Doctors go to Washington about hydroxychloroqine and COVID-19. Censorship follows.

Americasfrontlinedoctors

By Robert Willmann

Today, 28 July, a story popped up that some doctors had a little press event about the SARS-CoV-2 virus in front of the Supreme Court building yesterday in Washington D.C., introduced by Congressman Ralph Norman (Repub., South Carolina), but now the Internet websites called Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have removed the video.  The "main stream media" did not seem to be there.  By the time Facebook censored the video, it had received over 17 million views.  A group of medical doctors called America's Frontline Doctors participated in the event, and had a conference scheduled for yesterday that would end today.  The Tea Party Patriots organization helped to sponsor the events.

Dr. Simone Gold organized the doctors.  She received a medical degree in 1989 from Rosalind Franklin University, the Chicago Medical School, and has a law degree, but she does not appear to have a law license in California.  She practices emergency medicine in Los Angeles, California.  The little event had been on the vimeo.com video website earlier today, but then was removed [1].  The America's Frontline Doctors website was available this morning, but after a while today it said:  "Website Expired.  This account has expired. If you are the site owner, click below to login" [2].  

Dr. Gold said that hydroxychloroquine can be purchased over the counter in Indonesia and Iran!

The breitbart.com website has its its own video, which is still available, and it is about 44 minutes long.  During the event, a study from 2005 on chloroquine was mentioned, which is entited, "Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread".  SARS is said to be a worse virus than SARS-CoV-2.  The study is on the National Insitututes of Health website–

The program the group had scheduled for yesterday and today included presentations indoors.  Two of them as videos were on the YouTube section for the Tea Party Patriots earlier this afternoon, but one is now gone:  "This video has been removed for violating YouTube's community guidelines" [3].  The remaining one is about 3 hours, 11 minutes, and the audio is out until 4 minutes, 53 seconds into the video. It was still available as of 5:52 p.m., central time–

This morning, the CNN network followed the censorship with its own misdirection, starting out by saying: "A video featuring a group of doctors making false and dubious claims related to the coronavirus was removed by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube after going viral online Monday" [4].

One of the doctors appearing with the group is Dan Erickson from California, who went public on 22 April 2020 with the position that shutdowns were not justified–

The dosages for hydroxychloroquine for preventive or prophylactic use are said to be small, and would not even be taken on a daily basis.

When looking at the use of hydroxychloroquine, there is a fairly uncommon health condition called Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency that needs to be taken into consideration and evaluated before hydroxychloroquine is used for COVID-19. It relates to a genetic condition [5]–

"This defect occurs in about 10% of black males and in less than 10% of black females in the US and in lower frequencies among people with ancestors from the Mediterranean basin (eg, Italians, Greeks, Arabs, Sephardic Jews)".

The G6PD condition can lead to "hemolytic anemia", which indicates fewer red blood cells. The red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body. The hemolytic anemia can be triggered by some infections, or drugs (including hydroxychloroqine), or by eating fava beans or inhaling pollen from fava plants [6].

Science involves ongoing, open discussions, and not censorship.

    Robert et al,
    Here is a link to at least part of the proceedings from an American expat in NZ. If you click on the top two, you will discover that the videos are of the same event. The sound level was a bit dodgy, but at least this much is available.

    Hello,
    I’ve found NATURALNEWS.COM to be on the cutting edge of health, internet and big tech company bias, survival skills etc. Today there is a post about the FRONTLINE DOCTORS and how they’re getting shut down by the media giants.

    CDC continues to recommend the drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine themselves as “safe and effective” with “rare side effects” on their website for traveler information to malaria prone countries.
    When will that also get scrubbed? Though now they do throw in a gratuitous “covid” warning info link, which did not exist a few months ago with this chloroquinine recommendation.
    Yes, have seen the bill boards for OTC sales of these preventive compounds in various malaria prone countries around the world – like Bull Durham Tobacco – farmers get paid to have these ads painted on their outbuildings and fences.
    Did the use of quinine run into as much flak when they were building the Panama Canal?

  4. Avatar Babak makkinejad says:

    Two Iranian studies that I read indicated that hydroxychloroquine is ineffective as a treatment after infection.
    They have moved to anti viral drugs, corticosteroids.
    The 3-drug mixture of Azittomycin, Naproxen, and prednisolone (oral or injectable) have been used successfully for reduction of the inflammation of respiratory system.
    3 systematic trials have been undertaken and results were conclusive in expediting faster recovery.
    Clinical trials in Iran (in Masih Daneshvari hospital) – indicated 100% cure of COVID-19 in 20 patients using a combination of ReciGen and Cultera (sic?) which is an AIDS drug.
    A second group of patients – 152 – had a reduction in mortality of 20% as compared to those who were only receiving Cultera (sic.?)
    https://www.cinnagen.com/Product.aspx?t=2&l=1&Id=66&f=3
    The results are supposed to be published in the Journal of Immunopharmacotherapy.
    The dosage was: 5 times day, 12 million units.
    Hydroxychloroquine might have preventive benefits, I might speculate.

    She is not practicing. anything like the sort of work that would make her opinion worth two cents.
    In my opinion, this groups videos can safely be ignored. They are just more self publicising conspiracy nut cases.
    The G6PD condition information is irrelevant.
    A double blind placebo controlled trial is still the gold standard and so far to my knowledge, they haven’t produced results that would warrant its use.

    When is the Congressional hearing on hydroxychloroqine? Will “Reclaiming my Time” be the official response when the scientists of Twitter explain how they concluded who to ban from the social media site because they know the facts about hydroxychloroqine and all those other doctors don’t?

  7. Avatar morongobill says:

    I watched Dr Stella. I don’t believe she was lying. As far as I am concerned, the doctors need to sue CNN. Being called frauds is grounds for a suit.
    Maybe the doctors next time should bring several buses of patients along.

  8. Avatar Bill H says:

    walrus
    “Double blind study” or not, if 1000 patients are given the drug and 995 of them get well, compared to only 600 per 1000 in the population at large, I am going to assume that the drug works. The fact that we didn’t let another 395 die to make our case for the drug is not going to impress me. It’s actually going to make me a bit angry and feeling that they didn’t have to die.

  9. Avatar John from Michigan says:

    ALL (Walrus in particular):
    Henry Ford Hospital system, centered in Detroit and the largest in Michigan, recently published a study showing HCQ to be effective when used early after exposure to COVID19. Are the doctors there “conspiracy nut cases” ? I don’t have a link handy but you can google it, assuming Google isn’t suppressing the report.
    I would much rather listen to actual medical doctors treating people with the virus than piss ant academics and bureaucrats (like Fauci) at the FDA/CDC whose only “qualifications” are paper credentials they have purchased. A medical degree, let alone actual medical experience, are not requirements for employment by either of these organizations.

    For those of you that take hydroxychloroquine I wish you well. Please let us know how it works out.
    I won’t take it unless a doctor I trust recommends it. I definitely won’t take that recommendation from a doctor who believes in sex with demons and witches. Or from an Ophthalmologist. Or from lobbying groups like the TeaPartyPatriots that hosted and funded these quacks. I for one would like to know who they are lobbying for: Sanofi? Plaquenil? Mylan? or some other big pharma ripoff?
    Besides I used to have to take it (or its predecessor) 55 years ago and it gave me and almost everyone in my unit severe gut pain and diarrhea. Did anybody die or get deathly ill from it? No, but then we were all young men and not senior citizens. Plus our immune systems had been given a boost by regular recurring gamma globulin shots.

    CNN, earlier today, had some out take footage of the female doc from
    Africa lecturing (Lylith style) about demons entering bodies from the spirit realm for odd sexual purposes. It was obviously intended to discredit the Frontline group.

    elaine,
    Yes, but they discredited themselves by allowing her to participate.
    From wiki:
    Immanuel’s medical claims are sometimes combined with her spiritual beliefs. She has said that many gynecological illnesses are the result of having sex dreams with succubi and incubi and receiving “demon sperm”. She has said that endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, and sexually transmitted infections are caused by the spirit husbands and spirit wives.[2][8] According to Immanuel, the causes of cysts and endometriosis are individuals having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.[9] She said in a 2015 sermon that space alien DNA is used in medical treatments and that reptilians and aliens run the government. She also stated in 2015 that Illuminati are using witches to destroy the world through abortion, gay marriage, children’s toys and media such as Harry Potter, Pokémon, Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana. In another 2015 sermon, she said scientists are developing vaccines to stop people being religious[2][8]

    John,
    the Michigan study concluded with a tentative “may” have a role in the treatment of very sick patients. It also called for double blind placebo controlled trials. I have a hard time believing anyone is suppressing this news.
    I have nothing against any drug treatment. My reticence comes from six years as a CEO of a university commercialisation company. If you listen to researchers, You would be amazed at how many wonderful cures for all sorts of ailments are just waiting on university shelves for the application of sufficient money. These folk are great self promoters. It pays to be sceptical.

    Ho-Chi-Minh’s revenge they called it. But as I recall it happened everytime I took chloroquine tablets.

  17. Avatar Deap says:

    I believe the benefit of hydroxychlorquine-zinc is touted now for :covid” as it has been touted in the past for “colds” – very early stage one prevention or mitigation of first sign of symptoms of early stage contact with the virus -with the intent it reduces the viral load hoping the body’s own immune system can take over from there..
    Which is not a “cure”; nor a late stage life-saver. Just an early boost that may helpd. In the same category as touting Vit C for colds, garlic and chicken soup “penicillin”. May help.
    I think someone somewhere is over thinking this for some other agenda – must not lose the “covid threat” advantage before election day. It seems vers strange something with a history of being so benign, is getting such heavy artillery to take this even hint of “prevention” down.

    Good site to bookmark for any health question – much is very technical research date, but one also mines comprehensive studys and analysis for lay reader consumption. Just read the first intro and last paragraph conclusions if the data in the middle is of little interest.

    C19study.com collects the studies on this drug

    PrEP, PEP, and early treatment studies show high effectiveness, while late treatment shows mixed results.“
    Additionally, millions of immune compromised people with Lupis and RA take HCQ to prevent them from dying from common viral diseases like the common cold (of which coronaviruses are a part).
    In addition to that, millions have safely used it as an anti-malaria preventative for decades around the world.

  23. Avatar Chicot says:

    All the stuff about what Dr Stella says in her sermons are just lazy attempts at character assassination and wholly irrelevant. She is not claiming to have cured Covid patients by exorcism but by the use of hcq. It would be nice if someone could do some real journalism (remember that?) and discover if her claims of having treated 300 Covid patients and not having lost one were true. If that can be disproved then that would tell us a whole lot more that all this guff about demon sperm.
    As for the benefits of hcq I am unsure, but I am sure of one thing – someone has gone to a lot of trouble to discredit it and it doesn’t take a genius to see why. Hcq is out of patent and costs peanuts to make. It’s main competitor (in the US at least) Remdesivir costs $2300 for a 5-day treatment plan.

    Even if HCQ was no better than a placebo would it have hurt that much to give people hope for people for awhile. They could have said there are some risks in taking it and we are not sure it works but for now we are studying it. We want to make sure those who need it for other diseases still get it but we are going to ramp up production for now.
    It’s almost as if they worked hard on destroying people’s options. Lockdown and waiting for the ‘gene editing medicine’ was the only path forward.

    The Michigan study was seriously flawed. Pts in the Hydroxychloroquine arm mostly got steroids. In the other arm they did not. The study is not being suppressed. Everyone knows about it but since it is flawed we need a better study. This was only the most notable flaw, there were others, at least in the analysis.

  26. Avatar Deap says:

    What skin does Fauci and the media have in preventing anyone from taking hydroxy-chloroquine either for prevention or at the very early onset of symptoms?
    What treatment do they currently have for “covid” at this stage besides stay home, isolate yourself, and only come to the doctor if your symptoms worsen. Taking hydroxychloroquine has absolutely no bearing or interferes with anything that doctors would do later should any symptoms worsen.
    Assume someone willing to take this drug (OTC or RX) already knows to stay home, cover coughs and sneezes, stay away from elderly – all the things a suspected “covid” patient is told to do anyway.
    So why the heck at this stage should anyone care if they take some form of preventive or mitigating treatment. CDC admits this drug is harmless after decades of use and side effects are extremely rare.
    So why this total censorship of even mentioning this. Very, very curious and highly disturbing. CDC, Fauci, Birx and the media have absolutely no skin in this game whether anyone takes hydroxychloroquine at this intial stage of presumed or even confirmed “covid”.
    They don’t say you can’t take chicken soup. They don’t say you cant’ take a pain killer. They don’t say anything about any other initial comfort pill in these early stages of infection. NO FURTHER TREATMENT IS DELAYED that one might need, if in fact symptoms worsen. Only then do the doctors say come to ER.
    Something very fishy is going on and it needs to stop.

And THEY SAY that your chicken wings do not meet their meal standards, so you can’t have your beer. Restaurants and bars can only serve alcohol with meals.

    Childhood abuse linked to greater risk of endometriosis
    Date: July 17, 2018
    Source: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
    Summary: A study of more than 60,000 women has found that sexual and physical abuse in childhood and adolescence is associated with a greater risk of laparoscopically-confirmed endometriosis diagnosed during adulthood. The study — the largest of its kind — found that women reporting severe-chronic abuse of multiple types had a 79 percent higher risk of laparoscopically-confirmed endometriosis.
