According to the protocol of the Clinton White House a meeting that took place on Nov. 12, 1993,”…The President…”
meeting with senior aide Gene Sperling and two other Clinton aides identified in the protocol only as as JFS and DG “…gives an overview of the AIDS situation and its relationship to the Health Security Act. Based on position papers submitted to the President from various organizations [that] include the WHO and the CDC, it is evident that AIDS is an epidemic in the United States. Juggling figures to show [only those with active AIDS] has kept the figures artificially low…The President now believes that it would be impossible to include any…AIDS patients with those citizens to be covered by the Health Security Act.
” Clinton was so concerned about AIDS that on Nov. 12, 1993 as the Health Security Act was in its death throes, he suggested that a provision be added to the bill mandating a one-time screening for AIDS be done on all US citizens. Clinton also proposed having the CDC require every citizen with full-blown AIDS to be confined to AIDS sanatoriums until they were no longer contagious, or until they died. The sanatoriums were to be situated in sparsely-populated areas of the country.
Upon admission, patients would be required to sign living wills with euthanasia previsions that could be triggered by proxy when their healthcare providers deemed them to be “terminal.” The AIDS provision Clinton wanted to add to Hillarycare does not appear to be in Obamacare. However, the same federal Health Board that will be charged with the responsibility of doing the cost analysis on the merits of keeping the elderly alive versus denying them lifesaving procedures will also be responsible for preparing a cost analysis on the value of keeping terminally-ill AIDS victims alive on the public dime.
It’s interesting to note that the gay and lesbian population actively campaigned for Clinton in 1992 and 1996 just as the elderly—the primary target of the Obamacare Health Board actively campaigned, and voted, for Barack Obama in 2008. Yet, try to convince the gay and lesbian community that, if Hillarycare hadn’t failed, most of them would be spending their final days in an isolated AIDS sanatorium somewhere in the Badlands. And the blue-haired seniors in Florida and Arizona may find that their next flare-up of irritable bowel syndrome, or their next broken hip, might land them in a terminal care unit of their local hospital where those who linger while dying go to die, instead of sitting around bragging about their latest hospital adventure at the assisted living center.
Make no mistake about it. The Obama Health Board, or as it is legislatively known, the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, headed by death merchants the likes of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel based on the vision of Dr. Robert Pearlman, the Chief of Ethics Evaluation for the Veteran’s Administration National Center for Ethics in Health Care, who was the visionary behind the notion that disabled veterans who do not want to be a burden to their families or to society, have the right to death with dignity through assisted suicide.
Pearlman authored his death protocol in 1997. For the remaining three years of the Clinton Administration, Pearlman’s 52-page end-of-life planning document, “Your Life, Your Choices,” not only became the basis for the living wills used by disabled military people but, it also became the framework for the federal regulation that now requires hospitals and other medical care facilities to pressure patients—particularly elderly patients—to sign Living Wills (i.e., euthanasia provisions). Today, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath, doctors regularly euthannize patients deemed to be terminally-ill.
Among the list of terminal illnesses that can trigger the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.!!!
No right-minded person should ever sign a living will unless they have a penchant to prematurely expedite their exodus from this world. When you sign a living will, you are actually signing your own death warrant—and you are giving someone you don’t know the right to end your life when they see fit to do so. The argument of the pro-euthanasia crowd
(whose primary goal is population reduction at both ends of the age corridor) is that people have a right to death with dignity.
There is no such thing. There is no dignity in death. Even in a roomful of people, death is a journey we travel alone. God, not a bureaucrat, appointed when that journey will begin for each of us.
Agendized bureaucrats and their minions in the medical community do not possess an inherent right to hasten that journey because they view us as a drain on the financial coffers of the State, or because stupid men believe the populations of the nations are responsible for cyclic weather change and floods and droughts. And, by reducing the population of the United States we will somehow make the world a better place.
The sole purpose for euthanizing the elderly is to reduce the drain on a bankrupt Social Security and Medicare system. The government of the United States not only stole the Social Security Trust Fund.Now they want to kill the elderly when they come to collect the money due them in their old age.
Here’s just one of a thousand examples of “death with dignity.” On February 20, 1998 when Mary Helmueller, a RN from Minneapolis, was visiting friends in Mexico City, her grandmother fractured her left knee and was admitted to a local hospital. When Helmueller returned, she learned that her grandmother had died. According to the hospital records concerning her grandmother’s demise which Helmueller personally examined, her grandmother was alert and oriented upon admission but, within 48 hours, she went into a coma.
The “coma” was in fact, unconsciousness induced by morphine. According to nurses at the local hospital who attended her, she would awaken between pain medications saying: “I don’t want to die. I want to live to see Johnny ordained. I want to see Greta walk.” (Johnny was her grandson who was studying for the priesthood in Rome. Greta was her new great-granddaughter.) She was transferred to a hospice where she died a day or so later. Her medical charts said she had a stroke and was in renal failure.
Helmueller insisted that her grandmother had no terminal illnesses. But, based on federal guidelines, she did. She was old. Old age is construed to be a terminal illness since you can’t recover from it. Also, according to Helmueller, to the best of her knowledge, her grandmother never signed a living will. It was not until hospice officials called family members and told them that death was imminent and there was no chance the elderly woman would recover, that they tacitly gave the hospital permission to execute her. Keep in mind, all that was wrong with her when she was transferred to the hospice was a fractured knee and overmedication—by the medical staff.
Carefully tracing the events that led up to her grandmother’s “coma,” Helmueller discovered that her grandmother became increasingly unresponsive after each morphine treatment. It appeared to Helmueller that her grandmother’s coma was caused by a morphine overdose. However, the admitting records at the hospice affirm the statements of two hospice doctors who swore, by their signatures, that she was terminally ill. However, the first doctor, the director of the hospice, never examined or evaluated her—nor did he so much as review her chart which, by the way, listed her as a “No Code” patient. The second doctor was on vacation when Helmueller’s grandmother arrived via ambulance from the hospital. He returned from vacation three days after her death. Yet, in the expert medical opinions of both doctors—neither of whom ever saw her while she was living—she was terminal when she was admitted.
The medical-legal community now defines terminal illness as any incurable or irreversible illness or chronic medical problem that will, or could, result in death in six months without medication or medical intervention. What that means is, if you suffer from heart disease that is under control with medication, but you are nearing retirement age, under Obamacare, you could be construed to be terminally-ill by the federal guidelnes mandated by the Death Squad.
Therefore, if youy’ve signed a living will, and you have a chronic illnesses or catastropic disability, you can be denied medical treatment or suddenly find yourself in a morphine-induced “coma,”—and euthanized.
Pinellas County, Florida Circuit Court Judge George S. Geer ordered Terri Schiavo to be denied liquid nourishment and life-sustaining water—sentencing an innocent woman to be executed in an extremely painful manner. No judge in the United States of America has a constitutional right to sentence an unconvicted, innocent person to death. No judge in the United States could pronounce a death sentence on even the most notorious mass murderer that entailed starving them to death to the extent of even denying them water and have it stand up under judicial scrutiny. Yet, that’s what Geer did to Schiavo. No court overruled him, and no governor “pardoned her.” The death sentence stood, and Terri Schiavo was executed by the State of Florida..
The 15-member Obama Health Board was created under HR 1, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The board will gain its authority from HR 3200, The America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. The board, which the legislation purports to be an advisory panel created to perform cost analysis of all phases of the stimulus plan is, in reality, a panel of physicians and healthcare providers whose role it will be to determine at what point it is no longer cost productive to sanction the use of taxpayer dollars to save the life of a patient who requires a surgical procedure, medical procedure or lifesaving medications to correct a medical malady that threatens the life of an elderly patient or someone with a catastrophic illness.
The specific language that deals with the rationing of healthcare to the elderly found in The America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (which was drafted in part by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel), an advocate of assisted suicide, with considerable input from Dr. Pearlman, the author of Your Life, Your Choices” the head of ethics evaluation for the Center for Ethics in Health Care in the VA.
On Sun., Aug. 23, Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday questioned Tammy Duckworth, an Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs about the “death book” that suggests to all disable veterans that their lives aren’t worth living and that they should consider “end-of-life” options. Duckworth, herself a paraplegic who lost both legs as a helicopter pilot in Iraq, told Wallace that the Obama Administration was not using Pearlman’s death book. She then noted that it was used during the Bush Administration. Wallace corrected her by reading a July 9, 2009 VA memo which clearly indicates an Obama mandate that Your Life, Your Choices, be supplied to every veteran—not just those who are traumatically disabled.
Duckworth told Wallace that, as the copilot of a Blackhawk helicopter, when she was shot down over Iraq, she had both a living will and a power of attorney that allowed her husband to execute her wishes. Duckworth was wounded on Bush’s watch, not Obama’s. Had Duckworth been wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq on Obama’s watch, in a post-passage Obamacare world, under Obama’s federal Health Board guidelines that weighs not only the monetary cost to save and rehabilitate the wounded warrior, but also the post-medical care cost in terms of the disability income, the government would be obligated to pay to that wounded warrior for the rest of his or her life.
When President George W. Bush learned that the Veteran’s Administration was using Pearlman’s death book in 2007, he asked that a copy of the booklet be sent to the White House. After reading the worksheet on page 21 that poised various negative life scenarios and then asks the reader to decide whether or not his or her own life is actually worth living. One of the most tasteless scenarios is this one: “Have you ever heard anyone say, ‘if I’m a vegetable, pull the plug.’?”
Bush ordered the VA to discontinue its use. Why would the Veterans’ Administration, or any agency of the United States government, pose questions specifically to make members of the armed services question their own worthiness as humans, and make them feel guilty for surviving the wounds that disabled them? Your Life, Your Choice was actually designed to cause disabled servicemen (and women) to ponder just how much of a burden they were on their families, and whether they should do the merciful thing and end their own lives? In point of fact, the Veteran’s Administration wasn’t raising the specter because they believe disabled veterans are a financial burden on their families but, rather, because they are a financial drain on the resources of the State.
At the start of his second term, in 2005, Bush-43 began frantically waving a large warning flags that Social Security was very literally—not theoretically—bankrupt. Bush warned that if something was not done very quickly, within 10 years, the system would collapse and the federal government would no longer be able to meet its financial obligations under Social Security. In order to devise a system that would prevent the bureaucracy from putting Social Security receipts into the general treasury and spending it instead of placing it in a trust fund as required by law, Bush proposed privatizing Social Security. Under Bush‘s idea, the money would go into investment accounts that Congress could not touch. The bureaucracy didn’t like that idea. As Bush-43 scurried around looking for
45 million brand new US taxpayers earning middle class incomes to replace the Baby Boomers who began to retire in 2005 through an amnesty plan the make citizens out of approximately 25 million illegal aliens, the left accused him of fearmongering while they assured America’s retirement age seniors and the soon-to-be retirement age seniors that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the Social Security system. Adding their voice to calm America was the AARP, the advocacy group of the elderly—which receives millions of dollars in federal grants each year to advocate to seniors on the behalf of the federal government.
The bureaucracy knew there was a major problem—too many old people and not even retirement revenue. The problem existed for over a decade before George W. Bush stumbled across it in 2005. Twenty years of unrestricted abortion in the United States between Jan. 22, 1973 and Jan. 20, 1993 (when the Clintons came to the White House) eliminated approximately 32 million future taxpayers. Adding the children these aborted babies did not grow up to have, we actually lost 49.6 million future taxpayers and consumers between 1973 and 1993. Today, after a quarter century of killing the unborn in the United States, that number has reach just a hair under 70 million. From 1973 to 2009, the age demographics of the nation radically shifted as the population of the United States began to age.
The problem wasn’t that there were too many elderly people. The problem was that there weren’t enough young people paying into the Social Security system. The far left changed the Trust Fund law and stole the Social Security Trust receipts. They replaced the money with worthless IOUs. Today, there is no trust fund. Tax receipts earn 1% interest, but the money is virtually spent as soon as it’s received, so it doesn’t matter. The money deducted from your paycheck this month covers someone else’s Social Security check next month. Social Security has become a pyramid scheme. Violating the Ponzi law is what Bernie Madoff went to prison for. Like every pyramid scheme, ultimately there will be more recipients demanding benefits than there will be workers to fund those payments. When that happens, Uncle Sam’s Ponzi scheme will collapse.
Before that happens, government has to find a way to restore the age balance in the taxpayer pool needed to keep the fund solvent. Sadly, Hillary Clinton’s failed Health Security Act of 1993 offered a bureaucratic solution: rationed healthcare.
If Obamacare, which will supersede all current health options (including those offered by private carriers) is enacted into law, your signing a living will that requires all extraneous means be used to prolong your life will not save, or prolong, your life for one minute if the Health Board rules that you have exhausted your “healthcare options.” The Health Board will hold the power of life and death over healthcare recipients who are construed to have either terminal or catastrophic illnesses, or, if they are victims of expensive chronic illnesses that historically drain financial resources without healing the patient, the Board will have the right to deny procedures or surgery even though they may enhance the quality of life of the patient.
Obama’s 15-member Health Board, officially branded as the Federal Coordinating Council for
, is authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Its mandate is to “…assist the agencies of the federal government, including HHS and the Department of Veterans Affairs…to coordinate comparative effectiveness and related health service research…The Council will consider the needs of the population served by federal programs
The verbiage in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
makes it appear that the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research was legislated as an advisory panel to do cost analysis on all facets of the stimulus package as though to suggest their job is to make sure stimulus money is properly disbursed and that council—funded with $1.1 billion annually—will address the impact of the stimulus bill on subpopulations in the United States. Its deliberations, according to the legislation, will be public and transparent based, the government’s memo said, on the [Resident's] commitment to open government.
The Council will be headed by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel,(Dr Death) brother of Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. From the HHS are Anne C. Haddox, Chief Policy Officer; Dr. Thomas B. Valuck, MD, Senior Advisor in the Center of Medicare Management; Peter Delaney, Director of the Office of Applied Studies; Dr. Carolyn Clancy, MD; Deborah Hopson, Ph.D, RN, Associate Administrator, HIV/AIDS Bureau; Dr. David Hunt, MD; James Scanlon, Acting Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation; Dr. Elizabeth Nabel, MD, National Institute of Health; Dr. Garth Graham, MD, Office of Minority Health; Dr. Jesse Goodman, MD, Acting Chief Medical Officer for the FDA; Dr. Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, MD, Acting Deputy for Office on Disability, HHS; Neera Tanden, attorney for Health Reform at HHS; Dr. Joel Kupersmith, MD, Veteran’s Administration; and Dr. Michael Kilpatrick, MD, Department of Defense.
