Thursday News Roundup: Grim Milestone for the Biden Handlers and Portland Riots Expand to Another City

Yes, well, these are people who have no conscience, so… – John Solomon reports on a Yale professor, Harvey Risch, who calls the Democrat/media demonization of the safe, effective and inexpensive drug Hydroxychloroquine “unconscionable.”

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

Risch draws a distinction between two stages of the illness, noting that while the treatment will likely work quickly during the first stage, it is not effective in helping people who have advanced to the more serious second stage.

“At the first stage, it is a flu-like illness. That illness will not kill you. If you are a high-risk patient and begin treatment immediately, you will almost certainly be done with it in a few days. When not treated, high-risk patients may progress. The virus then causes severe pneumonia and attacks many organs, including the heart. In this second stage, hydroxychloroquine is not effective,” he explains in a Washington Examiner opinion piece.

Risch says that people in the high-risk category should be provided treatment even before they receive the results of their coronavirus test.

“The second thing to know is that most low-risk patients survive without treatment. Low risk means you are under age 60 and have no chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, have no past treatment for cancer, are not immunocompromised, etc. High risk means you are over 60 or you have one or more of those chronic conditions. High-risk patients need immediate treatment when they first show symptoms,” he said.

“It is a serious and unconscionable mistake that the FDA has used inpatient data to block emergency use petitions for outpatient use. Further, already back in March, the FDA approved the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine for hospitalized patients, for whom it is demonstrably less effective than for outpatients,” he said. “If hydroxychloroquine satisfied the FDA criteria for emergency inpatient use in March, it should more than satisfy those criteria now for outpatient use, where the evidence is much stronger.”

[End]

Make no mistake about this: The media and Democrats who have conducted this campaign to deny COVID-19 patients access to this safe and effective drug have the deaths of thousands of Americans on their hands. There should be consequences, but of course there won’t be.

The standard Democrat playbook is now fully engaged. – That grim milestone – as the media like to call everything related to COVID-19 – was reached yesterday with this tweet from Crazy Uncle Quid Pro Creepy Farty China Joe Biden’s handlers:

So, we’re still going with the “very fine people” lie, even after CNN and the New York Times debunked it? Holy crap.

Look, every four years you can count on the Democrats to roll out a series of standard scare tactics:

– Scare the old folks about how Republicans are gonna do away with Social Security and Medicare;

– Scare the poor folks about the evil GOP plot to eliminate welfare, subsidized housing and Medicaid;

– Scare college students about the evil GOP plot to make them pay back their student loans (this one is actually true);

– Scare Hispanic folks about the GOP plan to halt illegal immigration, which also happens to be true, and which a rising share of Hispanic voters support;

– and Scare the Black folks about the evil GOP plot to re-constitute the Ku Klux Klan even though the KKK was the creation of the Democrat Party.

It’s like clockwork – you can literally set your IPhone alarm to it.

Despicable people, these Democrats.

Speaking of despicable people, how about those who infest the corrupt news media? – The Washington Examiner reports on how the major communist news outlets reported – or didn’t report – on the murder of a 5 year-old kid in cold blood in North Carolina that I detailed yesterday:

ZERO results. And it is not a surprise, because we all know by now that these media outlets simply do not cover any story that does not fit the DNC-dictated daily narrative.

Meanwhile, in Portland… – The Democrat Party-sponsored riots continued for their 77th straight night as the rioters steadily expand their field of operations.

As always is the case, the only reason we know the truth about what is taking place in Portland is the intrepid reporting by real journalist Andy Ngo:

And now the chaos and violence has extended outside of Portland into Bend, Oregon:

Madness. These people hate you and want you dead. They will not stop until they are stopped. It really is that simple.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Americans Must Stop Listening to Fauci and Birx

The greatest deflection tactic in American history took place on Thursday. – Here it is:

Note the time stamp on that tweet. It was put out by the President 16 minutes after the Trump Administration released the GDP numbers for the second quarter. Those numbers weren’t good; but then, no one expected them to be good, given that the second quarter was when our country went literally insane on the catastrophic advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci (more on that little menace to society in a moment).

President Trump obviously didn’t want to see the corrupt new media mis-reporting on those numbers as the lead story for the next several days, so he put out the single most magnificent troll tweet since Twitter was invented. Every corrupt reporter and editor and talking head and idiot Democrat/communist in America immediately exploded with rage and hysteria, which was exactly the reaction the President had wanted to achieve. Coverage of the down economic quarter pretty much evaporated.

Late in the day, his goal achieved, the President explained the tweet by basically saying, ‘hey, I was just asking a question.’

Hilarious. He’s the cat-person with a laser pointer; the corrupt news media is his cat.

Birx and Fauci roll out their next tool to control your behavior. – In a TV interview on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci told the corrupt talking head that “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it.” Thus does the media campaign to pressure governors and the President to require goggles or eye shields begin.

On Thursday, the Queen of Scarves, Dr. Deborah Birx, joined in the brainwashing campaign, saying “Here’s the thing about the face shield in addition to the mask: the mask is to protect others. The thing about the face shields – we think that that could protect the individuals and that it would decrease the ability for them to touch their eyes and spread [the] virus as well as those droplets coming towards them.”

Remember: These are the very same two “doctors” who just 3 months ago were telling you not to wear masks because they are ineffective at stopping the spread of a virus and are actually harmful to your own health. But now, masks have somehow become the key to everything. You must wear them, not only when you enter a store or restaurant or gym or any other public facility, but anytime you freaking go outside.

It’s not about protecting your heath, it’s about controlling your behavior.  These are not just random remarks by these two “doctors”: They are intentional, calculated statements designed to start another media-led panic. Why? Because the “case” numbers related to the China virus are once again falling.

You are the frog, and they are boiling you.

Speaking of media-led panic campaigns… – The corrupt national media will refuse to report it, but their panic campaign to demonize HydroxyChloroquine took another big hit on Thursday.

From a piece at the Federalist:

The Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal that published a 96,000-subject study indicting the efficacy of the politically controversial hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has retracted its findings that the malaria medication led to an increased risk of death.

“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,” The Lancet said in a retraction statement Thursday. “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.”

“We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,” the authors of the study wrote.

The study was first published in May and was the largest ever conducted analyzing the impacts of hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump was reported to be taking the medication as a precautionary measure following possible exposure to the virus.

Legacy media meanwhile, with its animus for Trump, used the study to attack the president and his physician for taking a medication that had anecdotally shown potential promise in treatment of infection while posing few risks. Trump had previously touted the possible benefits of the medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use during press briefings to reporters who pinned the death of an uninfected man who drank fish tank cleaner outside of medical guidance on the president.

[End]

Let’s all remember that Dr. Fauci himself – who praised HCQ’s effectiveness as a treatment for viral infections in 2005, and said he would himself prescribe it in early March – used this specific study as a means of bashing HCQ:

The man is a menace. He is a menace to our entire society. He has used his position and the media idolatry towards him as a platform to lie to us repeatedly and with malice aforethought. We will never be able to return to normalcy as a society until we shun him and Dr. Birx and reassert our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Speaking of HCQ… – Fauci, Birx and their evil media minions took another big blow where HCQ is concerned yesterday. In Ohio, the Pharmacy Board withdrew a rule banning the use of HCQ, which was entirely motivated by political hatred towards President Trump. Why are the rescinding it? Because of complaints from actual, real doctors who want to prescribe it to their patients and are having great success with it as a treatment for COVID-19.

From a story at the Butler County Journal News in Ohio:

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy withdrew a rule preventing hydroxychloroquine from being sold in the state as treatment for coronavrius after Gov. Mike DeWine called for the board to halt the rule.

As a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Gov. DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has withdrawn proposed rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code,” read a statement from the board. “Therefore, prohibitions on the prescribing of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in Ohio for the treatment of COVID-19 will not take effect at this time.”

The board will reexamine the rule with the help of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts and stakeholders to determine the next step.

The rule, which was scheduled to go into effect today, would prohibit pharmacies from selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for coronavirus unless the use is approved by the board’s executive director. The rule would also void all previous approvals of the drug.

The governor said in a statement Thursday that he agreed with Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision to treat the virus with hydroxychloroquine should be between a doctor and patient.

[End]

Again, we must as a people ignore the edicts of Fauci and Birx, who are nothing more than tools of people who hate you and would rather you were dead. We can never return to normalcy until we shun them as the menaces to our society that they truly are.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: All Democrats are Complicit in These Violent Riots, and Yale Doc Endorses HCQ

How in the world did this make its way into Newsweek? – That was my first reaction yesterday when an MD friend forwarded this story, endorsing the use of hydroxychloroquine (HQC) to me. Newsweek is part of the “resistance,” after all, and like CNN, the New York Times all the rest has completely tossed all prior concerns about “journalistic ethics” to the wind in the quest to rid the world of the Bad Orange Man in the White House.

Yet, here it is, a piece authored by Harvey A. Risch, MD, PHD, Professor of Epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, in all its glory.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It | Opinion

As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.

I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine. When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.

On May 27, I published an article in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE) entitled, “Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk COVID-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.” That article, published in the world’s leading epidemiology journal, analyzed five studies, demonstrating clear-cut and significant benefits to treated patients, plus other very large studies that showed the medication safety.

How much clearer does the case in favor of this medication regime need to be made, how many more Americans must needlessly die before the corrupt U.S. news media stops demonizing it and pressuring doctors and pharmacists to refuse to use it? Because, make no mistake about this: Hundreds, probably thousand of Americans are dead today due to the despicable politicizing of this medicine by the Democrats and their media toadies. They have committed an outright atrocity.

POLL PANIC UPDATE – 32 years ago Sunday, a Gallup poll showed Mike Dukakis leading George HW Bush by a margin of 55 to 38. That’s right: Dukakis supposedly had a massive, insurmountable 17-point lead over the sitting Vice President.

On Election Day in November, Poppy Bush received 53.4% of the popular vote to 45.6% for Dukakis. Bush won a whopping 426 Electoral votes to just 111 for the little fraud from Massachusetts.

This concludes your POLL PANIC UPDATE for today.

And now for a moment of national insanity, brought to you by Major League Baseball. – You seriously just could never make this stuff up, folks, never in a million years:

Holy crap.

Coming soon to a city near you? – Very possibly unless President Trump ramps up the federal government’s response to the Democrat sponsored rioting happening across the country. In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s all starting to grow more intense again, because the Democrats see the COVID-19 “case” surge beginning to fade and lose impact on keeping the public frightened.

It’s also growing more violent:

59 police officers injured, and there is not a word of outrage expressed by Seattle’s despicable Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan. Not a word of coverage from any of the network news operations, not a word from CNN or MSNBC, not a word in the New York Times or the Washington Post.

This is an armed insurrection paid for and sponsored by the Democrat Party for political reasons. As I’ve been telling you for more than two years now, the Democrat Party sees rioting and looting and burning cities as just another political tactic.

If you still do not believe that is the case, then how do you explain this:

“That’s a myth.” That, folks, is a political talking point, not to mention an outrageous, conscious lie.

For Democrat politicians – all of them are complicit, each and every one of them – all the misery, all the pain, all the destruction, all the economic loss and fear and injury and death, all of that is just a means to an end. This really is how they think, and it is only when you accept that reality about them that you realize that everything they do is perfectly predictable.

They will not stop until they are stopped or – heaven help us – until they win.

They must not win.

That is all.

America Must Hold the Corrupt News Media Accountable in Order to Survive

We must find a way to hold the corrupt corporate news media accountable before they destroy our country. – That’s been a consistent theme here at Today’s Campaign Update for four years now (today is the 4th anniversary of the very first Campaign Update posted on my Facebook page during the heat of the 2016 campaign), and it has become more urgent than ever. Because, as I noted yesterday, the media literally has the deaths of an untold number of Americans on its hands due to its focused disinformation campaign related to Hydroxychloroquine.

Dr. David Samadi, a Fox News medical contributor, put it this way on Twitter yesterday:

This is exactly the thing. Let’s remember that the media’s campaign to demonize the use of HCQ in treating COVID-19 provided cover to despot Democrat governors like Steve Sisolak in Nevada and Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan to temporarily ban the use of the drug for that purpose in their states. There is no question that that campaign, which included the knowing dissemination of bogus “studies” – one of which shamefully came out of the CDC – also intimidated doctors all over the country who might have otherwise prescribed HCQ to their patients and potentially saved their lives.

But while we focus our ire on our depraved news media establishment, we need to also remember the key role played by another prominent individual in all of this, a man who most assuredly knew better. Dr. Samadi called that person out as well:

Why indeed? To be clear: Dr. Fauci and the CDC have known since at least 2005 about the efficacy of HCQ in treating COVID-like viral infections. Yet, from the moment President Trump touted its use related to this virus at an early White House task force press briefing, Fauci has been in the media panning it. In those same media appearances, Fauci has focused on the promotion of incredibly expensive, unproven experimental drugs being developed by an array of Big Pharma companies in their quest to make billions off of this national health crisis.

Why? Why would he do that? Isn’t the answer obvious?

Fauci is the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is closely tied into and receives support from those same pharmaceutical manufacturers. Those Pharma companies essentially serve as NIAID’s lobby before congress, which helps to explain why a government institute that has consistently failed in its mission sports a $5 billion budget.

Oh.

HCQ is cheap, it is widely available and it has been used for decades mainly as a malaria treatment all over the world. There is no money to be made from HCQ.

For the corrupt, corporate news media, the motive initially seems less clear. That is, until you get to the next commercial break and suffer through yet another 90-second ad for some new drug with a mysterious name that was made up by a million dollar consultant.

This drug won’t cure you – because, hey, there’s no money in curing you – but it will dampen your symptoms at a very high price if you take it every day for the rest of your life. And, as you watch the images of some chubby 60 year-old who has the same ailment as you do leading a marching band through the streets of some Hollywood sound set designed to look like a 1950s town in middle America, you will want crave drug even as you sit through the 75 seconds of carefully-written legal disclaimers describing all of the horrible things that drug just might do to you instead of alleviating your symptoms.

The air time for that ad costs a bunch of money on NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC or even low-rated CNN. It is the life’s blood that keeps those fake news operations on the air.

Oh.

Let’s also be clear that the demonization of HCQ was not – as those corrupt media organizations contend – just a matter of them reporting the news. There is no question that it was a highly-coordinated effort –  complete with focus-grouped talking points that every reporter parroted word-for-word – that was motivated by the belief that demonizing that cheap, plentiful, well-understood drug would harm the President and his re-election chances.

This isn’t journalism- it’s a political campaign. Can any thinking person really doubt that if Barack Obama had endorsed HCQ, the media’s and Fauci’s reactions would have been entirely different? Like, 180 degrees different? Of course, they would have been.

Had Obama endorsed the drug, Governors Whitmer and Sisolak would have been demanding their legislatures allocate hundreds of millions of dollars to give the stuff away for free. They’d have ordered that every 7-11 in their state stock the stuff on their candy shelves and forced Girl Scouts to hand it out along with their cookies.

You all know this is true, don’t you? Of course you do.

The simple fact is that Americans are dead today because the news media and Democrat governors, supported by Anthony Fauci, treated HCQ not as the potentially life-saving medication that it is, but as a political football.

It’s easy to see how Fauci can and eventually will be held accountable for his serial mendacity about every element of this pandemic. If we are to ultimately survive as a society in its current form, America must find an effective way to hold these corrupt media organizations accountable as well.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: The Media has Blood on its Hands, and America has had Enough

Domestic terrorists? What domestic terrorists? – We led Friday’s News Roundup with the FBI’s arrest of one Jason Charter, a BLM/Antifa organizer who led the effort that tried and failed to take down the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Square last month. That seemed like an important story with all of the media-fed, Democrat-organized social unrest taking place in the country, right?

It turns out that, other than Fox News and OAN, not a single other TV “news” outlet spent a second of air time covering that story. That’s right: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are all so down with the terrorist cause in our country that they refuse to report on the arrests of these terrorists when they take place.

In the minds of the corrupt editors and reporters at those outlets, it is far more important to spend their time spreading more panic porn about the Wuhan virus than it is to inform the public that many of the people who burned and looted large swaths of a dozen major American cities during June are being brought to justice.

Because if a story is good for Trump, it’s bad, bad, bad for the corrupt news media.

Speaking of stories that are good for Trump and really bad for the media… – A new study from the International Journal of Infectious Diseases finds that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which the corrupt news media spent months demonizing and lying about after Trump endorsed its use, does indeed save the lives of people who have contracted COVID-19.

From a report at the Wall Street Journal:

Coronavirus patients treated with the drug hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of admission were more likely to survive than patients who received other treatment, according to the study, which was published online by the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study, which analyzed medical records of 2,541 Covid-19 patients, suggests that hydroxychloroquine can be effective if given during the early stages of contracting the virus and at the right dose, the researchers said. Other studies, however, haven’t found a benefit, and federal health officials withdrew the drug’s authorization for emergency use.

Patients whose records were analyzed were given 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine twice on the first day, followed by 200 mg twice a day the following four days.

“We gave it early,” said Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious-diseases division for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, who co-authored the study. “If it’s given late in therapy, it’s going to have relatively more limited benefits.”

[End]

In other words, this study verified exactly the studies out of France and South Korea, as well as anecdotal information from doctors around the U.S. who have had tremendous results with treating patients with HCQ early in the course of the virus. We knew all of this three full months ago, but the focused campaign by corrupt media outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Time to demonize this drug intimated many doctors to avoid its use, no doubt resulting in many deaths that would have otherwise been avoided.

The simple fact of the matter is that the American news media has blood on its hands over this safe, effective and cheap drug. But then, our corrupt media has so much blood on its hands these days that this episode is just par for the course.

If we can’t find some way to effectively hold these corrupt editors and reporters accountable for their actions, our country will eventually die. They are a gigantic cancer that is rapidly metastasizing across our culture.

How to know President Trump gave a great and effective speech… – President Trump delivered a soaring and inspiring patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore last night. Here is how the news-fakers at the New York Times characterized it:

Let’s remember that the New York Times has rolled out the terms “dark” and “divisive” at Trump’s inauguration speech and every one of his State of the Union messages. After each and every one of those speeches, the President’s public approval ratings went up.

Dear NYTimes editorial board: Your elementary school word template is failing.

Speaking of failing… – A group of protesters managed to delay the timing of the Mt. Rushmore ceremony for awhile as they blocked the road up to the monument ahead of the President’s arrival.

From a story at Fox News:

About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend.

According to the Associated Press, the protest group was mostly made up of Native Americans protesting that South Dakota’s Black Hills were taken from the Lakota people against treaty agreements.

[End]

Note: Anyone who watched the protest action live knows that the AP characterization of the makeup of the protest group is completely false. The group in fact was made up mainly of the same kind of pasty-white entitled Millennials who we see dominating every Antifa and BLM-organized riot. But hey, lying outright to the American public is what the AP and the rest of our corrupt news media does.

More from the story:

One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”

The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening’s fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.

The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.

Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.

[End]

About that police-imposed deadline: The live video feed showed that the police present on the scene sat by and did nothing as the Antifa/BLM group showed up and blocked the road. It also showed that it took almost two full hours before the police finally brought in tow trucks and started using pepper spray to clear the damn road, actions that could easily have been achieved far more quickly.

This is unacceptable.

People in this country have an absolute right to protest in public, and that right must be protected. But people do not have any right at all to block streets, disrupt, vandalize and loot businesses or tear down statues. Those acts will only end when police are freed up to take quick and decisive action to end them.

Enough. America has had enough.

Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!

The Evening Wrap: A Fake HCQ Study, New Religious Cults, and Ben Sasse Throws a Tantrum *UPDATED*

Hey, remember that Lancet study from a few weeks ago that claimed to show that Hydroxychloroquine was somehow deadly to Wuhan Virus patients? – Yeah, the study was a scam:

It turns out that the company that provided the “data” for the study doesn’t even exist, and that the report that Lancet – a “respected” medical journal – published was actually authored by a science fiction writer. I’m not kidding. Not even the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived could possibly make this stuff up.

It was all just another leftist scam to “get” Donald Trump.  The sad part of it is that people most likely died as a result of the chilling effect it had on doctors being willing to prescribe this safe, cheap and widely-used drug for patients it could have benefited. Despicable.

This is what a religious cult looks like:

Just sayin’.

Speaking of stuff you could never make up… – A couple of friends who are on a trip in Alaska right now sent me this photo today:

This is posted on a miles-long hiking trail that most likely doesn’t have 50 people on it today. There is literally not one shred of science or data that supports the notion that staying 6 feet from people in the wilds of Alaska makes even the tiniest difference, yet there it is.

This is also stuff that a religious cult adhering to nothing but dogma would do.

Burying the lede… – Ned Ryun was angry to see the news that Lindsey Graham had postponed today’s scheduled subpoena vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee after Nebraska RINO Ben Sasse threw a typical hissy fit:

However, if you go actually read that article by The Hill, you find this lede conveniently buried way down in the final two paragraphs:

Earlier Thursday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held its own vote to give subpoena power to Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) for that panel’s investigation into Obama-era actions including Crossfire Hurricane.

The vote allows Johnson to subpoena Comey, Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan, among others.

Oh.

See, it’s not all up to Senator Graham. This can all just as easily be exposed by the Homeland Security Committee, whose Chairman is a far more serious person and not nearly so obviously compromised.

***UPDATE*** – James Rosen is reporting now that Senate Judiciary met later this afternoon and voted along party lines to authorize Graham to issue the subpoenas:

Fun!

***UPDATE 2*** The normally astute Mr. Rosen was wrong. Sorry about that.

What, is the New York Times running itself as a day-care center now? – After all of his corrupt reporters tossed a mass meltdown on Twitter last night and his editors staged an open rebellion over the publication of an op/ed by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger felt the need to explain the basics of newspaper publishing to his herd of juvenile delinquents:

The op-ed page exists to offer views from across the spectrum, with a special focus on those that challenge the positions taken by our Editorial Board. We see that as a source of strength, allowing us to provide readers with a diversity of perspectives that is all too rare in modern media. We don’t publish just any argument — they need to be accurate, good faith explorations of the issues of the day — and there are many reasons why Op-Eds are denied publication. It is clear many believe this piece fell outside the realm of acceptability, representing dangerous commentary in an explosive moment that should not have found a home in The Times, even as a counterpoint to our own institutional view. I believe in the principle of openness to a range of opinions, even those we may disagree with, and this piece was published in that spirit. But it’s essential that we listen and to reflect on the concerns we’re hearing, as we would with any piece that is the subject of significant criticism.

[End]

Absolutely stunning that a newspaper publisher has to write something like this to a pack of people who presumably graduated from something called “journalism school.” And we wonder why journalism – real journalism – has become an anachronism in our country.

Speaking of the corrupt news media… – Remember how every fake media outlet in the nation went berserk over this video clip a couple of weeks ago, with many squealing that these people were all gonna get the Wuhan Virus and spread it all over the country?

There have been no new cases of the novel coronavirus among the hundreds who flouted social distancing guidelines and attended pool parties at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks over Memorial Day weekend, a state health official said this week.

Videos and photos that showed hundreds of partygoers prompted health officials in the state to express concerns that the large gatherings would lead to a surge in cases of COVID-19. Those who attended were urged to self-quarantine and get tested, while officials in St. Louis County — Lake of the Ozarks is a popular getaway for people who live in St. Louis — later issued a travel advisory.

Overall, the statewide hospitalizations from the virus have decreased by more than 40 percent in recent weeks, while the state’s number of positive cases has also declined, Parson said during the briefing, per the newspaper.

“Our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Our positivity rate continues to decline. People are recovering, and we are moving forward,” he said.

[End]

Oh.

One final reminder. – In 2009 and 2010, Americans put in office a Black president, a black attorney general, Joe Biden as VP, and Democrats had super majorities in both houses of congress. During those years, and the six years that followed, there was no criminal justice reform; there was no prison reform; there was no police reform or any other effort to correct racial injustice.

What did they focus on instead? Nationalized healthcare and climate change.

Because they’re all Democrats, and they don’t mean a damn thing they’re saying today.

Tuesday News Roundup – WHO Stunt, Trump Threat, Biden Mask and a New Leftist Religion is Born

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats destroy everything they touch. – The utterly feckless and corrupt World Health Organization announced on Sunday that it was temporarily suspending trials studying the effects of hydroxychloroquine related to the Wuhan Virus due to “safety concerns.” So, now this tool of China that helped create this global pandemic through its fealty to ChiCom talking points is now pulling rank political stunts to try to influence the U.S. election.

The Trump Administration should respond by challenging the WHO to show the world the mass graves of lupus and malaria patients who have been successfully and safely using hydroxychloroquine under doctor supervision for over 60 years. After all, if this drug is so dangerous and filled with harmful side effects, there must be thousands, if not millions, of global deaths that can be attributed to it.

Just one more reason to cut the WHO off entirely.

Now you know why President Donald Trump refuses to wear a mask in public. – Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden was helped up out of his basement and dressed by his handlers so that he could make his first public appearance in almost three months. This is what it looked like:

There is no truth to the rumor that, after the Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee saw his shadow, he scurried back to his basement to wait out 6 more weeks of winter. Although it wouldn’t be surprising, would it?

Paging Governor Greg Abbott…time to call the President…Paging Governor Abbott… – President Trump tweeted his growing concerns about the fact that Democrat North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper is continuing to drag out his state’s reopening process for purely political reasons – which are in fact the only reasons to continue doing this at this point.

With the Republican National Convention scheduled to take place in Charlotte in August, the President warned Gov. Cooper that his recalcitrance could force the RNC to find a different city that is actually interested in the hundreds of millions of dollars in economic impact the convention would bring. Cooper responded that he would “continue to rely on data and science” in making his decisions.

Well, if that’s the case, then this should be no problem, since there is literally no data or science that indicates these continuing Democrat lockdowns are having any positive impact whatsoever on the Wuhan Virus.

But hey, if Cooper doesn’t want the Republicans coming to town, the red states of Texas and Florida have plenty of cities that could handle the convention. In Texas, Governor Abbott would probably get pushback from the Democrat mayors in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, but the City of Fort Worth (the 13th largest city in the U.S., larger than Charlotte) has a great GOP Mayor named Betsy Price, who we can be sure would welcome such a major convention to her city with open arms.

And if Texas can’t swing the deal, there’s always Florida, where Governor Ron DeSantis just flat-out gets stuff done. There’s plenty of green grass outside of North Carolina.

And besides, the data and science show that being in a blue state is definitely, without any doubt at all, hazardous to your health:

C’mon to Forth Worth, y’all!

All the “Karens” out there are wondering if the killers were practicing social distancing and wearing their masks. – 36 people were shot and 9 killed in Chicago over the weekend. In response to all the mayhem, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot naturally focused her police efforts on raiding a southside Black church and shutting down its worship service. I swear I do not make this stuff up. Who could?

Speaking of church… – It’s now official: The Church of CoronaPanic is the new religious cult for those on the political left. Check out this clip of a gang of faithful “Karens” encircling a heretical non-masker in a grocery store and screaming at her until she flees the facility:

Note that the Church of CoronaPanic faithful are becoming increasingly shrill and aggressive as the Wuhan Virus fades from the scene. This is exactly what we have seen from the Church of Global Warming, which simply doubles down on more and increasingly goofy fright scenarios each time one of their absurd model projections fails to materialize in the real world.

And just as with the Climate Alarm religion, this is an entirely political phenomenon. If you could do a poll among the Church of CoronaPanic cult, you would find near-universal fealty to the Democrat Party. These are almost entirely people who spend every waking hour obtaining their talking points from talking heads on CNN or the Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter. They have no real life or religion, so the media-induced panic over the Wuhan Virus has quite literally become their life.

So expect to see many more scenes such as this one played out all over America as the viral gift from China continues to subside with the warming weather, people return to their jobs, businesses continue to reopen and the “Karens” see the foundation of their religion fading away. The Corona may be fading, but the CoronaPanic has just begun.

That is all.

Hydroxychloroquine: A Texas Family Doc Debunks Democrat/Media HCQ Myths

Guest Piece by Dr. A.B. Spence, MD

Subject: Hydroxychloroquine and the curious case of it becoming dangerous

I’m a retired (on October 1, 2019) Family Practitioner with 40 years of experience on what is now called the front lines of medical practice. I never considered myself a warrior or hero during the flu seasons, including the H1N1 epidemic, but I’m fine and dandy with those terms being used to describe my colleagues and all the other medical staff and personnel that are confronting this awful Chinese virus daily since it was unleashed on our shores a few months ago.

At age 70 and with what I suppose is a comorbidity of rheumatoid arthritis and taking the miracle drug Humira, an immunosuppressant, if I were still in practice at this time I would unquestionably be taking Hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic measure. There is anecdotal evidence that it can help resist or prevent the spread of Covid 19, and in many cases it has been shown to successfully treat Covid patients. It’s also one of the safest prescribed medications a person can take.

At least it was prior to President Trump expressing hope a couple of months ago that it could be helpful in treating Covid 19. Then it became a dangerous drug, poisonous, that would kill a lot of people with cardiac arrhythmias or whatever. And as proof the media told us about an old fella that died after guzzling an industrial fish tank cleaner that contained chloroquine as an ingredient. Somewhere Darwin simply smiled knowingly on that report.

As I researched hydroxychloroquine in the early days of the pandemic, I couldn’t find one documented case of a person dying from a cardiac arrhythmia. And this covered over 60 years of the drug being used as a treatment of and prophylaxis against malaria, both short term and long term usage. All of you reading this know of the millions of dosages given to certain people with autoimmune diseases that successfully take HCQ with no untoward reactions.

The word “anecdotal”, as it applied to Hydroxychloroquine, took on a different meaning also. In this case it is used in a demeaning manner as it wasn’t “science.” It hasn’t been proven to be effective without a shadow of doubt. No double blind or whatever studies have been done with HCQ to prove it’s 100% effective in dealing with Chinese virus. And on and on.

I can assure you that the medical profession has prescribed drugs and therapies forever based on anecdotal evidence that suggest off label treatments may be helpful for certain diseases. Most or possibly all with greater risk versus benefit profiles than HCQ and Corona Virus.

And if you think about it, the country’s entire response to the Chinese virus, the lockdowns, the masks, the gloves, the fear of contaminated surfaces, the social distancing, the closing of “nonessential” businesses, the disastrous school closings, the destruction of our best ever economy, the slaughter of thousands of our most frail senior citizens in nursing homes by certain Democrat governors (I’m looking at you Cuomo and Murphy) have been and continue to be based on anecdotal evidence of how the virus spreads, who is most at risk, how to treat it, etc. In these instances it’s referred to as “science.”

Every time I hear a leftist power hungry governor, mayor, judge, representative, senator, or medical bureaucrat say they’re going to “follow the science” to keep ruining our economy I want to vomit.

With that I I’ll stop. Feeling a bit nauseous.

A. B. Spence, M.D.

Hydroxychloroquine Hypocrisy: Kayleigh McEnany Exposes Fredo Cuomo

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is so adept at dealing with the corrupt press corps that I’m almost glad she’s started holding occasional press briefings again. Almost.

It seems that every time she holds one of these things she exposes the members of the press for being the rank hypocrites we all know them to be. Yesterday, she figuratively ripped the pants right off of CNN’s doofus evening host Fredo Cuomo because … wait for it … he used a more dangerous form of hydroxychloroquine than President Trump has been using.

In treatment for his own alleged case of Wuhan Virus, it turns out that Fredo actually took quinine, which, as McEnany devastatingly revealed at yesterday’s presser, was taken off the market by the FDA in 2006 due to its severe side effects.

Here’s a clip of Kayleigh addressing the HCQ question and Fredo:

Here is an excerpt from McEnany’s remarks:

And one thing I want to note with regard to hydroxychloroquine, because I think it’s very important that we’re as accurate as we can be with our reporting on this: Hydroxychloroquine has been a drug that has been in use for 65 years for lupus, arthritis, and malaria.  It has a very good safety profile.

But as with any drug and as with any prescription, it should be given by a doctor to a patient in that context.  So no one should be taking this without a prescription from their doctor.

But that being said, I’ve seen a lot of apoplectic coverage of hydroxychloroquine.  You had Jimmy Kimmel saying the President is, quote, “trying to kill himself by taking it.”  You had Joe Scarborough saying, quote, “This will kill you.”  Neil Cavuto saying, “What have you got to lose?  One thing you have to lose are lives.”  And you had Chris Cuomo saying, “The President knows that hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science.  He knows it has been flagged by his own people and he’s using it.”

Well, Cuomo mocked the President for this.  And interestingly, I found this out just before coming here: Hydroxychloroquine, of course, is an FDA-approved medication with a long-proven track record for safety.  And it turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects, including death.  So, really interesting to have that criticism of the President.

And on that note to Chris Cuomo, I’d like to redirect him to his brother, the Governor of New York, Governor Cuomo, who has several on-the-record statements about hydroxychloroquine, saying, “I’m an optimist.  I’m hopeful about the drug, and that’s why we’ll try it here in New York as soon as we get it.  There has been anecdotal evidence that it’s promising.  That’s why we’re going ahead.”  And I have about eight other quotes from Governor Cuomo should any of you have interest in that.

[End]

No one in the corrupt press corps was interested, of course. These are the most incurious people on earth. Your average Waffle House pancake possesses a keener sense of curiosity than the average reporter for the Washington Post.

Just in case you were beginning to think that anyone in the corrupt fake news media really holds any genuine concerns about HCQ, know that not a single one of the blue-check media hypocrites on Twitter tweeted a word of condemnation of Cuomo over his rank hypocrisy. As is always the case with corrupt reporters and the President, this is all about Trump and trying to “get” him. If Trump recommends something, or is taking some drug, it must be bad – that’s what the approved Democrat/media narrative dictates.

Yes, as both the President and McEnany have pointed out, HCQ can have severe side effects with certain patients, and should be taken only on the advice of a physician. That makes HCQ exactly like every other drug on the market today.

And guess what? When Remdesivir, which has been approved for emergency use by the FDA before going through full clinical trials, has been fully studied, it will have its own long list of side effects, as will any other hugely-expensive new drug developed by Big Pharma in response to the virus.

They all will soon be featured in those touchy-feely 90-second TV ads that feature soft music and 75 seconds of legal disclaimers. The guy who narrates those disclaimers will talk about all sorts of potential side effects, including death, as some chubby woman conducts a marching band or an elderly couple does yoga or looks peacefully out over a lake in the background to make you feel good and not listen to all the harm this drug might cause you if you take it.

All drugs have potential side effects, and HCQ is no different. The only two differences between HCQ and the drugs Big Pharma is developing and planning to make billions on are: 1) The side effects of HCQ are well-known and have been for decades, and 2) President Trump recommends HCQ.

That’s it, and that’s what Kayleigh McEnany revealed yesterday.
