5 items on enemy propaganda and the Wuhan Flu: Links 1, February 15, 2021

1. BPS short video of disturbing yet factual observations, all of which are excellent data points showing that what we used to call “Media” and “News” is in fact, enemy propaganda.

2. How Many Americans Has the American Medical Establishment Killed?

[…]

Along with the media — from The New York Times to Google/YouTube, Facebook and Twitter — Americans have been denied both life-saving information and life-saving drugs.

I am specifically referring to hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. These drugs (along with zinc), which are as safe as any medicines humanity has taken in the last half-century, should have been almost universally used to treat COVID-19 patients as soon as those patients showed symptoms or tested positive — and even as a prophylactic to prevent or minimize the effects of the illness in the first place. If they had been, it is likely that tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of those who died of the virus would have lived.

For the record, I put my medicines where my mouth is. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine and zinc (as well as vitamin D and selenium) on a regular basis for half a year, and ivermectin for the past three months. More for the record: During this time, I have hugged hundreds of strangers at various events around the country, maskless. In addition, at home, I live with four people: my wife, two stepsons and the fiancee of one of the sons. That couple, both in their mid-20s, developed symptoms and then tested positive for COVID-19 a month ago. They were the only two members of the family not to be on hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin. And while they were ill, my wife and I practiced no social distancing, wore no masks in the house and tested negative twice (as responsible citizens, we quarantined at home for 14 days).

3. A Doctor’s View About the New mRNA Vaccines

I’ve practiced for 35 years. I am always honest with my patients, even if conversations are difficult or confrontational. I will also be honest about saying “I don’t know.” This happens when a diagnosis is not readily apparent or when there are limits to the help I can give. With the passage of time, I’ve learned that what we don’t know about medicine outweighs what we do know.

I’ve always been a proponent of older, more established vaccines. However, they are imperfect and, like all medical treatments, can have side effects. Unfortunately, in the conversation about the new COVID-19 vaccines, the tenets of honesty and a willingness to admit ignorance are being compromised.

Operation Warp Speed was remarkable, but it leaves an uncomfortable question: Is it a good thing to rush a vaccine (or medicine) to the public without the usual safeguards? Operation Warp Speed might be a great business objective or military goal, but is it great for a medical treatment? 

The pharmaceutical industry, government health authorities, and the media insist the new vaccines are safe and effective. While the initial results are promising, this is not the whole truth. Both honesty and acknowledging ignorance require answering a few questions. […]

(The article continues at American Thinker with all the elements that are important to know. Had this kind of honesty been delivered to the public in the first place, we wouldn’t have people spreading falsehoods on the other side as well. Or at least those that did, wouldn’t seem as credible as they do when the entire political/medical/media establishment is caught repeatedly lying, cheating and even stealing for an agenda that is not what the public would have ever voted for.)

    • 48:20 He “couldn’t find one child who had died in the XXth c. from [meningococcal] meningitis.”

      I am thrilled to have had the series of meningitis shots. The one ignorant statement means he is not reliable. Could still be right, but I wouldn’t rely on his research. (me= meningitis survivor=scariest thing I ever faced because of the rapid fall into sepsis, then a coma)

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/meningitis-b-is-rare-but-deadly-parents-who-lost-children-to-the-disease-wonder-why-no-one-mentioned-a-vaccine/2019/09/13/151406e0-b93c-11e9-a091-6a96e67d9cce_story.html
      There are about 20 cases of meningitis B among college students annually, says Sarah Mbaeyi, a pediatrician who studies meningococcal disease for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She says about 12 percent of meningitis B cases result in death, and another 10 to 20 percent result in significant long-term conditions, such as loss of limbs or hearing or cognitive deficits. (There were 134 total cases in 2017, according to the CDC’s latest surveillance report.) the CDC recommends it for individuals ages 16 through 23, with a preferred age of 16 through 18 years. (For those with certain health issues that places them at increased risk, the recommendation is at 10 years or older.)

    • #3: This has more reasoning behind it:
      “If the death rate from COVID-19 were much higher, it might make the risks acceptable to try an experimental vaccine. Given that the COVID-19 death rate is a little higher than a bad flu, my opinion is that younger and healthier people need a more rigorous risk/benefit analysis before taking the mRNA vaccines.”

  1. 3. Thanks for this article VT.
    As an over 65 yrs, with health issues, I have to say, I’m more concerned about getting the vaccine than I am about getting the virus.

    • Today I heard from friends and family in Israel. Those who’ve completed the two doses feel fine; others are eager for their second shot. They don’t know anyone who’s suffered extreme adverse reactions.
      (And it’s a very small, very gossipy place.)

      I’ll consider it when the next version (or the one after that) comes out. Like the flu vax, it’ll probably be an annual event. (And I get that flu shot every year.)

      Since I’m at a high risk for serious complications of the disease, I’m taking responsibility for protecting myself. Drastic limitations. Apparently, people in Sweden with a similar risk profile did the same thing, voluntarily.

  3. NPR – Fauci Awarded $1 Million Israeli Prize For ‘Speaking Truth To Power’ Amid Pandemic

    America’s top infectious disease official Dr. Anthony Fauci received a prestigious $1 million Israeli prize Monday, along with six other researchers who shared two additional $1 million prizes for their contributions to health and medicine.

    The Dan David Prize, affiliated with Tel Aviv University, said it honored Fauci for his career in public health and “speaking truth to power” during the politicized COVID-19 crisis.

    Fauci “is the consummate model of leadership and impact in public health,” the awards committee said in a statement.

    The award sets aside 10% of the prize money for academic scholarships in each winner’s field. Fauci gets to determine the nature of the scholarships.

    Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the U.S. National Institutes of Health since 1984, advising seven presidents on domestic and global health issues.

    His research into HIV helped develop treatments to enable carriers of the virus to live long lives. In 2003, he helped launch the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief under the George W. Bush administration, which the NIH credits with saving millions of lives in the developing world.

    Fauci became a household name in the U.S. after appearing in televised presidential briefings on the coronavirus. He was a trusted authority for the public on preventive measures against COVID-19, even as former President Donald Trump downplayed the virus and blocked Fauci from appearing on several television programs. Trump called Fauci part of a group of “idiots” and suggested he might fire him after the presidential election, which Trump lost.

    “As the COVID-19 pandemic unraveled, (Fauci) leveraged his considerable communication skills to address people gripped by fear and anxiety and worked relentlessly to inform individuals in the United States and elsewhere about the public health measures essential for containing the pandemic’s spread,” the awards committee said. “In addition, he has been widely praised for his courage in speaking truth to power in a highly charged political environment.”

    The Dan David Prize, established by the late Italian Israeli philanthropist Dan David, annually awards three prizes of $1 million honoring contributions to knowledge of the past, contributions to society in the present and advances for the future.

    Previous laureates include filmmakers Ethan and Joel Cohen, novelist Margaret Atwood, former Vice President Al Gore and cellist Yo Yo Ma.

    – Anthony Fauci Wins $1 Million Israeli Prize for ‘Courageously Defending Science’

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has won the $1 million Dan David Prize for “defending science” and advocating for vaccines now being administered worldwide to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Israel-based Dan David Foundation on Monday named President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser as the winner of one of three prizes. It said he had earned the recognition over a lifetime of leadership on HIV research and AIDS relief, as well as his advocacy for the vaccines against COVID-19.

    In its statement, the private foundation did not mention former President Donald Trump, who undermined Fauci’s follow-the-science approachto the pandemic. But it credited Fauci with “courageously defending science in the face of uninformed opposition during the challenging COVID crisis.”

    Fauci, 80, has served seven presidents and has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984.

    In recent interviews, Fauci has acknowledged that it was difficult at times to work for Trump, who repeatedly played down the severity of the pandemic, dismissed the need for mask-wearing and often touted unproven scientific remedies, including injecting disinfectant.

    Trump resented Fauci’s flattering press coverage and reveled in calls to “Fire Fauci!” at some of his rallies. But Fauci outlasted Trump, who lost the November election.
