WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is “deeply disappointed and concerned” after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.
“It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan,” said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. “He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”
The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, “This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ‘ to care for him who shall have borne the battle’ given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm’s way, and not private insurance companies. I say again that The American Legion does not and will not support any plan that seeks to bill a veteran for treatment of a service connected disability at the very agency that was created to treat the unique need of America’s veterans!” …Continue Reading
Political correctness in Obama’s foreign policy can only increases the legitimacy of terrorists. Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano’s referring to terrorists as “man-caused” disasters is absolutely ridiculous. The next thing Napolitano will be saying when terrorists kill more Israelis – “Today in illegally occupied territory near Jerusalem, 7 Israelis chose to stop breathing!”
Atlas Shrugs expresses a clear vision of the political speak reality – “We are so screwed.”
Deathspeak and the language of the absurd. We are so screwed. (hat tip rut)
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
For those who think the war on terror is a “fairy tale”, here’s a small reality check from Atlas Shrugs:

Oil-rich Nigeria, population 140-million, now is very close to an all-out”Islamic takeover’, warn two Dutch MPs. And this would have a massive impact: from Nigeria, Africa’s islamisation would spread fast — resulting in hundreds of millions of refugees.
This would have a massive impact on the future of all of Africa and of the West, warn Dutch parliamentarians Geert Wilders and Martin Bosma of the Party for Freedom, writing in an editorial in the Dutch religious daily, the Reformatorisch Dagblad.
Oil crucial in Sudan and Nigeria:
Although the Dutch MPs didn’t say this, a similar situation of course, also exists in Sudan on the Eastern side of the north-African continent: in this rudderless northern African state, the Jihadist-north’s warlords are carrying out an ethnic-cleansing campaign against all the southern tribes, who are mostly animist and/or Christian followers. Nigeria and Sudan also have another important feature in common: Nigeria is rich in oil, and Sudan is located very strategically, straddling the shipping lanes to all the Middle-Eastern oil export terminals.
They said in their joint Dutch-language editorial that the international news media ‘often describes such warfare erroneously as isolated conflicts, without placing any importance on the wide-ranging effects these ‘isolated local conflicts’ will have on any other countries, but especially on the West.
“A conflict is far too often described as a ‘civil war’, and journalists will write of ‘religious tensions’ or ‘sectarian violence’ – thus also constantly creating the immediate impression that these are mere dog versus cat fights which would not affect Western countries in the least. see video and also this video
“However, when one examines such ‘civil wars’ closely however, these often are imperialistic wars of conquest – in which Islam is always the engine which drives their stated end purpose of Islamic world dominance’.
In Islam’s most important ‘hadith’, that of the Buchari, it’s stated very clearly that ‘Islam is there to rule, and not to be ruled’.
“Jihad, the holy war, is the duty which has to be carried out by every Muslim – and those Muslims who reject Jihad are no longer viewed as Muslims, but as heretics, and thus become marked for a Fatwa, a death sentence,’ the two Dutch MPs write…Continue Reading

Nancy Pelosi is trying to save her newspapers. If newspapers would actually report the news, investigate corruption at all levels of government fairly and thoroughly, they would not need saving. Responsible Journalism will be rewarded and activist media will be rejected by people who are searching for facts and legitimate news.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, worried about the fate of The Chronicle and other financially struggling newspapers, urged the Justice Department Monday to consider giving Bay Area papers more leeway to merge or consolidate business operations to stay afloat.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, released by Pelosi’s office late Monday, the San Francisco Democrat asked the department to weigh the public benefit of saving The Chronicle and other papers from closure against the agency’s antitrust mission to guard against anti-competitive behavior.
“We must ensure that our policies enable our news organizations to survive and to engage in the news gathering and analysis that the American people expect,” Pelosi wrote. …Continue Reading
Pelosi says, “We must ensure …news gathering and analysis that the American people expect.” What she meant to say is “…news gathering and analysis authorized by me!”
There is some small hope that all of the Democrats in Congress aren’t marching in lock step with Pelosi/Reid/Obama.

WASHINGTON — Eight Senate Democrats are opposing speedy action on President Barack Obama’s bill to combat global warming, complicating prospects for the legislation and creating problems for their party’s leaders.
The eight Democrats disapprove of using the annual budget debate to pass Obama’s “cap and trade” bill to fight greenhouse gas emissions, a measure that divides lawmakers, environmentalists and businesses. The lawmakers’ opposition makes it more difficult for Democratic leaders to move the bill without a threat of a Republican filibuster.
The budget debate is the only way to circumvent Senate rules that allow a unified GOP to stop a bill through filibusters.
“Enactment of a cap-and-trade regime is likely to influence nearly every feature of the U.S. economy,” wrote the Democratic senators, mostly moderates. They were joined by 25 Republicans. “Legislation so far-reaching should be fully vetted and given appropriate time for debate.”…Continue Reading
You have to admire Larry Sinclair for his tenacity and ingenuity. What a great idea! (Larry Sinclair is the man who has accused Obama of using cocaine and engaging in consensual sex with him in 1999.)
I got a call from Citizen Wells asking me if I had seen this link from the US Postal Service that lets you design your own stamps. You will love this and I strongly suggest anyone who still uses the US Postal Service to invest in a book of Stamps like the one above and use them to send out your letters and bills.
Sinclair Publishing, LLC will purchase and use these stamps in all our USPS business.
