President Barack Obama invoked his own anguish over the death of a loved one as he challenged the debunked notion that Democratic efforts to overhaul the nation's health care would include "death panels."
Um, no, AP. It hasn't been "debunked". To believe that it was, is a received delusion.
Why are you lying for Obama? Ah, of course! You have been exposed as nothing more than a propaganda organization, AP. You owe George Soros for his generousity in allowing you to use, as if "news", propaganda, free of charge, from some of his own far-left groups. He scratches your butt; you must also scratch his whenever he makes a request of you. At least this is the public optics, meaning that whenever a story comes from the AP, people will immediately dismiss it as crackpottery and look to reliable sources, such as, say, FOX News, CNS News, NewsMax, World Net Daily, Drudge Report, etc...
Doesn't the AP's description of Obama "sounding professor-like" just make you roll your eyes? Nothing could be further from the truth, unless we're thinking about a far-left professor engaged in brainwashing people.
He talked about her death while answering a question about misinformation being spread about Democratic health care efforts during a town hall style gathering in a high school gymnasium.
"Misinformation being spread"??? Why doesn't the AP make the case that there's "misinformation being spread"? It's insufficient for them to simply throw out these propaganda phrases. It's pisspoor.
Conservatives have called end-of-life counseling in government health care programs like Medicare a step toward euthanasia and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has likened the idea to a bureaucratic "death panel" that would decide whether sick people get to live. Those claims have been widely discredited but the issue remains a political weapon in the increasingly bitter health care debate.
First, the AP obviously doesn't understand (or doesn't care) that not everyone who opposes Obamacare is a "conservative". But this simply calling dissidents "conservatives" suits the propaganda purposes of the Left.
Again, no, there has been no real discreditation. There has only been denial. And demonization of those warning of the death panels.
Again, the Death Panels aren't a figment of anyone's imagination. Why, after all, has the "End-of-Life Counselling" been removed from the proposed legislation if the Death Panels warning wasn't for real? Does anyone really think that it was removed for any reason other than Sarah Palin correctly exposed it?
Although the L.A. Times, linked in the paragraph above, also claims that the Death Panels warning is "widely discredited" (again, just like the AP, without making the case to back up this assertion), they nevertheless do give a lot more useful information than does the AP.
As for the Regime's claim that it removed the provision because it was "too confusing", well, actually, they removed it because they were caught red-handed with their pants down. You see, when a provision is made to be "too confusing", this means that the provision leaves the door wide open to whatever the Regime has planned to be based thereupon.
Death Panels, sure, that'd certainly be possible, given the suspicious, ominous ambiguity of the EOL provision.
And once you add to the "confusing" EOL provision the fact that Obama has appointed two frightening fellows to czarships in the Regime, such fellows being well-known for their scary views on population control, euthanasia, abortion, forced sterilization, etc... Well, you connect the dots to find the Hidden Agenda. It's there, and it's freaking obvious!
John Holdren, for one. If this guy doesn't creep you out big-time, then you creep me out big-time! He's a lunatic who once recommended giving human rights to trees so that they could launch lawsuits. How insane can one get?
Ezekiel Emanuel, for another. Yep, Rahm Emanuel's brother. Get a load of his frighteningly bizarre, dogmatic philosophy about discrimination against the elderly:
He explicitly defends discrimination against older patients: "Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years" (Lancet, Jan. 31).To me, this sounds like some gobbleddygook that one would expect to come from the likes of a Josef Mengele. Evildoers will come up with whatever gobbleddygook to attempt to rationalize their hateful evilness. Just like George Soros rationalized his own participation in the infamously evil Holocaust via willing collaboration with the Nazis, stealing for them from the Jews. For those who don't know, Soros, a multi-billionaire, is, for all intents and purposes, the de-facto leader of the Left in America and is effectively Obama's Puppetmaster.
Well, I think that what we can deduce from the above is that the AP is biased and that Sarah Palin was very obviously right about the Obama Death Panels. All you have to do is look at all the facts and connect them together like dots to see the big picture.
I'd also like to add that the Regime would like nothing better than to try to paint the many, many Americans (undeniably the majority, according to the polls) who oppose Obamacare as "fringe element lunatics to be laughed at and dismissed". The Regime has successfully, along with the Big Media and even a bunch of brainfarting conservative talking heads, thusly marginalized the many, many Americans who simply want Obama to release his original, valid, long-form birth certificate as proof of his being born on American soil. After all, the undeniable fact is that Obama never proved to anyone, nor did anyone in authority ever ask him to, that he was born on American soil (an issue entirely separate from his US citizenship, which isn't in question at all) as required by the Constitution for him to legally, Constitutionally be President. The undeniable fact is that we really don't know for sure whether Obama is actually the President or an impostor, a fraudster. The document the Obamites uttered during the campaign has been exposed as a forgery (just like the phony Kenyan birth certificate recently uttered by a malicious hoaxster to attempt to make serious folks look bad), and even if it was for real, wouldn't be valid proof of country of birth, as explained over and over again... a fact ignored by the Big Media and even some conservative talking heads who don't seem to be thinking straight on this file.
