Action T4 (German: Aktion T4) was the name used after World War II for Nazi Germany’s “Euthanasia programme” during which physicians killed thousands of people who were “judged incurably sick, by critical medical examination”. The programme officially ran from September 1939 until August 1941, but it continued unofficially until the end of the Nazi regime in 1945. […]
The name T4 was an abbreviation of “Tiergartenstraße 4”, the address of a villa in the Berlin borough of Tiergarten which was the headquarters of the Gemeinnützige Stiftung für Heil- und Anstaltspflege, bearing the euphemistic name literally translating into English as Charitable Foundation for Curative and Institutional Care. […]
Barack Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, suggested in his paper “Lives, Life-Years, and Willingness to Pay” that the government should deny older people medical care.
Euthanasia Activists Say Obamacare Will Lead to More Assisted Suicides
by Wesley Smith | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 10/3/13 4:44 PM
I rarely agree with assisted suicide proponents. But an article in Salon may be onto something–that the passage of the Affordable Care Act could boost assisted suicide legalization. From the article:
Currently only three states have Death With Dignity laws – a surprisingly low number given that there isn’t a one among the other 47 in which somebody isn’t dying right now. Could the Affordable Care Act change that? Peg Sandeen, executive director of the National Death With Dignity Center, speculates: “I think the ACA is going to change how we access healthcare and that change is going to come slowly. What I hope it means is that people have access to a wide span of options across the health spectrum.”
In other words, that is the plan!
Assisted suicide is not only about so-called “death with dignity”–a gooey euphemism swallowed whole by the reporter–but despite the article’s spin to the contrary, ultimately about saving money.
Do you remember Barbara Wagner and Randy Stroup? Both were on Medicaid and terminally ill with cancer. Their doctors prescribed life-extending chemotherapy. But Oregon’s death panel rationers refused to pay for their prescriptions. Both received letters telling them not to worry, while the state wouldn’t pay to extend their lives, it would readily fund their assisted suicides.
Hemlock Society founder Derek Humphry told us this was coming, writing in Freedom to Die:
A rational argument can be made for allowing PAS [physician-assisted suicide] in order to offset the amount society and family spend on the ill…There is no contradicting the fact that since the largest medical expenses are incurred in the final days and weeks of life, the hastened demise of of people with only a short time left would free resources for others.
Vermont–which has an unfunded single payer healthcare plan and legal assisted suicide–may also be looking to doctor-prescribed death–coupled with health care rationing–to pay for it.
The assisted suicide advocacy organization, the euphemistically named Compassion and Choices (formerly the Hemlock Society) was deeply involved–by the group’s own account–in drafting portions of the Obamacare legislation.
So, could Obamacare lead to greater [numbers of] assisted suicide? You betcha.

Diane Reidy is an official stenographer for the U.S. House of Representatives. On the evening of October 16, 2013 Reidy was forcibly removed from the house when she interrupted the proceedings by speaking into a microphone to all those assembled. The late night session of the house of representatives was in the process of counting votes for legislation to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling, averting a possible unprecedented default on the U.S. debt. Reidy’s outburst occurred at the culmination of a major fiscal and governmental crisis, coinciding with historically low public approval of congress.
The media reaction to Reidy’s statement described it as a “rant”, a “meltdown” and “crazy”. In contrast, the fiscal crisis created by the politicians cost the United States an estimated 24 billion dollars, shut down major parts of the civil service for 16 days, and damaged the country’s reputation internationally.
Transcript of Reidy’s statement
He will not be mocked He will not be mocked The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God It never was Had it been, it would not have been No, it would not have been The constitution would not have been written by freemasons They go against God You cannot serve two masters You cannot serve two masters Praise be to God, lord Jesus Christ ... (no longer audible)
This transcript is from her rant by the elevator not from the podium. The rant from the podium is unknown

With your help hundreds of NY Times reporters and 100,000 pedestrians will see our billboard everyday!
NY Times Ad Mockup
Hello ReThink911 Supporters!
On the first day of fundraising for our “New York Times Billboard” we raised $8,000 of the $24,000 needed to secure our billboard. Thank you to all of those who donated so generously! We have only two days to go and we are on pace to reach our goal. But we need your financial support to get there. Donate today to make this great opportunity become a reality!
NY Times Ad Mockup
Here are the details:
With your help, this 29-foot by 13-foot billboard directly across from the New York Times and Port Authority will be ours for the full month of November. Naturally, the opportunity to put a billboard right in front of the New York Times requires a “personalized message,” and so our billboard calls upon the Times to answer for its lack coverage of this vitally important issue. On top of that, it will be seen by 100,000 people each day!
But we can only afford this billboard and create the buzz we are looking for with your support. Between now and Monday, we must raise $24,000 to ensure our planned November 2 installation.
Do you want to put the truth about Building 7 right in face of the NY Times this November? If you do, please donate what you can today.
After this fundraising drive is finished, come join us for the unveiling of the billboard on Saturday, November 2 if you’re close by. The more people who show up, the bigger a splash we’ll make – and that will translate into more attention throughout the rest of the month.
But for now, please chip in what you can to make this remarkable opportunity a reality and keep the ReThink911 campaign going strong through November – and into the future!
Thanks again for your generous support and commitment to this vitally important cause.
ReThink911 is sponsored by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and Remember Building 7, a campaign by 9/11 family members to raise awareness of Building 7.
Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by codes and restrictions.

Executive Order 2013-06
Establishing the Common Core State Standards Steering Committee
signed by Brian Sandoval, the Governor of the State of Nevada
June 24, 2013
EO #2013-06 Establishing the Common Core State Standards Steering Committee
WHEREAS the premises cited in the Execute Order (EO) are based on incorrect information and baseless claims propagated by the proponents of the so-called Common Core State Standards,
WHEREAS the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have NOT been developed by “48 states, hundreds of experts, thousands of educators,” but rather by a private cabal of self-interested agents,
WHEREAS the national and state roll-out of CCSS was done with the same “you have to pass it to find out what’s in it” arrogance as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, a.k.a. “obamacare”),
WHEREAS the 45 states that have signed up, have been enticed, duped and coerced into doing so by manipulating their Race To The Top (RttT) and other grants from the US Department of Education,
WHEREAS the governors of Nevada and other states have accepted the terms set by the US Department of Education long BEFORE the Common Core (CC) English and math standards were released,
WHEREAS no governor has personally participated nor has the professional expertise to participate in the actual writing of educational standards,
WHEREAS the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) have NOT actually commissioned nor actually written any of the standards, but rather the CCSS for English and math were presented to them as a finished product and the principal author had to “sell” them on it, and the NGA and the CCSSO merely own the copyright to them,
WHEREAS some of the very experts who had helped write the standards refuse to endorse and recommend them,
WHEREAS the Nevada state board of education (BoE) has incorrectly interpreted law passed by the legislature (2011 SB14, NRS 389.0187) as authority to impose the CC English and math standards on local school boards without seeking out and examining alternative standards that may be more appropriate to the school children of Nevada,
WHEREAS the Nevada Department of Education (DoE) is spending enormous sums — badly needed elsewhere — on teams and work groups to assist in the implementation of CCSS,
WHEREAS Nevada’s local school districts and other educational institutions have been spending enormous sums — badly needed elsewhere — on their own programs to roll out a program imposed by the state BoE and DoE,
WHEREAS there is no objective scientific proof or validation that CCSS will prepare students either for college or career, or provide them with any of the skills expected by prospective employers, which over the years have always consisted of effective communication, proper English grammar, basic math, punctuality and a work ethic, and being a self-starter rather than needing constant supervision and guidance, NONE of which are nurtured by Common Core’s emphasis on group work, group-think, denial of right and wrong answers, denial of facts, reducing everything in English and civics to subjective opinions and reducing everything in science and math to consensus, not objective verification,
WHEREAS the Nevada System of Higher Education will be burdened with immeasurably higher costs for remedial courses for entering freshmen, as CCSS kicks in and high school graduates are even farther behind, even less ready for college-level work, than they are now,
WHEREAS the CCSS specifically ignore students with special needs,
WHEREAS law passed by the legislature (2013 AB288) is incorrectly interpreted as requiring that Nevada students submit to testing by the Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and its 400-533 insultingly intrusive personal demographic questions about the students and their families, its tracking of students from pre-kindergarten through employment, and the sharing this data indiscriminately by all sorts of government agencies and private entities,
WHEREAS this level of “testing,” data collection and data mining is a gross violation of privacy, expressed explicitly in the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution, section 18 of Article 1 of the Nevada Constitution, and both express and implied in other parts of both Constitutions,
NOW, THEREFORE, exercising the right of petition guaranteed by the Constitutions of the United States and the great State of Nevada, parents and concerned citizens are hereby calling on the Governor to take the only action that is appropriate in this case, to wit:
1. Rescind EO 2013-06 and dissolve the Common Core Standards Steering Committee.
2. Order the Nevada Department of Education to stop all spending on any and all activities related to implementing CCSS for any academic subject.
3. Order Nevada Department of Education and the state board of education NOT to implement the recently released CCSS for science and civics.
4. Order the state board of education to release the local school boards from its requirement to implement CCSS in any subject.
5. Order the state board of education to seek out, study, review and evaluate standards from other states and other countries, and to modify Nevada’s pre-existing standards or write new standards that are more appropriate to Nevada’s school children.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereonto set my hand and caused the keys on my computer’s keyboard to commit this petition to electronic form and be distributed to fellow parents and citizens concerned about the welfare of our children, grandchildren and generations thereafter, in Carson City, Nevada on this eighteenth day of October in the year two thousand and thirteen.
