Escape from Paradise – the Promotional Trailer

Reward for information regarding Seth Rich

One America News Network (OAN) is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in former DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder case.

The Herring Networks, Inc. media company OAN joins a number of individuals and groups that are willing to pay for information that solves the July 10, 2016, killing of Mr. Rich. The election-season murder continues to spark conspiracy theories based on the suggestion that Mr. Rich provided DNC data to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

“One America News believes solving this case — and bringing Rich’s murderer to justice — is essential to exposing the truth for the American people,” OAN’s Greta Wall reported Monday. “We are offering a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in the case. If you have any information, please email us at”

Others offering rewards include the Washington, D.C. Police Department ($25,000); WikiLeaks ($20,000); and Republican strategist Jack Burkman ($130,000).

Obama, Obama, pants on fire

Obama campaigned on a public healthcare option for the American people. Now, according to Senate majority leader, Harry Reid announced that the said Tuesday night that he and a group of 10 Democratic senators had reached “a broad agreement” to cancel the public option.

Instead, the new healthcare bill will let people from 55 to 65 to purchase Medicare for a proposed $550 a month.

This is a far cry from Obama’s “public option,” loosely modeled on what other first-world industrialized countries.

First off, the proposed $550 a month shows a major disconnect between the wealthy nabobs of Washington and the American people. While $550 is dinner money for Harry Reid, or flowers for Nancy Pelosi, it represents a major chunk of whatever income the American uninsured may have.

Of course, if the fine and imprisonment for not being insured is large enough, $550 a month may sound pretty good.

The politicos, and their paymasters from the healthcare industry, contend that American healthcare is far superior to that of countries with “public options.”

Not quite – just look at the figures below to see how far ahead behind America is in its “quality” of healthcare.

America lags far behind other countries, and the situation is getting worse, especially with rising healthcare costs which are totally uncontrolled by that great American myth – competition.

The Great American Healthcare Scam, concocted by Obama and friends, will do little more that deliver 45 million Americans into the clutches of private health insurance companies.

A leading architect of the healthcare scam is sleazy Senator Max Baucus with $4 million in “contributions” from healthcare lobbyists. Baucus’ sleaze even extended to his girlfriend, Melodee Hanesa, for a United States attorney position last March.

But Baucus isn’t the sleaziest guy in town. Obama outsleased Baucus by having his people pull his promised “public option” at the last moment.

  • America the beautiful

    Doesn’t matter. Obama will complete his term. Or may even win another term. Just like Bush Jr.

    And America will stay peaceful and democratic, no matter what the jobless rate, the deficit, the obscene Wall St bonuses, the war in Iraq and Afganistan, etc. Even if bankrupt the world is willing to bankroll America through the trust in the US $. But not so for other countries.

    This is the beauty of America and its system.
