The Increasing Instability of Obamacare – National Review
.

.
United Healthcare’s announcement that it is pulling out of most of the exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – a.k.a. Obamacare – is one of many indications of the law’s continuing instability.

United made this decision for obvious reasons: It was losing too much money, with no prospect of a quick turnaround. The company reported that it lost $475 million on plans sold in the ACA’s exchanges in 2015 and expects to lose another $650 million in 2016…

Rape Trees, Dead Migrants And The Consequences Of An Open Border – Breitbart

Many of the most caring people in the U.S. think they are helping the poor from Latin America by leaving our Southwest border wide open between ports-of-entry, but they are not. Several of the transnational criminal organizations (cartels) operating in Central America and Mexico make an estimated one-third or more of their profits from illegal immigration. Specifically, two groups below Texas, the Gulf and Los Zetas cartels, are largely fueled by the trafficking and smuggling of human beings.

The brutality of these criminal groups, from incinerating innocents in a network of ovens to their near complete control of state and local governments, is largely paid for by funds generated from illegal immigration – a shadowy economic engine that is only possible because we refuse to properly secure our border with Mexico….

Nebraska Abolishes Civil Forfeiture – Daily Signal

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, a Republican, has signed a major state forfeiture bill into law. Like New Mexico before it, the Cornhusker State now requires a criminal conviction before property can be forfeited.

Civil forfeiture is the law enforcement tool, which allows property suspected of being involved in, or derived from, criminal activity to be seized by police, sheriffs, and federal agents. It was ramped up in the 1980’s as a means of combatting the drug trade and organized crime, with the goal of stripping kingpins of their assets and ill-gotten gains.

Thirty years later, though, forfeiture has morphed into a system that is far more often used to seize relatively small amounts of cash, that stacks the deck against property owners fighting to get it back, and that encourages profiteering by law enforcement authorities….

Solar Developer SunEdison In Bankruptcy As Aggressive Growth Plan Unravels – Reuters

SunEdison Inc SUNE.N, once the fastest-growing U.S. renewable energy company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday after a short-lived but aggressive binge of debt-fueled acquisitions proved unsustainable.

In its bankruptcy filing, the company said it had assets of $20.7 billion and liabilities of $16.1 billion as of Sept. 30.

SunEdison’s two publicly traded subsidiaries, TerraForm Power Inc (TERP.O) and TerraForm Global Inc (GLBL.O), are not part of the bankruptcy. In a statement, the companies, known as yieldcos, said they had sufficient liquidity to operate and that their assets are not available to satisfy the claims of SunEdison creditors…

A Tragic Loss For The Republic – Originalist Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Dead At 79

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Dead At 79 – New York Post

.

.
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Antonin Scalia was found dead Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa. MySanAntonio.com said he died of apparent natural causes.

Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people, the website of the San Antonio Express News said. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

The U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI were involved in the investigation, according to the report.

Officials with the law enforcement agencies declined to comment.

A woman who answered the phone at the ranch told the Post she was unaware of the justice’s death, and no manager was available to discuss the matter.

A federal official who asked not to be named told the San Antonio Express News paper there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes.

Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

At Least 20 Ukrainian Soldiers Dead, 200 Hospitalized After Apparent Leak Of Deadly ‘California Flu’ By U.S. Lab

20 Dead, 200 Hospitalized After Reports U.S. Lab “Leaks” Deadly Virus In Ukraine – Zero Hedge

.

.
Amid the so-called “ceasefire” in Ukraine, yet ongoing shelling in many regions, the Donbass news agency reports that more than 20 Ukrainian solders have died and over 200 soldiers are hospitalized after an apparent leak of a deadly virus called “California Flu” from a U.S. lab near the city of Kharkov.

As Donbass News International reports,
.

More than 20 Ukrainian soldiers have died and over 200 soldiers are hospitalized in a short period of time because of new and deadly virus, which is immune to all medicines. Donetsk People’s Republic intelligence has reported that Californian Flu is leaked from the same place where research of this virus has been carried out.

The laboratory is located near the city of Kharkov and its base for U.S. military experts.

.
Leak of deadly virus in Ukrainian side was published first time on 12.1.2016:
.

“According to the medical personnel of the AFU units (Ukrainian troops) there were recorded mass diseases among the Ukrainian military personnel in the field. Physicians recorded the unknown virus as a result of which the infected get the high fever which cannot be subdues by any medicines, and in two days there comes the fatal outcome. Thus far from the virus there have died more than twenty servicemen, what is carefully shielded by the commandment of the AFU from the publicity”, said Basurin in daily MoD situation report.

.
Outbreak of deadly virus continues and Friday 22.1.2016 Vice-Commander told new information from epidemic:
.

“We keep registering new facts of growing the epidemics of acute respiratory infections among the Ukrainian military.

Just since the beginning of this week more than 200 Ukrainian military have been taken to civil and military hospitals of Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk. It is important to repeat that the DPR intelligence previously reported the research being carried out in a private laboratory in the locality Shelkostantsiya, 30 km away from the city of Kharkov, and involving US military experts. According to our information, it is there where the deadly Californian flu strain leaked from,” Basurin said.

.
It appears it is not just military that is affected, as Radio Free Europe reports a flu epidemic is sweeping through the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk – and the conflict smoldering nearby is making the situation even worse. Doctors are unable to identify the exact strain of the virus, because the laboratory they need is across the front lines in separatist-controlled Donetsk

Leftist Failure Update: One-Third Of Obamacare CO-OPs Are Now Officially Dead

One-Third Of Obamacare CO-OPs Are Now Officially Dead – Daily Caller

.

.
One-third of the Obamacare health insurance co-ops have now failed, causing about 400,000 policyholders in 10 states to scramble for new coverage for 2016.

Seven of the 23 co-ops created by the Affordable Care Act in 2011 at a cost of $2.4 billion – including many launched by passionate but inexperienced health reform activists – have since closed their doors. An eighth, the Colorado Health Insurance Cooperative, appears on the brink of default as well.

The failing Obamacare co-ops have canceled health insurance for largely poor and low-income customers in Iowa, Nebraska, Kentucky, West Virginia, Louisiana, Nevada, Tennessee, Vermont, New York and Colorado.

The co-op’s are falling like dominoes. In the last two months, the public has seen co-ops fail in Nevada, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky and New York.

Including Colorado, taxpayers have lost $876 million in loan money that was supposed to last for 15 years. The failed co-op’s existed for only two years before suddenly closing their doors.

More co-op failures are expected. “There will be more closures,” said American Enterprise Institute resident fellow Thomas Miller, a health care expert. “The only question is when rather than whether.”

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which funded the co–ops, said this summer that six co-ops were under “enhanced oversight” because of poor financial reports. The Daily Caller reported in August that federal officials refused to identify the six that are in trouble.

The Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported in July that 21 of 23 operating co-ops faced staggering losses, some greater than the loans that were expected to last 15 years.

New York’s Health Republic, the largest of the co-ops, announced it was closing its doors last month, leaving 155,000 customers in the lurch.

The New York failure was not only the largest, but was the flagship of the co-op movement. It was created by liberal political activist Sarah Horowitz, who had previously worked with then-state Sen. Barack Obama.

The New York Department of Finance Services last month reported that Health Republic had the worst 2014 consumer record of all insurance companies operating in the state.

Horowitz was the only individual to be given federal loans to run three co-ops at the same time. Her other two co-ops are in New Jersey and Oregon.

Miller said there is growing apprehension among state insurance commissioners about the solvency of many of the other co-ops still hanging on.

Nov. 1 is the new date for open enrollment for the co-ops. The deadline is forcing state insurance commissioners to take a closer look at the co-0p’s prospects over the next year.

Miller said many state commissioners are asking, “do you cut your losses now or do it later? There’s a lot of apprehension among state regulators in terms of signing up for another year in light of results that have happened.”

Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute think tank, said, “everything is coming to pass. It was inevitable, given their inexperience.”

Kelly Crowe, CEO of the trade association that represents all of the co-ops has now turned against the Obama administration, which set up the programs.

She blamed “regulatory obstacles,” and said Obamacare – is “not working.”

Police Find 14 Plastic Containers Filled With Dead Babies In Psycho Abortionist’s Car

Police Raid Abortionist’s Home, Find 14 Plastic Containers Of Aborted Babies In His Car – Life News

.
…………….

.
Local police have raided the upscale West Bloomfield, Michigan home of abortionist Michael Roth after acting on evidence that Roth may be performing illegal abortions – doing abortions either out of his home or in the private homes of his customers. In the course of the raid, police found what they believe are 14 containers that possibly contain the bodies of aborted babies along with other human tissue.

The trunk of Roth’s car also contained medical equipment used for abortion procedures. Investigators confiscated medical “materials” in bags and boxes at Roth’s home. Now, Roth is now under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General.

WXYZ has more on what happened:
.

Sources confirm 14 containers of human tissue, possibly fetuses, medical equipment and large amounts of Fentanyl, a drug used for pain and sedation, was found in a car owned by the doctor who works as an OB/GYN.

The case started two weeks ago when the doctor was driving on 14 Mile west of the new roundabout at Orchard Lake. He hit a special needs child who was critically injured. Sources say the doctor was not under the influence and obtained a lawyer. His car was impounded as the accident was still under investigation.

Then last week, officers executed a search warrant to obtain the “black box” data recorder from the car and while inside the trunk they found plastic containers and medical equipment.

Sources say they containers were not labeled and no medical records were in the car.

.
Roth’s abortion business, the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center, was evicted in November 2014 from its second office space this year. An eviction document provided to Operation Rescue by long-time pro-life activist Lynn Mills, shows that a court request for eviction from his office at 33200 West 14 Mile in West Bloomfield was filed on October 21, 2014. The eviction was ordered due to Roth’s violation of a provision of his lease.

Roth had until November 27, 2014, to vacate the premises. Photos taken through his office windows on November 25 show that the office was empty and Roth had already moved out.

Mills told Operation Rescue that she had conducted a literature drop just prior to Thanksgiving featuring information about Roth’s abortion business and his involvement in a tax fraud case. Roth moved out soon after.

“Public pressure of the kind used by Lynn Mills is very effective at exposing the ‘bad boys’ of the abortion cartel and forcing them out of business,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We applaud her efforts and those of others who also contributed to this pro-life victory.”

Earlier in 2014 Roth was evicted from his long-time office, located at 42450 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 205, in Novi, Michigan, which was the site of several large peaceful, pro-life sit-ins, or rescues, in the early 1990s.

Monica Migliorino Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society talked with LifeNews about Roth and this new investigation.

“That Michael Roth would be performing illegal abortions – either in his home, or even in the homes of women – shows the despicable, sordid practice that is abortion. It also shows that Roth as an abortionist did not really care about the health and safety of women – as these abortions were not taking place in safe, sterile environments,” she said.

“This is just another sad, sorry story that exposes the dark world of the abortion practice and helps the public see that dark world. On top of the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies – and now this! We see the unscrupulous nature of the abortion practitioner – a nature forged in disrespect for life,” Miller continued.

Roth has a checkered history of Board discipline and malpractice suits related to botched abortion procedures. Some of the injuries he inflicted during abortions include perforated uteri and bowels, hemorrhage, and at least one abortion he did not finish because the abortion facility ran out of dilators of the size he needed to complete the procedure. One woman required a hysterectomy to save her life. Documents related to these incidents can be read at AbortionDocs.org.

Roth’s personal life was also troubled. He went through an ugly divorce in 2005 that resulted in his then-wife obtaining a personal protection order against her husband that specifically prohibited him from following her, approaching her in public, or prescribing any medications for her. She lived locked in the basement of their home during the divorce proceedings while he enjoyed the master bedroom, according to court documents.

Right to Life of Michigan also commented to LifeNews on this investigation.

“Roth has a long history of violations, including two previous at-home abortions he performed in 1998 and 1999,” the group said. “Right to Life of Michigan released a report in 2012, Abortion Abuses and State Regulatory Agency Failure, featuring several of Roth’s violations. In addition to his at-home abortions, Roth was disciplined in 2002 for drug-related violations, including prescribing drugs without a license. He was disciplined in 2004 for violating patient consent laws and was accused of falsifying medical records by a former employee.”

Right to Life of Michigan Legislative Director Ed Rivet said, “Abortionists frequently violate our laws with extreme disregard for women’s health and safety. Roth should have his license revoked, just like Dr. Robert Alexander who ran a house of horrors abortion clinic in Muskegon until 2014.”

Since passage of the Michigan Prolife Omnibus Act in 2012, which significantly strengthened the oversight of the abortion industry, 16 abortion businesses in the state have closed, many due to substandard practices.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “We’re glad we’ve been able to provide more tools for authorities to deal with health and safety violations in the abortion industry, and we’ll continue to provide them with even more. If abortionists and their businesses can’t abide by laws and regulations that others follow, they shouldn’t be allowed practice on vulnerable women.”

Horror Filmmaker Wes Craven Dead At 76 From Brain Cancer

Wes Craven, Horror Movie Maven, Dies – WorldNetDaily

.

.
Wes Craven, the horror movie maker who brought to the big screen such blockbusters as “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Scream,” has died at the age of 76.

He suffered from brain cancer.

Craven’s family confirmed his death on Twitter and Instagram.

Craven’s career started in 1972 with “The Last House on the Left,” but his real splash came in 1984, with the now-famous Freddy Krueger character and the “Nightmare on Elm Street” flick. But at first, nobody would buy it.

“For three years, I was unable to sell it,” he told CNN at one point. “I basically went broke. So when the film got made and was a financial success, my career went from the basement through the roof. It was a wonderful feeling.”

Craven didn’t direct the film’s many sequels, except for “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” in 1995, CNN reported.

And his movie viewers weren’t the only ones scared by his films. Craven said he sometimes scared himself.

“The times when I’m scared are when I’m writing,” he said, CNN reported. “I’ve been known to jump out of a chair when someone comes into a room.”

Craven found similarly smashing success with “Scream,” a film that also brought about several sequels and parodies.

“Today the world lost a great man, my friend and mentor,” tweeted actress Courteney Cox, who starred in “Scream.”

Thanks Barack… ISIS Releases Video Of Tikrit Massacre That Left 1,700 Shi’ites Dead

ISIS Releases Video Of Massacre Of 1,700 Shi’ites In Tikrit – Breitbart

.

.
The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) released a video of their massacre at the Speicher army base in Tikrit, which left over 1,700 young Shi’ite cadets dead.

.

.
In the video, young men plead for their lives as militants drag them off a truck. The terrorists bind the men’s hands behind their backs and gag them. A man, whose face is completely covered, “lectures the young cadets” before an unmasked gunman shoots them to death as a masked man waves the infamous black ISIS flag.

“This is a message I address to the whole world and especially to the Rafidha dogs, I tell them we are coming,” stated one of the masked men.

Rafidha is a derogatory term used against Shi’ites.

The video then cuts to the other men marching in single file down to the Tigris River. Masked ISIS terrorists shoot the men and throw the bodies into the river. The place of the execution is caked in blood by the end of the massacre.

The militants continued the massacre into the night. A night vision attachment on the camera allowed the terrorists to capture the massacre as the sun went down.

Government officials recovered 600 bodies after they captured Tikrit, the hometown of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, in April. Loved ones have been unable to recover bodies thrown into the river.

The body count puts the massacre as one of the deadliest in Iraq in the past decade. A court in Baghdad sentenced 24 men to death by hanging due to their role in the slaughter.

BlackLivesMatter Protesters Set To Hold Rally For Dead Islamo-Nazi Who Plotted To Behead Pamela Geller

Protesters Plan Rally For Terror Suspect Who Plotted To Behead Pamela Geller – The Examiner

.

.
On Wednesday, CNN reported that Usaamah Rahim, the terror suspect fatally shot by police after waving a knife at officers in Boston, originally plotted to behead Pamela Geller, the organizer of the Garland free-speech event targeted by two Islamic gunmen. Meanwhile, Ferguson #BlackLivesMatter protesters are set to hold a rally for Rahim this Friday at the Ferguson Police Department.

The Facebook event page appears to have been hacked, but the description remains intact as of this writing. “#BlackLivesMatter Protest police Murder and Profiling of our Black brothers. We must stand strong and resist tyrant pigs and feds who killed Usaama Rahim. Invite your Family and Friends and lets take our streets back,” the page says.

“It’s our duty to tell the evil government we won’t put up with it any longer,” the event says. “Heads will roll,” the statement ironically adds.

Court documents indicate that Rahim changed his mind and decided to attack police officers instead. “I can’t wait that long,” he reportedly said of the original plan. Officials said they believe Rahim was radicalized by ISIS and other extremists, CNN added.

Geller, the target of death threats, responded sharply on her blog. “They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by then voluntarily,” she wrote. “This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery, or bow down to them and silence ourselves? ”

Geller told CNN she’s had an “army of security” since the Garland attack. “This is what is required just to show a cartoon in America, 2015,” she added. “It’s striking. It’s devastating, and people need to understand what’s at stake. I mean, if we surrender on this point, what will we surrender next?”

Rahim’s brother, Ibrahim, claimed on social media that Usaamah was shot three times in the back. Police, however, say the incident was recorded on surveillance video. They also decided to show it to community leaders, including Muslim leaders, NBC News said, in the interest of transparency.

“Darnell Williams, head of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, said the video ‘150 percent’ corroborates the police account,” NBC added. Abdullah Faaruuq, imam of Boston’s Mosque for the Praising of Allah, called the video’s images,”vague,” but admitted that Rahim did not appear to obey officers’ commands. But, he added, “we’re not satisfied until [the case is] fully vetted.”

It’s uncertain how many people will actually appear at the protest. As of Wednesday evening, only two supporters said they would attend, but that could be a result of the event being hacked.

Suspect Dead After Man With Concealed Carry Permit Intervenes In Alleged Carjacking – Conservative Infidel

.

.
A man with a concealed carry permit fatally shot a man in a Maceys parking lot after intervening in a carjacking in Orem Saturday morning, and so far police say the man will not face charges as it appears the shooting was justified.

The incident started at the Summit Ridge Apartment Complex in the area of 1700 S. 400 East when police were called to a fight at about 10:45 a.m. Five people, three women and two men, fled the scene in a vehicle.

FOX 13 News’ Robert Boyd reports a resident of an apartment was nearly hit at some point as the suspects drove through a grassy area during their escape.

“I could have been hit, I was standing right here and they came up and the officer just followed pursuit,” Witness Rae Eddy said.

Police said the suspects’ vehicle stopped in the area of 1010 South and 400 East after they hit a curb. Surveillance footage shows the five people exiting the vehicle. A 26-year-old male suspect stole a pickup truck from a home in that area and the other four left the area on foot.

Two of the females that fled on foot were apprehended and taken in for questioning regarding the incident. The suspect who fled in the truck drove to Maceys, 800 N. State Street.

While at the grocery store, police say, the suspect abandoned the truck and went to steal another vehicle in the parking lot.

“Subject gets out of the truck, goes over and pulls the lady out of the silver Mercedes, starts to get in the car, she’s screaming for help,” said Captain Ned Jackson of the Orem Police Department.

The suspect attempted to carjack the woman in a Mercedes at about 11:18 a.m., and that’s when a shopper, so far only identified as a 31-year-old male, confronted the suspect.

“Our citizen goes up at gun point, has him get out of the car, the guy gets out of the car,” Jackson said. “The suspect lunged and tried to get the gun from him, so at that point he’s trying to protect himself and shoots the gentleman.”

Police said the shopper, who had a concealed carry permit, was threatened and fired his weapon.

The suspect, who police have not yet identified, suffered a single gunshot wound and was transported to Utah Valley Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Police say the man had several felony warrants. Officers are actively searching for the other two suspects involved in the original incident.

Officials with the Orem Police Department said the man who fired the gun is not facing charges at this point because it appears his use of deadly force was justified.

Clark Aposhian is on the board of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, which is a group that advocates for the right of Utahns to “keep and bear their private arms for security and defense of self, family, others, property, the state, and all other lawful purposes,” and he shared his perspective on the legality of the shopper’s actions.

“If someone is trying to break into your vehicle, especially while you are in it, that’s considered a forcible felony under Utah law and under that code section it says you can use any force necessary to stop the person who is in the commission of that forcible felony,” he said.

None of the names of the people involved in this case will be released until the autopsy is complete, which is scheduled to take place on Monday. FOX 13 News will have more information as it becomes available.

Obama-Caused Border Crisis Update: Dead Children Found Washed Up Along Banks Of Rio Grande

Report: Small, Lifeless, Dead Children Found “Washed Up Along Riverbank” Of Rio Grande – Gateway Pundite

.

.
A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede.

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the heat.

From Jana Winter’s report:

“FoxNews.com accompanied Texas lawmaker Louie Gohmert, a former judge and current Republican Congressman, to the site in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday. Gohmert, whose district lies some 550 miles northeast of what has become the most heavily-trafficked people-smuggling route in the world, has been to the location many times, but has never seen it so understaffed and overwhelmed.

““I’m more concerned than ever [that the border is] so seriously undermanned and I’ll be raising hell in Washington,” Gohmert, who invited FoxNews.com to see the situation first-hand, would later tell Border Patrol officials.

“The Border Patrol agents loaded and unloaded their vehicles packed with the newly-arrived illegal immigrants – including women pregnant or nursing infants, and small, unaccompanied children – throughout the evening and early morning hours. At first, they were mostly teenagers, ages 14 to 17, arriving with their mother or brothers or no one at all. Then came the pregnant women. A mother nursing her infant. A small girl with wide eyes clutching a doll.

“A total of 72 came in during the first dark hours of Saturday morning. A third were unaccompanied children.

“The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”

That is all Winter has to report on the dead children.

More needs to be known about the price children are paying for the Obama administration’s lawless immigration policies.

In May of 2014, more than 9,500 unaccompanied alien children were referred to ORR – an increase of more than 850% since 2012. (MIN)

Dutch King Willem-Alexander Declares Welfare State ‘Dead’ (Video)

Dutch King Declares The Welfare State ‘Dead’! – Independent Journal Review

.

.
In an address to the people of the Netherlands earlier this year, the Dutch King Willem-Alexander declared the welfare state ‘dead,’ and said that the people of the Netherlands needed to look more after themselves in a ‘participatory society’ without depending so much on government.

Apparently, the Dutch are, well, going Dutch.

Commenting on the remarkable turn of events in European politics was the website “Libertarian Republic“:

The moves towards austerity by European nations are not due to populace demands but rather an increasingly grim and sobering financial outlook. Despite resistance, King Willem-Alexander’s speech marks an important shift in European politics. The progressive, post-World War II welfare state has failed and its continuation is not financially possible.

It is interesting to note that the public deficit-to-GDP for the Netherlands was -3.8% in 2012 and it is projected to be -3.0% this year in order to keep it in-line with the EU’s Stability and Growth Pact. According to that agreement, the budget deficit gap for member nations should be no more than -3.0% GDP.

The United States’ public deficit-to-GDP for the last five years: 2008: -6.6%; 2009: -11.9%; 2010: -11.4%; 2011: -10.2%; and 2012: -8.5%. (Although this year’s deficit is expected to be -6.8% in the United States, this Congress has never met a spending bill it didn’t like.)

.

Maybe Americans need to rethink this whole aversion to monarchy thing.

‘Gang Of Seven’ Immigration Bill Dead In House

House Immigration Bill Is Dead – The Examiner

The gang of seven immigration bill in the House is dead, at least for this year. Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a key player on immigration as a member of the gang told Greg Sargeant of the Washington Post, that the bill is stalled and not expected to go anywhere soon. Certainly not this fall and unlikely this winter session.

..

That throws it into an election year, which could effectively kill the bill altogether. Two reasons the bill has failed is that the republican leadership has refused to support any immigration bill and while on August vacation, many republicans heard from constituents, that they do not want amnesty for the 11.5 illegals currently in this country.

The Senate bill will not even be debated. Gutierrez had hoped that the House immigration bill could pass because it was a much farther to the right bill than the Senate version and could draw more bipartisan support. Democrats believe that republican members of the gang of seven are prepared to declare the bill dead, such as GOP Reps. John Carter and Sam Johnson.

There is still the possibility that the House could pass a series of bills instead of one comprehensive bills, but in that scenario, border security would come first, which is a poison pill for senate democrats along with John McCain and Lindsay Graham. The senate bill made it apparent that democrats were not willing to support border control and the Obama administration has been ignoring current federal law and they fell he couldn’t be trusted to carry out congressional wishes.

Odds are republican leadership in the House is willing to allow the bill to die on the floor. 2014 is a major election year and chances are would gain republicans little gains among Lationos, while alienating their base.

Oopsy… “Dead” Patient Woke Up As Doctors Prepared To Remove Her Organs

St. Joe’s “Dead” Patient Awoke As Docs Prepared To Remove Organs – Syracuse Post-Standard

Doctors at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center were about to remove organs for transplant from a woman they thought was dead.

.

Then she opened her eyes. She was alive.

The state Health Department found St. Joe’s care of patient Colleen S. Burns in 2009 unacceptable and a federal agency criticized the hospital for not properly investigating the cause. The hospital’s mishandling of the case was part of the reason the state Health Department fined St. Joe’s $22,000 last September – the largest fine levied against a Central New York hospital since 2002.

St. Joe’s was fined $6,000 over the Burns case and $16,000 for leaving a patient unattended before she fell and injured her head in 2011.

The state could not find a case similar to the Burns case after reviewing the past 10 years of inspection records, a spokesman said.

A series of mistakes that began shortly after Burns arrived in the emergency room suffering from a drug overdose led to the near catastrophe, the investigations showed. A review by the state Health Department found:

*Staff skipped a recommended treatment to prevent the drugs the patient took from being absorbed by her stomach and intestines.

*Not enough testing was done to see if she was free of all drugs.

*Not enough brain scans were performed.

*Doctors ignored a nurse’s observations indicating Burns was not dead and her condition was improving.

The hospital made no effort to thoroughly investigate what went wrong until it was prodded by the state. The investigation did find, however that St. Joe’s had acceptable organ procurement policies and procedures.

Burns, 41, of North Syracuse, recovered from her overdose of Xanax, Benadryl and a muscle relaxant and was discharged from the hospital two weeks after the near-miss in the operating room. But 16 months later, in January 2011, she committed suicide, said her mother, Lucille Kuss.

Having her daughter mistaken as dead and nearly cut open at the hospital was a horrible experience for the family, Kuss said. The doctors never explained what went wrong, she said.

“They were just kind of shocked themselves,” she said. “It came as a surprise to them as well.”

Burns, who had three daughters, was never upset about the incident, her mother said.

“She was so depressed that it really didn’t make any difference to her,” Kuss said.

Neither Burns nor any of her relatives sued St. Joe’s.

St. Joe’s officials would not discuss the specifics of the case. Burns’ family asked them not to, hospital spokeswoman Kerri Howell said.

“St. Joseph’s goal is to provide the highest quality of care to every patient, every time,” Howell said in an email to The Post-Standard. The hospital works with Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network to follow strict policies and procedures for organ donation, she said.

“These policies were followed in this case, which was complicated in terms of care and diagnosis,” Howell said. “We’ve learned from this experience and have modified our policies to include the type of unusual circumstance presented in this case.”

St. Joe’s officials thought Burns suffered “cardiac death” in October 2009, according to documents obtained by The Post-Standard under the state Freedom of Information Law.

Her family had agreed to allow doctors to withdraw life support and remove her organs after they were told she was dead.

The day before her organs were to be removed, a nurse had performed a reflex test on Burns, scraping a finger on the bottom of her foot. The toes curled downward – not the expected reaction of someone who’s supposed to be dead.

There were other indications that Burns had not suffered irreversible brain damage, as doctors had determined. Her nostrils flared in the prep area outside the OR. She seemed to be breathing independently from the respirator she was attached to. Her lips and tongue moved.

Twenty minutes after those observations were made, a nurse gave Burns an injection of the sedative Ativan, according to records.

In the doctors’ notes, there’s no mention of the sedative or any indication they were aware of her improving condition.

None of those signs stopped the organ-harvesting process. It wasn’t until Burns was wheeled into the OR on Oct. 20, 2009, opened her eyes and looked at the lights above her that doctors called it off.

Burns had been in a deep coma from taking an overdose of drugs. Hospital personnel misread that as irreversible brain damage without doing enough to evaluate her condition, the state Health Department found.

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services criticized St. Joe’s response to the incident.

“Despite this sequence of events, intensive objective peer review and root cause analysis of the case was not done by the hospital’s quality assurance program until prompted by the Department of Health,” the federal agency’s report said.

The state started investigating the case in March 2010 in response to an inquiry from The Post-Standard.

It wasn’t until the day after the state made a surprise inspection that St. Joe’s did any investigation, the state report said. And even then, it was cursory – a one-page document that cited “perception differences” without analyzing the cause of the mistake, the investigative findings said.

“The hospital did not undertake an intensive and critical review of the near catastrophic event in this case,” the federal agency’s report said. St. Joe’s officials did not “identify the inadequate physician evaluations of (Burns) that occurred when nursing staff questioned possible signs of improving neurological function.”

Burns did not suffer a cardiopulmonary arrest and did not have irreversible brain damage, as St. Joe’s had determined, the state’s report said.

“The patient did not meet criteria for withdrawal of care,” the report said.

Hospital officials didn’t wait long enough or conduct enough tests to determine that all of the drugs were out of Burns’ system before deciding whether to take her off life support,
the state said.

Lisa McGiffert, director of Consumers Union Safe Patient Project, said there is no way of knowing how often near-catastrophes like the Burns case happen because there is no system in place to collect information from hospitals about medical errors.

“These sorts of things do happen,” McGiffert said. “It’s pretty disturbing.”
Her organization believes states should require hospitals to report all such incidents soon after they happen.

“That would require people to think about how to prevent it in the future,” she said. “If you don’t have to account for it, that doesn’t always happen.”

Two medical experts who reviewed the case for The Post-Standard found it shocking, and questioned why the hospital didn’t do more to ensure other patients aren’t put in the same position.

“Dead people don’t curl their toes,” said Dr. Charles Wetli, a nationally known forensic pathologist out of New Jersey. “And they don’t fight against the respirator and want to breathe on their own.”

Once those signs of life appeared, the organ-harvesting process should’ve stopped, Wetli said.

Wetli wondered why, after seeing signs that Burns was alive, a nurse would give Burns a sedative.

Dr. David Mayer, general and vascular surgeon and an associate professor of clinical surgery at New York Medical College, also reviewed the records and found the use of a sedative perplexing.

“It would sedate her to the point that she would be non-reactive,” Mayer said. “If you have to sedate them or give them pain medication, they’re not brain dead and you shouldn’t be harvesting their organs.”

The hospital erred four or five times, Mayer said. He called the case a gross deviation from all prevailing and accepted standards of care.

St. Joe’s submitted a plan to correct problems identified in the investigation to the state Health Department in August of 2011.

At that time the state fined St. Joe’s $22,000 and ordered it to hire a consultant to review the hospital’s quality assurance program and implement the consultant’s recommendations.

The hospital also was ordered to hire a consulting neurologist to teach staff how to accurately diagnose brain death.

Good News! Venezuelan Communist Dictator Hugo Chavez Is Dead

Venezuela VP Says Hugo Chavez Is Dead – Business Insider

Venezuelan Vice President Nicolás Manduro says President Hugo Chavez has died, Reuters reports.

The Venezuelan President has been fighting an undisclosed type of pelvic cancer since at least June 30, 2011, and had come back from the illness to win re-election last year.

The news came just hours after a press conference by VP Manduro that gave the impression that Hugo Chavez was on the brink of death.

In a new statement, Manduro says Chavez died at 4:25 pm.

Bloomberg reports that Venezuela is to deploy troops, and Manduro is urging Venezuelans against violence.

Under Article 323 of the Venezuelan constitution, an election must take place within 30 days of the death of a president.

It seems likely that Chavez’s anointed heir, Manduro, will be President for less than a month before the election takes place.

If Manduro chooses to contest the election, it seems likely he would face opposition leader Henrique Capriles, a young, charismatic politician received 46 percent of the vote when he competed against Chavez in October.

Many suspect, however, that Diosdado Cabello, speaker in Venezuela’s congress and a hardline Chavez ally, may make a run for the presidency or attempt to become the interim president, forcing Chavez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela into conflict with itself.
