AAPS News October 2022 – Criminalizing Dissent

Volume 78, no. 10  October 2022

President Biden famously said: “For those brave right-wing Americans…if you want to fight against the country, you need an F-15. You need something little more than a gun” (https://tinyurl.com/58mmvn5j). A gun is also of no use against SWAT teams in riot gear, search warrants, subpoenas, indictments, prison terms, and crushing fines.

  At present, the FBI is concentrating on those who question the 2020 election results or who might strongly and effectively support pro-Trump or anti-leftwing candidates in future elections.

In what Tucker Carlson called a “full-scale purge” of Trump supporters, about 50 very broad search warrants and/or subpoenas from the “Capitol Siege” section of the Department of Justice, demanding communications relating to election irregularities, were served. Such activities are, we thought, protected by the First Amendment (https://tinyurl.com/2jr3r2ye).

But it’s not just about electoral politics, and it’s not new. Melania Trump’s wardrobe was searched for documents. Decades ago, agents searched shoeboxes in a physician’s closet, looking for medical records in a failed attempt to prove Medicaid fraud (AAPS News, June and November 1990, August 1992). Agents pointed a gun at an innocent physician’s 9-year-old son, while searching his home for records (AAPS News, July 1997).

Mike Lindell of MyPillow, prominent in alleging election fraud, had his cell phone seized, keeping him from conducting his business. Two top Trump advisors also had their phones seized, according to Judicial Watch. Many physicians have had their computers and patient records seized in the War on Drugs.

It’s forever war: on healthcare fraud, on drugs, on terrorism,  on a virus, on “climate change,” on “misinformation,” on “white supremacy,” on “extremism.” An FBI whistleblower stated that agents are now pressured to label cases as “domestic violent extremism.” The increasing cases being identified throughout the country are all connected to Jan 6 (tinyurl.com/4m7wpnub).

When Did It Begin?

Some say it started in 2001 with 9/11. A quantum leap in federal power and surveillance resulted when the PATRIOT Act quickly emerged from somewhere full-grown. Americans were  reminded of the horror, again, in the 21st anniversary memorial.

Is the 9/11 Narrative a test of Americans’ credulity? We repeatedly see planes crashing into WTC-1 and WTC-2, but not the  late-afternoon collapse of WTC-7, purportedly due to a few office fires. Yet an enormous recent fire in China failed to bring down a 42-story skyscraper (https://tinyurl.com/yhpzjk6h); indeed, WTC-7 is the only skyscraper ever collapsed by fire.

There are other questions, and conspiracy theories. Recall the original conspiracy theory about the assassination of President Kennedy: that Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, did not kill JFK. A single accomplice creates a conspiracy. Did Osama bin Laden, acting alone, orchestrate 9/11 from a hospital bed in Pakistan (https://tinyurl.com/5dwy4fa3)?

If the official Narrative is true despite many contradictions and the rapid destruction of evidence, it raises serious doubts about the capability of U.S. F-15 and F-16 air defenses.

To the regime, the events of Jan 6 are comparable to those of 9/11, except that the former was an “inside job” involving many co-conspirators who are still being tracked down. One woman was awakened by three armed FBI agents the day after Biden’s anti-MAGA speech, on the basis of a false anonymous tip that she had been at the Capitol on Jan 6 (tinyurl.com/36dmb25v).

Apocalyptic, “existential” threats, to Americans emotionally primed by the image of the rapid destruction of two of the safest structures in the world, have much of the population in a state of chronic terror, longing for government-ensured safety. Perhaps that accounts for the results of a Rasmussen poll. Asked about Biden’s assertion that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” 48% of likely voters agree, including 36% who strongly agree. Only 47% disagree, with 39% disagreeing strongly, reports Paul Craig Roberts (https://tinyurl.com/576xf6dj).

The COVID-19 Test

COVID-19 measures are the test for compliance and “social responsibility,” which billions of people passed, states Mridul Kaushik, mission director for the Smart Cities Mission of the World Economic Forum. Similar measures are being extrapolated into WEF “climate change” protocols (tinyurl.com/39the9zm).  People will only be able to rent, not own, what the system permits—no cash. Deprivation of access to food and energy could suppress dissent with no need for prosecution (and due process).

As EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said prior to the election of Giorgia Meloni as prime minister of Italy, “We will see the results of the vote in Italy. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools” (https://tinyurl.com/bdzbfk92).

Germany is leading the way. Dissenters from COVID measures are not just being stigmatized and demonized, but criminalized as dangerous “extremists,” who are “anti-democratic and/or delegitimizing the state in a way that endangers security.” For example, they protest non-violently, or speak out against, or criticize, or satirize the global ideology called the “New Normal” (https://tinyurl.com/ydss42sz).


Flashback

The COVID-19 pandemic response is eerily similar to the response to smallpox 135 years ago, when vaccination mandates were accompanied by increasingly harsh punitive measures, writes Steve Kirsch. “The solution then was not trying to convince decision makers using rational scientific arguments. It was a mass public protest that resulted in the abandonment of what the ‘experts’ were saying to do and adoption of new methods that worked that were opposed by the medical community” (https://tinyurl.com/mr2vtx9m). Vaccination still got the credit.

One example: By the end of 1868, more than 95% of the inhabitants of Chicago had been vaccinated. After the Great Fire of 1871, vaccination was made a condition of receiving relief supplies. A devastating smallpox epidemic hit in 1872. More than 2,000 persons contracted smallpox, of whom more than 25% died, with the fatality rate among children under 5 being the highest ever recorded (https://tinyurl.com/yc2vw4s5).


Vaccination Updates

Denmark Bans COVID Jab under Age 50. The Danish Health Authority, after previously banning COVID-19 shots for nearly everyone under age 18, has expanded the prohibition to age 50, unless patients are at “higher risk of becoming severely infected.” It said that “the purpose of vaccination is not to prevent infection with COVID-19,” and that there is already good immunity in the population (https://tinyurl.com/2txwembz).

EU May Mandate Shots. European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen stated that we have a horrible pandemic, and life-saving vaccines, but they are not being used adequately everywhere. About one-third of the European population is not vaccinated. Discussion is needed about making  vaccination mandatory (https://tinyurl.com/4j9xwjv6).

Excess Mortality. The European country with the second highest vaccination rate (Portugal) has the highest excess mortality, and the country with the lowest vaccination rate (Bulgaria) has the lowest excess mortality, but “correlation does not prove causality,” and “there’s nothing to see here,” says Mark Steyn (https://tinyurl.com/5axe6fzh).

Death Rate Higher in Vaccinated. Based on data from the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS), Dr. Marian Laderoute calculated that mortality from both COVID-19 and other causes was higher in vaccinated persons (2.16 times and 11.41 times as high, respectively, in December 2021). She states that rescinding the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) in May 2021 would have prevented nearly 400,000 deaths from all causes between Jun 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022 (https://tinyurl.com/mpnnr4y4).

Pregnancy Outcomes. In the thousands of pages of Pfizer documents that a court has ordered released each month, it appears that the outcome was known in only 32 of the 270 pregnancies that occurred in vaccinated women. Only one normal outcome was reported. Most of the fetuses or newborns died, writes Dr. Pierre Kory (https://tinyurl.com/ysaxrjv5).


“[T]he people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”

Hermann Goering


Threats to the State

Surveillance of “Extremists.” The Office for the Protection of  the Constitution, the German domestic intelligence agency, set  up a new department specifically tasked with handling cases (such as coronavirus deniers) that “seek to delegitimize the state,” since they do not fit the mold posed by the usual, politically driven groups, including Islamic extremists. Psychologist and conspiracy expert Pia Lamberty said: “The danger of Querdenken [lateral thinking]” she said, “has long been underestimated.” When “deniers” drew 40,000 protesters to Berlin, a small number managed to jump police lines and climb Parliament’s outside stairs. This was characterized as an “attack on the heart of democracy” (NY Times 2/28/21, tinyurl.com/msfnwbxu).

California Senator Richard Pan. “These [anti-vaccine] extremists have not yet been held accountable, so they continue to escalate violence against the body public…. We must now summon the political will to demand that domestic terrorists face consequences for their words and actions. Our democracy and our lives depend on it…. They’ve been building alliances with white supremacists, conspiracy theorists and [others] on the far right” (Wash Post 2/28/21, https://tinyurl.com/4jhhkhhz).

Peter Hotez. “The [UN] and…governments must take direct, even confrontational, approaches…, and move to dismantle anti-vaccine groups…. Efforts…should include experts who have tackled complex global threats such as terrorism, cyber attacks and nuclear armament, because anti-science is now approaching similar levels of peril” (Nature 4/27/21, tinyurl.com/ya6bbe24).

Climate Police. The Ministry of Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is building a new facility in Winnipeg that will house a firearms armory, interrogation rooms, biological labs, and intelligence facilities. The Impact Assessment Act (IAA), which was quietly passed in the final days of Trudeau’s majority government, empowers agents of the Ministry of Climate Change to enter premises without a warrant to “verify compliance or prevent non-compliance with [the Act].” Climate Police may also prohibit access to the location entirely. Opponents say this has the potential to cripple the food supply (tinyurl.com/nhzvkv3).

Power Shift to NGOs. An incestuous network of elites was able to overwhelm governments and take control of the global COVID response, without accountability. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the most powerful organization, and Gates is also involved in Gavi, the Wellcome Trust, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). Bolstered by contacts at the highest levels of Western nations and empowered by well-grooved relationships with drug makers, they form a kind of global health monopoly (tinyurl.com/yc7fdn4u)—according to Woke mainstream Politico, which would have dismissed these ideas as right-wing conspiracy theory one month ago.

The Court Versus the Left

The U.S. Supreme Court is no longer a belligerent in the culture war, writes Wesley Stine. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization reversed 20th-century liberalism’s biggest achievement, as accomplished in the Warren and Burger Courts, which consisted of finding increasingly creative ways to say, “The old separation of powers is abolished. We are the real legislature now.”

The Court found itself playing the role that Octavian and his heirs had played in first century Rome, Stine observes. Like early imperial Rome, the U.S. was still nominally a Republic, but its the elected arm had been relegated to the role that the senators, consuls, and tribunes played under the principate—their power was limited to those issues on which the emperor (in our case, the Supreme Court) did not have a strong opinion.

The Left is now losing on abortion, on guns, on religious freedom, and on the powers of regulatory agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The ruling class is very angry. In Orwellian doublespeak, they insist that allowing the abortion issue to be resolved “by citizens trying to persuade one another and then voting” is an attack on democracy. Progressive leaders are dropping their support for judicial supremacy. The Court has lopped off one head of the many-headed hydra. “But the state courts, the universities, the press, the administrative state, and the major corporations are still lined up against the American people, and they will continue to wield the bulk of real power.” Restoring the Republic will be a hard struggle, with an uncertain outcome, in Stine’s view (Chronicles, August 2022, https://tinyurl.com/ycxfywj3).

“The court has only just begun to reshape the country,” laments editorialist Maya Sen (“Save the Supreme Court and Democracy,” Science 8/11/22). But reform is “not impossible.”


Litigation Briefs

NYPD Union Members Ordered to Be Reinstated. New York City police officers who were fired because of the COVID-19 vaccine mandate must be reinstated, ruled Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lyle Frank. The mandate imposed a new condition of employment and issued enforcement beyond monetary sanctions prescribed in the law. The city said it would appeal, likely freezing the judge’s ruling (https://tinyurl.com/2hyxjn9p).

Freedom of Conscience. Physicians cannot be forced to do abortions or to provide transgender drugs or surgeries, ruled the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in Franciscan Alliance v. Becerra. The Biden Administration and the ACLU were attempting to compel performance of these actions under §1557 of the Affordable Care Act (https://tinyurl.com/3cts2s4f).


Tip of the Month: The finest Supreme Court Justice of the last century was Robert H. Jackson, who never attended college and never graduated from law school. He presided in the 1940s and 1950s, and yet is denied credit by leftist law professors. In ruling for the religious liberty of a student, Jackson famously held, “Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.” One of his comments can come in handy amid so many tyrannical prosecutions today: “Any lawyer worth his salt will tell the suspect in no uncertain terms to make no statement to police under any circumstances.”


FBI Invades Home of Pro-Life Activist

At 7 a.m., 25 to 30 heavily armed FBI agents entered the home of Mark Houck, pointing their assault rifles throughout the house and terrifying seven children. Houk was taken away in handcuffs on a charge of assaulting an abortion clinic volunteer a year ago, a charge dismissed by the Philadelphia District Court.  Reportedly, Houck had pushed back against the man, who was verbally abusing his son. Houck has been indicted for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, a felony charge that carries a prison sentence of up to 11 years, and fines of up to $350,000 (https://tinyurl.com/3kmnrbm8). Pro-abortion activists that are attacking pregnancy resource centers are also subject to FACE but are not being prosecuted, states Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) (https://tinyurl.com/5vpukjdf).


JAMA Bemoans Constraints on Agencies

The Supreme Court’s action on vaccine mandates limits the  federal government’s ability to flexibly protect public health, write Lawrence Gostin, J.D., et al. They cite justices dissenting in the OSHA case: it “stymies the Federal Government’s ability to counter unparalleled” threats (JAMA 2/22/22). Biden advisor Ashish Jha, M.D., is “deeply worried” that people are going to start unwinding other vaccine mandates. AMA president George Harmon, M.D., said the Court had “halted one of the most effective tools in the fight against further transmission and death from this aggressive virus.” AMA requires both the primary COVID series and boosters of all 1,200 workers, even those who never report to an office (Abbasi J, et al., JAMA 2/22/22).


Professional Civil Disobedience

According to the AMA Code of Medical Ethics, there may be times when physicians must accept, en masse, fines, licensure suspension, even imprisonment, rather than harm a patient. Past examples include Soviet imprisonment of political prisoners in psychiatric facilities, South Africans filing false reports on prisoners injured by police, and participation in torture. In today’s America, Matthew Wynia, M.D., M.P.H., suggests that professional associations consider supporting physicians who engage in civil disobedience on one issue: participation in illegal abortions: “to repair the moral fabric of our country and the integrity of our profession, which have been so injudiciously ruptured by the Supreme Court” (NEJM 9/15/22, https://tinyurl.com/t596u95b).


The Scarlet ‘E’

The late Angelo Codevilla wrote: “Asking Americans to label one another ‘extremists’ is the most ruinous thing that the woke oligarchy’s malevolent morons are doing to our country. They mean to criminalize insufficient deference to themselves.” Machiavelli recognized that nothing destroys republics more surely than placing anonymous accusations into the hands of rulers.

Codevilla cites the apocryphal story that when the Nazis demanded that Jews in Denmark wear a yellow star, all Danes, starting with King Christian X, put on the star. It is within our power to defang the accusation of extremism in a similar way, he suggests (https://tinyurl.com/4ck3nz2v).


Correspondence

A Model. Chinese officials look at the UK as a cautionary tale of a government placing “human rights above security.” Instead, Xi  Jinping encouraged implementing aspects of the U.S. “war on terror” following the 9/11 attacks. He said to “show absolutely no mercy” in the “struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism.” The “organs of dictatorship” are needed to deal with extremism. Prolonged isolation and detention of Uighurs for “vocational training” is justified by the language of disease. “Freedom is only possible when this ‘virus’ in their thinking is eradicated and they are in good health.” There has been resistance from local officials. In 2017, there were more than 12,000 investigations into party members for violations related to the “fight against separatism” (https://tinyurl.com/mppkjvv7).

The New York Times acquired some 400 pages of leaked Chinese documents (https://tinyurl.com/48n6rx8r).

In the U.S., failure to support “ruling authorities” (hospital administrations) can land a physician in a treatment center for “disruptive” behavior that applies similar methods. The “patients” may be on lockdown for months and not allowed to have any contact with spouse or family—not even phone calls. Coercive drugging may occur. In one case, we learned that a resident physician was threatened with electroconvulsive shock therapy unless he altered his attitude toward the ruling authorities (it was never actually administered). Where are we headed?

It’s the Money. Here’s the secret to the explosion of transgender surgeries. In 2014 Obama modified Medicare/Medicaid law to pay for this. Then in 2016 Obamacare forced such coverage onto private insurers. No wonder Johns Hopkins restarted its sex change program in 2015, and so many other institutions have gotten on the bandwagon. Just 3,256 gender transition procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2016; the next year, the number surged by more than 150%, and in 2020 surpassed 16,000 (https://tinyurl.com/4399cafr).

Shadowbanning Search Engines? If you search my Substack for “rabbi,” “rabbis,” or a similar word, many articles come up, but not the one about rabbis misleading people on COVID jabs’ effect on fertility. Is it because Substack doesn’t want people to see my discussion of a 82% miscarriage rate in women jabbed during the first two trimesters of pregnancy, based on an article in NEJM (https://tinyurl.com/2tbazr53)?

James Hill, M.D., San Francisco, CA


“Science.” Dr. Paul Thomas is suing the Oregon Medical Board for $35 million (https://tinyurl.com/mu6cfc8t). Apparently, he did a study, got it published in a journal, and the state medical board suspended his license because they don’t like his findings. Whatever happened to free speech, free scientific inquiry? A plaque at the University of Wisconsin (1894) states: “Whatever may be the limitations that trammel inquiry elsewhere we believe that the great state University of Wisconsin should forever encourage the continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.”  

Albert Fisher, M.D., Oshkosh, WI


Howling at the Moon. The administrative state and its voice, the corporate media, are having a temper tantrum over Supreme Court decisions—demanding that we “discipline” or ditch the “rogue” Court. Or even the Constitution or the Union itself. One might think that threatening justices and their wives would be more likely to warrant the term “domestic terrorism” than discussing the merits of early COVID treatment or the dangers of novel genetic vaccine technology. What is causing the extreme anguish is the Court’s attempt to leash the out-of-control Administrative State and bring it to heel. And to force Congress to stop delegating responsibility to a bureaucracy that has morphed into a corporatist inverted totalitarian state Mastiff.

Robert Malone, M.D., https://tinyurl.com/3t426ytz


Thinking Points. CDC budget, $10.6 billion; FDA budget, $6.1 billion; Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine revenue, $33 billion; Moderna COVID-19 vaccine revenue, $21 billion; advance purchase order for reformulated shots, $3.2 billion; efficacy trials for the rejiggered boosters, 8 mice. The most expensive BALB mouse costs about $48.91. The antibody tests cost $391.28. Add a bit for mouse food. No autopsies were done.

Toby Rogers, Ph.D.


Misinformed Rabbis. I have read that two respected Zionist rabbis said that the unvaccinated are not following rabbinical law and should be barred from worshipping in temples. They are ignorant of medical facts. Jewish law simply says that health should supersede any Talmudic law.

Joseph Scherzer, M.D., Paradise Valley, AZ


Driven by Fear. World-wide bureaucrats learned from this two-year experiment in lockdowns and mass vaccinations that abject fear can be effective in population control but destroys the world’s economies and irreparably alters people’s lives forever.

AAPS News September 2022 – “Our Democracy”

Volume 78, no. 9  September 2022

When Speaker Pelosi and other politicians warn about threats to “our democracy,” they mean threats to their position of power.

Yes, we have elections, but for the Left, only the outcome matters, not a fair and honest process. In the Jan 6 so-called insurrection (tinyurl.com/5etr3rjz), protesters were not calling for overturning an election, but for delaying certification until states could investigate alleged irregularities. In our constitutional Republic it is the states’ responsibility to certify results.

For contrast, consider the real 2014 insurrection in Maidan, Ukraine, with 20 killed and hundreds wounded (tinyurl.com/mrxv45ry). This overturned a democratic election; deposed sitting President Viktor Yanukovych, who fled the country; and “restructured” the government, with advice from the U.S., including then-Vice President Joe Biden. This was one of many U.S.-supported “color revolutions” that resulted in a “regime change,” a.k.a. “putsch” or “coup d’etat” (tinyurl.com/yvba829t).

Before U.S. midterm elections can roll back some of the power the Left gained in 2020, a “pre-emptive coup” is being attempted, with air cover from the New York Times editorial board (https://tinyurl.com/2kt6ddm9). The message, writes Human Events  editor Jack Posobiec, is that “the only way to stop fascism and defend democracy is to indict President Donald J. Trump [for as yet undetermined crimes], to indict his supporters, to jail them, to criminalize them and to make them otherwise unacceptable in polite society” (https://tinyurl.com/ykmhaz5d).

No mens rea is needed. More than 850 Americans have already been charged with crimes for their roles in the “Capitol attack,” states the NYT. “Well-meaning intentions did not shield them from the consequences of their actions.”

The NYT provided cover for the Holocaust and the Holodomar—by not reporting, or outright denial. Without transparency, checks and balances, or NYT scrutiny, Franklin Roosevelt massively supported Stalin’s violent restructuring of Europe. Despite overwhelming American anti-war sentiment and forceful opposition in Congress, FDR funneled the equivalent of $1 trillion in resources to Stalin. This included 0.75 tons of uranium-235, 1,100 grams of deuterium, and 25,000 pounds of thorium (kept off the record at Harry Hopkins’s request), which helped kick-start the Soviet atomic bomb program (Sean McMeekin, Stalin’s War, discussed at https://tinyurl.com/3fcmhvhj).

Demonizing the Opposition

In a prime-time Sep 1 campaign speech in Philadelphia, President “unity and healing” Biden said that Trump supporters’  “extremism threatens the very foundations of our Republic” (https://tinyurl.com/y8ea2zks).

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stated that Biden’s labeling Republicans as “semi-fascists” was an “act of aggression…against his own people.” Gingrich also noted that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said that the FBI asked him to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story for the three or four weeks before the 2020 election (https://tinyurl.com/44f28kka).

According to the Washington Times, Biden framed the 2022  midterm elections as an eternal battle for “the soul of America.” He said “democracy cannot survive” under the belief system of  the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement (https://tinyurl.com/4h66yxaj). In this view, Americans who hold the same beliefs as our Founders are extremist and fascist.

Since fascists are portrayed as subhuman and pure evil, the accusation is an invitation to violence. Stalin was fighting fascists—and there was no Nuremberg trial for Soviet atrocities.

The staging for Biden’s speech—blood-red lighting, the flag on a red/black background, and Marines standing at attention behind the President—was described as “Riefenstahlesque” [for the film producer who played a seminal tole in producing Nazi propaganda such as Triumph of the Will]. It resembled the stage of dystopian British Nazi dictator Adam Sadler from V for Vendetta (https://tinyurl.com/2kt4bc8z). The raised-fist gesturing by the speaker appears Hitleresque. The speech occurred on the Sep 1 anniversary of the start of World War II. Neither timing, content, nor backdrop is likely to be accidental. Are our rulers accusing their opponents of what they themselves are doing?

Inverted Totalitarianism

The restructured U.S. government is a “managed democracy” under the control of corporate oligarchs—an administrative state (“Deep State”), which is by definition fascist, writes Robert Malone, M.D. The historic Jefferson vs. Hamilton question was whether capitalism is a tool of (representative constitutional) democracy or democracy is a tool of capitalism. Corporate interests are now capturing control by exerting financial power and influence over the political process. An alliance of transnational corporations (“the party of Davos”) is bringing an emerging system of inverted totalitarianism on a global scale (tinyurl.com/nhejzxhf). The Dept. of Health and Human Services is a leading branch of the administrative state (tinyurl.com/49kvzdn7).

To “protect Our Democracy,” opposition has to be wiped out. Quoting Washington Post “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin, Mark Steyn writes: “It’s not only that @realDonaldTrump has to lose, his enablers have to lose. We have to collectively burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them. Because if there are survivors….they will do it again” (tinyurl.com/22rvwaxc).


Flashback

“In 1943, the following directive was issued from Party headquarters to all Communists in the United States. It read: ‘When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them, after suitable buildups, as fascists or Nazi, or anti-Semitic, and use the prestige of antifascist and tolerance organizations to discredit them. In the public mind, constantly associate those who oppose us with those names which already have a bad smell. The association will after enough repetition become fact in the public mind’” (https://tinyurl.com/4xs9rved).


Illness and Death Spikes

Insurance Claims. Techniker Krankenkasse, the largest German medical insurance company, reports a total of 437,593 insurance claims billed under the four diagnostic codes for vaccine injury in 2021, compared with 13,777 in 2019 and 15,044 in 2020. This suggests that 4.3% of TK’s 11 million insured had a medical treatment for vaccine injury. This rate agrees closely with estimates based on reports to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and the EudraVigilance system, adjusted for under-reporting, writes Daniel Horowitz (https://tinyurl.com/4s3w7bkz).

U.S. Life Insurance Payouts. Annual statements filed by the five largest life insurers, obtained by the Informed Consent Action Network, showed that they paid out from 19% to 43% more death benefits in 2021 compared with 2017–2019 (https://tinyurl.com/mwdjszpk).

Cancers and Excess Deaths spiked in 2021 and 2022, writes Dr. Paul Alexander, after rollout of COVID-19 jabs and boosters (tinyurl.com/5cmjtusw). Unexplained mortality is noticeable in many countries, reports Tucker Carlson (tinyurl.com/2h4fds8p).

Early Post-vaccine Death. Based on a review of data from the UK Office for National Statistics, one in 482 persons receiving the COVID jab dies within one month. In every age group, the death rate in the vaccinated is significantly higher than in the  unvaccinated (The Exposé 8/13/22, tinyurl.com/yd75zaps). Caution: the analyst is unnamed; the publication is censored by Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Paypal.

Cardiac Effects. In a Thai study, nearly 30% of adolescents had cardiac effects ranging from tachycardia to myocarditis, after a COVID jab. Myopericarditis was confirmed in one of 301 patients and suspected in six (https://tinyurl.com/zsen3f9n).

Deaths in Athletes. Between January 2021 and August 2022, more than 1,200 cardiac arrests and serious issues were reported in athletes, with 849 dead, compared with previous incidence of sudden deaths in athletes under age 35 of around 29 per year (https://tinyurl.com/2h6p8pyk).

No U.S. Billing Codes for Vaccine Injuries? Such injuries are said to be untracked and not billable (tinyurl.com/z3dkxjrk).

Funeral Business Thriving. Prime Caskets reports a 20% increase in orders for typical caskets, and a 400% increase in orders for child-size. For the first time in 30 years, a family business is getting bulk orders for child caskets (ibid.)


“Misinformation is what ‘they’ want you to miss! Disinformation is truth ‘they’ dismiss!” —Michelle Malkin


What about the Dissident German Scientists?

A preliminary report by the German Working Group for COVID Vaccine Analysis (https://tinyurl.com/mr4xr48y), whose members choose to remain anonymous, is said to be “sending shockwaves reverberating around the world.” The group claims to have found “toxic substances” in all the COVID vaccine samples they analyzed. Beware of reliance on this report.

Batch testing of all vaccines by government and private labs independent of manufacturers is required in Europe and the UK, and they were certified to contain no significant impurities or contaminants. To check whether these labs are lying, the dissidents could have replicated their analytical methods, and added other published, validated methods—instead of relying on substandard, unvalidated, discredited, or misinterpreted tests. Apparently they overlooked a plethora of readily available forensic toxicology and pharmacology analytical protocols.

 Enthusiastic comments have appeared, but also harsh criticism, e.g., https://9gag.com/gag/aYr8eVw. One critic calls the report a “theatrical prop,” a “dilettante document produced by amateurs” that could mislead physicians lacking scientific training as well as the naïve public.

One ludicrous claim is to have “trained” artificial intelligence, using only 14 pictures. Absolutely missing from this report are the molecular genetic aspects of the “vaccines,” which are key.

Could it be a sophisticated attempt to poison the well?


The Psychology of Totalitarianism

In attempting to understand the abrupt pivot of nearly every country to follow China’s repressive example, and the remarkable transfer of power to “experts,” whom he compares to the pigs on Orwell’s Animal Farm, Mattias Desmet draws on his knowledge of statistics, psychology, and philosophy. Given the poor quality of academic research, “we can never take ‘science’ for granted.”

 He calls the COVID response “mass formation.” People become radically blind to everything that goes against the group belief; willing to radically sacrifice individual interest for the sake of the collective; and radically intolerant for dissonant voices.

COVID fits into a series of desperate crises to which the only response is increased control. Fear originates from the failure of the Grand Narrative of our society: the narrative of mechanistic science, in which man is reduced to a biological organism, which ignores the psychological, spiritual, and ethical dimensions of human beings. “Totalitarianism is a defining feature of the Enlightenment tradition,” he states.

The solution to our fear and uncertainty does not lie in the increase of (technological) control. It is essential to reclaim a timely human capacity—Truth Speech (tinyurl.com/bd3hu5h5).

Doctors Sue over Online Censorship

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford and biostatistician Martin Kulldorff, coauthors of the Great Barrington Declaration, among others, have joined a lawsuit challenging government-directed social media censorship (State of Missouri ex rel. Schmitt, et al. v. Joseph R. Biden, Jr., et al.) (tinyurl.com/ycwemrph).

“Public statements, emails, and recent publicly released documents establish that the president of the United States and other senior officials…violated the First Amendment by directing social media companies to censor viewpoints that conflict with the government’s messaging on COVID-19,” stated the New Civil Liberties Alliance (tinyurl.com/yc6j4wmm). “The government may not work through private entities to accomplish censorship that the First Amendment forbids the government from doing directly. Yet that is precisely what these federal defendants have been up to,” stated Mark Chenoweth, NCLA General Counsel.

Named agencies include the White House, HHS, DHS, CDC, NIAID, FBI, the Office of the Surgeon General, the Census Bureau, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (https://tinyurl.com/ye26tpf8). According to emails obtained by state attorneys general, Facebook and the Biden Administration arranged weekly or monthly calls to discuss what to censor on the platform (https://tinyurl.com/4vwrhtrx). Discovery documents have revealed more than 50 officials in the vast federal censorship army colluding in secret with private companies.

How are so many recruited to serve as “Fauci’s Red Guards”? Michael Senger describes the technique of forced preference falsification perfected in Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution.

When those who speak up in principled opposition to a policy are punished and forced into silence, others are also silenced or even forced to pretend to support the policy. Emboldened by this facade of unanimity, supporters become convinced that the policies are just and good, and that critics deserve  punishment.

The method can operate outside of fully totalitarian societies, and can cause any mass of people to support virtually any policy. Thus, free speech is critical (tinyurl.com/2tn5fpv2).


Minitrue Shut Down—after Our Lawsuit Filed

On Aug 24, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would be officially terminating its Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) and rescinding its charter. The Homeland Security Advisory Council stated that while DHS “must be able to address the disinformation threat streams that can undermine the security of our homeland,” a separate DGB is not needed (https://tinyurl.com/3v39x79z). The AAPS Educational Foundation lawsuit against the DGB as well as certain specialty boards was filed Jul 12 (tinyurl.com/y3arw78t).

Tip of the Month: The fastest growing American demographic is the Amish, whose population is doubling every 20 years. They now live in 32 states. They are entirely free market and reject all insurance and government programs. They dislike hospitals for restricting visits to loved ones during COVID-19. They welcome modern medicine and house calls, and can be driven to physicians’ offices. Some Amish communities are even setting up their own medical clinics. At their current rate of population growth, the Amish could be the majority in 200 years.


Moderna Sues Pfizer over Patent Infringement

Moderna has filed patent infringement lawsuits against Pfizer and BioNTech, alleging that the two companies copied Moderna’s patented mRNA technology and claiming that neither of the companies possessed the necessary know-how to have produced the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 vaccine on their own.

Moderna is not seeking damages for activities occurring before Mar 8, 2022, but is apparently concerned about asserting primacy in future development of mRNA technology, such as new groundbreaking vaccines (https://tinyurl.com/2e9zetmj).

A platform is 10 times more valuable than a blockbuster drug, stated attorney Erik Gordon (tinyurl.com/3ckbp2w2).

The rush to sue over a patent happens to coincide with a preprint by Qin et al. about how wonderfully effective a new mRNA-LNP formulation for the flu vaccine is in a mouse model (www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.03.16.484616v2). The author’s summary states: “Mice pre-exposed to mRNA-LNPs can pass down the acquired immune traits to their offspring.” Dr. Ah Kahn Syed concludes: “The RNA injected into the original mice was incorporated into the genome in the oocytes of the maternal line of mice.” Dr. Syed (“Arkmedic”) speculates on patent implications (https://tinyurl.com/5n6hbpzp) of the incorporation of synthetic genetic material into offspring. What about the companies’ claim that COVID products cannot affect your DNA?


Pfizer Sued under False Claims Act

Whistleblower Brook Jackson, who worked as regional director at one of the clinical trials used to develop the Pfizer vaccine, has filed suit alleging that Pfizer and two of its subcontractors violated the False Claims Act by providing bogus clinical trial results to garner the FDA approval of its COVID-19 vaccine. The payout could exceed $3 trillion.

“Respondents claim fraudulent certifications, false statements, doctored data, contaminated clinical trials, and firing of whistleblowers can be ignored based on the theory that they contracted their way around the fraud,” write Jackson’s lawyers. In their response to Pfizer’s motion to dismiss, they argue: “A drug company cannot induce the taxpayers to pay billions of dollars for a product that honest data would show poses more risks than benefits to most Americans and that ignores the actual contract and the law itself” (https://tinyurl.com/4njs53rz).


Biden Mandate Illegal, Tyrannical, AAPS Says

In an amicus brief on the challenge to the COVID vaccine mandate on federal workers, AAPS writes:

Elections may have consequences, but tyranny should never be one of them. Biden does not properly have dictatorial powers over anyone. He is restrained by the limited scope of federal power over anyone’s personal life, including that of federal workers. He is confined to what Congress has or has not authorized with respect to major questions such as a broad vaccine mandate against millions of people. Biden is further limited by fundamental principles of informed consent that are deeply ingrained in our American legal system.

“Misinformation.” As President Joe Biden said: “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Despite being vaccinated and boosted, Dr. Fauci got COVID. Double vaxxed and double boosted and treated with Paxlovid, Joe Biden got “rebound” COVID. Now, double vaxxed, double boosted and Paxlovid treated Jill Biden also has “rebound” Covid. Could it be that COVID shots increase the probability of getting re-infected with COVID or infected with another Covid variant?

The virus is clearly sending the “wrong message,” and is, therefore, spreading “misinformation.”

Lawrence R. Huntoon, M.D., Ph.D., Lake View, NY


Inevitable Viral Behavior. A coronavirus, which is a common cold virus, “comes around” once or twice a year to infect and reinfect people naturally. Every 10 years a particularly nasty variant emerges as SARS, METS, and recently COVID-19. This is the nature of the disease, quite like flu infections. The genetic and infection parameters will continue to drift, and individual health plays a major role in scope and outcomes.

The End of Limited Government. Asked to comment on the FBI’s raid of former president Trump’s home, Victor Davis Hanson writes: “We don’t have rule of law in Washington….  FBI is beyond redemption” (https://tinyurl.com/y8bxfzju).

When President Obama weaponized federal agencies and politicized the military, he created a true-believer leftist partisan administrative state. Federal government agencies of import are acting unconstitutionally against the populace. The FBI is the glaring example, but you can’t  name a department of the federal bureaucracy that respects the idea of a constitutional republic.  

John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Brownwood, TX


 Statistical Malpractice. I have been looking at vaccine safety studies since 2015. These studies contain no biology, no chemistry, and vanishingly little statistics. These people are doing arithmetic, badly. The CDC fails to use proper statistical tools (multivariate analysis and beyond) but relies upon crude bivariate analysis that is categorically rejected by all other fields of scholarly endeavor.  The vulgarity of vaccine safety studies is covered up by the PR machine for the most ruthless industry in the world (and a web of financial relationships that has become “too big to fail”). Why do scholars who could spot the errors in these studies in about 10 minutes fail to call the CDC out on their chicanery?

Toby Rogers, Ph.D., https://tinyurl.com/mdxz27d2


770,000 Reports. In a CDC contract going up for re-bid, the contractor would need to process 770,000 digital reports per year related to COVID-19 vaccines alone. For the past 30 years, the average number of adverse events reports to VAERS for all vaccines combined was 39,000 per year.

Jessica Rose, https://tinyurl.com/bmjpxt3d


No Informed Consent. Vaccine-injured people need to file official complaints, which may be the only way to hold vaccine administrators accountable. A father whose child got severe myocarditis recorded a phone call with the pharmacist, whom he asked why she didn’t tell his wife about this risk: “We might scare the parents, and they might not want to get their child vaccinated” (https://tinyurl.com/yc3a83kz).

Joseph Guarino, M.D., Reidsville, NC


Staff Shortages at NIH and CDC. Employees are quitting in droves, owing to low morale over inconsistent messaging and embarrassment over the bad science used to authorize vaccinating children under five to please the White House. High officials met me secretly on walks on the D.C. mall in fall 2020, telling me not to stop warning about vaccine dangers and lockdowns. They are silent out of fear for their careers and safety.

Paul E. Alexander, Ph.D., https://tinyurl.com/37v69bzd


Corrupting Medicine. Over the last 30 or 40 years, doctors and scientists have been silenced by the managerial methodology of contracts—that sign over everything you know to the people who hired you. The only way new doctors can get a job is to give up their intellectual freedom. Regulatory and operational capture of hospitals, health insurance, and physicians by government, big pharma, big tech, and hospitalists working in consort is almost  100% complete now.  We must resist and take back our power.

Robert Malone, M.D., https://tinyurl.com/nhejzxhf


What Is Democracy. As economist Michael Hudson points out, “when President Biden describes this great world conflict aimed at isolating China, Russia, India, Iran and their Eurasian trading partners, he characterizes this as an existential struggle between ‘democracy’ and ‘autocracy.’ By ‘democracy’ he means oligarchy. And by ‘autocracy’ he means any government strong enough to prevent a financial oligarchy from taking over government and society and imposing neoliberal rules—by force.” He sees the world economy as controlled by extractive, parasitic interests. Neoliberalism allows the inexorable growth of debt, concentrating wealth in the One Percent, and reducing the citizenry to bondage.

AAPS Foundation Sues Medical Dictators – AAPS News August 2022
Share:

Volume 78, no. 8

The AAPS Educational Foundation has filed suit against the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG), the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), and Alejandro Mayorkas, in his official capacity as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The lawsuit concerns defendants’ “unprecedented campaigns to censor speech that they falsely disparage as ‘misinformation’ or ‘disinformation’” (tinyurl.com/y3arw78t).

“Defendants wrongly misuse their authority in a politically partisan manner to chill speech….  Defendants have acted in an apparently coordinated manner, using similar timing and terminology, to censor those who exercise their First Amendment rights on issues of public concern,” the complaint states.

It notes that the Board Defendants have certification monopolies. “Although only official state medical boards have the proper authority to regulate the practice of medicine, certifications by the Board Defendants constitute a de facto essential credential for practicing in most hospitals or participating in most networks.” Threats to revoke certification improperly chill speech, and Defendants, unlike licensure boards, have no political accountability.

ABIM and ABFM have already sent letters to physicians threatening them with revocation of their earned board certifications based on their statements on issues of public concern. Board Defendants are apparently retaliating against physicians who were praised by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in his bestselling book The Real Anthony Fauci, in some cases expressly because of criticizing Dr. Fauci, who as a government official may be freely criticized.

ABOG has publicly warned physicians against making public statements against abortion and contraception. ABOG stridently supports universal access to abortion, with taxpayer funding, and ABOG sharply criticized the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs.

ABOG also threatens physicians for warning pregnant women against receiving the COVID vaccine, even though the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a similar warning in 2021.

The Board Defendants’ threatening letters and the creation of the Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board (“DGB”) by DHS Secretary Mayorkas closely followed on the directive by President Joe Biden, which states: “I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets: Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows.”

Attorneys general from 20 states, led by Virginia and joined by Texas,  released a letter to Defendant Mayorkas, dated May 5, 2022, which protested the unconstitutionality of the DGB.  The letter repeated what Justice Brandeis explained in 1927 in Whitney v. California that the remedy for error is “more speech, not enforced silence.”

“The mere existence of DGB has the effect of chilling speech by Plaintiff,” the complaint argues. Public remarks by Dr. Fauci appear “to call implicitly for censorship of speech based on content that one political party disfavors.”

The complaint notes that the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), tasked to “most effectively and appropriately address disinformation that poses a threat to the homeland, while protecting free speech and other fundamental rights,” is subject to the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), but is violating them with respect to the DGB.

Plaintiff asks that Defendant Boards be prohibited from retaliating against physicians for speaking out on matters of public concern and that Defendant Mayorkas be required to comply fully with FACA or to abolish DGB altogether.

Information on Harm

Threatened physicians are the ones who are countering the official disinformation narrative and telling the public about the harm of denying early treatment, of lockdowns, and of COVID-19 vaccine adverse effects.

Board threats are in themselves harmful. As dozens of physicians write in an open letter to the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the Federation of State Medical Boards  (FSMB), “actions against the leading medical doctors, that have pioneered the development and deployment of treatment protocols against COVID-19, and who are now making similar efforts towards the treatment of patients that have been injured by the COVID-19 vaccines, threatens the right to life and the well-being of the American public” (https://tinyurl.com/ynpvkcc8). 

Most of the “public health” narratives about COVID-19 have been false—i.e., misinformation, argues former Pfizer vice-president Dr. Michael Yeadon (https://tinyurl.com/mfjeu983).

Adverse events do follow COVID-19 injections: more than 1.3 million have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), including nearly 30,000 deaths, as of July 1 (tinyurl.com/2xtfe8wx), but certified physicians dare not mention them because that might promote “vaccine hesitancy.” For the newly described Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), the proposed explanations include: sleeping position, drinking tea, eating eggs, cold weather, solar storms, climate change, and too much or too little exercise (tinyurl.com/yc6uyudh).

Upon hearing of ABIM’s threat to remove Dr. Peter McCullough’s certification, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) offered to have an open expert panel on the scientific issues. ABIM declined. “What constitutes ‘misinformation’ shall be exclusively determined by a board of doctors THEY appoint” (tinyurl.com/msunp6yj).


Prescience or Planning?

James Gruhl, Ph.D., summarizes the series of globalist-run pandemic simulations described in Robert F. Kennedy’s book The Real Doctor Fauci. The series started with Topoff 2000. Dark Winter 2001 added vaccines, the CDC, the U.S. Air Force, Big Pharma, and the CIA. Project Bioshield 2004 added the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense, the FDA, and ATF. Atlantic Storm added WHO. Global Mercury coordinated all Western nations and added the Department of State. SLC Simulation 2005 added the Rockefeller Foundation and massive Orwellian surveillance. MARS 2017 added the World Bank and  the Koch Institute and planned how to blame busy wet markets in Wuhan. SPARS 2017 was run by Bill Gates and planned strategies for squashing therapeutics and keeping up interest in the vaccine through social media death counts. CLADE X 2018 included a healthcare collapse, stock market crash, FDA/CIA/CDC, total military control, and a vaccine in which Gates and Fauci had already invested enormous resources. Crimson Contagion 2019 specifically avoided off-label therapeutic possibilities. Event 201 practiced removal/canceling of vaccine critics from all social media platforms and coordinated all parts of government, media, corporations, foundations, and academies. This is a partial list (https://tinyurl.com/49baxd9k).

All aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including a shortage of masks and number of deaths, were predicted.


Unnatural Origin? 

 A 2015 book, The Unnatural Origins of SARS and Man-Made Genetic Weapons of New Human Viruses, edited by Dezhong Xu and Feng Li, published by the Military Medical Science Press (Beijing), provides extensive historical and scientific background regarding the SARS-CoV-1 virus.

According to the translators’ 2021 foreword,  “This book serves as a framework and protocol to guide the PLA [People’s Liberation Army] to create SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19, which is a ‘contemporary genetic bioweapon.’” They also state that another purpose is to “cover up its earlier publication in Nature back in 2013 revealing the true origin of SARS-CoV and…to shift the blame to other countries, like the United States.” 

The translators ask, but do not answer, whether the COVID vaccine is also a genetic weapon (ibid.).

GAO Reports Political Interference on COVID

A 37-page report by the U.S. General Accounting Office  warned that American federal agencies that have managed the pandemic public policy response (including vaccine and drug development) have no mechanism to stop political interference in scientific decision-making and no mechanisms for receiving whistleblower reports. These agencies include the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR).  A GAO investigation, involving semi-structured interviews and a confidential hotline, found many instances of such interference.  Employees said they did not report because they feared retaliation, were unsure about how to report issues, or believed agency leaders were already aware (https://tinyurl.com/2d46emjn).


COVID: Crisis of the Administrative State

The administrative overreach, dishonesty, mismanagement, and ethical breaches throughout the crisis result from a perverted bureaucratic system of governance, which is completely insulated from functional oversight by elected officials, writes Dr. Robert Malone. “The arc of the history of the COVID crisis encompasses collusive planning between a wide range of corporate interests, globalists, and the administrative state (Event 201); subsequent efforts to cover up administrative state culpability in creating the crisis; followed by gross mismanagement of public health policies, decision making, and communication all acting in lockstep with the preceding planning sessions” [see above].

Within the agencies, he explains, “In a Machiavellian sense, these senior administrators function as The Prince, each federal health institute functions as a semi-autonomous city-state, and the administrators and their respective courtiers act accordingly.  To complete this analogy, congress functions [like] the Vatican during the 16th century, with each Prince vying for funding and power by currying favor with influential archbishops.”

Dr. Malone examines the legal underpinnings and the history of these developments. Since the 2001 anthrax spore incidents, “HHS has increasingly been horizontally integrated with the intelligence community as well as with the Department of Homeland Security to form a health security state with enormous ability to shape and enforce ‘consensus’ through widespread propaganda, censorship, ‘nudge’ technology and intentional manipulation of the ‘Mass Formation’ hypnosis.”

Dr. Malone warns of “inverted totalitarianism” and the fusion of mega-corporations with the administrative “deep state,” of which HHS is the leading branch (tinyurl.com/4wasm2u9).

Not just our profession, but the American system of government is at stake.

FDA Crusade against Ivermectin Illegal

The Food and Drug Administration’s relentless effort to cause doctors to shun ivermectin appeared to be a misinformation campaign instituted at the top of the agency. Dr. Ben Carson and attorney C. Boyden Gray write that this violated “both fundamental ethics and the law.” Congress was explicit in its intentions in the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act that the FDA was not to “interfere in the practice of medicine, which includes prescribing drugs off-label.” The FDA also pressured umbrella boards and licensing organizations to, in turn, pressure their members on a state-by-state basis to avoid the drug.

The agency displayed “insatiable arrogance,” refusing “to be satisfied with its authority over market entry and labeling, and instead tried to commandeer the role of doctors in treating their patients as well” (https://tinyurl.com/4rj6tnjn).


FDA Empowers Pharmacists, Bans Doctors

“In 2021, we witnessed one of the most remarkable dynamics unfold in the history of American medicine,” writes Daniel Horowitz. “An order came down through the corporate pharmacy cartel to start illegally practicing medicine by denying prescriptions written by doctors to treat COVID patients…. It wasn’t just ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, but doctors had prescriptions for antibiotics, steroids, and nebulizer treatments denied because ‘there are no treatments for COVID’” (tinyurl.com/yrhysks5).

Then, in July 2022, the FDA approved any pharmacist to “prescribe” Pfizer’s Paxlovid on the spot without a prescription! 

AMA president, Jack Resneck, Jr., M.D., writes: “Paxlovid is an important treatment and critical tool in the fight against COVID-19.” But, “whenever possible, prescribing decisions should be made by a physician” (https://tinyurl.com/ymyh2dvj).

Horowitz notes that there are no long-term safety studies on Paxlovid, and it contains an AIDS drug, ritonavir, which has an FDA black-box warning for potential death when prescribed with several fairly common drugs that seniors might be taking. 

He concludes that “if a certain product becomes part of the ‘spirit of the age,’ all laws, prudence, science, and medical norms are thrown out the window in order to promote the new idol.” Pharmacists admitted to him that they gave shots to patients in age cohorts not yet authorized. However, if a product might challenge the idol of the age, then no law or social, scientific, or medical norm will stop them from banning the drug.


Doctors Sue Twitter over Censorship

Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, and Dr. Bryan Tyson have filed a lawsuit against Twitter, alleging that the social media giant silenced them for posting truthful information about COVID-19. While admitting that as a private company Twitter is not bound by the First Amendment, it is bound to follow its own policies. Truthful tweets do not violate those policies (https://tinyurl.com/ywrch2sk). A letter from the doctors’ attorney states: “Twitter received express and implied threats from government officials to censor certain viewpoints and speakers, lest Twitter face the amendment or revocation of Section 230, or antitrust enforcement. This was a financial decision for Twitter” (https://tinyurl.com/2jhbzb82).

Tip of the Month: If you receive a letter from a specialty board threatening to discipline your board certification, which many who have publicly criticized the Covid vaccine have received, then compel the specialty board to follow its own procedures. It should provide you with all of the documentation that it has to show that any statements against the vaccine were false. So far specialty boards have failed to provide such documentation, even though their procedures require it. Contact AAPS for our templates of responses. Consider citing statements against Anthony Fauci by Sen. Rand Paul, M.D. All physicians have a First Amendment right to speak about matters of public policy, including criticizing government officials, and we are defending against this unfair retaliation by specialty boards.


Court Rules: Canadians Can’t Have Private Care

British Columbia’s highest court has dismissed Dr. Brian Day’s appeal of the decision that denied the right of Canadians to pay for private care when waits for public care became too long (AAPS News, August 2021). The B.C. Court of Appeal ruled that the long waiting times in the public system did violate the patient plaintiffs’ fundamental rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms: “The risk of death has increased for an unknown number of individuals suffering from life‑threatening conditions who wait beyond the benchmark for certain procedures and who, but for the impugned provisions, would otherwise have been able to access private care and mitigate the wait.” But the breach of their rights is justified to protect those who can’t afford private care, the justices found.

Dr. Day opened the Cambie Surgery Center in 1996, and the legal saga began in 2009. He is expected to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada (https://tinyurl.com/29h4e839).


COVID-19 Rulings

Punishment of USAF Members Blocked. U.S. District Court Judge Matthew McFarland issued  a temporary restraining order preventing the Biden administration from taking any action for at least 14 days against any Air Force member who submitted a verified request for religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine since September 2021. The ruling also grants “class status” to all the 12,000 airmen whose requests for religious exemption were denied or not yet acted upon. Only 104 applications have been approved (https://tinyurl.com/485dwkbt). 

New York Quarantine Rules Unconstitutional. Acting Justice of the Supreme Court of Cattaraugus County (N.Y.) Ronald D. Ploetz struck down the COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine procedures, known as Rule 2.13, enacted by the Hochul administration with no debate or authorization from the legislature.  Persons could be involuntarily detained at home, or in residential or temporary housing, subject to what the public health authority determined to be “appropriate” conditions.

Judge Ploetz stated that the rule merely gives “lip service” to constitutional due process: “Involuntary detention is a severe deprivation of individual liberty…. [It] may have far-reaching consequences such as loss of income (or employment) and isolation from family.” He added that there was “no scientific data or expert testimony” to back up the rule (tinyurl.com/49uamhty).

The Hochul administration has appealed the ruling.

“Flipping” Healthcare. Like people who “flip” houses to make a big profit, some of private equity firms “flip” entities that control the practice of medicine for profit. According to NBC News, more than 40% of the country’s hospital emergency departments—the biggest net generator and a  huge profit center for most hospitals—are overseen by for-profit care staffing companies owned by private equity firms (tinyurl.com/4e9akwnd). These companies decide how many patients a doctor must see, can direct some of the testing protocols, and can determine what kind of “provider” will see a patient. To circumvent laws in 33 states that require medical care to be provided by entities owned by licensed practitioners, the firms simply pay a physician to put his name on ownership documents. If a physician dares to complain that patients are being harmed, he is summarily fired and told: “There is a responsibility as the corporate representative to support the corporation’s objectives.”

Canadian Doctors Are Sorry, but…. they do not know what to do as they will be cancelled and fired, and lose income and their careers. Many met with me and said they feared for their safety. They “had to go along.” Many doctors in Ontario use early treatment themselves or for their families and have fake vaccine cards—perhaps at least two on the College of Physicians and Surgeons Ontario board, who took medical doctors’ licenses away for using early treatment and giving medical exemptions.

Vaccine Skepticism Grows. Through the course of my career, I never questioned vaccines. I assumed they were safe and effective; it wasn’t my area of research. When I was asked to support a vaccine, like the 13-valent pneumococcal vaccine in adult medicine, I did so. But with what has happened with COVID, I have begun to question other vaccines. I found that the efficacy for that pneumococcal vaccine for protection against hospitalization and death is 9%! Standard acceptance criteria would be at least 50% vaccine efficacy, and it should last at least a year. Even the generally uncontroversial pneumococcal and influenza vaccine are nowhere close to being acceptable. I’m dropping them (https://tinyurl.com/4367tfrv).

Accessories by Silence. How many lives were lost because of bureaucratic medical and health system malfeasance? James Stansbury’s compelling analysis (tinyurl.com/4wz874fk) mirrors the points made by Dr. Peter McCullough.

Despite poverty, an ethical medical profession serves patients better than an affluent but corrupt system that censors and harasses dissenters. At what point does the system’s conduct become criminal?

All Your Data. The Left’s latest strategy to bring Marxism into medicine is via Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). I learned from congressional staff that SDOH, which is advanced by the  American Recovery Act, is “popping up everywhere” in legislation.

Harmful Use of Data. The CIA has a secret bulk data collection program, authorized under Executive Order 12333, without any of the oversight that comes with Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) data collection, write Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.). The COVID crisis has been used to usher in new surveillance measures, as well as new definitions as to what is a domestic terrorist (such as being critical of the public health response). And data—such as was collected when I obtained a security clearance—has leaked and could be used by state-sponsored media, hackers, and foreign governments for nefarious purposes (tinyurl.com/2p893h5x).

Access to Energy Saved—for Now. On Dec 31, 2021, the UN Security Council moved to vote on a climate-change resolution that would have significantly expanded the criteria for UN intervention in armed conflicts. It is claimed that 100 countries support it. Members who failed to take “drastic” measures recommended by “experts” to “green” their economies immediately would have been considered aggressors against global governance. Russia vetoed the measure. India and China abstained. These three countries, with one-fifth of the world’s land surface and almost half its population saved hydrocarbon fuels. I am not sure who or what is going to save a weakened America from its Marxist regime in control in Washington, D.C.

AAPS News July 2022: Am I Anti-Vax? Change My Mind

Share:

Volume 78, no. 7  July 2022

These days being called an “anti-vaxxer” is likely an indelible stain, which implies that one is anti-science and pro-disease. Anyone who voices a concern about any vaccine is likely to be tarred with this label. Almost everyone who writes about vaccine adverse effects prefaces the remarks with “I am not an anti-vaxxer. I’ve had all my vaccines, and so have my children, and my patients, and I firmly believe the creed that vaccines are the greatest medical advance in history, that they have saved millions of lives, and that without them we’d have vast epidemics of horrible diseases.”

This profession of faith may be as effective as proclaiming that “I am not a ***ist or ***phobe—I have friends who are black, ‘Latinx,’ gay, trans, or Jewish.” But change could happen.

COVID-19 vaccines have made a hole in the dike.

“The Gish Gallop of the panicked pro-vaxxers,” as described by one physician, has appeared (NY Times Mag 5/25/2022). (The Gish Gallop is a debate technique of overwhelming an opponent with an excessive number of weak arguments and half truths.)

“A wave of parents has been radicalized by Covid-era misinformation to reject ordinary childhood immunizations—with potentially lethal consequences.” Quoting Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, the article states that the anti-vaccine movement is “so strong, so well organized, so well funded, I doubt it will stop at Covid-19 vaccines…. I think it’s going to extend to childhood vaccinations.” A few parents are declining baby shots, and the number of fully vaccinated kindergartners has dropped from 95% to 94% over a year (https://tinyurl.com/mamkk3nf).

Pro-vaxxers blame “grifters” who manage to raise some money, conspiracy theorists, “right-wing” political leanings, and the strategy of emphasizing personal freedom. They ask “how much autonomy any individual should surrender for the greater good and how to apportion risk between individuals and society” (ibid.). There are apparently no inalienable rights.

Vaccines—Greatest Advance and Only Answer?

Sir William Osler wrote that the greatest medical advances were cinchona (source of quinine, of which hydroxychloroquine is a derivative), vaccination, and the principle of  asepsis (surely he would not under-rate sanitation). Very few vaccines (e.g., (smallpox, tetanus, and rabies) had been developed in Osler’s time.

Smallpox is the only disease that vaccination is claimed to have eradicated—and it took 100 years. The original attempt, variolation, was based on the idea of causing a mild case so that the patient would be resistant when encountering a larger inoculum. This was dangerous—if even one organism evaded the immune system, a full-blown case might result. Next, patients were inoculated with a related but less dangerous disease, cowpox, which was observed anecdotally to be protective. Now, live virus vaccines use an attenuated strain made by passage through tissue culture. Since the immune response is generally not strong enough, an adjuvant is added, usually an aluminum compound. Thimerosal, a mercury-containing organic compound once used as a vaccine preservative, has adjuvant as well as disinfecting properties. Adjuvants have a nonspecific stimulating effect on the immune system—which is not well studied and could provoke allergies or autoimmunity.

So what is in vaccines? Never mind “accidental contaminants” like trace amounts of industrial chemicals or peculiar micro-debris. Vaccines are prepared in living cells, which contain a huge number of viruses, including retroviruses. We learned about SV-40 in polio vaccine—after millions got it, but what about others? As to mRNA, exactly what does it code for? And what if they change the formulation? It is impossible to determine.

Even if the initial purpose is laudable and some vaccines achieve that purpose, vaccination is a potential cover for injecting who-knows-what into non-consenting people, directed by powerful institutions that are known to be corrupted, tyrannical, and arrogantly incompetent. The escalation from “individual choice of medical procedure” into mandatory violation of bodily autonomy is built into the mass vaccination concept. Potential sinister motives range from undeserved profits to population control.

For those reasons, vaccine skeptics who are free to act might consider saying, “Yes, I am openly anti-vax; how can anyone be pro-vax after COVID vaccine tyranny? It is too prone to abuse.”

Questions to ask: Do ethical physicians and scientists oppose human sacrifice? (And does that include imposing a risk on one person to protect another?) How about experiments without adequate control groups (such as the use of “placebos” that contain adjuvants)? Lack of rigorous after-market surveillance for long-term effects such as infertility, cancer, chronic disease, developmental disability, and birth defects? Shielding malefactors from liability? Suppressing alternate modalities? Calling dissent “misinformation” and “canceling” dissenters? Depriving people of liberty or property without due process of law?

Anti-vaxxers need to challenge pro-vaxxers to change my mind. Are the above effects acceptable? Have they not occurred or can they not result from mass vaccination?

One public commenter to the NYT article writes: “The COVID situation allowed regular people to realize that that the governments and mainstream news outlets have lied to them, repeatedly and relentlessly. The radical skepticism of the establishment was an inevitable consequence of these sorts of deceptions, and is fully warranted.”


What Vanquished Infectious Disease?

To credit vaccines or antibiotics for the precipitous decline in infectious disease mortality is even worse than assuming that correlation proves causality or falling into the Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc fallacy. Mortality was already in steep decline—in measles, diphtheria, and pertussis before vaccines (tinyurl.com/2s36y3vk), and in tuberculosis, typhoid, scarlet fever, and pneumonia before antibiotics. This was not because of the miracles of modern medicine, but thanks to first-generation public health measures including slum reforms, food and factory inspections, and most importantly, sanitary engineering to safely remove and treat human waste and provide clean water. We are indebted to plumbers, not doctors, for these wonderful results.

Aggressive vaccination programs have failed to eradicate measles. What works better? Toilets (tinyurl.com/5vs6aj98).

This seems counterintuitive for a respiratory disease, but the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), or “Clean India Campaign,” which had the lofty goal of eliminating open defecation, found that for every 1% increase in households in a district with toilets, there are 0.33 fewer measles cases per 1,000 children under age 5. In a few short years, it appears that getting toilets into homes has reduced the burden of measles more than jabbing 80% of Indian children with two doses of measles vaccine in the first two years of life.

Authors of a report in BMJ Open (tinyurl.com/mu2kr2ex) calculated that about 12% of the decline in measles cases is due to a drop in growth stunting caused by environmental enteropathy, which impairs immune function. Availability of toilets may also have enhanced the impact of vitamin A supplementation, which reduces the risk of death from measles by 87% for children under two years of age.

Eradicating measles does not necessarily confer a net health benefit. Getting childhood measles is associated with a lower risk  of dying of cancer at ages 15–60 years, acquiring lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia, developing Parkinson disease, or having allergic disease or asthma, among other possible benefits.

In terms of lives saved, vaccines cannot come close to the record of vector control. DDT is estimated to have saved 500 million lives from malaria alone (tinyurl.com/yckjmdhr).

The U.S. is conducting an uncontrolled experiment in bringing back open defecation in homeless camps, and hampering vector control through rigid environmental regulations.

Prenatal Tests: Chinese Gene Harvesting 

One of the most popular prenatal tests in the world, called NIFTY for Non-Invasive Fetal TrisomY, is the source of genetic and population data for BGI, a company that works in cooperation with the Chinese military. With the aid of artificial intelligence, data from millions of women could be used not only to diagnose genetic diseases but to try to “improve population quality.” Large data sets could expose genetic vulnerabilities to disease in a population, which an adversary could exploit in a targeted genetic attack. Some women prefer to use a different test when they learn about the secondary research done with their DNA—and their child’s (https://tinyurl.com/3j4yytcx).


“The object of persecution is persecution…. The object of power is power.” George Orwell, 1984


Data Related to Viral Origin Suppressed

Questions about the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are unanswered, but the National Institutes of Health restricted public access to genetic sequencing data from the Wuhan Institute of Virology at the lab’s request. The documents, obtained  by Empower Oversight Whistleblowers and Researchers (EO) through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, seem to suggest that the epidemic did not originate in the Huanan market and thus to reinforce claims of some experts that the virus likely escaped from the WIV. The EO report claims that NIH staff members were using off-the-record emails to influence media coverage. Dr. Anthony Fauci and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins were prominently mentioned (tinyurl.com/3nhec3tu).


Immunofudging on Shots for Kids

In FDA advisory committee hearings on authorizing COVID shots for children under age 5, Pfizer and Moderna used the  “immunobridging” statistical trick to compensate for lack of actual health benefits, writes Toby Rogers, Ph.D. They compared antibody levels in 300 kids (10% of the trial subjects) in each age group against antibody levels in 300 adults ages 18–25 from a previous clinical trial. Antibody levels being similar, Moderna claims, “Therefore it will prevent disease in the future in kids!”

Additional ways of rigging the game included releasing risk benefit documents (190 pages, single-spaced) one to two days before the meeting. “Endless layers of complexity [were added] to hide how bad the data really is.” One “expert” after another acknowledged that there are no “correlates of protection” for these vaccines: “You cannot use antibodies (or B-cells, T-cells, or any other proxy) to predict whether someone is immune or not.”

Eric Rubin, a committee member and the editor of the NEJM stated it bluntly, “We know what kind of antibody response can be generated, we just don’t know if it works.” 

Since data were collected in mid-2021, the Omicron variant has replaced the earlier strains, and neither Moderna nor Pfizer shots are effective against the current variant. 

By fall of 2021, 26 high-quality studies from outside the U.S.  showed a two- to seven-fold increased risk of myocarditis from mRNA shots. FDA, CDC, and Kaiser-Permanente fixers massaged it down to 7% to 50% higher.

“The public health establishment has abandoned science, logic, reason, rationality, empathy, health, and medicine. The FDA is more than happy to sacrifice children in order to ingratiate themselves further with the cartel,” Rogers concludes (https://tinyurl.com/2jrvxc9t).

ACTION OF THE MONTH

The AAPS Educational Foundation offers scholarships to medical students and residents to attend our annual meeting. Have interested persons contact us at aaps@aapsonline.org.


Medical Board Ordered to Void NPDB Entry

In a stunning 8-to-1 decision (tinyurl.com/5evhzna3), the Texas Supreme Court held that the Texas Medical Board must issue a Void Report to the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB), which it had refused to do although Robert Van Boven, M.D., D.D.S., had been exonerated on all accusations (AAPS News, September 2021). Dr. Van Boven has been fighting false accusations for nearly a decade.

“This decision by the Texas Supreme Court establishes a cause of action for physicians to obtain justice for outdated and inaccurate reports about accusations that were never proven,” stated AAPS general counsel Andrew Schlafly.


Doctors Sue over Ivermectin Prohibition

Dr. Robert L. Apter, Dr. Mary Talley Bowden, and Dr. Paul E. Marik, represented by Boyden Gray, have sued the Dept. of HHS and the Food and Drug Administration over the FDA’s unlawful attempts to prohibit the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division (Case 3:22-cv-00184).

Dr. Bowden stated: “I provided treatment when other doctors told my patients to stay home. I have kept over 3,900 patients out of the hospital, but it hasn’t been easy. Sadly, fighting the system has been a much bigger challenge than fighting the disease.”

The FDA’s efforts to prevent use of ivermectin “ignore both statutory limits on the FDA’s authority and the significant body of scientific evidence from peer-reviewed research, over 80 medical trials, and results from ivermectin’s use in medical settings worldwide, showing the safe and effective use of the drug in fighting COVID-19,” said Dr. Marik (https://tinyurl.com/4kdxvkvz).

Attempts by the FDA to influence or intervene in the patient-physician relationship amount to interference with the practice of medicine, and breach the critical boundary between federal and state authority, the Complaint argues. As Dr. Apter notes, FDA statements, even if FDA cannot legally enforce them, affect the practice of medicine, which is now highly driven by standards and guidelines (https://tinyurl.com/yd8rp6wf).


Nurse Sentenced for Medical Error

Nurse RaDonda Vaught of Tennessee was sentenced to three years’ probation after being convicted of criminally negligent homicide and impaired adult abuse. The charges stemmed from the death of a 75-year-old patient when the nurse inadvertently administered vercuronium instead of Versed, having overridden several alerts. (Nurses typically have to override alerts in the electronic medical record to get anything done.) No mens rea needed to be demonstrated. Vaught could have been sentenced to years in prison. The prospect of error in a dangerous, high-pressure environment being criminalized is causing many nurses to consider a career change (https://tinyurl.com/538ssbdu).

While Nurse Vaught reported her error immediately, though too late for the patient, Vanderbilt University Medical Center failed to notify the medical examiner or CMS as required. Serious system problems were found only when an anonymous tip prompted an unannounced federal inspection a year later (https://tinyurl.com/rdfdepur).


Vaccine Injury Claims

More than 10,000 Australians were planning to file claims for COVID-10 vaccine injuries under the government’s no-fault indemnity scheme last November (tinyurl.com/c3ys6jej), but so far only 861 have done so, and only one has been paid. The scheme covers only clinical conditions that are diagnosed by a treating doctor and are included in the product information document. Patients reported that “there was often resistance from doctors to link their symptoms to the vaccine” (tinyurl.com/53vn3aey).

In the UK, a single tax-free payment of €120,000 is said to be available to persons suffering from a vaccine injury (https://tinyurl.com/6zpwwc8t). As of Feb 27, 920 compensation applications linked with COVID-19 vaccination injury had already been filed, compared with a usual 100 per year, but no payments have been made yet. (https://tinyurl.com/5n8axxnk).


Missouri Protects Right to Prescribe

Despite the fact that it is perfectly lawful to prescribe FDA-approved drugs off-label, many patients have been unable to obtain hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin for COVID-19 because physicians and pharmacists are intimidated by threats to their licensure. The Missouri legislature passed, nearly unanimously, a law protecting the right to prescribe and dispense these drugs (https://tinyurl.com/4wfvt64e).

Tip of the Month: Hospital mergers result in a loss in price transparency. Decreased competition makes it more difficult for patients to find out what services will cost. Despite hospitals’ complaints about reduced business due to COVID-19, in an increasing percentage (now 16%) of mergers the acquired hospital had billion-dollar revenues. Fortunately, some independent hospitals are refusing to be acquired by a big hospital chain, so the number of mergers decreased despite their increased size. Patients and physicians are better off with more independent hospitals.


Hospital Monopolies Sued

Three giant hospital systems are being challenged for anti-competitive behavior: HCA Healthcare, Hartford Healthcare Corp., and Advocate Aurora Health. Fairmark Partners LLP is bringing the lawsuits, supported by funding from Arnold Ventures, a philanthropic organization founded by the ex-energy trader John Arnold and his wife Laura.

“I don’t think there’s really any enforcement failure that’s had a larger negative economic impact for consumers than the failure to enforce antitrust laws against hospitals,” said Fairmark’s Brennan Bilberry. “Supporting employers and workers suing hospitals for price gouging and anticompetitive contracting is one way to overcome the imbalance of power in the market,” said Erica Socker, vice president of health care for Arnold Ventures.

Since 2010, there have been 979 deals among hospitals, and by 2016, 90% of the nation’s metropolitan hospital markets were highly concentrated. Formerly locally owned community institutions are now part of vast networks.

Arnold has also announced that his philanthropy “will break the insulin oligopoly by bringing $30 insulin to market” (Wall St J 6/11/22, https://tinyurl.com/3bjjrhxp).


Correspondence

FDA: Ministry of Bias and Illogic. Yet another generic drug to treat early COVID is rejected by the FDA—fluvoxamine. One large randomized controlled trial in Brazil found that those who stuck to the treatment regimen were 66% less likely to be hospitalized and 91% less likely to die. Other drugs the FDA has approved for emergency use authorization (EUA) haven’t done as well. The author of a WSJ editorial writes that there is no evidence that regulators are trying to protect drugmaker profits by limiting access to repurposed generics, but her own op-ed reviews the evidence for this (https://tinyurl.com/wzneaae3).

Pfizer Trials Stopped Early. When I was an employee in the Trump HHS in August 2020, I wrote a letter to the FDA regarding my concerns that Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins were saying they would stop the COVID-19 vaccine trials early and not collect the safety data. I stated the need for at least 500 events to occur if a vaccine trial was to be stopped for benefit. I said that stopping at an event number of 150 or so was devastating and bogus and will be an over-estimation of vaccine effect, and that safety surveillance long term was critical. I sent  this paper to high-level people in government and was told that I had to find a way to withdraw it from circulation. I did not do so, and resigned under threat of being fired (tinyurl.com/ms2ypum8). [Pfizer based its analysis on 170 cases, 162 in the placebo group; there were only 10 severe cases, nine in the placebo group (https://tinyurl.com/2p8v7hw4).]

Public-Private Censorship Partners. Information released by Sen. Grassley’s office regarding a whistleblower document  suggests that the Department of Homeland Security has been  planning to “operationalize” its relationships with private social media companies to implement its public policy goals.  These are not restricted to foreign disinformation but include “conspiracy theories about the validity and security of elections” and “disinformation related to the origins and effects of COVID-19 vaccines or the efficacy of masks.” The Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) was to be much more than a simple “working group” to develop guidelines and standards, but rather was designed to be the Department’s central hub, clearinghouse, and gatekeeper for Administration policy and response to whatever it happened to decide constituted “disinformation”  (https://tinyurl.com/55rrzfa5).

Loss of Trust. No one believes public health agencies any longer. That public health has acted for a century as if it were entitled by a “noble lie” to its methods for manipulating the public is now shown to be only a lie.  There is nothing noble about pandering to special interests over population health.

Evidence for benefit of early treatment need not be strong. What matters is strong evidence for safety. There is no evidence of harm from hydroxychloroquine used in COVID outpatients, and 65 years of prior safe use. Yet there is a summary relative risk of a five-fold mortality reduction with HCQ in a dozen or more studies of 40,000 subjects. If that isn’t a “striking effect,” then nothing is. But no evidence will be good enough for the scoffers.

Harvey Risch, M.D., Ph.D., New Haven, CT


A Tool for Intellectual Tyranny. In Plato’s Dialogues, Socrates explains how the “Noble Lie” is useful for achieving political harmony. It has been a constant feature of politics and is the foundation of the administrative state, a way to control the populace with the presumption that the elite knows what is best. The motive for the thought police and groupthink mendacity is the thirst for power and control (tinyurl.com/mu6u47b2).

No Thinking Allowed. When the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines engage in war planning, they have a blue team that presents a proposal, and then a red team that tries to tear that proposal apart and search for any weaknesses. The U.S. Public Health Service is officially part of the military, but eschews military best practices and instead requires groupthink and censors unfavorable data. So, we get all of the worst aspects of military hierarchy, but none of the responsibility and commitment to excellence. Event 201 and pandemic preparedness exercises conducted by Johns Hopkins University, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, CIA, etc., did not include a red team to identify deficiencies in their carefully prepared scripts.

Malfeasance in Blocking Early Treatment. Nebraska Attorney General Douglas Peterson’s Opinion (tinyurl.com/2yswskhp) on the use of ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 is a stunning exposé of official and medical misconduct. Political commentator Joe Herring called it “one of the most comprehensive summations of profit-driven malfeasance on the part of pharmaceutical companies, public medicine officials and their media allies that I have ever read coming from an official government source” (https://tinyurl.com/2ya54wcj).

AAPS News June 2022 – Depopulation

Share:

Volume 78, no. 6  June 2022

Even if the majority of our population still believes in it, Paul Ehrlich’s “population bomb” has not only fizzled but is imploding. If something does not change, we will have a situation unprecedented in world history, worse than even the Black Plague, Elon Musk pointed out in 2018. A video based on Our World in Data concerning number of children per woman from 1950 until 2020 shows fertility plummeting everywhere. Almost all the places that exceed replacement level are in Africa (https://twitter.com/TexasLindsay/status/1527722818053586950).

“Reproductive rights” championed by the AMA—and proposed as a fundamental human right by progressive politicians—mean almost exclusively the right not to reproduce. Sexual stimuli are pervasive, promoted even in kindergarten by vendors of “comprehensive sex education”—along with contraception, unlimited abortion, and forms of gratification that cannot produce a child (but can transmit infections that impair fertility).

Many young people do not want to have children, often because they have no hope for the future. Climate change, or pollution, or nuclear war will kill us all, they are told. Economic prospects are dismal. The “smart” future is life in the pod—no self-owned cars, no wide open spaces, every act or thought tracked.

And if there is no future, no frontier, and no opportunity to build or create something new, why work more than necessary to subsist and be entertained? And if there are no children? “Why do men work, says the poet Charles Peguy, if not for their children? The father throws himself away in hope,” writes Anthony Esolen (https://tinyurl.com/bdh2hwsp).

What if we do away with fatherhood, or “patriarchy,” as radical feminists demand? “Think of the hopelessness of the secular world, which has set its face in stubborn self-destruction against the figure of the father,” writes Esolen. “It is not just a gray life without fathers. It is a severely constricted life, bound to the present, not a culture but a mirthless floating along with the suggestions of mass phenomena.”

The global elite desires immortality, not through children, but rather through transhumanism (AAPS News, April 2021). World Economic Forum advisor Yuval Noah Harari claims that humans can gain “divine powers” (https://tinyurl.com/jvk85spv). Would a human cyborg be like the Head in C.S. Lewis’s 1945 novel, That Hideous Strength?

The Inverted Pyramid

An inverted population pyramid will collapse, as Musk pointed out. How will the shrinking number of workers support all the frail elderly? Medicare is already paying out more than it takes in, and digital dollars can’t answer call buttons or turn into bread.

 Was it “culling the herd” to send COVID-infected residents back to nursing homes? Age-related rationing in medical care is alive and well, writes AAPS past president Marilyn Singleton, M.D., J.D. (tinyurl.com/2pn9kv99).

U.S. life expectancy is at its lowest in 25 years, having fallen by 1.5 years in 2020 (https://tinyurl.com/2p9ywwn6), and continuing to fall in 2021. COVID is only part of the explanation and does not account for an alarming increase in death rates of working age people coinciding with COVID vaccine rollouts (AAPS News, March 2022). In a CNN interview, FDA chief Robert Califf, M.D., said that American lives are, on average, 5 years shorter than in other high-income countries, and that “misinformation” is the leading cause of death—regarding heart disease and other big killers as well as COVID. No one who is completely up to date on injections and gets the new antivirals should die of  COVID, he claims (tinyurl.com/2s44eeck).

Dr. Califf is former head of medical strategy at Google parent company Alphabet, and has worked closely with many pharmaceutical companies, including Merck and AstraZeneca.

Global elitists are more concerned about absolute numbers, not age distribution, and the total is about seven times more than our fragile planet can sustain, they say. Either we cut carbon emissions (achievable only by measures that will cut population) to prevent climate change, or climate change will cause mass death.

Dennis Meadows of the Club of Rome says he hopes we can achieve the needed depopulation (down to about 1 billion) by “civil (nonviolent) means”—he hopes by slow and “relatively equal” means. We can have 8 or 9 billion only with a strong dictatorship and much reduced consumption (tinyurl.com/pwtran8j).

Anti-COVID and anti-“climate change” policies are surely making the middle class more equal to government-dependent welfare recipients and less able to resist. A huge wealth transfer from small business to multinational corporations has occurred. The Woke professional managerial class in government agencies, academia, media, and corporations is doing fine—for now.

Will the “people rise up”? Yellow Vests were in the streets for 3 years, and Macron got re-elected. Canadian truckers and any who supported them are being financially ruined by Trudeau.

Successful revolts, such as the American Revolution, don’t come from the proles, but from elites with means, who fight on principle or because their own interests are threatened. The greatest threat to the global Left is men like Donald Trump or Elon Musk, who can afford the fight and are too rich to be bought, at least not with money. Where are our right-minded elites?

We may soon see massive depopulation from sickness, sudden death, infertility, and starvation. The result is the intention.


The ‘LGBTsQewing of America’

According to a February 2022 Gallup poll, about 20% of Generation Z (born 1997–2003) now identify as LGBTQ, as do 7% of Americans as a whole, double the rate in 2012. This is part of the solution to the “mystery” of the declining birth rate.

This shows that, “as history and science convincingly demonstrate,” sexuality is “highly malleable and amenable to social cues, norms, and proscriptions”—not biologically determined as advocates insist, writes attorney Alexander Zubatov. He states that what has occurred is a predictable result of the “undermining of all erstwhile sources of stability and meaning.” Self-centered individuals are on a “hedonic treadmill,” with society degenerating into a “spinning centrifuge unceremoniously hurling more and more of us outward toward irreconcilable opposite poles.” To save our young, we must “re-enchant our traditions…that the counterculture has done its utmost to uproot” (https://tinyurl.com/4wc7uwtc).

One commenter noted that we are witnessing deliberate social engineering—not with graphene or nano-chips, but with the skewing of education and culture. In a Christian culture, reproduction is naturally robust. The culture of “uneducated bigoted hillbillies” is being replaced by cosmopolitan modernism where people are self-absorbed and detached from reality. Population control has been surreptitiously achieved for “people of Pallor” who might be troublesome to the ruling Woke elite.


Elon Musk Gets Mad

Words from the 1976 movie Network sound eerily prescient. News anchor Howard Beale told his viewers: “I don’t have to tell you things are bad…. Everybody’s out of work, or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter, punks are running wild in the street…. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad!”

After making a buyout bid for Twitter, Elon Musk, reputedly the world’s richest man, got the right to examine the books. Unhappy Twitter employees started to out themselves as operatives of the Democratic Party. Musk learned that the Left’s  diversity sloganeering is a sham, and that what he thought was the kindness party is the party of division and hate. He suggested he might start voting Republican, and, as he predicted, the far Left’s hatestream against him commenced (tinyurl.com/yckkhzhm).


FDA’s ‘Future Framework’ for COVID Vaccines

No more clinical trials will ever be needed for COVID vaccines if FDA adopts the proposed framework, which is modeled on the procedure for influenza vaccines. Every year a new formulation is approved and deemed “safe and effective” because it is “biologically similar” to existing shots. Toby Rogers, Ph.D., calls this “the most reckless idea in the history of public health. It shows that the FDA has completely abandoned science and its…duty to protect the public” (tinyurl.com/29ekp5yv).


“Medicine is a social science, and politics is nothing more than medicine on a grand scale.” —Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902)


‘Mysterious’ Hepatitis

Spain’s Health Ministry sounded the alarm about 650 cases of acute hepatitis worldwide, with no epidemiologic connection (https://tinyurl.com/pdjnbx5u). In a letter to the editor of the Journal of Hepatology, Hersh Shroff et al. report a case series of 16 patients with post-COVID-vaccination liver injury. Authors write:  “We emphasize that our intent is not to promote vaccine hesitancy. The overwhelming benefits of these and other highly efficacious vaccines in the setting of a global pandemic greatly surpass any potential risk of liver injury that may exist (https://tinyurl.com/ycku3f9k). (Also see p 4.)

“Hepato-symptom laundering?” asks Jessica Rose, Ph.D. She notes that 60,442 liver-related adverse events had been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as of May 27 (https://tinyurl.com/ybayrs7y).

Consumers are warned to discard organic strawberries that may be linked to cases of hepatitis A (so far, 12 hospitalizations and no deaths or transplants) (https://tinyurl.com/pvs3c9nd).


Vaccine Efficacy

The FDA vaccine efficacy threshold should be lowered to below 50%, proposes Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) (https://tinyurl.com/m2daxaer). Though the number is “fluid,” Pfizer and Moderna are claiming efficacy of 80% in children under 5 years old, ahead of a Jun 15 meeting. “Is the FDA seriously considering basing national policy, that impacts 18 million children, by relying on a study with only 10 cases?” asks Toby Rogers, who also notes that nearly all children have natural immunity by now (tinyurl.com/bp7268vm).

Vaccine efficacy falls rapidly with time (tinyurl.com/56rfnvuc), and some suggest that it reaches 0% or even negative efficacy (tinyurl.com/48nf99rs). The “well-run” Pfizer trial used to claim 90+% efficacy is riddled with flaws and alleged fraud, writes statistician Mathew Crawford: “the house of cards shakes” (https://tinyurl.com/5cua89f2). The vaccine may impair long-term immunity by reducing neutralizing anti-nucleocapsid antibodies (https://tinyurl.com/yckhm9dt).

In the real world, Portugal, which has virtually no one left to vaccinate, has had multiple waves of COVID; currently, about 30 people (the equivalent of 1,000 Americans) die every day. In Oklahoma, about half vaccinated, nearly 80% of COVID hospitalizations in mid-May were in partly or fully vaccinated patients. Some health departments have stopped breaking out COVID reports by vaccine status (tinyurl.com/27bmbjs4).

ACTION OF THE MONTH

Congress falsely claims that HR 6833 will reduce the cost of insulin. Ask the Senate to reject this phony measure and instead end kickbacks, the main culprit. https://p2a.co/9aO0Meq


Special Districts, Special Privileges

The Florida legislature, in response to Disney World’s  criticism of the state law to protect schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination, dissolved its unaccountable kingdom, the Reedy Creek Improvement District, which was created in 1967 so Disney could control its affairs without interference from voters.

In 1934, President Franklin Roosevelt urged the formation of special districts to skirt laws that limited local debt or required voter referendums to issue debt. There are now more than 38,000. After the tax revolt in the 1970s, they became a convenient way for government to escape new limitations on taxes. They have increased spending faster than other types of government because voters don’t know how to stop them; collectively, they spend more than $200 billion a year. In Nassau County, N.Y., 140 different special districts cost the average homeowner $1,000 a year in property taxes. Such districts do almost everything a city can do, but without most of the constraints. (Wall St J 4/25/33, https://tinyurl.com/2p9h3nax).

If the cancellation is fully implemented, Disney will be subject to county zoning and regulatory agencies, such as building codes and highway requirements.

Perhaps Reedy Creek won’t be the last to be brought to heel.


Administrative State Loses One

In Jarkasy v. SEC, “the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just handed the administrative state its head on a platter,” states AAPS secretary Lawrence Huntoon, M.D., Ph.D. “No more can these administrative agencies try cases in their own administrative tribunal where they act as prosecutor, judge, and jury. The Court reapplied the ‘chains of the Constitution’ to bind them down.”

George Jaskasy, a hedge fund founder and investment adviser, was accused, convicted, and sentenced for securities fraud for allegedly inflating the value of assets. The Dodd-Frank Act allows the Securities and Exchange Commission to use its own tribunal. The Court ruled that this violates the right to a trial by jury and the separation of powers doctrine. The ruling applies only to the SEC but could encourage challenges to other independent agencies. If appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court it might threaten the 1935 Humphrey’s Executor  precedent that upheld limitations on the President’s ability to remove members of bipartisan independent agencies (WSJ 5/22/22, https://tinyurl.com/3webkbyu).


COVID Vaccine Litigation

Pfizer moves to dismiss lawsuit brought by whistleblower Brook Jackson concerning alleged clinical trial fraud (tinyurl.com/mr273p4z), claiming that usual rules don’t apply in  agreements executed under the defense department’s Other Transaction Authority (OTA) (tinyurl.com/58fwx2dm).

FAA, DOT, and 18 airlines are to be sued over employee mandates that violate constitutional rights to medical and religious liberties (https://tinyurl.com/f82wrpkf).

More than 500 servicemembers filed suit in in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas over the government’s mandating a vaccine that was not FDA approved and could not be administered legally: Wilson v. Austin, Case 4-22-cv-00438 (https://tinyurl.com/awz7knpd).

Tip of the Month: Some of the onerous COVID-19 vaccination requirements are quietly expiring, and it is worth checking your own state regulations. For example, Rhode Island imposed a mandatory COVID vaccination requirement on health care workers beginning Oct 21, 2021. But that requirement expired in March, and the left-leaning state replaced it with a masking requirement instead. This enables physicians and others in Rhode Island who declined to be vaccinated to begin working again, albeit while being told to wear an N95 mask when in contact with patients.


‘Disinformation’ Patrols

The Biden Administration’s controversial “Minitrue,” the Disinformation Governance Board (tinyurl.com/3v46e9pa), has been “paused,” but organizations such as the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) are there to hold doctors accountable.

ABIM president Richard Baron stated: “We’re not regulating speech. People can say whatever they want, but as the [ABIM], we have an interest in being sure that our credential means something and that people who hold it are differentiated from people who don’t hold it.” He is apparently threatening to decredential doctors for statements made in a legislative hearing or court proceeding, if ABIM somehow determines them to be clearly false, egregious, or “crossing the line” (https://tinyurl.com/ycktjjzt).

At the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki reassured the elites that BigTech will continue to control the narrative. The weaponization of information has been going on for at least 5 or 6 years. “I think we’ve come a long way,” she said. “If…you do a search…,when it comes to sensitive topics, you’re going to see them coming from more authoritative sources” (tinyurl.com/4saw69v8).


Disinformation Kills

The narrative is that vaccines are “safe and effective” but CO2 is deadly. The Dept. of Health and Human Services has asked “healthcare stakeholders” to take the pledge to “At a minimum, reduce organizational emissions by 50% by 2030…and achieve net-zero by 2050, publicly accounting for progress on this goal every year” (https://tinyurl.com/2p9ytmjz).

The result of this narrative is that millions of people are likely to starve to death in the next year. “Inflation, particularly of fossil fuels, and the crop failures caused by lack of fertilizers (again, exacerbated by lack of fossil fuels), will mean mass starvation,” writes Kurt Schlichter. Regime adherents are not willing to do “what it will take to derail the death train roaring down the tracks.” He attributes this to their “pagan climate religion” and the power they get from denying others access to fuel. The result is “not happenstance but a plan”  (tinyurl.com/3vp8ecp3).


Big Pharma News

PharmaMar CEO José María Fernández Sousa-Faro, along with 2,200 others, was accused by Spanish police of buying fake COVID vaccine passports (https://tinyurl.com/2p9casm8).

“A big demand problem” is causing Moderna to dump 30 million unwanted COVID-19 vaccine doses. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told WEF of 7 billion “surplus” doses in warehouses (https://tinyurl.com/yckzbm7r).


Correspondence

King Fauci?  The Doctor Who Would Be King, reviewed in the Wall St J (https://tinyurl.com/3dva8zwk), is likely the dream book of progressives/liberals/socialists. Dr. Jean Joseph David became known as “King David” in French Cameroon in 1939–1944. His task was to “reinvent a new society based on healthy foundations,” encapsulating the idea of a “civilizing mission,” a “fundamental principle” of European colonialism. France was treating an African tract as a laboratory where modern medicine could show “its capacity to transform society and cultivate life.” David’s methods were brutal. Dr. Fauci might envy his power.

The review notes that the French super-doctor ended his career in a suburb of Paris as a medical sales rep for a drug company. Once a king in a Conradian Heart of Darkness, “he petered out in the heart of drabness.”

70 Years of Brainwashing. We already live in an advanced cultural Marxist society even though half of the country is still lulled in the false sense that we are still a Constitutional Republic. The globalists have transformed young generations into pliable communist drones. People whisper to their friends that they do not like what is going on, but they are too afraid to speak out for fear of losing their jobs or licenses, or of public shaming and ridicule. Generations of children have been B.F. Skinner’s lumps of clay who have been shaped into citizens who hate their own country. Today they fly the Ukrainian flag in support of a country they know nothing about, determined to defend its borders, language, and culture from afar while they are content with their own American culture being destroyed from within.

Excise Political Loserdom. Why do conservatives always  compromise their position to the point of surrender? Want to lose an argument or a societal conflict? Just accept the loser position and consider it to be more civilized or even-tempered.

The Mainspring of Disinformation. During my short stay in D.C. I was told by high-level people at CDC, NIH, and FDA that their aim with each announcement was to “make the U.S. unmanageable and ungovernable under Trump.” They released bogus CDC reports on COVID deaths, suppressed reports of daily suicides in children, and misled Trump on the effects of lockdowns and of the fraud vaccine, which they knew had huge problems of safety and effectiveness. It was all about forcing every man, woman, and child on the globe to take the vaccine. Almost all the media worked in unison with the insiders, the politicians, and the deep-state bureaucracy. They hated Trump so much and did not care about the U.S. There is no negotiating with these people. Trump should have never ever played nice. They savaged him for it; he did not know they repay decency in D.C. with more hate and brutality. They win at all costs, and they will destroy the nation to get their way—look around you.

Nothing on COVID by CDC, NIH, Health Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE)—nothing was based on data or science. So-called experts were corrupted, inept, illogical, irrational, sloppy, and reckless. We need a proper public legal inquiry, and if we find that any did wrong and that their decisions cost lives, they must be held accountable. I want an acute focus on vaccines in children. I think people know that children will die, but they do not care. Their careers, grants, and fame are more important.

 A 1989 Inflection Point? According to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in an interview with Mike Tyson (https://tinyurl.com/sr7zfwuy), if you were born before 1989, your chance of having a chronic disease is 12%. If you were born after 1989, it’s 54%. In 1989, the CDC packed multiple doses of several more vaccines into the childhood schedule. Every one of the injuries that have become an epidemic is listed as a side effect on the manufacturer’s inserts of the 72 vaccine doses that are now mandated for our children.

Joseph Scherzer, M.D., Paradise Valley, AZ


Autoimmune Hepatitis. Yet another scientific article points to the danger of current COVID vaccines given to children, and  is another reason I believe mandates for these vaccines for children should be criminal. Just a few weeks after the rollout of this vaccine for children, WHO issued a global alert about higher than usual rates of hepatitis in previously healthy children, after ruling out the common viral causes. Many cases were so severe the patients required a liver transplant or died. The Journal of Hepatology (tinyurl.com/2p98twab) reported a case showing that “COVID-19 vaccination can elicit a distinct T cell-dominant immune-mediated hepatitis.” The American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, FDA, et al. are going to create ever-increasing mistrust (justifiably), the longer they ignore a rising mountain of evidence.

AAPS News May 2022 – The Narrative in Organized Medicine
Share:

Volume 78, no. 5  May 2022

Many (most?) Americans are apparently becoming NPCs.

A feature of video games, the non-player character says whatever the computer algorithm directs. The NPC meme, based on the Wojak meme, appeared on 4chan in July 2016, with this description of the type of person the meme represents: “If you get in a discussion with them it’s always the same buzzwords and hackneyed arguments. They’re the kind of people who make a show of discomfort when you break the status quo like by breaking the normie barrier to invoke a real discussion. It’s like in a when you accidentally talk to somebody twice and they give you the exact lines word for word once more.”

The meme is a gray head with a blank stare and a triangular nose. One Twitter post depicted the robot head being opened and the old chip (such as COVID pandemic) being replaced by the latest Current Thing (at this moment Ukraine). Other chips are for climate crisis, systemic racism, LGBTQ rights, unrestricted abortion (“reproductive health”), and disparities.

Having attended nearly every House of Delegates meeting of the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) for about 30 years, your editor has observed the progression described by Minnesota physicians (p 4). At this year’s meeting, held by Zoom for the third time, the NPCs  seemed to me to be clearly in the majority.

The 22 resolutions, mostly Woke, came primarily from the Medical Students Section. No individual claimed authorship; they were likely lifted from the AMA, with lengthy, referenced “whereas” clauses. The reference committee recommended adoption. The few extracted from the consent agenda passed 80 to 20.

Unanswered questions: What will the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee do with $5,000 (the only fiscal note in the resolutions)? What is its measure of success? [No, there will not be discrimination against straight white men, and it is not like the old Jewish quotas.] Does “gender affirmation” include surgery or off-label use of dangerous drugs like puberty blockers in minors?

ArMA has, with few objections, changed its “aggressively neutral” position on abortion. Now it can simply say abortion is “essential to reproductive health” when opposing any legislation that might decrease the number of abortions, instead of contriving a reason such as “interference with the patient-physician relationship.” If it loses members, so what; it may gain more.

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) was the most contentious issue. Dedicated physicians have been fighting valiantly to prevent the AMA from dropping its opposition and taking a neutral position. ArMA committees have also been debating this for years, and the division of opinion has been about 50:50 (AAPS News, August 2018). Proponents may acknowledge the potential slippery slope, but deny the existence of problems in Oregon, Canada, or Europe (AAPS News, August 2019). They do not see a red line, an absolute moral prohibition against prescribing lethal medicines to end a patient’s life, but only a discussion of the acceptable conditions. As with abortion, what is permissible may become “essential,” and supposed conscience protections may prove meaningless. The ArMA resolution was referred to a task force to be appointed by the incoming president and instructed to report within 6 months.

No Right to Dissent

Only one resolution received a “do not pass” recommendation: one that the AAPS board of directors will present at our upcoming annual meeting (p 2). One discussant said it was like saying “the sky is blue,” as doctors already have freedom. Another said that freedom has limits—we need to protect against “harmful misinformation.” It was “referred,” likely to be memory holed.

The takeover by cultural Marxists is virtually complete. They have discovered that they only need a small majority to rule. In Western democracies convincing 51% is as good as convincing 99%. But the Narrative can be implemented without a majority; all that is needed is to convince the brainwashed college graduates whose connections and status will propel them into leadership positions in academia and industry. They will be selected, not elected. They cannot be voted out and can choose not to follow the orders of elected officials—and can cancel people who do not obey them. So far the right-wing upper middle class is going along.

In 1924 American billionaire James B. Duke established the Duke University Endowment and virtually built from scratch a brand new conservative university on par with the Northern Ivy League Sisters. This plan worked until the 1960s when cultural Marxists imported from Europe cannibalized academia from the inside. Since then conservatives abandoned academia and professional managerial institutions. Duke University like others fell into the hands of the enemy. While important smaller institutions have been founded, no one has undertaken to challenge Harvard and other established elites (https://tinyurl.com/bddzfyns).

The average middle-class conservative employed in a relatively secure industry, living in a sheltered conservative community, is content—until he has to go to a university hospital and be treated as a “bigot” by Woke students and residents, or finds out that his daughter is scheduled for an “affirming mastectomy.”

Conservatives are cheering that Elon Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion, and leftists are in a panic about the possibility that free speech might be allowed, even in 240 characters.

Will that suffice to destroy false Narratives? As the late Nino Camardese, M.D., said: “Truth + 1 = a majority.”


Slippery Slope—or Moral Cliff?

Proponents of medical aid in dying generally reject the slippery-slope argument by claiming that safeguards work or that one should not deny some patients this relief just because abuse might happen (tinyurl.com/5fhvsbwp). But once the premise is accepted that physicians may ethically kill their patients, medicine is fundamentally changed. Then, “the progression from death-on-demand to death-at-doctors’-discretion makes a grim kind of sense.” As Justice Neil Gorsuch pointed out, “physician-assisted suicide always relies on the physician to make the fatal decision.”

“Compassionate motives don’t make something morally right, nor can they prevent horrifying abuses of human dignity.” It’s a drop off a moral cliff. “Once death is a treatment option, patients can no longer trust their doctors, their insurance companies, or even their families to have their best interests at heart” (https://tinyurl.com/4frkwpeu).


COVID Shots Suppress Immunity

The safety signals for COVID jabs are “out of sight,” write Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., Peter McCullough, M.D., and others. An Indian study suggested that the shots might suppress the innate immune system by inhibiting type-1 interferon. The mRNA in the shot is modified to look more like human RNA rather than viral, so it persists longer and does not trigger the interferon pathway. Worse, the pathway is actively suppressed by the large number of spike proteins produced and by the microRNAs in the exosomes released by the stressed immune cells. Peptide sequences in antibodies produced by the jab may result in autoimmune disease through molecular mimicry. Associated neurologic problems include tremors, tinnitus, Bell palsy, and migraines related to trigeminal nerve inflammation. We might see an explosion in Parkinson disease, demyelinating disease, Alzheimer’s, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (https://tinyurl.com/muyymnmk).

A detailed description of the mechanisms emphasizes their importance in cancer suppression (tinyurl.com/mt6w7m5h).


Florida Warning on Transgender Therapy

In a Department of Health statement, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo said: “Current evidence does not support the use of puberty blockers, hormone treatments or surgical procedures for children and adolescents experiencing gender dysphoria.” The statement notes such treatments have “an unacceptably high risk of doing harm” to minors, and that 80% of children seeking clinical care lose their desire to identify with the “non-birth sex” (https://tinyurl.com/5epa7656).

DOH guidance was praised by Liberty Council, which cited FDA reports of 25,645 “serious” reactions to leuprolide acetate (Lupron), including 6,379 deaths (tinyurl.com/yc8y8yzx). The drug is FDA approved for advanced prostate cancer and precocious puberty, but is being used off-label in children diagnosed with gender dysphoria, despite the absence of peer-reviewed studies on its long-term effects (tinyurl.com/2p9ck3st).

Free Debate and Physician Prescribing

Resolution to be presented at AAPS annual meeting:

WHEREAS:

Science is a method for seeking truth, not a dogmatic creed handed down by approved experts;

Experts have been proved wrong, and what was a minority or individual opinion proved correct many times;

Science requires free, open debate;

There are enormous conflicts of interest involving experts and the pharmaceutical industry;

Physicians undergo rigorous training that equips them to independently evaluate evidence;

The randomized controlled trial is not the only kind of evidence; is itself subject to bias and other flaws; and is often unavailable, especially for a newly recognized disease;

[Under the Hippocratic ethic, the physician] has pledged to “prescribe regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone”;

The ethical physician places patients first;

Physicians may be subject to severe pressure from employers, hospitals, insurers or others to conform to a protocol that may not be in the best interest of an individual patient;

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT:

AAPS supports the right and duty of physicians to prescribe according to their own best judgment, with the commitment to do no harm to anyone, and defends this right in its positions on legislation, regulation, hospital medical staff bylaws, or licensure board actions.


Students for Total Transformation

No fringe organization, White Coats for Black Lives (WC4BL) has more than 70 chapters at U.S. medical schools. It claims that “dominant medical practice in the United States has been built on the dehumanization and exploitation of Black people.” Ridding the medical system of this allegedly pervasive racism requires “dismantling anti-Black racism, white supremacy, capitalism, imperialism, colonialism, and cisheteropatriarchy,” and also “dismantling fatphobia,” embracing “Black queer feminist praxis,” and “unlearning toxic medical knowledge.” WC4BL blames “the professionalization of the medical field” for the utilization of “violence” to “oust women and femme healers.” The Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC) recent guide to anti-racism planning highlights WC4BL by name, and many medical schools approve of WC4BL’s demands and incorporate them in their curriculum (https://tinyurl.com/2ts4v9c2).

Does the Nuremberg Code Apply?

While often referred to in the context of vaccine mandates, the Nuremberg Code has never been codified in U.S. law. In the years immediately following the Nuremberg war crimes trials, most commentators believe the influence of the Code in the U.S. was imperceptible. The prevailing view was that the medical defendants were Nazis first and last; by definition nothing they did was relevant to the U.S. Their conduct was so extreme “as to have little or no bearing on civilized people who conducted scientific research according to their consciences.” The longstanding tradition of medical ethics embodied in the Oath of Hippocrates was regarded as a generally adequate basis upon which the medical profession could police itself (tinyurl.com/9ddrcbdf).

In 1952, a Pentagon lawyer recognized the Code as good law that applied to the U.S. Department of Defense. However, courts have viewed it as being superseded by national security concerns. In 1966, Dr. Henry Beecher published a paper in the New England Journal of Medicine contending that there were numerous examples of the abuse of human subjects in the published medical literature. The Tuskegee study in the 1960s and 1970s forcefully showed the need for concern. The Code was influential and has contributed to a “growth in moral perception”  (ibid.).

In the case of Abdullahi v. Pfizer, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit wrote in 2009 that “states throughout the world have shown through international accords and domestic law-making that they consider the prohibition on nonconsensual medical experimentation identified at Nuremberg as a norm of customary international law.” The  case concerned Pfizer’s testing an antibiotic in Nigerian children, resulting in many deaths and serious injuries. The court concluded in a 2-to-1 decision that jurisdiction existed under the Alien Tort Statute (tinyurl.com/yrz2vzwj), and Pfizer eventually settled for $75 million.

The opinion noted: “As Justices of the Supreme Court have recognized [in U.S. v. Stanley], ‘[t]he medical trials at Nuremberg in 1947 deeply impressed upon the world that experimentation with unknowing human subjects is morally and legally unacceptable.’”

Also, “the fact that the prohibition on medical experimentation on humans without consent has been consciously embedded by Congress in our law and reaffirmed on numerous occasions by the FDA demonstrates that the United States government views the norm as the source of a binding legal obligation.”


Federal Judge Strikes Down CDC Mask Mandate

  Citing violations of the Administrative Procedure Act, federal district court judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle struck down the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mandate requiring travelers to wear masks on airplanes and other forms of public transportation in Health Freedom Defense Fund v. Biden (https://tinyurl.com/mr33rtm4).

The CDC failed to give the required notice-and-comment period. “At the time when the CDC issued the mandate, the COVID-19 pandemic had been ongoing for almost a year and COVID-19 cases were decreasing,” Judge Mizelle wrote. “This timing undercuts the CDC’s suggestion that its action was so urgent that a thirty-day comment period was contrary to the public interest.” Moreover, she wrote that the mandate exceeds the agency’s statutory authority, for which it cites the Public Health Services Act of 1944. Forcing individuals to wear a face mask does not meet any reasonable definition of “sanitation.”

“Before COVID, the CDC had really played more of…[an] advise and consent role to the state public health authorities. It had never before…said we’re going to…directly dictate how people can conduct themselves and…use their property,” said Brant Hadaway, an attorney for the plaintiffs (tinyurl.com/ymmdsf54).

The Dept. of Justice has appealed the ruling, even though the mandate has expired, “to preserve the government’s public health authorities” (https://tinyurl.com/4tuemu7d).

Airlines are offering refunds to some passengers who don’t want to be on a flight with an unmasked person. So far, few requests have been received (https://tinyurl.com/y66j2pz8).

Lawrence O. Gostin, J.D., writes that “We’re Toying with a Ruinous End to COVID Travel Masking” and “CDC’s powers to protect the public during health emergencies hangs in the balance.” He compares the unprecedented power to force healthy people to wear a mask to the long-held power to detain persons  infected with smallpox, tuberculosis, or Ebola. “The judge’s opinion literally handcuffs the CDC” (tinyurl.com/ycks47ew).


Conscience Rights Hang in the Balance

The Biden administration is preparing to scrap a Trump-era rule that allows medical workers to refuse to provide services that conflict with their religious or moral beliefs. A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services said: “HHS has made clear through the unified regulatory agenda that we are in the rulemaking process.” The conscience rule, unveiled in 2018 and finalized in 2019, was blocked by federal courts and has never been implemented. It would have allowed doctors, nurses, medical students, pharmacists, and other medical workers to refuse to provide abortions, contraception, “gender-affirming” care, vasectomies or any procedure to which they object (https://tinyurl.com/ykc746ay). Refusal to do an abortion or to treat a minor with off-label hormones might be called “discrimination.”


The Law on Off-Label Prescribing

Off-label prescribing is perfectly lawful. In general office-based practice, 21% of prescriptions are off-label, and 40% to 80% of recipients of commonly prescribed psychotropic medications are receiving these medications off-label. With antidepressants, more than 80% of off-label prescriptions had no strong evidence of efficacy for the indication, and there is significant risk of adverse drug events. The statutory and regulatory framework affecting off-label prescription and especially anything that might be construed as “promotion” is very complex. Physicians need to familiarize themselves with the rules (tinyurl.com/zstnkujz).


Tip of the Month: Hospitals exploit employment contracts to impose sham peer review, thereby circumventing the bylaws. Sometimes hospitals enter into a one-sided contract with a group of physicians, and the group contracts with individual physicians including a termination-without-cause provision. When the hospital wants to exclude a physician who stands up for patients, the hospital CEO merely calls the group CEO and tells him to terminate the physician. Avoiding employment contracts, particularly ones that allow termination without cause, is preferable.


Correspondence

Scarred Hearts. The CDC reassured the public that sufficient time had passed to conclude that there are no significant long-term adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccine. “Long-term” had not occurred yet, and they knew it. Just another lie. Now, young healthy boys are scarred and injured for life. A follow-up study (tinyurl.com/3struzhc) of patients 18 or younger, who had been treated for cardiac inflammation within a week of the second dose of the Pfizer jab, showed that nearly 70% had persistent late gadolinium enhancement on MRI three to eight months after they were first examined—even though most patients appeared to respond to treatment (https://tinyurl.com/3pc3f6nw).

A Nordic cohort study (JAMA, tinyurl.com/zmd85fp7) showed that the rate of myocarditis/pericarditis in persons receiving Comirnaty™ was 5 times that of the unvaccinated; for Spikevax™,  the risk was 15 times higher. Nordic countries have halted the use of the Moderna product (Spikevax), but researchers write that benefits outweigh the risks (tinyurl.com/2p8men9k).

Record Deaths in Young Athletes. Tragic events are hampering the joy of spectator sports. Even the media can’t hide players suffering cardiac arrest on the game field, shortly after receiving a COVID jab.

Who Is to Blame for Price Hikes? The Biden administration is blaming Vladimir Putin for March’s 8.5% year-over-year increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). But prices were surging long before Russian troops entered Ukraine. The previous excuse was “greedy corporations.” The main culprit is actually the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented spree of money creation. The welfare-warfare-fiat money system will end. We don’t know when, or whether it will be replaced by an even more authoritarian government or by a return to limited, constitutional government.

Wokeness. How did “monolithic theology,” the mixture of morality with consumerism that favors preferred business and political interests, get into medicine? How and why did the Minnesota Medical Association convert from representative physician advocacy to woke corporate ideology? As Vivek Ramaswamy, author of Woke, Inc., writes: “The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people. By mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we as Americans lack both.” Most American physicians are now at risk as employees of woke corporations. As such they are enmeshed without power in the politics of a woke-industrial complex. A final solution for MMA was to disband the House of Delegates.

Lee Beecher, M.D., Maple Grove, MN


The Source. I think that the genesis of medicine’s adopting the “woke” ideology comes from the World Health Organization final report that came out in 2008: “Closing the gap in a generation: health equity through action on the social determinants of health,” narratives constantly cited by the AMA  and MMA. The assumption is that all health outcome differences are created by the doctors or the system. It is racist to believe otherwise. Not only the usual suspect institutions, but science and medicine too, are in the grip of a monolithic theology. Woke medical students believe that only government can overcome the inequities. I expect our federal constitutional republic to become an authoritarian non-democratic government within my lifetime.

The Way We Were. Until the time of COVID, I thought that free speech was a fundamental right. Having been assigned core texts like 1984, Brave New World, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, and The Trial and Death of Socrates in fifth grade in the California school system, I believed there was no way anything like that could happen in the U.S. Internet censorship and government-controlled propaganda were unfortunate things that happened to those who lived in China. I believed that physicians were deeply committed to upholding the Oath of Hippocrates, and that doctors had freedom and responsibility to diagnose and treat patients as individuals and were guided by ethical principles codified after WWII in federal law as the “common rule.” Patients had medical autonomy, and informed consent for any medical procedure was ethically critical. Dissent and discussion was a time-honored tradition with a long history of leading to improvements in medical care. Then everything changed.

AAPS News April 2022 – Death Toll Mounting

Share:

Volume 78, no. 4  April 2022

We know that both soldiers and civilians are tragically dying in Ukraine. War propaganda being what it is, we don’t know the accurate casualty count, but we know the general mechanism of death (explosion, gunshot wound, etc.), and how it might be stopped (make peace). But while people watch the exciting war footage on television, young, healthy people outside the war zone are silently dropping dead, one by one. Why? What to do?

We do not know the number of persons who died from as opposed to with COVID-19. We also don’t know the death count from “friendly fire.” How many died because their social contacts were disrupted or their businesses destroyed? Was any real person’s life actually saved because you couldn’t get a haircut or doctor’s appointment, or is the trade-off in lives purely a guess by self-interested authorities imposing the lockdowns? How many died or will die because of COVID vaccine effects?

There’s a war on, so expect war propaganda. In war, it is unpatriotic or even treasonous to criticize the leaders.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), states Dr. Peter McCullough, is sitting on reports of 24,000 deaths shortly after a COVID injection (tinyurl.com/ms5trsyp). Would deaths of these people be justified, in case mass vaccination might save some other people who might catch the disease from an unvaccinated person? Are they simply the collateral damage of war?

The “winter of severe illness and death” that Biden predicted in December for the unvaccinated did not happen. Raw data from Public Health Scotland show that over the 4-week period ending on Feb 4, deaths per million population in the twice-vaccinated were three times as high as in the unvaccinated, and in the once-boosted were twice as high as in the unvaccinated. After this, PHS stopped releasing such data (https://tinyurl.com/38jeu3m9).

Most of the post-injection deaths have occurred in the first week. However, a second wave of deaths peaking around 180 days in seven states (KY, TN, GA, MI, MN, TX, and FL) is pointed out by researcher Craig Paardekooper. These states have a many-fold higher death rate. In the early peak, cardiac arrest is the most frequent cause of death; in the later, “COVID-19” or possibly misdiagnosed similar illness. Late deaths suggest that a toxin is persisting longer, say by evading the natural immune system, or  is being replaced. Paardekooper states that Pfizer was developing three different types of vaccine, using non-modified RNA, nucleoside-modified RNA that contains pseudouridine (p 2), or self-amplifying RNA (tinyurl.com/3dr2mrrs).

Different vaccine lots also differ greatly in the integrity of the active ingredient, mRNA. In some, only 55% is intact, far below the generally accepted manufacturing standard yet intentionally accepted by regulators, states Sasha Latypova (ibid.).

The extreme variability in adverse event reports between batches, with 1 in 200 lots having more than 1,000 reports in VAERS, suggests that vaccine manufacturers are doing toxic dose range testing without consent, writes James Hill, M.D., J.D.

“Paardekooper’s VAERS analysis should be replicated or refuted by others, including government investigators, as soon as possible” (tinyurl.com/2p94evrm).

In a Pfizer contract with the EU, the section on labeling redacts the phrase “shall not be serialized” from the public version. Making vials untraceable would enable mixing increasing numbers from “hot lots” into safe lots. Then an increasing incidence of heart attacks or strokes could not be attributed to supposedly unchanging vaccines (tinyurl.com/tmwtescj).

The knowing distribution of adulterated or mislabeled products signals intent. Establishing fraud would remove the manufacturers’ liability shield; thus, investigation must be suppressed.

Purging Dissent

U.S. military servicemembers who decline the COVID vaccine or apply for a religious exemption are being terminated regardless of their skill level or natural immune status. Yet commanders are issuing illegal orders in violation of  Army regulations issued in the Sept 14, 2021, Fragmentary Order (FRAGO) number 5, which states: “Commanders will ensure sufficient doses of Department of Defense approved vaccines are on hand and available for their unit.” The Secretary of Defense himself told every servicemember in his Aug 24, 2021, memo that the only vaccines for use will “receive full licensure from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in accordance with FDA-approved labeling and guidance.” To date, however, there are no FDA-approved fully licensed vaccines available on any U.S. military installation (https://tinyurl.com/yc5ycvs9). So, the order is ignored.

It is estimated that in these times of escalating world tensions, the U.S. Air Force is already short 2,000 pilots (https://tinyurl.com/mv6wdcax). We do not know how many are or will be disabled by mandated injections. We do know that Russian and Chinese soldiers are not given mRNA vaccines.

Dissenting physicians are being purged (“disciplined”) for mentioning possible adverse effects—as presented by America’s Frontline Doctors’ “Doc Tracy” (tinyurl.com/2p8sjy4r).

Biowarfare?

While there’s talk of biowarfare labs in Ukraine, half the world population may harbor a biologic time bomb. “It’s beyond any shadow of a doubt that the vaccines are causing a large number of deaths,” states Dr. McCullough  (tinyurl.com/2p92v2be).


History Lesson: Cause or Effect?

Angela Merkel may have decided that Russia could never be reconciled with the West based on Putin’s “tirade against the decadence of democracies, whose decay of values, he said, was exemplified by the spread of ‘gay culture’” (tinyurl.com/54e2auz2).

Why is the LGBTQ agenda a litmus test for the Woke West?

Gay culture was a feature in the fall of Greece, the fall of Rome, the French Revolution with Jacobins, and the Weimar Republic. Friedrich Nietzsche, who was an outstanding historian specializing in the history of the culture of ancient Rome and Greece, observed in Twilight of the Idols:

“Church and morality say: ‘A people or a society are destroyed by vice and luxury.’ My revalued reason says: when a people degenerates…, then the result is vice and luxury (that is, the craving for ever stronger and more frequent stimulation necessary to arouse an exhausted nature)…. The newspaper reader says: this party destroys itself by making such a mistake. My higher politics says: a party that makes such a mistake has already reached its end (it is finished)” [trans. by H.B.].


Not Really mRNA

Pfizer, Moderna, and BioNTech claim that the messenger RNA in their products is quickly degraded. However, writes Dr. Robert Malone, it is known to persist for at least 60 days in lymph nodes. In fact, the vaccine mRNA differs from natural mRNA in having pseudouridine randomly incorporated during the manufacturing process. Unlike uridine, pseudouridine can pair with all other bases, not just adenine. This could account for interference with the innate immune response and the reactivation of latent DNA viruses. Failure of regulators to investigate these effects before authorizing widespread use is “appropriately classified as ‘willful ignorance’” (https://tinyurl.com/ycktp47f).

  “I get asked all the time ‘what can I do to eliminate the RNA vaccines from my body,’ to which I have to answer—nothing,” writes Dr. Malone (ibid.).


Do Flu Shots Work?

As Alex Berenson pointed out, the number of flu shots increased from 12 million in 1980 to almost 200 million in 2020, but influenza deaths did not decrease (tinyurl.com/2p84av2w). Difficulties in interpretation include population increase and the definition of an influenza death. Using additional data from Berenson (https://tinyurl.com/46ay923m): In the 1980-1981 flu season, 12 million of the U.S. population of 227 million (5%) got flu shots, and about 20,000 people died from flu (80 per million). In the 2017-2018 flu season, 155 million of 327 million people (47%) got flu shots, and 52,000 died from flu (about 160 per million). This obviously doesn’t prove that flu shots kill people with flu, but it certainly does not show them to be helpful.


“The symbols Russia values most are the Icon and the Axe: Faith and Power…. Her revolution was the search for a new absolute….  In 1917…  the Bolsheviks thought they were at the gates of heaven, but we know now they were at the gates of hell. Evil is never more terrible than when it wears the mask of goodness. Ideology without pity always leads to crime.”

Phillip H. McMath, 2022,  https://tinyurl.com/6fnthwvn


Tricking the Children

Children are often resistant to taking the COVID jabs. More than 70% of COVID shots are received at pharmacies, as fewer people visit doctors, states are permitting pharmacists to administer more shots, and pharmacists have found ways to avoid having screaming children in their aisles. One clinic directed children with colored armbands, identified by their parents as potential screamers, to the “VIP lounge” so they don’t frighten others. The clinic featured live music, jugglers, and vaccinators wearing superhero capes. The post-shot waiting room had a librarian reading stories, a magician, the chance to write a thank-you note to vaccine developers, and a life-size cutout of high priest Anthony Fauci (WSJ 11/23/21, tinyurl.com/3n8maebv).


Mandate Voted Down in Germany

With 76.6% of the country having received at least one jab, more than 200,00 daily new cases of COVID are still reported. The Bundestag rejected a proposal to mandate vaccination for everyone over age 60 by a 378–296 vote. Chancellor Olaf Scholz was disappointed, saying the government will try to persuade more people to get jabbed (https://tinyurl.com/43d299h9).


More Revelations from Pfizer Documents

After getting the EUA (Emergency Use Authorization), Pfizer hired 600 people within 3 months to process adverse event reports and expected to need 1,800 more (tinyurl.com/24cudrbv).

No genotoxicity or carcinogenicity studies were done on RNA LNP-based products (tinyurl.com/yc32mcmy).

The rate of myocarditis was recognized to be as high as 1 in 1,000 in an informed-consent document. A previous study on a smallpox vaccine “suggested an incidence of possible subclinical myocarditis (based on cardiac troponin T elevations) 60-times higher than the incidence rate of overt clinical myocarditis” (https://tinyurl.com/2ayr3pcf).

Pfizer obscured the effects of natural immunity (0 severe cases in either trial or placebo groups with previous infection) by combining patients with and without previous infection in their efficacy analysis (ibid.).

The second document dump reveals that Pfizer deliberately did not tell people that in the initial days post shot they were susceptible to infection—not just from COVID—and should not be out and about. Moreover, in calculating efficacy Pfizer attributed infections during the first 14 days to the unvaccinated. Pfizer and government officials knew that failure to account for the period of negative efficacy is fraud (tinyurl.com/yckhx4xf).

It Might Take Just One

From my collection of videos, this one showing a lion attacked by a clan of hyenas (https://tinyurl.com/39r9yj37) is emblematic of sham peer review attacks occurring in hospitals, writes Lawrence Huntoon, M.D., Ph.D. The attackers pounce on the victim from all angles. But, as the attackers bite him repeatedly and tear at his flesh, another of his kind (representing ethical physicians) enters the scene, and the odds change. The video illustrates that sometimes all it takes to save the victim being attacked by sham peer review is a single person to come to his aid. 

Tip of the Month: Increasingly, federal convictions are based on allegations of false statements to federal agents, rather than underlying conduct. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska was a charismatic, popular congressman being investigated for a relatively small $30,000 in campaign contributions, supposedly made illegally by a foreigner. FBI agents from California visited his home as he returned from working to clean up after a big storm. The agents questioned him then and again in a follow-up interview when his attorney was present. Similar contributions by the same foreigner had been made to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign and to other politicians. But only Fortenberry was indicted, and then convicted on Mar 24, based on charges that he allegedly made false statements to the federal agents. And his trial was not in Nebraska but in Los Angeles based on the investigation originating there, even though Fortenberry’s attorney repeatedly objected to that venue. Speaking to a federal agent is not required, and restarts the statute of limitations, so why take the risk of being accused of misstating something? If approached by an agent, you might say: “Submit your questions to me in writing so I can have an attorney review them.” Strongly consider not answering questions orally, and maybe not in writing either.


AAPS Files Amicus in United Airlines Case

United Airlines has required that its employees receive a COVID vaccine or be placed on unpaid leave. It also demoted to unpaid leave employees who obtained a religious exemption. Employees sued in Sambrano v. United Airlines. United lost its appeal, and on March 10 filed an unusual motion to vacate the panel opinion against it, or, in the alternative, rehear it en banc. On the same day, United abruptly announced that it will allow the employees who have religious exemptions to return to work, saying that moots this lawsuit.

In its amicus brief supporting UA employees, AAPS writes: “The panel opinion is a landmark ruling against abuse of power under the pretext of public health, and this splendid opinion should be fully published rather than vacated.”

AAPS counsel Andrew Schlafly calls this one of the “watershed opinions” that “reject exploitation of a crisis to infringe on basic rights.” Instead of being withdrawn, it “should become a foundational precedent against similar future violations of individual rights, particularly the unwanted injection of biological agents that have irreversible life-changing effects.”

“By abruptly reversing its position in this case, United has done the equivalent of a U-turn on the runway and this Court should have a healthy skepticism about its explanation from its cockpit,” states Andrew Schlafly. “Are we taking off or landing?” he asks about United’s odd effort to erase an appellate panel’s opinion while also seeking to get it reconsidered by the full court.

The brief notes that United is heavily dependent on Congress for massive subsidies to the airline industry that totaled $54 billion for COVID prior to this year, and thus United is hardly a mere independently acting “private firm” as it claims.

AAPS writes (https://tinyurl.com/5n8nssvc) that:

Vaccine mandates are an alarming gateway to promote public allowance of abortion (through use of fetal cells in mandated vaccines), infringe on parental rights (the D.C. law at issue in Booth v. Bowser…), violate the patient-physician relationship (by overriding physicians who advise against the vaccine), erode private medicine (by revoking medical licenses of physicians who speak publicly against a mandated vaccine), control the right to assemble (through vaccine passports), and limit the ability to earn a living (as shown in this case). In essence, United booked a ticket on this flight to tyranny, whether intentionally or not. Fortunately, United’s flight landed before its ill-fated destination. Time to deboard….


D.C. Vaccine Mandate Enjoined

 Minors aged 11 and up in Washington, D.C, are temporarily no longer eligible to receive vaccines without parental knowledge or consent after a federal court for the District of Columbia granted a preliminary injunction against the Minor Consent for Vaccination Act (MCA) in Booth v. Bowser, a case brought by Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) (tinyurl.com/ycksus9r).

In an amicus brief, AAPS writes: “The requirement of informed consent is as fundamental to medical ethics as it is to law. A medical procedure without informed consent constitutes battery, and minors are generally incapable of making legal decisions or providing informed consent (tinyurl.com/32mrh59b).

If this Act stands, AAPS argues, “there is no stopping point against future infringements with other medical injections or treatments. The Act is conceptually similar to the notorious mandatory sterilization of a woman a century ago, pursuant to Virginia law, because she was perceived not to be smart enough.”

The AMA’s amicus brief supports mandating the vaccine if authorities were to speculate that its overall good was greater than its overall harm, despite severe individual harm. It fails even to address the possibility of COVID-19 vaccine “harm” to anyone.


A Fraud to Cancel Global Debt?

When COVID hit, Wall Street executive Edward Dowd had been worrying about global debt. “If there’s a sovereign debt bubble, the people who created it were not going to take the blame. So,…would they start a war or something like that? They had to cause some distraction.” COVID could be used as a “system of control to prevent riots when the current bubble pops.” He writes: “If I can show that Pfizer committed fraud, the house of cards has a better chance of coming down.” He observes that Pfizer had failed the all-cause mortality endpoint in clinical trials: 21 in deaths in drug group vs. 17 in placebo. No drug with more deaths than placebo can be approved. Also, a whistleblower showed that 1,000 participants had been unblinded—enough to destroy Pfizer’s claim of 95% efficacy (tinyurl.com/y9e3jruv).


Correspondence

Maybe We Should Consider Risks. After 1,626 cases of myocarditis had been reported, with average onset within two days of receiving a COVID mRNA shot, Matthew Oster of CDC et al. concluded that “this risk should be considered in the context of the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination” (JAMA 1/25/22). The highest rate was in adolescent males following the second shot. Many more cases have surely occurred since August 2021.

Biological Warfare. Those who wanted to wage a biological attack on a population or world should create a vaccine just like the COVID vaccine, one that drives sub-optimal, non-sterilizing, non-neutralizing immunity, and implement roll-out during a raging pandemic. If the aim is to slowly harm the population and kill, not massively at first, but increasingly over time, the COVID vaccine strategy would be quite appropriate.

Government and Private Misconduct. Pharmacologist and ethicist David Gortler exposes unethical and tortious conduct by the FDA, CDC, NIH, and many others in matters of COVID mRNA shot promotion and efficacy/safety data. Because all of the FDA’s 18,000-plus employees had access to the same data we have, he asks: Where are the “Dear Doctor” and “Dear Pharmacist” letters with updated safety data; recommendations for follow-up symptom tracking; and Data Safety Monitoring Board? Is the $6.5 billion dollar funding not enough? “The selective omission of public health information is more than clinical malpractice; it is scientific fraud.” Gortler says that the professional licenses of agency employees should be at risk (https://tinyurl.com/2czwwm68). He links to a list of athlete deaths after mRNA shots. Informed consent is out the window when tyrants are in control, clutching EUAs.

Metamorphosis. In the 1950s, when I entered practice, physicians were independent and paid by their patients. Many facilities as well as physicians provided free care to those unable to pay. During the 1960s, employers’ and government’s “free insurance” programs turned a patient-driven enterprise into an investor-owned and profit-driven business system. As always, bearers of gifts became the masters of those receiving them. Free facilities closed. Medical societies developed a self-serving agenda focused on third-party reimbursement. The physician leadership vacuum was filed by government and the insurance industry. Employed physicians are becoming the sacrificial lambs, and their patients’ services will be rationed.

Scary Thought. Could the Feds take over a state legislature and governorship? It has happened before. When it became clear  that Missouri was going to secede in 1861, as a “slave state,” the Feds came in and chased out the legitimate state government, who had to go into hiding, while the Federals put in a puppet government. I did not learn this in public school; I was taught that Missouri was “neutral.” Far from that! This is the state where brother literally fought with brother, neighbor with neighbor, and with the border war with Kansas still fresh, Missourians fought with Kansas jayhawkers, and grew guerilla fighters from whence came Frank and Jesse James. It can and may well happen again.

AAPS News March 2022 – SOTU, Unity, and War

Share:

Volume 78, no. 3  March 2022

President Biden proclaimed his first State of the Union message to be about setting a “unity agenda” for the nation. The nation is indeed sharply divided—between those standing for freedom and those accepting totalitarian measures on the pretext of fighting a virus. Biden did not acknowledge this state of war on Americans and their guaranteed Constitutional liberties. Instead, he led with the war in Ukraine (https://tinyurl.com/2p8u6x37).

Have our congressional representatives ever before waved  foreign flags at a presidential address? Sen. Chuck Schumer wore a blue jacket with a yellow tie; one woman displayed a Ukrainian blue and yellow scarf. “We stand with Ukraine” is the bipartisan message—without stating just how far that goes, if say a Russian steps one inch over the border of an Article 5 NATO country. Biden promises to defend every square inch of NATO with “the full force of our collective power.” He listed American ground forces, air squadrons, and ship deployments. He did not mention nuclear weapons—but Putin did.

Anyone who dares to disturb unity by raising a question about the Ukrainian narrative is likely to be accused of being pro-Putin—just as those who question the COVID-19 narrative are for disease and death—and is likely to be canceled.

Notably, those who have Ukrainian flags on their Twitter profiles and seem willing to risk war for nationalism, borders, gun rights, civil liberties, and free speech for Ukraine have no problem with sacrificing these things for Americans.

Vladimir Putin has always been an oligarch and ruthless dictator, like so many world leaders. This didn’t seem to bother most Americans during the Obama “reset.” Russophobia was ginned up by Democrats’ and media allegations that Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary  Clinton.

Putin is also a Russian nationalist who opposes Wokeism and its anti-Western civilization, pro-LGBTQ++ ideology.

Americans did not care about Ukraine when Stalin was starving kulaks and seizing their land. Most gave no thought to any of the Captive Nations before the Soviet empire fell, and probably even less to former Warsaw Pact members afterward. Why now?

Is it moral sensibility about a bigger country invading a smaller country, as Kamala Harris explained (tinyurl.com/bdsrr9jd)?

There was no similar, apparently coordinated world outcry over Hong Kong, Yugoslavia, Iraq, or Georgia, and one is unlikely over Taiwan, if China invades that island.

Non-military Coercion

The Biden Administration is relying on economic sanctions. The threat did not deter an invasion, but will increasingly severe pressure cause Russia to surrender? As Biden said, “We are cutting off Russia’s largest banks from the international financial system, preventing Russia’s central bank from defending the Russian ruble.” He boasted that the ruble has already lost 30% percent of its value, and the Russian stock market, 40%.

This economic warfare may inconvenience the oligarchs but will seriously harm the Russian people. If Russia is excluded from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) (https://tinyurl.com/4brv8s4r), retaliation will possibly end the reign of the petrodollar (p 2).

Other Crises

Ukraine has displaced the 24-hour scare coverage of COVID-19, as well as the Pfizer documents revealing the adverse effects of its vaccine. Dr. Anthony Fauci seems to have vanished from the limelight, likely because of polling data showing that Americans are fed up (https://tinyurl.com/bddwm34w). Some mandates are being rolled back, but Biden is not lifting the declaration of emergency or the CMS vaccine mandate. Biden takes credit for an alleged economic recovery, but no responsibility for the destruction, saying that few pieces of legislation had “done more at a critical moment in our history to lift us out of crisis” than his American Rescue Plan. It provided economic relief and “fueled our efforts to vaccinate the nation and combat Covid-19.”

If Congress will just pass his bills, he pleaded, we can revitalize American manufacturing and fight inflation by “lowering costs.” He said we can “cut energy costs for families an average of $500 a year by combating climate change”—another existential crisis, in the name of which, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, Biden  imposes harsher restrictions on American than on Russian oil.

What Are the Two Sides?

“In the battle between democracy and autocracies, democracies are rising to the moment, and the world is clearly choosing the side of peace and security,” Biden said. Or is it the side of a global totalitarian technocracy that rules by fear?

What is Ukraine? A free, independent, prosperous democracy? Or a World Economic Forum/NATO puppet after a NATO-engineered putsch with regime change in 2014 (tinyurl.com/yckpzkr8), and a money-laundering center for corrupt billionaires? Ukrainians have been fleeing since 2014 (tinyurl.com/3xr43snr), becoming low-wage servants to less-impoverished people as in Poland. Heroic Ukrainians are fighting for their homes, but what is the agenda of those who are promoting war?

The real war is against Western civilization, sovereign nations, and self-government that protects individual rights. Watch what the magician’s other hand is doing behind a blue and yellow flag.


Financial Warfare

The Russian convoy slowly approaching Kyiv is getting more mainstream media attention than the truck convoy to Washington, D.C., or the one that converged on Ottawa. The latter is also, although entirely peaceful, deemed a threat to the regime, triggering the Canadian Emergencies Act (formerly the War Measures Act). This forbids participation in, travel to, or hosting on private property assemblies deemed “unlawful.” It also orders financial institutions to cease dealing with anyone involved in funding these protests (https://tinyurl.com/2p8h3764).

While the government is unable to account for $600 billion in public spending, Canada’s deputy prime minister and finance minister Chrystia Freeland can find out who donated $20 to truckers and may freeze their bank accounts. Trudeau’s government has shut down 39 trucking companies in Ontario for participating on the convoy. The names of the companies and proceedings are secret (https://tinyurl.com/2s35vzn3).

Total financial war on Russia has followed Western examples.

Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin was banned from Airbnb for speaking at an American Renaissance conference (tinyurl.com/bdh9z9fe). Less than a month later, all Russians were booted. For years, social media has banned conservative voices; now the whole of Russia is banned. Why can’t Fox News be canceled too? Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal are suspending operations in Russia—are Red States next?

What are the consequences—intended  and unintended—of economic warfare? Is it a great thing to destroy Russia’s economy and impoverish her people? Overnight, Russia’s $630 billion in currency “reserves” were declared worthless. If the dollar is revocable, whether it “belongs” to someone who honked a horn in Ottawa, “enabled” an illegal protest, or is defined as an “oligarch”—or to a bank in a sanctioned country, who will hold American currency (tinyurl.com/mupxk85w)?

The dollar is hardly fighting from a position of strength. Its share of trade settlements between Russia and China slipped from 90% in 2015 to 46% in 2020 (tinyurl.com/2p85ss66). Visa and Mastercard might be replaced with Russia’s Mir system and China’s UnionPay (https://tinyurl.com/2p8fsv4n).

The barrage of sanctions amounts to the “weaponization” of dollar-based money, as described by former Société Générale strategist Dylan Grice: “You only get to play the card once,” he tweeted. “China will make it a priority to need no USD before going for Taiwan. It’s a turning point in monetary history” (https://tinyurl.com/mr3stny9).

As the ruble crashes, what happens to creditors who are paid in rubles (https://tinyurl.com/4fswvkzn), and to American public pension plans, which may be heavily invested in Russia (https://tinyurl.com/3hc4y4xk)?

The collapse of the world banking system’s house of cards might usher in a global digital currency. If people have one digitized account as envisioned by the World Economic Forum, tied to their record of vaccination, travel, and ESG   (environmental, social, and governmental) score, their spending could be minutely controlled, and they could even be depersoned. They will own nothing—and will they be happy?

Not in the News

As of Mar 1, Pfizer has released 150 documents comprising 50,000 pages pertaining to its COVID-19 vaccine—which it had tried to keep secret for 75 years. They are posted at https://phmpt.org/pfizers-documents/. Document 5.3.6, Cumulative Analysis of Post-authorization Adverse Event Reports (https://tinyurl.com/y6z4rvzp), states that there were 42,086 case reports (25,379 medically confirmed and 16,707 non-medically confirmed) containing 158,893 events. An underreporting factor was not calculated but could be as high as 100. Appendix 1 is a 9-page tightly packed list of “adverse events of special interest.” Steve Kirsch in his preliminary analysis (tinyurl.com/3ujdeus8) writes that there is nothing that should surprise those who have read the VAERS reports, but this should be harder to ignore.


Checking Compliance

At the World Economic Forum, Albert Bourla discussed the “first electronic pill” approved by the FDA. It contains an electronic chip that sends a signal once the pill is dissolved in the stomach so that one knows the patient has taken the drug (tinyurl.com/m68a6j9j). Much more reliable than pill counting!


Who’s Who

Albert Bourla, D.V.M., holds a Ph.D. in the biotechnology of reproduction, worked with Pfizer for 25 years, holding many senior global positions, and became CEO in 2019. He is an agenda contributor to the World Economic Forum.

Chrystia Freeland is keeping some bank accounts frozen even after Trudeau lifted the Emergencies Act.  For years, she misled Canadians about her Ukrainian grandfather’s work as a Nazi propagandist. In 2014, while working in Moscow as a financial journalist, she was blacklisted for advocating western sanctions against Russia. Since 2019, she has been a member of the board of trustees of the World Economic Forum, and she is working on an authorized biography of George Soros (tinyurl.com/2p938da6).

Volodymyr Zelenskyy was elected president of Ukraine in a landslide victory in 2019, on a promise to ease tensions with Russia. He is lionized by the international press as a fearless hero fighting for democracy, but some call him a NATO puppet and note that tensions with Russia have only worsened steadily (tinyurl.com/5a4uwrbr). He admires Justin Trudeau (tinyurl.com/yckjh3brand). Zelenskyy proposed that the WEF become a stakeholder in the “new Ukraine” (tinyurl.com/3hnvxnsb). Republicans are attacking Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) for calling Zelensky a “thug” and the Ukraine regime “evil” and “corrupt” (tinyurl.com/2p92cyxm).

‘Emergencies’ and the Rule of Law

In a remarkable coincidence, as the rationale for the emergency powers to fight the COVID-19 pandemic started to wane, the government started pushing for confrontation with Russia and assuming war powers. Tucker Carlson noted that Biden immediately declared total economic war on Russia without pausing for public debate or congressional authorization. After destroying the ruble, he began seizing the private property of persons affiliated with that country without a trial or due process of any kind, or naming the crime that had supposedly been committed. This is unprecedented; the U.S. has always stood for the rule of law.

Instead of worrying about being declared an enemy of the state and having their bank account confiscated, Americans are only thinking about Ukraine. The other unprecedented development, Carlson stated, is the control that the tech monopoly exerts over Americans’ emotions. They are changing their social media avatars from BLM signs or mask-up slogans to Ukrainian flags.

One topic cannot be hidden: inflation. Biden denies that government spending has anything to do with it, but Carlson recalls that in the 2008 financial crisis the government assumed emergency powers to “save the economy”—with measures that have continued for 14 years. The Fed being out of tricks, as the allegedly roaring economy is based on asset inflation, not production, government is trying two measures: denying that it is happening, and blaming someone else: Vladimir Putin. [Note: U.S. inflation is more than twice as severe as in peer European countries.]

Attacking and destabilizing the global financial system will destroy the U.S.—not Putin. When the fog clears, the response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will be seen as the most destructive thing a President has ever done to America—and to the world, says Carlson (https://tinyurl.com/5n8smesz). Worse than the response to COVID-19?


Tip of the Month: Surprise office visits by a government agent are rare, but sometimes happen. It is important that you or your staff first verify the visitor’s identity by requesting a business card. Then it is typically unwise to answer questions without invoking your right to have an attorney present for you. One effective approach is to ask the visitor to email you any questions so that you can review and respond to them thoroughly at a more convenient time. The government agent will be insistent on asking “just a few questions” immediately, but be aware that innocent people are prosecuted merely for supposedly misleading a federal agent. There is no obligation to answer questions by an investigator, particularly someone who failed to schedule an appointment.


Doctors Sue California over Assisted Suicide

Legislation permitting assisted suicide, passed in 2016, promised an opt out for conscientious objection. But the amended law, SB 380, signed last fall,  while claiming that “participating” in assisted suicide is “voluntary,” defines “participation” very narrowly. Physicians could be liable for civil, criminal, administrative, or other penalty for refusal to take steps that authorize intentional killing. The Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CMDA) have filed a lawsuit requesting injunctive relief from SB 380’s provisions that violate medical professionals’ right to refrain from speech or action to assist intentional death (tinyurl.com/2p86xb33).


Information and Culture Wars

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been collecting COVID data for 2 years, with specific information on age, sex, vaccination status, race, hospitalizations, and deaths, but has been deliberately withholding it from the public. When it finally did release some data in February, it withheld figures on the effectiveness of boosters in 18–49-year-olds.

CDC cited “fear that the information might be misinterpreted”—for example, as showing “the vaccines being ineffective.” As Samuel Scarpino of the Rockefeller Foundation’s Pandemic Prevention Institute noted: “The CDC is a political organization as much as it is a public health organization.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics got an answer on the length of disease infectiousness from the New York Times. “[CDC has] known the answer for a year and a half, right, and they have not told us…. You can’t find out anything from them (NYT 2/21/22, https://tinyurl.com/2zxj2vps).

“By deliberately withholding data that did not support the government-approved narrative, and simply continuing with the mantra of wear masks and get vaccinated, the CDC has been one of the premier spreaders of true misinformation,” writes AAPS past president Lawrence R. Huntoon, M.D., Ph.D.

From CDC data, equity investment advisor Edward Dowd calculates that Millennials, age 25 to 40, experienced an 84% excess mortality in the fall of 2021, coinciding with vaccine mandates and boosters—a Vietnam War-size event. Dowd also examined the Pfizer clinical trial data obtained by whistleblower Brook Jackson, concluding that the data and the attempt to hide it “point to clinical fraud”  (https://tinyurl.com/2vkbph32).

The Defense Medical Epidemiological Database (DMED) has shown a startling increase in conditions that have been observed to be adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccines, but not in other conditions such as trauma. Because the information was widely shared, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the NIH must have known about it. Yet there was no mention of it until whistleblowers Samuel Sigoloff, Peter Chambers, and Theresa Long released unclassified raw data (https://tinyurl.com/24dd6ea3).

Only now has the Defense Health Agency’s Armed Forces Surveillance Division reviewed data in the DMED “and found that the data was incorrect for the years 2016-2020.”

Compared with 2020, reports of nervous system diseases, for example, are up by 968% in 2021, Guillain-Barré syndrome up 520%, and myocarditis up 184% (tinyurl.com/3xzk929c).

Just as with the war in Ukraine, there is an information war on the COVID front, with intelligence and counter-intelligence, psy-ops, censorship, and breakdown of the rule of law. What is the role of our once-trusted agencies and institutions: FBI, CIA, Dept. of Defense, CDC, NIH, FDA, organized medicine, and our once-great universities? Where do all parties stand on culture and governance? Are they for traditional Western civilization and ethics, or for radical Wokeism? For limited government and respect for inalienable individual rights, or for a totalitarian technocracy in the name of safety and security?

COVID-19 has allegedly claimed 9 million victims in the U.S. alone. How many were lost to the lockdowns or to vaccines—or to treatment denied? Was there mere incompetence—or also intent, and thus criminal liability? Are innocent people dying in Ukraine or from COVID measures due to a hidden agenda?

Denial at the CDC. There have been 57 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis following COVID-19 vaccination. The two boys cited in this article (tinyurl.com/vh24fe3u) were autopsy-proven cases of fatal myocarditis a few days following vaccination. Both were healthy before getting the shot. How can a CDC spokesman tell the Epoch Times that “we don’t have any confirmed deaths from myocarditis suffered post-vaccination at this time.”

Heart Damage. As of Jan 16 there were 463 athlete cardiac arrests, with 263 dead, post COVID vaccine. The media pretends that this is not happening. There is no such thing as “mild” myocarditis. The heart muscle cells that die are not replenished, and the heart is scarred long-term.

The Status of Physicians. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that if you are a private citizen, working for a private company, it is unconstitutional for you to have a medical treatment forced upon you.  But if you are a medical worker, you do not have that same protection. The cancer of Medicare/Medicaid that our profession allowed to metastasize throughout virtually all of medicine has now begun to actively consume us. It apparent that the COVID panic/reaction was about population control, not keeping people healthy, and that the public health apparatus views patient and physician autonomy as dispensable as the truth.

The decision is based on false information. Why should we believe any claims from the factory that has produced an unbroken string of failure and lies? It is not about “saving lives,” but rather using the bodies of subject workers to offer to the public as trophies in the unending War on COVID. We are the servant class, not to be trusted or respected, and our value lies only in our obedience. We are living in a 1984 state of medicine.

Get Prepared. The sanctions on Russia might have only a modest impact there, especially if China does not join them. But Americans had better prepare. Lumber, petroleum, precious metals, iron, and cereal are all going to be affected by supply disruptions traceable to Russia or Ukraine. Do not rely on the legacy media to tell you what to think and how to respond. They cannot be trusted to tell the truth. They will spin everything and say whatever the government (or the World Economic Forum) wants them to say (https://tinyurl.com/3pz5red4).

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid. Recent actions of the Canadian government show that it is concerned only about protests against its policies, not about COVID-19. Justice Minister David Lametti dodged questions about the terms and conditions the government is using to instruct financial institutions, but finally, after equating the Trudeau order to the same principles around terrorism, he said: “If you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to this kind of thing, then you ought to be worried” (tinyurl.com/mr36uz3a). Canada’s dragnet will encompass every part of the financial system (including securities dealers) in order to cut off the truckers from funding. Trudeau has been accused of almost  crashing the Canadian economy of banking, insurance, and real estate, single-handedly in just a few days.

The Great Reset. Diverse sources (tinyurl.com/5n7y82vz, tinyurl.com/2p8rvdd2, tinyurl.com/5a3w46hv) lead to the conclusion that the Great Reset is the over-arching background within which vaccine and other mandates must be understood. Historic de facto dismissal of foundational personal rights and draconian control of dissent and resistance are embedded into the entire pandemic response and utilize the pandemic itself as a tool or weapon to seize autocratic power. Big Government, Big Tech, Big Finance, Big Pharma, and even organized medicine are either purposefully, or unwittingly caught into the web of deception and  are complicit in allowing this all to happen.

Genetic Targeting? From a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis: The FDA should be aware of the racial specificity of the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 as potentially or actually causing racially specific harm…. The spike protein…involves both furin and TMPRSS2 protease cleavage sites. Both…seem to be preferentially found in black, brown and Native American populations…. [Also,]…the specific ACE2 receptor binding domain (RBD)…attracts black, brown, and Native American…ACE2 receptors but repels the ACE2 receptors of K26R found in [certain] others.

These findings suggest that not only should the Pfizer vaccine not be approved for young children but that the Pfizer vaccine stop being mandated in anyone until racially specific short-term and long-term damage may be elucidated utilizing computer modeling rather than human experimentation…. Please consider asking companies or intelligence units that have done computer modeling of the spike protein…[to] turn over their data to the FDA and unbiased physicians and others for review.

AAPS News February 2022 – If You Take Their Money….

Share:

Volume 78, no. 2  February 2022

The U.S. Supreme Court split the baby on the vaccine mandates cases. In both, the key issue is the power of the administrative state to force people to accept an unwanted and potentially harmful medical intervention as a condition of employment. The stay on the OSHA mandate on employers of 100 or more workers to enforce vaccination or weekly testing was upheld while the CMS mandate on healthcare workers at Medicare- and Medicaid-certified facilities and suppliers (other than physicians’ offices) was allowed to be enforced immediately. Why the difference?

The Court stated that CMS has long imposed conditions on funding, including the protection of the health and safety of beneficiaries as the Secretary determines appropriate. But the government has less power over workers paid by private industry.

In the 1950s, the debate was over federal aid to education. My sage 7th grade math teacher, W.R. Keith (WoRK), told my mother, “If you take their money, they’ll tell you how wide to make the door.” And eventually, as he probably could not imagine, tell you to teach the children that they are an oppressor or victim based on skin color, that they can and possibly should change their sex, and that there are no right or wrong answers to math problems.

The decision on the CMS mandate implies that the federal government thinks that it owns workers paid with federal money and can demand that they take a product with no long-term safety data, unprecedented numbers of reports of adverse effects including death or permanent disability (which the Court did not even consider), disregard for natural immunity, and no evidence that it reduces workplace transmission of disease.

As Justice Thomas wrote in his dissent, “These cases are not about the efficacy or importance of COVID–19 vaccines. They are only about whether CMS has the statutory authority to force healthcare workers, by coercing their employers, to undergo a medical procedure they do not want and cannot undo.” We presume, he states, that Congress does not hide “fundamental details of a regulatory scheme in vague or ancillary provisions.”

Justice Alito, also dissenting, wrote: “Today, however, most federal law is not made by Congress. It comes in the form of rules issued by unelected administrators. In order to give individuals and entities who may be seriously impacted by agency rules at least some opportunity to make their views heard and to have them given serious consideration, Congress has clearly required that agencies comply with basic procedural safeguards…. In these cases, the relevant agency did none of those things, and the Court rewards this extraordinary departure from ordinary principles of administrative procedure (https://tinyurl.com/ycku3fsy).

In the per curium ruling, the Court admitted that promises made by President Lyndon Johnson are null and void: “Lastly, the rule does not run afoul of the directive in §1395 that federal officials may not ‘exercise any supervision or control over the… manner in which medical services are provided, or over the selection [or] tenure…of any officer or employee of’ any facility. That reading of section 1395 would mean that nearly every condition of participation the Secretary has long insisted upon is unlawful.”

As indeed it is.

The Impact on Medicine

AAPS surveys have long predicted an exodus of physicians. In 2003, 62% of respondents said they planned to retire at an earlier age than expected 5 years previously, citing “increased government interference,” followed by “increased regulatory burden.” Money ranked number six. (https://tinyurl.com/5v8yf9zz).

The AMA is now talking about the “great resignation,” stating that “one in five physicians say it is likely they will leave their current practice within two years” (tinyurl.com/2p89uz48). It suggests “making employees feel valued,” with no mention of mandates or Medicare constraints and threats.

The COVID vaccine mandate could cause the British National Health Service to lose 6% of its workforce or 80,000 workers (https://tinyurl.com/musa6nby).

As Lee Beecher, M.D., points out, mandates make the jobs of  medical workers even less desirable. We can expect the quality of workers as a group to keep decreasing. Intelligent young people will try to avoid this career path even more than now. 

The Only Escape

Short of death or abandoning their profession, the last option physicians have, to avoid constant pandering to their owners, is to opt out of federal programs. “There’s only one ethical ‘single payer,’ here or abroad,” writes a Minnesota internist, “our next patient!” Government is the problem, never the answer.

Some are building a parallel private system, and there is a desperate need for facilities willing to offer COVID-19 treatment outside the Fauci/NIH lockstep protocol that is apparently de rigueur (with positive and negative “incentives,” https://tinyurl.com/3zt3bu3f) in almost all American hospitals. There should be many physicians and nurses available to staff it.

It is human nature to endure adverse circumstances, as most Jewish physicians did in Nazi Germany, hoping they will be temporary. It’s as described in a horrifying clip from The Silence of the Lambs (https://tinyurl.com/mud5hw63). Clarice opened the gate to the pen. The lambs who were about to be slaughtered could have run—but didn’t.

We must nonetheless try to save as many as we can.


Vaccination Data

150,000. After a judge ruled that FDA and Pfizer would have to answer their FOIA requests over a few months, not 55 to 75 years, Pfizer’s “Cumulative Analysis of Post-authorization Adverse Event Reports” reveals that it received more than 150,000 serious adverse event reports within 3 months of rolling out its COVID shot (https://tinyurl.com/562d7mxx).

10 Red Flags. FDA’s risk-benefit analysis of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine in children aged 5–11 is “shoddy” and “used tortured logic (that would be rejected by any proper academic journal) in order to reach a predetermined result that is not based in science,” writes Toby Rogers (https://tinyurl.com/2p8ane8x).

NNTV = 915,641. Using Pfizer and CDC data, the number of children needed to be vaccinated to avert a single COVID death is 915,641, or 1,831,282 per injection (tinyurl.com/bd86hm34).

50:50? Is it a pandemic of the unvaccinated? Some say it’s 50:50; some say spread is worse from the vaccinated, writes Dr. Paul Alexander (tinyurl.com/25xatzuy). The CDC identifies four of the top five U.S. counties with the highest percentage of fully vaccinated population (99.9–84.3%) as “high” transmission counties (https://tinyurl.com/4nvmt8n7).

500,000 Deaths/year. This mortality from tobacco use is not a high enough threshold to trigger a compelling government interest  in meaningfully curtailing use (https://tinyurl.com/bp7857n4).

150 Times. The mortality from COVID injections appears to be more than 150 times the rate of 0.8 deaths/million doses of smallpox vaccine, one of several ways in which mandates fail the Jacobson test, write Harvey Risch and Gerard Bradley (ibid.).

30,000 Menstrual Irregularities. Although no menstrual problems have been acknowledged as a potential side effect, the UK flag system has >30,000 reports (tinyurl.com/4x2cbwk2).


International Dispatches

Germany. A nurse being fired for declining the jab states that there are hardly any COVID patients in a large Berlin hospital, but many young patients in the cardiac unit (tinyurl.com/2p8p7nkt).

UK. Official guidance has been published on “rare” post-jab myocarditis. “Where appropriate the patient should be seen face to face and this assessment should include their vital signs.” A cardiac MRI may be indicated (https://tinyurl.com/y3etdszy).

EU. President Ursula von der Leyen, “one of those figures most people have never heard of but who decides everything that matters,” called for the compulsory vaccination of half-a-billion people and the dumping of the Nuremberg Code on medical experimentation,  writes Mark Steyn (tinyurl.com/5xuucwu3).

Global. “Build back better” (https://tinyurl.com/2vyczd9r).


“When we renounce the self and become part of a compact whole, we not only renounce personal advantage but are also rid of personal responsibility. There is no telling to what extremes of cruelty and ruthlessness a man will go when he is freed from the fears, hesitations, doubts and the vague stirrings of decency that go with individual judgment. When we lose our individual independence in the corporateness of a mass movement, we find a new freedom—freedom to hate, bully, lie, torture, murder and betray without shame and remorse.”

FDA-Authorized or Approved COVID Drugs

Remdesivir (Veklury™). Fauci’s “standard of care” is now approved for out-patient use also. See NIH Table 2f for comparisons with non-approved drugs (tinyurl.com/pf63p2t2). WHO recommends against its use (tinyurl.com/ytv6sdcw). The risk of  acute renal failure is 14 times the expected rate (https://tinyurl.com/ycktkavw).

Baricitinib (Olumiant™). Available under EUA for oxygen-requiring patients, it has a black-box warning for causing blood clots (https://tinyurl.com/46yukfz8).

Tofacitinib (Xeljanz™). This Janus kinase inhibitor, found to have unclear efficacy in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 pneumonia (tinyurl.com/yckhjje9), has a black-box warning for “serious infections and malignancy” (tinyurl.com/mr248xt4).

Paxlovid™. Pfizer’s touted “wonder drug” is a combination of    a  protease inhibitor and the HIV drug ritonavir, which is needed to prevent its rapid breakdown but has many serious adverse effects (tinyurl.com/45dhu98t). Ivermectin, Daniel Horowitz points out, is a far more effective protease inhibitor and has 19 additional mechanisms of action (tinyurl.com/ydzmuyef).

Molnupiravir. Merck’s nucleoside analog was abandoned as an  influenza treatment because of its mutagenic action and the risk of mutant viruses.  Even the FDA advisory committee admitted that the drug poses a risk of birth defects (ibid.).

FDA is at least acknowledging the need for early treatment, but despite the dubious effectiveness and poor safety of its green-lighted products, the war against long-approved drugs, and the doctors who prescribe them, continues (tinyurl.com/2s46a28k).


It’s about the Money

It’s not about ivermectin, writes Beth Brelie. “It’s about what COVID-19 exposed in America’s health care system. The federal government, pharmaceutical, and insurance companies hold the reins on what care hospital administrators can offer. They never looked at your chart, but have a say in your treatment, and doctors who stray from administrative protocol can kiss their careers goodbye.” Culprits include the shortfalls in Medicare and Medicaid payments; the medical-loss-ratio provision in the Affordable Care Act; Accountable  Care Organizations and Pay for Performance, which require matching diagnosis and treatment codes in the electronic record; and quality improvement organizations that assign the equivalent of a social credit score. For 15 years, “doctors have been unable to think on their own.” Even what they must study for continuing medical education is determined (tinyurl.com/3w6f8tav).

Flashback

In 1974, in AAPS v. Weinberger, which challenged Professional Standards Review Organizations, government attorneys argued:  “Patients whose medical care is provided by public funds have no constitutional right to whatever care [their physicians] using the “highest standards of medical practice” … may “judge necessary” … or to obtain that care “from a physician *** of their choice” [emphasis added]. Moreover, they stated that “Congress need not agree to pay for whatever care appellants desire to provide” and can, §1801 notwithstanding, “influence both the standard of care and the identity of its provider by prior review no less than by review designed to achieve the same purpose” (https://tinyurl.com/33w5af7j). The Supreme Court declined an appeal.


AMA Strives to ‘Cement ACA’s Success’

Thrilled about the Affordable Care Act’s “legal status affirmed by three Supreme Court decisions,” AMA president Gerald E. Harmon, M.D., writes that further refinements will enable ACA to “fulfill its mandate” to get all Americans covered. He credits AMA’s Voice for the Uninsured campaign, launched in 2007, with building momentum that culminated in the adoption of the ACA just a few years later (tinyurl.com/yj78nvjd). Medical practice independent of control by the government/insurance/pharmaceutical/hospital complex  becomes rarer still.

The latest case, brought by Texas and others (tinyurl.com/mrxz97ux), was dismissed for lack of standing without considering any of the substantial  issues (tinyurl.com/n87vtka4).


SCOTUS Absent on Individual Rights

The Supreme Court’s decisions on both OSHA and CMS mandates were also based on narrow technical grounds, with no findings of fact, no reference to Jacobson, and no reference to individual rights. Apparently, both sides agree that “experts” should decide health questions, but differ on which experts or which level of government should be involved. “Nothing in the Constitution supports this approach,” writes Toby Rogers. “The Constitution did not envision a society of technocrats making decisions on behalf of society. The founders were well aware of the fact that power corrupts everyone and so they returned decision-making on matters of fact to ordinary citizens” (tinyurl.com/2yf7xuxa).


Hospitals Block 90% of IVM Legal Actions

In the past year there have been more than 100 court cases trying to get access to ivermectin for very ill patients believed to have little chance of surviving. Only about 10% of these legal actions have been successful.  Hospitals file endless motions and sometimes go to appeals courts to defeat or at least delay favorable decisions until the deathbed patient succumbs—despite evidence that IVM sometimes saves patients even very late in the course of the disease. Joel Hirschhorn reviews cases from several states, concluding that the only consistency is that hospitals invariably fight all attempts and are totally on the side of government agencies.  Most judges are stubbornly wed to the idea that hospitals know what works best, despite the very high death rate of  late-stage COVID patients on their protocol  (tinyurl.com/yrytne89).


They’ve Got a Little List

If you apply for a religious exemption to the COVID vaccine,  which may be the only way to avoid it if you want to keep your job, you are likely to be on a list. Some 25 federal agencies are actively tracking religious exemption requests from employees of federal agencies along with any contractors, consultants, interns, and volunteers associated with them. Notices of the new tracking system were only made public in the Federal Register. The Department of Transportation’s database, in particular, became effective on the day it was published, with no opportunity for public comment (https://tinyurl.com/y4fuvswc).

If you request free home test kits, your information will be used to provide company and product fulfillment information about that testing kit to a federal executive agency. Collection is authorized by 39 U.S.C. 401, 403, 404, and 411. Information may be disclosed as required by law, e.g., “to government agencies in connection with decisions as necessary” (tinyurl.com/3s7c8yam).


Tip of the Month: We are hearing frightening reports of what happens when a COVID patient is admitted to a hospital.  A hospital may claim that the patient is unable to make medical decisions for himself, and then deny visitation by family while the hospital makes improper decisions to further its own agenda. To overcome this, everyone should designate in writing a trusted person to hold the medical power of attorney, also called an advance directive. Rather than attempt to specify all treatment instructions, which a hostile hospital or court can misinterpret, the better approach is usually to designate a trusted person who knows what the patient would want. Listing only one person, and then a successor person if the first designee is unavailable, might be best. Then the hospital, when presented with that document, should abide by the person’s decisions. States vary in their requirements of what should be in the document, so it is best to check online about your own state.


Criminal Investigation Opened

On Dec 20, 2021, a group of activists and law firms lodged  complaints against UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), according to Unity News Network (UNN), which was founded in 2018 as “an alternative to the old media in the UK” (https://tinyurl.com/mpecf43r). The complaints allege numerous serious crimes including misfeasance and misconduct in public office, which are the subject of Metropolitan Police Crime Number 6029679/21 and International Criminal Court (The Hague) case number OTP‐CR‐473/21.


Canadian Physician Detained, Drugged

Dr. Mel Bruchet, an 81-year-old retired family physician, was taken from his home in handcuffs, detained in a psychiatric hospital, and forcibly medicated with antipsychotics. He had called attention to an increase in stillbirths in British Columbia in COVID-vaccinated mothers, spoken out about the blocking of ivermectin, and together with Dr. Daniel Nagase filed complaints against the Executive Board of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia alleging financial conflicts of interest. He was interviewed by Sam Dubé (https://tinyurl.com/3jm35mw7).

Another Mandate Blocked. The Biden Administration suffered another setback on Jan 21 when U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown ruled that the jab-or-no-job mandate for federal employees was “overbroad,” noting that even full-time remote workers were not exempt (tinyurl.com/2p867269). Like hospitals that conduct sham peer review and ruin physicians’ careers and reputations, authoritarians always appeal. As the Wall Street Journal points out, with 98% of federal workers already vaccinated, Biden’s appeal seems to be “more about punishing than protecting people.” Perhaps Biden refuses to back down despite legal defeat because mandates and coercion are popular with progressive voters. A Rasmussen poll reports that 59% of Democrat voters would support confining the unvaccinated to their homes, and nearly half also thought the government should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of vaccines on social media (WSJ Jan 22-23, 2022). Nikita Khrushchev predicted in 1959 that “your children’s children will live under Communism.” He may be proved correct.

Hospital Care Disaster. Ohio Governor DeWine has deployed additional National Guard members as a response to shortages of health workers, especially nurses, in a COVID-19 surge, bringing the total to 2,300. Qualified skilled professionals are being removed and replaced with clueless, untrained big-government national guards. I am witnessing this all first-hand; it is worse than a third-world country! The nurses are all outsourced and do 12-hour shifts and are off to another state the next day. All patients are highly endangered by the substandard care.

 While hospitals still are not allowing loved ones in to see patients, there is something that might be done. Each hospital has to have an R.N. patient advocate who can get people ADA Life Partner Status and bypass the nonsense. They can get one-on-one contact access any time, any day, even if COVID lockdown mandates and no-visiting policies are being enforced. The Americans with Disabilities Act is federal, so it overrides state laws everywhere. Usually the nurse advocate will inform the patients’ doctors that patients want to be with their loved ones. It goes as an order in the patients’ medical record. ADA Contacts are to stay in the rooms with the patients. See, for example, https://tinyurl.com/2vy435p2.

I have witnessed many cases of ADA violations, especially in prisons and jails; cases can be won. §504 of the Rehabilitation Act and §1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also apply.

Facebook Censors BMJ. The actions of Facebook, Twitter, CNN, et al., are not much different from those of the Chinese Communist Party apparatus. Censorship is tolerance. Bias is  equality. Zuckerspeak is diversity. Unauthorized truth is hate. Why did nothing get done when Republicans might have acted?

BMJ’s report, “Covid-19: Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial,” calls into question the “science” behind Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. Because the report does not unquestioningly praise the jabs as “safe and effective,” Facebook “fact-checked” it and deemed it as containing “false information” (tinyurl.com/2bc6x88k).

CDC Misconduct. I have personal knowledge of many non-forthcoming actions by the CDC, comparable to what a former director told me about refusal to discontinue a narrative about AIDS prevention that they knew to be false but believed had to be maintained to avert a perceived negative. Especially egregious is an MMWR article that cleverly manipulates and obfuscates data to appear to support the position that naturally immune people should be vaccinated. Attorneys have threatened to file a formal complaint and “hold the authors of this study individually accountable for the deprivation of millions of Americans of their rights, including a number of previously infected individuals whose employers directly relied on this deceptive study to terminate their employment” (tinyurl.com/nhavb98j).

True Believers’ Self-Justification. The pathological mechanism of projection prevails among leftists. As Victor Davis Hanson notes, the privileged damn privilege, colluders invent collusion, deniers scream denialist, and racists cry racism (tinyurl.com/muup5ys9). True believers see malice and evil in others who  disagree, causing the current severe polarization.

AAPS News January 2022 – Overcoming the Great Divide

Share:

Volume 78, no. 1  January 2022

It is clear that America is more divided than even before the War Between the States. The Union and the Confederacy had a common language, common fundamental principles, and constitutions that were alike in most respects. They believed in the existence of right and wrong, good and evil. They differed on one issue that split the country apart and set brother against brother.

After the great bloodshed, the nation came together, and now virtually everyone would claim to agree that slavery is evil, that it is wrong for one person to own another, and that no one race is superior or has more rights than another.

Today’s great divide is not cleanly geographic. It is not accurately characterized as pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump, Democrat vs. Republican, conservative vs. liberal. It is certainly not the bourgeoisie vs. the proletariat or capital vs. labor as the Marxists classically portrayed it. With increasingly aggressive efforts to create enmity between “Us” and “Them,” we need to define these terms.

The Global Elite

The COVID-19 pandemic has starkly separated us. Millions had their lives turned upside down, but others kept getting their  paychecks, or profited. Mandates are rewarding the compliant and punishing the independent-minded. The cancel culture is destroying reputations and careers of dissenters while hailing the promoters of FDA/CDC/NIH/HHS/Pfizer et al. COVID-19 protocols.

The same culturally dominant forces are also (coincidentally?) imposing Critical Race Theory, approval of or applause for the LGBTQxxx agenda, support for the most important or only right (abortion), and acceptance of politically correct lawlessness.

The results are appalling. The pandemic may by now be the longest plague in history. The middle class is being destroyed; hundreds or thousands have probably died unnecessarily; and medical services are seriously damaged by the Great Resignation. Simultaneously, those who hold traditional Western values and defend the Bill of Rights are marginalized as “bigots” or even “domestic terrorists” by the self-designated “mainstream.”

As has been true throughout history—with a few exceptions such as the early days of the American Republic, the two classes have been the rulers and the subjects. The rulers were previously identifiable. But the Hapsburgs, Hohenzollerns, and Romanovs are gone, and British royalty appears to be theater. Are American elected officials in charge? Joe Biden? Donald Trump? He caused great consternation in the Deep State but was constantly thwarted, and most of his policies have already been erased. Does Congress represent the electorate—or donors? And who are they?

If America is to be re-founded (AAPS News, July 2021), we need to know who “we” are, and who “they” are. Who is the foe?

Who are our few principled friends? Who are the opportunists, serving the perceived winners in their own self-interest? They may pose as friends but have struck a Faustian bargain that always ends in the same way—after many innocent people are harmed. Against a determined foe, the noble libertarian “live and let live” principle is as relevant as with predator and prey.

Could the chaos, divisiveness, economic carnage, and destruction of civil liberty wrought by lockstep COVID-19 policies in America, Europe, Canada, and Australia be a result sought by the real global rulers in the Great Reset strategy (AAPS News, November 2020 and October 2021)—unopposed by “friends”?

In their book COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We Are the Prey, reviewed by Dr. Marilyn Singleton, Peter Breggin, M.D., and Ginger Breggin conclude from vast research that “by a simple declaration of its own, a small group of individuals led by Bill Gates establishes a new world governance with which to deal with pandemics, thereby ultimately creating an authority that can bulldoze civilization in the service of its global predatory ambitions.”

Anthony Fauci, M.D., chief White House medical adviser and reputedly “America’s Doctor,” is the most prominent face of the coalition of forces described in The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: “intelligence agencies, pharmaceutical companies, social media titans, medical bureaucracies, mainstream media and the military—that are using a health crisis to impose totalitarian control worldwide.” Kennedy concludes that the “Robber Barons” won in the war of COVID, and that “we have to love our freedom more than we fear a germ.” Roger Kimball comments that the book is part of  a “reshuffling of seemingly settled ideological alliances” (https://tinyurl.com/ychrbuus).

Unrestricted Warfare

Are the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the genetically engineered jabs, or both, a Chinese Communist Party biowarfare program designed to “clear the field” of Americans (https://tinyurl.com/3myj3dfw)? Is the phenomenon of 20–30% of the population in the western world becoming entranced with the Noble Lies and dominant narrative a mass formation psychosis, asks Robert Malone, M.D., citing work of Dr. Mattias Desmet (tinyurl.com/5n7ee23u)?

Who Are “We the People”?

Forces are acting, whether separately or in concert, that could destroy our America. They are ruthless and full of guile. We need to recognize allies, friends, collaborators, traitors, opportunists, misguided distractions, and the Enemy by what they do or say—and, as importantly, by what they do NOT do or say.


Acts and Omissions

FDA. The Food and Drug Administration has slow-walked  promising therapies such as favipiravir and aviptadil, while rushing authorization of novel gene-therapy “vaccines”; discouraged or suppressed “off-label” use of long-approved drugs, and reportedly is seizing imported ivermectin (https://tinyurl.com/2jhb8jr3); attempted to make potentially helpful, widely used over-the-counter products such as N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) unavailable.

Conservatism, Inc. What have chambers of commerce, the Republican Party, and conservative entities  done about COVID lockdowns, deference to Fauci et al., the Warp Speed mass vaccination experiment, the war against life-saving treatment, rioting in 100 cities, and pervasive Wokeism? How much better off would we be if the same-old GOP regime comes back to power (https://tinyurl.com/32kkz5p3)?


Patents

Since coronaviruses are problematic for  humans and animals, and people saw profit in developing remedies against them, they have been widely studied. Military strategists all over the world saw them as a potential weapon, but this does not negate the boring possibility that the mundane cold virus evolved on its own to a more virulent one and that this spontaneous event was used by Dark Forces as an excuse for their sinister plans. It is perplexing that anyone would patent a bioweapon, since this is not a good way to keep such a weapon secret.

A study by Liu et al. of the global landscape, involving 16,605 coronavirus-related patent documents (tinyurl.com/2p95ky7s), is said to form “a strong intellectual groundwork for the ongoing development of therapeutic agents and vaccines.”

The first coronavirus patent was granted in 1974. With the emergence of SARS-CoV, the number of patent documents increased rapidly from 2002–2006, plateaued 2006–2019, and peaked in 2020. Academia and government have played an increasing role. Strong collaborative international relationships are diagrammed in the article. China and the U.S. are major but not the only players. The top assignee, the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, “shows the military’s growing role in medical research in China, and partnerships between China’s People’s Liberation Army and medical-science companies.”


‘New Normal’ Totalitarianism

 Classic totalitarian features—e.g. revocation of basic rights, centralization of power, rule by decree, oppressive policing,   censorship,  etc.—are impossible to hide, but are recontextualized in a pathologized official narrative. The Untermenschen become “the Unvaccinated.” Swastika lapel pins become masks. Aryan ID papers become “vaccination passes.” Senseless social restrictions and public-obedience rituals become health protection measures. The world is entangled in a total war against an internal, pathological enemy. The entire global-capitalist apparatus has been put into service to achieve the objective of totalitarian control in the name of health (https://tinyurl.com/4vjzh83a).


“It is usually futile to talk facts…to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance.”

—Thomas Sowell


Left vs. Right

The sharp ideological divide, often characterized inaccurately,  has been meticulously defined by actuary Gerry Smedinghoff (https://aapsonline.org/leftvsright.pdf). Some highlights:

Foundation: political tactics (left) vs. philosophical principles (right)

Outlook: secular, materialistic vs. philosophical, religious

Faith: evolutionary progress of man vs. universal power, order, and justice of a deity

Human nature: can be molded and changed by force vs. defined by original sin and unchangeable

Operating objective: undermine, attack, and destroy vs. build, defend, and preserve

Goverance: centralized control vs. decentralization, subsidiarity

Morality: value free vs. clear standards of right and wrong

Tragedy of man: indecision vs. hubris

Rights: apply differently by class with proliferation of protected classes vs. same for all regardless of outcome

Economic value of humans: liability vs. asset

Terror: celebrate as instrument of public policy vs. view as shameful with need for repentance


COVID Vaccination Updates

Reproductive Health. In Waterloo, Ontario, 86 stillbirths, all in vaccinated women, were reported between January and July; there are normally five or six per year (tinyurl.com/2p85wbsm). In vitro fertilization clinics noticed problems starting with vaccine rollouts. Among other adverse events, the miscarriage rate jumped from 28% to 40%. The clinics do not track vaccination status (https://tinyurl.com/yckm4phc).

Epidemic Cardiovascular Death. In the UK, up to 300,000 British citizens are facing sudden heart-related illness and cardiac arrest. Medical experts are blaming PPSD (post-pandemic stress disorder). ERs and ICUs are overwhelmed. It is claimed that the U.S. VAERS system is also overwhelmed; there may be  20,000–60,000 deaths waiting to be processed (tinyurl.com/yc3s77wb).

Psychiatric Effects. Hallucinations, confusion, insomnia,  agitation, psychosis, and suicide are among the more than 100,000 reported cases of psychiatric disorders following COVID shots  (https://tinyurl.com/5cvaufvn).

Blindness. The UK Yellow Card system contains about 22,000 reports of eye disorders following COVID-19 shots, including 461 cases of complete blindness (https://tinyurl.com/yckrwznu).

Cancer Progression. A week after a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine, CT/PET scan showed extremely rapid progression of an angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (tinyurl.com/2p8uhpx4).

ACTION OF THE MONTH

Vaccine Liability Concerns

The liability protections enjoyed by COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers are not yet absolute. Alix Mayer, president of the board of directors of Children’s Health Defense, explains the rush to vaccinate children and the reason why Comirnaty is not fully approved. COVID vaccines are “covered countermeasures,” and the only compensation available to injured persons is under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP)—as long as the emergency continues. To get protection from the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, if the emergency ends, a vaccine must be approved and recommended for children under age 18. The convoluted language in FDA’s response to the Biologic License Application (BLA) for Comirnaty preserves its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) status, and states that the product is “ready for approval,” but does not say it is “approved” for actually being administered to people. According to Mayer, Comirnaty is available in the UK, New Zealand, and other places, but not the U.S., because the company is “really scared of liability.”

If one fully approved product is available, she states that others could be at risk of losing their EUA (tinyurl.com/29y2j83w) and liability protection. Then they could not be used.

Note that Pfizer’s Paxlovid and Merck’s molnupiravir have been granted an EUA but are unapproved.

Lack of liability protection is the reason why millions of migrants and country-less people are being denied COVID-19 vaccines. Gavi, the vaccine alliance, has vaccine stockpiles, but can release deliveries only if vaccine-makers accept liability, since no government or nongovernmental organization (NGO) will do so (https://tinyurl.com/yck52c29).


Stare Decisis

This term’s major abortion case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is about stare decisis, namely the extent to which members of this Court should defer to their predecessors’ opinions in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, writes Andy Smarick.

While stare decisis is meant to be a conservative principle “in the sense of prizing continuity and predictability and preferring incremental to dramatic change,” progressive justices are the ones warning that overturning precedent due to political pressure would subvert the Court’s legitimacy.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh pointed out in oral argument that “taking the history of stare decisis seriously requires acknowledging that many of the Court’s finest moments came when it overruled precedent. He cited cases related to ending racial discrimination, protecting voting rights, strengthening the rights of the accused, and more.” All current justices have voted to overturn precedents in recent terms.

Kavanaugh frames the issue as one of self-government, with the people, not judges, determining the moral dimensions of policy. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar argued that Roe and Casey expand liberty and curtail state power. Chief Justice Roberts observed that many cases in the Roe [rights-creating] era might be viewed as wrongly decided. “That is,” Smarick writes, “Roberts likely meant that fixing that era’s mistakes would be an extensive enterprise that could destabilize the law so the Court should just let most of those mistakes be” (tinyurl.com/ycyzasnd).

Tip of the Month: Nearly a year later, the government is still pursuing law-abiding citizens who went to the political rally in Washington, D.C., on Jan 6, 2021. Even a few Americans who did not enter the Capitol, a taxpayer-funded building that should be open to the public, are being harassed. The government is searching  the internet looking for linkage between the rallies and individuals. It appears that the Deep State has become the equivalent of internet trolls, engaging in their investigations by merely surfing the internet. Is it time to leave social media and become active in old-fashioned ways, such as phone calls and private emails?


AAPS Files Amicus in Pain Doctor’s Case

On Dec 27, 2021, AAPS, along with Jeffrey Singer, M.D., filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the court to reverse the unjust conviction of Dr. Xiulu Ruan.

“The question presented, on which the circuits are deeply divided, is whether a physician alleged to have prescribed controlled substances outside the usual course of professional practice may be convicted without regard to whether, in good faith, he ‘reasonably believed’ or ‘subjectively intended’ that his prescriptions fall within that course of professional practice.”

Dr. Ruan is serving a 21-year sentence in federal prison, based on a small fraction of his prescriptions for pain patients. That he was acting in good faith was shown by an unsuccessful undercover sting operation against him, but that evidence and testimony by supportive patients were all withheld from the jury. In addition, the jury was misled that Dr. Ruan could have called anyone he wanted as a witness, although he was only allowed to call patients used by the prosecution.

“Juries are not trained to establish the outer limits of a highly skilled profession,” writes attorney Andrew Schlafly. “The proper task for the jury is to determine whether defendant was acting in good faith, rather than try to ascertain the boundaries of his skilled profession. It is the ultimate injustice for a compassionate and dedicated physician to be imprisoned for the rest of his active life for practicing medicine in a manner he thought best, based on his extensive training, for his patients” (tinyurl.com/2p86xe7z).


The Jury vs. the Politicians

Our Founders recognized the importance of the jury as a protection for liberty and a mediating institution between the individual and the state. “The judgment of the jury in the Rittenhouse trial represents the antithesis of the comments of the politicians on its verdict,” writes John O. McGinnis of Northwestern University (https://tinyurl.com/2jx73t29). “It represents the decision of an informed group drawn together under rules of evidence to encourage reasoned judgment. The comments of the politicians are those of people uninformed by the evidence who have reason to play to the crowd rather than exercise judgment.”
Comments by politicians, such as Joe Biden saying he was “angered” by the verdict, remind us that “our Founders created the jury system in large part to prevent powerful leaders from putting people in jail to satisfy their own political imperatives.”

McGinnis is concerned that the current political culture and irresponsible media reporting threaten the jury system. And as the Ruan case shows, prosecutors and judges can prevent the jury from seeing evidence needed to reach a just verdict.


Correspondence

‘Your Pain Is Not My Pain.’ The days when politicians would routinely offer the “I feel your pain” proclamation in an attempt to get your vote are apparently over. These days, your pain is inconsequential. According to the Buffalo News, a patient’s spine surgery was cancelled because of New York’s dictator Kathy Hochul’s executive order to cancel nonessential surgery in facilities with fewer than 10% of staffed acute-care beds available, in case a COVID-19 surge occurred. The patient fired off emails to Erie County Medical Center executives, or those whose email addresses she could guess, and managed to persuade them that she was in intractable pain and there was a high risk of harm from delay. Her work schedule would have been upended, and she would have had to meet another deductible if the procedure had been delayed past Dec 31 (tinyurl.com/44fwhyf6). Radical “progressives” (socialists) in power are engaging in blatant discrimination. Those who have the ability and means to advocate

for needed medical care may have a chance of getting it. Those who do not are run over by the tyrants like in Tiananmen Square.

Insurers Threatening Doctors. Amerihealth, a wholly owned subsidiary of Independence Blue Cross, which insures people in New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania, sent a threat letter to physicians about ivermectin. Not only did they say it was ineffective and that they wanted their members vaccinated, but they threaten to cut physicians who prescribe it out of the network. And worse yet, they threaten to report termination of the participation contract to the National Practitioner Data Bank.

The Source of Our Misery Is Obvious. When we sign contracts with ANY third party payer (private or government) we are no longer answering the call that drew us into what we thought was the noblest of professions. The payer, not the patient, has become the driving force behind every decision physicians make. It started under the guise of managing the cost of care. The last three decades have witnessed the net that once proud doctors find themselves caught in growing tighter and tighter. Unfortunately, the vast majority of new physicians have never known independence from corporate controls and have dutifully learned to play their game. The few remaining independent physicians are retiring or are already out of the arena. The traditional physician’s spirit has for all practical purposes been crushed. We need to renew the spirit of medicine (rsewell-independentsurgeon.com).

Words for Today from 1948. As C.S.

You and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways…. Death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty…. “The first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds.”

Oath Breakers. In a fine essay that focuses on abuses by FBI agents, especially in intimidating citizens who simply showed up at the Jan 6, 2021, demonstration in D.C. (https://tinyurl.com/yckw2hwp), Jack Green quotes a retired FBI agent: “Current agents are just keeping their heads down and following orders.” All law enforcement officers, however, swear to uphold the Constitution, and there is nothing in the oath about obedience to leadership. The oath is taken by the military, by judges, by officials of all kinds, including members of Congress. I took the oath to
become a member of the Bar of Nebraska, Louisiana, and Texas. 

Those who refuse to violate citizens’ constitutional rights in service to a political agenda or to follow orders will pay a price. But it is a sacrifice they agreed to make when they took the oath as a requirement to exercise the power of the state.

AAPS News December 2021 – State of Emergency

Share:

Volume 77, no. 12  December 2021

A state of emergency, as from a tornado, flood, wildfire, civil unrest, or even a plague, is temporary. Something that permanently cancels traditions, civil rights, existing law, family ties, friendships, and long-standing institutions is a revolution.

In 1665, the Black Plague killed up to 100,000 of London’s population of about 460,000, about 20%. The 1918 pandemic influenza killed about 675,000 of 103 million Americans, about 0.66%. To date, nearly 800,000 U.S. deaths are attributed to COVID-19, or 0.26%. It is said to have “become the deadliest pandemic in American history” (https://tinyurl.com/yu3nrk2n)—and the only one to threaten our way of life.

Alarming daily news reports about this respiratory virus continued, even when the excess all-cause mortality rate had fallen to nearly normal. The majority of adults responded by getting the COVID-19 jabs, yet the mortality rate is now rising rapidly (tinyurl.com/5bf2vb83). In 24 countries and 16 states, cases reached all-time highs after vaccine rollouts (tinyurl.com/4avtnbwf). The least vaccinated continent, Africa, with only 6% jabbed, is the least affected by COVID-19. Yet the Biden regime is blaming the unvaccinated and rushing to jab the one age group in which all-cause mortality is less than baseline (ages 0–14).

Does “the science” tell us to assume that things would have been even worse without the jabs?

The question of vaccine-caused damage and mortality is so radioactive that a press conference sponsored by U.S Senator Ron Johnson, featuring testimony by vaccine-injured people or their parents (tinyurl.com/9kx7v974) is suppressed. An edited version of a panel discussion with medical experts and patients held by Sen. Johnson is available on YouTube (tinyurl.com/26nf9m7y).

If this testimony were on network television, vaccination centers would be still emptier, even if Dr. Fauci followed with reassurances about rarity and coincidences. To the “benefits greatly outweigh the risks,” most people would reply that a one-in-a-million risk of that person’s horrible outcome is not worth it.

Civil Rights Emergency

The long tradition of liberty in Western countries is the target of extremist government measures that treat the unvaccinated as Untermenschen. Austria has become a dictatorship, stated Herbert Kickl of the “far-Right” Freedom party, which has also advocated “scientifically unproven” early treatment with drugs such as ivermectin. Austria entered its fourth national lockdown on Nov 22,  which is supposed to be lifted for fully vaccinated people by Dec 12. (“Fully vaccinated” status expires in 7 months.) In February, vaccination will be mandatory for all, with certain medical exceptions. Austria, said to be the least vaccinated country in Western Europe, will be the first to implement a universal mandate. Persuasion has not worked in 34%, noted Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg, so now there will be fines, and prison for those who cannot or will not pay (https://tinyurl.com/wenyxwcr).

Throughout the world, millions were in the streets on Nov 20, protesting vaccine passports and COVID-19 vaccine mandates (tinyurl.com/949ezf89). U.S. mainstream media was only concerned about protests of the Rittenhouse not-guilty verdict.

In some places in India, persons with leprosy—formerly a lifelong, incurable disease—still cannot get a driver’s license or ride on trains. Otherwise, people have not, until now, been treated as pariahs because of health status, certainly not because they might contract a disease that would be contagious for 2 weeks. Recall the uproar about briefly quarantining people who had been exposed to Ebola. AIDS-infected victims were never subjected to government edicts barring them from private businesses or from employment or from receiving their pensions or needed goods and services. Today, there is outrage about the social discrimination that did occur (tinyurl.com/yufebenv).

Washington Post columnist and former Planned Parenthood head Leana Wen, M.D., said: “We need to start looking at the choice to remain unvaccinated the same as we look at driving while intoxicated.” Noam Chomsky said the unvaccinated should be isolated, and trouble getting food was “their problem” (ibid.).

Medical Emergency

The healthcare sector has lost nearly half a million workers since February 2020. Some 18% quit, and 12% were laid off. Vaccine mandates are likely to result in the loss of many more.

An article in The Atlantic blames poor pay and working conditions and the stress of dealing with COVID-19. “Most” patients, it claims, are unvaccinated and may be “belligerent and vocal.”  Some might have “yelled for hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin, neither of which has any proven benefit for COVID-19.”

It is now much harder to get good medical care for anything, author Ed Jong notes. Workers suffer “moral distress” from being unable to do what they know is right (tinyurl.com/f8bkss78).


Moral Emergency

As stated by Jörg Hacker, former president of the Robert Koch Institut (2008–2010), “Almost all have participated or remained silent. For the violation of humanistic principles, for the breach of dignity and bodily integrity, there has never been a justification, even when the majority tolerates or actually demands it” [ed. translation] (tinyurl.com/sm6w5ude). As the current RKI head says there is an emergency, RKI might support  a mandate.


Precedent

During World War II, 120,000 Japanese men, women, children were hauled off without trial and imprisoned for 3 years or more in a hellish camp, on the basis of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066. This was later legalized by Congress and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in Korematsu v. U.S. The majority of the victims were U.S. citizens, some World War I veterans. Not one was ever found guilty of spying or sabotage for Tokyo, although 10 Caucasians were. Meanwhile, 156,000 persons of Japanese descent remained free in Hawaii, where only 4,000 leaders were imprisoned. The Supreme Court precedent stands, and not one single official was ever held accountable for up-ending the lives of innocent individuals (Richard Maybury’s Early Warning Report, December 2021).


‘A War Is Not Lost Until You Consider It Lost’

The attack on Pearl Harbor was based on the concept of Kantai Kessen, or the Decisive Battle Doctrine, which holds that a nation-state may hope to prevail over a much more powerful adversary only by bringing the opponent to battle on a field of the weaker nation’s choosing. The Pearl Harbor sneak attack was a brilliant tactical success for Japan, but a strategic catastrophe in the long run. Admiral Yamamoto issued the prophetic warning: “I fear that all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.” Americans were furious, but did not seek the decisive battle the Japanese hoped for. Instead, they waited, building up their strength. The Imperial Japanese Navy lost the war the second the Americans refused to follow the script the Japanese had laid out for them (tinyurl.com/2p8u53xr).

Over the past year or two, all elements of the “Woke” contingent—media, universities, nongovernmental organizations, tech companies, radicals, the Democrat Party, “never-Trumper” Republicans, the Deep State, upper echelons of big business—have come together like a Japanese carrier group. The shock-and-awe campaign against the Deplorables might appear to be a smashing success. But: “it is all well and good to sink all the ships in Pearl Harbor, but what do you do if the enemy then refuses to concede defeat? Well, you lose, that’s what, provided your enemy can hold onto his patience, his resolve, and his nerve long enough” (https://tinyurl.com/2p9a4yey).

In America’s current class war, the imbalance between the credentialed classes with “email jobs” and the forgotten people who keep the lights on and the garbage from piling up, or drive trucks or fly planes, is even greater than that between America and Japan in World War II.  But how to direct this strength?

Researchers conclude that inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle may account for increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination (Circulation, Nov 8, 2021, https://tinyurl.com/2p8nfrby).

Deadly Lots. An investigation of VAERS reports showed that 100% of COVID-19 vaccine deaths with identified lot numbers were associated with just 5% of batches produced. These lot numbers were disproportionately sent to Republican-controlled states, researchers said (tinyurl.com/yc8aakfj).

Unpublishable Observations. An informal review of charts in a cardiology practice showed that 87 patients with previously stable conditions who received vaccine at a retail pharmacy  experienced various cardiac complications including sudden death; all had elevated troponins. Of 32 more privileged patients who received vaccine at an elite academic center, none had worsening of cardiac status and no troponin elevation. Generally, vaccination site is not used as a primary variable in VAERS. Clearly, not all lots or vaccination sites are equal.

UK Death Rates. According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), all-cause mortality in vaccinated people age 10–59 has been double that in unvaccinated people (about 2.9 vs. 1.4/100,000) since April 2021 (tinyurl.com/ytrnn5dk).

Heart Disease in Athletes. Since December 2020, 183 professional athletes, coaches, and college and youth athletes have abruptly collapsed, and 108 have died, mainly of cardiac problems. There were 21 cases of sudden unexpected death or sudden cardiac deaths in FIFA athletes, five times the pre-vaccination annual average of 4.2. Most have to have the COVID jab to be allowed to play (https://tinyurl.com/2p987fub).

Tumors. There are no studies of carcinogenicity of COVID vaccines. VigiAccess, a WHO database, reports 3,709 cases of “neoplasms”; the UK’s Yellow Card system, 731 neoplasms; and VAERS, hundreds of brain, breast, oral, skin, and colon cancers that appeared suddenly (tinyurl.com/2p9c87nx). Pathologist Ryan Cole pinpoints possible mechanisms (https://tinyurl.com/2p8fzavj) at an AAPS-sponsored Texas summit on COVID-19 vaccines (https://tinyurl.com/3hs583sj).

ACTION OF THE MONTH

If you offer early treatment for COVID-19 by protocol similar to those at c19protocols.com, please add your name to a list we are compiling to help patients at bit.ly/covidearlytx.


Can Patients Drop out of Medicare?

Only patients who pay Premium-Part A can drop Part A. To drop out of Part B, patients need to send Social Security a signed written request. Anyone who wants to get back in will have to wait until the next General Enrollment Period (Jan 1–Mar 31), and coverage won’t start until July. Also, a monthly late enrollment penalty based on the time without coverage will be charged as long as the person has Part B (tinyurl.com/2ke9t4dj).

In 2022, Part B monthly premiums will increase by 14.5%, from $148.50 to $170.10, more if one’s modified adjusted gross income was $88,000 or more (for single individual) 2 years ago. 

Patients are asking about dropping out of Part B because they feel it is not worth it. Also, they cannot get non-Medicare-approved services except from an opted-out physician, though most are not yet aware of this.


OK Bill Would Allow Suits for Vaccine Damage

Oklahoma Senate Bill 1106 would allow employees to sue their employers for up to $1 million over medical issues connected to treatments required as a condition for employment. Commenters noted that this was not nearly enough to replace lifetime income and benefits but would send a message. They asked who would decide whether a COVID-19 shot was responsible. A few said that those who agreed to take the shot shared in the responsibility (https://tinyurl.com/3u6yw2n3).


OSHA Mandate Blocked in Fifth Circuit

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has reaffirmed its stay on enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring all businesses with 100 or more employees to require COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing. It slammed this rule as “staggeringly overbroad” and “fatally flawed,” and said it “grossly exceeds OSHA’s statutory authority” (tinyurl.com/yckwx9r4).

The vaccine mandate “threatens to substantially burden the liberty interests of reluctant individual recipients,” wrote Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt. “Likewise, the companies seeking a stay in this case will also be irreparably harmed in the absence of a stay, whether by the business and financial effects of a lost or suspended employee, compliance and monitoring,… or stiff financial penalties on companies that refuse to punish or test unwilling employees” (https://tinyurl.com/ss9jrxy9).

The mandate does not allow consideration of natural immunity. Tests must be performed by a laboratory or proctored. Extensive record-keeping is required. Since OSHA has only 1,850 inspectors, enforcement would have to rely on snitches.

“While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” according to its website (https://www.osha.gov/coronavirus/ets2).

Biden press secretary Jen Psaki, along with the AMA, told businesses to implement the mandate anyway. The Administration is confident that it has the authority to impose the rule and is still working under the guise that businesses will meet the Jan 4 deadline, Psaki said (https://tinyurl.com/yanu8a2u).


Tip of the Month: The DEA fully accepts a home address as the principal place of business of a physician. But guess what? That subjects his home to unexpected inspections at any time, based merely on an administrative subpoena rather than a real warrant signed by a judge. The Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures of one’s home are waived by anyone who uses a home address on his DEA registration. Also, “an individual practitioner or mid-level practitioner whose DEA-registered location is a home must comply with the established recordkeeping requirements (see 21 CFR 1304 and 1305) and security requirements,” the DEA recently announced.


CMS Mandate Challenged

The CMS mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccination of everyone who works in a healthcare facility that receives federal funding has been challenged by at least three lawsuits.

A case brought by the attorneys general of Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and West Virginia alleges that the mandate violates the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by seeking “to commandeer state-employee surveyors to become enforcers of CMS’s unlawful attempt to federalize national vaccine policy and override the States’ police power on matters of health and safety” (tinyurl.com/mrxbjmdx). 

A case brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton states that “amid a harrowing worker shortage, the Biden Administration has prioritized this unlawful vaccine mandate over the healthcare of all Americans” (tinyurl.com/2p8dax4e).

The Missouri suit, joined by Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming, states that CMS violated the Administrative Procedure Act and ignores circumstances that “foreshadow an impending disaster in the healthcare industry” (tinyurl.com/yckv5mrm).


Pending Litigation

Natural Immunity. Aaron Kheriaty, M.D., sued the Univ. of California over COVID-19 vaccine mandates in recovered patients. The CDC, stated attorney Adam Siri, cannot cite a single instance in which a recovered patient has transmitted COVID, though vaccinated persons have (tinyurl.com/5eayuset). Dr. Keriaty was placed on investigatory leave (tinyurl.com/9jt5hsnu).

FOIA Complaint. In Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency v. FDA, PHMPT seeks to obtain data relied upon by  FDA to license the Pfizer Vaccine (tinyurl.com/48jacpdd). FDA has asked the judge to give it until 2076 to release the 329,000+ pages of documents, at the rate of 500 pages/month. FDA purportedly reviewed them all in 108 days (tinyurl.com/tvb2jv54).

Hospitals’ Treatment Bans. Lawsuits demanding that hospitals allow ivermectin use in dying patients have mixed results. DuPage County Circuit Judge Paul Fullerton ordered a hospital to step aside and allow Alan Bain, D.O., to administer the drug; the patient is recovering (tinyurl.com/2p93xm2b). Chief Justice Bonnie Sudderth of the Texas Second Court of Appeals in Fort Worth reversed a trial court decision, and Texas Health Hughely is blocking administration of the drug (tinyurl.com/4yna667c). Mary Talley Bowden, M.D., who recommended it, had her privileges suspended by Houston Methodist (tinyurl.com/2p97bhnu).


Correspondence

Support the Jab—or Else. After a hospital complained to the licensure board about a doctor’s writing medical exemptions for its employees, the board suspended his license for 30 days, alleging deceit, fraud, or unprofessional conduct. It is open season on doctors who fail to bow down to the vaccine idol.

Doctors who reject the COVID-19 jab for themselves, for whatever reason, often have their employment terminated, and this may not be the end of the matter. The hospital or university may lure the doctor into resigning, while withholding the fact that a peer review investigation is underway. If the doctor has an automatic termination-of-medical-staff-privileges provision in his contract, the hospital can report to the National Practitioner Data Bank that he has “resigned while under or to avoid investigation,” with no right to a peer review hearing or appeal. AAPS has saved many careers by advising doctors not to resign in these situations.

Notification. I received a notice in the monthly electronic newsletter from the Maine licensure board citing the Federation of State Medical Board’s statement about “COVID-19 vaccine misinformation” (tinyurl.com/5ru7b968) and the joint supporting statement from the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics (tinyurl.com/4kj53fek). The Maine Board “also applies this standard to all misinformation regarding Covid-19, including non-verbal treatments and preventative measures. Physicians…who spread Covid-19 misinformation, or practice based on such misinformation, erode public trust in the medical profession and may endanger patients.” Treatments and recommendations that “fall below the standard of care as established by medical experts,” or issuing a vaccine exemption without an “appropriate” examination and without finding a “legitimate medical reason…within the standard of care” may place a doctor’s license at risk.

Michael Ciampi, M.D., South Portland, ME


Non-vaccine Is Failing. Joe Biden’s own senior health officials such as CDC Director Walensky have been telling us since August that the COVID-19 shot does not prevent infection or  transmission of the virus. That’s why the CDC changed its official definition of the term “vaccine” to exclude the term “immunity.”  They say you must take the shot because it may prevent serious illness, but we know there are plenty of other things that may prevent serious illness from the virus—such as ivermectin. On Nov 4, Nature reported a study of 800,000 veterans 6 months after the shot. Between March and November, the effectiveness of the Moderna shot fell from 85% to 58%; Pfizer, from 85% to 45%; and J&J, from 86% to 15%. Factoring in natural immunity, one could argue that the vaccines are nearly worthless. Resistance to the  mandate is growing, with thousands preferring to be fired rather than taking the shot. With the country on the edge of an economic abyss, Biden is doubling down. How far is he willing to go to enforce this tyranny?

Ron Paul, M.D.,  https://tinyurl.com/py3kn5ev


Will There Be Abortion Mandates? Hitler had them. China had them. The Biden Administration gave the UN $5 million for abortion drugs and devices (https://tinyurl.com/pskbj2c).

A Worst Disaster than Imagined. This devastating analysis of VAERS (tinyurl.com/2drzwbr5) shows that the magnitude of  adverse events to COVID-19 “vaccines” is stunning.  Myocarditis is acknowledged, but more than 200 symptoms occur at an even higher rate relative to other vaccines. Female reproductive issues top the list. This experiment may have killed more than 150,000 Americans and permanently disabled many more.

John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Brownwood, TX


Marxism Comes to America. When I was growing up under Soviet-style communism in Romania, we experienced tyranny and deprivation. Now, in the U.S., there are looming shortages, falsified data, bribes for a COVID diagnosis, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, denial of life-saving drugs not on the NIH protocol, strip-searches even without an arrest, and refusal of care to noncompliant persons. Doctors’ visits have been transformed into virtual pretend-care. American Marxists, who are both “D’s” and “R’s,” can easily cut access to necessities and your bank account. The old communists had to hire an army of informers and wiretappers to get a fraction of the information that now resides with our techie controllers. They had Pravda. America has an alphabet soup of fake media to spread propaganda. With technology, Marxism is much worse.

Medicare Ad Blitz. Celebrities such as Joe Namath and William Shatner are on TV urging seniors to get benefits like dental care, eyeglasses, and free rides to the clinic when they sign up for Medicare Advantage plans—which are restricted-access networks. Noncompliant physicians are terminated when they do not follow company rules specifying access to them and the content and value of the medical care they provide.

AAPS News October 2021 – Desperation and Hope



Volume 77, no. 10  October 2021

More and more businesses are going bankrupt, and more and more Americans are facing unemployment and poverty as coercive measures tighten. What is really going on? Is it just a virus with a 99.9+% survival rate? There are hints behind the impossible plot in David Baldacchi’s thriller Total Control. Reissued in 2019 but written 23 years ago (as one might guess from the starring role of a floppy disk), it portrays the power of the Federal Reserve and the technology industry—and its penetration into the FBI. Like the lead character, we must all ask, “Whom can we trust?”

The Digital-Financial Complex

The situation is unique in the history of the world, states German financial journalist Ernst Wolff in an Oct 19, 2019, essay  (tinyurl.com/452vj3ry) and an August 2021 lecture on “Uncovering the Corona Narrative” (tinyurl.com/2x6kjwkr). Never before has the entire world been placed under such a coercive regime.

Wolff quotes Franklin Roosevelt, who said that nothing in politics happens by accident; you can bet that it was planned.

Government policies have not contained SARS-CoV-2, but they have wrecked the global economy. Supply chains are broken; harvests are being lost; essential semiconductors are scarce. The constant threat of new restrictions keeps problems from being solved. In China, the third largest port terminal in the world was shut down because of a single positive test in a worker.

Who can benefit from driving small and medium-size businesses to the wall by constant uncertainty and harsher regulation? These are the biggest source of jobs and tax revenue.

The principal profiteer and the most important string-puller, Wolff explains, is the digital-financial complex: the largest information technology (IT) concerns headed by the leading asset managers of our time. These include Apple, Google parent Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook. The market capitalization of these companies alone is $5.1 trillion; the combined GDP of Germany, France, and Italy is $8.6 trillion. The biggest asset managers—BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street, and Fidelity are significantly involved in all IT companies. Together they manage $220.6 trillion; the combined GDP of all 28 countries of the EU amounted to $15.7 trillion. In addition, IT companies control hundreds of thousands of other companies because they organize the digital systems and thus have a constant overview of their data streams.

“The IT industry is nothing other than a tumor that over past years has metastasized into all other branches of the economy, to make them dependent on it and to completely dominate them,” Wolff states. Also, the asset managers are involved in every large undertaking and are able to influence every popular brand in the world. BlackRock’s Aladdin Data Cloud has the greatest accumulation of financial information that the world has ever seen, which it uses behind the scenes to influence the largest central banks, e.g. the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (EZB). So we have a unique historic mix of raw financial power and discretionary power over an unimaginably gigantic data pool. These companies had a huge business upswing in this crisis, gaining the largest profits in their entire history in a single quarter, and their advantage is continuously accelerating.

The digital-financial complex is the global power center, which drives everything. It stands far above all governments, and is in a position at any time to bring every government in the world to its knees, states Wolff. The perception that it is undermining the very system from which it profits misses the reality: the digital-financial complex has no choice but to continue its present course.

The current system can no longer be kept alive. It was very close to death in the world financial crisis of 2007-2008 and would have collapsed had central banks not created massive amounts of money out of nothing. Over the next 12 years, 700 decreases in interest rates have made the system ever more unstable. In March 2020, the threatened collapse was postponed only through the reduction of interest rates to zero and a final injection of billions of fiat currency. What now? Total collapse of the banking system through negative interest rates, or worthless money?

Wolff writes that the digital-financial complex is preparing a new system, while plundering the dying one.  The new system will  destroy cash and normal banking, and introduce digital money from central banks, which can be created in infinite amounts. It enables governments to oversee and control all transactions, easily impose differential taxes and fines, and cancel our ability to make any transactions. It enables an all-encompassing dictatorship accomplished through money. To prevent enormous social unrest resulting from gradual introduction, the digital-financial complex has apparently developed the brilliant strategy of turning the situation around: Cause social chaos first and introduce digital money as the answer in the form of the universal basic income (UBI). Out of maximum chaos, even to the extent of worldwide civil war, bring maximum control in the guise of humanitarian aid.

The situation in American medicine (see p 2) fits into the Wolff’s scenario for the general economy. COVID-19, or COVID-1984 as it was called at the AAPS 78th annual meeting, is a catalyst for the Great Reset (AAPS NewsNovember 2020).

But desperation is forcing the globalists to cross ever more red lines. Their window of opportunity could be ours. By exposing their lies, we could use the crisis to turn the direction of human history and open the door to a new and better era.


Desperation and U.S. Medicine

Conveniently, COVID kills mainly the elderly, and mortality from delays in cancer screening or other forgone care disproportionately affect older patients. Also, there has been a massive increase in the number of Do Not Resuscitate Orders (DNRs), and hospitals have considered “universal DNRs” for any COVID-positive patient (https://tinyurl.com/yp4mkckn).

Since 1965, AAPS has warned that Medicare is unsustainable, as is Social Security. As the tsunami of retiring Baby Boomers hits, the 2020s are “the decade of fiscal reckoning,” writes David Stockman (https://tinyurl.com/377acsse). Between 2020 and 2030, under the Congressional Budget Office’s overly optimistic assumptions, Social Security spending will burgeon from $1.091 trillion to $1.835 trillion; federal civilian and military retirement benefits from $173 billion to $227 billion; and Medicare from $862 billion to $1.61 trillion.

U.S. corporate medicine and the pharmaceutical industry are giant stakeholders in the digital financial complex. Its corporate oligarchs pass through a revolving door into federal agencies such as CDC, NIH, and FDA, dominating the network that dictates conventional wisdom. The top three Pfizer shareholders are  Vanguard, BlackRock, and State Street (tinyurl.com/3ch43yrv).

“Beneficiaries” are unfunded liabilities of the government-digital-financial complex, which is desperate.


Excess COVID-Related Deaths

The press has called 2020 the UK’s deadliest year since World War II, ignoring the massive increase in population. By the Age-Standardised Mortality Rate (ASMR), 2020 isn’t even the worst year since 2000. In fact, since 1943 only 9 years have been better than 2020. In the U.S. the ASMR for 2020 is only at 2004 levels (tinyurl.com/2te9ksmb). Nearly everywhere, the median age of “COVID death” has exceeded life expectancy (ibid.).

How much morbidity and mortality is acceptable to combat a disease less lethal than many previous pandemics? VigiAccess, the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) publicly accessible database, shows more than 2 million possible COVID vaccine injuries in 2021 alone, with 69% occurring in female patients and 39% in 18–44-year-olds (https://tinyurl.com/xjfeu7d7).

A VAERS under-reporting multiplier of 41 was calculated by Jessica Rose, Ph.D., based on the rate of anaphylaxis reported in JAMA, of 2.47/10,000 (tinyurl.com/3suy44br), compared with 583 cases/97.5 million reported to VAERS. Applying this multiplier and also using other methods, Rose calculated that  more than 150,000 Americans, including 600 children, may have died because of COVID vaccines (tinyurl.com/4jwrbn9p).

In 2021, excess deaths in 29 EU countries are as great as in 2020, and trending upward,  but the age distribution has shifted to younger groups (tinyurl.com/bkybjv4a). In England, most of the excess mortality is from cardiovascular disease. Could this be from the vaccination campaign (https://tinyurl.com/2crfnaaz)?


“The Berlin Wall didn’t fall because the East German government said, ‘Let’s pass a bill. We’ll finally tear down this wall. The people deserve freedom.’ The wall fell because people no longer gave their consent to live under tyranny. We have reason, logic, and science on our side. We need only courage, resolve, and hard work, and we will prevail.” —Marc Morano


Lessons from the Holocaust

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis established a “biocracy,” which ultimately murdered millions of innocent persons. Contrary to a prevalent myth, doctors were not forced to participate.  Doctors and nurses had a peculiarly strong attraction to the Nazi philosophy. Nearly 50% of physicians had joined the Nazi party by 1945, much higher than any other profession, and were seven times more likely to join the SS than other employed German males. Why? To the Nazis, the Reich was a living body, and those who did not contribute were a “disease.” Euthanasia was “humane” and a “private matter” between patients and doctors. Moreover, it was “good science,” and science was god. Legality trumped morality. If medicine is to survive as a profession of healing, writes Ashley Fernandes (tinyurl.com/56r24t5j), physicians must affirm that the ultimate unit of value of human life is the individual person—not the collective.


COVID-19: the Great Reset

In his book by this title, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab admits that “the corona crisis is (so far) one of the least deadly pandemics the world has experience [sic] over the last 2000 years.” However, it may compel us to “act faster by replacing failed ideas, institutions, processes and rules.” It is the globalists’ “greatest cause for hope”—of world government, central planning of all aspects of life, and leveling differences in standards of living.

Behind the noble-sounding ambitions, what is the real agenda, asks Joaquin Flores in “The Great Reset Morality: Euthanization of the Inessentials”? Genocide? Enslavement? A combination of the two? (https://tinyurl.com/2m5639bm).

Our great hope to preserve our freedom, our individual rights, and self-governance is that the pack of lies is collapsing, Wolff writes. The media’s vehemence testifies not to strength but to weakness. The credibility of those who led us into this disaster is being buried deeper day by day. We need a vast and comprehensive program of enlightenment.


Products of Human Vivisection

Controversy over COVID-19 “vaccines” has increased awareness of the market for “fresh” material from aborted human fetuses. Especially disturbing is Pamela Acker’s statement that “the babies are still alive when the researchers start extracting the tissue.” Fetal cell lines are involved in all U.S. COVID vaccines (tinyurl.com/9wbznx9z), and in testing Regeneron’s monoclonal antibodies (tinyurl.com/47d7mymk). The abortion industry confidently anticipates greater demand (tinyurl.com/5mrutt3z).

Is Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Lawful?

Attorney Jonathan Emord writes that the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate on companies with 100 or more employees will “sink in a legal quagmire,” a “litigation maelstrom the likes of which the nation has not seen since employers sued in overwhelming numbers to invalidate Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s failed National Industrial Recovery Act.” Grounds for challenge include the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment; the Tenth Amendment; the Separation of Powers doctrine; the Americans with Disabilities Act; and Title VII of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act, which protects against religious discrimination (https://tinyurl.com/kfuxt75x).

Some claim that the Biden mandate is a bluff, and point out that as of Oct 10 no rule had been issued by the enforcement agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Joy Pullman of The Federalist states that the Administration is imposing the public perception of a mandate by following an unusual rule-making process, an emergency temporary standard or ETS. But even through the ETS, it takes up to 6 months for a rule to go into effect after it is issued in the Federal Register. It isn’t there yet, but companies are telling reporters their vaccine mandates will have, at the latest, December deadlines.

Pullman observed that “using the ETS procedure…allows the Biden administration to push its demands faster and without any public input or requirement of responding to public input.” 

“That is part of why ETS rules have been overwhelmingly overturned in courts,” she wrote. But because there is no mandate for them to bring to court, the nearly two dozen Republican attorneys general who have threatened to sue on constitutional grounds have not yet filed.

 Companies comply because of potential sanctions, especially if they are dependent on federal contracts or regulators’ good will. Fines in the $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill run as high as $700,000 for willful or repeated violations (tinyurl.com/26ansfpz).

This back-door plan shows the “dark brilliance of administrative state authoritarians,” writes Alex Berenson.


Pending COVID-Related Litigation

Southwest Airlines Pilots Association: SWAPA claims that carrier has taken unilateral actions that violate terms of the Railway Labor Act, which governs relations between airlines and employee unions, in mandating the jab. In addition, it notes that pilots are at a unique risk because adverse reactions to a vaccine could affect their ability to pass periodic medical examinations required to maintain their license. The union wants to negotiate how such instances would be covered by long-term disability policies. (https://tinyurl.com/ywkmnsck).

Religious Discrimination in Colorado:  The Thomas More Society is suing  the University of Colorado’s Anschutz School of Medicine on behalf of a Catholic and a Buddhist student whose religious exemptions were denied. An exemption is available only to those whose religions oppose all immunizations (https://tinyurl.com/ywcc2whf).

Kaiser Permanente: This giant corporation has placed about 5,000 of its 200,000 employees on unpaid leave for not getting the jab, and has reneged on many religious exemptions. In United KP Freedom Alliance v. Kaiser Permanente, case 4-21-cv-07894 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Oakland Division, plaintiffs ask for injunctive relief and damages, including exemplary and punitive damages (https://tinyurl.com/74j23jts).

“Kaiser Permanente asserts that it is merely following CDC guidelines,” states America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS). But as the nation’s largest healthcare employer, Kaiser wields enormous power, and has an incestuous relationship with policymakers.  The Complaint shows that Kaiser dominates both the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), which makes recommendations to the CDC, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), which makes recommendations to the FDA.

The Complaint distinguishes the case from the Jacobson v. Massachusetts precedent. First, Jacobson applied a small one-time financial penalty but not a severe penalty such as unemployment or unemployability. Second, COVID has a 0.1% infection fatality rate, which is not remotely similar to the 33% death rate in the 1905 smallpox outbreak (https://tinyurl.com/3kkn7dhd).


Sixth Circuit Affirms Dismissal of AAPS v. FDA

Without reaching the merits, the Court affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of the AAPS case against FDA for withholding millions of doses of hydroxychloroquine donated to the National Strategic Stockpile, citing lack of standing (https://tinyurl.com/5dwmek7c). AAPS “failed to plausibly plead that any member has been injured by the actions of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that it criticizes,” the Court held. The Court ducked the issue of FDA’s intimidating statements that could have caused the preventable death of hundreds of thousands by denial of safe early COVID-19 treatment. “Much of the opinion is unjustified legal theorizing about the doctrine of legal standing, while lives are at stake,” states AAPS counsel Andrew Schlafly. “The Court did recognize that the FDA cannot interfere with off-label prescribing.” For a timeline of the litigation, see https://aapsonline.org/hcqsuit/.


Religious Liberty Upheld

New York must continue to allow healthcare workers to seek exemptions from a statewide COVID-19 vaccine mandate on religious grounds as a lawsuit challenging the requirement proceeds. Judge David Hurd in Utica issued a preliminary injunction in a case brought by 17 plaintiffs. Unlike other judges ruling in similar cases, Hurd concluded “the public interest lies with enforcing the guarantees enshrined in the Constitution and federal anti-discrimination law” and not the wider public health. Plaintiffs oppose any medical cooperation in abortions. Their identities are kept private because they fear retaliation (tinyurl.com/2de65msh).

Judge Terry Doughty ruled that the vaccine mandate violates  religious liberty and issued a temporary restraining order in Magliulo v. Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, No. 3:21-cv-2304 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The Judge found that restrictions that would interfere with dissenting students’ right to graduate defeat the purpose of having a right to dissent. These included barring unvaccinated students from participating in Standardized Patient Examinations and Early Clinical Experiences. Doughty further ruled that the school is not allowed to retaliate or discriminate against the students for filing proceedings (https://tinyurl.com/2upwx2ek).


Correspondence

Bad Time to Get Sick in NY State. Gov. Kathy Hochul, New York’s new dictator, has ordered that all healthcare workers at all NYS hospitals must be vaccinated by Sept 27th, or placed on unpaid administrative leave or terminated. The royal proclamation did not include any exemptions. Thus, if a person has a known allergy to polyethylene glycol, best prepare to risk death so as to uphold the order. This dictatorial mandate also affects rehabilitation and long-term care facilities, where some employees are also refusing to submit to vaccines. That will create a “back-up effect” much like a clogged sewer line outside one’s home.  Erie County Medical Center, the region’s only level-one trauma center, will not be able to transfer patients to these facilities because of lack of sufficient staff, and those patients will remain in ECMC occupying beds. ECMC could lock out 400 staff members (Buffalo News 9/25/21). The proposed solution to this pending massive shortage of workers, getting replacement staff from temp agencies, is pure fairy tale. The demand will far outstrip the supply.

Orwell’s Inspiration. This will probably be my last month at my federally qualified health clinic as I shall not comply with the vaccine mandate. I will “die on this hill.” This is 1932 Germany.

It is still the early phase of the “owners” resisting any change in their status. They seek to impose further losses on all non-owners as the system crumbles. The roots of the Great Reset agenda can be traced back 80 years, described in James Burnham’s book The Managerial Revolution. This ideology triggered Orwell to write 1984 (tinyurl.com/ejxy5jdb).

I believe we have only begun the most trying decade of our lives. I am doing what I can on the information front, treating patients while still permitted, and growing vegetables.

Academia Is a Lethal Toxin. After I earned two terminal degrees in professional schools and spent some time on a university medical faculty, I realized the universities were going to destroy us as a society and take us down as a civilization. Academic tyranny and totalitarian thinking, exemplifying Angelo Codevilla’s concept of the Ruling Class and their army of “experts,” has now invaded the professions, so now “consensus” thinking is dominant and eliminates good science. As Scott Forman writes, “universities are the key to the cultural and political domination of the country by progressive elites because they alone can grant credentials” (https://tinyurl.com/3h58w8m5).

No Safety Mechanism. I have chaired data safety monitoring boards (DSMBs) for more than two dozen therapeutic products, for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Big Pharma corporations. The threshold for shutting down a program is a few cases of unexplained serious adverse events. If we get to 50 unexplained deaths in a release of a product, it’s gone. The 1976 swine flu vaccine campaign was suspended after just 10 weeks due to 25 sudden deaths and 550 reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome following vaccination. In contrast, with our current COVID-19 gene-transfer vaccination campaign, we are far beyond that. There are no external advisory committees, no human ethics committee, no DSMB. A DSMB would have shut the program down in February. A person is more likely to die after the vaccine than after COVID itself. Yet coercion to take the vaccine is going on in lockstep worldwide. This can’t be about the virus, or about money. It’s about a totalitarian takeover that’s occurred all over the world. Something very dark is going on (tinyurl.com/yhjtt3ne).

Shutting Down Scientific Inquiry. A few days after journalist Alex Newman wrote an article about a paper on climate change by nearly two dozen experts in solar physics, a “fact-checker” website financially supported by Facebook, TikTok, Google News Initiative, and others declared the article to be “incorrect” and “misleading.” Facebook then began censoring any posts sharing the link. A “fact-check fact check” using the site’s own framework showed that its farcical “fact check” was guilty of 11 of the 14 classes of misinformation the website warns against, while Newman’s article contained none of them. Why is science reporting being subjected to fact checking by non-experts? A weaponized “fact check,” which apparently began with “climate change,” is nothing more than a narrative check (tinyurl.com/3mwarv9u).

AAPS News September 2021 – The Keystone

Share:

Volume 77, no. 9  September 2021     

After decades of incrementalism, with surrender of rights in exchange for promised safety or “benefits,” it is becoming plain that neither a nation nor an individual can be half slave and half free. You either have unalienable rights—or you don’t.

If you need an exemption to avoid an action that you believe immoral or potentially lethal, you have no right to liberty.

Medicine, it is said, is the keystone in the arch of socialism. But what about in the structure of freedom? If we abolish the right to bodily integrity, will all freedom collapse?

The elusive SARS-CoV-2 virus might kill fewer than one in a thousand generally healthy people that it infects, but it might be the pretext for completing the destruction of freedom.

Who’s in Charge?

KMED talk show host Bill Meyer asked this question, as have many others. Most of the time, the answer is NOT your doctor.

If you are in the hospital or seen by an employed or a contracted physician, your treatment will be determined by protocol. Doctors who deviate are likely to be fired. Hydroxychloroquine is generally not allowed, but prohibitions go much further. One physician who works in a physician-owned clinic was not allowed to order home oxygen or prednisone. One hospital posted a sign in big red letters: NO vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, or ivermectin.

Physicians may be pressured to give remdesivir (Veklury™), convalescent plasma, or baricitinib (Olumiant™) in combination with remdesivir to unlock a potential bonus payment of up to $20,000 to the hospital from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (https://tinyurl.com/4kspczaf). Under the PrEP act, the hospital enjoys full liability protection when using these “covered” treatments. Still, remdesivir is losing popularity because of ineffectiveness and frequent renal and other organ failure.

The global war against hydroxychloroquine began very early, and recently the attack on early treatment has added ivermectin as that drug has gained attention. The FDA launched a Twitter campaign @US_FDA: “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.” The message warns that use of this drug to treat COVID-19 “can be dangerous and even lethal.”

The AMA and its constituent societies leapt into action, warning about increasing calls to poison control centers. AMA,  together with American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) issued a press release stating that they “strongly oppose the ordering, prescribing, or dispensing of ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial” (https://tinyurl.com/py5jvt8a). Physicians disagree. They have been writing about 88,000 prescriptions weekly, and. the Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Haruo Ozaki, recommended that all doctors in Japan immediately begin using ivermectin to treat COVID (https://tinyurl.com/292wbnsv). But many American pharmacists are refusing to fill prescriptions, telling the patient and the doctor that “we read the data.”

A Needle in Every Arm

The only permitted answer is the shot. Immunity doesn’t matter. Having antibodies and T-cells does not get you a “green pass.” Having the shot does not prevent infection. Vaccinated and unvaccinated shed virus. Israel, the most vaccinated country in the world, is having a massive outbreak, with more COVID-19 infections per capita than any country in the world. But does the shot prevent hospitalization and death? In the UK, a majority of the COVID-19 deaths last month were among vaccinated people, with a death rate dramatically higher than a year ago, when there was no vaccine (tinyurl.com/y3eszkpz). Could the vaccine be worsening the situation? Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of mRNA vaccines, suggests that the vaccine is leading to escape mutants (tinyurl.com/9ppepjz3). It might create a “monoculture” immunity, like monoculture agriculture. A new strain might wipe out a population that had only very narrow immunity.

In the U.S., authorities claim that we are having a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Are almost all the hospitalized or dying patients unvaccinated? Nurses on the frontlines who have access to patient charts say no. Whom should we believe?

Denialism prevails on unexpected post-jab deaths. The CDC asserts that the risk of death from [untreated] COVID is greater than vaccine risk (https://tinyurl.com/st4fk34v). However, in the period Jun 26-Jul 9, about 4,000 deaths following the shots were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), while 3,000 U.S. COVID deaths were reported by Worldometer. Statistics are problematic, especially because of  diagnostic uncertainties involving the cycle threshold of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests that have been used as the primary test to diagnose millions of COVID cases (tinyurl.com/2rz82w9m). 

If the virus were the threat, and saving lives the object, all available weapons would be used, especially early treatment, and  open discussion and accurate reporting would be required. It appears instead that the virus is the ally of those who want to destroy the keystone of freedom, and to rule over a compliant population that dutifully shows up for its periodic booster.

“There will be NO return to the old normal”—say Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and Dr. Tedros of the World Health Organization (tinyurl.com/55u4bvw). The anointed experts will rule, with the aid of the profiteers, once the keystone crumbles.


Showdown

A showdown is imminent for thousands or millions of once-“essential” workers, who have been serving the public since the beginning of the pandemic, if they decline to take the jab. “Once heroes, we’re now zeroes.” Religious freedom is gone in Washington State, denied by Gov. Inslee; 295 state troopers may be fired (tinyurl.com/efzype77). Health and privacy concerns are irrelevant; millions of veteran nurses may be lost (https://tinyurl.com/2dcxpypu). As many as half of front-line workers have declined the jab (https://tinyurl.com/mkvwpecz). No more free speech: Biden allies are instructing cell phone carriers to censor anti-vaccine texts (https://tinyurl.com/d8cfvknn).

Disinfection by Light: Israel’s Ichilov Hospital is the first to use the J. Protect system, made by Israeli start-up Juganu, to disinfect spaces, starting in the imaging departments. Lower-level UV-A can be used while people are present, and UV-C when the room is empty, to deactivate all bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including COVID-1, in less than one hour. The technology, called  The Foam, goes directly into pre-existing light fixtures and can be used in any enclosed space (https://tinyurl.com/n8uk4r99).


HHS Disrupting Monoclonal Antibodies Use: After demonizing nearly every medication with the potential to reduce the severity of COVID-19 symptoms, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) finally recommended monoclonal antibodies earlier this summer. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis opened infusion centers, and hospitalizations declined 20%. Centers were able to order as much as they needed. But now a federal commission will decide when, if, and how much a center can get (tinyurl.com/3xcfykvp).

America just lost a valiant warrior for freedom and ethical medicine to COVID. At age 86, ENT surgeon Bud Goltry was still operating, and fighting corporate medicine in Boise, Idaho, virtually single-handed. He wrote to AAPS on Aug 8 about “The Deadly Politicization of America’s Medical Care,” and on Aug 7 about “The Injection Fraud: a Sane Person’s Guidebook to the Global Pandemic.” Dr. Goltry served as president of AAPS in 1998. His introduction of Yuri Maltsev at the 1995 meeting in Boise is preserved at https://tinyurl.com/5rwrkbpa.


“The FDA protects the big drug companies, and is subsequently rewarded, and using the government’s police powers, they attack those who threaten the big drug companies.  People think that the FDA is protecting them.  It isn’t.  What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as day and night.”

Herbert Ley,  Jr., M.D., FDA Commissioner, 1968-1969


Informational Flooding

This pervasive new internet propaganda tool (https://tinyurl.com/xzy2c3kh) is illustrated well in the reports on calls about ivermectin to poison control centers. Suddenly we see hundreds of articles on so-called “ivermectin poisoning.” Indeed, we see more articles published than there were telephone calls in August on ivermectin to poison control centers in the entire nation. We are asked to believe that six telephone calls to poison control about ivermectin, none of which led to hospitalization, are somehow newsworthy, yet more than 100,000 calls to poison control on Tylenol each year are not. Moreover, no one dies of ivermectin in a typical year, yet Tylenol accounts for 56,000 annual emergency room visits, 2,600 hospitalizations, and almost 500 deaths. Is a new expensive drug about to be launched?

To recognize informational flooding, look for the number of copycat stories (https://tinyurl.com/sket9uf4).


Massive Reporting Fraud

According to former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, now banned from social media, vaccine adverse reactions are grossly underreported. Moderna received 300,000 reports of side effects over a 3-month period following the launch of its COVID-19 shot, according to an internal report from IQVIA, a company that helps drugmakers manage clinical trials. Its “Q2 2021 update” was labeled “Confidential – For internal distribution only.” 

In 2021, the number of COVID shots administered so far (309 million) is roughly the same as all other vaccines administered in 2020 (316 million). But 36 times more deaths were reported this year from COVID shots than were reported last year from all other vaccines combined. Independent researcher Virginia Stoner suggests that death may be one of the most underreported vaccine injuries of all—the victim may not have a relative or doctor who knows about VAERS and is willing to go through the onerous process of filing a report.

A letter from Doctors for COVID Ethics states that official sources from the EU, UK, U.S., and Switzerland report a combined 34,052 COVID-19 injection-related deaths and more than 5.46 million injuries reported as of Aug 1.

“The Signal of Harm is now indisputably overwhelming, and, in line with universally accepted ethical standards for clinical trials, Doctors for Covid Ethics demands that the ‘Covid’ vaccine programme be halted immediately.”

Despite the dearth of negative media reports and the censorship on social media,  the public has become increasingly skeptical. States have administered 52 million fewer doses than have been distributed to them (https://tinyurl.com/9hae5cv4).

FDA Approval Bait and Switch

The announcement that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now “fully approved” by the FDA was immediately followed by the Biden Administration’s call for mandates—but in fact this product was instead granted an extension of its EUA (https://tinyurl.com/ethr29j9). Approval was granted to the “nearly identical” but legally different BioNTech product labeled Comirnaty, which is not yet available. Comirnaty is supposed to follow  the “gene therapy” checklist of 5-year follow-up studies, specifically for myocarditis, stated Dr. Robert Malone in an interview with Steve Bannon (https://tinyurl.com/4rs2cmwm).

It is puzzling that FDA took this action despite the fact that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted for CDC to recommend Pfizer at its Aug 30 meeting. They did so without considering the CDC data on waning immunity and variants that were presented to the panel AFTER the vote was taken. They did not discuss safety signals showing 176 times the number of deaths/person vaccinated compared with flu vaccines.

In particular, Army Regulation 40-562 (AR 40-562) “provides documented survivors of an infection, a presumptive medical exemption from vaccination because of the natural immunity acquired as a result of having survived the infection.”  The action is a class action on behalf of active-duty and reserve service members (https://tinyurl.com/pd5enrbn).

Although Dr. van Boven prevailed on every point in the complaints brought against him, the TMB refused to withdraw its unjustified, disparaging adverse entry, which continues to harm the doctor. “A Data Bank entry lasts forever, or until it is voided,” writes AAPS. “Sovereign immunity does not apply when state government officials misinterpret, misapply, or misrepresent their powers Properly pleaded ultra vires suits do not implicate sovereign immunity because they do not attempt to exert control over the state but, instead, attempt to reassert control of the state over one of its agents.

Sports medicine physician Jeremy Henrichs, who is an elected  member of the Mahomet-Seymour Board of Education and is on the faculty of the University of Illinois Carle College of Medicine, is being subjected to an investigation by the medical licensure board for alleged unprofessional conduct. The issue appears to be his opinion on a school masking mandate. Illinois Sen. Chapin Rose filed a complaint with the Office of the Executive Inspector General (OEIG) asking for an investigation of the investigation.

Intimidating a public official is a potentially criminal activity, “part of a pattern of abuse of power that the Pritzker administration is undertaking to tamp out any dissent,” Rose said. “Who knows how many others will have their licenses threatened” in fields such as insurance, real estate, and banking “unless they vote with the governor?” (https://tinyurl.com/74m8wtn7).

 “Time to End Excuses and Issue Mandates.”  The people who are so eager to impose their will on others are now using the word “refusenik.” Liberal political commentator Eugene Robinson declares that now that FDA has “fully authorized” Pfizer’s vaccine (sic), “the last remotely plausible rationalization for refusing to get vaccinated is gone.” If patriotism won’t convince reluctant Americans, “maybe the threat of not being able to work, go to school or lead anything like a normal life will do the trick.” Robinson writes that some of the “refuseniks” are following “looney bin advice” to take ivermectin.

No Control. To give any young person a coronavirus vaccine should be considered malpractice and a crime against humanity, because they do not spread COVID significantly, are at almost zero risk of serious disease or death from it, if sick can get early effective treatment (in the face of determined opposition from organized medicine and political forces because vaccines cannot get EUA if there is an effective treatment)—and yet mandates are exploding all over the country. Some suggest that what appears to be an irrational, inexplicable phenomenon—a desperate push to get every single human vaccinated—may be an effort to eliminate any large “control” group of never vaccinated so their health can not be compared with the vaccinated. The original control groups in the mRNA vaccine trials have begun to be vaccinated, as the companies making them (and untold billions of dollars) argue that it is “unethical” to leave some unvaccinated and vulnerable.

Worse than the Disease? Increasingly, vaccine manufacturers and government officials are following the sarcastic maxim from Samuel Shem’s novel of medical residency, The House of God: “If you don’t take a temperature you can’t find a fever.” In other words, if we don’t critically look at the actual recorded patient damage, we won’t find our products to be defective (tinyurl.com/m38p7ats). Before taking these genetic agents, do  your research: see wonder.cdc.gov/vaers.html.

AAPS News August 2021 – Apartheid 2.0

Share:

Volume 77, no. 8  August 2021

The basis of the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory, which  have invaded American education and the American Medical Association, hold that America is founded on the unforgiveable sin of racism, and that our unprecedented phenomenal progress and prosperity was built on the backs of African slaves. American-style apartheid—Jim Crow laws—then left a legacy that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and decades of Affirmative Action did not repair.

America’s success in world history is unique. But what was a  “peculiar institution” early in our history was unexceptionable in most of the world for most of human history. The Roman economy was built on slavery. From 10 to 25 percent of the population was enslaved (Commentary, June 2021, tinyurl.com/36vvnxxc).

The Mayans, Incans, and Aztecs enslaved subjugated populations. African rulers traded slaves with Muslims, other Africans, and later Europeans. Only 9.7% of the Atlantic slave trade involved England’s North American colonies; 90.3% of African slaves were shipped to South America and the Caribbean. While 12 million West Africans were shipped by Europeans to the Americas, more than 17 million East Africans were shipped by Arabs into the Middle East (https://tinyurl.com/3y5c38c4).

This is irrelevant to CRT because slavery is not the issue—if it were, we would hear about the slavery that still exists. CRT insists that all problems within the black community were caused by whites, that whites are responsible for solving them, and that virtually all white people contribute to or benefit from racism (“white privilege”). Cultural characteristics that have led to prosperity in all races and ethnic groups—strong families, work ethic, individual responsibility, respect for learning—are called “whiteness.”

“Inclusiveness” may exclude or demean whites. Segregation is fine on some campuses—as long it is whites who are kept out.

The 1619 premise is that every concept, document, and institution that shapes and guides America was designed to promote slavery and therefore must be eradicated to atone for centuries of racial oppression, writes Scot Faulkner (ibid.).

What Happens after Apartheid?

In South Africa, apartheid officially ended in the early 1990s. An era of peace and equality did not follow.

The number of  whites killed by blacks after Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress (ANC) came to power in 1994—about 80,000—exceeds the number of blacks killed by whites during 48 years of apartheid—around 20,000, mostly during revolutions and war. The number of white farmers has decreased from around 60,000 to 30,000, mostly because those who could flee, did so. Under ANC rule, about 400,000 blacks have  been murdered, mostly by other blacks (tinyurl.com/8cwjwcpa).

When apartheid ended, unemployment was 5%. It is now closer to 45%. With the continuing outmigration of skilled whites and Indians, there will not be enough skilled manpower to run a modern economy (https://tinyurl.com/ysa7c9d5).

The country is “grappling with change,” writes Rachel Jones (National Geographic 4/26/19).

Riots erupted recently after former president Jacob Zuma, a Zulu, was jailed for contempt of court. South-Africa-born columnist Ilana Mercer, who warned of the evil consequences of the Afro-American progressive multicultural society foisted on her native land by the West, writes on July 17 that she sees a ray of hope. Unlike in America, South African authorities are now arresting rioters, not “right-wingers,” and 25,000 soldiers were deployed to quell unrest. “Ruling elites came out with powerful declarations of shared moral values. There was no…allusion to systemic racism. The system of apartheid was not conjured from the past as causality for criminality” (https://tinyurl.com/9hsrbd92).

Others are less optimistic. Revolver News writes that “the specter of doom hangs over South Africa”—which it calls the first country built on CRT. Acting on the assumption that if outcomes differ between two racial groups, the cause must be racism, and the remedy direct intervention to correct “injustice,” the result is Zimbabwe (https://tinyurl.com/7ssa38ef).

CRT will not achieve a thriving society with the former “oppressed” trading places with the alleged “oppressors,” or a classless society that achieves equality. In South Africa, there appear to be two worlds: The commoners—the black, white, and Hindu middle and lower classes live in cities like Verulam and Durban, where barbaric riots erupt, and the residents have to fend for themselves against enraged black mobs. The top elite live in fortified places like West Cape Town, from which they warn against blaming looters or using words such as “right” and “wrong” (https://tinyurl.com/4ardmcwt).

The New Apartheid

Racial disharmony is increasing, and a new form of divisiveness has arisen. One can’t be excluded for being black. One can, however, be barred from normal living for not accepting a still-experimental jab—but not for a lifelong HIV-positive status, or for being a hepatitis b carrier, or for being an unscreened migrant from a country teeming with exotic contagious diseases.

What is really going on, as the economy, the currency, the natural hierarchy, meritocracy, and the middle class are being destroyed? Will the ultimate apartheid be a dependent, compliant, culled underclass, with factions warring against each other, while the 0.0001% re-engineer the One World to serve their desires?


Critical Theory

CRT derives from Critical Theory (CT), the Western-Marxist philosophy developed in Germany in the 1930s and brought to the U.S. in the 1970s in the Frankfurt School. It holds that ideology is the principal obstacle to human liberation. CRT  exchanges the two traditional Marxist classes, capital and labor,  for oppressive structural racism and oppressed minorities, primarily blacks. This is the classical Marxist strategy of fomenting class, or racial, warfare, which creates “insuperable barriers to mutual understanding.” Its goals include abolition of property in land and all rights of inheritance; centralization of credit and the means of communication and transport; and an educational dictatorship. CRT = Marxist racism (tinyurl.com/369vjxye).


NYC to Exclude Blacks by Vaccine Passport

On Sep 13, when New York City implements its vaccine passport, 72% of young blacks may be denied both service and the right to work in gyms, restaurants, and theaters. Only 28% of black New Yorkers aged 18 to 44 years are vaccinated, compared with 48% of Latino residents and 52% of white residents in that age group (https://tinyurl.com/ssmdmwaj).

Jazmine Shavuo-Goodwin, a 31-year-old black clinic manager explained her hesitancy, reaffirmed by the pause on the Johnson & Johnson shot. “It just shows black lives don’t matter. You can test that on us just like you tested syphilis on us.” One restaurant manager said he expects businesses to ignore the rule en masse (https://tinyurl.com/47yd35ks).


Cancelled by CRT

“Culturally Responsive” learning and teaching in Rhode Island middle schools has removed writings of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Julius Caesar, Macbeth, The Diary of Anne Frank or any teaching about the Holocaust, The Crucible, poetry by Maya Angelou or Robert Frost, and any book or short story from the literary canon (https://tinyurl.com/4vvkb663).


Remember the Alamo?

Defenders of the Alamo, like warriors at Thermopylae and the Boers who defended the line at Magersfontein, stood their ground since they believed that they defended something worth defending, to the point of dying for it. The Spartans under king Leonidas held the pass for only three days—but the Persian invasion was repulsed within a year at Salamis and Plataea. The Boers delivered a major defeat to the British at Magersfontein, and though Britain won the Boer War, it marked the beginning of questions about the power of the British Empire.

The Alamo has long been viewed as paving the way to the independence of Texas. Now, revisionist historians in Forget the Alamo portray it as a myth, and the Texans’ battle as being about colonialism, white supremacy, slavery, racism, and oppression of noble Latinos (tinyurl.com/4fb8uk37)—not worth defending.

Vaccination Questions

Blood Donation: The spike protein coded for by COVID-19 jabs is supposed to attach to receptors at the injection site, travel to local lymph nodes, or be disposed of in the liver. It is, however, found to be circulating in the blood (tinyurl.com/4bcjh4p3). Spike protein by itself is damaging, warns Dr. Byram Bridle and suggests that donated blood might be dangerous (https://tinyurl.com/3fcz9w46). Manufacturers state that their vaccine’s protein differs from the virus’s and is actually protective (tinyurl.com/6rmkcew). The Red Cross is not restricting donations from those who know what brand they received,  but it will not accept convalescent plasma (tinyurl.com/4k2kfp6d).

Distribution of Lipid Nanoparticles: Pfizer data obtained by Japanese regulators shows that vaccine components peak in the blood in about 2 hours, are mostly gone in 48 hours, but accumulate in bone marrow and ovaries ( (https://tinyurl.com/3tnztach, at around 36 minutes).

How Long Does Spike Protein Circulate? In 6 of 6 randomly  selected patients, all still had circulating spike protein after 5 months; one had it in 15% of his monocytes. It could last for years; we don’t know (https://tinyurl.com/4pbydpw). Dr. Anthony Kyriakopoulos told Dr. Peter McCullough that he believes 50-60% of vaccinated people will develop cancers, autoimmune disorders, or viral illnesses because of persistent mRNA or incorporation into the genome (tinyurl.com/28b392w2).


CRT: Not in China

China believes that unity, defined by harmonized language, race, and coerced allegiance—not diversity—is strength. Its authoritarian communist government suppresses any hint of unrest, unlike the American airing of the rioting, looting, arson, and protests. Most consider China a xenophobic and racist nation. Its colonizing and overseas emissaries are about as welcome as the Soviet operatives of the 1950s. Africa is tiring of both insidious and overt Chinese racism, both in its major cities at home and among its corporate legionaries abroad, writes Victor Davis Hanson. China has many weaknesses, and “as long as the U.S. Constitution is not tampered with, America enjoys the stability and resilience of the world’s oldest constitutional and consensual system [emphasis added]”  (https://tinyurl.com/d69mnd34).

The Master Race is Han Chinese, in Beijing’s view, and Africans are portrayed as subhuman (tinyurl.com/ep8var25).

Hanson’s optimistic view ignores America’s dependence on China for drugs, and the pandemic’s devastation. What are the prospects for the required “return of financial solvency, a renewed national unity and appreciation of American singularity?”

ACTION OF THE MONTH

If you offer early treatment for COVID-19 by protocol similar to those at c19protocols.com, please add your name to a list we are compiling to help patients at bit.ly/covidearlytx.


Animal Farm’ in Canada

Dr. Brian Day of Cambie Surgeries Corp. in British Columbia has been in court since 2009 on the constitutionality of provisions in the Medicare Protection Act restricting private care.

The date shows “how much politicking has occurred,” writes Ian Mulgrew (Vancouver Sun 6/23/21, tinyurl.com/767tkxs6). “The B.C. Court of Appeal has an unenviable job of parsing the 880-page decision” handed down by Judge John Steeves last September (AAPS News, November 2020).

The province besmirched the reputation of Dr. Day and colleagues as greedy, money-grubbing doctors out to destroy medicare—despite the $200 million in support to public health and education that Cambie Surgeries has provided.

Dr. Jacques Chaoulli, who won his similar case in the Supreme Court of Canada, was so despondent about the minimalist response from the Quebec government that he left the country and now practices in France. He believes, Mulgrew writes, that Canada is controlled by lobby groups and the ideology that it is socially unacceptable for those with more money to have better access to care. Patient care in France is far better than in Canada, Dr. Chaoulli told him, because the French system is not monopolistic and has both public and private care.

The province’s response to Dr. Day’s appeal is “Animal Farm, not a legal response to the complaints that Steeves made factual errors, applied the wrong legal test, and confused the relevant jurisprudence.”


COVID-Related Litigation

Indiana University Students: A federal district judge denied the motion in Klaassen v. Trustees of Indiana University to put IU’s vaccination mandate on hold while litigation proceeds (https://tinyurl.com/sracsnke), as did the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Justice Amy Coney Barrett declined to consider the emergency appeal to the Supreme Court (tinyurl.com/47hu2dhy). 

Alberta Drops COVID Restrictions: After being fined $1,200 dollars for protesting against the COVID  restrictions, Patrick King represented himself in court and issued a subpoena to the Provincial Health Minister for proof that the COVID-19 virus exists. Since the government did not respond, the court ruled that government had no legal grounds to impose any such restrictions. On July 28, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw rescinded them and officially treats COVID-19 in the same way as other respiratory viruses (tinyurl.com/3s7dmdz9). Lockdown advocates quickly attacked this decision. Other provinces are developing vaccine passports (tinyurl.com/sr5jahau).

Law Professor Sues George Mason University: Todd Zywicki is suing GMU over its COVID-19 vaccine mandate, arguing that because he has recovered from the virus and has antibodies, the vaccine is unnecessary and that he is at higher risk of serious adverse effects (https://tinyurl.com/j8zvwyr2).

Dr. Stella Immanuel Sues CNN:  After she spoke in favor of early treatment of COVID-19 at a press conference called by America’s Frontline Doctors, Anderson Cooper and CNN, according to the complaint, “published a series of statements of fact about Dr. Immanuel that injured her reputation and exposed her to public hatred.” Among other things, they falsely attributed to her statements, e.g., about “alien DNA,” that she never made.   The lawsuit argues that CNN’s “false and defamatory” statements   exposed her to contempt, ridicule, and financial injury, and asks for $100 million in damages. Additionally, it declares that “by targeting and attacking Dr. Immanuel, CNN effectively caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands whose lives would have been spared if they had been treated early with HCQ [hydroxychloroquine]” (tinyurl.com/u58fbsyw).

Minor Consent: Children’s Health Defense and Parental Rights Foundation have filed a lawsuit on behalf of four parents challenging the D.C. Minor Consent for Vaccination Act. The Act allows children 11 years of age and older to consent to vaccinations without the parents’ knowledge or consent and against the parents’ express written religious exemption. The Act contains multiple provisions to deceive parents (tinyurl.com/ybu388rt).


Freedom of Speech under Attack

Dr. Peter McCullough Sued by Former Employer: In the context of his recommending early out-patient sequential multidrug therapy for COVID-19 (tinyurl.com/4thc6xut), Dr. McCullough was sued for more than $1 million by his former employer for alleged unauthorized mention of his previous affiliation. At this time, nearly 8,000 have signed an AAPS letter supporting him (https://bit.ly/standwithpmc).

Criticism of Scientists Compared to a Hate Crime: Baylor professor Peter Hotez is calling on Congress to criminalize attacks on scientists—such as Anthony Fauci, not Peter McCullough: “We must take steps to protect our scientists and take swift and positive action to counter the growing wave of far-right antiscience aggression” (tinyurl.com/akbcsh8w). Not a word about Big Tech censorship of clinical trials or even repeating CDC statements on vaccines. In a Jul 28 article in PLOS Biology, Hotez writes: “Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) has introduced a bill known as the Scientific Integrity Act of 2021 (H.R. 849) to protect US Government scientists from political interference, but this needs to be extended for scientists at private research universities and institutes. Still another possibility is to extend federal hate-crime protections” (https://tinyurl.com/xvm8nkb7).


No Consent Required, Says DOJ

In a memorandum opinion, Dawn Johnson, Acting Assistant Attorney General, writes: “We conclude that section 564 of the FDCA [Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act] does not prohibit public or private entities from imposing vaccination requirements, even when the only vaccines available are those authorized under [Emergency Use Authorizations] EUAs” (tinyurl.com/v6dkcnx9).

“They tie themselves in knots to explain why the clear language of the EUA statute doesn’t mean what it says,” comments AAPS business manager Jeremy Snavely.

The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) points out that federal agencies have historically interpreted Section 564 as a prohibition on mandates of EUA products. Long-settled legal precedent establishes that it is not legal to coerce an individual to accept an experimental product. “It would be illogical that Congress would require that individuals be informed of a freedom of choice if that choice is illusory at the whim of any public or private entity.” ICAN urges the DOJ to revise its Slip Opinion (https://tinyurl.com/3mnup35w).

Socialism in New York. Even before socialist India Walton won the mayoral primary in Buffalo, the socialism experiment had begun in Albany, according to the Buffalo News. The six democratic socialists, who are prodding the legislature further to the left, “helped press major tax hikes” for “big funding increases ‘to be distributed to the working class’ in the form of higher education and health care spending.” The democratic socialists “are aligned with working people and movements and don’t want to sell out our resources to the richest people.” Also, they are proud to be part of the “Borg”: they acknowledge that “we have to work together” and “we are not individuals.” People who actually work for a living should be afraid.

The New Memory Hole Age. As Roger Kimball points out, “We used to think that the Taliban’s habit of destroying important cultural artifacts was a mark of barbarism. Now, we’ve learned that it is an avant-garde gesture, and is, therefore, commendable” (tinyurl.com/hs4tazku). The Taliban, according to Sahil Mahtani, figured out that “public statues are not politically neutral. They are statements about who and what we honor as a society…. We’ve learned that our commitment to liberalism and free speech was outmoded…. [and] that the Afghan dogmatism that we wrote off as medieval was, in fact, the future” (https://tinyurl.com/5xcrps8r).

Americans Think They Want Socialism. In 1982, there were only 6,000 members of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). In 2017, a Gallup poll showed that 44% of millennials said they wanted to live in a socialist nation. In 2018, 33% of Americans answering a Gallup poll said that socialism is a “society with equal standing for everybody, in which benefits and services were free for all.” In truth, we certainly did not have equal standing in Romania; we were serfs to the omnipotent government. There were no benefits at all, simply hard work and a meal after standing in line for hours each day. There is a vast difference between asking for more welfare in the Nordic model of social welfare paid for by the private capitalist sector, and a socialist republic where the means of production are owned by a totalitarian government. Americans on the left are far too ignorant to understand history and economics; they are too busy demolishing monuments and installing statues of criminals as role models instead.

 A French-style Revolution in America? Perhaps not yet on the windowsill of the Overton Window, the French Revolution was many things unfolding at once: inflation soaring to the point commoners could no longer afford bread; replacing the state-religion nexus with Enlightenment rationalism;  fragmentation of the social and political orders into warring factions; failure of the Monarchy’s institutions to understand the potentially fatal challenges and institute reforms that addressed the problems; and failure of the French economy. The parallels to 2020 America are obvious.

HCQ ‘Stress Test.’ In the RECOVERY trial [often cited as showing “no benefit” from hydroxychloroquine in COVID-10], in those patients whose doctors thought HCQ was safe and enrolled them, with detailed monitoring and scrutiny, HCQ at very high doses was safe even in this very ill population—the trial’s  most important conclusion. There should be no more regulatory warnings or concerns regarding HCQ safety in those selected for COVID-19 therapy by doctors, although when patients are that close to death HCQ and probably other drugs directed against viral replication are far too late. Cytokine storm, thrombosis, and complications are probably the determinants of death.

AAPS News July 2021 – Surfside & Weimar: Metaphor & Prologue

Share:

Volume 77, no. 7  July 2021

More than 100 residents were sleeping comfortably in their $600,000 apartments in the 12-story Champlain Towers in Surfside, Florida, when the building suddenly collapsed, burying the residents in the rubble. There had been indications of problems for a time—such as exposed rebar in concrete columns, or a balcony that looked slanted (https://tinyurl.com/xxcjptd6). The town is built on a barrier island, which is made of a loose mixture of sand and mud.  Geologists have long warned that these islands cannot be developed responsibly (tinyurl.com/5yfvxjf2). The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s (https://tinyurl.com/32h74hvx). We don’t know exactly why the collapse occurred when it did—or the risk to the other $3 trillion worth of similar developments.

Is this a metaphor for the U.S., whose moral foundations, industry, and currency have been eroding and sinking for decades?

As the Fed is creating trillions of dollars out of nothing, and people are beginning to notice rising prices and a declining standard of living, the specter of Weimar hyperinflation looms. But there was much more to Weimar—and we must not forget that it was Weimar that led to the rise of Hitler.

Past Is Prologue

The American musical Cabaret portrays a highly sanitized version of Weimar craziness and debauchery. The German public became fed up with filth under the pretext of “sexual freedom” and voted for a party that promised a return to moral sanity.

 In the opinion of a German immigrant who has extensively read the history of the era, most Americans never learned the truth about Weimar because the American historians who wrote about it were the refugees of the Weimar Regime or their descendants. Arguably, Cultural Marxism, which has become the ruling ideology in academia and other institutions, is Weimar’s toxic gift. 

Weimar was not an enlightened pure democracy that was destroyed by fascists. Paul Bookbinder is one of the few American historians to acknowledge the bad choices made by Weimar politicians and elites (https://tinyurl.com/234ufrh8).

Although he was publishing in liberal post-war Germany, Karl Dietrich Bracher (Die Auflösung der Weimarer Republik: eine Studie zum Problem des Machtverfalls in der Demokratie) was able to point out the inconvenient  truth that the German people were simply appalled by Weimar politicians who pushed fringe liberal ideas (like degenerate arts and the normalization of perversions) while promoting big liberal government as “solutions” to the many economic and cultural crises. For instance, archetypal Weimar leader Heinrich Bruning responded to increasing poverty by increasing taxes, freeing violent offenders from prisons, and calling for legal protection of pedophilia and transvestitism.  These things had no mass support but pleased the German liberal elites. One can argue that by enacting so many fringe policies Bruning was an unwilling helper of Hitler’s rise to power.

Historian Fritz Fischer gained popularity in early West Germany with a theory that provided an excuse for Nazism as an “inevitable event caused by fate” (Sonderweg). Even he presented the Weimar Republic as an asylum run by the inmates.

Hans-Ulrich Wehler, one of the founders of the Bielefeld School of Historical Analysis, aggressively promoted the Sonderweg theory, but uniquely noted that Weimar was a Potemkin Village or façade from behind which the Elites were ruling the “peasantry” mercilessly, while pretending to embrace “modern ideas.”

Hans Mommsen and Fritz Stern, although Cultural Marxists, are good sources of facts about the Weimar establishment. Both confirm the existence of the movement within the Weimar penitentiary system to literally coddle sexual predators, since they were considered to be “true victims of society.”

Does any of this sound familiar?

If the American Republic collapses, will there be a Sonderweg theory to excuse those passive, well-off, open-minded persons who could have done something, but didn’t?

Phony War of the Elites

American “peasants” may be in the streets or at rallies, but are they truly represented by either political party?

It appears that Democrats want to change decorations (get new flag and new anthem, destroy old monuments and possibly replace them with St. George Floyd, etc.); change ideology (replace the American Way with Critical Race Theory and LGBTQ cult); change religion (from Christianity—when Islam didn’t work out, replace it with Wokeism); expand entitlements but not work opportunities; and defund police. Republicans would keep the decorations and possibly add trendy new ones; replace ideology with hypocrisy (outwardly keep American Way but block industry and upward mobility); maintain pseudoreligion (keep some outward forms but abandon the faith and tolerate the intolerable, such as seduction of children); cut entitlements without allowing work opportunities to desperate people; and militarize the police.

The left-wing upper middle class, mostly the professional managerial class, and the right-wing upper middle class both expect to preserve the economic status quo for themselves. Those not in the commanding heights are deeply divided: those who revere the old Republic vs. those who oppose or are uninterested in its restoration.  Angelo Codevilla asks, “Is it possible to rescue and re-found our Republic?” (https://tinyurl.com/yy9ye2mp).


Re-founding a Nation

If a large enough proportion of a people is alienated, the body politic loses the capacity to act as a whole. Resetting the country on its original principles—or outright resuscitation—amounts to re-founding a nation, and as Machiavelli wrote that is much more difficult than founding one in the first place. Codevilla (ibid.) notes the enormity of the problem:

“The changes that have taken place in the bipartisan ruling class that controls nearly all our institutions have explicitly denied and denigrated what had made America itself. Today’s ruling class leads and even forces Americans to act, speak, and think as if all that they had thought good were bad, and vice versa. Almost as if a vengeful power had conquered the country.”

There are historical examples of nations rescued and re-founded, most of which involve overthrowing the dominion of foreigners rather than of mutated ruling classes. [Americans might recognize an external threat even if the current Administration has deep ties to it. China, for example, is apparently building 100 new ICBM silos (https://tinyurl.com/2k6w7xm5).]

But “rescuing disrespected constitutions has always required …undoing any number of enemies.” And “lost civic virtue is almost as unrecoverable as lost virginity.”

Silent secession by alienated individuals, the tacit hemorrhage of legitimacy, dooms regimes—but does not by itself re-found.

“Federalism as never before” is key to successful restoration.


The Fed’s ‘Doom Loop’

America is in the throes of virulent underlying inflation, writes David Stockman (tinyurl.com/5adpma3w). In financial markets, it has already fostered huge asset bubbles and a massive shift of wealth to the tippy-top of the economic ladder. Now, soaring prices for everyday goods and services threaten main street jobs, incomes, and hard-earned savings. With unbridled furious money printing, the Fed’s balance sheet has ballooned from the historic 3-5% of GDP and post-dotcom crash of 6.5% to 37%. There is roaring inflation in stocks, bonds, housing prices,  baseball cards, and other collectibles. Through financial fraud, the Fed is the most profitable private company in the world. Over three decades, the financial assets of the top 1% increased 9.5 times, while that of the bottom 50% only 4.3 times, with most of the paper gains trapped in their homes.

Fed chairman Jerome Powell insists that the Fed’s money-pumping madness has nothing to do with America’s rapidly metastasizing wealth disparities, but that is blatant sophistry, Stockman says. The coming inflation will hurt the poor far more.

“The Fed’s perverse redistribution of wealth to the top will also elicit a populist revulsion against the rich, which, in turn, threatens punitive taxation of the very producers and risk-takers who make capitalist prosperity possible. Indeed, Washington is threatening the golden goose like rarely before.”


“For several decades political arrests were distinguished in our country precisely by the fact that people were guilty of nothing and were therefore unprepared to put up any resistance whatsoever…. A person who is not inwardly prepared for the use of violence against him is always weaker than the person committing the violence.”

She points to the lack of critical thinking and the erosion of the rule of law and morality.

‘Surprise’ Billing Rules Published

Interim final rules for the bipartisan No Surprises Act have requirements for opting out of the balance billing ban, which is only allowed in certain non-emergency situations, beginning at  the bottom of page 124 of 411 (tinyurl.com/m3j7kdkd). The rules go into effect in 2022.

HHS claims that it is “important that these consumer protections do not present a barrier to obtaining out-of-network care, when an individual knowingly seeks out such care.” However, the requirements are quite detailed and must be presented at least three hours before a service is rendered. Consumers must be made aware that “payment made by the individual might not accrue toward meeting any limitation that the plan or coverage places on cost sharing, including an explanation that the payment might not apply to an in-network deductible or out-of-pocket
maximum under the plan or coverage.”

Providers and facilities will need to translate the standard notice-and-consent documents into the 15 languages most common in the area. If the patient prefers oral communication, a qualified interpreter must be provided.

As an article in the Buffalo News points out, the required form tells patients, “If you sign this form, you may pay more because you are giving up your protections under federal law.”

Dr. Lawrence Huntoon writes: “Regardless of the exact process that will be used to determine a ‘fair’ price for services, fees will undoubtedly be pegged to the Medicare Resource-Based Relative Value Scale (RBRVS) system via some percentage, as HMOs do now. RBRVS, of course, is based on Marxist labor theory.

“Insurers already discriminate against out-of-network physicians by covering substantially less of the bill. Now that insurers will essentially have complete control over all fees, this discrimination will likely be enhanced.

“I strongly suspect that HHS will judge all patients who presents to an ED as ‘emergencies’ so that the waiver will not apply.  But its use will cause undue delay in treatment or put the physician at high risk of termination of privileges if he abides by the required delay of three hours before treating the patient.

“This new law was absolutely designed to eliminate independent practice by out-of-network physicians.”


‘By Any Means Necessary’

The Florida law, SB 2006, which prevents companies and organizations operating there from requiring “vaccine passports” also contains this provision: “If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.”

“Any order of the State Health Official given to effectuate this paragraph is immediately enforceable by a law enforcement officer under s. 381.0012” (https://tinyurl.com/ypkvtv77).


Canadian Physicians Persecuted

Physicians insisting on informed consent for giving COVID jabs to children and adolescents are having their ability to work terminated by organized medicine—despite the World Health Organization’s statement that children under 18 should not get the shot. Five physicians are interviewed by Dr. Sam Dubé (https://tinyurl.com/upnr5cf8). Of special interest at the end of the video is a secret audio recording of the inquisition of Dr. Francis Christian, who is being urged to take advantage of “physician health” resources to cope with the distress he must be feeling as his professional life is being destroyed. Remember the history of Soviet psychiatric “hospitals.” 


Tip of the Month: Granting multiple medical exemptions from the COVID vaccine can result in unfair harassment by medical boards, and the medical exemptions may not be accepted by employers and universities. One state medical board is already harassing a good physician about this, and demanding medical records about the patients. This retaliation occurs despite reports that the second dose of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s products has caused heart inflammation in college-aged students. The religious exemption is more difficult for an employer or college to reject.


Largest Healthcare Union Fights Mandatory Jab

The president of 1199SEIU,  which represents hundreds of thousands, announced that the organization would fight mandates for COVID-19 injections, whether by a legal or a purely organizational challenge. New York-Presbyterian Hospital is mandating employee jabs. The New York State Nurses Association also issued a statement opposing mandates (tinyurl.com/3vfrhdzp).


French, UK Groups Call for Stopping Jabs

A regional independent drug assessment center, the CTIAP (Centre territorial d’Information indépendante et d’Avis pharmaceutiques), has stated that COVID jabs were submitted to insufficient clinical testing, and that the quality of the active substances, their excipients, and the manufacturing processes are problematic.

“Prudence would even dictate that, in all countries where these vaccines against COVID-19 have been marketed, all the batches thus ‘released’ should be withdrawn immediately; and that these [marketing authorizations] that have been granted should be suspended, or even canceled, …until further notice.”

All are “subject to further studies that reach as far as 2024 and even beyond, and these will be almost impossible to be completed because of the way the vaccines are now being distributed,”  said the CTIAP report. Releasing these products is like launching a car manufacturing line without testing quality of the parts, such as the brakes (https://tinyurl.com/32s2tyys).

The Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy based in the UK, in a report to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), states the MHRA now has more than enough evidence from the Yellow Card system “to declare the COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for use in humans” (tinyurl.com/wdn25nt2).


Are Colleges, Employers Liable?

The William J. Olson law firm requests colleges to commit to assume financial liability for death, disability, or illness of students being required to take the COVID jab. While manufacturers are immune from product liability, those who coerce students or employees to receive it may not be (tinyurl.com/2jmjpefm).

 Vaccine Pass. Originally supposed to be “optional and voluntary,” to cost $2.4 million, and to become obsolete, New York’s  Excelsior Pass has already been used to restrict access to sporting events. The highly secretive “Phase 2”  has shocked even the left-biased Buffalo News. Apparently, it will include “health records, proof of age and driver’s licenses” and create a “new, inescapable web of geolocation tracking, building out a map of our most intimate moments.” The state’s 3-year contract with IBM requires IBM to develop a road map to expand the pass to all 20 million New Yorkers. The total cost could end up being $17 million.

Reflecting on the Frankfurt School, postmodernism, and crit theory, Michael Walsh writes: “Wielding their pseudo-intellectual doctrine of Critical Theory,” men who at first seemed like “a bunch of nutty professors with Dr. Strangelove accents” undertook to “undermine every legal and social American institution, from the family, to traditional sexuality, to academe, pop culture, government, and even the military.” Everything is seen as a “construct,” a plot by the “privileged” against the “oppressed” (https://tinyurl.com/ddwtep9r). Whenever you hear words like “systemic,” “struggle,” “structural,” “change,” “fundamental transformation,” etc., you know you’re dealing with Marxists.

A Foreign Enemy? According to a 2015 dossier produced by the People’s Liberation Army, uncovered by the U.S. State Dept.,  China was preparing for a Third World War with biological weapons, including coronavirus, 6 years ago. Notably, China was the only G20 member whose GDP showed growth in 2020, expanding by 2.3% (https://tinyurl.com/55jwm7d5).

Domestic Enemies. Branded and sold as Democratic Socialism, American Marxism is the fight between corporate technocrats and Americans who love their country. The former are aided by corrupt congressmen and bureaucrats and the woke military, police, teachers, professors, administrators, and media. At the bottom rung are activists and useful idiots. Half of America bought the lie and empty promises of “free stuff,” while the rest get lawlessness, protests, burning, and looting. History shows that law and order disappear prior to the complete societal takeover by tyrants, who  present it as a necessity to quell the lawlessness.

Government Buys ‘Fresh’ Flesh. The Food and Drug Administration has been caught buying tissue from aborted babies who could have survived as preemies. Recent emails uncovered by Judicial Watch between FDA employees and Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) prove the agency spent tens of thousands of dollars between 2012 and 2018 buying aborted babies up to 24 weeks gestation.

AAPS News June 2021 – COVID: Fauci, NIH, et al.

Share:

Volume 77, no. 6  June 2021

The best and perhaps only government oversight mechanism available to the American people—the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)—has yielded more than 3,000 emails sent and received by Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) for decades.

Dr. Fauci is the highest paid of 4 million federal employees including the President, (tinyurl.com/3jnx2jt5), and probably the most revered. Howard Bauchner, M.D., then editor-in-chief of JAMA Network, called him a “national treasure” in September 2020 (https://tinyurl.com/4jp9eyuf). 

Even after the email release, the Biden Administration press secretary Jen Psaki said that Dr. Fauci has been an “undeniable asset in our country’s pandemic response” and there was no intention to “relitigate emails from 17 months ago.” She did not need to circle back when asked whether there was any circumstance under which Biden would fire Fauci: “No!” (https://tinyurl.com/2hdyfyka). Chris Wallace of Fox News was quick to defend Dr. Fauci, claiming that he sees no actual “smoking gun” in the emails and saying that it’s important to “take the politics out of this” (https://tinyurl.com/24tf7rwf).

Donald Trump asserted that the emails show that the SARS-CoV-2 virus came from the Wuhan lab and demanded that “China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused!” (https://tinyurl.com/jwfjfar8). This misses the main point: what did Dr. Fauci and NIH know about research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), and did they help to fund it?

China probably covered up early cases and destroyed evidence. But the Chinese Communist Party was not in charge of the American pandemic response. That would be the responsibility of American officials, acting on NIH “guidance” supported unquestioningly by academics, medical journals, organized medicine, media, Big Tech censors, and corporate-owned hospitals. Firing the 80-year-old mouthpiece, who was busily appearing on television or answering emails after midnight, would accomplish little.

Laura Ingraham’s “Medicine Cabinet”—Harvey Risch, M.D., Ph.D., Peter McCullough, M.D., M.P.H., and Jay Bhattacharya, M.D., Ph.D.—discussed what Dr. Fauci and NIH got wrong on many issues, and the disastrous results (tinyurl.com/2ba7wamh).

Their policies assured maximum casualties by suppressing early at-home treatment with false claims about dangers of hydroxychloroquine, and recommending therapeutic nihilism based on alleged lack of “adequate” evidence. Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci threw evidence-based medicine and cost-benefit analysis overboard in his gyrations on destructive lockdowns and controversial masks, betting the country on an unprecedented vaccine.

Natural or Laboratory Origin?

The idea that SARS-CoV-2 might have escaped from a laboratory was “strongly condemned” as a “conspiracy theory” in a letter to The Lancet on Feb 19, 2020, drafted by a group of virologists led by Peter Daszak, who declared that they had “no competing interests.” Daszak is, however, president of EcoHealth Alliance, which funded research at WIV. EHA received more than $123 million in grants from the federal government from 2017 to 2020, some from NIAID. The Pentagon funneled almost $39 million to the group since 2013 (tinyurl.com/64249kch).

For 20 years virologists have been creating viruses more dangerous than found in nature. Genetic engineering and “gain of function” research is what their laboratories do. Newer methods of cutting and pasting viral genomes, called “no-see-um” or “seamless” approaches, leave no tell-tale marks of manipulation.

At WIV, scientists led by Shi Zheng-li or “Bat Lady” were using methods taught them by Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina to engineer bat coronaviruses to attack other species, often under Biosafety Level 2 conditions—about as stringent as in a U.S. dental office. It is quite plausible to think that SARS-CoV-2 escaped from this lab, although it can’t be proved because records of Dr. Shi’s work have been sealed, writes Nicholas Wade (Bull Atomic Sci 5/5/21, https://tinyurl.com/4rbswx5d).

The most damning evidence for a laboratory origin is the presence of a double CGG code for arginine in the cleavage site of the SARS CoV-2  spike protein. This coding sequence is rare in nature, but common in the lab, and has not been found in any other coronaviruses (https://tinyurl.com/3xs6z7dt).

Emails showed that Dr. Fauci helped to “debunk” the lab leak theory (https://tinyurl.com/w4c5hbm). In 2012, Dr. Fauci said that the benefit of manipulating bat viruses was worth the risk of a pandemic (tinyurl.com/cj6c5rz7). According to Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, NIH tried to block his department’s investigation of WIV research. Then-acting undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security, Chris Ford, reportedly was also hostile to an investigation. In a January 2021 memo he wrote: “I would also caution you against suggesting that there is anything inherently suspicious…about People’s Liberation Army (PLA) involvement at WIV…. [I]t would be difficult to say that military involvement in classified virus research is intrinsically problematic, since the U.S. Army has been deeply involved in virus research in the United States for many years” (Daily Mail 6/8/21, https://tinyurl.com/ver6urrn).

  Dr. Fauci brands the furor over the emails as “nonsense” and told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “it’s really very much an attack on science” (https://tinyurl.com/32em8j3f).


Early Warning Signals

Early warning systems work only if they are turned on—and only if there is a response.

Vaccine Breakthrough: A total of 10,262 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine breakthrough infections had been reported to CDC as of Apr 30, 2021; among these, 995 patients were known to be hospitalized, and 160  died.  Beginning May 1, CDC transitioned to monitoring only cases involving hospitalization or death (https://tinyurl.com/3m2j4p8s). As of Jun 1,  2021, 3016 hospitalized or fatal vaccine breakthrough cases had been reported (tinyurl.com/2utarf79).

VAERS: Data entry into the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is severely backlogged. Over a few months, the number of entries related to platelet problems increased 17-fold, from 370 to 6290 (jpands.org/vol26no2/merritt.pdf). Data entry and retrieval in the antiquated system is very difficult and time-consuming.  One person working with the system estimates that nonetheless 100,000 adverse events are being entered every month (https://tinyurl.com/yrnfddxm). Today, openvaers.com/covid-data lists 5,185 deaths, 571 miscarriages,  3,994 disabled.

Infertility: Infertility from vaccinating the college-age population would not be seen for years. The earliest effect would  appear in infertility clinics. After a previously successful egg donor got the COVID shot, zero of 30 embryos from her fourth donation survived past 5 days, and sperm from vaccinated donors were also nonviable (https://tinyurl.com/vk27vedj).


Precedent for Grooming

The term “grooming” is often used for victims of pedophiles.  But one member suggested that the Gleiwitz Sender (radio-station) incident might be applied to compulsory vaccination.

German operatives needed dead bodies dressed in enemy (Polish) uniforms as a prop in staging their false-flag Gleiwitz radio-station attack. Those corpses were supposed to serve as “proof” that an enemy assault had occurred and many attackers had been  killed by the brave defenders. The problem was how to procure so many dead bodies. Historical accounts are contradictory and mixed with propaganda. Medical details are buried in obscure, difficult-to-access German journals. The corpses were prison inmates, who had reportedly been accustomed to receiving periodic injections of vitamins mixed with low-dose amphetamines and morphine. They learned that those injections didn’t harm them and even made them feel better. On the day of the operation, a toxin was added (likely a mixture of acetonitrile and acetone, resulting in delayed production of hydrogen cyanide). Dead prisoners (“canned goods”) dressed in enemy uniforms were shot to imitate combat wounds. All was done quickly and efficiently with minimal personnel.

Children, parents, and physicians have experience with multiple vaccinations that have (mostly) been harmless. They trust the government and our scientific experts. We are not, after all, prison inmates in a totalitarian country.


“Violence does not always and necessarily lunge straight for your throat; more often than not it demands of its subjects only that they pledge allegiance to lies, that they participate in falsehood.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


Biodistribution of Vaccine Components

The mRNA vaccines contain mRNA coding for SARS-CoV-2 spike protein enveloped in lipid nanoparticles. According to the European Medicines Agency, (only) one biodistribution study, for a different (“surrogate”) type of mRNA that produces luciferase protein, has been carried out in male Sprague-Dawley rats. EMA reviewers stated that “No traditional pharmacokinetic or biodistribution studies have been performed with the [Pfizer] vaccine candidate BNT162b2” (tinyurl.com/5m3wj44m).

Low levels of surrogate mRNA were found in all examined tissues except kidney, including brain, “indicating that the mRNA/LNP platform crossed the blood/brain barrier, although to very low levels” (https://tinyurl.com/483686y3). The virus itself cannot do this. One may ask, what is to stop the immune system from attacking cells such as brain cells that express spike protein? A substantial fraction of VAERS reports involve neurological manifestations.

A FOI request showed that TGA (Therapeutic Good Administration), the Australian drug regulator, did not even request Pfizer raw data (tinyurl.com/fbrph7xa).


Incentive to Diagnose and Treat

Medicare pays hospitals 20% more for patients with a COVID diagnosis. This includes a  20% increase in the average Medicare payment for a respiratory system diagnosis with ventilator support for greater than 96 hours, which was $40,218 (tinyurl.com/v49tpfum). Additionally, hospitals get more money when they treat inpatients with drugs (such as remdesivir) or biologicals approved by FDA for COVID-19 (tinyurl.com/pm4vdrb8). The extra cash helps to sustain the big chains’ buying sprees as they scoop up weakened competitors and physicians’ practices (https://tinyurl.com/4pr6n9s).

Fauci’s Wife: Christine Grady, M.S.N., Ph.D., chief of bioethics and head of human subjects research at the NIH Clinical Center, and her husband have been described as “a medical power couple leading the fight against the virus” (tinyurl.com/u27t3xdj).

Citizens’ Petition to Block Premature Approval

On June 1, a number of prestigious physicians and scientists petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to  require that the vaccine manufacturers provide extensive safety data including “at least 2 years of follow-up of participants originally enrolled in pivotal clinical trials, even if the trials were unblinded and now lack a placebo control,” before approval of any COVID-19 vaccine [emphasis added]. Also needed are:

·  Thorough safety assessment of spike proteins produced in-situ by the body, and their full biodistribution and pharmacokinetics;

  • Studies of vaccine biodistribution from the administration site;
  • Thorough investigation of all severe adverse reactions reported in the U.S. and global pharmacovigilance systems;
  • Inclusion of gene delivery and therapy experts in the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC);
  • Enforcing stringent conflict-of-interest requirements. 

Prominent signatories include Peter Doshi, Ph.D.; Peter Gøtzsche, M.D.; Tom Jefferson, M.D.; Joseph Ladapo, M.D., Ph.D.; and Peter McCullough, M.D. (tinyurl.com/s6ezvx8).


Employees Sue Houston Methodist

Houston Methodist, a seven-hospital system, is being charged with wrongful discharge and violating a federal law dictating “that where a medical product is ‘unapproved’ then no one may be mandated to take it.” The 117 plaintiffs, including nurses, receptionists, technicians, and administrators, are asking for a temporary injunction against the firings. Employees can apply for religious or medical exemptions, but none of the 12 requests were granted. “It is unfortunate,” said CEO Marc  Boom, “that the few remaining employees who refuse to get vaccinated and put our patients first are responding in this way” (tinyurl.com/mc6dc9j8).

Plaintiffs include Jennifer Bridges, R.N., who has become the  voice of workers who object to mandatory vaccination, and Bob Nevens, the hospital’s former director of corporate risk. Nevens says the hospital was requiring him to be vaccinated even though he doesn’t treat patients and has been working from home for most of the past year. “My right to protect myself from unknown side effects of these vaccines has been placed below the optics of ‘Leading Medicine’” (https://tinyurl.com/3rnj8aup).


TRO Requested to Stop Vax in Children under 16

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), former Minnesota  state senator Scott Jensen, M.D., and others filed for a temporary restraining order in federal court for the Northern District of Alabama against the emergency use authorization (EUA) permitting use of the COVID-19 “vaccines” in children under the age of 16.

AFLDS founder Simone Gold, M.D., J.D., said that these products are not vaccines but are experimental biological agents “whose harms are well-documented (although suppressed and censored) and growing rapidly, and we will not support using America’s children as guinea pigs.”

Plaintiffs will file suit arguing that EUAs should never have been granted and should be revoked immediately, and that numerous laws have been broken in the process of granting these EUAs and pushing the injections on Americans (tinyurl.com/zsmfvyyw).


Indiana Univ Mandate Called Unconstitutional

In a press release and letter to The IU Family for Choice, Not Mandates, the Bopp Law Firm of Terre Haute, IN, states that it believes that IU’s mandate in an unconstitutional violation of students’ rights to bodily integrity and is considering litigation. Students are invited to see the “What Do I Do Now?” section on the group’s website (tinyurl.com/fd389bxm).


Duty to Snitch

Effective May 31, 2021, Ohio MDs, DOs, and DPMs will be required to complete one hour of CME prior to license renewal on the topic of the duty to report misconduct under section 4731.224 of the Revised Code. “Examples of misconduct include, but are not limited to, sexual misconduct, impairment, practice below the minimal standards of care, and improper prescribing of controlled substances.” Failure to report a colleague’s misconduct carries a fine of $20,000.


Italy Declares COVID Jab Mandatory for All

An administrative decree of Mario Draghi’s government  has been approved by the Sanitary Dictatorship and enacted into law by parliament, making COVID jabs mandatory for all, regardless of religious beliefs. Those who refuse will be denied all medical assistance, in all hospitals and clinics, public and private. Poor people are being denied welfare checks. Any resistance can be deemed violent, and violence deemed a sign of insanity. In past weeks political dissidents have been threatened with or received TSO’s (being taken to a mental asylum) for refusing to comply with Sanitary Dictatorship decrees (tinyurl.com/6ynsw838).


Is Fauci a Distraction?

On May 28, Brian Gerrish, founder of UK Column, gave testimony before the Stiftung Corona Ausschuss, the German-based extraparliamentary inquiry into the medical establishment’s and public policymakers’ handling of the COVID crisis internationally. This was opened to initiate an international class action lawsuit led by attorney Reiner Füllmich.

Gerrish suggested that the Fauci story distracts attention from the critical questions the public is beginning to ask about the fear-based measures that are destroying the world’s middle class, and the dangers of the vaccination campaign—along with the massive urgency to vaccinate children who are at minimal risk from the disease  (https://tinyurl.com/pp86p5t9).


Solzhenitsyn’s American Millstone

Millstones grind grain into flour, and the focus in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s book Between Two Millstones: Exile in America, 1978-1994 is on how the two great political systems of the mid-20th century grind the human soul into dust. The millstone of Western democracy, he warns, simulates the Soviet tyranny. “Western apparatchiks sold their souls to an ideology just as communists did—but without the cynicism” and with confident sanctimoniousness (https://tinyurl.com/c486xetx).


Correspondence

Freedom Is Expendable. The very day we learned of the Houston Methodist lawsuit, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) came out with guidance telling employers they can legally require their employees to get a COVID vaccination (WSJ 5/29/21). The article states: “And employers that are administering vaccines to their employees may also offer incentives as long as the incentives aren’t coercive.” The “incentive” being offered to the plaintiffs is that if they submit to taking the vaccine, they will be allowed to continue earning a living, paying their bills, and feeding their families.  How is that not coercive?

Minions at the FDA are currently working hard and fast to provide formal FDA approval of the jabs. That will moot some of the plaintiffs’ arguments. Operation “warp approval” will cut corners and take shortcuts like never seen before. In the meantime, this EEOC proclamation is clearly designed to discourage the flood of lawsuits that they recognize is coming, and to demoralize people to believe there is no hope.

In the lawsuit, David Bernard, CEO of Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital is quoted as saying: “100% vaccination is more important than your individual freedom. Every one of you is replaceable. If you don’t like what you are doing you can leave and we will replace your spot.”

Immunity. While vaccine advocates assert that only the vaccines work in the end, the huge Israel study shows that previous infection (average 7 months in the past) cuts infection rate by 90% just like vaccination (https://tinyurl.com/89rey4c6). And we know that plasma memory B cells generally last years. And just because second cases of COVID can occur does not mean that they do occur with any frequency. The constant misinformation being promulgated today is overbearing.

Fruitless Bat Search. China has tested more than 50,000 animals, including thousands of bats, to find evidence of COVID-19’s origins—amid a renewed international focus on whether the virus actually leaked from a laboratory (tinyurl.com/y74x9cny).

Willie Soon, Ph.D., Salem, MA


Boom for Billionaires. On Jan 21-24, 2020, the World Economic Forum met in Davos, Switzerland, and Moderna representatives, business leaders, and World Health Organization (WHO) director Dr. Tedros were there, discussing the mRNA jab. On Jan 30, WHO declared a public health emergency. A huge increase in wealth followed immediately. Michel Chossudovsky, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Ottawa, explained how the “killer virus” fear campaign and global lockdowns redistributed the losses of ordinary people from their pension funds, mutual funds savings, and investments to the rich who profited greatly from the “fore-knowledge.” The combined wealth increase of the 15 billionaires with the greatest growth in absolute wealth was $563 billion or 82%. Billionaires will buy out  bankrupt assets for pennies on the dollar. The “engineered destabilization of the global economy” would not have been possible without the constant fear promulgated by mainstream media, COVID-19 medical czars, and compliant medical professionals.

Ileana Johnson, Ed.D., https://tinyurl.com/33hns3w


Herd Immunity—Before and After. “Herd immunity is the indirect protection from an infectious disease that happens when  a population is immune either through vaccination or immunity developed through previous infection.” Now the corrupt WHO has changed the definition: “‘Herd immunity,’ also known as ‘population immunity,’ is a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached.”

Joseph Scherzer, M.D., Paradise Valley, AZ


It’s about Population Control. Socialism is misanthropic to the core. The “Great Reset”—the Deep State Globalist “destructionism” and power grab—is really just another iteration of leftist tyrannical ambition. Thomas DiLorenzo (https://tinyurl.com/4er52wnc) exposes the eugenicist totalitarians of the present like Bill Gates, Jr., and Klaus Schwab, the ideological heirs of Frederick Engels and Karl Marx. “Transhumanism,” strongly promoted and funded by Gates, is the new name for eugenics. It would involve integration of nanotechnology into the human body so that humans can be controlled remotely by the state. Klaus Schwab’s books go into excruciating detail about the digitalization of life—the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Robert Ehrlich, one of their ideological forebears, suggested putting sterilizing agents into food and water. Gates said that  if “we” do “a really great job on vaccines…, we could lower [world population] by perhaps 10 to 15 percent.”

John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Brownwood, TX



Dr. Fauci a Key Player. Because there IS effective COVID treatment, which Fauci opposes, the vaccine EUAs are fraudulent.  Most of his recommended and at times mandated interventions are worse than futile. It’s the greatest medical disaster in history.
