Tens of Thousands of Lives Could Have Been Saved if Research on COVID Treatments Hadn’t Been Suppressed

By  Children’s Health Defense Team

The government’s “near complete” lack of guidance and research on treatment options — “apart from vaccines” — is “unconscionable,” said University of Wisconsin critical care specialist Dr. Pierre Kory.

In mid-November, Dr. Peter McCullough, vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center, and three other experts outlined safe and available treatments for the Senate’s influential Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee.

University of Wisconsin critical care specialist Dr. Pierre Kory followed up with more discussion of viable COVID treatments at a Dec. 8 appearance before the same committee.

However, as Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. observed during a March 2021 conversation with McCullough, “we’ve seen this very strange conflict … that many of those treatments that could save lives, instead of being promoted and investigated and studied by the health authorities, are instead being sabotaged and made … inaccessible.”

The government’s “near complete” lack of guidance and research on treatment options — “apart from vaccines” — is, according to Kory, “unconscionable.”

The tragic fallout of this government strategy is now becoming apparent. In a recent working paper analyzing the determinants of COVID-19 fatalities, the authors — Michigan State University economics professor Mark Skidmore and co-author Hideki Toya — estimated “if the U.S. had made [hydroxychloroquine] widely available early on, 80,000 to 100,000 lives could have been saved.”

McCullough had already reached similar conclusions when he told senators in November the U.S. “could have saved half of the lives lost” if COVID treatment protocols had not been squelched.

By March, McCullough had revised his estimate upward, asserting that “as many as 85% of COVID deaths could have been prevented through early treatment.”

Paving the way for Emergency Use Authorization

As early as March and April 2020, doctors began communicating — with cautious optimism — their experiences using interventions with years or decades of safe use behind them, including the promising repurposing of well-known drugs (for example, hydroxychloroquine, the inhaled steroid budesonide and ivermectin) as well as positive results from judicious use of supplements and therapies such as vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin B1 (thiamine), zinc, iodine and nebulized hydrogen peroxide. They also noted that some of these interventions functioned equally well as prophylaxis.

For example, a new review of randomized controlled trial evidence for ivermectin and COVID-19, published by Kory and co-authors in the American Journal of Therapeutics, points to “large, statistically significant reductions” in deaths as well as improvements in clinical recovery. The results, say these authors, clearly indicate that “an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.”

According to Kory, government agencies that refuse to recommend ivermectin as a treatment option “are not keeping up with the data,” which “have done nothing but deepen and become more consistent.”

Pushing back, some judges have ordered hospitals to give ivermectin to COVID patients who have exhausted the few treatment options that government agencies are willing to endorse. In one such case, an 80-year-old woman made a “complete turnaround” in less than 48 hours.

As for hydroxychloroquine, the database of COVID-19 hydroxychloroquine studies now numbers nearly 300. These studies consistently show positive effects with early treatment and appropriate dosing.

Over a dozen U.S. cities and counties are now pro-freedom ‘sanctuaries’ against COVID measures

Over a dozen U.S. cities and counties are now pro-freedom ‘sanctuaries’ against COVID measures
Dr Eddy Betterman

More than a dozen cities and counties in the United States are fighting COVID-19 restrictions by designating themselves pro-freedom “sanctuaries” or by simply refusing to enforce emergency orders.

(Article by Raymond Wolfe republished from LifeSiteNews.com)

The counties are primarily located in highly regulated states – like Michigan and California – that have suffered catastrophic economic and mental health impacts amid months of business closures and mask mandates.

Late last year, county commissioners in Campbell County, Virginia passed a “First Amendment Sanctuary” resolution, declaring that “(n)o Campbell County funds will be used to restrict the First Amendment.” No funding “shall be expended to aid federal or state agencies in the restriction of said rights,” it added.

“We’re not going to utilize county resources to enforce the governor’s orders,” a district representative from the county told local news. “We’re not going to aid the Virginia Department of Health in shutting our businesses down.”

At least nine other cities and counties have passed similar “sanctuary” designations, including Burrillville, Rhode IslandDelta County, MichiganKosciusko CountyCarroll County and the city of Mooresville in Indiana, and multiple jurisdictions in California and Texas.

In Michigan’s Baraga County earlier this year, the county sheriff and other officials approved the “Baraga Manifesto,” slamming Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s “clearly unconstitutional measures that treat human beings like herd animals.”

“Since March 10, 2020, the People of the State of Michigan have endured restrictions on their freedom which have not been seen in North America since the days of King George III and the American Revolution,” the officials wrote. “Enough is enough.”

“Accordingly, we hereby put the State of Michigan on NOTICE that we have no intention of participating in the unconstitutional destruction of our citizens’ economic security and Liberty,” they continued. “We further declare our intention to take no action whatsoever in furtherance of this terribly misguided agenda.” The manifesto echoes defiant local resolutions approved in Nebraska and Colorado.

At least one conservative county also has signaled its resistance to coronavirus vaccine mandates.

Assemblymen in Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska, passed a resolution in December stressing that the county supports vaccination on an “optional basis.” The statement, which passed 8-1, says that “the best interests of the state” are not served by mandating a vaccine that “many people are concerned… could potentially have serious harmful effects on themselves.”

State legislatures have pushed back against COVID-19 rules as well, with more than nine states enacting new restrictions of executives’ emergency powers or advancing vaccine passport bans since the start of the crisis.

As COVID Vaccines Drive Record Profits, CEOs Get Ultra Rich Off Massive Pay Packages, Questionable Stock Sales

Pharmaceutical companies make billions from COVID vaccines.By Megan Redshaw

Big Pharma CEOs are making millions off COVID vaccines raising questions over massive pay packages, questionable stock sales and windfall profits made possible by taxpayer funding.

As pharmaceutical companies make billions from COVID vaccines and reassure investors that plans are underway for boosters and annual shots, CEOs of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson (J&J) are pocketing millions with massive compensation packages and questionable stock sales.

In his weekly notes to investors last month, Bernstein analyst Ronny Gal offered shocking revenue estimates for Pfizer and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines — $24 billion in revenue for Pfizer compared with $14 billion for Moderna.

By the fourth quarter, Gal and his team project industrywide COVID vaccine revenues reaching more than $18 billion per quarter. The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna shots will account for roughly $11 billion of that amount with the remaining revenue split equally between J&J, AstraZeneca and Novavax, Fierce Pharma reported.

Pfizer’s first quarter revenue report released May 4 showed $3.5 billion in revenue generated during the first three months of this year by the company’s COVID vaccine — making it the biggest source of Pfizer’s revenue. The company now anticipates revenue of $26 billion for its COVID vaccine, up from its previous estimate of $15 billion.

According to a February report by Accountable.US — a nonprofit non-partisan public advocate and watchdog organization that monitors public corruption — executives at five drug companies, including Moderna, Pfizer, J&J, Emergent Biosolutions (contracted to manufacture J&J’s vaccine) and Novavax made $250 million dumping company stocks during the first six months of “Operation Warp Speed.”

According to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, from the beginning of September through November 15, 2020, executives and directors at Pfizer, Moderna, Novavax and Emergent, who received government COVID vaccine funding, made stock transactions valued at a net profit of more than $105 million.

In February, Accountable.US sent letters to Pfizer, Emergent and Moderna calling for the release of the 10b5 automatic trading plans used by top executives who made millions of dollars dumping company stock and requested CEOs freeze sales until the SEC could investigate and release updated guidance regarding automatic trading plans for companies receiving taxpayer funding and advance purchase guarantees.

Why are we being lied to about Covid? There’s no good reason

Virus Mania

Virus Mania : Torsten Engelbrecht : 9783751942539

Virus Mania

By Torsten Engelbrecht and Claus Köhnlein MD

Book Review

The main purpose of this book is to demonstrate how Big Pharma has transitioned, over three decades, into highly profitable antiviral pharmaceutical and vaccine production, while simultaneously sacrificing safety and efficacy research.

The illnesses covered in Virus Mania include polio, AIDS, bird flu, SARS, swine flu, Hepatitis C, Mad Cow Disease, seasonal influenza, cervical cancer (allegedly caused by Human Papilloma Virus), the 1918 Spanish Flu, and Covid19. The authors’ primary assertion is that there is no conclusive proof (based on Koch’s postulates*) linking specific viruses to the “viral” illnesses they allegedly cause.

Specifically they maintain that numerous viruses, starting with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) have never been successfully purified and identified via electron microscope. I found this really confusing, given that Wikipedia displays electron micrographs for all the viruses they mention (including HIV, H5N1 (bird flu virus), SARS or Hepatitis C virus).

When I “fact-checked” this by going backed to the original research, I found the book’s assertions to be essentially sound. Luc Montaigner and Robert Gallo are both credited with “discovering” HIV as the retrovirus responsible for causing AIDS. Although Montaigner first “isolated” HIV in 1982 (and won the Nobel Prize for it) and Gallo a year later, they both published in the same issue of the Science in May 1983. Montaigner obtained his “virus” sample from the lymph nodes of a gay Caucasian male with a non-specific immune deficiency disorder similar to those found in early AIDS patients. After being treated with growth hormone, the culture was then mixed with lymphocytes from umbilical cord blood, from which Montaigner isolated a virus similar to the one in his original sample

As Gallo admitted in 1991, he also isolated his new retrovirus from the same sample (which Montaigner had sent him), which he claimed had accidentally contaminated the samples from 48 different AIDS patients that he mentions in his paper.

However, according to Eleni Papadopolus, leader of the Perth HIV/AIDS group, both men were primarily focused on specific proteins they believed to be unique to HIV. For some reason, neither attempted to purify their retrovirus through a very simple density gradient process developed in 1973.**

Also neither scientist used their virus samples to see if it would infect new patients with AIDS-related illnesses.

Since the HIV virus was never isolated or purified, the HIV antibody test used to diagnose AIDS doesn’t measure antibodies to the virus itself but to specific proteins that, unfortunately, aren’t unique to HIV retroviruses

Virus Mania also casts a critical eye over “life saving” Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAARP) that is currently offered to AIDS patients who can afford the $10,000+ price tag. Although there a still no placebo controlled trials, there are enough HIV positive patients who can’t afford HAARP to do longitudinal outcome studies. These suggest it only increases life expectancy by a few years (in part due to extremely toxic side effects).

That being said, I have a problem with the authors’ assertion that AIDS represents a toxic immune deficiency disorder caused by illicit drug and “popper”*** abuse in the gay community. Their assumption, that 100% of gay men abuse either illicit drugs or “poppers” is ludicrous.

Their failure to mention numerous studies into the role of condoms in reducing AIDS prevalence is also a serious weakness of this chapter.

My favorite section was the one on the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic, which somehow broke out simultaneously in San Sebastian (Spain) and New York City in February 1918**** and couldn’t be transmitted by airborne droplets in military experiments on Navy prisoners.

The authors believe that the so-called “Spanish flu” was more likely related to widespread postwar malnutrition, possibly aggravated by heavy metal poisoning from  post-war vaccination campaigns and the use of silver, chloroform and heavy metals in many prescription and patent medicines.


*Koch’s postulates

  • The specific organism must be present in every case of the disease.
  • The specific organism must be isolated from the host with the disease and grown in pure culture.
  • The specific disease must be reproduced when a pure culture of the bacteria is inoculated into a healthy susceptible host (an animal in the case of HIV).
  • The specific organism must be recoverable from the experimentally infected host.

**According to Papadopulus, centrifuging a sample in a sucrose solution separates out retroviruses from non-viral particles that can look identical under an electron microscope. See immunity.org.uk/articles/christine-johnson/

Millennials are being devastated by chronic health conditions and no one knows why

Millennials are being devastated by chronic health conditions and no one knows why

Dr Eddy Betterman

A new Harris Poll conducted on behalf of CNBC has revealed that nearly half of all millennials born between 1981 and 1988 suffer from at least one chronic health condition that majorly inhibits their ability to live and function normally.

Perhaps the unhealthiest American generation to date, millennials are so stricken with chronic health problems that many “experts” are speculating that some of them might not make it, especially when the situation is compounded by rising inflation, stagnant wages and an all-around garbage economy.

While generations prior had cleaner food and better opportunities, millennials are struggling just to survive with poor health, crippling student loan debt, skyrocketing housing prices and now forced isolation due to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). All of this is a perfect storm for generational collapse.

“Hypertension, diabetes, and obesity drives a lot of that,” says Dr. Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, further adding that such conditions are also a recipe for cancer.

What this suggests, of course, is that millennials who were forced to grow up eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs) – the first generation to do so, by the way, since GMOs were first released in the early 1990s – are now paying a price that their parents and grandparents thankfully avoided.

Millennials were also jabbed with far more vaccines than any other generation prior, which has created a health nightmare for these middle-aged Americans who will more than likely have a much lower lifespan than those who came before them.

Many millennials don’t have insurance, which means they have to pay out-of-pocket for medical care

The most common chronic health condition reported among older millennials is migraine headaches, followed by major depression, asthma, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, neurodevelopmental disease, eating disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, high cholesterol, psychotic disorders, hyperactivity, obesity, alcohol use, substance use, tobacco use, heart disease, cancer, kidney disease and fibromyalgia.

Not only do such conditions threaten the long-term viability of a millennial’s life, but they also threaten their bank accounts. This especially true for millennials who do not have health insurance, and are thus forced to pay out-of-pocket for their medical care.

10 Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup — OffGuardian

One potential positive from the whole Covid-19 debacle is that we have learned an incredible amount about the society in which we live. This will be crucial if we manage to stave off a descent into a nightmare future of techno-fascist slavery.

We will have a new understanding of what our world has become and what we would like it to be in the decades and centuries to come. And “we” means we. While the majority have, apparently, learnt nothing at all from what has happened, they will eventually catch up.

There is no way that knowledge gained by a wide-awake 15% or 20% of the population will not end up being shared by almost everyone. Once the truth is out, it tends to stay out. As H.R. Haldeman so wisely put it, “you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube”.

Here are Ten Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup.

1 Our political system is hopelessly corrupt. Virtually all politicians are hopelessly corrupt. No political party can be trusted. They all can be, and have been, bought.

2 Democracy is a sham. It has been a sham for a very long time. There will never be any real democracy when money and power amount to the same thing.

3 The system will stop at nothing to hold on to its power and, if possible, increase its levels of control and exploitation. It has no scruples. No lie is too outrageous, no hypocrisy too nauseating, no human sacrifice too great.

4 So-called radical movements are usually nothing of the sort. From whatever direction they claim to attack the system, they are just pretending to do so, and serve to channel discontent in directions which are harmless to the power clique and even useful to its agendas.

5 Any “dissident” voice you have ever heard of through corporate media is probably a fake. The system does not hand out free publicity to its actual enemies.

6 Most people in our society are cowards. They will jettison all the fine values and principles which they have been loudly boasting about all their lives merely to avoid the slightest chance of public criticism, inconvenience or even minor financial loss.

G7: Failed Colonial Powers Telling the World What to Do

May 09, 2021 by Prabir Purkayastha

G7 are a bunch of western countries—the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada—who believe that they have the “civilizational” mandate to tell the world how it should be run.

The Foreign Ministers of G7 countries met in London this week and issued a communique painting Russia as a “malicious actor” and China as a “bully”. It had little substance apart from ticking all the “right” boxes in its anti-China and anti-Russia campaign: Uyghurs, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Crimea, Ukraine, etc. It ended with arrogating to itself the mantle of being the “rules-based international order”, distinct from what the real, lawful international order is, the United Nations and its Security Council.

This is why India’s willingness to be a part of “invitees”, to wait in the antechamber with Australia, South Korea and South Africa, while the imperial powers of the G7 decide on the weighty matters of the world, is mystifying. Self-respect would have demanded that if you do not get a seat at the table, do not go, and not wait outside the meeting room. India’s presence gives G7 a semblance of legitimacy. Why should the worldview of ex-colonial and settler-colonial powers be important for us or the world? Why should we recognize the right of the UK to speak on human rights with its record of colonial brutalities – from Mau Mau to Bengal famine? The 1943 Bengal killed an estimated 3 million people in 1943, with UK’s hero Churchill complaining that it had not killed enough as the “Indians bred too much.”

To India’s embarrassment, two members of the delegation tested Covid-19 positive, leading to the entire delegation, including the External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, having to self-isolate themselves and away from the meeting.

Who are the G7 and what is their mandate to speak on sundry subjects? G7 are a bunch of western countries—the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada—who believe that they have the “civilizational” mandate to tell the world how it should be run. The EU participates as a permanent guest, through the President of the Commission, and the President of the Council. Shorn of verbiage, the G7 represents countries that are all members of NATO. It was created in the 70s, ostensibly as a gathering of 5 industrially advanced economies, and later expanded to 7. During the Yeltsin years, it included Russia, which was subsequently expelled in 2014. The G7 then reverted to its original role as the political face of NATO. Or as The Spectator said in August 2019, “Simply by its make-up, the G7 is beginning to look like a doomed effort to preserve the hegemony of white power.”

has threatened even its ally Germany with sanctions on the undersea pipeline Nord Stream 2. The US is using the G7 to draw the EU countries in its battle against Russia. The US belief that Russia will continue to crumble, as it was doing in the kleptocratic Yeltsin years, has been belied. The Russian state has consolidated itself, both economically and militarily, and has even projected its power in Syria. It helped the Assad government to survive a three-pronged attack—of al Qaeda-Islamic State, Turkey and Israel—backed by the NATO countries.

States Turn Down Hundreds of Thousands of Vaccine Doses

COVID News Watch

The New York Times reported:

Several states are turning away COVID vaccine doses from their federal government allocations, as the daily average of coronavirus vaccine doses administered across the United States has fallen below two million for the first time since early March. Experts say the states’ smaller requests reflect a steep drop in vaccine demand in the United States.

Wisconsin officials have asked for just 8 percent of the 162,680 doses the federal government had set aside for the state next week, according to The Associated Press. In Iowa, officials asked for just 29 percent of the state’s allocated doses. And in Illinois, the state is planning to request just 9 percent of its allotted doses for everywhere, except for Chicago, for next week, The A.P. reported.

North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington State and Connecticut are also scaling back on their vaccine requests.

The COVID-19 Crisis Has Already Left Too Many Children Hungry in America

In the Survey of Mothers with Young Children, 17.4 percent of mothers with children ages 12 and under reported that since the pandemic started, “the children in my household were not eating enough because we just couldn’t afford enough food.

Counter Information

By Lauren Bauer

Global Research, May 09, 2021The Hamilton Project 6 May 2020

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurity has increased in the United States. This is particularly true for households with young children.

I document new evidence from two nationally representative surveys that were initiated to provide up-to-date estimates of the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the incidence of food insecurity. Food insecurity occurs when a household has difficulty providing enough food due to a lack of resources.

The COVID Impact Survey and The Hamilton Project/Future of the Middle Class Initiative Survey of Mothers with Young Children askedvalidatedquestions taken from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) food securityquestionnairein late April 2020.[1] Households and children are considered food insecure if the respondent indicates the following statements were often or sometimes true:

  • The food we bought just didn’t last and we didn’t…
