The Ghouls Feast

Ghoul - Eater of the DeadJared Lee Loughner’s shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and 19 other people — six of whom were killed, including a 9 year-old girl — in Tucson, AZ on Saturday, January 8, 2010 should have shocked the nation. That, at least would be the normative common consensus about such a brutal and sudden massacre, coming, as it did, without forewarning and leaving so many people dead and/or wounded.

Obviously such shock is part of the innocence that America has lost over the years; it was not in evidence that Saturday. The victims’ bodies hadn’t finished bleeding out, much less grown cold, before the ghouls of the Left were doing their best to capitalize upon the lethal attack.

The Professional Left

Within minutes of Loughner’s attack Liberal pundits and the Left-Wing, “lamestream” media were trying to blame Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sharron Angle, the Tea Party, and American patriots in general for “inciting” the attack with their rhetoric.

These filth didn’t know at that time what had actually happened or who the attacker was, much less what his motivations were but that didn’t stop them from feasting on the fresh corpses for the sake attacking their American rivals.

The Race-Baiters

Right behind the Professional Leftists were the race-baiters, though there is, of course, an overlap between two varieties of ghouls They did, perforce, have to wait until Loughner was identified as being a White. Once he was known to be White though, they dove right into the feast.

This particular breed of domestic enemy was, after establishing the Whiteness of the attacker, was as quick as always to paint the whole incident in racial terms and attempted to tie it into immigration laws even though Giffords was not a proponent of porous and insecure borders.

After that initial spate of anti-Americanism came the Muslims and their shills who jabbered on about how, if Loughner were a Black or Muslim, he’d have been treated differently by the media and would have been called a terrorist as opposed to a murderer.

The Gun-Grabbers

Finally came the ghouls amongst the gun-grabbers, hell-bent on using anything to disarm the law-abiding members of American society. They were last to the feast because they had to wait until the evidence pointed to Loughner attempted assassination of Rep. Giffords being the act of a madman as opposed to a political act.

Zombies from Night of the Living Dead
They Hunger For Blood Of The Innocent

Both Americans and our Liberal and Progressive enemies knew this sort of cynical use of the Tuscon, AZ rampage was going to happen. It’s part and parcel of realpolitik and is firmly embedded in modern ideological warfare.

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste, and what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you didnt think you could do before.

— Rahm Emanuel

What is disgusting is how fast the Leftist ghouls descended on the victims and twisted their deaths and injuries, and the resultant anguish of their loved ones, into agenda-driven political and ideological attacks against America, Americans, and fundamental American values.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama led the nation in a moment of silence Monday morning in honor of the victims of Saturday’s mass shooting in Tucson, AZ. As laudable a symbolic gesture as that was, the nation would have been better off if the Left had held a moment or two of silence on Saturday before starting their macabre orgy.

Complete Lives System

Dr. Ezekiel EmanuelPresident Obama’s White House Health Care policy adviser and brother of Obama’s Chief of Staff and “attack dog,” Rahm Emanuel, has some very disturbing plans for healthcare “reform.” Dr. Emanuel advocates a collectivist system of “merit-based” healthcare services.

In an example of Orwellian TrueSpeak he calls his plan the Complete Lives System.

Dr. Emanuel first published his ideas of merit-based healthcare in the 1996 Hastings Center Report (Volume 26, No. 6) where he declaimed:

This civic republican or deliberative democratic conception of the good provides both procedural and substantive insights for developing a just allocation of health care resources. Procedurally, it suggests the need for public forums to deliberate about which health services should be considered basic and should be socially guaranteed. Substantively, it suggests services that promote the continuation of the polity – those that ensure healthy future generations, ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public deliberations – are to be socially guaranteed as basic. Conversely, services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. A less obvious example is guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason.

You can download the article in PDF format here.

Over the ensuing years Dr. Emanuel fleshed out his plan over the following years and published it in the January, 2009 issue (Volume 373, Issue 9661) of The Lancet. Some excerpts from the article follow:

Some people wrongly suggest that allocation can be based purely on scientific or clinical facts, often using the term medical need. There are no value-free medical criteria for allocation.

~*~

Consideration of the importance of complete lives also supports modifying the youngest-first principle by prioritizing adolescents and young adults over infants. Adolescents have received substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants, by contrast, have not yet received these investments. Similarly, adolescence brings with it a developed personality capable of forming and valuing long-term plans whose fulfillment requires a complete life.

~*~

When implemented, the complete lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.

~*~

Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years. Treating 65-year-olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist; treating them differently because they have already had more life-years is not.

~*~

Accepting the complete lives system for health care as a whole would be premature. We must first reduce waste and increase spending.

The complete article in PDF format, entitled, Principles for allocation of scarce medical interventions, can be downloaded here.

Dr. Emanuel’s Complete Lives methodology of applying his interpretation of both allocative and distributive justice to healthcare is put forth in the context of having scarce medical resources available. That’s an important consideration when reviewing his Complete Lives proposal; it is not meant to address the allocation and distribution of readily available and plentiful medical resources, only scarce ones. It is a two-tiered system divided between basic (guaranteed) and discretionary (not guaranteed) medical services. Some citizens will receive only basic services while others will receive both basic and some discretionary health services.

So we have to take Dr. Emanuel’s ideas in the context in which they were set, which makes them somewhat less monstrous and horrific than some of the commentary on the subject would have you believe.

That being said, one of the oft-stated goals of President Obama’s healthcare “reform” was to reduce costs and the amount of America’s GDP being spent on healthcare. That certainly implies that money – tax dollars or deficit dollars – will essentially be a medical resource. This could very easily create the sort scarcity that would call Dr. Emanuel’s bio-ethical philosophies into play. Dr Emanuel is, after all, a special advisor to the Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget for health policy. He would definitely be consulted on streamlining expenditures.

How does that you feel? It definitely makes my skin crawl more than a little bit. There are just too many ways that Dr. Emanuel’s particular twist on eugenics could be quietly and on-legislatively introduced into any government ran healthcare system for me to be comfortable with the idea.

The Maggots Rejoice

On Friday, June 26, 2006, the vote for the abomination and act of treason euphemistically called the American Clean Energy Security Act passed on the House floor by a narrow margin of a mere seven votes. The final House vote was 219-212.

Despite the Herculean patriotic efforts of Republican leader, John A. Boehner (R-OH), and despite 43 Democrats proving that at least some of their Party aren’t traitors by voting against this destructive legislation, the Liberals in the House of Representatives managed to push this America destroying piece of filth though.

Despite the fact that, at literally the very last minute – 3:09 AM, Friday, June 26, 2006 – and with no time for any sort of review, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) added a 300+ page amendment to the already 1000+ page bill, the Leftist maggots feasting on the fresh corpse of America got their Cap & Tax bill through the House.

Jackass Liberals Enjoy Destroying Uncle Sam with Cap & Tax
Happy Liberals – They’ve been waiting so long to destroy America

This abomination – Obamanation really, since President Obama and his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel used every trick of Chicago politics to get it passed – largely because 8 Republicans proved themselves to be enemies of both Party and Nation by voting in favor of this evil, anti-American bill.

Changing America

During his campaign to become the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama repeated claimed that he wanted to change America, a country that he found to be fundamentally flawed – though he professes to love it. It seems that President Obama has concocted a methodology for doing this.

Hidden behind all the hoopla over President Obama and his democrats’ ill-considered Stimulus Bill is a quiet but significant attempt to consolidate power within the hands of White House personnel and change the very makeup of America and its representation in its government.

Rahm Emanuel - Son of a terrorist, democrats' partisan pitpull, White House Chief of StaffPresident Obama wants to place the U.S. Census Bureau under the direct control of the White House, specifically his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel. This would allow President Obama to control the very shape and formation of America, or at least how it is reported.

That would certainly allow President Obama to enact fundamental changes to our nation.

This is important and should not be ignored by the MSM or the American people. The US Census is critically important to the very fabric our how our nation operates.

With all of its political implications, hijacking the Census from the Commerce Dept. and letting it be run out of Rahm’s office is like putting PETA in charge of issuing hunting permits.

All DeLay did was rearrange the deck chairs. This would allow Rahm to redesign the whole ship affecting everything from congressional districts to who and where eligible S-CHIP children, adults and ‘poor’ rich people live.

— Anonymous Senior Republican Senate Aide
Interview with The Sleuth

With the 2010 census on the horizon, it’s highly probable that Obama and Emanuel will attempt to redraw congressional districts so that they are assured a Democrat majority in Congress for the foreseeable future. The census also determines how almost all federal and state programs are funded.

Also, given the fact that senior White House officials announced that the census director would report directly to the White House in response to Black and Hispanic leaders complaining about Commerce Secretary-nominee Judd Gregg, there may be additional darker motivations for placing the U.S. Census Bureau under the control of the White House instead of the Commerce Department.

Sadly but not surprisingly, the MSM media outlet to cover this “coup” was FOX News. The rest of them are apparently to interested in being President Obama’s propaganda corps to do their jobs as long ago those jobs were envisioned to be done.

An Umbrella for Israel

It is reported that President-elect Obama plans upon taking office in January to extend the United States’ nuclear umbrella to Israel. Obama intends to sign a strategic defense pact with Israel that would mandate that any nuclear attack by Iran upon Israel would result in a a “devastating U.S. nuclear response.”

Of course when I say “it is reported,” I mean it is reported by numerous international news sources, not by the American MSM – with the sole exception at this point of Fox News.

I’m not sure why this alleged – probable is a better term – action on the part of Obama is cause for surprise or concern. Obama’s administration’s defense of Israel and countering Iran should have been an wholly expected course of event.

Obama has so far seemingly taken great pains to stock his incoming administration with Zionists and possibly Islamaphobic “Hawks.”

I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist.

— VP-elect Joseph Biden
2007 interview with Shalom TV

~*~

I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran (if it attacks Israel)

In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.

— Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
2007 interview with Good Morning America

Then there’s Obama incoming White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel. Rahm Emanuel is the son of Benjamin M. Emanuel who was an Irgun (HaIrgun HaTzva’i HaLe’umi BeEretz Yisra’el or National Military Organization in the Land of Israel) terrorist who regularly took part in attacks civilian targets (both Arab and the British) in the 1940s.

Rahm is the namesake of Rahamim, a combatant in the Zionist Lehi (Lohamei Herut Israel or Fighters for the Freedom of Israel) terrorist faction who was killed. His family name, Emanuel was adopted by his family in 1933, after Rahms paternal uncle, Emanuel Auerbach, was killed in a skirmish with Arabs in the holy city Jerusalem.

In 1991, during the 1st Gulf War, Rahm Emanuel left America and volunteered with the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). During the war he performed noncombat duties at an Israeli supply and repair depot.

All in all, by his choices of the people who will surround him and advise him Obama has made it quite clear that he will maintain the strong and uncritical alliance that has continued for decades between America and Israel.

I’m not sure of why the bulk of the Liberal MSM has so far decided not to cover this. It’s newsworthy, but hardly shocking – except to the anti-Israel – sometimes but not always antisemitic – fringe of the Left, many of whom saw Obama as hope for ending America’s support for Israel.

Even if – possibly especially if – Israel’s claims of this pending “nuclear umbrella” are partially or totally false, I would think that their claiming of it as fact and citing a what would have to be classed as yet another leak in the Obama team would be worthy of reporting.
