Georgia hospital weaponizes Biden’s vax mandate, holds couple against their will for days

by Leo Hohmann


A petition drive may have helped save the lives of two Georgia residents who were trapped in a hospital that refused to respect their daughter’s power of attorney and release them to another medical facility that would administer critical life-saving treatments.

Joseph and Beverly Rickels were both admitted to Piedmont Hospital in Cartersville, Georgia, on Sunday, Sept. 12, diagnosed with Covid-related pneumonia. The condition of both husband and wife has now deteriorated to the point where both are receiving oxygen. Joseph is in critical condition.

LifeSite News, a conservative media organization, asked people Thursday to sign a petition requesting the governor to step in and allow the daughter to get her parents out of Piedmont Hospital and into another facility that will give the treatments they need.

Shockingly, the attending physician said that she would not release the patients to their daughter’s care unless she (the daughter) proves she is vaccinated.

See our previous article explaining how hospitals nationwide are complying with top-down CDC guidelines focused on a vaccine-exclusive approach that is actually killing people.

Word came late Friday afternoon, Sept. 17, that the petition campaign was yielding results. Officials at Piedmont Hospital had finally conceded to let the couple see any doctor of their choice who could come to the hospital and give them the treatment they requested, but that decision came days late and only after extensive public pressure had been applied on the hospital, Steve Jalsevec, president and co-founder of LifeSite News, told LeoHohmann.com.

“Crucial time was lost in dealing with their obstinance and denying the use of critical medications that are known to work all around the world, and then they wouldn’t release the patients to their daughter who had power of attorney, simply because she was unvaccinated,” Jalsevec said.

The LifeSite email alert sent out Thursday asked readers to “urgently CONTACT Governor Brian Kemp to intervene in this case and demand that Piedmont Hospital respect the power of attorney of their daughter, and the desire of Joseph and Beverly Rickels to be moved to another location to receive the care of their choice.”

The couple’s daughter, Courtney Rimmer, has power of attorney, which should, by law, allow her to make decisions for her parents, both of whom indicated they agree to the move.

You can still call or email the Governor’s Office to let him know your displeasure on how this hospital is failing its patients. The number is (404) 656-1776.

The Rickels have the right to receive fully-approved, known safe alternative treatments such as Ivermectin, and this hospital did not respect their duly-appointed power of attorney, as well as medical privacy, until it was possibly too late.

If Piedmont is denying critical treatment to the Rickels, they are likely doing the same to other Covid patients. This must stop.

It might also be a good idea to contact Georgia State Attorney General Chris Carr to ask that his office investigate the medical tyranny that is overtaking Georgia’s hospitals. The Attorney General’s number is: (404) 458-3600.

If this can happen to the Rickels, it can happen to anyone.

Piedmont Healthcare is a private nonprofit operating 16 hospitals and hundreds of clinics throughout Georgia.

The hospital chain claims on its website factsheet to “provide safe, compassionate, convenient, and high-quality care across 16 hospitals, 50 Piedmont Urgent Care centers, 25 QuickCare locations, 610 Piedmont Clinic physician practice locations and more than 2,770 Piedmont Clinic members.”

If Piedmont is truly interested in “high-quality, compassionate care,” it would not have delayed the administering of critical treatments to the Rickels. It would not need to receive dozens of calls and/or emails to remind them how to make such basic good-faith decisions. And it certainly would not be asking for the vaccine status of a worried daughter before honoring her wishes as power of attorney for her parents.

Guillain Barre warning added to Johnson & Johnson Covid19 vaccine by FDA, getting it 3 to 5 times higher after vaccination

by Citizen Wells


Guillain Barre Syndrome GBS warning added to Johnson & Johnson Covid19 vaccine by FDA, Chances of getting 3 to 5 times higher after vaccination

“two papers published May 19 in the journal of Hospital Pediatrics found pediatric hospitalizations for COVID were over counted by at least 40%, carrying potential implications for nationwide figures used to justify vaccinating children.”...The Defender

“it is universally known that children virtually never die from COVID-19 and given that children have a very strong immune system, they are more likely than adults to have an over-reaction to the shot.”…Dr. Steven Roth

“There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.”…WHO

“FDA to Add Warning to J&J Vaccine of ‘Serious But Rare’ Autoimmune Disorder

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will announce a new warning on Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccine saying the shot is linked to Guillain–Barré syndrome. In April, the agency added a warning about blood clotting disorders to the J&J shot.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is will announce a new warning on Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J)
COVID vaccine saying the shot has been linked to Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), a “serious but rare” autoimmune disorder. The Washington Post attributed the news to “four individuals familiar with the situation.”

According to The New York Times, the chances of developing GBS after receiving the J&J shot is three to five times higher than would be expected in the general population in the U.S.

About 100 preliminary reports in the U.S. of GBS have been detected after receiving J&J’s vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a statement to CNN today. Most cases were reported about two weeks after vaccination, mostly in men 50 and older.


COVID-19: The Coverup, The Cure, and Key Evidence



The coverup of an early cure for COVID-19 didn’t begin with the viral videos of America’s Frontline Doctors, but they sure did bring the message home, and exposed one of the most orchestrated and targeted attacks on subverting life-saving drugs, while everyone watched this cyclone in real time. Within 24-hours all major social media platforms, mainstream news, Bill Gates, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and politicians tried to kill the message, but not before it had already reached over 17 million people. America’s Frontline Doctors’ website was even removed in its entirety by Squarespace, and they had to quickly rebuild it on another host site. This was not just an attack on the doctors, this was an attack on the American people to subvert critical information on hydroxychloroquine that has proven to treat COVID-19 in the early stages. Why would they want to do this? Why would they want to hide a cure from the American people?

Wrap your head around this 24-takedown of a drug that’s been around for over 65 years with little to no side effects, only 20 deaths worldwide, and proven to work on COVID-19 patients. Tylenol results in 500 deaths annually in the U.S. alone, and it’s sold over the counter. Does this equate? Next, review the evidence they claim doesn’t exist, and why Remdesivir is the drug of choice, along with the push for a vaccine.

The fear is worse than the virus, and the damage it is doing has far surpassed COVID-related deaths. CDC Director Robert Redfield recently statedWe’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID.” Sadly, teenagers are among the highest.

America’s Frontline Doctors are a group of doctors who have been working on the front lines treating COVID-19 patients with great success. It was founded by Dr. Simone Gold who has worked as an emergency room physician for 20 years and is also an attorney. They called for a press conference and a 2-day summit to bring the truth to the forefront and teach Americans about the disinformation campaign, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), masks, fear, impacts on children, and other key aspects.
