  • In England, the death panel of socialized medicine appears again

    A British court has held that Britain’s National Health Service, which has long been the gold standard of socialized medicine, can stop treating a 19-year-old woman who is conscious and wants to live. This is the natural endpoint of the rationing that is inherent in socialized medicine. Ostensibly, socialized medicine promises to give top-quality healthcare to everyone. And if you’re a national treasure like Stephen Hawking, you will get that type of care, because it looks really bad if the government lets a renowned physicist with a degenerative disease die because treating him sucks up too many government resources. However,...

    Talk about being sold a bill of duds.Michael Shellenberger (that wonderful, courageous man) had a serious of tweets this afternoon and I could not believe my eyes.People say solar panels don't produce carbon emissions, but they do. And now, a major new investigation by Environmental Progress, drawing on the research of @enricomariutti , finds that solar panels made in China produce at least 3x more carbon emissions than IPCC claims.— Michael Shellenberger (@shellenberger) July 24, 2023The report from Environmental Progress points out a fatal flaw in the solar panel data all of this frenzied switch to renewables is based...
  • Canada’s Assisted-Suicide Program Set to Take Another ‘Prudent’ Step on Road to Perdition (sort of already here in America as “comfort care”)

    The literal suicide of the West continues apace in Canada.Starting in March 2024, people with mental illness will be able to avail themselves of medically assisted suicide.That represents the latest expansion in the Medical Assistance in Dying, or “MAID,” law that launched in 2016. Some Canadians are getting ready to take advantage of the forthcoming law.On Saturday, Reuters reported how a 47-year-old woman with anorexia will be allowed to kill herself with state assistance next year when the law changes.“Every day is hell,” Lisa Pauli said. “I’m so tired. I’m done. I’ve tried everything. I feel like I’ve lived my...

    American Greatness ^ | 24 Mar, 2023 | Thaddeus G. McCotter
    Best to keep an eye on Canada’s “Medical Aid in Dying” policies. The American Left does—and they like what they see. Invariably, no matter the issue, whenever the Left aims to implement a policy proposal it deems innocuous, a triggered Right declares it part of a slippery slope on the road to serfdom. Invariably, too, the Right is correct—as recent developments regarding Canada’s assisted-suicide law show. Why should you care about Canada and assisted suicide? Well, in the first place, the American Left is constantly importing other nations’ insane and injurious policies. The Left is not necessarily engaged in this...

Because excess deaths are skyrocketing around the (vaccinated) world, and insurance companies are ringing the alarm bells since they have to pay out the claims. ... The main point to remember: this trend has already started and it’s accelerating.

    Rishi Sunak, the United Kingdom’s new prime minister, refuses to answer a simple question. He was asked three times whether he received private medical care or relied upon the National Health Service, the British version of “single-payer” government-run national health insurance.Sunak dismissed the question as “not really relevant.” But it is.The prime minister is the head of the British government and is ultimately responsible for the National Health Service, the government agency that’s supposed to provide “free” universal coverage and care for all of Britain’s citizens.It does no such thing.According to the BBC, there are 7.2 million British citizens awaiting...
  • Doctors in USA admit they killed Patients during the Pandemic by putting them on Ventilators

    A jaw-dropping article published by The Wall Street Journal in December 2020 has resurfaced. In it, American physicians admitted to ventilating patients who did not need it as a step in their protocol. It was done not as a treatment that was likely to benefit the patient, but rather as a fruitless and callous way of attempting to stop the spread of covid-19.Doctors are treating a new flood of critically ill coronavirus patients with treatments from before the pandemic, to keep more patients alive and send them home sooner.Before the pandemic, between about 30% to more than 40% of ventilator...

    A world-renowned oncologist and one of the architects of Obamacare will refuse any medication in 10 years' time - including antibiotics, chemotherapy and even pain meds The physician has dedicated large parts of his career to saving the lives of elderly Americans, but his personal belief is that old age is a burden on society and loved ones. Dr Emanuel, who served in both the Obama and Biden administrations, says there is also a lack of dignity when aging past 75.

    A disabled veteran in Canada has slammed her government for offering to euthanize her when she grew frustrated at delays in having a wheelchair lift installed in her home. Retired Army Corporal Christine Gauthier, a former Paralympian, testified in Parliament on Thursday that a Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) caseworker made the assisted suicide offer. After years of frustrating delays in getting the home lift, Gauthier says the caseworker told her: 'Madam, if you are really so desperate, we can give you medical assistance in dying now.' The worker who made the offer hasn't been named, but they are feared to...

    Two economists reported Tuesday in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that President Joe Biden is cutting Medicare benefits through the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, which cuts payments for prescription drugs for seniors. Casey B. Mulligan and Tomas J. Philipson wrote: President Biden has accused Republicans of scheming to cut Medicare. In fact it is his signature legislation, the Inflation Reduction Act, that will lead to benefit cuts and premium increases for seniors. Medicare’s popular drug-coverage program is headed for a painful amputation. The private plans participating in Medicare’s prescription-drug program, known as Part D, currently draw on three sources of...

    Bad news for the future of medicine and the future of human life. While radical politics had consumed the ‘soft sciences’ and most impractical academic fields, the practical ones, especially the sciences, were generally intact. In the last decade, all of academia has crumbled.Quotas are everywhere and woke mandates have displaced academic ones.That means people will die. Because we’ll have doctors who got there by talking about their victimhood, but are not qualified to do anything more than posture and virtue signal about their pain.Forty-four percent of medical schools have tenure and promotion policies that reward scholarship on “diversity, inclusion,...

Bessie Hendricks celebrated her 115th birthday with a party at Shady Oaks Care Center, where she lives in Lake City. The party was attended by all three of Hendricks' surviving children, including daughter Joan Schaffer, who celebrated her 90th birthday the previous day. "I don't know how you put it into words," Schaffer told KCCI-TV. "It's marvelous that we still have her." Hendricks' own mother died when she was 13, leaving...

    Terence Graham has been waiting anxiously for weeks to receive urgent CT scan results after experiencing "noticeable swelling" in the back of his head that gave him "blinding headaches." The 55-year-old Canadian Forces veteran, who lives in Laird, Ont., about 40 kilometres southeast of Sault Ste. Marie, said he was checked out at the local emergency department on July 27. Not only did it take nearly three weeks to get the scan, he says he's since been unable to get the results. The findings of a new Angus Reid Institute poll conducted in Canada and the U.S. in August suggest...

    A 12-year-old boy who was comatose in the United Kingdom has died after a lengthy legal battle ended with the determination that doctors could remove him from life support. Archie Battersbee, 12, died at a London hospital around noon on Saturday, about two hours after doctors discontinued treating him. Young Archie has been in a coma since April 7, when he was initially found unconscious in the family’s home. Ella Carter, the fiancée of Archie's eldest brother, Tom, said the family watched the boy’s final moments. "He went completely blue,'' she said. "There is absolutely nothing dignified about watching a...

    Human life suddenly became less valuable when a "constitutional right" to abortion was created by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973. Part of the worry from critics was that that very standard would be applied to seniors, too. In Colorado. which was a leader in the race to turn abortion into a national industry, the move to get rid of seniors also surged at that time. In fact, it was Colorado's governor, Dick Lamm, who shortly later proclaimed to senior citizens, "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way…" Now a report from The DCPatriot is...
  • Are Canadians being driven to assisted suicide by poverty or healthcare crisis? Critics argue laws are being misused to punish the poor but experts say cases represent country’s failure to care for its most vulnerable citizens

    After pleading unsuccessfully for affordable housing to help ease her chronic health condition, a Canadian woman ended her life in February under the country’s assisted-suicide laws. Another woman, suffering from the same condition and also living on disability payments, has nearly reached final approval to end her life. The two high-profile cases have prompted disbelief and outrage, and shone a light on Canada’s right-to-die laws, which critics argue are being misused to punish the poor and infirm. In late April, the Spectator ran a story with the provocative headline: Why is Canada euthanising the poor? But medical and legal experts...

    President Biden’s new ambassador to the Holy See voted in favor of former President Obama’s legislative agenda supporting Planned Parenthood and gay marriage when he was a senator, despite previously speaking out against such measures. Joe Donnelly, who served as a Democratic senator from Indiana from 2013 to 2019, presented his credentials to Pope Francis at the apostolic palace in Vatican City on April 11. “I look forward to deepening our ties with the Holy See. My family and I are proud to be members of the Catholic faith,” Donnelly said in a video. “From my childhood, through my college...

    America had a hearty laugh mixed with mild horror this week when it learned that the Biden Administration is planning to distribute free crack pipes to drug addicts for the sake of “racial equity.” The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant … are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any...

    Now it makes sense.Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is the brother of Rahm Emanuel and is credited with being the brain behind medical death panels.The New York Post in 2009 reported on Dr. Emanuel’s health care priorities.Emanuel believes that “communitarianism” should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. ’96).This weekend a Gateway Pundit reader sent us this interesting tidbit from...
