Greenwich’s double scandal

The town of Greenwich is dealing with two scandals, both involving members of the Representative Town Meeting or RTM.

The Greenwich Time reports RTM member Chris Von Keyserling  was arrested last Wednesday on a warrant related to an incident on December 9th at the town-owned Nathaniel Witherell, nursing home on Parsonage Road. Officials said Von Keyserling was arrested at Town Hall.

According to an arrest warrant , the incident began when von Keyserling had a brief political discussion with a 57-year-old female worker. Accoridng to court papers, the talks turned heated, and the woman went to her office.

“The encounter continued in the office, and when the woman rose to leave, she was pinched on her rear end by von Keyserling”, the paper said.

The woman later told investigators she detected “an evil look” in Von Keyserling’s eyes after a brief verbal exchange as she was leaving the office.

Von Keyserling’s lawyer, Phil Russell, called the charge “unrealistic.”

“In almost 30 years of practicing law in this town, I would say Mr. von Keyserling is the one person I would never suspect of having any inappropriate sexual predilections,” Russell told the paper.

Von Keyserling, in his 70’s, was released on $2,500 bond and given a court date of January 25th.

In the other, even bigger scandal, another Republican RTM member resigned January 9th after being accused of child pornography possession.

Forty-six-year old Christopher Sandys, was arrested four days prior and charged with one count of possession of child porn. The arrest occured in the middle of his first term on the RTM after being appointed last March to fill a vacancy in District 1. Sandys was arrested as part of an undercover investigation by Connecticut State Police into so-called “peer to peer” child pornography image and video trading.

“Chris has led an exemplary life, highlighted by his graduation from the Air Force Academy and honorable discharge from the Air Force after a four-year enlistment. These types of cases are always very difficult but it’s simply too soon for me to have any comment on the charges,” Sandys lawyer Lindy Urso said.

Greenwich Police said they found a desktop computer belonging to Sandys with over 700 images of child pornography at his home on LeGrande Avenue.

Police said Sandys is due in court on January 20th.

Congress should STOP right now

When it comes to Obamacare, Congress is doing their part in repealing the (UN)Affordable Heathcare Act.  But despite what many people have been hearing about in the media as well as projectionary complaints by the left, one columnist says Obamacare SHOULD NOT BE REPLACED.

This article found online through a Devvy Kidd suggestion begins with this image

Writing at News With Views, Kelleigh Nelson said

Please President Trump, repeal Obamacare, but do not add another boondoggle to our already ridiculously huge government. NO REPLACEMENT OF OBAMACARE IS NECESSARY!

What is wrong with allowing the free market to handle healthcare?

One problem, many in Congress DO NOT believe in the free market.

Nelson goes on to say..

Past major laws and other policies implemented by the Federal and state governments have interfered with the health care marketplace to the point where our people are not only suffering, but dying. Is that the intent? Nearly every law regarding healthcare that has been passed since the early 1900s should be repealed, not just Obamacare!

What Nelson is saying is the big brother hand of big government should be out of all of our lives.

Is any part of Obamacare good?  Well…yes and no.

President Trump has rightly stated that competition across state lines would create more competitive insurance markets, and that pre-existing conditions should not disqualify care under new health plans.

But why are we allowing young people to be carried on their parents’ insurance until age 26? The percentage of youth who actually become ill between college graduation and age 26 is so miniscule as to be almost unchartable.

And as for illegal aliens (yes this writer is using the term):

Between 1983 and 1992, health care costs rose almost 10% annually. Prescription drug costs rose 12.1 percent a year. Home health care prices increased 18.3 percent annually. (Perhaps there were only 10 to 15 million illegal aliens in our country 30 odd years ago, but I believe we’re at 50 to 60 million today).

Congress expanded Medicaid to include illegal immigrants, children (through CHIP, Children’s Medicaid), and pregnant women.

Because of the U.S. Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C.), most hospitals may not refuse anyone treatment for an emergency medical condition because of citizenship (illegal aliens), legal status, or ability to pay. An example of the cost conflict between federal government, state and local government, and private institutions, is that the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) brings injured and ill illegal aliens to hospital emergency rooms, but does not pay for their medical care. Almost $190 million, or about 25 percent, of the uncompensated costs Southwest border county hospitals incurred, resulted from emergency medical treatment provided to illegal immigrants.

Emergency rooms on our southern borders have gone bankrupt and closed. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the cost to American taxpayers for medical treatment of illegals, and now the so-called Syrian refugees and Somalis, has exacerbated and exponentially increased our own healthcare costs.

Anchor baby births alone have cost Americans billions of dollars each year. Breitbart documents that one is born every 93 seconds. Medicaid alonepaid $2.2 billion last year to partially reimburse hospitals for unpaid illegal alien delivery bills, double estimates from news reports.

The amount not reimbursed to hospitals is in the tens of billions. A staggering 84 hospitals in California alone, have been forced to close their doors because of unpaid bills by illegal aliens. Los Angeles emergency rooms are full of illegal aliens. Hospitals which manage to remain open, pass the unpaid costs onto the rest of us, which translates into more out-of-pocket expenses and higher insurance premiums for Americans.

One Dallas hospital has a MAJOR anchor baby problem.  And it’s one we all should be familar with.

“Parkland Memorial Hospital (yes, the same hospital where JFK died after his assassination in 1963), a staggering 70% of all babies born are to illegal aliens. Nationally, 400,000 anchor babies a year — 1 in 10 of all births — are illegal alien offspring,” Nelson writes.

The first link in the quote is to the leftist website Snopes, so caution is advised.  The second is to the more reliable Breitbart.

And Nelson writes, Congress is to blame for all this mess, which began over 100 years ago.   The mess, Nelson writes goes back to the days of Taft, up through Teddy Roosevelt, Coolidge, and FDR.  And it all involves…BIG PHARMA.

In 1925, prescription drug monopolies began after the federal government, led by Republican President Calvin Coolidge, started allowing the patenting of drugs. And guess what…these drug monopolies have been promoted by government research and development subsidies targeted to favored pharmaceutical companies.

So much for Calvin Coolidge being cool.  And FDR offered up what might be called “Rosseveltcare.”

During the early 1940s, FDR asked for a Bill of Rights which included medical care. Truman later offered a national health program plan, proposing a single system that would include all of American society, but it was denounced by the AMA and was called a Communist plot by a House subcommittee.

In other words, single payer, like in Canada and Britain today.  And Big Med was given a major pass under the progressive icon FDR

In 1945, buyer monopolization began after the McCarran-Ferguson Act led by the Roosevelt Administration exempted the business of medical insurance from most federal regulation, including antitrust laws.

This collusion would go on throughout the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and into the Reagan years.

In the 1980s, under Reagan, there was a shift towards privatization and corporatization of healthcare. Medicare shifts to payment by diagnosis (DRG) instead of by treatment. Private plans quickly follow suit, with growing complaints by insurance companies that the traditional fee-for-service method of payment to doctors is being exploited. I can remember when I would go to a physician with a problem, and he could diagnose my symptoms without weeks of various expensive tests.

In 1984, prescription drug monopolies were strengthened during the Reagan Administration after the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act permitted the extension of patents beyond 20 years. (*The government also allowed pharmaceuticals companies to bribe physicians to prescribe more expensive drugs.*)

Both Bushes and Clinton would follow even without the passing of “Hillarycare.”  Obamacare was another story.  In fact, when it comes to doctors and politics, it’s a very dangerous drug mixture.  In a story from Breitbart…

Physicians have openly stated that Obamacare was never about health care, but about achieving another Progressive goal of massive wealth redistribution.

As for the leftist socialists, their goal has been single payer where the GOVERNMENT ALONE collects all fees and has total control.  In fact…

(S)ometime down the road under ObamaCare the government will (control the food) tell you what you can and can not eat. They are using the Marxist Hegelian Dialectic to accomplish exactly that.

Well now Obamacare is being repealed, despite the Chicken (****) Little worries of the puppets of billionaire George Soros, the Democrats, whom like the Republicans in Congress CAN AFFORD THEIR OWN HEALTHCARE.

Nelson finished things up with this…

Booker on the hook

As leftist New Jersey Senator Cory Booker was out projecting in his objection to Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Seesions, Politico reports he is involved in a big scandal in his often corrupt state.

Booker is embroiled in a Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation (NWCDC) scandal involving allegations of massive kickbacks.  The website reported last week Donald Bernard Sr., a senior projects manager at the company that ran Newark’s water infrastructure under the direction of Booker, the then-mayor of New jersey’s biggest city, Newark, pled guilty in federal court to accepting nearly $1 million in bribes from contractors.

Last month, Bernard Sr.’s former boss at the Newark company, Linda Watkins Brashear, also pleaded guilty to similar charges. A former contractor Giacomo “Jack” DeRosa pleaded guilty to money laundering charges over kickbacks paid to Bernard.

Politico reported among the most dogged of Newark’s water watchers was Dan O’Flaherty, a Columbia University economics professor and a former City Hall staffer. He and a group of residents calling themselves The Newark Water Group wrote a detailed accounting of the agency’s mismanagement in 2011 for NJ.com entitled “Hog Wild.”  The level of corruption he saw was very egregious.

“This is bigger than I thought. The amounts of money are unusual for Newark. Most of the officials who have been convicted of something in the last 45 years — post-[disgraced former mayor Hugh] Addonizio — were involved in schemes of four or five digits. This is easily in six digits,” O’Flaherty told Politico.

Which means at least $100,000…perhaps more…was used in kickbacks.

When Booker took office nine years ago, the NWCDC, through its city contract, was running Newark’s entire water delivery system. Its engineers and planners worked directly out of City Hall.

Trustees appointed by a judge in 2013 to “wind down” the Corporation and return water operations to the city are now suing Booker in bankruptcy court. They claim Booker’s failure to monitor the agency caused the severe corruption which robbed the fiscally struggling city of its few resources and placed its old water infrastructure at massive risk.

Politico reports Booker was forced to admit he never once attended a NWCDC board meeting his entire time in office even though he was the agency’s ex-officio trustee. Recently, Booker’s attorneys argued he is immune from financial liability because his role on the Newark water board was a “de facto responsibility of the office of mayor.”

Allegations of misconduct at the NWCDC have been raised by local residents, media, and lawmakers for many years. The NWCDC is supposedly a non-profit agency created to protect Newark’s watershed.

After “Hog Wild” was published in 2011, The Newark Star-Ledger, via NJ.com published its own findings of what they called”spending and mismanagement at the agency.” But it wasn’t until 2013, when the state comptroller began investigating, that the Booker administration moved to shut down the agency.

Newark City Councilman Augusto Amador also led investigations into corruption and kickbacks at the agency. He was one of the most vocal and earliest critics of the extreme spending going on.

“I’m surprised about the amount of money that was stolen…When I first looked into it and looked at the books that were submitted to the Council, the amount that was involved was nowhere near what we’re seeing now, but I’m not surprised by the indictments,” Amador said

Now, with indictments already filed and two guilty pleas entered, both Amador and O’Flaherty expect even more charges against other ex-workers and consultants of the agency and the contractors who paid the bribes.

“I have no reason to think that the U.S. attorney is done,” O’Flaherty said.

The Sessions Circus

Jeff Sessions (R-Al) has been going before the senate judiciary committee, seeking confirmation as Attorney General. But leave it to a bunch of clowns in the racist left-wing NWO media to write “articles” about Sessions, painting him as “racist.”  Infowars’ Supergirl Maggie Howell takes the leftist wing of the NWO to task.
