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 ourprevious articleexplaining 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.
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.

Fifteen top-level frontline doctors met in Puerto Rico last week to form a strategy to counteract the unbridled corruption they say is destroying the American medical profession and leading to thousands of unnecessary deaths.
The group, called the Pandemic Health Alliance, drafted a “Physicians Declaration” and released it Sept. 12 at a global Covid summit in Rome, Italy.
These doctors are not happy with how Covid patients in U.S. hospitals are being treated, or more precisely, not being treated.
Every place we go in life, we encounter people carrying myriad viruses and germs. This has always been the case, since the dawn of mankind. It’s a fact of life.
They carry tuberculosis, AIDS, influenza, measles, chickenpox, meningitis, mumps, rubella and all manner of contagions that can be transmitted in all manner of ways.
Yet, we don’t see any calls for digital health passports, no apps on your phone, no social-distancing marks on the floors, no calls to show your papers or a recent negative test for any of these illnesses. Only one. Covid.
And never have we seen a president go on national television like Joe Biden did last week and order everyone to get an injection claiming to prevent any of these diseases under penalty of losing your job and livelihood.
“We are losing patience,” he sneered into the camera with the sinister look of a man possessed.
The power of propaganda: Or is it something more?
Propaganda has always been present in the big government-big media narrative but what we’ve seen recently crosses the line into something more serious.
This bears the hallmarks of a cleverly managed psy op. Mind control.
The goal of the mind-controllers is to create a mob mentality. They whip up mass hysteria, using the fear generated in this case by an invisible virus to manipulate and divide the public into two camps: The obedient and the disobedient. Then they incite the obedient to hate the disobedient.
That was the real purpose of Biden’s speech, to fuel hatred and violence against unvaxxed Americans.
People have been conditioned to believe there is only one disease they must fear to the point of getting up into everyone else’s personal medical business. One disease we must be tested for constantly and even inject ourselves and our children with an unproven, unknown mystery serum. We’re told repeatedly across all media platforms that it’s some kind of magic potion, that it’s the only thing capable of saving us and returning us to that elusive “normal.”
Even when the potion turns out to be a fraud, causing more people to get sick, the obedient ones await their next command from the same set of hypnotists: “Just take one more shot and it will offer the protection you are looking for. ‘Normal’ is just around the bend. Trust us. Trust the science.”
But normal never appears. Just more commands, more “requirements,” more mandates, more shots.
Forget that we already conned you into taking two shots that didn’t work. Don’t ask questions. Just shut up and take another dose of the magic potion, then another, and another, and…
The obedient ones remain locked in a vicious cycle of Stockholm Syndrome, displaying a love-hate relationship with their tormenters, ever ready to switch gears and salute on command to the next big lie. But I sense some may be growing weary of “trusting the science.” Their religious fervor for the needle is waning as fast as the fake protection it delivers.
It’s simply not normal for the establishment to be this determined, to the point of being obsessed, with a single medical treatment, especially one that has failed so abysmally in its stated purpose.
For more insights, please watch the panel discussion below that I was honored to participate in with renown scientist Dr. Judy Mikovits, former Pfizer employee Karen Kingston, attorney Thomas Renz and fellow journalist J.D. Rucker.
The question that should haunt every patriot, every God-fearing Christian in every country, is this: What if we never agreed to take part in this abnormal “new normal”?
I didn’t. My family didn’t. Many of my friends didn’t. We went right on living, normal as normal could be.
We refused their masks, their social distancing, their needles. Instead, we took responsibility for our own health, getting rest, eating right, taking supplements that boost the immune system.
If more people would resolve to return to their old normal and take responsibility for their own health, the real-life normal might come back into focus. The fictitious, virtual normal promoted by Bill Gates and his buddies at the satanic World Economic Forum would be extinguished.
There are indications that this “pandemic” is not as scary as we are told. Yes, it can kill, but the vast majority of deaths could have been prevented if not for negligent hospital care. [The video above explains how hospitals are killing people].
By the way, has anyone heard of a single billionaire that has died of Covid? One professional athlete still in the prime of life? One famous movie star under the age of 80? Hmm, how odd. Neither have I.
If this virus was as deadly as we’re told, wouldn’t it make sense that it would be killing people across all walks of life?
But the media-driven panic must continue on so that more people will roll up their sleeves for the magic potion. It’s safe and effective, safe and effective, safe and effective…
Don’t look at those VAERS reports of blood clots, strokes, heart inflammation, Bell’s Palsy, neurological disorders, skin conditions, blood disorders, miscarriages and the list goes on. It’s so safe and effective that it requires a lifetime of booster shots to keep you “protected.”
The FDA pulled an experimental swine flue vaccine in 1976 after 53 deaths. These Covid shots have been blamed for 14,000-plus reported deaths.
Why are they so desperate to get this mystery serum — the full contents of which has still not been disclosed — into the arms of every person on earth?
Why are hospitals treating Covid patients with Remdesivir, known to cause kidney failure, while refusing to provide known safe treatments that actually heal?
When that question finally gets answered, and it will, the truth has a way of running roughshod over roadblocks to justice. Every doctor, every nurse and every pharmacist who injected this substance into people without asking what was in it, without demanding to see data on the adverse reactions, they will all be seen as complicit in the horrific crimes against nature now playing out. They all violated the international Nuremburg Code requiring informed consent.
Slave or free: The choice is yours
By definition, a slave is someone who is the property of another and must obey every command given by their owner. Last I checked, we were not the property of Joe Biden or his regime, not the CDC, not the WHO, nor any corporation.
There is nothing this satanically inspired regime would love more than to provoke some patriot or group of patriots to violence.
Violence is not the way to break a demonic stronghold. Has an exorcist ever succeeded in expelling a demon by challenging it to a fist fight?
The way to break this enemy is to refuse to obey him. Give them no power over your body or your life and they will have none.
More than anything, this enemy covets your submission. Why? Because they know once you submit to that mask, to that first shot, they have you marked in their system and it will not be an easy trick to find your way out.
An enemy like this cannot be ceded any territory, not one inch. If you give them one thing, they will quickly see you as weak and demand another.
They want chaos, disorder and volatility. They want us to start shooting, they want a civil war, so they can call in their comrades from China to help mop up the patriots. Don’t give in to their provocations. We are up against demonic forces seething with hate and foaming at the mouth in anticipation of an opportunity to justify using military force against we the people. You can see the hatred in Biden’s eyes.
Don’t let them have their wish for a blood bath. We can deny them that satisfaction. And we can win this battle, simply by saying “no, we refuse your serum, we refuse your masks, and we refuse to go to work or fulfil any contract with any person or corporation who doesn’t respect our bodily integrity.”
The left loves to make enemy lists.
It’s time we start making some lists of our own.
Truckers and nurses and doctors and plumbers and trash collectors unite! We are strong together. We have the power to shut their system down.
We need to compile lists of wicked people and corporations that none of us will spend our money with, or punch a clock for, or deliver products or services to.
In short, you don’t own us Mr. Biden. You are not our master. Not you or any of your corporate buddies. And we will defy you to the bitter end.

Joe Biden just declared war on 100 million Americans, threatening to cut them off from their livelihoods and starve out their families if they don’t submit to a medical treatment they believe is bad for them.
In one of the most shocking speeches ever delivered by an American president, Joe Biden threatened 100 million Americans if they don’t take a vaccine that has proven that it does not stop people from getting or spreading its targeted virus.
Without fanfare and with hardly a peep from the corporate-owned establishment media, the United Nations World Health Organization, also known as the WHO, issued a document last week that should set off alarm bells for lovers of freedom and liberty everywhere.
The document provides “guidance” for every nation in the world on how to go about implementing digital health passports, which is something Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and other power elites have said since last year would be absolutely essential to conquering the Covid pandemic.
The Biden administration is trying to redefine the meaning of the word “immunity” in its attempt to force the Covid injection on 220,000 U.S. military service members who have already contracted and survived the SARS COV-2 virus that originated in Wuhan, China.
This has opened the door for a federal lawsuit filed August 30 by two active-duty service members against Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Homeland Security Director Xavier Bacerra and U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Janet Woodcock.
The Navy this week gave its sailors 90 days to get the shot and the Army and Air Force were poised Thursday to enforce their own timetables, reported Military.com.
The CDC makes the ludicrous claim that only three of the approximately 13,000 deaths reported through its vaccine adverse-event reporting system were legitimately caused by the Covid shots. Yet, the CDC refuses to release any data that would prove the deaths have actually been investigated in any serious way.
And if the VAERS reports are that wildly off base, why has the CDC continued to operate such a bogus vaccine-safety database for 30 years? In fact, it’s done quite the opposite. In April of this year, the CDC put out an article bragging that its VAERS reporting system is a great success story.
Sorry, CDC, but you don’t get to have it both ways. That’s called propaganda, not science. See Chris Wright’s brilliant takedown of this crooked bureaucratic agency below.
The abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan foreshadows the abandonment of freedom-loving patriots in the American homeland
America has been playing with fire for years, disrespecting its Constitution and allowing, even encouraging politicians to pander to the fears of an ever-present boogieman over the higher values of individual freedom and responsibility.
Boogiemen are very effective tools in the arsenal of those waging psychological warfare against a nation. They are effective because a good boogieman usually brings legitimate scary qualities to the table.
Islamic terrorists are legitimately scary.
Invisible viruses that spread throughout the population are legitimately scary.
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Aug. 23 it had granted full approval to the first Covid “vaccine” under the brand name Comirnaty, the mainstream media immediately ran with the narrative.
Joe Biden jumped in front of a microphone and told businesses they needed to “step up” the mandating of vaccines for their employees.
Dr. Anthony Fauci told national media outlets he expected a whole host of new “mandates” to be fueled by the “approval” of the Pfizer jab.
There’s only one problem. The “approval” given by the FDA was not for the Pfizer jab currently available in the U.S. market.
The devil is always in the details. Some of us weren’t fooled.
But because we and a few others looked beneath the facade and checked the facts of what the FDA actually did and not what the media and Joe Biden’s administration said it did, we took some heat. Even some of our own subscribers questioned whether maybe we got it wrong.
No, it was the corporate media who got the story wrong. And as a result, thousands of Americans no doubt capitulated and went ahead and rolled up theirs sleeves, thinking they had no other choice legally than to succumb to their employers’ mandates.
Today, on Aug. 27, the Orlando, Florida-based Liberty Counsel, perhaps the most respected Christian legal firm in the nation, issued a press release that confirms our story.
