Obama nominee for Surgeon General says banning guns is part of medicine

After being burned by his nomination of Debo Adegbile to head up the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, President Obama has jumped right back into the fray with another radical nominee, this time for Surgeon General.

But what makes Vivek Hallegere Murthy such a controversial choice for the post is not what you might expect. It’s not that he is a champion of late-term abortions (though he probably is) or believes in fully government-subsidized sex reassignment surgeries (though he probably does).

The problem with Murthy, rather, is his position on guns. Namely, he thinks one of the questions doctors should ask patients during a routine medical history is whether the person has any guns in his home.

Investors.com notes that Murthy, 36, is president and co-founder of Doctors for America, an anti-gun group that advocates making gun control a facet of the practice of medicine.

His group, which has been dubbed “Docs vs. Glocks,” has pushed Congress to ban “assault” weapons and “high-capacity” magazines.

He also wants to spend more tax dollars on more research to prove that fewer guns mean a lower crime rate, despite the fact that a number of reputable studies prove the opposite.

In a preliminary hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, Sen. Lamar Alexander asked Murthy about his social media comments on firearms, such as a tweet before the 2012 presidential election that included the odd claim that “guns are a health care issue.”

Murthy’s Twitter timeline is full of his anti-firearms screeds. A tweet from December 2012 reads, “NRA press conference disappointing but predictable — blame everything in the world except guns for the Newtown tragedy. #wakeup.”

Like so many gun control zealots, Murthy ignores the fact that mass shootings such as the one at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., occur in so-called gun-free zones where the only armed individual is the predator.

One especially troubling aspect of Murthy’s view that doctors should counsel their patients against exercising their Second Amendment rights is that such information entered into a patient’s private medical records would be available to the government under Obamacare

UK BBC TV License OMG!!!

This is as bad as the overzealous cops in the USA.  There is now a move on in the UK to make the TV license a civil rather than a criminal matter.  But look at what the BBC has been doing over the years.  I have included an article from Sky News as well as a couple of You Tube Videos.  Please let me know what you think.  Andrew

These videos is a good overview of the problem

More Videos of how the TV License works can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/uktvcool?feature=watch

TV licence dodgers may no longer face prosecution in the courts under new plans being considered by the Government.

Justice Secretary Chris Grayling says “serious work” on the plan is under way, with more than 100 cross-party MPs in support.

“The Culture Secretary (Maria Miller) and I both agree that this is a really interesting idea, particularly given the pressure on our courts system,” Mr Grayling told The Daily Telegraph.

“Our departments will be doing some serious work on the proposal.”

Efforts to change the law are being spearheaded by Tory MP Andrew Bridgen.

He said that for some cash-strapped families, the current law was “criminalising them for being poor”.

“It is outrageous that so many people are brought into the criminal justice system through this means. I believe that non-payment should be treated in the way that parking tickets are,” Mr Bridgen told the newspaper.

“It is absurd that the courts are being clogged up by such a minor offence.”

Offenders currently face a £1,000 fine and a criminal record, as well as possible time in jail if fines are not paid.

Some 180,000 people faced magistrates last year after being accused of not paying the £145.50 fee, accounting for in excess of one in 10 of all criminal prosecutions.

Of those, 155,000 people were convicted and fined.

The proposed changes could see dodging payment of the TV licence become a civil matter, with a fine set by the Government.

A BBC spokesman said: “Legislation is a matter for the Government. However, changing the law could lead to higher evasion. Just a 1% increase in evasion would lead to the loss of around £35m, the equivalent of around 10 BBC Local Radio stations.”

This is an example of pathetic journalism as well as the scene from Caddyshack which fits it perfectly.  Please let me know what you think.  Andrew

‘Are you drunk?’ Wasserman Schultz whines, claims newly-delayed Obamacare is ‘working’ [video]

Originally posted on Twitchy:

The answer? Years and years of practice.

Earlier this afternoon, the House held its 50th Obamacare repeal vote, voting 250 to 160 in favor of a one-year delay on the individual mandate penalty. And that really, really stuck in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s craw:

The nerve of those Republicans (and 27 Democrats), trying to “undermine” a law as pure and solid as Obamacare! Don’t they know it’s “working”?

General Alexander Wants To Controll The Press – Here Comes The Judge Napolitano – The Independents

This is a good Interview with Judge Andrew Napolitano on Freedom of the Press and Ed Snowden.  My first question on the whole issue is how could Snodwen done such extensive damage to the NSA since some of the information disclosed by Snowden was already known.  In my opinion, Snoweden just elaborated on what had been disclosed by William Binney and Thomas Drake.

I have included two examples of interviews with William Binney and Thomas Drake that were filmed in 2012.

<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/68196371″>Look at What They did to Mr Drake</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/user14423120″>Andrew Hagle</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

We seriously need to change the way we classify information in the US Government.   We need to protect our journalists including but not limited to Domestic Main Line Journalists, Bloggers, and Foreign Journalists including bloggers.  We also need to only prosecute persons for espionage when classified information is disclosed to a journalist if there was an  actual loss of life (proven to very high standard).  And that the only way that the enemy could have obtained the damaging information was though that particular leak.

Please let me know what you think.  Blessings Andrew

Our encounter one week earlier with an UNLAWFUL police officer:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uipObT…

We saw the a OC Sheriff car pull up so we all took out our camera-phones right away, anticipating trouble. This officer gets out of his car, waves to us, and walks right over. He shakes all of our hands, introduces himself, and states his purpose for walking over to us. (Somebody got scared and called).

He never asked us to disarm, never threatened us, never asked for our names or identification. I think I can speak for everyone in the group that it was an honor to meet this man. Thisis what we need to see from police officers everywhere!

THIS MAN IS A HERO
