What’s the difference between AMAC and AARP?
The Constitution …
They think it’s out of date. We think it is the greatest document ever devised by man for the governance of man.
They are for more government. We think there is too much government and wasted spending.
They are scaring older people to get members. AMAC has brought to Congress a solution to keep Social Security Solvent!
They pushed for it and stand to gain millions from their insurance sales. We know it will result in rationing and are fighting to repeal it.
Our National Debt…
They are ignoring it. We are pushing to reduce spending, cut departments and getting our fiscal house in order. They are part of the Liberal Media. AMAC publishes a national magazine that prints both sides of an argument in a fair and balanced way. If you want an organization that will speak out for the values you believe in, Join AMAC today!
Special Urgent Appeal to Every American Over 50:
Join today and spread the word. Conservative Americans need to Join Forces by joining Amac. We need to neutralize the effects of liberal power brokers – like the AARP.
More and more Americans are realizing the NEED for an organization like the AARP – but one that represents the Real America and stands for traditional values, fiscal responsibility and true financial security for those who have earned it.
AMAC is now THE leading conservative alternative to the AARP, providing insurance benefits (including Medicare Supplement, Major Medical), travel discounts and A VOICE THAT TRULY SPEAKS FOR YOU. AMAC membership has recently exploded with a ground swell of grassroots support – from 30,000 members to over 900,000 members.
More and more Americans are realizing that the AARP does not represent their values – while AMAC does.
Your fellow Americans are joiningAMAC because the AARP:
Does not represent best interest.
Misrepresents the needs and wishes of American over 50.
Aggressively backed ObamaCare against the wishes of their members. From whom they now stand to take $1 Billion Dollars as a direct result of Medicare cuts AARP supported.
Supports aggressive Gun Control.
Supports federally-funded Abortion.
Supports big government and encourages Federal spending. (They received over $100 million in grants last year.)
They either support or are silent on many other issues that seniors oppose.
They have very limited choices for insurance benefits. Every policy they sell furthers their agenda.
$1 Billion reward for passage of ObamaCare VIDEO:Join the AMAC Army. Together we can make a difference. Tell the AARP, “No More!” In what will be the MOST IMPORTANT election in our nation’s history – we need to neutralize AARP’s power. they were a powerhouse for Obama in the last election. We can’t allow thatto be repeated. We need to let our elected representativesknow AARP doesn’t speak for US.AMAC does.
Finally, we know why AARP worked so hard to get ObamaCare passed. As reported recently in the New York Times and Washington Post, a Congressional Oversight committee released the findings of a year-long investigation that revealed how AARP stands to make nearly $1 billion over the next 10 years if ObamaCare remains in effect.Watch the video of AARP President, A. Barry Rand being questioned in Congress.This is why we need your help. AMAC is fighting to help mature Americans, not push legislation that profits us.

On January 1, 2014, ObamaCare cut nearly $22 billion from Medicare home health care over four years. That means an estimated 3.5 million poor and ill homebound senior citizens woke up on New Year’s Day to discover that ObamaCare had slashed funding for their home health care program.
Last year, Medicare home health services were delivered to approximately 3.5 million Medicare beneficiaries. According to the federal government’s own data, these seniors are older, poorer and sicker than the Medicare beneficiary population as whole. Many of these seniors also reside in rural communities, where home health care is especially important because other sources of treatment are often located many miles away.
But wait, there’s more: according to the Obama Administration’s own statistics, “approximately 40 percent” of all providers of home health services face net losses as a result of this Medicare cut. Put more plainly, 4-in-10 of all the providers on whom homebound seniors depend face the threat of bankruptcy and closure as a result of ObamaCare. That’s 5,000 home health care companies and 500,000 jobs wiped out in order to pay for ObamaCare.
Of course, this is merely one example of how ObamaCare is hurting American citizens, affecting American businesses and impacting American jobs. AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, is leading the charge to rescind this reprehensible attack on America’s seniors and small businesses. We have always believed that ObamaCare was a destructive and costly monstrosity – and we support a full repeal.
As the fastest growing alternative to groups like AARP, we aim to champion the interests of mature Americans, seniors and prospective retirees. We believe in religious freedom, free enterprise and support common sense solutions to our Nation’s largest challenges.
Our nation’s economic growth and our citizens’ future prosperity should not be threatened from bad policies emanating from Washington DC.
Join the AMAC Army today and spread the word to friends, family and neighbors – help us fight government overreach and unaccountable Federal spending in the nation’s Capital with greater strength in numbers!

Child taken from womb by social services
Exclusive: Essex social services have obtained a court order against a woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and for her child to be taken from her womb by caesarean section
A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers.
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.
The baby girl, now 15 months old, is still in the care of social services, who are refusing to give her back to the mother, even though she claims to have made a full recovery.
The case has developed into an international legal row, with lawyers for the woman describing it as “unprecedented”.
They claim that even if the council had been acting in the woman’s best interests, officials should have consulted her family beforehand and also involved Italian social services, who would be better-placed to look after the child.
Brendan Fleming, the woman’s British lawyer, told The Sunday Telegraph: “I have never heard of anything like this in all my 40 years in the job.
“I can understand if someone is very ill that they may not be able to consent to a medical procedure, but a forced caesarean is unprecedented.
“If there were concerns about the care of this child by an Italian mother, then the better plan would have been for the authorities here to have notified social services in Italy and for the child to have been taken back there.”
The case, reported by Christopher Booker in his column in The Sunday Telegraph, raises fresh questions about the extent of social workers’ powers.
It will be raised in Parliament this week by John Hemming, a Liberal Democrat MP. He chairs the Public Family Law Reform Coordinating Campaign, which wants reform and greater openness in court proceedings involving family matters.
He said: “I have seen a number of cases of abuses of people’s rights in the family courts, but this has to be one of the more extreme.
“It involves the Court of Protection authorising a caesarean section without the person concerned being made aware of what was proposed. I worry about the way these decisions about a person’s mental capacity are being taken without any apparent concern as to the effect on the individual being affected.”
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is an Italian national who come to Britain in July last year to attend a training course with an airline at Stansted Airport in Essex.
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
She called the police, who became concerned for her well-being and took her to a hospital, which she then realised was a psychiatric facility.
She has told her lawyers that when she said she wanted to return to her hotel, she was restrained and sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
Meanwhile, Essex social services obtained a High Court order in August 2012 for the birth “to be enforced by way of caesarean section”, according to legal documents seen by this newspaper.
The woman, who says she was kept in the dark about the proceedings, says that after five weeks in the ward she was forcibly sedated. When she woke up she was told that the child had been delivered by C-section and taken into care.
In February, the mother, who had gone back to Italy, returned to Britain to request the return of her daughter at a hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Her lawyers say that she had since resumed taking her medication, and that the judge formed a favourable opinion of her. But he ruled that the child should be placed for adoption because of the risk that she might suffer a relapse.
The cause has also been raised before a judge in the High Court in Rome, which has questioned why British care proceedings had been applied to the child of an Italian citizen “habitually resident” in Italy. The Italian judge accepted, though, that the British courts had jurisdiction over the woman, who was deemed to have had no “capacity” to instruct lawyers.
Lawyers for the woman are demanding to know why Essex social services appear not have contacted next of kin in Italy to consult them on the case.
They are also upset that social workers insisted on placing the child in care in Britain, when there had been an offer from a family friend in America to look after her.
An expert on social care proceedings, who asked not to be named because she was not fully acquainted with the details of the case, described it as “highly unusual”.
She said the council would first have to find “that she was basically unfit to make any decision herself” and then shown there was an acute risk to the mother if a natural birth was attempted.
An Essex county council spokesman said the local authority would not comment on ongoing cases involving vulnerable people and children.
66-Year-Old Gay Rights Icon Arrested Over Horrific Child Porn Allegations (Graphic Content)
(Photo via the SF Examiner)
66-year-old Larry Brinkin, the first man to use the phrase “domestic partner” in a lawsuit, was arrested in California Friday in connection with felony possession of child pornography, police said. The district attorney’s office will reportedly decide Tuesday whether to file charges.
Media reports are offering more details on the horrific charges, and are also providing a picture of who Brinkin is and how he’s been viewed. The Huffington Post republished an SF Weekly post that concludes with Theresa Sparks, the executive director of the Human Rights Commission, saying:
“It’s almost incredulous, there’s no way I could believe such a thing…He’s always been one of my heroes, and he’s the epitome of human rights activist — this is man who coined phrases we use in our daily language. I support Larry 100 percent; hopefully it will all come out in the investigation.”
But while there is a certain degree of disbelief, other sources are pointing out that the evidence against Brinkin certainly warrants investigation.
Caution: what follows is extremely disturbing.
Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.
Representatives of America Online contacted authorities after coming across e-mail attachments from one of its subscriber’s accounts containing what they believed to be child pornography.
The Los Angeles Police Department, which was assigned to the case, traced the IP address associated with the account, Zack3737@aol.com, to Brinkin, a San Francisco resident, according to court records. Los Angeles police forwarded the case to San Francisco police.
San Francisco investigators say the account was registered to Brinkin, and that he paid for the e-mail service with his credit card.
Police provided two examples of e-mail messages from last year in which Zack3737 provides disturbing descriptions of the exploitative sexual acts.
The e-mail account also is linked to Yahoo discussion groups on sexual exploitation of young boys and girls, according to the search warrant. [Emphasis added]
Though the Huffington Post links to part of an article from the SF Weekly, the updated article has far more graphic details:
Zack3737@aol.com — whom the police allege is Brinkin — provided graphic commentary on the photos of interracial adult-child sex. Comments included “I loved especially the ni**er 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you’ll continue so I can see what the little blond bi*ch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White D*ck Rules!”
The AOL e-mail account was also linked to Yahoo! Groups centering around discussions of child porn, according to the search warrant. Investigators say they additionally found e-mails sent from Brinkin’s now-defunct city e-mail account to firstname.lastname@example.org. [Emphasis added]

The news follows the conclusion of “Pride Week,” where Brinkin has been honored in the past. After he retired from his 22-year tenure at the Human Rights Commission, the Board of Supervisors even declared the week of February 1, 2o10 “Larry Brinkin Week” in San Francisco.
Brinkin, who reportedly has a longtime partner and teenage son, was not taking questions Monday, but several blogs have risen to his defense. According to PJ Media blogger Zombie, the “Lez Get Real” blog was the first to do so, writing:
There have been incidents where people have been arrested for possessing child pornography on their computer that turned out to be malware using the computer to launder the images. This can often be difficult for people to prove, however.
Do not be surprised that anti-LGBT organizations will use this arrest against the Community; however, it is important to remember that most pedophiles identify as straight, and there are many straight people who have been arrested, charged, and convicted for possession of child pornography.
Brinkin’s co-workers and supporters seem just as stunned as everyone else by the arrest. The vice president of the California Association of Human Relations Organizations said Brinkin was always a consummate professional, and Bevan Dufty, who authored the board resolution for “Larry Brinkin Week,” said: “I have admired and respected his work for the LGBT community…I respect and am confident that there will be due process.”
Valerie Jarrett Targets Hobby Lobby as a ‘Corporate Entity’ Trying to ‘Seize a Controlling Interest’ Over Women’s Health
Nov. 27, 2013 4:42pm
White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett called out Hobby Lobby and insisted the Obamacare mandate case that will go before the Supreme Court is about whether big corporations can restrict women from having access to birth control.

“No corporate entity should be in position to limit women’s legal access to care, or to seize a controlling interest over the health care choices of women,” Jarrett wrote on the White House blog. “To take that type of power away from individuals, and to let the personal beliefs of a woman’s boss dictate her health care choices would constitute a major step backward for women’s health and self-determination.”
The case is actually a religious freedom complaint against the administration for the Health and Human Services mandate requiring insurance to provide free coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraception and sterilization. If the plaintiffs win, it would not allow them to restrict employees from buying these products on their own, only that the employees would not get them for free.
The high court will hear the case from two family-owned companies, the Oklahoma-based chain Hobby Lobby and the Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Store Corp., both of which argue that paying for employee-based coverage of these drug violates their religious freedom.
“Today, there are people trying to take this right away from women, by letting private, for-profit corporations and employers make medical decisions for their employees, based on their personal beliefs,” said Jarrett, whose blog was cross-posted on the Huffington Post.
Jarrett predicted victory in the high court, and called out just one of the plaintiffs.
“Among the first cases to reach the Supreme Court is one filed by Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts chain whose owners want to be able to take the option for birth control benefits away from their employees,” Jarrett said.
The two litigants in the case are not trying to restrict anyone’s freedom, said Sarah Torre, policy analyst for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
“This is an interesting argument from the administration that pushed a health care law that severely restrictions the ability for Americans to choose health care that aligns with the value of their family and restricting companies that could be creating jobs,” Torre told TheBlaze. “Obamacare is about restricting choices.”
“No one is suggesting a ban on anything,” Torre continued. “This is about family businesses – the Green family and the Hahns family – about their freedom to continue to create jobs while respecting their values.”
The Green family is the owner of Hobby Lobby. The Hahns family owns Conestoga Wood. Lower courts split on the decision, ruling in favor of the Green family and against the Hahns family.
You Might Be Surprised by Who’s Furious at MSNBC Over Martin Bashir’s Sarah Palin Comments
Nov. 24, 2013 6:21pm
Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik angrily criticized MSNBC and NBC News — along with network stalwarts Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd — for failing not only to punish host Martin Bashir for comments he made about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin recently, but also for not even speaking about the issue.

“Where are people like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd who claim to speak for NBC News and the brand?” Zurawik asked Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on Sunday’s “MediaBuzz” program.
“Why haven’t they called Bashir out and the lack of punishment for him?”
Zurawik said Bashir’s comments and the lack of reaction from MSNBC hosts and the network as a whole is “part of the larger problem here, that the mainstream media isn’t more upset about this.”
“I’ve been complaining about the way our civic and political conversation on cable TV is debased,” he said. “And MSNBC has led that drive in a calculated way because they have no journalistic function. They have no reportorial infrastructure anymore for business reasons.”
Zurawik noted that when hosts are just “sitting in front of a camera doing opinion, you have to keep turning it up and turning it up and turning it up and being more and more extreme. And this is what we got. And no one cares! That’s what’s outrageous! Whatever you care about, whatever you feel about Sarah Palin doesn’t matter. The conversation of democracy, you can’t have this kind of stuff going on!”
As for the question of whether the media treats Sarah Palin with a double standard because she’s conservative, Zurawik said, “I think there is some of that, Howie, but the real question are where are people like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd who claim to speak for NBC News and the brand? Why haven’t they called Bashir out and the lack of punishment for him?”

‘You’re Just a Young Punk’: 70-Year-Old Great-Grandma Gives Pistol-Whipping Thug More Than He Bargained For
Nov. 22, 2013 9:49am
Wanda Pierce, 70, pulled into her son’s driveway like she does every morning, hopping out of the driver’s seat to the passenger side and waiting for her son to emerge so the pair could carpool to work.
Suddenly her passenger door opened. Pierce thought it was her son.

“As soon as I turned my head, there we were, face-to-face,” Pierce told WTHR-TV in Indianapolis. She wasn’t looking at her son, but another man in his early 20s.
And he was pointing a gun at Pierce and grabbing the purse on her lap.
That’s when the great-grandmother did something her attacker probably wasn’t expecting.
“For some particular reason, instinct told me at the same time, ‘That’s mine,’” Pierce told WTHR of the Tuesday attack. “‘I work for what I get. You’re just a young punk running around out here doing things you ought not do and you’re not getting my purse.’”
“Then he told me, ‘Lady, give me the purse or I’m going to shoot you,’” Pierce recalled. “And that’s when I told him, ‘No, you won’t’ — bad word — and I held on to it anyway,” she told WTHR.

Pierce acknowledged that the safest path in that situation was to give up her purse — and that if she had to do it over again she’d make a different choice — but “until you’re in that situation, you really don’t know what you’d do.”
“I was bound and determined to keep what was mine,” she said. “Didn’t work.”
The attacker then pistol-whipped her, Pierce said. “He hit me in the head and I knew it was bleeding, but I still held on.”
“I continued to hold onto the purse and he hit me here,” she added, pointing to her right wrist.
“And something else hit me that said ‘let go’ and I let go,” Pierce said.

The man may have gotten away with her purse, but Pierce said she’d face him in court in a heartbeat and give him a piece of her mind.
“I’d tell him, ‘I hope that wherever you’re going, somebody beats the living tar out of you because you deserve it,’” Pierce told the station. “I only got hurt, but that’s all right. At least I gave ‘em a fight. I don’t think he quite expected that either.”
Why it is easy for President Obama to lie to the American people
Published November 18, 2013
There are at least these two differences this time: First, the admission of the lie does not come at a moment when this president is facing impeachment (which would almost certainly have been true for President Nixon had he not resigned).
Second, this president still shows, in my opinion, even after his most recent mea culpa, far less remorse than President Nixon showed in the speech he made upon announcing he would leave office and in his choice to leave office.
I do not believe the president sees most Americans as competent. I believe he sees them as children.
In this case, the president lied to Americans about the Affordable Care Act, promising that passing the legislation meant they could keep their health plans and doctors, when the truth is that tens of millions of people will likely lose their health care plans and be forced to switch doctors.
That’s a really big lie, however you measure it — whether in the tens of millions of people affected, or the hundreds of thousands of doctors, or the dozens of insurance companies, or the thousands and thousands of employers or the rerouting of billions of dollars.
Yet, the president only said he was “sorry that people are finding themselves in this situation based on reassurances they got from me.”
He didn’t say that he had profoundly violated the trust of the American people.
He didn’t say that he would search his soul for the reason he could have been so intent on passing his legislation that he promised very important things he knew he could not deliver.
He didn’t say that the rage people feel toward him is justified.
Why does it seem so easy for the president to tell such a gargantuan lie?
- In order to feel guilty about deceiving someone, an individual must have respect for that person.
- He must consider the other man or woman his equal.
- He must believe that depriving the other man or woman of the truth would be a sin because it deprives that person of free will. Because without the facts, competent people can’t make informed decisions.
But I do not believe the president sees most Americans as competent. I believe he sees them as children, who cannot think for themselves, nor support themselves, nor defend themselves.
And because he believes this is a nation of children who are powerless to truly decide anything knowledgably, withholding certain facts from them “for their own good,” is no different than telling the kids a few harmless lies to keep them safe and settle them down and calm their anxieties.
“This doesn’t taste bad,” a father might say to his daughter before giving her medicine, even when he knows it will. The lie is forgivable. It’s meant to keep his little girl from being too anxious and refusing what she needs.
But tell a competent adult something tastes good when it will make him gag, and you’ll be, rightfully, seen as having deprived the person of information he deserved.
This president was lied to by his father who abandoned him, by his mother who abandoned him and by the grandmother who hugged him, but also revealed that she distrusted men of color.
Now, he wants to be the only adult in town. He needs that much power to feel safe, because he was that disempowered and unsafe in the past. So, to him, we’re incompetents.
To him, we’re just kids who need to take our medicine. And lying is the easy and justifiable way to get the job done.
