There’s More to Death than Covid-19

Breathless headlines featuring ‘the Virus” are beginning to fade into a chronic undercurrent of fear thy neighbor for he might be bearing the gift of Covid. What you won’t see in the headlines are stories about a more pervasive and ultimately more lethal virus: a growing disregard for others and devaluation of life. Rampant homicides are disheartening enough, but more shocking is the shifting morality in medicine.
News headlines gave the impression that the newly instituted Covid rules were designed to save lives, yet we soon learned the lockdowns, masking, school closures did more harm than good. Meanwhile—in plain sight—government-sanctioned sacrifice of the elderly was taking place. In 5 “progressive” states, Covid-positive patients were discharged from hospital isolation units and returned to their nursing homes where they comingled with uninfected residents. Of course, many more residents became ill.
It didn’t make the headlines that half of Covid deaths were in nursing homes and 80 percent of deaths were in those over 65. This might have encouraged more policies that protected our elders and allowed the younger folks to carry on with their lives. To date, the news has not reported any apologies to the families of the victims of government and medical incompetence.
In 2020, many hospitals in the United States considered guidelines that would allow doctors to withhold CPR from Covid patients, ignoring the patient’s wishes. Our neighbor to the north, Quebec had actually issued such an order lasting from April to September 2020. Bless the paramedics on the front lines who complained and had the order lifted.
Age-related rationing is alive and well. The ethics advisor to 78-year-old President Biden, Ezekiel Emanuel, MD, author of the utilitarian “Complete Lives System” of medical care, chose age 75 as his personal benchmark for ending life.
This is so wrong. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” Whether mentally sharp or in declining health, older people give texture and context to our lives. Reflecting on older folks reminds us that in their lifetime innovations have gone from puttering around in a car to rocketing to the moon. And Dick Tracy’s comic book two-way wrist radio is now a commonly worn Apple watch.
The behavior of bureaucrats and the medical establishment during the Covid “crisis” laid bare the dismissive treatment of elders. And an uncomfortable question hangs in the air: was the nursing home debacle a conscious attempt to cull the herd? After all, Medicare chews up 15 percent of the federal budget and 25 percent of Medicare dollars are spent in the last year of the patient’s life.
According to the 2019 Medicare Trustees report, the Medicare Hospital Insurance trust fund will be depleted in 2026—a short 5 years away.
If this form of population control sounds un-American, remember that our country seriously engaged in eugenics, marked by 75 years of Supreme Court-approved forced sterilization. The abortion industry has devolved from a time when a woman was mortified to have an abortion to where clinics are advertised on highway billboards. The quest for clean air has gone from encouraging recycling and renewable energy to suggesting that human depopulation is the only way to save the planet.
Human concern in medicine has taken a back seat to marginal scientific ethics and perhaps, secret agendas. We have become numb to the experiments using fresh aborted fetal tissue to create “humanized mice” that sprout various human organs. This slow walk to the edge of medical ethics has allowed science to go in grotesquely anti-human directions.
Jointly with Chinese government funding, United States researchers created viable embryos that are a mix of human and monkey cells (a “chimera”). With funding from the Chan Zuckerberg [Mr. Facebook] Initiative, researchers tinkered with male rats so they could deliver live babies via Cesarian section.
Sadly, physicians have become willing participants in the government’s borderline coercion by not informing themselves about early treatments for Covid or the side effects of the experimental vaccine. Federal and state governments are bribing, cajoling, and subjecting us to door-to-door pressure to take an injection of a product that could be killing us in numbers not seen before.
Serious reactions include miscarriages, Bell’s palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, blood clotting disorders (including brain clots), and anaphylaxis. Bizarrely, the White House is challenging colleges to vaccinate its entire campus, despite sometimes fatal heart inflammation after vaccinations in young adults (who have infinitesimal risk of significant Covid illness).
It appears we are guinea pigs in a grand experiment. The elderly were the casualties of Phase I. As the post-vaccine bodies pile up, the Nuremberg Code’s principle is being ignored: The experiment must be stopped if continuation would result in injury and death.
It’s not too late. Physicians must remember their Oath of Hippocrates and speak up and act

  1. Just what the ‘Doctor Ordered’! Post ‘9/11’, this COVID-19 Pandemic, came handy, to keep the World, the American People, ‘OFF Balance’, Confused, Irrational, Desperate, Distressed, in order to avoid a, ‘REAL INVESTIGATION’, into who are those DEMONIC Creatures, Foreign and DOMESTIC, who have UNDERTAKEN, the ‘Controlled Demolition’ of the WTC. Towers #1,#2, #7 giant structures? That ‘False Flag Attack’, has been at the ROOT, of the World Conflagration, for the past TWO DECADES, that is still taking place!

  2. In modern America, with all of its stupid and irrelevant government controls, I appreciate any MD who is also a JD, especially if the JD is trained in constitutional law. Here’s another Gandhi quote:

    “Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” — Mahatma Gandhi

  3. Religions are the primary cause of most nursing home covid deaths. They refused to wear masks, the help is paid dirt, and nobody was telling the rabbi or the pastor to stop coming to the home to see grandma. Since 2008, many many qualified contractors got out of the business and now flip homes or slunk into semi-retirement. the nursing homes should have been ventilated immediately as should have the stores. the small ones would have been easier actually, because the more people in a store, the better chance of it spreading all day every day. If Cuomo had any chance of keeping the orthodox people from visiting the homes or wearing a mask, he would have had to use the NG. The entire ground zero in NY was a religious wedding. Today, it continues……..

    • here’s the really dumb part. The first criticism was that governors were not doing enough, and the same people that complained about that, went ape shit when the mask mandates came out. The indication is very clear. We are a really dumb and callous population that will not only leave our elderly during a crisis, but will assist any pandemic beyond what they would the common person. The grade for our handling of this is F -.

  4. The author writes posts for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Impressive organizational name. From a quick look at their web site, they carry anti-vaccination articles and they discuss alternative treatments for covid. Pre-covid, their web site carried anti-Affordable Care Act/single payer articles.

    Needless to say, I personally am strongly opposed to their views. I am very in favor of being fully vaccinated for covid and it’s tragic that millions of Americans and people worldwide are getting a dangerous contrary message.

    • Not “needless” to say at all. Your opinions are your own. If you think they universally reflect those of all VT readers and contributors, I believe you may be mistaken. But, thanks for jumping into the dialogue. The jury is still out on most issues raised in this article.
