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.

Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, on Tuesday responded to Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s speech to the UN Security Council, saying he has a choice between achieving peace and “hateful rhetoric”. Haley also made clear that while the United States is holding out its hand for peace, it will not chase after the Palestinian Arabs. “I sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the United States to the Palestinian people in the cause of peace. We are fully prepared to look to a future of prosperity and co-existence,” she said. “The Palestinian leadership has a choice

BRUSSELS is gearing up for a bitter trade war with US and has pledged to fight fire with fire if Washington carries out its threat to introduce import barriers to steel and aluminium products from Europe. European Union trade officials have warned such a move would result in counter-tarrifs being slapped on exports from the US within days. They said iconic US products ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to Jack Daniels whiskey would be targeted in any retaliatory strikes and that preparations for such a confrontation were in full swing. Analysts said the choice of products was significant as Harley-Davidson is based

WASHINGTON - A federal judge on Tuesday denied a request by AT&T Inc (T.N) to compel the U.S. Justice Department to disclose any records of communications between the White House and government lawyers that detail President Donald Trump’s views on the company’s proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner Inc (TWX.N). The Justice Department on Friday moved to prevent AT&T from arguing that politics played a role in the government’s decision to stop the merger, which Trump has publicly criticized. Share prices for AT&T and Time Warner were steady on the news, both down slightly for the day. “We respect the judge’s

CONSERVATIVE MP Iain Duncan Smith stunned BBC host Jo Coburn and Labour MP Chuka Umunna as he whipped out a list of EU regulations he would change during a Brexit debate. Mr Duncan Smith said the UK would look at EU regulation to see whether it should be changed post-Brexit. It comes after the Brexit Secretary spoke in Vienna and outlined the UK’s post-Brexit relationship, where he said Britain and the EU should be able to trust each other with “regulations and the institutions that enforce them”.

A British couple kidnapped and held hostage by suspected terrorists while on holiday in South Africa have been dramatically rescued by counter-terrorism forces. The pair had been snatched while visiting KwaZulu-Natal in the north-east of the country and their family were not even aware they were in danger or indeed missing. Anti-terrorist officers who were monitoring two suspects discovered information linking them to a couple in Cape Town who had not returned as expected on February 15. Fearing their life was in danger, a specialist force was put together to storm the suspected terrorists´ home in Vryheid, a cattle ranching and mining town

Why real Americans don´t care

If I had a say in this, there’d be only two countries taking part in Winter Olympics 2018 – the United States versus Russia. We don’t need the rest. Like it was when we beat them in hockey, 1980. As you can see, there are too many countries around the world…too many, absolutely, around Pyeonchang, which is in South Korea. Was that really the best choice? Never mind. That’s another topic. But I must say this – my Uncle Marv did return (wounded) from the war there; but 33,652 other Americans did not. It’s called “The Forgotten War.” I’ll bet it is not forgotten

A week of open debate in the U.S. Senate failed to produce an immigration bill that a majority of lawmakers were willing to support, effectively bringing reform efforts to a standstill. But the White House says it´s not giving up on its fight for border wall funding and a list of other changes to legal and illegal immigration practices, including DACA, that the president has been demanding. ´We´re going to stay on it,´ Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview with Fox & Friends that aired on Monday morning.

An ancient oak tree marking the border between England and Wales has fallen down at the grand age of 1,000. The Buttington Oak was planted as a boundary marker and had stood proudly for centuries. It was planted along Offa´s Dyke - a line of earth that fo llows the border between England and Wales - named after Anglo Saxon king Offa. But images show the historic oak, with a girth of 36 feet, now lying on its side in a field near Welshpool in Powys.

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 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

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of a Russian “troll farm” and 13 foreign nationals leaves little doubt Russia was working to undermine US democracy. But the filing also knocks the teeth out of the “collusion” claim. That is, the charges are a strong sign that there’s nothing to Democrats’ charge that Team Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Mueller confirms that the trolling entity, the Internet Research Agency, used fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to spread disinformation, sway public opinion and promote rallies. The “strategic goal” was “to sow discord in the US political system.” Indeed, IRA began

Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening.

Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day. But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? In the end, the House minority leader was reduced to some adolescent racialist patter about her grandson wishing to look more like his Mexican-American friend.
