Lancet Retracts Medical Study Critical of Hydroxychloroquine – Study Results Were Designed for Political Purposes…

The medical journal Lancet has now fully retracted their prior claimed “scientific study” against the use of Hodroxychloroquine.  The Lancet study was quickly and purposefully used by all major media outlets to attack President Trump for his advocacy of the drug as an effective treatment for the COVID-19 virus.

It now appears the purpose of the fraudulent “scientific study”, conducted by a sketchy outfit called Surgisphere – who mysteriously appeared only after President Trump advocated for the treatment, was to weaponize medicine for political purposes.

After they were exposed for their role in pushing manipulated data, Lancet has now fully retracted their study in an attempt to retain credibility.

LANCET – Today, three of the authors of the paper, “Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”, have retracted their study.

They were unable to complete an independent audit of the data underpinning their analysis. As a result, they have concluded that they “can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources.” (continue reading)

Don’t expect the media to announce the Lancet retraction, or apologize for their role in pushing the political narrative around it.   Journalism is dead as the entire profession has now been exposed as nothing more than narrative engineers.

The Wuhan Virus was exploited for maximum economic damage and political value by an international group of operatives who needed to stop the rise of economic nationalism.

There are trillions at stake, and the desperate need to retain control of global economics by a small group of institutional elites in the banking, trade and finance sector; led to the virus being exploited.  The resulting global crisis is based on their hoax.

    Is anything a crime when it involves leftists? Is there ever any consequences for these kind of outrageous stunts?

    How many people died in order for the left to gain another attack on President Trump?

    How can a just society allow it’s medical community to outright lie and endanger peoples lives in order to score political points?

    Mind boggling

      The matter of how many people died because of the politics of “proving” President Trump wrong, when he found out about it’s use and said it could be effective, is just astounding.

      Frankly, I think any who did not have access to this treatment, or rather their families, should be able to sue this company for their lies. This was a purposeful political action. It cost people a chance for a treatment which might have helped.

      This isn’t just one-ups-manshiip, it is plain evil. It allowed people to suffer and get worse because at that time there was no real handle on alternative treatments that were working.

      This was not “the medical community” lying to score political points. It was four MDs of which one (S Desai, at Surgisphere) was responsible for collecting the data for the paper. Three of the authors (presumably not Desai) asked for retraction of the paper after concerns were raised; they may be innocent of intentionally misleading anyone. Regardless, one or three doctors do not characterize the medical community at large, any more than Waksman or Summerlin, or Darcy (all frauds) have in the past.

          Certainly a civil tort. There are thousands of clinicians around the world reporting success with HCQs in the appropriate setting : ie to mitigate the viral replication phase.
          Many many expert witnesses will testify as to the effectiveness of HCQs in the early stages of the disease. They will also teach a jury of the desperate need for anecdotal clinician input in time of rapid escalation of a disease such as a viral pandemic. The evidence is now overwhelming and even the American Journal of Epidemiology has chimed in supporting early treatment. https://academic.oup.com/aje/advance-article/doi/10.1093/aje/kwaa093/5847586
          Those denied this life saving medicine who then went on to suffer worse symptoms or death will have a valid tort claim in a class action suit. There are thousands of victims created by this purely political attack on an excellent safe, cheap life saving medication.
          Remember, this will be civil. In front of a jury. Lots of evidence available to show life saving usefulness. Lots of ‘expert witnesses” The “other side” has no defense and will be at risk for exposure of political ideology driving the resistance .

    I spent 15 years studying the Global Warming Hoax (from about 2000)
    I can tell you that this type of fraud (that is what it is) was/is very common among climate papers.

    Whenever a decent sceptical paper would be published (usually in lesser known journals because the main ones refused to publish sceptical papers) it would be followed by a counter paper put together in short few weeks and usually co-authored by up to a dozen well known “climate scientists” like Michael Mann, Ben Santer etc (they reinforce how important their paper is by the numbers of scientists signing on to it as co-authors).

    Also, there would be a slew of papers published just a few months before the infamous Un IPCC Climate Assessment Reports are due to be released. ALL OF THEM alarmist about the climate.

    Peer Review is touted as the bees knees of scientific publishing, but in reality is nothing but “Pal Review”.
    Some studies have exposed this scam by showing that up to 80% of scientific papers published have serious deficiencies and faults with them despite peer review.

    Put simply, DO NOT BELIEVE ANY SCIENTIFIC CLAIM and you’ll be right 80% off the time.

      More evidence today of suspect climate change agenda-driven bias in our academic institutions.

      A headline in the Daily Mail: “Mangrove trees won’t survive sea-level rise by 2050 unless greenhouse gas emissions are reduced” is based on a report published today in the respected Science Journal.

      The obvious question is how have the mangroves survived for 100 million years? The first mangrove fossils appear around the Tethys Sea from the Late Cretaceous period – 100 million years ago. Sea level changes were large (more than 25 meters) and rapid during this period. The answer: mangroves are adapted to inter-tidal zones.

    Tried to read up on Richard Horton who is editor-in-chief of “The Lancet”, but had to stop at the end of the first sentence of the Wiki page, “…a United Kingdom–based medical journal”.

    Tells me all I need to know right there, Christopher Steele and Robert Hannigan 2.0., it would be a waste of time to even post the link. It’s easy to find on Google.

    Easy for US Libs to take action off of completely fabricated information from the UK Libs because it’s almost impossible to hold them accountable, which in this case ‘could’ have saved many people a lot of pain and suffering and possibly even prevented a portion of the infected from even getting infected.

    Also, if I remember right, wasn’t it some UK-Lib-Climate-Change-freak that was responsible for the faulty forecasting model that caused almost the entire world to shut down their economies and lock down the population ?

    But given what we know about how the Left works, you have to assume that since Libs everywhere were screaming not to take it, you have to believe it was effective in some way.

    If taking hydroxychloroquine was truly dangerous for President Trump and raised his chances of having health issues as a result, they would have kept their mouths shut and just smiled because that’s the kind of sicko’s they are.

Normal people, on the other hand, don’t wish to disrupt their reasonable contentedness to mess with other people’s business. So, we live in a world now where every corner will be populated with busy-bodies, who affect every school, office, association,…and journal.

      They could be a 1/3rd minority, but they’re embedded everywhere. It’s like ink in water.

    The antiviral properties of vitamin D and C have been subjected to this same medical BS process with literally hundreds of misrun and distorted reports on trials for decades. This time with WuFlu, a lot of (young) doctors died short on C and D. (and zinc and flavonoids) Oopsie.

    Only lately have the endrocrinologists revolted part ways, for more adequate vitamin D levels. ICU care has turned a little ways for a litlle IV vitamin C.

    For the real vitamin C stories, read about Dr Fred Klenner’s IV vitamin C work in Dr. Thomas Levy’s book, Curing the Incurable (mostly pathogens and toxics), and Robert F Cathcart’s bowel tolerance protocol for useful vitamin C dosing orally.

    Yes, how many people have died of Covid-19 because governors and government agencies banned the use of Hydroxychloroquine or severely limited its use in the treatment of Covid-19?

    And, how many have died because mayors and governors will not effectively utilize the National Guard or their police forces to protect their citizens and property?

    And, who delayed reopening their states for business on long-disproven or questionable data, but now let rioters, looters and anarchists run wild, destroying those very businesses just as they were preparing to reopen?

    All to defeat President Trump.

    We need to posit these three questions every time we interact with anyone – leftists, voters on the fence, uninformed and misinformed voters, politicians, the media, pollsters, people we come into contact with in everyday life, strangers – whatever gets the word out and makes people think.

    “On May 28, 2020, dozens of eminent “clinicians, medical researchers, statisticians and ethicists from [universities and medical centers] across the world” addressed an open letter to the study’s authors and the editor of the Lancet in which they raised “both methodological and data integrity concerns.”

    One f the most important things that we can do is to be current events junkies. By doing so, we try to stay on top of Covid-19 & most important, learning if there might be something else, even more potent than Covid-19!

    Dr Jerome Corsi Phd (Corsination.com) has an e-book out talking about Covid-20, how the Russians already have it ready for RELEASE (yes against us!) & 2 important takeaways:

    1. Covid-20 will take far less time to work/detroy a person’s body. And NO ONE is immune from it (Young, middle-age, elderly)

    2. HCQ used as a preventive already in one’s body offers the strong possibility that a person infected with Covid-20 can SURVIVE it.

    I have been gathering articles about HCQ & have already learned that:

    Since 2018, Russia has been producing AND stockpiling HCQ for its own population!
    Costa Rica actively utilizes HCQ in treating its citizens (successfully by the way) for Covid-19,

    A Yale epedimiologist is quoted as stating that “HCQ should be widely available & promoted IMMEDIATELY” (as a standard treatment!

    And, oh let us not forget how Little Turd Dr Fauci has been waging war against HCQ. And why not as the stories are already out there that Fauci has patents out there working with BIG PHARMA & looking for a BIG PAYDAY if 1 of his pharma companies comes up with a CURE from which tons of $$$ can be made!!! Any yeah, Birx & Redfield are up to their eyeballs in corrupt pharma connections too.

    Recall that the Little Turd has parading this now debunked study around as definitive proof positive that HCQ was a big -0- in Covid-19 treatment DESPITE all of the DOCTORS who enthusiastically reported in on the SUCCESS they were having with HCQ!!

    We are in the process of passing thru an enormously high hurdle that has shut our country down for the 1st time in its history. Do not think for 1 minute that Russia & China haven’t been avidly studying us & taking notes on how this crippled us.

    Is there something worse that is in waiting (e.g.for the riots to run their course thru this summer) for us? Methinks & I fear that the answer is yes. Please think about it, research it, & formulate your own conclusions so you can take corrective action.

      It took me a while to realise that this is about more than Covid-19. If the pessimists are right, and there are more dangerous man-made pathogens in preparation, then if these pathogens are further developments of Covd-19 it is highly likely that they can be resisted using HCQ, since vulnerability to the presence of zinc in cells appears to be e generic characteristic of this type of virus. It follows that there is a great deal still invested in keeping knowledge about HCQ, and supplies of the the drug itself, as far away from the general public as possible.

    The first part of this article is about COVID 19, my favorite part is:

    “The new Stanford University antibody study “data indicates a fatality rate of infection from the coronavirus of between 0.1 and 0.2 percent, a risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates, which were 20 to 30 times higher and motivated isolation policies.”

    The saddest part is the damage done to Americans that is not talked about enough:

    ……..former Stanford University’s M.D, Dr. Scott Atlas. “I think one thing that’s not somehow receiving attention is the CDC just came out with their fatality rates,” The Hoover Institution’s Dr. Atlas said to Fox News. “And lo and behold, they verify what people have been saying for over a month now, including my Stanford epidemiology colleagues and everyone else in the world who’s done this analysis — and that is that the infection fatality rate is less than one-tenth of the original estimate.”

    “The [broad shutdown/isolation] policy itself is killing people. I mean, I think everyone’s heard about 650,000 people on cancer, chemo, half of whom didn’t come in. Two thirds of cancer screenings didn’t come in. 40 percent of stroke patients urgently needing care didn’t come in,” Atlas said. “And now we have over half the people, children in the United States not getting vaccinations. This is really what [Fauci] said was irreparable harm.”

    “And I and my colleagues from other institutions have calculated the cost of the lockdown in terms of lives lost,” Atlas stated on 5.23.2020. “Every month is about equal to the entire cost of lives lost during the COVID infection itself. This is a tragic, misguided public policy to extend this lockdown, whether or not it was justifiable in the beginning.”

Experts have said hundreds of thousands of contact tracers will be needed nationwide to identify those who have been infected with the coronavirus and those with whom the infected person has come into contact.”

    I would feel bad about writing such a long aggressive post as this in that case. But it seems very unlikely. It is dreadful to think that the most likely explanation of what we’re seeing is simply that the data are fabricated, in what is possibly a criminal conspiracy, and the science publication process is so broken that it gets through. It just seems to me very likely that this explanation is the correct one.

    Very concerning what is happening to the medical profession, medical journals, and all things medical. To understand the divers for this all you need to know are these facts. The US economy and citizens of the united states spend 20% of our GDP (22 Trillion — remember there are Trillions at Stake) whichis ~ 4 Trillion on health care. We give that money, mostly to Medicare (elderly) (the largest business in the world) and Medicaid (you know for our poor and disabled and children) and to private insurance companies through our employers (much arbitytrated by unions).

    So 4 Trillion is sitting in the hands of insurance companies. Their profit depends on not spending it. The most powerful lobby groups (K street who writes laws) are Chamber of Commerce, Insurance industry, Large hospital corporations, Pharmaceuticals, and the AMA (which has been infiltrated with progressive leftist groups and no longer represents physicians or patients).

    Think about that — we give our health care money to companies whose profit depends on not spending it — supervised by a government who gets most of its money and lobbying influence and law writing from those same companies. It is no surprise that insurance companies now have all the power of decisionmaking, and all the data.

    The professionals we train to deliver the care — Physicians and nurses — no longer have power to decide. They are controlled by pay structure, red tape, faux quality programs designed to increase their power. And now most physicians are owned by large hospital systems, insurance companies, or companies owned by insurance companies.

    Areas of research depend on funding. Funding of research is decided on by the government, Universities (another government driven enterprise), and private investments.

    That makes Surgisphere’s Only two Medical studies they have ever had, Retracted Fully. They are definitely trying to beat the MSM, but I seriously doubt they will ever get another Customer. But then, thats the main purpose. As said in the article it looks like this Company was created Quickly in order to create more misinformation using the fake data in their fancy Database. Created just to stop Trump, and continue to push the fear & panic. Personally, ZI am begining to think this Virus was pushed by fear and panic with lies and misinfornation to boot. Thinking something else caused these illnesses. Some are saying 5G 60Hrz, which is what they were suggesting is what caused those Chinese , in WuZHan, to collapse in the streets. WuHan recently was fitted with brand new HuaWei 5G technology. The same Technology that the U.S. banned, and was supposed to have been removed in the U.S.
    Wana bet some people stepped in and left just certain areas in the U.S. with the WuHan 5G Weaponized and spying Technology in place, just for this outbreak? Just a wild idea. Would have to dig much deeper for some proof on that one. Its out there for WuHan, I read it. But proving someone left some of that HuaWei 5G in place after it had been banned in the U.S. that would be very tough to find or prove at this point. Unless it is still in place now.
    To msny other things that need to be researched lately. Maybe someone in NY or NJ could check the 5G in the areas that got hit hardest, to see if HuaWei tech is still in place. I am not near that area.
