February 16, 2020
As I’ve shown in recent articles (archive here), the virus hunters have fallen far short of proving a coronavirus is causing this “outbreak.” But here come the antiviral drugs.
They’re ordinarily used for other diseases (malaria, HIV) or, in one case, no disease yet (unapproved, unlicensed). But it’s time for “heroic measures.” A better term would be “reckless experimentation.”
Public health officials are expressing a mixture of hope and…vampire-ish worry that the epidemic may not last long enough to properly test the efficacy of the drugs.
LA Times, 2/13/2020, “Doctors fight coronavirus outbreak with drugs that target HIV, malaria and Ebola”:
—Characterizing the remarks of a Harvard professor of medicine, the Times author writes: “The lack of certainty surrounding treatment for coronaviruses is partly due to the boom-and-bust nature of outbreaks — they can spread like wildfire and then disappear… Although that is good for the public’s health, it also means scientists sometimes don’t have the time or the means to thoroughly test a treatment in humans.” Tsk, tsk, what a shame.
Here’s another telling quote from the Times article: “The ramp-up in [drug] research and investments into outbreaks can wreak havoc on private drug companies, especially if the virus disappears at some point, as SARS did, said Dr. Jesse Goodman, a professor of medicine at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The federal government helps offset these costs through initiatives…” What do you know about that? The SARS virus “disappeared.” And pity the poor drug companies. Their research was interrupted.
Among the drugs suddenly being used on people diagnosed with the coronavirus: Kaletra (anti-HIV); chloroquine (anti-malaria); remdesivir (unapproved, anti-Ebola).
rxlist.com provides a list of adverse effects of Kaletra:
* stomach upset
* a bad taste in the mouth
* trouble sleeping
* skin rash
* changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and waist)
“Tell your doctor if you have serious side effects of Kaletra including”:

* signs of a nerve problem known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (such as difficulty breathing/swallowing/moving your eyes, drooping face, paralysis, slurred speech)
* increased thirst
* increased urination
* persistent nausea or vomiting
* stomach or abdominal pain
* yellowing eyes or skin
* dark urine

Adverse effects of remdesivir—the drug has not been approved for public use. I find at least one human clinical trial has been done on people “infected by the Ebola virus,” and another clinical trial is underway now. So far, I see no published list of adverse effects—probably because the drug is still in the test phase. Using this drug on “coronavirus patients” would certainly be experimental.
This is what I’m sitting here picturing: A person in Wuhan, who is having respiratory problems, owing to the unprecedented mixture of toxic pollutants in the air of the city, enters a clinic. He is given a chest CT Scan. He’s told he has a lung infection—pneumonia. Because a CT Scan is now absurdly sufficient for a diagnosis of “epidemic coronavirus,” he is given that label. NO test for the purported coronavirus is done. The person is shunted into a treatment room, and a doctor tells him his condition is quite serious, and he will be treated with a drug: chloroquine.
Go back and read the list of adverse effects again.
Suppose this patient tells his doctor he has a relative who lives out in the country, where the air is much better, and he wants to stay with her.
The doctor will, of course, tell the patient this is not possible. The city is locked down. If the patient left Wuhan, he could “spread the virus to others.”
He will be given the drug. What about informed consent? Will the doctor read the patient the complete list of adverse effects? Are you kidding? Wouldn’t that be “counter-productive?”
Mustn’t interrupt the “research” of pharmaceutical companies.
We can only hope and pray the “epidemic” is SAID TO LAST long enough so these benevolent corporations can complete their testing. What else is a pool of human guinea pigs for?
And worry not, the pill kings have their bases covered. When “test subjects” become sicker or die, the kings can simply say, “The coronavirus was responsible.”
It all works out for the best, doesn’t it?
We haven’t even gotten to the coronavirus vaccine yet. The professionals are working hard on cooking one up. When they do, there will be no danger of an interruption in their work, if “the virus disappears.” The vaccine will be injected into healthy people. If and when some of these people keel over, all sorts of reasons can be trotted out: underlying genetic condition; the coronavirus hidden in their cells suddenly activated; undisclosed immune-system deficiency; an unrelated disease; allergic cross-reaction; and, of course, “a rare and unavoidable adverse effect among all the life-saving injections given, at no charge, to the global population…”
I’m looking through mainstream articles. I’m trying to find one that publishes the complete lists of adverse effects of the experimental drugs now being deployed on “coronavirus” patients. Odd. I can’t find one. I wonder what that means. Maybe I should ask a doctor. He would possibly be able to set me straight. Perhaps I should query a public communications pro at a pharmaceutical company. Certainly, he could contact major press outlets and urge them to print the adverse-effect lists, in the interest of full disclosure.

…wiping out The People,
one way or another.
What is amazing,
reading this Piece,
Written just before the lockdown,
& now with “normal hindsight,”
Of Our National Present Disturbia,
A medical perspective was actually rendered then,
As to the potential likely sufferers,
I mean now.
Wait a sec’.
I’m not sure about the chloroquine side effects because hydroxychloroquine has almost none and has been on the list of world essential medicines for the past 70 years.
A Reader emailed me the following comment:
Well we can make our own chloroquine which is mostly quinine, just be boiling up organic lemon and grapefruit rinds and drinking the liquid. It’s natural and not at all harmful. Whatever the drug companies are calling ‘chloroquine ‘ is not quinine or even hydroxychloroquine, when combined with Oxygen. Quinine is actually good for you.
The first ‘cured’ patients out of Chinese hospitals were treated with a Traditional Chinese Medicine combination called qingfei paidutang 清肺合剂
Not that you will hear anything positive about TCM from the Pharma dominated MSM.
The last DG of WHO to thoroughly support traditional medicines had a sudden unexpected ‘heart attack’ after asking Prince Charles to give a talk to the WHO on the subject, on the eve of the conference.
After which the WHO was infiltrated by Pharma interests, then by Chinese interests.
So it goes.
Chloroquine (synthetic, thus patentable, quinine derivative) was dropped due to its adverse effect profile.
It has been supplanted by hydroxychloroquine, which is far more innocent.
This is a zinc ionophore, and will not work properly without sufficient zinc in the system.
Incidentally, quinine was the first homeopathic remedy to be introduced and studied by Hahnemann.
Homeopathy has a very good history in managing epidemics, although the pseudo-skeptics cannot accept it (with their follow-my-leader thinking and Pharma monopoly bias).
In the 1918-1919 ‘flu, according to US military records, patients lucky enough to be sent for homeopathic treatment had a 99% cure rate. Of those sent for “conventional” treatment, one in three died.
NO-one has died from homeopathy within living memory. Although there are false reports from pseudo-skeptics.
According to several studies (Starfield Report, and Harvard papers on death-by-medicine), conventional medicine itself is the third leading CAUSE of death in the US and presumably the Western world. The US CDC won’t report this because “there is no insurance code for death by medicine”. But then they are a corrupt, captive agency.
So the US FDA has devoted its recent efforts to try effectively to ban homeopathy (or put it in the hands of Pharma monopolists). On the basis of prejudice and false pseudo-skeptic opinion.
“Reckless experimentation” has been going on since Fast Eddie Jenner shot horse, pig and cow venereal PUSS into people.
Edger March Crookshank put the fraudulent idea of vaccines to rest in 1889.
Biological Research started in 1930
What most do not think about is ALL THE OTHER POLLUTION that is injected.
Nearly all or ALL modern diseases are not of nature but have been injected into us.
We ALL have been Pre-Assassinated.
If Crookshank’s words were heeded the entire Polio fiasco would have been avoided.
Fortunately, a lot people have realized that viruses are fictitious monsters created to terrorize the public into taking vaccines.
All vaccines must be banned forever.
Remdesivir killed my younger brother last year. The doctor told his wife that he had an allergic reaction to it. He was dead within hours of taking it.
Prior to that, he had been admitted to the hospital to be treated for Covid. When I talked to his wife on a Sunday evening, she said he was getting better and was going to go pick him up on Tuesday. After I talked to her, the doctor treating him decided to speed up things by giving him the Remdesivir. I got a call from her at about 4am that next morning saying he was gone. I was in total shock. Later she told me what the doctor told her. Of course they counted it as a Covid death.
