 Lessons From the 50th of Medicare and Medicaid 
Massive unfunded debt is not what the progressive politicians who created Medicare and Medicaid 50 years ago this week told the country their programs would bring. The "Great Society" was supposed to banish poverty from the land while providing care for the elderly and disabled. Today, over a third of the U.S. population is on Medicare and Medicaid, and federal spending has a tendency to be sucked into the programs' gaping maws. Today, more than quarter of every dollar the federal government spends goes to the two programs. They are also the biggest expense for state governments. But for all that spending, the programs' trust fund is on track to run out of money in 15 years. Meanwhile, the Baby Boomer generation is signing up in droves, and $60 billion is lost every year to waste and fraud. This is not what the programs' architects wanted Americans to think would happen. Fifty years ago, they estimated the programs would cost $12 billion in 1990, but it actually cost the government $90 billion. Another government program, now five years old, also promised to trim health care costs through more government intrusion and regulation. Just wait until nObamaCare turns 10, much less 50.

 Clickbait Crap on the Chattanooga Attack 
Dear Allen West, stop the viral clickbait crap! In our commentary regarding the Islamist assault in Chattanooga on July 16, which cost four Marines and one Navy Petty Officer their lives, we noted that our sources advised there were at least two personal weapons belonging to military personnel recovered at the Reserve Center.
          We also berated the restrictions against such weapons at thousands of similar facilities and recruiting stations, where there are no security personnel. However, we also noted that if any military personnel were in possession of personal weapons, that would be a UCMJ violation and by law, Navy JAG will be obligated to review this case. JAG should not be condemned for doing just that.
          Indeed, Lt. Cmdr. Tim White confirmed that he was in possession of a personal weapon and did return fire — either suppression cover fire to allow his personnel to take cover, or perhaps he fired directly at the assailant.
          Again, by law, this would be subject to review — and that has been understood from the moment personal weapons were recovered, despite the fact they were used for self-defense. In the absence of those weapons, there may have been many more casualties. There are a number of ways White can be absolved — clearly many bases were on elevated security status at the time of the attack, and maybe he can be credited with taking personal initiative in this case. Perhaps he has a legal carry permit in Tennessee and JAG can dismiss further action on that basis.
          Unfortunately, my colleague Allen West has taken it upon himself to short circuit that review — knowing full well the review will have to take place. West has trumpeted what we all already knew! Obviously there is a constitutional obligation to review this case. West distributed an email claiming insider information that the Navy was going to prosecute White — typical of the viral clickbait claims too often circulated among some conservative quarters. In fact, West's sensationalist claim could create more problems for White than it solves.
          Contrary to West's assertions, the Navy has released a statement indicating that they have not charged White, have not prepared charges against White, and are a long way from making any such determination about this tragedy.   -The Patriot Post

 Did Garland Jihadist Get a Gun Through Fast and Furious? 
When Nadir Soofi attacked the Muhammad art show in Garland, Texas, he may have used a gun the federal government allowed to walk into his hands as part of the infamous Fast and Furious sting. Eric Holder's Justice Department let American guns float into the hands of Mexican cartels in hopes of tracking the guns through their serial numbers. Instead of an effective crackdown on organized crime, however, the DOJ has the blood of hundreds of Mexicans and at least two American agents on its hands. In 2010, the Islamic terrorist bought a 9mm handgun at Lone Wolf Trading Co. (ironic name, no?), one of the businesses where the ATF was running the sting. While Soofi said he wanted the gun to protect his pizza restaurant, he had a previous criminal record. The Feds placed Soofi's purchase on a seven-day hold, but mysteriously the hold was cleared after 24-hours. The FBI has not released the serial numbers of the weapons Soofi used. In July, Barack nObama told an interviewer, "One area where I feel that I've been most frustrated and most stymied it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws." Here's a common-sense idea: Uphold the laws that, when enforced, keeps guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists. Meanwhile, to date, no one has been held to account for Fast and Furious.

 What's the Difference Between a Democrat and a Socialist? 
It may only happen once in a blue moon, but MSNBC's Chris Matthews asked a good question. Speaking with DNC Chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Matthews wanted to know if Bernie Sanders, a self-declared Socialist, would get a prime speaking slot at the Democrat Convention when he loses the nomination to Hilly Clinton. Schultz said he would, which surprised Matthews. "What's the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist?" he asked. "I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?" All Wasserman Schultz could do is spin it to the question she wanted to answer — the difference between Democrats and Republicans. (And even that boiled down to "Democrats love everyone, but Republicans hate everything.") She couldn't answer because there is no difference between Democrats and Socialists. As American author Upton Sinclair wrote in 1951 to perennial Socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas, "The American People will take Socialism, but they won't take the label." That's why Democrats have adopted the platform but not the name, and it's why the question left Wasserman Schultz stammering.   -The Patriot Post

 The bold, untold way to fix Washington 'monstrosity'  
{Bob Unruh} ~ The Washington elite in recent weeks have destroyed traditional marriage across America, have redefined English words to save nObamacare, have proposed regulations... that could put your backyard under inspections by the EPA, have pulled off a deal critics say will grant the rogue Islamists in Iran nuclear weapons and more. Too much more even to list. How would you like to see a process to reverse those decisions? To TELL Washington what i’s actually going to do. Think that’s an impossible dream? Just check out Article 5. Officials with Convention of States, a project of the Citizens for Self-Government, say the U.S. Constitution already provides a solution that gives citizens of the U.S. a way to bypass Congress, decide what direction the nation to go and then announce marching orders.

 Who Is Destroying the Palestinian Dream?  
{Khaled Abu Toameh} ~ The Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, which Palestinians hope will one day become part of a future Palestinian state, is quickly sliding toward anarchy and chaos... Since its violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2007, Hamas has maintained a tight grip on the area, home to some 1.7 million Palestinians. But now Hamas's totalitarian rule over the Gaza Strip seems to be nearing its end, as the Islamist movement faces increased challenges from various militias and groups in the area. Some of Hamas's rivals belong to more radical terror groups such as the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda-affiliated militias created by salafi-jihadis inside the Gaza Strip. Others belong to the secular Fatah faction, whose members continue to dream of the day when they will be able to topple the Hamas regime and regain control over the Gaza Strip.       http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/6214/palestinian-dream

 How We Got Into Such a Bad Nuclear Deal with Iran  
{Lt. Col. James G. Zumwalt} ~ Last week, Congress kicked off hearings for its 60-day review of President Barack nObama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Despite Administration assurances-given even before the agreement was concluded-Congress would have this review time... nObama rushed the deal to judgment at the U.N. to bind the U.S. internationally before congressional review could be undertaken. The chief negotiator of an agreement that abandons America’s seven decade-long policy of non-proliferation and violates nObama’s numerous promises to block a nuclear-armed Iran is Secretary of State hanoi John Kerry. In addition to playing the U.N. card, hanoi Kerry is playing the war card with Congress. Both cards seek to hide the real deal. Congressional review needs to include examining the historical context of how we got into negotiating such a bad one.        http://www.aim.org/guest-column/how-we-got-into-such-a-bad-nuclear-deal-with-iran/?utm_source=AIM+-+Daily+Email&utm_campaign=email073115&utm_medium=email

 Hilly Clinton’s Lawyer has her Classified Emails on a Thumb Drive  
{Frank Camp} ~ On Friday, the Clinton campaign released a cache of tax records going back to 2007, as well as a letter from Hilly Clinton’s doctor, saying she’s perfectly healthy. Almost simultaneously, yet another round of Clinton emails were released by the State Department... Fox News reports that 37 of the emails were at least partially redacted in the interest of national security. “Under 18 USC 1924 the unlawful removal and storage of classified information is described as when a person ‘knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location.’ The law sets punishment of a fine or prison term of ‘not more than one year.'” Is the thumb drive in violation of the law? Clinton defenders are saying that Clinton’s attorney has a security clearance, and has been briefed in the proper methods of handling classified material. Detractors are crying foul, and calling the backup copy comparable to Petraeus’ black notebooks. Why didn't Hilly give all of her email to the State Depart rather securty issues to her attorney. Something smells fishy here.    http://www.ijreview.com/2015/08/382740-hillary-clinton-prosecuted-simple-thumb-drive/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=owned&utm_campaign=morning-newsletter

 Hilly’s Transparency Problem  
{David Freddoso} ~ Arguably the most famous story about Winston Churchill’s wit pertains to an exchange he had with an outspoken Labour MP named Bessie Braddock... She berated him for being intoxicated: “Winston, you are drunk,” she said. “And what’s more, you are disgustingly drunk.” Churchill’s immortal reply: “My dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober, and you will still be disgustingly ugly.” here is some controversy as to whether this exchange actually occurred as described here, but either way it is now one of Churchill’s most famous quotations. It also describes the state of the two parties in U.S. politics at this moment.

 Climate Models Fail to Predict Actual Climate  
{Leslie Eastman} ~ Environmental activists have relied heavily on computer models to predict climate patterns confirming their notion that mankind is toxic... However, recent studies have shown models have failed to consider real world conditions in their calculations. The new desert study concludes that more study is needed…of course. Many of the comments in the desert piece focus on the replacement of the technical name “carbon dioxide” with the word “carbon”. This switch is misleading, as the former co-founder of Greenpeace and climate scare-science skeptic, Dr. Patrick Moore, discusses in the following Prager University video: Moore derides climate models in an wonderful article for Heartland, and he asserts that human emissions have been beneficial:        http://legalinsurrection.com/2015/08/climate-models-fail-to-predict-actual-climate/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LegalInsurrection+%28Le%C2%B7gal+In%C2%B7sur%C2%B7rec%C2%B7tion%29

 nObama's effort to polish climate legacy faces battle from GOP  
{Zack Colman} ~ President nObama wants his signature climate change regulation to be a hallmark of his White House legacy. But whether the rule, which will be finalized Monday, will remain intact won't be decided until after his presidency as Republicans and the energy industry try to kill it through legislation and the courts...  For now, the emissions rules for power plants that nObama will announce at a Rose Garden ceremony Monday afternoon represents a high point for his presidency's environmental credentials. Environmental allies, who challenged nObama early in his presidency to act on the climate after a sweeping cap-and-trade bill collapsed in the Senate, quickly praised the effort, though some contended the regulation didn't go far enough considering the United States has met nearly half the final rule's goal of slashing electricity emissions nationwide 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. The rest of the roughly 17 percent of emissions the U.S. power sector must cut to meet the mark will be met largely by imposing limits that will shift the power sector away from coal, which provides about 39 percent of the nation's electricity, and toward renewable energy and natural gas.        http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/obamas-effort-to-polish-climate-legacy-faces-battle-from-gop/article/2569443?custom_click=rss

 U.S. Banned Knowing Details of Iran Nuclear Inspection Agreement  
{Adam Kredo} ~ Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the nuclear inspection organization is barred from revealing to the United States any details of deals... it has inked with Tehran to inspect its contested nuclear program going forward, according to regional reports. Recent disclosures by Iran indicate that the recently inked nuclear accord includes a series of side deals on critical inspections regimes that are neither public nor subject to review by the United States. Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador and permanent envoy to the IAEA, stated over the weekend that no country is permitted to know the details of future inspections conducted by the IAEA. In addition, no U.S. inspectors will be permitted to enter Iran’s nuclear sites. This is and one reason to vote against this deal with Iran.         http://freebeacon.com/national-security/iran-u-s-banned-from-knowing-details-of-iran-nuke-agreement/

 Disinfo Prep For Next Step In Invasion –“Refugee Release”  
{rickwells.us} ~ Fidel Castro’s nephew, Jose “The Cyclops” Diaz-Balart, somehow just happened to land a position with the major Spanish Language network Telemundo as well as the nObama mouthpiece MSBNC... Those things don’t just happen. Recognizing the high probability that forces behind Castro, Mexico and nObama share common interests, the conversation that takes place in this interview can be viewed in better context. The presentation is not a news person interviewing an actual Congressman. This is a situation where two political operatives who are engaged in promoting the same agenda conduct a pretend interview as the means of presenting their propaganda in advance of the next stage of the invasion. Gutierrez represents illegals, not the people of Illinois, and Balart is an agitator for the Latino invasion. The goal appears to be to set the stage for more DHS illegality under the perpetual false pretense of humanitarian needs, this time the release of illegals being detained while they await phony refugee hearings. Gutierrez is supposedly lobbying the regime and has already visited a facility, arranging for the release of hundreds of invaders.

 Adm Ace Lyons: Reject Iran Deal then Impeach hanoi Kerry &nObama 
{rickwells.us} ~ Retired Admiral Ace Lyons addressed the thousands in attendance at the “Stop Iran Now” Rally on July 22nd in New York City. Lyons delivered a no nonsense assessment of what has taken place in the nObama regime’s dealings with Iran... and offers some equally direct suggestions as to what now needs to happen. Lyons opens by saying, “Never in my lifetime did I believe I would witness this great country of ours being taken down and withdrawn from our world leadership by our own administration; unbelievable. And when it comes to Iran, I’ve been chasing those guys for over thirty-five years.” He goes on to describe the many times he “had the planes loaded” to wipe them out, but each time, regardless of whether there was a Republican or Democrat in the White House, they all failed. Lyons said, “They failed because we were sabotaged from within.” He includes the current Iran agreement in that number, saying, “This agreement is another example of sabotage from within. It is a total sellout. Of course, that doesn’t bother the likes of Secretary hanoi Kerry because this is the second time he’s sold out his country.”

Planned Parenthood's Mammogram Lie

     {townhall.com} ~ The gruesome hits keep coming for the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood. President nObama and his top health officials have one last-ditch response left: Quick, hide behind the imaginary mammogram machine!
.
     As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood's for-profit aborted baby parts racket emerge thanks to the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress, desperate Democrats are in full deflection mode. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood this week by invoking the women's health shield. "What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms," Burwell told the House Education and Workforce Committee.
.
     Just one teeny, tiny problem with this defense: It's a completely calculated fabrication.
.
     The breast-cancer screening charade casts Planned Parenthood as a life-saving provider of vital health services unavailable anywhere else. You may recall that during the 2012 presidential cycle, nObama himself falsely claimed during a debate that the abortion provider administers mammograms to "millions" of women -- and liberal CNN moderator Candy Crowley let him get away with it.
.
     On cue, Hollywood activists Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington all attacked the GOP ticket for wanting to "end" funding for "cancer screenings" by cutting off government subsidies for Planned Parenthood's bloody billion-dollar abortion business. _The celebrities in the White House and Tinseltown took their script straight from Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, who purported to speak for countless women for whom Planned Parenthood is "the only way" they can gain access to mammograms. __(If the name sounds familiar, Nucatola is the same wine-swishing Josephine Mengele who was exposed on tape by the Center for Medical Progress two weeks ago lolling through a business lunch negotiating payments for aborted baby parts.)
.
Once again, it was undercover pro-life journalists who unmasked the truth.
.
     An investigation of 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 different states, conducted by pro-life group Live Action, confirmed that the abortion provider does not perform breast-cancer screenings. "We don't provide those services whatsoever," a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona confessed on tape.
.
     Planned Parenthood's Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kan., admitted: "We actually don't have a, um, mammogram machine at our clinics."
.
     Even the liberal Washington Post doled out a three (out of four) Pinocchio rating for the White House's mammogram lies. "The problem here is that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms or even possess the necessary equipment to do so," the paper's resident fact-checker reported. "As such, the organization certainly does not 'provide' mammograms in the strict sense. Instead, its clinics provide referrals and direct low-income women toward resources to help pay for the procedure. These services are by no means unique to Planned Parenthood. In fact, the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society provide them, as well."
.
     As I've pointed out previously, Planned Parenthood's purported "referral services" to outside mammogram facilities are negligible -- especially given the widespread availability of these and other free and low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening services across the country supported by both private and public grants.
.
     Reluctant to do its job and just call out the president as an outright liar, The Washington Post fell short of giving nObama the full four-Pinocchio treatment for his Planned Parenthood mammogram propagandizing, but acknowledged that he has repeated the lies "too many times in one form or another for this to be considered just playing with words to generate a misleading impression."
.
     The nObama HHS apparently needs to be reminded of its own review exposing the mammography deception. In June 2012, the agency responded to a request for information about how many Planned Parenthood clinics were certified to operate mammogram facilities. "Our search did not find any documents pertinent to your request," HHS told the Alliance Defense Fund.
.
Zip. Zilch. None. Nada.
.
     Pro-life investigative journalist Lila Rose of Live Action has it right: "It is an alarming dereliction of duty that the Secretary of Health and Human Services refuses to view investigative reports that clearly demonstrate that Planned Parenthood, who receives close to half a million taxpayer dollars a year from the federal government, is engaged in the selling and trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit," she said this week. "Ms. Burwell should be investigating Planned Parenthood, not covering for them."
.
     Ladies, open your eyes and hearts. Watch the videos for yourselves. Get the facts. Unmask the lies. The cackling profiteers of Planned Parenthood don't care about your breasts. They're too busy putting price tags on the baby hearts, livers, lungs and limbs swirling around in bloody pie plates, stacked in their "research" labs, subsidized with your tax dollars and sold to the highest bidders. For "preventative care," of course.
