The Washington Post says some hospitals are withholding ventilators from Coronavirus patients who are struggling to breath, which is a death sentence for many of them. According to the paper, the reason is that the pandemic has placed so much load on hospitals that there is no choice. The basis for this is a video that portrays medical mayhem at Elmhurst Hospital in New York City – including a large refrigerator truck parked conspicuously at the rear of the hospital to receive stacks of dead bodies. The video emphasizes that they just don’t have enough ventilators.
The head of NYC public hospitals, however, says Elmhurst has never come close to running out of ventilators, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo admitted on camera that New York has thousands of ventilators received from the federal government that are still in storage, because they are not needed at the present time. Meanwhile, citizen journalists have been going to hospitals all over the country – and in other countries, as well – and filming empty parking lots and waiting rooms in the #FilmYourHospital truth movement.
Dr. Colleen Smith, who produced the video, attended the NYU School of Medicine as a “Simulation Fellow” and gives lectures on medical-crisis simulations, raising the reasonable question whether her video shows a real or simulated event. -GEG
In the chaos of New York City, where coronavirus deaths are mounting so quickly that freezer trucks have been set up as makeshift morgues, several hospitals have taken the unprecedented step of allowing doctors not to resuscitate people with covid-19 to avoid exposing health-care workers to the highly contagious virus.
The shift is part of a flurry of changes besieged hospitals are making almost daily, including canceling all but the most urgent surgeries, forgoing the use of isolation rooms, and requiring infected health workers who no longer have a fever to show up to work before the end of the previously recommended 14-day self-isolation period.
Last week, DNRs or do-not-resuscitate policies for coronavirus patients who stop breathing, or are in cardiac arrest, were being discussed as part of worst-case scenario planning — ideas dismissed late last week by Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus coordinator, saying, “there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.”
The CDC reports the inflated rate of hospitalization for any patient who tests positive for the virus. For example, an asymptomatic child who tests positive after being injured in a bicycle accident could counted as a COVID case. The CDC doesn’t distinguish whether a child is hospitalized for Covid or with Covid.
Rappoport pointed out that more unvaccinated people are are being diagnosed with COVID because they are more likely to get a test than vaccinated people. Also, the test protocol has been altered for vaccinated people to make the tests less sensitive, and therefore, producing fewer false positive results.
A federal appeals court ruled that the CDC exceeded its authority by temporarily halting evictions amid the pandemic. The moratorium is set to expire at the end of July. Landlords argue that the moratorium amounts to unlawful government overreach that costs property owners $13 billion each month.
California Governor Gavin Newsom announced the state will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing for all state workers and some health care employees. Newsom compared unvaccinated people to drunk drivers who put others’ lives at risk.
The Department of Veterans Affairs became the first federal agency to require its health care workers receive the COVID vaccine. Joe Biden said his administration was considering requiring all federal workers to get vaccinated.
Biden explicitly blamed the unvaccinated for the surge in case numbers despite many who have received the jab have also been diagnosed with COVID. The CDC also recommended indoor masks for all teachers, staff, students and visitors at schools nationwide, regardless of vaccination status. A recommendation is not a law.
Democrat Representative Cori Bush claimed that she received hateful messages from “white supremacists,” however, journalist Amanda Presto noticed that one of the threats Rep. Bush posted was an unsubmitted request form.
PayPal and the ADL aim to cut off the revenues of those that they deem to be profiting from hate but they will also be harvesting data on “extremist and hate movements” and sharing this data “broadly across the financial industry.”
While cases of COVID-19 soared nationwide, hospitalizations and deaths caused by influenza dropped. There were only 646 deaths relating to the flu among adults reported in 2020, whereas in 2019 the CDC estimated that between 24,000 and 62,000 people died from influenza-related illnesses.
Evidence of election fraud includes: eyewitness testimony, visual evidence such as total votes counted for Trump dropping on live television, statistical anomalies that indicate criminal fraud, expert testimony, credible proponents, unconstitutional changes in election laws, and more…
The FBI used at least 12 confidential informants to entrap six patsies in a manufactured kidnapping plot that was used to sway the 2020 election. The FBI assembled the key plotters, encouraged the group’s anti-government feelings, and even gave its members military-style training.
The Sacklers offered to settle for $4.5 billion to be paid over nine years without admitting any liability. The deal grants permanent immunity from all further lawsuits. If the settlement is carried out, the Sacklers can simply pay it off with interest from the principal.
While a recent poll showed radio host Larry Elder leading among the recall candidates by double digits, California voters first have to decide to remove Newsom from office before a decision can be made about who will replace him.
Senator Johnson said that he received information out of Israel that “shows the population is about 84% vaccinated. But the new cases of COVID in Israel are about 84% with vaccinated individuals.” He said that it looks like the Pfizer vaccine is not working with the Delta variant.
Due to the blood clots were found in the woman’s heart, she had to have both legs below the knee amputated and will later lose most of her two hands. Her husband asked why he did not catch COVID and if Pfizer’s vaccine did not defeat the virus, what role is it playing in her body?
DeSantis is standing against free speech and the free market by using the power of the state to blacklist a private company choosing to do business the way it wants. This case has massive implications for civil liberties. DeSantis previously banned criticism of Israel or Jewish people in public schools and colleges.
