  • The Marxist Roots of ‘Medicare for All’

    The Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | June 14, 2019 | Trevor Loudon, the Epoch Times
    When Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) announced the launch of H.R.1384, “Medicare for All,” on the Capitol steps on Feb. 27, 2019, it was a major step toward a socialist America. Jayapal was surrounded by more than 100 supporters, many from groups such as National Nurses United, the Center for Popular Democracy, Our Revolution, Coalition of Labor Union Women, and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer. Appropriately, all of the organizations represented are controlled, or at least heavily influenced, by America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which can quite rightly claim credit for the socialist single-payer movement...
  • AMA uses Study to Push Gun Control, Note Media Role in Mass Shootings

    The AMA published a study of the effects of “Mass Shootings” on gun sales. The authors found gun sales were about as likely to decrease as to increase after the events. Instead of the traditional FBI definition of a mass murder as killing four or more people in a single incident, not including themselves, the study published by the AMA uses the more wide ranging “Mass Shooting”, which they define as an incident in which 5 or more people are injured or killed. Not surprisingly, this increased the number of incidents substantially. The researchers found 124 incidents from November...
  • Boston Mayor’s Office to Force Doctors to Identify and Document Patients Who Own Guns

    GATEWAY PUNDIT ^ | 1/10/2019 | Jim Hoft
    Joseph Stalin’s firearms registration and confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur) This video is a shocking reminder on how Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people. It’s no secret that Democrats are hoping to repeat this history here in the United States. The Boston Mayor’s Office is pushing a new...
  • #ThisIsOurLane: Doctors hit back at pro-gun group NRA

    BBC News ^ | 11/12/2018
    When America's powerful pro-gun group told doctors to mind their own business, the response was swift, furious and viral. "Unless you've had someone's heart stop beating in your hands, you don't get to tell those of us who have what is and is not our 'lane'," trauma surgeon David Morris, 42, told the BBC. The National Rifle Association's tweet on Wednesday sparked anger. It came just hours before a gunman killed 12 people in a California bar. "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane," the NRA tweeted.
  • TV Ratings: American Music Awards Slip 25 Percent to New Low

    Variety ^ | October 10, 2018 | Joe Otterson
    The American Music Awards hit a new all-time low in the Nielsen ratings on Tuesday night. ABC aired only the AMAs on Tuesday, with the three hour show drawing a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers. That is down 25% in the key demo and approximately 29% in total viewers compared to the 2017 broadcast, which drew a 2.4 rating and 9.2 million viewers. The show also moved from Sunday in November for the first time in more than a decade this year. More to come…
  • Once Its Greatest Foes, Doctors Are Embracing Single-Payer

    When the American Medical Association — one of the nation’s most powerful health care groups — met in Chicago this June, its medical student caucus seized an opportunity for change. Though they had tried for years to advance a resolution calling on the organization to drop its decades-long opposition to single-payer health care, this was the first time it got a full hearing. The debate grew heated — older physicians warned their pay would decrease, calling younger advocates naïve to single-payer’s consequences. But this time, by the meeting’s end, the AMA’s older members had agreed to at least study the...

    Do Statistics Matter To You? Doctors (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000. (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

  • SF’s appalling street life repels residents — now it’s driven away a convention

    In a move that is alarming San Francisco’s biggest industry, a major medical association is pulling its annual convention out of the city — saying its members no longer feel safe. “It’s the first time that we have had an out-and-out cancellation over the issue, and this is a group that has been coming here every three or four years since the 1980s,” said Joe D’Alessandro, president and CEO of S.F. Travel, the city’s convention bureau.

    Axios ^ | 6/13/18 | Sam Baker.
    The American Medical Association has formally — and overwhelmingly — endorsed a slate of gun control measures, calling gun violence a public health crisis. Why it matters: The AMA isn’t as powerful as it once was. But in the uphill climb to frame gun violence as a public health issue, having the AMA on board certainly can’t hurt.

    Forbes ^ | 05/27/2018 | Bruce Japsen
    Physician members of the American Medical Association are pushing the nation’s largest doctor group to back an “unprecedented” number of measures designed to curb gun violence and coax Congress into action. Early next month, the AMA’s policy-making House of Delegates will consider nearly a dozen proposals on gun control and public safety measures in the wake of 28 school shootings this year alone including last week's at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana. Action at the AMA meeting, which runs June 9-13 in Chicago, will put the group’s considerable lobbying clout behind legislation heading into November’s mid-term elections when gun...

    “There is no medically valid reason — including a diagnosis of gender dysphoria — to exclude transgender individuals from military service," American Medical Association CEO Dr. James Madara wrote in a letter addressed to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. The letter, sent Tuesday on behalf of "physician and medical student members" of the AMA, the nation's largest association of physicians, comes less than two weeks after the Trump administration released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under "limited circumstances." "The accession or retention of individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — those...

    Supermodel Gigi Hadid appears to be having some regrets. But, the American people are not buying it. It was only about 5 minutes into the American Music Awards show Sunday night when the celebs couldn’t hold in their Trump disdain one minute longer. In an effort to mock the president-elect and the soon to be first lady, show host Hadid did an unflattering impression of Melania Trump. Trump supporters and normal people everywhere who just wanted one night free from polarized politicking were quick on social media to condemn the poorly scripted bit. After a slew of backlash poured in,...

    The music industry suffered a melt down on national television during the American Music Awards -- launching into unhinged, profane tirades directed at President-elect Donald Trump and his wife, Melania. Do not be fooled, folks. This was not an awards show. It was a political hit job on the president-elect. ABC censors bleeped out Chrissy Teigen's reference to "this f**ked up, f**king election." Green Day embarrassed themselves with new lyrics to "Bang Bang." "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA," lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong screamed to a crowd of adoring anti-Trump minions. Co-hosts Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah set...

    The American Music Awards took a pretty big ratings hit Sunday, falling considerably from the show’s 2015 rating and hitting an all-time low in adults 18-49. ABC’s broadcast of the AMAs drew a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, down 31 percent from last year’s 3.5. It’s the lowest 18-49 rating on record for the awards, whose previous low point was a 3.4 in 2012.
  • What to Make of the New Study of Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law

    National Review ^ | 11/16/16 | Andrew Branca
    First, the paper conflates “homicide” and “murder,” and thus cannot result in valid findings with respect to “murder” in particular or with public safety in general. Second, the study contrasts Florida’s Stand Your Ground law with a set of four purportedly non–Stand Your Ground states. One of the four states in the control set, however, routinely applies Stand Your Ground doctrine in much the same manner as does Florida. This failure of methodology substantively invalidates the paper’s findings, and should have been identified in peer review long before publication in JAMA. (The widespread defects in the peer-review process of even,...

    Donald Trump spent about an hour answering questions from supporters and members of the media today during his ‘Ask Me Anything‘ on Reddit. The AMA was titled “I’m Donald J. Trump and I’m Your Next President of the United States,” which received over 24,000 comments and was ‘gilded’ a record 103 times at time of publication. The number of comments is also a record and beats Obama’s AMA held three years ago. Trump answered a dozen questions, more than Obama’s AMA, repeating many of the same statements he has made on the campaign trail while offering more insight into his...
