Dem Admits Real Goal of Healthcare Reform!

At a speech on April 18, 2009 at a rally for healthcare reform in Chicago, Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) admitted that a strategic objective of the Obama healthcare reform plan is to destroy the private health insurance industry.

Wake up, America, unless you desire living in the Union of Soviet States of America.

If you think healthcare is expensive now, just wait until it’s free!

Terrorist Prosecutor Turns Down White House Offer to Give "Advice"

As Yoo and Bybee have found out, giving advice that’s later framed as ‘bad,’ can land you in legal trouble. That’s why Andy Mc Carthy said, no thanks,

I’m a lawyer who’s been asked to give advice to the government by an administration that says such advice could lead to criminal investigation and professional discipline. And although the advice I would give is firmly rooted in the laws of war, and was reaffirmed by the Supreme Court in the 2004 Hamdi decision, this administration regards such detention as running afoul of the rule of law. Thus, as I wrote to the attorney general:

Given your policy of conducting ruinous criminal and ethics investigations of lawyers over the advice they offer the government, and your specific position that the wartime detention I would endorse is tantamount to a violation of law, it makes little sense for me to attend the Task Force meeting. After all, my choice would be to remain silent or risk jeopardizing myself.

Whatever Happened To Selecting The Best?

With the news of the planned retirement of Justice David H. Souter, B HO now has the privilege of selecting a replacement for his lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court, our highest law in the land.

Those nominated for this seat should be the best and the brightest our country has to offer since their position is a lifetime appointment and it falls upon them to properly interpret our laws and constitution in legal matters.

That makes it all the more preposterous to read in today’s Washington Post, “The list is heavy with women and minorities, because the last three justices confirmed to the court were white men.”

Even more incredulous in that statement is how the leftist reacted to the nominations of women and minorities made by President Bush, one prominent United States Senator referring to them as “neanderthals.”

And now, they have the audacity to complain, “the last three justices confirmed to the court were white men?”

Missing from the list of possibilities is Federal Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a Black woman nominated for federal judge by President Bush and who Democrats fought and opposed for over two years!

Oregon Mexican Swine Flu Schizophrenia: Western Oregon University CLOSED; Thousands (?) of Mexico Citizens Rally in Salem & PDX

When Eric the Great (producer of the Victoria Taft Show heard 5-8pm on KPAM 860) called Governor Kulo’s office yesterday to ask about swine flu, he was met with a dismissive and rude attitude by a “communications” clerk. I guess it was because Eric asked the question that dare not be asked, namely,
“Will the Governor consider calling off the May Day protest at the capitol due to swine flu concerns?” Considering that the yearly protest rally in which students are bused in from Woodburn and Mexican nationals and citizens of other Latin American countries collect on the steps en mass, we figured there might be a wee bit of concern that the MEXICAN SWINE FLU virus might easily be passed along. Uh, no. However, mere moments after we called, the Governor dispatched a helpful statement saying he would do everything in his power to stop the spread of the disease…yada, yada… Everything, it seems, except do the politically incorrect thing and call off a rally of illegal aliens from Mexico.
We asked the acting state epidemiologist on the show yesterday afternoon if she were concerned about the large collection of people from Mexico swapping germs in close quarters and she said it’s a little safer outside, but if there are any [illegal aliens] going to the event who are sick they should stay home. We think they should stay home until they’re citizens, too, but that’s another matter.
Last night, however, the concern about MEXICAN SWINE FLU was enough to prompt the Health Department and head of W
ESTERN OREGON UNIVERSITY to SHUT DOWN CAMPUS until May 4th.


Western Oregon University is closing campus this evening, Thursday, April 30th through Monday, May 4th, based on recommendations from the Oregon Health Dept. A probable case of the H1N1 virus (swine flu) has been found on campus. For updates or more information, go to www.wou.edu or call closure line 503-838-8026.

Color us confused. If this disease is not enough of a concern to close down the collection of illegal aliens from Mexico on the capitol steps, then why is it of such a great concern to close down WOU campus? There’s only ONE possible case on campus, isn’t there? What do you think the odds are of there being one possible case of swine flu on the capitol steps and in Portland today? I’d say the odds are very good. Maybe the illegal aliens will do the right thing, however, and, if they feel sick, they’ll stay home because it’s the right thing to do. Oh, wait.
You know, if I were a professional protester from SEIU and the other unions who get paid for these gigs, I’d ask for time and a half.
