Many conservatives, Republicans and libertarians are saying that we had better vote for Donald Trump or the whole country is going to be a third-world hell-hole, and many liberals, Democrats and progressives are saying that we had better vote for Joe Biden or the whole place will be ruled by white supremacists, racists, nazis, etc.
Well, they’re all wrong, and I wrote this post in February 2014 that I will repost today, and thought you might find it of interest. (The one video included is no longer there, and there might be one or two links that don’t work.)
February 2, 2014
Some people seem to think that I’m a real drag when it comes to my criticisms of society, America’s decline and elections. There are those who look forward to the next election so they can go to the polls really believing they will make a difference.
Uh-uh. You’re just wasting your time. And if you want to continue living in a fantasy world, that’s up to you.
Liberty activist Judy Morris has this blog post titled, “Voting Doesn’t Matter Because All Elections Are Controlled by R and D Big Money, Big Banksters, Big Corporations and Big Defense Contractors.” And she goes on explaining just how these elections don’t matter, how democracy is a majority voting to make use of the State’s police powers to take other people’s stuff, how the two major parties in control shut out challengers to the status quo, and how the corporations and fat cats are really buying the elections. But then she goes on to make suggestions on changing campaign funding laws and encouraging support for third parties. So she’s being very realistic until the very last three or four paragraphs, which just didn’t make sense to me.
I especially liked Ms. Morris’s comparing Dinesh D’Souza to the billionaires the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson, George Soros et al. D’Souza has recently been attacked by the fascist Obama DOJ for campaign finance violations because of a mere amount of $20,000. Yet, the Kochs and Adelson and their hack organizations threw tens of millions of dollars down the drain to fund the loser, Willard Romney. Obviously, the only reason Obama’s corrupt and criminal DOJ is going after D’Souza is because of D’Souza’s film 2016 on Obama.
By law, an individual can only contribute $2,500 to a candidate. Even if ordinary folks could afford a $2,500 campaign contribution to a candidate, which they can’t, the lion’s share of political money comes from PAC’s, special interests, banksters, defense contractors etc. and these are the folks who own and control the RNC and DNC machines.
While the Huffington Post reported that the 2012 presidential election cost $2 billion,Politico reported that the cost of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections was $6 billion, here. Open Secrets, an organization that specifically tracks political money, also reported that the 2012 presidential and congressional elections cost $6 billion, here.
It’s clearly evident that the rich and powerful hijacked and now own our election system. The RNC and DNC machines are nothing but money laundering machines for special interests.
If an individual voter can only contribute a maximum of $2,500 to a candidate and if Denesh D’Souza is being prosecuted for his role in a puny $20,000 campaign finance fiasco, how is it that the Koch Brothers can legally pony up a staggering $400 million and casino magnet Adelson can pony up $100 million to influence election outcomes?
Most recently, this corporate financial influence in elections can be seen in the ObamaCare and anti-gun rights propaganda being pushed by the
Soviet NFL for the upcoming Super Bowl. Here is Alex Jones on that:
But for elections, one of Judy Morris’s solutions is to “ban all fund raising by anybody except the candidates and they should only be allowed to raise money from individual voters.” But all that has some First Amendment problems, because really individuals and groups have a right to spend or waste their money on whatever they want.
But Ms. Morris’s suggestion to vote for third parties is not practical, as those parties or candidates who are anti-State and pro-freedom do not seem to get the attention they deserve or are silenced by the ones in control of the process. The ones in control are those members of the U.S. CONgress and all their minions all across America who love power and are NOT going to give it up voluntarily. They will not vote to loosen election laws to make life easier for third parties or anti-Establishment candidates.
And the Rulers in control, such as “Speaker” Boehner and Mitch McConjob and others will not vote or support policies which advance freedom. Sooner or later, people are really going to have to accept the truth of the matter.
And regarding the idea of using elections to reverse the trend of ever-growing government intrusiveness and criminality, I wrote in my March, 2010 article, November, 2010: More Rearranging of Deck Chairs (with a follow up just recently here),
When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, the “conservative” president not only didn’t cut entire cabinet-level departments as promised, he added three new cabinet-level departments. After cutting taxes, a year later Reagan signed what was then to be America’s biggest tax increase. Reagan also signed one deficit-laden budget after another, and during Reagan’s presidency, the National Debt skyrocketed along with all the regulations and bureaucracy he promised to cut.
Following the 1994 “Republican Revolution,” the federal government continued to grow out of control, and, after 2000, the younger President George W. Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” – i.e. more socialist redistribution of wealth schemes – and expanding the military industrial complex only fed Leviathan much more.
Then, in November of 2010, mainly because of the passage of ObamaCare the voters elected many new Republicans to Congress. Some of the candidates pledged to repeal the Affordable (sic) Care Act, a.k.a. ObamaCare.
Well, it’s 2014 now, and have they repealed ObamaCare?
However, we do have a proposal now by three U.S. senators to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare.
Ooooh, another Republican plan to replace socialism and fascism with fascism and socialism.
Senators Richard Burr, Orrin Hatch and Tom Coburn present several aspects of their own version of government-controlled medical care. But it is not a free market health care plan. It just changes a few aspects to make it a little less intrusive, a little less socialist on the surface but the government still controls things by telling individuals and businesses what they may or may not do.
You see, with the unrealistic conservatives, Republicans and “libertarians,” political compromise is the solution. Not the solution to better medical care, just the solution to help politicians get themselves reelected. Sadly, the naive and the gullible just can’t seem able to get that.
So, as far as this new Republican plan to replace ObamaCare with the same thing but with the deck chairs rearranged, many conservative and Republican sheeple are all for it. For example, the clueless conservatives of the New York Post editorial board conclude, “GOP candidates heading into their campaigns this fall now have a genuine alternative that would offer universal coverage.”
“Universal coverage”? Is that even possible? Who the hell but socialists and communists talks about “universal coverage”? (Is there even universal coverage in Cuba? In Venezuela? England? Was there in the old Soviet Union?)
Avik Roy of Forbes says this is the “most credible plan yet,” when no, it is NOT the “most credible plan.” The most credible plan is to get the government out of medical care completely! Roy also says that this new Republican plan raises taxes, and “that’s a good thing.” Doh!
And there’s a congressman from Georgia who is running for the U.S. Senate, and he says that his background as a physician gives him credibility in going on to help to repeal ObamaCare. Yeah, that attitude sure helped with Sen. Bill Frist, MD. And what has Rand Paul, MD done? Nuttin’!
Laurence Vance explains the Republicans’ history of support for government-controlled medical care. Vance concludes by noting that the real constitutional alternative to government health care is medical freedom. And that’s it.
And Jacob Hornberger explains even more specifically what a genuine free market in medical care would be. That means repealing ALL the socialist and fascist governmental intrusions into the lives of the people. (And such repeals would apply in every other area in which these greedy, corrupt government bureaucrats intrude themselves. Everything!)
But worse, and more depressing is that this new RepublicanCare is dependent on 2014 elections, or more likely dependent on 2016 elections. By that time, America will already be a full third world country. Get rid of damn ObamaCare NOW, for crying out loud!
So, as we saw from the 2010 elections, elections don’t matter. And legislation doesn’t matter. It’s all a scam.
Hmmm. By the way, let’s take a look at the aforementioned U.S. Senators Burr, Hatch and Coburn campaign finances for 2009-2014 as given by OpenSecrets.org:

Not that any of that means anything. So people need to face it that these elections really are meaningless.
As Murray Rothbard observed,
…first, left-liberals, in power, make a Great Leap Forward toward collectivism; then, when, in the course of the political cycle, four or eight years later, conservatives come to power, they of course are horrified at the very idea of repealing anything; they simply slow down the rate of growth of statism, consolidating the previous gains of the Left, and providing a bit of R&R for the next liberal Great Leap Forward….
And these elections are meaningless because when we can dig up one or two “good” people who mean well, when they get in there to “repeal” stuff, they will not really repeal anything. They get addicted to the power that such governmental authority gives them. They now get to tell people what to do, and have their orders enforced by armed goons, and they love it. Better than drugs.
I hope that soon people will really see what a sham central planning and federalism are. The whole scheme is really a criminal scheme in which some people use the armed power of the State to take from others, and that’s it! And it is an apparatus with which the psychopaths amongst us satisfy their cravings for power and control over others. If you want to believe otherwise, then I guess you prefer to be gullible.
Ron Paul asks, Is the Texas COVID “spike” fake news?
[Texas Gov. Greg] Abbott may have based his executive order on inaccurate information about a “rise” in Covid cases due to the Texas State Department of Health Services changing the definition of what constitutes a “Covid case.”
Thanks goes to Collin County Judge Chris Hill for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a move in mid-May to redefine what was a “Covid” case to open the door to a massive increase – all to match the mainstream media line that a “second wave” was on the way.
In a Commissioners Court hearing for Collin County on May 18th, it was revealed that while previously the determination of a Covid “case” was a confirmed test result, the definition was suddenly changed to count “probable” cases as “cases.” At the same time, the threshold for determining “probable” was lowered to a ridiculous level.
As Judge Hill said at that May 18th meeting, “If you have a subjective fever and you have a headache and you live in Collin County, you now meet the qualifications to be a probable COVID patient. It is remarkable how low the standard is now.”
Even worse, once a “probable” case was determined based on possibly unrelated subjective criteria, up to 15 people in possible contact with that “probable” case were also listed as “probable cases.” And “probable cases” were considered cases.
Repeat that farce across Texas and is it any wonder there was a “spike” in “cases”?
Also, Governor Abbott’s claim that hospitals were being over-run by Covid patients was refuted by the Houston hospital directors themselves, who said they were nowhere near actual capacity and in fact were about the same level as they were last year.
And here Ron Paul discusses the situation with Daniel McAdams. On the video’s YouTube page, they write:
The daily death count has morphed into the daily “new case” count, as 100,000 tests a day have exploded into 700,000 tests. Is it a wonder cases are increasing? But what they don’t dare mention is that deaths and even the death rate continue to decline. In fact the CDC warns that Covid is at the stage where it cannot even be classified an epidemic due to declining deaths. Still, more masks are required and petty dictators all around are calling for a return to lockdown. Can the truth ever be heard above all the lies?
Ryan McMaken: The Constitution failed.
Wesley Smith: Doctors Killed Quadriplegic Man With Coronavirus Because They Said He Had No “Quality of Life”. (A sign of things to come under “single payer,” “universal health care,” etc.?)
Jacob Hornberger: Weak Libertarian Solutions to America’s Healthcare Crisis
And Thomas DiLorenzo: Why another book on Lincoln?
Jon Rappoport has a post on how the deaths are not by COVID, but by the State killing old people. He goes into detail how the bureaucrats and their medical cahooters are killing our elders.
David Stockman shows how the “increase” in COVID numbers or the alleged “second wave” is a fraud, and is mainly to do with “Orange Man Bad.”
Robert Wenzel posts on the “nut job power freak governors” who ordered nursing homes to have to admit coronavirus patients, knowing that the elderly are the group most vulnerable to succumbing to the coronavirus COVID-19. New York and the criminal Cuomo aren’t the only states murdering elderly people in nursing homes. Wenzel shows a tweet by Jack Posobiec who states that his team has found that New York, New Joisey, Michigan, California, and Pennsylvania all ordered nursing homes to have to admit coronavirus patients.
And Wenzel has another post regarding the mayor of Ocala, Florida who says he will not enforce the state’s “phase one” of lifting sanctions on businesspeople and so on. (The governors, including Massachusetts governor Charlie Half-Baker and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sunununu, are lifting their sanctions by “phases,” in true Soviet, central planning style. Those two idiots, and Florida Gov. Ron Duh Santis, are all Rethuglicans, not Dumocrats. However, I’m not sure about Sunununu but I KNOW that Charlie Half-Baker HATES Donald Trump, and I think his Trump-hate is one of his main motivations of his lockdown crap, another one being Baker wants that stimulus money! But Ron Duh Santis is a Trump supporter, so the main reason I can see for his playing along with this fascist unconstitutional crapola is because he is just really DUMB, the more accurate phrase for him being “Useful Idiot,” in service to the ones with their society-destroying agenda.)
Speaking of that, Jon Rappoport has this terrific article on the “Chinese system coming to America.” It’s a plannedemic, for a new Soviet Amerika. (I know, “Chinese,” “Soviet,” not that much difference.)
And Dr. Mercola has an article on the well-known hazards of coronavirus vaccines. The greedy, Big Pharma agenda has been way out in the open now for all to see.
These videos of two medical doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in California, debunking Dr. Fauci et al. propaganda, were taken down by YouTube, even though they reached over 5 million views. YouTube is another propaganda branch of the U.S. government, no doubt about it.
According to Paul Joseph Watson,
In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”
Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.
“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?’” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”
The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”
I guess propaganda is a “Term of Service,” and truth is not.
But apparently BitChute has the videos, and here they are:
And Part 2:
James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has a video including some funeral home directors in New York, part 1 of an investigation into fraud, waste and corruption in this ongoing COVID fiasco. The funeral directors doubt the legitimacy of alleged deaths attributed to the pandemic.
And here is a New York City nurse who is speaking on behalf of a whistleblower, another nurse who is afraid of possibly being fired or punished for speaking out. The nurse says that NYC hospitals are killing their COVID patients (or those presumed to be suffering from COVID), and she’s using the word “murder,” “murder via protocol.”
Finally, here is an article on Big League Politics about New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo forcing nursing homes to admit people who already tested positive for coronavirus, who were determined by the state to be “medically stable.”
Bureaucrats are sick psychopaths.
Massachusetts General Hospital has a “COVID19 Simulator” that predicts thousands more deaths if fascist restrictions are lifted too soon. But this “simulator” is a bunch of crap, and people shouldn’t take it too seriously. Look at the previous models that “experts” like Dr. Fauci have been referring to, predicting 2 million deaths and now the “experts” have been forced to bring that down to maybe 30,000 or something like that.
Don’t believe the models.
Dr. Scott Atlas is a former chief of neuroradiology at the Stanford University Medical Center, and has some actual facts and common sense on the COVID “pandemic” that we are not seeing on mainstream media news outlets. (Hmm, I wonder why that is…) Here is his article at The Hill. Some excerpts:
The recent Stanford University antibody study now estimates that the fatality rate if infected is likely 0.1 to 0.2 percent, a risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that motivated isolation policies.
In New York City, an epicenter of the pandemic with more than one-third of all U.S. deaths, the rate of death for people 18 to 45 years old is 0.01 percent, or 10 per 100,000 in the population. On the other hand, people aged 75 and over have a death rate 80 times that. For people under 18 years old, the rate of death is zero per 100,000.
Of all fatal cases in New York state, two-thirds were in patients over 70 years of age; more than 95 percent were over 50 years of age; and about 90 percent of all fatal cases had an underlying illness. Of 6,570 confirmed COVID-19 deaths fully investigated for underlying conditions to date, 6,520, or 99.2 percent, had an underlying illness.
In fact, infected people without severe illness are the immediately available vehicle for establishing widespread immunity. By transmitting the virus to others in the low-risk group who then generate antibodies, they block the network of pathways toward the most vulnerable people, ultimately ending the threat. Extending whole-population isolation would directly prevent that widespread immunity from developing.
Here is Dr. Atlas in a recent interview with Martha MacCallum (from RealClearPolitics):
So, with all the facts and empirical data we have now, why are the Rulers still acting like the whole world is ending, and that anyone who gets COVID-19 will die? When no, MOST of the people who get it will NOT die! MOST of the people will have mild, flu symptoms or NO symptoms at all.
The Rulers are saying that we are “carriers” and could give it to someone who is vulnerable. But it’s the same case with the flu!
This article on “Stat” says that “more than half of U.S. states will have to significantly step up their Covid-19 testing to even consider starting to relax stay-at-home orders after May 1, according to a new analysis by Harvard researchers and STAT.”
No, Harvard, we don’t need to have widespread testing. What is it with this testing, testing crap? Have we been doing that with the flu and acting hysterically and locking up innocent people? NO!
Stop the hysteria!
I’ve had enough of this now, the hysteria over a “COVID” flu that’s going around and being sensationalized by the media and being used by tyrants in government to impose more intrusions and more police state on innocent people.
In every newscast the media continue to remind us of how many people died of COVID-19 yesterday or today, but do they tell us how many died of the flu? I’d like to know. Currently, the 2019-2020 influenza death toll is about 24,000 in the U.S., according to the CDC. “COVID-19” deaths in the U.S. stand at 18,559 as of yesterday, according to the CDC. So, regular every season influenza is dangerous to many people, too! But we’re not acting like morons because of that!
But even those COVID numbers aren’t correct, because as Dr. Deborah Birx has openly (and apparently proudly) admitted, government health officials are fixing the numbers and fraudulently giving us much higher death numbers by putting on death certificates that someone who died of a heart attack or other non-COVID illness is counted as a COVID-19 death just because the deceased happened to test positive for coronavirus. (Does that mean that if the person tested positive for influenza but not coronavirus that they will count that heart attack or other illness death as a flu death? No, of course not! It’s not part of the agenda!)
So, this is all a fraud. All this police state, arresting pastors for holding a church service, pulling people off the bus for not wearing a mask, fascist governors ordering businesses closed and putting people out of work, Wall Street crashing the economy, all for a FRAUD! Just because there are a lot of psychopaths out there who HATE Donald Trump so much, they would rather cause so much damage to everyday life and to people’s lives to ensure that he doesn’t get reelected. And that’s why a lot of people are doing this, and why the extreme propaganda and lies from the Hillary-drooling Dr. Fauci and Dr. Deborah Bersirx.
And The Donald is going along with the whole thing because he’s a “useful idiot,” as are conservative Trump-supporting governors like Ron DeSantis who are closing down their states and imposing a police state in the name of helping the crusade to get Trump to lose his reelection bid. Useful Idiots.
And the mask stuff. The official narrative is that well someone may have the virus but not know it without symptoms and may be a “carrier” and give it to someone else, so we all MUST wear a face mask. Really? And “stay 6 feet apart, not 5, not 7, but 6 feet apart!” (What is this, Monty Python and the Holy Grail?) But many people are “carriers” of the regular seasonal flu, which kills tens of thousands of people in the U.S. every season. “CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 39 million flu illnesses, 410,000 hospitalizations and 24,000 deaths from flu.”
So all this lunacy has to stop!
And this COVID thing may very well have been around a lot longer than officials have been telling us or that they even understand, themselves. Last week Rush Limbaugh was saying that he knows some people who have said that they had something like a very bad flu or cold many months ago, and they think that’s what that was, the COVID-19. And my mother told me that she and my brother had “the flu” in January, even though they both had had the flu shot. Was the flu vaccine just not effective? Or, was it something else?
I think that in any case, COVID-19 has probabmy been around since September. That might have been what Rush Limbaugh was concluding. And most of the population has already been exposed to COVID-19 and has already developed antibodies and natural immunity, in my opinion. The problems are with those who already have weakened lungs (from disease or age or from smoking, etc.) and weak respiratory systems and would not be able to withstand a COVID-19 illness or frankly a regular influenza illness.
Another problem is those people who have been so inundated and drenched with so much propaganda, panic-incitement and fear-mongering by the lying, dishonest psychopath government officials and by the agenda-obsessed media that if someone has a bad cough and sinus-congestion issues (but they aren’t having difficulty breathing) they are nevertheless rushing to the hospital and the emergency room out of fear and panic and that’s what’s causing the “crowds” at the hospital. I think that if you’re not having difficulty breathing you’re supposed to stay home and call you doctor, who will probably tell you to stay home.
Also, a caller to the Rush Limbaugh Show said that he thinks this whole fiasco is or might be a “dry run” to close everything down and say, “There, you see? Look how the pollution has gone way down now,” and so on, to make ending our cars and trucks and planes and industry more acceptable to the brainwashed sheeple public.
Jacob Hornberger says there is only one way out of the coronavirus crisis. Separating health care and State.
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.”
And this Soviet-like crap is what we are going to deal with in the future, especially if the government takes over the health care system.
