Misrepresentation again -- Trump and Fox news are all-in on ANY drug that works against Coronavirus, not just Hydroxychloroquine.

Trump and Fox even pronounced OPENLY their hope that Gilead's Remdesivir would work. It's just that media is sooo tone deaf, they keep harping on Hydroxychloroquine alone.

Of course, this article now begins to tout Remdesivir. It says: "The thing that's interesting is that Trump could have bet on remdesivir." <--- WHY? Has it been proven already compared to Hydroxychloroquine?

Secondly, Trump did not say it is the silver bullet. He said Let doctors try it. He even said: "It may work, it may not work, but let's try". How is that calling it a silver bulet?

This article's title is attacking strawmen.

Why? Because there are 100 plus million doses just laying around at a buck a dose. Plain fakery, again.

I wonder how many Americans have been saved by Hydroxychloroquine since we started using it for the virus?

I really do not expect any better from the Beijing Post. Does anybody?

Yeah, but if the president supports Remdesivir it will become evil.

A quick look at Chinese money and the StanfordAdvocate.com (not an .edu) makes it clear that this is a Chi-Com hit piece.

China has been trying to obtain patents and hoard all these drugs since the first outbreak was discovered. Very telling.

“There is not, as of writing, any medication which has been shown in controlled trials to significantly hasten recovery from covid-19, “
They sure as heck do not want anyone to learn that simple old vitamin C in high doses is actually a VERY potent anti-viral and is already in use saving lives from this virus.

I for one have HAD ENOUGH of the deliberate supression of life saving information from the WHO, Facebook, Google and DR.FAUCI.

WHY do we tolerate life saving information being withheld when our loved ones are dying. ENOUGH! Stand up and do something. We are AMERICANS, NOT A BUNCH OF SHEEP BEING LED TO SLAUGHTER!

The establishment press is truly proving it’s absolutely worthless to Americans in a time of real crisis.

"The CIA even warned its employees about using the drug due to the possibility of "sudden cardiac death.""

If that statement is true then it is just another example of CIA disinformation aimed at undermining President Trump.

How would the CIA be making medical recommendations that are the opposite of the FDA and CDC?

Hydroxychloroquine, Chloroquine, and Azithromycin are all FDA approved drugs in widespread use. The first two are often prescribed to tourists headed for the beach somewhere that has malaria bearing mosquitoes. Does any sensible person believe that the CDC, doctors, and drug manufacturers would recommend a drug for vacationers, including their children, that had such a high risk it was too risky for CIA agents?

Same old same old distortion BS - like when POTUS said it would be nice if they could get the country up and running again by Easter. Just a non-committal comment. Next thing you know it was "The Easter Deadline!" on every news channel. There was some spiking the football when Easter came and went with everything still static. Never seen such a bunch of cheerleaders of evil.

One drug costs $1 a pill and the other costs $1,000 a pill. Guess which one the media likes.

Dr. Zelenko’s out-patient treatment regimen, which costs only $12, is as follows:

1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days

2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days

3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days

The author is a mealy-mouthed hack, relying weasel words and phrases to cast doubt and confusion. Doesn’t have the gonads to just come out and say what is on his mind.

More jingoistic propaganda.

The oeft does not want HCQ therapy to be seen as effectibe !

Why?

becuiase HCQ and Zinc vitamine can be used as a preventative to Covid-19 infection.

And the HCQ can help open America’s economy quickly.

Remdesivir cannot be used as a preventative.

The WAPO bastards are still trying to hoodwink America while we all pay the Red Chinese butcher’s bill.

HCQ therapy for 5 days costs $20.00, can be taken a home.

The Demrezafear, $1000.00, only in hospital

Who is yer daddy?

RELEASE THE HYDROXY-CHLOROQUIN plus Zinc as a Preventative.

Put the country back to work.

LETS ROLL!

MUST SEE here:

Dr. Zelenko’s HCQ therapy letter:

RE: because HCQ and Zinc vitamine can be used as a preventative to Covid-19 infection.

We have a topic PRECISELY talking about the issue of using HCQ as preventative in this thread:

http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3836677/posts

The conclusion seems to be that it does not. At least not always.

RE: One drug costs $1 a pill and the other costs $1,000 a pill.

I’m still trying to find out where we get that $1000 figure for Remdesivir. I can’t find it anywhere.

Do you have reliable source for this?

Indeed. Reminds me of a few weeks ago "Hey, losers, face masks are silly and do no good. Besides, we desperately need each one for medical staff and first responders." Followed by: "As governor I hereby order all to wear a face mask to go food shopping." And state ordered stay at home shelter in place mandates will end soon but you will have to wear a face mask in public. Or face arrest.

Now Chicoms in desperate arm wrestling financial battle to gain control of anti-virus drugs touted in Trump press conferences, once denounced as quackery by the media. Major drug companies will fight to the end to keep control.

The state of “journalism” these days is so disgusting, and there are so many questions left unanswered. They COULD BE investigating and uncovering new information, BUT NO! All they can do is attend presidential pressers, ask snarky questions, and report how stupid they think the administration is. Enemedia.
