Media promptly smears it as a panel of “vaccine skeptics and promoters of unproven early treatments.”
This discussion on the special “Second Opinion” panel that Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) hosted is a perfect example of one of the root problems in the American response to the covid pandemic: The press.
Johnson organized world-renowned doctors and medical experts to offer a different perspective on the pandemic: global pandemic response, the current state of knowledge of early and hospital treatment, vaccine efficacy and safety, what went right, what went wrong, what should be done now, and what needs to be addressed long term. The panel discussion was held this Monday, and the 5-hour discussion is via the link HERE.
I strongly encourage anyone interested in the scientific challenges to the pandemic response that have been suppressed under the guise of “misinformation” to watch as much as they can, if not all, of qualified medical experts who are disturbed by the approaches developed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and the rest of the federal health bureaucracy.
Johnson’s panelists included very serious and knowledgeable professionals. For example:
- Dr. Peter McCullough, cardiologist and former vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center.
- Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor of medicine at Stanford University, a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration.
- Dr. Harvey Risch, Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health
- Dr. Paul Marik, critical care doctor at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
- Dr. Robert Wallace Malone is an American virologist and immunologist. He is the inventor of the mRNA technology utilized by the COVID-19 vaccine.
McCullough created the 4 Pillars of Pandemic Response, which are:
- Stop the Spread
- Early Home Treatment
- Last Stage Hospitalization
- Vaccination/Herd Immunity
One of the most disturbing aspects of this panel discussion is hearing about how one panelist, Dr. Ryan Cole, was hearing about how he guided an obese patient suffering from severe covid away from the emergency room to the pharmacist and an array of drugs to reduce viral replication and ease inflammation. For his efforts of trying to make the public aware of treatment options, he was hounded by the media and described as controversial.
Essentially, the federal bureaucratic pandemic response skipped Pillar 2, briefly focused on Pillar 3, and went all in and Pillar 4.
Dr. Harvey Rich reviewed all the problems and flaws associated with the studies that “proved” hydroxychloroquine was an ineffective early treatment and noted that the press failed to mention the retraction used to deem support for the treatment as “misinformation”. The media hid 10 other studies that show there is a 50% risk reduction in hospitalization and a 75% risk reduction in death when hydroxychloroquine is used in early treatment.
Upon learning of this panel, I wanted to see news reports on this panel. The only one I found described that the panel consisted of “vaccine skeptics and promoters of unproven early treatments”. The analysis included this chestnut:
Among those scheduled to speak at both events is Robert Malone, an infectious disease researcher who has claimed to be an “inventor” of mRNA vaccines and has been accused of spreading misinformation about the vaccines that got him booted off Twitter.
Also expected to speak at both events is Texas cardiologist Peter McCullough, who has asserted COVID-19 vaccines are unsafe; Aaron Kheriaty, a University of California-Irvine School of Medicine physician who was fired for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine; and Wisconsin physician Pierre Kory, who has promoted the use of ivermectin as an early treatment for COVID-19.
Dr. Pierre Kory is the former Chief of the Critical Care Service and Medical Director of the Trauma and Life Support Center at the University of Wisconsin and an expert in the use of “horse dewormer” ivermectin. He details the studies across the globe, including the success of its use in a Brazilian city and Uttar Pradesh, India (news of which has been hidden or dismissed by the press).
In a nutshell, Fauci, Big Bureaucracy, and Big Pharma have declared war on repurposed drugs. The “misinformation” weapon the press has used so effectively is likely responsible for the deaths of thousands.
There is evidence that the “misinformation” campaign is not as working as it once did. For example, New Hampshire residents may soon be able to receive ivermectin from pharmacies without first getting a prescription or approval from a doctor.
Proposed legislation titled House Bill 1022 would allow pharmacists to dispense the drug, which some believe can treat COVID-19 even though it lacks approval for such use from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), by means of standing orders.
Under the law, pharmacists would be able to “dispense ivermectin under the delegated prescriptive authority of the physician or APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurses), specify a mechanism to document screening performed and the prescription in the patient’s medical record, and include a plan for evaluating and treating adverse events,” according to the bill.
I would like to note that Johnson invited Fauci, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle P. Walensky, Dr. Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pfizer, and other bureaucrats and pharma executives to the panel. None elected to come.
