Hillary’s Latest Two Whoppers

Let’s see – how about the one where a poor pregnant woman was denied care and both she and her baby died?

Sen. Hillary Clinton will stop telling an emotional story about a uninsured pregnant woman who died after being denied medical care, Clinton’s campaign said.

In the story, Clinton describes a woman from rural Ohio who was making minimum wage at a local pizza shop. The woman, who was uninsured, became pregnant.

Clinton said the woman ran into trouble and went to a hospital in a nearby county but was denied treatment because she couldn’t afford a $100 payment.

In her speeches, Clinton said the woman later was taken to the hospital by ambulance and lost the baby. The young woman was then taken by helicopter to a Columbus hospital where she died of complications.

Just one little problem with all that of course:

Hospital Chief Executive Officer Rick Castrop in a statement said, “we reviewed the medical and patient accounts of the patient” after she was named in a newspaper story about Clinton’s stump speech.

“There is no indication that she was ever denied medical care at any time, for any reason. We clearly reject any perception that we ever denied any care to this woman.”

A hospital spokesperson confirmed to CNN the woman had insurance. She said the hospital decided to come forward after people in the community began to question if they had denied her care.

Its always so horrible when people start checking up on these things. I really think the issue is that the Clintons could always get away with this before because the media would hide it for them. Now a) the media is for Obama and b) independent fact checkers can get their stories out via the web.

But the excuse given is “we got told this and didn’t have any reason to disbelieve it”.
Isn’t this what they accuse President Bush of doing with the Iraq War intelligence?

However, the real whopper of the weekend is this one:

Clinton told a convention of Democrats in North Dakota when her tax forms were made public: “Don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against rich people. As a matter of fact my husband, much to my surprise and his, has made a lot of money since he left the White House by doing what he loves most – talking to people.”

Surprise? You and ex-President Pantsdown have been grubbing for every penny for years. I don’t care if you earned the money – I wish you had earned twice as much. It depresses me that there are enough idiots who will willingly pay you two to lie to them, but that’s another story. Just don’t tell us you are “surprised”.

Congratulations on Your Attempt To Murder Your Sister

As if this story couldn’t get any sicker:

A young Arab man from a small town in northern Israel was arrested on Tuesday after he shot and critically wounded his 19-year-old sister to “preserve family honor.”

According to the 24-year-old attacker’s own testimony, proudly given to police and rescue personnel that he himself called, he shot his sister twice in the head and then repeatedly kicked all parts of her body. Believing the girl to be dead, the young man went to report the deed to his family, which warmly congratulated him for preserving their honor in the context of Islamic law.

Meanwhile, the girl was rushed to an area hospital where she underwent emergency surgery. She remains in unstable and serious condition.

The girl’s crime, according to her brother and would-be killer, was that she had “befriended” other men following her divorce.

We await the outraged comments of the world feminist community.  But why wait?  This sort of thing occurs multiple times every day in the Muslim world.  The blood of these women cries out for vengeance.  They just won’t get any from Western Liberals.

Man Dead 8 Years Found in Apartment

While his severely mentally ill roommate continued to live there with the body all that time?
clipped from www.smh.com.au
The body of a man, believed to be dead for nearly a decade, has
been found in a UK flat, where a council tenant continued to
live.
The body of the tenant’s former lodger was discovered by council
workers on a sofa in the lounge room after neighbours reported a
foul smell.
Police believe the dead man was in his 70s.
Police initially arrested the tenant living in the unit but are
no longer treating the death as suspicious.
They believe the elderly tenant failed to report the death
because he suffers severe mental health problems.
Bristol Coroner’s Court will open an inquest today and Bristol
City Council has launched an internal inquiry into how the corpse
went unnoticed for so long.
A spokesman for the council says it’s suspected the body was
there for at least eight years.

Cultural Differences

Now imagine you’re a Jewish country, wherein the prevailing attitude is to value life, and on your borders are a large population that embraces a philosophy in which death trumps.
Seems to me that building a wall is the most moderate approach that comes to mind.

Israel was getting about one suicide bombing per day.

Then they start building a separation barrier, and while the world kvetched and moaned about how terrible this was, the number of suicide bombers and other attacks dropped to almost nothing.
Ayman Taha, a spokesman for Hamas, the terrorist organization popularly elected by the Palestinians, praised the bombing as a “glorious act.”

So, just to make sure we’re clear, walking up to unarmed, unsuspecting civilians and blowing them up is “glorious.”

It is so “glorious” in fact that in Gaza, gunmen fired in the air and relatives of the bombers passed out sweets to celebrate the murders, according to the Associated Press.

This was the same reaction much of the Palestinian populous had right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. They showed the celebration on the TV news for about a minute before it vanished forever into the mist of political expediency.

Grandma Is Keeping Me Warm

Apparently – soon to be a literal truth, not a figurative one.
clipped from www.telegraph.co.uk

Mourners shivering in a chapel are to be kept warm using “body heat” generated from cremating their loved ones.

The idea will be tried at a crematorium near Manchester where grieving friends and relatives have complained of the cold during services.

Tameside council will use heat from cremating bodies to keep the mourners warm at Dukinfield Crematorium.

Town hall chiefs say the heat generated will be enough to power the boiler and light the chapel. But they admit it is a “sensitive” issue and have promised to consult clergy and the wider community.

Robin Monk, the environment chief of Tameside Council, said: “I’m not sure how people will react, but we don’t want to upset anyone. We will carry out full consultation with priests, vicars and the public before a decision is taken.”
