    Ohio state senator and United States Senate candidate Matt Dolan, a Republican, backed the idea of “racism as a public health crisis” in June 2020. Dolan said in a statement after the death of George Floyd: I serve with Senator Steve Huffman. I have only seen him be diligent in his work and friendly to everyone he works with. We don’t always agree, but I have not found him to be disagreeable. However, I don’t know what is in his heart, but I do know this is not the guy I thought would be an impediment to improved race relations....

    Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are reportedly planning to update guidance regarding patients with the Chinese coronavirus. Those who test positive no longer need to isolate themselves for five days, according to an article published Tuesday by the Washington Post. “The agency is loosening its covid isolation recommendations for the first time since 2021 to align it with guidance on how to avoid transmitting flu and RSV, according to four agency officials and an expert familiar with the discussions,” the report stated.
  • A Blatantly Unconstitutional Gun Edict Highlights the Hazards of Emergency Powers

    When New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued "a public health emergency order" that purportedly suspended the right to bear arms in Albuquerque and surrounding Bernalillo County last week, her justification was seemingly straightforward. "I have emergency powers," she told The New York Times. "Gun violence is an epidemic. Therefore, it's an emergency." Grisham's stunt was widely condemned as blatantly unconstitutional, even by some leading gun control supporters. But her legal rationale also underlined the perils posed by the sweeping emergency powers that legislators in many states have granted governors -- a problem that was abundantly clear during the COVID-19...

    In March of 2020 New Mexico Governor Michelle Grisham locked down her state due to the coronavirus threat. New Mexico was ranked 39th out of the 50 states in coronavirus cases at that time. But after Grisham locked down the state she made a private call to her favorite jewelry store to make a purchase. Of course, she was able to do this because she is the Democrat governor. But she got caught and started changing her story. Then in 2021 the far left governor was caught using taxpayer money to pay for groceries, whiskey and tequila. ... FOX News...

    GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) appeared to have a medical episode on Wednesday afternoon that caused him to freeze while in mid-speech during a televised press conference.

    “The absence of evidence of effectiveness is not the same as having evidence of ineffectiveness,” chirps Jennifer Nuzzo of Brown University’s School of Public Health in the latest bid to explain away the Great Mask-Mandate Fiasco of 2020 onward. That is, she ignores the elephant in the room: For years, Public Health Inc. lectured America to mask up — and kept them out of their kids’ schools and countless public places if they didn’t — on the basis of no evidence at all. Her New York Times essay is yet another effort to deflect from that betrayal, after the gold-standard...

    As remarkable as her surgery sounds, she isn’t the oldest Israeli recipient of a pacemaker. Over the last decade, Atar’s team has placed pacemakers inside the bodies of at least three others older than 100. The eldest was 107.... Doctors judge according to biological age, and not chronological age, considering factors like a clear mind, lifestyle and diet, normal or low blood pressure, kidney function, the absence or not of diabetes. “All are predictors of longevity,” said Atar ... “May you live until 120” is a traditional Jewish birthday blessing, and Israelis already enjoy one of the longest life expectancies...

The author of two books on how bad medical policy persists long after it has been recognized as ineffective or even deadly (Malignant: How Bad Policy and Bad Evidence Harm People With Cancer and Ending Medical Reversal: Improving Outcomes, Saving Lives), Prasad has become a lightning rod during the COVID pandemic because he is outspoken both in his support for vaccines and his...

    The Massachusetts Public Health Department (DPH) allegedly “worked with” Google to install its COVID-19 contact tracing app onto more than one million android devices without users’ permission or knowledge, a New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) lawsuit claims. The app was first released in April 2021, but the DPH had a version secretly installed onto devices beginning that June after few Massachusetts residents installed it voluntarily, according to the lawsuit filed Monday in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts. The app allegedly causes devices to emit and receive Bluetooth signals even when users do not opt into COVID-19 exposure notifications, and...

    Now that some sanity has returned to public health, we can have a sensible discussion about COVID. Is it a unique virus or just another flu virus?Politicians and public health officials would have you believe that it is unique and that you should follow "their" science to deal with it. But, as you will see, their intentions can be capably described by H.L. Mencken: "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."James O.

    New York’s top health official is urging the public to get vaccinated against poliovirus if they haven’t yet done so. State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett declared polio "an imminent threat to public health" in New York State Wednesday, Sept. 28. The declaration will free up resources to help local health departments set up vaccination clinics and better focus their outreach efforts to unvaccinated or under-vaccinated New Yorkers, Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office said. Health officials are hoping to boost immunization rates particularly in areas that have been most affected by the virus and among children. “Thanks to long-established school immunization...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) presented Dr. Simone Gold a flag that was once flown over the U.S. Capitol on Friday, following her 45 days in jail for being involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach and stepping inside restricted premises. “Dr. Simone Gold is a patriot and an American hero,” Gohmert said in a Sept. 9 statement. The in-person grant upon Gold’s release from the Miami Federal Detention Center was to honor the Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist’s “invaluable work and contributions to public health, medical freedom, and our God-given constitutional rights,” according to the Republican lawmaker.

    The Langya henipavirus, which can be transmitted from animals to humans, has been discovered in China, with 35 human infections reported so far, Taiwan’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said, adding that the nation would establish a nucleic acid testing method to identify the virus. A study titled “A Zoonotic Henipavirus in Febrile Patients in China” that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Thursday said that a new henipavirus associated with a fever-causing human illness was identified in China. The study said an investigation identified 35 patients with acute infection of the Langya henipavirus in China’s...

    (Translation) MIAMI — Since the beginning of the most recent monkeypox outbreak in May, about 20 countries in the Americas have reported over 5,000 cases, but mass vaccination is not recommended for now since the risk of infection among the general population is very low, the Pan American Health Organization [PAHO] said in a press conference today. Most cases have been detected in the United States, Canada, and Brazil among men who have sex with men and are between 25 and 45 years of age, PAHO said. However, it clarified that, for now, no deaths have been reported in the...

    A new CDC publication ("Seroprevalence of Infection-Induced SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies — United States, September 2021–February 2022") should clarify for everyone what was always true – you can’t stop a respiratory virus. Despite the warnings of some scientists, who were pilloried then and who should be apologized to and applauded now, the United States and most other countries undertook an absurd exercise in hubris. We were told by our public health experts that through testing and tracing, use of plastic barriers, social distancing, closing schools and businesses, wearing masks, even vaccination, we could limit the spread of CV-19. This was expensive and...

    Podcaster and comedian Joe Rogan is clearly fed up with uber-liberal mega-billionaire Bill Gates and his incessant claims that meat-eating is sinful and unhealthy, while at the same time allegedly not being in the best shape himself. Rogan addressed the “problematic” methodology of a study published in The Lancet during the Feb. 25 edition of The Joe Rogan Experience. The study alleged that 2019 estimates of deaths traced to unprocessed red meat intake have spiked 36-fold. The controversial study listed the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as one of its key funders. A rebuttal published in The Lancet warned that...

    On August 6, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control released a report that the agency claimed showed “Vaccination Offers Higher Protection than Previous COVID-19 Infection.” This assertion came amidst a public battle with Sen. Rand Paul, as the CDC released this data from Kentucky, Paul’s home state. Yet after indisputable scientific evidence continued to pile up in favor of natural immunity, the CDC finally capitulated on January 19, 2022, recognizing the superiority of natural immunity over vaccination alone: “Between May and November 2021, people who were unvaccinated and did not have a prior COVID-19 infection remained at the highest risk...

Shelter-in-place orders reduced mortality by 2.9 percent on average, they found.“While this meta-analysis concludes that...
