British Petroleum Deserves To Be Boycotted

Recent developments:

Revealed: Libya paid for medical advice that helped Lockerbie bomber's release.

Libya paid for “evidence” that released Lockerbie Bomber!  OUTRAGEOUS!

British minister Jack Straw admits Lockerbie bomber's release was linked to oil.

British Petroleum (BP) needed a deal with Libya to recover oil and gas. 

Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gadaffi wanted to get his terrorist friend back home.

Scottish officials announced that they would release Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, for compassionate reasons.  Al-Megrahi reportedly has terminal cancer.   OUTRAGEOUS!

Boycott British Petroleum

The so-called Lockerbie Bomber killed more than 200 innocent people.  He did not deserve compassionate release.   But the Bloody British needed oil and British Petroleum needed a deal.

Boycott British Petroleum

Al-Megrahi returned home.  He was welcomed home like a hero.  He served just 11 days of a life-time sentence for killing each victim!

British Petroleum got their deal.   BP’s gasoline will flood into American service stations.  Consumers will buy it, and everybody will be happy.  Right?  WRONG! Oil and blood do not mix!

Boycott British Petroleum

Less than a week after the release, the Times of London released it’s bombshell on Sunday. 

“The British government decided it was ‘in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom’ to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.”

In their best interest?   That is an outrage!

“Gordon Brown’s government made the de-cision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil ex-ploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

“The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release,” the Times reported

Then the Times concluded:

“The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests.”

No one included the families of the 200 victims in the negotiations.

Boycott British Petroleum

Then the British news service Reuters jumped in.  LINK

This is a crisis for Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s government.  Fox News analyst called it Brown’s Watergate

Did the Obama Regime Know About the Deal?

Did the British consult with the Obama Regime about the deal?   The British and Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs  denied they talked about it.  However, some people don’t believe it.  Check this YouTube replay of the Morning Joe news program.

No one is believing that Obama didn’t know that the British would release the Lockerbie bomber.

No one believes that the British released the Lockerbie Bomber for compassionate reasons either!

Fox Web Site Blows Away Competition

The Fox News Channel’s web site is blowing away all competitors. 

I ran a comparison using the tools in

Fox News Channel has been leading all other media outlets in providing fair and balanced information about the Tea Party Movement, town hall rancor by angry voters, and the lies of the Obama-care spin machine.

Fox News’ web site reached almost 11 million unique visitors per month in June and July.  These are the latest statistics for the web sites.  August statistics are not available. (green line on the chart) took a big dip in June and continued to plummet in July.   Meanwhile, CBS continues to lag. is a distant fourth.

The New York Times web site hardly made the scale.   All of the media giants except for Fox News is having trouble staying ahead of (not on this scale) which is an independent website with no associated TV channel.

An update on Obama-Care

BREAKING: Charles Krauthhammer, whose words are always carefully weighed, believes Obama-Care 1.0 will die.  He suggested a Obama-care 2.0 to replace it.  LINK to Krauthhammer article.

At this point, I still believe some form Obama-care will become law.  The Democrats have the votes.  They can ram it through.  Whether that benefits them in the long run is debatable.

Liberal Dynasty

But consider this: Obama-Care will be the Democrat’s flagship program like Social Security was 60 years ago.  No matter how bad it is; the liberal media will provide cover.  Democrats will tout their socialized medicine as the beginning of their socialist workers paradise. 

At every national election, Democrats will scare voters by claiming that if they (the Democrats) lose the election the medical coverage that voters depend on will end.   Of course, they will promise fixes and more funding in the healthcare system.  This link show what the British liberals say at election time.

Obama-care is not about health.  It’s about creating a socialist-Democrat dynasty in the United States!

Not Compatible With Open Borders

Free medical care and open borders are not compatible.   Illegal aliens from the Caribbean, Central American, and South America will stream into the U.S.  

The U.S. cannot fund a national health care system and a strong military.   This has been the case in Europe where our NATO allies have all but pulled the plug on their military machines.   There are hints that emaciating the military is one of the objectives of the socialists who support Obama-care.

Risky Lifestyles Will Cost Taxpayers

America is a nation of millions of people living risky lifestyles. Whether it is obesity, drug use, or promiscuous and deviant (and now legal) sexual activities, many of these Americans will need long-term medical care, paid for by the taxpayers who have lived non-risky life styles.

Many of  the people, who exercise their “First Amendment rights” and mark their bodies with hideous tattoos, may one day face the the consequences.  Hepatitis C and other viral diseases will require years and thousands of dollars of treatment.  LINK to the Mayo Clinic.

Here is what I see Obama-care will introduce:

  • Abortions on demand will be paid for by public funding.   LINK
  • Obama says illegal aliens will be denied Obama-care.  That’s may or may not be correct right now.  However, aliens can become eligible for medical care with a sweep of Obama’s hand through a presidential executive order or amnesty.  However, one research service believes that HR-3200 (The House Obama-care bill.) does not exclude illegal aliens.  LINK
  • If amnesty is extended to illegal aliens, they will immediately sponsor into this country their extended families.  Estimates are that this will add another 120 million people eligible for HC into the U.S.  LINK
  • The number of uninsured in the U.S. has been claimed to be as high as 94 million and as low as 47 million.  The actual number is far less, according to the census.   LINK to the Heritage Foundation. Link to image.
  • Whatever the real number of uninsured is, it will create a shortage of doctors, nurses, and hospital space.  
  • Cost of a socialized medicine is far under-estimated.  Even the Congressional Budget office confirms that the costs will be much much more than the Obama Regime claims. Link to CBO  LINK
  • Access to medical care will be rationed or even denied if it is deemed to be too expensive.
  • Elderly citizens, who believe now that they are entitled to healthcare, will be denied because their lives will be determined to be too expensive to maintain.   Rationing is the norm in the United Kingdom and every other nation where socialized medicine is.
  • Cancer patients will not be denied health insurance, but costs and rationing will cause Obama-care to denied to them the newest medicines and treatments if it is too expensive or not authorized.  LINK
  • Current Medicare users will be squeezed.  Obama-Care will cut $150 billion from Medicare Advantage.  LINK
  • The Congressional Budget Office estimates that seniors will pay 20% more for drugs under Obama-care.  LINK
  • Government sanctioned, doctor assisted suicide will become routine.
  • Doctors who were enthusiastic about helping mankind will slowly become crushed and lose enthusiasm under the bureaucracy.  LINK
  • One plan to provide health care for only the uninsured is bogus because those who have insurance will drop it to get “free” healthcare.  After all,  they will correctly reason that they are paying for it.
  • Businesses who provide healthcare will be taxed to pay for those not on healthcare.  These business may choose to drop their HC and tell employees to jump to the public option.
  • Many of those who are uninsured have chosen not to pay for health insurance for various reasons.  Some are wealthy and would pay for medical care out of pocket.  Those more affluent taxpayers will probably jump  in and out of the health care system, depending on their own wishes.

Look At Socialized Med In Canada, U.K.

No one knows the future, but we can look at countries where socialized medicine is used today. 

These health care systems are in chaos!  For example:

  • Thirsty patients drink water from flower vases in the United Kingdom.  LINK
  • U.K. mums give birth in toilets, corridors, elevators, and offices because there are no rooms.  LINK
  • System-wide, the U.K. National Healthcare System (NHS) is short of qualified midwives.  There are almost no OB-GYN births in the U.K.  British mums get midwives, many from third-world countries.
  • Some 1,000 deaths one year alone in NHS were caused by the superbug MRSA.  LINK
  • Ants, cockroaches, rats cause infections in U.K. NHS hospitals and clinics.  LINK
  • Filthy U.K. hospitals threatened with closure. LINK
  • Patients become angry and frustrated over appallingly filthy hospitals.  One lady patient was so appalled that she cleaned up her own ward while plugged into an IV.  LINK
  • Disillusioned nurses are sometimes cruel to patients.  LINK
  • U.K. hospitals still have wards and open bays.  Space problems causes men and women to be put in the same wards!  This has been reported in the British press.  LINK
  • Patient care is deplorable in some cases.  LINK LINK
  • The Canadian HC system is about to implode.  This was reported on the Fox News Channel.  Canadians are crossing over the U.S. border to get HC. LINK LINK LINK

The list goes on.

Democrat screams at constituents

Freidman on Socialism versus Capitalism

I studied economics using a textbook written by Milton Freidman. 

Friedman puts Donahue under the table. Watch and enjoy.

Is Nancy Pelosi lying … again?

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught in a lie a few weeks ago when she said that the CIA lied to her and Congress.  She had to eat her words, although she never apologized.

Now, Pelosi is making up lies again.  She said that Obama Care protesters at the Democratic Town Hall meetings are carrying swastikas!   What swastikas?   Is Nancy lying … again?   Watch her lie here.

Shame on you, Nancy!

Lloyd Doggett: Did he fib to MSNBC?

Long-time Democratic Congressman from Austin, Texas,  believes the Republicans bushwhacked him.

He faced yesterday a group of inquiring voters and protestors in Austin at a town hall meeting  on Obama-Care.   He didn’t get the softball questions he expected.

He later appeared on MSNBC and called the whole affair staged by the Republicans.  What?  Hey, Rep. Doggett, you are playing in a heavily Democratic district.  What Republicans?

Watch this video to see if Rep. Doggett fibbed.

Congressman Lloyd Doggett on MSNBC

Rep. Doggett said these people were bused in from somewhere else.  Rep. Doggett have you see the Rasmussen poll.  Could it be that some of your constituents are not on board with Obama-care, too?

The liberal Democrats just don’t get it!

Did you think George Bush was a dummy?

Editor’s note --  I have checked the facts on every assertion in this blog.  These facts are TRUE!  The editor has inserted links to other websites verifying the facts as correct.

 Really, forget Democrat or Republican for a minute and think about this.   You Obama supporters, be honest now.   Read the following and tell me  how you would have reacted :

  • If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had given [British Prime Minister] Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and  incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
  • If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to he nonexistent "Austrian language," [instead of German] would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
  • If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fifth of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
  • If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potato as proof of what a dunce he is?
  • If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
  • If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?
  • If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of he is inept he is not on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
  • If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
  • If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and give the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?  Can't think of anything?  Don't worry. He's done all the above in just 5 months -- so be patient -- you've still got three years and seven months to come up with an answer. – author unknown

Why is there no outcry when Obama makes so many gaffes in five months?  The American public, taxpayers, and voters are being propagandized by the left-wing media. 

After that Obama feeling stops sending a “tingling feeling” up the leg of the media, who will pay for Obama’s  naïveté?  Who will pay for the expanding national debt?  Who will fill the jobs driven to China and India by Obama’s energy policies?   Who will protect Israel when the North Koreans and Iranians get the bomb? 

Who is going to hold this president accountable in the media?
