No development in U.S. healthcare over the last three decades has imperiled us more than the idea that we benefit from physician oversight of life events and circumstances that are not inherently medical. At its most intrusive, this process, called medicalization, creates a clinical conundrum out of the mere act of living and posits medical solutions for things (such as how to live a healthier lifestyle) that frequently benefit more from individual concentration and perseverance than professional intervention. We are thus bearing witness to tortuous reformation of what it means to be a physician in America: a formerly independent and autonomous profession is now our societal hall monitor.

Adam Goldstein, M.D., of North Carolina exemplifies the problem. His facile positioning of firearms as the new tobacco, coating the argument in a patina of medical benevolence, is testament to the profession’s creativity in dragging into its sphere things that do not belong there. There is, of course, no Constitutional right to smoke. But Dr. Goldstein doesn’t stop there. He wants national standards of licensure and professional behavior, especially regarding physicians and guns, akin to what is seen with commercial truckers. He also supports legal designation of all healthcare settings as “gun-free” zones, without a trace of irony about the fact that schools already occupy that space.

STOP ‘American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention’, Before They Start

American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention (ASLGVP) is a giant new gun control group looking to attack gun rights in our states.

ASLGVP is made up of nearly 200 state legislators.

Their founder, Brian Kavanagh (D-NY), said, “We’ve come together in recognition of the essential role state legislators must play, whether or not Congress chooses to act, in reducing gun violence.”

They are telling us they do not need Congress to pass anti-gun laws. Congress could not fulfill their anti-gun agenda through so they are attacking our rights at the state level.

Australia Is Now A ‘Nation Of Victims’ Thanks To Strict Gun Control

Over the past five years or so, the United States has been more active pertaining to the gun control versus gun rights argument. However, this year has seen a shift in favor for the latter. The Inquisitr reported on news that Americans favored the Second Amendment far more than security as proven by the latest Pew Poll.

Despite this, individuals with money and power often use their wealth and influence to propagandize their own personal agenda to the voters. Bill Gates used his status as a the world’s richest person and one million of his own dollars to challenge the National Rifle Association (NRA) and support a new law to implement even more gun control in Washington State, a challenge he would win. The former Mayor of New York City, also a billionaire, donated over a million dollars to help pass the new gun control law, even though he is not a resident of the state of Washington.

Nevertheless, there are now people who see the fallacies in gun control such as a Senator in Australia who stated that because of gun control, Australia is now a “nation of victims.”

NYC Mayor De Blasio’s NYPD Blahs

The current Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, is a closet communist to the most ardent of critics. Compelling evidence (even From the New York Times!) about his past lends significant credence to this allegation. To conservatives like Washington Post’s George Will, he is a blessing in disguise, exposing New Yorkers to unfettered progressive principles, and their consequences. Nothing inoculates voters better to the dangers of abject liberalism than a heavy dose of it, Will quipped.

Enter Mayor Blah-Blah, the most ardent of advocates for left-wing policies.

De Blasio slaps NYPD in the face on last day of 2014

New York Mayor de Blasio’s actions speak louder than words when it comes to respecting the NYPD, and he used the last day of 2014 to emphasize how little he values the lives of the officers that serve the city. The New York Post reports:

Mayor de Blasio delivered another blow to New York’s Finest on Wednesday when he reappointed a Brooklyn judge who freed without bail two men who threatened cops just days after the Bed-Stuy double police assassination.

The stunning decision came even as one of the suspects — a gang member charged with posting police death threats online — skipped out on a court date and had a warrant out for his arrest, sources said.

Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson had faced a midnight expiration of her term. She was appointed by Mayor Mike Bloomberg in January 2013.

Her one-year, interim reappointment by de Blasio outraged law-enforcement officials a day after he met with the heads of five police unions to heal his fractured relationship with cops.

One of the suspects posted a photo on his Facebook page showing a gunman firing into an NYPD police cruiser just hours after the assassination of Officers Liu and Ramos, and added, “73 nextt” – a reference to the 73rd Precinct, serving the neighborhood where he lived.

Bill DeBlasio’s father, Warren Wilhelm, supported the appeasement of Adolph Hitler in an October 26, 1938 debate, Gotnews.com has learned.

DeBlasio’s father, then a Labor member of the Yale Political Union, gave a stirring speech in favor of appeasing Hitler.

Appeasing Hitler was the “least terrible” of five alternatives, Wilhelm concluded as reported in an article in The Yale Daily News.

Bill de Blasio’s lobbyists called top political allies and asked them to publicly slam the NYPD unions and cops for turning their backs on the New York mayor at a funeral for a slain officer, it has been revealed.

DNA Info quotes two lawmakers who go calls from the de Blasio’s aides asking them to speak out against the NYPD for its protest.

‘City Hall wanted me to blast the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association for turning their backs on him,’ one politician told the news site.

‘They called up Monday, said they were calling all of us, and that it was our obligation to stand up defending the mayor.’

Every time the Rev. Al Sharpton talks about Staten Island, all he does is show how little he understands the borough.

The latest example? Rev. Al’s take on District Attorney Daniel Donovan looking like the GOP front-runner in the race to replace Rep. Michael Grimm in Congress.

Donovan and Assemblyman Michael Cusick (D-Mid-Island) have been tabbed as the early front-runners in the battle for the seat.

Confessions Of A Reluctant Culture Warrior

I’ve recently been working on a review of the top stories of 2014, which gives me a chance to look back at everything I’ve written and get a sense of what was really important this year, and also of how good a job I did of responding to those big stories.

What surprised me this year was seeing what took one of the top spots—right in there between the ugly return of racial politics and the rise of the Islamic State (amidst the collapse of President Obama’s foreign policy). It was: the “culture wars,” the running battles over issues like abortion, religious freedom, and radical feminism.

For most of my career as a writer, I have been reluctant to join in the “culture wars,” mostly because I don’t fit into either of the two opposing camps. As an atheist, I’m not longing for a return to traditional religious morality, but as an individualist, I’ve never supported the weird victim-group crusades of the left.

I have mostly dedicated myself to making the case for smaller government, pointing out the failure of the welfare state, and keeping the environmentalists from shutting down industrial civilization—little things like that. Oh, and also war—not the “culture war,” but war war, the kind where people are actually trying to kill us.

So for the most part, my position on an issue like gay marriage could be summed up as: “Can we please talk about something else now?”

Partly, this comes from my small-government outlook, which holds that some things—indeed, most things, and virtually all of the really important things—should be outside the realm of politics. That definitely includes other people’s sex lives, about which I would like to know a good deal less than is fashionable at the moment.

But this year, I discovered that while I might not be interested in the culture war, the culture war is interested in me. It’s interested in all of us.

This is the year when we were served noticed that we won’t be allowed to stand on the sidelines, because we will not be allowed to think differently from the left.

How did we find this out? First, they came for the Christians, in legal cases meant to force conservative believers to provide funding for abortifacient contraceptives and to participate in gay marriage ceremonies.

New “Fast and Furious” Docs Confirm Exactly What Eric Holder Wanted to Hide

It’s always been suspected by most right-thinking individuals that Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” operation wasn’t just a botched job by several rogue agents, but a conspiracy that went to the top of the Department of Justice. Those suspicions had always been (mostly) unproven, though.

That is, until now. New documents just released confirm that the conspiracy led to the highest reaches of Holder’s Justice Department and that the operation was used as part of an assault on the Second Amendment by extremist liberals.

The smoking gun in these documents is a bit that proves the complicity of the Department of Justice in using “Fast and Furious” to erode Second Amendment rights. (H/T Poor Richard’s Blog.)

Newtown Suit Proceeds under False Pretences

Some of the families who survived the horror of the Newtown shooting are suing Bushmaster, the manufacturer of the AR-15 rifle that was used by the deranged gunman who murdered 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The complaint actually reads more like an attempt at healing than a serious legal claim. To that extent, I am sympathetic. But the strictly legal issues and theory of recovery to be gleaned from it deserve comment.

This is in the class of claims that are barred by a 2005 law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). Congress passed the PLCAA in response to several years’ worth of creative municipal lawsuits against the gun industry. Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell explained in a speech to the American Bar Association that the litigation was designed to avoid consolidation and stretch the ability of gun makers to pay for legal defense in dozens of jurisdictions at once.

Many of those claims dripped with irony. One popular legal theory was that gun manufacturers—defying the profit motive—were negligently oversupplying firearms to distressed communities. The irony was that the only real evidence of product-dumping was that some of the plaintiffs had upgraded the police arsenals of their cities by selling large lots of used police guns at below-market prices. (See the Wall Street Journal report on this by Vanessa O’Connell and Paul Barrett, November 10, 1999.)

The PLCCA allows manufacturers to be sued for selling defective firearms and for violating laws directly regulating firearms. But sellers of properly functioning firearms who comply with the National Firearms Act, the Gun Control Act of 1968 (with its many amendments) and myriad other federal and state laws governing the manufacture and sale of firearms, cannot be sued for criminal use of their products.

Arrests plummet 66% with NYPD in virtual work stoppage

It’s not a slowdown — it’s a virtual work stoppage.

NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.

The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.

The unprecedented meeting is being held at the new Police Academy in Queens at 2 p.m., sources said.

Angry union leaders have ordered drastic measures for their members since the Dec. 20 assassination of two NYPD cops in a patrol car, including that two units respond to every call.

Judge Orders Release of NBC’s David Gregory affidavit After Illegal Gun Display

A federal judge has ordered the District of Columbia to release the affidavit stemming from the Metropolitan Police Department’s investigation of David Gregory after the “Meet the Press” host displayed a high-capacity ammunition magazine on the air while taping the program in NBC’s Washington, D.C., studio in 2012.

William Jacobson, a conservative blogger, filed a Freedom of Information Act suit last year seeking the records after Gregory was not prosecuted despite warnings from D.C. police to producers that the display would be a clear violation of D.C.’s gun laws.

Libs Horrified: Gun Rights Outweigh Gun Control In New Pew Survey

For the first time in at least 20 years, significantly more Americans say it’s more important to protect the right to own guns than to control gun ownership, according to the Pew Research Center.

The survey found that more than half of Americans (52 percent) sided with gun rights compared with the 46 percent who favored gun control.

The findings represent the continuation of a shift that was only briefly interrupted by the Newtown, Conn., school shootings in 2012.
