Defund Walter Reed? Are Liberals Nuts?

reedThose desperate for power, as well as those unable to separate reason from emotion, often make fools of themselves – thinking they are at once smarter, possess “unique” experiences (unlike the rest of us), are ideologically pure, and just better at living life.  We call those people liberals.

A liberal who calls herself a conservative is, well, a less smart liberal.  The notion is that she gets credit for conservative compass, allowing her to bash the compass; people who bash their compass often end up on the rocks, or at least miserably lost.  They are not good to follow.

Enter Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who bills herself “conservative.”  The paper – which routinely omits conservative thought, as too religious, historical, traditional, patriotic, militaristic, capitalistic, individualistic, liberty-centric, anti-government, and (worst of all) liable to convince people – just ran a Rubin rant that would make George McGovern blush.

Obviously ignorant of Edmund Burke, Russell Kirk, and Ronald Reagan, she claims doctors allowing President Trump to return home should lose their licenses, and Walter Reed Medical Center be shut down – for allowing the President to return home.

Lunatic tendencies seem on the march.  First, she calls President Trump “a menace to everyone around” him for going home – without symptoms.  Now, pause for a material fact.  This will shock liberals, but facts can be interesting.  The CDC reports the nation’s “overall cumulative COVID-19 hospitalization rate was 178.2 per 100,000” last week, and “481.5 per 100,000” for those over 65.  Using logic, a conservative vice, this means 99,518.5 Americans in every 100,000 COVID-positive are back home, not hospitalized.

By reference to another conservative trick, called math, this means President Trump is among the 99.5 percent of COVID-positive Americans quarantining at home, not at a hospital.  Applying Rubin’s analysis – these Americans must all be “menaces” or Trump is not one.

Next, she attacks “any” doctor who would allow a COVID-positive patient to go home.  As thousands have done this, she libels them all: “Any MD who publicly endorses this insanity needs to lose his/her license.  Period.”  Says the Washington Post, a pox on their houses, where patients continue getting well.  If Biden wins, watch out.

The most startling departure from reason is her recommendation, that “Congress might want to defund Walter Reed,” as “it is a public health hazard.”  Gosh, that idea escaped most Americans.  Then again, liberals are smarter.

Now the astute reader will notice several things.  Walter Reed was not built for Trump.  It serves those who selflessly defend our country and are wounded in the process.  This “defunding” thing may have jumped the leash. Unable to topple or burn Walter Reed, Democrats will defund it.

Note the arrogance.  The hospital treats more than one million military beneficiaries annually.  It is “the world’s largest joint military medical center,” hundreds of beds for thousands of vets, and 7,100 professional staff.  As one veteran noted in disbelief – but then he was not a smart liberal – this is beyond crazy. “Great idea – let’s punish soldiers, physicians, nurses, and staff for the president’s decision to return home ….”

The paper was not done.  They called “the rest of Walter Reed,” presumably those 7,099 staff not the doctor himself, “remarkable cowards.”  They have no idea the people they demean.  I am former Navy and know this hospital well.  There are no cowards within those walls.  “Period.”

Finally, as if this liberal had not done enough spitting, she said if you “are a staunch defender of the rule of law,” oppose “systematic racism,” favor “legal immigration,” you do not “fit in” with today’s Republicans. I beg to differ. Who has been working to end riots in Democrat cities, offered police reform in the Senate (drafted by Black Republican Senator Tim Scott) that got dismissed by Democrats, and strives to distinguish legal from illegal immigration?

As the election nears, liberals are losing it.  Maybe they see the election sliding away.  In any event, those desperate for power, or unable to separate reason from emotion, make fools of themselves.  That appears to be happening more often these days.

Well any political party that would publicly advocate for defunding the police would certainly have no problem with defunding a hospital that treated President Trump for Covid-19. The Democrat party is the party of hate, envy, and intolerance of anyone or anything that stands in their way or supports those, in this case the healthcare of the President of the United States, they oppose. So I don’t find it surprising there would be calls from the Democrats to defund Walter Reed hospital as “punishment” for defying the Democrats. It’s simply who they are as a party.

Any party that endorses “Obamacare,” “You have to pass it to see what’s in it,” or “you can keep your present doctor under this plan,” definitely would not understand how Walter Reed Hospital functions or its purpose. The Democrats are so focused on destroying, or removing President Trump they can’t see reason or listen to it. Beyond their tunnel vision of hate and elitism.

What I don’t understand is how all these Left wing idiots survived their mothers abortion? The Left is totally insane, and the worst part of that statement, is, There is no known cure except termination. And we conservatives know that will never happen, because we will stand up for their right to prove daily just how ignorant and dangerous they are.

Its a sad day when a question like this is in reality rhetorical. When the democrats invited in the crazys in the form of Nancy Peolsi and her ilk, which were rightly keep at bay by the sane I knew by embracing them and givine them power the end of the democrat party was coming. I hope thatthe democrats can cure themselves someday because one day these fools will be able to hurt more than their party.

What’s known today about our so-called Liberal Democrats is that their entire leadership are composed of extreme left Socialist/Communist idiots period! … So, wanting to “defund” Walter Reed Hospital shouldn’t surprise anyone with half a brain. Number 1, I wouldn’t put it past them to try to assassinate this true Patriot President knowing full well that HE IS GOING TO BE RE-ELECTED!!! They know that 4 more years of a Trump Presidency will destroy the Socialist/Communist takeover of this great Republic. So President Trump’s life is now 100% in jeopardy. We the People MUST BE PREPARED to come to his and our country’s aid IF NEED BE! I fear for his life and Our country’s future! Don’t hesitate to put these Progressively Communist Democrats in their place if confronted by them. Most of these people are just stupid and don’t realize what’s really happening and aren’t open to hearing the truth! So be prepared to fight if necessary or America will cease to exist.

Liberal / Progressive / Socialist one in the same. This is the Ideology of the Socialist Democrats. The SDP Despises Freedom, in fact so much so, they will stop at Nothing to Destroy President Trump. Defunding POLICE and Walter Reed, are merely another ploy in their quest for Power.

Think about this; The SDP has utilized the following in their effort to stop the President from achieving a Stronger AMERICA. Be it Resist, BLM, ANTIFA, ANARCHIST, SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY, they all have one thing in common, they are Marxist, Communist. Folks, this is that simple. Marxist, or students of Saul Alinsky are pretty much the same. All stand for the Destruction of the United States Constitution. They are against Freedom, they purport to stand as advocates for the First Amendment, when in fact they are anything but supporters. SDP Members are opposed to Conservative Speech the right to Keep and Bear Arms, the 2nd Amendment and the 5th Amendment.

Socialist are opposed to Private Property Ownership, they feel it is the Right of the State to own Property and Never in the Hands of the Common MAN / WOMAN, ever.

All one has to do is look to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Baltimore, all Socialist Democratic Party Politician Led Cities.
In every instance the leaders of these cities, are advocates of Riots, Illegal Protest, Burning, Looting and Civil Disorder in an effort to remove all forms of Law and Order. Walter Reed is merely one more disgusting call by the Leftist in America. The Washington Post, is funded by Jeff Bezos and is actually a Target of the Left. If the Socialist ever gain Power, he and others like him, Millionaires, Billionaires and Trillionaires will be stripped of all wealth and as the Communist take over the movement, will Try and Kill all of them. The Communist, as they did in Russia, end the lives of the Academics, because they’re too easily manipulated. That will be the New America if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win the Election.

A Vote for Harris Biden, will be a Vote to Close Walter Reed Hospital . … .

I understand that we allegedly have a mental health crisis in the U.S. Perhaps as a humane gesture,the folks at Walter Reed would make an allowance for Jennifer Rubin to seek treatment on a pro bono basis. MAGA/KAG/KAF TRUMP/PENCE 2020

What is really scary there are people in our country that believe this”trash talking”.The liberals,and that includes democrats and rinos,would turn AMERICA into a third world country just to spite conservatives and President Trump.The liberal philosophy is make everyone equal even if they have to take the middle class down because they can’t bring the lower class up to make things equal.Someone needs to tell the liberals that”it ain’t gonna work”.

I think we need to defund all these career politions. They need to learn what it is like to have no income. Also we need to see their tax records and see from where their extra money is coming. We don’t pay them enough to become millionaires while they are in office. And we need term limits…just like the president. We need people who represent us citizens, not themselves.

Forrest Gump’s mom was right. “Stupid is as stupid does.” Rubin fits that definition perfectly. Shut down a major and famous hospital because you don’t like the medical diagnosis of a doctor, and the one complaining has no medical acumen at all. Almost funny if it weren’t so radically foolish and tragic. Rubin needs immediate mental treatment for TDS.

It was not that long ago that Walter Reed had a terrible reputation for being a filthy rundown poor quality hospital. It certainly was not the Demonrat Party that changed Walter Reed for the better! Everything Conservatives build The Left tries to tear down to suit their agenda!

I completely enjoyed this article; and I truly wish there was a way to get these types of facts out there for the entire nation to see. The media is so biased; what ever happened to true journalism, where the facts HAVE to be reported. Or, is this simply yellow journalism? I find it so hard to believe the criteria for journalism has stooped so low to allow such biased reporting. I have to admit, I waiver between being confident we will win and enjoy President Trump for another 4 years to being scared to death, the Dems are going to succeed in their cheating and devilish scemes. I’ve been able to join two prayer sessions for our POTUS, FLOTUS and country and they were wonderful!! One was led by Ashley Hayek, Coalition for Donald Trump and the other was on the Our Lady of Rosary Feast Day, led by Sister Deidre Byrne and Dr. Marshall – to see people from all over our country AND the world state they are praying for our country and President Trump, so so uplifting. I truly hope and pray, these prayers are heard and we WINRED!!!

I wish we could send the Bidens, Obamas, Clintons, Schumer, Pelosi, AOC, Harris, George Soros, Bloomberg, DeBlasio and any other Democrat I may have forgotten to a country that is really chaotic, then see how much they complain about their living conditions.

We should round up all of the people like Jennifer Rubin to take a mental test to see if they are medically capable of walking among us or if they are just plain stupid. Nancy, Chuckie and others should also get in line. Their comments should lead them to the nearest insane asylum for permanent residency. By the way, what qualification does this columnist have to judge medical professionals in terms of their ability and skills? This kind of blather is beyond the pale. The TDS has infected them so badly that I fear for the safety of common everyday Americans.

Not surprising that the party that removed God from its platform and whose members were shouting “hail satan” in a pro-abortion rally in Austin are against a hospital, after all they oppose anything that is good in humanity and helps humans: i.e. hospitals, healthcare directed by the individuals and their chosen doctors themselves, faith based charities, the police, controlling the underbrush in wilderness regions to prevent mega fires, America’s energy independence, life – as in abortion, life – as in euthanasia, the family – as in parental rights and favoring fatherless households, pro-creation – as in advertising homosexuality and gender mutilation, marriage – as they claim it is no longer a bond of two members of opposing sexes with the divine but an economic contract between mere business partners, the sanctity of childhood and the innocence of children – as they propose laws deregulating pedophilia and promote child porn on TV, a strong America with strong national security, privacy – as in government having records of everything, property – as in “you did not earn that, the government earned that for you”.
The Democrats are not only completely deranged by now with TDS, they are bordering on insane, and utterly anti-American with verifiable indications of inhumane, as they debase the human spirit and introduce the barbaric as on display in the day of birth abortion practices they favor.
We might need laws to insure parties participating in the civic life of our nation meet at least a minimum level of acceptable values, decorum, civility, and lack of malevolence, and a means to remove them if they don’t; after all our founding fathers did just fine without formal parties.
