Rush Limbaugh: Death panels. Just exactly what Sarah Palin said.

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 6, 2013

On Tuesday, Governor Palin drew attention to the plight of this 10-year-old girl on her Facebook page:

The government will bend the rules left and right to harass targeted taxpayers, conservative patriots, selected journalists, etc., but it will strictly exercise inconsistent and subjective rules to deny a child a shot at life. And they called us liars when we spoke of “death panels” – faceless bureaucrats coming between you and your doctor to make life and death decisions about a loved one’s survival. It doesn’t sound so far fetched anymore, does it?

Sebelius won’t intervene in girl’s transplant case
news.yahoo.com

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The U.S. health secretary said she won’t intervene in an “incredibly agonizing” transplant decision about a dying Pennsylvania girl, noting that three other children in the same hospital are just as sick.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh also called Sebelius out (h/tp Gary Jackson).

Death Panel: Secretary Sebelius Denies Lung Transplant for 10-Year-Old Girl

June 05, 2013

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
——————-

RUSH: Kathleen Sebelius, have you heard about this?  There’s a little girl in Pennsylvania who is being denied a lung transplant because she’s 10 years old.
—————-
I lit a cigar in honor of Sarah Palin right as the program began.  Death panels.  Just exactly what Sarah Palin said, exactly what we all knew. Obamacare establishes death panels, and right now Sebelius is it.  And that’s what Obamacare says.  I don’t know how many times it says it in there, but the phrase “as the secretary shall determine,” meaning the secretary of Health and Human Services.  Well, Sebelius is determined a 10-year-old doesn’t get the lung.  She doesn’t get a lung transplant ’cause she is 10 years old, and you have to be 12 to get a lung transplant under the current regulations.

Her congressman has begged Sebelius to waive the regulation, but she has refused.  The congressman’s a Republican.  Of course Sebelius would refuse.  But I remember how people laughed.  I remember how the media said, “Ah, you Republicans, ah, you conservatives, you’re just over the top.  There aren’t any death panels.  What are you talking about?”  Look, I’m not even gonna sit here and say that Sebelius is wrong not to not intervene, but they’re death panels.  The government’s making the decision who lives and dies.  That’s what Obamacare is.  Little think piece, just a little bit.  A proposition to the low-information voters.

[…]

CALLER:  This morning I’m listening to CBS News, and I think I did a double-take when I heard a story about Kathleen Sebelius saying no to that kid, and I thought, holy cow, is that a shot across the bow to the public or what?  Then I hear a story about Mrs. Obama heckled at a private fundraiser, and they ran audio of that, and I’m thinking, okay, what’s going on here, you know?

RUSH:  Well, as far as Sebelius, the value there is that yes, Virginia, there are death panels, and she’s it.

Read more.

Thankfully, a federal judge stepped in after the child’s parents filed a lawsuit.  Tony Lee at Big Government reports:

A federal judge ordered Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to suspend the so-called “Under-12” rule and allow 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan onto an adult transplant list in a Wednesday ruling.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Baylson made the ruling a day after Sebelius refused to intervene in the case, saying transplant decisions should be left to “experts.” He directed Sebelius to order the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) to let Murnaghan, who is dying of cystic fibrosis and needs a lung transplant, on the adult list for “at least nine days” until a June 14 hearing. The decision only applies to Murnaghan and not to other children who may be similarly situated.

According to NBC News, Murnaghan’s parents sued Sebelius on Wednesday to prevent her from enforcing the “Under-12” rule, alleging it “unfairly penalizes their daughter, Sarah Murnaghan, and other young children awaiting transplants.”

It remains to be seen whether Sebelius will try to impose her will at the hearing.  Let us pray that she does not.

Gov. Palin: Obama’s Rice and Power Appointments Today Are Evidence of His Skewed Thinking and Unchecked Power

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 6, 2013

Barack Obama continues to thumb his nose at the American people even as multiple scandals in his corrupt administration are exposed.  And Governor Sarah Palin calls him out every step of the way.  Today is no exception.

Posted on her Facebook page today:

___________________
We’re in for a helluva’ ride, America. Obama just named Susan Rice as his National Security Adviser and nominated Samantha Power to replace Rice as our U.N. ambassador. Samantha Power is married to Cass Sunstein, the very, very strange Obama pick for an early “czar” position who wowed us with his numerous bizarre claims including the wacko belief that animals should have the right to sue in court, that hunting should be banned as genocide, and that pet ownership is akin to “slavery.” But Mrs. Cass Sunstein’s character judgment in choosing her life partner is the least of America’s worries. Information about Obama’s new picks will be revealed in coming days. Pay attention to who they are; what they stand for; and what their records, associations, and statements reveal about them and their intentions. Especially consider Obama’s chosen ones as evidence of his skewed thinking as he “fundamentally transforms” our great nation.

——————-

Here’s just a taste, as summarized by The Daily Caller:

—————-

“In 2002, President Barack Obama’s new nominee to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, proposed imposing a peace deal on Israelis and Palestinians militarily, even if such a policy alienated wealthy pro-Israel American Jews. ‘I actually think in the Palestine-Israeli situation there is an abundance of information, and what we don’t need is some kind of early warning mechanism there,’ Power said in an interview. ‘What we need is a willingness to actually put something on the line in sort of helping the situation. And putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import,’ she added laughing, clearly referring to American Jews and suggesting they were a great obstacle to moving toward peace between Israelis and Palestinians.”

——————-

“Isn’t that lovely. Not only is she condescending toward American Jews, but her analysis also happens to be utterly wrong. The failure to achieve peace in the Middle East is not because wealthy American Jews have somehow manipulated America’s leaders into thwarting peace, but rather because Palestinian leaders have consistently rejected generous Israeli peace offers for a state of their own. In fact, the wealthy American Jews that Power haughtily dismisses in the interview as obstacles to peace are very often staunch advocates of a two state solution. On another note, Power also once compared actions abroad to those of Nazi Germany. As the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein wryly noted on Twitter, ‘Samantha Power is the UN Ambassador, who is supposed to represent US interests at the UN?'”

And these articles by TheBlaze, Breitbart.com, and Townhall should help wake up Obama supporters who naively and blindly (despite failure after failure and scandal after scandal) continue to give him the benefit of the doubt:

Nah, America… I shouldn’t have prefaced this post with a warning to hang on because “we’re in for a helluva’ ride.” Sorry. That was crass and inaccurate. I should have just said about Obama’s judgment and unchecked power, “America, we are so screwed.”

D-Day: The Cost of Freedom

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 6, 2013

Visitors walk among the 9,387 graves at the Colleville American Military Cemetery on the 69th anniversary of the 1944 D-Day invasion on June 6 in Colleville sur Mer, France. Several hundred veterans of the 1944 D-Day landings in Normandy gathered to commemorate the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II.

Over 9000 graves in France attest to the cost of freedom   Veterans of the Normandy Invasion gathered at the American Colleville Miltary Cemetery and other sites across the Normandy Beaches to remember their fallen comrades at arms on the 69th anniversary of the victory that started the march to free Europe from the Nazi invaders.

Salute: U.S. veterans stand to attention during the national anthems at a ceremony held at the Memorial of the Colleville American military cemetery

From a report at Military.com:

Hundreds of military veterans gathered on the beaches of Normandy for the 69th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion that led to the end of World War II.

A series of events were planned at cemeteries and villages liberated after 150,000 soldiers waded ashore June 6, 1944, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday. [ed. See that report here.]

About 2,500 soldiers died during the landing.

Among those observing the commemoration are 264 veterans who fought in the Normandy campaign. Their trips were paid for by the “Heroes Return” program financed by Britain’s Big Lottery Fund.

Veterans from the eastern English counties of Norfolk and Suffolk brought with them the remains of Ernest Mears, who dug trenches at the landing sites and built shelters while under fire.

Mears, who was with the Pioneer Corps, is to be interred at a Commonwealth War Grave cemetery near where he landed.

Jack Woods, who served with the 9th Battalion Royal Tank Regiment — and who accompanied Mears’ ashes to France — said Mears was typical of the men who went to war “simply to do their duty.”

Woods hoped to re-inter his fellow vet next year at Bayeux Cathedral during the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

CNN reports that the number of World War II veterans is dwindling:

There are still more than 1.7 million Americans alive who served in World War II, but that number is dwindling fast.

With much of the “Greatest Generation” now in their 80s and 90s, hundreds of these veterans are dying every day, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

By the year 2036, the VA estimates, there will no longer be any living veterans from the conflict.

The last World War I veteran, Frank Buckles, died in February 2011.

The Associated Press reports that about 2 dozen American veterans gathered at the Omaha Beach memorial. It is not clear why their report does not mention the hundreds of veterans that, according to Canadian and British newspapers, paid their respects across Normandy.

Veterans of the 1944 Normandy landings gathered Thursday at the site of history’s largest amphibious invasion for ceremonies marking D-day’s 69th anniversary.

Around two dozen U.S. vets, some in their old uniforms pinned with medals, stood and saluted during a wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial overlooking Omaha Beach, where a cemetery holds the remains of over 9,000 Americans who died during the vicious battle to storm the French beach under withering Nazi fire.

[…]

Tourists, many from the U.S. and Britain, gathered under a brilliant spring sky to witness the flag-raising amid the neat rows of thousands of white marble crosses and stars of David marking the graves of U.S. servicemen and women fallen in the Allied invasion of Normandy.

On June 6, 1944, Allied forces led by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower stormed the beaches of Normandy to begin the liberation of German-occupied Western Europe during World War II.

A full day of ceremonies — including fireworks, concerts and marches — was taking place across Normandy in honor of the more than 150,000 troops, mainly U.S., British and Canadian, who risked or gave their lives in the invasion.

“The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory!” Eisenhower said in a historic address after the invasion was launched.

This excellent documentary was done as a high school class project.  Notice the archival footage at 31-33 seconds of the soldiers praying before battle.
