» Obamacare: Mandatory HIV Tests Coming?

Comments Off on » Obamacare: Mandatory HIV Tests Coming?

As you read this, remember, Executive Orders ARE NOT law.
drhealth

Obama seems to be addicted to signing unconstitutional executive orders. The latest mandate from on high may eventually result in mandatory HIV tests for everybody between the ages of 15 and 65 years.

Of course, for now, this is just a “recommendation.” Funny thing about government recommendations, though, as that they eventually become mandatory, usually under some specious excuse of another.

For instance, protecting children from guns or evil homeschoolers.

Governments of every stripe love exploiting children.

From Obama’s EO, posted on the White House website:

Based on these and other data, recommendations for HIV testing and treatment have changed. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends that clinicians screen all individuals ages 15 to 65 years for HIV, and the Department of Health and Human Services Guidelines for Use of Antiretroviral Agents now recommends offering treatment to all adolescents and adults diagnosed with HIV.

Lucky for us, we won’t have to worry about this until 2015 when the “employer mandate” finally kicks in.

Eric Holder Says Zimmerman Can’t have his Gun back, Florida law says HE Can

Comments Off on Eric Holder Says Zimmerman Can’t have his Gun back, Florida law says HE Can

The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial – including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer’s gun.

Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month’s end.

The development is a sign that the criminal section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is seriously investigating Zimmerman to determine if federal civil rights charges should be filed.

Assistant state attorney Bernie de la Rionda showed the jury George Zimmerman's gun during his closing argument on July 11. Zimmerman defended himself with the weapon, killing Trayvon Martin

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter on Sunday in a Florida courtroom, but civil rights violations provide an exception to the U.S. Constitution’s protection against double jeopardy after a defendant has been found ‘not guilty’ in a state or local jurisdiction.

WESH-TV in Orlando reported Thursday afternoon that police had confirmed the evidence ‘hold,’ meaning that everything related to the trial, from Zimmerman’s gun to the Skittles and iced tea Martin was carrying when the pair’s altercation began, will remain in the hands of law enforcement.

The executive order — “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions” — was released last Friday in the late afternoon. The Friday before, the White House issued data showing that its payroll had increased 14.1 percent over the last year of the Bush administration.

 

President Barack Obama’s new order outlines procedures for government agencies to follow in preparing plans so they can communicate with “the public, allies, and other nations” should a national crisis occur, CNBC reports.

TN gets $3.1 million to promote Obamacare to the unaware

Comments Off on TN gets $3.1 million to promote Obamacare to the unaware

NASHVILLE — Are you a Tennessee resident willing to serve as a recruiting tool for your government?

Perhaps a job as a certified application counselor for Obamacare is right for you.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced last week that they are awarding $150 million in taxpayer money to 1,100 health care centers across the nation.

The goal — tell as many Americans as possible about Obamacare.  Obamacare-impact

Tennessee will get $3.1 million of that money, spread among 26 health care centers. Those facilities are now in search of 69 qualified workers to promote the program.

Jacksboro’s Community Health Center of East Tennessee will receive a $75,000 piece of that pie.

CEO Theresa Dabney said she knows the type of candidate best suited to serve.

The qualifications are simple, yet precise.

“You have to be an actual person who can sit with a patient and navigate them in the right direction,” Dabney said.

“We will train people to take applications and help each person find the coverage that meets their needs in the health exchange.”

Other job tasks, as described by Dabney, include printing pamphlets and flyers promoting Obamacare, setting up booths at community health fairs and actively recruiting the unaware into the program.  hhsgov-open_icon

The federal government projects that, if chosen, applicants will help direct more than 70,000 people do something that they do not know how to do for themselves.

Tennessee Watchdog unsuccessfully attempted to reach several other community health centers that will receive this money, including Christ Community Health Services of Memphis, which will receive the largest sum in the state, $319,337.

Training begins Oct. 1. Counselors officially go to work on Jan. 1, so time is of the essence.

Poll: 34% of Americans Say First Amendment Too Extreme

Comments Off on Poll: 34% of Americans Say First Amendment Too Extreme

Too extreme? Amazing!

A recent national poll shows that 34% of Americans believe the First Amendment “goes too far in the rights it guarantees.”

The Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center, based at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, conducted the national survey of 1,006 American adults in May.

That belief is up 13% compared to the results of the same survey conducted last year, the largest single-year increase since the center started the annual surveys in 1997.

“It’s unsettling to see a third of Americans view the First Amendment as providing too much liberty,” said First Amendment Center President Ken Paulson in a press release. “This underscores the need for more First Amendment education.”

“If we truly understand the essential role of these freedoms in a democracy, we’re more likely to protect them.”

For reference, the text of the First Amendment reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The survey also asked respondents other related questions:

– When asked to name the five specific rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, only the freedom of speech was named by the majority of the respondents at 59%. Less than a quarter of the respondents, 24%, named freedom of religion. 14% recalled the freedom of the press and 11% remembered the freedom of peaceful assembly. Only 4% knew of their guaranteed freedom to petition the government.

– 36% of respondents could not name any of the five specific rights listed in the First Amendment.

– 31% agreed that musicians should not be allowed to sing songs with lyrics that might offend others.

– 44% favor court orders requiring journalists to give up their news sources.

– 80% agreed that the news media act as an independent “watch dog” over government on behalf of the people.

“Americans remain generally supportive of First Amendment freedoms,” said Newseum Institute CEO Gene Policinski in a press release. “But the inability of most to even name the freedoms, combined with the increase of those who think the freedoms go too far, shows how quickly that support can erode.”

“As a nation, we must better prepare our fellow and future citizens for the hard decision of defending core freedoms against those who would damage or limit them by violence or by law.”

Unfortunately our core freedoms are already under attack.

Lamar Alexander’s attempt to exploit Paul backfires

Comments Off on Lamar Alexander’s attempt to exploit Paul backfires

“Nobody wants to say no to Lamar Alexander.” At least that’s what Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., claims in Alexander’s latest campaign ad. But the ad, like Alexander, isn’t quite what it seems.

In the television ad, Alexander, a self-proclaimed conservative whose voting record is more in line with big-government liberals, plays a dubious trick on voters. It turns out that the clip of Paul seemingly praising Alexander featured in the ad is taken out of context in an attempt to appeal to the fiscal conservatives and tea party supporters who view Paul as a hero.

Alexander’s dodgy decision backfired badly.

Sen. Paul’s full comments, which are available on YouTube, are, “He goes around, he talks to everyone and nobody wants to say no to Lamar Alexander.” Rather than the resounding endorsement the ad makes Paul’s statement appear, the comment seems to imply that Alexander is known in the Senate for glad-handing.

A spokesman for Sen. Paul told the Times Free Press that despite what the ad attempted to imply, Paul had not endorsed Alexander. “The footage that Sen. Alexander’s campaign is using is from a public press conference in regards to a bill they both cosponsored,” said Sergio Gor, an aide to Sen. Paul. “At this time, Senator Paul has not made an endorsement in this race.”

In fact, given Paul’s principled stances aimed at limiting the size and scope of government, it seems that Paul would be more likely to endorse one of Alexander’s opponents in next summer’s GOP Primary than to endorse “Liberal Lamar.”

Sens. Paul and Alexander have been at odds on a number of important votes during Paul’s brief tenure in the U.S. Senate.
