By now, in December of 2021, millions of Americans are familiar with the scandalous events that have resulted in the millions of unnecessary deaths from Covid-19. Yet, astonishingly, an equal number of Americans are still on the other side of the aisle and have rejected all dialogue about Covid cures, masks, vaccines, and lockdowns.
Fear of Covid is understandable. Hostile opposition to any discussion about Covid is indefensible, totalitarian, and completely unscientific. Science requires vigorous debate to actually be science.
As we enter winter, with the threat of new lockdowns because of manufactured hysteria about the Omicron variant, let’s step back and take a bird’s eye view of what the Covid establishment authorities have done to America and the world over the last two years.
Death by Hospital
I’ll start with a headline from December 1, 2021, at The Epoch Times: “Dying COVID-19 Patient Recovers After Court Orders Hospital to Administer Ivermectin.” In the article, Matthew Vadum writes of the seventy-one-year-old patient’s ordeal:
I begin with this item because it’s central to the crime of the Covid narrative. Large percentages of the populations of the world are deeply afraid of dying from Covid, but treatments have existed from the beginning that could have prevented or cured almost all Covid cases, thus minimizing the global fear that resulted in lockdowns, masks, and vaccine mandates.
But those treatments were blocked and are still being blocked, to such a degree that Covid-Narrative individuals don’t even want to talk about them and instead live in fear. One must ask: why would a hospital block the use of Ivermectin when the patient is inches from death? The moral of the story is this: do your utmost to avoid going to the hospital with Covid because you will probably not get the treatment you need to recover.
In March of 2020, I was thrilled to read that Israel was donating ten million doses of hydroxychloroquine to the United States. The Breitbart article, titled “Israeli Firm Donates to U.S. Ten Million Pills Touted by Trump for Coronavirus Treatment,”2 was excellent news, in my opinion, for one enormous reason.
The “HCQ” protocol (Hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Azithromycin) outlined in the article had already started to save lives if the medicines were given when the patients first displayed symptoms. My commonsense reaction to that news was:
But it was not to be.
As we all know, HCQ was rejected as a cure, with dire warnings of the “dangers” of hydroxychloroquine, even though doctors continue to this day to routinely prescribe it for non-Covid treatments; even though it’s been safely taken, over the counter, all over Africa for decades to ward off malaria; even though some courageous doctors continue to prescribe it and continue to save hundreds and thousands of lives.
Many doctors testified very early in the pandemic about real results with HCQ and their subsequent frustration with the global blocking of HCQ as a cure, including the Yale Professor of Epidemiology, Dr. Harvey Risch, when he wrote in the July 23, 2020, Newsweek article “The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It”:
Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a physician from upstate New York, used hydroxychloroquine and zinc in early 2020 and was remarkably successful. On July 7, 2021, he reported on the opposition and censorship he encountered in a must-see, one-hour video interview with author John Locke.4
With HCQ discredited by the medical powers-that-be and the mainstream media, many resourceful doctors adopted Ivermectin, which acts in a similar fashion to hydroxychloroquine as a “zinc ionophore,” enabling the zinc to get into the cells and stop the multiplication of the Coronavirus. Dr. Pierre Kory and the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance have voluminous research on the efficacy and safety of ivermectin at their website.5
In a March 10, 2021 article for RealClear Politics titled ”Censorship Kills: The Shunning of a COVID Therapeutic,” Kory wrote:
HCQ, Ivermectin, and zinc also work as preventative medicines. Dennis Prager relates his family’s experience with HCQ in a February 9, 2021 article for The Epoch Times, writing:
On October 18, 2021, Prager announced that he had gotten Covid and had taken the Hydroxychloroquine / Ivermectin protocols. He fully recovered and shared his experience in a November 9, 2021 article for Townhall, stating:
The medical establishment has dismissed HCQ and Ivermectin and thus must answer this question, the title of Prager’s Epoch Times op-ed above:
It has now been demonstrated thousands of times that a safe, inexpensive, early-treatment cure for Covid is available, and hospitalization and death can be avoided most of the time. People do not need to be afraid of Covid—if they can get the medicines.
The drugs can be used in a preventative regimen and as an active cure. There are a number of national telehealth services with doctors who prescribe the meds, including SpeakWithAnMD.com, through which anyone in the USA can legally obtain HCQ and Ivermectin, shipped directly to your door. At the time of this writing, it’s about $60 for the consult and around $60 for the meds, depending on which ones you get.
I got prescriptions for both the preventative and the active medicines because it has been stated by doctors that if one ever does get Covid, taking the medicines within the first day or two is critical, and the ordering and shipping process is too slow.
Tragically for humanity, instead of recommending these medicines and curing people of Covid as soon as they get it (and thus preventing hospitalizations and deaths), medical bureaucrats, government officials, liberal governors and mayors, and the mainstream media have chosen a different route. I also think that more doctors need to stand up against this tyranny, but it is true that they risk their careers to do so. Still...
Rejecting the Cure: Lockdowns, Masks, and Vaccine Mandates
Since the “Covid Cartel” said no cure was available (ignoring HCQ and Ivermectin) and since computer models that were later discovered to be false predicted millions of deaths, the only recourse, in their “scientific opinion,” has been to:
Masks and Lockdowns
Is the intolerance toward opposing Covid views based “on science,” as the scornful party-liners allege? What about “the cult of masks”?
Daniel Horowitz, writing for The Blaze on March 2, 2021, stated that:
Horowitz’s article addresses the issue of forcing children to wear masks, asking:
We’ve all seen the harm that lockdowns and mandated masks have done to both children and adults, to our family and friends, to the education of our children, to businesses of every size, to incomes and livelihoods, to goals and projects and personal dreams.
How much damage has been done worldwide? It is literally incalculable.
Now, in December 2021, when many people are thinking, “Hey, this can’t go on forever,” it actually seems to be going on forever—at least in states run by liberal governors who use the excuse that they have to declare a state of emergency in order to qualify for federal money. The immorality of that is dark indeed.
Starting with Texas and Mississippi, some conservative states have ended the lockdowns and mask mandates almost completely. Yet far too many liberal states and cities like New York City and Los Angeles are keeping their citizens and economies in a virtual prison.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has turned into a one-man flip-flopping doom machine, with recommendations to wear multiple masks10 and to wear masks into 202211—and the CDC has played along, joined by the media and liberal elites.
Vaccines and Gulags
And now we have the issue of vaccines. I’m not an “antivaxxer.” I’ve had quite a number of vaccines in my life. But the new Covid vaccines have two very large problems:
Australia is a virtual prison for the unvaccinated,14 and Austria has announced compulsory national vaccination for citizens, with almost no exceptions.15 16
Ironically, as the almost fully vaccinated countries of Ireland, Israel, and Gibraltar17 have demonstrated, the vaccinated are spreading Covid faster than the unvaccinated. But the media won’t tell you that.
To me, the primary questions about Covid vaccine mandates are:
The drive to vaccinate the whole world has entered the realm of guilt and accusation, based on the premise that people won’t be able to be free of lockdowns and masks until everyone gets vaccinated. So, if you don’t want to get vaccinated, you’re forcing the “good” vaccinated citizens to suffer more. The CDC stated:
This is masterful and diabolical manipulation: to turn citizens against each other and to create a class of citizens who look down on, attack, and report those who disagree. Parallels to this were seen in the oppression of Hitler’s Germany, Soviet Russia, Mao’s Red Guards, and totalitarian societies throughout history. This is America and the world in 2021.
It’s Time to Stop the Covid Cartel
The controversies about how to deal with Covid have divided our societies across the world in a tragic fashion and have accentuated the already destructive divisions that have poisoned political dialogue over the last few years.
It is especially grievous that Covid party-liners are so convinced about their “rightness” that most will not read articles like this and certainly won’t believe them if they do, “because science.” But whose science are they believing?
As of December 1, 2021, almost a million people, including 59,632 medical and public health scientists and medical practitioners, have signed a statement against the lockdowns called “The Great Barrington Declaration.”19 Sixty-thousand medical professionals is not a trivial number. But still, those suffering from the Covid mass delusion ignore all of this.
Now, in 2021, freedom-loving, rational people from across the political spectrum must review the facts.
According to NBC (ignoring alleged vast miscategorizations of deaths as Covid, which is another serious scandal), over 4 million people have died from Covid worldwide.20 If HCQ, Ivermectin, and other cures had been deployed, how many people would have been saved? Eighty-five percent, as Vladimir Zelenko suggested in his July 7th interview?
If so, it means that by not deploying early treatments, the Covid Cartel of Leftist elites and their liberal enablers are responsible for 3.4 million deaths in the last two years that did not have to happen. My friend Steve did not have to die. Many of you have friends or family who died that did not have to. Because of their lockdown mandates, the members of the Covid Cartel are responsible for the destruction of national economies and the well-being of billions of humans around the globe.
Therefore, we must all ask these critical-thinking questions:
I believe that the answers to these questions are “yes.” I believe that Dr. Anthony Fauci and many others should all be called to account in Nuremberg-style trials, both to seek justice for the millions who were harmed and also to halt the totalitarian actions of the Covid overlords. Freedom-loving Americans, both liberals and conservatives, must act on these issues.
It’s time to stop the unnecessary Covid deaths, the slave-like mask and vaccine mandates, and the country-destroying lockdowns. The time is now.
