Ocshner Health, Louisiana’s largest non-profit, academic, healthcare system, is not only dealing with the major catastrophic disaster resulting from Super Hurricane Ida which hit this past weekend, but is still coping with the traumas of the ongoing health pandemic of Covid-19 with markedly increased hospitalizations over the past two months.

On Wednesday, Ocshner held a press conference led by the President and CEO Warner Thomas. Below is the rough transcript of the first part of that Zoom press conference. (The transcript has been lightly edited. For the complete interview, watch the video:

How challenging for the State of Louisiana is Covid-19's omnipresent Delta variant? What impact is it having upon the state's premier health system? 

Today, the President and CEO of Ochsner Health, Warner Thomas, was a guest on Morning Joe to discuss the raging Covid-19 Delta virus. Thomas said it is the fourth surge in Louisiana.  During the interview, CEO Thomas talked about the impact the virus was having upon medical services, even to the point that over the past ten days, Ochsner had to turn away 300 transfer patients from other facilities due to the level of COVID patients Ochsner is treating and due to the level and pressure on staffing.

Ochsner is Louisiana’s largest nonprofit academic health center and is the state’s largest private employer. The health system has facilities in New Orleans, Jefferson Parish, Kenner, the River Parishes, Baton Rouge, the Northshore, the West Bank, Raceland, Houma, St. Bernard, Shreveport, and in Mississippi.

IT ALL SMELLS SO GASLIGHTING

Republicans, especially Senator Cassidy of Louisiana and Donald Trump of Conspiracy Land, are blaming the Democrats, President Biden, and the media for the recent rise in Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

Cassidy, also a medical doctor, was asked during Fox News Sunday about the recent increase in covid incidents across the nation. Meantime, continuing his assault on the truth, Trump exploded another scud this weekend, designed to spray chaos, regardless of the outcome.

Is Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion covid-19 relief bill good legislation?  Obviously, the Democrats seem onboard. Republicans? Not so much.  Well, "not at all", seems more accurate.

This weekend, the Democrats in the Senate approved the legislation 50-49 and it is now headed to the House for its own vote on Senate changes. Then, if it does get the House ok, the instrument is on to the President for his signature.

mask truth 1

For almost one year, instead of being focused upon how to get rid of the coronavirus, thanks to then-President Donald Trump, we debated whether we should wear masks and if we should social distance.  What a waste of time.  And, a waste of life.

During an interview with Jim Brown to discuss Pandemic to the future, the issue of whether we should open up the schools came up in our discussion.  Below is the transcript of this segment of the interview. Below also is the video. I strongly recommend watching the video.

In the first year of the nineteen twenties, when many of our grandparents were alive, people wore masks to protect themselves from the Spanish Flu. Some went so far as to put them on house cats to protect the mousers.

The lights are dimming. The picture is not pretty.

We're weeks away from Election Day 2020. We're looking for the next leader to have the presidential demeanor, the control of personality to lead this country at a time where more nations are only a red button away from our armageddon.

propaganda 3
If the goal was for Donald Trump’s chief physician, Dr. Sean Conley, to clear up the confusion he created during Saturday’s press conference, he missed his mark. If anything, the White House physician gave great credence to Trump's critics complaints--that the doctor is taking orders from his client.   

Below is the transcript from today’s press conference in which the doctor updated the public about Trump’s physical status as the president recovers from Covid-19.  Below the transcript are my own observations:
