“The House’s Jan. 6 committee has turned to a renowned former network news executive to hone a mountain of explosive material into a captivating multimedia presentation for a prime-time hearing Thursday,” Axios reports.
The hearing — the first of a series by the committee (most will be during daytime) — has the makings of a national event:
At least two of the broadcast networks will interrupt evening programming for live coverage anchored by ABC’s David Muir and CBS’ Norah O’Donnell. NBC will announce plans soon.
The other side: Republicans will argue that the 1/6 committee — which consists of seven Democrats plus Republicans Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois — is just out to get former President Trump.
While the first Jan. 6 hearing will be a prime-time spectacle at 8 p.m. on Thursday, the committee announced Monday that the second will be at 10 a.m. next Monday morning during normal committee hours. While the first hearing will be broadcast live by major television networks, it’s unlikely the second will get the same treatment.
Posted onAugust 14, 2021|Comments Off on OH, The Corruption of it all. And Greed.
I recently watched both series “DR. Death” and Dr. Death: The Undoctored Story on the PeacockNetwok, It was really good and I highly recommend you check it out. It made me angry as hell watching it, sad at first the amazed this could happen but mostly angry by the time I was done watching.
Just couldn’t get it out of my head. I do me best not to go to the doctor, hate going but my wife get’s on me about it so I end up going to appease her. I’ve’ been of the opinion for years it just a businesses. They never seam to cure anything, just treat the symptoms with medication’s.
With all the crap out there about covid, the vaccines, Dr. Fauci, the politic’s of it all. It really made me think about how corrupt the system is and it’s really all about the money, power, protecting each other and their reputations. They can honestly care less about the People.
A few day after that I came across the old series Whistleblower . First episode”Two dentists are alarmed by the unsafe and fraudulent practices that they say were standard at a pediatric dental chain that provides services in underserved communities. Fearing that it would lead to overtreatment,” check it. It’s good.
BTW, speaking about medication’s. The second part of the first episode of the Whistleblower is about big pharma and how they promote and sell their medication’s to doctor’s and get them to prescribe them to the population. Big business and corruption!
I hate dentist! I think their all crooks. I must naught of had good insurance because it always seamed to coast so much.
Now, without insurance good luck getting some work done if you’re on a small monthly pension and small amount of Social Security don’t have a lot of money stashed away for a rainy day. I remember had a bad toothache, went to a dentist they told me it was a sinus infection and gave me Antibiotics for it and it made it better for awhile. It came back and I went to the doctor this time and told them what the dentist said so they gave me more Antibiotics. Same think happened, when it came back it got worse each time. Finally, went back to the dentist and they discover I actually did have a bad tooth. By this time though when they pulled it, it was so infected part us my sinus cavity came out with it. You should have seen them scramble. They repaired it with mesh and told me I was lucky they where able to repair it otherwise it would have been an expensive operation. Ha, I thought you’r lucky cause I would have sued the crap out of you if I had to get a operation because of you’r negligence.
My last experience with a dentist was a nightmare! I couldn’t find a dentist that would touch me unless I had cash or credit to pay for it. I finally found one that had a payment plan. They did the work on a root canal and put a cap on it and a year later the cap first got a hole in it and finally fell out. I called them and they said it was only guaranteed for a year. So now I have a dead tooth without a cap, it doesn’t hurt though most of the time.
“What could be worse than being diagnosed and treated for cancer? Later finding out that your doctor lied and you never had it to begin with. An office manager at a cancer center blows the whistle on the oncologist running the practice when he discovers the doctor giving chemotherapy to more than 500 patients who do not need it. The scope of what the whistleblower discovered was staggering.” Air Date: Jul 20, 2018″

Bear with me just a bit more. I started working on this post last night after posting a couple on my website News and Headlines (which BTW has seen a major drop in traffic since Google started throttling back search results on it last year. But it’s OK I still get traffic from other search engines and am able to get info out there.) Figured I’d finish up this morning.
I mentioned earlier in this post, “With all the crap out there about covid, the vaccines, Dr. Fauci, the politic’s of it all. It really made me think about how corrupt the system is and it’s really all about the money, power, protecting each other and their reputations. They can honestly care less about the People.”
I’m a Army vet served 76-79, love my country. That will never change. But with all the revaluations in the last say three, four years with the FBI, CIA, the whole intelligence agency and the Government in general, the politicians in both party’s. It’s really sad frustrating and really just pisses me off.
Check out these two video’s I watched last night and tell me you’r not pissed too.
Pedro Gonzalez joins ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to weigh in on the Democrats’ response to the demographics changing in the United States.
I guess all we can really do is just slowly but surely vote all these career politicians out and get people in there that will go after this crap with a vengeance. I’m mean short of a good old fashion 1776 movement.
We have to Speak out, don’t fear the “Woke Mob” there’s more of us then there is of them. It just seem’s that way because their so loud. We have to get louder! You know America isn’t racist and who the real racist are.
This is one doctor visit you would be best advised to skip, or else it could be your last! Meet the modern day Dr. Death, whose patients almost never survived an operation with him! How many surgeries did he botch? Find out right now!
Over the course of just two years, Christopher Duntsch a.k.a. Dr. Death operated on 38 patients in the Dallas area, leaving 31 paralyzed or seriously injured and two of them dead.From 2011 to 2013, dozens of patients in the Dallas area woke up after their surgeries with horrible pain, numbness and, paralysis. Even worse, some of the patients never got the chance to wake up. And it’s all because of one surgeon named Christopher Duntsch — a.k.a. “Dr. Death.”
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — The U.S. Justice Department has joined a series of whistleblower lawsuits alleging that Kaiser Permanente engaged in a years-long scheme to defraud the federal government out of Medicare payments.
The suits allege that since 2009 the company systematically pressured doctors to amend medical records by adding “diagnoses that patients did not actually have” in order to receive higher Medicare reimbursements, according to federal prosecutors.
According to Steve Hilton“it’s time for a revolution, to take on the corruption in the healthcare industry” and I agree.
Take the time to watch these three videos on the corruption in the healthcare industry, pharmaceutical and hospitals and how politics, politicians and government have an effect on it. It’ll make your stomach turn.
It’s time to get the lobbyists politicians and campaign contributions out of the healthcare industry and let the free market truly work.
Following the videos are sum stats and good articles.
“World Health Organization Assesses the World’s Health Systems
The World Health Organization has carried out the first ever analysis of the world’s health systems. Using five performance indicators to measure health systems in 191 member states, it finds that France provides the best overall health care followed among major countries by Italy, Spain, Oman, Austria and Japan.
The findings are published today, 21 June, in The World Health Report 2000 – Health systems: Improving performance*.
*Copies of the Report can be ordered from firstname.lastname@example.org.
The U.S. health system spends a higher portion of its gross domestic product than any other country but ranks 37 out of 191 countries according to its performance, the report finds. The United Kingdom, which spends just six percent of GDP on health services, ranks 18 th . Several small countries – San Marino, Andorra, Malta and Singapore are rated close behind second- placed Italy.” More here.> World Health Organization Assesses the World’s Health Systems
“Neither Canada nor Japan cracked the top 10, and the United States finished a dismal 35th, according to a much anticipated ranking of healthcare quality in 195 countries, released Friday.
Among nations with more than a million souls, top honours for 2015 went to Switzerland, followed by Sweden and Norway, though the healthcare gold standard remains tiny Andorra, a postage stamp of a country nestled between Spain (No. 8) and France (No. 15).
Iceland (No. 2), Australia (No. 6), Finland (No. 7), the Netherlands (No. 9) and financial and banking centre Luxembourg rounded out the first 10 finishers, according to a comprehensive study published in the medical journal The Lancet.
Of the 20 countries heading up the list, all but Australia and Japan (No. 11) are in western Europe, where virtually every nation boasts some form of universal health coverage.
The United States—where a Republican Congress wants to peel back reforms that gave millions of people access to health insurance for the first time—ranked below Britain, which placed 30th.” More here.> Which countries have the best healthcare?
“A comparison of health systems in 11 wealthy nations has found the US falling short by multiple measures, while the UK’s National Health Service leads in several categories.
“We measured performance quality across five domains, and the USA fell short in all five,” says Eric Schneider of the Commonwealth Fund think tank in Washington DC. The domains were ease of access to healthcare, how equal access is to people of different incomes, administrative efficiency, how well the care process works for people who use it, and how good the health outcomes are.” More here.> US ranked worst healthcare system, while the NHS is the best
Excerpts from a excellent article, link to full article follows. An Interview With Medical Historian James Mohr
Q. Is government involvement in health care un-American?
“A. There is a long American tradition of public responsibility for health. In the 19th century, for instance, states devoted as much as 30 percent of their budgets to public mental health care. And when it became clear that vaccination actually worked against smallpox, state after state created labs to provide vaccines free of charge to citizens. So to say it’s un-American is profoundly wrongheaded.
Is the current system broken?
It can’t be sustained as it is right now if we care about the public’s overall health. We can’t afford it. The World Health Organization ranks the U.S. 38th in health-care quality, below Dominica and Costa Rica and above Slovenia and Cuba. Meanwhile, per capita we’re spending half again as much as our nearest competitor.
What’s the key problem?
Nowhere else are doctors paid the way they are here, or allowed to have such absolute autonomy. Decisions made in the 19th century created an occupation that almost guarantees a handsome income and high status, but offered few incentives to be rigorous about internal discipline: It’s still almost impossible to lose a medical license. As a result, medical mistake rates are stupefying: Hundreds of thousands of Americans die annually from medical errors.”
How do we fix it?
“Doctors have a vested interest in you getting sick. They are paid to get you better—and generally the more that costs the more they make. We need to change that incentive. If doctors were salaried—and we can afford handsome salaries—to maintain people’s health in the most effective, not most expensive, manner, we would have a far better structure. Around the country there are plenty of small practices and some big ones that do that and work very well indeed.
What’s the biggest worry?
No change. Making no progress. We won’t revolutionize the system overnight. Change will be incremental on myriad fronts. But we have to be world leaders instead of lagging. We have to find ways to combine what is positive and unique about our system while eliminating the historical anomalies that make it unsustainable.” More here.> What’s Wrong With American Healthcare?
