hospital emergency room." Teladoc executives also say they are seeing growth opportunities in mental health, dermatology and smoking cessation programs.

Japsen adds that the field of virtual medicine is growing about ten percent per year with projections it will soon reach 26.9 million, which seems likely given the current spurt.

Gorevic sees increasing interest from health plans that contract with state Medicaid programs for poor Americans, as well as Medicare Advantage plans that provide benefits to seniors. This could save time and money by reducing trips to emergency rooms for less serious ailments.

Let's review: A health plan that bypasses government bureaucracy; rapid access to a doctor who knows a family's medical history; prompt treatment, or quick referral; low cost -- what's not to like?

It is another example of how the private sector, when it is allowed to innovate and flourish, outshines the federal government almost every time.

Virtual medicine, led by companies like Teladoc, is not the wave of the future, but of the present.

If you're unhappy with increasingly expensive, impersonal and slow access to medical care -- and some liberal politicians are already pushing for single-payer, which would likely make waiting times longer and lower the quality of treatment -- you might feel a lot better, while saving money and time, by going virtual.

ALERT ALERT

“Stop Mass Hysteria”  Michael Savage On Current Media Frenzy: It’s Like A Virus, An Epidemic… It Will Die Of Its Own Oxygen Deprivation 

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft interviewed Dr. Michael Savage on his latest book “Stop Mass Hysteria” this weekend.

“Stop Mass Hysteria” COULD NOT come at a better time. And our discussion with Dr. Savage on this subject was timely to say the least.

Dr. Savage discussed the history of mass hysteria in America from the Salem witch trials to the Trump-Russial collusion witch hunt.

Michael Savage also shared his thoughts on the mass hysteria surrounding the Brett Kavananaugh confirmation hearings.

Dr. Michael Savage: Let me just say starting from the beginning that there is a huge difference between mass hysteria and justified concern. And this is something we have to understand. There are imagined threats and then there is real danger as we all know. And this is an imagined threat – That Kavanaugh poses a threat to all women on the planet that he’s a mad rapist. That he will be on the Supreme Court running around and making the climate of rape more acceptable. This is the greatest example of mass hysteria since the Trump derangement syndrome. And it is a continuation of course, of the hatred of Trump and their hatred for those of us who supported Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s agenda more than Donald Trump. It’s really not about Donald Trump it’s about the agenda which is largely based on modern nationalism that I offered for many, many years.

Dr. Savage is truly brilliant. He publishes a book on mass hyteria and the the Kavanaugh confirmation comes along.

Dr. Savage goes on to say the number one greatest threat facing America today is radical Islam. “For the last 1,400 years radical Islam has been at war with the world. This is not Islamophobia as the mainstream media would have you believe. It is history.”

Michael Savage took some time to bash CNN in his chapter titled “From Salem to CNN” where he compares the two asking, “They’re not too different are they?”

Michael went on to describe the real “war on women” is the radical feminists who are actually debasing feminists and debasing women across America with false accusations, or exaggerated accusations.

Dr. Savage talked about the danger of mass hysteria, “It’s like a virus. As a trained epidemiologist it’s really like an epidemic. It’s almost a medical situation, this madness is very similar to an epidemic that continues to spread though a population without discriminating who it attacks. That’s the point. And so in stopping mass hysteria I try to bring real history to the discussion rather than straight polemics.”

Near the end of the interview I asked Michael about what will eventually the end of mass hysteria. Michael offered this, “We have to believe at the end reason will trump hysteria. We have to believe. I believe this mania we are living through will die of its own oxygen deprivation.”

Let’s hope Dr. Savage is right. He usually is. God help us.
