Hydroxychloroquine, and CSIS had it right in 2010: Links 1, May 25, 2020

1. Morocco to roll out antimalarials against coronavirus

(There is a bit of confirmation bias on my part here. I do not know this source at all. But the deck is so stacked against Chloroquine use that it feels like we need to shine a light in every corner to get any balance, or much more importantly, truth in this matter.)

Rabat, March 24, 2020 -Morocco has authorised hospitals to use antimalarial drugs in treating the new coronavirus, according to a document seen by AFP, as scientists urge caution over encouraging results from small trials.

The Moroccan health ministry on Monday gave hospitals and regional health directors the green light to start using hydroxychloroquine and related compound chloroquine “in the care of confirmed COVID-19 cases”.

In a message seen by AFP, it said that “efforts have been made to ensure the availability of these medicines”, urging caution in how the stocks are managed.

Rabat last week ordered the Moroccan branch of French drug maker Sanofi to hand over its entire stock of Nivaquine and Plaquenil, both of which contain chloroquine.

2. CSIS warns Trudeau government investment by foreign ‘state-owned enterprises’ is threat to national security

Foreign investment in Canada may endanger national security, according to a 34-page report tabled in Parliament Wednesday by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).

 

In the 2019 annual public report, CSIS said “a number of state-owned enterprises and private firms” with close ties to foreign governments may be a problem, but didn’t name the enterprises or countries.

 

“While the vast majority of the foreign investment in Canada is carried out in an open and transparent manner, a number of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and private firms with close ties to their government and or intelligence services can pursue corporate acquisition bids in Canada or other economic activities,” says the CSIS report.

 

“Corporate acquisitions by these entities pose potential risks related to vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, control over strategic sectors, espionage and foreign influenced activities, and illegal transfer of technology and expertise. CSIS expects that national security concerns related to foreign investments or other economic activities in Canada will continue.”

 

The report went on to say, “CSIS expects that national security concerns related to foreign investments or other economic activities in Canada will continue.”

3. June 2010: Government infiltrated by spies, CSIS boss says

(This seems like the right time to revisit this 2010 story of Canada’s most known counter-espionage service, CSIS, which tried to warn Canadians directly in 2010 about the extent of Chinese influence in our government right to the level of MPs. I think we know who some of them are now, don’t we?)

At least two provincial cabinet ministers and a number of other government officials and employees are under the control of foreign countries as part of espionage schemes, Canada’s top security official said Tuesday.

 

In an exclusive interview on CBC’s The National, CSIS director Richard Fadden said foreign powers are infiltrating Canadian political circles and influencing public servants, fuelling a growing concern about economic espionage in Canada.

 

Economic espionage, the trading, sharing or theft of federal secrets, can be considered a crime. He would not name the provinces the cabinet ministers are from.

 

4. If you can prick yourself to stay awake through this banker’s answers, it almost sounds like he is saying that the reserve rate, that amount of YOUR money banks have to keep on hand in case you want it, is totally fake.

5. May 6th enjoyed a No-mask Fauci

His voice seems familiar somehow…

6. Montreal cops emulate their Western authoritarian brethren with a $1500.00 fine using a measuring tape to check distance. None of the cops have masks. All of them are close together. Its a safe bet they do not all live together with their ponies.

7. China EXPOSED: Xi ‘maliciously’ spread virus with ‘unthinkable’ secret plot claims expert

CHINA may have used the deadly coronavirus pandemic to “even the playing field” on the world stage, an expert has claimed, as the communist nation’s initial response to the crisis is scrutinised.

 

Asia political expert and author Gordon Chang claimed China‘s President Xi Jinping‘s actions suggest he intended to spread coronavirus around the world – something the communist nation has always denied. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Chang said he believed China had behaved maliciously and he claims there was evidence to suggest they had taken steps to attack all nations of the world. He also insisted the origin of the virus was not as important as scrutinising China for how they behaved at the beginning of the pandemic.

8. UK to Explore Self Sufficiency to End Reliance on China

The British government will make plans to reduce the United Kingdom’s reliance on imports from foreign countries like China after a study revealed that the UK is reliant on the communist country for the supply of 71 “critical goods” including pharmaceuticals, personal protective equipment (PPE), and electronics.

 

Headed by Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Dominic Raab, codename “Project Defend” will examine the resilience of the UK’s economy and supply chain vulnerabilities of “essential supplies” strategic for national security.

9. Loudspeaker Islamic Call to Prayer May Become Permanent Fixture in Britain

(Like ANYONE did not know that is what this was about. The special rule to allow it during the lockdown, which made no sense because you cannot gather for prayer, was clearly to normalize it)

Mosques across Great Britain could begin daily broadcasts of the Islamic call to prayer through loudspeakers after they were given special dispensation to play the adhan in the holy month of Ramadan.

 

Some 25 mosques in London and dozens more throughout the country began to use public address systems to connect with Muslims last month as they were unable to attend religious services during the coronavirus crisis.

The scheme was started by the London council of Kensington and Chelsea, which gave permission to the Al-Manaar mosque — the largest mosque in the borough — to begin broadcasting the Islamic message every night during Ramadan, an act that was previously illegal under noise pollution laws.

 

The move was picked up by the Waltham Forest Council in north-east London, which allowed nine mosques to play the call to prayer through loudspeakers every night and twice on Fridays to mark the Jumu’ah — the Friday prayer celebrated by Muslims) — according to the Mail on Sunday.

  1. #1 A friend sent me this, and I am not familiar with the source. If accurate, then we won’t know whether HCQ is protective. We’ll have to wait until the next SARS outbreak.

    Searching on SARS-II …
    http://www.sci-news.com/medicine/sars-cov-2-coronavirus-pangolins-08432.html “To effectively control the disease and prevent new spillovers, it is critical to identify the animal origin of SARS-CoV-2,” said Dr. Jinping Chen from the Guangdong Institute of Applied Biological Resources and colleagues.

    endemic versus epidemic
    https://www.scienceboard.net/index.aspx?sec=sup&sub=cell&pag=dis&ItemID=799
    SARS-CoV-2, a novel coronavirus that emerged in 2019, is the seventh human coronavirus to be described. Four human coronaviruses circulate seasonally and cause common colds (alphacoronaviruses NL63 and 229E; betacoronaviruses HKU1 and OC43). Two other coronaviruses, SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, have crossed from animal sources and have not become endemic.

  2. #7 It is worse when a country glorifies a victory.
    Imagine what it would mean if the PRC said if was proud of any of these:
    (a) being behind the decisions that caused the spread
    (b) having contributed to setting off the infection
    (c) steering the WHO to make the decisions it has made

  3. 1. Related: “FDA Bureaucrat Brags He Blocked Physician Prescribing of Hydroxychloroquine in Early COVID-19”
    by Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. – May 19, 2020

    Why are U.S. doctors and nurses prevented from using HCQ prophylactically when workers in China, South Korea, India, Brazil, Argentina, Israel, Australia, Turkey, France, and other countries can be protected?

    • Doesn’t that make your head explode? I can’t believe how many extremely well-educated extremely high-placed Democrat judges, politicians, journalists, lawyers, and doctors so eagerly lie their heads off and break all the rules when it comes to supporting the Democrat Party. They are like so many Nazi fanatics. This bureaucrat thinks that Donald Trump is worse than Hitler and if some people have to die without hydroxychloroquine then that’s a risk he’s willing to take if it gives the President a black eye. The guy should be tried for murder…

      • A bunch of people should be tried for murder because of their actions in this plaque, I don’t know how many will be but a lot should.

  4. https://www.foxnews.com/health/who-hydroxychloroquine-chloroquine-coronavirus-safety-review

    OK, so Fox News is now treating the hydroxychloroquine issue as being entirely resolved with the drug being proven to be of no use in curing the coronavirus as well having such dangerous side-effects as to be simply too dangerous to risk. They are treating it as if it is water under the bridge, an issue from the past. And who would have thunk it, WHO found a reason to halt their big HCQ test over the heart arrhythmia issue, which they just can’t stop talking about even though it’s as rare as hen’s teeth.

    So that’s it. Hydroxychloroquine is officially dead. It’s been shut down by the Principal and banned from the school. The Turks and the South Koreans must be simply suffering from a mass-outbreak of schizophrenia. Yeah, that makes sense…

    We are being controlled by evil Super-Villains, folks, and here’s just a little of the proof of it. Somebody has the power to turn the entire world media and scientific community on their effing ears with a lousy phone call and everybody acts as if it’s normal. Well It isn’t!
    They are telling us the grass is blue and the sky is green and we keep being too dumb to notice…

    • So many physicians are working with it and its success rate is excellent.
      Evil forces working behind the curtain as they’re witnessing their vaccine loose popularity among many citizens.
      Sadly, many people can’t read through the lines of a media report.
      There are Trillions of Dollars at stake.

      • For some it is the trillions of dollars that is their motive, for others it is to be able to hang on to the power that is the drug of all left wing politicians. Look at how so many Dem Mayors and Governors are turning into petty tyrants that are going into withdrawal symptoms when anyone tells them they can’t issue the orders that violate the law.

    • And what do you wanna bet that WHO had this little wrinkle all figured out when they started their little “study”. They don’t want to study hydroxychloroquine, they want to discredit it and consign it to the trash heap and then declare that Donald Trump was a wreckless idiot for insisting it was a miracle cure in the first place. That’s what this is all about… Proving Donald Trump wrong. These Democrats have gone completely insane…

      • The Dems can’t let Trump get re-elected. Period. Look how opportunistic they’ve been with this virus. Don’t you know it, Chris, with them making sure HDC is condemned. Lives be damned.

        The thing is, Richard is right about the civil war. Only it is currently being fought in this asymmetrical way. The Left attacks PT SYMBOLS. Constantly and unrelentingly. And it works to a degree only while they have MSM on their side. And the flyovers and red-pilled coasters see right through it. Even before PT admitted to taking Hydroxychloroquine they were trying like anything to marginalize it. Notice that since then–like last week–they’ve buried it?

        I’m worried that in their maniacal desperation as the election nears, and they don’t see their odds improving, they’ll try even crazier things. Attacking symbols, only, won’t suffice. What happened the last time a President went against the deep state? Of course, conspiracy theories aside, wouldn’t life for these scumbags be so much easier if PT weren’t around? Seriously. What will happen this summer? What will happen with a “second wave”?

        My guess is the big fight comes when PT refuses to shut down over the semi-fictitious second wave and the Free-Shit Army (sorry CD but sometimes ya just gotta) goes berserk.

        • You are right to be worried, the people in the Red States and the Red Pilled on the coasts are going to be physically attacked before much longer. Trump is winning every battle and the left knows that if he is re-elected he and his people are lame ducks who will have nothing stopping them from doing everything possible to remove the Deep State and restore the rule of law. Look at how Pelosi and the other High Ranking Dems are openly showing the world how much they want to be dictators.

          The thing that surprises me is that they haven’t started using violence before now, they are letting a counter revolution be started over their power grabs under the guise of fighting the Wuhan Flu and so far aren’t resorting to violence. Of course they may be setting on their crazies so they can generate a lot of violence and chaos closer to the election. Remember one of the goals of the left is to create so much chaos in all Western Nations that they are ungovernable giving the left the excuse to step in and set up dictatorships.

          You are right we are in the non violent phase of an asymmetric civil war, They aren’t using violence yet but it is getting close to when they will have to use it or lose the opportunity to take over the Western Nations.
