VIDEO: A REPRISE OF OBAMA’S REFORM BS

And, speaking of White House whoppers, this seems like a good time to reprise this classic Klavan video about the tsunami of BS under which “the One? drowned us when he was pitching ObamaCare. There was, of course, the notorious C-SPAN lie and the whopper about how the public would have five days to review the legislation online before it was [...]

WHITE HOUSE LIES ABOUT REPORTER BAN

Well, we didn’t have to consult the Delphic Oracle to see this coming did we? In response to all the heat the Obama administration has recieved after banning a reporter from the press pool, they did what they always do—lie: The White House is denying that it threatened to exclude the San Francisco Chronicle from presidential events in [...]

VIDEO: THIS CLIP GOT A SF CHRONICLE REPORTER BANNED FROM OBAMA PRESS POOL

If you were under impression that the White House’s suppression of media coverage was limited to the ObamaCare negotiations,  think again. Some protestors showed up at Obama’s recent visit to the Bay area, and a reporter from the SF Chronicle took a short video. So, what was the White House response? Banishment for the press pool: White [...]

WRIST SLAPS FOR UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN DOCTORS WHO WROTE FAKE SICK NOTES

Oh, did you think those doctors we saw writing fraudulent sick notes were actually going to suffer serious consequences for their unprofessional and dishonest behavior? Wrong! UW Health doctors who wrote sick notes for protesters at the Capitol in February face penalties up to a loss of pay and leadership positions, the UW School of [...]

SUPREME COURT ALLOWS OBAMACARE TO METASTASIZE

My latest column for the American Spectator discusses the Court’s disappointing decision to allow the ObamaCare infection to spread through our health care system while the constitutional challenges wander in the wilderness of the appellate process: Despite the virtual certainty that the Supreme Court will eventually hear one of the myriad constitutional challenges to the unpopular [...]

THE GREAT ONE STOOPS TO QUOTE ME

Mark Levin built a segment of his Friday show around my American Spectator column on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). He reads the most important excerpts, and doesn’t shrink from calling IPAB by its proper name—-death panel. Here’s the audio clip:

HHS TO SPEND $200 MILLION ON OBAMACARE BRAINWASHING CAMPAIGN

We recently learned from a new AP poll that public support for ObamaCare is down to 35%, the lowest level it has reached since its passage last year. So how is the Obama administration planning to respond? Why, with a brainwashing campaign, of course.  Pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, Judicial Watch recently obtained documents from [...]

VIDEO: RAMPANT MALARIA & OTHER BENEFITS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT

Yesterday was, of course, Earth Day. So it seems like a good time to mention that none of the hysterical predictions of environmentalists have ever come true. In fact, the only measurable effect of the environmental movement is that a million people per year die of malaria. DDT is, if you don’t know, an effective killer of malaria-carrying [...]

BUT DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

If you’re not convinced by my claim that IPAB is bad medicine, read Paul Hsieh’s write-up at Pajamas Media about ObamaCare’s powerful rationing board: One of President Obama’s key proposals to reduce skyrocketing Medicare costs is a so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The IPAB would consist of 15 members appointed by the president (and [...]

IPAB IS AN ACRONYM FOR DEATH PANEL

My latest column for the American Spectator delves deeper into the unsavory realities of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB): IPAB was created pursuant to section 3403 of the ironically named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and its ostensible purpose is to “control costs.? In reality, it will do nothing at all about costs. [...]
