Hang on a moment...hasn´t Donald Trump
got a point about the NHS failings?

Daily Mail [UK], by STEPHEN GLOVER

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/9/2018 4:09:19 PM

The British are convinced the NHS is the best healthcare system known to man. It is the ultimate sacred cow — to be worshipped and revered and, of course, regularly fed with great wads of cash. So when a few days ago Donald Trump fired off a tweet about the NHS ´going broke and not working´ everyone jumped down his throat. He could hardly have provoked greater consternation had he taken a swipe at our own dear Queen. Downing Street declared that Theresa May was ´proud´ of the NHS. The chief executive of NHS England said the American President had ´got the

Is this guy for real?

On one hand he says that Britain needs to inject more GBP into the NHS. On the other hand he says "British survival rates for most cancers lag behind the rest of the developed world, and in some cases behind much poorer countries". And finally claims "I am, of course, strongly in favour of a universal system of healthcare that doesn´t discriminate against the poorer members of society — which is why the American approach is not for us".

So, who in the heck is going to pay for the poor, buster?

Once again, after all the screaming, "Trump´s a liar, Trump´s a fool, Trump´s an idiot!!", we find that Trump´s right and Trump´s a truth teller.

MAGA.

Trump is right. The socialists have brought nothing but ruin to GB. The socialists have had their say about Trump, so Trump is certainly entitled to express an opinion. GB has been very rude to Trump. Certainly have not seen any British manners, so I assume they have lost them.

Oh, it works all right. Provides jobs for the otherwise unemployable idiot relatives of politicians and their supporters and cronies. None of whom actually use it, just as the cronies of Ovomit, etc. didn´t use Obamacare.

NHS doesn´t work worth a dern for the proles, of course, but they´re the UK´s version of "deplorables" anyway, and who cares?

The Brits don´t have a written constitution to protect them from over-reach by government. WE used to think that we had such a document, but John Roberts proved us wrong on that. May his name be cursed forever.

Everything this author says is a lie. My wife´s grandmother was treated horribly during her last hours in a British hospital. They left her to die in the hallway on a gurney for 36 hour with no water. My mother in law flew to England when she found out her mother had been hospitalized and had to fight the staff to get grandma out of the hallway and into a room. The NHS doesn´t give a flip about their patients. I know that an American hospital would never treat a patient like meat. Is that what the Dems want for us?

I´m so old, I remember that every Benny Hill show had at least one gag about how rotten the NHS was. And that was in 1970.

It always startles me that the Brits know so little about our health care system. They think that those without insurance are left to die in the gutter. They are completely ignorant of the Hill-Burton act that requires all public hospitals to treat everyone regardless of ability to pay. They are also completely clueless about Medicaid.

HAWAII´S volcano eruption has entered the Pacific Ocean - forming tiny particles of glass in the air and sending hydrochloric acid into the atmosphere in a threat to health as Kilauea´s activity becomes more severe. Kilauea has been erupting since the start of the month, with a total of 22 fissures having appeared since May 3. One of the most recent, fissure 20, has now split into two separate channels, wth the first now having crossed Highway 137 at the 13-mile marker and entered the ocean. The second channel is 400 metres away from the road, which is closed between Kamaili Road

´Stop!´ Trump demands of Mueller

President Donald Trump demanded to know Sunday when special counsel Robert Mueller was going to ´STOP!´ probing into alleged Russian influence on the presidential election and turn his investigative power onto Hillary Clinton. In a long, bitter Twitter rant the president railed against the cost of the investigation, calling it a ´$20,000,000 Witch Hunt´ that has found ´no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren´t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign.´ Trump´s words of rage echoed the remarks of his private attorney Rudy Giuliani, who also said the investigation was a waste of $20 million during an interview

Israel’s sucker’s game
on the Gaza border
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Caroline B. Glick    Original Article

There was a depressing familiarity both to Hamas’s suicide protest operation along Gaza’s border with Israel this week and to Israel’s response to it. Hamas’s jihadist regime in Gaza doesn’t have a lot of cards to play in its continuous war against the Jewish state. But, as we have been seeing since Hamas launched its campaign against the border six weeks ago, it does have one card, and no matter how often it plays that card, Israel can’t seem to figure out how to beat it. Hamas’s card is Western hostility to Israel. The Western media, along with the EU and most

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

Julian Assange´s guest list in the seven weeks leading up to the release of hacked Democratic party emails by WikiLeaks has been revealed, and includes RT reporters, German hacker Andy Müller-Maguhn and documentary maker Michael Moore. In total 80 people visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the summer of 2016, which was around the time when Assange announced he was going to release emails from Hilary Clinton´s US presidential campaign. Others included Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and prominent WikiLeaks supporters like British designer Vivienne Westwood and left-wing journalist John Pilger, according to visitor logs obtained by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador.

Hawaii´s Kilauea volcano is violently spewing lava up to 200 feet in the air and firing out lava bombs the size of refrigerators in apocalyptic scenes with six of 22 fissures active on Friday. The latest in more than two weeks of eruptions has sent fresher, hotter lava speeding towards an isolated residential area, and officials are using helicopters to see if there is anyone still there that needs assistance, Hawaii News Now reported. Residents who have already evacuated the affected area have been told not to try and return home, and emergency services and the national guard are being sent to

A star baseball player was shot in the head during the Texas school shooting but survived as the hero cop who confronted him remains in stable condition. Rome Shubert, a University of Huston baseball commitment and a sophomore pitcher for Santa Fe High School, was shot in the back of the head, but was well enough to tweet about the tragedy Friday afternoon. ´I´m so greatful and blessed that god spared me life today,´ he wrote. ´Today I was shot in the back of the head but i am completely okay and stable.´ He told the Houston Chronicle was in his classroom when

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

John McCain´s Last Fight

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly
