In a tweetstorm that’s flying under the radar with the media fixation on France’s President Macron lecturing the U.S. on climate change, Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen pleading the Fifth in the Stormy Daniels suit, and Kanye West being “red-pilled,” Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, warns against the dangers of “socialized medicine” in the U.K., which is currently denying toddler Alfie Evans and his parents the right to seek medical treatment in Italy.

What is happening in the U.K. is a crime against humanity as well as a crime against one tiny, almost helpless human being. Parents, imagine being told by the state that you cannot seek medical treatment for your infant, that you have no power over the medical decisions for yourself and your family.

This is the reality of “universal health care”: an infant child slowly being starved and suffocated to death because state doctors and judges don’t think he has a chance to live.
