Utah Ranks 2nd at 94.9% on the Corruption Index according to BestLife

The foregoing report is based on a compilation of metrics from “The Department of Justice,” “National Practitioner Database,” “The Swamp Index,” and “The Center for Public Integrity.”  “The Center” published the following, visual summary titled “State Integrity Investigation.”

Utah should have been first and most corrupt, but Senator “Opioid Orrin” Hatch retired so we slipped to sleazy second.  For Hatch exposés, go HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Let’s begin to unfold how the Pandemic Panic has contributed to the degradation of the U.S. Healthcare industry, Utah, and more specifically UnitedHealth Group and certain Utah institutions and individuals.  We begin with Utah’s pathetic “leaders” who are scheming, conniving, and operating under the philosophy of…

Utah’s “Leaders” Are the Problem

Below is an undoctored photo taken on the Utah house floor.

Utah’s unpolished, unethical, unelected and elected Officials, Media Owners/Publishers/Editors, Business, and Ecclesiastical Leaders should take a long, hard look in the mirror.  Their impertinent posturing, prevaricating, pontificating, preaching, demanding, and dictating to us about COVID from rotundas, publications, podiums, and pulpits, is revolting.  Many care less about honesty, integrity, humanity, fidelity, and “true religion” all-the-while plundering and pillaging the public domain in service of “self.”

Global protests seen HERE are widespread.
Utah is awakening! 

Democrats Avoid Angry Constituents By Avoiding Constituents

Meet those at the Nexus of Utah’s “Otherworld”

In the midst of the COVID “Mandemic,” Utah’s Goodfella Cabal pirate and profit with impunity as financial ruin runs rampant across our State and the Nation.  Below are a few of the most culpable, Utah politicians owned and controlled by Big Pharma and “Health Care” rackets:

Utah’s history of notoriously corrupt “pay-to-play” misconduct makes our State known — far and wide — as the Affinity Fraud Capital of America.  The BestLife report and ranking was more confirmation.

Utah’s so-called “leaders” are responsible for this mess. They have gilded a lily rooted in lip service and propaganda ROT.  They dance with devils and rationalize their reprehensible conduct as “sharp business practices.”

As in Biblical days of hellfire, brimstone, pestilence, and plague, we now face a maelstrom of devastation and disaster.  The above criminal cabal must be held liable for the senseless Pandemic Panic they created, perpetuated, and prolonged. 

The short video below, dubbed “From Wuhan to Wall Street,” features Dr. David E. Martin, National Intelligence Analyst and founder of “IQ 100 Index” (NYSE).  He explains how Anthony “Fauci-Minh” Fauci, the CDC, and the “Deep State” are all collaborating with the Communist Chinese regime to destroy our Nation, People, and Civilization.

Utah and our Goodfellas are inextricably intertwined with China, COVID, Masks, and Business.

Utah Dances with the UnitedHealth Devil

Speaking of business, “The World’s Fifth-Largest Economy: U.S. Health Care“ is liberally infested with Utah’s podium pounders, propaganda publishers, and pulpit puppeteers. 

Ancillary to, and embedded in, Utah and this rogue “health” cabal is UnitedHealth Group. This entity has surrendered ~$603,461,164 in fines and penalties for egregious conduct, including making “False Claims” and related matters to the tune of  ~$120,700,000.

See the specifics in the “Violation Tracker” below:

How problematic and pervasive is UnitedHealth Group?  From “Major U.S. Health Insurers Report Big Profits, Benefiting From the Pandemic,” Reed Abelson, New York Times, Aug. 5, 2020:

The nation’s largest insurers, like Anthem and UnitedHealth, had second-quarter profits so large they will have to pay back some of those earnings to consumers.

From, “CEO Pay Watch: UnitedHealth’s David Wichmann made more than $52 million last year,” Star Tribune, Apr. 26, 2020:

While some executives have taken salary cuts or deferrals since the economic downturn related to COVID-19, UnitedHealth executives have not.  UnitedHealth has not laid off or furloughed employees and instead raised pay for some employees in high-impact areas.

Utah’s 800 lb. Gorilla, the LDS Church, Lopes into the Limelight … again.

Utah’s political “leaders” (ie. Utah Goodfellas) take their behavioral cues and endless excuse-making from a cabal comprised of powerful corporations and interests like the LDS Church, The Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, et al.  We call them the “5th Estates” of government in Utah.

The Securities and Exchange Commission Report of LDS Church holdings reflects MONEY that is companion to unlimited POWER and INFLUENCE in the healthcare industry.

LDS UnitedHealth Group holdings = ~$471,534,000.00

LDS Total Healthcare Holdings =

In Utah, we “will do anything for money,” won’t we?

We’ve been analyzing top-to-bottom the enormity of the health care Leviathan’s “corpus” contained in ~400,000 entries on Excel Spreadsheets, narrative information, and other data harvested from available sources.

We allege that at the top, senior officials within the U.S. Health and Human Services have conspired for, and acted as agents in behalf of, UnitedHealth Group.

We allege that they have managed to craft an “Artifice and Design” to perpetuate one of the most significant schemes of our time.  Down at street levels, we have uncovered the potential abuse and misuse of COVID Relief funds … the ultimate fallout from top down corruption.

We will name names and numbers in due time.

U.S. Health Care from a Global Perspective, 2019: Higher Spending, Worse Outcomes? 
“The Commonwealth Fund” (1/30/21)

Utah’s Paul Ray says, “Hold My Beer!”

Utah House of Representatives clown Paul “Super Size Me” Ray was recently exposed for being Big Pharma’s go-to biotch, and for his addiction to abusing campaign funds on fast food.

At last tally, Ray’s greasy take from the “Health Care” industry is $66,100.

In his latest “hold my beer” moment, Ray is sponsoring HB 294 which …

“…Provides for the termination of emergency powers and public health emergency powers related to COVID-19 upon reaching the threshold of a total of 1,700,000 people in the state that have either: received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine; or contracted COVID-19 and recovered.”

Note that Utah has a total estimated population of 3,310,770 people.

Ray’s ambition to be Utah’s Health Czar would likely be guaranteed if he switched his preferred gender — which should be relatively easy given his political leanings (er, well, perhaps “lean” is not the best word) and the amount of estrogens he inhales at his favorite fast food troughs.

Fair Warning

Government employees, contractors and all others should be mindful that intimidating, interfering with and/or engaging in any way to discourage the right of a citizen to report shameful, inappropriate, fraudulent or unlawful conduct is a crime. Utilizing office email, or any other means of communication, to further such interference is also criminal conduct strictly prohibited because it aids and abets original, unlawful acts.  Supervisors and Division Heads may be particularly tempted to interfere and are therefore vulnerable and culpable if they do.  The Ole’ Buzzard and Team will duly report any and all unlawful conduct.
