According to reports Prime Minister Fico is alive and in a helicopter on his way to a hospital in Bratislava.

There is video of Robert Fico being dragged to this car after he was shot.

The Gateway Pundit heard from our close friend in Europe who is a friend of Fico who tells us Fico is wounded but expected to live. He is in the hospital.

Media reports say Slovakia’s populist Prime Minister Robert Fico was injured in a shooting and taken to hospital.

The incident took place in the town of Handlova, some 150 kilometers northeast of the capital, according to the news television station TA3.

A suspect has been detained, it said.

Deputy speaker of parliament Lubos Blaha confirmed the incident during a session of Parliament and adjourned it until further notice, the Slovak TASR news agency said.

The incident took place in front of the local House of Culture, where Fico came to meet with supporters. Police sealed off the scene.

Everywhere she looked on telly, she said, in drama, sport or reality shows, disabled people were depicted either as 'charity cases' or 'inspiration porn — superhuman narratives like the Paralympics, or where you're in terrible pain and now you want to kill yourself'.

If you tuned in any time in the hour, Liz was making similar points. She met people with opposing views but, because her opinions were immutable, there was little tension in the encounters — even when she flew to Canada to interview a doctor who routinely performs euthanasia.

The doc was an oddball, trying to convince us that assisted dying was marvelous, by twinkling and laughing as she talked about terminal illnesses. 

For the only time in the programme, Liz couldn't say everything she was thinking out loud. But it was written all over her face: 'This woman has escaped from a Hitchcock movie.'

This documentary was not aimed at those who agree. It was a counterblast, as Baroness Jane Campbell put it, to all those who 'think they're doing us a great favour by giving us this choice'

Everywhere Liz Carr looked on telly, she said, in drama, sport or reality shows, disabled people were depicted either as 'charity cases' or 'inspiration porn

Everyone she talked to, whether in favour of a change in the law or against it, only confirmed her own certainties. 

If she could have met somebody with an eloquence and passion to equal her own, arguing the opposite viewpoint — Dame Esther Rantzen, for instance — the result would have been a richer debate.

Like Liz, though, I believe the taboo on assisted dying exists for good reason. Shatter it, and many disabled, mentally ill or elderly people will be in danger of being coerced into suicide. Not every vulnerable person has a loving, supportive partner or child who wants only the best for them.

The danger is that those people, too, have already made up their minds

Claire's Observations:  The US needs better choices  for its "financially disabled" and better choices for people who are left with excruciating pain, and believe that an "assisted death"  is the only way out. We need to "put the brakes on" definitely for people who are both financially and medically disabled, and give them better choices than death.  And if someone needs extensive treatment for pain, like morphine, why not?!?  

 And yes, I understand the need for hospice treatment completely, for people who are terminally ill; we had a friend on Oahu who went through the hospice process, and died pretty quickly, and relatively pain free.

But folks, let's not be in a mad hurry to put people down, like old dogs, who have outlived their usefulness; this puts us on a morally slippery slope, and that journey may be a place from which this nation may never recover.

COVID Propaganda Roundup: The latest updates on the “new normal” – chronicling the lies, distortions, and abuses by the ruling class.

Via American Heart Association , October 2023 

Health experts are redefining cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, prevention and management, according to a new American Heart Association presidential advisory published today in the Association’s flagship journal Circulation.

Various aspects of cardiovascular disease that overlap with kidney disease, Type 2 diabetes and obesity support the new approach. For the first time, the American Heart Association defines the overlap in these conditions as cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic (CKM) syndrome. People who have or are at risk for cardiovascular disease may have CKM syndrome…

According to the American Heart Association’s 2023 Statistical Update, 1 in 3 U.S. adults have three or more risk factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders and/or kidney disease. CKM affects nearly every major organ in the body, including the heart, brain, kidney and liver. However, the biggest impact is on the cardiovascular system, affecting blood vessels and heart muscle function, the rate of fatty buildup in arteries, electrical impulses in the heart and more.”

Although the diagnostic designation CKM only materialized last fall, according to recently released data from the Journal of the American Medical Association, a full 90% of Americans might be afflicted.

Via Healthline (emphasis added):

“A new study has revealed that roughly 90% of Americans may have cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic (CKM) syndrome.

The risks are greatest among older adults, men, and Black individuals, the report, which was published in JAMA Wednesday, found.

The American Heart Association (AHA) introduced a new staging system in 2023 — called CKM syndrome — to better treat and manage cardiovascular, kidney, and metabolic diseases, since they are deeply connected and often require a multidisciplinary approach.

CKM syndrome is a systemic disorder that has links between heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and obesity.”

Via Journal of the American Medical Association (emphasis added):

Almost 90% of US adults met criteria for CKM syndrome (stage 1 or higher) and 15% met criteria for advanced stages, neither of which improved between 2011 and 2020. The lack of progress, in part, may reflect concomitant improvement and worsening of different risk factors over time. Substantial between-subgroup differences in advanced stages were observed, with older age, men, and Black adults at increased risk.”

A 90% diagnosis rate for a newborn medical condition impacting multiple organs simultaneously would seem to beg for deep, deliberate, comprehensive reflection within the medical community — the kind of sweeping mobilization of resources seen during Operation Warp Speed — to ferret out root causes, which in other contexts, like mass migration, the likes of the Karamel-uh entity are exceptionally curious about.

Claire's Observations: And this, of course, has utterly nothing to do with the MRNA shots, mandated and "sold" by governmental and medical authorities, right?!? 

Deep Throat, that source for Woodward and Bernstein in their reporting on the Watergate fiasco, was entirely right;  follow the money here.  And not only the money made by Pfizer and Moderna, but the money earned by Medical Establishments and HMOS for pushing the MRNA shots, as though they were "candy" for the human immune system, which has proven to be the polar opposite.

Folks, these shots were ultimately never about "your health", but only for one thing:  all the Benjamins they created.  And remember; the only job of any corporation, is to see a return on its investments to their shareholders. That's it, period, end of discussion.
