If it wasn’t bad enough that President Obama has stated he chooses who he associates with carefully, such as radical black activists and marxist professors. If Tony Rezko, Rev Jeremiah Wright, Rev James Meeks, Dr Henry Louis Gates Jr, the 70s terrorist turned propagandizing professor, Bill Ayers, Other Mentors, you might not have heard about and the groups he left off his resume was not enough, how about his administration?
Presidential health care adviser Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and chairman of the Department of Bioethics at the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health, has argued that independent government boards should decide policy on end-of-life care. He also has defended rationing care more strictly for older people because “allocation [of medical care] by age is not invidious discrimination.”
Hmmm, let us add to Dr Emanuel this little tid bit…
In an April 28 New York Times interview, the president spoke of having government guide a “very difficult democratic conversation” about “those toward the end of their lives [who] are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill out here.
I report you decide…
Now, how about the president’s “chief science adviser,” John P. Holdren? He co-wrote a book “Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment,” a book he co-authored in 1977 with noted doomsayers Paul R. and Anne H. Erlich, Mr. Holdren wrote: “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
Mr. Holdren and the Erlichs considered other extremist measures. “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men,” they wrote. “The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control.”
Oh, it gets worse. The Holdren-Erlich book also promotes “Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods.” After noting that, well, yes, there were “very difficult political, legal and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems,” Mr. Holdren and his co-authors express hope that their idea may still be viable. “To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements,” they wrote. “It must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets or livestock.”
Yup, and this is just the tip of the iceberg, how much more will we learn about who he “carefully chose to associate with” during his life?
When Obama said he wanted to “radically change America”, he was not kidding.
