Threats, Intimidation Against Doctors, Health Care Workers and Scientists Must End
If COVID has taught us anything, it's that medical boards can be the Taliban of allopathy. As enforcers of the amorphous "medical consensus", they are tools of Pharma Police state I warned against
Track events and medical consensus about COVID-19 from February 2020 to the present and you’ll see the fingerprints of a power grab by public health that is breathtaking in scope and unprecedented in its damage to the social fabric. On issue after issue, “scientific fact” on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments has been dictated primarily in the form of Fauci’s opinion, White House COVID-19 task force pronouncements, “studies” that have included non-peer-reviewed press releases, forward-looking statements from vaccine manufacturers, non-peer-reviewed preprints, fraudulent, peer-reviewed studies tanking early, effective, inexpensive treatments. Each of these low-quality sources of evidence has influenced or in some cases determined FDA authorizations and approvals. Under Fauci and Collins, HHS “science” has devolved into a search for a study or paper that confirms a desired, pre-determined policy position against which evidence is accumulating.
I’ve worked endlessly to explain how this constructivist, confirmationist approach to science is not science in hopes that a sufficient percentage of the population would learn to be able to learn this necessary demarcation between science and science-like activities.
It’s not as though the evidence countering the official narrative does not exist; it’s just ignored when such evidence is presented. Over the past decade, healthcare workers and scientists by people in influential positions such as medical boards and public health committees have demonstrated a willingness to ignore and dismiss, out-of-hand, evidence in the form of studies that support positions other than the official policy position. They also ignore valid critiques of the evidence that supports the official policy position.
When you can’t attack the message, attack the messenger
Simultaneously, these same people have conducted threats and attacks on medical doctors, healthcare workers, and scientists answering the call to reality-based public health policies and medical care. Attacks on ethical physicians like Bob Sears, Paul Thomas, Kelly Sutton, Meryl Nass, Kelly Brogan, and others have escalated.
The eagerness of some media outlets to participate in bullying and harassment has not aged well. For example, in September 2021, Buzzfeednews called for physicians - who know full well and contribute to the balance of the science in support of early, aggressive COVID-19 treatment - to be “punished”; in fact of the 1,380 studies that, on balance, support early, aggressive treatment, their coverage seems utterly malformed and maladaptive (see c19early.com and ivmmeta.com for the growing evidence in support of the medical treatment of COVID-19.
The efforts to discredit ethical physicians have expanded to attacks on physicians who, have shared the good news, backed by science, that earl, aggressive treatments not endorsed by the FDA reduce rates of COVID-19 diagnosis, hospitalizations due to moderate-to-severe COVID, and deaths following COVID-19 diagnosis.
Due to vaccination policies not being founded in solid science, thousands of physicians have left allopathic medicine to join or start independent practices. These individuals are still subject to harassment and bullying by medical boards in a misguided and dangerous quest to homogenize medical practice. But these physicians on medical boards have abdicated their responsibilities to medicine and have become enforcers of errant, flawed, and fraudulent public health policies. If it saves them face, perhaps they are the useful idiots of Pharma; however, like most members of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, many have direct financial conflicts of interest with Pharmaceutical companies.
Medical “Facts” about COVID-19 have changed so quickly in 2020 and 2021 that medical boards must find it difficult to enact their menacing enforcement behaviors. In most states, medical boards do not answer to a legislative body - and their actions on individual physicians’ lives can be devastating. News of medical board actions suspending a physicians’ license are transmitted by the legacy press in a manner that can irreparably damage a truly ethical physician’s reputation.
What recourse exists for physicians whose livelihoods are destroyed by impetuous attacks by medical boards that turn out to be wrong? Since every single public health position has been proven wrong by real-world experience and new data, medical boards should act in a humble manner. COVID19 has proven that the medical Taliban need to have their weapons of enforcement dulled.
Pharma Take-Over: Regulatory Capture is Nearly 100%
Regulatory capture of the US federal government is nearly 100% complete: where government regulatory agencies begin and Pharmaceutical companies end has become utterly blurred. Similarly, public health take-over of medical practice is nearly 100% complete. Since the Pharma profit agenda rules over public health, that means Pharma rules medicine.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. recently provided a summary of this take-over of medicine by public health in an interview with the doctor who discovered that fatal doses of hydroxychloroquine were being used in late-stage COVID studies designed to show that hydroxychloroquine was ineffective against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. I personally find this quote to be the turnkey quote that history will remember for a long time when we succeed in freeing allopathic medicine from the grips of the public health/Pharma cartel:
“That obligation of the doctor is to the patient. It is not to the state. It is not to any outside institution. And this is recognized in our law … There’s a doctor-patient privilege .. . It is the central basis of Western medicine for 2,500 years. And now you have these technocrats, like Tony Fauci, who are saying, we’re gonna change that relationship. …The obligation of the doctor is not to the patient. The obligation is to the state. The doctor is an instrument of state policy. And once you make that decision (to allow doctors to be instruments of the state), medicine is no longer met.”
I warned against the end of democracy in America in an article published by The Daily Kos in December, 2015. That article led to me being banned as a contributor. I’ve been attacked for daring to be able to provide criteria for the differential diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Guillain-Barré Syndrome in a vaccine case - a non-judicial move by a Special Master who now has that personal attack on their record of accomplishments.
The attack on me was the thanks I received for daring to review the literature on clinical features of ALS and GBS. I did this after 20 years of experience in biomedical research experience, including work in molecular pathology on the etiology and disease and extensive work on biomarkers for differential disease diagnosis and individualized cancer treatments, working closely with the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) at the National Cancer Institute. The attack was designed to draw into question my reputation. By attempting to discredit me, their hope was to make me less useful as a witness in other cases. It has set other lawyers defending fascism up with an easy ad-hominem attack - regardless of the content or value of my testimony. If you can’t attack the message, attack the messenger.
Check out this ridiculous stub of a Wikipedia article that is supposed to reflect the entirety of my life and career as a scientist (find my publications on Pubmed). The fact that they believe they have to hobble me as a witness is a clear sign of desperation. The fact that even I can tell the difference between ALS and GBS, while HHS’s physician expert witnesses cannot, speaks to their reputation, not mine.
What The Public Can Do To Recapture Medicine
I absolutely believe that physicians should be held accountable for wrong-doing (read “Cures vs. Profits” if there is any doubt on that point. Legislatures in each state must be place medical board actions and their actions under scrutiny and review of a non-partisan committee tasked with reviewing the evidence against a physician - and evidence defending physicians - before any pending action against physicians is made public. Particular aggressive medical boards should be sanctioned by legislative bodies - with the force of law including orders to cease & desist in clear examples of persecution. And laws must be passed to ensure continued and unabated operations of private practices until a final determination by a medical board - which then should be sent for review by the non-partisan committee. Violations (such as leaks or anonymous quotes to the press) should come with severe personal and professional liabilities to medical boards. The rules of the non-partisan committee must preclude conflicts of interest with pharma and medical supply companies.
