Bette Midler Blames Current
Mental Health Woes on Reagan

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 1/18/2013 1:35:46 AM

Bette Midler is the latest liberal to follow the wisdom of former Obama administration official Rahm Emmanuel - "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste." Midler fired off a tweet today that used the country´s current mental health conversation post Sandy Hook as a way to pound her ideological enemy, the late Ronald Reagan.

Comments:
I have always thought of Midler AS a mental health woe. And if I was as pretty as her, I think I´d shut up and go find a bridge to hide under and scare children.

Another lie from the left.

Civil libertarian activists forced the closure of mental health institutions (and facilities for the mentally retarded) around the country because the mentally ill and mentally retarded supposedly have "rights" to be part of society (i.e., live with minimal or no supervision). These same activists forced laws forbidding anyone else from knowing the mental diagnosis or issues of those thus integrated. For example, you have no right to know if a mentally retarded person living next to you is a sexual predator, or if the mentally ill person is prone to violence. And it´s the law that these people can vote, too, and they can be accompanied by a nice "case worker" in the voting booth.

Leftists had problems with the mentally ill and mentally retarded being "warehoused", and certainly in former times care was dreadful. But now it´s not, yet the facilities are being closed one by one. The activists claim it´s not OK to have separate facilities for the mentally ill or mentally retarded, conveniently forgetting that we have separate facilities for the physically ill (hospitals), the aged (nursing homes, assisted living facilities), age-restricted communities (prevalent in Arizona), and even the rich (gated communities).

Bette Midler is just repeating the same lies over and over. Having created the problem in the first place, leftist whores still want to blame anyone but themselves for the consequences of their actions. She also is stupid: ironically, in Newtown, Connecticut, there used to be a regional mental health facility where Adam Lanza might have been able to get treatment, but it was closed by pressure from civil libertarian activists in 1995.

Shut up and sing, Bette.

Here we go with the same old lies... Yes, the ACLU was behind a lot of it and in the state of California it was Pat Brown (Democrat and father of Jerry aka Edmund Jr.) who was behind emptying the mental institutions. The legislatiin passed under Brown and the actual releases took place after Reagan took over as Governor. But he couldn´t stop what already went through the courts. He had NOTHING to do with it but the left loves to blame him. They repeat lies over and over until people believe them to be the truth. That is their modus operandus.

Why doesn´t she blame the Founders who gave us the right to defend ourselves with firearms a/k/a guns. She is another ignoramous. Reagan was forced by law to release the mentally insane.

Sorry to hear about Bette Midler´s ongoing mental health problems, but I hardly think Ronald Reagan is to blame.

Have to agree with #5. The entire story is contained in the headline.You need read no further. Kinda like standing in line at the checkout, glancing at the cover of the tabloids. Very convenient, I must say.

Nice of old Bette to blame our current health care "woes" on President Reagan. Unfortunately he is no longer here to comment. So I´ll say this. Bette you need to use the wind beneath your wings, take your twin sister Joy Behar and fly on back to your padded cells. That way we won´t have to be subjected to your mindless blabberings any further.

Remember this woman when she was making her way to stardom? She would grab her breasts, squeeze them then shake them at the host on the TV show? Or talk about crude sex she was indulging in? Or the drugs she was using? I think we can all pretty well judge where THIS slut´s mental health issues originated.

Maybe Bette can explain to those of us who had mentally ill relatives in the 1970s why we could not have them committed to institutions, why we had to watch helplessly while they became homeless, why we worried about what they would do to themselves or others. I´ve heard the Reagan blame from the left for a long time. It´s what they´re told. They are too dim to find out for themselves.

What #1 and #2 said. IMHO, most of the country doesn´t even know WHO or WHAT Bette Midler is or was. One more used up "comedian/singer" with the same old brainless rants. Who cares?

Even a liberal actress of Midler´s limited mental capacity cannot be this stupid naturally She has to be brainwashed, programmed and automated.

Pathetic that the people of the US listen to such tripe!

This, from a woman who dresses up like a fish and rides out onstage in a motorized wheelchair. She´s had her own personal mental health woe long before Reagan was President and long after.

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. (Snip) Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

The Obama administration has turned down an urgent appeal from Egypt’s government for the delivery of U.S. Apache attack helicopters needed for counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula. U.S. officials and a Western diplomat said the 10 AH-64 attack helicopters had been blocked from delivery in October in response to the administration’s opposition to the military ouster of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi last year.

OH NO! Obama may have to cut third vacation
THIS YEAR short because of Ukraine

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

Only 39 percent of registered New York City voters believe Mayor Bill de Blasio´s has done a "good" or "excellent" job during his first two months in City Hall, according to a poll released Thursday. More than half of the voters polled rated his performance "fair" or "poor," according to the Marist College/The Wall Street Journal/WNBC poll. Just ten percent of voters gave de Blasio the highest "excellent" mark while 29 percent categorized his performance as good. De Blasio, the city´s first Democratic mayor in 20 years, took office January 1

Cop-killer case sinks
Obama Justice nominee

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

Obama to Russia: There

Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 3/1/2014 7:27:49 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
