Another Rally that the Media Missed – Doctors Storm DC!

Last weekend while researching for my Blog Talk Radio show, I stumbled across this website. It is a website dedicated to debunking the government spin on healthcare reform. It is written by and for practicing physicians. It is loaded with excellent information on the proposals from the physicians perspective. I recommend it for anyone trying to sift through the rhetoric.

More than 1,000 physicians from all 50 states converged on Washington, D.C., on Thursday in demonstration against controversial healthcare legislation and the American Medical Association, a leading advocate of H.R. 3200, also known as America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.

Wearing surgical scrubs, chanting and brandishing signs, the doctors picketed on the front steps of the AMA’s building and delivered a very powerful message.

AAPS President Mark Kellen, M.D., of Rockford, Ill., writes: “The entire logic of H.R. 3200 is flawed and is based on decreasing patient choices and ultimately transferring control to the federal government…. The bill has no laudable parts.”

American Association of Pysicians and Surgeons sue the White House

The Office of the President and other White House officials are defendants in a free speech lawsuit filed by a prominent physician group, and a non-profit advocate for inner-city poor.

The White House has “unlawfully collected information on political speech,” thereby illegally using the power of the White House to combat opposition to its plans for health care reform. The suit was filed by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).

Who is AAPS?

Take Back Medicine is a project of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons

Since 1943, the mission of AAPS has been to preserve the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship from third-party intrusion

A member-supported organization, AAPS accepts no government grants, or pharmaceutical or other corporate funding.

I highly recommend you go to their site and check out their section on MythBusters that explains various claims being made by supporters of HR 3200. Also watch their video town hall below:

ACORN: streaming video or a stream of videos… the truth comes out!

After news broke late last week that undercover videos were surfacing on Breitbart’s Big Government website that showed ACORN for what it really is, the rhetoric that this was just a right wing smear campaign quickly followed. Well, now there are four cities worth of videos  available on line, all of which show the same thing. In each ACORN employees are in the compromised position of working to help “a pimp and a hooker” defraud the government in an attempt to gain a home loan and avoid taxes for the purposes of setting up a brothel. Even worse they do not bat an eye when the undercover pair, “mention” that as part of their operation they will be bringing a dozen under age girls in from El Salvador to “work” for them. 

This scam is played out four times in Baltimore, MD; Washington D.C.; Brooklyn, NY; and most recently San Bernadino, CA. I have previously posted the Baltimore and DC videos. Below you will find the NY and CA videos. And rumor has it there are more to come… So why are they releasing these tapes one at a time? The Breitbart team was worried that if they released them all at once the mainstream media would bury this story but if they release them over time the story wouldn’t go away as easily. 

There is good news here. Thanks to the efforts of James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and the Breitbart team the truth about ACORN and its’ corruption have been exposed. So far this has resulted in the following: 

The firing of ACORN employees involved.

The US Census Bureau terminated its’ relationship with ACORN.

The US Senate voting 83 – 7 to cut off funding to ACORN Housing

The revelation ACORN, Inc.; the parent organization of all things ACORN; forfeited its corporate charter in Maryland in 2006. ACORN Housing forfeited its corporate charter in 2008. Any ACORN office in the state of Maryland is potentially operating illegally. 

Senator Boehner, Senator Cantor and Senator Camp call for IRS to sever all ties with ACORN. Currently, ACORN receives some government funding to assist low income families with income tax preparation.

When you add these actions to the fourteen investigations of ACORN’s involvement in voter fraud and the State of Louisiana’s investigation into ACORN’s operations in their state; the truth about the depth of corruption in this organization may finally come to light.
