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.

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.



CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
