Thursday night on Fox News, Charles Krauthammer predicted that it would only take “a couple more cases like Mr. Duncan” flying to the United States from West Africa with Ebola for the president to back down from his no travel ban position.
But if Judicial Watch’s sources are correct, Obama’s open door policy for people coming from Ebola infected countries, may creak open a little wider to allow the transfer of non-US citizens infected with the disease into the country for treatment.
It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
The plan – which may not even be legal – has been kept from Congress even though it should require the approval of Congress.

From Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jundal:
“Consider the Prevention and Public Health Fund, a new series of annual mandatory appropriations created by Obamacare. Over the past five years, the CDC has received just under $3 billion in transfers from the fund. Yet only 6 percent—$180 million—of that $3 billion went toward building epidemiology and laboratory capacity. Especially given the agency’s postwar roots as the Communicable Disease Center, one would think that “detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats” warrants a larger funding commitment.
Instead, the Obama administration has focused the CDC on other priorities. While protecting Americans from infectious diseases received only $180 million from the Prevention Fund, the community transformation grant program received nearly three times as much money—$517.3 million over the same five-year period.
The CDC’s website makes clear the objectives of community transformation grants. The program funds neighborhood interventions like “increasing access to healthy foods by supporting local farmers and developing neighborhood grocery stores,” or “promoting improvements in sidewalks and street lighting to make it safe and easy for people to walk and ride bikes.” Bike lanes and farmer’s markets may indeed help a community—but they would do little to combat dangerous diseases like Ebola, SARS or anthrax.”

Amendment 2, which allows for more widespread use of medical marijuana in Florida, is being hotly debated. Until recently the polls seemed to indicate a majority of voters in favor of the initiative but that support appears to be slipping in these final weeks leading up to election day.

“Disgusting that the President is still devoting more time to political fundraising than attending to his greatest responsibility, the protection of Americans.”
“I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:8
The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse as named in Revelation are Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.
It is an apt metaphor for what is occurring in America today. Ebola is now raging in several African nations, Liberia, Sierra Leon, Guinea, and Nigeria.
On September 30 the first African to make it to the U.S. with Ebola was identified. By October 8 he was dead. Ebola has arrived and, despite everything that the various agencies of the Obama Administration are telling us—the Centers for Disease Control and Homeland Security—I have no confidence it will not keep arriving.

We all know that we do not have a free market economy and certainly not in healthcare. For various reasons the demand for healthcare services will grow quickly in the next decade yet there are a group of individuals who have total control on how these needs will be met. No, not just the Feds but your State Legislatures with something called a Certificate Of Need (CON). Anyone wanting to build a hospital or a variety of other health related businesses must ask for permission and it is up to the legislation to give it to them. Sure seems like a comfy set up for a little crony capitalism.
Luckily back in the 1980′s Florida Governor Martinez refused to mandate that Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) needed a Certificate Of Need (much to the anger of hospitals) and as such there are now over 400 ASC’c providing needed services to Floridians. Yet there are still CON’s for other parts of the healthcare industry.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn’t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, “Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare.”
Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their “last contribution” to society likely occurred more than a decade ago.
The phrase “the banality of evil” gets bandied about a lot. Emanuel’s column, which in reality is a public service announcement meant to begin a debate about the way in which we prioritize healthcare, takes the prize in that department. Read more at breitbart.com.

With the overwhelmingly bipartisan vote for the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, Congress passed the most significant reforms to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in decades. And, right on cue, here come the grumblings from the second-guessers.
As the bill was on its way to the president’s desk for signing, the critics stepped up to denounce the $16.3 billion congressional compromise.
For example, guests on a Fox News panel savaged the bill, claiming (implausibly) that it was “designed more for unions than veterans.” Meanwhile, an August 4 Wall Street Journal editorial suggests the additional funding for patient choice means that the “VA is being rewarded for failure.”
The argument is that the new legislation will do nothing more than prop up a failing bureaucracy. This represents a serious misreading of the bill’s key provisions. Read more at: weeklystandard.com.

From Trevor Loudon, staunch defender of liberty:
“How will future generations look back on our gravest national emergency of all time? And how will they regard what their forebears didn’t do about it?
This will include what we didn’t do about border nullification, which collapsed the U.S. as a sovereign nation. What we didn’t do about the alignment of our foreign policy with that of jihad movements, which meant the end of liberty, also life itself, for our best allies. What we didn’t do about the growth of tyranny from corruption and Marxism in this cradle of liberty.”
“But another reason Congress did nothing when it still could was because practically every important conservative declared it was ‘premature’ to follow the former Constitution and impeach the tyrant. No public support for impeachment, they said. What we lacked, though, was a political leader to make the impeachment case and win that public support – or go down trying.”
A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.
In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution. Continue reading at foxnews.com.

In a victory for religious freedom, the Supreme Court ruled today 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. in the case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (formerly named Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby). The case was the strongest legal challenge to Obamacare since 2012.
Justice Alito authored the majority opinion, and Justice Kennedy wrote a concurring opinion. Justice Ginsburg wrote the dissent, joined by Justices Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan. Read more at townhall.com.
Around noon today, May 30th, Pete Hegseth, CEO of Conservative Veterans for America, issued a press release on the resignation of VA chief, Gen. Eric Shinseki:

Hegseth On Shinseki’s Resignation: This Is Only The Beginning
“We need both reform and a reformer.”
Arlington, Va. – In an historic move, President Obama accepted the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Sec. Eric Shinseki, following evidence of widespread patient backlogs and alleged cover-ups by administrators throughout the VA healthcare system.
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) was the first veterans organization to call for Secretary Shinseki to step down, doing so over a year ago. CVA was recently joined by The American Legion—the nation’s largest veterans group—in calling for Shinseki’s resignation.
Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:
“Concerned Veterans for America fully supports President Obama’s decision to accept Sec. Shinseki’s resignation. More importantly, we emphasize that it doesn’t solve the widespread, systemic problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs. In fact, this is only the beginning. We need both reforms and a reformer, which is why it’s essential for Congress to pass systemic reforms at VA in the coming weeks and months, bringing real accountability, transparency, and choice to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The government is failing our veterans; it’s time to get to work fixing VA.”
