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).
Sounds just like Hitler’s boys.
Just remember that in a post-crisis time that the survivors of that crisis are much more cunning and dangerous per capita than the population group that they were a part of pre-crisis.
Also those who have nothing left to lose are also the most dangerous to those who they perceive took away all of their, assets and choices.
Take it however you want to. I have my own idea what will happen in the long run to these people who are causing and banking on crises to further their political goals.
Notice how they never have to answer to specific questions or statements. They duck and run and here is a classic example. Where is Ezekial going? What a utterly convenient moment for him to up and run!
Notice how Rahm (the shadow) is very rarely speaking in public or even seen much in public? Evil always lurks in the shadows. It is where he lives.
And when Oboy the Kenyan Wonder gets confronted he always starts his misleading comebacks with “Look...” - as if to say, ‘anything you or anyone else has said on the subject is now irrelevent, because now I’m speaking...’.
The US public who are for this socialized “Obacare” health care annhilation - only prove their ignorance. I suppose we could all write books on the degree of this ignorance right here.
If you want to pray - pray that this “Obacare” demise does not pass - and that these power ball players from he!! will be reduced to nothing as more intelligent Christian based conservatives replace them in office soon.
‘The major civil unrest will come in the form of 2 or 3 million enraged taxpayers descending on DC.’
Major civil unrest just might occur when several states say bye-bye to federal mandates and assert their rights as states according to the US Constitution.
This is a civil war that may have already begun. Hopefully it can be fought without bullets. Probably the only federal agencies large enough to physically force states back into the system would be the military. They would likely balk at making war on their fellow citizens.
I’ve heard of this, and while posting on another thread I came to the conclusion that this free healthcare including abortion, for the poor, is nothing more than offering those who were marched into Auschwitz a shower. Genocide plain and simple. God have mercy.
“THE MAN SHOULD BE IMPEACHED NOW!”
when and if these things come to fruition, Impeachment will not be an option. I dare to say that removal by election may not be possible either. I believe the fix is in, the coup has already happened and the only way to retreive the republic will then be revolution.
You may be right - but we are not there yet.
“You may be right - but we are not there yet.”
True but things are developing at a furious pace. I would prefer that it all could remain lawful and orderly and elections in 2010 and 12 will take care of buisness but I am fearful that the end of our free system of government has already been compromised and the “powers that be” are not going to go quietly
No they aren’t going to go quietly. Acorn fraudsters are now fully funded thanks to the “stimulus” bill - over $2 Billion in taxpayer money to this illegal criminal organization!
I believe THAT is Zero’s trump card and why he is telling Pelosi to tell her Demwits in Congress not to worry - Acorn will keep them in office in 2010.
We are going to be ripe for revolution if 2010 does not produce an overturning in the House - and it will be harder in the Senate.
I did not think in my lifetime I would live to see what we are seeing today in terms of Totalitarianism forced upon usby Marxists in power.
Saw the trends....just didn’t think it would “hit” during my lifetime.
