Hillary Clinton uses an ambulance van

Remember this pic of Hillary Clinton in this strange mismatched outfit at a Cher-hosted fundraiser on August 21 in Cape Cod?

I jokingly called her outfit a hospital gown. (See “Hillary Clinton wears hospital gown at Cape Cod fundraiser”)

It turns out there’s much truth to it.

Take a look at the vehicle Hillary uses:

On April 20, 2015, Ronnie Schreiber of The Truth About Cars wrote about Hillary’s reliance on the bubble-top van since as far back as her campaign for the U.S. Senate.

Hillary’s first bubble-top van was a GMC van used in her campaign for the U.S. Senate seat from New York state. When she was secretary of state, she used a taxpayer-paid bulletproof version of Chevrolet’s Explorer Van.

But wait!

What if Hillary’s bubble-top van were painted white instead of black?

It’s an ambulance van!

Feds Must Respond to Lawsuit Claiming IRS “Peeping Toms” Raided Health Records

I must admit I haven’t heard about this lawsuit. I’d have done more homework on this article and lawsuit yet I’m working this weekend. Just thought I’d put this out 1) because it’s interesting as to what Obama’s IRS stooges have been accused of doing, and 2) to see if others might know more about this case.

irs

From Hollywood Reporter: More than three years ago, a mysterious company filed a mysterious lawsuit against “John Does 1-15” with a pretty outrageous claim. The lawsuit alleged that the IRS raided the company on March 11, 2011, and that agents in the course of an investigation of a former employee stole more than 60 million medical records of more than 10 million Americans. 

“After being put on notice of the illicit seizure, the IRS agents refused to return the records, continued to keep the records for the prying eyes of IRS peeping toms, and keep the records to this very day,” stated a complaint that was originally filed in San Diego Superior Court before being removed to federal court. “The records may concern the intimate medical records of every state judge in California, every state court employee in California, leading and politically controversial members of the Screen Actors Guild and the Directors Guild, and prominent citizens in the world of entertainment, business and government, from all walks of life.”

It was also alleged that IRS agents searched “intimate parts” after seizing records.

The raided company at the heart of the lawsuit was later revealed to be Three Rivers Provider Network in Chula Vista, Calif., a national health network, and the lawsuit caught the attention of Congressional Republicans. But the case was paused because the Justice Department told the court it was tied to the criminal prosecution of Blaine Pollock, who founded the company and was charged with false statements on an individual tax return and aiding and assisting false statements on a corporate tax return. 

According to a review of his case, Pollock took a plea and was given a judgment of time served and a fine of $350,000.

But now that the criminal case is over, the federal judge overseeing the civil one lifted the stay on Thursday and ordered the defendants — in particular, a special agent named Gabriel Kornacki — to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint within the next 30 days.

As a result, a lawsuit from that “John Doe Company,” which is attempting to represent “10 million citizens across the country, including many of the Judges of the Superior Court of California, their family, their clerks, their court employees, the members of the Screen Actors Guild, the members of the Directors Guild of America, and the players for Major League Baseball,” is live.

The plaintiff, represented by attorney Robert Barnes, is asserting a violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, specifically an unlawful search, seizure and invasion of privacy. The relief sought is an injunction on sharing of records, a return of records and compensatory damages in the amount of $25,000 per violation per individual.

This lawsuit may go nowhere, but the government’s response will be provided once it comes.

The collapse of Obamacare in 2 maps

The plan is working: Obamacare is the route to single-payer or nationalized health care.

Here are two maps showing the collapse of Obamacare from 2016 to 2017, as insurance carriers drop Obamacare, increasingly leaving people with only one carrier.

So much for Obama’s empty and false promise that under Obamacare, we would keep our medical insurance and our doctor(s), and our insurance rates would actually drop.

It’s all Voodoo BS.

Dr. Drew’s TV show cancelled, 9 days after he raised concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health

A month to the day after she said on camera to a reporter that “Obama is gay and Michelle is a tranny,” Joan Rivers was pronounced dead from a routine endoscopy. (See “RIP – Joan Rivers”)

Now it’s Dr. Drew Pinsky — board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist, and media personality who has a TV talk show called Dr. Drew On Call on HLN.

On August 16, 2016, Dr. Drew broke ranks with the MSM’s lockstep denial of the many disturbing signs of Hillary Clinton’s health problems. In an interview on KABC 790AM’s McIntyre In The Morning, Dr. Drew called the symptoms displayed by Hillary “bizarre” and said he’s concerned about the antiquated level of health care she’s receiving, especially the anti-coagulant Coumadin she’s prescribed.

Asked about Hillary’s health, Dr. Drew said:

“The fact is she released her medical records some time ago, and if you listened to my show last week, I just called a friend of mine, Dr. Robert Heisinger, who is an excellent internist pulmonologist. We just dispassionately sat and evaluated the medical record that she had released, and based on the information…her doctors have provided, we were gravely concerned, not just about…her health, but her health care…. Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care that she was receiving, we’d be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge — we’ll be laughed out. She’s receiving sort of 1950-level of care, by our evaluation. So here’s the basic facts, and by the way, before I launch into it, and if your saw the New York Times this morning, the science section, a front-page article about the so-called Goldwater Rule for psychiatrists being urged from an ethical perspective not to ‘psycho-analyze’ political figures — people that they don’t have a chance to evaluate. I would put in that…this thing needs to change — it may be even our ethical obligation to evaluate leaders. There’s a giant difference between psychoanalzing somebody and looking at medical symtoms that are apparent as a result of people’s behavior.”

Next, Dr. Drew defended Donald Trump, arguing against the KABC host who said Trump is a malignant narcissist. Dr. Drew said that children of malignant narcissists flee and don’t want to be around them, but Trump’s children don’t flee from him and are “well put-together”. Dr. Drew does concede that Trump may have hypomania, given his speeches, his tireless energy, and his getting and needing only 4 hours of sleep a night. But Dr. Drew says hypomania may be exactly what we want from a president. Then Dr. Drew returns to the subject of Hillary’s health:

“So we took a look at her record, and here’s the basic fact — she had two episodes of what’s called deep venous thrombosis. Common problem: blood clots in the leg. She also has hypothyroidism and she’s being treated for hypothyroidism with something called armour thyroid, which is very unconventional and something that we used to use back in the ‘sixties (1960s). And both he and I went, ‘Hmm, that’s weird.’ And by the way, wow, armour thyroid sometimes has weird side effects. Oh well, okay, she’s on Coumadin. That’s weird, because Coumadin really isn’t used anymore. Now we use Eliquis or Xarelto, or things like that. I’m assuming a presidential candidate would get one of the newer anti-coagulants. Then she falls, hits her head, as a complication of that, something called a transverse sinus thrombosis. This is an exceedingly rare clot. I’ve only seen one of these in my career, which is a clot in the collecting system for the cerebral spinal fluid, and essentially guarantees that somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system. Well, she’s had two clots, a transverse sinus thrombosis. What’s wrong with her coagulation system? Has that been evaluated? And oh, by the way, armour thyroid? Associated rarely with hypercoagulability! So the very medicine the doctors are using may be causing this problem, and they’re using an old-fashioned medicine to treat it. What is going on with her health care? It’s bizarre.”

Later that day, KABC deleted Dr. Drew’s interview from its website.

On August 25, 2016, 9 days after Dr. Drew’s KABC interview, HLN, the sister network of CNN, cancelled Dr. Drew’s TV show.

Such is the long arm of Hillary Clinton, who isn’t (yet) elected President. Imagine what a President Hillary would do . . . .

Syphilis increases by a stunning 232% among homosexual men

The alarming headline on yesterday’s Drudge Report says:

Syphilis soars . . .

When you click on the embedded link, it brings you to a Guardian story titled, “Syphilis is on the rise when it should be confined to history“.

But both headlines are deceptive.

A more accurate headline should be:

Syphilis soars among homosexuals

Scene from a gay "pride" parade

Scene from a gay “pride” parade

Verity Sullivan reports for The Guardian, Aug. 24, 2016, that infection rates of syphilis, the disease caused by the bacterium Treponema Pallidum and passed on through unprotected oral, vaginal and anal sex, are sharply rising in the UK.

According to the 2016 Public Health England (PHE) syphilis report, while rates of syphilis in heterosexuals remain stable, men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 90% of all syphilis cases in 2015, with a 232% increase in diagnosis over the last five years. More than half of the homosexual men diagnoszd with syphilis in 2015 were also infected with HIV, as well as a separate STD (sexually-transmitted disease), e.g., gonorrhea.

All this is happening despite safe sex campaigns, targeted prevention efforts, and free and accessible sexual health care.

Experts try to explain the sharp rise in syphilis among homosexual men with the following:

  • Higher numbers of partners, i.e., rampant promiscuity, is “a key reason”.
  • Use of apps such as Grindr, venue based and group sex.
  • The reported increased use of Chemsex (recreational drugs used during sex), which lowers sexual inhibitions and makes the likelihood of using a condom less likely.
  • “Sero-sorting” – when men choose partners who have the same HIV status, in theory negating the need to use a condom. However, this puts both partners at high risk of contracting a plethora of STIs.

London is the epicenter of syphilis:

  • In 2015, London accounted for 56% of all cases in England.
  • Since 2010 the number of cases of syphilis in Londoners has increased by 163%, with a 22% increase in the year from 2014 to 2015.
  • The borough of Lambeth has the highest rates, closely followed by the City of London and Southwark.

Verity SullivanAsking what is to be done, The Guardian reporter Verity Sullivan gave a typical liberal PC knee-jerk response, advocating more and better sex ed in schools, proposing “further study” of “the complex background to increasing rates” of STDs “in high risk groups” (although she had just explained the reasons why), and blaming the “massive budget cuts” faced by “sexual health and homosexual support services”. Her conclusion, once again, is more government:

“Responsibility is now on the government to ensure the needs of some of its most vulnerable populations are being met.”

No, Ms. Sullivan. The explanation for the sharp 232% rise in syphilis among homosexual men is this:

Homosexuality is a psychological and spiritual disorder. Sodomists are severely disordered men because the anus is not designed for sexual penetration.

Hillary Clinton wears hospital gown at Cape Cod fundraiser

Hillary for Hospice 2016

Stung by pictures of her showing strange bulges under her coat-jacket suggestive of a defibrillator vest, Hillary Clinton is turning to even roomier, more capacious clothes.

This is what the Sick Old Woman wore last Sunday at a campaign fundraiser in Cape Cod — a hospital gown.

The lucrative fundraiser was hosted by the 70-year-old pig, Cher, which netted the Sick Old Woman more than $1.5 million. Approximately 1,000 people attended the “summer celebration” event at the Pilgrim Monument & Museum in Provincetown.

Meanwhile, another video has surfaced of Sick Old Woman having a mid-speech brain freeze:

Rising of patients seriously hurt by NHS blunders: More than 6,000 incidents were recorded last year

NHS

From Daily Mail: A patient is treated by the NHS every 90 minutes following a serious medical blunder. More than 6,000 incidents involving accidental cuts, punctures, perforations or haemorrhages were logged last year – three times the rate of 2005.

Campaigners say that poor training and inadequate staffing levels explain the mistakes. Senior doctors have warned the cash-strapped NHS is heading into an ‘extremely difficult autumn’. Hospitals have been told to cancel thousands of non-urgent procedures. The medical blunders make the financial pressures worse by extending hospital stays and encouraging compensation payouts.

The figures released earlier in the week reveal 6,082 incidents of patients needing NHS treatment following a blunder in English hospitals last year.  This compares with 2,193 ten years ago, according to NHS Digital, the official health statistics unit. The bill for compensation stood at £1.48billion last year, a 27 per cent increase on 2014, accounts for the NHS Litigation Authority show.

Katherine Murphy of the Patients Association said: ‘With all the systems and procedures that are in place within the NHS, how are such basic, avoidable mistakes still happening? It is a disgrace that such incidents are increasing. There is clearly a lack of learning across the NHS, or even within individual trusts. These patients have been very badly let down by poor processes and utter carelessness. We call for the Government and Royal Colleges to take steps to address this alarming rise.’

Andrew Goddard, registrar at the Royal College of Physicians, last week warned that a funding and staffing crisis is putting huge pressure on doctors. ‘Physicians are facing rota gaps, consultants acting down into trainee positions, inability to recruit to posts in key specialties due to a lack of trainees, and difficulties in covering day-to-day services,’ he said. ‘We’re heading into an extremely difficult autumn.’

The Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health has also warned of staffing shortages, raising concerns that children’s care is ‘increasingly compromised’.

nhs

The paediatric workforce is at ‘breaking point’ it said in a report, with more than half of units failing to meet staffing standards. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has repeatedly called for a new culture of transparency to increase safety in an era of fewer resources.

Last year he launched what he called a ‘reformation’ in the culture of the health service, claiming he wanted to make British people the ‘most powerful patients in the world’.

He encouraged every member of staff – from cleaners up to consultants – to blow the whistle when they see evidence of poor care, in a bid to halt the annual toll of 10,000 avoidable deaths in English hospitals.

Mr. Hunt has repeatedly urged doctors to take the same approach to safety as the aviation industry. He has pledged that those who own up to blunders will get legal protection – the same system as that used among airlines.

NHS staff will be protected from prosecution based on their own evidence although they could still face sanctions if guilty of malpractice or negligence.

The new system involves the creation of the independent Healthcare Accident Investigation Branch, which starts work this autumn.

Safety campaigners said the first thing the unit must do is launch a review of why problems are rising so fast.

Peter Walsh, of the charity Action Against Medical Accidents, said more complex procedures and better reporting of incidents may partly explain the rise, but would not account for the figures trebling. He said: ‘I suspect inadequate staffing and increased pressure at work are also factors.

I also know there is a lot of concern among surgeons that the training they get is not as thorough and adequate as used to be the case. There is not as much time spent on technical skills. Of course it is a known risk of surgery that these things happen, but that doesn’t make it OK and much of the time they are really bad errors that are perfectly avoidable.’

One of the most common mistakes we hear of during laparoscopic surgery is perforation of the bowel. This is very, very serious and can be fatal if not repaired very quickly. The increase in incidents is very worrying and there needs to be an investigation to get to the bottom of it.
