Pandemic response plan: let the elderly, the sick, and the poor die

The Bush-Cheney administration�s Department of Homeland Security, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have collectively set guidelines that recommend in the event of a "pandemic" or mass crisis that the elderly, the sick, the severely injured, and the poor will be denied life-saving medical treatment.

Details are discussed in this Associated Press report: Who should MDs let die in a pandemic? Report offers answers

The proposed guidelines, meant to serve as a blueprint to be followed by hospitals across the country, specifically recommends that the those deemed at "higher risk of death" with a "slimmer chance of survival" will be denied services and �scarce resources," as dictated by designated officials.

Specifically, those who will be denied help include people who are:

  • Older than 85

  • Suffering from severe trauma, which include injuries from automotive crashes and shootings

  • Severely burned

  • Suffering from mental impairment (Alzheimer's disease)

  • Suffering from chronic diseases, including lung, heart, and diabetes

In other words, the most disadvantaged will be left to die.

For years now, we have witnessed the gutting and militarization of the US, and the systematic march towards total population control: the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the destruction of law and civil liberties, manufactured elections, domestic spying, and the increasingly aggressive reduction and rationing of social and health care services.

With the world plunging deeper into crisis (manufactured as well as natural) -- endless world war, economic upheaval, energy and food shortages -- this bone-chilling new plan is further evidence that the powers that be are preparing (and/or planning for) a die-off.

This is nothing short of eugenics -- the �cleansing of the unfit� that Hitler and his like only dreamed of -- delivered through Bush-Cheney, obediently carried out by legions of surrogates, and opposed by few.
