On July 28 i uploaded a video to the Internet Archive which i titled COVID-19: America's Frontline Doctors Respond To High Tech Censorship (28-JUL-2020). Not only did someone at the Archive decide to force people to log-on to the site before they could watch the video, but the founder of the Internet Archive, Brewster Lurton Kahle, left a comment on the video page with links to two articles in the Washington Post. Yes, the Post. You know, those bunch of 'fake news' hacks that lost a $250,000,000 lawsuit because they decided to publish a patently 'fake news' story which suited their own political agenda which, like Kahles, is decidedly leftist in nature.
One of the Post articles Kahle linked to is titled Trump retweeted a video with false covid-19 claims. One doctor in it has said demons cause illnesses.. The article makes the provably false claim that hydroxychloroquine is ineffective in treating the COVID-19 virus. In order to make that claim, the Post links to heavily biased studies which ignore key evidence in order to conclude that the off-patent drug is not only ineffective, but dangerous, which is a ludicrous claim given its 60+ year track record of efficacy and safety, hydroxychloroquine being far safer than over-the-counter drugs like Tylenol or Aspirin.
In Peru, the bark extracts of cinchona tree was used to treat malaria and babesiosis started almost 400 years ago. About 200 years ago quinine was found to be the key anti-malaria compound in the bark. The analog of quinine, CQ was made in 1934 and formally introduced into clinical practice in the United States in 1947 for the prophylactic treatment of malaria. In addition, CQ was also used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus erythematosus. A safer derivative HCQ was made in 1955. In 2017, there were more than five million prescriptions of HCQ in the United States, indicating that in the absence of other drug interactions or special health conditions, HCQ should be a relatively safe drug.
Studies attesting to the efficacy and safety of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 patients include the following:
- Retraction—Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis
- Treatment with Hydroxychloroquine Cut Death Rate Significantly in COVID-19 Patients, Henry Ford Health System Study Shows
- Clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19 outpatients reported as safe
- Observational Study of Hydroxychloroquine in Hospitalized Patients with Covid-19
- Is hydroxychloroquine beneficial for COVID-19 patients?
- Chloroquine Diphosphate for the Treatment of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Secondary to SARS-CoV2 (CloroCOVID19)
- The cardiotoxicity of antimalarials
- Hydroxychloroquine Has about 90 Percent Chance of Helping COVID-19 Patients
Of course the Washington Post, like all mainstream (legacy) "news" companies, has close relationships with, and receives a massive amount of ad dollars from the pharmaceutical industry which cannot profit from off-patent drugs to the degree it can from patented drugs, and this is the real reason why hydroxychloroquine is being demonized. The Post, as with all mainstream media, is in bed with a long laundry list of repulsive companies, foundations and people, many of which have ties to the global healthcare industry, however we are apparently supposed to ignore such interlocks and assume that these relationships have no effect on the Post's credibility.
Here are the videos that the technocratic gate-keepers and their mindless minions don't want you to see. Watch and share them. Do your own research and decide for yourself how "fake" they are.
