Before I begin for those who want to call health-care workers “heroes”: Damn near every single “doctor” and hospital are included in the title of this article, and throughout I shall prove it.
Let’s start with President Trump and his HHS jackass who put into place financial incentives for people to wind up in the hospital, particularly those over 65 who are on Medicare, with even more financial incentives if you were put on a ventilator.
USA Today, hardly a “right wing conspiracy rag”, said this back in April of 2020:
We rate the claim that hospitals get paid more if patients are listed as COVID-19 and on ventilators as TRUE.
Hospitals and doctors do get paid more for Medicare patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or if it’s considered presumed they have COVID-19 absent a laboratory-confirmed test, and three times more if the patients are placed on a ventilator to cover the cost of care and loss of business resulting from a shift in focus to treat COVID-19 cases.
May I remind you that on the data from Wuhan we knew that 90+% of the time being put on a ventilator was futile for Covid-19 patients, and again, we knew that in March.
Doubt me? Here’s the study data which I reported out at the time — March of 2020.
Why would you pay three times more if you did a thing that had a 90+% rate of killing someone unless you wanted them to die?
That which you pay more for you will get more of — every time.
Now you can go ahead and claim that nobody “falsified” the data with regard to hospitals and death certificates, that is, claimed someone had Covid-19 and it killed them when they didn’t.
That doesn’t matter when you get down to brass tacks.
What does matter is that we knew how to stop people from being killed by Covid-19 all the way back to the summer months, conclusively so, in nearly every case. Yes, in some cases therapy and early intervention will fail (so do vaccines some of the time) but in most cases these therapies succeed.
When did we know that early intervention worked in old people particularly?
In April of 2020.
Did we make that something to be widely used immediately, back in April of 2020?
NO. In fact we did the opposite; the NIH specifically recommended against the use of Ivermectin.
If you don’t go to the hospital then the hospital doesn’t make their extra money, particularly if you’re 65+ and on Medicare. If the hospital doesn’t get you in there or you don’t get sicker they don’t get the even larger, three times larger, bonus from putting you on a machine that is extremely likely to kill you. Who is at the greatest risk from Covid-19? Those over 65 and thus on Medicare; statistically-speaking this is a disease that harms damn few younger individuals.
As the evidence piled up in the summer did we change the recommendations?
All the way to December we did not and indeed as of today the NIH position is “neutral”!
Again folks: These are real clinical physicians who are using this therapy in extremely high-risk patients with a 90-100% reduction in hospitalizations and deaths. Not once, not twice, repeatedly in every case. In addition there is not one failed clinical trial on record.
Why did we not strongly recommend and use Ivermectin despite the overwhelming evidence that it worked all the way back to April of 2020?
The $30,000 in extra payments to the hospital wasn’t enough — oh no, there were in fact tens of billions of dollars at stake, and your mother, grandfather or other family member had to be slaughtered in order to make sure that money flowed and kept flowing.
An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives. Taking into consideration input from the FDA, manufacturers decide whether and when to submit an EUA request to FDA.
The EUAs for vaccines (and Remdesivir) were illegal if there was an adequate, approved and available alternative. HCQ, Ivermectin (and budesonide) are all available and approved drugs. This meant that in order to obtain EUAs for Remdesivir, monoclonal antibodies and the vaccines on an EUA basis it was necessary to deliberately deny that the use of these existing therapeutic agents were adequate even though the data was that their use prevented somewhere between 75 and 90% of all hospital admissions when used early and even when not used until hospital admission prevented the majority of intubations and deaths.
In other words the data is that they work as well as a vaccine.
If that is not “adequate” would you mind telling me what would be?
Our governments at the federal and state levels, all 50 states including those like Tennessee and Florida which have claimed to be “leaders” in Covid-19, deliberately sat back and let your loved ones be denied known safe and likely effective treatments for Covid-19 and the data says that as a direct result of that intentional refusal a whole lot of them are dead.
Most, but not all physicians and hospitals not only went along with this bull**** they explicitly supported it and the hospitals got to bill Medicare for every person over 65 at a greatly elevated rate by doing so.
This is why the vast majority of thosewho Covid-19 killed have died.
Our local hospital’s record here is that nearly 65% of those admitted for Covid-19 left in a box.
Damn near all of those individuals should have survived but then the roughly $5 million our local hospital obtained in “extra and triple-extra payments”, assuming most or all of the 163 dead were on Medicare, would not have been paid out to them.
There was no medical reason for any of the hysteria, closures, mandates or anything else — including vaccines.
Why are you still quietly putting up with this bull****, including mask mandates, business and school closures and more?
Our government, physicians and hospitals knew how to keep Covid-19 from being a serious threat to your health in April of 2020 with cheap and widely-available drugs just as physicians use antibiotics for bacterial infections on a daily basis that would otherwise be deadly. Instead of using known safe and available existing drugs they intentionally let the virus kill nearly a half-million people along with the government destroying the education of our children and countless businesses and jobs for the explicit purpose of funneling billions of dollars to the medical and pharmaceutical industry, along with furthering the political aspirations of various actors all through the United States.
These were not deaths that occurred despite our “best efforts”; they were mass-homicide.
If you are willing to let your government slaughter your mother while believing their intentionally-false claim that wearing a diaper on your face “works” and as a result you sat back for the last year and watched 500,000 of your countrymen and women die rather than rising up and holding every one of those ghouls accountable for the unnecessary death they deliberately allowed for both political and financial profit then you are the monster.
In my nearly six decades of drawing breath on this rock I’ve never seen our government, until Covid-19 showed up, take actions that I believed were worthy of a no-bull**** uprising with essentially every government official at all levels being physically dragged out of office by their hair and tossed into the street with nothing more than their underwear remaining to their name. Never in my adult life would I have believed that our government, with its alleged “checks and balances”, would deliberately kill half a million American citizens over 12 months time by allowing them to choke on their own spit through the intentional concealment and outright suppression of known safe medical therapies via threats, executive orders, outright lies and even license suspensionsfor the explicit purpose of enriching certain “chosen people and corporations” both politically and economically.
Over the last 12 months I’ve read well over a hundred scientific and medical research papers and myriad references which in my opinion document conclusively that this is in fact exactly what happened at a level of proof more than sufficient to sustain criminal convictions.
I’ve given this virus and our government’s response to it at all levels more than one full year of my effort as an independent journalist.
That ends today, February 28th, 2021.
