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

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.

New physicians’ alliance: Hospitals are killing people, doctors are being ‘hamstrung’ by regulators, leading to ‘hundreds of thousands of excess unnecessary deaths’

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.

Pfizer’s Scott Gottlieb predicts businesses will ‘fall in line’ and mandate the jab in wake of FDA approval

America took a giant step Monday toward extinguishing what’s left of freedom and setting up a bifurcated society in which at least a third of its population gets treated as second-class citizens unfit for employment, buying or selling.

Trump the populist is losing his base over this one issue that increasingly defines the times

Former president gets booed at one of his own rallies

For millions of Americans the definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ is about to change, casting them back into the outer edges of society with the ‘unclean’ and the untouchables

Americans are growing restless over where the Covid narrative is heading, and there seems to be a growing disconnect between “we the people” and those who seek to represent us in government.

Even Donald Trump, ever the populist, now seems hopelessly out of touch. It’s like the grassroots movement of deplorables he helped energize has now passed him by and are waiting for him to catch up.

But will he catch up, or lag farther and farther behind?

Will America go full Nazi? Next line to be crossed will be to deny medical treatment to the unvaxxed

‘This is an unprecedented horror show’

As the clock struck midnight on Jan. 1, I recall people posting comments on social media along the lines of … “Good riddance to 2020! No matter what happens in 2021 it could not be worse than 2020!”

At the time, I remember thinking: Hmm… What if 2020 was just a taste of what’s to come in 2021?

Did Biden’s DOJ just green-light employer-forced vaccine mandates?

The corporate media is making much ado about the U.S. Department of Justice issuing a legal opinion that employer mandates of the Covid shots are “legal.”

Are they hoping their readers and viewers are unable to tell the difference between a DOJ “opinion” and a Supreme Court opinion? It certainly looks that way.

Who’s calling the shots? Push is on to mask up and shoot up the school children: What parents need to know

Parents of school-age children are about to encounter the most bizarre school year ever.

When it comes to the safety of the Covid shots, most elected leaders, from Joe Biden all the way down to the governors, mayors and school boards, have shirked their responsibility and handed over full control of their offices to unelected bureaucrats and shills for Big Pharma.

Behind the Vaccine Veil: Doctor cites ‘whistleblowers’ inside CDC who claim injections have already killed 50,000 Americans

‘Good doctors are doing unthinkable things’ …They ‘appear to be under a spell’

The most highly cited physician on the early treatment of COVID-19 has come out with an explosive new video that blows the lid off the medical establishment’s complicity in the unnecessary deaths of tens of thousands of Americans.

Dr. Peter McCullough said these deaths have been facilitated by a false narrative bent on pushing an all-new, unproven vaccine for a disease that was highly treatable.

He said COVID was a bioweapon and the vaccines represent “phase two” of that bioweapon.
