My wife attended a funeral today. The man who was the guest of honor had died of COVID, and was the father of a friend. My wife went to pay her respects. The story that she was told left me speechless.
When the man became sick to the point where he was not doing well, they took him to a local hospital. (Not the one where I work). It turns out to have been the worst mistake that they could have made. After he was admitted, he became sicker. They would not allow any family in to see him. For the next ten days, his health began to suffer. He was moved to the ICU.
A wealthy friend of the family hired a medical evacuation team and a private jet to fly him to a larger, better equipped hospital. The better hospital agreed to accept him. The medical team arrived at the airport and was ready to take him to the other hospital. The small, local hospital refused to allow him to leave.
A few days later, he died. A Catholic, and a priest was not even allowed in to give last rites. He died alone, having not seen his family in over two weeks.
I would find out the name of the doctor that did this to my family. He would receive a visit from me, where I delivered some hard lessons.
I recently had a similar situation occur at my hospital. A fellow employee came to me because she needed help with obtaining information about her mother, who was a patient in the COVID ward. I helped her. She and her mother were both thankful.
I was called by my boss and told not to help her and used HIPAA as an excuse. I said OK, and then told my fellow employee what paperwork to fill out that would require the hospital to release the information.
My boss found out, and I got a HUGE ass chewing. I asked her how she would feel if that were HER mother. She told me that was beside the point. Things got heated, and I am surprised that I wasn’t fired myself. My wife was concerned.
My wife is upset about the death of her friend’s father. I told her that was the exact reason why I would not violate my principles for a paycheck. “I was just following orders” is not something I am prepared to try and use as a defense.
She understands that I have morals and principles that I live by. There are some things that I just won’t do. One of them is to violate those principles, and I don’t care how big of a paycheck I lose as a result.
The doctors and other healthcare personnel who did this should be ashamed of themselves.

Hospitals that do this as a matter of policy will become known for doing it. Unfortunately that’s when armed families will begin taking matters into their own hands.
It’s all so avoidable, but these suicidal progressive fools keep rushing toward the precipice.

And that is exactly what I’m waiting to see happen with a certain amount of relish. This is well past the point of working within the system for “justice” (i.e. at best some insuror goves the victims some fuck off money and an NDA and that is quite unlikely in the present paradigm).
There is an unfathomable amount of retribution that needs to be meted out for what these sonsabitches have done. This is absoutely premeditated murder being committed on a large scale; with a heap of torture and depraved indifference to boot. The message that needs to be sent to force attonement for such offenses needs to be equally painful for the perps as it was for the hapless victims.
And really, why would anyone seek redress in the very system that is condoning and encouraging this slaughter of the captive helpless. Yeah, I guess this post glows like the cooling pool at Fukushima, but I’ve no compunction about saying I want blood. Nothing less is acceptable now. They’ve staked out their position quite clearly and are now even openly taunting us with an unspoken “WTF are you gonna do about it?” Anyone who has a family member treated this way should bring the pain upon those responsible. I’d happily face my maker having done so.

This. A hundred thousand times this. Time to answer “whatcha gonna do about it?”

ANYONE blocking should have been charged with kidnapping. After the decision was made, then assault and battery charges filed……on every swinging dick involved….
Big Ruckus D · August 20, 2021 at 10:28 pm
Not aiming to be a smart ass here, this is a serious question:
Who is going to file and prosecute those charges? The police and the prosecuting attorney? You have any faith that if you called the local cop shop and reported a kidnapping at the hospital that they would respond?
My take is that if (you or I by way of example) as a civilian are boxed in at both ends here. The cops will give us the kiss off in deference to the doctors who have the professional clout to also tell us to FOAD. Or, if the cops do show under those circumstances, we would more likely get charged with filing a false report and harrassment and get stuffed, than to get the relief we are seeking. In light of that, are you going to find a judge who will grant an injunction, much less quickly enough to make any practical difference? Good luck with that.
Which brings me back to there being two choices in reality: either being forced to let your loved die while being held hostage, or going Chuck Norris on the shits responsible so there can be an immediate resolution. Yeah, they both suck. And yet here we are. I guess the third option is to do both.
Yes, it is really that bleak.

The medical profession will soon be listed alongside the media when sporty times come…

Slight correction: The subhuman filth responsible for that atrocity need to be dangling from a lamppost.

Since this has been going on since March of 2020, why is any of this a surprise to anybody.
A couple, waiting out their final years, in the same room at a nursing home, both come down, according to the tests, with Covid. And are separated into separate rooms.
People being denied preventative care or care when stuff first starts happening, and are only accepted when basically dying.
People not getting cancer treatments or anything that can be labeled as ‘elective’ surgery for life conditions and then dying or ending up heading to death because a simple fix or a simple procedure could have derailed the death train.
We have become England and their National Health System.
Tit-Toking medical staff, Doctors and Nurses openly deciding who will live or die, and the pure stupidity of it all.
Here in my local area, the Covid Providers come from the hospital in their scrubs, don’t wear masks, don’t change their clothes, and screech at us ‘lessers’ for not wearing masks and not covering ourselves in disinfectant when we get near them.
Trust medical ‘professionals’? Maybe when modern interpretive dance or advance social justice warrior isn’t part of their training.

DM, how do these hospital staffs live with themselves helping cover up and keep this lie of covid going?…it’s like the whole fucking world is doing whatever possible to keep this shit going…i don’t get it…anyone with a half a brain now/should knows it’s a big lie, has been a big lie…the death count, the masks, the social distancing…

> Who is going to file and prosecute those charges?
A grand jury, which convenes on its own authority and directs a prosecutor to prosecute. A grand jury is the legal term in the American system for a mob with pitchforks and torches.
> how do these hospital staffs live with themselves helping cover up and keep this lie of covid going?
Some 80% of human beings are like that, and always have been. The Norman Rockwell fantasy of every-man-a-citizen is just that, a fantasy.

Heh. Not sure if there was a missing /sarcoff there or not at the end of the first paragraph. Yeah, that’s how it is SUPPOSED to work. But, the process so eloquently outlined there is no longer what actually happens in so many cases. The justice system has been perverted and can no longer be trusted to work.
So, I’ll just reiterate: when that process doesn’t play out the way we have been lead to believe it will and thereby fails to grant the needed relief, then what? Under the officially sanctioned path to justice, you either admit defeat (and the critical covid patient you want to save dies) or you strike up a little classic Sinatra and do it “my way”.
The denial of justice is an epidemic of its own in this country. Rittenhouse, Jan 6 protesters, Epstein, letting looters, property destroying rioters and shoplifters walk as official policy, judges unilaterally invalidating properly enacted legislation or executive actions by simple declaration. The list is so long with so many bald face perversions of justice where the govt simply disregards the law for their own convenience; and presents it with an implicit WTF are you gonna do about it, because they have been able to do that so far with a distinct lack of real world consequences.
People will either start going around that failed system that holds those legitmately seeking justice in contempt – so yes, extra judicial actions – or will simply eat the shit sandwich they are served and ask for another. The latter outcome is never acceptable, but it happens on a huge scale every single day here. They know what they are doing, and we know what they are doing. Enough of that shit.
A government that openly flaunts its power to disregard the law to it’s own ends, and simultaneously over applies the same laws it exempts itself from to those it wishes to persecute has invalidated its claim to any legitimacy and thereby is no longer recognized as being able to apply the law to anyone, except by the raw excercise of power.
Such abuse of power must be met with a response of sufficient magnitude (no, not by seeking an injunction) as to make it clear that they no longer hold that power. That means taking it away by equivalent force, even if it happens only one corrupt bastard at a time.
