Climate Deniers & Coronavirus 'Cures'

The following individuals and groups, who have historically focused on denying or downplaying the risk of man-made global warming, have turned their attention to the COVID-19 crisis.

This set of examples looks at examples of individuals and groups who have pushed for unverified “cures” or treatments for the coronavirus before they have been officially approved.

MUST WATCH FULL SHOW – 03:24:2020 – We’re Not A Nation Of Cowards, This Is Not How America Works, Time To Go Back To Work!” The Alex Jones Show.

Alex Jones: [00:08:26] It won’t be this year. Next year, the vaccine comes out and they’ll say, if you haven’t had it, you can’t fly, you can’t work. And then you’ll be socially pecked on by others who will then virtue signal. ‘Starbucks fires employees who don’t take it.’ Even though top scientists say it’s a dangerous vaccine and it’s not going to cover you for next year’s mutation of the virus, it’s like a new flu they’ve introduced to us. And most coronaviruses are a very unstable and drift off of being dangerous. But that’s the science. And they won’t tell you the science that zinc, if taken preventatively before you get sick, depending on the study you look at is between ninety seven and ninety nine percent effective with viruses, period. [00:09:09]

Alex Jones: [00:09:10] Look it up. Type in ‘zinc anti-viral’ and you will see it for yourself. And what does chloroquine will do? Hydroxychloroquine? It is simply a medical version of what is in the tonic [water] that you get at the store. Because the British government learned it was anti-malarial. … 

Alex Jones: [00:10:44] No one’s going to tell you you can just go to any store and get that for yourself and drink two bottles of it, that’s what’s recommended. Listeners thought I was joking yesterday when a caller brought it up. Even the crew did. [00:10:52]

Alex Jones: [00:10:52] They went, and looked it up, said like my God, the tonic, Seagram’s Tonic or any other tonic has it in it. Yes, the same thing that’s in hydroxychloroquine. [00:11:02]

Alex Jones: [00:11:06] That the British military discovered why the British kept winning all the wars, folks, because they had better science. [00:11:12]

Original post on the Hancock Prospecting website:

And what should have been done by the WHO and other world health authorities, and will still be profoundly useful.

Information compiled by Professor Ian Brighthope.

In addition to the recommendations in place regarding the prevention of the spread of Covid19, some simple and inexpensive measures could have been put in place and possibly saved human lives and the economic tragedies that have befallen the global population.

The Covid19 virus is a member of the common cold group of viruses. It has undergone genetic changes and become highly virulent and deadly to some, especially the aged and those with weakened immune systems.

We know from the medical and scientific literature that optimal nutrition is one of the main factors for a healthy well functioning immune system.  Both vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and vitamin D are essential to and effective in supporting and strengthening the immune system. 

Vitamin C also has antiviral activities against many viruses including the common cold and the influenza viruses.

Vitamin C at 1000-4000 mg per day will reduce the severity and shorten the duration of the common cold. Increasing the dose to 10,000 mg per day is required for more severe colds and in cases of mild to moderate influenza.

Much larger doses are required for those moderately to seriously ill with the  Covid19 virus, especially if the patient is deteriorating. Doses of 100,000 mg and more have been given to seriously ill patients with, for example, viral pneumonia. These doses must be given intravenously. Please see the references below and the two 60 Minutes shows.

These dosing schedules are no different to the use of antibiotics for bacterial infections. A throat infection can be treated with low dose oral antibiotics. A lung infection will require much higher doses and if serious pneumonia occurs, IV injections. 

There are physicians in most countries who have been giving these high doses of vitamin C for many decades.  Hundreds of thousands of patients have benefited from intravenous vitamin C. Vitamin C is  recognised as a valid treatment by specifically and highly trained doctors in the medical profession.

Another vitamin, vitamin D, has been proven to protect people against many viruses including the influenza viruses and the corona viruses. This protection extends to significantly reducing the risks of serious viral pneumonia and death.

Kathy Hoekstra. “COMMENTARY: DOCTORS CAN FIGHT CORONAVIRUS IF POLITICIANS WILL LET THEM,” The Heartland Institute, March 27

There is a silver lining, however, in the numbers of people who are recovering from COVID-19 – more than 122,000 at this writing. Even great hope lies in a promising new treatment using a combination of old drugs:  Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) and a Z-Pak (azithromycin).

These well-known drugs have very favorable safety profiles. Several small studies have shown significant reduction in viral loads and symptom improvement when combining these medications in COVID-19 patients. Though these studies are small and do not prove efficacy, the results were so promising that the authors of the most famous study concluded: “We, therefore recommend that COVID-19 patients be treated with hydoxycholoroquine and azithromycin to cure their infection and to limit the transmission of the virus to other people in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the world.

[…]

Worse, the letter indicates healthcare providers are “required to report” their fellow physicians who are prescribing these medications. This draconian measure carries ominous Gestapo-like overtones of neighbor reporting neighbor to “authorities.” During a time of crisis, in which physicians continue to see patients despite not having enough protective gear, this threatening, authoritarian stance from a governor is counter-productive at best. What makes this directive more of a head-scratcher is that the same day the state issued its threatening nastygram to Michigan’s health care providers, Whitmer’s counterpart in New York started clinical trials of the very same drugs.

The implications of Gov. Whitmer and her administration’s knee-jerk scare tactics should terrify all Michiganders. Not only is our state’s top leader threatening the selfless healthcare workers who are on the frontline trying to save lives, but she’s denying possible life-saving medications to actual COVID-19 victims.”

DONTS AND DOS ON CORONAVIRUS,” Heartland Institute, March 17

Don’t rush out and get a flu shot. I know, a lot of doctors and public health authorities urge everybody to do this. Influenza can kill you, and the flu shot decreases that risk by 30% to 60%—but there is evidence that it can make COVID-19 worse, both from the earlier SARS epidemic and lab research. “\

[…]

Don’t demand to be tested and rely on the results. The tests are still in short supply and not very accurate. If you are at low risk, a positive test is likely to be a false positive. And if you are infected, the test may be negative at first. We need much more testing—mainly for public health monitoring.

[…]

Don’t waste. Expired medications are probably still good. Most drugs or essential ingredients are made in China, and supplies are running out. Masks (also mostly made in China) are meant to be disposable, but likely can’t be replaced […]

Shock: Govt Study Proves Flu Vaccination Link To Coronavirus,” Principia Scientific International, March 21, 2020

The study shockingly reveals the flu vaccine INCREASES your risk from  coronavirus.

Were We Inadvertently Killing Our Parents And Grandparents By Encouraging Them To Take Annual Flu Shots?

In the light of the findings of an important US military study, this may be the Big Question posed when the coronavirus pandemic post mortem is due.

[…]

Being that the above is verified government data involving medical research performed on thousands of govt employees, it therefore stands as empirical proof that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must thereby be mandated to immediately announce that anyone who has had a flu shot should be notified urgently to consider self isolation quarantine.  

The COVID-19 pandemic may yet prove to be the smoking gun of how the global elite planned to apply a ‘solution’ to solve the problem of the ever-growing pensions crisis and spiraling health care costs caused by an aging population.

Dr. David Agus: 5 Things To Know About Coronavirus Treatment,” Principia Scientific International, March 22

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine were approved by the FDA more than 50 years ago and are widely available. Dr. Agus told us that if a patient has tested positive for COVID-19, he would advise them to talk to their doctor today about its potential role: “This drug is hope personified to every person with disease, especially the people who are higher risk or elderly.”

Take Sambucol-Coronovirus Self-Assistance – Part 1,” Principia Scientific International, March 21

As a good starting point, I would suggest Sambucol.  This alternative health food product has been around for decades and is available in extract, liquid, tab and pill forms and has been used as an old folk remedy in Europe and Africa going back centuries.  It is an extract of Elderberry and its quite drinkable.

Many studies have been conducted on it and found it to be beneficial against many different types of flu viruses, none have been conducted on Coronavirus of course, but seeing as Coronavirus is a flu type virus, it seems perfectly reasonable that a cheap, easily available product which assists against one type may also be of benefit against another type.  It can’t hurt and it tastes great too, so why not?“

Dr Ron Paul suggests the coronavirus as a government-promoted hoax. His warning warrants wide consideration, not only because of Paul’s political insight, but also because he is qualified to speak on this as a medical doctor. He writes as follows:

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Is Extending Lockdowns Worth The Cost? (was Do Lockdowns Work?)” Watts Up With That, April 1

Given that being medically prepared is the over-riding issue, how about we

a) stop this mad stay-at-home failed experiment,

b) get America back to work,

c) continue with all the precautions we spent all this time learning, wash my hands, don’t touch my face, no sex with fruit bats, go back to disposable plastic grocery bags, social distancing, and most importantly, spend that trillion we just saved on d) …

… you know … urgently, four-alarm urgently, wartime production urgently, getting medically prepared for the wave that we’re damn sure is going to break? Buy field hospitals. Pre-position them. Stockpile ventilators. How many field hospitals does the Army have? Put them all on standby to be rushed to an overloaded city. Buy test kits. Pay double pre-war prices for everything if some people can provide it in a crazy rush. GET READY … and critically …

END THE AMERICAN LOCKDOWN!!! We cannot afford a dead economy costing us a trillion a week.
