Shocker: Media Lies About Rand Paul’s Canadian Hernia Surgery



The fake news media is up to its normal tricks, this time lying about Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s upcoming hernia surgery, which he will receive at a privately-owned hospital in Canada.

“Rand Paul Heading To Canada, Land Of Universal Health Care, For Surgery,” said a Monday HuffPost headline.

“Free Market Boner Rand Paul Is Getting Hernia Surgery in Canada,” said Splinter.

“Rand Paul, Who Calls Universal Healthcare ‘Slavery,’ Will Have Surgery in Canada But Insists Hospital is Private,” said a Newsweek headline.

You get the point. Canada has universal healthcare. Paul rails against universal healthcare regularly. Thus, the leftist press is stretching Paul’s Canadian surgery into some sort of hypocritical endorsement of socialized medicine.

But the facts remain. Paul will receive surgery at the Shouldice Hernia Hospital in Ontario, which is described as a “world renowned” hospital for such care. It is also one of the only privately owned hospitals in Canada

“Founded in 1945 by Dr. Earl Shouldice, the private, for-profit hospital has been offering the finest in hernia care to not only Ontarians but also to patients from all over the globe,” said a London, Ontario newspaper in 2012.

According to the Canadian Women’s Health Network,  95 percent of Canadian hospitals are run by the Canadian government.

Shouldice is not run by the Canadian government, which is perhaps why the services there are “world renowned.” There aren’t many Americans fleeing to Canada for quality healthcare. In fact, it is often the opposite. There is a trend in the Canadian healthcare system of patients suing the government to receive treatments that are not covered by their “universal healthcare” system, but are covered under standard insurance plans in the United States’ mixed publicly/privately run healthcare system.

A Canadian doctor and senior fellow at both the Manhattan Institute and the Montreal Economic Institute discusses the horrific details of Canada’s socialized medicine here. Dr. David Gratzer wrote:

My health-care prejudices crumbled not in the classroom but on the way to one. On a subzero Winnipeg morning in 1997, I cut across the hospital emergency room to shave a few minutes off my frigid commute. Swinging open the door, I stepped into a nightmare: the ER overflowed with elderly people on stretchers, waiting for admission. Some, it turned out, had waited five days. The air stank with sweat and urine. Right then, I began to reconsider everything that I thought I knew about Canadian health care. I soon discovered that the problems went well beyond overcrowded ERs. Patients had to wait for practically any diagnostic test or procedure, such as the man with persistent pain from a hernia operation whom we referred to a pain clinic—with a three-year wait list; or the woman needing a sleep study to diagnose what seemed like sleep apnea, who faced a two-year delay; or the woman with breast cancer who needed to wait four months for radiation therapy, when the standard of care was four weeks.

Gratzer also wrote a book on the subject, which the fake news media has apparently not read.

So, according to Gatzner, Paul’s hernia surgery under universal healthcare in Canada at a public hospital would put him on a three-year waitlist. At privately owned Shouldice, he will receive the surgery on Jan. 21. Paul will pay $8,000 out of pocket, in cash.

“This is more fake news on a story that has been terribly reported from day one,” Paul spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper reportedly told the media. “This is a private, world renowned hospital separate from any system, and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services.”

Predictably, the press downplayed the cause of Paul’s injury in the first place – his crazed leftist neighbor brutally attacking him out of nowhere. The media described the motive for the attack as a “lawn care dispute.” Boucher did 30 days in jail for the attack.

In the optics department, Paul gets an F for his choice in healthcare provider. He had to see these headlines coming. But that is no excuse for the lying fake news media to, well, lie.

SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror

Et tu, Fox News?



A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.

Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.

“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.

“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.

“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”

“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.

Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:

A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.

The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.

“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”

Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.

“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.

Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.

President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
