As you probably know by now, the Senate was unable to pass the repeal of the socialist health care that former President Obama rammed through while in office. Despite the years of complaining and promising by our representatives in Washington, and after 7 years of time to get their plan just right, when the time came, they screwed the pooch and didn’t get the job done.
This is awful on a financial and economic level because the un-Affordable Care Act is putting a terrible strain on our economy and undue stress on the healthcare system. It’s awful on a long term care level because not only will the best and brightest not work in public hospitals where they may or may not get paid, but the government is going to get to decide who gets the care since they’re footing the bill.And if all of that wasn’t enough, the hard working men and women who pay taxes, previously had insurance and get sick through the natural course of life are being made to pay huge out of pocket costs that they would never have had to pay with private insurance.
It’s gotten so bad that many have gotten desperate enough to take drastic measures. It’s sad to think that something that was billed as “healthcare” could plunge people into such disrepair that they lose all hope, but that was the case with one New York couple who just couldn’t take the bills they would have been leaving behind them, if they’d lived through their health problems at all. This couple decided, immediately after the health care repeal failed, that they couldn’t go on, and made the decision to end their own lives.
Via Daily Mail:
“A couple committed suicide by jumping out of a window of a New York City office building together in desperation over their inability to afford health care.
The incident happened early Friday morning in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan – just a block from the Empire State Building.
A 53-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman jumped out of a ninth-floor window of the 17-story commercial building on the corner of Madison Avenue and 33rd Street around 5:45am.
Their bodies were covered with white sheets once police arrived at the scene, shutting down the entire block to investigate.
The couple left behind suicide notes in a ziploc bag, that also included their IDs. Police have not released their names yet, but a photo obtained by the New York Post shows part of the letter, and it identifies the woman as Patricia. The note was titled ‘We had a wonderful life’.
A law enforcement source who spoke with the Post said the woman’s note said: ‘Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them’.
The man left one behind too, which read: ‘We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.’
The building that the couple jumped from includes offices for law and advertising firms, therapists offices and commercial space.
No further information on the couple has been released. It’s unclear how many children they left behind.
Perry Kim, 49, a worker at Pure Green, a juice shop on the same block, said that he was outside just after 5:30am this morning when he heard an ‘ahhh’ noise and saw two people fall from the top of the building.
The man appeared to hit his head and the woman had suffered abdominal injuries. They landed face up to the sky.
He said his manager called 911 and police and EMTs were there soon after but the bodies were immediately covered.
Javier Guzman, who works at the shoe repair shop across the street, told DailyMail.com that he had come into work around 6:45am and had seen the couple lying in the street.
He said: ‘I didn’t recognize them but they looked young, in their forties.’
He said he believed they had jumped from the 9th Floor window which remained open.
The couple committed suicide just a few hours after Senate Republicans tried to pass a bill that would repeal Obamacare.
But three members of their own party – including Sen. John McCain – voted against the bill and it failed to pass, keeping the Affordable Care Act in place for now.
Sen. McCain said that he voted against the bill because it was irresponsible to take health care away from millions of Americans without a new plan to replace it.

We hope that if any of our readers have any thoughts of harming themselves that they do take advantage of the help that’s available and just a phone call away. There are times when all of us have our backs against the wall, no one is exempt and you are not alone. Life and health have betrayed many of us at some time, but while there’s life, there’s hope. Sometimes it’s hard to see, and sometimes it looks like you might never get there, but ending your own life isn’t the answer.
And as for the overgrown fat cats in the Senate that decided their petty grievances were more important than giving hard working Americans the relief that they need, I pray they feel this blood on their hands from this day forward. I hope they understand that these aren’t just numbers on a page, they are mothers and fathers and sons and daughters whose only hope is in a system that they have no control over.
Shame on every single one of our Representatives for not doing what it takes to rid our country of this strain on our ability to get well. May you never forget the pain and suffering of this family, and every family burdened by what you’ve done.

BREAKING: Warning Issued To All Americans Overnight Of ‘Mass Casualty’ Event Planned – Here’s What We Know
America might be distracted with the problems at hand, but we never forget that we are a country at war. No matter what happens on a day to day basis, we always remember that we as a nation were violently attacked over sixteen years ago and it’s a score that we haven’t settled yet because terrorism hasn’t been wiped out.
The rise of the politically correct movement and it’s acceptance of “non-radical Muslims” has somehow allowed them to worm their way into many places that they shouldn’t be, such as government. That is especially troubling, considering that the threat from the Islamic faith and it’s admonitions to kill is, is far from past.
In fact, according to top administration officials, the smaller attacks that we’ve been seeing in recent months are just a ploy to keep their members appeased while they plan a 9/11 scale attack. Daily Mail reports that one a U.S. security chief is warning not just all of us, but other countries as well, to be vigilant:
“Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.
Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.
Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.”
While the United States hasn’t suffered an attack on the same scale as 9/11 since that day, we have watched the terrorists grow both in number and boldness across the globe. Our war on terror in the Middle East might have overthrown some open leaders, but for every open leader that threatens the United States and is eliminated, there are three more willing to take his place in the “holy war crusade.”
“Mrs. Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.
The security chief, who has served three US presidents, said: ‘The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.
‘However, in the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.’
She added: ‘Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world – but does not mean they’ve given up on a major aviation plot.’”
If you’ve gone through airport security lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration has cracked down on possible threats in a big way since way back in 2001 when we were first faced with this problem. The issue at hand is that no matter how much we increase security, human ingenuity increases with it.
According to Duke, who is President Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, there’s even a distinct possibility that any plan could be blown up using a laptop, and that’s just one of the many possibilities that she mentioned.
“She said the free movement of goods and people means security has to be tightened in individual countries around the world.
She said: ‘The laptop is one of the many aviation threats, we will never be comfortable and we will always be evolving.
‘What we believe is that because of the movement of goods and people, we have to raise the baseline worldwide, we can’t only consider our borders.’ Mrs. Duke went on: ‘We think the level of terrorist threat against the United States too is extremely high.
‘I think that it is challenging for you because you have the proximities to other countries, the ease of movement from some of the terrorist safe havens is a little easier for you, but we feel the terrorist threat is very high in the United States.’”
The troubling thing about Duke’s statements isn’t “why or how,” but when. She believes that another large-scale attack is going to be coming to us soon. We might not see it coming. This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists
This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists entering our countries. We can only be free if that freedom is respected; if we don’t protect the freedom, it will be taken either by those who want to kill us or those who want to control us. Either way, the freedom of living in America is a precious gift that is in jeopardy every single day.
Here’s more from our source on what is know about the possible impending attacks:
“Asked how the US is tackling the threat of another 9/11-style atrocity, she said: ‘We have worked on some strong measures that we can’t talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.
‘We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.’
Mrs. Duke warned that the number of home-grown violent extremists, mostly inspired by terrorist organisations, is increasing in the US. She said the ability of IS militants to put terrorist propaganda on the internet will appeal more and more to extremists as they are pushed out of Syria and Iraq.
Mrs. Duke said web giants need to do more to detect extremist content online, and one way of doing this could be using the same technology used to identify people in passenger lists.
‘Terrorists are strong, they are adaptable and the terrorist threat is the highest it has been since pre-9/11. We have got to have every tool that’s possible,’ she added.
A total of 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks, when al-Qaeda suicide attackers hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.
Earlier in the day, she met the British interior minister Amber Rudd to discuss how to force internet giants to do more to tackle terrorism ahead of the G7 summit.
Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change.
Her chilling remarks came 24 hours after MI5 director general Andrew Parker warned Britain is facing its worst-ever terrorist threat in his first major speech since the UK was hit by a wave of attacks.
The British spy chief said it was taking terrorists just days to hatch plots as violent extremists exploit ‘safe spaces online’ to evade detection.
It is harder for the UK to protect itself because of its proximity to other countries and the ease of movement from terrorist safe havens, she suggested.”

Hillary Missing After What Was Just Found On Body In Horrific Explosion, Even Dems Are Done With Her Now
It’s truly startling the massive trail of dead bodies that keep accumulating around Hillary Clinton as this crooked swamp wench will simply kill off anyone who gets a little too cozy with her secrets. Now an investigative journalist who had just exposed Hillary’s latest scandal has just been found murdered, after being blown to smithereens after a rigged car bomb detonated just moments after she drove away from her residence.
Several months ago, investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was behind the massive leak of 11.5 million documents called the Panama Papers that revealed how a Panama law firm helped some of the richest people from all around the world establish offshore tax havens on the Central American country. This illegal scheme allowed crooked politicians like Hillary Clinton to avoid paying taxes, as they’d simply stash massive amounts of cash in Panama. Now it appears as though Hillary is yet again behind another brutal murder, as she continues to prove she will do whatever it takes to keep her dirty laundry from being aired.
Immediately after news broke of Galizia’s horrific murder, alarm bells around the world immediately went off, with political pundits immediately labeling Galizia’s death a “political murder.”
“Shocking doesn’t begin to describe this,” journalist Mark Micallef wrote, where it’s believed that Galizia was blown up by a bomb that was being remotely controlled and detonated by an IED.
In the weeks leading up to her murder, Galizia had told authorities that she was being constantly harassed and threatened with her life. ABC News reported:
Caruana Galizia had been sued for libel because of various articles she wrote on her blog Running Commentary, and she had filed a report with the police two weeks ago that she was receiving threats.
Monday evening’s Parliament session was scrapped, except for briefings about the bombing scheduled to be given by Mr Muscat and opposition leader Mr Delia.
Disturbingly, Galizia’s death is already being tied directly to Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders was very vocal in calling Hillary out for her offshore account last year where the Democratic senator had publicly vowed to prosecute Hillary to the full extent of the law if he was elected as president. Politco reported:
Responding to the 11.5 million documents leaked this week showing how a Panama law firm helped some of the world’s wealthiest people establish offshore tax havens on the Central American country — the so-called Panama Papers — Bernie Sanders on Tuesday vowed to end the Panama Free Trade Agreement, tying Hillary Clinton to the same policies that he claimed fostered the practice.
“The Panama Free Trade Agreement put a stamp of approval on Panama, a world leader when it comes to allowing the wealthy and the powerful to avoid taxes,” the Vermont senator said in a statement released through his campaign, adding that he has been opposed to it “from day one.”
Vowing to use his authority as president to “terminate the Panama Free Trade Agreement within six months,” Sanders said his administration would “conduct an immediate investigation into U.S. banks, corporations and wealthy individuals who have been stashing their cash in Panama to avoid taxes.”
“If any of them have violated U.S. law, my administration will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law,” he said.
This startling incident comes on the heels of another murder that Hillary is suspected of being behind. At the end of August, State Department and federal agent employee Kurt Smolek’s decaying corpse was pulled from the Potomac River. Smolek was hot on the trail exposing Hillary’s ties to PizzaGate, as well as her ties to a human child trafficking ring in Cambodia.
Cambodia is a country that is infamous for their human trafficking, child sex trafficking, and child sex tourism. The location where Smolek was stationed was a hot spot of this type of illegal activity, and it’s possible that he had been privy to some damning information on Hillary Clinton.
“Yet another State employee is found mysteriously dead, his body pulled from the Potomac after being reported missing. This is related to PizzaGate as possible ties to the child trafficking and the criminals behind the numerous email and fraud related ‘mysterious deaths’. There are clear links to overseas child trafficking hotspots, recent mysterious deaths related to the DNC / Clinton / email scandals, links to Clinton’s state dept.”
How many more people who cross Hillary will wind up dead? It appears as though the massive trail of dead bodies will keep accumulating as long as Hillary Clinton is still alive.
Angry Army Ranger Showed Up At Kaepernick’s Front Door With BRUTAL Lesson On How ‘Real Men’ Should Behave
Third-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn’t been able to find land a job this season and now spends all his free time being a professional victim. He spent the entire summer race-baiting with his Muslim girlfriend, where they pushed the ridiculous narrative that his unemployment was because the NFL was a racist organization against blacks. Several days ago Kaepernick’s whining became even more outlandish, where he filed a formal complaint against President Trump and the 32 NFL teams, where he’s accusing them of “colluding” together to keep him from playing ball. Now America’s Benghazi hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto has finally had enough of this whiner, and decided to eviscerate Kaepernick publicly, with a post about this country’s “real men.”
On Tuesday, the NFL solidified their death with the proclamation that they’d now been holding weekly “activism” meetings so these “oppressed” millionaires can continue to have a platform to bash America and our country’s cops. Despite successfully hijacking the NFL, liberals still had to find something to complain about, where they immediately began to gripe that unsigned Kaepernick wasn’t invited to the meeting. Kaepernick was obnoxiously all over social media echoing these sentiments when his complaining caught the eye of Benghazi hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto.
Just hours later, Paronto tweeted directly at Kaepernick regarding his “activism” along with this photo with a caption that read: “Real Men Taking a Knee.”
— Kris Paronto (@KrisParonto) October 17, 2017
Take that, Kaepernick! These kneelers have absolutely no freaking appreciation for anything they enjoy here in America, including the generations of personal sacrifices our soldiers have made they can run off at the mouth and bash America over ridiculous claims of “injustice.” If there’s any “injustice” that needs to be investigated, it’s Obama and Hillary’s scandal where they left our men in Behgazi to rot so Obama’s reelection chances could be preserved, since at the time of Benghazi, Obama was busy pushing the false narrative that Al Qaeda was “on the run.”
What makes Kaepernick’s incessant whining even more pathetic is the fact that he takes no personal responsibility for his unemployment, as he continues to ignore the FACT that no one wants him because he’s simply a crappy football player.
Over the weekend, Kaepernick lawyered up and filed a grievance against the NFL and President Trump claiming that there’s a massive “conspiracy” between the 32 NFL teams and Trump to keep him off the field. Despite leading the 49-ers to a historic franchise loss last year, Kaepernick amazingly still believes there’s a rampant conspiracy between President Trump and 32 NFL teams to keep him off the field.
Former 49ers second string quarterback Colin Kaepernick lawyered up over the weekend, and has now filed a grievance claiming all 32 NFL teams conspired to keep him off the field.
Kaepernick, and his attorney — celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos — say that all 32 team owners conspired together to deny him a spot in professional football, even though Kaepernick walked away from a one-year option on his contract with the 49ers, and hasn’t been an asset to any football team since 2013.
NFL owners, the complaint says, “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.” Kaepernick contends that it’s a “statistical impossibility” that he has not, so far, obtained gainful employment as a professional football player.
If anyone deserves the spotlight, it’s the brave men and women of our armed forces who continue to put their lives on the line daily to keep our country safe. But because of our twisted society, ungrateful millionaires like Kaepernick will continue to make headlines every time he opens his mouth to whine, as liberals will continue to use him as a pawn to destroy everything that our country represents. If liberals can successfully demonize our country and make young people ashamed to stand for the flag, this is just one step closer to the full destruction of our country.
SHARE if you agree with this Army Ranger that REAL MEN STAND for the ANTHEM!
