Hillary Clinton San Diego Appearance Changes To Satellite As Protest Swells
Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a sudden scheduling change related to her appearance in San Diego on April 11, 2014 at a major healthcare conference. Local residents made aware of Hillary Clinton's coming to San Diego organized a protest rally addressing the former Secretary's role in what has been termed the Benghazi Cover Up. According to Pat Smith, mother of one of the fallen heroes Sean Smith, attendees were given a notice last week that Hillary's appearance as Key Note Speaker had been changed to a satellite presentation. Hillary Clinton's swing through California for April 2014 was... read more

AAPS Supports Dr. Alieta Eck for U.S. House - NJ 12
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), a voice for private medicine since 1943, enthusiastically supports Alieta Eck, MD for New Jersey's 12th Congressional District seat in the United States House of Representatives.

A Physician Reflects on the 2013 Inaugural Address
By: Marilyn Singleton, M.D., J.D. Despite the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, many of us were too busy seeing patients to hear President Obama’s second inaugural address.

I feel some moral authority and passion on this subject as a black American whose family moved here from England in... read more

ObamaCare Worse than Canadian System
By G. Keith Smith, M.D. - SurgeryCenterOK.com For all the criticisms I’ve written about the Canadian healthcare system, I think that all things considered, it is probably better (as awful as it is) than what we know as ObamaCare. I see the two recent Presidential candidates as a socialist (the winner) and a fascist (the loser). The socialist is a wealth redistributionist primarily, but moves in some fascist, public-private partnership circles to fuel his financial needs. The loser, while giving lip service to “liberty” and “freedom” is primarily a tool of the businesses that serve to benefit from their relationship... read more
