All You Need to Know About AARP's Support of Obamacare

Via the AP:
 "Democrats lined up a range of outside groups behind their legislation, none more important than the AARP, whose support promises political cover against the cuts to Medicare in next year's congressional elections."
 "Cover"? How can AARP provide "cover" for cuts it hitherto swore to protect?

 Easy, payoff.

The  AARP will receive millions from healthcare reform as "kickbacks"  in return for that "cover" when Obamacare begins to slice and dice medicare.

"AARP revenues show how big its insurance business is.
 Last year, the group collected $222 million in royalties from UnitedHealthcare, which provides most of the health insurance marketed under the AARP brand. That figure is almost as much as AARP collected in dues from its members.
 But David Mathis, AARP senior vice president for health services, says the organization offers what its members need to have, not what corporate partners want to sell.
 "They come into the relationship knowing where that is, even though they may not agree with us and we don't always agree with them," Mathis says. "
Everybody's eyes were wide open when we entered this relationship."
 Still, questions about the organization's finances have been raising eyebrows for years. And America's two main parties take turns being angry at AARP.
 Speaking in 1995, Republican Sen. Alan Simpson said, "AARP has drifted considerably from any possible description of a nonprofit, quote, organization."

 The call to cancel memberships and boycott the AARP grows and I call on other bloggers, 50+ to join the call to do the same.

AARP is NOT on the side of senior Americans, they don't deserve our support.  Send the message NOW.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
