Lone shooters, terrorism, and semantics

This is a big one. It’s so big, in fact, that many people will want to turn their backs on it and pretend it doesn’t and couldn’t exist. But it’s real. It does exist.

No killing of innocent people can be called a “negligible statistic.” But what label do you apply when an entire government stands by and does nothing, while millions of people die?

A supposed lone shooter motivated by political ideology kills 20 people, and this is called a terrorist act. But what category do you apply when a government enables a monopoly that destroys millions of lives?

Don’t bother seeking answers from the mainstream press. They play dumb. They pretend to be clueless. They avoid these millions of deaths, as if they’re not worthy of news coverage.

Doesn’t that sound strange? The press, which constantly sniffs the air for stories that will rouse public interest, ignores a force that is routinely killing millions of people. Why? Because that very force pays huge sums of money to the press.

So let’s start here, with one of the most shocking mainstream reviews ever published in a medical journal. The date is July 26, 2000. The journal is the Journal of the American Medical Association. The author is Dr. Barbara Starfield, a respected and revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Impeccable mainstream credentials up and down the line. Starfield’s review is titled, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?” She concludes:

The US medical system kills 225,000 people a year. 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved medical drugs, and 119,000 deaths as a result of mistreatment and errors in hospitals.

Extrapolate those numbers out to a decade: that’s 2.25 MILLION deaths.

In an email interview I did with Dr. Starfield about a year before she died, I asked her whether the US government had undertaken any overall program to remedy this ongoing catastrophe, and whether anyone from the federal government had contacted her to consult on such a program. To both questions, she answered: NO.

Keep in mind that the US federal government, through agencies like the FDA, the CDC, and their parent agency, Health and Human Services, has extensive power over the US medical system. In fact, the FDA, through its routine manipulations and regulations, assures that the conventional mainstream medical system in America remains top dog; and competition from what has been called alternative or natural health is reduced as much as possible. It might interest you to know that, when a pharmaceutical company wants the FDA to review a new drug and certify it as safe and effective for public use, the pharmaceutical company pays a fee to the FDA. Dr. Starfield pointed this out to me. Therefore, in a real sense, the FDA works FOR drug companies.

I mention all this to make sure you understand that the federal government could, if it wanted to, undertake a sweeping investigation of the US medical system, from top to bottom, and face up to the ongoing of tragedy of millions of lives lost. The federal government could come down mightily on the medical system and do everything possible to eradicate this holocaust.

But the government doesn’t. It doesn’t do that. It stands by while millions die. Year after year after year.

I could cite other findings that back up Dr. Starfield’s published analysis, and I have, in other articles. Here, I’ll keep it simple. The government is entirely culpable.

Occasionally, I receive an email from a reader that goes this way: “I showed a friend your article and he said, what about all the lives the medical system saves? Why doesn’t Rappoport factor those in?”

To which I offer this. Suppose you created an invention—let’s call it X—which, for the sake of argument, we’ll assume saves many lives. But you also notice it kills many people—2.25 million people per decade. Would you simply stand back and assert that, on balance, you’re doing a fine job? Would you? Or would you do your very best to eliminate all those deaths, which are occurring as a result of your X? To put it another way, would you seek to be humane, or would you be a vast criminal?

As I started out, above, no killing of an innocent person is a negligible statistic, whether you call it an act of terrorism or something else. But what do you call it when the awesome power of an entire government is silent and passive, for decades, while the very monopoly it is enabling destroys millions of lives?

Depraved indifference? Negligent homicide? Manslaughter?

I call it mass murder.

    The follow up question should not be “What about the people that the medical systems saves?”, but rather… In addition to the 2.25 Million that they’ve flat out killed, how many additional people are permanently injured or suffering daily from inappropriate intervention.

    I spent two weeks this year observing an ER of a prestigious hospital system on the East Coast. Here are a few excerpts from my nightly notes…

    The hospital employees all have a bright orange sign on the bottom of their name tag that reads “preventing the flu, 2018 -2019”, that they receive once they get their flu shot. Walking around the hospital you can instantly see all those in compliance. Hospital management boasted about near 100% compliance this year. Those not in compliance either loose their job or get ridiculed.
    I got a bunch of shit (teasingly), in a passive aggressive way, about not getting a flu shot from the hospital management. You can tell that the bright color badges that staff is compelled to wear is for the purpose of getting total buy-in from the entire medical staff. Hard to question vaccines, or consider childhood vaccine injury when you’re wearing the equivalent of a cub scout patch proclaiming your loyalty.

    I had a doctor earlier in the day tell me that the nasal flu swab was almost completely inaccurate,  then the head physician at the hospital say “it’s only wrong when its negative, then you just know it could be fifty fifty for the flu, if it’s positive it’s accurate”. In the face of this logical fallacy everyone just nodded and carried on.
    Why not doctor badges hospital wide for “preventing cardiovascular disease 2019”, when a doctor doesn’t eat a cheeseburger for a day?
    Why flu? Flu equals vaccine. Vaccine equals patients.

    I watched a doctor make a patient believe he had the flu when his test came back negative.
    Interesting to note that flu cases AND total flu deaths for a season are based on modeling NOT ACTUAL qualitative statistics. They claim 80,000 deaths a year. Thats just straight hot bullshit. If a million people die every decade from the flu, how come none of us know anyone that has ever died of the flu? Ive been alive for enough time for 2.5 to 3 million people were supposed to have died, I’ve never met anyone who lost someone to the flu in all my travels. Who does? There should be millions and millions of people by now, who have lost brothers, parents, loved ones, I’ve never met or known a single person. Why the girl scout badges? If hospital staff was able to pull back and see the big picture, you’d see that vaccines were the number one thing that caused the cacophony of aliments that kept customers coming through their doors today.

    Local news producer who now works at hospital said that she gets called from local news all of the time to keep the flu death headline constantly in the news. The doctor that she asked to do the on camera interview said, “it really wasn’t that bad of a flu season”, she said “thats fine, they just want to keep the headline going”. He did the interview.

  4. CA says:

    A women was sent to the ER because her primary care doctor thought she was acting mentally loopy and had flu like symptoms. In the ER the doctor examined her and asked, “when did you start feeling ill?” She said “Sunday”. The doctor followed up, “Did you get you the flu shot this year?” She says “yes”. “When did you get it?” Women replies… “Saturday”. This patient was a retired nurse herself. The doctor then said, “well its impossible to get the flu from the vaccine”. She of course already “knew this”. He then went on to try and discover the origin of her ailment, as if that information was of absolutely no relevance. He couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her.

    A 99 year old women was admitted to the hospital with problems breathing. The doctor was surprised by the fact that she developed asthma late in life. He then asked “did you get a flu shot this year?” The women replied “Oh no doctor, I got the flu shot 20 years ago and had a bad reaction, which is when my asthma started, so i never get them anymore”.

    I see a lot of denial of symptoms, such as “you don’t have those symptoms because the research says you couldn’t have those symptoms. The voiced concerns of the patient are listened too but immediately filed as contrary to the only obvious “facts.”

    4) General observation: A lot of doctors really hate the public and their patients. They treat and view them as cops view the public as “civilians”, people “other than”. They have the authority and knowledge that they enact on the public. Question them at your own risk. Doctors stay in a very safe space, standing on the pillars of their education until a patient asks something or presents a complicated symptomology that reminds the doctor of their inferior knowledge. They hate the patient for this. How dare they. “Everyone needs to stay in their lane”, the doctor repeatedly said today. People bring up of the flu shot and ask if its really safe etc, this is such an inane question for a doctor who’s has stopped questions vaccine safety 30 years ago when they were first taught and built their careers around that they were safe. According to the doctor the patient knows nothing. Often their symptoms cant even be their symptoms because they would go against the established science. They are simply ignored. I’ve seen this countless times.

    5) New procedure at the hospital to combat c.diff (antibiotic induced clostridium difficle)… is to have to stop testing for c.diff. (you read that right) The reasoning was if the test came back positive for c.diff the hospital protocol algorithm will trigger a recommendation to administer a further round of antibiotics. The doctor expelling this to me was all excited about a trial that a different local hospital did, where they gave every patient who got antibiotics yogurt and the rates of c.diff dropped 50%.
    I asked “I’m surprised that there isn’t a medical grade probiotic?” He said, “the problem is patient education” and then asked, “so if I told you to take a probiotic with your antibiotic when would you take it?” I said “at alternate times so that the good floral has time to replicate” He said, “well yes, actually”, but “most people would take them at the same time.” “So there is a lack of education”.
    So instead of simply telling them to take them at alternate times, they never tell their patients about probiotics. The doctor said that his approach of not testing for c.diff “saves the hospital money, whereas adding probiotics or yogurt with antibiotics would cost the hospital money.”

    During a meeting on the over use of antibiotics, an administrative doctor leans over in front of everyone and says to the group. “Just to be clear this reduction in antibiotic use doesn’t have anything to do with the public’s input, this is all based on science and data?” What was clear is that they were changing a policy that many in alternative medicine and (recent modern medicine), have been saying for a long time.. that we’re using way too many antibiotics. He had to announce his teams superiority over that knowledge and domain even while updating the policy to what other people have been doing for a long time.

    It clear that all of the tv ER dramas are about keeping up an imagine that a hospital would be a place where competent people looked after you. I have not observed that yet.

    These statistics always remind me of the Doctors strike in Israel in 1973 and a similar strike in LA in ’76 when the death rate dropped 35% and 18% respectively until the Doctors returned to work and the death rate ‘normalized’.

  8. Scott says:

    It took me several years to finally acknowledge the real reasons for my extended medical ordeal during the 2000s. Because of bad doctors, their bad advice, and really bad prescriptions drugs and their side effects. That was between 1999 and 2008, and I finally wrote about it earlier this year. https://libertyispeace.wordpress.com/2019/03/26/my-ordeal-with-doctors-bad-advice-and-bad-prescription-drugs/

  9. Laura says:

    From a CNBC article: “A recent Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000.” And I have to wonder if all the vaccine damages are included there, since they don’t publicly admit vaccines harm and kill. Even at the conservative estimate, say 345,000 “healthcare” caused deaths in a year, and using the probably trumped up figure of 40,000 shooting deaths per year (from 2017), it appears doctors and “healthcare” are far more dangerous than guns. Then there’s all the antibiotic abuse in animal farming, threatening us with super bugs that no antibiotic will be able to treat. Those same pharmaceutical companies supply those to the slaughter farms to the tune of million$ and million$. Where’s the media outrage? Oh, I forgot, they get billions of advertising dollars from the medical/pharmaceutical industry, but nothing from gun sales.

    Unfortunately critical thinking such as Jon’s is nearly extinct, at least here in America. I know you have heard these types of horror stories before but I have another one: My family member had antibiotic resistant E.Coli, was in Bellin in Green Bay and then transferred to Madison…the “best in the world”. Within hours of being there he was driven into a grand seizure by the technician, whom I had to resist the urge to strangle on the spot.

    After being given a seizure he was then put into a coma and the entire thing just went to hell. I could not believe that nobody else could see what was happening…their insistence on overcomplicating everything nearly cost my brother’s life.

    They were insane, but I felt like the insane person because I was the only one that could see what was happening.

    We need more writers of your caliber Jon, keep it up. Maybe someday we’ll be able to meet or talk. I am a huge fan, and am knee deep in the independent research as well.

    Western “medicine” is a steaming hot pile of absolute garbage. Doctors and Surgeons playing “God,” antibiotics that help to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria, vaccines that create the illusion of “herd immunity” etc.

    Quit participating in “Fast Food America” (which encompasses more than just food – mental health is important too), and focus on keeping yourself healthy (regular exercise, carefully sourced good food, etc.). Since I started doing this in 2003, I’ve had 2 colds, and nothing else.

  12. Roxy says:

    To add to the previous post regarding disdain towards patients; them, vs us: I recently pointed out to my doctor that pharmaceuticals are on the rise, close to beimg the #1 cause of death. She cited that this is due to the patients taking their meds improperly.
    I watched a video posted by a doctoer who said the drug insert pamphlets to the doctors (not for distribution to us outsiders) actually advise them to not explain things like side effects because it was far too complicated for us to understand. That doctor in the video had to leave the country in order to keep practicing. Apparently she wanted to be a real doctor and wouldn’t play by their rules.
    I’ve found it’s not just the doctors who blame the patient. It happens at the front desk, the billing dept., appointment scheduling, etc.
    A family member, an RN, who worked in the ER at a major metro county hospital had to keep an eye on many of the doctors to be sure they didn’t screw up on their rounds. She told of one especially egotistical doctor who they had to push to follow protocol. She finally had enough and he did it his way and his patient would have died had she not stepped in and taken over.
