Winter crisis cripples the NHS: Up to
55,000 operations are postponed,
patients are to be put on mixed wards

Hospitals were last night ordered to cancel thousands of operations to try to tackle a winter health crisis. In an unprecedented move, NHS chiefs demanded radical action to free up beds and medical staff. Casualty units are under ´extreme and sustained´ pressure with flu cases on the rise. Up to 55,000 non-urgent operations will be postponed until February, along with thousands of outpatient appointments and scans. (Snip) Two NHS bosses said the pressures were the worst in 30 years with one doctor apologising for ´Third World´ conditions. The first week of January is always busy with patients coming in with flu

Import the tax-consuming Third World to the UK, give them access to "free" health care, then wonder why there´s a shortage of medical services.

´Medicare for all´ is a frequently-seen bumper sticker these days.

Well, the NHS is the real-world implementation of Medicare for all. And it is a predictable disaster.

This is what the left wants for all of us.
Of course they will go to private doctors and hospitals themselves.

I would not be surprised if a good number of the ill are from other countries with refugee status like Syria and N. Africa where midieval (sp?) illnesses are returning. UK and Europe sown their seeds by allowing millions of 10th World dregs enter their countries. It is already happening here in the US.

The Food and Drug Administration announced a voluntary recall of a widely prescribed blood pressure medication made in China, reviving fears about the safety of imported drugs. Three companies that sell the generic drug, valsartan, in the United States agreed to recall it after the FDA said might be tainted by N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), considered a probable human carcinogen. The agency is still investigating, but said the contamination was believed to be related to changes in the way that valsartan was manufactured. (Snip) It is distributed in the United States by three companies: Major Pharmaceuticals; Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd.: and Solco Healthcare.

Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee Sen. Bob Corker denounced President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit on Monday, saying the Mr. Trump made America look weak at the summit. “I just felt that the president’s comments made us look as a nation like a pushover. I was disappointed by that,” Mr. Corker, a Republican, told reporters on Capitol Hill, shortly after the summit with Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He expressed disappointment in Mr. Trump for not defending U.S. intelligence agencies in the face of Russian interference. “I just don’t know where that comes from

It’s hard to believe that a young-adult book about a male teenager on an exciting adventure might be considered controversial. But we live in increasingly contentious times when everything — from where you eat to what you wear — is suffused with politics. “Camp Valor,” a young-adult thriller by Scott McEwen and Hof Williams out this month, tracks a secretive government training camp for troubled teens trying to turn their lives around. (Snip) “Camp Valor” is striking for what it is not. Race is not discussed in the book, gender is an afterthought. Several of the central characters in the book

By the end of July, two years after a rule was issued, a nationwide ban on smoking in public housing will be in effect. As of July 31, the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department will forbid the use of cigars, pipes and cigarettes in all public housing and common areas in addition to any outdoor area that comes within 25 feet of public housing property. While the ban does not include e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco and snuff, there could be restrictions on these products in some areas. Passed during the Obama administration back in November of 2016, HUD explains the policy

A British cave diver who helped rescue 12 young soccer players from a Thai cave last week said Monday he’s considering suing Elon Musk for branding him a “pedo” in a tweet. Vernon Unsworth, who provided expert mapping knowledge of the cave to an international team of divers, told AFP he will weigh his options when he gets back home in the UK and has a chance to examine the tweets. “If it’s what I think it is, yes,” he said when asked if he would take legal action against Musk, adding that it “ain’t finished.” The Tesla CEO, referring to Unsworth

Anthony Bourdain pulled no punches in one of his final interviews as the celebrity chef slammed Bill Clinton for being ´rapey, gropey and disgusting´ and spoke of how he imagined Harvey Weinstein dying alone in a bathtub. The globe-trotting food chronicler, who hanged himself in a French hotel in June, gave a lengthy and wide-ranging interview to journalist Maria Bustillos for her recently launched magazine Popula. (Snip) Bourdain went on to condemn the way Clinton and wife Hillary ´destroyed these women´ who came forward with the allegations. ´He is a very charming man, I met him, he´s f**king magnetic.

40% vacancy: Feds release illegal
immigrant families instead
of filling detention centers

The government pays for thousands of detention beds for illegal immigrant families, but nearly 40 percent of them were sitting unused in late June, even as the Department of Homeland Security was rushing to release parents and children into communities. (Snip) Lawyers who monitor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s facilities said two major facilities were running well below capacity. ICE’s biggest facility in Dilley, Texas, can hold 2,400 parents and children — but on June 27 and 28 it was at just 63 percent capacity, with 886 beds empty, the detainee logs showed. Although the beds were empty, the government

Former US president Barack Obama arrived in Kenya on Sunday, the country of his father´s birth, his first visit to this East African country since leaving office. Obama is in Kenya to help launch the sports and training center founded by his half-sister, Auma Obama, through her foundation Sauti Kuu. In Nairobi, Barack met President Uhuru Kenyatta at the official residence, according to Kenyatta´s Twitter account.

Lopes then took Chesna’s gun and blasted him several times in the head and chest before resuming his flight, authorities said. As other officers gave chase, Lopes allegedly squeezed off three more rounds, missing his pursuers but fatally striking an unidentified elderly woman

Whoopi Goldberg exploded on Judge Jeanine Pirro in a fiery on-air debate about president Donald Trump on Thursday´s episode of The View. Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for ´minorities, Hispanics and African Americans´ but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama. Pirro fired back saying: ´You´re suffering from Trump derangement in this room.´ When the View co-host and Trump opponent Meghan McCain said she wasn´t deranged, Pirro pointed at Goldberg, setting the

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy.

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of Presient Donald Trump´s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says. The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?" Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved. "Who the hell are these people?" an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," asked on Friday´s show.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."

Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton´s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets. At one point during Peter Strzok´s congressional testimony last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert made a stunning claim: FBI investigators were told that Clinton´s emails had been surreptitiously forwarded to a "foreign entity." And the FBI investigators who were allegedly conducting a thorough, unbiased, professional probe into Clinton´s

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Michael Avenatti says he’s the “street fighter” Democrats need if they’re going to win the White House in 2020. Avenatti, a lawyer who has become a household name — or at least has sought to become one — with his media appearances representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, says he’s “giving serious thought” to running for president. He says he’s skeptical that the politicians now seen as likely contenders in the 2020 presidential race can beat President Trump.

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers
