It’s the biggest medical scandal since 1850 — there are even claims the US President was treated in secret

History books will be written and some professors, academics, and bureaucrats will have no excuse. 

The Red Cross serves humanity

Which organisations can serve now?

It took two court hearings and major complaints and assertive activism to save eighty year old Judy Smentkiewicz. But how many others died because their sons or daughters didn’t see Pierre Kory on TV? Or they didn’t have the wherewithal to go to court? Or their friends trying to share the message were censored on Facebook? It shouldn’t have to be this way.

This is Judy’s story below, but so much more. Read the whole thing. It’s very well written by Michael Capuzzo. Surely, this is a story that needs an answer. Where are the Forth Estate, the Opposition, The AMA, or the publicly funded professors at our universities?

I am but a cog passing on points of view that should be part of our national conversation. Some things matter: like antivirals and closed borders.

Nick Corbishley says “I don’t know of a bigger story in the world”

Michael Capuzzo, a New York Times best-selling author , has just published an article titled “The Drug That Cracked Covid”. … But unfortunately most reporters are not interested in telling the other side of the story. Even if they were, their publishers would probably refuse to publish it.

That may explain why Capuzzo, a six-time Pulitzer-nominated journalist best known for his New York Times-bestselling nonfiction books Close to Shore and Murder Room, ended up publishing his article on ivermectin in Mountain Home, a monthly local magazine for the people of the Pennsylvania mountains and New York Finger Lakes region, of which Capuzzo’s wife is the editor.

But if you want to share the story on the Anti-social Media, perhaps avoid spelling out the I word, lest the censors strike.

These doctors are heroes.

The Drug that Cracked COVID

By Michael Capuzzo, Mountain Home

Marik was accustomed to beating the odds. The legendary professor, a 6-foot, 230-pound, balding, barrel-chested, bear of a man with a crisp native South African accent touched with the South after thirty years, is the second most published critical care doctor in the history of medicine, with more than 500 peer-reviewed papers and books, 43,000 scholarly citations of his work, and a research “H” rating higher than many Nobel Prize winners. Marik is world famous as creator of the “Marik Cocktail,” a revolutionary cocktail of cheap, safe, generic, FDA-approved drugs that dramatically reduces death rates from sepsis by 20 to 50 percent anywhere in the world—whether you’re in a hospital in Zurich or Zimbabwe, Chicago or Chengdu—down to near zero, when given soon after presentation to hospitals. Since he published what he calls the “HAT Therapy” (Hydrocortisone, Ascorbic Acid [intravenous Vitamin C] and Thiamine) in 2016 in the most prestigious peer-reviewed journal in the field, Marik has received worldwide publicity, is celebrated in James Bond Internet memes with the “Marik Cocktail” shaken, not stirred, and is seen in ICUs around the globe as a historic figure in medicine for improving care of sepsis, which last year passed cancer and heart disease as the world’s number one killer, according to Lancet. Marik, known as a quirky genius and an exceptionally kind-hearted doctor (his most published peer in the annals of medicine doesn’t see patients), has been searching for an effective treatment for COVID-19 since it began.

The deadly time is week two, paradoxically, as Covid is dying off:

They made their first major breakthrough in March 2020, by the third week of the pandemic when only 3,800 Americans had died. It was based on the idea that COVID-19 has one great weakness: the coronavirus doesn’t kill anybody. In a mechanism so diabolical Marik believes “human beings aren’t smart enough to have figured it out,” the trillions upon trillions of coronaviruses that overwhelm and sicken the host don’t kill it. But in the second week of the disease, all the coronaviruses die, and like suicide bombers flooding out of a Trojan Horse swamp the body with a “vast viral graveyard” that triggers a friendly-fire hyper-immune response that in turn unleashes monstrous multi-organ inflammation and clotting like doctors have never seen. A body dying of COVID-19 is a complex, terrifying sight. But its weakness is simple: “As pulmonary critical care doctors we know how to treat inflammation and clotting, with corticosteroids and anticoagulants,” Marik says. “It’s first-grade science.”

It was even allegedly used to help President Trump. Could it be true that this widely used Nobel Prize winning drug threatens so many bank accounts, it was done in secret:

In addition, Kory, Marik, et. al published the first comprehensive COVID-19 prevention and early treatment protocol (which they would eventually call I-MASK). It is centered around the drug Ivermectin, which President Trump used at Walter Reed hospital, unreported by the press, though it may well have saved the president’s life while he was instead touting new big pharma drugs.

*There is no documentary proof offered for this remarkable claim. It depends upon the reputation of the author (read his reasons here), and indirectly on all the doctors named as heroes. Would Trump himself have said nothing? With only weeks til an election would he have wanted to set that bonfire alight, knowing the media would want to brand him as reckless. I seem to recollect Trump recommending these doctors or their group prior to this, in which case it would seem odd for him not to have conferred with them or them with him. He’d already taken HCQ earlier showing a willingness to try “unapproved” medicines. It’s all hard to search for in this day of “filtered” search results to confirm.

  • The MATH+, protocol:  methylprednisolone, ascorbic acid, thiamine, and heparin, plus a statin, zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin, and magnesium.
  • I-MASK+ protocol, which focuses on ivermectin, but also includes vitamins C and D, quercetin, zinc, and melatonin for prophylaxis, and adding aspirin;

It’s all listed in detail at the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance website (www.flccc.net).

Many prominent doctors and scientists around the world believe that Marik, Kory, Meduri, Varon, and Iglesias deserve the Nobel Prize in medicine.

…by October Marik’s concerns were answered. The studies were well-designed university trials that showed amazing anti-COVID-19 activity at the normal doses used to treat parasites. Though small and endlessly diverse by large, Western big pharma “one-size-fits all” random control trials, the Ivermectin studies were a mosaic of hundreds of scientists and many thousands of patients in trials all over the world, all showing the same remarkable efficacy against all phases of COVID-19 no matter what dose or age or severity of the patient. “Penicillin never was randomized,” Marik says. “It just obviously worked. Ivermectin obviously works.”

The conflict of interest that almost no media outlet will report:

Remdesivir costs $3,000 a dose. It is the only anti-viral treatment for hospitalized COVID-19 patients approved by the NIH COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel, and as a result is a standard of COVID-19 care in many hospitals, even though many doctors say it doesn’t work, and the WHO recommends against it. It has been shown in studies to have no mortality benefit for COVID-19 patients. (Coincidentally, seven members of the NIH COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel acknowledge in financial disclosures that they have received research support or consultant payments from Gilead, or sit on the advisory board of the $60 billion company). As The Washington Post reported, “Remdesivir may not cure coronovirus, but it’s on track to make billions for Gilead.”

Ivermectin has even been used to save Doctors  (but not in the West):

Six prevention studies showed Ivermectin reduced the risk of getting COVID-19 by 92.5 percent, superior to many vaccines. Dr. Hector Carvallo, a professor of medicine at the University of Buenos Aires, gave 788 doctors and other health care workers in three medical centers weekly Ivermectin prophylaxis, with a control group of 407 doctors and others who didn’t get the drug. In the control group 236 people, or 58 percent, “had become ill with COVID.” Among the 788 who got Ivermectin, “no infections were recorded.”

Doctors in the West are both guilty of not doing more, but are also victims of the system. How many doctors could have been saved? How many young doctors feel they can say anything?

Kory nearly broke down pleading with the NIH to review the “immense amounts of data that shows that Ivermectin must be implemented and implemented now,” and reverse its negative recommendation of August 27, when no data was available.

“We have 100,000 patients in the hospital right now dying,” he cried out to the committee. “I’m a lung specialist, I’m an ICU specialist. I’ve cared for more dying COVID patients than anyone can imagine. They’re dying because they can’t breathe. They can’t breathe…and I watch them every day, they die….I can’t keep doing this.

Kory’s testimony, titled “I can’t do this anymore” on YouTube, went viral and reached eight million views and counting before being censored by YouTube for “misinformation;”

This was that speech:  Thank goodness for Bitchute.

This is a global battle:

In South Africa, where use of Ivermectin was criminalized, civil rights activists hung posters with Kory’s data urging revolt, and a group of physicians won permission from the Ministry of Health in Zimbabwe on January 27, 2021 to treat COVID-19 with Ivermectin; case fatalities dropped in one month from seventy a day to two a day, “and our hospitals are virtually empty,” said Dr. Jackie Stone, who was subsequently taken in for questioning for her use of a controversial drug. In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, a doctor trained in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was using Kory’s data to persuade the Ministry of Health of Ivermectin’s efficacy and was making a personal appeal to the king. “Thank you for your amazing courage and love for humanity,” he wrote. “You’re a real doctor who is living up to the Hippocratic oath. All doctors need to follow your example!!”

And in the UK too:

Belgian Red Cross

Angels are few…

In Bath, England, Dr. Tess Lawrie, a prominent independent medical researcher who evaluates the safety and efficacy of drugs for the WHO and the National Health Service to set international clinical practice guidelines, read all twenty-seven of the Ivermectin studies Kory cited. “The resulting evidence is consistent and unequivocal,” she announced, and sent a rapid meta-analysis, an epidemiolocal statistical multi-study review considered the highest form of medical evidence, to the director of the NHS, members of parliament, and a video to Prime Minister Boris Johnson with “the good news…that we now have solid evidence of an effective treatment for COVID-19…” and Ivermectin should immediately “be adopted globally and systematically for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.”

Ignored by British leaders and media, Lawrie convened the day-long streaming BIRD conference—British Ivermectin Recommendation Development—with more than sixty researchers and doctors from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland, Belgium, Argentina, South Africa, Botswana, Nigeria, Australia, and Japan. They evaluated the drug using the full “evidence-to-decision framework” that is “the gold standard tool for developing clinical practice guidelines” used by the WHO, and reached the conclusion that Ivermectin should blanket the world.

Suddenly only randomized controlled trials were good enough. It was another Gatekeeping exercise:

Everywhere the problem was the same, Kory said. The WHO, NIH, and other public health agencies were suddenly recommending only COVID-19 therapies proven by the “gold standard” of large randomized controlled trials of treatment and placebo groups, which were powerful but had several limiting flaws, including the fact that they took months to complete and cost ten to twenty million dollars that only big pharmaceutical companies could afford. They had thrown out all the other time-tested forms of clinical and scientific medical investigation still taught in all the medical schools, such as observational trials (which had eliminated widespread crib death), case histories, and anecdotes. They also restricted the use of essential off-label and generic drugs with blatant disinformation campaigns that reminded Kory of big tobacco’s efforts to hide the dangers of smoking.

For Merck (and all the other Pharmaceutical giants) the conflict of interest is obvious. It makes perfect business sense to talk down their own old out-of-patent drug. The thing that would slow that would be bad press, mass protests, government action:

Ivermectin is the generic name for Merck’s Stromectol, which they developed in 1981. Though the drug went off patent in 1996, Merck still distributes millions of doses each year in Africa for free, with a statue honoring the drug and the great humanitarian eradication effort in its headquarters and one at the WHO in Geneva. But recently Merck issued a stern warning that seemed written by marketing, Kory says, “as it had no scientific data to support the conclusion,” that Ivermectin was suddenly dangerous. Another pharmaceutical company’s CEO privately noted that “People must think Merck knows what they’re talking about because it’s their drug,” but Merck has “tremendous disincentives” to say nice things about the generic pill, as it has already spent hundreds of millions of dollars developing an oral anti-viral COVID-19 treatment, rival to Ivermectin, that may be priced at $3,000 a dose.

Brazil too:

Not just in media but in social media, Ivermectin has inspired a strange new form of Western and pharmaceutical imperialism. On January 12, 2021, the Brazilian Ministry of Health tweeted to its 1.2 million followers not to wait with COVID-19 until it’s too late but “go to a Health Unit and request early treatment,” only to have Twitter take down the official public health pronouncement of the sovereign fifth largest nation in the world for “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information.” (Early treatment is code for Ivermectin.)

Facebook, Twitter and all of the Pharmaceutical Giants are telegraphing exactly how much they care about their customers.

Picking the right hospital or doctor is a matter of life and death, and one wife even hired a helicopter to rescue her dying husband from the wrong hospital:

Dr. Manny Espinoza was dying of COVID-19 in his Texas hospital when his wife, Dr. Erica Espinoza, asked the doctors to try Ivermectin as a last resort, and was refused. Erica hired a life-flight helicopter to take Manny to the Houston hospital of FLCCC co-founder Joseph Varon for the cheap little pill that in four days had her husband sitting up smiling and telling their children about the “miracle” that saved his life. “We see this every day,” Dr. Varon says. “They say it’s a miracle, I say it’s the science, but it’s the truth.”

For what it’s worth, I was impressed with Paul Marik’s revolutionary ICU treatment which used cheap vitamins (C and B1) with a steroid — long before Covid arrived and seemingly has such an excellent rate of success.

More information:

  • See also, The Story of The Cover Story, where Capuzzo explains why he wrote this article.
  • MEDPAGE today discusses the drawbacks of some of the Ivermectin trials. But why haven’t there been larger better studies? They also comment that Paul Marik was vaccinated in January and does not see Ivermectin as a threat to that, though nor does he see vaccinations being the solution on their own. He just wants the politics out of medicine.

      Scissor, and Bernard P below: a good question, and one I wondered too. In the end, I decided to rely on the reputations of the professors of medicine like Kory and Marik and the journalist Capuzzo — trusting that Capuzzo is really speaking for them. I have followed Marik for a long time. These men are all taking a risk in writing in speaking about it, and I decided that was enough.

      But I’ve added a note to the post and the words “claimed” in a couple of spots. That’s a better reflection of the situation. Thanks for your prodding.

      Added to the post”:

      Where is the evidence that Ivermectin doesn’t work in treating COVID19?

      What evidence is there that Ivermectin does any harm?

      Why was Ivermectin blackballed?

      Time for me to repeat: The greatest lurk in business is to persuade a government to 1. Mandate the use of your product, or 2. Prohibit the use of your competitor’s product.

      This is a common factor in regulation. To what extent is it at play in the treatment of COVID19?

      It is a major systemic problem that most of the research is undertaken/funded and directed by the product suppliers.

      We should demand that our government immediately seek an answer to these questions. And the question to our regulators: Have you at any time been lobbied by the suppliers of Remdesivir?

        “Why was Ivermectin blackballed?”

        I don’t know if Ivermectin works or not(also HCQ plus zinc) but if they do there could have been no Emergency Use Authorisation(EUA) of the “vaccine”(in quotes because most are not vaccines). It was therefore imperative that effective treatments not be available.

        In case anyone missed it here is academic doctor Dr. Peter McCullough Interviewed on 5/19/2021

        https://vimeo.com/553518199

        In my opinion he is much too gentle on the criminal fraudsters such as The Lancet. I suppose he has to be like this because he is an academic. Non-academics need to call the criminals what they are, in the Covid crime against humanity, just as non-scientists such as I am need to point out that Flannery is a dullard, because scientists can’t.

        Apologies for the low quality of this comment.

    Even in the original article, it is said that President Trump was treated with Ivermectin, but there is no reference that I can check. We remember that when he got out of the hospital, he credited Regeneron for his cure.

    Trump being Trump, why would he have willingly joined a conspiracy of silence against Ivermectin? It seems promoting Ivermectin could have helped his Covid-management image during the election campaign. Something seems to be missing.

    Of course, it would not have helped him with the subsequent coup d’État.

    70

    • #

      Bernard, agreed, see my reply in #6. It does all seem odd. During those last weeks of the election campaign by the time Trump recovered, I think we also had the suppression of the Hunter Biden story running full tilt, or about to be launched. They wouldn’t want to draw oxygen out of that tale.

      During 2020 Trump must have wanted to sack Fauci several times, but the media made him out to be a star and he was hallowed and popular. Even though Trump publicly and openly took HCQ earlier on, was the battle for Ivermectin just a bridge too far at that point? Was Trump protecting the team at Walter Reed?

      Or is there the awful undertone of a medicine Trump could gain access too, but that so many Americans could not? If Trump had taken Ivermectin and credited it publicly, surely there would have been an absolute storm across the country with any and every Trump supporter in hospital wanted to get supplies?

      Given how much evidence there is supporting Ivermectin use, it would seem very silly or clumsy of Capuzzo or any of the Frontline doctors to make a claim about Trump that wasn’t true. Why add something that could be easily refuted to cloud up their high risk position as is?

      Most likely, and we may never know, is that Trump may have recovered with or without Ivermectin. And if he did take it, along with other treatments, it might be impossible to say which one was the key.

        HCQ hasn’t been linked to reduced infection with wu-flu but rather a reduced duration and mortality if you were taking it so perhaps Trumps pre-infection routine did play a part in this (most of this is just that weak pseudo-science epidemiology, and I do agree with WHO on this but they changed their tune at just the ‘right’ time rather than practicing any level of ‘rigor’ from the start).

        Ivermectin and Vit D have plenty of ammo under the belt and perhaps short term use of statins may reduce inflammation as a benefit rather than the long term negative associations that list of drugs has such as a large increase in association of mental degenerative disorders in users of statins over those who do not take them etc.

        Zinc and Vit C, despite the hype I don’t believe they demonstrated any real benefit (at least in the west where red meat is available to most people for zinc as an example).

        Observation and even epidemiology can help form the basis of further testing such as in the case of ventolin being shown to have an active ingredient that help the patient recover from wu-flu and reduce complication rates markedly…. https://www.qut.edu.au/news?id=173372

        All the effectively shown treatments have known side effects (or pretty much none in the case of vit d injections) that are easily managed and are cheap. Governments lock and step refuse to use them and allow patients to die to strengthen their case for untested drugs that set to make a small group lots of money.

        Some of the front line Doctors do make off the cuff remarks, sometimes just jokingly, forgetting perhaps how scrutinised & even twisted their every remark will become as they pose more of a threat.

        They enjoy a very relaxed atmosphere in their weekly meetings each Wednesday, yet these are wide open to anyone on Zoom.

        They’re still discovering about disinformation campaigns and perhaps arent as guarded in their remarks as some of their counterparts like eg. Dr. John Campbell and Dr. Tess Lawrie. They’re doing an amazing job despite that.

        Very True. But it seems to be wishful thinking. The TGA is not budging one bit.

        This is from the Covid Medical Network Website:

        “The Covid Medical Network has received a formal “cease and desist” letter from the TGA to take down the “Early Treatments” section from our website, as they have construed the information to be a form of advertising. We are currently consulting with our lawyers and the TGA regarding how best to provide the information in a manner that would not reasonably be construed as advertising the medications associated with the safe and effective treatment of early Covid illness.”

      You would have to very carefully check the contents in case there might be toxicity issues, but most livestock drenches contain ivemectin. Horse drenches in particular are quite concentrated doses.

      I am not advocating humans taking animal medicines. ( and if you’ve ever seen a horses’ look of utter revulsion on its face when its copped an ivemectin drench you will know why :-). )

      Dont forget that covid appears to be the manufactured driver, to drive people to the blood clot mRNA devices.

    Isn’t there some redress that can be taken by COVID victims that holds these public servants and governments accountable. I don’t think it’s the profit motive it feels more sinister than that. It really is a right and left issue. The conservatives have zero trust in the public servants who advise governments on this issue whilst the left treat the left media as gospel.What I find crazy is that they claim not only is it ineffective but it’s actually dangerous enough to be banned. I liken it to chicken soup . Even if it doesn’t help it can’t hurt. When the dust settles I believe there should be tribunals to try those that have prevented the positive information about Ivermectin from being heard. Those that censor information by wrongly and without any basis classifying it as misinformation and people die, should be held responsible . They are guilty of having let people die.
    This is a scandal that will rank in terms of its heinous consequences as bad as some of the worlds most infamous war crimes.

      I’m very much in agreement with you, especially regarding your feeling that something sinister is in play.

      The drive now to vaccinate any and all, even down to children is insane given that: 1. the immune systems in children in nearly all cases easily defeat the virus; and 2. they hardly transmit the virus at all when they are infected.

        Ive spent the last 20 years watching and researching what the globalists have been doing.

        Their ultimate aim, it appears, is culling a huge proportion of “useless eaters” from the planet, by whatever means necessary.

        The globalists appear to adhere to a pagan Satanist religion of awful cruelty, that places the planet ( thier mythical “Gaia” goddess ). The most visible group currently is the CCP.

        The information I have gleaned over the years leads me to believe this current vaccine may slowly cripple people over the next 2 years, but the next “pandemic” will produce a vaccine with a 48 hour kill time…as in 100% death rate within 48 hours.

        We are now in the final training run to get people primed. A the finer details are now known, peoples tolerances have been mapped, huge amounts of DNA taken ( the “get tested” frenzy) to fine tune the coming killer device.

        The next designer bug they release will be worse, much worse, but people wont realize its not the bug thats the cause. People will be frantic fir the cure…and as more people drop dead in 48 window, more people will rush for the “cure”…..

        Job done.

        My conscience us clear now. I have no bloodguilt on my head, you now know.

        Be smart, stay away from any vaccine offered, it may be the smartest thing you ever do.

        May God protect us all.

      Isn’t there some redress that can be taken by COVID victims that holds these public servants and governments accountable.

      The problem is the redress industry on so many levels.

      The Pharmaceutical Industry is under pressure not just from the cost of developing therapy. The prime cost is at every level and it is the cost of protecting yourself from lawyers.

      Same for the Medical Professionals. They would use the treatment if they were able to afford to defend themselves without destroying everything around them.

      If you have been in hospital you will know that your loved one will be left to die, while the lovely Doctors and Nurses are busy negotiating the recording system and the bureaucrats are attempting to staff the hospital in the face of ridiculous industrial laws and regulations.

      This health crisis and many other failures in our Democracies will only be cured by reducing the power of the litigation industry. What we have is a group of Arts Law graduates in the Government lining the pockets of their mates in Private Practice in exchange for increased power and privilege.

      That was the threat of Trump, he was removing those powers, and influencing others to dump regulation.

      This is a great post Jo and rings true to me on so many levels.

      I watched world class Physicians recommend and expensive drug therapy to my daughter without evidence. She recovered following the normal history for that disease without those drugs.

      I saved my own Father from death from the effects of Influenza B in a brand new Hospital. He was dying without food, in isolation and covered in faeces and vomit while the nurses sat filling out forms in a room full of terminals.

      To fix the health system and everything else we need to fix the regulations and how they are enforced. There are too many people who contribute nothing to the good making way to much money.

      They are lovely caring people but the system beats them.
      Thank God it has not beaten you.

      @Zig – it’s a left a right thing

      Not so. Many of the long time hesitant vacc crowd are the same as the group worried about GMO’s. In other words, greens, doctors wives, vegans etc, so there are people with concerns on both sides of the spectrum. That may turn out to be very useful. Wouldn’t it be good for a change to connect across normal political lines?

      The Frontline doctors alliance are trying not to be politically aligned, and thats wise. Who else could connect left and right concerns?

      On the other hand, I think some of the pro vacc motivation is just people who think all vaccines work like the Tetnus / Small pox type and 1/ that solves their fear of catching covid or 2/ that solves their worries about their business. “Just get everyone vacced and life will be normal.” If only it were that simple.

      These are people who don’t know the untold stories of all the other diseases we tried to make vaccines for and failed.

      So some of the pro-vacc crowd are ill-informed or using the concept as a form of therapy to soothe anxiety of some sort. Others are a vested interest talking. Still others are mistakenly politically motivated and oppose or support based on political lines.

      I’m neither pro nor anti vaccine in a blanket way, some vaccines are good. But we just don’t have the data, and I’m fed up with being given boring pro-vacc ads on the news every single night. I know that if there were grave concerns about the vaccines, the ABC and SBS or Fauci, are never going to admit as such.

      And that’s a big problem. The Trust in all our institutions has largely evaporated.

    I’ve been building up a compendium on the coronavirus, and as it has grown has grown, several medications have emerged as able to deal with this disease: Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. And yes! Here in Australia their use has been – I understand – criminalised by bureaucratic/political stupidity.

    After all: Donald Trump suggested Hydroxycholoroquine, so that was enough for the political Left to condemn it! (A cheap, well-tested, and readily available treatment. But wait! There was no big money in it ….)

    This COVID-19 situation has evolved to resemble that other grand topic of the day: ‘Climate change’! Both would seem to be manipulated by related forces using two essential tools: FEAR + IGNORANCE = STUPIDITY.

    And, here in Australia, there has been one very straight politician who has been outspoken on this subject: Craig Kelly M.P. – who certainly deserves an accolade!

    Here’s what I’ve assembled: http://www.galileomovement.com.au/media/ACOVID19Overview2.pdf. I’ll certainly add this new revelation into it – thanks to Jo’s Blog!

          Australia does not have an equivalent, though Brendon Murphy our Chief Medical Officer was worse than useless in Feb last year, and responsible for telling us to follow the WHO advice and keep our borders open til too late. He was the reason the whole nation had to do lockdowns in April 2020. After letting the nation down he was promoted to the Secretary of the Department of Health in July 2020.

          The best Chief medical officer in the world was Prof Michael Baker in NZ. The only guy — as far as I know — who got it right. Though some state advisors here in WA and (oddly) I think in Victoria were giving more useful advice early last year.

    I have owned horses for many years and frequently have used ivermectin paste. I currently have 2 tubes of DuraMectin (sourced from Canada, 1.87%). The price was likely about $6, but the packages are not marked. I’ve checked during the past year and such things (I think, 3 different brands) have been on the shelf at our local ranch supply & feed store.).

    The packages all say not intended for humans, but not why.
    The thing is that the tube contains a supply that will treat a 1,250 horse and the gradations are marked in 250 pound increments, with lesser notches for each 50 pounds. It would be impossible to administer a precise dose from this – there are videos on the web of folks treating a horse. Such are easy to find.

    I have not investigated whether human doses are available.

    By this time last year I had upped my Vitamin D3 level, a multi-V&M pill, red onions, potatoes, and beef.
    Onions → quercetin
    Potatoes → Zinc
    Beef → Iron

    Wine → because the world is crazy

    Best to all – John

      Beef and lamb are a great source of zinc and vitamin B12, but many people don’t know what these nutrients are and why they are important.

      not sure if anti-nutrients in those vege will cancel out any benefits. Testing from the 70s showed that eating plants interfered with our ability to absorb certain nutrients and minerals.

      An example would be one where they took mussels the most dense amount of elemental zinc (what the body needs not just any old zinc) and then combined it with various fairly common foods to see how uptake was.

      The control was 100g of mussels by themselves and as expected the readings were very high for zinc in the blood taken at various times during the digestion of the food. Next they combined it with 100g of black beans and measured a roughly 50% reduction in zinc in the blood over the same period while lastly that ate the mussels with 100g of corn tortillas resulting in pretty much 0 change to zinc in the blood or no detectable zinc in the blood as a result of the recent ingestion of the mussels.

      So two issues, is this the mineral your body can actually use? and will your body actually get any of it? The same can be said for supplements. Magnesium tablets may have lots of magnesium but versions like magnesium oxide provide very little benefit to the body but makes up most of the supplement in most cases.

      Societies that historically did eat plants regularly soaked, sprouted, cooked multiple times, fermented or a combination of many of these together to limit the negative effects of these foods.

      The article by Marik et al. was peer-reviewed and accepted by specialists in meta-analysis and Covid-19. They were peer reviewers for an entire special issue of the journal on Covid-19. The editor (not “publisher,” AFAIK) who subsequently overruled them was not expert in either subject, and his overruling caused the editors to resign in protest and the special issue to be canceled.

      The editor acted as he did after being contacted by an unnamed outsider who employed the same reasoning, apparently, as the FDA and other captious critics in nitpicking the studies in the meta-analysis. For instance, all studies in which the experimenters were aware of which patients were in which arm were rejected as being likely tainted by bias in favor of the treatment arm. But this rejection is only justified in the (normal) case in which the experimenters are contractors for a drug company that has a vested interest in the treatment arm’s being successful. Front-line doctors and hospitals have no such vested interest in a drug they report favorably on, so imputing bias to them is itself biased.

      “the Indian Bar Association serves legal notice upon Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist, WHO”
      .

      https://takshakpost.com/2021/05/28/indian-bar-association-serves-legal-notice-upon-dr-soumya-swaminathan-the-chief-scientist-who/


      A legal notice is served by Indian Bar Association (IBA) upon Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist at the World Health Organisation (WHO) on May 25, 2021 for her act of spreading disinformation and misguiding the people of India, in order to fulfil her agenda.

      The notice is based on the research and clinical trials carried out by ‘Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance’ (FLCCC) and the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) Panel, who have presented enormous data that strengthen the case for recommendation of Ivermectin in prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

      Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has ignored these studies/reports and has deliberately suppressed the data regarding effectiveness of the drug Ivermectin, with an intent to dissuade the people of India from using Ivermectin.

      However, the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi have refused to accept her stand and have retained the recommendation for Ivermectin under ‘May Do’ category, for patients with mild symptoms and those in home isolation, as stated in ‘The National Guidelines for COVID-19 management’ last updated on May 17, 2021.

      In order to stop Dr. Soumya Swaminathan from causing further damage to the life of citizens of this country, IBA has decided to initiate legal action against her and as part of the process, a legal notice has been served upon her.

      IBA has observed that the content of several web links to news articles/reports included in the notice served upon Dr. Soumya Swaminathan on May 25, 2021, which was visible before issuing the notice, has either been removed or deleted now.

      IBA had anticipated this and therefore, we have downloaded soft copies of these news articles before issuing the legal notice. It is ludicrous on part of the forces resorting to such cowardly acts, for they do not know that they are providing very strong evidence of their desperate attempt at blocking information/news regarding Ivermectin.”

    There is no conspiracy here. This is a very clear case of fraud and mass murder against humanity for financial gain. Thomas Borody belled the cat on Ivermectin very early on and as a Nobel prize winning doctor he had the impeccable credentials to remove any doubt that this treatment had significant merit. What happened next was very evil, with big Pharma seeing the windfall of a lifetime, but only if the already available cheap and effective treatments were removed. Big tech working with big pharma and with big governments all across the globe to ban the virtually free treatments not covered by their patents, along with the cancelling of all who speak out. Surely there is a money trail here that stretches across the 4 corners of the globe?. Those that blocked these treatments need to be held to account, even if it takes a lifetime. And to see that we have only one politician in Craig Kelly that was not part of this scam and was prepared to speak out is disappointing beyond belief.

    Indian Bar Association Serves Legal Notice Upon Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist, WHO

    Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist at the World Health Organisation (WHO), was apparently served a legal notice by Indian Bar Association (IBA) on May 25, 2021, for her alleged act of spreading disinformation and thus misleading the people of India, in order to fulfill her own agenda, so the plaintiff’s action declares. It is reported that Dr. Soumya Swaminathan deliberately ignored and suppressed the FLCCC and BIRD Panel’s data regarding the effectiveness of the drug Ivermectin, with an intent to dissuade the people of India from using Ivermectin. Moreover, the nation of India has included ivermectin in their national protocol and, as TrialSite recently reported, in states where the treatment is in wide use an unprecedented reduction of cases is now reported. Of course, it’s difficult to prove a direct correlation without a designed study but the turnaround in cases in Uttar Pradesh, one of the states with a population-wide ivermectin regimen, is indeed striking.

    Unprecedented Pandemic Turnaround in Uttar Pradesh with Dramatic Decline in Cases

    The health authorities for the state of Uttar Pradesh are easing up on COVID-19-based restrictions, at least in zones of the state where SARS-CoV-2 infections now fall below 600 cases. Just how big of a turnaround is the situation there? Well, for much of February and March of 2021, the average number of cases ranged from 100 to 350 in the most populated state of India with over 220 million people (if Uttar Pradesh was a nation, it would be sixth in the world, beating Brazil). That situation changed with the second pandemic wave here, which as TrialSite’s analysis suggests, started with a potent mutant variant in combination with migrant labor’s fear of imminent urban lockdowns, triggering migration and hence rapid viral spread. So by March 19, the state had 380 cases and the numbers of newly infected cases skyrocketed to 37,944 cases on April 24 alone, just over a month later. The state was already offering ivermectin as part of a population-wide regimen but the health authorities there doubled down their efforts as India’s national COVID-19 guidelines introduced ivermectin just days before. What has happened since is nothing short of amazing, but unfortunately attracts little media attention outside of India. Just as fast as new cases materialized so has the decline thanks in part to a coordinated public health strategy that includes proactive testing, home visits, and medication kits that include ivermectin. As of May 29, the number of estimated new cases declined to 2,014 representing perhaps the steepest decline of new cases, and hence the fastest positive turnaround of any nation, anywhere, but the curve looks similar to what occurred in Zimbabwe and other places that instituted a population health scheme involving home care and therapy such as ivermectin. Now thanks to this dramatic turnaround, authorities here can ease up pandemic restrictions in zones with under 600 new cases recorded daily.

    Never before in history have the Left loved Big Pharma as they do now.

    And never before have conservatives and those on the rational side of science been so opposed to Big Pharma (with respect to their C-19 treatments).

    This is probably the first time in history where alternate science-based treatments (or before the “vax”, the ONLY treatment) have been specifically outlawed.

    Millions have died because of the refusal to allow known harmless and long-used treatments such as HCQ and Ivermectin to be used according to appropriate protocols, even when no alternative was available.

    The State as represented by the Left should not interfere with the sacred doctor-patient relationship and in doing so many people have died. Murdered would not be too strong a term. Relatives of patients who have died due to the refusal to allow harmless HCQ or Ivermectin should sue. Even if they were ineffective, they are still harmless and should have been given long ago.

    The real question to get to the bottom of is the true motivation of why the Left are doing this. Part of it was because President Trump’s experts said HCQ was promising and should be at least allowed to be tested, but now President Trump has been defrauded out of office, and the Left still does not allow other treatments to be tested, there must be more to it.

    And remember how the Left viciously attacked President Trump because of his claim (from his experts) that the Wu Flu originated in a lab and was genetically manipulated? Well, now, Leftists agree with that and are quietly removing their past Tweets and comments that knocked him. President Trump was proven correct, yet again. Even Biden’s handlers that tell President Imposter Biden what to say now agree with President Trump’s claim of the origin of the virus. He will be proven correct about HCQ as well.

    Could it be possible that the government feeds off the media as the trusted source initially? Then goes with the story to the point where it is not possible to paddle back? God forbid for media to back track on their story.
    If to save face, both media and governments. Next big headline should read “A breakthrough in treatment and prevention for the Covid virus found in a cheap drug”.

    In my view the health officials in Victoria tend to cling to media more so. Evidence of this is in the narrative. Cases and deaths, if not from Melbourne, then from other parts of the world. As long as the media is running the narrative, officials are reaffirming the same message, then it must be true. Rather lazy and unaccountable.

    It could be that the health officials are not qualified for such position in Victoria which is obviously vastly different to the rest of the country in ways of handling of the outbreaks and quarantine.

    But none ever talk about what treatments are given to people who have recovered. They never talk about basic immune system boost as a preventative measure. I have not heard one journalist ask such question. From the very start the narrative of a vaccine was pushed forward.

    Also two third of the doctors are show ponies including specialist in high positions within the hospitals and universities. It is all about the numbers to them.

      if they don’t know it works then it isn’t an issue. A patients arrives expecting the standard of care so given an experimental treatment might be the more unethical unless you are fairly sure there will be no serious negative outcomes as we have seen from the invermectin, vit d and ventolin RCTs.

      The researchers felt so guilty about how effective the ventolin trial was going that ended up stopping the control arm and given them the same dose and the intervention as well.

    Its Quite Clear, Ivermectin is Just for Parasites

    To:  Katrina Grace Kelly, Christopher Dore-Editor in Chief, Michelle Gunn-Editor, Associate Professor Julian Elliot

    re: “Its Quite Clear: Ivermectin is Just for Parasites”.by Katrina Grace Kelly,in Enquirer, Weekend Australian, Feb 27-28, 2021,  page 19
    Dear Katrina and Editors.
    I found that re reading this article was just as painful the second time as on my first encounter.  If this piece is a reflection of the standard of journalism expected in The Australian, standards must have slipped.
    it is not just that the article is a malicious hit piece against Craig Kelly.  The worst of it is that there is no attempt at all to examine the evidence in favour of using Ivermectin as an antiviral drug.
    The only source Katrina used was Associate Professor Julian Elliot of the National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce.  It is clear from his statements that Professor Elliot does not endorse the clinical use of Ivermectin for Covid.  None the less he does not dismiss it entirely.
    The least that Katrina Kelly could have done was contact Craig Kelly himself and ask him why he has tried to get a parliamentary debate about Ivermectin.  Craig Kelly did not make this up all by himself.  He has been informed in part by the views of a  respectable and significant group of doctors represented by the Covid Medical Network. 
    A brief check with them would have provided a lengthy list of references in favour of the use of ivermectin as a treatment in the early stages of Covid.
    I don’t think that the readers of the Australian, nor the Australian public at large have been well served by this article.
    The Australian has acted as the Pravda of an Australian Government Agency.

    This is what is stated in the TGA document “TGA Provisionally approves Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine”

    “COMIRNATY has been shown to prevent COVID-19 however it is not yet known whether it prevents transmission or asymptomatic disease”

    The vaccine rollout in Australia to those under the age of 65 is based on a false premise that these so-called ‘vaccines” do prevent infection and do prevent transmission to others.

    Health people under the age of 65 are at greater risk of the seasonal flu than COVID-19.

    The H1N1 influenza virus that caused the 1918 ‘Spanish Flu’ pandemic is still with us although in a weaker form and is one of the viruses that cause the seasonal flu.

      When you hear a so called “expert”talk about the efficacy of the vaccines, they usually parrot the following. ” vaccines will reduce the likelihood of you getting sick from COVID and going to hospital”. Notice how they roll the two claims together. Whereas we know people in OS countries are still contracting COVID, still going to hospital even after having 2 jabs. Also the claim of efficacy of vaccines has no comparison officially. Imagine if a trial was run (observational or RCT- doesn’t matter) where vaccines were compared to IVM. HCQ protocols with Zn, VIt D , antibiotics etc. My bet would be there would be little difference b/w the 2. Probably IVM would be equivalent to the best vaccine with virtually no side effects.

        A bit of reading for your convalescence.

        or the ‘Bedtime Story’ from John Cullen

        John is currently looking through his sunglasses at the data and it appears he sees SarsCOV2 having exhausted its ‘susceptibles’ and with the help of new reporting requirements from the CDC is falling behind another influenza pandemic in the reported infection rates.

        You may have backed the wrong horse with that injection, though after a terrible few days an injected Nurse participating in the ‘trial’ said her fellow guinea pigs have noticed a reduction in COPD symptoms if they had a history of those breathing difficulties.

        Every cloud has a silver lining?

                There is an entire civilization ‘ready to go‘.

                Solzhenitsyn captures the psychology that muzzles onlookers and even detainees during the early stages of mass arrests:

                The majority sit quietly and dare to hope.… At what exact point, then, should one resist? When one’s belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one’s home? An arrest consists of a series of incidental irrelevancies, of a multitude of things that do not matter, and there seems no point in arguing about any one of them individually—especially at a time when the thoughts of the person arrested are wrapped tightly about the big question: ‘What for?’—and yet all these incidental irrelevancies taken together implacably constitute the arrest.

    As an ag chemical specialist I was astounded last year, via this blog (thanks Jo), that Ivermectin had anti-viral properties and that it indeed had very good efficacy vs COVID. Not only that, but some countries were already using it. Then the the real surprise- Ivermectin had approval for use in humans in Australia for various illnesses. Right there was a practical pathway for Australia to emerge from its COVID slumber while we waited for some safe, efficacious vaccines. 800 mostly old people died in Victoria last year during that surge. A significant number of them could likely have been saved with early treatment of IVM, Zinc, Vitamin D and antibiotics. Some of those Frontline Doctors in the US have stated that treating COVID is “easy”- their words. You break COVID infection down into various stages and depending on patient requirements administer early anti virals, steroids etc etc. Most of our medicos in hospitals seem to be still focused on ventilator beds – which is usually the worst outcome.

    Jo – would it be possible for someone to analyse India’s stats by state, against each state’s Ivermectin use or non-use? I note that India’s coronavirus peak death rate at 4k per day is the same as the USA’s, IOW about a third of the rate per capita. That peak came after the reported start of Ivermectin usage. Maybe the stats can show whether or not Ivermectin was or could have been a factor?

      I’ve gone looking to see if there’s anything on this, and came up with
      https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/ivermectin-crushes-delhi-cases/article_31f3afcc-b7fa-11eb-9585-0f6a290ee105.html

      It unfortunately doesn’t have any easy-to-see graphs, but it does say:

      “Just three weeks after adding Ivermectin, Delhi now leads India out of the deadly second surge of the COVID pandemic. Cases that had peaked at 28,395 on April 20 plummeted nearly 80% to just 6,430 on May 15. Deaths peaked May 4, and now they are also down 25%.
      [..] The tragic story in all this is that the Indian state of Tamil Nadu installed a new leader on May 7, 2021. He suddenly reversed their state’s decision to adopt Ivermectin.
      [..] Tamil Nadu cases have continued to rise from April 20 to May 15. During the same time, Delhi’s cases eased 78% while Tamil Nadu’s cases tripled.”

      The article also says, of Peru: “Before taking power, the COVID deaths had dropped 14 fold to almost nothing with Ivermectin use. However after Sagasti was elected, Ivermectin was stopped, and deaths roared back at 13 fold.”

      Can anyone here find independent confirmation of any of the above statements?

      A comment in the above-mentioned Desert Review page says:
      “the numbers in those areas which employ Ivermectin:

      Delhi: Down 94% [1,649 was 28,395]

      Uttar Pradesh Down 88% [4,715 was 37,944]

      Mexico Down 94% [1,274 was 22,339]

      Slovakia Down 97% [116 was 3,547]

      Czech Republic Down 98% [335 was 16,816]”

      (I don’t know whether these numbers are cases or deaths, and I don’t know which dates they refer to. They look like cases?)

      Eddie (comment #44) thanks for the link. Like all the others, including the numbers I have just cited in this comment, they read well but they lack the detail needed to establish or demolish the Ivermectin case. I believe that we need charts which show beyond doubt that start date and usage of Ivermectin is or is not connected to a fall in cases and deaths. It has to be quite comprehensive data with Ivermectin and non-Ivermectin places analysed, because the coronavirus stats happily form sharp peaks without assistance.

    ‘This article is about the “8th Day Therapy” concept developed by Dr Shankara Chetty from South Africa, who has treated some 4,000 COVID-19 patients and has studied at the same time the pathogenesis of the disease and fine-tuned his treatments.’
    ‘When it comes to outpatient treatment for COVID-19, the bulk of the attention has been given to date to the viral phase of the disease, and to treatment within say 3 days of the first symptoms. Many of the best known early treatment protocols combine drugs and supplements with the goal of reducing viral replication and curbing the progression of the disease.’
    ‘On the other hand, much less attention has been given to how to best treat the inflammatory phase of the disease.’
    ‘Here, what Dr Chetty indicates is that there is a second and maybe even more important window for implementing early treatment, which is not mutually exclusive from the first window. It’s to aggressively begin treatment on the eighth day of the disease, with corticosteroids and anti-histamines, if the patient has not fully recovered yet from the disease.’

    also go to the times of India and look at their covid graphs for Delhi and Mumbai – they are down 80-90%, and this variation was going to decimate India. In the countryside the numbers are still up there, but it seems where there is available medicine, something very strange has happened.

      Campbell has his issues as the slow move away in the youtube comments indicate. He does supply counter arguments and then underweights their importance.

      He was the person who first showed me the vit D study from spain that pretty much proved we didn’t need ‘vaccines’ yet with all the data he puts out there on vit D and other treatments he is firmly in the everyone must be vaccinated camp. He also introduced me to a study done on double blind RCT of children who received flu vaccinations back in 2009 where some received the standard flu vax and others received saline solution (often vaccine companies give everything but the actual dead viral particles and claim no difference in negative outcomes which is very deceptive). One outcome from this RCT was a 440% associated increase in non-flu pneumonia in those who received the standard vaccine over the placebo.

      So we can see that even from a standard well accepted vaccination that has had various rigorous testing done on it that there are various associated outcomes to vaccination which are quite negative in outcome. Perhaps, as have been suggested by other doctors who I do respect, that perhaps metabolic syndrome is a good indicator of association with poor flu outcomes especially people who are insulin resistant for which metabolically unhealthy people are generally. We also see metabolically unhealthy people tend towards the lowest vit D status, this is even more consistent when we look at why certain ‘minorities’ suffer at the hands of these infections. They have higher rates of metabolic disease and lower vit D levels….

      Meanwhile the USDA doubled-down on its disgusting food pyramid proclaimations starting from the early 80s, last year by endorsing keeping breads, fruits etc in high consumption with essentially no high level scientific studies supporting this and they deleted all testimony from low carb groups and then came out claiming there hasn’t been much new science added since the 2015 review.

      Brian, your doc would be aware of contraindications. I can’t give medical advice. Drugs can and do interact with each other. Eg Both HCQ and Ivermectin may prolong QT Intervals. (A heart timing pattern). It might be a bad idea to use either for some people and even worse to use both if you are susceptible. And it’s possibly you are already on medications that do that. (see https://www.cpsbc.ca/files/pdf/Methadone-Drugs-QT-Interval-Prolongation.pdf)

      Doctors are familiar with known risks with both drugs since they have been prescribed billions of times.

        I have watched the Pharmacists. They are currently being deluged with e-scripts, faxed scripts, paper scripts, emailed discharges and a myriad of displaced people escaping lock downs, isolated from loved ones and whose businesses and jobs have been destroyed.
        In contrast, the doctors, like the Public servants, are often working from remote locations/homes and these patients are turning up in Pharmacies without any visual diagnosis.

        To top it all off the power system and communications carriers are in a state of decay.

        It is a disaster and they risk de-registration if discussing the FDA & TGA unapproved Experimental Gene Therapy.

        It is a mess! So enjoy the managed decline. The independent Pharmacist was the final remnant of our free society and they are about to be replaced by an Amazon hole in the wall dispensary robot.
        Remember to cover your eyes when the machine dispenses the cream for your rash and always use a home remedy for suppositories.

    There’s been enough time to do more thorough research with RCT’s with larger samples. Why settle for lower quality more than a year later? Other treatments were found & promoted to manage cytokine storms and steroids. Patient cases vary greatly so 1 treatment protocol doesn’t fit all.

    I’m not saying Ivermectin is bad but it’s not a simple answer. Health & science are not simple. YMMV.

    Manitoba Premier Pallister totally ignores a question as to why Ivermecton is not used for early treatment. All across Canada treatment with Ivermecton and others like HCQ are being denied. This is criminal behavior and these “leaders” and Chief Medical Officers across the country need to resign and be [snip “held to account”. Due process and all – Jo]. I also include Justin Trudeau and his Cabinet.

    “There are but two ways of forming an opinion in science. One is the scientific method; the other, the scholastic. One can judge from experiment, or one can blindly accept authority. To the scientific mind, experimental proof is all important, and theory merely a convenience in description, to be junked when it no longer fits. To the academic mind, authority is everything and facts are junked when they do not fit theory laid down by authority” – Robert A. Heinlein in the short story Life-Line.”

    Can’t really see why you would favour Haig so much against Jack Daniels; they aren’t even direct competitors. Haig is Scotch Whisky and Jack(Daniels) is Bourbon. I don’t think that a Haig drinker would ever think of touching Jack.

    The ability to predict is the best objective measure of scientific and technical competence.
    Climate doomsters have a perfect NEGATIVE predictive track record – every very-scary climate prediction, of the ~80 they have made since 1970, has FAILED TO HAPPEN.

    “Rode and Fischbeck, professor of Social & Decision Sciences and Engineering & Public Policy, collected 79 predictions of climate-caused apocalypse going back to the first Earth Day in 1970. With the passage of time, many of these forecasts have since expired; the dates have come and gone uneventfully. In fact, 48 (61%) of the predictions have already expired as of the end of 2020.”

    To end 2020, the climate doomsters were proved wrong in their scary climate predictions 48 times – at 50:50 odds for each prediction, that’s like flipping a coin 48 times and losing every time! The probability of that being mere random stupidity is 1 in 281 trillion! It’s not just global warming scientists being stupid.

    These climate doomsters were not telling the truth – they displayed a dishonest bias in their analyses that caused these extremely improbable falsehoods, these frauds.

    There is a powerful logic that says no rational person or group could be this wrong for this long – they followed a corrupt agenda – in fact, they knew they were lying.

    The global warming alarmists have a NO predictive track record – they have been 100% wrong about every scary climate prediction – nobody should believe them.

    The radical greens have NO credibility, make that NEGATIVE credibility – their core competence is propaganda, the fabrication of false alarm.

    Allan MacRae published in the Calgary Herald on September 1, 2002, based on communication with Dr Tim Patterson:

    3. “If [as we believe] solar activity is the main driver of surface temperature rather than CO2, we should begin the next cooling period by 2020 to 2030.”

    MacRae updated his global cooling prediction in 2013, based on cold events that occurred starting circa 2008 near the end of Solar Cycle 23:

    3a. “I suggest global cooling starts by 2020 or sooner. Bundle up.”

    In 2019, expert meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo and I co-authored a paper describing the late planting in 2018 and 2019 and the huge Great Plains crop failure of 2019 due to cold, wet weather.
    THE REAL CLIMATE CRISIS IS NOT GLOBAL WARMING, IT IS COOLING, AND IT MAY HAVE ALREADY STARTED October 27, 2019
    Planting was ~one month across the Great Plains of North America for crop years 2018 and 2019. In 2018 the growing season was warm and the crop recovered, but in 2019 there was a huge crop failure across the Great Plains. In 2019 fully 30% of the huge USA corn crop was never planted because of wet ground. Much of the grain crop across the Great Plains was severely harmed because of early cold and snow in the Fall.

    We saw these very-cold weather patterns due to the instability of the polar vortex at the end of SC23 circa 2008, and this enabled me in 2013 to re-calibrate our 2002 global cooling prediction from “2020-2030” to “2020 or sooner”, at the end of much weaker SC24. A huge crop failure across the Great Plains of North America occurred in 2019. Now we have this brutal winter and very cold spring in 2020-2021. Nailed it.

    Crop losses are already significant this year. Worrisome.

    Hi again Jo:

    Points to ponder – Covid-19 Lockdoen was the greatest fraud of our age – even greater than global warming/green energy.the two greatest frauds of our age.

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2021/05/15/the-end-of-the-mask/#comment-3247199

    The Covid-19 lockdown fraud is deeper and more sinister – a Great Reset power play:

    The following credible paper states that USA deaths attributed to Covid-19 were 16 times higher than actual. Covid-19 was a false crisis.

    I published a similar comment many months ago in November 2020, by comparing the per capita death rate attributed to COVID-19 in Alberta, versus the reported per capita death rate in the United States, which was about 10 times higher.

    Covid death statistics in the USA are false and fraudulent – not ~500,000 Covid deaths, but 30,000 to 50,000 – similar to a typical flu year in the USA.

    Furthermore, in my recent paper, excerpted below, note that there is no “death bump” to mid-2020 in either Alberta or Canada – that is, no significant increase in total deaths from all causes over the trend of the previous seven years.

    That means there was no significant deadly Covid-19 “epidemic” in Alberta or Canada to mid-2020, and no justification for the panic, the lockdowns of the workforce and students, and the destruction of our economy – just as I correctly published more than one year ago, on 21&22 March 2020:

    21March2020 – Allan MacRae
    LET’S CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH: Isolate people over sixty-five and those with poor immune systems and return to business-as-usual for people under sixty-five. This will allow “herd immunity” to develop much sooner and older people will thus be more protected AND THE ECONOMY WON’T CRASH.

    22March2020 – Allan MacRae
    This full-lockdown scenario is especially hurting service sector businesses and their minimum-wage employees – young people are telling me they are “financially under the bus”. The young are being destroyed to protect us over-65’s. A far better solution is to get them back to work and let us oldies keep our distance, and get “herd immunity” established ASAP – in months not years. Then we will all be safe again.…

    All we really needed to do was over-protect the very elderly and infirm – the high-risk population – which we failed to adequately do. What a debacle!
    _______________________

    FAULTY COVID DEATH NUMBERS EXPLAINED
    The American Thinker, April 9, 2021
    By Dennis McGowan
    [excerpt]

    On October 12 of last year, a 25-page paper in Science, Public Health Policy and The Law was released that explained, in detail, the foundational reason for the publicly announced fatality numbers and the mechanism by which they were derived. This paper, authored by ten members of the scientific community is titled “Covid-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Perspective.” At the heart of the issue is the CDC and its methods for collecting and reporting the data, a model which was changed radically in the face of the current crisis.

    In 2003, the CDC authored and released guidance documents used by the forensic community titled Medical Examiners’ and Coroners’ Handbook on Death Registration and Fetal Death Reporting along with “Physicians’ Handbook on Medical Certification of Death.” These have been the standard for the certification of fatalities, nationwide, for seventeen years. However, in March of 2020 things changed.

    The National Center for Health Statistics released Covid-19 Alert No. 2 which changed the way deaths with connections to Covid 19 were reported and tabulated. The revealing line in the alert is in the last paragraph: “Covid-19 should be reported on the death certificates for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” [emphasis added] This changed the parameters for the inclusion of deaths from Covid, raising the numbers substantially.

    A table in the October study titled “Comparison of Total Covid-19 Fatalities Based Upon Different Reporting Guidelines” demonstrated that deaths through August 23rd of 2020 were higher by over 16 times as compared to the traditional definition. If the reporting of these deaths followed the CDC guidebook from 2003, the number of Covid deaths would have been 9,684. However, utilizing this new reporting and classification method that exclusively applied to Covid-19, the number of deaths is 161,392.
    file:///C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gifThe paper delves into a variety of other topics, some legal and some statistical, that are all intrinsically functions of the change in death reporting parameters initiated by the March 2020 alert. However, for so many of us who have had nagging doubts about the actual numbers, knowing that the calculus for recording these deaths had been replaced is reassuring. Having spent a year looking at Covid fatality numbers and assuming that the true count was more likely half or a third of what was being reported, this new report is both satisfying and startling. None of us would have guessed that the actual disparity would be that the number of Covid deaths, according to this study, is a bit less than 6% of the numbers reported by the media.
    ________________________________

    NO “DEATH BUMP” MEANS NO REAL DEADLY COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

    My recent paper:
    In 2020 there were NO excess deaths in Alberta or Canada – no total death bump means no deadly pandemic.
    Average age of Covid-19 deaths in Alberta was 82 – four years longer than average life expectancy of 78.

    WHERE IS THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC? WHY THE FULL LOCKDOWN?
    ANNUAL TOTAL DEATHS IN ALBERTA AND CANADA SHOW NOTHING UNUSUAL TO 30June2020
    by Allan MacRae, B.A.Sc., M.Eng., April 3, 2021

    From the total deaths plotted for Alberta and Canada, there were NO significant excess total deaths to 30June2020, and so there was NO justification for the incredibly costly Covid-19 lockdown, which is estimated to have caused 10 to 100 times more current and future harm than the Covid-19 illness.

    The important question is why the lockdowns were ever enacted, and why the tried-and-tested Alberta Emergency Management Plan was tossed out and a young medical officer given the impossible task of managing the alleged pandemic – that in the first half of 2020 was a hugely exaggerated, false crisis.

    In addition to needlessly destroying the economy, the impacts of the lockdown continue to cause harm:
    – Hospitals were emptied for ~2 months to make room for a “tsunami of Covid-19 cases” THAT NEVER HAPPENED;
    – Cancer tests, surgeries and other needed medical procedures were delayed and backlogged;
    – Deaths from opioid overdoses more than doubled, resulting in an increase of tens of thousands of years-of-life-lost;
    – Societal problems including substance abuse, family violence, poverty, and mental illness all increased;
    – The education system was disrupted and the harm to students will continue for years.

    There is ample evidence that lockdowns and masking had little impact on Covid-19 mortality. Sweden and South Dakota that did not lock down had similar or better mortality outcomes to those that did.

    In fact, the lockdowns encouraged the longevity of the Covid-19 illness and the development of more deadly variants. Most flu’s die out in the summer season, but lockdowns and masking allowed Covid-19 to survive through the summer. The Covid-19 problems since 30June2020 with renewed contagion and more dangerous variants were enhanced by the lockdowns – the lockdowns were a total debacle.

    Furthermore, the incessant testing and reporting of positive PCR tests as “cases” is harmful nonsense, needlessly creating fear and bad policy. A “case” exists NOT from a positive test, which is often asymptomatic, but from a real illness that requires treatment.

    I correctly concluded that the Covid-19 lockdowns were a huge error in early March 2020, and published that conclusion on 21&22March2020. All we needed to do, which I published at that time, was over-protect the very elderly and infirm (which we failed to do) and get everyone else back to work and school. The data shows that the lockdowns were not justified and were hugely harmful.

    Alberta and Canada are now in a far worse situation than if we had done nothing – no lockdowns, no masking, etc. How do we get out of the needless mess our governments have created? First, stop reacting in panic to overblown test results and other scary propaganda. Adults should take 4000IU of Vitamin D3 daily. Cease all lockdowns, masking and distancing measures now. Get everyone back to work and school.

    Let’s walk out into the sunshine and get back to enjoying our lives.

      Thanks Allan; brilliant.

      Some months ago I tried to get figures for total deaths in the U.K. and Australian systems. It was so difficult that it seemed that deliberate action had been taken to make them hard to find.

      In particular the U.K. data site had a weird warning about some people misrepresenting data. Searchers were asked to report people “misusing” official data. It was like something out of a high school student prank.

      Here in Australia we have lost 909 people in the last year and a half to CV19.

      In the same period regular suicides and road deaths would have made that CV19 thing seem irrelevant.

      The “cure” of Lockdown has been devastating And the full story, when told, will be horrific.

      A human tragedy.

        Hi Keith.

        Canadian Total Death data was similarly buried – I had to get it from a private source. There was no increase in total deaths in Alberta or Canada up to 30June2020 – no increase in total deaths means no deadly pandemic. The lockdowns etc were never justified.

        I knew about the Dr Fauci involvement about one year ago – he originated the gain-of-function virus research and offshored it to Wuhan when it was declared illegal in the USA.

        A year ago I concluded that the Covid-19 virus originated from the Wuhan lab and not at the wet market. The only question then was “did the virus jump (escape), or was it pushed?”

        Based on all the dystopian events since then, I conclude the virus was pushed out of the lab – deliberately released for political and financial gain.

        The gross mismanagement of this false pandemic since Day 1 cannot be simply ascribed to incompetence – there was never any justification for the lockdown of under-65’s – all we needed to do was over=protect the very elderly and infirm. I published that conclusion with confidence on 21March2020 and that was correct.

        The lockdowns have cost society about one hundred times more harm than the Covid-19 illness – it was never a close call. A criminal case is being prepared in Canada to pursue our government leaders for criminal negligence.

          And again, thanks.

          Any thread of common sense is welcome.

          I did make an error in the total CV19 deaths, it’s over 1,000 here in Australia.

          Long ago I wrote about the closure of many shops and businesses in our city. I was amazed that nobody seemed to connect these closures with the people behind them.

          Starting up a business is not easy, it takes time planning money and dedication and when many years of effort is smashed by unthinking political action it’s hard to imagine that the owners will just “bounce back” with a smile on their face.

          I could understand the shut down of small areas centred on a definite infection, but the wholesale lockup of everything is nuts.

    I find the widespread support for HCQ and ivermectin surprising, considering that the support is largely anecdotal.

    At this point in time, there are over 90 different drugs that have shown the potential for treating COVID-19, ignoring the placebo effect and the possibility that humans treated with sheep dip might have recovered on their own.
    https://scitechdaily.com/extensive-study-identifies-over-a-dozen-existing-drugs-as-potential-treatments-for-covid-19/

    I get the impression that those promoting HCQ and ivermectin are of the opinion that they are THE magic bullets and there is no point in looking for anything that might be better. What are the odds the the best possible treatment(s) would have been discovered early in the pandemic?

      Conclusion
      In these eight Peruvian State analyses, Ivermectin distributions preceded sound reductions in excess deaths and case fatality rate (CFR). The variation in the number of detected cases nor the vulnerable population decrease can explain this reduction. Other possible explanations, such as cross-immunity with dengue, or mere causality, have been discarded due to their lack of consistency in this study.
      Treatment with Ivermectin is the most reasonable explanation for the decrease in number of deaths and fatality rate in Peru. Its implementation in public policies is a highly effective measure to reduce the excess deaths and IFR of COVID-19.

      My greatest concern is the Covid-19 injections, which I believe in the long term will kill or seriously injure more people than the illness. Hope to be wrong; rarely am. It is especially criminal to be pushing these experimental injections to teenagers – high risk, no reward – insane.

        I have two children and two grandchildren.

        A couple of months ago my daughter told me that she had been advised by her doctor not to get vaccinated against CV19.

        Obviously she’ll apply this to the grandchildren and I felt greatly relieved by the news.
