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.

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?

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.

President Donald Trump and and House Speaker Paul Ryan were seen watching over a wedding at the Mar-a-Lago on Sunday. Trump was seen pointing during the wedding that featured a giant archway with white feathers and red accents. Women in simple yet elegant gold dresses stood underneath the archway in anticipation for the bride. The two were meeting Sunday afternoon to discuss Trump´s legislative agenda and potentially talk about immigration. Ryan and Trump have been working more closely with each other, as of late. The House Speaker rallied behind the Trump-Nunes position, justifying it on civil liberties ground. It has been a busy weekend for

After Cigar-gate: Careful

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Jack Engelhard    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 2/18/2018 7:11:59     Post Reply
After Netanyahu – then what? He survived the eight inglorious years of Obama – the most anti-Israel president since Jimmy Carter. For that alone, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deserves a medal…even a cigar. Netanyahu went toe to toe against Obama, and from the fire emerged unscathed. Better yet, during all that time, while Obama schemed behind his back, Netanyahu kept Israel in one piece. Even better, he kept Israel at peace – relatively so considering that Israel faces enemies from within and from all sides. So… why the rejoicing when the leader’s pain hurts the entire nation? But there is no figuring Leftists. We don’t know

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

In the days before the release of the Starr Report, a number of prominent Republicans spoke out against Bill Clinton in Congress.

President Donald Trump slammed the ´fake news media´ for not reporting Facebook ads vice president´s claims that the 13 Russians indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday weren´t trying to sway the 2016 election. In a barrage of angry tweets on Saturday afternoon, Trump used Rob Goldman´s words that the goal of the Russian influence operation was to sow fear and hatred in the United States, dividing citizens. Goldman claims that the Russians weren´t actually trying to sway the election, and that was just a consequence of their attempt to polarize American views. Facebook verified the authenticity of his comments. Trump later referenced

Earthquake hits UK: 4.7 magnitude quake hits
Swansea, felt by 10million across England
Daily Express [UK], by Chloe Kerr    Original Article

AN earthquake has hit the UK with thousands of people reporting tremors across England from as far as Cornwall to Liverpool. Its epicentre fell about eight miles northeast of Swansea city centre, according to the US Geological Survey, sparking an evacuation at Swansea University. The EMSC, an independent scientific organisation based in Paris, said it measured 4.7 on the Richter scale, at a depth of 10km. Tremors were felt up to 300km, 190 miles, from the epicentre. It is the fifth biggest earthquake ever recorded in the UK and the biggest to rock Britain in ten years. EMSC estimated around

MEXICO CITY - A 7.5 magnitude quake shook southern Mexico on Friday, a prolonged rumble that rocked buildings across the capital Mexico City. The epicenter was close to the Pacific coast in the southern state of Oaxaca and had a depth of 26.7 miles (43 km), according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The area is already reeling from an earthquake that caused widespread damage in September. Oaxaca’s civil protection service said no damage had been reported so far. In Mexico City, tall buildings swayed for more than a minute as seismic alarms sounded throughout the city, and tremors were felt as

The White House will not release a photo of President Trump signing a resolution that let thousands of mentally ill people gain access to guns. Trump signed the resolution in February, rolling back a regulation put in place in the final weeks of the Obama administration placing new restrictions on gun ownership by people with mental illness. He quietly signed it at a time when the White House was making a show of other legislation and even executive orders that Trump signed, such as the president´s travel ban that got hung up in the courts. The Social Security Administration was required to

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers have rounded up more than 200 people for violating immigration laws during a five-day sweep in the Los Angeles area, which sparked a protest on Thursday. In addition to arresting 212 undocumented immigrants, federal agents also served more than 100 notices to local businesses that they will be audited to determine whether they are employing people who are in the country illegally. The raids triggered a demonstration by a small group of immigration advocates chanting ´stop the deportations´ who blocked a Homeland Security van from entering the federal Metropolitan Detention Center. Police were called in and

George Soros believes that internet giants such as Facebook and Google have become a ´public menace´ and only the EU has the power to stop them. He says that by influencing the way their users think without them realising it, the companies have made people easy to manipulate, and this ´interferes with the functioning of democracy´, pointing to the election of Donald Trump as an example. While US regulators are not strong enough to tackle the monopoly that Google and Facebook have acquired, Soros argues, the EU is much better placed to do so and has already achieved some success.

Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold.

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.

Why did she do it? Elizabeth Warren still hasn’t answered that question, and unless she does, she won’t shake off the doubts and questions surrounding her claims to American Indian ancestry. The Massachusetts senator called herself a minority for nearly 10 years. She reported that claim on a legal directory and two law schools reported her as a minority on federal forms. Yet Warren is clearly not a minority. She’s white. Her family doesn’t appear on any Cherokee rolls. Even if she does have Cherokee ancestry from her mother’s family, it would make her a fraction Native American at most. A Native American
