Beyond Stupid, Beyond TDS. Actual Evil

Ohio Rep: Charge Trump “Crimes Against Humanity” For Promoting HCQ + Z-Pack


Can’t spell pandemic without “dem” “panic”.
So fan the flames of fear 24-7, and use everything as a political weapon because OrangeManBad. And play can-you-top-this with both the batshit crazy ideas and the marching jackboots of excessive governmental power.

A Democratic state representative in Ohio said she “can’t take it anymore” and vowed to refer President Trump to the International Criminal Court for “crimes against humanity” over Trump’s promotion of a drug that has not been conclusively proven to fight the coronavirus.

State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing. The drug, normally used to treat malaria, is one of several that the president has pointed to as showing promise in the fight against COVID-19, but its effectiveness has been a subject of debate.

And do you know why this has been a subject of debate? Because President Trump suggested it. At which point every TDS sufferer in the world started screaming about how terrible, worthless, and dangerous it is. And all the stick-in-the-mud Deep Staters and change-resistant process addicts in the medical world chimed right in. Aided by the DemMSM, who cannot mention the treatment without pimping up how “risky” it is.

It does not matter to them at all that the rest of the world is using this approach and finding moderate or better levels of success. It does not matter that hundreds of millions of people have taken chloroquine, often for decades each, for more than 70 years with almost no significant side effects or negative reactions. Or that doctors have been handing out azithromycin, aka Z-Pack, for more than 20 years, also with negligible side effect. So even if this combo is mostly ineffective it will be at least innocuous.  But every report from everywhere about how it does actually work, and quite well thank you, is dismissed out of hand as “merely anecdotal” or “at best subjective” because Official Medicine hasn’t done a 10 year long multi-part billion dollar study. Field data from all over the work doesn’t count. Because they are all frightened little bunnies who can only follow process and have no ability to think on their own or take the slightest chance on something new. Because malpractice?

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski said. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

The Hague is the site of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which boasts 123 state parties. The United States is not one of them. Only member states or non-members who accept the ICC’s jurisdiction can make referrals. Alternatively, the United Nations Security Council can also refer a matter for investigation.

“Crimes against humanity” is a category of offense that the ICC handles. The court provides a list of crimes that fall under this, including murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, and “other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.”

Fox News asked Rep. Galonski if there is a specific crime she is accusing Trump of committing, and how she plans on pursuing charges given the United States’ non-member status. She did not immediately respond.

Galonski is not the only one to question Trump’s promotion of hydroxychloroquine, given that the FDA has not approved it—or any other drugs—specifically for treating COVID-19.

See? Even FoxNews can’t resist playing the Danger! Danger! Danger! card. No, the FDA has not approved it for this specifically. But they have approved it for this “off label”. Do you want to wait a decade, and possibly be long dead from COVID, or would you be willing to take an infinitesimal risk that just might save your life?

Hey, how about we have DOJ or Congress pass a quick rule that exempts doctors and hospitals from malpractice for using this - as specified by international dosage regimens - as an Off Label approach. Hell yeah. Give me HCQ, Z-Pack, Zinc, and Vitamins C, D, and the B complexes.

Dr. Antony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the data is “at best suggestive.”

Fauci said he does not think “we could definitely say it works,” noting that in some cases there has been “no effect,” and in others it may have been effective.

I am beyond tired of the lies and the dirty politics and the finger pointing. Not one of these flaming lunatics understands what Stand Together or National Emergency means. I’m past the point of logical discourse and response, not that logical discourse with these people was ever even possible in the first place. They are traitors, and they are evil. As I’ve written for years, if you aren’t one of them they want you dead. And now is there big chance. And maybe a huge-ass part of this national shut-down, this lock down, this deliberate economic suicide, is all to Get Trump. More and more I believe that every damn day.




UPDATE: and here’s one more easily dismissable bit of anecdote:

A Los Angeles doctor said he is seeing significant success in prescribing the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc to treat patients with severe symptoms of COVID-19.

Hydroxychloroquine has been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19 by President Trump among others, but it remains controversial as some experts believe it is unproven and may not be effective.

The drug has long been used for treatment of malaria and conditions such as lupus and arthritis but is not technically approved by the FDA for COVID-19. The agency, however, is encouraging trials and has provided limited emergency authorization for its use to treat COVID-19 patients.

Dr. Anthony Cardillo said he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients.

“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free,” Cardillo told Eyewitness News. “So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, which has locations in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Burbank.

He said he has found it only works if combined with zinc. The drug, he said, opens a channel for the zinc to enter the cell and block virus replication.

He added that the drug should not be prescribed for those who are presenting only mild symptoms, as there are concerns about shortages for patients with other conditions who need to take the drug on a regular basis.

Note that: it isn’t that this won’t work as a prophylactic or for low level cases, it’s just that there might not be enough of it to go around. For now. We could use another 4 billion pills please.



PS: phrase du jour: analysis paralysis. We’re seeing this 24-7 from the talking heads who can’t put TDS or “that’s how we’ve always done things” behind them.

PPS: I won’t call it anti-anecdotal evidence
, but HCQ trials and off label usage has been going on in this country for a couple of weeks now, to fight a virus that has a 14 day incubation period.
Don’t you think by now, that if this approach didn’t work, the enemy media would be screaming from the rafters how Tump Is Killing Us All?  You know they would. And yet, there’s total silence about this other than the “could be dangerous” talking heads. Which pretty much proves it works.

I’m tired of beating this dead horse even further into the ground. But this damn zombie pony won’t just lie there, and keeps getting up every hour or so.
