Attorney Thomas Willcutts disagrees with many of last week’s guest Gordon Duff‘s assertions about COVID-19. He argues that the “scientific consensus” supporting universal masking, lockdowns, Orwellian contact-tracing, and vaccines, and opposing HCQ, is questionable. Willcutts argues that propagandists “employ widespread control of media, fear, and anti-science ridicule, as well as pervasive control and policing of academic publishing and funding” to push self-interested perspectives and fabricate a “mainstream scientific consensus” on issues ranging from COVID to climate change to 9/11.

Thomas Willcutts disagrees with Gordon Duff’s claims that a consensus of experts agrees HCQ doesn’t work, and that dissident doctors are a tiny lunatic fringe. Willcutts says there is no evidence that treating physicians are opposed to HCQ, citing the largest study of what treating physicians are actually doing.

He writes:
“Gordon said the ‘Frontline Doctors’ was only a few whack jobs hand-selected by Trump, and he defended their being censored. And he said the doctors are 99% against HQ.

There is a Nationwide Organization of Physicians called AAPS – Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, which has been in existence since 1943 and has approximately 5,000 members Nationwide. They indicate that they are non-partisan, but they are criticized in Media for being ‘conservative’ or ‘right-wing.’ Both Ron Paul and Rand Paul were members, for example.

Anyway – they have filed a Lawsuit in Federal Court over the FDA’s and Federal Government’s handling of HQ.

https://aapsonline.org/judicial/aaps-v-fda-hcq-6-2-2020.pdf

And here is their statement about the censorship going on — you could have written it:

And here is an authentic, award-winning investigative journalist who looked into this question. I cannot imagine that Gordon has any rebuttal to this short presentation.

    “Scientific Consensus” is a tard detection phrase and I’m glad Kevin put it in quotes.

    If some guy in his basement in Jersey can repeatedly show that his theory is correct and can document his findings such that anyone else in the same conditions can repeat it, everyone else is wrong. Consensus is another one of those idiotic phrases democracy has imposed on us as a great value. There are near 8 billion people on the planet and maybe a a million of them are actually worth listening to for pressing matters of science, economics or mathematics. The fact that the grifter Fauci was put into such an important position as he was is proof enough that empirical science stopped mattering a long time ago.

    My mother used HCQ for decades for arthritis and lupus. She ate it like candy all those years. At 85 years old, she’s still going strong and is actually healthier than most people you see her age. The numbers are in, and the countries that embraced HCQ to treat COVID had remarkably successful results, while the haphazard fustercluck we had in the US was mainly due to misinformation, politics, and big pharma in my estimation. You can’t disagree with results. We probably could have saved 100,000 lives if we adapted a policy like Costa Rica or South Korea. A lot of politicians and “experts” need to be put up against the wall and shot for mass murder and crimes against humanity, or at least thrown is a dungeon for criminal negligence. But the politicians are so corrupt they can’t even stop violent riots and looting for political reasons. Only God can save us now. Save the last bullet for yourself.

  3. Why does Kevin make excuses for Gordon Duff? Gordon Duff has publicly proclaimed 40% of everything he says is false? Do you know what you call a person who lies 40% of the time? A LIAR and a FRAUD! Oh Gordie just can’t control himself because he has a visceral hatred of Trump, according to Kevin Barrett. You know what you call a personal who makes decisions based on irrational emotions? A crazy bitch.

  4. I fear becoming as tedious as Wally on the Holocaust or Onebornfree on government, I feel constrained to point out, however, that this is yet another example of the folly of having privately-owned pharmaceutical companies. (POPCs) The very idea is stupid on the face of it! The purpose of a POPC is to make money. Its purpose is not to make people well, it is to make the shareholders rich. It has very little incentive to fund research into cures, what it needs to make money reliably, is chronic disease and, preferably, expensive medicine to treat it. (To treat, that is, not to cure!) It has every incentive to “phase-out”, inexpensive medicines which can be replaced by more profitable alternatives. It has very little incentive to treat the diseases of the poor and very little incentive to find cures or even treatments for rare diseases.

    A POPC has every incentive to corrupt the agencies which license medicines and to persuade them to block trials of medicines or treatments which might cure chronic diseases. It has also the incentive to use its advertising budget to “persuade” medical journals to prevent publication of anything which might damage its bottom line (and does so). It has every incentive to send out salesmen to try to corrupt doctors into using the products of their company, rather than the cheaper equivalents from rival companies and to use their expensive compounds rather than cheaper alternatives. To a lesser extent the same sort of thing is true of private medical practice.

    That they are utterly without scruple is amply demonstrated by the epidemic of addiction to prescription drugs.

    I could go on to expound the benefits of nationalizing or better, internationalizing pharmaceutical research and production, but I am sure that readers of UR can work that out for themselves.

  5. You bozos have “opinions” if you can call the statements of morons “opinions.” (More like the flip of a coin.)

    I have facts.

    Covid-19 and Lasting Heart Damage

    This is a must read introductory article explaining the impacts of Covid-19 on your heart, even if you have no immediate symptoms of illness:

    Research reveals heart complications in COVID-19 patients

    https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/07/research-reveals-heart-complications-covid-19-patients

    The most important research study cited is this one here:

    Puntmann VO, Carerj ML, Wieters I, et al. Outcomes of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients Recently Recovered From Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). JAMA Cardiol. Published online July 27, 2020. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2020.3557

    CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE In this study of a cohort of German patients recently recovered from COVID-19 infection, CMR revealed cardiac involvement in 78 patients (78%) and ongoing myocardial inflammation in 60 patients (60%), independent of preexisting conditions, severity and overall course of the acute illness, and time from the original diagnosis. These findings indicate the need for ongoing investigation of the long-term cardiovascular consequences of COVID-19.

    Covid-19 is not merely a respiratory disease with no lasting impact.

    It is a circulatory disease capable of causing lasting damage to your heart, lungs, and central nervous and immunological systems.

    It produces a post-viral syndrome that has been clinically well-documented. It may destroy mitochondria.

    People are either re-infected or never clear the virus, resulting in the resurgence of troubling symptoms, as illustrated here:

    Philippine minister tests positive for virus for second time.
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/philippine-minister-tests-positive-virus-074945684.html

    We need to re-think the flu metaphor fast.

    What Phony Balony Corony 19, 20, 21, ……. does to hearts
    nothing compared what this everlasting, everywhere pest
    does to hemorrhoids.

    People are either re-infected or never clear the virus, resulting in the resurgence of troubling symptoms.

    This is now the life.

    ”Median patient age was 85”.
    Nothing new here then.
    CoV19 is just normal deaths making headlines.
    The propaganda is the real virus.

  8. @obwandiyag

    A plea for clarification: by “rethink” do you mean that we should or shouldn’t use the flu as a metaphor?

    Serious long-term effects from influenza are well-known and well-documented. So I’m assuming you mean that it’s an appropriate metaphor.

    But then again, it’s not really even a metaphor, because metaphors are symbolic associations between unlike things, rather than literal comparisons of directly related things.

    So in that respect, you’re absolutely right — the flu is a bad metaphor for CoVid-19. A metaphor would be comparing it to American Communism in the 1950s — something well worth taking measures against, but not to the hysterically dangerous extent that the government and media took it.

    Fuck you. You are an idiot and you are wrong, and the wrongest thing about you is how you think you’re all smart. Fatuousness at its finest. You don’t know a fucking thing about language, so don’t you dare presume to lecture me on it, you sophomoric dunce. Fuck you please with a cherry on top.

    @obwandiyag

    Well OBWAN, you certainly gave us a Postgrad level discourse on the eloquent use of language (eg., “Fuck You”), sophisticated, fact-based reasoning (“…you are wrong … you don’t know a Fucking Thing…”), ad hominem attacks (“… you think you are all smart … Fatuousness … sophomoric dunce…”) and the “… please … with a cherry on top” was a touching display of humility.

    You’ve managed to illustrate all the distinctive traits of a basement-dwelling Troll in a mere five sentences. Good work! But how long since you have changed out of your PJs and left your grandmother’s basement? I can’t imagine what it must smell like down there.

    Gordon Duff is one of those Cretans who, when they tell you they lie 40% of the time, is lying. Or at least exaggerating.

  14. @MOG

    Shitheads like you don’t deserve reasoning with. You will notice I used the words “sophomoric” and “fatuous.” That’s you, trotting out your little Rhetoric 101 terminology like some 18-year-old trying to pretend like some crap he picked up–as a sophomore–he thought up all by his self.

    You “bright” people are the worst. Because if you are stupid, and know it, you are brilliant. But if you are stupid, like you, and think you’re smart, then you are an imbecilic moronic cretin of the first water. Congratulations.
