      Who really cares about what the patently corrupt W.H.O. says or does. The top W.H.O. honcho sold himself to the Chicom government and contributed to converting what might have been a manageable seasonal infection into a full blown pandemic. He also gave dirty leftist politicians an excuse to both, kill many elderly people for reasons that had nothing to do with health care, and push to legalize more national electoral fraud.

      “WHO suspends hydroxychloroquine trials”
      ******
      After a brief look, I couldn’t find out what the trial is/was but if it involved HQC alone or with antibiotic for treatment, then stopping the trial is not unreasonable. The brief study from NYU and others suggest Zinc needs to be included for any benefit. Safety is also a concern. People point out that Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine have been used for 50 years for Malaria prophylaxis and more recently for Lupus, RA, Lyme disease, etc. with a high degree of safety. Best I can tell, those comparisons are apples to avocados. The approx. dosages for Malaria prophylaxis is 400mg per week, Lupus 200-400mg per day and for WuFlu it’s the Wild West with doses of 500mg twice a day, 600-800mg per day, 1200+mg per day for three days then 800mg per day, etc., etc. HCQ lasts a long time in the body and at those high doses, it might have higher than expected cardiac toxicity.

        Depends on the trial. Globalists screw up the dosages, leave out the Zinc, and prescribe it much too late to save SARS-COV-2 patients from death and/or permanent lung damage.

        Competent health professionals (ie.. those with no hidden agenda) have reported amazing results, however, with *early intervention* (within 3 days of onset of COVID-19 symptoms in high risk patients).

        Dr Zelenko’s regimen is 200mg Hydroxychloroquine 2x daily for 5 days, 220 mg Zinc 1x daily for 5 days, and 500 mg Azythromycin 1x day for 5 days. It’s not as complicated as that Bill Gates vaccine crowd would have us believe. I think they screw up the trials on purpose, to promote their own warped agenda.

        • Zelenko’s fabulous results conveniently don’t include any patients given placebos, to check for sure that people truly do any better with the cocktail than without it. He just gives his formula to everybody. That’s a problem with studying a disease where the majority of patients get better on skilled nursing alone. You can give them a drug combo that doesn’t actively harm them, or no medication at all, and most will still recover. It doesn’t prove that the meds they were given CAUSED the recovery. Same problem with Roualt’s studies. No placebo groups for control.

          So far no study involving any combo of HCQ, compared to patients given just vitamins, or just zinc, has shown a better rate of outcomes. Great for malaria, great against lupus and some skin conditions. No proof that it does anything against COVID-19, compared to close monitoring, IV fluids and supplemental oxygen. I’m willing to wait for the other hundred or so double-blind studies to get published. But so far, HCQ isn’t proven to have any consistent effect against the virus itself.

          Because it’s an anti-inflammatory, it’s theoretically possible the drug might “buy time” for some patients until their own immune system kicks in to beat the virus. That’s not the same as having a direct therapy to counteract the pathogen. I think it’s quite likely we will end up with a cocktail of more than one anti-viral, the way the therapies against HIV developed. That process took years to evolve and refine, but we did end up with very effective combos that can be tweaked for the differences in a patient’s pre-existing conditions.

            When you have a potentially fatal disease and a drug or drug combination with such positive results it is unreasonable to give a placebo. In those cases where there is such risk, statistics are used.

            Moreover, there is an explanation for action, which is that the zinc is the active chemical and HCQ as an ionophore facilitates the zinc transport across the cell membrane.

            So, claims of no proof are specious.

            Moreover, there are issues as to how early the combo is given, whether the patient has comorbidities, what other drugs had the patient been taking before hand, etc, etc.

            Other countries are using the drug combination. But HCQ + Zinc has also been used for another virus, ebola as well as influenza with positive results. So, this is not a shot in the dark.

            • To reiterate, most COVID patients, including those hospitalized, get better without ANY drug. It’s only a “fatal disease” to a very small percentage of patients.

              One can’t prove the effectiveness of a drug unless you can compare the outcomes of those who get it against those who don’t. Placebo effect (where a patient BELIEVES a treatment will work, and therefore “turns on” their own capacity for healing) is real and powerful. It has to be monitored.

                Not true. Placebo effects can be ruled out with statistics. Sorry, your argument is a common myth. Placebo helps to reduce the number of patients but when you use 1000 patients, placebo is unnecessary.

                • No, 1000 patients is statistically insignificant when you have millions of confirmed cases. FDA support for any specific use REQUIRES replicability and placebo results. Drugs do not get general approval without double-blind studies, and the ability of other researches to duplicate results when using identical protocols. You’re arguing in support of a reality that doesn’t exist. The accepted process is what it is.

        Taken WITH Zinc, of coarse. Almost ALL substances are lethal, if taken in sufficient quantities.

        Many women take Iron supplements, for example. Its OTC, and is considered very safe, WHEN TAKEN AS DIRECTED.

          I have no independent expertise on this subject, just read reviews which keep evolving. Example: (This is a month old and likely out of date, but:)

          Click to access background-on-hydroxychloroquine-and-covid-19.PDF

          Hydroxychloroquine is reported to have a narrow Therapeutic Index (benefit vs toxicity) and there may be other variables ie. Zn and at least with Lupus, vitamin D levels. My reading of the “tea leaves” today is that HCQ with whatever else will be marginally effective in treatment of the established disease but may be useful combined with Zn and antibiotics for prophylaxis and early after onset of infection. I haven’t read any studies where “anti-virals” are worth a bucket of spit either. Tocilizumab, an IL-6 blocker, seems to have benefit in very sick pts. I don’t expect to see any reliable data for at least 6-12 months. A confounding problem is that the Wu Flu seems to be much less lethal and contagious then first advertised by the “experts”.

        So apparently one of the side effects of Hydroxychloroquine is ventricular arrhythmia. This was known already.

        Given a choice of dying from COVID-19 or taking Hydroxychloroquine and risking development of a ventricular arrhythmia, I think most people would choose the latter.

        If anything, this is evidence that Hydroxychloroquine isn’t suitable as a prophylactic, but it’s not evidence of it being a poor treatment of serious COVID-19 cases.

        And I write all of this as a person who is not a fan of this drug. I’m OK with people using it if other treatments aren’t working.

    1. In 1953, Congress’s Reece Committee investigated the great Tax-Exempt Foundations: the Carnegie Endowment & the Ford & Rockefeller Foundations. Norman Dodd, head investigator, discovered info that continues to be relevant in the wake of this #Covid19 #Plandemic.

    2. Rowan Gaither (Pres. of Ford Foundation): the Tax-Exempt Foundations operated under directives from the OSS (forerunner of the CIA) & the White House to: “use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.”

    3. 1908-09: The Carnegie Endowment begins ops & resolves to get control of the State Department in order to get the United States into a war because: ‘There is no known better means than war to alter the life of an entire people.’ Shortly thereafter, the US gets embroiled in WWI.

    4. 1914-The Endowment writes Pres Wilson “cautioning him to see the war doesn’t end too quickly.” After the war, the Endowment colludes w/the Rockefeller Foundation to control & alter the teaching of American History in order to prevent a return to the Old Normal. Sound familiar?

    5. The CE, Rockefellers & Guggenheim Foundation collude & create a new stable of historians to alter American History (in order to solidify the “New Normal” after WWI). They found the AHA & determine the future is “COLLECTIVISM administered by Characteristic American Efficiency.”

    6. The Reece Committee, under the investigative prowess of Norman Dodd, got too close to the truth of the Tax-Exempt conspiracies, & wouldn’t you know–it was the GOP that derailed it & attacked Dodd! Their weapon of choice? They accused him of devotion to ANTISEMITISM!

    7. Tax-exempt foundations push collectivism b/c it helps them consolidate power, control & wealth. New entrants like the Gill & Leminda Bates Foundation operate on the same principles, for the same goals. Together, these foundations are a fundamental component of the #DeepState.

      3. preservation of the Constitution allows citizens their due freedoms and privileges to take care of their own concerns, privately or via voluntary, collective arrangement. There is enough compassion in a free society to take care of those who truly need it. If there are “insufficient resources” to solve a problem, then there are insufficient resources when government attempts to solve it, too. In fact, there will be fewer resources when govt takes control, as it has no innate ability to be more efficient than free people.

    All day a drone hovered at 800 or so feet. Interrupted my call to nature with my dog.

    Long story short, about 25 armed officers stormed the property looking for something.

    Not finding what they were looking for they confiscated a couple antique firearms for not being registered. This property was a pony express stop in the late 1800’s and I don’t think there was any registration for guns back then.

    These were Santa Cruz police and we don’t live in Santa Cruz. They didn’t like my MAGA cap. It was hard not to laugh at the few officers wearing masks outside in the sunshine.

    I wrote this in reply to someone above who said they were verbally accosted by a ‘Karen’ on the street walking their dog, for not wearing a mask. For some reason my post did not show up. Took me long enough to think it through so don’t want to waste my effort, so I’ll just post it as a stand alone. My apologies if it shows up twice.

    Anyway, I have been thinking about what my response would be if confronted by a mask Nazi..

    I was designated an essential worker at my place of employment. Fortunately, I work mostly by myself or with 2 or 3 other ‘essentials’. Weeks ago, I was told I had to wear a mask. When I refused, I was called arrogant and selfish. Had to hang up on my boss before telling him I’m close enough to retirement that (diplomatically) I’d retire tomorrow if he didn’t respect my right not to wear one. Anyway, I’m still employed.

    So, I was thinking about what I might say if confronted by the same accusations elsewhere. I could do nothing at all. Or I could lash out with a “go hide in your basement comment”. Or I can explain to them using language they understand, that I am pro-choice and I choose not to wear one. I can explain that we are a country founded on timeless unalienable principles, individual liberty being one of the most fundamental of them. We both have the right to make our own decisions. If you feel in danger from the WuFlu then by all means wear a mask. I think I have a higher probability of being struck by lightening. If you believe I am being socially irresponsible, then I believe you hate freedom and are a bully. If you want a dictatorial nanny government to tell you how to behave, what you can say, whether you can keep your businesses open, where you can or can’t go or what you can and can’t do or what you have to wear … then you are living in the wrong country.

          Only about 25% of the retrievals I make are those that have been mistakenly identified as “spam”. The greater number are those that land up in the trash bin because they receive a “false positive” with something on our blacklist. The longer the blacklist, the greater the chances are that people will inadvertently use a word(s) or have something in their email address that matches up. It’s all in the odds.

          Would love to be able to shorten our blacklist, however, there are lots of “unfriendlies” that would wreak havoc in the Treehouse if given the opportunity. 😦

      It’s stressful just thinking about how to reply (for me), but I decided I would just smile and say a phrase they love….”You do you and I’ll do me.” If they were to continue and call me selfish or say I’m being irresponsible, etc., I’d just say “Research is your friend.” and keep walking. I figure there is NO convincing sheeple.

      If I have to go to a doctor or get my hair or nails done, I will wear a mask, but that’s my limit.

        I was actually at my doctor this past week and masks are required in her office. However, when she came into the exam room to see me, I didn’t have it on and she did not ask me to put it on. I’ll wear it for the hairdresser.

      I live in a Red area, blues are here, but in the minority.
      Went out shopping yesterday, made several stops.

      I saw people WITH masks, and people without. Encounter NO place of business requiring customers to wear masks, though some reqired EMPLOYEES to wear them (McDonalds).

      I saw no one being harrased, in ANY way, either for WEARING a mask, or for NOT wearing a mask.

      Reminds me of an experiment a high school kid did, during the 2016 campaign.

      Took a 1’x3′ piece of Cardboard, wrote “Trump” on one side, “Sanders” on the other; nothing else.

      Went and stood on a streetcorner, and had 2 friends stand on other corners of the same intersection, and film responces with their cell phones.

      Held the sign for 20 minutes, with “Trump” showing, then 20 minutes with “Sanders” showing.

      When Sanders was showing, he got some horn honks, thumbs up and generally positive or neutral responces, WITH NOT ONE NEGATIVE RESPONCE.

      However, when he held up “Trump” side out, while he got 1-2 positive thumbs up, he got numerous negative, hostile responces, including one adult man who accosted him, and was trying to RIP the sign out of his hand, until he showed him the other side, pointed out his two friends filming, and explained it was a school project.

      Anyway, in Blue areas, its seems face diapers are a big deal, an “ISSUE” invariably tied to Government mandates, by both ‘sides’, and so a point of contention.

      In Red areas, or at least where I am, it is seen as a matter of personal choice, which is logical, according to CDC guidelines, and what PDJT has been saying.

      I joke that people wear face diapers, cause they are either full of sh*t, or talk sh*t, and most laugh, especially when I tell them I SHOULD be wearing one, on BOTH counts.

      Oh, I see signs saying limit of people in store at one time, but no one counting, or preventing people from going in.

      There ARE marks on the floor, establishing 6′ distance for lines to register, but again no one enforcing,…and cashiers have face guards (Plexiglas shields) at registers.

      McDonalds has no sit inside, but you can GO inside to order. SOME restaurants ARE seating customers.

        Dutchman, you bring up an interesting distinction which I have noticed too. Conservatives seem to be way more tolerant of Liberal’s opinions (at least publicly), than the other way around. Perhaps it is because we believe that in America, one has the right to have, and express; a different opinion. At this point I shudder to think what this country will become if Liberals get in power again.

    Eureka! The Left Discovers Tenth Amendment
    By IRA STOLL, Special to the Sun | May 25, 2020

    Amid the grim coronavirus news of death and unemployment, at least there is the comic relief of the left embracing the Tenth Amendment. Suddenly trendy is the provision of the Bill of Rights that “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

    GOP Sues California Governor Gavin Newsom

    ASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, and the California Republican Party have filed a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom seeking to have his recent executive order redesigning California’s entire election system declared unlawful.

    “Democrats have seized on the coronavirus pandemic to push their long-sought partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom’s executive order to send absentee ballots to inactive voters without necessary ballot safeguards is an illegal and brazen power grab ahead of November’s elections.”

    California’s election system is already burdened with serious issues. The disastrous Motor Voter program arbitrarily changed voter registration for thousands casting doubt on the integrity and accuracy of our voter rolls. Using this pandemic in a unilateral power grab to change our election laws with an executive order will further put the integrity of our elections into question. The California Republican Party will fight back at every step to ensure a secure election, as Californians rightfully expect and deserve.” – CAGOP Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson

          Now, because the winters are long and the summer/boating season is very short, I can just about guarantee you that most will absolutely ignore any edicts in order to enjoy the few months of available warm weather.

He believes politicians live by other rules……I dont believe he was part of the coup…hell he is so ignorant he probably wouldn’t believe the corruption if it smacked him in the face.

Tuberville has never held office there. He says it may be too late the damage is done. That is a true realistic statement. Hospitals and schools are in dire straits because of the illegals. He is telling the truth. Doug Jones crowd is exploiting what Tuberville said. I would not be surprised if Sessions is not a spoiler at this point to allow Jones to go back in. After all he did stand by and watch the Trump Family potentially being destroyed and did nothing. He did not even utter a word against it. I hope Tuberville sends him off to the sunset. Sessions is establishment nothing more.

    Former CBS president

    Calls the President Mr Trump throughout.

    Not sure of his purpose in penning this “article”.

    “About **35 years ago** I was sitting at lunch next to Jeane Kirkpatrick, a onetime Democrat who became a foreign-policy adviser to President Reagan and later U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She was lamenting what she called the “liberal leaning” media. As the president of CBS News, I assured her it was only a “liberal tilt” and could be corrected.

    **“You don’t understand,“ she scolded. “It’s too late.”**

    “Dan Abrams, ABC’s chief legal-affairs anchor and founder of the website Mediaite, has a novel but valuable idea for the media—candor. Speaking to the matter at February’s Rancho Mirage Writers Festival, Mr. Abrams said “I think the first thing that would help . . . is to admit . . . that the people in the media are left of center.”

    It would be delightful if a publisher, an editor, a reporter, would just say: Yes, I am left of center! I’m proud of it. I think our reporting is accurate. It best serves the public. And the credibility of the media. So there!

    Publications open about their bias might feel freer to focus on the specifics: story selection, presentation, facts, fairness, balance. Not devoid of subtlety for sure, but manageable.

    Journalism affects social cohesion. Convinced of its role and its legitimacy, however, the media doesn’t seem to much care. And the other side can certainly enjoy throwing rotten tomatoes at distant targets.

    But America won’t reunite until far more people can look at a news story in print or on the screen and, of all things, believe it.”

    Mr. Sauter was president of CBS News, 1982-83 and 1986.
