Idiot’s Corner

Once more this Texas Turkey is opening his mouth and dumb is falling out. Back when he was doing the Nightly Fables he used to sign off with “Courage”. That translated into “Bullshit”. Yes it’s good old Dan Rather, still babbling after all these years.

Flashback-Dan Rather on Clinton Rape Charge: ‘Happened A Long Time Ago,’ ‘Let’s Move On’

In 1998, Juanita Broaddrick claimed that, in 1978 Bill Clinton, then the Attorney General of Arkansas, raped her in a hotel room. The next year, CBS anchor Dan Rather declared that, even if true, “it happened a long time ago” (21 years) and it was time to “move on.”

Noting the media double-standard in covering such allegations, a Newsbusters flashback blog reports:

“Take, for example, our report in 1999 that not-yet-disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather provided the Exact Opposite of the Matt Dowd philosophy. It was the Don Imus radio show — then simulcast on MSNBC — on February 23, 1999. When women cry rape, it doesn’t matter whether it’s true. It’s too dated for the truth to matter, and besides, we think the American people are tired of all these accusations”:

DON IMUS: Even this Juanita Broaddrick thing that, this interview that the people over there at NBC News have been sittin’ on for some reason, who knows but —

DAN RATHER: Well, I think the reason is pretty obvious that they’re, they don’t call me and tell me why they run or don’t run these things, but I think it’s pretty obvious. They are nervous about, number one, whether this information is accurate, whether it’s really true or not.

And then number two, “Even if it does it turns out to be true, it happened a long time ago and number three, they’ve gotta be figuring maybe, just maybe the American public has heard all they want to hear about this and are saying you know, “Next. Let’s move on to the next thing.”

One can extrapolate this to Al Franken’s funny grope of 2006 too, right? Why not, that occurred in the dim past and why Al is a nice and funny guy and a good Progressive Jackass Party hack. By Dan’s thinking anything more than 20 minutes old is ancient history.

What then Dan, do we do about Roy Moore? That is a bit more than 20 minutes old. We talking about three (3) maybe four (4) decades, considerably more aged than that wanker Willy Clinton’s toiling in the wild oats. And no allegations of rape have emerged either. No sheep, sisters, first cousins or mothers have said boo.

You’re witnessing a political hatch job typical of the Left and abetted by the GOPe.

Just a couple of questions about this Roy Moore blow up in the news. How is it that Moore’s accusers from three decades or more ago are treated as pure as the latest dusting of snow when we know some of them are Democrat campaign workers, one for Hillary’s 2016 criminal run.

When Bill Clinton’s accusers came out in the open, they were treated in the media as trailer trash, a batch of bimbos and worse by Hillary herself. The unbiased media (we know they are, they tell us they are) fawned all over Bill and called Bill’s accusers everything but whores. (I didn’t see that in print at least)

The State Owned Media is leading the Lefty minions in the typical format of accuse, he’s guilty, hang him and then we’ll have a trial. The GOP is going along because they are terrified that Moore is the first of the new wave of voter rejections of establishment clones. The GOP brought this on to themselves; 2018 is going to tell them what the voters think of their record.

If Moore does win his race, and those accusers are found to be fabulists, then what does the GOP do? Moore isn’t going to instantly become buddies with those who tried to trash him and he certainly won’t be voting for McConnell’s oh so wonderful ideas.

Hell, Jerry Lee Lewis married a 13 year old but then he just played the piano, he didn’t run for office.

Open Borders and your Life

You might want to take note of what is happening in England. This is over and beyond the next election which probably will bring the Labor Party to power and an avowed Communist/Marxist to the position of Prime Minister. He stated he will rid the country of capitalism. He might not get a chance.

The open borders of the EU changed the makeup of the local governance.
Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without any entry control.

How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:

  • Mayor of London … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Birmingham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Sheffield …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Luton … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oldham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Rochdale …. MUSLIM

All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:

  • Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
  • Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
  • Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
  • Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
  • Muslim Women…78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Men…63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Families…6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing
  • All UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

The USA and Canada can’t decide on an immigration policy? Maybe this might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war.
Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred.

It’s time for immigration control, or start planning for a very big goodbye to the American way of life!

The Left will do and say anything to convince you that the next best thing since ObamaCare is Single Payer Health Care. You read that right, Government run pig trough style health care. Here is how good it can be.

Oh My: Canadian Doctor Finds Out Her Patient’s Wait Time To See A Neurologist Is Over Four Years

Sen. Bernie Sanders is pushing the single-payer health care initiative hard. The issue has fallen onto the backburner in the news cycle, but the hard left of the Democratic Party wants this—even some wanting to use it as a litmus test regarding candidate support. The more establishment wing is skeptical. In fact, some of President Obama’s former economic adviser feels that this whole push is going to be a total disaster for Democrats. And for good reason: when you tell voters that their current health insurance plans will be cannibalized by Bernie-care—support for Medicare-for-all drops like a rock. The price tag is another issue.

We all know this program is insanely expensive. The Washington Post editorial board noted the high cost; they also noted it would be a train wreck for the working poor. Even Sanders knows this aspect about the cost, which is why he deployed evasive maneuvers when asked about it by NBC News’ Chuck Todd. Even the Canadian doctor who came to D.C. to endorse his single-payer push admitted on the senator’s podcast that socialized medicine creates long wait times. Well, for another Canadian doctor, she is experiencing that aspect firsthand; she had to tell a patient of hers that the wait time to see a neurologist would take over four years. Alas, the wonders of socialism are on display (via CTV News):

An Ontario doctor says health-care wait times have reached “insane” lengths in the province, as one of her patients faces a 4.5-year wait to see a neurologist.

When Dr. Joy Hataley, a family practice anesthetist in Kingston, Ont., recently tried to send a patient to a neurologist at the Kingston General Hospital, she received a letter from the specialist’s office telling her that the current wait time for new patient referrals is 4.5 years.

The letter said that, if the delay is “unacceptable” to Dr. Hataley, she should instead refer the patient to a neurologist in Ottawa or Toronto.

[…]

Dr. Hataley said she’s used to hearing back from specialists who are unable to see her patients for months, and even up to 2.5 years. But a 4.5-year wait is “insane,” she told CTVNews.ca in a telephone interview.

“This is an alarm bell,” she said. “What it is to me is a red flag to the system.”

Dr. Hataley’s patient, Suzan Wooldridge, said that although her case is not urgent, having to wait 4.5 years to see a neurologist is “just wrong.”

You know what else is wrong: government running health care. This is what you get. And besides 150 million health care plans that would be on the chopping block, access to specialized care and treatment will have to be reduced to keep costs down. Oh, and there’s tax increases; everyone’s taxes would go up to cover everyone, while degrading the quality of care. I’m not so sure the electorate would consider that tradeoff palatable. But hey—we can all wait in line and suffer to see the doctor together. Like all good comrades, right?

Good Ole Unca Bernie doesn’t tell you about these parts, NO-NO-NO. These nasty bits are always left out because they sour the treacle and make everyone unhappy with the “Radiant Future”.

Prevaricators

You got some tax cuts! The fat cats got zilch. The class warfare goes on. Happy?
Well drop your panties and grab your ankles because the GOP just lied to you again.

House GOP quietly revises tax bill to tax income at higher rates over time

House Republicans on Friday quietly made changes to their far-reaching tax overhaul: Now its tax cuts would be less generous for many Americans.

A day after the GOP unveiled its plan promising middle-class relief, the House’s top tax-writer, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, released a revised version of the bill that would impose a new, lower-inflation “chained CPI” adjustment for tax brackets immediately instead of in 2023. That means more income would be taxed at higher rates over time — and less generous tax cuts for individuals and families.

The change, posted on the website of the Ways and Means Committee, reduces the value of the tax cuts for ordinary Americans by $89 billion over 10 years compared with the legislation released with fanfare Thursday.

As wages rise, middle-class taxpayers would have more of their income taxed at the 25 percent rate instead of at 12 percent, for instance.

“The bill’s like a dead fish: The more it hangs out in the sunlight, the stinkier it gets,” Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer pronounced after word of Brady’s change. “The more people learn about this bill, the less they’re going to like it.” [snip]

While Mr. Trump and House Republican leaders stand united behind the plan, rank-and-file GOP lawmakers are divided and complaining about its potential blow to homeowners and the loss of a prized deduction that especially hits high-tax states.

And Mr. Trump is pressuring Republicans to repeal a health-care law penalty in the tax rewrite, a step that Brady indicated is politically problematic. Some of the GOP lawmakers agree.

Brady said Friday the president had spoken to him twice by phone and once in person, imploring him to scrap the so-called individual mandate that requires Americans to obtain health insurance or face a penalty.

“The president feels quite strongly about including this at some step,” Brady said in an interview with Politico.

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that repealing the individual mandate would save $416 billion over a decade. That’s because without it, fewer people would enroll in Medicaid or buy federally subsidized coverage on insurance exchanges. The money represents a tempting revenue source for GOP tax writers whose plan for extensive tax cuts would add an estimated $1.5 trillion to the nation’s debt over 10 years. [snip]

We need to call our Representatives and remind them that it isn’t their GODDAMN MONEY. It is our money.

Under the plan, the bulk of the tax cuts go to businesses instead of individuals, according to a budget watchdog group. The Washington-based Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget says corporations and other businesses get tax cuts of about $1 trillion, with the rest for individuals and people inheriting multimillion-dollar estates. [snip]

This corporate tax cut nonsense but the Jackass party is crap. Businesses don’t pay taxes; they pass on to you those costs to you in the price of the product and services. If there is an import tax (duty) n something manufactured in Europe or China, that cost is added to the sale price to the retailer who marks up the item to include all taxes they pay on shipping, fuel, insurance, labor and pass those on to YOU.
Businesses DON’T pay taxes!

“Get real. Don’t tell the middle class this is for them,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi admonished Republicans as she spoke in a press conference. “You’ve set a banquet for the wealthy and corporate America and thrown a few crumbs” to the middle class. “It’s really making suckers of the American people.”

The tax plan also would increase the national debt, a problem for some Republicans.

Death by Sanctuary

You wouldn’t keep a Black Mama or a rabid animal in your home, would you? Perhaps if you’re a Lefty fool, you might give them sanctuary in your home. Why not, you have a proven mental deficiency which is exhibited on a daily basis.

Four examples of what happens when jurisdictions don’t cooperate with ICE

“Sanctuary” policies haven’t kept federal immigration authorities from doing their job, but there have been numerous cases of local jurisdictions refusing to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests.

In some cases, those released have been charged with murder and other crimes.

Sanctuary jurisdictions are cities or counties that have formal policies that prohibit local law enforcement officials from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. [snip]

Major sweep

In late September, ICE announced 498 individuals had been arrested from 42 countries across the United States over a four-day period.

“Operation ‘Safe City’ focused on cities and regions where ICE deportation officers are denied access to jails and prisons to interview suspected immigration violators or jurisdictions where ICE detainers are not honored,” a press release from ICE said.

The operation took place across 10 jurisdictions, with 100, or nearly 20 percent, of the arrests in Los Angeles alone.

According to ICE, some of the offenses included:

In Baltimore, a citizen of El Salvador who entered the U.S. illegally on a fraudulent passport, and was previously charged with attempted murder/conspiracy to commit murder and convicted of first-degree assault. She was previously released from local custody before ICE could assume custody.

· In Boston, a citizen of India who entered the U.S. illegally and who was convicted of indecent assault/battery on a person over 14 and was required to register as a sex offender.

· In Denver, a citizen of Guatemala with lawful permanent legal status who was previously convicted of felony menacing, six DUIs, child abuse, assault, and domestic violence harassment.

· In New York, a citizen of Ecuador with lawful permanent resident status who was previously charged with sexual abuse of a minor and convicted of endangering the welfare of a child, and convicted of sexual abuse of a minor under 14. He was previously released from local custody before ICE could assume custody.

· In San Jose, California, a citizen of Mexico who entered the U.S. on a visa and overstayed that visa for more than 10 years. He was previously convicted of felony possession and purchase of narcotics, possession of a controlled substance for sale, and felony child cruelty with the possibility of injury or death. He was previously released from local custody before ICE could assume custody.

What the transgender lobby doesn’t want you to know about sex reassignment

Sex reassignment is as natural as being born, some in the media tell us. And many Americans are buying it.

But a growing chorus of dissenters made up of physicians, researchers, and even transgender individuals is beginning to paint a far different picture of the truth.

These dissenters are now coming forward to expose just how harmful gender transition and reassignment are—both medically and sociologically speaking.

First, consider recent revelations about how problematic sex reassignment surgery is as a therapy for gender dysphoria.

In an interview with The Telegraph, world-renowned genital reconstructive surgeon Miroslav Djordjevic said that his clinics are experiencing an increase in “reversal” surgeries for those who want their genitalia back. These people express crippling levels of depression and, in some instances, suicidal thoughts. [snip]

A recent Newsweek article takes note of Djordjevic’s concerns, illustrating their legitimacy by pointing to the case of Charles Kane, a man who underwent male-to-female reassignment surgery.

In a BBC interview, Kane explains that he decided to have the initial surgery immediately after having a nervous breakdown. But after having the surgery and identifying as a female named “Sam Hashimi,” Kane soon regretted the decision and went for reversal surgery.

“When I was in the psychiatric hospital,” Kane said, “there was a man on one side of me who thought he was King George and another guy on the other side who thought he was Jesus Christ. I decided I was [a girl named] Sam.”re

Similarly, Claudia MacLean, a transgender woman, is quoted as saying her psychiatrist referred her to a sex reassignment surgeon after having only a 45-minute consultation. “In my opinion,” MacLean said, “what happened to me was all about money.”

Given that clinics charge up to $50,000 for reassignment surgeries, Djordjevic says he fears that doctors are stuffing their bank accounts without concern for the physical and psychological well-being of their patients.

Physical and psychological well-being should be a concern, given that 41 percent of transgender people will attempt suicide at some point in their lives, and people who have had sex reassignment surgery are approximately 20 times more likely than the general population to die by suicide. [snip]

In a recent paper, “Growing Pains: Problems with Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria,” endocrinologist Paul Hruz, biostatistician Lawrence Mayer, and psychiatrist Paul McHugh challenge this practice.

They note that approximately 80 percent of gender-dysphoric children grow comfortable in their bodies and no longer experience dysphoria, and conclude that there is “little evidence that puberty suppression is reversible, safe, or effective for treating gender dysphoria.”

Thus, scientific evidence suggests that hormone-induced puberty suppression is harmful and even abusive.

Finally, gender transitions are problematic for society at large, as revealed in recent debates about restroom usage, military realities, housing policies, and sporting events.

What is often overlooked in these debates is the troublesome and even dangerous situation created when transgendered “females” compete in female athletic competitions. [snip]

Given all this, why do we not see a more constructive and sustained public debate among surgeons, psychiatrists, and lawmakers about the ethics of sex reassignment?

The most significant reason is the power of the transgender lobby.

Consider psychotherapist James Caspain’s recent claim that Bath Spa University in the United Kingdom refused his application to conduct research on sex reversal surgeries because the topic was deemed “potentially politically incorrect.”

According to Caspain, the university initially approved his research proposal, but later rejected it because of the backlash they expected from powerful transgender lobbies.

Regardless of how politically incorrect the evidence may be, and even while we accommodate the privacy and safety concerns of those who identify as transgender, we must also draw a sober and honest conclusion about the human costs of sex reassignment.

The best medical science, social science, philosophy, and theology coalesce. As Heritage Foundation senior research fellow Ryan Anderson puts it, they reveal that sex is a biological reality, that gender is the social expression of that reality, and that sex reassignment surgeries and treatments are therefore not good remedies for the distress felt by people with gender dysphoria.

The most helpful therapies for gender dysphoria, therefore, will be ones that help people live in conformity with the biological truth about their bodies.

More damage and problems have been caused by political correctness than civil strife.
