Defeat the Mandates

 

There was a well-attended rally on the Washington DC mall against the vaccine mandates this weekend. It featured a nice lineup of speakers, including Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA vaccine technology, with the wonderful comedian JP Sears as MC for the event.

Of course, the scant media coverage is desperately trying to call it simply “anti-vax,” which is disappointing but not surprising. A feature for many speakers was the need for freedom in the face of risk, transparency, honest debate, and a commitment to truth, tolerance, and love for people.

Remember: if you can’t patent it, no one cares. Melatonin is 4x more potent, as a free radical scavenger, than antioxidants such as (vitamin C or E)! Plus for very molecule of melatonin 10 free radicals are scavenged. This is a massive antioxidant load that Melatonin takes on! Melatonin doesn’t stop there, it also transforms […]

According to NROnline today: “Data collected between August 2021 and January 5, 2022 show a third dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines was 90 percent effective at preventing hospitalization and 82 percent effective in preventing a trip to the emergency room or urgent care.” Preview Open

Join Jim and Greg as they react to independent voters turning very negative on President Biden. They also highlight a Michigan audit showing many more nursing home deaths from COVID than Gov. Gretchen Whitmer previously admitted. And they sense Russian military activity could be coming soon in Ukraine as the U.S. considers evacuating the family members of American diplomats there.

Alberta public health has been caught playing statistical games with COVID vaccination statistics.  This won’t do much for building trust. https://metatron.substack.com/p/alberta-just-inadvertently-confessed?utm_source=substack&utm_campaign=post_embed&utm_medium=web Preview Open

Our study is the first to combine HCQ, AZM, and zinc with high-dose intravenous vitamin C therapy, resulting in the total recovery of 99.6% of participants, whereby IVC contributed to a significantly quicker recovery and discharge from the hospital. The treatment protocol was highly tolerable and did not cause any cardiac complications. Importantly, our study […]

Furthermore, the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have a “social justice” orientation. That, combined with some recent legislative changes in Canada, claiming to outlaw so-called “conversion therapy” (but really making it exceedingly risky for clinicians to do anything […]

Masks For Thee But Not For Me: Cruise Ship Edition

 

Readers may recall the jarring images of maskless political elites such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Carolyn Maloney attending last year’s Met Gala as The Help stood by dutifully breathing up against pieces of fabric.

Some in the cruise and cruise-commentary world, far from seeking an escape from the reinforcement of such class divisions, find comfort in embracing them. Cynical as I am, I was surprised to learn that a cruise line would require a fully-vaccinated crew member to don a mask while working alone on the open decks of a ship even as passengers a few feet away enjoy the ineffable feeling of their lungs filling with fresh ocean air.

But such, it seems is the case.

Tale of Tamiflu

 

Practicing pharmacy over the years you start to get a feel for what works and what does not.  Feedback is constant both welcome and otherwise.  Some drugs just seem to work for a wide range of people. Amoxicillin, cefdinir, and azithromycin are just a few of our greatest hits from behind the counter.  On the opposite side, we have drugs that despite approval and mass marketing never really seemed to take off.  Tamiflu is a great example.

It was hailed and marketed as a cure for the flu and there was a point due to demand, I would spend an inordinate amount of time opening capsules to compound it into a suspension for younger patients when the commercial product would go on backorder.  Despite dispensing a lot of it, the rave reviews never seemed to follow and it would be prescribed less and less.  The most loaded question in healthcare is how was your day and I recall once quipping to another pharmacist “just another day padding Roche’s bottom line, how about you?”

Supreme Imbecility on CMS Vax Mandate

 

Government statistics show that 90.5% of US citizens from age 65 to 74 have been fully vaccinated, and 100% have received at least one shot. For citizens 74 and above, 99.05% have had at least one shot and 84% are fully vaccinated. So, if those who have had one shot get the second shot within the month, then by mid-February close to 100% of Medicare beneficiaries will have been fully vaccinated. Yet the Supreme Court agrees that CMS should mandate vaccines for employees of institutions that receive Medicare funds,  at the penalty of losing their jobs, in order to protect the Medicare beneficiaries admitted to those facilities. If all of the Medicare beneficiaries are vaccinated, how is this not a complete admission that the vaccines don’t work?

Clearly, the vaccines do not prevent infection with or transmission of COVID. So, vaccinating employees of these institutions will not protect the Medicare beneficiaries admitted to those facilities. Some evidence (like the huge spike in COVID infections on Gibralter as soon as the population had been fully vaccinated, whereas before vaccination, COVID cases were very few on the island) suggests that vaccination enhances the risk of infection and transmission.

Because they’re impersonating me in their satire. U.S.—After several successful rounds of trials and a quick overnight approval from the FDA, Pfizer proudly announced they will be releasing a brand new, never-before-seen COVID drug “Pfivermectin.” Preview Open
