JAMA Publishes Obama Health Care Propaganda as “Science”

The JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) is a second tier journal that has voluntarily launched itself into unqualified irrelevance with its latest “scholarly” medical article: United States Health Care Reform: Progress to Date and Next Steps, by Barack Obama. The LA Times calls it a “scientific study” that poses a threat to “the integrity of scientific publishing.” It is not a scientific study, at all – it is authorized political propaganda for the purpose of painting the president as competent and innovative because he presided over one of the largest government programs in the modern era. However, the writer goes on to say:

It would be difficult, if not impossible, to find another paper in any scientific journal in which a politician was allowed to subjectively analyze his own policy and declare it a success. This is a textbook definition of conflict of interest.

…One-sided commentary is perfectly fine for the campaign trail, but it has no place in a scientific journal, or in the scientific record alongside the discoveries of DNA and black holes. On the contrary, a good scientific paper devotes space to seriously considering the objections of other scientists. Failure to do so would often be grounds for rejection. Rather than ignoring or belittling opposing ideas, it is the author’s job to convince his readers that his data and ideas are superior.

I do find it odd that the writer does not take to task the fact that Obama did not write the article, cull the data for evidence, bring forth the findings, and draw a conclusion. The writer(s) of said article who wrote it with the byline “Barack Obama, JD” merely backed into all of the content based on Herr Obama’s conclusions and self-evaluation of his tenure in office presiding over a totalitarian health care system that he is trying to rescue from embarrassment and extinction.

Clearly, we have entered dark times when even second-tier science journals such as JAMA allow the executive branch to propagandize its ideology and policy in what is supposed to be a “prestigious” peer-reviewed medical journal.


Sharing Passwords is a Federal Crime

Conditioning Kids to Obey

Message to kids from those who serve and protect: obey, or you will be harmed.

Officer George Brice, his muscled and heavily tattooed biceps crossed firmly over his chest and flak jacket, offered a raw, real-life scenario of how a traffic stop might go down for an audience of 35 Albany teenagers.

…”If you get all cocky and give me attitude, I am going to write you up for every possible ticket in the book,” Brice said. “And if you continue to argue and disobey my orders and fight, fight, fight, you could lose your life.”

Was Philando a Police Target?

Philando Castile: a little bit more of what we _may_ know in spite of folks posting these poorly-written articles from (conservative) websites/blogs that are known to be biased and not credible, insisting that Philando was an “armed robbery suspect.” (All the stuff I’ve sorted through on that very notion doesn’t add up, and in fact it has all kinds of holes.)

“He had been pulled over at least 52 times in recent years in and around the Twin Cities and given citations for minor offenses including speeding, driving without a muffler and not wearing a seat belt.

Many charges were dismissed, but Castile pleaded guilty to some, mostly for driving after his license was revoked and driving with no proof of insurance. However, those two charges also were the most frequently dismissed, along with failing to wear a seat belt.

The records show no convictions for more serious crimes.”

Thought: was he targeted, or is 52 times just happenstance? Question: did that cop know exactly who he was pulling over when he went after him?

Soldier Suicides

Another tragedy of the warfare state that is largely left buried and ignored. Twenty veterans commit suicide each day, according to the VA. Butler Shaffer writes on this issue in The Wizards of Ozymandias: Reflections on the Rise & Fall:

I also heard no mention made of what, I suspect, is the principal contributor to the escalating rates of suicide: the insanity of the war system itself, its moral and spiritual bankruptcy. In the time that I watched these hearings, I heard not even an oblique reference to the spiritual costs of persons having their lives robotized and directed by the state for no other purpose than to kill men, women, and children who have been selected as targets. What does it do to an otherwise psychologically and emotionally centered person to have one’s life training as a systematic killer of strangers become the highlight of his of her life?

The Hillary Show Ain’t Over Yet

Are they trying to make the plebes happy?

“Now that inquiry is over, the State Department will reopen its review.”

This is the Bread & Circus, Part 112. So she’s above the law, but not above the US State Department.

Like I always say, folks, vote this November (“participatory democracy”) so you can stop this madness with your citizen “power.”

“It seems like you’re insinuating”… (The Insurgency in Dallas)

I received a shrieking, cowardly email from someone at “42c84e+1f5b26b2b76eko303xy48y9z34@guerrillamail.com” in response to my post yesterday on the killing of Alton Sterling. People often use these temporary emails for sending hate mail for which they do not have to back up, and instead, they can “hit send” and run the other way. Here’s his letter, in full:

“thus far in 2016 killer cops have taken 505 lives by gunshot, as well as 990 in 2015. There’s only one way to stop this, and voting ain’t it.”

Please elaborate on what the “it” is that will stop the spate of killer cops. I felt like I was left hanging after reading this post of yours.

It seems like you’re insinuating that firing upon police officers is a viable option since you’re so utterly convinced that the method of voting is a waste of time. [Bold mine.]

What did you mean, if not that? If voting “ain’t it”, then what the hell is “it”?

It’d be nice if you could add a clarification post to LRC to explain this more thoroughly. I’m sure I’m not the only one that was left with the impression you’re condoning the murder of police as the only remedy.

Don’t respond to this email. It’s a temporary address and I’m closing the window as soon as I hit send.

If this shrill individual had known of my past writings and principles, he would know that I advocate not voting as withdrawing consent from the current system under which we are all, essentially, slaves of our Masters. I have not voted in 20+ years. But then, he acknowledges, in one sentence, that he is aware I am convinced that voting is a “waste of time.” Where did I call for the “murder of police?” Of course, I didn’t, but somehow he is very good at drawing illogical leaps from something I don’t write, and have never written, to his biased conclusions. Because, in essence, this type of insurgency we see in Dallas is not effective, and it will only serve to further enforce the Police State, step up gun control, inspire martial law, and enrich the centralizing powers of Leviathan. This is not a good war, nor one that can be won on the side of Liberty.

Certainly, LewRockwell.com has been a leading proponent of the anti-voting philosophy throughout the years. In a time when the presidential election is a poster child for the demise of western civilization, understanding the importance of not voting should be front-and-center on our radar maps.

But I’ll let Butler Shaffer make the case for not voting and explain that the only way Leviathan can be stopped is by the serfs withdrawing their willingness to be ruled under the guise of “democratic participation.”

The illusion of a short-term reduction in the rate of increase of state power clouds the longer-term consequences inherent in political participation. Political systems derive their power not from guns and prisons, but from the willingness of those who are to be ruled to expend their energies on their behalf.

…At no period in my lifetime have the opportunities for reversing the dehumanizing nature of politically dominated societies been greater. Leviathan is dying as a consequence of its inner contradictions. Those of us who love liberty should rethink any temptations we might have to rush to the deathbed of statism and attempt to revivify its corpse by giving it a transfusion of our energies. The society upon which statism has fed will doubtless undergo a few headaches,fevers, and upset stomachs in the interim. But like a case of the flu, it may be better to let the sickness run its course rather than continue our habit of suppressing the symptoms.

Another Execution By Cop (In St. Paul)

Traffic stop – for a broken tail light on the vehicle. Another execution by a cop at point blank range in St. Paul. Right here, in this video, you see a bloodied man, Philando Castile, groaning right up until his death. Watch the cop, listen to his voice and words and his conversation with the woman, and note his inability to handle the stress and the situation. Yet these idiots are heavily armed, scouring the streets, and programmed to kill.

Executed by Cops

A black man was tasered (as the story goes now), held down by two thugs with badges, and summarily executed. Witnesses: “there was no gun in his hand.”

According to the Washington Post and its Fatal Force ticker, thus far in 2016 killer cops have taken 505 lives by gunshot, as well as 990 in 2015. There’s only one way to stop this, and voting ain’t it.
