HCQ Helps Contain COVID-19 Cases:
New Evidence and a Major Retraction

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 7/14/2020 9:14:43 AM

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) — the controversial COVID-19 treatment touted by President Donald Trump — might be gaining new traction in the fight against the Wuhan coronavirus. The latest positive results come from Vadodara, India, where city officials have conducted a major study involving more than 300,000 people, including “health workers and other frontline staff.” Local health official Dr. Devesh Patel told the paper, “It has shown positive results. We have the numbers and not one person has complained of complications. (Snip) While HCQ is no miracle cure, the evidence continues to mount that the drug is a safe and effective treatment or prophylactic measure against COVID-19

Comments:

Later in the piece several people, including Tom Fitton, point out that many U.S. doctors and other people in the know have been taking HCQ all along while disparaging it for us ordinary mortals.

FTA: "“There are conflicting studies about the use of HCQ. While initially the US studies rejected it and cited side-effects, European countries backed its prophylactic use." Uh that's because the US studies were bogus and have been exposed as such. Gee wiz, might explain why HCQ appears to be geographically selective.

The answer is obvious, no one is going to get rich settling HCQ...

I tried to get my doctor to prescribe HCQ as a prophylactic and he was not allowed. The government has is under tight control. What does that tell you. The doctors should be handing this stuff out like candy but that might just be an end to this panicdemic and we wouldn't want to have that. Nov 4, 2020 HCQ will be available if not mandatory to all that want it.

How many people died, unnecessarily, due to the politically charged environment from the Left demanding nothing be deemed positive, or good, if it may help this President? The study that many used to stop allowing the FDA to issue their emergency order allowing doctors to prescribe HCQ has been retracted, thus, should be re-instated immediately.

If President Trump never mentioned it, HCQ would have been regularly used, saving people's lives. Shame on the Dems and the media!

As presented, this is a very weak study. We'll have to wait for a formal publication to assess whether it has any value.

Untill a few months ago, HCQ was an unknown, been around for a long time (on the market since the 50s, generic since the late 90s). Unless you were trying not to get malaria, get over it, or had rhematoid arthritis, you probably never even heard of the drug. I actually sold the drug for several years of my pharmaceutical career. For most of those years, it was a drug we didn't promote, but still sold $20-30 million a year (in the late 80s). Some wise guy in the late 80s decided we should get back to promoting it and did well enough to get generic competition. Only major side effect was a rare occurence of macular denegeration after many years of use. Any patient prescribed the drug for long-term RA was instructed to see an eye doctor at the start of treatment and at least annually to monitor any side effects. Basically, it is a drug with a known safety/adverse events profile. In the world of drug side effects, it's pretty benign. And it's relatively cheap. Based on the drugs.com discount card, 100 of them should run you around $37. Take it with AZT (Z-Pack) and Zinc, both also cheap drugs and you're out $50-$100 tops. Less with insurance plans. Some of the other touted treatments are in the thousands of dollars. I think HCQ and its compadres are a good first-try. Cheap, safe, and with some reports of efficacy. Yeah, we need more studies, but antidotal evidence is about all we have now.

The Left/MSM is responsible for the deaths of tens of THOUSANDS because they obstructed physicians from prescribing it to their patients despite (or because of) President Trump's assurances of its efficacy, claiming more testing was needed. It was approved as safe decades ago for the treatment of Malaria. Politicians and others involved should be held personally liable by those who lost loved ones and made to give up their personal wealth for their completely political opposition. Many should go to prison!

‘So when did your family convert to Christianity?’ asked an American General early on in the occupation of Iraq. ‘About two thousand years ago,’ replied the Iraqi. The Middle Eastern culture and context of Christ is something that the Western Church seems happy to forget. That Jesus was very specifically a Jew is something we have found even more difficult – as Christianity’s uncomfortable bouts of anti-Semitism have shown. It is because of this that the new Archbishop of York’s claim this week in an interview with the Sunday Times that ‘Jesus was a black man’ is so unfortunate. The plight of Middle Eastern Christians should be a matter of outrage

At the end of The Unheavenly City: The Nature and the Future of Our Urban Crisis (1968), Edward Banfield presents a prospect regarding race relations that seems to have been fulfilled since his tumultuous years and ours: a reign of error. Let me set the stage. America had become the wealthiest nation in the history of the world, and the wealth was making its way to the lower classes also. Thus the main “accidental factor” that had locked Americans in a vicious cycle of white discrimination and prejudice on one side and low standards and attainments for blacks on the other would be largely alleviated.

After Anti-Hydroxychloroquine Hysteria

Posted by Judy W. 7/6/2020 5:24:33 PM Post Reply
Last week, a new peer-reviewed study of hydroxychloroquine’s effectiveness at treating the coronavirus was published, and it found that the drug significantly reduced mortality rates. And by significantly, I mean it literally cut the mortality rate by more than half. The study also determined that despite previous reports, there were no adverse effects on the heart. President Trump has been touting hydroxychloroquine as a potential game-changer since mid-March after small studies showed it potentially served as an effective treatment for coronavirus patients. (Snip) Since then, the media has desperately tried to undercut Trump’s positive message about hydroxychloroquine’s potential as a treatment for the coronavirus, calling it “unproven” and claiming there’s “no proof”

Friday’s celebration at Mount Rushmore reminded me of Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” where after a wild witches’ sabbath, church bells ring, the sun comes out and the witches vanish. For weeks now we’ve watched the Antifa-BLM-just plain thugs and looters’ witches’ sabbath -- rampaging through our streets, defacing and destroying treasured memorials, looting, shooting, beating innocents and murdering them. Not a single Democrat leader has condemned these things, choosing instead to pretend these are peaceful protests against police brutality. Every four years they gin up some incident to create the impression that this is a racist society that requires radical reformation and conservatives are to blame.

Anytime things go from widely disputed to sudden, virtually-overnight national “scientific consensus,” it’s probably a good idea to be a wee bit skeptical. (Snip) No, the ongoing, relentless, unceasing crusade to force every American to wear masks to “stop the spread” of coronavirus isn’t about to end anytime soon, if ever. Even with deaths declining, they keep the pot stirred up with panic porn about spikes in new cases and hospitalizations in southern and western states. Nevermind the fact that the so-called “surge” in hospitalizations in Texas turned out to be, as Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel noted, mostly people getting “elective” surgeries that had long been delayed

President Trump had a great riff at his rally the other day in Phoenix. It was all about “abolish,” about how the Left wants to abolish the police, ICE, bail, even borders. Trump’s riff is effective because it is true. The Left has gone off the deep end, and they’re taking the Democrats with them. Well, there’s another “abolish” the president can add to his list, and it just might be enough to tip the scales this November. Joe Biden and the Democrats want to abolish America’s suburbs. Biden and his party have embraced yet another dream of the radical Left: a federal takeover, transformation, and de facto urbanization of

By now, millions know the story of Selina Soule, the high school track star from Connecticut who missed qualifying for the New England track and field regionals by two spots in her top event. Those two spots were taken by biological boys who identify as girls. Soule, who is wise beyond her years, was well aware that she could face consequences for speaking out about being forced to compete against biological males. But she recognized a greater need.

At this point, maybe Hillary is tripling down or quadrupling down. She is still beating a dead horse – the loser of the 2016 presidential election wanted the viewers of Trevor Noah’s late-night television show to know that Trump’s victory was illegitimate and she has thoughts or something. She doesn’t have any new thoughts, mind you, but she is bitterly clinging to her old thoughts. Watching a video of the interview, it is easy for anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election or is old enough to remember the administration of Bill Clinton to understand the irony in most of Hillary’s answers to the softball questions asked by Noah.
