DONíT BOGART THAT CHLOROQUINE
Powerline ^ | MARCH 28, 2020 | SCOTT JOHNSON

Posted on 03/28/2020 7:33:47 AM PDT by Hojczyk

What can we learn from the Democrats and their media adjunct in the time of the Wuhan virus? They pose serious hazards to life and liberty. Take the remarkable case of the witless Gretchen Whitmer, governor of the great state of Michigan. Kathy Hoekstra writes in the Detroit News:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs literally threatened all doctors and pharmacists in the state who prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.

The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding as production of this medication needs to be ramped up, the letter deviates into open threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.

The letter also instructs pharmacists to ignore physician orders for this medication. Due to the debate over a pharmacist’s right to refuse to fill medications that go against their religious beliefs, this could place pharmacists in the unprecedented position of being told that they must fill prescriptions that violate their “conscience (religious belief)” but must not fill prescriptions to treat COVID-19.

Even worse, the letter indicates health care providers are “required to report” their fellow physicians who are prescribing these medications. This draconian measure carries ominous Gestapo-like overtones of neighbor reporting neighbor to “authorities.”

Hoekstra concludes with fully warranted condemnation: “The implications of Whitmer and her administration’s knee-jerk scare tactics should terrify all Michigan residents. Not only is our state’s top leader threatening the selfless health care workers who are on the frontline trying to save lives, but she’s denying possible life-saving medications to actual COVID-19 victims.”

Always always remember that few politicians have ever had a real job. As such, their judgements and intellect are right there with Greta dumlittleidiot.

Michigan doctors should go on every local news show they can and complain about how they would love to help the dear people of Michigan, but their hands are tied by the government...

Dear Michigan,

As per your recent orders, we the Doctors and Nurses in the State have organized and have determined that Not A Single Doctor or Nurse in the State will Treat ANY PUBLIC EMPLOYEE for Covid 19.

Good Luck

For example, Biden went straight from the bottom portion of his law class (76 of 85, according to Wikipedia) to the top of the ballot after at most 1 year in the private sector.

This woman is black-hole stupid:

She bitches about Trump not doing something???

She forbids doctors from using a drug known for working.

DJT’s comment about her being “over her head” is a major understatement.

The ONLY reason that Democrat Governors are putting the hammer down on hydroxychloquine prescriptions is the fear that it might work. If it works, then PDJT's reelection is flat out guaranteed.

Yes, the Democrats will gleefully kill Americans (of either party) in order to beat Orange Man.

The people of Michigan are just about as brain dead as the people of Mexifornia. They keep on electing and re-electing witless scumbags like Granholm and Whitmer over and over again, and all the other Marxocrat azzholes up and down the line, like Stabenow and Peters. They deserve whatever comes their way from their repeated and relentless asininity.

This is because Trump recommended it.

What does “bogart” mean?

Watched Tucker's show last night. He had an NYC ER physician on who stated he was taking Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) as a prophylaxis. I bet that he is not alone among medical personnel on the front-lines combating the virus taking the drug.

I now suspect that the edicts coming from the governors of Nevada and Michigan are aimed at hoarding the drug to protect their medical personnel. This is a sure sign that the drug works. Once that is known widely by the public, there will a huge demand for the drug, which at this point supply cannot meet. IMO the supposed "delay" in running the clinical trials in NYC until next week is just buying time for production to ramp up.

To keep it selfishly to yourself. It is usually used as a pejorative term when a person doesn’t pass the joint, but instead tries to get an extra toke or two before passing it.It was in the movie Easy Rider, and Little Feat did a version as well.

It’s from an old 1960s hippie song “Don’t Bogart that joint, my friend, pass it over to me.” The idea was that you were beibg selfish, like mean ‘ol Humphrey Bogart, if you kept toking on the doob instead of passing it around.

Lil’ Haff Whit has (da da da da DA Duh) a degree in Communications!

Whoo hoo. That’s what yuh get if yer too stupid to major in Journalism, which slobbering Mongoloid somatic crossover genetic defectives can get a degree in.

Or bubble headed bleached blondes on the ASU calendar, which Wretched clearly is not.

Just daddy’s little thugette, the Rat party version of Ilsa Koch. She even looks like her.

What’s amazing is that the Left used to be on the other side, railing at the inertia of the medical bureaucracy: everyone should go back and watch the movie Lorenzo’s Oil, which is now 27 years in the past, starring none other then the Leftist Icon Susan Sarandon.

Says it all about human determination in the face of a self serving risk averse bureaucracy.
