The Media, The Mind, and The Propagation of Lies

A man in New York throws his four year old brother from the roof of their apartment building – killing him. A man pushes another man off a bridge nearly killing him.  A man sets a girl on fire, killing her.   According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 20% of all adult people in the US experience mental illness in any given year…   And 1 in 25 adults experiences severe mental illness in any given year.   That equates to 10 million people capable of severe mental actionable cause, and 44 million potentially falling victim to their mental aberration in any given year.  

And no one seems to find this particular statistic relevant to the cock-eyed craziness that we read about daily from men masturbating on airplane flights, to maga hat eruptions, to the idea that ridiculing someone in a public restaurant is not ‘bullying’.

To the people yet to be victimized, they view it as television, a computer game, something foreign, benign, not of their world.   But to the victims, it can be devastatingly traumatic.

I’m not talking a grope, 36 years ago, or a construction worker saying, ‘nice a**’ forty years ago, that no one even gave a second thought to.  I’m talking about NOW.  Today.  The heinous actions by out of control people who might qualify as ‘mentally ill’.

Define Mental Illness. Interestingly, it is actually quite vague:  

  1. any of various disorders in which a person’s thoughts, emotions, or behaviour are so abnormal as to cause suffering to himself, herself, or other people.

This would apply to just about anyone who hurts another due to their own inability to ‘feel’ outside of self.

  1. a mental condition marked primarily by sufficient disorganization of personality, mind, and emotions to seriously impair the normal psychological and often social functioning of the individual.

This begs the question, ‘what is normal’?  Because according to what is now acceptable, a person may harass, slander, libel, lie, cheat, swindle, threaten, and scream obscenely, and no one considers this behavior – abnormal.  These people freely employ these behaviors and if we challenge this, we are either racist, judgmental, crossing the line of freedom of speech, or a host of other justifications.

According to psychology definitions, normal can be either what is normal for that particular person, as in Kathy Griffin, or normal for society as in …  hmmm?

In other words, normal no longer exists.  All ne need do is use Kathy Griffin as evidence of that fact, and attest to her ability to say, do, and walk freely, and in this regard, there is no abnormal. Except that psychologists assert that 20% of us are ‘abnormal’.

But no one goes to jail for being abnormal or mentally ill, instead, they are ignored because the line or boundary of definition is so vague that should we put away one – we would put away the many.  Really?

But it gets even more interesting.

In 2012, there were just 35,000 people in state mental institutions, and 356,000 in jails who were considered to have severe mental illness.   Roughly 400,000 are incarcerated in some way!  WOW!  Until you measure that to the statistics.   400,000 out of 44 million – less than 1%.   That leaves 43 million 600,000 still on the streets committing their abnormal acts.

Another statistic:  Our prison population is roughly 1.6 million.  Of those 356,000 are considered mentally insane.   25%!   Yet they are not labeled so.  They are not wearing a badge.   And they are not treated as mentally ill.  Why?  Because after the hubrub of the 1950’s enormous failures in psychiatric methodologies, it was determined that there was no cure – nothing was successful.  Nothing.

Not drugs.  Not magic.  Not incantations.  Not hallucinations.  Not talk. Nothing.

And so, they decided to alter the definition of mental illness, ‘what is not normal for the person’, which in reality is so broad that it can encompass – everything is ok!  As in Kathy Griffin.  It is all normal – for her.  If a person has been setting fire to cats all their life, that is ‘their norm’.

While our jail system is undeniably broken, as we are subjected to mass shootings, political propaganda, and devious sexual assault allegations, it is also true that the mentally insane are gaining traction in creating chaos and in instigating division.  It just isn’t coming from where we are led to believe when the media opens it’s mouth and the tongue wags a tale of deception.  The deceit is a tool of brainwashing, of constantly indoctrinating the mind to believe a statement when in fact it is a blatant lie.

And so we are left wit dissemination, the process of digging and churning up the dirt to find what is real beneath the layers of media dung that we have been subjected to for upwards of 60 years!   It takes a strong person to wish to see, and an even stronger person to hold onto the sight.  It ain’t easy.  But then, no one promised it would be – except – the media.

France Charges Marin Le Pen with Mental Illness! Politicizing Psychiatry

France has figured out how to guarantee a political party victory!   Relentlessly attack the opposing parties leader, charge her with the crime of racism when she posts images of ISIS beheading people, concoct a malfeasance charge that could land her in jail, black all her campaign funding right before an election and the piece de resistance – order her to get a psyche evaluation!  The premise for the psyche?  She is Islamaphobic because of her rhetoric regarding immigration.

Marin Le Pen stands to disappear into the bowels of a psyche ward where release is not an option. Where she could be detained and confined for an indeterminent period of time as psychiatrists evaluate her mental stability.

This horror means that a person’s stance on politics is grounds for a mental psychiatric pronouncement. This is not a ‘threat’ this has been ordered by a judge.

We saw the same threat made against Trump by online Liberal Psychiatrists who claimed they could evaluate him without knowing him, but by observing him on television.  Not only did the statements disappear, but the profession was made a mockery by this wholly unprofessional unethical pronouncement.

Has the psychiatric industry gone bonkers?

According to psychiatry.org, a mental illness is likely if:  a person has a change in appetite, a person’s sleep habits change, a person’s mood changes, problems thinking, increased sensitivity, apathy, feeling disconnected, illogical thinking, and the all encompassing – unusual behavior.

And you don’t have to experience all of these feelings – just one or two and you may have a mental illness.

I imagine all these behaviors could be applied to nearly every politician, if not every living person on the planet at some point, including the psychiatrists.   But despite an ethic’s violation, this methodology was attempted against Trump in 2017.  Led by psychologist, John Gartner, his Twitter account reflects his own psychotic fixation with everything anti-Donald Trump.

How did Gartner and others defy Section 7 of the American Psychiatric Association principles of ethics?  They claimed they were not members of that organization and thus not bound by ethics, instead they copped another organization as their grantor, The American Psychological Association.   This association has no ethics clause.  And so their members are free to make any derogatory statement they please without consideration.   The current President of APA is Jessica Henderson Daniel, a vocal opponent of Trump and Trump policies.  As a black woman, her particular passion is empowering young black girls.  And while they have an upcoming conference titled, “Civility”, it would appear that their members feel that civil response is one sided – everyone else needs to exercise this norm – unless of course they are discussing – Trump.

APA’s CEO, Arthur Evans Jr., has also ingratiated himself in the Trump administration’s appointment process by denouncing Gina Haspel as Trump’s pick for head of the CIA.  A black man, he was recognized by the Obama administration for his ‘endeavors’.

In 1964, the same tactic was attempted to bring down Barry Goldwater  when a magazine, Fact, sought to make psychological statements about his mental health claiming he was unfit for office.   The editors included Ralph Ginzburg whose claim to fame was publishing magazines with erotica that ultimately resulted in his conviction by the federal government for violation of obscenity laws.  The other editor, Warren Boroson claimed that the infamous article was actually written by an Israeli, David Bar-Illan.  Goldwater sued and the resulting suit triggered the ethics policy of Section 7 for the American Psychiatric Association.  Both Editors were decidedly – Liberal Democrats.

In 2006, Duke University published an article claiming that 49% of all US Presidents suffered from mental health issues.   Obviously Duke is not a member of the ethics standard given they could not possibly have interviewed any president.  But it is a catch-all commentary that begs – who wasn’t?

Still, the power play remains.  But in this case it isn’t the power play of politicians, it is the god-like self view among some members of the psychiatric and psychology fields who feel they can make an analysis without ever seeing the individual.  And in fact, analyze the psyche of a dead person.  To what end?   Power.  Self greatness.   Self promotion.  Celebrity status.

In the case of Marin Le Pen, it has taken the unprecedented evolution of politicizing opinion as a mental illness…

Their power is very real.  Imagine a psychiatrist arbitrarily making a determination regarding your mental health because you wrote a post on Facebook that they thought was illogical which leads to your incarceration into an institution?

US Healthcare set for a Nationalized System!

Health care in the US is beginning to look like – Canada at it’s worst.  Doctors are retiring en masse, and hospitals are choosing to provide only basic care when the cost for true health seems prohibitive in terms of dollars.

For example, a relative of mine was diagnosed with stage 4 liver and colon cancer in April.   The routine treatment;  remove the tumor in the colon and prescribe massive chemo to hopefully reduce the liver tumors.  Four months later, the tumor in the colon magically reappeared, the chemo had no effect, and the prognosis was grim.   In fact, the doctors basically scratched their heads and said there was nothing more they could do.

His wife was not so easily deterred.  She called up the Mayo Clinic – long waiting list, John Hopkins – long waiting list, and was about to give up when she remembered she had a distant cousin who worked in Administration at Sloan Kettering.  He was admitted that week, saw a surgeon who said no problem, we’ll take care of the tumor, saw an oncologist who put forth a plan of action involving removing the gall bladder so that a tarted chemo device could be implanted to spray the specific liver tumors with chemo.

Their prognosis?  He will fully recover.

Of course now he has to fight his insurance company because they don’t want to pay a dime given the treatment is ‘excessive’ – as in saving his life.

In the meantime, I was advised that my own insurance carrier has the highest mortality rate of any other insurers.  Great!

My own recent experience involved a rash that required an initial consult, a second consult, a third dermatologist, and a fourth conference to tell me there was nothing I could do, it was an incurable disease.   But when I went home and researched my incurable disease, I found a forum that told me exactly what to do – which involved going to the grocery store – 3 days later my incurable disease was gone and has not returned… Imagine that?

My doctor bill?  Just under $1000.  My grocery store bill?  About $9.00.

One in three doctors in the US is over 50, one in four is over 60.  Doctors are not entirely to blame, they have been squeezed by insurance company rules that dictate what they can do, when they can do it, and how much medication they are required to prescribe each month.   They are tired, and they feel they are a failure in their profession because of the dictates imposed on them.

Some doctors have broken the mold and take ‘no insurance’.  Only then are they truly free to ‘practice’ and make perfect.

Within this fray of emotion, many young people no longer feel the desire to even enter the medical field.  The costs are high, malpractice insurance is high, and results are based on insurance company mandates, not on cured patients.

And then of course is the predicament of the uninsured illegal immigrants being given priority healthcare and adding to the neglected ratio.

All of this is a prelude to what was inevitable when Obamacare was passed, a single payer national healthcare system, which was the plan all along.

The concept was written a century ago when it was determined that the way to complete control of a society is through control of their money – creation of the Federal Reserve, control of the markets – so that investments can be manipulated for the uber wealthy and all politicians, control of education – so that the upcoming youth is vacant of truth, history, and facts, and ultimately, control of healthcare – so that the population mandate can be implemented so that the weak are eliminated and only the strong survive.

Health care was/is the last mandate.   Just don’t get sick…

Vaccines – Efficacy and Aluminum Toxicity

The top ten causes of death in children worldwide under the age of five are as follows:

  • Neonatal causes
  • Pneumonia
  • Other (unspecified) conditions
  • Congenital anomalies and other non-communicable diseases
  • Diarrhea
  • Injury
  • Malaria
  • Prematurity
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Measles

The types of vaccines imposed on a child in the US before the age of five include:  Hepatitis B, Measles/Mumps and Rubella, Vericella, IPV, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertusis, Rotavirus, Pneumococcal conjugate, Hepatitis A, Polio, Haemophilus.

  1. Neonatal causes:not vaccinated
  2. Other unspecified:not vaccinated
  3. Injury:Not Vaccinated
  4. Prematurity:not vaccinated.
  5. Congenital anomalies:not vaccinated

That means we are dealing with 5 potential causes of death in children:  pneumonia, diarrhea, Malaria, HIV and Measles.

Diarrhea:  In the US prior to vaccination there were roughly 37 deaths and 55,000 to 60,000 hospitalizations per year (which represented roughly 5% of child hospitalizations), although the CDC always estimates these numbers because real numbers are not available.   The vaccine was made available in 2006.  Between 1993 and 2003, studies have shown that deaths from Rotovirus were cut by 300%.  Blacks and Hispanics had a significantly higher rate of hospitalizations and deaths than whites.

Malaria:   The track of Malaria in the US indicates that most cases are in immigrant men, from Africa or the Caribbean, between the ages of 20 and 50.    The US reports roughly 2000 cases per year.

HIV/AIDS:   There are roughly 8500 cases per year in the US. The number of cases in children under the age of 13 is – zero.  Blacks and Hispanics accounted for 70% of the diagnoses.

Measles:   Measles in the US was eradicated in 2000.  According to an infectious disease expert at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Measles cases and clusters come from immigrants and are referred to as ‘imported cases’.  Despite the fact that the CDC recommends the MMR vaccine at 12 months or younger, they also claim that any child who receives the Measles vaccine at 12 months – will fail to be protected.

Pneumonia:  Predominantly the result of second hand cigarette smoke.  99% of all deaths among children occur in low and middle income countries.  The mortality rate of influenza/pneumonia deaths among children in the US spiked in 1918.   Since then it has dropped roughly 700%, and in fact had dropped 600% before the introduction of a vaccine.

What these statistics reveal is something we have known for centuries;  plagues are introduced by massive immigration and war conditions.  Without exception, historic studies have shown a correlation between the two.  That would mean if we simply vaccinated ALL the immigrants instead of the masses, we would effectively eliminate the disease and the need for vaccines completely.

But they didn’t do that in Europe…  They allowed millions of unvaccinated African natives to enter the EU countries without those precautions, live in close quarters where basic sanitation was not guaranteed or monitored, and spread those diseases like flies on a shoo-fly-pie!

Does that mean that Europe has effectively set itself up for a plague, or multiple plagues, of demonstrative proportions never seen in history before?

The other problem with vaccines that is not routinely vocalized is the fact that they all have a ‘life span’.  Depending on what maker, what dose, what brand, what concoction you received, there is a good chance you are a virtual empty vessel waiting to be impregnated with every disease known to mankind if your particular vaccine was administered 4- 19 years ago.

And if you aren’t scared yet, every disease ‘morphs’ with time and exposure, meaning that the inoculation you received 5 or 7 years ago may have absolutely nothing to do with the strain that is current and present today…  that would include the basics like Measles, like Pneumonia, or basically anything and everything viral.

So if you thought vaccines were a means to population control, consider this:  what if the means was massive viral immigration – like the eradication of most of the American Indians from Smallpox…

Wait!  Scared of the aluminum levels in the vaccines?  Not to worry, you are already getting a healthy dose from the rainfall – compliments of the EPA for – decades.  Not to worry, Aluminum sulfate has been used in our drinking water, muffins, donuts, cookware, aspirin, and salt.  Americans are most at risk for toxicity.  The major ailment associated with long-term aluminum toxicity – Alzheimers.

If you think secondary toxicity is an issue, imagine injecting it directly into the bloodstream of an infant over and over again…

Weather Manipulation: An Opioid Epidemic

In 1976, the UN created a treaty within which 78 countries agreed not to participate in the use of weather modification for hostile or military engagements which would have “widespread, long-lasting, or severe effects as the means of destruction, damage or injury to any other party state”.   States that are NOT party to the agreement would thus be susceptible to whatever military strikes and destruction party states deem necessary.

The parties that did not sign this agreement or signed but failed to ratify, include:  France, Mexico, Croatia, Portugal, Lebanon, Turkey, Bolivia, Holy See, Iceland, Iraq, Liberia, Luxembourg, Morocco, Syria, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Guyana, Thailand, Cambodia, Iran, Haiti, Dominican republic, Bosnia, Montenegro, Myanmar, Laos, Nepal, and ‘most’ of Africa.

What the treaty acknowledged was the fact that weather modification was in existence, had been for some time, and as a result of its scientific breakthroughs, required ‘management’.  The Treaty states that the agreement against hostile use shall not ‘hinder’ the continued use of ‘environmental modification techniques’.

In addition the wording could be legally construed to allow for the use with debates over what constituted; 1.  Widespread, 2.  Long-lasting, and 3.  Severe.

Today, modification is referred to as ‘geoengineering’ and refers to solar radiation management (SRM) and global climate engineering.  Which came first – the chicken or the egg?  In the Geoengineering mantra, it is now unclear if global warming/climate change is a result of natural causes, man causes, or geoengineering manipulation.  Given that the tests have been ongoing for over 70 years, the trial and error factor is not unlike the nuclear tests of the 1950’s.  Let’s wait and see what happens when we nuke our military personnel…  My father was a victim.

Such is the ‘science of weather manipulation’.

Despite denying it existed, the 1976 UN document brings an obvious truth to what was termed a conspiracy theory for decades.  Given that we know that truth is in short supply within these various arenas, it would not be out of the ordinary to  assume that the evolution of weather modification has progressed most infinitely and is in fact utilized quite readily for peaceful purposes, and for management of nations that we feel need to be punished.   Albeit, in a way that might not be construed as ‘long-lasting’ – which has no legal definition.  Therefore, the punishment might be temporal, flooding that will subside, or a heat wave that makes life uncomfortable, except that we are now finding that even the most temporal change has cumulative and domino effects.  

But if no one admits it, if no one party states that they are engaging, the media will continue to claim it is all man-made and we simply need to reduce our ‘carbon footprint’, our gas consumption, our aerosol use, our…

One of the methods of achieving SRM is to inject billions of particles of sulfer dioxide into the stratosphere in order to deflect sunlight and send it back out toward the sun.  It is believed that this technique would cause widespread and localized droughts in either Africa or South America.  This particular methodology is currently inherently funded by Bill Gates and Harvard – the same Harvard and Bill Gates that advocate for massive de- population.

Coincidence?

Much of the initiative is defined as “Experiments” which are conducted in our atmosphere as a hit and miss, maybe, theory that we need to act on in order to determine if it works – and if it doesn’t then we have – consequences.  Like Global Warming and Chaotic Weather Patterns.

Apparently, as a result of these manipulations, scientists warn that stopping the manipulation is like a heroin addict going cold turkey, the likely reaction of the atmosphere would be catastrophic as it went into convulsions and withdrawal.

The problem is there is no corresponding methodone fix!

“If geoengineering were halted all at once, there would be rapid temperature and precipitation increases at 5–10 times the rates from gradual global warming.”x This means that stopping SAI once it had started could be more dangerous than starting it in the first place. Ozone depletion is another important side effect of SAI.

Furthermore, once SRM is deployed, sudden interruption would cause a termination effect, raising temperatures rapidly, creating a situation worse than it was before its deployment. Therefore, SRM will create dependency and captive markets.”

In other words, we created a monster akin to ISIS.  We can’t terminate what was started decades ago because it would send our environment into a cataclysmic state of chaos, so we are stuck.  It is liking weaning off opioids.

Weather Manipulation is an addiction.  So while the scientists that ‘experimented’ us to this place desperately try and claim that it is all man-made and a carbon footprint, the reality is that this same science is actually most likely the base cause of the chaotic eclipse that has morphed into a nanospeed decay of planet earth.

How the particles are injected is the source of argument and conspiracies, instead of the fact that they are injected.   And so, the truth is mushed into a legal advertising morph or play on words.  But the truly sad reality is the fact that we are now addicted to a scientific shitakestorm that began as an ‘experiment’.

There are those who claim that aluminum is one of the stratosphere ingredients in the nanoparticle experiment.

What does aluminum do to our body?
Aluminum is linked to blood disorders, such as hemolysis, leukocytosis and porphyria, as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.  In addition, exposure to this unwanted substance can cause an increase in cavities, as it interferes with bone calcification and competes with fluoride.   Aluminum exposure causes brain oxidation and inflammation – while increasing amounts of the beta-amyloid proteins linked with Alzheimer’s disease aluminum exposure causes brain oxidation and inflammation – while increasing amounts of the beta-amyloid proteins linked with Alzheimer’s disease.

What you CAN DO:  Eat Cilantro by the fresh bunch, crave anti-oxidants, turmeric, purified water, sea salt, avoid processed foods, high doses of vitamin C, garlic and onion. 

So many of us opt to avoid all the vaccines which are rich in aluminum, but if our atmosphere is deluged, it becomes even more of a dominant agenda…

FYI: Don’t forget if they are actively injecting trillions of particle into our atmosphere that means our rain water, our ponds – are the highest concentrate.  Sorry.  Also realize that this means that Trump can not simply alter this course given that the proposed reaction would be severe withdrawals far worse than the current weather chaos we experience today…

EBOLA EPIDEMIC: Cries the CDC

Over 9 million people die in Africa every year out of a population of roughly 1 billion.   The leading causes of death include:   Respiratory infections (pneumonia and bronchitis), HIV, Diarrheal, TB and Malaria which account for over 56%.   The second category includes; Stroke, heart disease and cirrhosis of the liver which accounts for an additional 33%.   The last Ebola ‘epidemic’ that lasted 2 ½ years between 2014 and 2016 caused the death of 11,325, which would represent .05% of all deaths extrapolated – per year.

Yet it continues to be labeled an epidemic, and makes headlines when 2 or 3 people die from an outbreak.   By contrast, the 90%, or 8.1 million deaths that do occur from the above stated causes are ALL preventable.   But they don’t make the headlines.   Why?

After the Ebola epidemic was contained and travel guidance lifted, the CDC issued an advisory stating that there is ‘no risk’ just don’t have contact with sick people or dead bodies…   Good advice.

The current outbreak, which has raised alarms, involves the possible death of upwards of 23 and the potential to infect entire cities given it has traveled from the mostly rural areas to more urban places.   But what the CDC does not highlight in the scare mongering is the fact that Ebola does not spread via the air – but through the transmission of bodily fluids.   Contact must be physical. Therefore to say an entire city of 2-3 million could all become infected and die is rather challenging given every person would have to come into bodily fluid contact with an infected person… remote at best.

Respiratory infection is the most prevalent cause of death in Africa and is more commonly attributed to Strep. Apparently, Strep no longer responds to antibiotics, and therefore a vaccine was created as a preventative measure.

There is a particular strain of Ebola called EboBun for which there was filed a patent by the CDC in 2010.   Which means, the CDC owns the rights to this Epidemic strain.  

In 2013, just prior to the CDC announcing the “Epidemic”, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, Tekmira, announced an Ebola vaccine and with the CDC’s assistance mass marketed the vaccine throughout Africa. The funding for the development of the vaccine came from the US Department of Defense in the amount of $140 million, a drop in the bucket compared to the Obama appropriation of $5.4 billion to ‘fight Ebola’ which was allocated to – the CDC.

The stock price of Tekmira jumped over 280% until it’s production was terminated June 2015 because it was determined the vaccine was worthless and had no efficacy at all.

The following month Tekmira changed its name to Arbutus Biopharma and began marketing HepB drugs and the vaccine in mass productions.   HepB causes liver disease and is transmitted via blood from infected people. It is most prevalent among intravenous drug users, secondarily it is prevalent in prisons and prostitutes.   In 2015, the CDC claims there ‘may have been’ 3370 cases of HepB in the US – an Epidemic.

In 2017, the CDC and by default all doctors in the US, recommended ALL infants in the US receive a HepB vaccine within 24 hours of birth. Three doses are required in order to ‘fully protect’ a person through anti-bodies over their lifetime to prevent a disease that maybe infects 3370 people in any given year who are shooting drug users, and/or drug users who became prostitutes….

The CDC claims the vaccine is 75% effective in infants less than one month old. But given the infant vaccine was not ‘recommended’ until 2017, it is a rather odd statistic to state.   Who did they study? For what period of Time?   Where is this study? Who conducted it?  How can one conduct a study when it prevalence was only indoctrinated a year ago?

The CDC site references WHO as their source for ‘studies’, World Health Organization. However the WHO site shows absolutely no research being done with respect to HepB.   Instead, they list; HIV, Strep, Dhengue, RSV, Malaria, Meningitis, TB, flu and Zika.

An article by The Atlantic, a very liberal MSM outlet, conveys horror that funding for the CDC has not been renewed and may come to an end sometime after 2019.   The article suggests mass deaths, disease, epidemics and chaos because funding for Ebola in Africa, and the H7N9 bird flu pandemic in China could come to an end.

The H7N9 Pandemic occurred in China in 2013 and infected 135 people killing about 30.   According to the article, as of September 2017, a whopping 39 total people had died from the virus over a 4 ½ year period.  

In the US, 2.6 million people die annually from heart disease.   The CDC advocates to spend $130 million each year on research and prevention of heart disease…

The CDC receives NO funding from either China or Africa.  So why are our taxpayer $$$ supporting the healthcare and disease prevention of countries and continents that aren’t ours when those same Epidemic diseases aren’t even on the top 1000 list of major cause of death and yet solicit worldwide vaccination?

Obamacare Healthcare: Breakeven for Insurers!

The Federalist has released a statement that Obamacare insurers are ‘finally’ going to make a profit… because they can ‘finally’ charge premiums that sustain their expenditures. WOW!   Poor babies…

So who are these ‘poor babies’?

Anthem President Gail Boudreaux made $2.2 million, including stock awards, after working 2 months in 2017 (November and December).   The previous CEO stayed on through May and only made $26.4 million in ‘realized pay’.

Molina Healthcare’s new CEO, Zubretsky, who also started in November faired quite a bit better making $19.7 million which included a ‘sign-on bonus’.

Cigna CEO took home $43.9 million including stock gains. Humana CEO had realized pay of $34.2 million.   United has yet to release the data, but figures have fluctuated to as high as $124.8 million.   Kaiser and Blue cross are up for grabs…

As a nonprofit, Kaiser reported Net Income of $3.1 billion in 2016.   United Healthcare reported Net Income $10.82 billion in 2017. And Anthem Blue Cross came in at $2.47 billion Net Income for 2016.

So what the hey?   How is it that these companies are supposedly ‘just now’ making a profit, because that’s a lot of non-profit profit and compensation flying around!

In a world where all healthcare premiums are equal, these CEO’s should be paying monthly premiums of roughly $212,500 to $1,768,000 – conservatively.   Maybe then, they would feel the ‘Burn’…   Because, I don’t think they have a freakin’ clue.

Apparently, this Federalist author didn’t do the math because when I research the Net Income of United Healthcare, it has increased 137% since 2008.   And the CEO’s are living large on 25% increases, 46% increases, and 60% increases in total payout.   So tell me again how the ‘insurers’ are just now breaking even under Obamacare?

Poor babies.

As a comparison, physician salaries and compensation ranges between about $200,000 and $500,000 depending on the specialty – and can obviously be far greater if the physician has spiffs, patents, etc…   But it is still a very far cry from the CEO compensation of ‘Health Insurers’.   Poor babies.

In fact, the equalized monthly healthcare premiums of the CEO’s outstrips the total wage base of physicians! So how is it that these corporations are just now making a profit when in fact they have always made exceptional profits while boasting exceptional wages for the CEO’s and Executives?

It’s a magic act, something like the Wizard of Oz wherein the smoke and blubbering of the media exalts a story that has absolutely no basis in fact.   Unless, we are exalting the “New Math” wherein 2+2 = 1… or 6… or 3, because there is no ‘correct’ answer, because then someone might cry because they were wrong – and opinion over-rules fact, and…

So if Warren Buffet has reported adjusted gross income of $63 million, and we adjust for his offshore accounts let’s bump that to $200 million, then his health insurance liability should be $2,833,333 per Month!   His Income Tax liability should then be 37% or $6,166,666 – per month!   Sounds fair – right? 

Do you think the ‘health insurer’ would lower its monthly premium if it was income based?   I think there would be a LOT of pressure, and a massive change.   Imagine!   

Immigrants and Assisted Living – A Crisis Unfolding

The New York Times has just released an article that provides a liberal view of why we need immigrants in the US, ie, in order to take care of the aging population.   Sort of like the slave trade, only different because they will be paid minimum wage.   The basis for this argument stems from the fact that we have a shortage of medical personnel, most specifically, nurse assistants.  But as usual, The New York Times has completely missed the relative point.

In the US, a Certified Nurse Assistant is trained according to a rigorous education that lasts about 75 hours, or 2-4 weeks.   The average pay for a CNA in a hospital is $11.68 per hour which equates to roughly $23,000 per year.   Immigrants are the primary source of labor for these jobs, and the nursing industry is claiming to be paralyzed as shortages grow out of fear of Trump’s immigration program.

The industry considers fast food restaurants to be their greatest competition for employees.   Given there are generally no benefits, native born Americans aren’t willing to work these grueling jobs at minimum pay. Instead, over 1.8 million immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, Somalia and Honduras fill the gap, many speaking broken or no English.   Most are on Federal welfare programs, including food stamps and Medicaid.

But the real crisis is only just beginning, and it isn’t so much about immigrant slave labor as it is about the looming shortage of affordable nursing care facilities.   In 2013 the average cost of a nursing home was a staggering $81,000 per year for a ‘semi-private’ room.   Think Medicare will pay for it? Think again.

Medicare is broken into definitions of care.   They will pick up 100 days of convalescent care, and up to 60 days of physical therapy.   Some nursing homes take Medicare, most don’t.

Facilities that were taking Medicaid are finding their liability is high, their labor is less than stellar, and their land is more valuable than the business.   Private facilities start at around $6500 per person per month in Colorado.   And the only way to find a state facility through Medicaid is to be relieved of all your assets excluding $2000, while the remaining stay at home spouse may have assets totaling a whopping $116,000.   A house? Not allowed unless it is worth less than $116,000.

Baby Boomers are coming of age.   Only a small proportion will have the resources to fund a private facility stay, the remainder will become a burden on their children. The immigrant CNA workforce picking up the labor shortage in Private and Medicaid facilities will not affect the real problem because their value is minimal in terms of cost.

Today there are over 46 million US citizens over the age of 65.   There are 28,000 assisted living facilities housing roughly one million residents.   The average age of residents is between 75 and 83 and the majority are women.   Facilities are broken down into various definitions, including; independent living, assisted living, critical care, and Alzheimer care.

You want to fix the problem? You have to correctly identify it.  Immigration has been justified by Liberals not from a position of compassion and love, but as a means of propping up an aging population in need of slave labor and social security tax revenue. In Europe, it is far move prevalent as the birth rate has plummeted for decades.   The fact that the immigrants in these countries prove to be more of a financial and cultural burden than benefit, has yet to be addressed given it is not ‘politically correct’.

The only other means of mitigating this coming crisis is to cut down the aging population, through disease or war, or both.   But the grisly reality is it has absolutely nothing to do with compassion and everything to do with an agenda, a need, and a looming disaster about to spiral out of control.

NHS: The UK’s Crisis of Funding?

NHS – when something is broke, just throw more money at it and hope it goes away…   Britain’s NHS is once again afire despite another round of ‘additional funding’ on top of the ‘additional funding’ it already received, over the funding and ‘additional winter funding’ it received.   Socialist medicine at it’s finest!

As if the Canadian socialist health system wasn’t enough to give us a view of how bad it can be, NHS in Britain and Wales is desperately trying to prop itself back up, not with an overhaul of the problems, but with more $$$$$$$! Cha-Ching!

A shortage of doctors and nurses, cancellation of thousands of non-urgent operations, a budget in shambles, neglect charges, hospital acquired infections, a postcode lottery, cost effectiveness of care, the issuance of a ‘black alert’ wherein it is an official admission that it is unable to cope with demand, and the fifth largest employer in the world, NHS is beyond a simple injection of ‘more money’ and needs a drastic face, eye and body lift to survive.

When it was first introduced in 1948, the budget was 248 million pounds for 480,000 hospital beds. In 2017, its total budget was just under $125 billion for 167,000 hospital beds.   As of 2007, the waiting list stood at 1,283,100.   Various political bents try and under-report the budgetary needs so as to prop up the remaining idealism of socialist medicine only to find their proverbial foot in mouth disease when reality is declared. The truth told, NHS is failing because it is a socialist-welfare system and as such it doesn’t work.

It is the fear that plagues most Americans as we watch our own socialist Obamacare fry a bit more each year. My annual healthcare costs amount to roughly 20% of my income. Of course those receiving free healthcare, government employees, and even those on Medicare, seem oblivious given the ‘it doesn’t affect me’ syndrome.

Arguments still abound as the philosophical debate over whether Obamacare is Socialism or Socialized Healthcare or a mashed capital system don’t “fix” the problems.   The media would liken the increased number of participants on the Obamacare Exchange as proof positive it is a success! But of course, when the Exchange is the only source for obtaining Healthcare, that would likely ‘increase its use’… Right?   Logic still prevails even when the media attempts to speak in tongues

Like most Socialist initiatives, when they are first rolled out, when every I is dotted, they seem to work rather well, that is until reality fades in and out only to take hold at some point of time in the near future. Such was the case for NHS.   Welfare creates a behavior attitude. When something costs less or is ‘free’, more people will take advantage of that offer whether they need it or not. That increased usage drives up costs that must now be propped up by premiums and/or government subsidies.

In the US it is passed on through premium rate hikes. In the UK it is passed on by greater indebtedness by the government. Simple economics – when the government is tasked with funding more welfare, either some other program is cut, or taxes are hiked.   Getting people who have been given something free to say they will suddenly pay their fair share – is nearly impossible. Once the propaganda has been injected into the system, it can rarely be purged.

France has been touted as having one of the best systems in the world. How? By eliminating the middle man, the insurance industry, France has created a universal system in which the government acts as the insurance agency. This would be much like the Social Security system in the US that works so well… Except that it doesn’t.   So what went wrong?

Demographics.

France, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, etc… have all experienced a negative population growth that stands to create dire problems in the next decade as the youth market has vanished.   This same shift will ultimately put immense strife on these healthcare systems as the aged pay nothing for healthcare and the youth population is insufficient to prop up healthcare.   In France, wages are taxed a 13% surcharge for healthcare. In the US that would mean a person earning $45,000 would see an automatic $5850 deduction from their pay whether they went to the doctor or not.

The once sweetheart of healthcare, France, is watching its system flail, falter and go broke.   Germany too is being weighed down – not just from a shifting demographic, but from the adjunct of immigrant healthcare.   The unemployment rate in France is 9.7%, with 6.2% underemployed. The youth unemployment rate is far worse at over 21%.   The numbers do not include immigrants not granted employment status or citizenship.   For example, The Netherlands now requires seven years residency before a person may file for naturalization.   Germany is 8 years and France is five years.

Therefore, the unemployment rates are skewed and far higher than reported.

The UK is already operating on a 40-58 billion pound annual deficit.   Where exactly should the additional money for the failing NHS system be extracted?   And with the added pressure of the EU Commission aligned with Merkel and Macron demanding BREXIT divorce costs upwards of $53 billion and counting, it is a difficult notion to address exactly how the UK proposes to mitigate these issues.

It’s complicated.

The understatement for every political agenda and person that exists today.   Putin recently made some comment that how the system works is completely contrary to what we are led to believe. The innuendo would be that what we see, what we believe, is basically a house of mirrors.

Not necessarily far-fetched, but most definitely not mainstream.   Mainstream would have us believe that everything they say is the Gospel, everything they do – is Christ’s walk – and everything they think – is God’s journey.   It is a far far craggy path – but it is nothing per nothing – that they would have us believe. It is far greater. Far more beautiful. And far more carved in stone.

There is nothing more challenging than betrayal. Whether it be from a colleague, a friend, a spouse, a blood relative, it is something that weights incredibly heavily on the heart and soul.   I have had the privilege of bearing such weight.   From multiple sources.   And each time, I feel it anew, as though I have never experienced it before.   And although it is a part of my history, each time, it devastates me, takes me, and I feel its ravage. And each time, the perpetrator feels privileged, entitled to their war, all the while proclaiming their devout affinity to peace, love and compassion.

How can that be?

Ozone Hole is Shrinking? Because…

The Ozone Hole is shrinking – according to Scientific reports released in 2016! In fact, it appears that the main reason it is shrinking is because of the natural global temperature changes, ie, warmer temperatures in the polar regions cause the hole to shrink and rising temperatures in the stratosphere also play a significant role. This would indicate that over thousands of years as the earth’s temperatures rise and cool, holes develop and disappear as a common reaction. According to NASA.

Of course, the MSM would liken the decrease to the Montreal Protocol which called for the decreased use of CFC gases such as those coming from spray bottles…   However, there is absolutely no evidence to support this theory, instead scientists are pointing to the natural occurrences of global weather shifts as the most significant contributing factor.

According to ‘climate predictions’, the hole was slated to return to its 1980’s size sometime between 2050 and 2070.   However, as of 2017 it is already its 1988 size, once again proving that science is at best – a theory.   The Montreal Protocol which was signed in 1987 and initiated in 1989, was only sporadically implemented across the globe, had multiple phase out time frames, and did not include HCFC’s until 2015 when the Ozone Hole had already dwarfed in size.   In addition, not all countries banned the use of CFC’s; China, India and South Korea still proliferate their use.

Du Pont began producing hydrofluorocarbons as an alternative to the phasing out of CFC’s. However, it was later discovered that these HFC’s contribute to Global Warming and they became the target of the Kyoto Protocol which sought to ban their use worldwide  Unfortunately, they had already become mass produced and were a market source around the globe. So, a lean period was initiated in which phase outs were established to be in full force as of 2020 for developed countries and 2030 for developing countries…

But the phaseout hasn’t happened. In fact, the largest producers include; Coca-Cola, DuPont, Honeywell, ThermoKing and Carrier Transicold. Problem? Of course, the alternatives that have been put in service to phaseout the HFC’s are also now considered unsafe… But they haven’t been banned because there really isn’t an alternative that has been created that is considered ‘safe’ although everything is delisted via a Climate Protocol so as to create a phaseout sometime in the future – maybe in 3 or 4 decades… but in the meantime we’ve already discovered that the natural variation in climate is fixing the problem without Scientists involvement.

Gee Whilakers!  Bottom line?

We have replaced the CFC’s that were thought to have ‘caused’ the Ozone Hole with a number of alternate compounds including HFC’s and HCFC’s and R’s and Q’s galore, only to discover that all the alternates are also causing Global Warming and the depletion of the Ozone layer, only to find that everything is super-naturally fixing itself – anyway!

Whew!

I’m sure glad Science fixed all those problems for us!   Cause I sure don’t know w hat we would do otherwise…

 

In the meantime, not to be left out of the loop of god status, the EPA announced in 2015 that they were going to call for a phaseout of all HFC’s as a part of Obama’s Climate Change Plan of Action. I guess they didn’t get the memo that the Ozone Hole was already fixing itself.   In the meantime, a report issued by the UN in 2016 stated that HFC use in ALL countries across the globe is expected to rise significantly over the coming decades averaging about 16% per country.

 

I guess NO ONE got the memo. But hey, the Ozone Hole continues to contract. FYI: the UN has an Ozone branch whose purpose is to study Ozone and to ask pretty please will everyone voluntarily reduce useage…
