‘I’m a doctor and I fear we will never regain the public’s trust after Covid’, by R.M. Huffman

The medical establishment has been one Covid lie after another, and how many doctors can say that the patients who’ve received the vaccines they’ve administered were exercising informed consent. From R.M. Huffman at rt.com:

‘I’m a doctor and I fear we will never regain the public’s trust after Covid’
One undeniable outcome of the pandemic is that the public’s faith in scientific and medical authorities is perhaps at its lowest point in living memory – and no objective observer can truly be surprised.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the US President’s Chief Medical Adviser Dr Anthony Fauci and US Surgeon General Dr Jerome Adams told us not to wear masks, until they instructed us to wear one everywhere we went.

The Covid vaccines were declared to be effective at preventing the spread of disease, until breakthrough cases around the globe proved that wasn’t so, and that effectiveness was downgraded to “against hospitalization and death.”

Both The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, two of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have issued embarrassing retractions to widely publicized papers eventually found to have too little validity to be published.

Anyone who suggested that the pandemic originated in a Wuhan laboratory and not a Chinese wet market was labeled a conspiracy theorist by official sources who later had to admit they were possibly correct. The same proved true for everyone who accused Fauci and the National Institutes of Health of funding gain-of-function research at the lab: they were crazy, until they were right.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists urged all pregnant women to be vaccinated, asserting that the new injections were completely safe. Now, a new review of that same data suggests that one in eight women spontaneously aborted her pregnancy after getting the jab.

Even medical terms – such as ‘herd immunity’, and the word ‘vaccine’ itself – have literally been redefined over the past few months.

The Treason of the Healers, by Thomas Harrington

Most of the medical profession are accomplices to one of the greatest crimes in history. From Thomas Harrington at brownstone.org:

In 1927, the French intellectual Julien Benda published La Trahison des Clercs which has been translated to English as The Betrayal (and sometimes the Treason) of the Intellectuals. The book is a searing indictment of the role played by intellectuals from both sides of the First World War in fanning the flames of that devastating conflict which raised the threshold of man’s capacity for murder and destruction to theretofore unimaginable levels.

For Benda, the great and unpardonable sin of the intellectuals in both Germany and France was to abandon the imperative to generate “disinterested” knowledge, and to instead lend their talents and prestige to tasks of promoting home-borne chauvinism on one hand, and the systematic denigration of the enemy’s culture and citizens on the other.

The rise of the figure of the intellectual, as we understand it today, is intimately linked to two interlocking historical processes from the last third of the 19th century: the rapid secularization of society and the rise of the daily newspaper.

In effect, as citizens began to leave the church and its leaders behind, they redirected their desire for transcendence toward the daily press and its new secular “clerics.” These new spiritual leaders, in turn, had to decide, as had their predecessors in ancient Israel, Greece and Rome before them, how to exercise their newfound power.

Was it their job to shore up the positive spirit of the collective in the age of the nation-state? Or was it to reveal to their parishioner-readers the stark truths of their time?

Given the enormous stakes in the matter, the second option was, for Benda, the only morally acceptable one.

As the twentieth century advanced, the turn-of-the-century writer was gradually supplanted at the apex of the new social communion by the man of science, and especially, by the figure of the physician. Given the exigencies of the scientific method, an adherence to a disinterested search for knowledge should have, if anything, become even more important for such people than it had been for the “lettered” objects of Benda’s ire.

However, it did not take long to discover that the newly ascendant men of science were just as prone as Benda’s treasonous writers to abuse the institutional powers conferred on them by society and the state in order to pursue narrowly subscribed, and often deeply inhumane, campaigns of bullying and/or human experimentation.

Get ready for the brain drain from US healthcare, by Simon Black

Medicine as a line of work grows increasingly unpalatable from a financial, quality of work, intrinsic rewards, and moral perspective. From Simon Black at sovereignman.com:

Between 1956 and 1960, 600 doctors annually emigrated from the UK to find employment in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries.

At the time, the UK was graduating about 1,800 doctors annually— meaning about a third of new doctors were leaving the county.

A 1962 paper published in the British Medical Journal tried to explain this trend:

“A possible explanation of the phenomenon is that practice in the National Health Service is relatively unattractive to young doctors economically, professionally, and idealistically.”

The number of British doctors leaving to practice abroad increased sharply in 1946, after the UK implemented its socialized healthcare system.

Even today the UK is still dealing with overworked and underpaid doctors who quit the NHS to find greener pastures abroad.

In fact a 2016 survey from the British Medical Association found that 90% of junior doctors would be willing to quit over a pay dispute with the government.

To fill the gap, the UK relies on foreign-born doctors. Over 28% of NHS doctors are not of British nationality. But even still the system is short-staffed by about 100,000 positions.

Because of these failures, as of April, about 4.7 million patients in the UK were sitting on wait-lists until the NHS can get around to treating them.

Now the US is trying to one-up the UK by engineering an even bigger shortage of healthcare professionals.

New York’s governor has already declared a State of Emergency due to hospital worker shortages, because tens of thousands were fired for refusing to take the [unmentionable word that starts with a ‘V’].

One hospital had to stop delivering babies because they lost too many healthcare workers in their maternity ward.

Now that Hunter Biden’s dad has issued a national order, this problem is only going to intensify.

Healthcare professionals who choose to make their own personal health decisions— the same people who were celebrated last year a front-line heroes— are now being fired or forced to resign because of this mandate.

That’s bad enough.

Poster Boy, by James Howard Kunstler

What is the point of the Democrats’ drive to destroy the country? The destruction is the point, and there is no other. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Maybe Dr. Sanjay Gupta was born at night — but surely not last night. Apparently, CNN’s house doctor went into his interview on the Joe Rogan Experience with eyes wide shut. Did his handlers and preppers not have a clue that Joe would give Sanjay the business about CNN’s deliberate, incessant, and epic lying in the service of forces that seek to destroy the country, its people, and western civ with them?

The issue was Mr. Rogan declaring publicly that he took ivermectin with a suite of other drugs to get over Covid-19 in a few days’ time and then CNN’s defaming of the Nobel Prize winning drug as “horse de-wormer,” and defaming Joe Rogan for taking it. CNN’s bad faith propaganda plays a key role in the dishonest and untrustworthy campaign by America’s public health officialdom, led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, to prevent the clinically-proven ivermectin early treatment protocol from being recognized by the FDA, because doing so would nullify the FDA’s emergency use authorization for the still-unapproved Covid-19 “vaccines.”

It was painful to watch Sanjay wriggle and try to squirm away from the accusation that his network lies knowingly to the public (and that he abets it). “It’s a lie that they’re conscious of, it’s not a mistake,” Joe Rogan said, pithing the famous TV doc like a common carpet moth. “You know that they know they’re lying,” he pressed on. “Do you think that’s a problem, that your news network lies?”

Yeah, it’s a problem, Sanjay finally admitted, lamely. And it’s no small problem that the nation’s community of doctors has allowed itself to be buffaloed into killing tens-of-thousands of patients across the land who are denied life-saving treatments, while harming and killing many others with “vaccines” which deliver toxic spike proteins that damage blood vessels and organs.

First, Do No Harm . . . by Eric Peters

Even if the Covid medications touted in the alternative media—Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, etc.—are all completely worthless, the don’t, consistent with the Hippocratic oath, cause harm. The same certainly can’t be said for the vaccines. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Remember that one?

It was – once – the prime directive of medicine, enshrined in the Hippocratic Oath. Doctors were enjoined to treat their patients conservatively, in a manner that presented the least risk to them. People who weren’t sick weren’t enjoined to take medicines they didn’t need, especially when there were safer alternatives in the event they did become sick.

This fostered trust in doctoring, which was once upon a better time an honorable profession.

It has become a mercenary and political profession – driven by the lash of HMOs and fear of the American Medical Association, beholden to corporate McHospital chains and conglomerates  that are, in turn, financially beholden to the same corporate cartels that push the products of the pharmaceutical cartels upon the populace, initially via the TeeVee – ask your doctor about Zipthoria – and now via government and the corporate employer matrix that is effectively the same thing as government except worse because you can’t vote for a different one.

By putting Big Pharma’s patents before patients, doctors will further erode trust in experts, by Jonathan Cook

Many doctors have only one answer for Covid-19: vaccines. However, many patients are discovering other answers on their own. From Jonathan Cook at jonathan-cook.net:

I have spent the past several years on this blog trying to highlight one thing above all others: that the institutions we were raised to regard as authoritative are undeserving of our blind trust.

It is not just that expert institutions have been captured wholesale by corporate elites over the past 40 years and that, as a result, knowledge, experience and expertise have been sidelined in favour of elite interests – though that is undoubtedly true. The problem runs deeper: these institutions were rarely as competent or as authoritative as we fondly remember them being. They always served elite interests.

What has changed most are our perceptions of institutions that were once beloved or trusted. It is we who have changed more than the institutions. That is because we now have far more sources – good and bad alike – than ever before against which we can judge the assertions of those who claim to speak with authority.

Hanging out together

Here is a personal example. When I started work as an editor at the foreign section of the Guardian newspaper in the early 1990s, there were few ways, from the paper’s London head office, to independently evaluate or scrutinise the presentation of events by any of our correspondents in their far-flung bureaus. All we could do was compare the copy they sent with that from other correspondents, either published in rival newspapers or available from two or three English-language wire services.
