Michigan Democrat Governor Asks Feds for Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Coronavirus, Four Days After Banning Use…

On Friday March 27th Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer threatened to revoke the medical licenses of doctors and pharmacists who prescribe hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus in Michigan.  Four days later, March 31st, the same governor asks the federal government to send her hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients. Go figure.

MICHIGAN – […] “We want to ensure that doctors have the ability to prescribe these medicines,” she said. “We also want to make sure that the people who have prescriptions that predated COVID-19 have access to the medication they need. And so all of the work that we’ve done is trying to strike that balance.”

In its approval letter, the FDA wrote that “[b]ased on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19.”

“When used under the conditions described in this authorization, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate when used to treat COVID-19 outweigh the known and potential risks of such products,” FDA Chief Scientist Denise M. Hinton wrote in the approval letter. (more)

  1. At today’s briefing, I learned that President Donald J. Trump saved two million lives.

    It’s *Science*!

      I majored in communications, taking classes with a lot of football and basketball jocks. Communications was the most popular major among these student athletes. It’s not like a journalism degree for writing stories, but it’s great for getting into broadcast news.
      I’m pretty sure Ron Burgundy majored in communications.

      I didn’t get into my state’s best law school. I went to a third-tier law school.

      Nobody ever called me a genius, except for my father when he was being mean and sarcastic.

        I earned BA, MA and PhD degrees in Communications at a major state universities, taught Comms courses and chaired Comms and Journalism/PR graduate and undergrad programs at other major (“Best”) universities. Please don’t assign “Journalism” degrees, courses or schools any higher status or integrity than what many would otherwise grant to mere “Communications” programs/majors/courses/students. Many of the latter are motivated by more honest goals. Most of the former are taught early on that merely reporting the facts just isn’t a career objective.

        After World War 1 Journalism went full-leftist, and Woodrow Wilson worked with Edward Bernays (S. Freud’s nephew) and the “Committee on Public Information” to con Americans into supporting America’s involvement in that War. Bernays went on to found “Public Relations” and made millions showing megacorporations how to shill working-class America into buying products, usually unhealthy ones, as well as services which they struggled to afford.

        As a student I had a great deal of difficulty with the pretentiousness, hypocrisy and double-standards of my Journalism professors. My Communications professors weren’t much better, but most of them admitted their biases and acknowledged their shortcomings.

        Many years later, having to manage “Journalism” professors and “Journalism” students’ entitlement mindset in an overall “School of Communications” as a department chair de-wooled my eyes in quite a short length of time. Most “journalists” are pretenders and liars when they’re not otherwise occupied with manipulation and power plays. The latest exhibit, of course, would be Mini Mike, but there are a host of others (McClatchys, Murdochs, Hearsts and others). While independent journalism exists, most of that is engaged in asymmetric warfare with an entrenched corporate journalist industry that has toed the Socialist line since the days of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society (from 1905 onwards).

        “Journalism”, in the service of anything other than pure political mobilization, propaganda, and social(list) engineering, has never existed. I’m sure my more conservative “journalist” friends may have prima facie objections to these statements, but I am also certain that I would simply have to resort to history and a bit of adult beverage sharing to convince them otherwise. Any other position, and I’m sure someone will take my blanket assertion here the wrong way, simply isn’t intellectually honest.

        And: While Ron Burgundy is one of my cultural heroes, he’s a fictional character. The myth and cultural fraud of morally superior, “objective” “Journalism” is all too factual.

        Stay classy, Treepers!

          Thanks for that insight into the field, KaweahKid. It’s interesting to read something like that and compare it to what I already know or have heard before. Communications is communications, but journalism is all about spinning and BSing. Sounds about right, eh?

          Also, it’s good to see that more and more people are turning away from the entrenched corporate media and getting their news from a variety of sources online, where they can get a clearer picture of what’s really going on in the world. That great turning away is what helped Trump to get elected and what keeps his approval rating high. The foamy snarling of the socialist media is having less and less effect, which can only benefit us all going forward.

          The dirty secret is that the MIGOP would rather have a Democrat in office that a conservative. A few years ago, former Lt. Gov Calley was given $$$ by the DeVos people to root out conservative PDs on a township level. The Calley’s (both him and her) are frauds and shills.

          The upcoming, younger, DeVos folks are leftists and that money controls the MIGOP for now so expect them to do what the money says.

          Open primaries make it very difficult for conservatives to win in MI. Just what the MIGOP wants. A change to closed primaries is always eventually rejected in inter-party, committee meetings.

      Maybe Michigan could build some of these:

      “Engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created an easily-manufactured, disposable and portable emergency ventilator they hope can be quickly put into production to help hospitals deal with a surge of COVID-19 patients.

      Engineers at the university’s Grainger College of Engineering in collaboration with Carle Health in Urbana worked to create a prototype that has run for more than 75 hours — about 125,000 breathing cycles — and works as well as a commercial model, the school announced.

      Following successful testing, the components and design of the prototype — called the Illinois RapidVent — have been posted for anyone to download for free at the college’s website. The university will not receive royalties from the design nor benefit financially from production of the ventilators, according to Rashid Bashir, the college’s dean and a professor of bioengineering.”

        The main problem is that an ICU ventilator is complex. To effectively treat ARDS, you need to be able to deliver not just set volumes of air/oxygen, but you need pressure controls, variable inhalation/exhalation times, assisted ventilation that triggers when a patient tries to breathe, variable end-expiratory pressure settings, et al.

        ICU ventilators are much harder to design and build than anesthesia ventilators used on people who have normal lungs. I don’t doubt that UIUC engineers can do it, but “fully operational, cheap and disposable” is another matter. It’s like “light, cheap and durable” for a bicycle. You have to pick two.

The bigger issue is there isn’t the medical staff to manage a large increase in very sick patient who require mechanical ventilation. The push to make xxx thousand ventilators is the 2020 COVID19 equivalent of the FEMA Katrina mobile homes that ended up dumped at the Mena, AR airport.

        Apparently, yes. He wrote it in 2005, so it’s not a new release. Here’s the synopsis:
        Life today for citizens of the developed world is safer, easier, and healthier than for any other people in history thanks to modern medicine, science, technology, and intelligence. So why is an epidemic of fear sweeping America? The answer, according to nationally renowned health commentator Dr. Marc Siegel, is that we live in an artificially created culture of fear. In False Alarm, Siegel identifies three major catalysts of the culture of fear—government, the media, and big pharma. With fascinating, blow-by-blow analyses of the most sensational false alarms of the past few years, he shows how these fearmongers manipulate our most primitive instincts—often without our even realizing it. False Alarm shows us how to look behind the hype and hysteria, inoculate ourselves against fear tactics, and develop the emotional and intellectual skills needed to take back our lives.

          “The passions and routines of everyday life are our primary defenses against contagious fear.”

          Think about this. It seems the way to cope may well be to turn off the news for a couple of days, and reduce our consumption of news articles and opinions. Get immersed in your favorite hobby, and leave the computer and TV alone for a while.

    With just about everybody locked in the house, it looks like the spread of the virus is mainly through the healthcare system at this point. Infected patient goes to the hospital, infects the staff, which infects other staff, staff goes back home or moonlights at nursing home or other hospital and infects others to complete the round trip. Once you get some herd immunity in the hospital system the cases will collapse. Looks like it takes about a month to six weeks. Need a better system.

I knew I did not have the Wuhan Flu (very productive cough, no fever, aches, etc), but it did change. A trip to an outpatient clinic revealed that I had developed acute bronchitis. For which I received a prescription for one of those 6 pill Z-Paks.

      The lungs are still not “quite right”. Another friend from church said she had bronchitis once and it took her a long time to get better. However, she was a smoker (I am not), so there is that…

      I think regional factors have been in play. LA is quite spread compare to NYC. The rate of spreading can be different. Weather might also be a factor. Use of mass public transportation can be a factor. It seems like NYC got infected ppl all of the world especially from Europe as the surge started after Italy.

      He made a very rare error with that line of reasoning. Not surprising since he is in such distress himself, but the entire thought process and conversation left out the early travel ban, which of course, didn’t stop a lot of carriers. We need him, and he needs our prayers.

      Now this is simply my own unsupported conjecture, but would a lot of business travellers from China have entered California before travelling on to New York for an extended stay?

      The death stats over that time need examining, as well as a random antibody survey undertaking.

        Thanks for the interesting link, Jan P-T. People that are dying “with” corona virus are being reported to have died “from” Corona virus. This hypes up the hysteria and negatively impacts government decision-making on the best course of action to protect lives and the economy. Statistical lies are creating a tragic outcome. There will be no more worldwide deaths this year than in previous years. Possibly even fewer than the historical average since people are paying more attention to prevention of the spreading of germs. WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! Eventually, that will be true.

        Possible, even likely, this virus has been with us since the beginning of flu season. Californias close ties to China could have spread the virus through the population sooner than elsewhere but since we werent aware and checking for it, it was attributed to the flu.

        This theory would squash the panic inducing hysteria theories put forward by the press and even by Birx and Fauci of 1 to 2 million deaths without mitigation and 100k to 200k with perfect mitigation.

        I often wonder why President Trump allows these numbers to continue to be put forward. The 1 to 2 million number is from a study by the Imperial College that even they have backtracked on.

        I trust our President to have a plan though and he is using this for our advantage. A lemon to lemonade type deal. I love the idea of the 2 trillion for infrastructure phase 4 stimulus plan. Doing it now with zero percent interest is brilliant.

    I reside in Michigan and believe Gretched/Gov. was elected with rampant voter fraud.
    She has been downright disrespectful to her constituents given Trump won Michigan and G. Witmer has been disrespectful and displayed contempt for Trump and by extension anyone that voted for Trump!!!
    Gretched announced all auto dealerships would no longer be able to sell cars
    and gave 8 hours notice.
    This made it impossible for cars to be delivered the next day when countless deals had already been finished. Any leased car that is returned can no longer get another car from any where in Michigan!! Residents are traveling to Indiana to purchase a car. This may sound like a minimal issue, however the other states have allowed dealerships to continue selling cars but, with social distancing practiced. Believe me, shopping at a grocery store is much more likely to cause an exposure, then buying a car.
    Witmer clearly does not care about Michigan’s auto industry. An SBA loan or larger one will not address the loss of an extended freeze on selling cars.
    Witmer is using the virus as an excuse to tank Michigan’s economy!! It is so obvious.
    Trump is downplaying how stupid Witmer is and I am pleased he called her out. I believe Witmer is taking directions from the Obama faction that helped get her elected.
    Just remember Obama also campaigned for Gillum in Florida. That wasa close election with DeSantis winning Imagine if Gillum had won.
    Florida would be a sanctuary city with the whole state shut down like Michigan. Gillum is currently in rehab after being caught in a hotel room wither meth., you can’t make this crap up!!!
    I think the democrats look for weak candidates to prop up in the important swing states and if they can cheat enough to get them elected, they control them.
    It’s frightening because the local politicians impact the amount of voter fraud that occurs.
    Witmer is not a reflection of Michigan and some above remarks passing judgement on the voters is not fair. It’s bad enough that we are stuck with her, believe me it’s nearly impossible to recall a governor in Michigan.
    Clearly she believes she will move on to bigger things, she’s so blatantly ruining Michigan.

  39. a) Obviously, if a state governor can threaten to yank the “licenses” of doctors and pharmacists should they prescribe a known and proven life-saving drug to sick people, the scam of “state licensing” of such professions — basically a protection racket that allows the elite of those professions to limit competition — is exposed, The licensing of doctors and physicians based on examination of credentials and maintaining records of complaints of fraud and fatal malpractice would be more safely entrusted to — seriously — the staff of Good Housekeeping magazine.

    b) If “Governor” Gretchen (Half)Witmer had any honor (a hilarious notion, admittedly) she would now arrange a live televised press conference, admit her previous action had no purpose but to help the Green Extremists who hope to see 98 percent of humanity killed off “to better restore our Earth to a pristine state more pleasing to the Goddess Gaia,” kneel down, apologize, slit open her own belly, and then beckon the lowest ranking Democrat in the state Legislature to finish the job by taking her head.

    Democrat activists — especially in their twin propaganda branches, “Hollywood” and “television” — now speak of indicting or impeaching Donald Trump because he has “blood on his hands” every time a bed-ridden nonagenarian with a compromised immune system dies of the flu — as normally happens 20,000 to 60,000 times every year (though curiously I’ve never heard any of them say Dwight Eisenhower had “blood on his hands” for all those American soldiers who died between 1942 and 1945. I mean, their standard is not merely tireless faith and relentless hard work, but utter, God-like perfection. Right?)

    So how come they never call for corrupt morons like Getchen (Half)Witmer and Steve “Whatever-Caesars-Palace-Wants” Sisolak to take the only honorable course now left to them?

      Hydroxychloroquine may not be a “miracle cure,” but there is enough evidence to “justify its use” at this point, said Dr. Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious diseases division at Henry Ford Health System.

      The Detroit-based hospital system is using hydroxychloroquine in combination with other therapies in an attempt to reduce the likelihood of complications, Zervos said Tuesday in a video chat with reporters. About 800 patients — half in Detroit — have been treated with the drug since March 1 at various Henry Ford hospitals, according to a spokeswoman.

      “We have had a number of success stories — patients that have been severely ill, we’ve gotten them off the ventilator and out of the hospital,” Zervos said. But hydroxychloroquine appears to have greater benefits “if we’re able to start the therapy earlier,” he added.
