    Back in June we reported that according to the latest data,US mortalities in 2020 were not materially different from the previous 5 years.We posted updated data through week 34 in the 2019-2020 season.Now there is a new report at by Colleen Huber, NMD, that reveals total US deaths this year are actually lower than annual US deaths in 20 of the last 21 years. According to As of this writing, 32 weeks have elapsed in 2020. However, for each previous year, 52 weeks have already elapsed. How then can we compare deaths from all causes in 2020 to...
  • “Without a Doubt Hydroxychloroquine Protocols Helped Me – I Was Symptom Free in 4 Days” – Congressman Louie Gohmert Speaks Out on His Bout with COVID-19

    Texas Republican Louie Gohmert announced in July he had tested positive for the China conservative. Rep. Gohmert later announced he will be taking hydroxychloroquine to battle COVID-19 after being diagnosed with the virus. The Texas Republican, 66, said he and his doctor agreed that he should begin taking the anti-malarial drug, which some doctors believe can reduce the effects of the coronavirus.“My doctor and I are all in,” Gohmert said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “I got a text before I came on from a friend doctor who just found out he had it, and he started...
  • LOCKDOWN LUNACY 3.0: It's over

    If you’re hoping the COVID-19 pandemic will go on forever, this post may disappoint you. And, I get it. We have gone frothing-at-the-mouth nuts over a slightly above-normal virulence virus, with a unique and obvious age-distribution pattern that should have made containment easy and panic completely unnecessary. And, if you’re living in the United States, like I am, you probably think my declaration that this pandemic is “over” to be somewhere between wishful thinking and incredibly premature, and I hear you, too, although forgive me if I’m not sure you’re the one thinking clearly, given some of the things I’ve...

    A few Quesitons about Quercitin if anyone knows the answer 1: Does a person have to take it (Along with Zinc of course) regularly to get protection? 2: Can a person take it like say in the morning before they have to go to hospital, or to health center, or to store where there are apt to be a lot of folks and be protected for that day? (And maybe take it several days after to be sure? thinking of high risk folks with health conditions) 3: The reason for the questions is because someone has kidney damage, and apparently...

    "We're doing it simultaneously. In Russia they decided to do the clinical trial in parallel and collect the data, as is customary in the West, as well as allowing in some cases that we call 'compassion treatments' for some patients" Those words from Dr. Zeev Rotstein, director of Hadassah Hospital in Israel, getting into the details of what's really going on as Russia has announced that its developed the first effective coronavirus vaccine.....

  • JAIL FAUCI: US Has Almost 30 Times More COVID-19 Deaths per Population than Third-World Countries that Promoted Early Hydroxychloroquine Use

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 08/12/2020 | Jim Hoft
    The liberal mainstream media can’t hide this truth from the public forever.The latest international testing of hydroxychloroquine treatment of coronavirus shows countries that had early use of the drug had a 79% lower mortality rate than countries that banned the use of the safe malaria drug. This means that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, the CDC, the liberal fake news media and the tech giants have been pushing a lie that has had deadly consequences!America has lost (reportedly) over 150,000 lives. That could have been lowered by possibly 80% if HCQ use would have been promoted in the US!We are...

    Now European doctors gather to ask how did we get here with COVID. On July 27, 2020, a group of frontline doctors in the US held a gathering in Washington D.C. where they expressed their concerns with COVID from a frontline doctor point of view. We reported: Frontline doctors from across the US held a “White Coat Summit” on Monday in Washington DC to dispel the misinformation and myths surrounding the coronavirus.The doctors are very concerned with the disinformation campaign being played out in the far left American media today. From their website: “If Americans continue to let so-called experts...

    Noisy Room ^ | August 12, 2020 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, between magazine photoshoots and throwing the first pitch at baseball games, seems to have forgotten the cardinal rule of medicine – first, do no harm. By downplaying the effectiveness and highlighting the alleged dangers of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), it can be argued he has cost American lives and will cost more, coming as he has between real doctors and real patients and real-world experience with a drug that has been safely used to treat conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis for six decades without any serious side effects. Fauci is in love with clinical studies, which are fine...

    My Daughter got the call she had been waiting almost 7 years for, exactly a week before Easter and they had a donor match for my grand son who has waiting all his life for new intestines to be transplanted... at the same time, they did stomach, pancreas and liver too. She was very apprehensive at the time, because coronavirus was into full swing by then, his transplant surgery was in Pittsburgh and they were very high risk there at the time. Everything went well and he has healed up very good...About 6 weeks ago now, the hospital tried to...

    American Greatness ^ | August 11, 2020 | Adam Mill
    New York spends more money per capita on healthcare than any other state in the Union. It ranks third in the country in physicians per 100,000 population at 375.1. In terms of raw infrastructure and medical resources, New York should have been one of the best places in the world to receive treatment for COVID-19. Yet analysis of New York’s COVID-19 statistics reveal it to be one of the most deadly places in the world for a COVID-19 patient. Consider that the tiny country of San Marino reports the worst “deaths per 1 million population” for COVID-19 at 1,238 per...

    President Trump announced Monday that Dr. Scott Atlas is joining the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Dr. Atlas is a former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center and a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution. Before joining the team, Atlas penned an op-ed in The Hill that showed his approach to the coronavirus outbreak is much different than that of Anthony “Chicken Little” Fauci, who favors draconian lockdowns and now wants people to wear goggles to avoid getting a virus that most people recover from easily....

    I saw an article on FR late last night calling for Harris to be treated in the same manner as Palin was by Democrats in 2008. Let us not forget or remind the American People that Harris got her start in politics, not because of her drive and intelligence, but as Willi Brown's Sweet Little Thang. Conservatives need to show up at every Biden-Harris with a pair of plastic legs with heels pointed skyward to remain the American People daily, how she got her start in politics.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama used her podcast to thank the pandemic "for opening our eyes to a new way of distributing the nation's wealth. Barack always thought it would require an act of Congress to implement the kind of redistribution needed to achieve social justice. But the unilateral power wielded by almost every governor during the COVID crisis showed that it could be accomplished much more easily than he thought." "In state-after-state we saw governors decreeing which businesses were essential and which were not," she observed. "Declaring a business nonessential effectively confiscated an owner's right to earn an income...

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he has ordered the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to cut off the water and electricity to any homes, venues, or businesses that defy the COVID-19 safety measures he has imposed on the City. "Quite frankly, I must admit that I am fed up with people trying to exercise freedoms that I have put off limits during this pandemic," the Mayor said. "I have given the people in this City the opportunity to voluntarily obey me. Most have complied, but others insist that their freedom to earn a living, go to...
  • Ivermectin is a winner treating Covid-19 patients in the Dominican Republic

    Physicians in the Dominican Republic are all recommending people keep social distance, use of facial masks and hand washing hygiene, stay-at-home and other measures suggested by the government following World Health Organization protocols. But what if you think you have caught the coronavirus? Local physicians have been using low costing hydroxychloroquine (plaquinol) and ivermectin. Tocilizumab (actemra) is a high cost pharmaceutical that is used for patients in serious conditions, also remdesivir, an antiviral. After a first whirlwind learning curve in treating patients, there are now treatments that are showing high efficacy. The largest private hospital in Puerto Plata is betting...

    The Politics of Duh ^ | August 7, 2020 | Alex50
    It has now become apparent the spike in cases and certainly in deaths in the border states of Arizona, California and Texas closely parallel the rise in cases in Mexico. The Brazilian population in Florida counts more than 300,000, one of the largest Brazilian communities in the United States. And if you think the travel ban prevents Brazilians from entering the U.S., this document details the many exceptions to the rule. It is generally accepted that it takes approximately five days to get infected with coronavirus and for those who tragically succumb to the illness, which is a tiny percentage...

    Big League Politics ^ | August 10, 2020 | Richard Moorehead
    A northern California county has approved a trial plan to pay anyone who tests positive for the coronavirus disease $1,250, with the idea that paying them to stay home is the only way to deter them from spreading the disease. Alameda county supervisors are arguing that it’s the only way to prevent people from spreading the disease. “Many of them just could not afford to lose two weeks’ worth of wages to quarantine and isolate,” said policy director Vanessa Cedeńo. It’s unclear how Alameda County plans to deal with the prospect of individuals intentionally contracting coronavirus with the promise of...

    California Department of Public Health Director Dr. Sonia Angell announced her resignation, effective immediately, around 10 PM Pacific time Sunday night – the second high-ranking state official to resign in that manner in a week. She did not give a reason, but the revelation that a “glitch” resulted in a backlog of 300,000 test results and the complete breakdown of the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE) might have something to do with it...
  • Spock’s Brain – And Joe Biden’s

    The third season opener of the iconic sci-fi series “Star Trek” was an episode titled “Spock’s Brain” in which an unidentified humanoid female from a seemingly advanced civilization transports aboard the starship Enterprise and, after rendering the entire crew unconscious, absconds with science officer’s Spock’s brain. Capt Kirk and the crew spend the episode tracking down the brain and figuring out a way to make Spock whole and functional again. It is unlikely aliens have descended and absconded with Joe Biden’s brain, but there is no clear answer to Joe Biden’s incoherent outbursts, inability to complete coherent sentences or thoughts,...
