Manufactured Shortage

Something bigger at play here?

  • The Illinois Department of Public Health quietly removed thousands of available hospital beds from their data showing how much capacity Illinois’ medical centers have. 

    The number of available hospital beds is closely tracked by the state as a barometer of how much stress the COVID-19 pandemic is placing on Illinois’ medical system. The state has more than 30,000 total general use hospital beds. The lower the number of free beds, the worse the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming. 

    For overall hospital beds, the state lowered the number of free beds to 8,132 from 10,232 from Nov. 18 to Nov. 19. IDPH removed 495 available ICU beds in the same time frame, taking the number from 1,113 to 618 free ICU beds.

So to make it look worse and push the COVID panic, the IDPH "removes" beds from circulation, driving up the percentage of occupied beds.

If there was actually some sort of "shortage" then Fatass would be re-opening the McCormick Place Mobile Hospital and be pissing away another $80 million in scarce taxpayer funds.

Scamdemic - these assholes still want to screw the economy so the Biden / Harris / Sanders ticket can implement communism starting with a government takeover of healthcare. They are screwing the economy to try to win the two US Senate seats up for re-election in January 2021. The manufactured crisis continues. We’d have millions dead by now in the US if the Chinese flu was that bad.

"Manufactured Crisis"

"Lies Of Omission"

"Weasel Words"

"Slippery Syntax"

"Deliberate Lack Of Context"


"Smug And Nasty-Assed Condescension"

COVID-19 was supposed to dissipate
like a fart in the Sahara once the
leftists "won" the Oval Office.

A Tera-Tonnage (more like TERROR-Tonnage)
yield truth bomb is going to land on these
blue state mayors and governors when the
election fuckery evidence is presented and
by association COVID-19 and the associated
ties with off-shore powers trying to subvert,
undermine, nullify and overthrow this republic.

Stir in a little cynical leftism, malicious intent and the
demo-commiecrat evil, society wrecking/liberty hating
machinations in keeping the Wu Flu narrative at a fast
and vicious boil, become clearly evident as "The Big Steal"
is beginning to come apart like a dog rocket on the sidewalk
during a driving rain.

Hopefully, Jan 21, 2021 is when "We, The People"
will stand validated and justified as the course
of REAL correction is being set.

These same Covid tricks are playing out across the globe. Plandemic is being used for the Big Reset, the target is the Middle Class. They want to go back to a Feudal society- Oligarchs with Billions living in opulence, the rest of us eating bugs and subsisting in boxes.

1000 Businesses that each do $5 Billion/yr are in a group called: "The World Economic Forum"

Klaus Schwab is Frontman and talks about the "Financial Reset". Schwab's "Build Back Better" crap is coming out of EVERY World Leader right now- the signal that they are onboard. Biden used Schwab's slogan.

Well worth the watch- spells out "the Plan" they have for the World (we rent everything;own nothing). Dr. Evil himself speaks. Video is from Ireland perspective, but same message all over World.

The World Economic Forum (WEF), based in Cologny, Geneva Canton, Switzerland, is an international NGO, founded in 1971. The WEF's mission is stated as "committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas".

The first wave of the pandemic traveled slowly across the country, which allowed hospitals to recruit agency (temporary) workers to staff their empty beds. Most hospitals in the region hired such temporary workers to staff their empty beds. One of the reasons why McCormick was never going to take off was because no one could identify the required health care workers to actually generate the care there.

The current wave is hitting the entire country at the same time. Worse, a large number of hospital workers are out with the virus or other illnesses at this time, to the point where their ability to maintain their baseline tempo of operations has been degraded, at some institutions to the point where they have already had to cut back on scheduled procedures. The nationwide impact of the current surge has created a nationwide shortage of temporary workers.

The real question is could they staff the surge capacity that they claim? For many hospitals, the answer is likely no.

And how many die of other things and Covid still listed as cause of death? One person, can't recall the state, said their grandmother in a nursing home was tested 3 times and negative 3 times, grandma died and they listed Covid as the cause of death. I'm sure that has happened a lot. Can't trust any of the Covid "facts" or even the number of beds left. Yes it can kill but this is political. Keep everyone scared. And of course the China Virus is all Trump's fault so they will keep on with this to the nth degree if he does win reelection.

I read in New Mexico some of the grocery stores were forced to close by the state due to Covid cases. Walmart is not going to like that at all. So you have these long lines and old people and folks with disabilities all having to wait in a very long line. Another unhinged female democrat igovernor steering the ship. I don't believe a thing the state government says about this.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Grisham (D) issued a 5-person limit on Thanksgiving gatherings in her state over COVID-19 but admitted that authorities “can’t enforce” such a policy. A 5 person limit, lol. Oregon’s Democrat Governor Kate Brown imposed crazy measures, including jail time and steep fines for anybody who hosts large Thanksgiving gatherings. Just put out a BLM flag in the yard and they won't touch them. The CDC suggests a virtual Thanksgiving. Virtual presents are next. Christmas will be the same way with the elitists wagging their finger and doing as they want to do over the holidays.

Sort of a Christmas anti-lockdown song.

The article explains that the shift in reporting was to reflect beds that can be served at currently available staffing levels. This blog is constantly addressing manpower shortages in CPD and the adverse affects of those shortages. Do you not believe that hospitals are also subject to manpower limitations? My friends who work in hospitals tell me their shifts have been crazy, and I have no reason to suspect they are lying. Not everything is a conspiracy. This cultural shift toward believing every conspiracy is pervasive paranoia.

Manufacturing corruption takes time to perfect. Trial and error and bet they’ll get better this next round. Fricken assembly line at the welfare handouts counter.

Don’t forget no hospital beds means certain donor hotels get to be reserved by the politicians (The Pig & Toad) when the next new stimulus package gets passed. It’s what they’re all awaiting and why there’s this manufactured Covid’s Second Coming. Once that m9ney is doled out again to the faithful hard working pollsters, the barometer for returning to the new normals is when CTU-CPS sticks its head out of the hole sometime in February.

And also with the Second Coming lasting another 3 months, when more than enough downtown real estate is abandoned due to foreclosure, lease termination and/or shutting down and moving out, a select group of speculators will be cash ready to buy for pennies on the dollar. Include the shuttered MacCormack’s Place and Navy’s Pier and a portly governor looking to walk off the job and back into the land-grab bidness.

For the record - Hyatt Schaumburg netted almost $3 million from IL Covid’s allotment to reserve the entire hotel for 2 months, April 5-June4 and only housed 31 guest Covid patients. Embassy in Schaumburg got just over $2 mil for 210 guest patient in the same period. Yes, you are correct that Schaumburg is in Cook County.

AngryToad Imbecile Larri Moneybags once predicted the City will be paying for 2,000 hotel rooms ($175 a night) and would cost an estimated $1million per month, whether this hotel room money was already doled out is unknown but $470 Million in CARES Act money Larri took in is long gone and she still managed to more than double the budget deficit anyway. Oh, and Larri gave out $5 million to create Chicago’s Resiliency Fund in July (Covid Cowboy started his new gig too) that gives free $1000 to every city occupant not eligible (never worked and paid taxes) for Stimulus payments. These funds were deposited with the corrupt Resurrection Project and Open Society Foundations as the sole representative payee for the applicants seeking this free do nothing/ paid nothing gubmint money...IF, they show up.

You bet it’s manufactured.
The only thing missing is the MAGA hat.

But are they swamped do to more actual covid cases, or because hospitals have taken more beds out of circulation, as the article implies? If you have 50 beds and only 25 are used, your at 50% capacity. But, if you take those extra 25 beds away, now you are at 100% capacity, which makes the "pandemic" sound worse.

It is my understanding that there are hotels W/ a percentage of rooms in a holding pattern for Cops, Firefighters, Doctors and Nurses to stay so they don’t infect family members. This is through FEMA as I understand. So my question is this, how many rooms are being “held” for medical emergencies and are empty but FEMA is paying a “retainer”. Of those rooms how much is Gov. Rotundo’s family making through their empty hotel rooms that FEMA is paying for at I am sure a higher rate than the hotels regular rate. No wonder the numbers are “massaged” so it seems there are more cases than there really is!!!!!! So you die in a car wreck but you have COVID so you didn’t die in a car accident you died of COVID related sickness. When will this end????

Your medical needs will be approved by the government. The choices will no longer be your decision to make. If it is determined medical care for your sick parent or child is too much, they'll be sent home to die. Or left in a hospital room until the funeral home picks them up.

You can't have what could have been "Northern Illinois Covid Hospital." Sufferers must be distributed among all the area's nursing homes to kill off more of the less-profitable elderly - and this "second wave" is very noticeably hitting the doors now.

The healthy residents have been locked in with the sick for 260 DAYS now, and there is no end in sight. There is lots of money to be made here.

COVID-19 Lockdown: Nursing Home Residents Risk Eviction If They Go For A Walk

"Instead of infection control, the motivation to keep residents from leaving boils down to money.

"There have always been problems with nursing homes finding ways to kick residents — especially Medicaid residents — out so that they can make that bed available for a more lucrative Medicare patient."

"Most nursing homes are for-profit, so they want shorter-term residents on Medicare, which provides a higher reimbursement rate."

Healthy individuals with no symptoms are being told they are sick with this test.. Dr Fauci already stated asymptomatic people are not the driving force of an out break... the driver of outbreaks are always symptomatic people, and then he stated mask don't work. But we all these scientist and doctors are bought and paid for just like these politicians. May God bless us all who are trying to get out of this maxtrix.
