Hump Day Hilarity – BANNED by Big Tech

Or maybe not so funny. We still have that video that has been banned on Facebook, YouTube, CNN, BBC, and Twitter. It seems that big tech doesn’t like it when people think for themselves and go off the rails of the official narrative.

They’ve apparently never heard of the The Streisand Effect.

Josh sums it up:

Do watch if you have not already – the video is here.

Meanwhile…this study happened.

For the silenced medical evidence, 74% of 62 papers show EARLY use of hydroxychloroquine (especially with Zinc and azithromycin) show major benefit. See C19Study.com
Especially within 2 days!
Dr Zelenko had 84% lower hospitalization and 80% lower deaths per TheZelenkoProtocol.com
Dr Stella said she successfully treated 350 with no deaths. Now writing a paper. Etc.

Henry Pool The Sermo Covid19 Barometer -Survey documents what 6200 physicians are actually using to treat Covid-19. e.g.

Hydroxychloroquine was overall chosen as the most effective therapy amongst COVID-19 treaters from a list of 15 options (37% of COVID-19 treaters). 75% in Spain, 53% Italy, 44% in China, 43% in Brazil, 29% in France, 23% in the U.S. and 13% in the U.K.

Note the lack of zinc in that list.

It is the zinc that is the important item in the list. Intracellular zinc needs to be raised and then RNA viruses cannot replicate by hijacking the cellular RNA transcription process. This is why all so called studies deliberately omit zinc.

The medical community cannot be trusted to carry out a formal trial as they are deliberately varying the successful regimen and dosages and the best time to use the regimen. The regimen that is successful when used prophylactically through to when symptoms appear is:
> HCQ as an ionophore that also reduces inflammation;
> zinc that inhibits viral replication;
> azithromycin antibiotic that prevents opportunist infection and also has some antiviral effect.

Now 65 publications listed at C19Study.com.
75% show effectiveness of early use of hydroxychloroquine.
See especially the 2nd graph.
Sermo.com surveyed 6200 physicians:
Largest Statistically Significant Study by 6,200 Multi-Country Physicians on COVID-19 Uncovers Treatment Patterns and Puts Pandemic in Context

The three most commonly prescribed treatments amongst COVID-19 treaters are 56% analgesics, 41% Azithromycin, and 33% Hydroxychloroquine
Hydroxychloroquine usage amongst COVID-19 treaters is 72% in Spain, 49% in Italy, 41% in Brazil, 39% in Mexico, 28% in France, 23% in the U.S., 17% in Germany, 16% in Canada, 13% in the UK and 7% in Japan
Hydroxychloroquine was overall chosen as the most effective therapy amongst COVID-19 treaters from a list of 15 options (37% of COVID-19 treaters)
75% in Spain, 53% Italy, 44% in China, 43% in Brazil, 29% in France, 23% in the U.S. and 13% in the U.K.
The two most common treatment regimens for Hydroxychloroquine were:
(38%) 400mg twice daily on day one; 400 mg daily for five days
(26%) 400mg twice daily on day one; 200mg twice daily for four days
Outside the U.S., Hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the U.S. it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients
Globally, 19% of physicians prescribed or have seen Hydroxychloroquine prophylactically used for high risk patients, and 8% for low risk patients

Here are some links I’ve collected on the use of HCQ / hydroxychloroquine:

https://c19study.com :
a treatment which is x% effective could have saved:
10% effective could have saved 59,288 lives.
25% effective could have saved 148,473 lives.
50% effective could have saved 296,496 lives.

“There is one exception. Many researchers agree that a good case can be made for continuing to test whether hydroxychloroquine can prevent infection if given to people just in case they get exposed to the virus, for instance on the job at a hospital—a strategy called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). “You have a much better chance of preventing something with a weak drug than you have of curing a fully established infection,” says White, who runs one of the largest PrEP trials. He notes that doxycycline, an antibiotic, has long been used in malaria prophylaxis. “We would never treat anybody with it, it’s too weak. But it’s a very good prophylactic.””
https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/06/three-big-studies-dim-hopes-hydroxychloroquine-can-treat-or-prevent-covid-19

The above is a supposedly fair, gold-standard (Minneapolis) study that found no benefit in HCQ treatment. But, if it’s 10% effective as a prophylactic, it could save tens of thousands of lives.

In the optimistic hope of setting straight some of the oh-so-typical elitist snark of our progressive board posters regarding Dr. Dr. Immanuel.

I groaned a little when I heard about her beliefs – if only because I knew what the press harpies would do with it, but I’m willing to see what she’s got.

See, I’m from Portland – that means you grow up learning to accept a wide range of wild beliefs – half the women I’ve dated since before the turn of the Millennium were at least Wiccan , if not outright witches – and I mean casting-spells-witchcraft – and some of them were pretty damn smart.

One woman was a personal director for a major international company – she told me the story of how when she and her husband broke up, she said she cast a spell to make their house sell, but forgot to take it off after it did – and she explained that you’re not supposed to do that because a spell is like a living thing that will start acting on its own – and therefore her house burned down. Her ex-husband apparently chided her – you didn’t take the spell off, did you?
Another young woman – valedictorian her class – told me “I can see where you came from a monkey, but I’M a divine creation of God’.

I would easily place either one of these women’s IQ at 145-plus, and if either of them had been doctors instead of the field in which they worked, I would say, yes, I would take their medical advice – hell, I might even let them cast a spell.

I’ll tell you this, too – once you’ve had a voodoo doll with a lock of your damn hair in it passed around town, you’ll start being a little more respectful of people’s theological beliefs.

I’d also remind you that this is a big sub-culture in the Earthy community – so perhaps, you should be a littler more careful about the witches you burn.

3119 patients treated successfully with Hydroxychloroquine & Azithromycin
(9 times more than the 350 Dr. Stella Immanuel successfully treated)

Although this is a retrospective analysis, results suggest that early diagnosis, early isolation and early treatment of COVID-19 patients, with at least 3 days of HCQ-AZ lead to a significantly better clinical outcome and a faster viral load reduction than other treatments.

We retrospectively report the clinical management of 3,737 screened patients, including 3,119 (83.5%) treated with HCQ-AZ (200 mg of oral HCQ, three times daily for ten days and 500 mg of oral AZ on day 1 followed by 250 mg daily for the next four days, respectively) for at least three days and 618 (16.5%) patients treated with other regimen (“others”). …No cases of torsade de pointe or sudden death were observed.

That’s what the HouseJudiciary Committee on Big Tech was saying that today, and not only that, but they are engaged in Anti-Trust activities.

Even Wikipedia has a page called Social Media as a Public Utility. When it dominates, and crushes its competition, it becomes an Anti-Trust Utility. This is why changes is coming to the way big tech operates. Europe has been hitting some them of them hard over the years too, including Microsoft and Google as probably everyone recalls. There is no doubt now that the definition of Utility now exceeds the usual definition of electricity, water, sewer and gas. Cable TV and Internet are utilities, so why not social media like Facebook, Google and Twitter? They have a near monopoly and are now crushing free speech on their platforms that the majority of people access. Amazon is crushing Main Street, and also engaging in nefarious activities how they do business. So why isn’t that a utility, when they now have dominant market share?

Anti monopoly laws are fundamentally inappropriate here. They may help, just like solving a problem with classical mechanics may appear to work, but it’s the wrong analysis, wrong viewpoint, wrong frame of reference.

The laws were written against people trying to control market to earn as much as possible. They weren’t designed against collusion of actors trying to impose a suicidal “ideology” (or ideals-ogy? as failed presidential candidate Royal might say) on the People.

Monopolies lead to enrichment but going woke in general does not. It’s something much more nefarious.

The frame of reference must include interference in politics and free speech: monopoly not on selling gadgets, but on “moderation” of public forums.

Anti monopolies laws were not used, AFAIK, against communists.

But you failed.

You failed at understanding the nature of the Genetic fallacy. You didn’t read the link defining it and/or you don’t understand how words mean things in different contexts.

Maybe I can help.

In this context, “Genetic” doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with an INDIVIDUAL’S origins or DNA, but rather, it’s called the “Genetic Fallacy” because:

“You judged something as either good or bad on the basis of where it comes from, or from whom it came.”

There are studies showing that painting a wart with colored water and telling the patient it will go away will work. There are studies showing that putting the wart under a large an impressive machine that shines a low level colored light on the wart and telling the patient that the wart will go away will work.

@Henry Pool

Actually that happens all the time in current medical practice although they don’t use the same words. It is the reason for ‘double blind’ trials. It is called the placebo effect.
There is no psychological difference between putting on a white coat and giving blue sugar pills to a patient and them recovering – than putting on regalia and doing an excorcism and them recovering. The placebo effect can be extremely powerful.

There will be some patients receiving the placebo in double blind trials that may improve just because they received medical treatment in a hospital from white coated doctors and pills to swallow.

More importantly, if someone worships the great spaghetti monster on weekends, but during the week is a talented physician with a 100% record on curing a particular disease. Why would you avoid that doctor? Should atheists only to to atheist doctors?

“What do you suggest someone do to prevent dreaming of sex with demons?”

Generally, dreaming of sex with someone is seen not so much as a desire to actually have sex with that person, but as wanting to have a quality they possess.
To see demons in your dream indicates that you may be experiencing or inflicting fear, emotional distress or physical abuse in your waking life. Demons are also symbolic of ignorance, negative habits, and of your shadow self. (dreammoods.com)

So, to prevent dreaming of sex with demons if you are having such dreams, you likely have to stop desiring to inflict distress or abuse on others or overcome a masochistic-like desire to have more pain in your life.
Either way, there are serious issues you need to sort out in your life.

I hope this information will motivate you to get the help you need.

Your logical fallacy is:

The Genetic Fallacy: This fallacy avoids the argument by shifting focus onto something’s or someone’s origins.

I am not a doctor and have no medical expertise. I do know however that there are a lot of

some that shows it increases the fatality rate of COVID-19. So I have to decide which set of

reasonable way to do that. Dr. Immanuel has a range of false beliefs about medical topics which makes me less likely to trust her on other topics.

Well, no Izaak, looking at beliefs on other topics is NOT a reasonable way to judge anyone’s beliefs on any other topic. The only reasonable way to believe anyone on anything is based upon the evidence they have to offer. Under your assumptions, if Dr. Immanuel claimed the sky is blue, you would necessarily have to disagree with her.

That’s just dumb, and it’s a logical fallacy, which places you in the realm of UNREASONABLE individuals if you believe in such nonsense. It makes you a sloppy thinker when you think irrationally. Part of thinking irrationally is thinking on the basis of logical fallacies.

Maybe after you listen and learn from the Master you’ll have that opportunity as the Student, but not until then.

So there – :-p

She has made claims about the effectiveness of HCQ without presenting any evidence.

NOW, you’ve finally hit the nail on the head. As far as I know, you’re absolutely correct on this point. And this is all that matters. Maybe there’s hope for you after all.

Now we’ll see if she can produce reproducible evidence to back up her claims. She, along with the other doctors standing with her, need to do this. If they can’t, well that’s a problem. I neither believe nor disbelieve them until they succeed or fail in that particular task.

But this has nothing whatsoever to do with her personal spiritual beliefs or theirs.

Isaak Walton – You need to look a bit more carefully into the “lot of
peer review studies showing that the treatment Dr. Immanuel proposes doesn’t work and even some that shows it increases the fatality rate of COVID-19”. The evidence in favour of HCQ is for early treatment, preferably with zinc. All of the studies that claimed HCG doesn’t work were in hospital patients who were therefore already in a later stage of the virus. The Lancet study was even worse.
This comes up all the time – one example of many: “India could be taking a relook at the use of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for treatment of Covid-19 after the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Saturday announced that it had discontinued HCQ clinical trials because it did not reduce mortality in hospitalized patients, based on the results of interim trials.” https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/other/centre-may-review-hcq-use-for-covid/ar-BB16mAmp [my emphasis]
I am appalled at how the WHO has discouraged testing based on results of limited trials, and in some cases, eg. the Lancet study, obviously flawed trials.. How dare they risk lives by preventing something being tested? It isn’t as if testing one thing prevents another being tested. The world should be cnducting every test it can think of.

During my Doctoral pursuit I could only use peer-reviewed studies for references. What one will find is cases where Dr. Ying posits this, while Dr. Yang discovers that, which are contradictory.

I’ve taken hydroxychloroquine every time I deployed with the military to war zones; sometimes for up to a year. The largest concern with the drug was liver damage due to taking too much. A prescribed dosage is 100mg per day; though there are weekly doses of 500mg.

All drugs have side-effects and some cause deaths in certain cases. That this excludes empirical evidence of those medical professionals in the field that attest to its effectiveness in early stages is imprudent and irresponsible in the vilest manner.

This is factually incorrect. The treatment Dr Immanuel uses was not use that “lot of peer review (sic) studies”. They all omitted the active ingredient zinc, which is admitted to red blood corpuscles by the HCQ acting as an ionophore. The more recent studies of the treatment she is using shows it reduces the mortality by 50% even with the recommended vitamin D3 supplement. It is about twice as effective as Remdesivir. Gilead is worried about that. Why spend $3000 for half the effect of $12?

Why would I think that a geophysicist who believes the earth is 5,000 years old has credibility? Because when he says “drill here and you’ll hit oil” we drill and hit oil. That’s why. She says she cured 350 of 350 patients. Why is there not one critic like you asking if that’s true or not?

Except that radiodating requires two huge assumptions, that you know the initial state and that the rate has remained constant. Research by the RATE group has shown that modest temperature and pressure can reduce the half-life of a radioisotope by as much as 12 orders of magnitude. Which would be a wonderful way of dealing with high-level radioactivective waste after processing to remove it from the spent fuel.

If this absurd claim of yours had any basis in reality, then there would be no nuclear waste “problem”, All we would have to do is heat the waste up by a few degrees, and all the radiation from the sample would be gone in minutes.
Not to mention the problem of keeping any nuclear reactor from going critical as soon as it started to heat up.

Hi Ralph,
I was a professor of mine in university and that was decades ago. Not sure if he is even still alive. But yes he consulted to oil industry. Plus he taught the courses in how to date fossils etc that were millions of years old. But was religious and believed the earth was only a few thousand years old. So one day I asked him how he reconciled those two things. I’m paraphrasing, but the answer was interesting.

He picked up some fossilized sea creature from his desk and said it was x million years old and he wanted to understand what it was that god had created and how it fit into the world, so he became a geophysicist. Then he said, if he had wanted to understand WHY, 5000 years ago, god created a fossilized sea creature that was x million years old, he would have become a priest.

You are correct.

Here’s the way it went: Reporters saw this video and did opposition research (looking for dirt) on all the participants, and found something about her that they thought they could use to discredit the whole bunch of them. It’s classic “Attack the Messenger” stuff.

The woman who organized this news conference (not the Nigerian woman being criticized) and owns the website, said that her website provider took her website down right out of the blue with no notification to her. She said she will have the website back up as soon as they get another provider.

The anti-HCQ forces found a weak spot and they seek to exploit it. Of course, that doesn’t change the fact that all these doctors are reporting very good results using HCQ. Their diversion doesn’t change that at all.

Reply to  Tom Abbott
July 31, 2020 10:14 pm

Quite so. Unmentioned (in any MSM account, and here too) is the organizer of the conference. Dr. Simone Gold – Doctor of Medicine, Juris Doctor, certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine, worked in the US Surgeon General’s office. Not a “whack job.”

Incidentally, fired by the hospital (in the Soviet Socialist Republic of California) after doing so. She, and others who dared to blow the whistle on the scam and suffered the loss of their livelihoods as a consequence, have hired the “Covington Kids” attorney. Should be some good fireworks there…

I did read the Abstract. Pharmacological action in vitro is a pretty good sign of action in vivo unless there are pharmacokinetic issues, which there are not. More specifically, if it glycosylates the ACE2 receptor in vitro, it glycosylates the ACE2 in vivo. It is a chemical reaction. There could be some differences in the interaction, however, in the absence of a study addressing this interaction with SARS2 the evidence cannot be dismissed as the genetic coding of the spike protein in both is very similar. …. and due to the politicalization of the whole issue, the study is not likely to ever be done.

I have a REALLY simple solution to this issue. Instead of putting all your effort into debating whether she (and her claims) have any credibility, why not

1 go get the hospital records of the patients she has treated for covid19 and look at the actual results

2 too difficult? go visit the hospital and talk to the patients she is currently treating – the several a day she claims – and watch how they progress

3 still too difficult? Why not put an add in a local paper expressing an interest in talking to past patients the doctor treated for covid19 (you know some of 350 grateful people she claims to have treated) and ask them to get in touch for a chat – provide a contact number.

But then again, why let facts (and no I have no idea what the facts would indicate) get in the way of a fun episode of character assassination (sarc/). Then again how much would it cost to check and what would the payoff be if she was right. Just maybe even a remote chance she was right might outweigh the cost of checking.

I think the important thing is that there were about a dozen other Doctors with her saying much the same thing about treatment for Covid 19.

But of course it’s usual for leftists like yo to dive ind immediately go for the smear without applying even a modicum of thought to what else was going on, who else was there, and what else they were saying.

How about you comment on the other Doctors who were there instead of regurgitating what you read on the Daily Beast rag.

Seems to me that when so much effort is put into demonizing the messenger, including what can only be described as total censorship by the media (both social and main stream), it has nothing to do with the validity of the message, but rather that the message goes against the “official” narrative. Someone –more likely many someones –can see a lot of dollars disappearing if such an inexpensive treatment goes main stream.
Izzac–take a real close look at all those studies you mention–not a single one of them followed the protocol of early treatment with HCQ, Plus Zinc, and in most cases an antibiotic. The studies you refer to were set up to fail. The very worst was the VA study that gave terminal cases massive overdoses, and then reported how deadly the HCQ was.

Izaak Walton.

Dr Immanuel did not publicly state that infertility is caused by demons and that alien DNA is being used for medical treatment.

Please provide a link to your source. I am sure it does not exist.

My point is real doctors who care about their patient and life would never lie to push a malaria drug that has been used for 20 years. HCQ is not a new drug.

The Jewish doctor is bullet proof form political attack because is an orthodox Jew working in his own community. That why he had the courage to speak up. In some states, governors have threatened doctors with loss of their license to practice medicine if they speech up.

There is a 2005 paper published by the US Institute of science that states HCQ is an effective treatment for the coronal viruses which covid-19 is. The 2005 paper which noted HCQ is effective against coronal viruses that gave the Jewish doctor the idea of treating his patients with a HCQ cocktail.

This is a link to the interview of the Jewish doctor who used Zinc sulfate plus Hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin to treat 700 covid patients, who were sick and showing symptoms, with only one death.

This Jewish doctor is how Trump found out about the HCQ cocktail.

“The study found about 20% of patients treated with a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin died and 22% who were treated with azithromycin alone compared with the 26% of patients who died after not being treated with either medication. “

This is NOT a resounding success for HCQ treatment…the difference between 26 or 20 of 100 patients not recovering, in an ICU environment, is so minor that “more study“ is a valid recommendation.
And it points to Dr. Stella’s claim of no deaths in her 350 patients as being probable wishful thinking, unless maybe they were all youths and children, her background being a successful pediatrician.

Gratz to you Henry! You, along with Izaak, Pete, Adrian and Steve, are all proving your absolute BRILLIANCE in rational thought with your one common means of sloppy thinking.

Aren’t you all just cute in your Stupid?

Your logical fallacy is:

The Genetic Fallacy (Adrian had a conceptual issue with this term earlier Henry, so for your edification I’ll clarify below. You know, in case you’re having a similar failure as he?): This fallacy avoids the argument by shifting focus onto something’s or someone’s origins. It’s similar to an ad hominem fallacy in that it leverages existing negative perceptions to make someone’s argument look bad, without actually presenting a case for why the argument itself lacks merit.

Clarification (for Henry and Adrian): In this context, “Genetic” doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with an INDIVIDUAL’S origins or DNA, but rather, it’s called the “Genetic Fallacy” because:

“You judged something as either good or bad on the basis of where it comes from, or from whom it came.”

But we already know that.

William Astley
Reply to  DMacKenzie
July 29, 2020 5:38 pm

You are misreading the study. And the raw results are confusing.

Those treated with HCQ only had half the death rate 13% as compared to those who received no treatment 26%.

The part you quoted is the percentage of those treated who died.

It appears there was cherry picking by a panel of doctors to determine which patient got the treatment.

I noticed it took 24 hours for them to treat the very sick patients with the HCQ cocktails. The treatment only lasted 6 days.

The virus starts in the throat and takes a week to get to lungs and spends a week in the lungs. These people were not treated early. HCQ stops the virus from replicating. It cannot help patients when the virus has replicated and has attacked the lung. It is too late.

That explains why 26% of the untreated patients died. These were very sick patients who for some strange reason could not get early treatment with HCQ.

Only 4% of the general covid patients die from covid and the death rate drops in the summer as the US population is less Vitamin D deficient in the summer.

It looks as if this study, in a Democratic controlled state, was designed to fail and HCQ still managed to show very good results.

The study conclusions are (I am quoting the conclusions not paraphrasing).

Hydroxychloroquine provided a 66% hazard ratio reduction, and hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin 71% compared to neither treatment (p<0.001).

Conclusions and Relevance: In this multi-hospital assessment, when controlling for COVID-19 risk factors, treatment with hydroxychloroquine alone and in combination with azithromycin was associated with reduction in COVID-19 associated mortality.

162 1202 13.5% HCQ Only
33 147 22.4% AZ Only
157 783 20.1% HCQ & AZ
108 409 26.4% None
460 2541 18.1% Total fatalities.

The zinc is the actual chemical that stop replication of the virus. All these doctors not adding zinc are incompetent as they obviously don’t know the mechanism of action of HCQ and basically wasting people’s lives by doing pretend-science without full knowledge of what they do. It is not only incompetence but criminal by ignorance.

If you listened to the event the firs thing you would learn is that there are two different cases early treatment and treatment very late after people are very sick
They only made claims related to early treatment while the case you state was when there was already considerable damage which there are no claims for magic results for the medicine.

When the patient is in ICU, it is NOT the time for antivirals – much, much too late. Whether that is cheap HCQ or expensive Remdesivir, or one of the in-between pharmaceuticals. Especially when combined with massive overdoses, the protocol is downright dangerous.

This stupid Canada study gave people HCQ for four days and their conclusion, is the research team learned nothing about how to use HCQ as a prophylactic. Which is absolutely correct. Nothing learned in that study.

HCQ cannot work as a prophylactic if the dosage was too high and the time to short for the drug to do what it is doing to stop covid.

We know from the next study that the HCQ triple cocktail is very effective in stopping covid, reduces death by a factor of five and reduces hospitalization by 80%.

The secret to saving the patient is to treat the patient with the HCQ triple cocktail early before the virus has spread to their lungs and it is too late. The studies that allege the study in question,…

… proved the triple cocktail does not work gave HCQ to almost dead people where the virus had spread to their lungs and damaged their lungs. That is not medical ‘research’. I do not know what to call that.

The results of this early use HCQ triple cocktail covid study is:

The HCQ triple cocktail (Low dosage HCQ, Azithromycin and Zinc) when given to at risk patients early reduced their risk of hospitalization by 80%.

Early HCQ triple cocktail treatment resulted in 5 times less all cause deaths.

Five times less deaths would have saved 100,000 US lives.

Your logical fallacy is:

The Genetic Fallacy: This fallacy avoids the argument by shifting focus onto something’s or someone’s origins. It’s similar to an ad hominem fallacy in that it leverages existing negative perceptions to make someone’s argument look bad, without actually presenting a case for why the argument itself lacks merit.

Ok this is the trifecta of redirection Adrian. 3 times I’ve asked you for evidence for your claims and 3 times you’ve played the Stupid with your nonsense.

Your logical fallacy is:

Burden of Proof: You said that the burden of proof lies not with the person making the claim, but with someone else to disprove.

“The burden of proof lies with someone who is making a claim, and is not upon anyone else to disprove. The inability, or disinclination, to disprove a claim does not render that claim valid, nor give it any credence whatsoever. However it is important to note that we can never be certain of anything, and so we must assign value to any claim based on the available evidence, and to dismiss something on the basis that it hasn’t been proven beyond all doubt is also fallacious reasoning.”

Henry Pool do you have something to say that is supported by facts? Critical thought is observation and logic based. It is not name calling. You will recognize it when you see it.

What is your theory why a Black Woman from Nigeria who has moved to the US and is now running a Houston clinic that see 10 to 15 covid patients a day.

Houston has one of the worst problems with obesity and diabetes in the US. And Houston has a large ‘black’ population. It is a fact that twice as many US blacks are dying from covid than the US general population.

Why the Lady Doctor would lie about the HCQ cocktails effectiveness, to treat high risk covid patients?

This courageous doctor is risking her career because she knows many of her diabetic, asthmatic, overweight, covid sick patients would have died if they were not treated with the HCQ cocktail.

In the Michigan study they lost 18% of their diabetic, asthmatic, overweight covid sick patients.

The Michigan study found the HCQ cocktail reduced the death rate by 50%. This is a link to the published study.

Odd that Fauci has not read Michigan study linked to below.

Fauci is quoted today in the BCC and he said there is no proof that the HCQ cocktail is a highly effective treatment for covid, if given early in the virus’s progression.

The virus attacks the throat first and then moves on to the lungs. The HCQ cocktail it appears stops the virus from replicating.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7330574/pdf/main.pdf

.”Hydroxychloroquine provided a 66% hazard ratio reduction,
and hydroxychloroquine + azithromycin provided a 71% hazard ratio reduction compared to neither treatment (p<0.001)."

Let me explain what a Hazard Ratio Reduction Factor is… That term was explained in preliminary paper.

HCQ plus azithromycin reduced the covid death rate by 50% and it reduce long term serious damage to patients organs.

There is NO critical thinking with any of your TROLLING Henry Pool and your other rascal mates
In my opinion you have added absolutely nothing to this debate about treatment for Covid 19.
IF I was running this site you would have been banned but this site believes in Free Speech .
The Facts of the matter is that Hydroxychloroquine HCQ in the correct amount with zinc and an antibiotic administered at an early stage of the disease will prevent DEATHS.
For some unknown reason trials were run with the a predetermined out come of proving that HCQ does not work .
This Doctor claims that she has not lost a patient .
This claim can be verified or not by those in charge and it will be in due course .
If I had family member die from Covid 19 that were denied this treatment and it is proven to work as claimed ,I would think that there would be a very good case against these health officials that have blocked the use of this drug.
HCQ has been used for many ailments and still is and suddenly politically motivated doctors state that HCQ is has dangerous side effects ( which are quite mild ) unless large doses are given.
Quinine has been used for almost 400 year and has saved probably millions of lives and HCQ is derived from Quinine.
If the risks of taking HCQ were at all dangerous it would have been banned long ago .
The risks are very low using HCQ and most people that I know would take a small risk rather than rely on unproven treatment and DIE.

The American people are not going to die…. For stinking politics. It is not going to happen.

The Masters of the Medical Universe, and their Master accomplices in Internet control/the fake media…. Are all going to be charged with criminal negligence resulting in death.

This is a quote from the six hospital 2541 Michigan hospital study. (See below for link)

Hydroxychloroquine provided a 66% hazard ratio reduction, and hydroxychloroquine + azithromycin 71% compared to neither treatment (p < 0.001).

50% reduction in death for the HCQ cocktail treated patients and 71% reduction in permanent life changing damage.

This is the biggest news story of the century.

The Masters of Medical Universe … Did not know it is a medical fact that the HCQ cocktail when given to the patient very earlier in the virus’s progression through the human body ….. Is almost a cure for covid.

I would assume everyone assumed Trump has just repeating a silly old man's tale.

They did not know Trump got the cure for covid from a Jewish doctor.

The Jewish doctor found that the HCQ cocktail cured his covid sick patients who were high risk patients.

18% of the high risk patients die if they are not treated. See Michigan study. 257 people of the 2541 patients died. The HCQ cocktail reduced the death rate by more than 50%.

The Jewish doctors results were much better. He because he did not wait 48 hours before treating the very sick covid patients. He had zero deaths and no serious damage to the patients he treated with the cocktail.

The Malaria drug that is used for the cure has been used for 20 years and its side effects are completely known.

And the same Malaria drug is in a 2005 paper published by the US Institute of Health, recommended HCG to treat coronal viruses. The covid virus is a coronal virus and is 78% identical to other coronal viruses.

The Jewish doctor has excited when he ‘discovered’ the HCQ cocktail was a cure for covid. He did not understand why the Medical System completely ignored his discovery.

The Jewish Doctor has gone on to treat 700 covid sick patient with the HCQ cocktail and had only one death.

Now think about the ‘ethics’ of the Michigan six hospital study.

18% of the Michigan randomized HCQ cocktail test 2541, or 457 very sick covid sick patients died.

Half of the 2541 covid sick who suffered permanent damage and/or death from covid….

Did not get the lifesaving HCQ cocktail.

Those that did get the HCQ cocktail, were forced to wait 48 hours….

… I would assume the masters thought the delay in giving the very sick covid patient’s treatment with the HCQ cocktail would result in the test failing….

The result of the Michigan study is that there was a 50% less death rate in those treated with the HCQ cocktail compared to those who got hope.

And in addition, there was a 70% less sever life changing damage due to covid in those patients who received the HCQ cocktail as compared to those who got hope.

I would hypothesise that if HCQ + Az > 71%, then Zn might just account for the claimed 100%.

IF it is then 100%, that’s a pretty remarkable result for any drug treatment.

This simply doesn’t add up. Does a doctor need to give himself Covid & then cure himself in order to prove/disprove its efficacity? Or a double-blind study of 10,000 doctors?

Would they all then be cancelled?

“According to a now-expired website for the group, which was founded by Dr. Simone Gold, physicians staged a “White Coat Summit” in Washington, D.C., Monday and Tuesday to “create the opportunity for frontline doctors to talk directly to the American people.”

“If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease,” the website stated.”

I think it is a good idea to have frontline doctors talking to the American people. Dr. Gold ought to hold one of these press conferences once a week, to give doctors a chance to give us their opinions. Dr. Gold said she would have a new website up and running soon.

All official government restrictions on using HCQ should be removed. If a doctor wants to prescribe it, the doctor should be able to do so without fear that pharmacists and state officials will refuse the perscription.

Trump should come out and pardon HCQ. 🙂

This should have nothing to do with politics.

Double blind is time consuming and expensive for an old genericc drug.

Double blind would NOT replicate small doses taken over a number of years by healthy people to prevent malaria — something that might reduce covid infections too.

A field study of many doctors in the high malaria rate nations could provide valuable data about HCQ that a double blind study would miss.

HCQ is not effective in all countries – malaria has become resistant

For many years the treatment of malaria in Africa has relied on chloroquine, sulfadoxine combined with pyrimethamine, and quinine, with the latter being used mainly to treat severe cases. Quinine remains efficacious, but chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine are failing, and this is leading to an increase in mortality from malaria especially in East Africa.1,2

Although resistance to chloroquine was first detected on the east coast of Africa in 1977, the drug has provided effective treatment for malaria for much of Africa for over 20 years.3,4 Unfortunately this is unlikely to be the case for sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine, the combination adopted by several African countries as the first line treatment for malaria when chloroquine has failed. Systematic surveillance for resistance to malaria drugs and the results of trials of new drugs or drug combinations that could be used to replace chloroquine or sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine are showing a worryingly high level of resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine across eastern and southern parts of Africa.5,6 Resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine is particularly severe in north east Tanzania, where clinical failure rates of up to 50% have been described,7 but high levels of resistance have been recorded also in parts of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda.8 Levels of resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine are generally lower in West Africa, but clinical failures are not infrequent, and parasites carrying mutations associated with resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine are distributed widely across West Africa. Genetic studies show that resistance to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine may have arisen in southern and eastern Africa on only a few occasions, so these resistant strains have spread extensively and rapidly.9 Sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine seems to have little future as a first line antimalarial in Africa. However, the results of a recent study by Plowe et al (p 545) in Malawi raise the possibility that this conclusion may be too pessimistic.10

OK, I’ve reviewed the play and will retract the “moron…” but stand by my assessment of the CDC, NIH, Fauci and Brix as corrupt to the point of uselessness.

My interpretation is that you are replying to Richard Greene’s comment that begins:

“The fastest..” and ends “would miss.”

He is asserting that “anecdotes from” a large number of doctors are a reliable indication regarding a disease and treatment options in the EARLY phases of the disease spread. (I contend that based on “historic” disease modeling we are still in the “early phases”. New technologies ARE allowing a more rapid response, but I am NOT going to trust the unproven “new”.)

He further asks if people ALREADY taking HCQ (alone?) for other diseases have a lower infection rate. (I haven’t heard any reports recently. The cynic in me says that is because the answer is yes, but if you have facts feel free to share them. I’ll research that.)

He asserts that medical information “should have nothing to do with politics.”

Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. The RESPONSE to this disease is ALL about politics and destroying Trump and America. We can debate that, but that is my opinion based on the FACTS that I am aware of. If you have FACTS that show otherwise then present FACTS. You are welcome to offer your OPINION, but I prefer if you present me with the FACTS you base YOUR opinion on. Don’t just parrot some “expert’s” opinion because I will view that as the logical fallacy of appealing to authority. I want the FACTS you base YOUR opinion on.

He then offers some opinion and observation about Double Blind studies.

Based on what I have heard about the studies showing HCQ to be ineffective vs what the doctors that believe it is effective, they are NOT talking about the same TREATMENT PROTOCOL.

The studies showing ineffectiveness are on patients already IN the hospital and/or late stages of the disease and that those patients have multiple OTHER health issues. Additionally, the treatment is NOT HCQ, an antibiotic and Zinc. It appears to be either HCQ alone, or HCQ and an antibiotic. No Zinc.

The effectiveness proponents are saying that the three item treatment is effective if started EARLY or prophylactically (HCQ/Zinc, the antibiotic is not needed until the disease is contracted and secondary BACTERIAL infections may occur), and is less effective as the disease progresses.

As far as I can tell, the PUBLIC discussion is NOT talking about the same treatment protocol, nor do they include the DEMOGRAPHICS of the patients involved. That means we are calling each other names over incomplete information.

Now to your reply, Jim.

You call Richard’s opinion “balderdash” yet provide no reason for it other than asserting that it “is worthless when its (sic) your butt in the sling.”

That is YOUR opinion. Obviously, Richard is in possession of FACTS that lead him to BELIEVE otherwise.

What EXACTLY is the “known working cure”?

I have NOT heard anyone say there is a universal, effective “cure” for the disease. In fact, my impression is that the VAST (as in 90% plus) majority of the people who contract the disease simply suffer through until it has run its course. 5% or so die, and 5% receive some treatment. The numbers are farted out my ass, but are probably in the ballpark.

My interpretation is that you are NOT referring to the HCQ/antibiotic/Zinc treatment as the “known working cure” “found in the wild”.

I am interpreting that sentence as saying:

Some NEW drug is the “known working cure” that is being shelved in favor of the HCQ cocktail which is “found in the wild”.

Is that incorrect?

I have heard that a variety of NEW high-profit drugs show “promise”. But they don’t assert that comprehensive Double Blind studies have been done for those. They are simply saying that the LOW cost HCQ/antibiotic/Zinc treatment doesn’t work. (Yes, I’m slipping in a “conspiracy”. NOT a “theory” in my opinion, but the reason for opposing that LOW cost treatment.)

Now comes the confusing part.

“and defer to a CDC or an NIH, looking for ‘guidance’ from a Fauci or a Birx. GTFO.“

Where has Richard deferred to the CDC or NIH or the two obviously politically biased doctors?

Maybe it is in a PREVIOUS comment that I am missing because of the design of the comment thread. (Note: There is yet another presentation when you click on Notifications in the desktop version at WordPress .com. Makes it hard to follow the threads.)

If you are responding to another comment, please reference it.

We can just drop the discussion now, or you can reply to the items I present above. Or you can just offer a new reply. Your choice.

PS – I just realized that the OP was about the VIDEO and Tech Giants banning it NOT the treatment.

PPS – Are you actually supporting the doctors in the video? I’m scrolling through the comments and see your link to the “Na” video.

PPPS – Ghalfrunt commented regarding HCQ use for malaria. Catcracking offered an FYI regarding African countries during an “indoor session”.

PPPPS – My “How do I cancel you?” comment was sarcastic.

PPPPPS – My other replies to you showed up in the thread this morning. I do NOT like the WordPress comment system.

“For example, my reply to your reading comprehension issue reply did NOT show up despite refreshing the page which means this one is unlikely to either.
Or maybe they will both appear when I revisit tomorrow morning.”

The commenting software is a little unpredictable. Sometimes my posts appear immediately, but most of the time they don’t appear immediately. It seems that the comments are on occasion not updated until the top of the hour. So if you post something and it doesn’t show up, then wait until about five minutes after the next hour and then refresh and your post should appear. That works for me most of the time.

Yes, the commenting software needs a major upgrade, especially a feature where we can see the new posts in a thread when revisiting that thread. At one time the software was set up to highlight new posts in a different color, which made it very easy to scan through the article to find new comments. Very conveniet! But then the new comment software crashed the website and we were forced to go back to the primitive comment software we are using now.

Angry Jim
Take your medications.

Now I will type slowly so even you could understand.

Covid rarely kills people.

So a doctor who had 100 suspected covid patients, and all 100 survived, may not tell us much.

In nations where HCQ is used in small doses to prevent malaria, if the covid infection rate was low, that would be useful information that could be compiled quickly.

Roy Spencer Ph.D published such a study on his blog in mid-March but never updated it — the highest malaria rate nations where HCQ use was common had very low covid rates at that time.

For your information I would be the first to ask for HCQ and zinc from a doctor if I had symptoms of covid and think Fauci is a typical government bureaucrat who pretends to be an expert but knows little.

I believe in less government and more freedom – a libertarian since 1973.

If calling me an idiot makes you feel good, then do it again — I’ve been called an idiot by people MUCH smarter than you !

I trust that you read and hopefully liked my comments to you and Jim.

I’m viewing this on a desktop. Haven’t checked my Android app. And wish I could simply see the same thread with the same features (able to “Like/Star” a comment. In fact, this webpage doesn’t show the Notification Bell.

Oh well, I hope we all benefited (I’m guessing that is spelled wrong, but Grammarly doesn’t appear to work on this page.) from our interaction.

How do I cancel you? That’s crazy talk. I bet you think that all other communicable diseases rates should have gone down because of mask-wearing, social distancing and washing. Fool! We are ALL going to DIE! someday. BTW do you know if other disease rates have gone down? No one seems to want to report on that. Common sense tells me they should.

I’m not sure if it works but would like to see a study of it when given early and given along with zinc. This study beat matches how the doctors that claim success are using it. This is basic science, come up with hypothesis and test the hypothesis. It should not be that hard and multiple studies should have already been completed months ago. Something strange is going on in that we have not seen these studies done.

The Battle Creek Sanitarium

In the UK we are now being heavily propagandised by our government’s public health bureaucrats with a pitch that goes:

obese people are more likely to die of Covid-19 so we are mandating bicycle rides on healthcare benefits and introducing a moratorium on junk food advertising before 9pm (includes yogurt and raisins) and starting an initiative to have smaller portion sizes in eateries”

They might as well say “We’re legislating smaller candy bars to save you from Covid-21”

One assumes that the at risk groups of oldies and biological males might have reacted badly to being targeted….

Donald Trump on a bicycle telling you to eat less… and go vegetarian…

– tsk –

and you moan about a licensed, practising insured MD?

Watching the UK politics at the moment is rather funny but they have history of these PC sorrs of thing. Poor old Noddy got banned for many years until he was given the PC treatment revision. Who knew that Enid Blyton was a closet Racist, xenophobe who perveted her views thru her childrens books.

A study from Portugal looking at patients receiving long term HCQ medication for rheumatological diseases:

Ferreira et al., J. Medical Virology, July 9, 2020, doi:10.1002/jmv.26286
Chronic treatment with hydroxych loroquine and SARS-CoV-2 infection

From the abstract: “After adjustment for age, sex, and chronic treatment with cor-
ticosteroids and/or immunosuppressants, the odds ratio of SARS CoV-2 infection for
chronic treatment with HCQ has been 0.51 (0.37 – 0.70). Our data suggest that chronic
treatment with HCQ confer protection against SARS CoV-2 infection.”

Translation? HCQ reduced infection rate to below those not taking it?
