Charles Burris with a post on marauders and vandals going after the Tadeusz Kościuszko monument in Washington DC. He quotes the article he links to about Tadeusz Kościuszko:
Kościuszko also fought for the rights of national and racial minorities. In his will, he donated a portion of his estate to free black slaves belonging to Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers of the United States. However, Jefferson did not fulfil Kościuszko’s testament.
Kościuszko also bequeathed sums for the education of freed Afro-American slaves to enable them to function normally in society. According to many historians, he was ahead of his time with this will.
And supposedly “Uncle Ben’s” rice will change its name and logo, because of “racial stereotypes,” even though the guy “Uncle Ben” was a prominent black farmer in Texas, not a manual laborer but the owner of his business selling great rice to millers. The makers of “Uncle Ben’s” are caving to ignorance and irrationality by changing the product’s name for no good reason.
Are you getting sick of the COVID scamdemic as I am? David Stockman with an article on the recent “2nd wave” of coronavirus, with some comments regarding the windbag Scott Gottlieb, and the so-called “hot spots” of Texas and Arizona (and Florida). He gives a lot of actual facts and figures to counter the fear-mongering propaganda and says, “hot spot my eye!”. I think that the economic recovery and decreasing COVID were happening too soon and quickly for some people’s liking, and so the Trump-haters on Wall Street are again doing their thing just like in February and March and the medical fear-mongers are bringing their COVID propaganda back to try to get a “2nd wave” of lockdowns and stay-in orders.
Also, Shane Trejo at “Big League Politics” with an article on psychological researchers claiming that resisting and challenging the COVID hysteria and panic and fear-mongering is a sign of “mental illness.” I am not. Making. This. Up. (But I am not sure about all those who believe all the propaganda despite the uncovered lies and the cheating making up “COVID deaths” out of non-COVID deaths, and those sheeple nevertheless obediently compliant with all the diktats…)
And Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the new coronavirus “2nd wave” and ask, Is the CDC lying again?
A lot of rational people are saying they are more fearful of the PANIC than they are of COVID-19 coronavirus itself. And I am in total agreement with that. The panic is sickening, and it is being driven by the idiots in the media, many of whom hate Donald Trump, and that is probably their main motivation to incite panic and elicit people to rush to Walmart to hoard toilet paper.
What is this obsession with toilet paper? COVID-19 is mainly a respiratory disease and it doesn’t really affect your digestive system or cause diarrhea or excessive number of BMs, supposedly. Is that what the panic-stricken sheeple are worried about out there?
“Fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath.” Those are the CDC’s official known symptoms of COVID-19. More severe cases involve the lungs being filled with excess fluid and people “drowning” that way. Those more severe cases are the ones who need the ICU.
But much of this panic is media driven, and based on political motivations. Some people are linking to a Rush Limbaugh episode last week in which he compares this epidemic to the 2009-2010 H1N1 “swine flu” epidemic. Limbaugh says, “60 million people infected, 300,000 hospitalized.” But where was the panic at that time? There wasn’t any panic. At least, I don’t remember any panic.
The difference is that OBAMA was President then, and the hated Trump is President now!
And some of the government and media’s panic-incitement is also to do with their exploiting the crisis to sneak in their little government programs like paid sick leave or whatever the CONgress just voted for. The bill supposedly is for “emergency” sick leave, but language in the bill shows that they are putting permanent changes in the law. That is why those 40 Republicans voted against the bill. Rep. Louis Gohmert explains the details.
Politicians of both major parties, which make up the one Big Government racket, love to exploit crises to insert their own pet legislation into emergency bills. They are criminals.
But the panic now is unnecessary, and it really is frightening, and we can blame the government-media complex for this, including Upchuck Todd a.k.a. Chuck Toady and George Snuffleupagus whose respective shows are on today.
And I’m not sure about the “social distancing” recommendation. It’s probably good for the more vulnerable people such as elderly and those with serious medical conditions or illnesses. But is it really necessary for everybody else?
Actually social isolation can cause people additional stress, and stress affects the immune system. Just some food for thought there.
I have heard that someone could be healthy and may even have contracted the COVID-19 coronavirus but isn’t experiencing any symptoms because his immune system is strong. But he could be a “carrier” and could give it to someone who is more vulnerable. But if someone is more vulnerable, then really it is that person who should be practicing “social distancing.”
And in that case, why doesn’t everyone just stay in and not go out and practice “social distancing” during the regular flu season, to protect the elderly and other vulnerable people from the flu which kills 10-12,000 Americans ever year?
No, we’re not going to do that. With the seasonal flu we are not going crazy, hysterical, hoarding toilet paper, and isolating ourselves out of fear and panic, are we? Nope.
At least 15 million people have gotten the flu this season, including my wonderful mother, who is over 80 and now she’s all better, as are my brother and sister-in-law, and my 82-year-old uncle, who also all had the flu this season. And they’re all good now. Yep.
Try to “chill,” everyone. Be careful, wash your hands, don’t touch your face if you have handled doorknobs and other publicly accessible objects. But there’s no reason to be HYSTERICAL about it!!
And then there are the fascist governors and mayors giving orders banning gatherings of “more than 250 people” and all that. That includes the “liberal” northeast states of Massachusetts and Connecticut with their fascist governors. And what about New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state? Will Gov. Chris Sunununu impose the same kind of fascist orders on the people of New Hampshire? I loathe and detest fascists. Especially Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Half-Baker.
But all the school closings, events being shut down, concerts canceled. The St. Patrick’s Day parades canceled and the Boston Marathon postponed. Is all that really necessary? Let’s end everyday life because a virus with a less-than-1% mortality rate is going around. I don’t remember seeing this kind of hysteria and panic with the Ebola scare of 2014. Or at any time in all my life. And I’m in my mid-50s, so, I’m no “spring chicken.” I thought I’d seen everything, but apparently not.
The unprofessional, politics-motivated media should be ashamed of themselves for inciting panic.
Justina Pelletier was the teenage girl who has suffered from Mitochondrial Disease and after having been treated in Connecticut and at Tufts Medical Center for several years, she was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital at which time the doctors declared that her entire medical issues really weren’t medical but psychological.
Justina was then put into the care of psychiatrists against the parents’ wishes, placed into a psychiatric institution where she was abused, and her physical conditioned had deteriorated extensively. Additionally, at the beginning of this terrible ordeal, the hospital and doctors accused the Pelletiers of “child medical abuse” and called in CPS to take custody away from the parents.
The psychiatrists had also claimed Justina to be a “ward of the state” as aided and abetted by CPS, and used “ward of the state” as their excuse to legally engage in human experimentation for the hospital’s government-grant-funded research.
Most recently, when the Pelletiers’ lawsuit trial began in January, I wrote a summary of the whole case and reposted several posts I had written previously to give people an idea of what really went on in Justina’s and the Pelletiers’ ordeal that goes back 7 or 8 years now. I recommend that recent post which gives quite a lot of detail in the whole case.
As I wrote in the older posts, the psychiatrists have this ideology of “behavior modification,” to the point of being a religiously fanatical ideology, in which they are taking a medical patient and attempting to fit a square peg into a round hole as they ritualistically impose their personally indoctrinated psychological ideology onto an innocent human being.
Destroying her life physically and mentally doesn’t matter to the zealots. And they are zealots, believe me. I have met people like this.
Justina has had to be in a wheelchair, whereas prior to the hospital and CPS’s seizure of Justina she was able to stand and walk and do figure skating. She is now 21.
Jury Verdict at Pelletier Family Lawsuit Trial of Boston Children’s Hospital
So the jury deliberated for about 6 hours after about a 5-week trial, with many witnesses and documents presented as evidence, and the jury found the hospital as not negligent in Justina’s decline of health. This sheeple jury is all in on Establishment Medicine Worship, believe me.
When reading a Boston Globe article about the jury’s verdict (which I will not link to), it seems to be, with jurors’ statements after the trial, a totally different scenario than everything I have heard or read about over these past 6 years now. That included interviews of Mr. Pelletier describing the ordeal (as shown in my earlier post linked above), rallies held on Justina’s behalf that included people such as Rev. Patrick Mahoney pleading in person with then-Gov. Deval Patrick to get the Massachusetts CPS to free Justina and let her return to her family. It is as though the Pelletier family didn’t get adequate witnesses, and/or the jury just obediently bought everything said by the doctors and hospital witnesses.
In my view, the family should have sought criminal charges as soon as the “doctors” called in CPS and attempted to have Mr. Pelletier arrested for resisting in his daughter being kidnapped and taken away. Charges of kidnapping and child abduction, wrongful imprisonment, torture, false accusation, child endangerment, and child abuse for starters. But, it appears the family didn’t try to do that, or their attorneys advised them to go just for a financial lawsuit. Those doctors are criminals, in my view.
But what the jury is telling us is that we may not question the authority of government-approved doctors. The sheeple jury comes to their defense no matter how bad, no matter how corrupt and greedy, no matter how ignorant and incompetent the “doctors” are who committed such criminal acts against a teenage girl.
So here, in my view, is a rough translation of what the jury was really telling us in its defense of the doctors and the hospital and psychiatrists who screwed up a child’s life:
“We the sheeple of the jury think it’s okay for doctors and hospital staff to forcibly seize a child and take custody away from her parents. We must always trust the judgment of establishment medical professionals above whatever judgment parents might have.
“We also think it’s okay for CPS to put a medical patient into a juvenile detention center, a place for troubled teens even though she had no history of being a troubled teen. We think it’s okay for CPS to get a judge to impose a gag order on the parents and order them not to talk to the media about what the hospital is doing to their daughter. It’s for her own good!
“We must always trust the judgment of the government, CPS and government-approved doctors who know what’s best for us.
“They know what’s best for us regardless of the fact that medical errors are still the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. This includes side effects of prescription drugs, unnecessary surgeries, medication errors in hospitals, hospital-acquired infections, diagnostic errors, and hospitals failing to follow guidelines. According to the Journal of Patient Safety, 210,000 to 440,000 hospital patients die each year because of preventable harm at the hospital. So we must — MUST — trust the judgment of doctors, hospitals and hospital administrators. (After all, those government research grants are very important…)
Okay, thank you, sheeple jurors. And we should definitely trust the judgment of crackpot psychiatrists, who take a psychologically normal teenage girl but who has serious medical issues, and suddenly remove her from the treatments she was used to having (without considering the possible harm such sudden removal could cause) and instead say her problem is “all in her head,” and put her into a psychiatric ward (and, I assume, give her those poisonous psychiatric drugs!), all in the name of using her as a guinea pig for government-funded research, and all in the name of a “behavior modification” ideology.
Yes, we should trust the judgment of sick psychiatrists in USSA Amerika. Just look at this blog by a psychiatrist at the 2019 meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. Look at all the advertisements for antidepressants all over the premises, terrible drugs that in many cases make people more depressed or suicidal! And these psychiatrists at that convention seem more concerned about “wokeness,” about “social justice,” with their obsession with race, gender and LGBT, just like on the college campuses.
No, today’s psychiatrists are not rational people, in my view. They should NOT be trusted!
I can just imagine some poor psychiatric patient in the office who might have uttered an SJW-deemed faux pas. That professional practitioner will make sure to remind that patient of his error, no doubt about that. Today’s psychiatrists and psychologists will probably label such a patient with some disorder, like “Oppositional Defiant,” or “Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder,” or some such thing. (You see what I mean? They’re the nutsos, these psychiatric practitioner professional people! Yep.)
And while the MD psychiatrists are loony-tunes and brainwashed zombies, the PhD psychologists are just as bad. And speaking of the torture that Justina Pelletier endured after the “doctors” confiscated her from her family, we have other psychologists who have engaged in torture, in cahoots with deranged CIA thugs at Gitmo, and with the approval of the American Psychological Association. (Hmm, with “psychologists” like these, who needs monsters?)
So we have a biased jury who are brainwashed to obediently trust the judgment and authority of today’s government-approved “doctors,” government-approved hospitals and government-licensed psychiatrists, who thought that Justina Pelletier’s parents were the problem and were uncooperative. Meanwhile, the jury excused the doctor who wrote an email calling the family “evil.”
What is it with these politicians and candidates who promote mainly policies of aggression, interventionism, and government theft of private wealth and property? We had the Bushes starting wars of aggression against countries that didn’t attack us and invasive police-state policies, and Obama and Trump who continue the policies.
There do not seem to be any candidates, Democrat or Republican, who want to liberate the American people, make the government stop stealing from the people, and end the invasions, bombings, and occupations overseas that do nothing but provoke foreigners.
But now that I am reading more about the current bunch of morons running for President (to replace the incumbent moron), I am seeing how these people behave in their private lives or behind the scenes, and how some of them are abusive.
But not all of them treat others badly, of course. For instance, so far we haven’t heard about Pete Buttigieg being abusive or acting like a criminal, but we have heard that his campaign is filled with nutty loony-tunes, like their attempting to expose “microaggressions” within the campaign. (Some black campaign workers report being interrupted in conversation — Ooooh! — and being called the name of another staffer of the same race.) So, the nutsos try to go the opposite of being “abusive.”
But some of these politicians, especially those who advocate more interventions, more aggressions, more tax-thefts, and so on, seem to be treating others pretty badly.
A few days ago I asked if this Amy Klobuchar person might be the worst of the worst, because she combines the DC swampy interventionist foreign policy and warmongering with the leftist climate fanaticism and ObamaCare intrusions. She’s the worst of everything, a statist if there ever was one. And I wrote that she’s turning out to be a lot like Hillary, in those aforementioned ways. Here is what I wrote about that:
Robert Wenzel has this summary of Amy Klobuchar’s views and legislation she supports. She’s big on U.S. government interventionism around the world, loves the UN and NATO, supports NSA collection of private data without reasonable suspicion and votes in favor of FISA warrantless surveillance (i.e.. contempt for the 4th Amendment – Oh, that old thing?), wants the government to have authority over Facebook, Google and Amazon and other tech companies (anti-First Amendment, fascist), supports trade tariffs (against free trade and free markets), says regime change ops are on the table especially Venezuela, supports eco-fascism in climate change legislation and “Green New Deal” (i.e. crony Green Wheeling and Dealing). Thus, she combines the worst of warmongering, foreign interventionism, fascist anti-civil liberties and government spying on innocent people, with socialist tax-thefts in the name of irrational fanatical crusades. Very much like Hillary, in other words.
Yes, very much like Hillary Clinton, loving foreign interventionism and warmongering, and at the same time advocating far-left intrusions in the economy. The Democrats may nominate Klobuchar for President, and they may even have a brokered convention and insert Hillary to lose a second time.
According to Page Six from a 2016 article, Byrne’s book “claims she repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade.”
Page Six quotes from the book: “From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.”
And also from the Page Six article,
Byrne describes arriving for work one day in 1995 following a loud fight between the Clintons the night before.
The dust-up, he says, left a light blue vase “smashed to bits” and Bill sporting a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.”
And more recently in 2016, during the year that Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary who was supposed to “break the glass ceiling” but didn’t, Hillary and Bubba had a “screaming match only days before her election loss,” according to WND.
But now we are hearing that Amy Klobuchar is like Hillary not only in their statist policies but in other ways, mainly the bad temper and treating staff with abuse. For instance, according to Vanity Fair,
Klobuchar’s alleged temper was not unknown in Washington. Last year, The New York Timesnoted that, “On Capitol Hill, Ms. Klobuchar’s reputation is not all sweetness and light.” A March 2018 article in Politico described Klobuchar as among the “worst bosses in Congress,” with the highest office turnover rate in the Senate. But the new details reported by BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post, if true, are particularly damning. BuzzFeed reviewed e-mails, often sent between 1 and 4 in the morning, in which Klobuchar “regularly berated employees, often in all capital letters, over minor mistakes, misunderstandings, and misplaced commas. Klobuchar, in the e-mails, which were mostly sent over the past few years, referred to her staff’s work as ‘the worst in . . . years,’ and ‘the worst in my life.’”
…multiple sources alleged that Klobuchar’s mistreatment of office staff began more than a decade ago, and that in 2015, then Senate minority leader Harry Reid told her privately that she had to change her behavior.
So it seems that Klobuchar really is a lot like Hillary.
Now, what is it with these politicians? Do the more power hungry ones, like Amy and Hillary, just have psychopathic personalities?
If for some reason the Democrats make Amy Klawbutcher their nominee, when she loses to The Donald will we see if she goes crazy like the angry Hitlery?
And I don’t see why anyone would vote for Democrats or Republicans anymore, when those two statist parties are what caused the country’s mess in the first place. More and more government stealing from the people, draconian laws and police state with the drug war and failed attempts to address immigration and “terrorism” issues.
What we really need is someone who proposes to liberate the people of America, by dismantling all those terrible laws and policies and dismantling the national security state and foreign military bases, ending the drug war and stop stealing from the American people. (For example, Jacob Hornberger who is a Libertarian Party candidate for President. I’m sure he doesn’t lose his temper and throw things at people like those other politicians do.)
Justina Pelletier is now 21 years old. She was the teenager who suffered from Mitochondrial Disease, but during an unfortunate time when her regular doctor was unavailable she was then taken to a different hospital, Boston Children’s, in which the “doctors” decided that her problems were not medical, but psychological. The hospital falsely accused the Pelletiers of “medical child abuse” and took custody away from the parents and gave it to the dreaded Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF).
The Pelletiers are now suing Boston Children’s Hospital and the trial finally begins this week. The “doctors” crimes against the then-teen were 7 years ago now. The family is seeking “unspecified monetary damages,” according to Boston 25. In my view, they should have insisted that the doctors and hospital staff involved be criminally charged with kidnapping, false accusation, child abuse, and endangerment, among probably other charges. They are indeed criminals.
Here is a video of the Pelletiers being interviewed on a local Connecticut TV station last Summer with an update at that time.
Speaking of the incompetent and corrupt Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, there is an alarming case involving both that agency and area medical facilities.
This is yet another case of child abduction, pure and simple, and worse. You see, child snatchers and torture are rampant amongst various state “child protective” (sic) agencies.
15-year-old Justina Pelletier was being treated by doctors at Tufts Medical Center for Mitochondrial Disease, with initial symptoms mainly involving her colon. She was transferred a year ago to Boston Children’s Hospital against her parents’ wishes. The situation went from bad to worse, as the doctors at Children’s Hospital accused Justina’s parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, of “child medical abuse,” of “over-medicalizing” the child. Hospital officials than called in the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) who seized custody of the child away from the Pelletiers.
According to Lou Pelletier, who spoke to Glenn Beck (videos below) recently, doctors had initially performed exploratory colon surgery for possible “blockage.” The surgeon found “20 inches of cartilage wrapped around her colon and appendix.”
It appears that both Justina and her sister have congenital Mitochondrial Disease, but the sister’s issues haven’t been as severe as Justina’s.
After being moved to Boston Children’s Hospital Justina’s condition worsened and she is now in a wheelchair. When she was brought into Boston Children’s Hospital, doctors there had her see psychologists, one of whom asked her why she allowed the previous doctors to insert the tube in her colon.
With the very severe problems she was having, Justina needed her digestive system “flushed” but the Children’s Hospital doctors refused to do that, insisting that her problems were “psychological.” “It’s all in your head,” basically is what they told her and her parents. It isn’t Mitochondrial Disease that she has, but “Somatoform Disorder.”
So what we have here in crazy Amerika is this. Medical establishment zombies either diagnose a normal child who acts like a child as “abnormal,” or “hyperactive” and all those terms, and then they drug up those kids which causes further problems including actual medical, physical side effects. OR, they take a kid like Justina that they KNEW had a REAL medical condition as diagnosed by earlier doctors — a condition that was actually seen to exist via exploratory surgery — and they tell her that her problems are psychological.
So, instead of allowing the “flushing” treatment to continue, these doctors forced Justina to instead sit on the toilet for hours, according to her father, Lou Pelletier. Mr. Pelletier stated that the term the doctors used for how they were treating her was “behavior modification.”
You see, there are some doctors who are objective, and they take all the information of a particular case into account and act accordingly in the best interests of the patient.
And then there are doctors who believe in an ideology. In this case, the ideology is “behavior modification.” When doctors — or other kinds of providers — have an ideology, they are not objective, they are instead fixated on their ideology. In this case, as I see it, the doctors receive a new patient, and, regardless of what her symptoms are, the doctors attempt to get the patient to fit into the particular structure their ideology calls for. But it doesn’t fit in with reality, or with what the patient is actually experiencing. Then, it becomes a cult, in my opinion.
In fact, that these doctors and hospital administrators seized custody away from the Pelletiers and gave that illicitly-obtained custody over to the state’s Department of Children and Families, is relevant to this “behavior modification” ideological mistreatment of Justina. This is because the hospital’s research agenda involves children who are a “ward of the state.” According to the Blaze, Boston Children’s Hospital’s own Clinical Investigation Policy and Procedure Manuel states that “Children who are Wards of the state may be included in research that presents minimal risk…or greater than minimal risk with a prospect of direct benefit.” The Blaze notes that there is no assurance as to whether or not Justina is being used in research.
More recently, however, Justina was transferred from Boston Children’s Hospital to the Wayside Youth and Family Support Network facility in Framingham, Massachusetts. Wayside is a place for teens with behavioral problems and many come from “broken homes.” According to this local news article, “There are no doors to the rooms for the kids who live there, just curtains. Doors would allow students to barricade themselves in their rooms, said Dennis Miles, the campus residential director.”
You see, collectivists who may in fact be using others in experimentation don’t believe in the concept of privacy, as well as common sense. Actually, collectivists in general don’t believe in privacy, hence ObamaCare, NSA, TSA, FBI, etc.
The article also notes that “Pushbars for some of the doors have a 15-second delay to prevent students from running through or out of the school.
“Many doors need a security card to open, while others leading outside trigger an alarm.”
Hmmm. Now it’s beginning to sound more like a “correctional institute.” Is there a fence outside with barbed wires facing in?
Is there a Nurse Ratched there?
Mr. Pelletier describes Justina’s treatment by all these doctors as “torture.” He describes his daughter as now in a wheelchair, paralyzed below the waist, almost no muscle control above the waist, with her hairline and gumline receding, and says she seems to be malnourished.
So much for the psychologists’ “behavior modification” ideology.
Here is a video of Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, talking to Glenn Beck and describing this ordeal being perpetrated against their family by the vultures of the DCF and the medical establishment quacks:
Another aspect of this case which is just as troubling is that the DCF judge imposed a gag order on this case. The Pelletiers are not allowed to talk to the media about what’s being done to their child. However, since later last year, Mr. Pelletier has been talking to media, including Glenn Beck.
Now, what authority does any judge have to order the Pelletiers not to speak out about their ordeal? Some sort of Fascist Manifesto, perhaps?
Worse, because of his talking about what the vicious state and the psychopathic medical establishment have been inflicting on them, Mr. Pelletier has now been charged with “contempt of court.”
Here is the video of Pelletier telling Glenn Beck about the contempt charge:
In my view, these medical establishment people are not just medically incompetent, but criminally dangerous. If there were any justice at all, criminal charges of child endangerment, kidnapping and hostage taking, and physical abuse need to be pressed against those who were actually responsible for refusing to allow the Pelletiers to take Justina out of the hospital last year, and such charges pressed against those who then seized custody away from the Pelletiers. (The judge also needs to be impeached and charged with violating the Pelletiers’ First Amendment-protected rights of free speech.)
If ObamaCare continues as the “law of the land,” we can just multiply by many times all these fiascoes and crimes perpetrated by the State-medical establishment cult.
O’Meara compares to the the Salem witch trials the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists who recklessly ignored Justina’s medical diagnosis and treatment in favor of a subjective, non-scientifically verifiable psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.
The article highlights the DCF and psychiatrists’ obsessive zeal in continuing Justina’s psychiatric treatment despite their causing her condition to dangerously deteriorate. The writer points out some of the discrepancies between the DCF social workers’ court testimony and their prior discussions with Justina’s original medical doctor, and discrepancies between the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists guidelines for Justina’s case and those same doctors’ statements published in earlier research papers:
For example, the affidavit accused the Pelletiers of “obstructing her care,” and also reported that Boston Children’s Hospital does “not know where the parents picked up the current diagnosis and they are hard to disprove.”
The social worker failed to include in the affidavit that she had spoken directly to Tufts’ Dr. Korson, who had explained Justina’s mitochondrial diagnosis in great detail. The Juvenile Court judge ruled in favor of Boston Children’s Hospital and Justina became a ward of the state, severely restricting the Pelletiers’ access to their daughter.
In fact, the February 2013 “guidelines” drafted by Boston Children’s Hospital in regard to Justina’s case included: “set strict limitations on medical discussions with the family and eliminate interaction with providers outside our hospital” such as Dr. Korson. Unbelievably, the family and the treating physician were to be excluded from any conversation about the health and well-being of the 15-year-old captive.
The “guidelines” are a direct contradiction to what the psychiatric “team” muttered in published psychiatric papers. For instance, Dr. Simona Bujoreanu, Assistant in Psychology, and Dr. David DeMaso, psychiatrist-in-chief, both of Boston Children’s Hospital, co-authored an article entitled “Enhancing Working Relationship between Parents and Surgeons.”
In describing the treatment modality, DeMaso and Bujoreanu explain:
“The working relationship between parents and surgeons is fundamental in providing excellent health care to children and adolescents. The breakdown of this working relationship has a significant potential for detrimental effects on individual well-being and adverse systemic outcomes….”
So not only do these so-called medical practitioners forcibly take over the case of a child who is being treated for Mitochondrial Disease, which had indeed been medically and scientifically verified through exploratory surgery, so the “doctors” can implement their ideology of behavior modification. But these schnooks are apparently doing what they can to cover up their criminally negligent treatment of an innocent child.
I’m beginning to believe that not only is this “behavior modification” some sort of indoctrinated ideology being practiced by these “doctors,” but with their outright zeal in this case it gives the feeling of bordering on a kind of religious zealotry.
Apparently Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier is ready to file a “writ of habeas corpus in Massachusetts Supreme Court for ‘wrongful imprisonment’,” according to ABC News. And who can blame him?
The Pelletiers really need to press a multitude of criminal charges against the Children’s Hospital doctors as well as the DCF social workers who have been complicit in causing Justina’s condition to deteriorate as it has.
The aforementioned Citizens Commission on Human Rights article concludes:
Additionally, under the United Nation’s 2013 Report by the Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Pelletiers certainly could claim Justina’s human rights have been violated: “Medical care that causes severe suffering for no justifiable reason can be considered cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and if there is State involvement and specific intent, it is torture.”
Surely, when a child’s life is at stake, even the governing bodies overseeing those institutions that claim to represent the best interests of children, would demand proof of the medical diagnosis. Or is it possible that Massachusetts has so easily forgotten the dreadful prosecutions of Salem, born from rumor, speculation and belief?
I have written quite a few times about Justina Pelletier the teenager who suffers from Mitochondrial Disease but who was taken off her treatment by doctors more loyal to their “behavior modification” ideology than to their oath to “Do no harm.” I mentioned her case most recently in this article.
As far as I know, Justina and her family are suing Boston Children’s hospital, and the lawsuit is still pending.
But I found this article from January from a Mitochondrial Disease News website, about parents who face false charges of “medical child abuse” by “doctors” and hospitals. The article includes references to Justina Pelletier, whose parents were falsely charged with such. The article states, “But in recent years, the U.S. mitochondrial disease community has been hit with hundreds of other false accusations of medical child abuse. MaryBeth Hollinger of MitoAction says the problem is getting worse.”
In many cases, “doctors” aren’t able to immediately find a cause for a patient’s symptoms, and already jump to the conclusion that “it’s all in her head,” i.e. the cause is psychological, to them. And many times, the doctors rush to insist that the young patient be kept in their psychiatric ward as an in-patient, to do God-knows-what, but especially to give them those goddamn psychiatric drugs. The article doesn’t say that, but that’s been my conclusion. So in my view, these damn doctors are obsessed with drugging up their patients. It’s like a religion to them, it seems to me. And also, in many cases the Children’s Hospitals or other hospitals are government-funded research hospitals, as was the case with Justina Pelletier. The doctors use the patient as a guinea pig to give these horrible drugs to and to experiment on.
The article points out, “Hollinger spoke of a general lack of awareness, noting that ‘most doctors were never taught anything about mitochondrial disease.’ Because the disease involves energy production, it varies greatly from one person to the next.”
And the article gives good advice to parents, which I back 1,000%:
Hollinger advised parents to watch what they say around doctors and nurses, and to think twice before posting photos of their children on Facebook or Twitter.
“You have to really be careful about what you share, and how it could impact your child down the line,” she said. “I would definitely say no photos. What law enforcement does is use social media to see if you are guilty or not. It is the most important aspect of their investigation. They consider social media your crime scene. Any picture that could embarrass your child at less than 18 years old is considered abusive.”
A wacko intruded on Hanukkah candle lighting services at a rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, New York and attacked 5 people, stabbing them with a knife. The attacker attempted to get away in his Nissan Sentra but he was stopped and arrested by police.
New York has had several incidents of anti-Jewish attacks in recent years. What is with these people? As the late Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?”
There are many issues here to address, and I have very little time with which to address them. But one issue is, was it really antisemitism that was the main contributor to the attacker’s attack? Apparently, the 37-year-old synagogue attacker “has a long history of mental illness and hospitalizations. He has no history of like violent acts and no convictions for any crime,” according to his family.
You see, one problem in our society now is that if someone has some emotional issues, or any kind of psychological or behavioral issues, the “doctors,” hospitals and schools immediately put the person on terrible psychiatric drugs, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, SSRI antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft and Luvox, and anti-ADHD and other drugs to “help” the person such as someone who is labeled by practitioners as “autistic,” etc. I am not saying that this attacker has been taking any of those drugs, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
As I wrote previously regarding the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and discussed in this post, those psychiatric drugs have a history of causing someone’s depression to get worse, causing suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and contributing to a person’s judgment that affects one’s ability to empathize with others as well as one’s ability to control aggressive impulses. Dr. Peter Breggin has written and spoken about these issues extensively and testified before Congressional committees on these issues.
And besides this week’s New York synagogue stabbing attack, following that there was another church shooting in Texas. Two people had been killed, but almost immediately the shooter was killed by armed citizens who shot back.
These attacks have been happening more in recent years, and many of the attackers had been taking strong psychiatric drugs. So, as I had mentioned previously, those past attackers include Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, the South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof, the Santa Barbara college shooter Elliot Rodger, the Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, the Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, and the Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had all been taking those damn psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.
I stopped trying to find out if any of the more recent mass killers had been taking those psychiatric drugs. This older article and this one list several more earlier examples of mass killers who had been taking psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.
The reason why many people don’t know about those aspects of recent mass killings is that mainstream news outlets get a lot of their advertising revenues from the pharmaceutical companies. With these issues and other issues such as the nationwide blackout on the truth about the FBI and CIA’s illegally going after the Trump campaign and administration, we have seen just how dishonest and corrupt the mainstream news media really are. They are a disgrace.
So anyway, rather than frothing at the mouth over “hate” in society, perhaps the New York governor Andrew Cuomo ought to discuss why so many recent mass killers had been shown to be taking psychiatric drugs which no doubt have been contributing to their judgments and affecting their sense of empathy and conscience (or lack thereof).
Now, that’s the first issue involved here. Another issue is what is going on with the “black community” that is causing so much hate directed toward Jews? Again, obviously not all black people hate Jews. And not all the anti-Jewish attacks in New York had been committed by black people, but that has been common now. Robert Wenzel addressed this issue, and points out the possible influence that the “Nation of Islam” might have on certain communities, and particularly on the college campuses. The “Nation of Islam” is the organization led by Louis Farrakhan, a popular but anti-Jewish “minister.”
And finally, these incidents, including the anti-Jewish attacks in New York and elsewhere, show that the short-sighted, emotion-driven calls for more gun control are counter-productive. Will we see calls for “knife control” now? They have had that in the land of idiocy, England, for a while now.
Three primary goals drive the Washington-based human-rights group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):
Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).
Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control”.
Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.
JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.
Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokespeople actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman
As JPFO expanded its research into gun laws and the results of their enactments, it became blatantly obvious that so-called “gun control” had played a fundamental role in all the major genocides of the 20 th Century … not just the Holocaust. See: The Genocide Chart
So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.
Based on this insight, JPFO broke new ground with the award-winning documentary Innocents Betrayed. In this powerful film, viewers learn the dirty secret of “gun control”: how governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then murdered them ruthlessly. Fifty eight minutes of hard-hitting facts that leave viewers dazed.
So that is what they have to say about that. And I agree with them 1,000%.
And like most of the people on the Left, New York Gov. Cuomo is also big on gun control. He, along with Dianne Feinstein, Cory Schnooker and the rest of them want to disarm innocent people and make them defenseless to the criminal aggression of others.
And I wonder if Cuomo is now going to suggest “knife control.” Is he also going to suggest “hate control” such as with more censorship of the Internet and other places of speech and expression?
The swamp creatures who attach themselves like barnacles to the Washington spigot cannot tolerate anyone overly critical of the D.C. swamp, and certainly not someone who promises to “Drain the Swamp.” So, this is why the elite establishment have been on a fanatical crusade to get rid of Donald Trump, any which way they can (even though he is one of them as far as I’m concerned).
And this involves just making things up, using the unconstitutional FISA spying apparatus, going after Trump’s tax records without any specific wrongdoing to suspect him of, and using a routine phone call with which to impeach him. The swamp creatures will do these things to anyone now in the future who goes against their beloved State.
So now, the Soviet show trial in the Kangaroo Kongress is continuing, with “legal experts” appearing in the House Judiciary Committee. We heard from propagandists otherwise known as “law professors” a.k.a. la-la professors who agree with the mantra repeated over and over and over that Trump violated some law or some constitutional article in his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
With today’s political correctness newspeak and government police and FBI doing whatever criminal act they want, “law” means whatever any government official says it means at any particular time.
Propagandists like the la-la professors Pamela Karlan and Noah Feldman slobberingly repeated the mantra of “Trump-phone-call-treason-guilty-GUILTY!!” over and over and over like the government groupies of the mainstream media so that more people will believe the lies.
We hear propaganda more and more every day, it seems. Not just with “Trump-Russia-Collusions” and now “Trump-Ukraine-Blackmail,” but in other crusades such as the vaccine crusade and the climate change crusade. “That’s been debunked,” and “the science is settled,” and all that crap. But I digress.
So, either those “professors” know that Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president was legal based on the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act and its amendments and are merely acting as government propagandists, or they don’t know the law, in which case they are ignoramuses.
Anyway, the law on foreign aid is irrelevant, because the U.S. government and its Presidents have not been following it. As James Bovard wrote recently, foreign aid makes corrupt countries more corrupt.
So “Professor” Karlan, the self-described “snarky, bisexual Jewish woman” who spoke exploitatively of Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron, has squandered thousands of dollars of her own money on political campaigns of the lying fraudsters Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so, should we really trust Snarky’s judgment as far as what is legal or constitutional and what isn’t?
Another “constitutional expert” at the impeachment hearing was la-la professor Noah Feldman, a Harvard professor (that doesn’t really mean anything anymore). So Marty Feldman, I mean, Noah Feldman, who is now on record as acting in cahoots with Mark Zuckerberg to censor conservatives and Trump supporters from Fakebook, was an adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, a CIA-associated group. So, this is yet another “liberal” combined with being associated with the CIA, just like John Brennan. Hooray!
You’ve probably heard about this on radio ditto-head shows, but Feldman has written favorably about Islamic Sharia law, including in his 2008 Council on Foreign Relations-associated book, The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State. In an op-ed, he wrote, “Today, when we invoke the harsh punishments prescribed by Shariah for a handful of offenses, we rarely acknowledge the high standards of proof necessary for their implementation.” Huh? (What planet is this guy on?)
In fact, another witness at this week’s kangaroo impeachment show trial, Professor Jonathan Turley, has repeatedly written extensive criticisms of the Islamic punishments of Sharia law in Saudi Arabia, Iran and elsewhere. What is wrong with this Feldman guy?
But guess what? House Speaker Pelosi is now admitting that this whole impeachment show trial is not about a phone call or about Ukraine, but about Russia. They are still obsessed with falsely imprisoning Trump based on cahooting with Russia, which Trump was totally exonerated of by the two-year Mueller investigation.
Nancy says, “All roads lead to Putin.” And that’s that.
It is ironic that Nancy Pelosi is lecturing reporter James Rosen about the Constitution, given her fellow Democrat Barack Obama’s going after Rosen just like all the other journalists Obama tyrannized during his regime. So, the swamp creatures go after those who try to expose their slimy disgusting rottenness, I think.
Does Pelosi really believe this Russia crap? She and her swamp creature fellows just want to exact revenge on Trump for not only daring to promise to “Drain the Swamp,” but for actually winning the 2016 election and beating Hillary Rotten Clinton, the one who “rightfully deserves to be the first woman President,” etc., etc., etc.
And much of this is about the Supreme Court as well. The abortion fanatics see that as their protector, protecting their “rite of passage” that women must exercise (the rite of killing their offspring, that is). And they’re getting especially worried now, because it seems that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in a race to the end with Jimmy Carter. (Maybe those two can enter the Howie Carr Death Pool?)
Anyway, I don’t think I’ve seen a group of people, in Congress, media, Hollywood or the univer$ities and law $chools, as well as the Orwellian and Soviet-like culture in the loony tech world, who are soooo deranged, bananas and off their rockers about Trump and anyone who questions or speaks out against the statist quo and the loony-tunes PC garbage today. The crusaders are totally unhinged now.
And what exactly is causing all this craziness and corruption in Amerika? Government-controlled education? Centralization of power? I have no idea.
Or maybe it’s the birth control pill, that has recently and somewhat recently been found to shrink women’s brains and cause hormonal imbalance, problems with sex drive, mood and aggression. Not only The Pill, but many various pharmaceutical drugs that are really causing a lot of people to act in the bizarre ways we have been seeing. Xanax, Adderall, Ritalin, Zoloft, Luvox, Prozac, statin drugs, and all the rest.
Drugs, processed foods, vaccine adjuvants, not to mention the screen-staring and zombie texting obsessions that many people have now. People are going nuts now.
And also, the identity politics-obsessed reading lists that are being forced on high school students. What a sick, perverted society we are living in now. It’s an “Epstein World” now, unfortunately. And I understand why the disinterest in teaching cursive writing in the schools, but many young people now don’t know something as basic as how to sign their own names. Why aren’t you parents out there teaching your own kids those things? No wonder we have “law professors” who are mainly just ignorant clowns who are looked upon as the greatest thing since wholesome sliced bread, or are just brainwashed shills for the State.
Jon Rappoport has two terrific articles on his blog. In the first one, A whole branch of science turns out to be fake, he notes the fraud and lack of science behind psychiatric diagnoses. The pharmaceutical industry is excited when the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is published, in which the establishment shrinks invent new disorders which will multiply the numbers of diagnoses every year, thus increase even more the prescribing of poisonous psychiatric drugs to profit from.
The second article, Fake science in the Oklahoma Bombing, covers the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. With fake science and government cover-ups, the government’s conspiracy theory of “anti-government militia blowing up the building with a Ryder truck” is believed by the sheeple. He writes toward the end of the article, “If the federal government can egregiously lie about an event as huge as the Oklahoma Bombing, using fake science as a cover—what wouldn’t they lie about?”
It is usually informative to hear Sean Hannity and others on the radio with the other side of the story that the mainstream media won’t give us, especially in the Democrats’ and national security state’s crusade to get rid of Donald Trump. But these same talk radio sheeple love the national security state, They love police and military, and armed and uniformed goons.They are authoritarians and believe in “America First” and not Freedom First, in my view. So if the political parties were in the reverse, I don’t believe they would be telling us about FISA abuses and so forth. And the conservatives, by the way, LOVE the government schools.
Anyway, it looks like the Democrats are going to “impeach” Donald Trump, and for made-up things promoted by all the invited guests, those career government parasites at the hearings. But the Democrats will not be impeaching Trump for his continuing to authorize drone strikes that do nothing but kill innocent civilians overseas or his criminally keeping Gitmo open, etc. Nope. Democrats don’t care about those things.
The Democrats don’t care about civil liberties or due process, as we have seen from their Mueller fiasco and this impeachment farce. And they don’t care about freedom of speech either. No, they care about someone saying or tweeting rude or obnoxious things, and they are obsessed with abortion.
And the apparatchiks of the national security state want to get rid of Trump because he refuses to be their puppet (or he’s trying not to be).
And they all know that whoever their nominee is in 2020, s/he will not beat The Donald. In theory, it would be easier to beat Mike Pence, but the Democrats’ and spooks’ 3-year-long crusade of political harassment and abusing the legal and legislative process will fail anyway.
What’s really disappointing on a daily basis is hearing all these “news” deliverers and “analysts” in the media, their repeating what the impeachment hearing witnesses are saying, that Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President was a “quid pro quo,” despite the law requiring Trump to make sure corruption in a foreign aid recipient country is being addressed before receiving the aid, and despite the corruption with Joe Biden and Junior Biden.
The “news” media continuously call the stuff about the Bidens, Ukraine and the 2016 election “debunked conspiracy theories” like those media buffoons are programmed robots. So many people in the media do not think or act independently, they do little or no actual investigative research, and/or are just plain dumb people. Although there are some who aren’t so dumb, and they have seen plenty of actual information that refutes the official narrative, but they obediently and dishonestly carry on the Hate-Trump Crusade.
I think that most of those in the media repeating the official narrative are doing so out of laziness, obedience to authority, and because they have been brainwashed by their upbringings and government schooling to take the word of officials with a (D) after their name.
And I am not a Trump supporter as regular readers (if any still exist) know. If you are disillusioned with Democrats now but don’t like the Rethuglicans, you might consider supporting Jacob Hornberger in 2020. Just thought I’d throw that in there.
Now, what else has been in the news? The American Psychological Association style guide now endorses or requires using “they” as a replacement for he, him, she, her, etc., as a singular pronoun, according to the College Fix, even though “they” is a plural pronoun. The reason for this idiocy is to be more “inclusive” and “affirming,” and for authors to “avoid perpetuating prejudicial beliefs or demeaning attitudes in their writing.”
Harvard University was one of the first places of higher “education” to implement these changes, regardless of the likelihood that an “educational” institution’s use of incorrect grammar will cause such writers or speakers to leave a less literate impression on others. So, not good for job-seekers, in my view.
Maybe this is a part of the larger contributor to why so many people in the “news” media are themselves illiterate and why they believe everything that government bureaucrats tell them, no?
You see, there really are people who are so brainwashed now that they believe using “he” or “she” in writing is “demeaning” or “non-inclusive.” Most of the people who believe those things are the same kinds of people as described above, Democrats, who also don’t believe in freedom of speech and due process. And I thought Rethugs were bad.
Using “they” as a singular pronoun is bad because it is incorrect grammar. If people really are offended by it, then they, including those members of the American Psychological Association, need some kind of counseling. Talk about extremely insecure, neurotic sheeple! (And the American Psychiatric Association as well! They’re sick dudes, in my view.)
Speaking of the formerly first-rate Harvard, another article by the College Fix tells us about Harvard hosting “Anal Sex 101” and “Oral Sex 101” workshops.
This sex obsession and perversion in our society is another contributor to the decline in literacy and thinking abilities in Harvard professors and their students, and among people in the “news” media, and escapees from the government schools.
According the the College Fix, “On-campus sponsors include Queer Students and Allies, Harvard College Women’s Center, Office of BGLTQ Student Life, Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, Harvard College Reproductive Justice Action and several other campus groups.”
“Reproductive Justice Action”? What is “reproductive justice”? (Making sure that Roe v Wade isn’t overturned? Killing their offspring as a “rite of passage” is these deranged SJW’s main purpose in life!)
The article quotes Mary Eberstadt, author of Primal Screams: How the Sexual Revolution Created Identity Politics: “It’s especially ironic that Sex Week gets Harvard’s imprimatur even as some of the men of #MeToo are appearing in courts. Sex Week promotes the same deformed view of the human person that led such men to harassment and assault in the first place: one dominated by pornographic narratives according to which human beings are always and everywhere available for any sexual permutation, no matter how problematic to their psyches or inimical to their health.”
We live in a perverted, sick society now. Can we reverse this? This is giving me a headache, quite frankly.
What else is in the news? Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to Salvation Army and other Christian-oriented charities. Obviously because of the loud screaming by the LGBT activists, who call the restaurant’s products “hate chicken.”
I think that “social justice” activists have decided to redefine the word “hate,” just as they are mangling singular and plural pronouns. And they have no clue as to what “quid pro quo” really means!
I think that many of the LGBT activists are brainwashed. There’s no other explanation why they act this way. The same goes for the people in CONgress wasting time and money on a farce impeachment. They are brainwashed apparatchiks. Thanks to government schools.
And talk about totalitarian-minded fascists, these activists. Now we have LGBT activists demanding that others accept and “affirm” their ways of life! Others must accept the lunacy of transgender or multi-genders, or else the activists will make sure you get fired from your job, that you are deplatformed, that you are dropped from your credit card company, etc. They mean business, these activists.
Worse, the government schools are now requiring that little kids become activists for the government teachers and bureaucrats’ social causes, including the kooky ones noted above. According to Town Hall, 3rd graders will learn “how we can be agents of communal, social, political, and environmental change.” But don’t learn math, because that’s racist.
Abolishing government schools is really the only answer to all this crap, from the political ills to the social ills. That means no more local school committees, no more local superintendents of schools, no more crazy government-imposed curricula. Yes, this privatization and de-monopolization of education is necessary.
Unfortunately, the conservatives love government schools as a means to force their own repressive and authoritarian social agenda down the throats of kids. And unless the conservatives change their tune in their sheepish acceptance of government schools, then I think the leftists really will win.
