Burge: Brits 5 Times More Likely to Die From Government Run Health Care than Americans from Gunshots


By Gary P Jackson

A recent tweet from Iowahawk not only puts all of the idiotic hand-wringing by liberals over guns in America into perspective, but reminds us all of the evil about to be visited upon all Americans via ObamaCare.

Happy New Year America!

Basic errors killing 1000 NHS patients a month a study has revealed

The largest and most detailed survey into hospital deaths has revealed that almost 12,000 patients are needlessly dying every year as a result of poor patient care.

The researchers from The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine based the study on 1,000 deaths at 10 NHS trusts during 2009. The study revealed that basic errors were made in more than one in 10 cases, leading to 5.2% of deaths, which was the equivalent of nearly 12,000 preventable deaths in hospitals in England every year.

The research published in the British Medical Journal’s Quality and Safety publication found that errors occurred when hospital staff made an incorrect diagnosis, prescribed the wrong drugs, failed to monitor a patient’s condition or react when a patient deteriorated. Errors in omission were more frequent than active mistakes.

The majority of patients who died were elderly suffering with multiple health conditions, but the study found that some patients whose deaths were preventable were aged in their 30s and 40s.

Off-Duty Sheriff’s Deputy Shoots Gunman in San Antonio Theater Before He Can Kill

Deputy Hailed As Hero

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

~ Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President- National Rifle Association

By Gary P Jackson

Here’s something the national news isn’t covering. It doesn’t fit their anti-American agenda. Bexar County Deputy Sheriff, Sgt. Lisa Cuello Castellano, shot a would-be mass murderer on December 17, 2012, in a San Antonio, Texas movie theater. She has been awarded the Medal of valor for her bravery.

A gunman entered a San Antonio, Texas Movie Theater on December 17, 2012, but found out the hard way it was NOT a gun-free zone. Rather than it becoming a story about dozens of people shot or killed, it became an example of what an armed “good guy” can do when a bad guy comes walking in.

In this case, the “good guy” was an off-duty Sheriff’s deputy at the theater. Sgt. Lisa Cuello Castellano shot the gunman multiple times before he could shoot anyone in the theater. She has been awarded the “Medal of Valor” for her heroism. Another off-duty officer at the theater, Armondo Olguin, was also recognized for helping to apprehend the gunman.

More from WOAI:

SAN ANTONIO — A man was shot by an off-duty deputy after investigators say he opened fire at a South Side theater Sunday night, injuring one person.

Authorities said 19-year-old Jesus Manuel Garcia showed up at the China Garden restaurant on Southwest Military Drive around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and opened fire. Investigators say Garcia works at the restaurant and believe the shooting may have had something to do with the breakup with his girlfriend, who also works at the restaurant. The girlfriend was not at the restaurant at the time of the shooting.

The employees inside the restaurant fled out a side door into the parking lot. Investigators said Garcia began chasing the employees and continued firing at them as they ran through the parking lot and into the Mayan Palace Theatre next door.

As Garcia was running through the parking lot, he shot the windshield of a San Antonio Police patrol car after an officer in the car shined a spotlight on him. The officer was not injured.

Garcia then ran inside the movie theater, where he continued his search for the restaurant employees. Movie-goers in the lobby, bathroom, and some theaters reported hearing multiple gunshots. The gunshots caused people inside the theater to panic.

Everybody was just coming out of the side of the theater, running out the emergency exits. And everyone was screaming and running,” a woman who was at the theater told us.

Authorities said one person was shot by Garcia.

Garcia was finally stopped by an off-duty Bexar County Sheriff’s Department officer who was working security at the theater. Officials said the officer, Sgt. Lisa Castellano, heard the gunfire inside the theater and ran towards the sound of the shooting to find out what was going on. Sgt. Castellano spotted Garcia coming out of a bathroom with his gun drawn and fired at him, shooting him four times.

The officer involved, she took the appropriate action to try to keep everyone safe in the movie theater,” Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Detective Lou Antu said.

An off-duty San Antonio Independent School District officer who was also at the theater helped take Garcia into custody.

The man who was shot by Garcia was taken to a hospital and is said to be in stable condition.

Garcia has since undergone surgery and is in stable condition at San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). He has been charged with attempted capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $10 million.

Hezbollah Teams with Mexican Drug Cartels “Ten pounds of anthrax in a suitcase can kill 300,000 Americans in an hour”


Ten pounds of anthrax in a medium-size suitcase, carried by a Jihad warrior through the tunnels can kill 300,000 Americans in one hour,” he said. “It will make 9/11 look like peanuts. There’s no need for plans… Just one courageous man, to spread this confetti on the White House lawn. Then we will really be able to celebrate.

By Gary P Jackson

As you know, a new tunnel between Mexico and America was discovered a few days ago. A very sophisticated tunnel with electricity, good ventilation, and more.

On the heels of this find, Pamela Geller has an extensive report on the growing alliance between the Islamic terror organization Hezbollah and Mexican drug cartels like Los Zetas.

These terrorists are raising money by helping smuggle cocaine into the United States and laundering money for the cartel:

n December 2011, the US authorities released an indictment filed against Lebanese drug lord Ayman Juma, which exposed Hezbollah’s involvement with the Los Zetas drug cartel. According to the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Los Zetas is the most technologically advanced and most dangerous cartel operating in Mexico.

Juma was indicted in absentia for smuggling 85 tons of cocaine into the US and for laundering $850 million for Los Zetas. He was also accused of serving as a go-between for the Mexican crime syndicate and the Shiite terror group.

According to US officials, for a modest 8%-14% commission, Juma’s money laundering process would take about a week. The operation involved bank accounts in dozens of countries, making it virtually impossible to track the dirty money.

According to the indictment, Hezbollah is using Juma’s cartel connections to minimize its dependency on Iranian funding. The international sanctions crippling Tehran’s economy have taken a serious bite out of the $200 million in annual aid given to Hezbollah, but the latter’s appetite for cash has only grown. Los Zetas’ Beirut-based money man has reportedly helped the Shiite terror group meet its financial needs.

The growing alliance between these Islamic terrorists and the drug cartels, flush with billions of dollars, should concern every American. These terror groups have more than enough money to finance a large scale attack on America, one that will dwarf 9/11 and kill hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans.

I highly recommend that our readers check out Pamela’s entire report here.

Lest you think this is all a big to-do about nothing, for years there have been reports of officials finding copies of the Koran and prayer rugs on the American side of known border crossings for illegal aliens and a copy of the book In Memory of Our Martyrs celebrating suicide bombers, which was published in Iran, was found in the Arizona desert. As Pamela points out, Iran is heavily involved with the Mexican drug trade as well.

Thanks to the treachery of both of America’s political parties, our Southern border is wide open with little stopping illegal aliens of all sorts from crossing over. Every American is in real danger as long as our borders are left unsecured, and yet, for various self-serving political reasons both democrats and Republicans would rather look the other way, than actually secure the border.

Hell, Obama and Holder actually put weapons in the hands of these violent drug gangs, resulting in the slaughter of hundreds of innocent Mexicans, as well as American border agents Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata.

Americans deserve better than this.

Oh, and those folks who think drug use is cool, that we should just legalize it all, remember, your drug purchases help fund Islamic terrorists who would slit your throats in their sleep, given half a chance! Drug use isn’t a “victimless crime” it supports terrorism against every single American.

In 2013 I hope all Americans wake up and demand our borders be secured and those involved in the drug trade stopped once and for all.

Far Left Loon Cathy Areu Bashes Tea Party Michelle Fields Takes Her to the Woodshed


By Gary P Jackson

A bit of fun from Friday night. Greg Guttfeld, guest hosting Fox News’ 8 pm show, moderates commentary between far left idiot Cathy Areu, who hates the Tea Party, and Michelle Fields who deftly destroys her.

Michelle notes that 2012 wasn’t a loss for the Tea Party. It was a loss to the Republican Establishment™. As she rightly notes, the Tea Party never got behind Mitt Romney, because Romney never got behind the Tea Party.

New Year’s Resolutions for the Permanent Political Class

by Whitney Pitcher


Every year at this time, many of us make resolutions for the upcoming new year. We resolve to lose weight, quit smoking, exercise more, spend money more wisely, spend more time with our families etc. The common thread in all of these resolutions is that we are resolving to reform something about ourselves personally.  Meanwhile,when government sets out to reform something, it is very rarely a resolution to change something about themselves as elected officials. More often than not, their reforms are aimed about changing something about us “ordinary folks”, our relationship to government, or how government spends our money. The word–reform–is generally just a euphemism for government expanding, liberty shrinking legislation. We hear of health reform, immigration reform, tax reform, entitlement reform and all kinds of other reforms, all aimed at changing us as individuals, as taxpayers, and/or as business owners. In essence, these reforms are all variations of “constituent reform”. To be sure, much of this reform is needed, but most of the time, this is largely because of government mismanagement, (e.g. entitlement reform). Very rarely will government officials resolve to reform anything about themselves as a matter of policy or legislation.

We only need to look to the news of this past week to see the lack of personal reform and the overwhelming projection of “constituent reform” in our governmental officials. Senator Diane Feinstein proposed a gun control bill that would ban many types of guns, including handguns while she works in a building protected by armed security. In other words, her legislation would enable her to remain protected while us “ordinary folks” would be limited in our methods of protection. In the midst of “fiscal cliff” discussions where President Obama urged Congress to act like “ordinary folks” who do their jobs and meet deadlines,  he issued an executive order that gave pay increases to Vice President Biden, Congress, and some federal workers. “Ordinary folks” don’t give or receive even small pay increases during times tough fiscal times, but that was what President Obama did for politicians who are not doing their jobs. (Ironically, the details of this pay raise are found on a government website––OPM–other people’s money) This kind of behavior is commonplace is government. Politicians create a different set of rules for themselves than they do for “ordinary folks”–be it in the right bear arms to protect one’s family or in increases in their salaries while simultaneously discussing confiscating more money from our paychecks.

Very rarely are there politicians who seek to engage in political reform and promote a form of populism that views government largess and political privilege as the villain rather than business or the free market. Sarah Palin took a pay cut as mayor, rejected a pay raise as governor, passed ethics reform aimed at the legislature, executive branch and lobbying among a myriad of other policy reforms and personal populist decisions. Retiring Illinois Congressman  Tim Johnson was one of the first sponsors of the STOCK Act in 2006 aimed at making insider trading by Congress illegal, years before the practice was put under the spotlight by writer Peter Schweizer. Senator Rand Paul once returned half a million dollars in unspent funds (taxpayer money) budgeted for his office. These are a few examples and are all important steps indicating a broader vision about government’s relationship to its constituents.

As part of that larger vision of government, I’d like to propose a few new year’s resolutions for our government. First, reform yourselves. Don’t require your constituents to live under regulations that you are exempt from or give yourselves special privileges that your constituents cannot access. Do your “fair share” (as much as I loathe that phrase) by refusing to accept a pay increase while inflation, tax increases, and regulation shrink the incomes of your constituents. Don’t propose legislation without competitive bidding that only provides an avenue for cronyism, waste, and bloated contracts.  Stop giving subsidies, loans, grants, and special deals to your political donors. These are the kinds of political practice that have led to 5 of the 10 wealthiest counties being in the Washington DC metropolitan area.  Government can also take a cue from the resolutions set by us “ordinary folks”–lose weight. Our government is fiscally obese. Most proposed spending cuts are not actual cuts. When legislators propose slowing government spending rather than legitimately cutting it, it’s essentially the same as if “ordinary folk” resolved to gain less weight than last year, rather than resolving to actually losing weight. So, politicians, cut the crap, cut the fat, and sing Auld Lang Syne, just like us “ordinary folk” resolving to reform yourselves, not project reform on your constituents.

Message to GOP Voters


By Isabel Matos

January 1st marks the 54th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution.  This is not just a long rant, but an activist commentary  inspired by the memory of those who sacrificed their lives over five decades in their struggle for freedom.  There are parallels between the efforts of those who sacrificed to live free then and those who need to sacrifice, here, to be free now.  

Unless a New Third Party is created, we are stuck trying to reform the Party.   Consider this my mission statement for 2013. GOP Reform must start with GOP voter Reform.  This is addressed to all who have become disenchanted with the party, including Cuban-Americans who the GOP leadership  is foolishly pandering to again by making immigration reform a topic that does not apply to them.  It’s time for all GOP voters to Wake UP!! Your party is against you.

Part I: We Have a Problem In Our Party.

Part II:  John Boehner Has to GO.   Message to Marco Rubio.

Part III:  The GOP Does Not Stand Up For Us.  Sarah Palin Stands Up For Us.

For our Spanish speaking readers:

Latest Romney Revelation Has Me Incredibly Angry


By Gary P Jackson

Just before the Christmas break the Boston Globe published a lengthy postmortem on Mitt Romney’s massive failure as a presidential candidate. Between this, and the constant hand-wringing by Geniuses of the GOP™, I think we have beaten this dead horse to a pulp, but there was one thing that came out of this article that has me as angry as I have ever been over a politician.

Before we get to that, let’s step back in time to 2008. Like 2012, the Republican Party didn’t exactly put forth an all-star field of candidates for voters to choose from. In the end it came down to Mitt Romney, Corupt-o-crat Mike Huckabee, and John McCain. With McCain in the lead, and on a bit of a winning streak, Romney did the right thing and bowed out. Huckabee hung on a little longer, for no particular reason. McCain became the nominee.

As you know, McCain had been running his campaign on a shoestring, at one point he was flying commercial and carrying his own bags. Obviously, the situation improved. But McCain was short of campaign staff, so here comes Mitt Romney and his people to the rescue. All well and good, so far. McCain still had problems and was down in the polls until he picked his running mate, Governor Sarah Palin. It was after Sarah was chosen that things picked up, considerably. Massive crowds started showing up, volunteers showed up to man local GOP offices, and money came pouring in. McCain’s choice of Governor Palin was brilliant.

Dishonest media hacks have tried to sell the lie that Governor Palin cost McCain the election, something many in the GOP, especially those loyal to Mitt Romney, have parroted non-stop for the past four years. The fact is, After McCain chose the Governor, he took the lead against Obama for the first time. Something he would hold on to until the major financial collapse. For polling analysis click here and here.

Of course the reason McCain lost the lead, and never got it back, was due to the fact he “suspended” his campaign and went back to Washington. Now Obama went back as well, but didn’t suspend his campaign. Instead Obama used all of this to do what he does best: Grandstand. It was at that moment McCain lost the lead, and never recovered. McCain looked weak and indecisive compared to Obama. This was just one more instance in a long line of poor advice from McCain’s campaign chief Steve Schmidt, quite possibly the worst campaign guy in all of human history. McCain’s mishandling of the financial crisis, running around like a chicken with his head cut off, cost him the election.

This is where things turned nasty within the McCain campaign. It’s been well documented that those in the McCain campaign who were loyal to Mitt Romney, seeing the writing on the wall, started a campaign to discredit Sarah Palin.

Evidently, knowing McCain was going to lose, the decision was made to start working towards 2012, before the 2008 election was over.

These Romney sycophants pushed every bogus story that came out about Governor Palin, and made up a few themselves.

We know why Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace spread such malicious lies about the Governor, they were trying to save their own worthless reputations. What the Romney people did was just as despicable. They were hoping to harm Governor Palin’s reputation to the point she wouldn’t be a viable candidate in the future. All to pave the way for Mitt.

After the election, the difference between Governor Palin and her supporters, and the Romney loyalists couldn’t be more drastic. Governor Palin has worked hard to advance Conservative principles, and elect Conservative leaders around the country. The mid-term elections of 2010 were a perfect example of how serious the Governor and her supporters are about bringing real change to politics. Here”s the thing though, while Sarah and the Tea Party were working hard to find and elect Common Sense Conservatives, Romney’s people were sitting on the sidelines sniping at both Palin and the Tea Party.

The liberal wing of the Republican Party cannot stand Conservatives. They have always hated Conservatives. They hated Reagan and fought against him too. Instead of coming together and rejoicing in the victories of 2010, and acknowledging Governor Palin as the leader she is, the Romney folks were more interested in making sure their boy Mitt was the nominee in 2012. They knew that if Sarah Palin ran, Mitt had no chance whatsoever. As we came up to 2012, there was a palpable hostility between the Romney camp and anyone who supported Governor Palin.

There were several factors that contributed to Governor Palin’s decision not to run for President in 2012, but there is no doubt that the damage done by Romney’s crew played a significant role. Even though the last poll taken during the primaries [that included Sarah] showed she was far above anyone actually in the race, especially Romney, it was too late and the damage was done.

We will always wonder how different things would have been, had the Romney wing of the Republican Party acted like adults who cared about the country, instead of doing everything possible to knock out anyone who would challenge Mitt in 2012. Had Mitt Romney and his group of losers actually embraced Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, it’s hard to believe we’d be looking at four more years of hell, otherwise known as the Obama regime.

That brings us back to the article in the Globe. Tagg Romney, Mitt’s son, dropped a bombshell when interviewed. It seems Mitt didn’t even WANT to be President!

He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” said Tagg, who worked with his mother, Ann, to persuade his father to seek the presidency. “If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside. He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.

Read more here.

If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside. If this is true, what Romney and his people have done is downright immoral.

Look, we had what was arguably the worst field of candidates to choose from since the GOP was formed, no doubt making Romney look like a winner in comparison, but this latest revelation makes me crazy! If Romney didn’t want the job, why did he allow himself to be talked into running? Romney was already highly dislike by the party base, no one trusted him. Why face all of that if you really don’t want the job? Mitt Romney has always been a liberal, and you simply can’t run a liberal Republican against a liberal democrat and expect to win. Yet here we are.

Instead of following his own instinct, Romney gave in and ran for office. That’s aggravating, for sure. Worse, he ran a pathetic campaign, and totally alienated the base of the party. Romney didn’t just fail to reach out to the Tea Party [which has as many angry democrats as it does Republicans and independents] he and his supporters were openly hostile to both the Tea Party and Sarah Palin. This cost Romney the election. That and his incoherent campaign.

I find myself very angry. Had Romney’s people not spent the four years leading up to the 2012 election trashing Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, we might be looking at a very different political landscape right now. Governor Sarah Palin is superior to Mitt Romney in every way. She is a woman with strong core principles and convictions.

As we look at the fiscal cliff, and looming disaster, I’m reminded that Governor Palin is far superior to Governor Romney [and every other Governor who ran for President in 2012] on fiscal issues, as Whitney Pitcher shows us here. Governor Palin’s long list of accomplishments in office dwarfs Romney’s in both number and substance. She would have not only been a superior candidate, but would have had the drive to have beaten Barack Obama. More importantly though, she would have made a magnificent President. Her record in office proves this.

This is why I am so angry. Romney allowed his people to spend four years trashing Governor Palin and the Tea Party. Instead of telling these people to lay off, he stood by and allowed it. Many of the numerous lies told about Sarah Palin have now been etched into the public’s mind. The amount of work that must be done to undo the treachery from Team Romney is massive. Work that shouldn’t be needed, and wouldn’t be needed if those on Team Romney were honorable people.

Though I’ve never been a Romney supporter, I’ve always tried to give the man a fair shake [and caught plenty of hell for it] but this tears it for me. It’s not just Mitt, or his sycophants, though, it’s the entire Republican Establishment™. These people are more worried about their own power than the nation as a whole. They aren’t about to relinquish that power to an outsider, even though that’s exactly what must be done. These are the same sort who fought Ronald Reagan tooth and nail. The sort who attacked him and spread lies about him. It’s not just Romney who is the problem, it’s the entire Republican Party.

All I know for sure is Governor Sarah Palin was dragged through the mud for a candidate that didn’t even want the job. This is despicable and inexcusable. All of America now suffers thanks to those who pushed Romney to run, and trashed those who really wanted to see a better America.

I for one, will never forget this.

Despicable: Dear Leader Obama Uses Newtown Massacre to Push Global Warming Scam

obama-evil 100% pure

By Gary P Jackson

If one wants to see the very embodiment of evil in our time, all one has to do is look at Barack Obama or any member of his disgusting democrat party. It’s been less than a week since a lunatic murdered 27 people, including 20 children, and Barack Obama is already using their deaths to try and sell his anti-Freedom, anti-Liberty, Anti-American dreams.

Obama talks gun control, naturally, though he doesn’t mention better security, nor does he mention mental health issues, in a speech to the diplomatic corps. While it’s expected for a radical leftist like Obama to revel in the chance to disarm law abiding citizens, it’s beyond all human decency that Obama would try and use this slaughter of innocents to push the global warming hoax further. A hoax Obama has already used to funnel billions of dollars to his cronies through various “green energy” grants and loans, to businesses that have taken the money and gone bankrupt, are going bankrupt, or at best have no product to show for the millions they received.

From Joel Gehrke at the Washington Times: [emphasis mine]

Obama thanked the Diplomatic Corps for the support offered by their home nations after the Sandy Hook shooting, before rallying the ambassadors to unite against other struggles, such as climate change.

“[W]hen you think about the last few days, you’re reminded that there’s a fundamental human response that transcends cultures and transcends borders,” Obama said last night. “And that’s what is represented in this room,” he added recalling the foreign policy efforts of his first term.

At the same time, we’re mindful that we’ve got so much more work to do together,” the president continued, noting ongoing threats from terrorists, among other issues. “And all of us have to be concerned about a changing climate that could have a profound impact on every single country here.

Read more here.

Barack Obama and his democrat party represent a clear and present danger to all of mankind. They mean to destroy America and extinguish the lights of Liberty and Freedom once and for all.

These people must be stopped.

One wonders where the feckless “leadership” of the Republican Party is. We have a system of checks and balances built into our government, but the spineless GOP has done nothing but wave the white flag of appeasement throughout the Obama regime’s 4 year reign of terror, and by all indications, look to completely surrender to Obama in the next 4 years. While America is destroyed, all the GOP seems to worry about is protecting their own corrupt little enterprises.

We the people must stand up to this evil and stand up now. All evil needs to be successful is for good men and women to stand by and do nothing.
