    Time to revisit and publicly expose the combination of Operation Jade Helm and the Big Tech Pandemic Exercise. All of the same government agencies of people from Government Agencies were involved with both. I may be wrong but all this needs to be resurfaced again just in case.

    There are too coincidences between the two events vs behavior of the democrat party and democrat controlled states and municipalities.

    Just very strange and again confirms the threat President Trump presents to the establishment. Isn’t also odd that not single major “Republican Leader” except a few in congress or a couple of governors has actually said word in support of the President. We are living in interesting times folks, stay alert and safe. McConnell, McCarthy, et al are doing just enough to provide some public plausible distinction to hedge their best vs the democrat party and their puppet masters.

    Doctor and scientist Nise Yamaguchi meets with President Bolsonaro and proposes the adoption of early treatment with chloroquine throughout Brazil. When Dr. Nise Yamaguchi entered the Planalto Palace to talk to President Jair Bolsonaro, she lived one of the most decisive moments in her 40 years dedicated to medicine. An internationally renowned immunologist and cancerologist, a participant in scientific societies in Europe and the United States, a physician at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, Nise was at the forefront in several health battles in Brazil and worldwide, working with AIDS patients since the emergence of the first cases of the disease in Brazil; when taking courses in Germany and Switzerland on humanized care for cancer patients; when organizing highly complex health care centers in the country; acting in the war against H1N1 flu; and by contributing, as a founding partner and senior scientist to the World Cancer Alliance (based in Lyon, France), to improve access to cancer treatment in low- and middle-income countries. However, perhaps none of these remarkable achievements exceeds the dimension of the challenge it now faces: helping Brazil to overcome the coronavirus pandemic that so much fear and suffering has been sowing on the planet. There are people who are part of the solution and people who are part of the problem. Definitely, as evidenced by her professional trajectory, Nise Yamaguchi belongs to the first group, and it was as such that she introduced herself to the President of the Republic, bringing the good news that can change the course of the history of the epidemic in our country and offer a model of success to the world. In recent weeks, the doctor has been a witness and an active participant in a surprising turnaround in the treatment of Covid-19 patients. The case involves a community of 450,000 people over the age of 60 served by the Prevent Senior network in the city of São Paulo. “In February, the network’s hospitals recorded about 80 deaths from coronavirus in elderly patients,” says Nise. “Based on clinical studies carried out recently in France and other countries, we decided to adopt preventive treatment with this population, offering hydroxychloroquine in the first days of the infection. We immediately realized that this greatly reduced the risk of the disease getting worse. ” Through telemedicine and the use of a cell phone application, Prevent Senior monitored this at-risk population. About 400 people who had coronavirus symptoms received hydroxychloroquine at home, without having to go to the emergency room. Of this total, 200 have already been discharged and none – we repeat: none – needed to be hospitalized. “It is a very significant finding, because we are talking about almost half a million people, over 60 years old, vulnerable, with comorbidities (other diseases)”, observes the doctor. “In two weeks, we completely changed the reality: from crowded emergency rooms and dozens of deaths to a situation close to normal. The change was so sudden that we were accused of underreporting. But we were not failing to notify the deaths, it was that they were not occurring! ” Nise Yamaguchi is now committed to replicating this model throughout Brazil, so that everyone who has the first symptoms of the disease can receive hydroxychloroquine at home. “It is important to build ICUs, increase hospital beds, promote vertical isolation and adopt preventive measures – but we cannot limit ourselves to that. Early treatment with hydroxychloroquine can be done on a large scale, as we did with Tamiflu during the H1N1 epidemic. ” The doctor explains that the hydroxychloroquine, in association with the antibiotic azithromycin, works by strengthening human cells and decreasing the replication capacity of the virus. If applied until the 4th day of symptom onset, this treatment exponentially reduces the risk of hospitalization and the need to use a respirator. “We cannot wait to treat only those who have severe symptoms. It is also not a matter of choosing between equipment or medication, prevention or treatment. We shouldn’t use ‘or’, but ‘e’. One strategy alone will not be enough. We have to use all strategies. ” On social isolation, Dr. Nise observes, based on her experience in treating poor communities: “It is not possible to do social isolation in places where ten people live in the same house. In these places, it is necessary to treat those who are sick at the very beginning of the infection. ” Of course, it is a huge challenge to make treatment available to the population of a country like Brazil, with continental dimensions and huge disparities between regions. A first step is to encourage patients, as soon as the first symptoms of Covid-19 appear, to sign an adherence protocol for the use of hydroxychloroquine. It is a document in which the patient agrees to receive the medication and assumes the consequences

      Dear Mr. President,

      My democrat Governor and Mayor have deemed me a non-essential person and has ordered me to stay home. Being labeled non-essential has not been good for my self esteem.

      My self worth has not been this low since Hillary Clinton called me an irredeemable deplorable person. Tens of millions of non essential persons now sit at home to save 200k old fat people who have pre-existing conditions.

      Democrats have long championed that pre-existing conditions must be covered. They just never said the cost of such a program was to label me and others as non-essential human beings. Now that I know the true cost of what the democrats proposed, I strongly disapprove.

      Fortunately, I have found a help line to get me through this. It is ALL-RED-2020. Please pass the number along, there are a lot of people out there who need it.

      Sincerely,

      A Non-Essential Person

      The plea for ‘furloughed’ medical providers from around the country to go to NYC and ‘help out’ is highly suspicious to me.

      We are understanding that medical workers are contracting this virus at a higher rate than the general population. So, idiot Cuomo wants medical personnel to travel to NYC to satisfy the need to be needed? Needed to seed their native states once they leave?

      Thankfully, PDJT is sending military medical teams to NYC. The ‘national stockpile’ of the HC and z-pac medicines are available for these responders, and, hopefully, more meticulous logistics about where and when and how ‘vectors’ are disbursed will be evidenced.

            Really though, it’s idiotic that this isn’t our own Manhattan Project in Trump Time. It’s not an exotic drug that might or might not attack this virus. It’s an exceptionally well known highly inexpensive ionophore that simply creates channels within cell walls which admit zinc, principal ingredient in Zicam and other virus fighting OTC products and a known must-have in cold season.

            The zinc, only easily able to enter cells with the ionophore Hydroxychloroquinine, greatly reduces the viruses ability to replicate, allowing the body, with the adfitional anti-viral in the Z-Pack, to heal itself quite rapidly.

            For $20 in total treatment cost.

Reason being is supply. Combo only for folks who aren’t risk for the QT prolongation (and yes, that drug interaction is real and a risk) other wise folks are getting hydrochlorquine.
            So, no, we aren’t gonna give every one hydrochlorquine since most people recover fine. We just don’t have the supply at the moment.

      Get real folks … there are going to be 1,000’s of cases from this point forward that will Eb and Increase as with every other disease in the US. Plus, the right statistics can be created with changes in definitions as is being discussed here on CTH.

      The NUMBERS are the problem if the President allows them to stampede people with out any honest discussion about every other disease we risk daily.

      The illusion being played out at this time by the Media, democrat party and financial puppet masters is to hide/distract everybody from the fact we take risks every day and that this virus is just one more we need to “try to control” as best we can.

      The Numbers will always be large and the numbers can/will always be made to INCREASE no matter what remedies are applied. The objective is to keep the panic in place through November. The President and Republican Party loose the election if this occurs due to “mail-in and digital” voting that will be mandated by states controlled by the democrat party and State Supreme courts, as was already tried and worked in November 2018.

        Even in Republican States, especially in the South where States are still under close supervision to ensure Racial Equality, law suits can and will be brought to State and Federal Courts to install “mail-in and digital voting” due to impact of the disease on minority communities. This is the reason for all the current “racial” spin on communities hit hardest by the virus.

        Agree, if you keep looking you’ll find more. The amount of testing varies wildly. Obviously the raw numbers vary, but I’ve been comparing raw numbers of tested to total state populations. For instance Florida has just over half the population of CA, yet we’re not far behind in the total number of people tested, we trail by a little less than 20,000. New York on the other hand is about the same size as Florida and has tested about 3 times as many

      I’ll go you one better–instead “of the people hospitalized with COVID-19…”–How about–“of the people who tested positive for COVID-19….”. My understanding is most, if not all, people who want to be tested have to present symptoms and get a doctor’s scrip to get tested. That means their doctor should already know them, their medical history, and whether or not they are a good candidate for a trial with no known problems of prescription combining.

      Of course only on a voluntary basis. I think we’ve had enough doses gathered in the past 2 weeks to have treated every single person who showed positive.

      If it works only 50% of the time that still would have flattened the hell out of the curve and take the pressure off of medical infrastructure. More importantly that would keep 50% of them off the ventilators and save a hell of a lot more lives altogether.

      For a “blind” statistical study participants are randomly given the drug being tested while others are given a plecebo (sugar pill). Participants have to legally agree to participate because a large percentage of them will get the placebo which by definition will not help them. Would you agree to possibly get a plecebo instead of a drug thousands of doctors are already telling the world works? I sure wouldn’t. This is why initially anyone requesting to receive the H-C-Z cocktail treatment were forced by Cuomo to enroll in the blind study which means many of them did not get the drugs that works.

      Unfortunately, it is the employees who are made responsible for tis task, and potential customers sometimes become angry. Not every temperature is due to COVID-19, or even indicative of communicable disease.
      Something this does suggest to me, a temperature is a symptom of illness, right? So, if Taiwan, right next to China, is keeping deaths down by testing for a symptom, doesn’t this blow the idea of ‘asymptomatic carriers’ spreading the disease around, out of the water?

      BTW, I heard this from a man married to a Taiwanese woman, a week or so ago.

          You can still garden. However, one reason they closed the parks, trails, etc, is to keep from having to send medical crews out to rescue people who get hurt doing such things. It is one way to free up ambulances, doctors and hospitals at this time of a national epidemic. It seems that a lot of people get injured jogging, climbing, trail hiking, etc. It is just a precaution that is being taken. Another reason is there are some people who just can’t measure social distancing and/or who refuse to take precautions that may endanger others in the name of individual freedom (see above for examples).

    “The forecast predicted, for example, that the United States would need around 164,750 hospital beds for COVID-19 patients on Saturday. Yet the COVID Tracking Project, a team of journalists and data analysts who collect and tabulate coronavirus data from state tallies around the country, reported only around 22,158 currently hospitalized coronavirus patients nationwide on Saturday.

    The discrepancies are also stark when looked at on a state-by-state basis. The model estimated that 65,434 patients would need hospital beds in New York State on Friday. In reality, there were 15,905 hospitalizations in that state by Sunday morning, according to the COVID Tracking Project.”

      Difference between ICU beds in Washington State – listed on the IHME site as 341 for the entire state, but according to Kaiser there are 450 in King County alone and close to 1000 statewide…and their “worst case scenario” is that 350 will be needed on the “peak” day of April 11th so we are actually nowhere near capacity! Even if their numbers were accurate as to the need, it would still be less than 1/3 of the state’s total number of ICU beds!!

    American journalist Helen Bunyiski writes on several interesting ways in which (this time …) “Covid-19” is being used to push a too-familiar set of agendas. Why don’t we get rid of families and cash? Soros-funded progressive globalists using Covid-19 to push own ‘technocratic solutions.’ https://www.rt.com/op-ed/484889-coronavirus-abolish-everything-cash-family/

    Technocratic activists are full of solutions to the coronavirus crisis – the same panaceas they’ve been pushing for years. What problem wouldn’t be solved by abolishing the family, privacy, and other things we take for granted?!

    Under the time-honored rubric of “never let a good crisis go to waste,” the usual suspects have come out of the woodwork to tout their favored “solutions” as answers to the coronavirus pandemic and the attendant economic crisis. Of course, they’ve been pushing these initiatives for years, and there’s a reason (or three) that they haven’t been terribly popular – they’d require completely upending current societal models, and few have the stomach for such fundamental change.

    But desperate times call for desperate measures. Surely there’s something of value in these revolutionary projects? Let’s have a look, shall we…

    Major sections: “Abolish cash,” “Abolish Fossil Fuels,” “Abolish Privacy,” and “Abolish the Family.”

    We all should remain very aware that there are always radicals out there who are just looking for an excuse. Any excuse at all. Some of those “dystopian novels” we’ve all read weren’t really fiction.

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- UNM Hospital enrolled its first COVID-19 patient into its new clinical trial, aimed at finding effective coronavirus treatments, university officials said.

    The hospital is launching its first two clinical trials which will include COVID-19 patients who are hospitalized, have trouble breathing and may or may not have pneumonia.

    One clinical trial will treat patients who are suffering from pneumonia with the anti-viral drug remdesivir. The second clinical trial will treat patients who are not suffering from pneumonia with the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

    —–

    There are currently more than 200 proposed clinical trails concerning coronavirus treatment. UNM’s clinical trials were selected because of early signs of success via other groups.

    Dr. Larson said it could be weeks before researchers know whether the clinical trial treatments are working.

    “A similar trial with the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin was started last week in New York City, in Pittsburgh, at the Cleveland Clinic and at the Mayo Clinic — so I think we should be able to hear within a relatively short time how it’s going at all of these places,” said Dr. Larson.

    I wanted to post this comment separately again as it exposes the reason for the sudden push by the democrat party to examine the impact of the virus along “racial” lines.

    As was discussed earlier here on CTH, the States control voting processes not the Federal Government. The FEC only ensures a fair process and no fraud but only acts if fraud or abuse is reported by a State.

    Even in Republican States, especially in the South where States are still under close supervision to ensure Racial Equality, law suits can and will be brought to State and Federal Courts to install “mail-in and digital voting” due to impact of the disease on minority communities. This is the reason for all the current “racial” spin on communities hit hardest by the virus.

I know that is true here in Asheville NC.

      The only community event you see any number of black people attending is the Holiday Parade because their kids are in the bands that march and they have other youth groups that participate. They do not socialize with the white people. They even have their own radio station. It seems to be keeping them healthy in this instance.

      But if we develop “herd immunity” Bill Gates cannot make billions off of test kits and vaccines. SO he wants us all locked down.

        Flashback Year 2000: Bill Gates’ Money

        Probably the warning I heard most often in conversations about the Gates Foundation had to do with the law of unintended consequences. “Grant-making on that scale is a very difficult art,” says Edward A. Ames at the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, who fears that the people in charge of the “huge new pools of money being turned to philanthropy” may not know enough about “the impact they can have on the fields that are the objects of their generosity.”

        Richard Gilder, an investment manager, cautions, “Giving is as tough a business as getting.” Gilder has done a substantial amount of both. “You can do so much damage,” he says. “The rule in philanthropy, as in medicine, should be, ‘First, do no harm.”‘

        Also the digital identity tattoos he wants to give us along with the vaccination. That may be the priority.

      Thanks much for posting this Professor Knut Wittkowski video, it’s very wise, educational and well done. Apparently taken of him in NYC btw. Talks a lot about herd immunity necessity and how one can’t truly control a respiratory virus.

      I tried to avoid watching this, but in the end I felt compelled to watch.

      At the very least Prof. Wittkowski’s voice needs to be heard within the Task Force team of advisors. He would likely be able to combat the one-sided views of Fauci and Birx.

      I wonder whether PDJT (and others) are already aware given their change of mind on masks and PDJT’s continued stress that “the cure cannot be worse than the disease”.

      When exactly did this go from being a surface and droplet transmitted virus to an airborne virus? The WHO/CDC seem to have dropped the ball on that one.

      If only we had real journalists to bring these very pertinent questions up at the briefings. We can’t expect PDJT to know EVERYTHING.

    If we can social distance at a grocery store, why can’t we do the same elsewhere, say a local clothing boutique? This is madness meant to destroy our economy. Let’s OPEN our businesses! “Who are these clowns who made these ignorant lists and demanded retailers follow them to their own detriment? And why are police forces, which have plenty to worry about these days, now responsible for enforcing this pointless garbage? So long as people socially distance, there is no reason why they can’t pick up the kinds of extra supplies they might need beyond eating”

    A rather bleak assessment of the current crisis from today’s American Thinker:

    Did Anyone Think This Through?

    “If I were an ambitious leftist trying one more time to get socialized health care across the goal line I couldn’t plan it any better: intentionally throw tens of millions of Americans out of work and deprive them of their health insurance…

    I fear Donald Trump has taken the bait and he knows this. He is trapped in a car barreling down the highway toward economic disaster and a great depression, and he knows it. He is desperately looking for an off ramp but unfortunately he has turned the accelerator and the wheel over to the ‘experts.’

    The ‘experts’ are people of genuine theoretical scientific knowledge but no real-world experience and no capability of risk assessment beyond the specific risks in their chosen field. They are focused on the virus and only the virus, because it is not their job to worry about anything but the virus. They could, without blinking an eye, recommend a six-month in-home lockdown. You could scream, ‘But people will starve by the millions!’ That is not their concern…

    But there’s another bunch of people in that car. Malevolent people within the government, federal and state, who would love nothing more than to slam the car into the wall, destroy the economy, the lives of millions of people, and destroy America’s preeminence in the world, and the Trump presidency…

    At some point very soon, Trump will have to accept the fact that the ones he has turned the car over to are not going to stop, slow down, or turn. There is no incentive or reason for them to do so. So far, Trump has confined himself to tossing money out the windows of the speeding car hoping somehow this will soften the blow. It won’t and it can’t….”

    • Lady in Red and Og- I am so glad that you are posting these pieces from American Thinker.
      They have had some of the absolute best articles out there about the Chinese Flu crisis, really top notch.
      I totally agree with the speeding car metaphor as well.
      As always I hope and pray that someone from Team Trump is monitoring the underground press.

    So we have 9 states left whose Governors still believe in liberty. God bless them and hopefully they don’t cave to the panic mobs.

    As a reminder to our panic/hysteria stricken leaders who have lost all sense of scale and proportion…U.S. confirmed cases of just over 300,000 is one tenth of one percent (.001) of U.S. population while total deaths of 8,700 is 25 ten thousandths of a percent (.000025) of U.S population. How many zeros do we need after the decimal before we can re-open America?

    Think of all the trillions of dollars both China and Russia have spent developing nuclear weapons, hypersonic planes and missiles, huge armies etc to try and defeat/destroy the USA when all they really needed all along was a complicit US media and a handful of crazy medical “experts” to promote nonstop this hysteria around a virus.

    Who’d of thunk it.

    GIVE THE COCKTAIL (Hydroxychloroquine, z-pack and Zinc) TO ALL INFECTED PATIENTS WHO CAN TAKE IT, NOW!

    Then provide same cocktail to any healthcare worker who shows signs or tests positive with heavy backup inventory of Hydroxychloroquine and PPE supplies in the 5-6 hot spots.

    Continue in/out restriction at Nursing Homes for 2-3 more weeks

    Ask retired seniors over 70 to stay at home except for essential needs for 2-3 more weeks

    Distribute hydroxychloroquine to all CVS, Walgreens, Walmart’s, Clubs and grocery pharmacy to dispense to individuals who have a local DR script AND present documentation of a positive COVID-19 test, no refills

    Fire Fauci And Birx

    Give this a 2 week head start and tell Americans we go back to work in 2 weeks.

    Appoint a SC (Maybe a Sidney Powell type) to investigate if people used COVID-19 as cause of death fraudulently. Then investigate if this crisis was planned, leveraged in any way as an act of terror whereby people andor groups were speaking about this last summer/fall.

    On the ground: From good friend of mine, top dog surgeon at a large metro area hospital in TN.

    “Hey buddy
    Hospital is not doing elective cases
    So that hurts
    People on furlough
    Staff on flex hours
    Empty beds
    We are not over run at present
    We have a few COVID cases
    But not unmanageable”

    I told him 3 weeks ago, while his hospital was in middle of emergency reconfiguration, that the numbers were just not there, decent chance they sit empty. And here we are. The Dr is not happy. Knows the motive and method deployed.
