Canadian Politician Proposes Seizing Private Hospitals to Fight COVID-19

*EDITOR’S NOTE: The seizure of and the banning of ownership of private property is one of the tenants of the Great Reset. “You will own nothing and you will be happy.” This is just the beginning. The ruling class will own everything, including you.

In the Canadian province of Quebec, no party sitting in the provincial parliament dares to question the mammoth size of government. But strangely enough, only one party openly embraces socialism: Québec solidaire (QS). Their motto could be boiled down to “There is no salvation without the State.”

This conclusion is quite obvious when reading a recent Facebook post written by a leader of the left-wing party.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, a co-spokesman for the party who was elected to the provincial legislative assembly in 2017, expressed outrage that it was possible to get an appointment for a “Brazilian butt lift within a few days” while “intensive care units are overwhelmed” because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nadeau-Dubois’ team called a few private clinics, and they told him that “there’s no reason to cancel or delay surgeries unless the government tells us otherwise.”

Perhaps inspired by that last point, he proposed seizing private ORs because “an exceptional situation requires exceptional measures… Lives are on the line.”

For a moment, let’s forget the fact that “nothing is more permanent than a temporary government measure,” and that QS is only dreaming about having an all-mighty public sector in nearly every aspect of everyone’s lives.

One has to wonder whether Nadeau has even skimmed through Quebec’s administration of the healthcare system since it was nationalized some 50 years ago. Since the deep cuts of the mid-1990s under Lucien Bouchard, the nominal budget for healthcare has multiplied by a factor of 3.7, increasing five percent per year.

And yet, waiting lists hardly budge.

As of July 2018, the waiting time to see a family doctor was 371 days. These specialists are so overwhelmed that they have already denied service to 75,000 people and counting. As for elective surgeries, over 100,000 people have been on a waiting list for more than six months. Many more patients will have to wait too since “non-urgent” procedures have been delayed because of the pandemic.

What’s more, the province-wide ER occupancy rate is currently 95 percent of available gurneys, with some being well overcapacity. So nothing much has changed over four years ago.

Seizing private ORs, or even taxing corporations that “profited from” the pandemic, is very unlikely to shorten waiting lines, however.

As Montreal’s Economic Institute reminds us, Medicare-for-all (Canada has its own version of Medicare) sees people as spending, and therefore they need to be rationed in order not to go over budget.

But in a private hospital, patients are seen as a source of revenue; there is, therefore, an incentive to give great care so that, for future needs, the patient will come back.

And when there is waiting time in private hospitals, it’s rather short compared to their public peers. So much so that public organizations like CSST (Quebec’s OSHA) send workplace injuries to private establishments in order to save time. Indeed, a shorter waiting time means quicker rehab, less spending on worker compensation, etc.

So as long as the government funds and administers healthcare, refunding patients using private hospitals could mean saving on precious public funds.

It’s already happening for certain long-term care facilities (CHSLD) that receive public funding but are privately administered. In other words, they work like charter schools, and just like them, they have a sword of Damocles hanging over their heads.

In short: They need to work exceptionally well in order to remain open. Otherwise, the state can easily revoke its license. It’s a strong motivator—especially since public establishments hardly, if at all, suffer the same fate—but it pushes charter school administrators like Alex Quigley in North Carolina to find ways to improve their performance. Through trials and tribulations, Quigley was able to improve his school’s grade from F to D; and he hopes to make it to a C soon.

“Charter” CHSLDs operate in a similar fashion. Since they are publicly financed, they can’t charge users more than the fixed price, which was around $2,000 for a room with one bed in 2020. They even pay income and sales taxes, unlike their 100 percent public counterparts.

And yet, their quality is much better: None of them were evaluated as offering a “preoccupied” level of service compared to 12 percent of their wholly public peers. As for a “very satisfying” level of service, it was respectively 64 percent compared to 18 percent, according to a survey of users.

The improved level of care also probably explains why the only CHSLDs that weren’t contaminated by COVID when it started last year were either charter or entirely private. One head administrator, Marie-Hélène Girard, even went to buy PPE in mid-March 2020 on her own initiative despite severe shortages.

“It wasn’t recommended, but we did it anyway. Better to have those handy than nothing at all,” she said in an interview.

Girard was able to act promptly thanks to a lighter administrative burden. According to economist Pierre Fortin, administrative cost for “charter” CHSLD is 26 percent lower than their 100 percent public counterparts. The overall cost is about 12 percent lower.

So rather than envying the private sector’s efficiency, QS should look at it and take notes. While having no direct out-of-pocket spending can be nice, a median waiting time of 16.3 weeks for medically necessary procedures can lead to a heavy human toll.

Rationing is the result of regulating supply and ignoring prices, profits, and good incentives. “Non-essential” procedures like Lasik or butt lifts either saw price decreases or much slower price increases than regular medical because practitioners saw an opportunity for profit.  This drew more providers into the marketplace, which increased supply, driving prices down.

Canadian lawmakers would be wise to emulate the private sector, not co-opt it. By utilizing markets, the private sector has shown it can lower both wait times and costs—something Canada’s “Medicare-for-all” system has failed to deliver.

      The Blind Faith Mythology of Covid by the Pseudo-Intellectuals and Atheists in the Age of Evil

      Silicon Valley atheists have faith that God does not exist and have faith that covid exists, even though nobody has proven to the pseudo-intellectuals and atheists that God does not exist, and nobody has ever proven to the pseudo-intellectuals and atheists that covid exists, but it has been proven that covid does not exist when 1,500 covid samples were examined by seven different universities using electron microscope examination which revealed that all of the samples were infulenza A or influenza B. Dr. Derek Knauss also called the CDC and asked for the covid virus genome sequence, which the CDC said that they do not have.

      “Joseph Goebbels, in full Paul Joseph Goebbels, (born October 29, 1897, Rheydt, Germany—died May 1, 1945, Berlin), minister of propaganda for the German Third Reich under Adolf Hitler. A master orator and propagandist, he is generally accounted responsible for presenting a favourable image of the Nazi regime to the German people. Following Hitler’s suicide, Goebbels served as chancellor of Germany for a single day before he and his wife, Magda Goebbels, had their six children poisoned and then took their own lives.” – Britannica.com

      Nuremburg Trials Britannica.com

      “Nürnberg trials, Nürnberg also spelled Nuremberg, series of trials held in Nürnberg, Germany, in 1945–46, in which former Nazi leaders were indicted and tried as war criminals by the International Military Tribunal. The indictment lodged against them contained four counts: (1) crimes against peace (i.e., the planning, initiating, and waging of wars of aggression in violation of international treaties and agreements), (2) crimes against humanity (i.e., exterminations, deportations, and genocide), (3) war crimes (i.e., violations of the laws of war), and (4) “a common plan or conspiracy to commit” the criminal acts listed in the first three counts.”

      “In rendering these decisions, the tribunal rejected the major defenses offered by the defendants. First, it rejected the contention that only a state, and not individuals, could be found guilty of war crimes; the tribunal held that crimes of international law are committed by men and that only by punishing individuals who commit such crimes can the provisions of international law be enforced. Second, it rejected the argument that the trial and adjudication were ex post facto. The tribunal responded that such acts had been regarded as criminal prior to World War II.”- Britannica.com

      We do not need to keep the stock market levitating. It is a national security threat, and so is the surveillance state. Those are the biggest national security threats that America has ever had. Wall Street and the surveillance state have had a history of perpetrating  terrorism. With Wall Street, it was and is for stock price manipulation, with the surveillance state, it was and is for superman complex create a crisis, where they create a crisis, and use the mafia extortion racket technique of protection money. Usually, the two corrupt industries are working in concert.

      After the surveillance state’s illusions of legitimacy and respectability of been totally shattered, on display for the world to see, as well as the entire government’s for their enabling the two corrupt institutions, and pretending that 9/11 was not controlled demolition that everyone in at least the first tower did not collude in, since hardly anyone from that building died except for Solomon Brothers, who, I guess just decided that they would rather die than lie, or everyone else hated them and didn’t tell them, the seven false flag wars that followed, the destruction of US Liberty based on blatant lies, with the creation of a giant evil nanny state that is really the big bad wolf that does not do a single thing that is legal, the groping TSA, the Department of Homeland Security, and also the covid scamdemic and assassination through vaccination, BLM, Antifa, 1/6 capitol 
      raid and shooting, Dark Winter, police pedophile websites, Epstein and Maxwell, the illusion of legitamacy is totally gone! 

      What would posess someone to currently join the surveillance state, or recently? Would they think, I know! I will join the surveillance state, spy on the bad guys, and bust them! And then they tried and were told, well, you can’t do that because of the constitution. And they said, constitution?! What the fuck is the constitution?! That is my guess. Of course the fact that jerks in the media like John Whitehead make it sound like what they are doing is legal sure is not going to save any lives! Because you would think that as gigantic as the surveillance state now is, that all of those people that entered it, could not be totally evil. They may be by the time that they retire though! The surveillance state and Wall Street are involved in fraud, theft,  drug trafficking, arms trafficking, human trafficking, child trafficking, organ trafficking, terrorism, vandalism, arson, murder,war,and probably other evil things that I know nothing about. I would strongly advise everyone to stay away from both Wall Street and the surveillance state. 

      They can go to hell and be with like minded people. They have destroyed the country and the world.

      Oh, forgot to mention the propaganda that attempts to pretend that they are legitimate. 

      The surveillance state is bad company that just refuses to leave, and not to mention that they were never invited in the first place and illegally broke into my life and totally destroyed it and have been torturing and terrorizing me for most of my life, but it became extreme in 2014,when they did unconsented uninformed brain surgery through my nose and ears while unconscious, in Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee owned by Ascension Healthcare, which resulted in loud sleep depriving tinnitus, an inability to cry, and an immediate and sudden need for glasses, and illegal unconsented ovum theft that  resulted in immediate and abrupt menopause, and then it became insanely extreme in 2017 when they started using vault7 technology and MEDUSA mob excess deterent using silent audio developed by Waveband corporation techlogy on me, right after they hacked my phone, and they did this when I was mourning the 2015 loss of my mother, the 2020 loss of my brother, and the 2018 loss of my dog. In addition to the fact that they revived me from a clinical state of death, just to torture me and prevent me from living my life, because every time that I leave my house, even to do yard work, it is broken into, vandalized, things stolen, moved around, by neighbors that have stolen things from my home and placed in their windows and used in their yard in front of me, and neighbors stalk me, gas light me, let me know that they are spying on me by repeating things done or said in a normal tone of voice in my home with shades down and windows closed. They are trying to cheat their way through life, and have decided to be fully committed to being illegal, evil, sadistic, insane, idiotic, liars, deniers, stubborn, and wrong, and have convinced themselves that it is a winning strategy, but today might be my lucky day, when they are arrested, prosecuted, sweeping up the whole InfraTard MICIMATT crime ring in one giant web, and thrown in prison for scores of class one felony counts that they have been commiting non stop in a serial crime spree on me, my life, my family, and my property. Stranger things have happened! Like everything that they have done to me and my family! They are totally evil monsters! Many of them are atheists or they believe in determinism. Faith destroys the power of the terrorists. It is the biggest threat to their existences. I know that for a fact. They want people to be in a state of desperation, learned helplessness, and shear panic, so that everyone will feel that they have no choice but to accept what they are doing, I refuse to accept what they are doing, whether they like it or not. I know the law, and I know my rights, and my rights and their limits are defined clearly in the constituion. They want people to believe that victims are responsible for the behavior of the terrorists. That is not true. They are responsible for their own actions. If they have a scorched earth policy, and I refuse to accept all of the things that I have mentioned, or refuse to stop talking about it, that will be on their heads, and the blood will be on their hands, not mine! They want everyone to feel like, oh, don’t say anything, you will upset the evil terrorists. Well, if you just let them get away with what they are doing and refuse to acknowledge it, that is enabling them to continue terrorizing, so if you are going to lose either way, take them down with you! We don’t want them to be the last ones standing! I am mad as hell at the evil terrorists! Pacifying them is not and never will be on my agenda! Some of these evil terrorists are in their eighties, and have spent their entire adult lives in the emotional state of a two year old! Well, most two year olds learn that no means no. If their mothers were retarded sluts, and they inherited retarded slut genes, that is not my problem. Because they obviously had horiible parents! They behave like spoiled brats. They are obnoxious as hell.

      a brief overview in communist takeover of privately owned vital services.
      especially, important for those needing critical wound care during the Great Reset.

      Pol Pot

      The Cambodian genocide (Khmer: ហាយនភាពខ្មែរ or ការប្រល័យពូជសាសន៍ខ្មែរ) was the systematic persecution and killing of Cambodians by the Khmer Rouge under the leadership of Communist Party general secretary Pol Pot, who radically pushed Cambodia towards communism. It resulted in the deaths of 1.5 to 2 million people from 1975 to 1979, nearly a quarter of Cambodia’s 1975 population (c. 7.8 million).[1][2][3]

      Joseph Stalin

      Stalin instituted the Great Purge, (Reset)
      in which over a million were imprisoned and at least 700,000 executed between 1934 and 1939. By 1937, he had complete personal control over the party and state.
      Stalin’s government promoted Marxism–Leninism abroad through the Communist International and supported European anti-fascist movements during the 1930s,

      Chairman Mao

      His policies resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people in China during his 27-year reign, more than any other 20th-century leader; estimates of the number of people who died under his regime range from 40 million to as many as 80 million,[262][263] done through starvation, persecution, prison labour and mass executions.[188][

    8. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Individuals in the surveillance state/police state have the mind set of a rapist, and have found a way to commit non-stop total life rape, but conceal their identity, so that their victims do not know who their perpetrators are. This leads to the victim mistrusting everyone, since anyone that they encounter, may be their perptrator, and I say this from personal experience from being terrorized and tortured by the megalomaniacal, narcisstic, psychopthic, predatory monsters in the surveillance state that have the most outrageous and alarming sense of entitlement that the world has ever known, without absolutely any legal, moral, or intellectual justification for their barbaric crimes against humanity. I know who some of them happen to be. It is a really gigantic cult though.

      My advice to any victim of abuse by the surveillance state would be not to move. You will probably end up in the same circustances within a very short time frame based on reports that I have read from targeted individuals, in addition to the fact that you just let you known perpetrators off the hook free and clear for their crime spree on your life. As the saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. If you mose you will be off kilter. Moving is extremely stressful. Moving during international unprecedented corruption of the scamdemic, and during surveillance abuse, makes adaptation to a new environment all the more challenging than it would typically be for someone moving under normal circumstances, or moving to something, and not trying to move from something, and the surveillance state is everywhere. Political parties, federal agencies, police unions, national and international corporations makes moving a fool’s errand if it is for the purpose of trying to move from the surveillance state.
