The Pitfalls of Single-Payer Health Care: Canada’s Cautionary Tale

By Candice Malcolm | April 13, 2017

In the Netflix series House of Cards, President Frank Underwood campaigned for the White House by telling Americans, “You are entitled to nothing.” The fictional president — a Democrat, no less — was forthright with American voters about the unaffordable and unsustainable structure of America’s entitlement programs, and he was rewarded at the polls. In real-life America, unfortunately, there is no such courageous honesty from the political class. Even many in the Republican party, once the stalwart force fighting against the growth of big government, are now resigned to contemplating a government takeover of the health-care industry in the wake of their failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. Charles Krauthammer, for example, woefully predicts that President Trump will opt for single-payer health care. F. H. Buckley, meanwhile, optimistically calls for Trump to look to the Canadian model of universal coverage.

There’s just one problem: The Canadian model of universal coverage is failing.

Trump hating liberal James T Hodgkinson

The gunman who opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice session this morning has been identified as a Trump-hating Bernie Sanders supporter.

Sixty-six-year-old James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois, was killed by Capitol Police after firing up to 100 rounds from an assault rifle at a baseball park in Alexandria, Virginia, leaving four injured including House Majority Leader Steve Scalise.

Hodgkinson was a staunch Bernie Sanders supporter and campaigned for the left-wing senator to get the Democratic nomination for president last year. The union tradesman, who ran a home inspection business, also repeatedly ranted against President Trump on social media.

New evidence proves Clinton was always the Democratic choice

On September 23, hacker Guccifer 2.0 released more documents obtained from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Last week, WikiLeaks directly released files from Guccifer 2.0 through their Twitter account. Among them was a high-profile donor list revealing the pay-to-play appointments of several ambassadorships and other positions by President Barack Obama. On September 15, Guccifer 2.0 released several DCCC memos on a WordPress site, including one from Ohio dated December 9, 2015 that referred to Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee before the primaries began, even though Sen. Bernie Sanders was just a few points behind Clinton in most polls. “With former Governor Ted Strickland and Secretary Clinton on the ballot, there will be a boost from the top of the ticket,” read the memo.

No, Jesus was not a socialist

From WND
By Joseph Farah | 19 May 2016

Joseph Farah sees Hillary, Sanders as more akin to Judas Iscariot

A new poll of Americans suggests a quarter of them think Jesus was a socialist.

A survey conducted by the Barna Group and commissioned by the producers of “The Young Messiah,” coming out on DVD in June, found 24 percent believe Jesus’ teachings align more closely with socialism than capitalism. Only 14 percent believe Jesus was a free marketer. The rest, a large majority, said they were either not sure or neither.

Asked which of the presidential candidates’ views were closest to the teachings of Jesus, 21 percent said Bernie Sanders, 11 percent answered Ted Cruz, 9 percent said Hillary Clinton, and 6 percent answered Donald Trump. Again, 22 percent weren’t sure, while 37 percent said none of the above.

One thing I can say with certainty, the 24 percent who think Jesus was/is a socialist probably haven’t actually read the Bible.

If all you know about Jesus is what you’ve heard, I can understand why you might think he was a socialist. After all, He healed the sick and fed the hungry and commanded His followers to do likewise, right?

That’s what socialists do, isn’t it?

Actually, no.

Historically socialists ration government-run health care services and starve their people.

Jesus wasn’t a socialist, but, interestingly, he was betrayed by one.

Inside the Bernie Sanders Pro-Hamas Campaign

From FrontPage Magazine
April 15, 2016 | By Daniel Greenfield

Attacking Jews and pandering to Muslims is the plan.

bernie_sanders_by_gage_skidmore_2-1280x575

Why won’t Bernie Sanders stop attacking Israel? That’s the question some Jewish supporters are asking as the troubled campaign continues alienating Jews while pandering to haters of the Jewish State.

For the longest time it was all but impossible to get Bernie to even admit he was Jewish. His campaign conducted no outreach to Jewish groups while aggressively pursuing outreach to Muslim groups such as CAIR. CAIR is an anti-Semitic Islamist group with known ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hillary’s and Bernie’s Friend: Al Sharpton Called for Murder of ‘Crackers’ and ‘Pigs’

From American Thinker
By William A. Levinson       |     11 April 2016

Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN), the same racist and anti-Semitic hate group that played a central role in the 1995 arson of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, enjoys touting its association with key figures in the Democratic Party.  Here is the NAN’s press release from 2008, emphasis mine:

Over 3000 delegates from across the country attended National Action Network’s 9th annual convention from April 18-21 as well as five of the major Democratic presidential candidates—Senator (s) Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Governor Bill Richardson, and Congressman Denis Kucinich … and other political leaders including Congressman Charlie Rangel, New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, Reverend Jesse Jackson, New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli and many more were all on hand as Reverend Sharpton’s organization hosted the event at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers.

The press release includes endorsements of Sharpton by the current and prospective Democratic occupants of the White House:

Bernie’s Proposed Tax Increases Are So High, They Virtually Broke Analysts’ Calculators

From The Federalists Papers
By

Bernie-Sanders-Meme-4

Bernie Sanders tax increases are so huge, it practically broke the analysts’ calculators.

At more than $15 trillion, the Sanders tax increases are so massive, they actually challenged forecasters’ ability to calculate them.

One of the taboos in politics is taxes. Every policy, every program a candidate proposes has to be paid for and ultimately the American people pay for it.
