Charlie Gard, the British newborn boy with a rare brain disease passed away this week, but his death may not be in vain. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at socialized medicine, death panels, and bureaucracies, and points out that the patient is always the last to be considered. Free health care isn’t free and little Charlie’s death has reminded us of that.
Also John dissects Fareed Zakaria’s comments about Trump voters in our brand new clip of the week.

Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation, discusses one of her cases involving a church in Michigan that lost their property to the state and how taking away property rights brings us one step closer to losing our free country.
Did Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook just agree to adhere to Pakistan’s blasphemy laws online?

John’s quote of the week:
“Normally socialized healthcare flows this way: the government gets first say, the healthcare insurers and payers get second say, then the healthcare providers whose jobs depend on the government payer system get third say, and that’s pretty much it. Oh, did we forget? I’m sorry! You’re the patient, aren’t you? Well, you’re down at the bottom of the totem pole.”
This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief, John discusses the upcoming solar eclipse, the fascinating historical significance of the Jewish observance of Tisha B’Av, currency & inflation, and the growing problem of socialized medicine.
