Kansas Senate Passes Bill to Authorize the Prescriptions of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine and Child Vaccine Exempt

Kansas state senators passed a bill early Thursday that would authorize the prescriptions of off-label drugs for Covid-19 treatment, such as Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. The bill also exempts children from being vaccinated if “such immunizations would violate sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Senate Sub. for HB 2280, as amended, concerns prescribing and dispensing of drugs for off-label use and religious exemptions for childhood vaccines, the bill stated.

The bill was passed with 21 voted yes, and 16 voted no.

Capital-Journal reported:

The Senate worked on a host of bills into the early morning hours in a marathon session. The off-label drug bill, HB 2280, passed 21-16 shortly before 1:30 a.m.

“Thousands of Kansans and hundreds of thousands of Americans have died because of this propaganda that shut down early treatment,” said Sen. Mark Steffen, R-Hutchinson. “I fully believe that this passage of this bill through the Senate will gain national attention and help be a very important part of getting the care to the people who need it.”

The bill would allow doctors to prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and any other FDA-approved drug that isn’t a controlled substance for an off-label use to prevent or treat COVID-19.

It further requires pharmacists to fill the prescriptions, removing their professional discretion to refuse to fill a prescription, unless they find a reason other than the connection to COVID-19.

“With this provision, a doctor can write a prescription for abortion medication under the guise of COVID, and the pharmacist must fill it,” said Cindy Holscher, D-Overland Park, who opposed the bill.

Another piece protects doctors from board of healing arts investigations connected to the pandemic, prohibiting any “recommendation, prescription, use or opinion” on COVID-19 treatments from being considered unprofessional conduct.

The bill also expands existing religious exemptions for childhood wellness vaccines at schools and day cares. It effectively creates a new exemption where any parent can claim a moral or ethical exemption to any youth vaccinations.

War on Hydroxychloroquine Traced Back to Gilead, the Drug Maker Set to Profit from Remdesivir

Lance D Johnson
September 04, 2020

 It was beyond strange when the major media networks began to attack a pharmaceutical, especially in the middle of a pandemic. When did the major media networks ever criticize a drug? It turns out that controversial pharmaceutical is a cheap medicine that helps human cells uptake zinc so their immune system can recover from coronavirus infections.

Dr. Didier Raoult of France was using something as simple and cheap as hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in combination with zinc and an antibiotic to successfully treat coronavirus patients. The news of Raoult’s success spread like wildfire, and U.S. President Donald Trump ultimately promoted the treatment, which acts as both a prophylactic and a therapeutic.

But it doesn’t matter how many doctors successfully treat coronavirus patients using HCQ and zinc. It doesn’t matter what people do in the home to help their immune system through the infection. What matters is drug company profits.

Tens of billions of dollars are on the line as Gilead tries to force dangerous Remdesivir down patient’s throats

There are tens of billions of dollars on the line if doctors are able to use something as cheap as HCQ and zinc to cure patients. Gilead, the maker of Remdesivir, wants to make sure that doctors use their 5-day coronavirus treatment which costs $3,000 per patient. In comparison, a generic dose of HCQ costs anywhere between $10 and $20.

Studies on Gilead’s remdesivir are abysmal, showing adverse events for 102 (66%) of 155 remdesivir recipients. The adverse events were so horrific for remdesivir patients, that 18 (12%) of the patients had to be taken off the drug. As their drug failed, Gilead went to war with a simple treatment protocol that was working.

Gilead’s desperate war against HCQ

The first hit job on HCQ came from the Veterans’ Administration hospital system study. One author of the study received numerous grants from Gilead, and in one instance, he collected nearly a quarter of a million dollars from the drug company. The flaws in the study were swiftly exposed, as Gilead tried to influence the results of the study.

The next hit job on HCQ came from Surgisphere, which published a 15,000-patient mega study that allegedly compiled data from hospitals across the world. The data, aimed at discrediting HCQ, was published in the prestigious Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine. Upon further review, the data was found to be fraudulent and the study was retracted from the journals, but it was too late: The study was used to restrict outpatient use of HCQ in the U.S. Australia, and most of Europe.

The editors of the Lancet declared Surgisphere’s scheme a “monumental fraud” but by then it was too late. These same Lancet editors had already gone out of their way to pressure the World Health Organization to suspend all trials for HCQ.

Even though France’s very own Dr. Raoult was successfully using HCQ in his treatment protocol, France was one of the first countries to severely restrict access to the drug. This suppression of treatment was done in a system of socialized medicine, which is supposed to protect patients from the abuses of pharmaceutical companies. The coordinated lobbying to suppress access to a life-saving treatment is considered a crime against humanity. Dr. Raoult fought hard against Gilead and testified against them during a meeting of the French National Assembly.

Since then, doctors around the world have followed suit and used this simple treatment protocol. A group of U.S. doctors appeared live in front of the Supreme Court to testify on the effectiveness of HCQ, but their success stories were immediately banned by Facebook, whose executives are apparently in on Gilead’s swindle. Nevertheless, the brave front line doctors are doing everything they can to get the word out to patients that there are physicians who will prescribe HCQ.

Gilead controls the panel that decides coronavirus treatment and has presidential candidate Joe Biden in their back pocket

According to the NIH, eight out of fifty-five members who are on the panel making suggestions for covid-19 treatment, are currently affiliated with Gilead. At least another twenty-four members of the panel have past associations with this domineering drug company. A drug company that is not only committing crimes against humanity, restricting access to treatments that work and pushing costly treatments that harm more people, but they also continue to control who gets access to treatment, while manipulating what kind of treatment is available and suppressing anything that could help people’s immune systems recover.

Gilead controls both political parties but has three times the financial influence over the Biden campaign, according to campaign donation records. Gilead’s top executives will be trying to save themselves from going to prison by campaigning for Joe Biden, who will gleefully carry out the plot of his handlers.

Rep. Gohmert Credits Hydroxychloroquine for Recovery From COVID-19

ZACHARY STIEBER
August 15, 2020

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) says he tested negative for COVID-19, about two weeks after testing positive for the new disease, and credits hydroxychloroquine for helping him recover.

Gohmert, 66, tested positive for COVID-19 on July 29. He was tested as part of precautionary measures implemented for anyone scheduled to come into contact with President Donald Trump.

Gohmert opted to take a regimen of hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial that has shown some success against the new disease, with azithromycin, an antibiotic also known as Z-Pak, and zinc.

Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Aug. 5, the lawmaker credited the regimen with his recovery.

“I really think getting so early in with the hydroxychloroquiune and the Z-pak, zinc, I really think that helped make a difference,” he said, noting that symptoms included a cough, light fever, and a general feeling of soreness.

Gohmert said he also took vitamins D3 and C and a steroid nebulizer.

The lawmaker told the Washington Examiner on Friday that he has tested negative for COVID-19. He has also tested positive for antibodies. He plans to donate plasma to help others recover from the disease.

“I feel sorry for patients whose doctors are not even allowed to consider the hydroxychloroquine regimen. That’s a real shame,” Gohmert said.

Gohmert said July 29 that he planned to take hydroxychloroquine. He told Hannity at the time that a close doctor friend messaged him and told the lawmaker that he was recently diagnosed with COVID-19. The doctor began taking a hydroxychloroquine regimen, Gohmert said.

Hydroxychloroquine became a political issue earlier this year when Trump, a Republican, recommended COVID-19 patients take the drug.

Some researchers have said the drug has an impact on the new disease while others say it does not.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June revoked its emergency-use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and the closely related chloroquine. In a letter explaining the move, FDA chief scientist Denise Hinton pointed to trials she said show the drugs “are unlikely to produce an antiviral effect.”

That was before researchers in Michigan found hydroxychloroquine lowered the death rate of COVID-19 patients.

Gohmert’s diagnosis had a near-immediate impact. After he tested positive, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new rule that required members wear a mask in the halls of the House.

“The chair would also like to remind members that the speaker has the authority to direct the sergeant at arms to remove a member from the floor as a matter of decorum,” Pelosi said at the time. “To reiterate, the chair views the failure to wear a mask as a serious breach of decorum.”Follow Zachary on Twitter: @zackstieber

Democrat NYC Councilman: Hydroxychloroquine ‘Saved My Life’

Valerie Richardson 
August 9, 2020

A Democratic New York City council member has credited hydroxychloroquine with saving his life after he contracted the novel coronavirus in March.

Democrat Paul Vallone, who represents northeast Queens, told the New York Post he was struggling to breathe before his doctor prescribed hydroxychloroquine, which he took with Azithromycin, the antibiotic also known as Zithromax or Z-Pak.

“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed,” said Mr. Vallone in an interview posted Saturday. “My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two or three days I was able to breathe. Within a week I was back on my feet.”

He said the medication, which is FDA-approved for lupus, malaria and rheumatoid arthritis but not COVID-19, “saved my life.”

His experience comes as debate continues to rage on whether to prescribe hydroxychloroquine, or HCQ, for COVID-19. The FDA revoked its emergency-use authorization for the drug on June 15 after determining that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine “are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.”


Admiral Brett Giroir, a physician and member of the White House coronavirus task force, said Aug. 2 that “right now, hydroxychloroquine, I can’t recommend that.”

“And the evidence just doesn’t show that hydroxychloroquine is effective right now,” said Dr. Giroir on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I think we need to move on from that and talk about what is effective, both from a public-health standpoint.”

Other physicians swear by HCQ, insisting the drug works for helping patients recover from COVID-19 when administered early on.

A July 2 study conducted by the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit found that treating patients with HCQ “cut the death rate significantly in sick patients hospitalized with COVID-19 — and without heart-related side effects.”

In a July 16 report, the Korean Society of Infectious Diseases also recommended early administration of HCQ, saying its study findings suggested that “patients confirmed of COVID-19 infection should be administered HCQ as soon as possible.”

Dr. Stephen Smith, who heads the Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health in East Orange, New Jersey, called Dr. Giroir’s “move on” comment “a ridiculous statement,” saying the drug “has an anti-inflammation effect on COVID patients.”

“I’ve seen dramatic responses, especially early on,” said Dr. Smith in a Thursday interview on Fox’s “The Ingraham Angle.” “I’ve seen some patients get better really quickly — much more quickly than we expect with an anti-viral agent.”

Mr. Vallone, who announced his diagnosis in an April 1 Facebook post, said that he suffers from sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disorder that attacks the lungs.

“We were in panic mode when I went down because I didn’t have a lot of immune response,” he told the Post. “I needed something to stay alive.”

Mr. Vallone added that hydoxychloroquine “worked for me.”

The drug’s effectiveness was called into question after President Trump touted it at a press conference, but another Democrat, Michigan state Rep. Karen Whitsett, credited in April her recovery from COVID-19 to hydroxychloroquine.

Editors of The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine: Pharmaceutical Companies are so Financially Powerful They Pressure us to Accept Papers

Staff Writer,
June 14th, 2020

In a videotaped interview on May 24, 2020, Dr. Douste-Blazy provided insight into how a series of negative hydroxychloroquine studies got published in prestigious medical journals.

Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD, a cardiologist and former French Health Minister who served as Under-Secretary General of the United Nations; he was a candidate in 2017 for Director of the World Health Organization.

He revealed that at a recent Chatham House top secret, closed door meeting attended by experts only, the editors of both, The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine expressed their exasperation citing the pressures put on them by pharmaceutical companies.

He states that each of the editors used the word “criminal” to describe the erosion of science.

He quotes Dr. Richard Horton who bemoaned the current state of science:

“If this continues, we are not going to be able to publish any more clinical research data because pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful; they are able to pressure us to accept papers that are apparently methodologically perfect, but their conclusion is what pharmaceutical companies want.”

Dr. Douste-Blazy supports the combination treatment – hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZ) for Covid-19 recommended by Dr. Didier Raoult. In April, 2020

Dr. Douste-Blazy started a petition that has been signed by almost 500,000 French doctors and citizens urging French government officials to permit physicians to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients early, before they require intensive care.

The issue has become highly politicized; the left-leaning politicians and public health officials are adamantly against the use of HCQ, whereas those leaning toward the right politically are for the right of doctors to prescribe the drug as they see fit.

The journal SCIENCE described the response to French President Emmanuel Macron trip to Marseille to meet Dr. Raoult who prescribes the combination drug regimen and he has documented their effectiveness.

However, public health officials, academic physicians and the media – all of who are financially indebted to pharmaceutical companies and their high profit marketing objectives – vehemently oppose the use of HCQ, and use every opportunity to disparage the drug by derisively referring to President Trump as its booster.

British Prime Minister Channels Churchill As He Surrenders To Gates And The Vaccine Cartel

This is the moment of national humiliation that we somehow did not see on our television sets last night: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson surrendering to Bill Gates and the vaccine cartel, GAVI, hailed by him as the new NATO – while he speaks from a nation on its knees like Vichy France.

While British news after months of wall to wall Coronavirus suddenly, mysteriously became obsessed with the 13 year old saga of Madeleine McCann almost no one saw Johnson’s insipid, but rhetorically overblown speech at the end of the global summit he hosted in London yesterday and chaired with Gates.

No one knew when they were electing Johnson that they were electing Gates.

and putting the vaccine industry at the heart of the British nation’s future. It was particularly galling to see him extol the already failed Oxford COVID vaccine as an example of British innovation.

This is presumably where we were headed from the moment lockdown was announced.

The meeting elicited a short mention at the end of the BBC 10 o’clock news and was not mentioned on the front pages of any of the national newspapers this morning.

Bill Gates Reduce Population

If GAVI is the new NATO, and the focus of British national destiny perhaps the moment should not have been news managed out of existence.

Now everything that our lives were worth has to be surrendered in an endless war against disease long ago devised by Mr Gates.

In Gates’s brave new world everyone will have to have vaccines like computer patches every five minutes, and when they don’t work – if we are still standing – we will have to have another.

Hydroxychloroquine Rated ‘Most Effective Therapy’ by Doctors for Coronavirus: Global Survey

 Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times
Thursday, April 2, 2020

An international poll of more than 6,000 doctors released Thursday found that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine was the most highly rated treatment for the novel coronavirus.

The survey conducted by Sermo, a global health care polling company, of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries found that 37% of those treating COVID-19 patients rated hydroxychloroquine as the “most effective therapy” from a list of 15 options.

Of the physicians surveyed, 3,308 said they had either ordered a COVID-19 test or been involved in caring for a coronavirus patient, and 2,171 of those responded to the question asking which medications were most effective.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave chloroquine and its next-generation derivative, hydroxychloroquine, emergency-use authorization Monday for treating the novel coronavirus, although the drug was already being used off-label by some doctors and hospitals for COVID-19 patients.

The survey also found that the most commonly prescribed treatments are analgesics (56%), azithromycin (41%) and hydroxychloroquine (33%).

Azithromycin, known by the brand name Zithromax or Z-Pak, was rated the second-most effective therapy at 32%, followed by “nothing,” analgesics (including acetaminophen), anti-HIV drugs and cough medicine.

Hydroxychloroquine, which is sold under the brand name Plaquenil, was prescribed mainly in the United States for the most severe cases, but not so in other countries.

“Outside the U.S., hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the U.S. it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients,” the survey found.

The 30 nations surveyed included those in Europe, Asia, North America and South America, as well as Australia. No incentives were provided to participate in the poll, conducted March 25-27, according to Sermo.

Hydroxychloroquine usage was most widespread in Spain, where 72% of physicians surveyed said they had prescribed it, followed by Italy at 49%, and least popular in Japan, where 7% had used it to treat COVID-19.

The poll found 23% of U.S. medical professionals had prescribed the drug, which has been FDA-approved for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Debate about hydroxychloroquine has raged in the United States since President Trump touted it two weeks ago as a potential “game-changer” in the fight against the deadly pandemic, prompting critics to accuse him of peddling unproven remedies, or “snake oil,” as USA Today put it.

Sermo CEO Peter Kirk called the polling results a “treasure trove of global insights for policy makers.”

“Physicians should have more of a voice in how we deal with this pandemic and be able to quickly share information with one another and the world,” he said. “With censorship of the media and the medical community in some countries, along with biased and poorly designed studies, solutions to the pandemic are being delayed.”

The survey also found that 63% of U.S. physicians believe restrictions should be lifted in six weeks or more, and that the epidemic’s peak is at least 3-4 weeks away.

The survey also found that 83% of global physicians anticipate a second global outbreak, including 90% of U.S. doctors but only 50% of physicians in China.

On average, U.S. coronavirus testing takes 4-5 days, while 10% of cases take longer than seven days. In China, 73% of doctors reported getting rest results back in 24 hours.

In cases of ventilator shortages, all countries but China said the top criteria should be patients with the best chance of recovery (47%), followed by patients with the highest risk of death (21%), and then first responders (15%).

In China, the survey said doctors prioritized patients at greatest risk of death.
