Eight “Militant” Doctors Arrested for Plotting to Treat Patients

Editor’s Note: This isn’t even meant to be funny; it’s just an exercise in replacing certain words in a news story about a militia with others about healthcare and considering the results.

Federal agents from the Internal Revenue Service, Bureau of Investigation, and Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Rationing Board swarmed a makeshift health clinic in Michigan yesterday, arresting eight doctors who were audaciously planning to treat patients without government authority.

Agents moved quickly against the group, known as Primum Non Nocere (Latin for “first, do no harm”), because its members were planning to treat patients sometime in April, prosecutors said. Authorities seized Band-Aids in the raid but would not say whether they found any medicine.

The arrests have dealt “a severe blow to a dangerous organization that today stands accused of conspiring to levy war against nationalized healthcare,” said Attorney General Eric Holder.

Authorities said the arrests underscored the dangers of homegrown anti-national healthcare extremism of the sort seen before 2009, when 2,375,000 people who had health insurance died versus the 45,000 people who died with none.

In an indictment, unsealed today, prosecutors said the group began training to treat patients without federal authority before pResident Barack Obama was elected in 2008, each spending about a decade and hundreds of thousands of dollars learning to diagnose and treat patients without some dweeb in the District of Criminals with a six-figure-salaried desk job, thanks to a friend in Congress, telling them how.

Frank Burns, 54, of Clayton, Mich., and one of his sons were identified as the ringleaders of the group. Burns, who was known as “Doc,” organized the group in whitecoat fashion, and members were assigned secret names, prosecutors said. Ranks ranged from “attending physician” to “intern,” according to the group’s Web site.

“It started out as a Hippocratic Oath thing,” said Mary Burns, his ex-wife. “You go to a medicine cabinet. You put a Band-Aid on someone’s cut without permission from the Health Rationing Board. You take your chances. I think Frank started to take it a little too far when he decided to treat hangnails.”

Prosecutors said Burns had identified certain people near his home as potential patients. He and other members discussed luring the people to the Primum Non Nocere offices, using real medicine to treat them, saving a dying patient after a traffic accident, or convincing patients they should tell family members about the care they’d received, according to the indictment. After such actions, the group allegedly planned to spread out into the community and offer their services at discounted rates in a competitive standoff with the law.

“It is believed by the Primum Non Nocere that this engagement would then serve as a catalyst for a more widespread uprising against nationalized healthcare,” the indictment said.

The charges against the eight include seditious conspiracy, plotting to levy war against U.S. health care financing law; possessing medical equipment during a crime of doing no harm; teaching the practice of medicine; and attempting to use a weapon of mass benevolence — homemade tongue depressors. The defendants were sent to Gitmo, the former prison for Islamic terrorists now serving as a holding cell for people who violate national healthcare policy.

Primum Non Nocere says on its Web site its name means “First, do no harm” and describes the words as part of a secret language that, thanks to Obamacare, fewer will now be privileged to know. The group quotes several medical manuals and declares: “We believe that the greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians and now bureaucrats who run them; one knows how to keep people alive, the other knows how to use Microsoft Excel.”

The site features a picture of 17 men in white coats, all holding large stethoscopes, and includes videos of men armed with patient charts running through an emergency room. Each wears a shoulder patch that bears a staff entwined by two serpents in the form of a double helix and surmounted by wings.

I’m way behind schedule this morning, so I’ll point you in the direction of Marathon Pundit — Topeka, Fred Phelps, Tea Party Express III. What could possibly go wrong?

TPX TV Topeka at 10:00 am CST; Tulsa at 4:00 pm

More to come…

***UPDATE: This just in from Andrea Shea King in Topeka, Kansas–TPX III:

Andrea reported to me this morning that it’s pouring rain in Topeka and the TPX rally was moved inside. As they were riding the bus to the venue, most figured no one would show up in this downpour. While talking with Andrea, the bus turned on the street where the rally is to be held, and there they were… crowds of cheering, freedom-loving Americans standing out in the rain with umbrellas, signs, and flags!! I could hear the cheers over the phone, overwhelming.

UPDATE II: Andrea reports that Lloyd Marcus hit the stage with “Singin’ in the Rain,” and the crowd joined in.

It’s a great day to be an American.

In the World War II Battle of the Bulge, in which US Army forces under the command of Gen. Anthony McAuliffe were outgunned and outnumbered by Nazis who surrounded them at the town of Bastogne, Gen. McAuliffe was offered the option to surrender, his response was simply “Nuts.”

MICHIGAN: Tea Party Express to Make Massive Push

Tea Party Express Coming to Michigan for Massive Tea Party Effort

*8 Tea Party Rallies – Most of Any State in the Nation

*National Media Will Embed & Cover Events

*Michigan Grassroots Leader To Join Tour

*Bart Stupak to be Targeted for Defeat

The Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org) will make major headlines in the Great Lake State April 8th – 11th as thousands upon thousands of tea party activists will rally across the state.

8 Tea Party Express rallies will take place across the Upper & Lower Peninsula.

Michigan grassroots tea party leader, Joan Fabiano, will help lead the rallies across the state and will travel aboard the Tea Party Express buses.

And perhaps most notably, a major effort will be launched to Defeat Congressman Bart Stupak, the “sellout” who led a pack of self-described “pro-life” Democrats to provide the votes for the recent passage of the government-run health care plan.

Complete details will follow in the days to come. This will be a historic chapter in the tea party movement and it will take place in Michigan – a state where failed leadership by tax-and-spend politicians has played a major role in crippling the state’s economy.

And Don’t Let the Door Hit You in the…

This is awesome! Brava Dr. Cassell, brava!!

The Orlando Sentinel – Doctor tells Obama supporters: Go elsewhere for health care


MOUNT DORA — A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care “elsewhere.”

“I’m not turning anybody away — that would be unethical,” Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. “But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it.”

The sign reads: “If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years.”

And may there be many, many more doctors who feel this way. Let’s go back to cash and credit, use bartering, ditch the insurance companies altogether and tell Obama’s healthcare minions to not let the door hit them in the proverbial ass… Change they can believe in.
