President Trump has been proved right again with another shockingly successful hydroxychloroquine study, done by the Henry Ford Health System and published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. This new explosive study proves the experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have been proved wrong—again. Those experts have often said that the drug, typically used for malaria, was useless for the Chinese coronavirus.
USA Today even mocked the President declaring, “Coronavirus treatment: Dr. Donald Trump peddles snake oil and false hope.” No, the peddlers of snake oil, that includes most of the mainstream media, have been proved again to be blind, benighted bigots desperately supporting a failed political candidate, a false political philosophy, and a fake political objectivity.
The new study is additional proof that corruption at the CDC and NIH is deep and wide. That would almost always be true when piles of money in research funds, federal grants, personal gifts, royalties, and patent rights are involved. Interwoven in all this are egos, reputations, and fear of exposure. Even highly educated people lose control when they are threatened with a loss of salary, subsidies, and status. President Trump should look at the inner sanctum of the CDC and all its affiliates and fire incompetents, grafters, and opportunists. He should look at all contracts each employee has with any university, clinic, hospital, or research group. He should have each employee disclose all past agreements or gifts, salary, expenses, or benefits of any kind from any pharmaceutical company.
Dr. Tony Fauci is the face of U.S. disease control, and recent events suggest he peddles hokum using scientific jargon. As a health expert, he has as much credibility as Jerry Springer. As a reliable health spokesman, he flashed, he floundered, he flopped. And unemployed Americans have picked up the tab for his mistakes. In January, Fauci told us that the U.S. “did not have to worry” and the coronavirus was “not a major threat.” Then he said, it was “a bad flu.” On March 20, he corrected Trump on national television for saying hydroxychloroquine was a “fairly effective” treatment because “it was never done in a clinical trial.” Two weeks later the treatment was deemed the “most highly rated treatment” by more than 6,000 international doctors.
It is most interesting that when the critics disparage hydroxychloroquine, they cite studies that did not follow the protocols. If the treatment is used at the first symptoms, it has been 100% successful in treating about 500 coronavirus patients, according to Dr. Vladimir Zelenko in March. Zelenko said, “We have had ZERO deaths, ZERO hospitalizations, and ZERO intubations. In addition, I have not heard of any negative side effects other than approximately 10% of patients with temporary nausea and diarrhea.” The patients received hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days, azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days, and zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days. With no deaths. This seems simple. If you want an effective COVID-19 treatment, then follow the proven protocols. If you want to bash Trump and see more people die, do the studies, but don’t follow the proven protocols. You can still say, “we’ve done the hydroxychloroquine treatment without any success,” but don’t reveal that you did not treat patients early in their disease and didn’t use azithromycin and zinc.
After all, you may be a bigot, a hater, and a Democrat, but you aren’t stupid.
But let’s go back to Fauci. He told us on February 29 that malls, movies, and gyms were acceptable and on March 9, cruises were safe. On April 15, he suggested that sexual hookups via the internet were acceptable! Fauci and Birx used the Imperial College Model to convince Trump to close down the U.S. economy. Everyone now knows the Imperial College model was a total fraud, and the cure (closing down the economy) was worse than the disease threat. Remember, people will do almost anything when their salary, subsidies, and status are threatened. A friend of mine is a Harvard-trained lawyer who wrote to me in response to one of my recent columns. He exposed a “symbiotic relationship” between Emory University (in Atlanta) and the CDC. It seems some of the scientists were working both sides with generous salaries or grants. That has been going on for decades in many universities where professors do non-work in return for generous grants or salaries. That is similar to physicians who write (or put their names on research papers) and get them published in a medical journal for a fee. That would be in the same category as physicians who receive exotic vacations to “lecture” at annual events at vacation hot spots with accompanying fees and expenses.
The above are standard operating procedures for scientists in many professional disciplines. It is considered the way to do business; after all, one must remain friends with editors, publishers, and commercial companies and do a great deal of back-scratching. And back-scratching is far more pleasant if done on one of the Greek islands, a Black Sea resort, or a week in the Cayman Islands.
My friend reported a case where the NIH “granted liberal awards in research to Wayne State University (in Detroit) that was “bull…. research, going nowhere and pretending to go through the paces.” There are numerous examples of forged or fallacious or fuzzy research in many fields of science—so-called—but those are rarely exposed in the scientific journals.
Furthermore, Big Pharma carries a big stick in the halls of Congress, and any member who even looks kindly at an anti-vaccine lobbyist (or even a photo of Robert Kennedy, Jr.) gets whacked over the head.
Nothing must limit the sale of vaccines or suggest any hanky-panky down in Atlanta by the boys in white coats. After all, when one gets his or her doctorate and is ordained by the medical brotherhood into the inner sanctum of a federal health position, they receive medical sainthood while still alive. He or she can do no wrong, and if they do, they may be examined, then excused, and exonerated. After all, it could be dangerous to their system if a wrongdoer is punished since everyone knows where the bodies are buried.
Maybe a slap on the wrist.
So, seldom do heads roll, and the grants, generous salaries, and national reputations continue, even blossom during times of pandemic. Americans hang on every word of Fauci, Birx, Redfield, and Associates when, in my opinion, they should be making license plates.
The CDC hypes, even inflates, the number of infections and deaths by various diseases then encourages governments to purchase a considerable amount of vaccines on which the CDC owns patents. You might think they would not be so obviously mercenary and brash. However, the Natural News quoted the AP to that effect: “The Associated Press (AP) explains in a recent report how the CDC uses these and other wildly inaccurate calculations to push its own agenda, which usually involves scaring governments into buying more emergency medications and vaccines to prevent what is commonly hyped as the potential for widespread disease and death.”
Just one of many examples of shameless profiteering took place not long ago by the top honcho at the CDC, Dr. Julie Gerberding, who became Director in 2002. Forbes magazine listed her 32nd among The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women in 2007 and 24th in 2008. She made the list in 2009 but failed to make it in 2010 and the following years.
Dr. Gerberding was the Director of the CDC when the MMR vaccine fraud took place from 2002 to 2009. It seems Dr. Gerberding looked at the charges against the CDC of covering up a vaccine-autism connection relating to the MMR vaccine made by Merck Pharmaceutical. She looked behind the curtain and basically said, “Nope, nobody there.” As Hogan’s Hero Sergeant Shultz would say, “There was nothhhhhing to it.” The MMR vaccine was safe for young children.
After giving the vaccine a pass, she left the CDC in 2009 and became President in 2010 with—you won’t believe this—the maker of the MMR vaccine, Merck’s vaccine division. After leaving the CDC, she sold about half her Merck stock options for almost $10 million. She sold more Merck stock in 2016 for a total of over $16 million but retained Merck stock worth about $9 million. Inquiring minds want to know if Julie was hired at a very generous salary and benefits as a payoff for her favorable decision dealing with Merck’s MMR vaccine. That’s an example of the “famous revolving door” effect.
At Trump’s March 20 daily report of the pandemic, Dr. Fauci ridiculed the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine. Is it because he has delusions of a future “Fauci vaccine” for the Chinese coronavirus dancing in his head? Surely, he would not be so crass, cruel, and classless. President Trump was right again about hydroxychloroquine, and the experts at the CDC and NIH all have egg on their faces. The federal health system needs Trump’s attention the way an innocent baby needs attention every few hours, and I don’t mean their need for food. To jump to a different metaphor, Trump needs to clean out the stables at the CDC.
A good start will be to tell Dr. Fauci, “You’re Fired.”
