WH Dossier Hit by the Plague

by Keith Koffler on January 16, 2013, 1:55 pm


I’ve come down with this flu that’s going around and need to take a litte downtime. There are, shall we say, abdominal features to the illness. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow morning. My apologies, as I know there are lots of things to talk about.

Best wishes to all,



AnotherOpinion January 16, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Hope you feel better very soon.

William January 16, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Get well, Keith!

Lizzy January 16, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Get better soon.

Danceswithtruth January 16, 2013 at 2:03 pm

May the Great Physician touch you with His healing hand. At least He won’t ask you if you own any guns. Get well.

GotFreedom January 16, 2013 at 2:08 pm

Feel better soon. . .we’ll keep up the fight for the truth until you get back!

srdem65 January 16, 2013 at 2:09 pm

Ouch. take care, drink lots of fluids.

Florida Girl January 16, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Oh no, Keith. Hope you feel better soon. May the abdominal illness not confine you to the throne too much!!!!

Langley Spook January 16, 2013 at 2:14 pm

So… the “Obama WH” got to you Mr. Koffler after posting all your Comments about Obama when it comes to the ‘Fiscal Cliff/Economy’ and ‘Gun Control’…
I PRAY & HOPE your “flu” is nothing like that ‘issue’ (Obama vs. Syria ‘chemical weapons’ use, which the Obama WH will not admit too) going on now…

ScottyDoesn'tKnow January 16, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I had the same reaction listening to the Obama presser.

lc southern January 16, 2013 at 2:16 pm

Take care of yourself. Get well soon.

nellyq January 16, 2013 at 2:37 pm

Oh dear–is this an after effect of “the president’s” little press release? rest up and get well soon!

Just2old January 16, 2013 at 2:44 pm

So, you opened the door and Influenza? Don’t open the door!

Get well soon!

mo1 January 16, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Get well soon.

SAllen January 16, 2013 at 2:51 pm

We will miss you…even for a day!

Car in January 16, 2013 at 2:52 pm

Oye. Get better soon!

Otis Driftwood January 16, 2013 at 3:03 pm

hang in there and get well, it’s going to take some time.

Star January 16, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Saltines, tea and bananas–when you can even stand the idea. Sleep!

regina January 16, 2013 at 3:10 pm

sorry :(

RickW January 16, 2013 at 3:21 pm

Keith, its not the flu. Its Obamaitis.

Take care, my friend!

William January 16, 2013 at 3:30 pm

Since Keith is out, what did everyone think of the Gun Show? I had five main thoughts:
1) I thought they were surprisingly soft given the rhetoric that had been coming from his side. Especially that there was no proposal for registration.
2) Additional officers for schools? Wasn’t LaPierre roundly criticized for this very suggestion?
3) While I support increased efforts to keep the mentally ill from acquiring firearms, there were a few too many references to addressing violence from a “health care” perspective. Maybe that’s the angle they plan on using to get rid of them.
4) My doctor can ask about my firearms, but he better be ready to hear me tell him to shove it. He doesn’t ask about how much rat poison I’ve bought lately.
5) If a mass shooting happens in New York despite their new laws, want to bet that’s used as a reason to adopt them nationwide? (P.S.: I purchased a Benelli M4 in New York a few years back when stationed there. Now, the very thing I purchased there is illegal there. But I’ll never, ever go back to that state so it doesn’t matter.)

srdem65 January 16, 2013 at 4:13 pm

1. He didn’t have the votes and no, the whole country was not in favor of new gun controls. They overestimated their position and underestimated the power of law-abiding American’s ability to draw a red line.
2. Of course he was ridiculed. He was not supposed to say that because the President was supposed to give the Lefties/unions an opportunity to enrich their treasuries with new hires.
3. Health care is a code word for ratting out someone who’s angry at someone else so they report the supposed nutcase and have his firearms confiscated. That should include almost everyone who comments here and owns firearms.
4. What doctor? Your dentist, your shrink, the one who sucks the blood from your veins, the oncologist, the dermatologist, etc? If they do anything at all, it will be to add that question to your “check in” form. So, lie.

William January 16, 2013 at 4:21 pm

Any doctor. Anyone who inquires as to my ownership will be told to shove it unless it’s a close personal friend. I brag on my Benelli (it is just too sweet not to), but otherwise there’s no need for anyone to know what I have.

MarjoJimbo January 16, 2013 at 5:40 pm

My doctor told me that Obamacare requires a patient “social” history be included in our medical records. So when you are asked anything personal, be prepared for it to be in your records for anyone (except you or your loved ones) to have access to.

Because of this, I do not tell my doctor anything that I don’t mind anyone finding out.

Lizzy January 16, 2013 at 8:25 pm

A visit to the Dr or hospital is right up there with the Spanish

Otis Driftwood January 16, 2013 at 9:36 pm

what I foresee is this will all be entered into a database, and failure to answer will be flagged. So you go onto a list, and the next thing you know is you get a visit from the Obamacare Police for failure to answer a “required” question. However, if a visit is made, I do hope they have a warrant if they think they will search my home. Wondering if that is also included somewhere in a EO.. they don’t need a warrant.

This new info addition into a shared database is going to be a very dangerous thing if used in the wrong way. I can see some good things from it, but that is another story.

Where the heck is ACLU in all this??

Shofar January 17, 2013 at 8:15 am

Part of Obamacare is the creation and integration of a national healthcare database. Innocuous questions such as “Do you have a firearm” are already being included on intake forms for people on Medicaid (at least in my state). People do not understand that answering questions such as the firearm question goes beyond what the doctor/patient relationship requires.

With Obama’s new executive orders regarding doctor/patient confidentiality, the opportunity for HHS and DHS to review your medical files has just cracked open. Given the Obama machine’s ability to data mine as efficiently as it does, how long before the administration starts to hire the same organization to data mine all the medical records being accumulated?

Susan January 16, 2013 at 5:50 pm

Need to keep what’s left of my sanity, so refused to participate in his agitprop. Rush had a great explanation of the difference between the left and conservatives and how each views their fellow Americans. The statists have to control us because they don’t believe in our inherent goodness or our ability to make the right judgment. It’s all about power and control over our lives. Resist Tyranny.

Susan January 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm

Feel better soon, Keith. Get plenty of rest and keep up your fluids.

Boo January 16, 2013 at 3:49 pm

Keith – are you sure the “abdominal features” of the illness are not abominable issues after listening to His Arrogance this morning? Even with the sound off, he is worse every day. Seriously, get well soon – we need you. O/T – where is Granny Jan? We need her back also.

Traveler767 January 16, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Get well soon, Keith. And thanks for not putting too fine a point on the “abdominal features” of your illness.

Guillermo Grande January 16, 2013 at 4:03 pm

Hope you feel better soon.

Ginger Schiferly January 16, 2013 at 4:12 pm

If you’re ill, you most likely won’t be checking the posts. However, us the BRAY diet…you’ll be better faster.


Amazing how quickly those “abdominal features to the illness” go away.

Best wishes,
Miss Ginger

sablegsd January 16, 2013 at 4:57 pm

Take care of yourself. We will be here when you get well. So will the commiecrat insanity.

Hope you get better quick Keith. My wife is a RN and our local hospital is FULL of people with this flu. Take your time and get well..

Sol January 16, 2013 at 5:12 pm

Hope you get over it soon – in the meantime, please try to make the opportunity to sneeze on carney? Every little bit helps…

MarjoJimbo January 16, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Get well soon.

Rest assured knowing that you have done such a wonderful job with your blog that it continues on even while you are indisposed!

My best for a speedy recovery, Rex

Julie Brueckheimer January 16, 2013 at 6:20 pm

Rest up!

Mari January 16, 2013 at 8:18 pm

Hope you feel better soon. About 3-4 days based on my family’s experience.

Robin H January 16, 2013 at 9:44 pm

If you have to see the doctor, whatever you do, don’t tell him where your guns are!

Feel better!

SnarkEsq. January 17, 2013 at 6:12 am

Ha, good one!

qestout January 16, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Tamiflu is supposed to help if prescribed w/in 48 hours of symptoms.

Two words: Chicken Soup.
Two more words: Speedy Recovery!

Take care, see you on the Well side :)

rulierose January 17, 2013 at 12:01 am

I hope by the time you read this you are all better!
and I feel your pain. a few suggestions:
-people will tell you to drink those Gatorade type drinks to replenish your fluids, and that’s fine, but I always feel like having a big icy glass of Canada Dry Gingerale with a teensy bit of Angostura bitters. great for the tummy.
-my other favorite thing to drink is Mexican Coke, which comes in glass bottles and is made with real cane sugar, not the poly-woly-hydrogenated-fructose-whatever that our US Cokes are.
-and my third suggestion for that type of stomach ailment is now legal in two states, and for medical purposes in many more.

Hope you feel better soon!

Swedishlady January 17, 2013 at 3:15 am

JustMe January 17, 2013 at 5:35 am

Take care of yourself, Keith, and get well soon. And disinfect everything you touch and keep away from loved ones till you’re better!

SnarkEsq. January 17, 2013 at 6:10 am

Oh no, Keith. Sorry the flu got one of the good guys. Rest up and feel better soon!

(Secretly wishing the flu from hell on BHO)

TimG January 17, 2013 at 7:16 am

hope you feel better Keith

Stay away from those government health panels!

Keith Koffler January 17, 2013 at 7:45 am

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes. It’s so nice of you. I can’t imagine any writer has a better group of readers.

Shofar January 17, 2013 at 8:18 am

Chicken soup and yogurt, not mixed though.

Feel better soon.

Gloved hugs and masked kisses from all of us who hang out here.

Anne Lieberman January 17, 2013 at 8:24 am

Given your daily exposure to toxins, this may be Otrauma… rather than the flu. The symptoms are similar. I’ve heard there may be a cure as soon as 2016, but in the meantime you might have to go through life… Otraumatized. It’s never too soon to apply for disability benefits, just in case.

Hope you feel better soon.

James Riman January 17, 2013 at 8:56 am

Don’t worry. Obamacare will take care of you and your needs

Quintus Arrius January 17, 2013 at 12:33 pm

Sorry to hear you’re down with the flu. Hope you make a speedy recovery.
