DR. PAUL KENGOR: GEORGE SCHROEDER, M.D. - WITNESS TO THE WALL AND TO SOCIALIZED MEDICINE

It’s not often that our “V&V Q&A” manages to combine the Berlin Wall and American healthcare—both very much in the news this week—but this one achieves just that. In this latest Q&A, Dr. Paul Kengor, executive director of the Center, interviews Dr. George Schroeder, a physician working in America and a brand new American citizen who was born and raised not far from the Berlin Wall. Today, Dr. Schroeder fights the fight for freedom, including a free-market healthcare system in America. He is eager to share his unique experiences as a physician who has practiced throughout the world.

THE PREVARICATING PROSECUTOR III, NO. 2: AUDITOR’S OFFICE ESTABLISHES INVOLUNTARY SEPERATION
State's Attorney

Assistant State's Attorney
Cynthia Feland
Assistant State's Attorney
Lloyd Suhr

Feland charged and convicted Blunt of not collecting moving expenses from his “friend” Dave Spencer. However, a series of notes in the NDSAO audit working papers show that this issue was fully reviewed by State Auditors with the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office (NDAGO) and that WSI (Blunt) acted appropriately (legally) in not collecting the money since Spencer’s resignation was not “voluntary.”

Contrary to Feland’s and Suhr’s assertions to Judge Romanick and the jury, the issue of Dave Spencer’s sick leave and moving expenses were settled before the audit was ever published in October of 2006. And these prosecutors were clearly advised of this fact no less than 12 months BEFORE Feland lied to the Judge to add these “crimes” against Blunt just weeks before his trial.

DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON: PSYCHING OUT THE STOCK MARKET

Even those who devote their full time to studying markets are frequently humbled when the market confounds their expectations. The reason is simple: individual stocks and market indexes will rise if more people want to buy them than sell them, and fall if more people want to sell. Question: How can anyone know what millions of other people will choose to do on any given day of the week or any year on the calendar?

SALLLY MORRIS: CHALK ANOTHER ONE UP FOR “DIVERSITY” KILLING

When will we finally stand up and scream “ENOUGH!”?  Enough of hearing the Left bawling that we’re “racist” if we employ profiling that fends of attacks and saves lives; enough of whitewashing honor killings and child and spousal abuse by calling it “domestic disturbance”; enough of special, state-funded, interest-free mortgage schemes exclusively to benefit Muslims who refuse to adjust to our financial practices; enough of prayer rooms and footbaths in public facilities – places where Christians and Jews may not post the Ten Commandments and where we may not sing Christmas carols; enough of Saudi students who develop into suicide pilots; enough of insane foreigners in robes jerking our airlines around; enough of taxpayers sending Muslim congressmen to Mecca for religious duties; enough strangulation of our sacred American liberty because demented Muslims are threatening to blow us up!

DENNIS PATRICK: THE DEVIOUS HATE CRIMES LAW

Will Major Hasan be charged with a hate crime under the NDAA that Obama just signed into law? Probably not. His victims were not a protected class of citizens. However, a case may be made that he is an Islamic extremist falling into the category of a home-grown, self-radicalized terrorist.

DR. PAUL KENGOR: ALEUTIAN CAMPAIGN - THE FORGOTTEN BATTLE OF WW II

In anticipation of Veterans Day next week, Dr. Paul Kengor recalls an epic battle that, to this day, is known of by relatively few people. In spite of the battle’s lack of fame, he explains, “Some believe it was the bloodiest battle of World War II.” In “The Forgotten Battle of World War II: Remembering the Aleutian Campaign”, professor of political science and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College—Dr. Kengor—marks Veterans Day by commemorating “those who served in some faraway place long ago, many of whom paid that ultimate sacrifice.

Lloyd Suhr

In my opinion, it has now come to the point where – for the good of Burleigh County, the citizens of the state of North Dakota, and for the assurance of justice -- that Feland, Suhr, and Riha be placed under review for their actions. Their behavior appears to me to be clearly in violation of the mandates of their profession and professional obligations. As free men of a society whose very foundation is the just application of law,  it is critical that each of us as citizens demand that a full and unobstructed investigation is undertaken into the ethical and possibly illegal behavior/actions of Feland, Suhr, Riha, and other individuals so that their misconduct is brought into the antiseptic light of day and thus can not be swept under the rug of local politics.

MARK STEYN: MULTICULTURAL ILLUSIONS KILL - NO STRATEGY TO DEFEND AGAINST IDEOLOGY

What happened to those men and women at Fort Hood had a horrible symbolism: Members of the best trained, best equipped fighting force on the planet gunned down by a guy who said a few goofy things no one took seriously. And that’s the problem: America has the best troops and fiercest firepower, but no strategy for throttling the ideology that drives the enemy – in Afghanistan and in Texas.

FORMER AMA PRESIDENT GIVES BRILLIANT ANALYSIS OF OBAMACARE

This video produced by The Wall Street Journal is a brilliant discussion about medicine and freedom. Dr. Donald Palmisano, former President of The American Medical Association (AMA) and head of dissident group of over 10,000 doctors called Coalition to Protect Patient Rights, will try to force AMA to drop their "support" for the public option, calling current legislation "anathema to Doctors and Patients". This is one great video! Highly recommended!

LYNN BERGMAN: MICE IN BIG TENT SCARE ELEPHANTS, A FEW RABID!

RINOs are few in number; the term “Liberal Republican” is practically an oxymoron, representing only 1% of potential voters. These “mice in the big tent” are scary to the elephants but the real problem begins to materialize when the “mice in the big tent” are placed on the ballot! RINOs in office, working clandestinely and/or openly with Democrats would ultimately destroy the Republican Party “brand”.

DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON: SEX, LIFE, AND DEATH

These double murders don’t occur in a void, but in a social context against the cultural backdrop formed by our values. Please don’t construe what follows as suggesting collective guilt. What I will suggest is that men murdering their lovers and children is the most extreme manifestation of thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs that tend toward death and away from life. The perpetrators are responsible for their crimes. Let’s look around us to see if there are trends in thought in our society that are nourishing a cultural ethos that depreciates the value of individual lives.

CAPITALIST EXCESS? A REVIEW OF MICHAEL MOORE’S “CAPITALISM”

Michael Moore incoherently argues that we need to replace “capitalism” with a true American system: “Democracy.”

 

Ironically, a true capitalist system is the best and most pure system of the democratic ideal: individual consumers and producers engaging in purely voluntary and mutually beneficial exchanges. This could not be more different from government and politics, the hallmarks of which are coercion and dishonesty.

WORKCOMPCENTRAL AUTHOR JOSEPH PADUDA WEIGHS IN ON SANDY BLUNT PERSECUTION

Few things I've encountered in my 25-plus years in the insurance business are as outrageous as the prosecution of Sandy Blunt, the former head of the North Dakota work comp fund.

I have no idea what in the hell is going on up in North Dakota, but I do know this. Sandy Blunt is a decent, honest, very capable guy who has been absolutely screwed, apparently in no small part by a prosecutor who broke the law.

DENNIS PATRICK: DEADLY DITHERING AND DALLYING

For all Obama’s eloquence, he is indecisive. Has no set strategy, yet he demurs on General McChrystal’s recommendations. Victory, he told the nation recently on national TV in an allusion to the surrender of Japan, is not something with which he is comfortable. The ongoing conflict in Afghanistan is rapidly devolving into a protracted conflict by political fiat

MARK STEYN: REALITY CHECK ON THE OBAMA AS CAESAR CULT

At some point the Caesar cult has to manifest itself in an achievement – I mean a real achievement, not merely some dud prize handed out by Norwegian lefties. Afghanistan is his now: Notwithstanding “years of drift”, whether it winds up as victory or defeat or is his call. It’s Obama’s war. It’s Obama’s economy. The stimulus bill is his stimulus, and for $787 billion it created 30,000 new jobs (according to the government) or (according to the Associated Press) 25,000. Either way, you do the math. It’s Obama’s unemployment rate, Obama’s dollar, Obama’s  debt. Pace Valerie Jarrett, the truth is you are the power. And those on the receiving end of it are going to be speaking a lot louder in the months ahead.

DR. MARVIN FOLKERTSMA: WASHINGTON’S MASQUE OF THE READ DEATH

All of which leaves some with the feeling that what we are witnessing in our nation’s capital today simply cannot go on indefinitely; it is not “sustainable,” to use currently fashionable gibberish. A day of reckoning awaits us; or an apocalypse, call it what you will. Time and repetition have attenuated the shock value of facile comparisons to the Great Depression or banana republic economics. Something more profound is at work here, more disturbing.

LYNN BERGMAN: MESSAGE TO THE AFGAN PEOPLE – EXPECT LITTLE FROM OBAMA

The people of Afghanistan have a unique opportunity to choose the path that the Honduran people (through their institutions of representative democracy) have courageously chosen in ousting a corrupt and dishonest leader in hopes of something better. And WE HERE IN AMERICA HAD BETTER WAKE UP, because we are only a few procedural votes, some closed door dealings, and a Presidential signature away from losing much of what so many have fought and died for… this right of the individual to act responsibly and choose for himself what is in his own best interest, this constitutional guarantee that we have TAKEN FOR GRANTED for so long… what we call “FREEDOM”. We must all take action… NOW!

Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson: Cap-and-Trade Update

The bad news is that, in spite of the strategic retreat of scientists unable to deny earth’s present cooling trend and the dim prospects for a strong international agreement in December, Congress may still pass C&T legislation. The progressive/environmentalist power base of the Democratic Party will rally behind such a bill. It will be joined by some odd bedfellows, e.g., powerful corporations like Goldman Sachs eager to make fortunes by establishing a market for buying and selling CO2 permits.

SALLY MORRIS: SLAVERY IN A NEW AGE

The motivation for tolerance from the Left is clear.  Democrats see carloads of illicit votes.  They use their dupes’ maudlin sentiment to insist on providing free medical care, “education”, shelter, food and whatever else would encourage the bolt for the border.  The cold calculation of a corrupt political machine and hanky-wringing do-gooders are behind this on one side.

But except for a few lone voices in the wilderness, Republicans remain strangely silent, or even join in rolling out the red carpet.  Why?  Where is the leadership to maintain the integrity of our border?

DR. R.B.A. DI MUCCIO: HOPE VS. APPEASEMENT

It may have been Obama’s talk of ‘hope’ that won over the Nobel Committee. But hope cannot be the strategic underpinning of U.S. foreign policy, any more than it should have been the lynchpin of Neville Chamberlain’s approach to dealing with Hitler or of successive U.S. administrations in handling Pyongyang. Today, as then, the stakes are far too high.

LYNN BERGMAN: THE “GENERATION A” SOLUTION

The “Leave Us Alone” coalition (1/5 to 1/4 of voters) competes with the “Takings” coalition (1/4 to 1/3 of voters) for the hearts and minds of the “Disinterested” coalition (near 1/2 of voters). In the extreme, we are referring here to antisocial right wing libertarians, guilt-ridden left wing socialists, and self-indulgent, if patriotic, independents; from these extremes, the exaggerated stereotypes are formed that make for today’s rabid political discourse. The proof of this description of the “political competition” is obvious; the “Leave Us Alone” and “Takings” coalitions rarely engage in direct attacks on “Independents”. Why? Because they desperately need Independents come Election Day…
