Skip to comments.Obama's Depopulation Policy Exposed (Video confrontation of Rahm Emanuel's brother)
Posted on 07/27/2009 12:33:43 AM PDT by Mount Athos
Dr. Ezkiel Emanuel (brother of White House chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel) is the Chair of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health.
It is likely that he would be on any governmental panel that decides what medical procedures are allowed on whom.
He has written at length that the elderly should get less care, that Americans are too enamored with high-tech care, and that people who have incurable illnesses (such as dementia) should not be guaranteed health care because they no longer contribute to society. Watch him being confronted here in this video.
Dr. Emanuel's reaction to the statements made is interesting.
Do a search for Ezekiel on this document for more background info: http://sbk.online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203609204574312451234786752.html
Like you were saying, ping.
I guess Emanuel forgot about the lessons of Exodus:
“Honor thy father and thy mother as the LORD has commanded thee, that thine own days be long” (no matter how old they get),
“Thou shalt not murder” (by withholding medical care)
and “Thou shalt not covet” (old people’s wealth or property)
Sorta cuts short the amount of time the elderly have to divest themselves of assets to avoid estate taxes as well.
Oh yeah additional reading if you are interested...

My God, this is insane...
I found the Oct 12th comment referenced in the video...
The world economy is teetering With trillions of dollars evaporating in this crisis, millions of middle-class Americans face the prospect of losing their homes and jobs, and witnessing a dramatic contraction of their retirement savings. In response, the public will desperately want financial security . [B]ailing out bankers and other gamblers [and the] huge increase in the federal debt that these bailouts will entail intensifies the pressure to rein in health-care costs .The dean of health-care economists, Victor Fuchs of Stanford, has long maintained that we will get health-care reform only when there is a war, a depression or some other major civil unrest. Its beginning to look like we might just have all three .
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, The Financial Crisis and Health Care, the Chicago Tribune, Oct. 12, 2008
I agree that this is horrible. But fair warning, the questioner from the audience is a Lyndon LaRouche guy. I first saw this video a few weeks ago and I googled him to find out more, and that’s what I learned.
Doesn’t mean these plans aren’t factual, btw.
Yeah, just means we have to independently verify the facts he cited.
I found info on this panel with list of members here
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today announced the members of the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research. Authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the new council will help coordinate research and guide investments in comparative effectiveness research funded by the Recovery Act.
Comparative effectiveness research provides information on the relative strengths and weakness of various medical interventions. Such research will give clinicians and patients valid information to make decisions that will improve the performance of the U.S. health care system.
The 15 member council, named today in accordance with a Congressionally-mandated timeline, will assist the agencies of the federal government, including HHS and the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, as well as others, to coordinate comparative effectiveness and related health services research. The Recovery Act authorized $300 million for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, $400 million for the National Institutes of Health, and $400 million for the Secretary of Health and Human Services to support comparative effectiveness research.
To ensure that all voices are heard, the council will hold a public listening session on April 14, 2009.
Oh look at another article he wrote.
“What Are the Potential Cost Savings from Legalizing Physician-Assisted Suicide?”
Ezekiel J. Emanuel, M.D., Ph.D., and Margaret P. Battin, Ph.D.
ping in case you think this is good for the health care list.
What's good about it?
Which is why I continue to say Obama WANTS no recovery, NO jobs, NO HOPE.
He wants misery and financial destruction of the middle class of Americans and he is well on his way to achieving that goal.
This Holdren Nazi and the Emmanuel Nazi are just more proof that Obama INTENDS on inflicting as much damage and destruction on Americans as he possibly can.
THE MAN SHOULD BE IMPEACHED NOW!
Emanuel: “. . . Victor Fuchs of Stanford, has long maintained that we will get health-care reform only when there is a war, a depression or some other major civil unrest. Its beginning to look like we might just have all three. . .”
The “major civil unrest” will come in the form of 2 or 3 million enraged taxpayers descending on DC with torches and pitchforks to remove a regime the employs freaks like Zeke Emanuel.
guess not lol :)
For those who know what Ramparts is...perhaps the most telling sentence in the article.
A Socialist, communist, radical to the core. Just like Obama.
Here’s some relevant comments from Obama.
“The bill I sign will also include my commitment and the commitment of Congress to slow the growth of health-care costs over the long run.
“This is a separate issue. And I just want to be clear. There’s an issue of how do we pay for health-care reform immediately, in a way that’s deficit neutral, but how do we also bend the cost curve so that we’re not seeing huge health-care [cost] inflation over the long-term that would not only make any health-care reform package more expensive, 15, 20 years out, but would also make sure that people who have nothing to do with the government programs like Medicare and Medicaidhow do we make sure that their costs are under control as well?
“I realize there’s going to be a lot of debate and disagreement on how best to achieve these long-term savings. Our proposal would change incentives so that providers will give patients the best care, not just the most expensive care, which will mean big savings over time.
“This is what we mean when we say that we need delivery system reform. I’ve proposed to Congress, and I am actually confident that they may adopt these proposals, that independentan independent group of doctors and medical experts will oversee long-term cost-savings measures.
“Every year, there’s a new report that details how much waste and inefficiency there is in Medicare, how best practices are not always used, and how many billions of dollars could be saved.
“Unfortunately, this report ends up sitting on a shelf. And what we want to do is force the Congress to make sure that they are acting on these recommendations to bend the cost curve each and every year, so that we’re constantly adjusting and making changes that will reduce costs for families and for taxpayers. We need an independent group that is empowered to make these changes, and that’s something that we’ve proposed.
“I’m confident that if we work with the foremost experts in the field, we can find a way to eliminate waste, slow the growth of health-care costs, and provide families more security in the long term” (emphases added).
