The Mystery of Declining Life Expectancy

by Cameron Salisbury In 1989-1990 the USSR’s Berlin wall came crashing down. As Western observers gloated and took credit, no one noticed that civilian life in the Soviet Union was a casualty of the upheaval. The disintegration of their government was deadly for the population.  Over the next several years, life expectancy in the former Soviet Union declined by years, so much that observers thought the numbers must be a mistake. In one year alone, between 1992 and1993, life expectancy fell by 3 years. Declining life expectancy can signal a catastrophe. It means that something is deeply amiss in the underlying society. Life expectancy in the U.S. has been declining slowly for several years, and now seems to be speeding up.  For the first 6 months of 2020, government data shows that a person in the U.S. can expect to live 77.6 years, a decline of an entire year from the 78.6 years of 2019. The CDC, and it’s unquestioning mouthpiece, the U.S. mass media, has blamed the decrease in life expectancy on opioid abuse and suicide. In other words, the dead were responsible for their own demise. This year they include covid-19 deaths, although for the first half of 2020, covid-19 was just getting started, and deaths were nearly always among the elderly.  The U.S. has nearly 3 million deaths a year and a few thousand extra suicides, opioid deaths, or artificially inflated numbers of deaths among the elderly, will not move the needle. The massive decline in life expectancy has to be due to something else. Something that affects all of society. But, if the drugged, suicidal, and elderly are not responsible for declining life expectancy and something else is, things could get very messy, couldn’t they? The more likely reason that life expectancy in the U.S. is falling is that something toxic and ongoing is happening in the culture, something buried deliberately out of site in the mortality statistics. Something like an indifferent and deadly hospital culture, as well as death dispensed with wild abandon by Big Pharma and their heavily advertised and fatal pills. Something like inattentive physicians, sometimes well meaning and sometimes not, who have trouble keeping up with FDA announcements and Big Pharma sales tactics.. The only hint of the involvement of the medical culture is the category for septicemia, or sepsis, that consistently, year after year, tallies about 40,000 deaths and shows up as the 10th or 11th cause of death. Sepsis (blood poisoning) is a deadly blood stream infection.  The types of infection, which include MRSA and C Diff, are introduced in clinics, nursing homes, and doctor’s offices but usually in hospitals. It occurs when dirty equipment is used to give injections, vaccinate, open veins, operate, or do any other invasive procedure. There are no invasive procedures that do not expose the blood stream to potentially lethal contamination. (Despite what they want you to believe, people do not enter the hospital with sepsis they acquired at home.) There is an astounding disconnect between deaths due to sepsis from death certificates and independent investigations that are published in medical journals. Over and over research into hospital records shows the number of sepsis deaths many times higher than the official count from death certificates. CDC’s own investigation indicated sepsis as a cause of death of up to 380,000 annually, which would make it the third leading cause of death in the U.S. That figure doesn’t include the 15% of sepsis deaths that occur outside of hospitals, such as those in nursing homes. Big killers contributing to the decline in life expectancy are dirty hospitals, dirty equipment and indifferent staff. When you have a chance, ask your doctor how s/he feels about controlling hospital infections. Hand washing and using sterilized equipment is entirely in the hands of the staff but the commitment comes from those in charge. Unless your doctor is adamant, find someone else. When you find yourself in a medical setting, stay on guard. Make sure no one and nothing touches you without being sterilized. Your life may depend on it. If you need surgery, (a ‘procedure’, as they say) try to find a good doctor who uses an outpatient clinic. A privately owned outpatient surgical center gives a doctor much better control over what happens while you are sedated. The people involved in your surgery are also much more accountable. In hospitals, where a constantly fluctuating staff are constantly in and out, no one is accountable.  Which they know well. If the same health standards applied to restaurants were applied to hospitals, few would stay open. Death certificate data has a number of catch-all categories. Heart disease is a go-to whenever someone dies for an unknown reason, or for a reason the hospital prefers not to admit. Hypertension is another one. There are naturally occurring blood pressure increases with age. It doesn’t kill as often as they’d like you to think. On the other hand, there are significant and tragic causes of mortality with no separate category. Such as doctor and hospital errors, pharmacy errors, and pharmaceuticals that kill when taken as prescribed. The big one is the last: legal drugs, courtesy of the FDA, massive advertising by wealthy corporations and medical staff who remain clueless. Although illegal drugs are sometimes killers, and legal drugs may be taken illegally, prescription drugs taken as prescribed are major sources of death and destruction. While cocaine and heroin kill up to 20,000 people every year, prescription drugs kill over 100,000 annually and have life altering side effects for millions of survivors. If counted accurately, they would be the fourth leading cause of death. Some expensive pills have no use whatever, like Vioxx before it was withdrawn, or drugs that interfere with normal physical processes and should never be prescribed, like statins. The federal pharmaceutical guardian that we pay for with our taxes, the FDA, is well aware that some drugs are too dangerous to be prescribed. You’d think they owed it to us to withdraw them from the market and occasionally they do (Vioxx) but most of the time they simply issue a ‘black box’ warning designed to alert users that the drug is deadly, to be carried on the packaging. That means no hospitalized patient and most doctors and nurses never see it. But then, few medical staff have ever heard of a black box warning. And the drug remains on the market to be prescribed, so what difference does a warning make? We consumers, the pharmaceutical industry’s patsies, need a working and effective FDA that is not allowed to receive cash from Big Pharma or its representatives. The legal drug culture has been called ‘a war against Americans.’ Pharmaceuticals are a major, unacknowledged, killer, and Big Pharma wants drugs to stay that way. ‘Our’ FDA just goes along. Remember that long list of side effects aired as part of every ad? They are designed to be minimized and you may think they apply to someone else .Well, they don’t. The control groups that drugs are tested on are small enough so that you can assume that every single Big Pharma guinea pig had an adverse effect to the drug in question. The reason isn’t complicated. All drugs are poison to the human body and each body will reject the drug in it’s own way. This applies even to apparently benign over-the-counter drugs, like aspirin, naproxen (Aleve), and ibuprofen, (Advil) which, according to one study, would rank as leading causes of death if tabulated separately. Tylenol is responsible for most liver failure in the U.S. Pharmaceuticals are not allowed to advertise in Europe and the life expectancy there, unlike the U.S., continues to increase. But like medical errors and hospital infections, prescription drug deaths are not categorized separately, even in the unlikely event that nurses, doctors or hospitals acknowledge them. There are excellent natural sources of healing explained throughout the internet. Only in rare circumstances do the sick have to rely on modern U.S. medicine. The last category of possible death-dealing comes from the U.S. agriculture industry and it’s reliance on Monsanto and Dow Chemical for genetically modified and Round-Up Ready crops. No one knows the impact of blatant tampering with nature, partly because evidence shows that those companies hide the results of studies that might hurt their sales. Some U.S. jurisdictions, and Europe, have tried to control the planting of genetically modified crops only to find themselves in an expensive legal battle with the giant, wealthy companies who are determined to thwart popular will. Once you get into the grocery store you are presented with a smorgasbord of untested chemicals and genetically modified organisms, in nearly everything you buy. There are dyes, texturizers, preservatives, emulsifiers, and the residues of farm chemicals. Much of the fresh food has been irradiated so that you won’t get sick when food processors sell you food that isn’t clean, and ground meat is usually gassed to preserve its fresh appearance. A horrified friend recently discovered that her blood had a high level of Round-Up’s glyphosate.  What is her prognosis? Maybe Monsanto knows, but they aren’t saying. Try always to buy organic food which by definition is unadulterated, or buy food from European processors.  In Europe, tampering with the food supply is frowned upon. Some people might suspect that a large part of declining life expectancy is the result of America’s anything-goes capitalism.

Things As They Are … Beware

by Cameron Salisbury

This is from Dr. Mercola (5/1/2021) who is being heavily censored and physically threatened, the result of his disagreement with the government’s Covid drama.. His new book is The Truth About COVID-19, available at Amazon now but may not be available for long.

=====================================================================

……

Politicians in January 2021 managed to pass the COVID-19 Consumer Protection Act of the 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act.7 This piece of legislation was hidden in a 2,100-page bill8 that now provides the government with enormous legal authority to prosecute anyone for “crime” of disagreeing with the official narrative that the vaccine is the ONLY approved approach to treat or prevent COVID-19. Here is the relevant portion of this Act:

This Act makes it unlawful under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act for any person, partnership, or corporation to engage in a deceptive act or practice in or affecting commerce associated with the treatment, cure, prevention, mitigation, or diagnosis of COVID-19 or a government benefit related to COVID-19.

Remember, Hitler and Mussolini came to power LEGALLY, because they subverted the legal structures of their country. Folks, you are now seeing the same kind of subversion happening in real time in the U.S. It is obvious that this is the first assault, designed to remove your personal freedom and liberty. This law essentially abolishes the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution with respect to ANY dialog on COVID-19.

The 31 Reasons Why I Won’t Get Vaccinated

by Cameron Salisbury

This article was written by Rabbi Chananya Weissman and reprinted in Lew Rockwell.

It’s an important article and not all of you have seen it.  Every word of it is true.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.   It’s not a vaccine. A vaccine by definition provides immunity to a disease. This does not provide immunity to anything. In a best-case scenario, it merely reduces the chance of getting a severe case of a virus if one catches it. Hence, it is a medical treatment, not a vaccine. I do not want to take a medical treatment for an illness I do not have.
2.   The drug companies, politicians, medical establishment, and media have joined forces to universally refer to this as a vaccine when it is not one, with the intention of manipulating people into feeling safer about undergoing a medical treatment. Because they are being deceitful, I do not trust them, and want nothing to do with their medical treatment.
3.   The presumed benefits of this medical treatment are minimal and would not last long in any case. The establishment acknowledges this, and is already talking about additional shots and ever-increasing numbers of new “vaccines” that would be required on a regular basis. I refuse to turn myself into a chronic patient who receives injections of new pharmaceutical products on a regular basis simply to reduce my chances of getting a severe case of a virus that these injections do not even prevent.
4.   I can reduce my chances of getting a severe case of a virus by strengthening my immune system naturally. In the event I catch a virus, there are vitamins and well-established drugs that have had wonderful results in warding off the illness, without the risks and unknowns of this medical treatment.
5.   The establishment insists that this medical treatment is safe. They cannot possibly know this because the long-term effects are entirely unknown, and will not be known for many years. They may speculate that it is safe, but it is disingenuous for them to make such a claim that cannot possibly be known. Because they are being disingenuous, I do not trust them, and I want no part of their treatment.
6.   The drug companies have zero liability if anything goes wrong, and cannot be sued. Same for the politicians who are pushing this treatment. I will not inject myself with a new, experimental medical device when the people behind it accept no liability or responsibility if something goes wrong. I will not risk my health and my life when they refuse to risk anything.
7.   Israel’s Prime Minister has openly admitted that the Israeli people are the world’s laboratory for this experimental treatment. I am not interested in being a guinea pig or donating my body to science.
8.   Israel agreed to share medical data of its citizens with a foreign drug company as a fundamental part of their agreement to receive this treatment. I never consented for my personal medical data to be shared with any such entity, nor was I even asked. I will not contribute to this sleazy enterprise.
9.   The executives and board members at Pfizer are on record that they have not taken their own treatment, despite all the fanfare and assurances. They are claiming that they would consider it unfair to “cut the line”. This is a preposterous excuse, and it takes an unbelievable amount of chutzpah to even say such a thing. Such a “line” is a figment of their own imagination; if they hogged a couple of injections for themselves no one would cry foul. In addition, billionaires with private jets and private islands are not known for waiting in line until hundreds of millions of peasants all over the world go first to receive anything these billionaires want for themselves.
10.   The establishment media have accepted this preposterous excuse without question or concern. Moreover, they laud Pfizer’s executives for their supposed self-sacrifice in not taking their own experimental treatment until we go first. Since they consider us such fools, I do not trust them, and do not want their new treatment. They can have my place in line. I’ll go to the very back of the line.
11.   Three facts that must be put together:

 

  • Bill Gates is touting these vaccines as essential to the survival of the human race.
  • Bill Gates believes the world has too many people and needs to be “depopulated”.
  • Bill Gates, perhaps the richest man in the world, has also not been injected. No rush.

Uh, no. I’ll pass on any medical treatments he wants me to take.

12.   The establishment has been entirely one-sided in celebrating this treatment. The politicians and media are urging people to take it as both a moral and civic duty. The benefits of the treatment are being greatly exaggerated, the risks are being ignored, and the unknowns are being brushed aside. Because they are being deceitful and manipulative, I will not gamble my personal wellbeing on their integrity.
13.   There is an intense propaganda campaign for people to take this treatment. Politicians and celebrities are taking selfies of themselves getting injected (perhaps in some cases pretending to get injected), the media is hyping this as the coolest, smartest, most happy and fun thing to do. It is the most widespread marketing campaign in history. This is not at all appropriate for any medical treatment, let alone a brand new one, and it makes me recoil.
14.   The masses are following in tow, posting pictures of themselves getting injected with a drug, feeding the mass peer pressure to do the same. There is something very alarming and sick about this, and I want no part of it. I never took drugs just because “everyone’s doing it” and it’s cool. I’m certainly not going to start now.
15.   Those who raise concerns about this medical treatment are being bullied, slandered, mocked, censored, ostracized, threatened, and fired from their jobs. This includes medical professionals who have science-based concerns about the drug and caregivers who have witnessed people under their charge suffering horrible reactions and death shortly after being injected. When the establishment is purging good people who risk everything simply to raise concerns about a new medical treatment — even if they don’t outright oppose it — I will trust these brave people over the establishment every time. I cannot think of a single similar case in history when truth and morality turned out to be on the side of the establishment.
16.   This is the greatest medical experiment in the history of the human race.
17.   It is purposely not being portrayed as the greatest medical experiment in the history of the human race, and the fact that it is a medical experiment at all is being severely downplayed.
18.   Were they up front with the masses, very few would agree to participate in such an experiment. Manipulating the masses to participate in a medical experiment under false pretenses violates the foundations of medical ethics and democratic law. I will not allow unethical people who engage in such conduct to inject me with anything.
19.   The medical establishment is not informing people about any of this. They have become marketing agents for an experimental drug, serving huge companies and politicians who have made deals with them. This is a direct conflict with their mandate to concern themselves exclusively with the wellbeing of the people under their care. Since the medical establishment has become corrupted, and has become nothing more than a corporate and political tool, I do not trust the experimental drug they want so badly to inject me with.
20.   We are being pressured in various ways to get injected, which violates medical ethics and the foundations of democratic society. The best way to get me not to do something is to pressure me to do it.
21.   The government has sealed their protocol related to the virus and treatments for THIRTY YEARS. This is information that the public has a right to know, and the government has a responsibility to share. What are they covering up? Do they really expect me to believe that everything is kosher about all this, and that they are concerned first and foremost with my health? The last time they did this was with the Yemenite Children Affair. If you’re not familiar with it, look it up. Now they’re pulling the same shtick. They didn’t fool me the first time, and they’re definitely not fooling me now.
22.   The government can share our personal medical data with foreign corporations, but they won’t share their own protocol on the matter with us? I’m out.
23.   The establishment has recruited doctors, rabbis, the media, and the masses to harangue people who don’t want to get injected with a new drug. We are being called the worst sort of names. We are being told that we believe in crazy conspiracies, that we are against science, that we are selfish, that we are murderers, that we don’t care about the elderly, that it’s our fault that the government continues to impose draconian restrictions on the public. It’s all because we don’t want to get injected with an experimental treatment, no questions asked. We are even being told that we have a religious obligation to do this, and that we are grave sinners if we do not. They say that if we do not agree to get injected, we should be forced to stay inside our homes forever and be ostracized from public life.
This is horrific, disgusting, a perversion of common sense, morality, and the Torah. It makes me recoil, and only further cements my distrust of these people and my opposition to taking their experimental drug. How dare they?
24.   I know of many people who got injected, but none of them studied the science in depth, carefully weighed the potential benefits against the risks, compared this option to other alternatives, was truly informed, and decided this medical treatment was the best option for them. On the contrary, they got injected because of the hype, the propaganda, the pressure, the fear, blind trust in what “the majority of experts” supposedly believed (assuming THEY all studied everything in depth and were completely objective, which is highly dubious), blind trust in what certain influential rabbis urged them to do (ditto the above), or hysterical fear that the only option was getting injected or getting seriously ill from the virus. When I see mass hysteria and cult-like behavior surrounding a medical treatment, I will be extremely suspicious and avoid it.
25.   The drug companies have a long and glorious history of causing mass carnage with wonder drugs they thrust on unsuspecting populations, even after serious problems had already become known. Instead of pressing the pause button and halting the marketing of these drugs until these issues could be properly investigated, the drug companies did everything in their power to suppress the information and keep pushing their products. When companies and people have demonstrated such gross lack of concern for human life, I will not trust them when they hype a new wonder drug. This isn’t our first rodeo.
26.   Indeed, the horror stories are already coming in at warp speed, but the politicians are not the least bit concerned, the medical establishment is brushing them aside as unrelated or negligible, the media is ignoring it, the drug companies are steaming ahead at full speed, and those who raise a red flag continue to be bullied, censored, and punished. Clearly my life and my wellbeing are not their primary concern. I will not be their next guinea pig in their laboratory. I will not risk being the next “coincidence”.
27.   Although many people have died shortly after getting injected — including perfectly healthy young people — we are not allowed to imply that the injection had anything to do with it. Somehow this is anti-science and will cause more people to die. I believe that denying any possible link, abusing people who speculate that there might be a link, and demonstrating not the slightest curiosity to even explore if there might be a link is what is anti-science and could very well cause more people to die. These same people believe I am obligated to get injected as well. No freaking thanks.
28.   I am repulsed by the religious, cult-like worship of a pharmaceutical product, and will not participate in this ritual.
29.   My “healthcare” provider keeps badgering me to get injected, yet they have provided me no information on this treatment or any possible alternatives. Everything I know I learned from others outside the establishment. Informed consent has become conformed consent. I decline.
30.   I see all the lies, corruption, propaganda, manipulation, censorship, bullying, violation of medical ethics, lack of integrity in the scientific process, suppression of inconvenient adverse reactions, dismissal of legitimate concerns, hysteria, cult-like behavior, ignorance, closed-mindedness, fear, medical and political tyranny, concealment of protocols, lack of true concern for human life, lack of respect for basic human rights and freedoms, perversion of the Torah and common sense, demonization of good people, the greatest medical experiment of all time being conducted by greedy, untrustworthy, godless people, the lack of liability for those who demand I risk everything… I see all this and I have decided they can all have my place in line. I will put my trust in God. I will use the mind He blessed me with and trust my natural instincts. Which leads to the final reason which sums up why I will not get “vaccinated.”
31.   The whole thing stinks.

Inflating the Death Count: A How-to Guide from CDC

The doubts we’ve had about those massive mortality numbers have been confirmed by science – you know, the “follow the science” type of science.

Scientists wrote an article several months ago, ignored by the main stream media and all of CDC/WHO/Dr. Fauci’s followers, showing in some detail an accurate acccountng of Covid deaths as of April 23, 2021. While CDC was saying there were 161,392 deaths based on their new guidelines which included all who were so much as suspected of having a Covid infection, the authors showed that without CDC’s new instructions there would actually have been only 9,684 Covid deaths.

Since there are roughly 8,000 deaths a day in the U.S. from all causes, a total of less than 10,000 in 4 months would hardly constitute an epidemic. Dr Fauci and the CDC, creators of world-wide fear mongering, apparently agreed. To justify their arbitrary fascism, including lockdowns, masks, social distancing, closing schools, bankrupting businessess and citizens, and jailing those who disagreed, but mostly for their own image, they needed hirer numbers of deaths. The only way to get it was to follow the lead of the U.S. Treasury which simply prints the money as it needs. If there were no visible consequences for the Treasury, why not try something similar? On March 24, CDC did just that in an alert that went to all state and local health departments. Henceforth, health deartments were told to list virtually all who died from any source as victims of Covid.

Voila! Problem solved.

As of March 22, 2020, there had been 249 covid deaths.
CDC’s alert to state and local heath departments arrived on March 24.
On March 31, there were 3170 ‘confirmed’ deaths.

And so it went. Today, calculated flu deaths are nearly nonexistent as all cases, which woujxt9096@gmail.comld have been reported in years past, have been reassigned to Covid. Many other causes of death have been underreported leaving us with little abiity to identify and respond to actual emergencies.

Have lockdowns actually worked to reduce Covid transmission? Reasearch has repeatedly shown that the answer is no.

While they haven’t achieved their stated purpose of reducing transmissions, lockdowns have had many other effects. Like producing worse cardiovascular outcomes, deteriorating mental health, a rise in drug overdoses, increases in dementia-related deaths, increased mortality among young adults, and catastrophic learning losses for children.

Another disasterous effect has been our response. Many brave and thoughtful souls in the U.S. and around the world have marched by the millions against the destruction of our way of life, but the massive international events have gone almost entirely unreported by the U.S. media, which seems dead set on proving it’s own irrelevance.

That leaves most Americans, betrayed by the media and Congress, adjusting to life under fascist control, and the thumb of those who probably qualify as socioopaths.

Gene Therapy Vaccine Experiment on Kids

Analysis by Dr.Joseph Mercola (Mercola.com), Fact Checked

In children and young adults from age birth to 19, the survival rate of COVID-19 is 99.997%.1,2 In most cases, symptoms are mild or nonexistent. Among children who were hospitalized, 0.19% of children died from COVID-19, with researchers concluding in a 2021 study, “Hospitalization and in-hospital death are rare in children diagnosed with COVID-19.”

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has had little impact, physically, to children, health officials are setting the stage for widespread vaccination of this population. The University of Oxford, which is collaborating on a COVID-19 vaccine with AstraZeneca, is already enrolling children between the ages of 6 years and 17 years and 8 months in their U.K. vaccine trial.

A COVID vaccine for infants and children is every bit as unnecessary, dangerous and foolish as the hepatitis B vaccine is for infants that I have been railing against for the past two decades.

Moderna is also enrolling 3,000 children between the ages of 12 and 17 to test their COVID-19 vaccine, using the same dose given to adults,5 while Pfizer also expanded its clinical trials to include children as young as 12.6 Johnson & Johnson even announced on February 28, 2021, that it plans to test its COVID-19 vaccine on infants, including newborn babies, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems.

“They did not get into a lot of detail about it but did make it clear they will be pursuing pediatric and maternal coronavirus immunization studies,” Dr. Ofer Levy, a member of the FDA’s advisory committee who reviewed Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine data, told The New York Times.

It’s Gene Therapy — Not a Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine really isn’t a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It’s more accurately an experimental gene therapy, of which the effectiveness and safety are far from proven. During the first six weeks the vaccine was available, more than 500 post-vaccination deaths and nearly 11,000 other adverse events were reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

According to Children’s Health Defense (CHD), professor Dolores J. Cahill, Ph.D., a molecular biologist and immunologist, “expects to see successive waves of adverse reactions to the experimental messenger RNA (mRNA) injections ranging from anaphylaxis and other allergic responses to autoimmunity, sepsis and organ failure.”

Considering that children are at extremely low risk from COVID-19, vaccination offers them far more risk than benefit, and parents may be understandably reluctant to volunteer their children to receive this experimental and unlicensed gene therapy. Public health officials have made it clear, however, that vaccination of children is expected. CHD reported:

Dirty Hospitals, Deadly Consequences

It looked like a crime scene.

As I walked down the hospital corridor to visit an ailing friend, I was struck by the number of rooms with closed doors covered in yellow ‘caution – keep out’ tape. These were rooms housing a patient with a deadly and highly contagious hospital-acquired infection, like MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphlococcus Aureous) or C Diff (C Difficile). Both are caused by easily corrected hospital practices that endanger patients, including a lack of hand washing, contaminated instruments, and unsanitary procedures.

It was a crime scene.

Infections are among the most prevalent and preventable sources of harm to hospital patients, but they are far from alone in the danger they pose.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) first brought widespread attention to the simmering problem of an indifferent and deadly health care system in 1999 with their gently-titled report: To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System. Extrapolating from the handy Medicare database, they estimated 98,000 deaths a year due to infections, medication errors, unnecessary surgeries and other types of hospital and doctor malfeasance. The analysis was based on data from 1984 and is now nearly 30 years old.

Although the authors of the IOM report clearly hoped that the medical-pharmaceutical establishment would use the facts to become less deadly, that has not happened.

Updated information suggests that the actual number of people killed in hospitals might be as high as 440,000 a year, which would make in-hospital care the third leading cause of death in the U.S.

These numbers reflect only deaths among the hospitalized. They don’t include those who are damaged in the hospital but die elsewhere. Nor do they include those who survive their hospital stay but live with injury or disability, which is estimated to be three times the number of deaths.


Further, the estimate fails to reflect the massive amount of under-reporting by hospitals and physicians. An independent investigation of patient records by the Health and Human Services Administration in 2012 identified over whelming numbers of unreported events. It concluded:

… more than 130,000 Medicare beneficiaries experienced one or more adverse events in hospitals in a single month. …. Hospitals report only about 1 in 7 incidents of patient harm.

And this:

An estimated 1.5 percent of Medicare beneficiaries experienced an event that contributed to their deaths,” the [HHS] found, “which projects to 15,000 patients in a single month.”

How does the American Hospital Association defend its constituents? According to their spokesman:

… the last decade of unprecedented cost-cutting and financial instability has impacted all areas of hospital care.

It’s had an effect on infection control and it’s had an effect on [hospitals] ability to recruit and retain workers. It’s had an effect on our ability to invest in new and updated equipment as much as we would like to,” said Rick Wade, spokesman for the AHA.

‘It’s also a question in front of society: How much do you want to invest in high-quality, safe medical care?”

There you have it. You didn’t expect a ‘we’re sorry and we’ll do better’ defense, did you? Don’t expect hospitals to be safe and healthy, they say, if you don’t pay us more and then we’ll give it a shot.

The federal government is waking up to the massive financial cost of doctor and hospital malpractice and doing something about it: It’s docking reimbursement for readmissions to fix reasonably preventable harm, including Never Events, things that should never happen and which are not considered for any type of compensation, including:

Transfusing the wrong type of blood – a Never Even
Secondary operations as a result of leaving equipment inside of a patient during the first procedure — a Never Event.
Air embolism – a Never Event
Post operative infections,
All other infections linked to hospital procedures, such as catheters
Medication errors including harm to diabetic patients
Pressure ulcers (bed sores)
Dislocations, fractures or head injuries caused by falls
Burns and electric shocks to patients

Private health insurers are now adopting federal reimbursement guidelines.

Hospitals may have been happy to ignore malpracrice within their doors as long as they were getting paid to fix the problems they caused, but withdrawing even minimal payment for repairing their damage was simply too much to ask. Lawyers and hospital administrators have taken up the cause, offering advice on how to get around the rules and continue to be fully reimbursed for misconduct. The most popular recommendation is to manipulate records to make it look as though the hospital wasn’t responsible for the damages they caused.

If you’re not a hospitalist, you may not be happy to be asked to change your documentation so that the hospital can get paid more …
Hospitals … will continue to closely oversee physician documentation on Medicare patients.

According to the Journal of Patient Safety, medical and pharmaceutical harm outside of hospitals doesn’t get “tucked into an easily analyzed data base like Medicare.” Total harm, it concludes, is likely to be much more prevalent and severe than scientific studies can substantiate.

It is … probable that medical practice … is actually the number one cause of death and disability in the US.

Consumers Reports analyzed data from hospitals in almost every state and gave composite grades for patient safety for each one. Distressingly, no hospital earned a grade higher than a mediocre 72 out of a possible 100, and most failed convincingly.

Far too many of the most well known hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital, UCLA Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, New York-Presbyterian, and Mount Sinai Medical Center had grades so low that they should probably be closed to safeguard the public.

A number of hospitals throughout the country, including Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, could not be analyzed because they refused to submit the necessary information.

Did you know that the death rate drops when surgeons go on strike?

It is clear that once we are admitted to the hospital, our life is in our own hands. But we are not without resources. Here are some survival tips:

1. Never go to a hospital for a condition that is not an emergency. For scheduled surgery, remember that outpatient surgical centers can do a much better job of controlling their environment and maintaining accountability than hospitals where responsibility for patient care is diffused.

2. Keep track of medications your doctor says you should be taking and what hospital staff wants to give you. Know the dosages and take notes. Medication errors are a serious source of patient injury and death.

3. Try to wean yourself from all pharmaceuticals, which, as their ads are legally obligated to note, are extremely dangerous. Get used to the idea that all drugs are unnatural chemical additions to the human body and, in varying degrees, are all poisons. Herbals, spices, vitamins, and botanicals, as well as your own mind, can be excellent substitutes that can heal you without endangering your life. Do a little internet research, some experimentation, and improve your chances for staying alive and healthy.

4. Make sure that no one touches you who is not sterile. If the nurse puts on surgical gloves and then picks up the remote that you dropped, s/he is no longer sterile and must not touch you until s/he is.

5. Stay as far from medical radiation and other questionable procedures as possible. Make sure you know the reason for x-rays and other measures and how they will affect your treatment. If their only purpose is to satisfy the doctor’s curiosity and will have no effect on your prognosis or treatment, politely decline.

6. Ask questions. Your survival may depend on how much of a pain in the butt you are. Do it with a smile and expect the best.

The only solution to our deadly medical care system is you the patient. According to the Journal of Patient Safety:

The epidemic of patient harm in hospitals must be taken more seriously if it is to be curtailed. Fully engaging patients and their advocates during hospital care and systematically seeking the patients’ voice in identifying harms….

Illegal Immigrants to Receive $4.38 Billion in Stimulus Checks

From:  The Epoch Times

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

As Americans start to receive the latest round of stimulus checks, a new analysis reveals that about $4.38 billion will also go to illegal immigrants.

The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 2.65 million illegal immigrants have Social Security numbers that allow them to receive stimulus checks. This group of illegal immigrants can be described as “aliens temporarily present without status,” according to Steven Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies.

“These individuals are in the country illegally and could be required to leave. Yet, under the current system, they are still given work authorization and Social Security numbers,” he said.

They include Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and Temporary Protected Status recipients. In addition, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued 882,000 work authorizations and Social Security numbers to other illegal immigrants in fiscal year 2020, the analysis states. These include asylum applicants, as well as those applying for adjustment of status and suspension of deportation, among other categories.

Not included in the numbers are the 1.8 million illegal immigrants that the Social Security Administration has estimated use Social Security numbers that don’t match their names, according to Camarota. Another 600,000 have Social Security numbers from when they were legally in the country but overstayed their visa.

“There is simply no question that millions of illegal immigrants will receive billions of dollars in COVID relief checks,” Camarota said. “This highlights an even more disturbing fact—illegal immigrants are being issued Social Security numbers in large numbers. This is a clear indication that America is simply not serious about enforcing its immigration laws.”

Asylum-seekers are routinely given work authorization while they wait for their case to be adjudicated—regardless of the merit of the application. While almost 90 percent of those who claim credible fear when presenting themselves at the border pass the initial screening, less than 20 percent are ultimately granted asylum relief by an immigration judge. For Central Americans, that number is less than 10 percent.

During the last border surge in 2019, the southern border became so overwhelmed that most illegal aliens didn’t even claim credible fear, knowing they’d still be released expeditiously into the United States—especially if they were accompanied by a child. Only about 25 percent of illegal border crossers were claiming credible fear, according to Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, on July 12, 2019.

In Yuma, Arizona, less than 10 percent made the claim, then-sector chief Anthony Porvaznik said on April 17, 2019.

The Coming Covid Vaccine Catastrophe

This article is from Dr Mercola. You can find the rest at his website (see sidebar) identified below.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

As of February 4, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had received 12,697 injury reports and 653 deaths following COVID-19 vaccination.1

Of the cases reported between December 14, 2020, and February 4, 2021, 3.69% were life threatening and the number of deaths account for 5.14% of the total reports. The Pfizer vaccine accounted for 58% of deaths; Moderna’s accounted for 41%.

The “Vaccine” That is an Experiment

“I’m just beside myself with anger over this synthetic gene therapy, this chemical poison, and what they’re doing worldwide,” Mikovits says. “We’re already seeing deaths from this shot. It’s illegal. It shouldn’t be done. It should be stopped right now. It should have never been allowed to happen, yet we see it being forced on the most vulnerable populations.”

That quote is from Dr. Judith Mikovits, the former NIH researcher who has written several best-selling books describing the cesspool that is government-backed research.  You can see the entire article at Dr. Mercola’s website, references in the side bar.

As she explains, the current batch of AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer ‘vaccines’ do not meet the definition for vaccines.  They are really an untested gene therapy with the recipient population substituting for lab rats.  Everyone who dies after receiving the ‘vaccine’ is said to have succumbed to ‘complications of Covid’.

Extending Your Life Expectancy: DIY (Do It Yourself)

The old man was asked to what he attributed his long life. His answer? “I stayed away from doctors.”

As life expectancy falls in the U.S., that is something to consider.

Professional medicine can be life-saving in emergencies, but is questionable, useless, or lethal for an astonishing array of non-emergency diseases, disorders and conditions. A major reason for the catastrophe of modern medicine is the pharmaceutical industry, with its ubiquitous advertising and outrageous consumer prices. Those prices underwrite their generous donations to medical schools and then to underwrite dinners, seminars in attractive locales, speaking fees and other gifts to practicing physicians who have been carefully taught that drugs are the solution for every problem their patients’ present.

In order to keep the largess flowing, medical schools and participating doctors reciprocate by turning into pill-pushers for Big Pharma. It’s an unwritten part of the bargain.

Since the pharmaceutical industry also contributes heavily to the tax-payer owned FDA, almost any new drug can get approval, no matter how dangerous it is. If the FDA was working in the public interest, toxic drugs would be refused approval. Instead, the FDA designates lethal pharmaceuticals by slapping a ‘BLACK BOX’ warning on the packaging. Consumers are never warned when they are being prescribed a deadly drug, and if the medical staff hasn’t been paying attention, they don’t know it either.

And life expectancy falls.

We don’t have to be victims. For those of us who dare to think for ourselves, the alternative is clear and effective: well documented natural remedies.

For example:

1. Do you get migraines? If you take a FEVERFEW capsule every day, they will become a thing of the past. Feverfew is a plant (botanical) that is a cousin of the daisy family. You will think you’ve found magic; and you have.

2. Do you get muscle cramps? That’s because you need more VITAMIN E in your diet.

3. Much breast cancer therapy is a tragedy of misdiagnosis. A type of breast cancer known as ‘IN SITU’ is only found by mammogram, as has been known for years. It’s a tiny spec of cancer that usually goes nowhere, according to the AMA. Years ago it was recognized as a cancer that could be successfully handled by simply monitoring it. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation not required unless it progressed, which seldom happened and was not expected.

The sad part of this story is the frequency with which medical guidelines for ‘IN SITU BREAST CANCER’ are ignored. Since the advent of these guidelines, thousands of women have been operated on and endured chemotherapy needlessly. What’s good for the surgeons’ and the hospitals’ bottom line comes at great cost to women, and unnecessary cost to the health care system.

4. BONIVA, PROLIA, and similar drugs promise stronger bones for older women. Their major side effect is barely mentioned in the ad’s litany of warnings: These drugs destroy the jaw bone and require massive surgery to restore the jaw and teeth. This problem has been known by the drug companies, the FDA, and doctors for years. The drug has continued to be prescribed by millions of doctors for millions of women. The women who end up requiring jaw reconstruction are not notified by their complicit prescribing physicians or their complicit surgeons that their problem was the result of a prescribed drug. In their ignorance they go on taking it, and even wish they’d taken more of it.

These drugs are advertised as being required ‘only every six months’. Remember that any drug’s side effects last as long as the drug does.

5. Do you bruise easily? Catch colds or the flu often? That’s because you need more VITAMIN C, which will also protect you from colds, the flu and who knows what else. Just like Linus Pauling, MD, said, and for which the medical establishment roundly denounced him, vitamin C, taken in large enough doses, is a safe miracle drug. An overdose of vitamin C, meaning more than our body can handle, will give a case of diarrhea. That’s all. It’s never life threatening.

Vitamin C works its magic by protecting the cells of the body from infiltration by bad actors. Anyone can likely take a minimum of 1 gram (1000 mg) a day with nothing but good effect.

High dose Vitamin C, with Vitamin D, is finally acknowledged as a successful treatment for Covid.

6. GARLIC is a suburb antibiotic, blood thinner and more .  Now that penicillin and other routine antibiotics have lost their effectiveness due to over use, garlic never fails. And doctors never prescribe it, maybe because they don’t know.

7. GINGER is one of several herbs that is not only known to combat inflammation but is also an antispasmodic, recognized in ancient and nontraditional healing but never by modern mainstream doctors. It can cure the hiccups and other spastic conditions. Its been known to eliminate the all symptoms of asthma.

8. Women are typically prescribed estrogen for symptoms of menopause, despite the fact that artificial estrogen is known as a cause of breast cancer. There is a natural ingredient that will eliminate those symptoms without the threat of death or any other side effects: BLACK COHOSH, taken in capsule form daily, will solve all problems connected with menopause.

9. Many chronic, unsolvable , conditions are the result of unrecognized ALLERGIES. Since doctors, including allergists, are unlikely to be able to help sort it out, we are on our own. But we can do it, as many others have. See other articles on this site.

10. A great many horrendous chronic conditions are the result of food sensitivities, which no doctor will suspect. We are on our own here also. For help, see other articles on this site.
.
11. Many deaths are being attributed now to ‘complications of Covid’.
In other words, the hospital wants to hide the fact that the person did not die from Covid. It means the hospital used drugs or methods, like ventilators, that killed. When we are told that a person died of ‘complications’ it virtually always means that modern medicine killed him.

12. Many people have been diagnosed with HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. Recently the ideal blood pressure in the U.S. was downgraded to 120/80, from 140.90. That had the effect of opening up a vast new market for drugs. Although there is constant scare talk about the dangers of HBP, have you ever seen statistics documenting that? European doctors rejected the new CDC guidelines. They consider a blood pressure of 150/90 perfectly acceptable. And the blood pressure drugs have life-altering side effects. It’s no wonder that so many people refuse to take them.

I’ve only scratched the surface of highly effective natural remedies. What we should know is that we are not at the mercy of Big Pharma and other actors in the Deep State. Dr.Mercola, see the sidebar on this site, is a valuable reference.

We do not have to contribute to the falling life expectancy.

To extend our lives, we need to stop expecting Big Medicine to solve our problems. We can do it ourselves, and live healthy lives longer.

As the old man said, “I stayed away from doctors.”
