Don’t Give Up On Life

     Pascal just forwarded this:

     A father took a gun into hospital to stop doctors taking his son off life support – and during the three-hour stand-off the young man squeezed his hand.
     The sign that he wasn’t brain dead meant he was kept alive – and he is now recovering and doing well.
     His father, 59-year-old George Pickering II, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after marching into Tomball Regional Medical Center in Texas with a gun.
     His 27-year-old son, George III, had been declared brain dead after suffering a massive stroke in January.
     After doctors declared there was no more hope for him, they ordered a ‘terminal wean’ – whereby life support is slowly withdrawn to end a life….
     During the three-hour standoff, Pickering threatened hospital staff. His other son was eventually able to get the gun from him.
     Pickering admitted to being drunk and aggressive but said it was only because he knew his son wasn’t ready to die.
     During the standoff, Pickering’s faith that his son had been misdiagnosed never wavered and after he finally got the response he wanted from his boy, he surrendered peacefully to authorities.
     ‘During that three hours, George squeezed my hand three or four times on command,’ he said.
     His son later came out of his coma and is now fully recovered.

     This brought tears to my eyes. That a father should defend the life of his helpless child – with armed force – is so rare today that I can’t remember when I last saw a report of it. Consider also that the boy’s mother and brother were willing to see the hospital kill George III. Why? Unknown. But it was his father’s courage and stalwart defense of his son that tipped the scales.

     The “authorities” will undoubtedly try to crucify the elder George Pickering for resisting him. They want their power over life and death to go unchallenged, as is the way with totalitarians and megalomaniacs. I wish him the best in his defense against the myrmidons of the “law.” He saved his son’s life, and for any good man, that is worth any price.

     May God bless and preserve you, George Pickering II – and may your ex-wife and other son reflect upon the horror of what they were willing to allow, and why.

    Very moving story, but I must sidetrack a bit.   The whole notion of “settled science”, especially concerning medicine and especially since Covid has been a serious danger to our population.  true science is never settled, and scientists have shown this over the centuries.  What I am referring to are the protocols and medical procedures that are frozen and dissenting or contrary information is censored, those proposing it are ostracized and we, the patients suffer for it.

    We have seen it occur during the government lockdowns and mandates to get the vaccine.  Anything that threatens big pharma’s bottom line is demonized.  Foolish explanations that could be identified as bogus could be exposed quicker than a snake oil salesman operating out of a wagon.  Instead, medical journals, alphabet agencies and programmed M.D.’s afraid to lose their licenses promoted the falsehoods and stopped dissent with an iron fist.

    Just because Covid has eased doesn’t mean the false narrative has let up.  Vaccine injuries and deaths have been surreptitiously statistically deleted or explained away  to take attention off of the facts.  When confronted with actuarial numbers that are 4 times the  historic high in certain age brackets, never seen before, medical experts sidestep the fact and move on to keep defending the “safe and effective” kill shot.

    1. Even though your comment is not germane to the post, its importance is such that I had to approve it…but don’t let it become a habit! 😉

    That’s a story from 2015.   I found an update where George II was released from jail after George III made a “miraculous” recovery.

    The hospital staff probably wanted the kid gone so they could profit from his organs. Would it surprise anyone at this point?

    1. It wouldn’t surprise me. They’d profit twice: once from his hospital stay; once from the sale of his organs.

    George Pickering II, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon

    And when will we see the hospital staff, as well as the mother and brother, charged with attempted murder?
