Obama Health Special
Compiled by John S.
Before we had a chance to go to print with
our newsletter, some breaking news came out of Washington D.C. telling
about the new Obama universal health care plan in the United States. Most
Americans are aware that Barry Obama was pushing Congress to the limit to
have his health care plan voted on and signed by him before the August,
2009 recess of Congress. However, prayer and millions of e-mails, letters
and phone calls to members of Congress made even Democratic Senators and
Congressmen take notice and it was agreed that the plan would have to wait
until after recess. This is scaring Barry and his handlers since members
of congress will get an earful from their constituents once they leave for
vacation to their home districts.
I am not going to discuss the financial
cost of this plan which will be astronomical but my focus is on the moral
and ethical parts of this proposal. In order to save time for myself, I
have chosen to include two reports, which will detail some of the issues
in the health care bill.
THE JEWISH TROIKA
wrote the article “The Manchurian Candidate,” I did not pay attention to
the fact that in addition to the American Jews Rahm Emanuel, White House
Chief of Staff, and David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to Barack Obama, there
was a third man, Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, who is a brother of Rahm. He is
deeply involved in writing the health care part of the new bill and
setting forth who will be treated, how much treatment they receive and
deciding when a person is considered too old and not worth medical
I can see that this diabolic move on
behalf of the Obama administration is nothing less than a chapter from the
book “1984” by George Orwell (his real name was Eric Blair) in which this
British Jew wrote about a coming world system that would be a total
dictatorship with no freedom for the individual and where the state had
the right to determine how long a person could live by controlling health
care. The book was written in 1948 and at that time Eric Blair was a
disillusioned Marxist-Socialist who fought in the Spanish Civil War on the
Communist side. It is obvious that Blair was breaking with the Jewish
leadership and in a subtle way wrote about the future in a novel form but
was really telling the agenda of the coming world dictatorship by the
Zionist World Federation. He also wrote another book entitled “The Animal
Farm,” which is a satirical attempt to unmask the corruption in political
circles. Even if Blair was not a Christian and his books are written from
a secular viewpoint, each Christian would do well to read them in order to
understand the coming Antichrist system.
It is no accident that these three
American Jews are now spearheading the destruction of America as we know
it. Their goal is not to help the people but to enslave them. Since I have
lived 23 years of my life in Marxist-Socialist Sweden, I am well qualified
to speak about the new Universal Health Plan that Barry and his handlers
are trying to force on the American people. Let me share some of the worst
points in the Swedish system of universal health care.
People who are deemed healthy enough and in the age bracket 55
years or younger will receive medical attention. But they cannot just go
to any hospital; they have to use the one that is assigned as their
regional hospital which can be several hundreds of miles away from where a
If there is an emergency like an accident, heart attack, stroke,
etc. the person can receive immediate help. But if it is a chronic
problem, they will be given an appointment that might be anywhere from 6
months to a year.
All pregnant mothers are monitored to make sure the baby is
healthy. If doctors think that a baby is deformed or will have some kind
of birth defect, the mother is told to abort the baby. If a child develops
severe physical problems and medical doctors determine that recovery is
not possible, the child will be denied further medical treatment and sent
to a special care unit where they are deprived of water and dead in less
than five days.
The same holds true for adults. If a disease or accident damages a
person to the degree which doctors state that recovery is not possible,
the patient is sent to the “death unit,” where the humane and kind
treatment is “no water.” In Sweden this is accepted as a dignified way to
die without calling it murder.
It is noteworthy that more and more
doctors in the United States are using the “no water treatment” on
terminally ill patients. I have witnessed this several times in hospitals
and only through persistent and forceful protests did I get this treatment
Any person over the age of 55 must have an evaluation by medical
doctors if they are seeking medical help. Treatment will be approved if
the doctors deem that they might have more years to live and a good chance
of recovery. If not, the person is told they are too old and ill to be
treated and sent home.
It is even harder to receive decent
treatment once a person in Sweden reaches the age of 65. My father was 65
years old and had just retired. He had developed cataracts on both eyes
and at the same time was fighting glaucoma. A board of medical doctors
ruled that he should not be treated but be sent home to go completely
blind. Five years later my brother and I were able to help our parents
immigrate to the United States, and as soon as they arrived, we scheduled
Dad for surgery. The operation was a total success and a year later he had
cataract surgery on the other eye. For the next 15 years our father had
great eyesight and was able to enjoy life until he passed away. My father
had no health insurance and my brother and I paid for the surgeries
because we loved him and were willing to sacrifice to help him out.
WHAT BARRY IS PREPARING FOR US
There are several versions of a universal
health care bill pending in Congress, all of them bad. The one thing they
all have in common is less health care for those who are 65 and over,
including those who are deemed to be too sick to have a chance to recover.
When I turned 65 some years ago, I didn’t
necessarily want to enroll in Medicare but I was told I had no choice.
Medicare premiums are taken out of my social security check regardless if
I like it or not. The Obama administration wants to put all private health
insurance companies out of business and force all Americans to be enrolled
in a Universal Health Plan and to have the premium deducted like payroll
taxes whether they like it or not.
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
In most dictatorships there have been
“death programs.” The Soviets had them, the German Nazi regime had them,
and currently China, North Korea and other Marxist-Socialist states have
them. The ruling elite want a life in luxury for themselves and a decent
life for the bureaucrats, police and military to give them an incentive to
fight for the dictator and his gang while they oppress, exploit, abuse and
use the common people excessively. Obama and his handlers are no
exception. They are all rich and live well but talk about “helping
people.” Yes, they are helping people, by “helping themselves” to the
money while keeping the people in slavery.
I have selected two articles that will
address the issue of Universal Health Care. Time is of the essence and I
wanted to put together just enough so that you can pray against this and
contact your Senators and Congressmen and tell them how you want them to
vote. If people will not take action, they deserve what they get. Consider
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm’s brother,
tapped for White House health care policy advisor spot.
By Lynn Sweeton, February 14, 2009
WASHINGTON--While the Obama White House is
searching for a replacement for health czar Tom Daschle, policy work on
health care reform--a priority for the administration--Is ongoing with one
key advisor especially well connected.
The brother of White House Chief of Staff
Rahm Emanuel, Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a noted bioethicist, is advising the
Obama administration on health care reform.
Dr. Emanuel is the Chair of the Department
of Bioethics at The Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health
and a breast oncologist.
Dr. Emanuel is a special advisor to the
director of the White House Office of Management and Budget for health
policy. He told me he is “working on (the) health care reform effort.” He
is “detailed” to the OMB spot and is still officially an employee of the
Until last August, Dr. Emanuel was
commuting between his Chicago home in West Rogers Park and Washington. He
moved to Washington last August after his youngest daughter graduated from
Northside College Prep at Bryn Mawr and Kedzie.
One of three wildly successful Emanuel
brothers (Ari is a Hollywood super agent) Dr. Emanuel also advised the
Clinton White House on health care issues. He is a graduate of Amherst
College, receiving his masters of science from Oxford University in
Biochemistry. His M.D. is from Harvard Medical School. He holds a Ph.D. in
political philosophy from Harvard University. In addition, in 1987-88, he
was a fellow in the Program in Ethics and the Professions at the Kennedy
School of Government at Harvard.
According to his NIH bio, Dr. Emanuel is
“widely published on the ethics of clinical research, advance care
directives, end-of-life issues, euthanasia, the ethics of managed care,
and the physician-patient relationship, Dr. Emanuel’s articles have
appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, Journal of
American Medical Association, and many other medical and ethics journals.
His book, The Ends of Human Life, has been widely praised and
received the Rosenhaupt Memorial Book Award by the Woodrow Wilson
“Dr. Emanuel served on the ethics section
of former President Clinton’s Health Task Force, the National Bioethics
Advisory Commission, and the International Advisory Board on Bioethics of
the Pan American Health Organization. He has been a visiting professor at
the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, UCLA, and Brin Professor
at Johns Hopkins Medical School.”
Ezekiel Emanuel: Deny Coverage to
Elderly and Disabled for the Greater Good
By Kim Priestap, July 26, 2009
Betsy McCaughey brings to our attention
the Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s views regarding universal health care. Dr.
Emanuel is a health policy advisor to President Obama and brother of Obama
Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, so what he thinks may impact all of us. As
Betsy points out, Dr. Emanuel has some very radical views regarding the
rationing of health care. Take for example Emanuel’s comments in a 2008
article in which he says cutting costs won’t be easy:
Vague promises of savings from cutting
waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical
records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’ cost control, more for
show and public relations than for true change.
In other words, these procedural changes
aren’t really change at all. Instead, he thinks we need change in how we
apply health care coverage. As Betsy notes, Dr. Emanuel believes doctors
try too hard to apply the Hippocratic Oath to everyone as equally as
possible, which is what drives up costs. Instead Emanuel thinks we need to
ration basic, guaranteed care to only those who can fully participate in
society. Betsy points out a 1996 Hastings Center article in which Emanuel
This civic republican or deliberative
democratic conception of the good provides both procedural and substantive
insights for developing a just allocation of health care resources.
Procedurally, it suggests the need for public forums to deliberate about
which health services should be considered basic and should be socially
guaranteed. Substantively, it suggests services that promote the
continuation of the polity-those that ensure healthy future generations,
ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and
active participation by citizens in public deliberations-are to be
socially guaranteed as basic. Conversely, services provided to individuals
who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating
citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is
not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. A less obvious
example is guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children
with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason.
So, according to Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel,
health care advisor to President Obama, the elderly with dementia and the
young who have neurological disorders should be sacrificed for the common
good. I can tell you that as a mom to a four year old girl with severe
speech apraxia that prevents her from being able to speak intelligibly,
this scares the living hell out of me. If you have a child with autism,
cerebral palsy, Downs syndrome, or any other neurological disorder or
chromosomal defect that prevents him or her from participating in society
in the manner Dr. Emanuel or the government thinks they should, that
neurological care would not be guaranteed as basic and would, therefore,
not be covered in a government takeover of health care.
Making things even worse, private health
care companies will be driven out of business, so that won’t be an option
for parents with disabled children, either, leaving them with no coverage
whatsoever. This kind of policy would drive up the abortion rate, which
Obama and other liberals want covered as a basic care, as doctors urge
parents go out of their way to screen their unborn babies for any and all
disorders and defects that would not be covered under basic care. If a
child’s disorder is undetected by prenatal testing, what happens when the
disorder becomes obvious after birth? I shudder to think what the
government would come up with then.
Emanuel’s policies would lead to a further
deterioration of our nation’s culture as people begin to look at those
with disabilities as objects that drive up collective health care costs
instead of as individual human beings who have intrinsic value and rights
endowed to them by God.
All that is
necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. When
bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by
one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
