The establishment nannies who run YouTube have struck again. This time they have removed the video of a compelling COVID-19 briefing by two California physicians who question the effectiveness and advisability of the social distancing lockdown that is well on its way to destroying our nation. I saw the video before YouTube made it disappear. The doctors spoke rationally and cited the available data in making a convincing case that the lockdown is, in fact, ineffective, medically contraindicated, and the exact opposite of sound public health policy. They also questioned why physicians are being pressured to classify deaths as being the result of COVID-19 in cases in which there are other more likely causes.
After several million views, YouTube removed the video for violating its “community guidelines.” Apparently these guidelines require the suppression of any dissenting viewpoints that challenge the prevailing official orthodoxy.
For a while, this briefing was posted on MSN.com, but, as of today, if you click on the link to that website you will receive this message: “We’re sorry, this video is not available.”
Fortunately the doctors’ presentation can still be accessed — at least for now — by clicking on this AIR.TV link. It runs for about an hour and is certainly worth your while. I found it to be so interesting and well-delivered that the time passed quickly.
So, take a look and — here’s a novel and dangerous idea — decide for yourself whether or not these doctors make sense.
But, before you watch the briefing, there is a video of researcher Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., regarding what she claims is the corruption of modern medical research by an unholy alliance of large pharmaceutical companies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and other moneyed interests to discourage and suppress the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 while promoting a strategy of developing and using new vaccines and treatments of questionable benefit and potential harm. According to her, this strategy is calculated to yield massive royalties and profits for the patent holders and manufacturers of these new drugs and vaccines. In making her argument, she takes direct aim at Dr. Tony Fauci, director of NIAID, and Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC.
I have no information regarding Dr. Mikovits and offer no endorsement of her views save that I share her concerns about the efforts to discourage the use of hydroxychloroquine, which has overwhelmingly proven to be a safe and successful treatment for COVID-19. In any event, Dr. Mikovits appears to be a rational and serious person, and, at the very least, she is entitled to be seen and heard. You can view her interview below. Again, take a look and decide for yourself if she is making sense.
But you better hurry. Something tells me that Dr. Mikovits is about to take a trip down the YouTube memory hole for violating “community standards.”
UPDATE: Well, that didn’t take long. Within two hours of this article being published online, Dr. Mikovits’ video was removed “for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.”
Again, I make no representations regarding the truth or falsity of her narrative. But, if YouTube doesn’t want us to hear her story, that’s good enough for me. So, you can access an equally inflammatory and alarming video of Dr. Mikovits on the BitChute website by clicking on this link. It runs 30 minutes and presents a framework for questioning why the use of inexpensive hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 has been shunted aside by those who are pushing for the much more lucrative development, manufacture, sale, and use of so-far untested vaccines and drugs.
Anyone want to bet on how long it will take before she gets de-platformed again?
For those who would like a less evanescent presentation of her story, Dr. Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively, JD have co-authored Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science (foreword by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.) in which she details her chilling accusations against the medical research establishment. At least for now, it is available in hardback through Amazon.com.
Who knows? If sales take off, our establishment betters may have to bring back good, old-fashioned physical book burnings.
For our own good, of course.
